December 7th brings in the Rat Month. Are you ready? Did you know that a group of rats is also known as a “mischief”? This month is Geng (yang metal) Zi (yin water). With metal to strengthen it, this rat month should be a doozie.
If buyers and sellers are particularly cranky this month, consider the possibility that the Feng Shui is causing the trouble. Houses on the market facing North or Northwest will have more conflict than usual after December 6th.
In the North, the 6 monthly star joins the 7 yearly star. The two metal stars, “clashing swords”, can cause troubles. If this area of the home is busy or well-used there may be more fighting than usual. Having this combination at the door can make relationships a bit stressful. What can you do if that becomes a problem? Bring in some bamboo and a little water in a black container. Give all that metal an outlet with something to prune.
The Northwest is also an area that may see some conflict. The earth and wood are naturally conflicting…earth feels a bit “poked at” by the wood, and it fights back. “Bullfight Sha” energy will cause people to act like fighting bulls, butting heads and pounding each other’s skulls until neither has any sense. For this, the cure is fire and metal. Some red and a bit of round or domed metal should help ease some of the tension. Of course, the sound of a chiming clock also serves as a metal cure, just be sure to add a bit of red.
The Southwest is a great sector for business right now, so spend some time there while you’re watching the bad behavior of those in the North and Northwest. While we may not be able to completely change their behavior, we may be able to use the energy to sell that house! Who knows…could be a bidding war for the property. So, be aware…it could be the Feng Shui!
