81 Combination in Flying Star

Almost all who studied Flying Star Feng Shui will know or heard of the 81 combinations. The 81 combinations comes from pairing the Sitting Star with the Facing Star. Here you will see an example of a combination read as 6 1 combination.

61 comboTechnically in Flying Star system, the top left corner is where the Sitting Star located while the Top Right hand corner is where the Facing Star is located. By convention we read the combination based on Sitting Star + Facing Star and thus why this is called a 6 1 combination.

But how do we actually interpret the flying star chart using the combinations?

There are many ways or methods to read the combinations but the pre-requisite is to first be able to link these correct sets of numbers to the house. By this I mean, how do you relate a 6 1 and 1 6 to a house. They can be different in meaning depending on the formation of landform surrounding the house. Good or Bad is all from there.

If one cannot do that then, those numbers are just a set of number as they cannot relate the house to reality.

Then if one can relate the correct sets of numbers according to real flying star methods, surely you can tell what is happening in the house. With this information, then a San Yuan Feng Shui Master can change the fortune of the occupants. In a way, having the correct understanding of the 81 combination is vital to any Master to have success in the cases.

Many people ask me how do I remember all the 81 combination because to them it seems almost impossible if not a long tedious process. I can do it only after finishing my class with Master Francis Leyau. Amazing? I can only say I found a brilliant Master who knows how to make things simple to remember but more importantly it is because it is founded on correct theories. When the theory is correct, then everything becomes clear. Simply put it, there is a short cut to remembering it.

Here is one student specifically talking about this in his testimonial…

Master Alan, first I would like to thank you for the 4 days course, the way you teach was easy to follow and understand. Never before I would think I can remember the 81 combination. I can also see my house from the combinations easily. The case study was also good. I can now understand how actually feng shui is really done. Again Big Thank you Master!

Here is an interesting question, actually in reality there is only 80 possible combinations since 1 set is missing. Which is the missing combination? You can check all the 9 period chart and 1 combination is missing.

Then why this mission combination exist in the 81 combinations? Is it just for sake of completeness ? It exists because in WuChang we can have this combination.

When you plot the flying star chart automatically you will find 8 usable combinations of numbers, however in Wu Chang School we have additional sets of numbers which allow us to tell more things than other schools & thus have a more deeper understanding of the house.

In addition to that, interpretation of the 81 Combinations can also come from one of these Feng Shui Classic books of Xuan Ji Fu , Fei Xing Fu, Zi Bai Jue and Xuan Kong Mi Zi .

To be able to interpret from these 4 major classics of Xuan Kong, one needs to understand how the classics are written but importantly the hidden meaning behind it. There are many people who attempt to interpret it from the academic point of view but somehow mostly are in accurate. When you put them together somehow they will contradict somewhere.

Apart from those methods listed above, there is another way of interpretation of these numbers and it is by the application of Yi Jing. Using Yi Jing we can convert the 81 numbers into Hexagram and interpret the numbers accordingly.

For example, if you have the hexagram Lei Feng Heng, XKMZ says one will certainly by hurt by knife while Fei Xin Fu says will have abnormal secret affair.

Converting to hexagram will give additional layer to understanding the 81 combination. For example you have a 2 5 in the house. Which will happen compared to if you have a 5 2.? Conventional methods will say they are about the same but in actual fact there will be a difference. The key is in the hexagram.

Next, when will the event happen? Sshhh….secret…

Xuan Kong Flying Star…Getting To Know The Stars 06

After talking about Star 7, next I would like to talk about Star 2 or the Ju Men Star and it is black in colour. Star 2 which is also known as 2 Black, brings sickness. What kind of sickness it brings will depend on what 2 Black meet.

It is generally an inauspicious star & bring problems to the person. This is especially true in Period of 8. However, when it is auspicious the house occupants can accumulate lots of properties.

In 2013, it resides in SW sector. Of course you will be asking how to cure Star 2. Most school recommends Wind chimes, salt water cure or brass/metal items and even calabash (Hu Lu).

In Wu Chang, we use a method called star harmony. It works perfectly so far. Do not ask me how this Wu Chang Secret works….:)


Feng Shui Questions Answered

I have been collecting questions from viewers in the poll that I have posted some time back and this is one of them which I will answer…


For your example, from the master plan, there are some sectors where the houses will enjoy better feng shui than others within the same development.

Which is a better sector that enjoy better fengshui than others?

How do we know which will be better in getting better Qi?.


My Answer:

Which sector or which row of houses within the development that will enjoy better feng shui is very much dependable on several factors.

First, we need to measure because each house has different measurement. Yes you hear me right. Opposed to conventional thinking that the same row of houses will have same direction is certainly not true. So first we need to measure to know for sure what is the Qi prevailing in each houses. What Qi is prevailing, we will have to know the Flying Star Chart. There is no short cut but to measure the house.

Secondly, the landforms surrounding the houses is different for each house. E.g. a junction could be facing 1 or 2 houses but the rest of the houses will not be subjected to this. I again re-iterate here that junctions are not necessary bad. Another way of saying is also the location of mountains, water and other factors are also different relatively to each houses. You can see the illustration below. The blue spot is at different locations for different houses in the same row.

Here I would like to remind again that land forms is not necessarily about Green Dragons, White Tigers, Black Turtle and the Red Phoenix. This is a wide misconceptions in the study of Chinese Feng Shui.

There is also the ‘Flying Star’ land forms that you need to consider. (Big Wu Chang Secret! Haha…)

Thirdly, each house in the same row may have different designs or mirror images. In Malaysia, it is now a trend where the same row has alternate designs of house such as Type A,B,C,A,B,C…along the same row of houses.

Fourthly, each house may have arranged things differently. I mean the bed, the rooms, the stove etc. Hence, your sleeping directions or the location of your bedroom, bed will also be different.

Lastly, different people have different Ming Gua, 命卦 (Life Gua or Personal Gua). The effects will also be different on different individuals.

So without measuring we won’t be able to tell for sure. Once we have measured, plotted the Flying Star chart and ascertained the above factors, then we can tell for sure the house Feng Shui.
