Dragons and Stuff


Here comes May, the month of the Dragon and the height of Spring. In Classic Form Feng Shui, the dragon resides in the Southeast and is considered lucky for bringing abundance. This does not mean you should stock up on dragon tchotchkes! More is not better in Feng Shui. But if you love dragons because you do and they make you happy, indulge away! 


Generally, people who have dragon in their Bazi chart have strong interpersonal skills, may have important in careers and can earn money easily.  On the downside, their tempers can get the best of them and foil the path to success. 


We have a few dragons in the house, but this guy is my favorite! 

When the Consultant Consults the Master


2020 has been a year for injuries in our household. Finding myself unable to Feng Shui Floyd, because life is just like that, I consulted a master. Richard Ashworth is a published master who is one of the only world renowned Classic Feng Shui/Bazi masters whose native language is English.

He advised us to move our bed so our heads are facing Southwest. This is to counter the opposing Metal Rat year to Tom’s yin Fire Day Stem.

I know this sounds like Greek…he also said to enter through our true Front door, which is in the Northwest, and much less convenient than our porch doors. Hopefully, this will help curtail the rate of physical injury sustained in 2020.

I’m excited to be studying with Richard to formally learn about Bazi (birth charts) and synthesize this with the classical Feng Shui in his dual mastery program. 

Meanwhile, hold tight for a wild end of 2020, with Mercury Retrograde in full force-it promises to be volatile. 

Tom and Healing in Nature


As many of you know, my partner Tom had a rather sudden heart transplant at Stanford on April 6, 2020.


Our Bazi (Chinese astrology birth chart) interpreted by Richard Ashworth, a Feng Shui and Bazi Master I consulted, told me that Tom would heal quickly as the weather got warmer. 


This has all come to pass, and I’m thankful every day that Tom is doing so well. Our charts also told us that we need to handle earth (dirt) and that will ground us in this new phase of our lives. Though Tom is not supposed to handle dirt yet, he can stand on it, and we have plenty of it. This is part of our property, Floyd, and Tom is standing where the ivy used to be. 


The fire of the Sun, the wood from our trees, and the earth from Floyd are a great combination for healing.
