I have just finished a small Fengshui plot evaluation for a client who is planning to buy some land and build a house. Besides the landform etc. analysis I also consulted Qimen as a last step to check my findings. The Qimen chart was spot on and I wanted to share some points of particular interest with you. As I don't yet have solid education in the deeper Fengshui layers of our school, I consulted some Chinese texts to test out their ways. So this is an experimental analysis. By no means is it conclusive or definitive, I just want to share the observations I found interesting with you all.
The basic question was: Is this property good for my client? This is the chart:
The client is in the empty Palace 6. In the past they lived on an extremely bad plot of land with many problems arising, if you're interested I can share this as well, the chart had a Demon Fake and a shocking revelation. So the client had a background of bad experiences with land and wanted to be sure now and start anew.
The land is represented by Simen in Palace 3. P6 overcomes P3, so it is not good for the client. But let us look at this palace a little closer. It contians the negative "Big Structure". In the book "Shipan Qimen Yuce Xue" Qin Ruisheng says the Big Structre indicates clashing Sha Qi from neighbour buildings. Indeed there are some serious edges pointing to this plot and there is even a radio tower above the plot.
Palace 1 contains Dumen and Tianren, resulting in Hexagram 18 which is a big warning sign for us, but what could it mean in this context? After the discussion with my client it became clear: There is a big official confusion and maybe even tendency to make problems in the future on purpose about where the connection to the water supply (and sewage drain) is on this plot of land. No one knows at the moment and this may bring some serious problems in planning on this land, as you can imagine. Palace 1 has Gui on the heaven plate and according to Shi Jianguo in his book Qimen Dunjia Jie Zhen Gui represents the toilet or the sewage drain.
Also according to Shi Jianguo: Jiutan represents the Mingtang: Yes it is indeed in the Southeast
One last note about the potential facing: According to our school, we use the Zhifu on the Dipan to see the Facing. However, the mainstream indicator for the facing according to Chinese Qimen authors is the Zhifu on the Tianpan. So I started to compare these methods in my Fengshui charts and so far, my personal cases match with the latter method: The Zhifu on the Tianpan seems to correlate to the real facing. In this case, if we were to construct a building on this plot the only supporting facings can be to the South or maybe Southeast. Here, Zhifu is in Palace 9, so this matches with reality. Zhifu on the Dipan is in the West, however using the west as facing for a new building this case would be a terrible idea.
Ah you're right about the empty palace, I think. Alex once said, that we cannot control an empty palace, so...Hi Nathalie, thank you for your input
Ah you're right about the empty palace, I think. Alex once said, that we cannot control an empty palace, so the reverse should be true as well? Anyhow, it is as you said, the contents of the Palace are bad anyway. For me a sign of the client's uncertainty and loss of trust due to previous experiences with plots.
Yes the Geng above Gui may also indicate these problems with the water and sewage, right!
Palace 1, well there was nothing like this in the Chinese books, but there is actually clashing Sha Qi in the north and couldn't a Gouchen also represent this? I'll keep it in mind and compare it with future cases. I'll also keep in mind your idea about the Wenwang Gua, thank you.
By heaven you mean the spirit of nine heavens in P4, right? The south east in this case actually opens the land to a nice big Mingtang. The south west with Tianying is where the main road to the plot is.
Yes the axis of the Facing is not that great here, as the chart says. I have been checking this (Zhifu) with a few cases and in 80% the Palace of the Zhifu did indeed match the axis of the real facing and sitting of the place. In the other 20%, neither Zhifu on the Tianpan nor Dipan were correct, however these places had some larger problems anyway, if I remember correctly.
Funny thing in one case: It was a remote consultation over the phone about problems with a house and at the end of the consultation the client was content but still unclear how I could interpret all these things without even having the adress of the place and never seeing it. It was all in the Qimen, of course, and I told her: "Well yeah I know it sounds strange, but I guess I could even tell you the direction of facing of your place. If I'd have to say anything, it should be the south west". She replied: "Erm, yes it IS actually the south west, how did you know?" Haha....Show more3 years ago
Nathalie MourierMy take on a person being void is that they either are not affected by or can't affect the situation. Like your client may desist from buying or be...My take on a person being void is that they either are not affected by or can't affect the situation. Like your client may desist from buying or be denied the possibility to do so for example.
Congrats on the Zhifu remote-reading. I don't normally look at it but will do in the future.
By Heaven I meant Jiutian, right.
About the north palace in this case: I thought it interesting and telling that it hosts both Xin and Gui, and hex 18 that shows something is wrong and needs to be watched or changed. Not sure I was clear about Gouchen in WWBG: Gouchen refers to land when the case is about a house, it also has kind of infamous aspects like prison, something unclear.
