Eight Mansions Formula – this was first published in English by Lillian Too in the 1990s in her book “Applied Feng Shui – Pa-Kua and Lo Shu”. It was co-authored with Master Yap Cheng Hai. The book was based on an 18th Century text which Master Yap which he had used in his feng shui practice.
The Eight Mansion Formula is now “the go-to formula” for Feng Shui practitioners and enthusiasts in the Western Hemisphere. However, when you start talking to the high-level consultants in Taiwan, they come up with a different interpretation of Eight Mansions and an interesting back story. I will share this knowledge in a later post. Also, consultants and experts based in Hong Kong view this Formula as a fake.
I will devote this post to the Eight Mansions Formula as published by Lillian Too in the above-mentioned book.
Essentially, each person had four Auspicious compass directions and four Inauspicious directions. The set of directions are based on a person’s date of birth. This is to work out the Kua number. From the Kua number, you either belong to either East House or West House Group. Each Kua number has a specific set of directions.
