24 Mountains Feng Shui

24 Mountains Feng Shui

24 mountains feng shuiOne of the most crucial methods in compass school Feng Shui is the 24 mountain formula – this is a very precise method of Feng Shui where you make use of the 24 compass sub directions when determining the sitting and facing direction of your home and will also allow you to determine a great deal for your home or office. The sub directions of the 24 mountains are seen in a Chinese Luo Pan Compass and are displayed in one of the rings around the central compass; each sub direction is divided in to a 15 degree segment and all of the segments add up to 360 degrees hence why we have 24 mountains.

The sub directions of the 360 degrees are the basis of Eight mansions and Flying Star; they are also the basis of the Water Dragon formulas. Nowadays, the 24 mountain less calculation and time spent working everything out as you can buy layover charts for property floor plans and in our Academy of Feng Shui Software, the formula is all built in to the software and everything is worked out instantly which makes life a lot easier than when a Feng Shui Master would have to use a Luo Pan to calculate this.

We sell a good quality compass that is highly accurate and fully calibrated with thousands of pounds worth of compasses to give you 100% accurate readings but you can also pick a compass up at a local camping store.

The reason that a good quality compass is so important is because the compass direction helps determine the buildings facing directions.

A lot of old books will refer to the 24 mountains by their specific name which can get very confusing if you are trying to remember names like Ren, Ding, Wu etc. You may notice that the names of the 24 mountains are also the names of trigrams, earthly branches and heavenly stems.

Below is a reference chart that you can save and print for when you are applying the 24 mountains in Feng Shui.
