Feng Shui 2008 Prediction

Feng Shui 2008 Prediction and forecast is meant to be a guide to ensure you read your animal sign to that of western sign with some accuracy.

I hope this tip finds you all in the Best of Health and Happiness!

Well it's that time of year again, where one year closes and another soon will begin. We are leaving from the Universal year #9 ( the year of endings) and going into the Universal Year #1 ( the year of NEW beginnings) Please be advised, that although 'Flying Star Analysis' is known for its "exact ability and accuracy" these predictions are just that;they are ONLY predictions - THUS NOT WRITTEN IN STONE !

To get even a more precise outlook (awareness) of what the Chinese year of the Earth Rat will bring it is also advised that you take a look at your PERSONAL YEAR NUMBER as well.

In 2008 we will be entering the numerological year of #1. Thus, 2+0+0+8 = 10. Then reduced 1+0 = 1. If you read the explanation of the Number 1 year, it will give you a good picture of where the mindset of most of the world will be at.

Be also advised that the Chinese Animal signs also have a Western corresponding sign. These corresponding signs are as follows. It is also advised that you also read the Flying Star analysis for that corresponding sign - whereas you will find that both will apply equally.

* CORRESPONDING = Similar or equivalent in character or function.
1. RAT corresponds to Western sign of Sagittarius
2. OX ............................................. Capricorn
3. TIGER ............................................. Aquarius
4. RABBIT ............................................. Pisces
5.. DRAGON .............................................. Aries
6. SNAKE .............................................. Taurus
7. HORSE .............................................. Gemini
8. SHEEP .............................................. Cancer
9. MONKEY .............................................. Leo
10 ROOSTER .............................................. Virgo
11. DOG .............................................. Libra
12. PIG .............................................. Scorpio

EXAMPLE: I was born in the Western sign of Virgo and in the Chinese year of the Snake. Thus I would read the 'Flying Star Analysis' for Snake, then because Rooster corresponds to the Western sign of Virgo,I would also read the 'Flying Star Analysis for Rooster'.

If I was reading my Daily horoscope for Virgo, I would also read the Daily horoscope for Taurus, because Snake corresponds to the Western sign of Taurus. Note: I find that when I do this, the daily horoscope seems to apply much more accurately!

Salt Lamps

Feng shui -salt lamp

Question: I have a Himalayan salt lamp which I placed in the SW corner of my home. However a friend told me that in Feng Shui, salt lamps are bad. Is this true?

Answer:Salt is a powerful cleansing agent and it can have the properties of cleansing any space. That is why salt is used in space clearing rituals, particularly when you are moving into a new home, or you need to cleanse stagnant energy from a piece of old furniture or a property where something bad has just taken place such as an illness or a death. However, when using salt to cleanse,you always humbly ask permission from any spirits that may be lingering there still before using the salt; otherwise some people say you could anger the spirits.

Salt lamps on the other hand are extremely harmful and they do not even have the power to cleanse. Salt lamps will soak all your chi energy from you leaving you feeling listless and tired. Salt lamps absorb all the good energy from the room so I strongly recommend that you remove it. Otherwise you will feel your essence flowing out of you making you sick even. Surely you must already be feeling it already?

This question and answer are taken off from 'ask Aunt Agga' of World of Feng Shui magazine.

Feng Shui tip for home.
You will learn a few basic situations to avoid when selecting a home.

*Your Front Door
Do not directly face a church,temple,cemetery or railway because the qi will be too concentrated.

*Gap Between Building
If the gap between two building is narrow, it can suck nourishing sheng qi (positive energy)from your home.

*Facing T-Junction
A front door facing onto a T-junction or at the end of a cul-de-sac allows qi to flow too quickly towards you; it also means, from a practical point of view,that headlights will shine straight into your home.

*Large Freeway
Living near a large freeway will make qi flash past rather than stop awhile to nourish land, building and people.

*Under Flight Paths
You need peace and quiet so avoid land under flight paths, next to railway lines,factories or on major roads.

*End of a Bridge
Your front door should not be close to either end of a bridge. The energy comes from many directions and becomes concentrated at these points, preventing relaxation.

Spiky plants and plastic flowers

Spiky hair style, spiky plants, spiky hair and whatever spiky....plastic flowers, plastic hanger and whatever plastic. In Feng Shui, there are many arguments about placing spiky plants and plastic flowers in the apartment, etc.

