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.  


Look at the Sincerity hexagram. Xun on top, Dui at the bottom – the two broken lines meeting in the middle. It looks like two people talking face to face, connecting soul to soul and heart to heart. It’s the wisdom of sincerity.  

The two Yang lines at the top and the bottom of the hexagram is putting up an external show of toughness. But the two Yin lines in the middle reflects inner vulnerabilities. Whenever this hexagram shows up, the word ‘honesty’ will also crop up. Self-honesty, honesty with others, as well as how we relate to one another.  

Fu Wei Sector (Life Gua 1)

Self-honesty is a fundamental aspect of personal growth and development. It entails being truthful and authentic with oneself, acknowledging one’s strengths and weaknesses, and facing reality without pretense or denial.  

By embracing self-honesty, we allow ourselves the chance to gain a clear understanding of who we are and what we truly want. By honestly assessing our values, passions, and aspirations, we can align our actions and decisions with our authentic selves, leading to a more fulfilling and purpose-driven life. This is true wisdom, not something we embrace from the outside, but wisdom that comes from within.  

Jue Ming Sector (Life Gua 2 and Life Gua 5)  

Letting go of prejudice and embracing a receptive mindset towards the truth of the world is essential for personal growth and fostering a harmonious society. Prejudice, whether it be based on race, religion, gender, or any other factor, blinds us to the richness and diversity of human experiences. By shedding preconceived notions and biases, we open ourselves up to the vast tapestry of perspectives, cultures, and ideas that exist in the world. We also open ourselves to viewing things from different perspectives. This willingness to embrace the truth as it really is enables us to challenge our own assumptions, broaden our understanding, and cultivate empathy towards others.  

When we let go of prejudice, we create space for genuine connections and meaningful interactions. By acknowledging and respecting the unique experiences and identities of others, we foster inclusivity and celebrate the richness of our shared humanity.  

This openness allows us to engage in constructive dialogues, learn from different viewpoints, and collectively work towards solutions that benefit all. Additionally, embracing the truth of the world requires humility and a willingness to accept that our own beliefs and opinions may be flawed or incomplete. It encourages us to seek knowledge, explore different perspectives, and engage in critical thinking. This pursuit of truth not only expands our own understanding but also contributes to the progress of society as a whole. By embracing an open mind and letting go of prejudice, we create a world that values diversity, equality, and the pursuit of truth, ultimately fostering a more inclusive and enlightened society.  

Tian Yi Sector (Life Gua 3)  

For the Life Gua 3 individual, the presence of the Sincerity hexagram in your Tian Yi sector can signal the arrival of a potential mentor or noble person in the coming months.  

Establishing a mentor relationship built on open communication can be immensely beneficial to create a nurturing environment for learning, guidance, and support. Open communication allows mentees to share their goals, aspirations, and challenges, providing mentors with a clear understanding of their needs and areas for development. By openly expressing their concerns and seeking advice, mentees can receive valuable insights, perspectives, and practical strategies from their mentors, who can draw upon their own experiences to offer guidance and encouragement.  

Furthermore, open communication in a mentor relationship fosters trust and mutual respect. When mentees feel comfortable expressing their thoughts, fears, and doubts, they create a safe space for vulnerability. In turn, mentors can provide empathetic listening, understanding, and constructive feedback, creating a supportive atmosphere that encourages mentees to explore their potential.  

Open communication also allows mentees to receive honest and constructive criticism, helping them identify areas for improvement and providing an opportunity for growth. Mentors can offer valuable insights, challenge mentees’ perspectives, and provide guidance on how to overcome obstacles. Through this open exchange, mentees can develop new skills, gain confidence, and make informed decisions, ultimately accelerating their personal and professional development. Overall, open communication within a mentor relationship nurtures trust, facilitates growth, and empowers individuals to reach their full potential.  

Sheng Qi Sector (Life Gua 4)  

For the Life Gua 4 individual, the arrival of the Sincerity hexagram in your personal Sheng Qi sector is an opportunity to use dialogue as a platform to genuinely understand empathize with the needs, desires, and values of your customers. This type of authenticity goes beyond mere marketing.  

By taking the time to listen, observe, and engage with your target audience, you can gain valuable insights into their lives and experiences. This understanding allows you to craft offerings that not only meet their practical needs but also touch their emotions and evoke a meaningful response.  

