THE AUSPICIOUS STARS
5 BIG & SMALL AUSPICIOUS STARS this year
Each year blesses us with a collection of Big and Small Auspicious Stars, and 2024 is no exception. These very lucky stars bring abundance, good news, prosperity and success, and the more of them you activate, the more good fortune luck you can actualize for yourself!
Big Auspicious luck manifests in the form of big breaks and grand windfalls; its effects are obvious and can mark a significant turning point in one’s life. Small Auspicious luck, while more discreet,can be just as meaningful when it ripens. Tapping into the fabulous energies of these stars ensures you are on the right track and motivates you to keep on pushing forward.
In 2024, 5 such stars are found around the compass wheel in the locations of NE1, NE3, E1, E3, and SW2.
To activate, display the Big Auspicious Mirror in each of these subsectors to capture their lucky vibrations. If your bedroom or main door is located in one of these subsectors, you should also carry the “Tai Kat Tai Ley” Amulet to enjoy its substantial blessings at all times. These stars also particularly benefit those born under the Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Sheep and Monkey signs this year.
STAR OF THE GENERAL in the North
The Star of the General enhances leadership luck and retains its location in North 1 this year. This star sharpens one’s intuition and helps one make wise decisions. An excellent star to activate for those in positions of leadership, and for anyone aiming for advancement of rank in one’s career, or in any organization or group setting. Anyone can capture its auspicious energies by placing the Period 9 Windhorse or Prosperity Flag with Dragon in the North sector of the home. This star especially benefits those born in years of the Rat.
GOD OF THE YEAR in the SE
The Grand Duke Jupiter or Tai Sui resides in Southeast 1 in 2024. Having the Tai Sui on your side makes everything go more smoothly for you through the year, which is why an important ritual at the start of each Chinese New Year is to ask for his blessings. To keep the Tai Sui on your side throughout the year, place the Dragon Pi Xie in the SE sector of your home, and carry the Tai Sui Amulet everywhere you go.
HEAVEN AND EARTH SEAL STARS in NW & SW
The Heaven Seal brings support from the heavens in the Northwest, while the Earth Seal brings earthly blessings in the Southwest. These are the sectors representing the patriarch and the matriarch respectively, hence doubly auspicious when activated. Place Namgyalma the Deity of Long Life and Purification in the Northwest, and the Jade Emperor Windchime in the SW. You can also carry the Heaven Seal & Earth Seal Talismans.
Wearing the Heaven & Earth Dzi Bracelet is extremely effective as well.
THE INAUSPICIOUS STARS
YIN HOUSE STAR in NE and SE
The Yin House Star emits yin energies that cause one to dwell on negative emotions and become more susceptible to spiritual disturbances. This year, it takes up 2 locations; Northeast 2 and Southeast 2. Keep bright lights switched on in these parts of the home to elevate the energies here. Place the Double Dragon Yang Energy Enhancer in these sectors to keep the energy continually revitalized.
REDUCING ENERGY STAR in the EAST
The Reducing Energy Star weakens inner chi, making it harder to get things done. In 2024, it resides in the East, affecting those born under the sign of Rabbit, and those living in East-facing homes and in East sector bedrooms the most. Carry the Amulet to Boost Reducing Energy to counter its negative effects. If you spend a lot of time in this part of the home, best to place the Yang Energy Plaque with Phoenix here to bring the energies back into balance.
ROBBERY STAR in the SOUTHEAST
The Robbery Star moves to Southeast, bringing danger of loss to those whose main doors or bedrooms are located here. If this applies to you, do enhance security measures and take extra precautions when you travel. Place the Elephant & Rhinoceros with Ksitigarbha’s Staff here and carry the amulet version when out and about.
NATURAL DISASTER STAR
The Natural Disaster Star in South 2 threatens natural calamities like floods, fires and earthquakes. Because it is accompanied by big scale material destruction, physical injuries and emotional distress, the appearance of this star must never be taken lightly. Remedy with the Door Guardians with Ksitigarbha’s Staff Plaque. Residents of South-facing homes and South sector bedrooms should keep the amulet version close.
THE THREE KILLINGS AFFLICTS THE SOUTH
The South is also afflicted with the Three Killings, which manifests as 3 types of misfortune – loss of wealth, loss of a loved one and loss of reputation. Place the Three Celestial Mirror here to keep it under control. If your home faces South or if your bedroom is located in the South, you should also carry the 28 Hums Travel Protection Amulet whenever you leave home.
YEARLY KILLINGS in the SOUTHWEST
The Yearly Killings takes up residence in Southwest 1, bringing killing chi that brings obstacles and misfortune. It negatively impacts one’s health and relationships, and severely dampens one’s wealth potential. Shield against its harmful projections by placing the Double Dragon Yang Energy Enhancer here.
YEARLY CONFLICT STAR in the NW
Northwest 2 plays host to the Yearly Conflict Star, which churns up disharmony, conflicts and misunderstandings. If your main door is located in the NW, disagreements between family members could occur more often. Calm the energies by placing the Trinity Of Apples here. Those with bedrooms in the NW should carry the Secret Friend Amulet in your animal sign to ensure no harm comes to any of your relationships. This will also boost friendship and networking luck, and ensure your alliances stay strong.
