Feng shui is an ancient philosophy, it's origins well over six thousand years old. There are two very distinctive schools or doctrines that developed independently of each other. These are the Form School and the Compass School. Over time, however, the differences between these two schools has become less obvious.
Form School put most of it's emphasis on the physical aspects of the planet, like particular landscapes and is considered to be more intuitive and not very easy to interprid and practice.
On the other hand the Compass School is a lot harder to learn, but once you have the basic understanding under your belt, it is much easier to implement as it is based more on precise formulas and less on intuition, which sometimes is difficult for people to feel confident with in the beginning.
In addition to these two schools of Feng Shui, there are also other factors that you will need to take into consideration such as the date of your birth. Time plays a major factor in anyone's future and fortunes. The Chinese have a particular numerology that is an integral factor in Feng shui that identifies different areas of your home as being either lucky for you or unlucky for you depending your date of birth.
In addition to knowing what your own particular number is, your date of birth also offers insights into your personal element. This has a dramatic effect on how you influence your environment and how it can influence you. Understanding the productive and destructive cycles of elements will help you to enhance your environment further.
