A Complete Guide to Flying Star Nine Purple (in the context of Fortune Period 9)


What is the Flying Star Nine Purple (9-Purple), Characteristics & the Most Important Takeaway

Nine Purple, short for Nine Purple You Bi Star, best known for its manifestation of joyous matter and vivacious vibe in Feng Shui subject, is one of the most important stars in the Nine Flying Stars family, and the dominant star in Fortune Period 9 (2024 -2044) based on Xuan Kong Flying Star Feng Shui school.

Please note that, in Chinese metaphysical terms, a “star” is often not referred to as a celestial body, but a pocket of energy. Each member of the nine Flying Star family is named after a number and its manifestation of color and light: One White (water element), Two Black (earth element), Three Jade (wood element), Four Green (wood element), Five Yellow (earth element), Six White (metal element), Seven Red (metal element), Eight White (earth element), and Nine Purple (fire element). The number of each name corresponds to the star’s position in Luo Shu (Luo River Chart), one of the most important Chinese esoteric origins; the element of each star matches the corresponding element of Gua in Late Heaven Ba Gua.

From the illustrations above, we can see that 9 Purple belongs to the fire element and echoes with Li Gua. As a result, 9 purple shares the manifestation of Li Gua, which represents the sun, rainbow, flash, and electricity, relating to organs and body parts such as eyes, tongue, head, face, heart, blood, veins, upper abdomen, intestine, beauty, elegance, fame, middle-aged women, middle daughter, education, entertainment, etc. Like other members in the Flying Star family, 9-purple manifests positive aspects if it is activated correctly, or its energy is on the rise; it manifests negative aspects when it is not activated correctly, or when its energy is on the wane.

In the Flying Star family, there are three all-time auspicious stars, One White, Six White, and Eight White, and a few ominous stars especially when they are on the wane, for instance, Two Black, Three Jade, Five Yellow, Seven Red, 9-Purple is considered a relatively neutral star with an inclination to the auspicious spectrum. There is a general saying that 9-Purple strengthens any accompanying Star, exacerbating the situation when it is accompanied by a negative star, and amplifying the benefits when it is accompanied by a positive star. It is not always true since the context matters. For example, 6-White is an auspicious star; however, if 9-Purple meets 6-White in the kitchen, the outcome can be detrimental.

As we enter the Fortune Period 9 in 2024, the positive attributes of the Nine Purple will become more apparent. That does not mean we can ignore the potential danger of activating 9-Purple incorrectly.

Though my primary focus in this article is on the annual flying star 9-Purple, many principles can be applied to interpret the Xuan Kong Flying Star school’s mountain star and water star chart as well.

Who will benefit most from activating the annual Flying Star 9-Purple?

  1. If you are working in the entertainment industry
  2. If you are working in the beauty industry
  3. If you are working in the electronics industry
  4. If you are working in a new media industry, such as computer gaming, interactive media, internet, and digital publishing (YouTuber, blogger, etc.)
  5. If you want to boost your educational luck
  6. If you are single and currently searching for loved ones,
  7. If you are in a relationship and want to tighten the relationship or move to the next stage.
  8. If you would like to conceive a baby
  9. If you are seeking for promotion
  10. If you would like to create a joyous vibe in your environment
  11. If you would like to tap future prosperity energy

Please note that some of the categories above may work best to activate the star combo or work with a personal natal chart. Depending on the context and environmental restrictions, I will adjust my approach to reach the best impact.  To fully actualize the goal, I will combine the annual flying star arrangement with other practical arrangements as well.  You can check my Annual flying star arrangement for details.

There are multiple categories of people who are prone to the influence of 9-Purple. I listed six common categories for reference.

  • If the 9-Purple star is located in the entry of your house, the entry of your bedroom, or the entry of your office.

The entry area is the most easily activated because of the daily movement. For example, in the year 2024, people with house entry in the southwest are likely to see the impact of 9-Purple.  

  • If 9-Purple Star is located in your kitchen area.

9-Purple belongs to the fire element. Fire element will be strengthened or activated by the fire element of a kitchen and thus affect the whole family.

  • If the annual 9-Purple star is in the bed, office, or area you spend the most time on daily.

For example, in the year 2024, the 9-Purple star is located in the southwest region, if your bedroom happens to be in the southwest region of the house, you will be affected by 9-Purple.

  • If your zodiac house overlaps with the annual 9-Purple’s position.

For example, 9-Purple is located in the east region of a house in 2024, and both houses of zodiac Sheep and zodiac Monkey belong to the southwest region, if you are a zodiac Sheep or zodiac Monkey, you are likely to be affected by 9-Purple in 2024.

