Magic Square, Bagua, Flying Star Feng Shui
After combining the Magic Square and the Later Heaven Bagua (a.k.a. Post Heaven Bagua), the Magic Square becomes the Nine Palace Eight Gua diagram (a.k.a. Nine-Kong Grid.), which is applied to the areas of Chinese Feng Shui, medicine, architecture, and fortunetelling.
Since the Lo Shu magic square is filled in with the Gua symbols (Trigrams), it becomes the eight-sided Bagua symbol . People identify the different Flying Star Square by the center number. The center number is called the Gua Number in Feng Shui.

Eastern Type and Western Type Houses and People
Chinese Feng Shui groups Gua Numbers into two types: the Eastern Type and Western Type. Gua numbers 1, 3, 4, and 9 are in the Eastern group. Gua numbers 2, 6, 7, and 8 in the Western group. People are divided into Eastern and Western groups by birth year. Houses are distinguished into Eastern and Western groups by the built years or the orientations of the structures.
Eastern people and houses have four types. So we have Eastern-Four people or Western-Four houses. According to Chinese Feng Shui, Eastern-Four people should live in the Eastern-Four houses and Western-Four people should live in the Western-Four houses. In this way, people can receive good energy from the environment, which brings people good luck.
Flying Star Feng Shui studies the relationship between Heaven and Humans as well as the relationship between Earth and Humans. Heaven is the sky, sun, and calendar. The Earth is the environment and the house. Following the theory of Purple White Flying Stars, we can know which are the rich houses, romantic houses, intelligent houses, debt houses, sick houses, or misfortune houses for a particular person.
We provide free Chinese Flying Star calendar to help people to boost their good energy, bring their good health, improve their social connection, and have a good love relationship.
