The Facing Stars refer to the "Facing Direction" of a house or building. The Facing Direction is frequently (but not always) determined by one's position when standing at the main door and looking out of the house. Facing Stars are filled into the Geomantic Chart in the following sequence:

  1. [Row 2, Column 2]
  2. [Row 3, Column 3]
  3. [Row 2, Column 3]
  4. [Row 3, Column 1]
  5. [Row 1, Column 2]
  6. [Row 3, Column 2]
  7. [Row 1, Column 3]
  8. [Row 2, Column 1]
  9. [Row 1, Column 1]
[Row 1, Column 1] [Row 1, Column 2] [Row 1, Column 3]
[Row 2, Column 1] [Row 2, Column 2] [Row 2, Column 3]
[Row 3, Column 1] [Row 3, Column 2] [Row 3, Column 3]

Notes:

  1. The first Palace to be filled in is [Row 2, Column 2], followed by [Row 3, Column 3], ... , and finally [Row 1, Column 1].
  2. For the Yang Direction, the numbers will be filled in in increasing order. In other words, if a number is n, then the next number will be n+1, except when n=9. If n=9, then the next number will be 1, followed by 2, 3,... that is:
8 4 6
7 9 2
3 5 1
  • [Row 2, Column 2] = 9
  • [Row 3, Column 3] = 1
  • [Row 2, Column 3] = 2
  • [Row 3, Column 1] = 3
  • [Row 1, Column 2] = 4
  • [Row 3, Column 2] = 5
  • [Row 1, Column 3] = 6
  • [Row 2, Column 1] = 7
  • [Row 1, Column 1] = 8

For the Yin Direction, the numbers will be filled in in decreasing order. In other words, if a number is n, then the next number will be n-1, except when n=1. If n=1, then the next number will be 9, followed by 8, 7,... that is:

2 6 4
3 1 8
7 5 9
  • [Row 2, Column 2] = 1
  • [Row 3, Column 3] = 9
  • [Row 2, Column 3] = 8
  • [Row 3, Column 1] = 7
  • [Row 1, Column 2] = 6
  • [Row 3, Column 2] = 5
  • [Row 1, Column 3] = 4
  • [Row 2, Column 1] = 3
  • [Row 1, Column 1] = 2
