Feng Shui and Chandeliers

The 8 important things to know about Feng Shui and Chandeliers

Chandeliers enhance dining

If you’ve ever noticed Chinese guests, they often gather around the table in large groups. The chandeliers bring excellent chi into the restaurant and stimulate relationship chi with the guests. As you can see, eating and enjoying relationships with others go hand in hand in Chinese society, and chandeliers symbolise this symbiotic relationship.

The crystal’s earth energy and energising light (fire that also cooks food) are excellent enhancers in any dining room.

Chandeliers raise Chi

Without question, light is one of the most promising Feng Shui activators. It is doubled and tripled as this light is reflected in a sparkling crystal chandelier. The prisms of the chandelier crystals cast off rainbows that bring particularly wonderful chi. Crystals represent the purest and highest form of energy on earth, which is also a source of abundance.

Chandeliers as a remedy

Since chandeliers are earth energy, they are great as a remedy for issues like the stove and sink opposing each other. When this happens there is a conflict between man and woman, represented by the clash between fire and water. However, the earth energy of the chandelier can act as a mediator and settle the dispute between the two clashing energies.

Chandeliers welcome Chi

A wonderful way to draw chi into your home is by adding a chandelier. Placed in a foyer or near the front door, the beautiful energy of the illuminated crystals can draw beautiful chi energy into the entryway of your home.

Chandeliers help the lady of the house

Women are symbolised by the element of earth and “illuminated earth” like a chandelier brings wonderful happiness to the woman of the home and of marriage. It also improves the relationships and love happiness of all household members.

Chandeliers elevate bedroom energies

If your room is dark or dull, a chandelier will easily bring out the chi of the room. Be sure to hang a chandelier over the bed as it is not recommended. If so, place a canopy over the bed or use a smaller flush mount style here.

Avoid walking under large chandeliers

Because of their oppressive earth energy, it is best to use chandeliers that aren’t too big or heavy if they’re in a location where they’ll be walked on. Use a smaller chandelier if you want someone to walk underneath.

Activate critical corners

Chandeliers are wonderful anywhere in the home, but they’re especially helpful in certain corners. Use chandeliers in the west and northwest corners, where their light and earth energies benefit the children and men of the home, in the northeast and southwest where their energies foster relationships and create family harmony, and in the south, to bring wealth, success, and material bring benefits.

Flying Stars July 2022

Dominant Heavenly Star Brings General Improvement

NEW OPPORTUNITIES brought by #6 in the center
AUSPICIOUS WHITE STARS 1,6,8 in South, Center & West
LUCKIEST SECTORS – NE (Future Prosperity) & SOUTH (Sum of-Ten)
But Mother & Father working together brings Sum-of Ten Completion Luck

July’s Flying Star chart totals look better than last month, largely due to the dominance of the Heaven Star in the center of the chart. This generally brings new opportunities, better instincts and mentoring luck to everyone. The month will bring some turning points. Those who have been working on new ideas may find that they are finally moving and gaining momentum.

East-West is the lucky axis of the month, suggesting that homes and buildings aligned this way are lucky, especially in areas related to making money and making friends. The east hosts the monthly relationship star, while the west welcomes the arrival of the monthly prosperity star.

The sectors that enjoy the specials are the South (Sum-of-Ten Luck), which brings the luck of accomplishment, and the NE (with the #9 magnification and the swing star).

Danger sectors are SE (Misfortune Star #5) and NW (Loss Star #7). The North, meanwhile, has Illness Star #2 and the SW is home to Quarrelsome Star #3. Remedial action here.



The monthly 5 Yellow afflicts the SE this month, bringing misfortune, sickness and accidents. This unlucky star particularly affects the young females of the house.


This powerful combination of stars brings support on all fronts. The stars here create the kind of chi that attracts good fortune of the kind that aids career progress and growth in business.


The #3 star, coupled with the clash of elements here results in much conflict and discord for the occupants of this sector. Also affects Sheep and Monkey born, and women. These energies bring gossip, arguments and conflict that could lead in the worst case to serious legal entanglements.


The arrival of the #4 Romance and Literary Star here makes this sector beneficial for those with academic and literary pursuits, and those in the field of communication.


The heavenly star here brings unexpected windfalls and benefactors to all this month. This also holds out more promise when it comes to speculative luck. Instincts hold more sway, and those who “activate”, backed of course with good background research, can enjoy meaningful returns.


The monthly prosperity star brings money luck to homes with main doors facing this direction.


The flying stars in the NE this month bring a lot of good fortune luck to this sector! The combination indicates monetary gains for those in business, and career promotion luck for those in employment.


The #2 star here brings health risks, with particular risks to the kidneys.


The #7 being supported by the annual star causes an excess of metal energies. As this incoming star becomes strong, it brings unexpected expenses and threat of physical injury. Patriarchs and leaders especially need to take care, as the NW is the sector of the Patriarch.


Choose the colours based on the corner

Choose colours based on the corner your bedroom is in

This is another option to use in your Feng Shui colour box: select by direction. Check out the instructions below to choose a colour that supports the corner your bedroom is in.

Choosing a harmonised or supportive colour will allow your bedroom to work with the naturally present Feng Shui energy, helping to create a more supportive and healthy environment.


Harmonised colours: black, blue, turquoise, lavender, purple

Supporting Colours: White, Gray, Gold, Silver

Winning colours: brown, tan, beige, yellow, green, terracotta

Northeast, Central and Southwest

Harmonised colours: yellow, ocher, light brown, taupe, lilac, lavender

Supporting colours: terracotta, red, pink, burgundy, orange

Winning Colours: Gray, White, Green, Brown

east and southeast

Harmonised colours: brown, green

Supporting Colours: Black, Blue, Turquoise, Lavender, Purple

Defeat colours: red, grey, white


Harmonised colours: red, pink, burgundy, bright orange

Supporting Colours: Brown, Green, Purple

Defeating colours: blue, black

west and northwest

Harmonised colours: white, grey, gold, silver

Supporting Colours: Tan, Ivory, Yellow, Taupe, Ocher, Plum, Purple, Lavender

Defeat colours: blue, black, red

First choose harmonised and supporting colours.

By choosing a harmonious or supportive colour, you help create harmony in the corner of your home where your bedroom is located. This supports your health and well-being, because the colour and the elements are in harmony.

The reverse is also true, and that’s why you should avoid foiling colours.

For example, a southwest bedroom should not be painted green because the green wood colour weakens the earth energy of the southwest corner.

When you are asleep you are most vulnerable to the energies around you. If a bedroom doesn’t have coordinated colours, you might find yourself struggling.

In addition, you may find that your income is suffering, you are not recovering well, you may have health problems, or your relationship is strained and difficult.

Choose the right colour to ensure a restful night’s sleep, a recharged relationship – or attract a new one – and protect your health and wealth. This helps you and your home work in harmony with the energies of your bedroom for better rest and better support in life.

Feng Shui colour for the bedroom

One of the most common questions in Feng Shui is what colour to paint a bedroom. 

Colours that are soft, muted, and easy on the eyes are bright and energetic colours, such as B. Crimson or bright blue, always preferable.

Think of the calming quality of the colours you choose, whether it’s for the paint on your walls or your bedding.

If kelly green is one of your favourite shades, consider a light version of that colour on a paint colour stripe, e.g. B.Mint.

Pale or pastel tones are one way to keep light colours from being too bold in your bedroom.

Use these guidelines to help you choose a supportive bedroom colour that will help you sleep well, protect your health and relationship, and keep you charged and refreshed.

Skin Tones

Since skin tones are a colour that people feel comfortable with, these make a wonderful colour choice for a bedroom in any direction. These colours represent a Feng Shui neutrality that works in almost any corner.

Choose from white, ivory, light pink or pink, yellow, tan and brown colours. Balance all tones with white. For romance, skin tones, especially those with a rosy tone, are the most appealing and sensual.

Watch out for over-saturation.

While colour is a wonderful thing when there is too much of it or it is overwhelming, such as having all four walls and the ceiling painted blue. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a navy blue bedroom. You can, but it’s important to balance a deep shade with lots of light colours like cream, ivory, or white.

Keep ceilings painted white.

