This week, I am going to discuss the forecast for the coming month.

According to Feng Shui, this month, the directions to be wary of are the north, the southwest and the east. Sectors that can be tapped for their beneficial energies are the northwest and the south. Our effort should be to utilise the beneficial areas to the maximum, while avoiding the negative areas. The energies present during the month have the most effect where the main door, the bedroom door or the office is located. Note that the direction facing your main door or house is not necessarily where your main door is located.

The northern direction is where the annual #2 Black star will reside this year. Named as the sickness star, when coupled with the monthly #5 Yellow, its combination is deadly. You will face bad luck if your house entrance is in the north, or your bedroom is located there. The best way out would be to either use another bedroom or place the bed in another direction. The best way to counter #2 and #5 is to use lot of metal in this direction. Hang a six-rod all metal chime and a set of six Chinese coins, but don’t drill a nail, instead, try sticking it.

People having bedrooms or offices in the southwest direction may find themselves involved in car accidents or mishaps during travels. Or you may find yourself with a sprained leg or in worse, a broken leg. Be careful when using sharp metal object such as knives or axes or anything that is made of metal. This direction is also bad for young males who are a little rebellious. Use the colour red as a cure.

Exercise control over your emotions if you have a bedroom in the east. In case there is a sharp-edged object here, a lawsuit that has been going on for some time will take a turn for the worse. Also, avoid entering into arguments.

In the western sector, although visited by the very auspicious annual #8 White, this month’s star too will play some havoc with your health and may create a little difficulty or confusion at work if your bedroom or office is located in this direction.

Knowing in advance what effects the negative energies of a sector can have on your well-being, and by exercising caution, you can succeed in manipulating the energies of your living environment to your own benefit.

The northwest sector promotes plenty of opportunities in planning new business ventures. Use this area if you are in the profession of marketing. The southern direction is beneficial for studies, academic or relationship pursuits. If your office is in this sector, resourceful business ideas will be generated, and promotion opportunities will increase.

Take these precautions and the month will benefit you in all ways!
