Period One[edit]

In traditional Feng Shui, the Period is normally depicted as a circle in order for it to be used to construct the Nine Palaces Chart. As given below, the circle for Period 1 has been transposed into tabular form which can just as easily be used to construct the required charts for use in Feng Shui.

The first and last columns in the table below are called "Outer Ring" because they are seen in the outermost ring of a Feng Shui circular chart. In tabular format, there are two columns for "Outer Ring", although in a circular format it is actually only one ring. This is because the first column represents what we see on one side of the circle, whilst the last column represents what is diagonally opposite on the other side of the circle.

The "Inner Ring" represents the second ring from the outermost ring. Again, although it is shown as two columns, the Inner Ring consists of only one continuous ring in circular format. For example, if we trace the diameter of the chart in circular format, for row 1 item 1, we will start from Jia under 3-Jade in the Outer Ring, to Geng under 7-Red in the Inner Ring, to P1 (the center of the circle), and then across the other side of the circle, to Jia under 3-Jade of the Inner Ring, and finally to Chou under 8-White of the Outer Ring.

The "Center" column gives the Period number. In this instance, P1 represents Period One.

Synonyms[edit]

The term "Period" is also known as the "Age", and the term "Mountain Direction" is also known as the "Sitting Direction".

Grid Direction[edit]

The directions of the grids in each Flying Star Chart are as follows:

South-
East
SOUTH
(pointing
Direction)
South-
West
EAST
(Direction)
Centre
(of a
property)
WEST
(Direction)
North-
East
NORTH
(pointing
Direction)
North-
West

For example, for Direction W1-E1 in Period 1, the stars in the West direction are 536. This means that a room in the West of the house/property has the stars 536. Similarly, a room in the South of the same property has the stars 754.

In every Flying Star Chart on this page (and in this book), the South is always on top, and the North is always at the bottom of a grid. In Chinese, a compass is known as a "South Pointing Needle". As a matter of perspective, this may help explain why a Nine-Palace Chart is always drawn with the South direction on top. A typical way to use a Nine-Palace Chart (aka Flying Star Chart) is to align the South direction and superimpose it onto the architectural plan of a house or property.
