The Flying Stars is an advanced system of Feng Shui that has been used for thousands of years. It recognizes the pattern of energy impressed upon every home and building the year it was built or last renovated. Think of it like a building birthday. It is why you see some houses falling apart, covered in vines, and deteriorating. When the chi is gone, the house is no longer viable for living in. Therefore it is so important to update your home to the current Period. Each Period is 20 years long and we have been in Period 8, a time of wealth and abundance since 2004. We will shift into Period 9 in 2024. At the least, following the annual and monthly Flying Stars allows you to dance with the ever changing chi so that you are in flow and balance with these energies not a victim to them.

July 7th is the beginning of the month of the Yin Fire Sheep (Yin Earth with a little Yin Wood and Fire). June was a fiery month and we have seen literal fires burning all over this beautiful planet in peril. We have also seen fiery rage and reaction to the events happening in our country and world. Now the Sheep traditionally is the peacemaker of the Chinese Zodiac. These are the most relaxed, chilled out people. The Sheep vibe is someone playing guitar around a bon fire on the beach and everyone singing along. Now you put a Tiger (our annual Zodiac animal) and the Sheep together you won’t get much respect, agreement, or rapport but there is a very spicy sexy energy for sure this month. How this translates into our world, politics, and such is a continuation of clashes of ideologies, heated passionate protests, and polarity. So you can give peace a chance or you can join the warriors in the streets, your choice. What do you want to see and experience is how you live your life. You want respect? Be respectful to ALL people. You want agreement and harmony? Be agreeable and harmonious in ALL circumstances. Where are you directing your passions? Since May we have been in a very hot, dry time and this continues through July. If your chart is already hot and dry, this is not welcome. Balance is always key. Do you know your own Bazi Chinese Astrology? If you are curious, ask Lydia Nitya to write up your chart. Just remember that next month of August will bring the Monkey and this may well be a very volatile, potentially violent month. So, be mindful of where you direct your passions this month and what flame you are fanning.

DEPRESSThe 5 Star is in the Center for 2022 and July brings the 6 Star. The Earthy Center is essentially considered a trapped Star placement but with many homes now with open concept designs, it is even harder to contain and work with the energies when they become a giant soup. It is imperative that NO NOISE disrupt this volatile energy. All of 2022 it is like a bomb waiting to detonate in the Center of every home, building, office, store, etc. If this is a bathroom, a closet, or storage room then you are luckier than someone who has a furnace, water heater, or important room here in the Center. Every imaginable upset is more likely to erupt when and if this area is disturbed. Bankruptcy, illness, losses, deaths, etc. It is the worst of the worst. The 6 Star as Metal star is nourished by the Earth and here we find greater opportunity for success but this is lost to the volatility and malevolence of the 5 Star. CURE: AVOID RED, FIRE, Hot Colors, Wood, BLUES, Water, GREEN colors, and plants, ALL Earth tones like tan, brown, yellow, peach, rust, china, crystals, rocks, etc. Focus entirely on draining the energies with METAL like a round Metal bowl, a chiming clock, Metal objects, the colors of black, white, gray, silver, gold, copper, etc. The MOST IMPORTANT cure is to hang a string of 6 Chinese Coins horizontally in the Center of your home or office. And with that a Salt Water Cure (email for instructions) tucked out of view. Remove ALL photos of family and friends. Hang a prayer of protection, black and white photos of mountains, or a spiritual/ religious image/ message.

Activate – The 8 Star of wealth, success and abundance in the North East in July is joined with the 9 Fire Star. This is one of the BEST configurations for future dreams coming true, of joyous celebrations and great good fortune. CURE: If this is your main entrance, hang 8 Chinese Coins on the front door. DO NOT DISTURB with Loud Noises or Banging or Renovation. Use this room quietly. The Grand Duke is in the NE for 2022 so place a pair of Pi Yao Beasties facing into the direction of 52.5 – 67.5 degrees according to your compass. For July bring back FIRE with 8 red silk flowers and Red décor like pillows, throw rug, wreath on a door, etc. For protection from the Tai Sui or Grand Duke prominently display a He E Tai Sui gold plated plaque to avoid divorce, lawsuits, and other misfortunes. Do activate this area of our home/office or property with light and sound and human activity.

NeutralizeThe 3 Star is in the East for 2022 and this month the 4 Wood Star flies in. The 3 Star cautions to disharmony, fighting, and legal action while the 4 Star brings harmony, creativity, fertility, and romance. They are both Wood Stars in a Wood direction. CURE: To energize the 4 Star with blue and turquoise also fuels the negativity of the 3 Star so best to return to the innate 2022 cure of Fire to drain. Prominently display a Red Happy Hotei statue and accent pieces of red like pillows or art.

