The bagua for your career and life path is located in the North or in the entrance area and represents the water element, the winter and the night. Directly related with this quadrant are also the turtle and the black warrior of the North. Water is a feminine element (Yin), and extremely powerful. Its dynamism/energy is fluid and directed downward. When the water element unleashes its full potential of power, it can be even more destructive than fire. Channeled in the right, harmonious direction, however, water may bring a lot of luck and success in to your life.
We usually need both, personal and professional success to feel happy with our life journey, therefore we should pay special attention to this quadrant. Don’t exaggerate the “stimulation” of water – to much of a good thing can be destructive in this case. To boost the professional success impatiently could quickly result into stress and overload. The 1. Bagua is related to the trigram Kan , which stands for danger and abyss, and to the ever-changing moon. So be careful with this element! Water can easily overflow the banks.
