Feng Shui Astrology for August 2021

RAT – FEELING INSPIRED
1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020

The Rat is blessed with the Peach Blossom Star putting you more in the mood for romance! A good time to move things along if there’s someone you’ve been dating casually. If not, and you want to meet someone, carry the Love Amulet with Moon Rabbit to attract new love into your life. The #4 star also brings you fresh spurts of creativity, allowing you to excel in anything that requires imagination. A prolific time for writers, artists, actors, creators! School-going Rats make good progress in their studies and any exams taking place this month benefit from the energies that surround you. Student Rats can enhance your study luck with the Manjushri “Dhih” Scholastic Amulet or display the Dragon Carp on your work desk.

OX – BEWARE ILLNESS ENERGIES
1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021

The Ox suffers from depleted energy levels with the hovering illness star. Take extra care of your health this month. Get sufficient rest with your hectic schedule. When you don’t get enough sleep, your immune system weakens making you more susceptible to all kinds of health threats. Protect yourself when out in public. Mask up and sanitize your hands regularly. Carry the Tortoise and Snake Health Talisman and “Om” Dakini Spirit Enhancing Amulet. In your work, while you feel like venturing out to chase down new opportunities, beware overzealousness. Better to delegate some tasks to your team. Spreading out the work will let you focus on the most pressing tasks, given the limited energy you have.

TIGER BEWARE ILLNESS ENERGIES
1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

The visiting illness star takes its toll, making you more susceptible to falling sick. As we’re still battling COVID threats, take health matters seriously. Carry the Garuda Wu Lou Health Amulet. The pace at work may be quicker than you would like, but don’t get overly competitive worrying about others getting head of you. Collaborate instead! While it may not be in the Tiger’s inherent nature to ask for help, the positive slant is that when you do, others soften towards you when they see your more vulnerable side. Use this opportunity to bond with your colleagues and to turn rivals into allies. Money luck is neutral so avoid taking risks here. Carry the Wealth Income-Generating Amulet to improve things on the financial front.

RABBIT – WINDFALL LUCK
1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

The Rabbit has a good time this month as luck comes in droves! There’s plenty of recognition at work in store, and these successes, however small, make for a happy and productive Rabbit. Don’t discount the small steps you are making; these are stepping-stones to bigger success soon! There is also windfall luck to tap – either a money bonus, new contract, work promotion… If there’s something you really want, don’t be too tight-fisted. Spoil yourself. Spending money when you’ve been conserving can get the flow going again. When you spend some money, what you’re doing is you are making room for more to come in. Another good way to jump-start your wealth flow is to do some charity. Give some money away. Activate your lucky stars this month with the Sum-of-Ten Amulet and attract supporters with the Nobleman Gui Ren Talisman. For wealth, wear the Blue Sandstone with Wealth Charm bracelet.

DRAGON – LOSS ENERGIES; BEWARE
1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

Dragons must be extra careful as the Loss Star brings robbery, money loss and betrayals. Take more care with personal safety. Don’t get careless. And don’t trust others too easily, even those closest to you. There are some people in your midst who will take advantage of your good nature if they get the chance. Not a good month to start new ventures or to sign any new deals. Wait till the month is over. For now, lie low, avoid speculating, don’t risk your money, and keep an eye on your cash flow. You don’t want to be strapped for cash when unexpected expenses crop up. Neutralise the afflictions by carrying the Kuan Kung on Horseback Anti-Betrayal Amulet and keep a Mini Tree of Life 5 Element Pagoda close by at all times.

SNAKE – AGGRAVATING TIMES
1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

Everything that seemed to go smoothly now appears to have problems. But a lot of this will be your mindset, so stop looking at obstacles as dilemmas. Put on your thinking cap, because the Snake actually does better when faced with a challenge, than when everything is too “easy”. Do be careful though with the #7 Star. It brings real risk of money loss, so avoid speculation, be careful when investing, and conserve your cash. There is danger to personal safety, so stay alert. Carry the Anti-Burglary Amulet against loss, and the Snake & Tortoise Amulet to protect your good health. In general, you don’t want too much to “happen” this month. If nothing happens, be thankful. Leave the big things for next month.

HORSE – QUARRELS & CONFLICT
1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

The Quarrelsome Star brings conflict to the Horse, who will feel more provoked and more prone to outbursts of emotions. This moodiness of yours is not conducive to a productive time at work and can cause all kinds of misunderstandings to flare up. Display the Rooster with Crown on your desk to dissolve conflict and politicking at work. Keep your emotions in check. If not careful, you may overstep your boundaries and cause harm to otherwise good relationships. Think before you speak and maintain a level head. Carry the Apple Peace Amulet or “Enhancing Relationships” Amulet. Don’t make important decisions this month; you may not be thinking clearly.

SHEEP – MISFORTUNE STAR
1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

The Sheep gets afflicted by the Five Yellow. Joining the annual Quarrelsome Star, this is unfortunately cause for concern. Subdue the energies of the wu wang by carrying the 5 Element Pagoda with Tree of Life Amulet to avoid all kinds of mishaps. Focus on getting current work done rather than taking on new responsibilities. You could end up spreading yourself too thin and run the risk of being overworked and performing under par. Place a Garuda Wu Lou by your bedside. In personal relationships, you are not at your best, and stress may put you in an extremely negative mood. Try not to take out your temper on loved ones. Walk away from an argument rather than persist, then end up doing or saying something you regret. Your luck improves vastly next month.

MONKEY – AVOID IMPORTANT DECISIONS THIS MONTH
1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

A difficult time with the misfortune star hovering. There seems to be never-ending problems to solve at work. Doesn’t help that office politics may rear its ugly head. The increased stress can cause you to have a very short fuse with those closest to you. Don’t take out your issues with them. Use them as your confidante instead. They could help you come up with good solutions for your problems. Suppress conflict at work with a Rooster with Crown on your work desk. Carry the mini or amulet version of the 5 Element Pagoda with Tree of Life. If you have important discussions, interviews or meetings, place the pagoda in front of you or in your pocket during the meeting. But best to refrain from important discussions or decisions this month if you can.

ROOSTER – SHOW OFF A LITTLE
1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

The Victory Star makes this is a bright and beautiful month, bringing success and money luck and putting you ahead of the competition. Whatever field you may be working or operating in, others look to you for guidance. Your leadership skills are so apparent that even if you’re not the boss, you become de facto leader of your team. A good time to show those who matter what you’re made of. No need to be overly humble, but the Rooster already knows that! Show off your skills a little. This is a time to catch the eye of someone who can make a big difference to your future, so don’t waste it. Seize the opportunities that come to you. Be courageous. Step out of your comfort zone. Boost good fortune luck this month with the Windhorse Success Amulet. Because you’re riding high, you could attract some jealousy. Carry the Evil Eye Medallion to neutralise this and to turn enemies into amigos.

DOG – DANGER OF FIRE / ILLNESS
1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

The Magnifying Star magnifies the Robbery Star #7 in your chart, increasing risk of loss and betrayal. Definitely a month to stay under the radar. Don’t attract too much attention and don’t put your money at risk. No speculation, no gambling, no big investments. Delay starting anything new. Don’t trust others easily. If you have some big secret and you don’t want it shared, don’t tell anyone! Confidences get broken whether intentionally or not, so don’t risk your relationships by giving others the opportunity to “betray your trust”. Carry the “Kuan Kung on Horseback” Amulet against disloyalties and the Night Spot Protection Talisman to stay safe from petty criminals and general harm. Lie low and hang on tight till the month is over.

BOAR – DANGER OF FIRE / ILLNESS
1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

August can be a difficult time with the #9 star magnifying the Loss Star #7. Don’t gamble. Don’t risk money on precarious investments. Don’t speculate on the stock market. The #7 brings money loss but also betrayal, so watch who you invite into your inner circle. Be warm, be friendly, but don’t be too trusting. Anyone can have a hidden agenda, and with luck like yours, the agendas of others won’t align with yours. Best to rely on yourself than others this month. The star combo in your chart also affects your health, causing fatigue and illness. Carry the Tortoise-Snake Health Talisman and Good Fortune Lock Amulet to suppress the unlucky energies of the month. Next month is far better.
