Feng Shui Friday

about_Us

My education in Feng Shui, or the art of placement,began in Japan in 1992. I was teaching English in Sendai, and my employers and his wife were trying to have a baby. One Feng Shui Master and 5 empty white picture frames later, they were expecting, and I was hooked. Over the next 20 years, I've consumed over 30 books on the subject, and have practiced 3 variations of Feng Shui from 3 schools of thought in my many consultations. I have arrived at a practice that combines the Form School, Flying Star elements, and Black Hat, or Western Feng Shui. I utilize traditional Feng Shui principles, but use a Western perspective with respect to architecture, property layout, and land location. I've completed a gold level Feng Shui practitioners program and am a graduate and professional member of the International Feng Shui Guild. My expertise lies in achieving a balance of all areas in a retail or personal space while maintaining the aesthetic integrity in order to achieve the client's goals. -Melissa Leib.

Yay! Summer Is here! June 21 marked the Summer Solstice of 2020. The longest day of the year, coupled with a rare Solstice solar eclipse. It is said by some Feng Shui Masters if you observed this solstice solar eclipse outside, you will have 2 years of bad luck. As if we needed any more! The yang of the sun is essentially covered by the yin of the moon during an hour where there is supposed to be light, so it is considered sha chi, or bad chi, to expose yourself to it. I stayed inside!  

Now we have Mercury Retrograde. June 17-July 12. Problems with communication, delays in travel, meetings. Don’t sign a contract or make big purchases. A great time to complete a project, or practice anything with re-Revive, reorganize, review, revisit. 

2020 will certainly be a year that we all remember, but with the Summer solstice, change is in the air (and by change I do not mean COVID) All of this planetary activity gives way to big shifts. The year is more than half over, and we have an opportunity to move in a different direction. Let’s take it, get out in the sun and begin the process of healing.
