As most Feng Shui practitioners know, in flying star system, there is an annual energy cycle. For the year of 2020, the annual flying star can be seen in figure 1 below.
Figure 1 - Annual Flying Star for 2020
Let’s take an example of star 8 (wealth star), which visits North West (NW) sector in 2020. It is tempting to activate star 8 in NW, isn’t it? Nothing is wrong with this idea. However, it is important to understand that annual energy cycle is just one part of the analysis. Let’s not forget the full chart of the whole property.
Figure 2 - Natal and Annual Flying Star for P8, South Facing House
Figure 2 is the flying star chart of a period-8, South 2 facing house. The top two numbers in each box are typically called mountain (left) and water (right) stars. These stars are the permanent energy of the sector. The bottom numbers are the annual stars. In 2020, the wealth star is visiting the master bedroom at NW sector. Yes, we can use this room more often to harness the good energy of star 8 and possibly add enhancers based on the five element principles to further activate the star 8 (earth element). This is great, but please also notice the permanent energy in that sector. NW sector is where the star 5 and 2 reside. Both star 5 and 2 carry negative energies and … they’re also earth elements. Therefore, activating star 8 in the master bedroom can also trigger negative energies of the star 5 and 2.
Let’s talk about other location from figure 2: the main door area. The south sector has double wealth star (double star 8!) and being in the main door, the good star 8 is activated most of the time. Several practitioners like to enhance the auspiciousness of star 8 in the main door using the five-element principle. This is great, but there is a caveat. In 2020, star 2 (sickness) is visiting the South sector. Since 2, 5 and 8 are earth element stars, enhancing star 8 with five element principle can also trigger the negative energy of star 2 (or 5) when they’re visiting annually or monthly. This explains why activation of good stars sometimes do not work as expected or may bring other harms. It is also important to understand that five-element principle isn’t always the best method to use.
So, which areas are great in 2020? South West and West sectors (front and middle bedrooms) are great areas to use! West sector for example, the permanent energy is defined by white stars 1 & 6, and is visited by star 9. They’re all stars with positive energies. By using this room more often in 2020 and possibly adding enhancers, occupants can harness abundant positive energies.
We hope this short article can fully show the importance of a full Feng Shui analysis/audit and also how annual (or monthly) energy cycle is linked to the sector’s permanent energy.
