I HAVE been an avid reader of
your feng shui books for many years. I have tried to make many changes
in my home and my work environment but just do not seem to be making
progress. By the way, I live in South Africa. I was promoted to Branch
Manager of Absa Bank Pavilion Branch in 2002 and since then it has been
one problem after another, especially with staff members and senior
management. I am always in trouble and now that Absa is going through
restructuring, I feel very uncertain about my job. My office’s south
west corner is missing and I do not know how to rectify this problem.

Well, the first thing is not to let the situation defeat you or affect
your confidence. From what I can see, the move and change of premises
at work and in the home definitely affected you negatively – it happens
to many of us. In the hustle and bustle of moving, we often forget and
lose sight of the importance of ensuring that our good feng shui
continues. If your south west corner is missing, it is quite a shame
because the SW is really auspicious this year. But there are other ways
of improving your luck. I can suggest two things: First, “move the
energy” both at work and in the home. In your work place, move your
desk and chair to the SW direction about eighteen inches or so … then
clean the space and move the desk back. While doing this also take the
opportunity to spring clean your work environment. Then get a bright
light and place it on the SW of your desk.
Secondly, try to find where the mountain star 8 is located in your
office. It governs the luck of your colleagues and also affects your
effectiveness as a leader. Get my book Feng Shui For Period 8 and look
for the chart that applies to your office. It will give you the
location of the mountain star 8. Then get a crystal geode and place it
there. This is sure to improve relationships with your colleagues and
If all else fails, try placing a red lamp on your table to make working
life less aggravating. And try smiling rather than looking as harassed
as you sound.
DEAR MS TOO,
IT is nice of you to answer letters despite your busy schedule. We live
in a house built in 1992-1993 and it was very lucky for us till 2004.
Social life was great till then. Since 2004, we have been lucky with
everything except relationships.
Our kids are doing well, finances are great. The only problem has been
relationships and social life with friends and family, and as husband
and wife. In some cases, relationship has deteriorated completely.
We have a west-facing house which is a foyer and our southwest is the
garage with a bedroom above it. My kua # is 3 and our southwest is the
living room and I have tried to energise that for love and relationship.
We have bought a lot and are making plans for a new house which will
take about a year to complete, but till then, what can we do to improve
our relationship problems?
Please help if you can. Vinty Judge
IF you want to use feng shui to improve your relationship, I would
advise you to immediately activate all the auspicious mountain stars in
your home. This means mountain star 8, 6 or 9. They will add zing to
your social life without you even trying. So get my Flying Star book,
find the chart that applies to your house and determine the sectors of
your home that are the mountain stars I mentioned. The most important
is mountain star 8 – and you activate this with the image of a
mountain. Shine a bright light at the mountain.
It can also be that your home is suffering from a real lack of yang
energy. Is it too quite? Or has the energy gone stale? Are stacks of
newspaper blocking any of your doors and windows? Sometimes, junk
builds up in the house without us knowing and they start to affect
certain aspects of our lives. It is so vital to be alert to changes in
energy. Once you find out what is wrong, get some new energy into the
home to revitalise it. Open doors and windows and play loud music.
Nothing very difficult – just adding more life and zing into the energy
of your home. You will find that things will improve. As for the
relationship between you and your husband, I suggest you activate the
peach of blossom star at your entrance with a variety of crystals.
Then, in the centre of the house and the northwest of the living room,
place a few crystal apples to create peace and foster a rediscovery of
I AM an ardent fan of yours. I always look forward to seeing your programmes on air. You are so beautiful!
Anyway, most of the time, I try to follow all the methods you suggest
on becoming rich, the latest being wearing the 9-eyed dzi purchased
from WOFS. Most of my feng shui things are purchased from wofs.com
I am a retired person and working in a private company and so is my
husband. We have two children studying overseas. Of course, a lot of
money is spent on their education. I am still waiting for some serious
wealth luck to be blessed upon us. I am a Tiger and my husband is a

IT’S always lovely to receive a compliment. Thank you – I do try to
look good by paying attention to my health and my skin, as I believe
that this is what can also attract good feng shui.
You ask about getting rich.. well, this is the result of many factors,
as I am sure you know. Feng shui is one dimension of the get-rich
process. You can use feng shui to improve your income levels and raise
your standard of living - but to become really wealthy, I believe one
must also have the ‘life destiny’ or karma. In your case, it sounds
like you are doing fine. If you want to do a little better, you can
always activate the water star 8 or install a water feature in the
south west which is the indirect spirit of this period of 8. When you
place a special kind of water – one with six levels and three mountain
peaks incorporated into the design – and in the correct corner of your
home, it does make a good deal of difference to your wealth luck.
In addition, do also consider placing a few three-legged toads under
your sofas and desks – these cute little fellas are really excellent
for attracting money into the family. If you have a staircase, place
them on a few steps going up as well. Then make sure your home is well
lit to ensure a good supply of yang energy.
Finally, I do want to sat that getting rich is as much an ‘attitude’ as
anything else. Think rich by being generous, not miserly. And
consciously work at prosperity programming. Never, never succumb to
poverty programming – always saving for a rainy day that you’re too
scared to spend. That is what makes people poor, no matter what the
feng shui. So it has a lot to do with your attitude as well.