Depress The 4 Star is in the South East brings a super energized Peach Blossom of Romance. The 5 Star flies in for the month of July . The 4 Star is the BEST place for studies, for romance, for making babies, for creativity, and for travel. The 5 Star is Earth and is controlled by this big Woody energy. Put your focus on boosting Wood to further weaken the 5 but also take into account that this room now is in a danger zone and needs to be kept dark and quiet. CURE: Focus on all the shades of green with healthy house plants and wood furnishings. Place 4 stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a Blue vase in a prominent place. HIDE your Love Altar with 2 Red Candles, 2 ducks, 2 crystal hearts, favorite photos and mementos and protect your relationship! On a high shelf place a Kwan Yin statue. If this is a front door try to use an alternative entrance. DO NOT DISTURB THE CHI IN JULY.

ActivateThe 9 Star is at home in the South and this month the 1 Star flies in. Sizzling in the South in July. Wow, what an energy and this requires mitigation as we have Fire and Water. The mitigating element is Wood. The 1 Star is prospering and success along with the future wealth star 9. CURE: Annual cure is to place a Vision Board of all you hope to accomplish, manifest, create in 2022 prominently placed. If this is a front door or primary room, hang a string of 8 or 9 Chinese Coins from the doorknob. In a green vase place 9 Purple Silk flowers. Add GREEN to this room is some way and this could be a large green blanket thrown over the couch or bed, or a large lush plant.

DEPRESSThe 2 Sickness Star is in the South West with the Monthly 3 Wood Star. The 2 Star forebodes sickness, disease, digestive issues, and overall misfortune. The Sui Po or Year Breaker in the SW asks that you KEEP THIS ROOM DARK AND QUIET with NO renovations, banging, digging, or disruptions. The 3 Star pisses on the grave as in this is just a surly disharmony with a middle finger to the world. It’s getting ugly in the South West. This part of our world is most of South America and the North Eastern part of the USA. CURE: The annual cure is a round Metal bowl and other Metal objects and furnishings. Focus on draining colors of white, gray, and black. If this is a front door and you cannot use another door, hang a Ba-Gua mirror on the outside of the door facing into the street, flank the front steps with Gold Fu Dogs for protection. Enter through this door as quietly as possible. If this is a bedroom and you cannot sleep anywhere else, put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and put a Wu Lou Health Gourd by your bedside for protection. NO FIRE, NO Earthy materials or colors like red, orange, yellow, brown, hot pink, no green or blues. Metal, white, gray, and black is your only element to work with.

DEPRESSThe 7 Star is in the West where the 8 Earth Star is visiting. Be aware that violence, sickness, surgery, and misfortune are rampant now in the West with the 7 Star. Great caution should be used to AVOID this area and keep it dark and quiet. The 8 Star adds great good fortune but perhaps at a cost. CURE: NO windchimes, NO FIRE like fireplace, grill, fire pit or stove. Cover your stovetop with cookie sheets when not in use if this is your Kitchen. Hang a Ba-Gua on the front door if this is your main entrance and unavoidable. Best colors are all shades of BLUE, black, white, and gray. Check smoke detectors and security. Best cure is a crystal bowl filled with rice that has 2 Chinese Coins on top. Be very careful with anything flammable in the this sector of your home, office or property.

DEPRESSThe 6 Star is in the North West with the visiting 7 Metal Star. The 6 Star brings great good fortune and success in 2022. This is a great area for an office or front door. The 7 Star is Metal in a Metal direction as well but this is a dark, violent, injurious chi. CURE:  If a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets. NO FIRE in this Metal direction, colors red, hot pink, orange, and also no Blues or Greens. Metal furnishings or painted black or white, Metal accessories and décor. A Brass Coiled Dragon with a Gold Ingot on a Blue piece of fabric or a Blue plate is the best cure for 2022. IF A BEDROOM do not use Earth tones but rather BLUE to protect your liver and legs. Never have actual Water or images of Water in a bedroom. If a front door hang 6 Chinese Coins from the front door. NO Earth tones for July but rather make this far more of a Zen feels with black, white, gray, and navy blue.

DEPRESSThe 1 Star in the North with the 2 Star visiting. DO NOT DISTURB THIS AREA OF YOUR HOME OR GARDEN WITH ANY BIG DISTURBANCES as the Three Killings is in the North for 2022. Its is an abundant room for good fortune and money to flow in BUT you have to heed the call to keep it quiet. The 2 Star this month is weakened greatly by the Water and cautions against health issues and misfortune. CURE: DO NOT put your back to the North but rather face the North for all of 2022. Be aware of how you drive toward and away from your home, and the direction you begin any commute or travel. If a bedroom, hang a Wu Lou health gourd to protect health. A Silver Elephant placed in a prominent location encourages positive romantic encounters, place a healthy plant with this. A single gold ingot on a gold or blue plate is to encourage abundance. If a bedroom place a Wu Lou health gourd to protect your health and safety. If a front door, use another entrance.
