2014 Flying Stars
There are many different schools of Feng Shui all dealing with physical environments such as buildings, trees, mountains, rivers, roads and so on, and how they interact. The environment that surrounds humans affects their well-being. So it is believed that from the smallest decorative object to the overall structural design, all these things affect the feng shui of a place.
One popular method of Feng Shui is the Flying Star School. This system represents nine stars whose origin probably was inspired from the constellation we call the Big Dipper. The reason it is called the flying stars is because they are constantly moving and their impact is directional.
The Flying Stars are associated with the Compass School. People that prescribe to this school look at the horoscope of a building. This method uses the sitting and facing directions of the building and its age to create the flying star chart and a numerological diagram. By studying the various directions, and which stars are present, one can decide in which quadrant Feng Shui remedies should be used to reduce inauspicious influences and activate auspicious energies.
It is fine to re-use the items, from the previous year’s flying star adjustments i.e. Foo Dogs, coins etc. Check there condition and if damaged replace them. New Year Paper Couplets must always be new.
