As we reflect on the first month of the Tiger year, we remember that the Tiger Month gave us a snap shot of all that 2022 is for us individually as well as collectively. I couldn’t believe all that happened just in the first week! Tiger energy is fast and furious, then comes to a stand still. As we ride this rollercoaster we must know our limits and when to jump off the ride to save ourselves or to at least regain some measure of balance, stability, and rest. I suggest making a list of all that happened in your life each week of February. Process those events, situations, and relationships knowing this is the tableau laid upon the entirety of 2022.

Now we enter March with that awareness, that knowing, and can adjust and adapt accordingly. The Flying Stars is an advanced system of Feng Shui used for thousands of years. It recognizes the pattern of energy impressed upon every home and building the year it was built. 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. I have a lot to say about this mighty shift that will impact every home and building in the world. At the least, following the annual and monthly Flying Stars allows you to dance with the ever changing chi. Know best rooms and worst rooms to activate and to depress.

Now is the perfect time for a Feng Shui Consultation, in person or via Zoom, and to have a Chinese Astrology Reading. These tools set you up for a far better year ahead because you will have all the information you need to align with the best of 2022.

Check out the Nitya Living YouTube Channel for Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology videos. Here is an in depth overview from Lydia Nitya Griffith.

Best areas for March beginning on the 6th of the month are South East, North, North East, and possibly East. Worst areas are the Center, South, South West, West, and North West. The best ways to depress negative energies is no human activity, minimal noise, darkness, and quiet. The best ways to activate positive energies is lots of movement and human activity, light, and sound.

DEPRESSThe 5 Star is in the Center for 2022 and March brings the Sickness 1 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 Water 1 Star flows in and is quickly absorbed by the weight of the Earth here. Any good fortune the 1 Star could bring is lost in the negative impact 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.

ENHANCE – The 8 Star of wealth, success and abundance flies into the North East. Lucky to those of us with a facing door in the North East and in March we are graced with the 4 Star known as the Peach Blossom of Romance. The Woody nature of this visiting Star means we need to mitigate the conflict between Earth and Wood with Fire. The combination of 4 and 8 brings success to romances, creative projects take off, and children receive recognition for their good studies. Travel is also more favorable now. 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 March have Fire, Fiery colors of red, hot pink, orange or yellow in this room. In a prominent place put 8 red silk flowers. 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. Enjoy using this room regularly throughout the month.

ENHANCE/ DEPRESSThe 3 Star is in the East for 2022 and this month the 8 Earth Star flies in. The best part of this scenario is that the 8 Star can be enhanced while depressing the argumentative 3 Star creating a more positive scenario for this month. While there is plenty of energy for achieving success in this room, the 3 Star cautions you to not host meetings or other communications. CURE: Fire colors are your friend in the East including a fireplace, fire pit or grill on the deck. Red or purple bed linens, rugs, dish towels, and pillows. Artwork that has bright flowers. Add a few lush green floor/ house plants. The annual cure is a Red Happy Hotei statue and a salt crystal lamp or lamp with a red bulb or shade that is kept on continuously throughout the year (except when Monthly 5, 7, and 2 Stars fly in).

ENHANCEThe 4 Star is in the South East brings a super energized Peach Blossom of Romance. The 9 Star flies in for the month of March. The 4 Star is the BEST place for studies, for romance, for making babies, for creativity, and for travel. The 9 Star is Fiery and gets the 4 Star moving and grooving for planting seeds for the future. This suggests a beautiful month for conceiving a baby, for launching a new project, for planning your summer vacation, for day dreaming, and allowing your creative juices to flow. CURE: Focus on all the shades of green with pops of red, fuchsia, and violet. Healthy house plants and wood furnishings. Metal is the enemy in this room in furnishings, décor, and colors of black, white, and gray. Also no Earth tones like yellow, brown, tan, peach, or chamois. Place 4 stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a Blue vase in a prominent place. If a bedroom, create a Love Altar to either welcome a new love or invigorate an existing relationship. Place a pair of birds with 2 red candles, a favorite picture of the two of you, and mementos from a favorite trip or event. On a high shelf place a Kwan Yin statue. If this is a front door have a flag or banner out front to activate the chi but no windchimes. For March, I would simply shift your intention of how you utilize this room so you can make the best use of the vibrant potential for future dreams coming true.

DEPRESS – The 9 Star is at home in the South and this month the 5 Star flies in -The 5 Star is the worst chi to touch Fire because it ignites the negativity like agitating someone who is pissed off, the potential is explosive. This is a month to quell the potential madness here with a lot more quiet, and a lot more calm, especially if this is a main entrance or bedroom. 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. For March the best cure is to AVOID FIRE, and ignore the room as much as you can and when it is in use, use it quietly.

DEFLECTThe 2 Sickness Star is in the South West with the Monthly 7 Star. The 2 Star generates 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 7 Star warns of injury with sharp objects, surgery, back stabbing, violence, theft, and financial ruin. Lovely. 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. The 7 Star also responds well to these cures.

DEFLECTThe 7 Star is in the West where the 3 Wood Star is visiting. The 3 Star is a Wood energy in direct conflict with the Metal of the West. The threat of injury, of violence like a conversation turning ugly or mental anguish over people vilifying you is all ramped up in March. Try NOT to sleep in this room if at all possible and utilize another doorway or risk welcoming in financial losses, bankruptcy, lawsuits, injury with sharp objects, and surgery. 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. For the 4 Star, the presence of BLUE colors will serve to mitigate the conflict.

DEPRESSThe 6 Star is in the North West with the visiting 2 Earth Star. The 6 Star brings great good fortune and success in 2022. This is a great area for an office or front door. The 2 Star is drained by Metal which helps but doesn’t entirely erase the potential here for illness, upset, and misfortune. CURE:  If a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets. NO FIRE in this Metal direction, colors red, hot pink, orange, and also Blues or Greens. NOT for March (Focus on Earth to nourish this positive chi with yellow, brown, tan, cream) BUT do focus design on the colors of gray, black, and white. 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.

ENHANCEThe 1 Star in the North with the 6 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 6 Star brings another layer of success, progress, and good fortune. A wonderful room for an office, for a conference room, or a main entrance. Enjoy this area throughout March and see what abundance flows in. 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. For the 6 Star you could add a Gold Happy Hotei.
