Check out the Nitya Living YouTube Channel for Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology videos. I have been posting Feng Shui stories from my clients, and the charts of celebrities to better understand our own charts. Here is one just aired on the incredible life of Tina Turner. Another about Jamie Foxx as we explore his health concerns.
We entered May, a transformative Snake month in eclipse season. How have you slithered out of skins of identities, roles, experiences this past month? There has been so much Fire surging int our charts. How has they felt for you? My chart is so strong in Fire that I have found it to be overwhelming, a general state of anxiety as if all that is changing is happening in a way that feels at times out of control and too fast. Yet, all this is needed. We are forced at times to change because we are being pushed into new spaces, into new identities, into an ever evolving human experience.
June will gallop in on the hooves of a Yang Earth Horse. The Horse is represented by the elements of Yin Fire and a little Yin Earth. So this feels like a warm day at the beach. This is dry and warm like summer days can be. Does this signal less rain? Possibly? Is this forecasting warmer temps? I’m imagining so. What does our Queen Rabbit have to say about the Horse? Well, Rabbit is slow, steady, and passive and she is irritated by the fast, spontaneity of the Horse. The irritation in the air is palpable. It’s like flies at a picnic. It’s like that feeling inside you when you are ready to make a move, hit the Go button, launch something new and the forces say slow down, not yet, let’s re-think this. It signals frustrating delays, and a stop start kind of whiplash. Pay attention to the vibe and how these coming weeks progress.
The Flying Stars show each of the Stars in their homes which will make them extra activated. Let’s see how best to dance with this!

DEPRESS– The 7 Star is in the North East for 2023 is Doubled in June. The 7 Star threatens to our physical and financial security. Be mindful of what is happening here and do not use this for an office. The risk of a lawsuit, bankruptcy, a fight that turns violent or surgery/ injury with a sharp object are all more likely now. Therefore, this is NOT a place to have a desk, a safe, a check book, or anything financial. Protect your money. Best Colors/ Decor: Metal furnishings, all shades of Blue, and White. Bring this into your décor with rugs, pillows, and art that is tranquil like open sky with blue birds, clouds, blue flowers.

CURES: A black dish with rice and a single Chinese Coin with a blood stone atop the coin to absorb negativity and protect finances. Another protection for wealth is displaying a Blue Elephant or Rhino Statue.
DEPRESS – The 2 Star is in the East is one of the most problematic rooms/areas for 2023. The 2 Star suggests illness, and grave misfortune especially to those people born in the year or on the day of a Rabbit, Rooster, or Rat. KEEP THIS ROOM DARK AND QUIET AND UNDISTURBED. The Grand Duke sits in the degrees 82.5-97.5 SE. No construction, loud noise deep digging, or loud noises in this room throughout the year. Best Colors: Wood and all shades of green, landscapes, floral designs, leaf patterns, and trees. Have a few healthy plants here too. Avoid: All other colors, especially Earth tones like yellow, brown, tan, peach, pale pink, and also Fire like red, violet, hot pink, and orange. No Metal like white, gray, or black, and Water with colors of Blue. CURE: For a front door facing SE that you cannot use another entrance, hang a Ba-Gua mirror to deflect the negative chi and 2 Metal Fu Dogs flanking the entrance. For a bedroom that cannot be changed, hang a Healing Herbs Wu Lou and put a Salt Water Cure under the bed. For appeasing the Grand Duke display a Gold Tai Sui Plaque and a pair of Pi Yao Beasties facing into the afflicted direction. DO NOT FACE THE EAST in the way your head is pointed in bed, in the way you sit and even in the direction you drive from your home. Remove all Family photos.
Neutralize – The 3 Star is in the South East is truly a bitchy vibe. This is hi-lighting relationships and could bring up some arguments, disharmony or irritation. Best Colors: Stick with the innate color of this direction, Green in all shades along with landscapes, floral or leaf designs, prints, art. Healthy lush plants. Add pops of RED to drain the Wood and give it somewhere to focus its energy besides your relationships. Avoid : Water with Blues, Earth tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Orange, Violet, and of course Metal with colors of white, gray, and black. Keep this room quiet and serene.
Activate– The 8 Star is in the South and this is the home of the Horse, our monthly Animal. This is the BEST sector/room for the month of June. Celebrate and feel the abundance dancing here! The potential is for great wealth and good fortune. The 8 Star is nourished by the Fire of the South. If you have a North South facing house, in which your home faces North or South then you will greatly benefit from the incredibly wealth flowing. You must have an open flow of chi running North to South with no obstructions. Best Colors: Earth tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, and also Fire as in Red, Violet, Hot Pink, and Orange. Great place for an outdoor grill or fire pit. Avoid: Blue, Water, Green, Wood, and Metal with colors of Black, White, and Gray.

Other options are 8 citrine or red crystal balls in a ceramic square tray/bowl or 8 silk RED Flowers, or a Wealth Cabbage called a Bai Chok or a Red Phoenix statue or image.
Acitvate – The 1 Star is in the South West is a wealth Star and is in conflict as a Water Star in this Earth direction. To mitigate we want to add Metal which offers a pathway between Water and Earth. Best Colors: Metal and colors of White, Gray and Black with a little Blue thrown in. Worst Colors: Earth like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peace, Fire and Fire colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange and Violet, Blue as in Water, and Wood as well as Green colors.

Place a single Gold Ingot on something Blue for wealth and if this is your office, place a Red Ru Yi Sword to strengthen your career.
Activate– The 6 Star is in the West bringing the potential for success and wealth. This is a great room for an office or conference room. This is an afflicted area for 2023 as the West sits opposite to our Annual Rabbit in the East. Do not face East, but it is okay to face West. Best Colors: Metal and the colors of White, Gray, and Black. You can also add some BLUE. Avoid: (depending, you can use Earth tones but if this room also shares the SW in your Ba-Gua layout, than omit use of Earth like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, crystals, pottery), Wood, colors of Green, Water, Fire and Fire colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange and Violet. CURE: A Gold Happy Hotei sitting on an Ingot, or 6 Gold Ingots in a Metal round dish, and to appease the Sui Po and Three Killings, point a Silver Elephant in the direction of 232.5-307.5 W. A special cure of the 3 Celestial Mirror ensures you get the optimal benefit from this area.
Depress–The 5 Star is in the North West is one of the most afflicted directions for 2023. AVOID this area at all cost and especially as a bedroom or main entrance. Move if at all possible to another bedroom or entrance. Anything and everything that can go wrong will if this is disturbed. KEEP THIS AREA/ROOM QUIET, DARK, AND UNDISTURBED BY LOUD RENOVATIONS OR NOISE. Best Colors: Metal with Blue, White, Gray, and Black. AVOID: Earth and colors of Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, Water and shades of Blue and Green, no Wood, and NO FIRE of any kind not even candles, colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange, and Violet. If a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. CURE: If a front door hang a Ba-Gua mirror to deflect the negative chi and flank the entrance with a pair of Metal Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and a Wu Lou Health gourd by the bedside. Be really careful with everything you do here. Metal is the best Cure as in a round Metal bowl or something that chimes like a clock.
BEST DIRECTIONS FOR June are the Center, North, South West, West, and South
Areas of Caution: North West, South East, East, and North East
For Our World: The Horse rules the SOUTH, and the international focus turns to Spain, France, Great Britain, much of Europe, and Western Africa.

Flying Stars is an advanced system of Feng Shui that has been used since the times of Ancient China. 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 or home’s birth day. 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
