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 December

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 will be available next week. You can pre-order on www.maryshurtleff.com starting Friday, 13, 2014.

On December 3rd of 2013, the #1 star 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. For career help this month, place a bowl of water in the center of the home. Water symbolizes money flowing to you.

With the annual star #5 star of instability still located in the center of the ba-gua we may still feel lot of earth quaking and instability in our lifestyles and weather throughout the year. To stabilize any unpredictability in your home this year, place 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.

The #2 of illness and emotions flies to the NW of the home. Patriarchs or head of household, pig and dog people, those with a NW 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.

The #3 conflict star flies to the West bringing opposing ideas to the Rooster and West facing homes. Chaos can be a good. It makes you move and shake and make more appropriate decisions. 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. 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.

The #4 Romance star flies to the Northeast in December bringing romance to the Ox and Tiger and Northeast facing homes. Place white peonies and pale pink quartz in the NE this month. For academic success place 4 bamboos in water. Place pink wish fulfilling crystals in the NE this month for energizing love and family.

The #5 of instability flies into the South this month bringing stress to the Horse and South Facing homes. Place salt water cure in the South to protect home. This month the Horse and South facing homes should lay low and not make any earth shattering decisions. Use the front door as less as possible this month. Mediate or pray and go with the flow of what the heart says.
Power and Authority fly to the North this month and brings luck to the already lucky Rat and North facing homes. The North is one of the luckiest sectors of your home this month. Place gold and a water fountain in the North this month for Money recognition. This month, career advancement for the Rat or North facing home may be made.
The monthly #7 of legal conflict flies to the SW of women this month. Remove all metal wind chimes in the SW this month. The SW earth energy may smother some of the metal conflict. Place extra earth and heavy objects this month in the SW to tamp down the instability. Also be careful of your health in the SW of the home. Keep this area as quiet as possible, no loud noises or excessive movement. SHHHHH……
The Rabbit and East facing houses may see increases in Money coming this month. Place water and citrine stones in the East this month. Since it is Christmas, place your Christmas tree or a Tree of Life in the East to promote family. Keep this area brightly lit with Christmas tree lights that twinkle. The Ho Tu combination of the 3/8 brings luck and happiness to this area. Hang a combination of 3 and 8 in this space this month.

Victory and celebration flies to Southeast of Dragon and Snake this month. The 4/9 Ho Tu combo also brings romance, luck, and happiness to the Dragon and Snake and the SE facing house or bedroom. The Southeast is the place to try to get pregnant this month. For Romance place pink peony flowers and rose quartz. Also place 4 bamboos for academic luck and recognition. Recognition is in the stars for the arts this month. Hang a combination of 4 and 9 in this area this month.

Christmas Rituals using the Elements of Feng Shui

This month I had also added some hints for Christmas design. Holidays are a great time to celebrate as well as take the opportunity to the clear the old from your life out and start all over again for the New Year. Prepare your house for Christmas by doing a little holiday ritual for Earth and Heaven Luck to enter your home and life.

Start your ritual between the New Moon and the Full Moon of the moon. Each day, chose an element and place it within your home with a prayer for good fortune and health coming to your home and all who enter there. Leave your elements in place until after the Chinese New Year. This allows the energy to build and flow. After the Chinese New Year you can replace or renew the ritual for another 12 days.
Start your ritual preparation with a thorough house cleanings getting rid of all old clutter, boxes, items that you no longer need. This is a good time to donate to a homeless shelter or Salvation Army. Be brave and clear it out.
Before decorating, remove all objects to be stored until after Christmas and a create open space for the holiday decorations. Keep the holiday in a natural motif with lots of wood energy.
Outdoor lights may be hung along the pathway and at your front door to draw energy to the front door. Melodic sounding wind chimes or ornaments may be placed at your front door to resonate energy coming into the home. (Unless you have a negative energy star at your front door…than scrap the windchimes!!)
Choose colors and a Christmas theme that are attractive to you. Brighter colors lift energy, muted colors calm energy. Design items should be in pairs or multiples of 3, 5, and 7. Use colorful ornaments, lights, and icicles to lift energy.
Use power strips instead of extension cords. Visible electrical cords are draining and symbolize too much going on which can cause anxiety and a feeling of being spread too thin. Plugged into TOO much!!!
Decorate your bathroom with cheerful holiday towels and scented soap. Make the bathroom as inviting as possible. When guests wash their hands in your bathroom it makes them feel prosperous and helps to bring money to your home.
For peace of mind and serenity, place a pot of oranges and apples in water on the stove and simmer through the holiday season. Also, serve a good spiced wine. Mulling spices are available at most fine grocery stores. This yummy warm beverage gives feeling of peace and comfort.
Play Christmas music in your home to set the stage for peace, joy, and giving. Once you have cleared your home and set the stage, you are ready to place the first element.

First day of Christmas Ritual-Water Element- Renewing and Cleansing-Bringer of Life.


Place water at your front door, either in the form of a fountain or still water, to renew and cleanse all energy coming into the home. Place orange and frankincense oil in the fountain or water. Around or under the water feature, place object or photos of all things, you wish to renew or heal the coming holiday season and year. Place a prayer with the water for healthy, wealth, and happiness connection for all family members and friends.
Second day of Christmas Ritual-Wood Element-Growth and Creativity:


Place your Christmas tree and garland. If you have already placed your tree, you may place a Poinsettia place or fresh flowers this day. The beautiful wrapping paper also is synonymous with the Wood element. Light the tree to bring in the opportunity for new growth and creativity. If you do not celebrate the Christmas season, you can still put up a tree symbolizing something in your life of great importance and decorate it appropriately. Rename it _______________ Tree.
Third day of Christmas Ritual-Fire Element-Passion and Transformation


The Christmas tree lights are the best form of fire energy at Christmas time. In addition, create an alter which consists of frankincense and myrrh bulk incense and real gold in the center of your home. Real Gold is preferred to symbolic gold, to symbolize wealth. You may also place a Buddha, Jesus, Nativity Scene, or other spiritual deities on your alter to balance the energy of the home with peace and unconditional love. You may also add rice, salt, and berries to the alter if you so desire for abundance. Salt is used to clear all negative energy.
Place a white candle of Spirit on the alter. Place a smaller candle symbolizing all members of the family or friends who you wish to honor. Spray the essential oil of cinnamon, myrrh, and frankincense around the entire home to clear the home. Light the candle and say a prayer, while visualizing your desires for all. Leave the alter through the holiday season, replacing the candles as needed. Be extremely careful of all fire dangers. Electric candles can be substituted if small children or animals present a danger.
You may also burn Cinnamon or Bayberry candles in your Helpful People (NW corner) or Wealth area (SE corner) to bring prosperity to you, your family and all who visit. Candles need only burn for an hour or two each day for great results.
Fourth day of Christmas Ritual- Earth Element-Grounding and Security


Place sea salt or rock salt in small saucers in each corner of your home.
Using the ousting mudra (flicking the middle finger against your thumb in an outward motion) command all negative energies and spirits that no longer serve the household to depart, while perceiving in your mind’s eye ensuing peace.
–After nine days throw the saucer contents to the wind, from each corner of your property and replace with new salt. Do this every nine days until the Chinese New Year, knowing that you have established a strong foundation for the future.
Fifth day of Christmas Ritual-Metal Element-Wisdom, Discipline and Logic-Closing Metal


Metal is symbolically the end of a cycle–in the life cycle the body dries up and gets stiff as it ages. Age is associated with Wisdom. Consciously choose rocks, stones, natural crystals, gems or Chinese coins that speak to you and help to open your pathways to wisdom. These stones contain the electromagnetic energy of the earth. Place your chosen metals in each corner of your property (or apartment), with a spoken personal affirmation to create a blessed environment. Leave the objects to hold and solidify the strong sacred energy you’ve declared, for months to come.
May you have a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you next year.

As the year 2013 and the Female Water Snake begin slithering in, it became the undoing of many as they were asked to shed their old ways and skin and adopt new ways.

Endings and beginnings, death and rebirth are difficult and cause one to restructure belief systems and start anew.

New Beginning are often disguised as painful ending~~ Lao Tzu

The Year 2013 was definitely a year of explosive beginnings. On February 12th right after the Pope Benedict announced his resignation, the Vatican was struck by lightening, not once but twice. Jorge Mario Bergoglio would then be elected to be the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church. Bergoglio picked the papal name of Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. Pope Francis is the first Jesuit Pope and the first pope from South America. He is a humble man who through the year has changed protocol within Vatican City.

Politically in 2013, we have seen violent upheavals in the Middle East and Syria, with Russia and China joining forces against the United States. We witnessed turmoil in Egypt and Turkey with violent rioting that left many dead and a government unstable. North Korea and Kim Jong-Un reared his head and threatened attacks against United States bases. There were so much violence worldwide and many threats of war and the overthrowing of governments last year that even the press had a hard time keeping up. For the rest of the story….

http://anniejenningspr.com/jenningswire/metaphysics/the-winding-down-of-the-female-water-snake-what-does-the-rest-of-the-year-hold/

Do you have the Dizzys this Month~~ It could be the Female Water Snake

Do you have the feeling of Head pressure, ringing in the ears, or the ‘Dizzys’ this month?

Snake energy is at its highest this month. This year the kundalini in the spine is active. The Snake controls the kundalini and pineal gland. It is an awakening of the parts of spine and the brain that have laid dormant. The pineal gland is especially busy this year opening to new dimensions. So of course, all feels off balance and dizzy. To help offset this effect drink lots of water and eat bananas.

This year it is especially important to do balancing exercises and strengthen the legs and feet. The snake has no feet so the feet don’t feel like they are grounded this year. Carry stones in your pockets to literally connect you to the earth. This is a year of transformation on all levels of mind, body, spirit.

I have been telling people not to panic, next year’s wood horse will feel more grounded. We will have roots. This year, go with the shifts~~ journal and pay attention what the inner voices are telling you to do. (It is easier to go with the flow than to fight it. The flow will win in the end so ‘let go’ to begin with)

Intuition is very high this year and bringing much anxiety to many because they aren’t sure if it is their thoughts or someone else’s. Just breathe through it. Close your eyes, slow your breathing.

