what is feng shui bagua map?
the feng shui bagua map is a map, usually octagonal in shape that does not allow spaces to be divided into 8 main areas. the bagua map has as its center the duality of yin and yang, which are the dominant energies of heaven and earth.
The 8 zones of the bagua map represent the cardinal points of the compass, feng shui calls these points “aspirations”, since they are aspects in which we aspire to an ideal level of energetic and abundant balance. This feng shui octagonal layout is one of the main guides to detect any discomfort inside your house, or even when you are going to move and want to perfectly distribute all your furniture and the colors you should use.
