Regarding Luo Shu (洛书)

HeTu (河图) and LuoShu (洛书) numbers are debatable. The conventional (traditional) numbers are based on the development of Yin Yang (阴阳) + the Movement of Qi (Water Cycle in Nature). HeTu (河图) as Body (体) and LuoShu (洛书) as Application (用):

1, 6 = Water (向下行) → China located Northern Cold (water)
2, 7= Fire (向上行) → Southern Part feels warm (fire)
3, 8 = Wood (向外行) → Receive sunlight, growth (wood)
4, 9 = Metal (向内行) → Rains in west, more minerals (metal)
5, 10 = Earth (平行) → Central Plains (earth)

For discussion’s sake; many new-age practitioners overlay the HeTu (河图) and LuoShu (洛书) to create new model, might be interesting or perhaps even more useful of a model or (flip side) could proof catastrophic in application. In the nutshell, in the new model the Fire and Metal Element switch places in Feng Shui application. But, I’m keeping to conventional practice.

1, 6 = Water
2, 7 = Metal (Deviate from Conventional / Traditional)
3, 8 = Wood
4, 9 – Fire (Deviate from Conventional / Traditional)
5, 10 = Earth

Simply Approach to Qi Assessment for Multi Storey Apartment and Condominiums

This post talks about analysis of energy (氣) in a multi storey flats, apartments and condominiums (動宅).

The luck cycle commences once the owner moves into the apartment or condominiums. Regarding the question of sitting vs facing, for multi storey flats, apartments and condominiums facing as primary and sitting as secondary (向为主, 论納氣).

The assessment is split into 4 aspects call “君, 臣, 佐, 使” loosely translate as The King, The Minister, The General and The Envoy. Essentially, 臣, 佐, 使 must have element that produce 君).

君 or The King refers to the facing or living room of the property, it can also be the inner bright hall (大厅/ 内明堂) and it’s referenced element.

臣 or The Minister refers to the storey of the property and it’s referenced element. Depending on locality, it can be wide ranging ranges 10 to 30 storey / floors.

佐 or The General refers to which year the owner moves in during the 5 Rat Luck Cycle (五子运). For example: 2020 to 2031 is Metal Rat Cycle, referenced as Metal Element.

使 or The Envoy refers to the door of the property and it’s referenced element.
