Feed Your Wild: How To Bring Balance To Your Home, Health + Life Using The Art Of Feng Shui With Anjie Cho

featured this month on Wildly rooted

This month I was featured on Wildly Rooted’s podcast, Feed Your Wild, with Venessa Rodriguez! We chat about what feng shui means, my journey to feng shui and architecture, what a typical feng shui consultation is like and so much more!

Practicing Feng Shui is a way to have mindfulness in respect to your surroundings - all of the little details impact your wellbeing, your stress levels and how you show up in the world.
— Anjie Cho

Consider for a moment that everything in your environment, what I call your Sacred Ecology, plays a role in creating the conditions for growing the YOU that stands as yourself today and the future (whether we like it or not)… While it may not feel like it initially, this is a highly empowering thing to grasp.

Autumn Is Finally (Actually) Here!

New York City isn't usually associated with warm fall weather, but this year the sunshine stuck around a bit longer than usual. Some of us (me!) enjoyed it, and others waited patiently for real autumn temperatures. They're finally starting to drop down, so I'd thought I'd share my favorite blog posts from over the years to help us all get adjusted to fall, no matter how late it showed up!

Q&A Sunday: Nine Star Ki Order

Nine Star Ki Order.jpg

Does the Nine Star Ki process forwards or backwards through the numbers? I have read conflicting things about how to find the elemental year and what year I am in. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Katja D., Holliston, MA

Hi Katja, 

Thank you for your question! And I'm happy that you're diving into the Nine Star Ki. I love it and use it often!

The approach to evaluating Nine Star Ki numerology, as with most things, depends on how you were taught and your interpretation of the knowledge. In the BTB Masters feng shui program that I studied in, my teacher, Rosalie Prinzivalli, taught me the Nine Star Ki numerology as she was taught by her teacher, Edgar Sung. Edgar was also a BTB feng shui master, who studied under Professor Lin Yun. He taught Nine Star numerology such that the process works this way. This is the way I practice as well, since he is part of my teacher's lineage.

My understanding is that in traditional Chinese practice, Nine Star Ki is calculated by reading your numbers differently, based on whether you are male or female. For instance, in the Nine Star Ki practiced by feng shui master, Joey Yap, who I also studied with, your principle number (also called a life number) is different depending on your sex. The way Rosalie taught me, I'm a 6 Metal. But from Joey Yap's calculations, I would only be a 6 Metal if I were a man. As a woman with the same birthday, I'm a 9 Fire. 

So ultimately, as is often the case in feng shui and all things in life, your interpretation of the Nine Star Ki depends on your teacher, their teacher's lineage and your experience and knowledge using the information. As I've shared before, teachers are a very important part of feng shui, and the way you learn each part of the practice will vary depending on who you choose to study with. I'm not sure what your experience is, but I would recommend choosing a teacher you trust, who resonates with you, and learning their methods. Know that there will be conflicting information in feng shui, especially if you aren't learning from a teacher. Just another reason teachers are so important if you really want to learn true feng shui! If you'd like to learn a bit more about Nine Star Ki before you find your mentor, I can recommend Feng Shui Astrology and Nine Star Ki: Michio Kushi's Guidebook on Love and Relationships, Health and Travel and Getting Through the 1990's.

Our 2017 Nine Star Ki podcast episode also has easy directions for calculating this number in the way that I practice. Hopefully we answered your questions and this helps! The Nine Star Ki for 2018 is coming up soon, so keep an eye out!
