New Year feng shui preparation 2012

Happy New Year, everyone!  It’s 2012 according to the calendar but we still have another month to go before the Flying Stars change over into 2012 so I thought it would be good to talk about how to prepare for the new feng shui year.

Some of you are already feeling the effects of 2012’s Flying Stars based on the e-mails I’ve been getting from you.  The reason for this is that feng shui works in cycles of 9 (9 directions on the bagua, 9 Flying Stars, etc.) so it’s possible that you felt the Flying Stars’ energy as early as December.

If that rings true for you then go ahead and start preparing for 2012’s Stars now.  If not, feel free to wait until Feb. 3 to prepare as the new Flying Star year begins on Feb. 4, 2012.

Here are some ways you can prepare:

1.  Take down the Flying Star activations and remedies you put up for 2011 and clean them off so they’re ready for 2012.  Clean your crystals in salt water and then let them soak up the sun during the day so they’re re-energized.  Clean out your wind chimes with lavendar water and let them air dry.  See if you need to fertilize plants you used in your feng shui or whether you need to replace them with new ones.

2.  Clean your windows inside and outside.  If you live in a cold climate where washing the outside of your windows would be crazy right now then wait til it warms up but at least clean the inside.  Windows let in the Flying Star energy and dirty windows block this from happening.

3.  Clean your front door and front entry way as best you can.  If you live where it’s warm then get some of that cleaner you attach to your hose and hose down your front entry way and door.  Repair the door knob and lock if necessary and get a new doormat to welcome the new year.  Never use a doormat with your family name on it unless you want your family treated like a doormat. 

4.  Replace your A/C filters, water filters and other filters you may have in the house.

5.  Make sure that windows open easily, sliding doors slide easily and doors are in good working order.  If they’re not then fix them so they work properly.

6.  Get rid of dead plants.  Dead things bring dead energy.

7.  Clean out your pantry, closets, junk drawers, kitchen cabinets and garage.   Clutter, trash and unused items block the flow of chi (pronounced chee) or energy in your home and can prevent you from receiving all the benefits you deserve.

These seven things will go a long way toward bringing in the positive energy of 2012’s Flying Stars so try to get as much done as you can.

    Hi Chris,

    How does it work if a room is situated between west and southwest. Under which direction the room falls under? Also, if a person’s personal directions (based on personal Gua) is in conflict with the current year’s flying stars position, does this mean the Gua positions are effectively useless?

      Hi Benjamin,

      Some homes/buildings have rooms that are partially in one gua and partially in another. If that’s the case it falls in both guas. Some books say look to see which gua the door to the room is in and that will be the dominant direction. I haven’t found that to be true. If the room is an office try to put your desk in the area of the room that has one of your best directions. If it’s a bedroom try to put your bed in the area that has one of your best directions.

      Flying Stars influence your best directions either positively or negatively. For example, if you have the Robbery Star on your career direction it’s likely you’ll lose money through your career either through a cut in pay, cut in bonus, cut in benefits, job loss, loss of clients, etc. The gua is always influential, it’s just a matter of whether the Star sitting there is going to influence it positively or negatively.
