The Fire Element and the Fame and Reputation Gua

Every room needs a little bit of the Fire Element to warm things up and set a really groovy mood. But like cayenne pepper, a little goes a long way especially when introduced to rooms outside of the Fame and Reputation Gua.  

Fire Qi for Passion and Recognition

Fire injects enthusiasm, motivation and spurts of energy. It warms and cheers. Fame and recognition are energized by the fire element. Recognition leads to success at the workplace and in politics.

Final Thoughts

The element of Fire is related to the color red and the feng shui bagua area of Recognition. Fire also has the qualities of explosiveness, passion and heartfelt compassion. Fire element creates earth, as ashes transform all back to the earth. Fire overcomes metal as it causes metal to melt into a liquid.

Fire is red and triangular in shape. In Feng Shui, fire elements improve passion and recognition. You can add fire into your home with the color red. I especially like using the Mars Yantra for fire adjustments. The fiery colors and triangles are fire element all the way!
