It is important to start thinking about the upcoming Period 9 Feng Shui era as it is just around the corner. In fact, we are now in Feng Shui period 8 (2004–2024), and period 9 starts in 2024. The current Feng Shui period’s energies are starting to wane. As a result, it is a fantastic opportunity for you to get a sneak peak of what to expect. To understand the energy of the era 9 ahead, you will need to know the dominating force we’ll be facing.
Before we dig deeper, every 20 years, once a period ends, trends and society itself experience changes. In the Feng Shui Period 8, the earth element was dominant. Therefore, we saw a huge trend in real estate and other earth-related industries. In this article, we will take a look at the future trends in business, personal behavior traits, and, of course, your home. What will tomorrow bring? Let’s find out!
Characteristics of the Period 9 Fire Star
The color purple and the middle daughter are both connected with the fire star. It is also tied to the heart, small intestine, eye, tongue, and chest organs. The characteristics of the fire star are as described in the following: Its energy is swirling upward and outward at its peak point, a radiant expansion fading momentarily.
Looking at the Period 9 Feng Shui trigram, the outside energy spills left and right, but it remains steady and tranquil. Because the star is associated with exposure, buried or outdated patterns are revealed. High-intensity events are possible, but they will be brief. The top and bottom are both Yang, yet the interior is still Yin.
The element of fire is associated with passion, zeal, sophistication, sociable, bravery, and enthusiasm. People, especially middle-aged women, will be concerned more about their social status and the image of attractiveness they reflect to the rest of the world. Females will have a greater influence in all aspects of society.
The Period 9 Feng Shui Trends
There is a lot of discussion going on about whether the Period 9 Feng Shui really starts in 2024 or if the Period 9 I-Ching in 2017 has already rung the bells for the new era. From my observation, 2020 is a good medium average of both to consider.
Since the start of COVID in 2020, we have seen a lot of digital advancements in doing virtual meetings via Zoom, working at home has become the new norm, and many other digital services have taken off. Even more, the development of new DNA/RNA vaccines (biotechnology) are just a few hints that we have already started to enter the new era.
Digitization in Period 9
Period 9 Feng Shui is all about digitization. We enter an era where digital trends take over traditional ways of doing things. Let’s take, for example, cloud computing. In the future, there will be no need to store much data on a local PC as everything is done via the cloud. Another great example is the disappearance of psychical money. Many central banks (see China) are already implementing digital “crypto”-currency as the payment method of the future. Dollar bills and coins become an antiquated sight that can only be seen in a museum.
In dribs and drabs, biotech will take over traditional medicine. Take the pizer COVID vaccine approach as one example. The new technology includes DNA to tackle viruses.
No doubt, that these quickly new developing technologies to make our lives easier, faster, and more efficient. However, our human relationships might become even more distant because of social networks and the meta-verse that will thrive. At least in big cities, the world of work will change dramatically.
The idea of a remote workforce has been gaining popularity since the COVID pandemic. A lot of companies have focused on hiring the best talent regardless of location, and employees value the freedom to work from anywhere. Remote working is no longer an option for many companies; it’s mandatory. Employees will continue working remotely when the pandemic is over.

Biotech in Period 9
In dribs and drabs, biotech will take over traditional medicine. Take the Pfizer COVID vaccine approach as one example. The new technology includes DNA to tackle viruses. In fact, biotechnology has already made major advancements. Please consider that 90% of cancer research is now based on biotech. Also, the drug research industry is now called “gene therapy.” These are just two examples, but they illustrate a pattern: as biotech becomes more advanced and its tools become cheaper, it’s increasingly able to take over entire areas of medicine. This process will be gradual, but in the end, it’ll be pervasive.

Health in Period 9
The fire element represents the heart, small intestine, eye, tongue, and chest organs in the Feng Shui Period 9. The heart is located in the center of the body and reigns supreme over all other organs. It controls the blood flow, consciousness, and emotions. Next, the small intestine is the bodyguard that separates the pure from the impure food intake.
