All About the Classical Feng Shui Bagua (Home or Office)


Definition: Feng shui bagua (also called ba-gua or pakua) is one of the main tools used in feng shui to analyze the energy of any given space, be it home, office or garden. Basically, bagua is the feng shui energy map of your space that shows you which areas of your home or office are connected to specific areas of your life.

Translated from Chinese, Bagua literally means "8 areas."

It is important to understand that there are two different ways, or schools used to define the bagua of any space.

There is the Classical, or Traditional feng shui school bagua, and then there is the BTB, or Western feng shui school bagua. It is best not to apply both at the same time.

Once you have the compass reading and the floor plan of your space, you can easily define the bagua. This will show you the location of different feng shui areas in your home or office. Each of the 8 feng shui areas, or directions, has a specific feng shui element, feng shui color, as well as life area connected to it.
