Feng Shui & Astrology Are Inter Related

Many people thought that a Feng Shui sifu must also understand astrology, palmistry and face reading. This is not really true as there are not many masters of all trades. Having said so, there are certainly no less fraudulent gurus in the market. There is a Chinese saying:



(Master of all trades, expert of none.)


The fact is that it is sufficient by mastering a single type of occult knowledge alone as this already can make a comfortable living.


Having said so, a Feng Shui sifu must also have reasonable knowledge in astrology as they are inter related. Those people who have learnt Flying Star Feng Shui (玄空風水) should also learn the Purple Star Astrology (紫微斗數) as both systems are related to each other.


Let’s take 8 Characters (八字) for example if a person is born in winter period, fire element is very important in neutralizing the winter coldness. So, this type of person should avoid using cold color series (blue and grey) in his/her bedroom. The bedroom location should ideally not located at cold direction, namely the north.


I remembered that one of my rich client, Mr. Foo who stayed in Johor. This gentleman’s 8 characters forbids water element but he built a large man made tall wall with waterfall besides other water fountains in the periphery. As if that is not enough, Mr. Foo also constructed a large fish pond in the center of his living room. I can assure you that you will definitely be impressed with this 100 square feet mansion.


What happened next was during the year of metal (庚申); the water element is empowered to the max and Mr. Foo’s business also dropped to the historical bottom of his career. Apparently, whoever performed Feng Shui audit on Mr. Foo’s place had overlooked the importance of astrology as well.
