Feng Shui Energy Advisory

January 23rd is the start of the Year of The Water Dragon. The New Year is always a time for reflection and planning for the time ahead. In Feng Shui it is also the time to make note of the changing energies and how they relate to you, your home, and to your business.

Energy is in Constant Motion

Energy is in constant motion. We have learned about the Mayan calendar and its cycles and wonder what that means for the future. We can be more certain about the cycles described in Feng Shui and what they mean.

grandmotherThink of the energies, we call them stars as it is easier to imagine them, as people. Each star has its own personality. Some stars are happy and bring good energy with them. Maybe similar to that friend you always look forward to seeing when they visit. Some stars are less happy. That could be your hypochondriac uncle. Another star may have a nurturing energy. Could that be Grandma? Some like to fight and cause problems. I think you get the picture.

Who is Coming to Visit

DancingNow imagine you have a big house with many rooms. The stars-people- come to visit and each one has a room in the house. Every year they choose a different room to stay in. As you move around your house and spend time with them you are going to be affected by their energy. Oh and by the way they are sharing a room with one of the other people. So you have to take into consideration the interaction between them as well as with you. Some get along. Some don’t. Some are jealous. Some are celebrating. But some like to keep it quiet. Some are good dancers. Other couples step all over each other’s feet. Some are in a creative mood. Relationships are getting more interesting now aren’t they?

Year of the Dragon

We are coming up fast on the end of 2011 and the start of the New Year. And we can celebrate twice, but more on that later. Each year is ruled by an animal in the Chinese zodiac and 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. Each animal in the zodiac has its own special characteristics. It belongs to an element, a personality, direction, a time of year and a time of day.

Dragon is in charge

The dragon is ruled by wood and, is found in the spring portion of the year and gets along well with the monkey and rat. These are the people a dragon person feels the most affinity for and they will support him well. The hours of the day are also divided up and assigned to the 12 animals of the zodiac. We think of the day as 24 hours but the Chinese divide it into twelve-two hour periods. Dragon rules the hours from 7 AM to 9 AM. Just as in Western astrology we consider not only our sun sign but also our rising sign. In Chinese astrology you can consider the animal of your birth hour as an influence on your character. The dragon is at home in the East.

Dragon is a power animal

The dragon is one of the power animals and considered to be strong and self assured. They can be fiery, passionate and generous. On the other hand they can be arrogant, demanding over bearing and impetuous. Each animal has both positive and negative characteristics.
