2023 August Feng Shui

A Feng Shui monthly strategy chart can be used in two ways. This is even more nuanced than a Bazi strategy as Bazi tends to be Day Master specific. In Feng Shui, we can either apply the following directly to your Life Gua (a more straightforward way of predictive analysis), or we could apply this sectors to the person who spends the most time in that particular sector. This one’s for August 2023, based on the Month Replace Month Hexagram Chart.  

In this month’s series, I’ve endeavoured to layer the information with the personal 8 mansions to create an even clearer picture of what’s happening.


The Well hexagram, with Water on top and Wind at the bottom, is a call to dig deep and make ourselves valuable by going the extra mile. After all, Water maybe an inexhaustible yet invaluable resource, but you can only reach the water in the well if your rope is long enough.  

Therefore, with this hexagram comes a need to be more disciplined, structured, and systematic in a certain area of our lives. This is one hexagram where being haphazard and going with the flow is not going to work. Which area? It depends on your Life Gua.  

Huo Hai Sector (Life Gua 1)

In the coming Period 9, there seems to be no longer any excuse for lack of information. Instead, the opposite is likely to happen. Too much information! Daily, all of us swim in a world of information, coming at us nonstop, 24/7.  

But what happens is, we all end up learning bits and bobs about a variety of topics. This social-media induced attention span can deepen the chasm between knowing and understanding.  

Overcoming the knowledge gap through systematic learning is a transformative process that empowers individuals to expand their knowledge and bridge the gaps in their understanding. By adopting a methodical approach, we can better navigate the vast sea of information with purpose and intention.  

Engage in active seeking, utilizing all the resources at our disposal such as books, online courses, expert advice, and practical experiences. Through systematic learning, one cultivates critical thinking skills, discernment, and the ability to evaluate sources. This diligent pursuit of knowledge empowers individuals to make informed decisions, solve complex problems, and adapt to new challenges, ultimately unlocking their potential for personal growth and success.  

Tian Yi Sector (Life Gua 2 and Life Gua 5) + Yan Nian Sector (Life Gua 8 and Life Gua 5)  

Where we are at the current juncture of our lives, will determine the type of mentors or helpful people that we attract into our lives. Typically, they would be those who may be a step or two ahead of us in the game. If you feel the need to access a better or higher quality pool of mentors, the message from the Well hexagram is to first improve your personal value. As I mentioned in the intro, you can only access the water in the well if your rope is long enough.

Therefore, the arrival of the Well hexagram in your Tian Yi sector is a reminder to demonstrate a genuine commitment to personal growth and self-improvement. This can be achieved through a combination of acquiring new skills, cultivating a strong work ethic, and displaying a genuine passion for learning. Developing expertise in a particular field or becoming well-versed in a specific area of interest enhances personal value and makes one more appealing to potential mentors.  

Additionally, cultivating strong interpersonal skills, such as active listening, empathy, and effective communication, creates a favorable impression and fosters meaningful connections with mentors. By continuously honing one’s abilities and adding value to your life, you can become magnetic to mentors who recognize your potential and are motivated to invest their time and knowledge in your development.  

Jue Ming Sector (Life Gua 3)  

We all have a life system. Some, more disciplined than others. The Well hexagram brings a reminder about the need to be more disciplined to set the stage for achieving success and realizing our fullest potential.  

A disciplined approach involves establishing structured routines, clear goals, and consistent habits. It requires a conscious effort to prioritize tasks, manage time effectively, and maintain focus. By embracing discipline, we minimize distractions and resist the temptation to procrastinate, ensuring that our energy and efforts are channeled towards meaningful pursuits.  

Discipline empowers us to create positive habits and maintain a sense of direction, enabling us to make progress towards our objectives even in the face of challenges. It instills resilience, as we develop the ability to persevere through setbacks and stay committed to our chosen path.  

Ultimately, a disciplined life system fosters personal growth, productivity, and a sense of accomplishment, propelling us towards a more fulfilling and purposeful existence.  

Liu Sha Sector (Life Gua 4)  

For the Life Gua 4 individuals, the arrival of the Well hexagram in your Liu Sha sector is a timely opportunity to monetize that well of knowledge you keep within you. Even if you are not yet in the position to do so, don’t waste this opportunity to improve your personal branding through knowledge sharing.  

However, as per the Well hexagram, this needs to be approached in a systematized and structured manner.  

