Feng Shui Earth Luck 2023 - Yin Water Rabbit

Yin Water Rabbit - Feng Shui Earth Luck

Earth Luck is about the annual Feng Shui Qi.
It involves energy and flying stars visiting a space or location such as a home, a shop, or an office.

Normally the New Feng Shui Qi starts on the 4th of February.

Each year, we consider the Feng Shui Sheng Qi (生氣good energy) and Sha Qi (煞氣bad energy) and their interaction with the various sectors on the premises. Feng Shui Earth Luck deals with these yearly Feng Shui energy.

It is a two-step process:

  1. First, we need to mitigate the Feng Shui Sha Qi (Bad Energy).
  2. Then we activate the Feng Shui Sheng Qi where is possible.

If you have followed my Feng Shui Earth Luck articles in the past years, you may know that each year, there are three big Sha Qi and three lucky Sheng Qi. The star's interaction will set the foundation regardless of the facing and sitting of the house or an office. Some years, Sha Qi overlaps and creates bigger Sha Qi. And vice versa, the Sheng Qi can overlap in some years too.

Note - There are also a couple of medium Sha Qi rotating each year in a house or office.

I will show you some Feng Shui methods to deal with these Feng shui Sha Qi and Sheng Qi in the year of the Yin Water Rabbit 2023.

Determine the Location

Firstly, we need to know where the Sheng Qi and Sha Qi are located in the year of the Yin Water Rabbit 2023.

  1. The Tai Sui (Grand Duke) is active in the year of the Rabbit. It is located in the East or Mao (卯) sector in the Feng Shui compass. (Mao卯is in between 82.50° to 97.50° measure from the center of the house. All other sectors and areas mentioned below are measured from the center of the house or your office.)
  2. The San Sha (三煞the 3-killings) arrives at the West (The Dui 兌Gua 247.5°- 292.5°). It covers a big area. The San Sha is powerful and unfavorable.
  3. The Five Yellow. It landed in the North West. (The Qian 乾 Gua, 292.5° – 337.5°)
  4. The power, traveling and promotion star number 6 flies to the West sector. (The Dui 兌Gua 247.5°- 292.5°)
  5. The money and prosperity star number 8 is located in the South sector (Li 離 Gua 157.5°-202.5°)
  6. The romance, happiness star number 9 comes to North (Kan 坎 Gua 337.5°- 22.5°)
  7. The Wu Ji Sha (戊己煞) is located at the South Wu 午(Horse 172.5°- 187.5°) and Southwest Wei 未 (Goat 202.5° - 217.5°)
  8. The Sui Poh Sha(歲破), is on the opposite side of the Tai Sui Mao 卯 Rabbit. It is located at You 酉 You (Rooster 262.5°-277.5°)

Please note:

Some sectors are bigger and cover 45 degrees. Some sectors only cover 15 degrees.

The Sui Poh Sha(歲破) and the San Sha are both located in the You 酉 Rooster sector, so the Rooster sector has double Sha Qi there in 2023.

Below is the Earth Luck Feng Shui diagram for 2023. It is different from the normal map. In this Feng Shui map, the top is south, and the bottom is north.


A classical Feng Shui saying: “大煞宜避, 中煞可制, 小煞不理!”

Direction translation to this saying: “Avoid the big Sha. Cure the medium Sha. Ignore the tiny Sha.”

The first rule to deal with the Sha Qi is: “Respect them. DO NOT disturb them or activate them in their respective areas”.

Do not DISTURB the Sha Qi sectors. Therefore, “Move Earth,” which means digging ground or renovating the sectors inside and outside of your house, is prohibited. (Unless you are not living in the house when your house is being renovated.)

Yearly, Sha Qi is like a sleeping tiger. It will be fine without any disturbance. With strong vibration, the tiger will wake up from sleep, and if you are nearby, it will hurt you.


The Tai Sui is also known as The Grand Duke or The Yearly King.

Tai Sui can be good and bad depending on the techniques applied to activate it.

Measured from the center of your house, the Tai Sui locates in the East sector Mao (卯82.50° to 97.50°) Rabbit area in the year of the Yin Water-Rabbit. It is the yearly King sector. If you don’t know how to measure the center of your house, particularly with an irregular shape floor plan, you can watch my video here.

