Feng Shui and the BaGua Energy Map

The ba gua (ba: eight; gua: area) is a map of the energetic qualities of your space. It is traditionally shown as an octagon with eight sections surrounding a central area, the Tai Chi. For practical use, we extend the corners of the bagua to form a square, then divide it into nine equal sections.

The bagua divides any space into these nine areas. Each area corresponds to a different aspect of your life (see diagram). Whatever is going on energetically-good or bad-in that part of your space will affect the related aspect of your life.

Every space has a bagua. There is a bagua for your plot of land, a bagua for your house or apartment, and a bagua for each room within your home. You can even apply the bagua to your desk, bed, or stove.

To apply the bagua to your home, align the bottom edge with the wall your front door is in. Even if you usually enter your home through the garage or a back or side door, always align the bagua to the front door. Now, stretch (or shrink) the bagua to an individual room, do the same thing: align the bagua with the doorway wall, and adjust the size to fit the space. As you stand in the doorway facing into the space, kun gua (relationships) is always to the far right. If there is more than one way to enter a space, orient the bagua to the most prominent entryway. If the entries are equal, choose the one that is more frequently used. to cover your entire space.

The bagua for each floor above or below the main floor is aligned to where you enter that level from the top (for higher floors) or bottom (for lower floors) of the stairs. Sometimes there will be a wall directly in front of you at the top or bottom of the stairs, and you will need to turn to the right or left before you are facing into the space.

The BaGua Energy Map

The bagua (ba: eight; gua: area) is a map of the energetic world. It is traditionally shown as an octagon with eight sections surrounding a central area, the tai chi. The qualities of each outer sector are represented by a trigram composed of solid (yang) and/or broken (yin) lines.

To make it easier to apply this energy map to your space, we extend the corners of the bagua to form a square, then divide it into nine equal sections:

fengshui_bagua

The bagua divides any space into nine areas. Each area corresponds to a different aspect of your life. Whatever is going on energetically (good or bad) in that part of your space will affect the related aspect of your life (see diagram below).

Align the bottom edge of the bagua with the wall the door is in. Stretch the bagua sideways or lengthwise to cover the entire space. The door or entryway will always be in ken, kan, or chien gua, although it may overlap more than one gua. As you stand in the doorway facing into the space, hsun gua is always at the far left; kun gua is always to the far right, and li gua is always at the center of the wall opposite you.

If there is more than one way to enter a space, orient the bagua to the main door or entryway. Even if you usually enter your home through the garage, align the bagua of your home to the front door.

Every space has a bagua. There is a bagua for your plot of land, a bagua for your house, and a bagua for each room within your home. You can even apply the bagua to your desk, bed, or stove.

The bagua is rich with meanings and associations. The most important meanings of each gua are shown below:
