Feng Shui Office Tips for Your Desk

Unfavorable Desk Positions. Best to move the desk on the right in the top diagram 90 degrees clockwise with a wall behind and door to their left side.

What are Feng Shui office tips for your desk?

Feng Shui has become popularized to apply to all things, expanding its original purpose.  The following is a contemporary adaptation of classical Feng Shui concepts.

The location of the desk and chair are key factors for Feng Shui in the office.  Put your desk in the “Command Position” of the office. There are several layers to the Feng Shui power spot.  Today, we will talk about the desk location and what you see when you look up.

Are you in command of your space?  The first principle is to get the Yin Yang correct.  Have supportive and receptive Yin to your back and right side.  Have energetic and active Yang to your front and left side.  Door on your left is preferable.

 

The Feng Shui “Command Position” of the office desk is:

  • The spot furthest from the door is the “protected” location.  We perform better if we feel safe and supported at work.  Facing the yang side is positioning yourself to see what’s coming and grab those that are opportunities.
  • Having the grandest view of the entire room.  You can see everything in the room, especially the door.  This is in command of the space.
  • A solid wall behind the chair that gives proper support.  The back is the vulnerable Yin side.  Remember the concept, “I’ve got your back.”  It governs the quality of your relationships and health.  Hang a picture of a solid mountain or one that exudes  confidence, strength and integrity.
  • The door is in clear eye shot.  The door is the Mouth of Qi, where the active Yang energy penetrates.  Facing Yang places you in the optimum position to see, filter through, and capture the opportunities that are in perpetual existence.
  • Having the most active energy to your left while sitting (i.e. the door, window, street, noise, lots of activity or movement).  Entering your desk from the left (while sitting) is best.  This is the Yang side, associated with the active Male energy.  It influences material opportunities, incoming wealth and prosperity.  If you cannot place your desk in this position, place a CD player, TV or water fountain on your left, something that moves, generates activity or makes noise.
  • The right side is the receptive Yin side, associated with Female energy.  It is ideal for the right side (while sitting down) to be supported by a wall. Make it quiet, subdued and less active than the left.  This lends support to the qualities of nurturing, creativity and, personal development.  Place heavy pieces of furniture, earthen objects or a picture of mountains here.
  • In Feng Shui we do not distinguish one side as being better that the other.  They are interdependent and one exists because of the other.  Both are necessary to balance your sense of well-being.
  • The next level.  Learn what your Gua or Life Star # is place your desk in one of your good directions.  To find your gua and good directions go to this link http://bazi.masteryacademy.com/App/Basic/Bazi.aspx.
It is not easy to get all the components working correctly.  Do the best that you can.
.

All bad desk locations. The best option would be to take the desk in diagram #3 and move it clockwise 90 degrees. This would have a solid wall behind, the door to your active Yang left side and a solid wall to your receptive Yin right side. Never angle yourself into a corner #5. Or, have beams over head #6.

No Nos of the desk position:

  • Sitting with your back to the door is not good.  Your back to Yang energy is an obstructed view, creates obstacles to getting your work done, missed opportunities and increased politicking behind your back.  You are not facing the world that is happening around you.  Instead, you have your back to it.  You inadvertently miss what is happening around you.  If it can’t be helped, try to position the desk so the door is to your side or in your periphery vision.  The last option is to put a mirror in front of you so you can see what is behind you.
  • Do not sit in alignment with a door, two doors or between a door and window.  You end up sitting with yang on both sides of your body.  Over time, you will find your self feeling drained and tired.  This is because humans need a balance of activity and rest.  Constant bombardment of energy will deplete you.  Solutions – Move out of alignment of these configurations. Put a curtain or screen on your right side.  Keep one of the doors closed.
  • Do not sit facing a wall. Over time, you will begin to adapt the psychology of facing blockages and obstacles. Your mind does not work at its peak. You will miss out on opportunities and encounter obstacles in your work. Projects have difficulty getting off the ground and promotions are slow to come by. If it cannot be helped, use a mirror to reflect what is behind you. Try this experiment. Sit with your face to the wall. Look up and notice how it feels. Then turn around and look out. You will see and feel the difference! 

