Eight House Theory

Under the Eight House theory, all houses are divided into eight types based on the eight trigrams from the Later Heaven Trigram. Each trigram represents a direction in the compass, we have eight directions (45 degree per direction) and henceforth we get eight types of houses. These eight houses are further categorized into two groups, the East group and the West group.

To identify what type of house a person has, a check must be done on the direction of where the front (facing) and the back is (sitting). A house sitting North and facing South is labeled a North or Kan house. A table of the eight different types of houses is found below:

The east group belongs to the water, wood and fire category while the west group belongs to metal and earth category (based on the representing element of the individual houses). 

The east group houses are in harmonious relationship with east group houses while the west group houses are in harmonious relationship with the west group houses. 

However, the east and west group houses clash with each other because the elements are in a conflicting relationship. 

Like houses, people are divided into East and West group people. This enables one to find out if the house is good for you and in particular, the four auspicious directions namely:
Prosperity
Health
Longevity
Prime

and four inauspicious directions for you:
Disaster
Five Ghosts
Six Sha
Death
