The year 2011 just begun and the Chinese New Year is just around the corner. The year of the Metal Tiger is almost past and we are  embarking  upon the year of Metal Rabbit.  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 two of the twelve star signs. This year we will see a struggling Rooster and a trouble free Dog.

People born on the year of Rooster are in a direct conflict with the Rabbit and they should pay special attention to their health, specifically in area of the back.

People born on the year of the Dog should be very excited. They have the chance to meet their soul mates and they have the perfect opportunity to start a new business.

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 Rabbit.

Here are the most important tips to ensure you harness your full potential for the upcoming Chinese New Year:

In general the year of the Rabbit is a year of conflicts and it is vital to pay special attention to the Feng Shui of our working and living space. 2011 is a Yin Metal sitting over Yin Wood. According to the 5 elemental relationships that means Metal and Wood are in conflict and need special care and mindfulness.

As you may be aware, Feng Shui is not a one size fits 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.

I thought it would be helpful to share my input of 2011 with all my friends, clients and mentors. I created a flying star chart of this year and I am happy to share the main points with you to maximize your prosperity in the year of the Rabbit.
