rooster-coverThis year, 2017, will be a year of opportunity as well as a year of posturing for position. The   energy of the year has a double Rooster, so expect the year to be of pecking order and working up the ladder. The Yin Metal and Yin Fire bring forth both intellectual aspects and aspects of passion. Be aware. They can pull against each other in conflict or meld beautifully in a sculpture of what you want your life to be. It is always your choice. Your thoughts are always–your choice. The best of both spectrums are being presented to you and as they meet in the middle, they blend into a beautiful resurrected Phoenix rising. As the fire dies away, the incredible beauty of the metal sculpture of your creation will remain. Again, create the sculpture in the image of what you wish to be.

Right now in the world, we are seeing more posturing and an attainment of what we don’t want. Wrong approach to a successful new year. Many people are worried about that double rooster in the Four Pillar astrology for the year. I am not. One is yin or feminine fire and one is yin or feminine metal. There is no strong arm yang approach. It passed with the monkey. Today get your roosters on the same page. Put together your vision boards. It is a year of new beginnings and opportunities. Since 2017 has the numerology of a #1 and the center of the ba-gua has a #1, it brings forth the energy of the next nine years. What we manifest this year, sets a pattern for the next 9 years. That is why the vision boards becomes so useful. They remind us each day of the attainment of what we would like to be.

People ask me all the time what I wish for. I wish for happiness and good health. The rest will come. Basically my prayers are for world peace. A world where everyone can feel safe again. The Monkey was a rascal last year and we are still seeing the fall out from it and many people still trying to hold onto to that familiar brand of chaos. However, the Rooster on February 4th at the crack of dawn will be crowing and as the Monkey’s cage slams shut for another 12 years. Intellect and discipline will begin to guide the masses again.

Unexpectedly, a few months ago, a new Chinese Master presented himself to me. I didn’t even recognize him until he started talking to me about Feng Shui. When I told him I did Feng Shui, he said, I know. I was confused but accepted it was our destiny to meet. I asked him if he could teach me more. And he agreed. I have been troubled by the world and the mentality that the monkey brought forth and the fear it seems to have provoked. Today, as I spoke with my Master, I told him of my concerns. We spoke of the different animal interactions and I asked him how to calm the Rooster if it should become too aggressive. He said….Metal Rat. The Metal Rat will be strong and scurries quickly. It distracts the Rooster and interrupts his thinking and pattern of behavior. While the Rooster is distracted, he loses his disciplined edge. The Metal Rat is Rooster’s friend so the Rooster is not threatened or intimidated but amused by the intelligence the Metal Rat brings to the table. Place a Metal Rat in the West if you feel as though life is posturing against you this year.

 Rooster UP!

                           Monkey Down!!

 

“Finally Official!! 2016 Gregorian Calendar year is OVER!!  It is 2017!! AND with it the Yang Fire Monkey is slowly losing his grip and slipping away, as well. He has definitely been a wild ride for many. Myself included!!

“That darn monkey of chaos has tried hard to hang on but happily I can finally feel the energy releasing. We may have a few more bumps before he is gone but I already can feel the order and strut of the Rooster marching in. Signs of new communications are already crowing for many. We are hearing of new things each day that are being set in motion to manifest this year. It seems a new dawning of Aquarius with the Rooster’s Crow. There seems to be a new energy of creation in the air. ”

“The Chinese New Year officially begins the first day of spring and arrives this year on January 28th, 2017. However, the transition to the day of spring actually began at the winter solstice around December 21st-December 23rd. The Monkey energy is waning and the Rooster is building. ”

“Between now and January 28th begin to clear out the old energy and set your new year goals in manifestation. ”

“1.Start cleaning and de-cluttering your home and life. Organize. Get rid of all old clothing and old and ends in the home that no longer fit your lifestyle or desire for that lifestyle.”

“2.If the towels in your cabinet are stale from only using the top ones….wash them all.”
“Stale clothing and towels attract odor and energy of the past years. If washing doesn’t freshen your clothes, it is time to pitch them. Start over. (I used to donate them to charity thrift shops but no longer do so because that degrades the one who gets them. However, I give them to animal shelters for rags or bedding.)”

“3. Get rid of all outdated items in the home. Food, medication, toiletries, etc. These items take up space and collect dust if not used. Spices and toiletries lose their scent. This clearing also frees up space to allow chi to flow freely.”

“4. Buy new doormats for your front door. Put the words OH AH HUM on the back in black marker. It helps bring new clear energy into the home.”

“5. Throw away your old hairbrush and toothbrush. Start the new year with a clean, clear head. These items, which are used each day, collect mega energy and need replaced often for health reasons.”

“6. Wipe your computer clean of all programs and outdated emails that no longer serves your purpose. This action frees up brain space in your mind and frees up hard drive. The subconscious mind has enough to deal with. Back up any program you may feel you want to re visit in the future.”

“For more information on what to do to begin the new year, your copy of the 2017 Year of the Chinese Yin Rooster is waiting for you at www.amazon.com or www.maryshurtleff.com.
“Happy New Year.”

Back Cover:

Hold onto your hats this year!
For eons of time, soothsayers have looked to
the animals for answers and guidance from
God. They believe the animals speak to us and
their instincts teach us.
The year will prove to be one of changeability
and unpredictability. Watch for the signs. The
Fire Monkey’s wild ride may be one many will
not forget. This will be a year of transformation
and newly discovered passions with many
rejecting their conventional lifestyles for a
more laid back approach. Others may find the
courage to follow their life-long passion. Be
smart in all personal and business decisions.
Only make calculated moves.
The Monkey is highly intelligent with sharp
wits, unpredictability and quickness. Don’t be
surprised if things change on a dime this year.
The competitive Monkey may scheme to outwit
their opponent through manipulation and lies.
They love the Bohemian, unusual lifestyle of
freedom, and have difficulty being ‘normal’ or
conventional. Each person may feel the energy
of the Fire Monkey in their essence or see it in
another.
The year could turn into a “Hot Monkey Mess.”
Take time to play, dance, and enjoy life. Don’t
take yourself too seriously! What will your
prophesy be for the year? Find  out now!

