Flying Stars (玄空飛星風水)

8 Mansion: Start of Spring vs Winter Solstice (8マンション風水:春の始まりvs冬至) – 立春或冬至换年柱

In the Zhuan Xu era around 4600 years ago, the ancestors had lived a settled agricultural life. After the beginning of spring, the Yang Qi floated on the ground, everything recovered, and people began to work in spring sowing and autumn harvest; in the cold winter, all things withered, people recuperated, and after another beginning of spring, people began the next spring sowing, autumn harvest and winter cultivation, and the nature is strict. The earth shows the cyclic law of the resuscitation of all things starting from the floating ground of Lichun Yang Qi. Therefore, Zhuan Xu based on the comprehensive factors of the universe, the environment and climate of China, the natural law of the growth of all things, and people’s production, practice and living habits. It is very scientific and practical to start the year with the beginning of spring.

The author believes that “HeTu” reflects the universal law of cosmic movement, while “LuoShu” reflects the special law of cosmic movement, that is, the law of a specific thing itself. (The author has a monograph in “He Luo” Overview). As far as the Universe is concerned, Yang Qi is born in the winter solstice, and Yin Qi is born in the summer solstice.

Since, the above article / discussion make sense in both aspect (Especially, the one that uses Winter Solstice). Then, shouldn’t we (also) ask ourselves…

Especially for 8 Mansion (八宅) Practitioners, have we been applying the wrong concept of plotting Life Gua (命卦) using Start of Spring (立春); or perhaps Winter Solstice (冬至) is a better representation of one Life Gua (命卦) number change. Since, Life Gua (命卦) is about playing with Gua (卦), shouldn’t this body of Feng Shui (風水) align closely with 12 Phrase Gua (十二消息卦) or iChing (已經).

Nonetheless, I recognize that there is many ways to play with 8 Mansion (八宅).

The Stable Day (定日) is an auspicious day to Start-Off or Undertake activities with a long-term horizon in mind. The English term “Stable Day” may not correctly reflect the nature of the energy for the day. “Settle-In” or “Fixation” could be a better alternative.

6 Consideration of Feng Shui (6風水の考察) – 内外六事

Traditionally, the assessment of Feng Shui (風水) can be divided into internal and external. Classified into 6 major consideration (i.e. Main Door, Living Room, Bed, Stairway, Stove, Roads etc)

Internal (内):
Main Door (大门), as the first item on the list. Hence, the main emphasis of any Feng Shui set up / formation. This is where Qi (氣) Flows enters the house. The focus of assessment centers around whether the Main Door Qi resides at an auspicious sector, whether the Door Qi produces or counters the Living Room or Siting / Mountain. And, whether the storey/ floor Qi as well as Luck Cycle produces the Main Door Qi.

Living Room (厅), the second item on the list. This is the area where Qi Flows slows down and accumulate. Whether the Living Room Qi is being produce by the Door is an important theme. Example of Living Room requirements are, the need to be spacious, higher ceiling, bright, clean and tidy.

Stairway (天阶), may not be applicable to high rise apartments. Nonetheless, this is where Qi moves around the house to the next level (internal to the house). The energy, Qi (氣) or Gua (卦) designated to build a stairway needs to be auspicious. In Flying Stars (飛星) per se, Stars 2, 3, 5, 7 should be avoided for stairway.

Bed (床), rest and rejuvenation is important to start the day afresh. Energy is required in order to pursue life’s goal. Hence, needlessly to mention the bed needs to be in a positive Gua or sector of the house. One common yet useful method of assessment is the use of Auspicious Life Gua (命卦) for Bed.

Stove (灶), in the past and big families still do most of the cooking at home. So, this typically is one factor Practitioner need to assess on. The commonly spoken water and fire clash where stove is too near the basin also ties in with food science and risk management theory.

Stone Mill (磨)→ change to study / work desk. In the past, Stone Mill is use for grinding soy, rice and other food. It act as a resource sector in the house. Now, in modern time, the relevant resource is probably seen as knowledge, skills and work related. Therefore, study / work desk need to be in auspicious sector of the house or at least align with current period.

External (外):
Roads (路), this is the main consideration for killing energy or poison arrows. Whether there is any incoming external energy clashing directly to our Living Room, Main Door or Windows. The moment you have it visual, there’s usually an impact.

Wells (井)→ change to reservoir, lakes, ponds, canals. In the past, the focused is on wells and water points in the village. In today’s world, the assessment now expands to a wider spectrum of item. The assessment of water goes back to direct and indirect spirit (零正催照).

Washroom (厕), in the past washroom are outside the house, so there a consideration whether it needs to be on the dragon side (龍), tiger side (虎) or hind side (玄武). But, washroom nowadays are internal to the house / apartment. Washroom ideally should be at the water exit point of the house or at a neutral/negative stars. Washroom also should not be opposite or behind the bed, stove or altar.

Temples / Churches (庙), this consideration holds 2 aspect. First, the shape of the building is considered a poison arrow. Second, place of worship could represent a storage of energy, wishes, prayers and consciousness, there is a concern of what if these energy are more negative than positive. Some of these places of worship also has an inbuild columbarium. Then, it affect the mental states and mood of the resident staying close by.

Bridge (桥), relates to same theory as roads. As a form of killing energy. Or blockage of Qi Flow around the exterior of the house / apartments. In modern times. The bridge also includes highways, which symbolises a cutlass slicing across the house / apartment.

Barn (牲畜栏) → change to Pet’s House/ Cottage. In the past, people rear farm animals and livestock such as chicken, pigs, cows and goats. All this give off pungent odor or attracting pest and rodents, affecting the quality of the living spaces. In modern days, as there is an increasingly number of pet owners. As people sees pets as members of the household, we need to house them in a auspicious sector so that it promote their good health and well-being. And, their movement in and out of the Pet’s House also activate the position energy flow.

Metaphysics (易学)


Elementals, alluring yet difficult to work with. There is always more than meets the eye and this definitely applies to elementals. If you have ever watched a fire burning, clouds formation, thunderstorms, river flowing or even the night sky and been transfixed by it, you have probably fallen under the power of elementals.

Elementals are natural energy; also called Devas or Djinn and are said to live in the Deva kingdom or fairy realm. Elementals are found around fireplaces, in fields, windy places, during storms, earthquakes, forest, flowing river or even seashore.

Some people have a natural affinity to make contacts with elementals which may be related to your astrological sign rather easily.

4 Pillars (四柱命理)

6 Alternatives to Improve Karma

  1. Acceptance is all about understanding that each of us is fighting an inner battle of some kind Not judging people is an important first step to managing karma. As we haven’t walk in their shoes, we don’t really know what they have been through.

  2. Forgiveness relieves us from ‘the pain’. It takes an amazingly compassionate person to forgive. Forgiveness doesn’t mean we are happy with what was done to us; it means we have move forward in love. Great things and manifestation happens to those who forgive.

  3. Gratitude is important, those who are thankful are happy. Express gratitude daily and the universe rewards us with inner peace.

  4. Reflection is to understand the good and bad we see in others exists within us. Everything we see outwards is an inwards reflection of ourselves.

  5. Energy that we send out (to the universe) will one day somehow comes back. Therefore, those who radiate positive energy will receive it right back. Moods, Vibration and Luck will improve.

  6. Reaction is the way we respond to those around us. This will determines our karma. Nothing happens by chance, everything that happens to us is so that we can learn something from it.

About Manifestation

To Know – Corresponds to Air, refers to knowledge and understanding of the work at hand. This means understanding all the aspects of the work with rituals, spells, candles, crystal, divination and spirit connection for purpose of manifestation.

To Will – Corresponds to Fire, refers to the way one conduct one’s life. The belief and commitment to various aspects of Wicca. With will, it allows one to raise, manipulate, manage and maintain focus. Thus, being able to summon and direct energy, will and focus that leads to manifestation.

To Dare – Corresponds to Water, a practitioner must dare to do manifestation without fear, going beyond physical limitations and flow with universal energies. Visualization practices helps in this aspect.

To Keep Silent – Corresponds with Earth, understanding that silence within, maintaining clear intentions, grounding and centering oneself is a key part of all manifestation. Mediation practices helps in this aspect.

