Hello, I am new over here.

I had been studying in 8 mansions from various sources and would love to be enlighten in some areas.

My house is a West (2W) house which is a 262.6-277.5 degree facing house.

Using this calculation I found that my house is having a

Tian Yi - N
Wu Gui - NW
Lui Sha - NE
Fu Wei - E
Yan Nian - SE
Sheng Qi - S
Huo Hai - SW
Jue Ming - W

But, according to the 8 mansions from a book without classifying the west into the 3 categories but only west facing house the 8 mansions was as following

Tian Yi - NE
Wu Gui - E
Lui Sha - N
Fu Wei - NW
Yan Nian - SW
Sheng Qi - W
Huo Hai - SE
Jue Ming - S

I am confused, anyone has an accurate link or guidance to an accurate calculation of 8 mansions in my house?
Thanks.

The first set is correct, sitting on East and facing West.

The second set is for house sitting on North-West facing South-East.

Thanks a lot Bernard! Really appreciate it.

Btw as said the Sheng qi is the wealth sector of my home but it is placed in the same sector with the flying star 2 (yi hak) which brings sickness. Is there any recommendation to enhance to wealth of the house?

On the other hand, the flying star 8 in the NW is also the same as the 5 ghost in the house, is there any harm activating the NW sector with a water feature?

Thanks.

Hi ROSS-LIM

Both are different school of feng shui. In the recent 7th IFSA's convention, 84 yrs Grand Master Yap Cheng Hai a 8 Mansions expert did mentioned that if your main door is located at the Jue Ming or 5 ghost sector and at the same time you also have a good flying star 8, what will happen?. According to him you will die first before you could enjoy the star 8. ha ha Drinking a toxic arsenic and health tonic at the same time. He explained that flying star changes every yearly and monthly whereas 8 Mansions is a permanent sector.

Select one type of feng shui that you are comfortable and knowledgeable and use the other as a compliment.

Dear Bernard,

Alright, cause my main door is situated in the NW which is the 5 ghost!

Maybe I should just activate it the following year when it does not clash with the number 8 star.

Last question from me, since I couldn't activate the wealth sector which is the NW, is there any other techniques I could use to enhance the wealth of my house?

Is there any basic placement or items to enhance the sheng qi?

Thanks.

Dear ROSS-LIM

If your main door is in the 5 ghost position, it will be permanently there. Why did you said that you will activate the following year? Next year NW will have star 7 which is a faded and robbery star. Anyway you may wish to place a Wu Luo in your NW sector to cure the 5 ghost.

Personally I believe that good stars and sector will work by itself and important thing is to control and avoid the bad sector if possible.

There are a lot of auspicious symbolic products in the market but to me its just a symbol and whether it works is a big question mark. So if you wish you can place auspicious symbolic products or a big leaf plant which is also good for Sheng Qi or tian yi sector.

Bernard, did you mean to write that? In Xin Mao year, 7 is in Center, and 8 is in NW
Or are you already looking forward to 2012?
Or using a different method (I know of one that adjusts annual star by house facing)

I do very much agree with

Hi Devadog,

Yes what I meant was in Xin Mao year 7 is in the center and 8 is in NW. In 2012 Ren Chen year 7 will be in NW.

Will you like to share with us your method of adjusting annual star by house facing?

Dear Bernard,

I meant that I will wait for the following year where the 8 Star moves to the West to activate it. For the time being I should let it rest.

But I still feel something left out not activating the 8 Star since its the same position with the 5 ghost.

If you have any special solutions please let me know.

Btw is there any source of information or reliable sites where I can get valuable information?

Sincere thanks.

I agree with Bernard that you should select EITHER Flying Star method OR 8-Mansions. Do a complete analysis based on ONE method and decide what is best. If your main door is in NW, then with annual 8 coming it seems worthwhile to analyze that sector (taking into account other stars, external forms, etc.) to see if you can benefit from it.

Unless you are willing to re-locate your main door, two things are facts:
1. The door is in 5 Ghosts direction - which has drawbacks.
But what is your gua and what direction does NW signify to your gua? That should be considered.
There is no issue of activating this door. If you use it and it is the qi mouth for the house, then the 5 Ghosts is at play. Possible consequences are problems for male head of house.But I wouldn't expect much bad to come of it for your house.
5 Ghosts in the NW is not so bad. It is weakening 5 Ghosts. Also, 5 Ghosts is not strong in 2011. It was strong in 2010 though.
But it really depends on many other factors as well. Not the least of which is your current luck cycle.
Either use this door, do not use this door, or move this door. Those are the choices (there are cures for 5 Ghosts, but do they really work?)

