The first month of our New Year of the Jade Dragon came in fast, hard, and loud! Wow, did you get whiplash from all that energy? There may have been some arguments, competitive face offs, and dynamic forward moving momentum on your projects. That was a wild ride to start the year and here we land in the soft pillowy grasses of March. Yes, our sweet little Rabbit that just left us not but a hot minute ago peaks her sweet Springtime head into our gardens and says, let’s all take a rest. Really?! Welcome to a Yin Fire Rabbit March 2o24. Oh, but just a little problem, the Dragon is not one to slow down, in fact, the Dragon is our 4 year old charging with stick in hand into the woods of our world screaming as all the birds scatter into the sky. So, no, the flavor of March will feel like that Saturday when you want to do nothing but veg out in the yard staring at all the flowers blooming in your garden and you instead are asked, demanded, and coerced into doing fifty million things all day and into the party of the night. You may find yourself frustrated that you can’t keep your own pace. You may feel rushed, overwhelmed, and yes, coerced, into doing more than you ever wanted to because someone signed you up for every committe on the PTA. Kind of like that. Therefore the message for all of us in March 2024 is be flexible, accomodating, find those pockets of quiet and burrow in for as long as you can before the race of the world pulls you back into the fast lane.

NeutralizeThe 3 Star in the Center is visited by the 4 Star. In addition to all the wildness of the Tiger and Dragon combo in February, we also had the 5 Star radiating daggers from the Center into our home all month too. Now we arrive at safer shores with these two Wood Stars. Both the 3 and 4 are weakened by this placement in the Earthy Center. Fire is the mitigator and further weakens these Stars that in Period 9 are not favorable. Best Colors/ Decor: Red, Fuchsia, Violet, Tangerine, Rose, and bright patterns Avoid: Neutral tan, white, cream, Water and Metal, white, gray, black, Earthy yellow, brown, and tan. CURES: Annual cure of a Happy Hotei sitting on 7 Chinese Red envelopes. That cure protects your relationships and wealth.

Activate The 8 Star is in the North for 2024 and in March the 9 Star joins for a SUPER Wealth combination. The 8 Star in Period 9 is no longer the king of wealth and abundance, but in taking a step back there is still plenty of potential for prospering. Unfortunately the 8 Star is Earth in the Watery North and there is no way to mitigate. Add to that the 9 Star is Fire so together they work beautifully but not in this Watery location. I would continue to focus on nourishing these Stars by adding Wood with Fire in March. There is so much wealth potential sitting here in your Career corner. Please make good use of this! Best Colors/ Decor: Wood furnishings, all colors of green, brightly colored flowering plants, add some Fire like red, violet, yellow, peach, rust, burgundy. Avoid: Water and colors of Blue, Metal and colors of black, white, and gray, and too much Earth. CURES: Place 8 Silk Yellow Flowers in a RED Vase for abundance. If this is a front entrance, hang 8 Chinese coins on red string from the door knob. Set up a Love Altar wih a pair of birds, 2 rose quartz crystals, and a favorite picture or two of you and your sweetie. For March add something Purple like an amethyst.

DepressThe 6 Star is in the North East for 2024 and in Period 9, the 6 Star continues to be a Star of wealth and success. In March the NE is visited by the 7 Star which is a cautionary situation. Now we have both Metal Stars together, like the 2 Wood Stars in the Center. These Metal Stars are like a duel of knives, an intrusion of competition, aggression, threat to money, to your reputation, to your safety. Danger. Be very careful if this is an office as people may turn their backs on you or worse, stab you in the back. Also watch out for surgery or injury with sharp objects. Best Colors/ Decor: Metal furnishings, Black, white, gray with BLUE. Bring this into your décor with rugs, pillows, and art. Images of Mountains, religious figures, and people who inspire you. Avoid: For MARCH crystals, pottery, and other Earthy materials, brown, yellow, cream, and other Earth tones, Green, Wood, Red, Fuchsia, Violet, Tangerine, Rose, Red. No personal or family photos. CURES: Place 6 Gold ingots in a round yellow or gold/metal plate in a prominent place. If this is an entrance, hang a string of 6 Chinese coins on Black string from the door knob. For March be very mindful of your finances.

