Period Six[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 6 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. The "Center" column gives the Period number. In this instance, P6 represents Period Six.

Synonyms[edit]

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

Grid Directions[edit]

In a Flying Star Chart, the term "NORTH" includes N1, N2 and N3 (North 1, North 2 and North 3), and "SOUTHWEST" includes SW1, SW2 and SW3, etc. Each of the 8 main directions (N, S, E, W, NE, SE, NW, and SW) has 3 sub-divisions, resulting in a total of 24 sectors, and these are known as the "24 Mountains". In plotting a Flying Star Chart, each set of 3 sub-divisions is subsumed under one of the 8 main directions. However, the resultant charts are different for different sectors of the same main direction. For example, it is apparent that the Flying Star Chart of [W1-E1] is different from that of [W2-E2].

The directions of the grids in each Flying Star Chart are found in the above table. For example, for Direction [W1-E1] of the Original Flying Star Chart in Period 6, the stars in the West (direction) are 682. This means that a room in the West of the house/property has the stars 682. Similarly, a room in the South of the same property has the stars 419.

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 magnetic compass is known as a "South Pointing Needle" (指南针). 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 southerly direction and superimpose it onto the architectural plan of a house or property.
