Water features and fountains are one of the Nine Essential Adjustments in Feng Shui.
If you wish to enhance your space with the lovely sights and sounds of a fountain, you’ll have the most success when you know exactly where to place it, and why.
Let’s look at the impact of a fountain in each of the three Bagua sectors.
1. A fountain in the Career/Life Journey sector:
This is the only Bagua area that’s strictly associated with the Water element, so placing a fountain here powerfully strengthens your intention about the direction of your career or the journey of your life.
Moving water brings a sense of activity to the sector, signifying your intention for “smooth sailing” as you move your life forward.
2. A fountain in the New Beginnings/Family sector:
The Wood element represents this area, which is all about putting down roots and drawing strength from them.
Since Water nourishes Wood, placing your fountain here nourishes your intention to commence successfully on a new project, or wish to strengthen or heal family relationships.
3. A fountain in the Wealth/Abundance sector:
This area is also associated with Wood – flexible young wood in this case, such as new plants and waving grasses.
As the gentle wind wafts through young plants they gather abundance into your life. Place a water fountain here to bring powerful growth to your abundance and enhance your sense of gratitude for your blessings.
