Flying Star Feng Shui outlook – October 2011

It’s hard to believe we’re moving into the last quarter of the year.  Where has the time gone?  It seems like just last week we were packing away the Halloween decorations and now another trick-or-treating season is upon us.

The monthly Flying Stars change position for October on the 8th and stay there until November 7th.  Here is the outlook for the month:

Whenever the Star combinations come together so that their energy leans more toward challenging aspects, see it as a time you can learn something new about yourself or even practice some new positive behavior that is not typical of how you would react normally.

As I go through the directions and outlook I’ll explain more how to do just that.

Southeast – The Flying Stars here are known to bring about feelings of loneliness.  Since this is the area of the oldest daughter your oldest daughter could feel somewhat melancholy this month.  This is also the area of finances and wealth which means there may be a financial institution out there that is saying one thing about the state of the banking/financial system while everyone else is saying something that’s completely the opposite. 

The way to move through this energy as an individual is to learn how to enjoy being by yourself.  Great insights and inspiration often come when we’re quite and by ourselves.  It’s also a good time for meditating and reading when these Stars fly in.

To bring about the most beneficial effects these Stars have to offer be sure to get you October Feng Shui remedies and activations here.

South – This area is prone to emotional stress, particularly between mother-in-laws and their daughter-in-laws.  If you find that you’re in this situation this month see if you can listen to what the other person is really saying.  Often when words of sarcasm, scolding or anger are said there’s an underlying message of feeling unheard or un-needed by the other person.  See if you can uncover that message because opening up true lines of communication will strengthen your relationship and create an alliance.

Southwest – The southwest is the area of the feng shui bagua tied to marriage and business partnerships.  This month the Stars create relationship problems for people who’s relationships are on thin ice to begin with.  If this is what you’re experiencing in one of your personal or company relationships see if the other person is willing to sit down and talk it out, preferably with a neutral third party to guide you such as a counsellor or mediator. 

East – If you’ve been following my blog you know that the east is a troublesome area all year.  In fact, it’s troublesome until early February 2012 because that’s how long the Disaster Star sits in the east this year. 

During October, the Violence Star comes to sit with the Disaster Star which brings trouble to families and governments.  The way this Star combination often plays out is through deception.  Make sure that whatever you’re being told by a family member or the government (if you happen to be dealing with some branch of the government or work for the government) is really true.  If you’re gut instinct tells you you’re being lied to or that something is not quite right with the story you’re being told, check it out.  Odds are that you’re going to find out you’re right.

The Star combination in the east can also bring unexpected financial loss, theft or serious accidents with sharp objects.  Now is not the time to invest in risky ventures or even seemingly safe ventures. 

If you front door faces east try to come and go from another door this month and make sure to lock your doors and turn on your house alarm.

Center – The Center gua always sets the ‘theme’ for the month.  You may not see this theme in your own personal life, but you’ll see it play out in the global arena or even in your own country. 

This month the theme is Double Violence/Robbery/Fire which means we can expect to hear even more (is that possible?) news about fire related disasters, violent uprisings and theft around the world. 

This month you could find yourself spending more money than usual which can be a good thing depending on what you’re spending your money on.  Because the Stars can also bring fire make sure that if you have any electrical problems you get those fixed sooner rather than later.  Turn off your coffee pot and iron before you leave the house, too.

West – Double Illness is what the west is offering this month.  Since the west is the area for children, creativity and technology these are the areas that will be most affected by the Stars.  More children will be coming home from school with colds or viruses they pick up from their classmates. 

If you’re an artist, writer, dancer, sculptor or in another creative field you may find that you have to work harder this month to earn a living or work harder to come up with creative ideas.

The technology sector is likely to experience a decline in sales this month.  Apple is supposed to be bringing its 5th generation iTouch to market at the end of the month but it may not sell as well as they are hoping.  November would be a better launch month for them.

Northeast – If you’re travelling for your church or school this is a good month to go.  However, the Stars here are also prone to bringing about gossip and lawsuits.  If you are a teacher, work in a church or in education in some capacity rumors could spread like wildfire right now.   We can expect to see negative press about schools, churches, religious organizations, colleges, and education in general right now.

North – The north represents the future and career areas of the bagua and this month the Flying Stars bring financial woes.  This means that companies that make earnings annoucements in October will likely disappoint investors.  It also means that companies are less likely to hire new employees now.

If you’re looking for a job and get an offer the salary and/or benefits could disappoint you.  I hope this isn’t the case but if it is and you really need to take the job just think of it as the Universe asking you to get creative with your monthly budget.

Northwest – It’s true that this area can bring about problems with business partners and since the Stars in the southwest can bring that too it just means that the Universe is giving those of you in partnerships that aren’t working out an exit strategy right now.  If that’s the case for you, accept it and move on.

The upside to the Stars in the northwest is that they can be good for money right now so if you are exiting a partnership be sure to negotiate a financial settlement now. 

The Stars here are also good for asking friends, mentors and clients for referrals because they’re likely to be good ones. 

The best way to reduce the energy of the difficult Flying Stars and activate the positive energy of the best Stars is to use your Feng Shui remedies and activations.  You can find them all here: October 2011 Flying Star Feng Shui

    I know it’s bad to sleep in the east this year and month but is it as bad to have your headboard face east? We are on vacation in napa for 9 days and we are in a room in the sw of the house but the headboard faces east. Thanks
