2020 in the light
of the 9 Star Ki
“Never go against the flow” is a natural movement in almost every phenomenon of nature.
Human Being, however, as a creative Being with its expression of free will, often has a natural tendency to row against the tide, running out of effort and lack of acceptance of the present moment.
To inspire the smooth flow of our movement in 2020 I offer this article and I invite you once more to know or recognize this powerful tool of self-awareness that is the 9 Star Ki and to wake up to the pace that the new year brings to each of us according to the hidden symmetry of our birth date.
The 9 Star Ki is rooted in I Ching – The Book of Changes, which is over 4,000 years old. However, the calculations required for its interpretation are very simple and easy to use, making it an easy method for recognizing our natural rhythm and relationships. It is based on the model of the five elements of Chinese philosophy, more specifically on the Bagua trigrams which, in turn, are symbolically expressed as numbers 1 to 9.
This symbolism of the elements is an expression that gives us very clear and precise clues on how to adapt our personal movement to the annual cosmic rhythms.
This method teaches us that each of us, according to your year of birth and according to this calculation is associated, a trigram and a star that is numbered 1 to 9. From this association between stars and trigrams 9 phases are born, throughout which our life unfolds and repeats every 9 years. It also teaches us that these stars assume 9 personality types that will receive the energetic quality of the 5 elements of nature. Thus we have: an energetic personality type Water star 1; a Fire, star 9; three personality Earth types, stars 2,5,8; two Wood, stars 3 and 4; Two Metal Stars 6 and 7. So, first of all, everyone reading this article should know its energetic essence or Ming
Eg: Ex.:2+0+2+0= 4 11-4=7 Metal 7
However, be aware: The beginning of the year for this calculation is slightly different. Thus, those born until February 3 or 4, still belong to the previous year. And these February 3/4 dates are not watertight, they change year by year. If you are born between February 1st and 5th, to find out which year you belong to correctly you should consult a specific calendar.
This year 2020 flows under the baton of Metal 7 and the Solar calendar changes on February 4, 2020. Thus, all children born between February 4,
I share here the advice of Master Takashi Yoshikawa for the Ming Gua (essence number) 7:
“Money is important, but there are many other things in life that are, too, especially the development of sincerity that can improve everything in your life. Beware of arrogance! “
Resuming, this art is based on the principles of Chinese Metaphysics in particular in the perception of time as a circular movement in which we are invited to experience throughout our lives a rhythmic movement completely connected with the rhythm of nature of which we are an integral part.
Time, viewed in this way, is a circle, the so-called eternal circle where the 5 rhythms, 5 transformations or 5 elements manifest. Each year we are invited to live has, from this perspective, the movement of each of these rhythms that have 9 symbolic qualities of energy that will resonate with our essence in a unique way.
Let’s see how:
This year Star 7, Yin Metal will be in House 5- Earth Energy
House 5 on the 9 Star Ki is called “the eye of the hurricane.” As in the hurricane analogy, in the center there is calm and stillness; Thus, this year the 7 Star Yin Metal
8 Star, Yang Earth will be in House 6- Yang Metal Energy
By 2020 Ming Gua 8 has a new opportunity to learn to take personal power and take more responsibility. We are in the harvesting phase of the previous cycles and as such is a phase that usually brings work and more responsibility. This is a good opportunity to put the house in order, metaphorically or even literally. It’s a good year to learn about Space Clearing and RE connecting with the most spiritual and inspiring side of life. As a positive
9 Star will be in House 7- Yin Metal Energy
Water 1 Star will be in House 8- Yang earth energy
On a positive influence, house 8 brings the desire to internalize, a calmer pace and the promise of change for a better life that may not yet manifest, but it is the right time to model the changes that need to happen in the coming
2 Star will be in House 9 – Fire Energy
In House 9 the rhythm is that of maximum expression, presence
3 Star will be in House 1- Water Energy
House 1 brings the possibility and
4 Star will be in House 2- Earth Energy
This is a slow but constructive phase of progress. It is the laying of the foundation for a fresh start or renewal. This is a good time to root projects and partnerships. To live this phase in harmony the advice is that Ming
Star 5 will be in House 3- Yang Wood Energy
Frantic, hectic but full of new opportunities is the invitation that this year brings for Ming
Star 6 will be in House 4- Yin Wood Energy
And I finish this passage through the 9 houses, 9 rhythms, 9 proposals. Life thus perceived, is an eternal opportunity for transformation, improvement, and learning in a spiraling movement that owes us ever deeper and deeper in vertical and deep time, and, also in the discovery and manifestation of our own verticality.
Just let it flow!