In traditional Feng Shui, there is a way to activate the Tai Sui to make the yearly King your friend, and he can help achieve your goal quicker if the house or office Feng Shui settings support this. You need a classically trained professional Feng Shui Master to help to achieve it. Don’t do it yourself. If incorrectly activated, it brings double harm.

But first of all, we must respect Tai Sui. We do not disturb the Tai Sui sector of the year.

In your house or office, if the main entrance locates in the East Mao 卯 Rabbit sector, do not disturb the area both inside and outside, such as moving earth or drilling. If activated, it may bring issues to the legs, foot, gall bladder, liver, hair loss, or even traffic accidents.

The Mao Rabbit sector is within the Zhen Gua area (震卦). It is the eldest son’s sector or related male age between 30 to 59 years old. Tai Sui relates to our health and emotion.

The Rabbit sector also relates to people born in the year of the Rabbit (1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011……).

If the main entrance of your house or office is located at the Mao 卯Rabbit sector, please keep this Tai Sui area as quiet as possible. Don’t slam the door. Make sure to open and close the door gently at all times. This applies to all the Sha Qi sectors too.

To reduce the impact of the Tai Sui in the year of the Rabbit (4 Feb 2023 – 3 Feb 2024), place a round metal object in the Rabbit sector. The round metal object can be a vase, plate, or round metal cylinder.

The Zhen Gua sector has the flying star number #2 visiting in the year of the Rabbit.

The number #2 star means health issues. So need to take care of your legs, feet, gall bladder, liver, or hair loss issues.


In the year of the Yin Water Rabbit 2023, the Feng Shui Sha Qi - The San Sha 三煞 3-killings (Three lots of Sha Qi) lands at the You 酉 Rooster, the Dui 兌 Gua (247.5°-292.5°) area. It covers the whole Dui 兌Gua area.

The 3-killing or San Sha Qi represents lawsuits, career problems, gossip, theft, robbery, and arguments.

The Dui Gua is the youngest daughter’s sector. It represents the metal system of our body, such as the respiratory system, lungs, throat, thyroid, and large intestine.

The youngest daughter or age under 19 years old or any person born in the year of the Rooster (1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005…) needs to take care of the above-mentioned areas.

Do not disturb the 3-Killings Sha in the West sector, particularly the You 酉Rooster sector. It is also the Sui Poh Sha sector. Once it is disturbed, it brings double harm.

On the global Feng Shui scale, the Three-Killing Sha lands at West. West in the world represents the European countries. There will be issues in western Europe in 2023. If you have business there, make sure you plan ahead.

To minimize the bad feng shui effects of the Three-Killings Sha in your house and office, in the West sector You 酉 Rooster sector, place a round black vase filled with 80% full of clear water. Change the water every 2-3 weeks.


The 5-Yellow Sha represents misfortune, obstacles, and sickness.
The 5-Yellow Sha comes to the Qian乾 Gua (292.5° – 337.5°) area.

The Qian Qua belongs to the head of the house or a man over 60 years old.

If you have a door in this sector, make sure you close it gently when passing through. If this sector is activated, it brings misfortune, obstacles, and sickness. Pay attention to the respiratory system, bone, heart, and brain.

To reduce the effect of the 5-Yellow Sha Qi, at the Qian (Northwest) sector of your house, you can place a round shape, black vase filled with 80% full of water. (Same treatment as the You Sector)



The annual flying star #8 represents wealth and prosperity and is located in the South sector, the Li 離 Gua (157.5°-202.5°) area of the house in the year of Rabbit.

If the South sector is your main door, please use this door more, as your wealth in 2023 will be fantastic.

To bring in more wealth, you can place a water feature or fish tank to further activate the area.


The annual flying star number #9 means romance and happy events such as weddings, pregnancy, or giving birth are coming to the North sector, the Kan 坎 Gua (337.5°- 22.5°) of the house.

The annual star #9 can also increase “people luck,” meaning if it is activated correctly, it brings opportunities for you to meet more people. It is a very good star for the singles.

On the other hand, it may bring a third person for married couples.

If used correctly, the #9 star is a good star for increasing “People Luck”.

Depending on the space of the area in the north sector of your house, you can activate the sector by placing a mini humidifier, de-humidifier, and a tall floor lamp and turn on most of the time.


The Power Star #6 also is known as the promotion and traveling star, the annual star #6 comes to the West, Dui 兌 Gua (247.5°-292.5) of the house.

As mentioned above that the Sui Poh and The San Sha are located at the You 酉 Rooster Sector. It is NOT suggested to activate the annual flying star #6.


The Sui Poh Sha is opposite the Tai Sui sector. It is located at You (酉 Rooster 232.5°- 247.5°) in the west sector.

The Wu Ji Sha (戊己煞) is located at the South Wu (午Horse 172.5°- 187.5°) and South-South-west Wei 未 Goat (202.5° - 217.5°) sector.

For both Sui Poh and the Wu Ji Sha areas, “Move Earth” or “Digging” is prohibited. If the areas are disturbed, it brings health issues such as eyes, hearts, and blood circulation to a female person 40-55 years old or someone born in the year of the Horse (1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002) or Goat (1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003).


The above information summarizes the important areas for your house and office as each house and office differs. The occupants have different animal signs. Lots can be done to activate the good energy for a particular person.

If you are unsure what you are doing, you can always contact a Feng Shui Master near you for an annual Feng Shui update.

If you want to know more about what the Yin water Rabbit year holds for you, please read my Man Luck animal signs luck article.

All the best and have a prosperous Year of the Yin Water Rabbit in 2023.

Remember, Good Feng Shui brings good luck to you.

2023 Yin Water Rabbit – Heaven Luck Forecasts

2023 Yin Water Rabbit – Heaven Luck Forecasts


When it comes to yearly predictions, most Feng Shui Masters use the period in early Spring to construct a Bazi or Four Pillars Chart to predict the coming year’s events.

In their predictions, some Feng Shui Masters will use the Qi Men Dun Jia (QMDJ) or I-Ching divination.

Different Feng Shui Masters use different methods.

I was taught to use the JiaZi (甲子) cycle or sexagenary cycle, also known as the Stems-and-Branches system. It is a cycle of sixty terms used for telling time in the old days.

Yearly predictions, there are three layers to look into. They are the:

  1. Heaven Luck,
  2. Earth Luck (or Feng Shui) and
  3. Man luck (Animal Sign Luck)

For this year's predictions, the elements of the Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch of the year are used.

Yearly predictions can be useful information for someone to make informed decisions. However, to be honest, it is not 100% accurate. You cannot rely on these annual predictions alone. Further analysis of the individual circumstances is required to achieve a more accurate picture. 

2023, in JiaZi cycle, is the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit year.

The year of the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit starts on the 4th of February, 2023. However, the Heaven energy surfaces from the winter solstice, which is on the 22nd of December 2022.


Heaven Luck is to predict major world events, weather, and natural disasters or acts of God. So people can prepare well for it. For example, people can increase their insurance premiums in the areas that may affect them. Or even strengthen their rooftops.

In Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui all start from the elements of the Heavenly Stem and the Earthly Branches.

Identifying the Key Elements

The Heavenly Stem (HS) for 2023 is GUI (癸), and GUI is the Yin Water element.

Yin Water GUI (癸) represents drizzles and dew. It combines with Wu (戊).

The Earthly Branch is Mao (卯). Mao is purely a Wood element. There is no hidden stems in Mao.

The Mao (卯) known as:

  1. The wood element is the prosperity of the water combination.
  2. Mao (卯) is one of the peach blossom stars.
  3. The Mao (卯) is represented by the animal sign RABBIT. That is why it is called the Year of the Rabbit.

To be exact, the Stem and Branch in 2023 add up together, making the year Yin Water Wood-Rabbit year.

In classical feng shui, the way of arranging the Heavenly Stem (HS) & Earthly Branch (EB), is placing the HS on top of the EB.

GUI (癸) is Yin Water element on top.
Mao (卯) is Yin Wood element underneath.

Focusing on 2023 Elements

The Melodic element for 2023 is Metal. (壬寅癸卯金箔金).

Metal is finance, banking insurance, and tangible metal, such as iron, silver, and gold.

In Feng Shui annual flying star, the Number #4 star comes to the Centre. The #4 star at the Central palace shows the most eye-catching issue. It relates to academics, education, study, culture, love affairs, and sex scandals.

The number of Dragons producing water is only 1. It will be a dry and possibly even drought year in 2023.

With the above information, we can foresee the following issues in the year of the Yin Water-Rabbit.

