Your apartment is ideal for you since your Kua is 2. It is excellent
that your apartment door faces Northeast because it is your Sheng
Chi or Success Direction. Using this door to enter and leave the
house will bring you lots of Success Luck.
your three legged toad with coin in mouth discreetly under
the coffee table in the far corner of the living room diagonally
opposite the front door, facing it. You can keep as many as you
want but remember not to exceed nine. Then you can have some facing
out and some facing in. This symbolizes your wealth toads going
out to get money and then bring them back into your home.
three Chinese coins should be knotted together with red,
silver or gold thread to energize their intrinsic energies. Chinese
coins are one of the more potent energizers of Feng Shui, and their
physical presence is said to attract wealth luck wherever they are
placed. So it's really wonderful that there are so many ways in
which you can make use of them to enhance your luck. Attach your
three Chinese coins on the doorknob of your front door, facing
inside the home. This symbolizes the money that is already inside
your home. You may also keep them in your wallet. This will help
to increase your income. In any case, it really helps to attach
them to every item that helps you to bring in lots of money: Make
sure the coins are attached Yang side up. The Yang side is the one
with four Chinese characters and the Yin side has only two.
are wonderful energizers for the sectors that are governed by the
Earth Element. Place one of your cut crystals in the Southwest sector
of your office or desk to enhance your Career Luck and personal
development. Place the other one in the Northeast sector of your
office or desk to enhance your Wealth Luck and bring lots of Success
the North sector with a water feature to further enhance your Career
Luck. Try an aquarium or a painting that shows flowing water. Use
furnishings that are either blue, black or white in color. For improved
Money Luck, energize the Southeast with a wood feature. Try a large
leafy plant or green colored furnishings.
FINDING THAT SPECIAL MAN
Dear Aunt Agga,
I wish to increase
my chances of finding that "special" man. Do I activate
the southwest corner of my home, or my personal love sector which
is east, for the best results?
best results, you should activate both. The element of the Southwest,
which is also the universal sector of marriage and romance, is Big
Earth. Try a pair of mandarin ducks carved from precious
stones or some rose quartz crystals with pink lights. These
will help to bring a loving partner into your life.
peach, pink, orange or red colored furnishings also work well here.
Your personal love sector, which is East, is represented by the
Big Wood element. Some lovely peonies here will help you find that
"special man". They can be in the form of a painting or
silk blooms. Both work just as well. Try using green or blue in
way of using Feng Shui to enhance your Love Luck is through using
jewelry with the Double Happiness character. This is so potent
that it can even help to improve the relationship of incompatible
out these tips, Rose, and you will soon find that wonderful man
you were waiting for.
MY BOYFRIEND AND I ARE ALWAYS FIGHTING
Dear Aunt Agga,
I recently moved
into a new house and my boyfriend and I are always fighting, not
to mention, we have no sex life. My toilet is located in the southwest
part of the house. This is our only bathroom so we cannot stop using
it. We are also renting this house so we can't move out until the
year is up. I heard that I'm supposed to hang a five rod windchime
in the Southwest Sector. But am I supposed to hang the windchime
inside my bathroom or outside of the home? Is the rod supposed to
be wood or metal?
toilet in the Southwest is a common cause of problems in relationships.
Keep the bathroom door shut and the toilet seat down at all times.
This will keep the lid on the source of negative Chi. Hang the five
rod windchime inside the bathroom. It will help to suppress
the bad luck from the toilet. In the Five Elements Theory, wood
destroys earth while metal exhausts earth. Therefore, you can use
either one for this purpose. Just make sure that your windchime
is made of only a single element and not a combination of metal
for the frequent fighting, I recommend that you do some Space Clearing
in the sectors where you always clash. You can use a Singing
Bowl, Space Enhancing Bell or Purifying Incense.
Space Clearing is very effective for clearing your home of negative
Chi that linger after fights and misunderstandings. These negative
energies, if left to accumulate, will negatively affect your relationship,
and cause you to have even more fights.
jazz up your love life, try some romance energizers. Use sexy pink
or red satin sheets and lighting for more passionate nights. Display
a pair of mandarin ducks in the Southwest sector of your
bedroom or your Nien Yen sector. Images of a pair of flying geese
also work well for established couples. A very potent love energizer
would be the Double Happiness character, which enhances
your luck in love, happiness and marriage. I wish you good luck.
HOW DO I IMPROVE MY LUCK?
Dear Aunt Agga,
I was born in
the year 1970, and my Kua no. is 3. Lately, I have been worried
sick because I am having some problems with the law. Can you help
me? What should I do, wear or avoid to make my luck better? I don't
want to get into deep trouble which will destroy my career. I have
to support my family.
can be quite a tough year for you. Being born in the year of the
Dog, you have to confront the Tai Sui in the year of the Dragon.
I recommend that you get a Pi Yao to help you through this
spate of bad luck. You can put in under your desk at work or at
variations of this auspicious creature are the Pik Chen and
the Pi Xiu.
sure that you face your auspicious directions all the times - preferably
your Sheng Chi direction. Carry a small compass with you so that
you get your directions right. Facing your bad directions - especially
your worst one - will destroy whatever good luck you might still
have and probably unleash a whole barrage of nasty events. If you
are not sure what your good directions are, then you should refer
to our Kua Calculator.
may also try energizing the North sector of your home, which will
help to enhance your Career Luck. Use small water features and blue
or black furnishings. If there is a toilet there then a five-rod
windchime would be best to help you suppress the negative Chi.
