Feng Shui aspects for September—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.
See July post about Uranus being in retrograde until December 1st bringing unexpected news and developments.
In September the #7 of instability flies to the center of the Ba-gau. Since this is the center of the home we will see a lot of instability and jockeying for position this month. Unfortunately, the #7 of metal combining with the #9 of fire can cause violence and explosion, possibly a terrorism attack or big plane crash may be on the horizon. Fires could be prevalent this month as well. Be vigilant. This is big energy, so be careful with the any explosives or fire this month.
The heart and lung area could feel weakened this month so take care of your health this month. The swine flu or anything of heart and lung could outbreak or begin to outbreak. The stomach or digestion may also be affected because of the ‘fire in the belly.’ Take care of yourself. Eat right, sleep properly, and stay active to move the chi in and out of the body properly. Blocked chi is bad chi!!! Use water to calm this energy. Water, water, water in the center of your home. The fire energy can also affect the thinking and the brain energy. Stroke may also be a factor this month. Use water, water, and water in the center of your home. Oh, did I say it yet, Use WATER, WATER, WATER, to rust the metal and put out the fire. Remove extra lighting and wind chimes from the center of your home for this month. You can replace it next month, but this month, be diligent.
You may find yourself also feeling full of fighting energy. Curb this tendency with water sports, swimming, baths, and extra water in your diet. Did I say yet, WATER, WATER, and WATER?? You may also place large amounts of the color blue in this area.
For conflict issues or lawsuits, write on a blue piece of paper, “ I pray for a quick resolution to all conflicts this month. I pray that all legal situations be solved to my highest good.” Place this blue paper in the center of your home under, yep, a bowl of WATER!!!
The monthly #8 of money flies to the Northwest of the dog and pig bringing money luck, fortune and cause for celebration. The annual #1 already in the Northwest with the #8 forms an imbalance between earth, metal, and water. Use water with gold coins and citrine stone in this area to activate and balance. If your front door is located in this space, put the water outside your front door to the left of your door as you are looking outside. The pig and dog may see promotions and increase in income this month. Everyone can benefit as well. Place the monkey on the back of the metal horse in this area.
The #9 of fire moves to the West of metal causing another volatile combination. Use water to calm here as well. The same applies to this area that applies to the center of the home. Go back and apply all adjustments for the center of the home to the area of the West, as well. The #2 star of illness in this area will be stronger so use water and common sense when it comes to your health this month. The Rooster needs to be especially diligent of his health.
Disclaimer: Don’t get caught up in the dire aspects. Use the appropriate elements to balance. That is what feng shui is about. Balancing out those areas, which fly out of balance through out the year. If you ignore it or poo poo it you may be affected. Just place the adjustments, go about your business, and enjoy your life. Give it attention/no.
The #1 of water and career flies to the NE of the Tiger and Ox bringing with it a relief to some of the conflict these animals have been feeling. The added water energy will cause the #3 to struggle and get soggy. This brings career luck to this area. Members of a NE facing house may be in line for advancement or job change for advancement. 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; use water objects, turtles, fish, water features, aquariums, etc to bring career luck inside.
The #2 of Illness flies to the South of the horse. Those in a South facing home and the horse need to be especially care of health. Use water to downplay fire energy of the south. The water will also cause the breakdown of the #2 earth illness star. Avoid sleeping in this area if possible. If you must sleep here, place a Wu Lou or Calabash by your bed. Watch your health, get your rest and eat right.
You may also place peacock feathers 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.
I got extremely ill last weekend, not sure yet just why, but I think it had something to do with the Virgo aspect moving into the month and my South Facing home. Pay attention. A lot of times we pay attention, too late, like I did. I was feeling spunky and invincible and got nailed. When I start looking at the aspects of movement, this aspect was moving in with other aspects moving out. I got careless.
The #3 of conflict flies to the North where the Rat resides. The annual star of the #5 resides in this area. The #3 and #5 can wreak havoc on your nerves this month. Again, SALTWATER, SALT WATER, SALT WATER. The North facing home may see a stressful month in family and business relations. Keep your head low and watch your tongue. Since the #5 annual resides in this area, reset your salt water cure. Use raw crystals to stabilize the unsteady earth energy and to uplift the spirits. Place a crystal at your front door if your home faces north. If your bedroom is in this area place the crystals under your bed. Take all red out of this area this month.
The #4 of wood and literary recognition flies to the SW of the home. The monkey and the sheep or friends of the monkey and sheep may see new romance and literary recognition that brings cash windfall. This area will be especially auspicious for the woman. Place 4 bamboos in this area with still water. Place your literary works, fine art or photography or video works in this area for higher recognition.
The #5 flies into East of the Rabbit and the eldest son, where the annual #7 of danger already resides. This month, the elder man could see opposition and needs to take care with his health. He could be in danger of conflict and injury. PLACE A FRESH-- SALT WATER CURE!!!! If your front door faces the East, place a salt line at the front door. Place your chi luns and a bowl of blue detergent in this area to stabilize. Place water and plants in abundance in the East, inside and outside the home. If this is your bedroom, place a wu lou in this area. Since metal is so strong in this area with the annual #7, be careful of all sharp metal objects this month aka-knives, scissors, car accidents, etc. Place a crystal or peacock feathers in your car. Again--Make sure your three-ki luns are in place with a bowl of blue detergent to work the energy of the unstable #7. Be diligent don’t ignore this area and its influence this year.
Again, don’t panic. The influences will pass and all that is—will be. Remember, each experience is a learning lesson and discover what it is you are to learn. If it is suppose to happen it will. Until then, don’t sweat the small stuff. Focus on what it is you are to do and let God take care of the rest of the world. It is his job and not yours. Worry is like cigarette smoke. It stinks; it serves no purpose, and dissipates into the air when attention is directed away from it. So don’t bother with it. It is a waste of time. Live as if this is the best day of your life. What you focus upon, you will receive. Focus upon balance and harmony.
The monthly #6 of power and authority flies into the South East of the Snake and the Dragon bringing power and authority to all projects. This is an excellent time for fortune and money gain. Place 6 Chinese Coins or gold ingots and jewels in this area. Everyone can activate this area for success.
This month we could see a month of good days and bad days. Be especially careful of the Center of the home, the North, the South, the East, and the West. Use water in abundance to calm these areas. The good areas of the home this month are the Southeast, Northwest, Northeast, and Southwest. Use the appropriate adjustments to enhance.
Have a good month!!! It could be an interesting ride with lots of good things happening offsetting the bad.
