Feng Shui Colors
Colors have an important role in feng shui. They are used to represent the Five Elements as follows:
Metal – gold, white and silver
black, grey and blue
Wood – green
Fire – red, pink and purple
Earth – yellow and brown
creation cycle of the Five Elements is: Metal → Water, Water
→ Wood, Wood → Fire, Fire → Earth, and Earth → Metal. The
reverse cycle will produce weakening effect.
addition, there is also the counteraction cycle: Metal breaks
Wood, Wood cuts into Earth, Earth absorbs Water, Water puts out
Fire, and Fire melts Metal.
of above cycles can help us to choose the right color for the right
place so as to balance the Five Elements. For example, we can use
yellow or brown color to enhance Earth Element. However,
if there is too much Earth Element, we can choose gold, white and
silver to weaken it.
When choosing colors for the different locations in our house, we need to know the relationship between the Five Elements and the directions, which are as follows:
North – Water Element
South – Fire Element
East – Wood Element
Creation Cycle, Weakening Cycle and Counteraction Cycle of the Five
Elements can provide some guidelines in the choice of colors.
For example, gold, white and silver (Metal Element) should be
avoided on the East (Wood Element) as Metal destroys
calamities were said to arise from imbalance of the Five
Elements. Therefore, using the right color in the right place
can help to balance the Five Elements, which in turn, can lessen
conflicts and enhance harmony.
In addition, colors can act as feng shui cures for bad qi.
