Astrology has always been a part of the Fengshui process because it's naturally related to detecting what you can't see on the surface buts there underneath. The practice of building astrology is the practice of feeling the pulse of a building.
In a Feng Shui Consultation there are three different types of Astrology that can be used (depending on the circumstance):
- The astrology of the building to detect the unseen influences (according to when it was built and how it is aligned on the land).
- The Feng Shui Astrology of the People (also called their Ming Kua), for instance, how to set them up into their powerful productive positions? What are their lucky directions? Do they suit some parts of the building and not others? How can this be arranged to suit and harmonise with their personal energy?
- The Chinese astrology of the people. This is generally a genuine reading of authentic astrology to determine what's going on in their lives (see diagram).
In Asia it is quite common for Feng Shui Masters to look into the Chinese Astrology of their clients to see how lucky their clients are. For instance, are they attracting lucky or unlucky times? What type of energy will the luck have? Can they take advantage of it? Which are the patterns hold them back from success? Which patterns create more success for them?
Chinese Astrology is imperative in a consultation when:
a) A Client is experiencing Bad Luck..
b) We need to Problem Solve the differences between the influences in the building vs the influences on the person.
c) When a client is experiencing 'transitions' and is unsure of the future.
d) When a building has very bad Feng Shui the normal course of action is for the consultant to check the Chinese Astrology of their client to know whether their client is going to be alright in this building.
The exception to this is when the Feng Shui is so bad - that it doesn't matter anymore and the consultant feels its best for them to move one because sooner or later the bad Feng Shui may affect them! (Normally when this occurs a client is already experiencing it - full on! - so they are often relieved to discover it's not in their imagination).
