8 Houses School & Application
8th Houses school is in accordance to Late Heaven Ba Gua giving rise to 8 different directions. Residences are divided into East/West four houses.
East Four houses are: Li, Zhen, Sun & Kan.
West Four houses are: Qian, Tui, Kun, Gen
Life Gua is also divided into East/West Four Life. Theoretically Life Gua should match House Gua for perfection:
1. Taking readings for East/West Four Houses
Taking measurement with Lo Pan parallel to main door. Direction on towards the house is the sitting while direction outside main door facing.
2. To calculate East/West Four Life
Use 100 to take away last 2 digits from birth year and divide by 9. The remainder gives Life Gua.
e.g. Born in 1978, male(100-78)/9 = Remainder is 4, East Four Life
Use last 2 digits from birth year and minus 4 and divide by 9. The remainder give Life Gua
e.g. Born in 1978, female(78-4)/9 = Remainder is 2, West Four Life
c) East/West Four Life Gua
Below is listed life Gua for both male/female, when remainder is 0, take Gua to be 9, if remainder is 5, West Four Life, with male classified under Kun Gua and female Ken Gua.
