Summer-Fire, Fame, Reputation


It’s Summer and it’s Hot! In Feng Shui, Summer is associated with the Southern direction. It’s also associated with high visibility, popularity, fame and reputation.


If you get the elemental balance right, you can elevate your popularity or reputation-you may be recognized in a public way for your achievements, or you may find your dance card full.


If you get it wrong, you may experience some negative notoriety, or scandal, and a decrease in your popularity.
So how do you get the balance right? It’s complicated…But here are some tips to get the most out of your summer:


If you’re seeking more positive visibility, spend time with your animals. Animals are the element of fire, which stokes fame and reputation.


Spend time in the Southern part of your home-this is where the sun is anyway.


The color red can boost the energy in this sector. So can triangular shapes.


Too much fire is just as bad as not enough fire. If you feel like everyone’s obsessed with you, and not in a good way, you may want to add some earth-like ceramics, to lessen the fire. If it’s out of control, bring on the water.
