The southeast sector is one of feng shui’s most favored corners of the bagua. Called the wealth sector, this corner is related to money you save such as investments, and the money you grow. Money for these purposes is often linked to IRA’s, 401Ks, and other investments. This sector’s about the growth of prosperity and new ways to earn money.
The southeast corner relates to money you want to save, invest, and grow for the future.
This is also the area that relates to the oldest daughter. It also pertains to the hips and upper legs and buttocks on the body. Its season is late spring.
When the southeast corner is afflicted, you may have difficulty accruing money.
Because this is the prosperity and wealth sector, it’s important that the southeast is bolstered with water symbols and elements.
That’s because the southeast is the sector of small wood. Its bright green color is similar to the new leaves that bud from a tree or a small flower. It is the seed of growth, something that we wish our money to have in it.
The quality of the southeast corner’s luck influences the ability to grow your assets and create new sources of prosperity.
Wealth and money that come into the house is important, but it is the money and income that stays in the home, that over time grows larger, that really matters.
This corner relates to the ability to find and cultivate existing and new sources of income and wealth. To add more earning potential, activate this corner to develop new streams of revenue.
Having a sizable investment or savings account means you have more financial ability to withstand difficulties and that you will be able to take care of yourself in your older years, and perhaps, have money to pass along to your heirs.
The southeast is symbolized by wood, the rectangle shape, and light green color, like the new leaves on a plant or tree.
Water-related elements are excellent energizers for the southeast corner of the home. An aquarium is an excellent activator for the southeast corner as is a fountain.
In particular, three-level or six-level fountains bring additional prosperity luck. Make sure that any fountain shows a source of water, such as a spout, and that there is a place to see the water accumulate.
Although popular now, the disappearing fountain is a type of fountain that flows down a vessel, such as a large urn, and then appears to run into rocks. This symbolizes water (money) lost rather than being captured (saved or accrued).
For this reason, disappearing fountains are not favorable for feng shui purposes.
What to avoid in the southeast.
The southeast direction is exhausted by fire and destroyed by metal. Adding metal or red colors in this corner of your home, garden, or living room can harm opportunities for money luck to enter your life.
If this is the location of your kitchen or fireplace, add images of water here to help assist the growth potential in the southeast.
Metal in this corner can create a drain on finances and strain the relationship with the oldest daughter in the household.
The southeast relates to the number 4.
This is the number of the wealth sector and oldest daughter. Although four is a homonym for death in Mandarin, it’s not a negative number. It’s a number signifying growth and reproduction.
Symbols such as fish, tortoise, turtles, and images of water are all beneficial in this corner of your home.
Flowers are an excellent energizer for the southeast sector as are a grouping of plants. Be sure to keep a nice garden in the southeast sector of your yard to help activate wealth and prosperity luck.
If you can add a water feature here, it’s even better. Lastly, green light makes a wonderful activator in this corner. Boost your wealth and prosperity by adding green objects or a green light to make opportunities to make money or improve your investments.
