How to Measure Your Feng Shui Home Directions With A Compass?
I often get asked on how to get the Feng Shui Home Directions measurement right; To be exact, how to map out the 9 square quadrants with your floor plan so you can use the 9
Flying Stars placements.
It’s actually not that difficult~ Let me help you break it down into 7 simple steps:
Get a Plastic Clear File, or any transparent sheet.
Use a marker and draw a 9-square grid, like this:
Take this clear file, together with a compass, and stand in the CENTRE of your house.
Facing TOWARDS your front door or main entrance. Hold your COMPASS and determine which direction the door is to you, like this:
For example, the door is at your North, then you have a North-facing house.
So after you know the direction your front door or main entrance, map out the rest of the directions onto the clear file.
Insert your floor plan underneath the clear file, and you’ll know exactly which quadrant does a particular room falls into!

You can continue mapping out the annual 9 flying stars i.e. the prosperity star, the illness star etc onto the clear file as guided on Day 4. You can use post-
its and stick onto it if you want to use the clear file like, forever
This method is especially convenient if you are about to move to a new home, have a renovation project in mind, have home space and office space, or you want to help your friends check their Feng Shui too!
If you want to double check on the accuracy of the direction, doing this again at around 7-8 am and check if the room marked as in the East is after the sunrise happens. So here you go! With this simple tool, you can get flexible without drawing a floor plan all over again.
Let’s say you are planning a re-arrangement of some furniture but not sure if this is good in Feng Shui sense? No problem, get a paper and draw a floor plan and insert here to see the directions.
I hope this is clear enough and easy to implement now! Happy mapping!
