This combination makes it easier to solve problems and move through abstract and practical issues. Others may entrust you to carry out difficult tasks. Just be careful not to take on more than you can effectively handle.

Feng Shui Astrology Lady Says...Movement & Action!

Simply stick with your intuition and all will be well. The combination between the wood and snake does bring forth positive outcome for career/finances and deals that you may have awaiting to close.

Ms. Feng Shui Tips Tea Totaler - Ebb & Flow!

Just sat down for a cup of tea but not for long as I am off to teach my yoga class with "Pie in the Sky" Yogini. Ah - ebb and flow, not only in my yoga practice but in my feng shui practice. Seasons change and with it, the elements find their natural home. Strong wood has already peaked with the spring equinox and beginst o wane and allow fire to take charge.

One of the great aspects about the 5 elements are how they ebb and flow with one another. Several years ago, I decided to really delve in to how these elements interact in nature. As a result, I spent 3 weeks hiking across the Pacific Northwest infusing meditations during my hikes - literally sitting in mountains to absorb the energy of earth. This experience deepened not only my feng shui consulting and teaching, but also my yoga practice. Instead of me trying to explain the depth of what the powerful forces/ elements of nature represent and what they want us to know, I suggest you pick up a copy of my book: Mother Nature A Bridge to Conscious Living and see for yourself. This book was a result of the time I spent in nature and meditating with Her. The book is designed in journal format so you can discover your own experience.

Feng Shui Astrology Lady Says...Original Ideas!

The Yang Wood Dragon is a terrific combination when it comes to original ideas. Practical, imaginative and inquisitive is the triple threat of the wood dragon. Thinking and doing is the premise for today's combination of energy along with having sufficient drive to put new ideas into action.

You can also expect from this combination the potential for new clients, albeit there is a potential they will challenge you. Proper preparation will take care of any nuisances that may arise. There are long term benefits of expanding your services with a new slant so take the plunge!

Ms. Feng Shui Tea Totaler...Spring is here!

Take action now to energize your home this Spring!

Do you ever feel like a gray cloud is constantly hovering over you? Do you feel like no matter what you do, it seems to be a struggle? One of the most common reasons for stagnancy in life is clutter. When energy is stuck in a physical sense it has far reaching effects on every aspect of our being. It has a tendency to throw us off track in life, question our direction, and to trigger emotional, physical and spiritual malaise. On some level, your mind is aware of what is going on. On another level it is the subconscious mind's way of avoiding what needs to be done.

For our life to work well it is necessary to clear the clutter and make room for new energy to propagate. Part of this process is to disengage from the emotional attachment we have with the objects we possess. The trick is to make an assessment about the objects in your space and the emotional strain it is having on the flow of your life. When we understand that every part of the human life experience is encapsulated within our home through design, images, symbols, sounds, and smells, we can then assess whether these objects add value to our life or keep us physically and emotionally stuck.

Take action this Spring and energize your space. Begin a life filled with abundance by following these simple guidelines. You will feel empowered by your ability to control your space, feel lighter, realize new opportunities, and move through life more effortlessly.

De-cluttering Guidelines

  1. Take a tour of your home and record the clutter zones of each room.
  2. Note how you feel when you look at your possessions. Do you have a positive reaction or a negative one?
  3. Create a system for discarding unwanted, broken, return, or donation items.
  4. Set an intention as you remove unwanted items. You are now energetically opening up to attracting new desires into your life.
  5. Take breaks during the clutter-clearing session to recharge your energy.
  6. Strive for a cleared, simple, natural and uncluttered feel.
  7. Make sure each room has at least two strong light sources.
  8. Add pizzazz to each room with accents (i.e. fresh coat of paint, flowers, seashells or plant).
  9. Re-think your furniture positioning and create open and inviting seating arrangements.
  10. Locate the East direction in your home; place a healthy plant and other wood elements (green colors, floral designs, columnar shapes or wood accent pieces). This direction aligns to our health and family roots. Activation here has a way of catapulting new beginnings for us.
  11. Space clear each room for a fresh revitalized feel by spraying pure essential oils.
  12. Let go, have fun and live simply.

Once you begin the process of aligning your space, you will naturally increase the energy level in the structure and in turn, your personal energy will heighten. You will naturally be drawn to healthier eating habits, physical habits, and spiritual habits. You have a choice to change your life through the design of your space. What are you waiting for?

Feng Shui Astrology Lady Says... Proper Expression!

The Yin Water Rabbit is such a calming combination. The elements move perfectly between one another eluding to flow in your expression today. What does that mean? What your natural skills and abilities are and how you offer them to the public should be your focus. Be precise in your actions today and rely on your intuition. Combining these two components results in success!

Tap in to the wide variety of interests you might have because somewhere in that variety is an idea that will take off.

This afternoon there is a tendency to push when the timing isn't exactly right. It is better to concentrate on your natural skills and abilities as the right opportunity will likely show up.

Feng Shui Astrology Lady Says...Great Career Direction!

Happy Friday morning! This is a great combination of energy that opens the door for career growth and long term goals. Finances are looking up and especially when it comes to outlining your career plan. It's a good time to review your financial portfolio and make some changes for long term investments.

Proper power opens up later in the day and requires you to use your skills to help others. It is important your focus moves beyond yourself as this will open new doors for you. Be careful about overdoing it this evening with food and spirits as the earth pig likes to overindulge.

Feng Shui Astrology Lady Says...Methodical & Efficient

Happy St. Patrick's Day! The Earth Dog is all about being efficient and  methodical in your actions today. A generous and kind demeanor are also qualities of this combination. Since there is double earth with this combination, it is a perfect day to make a decision that you may have been putting off. The likelihood, however, is you will experience a level of anxiety as strong earth can also trigger such emotion. No need to get wrapped up in worrying as there are plenty of resources and support from others. The key is to tap into their support.

Feng Shui Lady Says...Strong Willed!

Happy Wednesday morning. The yin fire rooster steps into the picture today. Be prepared to encounter strong willed people who will secure their objectives through sheer force of character. They will have a tendency to be blunt and not consider the feelings of others. If it is you who is taking that approach with others, then know you will be more successful if you are tactful.

Dynamic wealth is strong today, since metal is a strong element in the daily chart, then saving money is very likely. You may even find there are new clients that come your way or a new job offering.

Feng Shui Astrology Lady Says...No Need to Brag

Happy Friday Morning! Today a combination of water to earth comes into play between the water heavenly stem and Dragon earthly branch. These two elements are in conflict and therefore you may be tempted to control issues that arise. We all know that never bodes well especially when you feel you have to brag about what you have or what you can do. Instead, take two steps back and reconfigure your approach by being organized with your mental processes. When doing this you most definitely will gain the support of others when it comes to your services/skills and clients will find you.

The Water Dragon can bring the element of objectivity and this is great when it comes to seeing eye-to-eye with others. Be patient today and wait for results.

Happy Weekend!

Ms. Feng Shui Tips Tea Totaler...

The element of earth is essential if you want to feel free. How? When we feel stable, an earth quality, we feel a sense of freedom. Isn't that what we all desire - freedom? So how can you infuse this propitious element into your life? Here are a few simple ways to do so:

  • Spend time outdoors and absorb mother nature. The very essence of the earth stores within it wisdom and humility - two qualities that all beings should look to attain.
  • Practice yoga or qi gong - two ancient practices that tap into the yin energy of the earth and allows one to cultivate love, respect, courage and truth.
  • Plant an herb garden and enjoy working with the soil of the land.
  • Start a rock collection and display it in the northeast or southwest portent of your home or office.Enjoy the look, feel and vibration of the stones.
  • Think about earth colors (tans to brown - terra cotta) and designs (plaids or checked patterns) as accents, especially in northeast and southwest areas of your home or office space.
  • Accent with low rectangular or square furnishings.
Enjoy a little bit of earth in your life and find freedom from the stability it offers!
