Fertility for Men: The Feng Shui Angle

In past articles and in my books, I have written about some Feng Shui circumstances which can affect fertility, with the assumption and emphasis on the woman’s role.
However, there are some things a man can do to increase his own fertility. In the East-West School of Feng Shui, each person has good and bad personal directions based on their personal Kua

. This is also called a Personal Trigram and it is based on your year of birth. In The Feng Shui Matrix, I give a run down of what each of the eight basic directions means for each personal trigram. What might be a positive direction for one person could be negative for another.

One general principle is that for a woman, if she sleeps with her head pointing to her personal trigram direction, it is considered supportive for conception. The personal trigram direction is always associated with relaxation. So it is interesting to see that in this system it is considered easier for a woman to conceive if she is sleeping in her most relaxing direction. For example, a woman born in 1983 is the Dui trigram which is associated with west. If she sleeps with her head to west, this can be one of a half dozen different techniques to help increase the prospects of getting pregnant.

For a man, it is totally different. Each person, male and female, has a personal direction that is considered the best for attracting prosperity. And for a man, sleeping with his head toward his major prosperity direction also makes him more fertile. When I learned this, I found it odd and amusing that for a man to produce offspring is part of the concept of being wealthy. We know for a fact that men who father many children are not necessarily wealthy in reality, but the children themselves are considered manifestations of a different type of prosperity. I knew one very successful businessman who beamed when he was telling everyone about the coming of his fourth child. And he actually said that he had no financial worries because he felt that he had became more successful with each child. Having an attitude like that certainly helps!

If you are a man who wants to know what your combination Major Prosperity/Fertility Sleeping Direction is, I have created a list in this article. It should be noted that for the Personal Trigram Birth Charts, the first day of any given year for the Chinese Solar Calendar begins on February 4th, and not on January 1st. For example, if a man was born in January or February 1st, 2nd, 3rd, in any given year, he is actually a year older on the Trigram calendar. February 4th is the mid-way point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, so it should not be confused with the Chinese Lunar Calendar which vacillates by weeks from year to year.

A man born in January of 1957 for example, would be considered born in 1956. Or a man born on February 3rd of 1961 would be considered born in 1960.

These Personal Trigrams repeat every nine years perpetually and the sleeping direction refers to the direction ones head is pointing when laying down.
