The Rabbit Year & Feng Shui – Part1

The Year of the Rabbit 2023 – Part1 – Afflictions

Extract from the rabbit Feng Shui prognosis for the year 2023

After recent years of upheaval and uncertainty, the energy entering 2023 will be replaced with a new light, hopeful, and sweeter energy.

The Year of the Tiger was the first year to bring spring energy as it is the first of the 3 spring zodiac animals Tiger, Rabbit and Dragon. The rabbit represents the fullness of spring when nature blooms and green growth appears.

The rabbit energy will offer us a respite from the cold, harsh energies of the past few years that have been aligned with the metal element and the winter animals of the pig, rat, and ox.

Also, the reigning Star of the Year accompanying Rabbit is the 4 Star of Love. And what animal goes so well with this kind of blossom-soft energy as a fluffy bunny?

The 4 is the star for education and writing luck as well as for travel and romance.

The coming year will have its bumps as usual, but it will also have more ease and bring us joy as the 4-star slides in after we’ve turned the calendar page to 2023 and the tiger has retired to the forest.

I know that you will love the beautiful and calming energy that the rabbit brings and because of the 4 stars that will be his companion in the coming year.

Look for ways to bring joy, beauty and pleasant moments into your year. It is the best way to use this sweet and tender energy that the rabbit and the 4 stars offer us.

Year of the Rabbit Official Date

The Lunar New Year will be Sunday, January 22, 2023. Be sure to make your home ready for the coming New Year to welcome a brand-new set of energies to your home and life.

2023: The last year in the period from 8

Period 8 is a 20-year cycle that began in February 2004 and ends on February 3, 2024. This was a “young man” period when internet giants like Mark Zuckerburg appeared like flowers in a spring rain.

During 2023 we will complete a 20 year cycle that will change next year in period 9.

In period 9 the new energy will be female. The 9 stars rule fire and the middle daughter so we will see how women advance in position and power. This will happen next February 4th, 2024. It’s going to be an exciting time!

Now let’s talk about the energies of the year….

Read each of the energies to determine how they might affect you and your family. Pay close attention to the energies that are at your front door, bedroom or home office.

It is also advisable to look at who is occupying the sectors where ailments appear. If you have old, sick, very young, or pregnant family members in these corners, it might be wise to move them to another bedroom if possible.

As always, it is best to be prepared for difficulties. When that is done, you can look forward to a year of opportunity and adventure, love and contentment, pleasure and joy.

The 5 yellow “Bone Breaker” star flies to the Northwest Breadwinner sector

This star is the unluckiest of all stars. The 5 yellow star brings bad luck, misunderstandings, bad luck, accidents and financial problems. This is especially true if you sleep in this sector, work or your front door is in the affected sector. Be especially careful if any of these apply to you.

This is the sector of the breadwinner or family man and he will be hit the hardest. It also affects the zodiac signs Dog and Pig. It will be prudent to be cautious with health, spending and investing this year. Older men should pay special attention to their health, especially with blood pressure, stroke and heart problems. It would be advisable to remedy this.

2 Black Illness Star flies to East Health, Oldest Son and Family Sector

In 2023, the 2 star flies east, into the family, growth and eldest son area. However, all ailments can affect anyone in the family, including your pets. This year, the 2nd Black Illness star is in a fighting position to the east.

This is the meeting of two giants: the big earth of the 2-star and the big forest of the 3-star. You could say it’s a battle of the titans. When the 2 and 3 meet, they form what is called the “bullfighting” energy. This can mean families face legal complications or fights.

It can also cause stomach problems in the home and pose health challenges for the eldest son. It can also mean that as soon as someone in a family gets sick, everyone in the family gets sick. Pay close attention to prevent the spread of diseases.

This sector affects the feet and lower legs. Exercise caution when engaging in activities as this may result in a twisted ankle, broken foot or foot injuries. Earth-related diseases will become more common and could show up as stomach problems, gallbladder problems, ulcers and colitis.

