The Bagua map

The Bagua map, used in the 8 Aspirations system, has become the most known as Feng Shui, thanks to the countless books on Feng Shui using this system.

We have all heard about the sector of abundance, work or love. Thus, the major concern in how to apply Feng Shui is summarized namely how to “fix” these sectors of the house to improve your economy, your job or your relationships.

The 8 Aspirations system, which uses the “Bagua map” and tells us what aspect of life corresponds to what direction, is just one infinite part of Feng Shui. I have had many students and clients with notions of Feng Shui, precisely the 8 Aspirations system, who did not understand why, having arranged their house using the Bagua map, saw no improvement in certain areas of their lives. They commented that they had everything arranged and that although some had noticed some positive change, in other aspects it was not better and for some even worse.

The 8 Aspirations system is valid, but very minimally that, if we do not consider the 8 Mansions (Ba Zhai) system and the Flying Stars (Xuan Kong) system, we will not see any difference when implementing or even a negative result.


When we use the Bagua map of the 8 Aspirations, we consider only the elements relating to the directions. But beyond this, we do not know the Flying Stars from every sector of our house. If these Stars are in harmony with the element of the sector where they are located, then our lives will improve in some aspect, but if they are in disharmony, it can be worse. If we have a combination in a sector which requires the metal element and it turns out that this sector is the South and we have the fire element, we get quite the opposite of what we wanted.

Another problem is whether we consider our favorable directions or not. Sleeping in one of our unfavorable directions will have a negative impact on our lives, depending on which unfavorable direction it is.

We must be very objective when it comes to analyzing the results. We must observe and draw our own conclusions. We live our lives according to our experience. If something has gone well, then we will do the same. It is the same for Feng Shui. If it goes well, everything is perfect, but if not, then something is wrong. We need to take everything into account, not just one part.
