Richmond, VA:  If you have an entry door or office in the northwest or east corner of your building, your staff and business will experience more illness and accidents in 2005 due to the annual negative flying stars that have settled there for the year.  However, you can easily cure them and not experience their negativity.

According to the Flying Star school of feng shui, all buildings have “natal charts“ with patterns of energy. The compass degree the building faces and the year it was constructed determine this pattern which has an impact on the business and people working in the building in both positive and negative ways.  In addition to the natal chart energies, transient annual energies move and settle for a year‘s visit in different compass directions and the center of buildings.   There are nine different energies. Some are negative, some are positive and they all shift to their new annual locations each year on February 4th.  We are affected by the energies when we activate them by spending time working, sleeping or using an entry door where they are located.

The 5 Yellow flying star causes illness and accidents and is now located in the northwest. The 2 Black causes illness and is in the east. What kind of effect will these negative energies have on your business in 2005? You can take a historical look at where these negative energies were in years past to see how they affected your business.  Their effect will be the same in 2005 as it was in 1996.  It takes the nine different flying stars nine years to travel through each compass direction and center of buildings. The chart below shows their locations over the last nine years. Take a look at their previous locations to see when they were located at your entry door and staff work areas and compare them to you records on staff sick days and accidents.
2004 5 Yellow in center, 2 Black in southwest
2003 5 Yellow in southeast, 2 Black in north
2002 5 Yellow in east, 2 Black in south
2001 5 Yellow in southwest, 2 Black in northeast
2000 5 Yellow in north, 2 Black in west
1999 5 Yellow in south, 2 Black in northwest
1998 5 Yellow in northeast, 2 Black in center
1997 5 Yellow in west, 2 Black in southeast
1996 5 Yellow in northwest,  2 Black in east

To accurately determine their locations in your office, you'll need to draw a floor plan and divide it into the eight compass directions.  Mark the center spot on the floor plan. Take the floor plan with you to the center spot in your office. Line up the floor plan you are holding with the actual office space.  Place a compass on the center spot on the floor plan you are holding and mark on the floor plan where each of the eight compass directions fall on the floor plan.  Once you determine where the annual energies are with your floor plan you can place your cures.  The 5 Yellow can be drained by adding a metal wind chime with six hollow rods and a salt water cure* in the northwest.  The 2 Black can also be remedied by using a salt water cure* and healthy green plants in the east. *A salt water cure can be made by using a 12-16 ounce mason jar filled half with sea salt, half with water.  Add 6 pennies and one dime. Cover with foil and punch holes in the foil to vent.  At the end of the year, dispose of the cure in your outside trash.

Keeping track of the annual movement of the energies will help you stay healthier and wealthier. And of course it is very important to know the flying star natal chart of your office as it has an impact on your busines too.  In her book Creating A Haven: Simple Steps For A Healthy And Nurturing Home, author Robyn Bentley has calculated the flying star natal charts and cures for all buildings built between 1924 and 2024.  The information can be used for both homes and offices.
