Feng Shui Professional Program - screenshots
The Feng Shui Professional program is for the Feng Shui Enthusiast, or the Feng Shui Consultant. It gives you access to every Feng Shui calculation that you might need - and even has a built-in Lo Pan Compass, so you don't need to buy anything other than a simple magnetic compass (like you get from an outdoor shop).
The Feng Shui programs provide information and calculations on all the aspects of Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui. First we will consider the Astrological aspects, and then look at the Feng Shui features (click here to go straight to the Feng Shui section). The program also provides a wide range of Divination tools, such as I Ching and Mah Jong (click here to to the Divination section).
The latest version also contains Feng Shui for Garden features - click here to check these out...

The following screen-shot shows the main screen, with the icons that you click to access all the features, calculations, displays and readings.
1. Your Chinese Horoscope - based on the Eight Pillars, this shows your Astrological make-up, with details ranging from your Chinese Animal, to your Element Balance, with simple hints on how to help you make the best of your life, your character and your environment.
2. Next, you can use the Chinese Astrological Relationships to find out how compatible you are with your partner, your family, your friends or your business associates. There is even a built-in list of famous people so you can see whether you would be compatible with your favourite actress or rock-star!
3. Taking the Chinese Elements a bit further, you can find out how your Life will work out, using the 12 phases of Chinese Life Cycle - from birth through to death. Along the way you can find out auspicious years for various activities.
4. And if that is not enough detail - you can display your Chinese Luck Pillars - to see how you will fare over the coming years, based on how your Elements relate to the elements of the selected periods.
5. Next is the Japanese style Nine Star Ki, based on the Lo Shu Magic Square - this gives a different slant on your character, and can show you details of your character, your nature, aspects of your relationships and can also look into your future.
6. Nine Star Ki Directions are useful to determine favourable directions for moving, travelling or orienting houses.
7. You can use the Elements of the day to determine the Auspicious (and Bad) activities from the Feng Shui Daily Almanac.
8. And for the more technically minded the program will display all the Daily Elements for any given date, so that you can make your own interpretations
9. The Monthly Chinese Calendar gives you a snap shot of the month ahead, with easy to understand symbols showing Good days and Bad days.
10. The basic Feng Shui display is the Compass School Pa Kua, whose 8 locations show you the good and bad parts of your Room, House, Office or Garden. Pop-up windows give you ideas on Enhancements and Cures.
11. In America, the Black Hat School Ba Gua, based on the location of the Front Door, is very popular.
12. The first step in more complex readings comes with the Flying Star Feng Shui, which is based on 24 locations, rather than the 8 locations of the Pa Kua.
13. This is followed by the full Lo Pan Compass, which is represented in the program with an 18 ring compass, and includes readings at every angle round 360 degrees.
14. The Lo Pan Compass readings show the Elements, Animals, Yin/Yang and Nine Star readings for each of the 360 degrees.
15. To put all the Feng Shui information together, the program allows you to superimpose the Pa Kua and Ba Gua lines on a Floor Plan of your Home, Office or Garden.
16. Feng Shui theory also includes the ability to determine Luck from Feng Shui Measurements, which are included as a feng Shui Ruler in the program
17. The main Divination tool used for thousands of years in China is the I Ching or "Book of Changes". The program includes a sophisticated I Ching divination feature and you can throw the Hexagram using Coins or Yarrow stalks.
18. The program also includes an I Ching Lottery number generator, where you can use the I Ching readings to work out the best set of numbers for the Lottery.
19. Another popular form of divination uses the Mah Jong tiles - rather like the Western Tarot cards.
20. Numerology can also be used to look into someone's character from the numbers that are derived from their name.
21. The program also includes daily Fortune "Cookies" - just for fun!
22. A new feature is the I Ching 'Tarot' reading, where the interpretation is based on the relationship between selected I Ching hexagrams and the Ba Gua layout.
23. A wide range of pop-up windows show Help Topics - with a quick introduction to all the Feng Shui features,
