Happy Metal Ox Year 🎋

Happy Lunar New Year – Metal Ox

METAL – This year is another Metal year giving us the energy influences of structure, habit, order, being detail oriented, as well as sticking closely to your daily routines. This year Yin’s mood will help you lighten up a bit on these above traits as opposed to last year with Yang Metal’s strong tone. Imbalances that may come up in a Metal year if you have a lot of Metal in your natal chart are: skin, lungs, large intestine, emotional blockages or melancholy. Over all this year is less intense than last year.

OX – Second in line on the list of the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animal signs (12 Earth Branches) that make up your Four Pillars natal chart. Hard working, stubborn, slow to action, stable, dependable, and usually calm, the Ox sticks to its routine. With dedication and tenacity, you can rely on the Ox to get it done with order and structure. They take their time to warm up to people but love spending time with their friends the Snake and the Rooster …Sheep steer clear of getting in Ox’s way this year.

HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR!

This is the Year of the Yin Metal Ox

Nine Star Astrology Number: 6


**Let’s take a look at this year by breaking it down into sections:

YIN – represents female, receptive energy, is about reflection, and being more open. This year, compared to last, you may find yourself more introspective since the Yin adds the feminine tone versus the masculine Yang.

METAL – This year is another Metal year giving us the energy influences of structure, habit, order, being detail oriented, as well as sticking closely to your daily routines. This year Yin’s mood will help you lighten up a bit on these above traits as opposed to last year with Yang Metal’s strong tone. Imbalances that may come up in a Metal year if you have a lot of Metal in your natal chart are: skin, lungs, large intestine, emotional blockages or melancholy. Over all this year is less intense than last year.

OX – Second in line on the list of the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animal signs (12 Earth Branches) that make up your Four Pillars natal chart. Hard working, stubborn, slow to action, stable, dependable, and usually calm, the Ox sticks to its routine. With dedication and tenacity, you can rely on the Ox to get it done with order and structure. They take their time to warm up to people but love spending time with their friends the Snake and the Rooster …Sheep steer clear of getting in Ox’s way this year.

6 Metal Yang Heaven/Father – Nine Star Astrology Number – This number gives us more of the Metal theme this year and enhances it because 6 is Yang. The Heaven/Father Gua (house) is somewhat of a perfectionist and works hard to achieve goals. So, with the Ox’s influence, this is a year to get things done. “Father” influence can be strict and demanding, so if you tend to be hard on yourself make sure you have down time this year, because those tendencies will be strong.

Overall, the Metal Ox year will be about attainment of prosperity through fortitude and hard work. If you are dependable, calm, methodical and stick to your routine you will come out ahead. Ox can be stubborn with strong opinions and doesn’t take kindly to criticism, even constructive. This is a year of being awarded positions of authority and trust if you play your cards right and follow your system.

A year for getting wrapped up with too much responsibilities, if you let Yourself …be ahead of the game in your thinking and get your “down time” scheduled first. This way you can stay as balanced as you can throughout the year. Ox is logical and systematical so much so it can become predictable, so don’t get in a rut. A potentially slower year for outcomes but if you stick to your aims you will get there as Ox always does. A year of potential clashes with those that don’t have your same opinions or agree with your views. Please be kind in knowing everyone is where they are and we honor the process. When we do that, we also honor the process in ourselves and become more self-loving and our love cup gets a bit more full.

Resolutions to problems this year will be intense, so express yourself as clear and concise as you can knowing that it can get blown out of proportion, especially during Mercury Retrogrades this year, we’re in one now and going direct on the 20th. Try not to force your issue or be too narrow minded this year as arrogance might get the better of you in your stance or position on things. Ox can be vengeful when it doesn’t get it’s way.

This is a great year for completing your projects from last year and getting things done in a quieter, more Yin manner.

The last time we saw Metal Ox combination was between the dates of: February 15th 1961 – February 4th 1962 – If you were born between those dates you may hold many of the characteristics discussed here.

Feng Shui New Year Tip: Eat a Noodle dish with long noodles to signify a long life, eat something sweet to make this year sweeter, and place a Red Envelope with a handful of rice in it in the far left corner as you are walking through your front door, which is the Money or Wealth corner. Place the envelope there with the intention of growing your wealth and abundance, whatever that means to you for this new year. You are reminded of it and tune into that energy whenever you walk by and see it.

Wishing everyone health and success in the New Year of Metal Ox!

FENG SHUI TIPS FOR WOOD SEASON “SPRING FLING”

Only two more weeks until Chinese New Year, yet, because it’s a Leap Year in the Chinese Calendar there are/were 13 new moons before February 12th this year, giving us 2 Wood Seasons under the Rat Year. February 3rd kicks off our final Wood Season of the Rat Year and for 3 months with the start of the new year coming, it’s a great time to sow your seeds and expand your mind. Wood season runs approximately February 4th to May 5th each year.

Wood is the element of sprouting, growth, planning, and expansion. It has generated being Strong and Flexible, from all the Water element of the winter season. It’s flexible, resilient and bends when needed, but if pushed too hard will snap, and the flip side of too much wood can be anger and control.

If you were born in this season you may have some of the following qualities: Wood is kind-hearted, generous, friendly and able to make decisions easily when in a balanced state. Imbalances in Wood that come through the body are in the forms of: Liver, Gallbladder, Muscles, Eyes, Tendons and Ligaments.

The flavor is sour. The colors are Green and Light Blues, the shape is Rectangle, the climate is Wind and it is Yang in nature. Wood is connected to the directions on the compass of East and South East.

Use this as a guide to look at those areas of your home associated with Wood energy, East and South East, and see what is happening in there in your home or office and make sure of the usual Feng Shui tidbits:

  • Try your best to have no clutter
  • Keep these areas well maintained
  • Put your intentions in this space of what you want to accomplish
  • Allow an opening for change and new energy

Stagnation and clutter in these areas of the home, East/South East, can cause confusion, indecision, and frustration, and in doing so, create anger. With the New Year coming and Wood Season upon us it’s a great time for “spring cleaning”. Out with the old, so new energy has room to come in. The idea is we want to invite the energy we want in our lives by keeping those areas open, welcoming, and supported by balancing the energy there following the steps mentioned above. The great thing about a New Year is we have 3 more Seasons/Elements to go, and each is connected to areas of your home via the compass directions so you can easily declutter in sections accordingly to keep it simple.

**Follow my blog to stay in touch with updates to the Seasons and much more!!**

Have a Wonderful Wood/Spring Season and a Happy and Balanced New Year.

Room by Room Tour

How to use Classical Feng Shui throughout the Home. I will break it down into a room by room discussion, doing my best to offer certain, general Feng Shui rules. Keep in mind, your personalized Chinese Astrology Chart and Front Door compass direction will tell much more of the details of your home or office, yet, with the room by room tour there are still some things that you can do!

Love & Light Jacqueline Pepper


LIVING ROOMS / GREAT ROOMS

Many homes are moving away from formal living rooms and focusing more on great rooms… either way both rooms should feel open, light and inviting. Act as though you are the Chi entering the room. Does it feel open? Does it flow and feel free? Is the seating set up in a way that allows for an inviting feel where people want to hang and stay for a while? These are all good aims when supporting the Feng Shui of your living room.

Bring nature indoors with the windows reflecting outside….the energies and textures of elements help keep balance and harmony. Make sure that no energy is being blocked or overstuffed with items and furniture. When considering the intention of the room, which is unique & different for each family living there … place the items and arrange the furniture with the intention you are setting. In other words, if you want the room to be Yang and high energy use bright colors and place TV, Music and Games in this area. If the intention for the room is Yin and tranquil energy, place books and pillows with softer items and darker colors.

Your personalized BaZi, Four Pillars, Chart and Door Direction personalize the space for the family living there and give me the information I need to create the right energetic home for you.

The above are some overall things you can consider with the Living/Great Room.


KITCHEN

The kitchen should be bright in color, Yellow which is Earth element, is one of my favorites. If building a kitchen in a new home that you are designing, we Practitioners prefer it to be located in the East, South East Sector of the home, direction wise. This way the hot afternoon sun doesn’t heat up your kitchen all day when it’s time to cook dinner. The Elements of Wood, Fire and Earth all create a working partnership. It’s best to keep the stove and the fridge apart if possible … as you can see in the sample picture here, for the Trine of the fridge, sink and oven. This would be ideal from a Feng Shui perspective so that the elements are not right next to each other. The stove, considered fire, and the fridge, considered water, should be separate if possible.

If this is not the case in your home … place a green object such as an area rug or plant in between the two with the intention of balance. The green colors work as a solution to mitigate the two elements of fire and water, who don’t get along, with both their friend, wood.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and where most people gather. If possible try not to have your back to the door when facing the stove. If this happens, a mirror over the stove to see behind you is best and also doubles your money by reflecting the burners.

