Flying Star Feng Shui and the Big Dipper
The word “Stars” is often used in Classical Feng Shui to refer to the type or body of Qi, and is symbolized numerically (e.g., 1 to 9) or by its Star name (e.g., Covetous Wolf, Military Career, etc.).
The Nine Stars in Flying Star Feng Shui essentially represent the energies we feel on earth that reflect the seven real astronomical stars of the Northern Ladle (or Big Dipper).
It is a part of the Great Bear (Ursa Major) constellation that includes two other invisible stars, also known as the two “Assistant Stars.”
The Northern Ladle is an important force in Classical Feng Shui because in the ancient days, it was seen as a giant universal clock in the heavens. It regulated the waxing and waning of the seasons, Yin and Yang, and the Five Elements.
These clusters of stars appear to point to and circulate around the Pole Star, also known as the Polaris. This star has a fixed point, very close to the North Celestial Pole (or the center of the stars), hence, the Chinese marked this as the center of the sky – or center of the universe – because it can be seen from anywhere, at any location, on earth.