Facing a Wall is not optimum. Click for details.

  • If you cannot move your desk, hang a picture of scenery featuring an open field to symbolize your own personal “bright hall”.  Or hang an image in front of you to symbolize being faced with many opportunities.  This will help counter the negative effects of facing a wall, and will create reason for you to change desk to one with better feng shui.

 

Bad with window behind. Click for details

 

  • Do not sit with your back to a window.  This is too Yang and the backside is not supported by needed Yin energy.  Reposition yourself or use a curtain or screen behind you.
  • Sitting in alignment with the door or to too near a door, especially the front door is an unprotected and vulnerable location.  If the office lay-out means you are in that vulnerable spot, try to sit so you can see the door at all times and have a view of people approaching.  Make extra effort to have the necessary support symbols with you to counter the negative effects of such a desk location.  Create the circumstances to move your desk at the next opportunity!
  • Do not position your work desk so you are directly facing someone as it causes confrontational energies to build up between you.  Move your desk or chair to avoid this.

    1. What happens if our back is facing the back of someone in which that person our back is facing to is facing the wall at 45 degrees?

    2. What happens if we sit in which our left side is facing a smaller door at 45 degrees (not the main entrance to the office)?

    3. What happens if our desk is partially within the main entrance pathway but one side of it is 98% of the time closed?

    Thank you very much.

      Hi Tan Hsien-hann
      Here are me responses to your Qs.
      1. What happens if our back is facing the back of someone in which that person our back is facing to is facing the wall at 45 degrees?

      Look to see what room that corner is angled at. If it is an often used room, the person(s) using that room will be affected in years negative energy arrives in that compass sector. You can see the potential outcomes by integrating analysis of the year energy with the the Life Star of the person(s) and the energy of that sector. It would take a Feng Shui audit to get an accurate assessment.

      2. What happens if we sit in which our left side is facing a smaller door at 45 degrees (not the main entrance to the office)?
      If you see the door but are not directly in alignment of the door, you are ok. A door to your left is good. Better than to your right. Left is yang energy and it is in compliance with the Yin Yang to the body. When you say main entrance, I take it you mean the main door into your entire office?

      3. What happens if our desk is partially within the main entrance pathway but one side of it is 98% of the time closed?

      How much is partially? Is your body in alignment with the door? Alignment means the door is directly in front of you or to your side and you can see your body if you are outside the door. I do not understand 98% of the time, one side of it is closed. Please clarify.

  2. Tan Hsien-hann says:

    One more question,

    As I am working in an office with partition seperating between my colleagues etc.

    1. What happens if we are facing the door but with a small partician in front of us with the height of the partition at mouth level?

    2. What happens if our position is in a good position but with the partition at mouth level in front of us?

    3. Is the partition at mouth level able to block a yang energy from sitting at the pathway of doors?

    Thank you.

    • Patricia Lee says:

      Hi Tan Hsien-hann,

      Here are my answers to your Qs.

      As I am working in an office with partition seperating between my colleagues etc.

      1. What happens if we are facing the door but with a small partician in front of us with the height of the partition at mouth level?

      Does facing mean you are directly in front of the door or to the side of it and you can see it? If the former, you have a problem. If the latter, no problem. Move your chair so you do not sit directly in front of the door.

      2. What happens if our position is in a good position but with the partition at mouth level in front of us?

      By good position, do you mean one of the 4 good sector of you space or because of the flying stars? Please clarify.

      3. Is the partition at mouth level able to block a yang energy from sitting at the pathway of doors?

      Some, but the top of your head is hit. If there is little traffic coming from the door, not such a big problem. If heavy traffic, can you move your chairs? You will need to concerned with the years the doors energy is hit by negative stars like the 5 Yellow or 7 Stars.

