An aquarium is one of Feng Shui’s most powerful adjustments, anchoring your intention for Wealth and abundance.
An aquarium instantly brings good Feng Shui into your space because it brings the colors, shapes and symblism of the Five Elements into your home or office:
- The Wood element for growth: in the live plants and green foliage;
- The Fire element for passion and excitement: in the colors of the fish and lighting in the tank. Fire may also be present if you place statuettes of people in your aquarium: the warmth of humanity strongly represents this element, and in anything that’s red or orange;
- The Earth element for stability: in the sand at the bottom of the tank, the earthy colors of your aquarium’s accessories, and its shape if it is square or rectangular;
- The Metal element for discernment, planning and organization: in the gleam of your shiny fish, in some of the parts of the aquarium, and in its shape if it is round;
- and, of course, the dominant Water element. Water is well-known to symbolize cash flow, so this is an extra-special benefit that an aquarium brings into your world.
Follow these four simple steps to set up a perfect Feng Shui aquarium.
1. It’s most auspicious that your aquarium contain nine fish because nine is the considered most powerful and auspicious Yang number in Feng Shui.
2. Eight goldfish and one black fish are ideal. The number eight represents prosperity, while the one black fish is said to absorb negative Chi. (Read more here about Feng Shui and numbers.)
3. Place your aquarium according to good Feng Shui principles. The linked article outlines the best placement for your aquarium in your home or office.
4. Keep your aquarium scrupulously clean. Wherever you place it, you’ll want to be sure that its energy is nourishing to you and your fish – keep the water clear, clean and flowing to reap all the abundance an aquarium can bring into your life.
