Date Selection (擇日), Flying Stars (玄空飛星風水)

Secret is in Moon Formula (And not in Sun Formula)

Timing is a critical aspect in Feng Shui, as it brings the necessary Qi flow to overcome certain ills predominantly present in the residence or alignment of positive energy to bring about goals and outcomes in our lives.

When the earth rotates around the sun every year, 12 months and 24 seasons are marked out; and when the moon rotates around the earth, similarily 24 position are marked out. The ancients based on the concept that earth is static, they derive a system of 24 possible location for the sun and moon. Hence, giving rise to ” The Great Sun and Moon Formula”.

In later development, comes the 3 combination (三合) and 6 combination (六合) based on Earth Branches are add in to ‘enhance’ the usage of this formula. And it is believe that when the Sun or Moon arrives at the sitting location of the property, renovation could be done at afflicted sector. Affliction such as Grand Duke, 5 Yellow Stars, 3 Killing, Wu Ji Earth Sha (戊己都天煞) can be harmonised. And in the 3 combination (三合) approach, it is believe the other 4 sectors that are associate to the facing and sitting (2 each) could also be use (

As we move into the season of Minor Cold (6 Jan till 20 Jan, and if the property is sitting or facing N3 (癸), we can use this season to enhance the house energy (3 & 6 Combination are disregarded). Activities such as smudging, space cleansing and activation of monthly stars to bring goals / intention into fruition can be considered.

In the case of renovation, earth breaking or wall hacking and it is in an afflicted sector, receiving the sun energy on sitting or facing does not automatically harmonize or cancel out the affliction; other Date Selection methodology are still necessary.

Up to this point, you will realize Practitioners and Masters brag about The Great Sun Formula and downplay the Moon Formula, and if you are using Sun Formula and has some awareness of Western Astrology you would realize a conflicting issue in terms of the Sun actual position is in the Ecliptic Map. As well as questioning the Great Sun results.

In Western Astrology, the twelve constellations of the zodiac lie along the plane of the Ecliptic Map. The Ecliptic Map is defined by the circular path of the Sun across the sky as seen from Earth. (And the Sun Formula seemingly is moving anticlockwise).

It is because of this predictable cycle that the journey of the Sun through the zodiac was used by ancient cultures to determine the time of year. In this way, the so-called cardinal constellations of the zodiac (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) mark the beginning of the four seasons. The Sun enters these constellations on the first days of spring, summer, autumn and winter respectively.

The Moon Formula holds the secret in application (Not the Sun). It is innately aligned with the 24 Season and Western Astrology. As the sun passed through each Constellation that particular period is designated for that Constellation (i.e. Gemini in May/ Jun). Hence, it might be the Real Sun-Position is within the Moon Formula.

In layman terms, we can make use of Western Astrology Constellation or the Moon Formula to do Feng Shui activation or harmonize afflictions. For example, now is the period of Minor Cold (小寒), the property with N3/NE1 (癸/丑) Sitting or S3/SW1 (丁/未) Facing can make use of this season to do Activation or Harmonisation.

The Moon Formula is widely available on the internet. Go search it up, apply and feel the results.

For those who gravitate towards research or academically gifted, it would be beneficial to point out to you that (whether) it is The Great Sun or Gentle Moon; this ring is intentionally aligned with the San He (三合) compass’s Man and Heaven Plate/ Ring.

P.S: Only Sitting and Facing of the property are considered, the 3 Combo (三合) and 6 Combo (六合) add-ons are disregarded.

Metaphysics (易学)

Comforting Citrine

Citrine belongs to the family of quartz and is consider rare in nature, its color caused it to be confused with topaz. People have been using quartz as jewelry since ancient times. The Egyptians gathered striped agates and use them as talisman, ancient Greeks use rock crystal ornament, Romans wore rings set with Amethyst.

Today, in modern times, its attractive color, durability and affordability makes it the top-selling yellow-to-orange gem (Refractive index: 1.544 to 1.553) and Mohs Hardness of 7.

In the contemporary market, Citrine’s most popular shade is an earthy, deep, brownish or reddish orange.

Since natural Citrine is rare, most of the Citrine on the market is the result of heat treatment, which causes some amethyst to change color from undesirable pale violet to an attractive yellow. The amethyst’s original hue can determine the richness of the resulting Citrine yellow color.

Natural Citrine links or work with manifestation, imagination, and personal will. It also represent the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing, and life-giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action.

Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages the fullness of life, fresh beginnings, and new pursuits.

Natural Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy, but rather transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels, transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. It is one of only two crystals on Earth that never needs to be cleared or cleansed. The other is Kyanite.

Citrine is a transparent, yellow variety of Quartz, ranging in color from pale to golden yellow, honey, or almost brown, and may contain rainbow or sparkle inclusions. The name comes from the French word citron, meaning “lemon”. It was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C., and because of its color, is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Gold Topaz, Madeira or Spanish Topaz, or Safranite.

Citrine is also known as the Success Stone or Merchant’s Stone. It will manifest success and abundance in your business or career. Besides wearing CItrine as a jewelery, we can also place it on our personal wealth sector in own room or on the house wealth sector in the living room.

