The Importance of the Mountain Star

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins

“山管人丁,水管财” (“Mountains govern benefactors, authority and harmony while Water governs wealth”) is one of the most important principles in the classics of Imperial Feng Shui.

This principle reiterates the most important factor in Imperial Feng Shui in that the balance of Yin and Yang is the key to achieving success in life.

As Mountains represent Yin, and Water represents Yang and governs wealth luck, Imperial Home Feng Shui is defined as achieving a balance of elements and Yin and Yang within your home or office space.

In this article, we explore the importance of the Mountain star in Imperial Feng Shui.

Mountains – Chinese History

From as early as the Neolithic times, the Chinese have preferred to live in a place which is “bound by mountains and near water”. Much of the archeological evidence of primitive settlements in China has shown this tendency.

Physically, mountains are the “skeletons” of the land, providing them with protection from the weather and predators. It also provides them with food and resources in the form of a body of water, which represents a source of life and means of transportation.

This is inversely correlated to Imperial Feng Shui, and “bound by mountains and near water” is known as the ideal Xue (穴) spot.

The phrase “藏凤聚气” or “Hide from the Wind and Gather the Qi” is often used in conjunction with the phrase “負陰抱陽”, which means “Carry the Yin and Embrace the Yang” because both phrases aim to find an ideal Imperial Feng Shui spot (Xue) where the Yin and Yang are balanced and where Sheng Qi is assembled.

Significance of Mountains in Imperial Feng Shui

In China, the Mountain is regarded as one of the most powerful symbols on Earth, playing the same role in Chinese Cosmology as the Emperor did in society; ensuring cosmic order and permanence. The Chinese Emperor emperor never failed to have the mountain symbol decorating the wall behind his royal thrones to portray his mandate and authority.

The mountain is also the symbol of the emperor’s ability to rule Earth and water, a symbol of stability and of the Earth itself. It also played the role of empowering the Emperor with benefactor support, authority and nobility – achieved via activating the Mountain star position within the Imperial palace.

Mountain Star

San Yuan Xuan Kong Flying Star is one of the key principles that Imperial Feng Shui masters use to map the energy chart of a property. It allows an Imperial Feng Shui master to identify the positions of the Sitting Star (Mountain Star) and the Facing Star (Water Star).

A mountain is static and stable. Hence, it is associated with power and support. Water, in any of its forms (river, lake, or ocean) represents flow; it is dynamic and thus associated with economy and finance.

Activating the Mountain Star

During the Qing Dynasty, Emperor Qian Long’s team of Imperial Feng Shui masters overcame the challenges of building the Imperial palace near the ideal Xue (穴) spot by creating the Qian Long Jadeite Mountain to activate the Mountain Star.

While it’s impossible to be surrounded by such auspicious landform features as we live in an urban city such as Singapore, Master David’s utmost dedication to his clients is reflected in Imperial Harvest’s Qian Long Jadeite Mountain collection.

The Qian Long Jadeite Mountain collection is the result of 4 years of intensive research and development to ensure our clients enjoy the same quality of Imperial Feng Shui treasures owned by Emperor Qian Long.