2. IF you use the door, then you are activating the sector and so activating Annual 8 next year. No further activation is needed. If the 8 there is able to help, it will. If the sector or the 8 is too compromised to do much good then it will do what it is able to do. The 8 in the NW is not particularly powerful

Next year you have the Grand Duke at your back. That may turn out to be helpful for you.

So do not get yourself all bothered. You may be in a good position to prosper. Only a complete bazi analysis and feng shui audit can really tell you.

That's my opinion.

Ross-Lim,

Does your intelligence suggest that there is a simple fool-proof method that anyone, in any circumstance, at any time can use that will enhance wealth? If such a thing were possible, why are we not all rich?

No, feng shui does not really work that way.
But it does work:
Our bazi (Four Pillars) show us that some of us can be wealthy and some cannot. Some can be wealthy at this point in our lives but not in that. Some of us can become wealthy through our own efforts, others need partners, others need a good salary-job.
With this information, we can look at our house to see if the feng shui counters our own weaknesses or makes them weaker. Some times we can do a little something to improve the feng shui. Sometimes we simply cannot. The wrong house with the wrong facing in the wrong environment cannot be made right.

For example, just as the 5 Ghosts of your W facing house is mild, the sheng qi is weak. You cannot really change that. You can, though, look at your own gua and what direction your personal sheng qi is. Perhaps it is stronger.

You can analyze your home and office. Discover which sectors have promise and which have none or are bad. Use the good ones. You can employ date selection for important business moves. If your bazi suggests you need partners then you can develop partnerships. There are other arts as well that can help you make better decisions and act at better times in better ways.
Wealth creation most often requires great human effort.
But placing a fountain or a statue will most likely not create wealth.

If there is anyone on this Forum who was poor and placed a statue or fountain and became wealthy and stayed wealthy.. please share with us!

Dear ROSS-LIM

Devadog is right and please take his advice. Feng Shui is about living in harmony with the environment A lot of people have this concept that feng shui can make a person rich over-night. Just re-called what Grand Master Yap did said that he is willing to pay one million dollars to anyone who can guarantee he will be rich immediately using feng shui. If that the case, he can easily go to the casino to make back the money and even more.

A lot depend on your destiny, man luck, earth luck, karma and education & approach of life. Your destiny may be good and enjoy good wealth but will it happen if you will to just sit at home to wait for the money to drop from the sky?.

Select one method you are comfortable and if you use 8 Mansions, spent more times in the 4 good sectors and enjoy the good Qi. Good Qi will make you think wisely and make good decision which will eventually result in good health & wealth coming to you.

Thank you all for your kind and useful guidance. Loads of appreciation.

I totally agree with all of these words of wisdom. Thanks.

I am wondering how would I know if its a weak 5 ghost or weak sheng qi? Any calculations? Or elements involved? If so where can I find out on those? And also for example how would it be deduced that the star 8 in the NW is not particularly powerful? For knowledge purpose.

Thanks!

Ross-Lim,

Each of the 8 Mansions sectors is actually associated with one of the 5 elements. 5 Ghosts is fire. When it occurs in the NW, which is metal, it spends its fire energy controlling the metal so the 5 Ghosts is relatively "comfortable" doing its thing. Much better than when it occurs in the North, where the Water of the N is controlling 5 Ghosts!
Sheng qi is wood. The South is fire...what do you think?

As to the strength of 8 in the NW it is complicated and I am neither a fs practitioner nor a teacher. But consider that the 7-metal is in the center "throne." How might the 8-Earth relate to the one on the throne?

I do not know of books in English that describe all of this and I do not read Chinese. So I cannot direct you to any resource to learn more.

Thanks! Thank you very much!

Using the concept, we can put water in the NW, cause the water can destroy fire (5 ghost) but this at the same time exhaust the metal.

But, I do get your point on how to use the elements now! Really thank you.

The 5 Ghosts doesn't require any tampering.
But if you feel you must do something, why water? That would only put it in fighting mood.
Think it through: you have Fire weakened by controlling metal. How will water fit into that relationship?
Is there any other element that might help the situation to your benefit?

Hello

Earth would be a better solution, the earth exhaust the fire and produces the metal!
