These days should not be used for any important personal activities or endeavours. But can be used for commencement of legal separation action or to end a relationship.

@j27945 I bear good news! Just an update, the items are found and just arrived. I’ll be collecting it tomorrow.
The contemporary concept of “forest medicine” originated in Japan, a place where nature has long been celebrated. The Japanese party when flowers bloom, the moon is bright, and when fireflies multiply. The country’s two major religions, Buddhism and Shintoism, consider forests mystical. “For Zen Buddhists, scripture is written in the landscape,” writes Li. “In Shinto, the spirits are not separate from nature, they are in it. They are in the trees, in the rocks, in the breeze, the stream, the waterfall.”
1. On Mountain & On Water (到山到向) – This is the most desirable configuration in Flying Stars with water at the frontage of the property, thus supporting a timely Water Star and tall form or structure behind the property supporting a timely Mountain Star. The current period 8 has this configuration.
2. Up the Mountain, Down the Water (上山下水) – In some text, this configuration is also called Reverse Riding Dragon because the timely Mountain Star is located at the front of the property and a timely Water Star is located at the rear. These buildings are generally deemed as inauspicious, as both Stars are not in their correct position and therefore the occupants may suffer from poor health and financial issues. The current period 8 also has this configuration.
3. Double Stars In Front (双星到向) – This configuration refers to both the timely Water and Mountain Stars appearing at the front of a property. It could be presence of water (such as a fountain or pond) and or distant mountain located at the front of the property. This is a common configuration in the next period (Period 9).
4. Double Stars Behind (双星到山)– This configuration refers to both the timely Water and Mountain Stars appearing at the rear of a property. It could be presence of a strong mountain form (such as a tall tree, fence or structure) and water (such as a pond, fountain or swimming pool) at the rear of the property. This is a common configuration in the next period (Period 9).
In my 2019 article – Interplanetary Alignment of Xuan Kong Flying Stars (五星連珠玄空飛星風水), which attempt to relate the theory of Flying Stars with the Great Conjunction in Astronomy.
This planetary alignment of Jupiter and Saturn take place every 19.85 years. This approx. 20 years duration has close similarities with the flying stars theory of marking out a new period. This is one reasons to believe that the changes of period in flying stars theory that originally developed; had came from observation of planetary alignment.
Taking another step further, looking at planets in the night sky (天), we know that they are not static (i.e. oscillation occurs as planets orbits around the sun), giving off vibration that it perhaps has an indirect or metaphysical influence on the earth (地) energy and human (人).
In Flying Star system, users of this system learned (or are taught) that the house chart is fixated when the house is build. Extrapolate a little… 20 years later when period 9 changes to period 1 ~ the issues can be quite a handful, because this is a major change from lower cycle to upper cycle in San Yuan system.
If so, knowing the planets moves, could we then, as users of Flying Stars Feng Shui system embrace a paradigm shift in our mental models that the Stars in the Flying Star chart is, perhaps not fixated when the property is build, and that you don’t need to tear down your roof or ceiling or even vacate the property in order to change period. Instead (perhaps) the stars automatically shift as we move from the current period into the next, then the simple take away is that we just need to know, when and how to apply.
This may probably be the key to explain why some period 6 or 7 property still enjoys prosperous Flying Star energy because the stars have shifted accordingly when the period shifted to period 8. For example, N3 facing (丁山癸向) in period 6 has a double stars at sitting (双星到山), as it move into period 7 has a double stars at facing (双星到向) and now in period 8 has a double stars at sitting (双星到山) + Star 9 (九运右弼到向首) + HeTu Combination (河图组合); the household move from wealth focus to family and well-being oriented.
Read the following from a book, I felt the analysis by author is one sided. Hence, added my commentary.
Day Master is weak, Resource is strong = high education level, the stronger the Resource elements the higher the education level. (My Commentary: Strong Resource but different Yin Yang relationship, there a good chance of laziness)
Day Master is weak, Resource is weak = low education level, the weaker the Resource, the lower the education level. (My Commentary: Not necessarily, Luck Cycle play a major part as well as Feng Shui could assist to enhance Academic Stars)
Day Master is strong, Resource is strong = low education level, the stronger the Resource, the lower the education level. (My Commentary: Not necessarily, if the chart has nice Eating God and/or Hurting Officer. He or She could be rather learned)
Day Master is strong, Resource is weak = high education level, the weaker the Resource, the higher the education level. (My Commentary: Yes, if the chart has Eating God and/or Hurting Officer. Or totally zero resource couple with a nice Authority Pillar)
You are average of your top 5 friends. In Chinese Metaphysics, while it would be important to surround oneself with people with positive energy and vibes. Likewise, some folks are naturally endow with negative ones.
“跟着蜜蜂找花朵, 跟着苍蝇找厕所 ”
“Follow the bees we end up with honey,
Follow the flies we end up with toilet … ”
Therefore, in BaZi 10 God (十神) structure, we need to be mindful whether Friend (比肩) and Rob-Wealth (劫財) stars in the chart triggers a positive influence or a negative vibes. And, in 8 Mansion (八宅), whether we see others as positive or negative also depends on the sectors such as longevity (延年) as well as Yin Yang (陰陽).
Just as, Rob-Wealth (劫財) can be positive influence. Friend (比肩) can give off a negative vibes. Some knowledge of face reading can help one size things up a little.
Friend (比肩) and Rob-Wealth (劫財) stars in the chart are regarded as similar element (同五行). General rule of thumb, the optimal number to have is approx 2 Characters in a 10 Characters analysis (See: 8 Characters or 10 Characters, Balanced or Harmony – 8文字または10文字、バランスまたはハーモニー8)
Numerology Representation – 1, 2 (Wood 木), 3, 4 (Fire 火), 5, 6 (Earth 土), 7 ,8 (Metal 金), 9, 0 (Water 水). Odd Number (Yang), Even Number (Yin). If the number of stroke is 27 (omit 2 and use 7 as 金), if 30 (omit 3 and use 0 as 水).
