I am a Filipino, born and raised in Dumaguete and now calls myself a Cebuano (been residing here for almost a decade now) and has a strong Chinese ancestry. My maternal great grandfather is pure Chinese that hails from the old Guangzhou province in China. That makes my mother 1/4 Chinese and me, 1/8 Chinese if there’s such a thing. Irregardless of the percentage, Chinese blood runs through my veins or say, it’s genetics. Too much of it, I am a believer of the classical Feng Shui (based in Ancient China) rather than the Western Feng Shui (influences of the Western countries).
What is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui literally means “wind” and “water”. It has something to do with the flow of energy (qi). Whether if one believes it or not, it is there. Energy is there. We can’t see it, but it’s there. We can even feel it. That’s why, I’m not appalled if no one would believe about the power of Feng Shui. We need balance and harmony in our life. That’s what feng shui is. And for those who believes in it, there’s nothing wrong. In the end, we are all after about prosperity, wealth luck, good health and a more positive outlook in life. However, there might be a need for protection.
Personally, as a fan and a believer of Feng shui, I would give more attention on the protection first before enhancing my luck options. I will tell you why as we move along.
If you have read my previous post, it’s about more of a general perspective of Feng Shui 2017. The kind of discipline I’m currently studying, learning and reading is the Annual Flying Star Feng Shui. It has the principles of Yin and Yang. It’s a tool to determine good luck and bad luck for a particular animal year. 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster. And it’s important that we check the specifics on how we apply Feng shui in a monthly basis. As stars change directions or say move monthly. Therefore, we now have the Monthly Flying Star. If we want a more accurate one like on a daily basis, it’s another Feng Shui discipline thought to be Destiny Science and is commonly called the Purple Star Astrology or Zi Wei Dou Shu. It’s known as Chinese fortunetelling. I’ve also read and has practiced it at some point in 2014.
Importance of the Monthly Flying Star
Feng shui is not just about putting things and symbols and just waiting for luck to shower us with graces and prosperity. No! We have to do our part. Work our ass off. Feng Shui is just 1/3 of our overall luck. As there are three kinds of luck! The Heaven’s Luck (the fortune we are born with) which is what the Christian’s believe as God’s plan and the Buddhist’s as Karma. Easy to say, our destiny. It’s nothing we can’t control. And there’s nothing to worry too, it’s all about doing good “deeds” and we will be fine. However, we have two other lucks. The Man’s Luck is basically us and our actions towards others, situations and opportunities. It’s more about the “free will” we are given. To choose what’s good or bad for us. Whatever we do, it will definitely have an effect on us. The third luck is Earth’s luck which is Feng Shui. And we have to be really careful when applying it. Especially if we are considering the Monthly Flying Star Feng Shui.
Heaven’s luck comprise of 40% of our lives.
Earths’ luck comprise of 35% of our lives.
Man’s luck completes it at 25% of our lives.
We can boost the effects of our Man’s and Earth’s luck together, that would actually sum up to 60% of our lives if we do the math.
If one is born with a “poor” heaven’s luck, then, there’s a need to double more and do Feng Shui as a personal advice.
The Annual Flying Star should be observed at the start of the year of the new animal sign. I have mentioned about sectors and the cures and enhancers in my previous blog post as our guide. But let’s be a bit specific, we have the Monthly Flying Star Feng Shui guide for us to follow.
If we search online or read books about Feng Shui, we will often see information about a yearly guide. Basically, it’s just an overview. Again, Feng Shui changes from time to time. So if we worry about building a house in the west, or having a main door facing the east is auspicious, let’s not be too confident. Yes, that’s what I’ve learned from Feng Shui experts. As Feng Shui changes from period to period. Which is why, we have the Monthly Flying Star guide to follow.
Feng Shui Important Sectors
There are three main points or sectors that we need to note when applying Feng Shui (traditional Asian way).
- Where the Main door faces. Not where the Main door is located. Use a compass to check where it is facing.
- The Bedroom.
- The sector, corner, or space we often use like our office workstation.
Monthly Flying Star for March 2017
So what will be the most inauspicious sector for this month? Like what I’ve said earlier, we always focus first on the things that needs protection or the sector that needs cure before anything else. This is very important! And let’s be cautious on the THREE IMPORTANT POINTS I mentioned above. If that area affects us because it’s either it’s where our main door is facing, our bedroom or most-used space is located, then, we need to apply Feng Shui cures.

Yes, that important!
After we have figured out what sectors that need protection, it’s about time to enhance the sectors where our luck is!

There you go, those who are thought to be “lucky” this month are those (considering the 3 important sectors) living in the Auspicious sectors and should definitely take advantage of it when they can. For the succeeding months, could be a bit challenging or who knows, might be the same. Will keep you posted!
In summary, we don’t need to get all enhancers or cures in a monthly basis (which is very important) if our main door, bedroom or most-used space is not afflicted by the inauspicious (bad luck) stars. However, there’s a need for us to consider the Annual Flying Stars. Again, only if the 3 points or sectors are afflicted. And if our animal sign is also afflicted in an Annual perspective.
Feng shui is also different from person to person depending on the birth month, time of birth, animal sign, and the elements of each sign. That’s why there’s a need to consult a Feng Shui expert or master that has specialization depending on what discipline in Feng Shui they have license to or/and is well-versed.
