Facts about the four main types of Feng Shui houses

Classical feng shui students learn about the four main types of houses in the first few days of instruction. are you homes are described in broad strokes. Two of the four are supportive of health and relationships and two are not. Two of the four support financial luck and the other two do not. But putting too much emphasis on these four categories of house types is like judging a book by its cover or a painting by its frame.

In the 20th century, these four house types received catchy descriptions, translated from more non-literal Chinese terms, so we have a house type that is now labeled “good for people/good for money” (also known as Wang Shan Wang Shui). The exact opposite type of house is known as “inverted”, as in the reverse of the best house. Then there are the two types of mixed houses, one is considered “good for people/bad for money (double seat) and the other is “good for money/bad for people” (double face).

Actually, we know that life is more complicated, and yet we all know someone who is rich but not healthy or rich but very unhappy. We also know of people who are physically and mentally strong, with loving family members and close friends, but perhaps chronic financial struggles.

Therefore, it is easy to suppose that these four main houses personal allusions they project their influence onto the occupants to create these true discrepancies. When studying Xuan Kong Fei Xing, there are actually 144 different house cards, but these 144 “flying star cards” can be grouped into the four main categories. These categories are determined based on when a house was built and what direction it sits or faces, so it’s not like seeing a house with certain physical characteristics that would be so obvious.

One of the most frustrating things I frequently encounter is a prospective client who wants me to help them in their home search and has heard about this “good for people/good for money” house and only wants to live in that type from home and not others. This is a very short-sighted way to search for a home, as what qualifies as good Feng Shui is generally based on many criteria that are not determined based solely on the orientation of the home or the year it was built. In fact, there are so many cases where a floor plan design is flawed, that it seriously undermines or nullifies the nature of the so-called best house in these four main categories.

For example, I had a client whose house was considered “Wang Shan Wang Shui” (good for people/good for money type of house). Meanwhile, the actual floor plan showed that the rooms, the entrance and the central office were in the worst parts. of the house Going back a bit, it must be understood that no house on the planet has all the inherently positive areas. On average, there are about four of the total of eight basic directional zones in any structure that are considered better or worse than the others. Here’s a specific example: For a house that was built in 1985 and faces between 160 and 170 degrees south, the best locations (on the flying star chart) will be in the northwest, north, northeast, and east sectors. The other directions (west, southwest, southeast, and south) are not inherently positive in current times for that particular type of house.

So, at this point, we haven’t even looked at the floor plan. We’re just speculating on the most positive influences for that house, being one of 144 total flying star charts to consider.

So with this house in mind that was supposed to be so good, that client had perpetual financial problems, marital problems, problems with their children, legal problems, kidney problems for both husband and wife, as well as a serious burglary in the one who lost valuables. for a total of $100,000.00. So I wouldn’t call it a “good for people/good for money” house. In contrast, I have a client who is world famous as a film and television actor, yet lives in an “inverted” type house, which is supposed to be “bad for people and bad for money”. He has a happy home life and is doing quite well in his career, which spans more than 30 years. So how is that possible? Well, aside from the feng shui overwrinkling fate, this man naturally dwells in the more positive parts of his house rather than the more negative parts. His bedroom, his office, and his convenient back door entrance fully support his good fortune. That’s why I sometimes ask my clients to provide me with a floor plan when they’re looking for a home. Many people are under the mistaken impression that all I need is an address, to look up the year of construction and the compass reading on the Internet. Without a floor plan to study, about 80% of the information is missing or based on estimates.

So now I hope I have established well that the four main types of houses cannot and do not predict exactly what kind of fortune or misfortune the occupants may experience. The basic type of house must be combined with the unique floor plan and understanding of the flow of qi, the impact of the immediate outside environment, and even personal compatibility with the house based on birth data and the occupation of the occupants.

The lesser-known fact about the four major house styles still eludes many long-time practitioners. And that important fact is that the four types of houses do not retain their status in perpetuity. Many practitioners assume “once a house inverted, always a house inverted”. And they assume the same fate for the other three types of houses. But this is actually, technically not so. To begin with, what established the four main types of houses is based on criteria relevant to the Period in which a house was built. Once a house passes its own Construction Period, it relinquishes its title as one of the four main house types.

For example, Period 5 was from 1944 to 1963. Houses built during that 20-year Era are known as Period 5 houses. However, they are no longer of the Wang Shan Wang Shui house type, inverted, double-seater, or double-sided that they originally were. In each 20-year era, there are sixteen different house types based on orientation alone and then grouped into the four main house types. However, after 1964, those Period 5 houses ceased to be defined by those definitions. In Period 8, which is from 2004 to 2023, we have houses built during this time period that are correctly classified as one of the four house types, but those periods will end in 2024 when Period 9 begins. At that point, only Period 9 houses will qualify as one of the four main house types. Houses from all other periods are exempt. We have 9 Periods that each last 20 years. This means that most houses are not one of the four main house types, even though it sounds like a category they would all fall into.

I was part of a large group of practitioners who were not initially taught the full ramifications of these house classifications. Old habits die hard and it can be a long time before the teachings become standardized to the point where each classical school or individual teacher has this more nuanced and technically correct understanding of the four main types of houses, their duration and their influence. general. Until then, many people miss out on buying or leasing large houses because they have a kind of Feng Shui tunnel vision, as if the so-called “Wang Shan Wang Shui” house is the best choice for all types of houses. outside. not so This could be like a person who feels that they can only function and be happy in one city in the world. We know that can’t be true, but this is just one of many examples where people judge properties based on too little information.
