There are many different schools of Feng Shui, and because one’s environment significantly affects their well-being, all are concerned with the concentric interaction of physical surroundings such as buildings, trees, mountains, rivers, roads and so on. It is believed that all placement considerations, from the smallest decorative object up to the overall design of a structure or property, constitute its Feng Shui.
One popular method of Feng Shui is the Flying Star system, which represents the nine directions and the major stars that move in and out through these quadrants. This system was probably inspired by the constellation we call the Big Dipper. This particular method is called Flying Stars due to the constant motion directional impact of these energies.
The Flying Stars are associated with the Compass School of Feng Shui. People that ascribe to this school look at the horoscope of a building. The method incorporates a building’s geographic positioning, cartographical direction, and chronologic age to create a Flying Star chart and numerological diagram. By analyzing the stars present in each the various directions one can designate in which quadrant Feng Shui appointments should be installed to reduce negative influences and to activate auspicious energies.
