THE ANCESTRAL TABLET GROWTH PROSPER SCRIPT 祖先牌生旺賦
Often when we audit a house FengShui, the ancestral tablet says a lot of thing about the household… just by looking at the inscription. The main inscription of the Ancestral Tablet usually follow the character arrangement of “Growth Prosper Script”生旺賦. This script differs from one place of origin (clans) to another.
For example, to the Cantonese community, the inscription spelt:
（姓）門堂上歷代祖先 (之) 神位
[Translated as] “(Surname) ‘door’ [meaning ancestral] hall upon generation lineage past ancestral this spiritual position”
Comprises of 11 words, following the order of “Growth, Old, Sick, Death, Extinct” 生老病死苦, whereby, Growth is the start taking the element of wood, producing fire, earth, metal, water in a producing cycle of 5 elemental interplay. The last character, must therefore sits on “growth” 生, wood.
Although the 11 words arrangement of the inscription is correct, the words within these arrangement have significant errors that not many people could understand. Foremost there are rules governing the grave and the ancestral tablets and these rules are not the same. Only true initiated practitioners would be able to discern the differences. That is why by looking at the ancestral tablet, one will understand the luck befallen the family.
So, these arrangements, （姓）門堂上歷代祖先 (之) 神位, as far as the author is concerned, even though it was claimed to have been complying with the Cantonese clan, is unfortunately incorrectly worded.
The Hakkas, as being the “Guests”Clan has technically no “ancestral village” to return to. So, they are free to choose any clan to follow.
The FuJian, subscribed to only 10 characters for the inscription, （姓）門堂上歷代祖先神位, [Translated as] “(Surname) ‘door’ [meaning ancestral] hall upon generation lineage past ancestral spiritual position”. The word, “this” (之) is not included. The reason is the “Growth Prosper Script”生旺賦 that Fujian people use is different namely, “興旺敗劣” where the last character “position” 位 is prosperous 旺.
The Hainanese, adopted a 11 characters inscription such as （姓）氏堂上歷代高曾 ‘考妣’[兩字並列當成一字] 神位, translated as “(Surname) ‘clan’ [meaning ancestral] hall upon generation lineage high [“the late” patriarch/matriarch]-[to be read as a single character] spiritual position” with “Growth Prosper Script”生旺賦 of Growth, Old, Sick, Death, Extinct” 生老病死苦, being the last character “position” 位 is “old” 老.
In summary, the last character “position” 位 for:
1. the Cantonese must sits “growth” 生;
2. the Fujian must sits “prosperous” 旺;
3. the Hainanese must sits “old” 老 and
4. the Hakka can choose other clans to follow.
This article was written in response to some Chinese articles of the same subject. Again, there is very little consensus on these. What we had written is based on our own school of thought minus the “trade secrets” of making the FengShui works…
Do YOU Want to KNOW More? Please GIVE us MORE 'LIKES'
Interesting to have dug an old article by Roger T. Ames, “The Great Commentary and Natural Cosmology, Int. Commu. Chin. Cult  2(1):1-18, dated 5 March 2015, that kept me pondering on the aspect of “The Great Commentary” YiJing 易經. What exactly are all these that plenty of people simply called it YiJing 易經?
ZhouYi 周易 can be categorically divided into YiJing 易經 and YiZhuan 易傳. The former as in the “Classics” or Jing 經 relate to “Divination” ZhanBu 占卜 while the latter as in the “Commentary” or Zhuan 傳 relate to the “philosophical view” of the later dynasty.
