Start Your Luck at Home in 2009

January 04, 2009

Welcoming the New Year has been inevitably synonymous with welcoming a new life. And as the world turns a year older, many people are thrilled to learn what’s in store for them this 2009—the year of the Earth Ox in Chinese teachings.

And one way to achieve this is by learning this year’s Feng Shui forecast.

“The four pillars chart of 2009 has a balanced set of elements which gives us the opportunity to avail of good fortune,” says Feng Shui expert Marites Allen. “But to enhance further one’s personal luck, one needs to enhance the good areas and suppress the bad areas in one’s home to ensure a good year, as well as to control misfortunes.”

The internationally-recognized Feng Shui expert, who got her expertise from various world-renowned feng shui Grandmasters and Masters in Asia, advises people to display a Jade Ox in the Northeast direction of their living room as one way of improving luck this year.

“There are also other enhancers and cures that you should display in different areas of your home, depending on the lucky star that would land in specific directions.”

She explains further: “Example for this is the star of future prosperity that would land in the center of one’s home this year. This means that all family members in the house can enjoy tremendous good fortune when it comes to wealth and finances.”

“The future prosperity star not only brings wealth but also instant recognition,” she adds. “Homes that have a large open central area will attract long-term fortune luck for its residents. But as luck enhancers, display the nine glitter lamps in this part of your home. You should also display the 9 civilian rank badges in the center to bring you upward mobility.”

But not all stars would bring luck at home as the burglary star hits the east.
“This star brings loss, violence and bloodshed,” notes Marites. “Residents of east rooms and east facing houses are thus vulnerable to being cheated, usually resulting in financial loss. At its worst, this star brings physical danger.”

She says that if one’s house is facing east, one needs to place appropriate remedies.

“You must be especially cautious and should not trust others easily. The most effective remedy is to display the doubled-horned rhinoceros or elephant with trunk up. But it’s better if you display both. You may also hang small rhinos made carved from blue stones onto your handbag to protect against snatch thieves.”

More 2009 Forecasts
On January 17, Marites will be providing high-level Feng Shui forecast and consultation services to guests, including top executives and famous celebrities, through her annual Philippine Feng Shui Updates at the Grand Ballroom of the Renaissance Hotel in Makati City.

“There’s more to learn about this year’s luck as both lucky and unlucky stars land in all directions of our home. Also, it’s always best to learn how we would be able to attract positive life energies, or chi.”

Aptly themed “Dare to Dream,” the 2009 Updates aims to guide people to increase their luck in the Year of the Earth Ox, with general forecasts about romance, career, travel, life-changing matters, and other positive and negative things to look out for the coming year.