I have had so many bouts with the ‘dizzys’ and ringing in my ears. Also people may experience more headaches, plugged feeling in the ears, and neck pain. Of course if you are concerned, go to your health care provider. (My disclaimer)

The good news is..the energy is highest this month and should dissipate each month now. It has been building since May to this peak. By November we may start feeling somewhat normal again. Hope this helps.

All this is explained in my book..The Female Water Snake: 2013 Year of Transformation. My stock is being sold off at half price for $8.50. To order your copy, go to www.maryshurtleff.com

Feng Shui Aspects for June and July 2013

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.

The 2013 Water Snake e-books are available at www.maryshurtleff.com. This year the Snake Book is available at www.amazon.com.

Wow, what a whirlwind year this has been for me!! The year of transformation is an understatement. I sold my primary home in Utah and I am now living in my RV until September when I will move to my condo in Mesquite. We cannot get into our new primary home until January, so we are in a state of limbo with all my ‘stuff’ in storage. Our Utah house sold in April in just a day after listing and we closed on it today, June 17th–Fast and in sync with the universe. Everything went smoothly. Thank you Universe.

Since June is almost gone, I am going to highlight only what you may want to do for the rest of the month. June is a Mr. Toad’s wild ride. The flying stars line up with either really good energy or somewhat unstable energy.

In June, the 5&7 meet up in the center of the home, the 5&3 meet up in the East, and 7&9 meet up in the West for a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. All you have to do for the rest of June is place a jar of blue salt water detergent in the center, East, and West of the home as described in the Female Water Snake book. Be careful of extremities injuries for the rest of the month. There is an aspect of injury.

The NW and NE are wealth sectors in June–place water and 8 citrine stones in the NW and/or NE of the home or office.

Place a red crystal or red Mandela in the North, South, Southwest, and Southeast to offset any lingering bad chi mon of the unstable combination of stars.

July Aspects:

With that said, ….let’s move on the July combo flying stars and stripes forever!! This month is the 4th of July so take a moment and be proud to be an American if you live in America. Thank your soldiers for their will to give you the right of free speech and movement. For my international subscribers, also say a prayer of thanks for your freedom and safety.

The energy of July begins on the first New Moon of the month around July 8th. With the annual star #5 star of instability located in the center of the ba-gua all through this year, we may still feel lot of earth quaking and instability in our lifestyles and weather throughout the year. To stabilize any unpredictability in your home this year, place 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. May sure your salt water is in place in the center of your home to cool and offset harsh energy.

In July, place 6 metal coins in the center of the home to help you come out ahead during conflict. This month we may see clashes within religion, government, and personal institutions on a universal level. The metal of heaven energy may cause some clashing in the heavens in the form of thunderstorms and rain and wind. Stay diligent and safe.

The instability star flies to the NW bringing chaos the Pig and Dog and NW facing homes. Chaos is good. It makes you move and shake and make new more appropriate decisions. Karma and Personal Growth aspects in the NW this month may bring instability to all aspects of our lives. Be careful of striking out too quickly this month. You may place peacock feathers in this area to symbolize protecting eyes. Place a clear purple crystal or raw clear crystal in this area to promote clear thinking. Place the blue detergent salt water in NW of your home or office this month.

Wealth star flies to the West in July bringing new career opportunities to the Rooster and West facing homes. With the #7 annual star in the West this year, read all contracts thoroughly and watch for inconsistencies in the contract and verbal agreements. Place blue colored water with citrine stones in the West to enhance wealth prospects.

Increased money and business promotions fly to the NE this month bringing luck to the Ox, Tiger, and NE homes. Place extra lighting in the NE of your home or office next to your water fountain and citrine stones.

Career energy and promotions fly to the South in July and energizes the Horse and South facing homes. Place extra water in the South this month to activate the water energy.

The monthly #2 of illness and emotions fly to the North in July. The water energy of the North can dampen the earth energy of the #2 Earth star. Place a metal wind chime in the North to enhance the energy of the North. Meditate daily, exercise at least 15 minutes, get your rest, and eat right. That is the key to good mental and physical health. Place a metal wu-lou, cobalt blue crystal, or Tree of life in the North of your home this month to protect your health.
Place a red crystal, red apple, or red Buddha in the SW of your home or office of your home this month to calm any conflict, which may arise. Place a metal wu-lou, cobalt blue crystal, protection sigil, or Tree of life in the SW of your home this month to protect your health.

The Lucky Green Star of Literary Success and Romance flies to East meeting up with the Conflict Star. Place a wish fulfilling crystal in the East with 4 lucky bamboos to bring power and wealth to your writing skills. Children may study in this area this month for increased ability. Place red and/or pink peonies and rose quartz in the East for Romantic luck. Also place a pair of birds to promote longevity and healthy life. This could be a good spot to make babies this month with the big bang spark and the romance star.

