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).
