In the modern age, cars have made the world much smaller. Most households today have at least one car, so it is useful to know just how the mere presence of cars can affect your feng shui. Cars are made of metal therefore they hold metal energy in abundance. So what does this have to do with feng shui?
Cars are an excellent source of Yang Metal energy and when used daily, the yang energy is activated regularly. And by knowing in which sector your garage is placed within your home, this can tell you whether your cars will bring you good or bad luck when parked in your garage. To analyze what a car does to the energy of a sector, look at how metal energy interacts with the intrinsic element of the corner. For instance, if your car porch is located in a wood sector (SE or E), your car’s metal Chi will destroy the wood energy of the sector. If located in the fire sector (S), your car could give you no end of problems, since fire destroys metal.
If you are however not so lucky as to have your car porch in the “correct” sector of your home, do not worry, as there are many cures and enhancers you can use to either fix the imbalance of elements, or to further activate and enhance the sector in question.
NORTHWEST (Metal - Mentor Luck)
The Northwest sector of your home governs the luck of finding mentors. Mentors are generally strong people who can advise and guide you along your career. If this sector is afflicted, the mentors in your life bring you more harm than good. However, if your car is located in this sector, you will find that you have good mentor luck, because the metal energy of the sector is well activated here. To further enhance you mentor luck, place a picture of your mentor in this sector of your living room.
SOUTH (Fire - Fame & Recognition Luck)
If your car porch is located in the South, the metal energy of the car clashes with the element of the sector, where fire destroys metal. Because of this, your car may have a tendency to break down. You should buy a car with an extremely good record of reliability and remember to renew your AAM membership. Or you could park your car outside the house and turn your car porch into a brightly lit garden. Another alternative is to respray your car a bright red, so the car is not adversely affected by its parking lot.
WEST (Metal - Family & Descendants Luck)
If your car porch is located in the West sector of your home, this will bring you plenty of descendants luck. The West sector governs the luck of children and is ruled by the element of metal. If it is activated with your garage located here, you may be getting ready to welcome a newborn into your home! For families with kids, parking your car in this sector will help ensure that your children grow up filial, obedient and a credit to the family name.
EAST (Wood – Health Luck)
The East sector governs the health luck of the occupants of the home and if it is afflicted, occupants will get sick easily. If you park your car in this sector, the metal energy of the car destroys the wood energy of the sector. You should thus place a water feature here to strengthen the wood energy. Water feeds wood, while exhausting metal energy at the same time. For your health, place a Wu Lou tied with red thread next to your bed to avoid sicknesses that is caused by the unbalanced Chi of the sector. You should paint your car either green or blue to enhance this sector.
NORTHEAST (Earth - Knowledge & Education Luck)
If your car is parked in the Northeast sector of the home, this will exhaust the education luck of the home. You will find it hard to ascend in your career and for those who are still studying, there will be many obstacles. To remedy this, place crystals in this sector to enhance knowledge luck. Place a water feature here to exhaust the metal energy. Paint your car yellow to further cure and enhance this sector.
NORTH (Water – Career Luck)
If your car porch is located in the North sector of your home, it is considered favorable, because North is a water sector, and metal produces water thereby strengthening the energy of the sector. You should place a water feature in this sector to tap the Career luck brought by this sector. You can also paint your car blue to further activate career luck for family members.
SOUTHEAST (Wood – Wealth Luck)
The Southeast is a wood sector and is in conflict with any metal energy present in that sector. The SE sector of the home governs the wealth of the family. If this sector is weakened, the wealth prospects of the family will be affected. To cure this, place plants in this sector to strengthen the wood energy here and a water feature to exhaust the metal energy that emanates from the car. You can also paint your car blue or green, as these colors harmonize better with the SE.
SOUTHWEST (Earth - Love & Romance Luck)
If your car is parked in the Southwest sector of your home, this will exhaust the love luck of the home. To remedy this, place natural crystals in this sector to enhance and activate the love sector and place a water feature here to exhaust the metal energy. Place a pair of mandarin ducks in the Southwest sector of your home to enhance love luck. And display six crystal balls in the center of your living room to maintain harmony in the household. Paint your car red or yellow to further cure and enhance this sector.