Third, the tongue has the ability to taste and is also closely connected to the heart. Make sure to eat foods that stimulate saliva production. Fourth, the eyes are often called the master of 100 diseases. Please make sure that you do not overuse them in this digital age. Take time away from all digital devices and enjoy nature. Finally, the chest organs are important for breathing purposes, so try not to smoke or drink too much alcohol, and do more exercise outdoors for fresh air.
Take extra precautions to ensure that all the vulnerable organs mentioned function properly during this fire period. They must be nourished and protected very well.
Spirituality, Religion in Period 9
In the Feng Shui Period 9, people will reflect on their lives and look more deeply into themselves. Common questions might be “what exactly do you want out of life?” People search more for answers to ultimate questions about life, such as “Who am I?” or “What lessons do I have to learn in this life to advance my soul?”
Curiosity about their own personal growth and self-improvement will explode. Someone who is deeply devoted to their religion might seek the path to the ultimate state of peace, joy, and love, also called enlightenment. The word originated from the German language, meaning “remove the veil of darkness to see the light of fire”.
People who benefit the most are: religious heads (monks priest), psychologist, psychic, spiritual coach, meditation, yoga, martial arts instructor ( Tai-chi, Qigong), acupuncturist, chiropractor, massage therapist
Beauty and Film in Period 9
We are about to enter a new era of digital entertainment where actors will be able to play any role imaginable, regardless of age, gender, nationality, or limitations of the physical world in general. There are already multiple companies developing software to create digital actors and actresses. Now, you can meet your new favorite digital star right at home inside the metaverse without trying to play paparazzi in real life.
Now, thanks to advances in technology, you can have your own avatar that looks exactly like you. Or at least, as close as possible. You can even buy virtual fashion and makeup to dress up your own digital self, and you can even visit virtual fashion shows with ease.
It’s possible that virtual reality cinema will arrive sooner than we anticipate. The latest entertainment technology allows you to enjoy the big screen experience from the comfort of your own home. Yes, you can now watch the most recent movies while still in your pyjamas.
As previously stated, women are becoming increasingly concerned about their appearance. The cosmetics sector will benefit greatly. Hair stylists, manicures, various beauty treatments, and cosmetics companies making and marketing are all jobs associated to this trend.
Period 9 Feng Shui industry that benefit the most
The Star 9 can be found in the Luo Shu Square in the South. Any area or country located in the southern sector will see a huge uplift in prosperity. You will see that, for example, Australia will prosper. For large capital gains, invest in companies that are directly associated to the fire element and are located in the southern sectors.
The Period 9 Feng Shui industry that most will benefit are the oil and gas companies, beauty, anything related to the film industry (actors, models), public relations, interior design, photography, modeling, fashion, painting (arts in general)
On the flip side we can also see more oil related environmental disasters such as gas leaks, oil spills, or fire blaze. As fire is also related to soldiers, riots and coups are a possibility.
What can I do to prepare?
Although it is still time, the transitional energy is also felt today. Some things you can already do today to get prepared:
Review your professional life, career, and finances: Review your job. It is still relevant to the upcoming Fire Element. If not, try to advance your knowledge, be creative, and think outside the box. Maybe it is time for a career change to take advantage of the many growing industries under the Fire Element.
- Examine your health, eating, and exercise habits: If you are a strong fire Bazi element from your birth chart, surround yourself with more controlling elements to cool you down. For example, eat more fish or drink more water or you are prone to suffering from high blood pressure, heart attack, or stroke.
- Examine your life goals and objectives for achieving them: Goal setting is an important part of living a life of contentment. If you don’t have goals, it can be difficult to see how far you’ve come or how much progress you’ve made in life. In turn, this can leave you feeling dissatisfied and unhappy with your life.
- Take a look at your interpersonal relationships: If you’ve noticed that your relationships aren’t as good as they could be, try improving your communication skills can help.
- Reflect yourself and know your true self: It represents your innermost feelings, your deepest needs and desires, your true self that is still hidden. Take the time to focus on yourself and learn who you really are.
