Where Is the Feng Shui Money Area?

Where is the Feng Shui Money Area? When you search for “Feng Shui money area” you get millions of hits. Unfortunately, most information regarding this topic is wrong.

I ran such a search before writing this article. I actually took the trouble, for your sake, to click on the links on the first two pages of results, to see what kind of information you might find if you searched for this – roughly 20 sites, including about 5 videos.

Guess what? All the links I checked, except for one, were wrong.

I was not surprised.

They Were Confusing Money with Wealth

They were naming the wealth area of the home as the money corner” in the home.

Money feeds wealth, but money does not equal wealth.

It is crucial to know this to make sure that you enhance both money and wealth appropriately in your home.

Most people confuse money with wealth, and most Feng Shui consultants and teachers out there actually use the terms money and wealth interchangeably. This is incorrect.

Later in this article, I will tell you where the location of the money area really is in your home.

Let me start with the term Feng Shui.

It’s in the Meaning of Feng Shui!

Many people do not know this, but one of the symbolic meanings of Feng Shui is “Wealth and Money.”

Feng means wind. Shui means water.

???? Wind is part of the wood element (an element represented by the healthy living tree or forest).

???? Water is part of the water element.

???? Wealth works with the wood element because wealth behaves like a healthy tree.

???? Money works with the water element because money behaves like flowing water.

???? Wood and ???? water are separate elements, with very different characteristics.

Money Does Not Equal Wealth

Money feeds wealth just as water feeds trees, but money does not equal wealth.

???? Wood grows, crooked or straight. Wealth naturally grows (always, unless you actively do something to destroy it), but it can grow “crooked” (illegally or unethically) instead of straight.

???? Money soaks and goes down. Money gets spent and it goes down in value, unless you know how to invest it well (careful investments, where due diligence has been made, make money grow, turning money into wealth, like nature turns water into wood).

Don’t Confuse Money with Wealth!

Confusing money with wealth is the essence of greed.

If, when a person imagines being super wealthy, they visualize tons of money, they do not really understand what wealth is.

Wealth is the accumulation of 3 things:

  1. Accumulation of material possessions, especially land, real estate, and machinery that can produce goods.
  2. Accumulation of skills and talents.
  3. Accumulation of connections.

Money can help you purchase material possessions, yes, but it cannot guarantee that those purchases are sensible, or that they will appraise in the future, growing your wealth.

Money can also help you get education or training, but it cannot on its own give you skills or talents.

Money can get you into circles where you may meet with people who may help you, but money alone won’t give you the social skills to turn superficial acquaintances into true connections, friendships and collaborations.

Where is the Feng Shui Money Area?

I hope you read the whole article – because this is good information that you need to know – and didn’t just speed-scroll to this part.

The real true area for money in Feng Shui, is the Career, Life Mission and Individuality Area, located in the middle of the wall that contains the main entrance.

As you can see, there is actually no “money corner” because the life area related to money is not located in a corner, but in a midpoint of the Bagua Map.

Money is very important in life, because it is the representation of human work and the exchange of that work.

One of the easiest ways to enhance money in the money area, is to add a symbol of water. One of the most common images to add to this area is a waterfall.

An Inexpensive Cure for Money

A very inexpensive cure you may use is this magnet. If your money area happens to be in the foyer of your home and your front door has a metal door, you can just place this waterfall magnet on the door, on the side that faces the inside of the home.

  1. Moni, you are the ultimate feng shui disambiguator! And it works, too.

    Last spring, within a month of placing your cure (I chose the notebook), I got an offer for a new job, making more money, and with much more non-monetary value– practically out of the blue!

  2. Hi Moni, no I didn’t know that the money area is not in the wealth area!
    But now I do, so thank you for your article explaining the difference..
    My money area is is in the foyer of my home.
    Regards, Debra

  3. Ma’am,Moni,
    Good morning. You know I’m confused on how can I determine the Career Area (Money area as you said), because my house is two storey. And has two doors as entrance located at the ground floor ( 1.one for music room – located at Northeast and 2. And another door is leading to the second floor is located on the east- northeast). And the other door for the entrance at the second floor is located Southeast.

    Hoping for your help, please. Thank you.

  4. I have a rushing river picture that you said was good next to my front door but the entry into my house is the front right corner. The career area has a round side table with hidden storage and the love seat and part of the sofa. They are in an L shape. (only way to arrange my living room and is is pleasing to us) I have a folk art picture on the wall there with pictures of my kids flanking the windows above the sofa. I can only place a cure hidden on the floor by the side table or on the side table with the lamp in my career area. What would you suggest?

    • Annette, I can’t answer this question without looking at the floor plan or knowing more. This would need to be as part of a consultation.

  5. Would be nice to bring in more money…Our door is metal in the Career Area and opens towards and partly into the kitchen in the Helpful People Area. Our family uses the back door in the Fame Area. Most guests use the front door but some use the back since our driveway goes from front to back… I also need to get the Sun Cure magnet for the outside of the front door as well.

    • Am I correct in putting the magnet Sun cure on the front door when both front and back door are almost equally used? Or is there another remedy for this? Also our Career area is not missing but by placing the Waterfall magnet on the inside of the door would help to bring in more money, yes?

      • Angela, your front door is your main door unless it’s never used. There are two sun cures. If you mean the sun bagua cure that replaces the bagua mirror, yes, that goes on the front door on the outside. The waterfall magnet goes on the inside of the front door to create an environment more conducive to abundance, including abundance of money.
