  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[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:

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

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:

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