Compass is must for a Feng Shui practitioner and without it; he is merely practicing interior designing. The Compass or Luo Pan covers all the directions of the house, evaluates the energy in the specific area and calculates the prosperity count of the same. There are eight directions, North, South, East, West, Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, and Southwest. These are indicated on the Luo Pan, as 24 divisions of 15 degrees each. A degree here and there indicates a completely different house type.

Feng Shui compass is available in different sizes and is available for varied reasons. The 4 inch version corresponds to 4 seasons, the 8 inch version is based on the Ba-Gua and the 12 inch version refers to the 12 branches. A compass consists of a number of concentric rings, with a magnetic needle in the center. This is loaded with tons of information regarding Feng Shui. The base of the compass is usually red, which symbolizes auspiciousness in Chinese culture. The color red also keeps the energy around the compass, clear.
