Feng Shui Floor Numbers, Building Shapes and Colors [Master Class Lesson 7]

Hello!  Welcome back to the Feng Shui Master Class.  We have studied the internal environment in the last two lessons.  The internal Feng Shui is what you could control via interior design.  In this week we will look at things you cannot control after buying the flat.  They are the floor number and shape and color of your apartment.

Yes, the floor number and building shape could affect Feng Shui.  Usually when I check the Feng Shui of an apartment, I would firstly check if the floor numbering is good.  I would also look at the shape of the whole building.  The reason is simple, you can change the interior design to whatever style as long as the structure of the building so allows.  But you cannot change the floor number nor the shape or color of the building unless you relocate.  These are what many people overlook but actually quite important Feng Shui elements.

 

Your Five-Element Characteristic

To check whether the floor number of your apartment and the shape and color of the building fit you, we need to know which of the five elements you belong to.  This could be very complicated because usually we need to check your actual birthday.  An easier way to do so is to check your year of birth and thus the zodiac sign.  Below is a list of zodiac signs according to the year of birth.

Rat: 1924, 1926, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, 2032

Ox: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021, 2033

Tiger: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022, 2034

Rabbit: 1927, 1939, 1951 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023, 2035

Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2036

Snake: 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025, 2037

Horse: 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026, 2038

Sheep: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027, 2039

Monkey: 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028, 2040

Rooster: 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029, 2041

Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030, 2042

Pig: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043

There is a trick here.  If you were born before 4 February of a year, you should treat yourself as born in the previous year when finding out your zodiac sign.  For example, if you were born in 20 January 1981, you should be a “monkey” instead of “rooster”.  Why?  According to Chinese Feng Shui principles a year begins in Spring, and Spring usually begins on 4 February.  Before 4 February the new year is not actually arrived.

OK, by knowing your zodiac sign, we could tell which one of the five elements’ characteristics you have:

Pig, Rat: Water

Snake, Horse: Fire

Tiger, Rabbit: Wood

Monkey, Rooster: Metal

Dragon, Dog, Ox, Sheep: Earth

 

Should I Live on High or Low Level?

Not all people are suitable to live on high levels.  Some people would be more suitable to live in low-rise buildings or the lower floors of a high-rise building.  There is no exact definition for “high” and “low”, it really depends on the general situations of the place you live.

For example, in the city where I live in, Hong Kong, most residential buildings are over 30-storey high.  So we are used to count the 10th floor and below as lower floors, and 21st floor and above as high.  But in cities where the population density is lower, the buildings are usually lower.  A general rule of thumb is to divide the building into three portions, the lowest 1/3 being the lower floors, than the middle floors and the rest 1/3 are the high levels.

 

Pig, Rat

Lower levels are more suitable to you for residential purpose.

 

Snake, Horse

If possible, you should choose to live on high levels.

 

Tiger, Rabbit

High levels are most suitable for you to live.

 

Monkey, Rooster

Same as Snake, Horse, Tiger and Rabbit, high levels are most suitable for you to live.

 

Dragon, Dog, Ox, Sheep

You are most suitable to live in low to medium floors.

Feng Shui Living Room – The Do’s and Don’ts

To create a Feng Shui living room is one of the most common reasons for hiring a Feng Shui master.  People spend a few hours a day in the living room, the Chi in this place definitely affects the well-being of the occupants.

How could you create a Feng Shui living room?  Well there are many rules to follow and if you are serious about it, you’ve got to use a Feng Shui compass and do some calculations.  Here in this article I will share with you some simple tips to create a a Feng Shui living room.  Do not under-estimate the effects of these tips, although they are simple steps to take, doing all of them could bring you a good Feng Shui living room.

 

Feng Shui Living Room – Colors

You must have heard some other Feng Shui gurus telling you to use particular colors to create a Feng Shui living room.  For example, some gurus say that red is perfect for all living rooms.  On the other hand, I have seen other gurus recommending cold colors as the best for a Feng Shui living room.  These universal advices may be true but I would prefer personalizing your living room according to either the need of your particular home or the birthday of yourself, since no two houses are equal, so as human being.

I wrote another article in this blog about choosing Feng Shui colors.  These colors could improve your Chi and bring you luck.  They are found according to your own year of birth, so they are more powerful in affecting you.  You should consider using these colors in your Feng Shui living room.

Another simple way to choose colors for your Feng Shui living room is to follow the flying stars (飛星) of a particular year.  According to the flying star theory, the most popular and powerful Feng Shui theory, there are 9 flying stars that relocate to different directions every year.  Each of these flying stars carry different meaning and power.  By using the appropriate colors you can absorb the positive energy of good flying stars.  On the other hand, if you wrongly used some colors that trigger the bad effects of bad flying stars, you may attract bad luck.