While it can be tempting to paint the ceiling your wall colour, it’s always best to use white ceilings. This is the colour of heaven and helps uplift the energy of the bedroom, especially if the walls are light or dark in colour.




Colours for love?

Besides the skin tones of beige, ivory, tan and brown, are there any colours that are helpful for love? There are two. The first is a pink tone. Pink not only helps create warm feelings, but can also help attract love. If you’ve been single for too long, consider this colour.

Seriously single? Then it’s time to use the second colour of romance: peach.

If you are ready to attract a new love into your life and it has been difficult, this colour will be helpful in attracting new love interests.

Peach is a colour known for attracting admirers, but it’s best to only use it when you’re ready to start dating and you mean business. Once you’ve found your object of affection, paint your bedroom a new hue.

Peach is a colour that sometimes attracts admirers who are just out for a good time. That’s why it’s important to be diligently in love when you’re painting your bedroom and make sure your new suitor is interested in you and not just an affair.

If you’re considering trying a peach colour, just paint one wall behind your bed first to see what happens. And of course, you have to do your part to mingle, check out dating apps, and ask friends and family to introduce you. If no admirers show up, go ahead and paint the rest of the bedroom peach colour.

For those who are already partners, peaches are not recommended as they can generate interest outside of the relationship.

The South East Corner in Feng Shui

The Southeast Corner – The Feng Shui Corner of Wealth, Prosperity and Earnings Luck

The southeast sector is one of the most popular corners of the Bagua in Feng Shui. This corner, called the wealth sector, refers to money you save, e.g. B. Investments, and the money you grow. Funding for these purposes is often associated with IRAs, 401Ks, and other investments. This sector is about wealth growth and new ways to make money.

The southeast corner relates to money you want to save, invest, and grow for the future.This is also the area related to the eldest daughter. It also affects the hips and thighs and buttocks on the body. Its season is late spring.

If the southeast corner is affected, you may have trouble collecting funds.

Since this is the prosperity and wealth sector, it is important that the southeast be boosted with water symbols and elements.

This is because the southeast is the sector of small forests. Its light green color resembles the new leaves budding on a tree or small flower. It’s the seed of growth, something we want in our money.

The quality of luck of the south-east corner affects the ability to increase your wealth and create new sources of wealth.

Wealth and money that comes into the home are important, but it’s the money and income that stays in the home that grows over time that really matters.

This corner relates to the ability to find and cultivate existing and new sources of income and wealth. To add more earning potential, activate this corner to create new sources of income.

A sizeable investment or savings account means that you are better financially able to weather adversity and that you can support yourself in your older years and perhaps have money to pass on to your heirs.

The southeast is symbolised by wood, the rectangular shape, and the light green color, like the new leaves of a plant or tree.

Water-related elements are excellent energisers for the south-east corner of the house. An aquarium is an excellent activator for the southeast corner, as is a fountain.

In particular, fountains with three or six floors bring additional happiness. Make sure each well has a water source, e.g. B. a sink, and that there is a place where the water can collect.

Although popular now, the Vanishing Fountain is a type of fountain that contains a vessel, such as a B. a large urn, flows down and then appears to walk on rocks. This symbolises water (money) being lost rather than being captured (saved or accumulated).

Disappearing fountains are not favourable for Feng Shui purposes for this reason.

What to avoid in the Southeast.

The southeast direction is depleted by fire and devastated by metal. Adding metallic or red tones to that corner of your home, garden or living room can reduce the chances of money luck invading your life.

If this is the location of your kitchen or fireplace, add water images here to support growth potential in the Southeast.

Metal in this corner can weigh on finances and strain the relationship with the eldest daughter in the household.

The southeast refers to the number 4.

This is the number of the wealth sector and the oldest daughter. Although four is a Mandarin homonym for death, it is not a negative number. It is a number signifying growth and reproduction.

Symbols such as fish, turtles, tortoises, and water images are all beneficial in this corner of your home.

Flowers are an excellent energiser for the Southeast sector, as are a group of plants. Be sure to have a beautiful garden in the southeast sector of your garden to activate prosperity and prosperity luck.

If you can add a water feature here, it’s even better. Finally, green light is a wonderful activator in this corner. Increase your wealth and prosperity by adding green objects or a green light to create opportunities to make money or improve your investments.


