Feng Shui Mirrors

Mirrors can be used as feng shui enhancers. Mirrors in the right positions can create excellent feng shui. Using mirrors to reflect good luck symbol to enhance auspicious energy. For example, placing one mirror in your crowd shop can make your shop “bigger” and “double” your customers.

Mirrors can be used as feng shui remedies. Placing mirrors in the walls of the missing corners can fix the missing corners and balance the uncompleted shape. Make sure not let the mirrors face to the door, hallway, stairs or toilets. Mirrors also can be wrapped around the columns to block the “Sha Chi” generated from the columns.

Mirrors can be used as feng shui cures. Mirrors can reflect bad chi back to its original. If your house faces to street, electric pole or something sharp corners, hanging one feng shui mirror above the main door is the excellent cures to it. Remember not to display mirror directly in the back or side of your bed. Mirror in the back or side of your bed will let you feel unsafe and like in hypnosis sometimes.

What are the meanings of combination of the Yearly Flying Star and Monthly Flying Stars?
There will be 2 flying stars in each location – one represents year flying star and the another stands for month flying star. The yearly flying star in one location doesn’t change during that year. But the monthly flying star changes monthly in that specific location.

If one location comes with two good flying stars together, it will be very good in that location for that month. On the another hand, it will be very bad if two bad flying stars come together. Followings are some meanings of combination 2 flying stars:

  • Flying stars #3 and #2 together, it will be more argument
  • Flying stars #5 and #2 together, more sickness will happen
  • Flying stars #3 and #7 together, be careful injury
  • Flying stars #6 and #7 together, lawsuits and robbery will happen, such as getting ticket
  • Flying stars #7 and #9 together or Flying stars #7 and #2 together, be careful fire
  • Flying stars #4 and #1 together, Flying stars #1 and #6 together, career promotes or good things happens
  • Flying stars #6 and #8 together, be good for wealth
  • Flying stars #8 and #9 together, be good for marriage luck

The flying stars affect the main door the most. Second they affect bed room, office, eating table and kitchen. Therefore we usually focus our main door and check what two flying stars are during some specific time. First we need to know where the main door locates, then go to the yearly flying star map to find out the year flying star in that location, next go to the monthly flying star map to find out the month flying star for that time and that location.

2012 Flying StarsWe take 2012 flying star as example shown as the map on the left.

Example 1: Main door is in SE location and time is from Feb. 5, 2012 to Mar. 6, 2012. From the yearly flying star, we know the year flying star is flying star #5 and the monthly flying star is #4 from map 1. If main door is in South instead, there will be flying star #1 and #9 instead.

Example 2: Main door is in SE location and time is from Apr. 5, 2012 to May 6, 2012. The yearly flying star will be same as #5 and monthly star will change to #2 (from Map 3). If the main door in South location, there will be flying star #1 and #7.

From the meanings of combination, we know #5 and #2 will cause sickness. Therefore people whose main door in SE will easily get sick from Apr. 5, 2012 – May 6, 2012. By the same reason, people whose main door is in North will easily get sick from Jul. 7, 2012 – Aug. 8, 2012.
