Hi CoCreate Heath,
Yes, the element of the direction has a small influence on the Energy Combinations present in each palace/section of the 9-section grid. However, the direction’s element would not be strong enough to act as a remedy for the Energy Combo present in the building.
You have a typo in your remarks…
NW – NorthWEST is the 6/yang Metal direction.
NE – NorthEAST is the 8/yang Earth direction.
Once you take the AFSI Advanced class, you’ll be taught to calculate the more powerful energies according to the year built & the 15-degree Sitting direction of the house.
Delighted that you found Chris’ answer to your question.
Good Job in searching previous posts.
1st STEP: Neutralize the 5, 2, 3, 7 energies.
2nd STEP: Cancel Dominations in remaining Palaces/section.
3rd STEP: Add enhancements to remaining Palaces/section.
Do NOT remedy bathrooms, unless they have a door to the outside.
5,9 and 2,5 and the Annual 5 ALWAYS require Heavy (twice as much) or Moving Metal to neutralize them.
Also, avoid any actual Fire or Fire Colors in the entire Palace/section, b/c that Fire influence would melt away the Metal remedy and render it useless.
2,5 needs to be Neutralized with Heavy (twice as much) or Moving Metal. The energies would be neutralized, but they will NOT become supportive.
Yes, it would be better to rent a different unit.
At the intermediate level, you would factor in the Element of the Palace/Direction to some extent but it would be a minor / weaker influence.
Using your EXAMPLE: With 5h/Earth with 6a/Metal in West 7/Metal (which last happened in 2014), you would use Metal to reduce the 5/earth with some Water Colors to take the edge off the 6/Metal in a Metal Trigram direction.
Nothing in the Universe is 100% good or bad. There is often a little of both.
Everything hinges on each TRIGRAM’s associations & symbology. The basics associations are taught in the AFSI Beginning Class pages 29-36 & the symbologies are taught in AFSI Intermediate Class on page 36. This information can also be found in Principles of Feng Shui pages 35-42 & page 161.
6/Qian relates to the HEAD, therefore headaches & even migraine headaches can occur when 6/Yang Earth is present, especially when it is dominated by 9/Fire or actual Fire / Fire Colors. You can add to those symbologies by studying what happens in a combination to find subtleties like 6/Qian can also bring loneliness with its power (“lonely at the top”).
Once the 2/Earth is neutralized with Metal to avoid health problems, it also reduces the Prosperity of the 8/Earth, but protecting Health is always most important.
You can think of these as annoying side-effects.
I would grid this enclosed GLASS ROOM separately from the whole house, since it is an addition to enclose the pool area and does not affect the rest of the home.
IF it were only a screened-in area, it would not have a Feng Shui energy blueprint.
Yes, both the House Trigram & Annual #/energies are floated ascending from Center to NW, WEST, NE, SOUTH, NORTH, SW, EAST, SE (which is opposite NW).
The #/energy at SE will always be 1 less than the #/energy at NW when floating ascending.
Also, ONLY the HOUSE 5/earth will always occupy the middle FACING palace/section.
This Compass Overlay (transparency) doesn’t seem to be EXACT positioned so that its center is over the exact center of the 9-section Whole House Grid… in this image.
NOTE: The first 2 of the 15-degree direction below are also triggered by the House Sitting 15-degree direction.
E 15-degrees for your Son is his Prosperous & also his LONELY Pillow, so if he just wants to make money & doesn’t care about having a blossoming relationship… then a door there would be good for him. He also would not want his headboard going toward E, even though it is part of one of his 2nd best / DUI Trigram’s sleeping direction of NE.
M 15-degrees (middle of South) is your Son’s CONSUMING direction, so any outside opening door or window in that direction will drain away his money when open to air currents coming or going.
Q 15-degrees is your Son’s Backstabber DOOR location, so if he doesn’t want to be bothered by those types of people… he wouldn’t want a door in Q.
All of the Personal Directions radiate out from the Magnetic center of the whole house grid. So, you can make a transparency of page 17 from the on-line Advanced Class materials… lined up to the actual position of ZERO North to see where the OUTSIDE doors and windows are located.
Bedroom doors will be influences by their location from the Magnetic center of the whole house grid… as well as 4 of the 15-degree Personal Directions are measured from the Magnetic center of that room / suite. They are your Injury, Marriage, Romance and Lonely Pillow directions that I write about at… http://www.fengshuidirections.com/
Any combination (2,3 or 3,7) will contributes to Gossip, Arguments and Lawsuits b/c of the nature of 3/wood.
6,8 is better for Money, b/c 8/earth/wealth is productive to 6/metal/owner.
1,8 is also good for Prosperity, if you add a Double Remedy of Wood (Plants) and Fire Colors to cancel the Domination and bridge the gap to make the 8/earth/wealth on the receiving end of the remedy.
1/wood; Wood/Plant + Fire Colors; 8/earth
The only other possible Double Remedies are:
Red Earth (Fire Colors + Earthen objects)
Metal + Water (Metal object + Water/fountain or colors)
Your Personal TRIGRAM is Li, which is the Fire Trigram and is represented by the # 9.
Our Personal TRIGRAM # is never floated inside the house, as the house has its own TRIGRAM according to it’s Sitting Side.
If your Condo’s living room windows are Facing the East, then your Condo is Sitting WEST, which makes it a DUI Trigram condo that is represented by the # 7.
7 is the number you would Float for the House Trigram.
You would also Float the Annual # for 2016, which is 2 (use the male formula to determine the Annual Energies #).
No one has a Personal Annual #
NOTE to all NEW Students:
It is best to start a new topic than to piggy-back an unrelated question on an old post.
To start a new topic scroll to the bottom of the list of post in any forum.
Example: For this class use this link https://www.amfengshui.com/Forums/forum/feng-shui-on-line-classes/fs102-intermediate-feng-shui-class/ and then scroll to the bottom to start your own post.
The House ‘D’ letter/direction will always be at the Sitting, b/c the House Trigram East/West letter/directions are based on the House Sitting. See page 67-68 of the Beginning Class materials.
Use the diagrams on the Beginning class on pages 54-55 to find the House Trigram letters/directions… just as you would for an individual’s Personal Trigram.