After a long argument, a person know as 'fsa' reply :
Feng Shui practitioners need to be aware of this:
when we do Feng Shui, we look at the world from a Feng Shui perspective and make choices with a Feng Shui value.

From a Feng Shui perspective, we have a "Gan-Ying" or a "mutual response" to the environment and to the everyday objects around us, This mutual resonance operates on 3 levels: physical, emotional and symbolic, so if your client find spiky plants or plastic flowers physical appealing, emotional fulfilling and symbolically empowering, then by all means let your client use them, even though you may feel otherwise with your Feng Shui value.

Feng Shui rules are only there to reinforce its value system, and that is in a Feng Shui environment, we prefer the natural to the artificial, the honest over the false and the beautiful over the ugly. But again, that is only the FS value preference; others who don't like Feng Shui may not share in this paradigm.

Also, what is natural, honest and beautiful vary from person to person and from master to master, so in the end, your client the users, have to make the final choice and accept the consequence. Feng Shui is just there as a guideline and a value system to help them make choices and you, the FS practitioner, is no more than a consultant and an adviser with a Feng Shui biase.

So lets not get on our high horse and tell others what is correct or incorrect thing to do, and be honest with ourself that we have a biased way of looking at the world.

Elements of Argument

Many a time we are so engross in winner an argument, or how to structure an argument. Do you know that feng shui have an effect on argument ? Below I will tell you; How to feng shui your home after an argument

This is important, because argument can spark-off unnecessary bad luck at home

Obviously, you don't want any of that negative energy hanging around your home. Remove bad chi instantly with a quick cleanse of your home.

Sprinkle a handful of sea salt on the floor of the room where the argument took place. Salt in feng shui terms acts rather like salt does in real life - namely, as a substance that absorbs surrounding moisture. According to feng shui, salt attracts any negative chi energy that may be circulating. Leave it overnight and vacuum it up the following morning, then repeat as necessary until all the bad vibes have dispersed.

This trick also helps with moving on from any bad relationship - friendship, sexual, whatever - leaving you refreshed with positive energy.. and ready to create your mischief all over again!

Feng Shui Remedy - Front and Back Door in Line

Remedy for front door is in direct line with the rear door, especially for those house with long hallway.

It is said that having a back door in direct alignment with the front will encourage the Qi (energy) to flow in and straight back out of the home without having time to meander. This can also signify your finances...coming in but going out just as fast or if not faster!

This will of course also depend on the Flying Star Chart of your home. The remedy for the situation above it used to try and slow down the energy. I find placing pictures or photos on the wall between the two doorways are great, in addition to plants etc. This helps to divert the energy into the other rooms of the home.

You do however have to be careful not to “block” the area off as this may lead to blockages
in your life so use common sense and try and be aware of what people so who enter your home. Where do they walk? How fast do they walk through the house? This will give you an indication of how the energy is flowing.

Placing the Waste Baskets in Feng Shui Term

In Feng Shui Term, we are talking about the Feng Shui Chi. In that sense, objects placing might affect the luck and health of the household.

Whenever I have heard about waste baskets, if you have it 'on show' as it were, at all, then you are apparently inviting bad instead of good.

Putting it near your cash register is even worse as far as I have heard.

So as you actually said yourself, yes you really are 'draining your income'away from yourself. Please, if you need to use a waste basket, hide it somewhere. I am sure you will notice the difference. If you can't fit it into a cupboard, then try putting it behind something. Just make sure its not visible to anyone.

Hope this help.

Is Feng Shui Superstitious

So much talk on Feng Shui; about bedroom feng shui,office feng shui,clearing of clutter for feng shui and many more.....Below is an article on "Is Feng Shui Superstitious?",by Howard Choy Sydney, March 2000

The Oxford dictionary defines superstition as “any blindly accepted belief or notion”. So people who think Feng Shui is superstitious would think that Feng Shui is a belief or a notion entertained regardless of any reason or logic.

Is this the case? Is it true that Feng Shui is just a belief? Is its analysis without reason or a theoretical framework?

Feng Shui is not superstitious…

Feng Shui is not just a belief. We do not need to have faith for Feng Shui to work. If we live in an environment with bad Feng Shui, sooner or later it will affect us somehow. We may not be aware that it is Feng Shui at work: we may just feel uncomfortable, or unsettled for some reason but can’t put words to it. Feng Shui has a paradigm and a terminology to describe this unbalanced state of being. The theoretical framework for Feng Shui is based on Chinese metaphysics whose origin comes from the observations of nature and the interaction of the yin and yang forces in our environment. There is a great deal of know-how that has been collected through the 2,000 – 3,000 years of evolution of Feng Shui practice.

