Every year about this time I alter the Feng Shui of my office and my home to be in balance with the energy map of the year. This will allow me to empower the positive regions and reduce the negative influences of the troublesome areas. In Feng Shui and Four pillar of destiny (Chinese chart reading) it’s necessary for everyone to update the Feng Shui of their home and working place to align yourself with the energy of the year. This will enable you to boost and energize the positive segment of the year and de-energize, cure and be mindful of the negativity and destructive side of the Dragon.

The year 2012 has just begun and the year of the Metal Rabbit is past and we are embarking upon the year of Water Dragon.  This will occur on the 4th of February, which marks the beginning of the spring, called Li Chun.

The change of energy always has a very strong effect on the specific star sign and on the Feng Shui of our space.

People generally think, the year of their own sign, is the best year for them, unfortunately this is not valid.

People born in the year of the Dragon are in a self-penalty with the Dragon and they should pay special attention to their health, on the other hand, anyone who is born in the year of the Dog has a direct clash with dragon and should be cautious.  It is advisable for both sign to carry a pendant of rooster to avoid the potential problem.

As you may be aware, Feng Shui is not a one-size fit all fix for every space, each place has its own energy map. Cures and enhancements are based on the direction of the house and date of birth of the residents.

One of the methods in Feng Shui is called flying star which is the most used and beneficial system. This method is based on 9 numbers and each number represents a different type of energy. Some of them carry a positive and prosper Chi and some have a very negative influence.

Here are the most important changes per direction.

Positive sectors:


This direction carries a very positive energy in 2012 with the annual start 8 symbolizing wealth and prosperity.

You can enhance the wealth energy in your office or your home by activating this corner with Fire and earth element.

Using Fire colors such as red, purple, orange or Earth elements such as yellow will enhance the chi of this section.

You can also use Fire or earth element as a decorative object such as a candle, light, or a clay pot with red flower.  Additionally you can adapt the colour of your curtains or your art work to contain both or any of these colors.

Another way to enhance this section is by using Natural crystal.

To activate the money you can use a water feature.

If your house’s main door faces west, there is an opportunity to gain wealth if you activate it correctly.

In your office you should keep all your financial papers in this section.

Appropriately placing a copy machine and printer is another good way to enhance the wealth energy in the business environment.
