Eight Mansions Feng Shui Methods (八宅风水)

The Eight Mansions Feng Shui Methods is another aspect of feng shui which uses a luck map to identify favourable and unfavourable directions of an individual’s personal life. A regular compass can be used to identify an area’s magnetic north, along with other directions.


Eight Mansions of Feng Shui, also called ba zhai (八宅风水), explains how every person is influenced by the eight directions of the compass. Four of these directions are identified as lucky or auspicious, the other four are bad luck or inauspicious.

This is identified using the spot where your building or house sits along with your own kua number. The eight directions of the compass are North, South, East, West, Northwest, Southwest, Northeast and Southeast.

Once your lucky and unlucky directions are identified, the data is utilized to determine which direction is best for activities, like working, eating, sleeping, exercising and many others.
