Feng Shui for 2019

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 Pig 2019, which starts on February 4th, 2019 use your environment according to the feng shui 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 Pig 2019 the best places to be are the West, the Northwest and the East. This applies to your residence and to your place of work.

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

Go to the center of the house (or office), 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 West and Northwest are good to be used if you are interested on feng shui for prosperity. You may use them as follows:

  • If you are looking for money, locate yourself in the West or Northwest. Locating yourself in the West will also give you the opportunity to increase your discipline. Locating yourself in the Northwest will also allow you to be in a position of service.
  • If you want authority, or you need to improve your execution skills, locate yourself in the East, but place some water there, otherwise you won’t see any growth. Locating yourself in this sector is also good to get rid of matters that you don’t want in your life.

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 North. This is also a good location to enhance all your personal relations, even the business ones, including increasing your number of clients. Locating yourself in this sector is also favorable to reach academic achievements or to meditate and turn your knowledge into business skills.

The worse sector of the year is the Southwest, 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 or office 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 West or the South (the West is much better) before actually going inside the rest of the place.

Another sector that is not so favorable is the Northeast. Staying there could cause illness.

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

  • Locate yourself in the South 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 Southeast if you want to overcome any communication problems, even though you may also go through some verbal disagreements.

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.

Happy Year of the Pig 2019!

Three Places for the Christmas Tree during 2018

Not everybody celebrates Christmas in the same way but everybody who celebrates Christmas has a Christmas tree so let’s kill two birds with one stone and locate the Christmas tree in the best place.

In Chinese culture the evergreen pine tree is a symbol of longevity. Chinese believe that there is no good luck without a long life that is why longevity is one of the most important life aspirations and one of the purposes of good feng shui.

There are different ways to support our life aspirations and the most basic one is to display symbols of good fortune. In this case the symbol is our beloved Christmas tree that is the same as the evergreen pine tree, and the location is the longevity sector in our house or living space. 

Every dwelling has a longevity sector, check out the table below to locate yours based on your house facing direction. For instance, if your house faces West the longevity sector is Southeast and that is where your Christmas tree should be.

For instance, if your house faces West the longevity sector is Southeast and that is where your Christmas tree should be.

 

If using your Christmas tree to boost your longevity doesn’t appeal to you, how about using it to enhance love?

The Christmas tree belongs to the Chinese element wood and could be represented by a star known as star 4. Star 4 symbolizes love and academic success and it becomes stronger when it combines with star 1 that belongs to the Chinese element water.

Additionally, star 4 has a special connection with star 6 and this connection implies personal relations.

During the month of December 2018 star 1 is in the Southwest and Star 6 is in the West. If we add star 4 the result is nothing less than increased love or at least increased meaningful personal connections. Additionally, if you remember my article Love is in the Air, love has been in the South all year long, if you want to boost it even further, you may place the Christmas tree in the South sector of your home as well. 

In conclusion, if you prefer love than longevity, place your Christmas tree in the South, West or Southwest. And if any of those sectors happens to be your house longevity location, rejoice, you will be killing three birds with one stone.  Happy Holidays!