  1. In the year of the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit element year, the top level (Water) and bottom level (Wood) is in a producing or enhancing cycle. There is no conflict relationship between the top and bottom levels. It looks like the bottom level will be supported by whatever the top level’s decisions.
  2. 2023 is the year of the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit. It is Yin Water and Wood element year. The water element represents wisdom, and the Wood element represents Kindness. Top-levels should handle issues wisely and kindly to develop brighter solutions and promote a more peaceful world.
  3. Yin Water is drizzle and dew. There will be fewer water issues compared with 2022. We can see in some areas, and there will be drought. There is only one dragon producing water. In 2022 there were 8 dragons producing water. That was why 2022 had many water issues.
  4. Mao (卯) is the peach blossom star. Peach blossom star generally is good for the entertainment, and sex industries.
  5. Mao (卯) is the peach blossom star also means love affair, sex scandals… more and more such incidents like illicit romance, sex scandals, and sexual affairs will be shown on the news.
  6. Mao (卯) is the academic star of the GUI (癸), so the schools, education sectors, literature, art, and cultural development will benefit. More and more students return to campus.
  7. GUI (癸) and Mao (卯) are both Yin elements. Yin is inside, or the dark side, and slow. It is not opened and not easily seen. Conspiracies, secretive, back stabbings, and assassinations in the year's second half.
  8. Yin Water GUI(癸) enhances YIN Wood Mao(卯) Rabbit, The Wood element becomes strong, and it can weaken the Earth element. However, unlike in 2022, Yang Wood had a stronger impact. This year 2023, It can still be disasters related to Earth elements, house prices, earthquakes, landslides, and mine incidents. However, due to the Yin element, it will be just slow and moderate. It is not deep down. It is just below the earth's surface.
  9. Referring to #8 above, logical thinking, below the earth's surface, can be tunnels. Vehicle tunnels, train tunnels, pedestrian tunnels, or illegal smuggling tunnels, there are bigger issues in 2023.
  10. Mao (卯) is in the East direction, the Zhen Gua sector, so it can also be seen as cars, carriages (Vehicles). There will be more accidents about cars and carriages in the news in 2023, inside tunnels.
  11. Referring to #10 above, on the hand, Yin Water GUI(癸) is on top of the Zhen Gua (Car). The image looks like a “water car.” It seems the Hydro Powered car will get more attention.
  12. Mao (卯) Rabbit and You (酉) Rooster are in a clashing relationship. Companies in the poultry business, especially chickens, companies with Rooster logos will experience a strong impact in 2023.
  13. Poultry farming (Particularly Chickens, eggs sectors) will face hardship.
  14. Mao (卯) Rabbit and You (酉) Rooster are in a clashing relationship. The rooster sector is Europe area. Europe will experience unease and unstable. If you have business there, make sure you plan ahead.
  15. Mao (卯) is the Nobleman star to the GUI (癸). Nobleman means Godsend helper. Nobleman often helps someone overcome their difficulties. Particularly, in 2023 is for someone born in the year with the last digit 2 or 3. (1952, 1953, 1962, 1963, 1972, 1974, 1982, 1983, 1992, 1993….)
  16. Mao (卯) Rabbit is the Wood element. It also represents nerve systems (Head), hair, and large intestine. We can see more issues in these areas. Pay attention to your diet. Start your mediation today.
  17. (I keep this one from my last year's prediction) YIN (寅) Tiger wood is the Lung Meridian line in acupuncture. The lung issue problem (Covid-19) is still not completely going away in 2022. The problem Covid-19 should be subsided from August 2022 and closed its chapter by early 2023.
  18. In the year of the Yin Water Rabbit, the annual flying star #4 flies to the center palace. The number 4 symbolizes culture, art, academics, education, love affair or even sex scandals. It matches Mao's (卯) Rabbit energy.


GUI(癸) Water element enhances MAO (卯) Rabbit Wood element.

In general, the share market will be gradually going in the positive direction, getting better from the second half of the year, As the wood element represents growth and the Fire Element represents flourishing. The Fire elements years are coming up in 2025, 2026, and 2027.

However, if you are in the share market speculating, please pay extra attention to these four months, particularly for individuals who partake in high-risk trading.

Be very careful in March, June, September, and December in 2022. Due to the Solar and Lunar calculation difference, be informed that.

March means from 6th March to 5th April 2023

June means from 6th June to 7th July 2023

September means 8th September to 8th Oct 2023.