- Business owners should apply the fire element to their company: If you are not already in a fire element related business, try to implement your strategy so that the element can become a part of your business. For example, if you are in retail (water element), you can start selling to your customers through the Internet.
Feng Shui Period 9 Auspicious Direction (Direct and Indirect Spirits)
In this period, the Feng Shui Fire Star 9 will be the most important energy to carry luck and wealth. It is located in the southern sector of the Bagua Map. Fire is usually associated with money, success, and power. It brings new ideas and opportunities to your life, but it could also be difficult for you to find your path in life if you let it get out of control.
- NORTH (Indirect Spirit) is the best Water Dragon direction for prosperity and wealth in period 9 Feng Shui
- EAST, SOUTHWEST and SOUTHEAST (Indirect Spirit) is also suitable to see water in this time period
- SOUTH (Direct Spirit) is the best Mountain Dragon direction for health and relationship in period 9 Feng Shui
- WEST, NORTHWEST, and NORTHEAST (Direct Spirit) are secondary locations to see mountains
In case you do not live around natural water and mountains, you can still artificially mimic these:
- For Water: Busy streets mimic natural rivers, a swimming pool, fish tanks, or a ponds are just a few examples
- For Mountains: Have a tall building structure, build a wall, plant large trees or bushes
The Timely Stars of period 9 Feng Shui
- Star 9 will be the most dominant wealth and luck star in period 9. It brings opportunities, health, prosperity, and luck into your life
- Star 1 is the future wealth and luck star and is directly related to our financial well-being in the next 20 years. Enhance it to enjoy overall good fortune and career promotion opportunities.
- Star 2 develops more positive traits as it makes a big shift in its energy. The Star supports land/property related benefits and provides significant financial success.
Neutral, but usable Stars:
- Star 8, the wealth star of Period 8, is in a downward spiral. Some of its benefits are still available to us, but not to their full extent.
- Star 6 never becomes fully untimely because of the later and early heaven sequence calculations. We can still make use of it.
- Star 3 causes miscommunication and conflict in both private and professional settings. It’s possible that a legal dispute will arise.
- Star 4 is linked to diseases including breast cancer and drug addiction. It can also lead to adultery.
- Star 5 is still the most inauspicious and destructive of all the stars. We still need to deal with it using the full power of remedies.
- Star 7 is still unlucky, and it can bring financial difficulties, robbery, theft, disasters, and gossip.
Period 7, Period 8 Home Transition into the Feng Shui Period 9 era
Please keep in mind that 70% of the auspicious chi energy emanates from the outside and determines whether or not your home can bring you luck, health, and riches. If you’re thinking about buying or building a new home in the year 2024 or later, keep the following in mind:
There will be no home equally good for both health and wealth. You have to decide what is more important going forward. I already see many panicky people worrying about what the new era brings for them once their period 7 or period 8 home transits into the new Feng Shui Period 9.
To begin, you must first comprehend the nature of the change. This blog post provides an in-depth look at everything you need to know. Now it’s up to me to convey both the good and bad news.
The Good News:
Instead of focusing on Star 8 as our lucky star, we must examine our house bagua map (permanent chart) for Star 9 in the sitting and facing position. Money, riches, and career luck are associated with the facing position. The sitting position is associated with health and interpersonal interactions.
Now you must ask yourself, “Where is the star energy located in my home, and how can I easily activate it?” You may need to relocate your workplace or bedroom, but it will be for the better for the next 20 years or more. Many Feng Shui Period 8 or Period 7 homes simply require minor alterations to bring them into compliance with Period 9.
The Bad News (the entrapped star, missing section)
Star 9 is caught and trapped in the heart of your permanent energy chart. That’s bad news, because the house will never or hardly profit from Period 9’s bountiful energy.
Homes affected for Facing Position (Money lock):
- Period 8 home: Northwest 1 (292.5 – 307.5), Northwest 2 (307.5 – 322.5), and Northwest 3 (322.5 – 337.5) are the impacted residences.