The Ten Wings 十翼 or “The Great Commentary” DaZhuan 大傳
These commentaries were categorised into the “Ten Wings” 十翼, “wings” being the meaning of “elevation to a higher pedestal of knowledge” typically means you ought to fly in wisdom after knowing these commentaries. The Wings comprises of:
The Yi of “Flux, Transformation and Unchanging” BianJian BuYi 變簡不易
Taking a script out of “The Great Commentary” DaZhuan 大傳, it says:
“Thus the closing of the swinging gate is called kun 坤; the opening of it is called qian 乾. The ongoing alternation of openings and closings is called flux (bian 變), and the inexhaustibility of the comings and goings is called continuity (tong 通). When something is manifest, it is called an image (xiang 象), and taking on physical form it is called a phenomenon (qi 器). To fashion and make use of these things is called emulation (fa 法). Putting them to good use in everything that is done so that all of the people can take advantage of them is called spirituality (shen 神)”
As one can see, YiJing 易經 is just not simply talking about “changes”, instead it explains about the beginning 乾 of the end 坤 and the end 坤 of the beginning 乾 of things 易:
Li,Qi and Xiang 理氣象
Often than not one would like to bastardize YiJing 易經 with other Neo-Confucius classics such as that Qi 氣 is unexplainable without the “logic” or rational behind that is called, the principle 理. It is not wrong to assume such but the actual meaning of the Heaven and Man comes together, TianRen HeYi 天人合一 has been misunderstood without the element of “manifestation” 象, owing to a political and intellectual confrontation between the school of rationalist 理學 with that of the imagery 象學 during later Song dynasty. Truly speechless when one quote the YiJing 易經 and not referring to it as this book is just not about being a normal book, reading it requires technique.
Heaven Round Earth Square 天圆地方 or The Other Way Around?
When you google this “Heaven Round Earth Square” 天圆地方, you will be served with plenty of articles pointing the geocentric approach of early astronomer looking above the sky as a “globe” and the earth reaching the furthest horizon as a “flat disc” and truly, “flat earth” proponent is never a modern phenomenon and for such reason, you get “Heaven Round Earth Square” 天圆地方. To further emphasise on such, examples were also given such as the Temple of Heaven 天壇 in the Forbidden Palace was round instead of square, the Chinese coin which is round having the centre as earth is punctured square and so forth, yet why the LuoPan or ShiPan is designed in such that the Heaven Dial which is round is inside the Square Earth plate? Earth containing the Heaven? Absurd.
Modern science had found it to be in the contrary. In fact, “Heaven is square, Earth is round” 天方地圆, taking into consideration of a spherical earth and the colossal of the multiverses and the question remains to be true, as who is correct? Let’s dug up YiJing 易經 and see what it says? “Heaven Round Earth Square” 天圆地方 in YiJing 易經 has to be given the perspective of “Flux, Transformation and Unchanging” BianJian BuYi 變簡不易.
Taking the arrangement of the Early and Later Heaven BaGua, isn’t the Heaven is Qian and the Earth is Kun implying Heaven is Li, Fire and Earth is Kan, Water? In YiJing 易經, the 5 elemental shapes prescribed that fire takes the shape of Round and Water takes the shape of Square? Thus, Heaven is square, Earth is round” 天方地圆?
Conclusion, it is very interesting to look at YiJing 易經 not from a fixed perspective but from the myriad angles of “Flux, Transformation and Unchanging” BianJian BuYi 變簡不易 and you will be dwarfed by the revelations it portend. For the readers information, these opinions were not new. It has been mentioned many times especially in the Chinese language forums for quite a number of donkey years. It is just too bad that the English forum has yet to catch up with it... This is for reading pleasures and had nothing to do with anyone or any matter whatsoever. It is only a point of view and should you disagree, it is an honor for you just to disregard it. Otherwise, a SHARE and a LIKE are some valuable and appreciative gestures you can shower us in return. Thank you.
天地人，三才 meaning Heaven Earth Man, the 3 matters, aptly to be called 三元，SanYuan has been bastardised in Chinese Metaphysics, more so in 风水，FengShui because most of the people talking about these are 江湖师，or common masters with shady pedigree. They have to resort to everything to make up the bucket full. Is ok, what to do? No right or wrong about it...
More importantly, have anyone discussed before the effects of 中天卦，or Mid Heaven Gua to the effect of FengShui? What is this? We were told that there is 先天卦，Early Heaven Gua is known to be something you want to control but you cannot control.... this is the 天，Heaven aspect of things. 后天卦，Later Heaven Gua is something you can control, but many people fails to control... this is the 人，Human aspect of things. 中天卦，Mid Heaven Gua is where you can control the uncontrollable ... this is 地，Earth aspect of things.
Did anyone explain these? I purposely wrote about 天地人盘，Heaven Earth Human Plate as a pre cursor but it does not explain the meaning of 三元，SanYuan or 三才，SanCai... many also confused that 人 aspect is 中天，Mid Heaven... entirely misleading because of the wrong perception of 人，human always in between Heaven and Earth. They are confused as to which Heaven one is measuring...
Having said that where is your 中天卦，mid heaven Gua? Go ask your 师父，Master where is this illusive things? Sure they tell you is lost.... because they will say, 连归卦，Lian Gui Gua, no longer exist. These they erred big time. Because, every legitimate 风水，FengShui method, there is 中天卦，mid heaven Gua application, otherwise the method doesn't work!
So, do you need 八字，BaZi? In BaZi, the entire trinity of 三才，SanCai is already there... The 天，Heaven aspect of the natal chart, is the 定卦，Fixed unchanging Gua, the LP, is the 易卦，the 人，human aspect.... where is the 地 Earth aspect? So, as one can see... it is not true that you need to use BaZi in order to do FengShui.... BaZi itself has its own 中天， mid heaven. No need to mix and match.
I don't blame anyone using 易经，YiJing for inspiration to make up another bucket full of craps... YiLi 易理，is the philosophical aspect governing 人 human aspect, not 地, Earth as in FengShui. That is why when we ask, how your YinYang turns, nobody can answer… This is very fundamental, but not many people knows and alas, all these 江湖师，or common masters with shady pedigree come out by the bucket loads to teach FengShui…
Often you heard that 生死有命，富贵在天，meaning Life and Death is within your Fate, Prosperity and Nobility is granted by Heaven. So you can see, it is entirely different matter. FengShui is dealing most with Nobility and Prosperity and this has to do with Heaven, something you wish to control but cannot control. Because of this people linked it with Karma, and it is one thing that is incomprehensible, Acinteyya (a pali word, please google for its meaning), yet people speaks about it pretending to be holier of the holiest. This is not FengShui...
Everyone is born in this world not as an 'untainted white sheet', each is the bearer of one own's karma. Who grant you the authority to muddle into other people's affair, especially so by using, FengShui? So you can see... that is why genuine school will tell you to 话说七分留三分，留下三分积儿孙。Quote seven points reserve three points, leaving behind three points for your children and grandchildren.... are you going to conveniently use BaZi to diagnose someone else problem and use FengShui to cure? Who are you? God?
And truly, if FengShui can only works for people who is good luck, therefore you need to vet their FengShui first, may I suggest, you don't do FengShui, stamp collection is a better choice. In fact, Good Luck people no need to hire FengShui master, anything they do is already good vibes. Bad Luck people also no need to hire FengShui master because whoever they hire is lousy Masters, so their FengShui cannot work... so why bother looking at their BaZi? No brainer isn't it?
LiChun 立春，is here today at 5:03pm. Let's be less superstitious and have a great year ahead, knowing that the Year of the Rat isn't Rat, but Zi 子，the beginning of everything prosperous, a dawn of a new beginning and don’t waste your time waiting in line at the ATM to deposit your money…

Dark Gold Divination 暗金伏断
Dark Gold Divination暗金伏断 was derived from the book called Select in Seeking the Truth 选择求真.
The book state:
Translated as: ‘Seven governing start detailed explanation, when the sun enters Xu 虚 the moon enters Gui 鬼 fire is overwhelming, water star at Bi 毕 wood star at Di 氐 metal star at Kuei 奎 position, earth asterism pushed from the wings. Apparently, it is the spin-off study of the Seven Governors and the Four Remaining 七曜四餘.
To the practitioners of Dark Gold Divination暗金伏断, they understood that these verses referred to the asterism Kang 亢, Lou娄, Niu 牛 and Gui鬼, four metal elements that can divine matters, thus given the name Dark Gold Divination 暗金伏断. When the current annual star arrived at the Zi 子 such is the star attire.
Here, there 2 more considerations to be reckoned with:
Seven governors’ governing year七政值年 are the sun, moon, fire, water, wood metal and earth classification based on the degree within the week as the starting point. In the:
Elemental governing year four asterisms grouping:
Sequence as the seven governors travel into each of the branches:
The Dark Gold Divination暗金伏断 7 governor rule states:
HOW MANY SONGS...
Turning over the pages of the peasant calendar, we often look at the peasant's chronology. In the olden day, to know the outline of the year there are methodologies such as:
How many Dragons Govern Water幾龍治水
According to the first Chen day 辰日of the first month of the year (Chen 辰 is the dragon), it is decided on the first few days. For example: -
How many Oxen Toils the Fields 幾牛耕地
According to the first few days of the Lunar New Year, the Chou 丑Day is used to determine Oxen Toils the Fields, which is the first Chou 丑Day of the year (the Chou 丑is the Ox). At the beginning of the first month, it is "a few Oxen Toils the Fields " For example, in the first day of the first month of the Lunar New Year in the 97th Year of the Republic of China, the first day of the lunar calendar was DingChou 丁丑日, so it was "one Oxen Toils the Fields." The more number of Oxen Toils the Fields the much better it is for the year.
How many Days of Happiness 幾日得辛
It is based on the "Xin" day 辛日 of the first day of the peasant calendar. The meaning of "satisfaction" in Xin also represents the meaning of happiness. The closer the Xin Day to the Arrival of Spring is better. The sooner you get the Xin Day, the more the harvest will come earlier this year. The longer you get the Xin day, the more the harvest will come later.
How many Maidens Manage the Silkworms 幾姑把蠶
According to the Qing Guangxu’s "Jiaxing Fuzhi" records:
How many Leaves the Silkworm Eats 蠶食幾葉
It is based on the first NaYin wood element 納音｢木｣ day of the New Year. To determine the number of leaves to eat. For example:
Heavenly Marshall Moves Lightning元帥行雷
The ThongShu has recorded this Heavenly Marshall Moves Lightning Method that is to use the twelve marshals to match the year’s earthly branches:
THE FARMER'S PROSE
Strange enough at one of the boxes below the Spring Ox Diagram is the Farmer's Prose in writing, telling one the weather conditions, the amount of rains, the dryness of the soil and which industry is going to prosper for the year. Wonder how many illiterate farmers going to read that?
Depends on how much of our readers liked about the knowledge of the ThongShu.... translated into the number of LIKES for this FB Page of ours, we shall indulge you on the articles about the Dark Gold Talisman Script 暗金伏斷... that is rarely explained in the English language...
THE SPRING OX DIAGRAM 春牛图
The 1st page of the Almanac 通勝, will show you the Spring Ox diagram 春牛图. It is a pictorial composition of a Spring Ox 春牛, the Oxherd or known as the Spirit of Spring 芒神 and its agricultural surrounding. One may asked, why Ox and not Pig? The reason is, given the context of an agrarian community, the Ox is the powertrain and this pictorial diagram is to inform the illiterate farmer of the outcome of the year. The Oxherd 芒神 can be portray as a youth or an Oldman. His attire tells one a whole lots of things regarding the weather of that particular year.
MOTHER EARTH CLASSIC 地母经
The Spring Ox diagram 春牛图 will not be able to tell you the fortune of the year. The fortune of the year is revealed only to the literate through the poem of ‘mother earth’ 地母经.
SANHE EIGHT MANSIONS ?
We wrote this early last month and guess what, we actually found one school claimed lineage of Eight Mansions back to the Qin and Han Dynasty… No Joke! We are very close to some other schools claim Eight Mansions back to the Zhou Dynasty…Very interesting observation on Eight Mansions... garnishing a stale plate, we asked?
Just because someone taught BaZhai and claimed the originality back to the Tang Dynasty, it is called SanHe BaZhai 三合八宅... If someone else is teaching BaZhai and claimed originality since Zhou Dynasty, what would it called? Where do BaZhai 八宅 comes from? The Classics of Dwelling 皇帝宅经？Since when SanHe 三合 plays with GuaQi 卦气？
How to establish the House Gua 宅卦？ Sitting 坐 or Seating 座？Where to measure, Door 门？What make one think the door is the 玄關 or it is entirely different thing such as the Entry Foyer? Has anyone actually measure House Gua 宅卦 by standing 3 feet away from the door or from the middle of the property? If that true try measure a shopping mall using BaZhai with all the doors and a huge space that you can't even see the door... Which door sitting do you use as your ZhaiGua 宅卦？
How do you assign your BaZhai Qi map 八宅氣圖 to the floor plan, pie versus grid? Simply smacked into your floor plan and repeat the same for the floor above?
