Feng Shui for the House during 2018


Your luck is determined by what is given to you at the time of birth, by your actions and by the environment.

To improve your luck during the year of the Dog 2018, which starts on February 4th, 2018, check out my previous article and use your environment according to the feng shui for the house recommendations explained below.

Feng shui is about location, direction and time for this reason the best feng shui practice is to locate yourself in the place where there is favorable energy or to do what is favorable to be done in the place where you are at.

During the year of the Dog 2018 the best places to be are the Southeast, the Southwest and the Northwest.

To find those places in your house, superimpose a 3x3 grid on your floor plan and determine its orientation with a compass as follows:

Go to the center of the house, hold a compass in your hands pointing towards any direction and stay still until the compass stops moving. Mark that direction on the corresponding box and then label the other boxes accordingly.

The Southeast, the Southwest and the Northwest are very good to be used if you are interested on feng shui for prosperity. You may use them as follows:

  • If all you are looking for is money, locate yourself in the Southeast.
  • If you want career advancement and authority, or you need to improve your execution skills, locate yourself in the Southwest.
  • If you want to meet influential people like mentors or advisors and prepare your future success, locate yourself in the Northwest.

In any case, take action to reach your goals because feng shui creates opportunity but it is your responsibility to turn those opportunities into actual gains.

If you are not interested on feng shui for prosperity but you are interested on feng shui for love, the place to be is the South. This is also a good location to enhance all your personal relations, even the business ones, or to reach academic achievements, or to gain clarity regarding the right path to take to reach success.

The worst sector of the year is North, the best practice is to avoid it: Don’t sleep there, don’t work there, don’t spend time there every day and don’t come into your house through a door in that location. If you don’t have any choice, follow these recommendations:

  • If you don’t have any other place to stay, diminish the strength of the unfavorable energy placing heavy metal objects in that location.
  • If you don’t have any other doors to enter your place, divert the energy: locate a screen right inside the door to force you, your family members, your visitors and the flow of Qi to go to the Northwest or the Northeast (the Northwest is better) before actually going inside the rest of the place.

Another sector that is not so favorable is the West. Staying there could cause illness, primarily if you have a Rooster, a Rat or a Dog in any of the pillars of your birth chart. To determine if you have any of these zodiac animals go to my BaZi Calculator and plot your chart. In any case, diminish the risk of illness placing heavy metal objects in that location.

The Northeast and the East are not so recommended either because they could cause arguments and discord, however, you may use them as follows:

  • Locate yourself in the Northeast if you want to shake up your life and reach any type of transformation, it will be painful but at the end you will become a better self.
  • Locate yourself in the East if you want to overcome any communication problems.

If you can't locate your bed, your desk, or your couch to spend 6 or more hours a day in the location that suits your needs, you can activate the energy in that location to get the benefits, but for that you have to contact me because activations must be done on favorable dates that connect with your birthdate.

Anyways, to try to start off the year of the Dog on the right foot you have nothing to lose if on January 29th, 2018, before the commencement of the year, between 3:30 and 4:30 pm (local time at your place) you activate the East:

  • Hammer or drill a wall on that sector as if you were going to hang up a heavy picture (you may fix the hole right after the activation is done), or
  • Move out all the furniture of the sector and then move it back in, or
  • Place a big bucket of uncovered water and leave it there for two weeks

While you do the activation ask the universe for what you wish. #HappyNewYear!
