- The school of forms is the oldest direction in feng shui documented in ancient texts that we inherited from our ancestors. Initially, this direction was used for the construction and orientation of crypts, graves for the dead, and later it began to be used for the construction and improvement of housing. This feng shui school examines and analyzes the forms of the landscape of the area and finds symbols in natural forms. This feng shui school does not use compass direction. The original name for this type of feng shui is the San He (Three Harmonies) school.
- The compass school includes numerical calculations and uses tools: the Chinese Lo Pan compass, the Ba Gua trigrams (identify nine key areas or sectors that affect various aspects of life), the Lo Shu magic square (used to analyze Flying Stars).
Xuan Kun School , also known as Flying Stars. This system has been known since ancient times by the great Master Jian Da Hong, who lived 400 years ago, although it appeared much earlier, around the beginning of the Ming dynasty. Further, this system of Flying Stars was kept in a narrow circle and it was passed from teacher to student and was published only about 25 years ago, becoming today one of the most popular feng shui systems used both in the West and in the East.
Ba Zhai School , also known as the Eight Palaces. In accordance with the teachings of this school, the plan of the house should be divided into permanent sections of Bagua, consistent with the directions of the compass, which are associated with an individual Gua number (Gua is calculated by the date of birth).