Why BaZhai ShengQi 八宅生氣 is TangLang Wood star 貪狼木星 not TangLang Star One White Water star 貪狼一白水星？Use BaZhai remedy using 5 elements interplay 五行生克？ Must be joking... What makes FuWei 福位 better compared to WuGui 五鬼? Perhaps, how do you raise FuWei, sitting or facing?
If we think that BaZhai 八宅 is like Shen's Flying Star 玄空飞星 and pretend all the apartment units share the same chart based on the sitting and facing of the entire building, how many "client" had this "master" betrayed?
The questions simply does not end here... it only shows how confused practitioners are with regard to this system...if one cannot truly grasp the actual application to this techniques, better denounce Chinese Metaphysics and do stamp collecting instead. Don't waste time learning from the academies...
Saying that, we found - Later Heaven School of Yang Dwelling 后天派阳宅, the one school that merge eight mansions with SanHe… so technically they should be called, SanHe BaZhai 三合八宅 instead…
Later Heaven School of Yang Dwelling 后天派阳宅 was claimed to be originated in the Qin and Han Dynasties. It also claimed to be as the same lineage as the HuangShi Gong ancient FengShui 黄石公古风水 system (Wow… even predates Yang YunSong). Contradictory to its pedigree as claimed, it has really nothing to do with Later Heaven BaGua (surprise... surprise!). The term Later Heaven only referred to as the teaching that came much later incorporating the “original” eight mansions and SanHe Four Major Water Mouths.
The history of the practice was rather murky but some school claimed it has been continued in the mainland China via secret communications post cultural revolution (can you believe that?). When the Kuomintang retreated to Taiwan in 1945, it was brought to Taiwan by the sole lineage holder, the late Li HuShan 李胡山仙师 at that time. In Taiwan the arts developed further or rather flourish (whatever go to Taiwan will flourish).
The FengShui of the YinYang Dwelling based on Later Heaven School of Yang Dwelling 后天派阳宅 was derived from Daoism (any kind of FengShui that derived from Christianity please let us know). In the Qing dynasty, this knowledge was published in the form of books during the middle period of the dynasty, QianLong era (now, whatever deemed popular during this era must be taken with a large pinch of salt). It has been spread throughout. Before and after the 1980s, cross-strait relations eased, and the late Li HuShan 李胡山仙师 returned to his root back to China, but the lineage before him was somewhat difficult to trace (very convenient truth). He was survived by his daughter’s side of the family but since they had already married out into other families, and no other relatives that survived were around, his knowledge was due to be lost in time. At that time, the late Li HuShan was in his very old age. In order for the arts to be handed down for posterity, Li HuShan was willing to accept disciples elsewhere.
Zhou WenWang 周文王 founder of the ZhouYi 周易 appointed Jiang TaiGong 姜太公 as the Royal Advisor 国师. Jiang emphasise on YinYang 阴阳 and Five Elements 五行.
YinYang 阴阳 has three Qi 三气 or SanCai 三才– Heaven, Human and Earth, such as: -
1. Yang Dwelling (Human) emphasis is on Growing Qi 生旺之气.
The Growing Qi 生旺之气 is dependable on the Eight Mansion Auspicious Stars 八宅吉星 arriving at the door sector based on the sitting of the mansion 宅座. Therefore, a mansion’s Gua 宅卦 can be different from the Door Location Gua 门卦 and produce a different eight mansions star 八宅星 arriving at the door. The other theories on eight mansions八宅 are of no different from those that are available in the market but how they determine the mansion’s Gua 宅卦, which later it is taken as main star 主星 instead, is a closely guarded secret as it must be derived from the Floor, as a result from the Building and in return of such as a result from the environment or land form.
2. Land form (Earth) related to Portal Prosperous Qi 关旺之气;
Landform (Earth) and by the same token, Yin Dwelling are assessed differently. The Portal Prosperous Qi 关旺之气 is dependable on the SanHe Four Major Water Mouth Auspicious Stars 三合四大水口吉星 matching the Facing of the Grave 阴宅向. Some variant within the same school, however promoted the Sitting Mountain坐山 instead must be produced by the 4 major water mouth formation 三合四大水口. Therefore, a Yin mansion’s Gua 阴宅卦向 or land form are derived upon the 4 major water mouths 24 mountains sub division into:
As to how they derived such subdivision, is obviously from the 12 Growth Phases Double Mountain narrowed down to the 3 mountains - governed by one Gua. These are also called Three Mountains Six Line consideration 三山六线. The question again is how you measure the “portal” 关 that is yet, another closely guarded secret.
