February 4th heralds in the Feng Shui New Year and it is at this time we freshen up our homes and put into place the Feng Shui cures and enhancers for the next year! We determine what is needed by looking at the astrology of the Flying Stars, which are determined by the movement of the Big Dipper, and the Chinese Zodiac.
YEAR OF THE RAT TRAITS
While we can’t always control what happens in the World, we all know change, good fortune, and peace begins within. With this in mind, we offer you this Go-To Guide on how to best cure the negative energy and how to enhance the many blessings of this year through Feng Shui.
Listed below is all the directions with what Flying Star has flown into it this year and what cures, activators, or enhancers you need to create good Feng Shui in your home and office.
This area of your home is under the influence of a fortunate flying star this year although it is weak. It is a good idea toenhance and strengthen its energy by placing metal elements here if you want to bring in more career success. Our pick is theProsperity Dragon Incense Holder as dragons are very protective and auspicious in Feng Shui cures. This dragon sits on top a mound of coins which brings in prosperity, luck, and new clients for your business. Other great choices would be to add metal items such as trophies, wind chimes, or bells to this area.The South area of our home or business is under the influence of flying stars that signify illness, accidents, and poor health. You will want tonegate or lessen this influence by not doing any major renovations there and not putting red in the area. Our choice of feng shui cure is to place this Gold Plated Ganesh Dish in the South as an offering plate filled with crystals, money, and intentions for good health and wisdom. Not your style? We offer a nice selection of gold plated crystal gridplates for you to arrange your protection stones on.
The East, or area of family wellness, is under the influence of one of the most negative stars. It is recommended that even if you do not treat other areas in your home, you do apply a Feng Shui cure to this area this year. To minimize harmful effects to the family, we recommend hanging a six rod metal wind chime. Our Brown Agate Wind Chimes from Woodstock Chimesfits the bill perfectly as it also includes the very protective agate to enhance wellness. Other cures you can apply include placing metal items and Chinese Coins here. Avoid water features in this area.
The very auspicious Divine White Star has flown into the Wealth & Abundance sector of our homes and businesses. There are possibilities of receiving large financial gains this year, attracting more clients or customers, and increasing traveling opportunities. To activate this good fortune, place this Amethyst Feng Shui Tree with Golden Dragon Basein the Southeast area of your home, office, or sacred space. Other enhancers you can apply include placing Earth elements here, like clay pots or statues, and other Gem Trees of your choice.
The unfortunate Robbery Star has entered the Center section of our homes and offices. Because it is in the center, or Health area, anybody in the space can be affected. To negate the negative effects of this placement and protect your home and office, place this small Golden Sheen Obsidian Sphere in the central section to ward off negativity and sharpen your senses. Other Feng Shui cures include placing or hanging any black or blue crystal in the center of your space. Adding a small water element like a fountain or plant growing in water is good, too.
The Prosperity Star is showering your Northwest areas with prosperity, abundance, good fortune, and blessings. We may see more supportive people enter our lives this year with this placement. To activate and further enhance this positive energy, set this Red Coral Feng Shui Treein the Northwest section of your home or office to grow these blessings of prosperity all year long. Other great enhancers include placing red items, such as red crystals, in this area. Adding a water element like fountains, aquariums, or even statues of fish work very well, too.
The West, which rules children and creativity, is being blessed by the Magnifying Star. Although this flying star is a bit weak this year, if properly enhanced you can expect to see heightened creativity, new business ventures, an expansion of the family, and lucrative investment opportunities. To activate the positive effects of this placement, we recommend placing a Septarian Stone Eggin the West. It’s symbolism of fertility, future generations, and creating a nest egg is perfect for this placement. Items depicting Turtles and Laughing Buddhas work well, too.
ON THE GO BLESSINGS
Other than these tips for increasing the good Feng Shui in the spaces you frequent in 2020, we also recommend carrying around Bloodstone in your pocket, wallet or purse to further protect yourself from the pitfalls of this year while also ushering in the blessings with courage and commitment. Wearing a Bloodstone bracelet would be auspicious, too. Alternatively, you could also wear a Chinese Coin Bracelet to further enhance your success and prosperity in the Year of the Metal Rat.
