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 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. 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.

May 5th is a shift into a Yin Wood Snake. The Snake is Yang Fire with a little Metal and a little Earth tucked inside. This is one of the months I warned us all about earlier this year. It is a real RED FLAG for anyone born on the day of the Tiger or Monkey and, less impactful, in the year of the Monkey or Tiger. For those born on the Day of the Tiger or Monkey who have these 3 Zodiac Animals in their chart, the Snake, Monkey and Tiger form a Full Punishment. This is sudden loss of income, money, accidents and mishaps, and lawsuits or being sued or served papers. The Snake month of May is going to really amp up this Tiger year’s volatility. The Snake is at its worst is calculating, vengeful, jealous, possessive, and paranoid. The best traits of the Snake is that they can bring accord and conflict resolutions. The Snake is our soothsayer, our psychic, and intuitively operates behind the scenes. The PIG is the talisman of protection for Tigers, Monkeys and Snakes in 2022. Keep one close by when traveling and certainly by your bedside. Political figures and Countries of our World with this configuration in their charts could face great challenges in the weeks ahead.

DEPRESS and EncourageThe 5 Star is in the Center for 2022 and May brings the 8 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 8 Star is the most auspicious Earth Star and offers all of us a little respite from the evils of the 5 Star. As we continue to be cautious in this location, we can also anticipate that calmer waters, or in this case, shifting sands are going to be a bit gentler in May. 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. For May hang a string of 8 Chinese coins in the Center of the house or office (use an adhesive not hammering a nail in the wall).

NEUTRALIZE – 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 May we are extra cautioned to pause and be a little more mindful. The Earthy 2 Star is very motivated here in this Earthy direction. Unfortunately now is NOT the time to fuel these energies with Fire but rather to drain with Metal. This will protect you from the potential for serious illness or misfortune plaguing you in the weeks ahead. 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 May use METAL, white, gray, and black. REMOVE any FIRE objects or colors. No 8 red silk flowers for May – tuck in a closet for later. 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. This month we don’t want to activate this area of our home/office or property with light or sound or human activity. This area is on pause for the month of May.

NeutralizeThe 3 Star is in the East for 2022 and this month the 6 Metal Star flies in. The Metal clashes with the Wood of the East and weakens it further. Both the 3 and the 6 are not vibrant. Even as the 6 Star typically foretells wealth and positivity, the 3 Star cautions to disharmony, fighting, and legal action. CURE: Change things up – Blue is the color that mitigates the Clash of energies so throw some turquoise, or teal, or bright blue in this room for May BUT keep the Red Happy Hotei statue as a continuing cure for the 3 Star. 

NeutralizeThe 4 Star is in the South East brings a super energized Peach Blossom of Romance. The 7 Star flies in for the month of May The 4 Star is the BEST place for studies, for romance, for making babies, for creativity, and for travel. The 7 Star is Metal, and Clashes with the Woody nature of the SE. There is threat to safety, legal matters, gossip, infidelity, and back stabbing. Great caution to your romantic relationship, also caution to academics and the threat of cheating or issues around intellectual property. CURE: Focus on all the shades of green with accents of BLUE for the month of May. Blue like Water is mitigating the Clash and bridging some salve on an otherwise contentious part of this month’s Ba-Gua. 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 you are in a relationship that is on the rocks, unstable and or non-existent remove your Love Altar for May. Be cautious and protective of this sector of your home. 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 May, a Blue Rhino prominently placed is recommended.

ENHANCEThe 9 Star is at home in the South and this month the 3 Star flies in -The 3 Star brings the potential for drama and fighting, misunderstandings and in this Southern location, defamation, slander, and injurious gossip. 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 May the best cure is the color RED and PURPLE to further weaken the already weak 3 Star. This Star is limping through May, so likely will have little impact.

DEPRESSThe 2 Sickness Star is in the South West with the Monthly 5 Earth 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 5 Star is pure evil let loose and together, these 2 Earth Stars in the Earthy SW can wreak absolute havoc on our lives. Take extra care to use another bedroom or entrance. AVOID this area of your home/office and property and exercise extreme caution. 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.

NeutralizeThe 7 Star is in the West where the 1 Water Star is visiting. The 1 Star is nurtured by the West and is a draining influence for the negative 7 Star so this room isn’t as bad. 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. 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. The 1 Star loves the color BLUE so toss some accents like pillows or towels or a throw blanket.

ENHANCEThe 6 Star is in the North West with the visiting 9 Fire Star. The 6 Star brings great good fortune and success in 2022. This is a great area for an office or front door. The 9 Star is in Conflict here as it is Fire in a Metal direction. EARTH is needed to mitigate and this will in turn nourish the 6 Star, This area will see dreams manifesting, projects getting launched, and this room is the place for planning, developing, and launching. Great success now and in the future are promised for work done in the NW. 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. Earth tones like yellow, brown, tan, chamois, peach, rust, and terracotta are all welcome.

ENHANCEThe 1 Star in the North with the 4 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 4 Star rushes in like a lover holding a bouquet of roses. Swoon! A beautiful month for artistic projects being successful and well received. A great room for success in romance, baby making, and scholarly achievements. 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 4 Star bring in healthy lush plants and the colors Green and Blue.