Your personalized BaZi, Four Pillars, Chart and Door Direction personalize the space for the family living there and give me the information I need to create the right energetic home for you.

The above are some overall things you can consider with the Kitchen space.


DINING ROOM

Does this look like a Yang or Yin Dining room? It’s Yin 🎋

The darker colors and circular table & rug, gather people closer and create a more intimate setting.

Yes the colors are bright and might not be everyone’s taste but this makes for a nice, small dinner party environment where you can get to know each other better. Using the chandelier and an area rug to gather the Chi in one place around the dining room table. Area rugs are a great way to define a space for small or large living areas. By putting an area rug in each area of the home for example dining room living room etc. you get to create boundaries of space where there may not have been any especially for tile and wood flooring.

If you want to create a more Yang dining room you can use larger more rectangular tables with lighter, brighter wall colors. Open the space up to create a more celebratory, party atmosphere … if those are your intentions with the dining room.

Everyone is unique and different and their space should reflect those personalities as well as the rooms within that home.

Your personalized BaZi, Four Pillars, Chart and Door Direction personalize the space for the family living there and give me the information I need to create the right energetic home for you.

The above are some overall things you can consider with the Dining Room space.


BEDROOMS

Bedrooms are for rest and re-energizing your Chi after a long day, so these rooms are best suited to be as Yin and quiet as possible. If a TV has to be in the bedroom, use an Armoire with closed doors to hide it, or use other creative ideas for making it not predominate in the room, or the first thing you see when entering the room.

For the main bedroom, this is the place where relationships flourish, so keep romance and balance happening here the most. Make sure that both sides of the bed have matching/balanced nightstands and lamps, as well as a balanced amount of pillows or personal items on each side when possible. This creates balance between you and your mate and keeps the communication flowing to nurture the relationship.

If there is any work out equipment or home offices in your bedroom, get them out of the master bedroom when possible, or create a hidden area for them behind Sochi Screens, or choose a creative way to obscure from view. Not making these corrections or cures in the bedroom can create conflicts of interest between relationships and other things going on in your life. You can see this visually in the room when there are no boundaries.

Modern day homes have bigger and bigger main bedrooms, yet this can create Yang energy especially if you add mirrors, and high ceilings in over-sized rooms. If that is the case, Yin it up with darker paint tones and colors, more lamp/intimate lighting and creative ways to add romance and connection.

Mirrors should not be placed where they reflect the image of your body as you sleep. The thought behind this is, it can startle you in the night if you awake to see your image in the mirror, and it creates even more Yang energy where the Yin is needed. I have no mirrors in my bedroom; only the connecting bathroom where I make sure the door is closed at night when I sleep, and certainly the toilet lid is closed!!… You don’t want to mix the energy of the bathroom, which is wast discarded, with the revitalizing Chi that is working to restore your energy while you sleep.

Your personalized BaZi, Four Pillars, Chart and Door Direction personalize the space for the family living there and give me the information I need to create the right energetic home for you.

The above are some overall things you can consider with the Bedroom space.


HOME OFFICES

Home offices are getting more popular as more people tend to work from home these days. Make sure your back is not to the door of your home office. The best place you can have your back is to a command position wall, where you can see the window and the door from where you are seated and have your back to Mountain Energy, a wall. If that is not possible, hang a mirror on the far wall across from you, so that you know when people are approaching the door. If you are able to position your desk so you can see out your window, make sure that if there is a lot going on outside, that you are not easily distracted should you need to concentrate more on your work.

Keep clutter to a minimum, especially your desk at the end of each day. Make sure everything has its place, incorporating baskets and other items to help organize everything. If having your Home Office in your bedroom is the only place you can, then you must do a bit extra each day to really put away things that will cause you to work or think about work when you are trying to get rest.

Your personalized BaZi, Four Pillars, Chart and Door Direction personalize the space for the family living there and give me the information I need to create the right energetic home/office for you.

Underworld Goddess Meng Po

In China, the underworld Goddess Meng Po brews the Bittersweet Tea/Broth of Oblivion.

Mèng Po ~ Chinese Goddess of Reincarnation 🎋 Feng Shui by Jacqueline Albert Pepper

Meng Po (Chinese: 孟婆; pinyin: Mèng Pó; lit. ‘Old Lady Meng’):
Goddess of forgetfulness in Chinese mythology, who serves soup on the Bridge of Forgetfulness or Nai He Bridge (奈何桥). This soup wipes the memory of the person so they can reincarnate into the next life without the burdens of the previous life. She awaits the dead souls at the entrance of the 9th round (Fengdu).