Feng Shui Aspects for September 2015

 

Your home is an extension of your mind and your thoughts create your home. Does your home support your needs—emotionally, financially, physically, spiritually, and mentally? This monthly Feng Shui aspect feature will help you to make those assessments. All you have to do is read and place the objects appropriately and go about your month.

The Four-Pillar Eastern astrology and the Flying Stars method of Feng Shui is used to determine how the ener­gies of the Earth and its directions from different time periods affect your lives and well-being.  The Flying Stars Feng Shui, a method thousands of years old, is based on ancient calculations of astronomy, navigation, and mathematics. The Flying Stars method covers the natal or birth stars of your home; the annual flying stars that change each year with the Chinese New Year; and the monthly flying stars, which change monthly.

Disclaimer: All aspects and predictions of the flying stars are for entertainment purposes only and should not be used in the place of medical care if you should need it.

The adjustments may be placed in the directional sectors of the property, home, office, or desk.  

The month of September is considered the Metal Rooster. This month the element meeting the Rooster is wood. The metal/wood combo may help the Rooster to be kinder and gentler; not as abrasive. This month we may see many jockeying for position in the hen house. The Rooster never lets anyone see him sweat. This month, watch out for people blowing themselves up to be more than they are. Stay humble.

 This month, the number #7 of karma and retribution/reckoning flies to the Center of the ba-gua meeting up with a #3 of conflict. Be careful of BIG disagreement that may result in a lawsuit or divorce. Place a bowl of blue detergent, salt, and water in equal parts in the center of your home. Also place a Brown or Stone Buddha to calm energy and raw clear crystals for clear thinking. Read ALL the fine print in signing of important papers. Fraud and con artistry is high this month. Always have a spiritual deity in the center of your home each year to remind you of the higher power that may help guide your insights and decisions. Trust all is as it should be.

 The wealth-flying star is located in the North West of the ba-gua energy this month bringing good fortune to the Pig and Dog and Northwest facing homes. Place yellow citrine in the Northwest of the home to enhance the wealth factor. Place the infinity symbol in this area to remain you of your never-ending supply of wealth, health and happiness. The aspect of wealth joins the energy of academic achievement, which makes it especially good for the Patriarchal figure of the home.

 The expansion star flies into the West this year joining the instability star. Take no unnecessary risks in the West this month and year.  This month keep the West especially still. Place a glass of 1/3 water, 1/3 sea salt, and 1/3 blue detergent in the West this month. The Rooster and West facing homes must watch his health, money, and relationships this year. Place a wu-lou or Gold Metal Rooster in this area to weigh down the energy. Take Epsom salts with lavender baths or swim to keep the body healthy and mind calm. Drink plenty of water. If you wish, you can do a Himalayan Salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan Salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time.  Always consult your doctor if you have any questions about your health.

 The career star flies into the Northeast this month bringing a combo of the Ho Tu numbers 1/6 with possible career changes and promotions to the Ox and Tiger and Northeast facing homes. Place water, images of water, or fish in the Northeast for Career luck. The annual adjustments of 6 Gold coins in this area to enhance business ventures should still remain in place this month. Place a Gold Rooster on your desk to stop backstabbing and politicking. However, the power star is in your corner so there is a chance of speculative luck all year.

 This month—AGAIN– keep the South calm.  This South and the Horse have the #7 of instability and karma in it’s sector, all year.  The South facing home or South sector of your home may feel off balance again this month when the illness and emotions star flies into that space. Place a Gold Metal Wu Lou or extra metal in the South area of the home this month to ward off illness. The Horse and South facing home must get their rest to avoid emotional burnout.

 Keep blue flowers or still water at your front door all year on the left side looking out. Keep lighting low and be careful with fire. Put 1/3 salt, 1/3 water, and 1/3 blue detergent in a bowl and place it in the South. Place smooth clear crystal balls in this area for smooth sailing. Any work done in this area must be checked and double-checked for mistakes. Check over all legal documents—especially Horse people. The Horse may feel off balance and somewhat cranky and tired this month. If this should happen, get rest and stay quiet. Remember: Tomorrow in another day. Take baths, swim, and be kind to yourself. This month…just rest. This year, the South energy is about change and mastery of your karma.

 This month, the Ho Tu # 2/7 combination come together to form a fire combination and can be especially advantageous to the fire energy of the South and the Horse. Fire energy is good for closing deals or beginning new projects, which may mean money windfalls, and past debt repayment out of the blue. Place crystal jewels or crystal balls or raw crystals in the South for mental clarity. This month, balance the energy of the South with a little bit of each element.

 This year, the wealth-flying star is located in the North of the ba-gua energy map. This month the #3 of conflict flies to the North, bringing with it a combination of a Ho-Tu numbers 3/8. This can bring fortune to the Rat and North facing home but with possible conflict and bickering. The 3/8 combo brings balance to the North as it forms wood, which is the product of water. Creativity is high in the North this month. Place moving water in the North of the home to enhance the wealth factor as well as help calm any heated conflict this month surrounding money or relationships. Place the infinity symbol in this area to remain you of your never-ending supply of wealth, health and happiness

The Rat may feel off balance and somewhat cranky and tired this month. Place a Red Buddha in this area to stifle the combative wood.