On the other hand…

To say that Feng Shui is completely devoid of superstition is not true either. There are many examples of gross misinterpretations of the metaphysics, the classic example being an old Feng Shui method called “Wu-Yin-Xing-Li” – interpreting the auspiciousness of a dwelling according to the five sounds of an owner’s surname. This method was severely criticized by Han Dynasty scholar Wang-Chong (born 27 AD) and subsequently dropped out of Feng Shui practice.

Because Feng Shui involves a multi-disciplinary approach to its practice, we should not look at it only from a Western scientific point of view. Feng Shui is also an art. A large portion of Feng Shui analysis requires a personal and subjective interpretation of the given data. One needs to balance out the subjectivity with the objectivity of a given situation. To the Chinese, the brain is tied to the heart (Xin-Yi), so science and art can exist and should exist as one discipline, instead of two separate entities.

Ultimately, Feng Shui looks at the interaction of the environment with its user. Since the user is a human being and by nature we are a part rational and part irrational being, so Feng Shui has to be part scientific (rational) and part intuitive (irrational/superstitious) as well.

We have an irrational fear of superstition…

If we can accept the notion that everything in nature is composed of the yin and yang complimentary opposites, why can we not accept the fact that behind the rational thoughts are the intuitions and the irrational feelings that seem superstitious? Why can’t science and faith exist side by side? Western science does not have all the answers. Chinese science may be able to provide some of the missing answers. The sceptics are good at attacking irrationality and superstition but they don’t realise that in their zest for Western science and rationality, they are being irrational as well. They give more power to the devil than it deserves.

Feng Shui is unique…

In that it tries to work with the opposing forces of nature. It is extremely complex to practice even though the principles and the objectives are quite straightforward. It looks for balance and harmony, both inside our head as well as out there in the environment. To dismiss it as mere superstition is to throw away a valuable resource from the Chinese culture.

“The Westerner is a man of extremes, who fails to see the basic unity of positive and negative. He strives for the positive and denies the negative. He identifies himself with one extreme, which he makes the goal and god of his life. But the opposite still remains and reacts on him. Unable to reach his god, he finds his self divided, and being self-divided he creates one-sided things that split nature and in turn disrupt man and his order. He fights the devil within his heart and in fits of despair turns negative and creates destruction. He turns to science, technology and formulas to create machines that will bring happiness to man, only to discover that they also bring unhappiness. The happiness and suffering which he brought about he calls progress and thinks this is his mission in life”

Feng Shui Mirror Placement

Feng Shui Mirror

From my understanding, using mirror as a form of Feng Shui object can be effective in some ways. Mirrors can be used creatively in many ways. Mirrors have been described as the “life-line” of Feng Shui. It is used for cure or remedy in feng shui. However, there are rules to follow. If use it correctly, it provides the energy for cure and remedy.

1. The mirror is best to reflect something pleasant, such as an attractive view or landscape, which will bring the vibrant energy of a garden or scene into the house.

2. When placing a mirror to enhance a space or "cure" an area be aware of what is reflected in it - or a problem could arise.

3. Mirrors should never distort or cut into the image of a person as this symbolically distorts or cuts their chi.

4. Mirrors should always have frames to contain the chi of their image.

5. Do not hang a mirror opposite a door or a window. If you do this they will reflect the chi back at itself and will restrict its flow around the house.

6. Do not hang mirrors opposite of each other. For this will indicate restlessness and is not recommended.

7. Mirror should be kept clean.

8. Replaced if broken.

9. Reflect your whole image.

10. Should not be placed opposite the bed.


Remember, other reflective objects can act as mirrors. Be aware of what they reflect and their positions. Objects that can act as mirrors are highly polished furniture, metal pots, glass bowls, shiny surfaces.

Mirrors are useful in small spaces where they apparently can double the size of small spaces. For example:


When part of a house is "missing", in other words irregularly shaped, a mirror can be used to effectively recreate the missing space and thus make a regular shape.


Use mirrors in dark corners and at bends in passages to help the chi to circulate around these awkward places.


In long corridors the chi moves too fast. Mirrors offer one method of slowing down the chi It is best to place several mirrors in a staggered manner to reflect pleasant images on the opposite wall.

If you have just another wall down this long corridor then you can place a plant in the middle of it or against the back wall to slow the fast moving chi.
Hope this piece of information is helpful to you.

