2021 Lucky Feng Shui Colors

Here are the best colors to wear in 2021 (based on feng shui)

Are you curious about the lucky colors to wear in 2021? Colors of clothing, jewelry, and any other accessories to harmonize with the energy of 2021? Feng shui has a lot of wisdom to offer for all areas of one’s life, and the choice of the best colors is one of them.

In feng shui, color is considered one of the strongest expressions of the feng shui elements. To benefit the most from the potentially very beneficial energy of 2021, this ancient art has a lot of lucky tips and cures to help align one with the energy of the year.

While to some it might sound superstitious (or even silly) to consider the notion of lucky colors, crystals — or anything lucky for that matter! — you will be wise to understand that we are talking about energy here. And, most importantly, the quality of energy you choose to support and align yourself with. Color being one of the most potent expressions of energy, feng shui has recommendations for lucky colors to wear each year. This is the essence of lucky energy in feng shui.

2021 is the year of the Metal feng shui element Ox. What that means is that the energetic qualities of this specific zodiac sign such as strength, stamina, and determination, are expressed in the qualities of the Metal feng shui element, which are clarity, organization, and focus. 2021 will definitely require us to develop and practice all these qualities because they will be key in not only surviving these times but even thriving and creating new opportunities and reaching new levels in one’s life.

Before we delve into all the lucky colors to wear in 2021, note that you also have your best or lucky feng shui colors for life. This info is based on your birth feng shui element, and I have all your lucky colors info ready for you.

Now let’s actually look into the lucky colors to wear in 2021.

The luckiest colors to wear in 2021 are the colors of the Metal feng shui element. It is easy to understand why — you want to be aligned and in harmony with the element of the year. In other words, you want to appreciate its essence, and be friendly and on the same wavelength. The second choice of lucky colors for 2021 is the choice of the colors of the Earth feng shui element because Earth feeds/creates the Metal element in the productive cycle of the five feng shui elements. This knowledge can be quite complex, but if you have the desire (and the time) I have detailed info for you on what the five feng shui elements are, how they interact, and, more importantly, how to decorate your home for good feng shui by using the five elements theory.

Are there colors that are unlucky, or best to avoid wearing too often in 2021? Yes, there are. Again, this is based on the play of the five feng shui elements. The elements that are weakening the energy of the Metal element of 2021 are the Water, the Wood, and the Fire elements. Again, this is all based on specific interactions of the feng shui elements.

Colors to avoid wearing often in 2021


As always, I encourage you to apply any feng shui info wisely. I am not saying to avoid some colors altogether in 2021. Use your common sense here. For example, I love the green color and I do wear quite a bit of black, too, especially when working with clients (black color tends to center and focus one’s energy by eliminating any distractions). So I am not going to make radical changes in my wardrobe. However, what I do is work very mindfully with choosing the best energy for any given moment. If I am going to an important for me event, for example, I will make a point to honour the energy of the year with specific colors. These do not have to be big fashion pieces, it is all a matter of clear and strong intent.

Crystals are also big this year since they are the most perfect representation of the Earth feng shui element that supports the Metal feng shui element. So, be sure you have some beautiful crystals in your home, as well as a few pieces of jewelry with natural crystals. Most crystals are not expensive and do such a great job of protecting and nourishing your energy! Some of my favorite crystals that can work well in 2021 are carnelian, pyrite, and tigers eye. Of course, the hematite and the amazing shungite are also excellent as they provide very grounding energies.

Apart from wearing the lucky feng shui colors often throughout the year, it is also a big tradition to wear them at the New Year celebration. You actually get to celebrate twice (if you wish!) as the Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) starts on a different day each year. in 2021, the Chinese New Year starts on February 12, 2021.

I wish you a stable, safe, and prosperous 2021 filled with love and peaceful discoveries, no matter which colors you choose to wear.
