I was sure my Star Archetype was Marshmallow Unicorn!

THE ORIGIN OF NINE STAR KI

9 Star Ki is sometimes called Feng Shui astrology. It uses numerological charts and the five elements; wood, water, earth, metal, and fire to explain how energy moves in different situations.

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

STAR ARCHETYPES, NUMBERS & ELEMENTS

The year of your birth defines your Star Archetype. There are nine different archetypes. The year of your birth determines your star archetype. So for example 2017 was a #1 White Water Year. People born that year will grow up to be wise and intuitive. That’s why they are called #1 Oracles. Their element is White Water.

Their element is water, hence they might chill you down like winter in Siberia, or make their opinion heard like a thunderstorm on a tin roof. The house they occupied in 2017 is called The #5 House of Karma. Its element is Yellow Earth.

2018 was a #9 Purple Fire Year because the # 9 Rock Stars occupied the #5 House of Karma. Their element is Purple Fire. See the pattern here?! People born in a fire year will grow up to be attractive, intelligent, and full of light.

They might also get high on crack and steal your favorite pony. It takes two 9-year cycles to get to the pony stealing stage.

2020 is a #7 Red Metal Year. The people born this year are creative, diplomatic and beautiful. Read more about the current year here.

CHILD STAR NUMBERS 

Your Child Star number is defined by the month of the year that you were born. 

So back to the story. While our aspiring rock star is still growing, she’ll be more influenced by her child star, which gets its energy from the month of the year she was born.

Sometimes people experience some seriously messed up music in their childhood. This will affect the natural energy patterns. If that happened to you, you might still remember how it made you grow up faster. So fast, in fact that you took on your archetype star energy.

That was a way to cope with all the adult stuff that was coming at you. When you finally become an adult for real, you might revert to acting and reacting more as your child star.

But even if you had a wonderful childhood, you’ll be a mix of your archetype star, and your child star. Just as there are 9 different archetypes, there are also 9 different child stars. Altogether there are 81 different combinations (9 Star Archetypes  x 9 Child Stars = 81). 

So even though there are 81 different combinations, there are only nine archetypes. Let me put it like this; the same way that you can make a different tasting Martini with just two ingredients, Gin and Vermouth, two people with the same number combination will both be a delicious Martini, but taste different depending on where and how the Gin is distilled.

Well, something like that.

You’ll find out more about your archetype – child number combination once you’ve clicked on your year of birth.

YOUR MONTHLY AND YEARLY HOUSE 

Besides your star element, you need to take into account the energy of the yearly and monthly houses.

The yearly house is like a plain cheesecake, and the monthly house is like the fruit you’re having with it. The cheesecake will be the same all year, but the topping will change every month.

As you travel through time, at any given time, you’ll occupy different houses with their specific energy. That energy will interact with your inherent energy type. Each year has its energy, each, month, day, hour, minute, second, nanosecond, and ……ok I’m sure you get it.

RECAP 

  • Your Star Archetype is based on the year you’re born.
  • Your Child Star is based on the month of the year you’re born.
  • Each Star Archetype changes their Yearly House on February 4th.
  • Each Star Archetype changes their Monthly House in the beginning (day 4-8) of every month.
