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?