Place Salt Water Cure or Salt Lamp in the Southeast of your home this month to stabilize prosperity energy. Remove all excess fire energy this month. Because the universe speaks in signs and symbols, I recommend every person place the protection sigil decal on your body and in your car. You may also place Peacock Feathers in the SE to activate Kwan Yin energy for protection and mercy.

Have a fabulous month!! Live long and prosper!! I wish you much wealth, health, and happiness.

Feng Shui Aspects for May 2013

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.

Sorry this is late. My year has been chaotic. I have sold my house in Draper/ Salt Lake City area and we are moving to Mesquite, Nevada as a main residence. We must be out of our home by June 17th. We will eventually buy a smaller condo here in the valley, probably in the fall, but right now we are focused on getting out of the Draper home.

My home sold in a day. I listed it on the new moon and did a secret feng shui adjustment to help the sale. We listed it one day, got the offer the next day, and accepted it the third day. It was fast and the transformation has been an emotional on. I live and breathe feng shui. I do nothing without consulting the energy of the day and the how it interacts with my four pillar chart. I even plan travel on the good travel days for me. When one understands how feng shui energy of the day affects their inner feng shui chart you can adjust your environment to stay stable and somewhat upright!! Some days though are just destined to be sucky!!

The month of May starts out somewhat stable with the good earth of wealth helping to stabilize the unstable earth energy of the annual star. Put still water and citrine in the middle of your home this month for stabilizing and protecting your wealth.

With the annual star #5 star of instability located in the center of the ba-gua all this year we may still feel lot of earth quaking and instability in our lifestyles throughout the year; thus the Boston Marathon Bombing last month when the #5 was coupled with the expansion energy of the #9 bring forth this instability. The Boston Bombings occurred in a Fire Dragon month and on a Metal Pig Day. Fire and metal are volatile, clashing energies. The bombing occurred during the Wood Sheep hour, thus fueling the fire. READ these monthly aspects to know when to lay low and when to be visible, as they relate to your Eastern Astrology chart.

To offset any unpredictability in your home this year, place 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. May sure your salt water is in place in the center of your home to cool and offset harsh energy. The good news is the month of May will be a better month than April.

The expansion star flies to the NW bringing good luck and fortune to the Pig and Dog and NW facing homes. Everyone can place a ship with 6 gold coins or ingots on it in the NW of the home pointing towards the center of the home to activate this energy and symbolize your ship coming in. Make sure the ship is not sailing out a window or door. You may also place a water feature in the NW. The water and/or the ship will calm some of the fire/metal clash of this sector. We may see men’s egos going overboard this month with the authority star in the NW. Use water to calm ego is males in a household or business start clashing.
Career energy and promotions flies to the West and energizes the Rooster this month. Place extra water in the West this month to activate the energy. Place a Rooster in the West of the home to offset the competition and jealousy within the work place and home. Display a picture of a calm mountain to support and smother the #7 of retribution star.
Place a metal wu-lou, cobalt blue crystal, or Tree of life in the Northeast of your home this month to protect your health. Because the universe speaks in signs and symbols, I recommend every person place the protection sigil decal on your body and in your car. Make sure your water feature is clear and running smoothly in the NE of your home this year to promote wealth with harm to none. The NE sector of the home this month boasts the auspicious combination of 10 making it a sector to place objects and certificates for promotions and money. Very lucky for the Ox, Tiger, and NE facing homes this month.
Conflicts with money are possible for the Horse and South facing homes this month. Place a red crystal, red apple, or red Buddha in the South of your home this month with still water to stabilize the energy. The wood/ fire energy makes the energy high for conflict; use extra water to calm your body energy.

The Lucky Green Star of Literary Success and Romance flies to North meeting up with the Career Star. Success resides in the North and is an active sector for those in writing or the arts, Rat, or North facing home. This month you may see an increase in money for success in writing or direction and intelligence. Place a wish fulfilling crystal in the North with 4 lucky bamboos to bring power and wealth to your writing skills. Children may study in this area this month for increased ability. Place peonies and rose quartz in the North for Romantic luck. Also place a pair of birds to promote longevity and healthy life. This could be a good spot to make babies this month with the big bang spark and the romance star.

Place Salt Water Cure or Salt Lamp in the Southwest of your home this month to stabilize monthly energy for women. Women, Sheep and Monkey should take no risks with health or money. Remove all excess fire energy this month. Because the universe speaks in signs and symbols, I recommend every person place the protection sigil decal on your body and in your car. You may also place Peacock Feathers in the SW to activate Kwan Yin energy for protection and mercy.

Windfall luck and promotion flies to the East bringing luck to the Rabbit and East facing home. Everyone may place 6 coins in the East this month for money luck and fortune. You may also activate a ship with gold ingots in the North facing toward the center of the home.

Karma and Personal Growth aspects in the Southeast this month bring instability to all aspects of our lives. Be careful of striking out too quickly this month. Place a bowl of Blue Detergent in the Southeast of your home to offset this energy. You may also place peacock feathers in this area to symbolize protecting eyes. Place a clear purple crystal or raw clear crystal in this area to promote clear thinking.