If the kitchen is there, then make sure that the stove is not in
the North sector. Most importantly, ensure that your fire mouth
of your oven or stove or rice cooker faces one of your auspicious
directions. This is of utmost importance.
very aware of any poison arrows in your environment. The bigger
they are, the more Shar Chi they send out. Either block them off
or keep out of "firing range". Good Luck.
WHAT ARE WEALTH GODS?
Dear Aunt Agga,
What are wealth
gods? I am looking for a pair.
gods are traditionally displayed by Asians to invite abundance into
their homes and offices. Together with many of the other colorful
Chinese deities, wealth gods are the most often invited to shower
their precious blessings of abundance into Chinese homes. Some of
the more popular ones include: Tsai Shen Yeh, Kwan Kung,
Tua Peh Kong, Xi Wang Mu, Fuk Luk Sau (Three Star Gods),
Paht Hsien (Eight Immortals), Pi Kan, and Laughing Buddha
. These deities may be displayed in the living room or the dining
room. There is no need to place them on an altar for worship but
you should display them approximately at eye level.
I'M A FENG SHUI NEWBIE!
Dear Aunt Agga,
In the last
year I have become very interested in Feng Shui. Although I have
tried to work out the right things myself from a book, I find some
of it very confusing. Would it be better to consult an expert, and
have them help me get off to a good start? Or can you recommend
a good simple book that would help to make it clear?
really your choice as to whether you need the guidance of an expert
or to figure out the mechanics of Feng Shui yourself. But it is
Aunt Agga's opinion that you should read and understand the basic
concepts of Feng Shui before you consult a geomancer, as it would
be easier to catch what he or she tells you during the consultation.
FRAGILE AND LETHARGIC
Dear Aunt Agga,
I am 42 years
old and I think my kua is 8. I'm a brittle diabetic. I work more
than 50 hours a week and seem too tired by the weekend to indulge
in the activities I used to enjoy. I am married with 2 children.
What can I do to increase my energy levels and prevent further complications
of my diabetes, as all medical intervention hasn't helped so far?
should activate your personal health or 'Tien Yi' (Doctor from Heaven)
direction and location to improve your health luck. But first, I'd
like to clarify with you your kua number. If you were born on or
before 17th February 1958, your kua would be 8 and your 'Tien Yi'
direction would be in the Northeast. But if you were born on or
after 18th February 1958, your kua number would be 9 and your 'Tien
Yi' direction is South.
first thing you should do is to rearrange your bed so that you sleep
with your head facing your 'Tien Yi' direction. Make sure your headboard
is against a solid wall, which represents support. Next, try your
best to sit facing your 'Tien Yi' at work. This is ideal for those
who are constantly tired and lethargic, and will also help alleviate
suffering due to illness.
thing you can do to improve health is place a model or a painting
of a turtle, or a tank of terrapins in the east corner of your living
room. The turtle is an important symbol of longevity and support,
while the east sector represents good health. You may also wear
red jasper , a powerful stone of protection. Besides enhancing
the circulation of energy in your body, it reputedly cleanses the
blood and promotes general good health. Wear jasper in the form
of a pendant, or made into a bracelet such as the Red Jasper
Buddha Bracelet, which is available at the FS Megamall.
sincerely hope your health improves, Melgala. Please note though,
that the advice given here is only from a Feng Shui point of view.
The state of your health depends largely on yourself. You must not
neglect the advice given to you by your doctors, and should also
practice good health habits such as getting enough exercise and
eating the right diet for your condition. Good luck!
FENG SHUI TO IMPROVE A HOME-BASED BUSINESS
Dear Aunt Agga,
I was born in
the year of the Tiger (Nov 1962) and have recently started a small
home-based business selling sports accessories. A friend of mine
recommended feng shui to help improve the business. However, I have
no knowledge of feng shui and so require your help.
in advance, Wang.
are many, many Feng Shui pointers you can employ to improve your
business! But to get you started, I'll give you a few of the more
important and popular ones.
very first thing you should do to improve your chances of success
is to arrange your bed so that you sleep with your head facing your
Sheng Chi, which is your best direction. From your birthdate, I
know that your kua number is 2, and thus your Sheng Chi is in the
Northeast. It is also advisable to sit facing the Northeast at your
may also wish to energize your Sheng Chi corner. Doing so will help
you attract mentors and powerful patrons to help in your career
and business. As your Sheng Chi is in the Northeast, it is best
to place a globe, a world map or crystals in
this corner, as the element of the Northeast is earth. One great
earth-element energizer is a crystal globe.
utilize one of the best methods (and one especially favoured by
businessmen) of successfully increasing your personal wealth: place
a model sailing ship near your home's front door. Choose a ship
with sails that 'catch the wind', and then fill the ship with imitation
gold ingots or coins and money. One vital thing you must
remember is to make sure that the ship is shown 'sailing' inwards,
towards the inside of your house. Never let the ship face outwards,
as this would symbolize money going out!
you can also place a statue of the three-legged frog or toad
diagonally opposite your main door. The three-legged toad sitting
on a bed of gold ingots, with a gold coin in its mouth, is a wonderful
wealth attractor. Keep it hidden away under tables, chairs, sofas
or other furniture, facing inwards, as if it has just come into
the house. A word of caution: never place these frog or toad symbols
in the kitchen, bathroom, toilet or bedroom. The best place to put
them is the living room.
