2014 Money and Prosperity Tip for Rooster

Rooster's are known for the management abilities. One of my clients, a classic Rooster, is the manager of several up and coming musical acts. She's handles everything from their booking, billings, transportation, even their social media. She's always juggling so many things she barely has time for her own life.

This year the Horse energy is crossing her path at a 90 degree angle. This means opportunities can come out of nowhere. And with her schedule as tight as it is she may not feel ready to take on any new acts no matter how much her gut tells her that these guys are going to be stars.

To prepare for the new opportunities coming this music manager needs to make a list of her projects (the bands) and write down briefly what they have been able to accomplish thus far and what she sees for them in the future. If a band is under-performing she doesn't need to do anything about it until the new opportunity shows up. When it does she will be ready to let go of what's not working and grab hold of what will work.

For Rooster, I gave the Feng Shui cure of a sailing ship in my book, Chinese Astrology 2014 Year of the WoodHorse. This was so the Rooster can sail through no matter how rough the seas get. If you're a Rooster go out and look for a picture of a sailing ship that's actually sailing. Don't use a boat that's moored, drifting, and especially avoid any haunted ghost ships. You're looking for a bright, happy picture of a sailboat sailing along on a calm day.

 Place your picture so the boat appears to be sailing into the room. So the back of the boat would be pointed towards the door and the front of the boat would be pointed away from the door. If your boat is pointed out the door then the ship has to go out, get the gold, treasure and spices and bring them all the way back to you...that can be a long wait.

If you happen to already have a picture of a sailing ship in your home you can move it to a spot in your living room. Photographs work too. You can also use models of ships but make sure the model is free of dust. Ships in bottles are less effective because they are trapped in the bottle. Place the representation of the ship and you'll see opportunities come to your door.

2014 Feng Shui Money Remedy for People Born in the Year of the Dog

A couple of my clients, both of whom are born in the Year of the Dog, started out this year with a cold. Dog natives had a tough time last year in the Snake year and coming out of that into 2014 created a releasing some of the negative emotions and stuff that had built up. And for them this manifested into a cold.

If you're born in the Year of the Dog and you're in this situation you are probably feeling very impatient as you're waiting for your head to clear. You want to get to the good stuff this year, 2014, has to offer. But it's best not to push it. You will be able to move forward more quickly after a full recovery.

Give yourself a week or so to rest and heal. In the meantime you can move this process forward by energetically clearing your home. You can do this using sage and the Native American-inspired method of smudging.

In my book, Chinese Astrology 2014 yearof the Wood Horse, I recommend sprinkling cinnamon on your front porch to attract money opportunities. You can take some cinnamon and toss it out there but you can also take some additional steps to increase the prosperity energy. 

Preparing your porch and welcoming money: First make a visual examination of your porch. Does anything need to be repaired. If there's broken flower pots then toss them. If there's floor boards that are needing repairs then have this done as soon as possible. Remember all new energy comes into your life through the front door so you don't want any tripping hazards slowing energy down.

Move your welcome mat so you can sweep your porch. Sweep from the door outward and visualize all negative energy being swept away as you do. Then sprinkle the cinnamon and put the welcome mat back down. You can sprinkle a bit more cinnamon on top of the mat. When done right, Feng Shui cures bring results in the first week so watch for new money opportunities to come your way. Any money that comes, even a small amount, is a sign you did things right and that you can build on that energy.

If you need help with this or you want to know more about what's coming up for you in 2014 contact me for details on getting a private consultation.

Predictions for Rabbit for 2014

Everyone underestimates gentle Rabbit probably because he's so cute. But Rabbit is a very powerful sign of the Chinese Zodiac. He sits between the Tiger and the Dragon and keeps these two forces apart. That's amazing. Rabbit has strong intuition and understands people. He's sensitive, kind and an extremely valuable friend to have.

