Annual Flying Stars for the Year of the Water Tiger

Ever wondered why specific years are just great and others extremely bad?

You might have had great years when you made a lot of money or traveled to many places, and some years were terrible, you were ill, or you faced obstacles in whatever you tried to do. One of the reasons for the ups and downs in your life is the annual flying stars, which change their position every year. 

Every year the Feng Shui of your space (your home or office) is affected by annual energetic influences.

What is this Flying Stars thing? The Flying Star Feng Shui is a system of calculating how energy moves and behaves. Because it works quickly compared to other methods, this is a pretty popular system to talk about each year.

What are Stars exactly? Stars are unseen energies that behave in distinct ways based on their environment.

The extent to which these stars influence you depends on the Flying Stars chart and in which areas of the building you spend the most time for essential activities such as sleeping, working, relaxing, and entering/leaving (the doors you use most).

The nature of how the stars behave and what we can expect when they visit us in each section of our environment is predictable. Stars are sometimes labeled ‘good’ stars and ‘bad’ stars. Although no star is truly good or bad, this gives us a general idea of what to expect.

Stars that “fly” means the energy is not stagnant; it keeps changing position. As the name implies, the annual stars can exert their influence only for one year.

If you are a little familiar with Feng Shui, you will notice that the position of the stars this year is the same as the Luo Shu. So, the stars are essentially in their home palaces.

What does that mean? It simply means that they are pretty comfortable, like hanging out with good friends, if the environment supports the star’s energy.

The nine stars are assigned a number, element (one of the Five Elements in Feng Shui), and behavioral attributes. Here are some of the most common ‘names’ used to identify them:

 Star 1: Noble People

 Star 2: Sickness

 Star 3: Arguments

 Star 4: Romance, Travel, & Education

 Star 5: Misfortune, Calamity, Disaster

 Star 6: Career/Authority

 Star 7: Robbery

 Star 8: Current Wealth

 Star 9: Future Wealth


How to use Flying Stars this year? It would be best to use the rooms with auspicious stars as your bedroom, kitchen, study or office. If it is not possible for you to use these rooms, then at least open up the windows in the South and Northeast sectors to let in the prosperous Qi. South is the location of Star 9, and Northeast is the location of star 8 this year.

What to use, where to spend time? In general, if you aren’t sure, these are pretty safe sectors this year: Southeast, South, Northeast, and North.

With a bit of planning, you can identify some of the best energy this year and give yourself a boost!
