Feng Shui aspects for July—Disclaimer: These aspects are strictly the opinion, research, and observations of Mary Shurtleff and are no way to be used as fact but only insight. Use you own common sense to discover what is right for you.
Remember: This is a #2 year of the mind and the visionary and this is a year we are all connected to heaven’s energy. Use it wisely to manifest that which you want and let go of all you don’t want. With Uranus in retrograde it is a great time to LET GO of all of that, which confines you. That is possibly why unemployment is so high. Some companies has taken advantage of their employees for years and not lived a good karmic path. These companies, in keeping with karmic law, are losing money and must release their employees from their bondage, as well. Right now, it may feel or look like a bad thing, but in the long run it gives these employees a new beginning to create anything they want. The changes occurring in the world are necessary for people to take back their power from employers, government, church, spouse, whatever. The strong-arm patriarchal society, as we know it, is giving way to a gentler spiritual maternal energy.
I am seeing men emerging as gentler spirits. I have seen it in my husband. He has had to put his demanding schedule and personality aside and attend to the needs of his aging father. He has had to calm his gruff, business-like exterior and allow a more compassionate, caring side to emerge. It has been a miracle to watch. He and his father have developed a wonderful place in their life. What a gift to both of them. What a gift to me to watch this process.
With the #2 visionary-Heaven Energy and the retrograde factor of Uranus, we may see more deaths of those who have been ill or tired has awhile. This will give them the peace and courage to transition from this realm to the other. Do not be afraid of it. We may also see more unexpected deaths, as well, as some spirits just chose to leave the transitional energy happening on earth right now. We will also see more unexpected pregnancies as new spirits wish to come to earth to help the energy shift. We will also see multiple births, as we are seeing in multiple deaths. As a space vacates, it makes room for the new. This shift may stay until December. Remember: Expect the unexpected. If you have been ill, instant good health may be stored. It is up to you to create it.
This month creates a monthly pattern, which mirrors the yearly pattern of the flying stars.
We are halfway through the year. This is the time to shake things up in your home. Move things around, clean, wash your mirrors and windows for clear thinking and seeing. Renew all salt water cures and reset all adjustments.
Last month the #1 of water was in the middle of the ba-gua, which would have promoted the lots of rain we had in June. This month the #9 of fire is the middle so we can expect unusually hot this month. Place water in the center of your home to offset the heat and slow down the energy. This #9 in the center with the annual ba-gua will move energy fast. That is why the year seems to be flying by. The #9 is like a wildfire sweeping up all in its path and going for a ride.
The #1 of water and career flies to the NW of the Pig and Dog. Place water or symbols of water in this area for uplift for career energy. Place objects for career opportunities. If you are looking for a new career this is the month to put the wheels in motion.
The #2 of earth and illness goes into the W of Rooster. Illness is not only physical body but also mental outlook. Place your metal wu-lous or calabash in this area to help protect the physical body. You may place anything of metal such as a five-tier pagoda, wind chime, metal abacus, or metal Ki Luns/ Pi-yaos fu-dogs, or a metal fan to weaken the illness earth energy. You may also place peacock feather in your home to bring in the energy of the Goddess Kwan Yin. You may also place a White Tara or Laughing Buddha to bring not only a feeling of comfort and peace but laughter and love.
The #3 of wood and conflict moves to the NE. With a #3 of conflict already there, this could be an extremely confining and stressful month for the Tiger or Ox. Place a RED laughing Buddha or added red in this area to burn off some of the conflict. There may be emotional ups and downs with family and friend as new boundaries are being set. Set a Gold Kwan Yin or Buddha in the North East of your home to offset this aspect. For relationship problems, set them by the bed. Have patience. It will pass. Place a golden prayer or Mandela of peace in this area for comfort. Use small metal in this area to chop the #3 Wood conflict. Use small fire or reds to activate the energy of the original Northeast #8 Earth. The elephant listens with his ear to the ground, therefore, to promote better listening practices, to avoid misunderstandings, lay a green elephant figurine on his side on your work desk or place where conversations or teachings are held.
Those residing in the NE, Tiger, and Ox may feel the need to change jobs, relationship, etc. This conflict alignment may be the final straw for those to make this difference in there life. Be wise, calm, and informed if this should happen to you. However, with Uranus in retrograde, a sudden and unexpected decision to change these things may occur. Don’t panic, God closes a door but opens a window. Place the crossed swords in the NE of the home to protect against lawsuit.
The #4 of wood and literary recognition is flying to the South. Place 4 bamboos in this area. Also place your literary works, fine art or photography or video works in this area for higher recognition. This month, be careful of too much water in this area because of the lifted romance energy in a peach blossom. It may cause a wondering eye or third party interference.
The #5 flies into North creating a double #5. PLACE A FRESH-- SALT WATER CURE!!!! If your front door faces the North, place a salt line at the front door. You may also place a 6-rod wind chime.
The #6 of power and authority flies into the SW of woman energy. This is an excellent time for fortune and money gain. Place 6 Chinese Coins or gold ingots and jewels in this area. Since metal is so strong in this area be careful of all sharp metal objects this month aka-knives, scissors, car accidents, etc. Place a crystal or peacock feathers in your car.
The #7 of creativity flies into the East. The east and Rabbit becomes extremely stressful because of the double #7’s and the three killings. Place water, water, water, in this area to break down the metal. Also make sure your three ki luns are appropriately placed. Also place a bowl of blue dawn detergent in this area as well. If your front door faces the east, place a water fountain outside your front door.
The #8 of money flies into the Abundance center of the SE. Extremely good for money. Place water to uplift!! Use citrine. Place items you wish to enhance monetarily in this area.
Have a wonderful month and work toward goals of what you want and release all ties of bondage.
