Charting your destiny

Opportunities and Lessons

9 Star Ki (also known as Feng Shui Astrology) is based on a recurrent natural cycle of 9 energies. This system underlies the I Ching, Aztec calendar, 9 Muses in Greek philosophy, and other ancient cosmologies and divides people into 9 primary star types based on their date of birth: flexible 1 Waters; gentle 2 Soils; romantic 3 and 4 Trees; balanced 5 Soils; disciplined 6 and 7 Metals; visionary 8 Soils; and passionate 9 Fires.

9 Star Ki is an invaluable compass for managing your spiritual journey through life as well as daily, monthly, yearly, and lifelong affairs. During this seminar, you may discover many things about your life and relationships that will astonish and enlighten you and contribute to endless self-realization in the future.
