Male Fertility Has Support in Feng Shui
In past articles and in my books, I have written about some Feng Shui circumstances which can affect fertility, with the assumption and emphasis on the woman’s role.
However, there are some things a man can do to increase his own fertility. In the East-West School of Feng Shui (Ba Zhai), each person has preferred and less-preferred personal directions based on their personal Kua. This is also called a Personal Trigram and it is based on your year of birth. In The Feng Shui Matrix, I give a rundown of what each of the eight basic directions means for each personal trigram. What might be a favorable direction for one person could less supportive for another.
The Difference Between Female and Male Fertility
One general principle for a woman is that if she sleeps with her head pointing to her personal trigram direction, we consider it supportive for conception. The personal trigram direction always associates with relaxation. So, it is interesting to see that this system considers it easier for a woman to conceive if she is sleeping in her most relaxing direction.
For a man, it is totally different. Each person, male and female, has a personal direction considered to be the best for attracting prosperity. And for a man, sleeping with his head toward his major prosperity direction also makes him more fertile. When I learned this, I found it odd and amusing that for a man to produce offspring, it is part of the concept of being wealthy. We know for a fact that men who father many children are not necessarily wealthy, but consider the children themselves as manifestations of a different type of prosperity.
A Different Type of Prosperity
I knew one very successful businessman who beamed when he was telling everyone about the coming of his fourth child. And he said that he had no financial worries because he felt that he had become more successful with each child. Having an attitude like that certainly helps!
If you are a man who wants to know what your combination Major Prosperity/Fertility Sleeping Direction is, I have created a list in this article. It should be noted that for the Personal Trigram Birth Charts, the first day of any given year for the Chinese Solar Calendar begins on February 4th, and not on January 1st. For example, if a man was born in January or February 1st, 2nd, 3rd, in any given year, he is a year older on the Trigram calendar. February 4th is the mid-way point between the December Solstice and the March Equinox. So, it should not be confused with the Chinese Lunar Calendar, which vacillates by weeks from year to year.
Birth Year Shows Proper Sleeping Direction
We consider a man born in January of 1957, for example, as being born in 1956. Or, a man born on February 3, 1961 as being born in 1960.
These Personal Trigrams repeat every nine years perpetually. The sleeping direction refers to the direction one’s head is pointing when laying down.
Males born in 1940, 1949, 1958, 1967, 1976, 1985, 1994 Fertility Sleeping Direction=West
Males born 1941, 1950, 1959, 1968, 1977, 1986, 1995 Fertility Sleeping Direction= Northeast
Males born in 1942, 1951, 1960, 1969, 1978, 1987, 1996 Fertility Sleeping Direction=North

Males born in 1944, 1953, 1962, 1971, 1980, 1989, 1998 Fertility Sleeping Direction=Northeast
Males born in 1945, 1954, 1963, 1972, 1981, 1990 Fertility Sleeping Direction=Southeast
Males born in 1946, 1955, 1964, 1973, 1982, 1991 Fertility Sleeping Direction=East
Males born in 1947, 1956, 1965, 1974, 1983, 1992 Fertility Sleeping Direction=Southwest
Males born in 1948, 1957, 1966, 1975, 1984, 1993 Fertility Sleeping Direction=Northwest
Now, we should note that when we learned this technique from Master Sang, he also winked when he talked about “sleeping” direction. It was hard to get a totally candid answer from him, but I do believe he was referring to the position one lays in while having sex. So, take these suggestions for what they imply as well!
