As we all know, Florida has been the State which the whole country has been focused on since November 7th. It is undeniably in the southeast section of the United States. This is interesting from a Feng Shui perspective because the direction of Southeast this year has been an unlucky direction. Each year there is a direction which is considered unlucky and it is to be avoided for a number of activities. It coincides with the direction associated with the Chinese Zodiac sign for the year. This has been the Year of the Dragon, which is linked to East/Southeast.
In a Feng Shui consultation, this has been one of two areas which I have advised clients to avoid doing any remodeling in (the southeast portion of your house inside or the southeast sector of your backyard or front yard.) If someone goes ahead and does any significant remodeling or demolition in the accident-prone area, it can cause a variety of problems, complications or delays.
The other negative area this year was North. Over the years, I have received quite a bit of feedback from clients who had remodels or additions in the wrong areas and heard their aggravating experiences. On a large scale, certain parts of the country associated with those same directions can have problems which range from natural disasters, severe weather, political upheaval, or social unrest. As an example, back in 1992 the direction of southwest had the annual negative influences associates with fire, pain, arguments, and disaster. We here in Southern California the southwest part of the nation) experienced the L.A. riots.
These annual influences repeat themselves every nine years (solar) and every twelve years (lunar). The two negative areas to avoid construction in for 2001 will be southwest once again (last time was 1992) and South/South-east since it is linked with the Year of the Snake.
To further clarify: remodeling does not mean you have to be afraid of putting up a shelf or painting a wall in one of these two areas. But substantial changes, like moving walls, pulling up flooring, and outside digging--these are the activities which can stir up the negative vibrations. Even having a neighbor doing construction in alignment with your property can be a potential problem (above and beyond the obvious noise factor.)
If you want to learn more about the annual influences in every area of your house, contact me for a copy of Master Sang’s book: The Principles of Feng Shui. You can also take a class with me.
And if you have been a client of mine, seriously consider having me do an Annual Update Reading for you.
