How warm is your fire?
With the festival of lights around the corner, it is only logical to discuss the relevance of “Fire” in Feng Shui. Most of us are well aware that all forms of Chinese Metaphysics are governed by the interplay of the five elements – water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. While each element has its own unique feature and importance, they follow a productive, controlling and weakening cycle.
Where is this fire element and how does it affect you?
The fire element is represented numerically by #9 and is always located in the south sector of a property. It is associated with passion, warmth, and happiness. It is also preferential having higher ground like a mountain in the south sector if possible. Luckily for us, Hong Kong has lovely lush mountains all around.
A property with a missing south sector may face issues with their middle daughter, health concerns related to eyes and heart. Occupants are likely to have a general feeling of dissatisfaction and lack of creativity.
Is it possible to have fire in the birth chart?
Yes! The snake and the horse zodiac animals carry pure fire energy. In 2019, the horse is the #1 ranking animal sign promising a year of abundance filled with opportunities to showcase leadership skills. Now is a good time to invest in property for the horse people.
The snake on the other hand clashes with the pig (year animal). So some change is inevitable, especially in the month of November. It is a good time to find mentors to support you in your endeavors.
