Wealth Area of the Feng Shui Bagua (Energy Floor Plan)
The wealth area of the bagua (as can be seen on http://www.fengshuimoon.com) is an area many people ask me about in Feng Shui consultations. In this third dimensional plane we live in, yes, we need money to survive. So, I will give you some hints on how to attract more wealth into your life.
First off, the wealth area (also the empowerment and prosperity area) of your home is the far-left corner of your house/apartment from the architectural front door. Many Feng Shui consultants use the whole area, but I like to use the area as close to the actual corner as possible. I think it brings in more power and energy because this area extends past the bagua border.
This area needs the colors of blue, purple and red, so any combination of these colors would be very auspicious and attract good energy. This area also represents the hip and bones in the body, so if you are having any problems with this area of your body, be sure that this area of the ba gua is clutter free and in repair.
You want to have good light in this area (and be sure to turn the light on frequently to light up the wealth area) as well as many money cures such as the prosperity ball or coin ball, Chinese coins strung together on a red cord, two bamboo flutes, live plants, and of course your money vase. Money vase, you ask? Yes, there is a little-known feature as a simple money vase that actually attracts more money to you. Get an octagon mirror, a red napkin or cloth and a clear glass vase that is wider at the top than at the bottom. Put coins and dollar bills from around the world, put American money in it that you want to, put in jewelry that you don’t use but that is of good quality. The intent is to accumulate more money or wealth. You may keep adding to the money vase in whichever way you feel appropriate; however, be sure that the mirror is face up and that the red cloth goes over the mirror. Then place the vase over the mirror and cloth.
Another easy way to add to your money vase is to add a coin such as a quarter and make sure you add a quarter every single day for a month and then you can let it go. The intent is to continue to gather money.
As long as you keep the energy balanced in this area, your financial security will become more stable and secure.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19
This is a great time to find your way in career and personal life. Good opportunities will be offered to you to make life better and happier once you start going in the direction that you know will be in your best interest. If anything in your life is getting you depressed, making you a hypocrite, or keeping you from obtaining your goals, this is the time to get rid of that issue, concern or problem now. Just let it go or take a positive step forward to change the energy around you. Unexpected travel, schooling or training and perhaps even changes in your understanding of philosophy or religion may surprise you. This is a very emotionally balanced month where you will find peace of mind, a true center and will become more stable and balanced in all areas of life, just by taking that first step. If there seems to be so many issues hitting you at the same time, don’t worry. You take the most important issues and deal with them one at a time until they are all done. It’s a great time to make life changes and to be super confident in your abilities, your motives and your spiritual direction.
TAURUS – April 20 – May 20
The only word to describe this month is “activity.” Activity is all around you and around your family and friends as well. You may be planning many parties or events and even though you feel it may be an overwhelming task, you will handle them quite easily and everyone will comment on how wonderful the party, get-together or event was. This is also a time to let your cooking or baking gifts come to light. If you were ever thinking of writing a cook book, this would be the time with the solar eclipse in Taurus. You are being blessed for the next six months so make sure you accomplish things that are important to you. The procrastination has to stop and you have to take the bull by the horns (sorry) and move in a very positive direction. Change is hard especially for your sign, but with change comes the opportunities to see new things, allow new people into your life and learn something extraordinary. Be sure that everything is fine on the home front and resolve issues that have caused hard feelings between one or more of your family members and friends.
GEMINI – May 21 – June 20
Even though there is much luck around you, you seem to have to fight for it. Friends will be a big help in getting you to understand why these difficult times are happening to you, but in the long run, you know things are moving along faster and better than before. You may consider this time period a period of drastic change. Anything that has not been working in your life needs to be released and must be forgotten. You seem confident and have a great deal of stability now as you try to move forward to making your next steps in life important ones. Remember all of those mysterious circumstances or things that just won’t make sense. If that is an important issue, you must deal with the confusion before it gets out of hand. A new venture or project will bring you money down the road, but you have to be vigilant to complete the project. Emotions are so much more balanced and hopeful for a great new future involving a new significant other. Start looking for him or her – they are out there.
