Feng Shui Ruler – How to Read Auspicious and Inauspicious Measurement?
Many Chinese people use the specific dimensions of the Feng shui ruler or measuring tape to unveil the auspicious or inauspicious energy in their home, office or garden.
People typically use this special ruler to construct furnitures like tables, chairs, and prayer altar tables. But wait, don’t rush into measuring every piece of furniture in your home and start getting worried.

We usually see Feng shui rulers divided into eight sequences of dimensions. You will notice four auspicious sections (indicated with red ink) and four inauspicious sections (marked with black ink) on the ruler. Each segment measurement is equivalent to 43 cm and will repeat every segment.
Apart from that, you can also find two markings of measurements on the top and bottom of the ruler. What do they mean? We use the top section to measure Yang houses, meaning our living space, while the bottom is for measuring Yin houses like coffins and graveyards.
