Monthly Flying Stars – January 2017, Metal Ox  Xin Chou 辛丑 (from January 5th to February 2nd)

Monthly Flying Stars – January 2017, Metal Ox Xin Chou 辛丑 (from January 5th to February 2nd)

In addition to the annual flying stars explained in a dedicated article, there are also monthly flying stars that occupy different areas of your home or workplace for a month. Each area will be occupied by one of the 9 different stars for a complete month. This star will combine during this period with the annual star that is already located in the same area.

First, identify the areas where your front door, your bedroom, your kitchen and your living room are located and follow the monthly recommendations to set up some elemental cures to either reduce the impact of the negative stars and/or activate the auspicious energies of these areas.

Each diagram is used in the same way: in each of the 9 squares, you will find 2 numbers. The number in the upper left corner indicates the monthly star while the number in the centre indicates the annual star. Use a reliable compass to determine the direction, and then refer to the corresponding square to see the monthly forecasts for each sector. Focus especially on the protection or activation of the areas in which your front door and your bedroom are located!


Excellent prosperity and health luck might materialize if you spend time in this area, or if your front door is located here. Consider to develop your company further and to take your career to the next level! Activate this sector with moving Water to attract promotion luck and to avoid misunderstandings and quarrels between colleagues and among siblings, and make use of the Earth element in this sector.


The wheel turns for the better, because the number 4 star brings good luck in love, education and creativity. Combined with the star 6, it also brings financial windfall. Install a fountain here to activate the money luck, but too much Water here could negatively influence married women and attract relationship problems. Protect your relation with an amethyst and activate the education luck with a crystal globe. Liver- or eyes-related health problems may occur. Use Metal to counter this.


This sector will enjoy better luck this month as prosperity luck might bring unexpected financial windfall, which can be further enhanced with decorative Earth elements. There will be plenty of opportunities for advancement in your career and to grow your company more. Install a fountain in this sector to give a boost to your prosperity luck and reputation. People already in a relationship could go through a quieter period in their love life. It is also a good area for students this month.


The prosperity star has been replaced by the star of violence, making the month less favourable compared to last month. Risk of burglaries and money losses are possible. Protect your home with moving Water to also limit the risk of fire hazards. The imbalance in the elements will cause disputes among family members. Try to strengthen ties and also avoid sleeping in this sector as much as possible, because there are indications of deception.


The multiplicative star further strengthens the illness star that is already present here. This star combination does not favour marriage luck and also brings serious health problems to people already suffering from poor health. Eat more healthily. Putting Metal in this area will improve your health and relationship luck. The elderly and pregnant women should avoid using this room and, if possible, change their bedroom location if it is located here.


This sector is afflicted by the monthly illness star. If your front door or bedroom is located here, the family members may experience problems with internal organs. Remove it by placing metallic objects in this area and avoid to fully illuminate the West, because the light could strengthen the star 2. Married women should be careful because predators might come to plague their relationship. Please note also the risks of disputes among different women of the house (conflict between the wife and the mother-in-law).


It will be a hectic month for residents of the area because the quarrelsome star joined the star of bad luck. There could be serious problems with money and disputes that may negatively influence your business luck. Put Metal in this area to reduce cash flow problems and quarrels between spouses. Avoid the Northeast if possible and keep it as quiet as possible. Better to change the room if your bedroom is located here. A kitchen located here may aggravate matters further. Place a dish filled with red apples in this sector to keep the afflicted Qi under control.


This sector is seriously afflicted this month as the monthly star 5 brings health problems and bad luck. Place Metal on your night-stand if your bedroom is located here or even better, if possible, change room during this month. To avoid any legal issues that might arise, postpone signature of major contracts if your home or front door is facing North. Pay attention to your personal security and place a Yin Water cure near your front door for protection.


The white star 1 located here brings favourable indications on educational level and senior positions. Your luck improves and brings new ways of development. Students should spend more time in the Northwest to take advantage of these energies here. Place some Earth elements here, but make sure that the area is not too noisy, otherwise you may activate the negative aspects of the star 3 (slander, problems with the authorities, legal proceedings…).