Having establish Facing, the opposite is sitting. The 24 mountains plate (External Plate – Heaven Ring) each mountain has its own Five Elements. They called this the the BaGua gold division 八卦分金 that are divided into metal, wood, water, fire, and earth – 5 Elements or they nicknamed it as the Five Lines – 五线, (so that it sounds sexy, maybe). In their lineage LuoPan it was colour coded. Some explained that these Five Lines – 五线 were derived from XuanKong Five Great Element 大玄空五行 (Very strange?). 24 mountains XuanKong Five Great Element 大玄空五行 determines the 4 major water mouth formation 三合四大水口 (please don’t panic … calm down, more surprises to come).
3. Temples (Heaven) has the power to Prosper and to Dissolve 杀旺之气.
This school took the general view that only temple can receive Killing Qi杀旺之气 of any kinds. The Prosper and to Dissolve 杀旺之气 is dependable on the Eight Mansion Inauspicious Stars 八宅凶星 arriving at the door sector based on the sitting of the mansion 宅座 or more appropriately the main star 主星. Therefore, a mansion’s Gua 宅卦 or main star 主星 can be different from the Door Location Gua 门卦 and produce a different eight mansions star 八宅星 arriving at the door and temple would prefer to tap into inauspicious star instead. Because temple is usually taken as an entire building, the conditions govern land form also applies.
Furthermore there are the classifications to the art of application as in Stillness 静, Floor 楼, Deity 神, Work 工, Wind 风 as these are the closely guarded secrets terminologies of where and how to measure the reference point, main star 主星. Each typology require different reference points such as: -
1. Stillness 静, apply to Flat Layout – Plan or detached landed house. The Room as Host 以房为主.
2. Floor 楼, apply to the multi-storey building. Star as Host 以星为主, Yang Dwelling multi-storey have a separate set of 5 elements (HeTu).
3. Deity 神, apply to temple. Flipping Trigram as Host 反卦为主.
4. Work 工, apply to the entire factory building, BaGua as Host 以八卦为主.
5. Wind 风, apply to Yin Dwelling or Graves, the 9 stars communication as Host 以九星沟通为主 based on the transformation 5 elements to establish facing in obtaining water. In other word, using the SanHe Four Major Water Mouth 三合四大水口 to establish facing or producing the sitting of the grave.
Each classifications to the art of application has its own methodology. If you understand well each of these methodologies, you will understand the secrets of the 3 Yi三易, namely ZhouYi周易, LianShan Yi 连山易, GuiChang Yi 归藏易. LianShan Yi 连山易 and GuiChang Yi 归藏易 are known as the mid heaven Gua. As the application of this art vested in how you identify the useful god 用神 as it is called the main star 主星, it is therefore how you apply the mid heaven Gua 中天卦 to control (later heaven 后天) what is uncontrollable (early heaven 先天).
These were summarized as "The wind and rain, the wonders of the mountains and the seas, the long flowing of water, the rivers and its banks, are of the one family"「呼风唤雨、山海奇观、源水长流、江河一家」. (In other words, all those things that made your head spins).
1) Eight Mansions 八宅
Later Heaven School of Yang Dwelling 后天派阳宅 demonstrated how watered down and superficial the Eight Mansions 八宅 that are circulated in the masses to date, such as the popular Yang Dwelling Three Necessities 《阳宅三要》, Yang Dwelling Great Formation 《阳宅大成》 and so on, these are the many false books for the public consumption. It claimed that during the Tang Dynasty, YiHang一行 forged a Fake FengShui book to be given to the barbarians for posterity. As a result of these fake doctrines, eight mansions as we knew today were all fake techniques.
When Eight Mansions brought down to the Qing Dynasty, a book called Eight Mansions Bright Mirror 八宅明鏡 was written. A house Gua 宅卦 is dependable on sitting 坐山 to rise FuWei 伏位. A house Gua 宅卦 is the reference point to determine the East and West groups of the eight mansions. No regards were given to the external effects of the land form and they are purely formula. It has not taken into consideration of the LianShan Yi 连山易 and GuiChang Yi 归藏易.