November means 7th December 2023 to 5th January 2024

THE MELODIC ELEMENT 2022 & 2023 IS THIN METAL. 壬寅癸卯金箔金 (thin gold sheet)

The Melodic element is a “Thin gold Sheet” (金箔金) for 2022, 2023. The Melodic element stays the same every two years.

From a melodic element point of view, a “Thin Gold Sheet” relates to Metals or precious metals. Rare earth, lithium, nickel, copper, cobalt, and so on will become more in demand, and prices will go up.

“Thin gold Sheet” (金箔金), Metal element controls Wood element in the year of the Rabbit, Wood element will be hurt and results in more deforestation or environmental issues.


The annual Feng Shui flying star number 4 flies to the center palace.

The flying star number 4 represents culture, art, academics, education, love affair, or even sex scandals.

The center palace is the globe's center or the most eye-catching issue. More reports will be on the issues mentioned above related to flying star number 4.

How to reduce or mitigate the annual flying stars impact, please read my 2023 Year of the Yin Water Rabbit article - The Earth Luck.


The number of dragons producing water is 1. It will be a dry year in 2023, and in some areas, we will start to see drought.


In short, in the YIN Water Wood-Rabbit year, the yearly elements (Water and Wood), the melodic element (metal), and the annual flying stars Qi at the center (Earth). They are producing different outcomes in different layers/sectors.

Heaven Luck cycle is out of our control. We cannot control it. What we can do is prepare ourselves, set up and activate the good yearly feng shui qi for the house we live in and the office we work in.

There are two other articles, the Earth Luck and Man Luck predictions, to address the Feng Shui Qi of a location and personal fortune, 12 animal signs’ luck. I suggest you read them.

Happy new year and have a great year of the Yin Water Rabbit 2023.

Positive Feng Shui for Your Home Office with Windows

The key points for Home Office Layouts with Windows are: 

Feng Shui Office Layout with Window

Before we begin:

It is important to understand that the information in this article is general in nature and does not consider your circumstances. To truly feel the benefits of Feng Shui, I urge a full personal audit should be undertaken to include all factors for proper recommendations for encouraging positive Qi. For a full Feng Shui audit, complete this short form HERE

Home Office Feng Shui - in the Modern World

Life has changed in so many ways since the pandemic. Masks are the norm, social distancing, and most notably, where we work - possibly permanently. 

We are now working away from the traditional office model and conducting business online. And with that, we've had to adapt to creating working spaces in the home. 

Yes, living spaces had home offices in the past. However, these were rooms where we may have completed our finances or written a few personal emails. Since the pandemic, these spaces have become more functional, and we spend more of our day in them. This is why it is essential to create a fruitful space that promotes positive Qi and is the exact focus of this article, how to optimize a feng shui office layout with a window. 

Feng Shui Home Office Layout (with window) 

There are a few guidelines that should be considered when setting up the layout of your home office. Most notably, the desk and how it interacts with the other elements in the space. 

Here are a few general rules to follow when establishing your home office layout. 

Feng Shui Home Office with Window

A Solid Foundation

When deciding upon the orientation of your desk, ensure your back is facing a solid wall. Walls with windows or doors are not solid walls. A window behind a desk is an opening that invites positive Qi to exit out of the room. Something that should be discouraged.

Open to Opportunities 

At the same time, facing your back to the home office door should also be avoided. The entrance door is also an opening whereby energy flows in and out of your working space. 

However, the reason is slightly different (compared to windows). The office door is where opportunities enter, and if you have your back facing the door, you will not recognize when opportunities are presented to you. A more optimal position is when sitting at your desk, you can see the office door when you look up, but not directly in line with the door. This way, you are ready to receive any opportunity that arrives. 

Center of Attention

Ideally, your desk should be placed at the center of the office. This allows the energy to flow around you. Again, when sitting at your desk, it is crucial to follow the above two rules regarding solid walls and doors. 

Other Considerations

The principles to determine desk placement in a home office, are very similar to the rules that apply to bed placement in your bedroom.

Fortunately, I have recorded a video describing bed placement rules (below) on my YouTube channel.

You can learn the rules for bed placement (which also apply to desk placement) in my video HERE.

Other Ways To Optimize Your Home Office

Now that we have discussed your desk's layout and position let's turn our attention to other aspects of your home office. 

