Looking at the interaction between each pair of Stars, and their current qualities etc. allows us to determine the remedy needed; we can use the host and activator, so host would be Sitting, Facing and Annual could be the activator etc.

Classical Chinese Feng Shui heavily relies on the 9 Stars and it basically recognition 81 possible Star combinations. Typically, certain distinct qualities will be allocated to these combinations. When you have been a practitioner already, most of these Star qualities will be known to you, but before we proceed, Lets look at some basic and fundamental considerations that should keep mind before we at all commit the knowledge of these 81 Star combinations to actual practice.

As practitioners of Xuan Kong Fei Xing Pai, commonly referred to as Flying Star Feng Shui or also Qi Distribution School, we practice our ability to Read the Stars.We must however, apply the indications shared here – and even present the combos – with ample reservation, because, as always, lists and tables are only just quantifying Qi and are in no way to be taken rigidly. Analysis the Stars or Reading the Stars are not synonymous.It would be best to share this information.

Before we can decide what a combination may actually portent we need to factor in a vast string of considerations, all simultaneously and this of course takes experience.Star combinations as such may or may not take the Timeliness factor of the Stars into account. You should have a firm understanding of Sheng, Wang, Tui and Siduring different Feng Shui periods before you even attempt apply the subject in actual practice. It should be clear for example, that 5-7 is an inauspicious combination out of Period 7 (1984-2004), because 7 is only auspicious in its own Period. Out of its own Period, 7 is not only untimely but it can be also detrimental (Military Star, generally unfortunate). In its own Period, when Star 7 is Wang (prosperous), Star 7 may be able to handle Star 5. Outside its own Period, Star 7 will become more feeble and perhaps much less able to handle the ill portents of Star 5 and we would need the then Noble Star (e.g. Star 8 in Period 8 which runs from 2004-2024) to handle the situation.
