How feng shui could turn stress into… Success!
As everything in our world is made of energy, or uses it, Feng Shui can tell us exactly how our environment affects our quality of life. It’s five element principles are applied to all materials, shapes, colour, relative position within a space, as well as the client who is the principal consideration.
Going with the flow!
When energy is allowed to flow from one transformational stage to another, we live life in harmony and contentment. When these phases are interrupted, stress ensues.
Science will tell you that we absorb energy from our environment and this indeed determines our quality of life. So do you want success or stress with that? Luckily, our website provides tons of free information to help you balance your space.
Alternatively, our professional feng shui consultation services can quickly and efficiently analyse your home or business and make simple recommendations to help you, your family or staff change stress into success. Of course we will also include natural cycles of energy, which leads us to…
Warning; Ox signs possible headache ahead?
Tracking nature’s flow of energy through the feng shui calendar informs us of today's alignment between the Snake day sign and this month’s Rooster sign. You only need to have an Ox as one of your four animal signs, or be under its influence in a time cycle, to feel the full force of a metal trine. You can find out if you, or someone you know, has one with our free Chinese horoscope.
Now, depending on the equilibrium of your Chinese horoscope, today can be truly memorable and provide outstanding opportunities to improve wealth, relationships, power, authority or creativity and vibrancy. Conversely, if metal is unfavourable, your chart could be adversely affected and as this influence represents the head, this is where you may feel the stress and pressure build up.
As there are almost 13 million different types of Chinese astrology charts, it is impossible to give general advice. However our free attribute cycle will give you a good idea of what you can expect. We also include advice with our consultation services.
A way of balancing this headache today is with water; drink it, be near it or go for a swim if your day starts to get bent out of shape.
Go… with the flow!
Taking a positive attitude to this metal alignment, the Feng Shui almanac is “smiling” and once again, most activities are favourable. These include meditating or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, taking a course, getting married, having an astrology reading, buying or making clothes, seeing a doctor or choosing a treatment, emigrating, opening a business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof, moving home or even hunting (bargain, we trust?).
And so to success!
In addition to our auspicious triple alignment, it is literally a “Success” day in the Jian Qu system tracked daily in the book of nature. A great day for planning events or changing lifestyles and is the main reason for our extended daily blog.
I am also reminded that its perfect to learn something new and this seems like an appropriate time to remind you that we are finalising our next professional feng shui consultants course starting next week on September 21st. If you would like to continually “change stress into success”, help all you come across and would like to enjoy an extremely satisfying profession, then enrol today!We will see you soon.

Sharper than a serpent's tooth?
Although our title is a line from Shakespeare’s King Lear, it does sum up today's main points perfectly. Namely, it’s a Metal Snake day and although teeth are associated with the metal element, it’s also a “Broken” day in the Jian Chu (12 palace system). It’s not just Broken, its smashed, as this Snake day also clashes with the Pig, our monthly zodiac sign. Is this a case of “two wrongs don't make a right”? Not necessarily, if you have pain similar to that mentioned in our title, it’s a perfect day to find the proper treatment for your ills, not just dentistry.
Fixing what is broken is most definitely the order of the day and the Chinese almanac further suggests refurbishment, especially filling cracks and smoothing paths in and around our homes.
If Metal Snake is in the day pillar of your Chinese horoscope, your body can “write cheques that your mind doesn’t want to cash”. Although, this creates confusion, it is easily balanced with the earth element. On the other hand, you tend to thrive under pressure and your emotions spur you onwards. You can also find good support from intimate friends. An analytical mind and an eye for detail help to build your reputation. Famous celebrities include George W. Bush, Angelina Jolie (day), Bono, Mel B, Naomi Campbell, Chow Yun Fat, Steven Gerrard, Enrique Iglesias, Olga Korbut, Bill Paxton, John C Reilly, Gabriela Sabatini, Brooke Shields and Stevie Wonder.
As we have some major projects to finish, as well as teaching some advanced Feng Shui classes, we will return on November 27th - a Water Dragon day.
If Snakes could grow legs they would take the sTRAIN
As London gears up to host the Olympics in just over a week, road traffic begins to snarl and the temper and patience of “locals” is greatly strained. This is due to traffic light signalling giving priority to Olympic athletes and dignitaries.
However, today's New Moon starts a new cycle and beginning on a Metal Snake day may suggest a solution in the form of a train. After all it’s built of metal carriages and snakes its way along. We could all remain calm and avoid chaos and pollution if we used them instead of the roads.
“If Snakes could grow legs” is a saying meaning the impossible, and it would certainly be impractical for businesses to adopt this method. Although the canal system once provided this function and worked very well.
A Metal Snake can also indicate stress as one element controls another, creating a very dynamic and emotional person. They are usually precise and pay attention to fine detail and mastering their emotions makes this the most powerful of the five different snake types in Chinese astrology.
They also have alluring or magnetic eyes and Angelina Jolie is a fine example with two of them, that’s both eyes and metal snakes.
If you have this pillar in your horoscope and you can find out here free Chinese horoscope then you will want to know what fine details and recommendations lay ahead. The Chinese almanac suggests meditation or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, having a haircut, seeing a doctor or choosing a treatment, opening a business and trading or setting directions for your door.
Take a Snake break and seek cure
Today’s Metal Snake clashes with the monthly sign of Pig, so unless you’re fixing something, it’s best to make important decisions tomorrow. The Chinese almanac suggests only remedial activities which range from seeking medical advice, (hence today's title) to refurbishment, particularly smoothing paths and fixing walls.
To discover how your own sign is affected today see our Metal Snake web page. We will return tomorrow a Water Horse day to offer belated advice for any postponed decisions. Metal Snake daily Chinese horoscope posted 23rd September 2011
Snake coalition aids governments in final phase; be positive the eyes have it!
It is not surprising that recent media is full of doom and gloom as this month was, according to Chinese astrology, always going to be the worst of 2011, due to a major clash with the annual zodiac sign. It has the effect of one influence trying to expand whilst the other contracts and especially affects government and order and maybe best interpreted as nations trying to control expanding debt and inflation.
However, this Metal Snake day brings assistance as the Snake is part of the same group as the monthly Rooster sign and this union perhaps indicates much needed support in strengthening strategic alliances.
This assistance should bring relief and, falling as it does today on the autumnal equinox heralding the final phase or 4th quarter of the year, should be taken as a positive sign of better times ahead. At the very least, we emerge from this clash on the 8th October and things will certainly improve naturally by or from then onwards. Our thoughts are energy, so perhaps we should help this healing process by thinking the best of whatever situation we find ourselves in.
So be positive in all you do and it should feel as if we are already there. The book of nature or Chinese almanac seems to follow this trend and recommends starting long term relationships with activities such as getting married, exchanging gifts, taking a course, having an astrology reading, emigrating, laying foundations, fixing a roof and buying or setting a direction for your bed. Being one of the eight high-energy days of the year, it is also good for spiritual practice, particularly meditation.
Finally, in Chinese face reading you can usually tell a Metal Snake person by their almost mesmerising eyes and rounded features, particularly cheek bones. Perhaps you have this feature or know someone who has, and you can find out with a free Chinese horoscope.
We will return on Monday a Metal Monkey day which is especially good for reform or giving up bad habits. Posted 23rd September 2011
