Free Module 2: Shapes & Form Feng Shui

Chapter 12: Types of Building


In general,  buildings with irregular or odd shapes are inauspicious. In addition, these buildings are a `nightmare' to architects and if the plot of land is too small, it is difficult to maximize space.

Go for symmetrical pieces of land or rectangular pieces of land. Note: Geometric shapes are auspicious only for large buildings.

Shapes of  Houses / Apartments: Missing Corners 

The shape of a house if it is protruding at a corner or if a section is `cut-out/indent' has implications on Feng Shui for the occupants depending on the direction of the protrusion or `cut-out/indent'.

Let's first look at shapes of houses with protruding corners at various compass directions:-

See illustration above. If the protrusion is at:-

1. North : Can easily make friends.

2. North-East : Enjoys doing Research and Development work.

3. East : Dare take calculated risks and is rather impatient.

4. South-East : Needs to work real hard.

5. South : Will enjoy good reputation.

6. South-West : Male members living in the house will be lazy while Females will be active.

7. West : One happy family.

8. North-West : Occupants likes a competitive environment.

Let's look at  shapes of houses with `cut-outs/indents' at various compass directions:-

See illustration above. If the `cut-out/indent' is at:-

1. North : Will meet with an accident.

2. North-East : Occupant will have poor planning.

3. East : Will be easily discouraged or suffer from low morale.

4. South-East : Daughters will not be successful in love affairs.

5. South : Will mix with bad company or be cheated.

6. South-West : Have constant bad luck.

7. West : Will frequently flirt around.

8. North-West : Will have frequent quarrels.

Do take note that if houses have too much protrusions or `cut-outs/indents' these  are equally no good. Usually the problems could range from illness for members of the family, business failures or frequent quarrels and  bad luck. 

Is there a cure for missing corners?

Yes! Here goes:-

1. Use mirrors on both sides of the wall to "increase it's depth".

2. If the  "cut-out or missing corner" is on the ground floor, do some landscaping by planting bushes to create an outline of the missing corner outside of the house. It is also good if you can place a lamp post at the edge/corner of the garden. 

Can you  identify the type of building?

..thank Cecil for this website... Cecil Lee Cecil Lee - Feng Shui at Geomancy.Net"When I first learnt about feng shui, I had no idea there was such thing as kindergarten FengShui and the true and proper form of feng shui. I have simply accepted that fact and have followed it step by step. I have learnt many things. It's encouraged me to bring my wellbeing desires forth. Feng Shui really does bring joy into our lives - IF we apply it correctly. FIRST by starting with yourself. How is it that we can gain strong health if we drink coffee, smoke and alcohol? How do we gain a stable financial account if we tend to spend money on things we really don't need in our lives. How can you gain knowledge and wisdom if you curse and criticise? So as you can see, if we want to take advantage of fengshui, then you, as yourself must change."

"When I took action to change myself, I also felt the desire to goto church. religion is like feng shui, there are kindergarten churches, and a true and proper form of church. As i joined the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; the only true and proper form of church on this earth. life has never been any better. I love it!! It feels as if I can take advantage of fengshui as well as live a happier life I have most desired for. It has brought many blessings into the home."

"Happiness is not within money or wickedness, but love and charity, it balances your life so it will bring forward a more better and stronger YOU!"

"I would like to thank Cecil for this website. I have followed Cecil's feng shui advice and have found them work for me."

"I hope this testimony will help all realise that fengshui will not work, if you plan to be lazy about it!!" All the best, Daniel, New Zealand