  3. Ana says:

    Hi,

    In my office my desk has a similar position to #5 above “Never angle yourself into a corner #5”.Could you please let me know why that is considered bad feng shui? I actually placed my desk like that in order to be facing NE, one of my best directions. There is a wall on the right side to where I am sitting (S), and a window on my left (W).

    Also, what would you suggest for this year as cures and enhancers for getting a job promotion?

    Many thanks,
    Ana

    • Patricia says:

      Ana, A corner to your back traps the qi so cannot circulate. Circulation is necessary about the body. I take it you are a West group person as you are facing NE. You can put a tall plant with soft leaves or a solid tall triangular piece of furniture behind you.

      A job promotion is best supported by the Southwest and Northeast sectors. If your door or bedroom is located in these sectors, you get that support. Feng Shui represents 1/3 of your luck quotient. If your BaZi shows a job promotion, that is another 1/3. The final one third is your actions. Make sure the boss is aware of your value to the company or to him/her personally. Or learn a new skill to add to your tool box and create your own value.

  4. Ana says:

    I could also move my desk parallel to the South wall of my office (position like desk in diagram #5 rotated 45 degrees anti-clockwise). This way I will be sitting in the SW sector of my office, but not with a corner directly behind my back. Is this better? Shall I place a painting or something else in the N wall in front of me?
    How do I know when my BaZi indicates a job promotion? I am a water ox born in earth horse month and water snake day.

    • Patricia says:

      Ana, I’d have to do an analysis of your BaZi chart to tell. In general, a promotion shows when the Earth element shows up in the year for your chart. It is possible this year as there is earth element in the goat and the goal clashes on your year pillar which can “push” out a new boss which indicates a shift.

      What is your Gua #?

      Moving into the SW sector would enhance your chances.
      Are you in a SW or NE sector of the house? Or have a SW door into your home by chance? All those help.
      Hopefully you saw my post on about using Feb 23 to support your goals and were able to implement the recommendations.

      • Ana says:

        Thank you Patricia! I hope you are doing fine. In fact I am not working ftom home, but in an office building. The entry door to the building faces West, and so does the window of my office. My office door faces East. My Gua# is 6 and I am a West type person. I placed my desk so that I could sit in the SW/S of the room, facing North (wall), and to still be in a commanding position. Our company will be changing my rectangular desk to an L-shaped one, and also replace our light gray furniture with mostly black with brown coloured table. Could you please let me know what could be the best way to position my L-shaped table? Due to my bookshelves, my two options are 1) to place one side of the table against the South wall, and one facing the door in the East (corner in SE) or 2) place one side in front of the door in the east and the other facing again the North wall (corner facing NE). Grateful to have your advice.
        Kind regards,
        Ana

  5. Sue says:

    Hi Patricia,

    My current workstation is right at the corner of the main hallway (imagine a square and I’m right at the corner tip). Besides, there is this meeting room with its corner facing 45 degree directly at my workstation, which I believe its really bad.

    Now, I have a choice to move opposite of my workstation to avoid these corners but behind me there will be windows, a resting spot (two comfy chairs and a coffee table). Besides, the new direction that I will be facing is West. According to some fengshui advise, I will still be affected by the corners despite if I move opposite because my current workstation is not occupied. Also, the resting spot, even though no one actually sits there, will eventually symbolizes people talking behind my back.

    Kindly advise what should I do 🙁
    Also, which direction is suitable for me?

    • Patricia says:

      Sue, It is hard to tell without a diagram. Are you able to send me an accurate drawing (or close to it)? Pls show me what sector you are in. A corner aimed at you is not a good feature. Please show how that on the diagram. It is important what sector you are sitting and what degree your are facing when sitting.

      Facing West is negative this year, so do not do that.
      Look forward to your drawing.

  6. michelle says:

    Hello,
    Our office looks like diagram #3 with the exception of the door entrance on the wall across from the window and on the left side (so basically just shifting the entrance door to the 90 degrees). My fiancé and I have separate computers. Do we need two desks or can we share one ? If shared should we sit side by side? If two desks what do you suggest for placement of desks?

