In the blink of an eye, we will be welcoming the Year of the Rabbit, whose docile and diplomatic traits foretell a calmer year ahead. In comparison to the Tiger, the Rabbit is more agreeable,often preferring tact and negotiation over outright hostility, but while the Rabbit is less fierce, it is also as cunning as a fox.
The Paht Chee chart of 2023 is an unbalanced one, suggesting continued instability and disorder. A lack of METAL and EARTH, which represent Resources and Power respectively, present ever evolving challenges despite the year seeming more subdued, which is why everyone needs the 5 Element Balancing Amulet, aswell as to actively introduce these elements into one’s personal space. An easy way to do this is to wear jewellery made of metal and gemstones, such as the Sky Animals Charm Bracelet range.
The year has good prospects for growth as evidenced by the presence of the Lap Chun, but with 3 of the 4 pillars being Yin, there is risk that many will fear making the wrong move and this can lead to inaction or stagnation. Displaying the Cosmic Raven in one’s living space will help one make the right decisions; this sky bird also attracts the luck of good timing, so that you do not miss good opportunities that come your way.
FENG SHUI 2023 : RELATIONSHIP STAR DOMINATES THE YEAR
In 2023, the center of the Lo Shu grid is occupied by the #4 Star. It thus becomes the dominant star of the year, which casts its influence over every person in every sector of every space, in every part of the world. As the #4 star is the Relationship Star, this suggests that people will get along better with one another, and successful new alliances and partnerships can sprout up across the globe. After a year of grappling with power tussles and conflict that have brought on all kinds of problems, working together may be just what is needed for the world to move forward.
This year we thus introduce the Cardinal Connectivity Activator featuring the four cardinal signs of the Zodiac to enhance networking luck and to promote harmony. When depicted together, they bring great wealth and new opportunities. The best way to ensure continuously productive relationships is to have a good balance of yin and yang, thus the CHIEN and KUN trigrams are included to prevent relationships from becoming overly one-sided. We recommend for all homes to have this powerful enhancer in the center sector; and offices as well. You can also carry the charm version of this activator to attract good allies everywhere you go.
LUCKY & UNLUCKY HOME ORIENTATIONS
East facing homes will need to be remedied, as the front of the home plays host to the annual Illness Star #2 in the East, Loss Star #7 in the NE and Quarrelsome Star in the Southeast.
Homes with North-South orientations have the lucky 8 and 9 stars, boosting wealth and prosperity luck. And for all other homes, try to use the North and South parts of the home more often, to bring their lucky energies to life.
Homes that face SW do not lose out either, as these enjoy the most auspicious energies of the three white stars – 1,6 and 8.
