Happy Chinese New Year-We’re Back!


Finally, the year of the Water Tiger is up and running! I’ve been not so patiently awaiting this transition. Why was this so important? After several tough years in my birth chart, this was supposed to be my lucky break. 


I’m a believer, and I absolutely felt the shift, not on Feb 1, official lunar Chinese New Year, but Feb 7 for me. 


How do I know if I’m going to have a good year or not? It’s literally written in the stars. We can’t change our birth luck (1/3 of the luck pie), but we can change the Feng Shui (1/3 of the pie) and we can shift our tenacity, our attitude or person luck (1/3 of the pie).

 
How do you know if the year will be a good year for you? I talked about animal signs and luck in an earlier Feng Shui Friday post, but here is a checklist that you may need help.

Starting In February:
1. You are not sleeping as well as you were since the beginning of the month
2. Things suddenly seem more difficult to accomplish
3. You are feeling less energetic, or sick. 
4. More arguments in your home.
5. Sudden money challenges 

There are many more, but if you notice this, and it’s never subtle, you may need some Feng Shui intervention. 

Hoping the Water Tiger is helpful for you! 

Bye Bye Ox

As we inch closer to leaving the year of the Metal Ox and entering the year of the Water Tiger, I keep reminding myself only a few more weeks!


Why am I so excited to bid adieu to the Ox? As a fire horse with an earth pig day stem, metal is not my element, nor is the ox my animal.  2021 was Metal Ox.


The upcoming Tiger bodes well for Horses (me) and Dogs (these three are bffs in the Zodiac lineup).


It promises to be an exciting year, with lots of transformation and advancement. 

Should be easy for Horses Roosters, and Dogs and Pigs.

Stable and gains for Rats, Oxen, Dragons, Tigers, and Sheep 

Challenging for Snakes and especially challenging for Monkeys (sorry to my Monkey people)

Mixed bag for Rabbits 

Luckily, we all have a blend of animals in our 4 pillars and luck pillars, so there is always a chance for some benefit.


Everyone has easier and more difficult years, but this one looks pretty good for me and my animal lineup! It’s been a tough few years, so I’m sure I am in good company in having no reservations saying goodbye to the Ox! 

Here Come the Tigers: Feng Shui Tips for 2022


Happy end of 2021! These days, we no longer say that next year will be better, we say it will be different. In Feng Shui, certain people in certain houses will fair better than other by default.

It’s a complex process, but here are some tips you can use to assist you going into 2022.

2022 is coming like a huge wave. Water Tiger years are very active, so it is important to be deliberate and think things through. Not a year to be impetuous, or to act without thinking. Take a moment or many moments before making big decisions.

• Clear your inbox-2021 was year of the exploding email box. It is a great idea to clear everything out for 2022. Even creating a 2021 Archive file for all those straggler emails. Then they are not mixed with the new but still there if you need them. This helps clear space in your head and frees up time.

• Say goodbye to old/dead/dying plants. Dead anything is not a Feng Shui boost, so let them go. Buy new ones for 2021 and put them in the eastern area to soak up the am sun.

• Get a daily meditation/relaxation/stretching/quiet thought time. There are literally a million free YouTube videos/apps to help you find the right one for you. This is proven to lower blood pressure and lead to clearer thinking.

In general:

• Avoid breaking ground on renovations in the Northeast and Southwest of your home.

• The middle of the home is inauspicious this year (if you have a rectangle or square home). If your house is a U-shape and the center is missing, this will add an extra challenge to your year. The same goes for open concept homes. Keep the middle of your home as undisturbed as possible. If you’re having a rough time, you can implement a salt cure (for info on this, go to any of my social media accounts and I’ll be re-posting the salt cure).

WE WILL BE CLOSED FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2021. HAVE A HAPPY, HEALTHY CHRISTMAS!
