Luck of the draw
2nd -3rd June 2007
single lady and ready for commitment. Sometimes I think that I’ve been
cursed for the last six years in the Love Dept. I could never find
success in my love affairs. Currently, I’m in a relationship, but my
boyfriend seems reluctant to get married. I’ve energized my Southwest
corner with mandarin ducks and all the possible love symbols that I can
think of. I even wear a 9-eyed-dzi bead. I don’t know how to cope with
these difficulties anymore! How can I activate my love luck to finally
get married with the help of feng shui?
HAVE you tried using the peach blossom luck method? This is very
effective and depends on your animal sign. We have described this
method of activating marriage luck in the WOFS Feng Shui Almanac
Calender 2007, so you can try this. The peach blossom animals are Horse
in the South; Rooster in the West; Rabbit in the East and Rat in the
When you get your peach blossom animals, get those that are beautifully
made and which look rich and clean attractive. Never buy these images
from roadsides or ugly, dirty shops. The better and more attractive the
peach blossom image you use, the better, and the more high-class
looking the shop is, the more high class will be the spouse you attract.
I have also discovered that placing the picture of a bride and groom or
having a musical box with a bride and groom near you on you table is
also an excellent energizer. It worked for several of my daughter’s
friends – it should work for you too. I need to say, however, that
while feng shui can help you generate marriage vibes, it cannot
guarantee the quality of the spouse. That depends on your karma.
bought a landed property four years ago and my husband has been facing
a lot problems in his business since we moved to this house three years
back. My kitchen is in the Northwest sector, which is the Ox sector. My
husband was born in 1961 (Ox). After reading this year’s Ox reading by
your good self, I realize that our kitchen is suppressing him. We can’t
move the kitchen and do not want to sell this house. Please advise us.
EVEN before you hear what I have to say, you are setting limits to
solutions. I am not a magician. If you do not wish to implement the
cures suggested, then how am I to help you? You already know that this
is a tough year for the Ox, so when personal luck is low (as is the
case for your husband) what you don’t need is to have kitchen
suppressing your luck even more. Also take note that this year, the NE
is home to the dreaded five yellows. So how?
Place lots of metal energy in your kitchen. The best is five-element
pagoda made of brass. Maybe keep three here. Next, tell your husband
not to go into the kitchen. Then try implementing a few luck-bringing
feng shui tips. First – check his sleeping direction. Try to capture
good luck by sleeping with the head pointed to his sheng chi direction.
Second – wear a good luck charm. There are many luck-bringing talismas
he can wear to attract good luck. I recommend the mantra ring to help
him overcome bad luck and attract good luck. Third – place a brass fan
symbol in the NW of the living room to transform his luck. Many people
have found this an easy and effective way to change their luck. See if
it works for him.
mother-in-law, who is fit as a fiddle at 65, has lived with us for the
past 10 years and continues to wreak havoc on my personal life. What
can I do to just get rid of her? We cannot kick her out, and she does
not cook, clean, drive or do anything good for me, my husband or child,
but gossips and bitches all day long, creating problems for us with the
rest of the family, and emotionally blackmails my husband by making
herself look like this harmless, most wonderful woman in the world.
Having her in the house is like having a witch stay with us.
I hope you felt getting that off your chest! Horrible mothers-in-law
are the bane of young wives and mothers. My sympathies are with you.
Hmmm … assuming she really is as bad as you paint, one way of reducing
her influence in the home is to place a ceramic pagoda in the Southwest
– the place of the matriarch. Better yet, place the pagoda inside her
bedroom as this is sure to keep her negative energies under control
without causing her any harm. If you find you need a stronger remedy,
hang a couple of six-rod windchimes in her room as well. This is also
for exhausting her energy. The problem is that in the year 2007, the
power of the Matriarch is at an all-time high. This is a year when
older women and mother figures enjoy excellent luck.
With that in mind, I would personally try another way. I would try
making friends with her. I am sure if you made genuine overtures of
friendship she would respond positively. Being skillful in your
interpersonal behaviour towards her might be far more effective than a
feng shui cure. Buy her small presents and suppress any hostility you
might be feeling towards her.
HAVE a tattoo of a dragon on my right shoulder blade. I am a Water Ox,
1973. Things have not been right since I had it done. Should I laser it
off? Any other options? Thanks so much.
DEFINITELY. To start with, the Dragon is a powerful creature and while
his image is auspicious and attracts luck, one needs to be very careful
where one places him. The Ox has no special relationship with the
Dragon, so having this tattooed on the shoulder is not beneficial. More
importantly however, never tattoo any of the celestial creatures on
your shoulder – right or left – as this symbolises that you carrying a
burden. On your right, it means you will have money burdens and on your
left, means you will have relationship burdens. So If you can, get
boyfriend, whom I have been dating for six years, lied to me (just over
a year into our relationship) about another girl. Since then, I have
not been able to let go completely. I get very uncomfortable whenever
he is with other girls. Is there anything I can do to ease my mind of
these unnecessary troubles as well as to ensure that my partner will
remain true to me?
AH, my dear –
there is never a permanent guarantee when it comes to fidelity in a
relationship. When partners stray into the arms of another lover, it is
not about trust alone. I would like to encourage you to let go of this
baggage of “not being able to trust him” and of feeling uncomfortable.
Let me set your relationship in perspective for you. You have been
together for six years and you still feel insecure in this
relationship. This is a feeling that will never go away, so either you
accept it and learn to live with it or find someone else. Sure, I can
suggest a couple of things for you to do to help him stay faithful – or
at least, never to start something serious with someone else – but are
you certain he is the right guy for you? Are you sure you are the right
girl for him? Believe me there is NO guarantee of fidelity.
