The Flying Star Feng Shui Theory

 

 

About The Flying Star Feng Shui

The Flying Star Feng Shui takes into consideration time dimenson. Flying Star chart is done on the basis of each house with inputs required of the actual direction of the main entrance.

What is macro and micro Flying Star Feng Shui?

Micro Flying Star is when Flying Star is applied to a smaller area such as the House or a room only.

Macro Flying Star is when Flying Star is applied to the Exterior surrounding of the House taking into account the House as an object as compared to just analysing the house itself.

I had read some books saying that with 7 7 combination at the entrance, it is considered very auspicious. However, when the end of the period 7, one should change the door. I wonder, does it change the period of the house from 7 to 8? When should we change the door?

Under the 20 Year Flying Star analysis, for a house built under Period 7; it is a bonus if there is a 7 7 combination at the main entrance.

2. The base number would also be looked at to find out the degree of auspiciousness of a 7 7 combination house under current Period 7.

3. Under the 20 Year Flying Star analysis, a house will (always) remain under that period if no major renovations were done in the period.

For example, For a Period 6 house; that house will continue to enjoy 6 6 combinations under Period 6 provided there is no major renovations carried out anytime afterwards.

Thus a Period 6 house with double 77 combinations will still have this birth chart even under Period 7, Period 8 or Period 9 so long as there are no major renovations.

For a Period 7 house. This is the same situation. A Period 7 house with double 7 7 will remain so during period 7 and even under Period 8, 9 & restart at 1,2,3,4 etc...

I am in the mid of balancing my house according to your Flying star report.

Most of the report suggested a lot of Metal cures, with the exception of NW using Wood cure.

Yes, you see most of the problems stars are usually Wood or Earth. Metal is thus the most commonly used cure for either of the Wood or Earth cure.

I have heard that one can apply the flying star on a plot of land. Can you please elaborate on this matter.

1. Shapes and Form is usually the most common method in analysing a plot of land:

1.1 Using the four symbolic animals concept i.e. of clear space at the front and solid support behind.

1.2 Yin and Yang concept

1.3 The Five elements concept such as the surrounding buildings. Are they generally e.g. earth element? fire element? etc...

2. For a plot of land, it is analysed usually with a built up area.

3. This is because under the Flying Star Feng Shui there are 24 directions or (mountains) or compass degrees per 24 sector at 15 degree increments.

4. For a Flying Star Chart, it is essential that the direction of the main entrance door is taken. Without this fundamental direction, no Flying Star Chart can be `drawn'.

5. Since the Flying Star Chart has the `water' star and `mountain' star or the facing (water) and sitting (mountain) position, this form of Feng Shui closely resembles Shapes and Form School of Feng Shui.

6. This is where under Para 5, the Flying Star `water and mountain' or facing and sitting' can be used to analyse a plot of land.

7. Here, if one notice carefully, it is really similar or actually is infact "Shapes and Forms" minus using the compass.

8. Therefore, when we applying the " sitting and facing " used under Flying Star, it is the same as saying that at the main entrance, one should have clear space or a water position representing clear space as water is flat.

It is good if the `sitting' position has a solid backing or a wall.

 

 

The Flying Star Theory

Introduction to The Flying Star Theory

Most of us are already familiar with the Eight  Types of Houses Theory that makes use of both  the Pakua and the Luo Shu Grid to do a Feng Shui audit of a home. It is also called by several other names e.g. The Eight House Theory, The Eight Trigram Theory or The PakuaLuoshu  Formula.

This report utilises the Flying Star Theory and the Eight  House Theory to generate a very comprehensive report. The  report generates all the good and bad stars that affects  your house at different periods using the Flying Star Theory. In addition, it provides the analysis of the good and bad sectors of the owner or breadwinner's personal chart using the Eight House Theory. The combination of the Flying Star Theory and Eight House Theory will provide you with all the necessary information to take advantage of the benefits and to resolve the conflicts that you may encounter.

The Flying Star School of Feng Shui is an extension of the Eight Types of Houses Theory as it uses the Pakua and Luo Shui Grid and more. One unique requirement is the use of the `date of birth'  of the home to analyse the house.

