The West House
The main door faces West and is regarded as the orientation of the house as a whole. The house is `divided' into eight sectors.
Each sector has a good or bad location.
Learn why Geomancy.Net adopts the Flow of Qi as the Frontage/Main Door Facing:-
2. Once a while we were asked why our resource on this link is different from some other websites.
3. Just because one happen to visit one or more sites and they differ from our view-point, does not automatically make theirs absolutely correct and ours wrong.
4. In Feng Shui and many other fields, there can be differences in opinions. More importantly, it is best to understand the rationale for the differences.
5. So why does Geomancy.net not simply follow others?
6. The TWO main reasons are:-
a. Two kinds of Feng Shui exists: Yang (for the living) and Yin (for the dead).
b. The application of Flow of Qi.
GENERAL YIN (FOR THE DEAD) FENG SHUI CONCEPT
7. For the dead, they are no longer living. Thus one way of looking at it is that they no longer breathe nor have function for their eyes, ears etc...
8. In Yin Feng Shui, good qi is preferred at the Sitting position vs the Facing direction.
8.1. In the example, below: under Yin Feng Shui; A traditional grave-site has a Horse-shoe design.
8.2. This Horse-shoe design acts as a protection to both protect and ward of the Bad Qi. For a deceased, they are buried horizontally. And in this instance, the horse-shoe offers protection from "Head to Toe". What better way to protect the dead than to place the person with the head first,
8.3. Thus for Yin Feng Shui, this is where you want to have lots of good Qi behind you so as to ward of the Bad Qi.
9. Most chart today, is replicated from this Yin Feng Shui concept.
10. We have thus opted for the more important Qi Flow direction.
10.1 Here, good for good Qi to flow towards our face:-
10.2 For the dead, they would otherwise be lying on the ground horizontally with their head at the tip of "Horse-shoe" and their legs facing the Frontage of the grave site. Do you see the difference, here?
11. This is the rationale why Geomancy.net adopted the above layout to better reflect Yang Feng Shui concepts.
12. Thus, our charting is no accident nor a mistake.
12.1 As shown by this example of a Qian (Ch'ien) House:-

13. In real-life, we cannot just follow blindly. This is why it is good to have differences of opinion.
14. And what makes one think that just because everyone else does the same, and if someone else does it differently, they must be incorrect.
14.1 Here for all you know, it could instead be like "The rose amongst the thorns" LOL!
