I am no Feng Shui Master but I love both Feng Shui and Star Wars and while watching the latter from the first episode, I find it very amusing to notice a very close similarity between the two, which is the goal to maintain balance. In Feng Shui, it is balancing the energies from Five Elements which are wood, fire, earth, metal and water, while in Star Wars, simply balancing the Force.
Another similarity between the two is the prominence of stars, though of course there is war among the stars in Star Wars while in Feng Shui, there is clashing of elements between the “Flying Stars” and the locations at times.
Having worked as a computer programmer and systems analyst in the past, I dealt with a lot of logics and logic is now one of my basic guiding principles in life that was why I had appreciated the logical cycles of the Five Elements very much, which are also basic principles of the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.
For 2016, those mindful of Feng Shui would know by this time that the good stars 1, 6 and 8 will be flying to all the southern locations, Southeast, South and Southwest, respectively. Those locations are localized to the homes, the whole house in general, and each part of the house.
On the other hand, all the “evil stars” will be flying to the North locations. Star 3 or the “Argumentative star” will fly to the Northwest, Star 7 or “Robbery star” flies to the North while the “5 Yellow Misfortune star” flies to the Northeast. The good news is there is not much to worry because the elements of the locations they will be flying to contradicts the element nature of each of these evil stars, weakening them, except for Star 5.
To elaborate on the nature of these elements, Argumentative Star 3 is Wood flying to a Metal location which is Northwest, and everyone knows what a metal can do to wood. Robbery Star 7 is Metal flying to a Water location which can overpower or exhaust the Metal (like what happens when metal pipes are not enough to control the water). Lastly, the 5 Yellow Misfortune Star is "at home" in the Northeast since the element of this location is Earth, the same element of the 5 Yellow Star and that means it will be a strong star. One or more antidotes are needed in this case, though if your bedroom is in this location, the easiest solution is to transfer to another bedroom for 2016.
Though I mentioned there is not much to worry about Argumentative Star 3 and Robbery Star 7, be wary about their presence as well as the presence of elements that can provoke or support their nature. An example of an antidote for the Argumentative Star is the "Flaming Sword" figurine or keychain, which suggests the combination of metal and fire, both overpowering the Wood, the element of the Argumentative Star.
Each one of us need to take care of ourselves and pray a lot since the Illness Star 2 is at the center location making all of us prone to illnesses this 2016. A positive disposition and prayers will be the best antidotes for the evil stars, though balanced elements can of course produce a positive outcome. If you want more antidotes or activators of the good stars, in the Philippines you may go to the Feng Shui booth of my friend Feng Shui Master Hanz Cua in Shangrila Plaza.
