5 feng shui pieces that will bring you luck this Chinese New Year
MANILA, Philippines – Goodbye Year of the Fire Rooster! Hello, Year of the Earth Dog!
Whether the Chinese New Year on February 16 will bring you good luck or not, it’s always wise to make your environment’s luck work for you – that means reassessing your home and office’s feng shui for the year.
Below is the Flying Star Chart for 2018, which was given to us by feng shui expert Princess Lim Fernandez. She advises to “cure first, before enhancing,” meaning guard against your black stars first before giving the red ones a boost.
To help you out, here’s a quick guide to what the chart above means:
- Favorable Directions: Southeast, Center, Northwest, Southwest
- Unfavorable Directions: North, West, Northeast
- Directions to Avoid Renovation Work: North, South, Northwest (292.5 – 307.5 degrees), Southeast (112.5 – 127.5 degrees)
- Directions to Avoid sitting and facing: Sitting southeast and facing northwest (292.5 – 307.5 degrees); sitting north and facing South
- Zodiac Signs Offending the Grand Duke or Tai Suey of the Year: Dragon, Rooster, Dog, Ox, Goat; also people whose name and surname starts with the letters G, J, L, N, W, Y
Once you’ve assessed your space with the information above, take a look at the following items and see which you might need. All of these are available at Princess’ store, Yin & Yang Shop of Harmony.
Double Double Money Catcher
This is an infinite creature and a “catcher of money,” because of its voracious appetite for wealth. The double heads means double the wealth, because it’s able to catch it from all directions. It’s also used to neutralize Sha Qi (negative energy). Put this in the wealth area of your home or office.
Since Amber is fossil that comes from ancient evergreen trees, they’re said to carry old energy and the accumulated wisdom of the earth. It’s used to balance emotions, attract good luck, eliminate fear, dissolve negative energies, and develop patience, wisdom, and courage. Put it around your house or carry it with you for protection.
Kai Fu Brass Plate
This year, unlock the Prosperity Star at the center of your space with the Kai Fu Brass Plate. Put it in the middle of your space and put a White Jade Gourd on top.
Brass Longevity Peach
This is a representation of the “Peaches of Immortality” that are growing in Heaven’s garden, according to Chinese legend. They’re supposed to ripen once every one thousand years and grant immortality to the humans who eat them. As such, they symbolize good health and longevity – a good thing for everyone to have this Year of the Dog.
Epic Stone Fruits
These symbolize transformation – they set a pace and bring about change. They can help you advance to the highest level that you choose, calm your fears, and make you feel safe. They can also take the edge off of communication during difficult times and assist in smooth discussions.
