Period 8 sitting NW w/ pool

I was hoping you can help clarify a question. We are looking to buy a new home and found one that is facing SE which is good for period 8 but has a pool in the back yard which would be in the NW sector. I don't think having water in NW would be good and may cancel out or negatively impact the SE forward home for period 8. Should we not even consider this home at all or are there cures we can put in to offset the negative and enhance the positive? Since it is a forward chart for SE facing, I am thinking having water feature in the back of the home in NW would then make it bad or reverse chart overall. We have been only looking for forward chart homes with the right mountain and water stars. Any thoughts you may have would be much appreciated!

For all of you readers out there who don't know what period 8 is, it is a term used in the Flying Star school of feng shui. Nancy, I don't practice Flying Star feng shui, so I would not be comfortable in advising you. However, there are really good books available — that is if you haven't already checked them out. The first is "Flying Star Feng Shui Made Easy" by David Twicken. I have read some of his books and have found them to be extremely helpful. The other book I came across is "Flying Star Feng Shui for Period 8" by Lillian Too. I am less familiar with her work though.

I am sorry that I could not be more helpful.

Many blessings!

"In our deepest moments of struggle, frustration, fear, and confusion, we are being called upon to reach in and touch our hearts. Then, we will know what to do, what to say, how to be. What is right is always in our deepest heart of hearts. It is from the deepest part of our hearts that we are capable of reaching out and touching another human being. It is, after all, one heart touching another heart."
