The Flying Stars for 2024 are now sitting in their new Period 9 idenitities. Notice how some of the Stars are the same or worse and others have new roles entirely. To update your home to Period 9 requires an expert Feng Shui consultant like Lydia Nitya Griffith to review the new Lo Pan for your Floor Plan/ Ba-Gua to see if the Mountain and Water Stars are more favorable. To update to Period 9 choose the warmest day in January to open your home (doors and windows) for 24 hours, or replace your roof, or embark on a notable renovation, or vacate your home with no one living there for 30-60 days.

CURES FOR THE 3 AFFLICTIONS:

Grand Duke is in the South East 105-135 degrees on the compass.

Keep this area of your home and property quiet with no deep digging, banging, construction, or renovation. If you have to have a disturbance happen, say a blessing and put up a 6 rod Metal wind chime to deflect the negative influences. I also like to put an angel or symbol of protection in the afflicted area. Close doors calmly and do not slam.

DO NOT FACE SOUTH EAST

Cure: Gold Tai Sui Plaque/ Pi Yao Beasties facing into the afflicted direction, and if you have an office here, place 3 Immortals behind you. Pi Yao facing into the South East brings financial protection

If a main entrance, Fu Dogs should be placed on either side of the steps.

Fu Dogs protect the family and brings harmony.

If this is a bedroom or a room you use a lot in your day, place a salt water cure and Brass Wu Lou with a black ribbon to absorb any negative chi.

Sui Po in the North West 285-315 degrees

Directly opposite the Grand Duke is the Year Breaker or Sui Po.

The Three afflictions are financial, career, and health. When disturbed any of these can be immediately impacted.

Keep this area of your home and property quiet with no deep digging, banging, construction, or renovation. If you have to have a disturbance happen, say a blessing and put up a 6 rod Metal wind chime to deflect the negative influences. I also like to put an angel or symbol of protection in the afflicted area. Close doors calmly and do not slam.

Home facing North West or South East will be the most impacted and the risk is greater for Dragons and Dogs.

FACE THE NORTH WEST

CURE: Place a Brass or Golden Dragon in a prominent area of this room to appease the Sui Po or a 3 Celestial Beasts Mirror.

Three Killings is in the South degrees 135-225

Keep this area of your home and property quiet with no deep digging, banging, construction, or renovation. If you have to have a disturbance happen, say a blessing and put up a 6 rod Metal wind chime to deflect the negative influences. I also like to put an angel or symbol of protection in the afflicted area. Close doors calmly and do not slam. The Zodiac signs most impacted by instability are Sheep, Horse, and Snake.  

Cure: Dragon Headed Turtle and a Water Plant (plant cuttings growing in clear glass vases – ensure water is fresh and clean)

#1 Star of Wealth is in the East – The East influences those born on the day or in the year of the Rabbit.

In Period 9 the 1 Star is now our Future Wealth Star (Period 1 will arrive in 2044 and usher in a new 180 year cycle for humans on Earth and you can expect or imagine how different our world will be by then).

The 1 Water Star is in a nourishing relationship with the Woody East and after an embattled time in 2023, we will all be happy to have our family/ health corner restored to abundance like a fruit tree full of ripening fruit. BUT the Wood being the child of Water weakens the 1 Star and so it needs to be nurtured so it can bring wealth. The eldest male in the house can very much benefit from this for career growth.

Best Colors:  All shades of Blue, Black, and a little Metal

Avoid:   Green, Wood, Metal, gold, silver, Black, White, Gray, WATER and Earthy Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, Fire, RED, violet, fuchsia, orange, and bright colors, no crystals

Design: Silver frames, blue flowers or birds, a couple healthy lush plants in Blue pots

Cure:

  • This is the NEW Star for placing a Vision Board that imagines all you want to manifest in 2024. What you focus on expands!
  • A motivator for wealth is a single Gold Ingot on something Blue with a healthy plant in a prominent location
  • A Metal singing bowl, dog or cat bowl are another welcome cure to support the efficacy of the 1 Star

#2 Yellow Star is in the South East – The South East influences those born on the day or in the year of the Dragon. The Place of the Grand Duke in 2024. DO NOT FACE SOUTH EAST.

Period 9 is transforming the Yellow 2 Star from the Sickness Star to a wealth Star but not yet. It cannot change instantly, this Star will need to be carefully managed for a few years until it has truly transformed. A balance of Earth and Metal is required. Sitting in the Woody South East is only making this transition more difficult.

With the Grand Duke here, I would say keep it quiet, undisturbed, and avoid it as a main entrance or bedroom. It’s just too volatile and has too many variables for this to be a safe space for sleeping or entering your home.

To mitigate Earth and Wood we use Fire but that is not an option and the 2 Star needs to be carefully managed this year as it is going through this transformation.

