According to the principles, 9 stars are equivalent to 9 points each year. Eight of these points represent the directions (main and intermediate directions), and one represents the center. There are also elements in Feng Shui. These elements are; water, earth, fire, wood and metal. These five elements are found in nature and are used intentionally to create color, harmony and positive life energy / chi in some parts of the house.
