(In a previous blog, I wrote how the direction of your front door can impact your life in that house.)
The west represents the season of autumn and soft Metal energy.
If your house faces west, as mine does, the sunlight reaches hits your front door on a daily basis, but the light of the afternoon is much harsher and brighter than the early morning sun. One of my professors said that the sunlight is depleted of the positive chi, therefore the quality is not as embracing to the home as the East.
What the West Direction Symbolizes
However, the west is the area that represents completion -- as per the setting sun -- and the joy and satisfaction that we get when we complete projects. it is the satisfaction of a productive day.
The west also represents children and anything that we create. The west is a good direction to help spark inspiration and creativity. Happy occasions can be had in this house, with parties and lively entertainment.
How to Activate the West
To ensure the positive qualities of this house, have some Metal energy at the front door. Some ideas are to use the color of Metal, such as white, gray or gold or having something metal, such as the wrought iron railings at this house.
You can also incorporate the Earth Element, as Earth creates Metal in the Five Element cycle. The colors of yellow, beige, and brown as Earth colors. Also, soil and materials of terracotta and ceramic.
How to Tame Metal
If there is too much frivolity in your home home, you can add the Water Element here, such as a water feature, as Water tempers Metal.
