Flying Stars Aspects for May

Hey everyone, 

Hope this month's email finds you healthy, happy,  and sassy!! You deserve it!! The Month of May could be a good month for money and fortune but a trying month for stability in the earth energy and grounding. Periodically you may feel off balance and out of sorts this month.  Here is the Aspects for May. Remember to make your sun/moon water on the full and new moon to clear your energy. 

The tornados which tore though  middle America gave credibility to the year's predictions. However, my prediction was off, I thought it may be an earthquake. Humm, who knew!!  The instability of the wind and earth this year gives way to natural disasters. The good news is the USA is in the West so the energy of the bagua is in a 9 for expansion, illuimination and celebration. 

Here you go for the month's aspects and have a wonderful springtime with lots of new opportunity and fanfare!! 

Flying Stars Monthly Aspects for May

The energy of your home does affect your well being.  It is easy to enhance your prosperity, health, and relationships by adjusting your home energy for clarity and direction. As you adjust monthly, the recommendations within this article and journal your changes, by the end of the month you will be so surprise at how subtle but inspiring the change. Only do a few adjustments at time if they seem too overwhelming. Work with only one direction of choice and add the next month. As you follow these recommendations monthly in this newsletter, it will change the way you view your home. Discipline yourself and your home to achieve your highest potential.

The month of May finds the Monthly Flying Stars lined up the Flying Stars of the original ba-gua bringing with it exceptionally good energy to some sectors of the home. This month use the directions of the Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, and Southeast to enhance your career and money prosperity.

The bad news is-- May begins the month with the #5 star of instability flying to the center of the home and world.  This can cause a lot of instability in the government, earth energies of the earth such as volcanoes and earthquake, and instabilities within the home. Place salt in the center of the home this month to offset any unstable energy. Keep the center of the home quiet this month. No extra lighting or fire energy should be placed in the center of the home this month. If you are using salt lamps or candles do not light them this month in the center of the home.

The number #6 flies to the travel area of the home bringing with it discipline, logic, and authority to move you forward in your drive to your goals. In the Northwest of your home this month place metal in the form of 6 Chinese Coins or metals items in increments of 6.  The monthly #6 coupled with the annual #8 in the Northwest makes the Northwest sector of your home or room the most powerful of all this month for business advancement and promotion. Place water with citrine stone and Chinese coins in the Northwest of your home this month. This energy is strongest for the Pig and Dog and animals friend of both.

The #7 of instability flies to the West this month bringing an unsetting feeling to theWest of the home and the Rooster.  Place extra water in the West of the home to downplay and renew the energy. You may also place blue detergent in the West to slicken the metal of the #7.

The Northeast of the home or business can be profitable this month for everyone. The ox and tiger, especially, will see increases in money or promotion coming to them. The monthly #8 pairing with the original ba-gua #8 coupled with the annual #1 of career makes the Northeast also a seriously wonderful area of prosperity and promotion. Place citrine stones and water in the Northeast this year and leave it all year long!!

The #9 of expansion flies to the South this month bringing some negative energy to the south of the home and to the horse zodiac animal.  As it couples with the #2 of illness in the South there may be a tendency toward illness and accident. Simply take extra precautions this month with risk taking. Stay away from hospitals and sick people. Be especially careful of burn out this month. Get your rest, eat right, and exercise appropriately. Good health is something to be maintained not taken for granted. Work each day to become stronger physically by eating right, exercising moderately, and getting your rest.

The #1 of Career flies to the North. Place some water in this area to activate. TheNorth facing homes and Rat may see increases in money coming to them. However coupled with the #3 of conflict, you may feel conflicted about some decisions you may have to make about career and money. Use a red Buddha or a rooster placed in the north of your home to offset this energy. Place an elephant on his side with his ear to the ground to remind you to listen to the ideas of others. Remember the story of judgment and behavior. Stay flexible 

The #2 of illness flies to the Southwest and the sector of  sheep, monkey and woman. Place extra metal and/ or your metal calabash or wu luo in this area to push down this energy. Be careful of burnout. Eat right, exercise appropriately, and get some serious rest.

The #3 star of conflict flies to the East and the place of the Rabbit this month. This coupling with the #5 can bring some unstable energy into all sectors of prosperity, relationship, and health, bringing change and a need to make solid decisions. Place a red Buddha or red Mandela in the East for resolution and wise decision-making. Carry clear crystals for clarity and wisdom. Replace your salt water cure in the East this month.

Place 4 bamboos in water in the South East this month for academic success. For romance place peonies in the Southeast.  If trying to get pregnant this month, use the Southeast of your home.

Due to the complexity of the Monthly Flying Stars Feng Shui, I am NOW making available a monthly conference call on the monthly aspects of Feng Shui to further help you to understand how the aspects may affect the energy of your life from month to month. Mid month the information will be posted on with  more information.

If you wish to be removed from the email list please let me know. Thank you.

Spring and Your April Feng Shui

Spring and Feng Shui

Spring is the sign of New Beginnings.  The spring begins a new cycle of making the decision to let go of the old and manifesting a vision to welcome the new. This means walking your talk. There is a lot of talking out there but it can only hold power for you when you walk it.  Believe me, when you talk and don’t walk, people quit listening.  When you walk the talk, people notice.

With the Spring Equinox, we move into the sign of Aries of action which this year immediately conjuncts Uranus, a planet of freedom and independence. Aries is a fiery sign, which rebels against the norm and is the risk taker. This is the time, to make put your walk into action.  The economy is stressful; the war disturbing, and the weather patterns are horrible. Everywhere, you hear people blaming and complaining. However, you can choose to react or respond to the difficulties in your life.  You can focus or scatter. You can choose to follow or lead. You can have sour lemons or make lemonade. That choice is always yours.

You can choose today and each day after to step through the fear of the unknown and have faith in your own abilities. Take a deep breath and put one foot in front of the other and make the changes you have been speaking of lately.

April  is an excellent time to start new beginnings. During the month of April the flying stars power number of  #6 flies to  the center of the home bringing with it  discipline, logic, and authority to move you forward in your drive to your goals. In the center of your home this month place metal in the form of 6 Chinese Coins or metals  items in increments of 6. Be sure to place the color blue or water in the center of the home as well.  

The #7 of instability flies to the Northwest this month bringing an unsetting feeling to the Northwest. Place water with Citrine stones in the Northwest and/or change the water in the fountain already sitting there. At the end of this month, be sure to place the citrine stones from the fountain in salt water to cleanse before resetting for May. 

The west of the home or business will be profitable this month for everyone. The Rooster may see changes in money at work or promotion with high profile recognition. The earth element pairing with the creative aspect of the West this month promotes high output or profit.   Use the West for all business dealings this month or face the West while negotiating business.  P
lace citrine stones in west to activate this aspect or carry citrine stones in your pocket for luck.

The #9 of expansion flies to the Northeast bringing money to career and the ox and tiger.  Place extra lighting in the northeast of your home to  bring illumination to career.  Be sure the annual water feature is in place. 

The #1 of Career flies to the South. Place some water in this area to activate. The horse or South Facing homes may see increases in money coming to them, however, the horse  house this year needs to be careful of burnout or accident. Place a wu-lou at the front door of the South Facing house. The horse should have a wu-lou by their bed. 

This month the Rat and north facing homes are prone to illness and accident. Place a wu-lou at the front door. The rat should have a wu-lou by their bed. 

The month may be trying for the sheep, monkey and women. The #3 star of conflict flies to the Southwest bringing change and a need to make solid decisions. Place a red Buddha or red Mandala in the Southwest for resolution and wise decision-making. Carry  clear crystals for clarity and wisdom. 

Place bamboo in water in the East this month for academic success. For romance place peonies. If trying to get pregnant this month, use the east of your home. Refresh  your salt water cure in the East this month. 

Place Salt water in the Southeast  to calm the unstable energy of the #5.

On the new and full moon place a vase or container full of water on the earth  in the moon light to be used in your bath or  to drink.  This water of the moon creates a balance in the body  between the earth and the feminine energy of the moon and the masculine energy of the  heavens.  It cleanses, balances, and restores calm and peace.  It promotes clear thinking when clear decisions are needed. You may wish to cover the container  if you plan to drink it. The energy will still infuse through the glass.  It is important to remember to bring in the water before the sun comes up.

Next you can make Sun Water by placing more containers of water, exactly as you did with  the Moon water, in the sun on the day of or day after the full moon. The Sun water helps to balance the Yang energy of the body. Place the glass container on the ground in direct bright sunlight for about 30 minutes maximum. Too much energy is as bad as too little.  The sunlight will infuse the water with the full spectrum of universal light  energy--white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and indigo-black--  and will nourish the part of the body associated with the corresponding color. This  can be very energizing and can help support the body  to heal from yin ailments  which are cold and damp in nature-cold, flu, pneumonia, intestinal and stomach weakness, etc.
