In feng shui, there are a few remedies we can apply to improve the scholar luck for our children, namely placing the study desk and bed facing their “scholar luck” directions and placing a green jade pagoda at the scholar luck’s sector in their rooms. I will explain below how to calculate the “scholar luck” location for our children:
- First of all, using the Chinese 4 Pillars or BaZi calculator (where you can find in my blog site http://netgent1-creativelife.blogspot.ca/) to determine the Heavenly Stems of the children’s day of birth (the result which shown on the top on the Day column in the calculator in my blog site) and then look up the “scholar luck” sector from the following tables:
Heaven Stems “scholar luck” direction/sector
Jia 甲 SE (142.5 – 157.5 degree)
Yi 乙 South (172.5 – 187.5 degree)
Bing 丙 SW (232.5 – 247.5 degree)
Ding 丁 West (262.5 – 277.5 degree)
Wu 戊 SW (232.5 – 247.5 degree)
Ji 己 West (262.5 – 277.5 degree)
Geng 庚 NW (322.5 – 337.5 degree)
Xin 辛 North (352.5 – 7.5 degree)
Ren 壬 NE (52.5 – 67.5 degree)
Gui 癸 East (82.5 – 97.5 degree)
After finding the "scholar luck" location, by using an auspicious day and time, you can then apply the following:
- arrange the desk or bed facing the “scholar luck” directions.
- place a green jade pagoda (size doesn’t matter) at the “scholar luck” sector of the room, and put a photo of the child (glue a piece of hair at the back of the photo) in front of the pagoda.
Note: the pagoda must be a 9-storey pagoda and must green in color if the reader think the green jade pagoda is too expensive. The above arrangement shall be kept in place as long as the child stay in the room.
The other method we can apply is to place the green jade pagoda at the sector where the annual number 4 wood star is located which can be look up in many web sites.
If you are following the Xuan Kong Flying Star sector, you can place 4 lucky bamboo stems at the sector where the annual number 1 water star is located as this will enhance the [1, 4] combination which will bring scholar luck; and a cup of water where the annual number 4 wood star is located to enhance the annual number 4 wood star.
