Ba Gua Map 

The bagua is sometimes depicted as an octagon, other times a square. In either case, the bagua consists of eight areas around a center. The bagua is a compass that indicates life areas as well as many other symbolic meanings, such as this image above that identifies each gua by its corresponding I-ching trigram.

How Do You Apply the Bagua?

Your first step is to apply the bagua to your home’s floor plan .

  1. Use an accurately scaled floor plan of your home (or room).

  2. Rotate the plan so the wall with the front door is at the bottom.

  3. Overlay a three-by-three grid, with the bottom of the grid aligned with the wall with the front door.

  4. Make sure the grid is equally spaced.

  5. Locate all the areas to match up with the bagua. Note: Knowledge, Career, and Helpful People should be aligned with the bottom (wall with the front door).