Improving one’s personal branding through systematized and structured knowledge sharing is a powerful strategy that enhances credibility, visibility, and professional reputation. By adopting a deliberate approach to sharing knowledge, you can position yourself as an expert and thought leader in your respective field. This entails organizing and packaging your expertise into valuable content, such as articles, blog posts, podcasts, or video tutorials, that is accessible and beneficial to your target audience.  

Systematized knowledge sharing involves consistent and planned efforts to deliver high-quality content through various channels, including social media platforms, professional networks, and industry events. By sharing insights, best practices, and innovative ideas, you can then establish yourself as a trusted authority, attracting opportunities for collaboration, mentorship, and career advancement.  

Furthermore, a systematic approach allows for the strategic monitoring and evaluation of the impact of knowledge sharing efforts, enabling you to ultimately refine your personal brand and adapt your strategies based on feedback and engagement metrics. Ultimately, by leveraging systematized and structured knowledge sharing, you will cultivate a powerful personal brand that distinguishes you from others and opens doors to new possibilities and professional growth.  

Sheng Qi Sector (Life Gua 6)  

To be valuable and to be viewed as an endless source of resource, a well needs to be deep. A shallow well is finite, and easily depleted. Since this hexagram is arriving into the Sheng Qi sector of the Life Gua 6 individuals, the message is clearly asking you to dig deep and go the extra mile.  

Enhancing one’s creative powers by going the extra mile is an invigorating journey that unlocks untapped potential and fosters innovative thinking. It involves pushing beyond the boundaries of conventional approaches and embracing a mindset of exploration, curiosity, and continuous improvement.  

Going the extra mile means dedicating extra time, effort, and energy to delve deeper into a creative endeavor, whether it’s brainstorming new ideas, experimenting with different techniques, immersing oneself in extensive research and learning, or creating new strategies and plans.  

By going beyond what is expected or required, individuals expand their creative horizons, challenging themselves to think differently and push the limits of their imagination. This dedication and perseverance often lead to breakthroughs, unique solutions, and novel perspectives that will set you apart and elevate the quality and impact of your creative output. Furthermore, going the extra mile cultivates a sense of pride, satisfaction, and confidence, reinforcing the belief in one’s creative abilities and inspiring others to embrace their own creative potential.  

Fu Wei Sector (Life Gua 7)  

If you are one of those individuals who identify as a free spirit, the message of the Well may jolly well be for you. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a free spirit, living life unencumbered by the constraints that seem to enslave other people.  

But even in a free spirited individual’s life, some form of discipline and establishing effective routines, can help you achieve your goals better.  

By implementing a well-defined system, no matter how free spirited you are, you can still create structure and accountability in your daily life. This involves breaking down larger goals into manageable tasks, setting clear priorities, and creating a step-by-step plan of action. A systematic approach also includes setting specific timelines, creating reminders and deadlines, and utilizing productivity tools and techniques to stay organized and focused. Additionally, incorporating rewards and positive reinforcement within the system can help incentivize discipline and create a sense of accomplishment.  

By implementing a systematic approach, even the most free-spirited individual can gradually build discipline as you adhere to the established routines and habits. Over time, this systematic practice becomes ingrained, transforming discipline into a natural and integral part of your life, ultimately leading to increased productivity, personal growth, and overall success.      

Wu Gui Sector (Life Gua 9)  

The Well hexagram can also be an indication of a conservative mindset that may be a little too short-sighted. Imagine oneself at the bottom of the well. Your view of the sky is limited only to that circle of stone that frames the sky. The deeper you are in the well, the smaller that circle of light becomes.  

Since this hexagram is coming into your spiritual sector, it’s a timely reminder to look into your own spiritual growth. Is it too constrained? Are your current practices shrinking your spirit? Ask yourself, is there a need to look beyond that tiny circle of light to discover a world of endless possibilities beyond?  

While structure and discipline can provide a foundation for growth, an overly rigid approach may stifle the natural flow of spiritual exploration and personal connection. It is essential to create space for spontaneity, intuition, and self-expression within the practice.  

Allowing room for flexibility and openness enables us to adapt our spiritual journey to our unique needs, experiences, and beliefs. By embracing a more expansive mindset, the Well hexagram is encouraging us to explore various modalities, traditions, and perspectives, drawing inspiration from diverse sources.  

This broader approach encourages personal growth, deepens understanding, and promotes a holistic integration of spiritual principles into everyday life. Balancing structure with fluidity enables individuals to experience the richness and dynamism of their spirituality, fostering a sense of connection, authenticity, and profound self-discovery.  


Simply, stand in the middle of your house. Face the door. Use the compass app in your mobile device and turn to look for the relevant sector that you intend to use. Once identified, just do the activity related to the objective.
