The Flying Stars is an advanced system of Feng Shui that has been 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. 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.

Check out the Nitya Living YouTube Channel for Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology videos. The Bazi Astrology of Queen Elizabeth II as well as this video about Cara Delavigne and again we find the Snake, Tiger, Monkey Punishment increasing the likelihood of accidents, illness, death, and lawsuits that lead to loss of finances. There have been several celebrities who have fallen to this affliction this year and we keep finding more.

October begins on the 8th and we move into a Yang Earth Dog. This is a very dry and warm energy that barks loudly for justice. No doubt, the erratic Tiger will bound in to join forces here but only long enough for the Tiger to eventually lose steam and lose interest. I think there will be a reckoning in the weeks ahead. You may look at your own life to see where some justice, or where protests cry is required to protect those who are vulnerable. Yes, hear the battle cry and find your cause to rally around. For those of you with a Horse in your chart, the Dog and Tiger form a Full Fire Trio adding more dry heat to your chart. Do you know your own Bazi Chinese Astrology? If you are curious, ask Lydia Nitya to write up your chart.

Last month of the Rooster may have brought you some neat projects and collaborations. Did you also find your colors and your voice? Well October is saying take that verve and run into the streets with your battle cry, your peace cry, your plea for justice. There is so much unrest in our world from governments to extreme climates. Where are you finding your voice needs to be heard? What is your cause? Who do you feel you need to protect and in saying that you can also ask yourself if you feel safe? This is the power of the Dog to be our loyal companion and brave protector.

NeutralizeThe 5 Star is in the Center for 2022 is now visited by the 3 Star. The 3 and 5 together make a money making 8 but I still caution us all to keep the Center of our home and office quiet, dark, and calm. If you want to see if there is money to found here in October, then put a gold nugget like a chunk of pyrite here. Keep in mind the 3 Wood Star is very weak in the Earthy Center so that 5 Star has far more power. 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. 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. Cover your stovetop with cookie sheets when not in use if this is your Kitchen. Drain the chi 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. Also, place 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.

Activate – The 8 Star of wealth, success and abundance in the North East now is visited by the 6 Star. What a boon of good fortune is gracing this sector of your home or office. Nurture this energy with lots of activity, light, and Earthy energy. 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. You can also place 8 YELLOW silk flowers and YELLO décor like pillows, throw rug, wreath on a door, etc. for October. 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. Do activate this area of our home/office or property with light and sound and human activity.

ActivateThe 3 Star is in the East for 2022 has the blessing of the 1 Star. The 3 Star cautions you to be aware of the potential for disharmony, fighting, and legal action while the 1 Star brings success. 1 and 3 = 4 which is very harmonious, creative, and suggests success in artistic and educational endeavors. CURE: To weaken the 3 Star we typically use Fire to drain BUT that will cause conflict with the Watery 1 Star so we are going to focus on the East’s innate chi of WOOD for October. Focus on colors of GREEN like turquoise, aqua, cerulean, royal blue, etc. with lush plants.

Neutralize The 4 Star is in the South East brings the loving glow of the Peach Blossom of Romance and Sickness 2 Star wreaks havoc here even if 4 and 2 = $6$. Can you bet on the energies bringing good fortune or poor health and upset? I would throw a bit of caution into this area of your home or office for October by hiding your Love Altar and having no family photos out. CURE: Focus on all the shades of green with healthy house plants and wood furnishings. Place 4 stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a Blue vase in a prominent place. Keep a statue of Kwan Yin on a high shelf for protection. Use this room cautiously but there could still be some benefit to making art and studying in the SE.

DEPRESSThe 9 Star is at home in the South and this month we have the 7 Star. The future wealth star 9 is where you can envision dreams coming true and the 7 Star brings lawsuits, legal action, back stabbing, gossip, and defamation, even as bad as bankruptcy. The 7 Metal Star is weakened by the Fire of the South and in conflict with that element. 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. Add GREEN, Red, and Purple to this room is some way and this could be a blanket thrown over the couch or bed, pillows, or a large lush plant. Green nourishes and supports the Fire, further weakening the 7 Star.

DEPRESSThe 2 Sickness Star is in the South West is visited by the 9 Star. The 2 Star forebodes 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 9 Star as a Fire Star is brought to action in the SW and feeds this chi. Best then to just focus on the annual cures. 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. Cover your stovetop with cookie sheets when not in use if this is your Kitchen. 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.

DEPRESSThe 7 Star is in the West is in a duel with the 5 Star. This is violent energy like a landmine ready to blow. Be aware that arguments that turn violent, sickness, surgery, lawsuits, bankruptcy, and misfortune are more likely. 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. Be very careful with anything flammable in the this sector of your home, office or property.

ACTIVATEThe 6 Star is in the North West brings great good fortune and the 4 Star brings a loving, creative vibeThe 6 Star brings great good fortune and success in 2022. The 4 Star suggests that the successes you have in October be directed towards creative projects and educational activities. CURE:  If a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets. NO FIRE in this Metal direction, colors red, hot pink, orange, and 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. For October add some splashes of Blue to mitigate the clash of the 4 Wood and the Metal of the NW.

ACTIVATEThe 1 Star in the North brings more good fortune from the 8 StarDO 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 8 Star brings success to your door, to your home, to your office. 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. 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. To mitigate the Clash of Water and Earth, add 8 Chinese Coins in a prominent place in a square Metal dish.


North East, North West, North, and to some extent, the East are the best areas.

The West is the worse area followed by the Center, the South West, the South, and somewhat the East too.

On the global map, the Dog sits on parts of Mexico and the Western/ South Western parts of the USA . I would imagine there will be a increased threat of fire, dry wind, and heat in October.