Have a fabulous month!! Live long and prosper!! I wish you much wealth, health, and happiness.

Feng Shui Aspects for April 2013

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.

The 2013 Water Snake e-books are available at www.maryshurtleff.com. This year the Snake Book will be available at www.amazon.com very soon.

This month you may continue to feel the changing transition of the year. These last few months I have been hearing of so much dizziness, people passing out, eyes, ears, and nose problems. I have not been surprised. REMEMBER: The Snake rules the Kundalini energy and the pineal gland, which is located behind the forehead and between the ears.

The kundalini energy is energy asleep at the base of the spine—root chakra– waiting to be awakened by breath or movement. The root charka serves to bring us good health, a sense of well-being, and connects us to nature and the earth. As the energy of the root chakra travels up our spine, it must flow easily through the spleen, solar plexus, heart, throat, to the third eye chakra. When it finds an energy block it will work and spiral its way through the block releasing unharnessed and unrestrained energy into the nervous system causing muscle twitches, pains, and involuntary reactions throughout the body. All chakras will be affected.
Life may seem out of sorts and as the transformation takes place you may feel foreign in your body. Accept the transformation; don’t fight it. It is the shedding of the old and the imprinting of the new. Of course, always check with your health provider for any concerns you may have.

The energy of the heavens flows into our crown chakra and meet at the third eye chakra and travels on to the heart chakra bringing balance of love, compassion, and understanding. When one or more of these chakras are blocked, dis-ease or dis-comfort of nervous system will be experienced.

This year the snake is automatically awakening this Kundalini in everyone. This energy is so powerful and affects the nervous systems as it opens up your feelers—feelings. Many have no idea what to do with all this emotion so outbursts of anger may be the result. This Kundalini then goes to the pineal glands between the ears causing an increase in vibration, which literally knocks off the balance of the ears.

This year you will be hearing with your third ear or intuitive ear. You will hear things not being said. You will hear things that are not there. Sometimes it may seem as though your ears are humming because the vibration level has risen. You may feel dizzy or light headed. Some may even pass out.

As the vibrational level of the body changes you may notice the throat chakra and voice may go higher or lower. You may feel a hoarseness or scratchy feeling in the throat. Thyroid glands may also act up. (Side note: See you doctor is you have any of these symptoms to rule out something serious….I am not a doctor…just an observer of trends and patterns.) However if nothing is found–drink more water and chalk it up to the pineal gland energy activating.

Find your voice. Don’t stuff your emotions. Deal with your buried emotions!! Start by increasing your conscious awareness by acknowledging what it is you need to do to find your balance again. What is causing the nervous stress in your head, vibrating even more, to get your attention?

Sometimes you will need to de-clutter people, places, and things from your environment that no longer support you. Be strong, be pro-active and get er’ done!!! Make a choice to no longer ignore the inevitable and surrender to the higher powers that guide your life and let it happen easily and effortlessly. No fear. No transition is made easily and without disturbance. Above all…don’t panic… Drink more water, get your rest, and exercise off that extra buzz!!
Side note: However, again, always see your health care provider if you are fearful of any health issues??

With the #5 star of instability located in the center of the ba-gua all this year we may still lot of earth quaking and instability in our lifestyles throughout the year. This month the expansion start gives extra energy to the instability. To offset this unpredictability in your home be sure to place 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. May sure your salt water cure is in place in the center of your home to cool and offset harsh energy. This month the energy unstable earth is energized so stay diligent.
This is an instable time for any business or personal interaction and an unfortunate month for Korea to flex their muscles. Will history repeat itself? As written in the Water Snake book….pg. 10..
General Dwight D. Eisenhower was inaugurated as president in January of 1953 and Nikita
Khrushchev won power in Soviet Union after the death of Josef Stalin. The Soviet Union also
detonated its first hydrogen bomb that same year. In July of 1953, an agreement was signed to ceasefire in the Korean War. East Berliners also rebelled against communist rule, signifying further, a year of change and transformation.

Korea has been flexing their muscles for years and this could be the year the head of the pimple pops and the conflict resolved. They may be the month it could be met with force. I certainly hope it will be solved peacefully.

This month, the Ho-Tu numbers of 1-6 line up in the NW bringing good luck and fortune to the Pig and Dog and NW facing homes. Everyone can place a ship with 6 gold coins or ingots on it in the NW of the home pointing towards the center of the home to activate this energy and symbolize your ship coming in. Make sure the ship is not sailing out a window or door. You may also place a water feature in the NW.
Be careful of health in the West this month. Place a metal wu-lou or cobalt blue crystal in the West with your blue detergent salt water as outline in the Water Snake Book. We may see a rise in lung, eye, ears, throat, and nose again this month, so stay yang, dry, and warm. The Rooster and West facing house should take no unnecessary risks this month with your health. Because the universe speaks in signs and symbols, I recommend every person pack the protection sigil decal on your body and in your car. I have my protection sigil on my front door and the windshield of my car always!! A picture of the sigil can be found on page 52 of the Female Water Snake Book. Also place peacock feathers to bring the protection of the deity Kwan Yin. Limit all red and fire energy in this area this month.

