What do 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 instead 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.

Anyway, don't worry unduly about this if your house is relatively new. For a house built between 1984 and 2003, any renovations carried out during the period is still within this period.

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.

Select ONLY ONE compass point for the MAIN ENTRANCE. Either 0 degrees or 15 degrees or 30 degrees or 45 degrees or 60 degrees or 75 degrees or 90 degrees or 105 degrees or 120 degrees or 135 degrees  or 150 degrees or 165 degrees or 180 degrees or 195 degrees or 210 degrees or 225 degrees or 240 degrees or 255 degrees or 270 degrees or 285 degrees or 300 degrees or 315 degrees or 330 degrees or 345 degrees. Notice that each direction is in 15 degree increments.

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!

..thank Cecil for this website... Cecil Lee Cecil Lee - Feng Shui at Geomancy.Net"When I first learnt about feng shui, I had no idea there was such thing as kindergarten FengShui and the true and proper form of feng shui. I have simply accepted that fact and have followed it step by step. I have learnt many things. It's encouraged me to bring my wellbeing desires forth. Feng Shui really does bring joy into our lives - IF we apply it correctly. FIRST by starting with yourself. How is it that we can gain strong health if we drink coffee, smoke and alcohol? How do we gain a stable financial account if we tend to spend money on things we really don't need in our lives. How can you gain knowledge and wisdom if you curse and criticise? So as you can see, if we want to take advantage of fengshui, then you, as yourself must change."

"When I took action to change myself, I also felt the desire to goto church. religion is like feng shui, there are kindergarten churches, and a true and proper form of church. As i joined the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; the only true and proper form of church on this earth. life has never been any better. I love it!! It feels as if I can take advantage of fengshui as well as live a happier life I have most desired for. It has brought many blessings into the home."

"Happiness is not within money or wickedness, but love and charity, it balances your life so it will bring forward a more better and stronger YOU!"

"I would like to thank Cecil for this website. I have followed Cecil's feng shui advice and have found them work for me."

"I hope this testimony will help all realise that fengshui will not work, if you plan to be lazy about it!!" All the best, Daniel, New Zealand