Mandarin ducks indicate good relationships and helpful mentor. In feng shui, displaying the 100 birds crystal ball in the south part of the home to ward off all forms of bad luck and in a prominent place at the office to bring good business luck.


The horse symbolizes power, strength, fame, speed, endurance and success. It is incredibly auspicious to display not one but many of this handsome creature in the home. Horses or Pony can also bring good fortune but also lots of happiness and pleasure as well.

By Apex Lim

Basically, these shapes are; square or cube, rectangle, the circle or sphere, the wave or curve liner, and the pyramid or triangle. Each of this shape represents or associate with five of the elements; earth, wood, metal, water and fire. It is possible to use these shapes to incorporate subtle yet effective feng shui harmony into buildings. Beside the shapes, elements, direction where the building sits also plays a important part in feng shui. Element Shapes can also be used as a means of enhancing or exhausting certain sectors based on either Flying Star combinations or the 8 Mansions formula.

Zoo pays feng shui expert to aid monkeys

feng shui to aid monkeys

Tue Feb 13, 5:17 PM ET

The Los Angeles Zoo paid $4,500 to an expert in the ancient Chinese art of feng shui to ensure three endangered golden monkeys on loan from China can have a strong life force.

Consulting the feng shui expert was part of the cost for a $7.4 million enclosure for the golden monkeys debuting at the zoo later his year. Feng shui focuses on balance in design to promote health and

Feng shui is in demand among high-end architects and interior
designers, but Beverly Hills-based feng shui expert Simona Mainini said the Los Angeles Zoo's effort may be a first in animal enclosure design.

"It's very experimental, " Mainini said. "We don't have any books on feng shui for monkeys. We just have to assume that Darwin is correct and that there is a connection and what is good for humans is good for monkeys."

The exhibit for the male and two female golden monkeys is nearing completion and they are expected to arrive by the end of the year,once China approves the export permit.

Exhibit designers from the Seattle-based Portico Group said the enclosure was designed to re-create the feel of a rural Chinese village.

"The viewing building has a Chinese character," said principal architect Charles Mays, who hire Mainini. "We thought it would be more
authentic if we went that extra step and made sure it was done with good feng shui."

Mainini said she tweaked the plans to maximize the good qi (pronounced chee). For example, she recommended moving a door on the observation tower or adding a fountain or water feature to "soften, with moisture,the harsh energy" in that area of the tower.

The city will pay the Chinese government $100,000 a year for the
period of the 10-year loan of the simians.

"The idea is to get people beyond just looking at the animals so they experience how the animals and people live," zoo General Manager John Lewis (news, bio, voting record) said. "So when people see that a species is endangered, maybe they'll feel motivated to do something to save them."

Golden monkeys, which weigh about 30 pounds, have blue faces, long
hair and make a catlike meow.

Practical Feng Shui Color And Flow

Feng Shui Color And Flow

Most of the information that is available concerning Feng Shui is highly over-simplified. It often comes in the form of out-of-context eastern principals, mixed in with basic interior design horse sense from the west, to form a hybrid which many professional
Feng Shui analysts agree can be as harmful as it is helpful. Feng Shui is more than just choosing certain colors, or “getting rid of clutter”, as many books and articles will have you believe. It is actually an extremely complex system of mathematical formulas that give highly specific advice based on the type of home, its layout, and its time of construction. There are no simple answers in Feng Shui, however there is something we can learn from the methods the ancients used to derive these principals.
Real Feng Shui is a system that has been evolving over thousands of years. The concept behind this design form is the idea that energy or “chi” flows through everything. Feng Shui is an attempt to maximize the flow of positive chi through a space to benefit the lives of the people within that setting. Feng Shui is originally based on the I Ching, an ancient Chinese text of mystical origins. Over the years successive schools of thought have come to dominate this decorative philosophy. As each new movement came to power, they refined the formulas and functions of previous schools. In this ongoing process of refinement, every possible arrangement of objects was tested against numerous people’s emotional and spiritual reaction to them over thousands of years. These reactions allowed the ancients to slowly improve their diagrams for the placement of objects.
This ancient mathematical formula for laying out the design of a setting does seem to be a sound method for improving the quality of a room’s décor. While this may be due to the ancients having determined the way chi flows, their real accomplishment might instead have been to develop a systemized mathematical representation of a wide scale, long term psychological study. While trying to determine the flow of energy, they may have instead determined the basic principals of design that elicit positive responses in humans, by experimentally testing and recording peoples reactions to different object settings.
Real Feng Shui is extraordinarily specific, and complex. The only way to do real Feng Shui is either to become a student of this art, and painstakingly learn the many principals and subtleties it requires, or to hire a professional to do an analysis and work over of your home. Either way, use of this design style requires a large sacrifice, and is outside the realm of most people’s time and money budget.
However, Feng Shui does teach us something that is very useful when decorating your home. The ancient thinkers who developed this idea derived it by simply paying attention to the feeling of objects in different spaces. This is a process that every person has it within their power to do. Everyone has taste, everyone has feelings. By simply getting in touch with your inner critic, you can become the source for your own personal Feng Shui. No matter how specific they were, a Philosopher from a thousand years ago is not going to understand the spiritual and emotional nuances of you, your family, and your home as well as you do. By using the strategy rather than the formula of Feng Shui, you can develop a highly personalized design that is a true expression of yourself.
Walk into a room, and see how it makes you feel. Notice the colors, the objects, and their placement. What do they evoke in you? Is the room comfortable? Is it calming or invigorating? Maybe there is something wrong in the room, even if you can’t tell exactly what it is, register that feeling. If you are attentive, you will start to get sensitive to the psychological influences that placement and design have on your own mind.

