Feng Shui and Mixing Elements

In Feng Shui, you’re never really dealing with 1 element. The mixing of the elements in the space (fire and metal in this cool light fixture, pictured above, in our Cancun restaurant) with the timing (Water Tiger= water element and Tiger is wood element) and the location (Cancun is Southeast from me but Southwest from, let’s say, New York).

And our location in Cancun is next to the Gulf of Mexico, a sea. The beach and the sand are earth.

So, is the predominant element water, metal, fire, wood or earth? 

Everything is represented, and in this restaurant there may be predominant metal and fire (think cooking and pans).

How do all of these elements work together? Or against each other? Do they create harmony? Or do they clash? 

Based on our dinner, I’d say harmonious, but stay tuned for an in depth analysis next week.
