One More Month

Rooster year doesn’t start for Feng Shui purposes until February 4th.  How’s that for weird?

That’s when the energy of your space will change, but in the meantime, we still have another month of the crazy Yang Fire Monkey Year to deal with.   That’s right…more monkey.   And, he’s still playing with fire.

Well, on January 5th the monthly energy changes from the Yang Metal Rat to the Yin Metal Ox.  I like the Ox myself.   He usually brings me money.  Let’s hope the Ox can calm down the flaming, troublemaker of a Monkey!

In January the monthly stars should not be causing so many problems as they did/will in December.  They will have to be watched a bit though.

If your door is in the North, make sure that door doesn’t smack you in the face!  The 7 and 5 combination can cause mouth problems.  When you consider the monkey year…things could get a bit exciting.

Don’t make decisions about money in the Northeast.  The monthly and yearly stars here combine for money problems.

If your kitchen is in the East, be especially careful of burns.

Southeast can bring health, wealth and sibling troubles.  Why not just leave it at health and wealth? There’s the catch.  In Feng Shui we are constantly saying, “It all depends.”  And, it does.  Landforms can change what looks like a bad area into a good one or what looks good into a not so good area.  So can the pathways inside your home!  The whole picture has to be taken into consideration.

Nothing is ever as simple as just numbers, and nothing is static.   It’s good to be alerted to possible problems though!

Sometimes you can dodge that pothole if you know it’s there before you turn the corner.

Mr. Fabulous Predicts | Ox Month

In order to share the glory of being a guest blogger, our latest  “Mr. Fabulous” has kindly agreed to give his opinion on the upcoming Ox Month.—–


Welcome, Mr. Fabulous!—-

Sure...I'll tell ya.


“I have to say that compared to the quick, gorgeous horse that I am…the Ox is a slow, plodding, cloven-hoofed boob.   But, sometimes we need those, so I really don’t mean to be unkind.  I like the Ox well enough…he’s not a friend of mine, but I’ve watched him from a distance and he’s OK.  He slows things down when the time is right, and he’s always good to have around if you need your cart pulled out of a ditch or your garden plowed.   Treat him well and he’ll just keep on plowing.  But, there’s also the testy side of Ox.  He can take a lot of abuse, but if you poke him with a stick one too many times, you’re going to get stomped.  I like that in a bovine.

The Ox is often seen paired up with another Ox, pulling a plow or a wagon.  I bet you didn’t know that once you pair an Ox with another Ox, he becomes either a leftie or a rightie…he may refuse to work if he’s yoked to the opposite side.  Very simple fellow, the Ox.  If one of the team meets an early demise, the survivor won’t work well as a single, and may never accept working alone.  His partner will have to be replaced by another Ox that has been trained for the same side as the missing fellow.   Loyal, steadfast, and simple.   That’s the Ox.

There’s a little bit of fire in this Ox month, add that to the yearly Horse energy and we can expect flare-ups.  So, evil that has been put in motion will likely continue.  It won’t be as flashy as it has been lately, the Ox will tone down things a bit. But, expect things to be brewing where the Ox is plowing.  More secrets will be uncovered.

And remember, those who abuse the energy of the Ox will pay dearly.  He’s a lot like the elephant.  Ox has a very long memory.  He’s patient with mistakes, but does not suffer fools gladly.  Those who use his energy to steadily plow a straight line will find that the end of the Ox month they’ll be one more step closer to their goals.”
