What practitioners need to focus on are the 81 Combinations – the meanings of the numbers 1 to 9 as well as their combinations in the Flying Star charts. Because there are nine numbers, there are thus 81 possible combinations. In this issue, LILLIAN TOO explains the importance of the 81 combinations.
The 81 combinations lie at the heart of Flying Star practice. Readers of this article should hopefully already be familiar with flying star charts. If not, it is a good idea to get my book “Flying Star Feng Shui Made Easy” which explains how this system of feng shui can be practiced. The 81 combinations are the numbers contained in the nine sector grids of the Flying Star charts.
It is necessary to know the meanings of the numbers, as well as the meanings of the different combinations if you want to interpret the numbers as a prelude to analyzing the energy patterns of any house.
The meanings of the numbers are easy to learn and their combinations are also not difficult. What is tough to do, and thus a lot harder to master, is to interpret them correctly and to use your interpretation to improve your feng shui using only information contained in the numbers. As with other schools of feng shui, practical applications are usually far more challenging than verbal rhetoric.
I am very happy to summarize some additional meanings of the combinations here as a supplementary to my book on “Flying Star Feng Shui for Period 8”. These additional meanings refer to the impact of the numbers in Period 8 and are excellent for reference purposes. You should read through ALL the meanings and then look out for the good and bad combinations of numbers. After that, check the numbers of the Flying Star chart that applies to your house.
