There are five elements in Feng Shui and one will apply especially to you, based on the year of your birth. The elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Using your birth element as the predominant element when you are decorating your spaces will result in the best possible environment to nourish and support you.
The best way to bring the energy of your element into your home is to decorate in the colors of that element. For wood decorate in greens and brown. To evoke the energy of fire use red, orange, warm purple and strong pink. Sand and earthy colors as well as light yellow and light brown correspond to the earth element. For metal decorate in white and grey. Use blues and black bring the water element into your spaces.
How to calculate Your Feng Shui Birth Element
Chinese years don’t correspond to the western calendar with each new year beginning on the 1st January, instead Chinese years are calculated on the Luna calendar with the year beginning on the second full moon after the winter solstice. So the first day of each will be a different date in either late January or early February. For example if you were born on 25 January 1990 your element is Earth and not Metal which is the sign for the majority of people born in 1990.
Use the chart below to see the Chinese year that your birth date falls into and the element for your year:
Be sure to reference the Bagua to make sure that where you are placing the elements is constructive and not destructive!