This year, the Year of the Wood Horse, Rabbit will have opportunities to manifest the vision he's held on to for so long. Rabbit will be noticed by others and can find people who will share and support Rabbit's ambitions. But Horse energy can move faster than a little bunny so in my book, Chinese Astrology 2014 Yearof the Wood Horse, I recommend that Rabbit create a Wish Box to help capture money and opportunities. But I've found something that will work even better. A Treasure Bowl. 

Treasure Bowl from Formosa Art

This beautiful wood bowl from Formosa Art is carved from walnut and polished to a fine shine. It measures over 16 inches in diameter and about 12 inches high. It goes with many styles of d├ęcor and most importantly it's a great Feng Shui cure for attracting wealth. Place your Treasure Bowl in your business office or home office. Place it in the Wealth area (the far left corner from the door). Or you can place this Treasure Bowl near your front door to attract career opportunities and promotions. Once you have the job you want move the bowl to the Wealth corner of your office to continue to attract money throughout the year.

Prosperity Tip for Tiger for 2014

In 2014 Year of the Wood Horse there are two lucky zodiac signs and one of these is Tiger. Tiger is a sign harmonious with Horse. Tiger understands Horse's powerful energy (mostly because Tiger is pretty powerful himself). Tiger's best asset this year is his ability to wait for just the right moment to take action. There will be plenty of opportunities this year but not everything will be an ideal situation. For Tiger it's important to have in mind what you want and as opportunities show up on your doorstep then decide whether it's a good deal for you. You don't have to take every opportunity this year because there will be so many.

For example, Gloria is born in the year of the Tiger. This year she wants a better job that pays more money. The extra money will allow her to build an emergency fund as well as helping her add to her retirement savings. In my book, Chinese Astrology 2014 Year of the Wood Horse, I suggest that Tigers hang a wind chime made of Chinese coins on their front porch or balcony. This Shower of Coins Wind Chime will create better luck for her when she's job hunting. Gloria will hang up the wind chime on February 1st, right after Chinese New Year.

Advice for Rats during 2014 Year of the Horse

If you're born in the Year of the Rat you might be feeling a little nervous as we enter the Horse year. Much of what you read in Chinese Astrology will say that Horse years are very bad for Rats. But there are lots of things you can do to make this a great year.

When the opposite animal to your own comes up it's said that animal will "steal your energy". For the next year a lot of attention will be paid to Horse. Which leaves only left-over energy for Rat. Little Rat doesn't want to get trampled by all this crazy energy. And you don't just want to survive, you want to prosper.

The solution is to distract the Horse from taking your energy. One great distraction is a Tiger. The Tiger is an animal that is both friendly to Horse and to you, born year of the Rat. In the business world this is like networking with influential friends who can open doors of opportunity for you, doors that may not open if it was just you knocking.

I suggest you find yourself a representation of a Tiger. It can be a picture, statue, piece of jewelry, tiger-print shirt, bedspread, the gemstone Tiger's Eye, a little stuffed get the idea. And have this around you especially during periods where you want to have energy and opportunity for success.

Snakes and Skin, Horses and Feet

January is the last month of the Year of the Snake. We will then move into the Year of the Horse.

When you consider the physical aspects of these animals, when we think Snake we think skin. The energy of this year would remind us to take care of our skin. Snakes are known for shedding their skin. They get a whole new skin. But for us we just have the one skin and so taking care of it is important. And when you think about the 12 year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac, this will be the last reminder we get to care for our skin for the next dozen years.

How do you take care of your skin?

Besides the usual stuff that most people do I like to use Aloe Vera on my skin. I love the healing qualities of Aloe and I think it has helped my skin over the years. I started using it regularly back in 2001 when we were in the previous Year of the Snake. Recently I've found Argan Oil which I really like. It's a lighter oil and I put it on at night and wake up with skin dewy soft.

What new skin care items did you start using in the Year of the Snake? 

Next month we'll be in the energy of the Horse. Then we will need to pay attention to our feet, ankles, and legs (including knees). And by caring for those parts of our body we will be in harmony with the energy and we'll help ourselves towards success.
