i started using feng shui flying principles since the 90s, during that time it was not that popular as compared to 八宅 theories （East and West Gua Number) which is simpler and easier to understand. However this amazing 三元玄空飞星 feng shui flying star can be use as a tool to forecast world events and economic performance.
Currently there are 2 popular feng shui schools to calculate 地运 “earth luck or timing” if you are considering to invest in properties for potential Capital appreciation in the future.
A. 三元九运 天运 San Yuan 9 Luck Period (active) and
B. 二元八运 地运 Er Yuan 8 Luck Period (passive).
Both method of calculations total up 180 years for one cycle. In order not to confuse you with feng shui technicalities one just have to understand this:
A. 后天元運 1st method Period 8 Year 2004 -2023 water direction should be in the South-West which is good for wealth. Period 9 2024 to 2043, water direction in the North.
B. 先天元運 2nd method 江东卦 Period 8 Year 1996 to 03 Feb 2016 water direction should be in the East which is also good for wealth. Ending soon! Period 9 Year 2017 to 2043 water direction in the North.
Majority of the people thought that so long your house overlooks a beautiful sea or swimming pool it means great wealth. How relevant is the water depends on the timing of the feng shui luck period, depth of water, distant and any barrier to contain the water! Currently these are 2 auspicious directions to view “water” thereby to enjoy “wealth”.
Therefore it is not ideal to see a full stretch of beautiful sea (especially deep waters) without any mountain or terrain to block it. The seas or oceans without any natural or artificial enclosed barricade is stormy and is bad feng shui. Probably is easier to understand if i illustrate why certain economies are booming while others are not. Since i am a native Singaporean, i will be using Singapore and South-East Asia to illustrate. If you have the time you take a look at the World map and you will realised why certain countries are more booming than others..all due to the water being bounded by geographical terrain and the relevant cardinal direction mentioned earlier.
I highlighted those countries that overlooks SW direction and see a hinterland to capture the “water”. Take Singapore as an example, the SW direction is nicely captured by Sumatra island. The blue hand drawn lines are the boundaries that i mentioned to hold the water. So in this case Singapore benefited from Sumatra island and Sumatra is looking at NE water bounded by Malaysia which is not beneficial. The base of the blue arrows are countries benefited from SW direction waters. Check out East side waters yourself. Hope you understand what i mean.
Currently we are in the period 8 of the cycle which starts from 2004 (commencement of Spring season) to 2024 (before commencement of Spring). This period based on 易经 Yi Jing is known as Gen Gua. The teachings of xuan kong flying star is time dynamic to reflect that the world is evolving and changing. If you have shifted into your new house after this period of year 2004 then your home or office fengshui destiny belongs to the period 8 luck cycle.
What Period 8 Gen Gua represents in fengshui
Mountain, Youngest son between the age of 0- 20/22 this is base on modern day science of life expectancy 80-89 years. Gen gua is earth or flying star 八白左輔星 is also the wealth star for this period. This got nothing to do with the pronunciation of 8 sounded auspicious . Feng shui is based on calculations and not about “sounding” good.
Gen Gua in i Ching or “Yì Jīng”, also known as the Classic of Changes, Book of Changes or Zhouyi fengshui means pause, consolidation, conservation, restriction, quietness, result, proud, stubbornness, retreat, defense, North-East region, solidarity, simplicity, revolution or stop.
Gen Gua represents hands, touch, nose, arm, backbone, stomach, joints, toes ; you may consider this as coincidence that Apple iPhone started the touch screen in year 2007 instead of buttons. During this period 8 there will be an increase in awareness in mother nature’s environment because 3 n 8 combo in He Tu 河图 is symbolic to wood, forestry, agriculture, ozone, recycling.
Gen Gua also represents people belief in “karma” and doing good.
Healthwise it represent joint problem, nervous system, mental disorders like schizophrenia, Dissociative Identity Disorder, depression, paranoia, dementia, stones in stomach, constipation, sprained muscles, rhinitis, overweight, rheumatism, gastric, loss of appetite, digestive system, spinal disc problems, brain, intestines etc
Gen Gua in fengshui represents North-East sector, so this sector is the most auspicious; thus if your main door lands in the North-East sector congratulations to you provided you fulfilled the auspicious orientations (degrees). On the other hand South-West which is the exact opposite, is best to see water.
Professions and businesses that are associated with Gen Gua are mining, motel, hotel, warehouse, departmental store, gigantic supermarket, real estate, leather, bones and joints medical specialists, paediatricians, fruits merchants, pet dog related, brain doctors like neurologist, massage, physiotherapist, CAD, interior designers/decorators, museum, ear nose throat specialist etc
Understanding Your Home Feng Shui Luck Shift
If you have not shifted for more than 9 years, chances are your house still belongs to the Period 7 feng shui home which is before 4th Feb 2004. Don’t get alarmed. The transition into period 8 may not necessary means better, it depends on the destiny of your home.
If the house that you are staying is currently enjoying good luck and health; your sitting and orientation degree is probably good. However if you have shifted into your new house before 2004 and seem that life have been miserable, you may consider changing your home or office destiny from Period 7 to a Period 8.
If changing the period is unnecessary for your home or office feng shui then you have to look out for the water flying star “8” instead of “7” or other means to adapt to the changeover in “luck”. You can consider using 城门 “gate” besides your main door which is either left or right; to find a matching star combo 1,6 or 2,7 or 3,8 or 4,9 to the orientation of the flying star. 城门一诀最为良 立宅安坟定吉昌
In this period 8, flying star 8 is the most auspicious follow by 9 and 1.
3 and 4 are bad because they are wood star and it conquers “earth” – 8
2 and 5 are bad because they represents sickness and disaster; However if you can link through professional feng shui advice the 2 stars with 8 to form the trinity of combo 2, 5 and 8 the energies are improved known as the “parents trinity gua” 父母三般卦（天玉经)
Feng Shui World
Since feng shui theories origins came from China, to use the yearly flying star to forecast world events you have to use China as the central point. So Singapore is the South-East orientation of China. This year Singapore is having the 7 & 3 combo see 2014 feng shui forecast, where you can expect accidents and poor economy.
Both the flying stars are obsolete and unlucky. 3 嗤尤 represents wood, literary, compassion, burglary, robbery, kidnap, gossips; 7 破军 represent metal, military, brotherhood, killings, prostitution; the combo is 穿心煞，刑曜，clashes, conflict, fights, 有肃杀剑锋之象，必主出人刚毅生灾，门争不和 family disharmony，出盗贼劫掠，不仁不义，unrighteous, unethical behaviour 男盗女娼.
