When the negative Flying Star known as the 5 Yellow visits a location, this sector is severely afflicted by Sha Qi (negative energy).
A salt water cure is known to be useful to suppress this negative energy.
The size of the salt water cure depends on the size of the area being negatively affected by the 5 Yellow. For a single room within a house 5kg salt is enough. For larger areas (usually office or industrial buildings) up to 200kg salt may be necessary.
|Size||Type||Approx diameter||Salt Quantity||Brass/Copper/Iron||Silver|
|Small||Open top container||20cm - 8ins||5kg||6 brass/copper coins||one coin|
|Medium||Open top container||40cm - 16ins||10-12kg||see below||one coin|
|Large||Barrel||to fit salt weight||100kg||iron see below||one coin|
The medium size container should have 6 small brass door knobs, hinges, or similar size brass or copper. The large container should have 6 dumb bells or gym weights
The traditional saltwater cure can be easily made, very economically at home. The first thing to do is place the container in the correct location for the year. (The container can be anything of a suitable size including a plastic bucket-it does have to be disposed of at the end of the year).
During the first week, you will notice some activity in the container, even though it has not been touched or moved. You may notice splattering, hardening of the salt to a rock-like state, the salt or the water disappearing.2
Whatever happens do what it takes to get it back to its original state by either replenishing the salt or water.
Wherever the 5 Yellow Star visits each year. The Chinese Year starts on February 4 and ends on February 3 and the 5 Yellow will visit a different location each year.
The salt water cure will end up looking something like the picture below. After a few days a bit of crusting can take place. All you have to do is wipe the edges and replace as much salt as necessary to refill it to the top without moving or disturbing it.
