In this article, we’ll only be looking at the interaction of the annual and the month stars and for a more comprehensive Flying Star evaluation it is essential that both basic Water and Mountain stars of the chart are taken into consideration. The black numbers in the Lo-Shu square are the annual Flying Stars; the red ones show the monthly stars.
Before we begin, please remove all the specific remedies for the previous Snake month if you installed any.
Let’s start with the most promising area first. Many forget how important it can be to activate the auspicious stars – when it is appropriate – for the purpose of diminishing the ill effects of inauspicious ones, just like all shadows and darkness disappear when the sun shines.
This is absolutely the best area with prosperity star 8 joining the White star 1 in East sector. If you have your main entrance door or another active room in the eastern sector along with a supporting Water star, you may try to use enhancements even if you haven’t activated the area for the annual 1 yet. Supporting Water stars are: 8, 1, 3 and 4, while White star 6 is more neutral. With Water stars 2, 5 and 7, the area is best not activated.
The other sectors needing attention this month:
Monthly White star 1 flies in to the middle, Tai-Qi sector and joins the Jade star 3. Even though White star 1 is considered auspicious, the combination enhences and activates angry Jade star 3. If the active Mountain or Water stars of East sector are encouraging this negative combination, it is best to use Fire element as remedy, such as a red decorative object or lamps and candles, whenever these stars affect a room with an important function.
Black 2 sickness star is flying to north-west this month. As the wood star 4 will be kick starting Black 2, if your bedroom, living room or entrance door is located in this sector it is highly recommended to counteract this negative energy by using 6-coins. Metal element in all its representations can help as well, as Black 2 is an Earth star.
Red star 7 moving in with fire star 9 might require some attention, depending on which part of the house or work space this sector occupies. In 81 Flying Star combinations, 7 and 9 together spell fire disaster or sex scandals. However, in general the meaning of these combinations should not be taken literally, especially when they are negative. Still, it would be a good idea to use fresh bamboo in water depending on the original water or mountain stars of this sector and the function of the room. For example, if the active Water or Mountain stars are Earth, such as 2 and 5 supporting the Red 7, a remedy is highly recommended along with the remedies for the Earth stars.
This time Purple 9 fire star flies in with annual Black star 2. Fire star 9 supporting the earth star Black 2 might cause health issues and it would be advisable to use 6-metal coins cure unless the area is occupied by storage or bathrooms.
If you have your entrance door or an important room in south sector, you might need to use cures for both 7 (bamboo in water) and 5 ( wind-chime/salt water), regardless what the water and mountain stars are in this sector.
Month star Jade 3 flies to Tai Qi and activates Yellow 5. If you have this section active by having a living room or meeting room at work, stairs or a court yard in this area, please use the appropriate remedies. Yellow 5 can be drained by using the Metal and Water element. However the most efficient remedy for this purpose is an all-metal wind-chime.
In places where a wind-chime is not suitable, a salt water remedy can be used instead. If you already dealt with annual Yellow 5, it won’t be necessary to do anything else here. The Water element can also be useful to drain Yellow 5. If you are using actual water for this purpose, it needs to be still water.
All objects representing the Fire element should be removed from the area as Fire will activate and increase the impact of this potentially harmful star.
Best of Luck with all your preparations for the Water Horse month.