There are several ways to derive the wealth sector, namely:
1. Using 8 Mansion Method
2. Using Personal Wealth Sector in QiMen
3. Using Annual QiMen Approach
4. Using 10 Deity (Direct / Indirect Wealth) in BaZi
5. Using Wealth Phrase in 12 Cycle
6. Using Gua Number + Flying Stars

Citrine being yellow in color is related to Earth Element in Chinese Metaphysics. The stone stimulates digestion, the spleen, and the pancreas. It helps keep skin, nails, hair healthy and is good for relieving skin irritations and allergies, especially those caused by food.

Citrine’s radiant yellow energy activates, opens, and energizes the Sacral Chakras. The Sacral Chakra is located below the belly button. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity of the body and the life force. It controls the flow of information to and fro between body and the mind.

Location: Below the navel
Colour: Orange
Organs: Urogenital system
Identity: Pleasure & Inner Child
Functions: Enjoyment of life, creativity, pleasures, desires, sexuality, emotions, inner child
Balanced Energy: Creative, emotionally balanced, open to one’s emotions, balanced sexuality

The Lower Emotional Body (connected to the sacral chakra). The lower emotional body follows the general shape of the physical and etheric bodies, but it is more amorphous and fluid, and it extends outwardly by a few centimetres. This body does not duplicate the physical body; it is more like an energy field. It contains moving energy “blobs” or “clouds” of different colours, each being felt as a specific emotion. These colours may vary from bright clear hues to dark muddy ones, depending on the type of emotions.

Annual Wealth Sector in 2022

• Jia (甲) 禄在寅
• Yi (乙) 禄在卯
• Bing (丙戊) 在巳
• Ding (丁己) 在午
• Geng (庚) 禄在申
• Xin (辛) 禄在酉
• Ren (壬) 禄在亥
• Gui (癸) 禄在子

Annual Wealth Sector (禄财位) sometimes refer to as 流年財神方. This tradditional way of calculation primarily focus on the Heavenly Stem (天干) of TaiSui (太岁) and plot the 12 Cycle or 12 Growth Phrases (十二長生).

For 2022 (壬寅), the wealth sector would be at position of Pig (亥) and has an annual star 6 in that palace. This is the area of the property/ apartment that should be more frequently use. We can use this area for financial planning and execution, goal setting or placement of enhancers (i.e Water, Crystal, Chimes, Music, Fan, Lighting, Diffuser).

Noteworthy would be 2022 the 3 Killing zone is at the North sector (approx. 313 – 45 degree), this kind of reduces the efficacy of the Wealth Sector. However, If we understand 3 Killing zone sufficiently, we would still be able to capitalised the potential of this sector to activate the Wealth Sector.

8 Mansion Numerology


This magical methodology of numerology is derive from flying the 8 Mansion Wandering Stars in a 3×3 grid.

For example, 艮卦 use the 8 Mansion Wandering Stars path for 艮. Henceforth, 艮 start 伏位 and fly the path within 艮 palace. Do this for all 8 palaces and corelate all the numbers together to arrive at the matrix above.

This numerology is useful for day to day divination, where heaven or our higher self tries to reach us (lower self) or to communicate to us through the use using signs and numbers (and numbers being the more frequently / higher occurrences).

As such, this simple method of numerology can be use on phone number, price tag, serial numbers, random book / page flipping to get a number for divination or simply adopt onto poker cards and tarot divination (i.e. 28048 = 生气 becomes hidden 绝命, hidden danger / risk in the long term). In another words, when we choose a set of phone number or car plate number, we ought to look at something along the upper quadrant for the auspicious meaning in the numbers.

Just a suggestion worth innovating and exploring; by the same logic, we could also replace the 8 Mansion Wandering Stars with QiMen Deity, Stars and Doors to add more layers to each set of numbers. To achieve a more robust approach as well as a differentiated angle of approach to deep dive into each set of numerology divination.

Demystify Academic Stars

During the era of the past, BaZi practitioner learn BaZi by way of memorize verse and poems. In the modern time, there is a rely on techonlgy such as Apps and Online Calculator.

In the poem (below), let’s take a closer look and understand the corresponding stems/ branch. And we would realize that the 4 Earth Branch often regarded as tomb or storage (i.e Dragon, Dog, Ox. Goat) are left out.


Yang Wood Corresponding with Snake
Yin Wood Corresponding with Horse
Yang Fire Corresponding with Monkey

Yang Metal Corresponding with Pig
Yin Metal Corresponding with Rat
Yang Water Corresponding with Tiger
Yin Water Corresponding with Rabbit

The Academic Stars are basically the Day Stem’s output branch (i.e. Wood produce Fire) only exception is Earth which goes on to the next element as Metal; there is a FengShui reason and application for it. The Academic Stars comes in both polarity – Yin / Yang branch that is associated with Day Stem.

In the classics, ONLY the day stem is taken as the point of reference. Whereas in modern days there is a NEW-AGE view and the BaZi year, month and hour (or even minutes) stems are regard as reference points. And, it has also been programmed and build into Apps and Online Calculator. There is no right or wrong, it’s therefore up to each practitioner application and analysis.