    • Patricia says:

      Hi Michelle, We place people toward their best direction based on their Gua#. If you are both the same gua, then it is ok to use one desk and sit side by side. If you have different guys, then I would place you in different directions.

  7. Wendhi says:

    My office space in our new home is in a ‘sunroom’ of sorts. 3 walls are all windows and the other wall is 2 french doors which take the entire 4th ‘wall’ it’s a tough spot to work with but the only space for our work area. Tips?!

    • Patricia says:

      Wendhi, Put something solid behind you that acts like a solid wall. Either a screen or cloth to cover the part that your back is to. Position yourself to face a good direction when sitting that matches your Gua#. One that allows you to also have the grandest view of what is in front of you. Like a birds eye view of the space. Basically it trying to get support for you back which is your yin side, face the yang side, but in a good direction that supports you personally.

  8. Tony says:

    Hi Patricia,

    I have my desk in my bedroom so I do not have much place. Behind my desk there is my closet. Can the closet be considered as a support like the wall?

    Thank you!

  9. Marie says:

    Hi Patricia,

    I love your tips. Thank you! I have four questions:

    1. Is Feng Shui applied to my desk or my cube. My wealth corner is different on my desk than it is in my cube.

    2. Also, I have no choice but to sit in a cube with a window directly behind me. I face a cubicle wall in front of me. What is the best fix for this? Should I place mirrors directly in front of me? (I’m afraid I will appear to be vain in the office..)

    3. I need to place file folders on a rack on my desk. Can you suggest a good place to put them?

    4. I read somewhere to put my desk phone in my wealth corner to generate calls (that will bring in money). However, on your diagram it shows to put the phone in the helpful corner. Is it still ok to put the phone in the wealth corner?

    Thank you kindly in advance!

    • Patricia says:

      Christie,
      1. Wealth corner is a western Feng Shui concept. I do not follow this method. Wealth in traditional FS is affected by the entry door and where it is located and what is outside the space. This is the source of qi. This is why we like to be facing in the direction of incoming qi vs it to our back. Wealth can be affected by what is in your Bazi chart for the year as well as how your desk is positioned in the room. The best wealth generating areas for the year are N#1, SW#2 or E#3.

      2. Put something solid behind you to buffer the window. Go ahead with the mirrors. Vanity is the least of your worries.

      3. The rack should not aim at your body,like a corner of hitting your body or head.

      4. Phone in the N, SW or E is best for 2015

    • Patricia says:

      Hi Marie,

      Answers to your Qs
      1. Is Feng Shui applied to my desk or my cube. My wealth corner is different on my desk than it is in my cube.

      Answer: The most important thing about your desk is that it faces your good direction. Classical FengShui does not follow the wealth corner concept. That is a westernized application of the classics. Its’ impact is more psychological vs. fengshui. If you however, want to still follow it, it is fine.

      2. Also, I have no choice but to sit in a cube with a window directly behind me. I face a cubicle wall in front of me. What is the best fix for this? Should I place mirrors directly in front of me? (I’m afraid I will appear to be vain in the office..)

      Answer: Close the shade when working. If possible, turn so the window is to your side vs your back. Put a mirror and who cares about vanity when your productivity is the concern.

      3. I need to place file folders on a rack on my desk. Can you suggest a good place to put them?

      Answer: It really is not a big deal where you put these. Just keep it neat.

      4. I read somewhere to put my desk phone in my wealth corner to generate calls (that will bring in money). However, on your diagram it shows to put the phone in the helpful corner. Is it still ok to put the phone in the wealth corner?

      Answer: In classical FengShui, we do not have a “wealth corner”. That is a western concept and has no roots in classical FS. The phone can however, be used to stimulate Qi by use and noise. In this case, you would put it in a sector where there is positive Qi to stimulate that. This you would need to know the annual energies so u can follow them. Generally, E, SE, SW are the sectors good for wealth generation in 2016.