 Romance is in the Southwest this month for women, Monkey and Sheep people. For romantic luck place a pink peony flowers or a pair of Mandarin ducks in the Southwest. The Ho Tu 4/9 combo in the Southwest expands the luck for Romance to find you. Place 4 bamboos for academic achievement for those students or teachers returning to school. Learning and intuition is high this month in the Southwest and for the Sheep and Monkey people. Listen carefully and execute properly.

 The East and Rabbit may feel ‘off’ this month. Remove all fire energy from this sector and add wood. Keep this sector quiet!! Place Saltwater Combo in the East of the home, room, or office to stabilize energy. This month the Rabbit may wish to just relax and lay low. Take no gambling or emotional risks. You may place extra salt this sector to absorb positive ions and stabilize energy. Place any of the protectors, fu dogs, chi luns, Kuan Kung, coin sword, protection amulets, etc. in this area.

 This month, the Southeast, Dragon, and Snake may receive unexpected recognition this month. Place 6 Gold coins in this area to enhance the star of power and authority. With power and authority comes responsibly for your decisions and choices. Chose wisely. Do a brief mediation visualizing ideas to bring your higher goals to your front door. Ask your mind to create you a plan to follow to bring wealth into your life. Then listen and act upon it.

 The Dragon, Snake and areas of the Southeast must continue to watch their health all year. The Snake and Dragon may wish to take extra care to get plenty of sleep, eat right, exercise to release emotions, and not burn the candle at both ends. Place a wu-lou or metal in this area to weigh down the energy. The Snake and Dragon may take Epsom salts with lavender baths or swim to keep the body healthy. Drink plenty of water. If you wish, you can do a Himalayan Salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan Salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time. You may also wish to counter measure with a blue detergent/Salt/Water Combo in this sector too.

 Many tell me the aspects overwhelm them. Go back, read them, and take one directions at a time and just work with it. Don’t panic. Do the adjustments at your leisure or only do the directions you feel are a problem.  Eat the elephant one bite at a time. Pretty soon, you will get it and eat the whole elephant!! Have a fantastic month. Peace be with you!!

 

Blue Moon—July 31st

What does it mean? The Blue Moon is considered the second full moon of a month. They occur infrequently, hence the saying….once in a blue moon. On July 31, 2015 at 4:42 MST, the blue moon will be fully visible in the heavens. The next blue moon will not occur until January 31, 2018.

The full moon cycle has a large drawing and pulling influence on any water on the earth surface. The human body is estimated to contain anywhere from 65-75% water, therefore it can be expected to have an effect upon the human body, as well. Water energy is a conduit to the emotions of the body, explaining why the full moon will have a pulling affect upon the body.

Emotions are drawn to the surface at this time. During a full moon cycle, emergency room are known to be busier. As a past bartender, I can personally tell you, there were more bar fights during the full moon than any other time of the month. I never worked nights during that time. It was pandemonium.

On a metaphysical spiritual level the full moon is traditionally about ‘letting go’ or ‘putting an end to’ pattern. This Blue Moon, the second in the same month, becomes intensified with energy and is an excellent time to start purging those things in your life you no longer wish to be associated.

Place a container of water out the night of the Blue Moon that you will drink the next few days until gone. This infused energy will help cleanse the body. You may also add a tsp. of Himalayan salt to it if you wish for more cleansing effect.

Always check with your doctor if on medication that may interact with salt.

Next, make a list of the things in your life you wish to let go of. Use a pencil to write your list, as a pen is more permanent. This list may include emotions, people, personal possessions, job, illness, etc. A day before the moon, on the moon, and the day after the moon, meditate a few minutes each day with your list seeing these things literally diminish and grow less and less important to you as you finally are able, on the last day, see them fade away. Imagine your troubles flying away on the wings of birds or floating away on a boat. There are several methods you may use to finally get rid of the paper.

  1. You may put the list on toilet paper and literally flush it down the toilet to never be seen again!!
  1. Make a small fire and burn the note. When the fire burns down place the ashes outside your property. Place the ashes safely in a garbage container or bury in the ground away from your normal places of activity. Don’t scatter them in a place you visit. You may also tear up the paper into at least 9 pieces and bury 9 inches in the ground—9 signifying endings—and plant a tree or flower on it.
  1. You may tie your paper to tree or post outdoor and let the wind carry the words away. Let the rain wash the pencil off the paper or the sun bleach it.

Find the method that feels appropriate to you but please don’t litter. Each day after the moon, look at the moon and mentally add any other things you wish to let go. Be sure to say thank you. Drink your moon water until gone.

The moon and its influence will diminish over the next two weeks in a New Moon with new beginnings. Make a new list of new beginning!!

 

 

 

 

 

                                       Feng Shui Aspects for August 2015

IMG_5333

Your home is an extension of your mind and your thoughts create your home.  Does  your home support your needs—emotionally, financially, physically, spiritually, and mentally? This monthly Feng Shui aspect feature will help you to make those assessments. All you have to do is read and place the objects appropriately and go about your month.

The Four-Pillar Eastern astrology and the Flying Stars method of Feng Shui is used to determine how the Earth and its directions from different time periods affect your lives and well-being. The Flying Stars Feng Shui, a method thousands of years old, is based on ancient calculations of astronomy, navigation, and mathematics. The Flying Stars method covers the natal or birth stars of your home; the annual flying stars that change each year with the Chinese New Year; and the monthly flying stars, which change monthly.

Disclaimer: All aspects and predictions of the flying stars are for entertainment purposes only and should not be used in the place of medical care if you should need it. The adjustments may be placed in the directional sectors of the property, home, office, or desk.

AUGUST: THE MONTH OF THE YANG WOOD MONKEY

August is the month of the Masculine Yang Wood Monkey. The upside of the Yang Wood Monkey is he is a great communicator and  can get along well with others. He can multi-task and can succeed at just about any profession.  He is usually well liked and fun loving.  With this tendency in the air, it is important this month to balance work and play or tensions may arise.

The down side to the Monkey is he knows how to play the game but may not always be honest in his feelings. His demeanor may be a ruse—what you see, may not be what you get.  The Wood Monkey  can be unpredictable–one minute playing and laughing and the next moment,  angry or sullen. He may  be passive aggressive or just aggressive.  The shadow part of the Wood Monkey may also  have a tendency to be selfish and arrogant and thinks himself higher than those around him. Tread carefully this month where money or your heart is concerned.

This month take special care in your attitude. Don’t offend others unnecessarily because next month when the Monkey energy leaves, you will still be here, with those you offended. Place a green elephant with his ear to the ground on your desk or in a living area to offset any miscommunication issues. Place a red Buddha image in the center of your home to remind you of happy home.

Since the Wood Monkey loves to play,  take time this month  to play, dance, and enjoy the end of summer. Fall is coming quickly!

AUGUST FENG SHUI FOR THE CENTER OF THE HOME

This month, the Wealth flying star is located in the Center of the ba-gua energy map  of the home bringing with it a combination of the HoTu numbers 3/8. This can bring fortune to all world markets but not without conflict and bickering. The Wood Monkey energy may play a role in whether the outcome will be good or bad. This 3/8 combination brings balance to the center and combines to make more wood for growth and creativity. Place moving water in the center of the home to enhance the wealth factor as well as help calm any heated conflict this month surrounding money or relationships. Place the infinity symbol in this area to remind you of your never-ending supply of wealth, health and happiness.

This month, the joints, muscles, and tendons of the body may feel over stimulated by the added Wood energy. Use cool water or warm oil to soothe.

Always have a spiritual deity in the center of your home each year to remind you of the higher power that may help guide your insights and decisions. Trust all is as it should be.

NORTHWEST  OF THE HOME– Dog and Pig

The Star of Expansion flies to the Northwest to form another HoTu combination of 4/9, bringing balance. This combination creates metal energy. Since the Northwest is ruled by metal, this combo is especially good for the patriarchal figure of the home. Place clear crystals, metal, glass, or chrome in this area to expand those projects; inventive ideas, follow through and productivity may increase this month. Use the NW sector to brainstorm.

Use very little fire energy in this area and be careful of fire danger in the NW this month. This added fire energy could also over-activate the emotions of the heart—good and bad. Be careful of extramarital affairs and promiscuous behavior. The Dog and Pig may be faced with emotional issues this month. Use water to expel the emotions and reground with Obsidian stone.

WEST OF THE HOME – Rooster

This month could be a good month for career changes and promotions in the West and for the Rooster. Place images of water or fish in the West for Career Luck. However, stay mindful of the instability of the West this year. Take no unnecessary risks in the West. Place a glass of 1/3 water, 1/3 sea salt, and 1/3 blue detergent in the West this month. The Rooster must still watch his health this year. Place a wu-lou or gold metal rooster in this area to weigh down the energy. Bathe with Epsom salts and lavender or swim to keep the body healthy. Drink plenty of water. If you wish, you can drink a Himalayan salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time. Always consult your doctor if you have any questions about your health.

NORTHEAST OF THE HOME – Tiger and Ox

Place a gold metal Wu Lou or extra metal in the Northeast area of the home this month to ward off illness. The Tiger and Ox must get their rest. The annual adjustments of 6 gold coins in this area to offset business conflicts should still remain in place this month. Place a gold rooster on your desk to stop backstabbing and politicking. However, the power star is in your corner so there is a chance of speculative luck all year.

SOUTH OF THE HOME– Horse

This month, again, keep the South calm. The South facing home or South sector of your home may feel off balance again this month. Put blue flowers or still water at your front door on the left side looking out. Keep lighting low and be careful with fire. Put 1/3 salt, 1/3 water, and 1/3 blue detergent in a bowl and place it in the South. Place smooth clear crystal balls in this area for smooth sailing. Any work done in this area must be checked and double-checked for mistakes. Check over all legal documents—especially Horse people. The Horse may feel off balance and somewhat cranky and tired this month. If this should happen, get rest and stay quiet. Remember, tomorrow is another day. Take baths, swim, and be kind to yourself. Just rest this month. This year, the South energy is about change and mastery of your karma.

NORTH OF THE HOME– Rat

The North facing home and the Rat this month will have the good fortune of wealth and romance. Place 4 bamboos for academic achievement. Place pink peony flowers or a pair of Mandarin ducks for romantic luck. Place running water with citrine stones in the North for prosperity and windfall luck. Make sure this space is well lit. Place the infinity symbol in this area to remind you of your never-ending supply of wealth, health and happiness.

SOUTHWEST OF THE HOME – Sheep and Monkey

The Southwest, Woman, Sheep and Monkey may feel ‘off’ this month. Remove all fire energy from this sector and add extra metal. Keep this sector quiet!! Place a blue detergent/salt/water combo in the Southwest of the home, room, or office to stabilize energy. This month the Sheep and Monkey may wish to just relax and lay low. Take no gambling or emotional risks. You may place extra salt in this sector to absorb positive ions and stabilize energy. Place any of the protectors: fu dogs, chi luns, Kuan Kung, coin sword, protection amulets, etc. in this area.

EAST OF THE HOME– Rabbit

The East this month may receive an unexpected windfall with the combination of the HoTu numbers 1/6, which bring balance, combining to form water or wealth. Place 12 gold coins in this area to double your windfall. Running water may be used in this area to activate the water energy. Do a brief mediation visualizing ideas to bring prosperity to your front door. Ask your mind to create for you a plan to follow to bring wealth into your life. Then listen and act upon it.

