luopanTraditional Feng Shui masters have many “no luopan opening” days within each year.  These days are usually called “master-killing days” (杀师日 ) to really scare practitioners to think twice before opening their luopan (Feng Shui compass) for audit.

The #1 section below is taken from my “Practical Date-Selection Methods Collection” course manual.

  1. MASTER YANG’S AVOIDANCE DAYS 揚公忌日

These 13 days are not suitable to do anything.  It is also called “Master-killing days”—not suitable to do Feng Shui audit, grand-opening, marriage, setup bed, burial, trading, receiving payment, taking new post and the like.

Avoid being called “Master” in these days.  And don’t call people “master” in these days too.

 MASTER YANG’S AVOIDANCE DAYS

MONTH (lunar) DAY MONTH DAY

Second (Mao) 11 Eighth (You) 27
Third (Chen) 9 Nineth (Xu) 25
Fourth (Si) 7 Tenth (Hai) 23
Fifth (Wu) 5 Eleventh (Zi) 21
Sixth (Wei) 2 Twelveth (Chou) 19

 

    2.  ANNUAL LUO-HOU DAYS 每年罗喉日

Luo-hou” is the name of a star.  According to traditional belief, using a luopan during Luo-hou hour days/hours will be hazardous and dangerous to the Feng Shui practitioner.

CHOU Si/ hai WEI Wu/ chen

CHEN Si/ chou XU Mao/ wu
SI You/ wei HAI Chen/ mao

 

All these no-luopan or master-killing days can easily knockout a month of working days per year, not to mention everyday also has two 2-hour blocks of “master-killing hours“.

In general, if you current luck is not low and you do not do yin (tomb) Feng Shui or old houses with “hidden residents” (ghosts), not following these taboo days may not affect you much.  If otherwise, you may either become disoriented, have fever/ diarrhea, suffer a major illness, accident or even death after doing a Feng Shui audit.

FENG SHUI AUDIT PRECAUTIONS AND PROTECTION FOR PRACTITIONERS

For safety, you should not do Feng Shui audit after 5 pm (because ghosts become active).  When doing Feng Shui audit, carry talismans or religious objects for protection, do not drink anything provided by client other than canned soda (no ice cubes) and do not use client’s bathroom (not leaving your energy imprint there).  As an extra precaution, Feng Shui remedies/ fixes should not be discussed inside client’s house.  This is because certain Feng Shui remedies could change the energy field of the house and drive the ghosts away (you don’t want them to know it is your idea or they may follow you).

Not everyone can afford not generating income for almost a month per year due to this luopan taboo.  There are Daoist and Buddhist mantra that one can chant to override this taboo.  But you must get authorization from the master (teacher) to use it.  Below is one that my students may chant before using a luopan for protection, even if the day is not a master-killing day.

 罗盘忌讳化解咒语

“一二三四五,金木水火土,无形通天地,八卦定乾坤,盘古开天地,山隍土地护,姜尚先师到,百煞请回避,吾奉杨公祖师令,到此开盘定九宫,天无忌,地无忌,阴阳无忌,百无禁忌。”

念毕咒语后,用剑指在罗盘上画四纵五横,顺转三圈,边画边念:天无忌,地无忌,阴阳无忌,百无禁忌。
