Gold: the rich, lustrous color of money – of sunshine – and of heaven.
In Feng Shui, Gold is associated with two elements, Metal and Earth. It’s most strongly connected with the Travel & Helpful People and Children sectors of the Bagua Energy Map.
Activate powerful creative and productive energy in these two sectors with gold objects, golden hues in paintings and art, and even goldfish.
Gold sends a powerful message that you are seeking help for a critical project or are working on achieving a particularly important goal.
Gold can also be used effectively in the Center (Earth) sector of the Bagua as it is considered equivalent to Yellow in Feng Shui.
- In the Center, stick to square shapes for your Gold object to provide the stability necessary in this sector.
Interestingly, as a color that evokes the Metal element, Gold should be used sparingly (if at all) in the Wealth sector of your space, because it clashes with the Wood element there.
Likewise avoid using Gold in the New Beginnings sector which is also is associated with Wood.
Lighting up your space with the sheen and polish of Gold adds a bit of richness to your life that few things can imitate.
