Dear Cecil, Firstly thank you for the fantastic site. I am begginer and eager to learn about this fascinating subject of flying stars and this site has really helped. I recently built a studio in my back garden to use for making artwork, it covers most of the south area. I looked at the flying stars for each sector in the studio and the West (which is my personal shengchi) has the stars 8-8-1-8 (sitting, facing, main, annual) which although i am a beginner I have a feeling is quite good. I'm not sure if I should sit here but facing North (not good for me as West person apparently) or if I should sit in the East sector and face West instead? Also is there a way to activate this sector? Would I try to place the lacking elements to balance it out, or would I try to emphasise this sector with more of the same energy? Or is this totally irrelevant and I'm looking to the wrong place? Best wishes, and thanks in advance.