If you have underlying health concerns, these could be blooming under the influence of the 2 Star this year. Like the 1-Star, the 2-Star is ruled by Jupiter, only it amplifies the difficulties of the 2-Star rather than creating advantages like the 1-Star does.

 

3 Jade Star Flies to the southeast sector of wealth and the eldest daughter

The 3 argument star moves to the eldest daughter and investments and assets area. This star is also known to stir up legal troubles, gossip, arguments and bickering. It’s especially tough on couples, and creates that weary emotional exhaustion that can sometimes end relationships — or bring in a third party.

The bigger concern?

Emotional and nervous disorders that are so distressing that they can result in divorce, severe depression, or a nervous breakdown. Watch out for legal issues, arguments over money, trouble from the eldest daughter, or emotional problems if this is your front door, bedroom, or home office.

The 7 Red Violence Star

In 2023, the red 7-star moves from the west to the northeast corner. Since this is the sector that rules wisdom, there can be difficulties in thinking clearly, injuries to the hand and bullying at school.

The 7 Star affects the Ox and Tiger zodiac signs the most this year, so these zodiac signs need to be extra careful this year with what they say, their relationships, proneness to infection, accidents and theft.

This star is ruled by the planet Venus. Since the 7 star is an affected star, it represents the negative traits of Venus. Since Venus rules attractiveness and relationships, the negatives expressed would be problematic relationships, arguments and narcissism.

Wherever the 7 stars fall, the tendency for clipping and loss follows. This can be breaking off relationships, quitting jobs, or losing family members.

More than relationship problems and difficulties, this star can cause a lot of problems from robbery, accidents, quarrels, slander, gossip, injuries and lung diseases.

The biggest concern is the possible harm to children in educational settings. Pay close attention to your child’s school environment and how to protect it. Another concern is having a pregnant woman in this corner, as the 7-star rating could bring worries with bleeding or pregnancy loss.

The 3 Killings direction

This suffering moves in a new direction every year, and this year it flies west. The 3 kills can affect the ability to focus, communicate, and create harsh words between people. Lawsuits, Slander, and Slander are also a potential under the influence of 3 Killings and cause three types of losses, such as: B. loss of reputation, loss of a loved one or loss of money.

The 3 Killings occupy 90 degrees on the compass. If you sit within that 90 degrees with your back toward the 3 kills, you are exposing yourself to their detrimental influence. Make sure you avoid sitting with your back to the 3 Killings. This year that means you should be FACING WEST.

Good days for restarting work and traveling in the year of the water tiger

Good days for restarting work and traveling in the year of the water tiger

Chinese New Year marks the first day of the new year in the Chinese calendar. Also known as the Spring Festival or New Year Festival, it is celebrated for 15 days. The first day of the Chinese New Year 2022 falls on February 1st and marks the beginning of the Year of the Tiger. This is the longest and most important of all Chinese festivals.

– Good activities to do during this time of year include:
– Making offerings to household gods.
– Wear new clothes, especially red.
– Hosting a large banquet for family and friends.
– Choose good dates for specific activities

For good business luck in the coming year, it is important to choose a good day to reopen the office after the Chinese New Year break.

When you reopen your office or business premises, it’s good to make some noise with a lion dance. If you can, it is also auspicious when the lions roll into your office in buckets full of tangerines, Chinese coins and bars – as this symbolizes the rolling in of gold, wealth and prosperity and bodes good luck in the future year.

If you plan to travel during the 15 days of Chinese New Year, whether for vacation or for work, be sure to choose a good date. This, too, will affect your luck for the rest of the year. However, avoid traveling on days that “conflict” with your zodiac sign.

Chinese New Year 2022

Chinese New Year 2022

Chinese New Year falls on February 1st, 2022. This day is a very important day, a day when tradition is best kept as faithfully as possible to ensure abundance and prosperity follow you throughout the year. So important is the Chinese New Year that preparations begin as early as a month before the new moon — buying new clothes, preparing food, doing house repairs, ordering flowers, and cleaning altars — all just to make sure the house gets a thorough spring cleaning and bring some NEW furniture for the year if possible.