Best Colors:  Earth tones like sage, fern, olive, tan, brown, camouflage print.

Design: A few healthy plants, images of yellow flowers, Wood furnishings, turquoise blue rug, and fabrics

Avoid:  Wood, shades of Blue and Green, Water, FIRE or METAL, and colors of white, black, gray, Yellow, Peach, Rust, , RED, violet, fuchsia, orange, and bright colors

Cures:  

  • Display a Gold Tai Sui Plaque and a pair of Pi Yao Beasties facing into the afflicted direction 105-135 degrees brings financial protection
  • If you have an office here, place 3 Brass Immortals behind you.
  • If a main entrance, Metal Fu Dogs should be placed on either side of the steps to protect the family and maintain harmony.
  • If this is a bedroom or room you use a lot in your day, place a salt water cure and Brass Wu Lou with a black ribbon to absorb any negative chi.
  • 2 Gold Ingots on a square Pottery or Yellow Plate is another option for a cure.

#3 Star in Period 9 is worse than it was in Period 8 with more Violent Arguments and Vicious Disharmony along with Lawsuits. The 3 Stars sits int the Center

I used to describe this chi as a cranky child but now it’s more like a wet cat. This negative Wood Star is at odds with the Earthy Center and this is a good thing. Its influence is not as impactful so it will be easier to control.

Remember the Center chi, especially in open concept homes, permeates the entire home, making it exceptionally important to control this negative influence. When triggered, the 3 Star brings fighting, disharmony, explosive temper, and loss of money as well as legal woes. In the physical body we see ailments related to the feet, liver, lungs, bladder, limbs, and mental health.

Best Colors: RED, violet, fuchsia, bright colors as the FIRE element will drain this negative chi and mitigate the clash with Earth.

AVOID: METAL, WATER and EARTH, and colors white, black, gray, Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, Earth tones, and all shades of Blue.

Remove all clocks, TVs, stereos, musical instruments, wind chimes, etc. from this room.

Design: Red accent pillows, rugs, blanket, etc. , actual Fire as well like incense, fire pit, grill, etc.

Cures:

  • MUST HAVE CURE: Ping’an Ba Gua Protection Talisman
  • A Red Happy Hotei sitting on top of 7 Red Lucky Envelopes put in a prominent place. If there is no where to sit the statue, tape the 7 red envelopes on the back of a prayer, poem or quote that is hung on the wall in a red frame. This should be a message of peace or harmony
  • No family photos in this area.

#4 Star in Period 9 is losing its luster for promoting Creativity, Education and Romance. This Star needs support throughout Period 9 to hold its positivity.

For 2024 North West place of the Sui Po (opposite the Grand Duke home of the Dragon) – This is where the Dog is afflicted and if you are born on the Day or in the Year of the Dog this is not a room to occupy on any regular basis like a home office or bedroom and certainly not the main entrance.

The Wood of the 4 Star is embattled here in the Metal North West and needs to be mitigated with Water colors which innately the element needed which is favorable.

Best Colors: Water and all shades of Blue – not actual water.

Avoid:  Red, Hot Pink, Violet, Fiery colors and prints, Earth as in Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, Wood and shades of Green, , and Metal along with white, gray, and black

Design: Blue rug, artwork and furnishings.

Cure:

  • Chinese Coin with the 4 characters facing up with a Rose quartz crystal on top to appease relationships.
  • No family photos on display. The presence of a love altar would now invite adultery, and divorce.
  • 4 Stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a Blue vase (you can display the Blue Rhino with the bamboo in a prominent location)
  • I would use a BaGua mirror if this is a main entrance – not too much traffic or noise please.

#5 Misfortune Star is in the West – Impacting people born in the year or on the day of the Rooster. Period 9 shows the 5 Star not letting up on being the worst of all the Stars. Foreboding injury, bankruptcy, sickness, and grave misfortune when disturbed, this is no chi to mess with. This Earthy Star in the Metal West is weakened in this placement. It is best then to continue to focus on draining this negative chi with more Metal.

Keep this room dark and quiet with NO NOISE, no renovations or deep digging.

Best Colors: Black, white, gray, silver, gold, and brass with some Blue.

Avoid: NO FIRE, NO WOOD, NO EARTH, NO WATER. Colors of Green, Red, Orange, Hot Pink, Violet, Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust.  

Design:  Metal and Glass furnishings, black and white photography, black and gray are the color for furnishings, rug, bedding, etc.

Cures:

  • If this is a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use.
  • Remove all family photos
  • Ensure this is not your front door or bedroom. If you cannot change this arrangement, put a Brass Wu Lou on the bedside table and a salt water cure under the bed. If a main entrance, hang a deflecting Ba-Gua mirror and Gold Fu Dogs flanking the front steps
  • Hang a 6 rod Metal wind chime outside the Western window.
  • A chiming clock is great in this location.

