Flying Stars (玄空飛星風水)

A Full Bodied 8 Mansion Feng Shui

In playing with 8 Mansion Feng Shui (八宅風水), a few aspects come into mind of a vivid practitioner or Masters. At some point, the 8 Mansion Feng Shui user ought to ask:

• Facing start Stability Sector (付位)
• Sitting start Stability Sector (付位)
• Door start Stability Sector (付位)
• Life Gua based Stability Sector (付位)

Some practitioners would praise the 24 mountain method of 8 Mansion (二十四山八宅), some keep to the 8 sectors, while some uses the simplier form, of purely 2 sectors: good sector vs bad sectors (吉凶好壞).

Then, at some point in the adventure, the 8 Mansion Feng Shui (八宅風水) user should also ask whether the 8 sectors are constant throughout the entire column of apartment. Because in cities, high rise are common. And, this becomes an issue for 8 Mansion Feng Shui (八宅風水) users to ponder, as the original textbook isn’t catered for high rise building and apartments. If it changes from floor to floor / level to level, how should the 8 Mansion be plotted to give a better accuracy in assessment and a more reflective application.

The 8 Mansion (八宅風水) that is typically talk about in text book and course are static. There is also a dynamic dimension to incorporate into to give the crisp in application. The dynamic dimension is basically the annual (年運) angle of 8 Mansion Feng Shui (八宅風水).

With that, it brings to another question. The derivation of Gua Number or Life Gua (命卦), we are taught to use Start of Spring as the cut off point. What if this system is inherently wrong from the start, actually winter solstice is a better relevant cut off point. Do we use 冬至一阳生 or 三阳开泰 ?

Lastly, most of the 8 Mansion Feng Shui (八宅風水). user would be missing this leg. That is the dimension of angle’in the application against the 12 phrase of growth cycle (十二長生圖) and NaYin (納音). 12 phrase of growth cycle (十二長生圖) is primary importance while NaYin (納音) is of secondary importance.
