1、第一颗星叫[一白贪狼星]【吉星】,五行属水。一白星在得令的时候,代表官升、名气、中状元、官运和财运。失令的时候,此星为桃花劫,破财损家,甚至性病、绝症,异乡流亡。

1. The First Star is called “One White Greedy Wolf Star,” it is a FORTUNATE STAR and it belongs to the water element. When One White Star is well placed, it signifies offial favor, fame, hitting the jackpot, luck in government and financial affairs. When ill placed, this Star brings “peach blossom calamities,” bankruptcy and the loss of the home, even to the point of venereal disease and terminal illness, and wandering in exile in strange places.

2、第二颗星叫[二黑巨门星]◆凶星◆,五行属土。二黑星代表病符。此星在得令的时候并非病符,代表位列尊崇,能成霸业。但此星失令的时候,是一极大凶星,破财损家,代表死亡绝症、破财横祸,与五黄星并列为最凶之星。此星亦代表招来阴灵。

2. The Second Star is called “Two Black Huge Door Star,” it is an UNFORTUNATE STAR, and it belongs to the earth element. Two Black Star betokens disease.

This star also signifies the summoning of evil spirits.

3. The Third Star is called “Three Jade Rewards Star,” it is an UNFORTUNATE STAR and among the five elements it belongs to wood. Three Jade Star represents (quarrels about) right and wrong.

This star also must bring evil spirits.

6、第六颗星叫[六白武曲星]【吉星】,五行属金。六白是偏财星,与一白、八白合称三大财星。六白得令时丁财两旺,失令时,为失财星,可令倾家荡产。

6. The Sixth Star is called “Six White Military Arts Star,” it is a FORTUNATE STAR, and among the five elements it belongs to metal.

But when ill placed, this is a star of “peach blossom” calamity, harming capacity and destyroying wealth, and it also emphasizes fire disaster, explosions, heart disease, eye disorders, bleeding and so forth.

看到这里,你应该明白为什么很多成功人士总结经验时会说:我只是在合适的时间,在合适的地方,做合适的事情,所以我成功了。可能他真的是不懂九宫飞星,但是他确实是碰到了他说的”合适”,这才会成就了他的丰功伟业。风水轮流转是千古定律,生活中的每一件事情都离不开九宫飞星,如果你说你的生活中没有这回事,那只能说这是你的损失,朋友,请记住:诸葛亮也是凡人,只不过他知道的方法比你多一点而已。好好利用上面提到的飞星得令的时候做你的事情。

((The Chinese encyclopedia, believe it or not, then adds this injunction:))

Having seen this far, you should understand why many successful people in summarizing their experience say: “I only did suitable things at suitable times, and in suitable places, and so I have succeeded.” It’s possible that they don’t really understand Nine Palace Flying Stars, but that they have really encountered what they call “suitable,” and only thus have accomplished the brilliant success of their great endeavor. The reversal of fortune is an eternal law, every affair in life is inseparable from Nine Palace Flying Stars, and if you say this doesn’t apply to you, this can only be said to be your loss, friends, please remember: Zhu Geliang (mastermind in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms) was also just an ordinary person, it’s only that he knew a few more expedients than you. Aptly make use of the times when the Nine Stars are well placed to conduct your affairs.

((Here’s how we make that determination of whether these Stars are well placed or not, it’s in the relationship between the characteristics of the unchanging gua of the direction to which a particular Star has flown, and the individual characteristics of that Star, as given above. Here’s those gua, with the Luo Shu, which is that starting point from which these Stars start to fly, the only condition of the matrix in which all Nine Stars are well placed, in the center. The Luo Shu is only true for one year in nine, and it’s not this year (2015):))

Predictive Implications of the Eight Trigrams (Bagua)

Source: Baidu Online Encyclopedia on Bagua

☰ 乾 (qián)乾为天卦像
乾卦阳刚,刚健,自强不息。乾六爻皆盈滴,故肥园,圆满、亭通,成功、重大。但刚多易折,含欠安之像。人物表示为上级、领导、当官的,执法者,有钱而富贵者,司机。

Qian gua (☰ 乾) is Heaven, Metal Element, NW.

Qian gua is masculine, energetic and robust, and continuously strives for self-improvement. Predictions from Qian are always pregnant with meaning and so abundant, complete, exhaustive, successful, and great. But if further change is lacking, it augurs ill. for personalities it expresses high-class, leaders, and officials, law enforcement, having high rank from money, and taxi drivers.

☷ 坤(kūn)坤为地卦像
坤卦阴柔,地道贤生;厚载万物,运行不息而前进无疆,有顺畅之像。坤六爻皆虚,断有破裂之像,明暗、陷害、静止,测出行不走,行人不归。人物表示小人(由天大地小而取)。

Kūn gua (☷ 坤) is Earth, SW

Kūn gua is feminine, thoroughly worthy and virtuous; she deeply supports the ten thousand things, and presses forward without limits with ceaseless motion, and has a smooth and unhindered appearance. Kūn’s predictions are all empty, and are definitely disruptive, dark, entrapping, immobile, auguring that one cannot get out by trying, and travelers (having moved out) cannot return. For personalities it means a vile character (taken from the smallness of Earth compared to the greatness of Heaven).

☳ 震(Zhèn)震为雷卦像
震卦重雷交叠,相与往来,震而动起出。震动,震惊鸣叫,惊惕,再三思考,好动。建功立业,声名大振。森林,树林。八纯卦,吉顺而有波折,肝旺易怒,惊恐,肝病,抽筋,伤脾胃。

Zhèn gua (☳ 震) is Thunder, Wood Element, E.

