Which School of Feng Shui should you use?

“There is a muscular energy in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind”.

 Annie Dillard

There are 3 basic schools of Feng Shui:  Form School, Compass School and Black Hat Feng Shui.  Form school is the original and most accurate.

Form School

 Feng Shui developed thousands of years ago in little villages of the Orient.  It was called Folk Feng Shui because each village had there own guidelines on how to use it.  Their livelihoods were dependent on it.  They studied the formations of the land and ways of the wind & water (Feng Shui translated means the way of Wind & Water) to determine the best sitting for their survival.  Over time Feng Shui developed and was used by emperors to ensure their success. 

The original Feng Shui Masters were hired by emperors to wage war. It is said that they had the power to manipulate the wind, water and fog to help the outcome of battles. Folk Lore has it that the Emperor was fearful that they would use their skills against him, so he ordered the Feng Shui Masters put to death.

Many of the Feng Shui Masters went into hiding in the Buddhist Monasteries in fear for their lives.  Many Monks were trained in the ways of Feng Shui.  This is why today there is a Black Hat School of Feng Shui today. 

This is the origin of Feng Shui and what is called Form School Feng Shui.  It addresses the energies of the roads, rivers, mountains and placement of structures in relationship to them.  It premises are based upon Mother Nature not man (as you will see in the Compass School description).   Please read the article “Everything is Energy” on this site for more detailed information on this School.

Typically you will find that Form School is utilized with either Black Hat School or Compass school but not both.

The Black Hat School Ba-Gua - Why the Ba-gua works

The Black Hat school of Feng Shui uses what is called the Ba-Gua.  When you occupy a structure it is important to create and set the electromagnetic field for that structure that you desire. 

The Later Heaven Pa-k’ua, which was based upon compass directions, has been transformed into the Ba-Gua, the eight sided symbol that represents the eight stations of life, which is based upon the location of the entrance to your structure (not a compass).   The Ba-Gua is activated by the group mind.

To understand the group mind I will tell a story that I have heard many times.  It is called the 100th Monkey Syndrome. 

There were several small, uninhabited islands.  Monkeys were the only creatures living on these islands.  There was no accessibility between islands.  They monkeys survived by digging for roots for food.  

A group of scientists came to one of the islands to do research.  One of the scientists befriended one of the monkeys and taught the monkey  to take the roots to the ocean and wash them before eating them. 

The group of scientists finished their work and returned home. Back on the island the one lone monkey taught all of the monkeys on that island  how to wash their roots before eating. 

When the scientists returned months later, they found that on all of the other islands all of the monkeys were washing their roots before eating.

 It is said that, once a thought form is accepted by 100 people, that thought form becomes part of the psychic web and becomes common knowledge or the group mind.  This group mind is very powerful because it is accepted and believed in by the masses.

Compass School - Using a Lo Pan (Compass) to read your Fortune

“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the  huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the  vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

                  Saint Augustine

When you read about any specific compass direction i.e.; northeast, southwest, you are reading about Compass School Feng Shui and the Lo Pan.  This schools is based upon thousands of years of data and is a man made system.

The history of the Lo Pan compass takes us back to the Chou dynasty (770-476 BCE), when emperor Shing combined the knowledge of the compass with that of the I-ching.  The Compass consists of a magnetic needle that point towards magnetic north not true north.  The foundation of the I-ching is in the trigrams.

The trigrams are the set of three broken and/or solid lines that you typically find around a Chinese mirror.

In Traditional Compass school these trigrams “determine the divination of fortune” as Evelyn Lip as written.  The traditional Lo Pan has 36 rings of information.  These trigrams occupy the first circle of the luopan.  How these rings line up with the compass and the combination of the reading of these rings determines your fortune. 

The Inaccuracy of reading degrees on the Compass

“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”
Benjamin Franklin

Earth has an electromagnetic field.  Our solar sun also has an electromagnetic field.  Our solar sun goes thru 11year cycles of solar fluctuations called sun flares that create solar wind.   In 2003 two of the strongest flares ever recorded flashed.  National Geographic says that we are in the height of the sunspot cycle.

  The fluctuations from our solar sun have a major impact on the planet earth. This solar wind creates a vibration that disturbs the electromagnetic field of the earth.  The greater the intensity of the solar fluctuations and the amount of fluctuations will determine the amount of disturbances of the earth’s electromagnetic field.  

The history of these solar fluctuations can be found in the earth’s tectonic plates.  It is believed that at one time all of the continents of the earth were connected.  It is also believed that the effects from on solar system and galaxy have caused the shift to the separate continents.

The Earth’s electromagnetic field is created by a solid iron inner core and a molten outer core.  These two cores move in opposite directions.  It is this movement of the cores that creates the energy that moves in the magnet pole that creates the earth’s magnetic field and magnetic north. 

Magnetic North and True North (the Earth’s axis) although thought to be one in the same, are not.  Magnet North moves an average of 40 kilometers every year. In the last 100 years Magnetic North has moved approximately 1200 kilometers.

This difference between Magnet North and the True North is called Magnetic Declination.  Magnetic North is also thought to be a specific point on the planet, but is not.  It is an average point that travels in an elliptical shape that can vary as much as 160 kilometers at any given time.

“Magnetic North is always in constant movement”

 Larry Newitt,
 Geological Survey of Canada.

When the vibration from the solar wind hits the earth, it disturbs the electromagnetic field of the earth, which vibrates the magnetic pole, moving magnetic north in this elliptical shape.   The greater the intensity and amount of solar wind will determine the elliptical movement of Magnetic North.

