Feng Shui Element of Wood: What It Means

feng shui wood elementIn December many people of the Christian faith have a tree, which represents the wood element, in a particular space in their living room or family room. Other people may run a fireplace for winter, which combines the elements of fire and wood.

Let's take a look at the Feng Shui wood element and see what it does. In the Feng Shui Ba Gua, the element of wood corresponds with the family corner, which is the left side of a room, home or apartment (when you're standing at the door looking in.) The colors associated with wood are green and blue -- earthy, natural tones but strong tones.

Placing a Christmas tree in the family trigram of the ba gua will strengthen the evergreen as a symbol of family and friends, a place to gather and celebrate.

If you enjoyed the way this trigram of your home was empowered, you may want to place a Feng Shui plant in this corner now that the holidays are over -- perhaps a tree with bright, healthy green leaves and planted in a blue pot. Peace lily plant or Palm plant may be ideal.

Adding the wood element to a space can add stability and also encourage growth and re-birth (again, think of a tree!)

People with Feng Shui Wood Chi
People with a lot of the element wood in their chi tend to be strong, stable forces with great self-confidence. Like a majestic tree, roots stretching toward the sky, they take action on a grand scale. They are likely to launch large businesses or take on large, impactful projects. People with wood chi “think big.”

People governed by wood chi are often balanced by companions with lots of flowing water chi.
