What? Hmm… yes, I noticed someone searched for “Flying Star” on this site, hoping to find something useful about applying the Flying Stars theory to the Elements of Numbers (EON) method. I’d not say the person who did the search was confused as I used to be like that, and for that matter, am still doing it now and then, hoping it could lead me elsewhere to gather the information I need.
The Flying Stars theory is practised by many Feng Shui professionals and enthusiasts. In fact, I have completed advanced courses on this method more than a decade ago. While the Flying Stars theory is handy and practical from Feng Shui perspectives, and I’m applying the “salt water” and other FS cures based on its formation theories regularly, we should not confuse them with the Elements of Numbers (EON) method. Nevertheless, the use of numerological charts instead of charts derived from other Chinese systems (like Bazi, ZiWeiDouShu, QiMenDunJia, MeiHuaYiShou, and WenWangYiJing) is still relevant in their own application methods.
The closest I can think of when relating the Flying Stars formation into a nine-square chart would be the Nine-Star Ki Astrology (ZiuGongMingLi), Chinese Numerology, Nine Squares, and my enhanced NSQ Profiling methods.
Some Feng Shui authors wrote about Chinese Numerology, by using the Chinese or lunar birth dates as references, and then plotted them into a nine-square chart. This is similar to the “NSQ Profiling,” but the numbers are arranged in Flying Stars formation steps, which means the base number 6 is located at the bottom row right column, instead of middle column top row. And the sequence of the numbers can change periodically. Interpretations are based on the numbers associated with the Feng Shui principles, which means the number 6 is associated with the Water element in Flying Stars, and not to the Metal element that we associated with from the Elements of Numbers (EON) method. I was exploring its relevance and practicality around the same time when I was searching on the EON method. One drawback or constraint that I discovered on the Chinese Numerology method is that it requires the date input to be in Chinese calendrical format, which means you need to convert your Gregorian birth date into the Chinese lunar calendar format. Next, the element associations to the numbers are different from the EON method, and it’d extremely confused to combine both Chinese Numerology and Elements of Numbers methods together during profiling.
I’ve conducted the “NSQ Profiling” courses some years back for EON/FEN students. Like the EON method, its nine-square charting approach is thus easy and straightforward. You can plot the chart with a pen/pencil and paper which is what I like as you could profile a person anytime, anywhere. I have done much research and enhanced the nine-square chart by including periodic profiling and behavioural trends as well. This means the NSQ Profiling is different from other nine-square charting methods. Even if you have completed PON, UCMHP, LifeQuest, and other PON–style classes, knowing and understanding the NSQ Profiling method, and applying it could complement and, in fact, enhance your profiling analysis with extra clues.
