The luck of clear thinking and the ability to make good decisions is the domain of the northeast sector. It is also the corner of education and contemplation. Activating this corner is beneficial for thinking, wisdom, and learning. Unlike the northwest that rules the head, it’s the northeast that rules the mind.
Having luck here means that you are thoughtful, make good decisions, and make the most of your intelligence.
The northeast corner relates to how far your go in education, steps you take to learn more in life, and how you grow intellectually and spiritually.
In fact, the northeast corner could also be called the personal growth corner.
That’s because of its ability to help us direct our lives according to our highest good, and only with clear-eyed vision and thinking is that possible.
It’s also the corner that relates to the hands. In school, a teacher often focuses on the eye-hand coordination of the student which is a sign of intellect, and often why musicians are often mathematically inclined. When the education corner is enhanced, learning becomes something that’s enjoyed and relished.
When there is pain in the wrist or hands, there can be problems with concentration.
Often when a major decision is put off, someone may injure their hands or break their wrist. Adding bracelets, especially red-colored ones, is helpful for aiding concentration.
Learning and acquiring knowledge and understanding is one of the best ways we have for improving our spiritual selves and growing as people and becoming a fulfilled person. When activated, the northeast is helpful for promoting luck in scholastic or educational pursuits as well as for luck when taking exams.
The northeast sector is the corner that represents the youngest son.
For households that have young children, enhancing the luck of the northeast corner will help them with school and will stimulate their interest in learning. Children should study in the northeast corner of the house or living room to help make their minds sharp and to promote test-taking luck.
The northeast corner relates to young men and is the ruling direction for the Period of 8.
Since 2004, when feng shui entered the Period of 8, young men have come to the fore for the technological advances they have made. Superstars like Mark Zuckerburg is just one of those young men who turned a college project into a multi-billion dollar-a-year business, and all before he turned 30.
The northeast favors young men who are bold and who have an idea that they bring to fruition. This is also the corner of the sign of the ox. The ox is a steadfast sign whose motto is “prosperity through perseverance.”
The “stick-to-it-tivenss” of the northeast and the ox zodiac sign is one of the northeast corner’s best qualities.
If the northeast corner is missing, there will be an inability to make decisions or thinking will be impacted. If this corner is missing, adding a large boulder to the garden will anchor and symbolize the missing energy from the northeast corner. In this portion of the house or the living room, home office, or desk, adding crystals here will help to enhance this corner and the luck of the northeast.
The northeast is symbolized by small earth, the square shape, and the deep yellow ochre color.
Earth-related elements are excellent energizers for the northeast corner of the home. Boulders in the garden are a nice touch for adding wisdom luck. The fire element is also regarded as auspicious for enhancing meditation, education, thinking, and wisdom.
Fire is the producing element to the northeast corner so by adding candles, lamps, and red colors in this corner, you will help to provide protective and supporting energy to young students and young men of the house and keep your thinking sharp.
In the northeast corner of the garden, consider adding a rock garden or a Japanese-style garden with raked gravel or stones. It’s a peaceful and contemplative look that will enhance your personal growth and decision-making. Even placing some nice stones in your garden will enhance this corner.
The northeast relates to the number 8.
This is the number of small earth energy. It’s helpful to have an image of mountains, earth, maps or countries in this corner or placing a vase or other crystal objects in this corner. Adding nine objects here helps to promote the luck of the northeast because nine is the number of fire, small earth’s producing element.
If you wish to aid concertation in study or meditation, try adding a small candle where you are working (this is especially helpful for writers and researchers), or a crystal point.
The fire element is enhancing so this is favored for aiding with writing and research luck. You can also add maps, globes, and images of famous thinkers like Albert Einstein.
When you’re looking for personal fulfillment and wisdom, be sure to accent your northeast corner with earth and fire elements, like red colors. Or, wear red bracelets on your hands, or even red nail polish!
What to avoid in the northeast.
The northeast direction is drained by wood and metal. When there is excess metal in the northeast, it can result in arthritis of the hands or problems with indecisiveness.
Having too many plants and flowers in the northeast corner of your home can also harm one’s ability to think, make good decisions, or concentrate.
Avoid having large wood or metal objects in this corner of the house so that you are able to think clearly and make choices that are the most helpful for you.
When you have cloudy thinking or a tendency to spin wheels in your head versus being able to think clearly and move forward in life, give the northeast corner some attention with a bright lamp, candle, and crystals.
You will find your thinking will clear and feel like you’re making spiritual and personal progress again.
