Urban Feng Shui

tree_front2Big tree” here means trees with a 12 inches or 25 cm or larger diameter trunk.

Some city governments, like Toronto in Canada, specifies home builders to plant a tree in front of the main door of each new house.  After 10 years or so, these small trees become big trees with serious Feng Shui implications.


Below are some notes taken from “Advanced Visual Form Feng Shui” manual:

  1. A tree in front of the main door is called “heart piercing sha” or “tree god blocks road” is very bad Feng Shui.  It stands for blockage in life and illness like liver problems.
  2. If there is a tree in the left side of the main door, it is called “green dragon tree“.  It stands for protection, nurturing and male helpful people/ mentors.
  3. If there is a tree in the right side of the main door without a corresponding sized tree in the left side, it is called “white tiger tree“.  It stands for dominant women in the house, negative peach-blossom (mistress) or unwelcome female guests.
  4. Tree located in front of main door resonates with residents inside the house. If branches has problem, someone inside the house will have hand or tendon problem.  If the tree trunk has problem, resident’s body may have corresponding problem.  If the trunk is drilled a hole, someone in the house will have surgery or bleeding ulcer.
  5. Seeing willow trees in front of main door— residents are likely to have mental problems.
  6. Dying trees in front of main door—stands for blood related sickness, especially bleeding ulcer.
  7. Trees near windows should not have branches growing into or touching the windows– this may cause eye problems to the residents.
  8. Tree touching the roof of a house– moving-in guests do not want to leave.

Note: The following was written on April 22, 2004

About 10 years ago, the MGM Casino in Las Vegas had a big entrance that was shaped like the mouth of a lion.

Eventually, the casino took the mouth down as Asian customers, esp. Chinese, do not like the idea of walking into the mouth of a lion, implying losing big to the casino.

Chinese are known to be big “whales” there.

When I was in Hong Kong last month, there is a building entrance (see enclosed photo) shaped like the mouth of a monster– 2 sharp silver color teeth at the door and 2 while eye balls on top (Rhino mouth and crab eyes combined?).

However, people do not seemed to notice it. Even my relative who works nearby was shocked when I told him the entrance looks like a giant mouth.

The section of the street is in Monkok’s second busiest cross-junction, with traffic (people/car flow) comparable to that of New York’s Time Square. The real estate price there is probably within the top 5 of the most expensive land in the world.

So how do the businesses fare in that building? According to my relative, businesses inside that building come and go pretty quick due to slow traffic.

So do people subconsciously feel walking into the mouth of a monster and avoiding going inside? Or is the “earth luck” (di yun) of the building expired?

I took a luopan reading outside the entrance. The degree is not that bad.

I went into the building. Most businesses were not opened even it was a weekday afternoon. But the “qi” inside was pretty stagnant.

Amazingly, there is a Feng Shui practitioner there who does everything (date selection, Feng shui, face/palm reading, divination, naming…..). But apparently he forgot to Feng Shui his office before moving in.

I walked around the building and eventually find out the reason– the building is on a void-line.

As to how I find out the void line, it will be discussed in my classes.

You may search my blog here on void line for some explanations.
