You can plot manually for the 9 Grid Flying Stars Chart or using the Flying Stars Calculator.

Divide your house into nine sectors equally as shown in the chart. Each square representing the palace of the sector. Every palace in each sector has a different effect of the house representing it. Each star is represented by the I Ching trigram and will be written in the palace. The concept of Flying Stars is the application of compass direction where the chart is shown as South on the top of the grid. You need to take note that the chart is always having the South as the top of the grid unlike the world map showing North at the top.
