Happy Flying Star year 2012!

This is it!  Today is the first day of the year for Flying Stars in 2012.

Most of the readers of this blog are Flying Star enthusiasts but if you’re not familiar with it, Flying Stars is a type of feng shui that has predictive qualities to it kind of like astrology.   This is why so many readers of this blog like Flying Stars over other types of feng shui and, unlike astrology, there are ways you can activate the best Stars so that you benefit from their gifts and there are remedies for the grumpy Stars so that you can reduce their impact on your life.

Because feng shu works in cycles of 9 many of you have told me that you started feeling the Flying Stars energy as far back as December.  That’s because with the yearly Flying Stars (there are also monthly and 20 year Flying Stars), you can start feeling their energy up to 9 weeks before they actually ‘fly in’ to their new locations for the coming year.

We’ve also seen 2012’s Stars begin to show their impact on the economy. 

  1. American Airlines filed for bankruptcy protection (Robbery Star on airlines, travel, car manufacturers this year).
  2. Planned Parenthood received a firestorm of bad press due to their decision to stop funding breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood (Conflict Star on breasts, motherhood this year).
  3. Facebook announces their $5 billion IPO (Abundance Star on technology this year).

There are others, but you get the idea.

Even though I’ve been writing about the Stars for years now, it never ceases to amaze me how their predictive ability manifests in the world each year.

Kua numbers

I’m in the process of writing up a Flying Star Feng Shui forecast for a client of mine in Arizona and she’s about to have an amazing year in 2011.  She’s sure to be happy to hear that because the Stars for 2010 were pretty crappy which, in turn, made 2010 a challenging year for her though she never complained about it.

Anyway, I got so excited about what’s coming up for her that I posted a comment on Facebook saying I wish I could be a fly on her wall this year to see how it all unfolds because it’s all so positive.  Someone else responded and asked if I was talking about them. 

 Well, I wasn’t but as it turns out this other person has the same Kua (pronounced kwah) number as my client in Arizona. 

A Kua number in feng shui is like your sign in astrology.  And like your astrological sign your Kua number is based on your birthday.

So for those of you interested in knowing what your Kua number is I thought I’d post a chart for you here: Kua numbers 1210

Kua numbers 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8 are in for a surprisingly good year.  Much better than 2010 for sure.

Kua number 1, 3, 4 and 9 may find 2011 to be mixed.  Some will go through unexpected changes, others may find they work harder than last year, while the rest experience an unexpected winfall or learn how to maximize their listening skills and sense of humor.

I’m in the process of finishing my book of forecasts and predictions for each Kua number for 2011 and will let you know when it’s available.  Cheers!

Feng Shui Flying Stars out Tyler Clementi and 4 other boys this month

Raymond Chase

September was a tragic month for five young men.  All were teenagers who were bullied by classmates for being homosexual:
–Raymond Chase, a 19 year old culinary student at Johnson & Wales
–Billy Lucas, a 15 year old high school freshman from Indiana
–Seth Walsh, age 13 from California
— Asher Brown, age 13 of Cypress, TX

And finally, the most recognized name of all, Tyler Clementi, an 18 year old freshman attending Rutgers University.

Why did so many young men take their lives this month?  A better question may be why did they take their lives at all. 

The most obvious answer would seem to be that they just couldn’t take the harrassment any longer and decided it was too much to bear.  But why did they pick September to end it all?  Well, because the feng shui Flying Stars were ideal for these young men who felt they could no longer go on.

Here’s what I mean.  In September, the Flying Stars sitting in the south created a combination that is believed to stimulate homosexuality.  These Stars also happen to create problems for young men, so the combination of Stars created the perfect negative environment for escalating hateful acts and behavior towards these boys.

In feng shui the south happens to represent Fame and Recognition and the result was that the Flying Stars that put  the boys’ homosexuality in the spotlight for everyone in their schools to see.   In essence, they became even bigger targets for the bullies than normal. 

Because of this it’s not surprising that the video encounter of Tyler Clementi and his friend landed on the internet.  The Flying Stars made it easy for this to happen in September.

In fact, it’s no surprise that all five of these boys ended up gaining worldwide fame this past month.  What is surprising is that these children had to endure being bullied at all.   My heart goes out to them and their families.

Betty White’s shining (feng shui) stars

Betty White on SNL

Betty White hosts SNL


Who doesn’t love Betty White?  She’s funny, charming and reminds you of your own grandmother or the little old lady next door.     

After her show The Golden Girls ended we didn’t see much of her around.  But ever since the Facebook campaign to get her on Saturday Night Live (SNL) she’s been everywhere from the Snicker’s Super Bowl commercial to SNL where she was happy to tell us all about her tremendous muffin and now to a new show called Hot in Cleveland where she plays a disagreeably lovable grounds keeper.     

It’s as though her career has taken off again so I thought we’d look at her personal Flying Star Feng Shui to see if there are any clues about her renewed popularity this year.     

Betty White has two Flying Stars that are directly involved with her succes this year.  The first one is the Transformation Star sitting on her Career direction and the Career Star sitting on her Relationship direction.     

