BaGua is one of the main methods used to analyze the feng shui of any given space. Translated from Chinese, it means, 8 areas. The Bagua Map is like an energy map of your home. Just like an accupuncturist maps out areas of your body, with various energy centers, Feng Shui provides us with the Bagua to map the inherent energies within a space. Classical Feng Shui guides you in placing the map in correlation with North South East and West.

 

In working with the BaGua, think in fractal terms. This means the map works on any scale. You may place it over a blueprint of your entire property, the floorplan of your home, or a specific room. You may even use it in  space as small as your desk top.

 

The eight life areas with which the map corresponds are; Career, Wisdom and Knowledge, Family and Health, Wealth & Prosperity, Fame, Marriage & Relationships, Children & Creativity, Helpful People & Travel.

  

  The chart below illustrates the colors and shapes that correspond with the five elements.

You can use this guide to find elements of decor which support the energetic areas in your home:
