Editors Letter – Eleventh Edition

Welcome to our thirteenth edition of Feng Shui Today – a free online magazine for the modern professional and avid enthusiast!  At FST we strive to create an  industry leading resource with unique, informative articles and practical advice from some of the brightest and most experienced Masters in the business.

Gong Xi Fa Cai and welcome to the Year of the Earth Dog! 

Symbolized by the Heavenly Stem of Wu or Yang Earth () sitting on top of the Earthly Branch of Xu or the Earth Dog (), both Earth elements support each other, suggesting a more harmonious year ahead.  However Yang Earth/Dog (戊 戌) is also a Commanding Pillar and this represents a tough person with a strong determination to succeed.  As such we may find that people are inclined to stick to their principles and refuse to compromise this year, which could lead to confrontation both on the world stage and in the home.

These strong Earth energies are also associated with mountains, rocks and boulders, which suggests the year ahead may contain obstacles to impede your progress, so determination and co-operation will be needed in order to reach your goals.  In addition the massive mountain image of the Yang Earth Dog relates to heavy pressure and brute force; so we are likely to see more natural disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, avalanches or even building collapse.  As such you may wish to think twice before traveling to areas with high risk mountainous or desert terrain and refrain from risky outdoor activities such as mountain climbing or bush walking.

Earth also represents the road and this could manifest as an increase in traffic related accidents; so be careful when driving and allow extra time to reach your destination, as road works and traffic incidents may create delays which could lead to frustration and even road rage from other motorists.  In other words try to keep your cool at all times this year!

On a more positive note, people are likely to focus on real estate, agriculture, environmental issues and religious or spiritual matters.  Therefore eco-friendly, sustainability, organic and Feng Shui could well be on the top of peoples lists this year as they think more seriously about the effect their lifestyles have on the environment and overall health of our planet.

So if you’d like to learn more about how to improve your prospects, then we’ve certainly got you covered with a great range of informative articles and practical advice from some of the brightest and most experienced Masters in the business!

And if that’s not enough then you are invited to join us in Okayama, Japan on December 1st & 2nd for the 15th Annual International Feng Shui Convention (IFSC).  Be sure to LIKE International Feng Shui Association on Facebook to stay up to date on all the details as they are released; including pre-convention classes and post-convention tours.  To find out more details about this exciting event or to purchase your ticket please visit www.fengshui-convention.com.

If you can’t wait until December to pursue your passion of Chinese Metaphysics or further your professional industry development, then the IFSA Australia Chapter are holding their conference in Melbourne, Australia on the 2nd & 3rd June.  Howard Choy is the Keynote Speaker for this event and will also lead a site visit to explore the Feng Shui of the Crown Casino.  Full details and tickets are available for this conference at www.intfsa.org.au.