The house should also be adorned with fruiting linden trees as well as flowering plants before January 18 to introduce excellent growth energy into the house and invite everyone at home with fresh new opportunities for prosperity and professional advancement.

Auspicious sonnets, especially with the Chinese word “Fuk (Chinese word for good fortune)”, are usually hung at the entrance of the house along with some red lanterns to add more auspicious energy to this biggest Chinese celebration of the year.

THINGS TO DO BEFORE CHINESE NEW YEAR

1. Carry out repairs

Families should start checking their homes for defects before the Chinese New Year and make sure everything is working well in the house. Leaking toilets, broken faucets, broken roof tiles, leaking ceilings, etc. need to be fixed. Leaking water means loss of both wealth and health. Anything that impacts the kitchen or dining room can have an awkward impact on your rice bowl. Other areas that are critical to repair are areas around the main door as well as your bedroom. Cracked walls and broken doors can cause serious problems when carried into the new year.

If you can, you should also give your home a fresh coat of paint every year or at least every two years to start the year with a clean slate and give you plenty of new opportunities for improvement. You need to focus on spring cleaning and that means removing last year’s “junk” and that includes old newspapers, magazines, books, plastic bags, broken containers and clothes that you want to throw away. Allowing clutter to build up makes the problems you face worse.

Also, check your cutlery and crockery and discard any chipped, cracked or damaged cutlery. Damaged utensils are a sign of lost luck and bring home bad feng shui. This affects the wealth of the family.

Check your beds for damage. Sleeping on damaged or broken beds puts obstacles in everything you do. Success will be affected if the bed frame is damaged. It also creates cracks in your business relationships as well as your personal relationships including your marriage.

Inspect closets and drawers and remove mismatched socks, torn or worn underwear, shirts, pants, and damaged shoes. Discard clothing that you haven’t worn in over a year. Clearing out your closets symbolizes removing negative energy and making room for NEW things to come to you.

2. Stock up on your kitchen.

You need to start the new year with a completely restocked kitchen. Start with your closets and fridge. Remove and discard expired food. Clean your rice urn, wash and dry it, then place a red packet with 3 dynasty coins tied with red thread at the base and fill it to the brim with new rice. Keep your rice urn at least three-quarters full during the 15 days of Chinese New Year. Next, stock up your fridge for Chinese New Year, as it is important to have food in the home for the 15 days.

3. Update your home’s feng shui

You should update your home’s feng shui after December 21, 2021 (winter solstice) and before February 4, 2022, the beginning of the solar year.

In fact, many adhere to the traditional method of beginning after the winter solstice, as this marks the change of Tai Sui. It is believed that the annual 3 kills will also take effect from this date.

The annual Lo Shu numbers come into effect on February 4th, the day of Lap Chun. If you plan to reuse your feng shui cures, you must wipe them with a damp cloth soaked in cleaning water. But it’s always best to use a NEW remedy. Realize that feng shui remedies work by absorbing bad energies from the past year and once a remedy has done its work you should withdraw it and replace it with a new one. If you intend to reuse, the cure must be cleaned with cleaning water. Once you have finished updating your home’s feng shui, you should perform the room cleaning ritual.

4. How to prepare cleaning water?

Petals of 5 types of flowers are required for the cleaning water. It is best if you get flowers representing the 5 elements – blue (water), yellow (earth), green (wood), red (fire) and white (metal) and kaffir lime leaves (you can use fresh lime use). or lemons if you can’t get kaffir leaves) and also add 1 tablespoon of sea salt.

Soak the above in a bowl of water and place in the sun for 10 minutes before using. Rinse your cleaning cloth in the mixture, squeeze dry, and then wipe away all of your remedies, enhancers, and good luck charms and good luck symbols in your home. You can also use this water to clean your home altar and statues.

5. How to perform the room purification ritual

Open all your windows and doors and turn on all the lights. It’s best to do this during the day. Light sandalwood incense with kemenyen plus 1 tablespoon purifying incense powder in an incense burner.

Dog is men’s good friend who can understand the human spirit and obey its master, whether he is wealthy or not. Chinese people regard it as an auspicious animal.
