Comments from Feng Shui Experts:
The Feng Shui Software has been "road tested" by a number of well-known Feng Shui enthusiasts, including:

Stephen Skinner
"a really useful product that should be on the PC of everyone interested in Feng Shui."

Derek Walters (author of "Chinese Geomancy" and a range of books on Feng Shui)
"Visually stunning, and extremely user friendly. A 'must-have' for the keen student of Real Feng Shui"

Jon Sandifer (author of "Feng Shui Journey", and expert on Nine Star Ki Astrology)
"..very impressed with the 9 Star calculations. I like the simplicity of the system, it is very user friendly. It allows you to build up a file of names and dates of birth with ease. I also like the effort gone into calculating which year and month you occupy. This product saves a lot of calculation and I highly recommend it."

Mark Shackelford's Feng Shui Software

The Feng Shui Professional program has been developed in conjunction with the various Feng Shui experts of the Feng Shui for Modern Living magazine, especially Stephen Skinner who, as editor and author, was the first person to introduce Feng Shui to the Western World with his ground-breaking book "The Living Earth Manual" published in 1982.

The program has had over ten years of continuous development, and has been tested and tried by a number of Feng Shui experts, including Derek Walters and Jon Sandifer. New features are being developed each year - the program now includes a Floor Plan drawing feature, Flying Star Cures and Enhancements and a number of other new features - click here for details.

It was also chosen as the program to be sold in conjunction with Master C.S. Chang's "Feng Shui Practitioner's Kit" from the Realm of Feng Shui at http://www.trofs.com.

The program provides lots of information on each aspect of Feng Shui - whether it is the Four Pillars astrology, the I Ching divination or the different Feng Shui schools - Compass or Black Hat, or even the Japanese version of Feng Shui called Nine Star Ki.

The Expert and Professional versions provide more complex Feng Shui features such as Flying Star Feng Shui and an 18-ring Lo Pan compass.

USING THE PROGRAM
It is very easy to get started with the program - it is a standard Windows systems, with "Point and Click" using the Mouse. Once the program has been installed, just move the Mouse around the Window and Click on the Buttons. 

Almost every picture or icon that you see on the screen is "Live" - which means if you hover the Mouse over it, a caption will be displayed with some useful information, and quite often if you Double Click on it - a new window will 'pop-up' with lots more useful information.

If you are get stuck, confused or not sure what to do - email me!

PRINTING
The print outs are designed so that you can build up files about each client, with a summary of the details from each screen, so that you can refer to the data when making the specific reports for the client.

In particular, the Pa Kua and Ba Guas are designed as large black and white diagrams which are used when checking out rooms to make notes on.

The program is a powerful tool to speed up the process of calculating, reading and interpreting Feng Shui, but should not replace the individual consultant's personal experience - this is what your clients are paying for - the personal touch, not just a pre-formatted standard report.

So the reports do NOT have any interpretation on them - as this is dependent on the theories, ideas, experience and training of the individual consultant - each Master has slightly different ideas as to what the readings mean. Any interpretations that I would have are unlikely to match what you would interpret from your experience, or indeed from your understanding of the individual client.

FENG SHUI and CHINESE ASTROLOGY
Remember that Chinese Astrology is based on thousands of years of use, and although many of the readings may appear vague, obscure or irrelevant, this is because they are designed to let you get into your subconscious. They are valuable because you need to interpret the Feng Shui readings to match your current situation. 

You need not take any of the readings too seriously, and you should apply common sense to any actions you take as a result.
