Compass School Feng Shui

Using the compass to measure your site mountain, you can gain insight into what the most favourable colour for your front door is.

Site Mountain
The site mountain (site position) in Feng Shui is typically the back of your property building. Visit this page to find out how to calculate an accurate site and facing position for your home. Caveat, it may not be the back wall of your property, nor opposite the front door.

Colour of the Front Door
Locate the site position of your property and take a compass reading to measure the exact degree. Use the compass template to determine which cardinal direction the degree belongs to. Find the element that represents that cardinal direction. The most favourable colour for your front door is the supporting element for the site mountain. This uses the constructive cycle in the five element theory. The second best colour is to use the element of the site mountain. For more information on Feng Shui and colours, visit this page.
