The Flying Star Theory
© 1998-1999 Robert Lee & Cecil Lee

Introduction to The Flying Star Theory

Most of us are already familiar with the Eight Types of Houses Theory that makes use of both the Pakua and the Luo Shu Grid to do a Feng Shui audit of a home. It is also called by several other names e.g. The Eight House Theory, The Eight Trigram Theory or The PakuaLuoshu Formula.

This report utilises the Flying Star Theory and the Eight House Theory to generate a very comprehensive report. The report generates all the good and bad stars that affects your house at different periods using the Flying Star Theory. In addition, it provides the analysis of the good and bad sectors of the owner or breadwinner's personal chart using the Eight House Theory. The combination of the Flying Star Theory and Eight House Theory will provide you with all the necessary information to take advantage of the benefits and to resolve the conflicts that you may encounter.

The Flying Star School of Feng Shui is an extension of the Eight Types of Houses Theory as it uses the Pakua and Luo Shui Grid and more. One unique requirement is the use of the `date of birth' of the home to analyse the house.

Why is The Flying Star Theory more accurate?

The Flying Star Theory is considered more accurate than the Eight House for two reasons:-

1. It takes into consideration time factor e.g. the age of the building and period of assessment. This was used to the explaination of the rise and fall of dynasties and empires.

2. When we consider the main entrance door, it is not simply the Eight cardinal points of North, South, East, West, North-East, North-West, South-East and South West; but instead, sub-divide each compass point into three sectors. Example For North, you must identify if it is at 0 degrees, 15 degrees or at 345 degrees and then you start to plot a mathemathical model plus also calculate the movement of two other "Flying stars."

For example a sample calcuation of a house for a 20 Year Reigning Period: 1 (1864-1883)
House Direction: South-East

Why is it called The Flying Star Theory?

The movement of two stars on a LuoSho grid of 3 by 3 grid is what gave the name of the theory i.e. The Flying Star Theory. One star on Health and the other on Prosperity. In addition you need to calculate the stars with a base number that represents either a good or bad location.

Is there a program that calculates and analyses The Flying Star Theory?

For the first time in the Internet, you get to generate a template of good and bad locations based on the Flying Star Theory that is accurate, takes the chore of calculations and analysis of a house.

Why develop a software to calculate and analyse The Flying Star Theory?

Unlike the Eight House Theory where you simply check which house template is suitable for you, print-out the template and superimpose it on a layout plan.

While the Flying Star Theory calculation and analysis are tedious and also takes the boredom of manual calculation plus a good program would certainly improve productivity and accuracy. Now, it will also benefit anyone wanting to analyse many houses before they purchase it as the calculation is done on-line for various directions of main door entrances.

Who developed this software and how long it took to develop it?

This software was developed jointly by Robert and Cecil Lee. Countless hours were spent to bring you the most accurate program available. This is the first in the Internet! A Mandarin translated similar program will be available at a later date.

How accurate is the software?

We have carefully checked through the source code and confirmed the accuracy through numerous previous cases done manually. The report is as authentic as it can be and 100% accurate.

What I need in order to generate a Flying Star Report?

There are TWO requirements:-

1. You need to know the period home was built.

For a twenty year assessment, you need to know the PERIOD the building was constructed. For example, if a building was built/constructed and completed between the years 1984 to 2003, it is in the age of 7. Therefore when the software ask for the period Between 1984 to 2003, don't worry whether the building is being built, constructed or completed so long as this activity falls between 1984 to 2003 simply select this field.

Note: If there was a major renovation carried out on the house e.g. removal of the roof, tearing down of some parts of the house, additions/enlarging of rooms then you should use the date of completion of the renovation insead of the year the building was completed. Ignore minor renovations such as re-doing the floor tiles, repainting of the house and upgrading the toilets etc. as it does not affect the date of `birth' of the building.

2. Determine the direction of the main entrance door.

You first need to stand in the `center' of your house and as accurate as possible determine the compass degree of your house.

The Flying Star theory uses 24 compass directions with 15 degree increments:-

Select ONLY one compass direction that closely match the main door entrance from the table below:-

For example if the compass reading for the main entrance door is between 7.5 degrees to 22.4 degrees then in the software program when asked to select the main entrance door direction, please select 15 degrees.

Personal Information of the Owner or Breadwinner.

For the Full Report, the Date of Birth and Gender of the Owner or Breadwinner is essential for the calculation of the Eight House Theory which will provide a greater insight into the suitability of the house to the Owner.


How do I determine which door is my main entrance?

Under Feng Shui assessment, the main entrance door is the door you commonly use to enter the house. For example, you have a main entrance door at the East. But you frequently use your garage door at the South. In this case, you should consider SOUTH as your main entrance door instead.

Why did the software generate a template with a North to South direction instead of South as in a traditional Flying Star template?

In the traditional Flying Star model, calculations were made with SOUTH on the top and NORTH at the bottom of the template. We anticipated that for most of us, it is so much easier to use a template if it faces a North to South direction similiar to an ordinary compass. Rest assured that all calculations are the same!