  10. George says:

    Hi Patricia

    If the bedroom is next to a bathroom and the dining room, where is the best place to position the desk if the window is facing north.

    The south side wall is a built in cabinet. Is it alright to put the desk next to the wall that is besides the dining room since it is no good to put anything next to the bathroom wall.

    Which direction should the person face?

    Thank you.

    • Patricia says:

      George, it is best to face the yang energy so facing N is ok if you are an east group person. Otherwise you can put the desk sideways to the N window and be facing West or East. This way you use your personal good direction to face, for added support. Known as the good facing direction for your personal Gua# which is based on your year of birth. Google it and you should be able to find it.

  11. Francis says:

    I have moved into powerpostion. However, there is a record room in front of me ( I am facing to the record room). is it bad ? if yes what are the solutions available for me?

  12. La says:

    Hi Patricia,

    I’m moving to new office which have L shaped like boomerang against the corner. My back is to the door, and I am facing the wall. What Can I do? I don’t think my boss would let me change it. Thanks.

    • Patricia says:

      Red, Can reverse your desk so door is in front and wall to your back? If not put a larger mirror in front of you or on the wall you face so you can see what is behind you. Not ideal but better than what you have now. Over a long period of time, you might feel like obstacles get in the way and opportunities are hard to grab. As soon as another spot opens up, try to move.

      You can use your personal good direction to face, for added support. Known as the good facing direction for your personal Gua# which is based on your year of birth. Google it and you should be able to find it.

      • Egozoom says:

        Thank you Patricia. I have moved my desk facing door by break the desk into 2 sections. The one look like normal desk place in north corner with seat. I seat L shaped deskin southwest facing door (close to east). However, my desk where I seat is still long. Anyone who open door will see the desk. Is it ok? Or should I break that section and place in the south? Thanks.

      • La says:

        Thank you Patricia. I have break my desk into 2 sections. The normal looking one at the North corner with chair on the side. I seat behind L shaped in the Southwest corner and desk facing door (East). My computers are at the Wealth corner. However, the corner on the right over extend. Anyone who comes in will see the corner of the desk first thing. Is this ok? Or I can break that corner into smaller desk and place by the south. There are no windows in my office. Thanks.

  13. Alloy says:

    Hi Patricia,

    If my sitting desk is aligned to the door (but not facing, as to my right is a wall and the door is at far left side, but nothing in between, and I am facing the front as there is another half wall at my back – the other half is tinted window), is this position ok? (Brief sketch below)

    if not how can it be improved or putting any decorations to help? As there are other desks in the office and can’t really move around.

    • Patricia says:

      Put something solid behind you like a curtain or screen so there is not the division behind you if the wall/tinted window “splits” onto your body when you sit at your desk. Especially if you become aware there is gossip or relationship issues popping up or you find yourself suddenly unsupported.

      You can use your personal good direction to face, for added support. Known as the good facing direction for your personal Gua# which is based on your year of birth. Google it and you should be able to find it.

  14. Aims says:

    Hi my new work station has a full panel window at the back, it has a curtain though and a tall building right across the street. As we have continuous cubes as sour work station I do not have the option to move my desk, is there something I can do to get good fengshui on this new desk?

    Thanks!

    • Patricia says:

      Aims,
      Keep the curtain closed behind you when you sit at your desk. You can use your personal good direction for added support. Known as the 4 good facing direction for your personal Gua# which is based on your year of birth. Google it and you should be able to find it.

  15. kristina says:

    Hi Patricia,
    we have moved to small office a square shape. all our tables facing door. is it okay there is a 2 bookshelves blocking the door from our tables? we do this to have divider between small waiting area and office table. But we can see still see the door.

    • Patricia says:

      This is fine. It very important to be facing one of your good directions based on your gua number, derived from your year of birth. You may google this for details.

    • Patricia says:

      Kristina, depends on how tall the book shelves are. What is more important is that you are sitting in a good sector of the office that matches your gua number and facing a good direction that supports your.

  16. ET says:

    Thank yo for this forum. I appreciate the help.

    I will be moving to a new office soon. The door is in a NE wall, at the most southerly spot in the wall. The SW wall is in three roughly equal sections: a window at each side with a solid wall section between them. The other two walls are featureless. I plan to sit with my back at the NW wall, as far from the door as possible, facing the SE. I will have a view of the entire office, though one of the windows will be at my right. I will have solid wooden furniture between me and the window.

    Given my Gua # is 2 (KUN) and the window on my right, any suggestions or comments? I enjoy fair flexibility in positioning and great flexibility in accessories. I have no further choices in the furniture itself.

    • Patricia says:

      ET, if you know how to apply 8 Mansions, position yourself in a good sector in the office. Hopefully it is one of the West group sectors. That is ideal. Then place your desk so you face your Tian Yi direction if possible. Your Sheng Qi direction is the second choice. You can find this on line how to do it. Or buy Joey Yap’s Feng Shui for Interiors. The advanced form of the desk position is called the Na Jia. You either have to have taken a class to know how to do this one, or find a good consultant.

  17. Kit Ward says:

    Dear Patricia, I have a question about the office space I am creating. I feel that I am not getting any business. I was wondering if you could help?
    I have an open concept home and my office is located at the front (of the home
    facies north east). While sitting in my chair there is a large window to my right and solid wall behind me. I also face a large mirror and sit beside the window. I also have a small closet with a door in the room to my right. I need to re establish my business from this office. can you help? Thank you in advance
    Kit Ward

    • Patricia says:

      Hi Kit, A few questions…..Is this your primary business? How long has it been going on? What is in the West and South sectors of the home? What gua are you?

      If you are not getting any business, it is likely there is more than just a desk positioning issue. Your luck quotient has 3 parts. See this article for details. http://patricialee.me/feng-shui-resources/heaven-earth-man-luck-three-kinds-of-luck/. If this started since Feb 4 2015, it is likely the year energy affecting you, either in the home or in your birth chart. What sector your front door, your bedroom and office are located will help or make it difficult for you (West, South are not good to attract business).

      If it has been more than a year, there may be something happening with your current luck period in your BaZi birth chart. Like a challenge that detracts from your ability to find clients. It is also possible something in the exterior landform is not supporting you. There are many methods to solve the problem. To do it right, it would take a consultation. You can either find a local person or we can do a review remotely.

    • Patricia says:

      Hi Kit,
      Sorry to take so long to reply. It has been so busy and lots of travel. If you are not getting any business, it would be more than just what you describe. It is likely linked to your Bazi birth chart as well as feng shui. By the latter, I mean the room your are using as well as the positioning of your desk. If your office is at front of the house in the NE sector you should have been fine this year. You might want to move out of the NE sector for 2016 if your office is located there as it will have the most negative energy. This year it is in West.

      Your bedroom location and bed position is important also.

      I would advise you find a local consultant to help you. I do remote consultations if you cannot find a local person.

  18. CH says:

    Hi Patricia,
    I’ve just moved to a new workstation facing directly to the main door entrance. There is no partition in front of my desk. I am the first to be seen when people walked into the office. Behind me, there is a high partition which acts as a wall. Is it ok? Any advice if it is not good to be seated directly facing the main door entrance? Human traffic is quite heavy with people walking in and out. Thanks for your advice.

    • Patricia says:

      CH, Move your desk away from the path of the door if you can. If you cannot, keep an eye out for any open space you can move yourself to as being in front of a door is not good for your productivity or job advancement. Place your desk in one of your personal good directions.

