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:
- [Row 2, Column 2]
- [Row 3, Column 3]
- [Row 2, Column 3]
- [Row 3, Column 1]
- [Row 1, Column 2]
- [Row 3, Column 2]
- [Row 1, Column 3]
- [Row 2, Column 1]
- [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[edit]
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:
^{8}E | ^{4}E | ^{6}E |
^{7}E | ^{9}E | ^{2}E |
^{3}E | ^{5}E | ^{1}E |
Yin Direction[edit]
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:
^{2}E | ^{6}E | ^{4}E |
^{3}E | ^{1}E | ^{8}E |
^{7}E | ^{5}E | ^{9}E |
