Feng Shui World Latest Issue (January/February 2012) is Out. Get Your Copy Now!
Feng Shui World magazine enters its 10th year in circulation, while World of Feng Shui celebrates its Zodiac Anniversary marking 12 years in business. We started in year 2000 in the year of the Golden Dragon and this year, as we enter 2012, we complete one full cycle to meet the mighty Water Dragon. Thus there is a lot to celebrate!
Our January issue has turned into a real page turner as we bring you many truly in-depth stories, how-to articles and reference tables and charts to let you navigate successfully through the start of what promises to be a year full of opportunity!
Seasoned feng shui practitioners know that what you do at the start of the year as the chi energies change has a significant bearing on how the year unfolds for you, so it is important to get things right from the start. Lillian Too's major story is thus a sector by sector analysis of the 2012 chart, with specific, clear-cut suggestions and instructions on how you can enhance auspicious indications, and how you can avoid bad luck by suppressing the unlucky stars and afflictions.
Lillian also shares with our readers a great find - how to install and set up a Water Dragon Aquarium. She has personally done this for her home, as well as for the World of Feng Shui Flagship Store in MidValley and we are feeling the huge difference already! Do not miss this article, and if you can, think seriously about setting up your own Water Dragon ecosystem if you want to fully tap into the benefits of what the year can bring! As well as being great fun to make, the positive effects work very quickly! WOFS is also offering "Make Your Own Water Dragon Ecosystem" packages; for more info, visit our MidValley Megamall outlet.
Another thing unique to Dragon years is the great wish that Chinese families have for Dragon Babies. Whether parents or grandparents to be, the thought of a newborn Dragon child seems to be irresistible. Why does everyone want a Dragon child? Honey Lim examines this phenomenon and we feature celebrities expecting Dragon babies in the coming months.
We are also looking at the possible contenders for Oscar nominations and wins. The past year saw plenty of talent from Tinseltown. Probable frontrunners for acting awards feature real life personalities and true stories. We feature some of our favourites who we think can win, basing our choice on their performances as well as their astrological outlook during Oscar month.
On renovation and decoration ideas, lighting is an important feature this year because lights signify the missing Fire energy in the coming year's Paht Chee chart. So whatever kind of home you live in, and whatever your animal sign, putting thought into brightening your lighting is sure to be of benefit. Chris Yeo in his architectural feature focuses on the design of lighting for homes to achieve the best effects, advising on the best kinds for different rooms, and how to strike a good balance between enough light while creating a restful and harmonious ambience.
We also bring you the A-Z of feng shui for 2012 with golden nuggets of info on what you must do this Dragon Year to tap its awesome potential. Jancy Lew our Australian correspondent brings us a feng shui look at Melbourne, recently voted "most livable city" in the world; can it be its naturally auspicious landform feng shui? Success and happiness follows a rejuvenated soul and Lillian Too suggests 6 Great Ways to Lift your Spirits this year. I'd like to add a 7th way, and that's to follow your heart... if there is something you really want to do, find a way to do it!! Fresh back from Argentina, today's heartland of polo, I had ten awesomely wonderful days playing and riding horse after horse, and back now at work and about to embark on our Extravaganza Roadshows, I feel readier than ever to do anything at all! Take a break, go on vacation, but don't go just to rest... go to pursue a real passion. There is nothing better than wanting something and then just going and doing it! Like I did ha ha!
I look forward to meeting you at our Extravaganzas in Las Vegas, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Kota Kinabalu!
Happy New Year!