Zhèn gua is repeated overlapping thunder, one clap following another. The tremblings and shock of the thunder cause the birds to cry out, are terrifying and frightening, and pondering them over and over again, are very moving. On starting a construction project, it causes a sensation about the achievement of the goal. Forests become groves. Among the eight pure gua, twists and turns follow good fortune, and when the liver (yin wood) is flourishing, it is easy to have anger, terror, liver disease, cramps, and injury to the spleen and stomach.

☴ 巽(xùn)巽为风卦像
巽卦“柔而又柔,前风往而后风复兴,相随不息,柔和如春风,随风而顺。”巽顺,顺从,进入而下伏。重巽申令,气功,双床双桌相并连,作生意可获三倍之利,头发稀少,草木丛生。活跃,坐不住,静不下来,测事比和吉。肝胆疾病,坐骨神经痛,股部疼痛,风湿中风,脾胃欠佳。

Xùn gua (☴ 巽) is Wind, Wood Element, SE.

Xùn gua is “Softness upon softness, when one breeze is gone another arises, ceaselessly continuing, gentle like the spring wind, favorable like following the wind.” When Xùn is fovorable and complies, it enters in and conceals itself. When a heavy wind starts giving out orders and monipulating energy, so that both sides’ tables and beds are touching, it increases business threefold, and the more the hair on the head becomes sparse, the more this comes out. In his movements, he can’t sit still, and can’t quiet down, and he scopes out affairs for the best. (There can be) kidney and liver disease, sciatica, pain in the thighs, rheumatism, and spleen and stomach complaints.

☵ 坎(kǎn)坎为水卦像
坎卦为二坎相重,阳陷阴中,险陷之意,险上加险,重重险难,天险,地险。险阳失道,渊深不测,水道弯曲,人生历程曲折坎坷。绝顶聪明,“心诚行有功”。比和卦,谋事顺畅可成,但内中有波折。肾,泌尿系统疾病,血病,妇科病,视力差,心脏病。

Kǎn gua (☵ 坎) is Water, N.

Kǎn gua is (literally) the pits, yang sunken into the midst of yin, meaning to be sunken in dangers, seriously threatened by dangers and difficulties, at risk from heaven, at risk from earth. There is the danger of losing the yang path, of unfathomable profundity, and of the devious and twisted water path, such that the life path becomes winding and bumpy. Nevertheless there is high intelligence, “earnest sincerity has its effect.” With respect to gua, although a certain affair may be smooth and unhindered, there are still twists and turns in the midst of it. There can be ailments of the kidney and urinary tract, leukemia, gynecological problems, vision deficits, and heart disease.

☲ 离(lí)离为火卦像
离卦离明两重,光明绚丽,火性炎上,依附团结。离散,离开,分离。凡八纯卦互为依托帮助,但又具同性相斥之性。虽比和,但内有冲突,谋事可成,却有周折,目疾,心脏疾病,高血压,肺虚症。

Lí gua (☲ 离) is Fire, S.

Lí gua has two different kinds of brightness, gorgeous light and also burning like fire, both bound up together. It scatters, breaks apart, and divides. In general the bagua mutually help each other, but at the same time they also have the capacity to be mutually repelling. And so although comparatively together, internally there are conflicts, and when a certain affair can be accomplished, there are vicissitudes, eye disease, heart disease, high blood pressure, and lung deficiency syndrome.

☶艮(gèn)艮为山卦像
艮卦山外有山,山相连。不动,静止,停止,克制,沉稳、稳定,止其所欲,重担。两桌、两床相连,上下铺位,床上、桌下。测外出,不能出行,行人不归。癌症,青春痘,痧菲子,肿瘤,疮块,脾胃病,肾病,结石症。

Gèn gua (☶ 艮) is Mountain, Earth Element, NE.

Gèn gua besides the meaning of mountain, also means mountain range. It is immovable, still, stopped, restrained, steady, and stable. He ends his desires, and bears great responsibility. He is like two beds and two tables joined together, in two levels above and below. So one can’t get out, and those who go out can’t return. There can be cancer, acne, prickly heat from cholera, turmors, ulcers, and stomach and spleen problems, kidney disease, and pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis.

☱兑(duì)兑为泽卦像
兑卦喜悦可见,快乐照临人,口若悬河,善言喜说,高兴,沼泽地,洞穴,废穴,败壁破宅,坑洼地,纵横沟渠。测事如意悦心。口疾,气管疾病,肺疾,麻脸,肝胆疾症,股疼,血光灾,作手术。

Duì gua (☱ 兑) is Lake, Metal Element, W.

Duì gua is clearly joyous, and her happiness illumines those nearby, she has the gift of the gab, and takes delight in uttering auspicious words, and is happy in criss-crossed channels between marshes, caves, abandoned caves, broken down walls and huts, and bumpy terrain. In judging affairs she is happy and at ease. There can be diseases of the mouth and trachea, lung disease, a pock-marked face, disease of the liver and gall bladder, pain in the thighs, leukemia, and the experience of surgery.

From a Buddhist perspective, it’s a matter of consciousness. Once having understood this system, the amount of effort it takes to apply it is trivial compared to the effort of blind persistence against mysterious opposition, or outright failure. But you won’t know that until you try applying it, that is, you will be unconscious and therefore deficient in your Buddhist practice of mindfulness unless you at least give it a try to see if it works. And maybe it doesn’t work for you, and that’s fine too. Personally, I find that it works quite well.

For those with Chinese language, here is a wallpaper I made several years ago which details all the basic archetypal components of traditional Feng Shui, with an updated flying star chart for the current Sheep year:
