Present in everything we do, the elements are regarded as the building blocks of all natural phenomena. They are also integral to how we experience daily life.
The practice of Feng Shui seeks to bring balance by understanding how our element influences the six energies within—wisdom, socializing, creativity, seduction, prosperity and status.
As the seasons change, so does our focus. Autumn is the time to reap what has diligently been sown, to reflect on what has passed, to let go of possessions and emotions we no longer need. As the flower turns to seed, we learn from nature to make room for new growth and consolidate the year’s lessons. This is the season of the lungs and the leading element, metal, promoting clarity in mind and body. So, with your attention to the west, take regular walks, meditate, practice yoga and remain conscious of your breath. Align your energies along this path of rest, reflection, and inspiration.
For Yin Fire, autumn focuses on wisdom and prosperity, with creativity emerging as the season draws to a close. Yin Fire males will also sense an increase in their seductive energy.
This is the perfect time to turn your attention inwards. In the calm of the morning, reflect upon the lessons of the past, and look to your elders and mentors for guidance towards a more purposeful future. Nature holds the greatest wisdom of all, so spend time outdoors and bring plants into your domain.
Perfect Pairings: The scents of Golden Wood and Magnetic Wood will bring clarity to a mind in search of wisdom.
Draw your attention to the west, and declutter your home and workspace to allow the flow of wealth energy from this direction.
Yin Fire males exude strong seductive energy this season. Dress in grey tones, and arrange evening dates in the west of town.
Perfect Pairings: Heighten your charms with the fragrance of Metal Flower and Matrix Metal.
As the season wanes, your creativity will increase. If you are already working on a project, early evening will prove productive. Keep the energy clear in the centre of you space, and the entrance free from clutter.
Perfect Pairings: Invite inspiration with the fragrance of Desired Earth and Royal Earth, and circulate positive Qi by lighting candles in these scents.< Back
