Not everybody celebrates Christmas in the same way but everybody who celebrates Christmas has a Christmas tree so let’s kill two birds with one stone and locate the Christmas tree in the best place.
In Chinese culture the evergreen pine tree is a symbol of longevity. Chinese believe that there is no good luck without a long life that is why longevity is one of the most important life aspirations and one of the purposes of good feng shui.
There are different ways to support our life aspirations and the most basic one is to display symbols of good fortune. In this case the symbol is our beloved Christmas tree that is the same as the evergreen pine tree, and the location is the longevity sector in our house or living space.
Every dwelling has a longevity sector, check out the table below to locate yours based on your house facing direction. For instance, if your house faces West the longevity sector is Southeast and that is where your Christmas tree should be.
House Facing Longevity Sector - Christmas Tree Location North North Northeast Northwest East Northeast Southeast Southwest South South Southwest West West Southeast Northwest East
Longevity Sector - Christmas Tree Location
If using your Christmas tree to boost your longevity doesn’t appeal to you, how about using it to enhance love?
The Christmas tree belongs to the Chinese element wood and could be represented by a star known as star 4. Star 4 symbolizes love and academic success and it becomes stronger when it combines with star 1 that belongs to the Chinese element water.
Additionally, star 4 has special connections with star 9 and with star 6 and these connections imply personal relations.
During the month of December 2016 star 1 and 9 are present in some way in the Southeast and stars 6 and 1 are present in another way in the North. If we add star 4 the result is nothing less than increased love! If you prefer love than longevity place your Christmas tree in any of those two sectors: North or Southeast. And if any of those sectors happens to be your house longevity location, rejoice, you will be killing three birds with one stone. H a p p y H o l i d a y s !