When these two Stars move into your Career and Relationship directions you can bet you’ll see a change in your work and the people around you.       

The Transformation Star always brings change of some kind and almost always in a sudden and unexpected way.   Since this Star is on her Career direction it meant that a sudden change would occur for her as an actress.     

The other Star in play is the Career Star on her Relationship direction which brings new people into her life that want to help her succeed in her work.   So it’s no surprise that Facebook fans decided to rally around her and push SNL to have Betty host the show.      

This is a great year for Betty White and it’s fun to see someone who is 88 years old on the entertainment pages right next to women 1/3 her age with 1/3 of her talent.

The Fated Feng Shui of Euna Lee and Laura Ling

Euna Lee and Laura Ling

Euna Lee and Laura Ling

Periodically I send out a request on Twitter and Facebook asking if anyone has a current event they’d like analyzed with feng shui.  Well Susan Somerset Webb on Facebook stepped up to the plate to ask about the feng shui of Euna Lee and Laura Ling the two American reporters who were recently released by the North Koreans courtesy of former President Bill Clinton.

In order to look at their capture and release we really have to look at the whole reason Laura and Euna were there in the first place.  Both were reporters for Al Gore’s television station, Current TV, and crossed over into North Korea illegally.  They were arrested in March 2009, suspected of being spies.

Here’s the thing about this.  There is a branch of feng shui called Flying Star and under this type of feng shui there are 9 Flying Stars, each have their own meaning.  Each Flying Star sits on a particular direction (N, S, E, W, etc.) for the year and this year the Conflict Star sits in the Northeast. 

If you look at a map of the world North Korea is in the Northeast part of the world meaning they are likely to create and/or experience more disagreements, arguements, fighting, etc. than other parts of the world. 

On top of this the Northeast represents writing and journalism so this industry is likely to experience conflict as well.  Both Euna and Laura doubly exposed themselves to this energy by way of their careers AND being in North Korea this year.

Looking at Laura’s personal feng shui it’s obvious that 2009 is going to be challenging for her career and her relationships.  She has the Violence Star on her Success direction meaning the possibility of a violent event occuring as a result of her job is greatly increased.  Additionally she has the Disaster Star on her Relationship direction meaning that something bad could happen as a result of her relationship with a friend, family member or co-worker. 

These are very troubling Flying Stars to have to deal with when you look at them in conjunction with the Flying Stars on North Korea and on journalism.  This combination is just like holding a bomb that can go off at any time.  I believe that because Laura’s personal feng shui is so negative this year that her Flying Star energy was the trigger for both women getting arrested but fortunately Euna was with her.

Here’s what I mean.

Euna Lee was exposed to the same negative Flying Star influences because of being a journalist and being in North Korea but her personal feng shui was much better than Laura’s.  Euna has the Windfall Star on her Success direction meaning an opportunity was likely to land in her lap as a result of her career and that opportunity turned out to be former President Clinton agreeing to negotiate her release.

On top of this her Relationship direction has the Illness Star on it.  That may sound bad but this Star is not always as negative as it sounds.  In fact it can mean that through hard work your efforts pay off and Euna being an employee of Al Gore’s television station paid off in ways she couldn’t have imagined.

It turns out that Euna’s Relationship direction is tied to television and media broadcasting.  This means that people at Current TV were working hard behind the scenes (namely Al Gore)  to help the two women to get out of this situation.  In all honesty if Euna had not been with Laura I don’t think their release would have come as quickly and Laura would have been there until next year had she been by herself.

And now to Kim Jong il.  His feng shui actually played a role as well.  His Success direction has the Conflict Star on it and he certainly has been creating a lot of problems around the world this year between missle testing and holding these two women hostage.  This may actually escalate in October when this Conflict energy doubles so stay tuned.

So why would he be willing to let these women go given his nasty disposition (or should I say nastier?) this year?  Well Euna and Laura can thank the Flying Star on Kim Jong il’s Relationship direction this year.

Kim Jong Il’s Relationship direction is tied specifically to helpful people, leaders and heavenly support (this is why this guy is not likely to be booted from power).  In other words he has people looking out for him and powerful people helping him throughout his life.  This year the Star of New Beginnings sits on his Relationship direction meaning he is likely to meet and/or become friends with someone new and powerful and that person turned out to be none other than Bill Clinton.  Just what his Relationship direction predicted this year.

You may be wondering why none of this happened earlier since these Flying Stars are on these directions all year.  Well the answer would be that there are also monthly Flying Stars and at the time of Euna Lee and Laura Ling’s release the same Flying Stars that were in the Northeast and on Laura, Euna and Kim’s personal directions for the year were also there for the month.  This pairing up of feng shui Stars doubled the energy for everyone involved.

Because of this the meeting between Clinton and Kim Jong il was likely to be very intense with a lot of posturing and strutting going on by the North Korean dictator.  But the end result was worth it.

Feng shui is so much deeper than furniture arrangement and color schemes and it’s because feng shui’s history goes back over 5,000 years.  When you can find a classical Feng Shui consultant who can help you decipher the meaning of your Flying Stars it can help you navigate any waters that lie ahead.
