Nine Star Ki Revisited

Categorizing energy as numbers and natural elements originated in the ancient teachings of Taoism and the I Ching (The Book of Changes). A lot of cool stuff stemmed from those teachings; Feng Shui, Acupuncture, Shiatsu, and Macrobiotics, to name a few.

Nine Star Ki is one of those cool things as well. It is sometimes referred to as Feng Shui Astrology. Nine Fab Stars is a simplified, playful adaption of this ancient modality.

Your Star Archetype

The year of your birth defines your Star Archetype. There are nine different archetypes. Your Star Archetype is your Energy Blueprint. Some of us are even-tempered, and some of us are buzzing like bees trapped in a glass jar. Some like early mornings and others hate them. Your success looks different from mine, and happiness comes in many forms. It makes no sense to use the same formula for everybody or trying to force yourself into someone else’s mold

Your House

As you travel through time, at any given time, your Star will occupy different houses and rooms with their specific energy. That energy will interact with your inherent energy.
Each year has its vibe, each, month, day, hour, minute, second, nanosecond, and ……ok, you get the drift.

    • The Global (yearly) House.
    • The Global (monthly)  Room.
    • Your (yearly ) House.
    • Your (monthly) Room

    2023 is a #4 Green Wood Year

    YIN & YANG

    Balance is the goal

    Yin and Yang explaines the nature of all things in relation to each other. Hot is more Yang than cold. Darkness is more Yin than light. 


    Energy is everything

    Chi or Ki is Chinese and Japanese for energy or life-force.


    Nine stars / Nine locations

    Numerological charts to explain how Chi moves through time. Each of the 9 Star Archetypes are constantly moving through the  9 different positions of the Bagua.


    How you feel

    Your Child Star number is defined by the month of the year that you were born. There are 9 different Child Stars. This results in 81 different combinations (9 Star Archetypes  x 9 Child Stars = 81).


    How you vibe

    The five elements; wood, water, earth, metal, and fire, are used to explain the different types of chi, and how the elements relate to each other. They are either in a supporting or controlling position. 

    About the Author

    I was first introduced to Yin and Yang and the 5 elements while taking a course in Macrobiotic cooking. Later on I got somewhat obsessed with Feng Shui and Nine Star Ki. I continued my exploration of the 5 elements by studying and working as a Shiatsu therapist for two decades.

     I created this site mostly for fun. It’s not exactly traditional Nine Star Ki, but it follows the same principles. I hope you enjoy using the most fab time management tool ever.
