How to Activate Tao Hua in Feng Shui?

Updated on April 9, 2018
Source

In order to activate love luck, you must first find out your specific Peach Blossom or Tao Hua direction in the bedroom. The Chinese called love luck "peach blossom luck or tao hua yun". Therefore, in feng shui, peach blossom or tao hua actually refers to love luck.

For the singles who are not in any steady relationship, enhancing tao hua yun can increase dating opportunities, which might later lead to a marriage.

The tao hua direction is important to couples too. If their bed or objects that can enhance tao hua are placed in that direction, it can increase the risk of a third-party intrusion into their love relationship.

Please refer to the green chart for the individual’s peach blossom direction.


Most effective way of enhancement

The most effective method of activation would be to place the bed in the love luck corner, with the head facing that direction. However, quite often due to space constraint in the bedroom, this might not be feasible.

Alternative method

The alternative is to put an object that can enhance tao hua, in place of the bed. Among the objects that can enhance love luck, flower vase is the most effective. Please note there must always be fresh flowers in the vase. If getting fresh flowers is too troublesome, then just filling the vase daily with fresh water will do.

[Caution: An empty vase or one that contains stale water in the tao hua direction can also enhance love luck, but this type of tao hua is the rotten type and will bring misfortune.]

Please refer to Activation of Love Luck in Fengshui – Good or Bad? for details on the two kinds of tao hua luck.


Colour and shape of the vase

Before putting a vase, first we have to know what element a colour or shape represents. Each colour or shape is an expression of one of the Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire & Earth).

Element 
Colour and shape of vase 
Metal
Gold, silver or white. Rounded-shaped vase with a round top, a neck and a big round body.  
 
 
Water
Blue or black. Twisted-looking or wavy-shaped vase.
 
 
Wood
Green. Upright rectangular-shaped or columnar vase, without a neck.
 
 
Fire 
Red, orange or purple. Triangular-shaped or pointy-shaped vase. 
 
 
Earth
Yellow or brown. Square-shaped vase, with a square top.

Relationship between the Five Elements

Next, we have to look at the two main cycles of interaction between the Five Elements: Productive (cycle of creation) and Destructive (cycle of destruction), as shown in the blue chart.

The productive cycle (strengthen a particular element)

Metal nurtures → Water nurtures → Wood nurtures → Fire nurtures → Earth nurtures → Metal

The destructive cycle (counteract a particular element)

Metal counteracts → Wood counteracts → Earth counteracts → Water counteracts → Fire counteracts → Metal


Choice of vase

Check out your love luck direction before buying the vase. For example, if your Chinese zodiac is Monkey, then the West will be your tao hua spot (see green chart).

When you refer to the blue chart, you will see that the element for West is Metal and that Earth nurtures Metal.

Therefore, the vase to be displayed in your love luck direction should either be of the Metal or Earth Element. The corresponding colour and shape for Metal are gold, silver or white and rounded-shaped while that for Earth are yellow or brown and square-shaped (see above chart).

Where possible, the material from which the vase is made should also represent the required element. In the case of a vase, the Five Elements are expressed in the following materials:-      

  • Metal element - metal such as brass, copper, stainless steel
  • Water element - glass
  • Wood element - wood
  • Fire element - plastic
  • Earth element - ceramic or porcelain

(Note: When choosing the vase, the colour should be the first criteria, second comes the shape, and then the material of the vase.)

When to expect results

Normally, after activation of the love luck direction, it would take one to two years before any results can be seen.  Of course, there are exceptions wherein some people managed to meet their ideal life partner within a short time from activation.

 

In closing, I would like to reiterate that couples should not activate their love luck direction.  It is just not worth the risk!

      Hi Suki8888

      Yes, you can still use the ceramic vase. As mentioned in above article, the colour should be the first criteria, second comes the shape, and then the material of the vase.

      Thank you very much, your article is really hepful!

      Anyway, I have a question for you. I'm Sheep, so direction is North and elements metal and water. I have this beautiful white, rounded vase, with blue flowers on it, but it is made out of ceramic (which is destructive element in this case). So, can I still use it, or should I look further and buy new one?

      Thank you!

      Thanks for the reply.

      I purchased a fire element vase, http://www.amazon.com/Xfy-Durable-Foldable-Collaps...

      Can it be acceptable as a fire element vase?

      I am using contact bond for sealing the gaps currently, will see whether it works

      Hi Hetstad

      Don't think using a ziplock bag is good. Wonder whether you can use some silicone sealants or glue to seal the gaps. Based on your feedback on the poor quality of the wooden vase, I have deleted the link.

      For married couples and those who are already having love relationship, enhancement of tao hua should be avoided.

      Do let me know whether you managed to fix the leaking problem.

      Hello pinktyoky once again,

      I need some some pointers. I bought the 2nd wood element vase you linked to the amazon website, but it leaks water. I was wondering if I could use a ziplock bag filled with water and place it in the vase, would it still produce the effects of the tao hua?

      And if I already have a girlfriend, should I still enhance my tao hua?

      Your tao hua luck will be strong during the Year of Horse.

      On top of sleeping in the peach blossom area, displaying the correct vase will definitely further enhance the tao hua. However, you must always ensure the vase contains fresh flowers and water; otherwise it can lead to rotten tao hua. Thus, I don’t recommend using this additional method, unless you are desperately in need of tao hua.

      Yes, those with tao hua bazi will have extreme tao hua luck throughout their lives. Generally speaking, most of us (with some exceptions) will have tao hua luck at one time or another and this is usually indicated in the Yearly Chinese Horoscope.

      Oh yes, I did remember the fortune teller saying that I have good 'ren yuan'.

      My peach blossom animal is horse, so during that year my tao hua will be drastically enhanced?

      I have moved my bed to the direction of my peach blossom. Will the addition of the correct vases increase my tao hua, or will it remain the same since you mentioned that it is an alternative to the movement of the bed.

      For the last statement, I mean is this tua hua luck a trait that certain people possess? Or that every person has tua hua and it will be enhanced depending on the year of the peach blossom animal.

      Hi Hetstad

      A person with tao hua tends to have more dating opportunities as he/she appears more attractive to the opposite sex. In addition, this person will be liked by the people around him/her. Such good interpersonal relationship is what the Chinese called ‘ren yuan’, which can prove to be useful in one’s career or other aspects of life.

      Bazi (Four Pillars of Destiny) is usually used to calculate tao hua luck in a person’s life. It contains codes relating to tao hua - whether a person has tao hua luck and what kind of tao hua is it (i.e. good or rotten tao hua).

      There can be cases where the bazi shows no tao hua or worse still, contains certain stars that signifies ‘singlehood’. Such people will have difficulty in getting a life partner and need some remedy to the problem.

      Based on bazi principles, everyone of us has a peach blossom animal, which we can make use of to enhance tao hua. For details, please refer to my articles.

      Not sure what you mean by “Can a person just have tao hua luck generally?”.

      Hey pinky,

      I was told by a fortune teller that I have tao hua luck. What does that mean? From your article, everyone has tao hua luck depending on the year of that peach blossom animal.

      Can a person just have tao hua luck generally? I'm a bit confused.

      Aphrodite Venus, please make sure it is fresh flowers and water. That's very important. Also, avoid a vase of the destructive element. Feel free to contact me if you need further info. Good luck in your activation!