    Hi Patricia! We are in the process of re-arranging our office. I am planning to put my desk in the most favorable position (opposite corner , furthest from the door). My problem is while I will be facing the door with my back to the wall, there is a 130cm tall partition breaking my direct view of the door. If I sit up straight and extend my neck a bit, I can actually see the door. Is this going to be a problem? We can relocate the partition but I don’t really want to be directly seen by clients when they come in because I want my staff to be able to screen clients first. Can you tell me where the partition should go? Thanks in advance! Here is a rough diagram:

      Pankaj, I am not familiar with you term… chamber gate. Do you mean the entry door? Chamber in the SW is good for this year and next. NW door is this year. Next year it will support learning or studying. Do you know your Gua#?

      It is hard to picture what you are talking about. Are you able to send me some photos?

    hi Patricia.. I need some advice on my small office arrangement.. I will come out with the picture …need your emel.. thank you

    • Patricia says:

      Lela, I got your photos. What is your Question?

      • lela says:

        Dear Patricia, my table at my office is at a bad position. Its exacty like ur very first pic at the top of ur article(unfavourable desk position). The small entrance to my room(not main door of my office-but most of ppl use the back door) is just on my left side if i using the computer and one can see me fully from outside. The window with blind at my right side while i using the computer . Pl advise some remedy for this. Thank you so much

        • Patricia says:

          Lela, Can you close the door while working? It matters most what sector of the building your are working and if the land outside matches the sector you are in. If that is good, then what you are saying becomes diminished.

    my desk in a small room is facing a small window with blinds. Just right outside, if I open the blinds, I’ll be facing the bathroom door outside my office through the small glass window. What shall I do? Or this is ok?

    • Patricia says:

      Hi Eugene,
      Sorry for taking so long to answer. I was away for the holidays. Just close the shades. It is more important that you are facing one of your good directions. Do you know how to find this? It is based on your year of birth and called you Gua#. Go to this link to find out. Your good directions will be on the left, near to the top of the page.

    Hi Patricia

    I have a L shape office desk place at the end of the open concept office with row of 3 partitions on each side. I only can face 2 directions base on the table layout. Whether I shift to face one direction or the other, they are all unfavourable facing. At the back of me is the walk-way with rooms behind me.

    Pls advise what I can do to camouflage the unfavourable direction I am facing.

    Thanks
    Mabel

    • Patricia says:

      Mabel,
      You are probably looking at the basic application of facing directions. Under the advanced system, you can usually find flexibility in each sector except facing N which is only good for East group people. What is your gua and what are the 2 general directions you can face?

    Hi Patricia
    I am moving to a new office and I have solid wall on my back and front a window wall on my right side and door at the left side aligned to mi chair. Like picture # 4. I am a 9 gua number and j am facing east which according what I read is my best work position. If I move my desk to face the door then I will be west that is my worst position according to my gua number. What would be your advice do I move the desk and face west or I stay with door on my left side. I I keep door as in picture 4 what can I do to improve the fact that door is in direct line with me ? Thanks in advance for your help on this

      Claudia,
      For Gua 9, you have 4 good choices of your ShengQi best direction under the advanced 8 Mansions formula.
      E2, SW1, NW3 and W1. So you can sit facing one of those directions. I am guessing a bit without a diagram or photo

    Hi Patricia
    My office is small and if I face my best direction , east the door get on my left side and a window in the right side. In this position I have a solid wall behind me , yet I know is not the command position. What should I take as more important my best position of have my worst position (west) but have a clear view of the door.
    My door is usually close. DO you think I need to change the door for a glass door so I see who is coming from my left side?
    thanks
    claudia

      Claudia,
      It matters most where your office is in the whole of the building. If it is in a good sector of the building, you are probably ok, barring something I can’t see. Then try to put yourself in a good direction. Location first, direction second. Facing W1 or W3 is ok for a East group person under the advanced 8Mansions formula. So can put self in East and face W1 or W3.

    Hi Patricia

    My office is small and my desk position is the same as figure 2 except the door to the office is on the right and I have a window to my left.

    Please advise me too,

    Many thanks Jen

      Jen, You can either pull a shade on the window or close the door while working.
