Interaction of Water and Fire Feng Shui Elements

In straightforward terms, the interaction of water and fire feng shui elements is considered destructive because water puts out the fire. What this means in terms of energy exchange between people with these two elements is that, most probably, the person with the water feng shui birth element will be putting out the fire of the Fire element person, thus creating the possibility of a potentially difficult long-term interaction.

When you have this feng shui birth elements combined with your child, your parent, your spouse or between siblings, you sure want to minimize the friction and create more harmony at home.

The Decor Strategy

The feng shui strategy with this (or other challenging feng shui birth elements) is to introduce a feng shui element that will balance out the potentially rocky energy exchange you are experiencing.

Wood Feng Shui Decor

In the case of water and fire feng shui birth elements combination, you need to focus on decorating with the wood feng shui element. The wood element will draw the excess energy from the Water and nourish the weak Fire.

This feng shui strategy works because wood gently weakens the water energy, at the same time giving strong support to the fire element person.

Be sure you have a good understanding of colors as expressions of specific feng shui elements, as well as popular decor items as feng shui element cures for your home. This will help you detect the feng shui elements that are best to avoid (when in strong proportions) in your environment. 

Earth Feng Shui Decor

In case of a water-fire feng shui element combination, do your best to avoid a strong presence of the earth feng shui element decor. Do not avoid it altogether, as we need all five elements for balance; sense when you have too much of it in your space.

With patience and determination, you will most certainly create a happy and harmonious home where both fire and water elements people feel nourished and supported.
