The seventh area in the Bagua is representative of children and creativity. The element of this seventh sector is also metal, like the 6th sector. Think of the reflective surface that a big large still lake presents. The lake itself it water, but that shiny reflection is of the metal element. If your 9 star ki astrological sign is 7 metal, you are probably open to all with an optimistic mindset. You have a fun-loving personality, can be youthful, humorous and are the hostess with the mostess! You are attracted to things that are comfortable, and pleasurable. Be aware of this and be sure a lazy energy doesn’t overcome you. Stay focused on your long term goals, and abundance will come.

So where is this 7th sector in your home, office, or space, and how do you know how to find it? In BTB Feng Shui, the Bagua Map is used to determine this. If you were to stretch a “tic-tac-toe” grid over your space from the front door, the children and creativity sector is the center right area on this grid. If you are embarking on a creative project, wanting to bring out your inner child, visioning to conceive, or want to create a chill out spot just for you, the following are some suggestions that will be supportive while you focus on your goal.
- Supportive colors for this area, are metal colors such as white, silver, gray, gold, and even cream, but this is also a great space for pastel colors as well.
- This section of your space should be used to INSPIRE! Keep pictures and artwork here that you love, and perhaps even created yourself.
- Metal coins are good in this area, and this is a great place to keep your coin collection.
- If you have children in your life, display their pictures here (unless the master bedroom falls in this sector).
- Circles are the shape of the metal element and work excellent here. You can use circluar picture frames, glass vases, or even an art piece that is circular.
- The direction of the metal element is west. Do something specific to the west area of this sector that is reflective of what you want to currently CREATE for your life now.
- The season of the wood element is Autumn, so pay special attention to this space during the autumn season! Use the colors of Autumn to inspire.
- If you have a specific goal of trying to create children with your partner, including adoption and IVF, use the symbol of the elephant. Place 2 elephants in this area. (You can also use these close to the bed if you are trying to get pregnant). Pomegranates are another good symbol that support conception. Find a decorative pomegranate made of metal or crystal, and place it on display with the intention that you are planting beautiful, grounded seeds in the womb.
Now that you have some ideas on how to enhance this area, it is also important to know what you should avoid. In the cycle of the 5 elements, water exhausts metal and fire melts metal.
