Make 2020 an auspicious year for you, even if you’re not born in the Year of the Rat!
One of the simplest ways to strengthen your luck this year is to make sure that your lucky colour dominates your surroundings, whether it’s the clothes you wear or the colour of your interior design.
But do you even know what your lucky colour is this year?
Before we get to that, let’s understand why lucky colours are important in Chinese culture in the first place.
Significance of lucky colours in feng shui
According to this article from World Of Feng Shui:
“The Chinese believe that colours resonate with particular frequencies that have different strengths and affinities from year to year. In Chinese metaphysics, there are five main colours which signify the five elements, the five planets and the five directions – North, South, East, West and Center. Different homes have different colour affinities, and different personalities vibrate better with certain colours in different years.”
There are five main colours that represent the five elements. They are:
- Red - Fire: Luck, Happiness, joy, vitality, celebration, fertility
- Yellow - Earth: Power, royalty, prosperity
- Black - Water: Stability, knowledge, trust, adaptable
- White - Metal: Wealth and financial success, purity, peace
- Blue - Wood: Trust, honesty, loyalty, healing