SOUTHEAST OF THE HOME – Snake and Dragon

The Snake and Dragon and the Southeast facing home have a HoTu combo of 2/7 in their sector this month. Normally this brings bad luck, but this combination comes together to form. Fire energy is good for closing deals or beginning new projects, which may mean money windfalls, and past debt repayment out of the blue. Place crystal jewels or crystal balls or raw crystals in the Southeast for mental clarity.

The Dragon, Snake and areas of the Southeast must watch their health all year. The Snake and Dragon may wish to take extra care to get plenty of sleep, eat right, exercise to release emotions, and not burn the candle at both ends. Place a wu-lou or metal in this area to weigh down the energy. The Snake and Dragon may bathe with Epsom salts and lavender or swim to keep the body healthy. Drink plenty of water. If you wish, you can drink a Himalayan salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time. You may also wish to counter measure by placing a blue detergent/salt/water combo in this sector, as well.

Many tell me the aspects overwhelm them. Go back, read them, and take one direction at a time and just work with it. Don’t panic. Do the adjustments at your leisure or only do the directions you feel are a problem. Eat the elephant one bite at a time. Pretty soon, you will get it and eat the whole elephant!! Have a fantastic month. Peace be with you!!

 

 

Feng Shui Aspects for July 2015

Intro to the Monthly Aspects: Your home is an extension of your mind and your thoughts create your home. Does your home support your needs—emotionally, financially, physically, spiritually, and mentally? This monthly Feng Shui aspect feature will help you to make those assessments. All you have to do is read and place the objects appropriately and go about your month.

The Four-Pillar Eastern astrology and the Flying Stars method of Feng Shui is used to determine how the ener­gies of the Earth and its directions from different time periods affect your lives and well-being. The Flying Stars Feng Shui, a method thousands of years old, is based on ancient calculations of astronomy, navigation, and mathematics. The Flying Stars method covers the natal or birth stars of your home; the annual flying stars that change each year with the Chinese New Year; and the monthly flying stars, which change monthly.

Disclaimer: All aspects and predictions of the flying stars are for entertainment purposes only and should not be used in the place of medical care if you should need it.

 The adjustments may be placed in the directional sectors of the property, home, office, or desk.

 Since the year is half over, I recommend a cleanse of your home. The first half of the year, you have been changing and moving forward and depositing a no longer needed energy. Open your doors and windows and use a chime, smudge, toning bowl and/or essential oil of orange and frankincense to clear the energy. Go through each room. Open the windows and use the chimes or smudge or spray to cleanse each corner and the middle of the room…floor and ceiling. Plan on taking your time and really focusing on removing the old and re-depositing the new energy. Get clear on your goals and intentions and what you are clearing from your life that no longer aligns with those goals.

At the end of the cleanse place a glass bowl or vase of salt and a glass bowl or vase of water in the four corners of your home on the inside of the house. At the front door place a salt line to keep all negativity from entering your home and place a vase of water on the left and right side of the door. You may place fresh flowers in the vase. Change the water daily. At the end of 9 days, throw away the salt and the water. Remove the salt line. Re-chime your home. Re-spray with a sweet smelling essential oil or sweet grass smudge. Next say a prayer of thank you for all you have and the new direction your guides will deliver you too. It is done!!

This July month has Goddess energy of 3/6/9 combos in the Southwest, Center, and the Northeast of the home. These directions are the fortune and indirect fortune directions for the period eight of flying stars feng shui. Place a Golden Goddess or a women powered deity of your choice on a Gold cloth in the one or all of these areas to bring forth a nurturing supporting energy.

This month, the fire star flies to the Center of the ba-gua/energy map bringing with it a possible expansion of tension and conflict. Place a Golden Goddess in the center so the nurturing energy will prevail.

This added fire to the center of the map might cause extreme heat conditions around the globe either in the way of actual fires, extreme heat, or a clashing of anger emotions erupting into conflict. This month, do not place actual fire in the center of your home such as candles, fireplaces, or burning of any kind. The fire danger is high.

Keep the center of your home well lit and add clear raw crystals or smooth crystal balls to the center of your home this month if you are feeling in conflict. The crystals will help you feel mentally clearer, grounded, and anchored. Be aware of nasty tempers and realize they too will pass.

If your home feels too hot, place water around the home. Drink plenty of water and keep the body energy rested. Heat causes fatigue. If you wish, you can do a Himalayan Salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan Salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time. Consult your doctor if you have any questions about your health.

This month could be a good month for career changes and promotions in the Northwest. Place a still bowl of water in the Northwest for career luck. This area should already have 4 bamboos for academic achievement. The two together can increase a chance of promotion and money coming to you. Place 6 coins in this area as well to energize the water energy. The Dog and Pig should especially take advantage of this energy.

Take no unnecessary risks in the West this month. Place a glass of 1/3 water, 1/3 sea salt, and 1/3 blue detergent in the West this month. Keep the West quiet and calm. The Rooster must watch his health this month. Place a wu-lou or Gold Metal Rooster in this area to weigh down the energy. Take Epsom salts with lavender baths or swim to keep the body healthy. Drink plenty of water. If you wish, you can do a Himalayan Salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan Salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time. Consult your doctor if you have any questions about your health.

This month the Northeast area of the home and the Tiger and Ox may feel conflicted this month about change. If your office or bedroom is in the Northeast you may feel internal conflict regarding personal and business relationships. Place a Red Buddha in the Northeast and place 6 Gold coins in this area to offset business conflicts. Place a Gold Rooster on your desk to stop backstabbing and politicking. However, the power star is in your corner so there is a chance of speculative luck. Activate with small still water…turtle, three legged frog, and/or fish.