To find out these colors and the locations of the flying stars of the current year, you need to know the flying star theory and five-element (五行) concept.  If you do not have relevant knowledge or experience, I have prepared a handy Feng Shui 2013 Guidebook that teaches you how to do the best Feng Shui in year 2012.  Simply find out in which direction your living room is, follow the instructions I gave about that particular direction, you can easily make a Feng Shui living room.  You can download this book from the previous link or by registering using the form at the end of this article.

 

Feng Shui Living Room – Dynamic v.s. Static

Some people believe that the living room is where you watch TV and listen to music so it must be noisy.  Some other people believe that the living room must be calm and silent so that people in the room could enjoy peace and harmony.  Which one of these arguments is correct?

Both of them are true and false.  It is illogical to mute your TV simply to ensure you have a silent living room.  On the other hand, it is definitely not good frmo living science point of view to have a noisy living room.  We need a balance here.

Feng Shui Living Room - Yin and Yang

This is the dynamic v.s. static theory in Feng Shui.  A Feng Shui living room should have a balance of both elements just like the Yin (陰) and yang (陽) of a Tai Chi (太極) symbol.  What really matters is how you locate them.  Generally speaking directions with bad flying stars should avoid all dynamic elements.  On the other hand, you can use dynamic objects such as a clock, water fountain or TV to maximize the positive effects of good flying stars.  Again, you can refer to my FREE guidebook for more information.

Another paramount rule to follow is timing.  Obviously the living room could be a bit noisy and dynamic in day time but at night it should be calm and silent.  Very logical, right?

 

Feng Shui Living Room – Mirrors

Mirror is the love and hate of Feng Shui masters.  If used correctly they could magnify the positive effects of good flying stars.  Conversely, mirrors could also be bad if placed wrongly since they could also and power-up the bad effects of bad flying stars.  You should take great care about mirrors if you want a good Feng Shui living room.

It is quite common to find mirrors in modern day living rooms because many interior designs love using mirrors to create an illusion that the living room is enlarged.  Make sure you check the directions before placing mirrors in the living room (and bed room, study room, etc… toilet is a different issue we may discuss separately).

 

Feng Shui Living Room – Lighting

A Feng Shui living room must have abundant lighting.  Light is the source of energy.  Believe it or not, a dark house may attract spirits according to Feng Shui theories.

The best source of light is the sun.  Natural daylight is far better than artificial lighting but if there are physical constraints in your house that the living room cannot get sufficient daylight, use artificial lighting.  What does it mean by “sufficient lighting”?  You can test by trying to read a book in the darkest corner of your living room.  If you can easily read all the words, the living room is OK.  The is a basic requirement for a Feng Shui living room.

Find Out Your Chinese Zodiac Sign for Feng Shui Colors

Each year has its own Chinese Zodiac Sign for the purpose of calculating Feng Shui Colors.  Below is a list of the zodiac signs since 1924 and the coming years.

 

Rat: 1924, 1926, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, 2032

Ox: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021, 2033

Tiger: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022, 2034

Rabbit: 1927, 1939, 1951 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023, 2035

Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2036

Snake: 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025, 2037

Horse: 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026, 2038

Sheep: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027, 2039

Monkey: 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028, 2040

Rooster: 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029, 2041

Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030, 2042

Pig: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043

 

Basically the zodiac signs have a 12-year cycle, meaning that 2012 is Year of Dragon, so as 12 years later i.e. 2024.  So if you happen to be born before 1924, you can do the maths yourself.

To find out your Feng Shui Colors, simple find out your zodiac sign according to your year of birth, then check the Feng Shui Colors above.

For example, a gentleman born on 17 April 1959 belongs to the Pig zodiac and his luck colors are gold, silver, white, blue, gray and black.  If he buys a car, he should buy one in one of these colors.  His accessories are preferably in these colors.  So as the ceiling, walls and furniture in his house.

Certainly this is just a guidance.  You don’t need to stick to these colors only.  Even if you do not use any of these colors you could be lucky if it is your lucky year, they simply boost your luck.

 

Wait… Something You Must Know

For the purpose of finding out your Feng Shui Colors (and everything related to Feng Shui), the beginning of a year is NOT 1 January!  What?  Is this a joke?

No, it’s not.  In Chinese, Spring is the real beginning of a year for the purpose of Feng Shui and fortune-telling.  Spring usually comes on 4 February every year, sometimes slightly earlier or later.  In other words, if you were born on 29 January 1949, for the purpose of Feng Shui Colors you do not belong to the Ox zodiac sign but Rat instead.