Optimize Your Home Office with Feng Shui

Snake Plants

In my article about Snake Plants and Feng Shui, you may recall that the vertical growth pattern of the snake plant promotes the Yang Wood element (wood energy). Placing a snake plant in your home office will foster a sense of positivity and personal growth. 

In addition, positioning a snake plant in a room where you perform a lot of work will promote concentration and increase productivity.

Clutter Free Desk

Maintain an organized and clutter-free desk while you work. Too much clutter disrupts the flow of energy in your home office and reflects an unfocused mindset. 

At the end of each day, clean your desk to create a sense of calm and clarity for the next time you sit down to work. Close the home office door once you have finished for the day. 

Choose the Right Chair

Not only is your office chair important for comfort and proper posture (like ergonomic chairs). It can also help to block the negative flow of energy.

With reference to the earlier rule of having a solid foundation behind your chair. In instances where you find it challenging to achieve a harmonious layout, for example, the office door and window are on opposing walls. You can try installing a "block" to prevent the exit of Qi out the window by choosing to sit in a high-back chair. This way, you can still be open to opportunities and prevent the loss of positive Qi out the window.


Like in all living spaces, elements play a role in the flow of energy. 

By including water elements in your working space, you can promote calmness, flow, and abundance to your space. At the same time, metal elements will encourage mental sharpness and precision work. 

At the same time, the incorrect elements can harm your energy. Fire elements, like candles and items that are colored red, tend to attract confusion and chaos into the space. I think we can agree our work life is best left without these two effects. 

Feng Shui Office Layout with Windows - Closing Thoughts

With the ever-increasing need for a home office in our homes, it is vital to set aside some time to consider the layout using Feng Shui principles. There are particular guidelines to follow regarding the placement of your desk in the office space. You can also introduce other Feng Shui elements to optimize your working space, such as plant life and other forms.

Are Snake Plants Good for Feng Shui? 

There are many ways to promote good energy and bad energy in your house. Understanding how these forms and elements interact in your living space will give you a better appreciation of how to manipulate the flow of energy. 

Snake plant Feng Shui

One such form is the snake plant. Now, there are mixed feelings about the snake plant in the Feng Shui space. Some claim it is lucky and encourage the inclusion of this unique plant in homes. While other Feng Shui practitioners believe the plant encourages the formation of negative energy, as the tips of the leaves represent poison arrows. 

In this article I will explore this interesting form and give you my observations regarding its role in Feng Shui. 

What are Snake Plants?

Before we dive into the impact on Qi, let's explore what a snake plant is.

Snake plant, otherwise known as mother-in-law's tongue is a succulent plant that is a very popular houseplant. The reason it is popular is that it is very easy to care for, and is rather low maintenance. These two attributes make it especially popular for beginners or time-poor individuals who want to add elements into their house. 

It is a rather unique looking plant that has large thick, meaty leaves that grow vertically. The most common snake plant is the Sansevieria Trifasciata, which is a beautiful specimen that can grow up to 4 feet tall. 

Here is a picture of a snake plant for reference. 

What is the Role of Snake Plants in Feng Shui? 

Like all items in a house, the snake plant is a form that can impact the flow of Qi in a living space. Let's investigate the good and bad of the snake plant. 

Negatives of Snake Plants in Feng Shui

As you can see from the image above, the foliage is very sharp and pointy - which can be very abrasive in the Feng Shui interpretation. 

Some believe the points at each end of the leaf represents the poison arrows - something we try to avoid in Feng Shui. In fact, anything sharp that comes to a point can generate negative energy, which is why we try to avoid forms like cacti that have spines pointing in every direction. 

If you want to include a living plant in your home, most Feng Shui masters recommend plants that have round leaves, like jade plants and money trees. The round foliage avoids any sharp edges, which avoids the poison arrows' predicament, and the small round leaves encourage wealth energy. 

Here is a picture demonstrating my point about the leaf shape - the leaves almost look like little coins. 

Positives of Snake Plants in Feng Shui

I'd like to challenge this mindset of poison arrows, by using them to our advantage. Rather than shying away from having snake plants in our home, why don't we use their pointed leaves for protection?

All we need to know is how to position the snake plant so that it will benefit us, rather than harm our Qi. 

