One can only hope for a better year as each New Year comes. Let us present to you 10 recommended Feng Shui tips to usher in the year of the Wood Rooster. Enhance your luck this year by following these suggestions:
Look for a Rooster or Dragon Friend
The Year of the Wood Rooster will be "THE year" for those people born under the year of the Rooster. Luck is on their side throughout the year and the same goes to the Rooster’s secret Astrological Friend the Dragon. The Rooster is the earthly embodiment of the Phoenix, the Dragon’s celestial partner. So Rooster and Dragons should carry/wear each other’s image in the form of lucky charms or jewelry to jumpstart wonderful relationship luck for the year. Getting your self close to these people will do well for you, rubbing off some of their luck to you. If you’re Rabbit of a Dog, the year may not be that nice to you, being the natural enemies of the Dragon and the Rooster. Those born under the Rabbit or Dog animal signs should strengthen friendship luck by wearing their own astrological allies on them as lucky charms.
Glow Like the Moon Goddess
There’s nothing more attractive in women than having the wondrous glow of the moon can be achieved by applying pearl powder blended with moisturizer on a lady’s face. Enchant your man by applying the powder on your face evenly and smoothly. Use a wedge sponge to get the radiant effect of the moon. The Chinese Pearl Powder has been consistently supported by women. Chinese women have been using pure Pearl powder for generations. It was even suggested to make it a part of a pregnant woman’s diet to ensure that the child is born with born with perfect complexion.
Get a Narcissus Plant to Boost your Career
Chinese has long regarded the narcissus (daffodils) with the season of spring and the idea that new and good things are headed your ways. The wood energy of this plant is also in sync with the good energy of this year. Fill your homes with Narcissus to bring your self new opportunities and rise up particularly on the career front. To multiply your luck with this plant give broad hints to your friends that you would love to have it as a New Year’s gift (it is ten times more auspicious if it is given.) It is quiet easy to get different colors of the Narcisus plant because of its different hybrids, so get the color you like or better yet get a color that goes with your sheng chi direction. Red goes with the north sheng chi direction, blue for south, east or southeast should go with white, while those with southwest or northeast should go with yellow. The lucky west and northwest sheng chi direction can go with any colors.

Be sexy and create a Pearl on Your Lips.
Chinese believed that the pearl in the center of your lips is what makes your word sweet, attractive and powerful.

Take in a Charity
