8 Mansion Feng Shui is both a granular as well as a broad based approach in planning the Feng shui of the house or apartment.
Giving this up and putting the entire sequence on this post so that the lay person can evaluate the Feng Shui Master’s capacity or simply apply this method to achieve mid term results.
Like all other Feng Shui methods and assessment the first cut is landform that is external to the house / apartment. Whether it is benign or hostile. Does it or doesn’t create flows and embrace. Thereafter, we deep dive into 8 mansion formula from broad approach to granular basis.
First, let’s look at the broad-based approach and we gradually zoom in. In this approach the door is the most important factor as the rest of the formula rests on it. Door is where Qi interact between the house and human person, so this method of my uses the door as the first cut. The Stability sector (伏位) starts at door, and using this to map of the other seven sectors of the compass around the house.
As the point of reference behind this method is main door. So, Querent do not need to bother about facing and sitting of the apartment. This is an effective method in urban city living, apartment and condominium selection.
|Door||Living Room||Master Bedroom||Kitchen|
Also, taking reference from the Main Door, these other 4 sectors (ideally) should not have externalities (i.e. dumps, boulders, construction works, dumps and sewages). Having these externalities in these sectors could trigger negative impact to health, relationship and wealth when activated by actions and/ or timing.
|Door||Place of Worship||Road, Junction,|
After this is done, we will look into the more detail aspect using the Destiny number. Ideally this number should also coincide with the suitable sector of the house to accommodate the resident in each room. There are 8 sectors (Wandering Stars Reference Table) for each destiny number.
|Destiny Number (命卦)||Destiny Number (命卦)||Destiny Number (命卦)|
We then move into another level of analysis, knowing what is of the sector means and the representation or challenges got the residence of the room is likely to face all the skill sets that he or she will develop after using that room for a period of time.
Traditionally, there are 4 auspicious and 4 inauspicious in 8 mansion, and usually we ignore or avoid the bad sector. Tweaking the perspective, maybe the bad one are just challenges to improve ourselves. So, not all inauspicious are bad and that the 8 Mansion could also be seen as 8 aspects (palaces) of our lives.
1. Creation & Wealth Palace (生气 – Life Generating), this is made up of growing Qi or energy. It induces your abilities to generate wealth or create wealth (or wealth ideas), some people with wealth come with authorities. This sector also relate about work, the qualities and capacity of your works.
2. Health & well-being Palace (天医 – Heavenly Doctor), this is regarded as the healing sector as well as assistance or support sector. Notwithstanding healing, resources help, teacher, mentor and noblemen are part of this sector. It indicate how well you get support and validation. This is also a wealth sector of salaried employees and business owner as it dictate how fast you turnaround and regenerate.
3. Social Charisma Palace (延年 – Longevity), this sector deals with networking, and the quality of long term relationship. It governs communication matters, connection, affinity, and good relationship helps people live longer, therefore it’s a.k.a the longevity palace.
4. Identity Palace (伏位 – Stability), this sector relates to one’s believe, perception, confidence, mindset and action. This sector is also where we can activate and meet our noblemen (Annual Nobleman and Natal Nobleman).
5. Adventure Palace (祸害 – Mishaps), traditionally this sector is seen as disharmony and disunity, stagnation, hatred and argument. In a contemporary light, this sector is seen as challenges and adventuring. We leave a team because goals changed, dreams differs and we argument because opinions challenges our morals, this is a palace of change.
6. Likeability palace (六煞 – Six Killing), this is related to water stars and it indicates attractiveness, charming, seduction, romance, promiscuity and of course over-indulgence. Which in negative light lead to sins, argument and breaking of relationship. Use this positively, one can become passionate in a relationship and charming to the opposite gender.
7. Spiritual Palace (五鬼 – 5 Ghost), closely related to fire element, fire relates to religious and spiritual connection, as well as dreams, thoughts and inner world guidance. This sector will be good for spiritual pursue and enlighment. Wisdom come from overcoming our inner demons. Because, this sector relates to spiritual beings, that is why traditionally, this sector is call Five-Ghost and deem that things will be stolen or missing or if one is unlucky, one will be seeing energy of another dimension.
8. Trial & Tribulation Palace, (绝命 – Life Threatening), traditionally this sector is not to be used (And, I still maintain this view). The meaning of this sector is that it often triggers important life’s lesson or lives changing lesson. When one is not physically and mentally prepared, it could take a turn for the worst.
We have plan from the entire unit to the sectors and have move on into compatibility of the room to the residence. Next we dive into the scoring method, this is where 8 Mansion becomes granular. The scoring method is meant for tight spaces, small room or work desk/ study table. Depending on how tight the space is, we can either use it to do some work, take some calls, rest, exercise and/ or meditate.

After we have identify the 8 Mansion element (i.e. Wandering Stars), we can look up the following reference table for a reference scoring. The short coming of this method is that is is lesser known and hence the 24 mountains wandering stars labels are not being craved in the LuoPan Compass. With this table, I´ve given away the application aspect of 8 Mansion Feng Shui. May the readers use it wisely and benefit the society.