Feng Shui and the 5 elements of space living

Another aspect of the spatial dimension to emphasise is the balance of the elements in the house. 

To create a balanced home, it is important to balance the elements of the finishes within the living space. You should not have too much of an element that overwhelms others, otherwise it can create an unsettling effect.

To adopt a 5 element design concept, we would need to introduce the wood element through plants and greenery. With fire energy, the living space should be adequately lit to add vibrancy to its atmosphere. Earth energy is represented by the ground material to create a solid base and impact.

Metal energy is introduced through the color of the walls, with further accents added through the window and door finishes. Water energy is created through physical water, with the sound and feel of the water helping to create a calming oasis for the space.

When designing your space, always look to the spatial dimension of Feng Shui to understand how the space itself is a living entity and how it can help improve our lives as well as the energies of our home. Look at the physical aspect of space and how you can use it to expand your home. Or capture the exterior views of the home to create the visual illusion of space and finally understand how the elements we introduce into the space can find balance in the energy of the home.

Bringing the outside in with Feng Shui

Another way to expand your space is to borrow from the outside landscape

In scenarios where we are constrained by our physical space, we can consider enveloping the exterior views into the home through the use of floor to ceiling windows.

This technique allows us to bring the outside landscape inside, providing the spatial experience we need without compromising our physical footprint.

One thing to remember is that space is three dimensional. In homes that don’t have the luxury of physical space or exterior views, we can always look up at the sky. By creating a strong skylight effect, it allows our visual experience to be drawn into the sky, where the sky itself becomes our landscape palette.

Not only does this allow us to bring the vibrant sun yang energy into the home, but it also creates an emotional living experience where nature plays a crucial role in shaping our moods in the room.

Feng Shui & design & ceiling heights

Using Ceiling Height regarding to the principle of Feng Shui

If we are constrained by the given footprint, another method is to play with the vertical element of the space. By designing your living area to accommodate a double height volume, you can experience an explosion of space through its volumetric effect.

In this example, the upper seating area offers a more private experience while the lower living area is more open and public.

This energetic environment allows the family to interact on different floors of the home and allows the architecture to create a visual barrier between private and public zones, all without the use of walls or partitions. This design method impresses with the concept of a fluid flow of energy that resonates throughout the house and spatial freedom.

Feng Shui & Desig & the open space

Design and Feng Shui – the space dimension – the open plan

One of the key elements in Feng Shui is understanding the concept of space. By using formulas, instructions, and charts, we can see which areas of the home are right for each of us. However, to maximise the potential of these areas, we must be able to create a “space” that evokes a positive emotional response. How we feel, how we act, and even how we live is directly attributed to what we see and experience around us.

The Open Plan

Through the spatial dimension of Feng Shui, we explore ways to create spaces that help promote a sense of freedom and harmony. One of the key elements in the space dimension technique is the concept of the open space plan. Through an open concept we are able to arrange different areas (living, dining, entertaining or reading) of the house in a single space, allowing each area to stand independently but still being held together by the overall space.

This allows the room to “grow” exponentially, creating the illusion of a room that is larger than it actually is. This allows us to breathe easier and experience the true concept of abundance and growth. It helps promote family values ​​and allows each individual family member to do their own thing and still be connected, making every mundane task a social family event.

Another great benefit of an open plan is the ability for the energies of the home to flow freely and unhindered from one corner to the other. It is therefore important to recognise which areas of the house are promising based on the Flying Star natal chart. By organising your open housing right, promising star combinations can be further increased, allowing the household to benefit maximally from its powerful energy.

For example, look for sectors within the house that contain either the Water or Mountain Star #8 and make those sectors the center of the open plan layout. This allows the energies of the #8 stars to overwhelm the other corners, increasing their influence on the neighbouring flying star combinations.

Another method when designing an open plan is to break up the spaces through the use of dividers to emphasise a sense of privacy from one room to another, yet leave it open enough for the seamless flow of energy to be maintained. In this example, the living and dining areas are divided into distinct zones with a feature cabinet, but the window facade and floor pattern emphasise the open concept to tie the two areas together.
