Invalidating some hypothesis surrounding Flying Stars

Putting in this post to Invalidate some of my previous hypothesis regarding Flying Stars (Yes, I’ve finish testing).

Flying Stars commonly uses 三元九运 (i.e. 2024 as period 9) and uses 立春 (4 Feb) as cut off point. In 2020, the 20 year cycle, actually ties in with the Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn (approx 19.85 years). The ancient astrologer may lack science in measurement.

To correct this deviation, the Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn (Year 2020) + 冬至 (22 Dec) as cut off point.

This method is in relations to the Great Conjunction (五星连珠) in 2040 where Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus, Mercury align with Earth in a straight line.

Period 9 Starts in 2020 (instead of 2024)
Period 1 Starts in 2040 (instead of 2044)
Period 2 Starts in 2060 (instead of 2064)

And, also Invalidating, that Stars are not stagnant, just as Annual Flying Stars changes from year to year, the house chart is not fixated when the resident moves in. Instead, it changes from period to period (i.e. period 8 changes over to period 9), as the period changes, the house chart changes.

The (Unexplained) Flying Stars

The theory of 生入克入 applies to the interpalace relationship between Facing Stars. (i.e. Main Door Facing Star is 9 and Bedroom Door Facing Star is 8 and the Bed Sitting is 7 or Study Desk is 6 → Fire produce Earth, Earth produce Metal = Auspicious) or, if there is a HeTu (河图) combination (4, 9) even better. Therefore, connecting the Qi from External into the House, this aspect alone can negate the Inauspicious 81 Combination.

In using placements in Flying Stars, must take note on Sitting Stars (静态, 阴) and Facing Stars (动态, 阳). For placement sectors, look only at the Facing Stars.

And only use sectors with 山星 生 向星 = 生入 (财禄, 福) → 吉, Or 山星 比助 向星 = 比助 (财丁旺) → 吉.

For actual placements of objects, use Odd numbers as Yang and Even numbers as Yin. Example, 9, 6 in North sector, 6 is Yin so can use physical objects and water activation. 3, 9 in West, 9 is Yang so can only keep it clutter free and take in Qi flows or simply doing things in the area.

Jurong West May HDB BTO 2022

Jurong West May HDB BTO 2022 flats, bounded by Yuan Ching Road and Kang Ching Road.

First thing, notice that the water site / lake is larger than the developmental plot. And water / lake is located at East and Northeast of the developmental. The better choice within this site is the stack towards the North. Reason being the stack in a better position to receive energy of the Eastern Waters. Potential owners also need to be mindful to select a floor that has actual visual on the waters / lake (i.e. overlooking the trees by the pavement and roadside)

The water theory of this site complies to water we call as 催水, which is good for career advancement, officialdom, civil service and politics. Yet in 2 decade from now, after receiving the blooms one should seek to readjust and fine tuned as the quality of the water changes. Tipping point: Year 2044.

Robbery Mountain / Robbery Stars (劫曜煞)

If one were to grind into each ring of the Chinese Compass (罗盘), one would have developed an understanding that the closer the ring it is to the Heavenly Pool (天池), the more important that ring is during a Feng Shui assessment. In this case, the Robbery Mountain (劫曜煞).

In each sitting, cannot see mountain in the designated Gua (卦). For example, Yi Sitting (乙山) cannot have hill, mountain or physical building at Shen (申).

For those who chanced onto this post, it is your affinity and my blessings to give. In the instant if you are a Flying Stars Enthusiast and is using 7 Star Robbery, water is needed in this sector instead. For example, Qian Sitting (乾山) water is needed at Mao (卯).

Special Charts (Seven Star Robbery) in Flying Stars

7 Star Robbery – Special Chart that requires facing in the South (离). There is a link between (离, 震, 乾) early / later heaven 卦 position. There must be a Parent String, double facing star + next period star as the Sitting Star. Facing & Sitting Stars are linked by HeTu (i.e. 4, 9 and 3, 8). And, must have water at Robbery Gua (劫曜星). This Robbery Gua is the missing key in 90% of the Commercial Feng Shui Master’s assessment (As such, for those who chanced on this, it is your affinity and my blessings to give).

On hindsight, this (might) explains why Xuan Kong Flying Stars is going into a decline after 2017 as we approaches period 9. Because, in period 9 there is no special chart to ‘Market’ this Art of Flying Stars.

Parting Shot: if you know how to use the stars, any period can be a still be good chart. So, do you ‘really’ need 7 Star Robbery? My reply is ‘No’, you just need to use the Stars. Locally, many property and apartments are build with North-South Facing in mind and majority are 7 Star Robbery, yet many of these property and apartment either plague with career turbulence, health disorder or family dispute.

Special Charts (Pearl String Formation) in Flying Stars

Pearl String Formation – Grants the residents in the property with continual fame, brand, funding from investors and popularity. Good flow and compounding growth overtime.

1 – 2 – 3 (in same palace)
3 – 4 – 5 (in same palace)
6 – 7 – 8 (in same palace)
9 – 1- 2 (in same palace)

The numbers (Period Stars, Sitting and Facing Stars) in all the 9 box runs in a moving number.

