Fengshui in Rat Year 2008

5 January 2008
 

Dreams and realities are by essence the same thing, the apparent difference between the two is that while dreams are isolated imaginations of individuals, the earthly realities are perceptions shared by all humans, and others, and beyond; as such, they could not be easily altered by the desires and efforts of one or few consciousness.

So what are the qualities of our perceived environment in Rat Year 2008?

From the perspective of the Flying Star Fengshui, it has a lot to do with the annual locations of the nine major heavenly bodies, in particular four stars residing in four key positions:

The Greedy Wolf for Quest (贪狼化禄), the Great Yin for Action (太阴星化权), the Right-hand Assistance for Support (右弼星化科) and the Celestial Intelligence for Obstruction (天机星化忌).

Below is a Nine Palace Flying Star Chart (九宫飞星图) for Rat Year 2008, which can be applied to any given space: a room, a house, a state or the whole planet.

SOUTH

East: +++

A direction governed by Eight White Left-hand Supporter (八白左辅星). As the chief money corner in 2008, this location has a great impact on our financial situations. An object with Fire attribute (such as a red carpet) could further help to channel the positive qi from Wood (Five Agents trait of the Position) to Earth (Five Agents trait of the star).

Southeast:

A direction governed by Nine Purple Right-hand Assistance (九紫右弼星). It is the corner stands for celebration, romance and family life.

South: ---

A direction governed by Five Yellow Calamity (五黄廉贞星), the most destructive force among the nine, signifying illness and injuries. It is important to keep this area free of physical or audio disturbances, and avoid to place a fish tank or plants there, as the flowing or the growing vibrations may reinforce its foul effects.

Southwest:

A direction governed by Seven Red Breaking Force (七赤破军星), the chief patron for the entertainment industry and leisure activities. This is a star with enormous energy, which could be both positive or negative, all depends on how its power is utilized.

West: ---

A direction governed by Three Blue Wealth Reserve (三碧禄存星). Ironically, this force has nothing to do with helping to build wealth reserve but everything to do with giving rise to relationship problems and financial disasters. However, it's undesirable attributes could be neutralised by placing green plants in this area.

Northwest: ---

A direction governed by Two Black Giant Gate (二黑巨门星). The qi from this corner could contribute to various health problems, therefore it might be wise to keep your bed away from this location.

North: +++

A direction governed by Six White Martial Tune (六白武曲星). It's a second money corner in 2008, in particular when unexpected financial gains are concerned, such as investment returns. As it is where the annual ruling star (太岁) resides in 2008, it is advisable to keep this area undisturbed by major construction works.

Northeast:

A direction governed by Four Green Cultural Tune (四禄文曲星), a star associated with academic achievements, therefore it's a good idea to place your desk there.

Centre: +++

An area governed by One White Greedy Wolf (一白贪狼星), which is one of three most beneficial heavenly influences in the chart. The energy generated from this star helps to fulfil earthly quests for money, love, fame and success; and believe it or not, despite what is implied in its name, it also helps to achieve harmony and peace.
