Feng Shui 8 Mansions

A branch of the San Yuan School of Classical Feng Shui Eight Mansions is one of the few methods still widely used by Consultants practicing both Classical and modern versions of Feng Shui.

Differences In Home And Personal Eight Mansions

There is a fundamental difference between Personal 8 Mansions and Home 8 Mansions. Personal 8 Mansions identifies positive and negative individual directions. Home 8 Mansions identifies positive and negative locations. This is an important distinction.

Personal 8 Mansions is determined from the Gua number based on date of birth. Home 8 Mansions is based on the Sitting Direction of a property. Each person and each property has their own Qi (energy) Map. The skill is to harmonise the two.

Wandering Stars

Feng Shui 8 Mansions is also known as Ba Zhai. It symbolises '8 Wandering Stars' or eight specific types of Qi; four lucky and four unlucky.

Positive Stars

  • Sheng Qi (Life Generating)
  • Tian Yi (Heavenly Doctor)
  • Yan Nian (Longevity)
  • and Fu Wei (Stability)

Negative Stars

  • Huo Hai (Bad Luck)
  • Wu Gui (Five Ghosts)
  • Liu Sha (Six Killings)
  • Jue Ming (Total Loss)

Eight Mansions Feng Shui is much more than most people are aware of. As a branch of the San Yuan School of Classical Feng Shui, Feng Shui 8 Mansions (Ba Zhai) focuses on the sitting direction of a building and the Gua numbers of its occupants.

The skill of your Consultant is to match a property and its residents. Each 'Mansion' of Home 8 Mansions is one of eight types of property. Their names match those of the eight trigrams;

  • Qian,
  • Kan,
  • Gen,
  • Zhen,
  • Xun,
  • Li,
  • Kun,
  • Dui

Within each property there are eight locations around the centre.

There are four East Group houses and four West Group houses as well as four good and four bad locations in each 'Mansion'.

Each person in Personal 8 Mansions belongs to either East Group or West Group.

At its most basic Feng Shui 8 Mansions is one of the easier methods for the individual to apply, however like all Feng Shui systems it has many levels. Analysing and interpreting these levels, the fine tuning as it were, gives you a much deeper understanding of your property and how you fit into it.

Studying the external forms through observation of the environment allows your Consultant to make recommendations on how to maximise the potential of a building for your benefit.

The element of time also plays a significant role in an accurate assessment. Each year and month, day and hour, bring a strengthening or weakening element to the Stars in each location. Identifying these interactions has a key impact in achieving a correct Feng Shui analysis.