This month—again– keep the South calm. The South facing home or South sector of your home may feel off balance again this month. Put blue flowers or still water at your front door on the left side looking out. Keep lighting low and be careful with fire. Put 1/3 salt, 1/3 water, and 1/3 blue detergent in a bowl and place it in the South. Place smooth clear crystal balls in this area for smooth sailing. Any work done in this area must be checked and double-checked for mistakes. Check over all legal documents—especially Horse people. The Horse may feel off balance and somewhat melancholy and tired this month. If this should happen, get rest and stay quiet. Remember: Tomorrow in another day. Take baths, swim, and be kind to yourself. This month…just rest. This year, the South energy is about change and mastery of your karma.

Put a bowl of sea salt in the North facing home this month to absorb any negativity. Rat people need to slow down and watch their health this month. Get your rest. Too much is going on financially, emotionally, and physically. Place extra water in this sector to absorb positive ions and stabilize energy. To protect money place any of the protectors, fu dogs, chi luns, Kuan Kung, coin sword, protection amulets, etc. in this area.

The Southwest this month may receive an unexpected windfall with the combo of the expansion star and the power star entering the place of the Sheep and Monkey. Place 12 Gold coins in this area to double your windfall. Still water may be used in this area to cool metal/fire combo. Do a brief mediation visualizing ideas to bring prosperity to your front door. Ask your mind to create you a plan to follow to bring wealth into your life. Then listen and act upon it.

To stabilize career energy, place a blue detergent/Salt/Water Combo in the East of the home, room, or office. If you have a blue elephant or rhinoceros, set it in this area to protect the area as well. You may also set black or blue fu-dogs. Remove all fire or red energy. This is a time of clearing past karma.

The Snake and Dragon and the Southeast Facing home have the sum of ten combo in their sector this month, which can mean money windfalls, and past debt repayment out of the blue. After a challenging last month, this will be a welcoming change. Place crystal jewels or crystal balls or raw crystals in the Southeast this month in increments of eight. Place the infinity symbol in this area to remain you of your never-ending supply of wealth, health and happiness.

The Dragon, Snake and areas of the Southeast must watch their health all year. The Snake and Dragon may wish to take extra care to get plenty of sleep, eat right, exercise to release emotions, and not burn the candle at both ends. Place a wu-lou or metal in this area to weigh down the energy. The Snake and Dragon may take Epsom salts with lavender baths or swim to keep the body healthy. Drink plenty of water. If you wish, you can do a Himalayan Salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan Salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time.

Many tell me the aspects overwhelm them. Go back, read them, and take one directions at a time and just work with it. Don’t panic. Do the adjustments at your leisure or only do the directions you feel are a problem. Eat the elephant one bite at a time. Pretty soon, you will get it and eat the whole elephant!! Have a fantastic month. Peace be with you!!

EASY TO DO Flying Stars Aspects Blog  for   your life, home,  and business.

Your home is an extension of your mind and your thoughts create your home. Does your home support your needs—emotionally, financially, physically, spiritually, and mentally? This monthly Feng Shui aspect feature will help you to make those assessments. All you have to do is read and place the objects appropriately and go about your month.

Overall Feng Shui means wind and water in Mandarin Chinese and is the art of placement within your home, business, or environment. Feng Shui knowledge can help you to understand how that which is seen and unseen, can affect your reality. We live in a world of symbology and branding. Everything the mind’s eye sees is a message to the subconscious mind and the subconscious mind will unconsciously react in a positive or negative way. On a spiritual level, feng shui knowledge can help you to harness and manifest the “power of thought or the spoken word.” Your thoughts are powerful and form and affect your very being. When applied appropriately, this esoteric or mystical feng shui can change your life.

The Four-Pillar Eastern astrology and the Flying Stars method of Feng Shui is used to determine how the ener­gies of the Earth and its directions from different time periods affect your lives and well-being. The Flying Stars Feng Shui, a method thousands of years old, is based on ancient calculations of astronomy, navigation, and mathematics. The Flying Stars method covers the natal or birth stars of your home; the annual flying stars that change each year with the Chinese New Year; and the monthly flying stars, which change monthly.

In this monthly blog we will explore the monthly flying stars technique. This technique is easy and focuses on the aspects of the monthly flying stars, their interaction with the annual stars, the sectors they fly into each year, and their effect on your life.

I hope you enjoy our new addition. We would like feedback on your ideas of how to improve our newsletter each month!!

Feng Shui Aspects for June 2015

Disclaimer: All aspects and predictions of the flying stars are for entertainment purposes only and should not be used in the place of medical care if you should need it.

 The adjustments may be placed in the directional sectors of the property, home, office, or desk.

This month of June 2015, the stars line up to make this a somewhat unpredictable month. The West, South, Southwest, and Southeast are the directions to keep an eye on for instable energies. The East, Northeast, and North are very auspicious and the Northwest is somewhat neutral. This month may feel like a balancing act but just remember—this too shall pass. Each sector has a yin and yang or negative and positive quality. Which one you feed will be the one that thrives. Always feed the positive and dissect the negative into a positive.

The Tai chi turns each day as well as monthly. When an auspicious daystar flies into the day, it will shift that monthly energy that appears funky!! Some sectors will definitely feel better than others. Start journaling and gauging your days.

This month the water star flies to the Center of the ba-gua/energy map– cleansing and purifying the energy of the environment. This could bring added rain and more water on a universal level. The extra water can also make the earth unstable and we may see more flooding, landslides, and maybe earthquakes. The water will bring added strength to the annual star of conflict so it is important to balance this wood/water/earth energy with more earth. Add extra clear raw crystals to the center of your home this month if you feel you are walking on shaky ground. The crystals will help you feel mentally clearer, grounded, and anchored.