Conflicts with money are possible for the Ox, Tiger and NE facing homes this month. Place a red crystal, red apple, or red Buddha in the NE of your home this month with still water to stabilize the energy.

The Lucky Green Star of Literary Success and Romance flies to South meeting up with the Fame Star. This is a good month for those in writing or the arts, Horse, or South facing home. This month you may see an increase in money for success in writing or direction and intelligence. Place a wish fulfilling crystal in the South with 4 lucky bamboos to bring power and wealth to your writing skills. Children may study in this area this month for increased ability. Place peonies and rose quartz in the South for Romantic luck. Also place a pair of birds to promote longevity and healthy life. This could be a good spot to make babies this month with the big bang spark and the romance star.

Place Salt Water Cure or Salt Lamp in the North of your home this month.

Windfall luck and promotion flies to the Southwest bringing luck to Women, Sheep, and Monkey, as well as a South West facing home. Place 6 coins in the Southwest this month for money luck and fortune.

Karma and Personal Growth aspects in the East this month bring instability, some family units. Be careful of striking too quickly this month. Place a bowl of Blue Detergent in the East of your home to offset this energy. You may also place peacock feathers in this area to symbolize protecting eyes. Place a clear purple crystal or raw clear crystal in this area to promote clear thinking.

The luckiest sector this month is Southeast. Place symbols of wealth, health, and happiness in this sector this month. Place pink peonies for love and happiness, money for wealth, and gourds for good health. You may wish to place the Wealth Gods, Fuk, Luk and Sau in this area to enhance wealth this month. Be sure to have running water in this area with citrine stones or gold ingots in it.

Have a fabulous month!! Live long and prosper!!

Feng Shui Aspects for March 2013

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.

Another month down in the Snake year….. Already going too quickly. The
Female Snake is already on the move removing the rose glasses we have worn for a lifetime. The energy is vibrating at a higher vibration and people are becoming more pro-active in their own be-ing. People are continuing the trend and more are jumping on board the Spirit wagon—looking internally, instead of externally, for answers.

I posted a controversial blog on www.maryshurtleff.com about How Spiritual are You, Really? The blog got mostly some really good reviews but also got nailed with a couple of hate remarks. However, my job as a coach is to punch up the emotions that are stuck and expose them to not only you, but also others. The Female Water Snake exposes lies, secrets, and deceptions and no one is immune. This is the year you will be called on your stuff and illusions stripped away. If you have been bratty, stubborn, or manipulative in the past- it will come back to haunt you this year. If you have been generous and open in the past, that becomes your karma and good will be returned to you. So, make a decision now to come clean and own your stuff. Don’t hide and watch. Just BE. Show the world that you are– good and bad. And if you don’t like what you see—CHANGE it. No one has a spotless mind and backyard, no matter how hard you try to hide. You created it, you can un-create it.

This year we have already seen some of the illusions stripped away within government, church, and personal relations. The Vatican has had it own surge of problems this month. On February 12th right after the Pope announced his resignation the Vatican was struck by lightening, not once but twice. Issues of past abuses of power by its leaders are now plaguing the Church again. In past it was shoved under the rug, however, the Snake energy will not allow it. She is about awareness and retribution. The new pope will have to address that to stabilize the credibility of the Church to the world.

In the Female Water Snake Book 2013 I said:

Pg. 17–MONTH PILLAR: The Yang Wood over Yang Wood (Thunder) signifies
lots of noise and shake up this year with confusion. This year, the structure
of a business, government, church, or family level may see a lot of noise with
no real action. We will hear of things coming that may never materialize. So
with that said, ‘don’t panic until facts are revealed.’ Dig deeper, get the facts first.

Ironically this has already come to pass with the fiscal cliff scare and sequester with both sides touting their scary stories of ‘WHAT IF?” And the gun control that has everyone scrambling for guns. Both issues have caused pillage and plunder with no real action from the events predicted. The solutions—get the facts before you strike out unnecessarily.

Right now with mercury in retrograde until March 17th, there is a lot of miscommunication and people striking out needlessly. Like last year, this behavior is causing a lot of lost relationships. Be patient and be open to hear. Double check your work, follow up on all communications, and balance the energy of your home and body. If you have to say—“Just to be clear’—then repeat what you needed to clarify– will certainly alleviate a lot of misunderstandings.

This month you may continue to feel the changing transition of the year from the aggressive water dragon to the calmer energy of the water snake. The Snake rules the pineal gland, which is located behind the forehead and between the ears. This year you will be hearing with your third ear. You will hear things not being said. You will hear things that are not there. Sometimes it may seem as though your ears are humming because the vibration level has risen. You may feel dizzy or light headed. Some may even pass out. (Side note: See you doctor is you have any of these symptoms to rule out something serious….I am not a doctor…just an observer of trends and patterns.) However if nothing is found–drink more water and chalk it up to the pineal gland energy activating.