By locating the snake plant at points in the house where we want to block or prevent the entry of negative energy, we can use the plant as protection. I like to place large snake plants to face forms around the house that may be unfavorably pointing at the space in question. 

Some practitioners also consider the fact that the leaves grow pointing upwards as a positive sign. It promotes the yang wood element (or wood energy) which helps personal growth and positivity.  

How to Position a Snake Plant in Your Home

Like I said before, I like to use snake plants as a protective form against negative energy. However, in order to identify these positions, you will need an audit of the living space. If you are interested in obtaining a personal consultation for your home, please use the contact form HERE.

The Best Feng Shui Front Door Plants for Positive Qi

Did you know houseplants not only look good and help to clean our air, but according to people who practice Feng Shui, they can also help to attract positive energy into the house?  

Some feng shui masters believe placing the right plant next to the front door can help to attract positive Qi into your home. However, there are some considerations that need to be made when choosing the right plant for your home entrance. 

In this article I will be discussing the following:

Feng Shui Benefits of Plants at the Front Door?

In Feng Shui, one of the key focal points is the front door and surrounding area.

This includes the forms surrounding the door that will encourage (or sometimes prevent) energy from entering your home.  Not only do you consider the front door forms with respect to Qi, it is also the point at which you invite people in and/or keep out of your home (such as intruders or burglars).

Houseplants belong to these forms that many consider when auditing the front door space. Potted plants not only contribute to the flow of energy. They also create a sense of welcoming and a pleasing aesthetic.

Many some Feng Shui masters consider placing two potted plants on either side of the front door to help diffuse any potential negative Qi that is directed at the front door.  

In Feng Shui, plants can also represent life energy, restoration, vitality and growth, which are common energies that many homeowners want to attract to their home.  

Considerations When Placing Plants at the Front Door?

Even though indoor plants are generally considered positive for Feng Shui, choosing the wrong plant can interfere with the incoming Qi - especially if it is placed incorrectly. 

As beautiful as lush plants with big foliage are to look at, they can obstruct the entrance. Unfortunately, this can produce the opposite effect of welcoming positive energy into the home. Instead, defecting it away from the home, and conflicting with the Feng Shui goals of the homeowner. 

It is for this reason, I recommend smaller potted plants which I will discuss more about in the next section. 

Best Feng Shui Front Door Plants 

Potted Orchids

Orchids are a wonderful addition to any home entrance, with their beautiful tall flowers and sprawling foliage. They are relatively low maintenance plants that still adhere to good Feng Shui principles, without being too obtrusive. 

There are some special care requirements for orchids, as they aren't your typical indoor plant that grows in soil. Orchids use aerial roots to absorb moisture, and therefore require a soilless medium to grow, such as a combination of sphagnum moss and orchid bark. 

However, once you understand the basics, orchids are easy to care for and will capture the attention of any one entering your home. 

Lucky Bamboo

You have probably seen Lucky Bamboo being sold in your local nursery or even shopping center. They are one of my favorite indoor plants, because they are so easy to care for and are perfect for anyone who is new to the world of houseplants. They grow completely hydroponically (in water), and only require the changing of water every few weeks to maintain a healthy and vibrant plant. 

In addition to being low maintenance, they can grow in darker positions in the home, which is perfect for some, as some front entrances have limited light.

Jade Plant

Another favorite of mine are jade plants, which are part of the succulent family. They have thick meaty leaves that are used for the plants' water storage. This means they are relatively drought tolerant and can handle a bit of neglect from their owners - perfect for those that have busy lives. 

Jade plants, like most other succulents, are relatively slow growers. However, if given the right conditions, they can still put on substantial growth in one season, which means you can shape them nicely to the aesthetics that you prefer.

Snake Plant

Another member of the succulent family is the snake plant. These succulents are perfect for front doors because they have a vertical growing pattern with their elongated sword shaped leaves. Being a succulent, they have low water requirements, and can thrive when given the right amount of attention. 

Many snake plants are variegated, which means they have beautiful coloration on their leaves with streaks of yellow running along the length of the leaves. It makes for a spectacular sight when your door is accompanied by snake plants on either side. 

Final Thoughts on Feng Shui Front Door Plants

Creating the right space for your front door is important so that you attract the right kind of energy into your home. 

Using houseplants to create a warm and welcoming space is one of the best ways of adding to your front entrance. Not only for Feng Shui, but also for your guests and your own sense of well being.
