Monthly Flying Stars – October 2017, Month of the Metal Dog – Geng Xu 庚戌 (from October 8th to November 6th)

In addition to the annual flying stars explained in a dedicated article, there are also monthly flying stars that occupy different areas of your home or workplace for a month. Each area will be occupied by one of the 9 different stars for a complete month. This star will combine during this period with the annual star that is already located in the same area.

First, identify the areas where your front door, your bedroom, your kitchen and your living room are located and follow the monthly recommendations to set up some elemental cures to either reduce the impact of the negative stars and/or activate the auspicious energies of these areas.

Each diagram is used in the same way: in each of the 9 squares, you will find 2 numbers. The number in the upper left corner indicates the monthly star while the number in the centre indicates the annual star. Use a reliable compass to determine the direction, and then refer to the corresponding square to see the monthly forecasts for each sector. Focus especially on the protection or activation of the areas in which your front door and your bedroom are located!


This sector enjoys an excellent prosperity luck this month. People residing in the Southeast or living in Southeast facing houses can expect good times. Stimulate the energy in this sector with lights and organize a party here to activate the energies present in the sector. Business luck is also good and you can therefore make bold decisions in your investments (real estate).


The luck of people residing here will progress favorably, as the monthly misfortune star has left this sector. Luck is improving, especially on the relational and academic level, but energy remains problematic health-wise with different problems that may arise (skin, digestion, abdomen, infections…). It is therefore essential to balance the energies present here with Metal energy and avoid putting too much Water in this area.


The stars in this area provide excellent speculative luck and financial windfalls. You may have to face strong competition at your workplace. Try to anticipate your opponents by putting Yin Water here to outsmart your rivals. There is also an excess of Metal energy here and Water will also help to protect against burglary threats. This sector does not promote love life.


Avoid leaving the doors ajar in the East, as the violence and burglary star flew into this sector. Be very careful because there is a high risk of armed robbery and money loss. Place Yin Water near the front door to help you protect yourself against offenses. Do not go out too late at night and do not go out alone. On a happier note, you can expect small gains in competitive games if your bedroom is located here.


The Sum of Ten combination in the Centre is creating a very good luck. This month will bring advances in terms of career and financial situation for all family members. Health-wise, do not overwork yourself and get enough rest because you might get sick easily. Try to work smarter rather than harder. Don’t over-activate this sector, at the risk of weakening the good luck that the Sum of Ten could bring you.


Avoid making too much noise in the West, at the risk of activating adverse energies here. Indeed, since the annual quarrelsome star is joined by the monthly illness star, they may cause conflict and tension in all your professional and personal relationships. This conflictual energy can be remedied with Metal energy.


Light a lamp in this area and place some Metal to control the afflicted Qi of the monthly quarrelsome star that creates tensions, conflicts and relationship problems, especially among teenagers. Excess Wood energy creates stress caused by disputes and quarrels. However, due to the presence of the annual star 4 education luck is good. The best way to use this combination of stars is to use your academic knowledge to generate wealth 😉


The monthly star 5 makes this an unfavorable sector and brings bad luck for a month to all people residing in the North or living in North facing houses. Wear metallic items if you have to conclude a major deal or if you enter an important period of your life. If your front door or bedroom are located here, avoid signing significant agreements and don’t make too much noise, at the risk of increasing your stress level.


The white star 1 flies into this sector and brings opportunities for your career. Activate it with Metal, not only to give your promotion luck a boost, but also to protect you against illness and accidents. Remember that throughout the year, it is recommended to those in the sector to take care of their health, especially their respiratory system. So make use of the Metal element here!