External Land-form Condition, the Pearl String Chart needs a mountain / dragon / Qi mouth at the property sitting and facing. Without the external from, the formula does not have the energy source to energize the chart.

The number can run from facing to sitting (relationship) or sitting to facing (wealth opportunity). Also can include annual flying stars if the natal chart doesn’t have a pearl string. But, external land-form conditions are still a must.

Special Charts (Parent String Formation) in Flying Stars

In this special topic on Xuan Kong Flying Star called Parent String Formation – Status, Power, Absolute Control and Leadership Position.

1, 4, 7 (Original Palaces: North, SE and West)
2, 5, 8 (Original Palaces: SW, Central, NE)
3, 6, 9 (Original Palaces: East, NW, South)

For Parent String Formation to be empowered the above number needs to have external land-form. Example, the facing palace has 3, 6, 9 numbers – the East, NW and South sectors need to have a Qi Source and External land-form.

Similar to Combination of 10 and Pearl String, the annual Stars also can turn the chart to a Parent String Formation. A Parent String can be a FanYin/ FuYin Formation which means immediate change or status Quo.

In FanYin or FuYin, also take note if it happens to Sitting Stars or Facing Stars to determine if it’s a Relationship/ Health or Career/ Wealth.

Special Charts (Combination of Ten) in Flying Stars

This is a special topic on Xuan Kong Flying Star called Combination of 10 – Pure Natal Chart or Influence by Annual Stars. Important thing about Combination of 10 is the house must not have a missing sector. A missing sector is defined as an area that is more than 1/3 (33%) of the sector. And that all the stars (Period Star + Facing Star or Period Star + Sitting Star or Annual Star + Facing Star or Annual Star + Sitting Star) must be a combination of 10.

1. Facing Stars enhances wealth and business endeavors.
2. Sitting Stars enhances health, well-being and relationships.

Note: there is no way to fix a missing sector with cures and mirrors. The only way to fix a missing sector is to rebuild it.

Special Charts (Pure Elemental Qi) in Flying Stars

This is a special topic on Xuan Kong Flying Star called Pure Elemental Qi (HeTu, 河图) as the saying “The Secrets of Xuan Kong resides in the 5 Elements”. What this aspect of Feng Shui does is that it uses the Elemental Qi via HeTu combination numbers in a Flying Star Chart to induce certain outcomes to the resident of that property. And over a period of time produces the desire outcome and improvement. However, there is no possible earth combination (5, 10) element flying star combination in Xuan Kong (becasue there is only 9 grids). Therefore, Earth palace sits together or follows fire. HeTu combination in Flying Stars cures Grand Duke of Jupiter (TaiSui) or 5 Yellow Stars. Nonethelsss, there is another version of Earth aligns with Metal or Earth resides in Water. There is no end to this argument. What I can conclude is to look at the natal number 5 in conjunction with the HeTu combination, there is a relationship in this 3 numbers.

A simple analogy, for example palace 6 (has a 4, 9 HeTu metal combo in the natal palace of metal. This palace has vibrant metal energy. That enhances Will Power, Leadership and Discipline.

In nutshell, what the 5 elements resonate:
1. Fire: Passion, Vibrant, Energy, Aspiration, Positive Energy, Influence, Passion, Spiritual Energy.
2. Wood: Growth, Learning, Improving, Transformation, Self Improvement, Healing.
3. Water: Emotions, Feeling, Better Thoughts (Energy/ Vibration) attracts better reality, Clarity of Mind, Positive Mentality.
4. Metal: Will Power, Decision Making, Leadership, Discipline, Execution.
5. Earth: Stability, Security, Confidence, Sustainable Wealth.

Using good sectors and energy in the property can withstand the external killing (Sha Qi / Poison Arrow / Road Clash). Solving external problems with cure or fix is beginner’s view. Improving the energy and aspects of the resident’s life is a more advanced application of Feng Shui (Improve the People, not cure/ fix the problem), it is about taking action during positive times when the annual energy comes in.

All 3 numbers (Period Star, Sitting & Facing Star) in the Natal Chart can be used to analyse if there is a HeTu combination / element.

Using Annual Stars and Month Stars when they come in each year to forms the HeTu combination with the Natal Chart + Original LuoShu element (i.e. a 4, 9 combination must happen in palace 6 or 7 – Metal or a 2, 7 combination must happen in palace 9 – Fire or 2, 7 combination in palace 2, 5, 8 – Earth).

8 Mansion Multi Storey Method

The 8 Mansion Method can also be used for multi storey apartment using a method of flipping and extrapolation (八宅楼层翻成). Using an example below to illustrate how the storey / floors are auspicious and inauspicious Qi is derived. And from each floor/ door, the sequence is sub-extrapolate to perform the assessment.

Door / 门位 = 坤 (伏位) “Southwest”
Floor / 楼向 = 震 (祸害) “East”

Using the door to start 伏位 “Stability” in this sequence (掌诀: 伏, 生, 五, 延, 六, 祸, 天, 绝).