Nuevo, Xuan Kong Ai Xing + Xuan Kong Liu Fa (大玄空挨星 + 玄空六法)

Did you know that if you put DXKAX (大玄空挨星) together with XKLFAX (玄空六法挨星), you would end up with some wonderful formulas.

For example, KRY (坤,壬,乙) not only is the permutations of 8 and 2 being repeated, it fits nicely to upper and lower cycle (上元,下元) as well as it also a heaven, earth and man combination (天卦,地卦,人卦). Like wise for JGS (甲,癸,申) and YGD (寅,庚,丁).

And why KRY (坤,壬,乙) is much sort after in period 8 or lower cycle, is also partly because the Flying Stars (挨星) in this set up, points to Triple-Eight (8, 8, 8) in a XKLF (玄空六法) set up. That is partially why KRY (坤,壬,乙) 巨门从头出 talks about 巨门 – Star 2 but is extremely beneficial in period 8.

While the more forceful set up for either upper cycle or lower cycle (上元,下元) are ZMW (子,卯,未), GBX (艮,丙,辛), WYC (午,酉,丑).

The more elusive set up such as XQS (戌,乾,巳), onset it would look like there is no combination of 10 in the 2 numbers, neither is there any Early and Later Heaven links. A closer look, you will notice a 1, 4, 7 (父母三盘卦) linkage.

Year 2021 belongs to the Lower Cycle (下元). Therefore, when using GBX (艮,丙,辛), WYC (午,酉,丑); these sectors need to see mountain, hills, building or receive Qi (氣). And, when using JGS (甲,癸,申) or ZMW (子,卯,未); these sectors need to have a visual on water.

壬 8,2,地
子 1,3,天
癸 3,1,人
丑 9,9,地
艮 7,7,天
寅 4,8,人
甲 3,1,地
卯 1,3,天
乙 8,2,人
辰 8,6,地

辛 7,7,人
戌 7,4,地
乾 4,4,天

As the area of the the house / apartment getting smaller, this method of flying the stars around is a more efficient way of looking at Flying Stars (挨星).

Hopefully, one day commercial LuoPan (罗盘) – physical or as an Mobile App, can incorporate this 2 ring altogether.

For those who cannot commit this formula to memory, hopefully this quick guide is of help.

Similarities of Tarot vs Playing Cards

Tarot Deck has 78 cards and it is often use in western divination while the Playing Cards or Poker Cards deck has 52 regular cards, use for playing (but, probably has hidden agenda for divination, as the mainstream religion in the past used to clamp down Tarot for divination practices).

In a tradditional Tarot Deck there are 22 Major Arcana Cards and 56 Minor Arcana Cards.

Tarot appeared in Europe around 1400s. Some metaphysicians insist it is invented, while I believe discovered is a more appropriate term.

It might have been a tool given to humanity by “Enki”, and this deviated from “Enlil”; who could have doctrinated one of the mainstream religion to farm humanity’s consciousness energy. As such, this mainstream religion oppose the use of Tarot Cards and other forms of Metaphysics practices.

With this as the background, the users of Tarot (probably) improvise and took away the Major Arcana from the deck. Thus, keeping only the Minor Arcana. The Playing Cards deck + 4 Joker Cards (elusively hidden as 4 permutations of Sword, Wand, Cups and Pentacles: 1 to 10, + King, Queen, Knight and Page). Which still pretty much as efficient as a Tarot Deck for divination and destiny reading.

The Playing Cards Deck and Tarot, Minor Arcana Deck shares these similarities: Knight (Jack), Queen, and King. But, Tarot Deck has a Page (which is represented by Joker in Playing Cards Deck).

The challenge is using Playing Cards Deck for Tarot Divination and Destiny Reading is the lacking of pictorial assistance or cues. Pictures in a Tarot Deck helps Practitioner and Querent to connect better.

Which means, a lot of passion, hardwork and commitment during those times when Practitioner using Playing Cards; as they need to memorize all 56 representation of the Minor Arcana Deck to apply the interpretation onto a Playing Card Deck.

With that, I end by sharing the 4 suites’ relevant representation in the Playing Card Deck.

   • Wands = Clubs
   • Pentacles = Diamonds
   • Cups = Hearts
   • Swords = Spades
