Fang Shui (Feng Shui): The Western Bagua Explained

Tony, Fang Shui Master

Today is March 21st, the day after the Spring Equinox.  This is a second posting, at my alpha female’s request, about fang shui.  She thought I was lounging around too much, which actually is a good indication that our domicile has good Fang Shui for me.  As I mentioned in the first article, I am a Fang Shui expert.  Fang Shui, or Feng Shui as the humans call it, is the art of balancing the energy, or chi, in a room or location.  One of the tools that Western Fang Shui utilizes is what is referred to as a Bagua.  The Bagua is an octagonal shaped grid which contains symbols of the I-ching, an ancient oracle on which Fang Shui is based.  Understanding the Bagua for your home can help you attract wealth, prosperity, peace, friendships, etc into your life.  Western School Bagua is really easy to use, much more so than using a compass.  All you need is a floor plan of your home or office.  There are 9 areas, or grids that are addressed in the Bagua.  And rather than taking compass measurements, you align the lower wall with the front door at the bottom of the grid, which contains the first 3 items in the following:

Bagua Grid
  • Personal Growth and Cultivation
  • Career/Path in Life
  • Helpful people/blessings
  • Health/Family
  • Center/Heart/yin and yang
  • Children/Creativity
  • Prosperity/Abundance
  • Fame/Reputation
  • Love/Marriage

Once you have the Bagua Map Drawn for your space, then you will be able to evaluate and make positive changes to bring in the energy you desire.  And if you don’t have the best space layout for bringing in those areas, then there are Fang Shui fixes that can be used in the space to balance the energy.  But that is for another blog.  It’s time for another nap.