NeutralizeThe 1 Star is in the East and is our new Future Wealth Star in Period 9. This is where we imagine all that we want to manifest in 2024. The 2 Star is a continued caution to hold off on making any plans or implementing anything in March as the 2 Star brings an odd mix of Earth with Wood, of a negative Star in the process of transitioning to becoming more positive. So, this sensitive 2 Star is really lost here. Best is to focus on the 1 Star while continuing to focus more on planning than on implementing. Best Colors: Wood and all shades of green, blue, landscapes, blue floral designs, leaf patterns, plants and trees. Add something Blue like a throw blanket or pillows. 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. CURE:  Bring back your Family photos and display them here. Display yoru Vision Board of everything you want to create and manifest in 2024. Add a round Metal bowl and next to that put a single Gold Ingot on a blue round plate or piece of fabric. With the 2 Star here, caution to see how your health is, and if this is a bedroom, maybe use a Wu Lou Health Gourd to ensure you stay healthy.

DEPRESSThe 2 Star is in the South East where the Dragon holds reign for 2024. The 2 Star in Period 9 is going through the BIGGEST transformation of all the 9 Stars. The 2 Star is no longer the Sickness Star but is becoming a positive chi. BUT we DO NOT want to feed this with Fire, nor put it to work with Metal, but rather focus on nourishing it with its own Earthy element. Sitting in the Woodsy SE offers no solutions, just like the beleagured 8 Star in the North. The 3 Star lands in this sector for March and this feels really wonky. Like if anything could slide sideways, it’s going to be in the South East. Be super mindful to keep this area undisturbed. PLUS this is the home of the GRAND DUKE, one of the 3 Afflictions. 2024 requires we keep this part of our home and property QUIET, NO CONSTRUCTION, LOUD NOISES (video games, loud TV, drumming, etc.). Best Colors: Stick with the innate color of this direction, Green with landscapes, floral or leaf designs, prints, art. Healthy lush plants. Then throw in some Yellow accents in pillows, art, rugs, or linens/towels. Not a lot, just a touch will do. Avoid : RED or Fiery colors and Fire itself as in a fire pit or grill, stove, and fireplace. Water with Blues, and of course Metal with colors of white, gray, and black. Keep this room quiet and serene. CURE: To appease the Grand Duke display a Tai Sui plaque and a pair of Pi Yao beasties facing into 105-135 degrees on the compass. You can also display a Gold Dragon to honor our Dragon Year. If this is an office, put 3 Brass Immortals at your back. If this is a main entrance, place a pair of Gold Fu Dogs flanking the front steps/ entranceway. If this is a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. If this is a bedroom, put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and put a Brass Wu Lou Health Gourd on your bedside table. VACATE THIS AS A BEDROOM AND AVOID AS AN ENTRANCE if at all possible. DO NOT FACE South East, Do NOT TRAVEL or point your head when sleeping in the direction of the SE.

DEPRESSThe 7 Star is in the South is one of the WORST directions for 2024. If this is a bedroom or main entrance try to use another room for sleeping and entering your home. There is a real risk to safety and finances as well as your reputation. The combination of Fire from the South with the Metal of the 7 Star suggests violence, explosions, car accidents, gun shots or war. Add to all of this that the South is where we have one of the 3 Afflictions, the Three Killings. CHECK DOORS AND SECURITY – DO NOT store guns, knives, or any other weapons, even something like a chainsaw in the South. Much like the North and South East, the mitigating element does not work here. March brings in the 8 Star which is at home in the South and nourished by the Fire. This feels like a tempering of the battle of the Metal 7 with the Fiery South, eventhough the Earth nourishes the 7 Star’s Metal, possibly strengthening it. So we are not doing anything differently for March, stay the course. Best Colors: Black, white, gray, and even a splash of Blue Avoid: Earth tones like Brown, Tan, and Cream with live healthy plants. Fire as in Red, Violet, Hot Pink, and Orange, Water, Green, and Wood. CURE: Black, Gray or white for rug, linens, artwork, etc. Fill a black dish with rice and set a Chinese Coin with a bloodstone crystal on top to protect finances. If this is Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. Three Killings Cure is a Brass Dragon Headed Turtle (never have this facing you) with a plant growing in clean, clear water.

