Ready to invite more love, luck and prosperity into your life?
The Chinese New Year (the year of the goat or sheep), which launches off on February 4, is the perfect time to shift your furniture around and try some feng shui.
Aim to clean and declutter your home before the February 18 new moon, then add a few of the lucky items listed below.
The luckiest feng shui energy will swing around to the north in 2015 (after spending a year in the south), so if your door faces this direction, this might be a bumper year!
To enhance your luck in 2015:
Use and energise your northern sector
Hang a crystal sun catcher in the northern part of your home, to bounce light around.
Use northern rooms more frequently, or enter through a north-facing door.
Add touches of red to your home or garden’s north sector, like flowers or pots.
Light up the northern part of your home and garden, indoors and out.
Add red to the lucky south west
The south west is the second luckiest sector this year (after the north), so try to use this part of your home regularly and add a load of bright pink or red flowers.
Add shades of pink and red to the south west sector to energise your love life or attract more romance.
If you’re looking for love, hang romantic artworks in the south west, or fill this part of the garden with flowers.
Pink and red candles should liven up your love life, while pairs of ornamental ducks or lovebirds can work like a charm.
Keep your western sector quiet
To avoid bad luck in 2015, keep your western sector quiet this year, and delay renovations until next year if possible.
Metal objects, like coins, bells and windchimes will help to harmonize the energy, so don’t stress: hang a little bell on your front door if it faces west.
The luckiest numbers, colours and flowers for 2015 are:
- Lucky numbers: 2, 7, or numbers like 27 and 72
- Lucky colors: red, purple and shades of brown
- Lucky flowers: pink carnations and primroses
Carnations can be found in a wide range of colors, and while in general they express love, fascination and distinction. Pink carnations symbolise a mother’s undying love.
