your feng shui lucky color & how to use it to attract good luck & good fortune!
While everything you do in your home to create good feng shui will also create good energy and good fortune, one thing you can do to enhance that luck even more is use your feng shui lucky color!
Colors have energy of their own and can completely change how you feel, think, and act when you encounter them.
Think about it: do you have a certain color that you LOVE and a certain color that you hate?
Do you have a certain color that, if you wear it, makes you feel like a million bucks or like you could take on the world?
That is the energy of color at work!
In feng shui, each person has a color that is considered lucky – one that draws good luck and good fortune.
Your feng shui lucky color corresponds to your feng shui birth element, which means you have a set of colors that nourish you, a set of colors that are magnetic for you, and a set of colors that can potentially deplete your energy.
These colors reflect the element cycle and are either nourishing or destructive.
Here’s how to find your feng shui lucky color!
To find your feng shui lucky color, first you need to find your feng shui birth element.
Your feng shui birth element corresponds with the year you were born (but also, the feng shui calendar is the lunar calendar, which means each year starts on a different day. If you were born in January or February, your Chinese birth year might not be the same as your traditional, Western birth year. Click here to figure out when your feng shui birth year is!)
Metal: Birth year ends in 0 or 1
Water: Birth year ends in 2 or 3
Wood: Birth year ends in 4 or 5
Fire: Birth year ends in 6 or 7
Earth: Birth year ends in 8 or 9
Now that you know your feng shui element, you can figure out your feng shui good luck colors!
If your element is metal, your lucky colors are: whites, silvers, and grays
If your element is water, your lucky colors are: blues and blacks
If your element is wood, your lucky colors are: greens and browns
If your element is fire, your lucky colors are: reds, oranges, magentas, and purples
If your element is earth, your lucky colors are: yellows and beiges
Your feng shui lucky colors are those that make you feel powerful and will best support your feng shui elemental energy. These colors draw good luck and good fortune to you like a magnet!
Your feng shui elemental energy also tells you which colors nourish you and replenish you.
These are the elements (and colors) that support your energy.
If your element is metal, the colors that support and nourish you are: yellows and beiges
If your element is water, the colors that support and nourish you are: whites, silvers, and grays
If your element is wood, the colors that support and nourish you are: blues, blacks, and earth tones (yellows and beiges)
If your element is fire, the colors that support and nourish you are: greens and browns
If your element is earth, the colors that support and nourish you are: reds, oranges, purples, and magentas
Because your lucky colors are related to your feng shui element, that means there are colors that you should avoid, because they can have a negative effect on your energy.
These are different for everyone because each element has an element that is considered destructive or extinguishing.
Here are the colors you should avoid if you’re trying to attract more luck and good fortune:
If your element is metal, avoid these colors: reds, purples, oranges, magentas, blues, and blacks
If your element is water, avoid these colors: yellows and beiges (earth tones), greens, purples, reds, and magentas
If your element is wood, avoid these colors: reds, purples, oranges, whites, silvers, and grays
If your element is fire, avoid these colors: blues, blacks, yellows, and beiges (earth tones)
If your element is earth, avoid these colors: grays, silvers, whites, and blues
What if a color that you love is one that you should be avoiding according to feng shui?
It is important to realize that feng shui is a guide, but it’s not a rule that can never be broken!
Also don’t forget that the tones, shades, and hues of colors are different depending on how they are mixed.
For example, there are “red purples” and “blue purples,” so chances are good that a color you really love can still work for you!
How do you use your feng shui lucky color to attract good fortune?
First, you can decorate your home with it!
If it’s a bright color, consider adding it as an accent color – pillows, curtains, and decorative accessories can be amazing for this!
You can also consult the bagua (the feng shui map of your home – click here to see it!) to find out the most powerful area of your home to put your lucky color.
Second, you can wear it!
If you need extra luck for certain events, wear your lucky color!
You can buy a special necklace or pair of earrings, a shirt in your lucky color, paint your toenails, or even wear colorful undergarments!
The color doesn’t have to be visible in order to draw more good fortune to you.
Third, buy yourself a new wallet or purse in your lucky color!
If you do this, don’t forget to feng shui your wallet or purse to add even more good luck to your money and wealth! (Click here to see how to feng shui your wallet and purse!)
Fourth, paint your front door!
If you love your lucky color (or don’t really have a preference for your front door color,) painting your front door and creating a welcoming entrance is a HUGE fortune attractor in feng shui!
Your front entrance is extremely important in attracting luck, new opportunities, and abundance, so using your lucky color here will give you an added manifestation boost!
You can also use your lucky color in accents on your front porch – flowers, flower pots, or a welcome mat can all attract more wealth and luck! (Click here to read more about how to feng shui your front door!)
Fifth, use your lucky color at work!
Line your desk drawers, buy colorful office accessories, or even a pen in your lucky color!
Your office and workspace is another area that is important for attracting luck and wealth, since your desk area is usually where you work, pay bills, or do other administrative tasks.
Using your feng shui lucky color here can be a great way to attract more luck and good fortune to your career and family’s abundance.
What if you hate your lucky color?
The MOST important thing in feng shui is that you LOVE your home and life.
If you hate your lucky color (say your element is earth, and you hate yellow and beige) DON’T USE IT!!
Don’t wear it or decorate with it!
Instead, you can add it somewhere that you don’t see it — line your drawers with it, tape colored paper under furniture, put a piece of colorful paper in your wallet — come up with creative ways you can use it without it being visible. Intention counts most!
If you really, truly don’t want to use your personal good luck color at all, you can also use the feng shui lucky color of the year instead!
What is the feng shui lucky color for 2020?
Along with your personal feng shui lucky color, each year also has its own colors that attract good fortune!
2020 is the Year of the Rat in the Chinese zodiac, and its lucky colors are white and blue.
The same rules apply when using these colors: consider wearing them or adding them to your home in some way to attract good luck!
If you really don’t like your personal lucky color, using the yearly lucky color can be an awesome substitute.
