Smell a Rat?

Wood Rabbit symbol

Although today's title usually refers to something wrong, it’s actually one of the better days of this week. I chose it because it’s a Metal Rat day and according to five element principles metal is associated with smell, and oh yeah… it’s a Rat day. After that explanation, you can just feel a much needed summer break looming can’t you?

Those born on a metal day should have a good sense of smell and quite possibly, a great fondness for cheese. Seriously though, if Metal Rat is in your horoscope, you are the creative and honourable rat, emotional, wise, competent and full of self-expression. Rats are generally collectors, so love hoarding and find it very difficult to throw anything away.

Famous Metal Rats include Kenneth Branagh, Dido, Daryl Hannah, Amy Lee, Ricky Martin, Sienna Miller, Britney Spears and Kiefer Sutherland. There’s much more on our dedicated Metal Rat horoscope page.

The overwhelming quality of Metal Rat though is intelligence and it’s no surprise that the Feng Shui almanac recommends taking a course as one of today's most successful things to do.  It also suggests pampering and having a haircut, travelling, buying or making clothes, buying or setting direction for your bed, acquiring livestock or setting up a tombstone.

Although we shall be working hard in the office on various projects, we are going to take our usual sabbatical from writing this blog and will return in September. We are of course still open for consultations throughout August and have a new professional Feng Shui Consultant class starting next month. There are a few places still left, so tell a friend. To prove we are still here though, we may surprise you with a blog on memorable days.

Have a great summer and until next we meet, enjoy every moment of NOW!

Creative Rat is over the moon

Huge Rabbit

Before unfolding today's title I should just apologise for the abrupt halt to last week’s series which finished two days short; last Wednesday. When I started writing this blog I explained that it was always going to be subject to finding a little time is an already hectic schedule to actually write it and last week was crazy!

Whenever, there is a downturn in the economy or uncertain times ahead, people are willing to try something different and feng shui seems to be at the top of their list. Although, a feng shui consultation cannot always guarantee results; it usually allows people to make the most of their surroundings, greatly reduces stress and provide insights and reassurance to empower them for their future.

From the absence of superstition and inclusion of physics, they are always amazed at the common sense of it all. Feng shui business works because in nature, high energy always flows to lower forms and there is usually an area of each home or office where this higher energy can be accessed and encouraged to flow throughout a building. When this air flow is absorbed by staff or occupants it empowers them to make the right decisions and greatly increases efficiency, even to the point of being saved from bankruptcy.

Once tried, clients tend to tell all their friends and family about their amazing results and this keeps our practice busy! We also taught at our Feng Shui School this weekend and held our annual certificate ceremony for our newly qualified consultants. This means we now have more people to help others enjoy the benefits of Feng Shui and make a positive future. We send our congratulations once again to them. On the subject of which lets explore today's title.

Until then, enjoy NOW! - Metal Rat daily Chinese horoscope posted 12/10/ 2011 + 7/8/12 + 5/12/12

Metal Rat is perhaps the most creative of the five different types of Rat in Chinese astrology. Rat signs tend to be avid collectors and these metal types are intelligent and make excellent investors. They can also become great travellers and with that in mind, we can travel to December of this year when the whole month has the same Metal Rat energy as today. This affords a glimpse into the trends and tendencies in this festive period, although as last night was a full moon, it may be slightly less active.

If we look at just the relationship between the Metal and Rat in todays and Decembers pillar, it indicates great generosity; certainly something to look forward to. The Chinese almanac follows this trend and recommends investment type activities which range from taking a course, buying land or opening a  business and trading, to personal investment in wellbeing by meditation or quite reflection;  in appearance by having a haircut or removing mourning clothes, even preventative health treatment from acupuncture. It advises against fixing nets or making a wedding dress.

We will return tomorrow on a Metal Ox day.
