FSW is delighted to introduce David Burton, mathematical genius and very successful Astrologer from Australia. David and his Russian wife the lovely Elena, who is herself an expert in medieval astrology were in Kuala Lumpur recently to learn feng shui, and in the course of the week long Master Practitioners Program, impressed us all with the mathematical co-relations he picked up instantly from all the formulas used in feng shui. In this feature on the magic of numbers, David walks us through the vital significance of the auspicious numbers and how they are “hidden” beneath the numbers of the Lo Shu square and in the compass of directions – two vital tools of feng shui, in particular the supreme whole number – 9!

It doesn’t matter which way you add the numbers they add to 15. The Lo Shu square is the magic square of three. It is also the square of the planet Saturn, so 3X3 =9! Feng Shui definitely has a correlation
