Fireplace and Fireplaces in Feng Shui

Fire and Fireplaces in Feng Shui

The fire element in feng shui will bring excitement, passion, spontaneity and a better reputation if handled correctly, but if mishandled it can create too much energy for people to relax, arguments and even a risk of fire. Because fire also symbolizes income in feng shui, taking a look at where your home’s fireplace is positioned can help increase your cash flow.

The best location for a fireplace is in the North-East. This will warm up the cold yin energy of the north and also feed off the fire-compatible soil energy of the North-East. The next-best positions for a fireplace include East, South-East and the South-West. In fact, there is a nice opportunity here because these directions are all good for living rooms as well, and a fireplace is typically the focal point of a living room, the one thing you see first as the primary anchoring element of the room. People also naturally gather around a fireplace, especially on chilly winter nights, and a crackling fire can a be a good way to lure people out of their rooms to share in some family time.

While the directions near true South are good for fireplaces, be very careful about having a fireplace in the South part of the house (which also happens to be a good place for very active living rooms) because then you will have focused too much fire energy in this part of the house and you will be risking a real, uncontrolled fire. If you do have a fireplace in the South part of your house, or even in the South side of a room, you can diminish its influence by adding a water element. Water does not have to be exactly water — anything black or blue, with wavy lines or anything made of glass can embody the water element and tone down your fire a bit. A nearby bathroom will offer some water energy, too.

If your fireplace is not in any of these directions there are a number of things you can do to make up for the misplacement. Putting a large mirror up across the room from the fireplace will double the fire energy, and also gives you the ability to have a second “fire” coming from the direction you would have wanted the fire to come from. Another excellent way to support and “kindle” the fire element is to add the wood element. In feng shui, fire energy is supported by wood energy, so adding large plants and even keeping chopped wood next to the fireplace will stoke the energetic flames as well.

If you have no fireplace at all, or there is no way to position a mirror to reflect a fireplace from the position you want, do not fear. Candles are excellent substitutes for a fireplace, as are lanterns, bright lights and oil lamps. In feng shui, the actual elements are also represented by shapes, colors, patterns and materials, so you don’t even need to use an actual flame — anything with pointy angular edges will work, like star shapes. Anything red or purple will also help.