2) Four Major Water Mouth 四大水口
Yin House: It is available in YangGong FengShui 楊公風水, but it is not enough. It is necessary to include the application of LianShan Yi 连山易 and GuiChang Yi 归藏易, that is, after consideration such, only 48 gold divisions 分金 can be used and the 72D 龍 are rendered useless.
On the onset, when we investigated this branch of FengShui school, it looks like this school salvages all the other FengShui popular methods available and somehow stitched them together and give it a new name called Later Heaven School 后天派. It lacked the finest and the elegant of a complete doctrine of which can easily be traced from the evolution of the LuoPan rings.
However, this school attempted to garnish the stale plate of eight mansions by giving us a different perspective at defining the reference point, instead of the House Gua 宅卦 or the Life Gua 命卦, it introduces to us, a relatively new term - Main Star 主星 that almost vividly remind us of XuanKong Flying Star 玄空飞星. The definition of this Main Star 主星 is almost liked catching the Useful God 用神 of the House 宅. Different context will warrant different means to catch the Useful God 用神. As a result, given the context of Stillness 静, Floor 楼, Deity 神, Work 工, Wind 风, the Main Star 主星 or reference points are all different. It became a flux. This is only true when you investigate the notion of a House 宅. So, a House 宅 is not only define by its sitting and facing alone, but how the Main Star 主星 distributes its natal eight mansion chart and such give rise to 64 possible permutation, reminded us of 64 DaGua 大卦. But saying such, they don't actually use Gua 卦 as their reference point. Instead they use Stem and Branch 干支.
On land form, this school borrowed YangGong FengShui 楊公風水 Four Major Water Mouth 四大水口 minus the 72D. On top of it, they apply another layer of Three Mountains Six Line consideration 三山六线 that is obtained via the 12 growth phases. It may also progress into the full fledged 24 Heavenly Star Method 天星, to evaluate the Main Star 主星.
Having understood such, lets look back at these initial questions: -
We had now know that there is this branch of BaZhai 八宅 from Qin and Han Dynasties that is named Later Heaven School 后天派 that purportedly merge SanHe 三合 with GuaQi 卦气 and it is called SanHe BaZhai 三合八宅.
There isn't a need to establish House Gua 宅卦 or even Life Gua 命卦. The BaZhai Qi map is established via the Main Star 主星 that is almost liked catching the Useful God 用神.
The Main Star 主星 is predetermined by the time the building is completed. However for every floor the effects will be different due to the HeTu floor elemental interplay 五行生克.
Because it is technically a SanHe BaZhai 三合八宅, therefore BaZhai ShengQi 八宅生氣 is TangLang Wood star 貪狼木星 not TangLang Star One White Water star 貪狼一白水星.
SanHe BaZhai 三合八宅 is unfortunately, liked Shen's Flying Star 玄空飞星 and pretend all the apartment units share the same chart based on the Main Star 主星... only the other qualifying factors liked external land form and floor elemental interplay, door locations altered its degree of prosperity or calamities, as the case maybe.

WINTER SOLSTICE 冬至
There was a saying that the Winter Solstice is “Larger” than the Year, 冬大如年. What does it means? Winter Solstice 冬至 is one of the twelve solar seasonal markers denoting the peak of winter. It is supposed to be the coldest time of winter where astronomically speaking, the earth is the furthest away from the sun, yet in contrary, the northern hemisphere is also the nearest facing the sun. Such dichotomy is reflective in the saying, in the absolute Yin 太陰 the young Yang 少陽 is born. This is a time of the year when YinYang 陰陽 threshold is blurred. It is a transition time or we called, the “crossover” that usually take place in 21 Dec or 22 Dec each year. Such YinYang threshold 陰陽界 is important for most of the Chinese Metaphysical sciences like FengShui and so forth. When someone is strong enough to withstand such time of extreme cold and turbulent Qi, this someone is said to be able to survive for another year. Therefore for each passing of the winter solstice, a year was added to the age. This is known as the Winter Solstice is “Larger” than the Year, 冬大如年.
