One of, if not THE, most important system within feng shui practice is the Flying Stars Chart. This pertains to the movement of nine stars or energies, which change position each year. Depending on the star in a particular sector, it could indicate either good or bad fortune for the whole year. It’s highly advised to know in advance before a new year starts where these stars will be flying to, to take advantage of the positive energy and counteract or combat the negative energy. Feng Shui Grandmaster Lillian Too describes the Flying Star as one of the most powerful ways to quickly and effectively enhance your luck using Feng Shui.

Realistically, Flying Stars aren’t actually stars – they are not linked with either astrology or astronomy. Instead, they act as symbols of the energy that is present in a location.

A reliable compass to determine one’s basic directions and subdirections within a home or office is necessary to make sure of the accuracy of sectors to be affected, and to determine where to place feng shui cures or enhancing items. It is strongly suggested that you pay even more attention to the cures; neglecting them could mean dire consequences and could even render useless whatever favorable luck your enhancers could bring.

Please keep it real. The Flying Star affects everyone at a different degree. Bear in mind the Chinese philosophy of Tien Ti Ren - Heaven, Man and Earth’s Luck. Your life’s path (Heaven) indicates the fortune and luck you are born with – your karma, your destiny or your fate if you will. Use the Feng Shui knowledge (Earth) to lessen the effect of unfavourable energies in your environment. Your personal efforts (Man) to make the most of this Metal Rat year play an important role – put in your best in that important business proposal, take good care of yourself if you want to be a better half….

Note that the Stars change location annually so it's important to update your Feng Shui placement yearly. In addition to the Annual Stars, there are Monthly Stars too that shift location monthly, and daily stars that change every day. If you want even more control of your destiny and luck, do sign up for our free newsletter so you are kept up to date with the monthly 2020's flying stars forecast.



This 2020's annual Flying Star Feng Shui Chart becomes effective on February 4, 2020. The stars that are auspicious (green) should be activated and enhanced while the inauspicious (red) ones should be subdued and disarmed. With this information at your disposal, you are in control of your luck, because whether a star is good or bad, there are cures to strengthen or weaken its effects.

Superimpose the 2020 Flying Star chart onto your floor plan to clearly see the distribution of Flying Stars in your residence or office:


Keep in mind as you read each forecast, that the stars can have an effect on your life if any of the following situations apply to you:

1) The home/office facing that star’s direction. As an example, the #6 Star will affect you if your house faces the Southeast in 2020

2) If your entrance is located in that star’s sector (example, the #2 star affects you if your entrance is located in the South sector even if it is facing a different direction). Note that facing direction is different than location. Your maindoor's location may be in the West, but it could be facing Southwest (its direction).

3) The location of your bedroom can be affected (good or bad) if it is located in a star’s sector.

4) The star visits your Horoscope home location. If your sign, for example, is the Rabbit, the #5 Misfortune Star is in your location (the East) and this can bring bad luck to you.

Horoscope SignHome LocationHoroscope SignHome Location

5) It’s possible to determine the feng shui luck for your family, too. Each sector is associated with a family member according to the theory of the Feng Shui Bagua. For example, the Northwest corresponds to the patriarch. In 2020, he (father, grandfather, leader of an organization etc.) is bessed by the #8 Wealth Star that enters the Northwest this year.

Making the effort to overcome the inauspicious Flying Stars annually is very important. It is easy to implement but will greatly help to reduce misfortune and aggravations brought by them. There is no excuse for not doing so if you observe Feng Shui practices. For this year it is a good idea to have all your Feng Shui Cures in place before 4th February 2020. However, it is never too late to place your feng shui cures. Many of our clients still got great results even though they placed them towards the end of the year. Better be late than never.

Feng Shui Products Recyling
Products used in previous years can be reused although the strength of the cure is usually low and the remedy for this year should be stronger. New cures come with fresh stronger energy and we highly recommend that you get new ones if you can afford to. If you are recycling, re-energize your cures by washing them with natural sea or rock salt. Then let them stand in the great outdoors for three days absorbing the natural yang energy of the environement.

There are other strong feng shui afflictions you should be aware of in the year 2020. One of these is the Three Killings, also known in Chinese as “San Sha.” In 2020 this affliction is mainly in residence in the South sector, where any disturbances should be kept to a minimum. Do not undertake repairs, renovations or the digging of holes or foundations now, since this maintenance work will only make the negative energy worse. If maintenance or work absolutely must be undertaken in 2020, contact a feng shui advisor for help in suggesting cures or a more fortunate date to begin the work. Should the affliction be awakened, sickness, money loss or heated arguments could ensue. This is one of the worst of all the annual afflictions. Place a Golden Three Divine Guardians with Implements for 3 Killings, Golden Three Harmony Animals or 3 Celestial Guardians Plaque in the South. Horse-born and middle daughter should carry a 3 Celestial Guardians with Implements Keychain or Red Three Divine Guardians Keychain.

It’s advised to never sit with one’s back to the direction of the Three Killings. Face South in 2020, especially if this is your favorable direction according to your Kua Number.



The Tai Sui resides in the North sector in 2020. The area should be kept as peaceful as possible. Properties that face North or whose front door is in the North must use extra caution against slamming a door, and renovations should not be carried out in the North sector.

It’s advised to avoid facing the North direction as this will be confronting him and will incur his wrath - to avoid risk or loss, obstacles and defeat. Instead, sit with your back to his direction and the Tai Sui will be motivated to offer help. Find out what Feng shui cures to appease Tai Sui in the year 2020.


The Sui Po Year Breaker takes up the position opposite the Tai Sui Grand Duke, which in 2020 is the South sector. Avoid doing renovations in the area or any other noise-producing activities. Should the sector be disturbed it could lead to health problems, especially for those who are elderly.

Unfortunately, the #2 Illness Star is also in the South sector in 2020. This is another reason to keep the area quiet and peaceful, so as to not agitate it. If a garden or driveway is in the South sector it is especially key to avoid disturbances from digging or building repairs now.