If you are determining placement of furniture based upon magnetic north, the degrees are not critical, the overall direction is.   However, if you are determining your property or site location based upon Magnetic North your compass reading will not be specifically accurate in reading the actual degrees of the location.

The addition or subtraction of the Magnetic Declination to your compass reading will give you a close reading, however, it will not be accurate degree because magnetic north is in constant movement. 

The Magnetic Declination will depend upon your location.  “Magnetic declination is zero along a line that runs west of Hudson Bay, past the western tip of Lake Superior, to the west of Chicago, through the Gulf of Mexico then down the west side of South America and so.  Another agonic line passes through Scandinavia, central Europe and then into Africa before curving up through Asia.” says Larry Newitt

The rings and reading of the Lo Pan Compass, includes measurements as small as 1 degree.  Two or more of the 36 compass rings are lined up to divine your fortune.  See the picture below.


The constant movement of Magnetic North dilutes the accuracy of reading degrees on a compass.   In today’s solar environment, obtaining an accurate reading of your fortune using degrees of the compass is like telling the earth to stand still.   

This information does not impact interpretations based upon generic directions.

Earlier Heaven and Later Heaven Methodologies of Compass School

 Two of the most used rings of the Lo pan compass are associated with the trigrams. These are the way of the Earlier Heaven and the way of the Later Heaven.  The way of the Earlier Heaven determines the location of “earth energy” and destructive energy and is associated with specific directions on the compass. In the way of the Earlier Heaven, the trigrams are also associated with the compass directions. The way of Later Heaven determines the movement of energy on a property.  In the way of the Later Heaven the trigrams were also associated with the compass directions, however, as Eva Wong has written “with the Nine Palaces, the trigrams are no longer tied to a direction”.  Eva Wong has also written “It is the movement of the trigrams in the Nine Palaces that reveals the cycle of changes, allowing us to observe the changes in the swirl of the universe”.  So the trigrams are still an effective means of divination, they are just no longer tied to the compass direction.

”Candace has an amazing Feng Shui service.  The first thing she noticed at my place was that all the money coming in my front door was going out my back door. So, I put a cure in place and my bank account has since swelled to six figures! Since then, I’ve had many notable successes, including generating nearly a half million dollars in sales in one hour (a personal best). Does this stuff work?  I don’t know but I’m not changing a thing!”

Now mind you it was noon and the phone had not rung and nobody came in all day. As soon as I cleaned my money corner the phone rang and two people drove in to get work done. That made me a believer and I did my house, too. Thanks!”   
--Donald Pulicicchio

“I am 28 and just got married last year. I have a good job and my husband does, too. Both of us are still going to some courses to improve our possibilities. These courses require quite large fees and this winter we had difficulties paying a last fee for my master’s. I have read all your Feng Shui tips and decided to improve the prosperity corner. Meanwhile, my mother who knew what problems we had, did the same thing at her house. In about a week, my father-in-law phoned and said I should drop by because he had something to say.  I went there and he gave me an envelope with all the money I needed, saying he received a bonus bigger than he expected and he was giving me the money. I was very impressed. On the other hand, Mother knew all along it would work out. Thank you… Maybe you are the Feng Shui good luck charm.”
--Despina Stroe

"It was last year I  tried to do some changing to my house because I like to apply the Feng Shui! My friend didn't believe on it, he didn't like the idea that I kept changing everything! But when he won big he finally stopped commenting!  I did the  money cures that he would win big jackpot in bingo as he love to play it!  When he come home I couldn't believe he had $20,000! Thank you !" 
Luzviminda Reynolds

"I can't believe how fast it worked.  Well, did a Feng Shui cure  last night and sleep through the night for the first time in two years. Is this just mind over matter or just a fact about mirrors? I'm totally amazed."

"My telephone set was always in the family area of my home until two days ago when my husband moved it. These days I am looking for a new job.  It was only after I received the call for an interview from a human resource consultant that I realized that the new place of the phone is in the Feng Shui  helpful people location ...Quite interesting wouldn't you say?"

"My husband has smoked cigarettes for 17 years and has had a painful medical condition for about 4 years.  He is not one to see a doctor, so he generally just suffered through his pain and inconvenience.  This had a dramatic impact on our relationship and lives.  I began putting Feng Shui enhancements in our Health area and about two months later he was living relatively pain free.  Now, he didn't recognize it as a Feng Shui cure because he went to the library and got online and did research.  He found that a few lifestyle changes, diet and exercise would "correct" is problem.  So he made the appropriate changes.  I know this was a Feng Shui cure since he was living with the pain for 4 years, but found a solution only months after the enhancements were in place.  With that success, I added more enhancements to the health area of the master bedroom.  About 4 to 6 weeks later he quit smoking.  Again, it wasn't magic, he used an herbal supplement and a lot of willpower, but it is compelling that after 17 years of smoking he decided to quit now that there were Feng Shui cures in our home! "

"I was not happy traveling to a far office for the company I worked for. After reading a Feng Shui cure on your web site, I removed a Feng Shui Ailment.  Less that a week later, I was transferred to an office ten minutes from where I live.  Thank you."

I have decided to resort to Feng Shui. Your tips have improved my finance significantly. I started with clutter clearing. Suddenly new source of income opened and money started flowing in whenever necessary. My family joined me at my work place; I got call for new senior grade job  my health condition improved; altogether happiness returned to my life."

I tried looking for another jobs.. and been to different jobs interviews in multinational companies, but nothing was finalized for whatever reason.  I did the Feng Shui cures you recommended for the front door. The time to negotiate the renewal of my employment contract was coming very soon and for the first time I decided to speak to my boss to explain what I am doing and where I believe I should be.. my meeting went very well .. and within a week I got a huge promotion..
