For those who are curious, we have already begun entering into the year of the Yin Earth Pig. In general, the pig (or boar), in Chinese culture is seen as a sign of prosperity. Being a Yin year, the energy in general is said to be more gentle, relaxed, and favorably prosperous in various areas of life for most. By the way, the Chinese New Year starts on February 5th, 2019.
If you were born in: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043, you are under the sign of the pig.
According to the Chinese astrological system, those born under the zodiac sign being celebrated, tend not to receive much luck. Instead, they receive lessons and challenges (which could be an opportunity for self evolution if you choose to perceive it that way). With this noted, if you are born under the pig sign, 2019 may bring emotional ups and downs, making you feel frustrated at times. You could refer to this as, ’growing pains.’ To help navigate these possible experiences, it’s important to be open to change and embrace it. Keep this phrase in mind, “what you resist, will persist.”
The energy of this year welcomes better problem solving. So, if you’ve had certain situations that have come up repetitively, the energy of this year could offer an extra boost to finally resolve it or at least move you in the right direction. You could also earn more recognition for your hard work and efforts, yet be sure the attention you receive is for good reasons. To further better your luck in 2019, its recommended to attend positive events and visit with truly supportive family and friends.
The Flying Stars chart provide annual, monthly, daily or even hourly forecasts. The chart you see above is annually.

It’s important to note, locating the actual directions within your home is needed for this particular practice of Feng Shui.

Below are key recommendations for the 2019 annual flying stars chart:
#2 STAR NORTH-EAST ILLNESS AND DISASTER:
This star stirs up health problems. Its recommended to place a metal object that holds the symbolism of good health and deflecting away negative energy. Connect with an metal item that you truly resonate with. For example, in my home I have a metal statue of Ganesh, who is known for removing obstacles.
Be sure to utilize the salt water cure, which helps to dissipate and clear away negative energy. You could also implement the cure for star #5.
Salt Water Cure Ingredients:
- Fill up a glass jar; with table or rock salt to about three quarters full.
- Place six coins on top of the salt in a circle. Make sure the coins are Yang side up; this is the side with the four Chinese characters. Don’t worry if the coins sink into the salt as you pour the water.
- Fill the jar to the top with tap water. It would be a good idea to place a mat under the jar to protect furniture or flooring.
- The jar will form crystals over time; this shows that it is working to absorb the negative energy.
- Make sure the water is always topped up.
- Do not cover the top of glass/container. Allow the salt water to be exposed to the air.
- Try not to touch or move the jar too much as it stores a lot of negative energy.
