Paper shredder not lucky in wealth corner!

Paper shredder not lucky in wealth corner!

In this Water Dragon year 2012, a financial feng shui tip is the importance of no clutter in your home or workplace. If how to handle money is not clear to you, then you definitely must have no clutter hidden, stashed, or hoarded. Money is symbolized by water in feng shui. Money can flow like water in this Water Dragon year — if your home is clean and clutter free.

In one system of feng shui, the wealth corner is the far left-hand corner from the entry of a room. So picture what is in the far left-hand corner from the entry of each room in your home. Be sure that this wealth corner is not just a pile clutter in any room. And remove anything that obviously is unlucky, like a paper shredder or a kitty litter box.

I did a feng shui consultation for a lovely and loving couple who were stuck with money. In their home office, the second bedroom, a paper shredder was wedged into the wealth corner. In front of that was a kitty litter box!

I recommended that they move their paper shredder under a desk so it is out of sight when not in use. But they found an even better spot on the bottom shelf of a bookcase with doors on the bottom shelves. Over the next few days, they figured out a way to put the kitty box on the outside patio through a large window. Fortunately, their cat was fine with the litter box in a new location.

As soon as their wealth corner changed, they had luck with a great real estate deal. They’d been hemming and hawing for years since the real estate bubble burst in Earth Rat year 2008, occasionally attending an open house or following through with a real estate listing.

This weekend I did feng shui for the magical and gorgeous new home they bought together. It has very good fortune, and is nestled near the top of one of the beautiful hills of San Francisco. The view from a picture window looks out onto much greenery. They can’t believe that they no longer rent and finally bought their first home.

Adding to their good fortune is that one of the couple was born in Phoenix (Rooster) year, Dragon month, Horse day, and Pig hour. All of these animals have good fortune in Dragon year. The other was born in Dog year, which does not generally have favor in a Dragon year. But this Dog was born in Horse month during the hours of the Monkey. This is fortunate, especially Monkey.

In this Water Dragon year, anything can happen and anyone can pop in for a visit at any time. So keep your home tidy, especially your wealth corners. Tidy up BEFORE you leave so you come home to peace. Increase your luck by not living in a mess during this year of the regal Dragon. The choice is yours.


  1. Thank you for this. I had my shredder in the wrong corner and after i read this I moved it. I started to see an improvement in my finances right away – small improvement at first and gradually getting better.

  2. I just realized that my shredder is located in the left back corner of our spare bedroom. Guess what I will be moving tonight? Thanks for the info.

  3. I just moved my paper shredder out of my wealth area today…two checks arrived! One a total unexpected surprise!

    • Of course! Thanks for the update. Good luck Patricia.

  4. I have a fire place in the left, wealth corner. Does that mean I am burning up all my wealth? Perhaps I should not use it.

    • Use and enjoy your fireplace this winter! Add a big mirror over the fireplace. It can easily rest on the fireplace mantle. The mirror will balance the fire. And add lovely lush houseplants like Chinese evergreen or jade at the base of the fireplace. Add some beautiful flowers. Poinsettias are good this time of year. Good luck!
