Hopefully you already have your tickets for my annual upcoming Feng Shui Extravaganza events in Singapore and/or KL or both! This year brings lots of interesting information, some of which is vital to all of you so I do hope to see you there.
If you’re a Rooster, like me, or a Rabbit, then things are looking pretty good for the year ahead. In this week’s ezine I’ve given you some hints as to what’s in store according to the 24 Mountain Chart. The rooster has 3 Big Auspicious Stars, which is just amazing and 2 Big Auspicious Stars on either side flank the rabbit. Many of the other signs also benefit this year like the dog and dragon…and the key thing to know how to activate the auspicious stars so that you can reap the benefits.
Likewise, if you are an ox or horse, sheep or rat this year the stars of the 24 mountains are afflictive…but there are always remedies to take care of the problem. I’ll be sharing all the remedies and going into this in much greater detail at the extravaganzas!
Be sure to get your horoscope books and new coloring planner. In the next week we’ll be announcing all the rules of the coloring contest and how you can enter!
Sending love from Malaysia
Understanding the 24 Mountain Stars
I always get lots of questions about the 24 Mountain Stars so today I’ll try to answer some of your questions:
Why Do the Mountain Stars Change Each Year? Every lunar New Year, the mountain stars that fly into the 24 directions of the astrology compass wheel change, as do the nine numbers in the Flying Star Chart.
The new stars each year bring fresh perspectives to the fortunes of the different animal signs – take a look at the chart below. Some of the stars bring strong negative energy – they are the killing stars. There are also conflict stars and yin house stars that bring danger…but all these afflictive energies can be dissolved using the right remedies.
What are the Super Auspicious Stars? These are stars that bring good fortune, windfalls of luck and cosmic abundance that can enhance your life greatly. The key of course is to activate them to manifest good fortune. Locate your animal sign in the chart below to determine the stars affecting your horoscope sign.
Are there more than 24 Stars? Yes, there are 108 different mountain stars and 24 of them fly into the compass wheel each year. In the coming Year of the Monkey, there are a lot of auspicious stars, both large and small that bring the promise of good fortune to many of the animal signs in 2016. In fact, the coming year bodes very well for certain animal signs…particularly the rooster who enjoys three Big Auspicious Stars, the rabbit who is flanked on either side by Big Auspicious Stars, the monkey and the dog also benefit partially as do the tiger and the dragon. In other words, certain animal signs will benefit just from being in the vicinity of the big auspicious stars.
When you look at the 24 Mountain compass wheel, you’ll notice that five Big Auspicious Star are located in the East-West Axis. So if your home is oriented East/West, or your bedrooms or in either of these sectors then there is a chance of something quite significant and beneficial in store for you in 2016.
Study the chart above. The influence of the 24 Mountain Compass Wheel brings an additional method of looking at the luck of each of the animal horoscope signs in 2016.

Activate Your Seven Chakras For Vitality
CHAKRA is a Sanskrit word that means “wheel”. Those that can see them, describe chakras as spinning wheels of light that glow and spread outwards. The magnificence of the radiating colours reflects the strength of a person’s inner chi, the clarity of one’s thoughts and the purity of one’s attitudes. Chakras are concentrations of focused energy that have both mental and spiritual power. When we activate and balance our chakras, we stimulate the optimum release of powerful energies, which give rise to feelings of well-being, good health and enhanced mental clarity.
Chakras are a core belief of many meditative practices, spiritual and religious and have been incorporated into many new age practices…although the Chakra system was first developed in India in the middle ages.
When our chakras are unhealthy, blocked or unbalanced they lead us to make unwise decisions and often make us unhappy or depressed. Ideally chakras should be active and spinning at a similar rate to each other…but most of us have some chakras that are overactive and others that are closed down or underactive and require stimulation. When stimulated, blockages that subvert the flow of inner chi will dissolve, helping to release mental pressure and negative emotions.
Advocates of chakra stimulation feel that unless this is done, your mind and emotions can create resistance within the inner systems of your body so that eventually these blockages assume physical proportions lodging in whichever physical area of the body is most vulnerable. This is what gives rise to disease and illness.
Stimulating Your Chakras
Highly attained yogics use meditative equipoises and their methods reflect their high levels of mental and spiritual attainments known as siddhic powers. These are not readily available to ordinary folk like us unless you are studying with a realized guru or lama.
However, we can use simple calm-abiding meditation and other visualization techniques to achieve some small stimulation of our chakra centers, which will bring enormous health and spiritually awakening benefits. We can focus our conscious awareness onto the seven chakra points located at different vital places of the body.
The method is to visualize coloured light at the chakra area, but you can also use coloured crystals to activate the chakra. Place the crystals on the point while lying down flat on your back, feeling relaxed and visualize the colour radiating outwards. Crystals, being symmetrical in their molecular structure, radiate energy in a consistent and steady manner and are therefore an excellent way to create a healing flow around the chakras.
Each chakra responds to a special colour and to crystals of corresponding colours that are placed at the chakra points.
Until Next Week,
Grand Master Lillian Too is undoubtedly the world’s most prolific and popular writer and advocate on living with good feng shui! She has written over 100 books that have been translated into 31 different languages, and over 10 million copies of her books have been sold worldwide.
After graduating with an MBA from Harvard Business School, Lillian went on to pursue a highly successful business career in banking and finance in the 1980’s in Hong Kong. Her business acumen, drive and abundant energy soon led her from the finance world to the world of luxury department stores and boutiques where, through a leveraged buy out, she became Chairman and shareholder of The Dragon Seed Group.
All the while she was guided and taught by her feng shui masters in Hong Kong and China – and she attributes much of her monumental and quick rise to success in Hong Kong directly to them.
Lillian soon decided to retire from active corporate life and return to Malaysia to raise her beautiful daughter, Jennifer, and spend more time with her family. It was at this time she began to devote her energy to writing and furthering her study of feng shui.
She published her first book in Malaysia in 1995 that quickly became a best seller and the rest is history. Today she is Chairman of Wofs.Com, a feng shui franchise and merchandising company run by her daughter, Jennifer Too.
She trains feng shui students and future consultants at her Certified Consulting Institute in Malaysia and is much loved by her readers, associates and students for the way she teaches practical feng shui in a user-friendly way, using ordinary situations and circumstances that interest people and affect their everyday lives.
In November 2009, at the International Feng Shui Convention in Singapore, the well-deserved title of GRAND MASTER OF FENG SHUI was conferred upon Lillian Too. Immediately following this accolade, in early January 2010, she received the prestigious Brand Laureate Personality of The Year Award presented by the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia! There seems to be no stopping her popularity and these days!
Lillian believes everyone should know her secrets and learn how to adapt feng shui to modern life… and she warmly welcomes you into her Mandala.

Keep It Simple
One of the most basic, yet vital points in feng shui, is the way energy flows in any given room in your home. When spatial harmony exists, the drift of energy will be slow, circuitous and auspicious. Therefore it is important not to over furnish or over decorate…and try not to let pieces of furniture jut out and create sharp edges (poison arrows). Getting this one major thing right (spatial harmony in the home) will do wonders towards bringing you a life of prosperity and well-being.
The mind is eternal and will continue to exist even when the material body dies. So the mind lives through past and future lifetimes. The mind is transcendental, mystical and magical. It is sacred, not of this realm and works from the inner dimensions of the spirit! Your mind is part of the cosmic universe.
