Ushering in Spring of 2013 Water Snake Year

Today is 4th February 2013. It is known as Li Chun (立春) or the Beginning of Spring. It is also the start of the feng shui year. On this day the Dragon hands over his duties over to the Snake for his turn on the one-year roster.

But on a serious note, 2013 is also a Widow Year, which basically means due to the difference between the solar and lunar calendars, there is supposedly no Li Chun or Beginning of Spring (I’ve written an article here http://www.pureclassicalfengshui.com/?p=1397). And having no Li Chun is believed to be inauspicious for couples who wanted to get married this year.

Furthermore, 2013 is the year when all the Stars return to their respective Home Palaces. In this year all the Stars will be able to exhibit their natural disposition and energies to maximum effect. This means the auspicious stars will be very beneficial while the inauspicious stars will be very harmful if aggravated. Sectors to pay particular attention to in your house and offices are the Southwest and the center of the property. Try not to spend too much time within this 2 areas and avoid any renovations or loud activities here if possible. Conversely, expect good fortune to come visiting you if you have a main entrance located in the Northeast, South or North sectors of the house or office.

Lastly, remember to welcome the God of Wealth into your house (http://www.pureclassicalfengshui.com/?p=1434) on 10th February by opening your West facing Main Door and windows between the hours of 11pm of the 9th and 1am to ensure prosperity and good luck for the rest of the year.

Oh, by the way, for those of you who had your properties feng shui audited, kindly do your adjustments as per your feng shui reports. For those who had us audit your premises last year, kindly remember to remove all cures and enhancers if you had not already done so. If you do not know what to do, kindly contact or watsapp Esther at 9621-0363. Thanks!

Anyway, here’s wishing you guys a very Happy and Fortunate Water Snake year ahead!! :D

    Hello Stanley,

    With regards to receiving good fortune, our home’s main door entrance is located half in the south and half in the southeast. Will we experience full or partial benefits of fortune since the door is not fully located in the south?

    Thank you.

      Hi Melissa,

      It is rare that an entrance be situated smack in the center between sectors. Most of the time your main entrance will either be located more towards one sector or the other. If it is located more towards the sector that happens to be the south, then your door is located in the south sector. Let me know which, ok? :)

    Hi Stanley,
    Happy New Year!
    Apology for the ignorance or u might have explained this in your earlier posting. May i know how do we determine the direction of our maindoor and windows? Do we need a feng shuI compass or normal one will do?

    Thanks!

      Hi Ming,

      Happy Chinese New Year to you too! You just need to stand in the centre of your house and use either a normal compass or the digital one in your handphone to determine where your main door and windows are located. If you really want to be accurate, you can dig out your floor plan to find the centre. :)

    Hi Stanley,

    Below are two links which contain photos of my front door. One photo shows the entire first floor and the second is a close-up of the front door entrance. Could you please tell me where my front door entrance is more situated, whether its south or southeast? I would appreciate every bit of information you can provide. Thank you.

      Hi Melissa,

      Looking at your floor plan, I’d say you have a south facing door located in the southeastern sector of the house. By the way, I noticed you demarcated your house using the bagua feng shui method and because you happened to come to my site, I will advise caution to you when applying any of this method’s cures or enhancers as it may ultimately cause more harm than help.

    Thanks Stanley! I like the simplicity of how you apply fengshui to our daily lives.if u don’t mind,I have a few more questions.
    1. When u mentioned not to spend too much time in the southwest and centre sectors, what is considered too much time? More than 3 hours?
    2. What should we do if our bedroom (where we sleep>5hours everyday) and/or living room (where we watch TV which can be noisy) is located in one of these sectors?

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge!

    Cheers

      Hi Ming,

      The answer to question one is – do what you have to do in that area, do not linger and leave as soon as possible. The idea is not give the negative energies present (if accidentally triggered) a chance to affect you.

      The answer to question two is – if it happens to be your bedroom, you can either change rooms for the year, keep the area quiet and don’t linger longer than necessary. For your living room, turn down the volume of the TV. Or you can give your headaches to me by engaging my feng shui services. :)

    Hi Stanley,

    My front door faces south in the southeastern sector. Is this an auspicious location?
    In your previous response, you mentioned about the bagua feng shui method as not being a good method to bring good luck in the home. Could you please expand on why that is so?

    Thank you.

      Hi Melissa,

      The answer to your first question is: I really wouldn’t know whether that is an auspicious location until I know specifically what degrees your front door is facing as well as other important information that I am missing.

      To put it simply, the westernized version of bagua feng shui is a over-simplified form of feng shui with its one-size-fits-all applications and mentality, which at that time makes it very easy for the westerners to understand and accept when it was first introduced back in the 80s and if you would like to discuss this further we can continue by email. :)
