The Feng Shui Colors of Christmas

Colors play an important role in Feng Shui and our general feelings of well being. When decorating for this year’s holiday season, think about where your tree is placed and how the main Christmas colours will affect your home’s energy.

When decorating your home ready for Christmas it’s not only the colors of tinsel and decorations, it is also good to consider the placement of the tree, the lawn decorations and for some lovers of the Christmas spirit, the miles of LED lighting.

I’ll use the Flying Stars chart of my home as an example of how I worked out the best place to put my Christmas tree and how I chose the colors I decorated it with. Here is our Flying Star chart –

In my house, the area to display our tree for the nicest effect in the living room happens to be in the Northwest, which has a 2 Earth mountain star and 5 Earth water star in the Flying Star system. Here are some indications of the 2-5 combination from various international Feng Shui Masters –

Master 1 – “This is one of the most inauspicious combinations in Flying Star Feng Shui, and the indications are sickness, injuries or bloodshed, etc. When the star 5 and the star 2 occur together, there is always indication of illness or in serious case, terminal illness followed by death.”

Master 2 – “Severe illness. (2: small illness, 5: major illness.) Food poisoning and illness associated with food. 2/5/9 illness may be fatal. Children will have behavioural problems in school.”

Master 3 – “This deadly combination must be avoided at all costs. It can be fatal at worst and at best, may lead to cancer, appendicitis, as well as unwanted miscarriages.”

Master 4 – “Widow, Widower, Bad For The Resident – Obstacles and misfortune. Abortion, Stomach Cancer, Intestinal Cancer, Appendicitis, Spleenalgia.”

Almost all Flying Stars Feng Shui teachers are very grim when it comes to explaining the results of a 2-5 mountain-water star combination.

The Feng Shui Solution

Let’s look at the Cycle of Elements (thanks to

Following the flow of Chi, we can see that Wood creates Fire which creates Earth. Very bad for the 2-5 Earth combination in the Northwest.

We can also see that Metal and Water support Wood which will control Earth as long as there’s zero Fire colors.

This means that by decorating with lots of Metal and Water coloured lights, tinsel and baubles, I can make sure the tree actually helps the Feng Shui, I just have to make sure there aren’t any Fire colors.

A much better solution is to place the tree in a sector that is supported by Wood and where Fire is helpful. Let’s face it, the color red is big part of Christmas and where would Santa be without his bright red suit.

Looking at my home’s chart, the North occupies part of the living room which we can use for our tree display. It has a 7 Metal mountain star with a 9 Fire water star.

This is another poorly aspected combination with descriptions like –

“Heart disease has been known to be a prevalent problem under the influence of these stars. Also, expect sudden fires and large blazes, especially when negative stars fly in. Otherwise this combination denotes bad tempers and relationship problems.”

Even though the description of the 7-9 combination is negative, if we look at the Lo Shu, the North is Kan Trigram (Water) which drains 7 Metal of it’s negative energy.

Kan Water supports the Wood Element which supports the positive 9 Fire. By placing the tree here, we’ve managed to create a harmonious Elemental cycle from the Lo Shu to the 9 Fire wealth star despite adding an internal mountain.

In 8 Mansions Feng Shui, the North for us is the Yien Nien direction – “Longevity with Rich Descendants”, so adding a tree here is very helpful.

Now, all I have to do is rearrange the living area and annoy the whole family…

Have a safe and happy Christmas everyone.

Have a lucky Feng Shui Christmas
