Using star configurations

Translated from here.

In the horoscope the star configurations are very important. They exert a big influence. Their weight and effect is not inferior to the impact and importance of the major stars. There are  two types of star configurations: 吉格 [lucky/favourable] and 凶格 [ominous/inauspicious].

Even if there are star configurations present in the chart, still one has to take into account the stars involved in the configurations and how comfortable they are in the horoscope.

If the stars involved are happy and pleased, a favourable star configuration can effectuate much that is useful and beneficial. If happy stars are involved in an inauspicious star configuration, there may the the instance of 逢凶化吉 féngxiōnghuàjí = to land on one's feet; to turn ill luck into good.

If the stars involved are having a difficult time in the horoscope, lucky star configurations won't be able to bring about a whole lot of good. But the ominous configurations will be capable of much that is baleful and calamitous.

One should be mindful of the fact that favourable configurations [吉格] ...[?], and ominous star configurations [凶格] ...[?].
