2016 Year of the Monkey!

2016 Year of the Monkey!

Choose to be flexible and ready for change and you will find 2016 will be kind to you. This is the year of the Monkey in Chinese astrology and even though I admit I have not studied Chinese Astrology, I do know that the Feng Shui visiting energy in the heart of all buildings this year will bring great change! You will see many more new inventions as we build on the cutting edge technologies introduced in the last few years! If we did not have the invention of social media, iPhones, and the design of apps then we would not have Uber and other YouTube training videos for example, which have helped to bring people together, expand education and improve on ways of training, expansion of small businesses, and empowering individuals.

With the separation and/or sickness Feng Shui visiting energy of 2016 in the center of all buildings, you will see more people, moving this year, changing jobs, letting go of relationships that no longer work, enjoying more travel, and of course experiencing more loss, letting go, and/or challenges as countries are being restructured through chaos, and destruction. In the Chinese language, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters, one representing danger and the other, opportunity. The Chinese have an important saying: “The one thing you can always count on is change”. So learning to “Let go” quickly and respond positively to change will help you maneuver through this year of great change.

This year’s Feng Shui visiting energy will cause you to review anything started previously in order to begin on a new path after the nine previous years with the possibly to reset your life and move forward to create greater abundance in 2017! The 2016 yearly visiting energy will be the strongest from June through September as energies in each of the nine areas of your building peaks for the year. Where your focus is will expand, so be sure to focus your thoughts on peace and harmony, abundance and good health for all.

The Traditional Feng Shui that I practice is so unique and personal. You will experience this year’s visiting energy a little differently from your neighbor due to the permanent energy blueprint of your building unique to it placement on the land and your floor plan. Last year the abundance and prosperous energy for 2015 fell in the north. If that was your front door, office, or your bedroom you would have experienced more abundance than others whose north quadrant was in their dining room or their guest bedroom for example; areas which were used less often.

Therefore, everyone will experience their lives differently because for some the abundance will be located in areas where they spend more time than others. The Southwest in 2016 will be the most abundance location in any building! If this is your bedroom or front door, you will have a stronger opportunity to increase your wealth, health and/or increase relationships this year because you spend the most time in those areas, plus the front door indicates what is coming to you from the outside world. Increased relationships could mean a new love, more friends, or additions to the family with the birth of a child, or a marriage which will help to expand your family. In Feng Shui we say this energy in the Southwest this year represented by the number “8” is like having “A rich uncle coming to visit and bringing you gifts!”

Your personal experience of the 2016 yearly visiting energy depends on where the abundant “8” energy, or the delays energy represented by the number “5”, fall in your building for this year. Unlike the “Black Hat” Feng Shui, the traditional Feng Shui does not use the front door as a determination for the location of your love corner, marriage corner, or wealth corner. It does not matter in traditional Feng Shui if you are missing a quadrant because it is more about what energy you are sleeping in and what energy is coming through your front door? Is the house type an East or West Group type to match your East or West Group personality type?

See Below for the Feng Shui Visiting Monthly Energies from February 4 through March 4, 2016:

Center:  this energy has the potential for separation and/or sickness.  Lots of letting go.  Expect people to experience job changes: promotions, retirement, or resignations, relationships break-ups, renters moving out, and much change coming related to major transformation.  The earth may experience changes with earthquakes, hurricanes, and/or fires that could cause more loss or change especially in the heart of the country where the separation energy is located, reaching a peak in June through September.

South: brings the potential for power and authority.  It is a good month to go for that job you have been thinking about if you sleep, work or spend lots of time in the South.  This will be a good month to make future decisions bringing you more power and clarity.

Southwest: brings expansion of wealth, health, and/or relationships.  If this is your front door you may have more visitors, new friendships, improved health, and/or wealth expansion!.  If this is the front door of your business you may experience expansion of clients and/or wealth.  If this is your bedroom, you may experience a raise, unexpected income, improvement in your health, and/or additions to your family this month.  This energy is said to be like having a rich uncle come to visit!

West:  brings the potential for travel, creative writing, great academics, and the potential for teaching and/or speaking.

Northwest:  this energy brings the potential for whining and complaining.

North:  brings the potential for wealth.  Depending on your permanent energy specific to your home, you may experience possible cravings for alcohol, and the potential shopping, vanity, and/or an increase in entertaining.  Your permanent energy of your building has an influence on which of these possibilities will be most prevalent.

Northeast: brings the potential for delays, struggles, and/or pain.  If this is an entrance, expect to return to get things you forgot.  This month gives you time to slow down and relax before the energy of creativity, travel and movement forward comes to the Northeast next month.   Enjoy some downtime this month if you spend a lot of time in the Northeast.  If this is your office, you may want to work in other areas of your building this month.  The Southwest or the North would be a good prosperous location this month for a second work area!

East: this period has the potential for career development and also brings the potential to increase your permanent and yearly energy in the East specific to your building.  Having a report done on your home or business will help you know what the energy is for your building’s permanent energy.  CLICK HERE for details on my hourly Interior Design/Feng Shui consultation.  To learn more about having your personalized Feng Shui Report done online Click the link: Online Feng Shui report.

Southeast:  this energy could bring the potential for wealth and fame, and the potential to be a pillar in the community this month, but with the yearly visiting energy here this area brings the potential for separation and/or sickness.  This may be a welcome separation coming in May, so choose to use this area specific to your goals.
