Basically, it is a way of keeping track of the good and the bad feng shui energies (called stars) every new year.
There are 9 feng shui annual stars, five beneficial (1 Water, 4 Wood, 6 Metal, 8 Earth, 9 Fire) and 4 challenging (5 Yellow, 7 Metal, 2 Black, 3 Wood). The annual stars change their location every year, thus the name annual flying stars.
The movement of annual stars is based on the ancient wisdom of the Lo Shu Square, also called the Magic Square, as determined by feng shui masters many thousands of years ago.
The 9 numbers of the Lo Shu Square are the nine feng shui stars in the feng shui flying stars school.
The stars/numbers always move in a specific pattern on which the annual (and monthly) calculations of the flying star school of feng shui are based upon.
Each feng shui annual star is expressed as a certain quality of energy (ie. Star of Wealth, or Star of Romance).
Each annual star is also expressed in a specific feng shui element (i.e. Metal or Wood), as well as the energy of a specific number.
