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 these 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.  


Leadership, team building, cooperation, and group action is the theme of the day with the Fellowship hexagram. This hexagram is about building a team that shares a common goal, brand, and culture through leadership and your reputation. It’s about the ability to inspire group action.  

Tian Yi Sector (Life Gua 1)

Our personal Tian Yi sectors govern our ability to attract mentors and generally helpful people into our lives. But the arrival of the Fellowship hexagram is about to upend all that, albeit, only for a month. The message of the Fellowship hexagram? Let’s help ourselves by helping others.  

This concept embraces the interconnectedness of human beings. When we extend a helping hand to those in need, we not only uplift their lives but also experience personal growth and fulfillment. Engaging in acts of kindness and support for others cultivates empathy, compassion, and a deeper understanding of the world around us. By dedicating our time, resources, and skills to help others, we foster a sense of purpose and contribute to creating a more inclusive and harmonious society.  

The act of giving unselfishly not only strengthens our relationships with others but also enhances our own well-being, as it boosts our self-esteem, provides a sense of gratitude, and reminds us of the inherent goodness within humanity. Ultimately, by helping others, we embark on a transformative journey that enriches both our lives and the lives of those we touch, leaving a lasting positive impact on the world.  

Huo Hai Sector (Life Gua 2 and Life Gua 5)  

The true strength of a community lies not in the numbers of same-same people. In fact, the more diverse the group, the stronger the team. Because in diversity comes the opportunity to learn from others through collaborative action.  

Learning from others through teamwork and collaboration is a dynamic process that fuels personal and collective growth. When we come together with individuals from diverse backgrounds and expertise, we open ourselves to a wealth of knowledge, perspectives, and experiences that we may not possess individually.  

Through active participation and exchange of ideas, we gain valuable insights, challenge our own assumptions, and broaden our horizons. Collaboration encourages us to harness the strengths of each team member, fostering creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills. By working together, we develop essential interpersonal skills such as communication, empathy, and compromise, which are crucial not only in achieving common goals but also in building stronger connections and relationships.  

The collective wisdom and collective efforts of a team propel us forward, enabling us to achieve more than we ever could on our own. Ultimately, learning from others through teamwork and collaboration empowers us to reach new heights and create a positive impact in our personal and professional endeavors.  

Fu Wei Sector (Life Gua 3)  

The arrival of the Fellowship hexagram in your Fu Wei sector is a brilliant opportunity to enhance your unique brand of leadership by blending your authentic self with a visionary mindset and a deep understanding of the needs and aspirations of others.  

A unique brand of leadership goes beyond traditional models and embraces individual strengths, values, and personal experiences. It involves leading with integrity, empathy, and adaptability, while also inspiring and motivating others to achieve their full potential.  

Such leadership encourages innovation, embraces diversity, and fosters an inclusive and empowering environment where every voice is valued. By cultivating a distinct leadership style, one can inspire trust, build strong relationships, and effectively navigate through challenges and change.  

A unique brand of leadership sets the stage for positive transformation, creating a ripple effect that influences and inspires others to become leaders in their own right. It is through this distinct blend of authenticity, vision, and impact that one can make a lasting mark on the world and leave a legacy that resonates with others.  

Yan Nian Sector (Life Gua 4)  

Sometimes, we get so caught up with our own lives that we may have forgotten about the need to consistently expand our social networks. If you are a Life Gua 4 individual, the arrival of the Fellowship hexagram in your Yan Nian sector is a timely reminder.  

I’m not going to write a long and preachy paragraph for this. Just get out there and create new meaningful connections that will bolster your wellbeing for the coming years.  

Wu Gui Sector (Life Gua 6)  

Cooperating with petty people can be challenging, but with the arrival of the Fellowship hexagram in your personal Wu Gui sector, this may be what you are being challenged with in August.  

In such situations, patience, understanding and a strategic mindset is called for. Firstly, it’s crucial to remain calm and composed when interacting with them. Reacting impulsively or engaging in petty behavior yourself will only escalate the situation. Instead, focus on maintaining a positive and professional demeanor.  

Secondly, try to empathize with their perspective. Understanding their underlying motivations or insecurities can help diffuse tension and find common ground. Be attentive to their concerns and communicate in a respectful and non-confrontational manner.  

