Within the application of formulas, the most basic but powerful recommendations to be successful deal with the BaGua that literally translates eight trigrams. Each trigram is symbolized by three parallel broken or solid lines and each trigram represents an element, a number, a family member, a color and much more.
When using the BaGua we superimpose a 3×3 grid on the property based on its orientation, so we divide it into 8 equally sized sectors and the center. Each sector houses a trigram and according to Chinese metaphysics, the mother of feng shui, the eight trigrams represent everything that exists so one trigram also represents you.
To find out your trigram look for your Life Star or Gua number at www.vivianaestrada.com clicking on the BaZi Calculator page. It comes out under your name, on the top right side of the page when you plot your BaZi chart.
To superimpose the BaGua on the property, divide the floor plan into nine boxes and measure its orientation with a compass: go to the center of the property, hold the compass in your hands pointing towards any direction and stay still until the compass stops moving. Mark that direction on the corresponding box and then label the other boxes accordingly.
The box, or better said the sector, that houses your trigram is your life palace and it governs your capacity of achievements.
If the property doesn’t have your sector or the sector is afflicted by negative features like a column in the middle or a staircase or a storage room or a bathroom, then the property doesn’t promote your wealth capacity. But don’t panic, there are additional ways to succeed.
If the sector exists and additionally it is an active place, used by you and/or your family members or employees like a meeting room or the main door, your capacity increases.
Opposite to your life palace is your opportunity palace. For instance, if your life star is number 4, your life palace is Southeast and your opportunity palace is Northwest. All life stars have an opportunity palace except number 5.
The life palace talks about your capacity as an individual, how much you can do by yourself. The opportunity palace tells you what comes to you along the way, like people, business deals, investment opportunities, to name some. Maybe your life palace doesn’t exist or it is afflicted but your opportunity palace is very good so you can still do good because powerful people, good opportunities, profitable deals, and so on are always coming your way.
Generally speaking when we talk about a business we own the business so we work for ourselves or we work for others that own the business or we partner with others to jointly own the business or at least to jointly get things done so the third sector that needs to be assessed in a property is the partnership palace.
