- East and West House Groups
In the Eight Mansions Formula, there are 2 groups. These groups are based on the element of the Kua numbers.
|West House||Metal||6, 7||Northwest; West|
|Earth||2, 8||Southwest, Northeast|
|East House||Wood||3, 4||East, Southeast|
In the Eight Mansions Formula, each person has four auspicious directions and four inauspicious directions.
Each House has its four auspicious directions, which have their element as shown above. Their inauspicious directions have the elements of the other group.
West House – elements are metal and earth. Their auspicious directions are Northwest, West, Southwest and Northeast. The inauspicious directions have the elements of wood, fire and water, which are East, Southeast, South and North.
Likewise, for the East House
Elements are wood, water and fire. Their auspicious directions are East, Southeast, South and North. Their inauspicious directions are of the metal and earth elements, with the directions being Northwest, West, Southwest and Northeast.
2. Feng Shui Commentary
I was introduced to the benefits of the Eight Mansions Formula personally by Master Yap Cheng Hai. He was extolling the results he had with the formula.
He was very positive about the compatibility of people within the group. He was West Group. He would only do business with people in the West Group and not in the East Group. He also mentioned other compatibility characteristics and reliability.
From my personal experience as a feng shui consultant, I have visited quite a few clients in my 20 odd years working as a feng shui consultant; I have noticed that couples with the same house group have better relationships than mixed Groups. I use this as an indicator of family harmony. Of course, it is subject to confirmation when I visit the property.
