There are a number of 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 ancients called it 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 reuse 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.

Flying Stars Predictions for the Year 2024

FLYING STARS CHANGE FEBRUARY 4th, 2024 at 4:26 PM local time.

The best Flying Star directions in 2024 include Southwest, Northwest, North, and Northeast. In general, these are lucky areas and great locations for important spaces such as the front entrance, bedrooms, or kitchens.

There are “clashing swords” in the Center. If your bedroom or Kitchen is in the Center, pay attention to the possibility of more quarrelling and fighting.

The Illness Star (Sector 2) is in the Southeast and the Disaster Star (Sector 5) is in the West. To reduce the effect of these stars, add Feng Shui Flying Star metal cures in these areas (See adjustment in the sectors below).

Overall, the element of wood is at the CENTER of 2024, which can bring growth and new beginnings. Regarding the Dispute Star in the CENTER, some might find themselves pushing too hard or going too fast, and as a result, run out of steam early on. However, 2024 will overall be a time to cut back and add the element of fire to help adjust the overgrowth of wood. Fire helps to ‘burn up excessive wood energies.’ In Sector 3, located at the center of the chart, there could be a loss of money, financial troubles, or perhaps legal issues, including lawsuits. An adjustment in the center sector is necessary.

In the Flying Star system of Feng Shui there is a star referred to as the Tai Sui AKA Tai Sway, or the Grand Duke Jupiter. This is a very important star, said to influence much about the year itself.
