2018 Feng Shui Annual Flying Stars and Afflictions at home


"Flying Stars" are not strictly speaking stars, they have no link with astronomy or astrology. It's just a vivid symbol to explain the energies found in the house. “Annual” Stars, as their name suggest, “fly” and change their area in the house each year, usually on February 4.
Do not get confused with solar calendar that starts on 4 February and lunar calendar (celebration Chinese New Year on 16 February 2018 of the Yang Earth Dog "Wu Xu" 戊戌). Each new solar year, starting on 4 February, annual stars move to different sectors.

On 2018 February 4th, according to the beneficial or bad nature of the Star (energy), you should place special cures in some areas and be sure to replace them every year. Each Star corresponds to one of the five elements in Feng Shui (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood). You can use producing and weakening cycles between those five elements to enhance or diminish a Star influence placing a particular element in the sector. It will enhance beneficial energies and protect you from bad energies.

Three sectors are to take mostly into account in 2018 : the Southeast with the beneficial 8 Star that bring a lot of prosperity but unfortunately this year mixed with the annual Affliction Sui Pothe North with the malevolent 5 Yellow star and in the same sector the Three Killing aka San Sha, and eventually the Northwest sector with the annual Affliction Tai Sui. Better leave the Southeast, North and Northwest sectors quiet this year.s.
These tips are only for the 2018 year. The annual Flying Stars have less influence than the original Flying Stars chart of your house. This original chart is established according to each house, depending on the Period and the facing of the house. Please ask a classical Feng Shui Master to make a comprehensive audit for your house or office.
