Come the Chinese Lunar New Year on February 3, 2011, the stars and planets take on new positions. They have a different ability to affect and create certain natural phenomena all over the world.
Knowing how to interpret the Nine Star Charts by understanding the laws of nature through the I Ching, 5 Element Theory and the philosophy of feng shui, we can get a glimpse into how nations across the world will fare. Knowing which economic sectors will go up or down allows you to focus your effort on attaining positive results and preparing yourself for preventing loss.
The following is an overview of events that may occur for 2011 based on the Nine Star charts applied to the world and the United States. Please refer to the maps for the corresponding regions of each direction. Keep in mind, just like the U.S. map, the Nine Star chart can also be applied to individual countries and states.
Ambitious high-technology and innovative companies charge to the economic forefront, particularly in western regions such as Silicon Valley. This new, powerful, ever-changing and competitively-driven market is making older generation businesses obsolete creating an adverse economic effect on major sectors of the work force.
Younger generations schooled in these advanced technologies enjoy wealth in this fast-paced medium. This is especially true in eastern regions such as China where advanced technology, defense, art, and entertainment skyrocket. However, many transactions in the east are questionable. Profiting with short-term gains, speculative businesses rise and fall creating an unstable stock market on both sides of the globe.
Real estate improves in the northwest and southwest regions. More people are relocating to northwest regions such as the Bay Area, Seattle, Portland, Denver, and Vancouver bringing economic growth through real estate sales, tourism, and special events. Hillside properties in Los Angeles increase in value and sales.
Northeast, west, and northwest regions enjoy movement, trade, growth, renewal, and wealth. Public relations, employment agencies, adult entertainment, auctions, overstock warehouses, interpreters, firearms, waste disposal, critical journalism, medical and legal services are among fields that thrive in 2011.
There is public outcry at widespread unemployment, government corruption, and sex scandals in 2011. In north, south, southwest, and northwest regions, paperwork, audits and bad communication bring conflict between female leaders and civilians.
Leaders need to define a clear path and proceed with focused teamwork. In this way, they can reach realistic goals despite a slowly recovering economy. Leaders of eastern regions tend to create obstacles and stress that can make them prone to rash military action.
Police forces suffer as riots and demonstrations ensue. These intense times affect the youth and psychologically disturbed. Violence, suicide, and hate crimes make headlines. In particular, northern regions are troubled by criminals fighting amongst each other.
2011 can bring compulsive violent behavior such as shootings, bomb threats, terrorist activities, arson, or air crashes to public places in the north and east. Political issues, leadership problems, and possible revolt or illegal trafficking, slavery problems, and prostitution are still problems in Southeast Asia.
Disgruntled farmers and burned crops in the rural areas of eastern regions such as China lead to higher food and lumber costs. Farmland in southern regions such as Africa, Texas, and Louisiana are vulnerable to disease or infestation that affect crop production and food prices.
Hurricane, typhoons, thunder storms and heavy rains or snow raise water levels causing landslide, flood, and pollution in the southeast, northeast, and north regions. Air crashes, fires, explosions, volcanoes, eclipses, viruses, high temperatures and earthquakes may occur in the east, west, and northeast regions.
Scholars and masters lead humanity through obstacles. Scholars, experts, writers, and researchers from southeast and south regions make contributions that stimulate economic growth. They distribute viral ideas that spur hope, optimism, solutions, and economic progress through creative use of the media.
The world shifts towards alternative solutions. Organic foods, ancient therapies, herbal medicine, spas, and green businesses thrive. Masters congregate in the southeast regions to teach meditation, feng shui, and natural law in hopes of building awareness that will help the world prevent trouble.
People turn to spirituality to find strength during these transitional times, filling churches, temples, mosques and ashrams. Yet, there may still be troublemakers and cultural or spiritual misunderstandings in northeast regions.
Female leadership makes a difference. Women are stronger and more dominant in northeast regions, however they tend to hurt or defeat their male counterparts. In the west, differences in feminine energies clash.
This brings new voices to the surface that share perceptions, methods, and innovations bringing much needed change to the west. In the northwest, female leaders work hard as they confront government officials with legal issues.
With knowledge of the global forecast, you can focus your energy on worthwhile endeavors and sidestep negative energies. Putting your best foot forward is the best global contribution you can make towards peace and raising the positive vibration of the planet.
