It’s holiday season and time to celebrate! “Deck the halls with boughs of holly,” goes the seasonal carol, and from a feng shui perspective that’s a great idea.
Adding festive decorations to your home and work can bring luck and improve your feng shui. Bright holiday decorations help elevate your mood, and the festive color red helps temper any holiday blues or seasonal affective disorder in wintertime. Add the color red during the holidays. Red adds fire to our lives. Red spurs us into action, strengthens motivation, and inspires passion for life.
A Christmas tree brings life into your home. The tree’s shape is like a flame with energy moving upwards to the star on top. The tree is decorated with bright lights, and beautiful ornaments add even more vitality. A Christmas tree is lucky in all areas of your home, especially the fame area located in the center of the far wall when entering a room. Your Christmas tree is also very lucky in the wealth corner, the far left-hand corner from the entry. If you have a wall with a red back splash, your tree would look striking in front of the red, and be powerful in any location. If you celebrate Hanuka, the lighting of candles brings fire and is very fortunate. Decorating with the Hanukka colors blue, white, and silver are peaceful and healing. Kwanzaa candles are also fortunate, especially in the fame area. Just avoid placing candles in the wealth corner where you are symbolically burning money!
When decorating your home and workplace, put your heart into your decorating. Create beauty with living things. Instead of tinsel and plastic, this year try decorating with live plants. Like the Christmas tree, live plants bring fresh energy to your environment. The pointsettia is lovely red holiday plant, but only get a couple of them. This year try fresh flowers such as orchids, gardenias, roses, or your favorite flower. If you’re grouping together too much red, which can happen with many pointsettias, separate the red by add green, silver, gold, or a combination of these colors. The color red is especially fortunate in this Horse year.
Feng shui engages all our senses, and than includes sound. So play happy music! Instead of the background noise of your TV, set the holiday mood with joyous and healing music.
Christmas is on a DOUBLE HORSE day: Metal Horse day in this Wood Horse year when freedom is key. Astrologically speaking, Christmas day will be powerful. On December 25 2014, transformation planet Pluto conjuncts the Sun, Mercury, and Venus. You can accomplish your goals by releasing the past and eliminating old patterns. Ideas and opinions can change when you converse with others, so be open to new ideas. And relationships dynamics becomes intensified as emotions are deeply felt, especially as the Moon enters sensitive Water sign Pisces.
New Years Eve will be wonderful this year! The Moon will be in sensual Earth sign Taurus, the best sign for the Moon. This beauty-loving Taurean Moon trines Mercury and Pluto for breakthrough conversations and encounters. Plus Moon squares Jupiter, but it is a good square due to the influence of beneficial Jupiter, for strong feelings, enjoying the company of others, and to be in touch with your emotions.
