WHERE IT COMES FROM?
These scripts are made known by the so-called lineage holder of ZhongZhou Pai 中州派. Please do not get confused with SuZhou Pai 蘇州派. They are entirely different thing (read HERE for details). ZhongZhou Pai 中州派 was claimed to be a less known school of XuanKong based on its principle of One Teacher, One Student, 一师一徒. It was only made known by Wang TingZhi 王亭之 via his writing ZhongZhou Pai XuanKong School 中州派玄空学. He claimed that as he has made enough fortune to retire into “Shangrila”, he no longer needs to practice this exoteric knowledge thus he decided to disclose them via his writing. It may also mean, this method may not be really reliable and therefore can be disclosed to others… Being a renaissance man, Wang TingZhi 王亭之 professed many talents ranging from FengShui, ZiWei DouShu, food critiques, linguist, tea connoisseur to Tibetan Buddhist Master. Having such illustrious profile also made him an outspoken provocateur to many areas of Chinese Metaphysics especially FengShui, with equal amounts of brickbats as well. He owes such knowledge to his lineage master from Taiwan, famed for his skill in ZiWei DouShu, having also to say that without ZiWei, there is no ZhongZhou Pai 中州派.

HARBORING STAR SCRIPT 安星訣
COMMENTARY ON HARBORING STAR
The term 下卦 is aptly more appropriate to mean Placing Gua instead of Lower Gua, as in a game of chess, 下 means to place. By the same token, before one can be Placing Gua 下卦 or making the first move, one has to lift a Gua or called Lifting Gua 兼卦. Analogically speaking, it is like lifting a chess piece and placing it in the appropriate grid thus first to lift a Gua 兼卦 then to place a Gua 下卦.
Both these processes of to lift a Gua 兼卦 then to place a Gua 下卦, by some other terminology means, a star is taking a vector flight with a point of departure and another point of arrival. Collectively, it can also be construed as a number of origination and a number of completion, one Yin and one Yang. Postulations of these sorts may lead to various interpretations and applications.
The term Harboring Star 安星 analogically speaking may means to find a home (palace) for the star to reside, just like a boat that may need to be harbored 安. Collectively Harboring Star 安星 means the natal chart of the Flying Star or the LoShu grid. Basically there are 2 ways to harbor the star, one being the conventional Placing Gua 下卦 while the other unconventional Replacement Gua 替卦.
In a more general terms, Harboring Star 安星 is a mean to identify the Qi Map of a given location. By the same token it is to identify areas of growth, prosperous, weakening, death and killing based on the structure and formation of the land. Such include identifying incoming and outgoing of water.