  • If your Gua number overlaps with the annual 9-Purple’s position.

For example, in 2024, 9-Purple is in the southwest region, which is Kun Gua, #2. If your Gua number is Kun Gua, Gua number #2, you are likely to be affected by 9-Purple in 2024.

Below is the quick reference list for your Gua Number.

  • If your attributes overlap with the Gua archetype of 9-Purple’s position.

For example, 9-Purple is located in the southwest region of a house in 2024, the southwest region represents the female household, the mother, or the elderly female, if any family members match one of the southwest archetypes, they are likely to be affected by 9-Purple.

  • If the position of 9-Purple has any item that matches 9-Purple’s manifestation, for example, a huge TV set that is always on, a bright landscape photo, a big, framed award certificate on display, etc.  

For example, in the year 2025, 9-Purple will be in the east region, if the east region happens to be the area where your family is always watching TV, then the family members are likely to be affected by 9-Purple.

How to correctly activate flying star Nine Purple, factors to be considered

You might have heard many ways of activating 9-Purple either from online articles or a feng shui seminar. Indeed, it is not that complicated to just activate 9-Purple, the difficult part is to activate 9-Purple without causing any side effects. Most Feng Shui practitioners are doing feng shui arrangements based on a few popular metaphysical schools they have learned, without knowing a complete picture of what practice should be prioritized or what methods should not be applied under certain conditions. I will share with you below my experience and approach on how to select the best tool to activate 9-Purple.

To activate 9-Purple correctly and safely, there are multiple levels of consideration as below.

  • Consider the tool from the perspective of the element:

The most common approach to activating a flying star is to start with its element. In this case, 9-Purple belongs to the fire element. Based on the five-element cycle, fire strengthens fire, and wood supports fire, so either wood or fire element can be a good option.  But then things start going wild as you do your research. You will see items such as a shiny fireball, crystal trees, amethyst wands, flying horses, water fountains, etc., they are all claimed to do magic for their purpose. But let us step back to analyze from the elemental standpoint.

Any item can be broken down into five aspects in terms of its element: the material, the color, the shape, the number, and the symbolism. The more concentrated and aligned these five aspects are, the better and pure this item is in terms of a tool. For example, an elongated (wood shape) green color (wood element) wooden charm (wood material) with three Gods on career blessing (wood number with symbolism), or simply three tall green plants with strong stems. Per this method, you can already filter out a lot of trinkets in the market and choose the best tool for you.

I have stressed many times to my students that something used for feng shui purposes does not have to be an esoteric-looking item. It is all about applying the right tool and displaying it in the right place for the right person at the right time. I tailor a cure or enhancer to meet a client’s needs for either convenience or privacy. Someone who paid a visit to my house would never know that I have “Feng Shuied” my house.

However, some of the traditional tools still have their value, for example, I still use Chi Lin (Dragon Horse) and dragon for certain arrangements because they simply work best for certain career arrangements and cleansing purposes.

Nevertheless, the elemental factor is just the first layer of consideration, we will delve deeper into the selection circle on how to customize this tool.

  • Consider the tool from the perspective of cleansing:

When I mention the term “cleansing,” the first image appearing in people’s minds is mostly about the sage smudging or singing a bell. Though this is not completely incorrect, these couple popular practices are rather far away from the core of effective metaphysical cleansing.

In terms of serious in-depth effective cleansing, there are four aspects of cleansing to be considered: form cleansing, energy cleansing, spiritual cleansing, and Karma cleansing.  Oftentimes, performing these four cleansings alone can already make great improvements in people’s lives. For this reason, cleansing has always been my first step in helping my clients to achieve their goals. Since in-depth cleansing is a huge and complex topic, I will reserve it for future articles and focus on how it relates to tool selection below. I will focus only on the relevant aspects of cleansing for this article.

In the four cleansings that I mentioned above, form cleansing and energy cleansing will be the primary factors we consider when we select the proper tool for a specific location, we would only prefer tools in square shape or rectangular shapes without cutting edge within private areas, such as bedroom, family room, and flat round shape (avoid spherical items) in living room and office. Any tools that you pick for cure or activation purposes should abide by this rule to avoid potential risk.  For example, Triangle and pointy items are both considered the shape of fire, so in theory, they support 9-purple. However, if you use a crystal pyramid or an amethyst wand as the tool to activate 9-Purple, it will also cause blood, eye, and cardiovascular issues, and even bring about accidents.

