The Meaning of Green in Feng Shui
In feng shui, green represents the wood element.
The wood element is about growth, new beginnings, nature, and abundance!
It’s about expansion and fresh energy in all areas of your life.
Think about the growth of plants reaching towards the sun and how it feels to be connected to nature.
Green represents the health and vitality of lush, green plants.
Green is also associated with the family and legacy area of the feng shui bagua map.
The family and legacy area is associated with relationships in your extended family and community, as well as the legacy you leave behind in life.
Green activates this area and represents the growth and vitality of those relationships.

Family and Legacy Area
The family and legacy area is associated with your extended family, community, and the legacy you leave behind in life.
This area of the bagua is activated by the color green, which means it will increase growth and harmony in these areas of your life.
Add plants, pops of green, or even green crystals to this area to increase the health and strength of your relationships!
The health area of your home is associated with the health of everyone in your household.
Because green is associated with growth and vitality, adding green to your home’s health area will boost the physical, emotional, and mental health of everyone in your home!
House plants are especially great in the health area, so consider adding a lush plant with rounded leaves to this area.
Green in Different Rooms of Your Home
You can also add green to different rooms of your home to increase balance, positive energy, and create a calm and welcoming atmosphere. Some rooms where green will create good feng shui are:
