Myth Buster 34: A Red Gate is Very Auspicious

Published October 23, 2015 by jptan2012

red doorThere is a pervasive belief amongst Chinese and/or Feng Shui enthusiasts that a red gate or door is very auspicious, this is because red is normally considered as a vey lucky yang color.

However, this is just a myth. While it’s true that sometimes a red gate or red door is very auspicious, it’s not always the case, you have to look at the direction of the gate and consider the birthdate of the person living there or at the very least the head of the gate

Again, this belief started in China when Mao Zedong released fake Feng Shui experts to appease some of the citizens. He wants to stop Feng Shui because he is afraid that people might use it to topple him, but totally taking it out should be more detrimental for him because people will seek out the Feng Shui masters, so what he did is released fake Feng Shui experts so that they can give wrong generalize information.
