Feng Shui House - Direction
What are the auspicious feng shui house direction?
In the Eight Mansions system the sitting of the house should ideally match the Kua number of the breadwinner. In the Flying Star system house are graded based on their facing direction and period of construction.
You cannot apply both systems as the same time as there are bound to be conflicts. In practice you should apply one system thoroughout.
The most important thing to do in determining the feng shui house direction of a property is to be able to differentiate between sitting and facing. You can find out more about sitting and facing here.
In the Eight Mansions system houses are divided into the East and West Group. Houses that sits N, S, E and SE belong to the East Group while houses that sits NW, SW, W and NE belong to the West group.
A East group person should ideally live in a East house and vice-versa. I emphasize 'ideally' because there are techniques to overcome if your Kua and house do not match your kua.
In the Flying Star system, houses that are or will be built in the current period between Feb 2004 and Feb 2024 are known as Period Eight Houses. During this period houses with certain facing are considered to be auspicious.
The best facings are SW1, NW2, NW3, NE1, SE2 and SE3. Houses with these facings are know as "Prosperous Mountian Prosperous Water" houses and are good for wealth and relationship. Houses that face SW1 and NE1 are also good and are known as "Combination of 10" houses.
This does not mean that other facings are inauspicious. When in doubt check with your Feng Shui consultant.
