What is a Feng Shui Compass?
Feng Shui compass
valuates the energy of each direction, depending on the landform. The purpose of interpreting these energies is to determine what directions are best suited for human beings.
For instance, think of your home and think about where it is in your home where you feel the most comfortable.
Do you feel more comfortable sitting in the dining room verses the living room?
I enjoy sitting in both my living room and dining room, which I sit facing north or south. According Feng Shui, my best directions are north, east, southeast and south, making me an East Group individual.
Feng Shui Compass - Learning East/West Groups
The Feng Shui Compass is the best tool to have when understanding Feng Shui.
The East/West System involves eight types of magnetic fields of Qi.
"Qi" disperse while riding with the Wind, stall when reaching the edge of Water.

This website will discuss in detail the important role "direction" plays in Feng Shui.
Through the lens of Feng Shui, all of us are born in different years, and therefore, we are assigned with different properties and have directions that are favorable or unfavorable to us.
Those who are born in the same year are classified as male or female.
By using a special formula, an individual based on birth year and gender, is assigned to one of the Eight Trigrams. This Trigram is called a Personal Trigram.
Based on the compass, the eight Personal Trigrams are also classified into both East and West groups.
The four Trigrams are: Kan, Zhen, Xun, and Li, which they belong to the East group; whereas, the rest of the Trigrams -Qian, Kun, Dui, and Gen, belong to the West group.
If the birth year shows that an individual belongs to one of the four Personal Trigrams in the East group, it is called East Group or "East Four Ming".
If the birth year determines that one belongs to a Personal Trigram in the West group, it is also called "West Four Ming".
A house Trigram is decided by the "sitting" direction of a house or building. As with the Personal Trigrams, the Eight House Trigrams are also divided into the same East and West Groups.
Based on the Feng Shui compass a Personal Trigram and House Trigram must match to achieve a state of harmony that will lead you to good fortune and health.
Conversely, a mismatch leads to misfortune, poor health, financial difficulties, accidents, or bad relationships.
To summarize, an East group person living in an East group house or a West group person residing in a West group house is desirable.
However, an East group person in a West group house, or a West group person in an East group house, is disagreeable and not recommended.
