San Yuan Cycle feng shui water method
One popular feng shui method for water placement is San Yuan Formula 三元九运. San Yuan divides time into 3 eras and 9 luck pillars. Each era represent 60 years. Thus per luck pillar is 20 years. For any given period of 20 years there is an auspicious “mountain” position and 2 prosperous “water positions”.
Today we are in Period 8 luck pillar from 2004 to 2023. Northeast艮卦 is 正神位 the True God (literal translation) position. One should see high landform such as tall building in this direction. The 2 water positions are Southwest零神 and East照神. Southwest is for wealth activation and East for career or status enhancement.
Chinese fengshui classic quote 天玉經: “明得零神与正神，指日入青云” Good health & prosperity will follow if you meet the requirements of mountain & water positions.
However this is a generalisation than feng shui water positioning method. Other formulas of feng shui need to be integrated before we jump to conclusion.

Many readers and even my corporate clients the first thing they talk about Feng Shui assessment is locating the “wealth 财位” sector. My advise, you should neutralise the bad energies or “sha qi” first. While others used the online annual flying star 8 as water position to improve wealth without understanding your home destiny feng shui energy chart. This is risky because the sector can be your home destiny sick zone or conflicting area. By doing so it does more harm than good. Latent bad energy in the office is like a ticking time bomb, activating it ignorantly using water is unwise.
