According to Flying Star theory, the numbers 1, 6, 8 and 9 are auspicious stars, while the inauspicious stars are 7, 6 and 5. 8 also represent Ken Kua, the Northeast direction, as well as the wet Earth element. This represents youthful males and signifies that during this 20-year period more males will be born than females. Kan Kua also represents stability, and as we enter Period 8 there will be less war and more freedom, proper law and order in place. Within Period 8 or Kan Kua, the hidden attribute is Wood, this signifying more green or more forest or nature that will be protected by law. Property, mining, medical issues, martial arts, meditation and Chinese metaphysic will be getting more interest in the western communities.
For easy reference, without the help of a Feng Shui consultant, you can select your home or business premises based on the three simple criteria below.
General rule of thumb
Since 2004, the beginning of Period 8, the general rule of thumb to determine an auspicious site is described as follows:
1. Front door facing Southeast
2. Front door facing South
3. Front door facing West
4. Front door facing Northwest
Moreover, keep in mind that this is a general rule and for more information, you should refer to the Period 8 auspicious site directions discussed in Appendix 2.
Southwest sees water
In Period 8 (from 2004-2023), the Water star in the Southwest governs the wealth element of a house; therefore, ideally on the Southwest side of your location should be a ‘Water’ element such as the ocean, a river, a pond, lake or road.
Northeast sees mountain
The Mountain element governs health and wellbeing and in Period 8 such a star is in the Northeast. Ideally, a mountain, hill, or a building taller than yours should be on your Northeast side.
The straight answer is NO. No legitimate practitioner will promise that Feng Shui can perform miracles. Can you earn a living without going to work? Can your business venture succeed without the proper attitude, hard work, business acumen and wisdom? The answer is obvious. Feng Shui serves as a tool to create synergies that attract opportunities conducive to enhancing your wealth, health and happiness. If you are a heavy drinker and smoker and yet want Feng Shui to enhance your health, it is rather ridiculous.
Nevertheless, when you bring together faith, determination and the aid of Feng Shui, miracles do happen!
Take a minute to ponder why some blue chip companies launched in the eighties went bankrupt or are stagnant today while in the nineties, new and breakthrough companies mushroomed and became top 100 companies. It is a Feng Shui cycle! Everything happens in cycles and is bound to repeat itself repeatedly.