You may also have sudden feelings of nervousness or confusion and periods where you may have felt angry but then calm. It will seems as though there is a lot of movement of energy and activity around your body when no one is there and things are bumping in the night so to speak. The Kundalini energy of the Snake is activating the senses and the spine. No transition is made easily and without disturbance. This energy will continue to vibrate for the next month, so stay diligent of what is occurring around you. Above all…don’t panic… Drink more water, get your rest, and exercise off that extra buzz!!
Side note: However, again, always see your health care provider if you are fearful of any health issues??

With the #5 star of instability located in the center of the ba-gua all this year we may still lot of earth quaking and instability in our lifestyles throughout the year. Just this last month in Florida we saw a house sink into a massive sink hole with others being found in the area. Sometimes we just can’t control Mother Nature when she goes out of balance. We must always seek to rebalance what has been thrown out of balance.
To offset this instability in your home be sure to place 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.
This month, the star of Career flies to the center of the ba-gua and merges with the star of instability bringing some uncertainty to business ventures. Change out all salt water vases located in the center of the home this month to ensure they are in good clear condition. Place a ship with gold on it in the center of the home to subconsciously symbolize your ship coming in.
This month in the Northwest place a metal or wood wu-lou to offset illness and emotions. We may see a rise in lung issues this month, so stay yang, dry, and warm. The dog and pig should take no unnecessary risks this month with your health. Because the universe speaks in signs and symbols, I recommend every person pack the protection sigil decal on your body and in your car. I have my protection sigil on my front door and the windshield of my car always!! A picture of the sigil can be found on page 52 of the Female Water Snake Book.

Conflict meets with instability in the West this month. Place a bowl of blue detergent salt water in this area. (Blue detergent, salt, and water in equal parts). Also peacock feathers to bring the protection of the deity Kwan Yin. Limit all red and fire energy in this area this month.

The Lucky Green Star of Literary Success and Romance flies to Northeast meeting up with the Wealth star, symbolizing an increase in money for success in writing or direction and intelligence. Place a wish fulfilling crystal in the Northeast to bring power and wealth to your writing skills. Children may study in this area this month for increased ability. Place peonies and rose quartz in the Northeast for Romantic luck. Also place a pair of birds to promote longevity and healthy life. This could be a good spot to make babies this month with the womb energy of the earth and the romance star. The Tiger and Ox may be extremely fertile this month so be careful if you do not wish to have a bambino.

Place Salt Water Cure or Salt Lamp in the South of your home this month. Be careful of too much fire energy here this month. Place raw clear crystals in the south to lift the energy of the unstable earth in this sector this month.

Power and Authority flies to the North bringing career luck. Place 6 coins in a vase of water in the North this month. The Rat and North facing homes may especially see career promotions this month.

Karma and Personal Growth aspects in the Southwest this month bring instability, some illness, and emotional outbreaks to women and anyone residing in that area. In addition to the wu-lou in the SW, place a bowl of Blue Detergent in the SW of your home to offset this energy. You may also place peacock feathers in this area to symbolize protecting eyes. Place a clear blue crystal or raw clear crystal in this area to promote clear thinking.

The Wealth star resides in the East this month bringing good money prospects to family endeavors. You may wish to place the Wealth Gods, Fuk, Luk and Sau in this area to enhance wealth this month. Be sure to have running water in this area with citrine stones or gold ingots in it.

Reputation and fame can be found in the Southeast sector this month as the Purple Star of Expansion flies in this month bringing double luck to writing and arts skills. Place 4 bamboos in this area to uplift that creative energy. The energy is also high for romance. If you wish to activate your sex life, place small water vase and your peach blossom animal in this area. Be careful of unwanted pregnancy and extra marital affairs.

Have a fabulous month!! Live long and prosper!!

Feng Shui Aspects for February 2013

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 monthly adjustments, in addition to the annual flying stars, should be placed in the directional sectors of the property, home, office, or desk.

Finally the Water Dragon is gone but he didn’t leave without bells and whistles.

If you recall, the Water Dragon is the ruler of the heavens and lightening, rain, wind, and thunder and is of the earth element. Between February 4th and the 10th we felt his departure. We felt the earth quake as he stood to fly and the storms howl when he flew away. The East coast was again hit with Nor’easters and the rest of the country was plunged into stormy temperatures as well. Since February 1st, earthquakes have been felt in Japan, Solomon Islands, North Korea, Columbia, Nevada, and Utah and the month is not over yet.

The month you may continue to feel the changing transition of the year from the aggressive water dragon to the calmer energy of the water snake. You may feel a slight dizziness or air-headed feeling; a sudden feeling of nervousness or confusion; periods where you may have felt angry but then calm; lots of movement of energy and activity around your body when no one was there and things bumping in the night so to speak. No transition is made easily and without disturbance. This energy will continue to vibrate into the New Year for a few days and even weeks, so stay diligent of what is occurring around you.

With the #5 in the center of the ba-gua this year we may see a lot of earth quaking and instability in our lifestyles. To offset this in your home be sure to place added metal for foundation and salt water to break down the unstable energy to the center of your home. Also place a beautiful raw clear crystal 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.

This month, the #2 earth star of illness flying to the center of the ba-gua and merging with the #5 of instability may bring many health issues to many people.