This month could be a good month for career changes and promotions. For some, there may be some forced changes centering around job prospects but don’t panic. Change is scary, but sometimes very good and needed. Everything happens for a reason. This month in the center of your home, place still water to absorb any negative energy and in addition, a red Buddha or red smooth crystal to the center of the home for smooth business and personal transitions. Expect some endings and awesome beginnings!!

In the Northwest this month, remove all objects that resemble fire and keep lighting minimal. The Pig and Dog may wish to take extra care to get plenty of sleep and not burn the candle at both ends. Take no unnecessary risks in the Northwest this month. Keep the Northwest quiet and calm. Place a wu-lou or metal in this area to weigh down the energy. You may add 4 bamboos in water for academic achievement. The Northwest is a great place to write, edit, or create this month.

This month the Rooster people and the West of home may feel out of sorts. If your office or bedroom is in the West you may feel internal conflict regarding personal and business relationships. Place a Golden Rooster in the West this month with the bowl of sea salt water. This will stabilize that energy and help absorb the conflict. Because the Rooster is a bird of strength, self-promotion, and opportunity, the symbology of the Rooster counters backstabbing, politicking, and conflict through self-assurance. This month use this sector to focus on resolving those areas of your life not working in your best interest.

The Northeast of the home is a very strong area this month with achievement meeting up with power. Place 6 Chinese coins in the Northeast for the year. Romantic luck is high. Place pink peonies or mandarin ducks in this area to find that special feeling. The Tiger and Ox can enjoy a good month with good things coming their way. However, remember….having power is tough …choose wisely.

This month keep the South calm. The South facing home or South sector of your home may feel off balance this month. Put blue flowers or still water at your front door on the left side looking out. Keep lighting low and be careful with fire. Put 1/3 salt, 1/3 water, and 1/3 blue detergent in a bowl and place it in the South. Place smooth clear crystal balls in this area for smooth sailing. Any work done in this area must be checked and double-checked for mistakes. Check over all legal documents—especially Horse people. The Horse may feel off balance and somewhat melancholy and tired this month. If this should happen, get rest and stay quiet. Remember: Tomorrow in another day. Take baths, swim, and be kind to yourself. This month…just rest.

The North facing home and Rat people are blessed with good fortune this month. Place with 6 gold coins or Chinese coins and 8 pieces of Citrine stones in the North. Do a brief mediation visualizing ideas to bring prosperity to your front door. Ask your mind to create you a plan to follow to bring wealth into your life. Then listen and act upon it. Don’t procrastinate. Strike while the iron is hot!!

The Southwest in the month of June is complicated by a fire/metal clash. This month women need to watch their health and avoid becoming overloaded. Drink plenty of water and rest when exhausted to avoid a serious affliction. To stabilize this energy place your blue detergent/Salt/Water Combo in the Southwest of the home, room, or office. If you have a blue elephant or rhinoceros, set it in this area to protect the area as well. You may also set black or blue fu-dogs. Remove all fire or red energy. Also place a rooster to offset any gossiping and unfair attacking from your frienemies!! Allow the Southwest of the home to lay low this month. The Sheep and Monkey and Women must take rest when tired. This is a time of clearing past karma.

The East is honored with a fortune as well as the wealth star and career star meet up in the family sector of the ba-gua or energy map. Place a moving or still fountain with 8 citrine stones in the East. You may also place a picture of your family need the fountain for familial good fortune.

The Snake and Dragon and the Southeast Facing home must watch their health this month. The Snake and Dragon may wish to take extra care to get plenty of sleep, eat right, exercise to release emotions, and not burn the candle at both ends. Take no unnecessary risks in the Southeast this month. Place a wu-lou or metal in this area to weigh down the energy. Emotions may run high this month. Place smooth round crystal balls in the Southeast to distort the energy. Take Epsom salts with lavender baths or swim to keep the body healthy. Drink plenty of water. If you wish, you can do a Himalayan Salt cleanse with ½ tsp. of Himalayan Salt in 8 oz. of water. This is a spiritual cleanse for the soul. Just relax and enjoy the down time.

Many tell me the aspects overwhelm them. Go back, read them, and take one directions at a time and just work with it. Don’t panic. Do the adjustments at your leisure or only do the directions you feel are a problem. Eat the elephant one bite at a time. Pretty soon, you will get it and eat the whole elephant!! Have a fantastic month. Peace be with you!!

Wow, what is going on with all the plane crashes???

As most of you know, I author each year a Chinese Prophecy book. In this year’s book, The Thunder Year of the Stallion, as I lined up the stars I wrote:

“Due to the Yang Wood nature influence of the Horse, this year we may see natural disasters caused by high winds. We may see more tornados, hurricanes, and wild Fire fueled by wind. Since the wind is of the sky, we may hear more rumblings coming from the sky—sonic booms, meteors, rockets, planes crashes, thunder storms, etc” (Page 21).

Excerpt from page 36

“This year on the world map, the #7 of Violence rests over Russia, Korea, and China and the #5 of Instability looms over the United States. We may see conflict arise between those regions this year. The #6 also is located over the lower United States and Washinton DC. This aspect could promote a posturing of power, as well, with other countries. We may also see an increase in the ‘power of the people’ this year, as people realize they do have some say within their life. The Latin American regions will also see an increase in authority and recognition this year. The European nations may also prosper with the Expansion #9 star in their favor this year. There may be an outbreak of stomach and respirtory illness in the lower Asian and Upper Australia regions.”

These predictions have come to pass.

