Eight House (Ba Yun / Ba Zhai)
Why some houses are good for one person but bad for another? How to carry a geomancy survey of your home? Let's find out:-
There are two methods of accessing the Feng Shui of a site or the interior of a home using the compass:-
1. The Eight Houses Theory
2. The Flying School Theory
Of the two methods, the Compass School's Eight Types of Houses Theory or (Eight Houses for short) is static and meant as a preliminary report to analyse which house is more suitable for an individual. In general, it is based on an investigation of a person's birth date and match this against the most suitable to the `least' suitable house.
The Flying Star Theory is more accurate and takes into consideration the time factor. It is thus an extension of the Eight House Theory. For the first time in the world, Geomancy.net has developed a software to produce a comprehensive report combining the two theories. In additional, you also get to understand the Grand Duke's Theory.
There are a total of 8 types of houses each correspond to a compass direction e.g. North, South, East, West, NE, NW, SE and SW.
The main door faces the compass direction is regarded as the orientation of the house as a whole.