This year has already begun to be an interesting year of accident and injury. In addition to the storms and earthquakes, the year has already seen a police standoff on February 12, 2013 with an ex-LA police officer, Christopher Dorner that ended explosive violence. This confrontation rivaled the Josh Powell incidence, which occurred at the beginning of the Chinese New Year last year on February 5, 2012, in Washington State that resulted in the death of two small children. Adding another layer to this tragedy, Josh Powell’s brother, Michael, committed suicide on February 11, 2013, less than a week after the anniversary of the death of the Josh Powell. I hope this energy is a combination of the dragon leaving and the #5 and #2 meeting in the center of the ba-gua and not the Snake appearing. I am hoping for a quieter year.

To offset this aggressive energy in your home this month, place a BIG metal wu-lou in the middle of the ba-gua this month. If you don’t have a wu-lou, place added metal to the center of the home. Also make sure that salt water adjustment is in place. Take no unnecessary risks this month with your health. This is a universal pattern so no one is immune. You may also place plants in the center of the home this year to control some of the #5 energy. Pack the protection sigil decal on your body and in your car. Also you may put it on your front door. I leave my sigil on my front door always!! A picture of the sigil can be found on page 52 of the Female Water Snake Book.

You may also invite the Medicine Buddha (midnight blue body) or Jesus into your home. Hang a picture of the Medicine Buddha or Jesus in the center of your home and leave it there all year.

If you wish to invite the Medicine Buddha, just say:

‘I invite the Medicine Buddha into my home to protect my family and myself from illness.’

A picture of the Blue Buddha is found on page 33 of the Female Water Snake book found at www.maryshurtleff.com.

OR

If you wish to invite Jesus into your home you may do the following affirmation:

In the name of Jesus I command the illness/affliction of ________________ to be healed. It is done. It is done. It is done. (Say this several times a day)

This month of February, the #3 flies to the Northwest of the home meeting the annual #6 of power and authority. This month, on a universal level, we will again see many conflicts and challenges around government, religions, business, and/or any place where there is a presence of authority. The power will be challenged. In the private home, we may see relationships challenges surrounding father, the Pig, and the Dog people. To keep this to a dull roar, place a red Buddha or red crystal in the North West of your home. Be kind this month.

The #4 Lucky Green Star of Literary Success and Romance flies to West this month, symbolizing an increase for success in writing or direction and intelligence. Since the #4 meets up with the #7, be sure to double-check all paper work for clarity and mistakes. The #4 star is also referred to as the romance star. The Rooster may feel more romantic this month. However, with that said, be careful of extra marital affairs. Everyone may place peonies and rose quartz in the West for Romantic luck. Also place a pair of birds to promote longevity and healthy life. Be sure to keep the blue detergent adjustment in place throughout the year.

The monthly # 5 of Instability goes to the Northeast of the ba-gua this month, meeting with the #8 causing financial instability. Place a Salt Water Cure or Salt Lamp in the North East of your home to offset this energy. Keep your running water feature in place and balls of gold throughout the year. The Tiger and Ox need to watch their health this month.

The #6 Star of Power and Authority flies to the South this month meeting with the #9 of expansion bringing luck to the South and the Horse. Place 6 Metal Chinese coins or 6 American Gold Dollars in the South of your home. Place a Tribute Horse figure
in the South this year with the wish fulfilling mantra—OM USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT—under it.

#7 Star of Karma and Personal Growth flies to the North this month meeting the #1 of career bringing legal issues, conflict, and instability to the North and career. If you have been dishonest in business, it will be revealed this month. Karma will find you. Place a bowl of Blue Detergent in the North of your home to offset this energy. Place a blue or clear smooth crystal ball in the North this month to keep career flowing smoothly.

The #8 of money flies to the South West this month bringing good money prospects to Southwest sector of women, sheep and monkey. You may wish to place the Wealth Gods, Fuk, Luk and Sau in this area to enhance wealth this month. Be sure to have running water in this area with citrine stones or gold ingots in it. Since the annual star #2 of illness is present continue to keep the metal wu-luo in place.

The #9 Purple Star of Expansion flies into the East this month and brings double the energy to the #3 of conflict. Place a Red Buddha in this sector to remind you of love and peace within the family unit. Also place a spiritual deity to guide any family issues that may arise.

The #1 of Career flies to the Southeast of the Home and the sector of the Dragon and Snake this month. The #4 annual wood/water combo makes the Southeast an excellent sector to get your paperwork done this month –the dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s. The #1 of Career brings with it new opportunities and money. To activate the East of the home use a Water Feature or any symbol of Water. You may also use a Bamboo Ship with Metal Ingots in the Southeast to symbolize your ship coming in. This can help with business luck as well as promotion or recognition in one’s field. Place the Wealth Gods, Fuk, Luk, and Sau, in this sector of your home or office. Place peonies and rose quartz in the East for Romantic luck. Also place a pair of birds to promote longevity and healthy life.

Continue this month to get your annual adjustments in place and keep up on the monthly stars that may fly into your animals. Have a fabulous month. Next month will settle down!!