Feng Shui Colour/Color

Colors have very strong and individual effects on people. Different shades will have radically different results on people’s mental behavior. Dark colors can either be relaxing or depressing, light colors can be uplifting or annoying, and extreme colors can be exhilarating or aggravating. Pay attention to how these colors make you feel. When you visit other peoples homes, or even their shops or offices, pay attention to the effect that walking into a room has on you. Sometimes you will enter a space and feel naturally relaxed. Other places can have a negative effect, making you feel uncomfortable or agitated for no apparent reason. Remember the colors and the shades of these rooms, especially if you have a particularly strong response to one.
Colors also affect the nature of interactions, and when you enter a new space you should always pay attention to the way people behave to one another. If there is a room in your home where people tend to get into arguments, reassess the colors in that room. Bright or extreme colors can irritate people’s eyes and increase their metabolism, making them more likely to fight. Darker rooms can put people in a bad mood and make them lethargic. Color and placement are not the only things that influence interactions, but by paying attention you may be able to understand the subtle influence it can have.


In traditional Feng Shui, the goal is to maximize the flow of positive chi in an area. While you will probably not be able to detect the essence of the energy of a space, you can increase the feeling of flow in a room by paying attention to the way people and objects move through the space.
The flow you want to achieve is in the essence of the room. You want there to be easy access for people moving through the room, as well as in and out of it. You want objects to be able to move from their storage, into use, and back without adding to clutter. This kind of flow is a mixture of organization and design that focuses on removing blockages and allowing easy movement through every area.
You will be able to feel whether a room has flow just by walking into it. There are tiny currents of air that run through every space. We do not generally notice these currents, however using your intuition you can just barely perceive this air. The difference between greater and lesser currents will be translated into your mind as greater or lesser flow. As always, make yourself sensitive to the subtleties of the space.


It is important to allow yourself to be wrong. If you don’t make mistakes, you won’t learn anything. Pay attention to emotional variations you feel from placing different decorations and colors in different spaces. At a certain point, stop and simply exist in the room, remaining attentive to the feel of the space. Occasionally, make small changes, and observe the emotional and interactive differences.
If you don’t have the time or strength to constantly move furnishings and furniture around, then try visualizing different scenarios. Sit somewhere quiet, close your eyes, and imagine the room in a different style. Imagine yourself in the room, and try to incorporate every detail in the room into the setting. Feel how your emotions respond to such a setting. Pay attention to any problems you may feel. Allow yourself access to the subconscious of your mind, and trust its natural inclinations, as it will pick up on problems and solutions that you won’t consciously understand. Use color charts and pictures to help with the imagination process.
Feng Shui is a very respectable form of interior decorating with a long and rich history. However, it was originally based on simple trial and error, as ancient Chinese thinkers explored the many different ways that positioning and design can affect the most subtle workings of the human mind. Today you can try to recreate that method, by experimenting with yourself and your surroundings to produce a room that will affect you and your family in a positive way. While you probably won’t achieve the accuracy of the ancients in your first attempt, each try will educate you as to the style and design that suites you best as well as the way it affects you. Exploring this further can allow you a creative outlet enabling you to get in touch with the very basic nature of art that exists within you.
