Feng Shui analysis includes the timing of when to use certain remedies, not just what to use and where. In my consultations I routinely determine what kinds of long term remedies should be installed as well as annual remedies. What is a remedy? A remedy can be a color or item of décor in a room that represents one of the five elements (water, wood, fire, earth, metal.) A remedy can also be a recommendation on where to position a piece of furniture like a desk or bed and that placement is usually a long term recommendation based on the best energy flow for the room as well as the person’s best personal directions. |
Aside from the semi-permanent and annual cycles, there are monthly cycles as well. Examples of doing monthly remedies or noting monthly cycles includes helping clients with fertility issues, remodeling concerns, surgery recovery, sending out resumes, putting a house on the market, traveling, protecting against accidents or break-ins, and a whole host of other circumstances that can be a focal point more in some months than others. In fact, when the yearly energy in a house or business does not support a certain goal, there might be a window of time in terms of better months to accomplish something without any negative fall-out. There are even daily cycles to tap into, with Feng Shui remedies to apply in certain areas of the floor plan on those special days.
In the complementary field of Chinese astrology, February is always the Month of the Tiger. Each month is associated with the one of the twelve Chinese zodiac signs and each person has a relationship with that sign. For my clients who have already received their 2011 Annual Update, I gave each client their Lu Cun Lucky Money Days, associated with one of the Chinese zodiac signs, although it is usually NOT the person’s own zodiac sign. In a general way, your Lu Cun Lucky Money Month could be your best month to make a big financial decision or risk. For example, if your Lucky Money Days are Tiger Days, then the Tiger Month of the February can also be an especially positive month for you.
February is Tiger, March is Rabbit, April is Dragon, May is Snake, June is Horse, July is Sheep, August is Monkey, September is Rooster, October is Dog, November is Pig, December is Rat, and January is Ox. These monthly cycles do not begin on the first of each month according to the Western calendar however. They start closer to the second week of each month in our Western Calendar. The Chinese have something called the “10,000 Year Calendar” which is not literally 10,000 years, but it is considered a major calendar with advice for doing or not doing certain activities on certain days. It’s all calculated and very mathematical.
