In the 8 Mansion FengShui, houses are categorizes in 8 sectors 45˚each around the compass according to the later heaven trigram as shown in the table below:

nl-02-8 chart 1

The unique characterises are:

  • Base on sitting of house or apartment
  • Constant logic and not affected by time
  • Each sector is 45˚ in accordance to the later heaven trigram

But please do not confuse with your Kua number that is classified according to your year of birth in the East and West Group theory. We are sharing the basics of the 8 Mansions FengShui (Dec 2011 Newsletter) with the combination of Fly Star FengShui in the next newsletter.

Each house type has 8 sectors and is classified into 4 auspicious and 4 inauspiciousdirections namely:

Sheng Chi 生气

Wealth and prosperity sector (good place for wealth enhancement and activity)

Yen Nien 延年

Romance and relationship sector (also agood place to rest for elderlyand thus longevity)

Tien Yi 天医

Health and recuperating sector (good place for illness recovery or having a new baby)

Fu Wei 伏位

Support and stability sector (located at the back of the house acting as a support, nevertheless one will tend to be lazy as well)

HuoHai 禍害

Disaster sector (related to mishaps like bad health and mental illness but will not be fatal)

Liu Sha 六杀

Six killings sector (related to bad luck that will causeaccidents, robberies and lawsuits)

Wu Gui 五鬼

Five Ghost sector (related toconflicts and entanglements)

Jue Ming 絶命

Death sector (related to fatal accident, abortion, business failure and suicide thinking)

 

The chart below will let you understand the type of house according
to the sitting of the property:

This unit sits on the North and faces the South thus it
belongs to the Kan house type:

It could be seen that the directions that are auspicious are mostly facing the east, south east, south and the north. In current modern living environment, we could hardly have designed apartments that fit nicely into the good sectors or directions only. But we can fine tune to have the good sectors/facing micro into the rooms. For the case above most of the windows and doors are facing the good directions and is deem auspicious.

As the logic does not change with time, it will be easy for one to reference for a start.

Nevertheless, won’t it be good if you know not only the good and bad directions of your property but also the sector where the good energies are as well? In the next Newsletter I would be sharing the School of Flying Stars FengShui.
