Dates six thousand years back and looks at landscapes and symbolism.
Tibetan Black Hat Sect School: aligns the Bagua with the front door.
Classical Feng Shui: incorporates both the Form School and the I-ching.
The Bagua is perfect and scientifically correct as it is based on the zodiac belt that surrounds earth.
The most Southern Constellation in the sky is Scorpio / Ophiuchus the snake-wrestler (Snake year sign). The placements of the Goat (Capricorn); Horse (Sagittarius); and Snake (Scorpio / Ophiuchus), therefore represents Summer / Fire / South. During this time (15 November to 15 February) the Southern Hemisphere experiences its hottest months of the year. The Scorpio is also the Phoenix rising from the ashes and therefore the Phoenix defines the South.
Moving Clockwise (because Earth rotates from West to East around its own axle towards the sun):
*Snake (Scorpio); Sag (Horse); Cap (Goat) represents: Summer / Fire / South. (Phoenix).
*Monkey (Aquarius); Rooster (Pisces); Dog (Aries) represents: Autumn / Metal / West. (Tiger).
*Boar (Taurus); Rat (Gemini) and Ox (Cancer) representing Winter / Water / North. (Tortoise).
*Tiger (Leo); Rabbit (Virgo); and Dragon (Libra) representing Spring / Wood / East. (Dragon).
The New Moon is always in the same sign as the Sun.
The Full Moon is always in the opposite sign from the Sun.
Your Chinese Sign is the sign that Jupiter lies in when you are born.
But Form School and Logic should also be incorporated:
When Europeans first moved to South Africa, they build their houses the wrong way around. They were used to building their houses to face South, where they received the most sun from. It took some time to figure out that the houses in South Africa should be build the other way around. That is the houses should face North or North-East to receive the most sun, especially in the winter months when the sun shines low. In the summer when the sun shines high, the rooms remain cool.
Flying Star School of Thought: Remains the same across the world because it is based on the movement of the planets (astrology) and on the Perihelion (earth closest to the sun / January) and Aphelion (furthest from the sun / July).
Both logic and astronomy (flying stars / science) should be incorporated. The Flying stars change all the time, but is mostly updated on a yearly basis. This is largely based on the north and south nodes (nodes of fortune) with an approximate 20 year cycle. There are three 20 year cycles which equal an overall cycle of 60 years.
Energy and vibrations to consider:
1. Earth - Form School: land formations.
2. Sun Movement: South Africa receives most sun from the North and North-East. Early morning the Sun shines from the East and late afternoon the sun shines from the West.
3. Yourself - what makes you feel comfortable and happy. How you sit, sleep and move.
4. House - which way it faces and placement of rooms, gates and entrance. The Tortoise is placed at the back of the house regardless of direction and the Red Bird to the front of the house.
5. Purusha Mandala - an invisible man (tortoise) that lies in each house and governs body parts and archetypal areas of our lives.
6. The permanent placement of the Stars:
-Sun (Zhongii Quan): Center - father, creation, growth, leadership, new beginnings.
-Moon: North-West - mother, nurturing, imagination: intuition
-Mars: West - energy, youngsters, warriors, fighting, danger.
-Mercury (Buddha / Kubera): North-East - communicating, wisdom, wealth, merchant.
-Jupiter (Guru): South - luck, expanding, growing
-Venus (Lakshmi / He Hsian Tzu)): North - luck, Love, Luxury. Plays flute.
-Saturn (Yama/ Tieh Guai Li): South-West - Iron Crutch, angry, beggar, supernatural, death.
-North Node (Rahu): - East - Growth.
-South Node (Ketu): South-East - Ganesha (obstacle remover), spiritual.
7. Flying Stars (Astronomy) - the movement of the planets.
8. Numerology: eg 2 in center and 4 in West by entrance - daughter & mother trouble.
May the energies of love, light and luck always be with you!