#6 Star of Success is in the North East – The direction impacting all Ox and Tiger if born on the day of or year. Period 9 weakens the 6 Star and so this embattled chi needs the love of Earth to give it stamina to continue to be the benevolent star of wealth and success we know it to be. Sitting in the Earthy North East in 2024 is a bonus for anyone with an office or main front door in this location.

Best Colors: White, Gray, Black, Metal frames and furnishings. Nourish the 6 Star with Earth tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Dusty Pink, Rust, and Terracotta.

Design: Crystals, pottery, china, and earthenware along with black and white images of mountains, clouds, angels, sky, even a picture of gold.

Avoid: Wood, colors of green, Water, colors of Blue, Fire, and colors like red, hot pink, orange, and violet.

Cures:

  • 6 Gold Ingots or a Gold Buddha sitting on a large Ingot.
  • Hang 6 Chinese coins with Red tassel from door or window to attract wealth

#7 Robbery Star is in the South – People born on the day or in the year of the Horse primarily but also the Snake and Sheep are impacted most by the Star of the Broken Soldier.

In Period 9 this Violent Star will continue to bring negative influences like backstabbing, injury with sharp objects, lawsuits, bankruptcy, slander. Especially in the South, this is corruption, being cancelled, losing face, demotion, being shamed, and outed. The South as a Fire direction is in conflict with the Metal 7 which is looking very explosive like the firing of a gun, a bomb detonating, or a car crash.

CAUTION – Three Killings is in the South just to make this even more contentious! The mitigating element of Earth will only feed the 7 Star so proceed with great caution here.

AVOID AS AN ENTRANCE OR MAIN BEDROOM

Best colors are Black, White, a touch of BLUE, Metal

Design: Wood furnishings, Metal accessories with Blue accents

Avoid:,  Earth tones like brown, yellow, rust, peach, beige, Wood and the colors of green, actual moving Water, Fire in all of its forms and colors of red, hot pink, orange, and violet.

CURE:

  • A Black dish filled with clean rice and a single Chinese Coin with a blood stone sitting atop the coin to absorb the negativity and protect finances. (note: if concerned about mice, spray the rice with something like window cleaner to make it inedible)
  • Put down a Blue rug and throw Blue pillows on the bed or couch
  • If there is a Kitchen here, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use.
  • Watch for safety and security with any doors or windows

#8 Star of Wealth is in the North – Rat people are impacted by this good fortune.

In Period 9 the 8 Star loses some of its vibrancy but is still a great cultivator of wealth, success, and relationships. This is where you can place a Love Altar. Being weakened by Period 9, the presence of Water does not help this situation and there is no way to mitigate so you must directly work to support the 8 Star with Earth and a little Fire.

Best colors: Brown, Tan, Yellow, and a splash of Red

Design: Brown or Black framed images of wealth, of diplomas and degrees, items involving your career

Avoid:  Fuchsia, Violet, Orange, Pink, Peach,  actual Fire, Wood and colors of Green, Water and colors of Blue, Metal, White, Gray, and Black

Cures:

  • 8 Yellow or Red silk flowers in a Metal/ Brass or Silver vase.
  • The Wealth Cabbage – Bai Chok for wealth OR a Brass Hotei Buddha
  • If looking to generate energy in your romantic life, and especially if this is your bedroom, set up a Love Altar with 2 Red or Yellow candles, 2 rose quartz hearts, favorite pictures, mementos, and treasures from your time together. You can also add a pair of birds, a love poem, and other romantic items.

#9 Star of Wealth is in the South West – Impacting those born on the Day or Year of the Monkey and Sheep. This is THE STAR of Period 9 and it is in its ultimate power. Future wealth star is now our #1 Star for bringing in money. Expect career breakthroughs, pregnancy, love, marriage, promotion, and career success.

Best Colors: Purple, Violet, Eggplant, Earth tones like Yellow, Orange, Brown, Tan, Pink, Peach, and Terracotta. A couple healthy plants.

Design: Wood frames and furnishings, images of happy people, couples, babies, sun, sunflowers, candles, actual fire, and Wood elements and a touch of green like sage, olive, or fern.

Avoid: Water and colors of Blue, Green, Metal and colors of white, gray, and black.

Cures:

  • One very special cure for a Year of the Wood Dragon in the South West sector for the matriarch of the home, also important if this is the sector of your office to display the Baoyou Zusui Master Cure. It is a one time use cure but the investment is worth it for protection and prosperity in 2024. Ensure you place it directly in the SW.
  • Display a Purple or Wooden Vase with 9 silk purple flowers.
