May was certainly an easier flow of energy and I found too much idle time and not enough work. How was your May? What was the vibe you were experiencing in your day to day? It was a great time to network, to collaborate, to socialize, and flaunt your talents. As I consider the story being told with this Green Dragon 2024, I recognize the relationships of the astrology and how it impacts our human lives. So in all the radiance of feeling that bottled sunshine in the month of the Snake, we now enter into June on the 5th ruled by the Horse.

The Horse is freedom loving, independent, resistant to commitment or being restrained in any way. It is a call to find your adventure and be spontaneous, passionate, impulsive, and all in the best and most fun but healthy ways possible. The Dragon and the Horse are quite a pair as far as the forecast for June goes. This is a month to innovate, to create, to go wild, to set yourself free, to let out your braids, to do something different and maybe even radical like dyeing your hair pink or getting a tattoo. Be bold, be brave, and yes, let that freak flag fly because now is not the time to hold yourself back. Permission granted to take that leap and bravely launch yourself into something fabulous! Heavy Yang Metal sits atop the Yin Fire and Yin Earth of the Horse, this is very much the charge into the battle of life, the tarot card Ace of Swords comes to mind.

The Flying Stars were funky in May, you may have noticed some weird energy and events happening from your own home Feng Shui. Let’s see how June is forecasted to be:

ActivateThe 3 Star in the Center is visited by the 1 Star in June. The 3 Wood Star is weakened by this placement in the Earthy Center and so too is the Watery 1 Star. Together, these two are compatible and so that benefits both of them. The 1 Star could bring a better situation, something that comes out of a conversation or meeting in June could spark future good fortune. Best Colors/ Decor: RED is the color for mitigating the Wood/ Earth Clash with the annual 3 Star in the Center. Also, neutral tan, and cream. Add a green lush plant. Avoid: Violet, yellow, peach, rust, burgundy, Earth tones like brown and tan, also Metal, white, gray, black, Water, colors of Blue. 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 June the 6 Star brings back the supreme wealth potential for this location. The 8 Star is challenged in the Watery North this year and as we have ignored the innate expression of this direction to nourish the 8 Star with Earth, we now have the 6 Star arriving to bring wealth and success. These two Stars, like in the Center, are compatible and support each other. Best Colors/ Decor: Colors of Yellow, peach, rust, burgundy, brown, and tan, also Metal, white, gray, black. Avoid: Green, Water and colors of Blue, Fire like red, violet, pink., and orange. CURES: Place 8 Silk RED Flowers in a RED Vase. If this is a front entrance, hang 8 Chinese coins on red string from the door knob. Activate this room as much as you can to energize the wealth potential.

ActivateThe 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. June brings the Woodsy 4 Star which is really weakened here. The influence is not likely to make much of a difference so continue to focus on the 6 Star but adding that mitigating element of Water in colors of Blue. 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: Earthy brown, yellow, cream, Water, Wood, all colors of Green, Fire, Red, Fuchsia, Violet, Tangerine, Rose, Red. 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.

ACTIVATE The 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. June brings the 8 Star which is weakened here as 8 is Earth and the East is Wood. We’ve been using the colors of blue and green in 2024 but for June, it feels like Metal would be the mitigating element to bring in. Best Colors: Wood and colors of dark blue, but for June we bring in Metal silver, gold, and gray in a pillow, artwork, or throw blanket. 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 Green this month. CURE:  Display family photos and your Vision Board of everything you want to create and manifest in 2024. For June 8 Gold Ingots, or 8 citrine crystal balls, or 8 Chinese Coins.

ActivateThe 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 beleaguered 8 Star in the North. 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.). For the Horsey Month of June we have the powerful 9 wealth Star and this feels very auspicious The Woodsy SE is feeding the 9 Star which in turn feeds the Earthy 2 Star. 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. For June add pops of purple, violet, rose, and watermelon. Avoid : Water with Blue colors. green colors, Earth tones, 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 and the duel of Metal Stars arrives for May with the 5 Star. 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 Earthy 5 Star being fed by this location, we can expect disasters in world affairs, and the risk of great misfortune in our lives when disturbed. The South is where we have one of the 3 Afflictions, the Three Killings as well in 2024. CHECK DOORS AND SECURITY – DO NOT store guns, knives, or any other weapons, or tools like a chainsaw in the South. 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 a 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.

DepressThe 9 Star is in the South West is our NEW wealth Star ruled by Fire and having this visited with the 7 Star brings all the goodness to a screeching halt. Guard your wallet, friends, and watch your back. Safety and health of great concern as well. The Earthy SW feeds the Metal 7 and with the Fiery 9 Star feels explosive and this can suggest violence, accidents, fire, injury, and other misfortune. It’s not all bad, but you will need to protect your safety, money, and position in June. Best Colors: Bring in BLUE for June along with Metal, Gray, Black, White, Cream, Tan, and Brown. Add some healthy lush plants here too. Worst Colors: Fire as in a stove, fire pit, candles, incense, etc. Other fire colors are Cherry, Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Rose, Purple, violet, lavender, celery, fern, and olive, 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. Decorate with purple. For May add a Dragon Headed Turtle (Metal) to a desk or bedside table (not facing you), Wu Lou health gourd and salt water cure if this is a bedroom.

DEPRESSThe 5 Star is in the West is one of the worst directions for 2024. The 3 Star is lost here as a Wood Star and this Earthy 5 Star. Be really careful of this area of your home and property. Look out for safety and security. The 3 and 5 Stars are likely to wreak havoc on relationships and incite fighting and conflict. 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: EARTH tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, 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 in the Metal NW, the best thing to do is add Blue which will motivate the chi to be more agreeable. In June the 2 Star is creating a dangerous situation for health and also for relationships with mother-in-law, or daughter-in-law. Be really mindful of relationships being problematic. Also, 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. Best Colors: Blue colors, no Water, furnishing can still be Metal but minimize to avoid conflict. AVOID: Metal , White, Gray, and Black, Earth and colors of Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, Water and shades of Green, minimal 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, North East, Center, East, and South East.

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

On the World Stage the Month of June draws our attention to Great Britain, Ireland, Wales, much of Western Europe including Spain, Portugal, France, Sweden, Switzerland, and Western African countries.

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
