Flying Star Feng Shui introduces us to nine separate energies that inhabit our homes and offices. One of those nine is known as the 5 Emperor.
The Emperor above is obviously well cared for and seems to be happy enough. But, things can get tricky when he is disturbed.
If he’s happy, he may bring you money and power, or he may just peacefully sit there and watch your world. If he’s angry he can cause disaster. I like to compare him to a cranky old man. If he’s given what he likes…golden yellows, peace and respect….he’s good to have on your side. His energy is that of golden earth, rich and strong. His personality is that of an Emperor. Those he loves, he’s generous with. Those who cross him can be in danger.
So, how to we deal with this fellow? Well, first we have to find him. That’s where the Flying Star chart comes in. By using the year your house was built, and the direction it faces (down to the degree), we build a chart that shows us where all the stars are located, including the Emperor. Then we make sure the area is comfortable, quiet and not likely to be disturbed.
It’s important to decorate this area accordingly. This isn’t a place for decorative bamboo. Bamboo on the Emperor energy is like bringing a stick to poke him with. You’ll just make him mad, and we don’t want that!
A beautiful chiming clock will bring the sound of metal, calming the frayed nerves of “cranky old men”. Bring him beautiful sunflowers or golden tulips and paint the wall a golden yellow to make it fit for an Emperor. It’s much easier to please an Emperor than it is to recover from his wrath.
