There are many different schools of Feng Shui, and because one’s environment significantly affects an individual’s well-being, all are concerned with the concentric interactions of physical surroundings such as buildings, trees, mountains, rivers, roads and so on. Thus it’s believed that considerations from the smallest decorative object, up to and including the overall design of a structure or property, constitute its Feng Shui.
One popular method of Feng Shui is the Flying Star system, which represents the nine directions and the major stars that move in and out through their quadrants. The system’s origin was likely inspired by the constellation we call the Big Dipper. The reason this theory is called Flying Stars is due to energy’s constant motion and directional impact.
The Flying Star system is associated with the Compass School of Feng Shui. People who ascribe to this school look at the horoscope of a building. Their method incorporates a building’s geographic positioning, cartographical direction, and chronologic age to create a Flying Star chart and numerological diagram. By analyzing the stars that are present in each of the various directions, one can designate in which quadrant Feng Shui appointments should be installed in order to reduce negative influences and to activate auspicious energies.
It is okay to re-use items from a previous year’s Flying Star adjustments i.e. Foo Dogs, coins etc. Check their condition and if you find them to be damaged you must replace them. However, there should be at least one new ingredient in your Flying Star recipe. New Year Paper Couplets must always be new.