To create truly authentic products or services, it is crucial to align your brand’s values and purpose with those of your customers. By staying true to your core identity and mission, you can establish a genuine and consistent brand narrative that resonates with your audience on a deeper level.  

Authenticity also involves transparency and honesty in your interactions, ensuring that your customers feel valued, respected, and heard. This means delivering on your promises, admitting mistakes when they occur, and constantly seeking feedback to improve your offerings. By prioritizing the customer experience and genuinely caring about their satisfaction, you can cultivate a loyal customer base who not only appreciates your products or services but also becomes advocates for your brand, spreading the word organically and building a strong community of supporters.  

Liu Sha Sector (Life Gua 6)  

In a world inundated with false messaging and misinformation, honest communications serve as a powerful yet rarely used tool to cut through the noise and establish trust with your audience. By prioritizing transparency, accuracy, and integrity in your communications, you can differentiate yourself from those who rely on deceitful tactics.  

Honest communication involves providing reliable and verifiable information, clearly stating the limitations or uncertainties of your claims, and openly addressing any potential biases or conflicts of interest. By presenting the facts and being upfront about the strengths and weaknesses of your offerings, you build credibility and demonstrate a genuine commitment to your audience’s well-being.  

Huo Hai Sector (Life Gua 7)  

Success, they say, is a lousy teacher. So true! We learn nothing from our successes! The Sincerity hexagram, strong on the outside and vulnerable on the inside, is an opportunity to grow by confronting and defeating our fear of failure. In other words, dare to fail.  

Self-improvement through daring to fail is a transformative journey of personal growth and development. By pushing ourselves outside our comfort zones and embracing the possibility of failure, we open the door to continuous learning and self-discovery.  

Each failure becomes an opportunity for reflection, self-evaluation, and improvement. It allows us to identify areas of weakness, challenge limiting beliefs, and develop new skills or perspectives.  

Through the process of daring to fail, we cultivate resilience, perseverance, and a mindset that sees setbacks as stepping stones towards progress. We learn to view failure not as a defeat but as a valuable teacher that propels us forward on our path to self-improvement. By daring to fail, we foster a growth-oriented mindset, where we become comfortable with discomfort and see mistakes as valuable feedback for growth. It is through this journey of daring to fail that we unleash our potential, discover our true capabilities, and ultimately become the best version of ourselves.  

Wu Gui Sector (Life Gua 8 and Life Gua 5)  

The Sincerity hexagram in the Wu Gui sector of the Life Gua 8 and certain Life Gua 5 individuals is a message that it is okay to drop that façade and allow yourself the luxury of spiritual growth by having the courage to show the real you.  

This can be a transformative process that involves embracing vulnerability, authenticity, and self-acceptance. By allowing yourself to be seen for who you truly are, without masks or pretense, you create space for profound self-discovery and connection with your spiritual essence.  

When you have the courage to show the real you, you invite the universe, higher powers, or your own inner wisdom to guide you on a journey of self-exploration and growth. It is through this openness and vulnerability that you can cultivate a deeper understanding of your purpose, values, and interconnectedness with the world around you.  

By shedding the layers of ego and embracing your authentic self, you align with your spiritual truth, igniting a sense of inner peace, fulfillment, and harmony. Furthermore, by showing the real you, you inspire and give others permission to do the same, fostering an environment of genuine connection and collective spiritual growth.  

Yan Nian Sector (Life Gua 9)  

For the Life Gua 9 individual, the Sincerity hexagram in your Yan Nian sector is an opportunity to transform your relationships through open and honest communication. It’s a reminder to think about how we talk to each other, a reminder about the importance of honesty in relationships.  

When we engage in open and honest conversations with our loved ones, we create a safe space for genuine expression and vulnerability. By actively listening, being transparent, and sharing our thoughts and emotions authentically, we promote a sense of mutual respect and empathy.  

Open communication allows us to address conflicts, misunderstandings, and unresolved issues head-on, rather than letting them fester and damage the relationship. By expressing our needs, desires, and concerns openly, we invite our loved ones to do the same, creating an environment of open dialogue and shared growth. Through honest communication, we build a foundation of trust, as our words and actions align, and we demonstrate our commitment to the well-being of our relationships. It paves the way for deeper emotional intimacy, genuine connection, and the resolution of differences, ultimately strengthening and nourishing our personal relationships.  


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.
