Feng Shui - Personal

There are several analysis methods that can be used to chart the Feng Shui influences of people. The two most comprehensive are the Ba Zi (example calculated by Master Coxon shown opposite) and the Tzu Wei systems, which use the year, month, day and time of birth to calculate details of a person’s Feng Shui.


Using the Ba Zi system it is possible for a specialist to calculate a person’s complete life and determine the good times and the less good ones. More usefully one can then determine what to do about it to improve things. For instance where should one live, what sort of career will be best, which direction is best for your front door and so on. It is also possible to tell to what extent a person generates their own energy and to what extent they rely on their environment. Often people who rely heavily on their surroundings for energy, find that their general energy level and vitality varies with the seasons. By knowing how that variation arises it is possible to boost their energy and for them to learn to work with the natural cycles.


Unfortunately, the calculations involved for both Ba Zi or Tzu Wei are very complex and a great deal of knowledge and experience are needed in the interpretation if the results are to be accurate.


Fortunately there is a simpler system based on the Lo Shu number calculation. Although it is less powerful and gives less information it is easy to calculate. Once calculated it acts as your personal “Key” to the building you occupy.


Here’s how to work it out

Feng Shui Ba Zi Horoscope Example

To work out your Personal Element proceed as follows:-


Find your year of birth. (The year for this calculation runs from 4/5th Feb., so if you were born on say 25 Jan 1947, your year would be 1946. If you were born on 10th Feb. 1947, your birth year would be 1947).


Then subtract 1900. (e.g. 1947 - 1900 = 47)


Now add the digits together repeatedly until you end up with a single digit. (e.g. 47-> 4+7=11 ->1+1=2)


If you are Male Subtract this from 10. This gives the Lo Shu Number. (e.g. 10-2=8, Lo Shu = 8)


If you are Female Add 5 to the number from step 3. (e.g. 2+5=7)

(If you end up with more than one digit then add these digits together repeatedly until you end up with a single digit.)


Now look up the Lo Shu number in the diagram below to get the element, direction and colour.

So for example our Male with a Lo Shu number of 8 links to the Northeast and Earth, and our Female links to West and Metal


Each person gets some of their characteristics from the element and others from the direction as follows;

The Lo Shu number also equates to a trigram, (See the table on the 8 Influences page) and wherever that trigram shows up in an analysis method, that part of the Feng Shui will affect you more strongly than other people.

DIY TIP


The Lo Shu numbers are grouped.


If your number is 1,3,4 or 9

the North, East, Southeast & South parts of a building will be better for you.

Facing those directions will also benefit you, and rooms which receive their energy from those directions will also benefit you.


If your number is 2,5,6,7 or 8

Northeast, Southwest, West and Northwest are better for you.

Your Personal Element


Each person has many elements in their make up, but one usually dominates (a bit like your Zodiac Sun sign).
