People love predictions, whether they are derived from metaphysical sources or political analysts.
As a long-time Feng Shui practitioner, I get asked each year what the future holds and I can let you know some of the Feng Shui and Nine Star Ki headlines for 2023.
CHINESE ASTROLOGY THROUGH THE LENS OF FENG SHUI
In the Year of the Rabbit, we would hope this cute, approachable image of a bunny would in no way indicate World War 3 or anything remotely catastrophic, but there is always more to consider than just the “year branch.” From a Feng Shui stand point, we take some of the simpler notions and apply them to Feng Shui applications. For example, each zodiac sign is related not only to TIME, but also direction.
Watch Out for the Grand Duke’s Area
In the Year of the Rabbit, it is also the Rabbit Direction (of exactly East) which can be irritated. This is called the Tai Sui (or Grand Duke) and deemed not a good area for digging outside or remodeling inside. In order to know where the Rabbit Direction of dead-on east (90 degrees) is located in your own home, you will need to have a to-scale floor plan and know how to use a compass.
Are People Born in Year of Rooster at a Disadvantage in 2023?
Likewise, what is opposite the Rabbit is the Rooster. For my Feng Shui clients, they learn that people born in the Year of the Rooster may be at a disadvantage in the Rabbit Year. But rest assured, if their Feng Shui is good and stable, they can fare through the year much better. In fact, historically, Feng Shui and Chinese astrology were practiced together, along with Chinese medicine.
Tips for the Rooster Direction in 2023
The Rooster Direction of dead-on West is also a precarious direction for digging, demolition or remodeling in 2023. What if you have your bathroom or kitchen remodel already planned for the east or west in 2023? What if you plan to build a pool to the east in 2023 or your neighbor to the west does a massive remodel? These are the kinds of things I forewarn my clients about when doing annual update reports. If it is your own project, and it is going to take place in a bad year for that location, you can do certain counter-measures, which include picking at least the best month and day to start. This can off-set the bad yearly energy.
NINE STAR KI FOR 2023
Nine Star Ki tracks trends for the individual as well as big events which could affect a whole community or even global events. Nine Star Ki pre-dates Feng Shui, but uses the vernacular of “Nine Stars” which we refer to as well in Flying Star Feng Shui. There is a huge difference in the interpretation of the stars, and yet they have some similar origins, where it becomes more obvious where there is a connection. For example, the Nine Star Ki 2 Star is related to food, farming, land, or a kitchen. In Feng Shui, the 2 star is related to digestion. So we can see the connection between the two systems in this one example.
Nine Star Ki originated as part of Chinese metaphysics. In the 19th century, the Japanese Nine Ki scholars and masters took it to a whole other level and this is why some even call Nine Ki a “Japanese” form of astrology. Astrology is not really a correct or precise term for Nine Ki, but it approaches astrology as a predictive art.
Potential Events in 2023
In 2023, the trend for the year is noted with the “center” star, which is the same as the center star in Feng Shui. It will be the 4 star in the center of the luo shu. Quite a few seemingly unrelated attributes are implied with the 4 star. This includes “documents.” It might be a year when documents become more newsworthy. Whether it’s a continuation of the “Twitter Files” or Constitutions of various countries, we may see more documents making the News. The 4 star is also related to aircraft and space craft. To that, we may see more plane crashes or changes within the airline industry. We may get more disclosure about UFO’s, which are now being referred to as UAP’s. (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.)
