# Feng Shui/Setting Up A Geomantic Chart/Mountain Stars

The Mountain Stars refer to the "Sitting Direction" of a house or building. Mountain Stars are filled into the Geomantic Chart in the following order:

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: The first Palace to be filled in is [Row 2, Column 2], followed by [Row 3, Column 3], ... , and finally [Row 1, Column 1].

## Yang Direction

For movement in 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

The following table depicts the above Yang movement in the classical format, where "E" represents the Earth Base:

 8E 4E 6E 7E 9E 2E 3E 5E 1E

## Yin Direction

For movement in 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

The following table depicts the above Yin movement in the classical format, where "E" represents the Earth Base:

 2E 6E 4E 3E 1E 8E 7E 5E 9E
