Why and how to enhance the Career Gua in this Year of the Tiger #Tipoftheweek Episode 30


Welcome to another Episode of The Tip of The Week. This time I recorded this #tipoftheweek on the day I was celebrating Chinese New Year with friends - hence me wearing this bright pink shirt. My friend's dress code home party was red, gold or pink.

And since the celebrations for the Year of the Tiger have started this week, what best way to start this new lunar year by talking about Feng Shui enhancements you can do for this Water Tiger Year. So yes, this week we're talking Feng Shui again.

I'm always a curious about astrology, and seems like most zodiac signs are having significant things happening in their career - which for me it makes sense, since I personally feel this year might mark our way out of this pandemic.

And when I realized this was a Water Tiger Year I understood the connection, as the Tiger is a symbol of courage and bravery and being a Water Tiger year, it is highlighting the Feng Shui area that is ‘ruled’ by that element - and that happens to be the career area! So that means this is a year for risk-taking in the career area. Be brave out there! 😉

So where is the career area located? If you look at the Bagua map (on my post from last week) you can see that the career area is the number 1 Gua, and if you follow the BTB Feng Shui, you're going to align the Career area with your entrance door, as I explained last week. If you follow the Eastern Feng Shui, then you'll need a compass to determine where the North area of your floor plan is - the best way would be for you to use the compass in the middle area of your home.


The colors for the Career Gua are black and navy blue, so this year you should focus on those colors and especially where your career area is. And if you want to do some decoration with more colors, you can also use the supporting colors in this palette.

Another thing that you can do is to use certain objects to bring you luck in your career. One of my favorite symbols to use is an owl. The owl is a source of good luck, wisdom, knowledge and protective energies. The ancient Chinese philosophy also regards the Owl as a powerful totem to attract prosperity and abundance.
