The numbers around the grid fly while the time is changing. Every hour, day, month, year and every 20-year period has its own arrangement of numbers around the square. Our sample applications will use the year and month cycles.

 The numbers in the grid have the color names. One, Six and Eight are white . Two is black. Three and Four are green. Five is yellow. Seven is red. Nine is purple.

Since the Lo Shu magic square is filled in with the Kua symbols, it becomes the eight-sided Pa Kua symbol . People identify the different Flying Star Square by the center number. The center number is called the Kua number in Feng Shui.

When looking for the auspicious area in your house using the Flying Stars Square, you need to know the shape of an area is like a pizza slice, not a square. To find the eight slice sectors is to find the center point in your house by drawing the blueprint of the house, put a compass on the center point of your house and divide your house into 8 sectors on the center point of your house. For example, the northern area is from 337.5 degree to 22.5 degree. The eastern area is from 67.6 degree to 112.5 degree.

Our applications here are simply using 8 directions of the flying stars. The Feng Shui professionals use a Lo Pan (compass) to measure at least 24 directions of a house and give people more detailed information.

Basic Applications

In the theory of the Purple White Flying Stars , there are 8 types of people and 8 types of the houses. Each type can be presented by a Kua number. The auspicious and inauspicious directions of a house or for a person can be calculated from the Kua number.

The Eastern type of persons will have a better luck, if they live in an Eastern Type house. The Western type of persons should live in an Eastern Type house to get a better luck.
