Published: 10 August 2023

Located next to Woodleigh Hillside in Bidadari, Woodleigh Glen is one of the long-awaited Build-to-Order (BTO) projects in the Woodleigh district that were completed between September 2022 and March 2023.

Built upon the land of a former cemetery, this new housing estate shares similar fengshui considerations with its neighbouring estate but there is more to residential fengshui than its landform.

Wondering if your home is facing a favourable direction or if there are potential fengshui conflicts to be mindful of? Read on for an in-depth fengshui review on Woodleigh Glen!

Woodleigh Glen: Landform fengshui  

Bounded by Woodleigh Link, Upper Serangoon Road and Bidadari Park Drive, Woodleigh Glen is located conveniently near to the underground Woodleigh MRT Station, which is walkable in less than 5 minutes. This new Bidadari estate sits on the Eastern Dragon, representative of the Wood element.

From a fengshui perspective, Woodleigh Glen is part of the “Transporting Cart of Gold and Jade” formation. This is a propitious land that is suitable for industries such as commerce, finance, accounting, investments, etc. To improve or retain wealth luck, those who are living or doing businesses here are recommended to conduct renovation or a revamp from time to time.

Internal fengshui considerations

When it comes to choosing an ideal unit, keep in mind that the main orientation of a house will directly influence the overall luck of its residents. The house orientation refers to the facing of your house, which can be measured from the main entrance where qi flows in.

 Woodleigh Glen comprises 688 residential units across 8 blocks from 8 to 14 storey in height. There are 2-room Flexi, 3-room and 4-room flats. Additionally, one other residential block is for rental housing, making a total of 9 residential blocks in this BTO development.

Based on fengshui analysis, North and South are the most auspicious directions in the upcoming Periods 9 and 1 (years 2024 – 2063), and Northwest and Southeast are the second most auspicious directions. Hence, it is recommended to choose a unit that faces either of these directions or lies at the border of these directions to tap on the positive energies.

The majority of units at Woodleigh Glen face the above mentioned auspicious directions. Nevertheless, some units face Southwest or West, which are less favourable in the upcoming Period 9 (2024 -2043). Homeowners may want to consult a professional fengshui practitioner should your unit face a less favourable direction. The following list shows the blocks and units with favourable home orientation for your reference:

External fengshui considerations

As one’s external environment accounts for more than interior considerations, it is important to consider features of the surrounding space when selecting a new home.

Interestingly, the name ‘Woodleigh Glen’ is inspired by the development’s design, where residential blocks are located along its perimeter, creating a central space that resembles a valley, or a ‘Glen’. In fengshui, it is believed that a ‘valley’ design can aid in accumulating wealth and positive energy. Surrounded by lush greenery and with a favourable valley design, residents at Woodleigh Glen can enjoy positive fengshui influences.

On the other hand, homeowners should keep in mind that plants can introduce unwanted pests into our homes if they are too close to entrances. While plants symbolise vitality and growth, trees can deflect incoming auspicious energies, so take note if your unit is close to trees and plants.

New BTO units often face potential light and sound Sha due to their proximity or facing towards multi-storey car parks (MSCPs). Fortunately for Woodleigh Glen, this is not an issue as the MSCPs are just two storey in height and covered by an accessible roof garden.

As Bidadari is a developing town, homeowners should stay mindful as there are many sites surrounding Woodleigh Glen that are currently being developed or reserved for future high-rise residential development. High-rise buildings in proximity present a potential risk of conflicts such as Tian Zhan Sha (home’s frontage facing an opening between two or more building structures that funnel negative energies), corner Sha (角煞) where sharp corners present hidden threats, etc.

If you encounter such scenarios, you may display a pair of guardian lions or Six Emperor Coins emblem to ward off the negative energies. If in doubt, don’t hesitate to consult a professional fengshui practitioner.

For those who are wondering if it is a taboo to be staying at a land that was once a cemetery, we have previously shared about this during our fengshui review of the neighbouring Woodleigh Hillside, which you can read here.

Did you know?

It is no secret that flats are getting smaller in land-scarce Singapore. Mirrors are often used to give the illusion of depth, thereby making the interior space look bigger than it actually is. However, there are some fengshui taboos that you should take note of if you’re thinking of installing mirrors in your living space.

  • Mirrors should be positioned to face internal walls. If your mirror faces the main door or window, they may reflect influences of the external environment, which can be negative to the well-being and emotions of household members.
  • Avoid installing too many mirrors, as the multiple reflections and shadows may easily cause one to be in a trance, heightening stress and anxiety
  • Opt for plain mirrors instead of those with fancy patterns or mosaics. Fragmented patterns may give a sense of brokenness.

How to improve your home fengshui?

As with most things in life, getting it right from the start will save you lots of effort. More than just the correct placement of furniture or avoiding certain colours, home fengshui looks into compatibility amongst the homeowners and your living spaces.