Activate- The 9 Star is in the South West is our NEW wealth Star ruled by Fire and March increases our wealth potential with the 1 Water Star. The 1 with the 9 is a spicy, steamy brew of potential wealth and success and promotion. This is a tricky combination to mitigate or find balance with so just focus on the innate qualities for 2024 and add that acupuncture point of Blue to motivate the 1 Star. Best Colors: Purple, violet, lavender, tan, brown, and cream. Worst Colors: All shades of BLUE, Earth like Yellow, Fire, Red, Hot Pink, Orange, Metal, White, black, gray, Water, Wood, and Green colors. CURE: Display prominently 9 purple silk flowers in a purple or green vase. You can also find on the Feng Shui Mall website a special Baoyou Zusui Master Cure specific for the 9 Star in 2024. Place a BLUE item to honor the 1 Star or a Gold Ingot sitting on a Blue round plate.

DEPRESSThe 5 Star is in the West is one of the worst directions for 2024. For March the 6 Star flying in which is challenged by the 5 Star, Be really careful of this area of your home and property. Look out for safety and security. There is potential for loss of wealth with the 6 Star here. KEEP THIS AREA QUIET WITH NO CONSTRUCTION OR LOUD BANGING NOISES. Also keep this room dark and used minimally. Best Colors: Metal and the colors of White, Gray, and Black. Keep the design very Zen. Add pops of Blue. Avoid: Bring in EARTH tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, crystals, and pottery. Wood, colors of Green, Water, Fire and Fire colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange and Violet. CURE: If this is a main entrance, place a pair of Gold Fu Dogs flanking the front steps/ entranceway. If this is Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. If this is a bedroom, put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and put a Brass Wu Lou Health Gourd on your bedside table. VACATE THIS AS A BEDROOM AND AVOID AS AN ENTRANCE if at all possible. Best cure is a 6 rod Metal windchime outside or a chiming clock inside.

DEPRESSThe 4 Star is in the North West is another conflicted area as the 4 Star is no longer our creative, genius, lover Star. In fact, the 4 Star is so embattled inthe Metal NW, the best thing to do is add Blue which will motivate the chi to be more agreeable. Oh, no! The 5 Star is sitting next to the West with the annual 5 Star makes for a wretched combination for the West and North West parts of your home. AND this is the direction of the Dog, so the NW is the other of the 3 Afflictions, the Sui Po which is the enemy of the Dragon. If you are born in the Day or Year of the Dog or Dragon DO NOT have this as you bedroom, office, or main entrance. Do Not face South East but it is OK to face NW and put your back to the SE. KEEP THIS AREA QUIET AND UNDISTURBED WITH CONSTRUCTION OR LOUD NOISES. Throw in the towel and walk away as there is no good to come from this area in March. Best Colors: Blue, not Water, just lots of yummy shades of Blue. Furnishing can still be Metal but minimize that presence to avoid conflict. AVOID: Metal , White, Gray, and Black, 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. 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. To protect relationships, put a Chinese Coin with the 4 characters facing up with a Rose Quartz crystal on top. 4 stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a Blue vase is another cure option. No family photos.

BEST DIRECTIONS: North, and South West, and possibly the East

Areas of Caution: North West (Sui Po), South (Three Killings), North East, West, Center, and South East (Grand Duke).

On the World Stage the Month of March highlights India, Nepal, and north into Tibet and upwards on the world map. These areas ofthe world may be more in the news.

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 are now in Period 9. 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 with life.
