An aquarium can be one of the best things you do to create good Feng Shui in your home or office.
To begin with, having any kind of pet is excellent Feng Shui — something to care about and nurture just as you nurture yourself every day.
Just as important, an aquarium is unusually powerful in that it contains more Feng Shui symbolism than most individual objects.
Therefore, when you bring an aquarium into your home or office, it’s essential to set it up properly so that it can bring its benefits most fully into your life.
Set up your aquarium using Feng Shui as your guide, and discover how it feels to tap its positive, powerful energy.
1. Use your Feng Shui Bagua Map to place your aquarium. The best locations are
- The Life Journey sector: this sector is associated with the flowing Water element. It is often located near your front door, so an aquarium can create a beneficial sense of welcoming flow in this important spot.
- The New Beginnings/Family sector: located on the left-hand side of your space, this sector is represented by the Wood element and nourished by Water.
- The Wealth & Abundance sector: this area is also a Wood element sector. An aquarium here can go a long way towards nourishing your finances and sense of gratitude.
2. There are two rooms where your aquarium does NOT belong, according to Feng Shui.
- Don’t place your aquarium in your bedroom. Its constant motion, subtle light, and electric energy create too much Yang energy in a bedroom;
- Likewise, place your aquarium in a room other than your kitchen, where the Water element can symbolically extinguish a kitchen’s vital Fire energy.
3. Don’t place your aquarium in a sunny window!
- The powerful rays of the sun heat up the water to temperatures that are too warm for your fish to be comfortable.
- The sun’s warmth also creates conditions in which aquarium water quickly grows cloudy and green – not good for your fish, and a lot of work for you!