What is the difference between the Eight House Theory and the Flying Star Theory?

The Eight House Theory is also common known as the Best Direction or the East/West person is to find a suitable house for a person. It is also good to sit facing one's best 4 good directions either for study or in the office.

The Flying Star Theory looks at the birthdate of a house and in a particular period e.g. between 1984 to 2003, a Feng Shui expert will look at a house looking for two stars `a mountain star' and `a water star' and the relationship of both with a base number.

The advantages of the Flying Star are:

It is used to find your home's current prosperity, very auspicious and inauspicious sectors e.g. fading prosperity, sickness area etc.

In addition to the aabove, if the two stars with auspicious numbers combined, a particular area is excellent and one should take advantage of this area. Some really good houses have even two or three of such good combinations.

The Flying Star theory also `spots' areas where there is a mountain star or a water star. If so, these areas have to be activated  in order to enhance the luck. To activate a mountain star, one has to place a solid object e.g. a paper weight with mass on the wall to symbolise a mountain. For areas that has a water star, e.g. a clear space as in the front main entrance of the house is good enough.

From the above, the Flying Star Theory is the traditional method Feng Shui Masters go around to evaluate houses:-

1. It takes into consideration time factor e.g. the age  of the building and period of assessment. This was used  to the explaination of the rise and fall of dynasties and empires.

2. When we consider the main entrance door, it is not simply the Eight cardinal points of North, South, East, West, North-East,  North-West, South-East and South West; but instead, sub-divide  each compass point into three sectors. Example For North, you must identify if it is at 0 degrees, 15 degrees or at 345 degrees and then you start to plot a mathemathical model  plus also calculate the movement of two other "Flying stars."

For example a sample calcuation of a house for a 20 Year Reigning Period: 1 (1864-1883)
House Direction: South-East

Why  is it called The Flying Star Theory?

The  movement of two stars on a LuoSho grid of 3 by 3 grid is  what gave the name of the theory i.e. The Flying Star Theory.  One star on Health and the other on Prosperity. In addition  you need to calculate the stars with a base number that represents either a good or bad location.

 

 

What do I need in order to generate a Flying Star Report?

 

There are TWO requirements:-

1. You need to know the period home was built.
For a twenty year assessment, you need to know the PERIOD the building was constructed. For example, if a building was built/constructed and completed between the years 1984 to 2003, it is in the age of 7. Therefore when the software ask for the period Between 1984 to 2003, don't worry whether the building is being built, constructed or completed so long as this activity falls between 1984 to 2003 simply select this field.

Note: If there was a major renovation carried out on the house e.g. removal of the roof, tearing down of some parts of the house, additions/enlarging of rooms then you should use the date of completion of the renovation instead of the year the building was completed.

Ignore minor renovations such as re-doing the floor tiles, repainting of the house and upgrading the toilets etc. as it does not affect the date of `birth' of the building.

Anyway, don't worry unduly about this if your house is relatively new. For a house built between 1984 and 2003, any renovations carried out during the period is still within this period.

2. Determine the direction of the main entrance door.
You first need to stand in the `center' of your house and as accurate as possible determine the compass degree of your house.

The Flying Star theory uses 24 compass directions with 15 degree increments:-

Select ONLY one compass direction that closely match the main door entrance from the table below:-

For example if the compass reading for the main entrance door is between 7.5 degrees to 22.4 degrees then in the software program when asked to select the main entrance door direction, please select 15 degrees.

How do I determine which door is my main entrance?

Under Feng Shui assessment, the main entrance door is the door you commonly use to enter the house. For example, you have a main entrance door at the East. But you frequently use your garage door at the South. In this case, you should consider SOUTH as your main entrance door instead.

Why did the software generate a template with a North to South direction instead of South as in a traditional Flying Star template?

In the traditional Flying Star model, calculations were made with SOUTH on the top and NORTH at the bottom of the template. We anticipated that for most of us, it is so much easier to use a template if it faces a North to South direction similiar to an ordinary compass.  Rest assured that all calculations are the same!