Thirdly, set clear boundaries and assert your own values. Refuse to get caught up in their pettiness or engage in gossip or negativity. Instead, demonstrate integrity, fairness, and a commitment to collaboration.  

Lastly, seek support from others if needed. Reach out to trusted colleagues or supervisors who can provide guidance or mediate conflicts. Remember that with the Fellowship hexagram, your ultimate goal is to foster a harmonious and productive working environment, and by rising above petty behavior, you can influence others positively and create a more cooperative atmosphere. And who knows? You may achieve a minor spiritual breakthrough yourself!  

Jue Ming Sector (Life Gua 7)  

A team bonded with a common goal possesses an extraordinary strength that enables them to conquer any trials and tribulations they may encounter. This is the message to the Life Gua 7 individual with the Fellowship hexagram in your Jue Ming sector.  

When individuals align their efforts towards a shared objective, a powerful synergy emerges, fostering resilience, unity, and unwavering determination. In the face of challenges, the team can draw upon each member’s unique skills and perspectives, pooling their collective knowledge and expertise to devise innovative solutions.  

Open communication and a supportive atmosphere allow for effective problem-solving, where everyone’s input is valued and respected. Additionally, the shared goal acts as a driving force, inspiring team members to persevere and go the extra mile, even when faced with obstacles.  

Trust and collaboration deepen within the team, creating a sense of camaraderie and mutual support that propels them forward. As they navigate through trials and tribulations together, the team becomes more adaptable, learning and growing from each experience. Ultimately, their shared commitment and unwavering spirit enable them to surmount challenges and achieve success, emerging stronger and more cohesive than ever before.  

Liu Sha Sector (Life Gua 8 and Life Gua 5)  

Enhancing our abilities to inspire group action involves a combination of effective communication, charismatic leadership, and fostering a shared sense of purpose.  

Firstly, clear and compelling communication is essential. Articulating a compelling vision, outlining objectives, and conveying expectations are crucial in rallying others towards a common goal. Sharing stories, anecdotes, and examples that resonate emotionally can ignite passion and inspire others to take action.  

Secondly, charismatic leadership plays a vital role. Being an authentic and enthusiastic leader who leads by example can motivate and energize the group. Building relationships, showing empathy, and actively listening to the concerns and ideas of team members create a supportive environment that encourages active participation.  

Finally, fostering a shared sense of purpose is key. Connecting the individual roles and contributions to the overarching goal provides a sense of meaning and belonging. Celebrating achievements, recognizing efforts, and fostering a culture of collaboration further strengthens the group’s motivation and commitment.  

By enhancing our abilities to inspire group action, we can mobilize collective efforts, unlock the full potential of individuals, and achieve remarkable results together.  

Sheng Qi Sector (Life Gua 9)  

Be it as a career professional, an entrepreneur, or even in our personal lives, having a team of people behind us can propel us to greater heights and make it easier to achieve our goals. We’re only as good as the team we’ve forged. The arrival of the Fellowship hexagram in the Life Gua 9’s personal Sheng Qi sector is a reminder to build that team or alliance.  

Building a personal team or alliance involves strategically identifying and cultivating relationships with individuals who complement and support our goals and aspirations.  

Firstly, it is important to clarify our own objectives and areas where we require assistance or expertise. This self-awareness helps in identifying the right individuals who possess the skills, knowledge, and resources that can contribute to our success.  

Secondly, reaching out and networking with like-minded individuals who share similar values and ambitions can help establish a foundation for collaboration. Building genuine connections based on trust, mutual respect, and shared interests creates a solid support system.  

Thirdly, nurturing these relationships through effective communication, active engagement, and regular collaboration is essential. Sharing ideas, exchanging feedback, and providing mutual support foster a sense of teamwork and camaraderie.  

Finally, recognizing and appreciating the contributions of our personal team or alliance members is crucial. Celebrating achievements and acknowledging their efforts strengthens the bond and encourages continued collaboration.  

Building a personal team or alliance provides a support structure that amplifies our abilities, expands our opportunities, and enhances our overall success on both personal and professional levels.  


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.
