Flying Star Feng Shui


There are many schools of Feng Shui. Flying Star Feng Shui is a subset of Xuan Kong Feng Shui, which is itself  a subset of the San Yuan school of Feng Shui.  The name "Xuan Kong" means "mysterious and void". The term “Star” in Flying Star Feng Shui does not refer to the stars as we would think of them. It means simply a form of energy. There are 9 Stars all with a quality of their own. Some are beneficial, some are not. They are said to “Fly” because the move around the directions North, South, East and West according to the time of year, month or day or hour. Every structure – house, office – church, has these energetic influences guided by when the structure was built. In addition, the structure is influenced by the energetic make-up of the current year, month and day. A Flying Star assessment will let you know where these energies are in your house and what you can do about them.

In the Feng Shui of a home of office, the structure is looked at much like a human being.  It has a time and place it was “born”(constructed) and this time and place influences it energetically throughout it’s existence. The structure is also influenced by the energy of the year. The Chinese were Masters of observation and understood the inherent nature of land forms and their influence on a dwelling or office. This knowledge is applied to Feng Shui as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine. 
There are 9 of these Stars and they move about on a yearly, monthly and hourly basis. 
This is an actual house plan with the Stars as they fall in the house.

It stays in places that people dislike

Therefore it is similar to the Tao"
