8th October 2018 – 6th November 2018
The Flying Star chart below shows 9 fields, each containing two numbers. The number on the upper left represents the annual star (red = afflictive, blue = auspicious – these should have been taken care of at the beginning of the year) and the black number in the bottom right represents the current monthly star. These are the numbers (stars) that change every month and create new energy patterns in your home and office.
To apply these monthly stars successfully, you need to map out the compass sectors in your home or office. If you are not yet familiar with the compass orientations of your home, I recommend you take two compass readings: one from your main door, looking out, and another reading from the center of your living room, looking towards your balcony or picture window. These two readings should enable you to determine the compass directions and locations of your home.
Please take particular note of the location of your front door and your master bedroom, as the stars in those sectors will affect you the most.
The SE is the most prosperous sector this year 2018 but its wonderful energy is seriously affected by the No 5 Misfortune Star this month. If you are staying in the SE it would be best to postpone signing any contracts or important business decisions. The Misfortune Star particularly affects the liver this month and could also cause problems with the limbs or tendons. Be careful when playing sports or undertaking other kinds of physical activity, as there is an increased danger you might strain yourself.
Place a 5 Element Pagoda in your SE for protection and if your bedroom is in the SE, add a Garuda Wu Lou on your bedside table. In addition, it would be good to carry an Annual Protection Amulet to protect yourself against the negative energy. This also applies to those born in the Years of the Dragon and Snake.
This is a great month for academic success and artistic creativity, as well as recognition and promotion thanks to the monthly Victory Star. Students studying for an exam and authors will particularly benefit from this combination of stars.
Activate your SOUTH with a figure of Luo Han or a 7 Level Pagoda to boost study luck and make the words flow.
If you are single looking for love, this month is also excellent to enhance your romance luck. Display a pair of Mandarin Ducks or Love Birds in your SOUTH or the SOUTH of your bedroom and/or wear a 2-Eyed Dzi to attract a new love into your life.
Do NOT have water here this month as that might lead to infidelity.
Be ready for some arguments in your SW this month! Family members staying in the SW can be quite difficult to live with as the monthly Conflict Star flies in, bringing aggravation and aggression. The mothers will be particularly affected, as well as those born in the Years of the Sheep and Monkey.
Keep this area as quiet as possible and place a Red Eagle or a pair of Bejewelled Red Fu Dogs to calm the energy.
There is still some speculative luck though thanks to the annual No 6 Star and you might still receive an unexpected windfall. To enhance, use a quiet wealth activator, eg a Wealth Bowl, a Wealth Tree, a God of Wealth sitting on Tiger, or a 3-legged Toad.
This is an unfavourable combination, leading occupants of this sector to lose their focus and commit errors in paperwork, which will be the cause of frequent arguments and misunderstandings.
Place a Blue Rhino and Elephant or an Anti-Burglary lumi tile here to restore harmony and pacify the stars.
The stars could also bring illness energy affecting the tongue and liver. The eldest son in particular should stay away from the EAST if possible.
Those with bedrooms in the EAST ought to carry a Health Amulet for protection.
The CENTRE area is one of the most auspicious sectors this month as the stars bring good news regarding money matters. Those staying in the CENTRE might receive an unexpected windfall thanks to the Heaven Star flying in this month.
I definitely recommend to enhance the positive energy with 3 Great Emperors on Horseback or simply with 6 Metal Coins placed here to boost your prosperity luck.
Having said that, the elements of the stars clash, which might cause arguments between the generations. If you experience any of this, use Yin Water to calm the energy and restore peace.
Great news for the WEST, as the monthly No 8 Star drastically improves your wealth luck AND adds up to a Sum-of-Ten with the annual Illness Star. This changes the energy completely, giving residents of the WEST opportunities to achieve financial success. Accumulation of properties and assets will also go much smoother.
To enhance, place one or more Wealth Chests or the 5 Dzambhala in your WEST. You might find opportunities to boost your income and career coming your way.
Look out for your health though, as there may be occasional sickness spells, but these should only be minor. For protection, display a large Herbal Wu Lou or the Medicine Buddha.
Having the monthly No 9 Star flying into a sector that is already suffering from a negative star is not good. If your living room or family room is located in the NE keep it brightly lit, as there are chances of huge arguments within the household/family members. The same goes if your main entrance is in the NE.
Place a pair of Bejewelled Red Fu Dogs to keep the quarrelsome energy under control. A red rug will also help.
Do NOT have candles or other types of open flames here as there is danger of accidental fire. If this is your kitchen, please be particularly careful.
People staying in the NORTH and those born in the Year of the Rat could be in serious trouble this month as the 5/2 combination brings misfortune and illness of a most serious kind. Bad business decisions could lead to financial ruin or residents could suddenly develop an incurable disease. Please do not take this lightly and move to another room if you can.
Place a Garuda Wu Lou on your bedside table to protect your health. If you do not feel well, go and see your doctor. Do not take any chances this month.
Avoid open fires as these could cause accidents.
Make sure you have a large 5 Element Pagoda in your NORTH to subdue the negative energy.
The monthly No 7 Star flies into the NW, bringing loss of wealth for those saying here.
Display a Blue Rhino and Elephant Mountain to protect against burglary. If your bedroom is located in the NW, it would be good to carry an Anti-Burglary Amulet for protection.
Remove any metal windchimes or other metal ornaments you might have hanging in your NW to avoid the danger of injury caused by them.
You might also experience stiff competition and politics at work. In this case, Kuan Kung will bring solid support from your superiors and a Victory Horse placed on your desk will help you overcome any competition you might be facing.
