FENGSHUI PRESENTATION

 

People familiar with Feng Shui would be able to interpret numbers expressed in “nine squares”; the basic one could be expressed as:

South
East

 

South

 

South West

 

4

9

2

 

East

3

5

7

West

 

8

1

6

 

North
East

 

North

 

North West

(It is interesting to note that the sum of numbers added horizontally, vertically or diagonally all add up to 15).

 The diagram could be more meaningfully presented in trigram as: 

South East

South

South West

 

 

 

 

 

 

East

4 [xun]

[li]

2 [kun]

 

 

 

 

 

 

West

3 [zhen]

 

5

7 [dui]

8 [gen]

1 [kan]

6 [qian]

North East

North

North West

This is often seen as the [bagua] diagram

True to the [yijing] principles, the positions of the trigrams are time dependent. An understanding of the sequence of changes forms the basis of [fengshui] and other studies.
