Feng Shui Rule Uncovered: Differentiating
Between Missing Corners and Projections

In Feng Shui, the most ideal type of house
or lot shape is a "regular" square or rectangle,
which provides energy balance, equilibrium and harmony.
Unfortunately, modern architecture most of the time does
not consider regular shape to compromise its design. This
may result in projection and missing corner in a house or
lot, which undeniably affects one's feng shui.
Many feng shui masters or practitioners
tend to ignore a projection and missing corner during a
feng shui audit, either because they are uncertain about
the accurate rules surrounding it or they are confused between
the two. This article helps to hilight this fact that needs
to be considered in identifying the feng shui of a house
and to clarify the difference between the two.
A projection is defined as an extended space of an area.
The area here is referring to one or more of the 8 sectors
of a flying star natal chart or a bagua chart which you
superimpose on your house plan. If the chi (energy) in this
expanded space is positive and ideal, it will be amplified
further to provide positive influence to your life. For
example, if there are good flying star such as #8 in the
specific area, it will be amplified further to give the
family riches. Or if ones "sheng chi" direction
is in the projection, he or she will benefit greatly from
it even more. But if the chi (energy) is negative and bad,
it will be amplified further to provide negative influence
to your life. For example if there is an illness star#2
in the projected area, it will cause more severe illness
to the occupants living in that house. The chi (energy)
in a certain area is determined by the 1. natal flying star
combination, 2. the annual afflictions and 3. whether the
direction matches one's personal kua number or not. The
effects above will apply for Classical Feng Shui believers
practising 8 Mansions Theory and Flying Stars Feng Shui.
For those who practise Bagua 8 Aspirations and Black Sect
Hat Tantric Feng Shui, the effects of a projection will
always be positive, because it will amplify one of the aspirations
in their life, enriching an aspiration in specific. For
example, if the projection is in the SE wealth corner, then
the occupants of that house will enjoy tremendous wealth
luck compared to the other aspirations.
A missing corner on the other hand is a proportion of an
area dissappearing or shrunk. The area here is also referring
to one or more of the 8 sectors of a flying star natal chart
or a bagua chart which you superimpose on your house plan.
A missing corner is not necessarily bad though, depending
on how you look at it. Again, it depends on the chi (energy)
in this missing space, whether it is positive or negative.
Again the chi (energy) in a certain area is determined by
the 1. natal flying star combination, 2. the annual afflictions
and 3. whether the direction matches one's personal kua
number or not. If the chi (energy) is positive, then it
will go to waste because the corner is missing. For example
if wealth star #8 goes into this missing corner, then it
simply means that the occupants will not be able to benefit
from it. Also if someone's "sheng chi" direction
falls into this corner, then it will go to waste because
he will not be able to optimize this location. However,
if there is bad chi such as combinations of 2-3 and 2-5
or chueh ming in the missing corner, it will benefit you
greatly because you will not be influenced by them then.
For those who practise Bagua 8 Aspirations Theory and Black
Sect Tantric Feng Shui, the effects of a missing corner
will always be negative, because it will cause an aspiration
in their life to go missing. For example, if the missing
corner is in the NE literary corner, then the occupants
of that house will not achieve scholastic capability.
Before we can determine a projection or a missing corner,
it is very important to obtain an architect drawing or a
scatch that is accurately drawn to scale. Then start applying
the "half rule" and the "one-third rule"
as detailed below.
The "half rule" as shown in
the diagram above indicates the following:
1. If the projected part is less than half of the entire length
of its side, it is called a PROJECTION.
2. If the projected part is more than half of the entire length
of its side, it is called a MISSING CORNER.
The "one-third rule" as shown
in the diagram above indicates the following:
1. If the missing part is more than "one third"
of the entire length of its side, it is called a PROJECTION.
That means you have two projections.
2. If the missing part is less than "one third"
of the entire length of its side, it is called a MISSING AREA.
Curing missing corners is not so easy,
because as a matter of fact there is no space to contain the
chi distribution in the affected of the house. Some feng shui
masters would ensure that the internal corners of missing
areas be cured with the faceted crystal balls as shown in
the diagram above.