- Period 7 home: West 1 (247.5 – 262.5), West 2 (262.5 – 277.5), and West 3 (277.5 – 292.5)
- Period 6 home: Northeast 1 (22.5 – 37.5), Northeast 2 (37.5 – 52.5), and Northeast 3 (52.5 – 67.5)
Homes affected for the Sitting Position (People lock):
- Period 8 home: Southeast 1 (112.5 – 127.5), Southeast 2 (127.5 – 142.5), and Southeast 3 (142.5 – 157.5)
- Period 7 home: East 1 (67.5 – 82.5), East 2 (82.5 – 97.5), and East 3 (97.5 – 112.5)
- Period 6 home: Southwest 1 (202.5 – 217.5), Southwest 2 (217.5 – 232.5), and Southwest 3 (232.5 – 247.5)
Missing Sector South on permanent home energy map:
When the south sector of your home is lacking, your property will be unable to benefit from Period 9 Feng Shui energy. It signifies that good fortune, money, and health will be difficult to come by. You will miss out on the opportunity to use Wealth Star 9. This is a significant drawback! In addition, family members related with the South sector (middle daughter) will have negative luck and poor health. Confused, what to do? Read more here how a consultation can help
What are the Feng Shui periods?
Once noticed by an ancient astrologist, the star energies are constantly moving in our cosmos. In classical Feng Shui (Flying Stars), a 180-year energy shift movement is noticed. At this point, all the stars line up in a straight line. This happens every 180 years. Each phase lasts for 20 years, for a total of 9 periods that are considered. This is because Jupiter and Mars align at this point. This causes the energy shift to happen.
The Feng Shui periods are very important because it tells us what Flying Star energies are locked inside the home at the move-in point.
In a nutshell, we can say that this is the “permanent energy” will reside permanently inside of the home as long as you live there. This provides the basis of the flying star energy calculations.
At this point, I’d like to debunk a common myth: the completion date of the home is NOT considered the time we assign a certain Feng Shui period to the home. In fact, the moving in date is the time to consider the Feng Shui building period.
To demonstrate, Qi Energy moves freely in the open environment to attach itself to a person. Once you move into the house, the energy is carried by you and distributed; an empty house is not able to do it by itself.
When can the Feng Shui home period energy change?
There is a way that you can change the Feng Shui period for your home. If major renovation is done, a home’s period can change. By and large, only major work is considered a game changer. If you believe you have painted the walls, that’s not enough. We talk about ripping out the entire floor tiles, replacing a new front door, or changing the entire roof.
Let’s give you an example and say you live in a home that was built in 2006 (Period 8). It has had no major renovation since then, and you are now living in Period 9, which starts in 2024. You want to renovate your home, but you also want to be able to enjoy the luck of the upcoming Period 9. Yes, the Period 9 Feng Shui energy will take effect if you redo the entire house from top to bottom.
Another general rule of thumb is: when the exterior of your home undergoes massive renovation, a new Feng Shui period is triggered by the changes made to it, too. That’s because the exterior of your house forms part of what we call your “external environment.”
In some cases, apartments or condominium buildings are differently handled when it comes to calculate the Feng Shui building energy. When a new tenant moves right away in, the home period will not change. However, if there is a time lapse in between, this may change.This is quite a general rule, as each time we have to look at it on a case-by-case basis.
What is my Feng Shui Home Period?
Basically, look at the date you moved into your house to note your “Feng Shui Home Period”. For instance, a home that was completed in September 2003 is a Period 7 house. Even if the owner moves in right away, it will still be classified as a Period 7 home.
On the flip side, the home’s completion date was in Period 8, but the owner moves in during Period 9 Feng Shui era. Due to the delayed moving in date, the home becomes a Period 9 home. Why does it matter? The energy map of the home will be different. The table below shows the Feng Shui periods of the 180-year cycle
- Period: 1864 – 1883
- Period :1884 – 1903
- Period 1904 – 1923
- Period 1924 – 1943
- Period 1944 – 1963
- Period 1964 – 1983
- Period 1984 – 2003
- Period 2004 – 2023
- Period 2024 – 2043
This is the end of the 180-year cycle. The new Period One cycle starts again in 2044–2063.