  • Consider the tool in a Yin and Yang, water and mountain perspective.

I was a bit hesitant to include this topic since this is a bit too advanced for most practitioners. But this is one of the essential practical factors one should consider when activating 9 Purple using the water feature.  Most occidental Xuan Kong Flying Star practitioners have learned that 9 Purple is the dominant flying star in fortune period 9 (2024 – 2044), knowing there are 9 fortune periods in the context of Xuan Kong Flying Star. However, few people understand that the Flying Stars 9 fortune period is just one component of the complete Feng Shui fortune period system. In short, the popular 9 fortune-period system is considered the heavenly fortune period, also known as the San Yuan 9 fortune period; there is an advanced 8 fortune-period system that is called the earthly fortune period (known as Er Yuan 8 fortune period), which is used in more sophisticated practice to determine practical outcome.  These two fortune periods overlapped, served different purposes, and complemented each other in feng shui practice.

I understand one will need a dedicated course to have a good understanding of the Feng Shui Fortune period system for sure. The quick and important takeaway for a beginner is that the earthly fortune period determines whether a position or a direction is Yin or Yang, still or active, or if this position is a true mountain position or water position, in short, where mountains sit, and water goes. While the heavenly fortune period is mainly for the manifestation of events. If the earthly energy is inappropriate, there is nothing for heavenly energy to manifest.  Xuan Kong Flying Star School would use the water feature in the prosperous water star position, believing it would activate financial power. For the earthly fortune period, Period 9 started in 2017, and the water feature should be in the north, southwest, east, and southeast till 2044, which is a more important component to be considered and prioritized when one is using water features to activate the 9-Purple. When using the water feature to activate 9-Purple, one should consider whether the water feature meets the basic requirements for the earthly fortune period requirement.

For example, someone moves into a North 1 sitting house in March 2024, the prosperous water star # 9 is located in the south sector. According to Xuan Kong Flying Star School, this area should be activated with water. Therefore, a water feature is recommended to boost financial energy. However, the water feature should be avoided in this region because the south region is a mountain sector, not a water sector in earthly fortune period 9. A water feature in the south has a negative impact on financial energy.

  • I would consider from an individual perspective, doing it in a small Tai Ji.

Everything is considered a Tai Ji (Tai Chi). Therefore, a house is a Tai Ji when one is charting 8 sectors for arrangement, and a bedroom, or a study room is also a Tai Ji. Many feng shui arrangements should be performed on the scale of small Tai Ji since they are arranged for a specific personal goal.

Sometimes the arrangement of Big Tai Ji may conflict with Small Tai Ji. I used to see someone place a Tibet bell at home because she attended a flying star course somewhere and was advised to display a bell to exhaust the annual Five Yellow.

The person had a car accident the second day after she placed the bell.

Later when she showed me the position and layout, it was clear that she only followed the Big Tai Ji direction and ignored the small Tai Ji. The bell was placed in the Five Yellow position of Big Tai Ji, but in her bedroom’s #7 area, which creates a manifestation of metal crashing, hence, a car accident.

Though it is not an example of 9-Purple, the life lesson also applies to the principle of arrangement. One should make sure the arrangement of Big Tai Ji will not create any problems for his small Tai Ji, oftentimes, bedroom, study room, etc. When there is a conflict, one should prioritize the small Tai Ji for the arrangement.

For example, in 2024, based on the measurement of big Tai Ji, one can display a red vase to activate a 9-purple in the southwest, and spot A in pic 1 looks fine. However, if we look closer and chart the Small Tai Ji of the person’s study room, spot B in pic 2 is a better spot since it meets both requirements of Big Tai Ji and Small Tai Ji.

  • I would consider from a spiritual perspective, including relevant consecrated talisman(s) to enhance its power.

There are many ways to ensure a feng shui arrangement works its best; one of the most safe and effective ways is to include the spiritual aspect. Any complete effort to improve a person’s fortune will be a combination of three components, earth, heaven, and mankind. Feng Shui arrangement works mainly as the earth factor, while talisman or Daoism magic works mainly as the heaven factor to complement the effort of a fortune transformation.

For example, I often use Daoism magic, specific rituals, and talismans to complement the feng shui arrangement and thus maximize the desired positive result. Depending on the purpose of an arrangement, I would also perform different types of talisman consecration. If a client is seeking love, a romance talisman is given in addition to the personal love arrangement; if a person is seeking promotion, or passing a bar test, a career or promotion type of talisman will be given to the client. Talisman is often purpose-oriented, which can help to ensure that the clients will see positive results at the soonest time.