When you can line up the flying stars feng shui with the animal influences you can easily read the patterns of the universe.

The 2014-The Thunder Year of the Stallion is available on Amazon, get your copy today!

Feng Shui Aspects for January 2014

Disclaimer: All aspects and predictions of the flying stars are for fun and entertainment purposes only and should not be used in the place of medical care if you should need it. The monthly adjustments, in addition to the annual flying stars, should be placed in the directional sectors of the property, home, office, or desk.

2014 The Thunder Year of the Stallion eBook is available at www.maryshurtleff.com. Hard copies available after the 7th.

Today, January 1st is the first New Moon of the Year!! Yippee…all sorts of new opportunities abound today. Place a jar of water in the sun today for an hour to absorb the NEW energy of the year. Then drink the water as a sign of you are accepting the new as you let go of the old.

Today, January 1st, 2014, the #9 star of expansion flies to the center of the ba-gua meeting with the annual star #5 star of instability still located in the center of the ba-gua, we may still feel a lot of earth quaking and instability in our lifestyles and weather throughout this month until the Chinese New Year on the 30th of January, EST.

The Female Water Snake has been sashaying out, but she has left much snow and cold as predicted last month in my Feng Shui aspects and a trail of destruction with her sidewinding tail. Remember, in December, I said….

The #1 of water and career flew to the center of the ba-gua bringing with it lots of rain and snow over the earth. Expect more rain, snow and cold this month. According to the I-Ching, the water over earth is the sign of obstruction in the gorge. A blocking energy. This month one may feel like Mercury is in retrograde with obstacles and obstructions blocking progress. This month, take it easy. Relax and just go with the flow.

Last month was a slow tough month weather wise and personal wise for many. When one can read the energy of the flying stars, one can prepare for the energy.

To finish off the year and stabilize any unpredictability in your home this year, keep beautiful raw clear crystals in the center of the home to remind you of the third eye energy and a knowing of what to do in time of trouble. The clear crystal will also bring clearer energy to the unstable energy of the Yellow star. The crystal energy will brighten the center of your home with hope and optimism and resonate a rainbow of light within the Yellow star, breaking down its harsh energy. Make sure your salt water is in place in the center of your home to cool and offset harsh energy.

It is always an excellent practice to have a huge crystal chandelier of some kind hanging in the center of your home always to disperse energy through out the house. The crystals also help to slow energy that may be flying out the windows and the doors.

The Ho-Tu numbers of 1/6 are located in the NW this month bringing genius planning to a mundane situation. Use water and metal to activate. Pay attention to intuition this month in the NW of your home. Place a bowl of water with 6 coins in the NW of the home. Water symbolizes money flowing to you. The #6 star of power and authority will help with business promotions and visibility this month. This is especially good for Dog and Pig people.

The #2 of illness and emotions flies to the West of the home. Rooster and those with a West front door or bedroom need to safeguard their health this month. You may see an illness of the lungs or air born bacteria. Take precaution. Wash your hands regularly. Eat only good, healthy food. If food looks questionable, throw it out. Don’t push the envelope with alcohol or drugs. Drink plenty of liquids. Get your rest and meditate when possible. Stay positive and know it will pass. Place a metal wu lou in the West to press down the earth energy of the #2. Since the annual star #7 of instability is still located in the West place a blue detergent salt water cure in the West to offset all energy. SAFEGUARD health in the West this month. However, the 2/7 Ho-Tu of knowledge resides in the West this month, place a clear crystal and some metal in the West for clarity and intuition. Meditate in the West and listen to your inner voice.

The #3 conflict star flies to the NE possibly bringing delays and chaos to the Tiger, Ox, and NE facing homes. Chaos can be a good. It makes you move and shake and make more appropriate decisions. However, the Ho-Tu combination of 3/8 enters this space this month putting the ball in your court. Place smooth crystal balls for clarity during conflict. Because of their ear size, elephants symbolize listening and clear communication, place an elephant figure on his side with his ear to the ground to help you listen and communicate appropriately. Place your running water with 8 pieces of citrine for wealth luck. You may come out of this month, ahead of the game if you play your cards right!!

The #4 Romance star flies to the South this month bringing academic opportunities to those with South facing homes. Place white peonies and pale pink quartz in the South this month for Romance. For academic success place 4 bamboos in water. Place pink wish fulfilling crystals in the South this month for energizing love and family. The Ho-Tu 4/9 resides in the South this month bringing strength in numbers and using close associates to make progress. Take advantage of this area to bring in mentors or investors to help you out.

The #5 of instability flies into the North this month bringing stress to the Rat and the North Facing homes. Place salt water cure in the North to protect home. Also add extra metal to this sector to press down the earth energy. This month the Rat and North facing homes should lay low and not make any earth shattering decisions. Use the North front door as less as possible this month.
Power and Authority flies to the SW this month and brings luck to the Sheep and Monkey and SW facing homes. Place 6 mandarin or ‘cutie’ oranges in the SW symbolizing balls of gold, as well as good health.
The monthly #7 of legal conflict flies to the East this month. Remove all metal wind chimes in the East this month. All Rabbits and East facing homes need to pay attention to all paperwork they are signing. There could be conflicts and delays arising. Place the blue note for a peaceful transition of paperwork as well as the blue detergent in the East.
The Southeast facing houses, Dragon, and Snake may see increases in Money coming this month. Place still water and citrine stones in the Southeast this month.

This month is the beginning of the Chinese New Year on January 30th as the Thunder Year of the Stallion arrives. It will prove to be a very interesting year. The Snake swept the ground with her tail and cleared the path for the brilliant stallion to arrive, Get your books today and find out your yearly fortune!! www.maryshurtleff.com.
