Under the 'Flying Star' school of FENG SHUI, there are 4 auspicious directions/sectors for every individual.
These auspicious directions/sectors are known as 'Sheng Chi' or Success, 'Tien Yi' or Health, 'Nien Yen' or
Harmony/Relationship and 'Fu Wei' or Personal Development direction.
By adopting and utilising all or some of these above directions or sectors in the matching and activation of
one house, good feng shui is thus established.
In order to know whether you are a east group or west group person and your kua number, please refer to section

In the Yin and Yang balance of almanac Feng Shui, the Yin and Yang energies are segregated into the 8 main sectors
of the Pa Kua of the later heaven arrangement whereby a building facing the southeast, south, northwest and west
sectors denotes the Yang energy and that facing the east, southwest, northeast and north sectors denotes the Yin energy.
A good knowledge of the Yang and Yin energies/sectors is important when recommending the colours to apply
(for example - bright or dull, sharp or soft) to one house. it is also applied when deciding on whether
to use more or less of warm lights (Yang) as against flourescent lightings (Yin) in a house to create a balance
in the Yin and Yang energies.
Therefore in a Yin house, Yang and sharp tones of colours and more warm lights (as in limelights) are recommended
as compared to a Yang house where more flourescent lights are recommended to create a balance.
When a balance of the Yin and Yang energies is achieved, a warmth embience and a feeling of comfort is created,
which in turn will make the occupants feel contented and happy.