CANCER – June 21 – July 21
There are many secrets around you. People are hiding things from you and in turn, you are doing the same. If it is a very important secret(s), be sure that you only share them with those you trust 100%. Not everyone is as honest and trustworthy as you, so be careful in choosing your friends and guarding important information. You start to have a lot of activity around you. It seems you want to get to everything you have let slip over the long and cold winter. You are thinking in a very strong, assertive and dominant way. You have ideas and want them to come to pass. Being a nice person was always important to you, but now you are wondering if your boundaries are just non-existent and it needs to change. Use the energy around you to be creative and artistic. This is what will get you through any days or nights where you feel lonely or uncertain about your future. Changes are coming, so just go with the flow and you will be happy, healthy and moving into an abundant future.
LEO – July 22 – August 22
New beginnings in rediscovering yourself and your emotions are at hand. You want to change so much about yourself including on the inside and out. Changes in your home life and work seem to be coming at the same time, but as usual, Ms. Leo can handle it well. You can juggle so many things in the air at the same time, that some may think you were born and raised in a circus. Many karmic lessons will be addressed and some may even be resolved. It is a time of dealing with hardships and problems in a very uplifting way. Action is imperative, so if something has to be done or changed, you must move ahead as soon as you can. It is also a time for artistic ability, innovation, invention and creativity. It can be for you or for you to teach your children (especially if you are a teacher) or mom. Expanding your awareness and consciousness will help you see so many perspectives that you will be grateful to Spirit for all of your opportunities and your good life. Emotions may still be confusing about some personal matters, but if you take one step at a time and deal with the most important issues first, life will fall into perfect order in a very short period of time.
VIRGO – August 23 – September 22
This is a time where you really have to budget your money and re-examine your budget. Staying on target is important because there are so many bills creeping into your life. You don’t really know where all of these obligations or responsibilities are coming from, but you do know that you have to take care of them. Spouse’s or other peoples’ money may be an issue. If people owe you money, try to get it back as quickly as possible or it may not be there down the road. Dealing with a health issue is more positive now. There is an answer or a diagnosis that you may follow. You will be healthier than you have been for the last few months. Rest and take care of yourself and you should be yourself in no time at all. You do feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders, but you are able to deal with so many issues now that it is just one more thing that you needed to add to your list. A responsibility at home needs to be dealt with in a very positive way. Take control; deal with it and then just move on. Don’t let other peoples’ opinion of you stop you from doing what you know in your heart is right.
LIBRA – September 23 – October 22
Librans need balance but rarely get it. This is another one of those months where the perfect balance would be helpful between your career and home life. A new look for yourself will do wonders to lift your spirit. A makeover is also recommended. You have a feeling that new opportunities are right on the horizon if you are brave enough to grab them. Are you thinking of moving or trying a different career? Health issues may be of concern, but with rest, taking care of yourself, being vigilante about taking any prescribed medications and any other advice that your healthcare professional has given you, you will be on the road to perfect health shortly. Emotions are doing well and you feel more in control. Watch out for expending too much energy to help others and not enough left over for yourself. If you don’t help yourself, who will do it for you? Things may be blown out of proportion this month as you try to do everything that you feel needs to be accomplished; however, it is important to know when to let things just die a natural death and when you should handle a situation which has a great deal of potential for your future.
SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
So many things are changing in your life, but it is your doing. Some Scorpios want to move, change jobs, try something new or start having children. Redecorating, repainting and repairing your home and/or office seem like a rewarding endeavor. What is the new energy doing to you? You are taking control of your life and getting your life in order now. Procrastination is a thing of the past. You dislike having so many unfinished projects, chores or goals around you. You feel as if you need to accomplish so much now, especially in your career, that you are working overtime and doing a really good job of concluding important issues and projects. Kudos. Love life needs some attention as well so make amends or deal with issues that need resolution or closure. Thinking with new perspectives or maybe thinking just a little more outside of the box will help you finish all of your goals in a very short period of time. Many karmic lessons will be resolved or dealt with if you follow your heart.
SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20
What an exciting time to do so many things that you have left on the back burner for so long. Cleaning or de-cluttering your house and perhaps having a garage sale or donating your old treasures to local charities to sell for profit seems like a great idea. You should renew your commitment to your goals and dreams which have been left by the wayside. Why not renew a relationship with your children or start a new, creative project? Painting, singing, crafts, scrap booking, dancing, or writing come to mind. Write that book you’ve always wanted to tackle. You know you’ve had an interesting life and so many others should know of your experiences and accomplishments. Making an effort to buy new clothes, get a makeover or something as simple as treating yourself to a spa day or massage seems like a good way to spend your time. You seem interested in looking extra good, taking care of yourself (physically, mentally and emotionally) and are ready to do whatever it takes to move forward. There are so many positive opportunities out there for you, but it would be wise to narrow down the field and try to strive for only a few at a time. Some unexpected travel or education may come in handy and give you the break (or opportunity) you need to make a big difference in your life.
CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19
Your health is very important at this time. Making sure you have had all your regular annual doctor appointments and meds are important to continue to keep healthy. Some drama seems to come and go this month, but you are very strong and determined not to let anything stand in your way of your goals, aspirations and dreams. You are very determined and are trying very hard to move forward in a positive way within your career. Good times are coming soon so take advantage of everything and everyone that wants to help you find your way to your happily ever after and take their advice or opportunities. You are getting stronger and more adamant about accomplishing important things in your life and taking those opportunities when they are given to you. You feel more appreciation for all that you have and are becoming more grateful with each passing day that your life is finally going in the direction that you want it to go. Inspiration, creativity and innovative abilities will be tested to see if you truly want to move forward. You are destined for great things if you continue to have the self-confidence and strength to go after your dreams.
AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17
Partnerships are important again. Finding the right partner or fixing the issues you have with your current partner. You are also not very happy about what has been going on in your life. Perhaps you are thinking too much about the past and in doing so, you really aren’t able to move towards a positive future. Living in the past keeps you in the past. Trying to find spirituality or enlightenment is a really good ambition; however, reading one book does not make you enlightened and telling everyone about it doesn’t make you spiritual. Spirituality and enlightenment are different for everyone, so if this is truly what you want to do – find your path. Your work environment is negative and you are holding onto your job for the pay check or benefits, but you are no longer happy at your place of business. You need to push yourself to make it into work each day and that’s no way to live. When you feel it’s appropriate, you should start sending out resumes or networking with friends and family. Do this especially on the May 9th eclipse. There are so many new job opportunities for you that would be in your best interest, but it certainly is not the one you are in now. Home life seems lonely or depressed but it is nothing a little redecorating or a fresh coat of paint won’t solve. Go to flea markets, auctions or garage sales to get new furniture, accessories or paintings so you can brighten up your space. You are going to be thinking about health and/or some procedures. Schedule them; if they are as important as the doctor suggests, you should have them taken care of as soon as is practical.
PISCES – February 18 – March 19
Money issues can be resolved if you are prudent and try to pay things off quickly. Try not to charge anymore and pay with cash to keep your budget in balance. Career is doing well, but you still want to do so many things to prove to management or the owner of the company that you are a valued employee or partner. There may be secrets going on behind your back and if you find that you are the source of the gossip or jealousy, you must speak up. Pretending it away will make it worse as they will think you are scared and will continue to single you out. Standing up to them will make the gossip stop dead in its tracks. Be careful not to let life spiral out of control. Your life is active and fun. You meet new people and make new bonds with some special ones. Make sure you are in control of everything you do this month including dealing with those who may be difficult to deal with. Watch your sarcastic words which may get you in trouble. Creativity, acting, additional classes, lectures, seminars, workshops or formal education can be just what you need to prepare you for a bright future.
