What Land Shapes say about Your Life

What Land Shapes say about Your Life

(The following article on land shapes is an excerpt from our upcoming book, titled "How your home reveals everything about you", out now on Amazon.com.

Every shape in our lives has meaning and influences our lives in some way. The parcel of land your home is one of the simplest examples of this connection between shapes and our lives. For example, the shape of your land shows whether your life will be stable or changing. Each shape has particular benefits and drawbacks associated with it’s represented element.  Let’s look at the three most common land shapes and what they mean for the inhabitants.


EarthEarth is a predominantly a stable Feng Shui element. Earth doesn’t change or move much (in comparison to other elements). The great thing about Earth is that it can be depended and counted on. Earth also doesn’t need any support. Its needs are simple in the world of elements.

However, if you want something to change, Earth is the last thing that could help you. Earth is stubborn and set in its ways. Therefore it requires a long time and effort for any change to occur.


Those living here will have stable lives*. People living, or working here will experience little to no change over the years. If they’re poor, they’ll stay poor, if rich, they’ll stay rich. Life will remain the same. The good thing is that the inhabitant’s life can’t get worse while living there. On the flipside, if life is already bad, it won’t better either.

*Noteworthy: The exact details of their life depend on the property’s address, the day of the week the inhabitants were born, and the colors they’ve used in their home. These are more advanced topics for future books.



woodWood starts its life cycle as part of a living organism. It moves, breathes, and grows over time.  Therefore we see wood as a stable while somewhat flexible Feng Shui element, which changes and evolves over time.

So the great thing about wood is that, when we nurture and provide the right environmental for wood, it can flourish. But, without constant nourishment from outside sources, it becomes sick. It’ll weaken, and eventually die.

Most properties are some variation of a rectangle. They may be long and narrow or short and wide. No matter how wide or narrow the rectangle is, each one is seen as the same.


Anyone living on a property like this will have a relatively stable life. But it will require constant effort to maintain this stability. Without their continual input and effort, their lives will deteriorate. Similar to how a tree needs multiple inputs to retain its vigor.

Change is certainly possible for the people living here but it takes time, and progress is slow. These people don’t like to change too much too quickly. Because it’s wood, they’ll need a lot of favorable factors in their lives to see improvement. It won’t be easy.



FireYou’ll see triangle land shapes on corners or intersections. This symbolizes fire. Fire is a Feng Shui element which has unique qualities but needs regular fuel to maintain itself. The product or results seen from a fire depend solely on the fuel provided.


The good thing about this shape is that it can make the inhabitant successful and prosperous. But, this can only happen if they own a business or have a job that requires a highly specialized skill or their unique knowledge.

It’s the owner’s ability and personal value that fuels the fire and which can make them prosperous. But because they’re the fuel, their success cannot be passed down to the next generation or achieved without them. Any person who follows them will have to be unique in their way.

Finally, if a company is on this property, it will be best for them to conduct specialized work, with uniquely skilled employees who are experts or specialists in their field.