For Floors/ Storey up to 5:
Floor 1 土 (祸害) 凶 (楼向)
Floor 2 金 (绝命) 凶
Floor 3 水 (六煞) 凶
Floor 4 木 (贪狼) 吉
Floor 5 火 (五鬼) 凶

For Floors/ Storey up to 7:
Floor 1 土 (祸害) 凶 (楼向)
Floor 2 土 (天医) 吉
Floor 3 金 (延年) 吉
Floor 4 金 (绝命) 凶
Floor 5 水 (六煞) 凶
Floor 6 木 (贪狼) 吉
Floor 7 火 (五鬼) 凶

For Floors/ Storey more than 7:
Floor 1 土 (祸害) 凶 (楼向)
Floor 2 土 (天医) 吉
Floor 3 金 (延年) 吉
Floor 4 金 (绝命) 凶
Floor 5 水 (六煞) 凶
Floor 6 木 (贪狼) 吉
Floor 7 火 (五鬼) 凶
Floor 6 木 (贪狼) 吉
Floor 7 木 (伏位) 吉
Floor 8 火 (五鬼) 凶

Clashes and Poison Arrows

Often (especially conventional thinking) about clashes and poison arrows. There are certainly some misconceptions and the experts cope in every under the sun and classify as detrimental.

To change this thinking, there is a conventional wisdom that says (形对形论, 色对色论), meaning Shapes vs Shapes, Colours vs Colours. (i.e. opposite shop has a signboard red (火) colour vs (克) your white (金) colour. Your rectangle (木) or wave-like (水) patterns / shapes will not have an impact on the red signboard (火).

Talking about clashes from streets and roads, we also need to realign if that sector is for the period or against the period.

1. 冲在窗, clashes via windows has less immediate impact. Usually, the greater impact when the person BaZi has an annual affliction.
2. 冲在门, clashes via the door has greater impact and usually longer term as well as accidental in nature. It sometimes span across the household.
3. 冲在卦位, clash at Gua location usually denotes wealth loss and missing nobleman in career. It usually people / roles centric (i.e. NW as father and SW as mother)
4. 冲在地支, clash at Earth Branch comes with health issues. It is Zodiacs centric and activates the most when Grand Duke clashes.
5. 冲在曜煞, clashes at killing zone (Dragon Gate Eight Formations – 乾坤國寶) can be very detrimental to the household. In traditional text, it exaggerated as death in household and lack of offsprings. This is not analyzed in silos but combined with Grand Duke and other externalities to form an opinion.

In other words, if there is a clash in earth branch + killing zone activated + grand duke affliction would combine and be seen as heavy challenges for the year.

Bed Placements

1. For beds, legs/ feets as facing and headboards as sitting.
2. Bed should not have door behind or along the headboards.
3. Bed should avoid having window behind the headboards.
4. Bedrooms with windows must take note of external killings or poison arrows.
5. Bed placement must not not the clash with bedroom door.
6. Bed placement should me as middle as possible and should not overly left or right.
7. No ceiling fans
8. Bed should not face off with toilet within the room.
9. Bed should not face off with kitchen.
10. Below the bed should be empty and not clutter with stuffs.
11. Bed height should be approx knee level. This is the level for Qi Flow.

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.

Flying Stars (玄空飛星風水)

Regarding HeTu (河图)

HeTu (河图) is divided into 3 layers:

1, 2, 3 & 4 are known as producing numbers (生数) and they form the inner arrangement. Inner is Yin therefore it represent a ‘form’ a ‘body’

6, 7, 8 & 9 are known as forming numbers (成数) and they form the outer arrangement. Outer is Yang therefore it represents the ‘formless’ Qi and in layman’s terms it is known as force field, energy or aura.

5 resides in the kernel and is the separation distance between producing and forming → e.g. 1 (producing) + 5 (kernel) = 6 (forming).

As such, this draws the distinction between inner and outer arrangement, which gives rise to an important concept where the inner (阴) and outer (阳) arrangements are used separately (生成分用).

Life Gua + Flying Stars Application

  • Analyse BaZi (八字) to see what element and 10 Gods (十神) balances or missing or useful (i.e wealth)
  • Next check Life Gua (命卦) and determine what stars represent the 10 Gods (十神)
  • For Example: Life Gua = 4 巽 Wood, wealth is 8 左辅星 and  2 巨门星)
  • Take LuoPan reading at Door Facing (Opposite is Sitting)
  • For Example: Door Facing is West (兑 7), Sitting is East (震 3). 
  • Using Sitting Gua (震 – 3) to Fly ‘clockwise’ LuoShu (洛书) 9 Palaces, this set is the Left Number.
  • Using Annual Star (i.e. 2020 is Star 7 enters center to Fly LuoShu (洛书) 9 Palaces, this set is the Right Number.
  • Using Life Gua, find the number 2 and 8, which represent wealth in 10 Gods (十神) to activate it.
  • The 2 Earth Stars are North and SE (based on Sitting is East 震 3) that can be activated using water, heat or movement.
  • This method uses the house natal stars and/ or annual stars that resonate with energy of our BaZi (八字) 10 Gods (十神).