BEGINNING OF SPRING 立春
The beginning of spring 立春 is another solar seasonal markers denoting the arrival of spring usually take place between 4 Feb – 5 Feb each year. It is a time where a new chapter of the year begins. It is technically a new year. However, this again is not really a time where it is the “hottest” or “wettest” of the year, yet it is taken as a “birthday” of the year. Most of the FengShui masters in town will take this LiChun BaZi as the natal chart to predict the auspicious and calamity of the coming year, where they will probably say, the new TaiSui 太歲, SanSha Three Killings三殺 have arrived and certain location cannot have ground breaking. Saying that, some forgot about the 5 yellow actually already kicked in since DongZhi Winter Solstice 冬至 not LiChun beginning of spring 立春. With all the confusions of FengShui techniques liked XuanKong and QiMen 玄空奇門, which solar markers denote the transitions of YinYang, subject to many debates.
SOLAR TERMS 節氣
Winter solstice 冬至 and beginning of spring 立春 are but two of the 24 solar terms or JieQi 節氣. What makes these two different and not made known is the differences between ZhongQi 中氣 and JieQi 節氣. ZhongQi 中氣 are the time periods or some called the eight periods 八運 that demarcate the intangible Heaven Qi 天氣 while JieQi 節氣 are the location of the eight trigram 八卦 that governs the tangible Earth Qi 地氣. That is why winter solstice 冬至 is the coldest days of the year and not the arrival of winter 立冬 because solstices are ZhongQi 中氣. That is why, Wu 午 month and Wu 午 hour are always hot and Wu 午 year or a Wu 午 day may not necessary be hot. Saying that with the protruding of Bing 丙 doesn’t really mean the sun has arrived at the mountain 太陽到山 and therefore all evils subsided. These are all false and misleading teachings.
THE THREE FACTORS 三才
Not all Chinese metaphysics methodologies measure the same thing. The question we always asked is, which Heaven, example early, later or middle, do you measure? Which YinYang 陰陽 thresholds 界do you measure? Zi 子 and Wu 午? Chou 丑 and Wei 未? Yin 寅 and Shen 申? For example, we know that in QiMen 奇門, the YinYang Dun 陰陽遁 will change position upon entering the solstices 至. However do you use the same when you apply in FengShui using the SanHe Heavenly Star Methodology 三合天星法? You will be entirely wrong using the demarcation of Heaven Qi for a job require you to measure Earth Qi. That is the reason, without knowing how to apply the 3 factors of SanChai 三才 you will not able to construct a FengShui formation and any amount of “salt water” cure or placement FengShui water features would best be just trial and error plus a little bit of blind faiths. This is NOT FengShui.
UNLOCKING THE GOLDEN LOCK JADE PORTAL
When JayTee posted this in his FB page, apparently he was surprised that there were masters in Bolehland that were desperately teaching it at such a cheap fee as compared to someone in Kiasuland teaching the same stuff for SGD3,888 almost more than 10 times his price. Little did we realized that the contents of both subjects were more or less the same? However, the 'key' to apply such an art was nowhere to be found. It was a joke that the Bolehland master cannot differentiate between the notion of mountain and water. Therefore some student after ‘investing’ in such course couldn’t reconcile, let alone apply.
As a gesture of our compassion and sorry if you have to pay through your nose just to get this piece of information before, let us unlock the working mechanism of this method. Before that, get your introduction of this method HERE.
DEFINITION AND PARTS
This method is divided into 2 parts: -
In this paper we shall only discuss about the working mechanism of the 2nd part which is Landform YinYang 巒頭陰陽
YI PRINCIPLE OF LANDFORM YINYANG 巒頭陰陽
MAPPING INTO BAGUA 八卦洛書法
LANDFORM YINYANG FORMATION 巒頭陰陽
An extension to Naked Eye Method 長眼法 but taking into consideration the BaGua 八卦 instead of just the Four Imagery 四象.
When we do not know... it is worth a lot of money. When you were told... it doesn't worth a cent. If you look at these techniques of Golden Lock Jade Portal 金鎖玉關, you are able to recognize that it is an extension of Naked Eye Method 長眼法, which is again, an extension of YangGong’s 楊公 Heavenly Heart Methodology 十道天心法. Someway along the line FengShui master needs to make a living by dissecting all these into smaller chunks to feed the greedy masses that ultimately chase after formulas... We conclude this by saying... "FengShui F%$King WORKS!"
