Feng shui is mainly known as the discipline that is used for creating harmonious spaces both at home and at work. A lesser-known application of feng shui is for choosing auspicious or lucky dates for specific activities, such as starting a long journey, a new job, or a wedding. Feng shui calculations can be used for finding the best matches for a successful long-term personal or professional relationship.
You might ask how is that possible, to use the same knowledge to decorate a house using feng shui and to find the best mate? The answer is in the complexity of this ancient art and science and feng shui astrology.
Feng Shui Astrology
If you want to choose the most auspicious day for your wedding or want guidance on when you should start an important project, you will want to delve more into two schools of feng shui for guidance.
The Bazi, or Four Pillars of Destiny school, is basically a form of feng shui astrology. The calculations are based on the Bazi, or the Four Pillars, which can give you in-depth information about yourself.
Another school of thought is the 9 Star Ki school, which is another fundamental school of feng shui astrology. You can look further into the 9 Star school to get your own feng shui astrology profile. You can get valuable information about your health and home life and suggestions for colors and decorations in your home to help you achieve a harmonious balance in your life.
Most of the calculations in these two schools of thought are based on your date and time of your birth. It aligns with a Chinese zodiac sign and your feng shui birth element. You will need to investigate on your own and piece together information to get those answers. There are several charts with the information you will need for your calculations.
Or you can just cut to the chase and consult a professional feng shui astrologer or consultant who can give you the answers you are looking for with more ease.
Zodiac Signs and Charts
The concept of Zodiac signs is similar to the 12 houses of Western astrology. In feng shui astrology, you have a Chinese zodiac sign based on your birth data. Each hour, day, and month have their own expression of feng shui energy. Using this birth data, feng shui astrologers can calculate auspicious combinations for you.
For do-it-yourself (DIY) calculations, you will need three things: the chart of hours of the day, your zodiac sign and birth element, and your Chinese zodiac sign as it corresponds to the month of the year. Take a look at the corresponding animal for each sun sign in Western astrology:
