September 2018 Flying Stars (September 8-October 7)

What to Expect

Each month Stars ‘fly’ from sector to sector within a property.  This property can be your home or your office.  Reading these monthly forecasts allows you to benefit from the highs and avoid some of the pitfalls.  Always remember that a month is at most 31 days so a bad month in an annual good sector is not the end of the world.

Yin Metal Rooster (Xin You) in Autumn

Now moving into the middle of the Autumn season Rooster will keep us company throughout the month of September.  Rooster being a Metal animal holds the element of Metal front and centre.  Have you noticed a change in the atmosphere after one month of Autumn?  We have seen more incidents occurring both in nature and manmade.  Will the Rooster peck away and cause yet more disruption this month?  The first day of Xin You is September 8 which is a Gui Mao (Yin Water Rabbit) day.  Conflict on day one then as Rabbit (E2) and Rooster (W2) create a clash, appearing as they do opposite one another on the compass.

In the 24 seasons of the Chinese Calendar September 8-September 22 is known as White Dew and September 23-October 7 sees the Autumnal Equinox.

Do you have Rooster in your BaZi Chart?  Where does it appear?  Do you know its influence in your life? If you don’t know please  contact us and we will be happy to send you the information. 

Rooster has its location in W2 (262.5-277.4) around the compass and represents the hours between 17.00-18.59 in the 12 x 2 hours of the Chinese Zodiac.

Rooster is one of the Cardinal Animals and also a Peach Blossom Animal.  Can you take advantage of it to improve your likeability and attractiveness?  This can be on a personal level but also within your workplace and your circle of friends.

In 24 mountains Rooster has a clash relationship with Rabbit in E2 (82.5-97.4).   It is also part of the Metal frame along with Ox (Chou) in NE1 and Snake (Si) in SE3.

Were you born in the Year of the Rooster? What time of day was it?  If you were born between 17.00 and 18.59 your hour of birth will be Rooster.  Do you have Rooster anywhere in your BaZi chart?  Depending on its location (year, month, day, hour)  it will have a specific meaning for you.

If you do not know your Chinese animal year sign please contact us and we will be happy to send you the information including the influence the Rooster will have if it appears in your chart.

Southwest sector in September has the 6 Annual/4 Monthly which will give us a combination of ten.  Already a positive sector generally in 2018 this month will enhance its positivity even more.

The dominant and timely energies of Period 8 (8, 9 and 1 stars) are located in Southeast (8), Centre (9) and Northwest (1) for the year.

So what can we expect for each of the eight sectors in September 2018?

Do you know how to superimpose a Luo Shu Grid over the floor plans of your property?  Are you able to identify where your important sectors are located?  If not contact us and we will be happy to assist.  The important areas of any living space are the main door, kitchen (stove), bedroom and office/study room.   You can include the balcony in this if you live in a flat or condo.  These are the sectors to focus on when looking at the Monthly Flying Stars.

NORTH-Annual 5/Monthly 3: Resident Qi 1:                        With a combination of 5 Annual/3 Monthly here it does nothing to enhance this already negative location.  Which room of your house is here?  Are you working in this area in your office building?  Take care!  Do not spend time in the North if you can avoid it and be careful not to activate the North.  Joining the 5 Yellow here in September is the 3 Star of Disagreements.  3 Wood Star presents a controlling influence on the 5 Earth Star so there is nothing to be gained from spending time here.

SOUTH-Annual 4/Monthly 2: Resident Qi 9:                        Annual 4 Wood Star is joined by 2 Black Star of Illness in September.  Wood and Earth have a conflicting relationship so residents of the South could find illness rearing its head.  If you have your main door here and are not able to use an alternative entrance for the month at least avoid too much activity and keep lighting to a minimum.  Lights will tend to strengthen the 2 Earth Star thereby increasing the likelihood of illness striking.

WEST-Annual 2/Monthly 9: Resident Qi 7:                           The Monthly 9 Magnifying Star will enhance the Annual 2 Black Star of Illness for residents of the West this month.  If your bedroom is located here and you can move out for the month then do so.  This is especially important if you are already suffering from ill health.  Prevention is always better than cure, so if you are well and want to avoid accidentally activating this area stay away as much as possible.

EAST-Annual 7/Monthly 5: Resident Qi 3:                            With the Annual 7 Metal Star joined by the 5 Yellow Earth Star things could be better for the East.  On the positive side the Metal Star helps weaken the Earth Star – remember Metal is the dominant force during Autumn – so this will help alleviate the situation somewhat.  However never underestimate the 5 Yellow so be careful if you are working or sleeping in the East and do not activate the area.

NORTHWEST-Annual 1/Monthly 8: Resident Qi 6:            At last some good news you might say.  Yes indeed.  The 1 White Star and 8 White Star join forces in the Northwest in September.  Career, wealth opportunities and improvements in your business can all be positives to gain from working, or having your main door in the Northwest this month.  This could come at a price though…1 Water Star is in conflict with 8 Earth Star so although you can see gains they may arrive in ways that go against your principles.  You may find something murky lurking below the surface.  Be aware and keep control in all your undertakings.

NORTHEAST-Annual 3/Monthly 1: Resident Qi 8:             The combination of 3 Annual and 1 Monthly can bring with it an element of aggression.  Great if you are looking to get your name out there and known by more people in your career or business however you could find yourself upsetting someone along the way.  Only you can decide whether this is something you can live with for the month.

SOUTHEAST-Annual 8/Monthly 6: Resident Qi 4:              No negatives to this combination.  8 Annual and 6 Monthly are a great pairing.  Wealth combined with authority and help from others are some of the benefits you can look for in September.  Make full use of this area.  Work and/or sleep here (you may find sleep elusive though as your mind is working overtime) however it will all be directed in a positive way.  This pair also has a productive relationship with 8 Earth enhancing 6 Metal.

SOUTHWEST-Annual 6/Monthly 4: Resident Qi 2:            Another good combination sees the Annual 6 White Star joined by 4 Green Literary Star creating a sum of ten.  This is always a positive outcome so working/studying/sleeping in the Southwest can bring good results.  Students and those in the artistic fields will particularly benefit from this location so spend as much time as you can here to make the most of the month.

CENTRE-Annual 9/Monthly 7: Resident Qi 5:       9 Magnifying Star plus 7 Red Star = the centre

Remember if you leave well alone and do not activate a sector Stars cannot be disturbed and will have no effect on your day to day life.  Always check the external environment to ensure there are no negative structures likely to influence the energies of each sector.
