The Clash of the Dog with our annual Ox played out all kinds of whack-a-mole moments in world events in October. Just a glimpse into what’s been happening: The return of the Taliban has led to the crumbling of Afghanistan, the Covid-19 Pandemic rages on even as vaccinations bring deaths and cases down, Venezuela is another country on the verge of collapse among other countries dealing with economic instability, major Ecuador prison riot, Yemeni Civil War, Mali War, Pakistani earthquake, gold mine in Zimbabwe explodes, migrant crises, protests happening in countries around the world, floods along with rampant fires, typhoons, and more. Our world is at this moment at an apex of tensions and major events that are rapidly reshaping our lives as we have known it. So, as we transition into late autumn and early winter we are visited by the Earth Pig/ Ji Hai starting on the 7th. The annual Ox of 2021 has been steadfast in its slow plodding forward through this year. The work just keeps coming, tirelessly are we demanded to face our days and deliver. So, the Pig gives us a little respite as the holiday season begins. The Pig loves to socialize, have fun, play, and indulge! Pig as an astrology really ramps up style and getting out of those baggy sweat pants and actually putting on clothes that match and don’t forget the bling. But, given our current climate, it may feel like your putting lipstick on a pig. If nothing else, slow down, rest, and soak a little longer in that lavender Epsom salts bath. Take it easy on the holidays and do what feels safe for you and your family.

Take note that the Monthly Flying Stars are in their innate places this month. This can amplify some great areas to activate and others that need to be avoided.

ENHANCE – The 5 Star is in the Center with the Annual 6 Star. The 5 Star crashes the party in the Center and asks for dark, calm, quiet in November. CURE: A Gold Buddha sitting on coins with Gold and Metal accents in décor and furnishings. Frames on any pictures are ideally Metal, Black or Gold. If this is a wall with no where to place anything, hang an image of wealth; it can be literally a picture of a pile of money, or a family at a grand feast, etc. AVOID RED, FIRE, Hot Colors, Wood, GREEN colors, and plants. Remember to extend your Ba-Gua into the yard and property.

ENHANCE – 8 Star with the annual 9 Star in the North East is all about future wealth and the successes you’re experiencing now. Money is just flowing in, especially if this is your front door, or office location. A great room for planning, dreaming, managing finances, investing, and starting something new. CURE: Place 9 silk Purple Flowers in an Earthen vase. This is also a place to put a Vision Board of all you dream of creating and manifesting. This can also be a wish list or a letter to the Universe. The color is PURPLE and feed this yummy energy with healthy lush plants, green shades, violet, red, and hot pink. FIRE like a grill or kitchen or fireplace are all complementary. In November add 8 Chinese Coins to swing from a door knob, or window.

Balance – The 3 Star moves into the East with the Annual 4. This is where we can set sail on a great trip, or have our students face this direction or sit in the corner of the room or home to study for optimum success, and this is the place for romance to bloom and get sexy in the bedroom. BUT there is a tapping fo the brakes in November as arguments and upsets are more likely and relationships can get prickly. NOT the location for the Thanksgiving dinner!! CURE: Decorate with floral designs and shades of green with healthy plants. 4 Stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a BLUE Vase along with a Love Altar complete with 2 Birds, 2 Red Candles, 2 Crystal Hearts and pictures of you and your love or, if single, your dream lover. A RED ENVELOPE can distract the 3 Star.

DEFLECT – The 4 Star is in the South East with the Annual 5 Star. Focus on mitigating the negativity and try your best to NOT use this area of your home or yard. Close blinds, windows, doors and keep this room dark and unoccupied. That is your greatest protection. If this is your front door, use another entrance if possible. DO NOT DISTURB INSIDE OR OUT WITH CONSTRUCTION, NOISE, DEEP DIGGING, OR ANY COMMOTION. No other energy can Fly in throughout the year and assuage the horrific potential for negative outcomes in the South East of every home and office in 2021. CURE: If the front door, hang a ba-gua mirror and flank the front steps with gold Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and Wu Lou health gourds on the bedside stands to protect your health. Continue to focus on the innate energy of this direction with Wood furnishings and the colors green, striped or leafy design,, and healthy lush plants. AVOID FIRE and any red, hot pink or orange colors. AVOID THIS AREA OF YOUR HOME, YARD, AND OFFICE AT ALL COST.

ENHANCE – The 9 Star joins the Annual 1 Star in the South and all this Water hitting the Fiery South creates a steamy interchange. MITITGATE this clash of elements with WOOD AND GREEN. The positive outcome of the 1 Star is success of all kinds, another great place for a student to study or to have your office. This is also a combination that forms a Peach Blossom of Romance making this the second sexy area of your home. The 9 Star is at home in the South and adds some fun, play, and the possibility of dreams to come true. CURE: Beautiful lush plants, colors of green, floral designs with little pops of pink, violet, and lavender. AVOID METAL, EARTH, AND WATER as in the colors of Blue and actual water.

DEFLECT – The 2 Star is in the South West with the Annual 3 Star. The 2 Star of Sickness is at home in the South West and has more influence than the 3 Star which is weak right now. DO NOT DISTURB INSIDE OR OUT WITH CONSTRUCTION, NOISE, DEEP DIGGING, OR ANY COMMOTION. CURE: The annual cure is a Red Happy Hotei BUT remove ANY FIRE or RED. AVOID WATER AND COLORS OF BLUE, METAL AND METAL COLORS. Be mindful of sleeping in the SW or using a SW facing front door.

Deflect – The 7 Star is in the West where the Annual 8 Star is visiting. MONEY is flooding in to those who have activated this area of their home or office correctly. BUT in November there is a threat of bankruptcy, theft, a coupe, back stabbing, surgery or injury. Take heed. CURE: 8 Yellow silk flowers along with 8 Chinese coins is the annual cure. Colors of Yellow, Brown, Terracotta, Rust, Burgundy, and Peach are great colors to decorate with. AVOID GREENS, WOOD, WATER, BLUES. For November ADD METAL AND METAL COLORS.

DEFLECT –The 6 Star is in the North West with the Annual 7 Star. Here we find the threat of violence, surgery, back stabbing, bankruptcy, fall from fame, and fire hazard are all more likely. This is the bully on the playground and his dukes are up. Watch your back! CURE:  If a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets. If the front door, hang a ba-gua mirror and flank the front steps with gold Fu Dogs. Add BLUE, Black and White accents in rugs, pillows, towels, bedding, etc. Focus predominantly on Metal and Water colors.

DEFLECT – The 1 Star in the North with the Annual 2 Star. DO NOT DISTURB THIS AREA OF YOUR HOME OR GARDEN WITH ANY BIG DISTURBANCES The 2 Star is sickness, malaise, and grave misfortune. Like the 5 Star, this area should be avoided, kept dark, and quiet. If this is the entrance to a school, the location of an office, or master bedroom be extra cautious of dis-ease flowing in. The 2 Star can be food poisoning, stomach illness, cancer, children who are chronically ill, and depression. The 1 Star has more power than the 2 Star but combined they can lead to kidney illness, sex related issues, and a good Water Star turned bad by the 2. CURE: If this is a main/ front door, hang a ba-gua mirror and flank the front steps with gold Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and Wu Lou health gourds on the bedside stands to protect your health. Metal is the best element to focus on with colors of Gray, Black, and White with a heavy accent of Blue. CLOSE BLINDS, MAKE THIS ROOM DARK AND KEEP QUIET.

BEST LOCATIONS for Thanksgiving feasts and gathering with family are in the South and North East.
