It was an unexpected request from a lovely lady in Wimbledon, when she asked me about a feng shui position for her recently acquired terracotta warrior from Xian in China. When I arrived at the property earlier this year in July, this replica of the original warriors was placed in front of the house facing a little away from the home and not in the best feng shui position.
After familiarising myself with the house layout and the garden layout and measuring the site of the home (otherwise known as the back) I started to have some good inklings about where this chappie might belong. I had to take into consideration lawn space, trampoline space, visual appeal etc. as well as my ‘sensing the chi’ aspect.

Does this time of year freak you out a little? Do you feel grateful for the year just past by? Or do you feel secretly afraid that if you don’t ‘get it right this time’ then another year will see your initial hopes and dreams die?
Do you listen to knowledge outside of yourself and then regret it? Do you get attracted to mentoring programs then find that they simply cannot provide bespoke enough advice and don’t really teach you more than you already know? Read more →

Adjusting to the Seasons can be difficult sometimes when we live our lives very insulated from nature, working in offices with artificial orangey/yellow lighting instead of full spectrum lights, taking the tube, going home to stay in or go out into public transport etc. Air conditioning/heating/umbrellas – all insulate us from the forces of nature, so sometimes our bodies don’t know how to make a good transition.

How the natural forces of the universe affect the energies of the year is a fascinating subject called forecasting and refers to our Heaven Luck. I prefer the term forecast rather than prediction as I consider it more accurate and it also creates more psychological space to harness our Human Luck in order to better weather the forecast whereas prediction somehow sounds too final. We are never meant to feel victimized by the forecasts as this creates self-fulfilling prophecies, however, if we are forewarned we are forearmed and can fine-tune our strategies.
Each person is born in a year within the 12 Celestial Animal Cycle and express some character traits and energetics of the particular animal. Of course, no one wants to be the Pig, Dog or Rat but prefer to be the Tiger or the Dragon! The full Chinese Horoscope is based on more complex formulae involving your Year, Month, Day and Hour of birth, however, the below represent a very general outlook for each Chinese Animal sign and are meant to help you weaken or avoid bad luck, and increase your alignment to the good luck. Please do understand that both your individual detailed horoscope and the Feng Shui of your home or office will greatly contribute to how you combine with the energies and if you want to engage at a deeper level then consider having your full horoscope ‘opened’ or a full professional Feng Shui consultation. DIY horoscopes or Feng Shui are not recommended!
Wishing you a peaceful, healthy and prosperous 2013 Year of the Water Snake!

As the nation starts to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, I researched the Feng Shui of Buckingham Palace and also the Chinese Horoscope of our inspiring leader Queen Elizabeth II. I came to some very interesting conclusions that I’d like to share with you here.
The full in-depth technical article will be offered to specialist publications but the broad sweep is as follows:
Using the Power
The long narrow approach to Buckingham Palace brings powerful chi to the front gates in a direct funnel, usually associated with sha chi or poison chi. The gates, roundabout and statue help to deflect the chi so that it doesn’t hit the palace entrance full force. Read more →
I just came across this lovely science based website and was delighted to see a little article on the Chinese Spring Equinox perspective. Thanks to Deborah Byrd for the lovely suggestions on how to celebrate Spring.
I also like her post about the equinox as it has a great illustration of the movement of the planets.
Ver is Latin for Spring, hence Vernal Equinox. Happy Chun Fun!
