Feng Shui Success Cure for 2019: The Hourglass


Do you want success in 2019?

My #1 cure suggestion for the year is an hourglass.

There is so many opportunities for making money and connections this year but the biggest obstacle is letting time pass without taking action. You are busy and have a long list of things to do but if you don’t put what’s important to you at the top of the list then days, weeks, and months just go by without progress and without you reaching your goals.

2019 is the Year of the Earth Pig

In a Pig year, people want to sit on the sofa and binge watch Netflix and then there’s the energy of the Yin Earth element of stillness and waiting. An hourglass holds sand (Yin Earth) and as you watch the sand go through the narrow part of the hourglass one grain at a time you’re reminded to do one thing at a time. One action follows another and then another and another. This is what will bring success in 2019.

Place your hourglass where you need to be reminded to take action. This might be next to the TV remote control or wherever in the house you’re tempted to avoid doing the important things in your life.

Top Five Favorite Feng Shui Wealth Remedies

After several decades of teaching Feng Shui students and helping thousands of clients here’s a list of my favorite Feng Shui remedies for personal finance, career and wealth.

#5 – Sweeping the Porch – As I’ve said many times, your front door is the entry point for all new energy whether you use that door or not. So it’s a good idea to maintain your front entrance. Sweep your porch by sweeping from the door outwards. While you do this, visualize negative or stale energy being swept out of the house. Shake out your welcome mat or if your welcome mat is old and dirty consider replacing it. When the porch is clean, visualize new opportunities for money and career coming to you.

If you don’t have a porch because your apartment has an hallway entrance then you can stimulate the energy by cleaning the door itself. Also, if your apartment complex allows it, consider hanging a wreath or other decoration on the door.

Lovely Front Porch

#4 – Moving a Cure – Cures work best when they are fresh and new. But you don’t have to constantly be buying new cures. You can refresh the ones you have by taking the item down, dusting or cleaning it and putting it in a new spot.

I had a client who had a pair of Lucky Money Fish (see #3) and she hung it by her front door. The clients poured in almost to the point of overwhelmed. But a month later, she called me and said, “it’s not working anymore”. This is to be expected. We become accustomed to a shift in energy very quickly. We adapt. “No problem”, I said. And I had her move the cure to the Wealth area of her home and payments started rolling in again. A month later I checked in with her and again the positive energy seemed to be fading. I advised her to place the cure again at her front door. Moving a good cure will stimulate the energy.

#3 – Lucky Money Fish – This is one of my favorite cures for bringing abundance. In Chinese the word for “abundance” sounds like the word for “fish”. This is what connects these two words. Lucky Money Fish are a symbol of “having so much money you have left over money”. They are always displayed in pairs and can be placed near the front door, in the office or in the Wealth area of the home.

Lucky Money Fish

#2 – Coins on the Window Sill – Coins are a universal symbol of wealth. They activate the principle of “like attracts like”. Place stacks of coins on your window sill in your kitchen or home office. For an added bonus, notice when the cat knocks the coins on the floor, that’s a message to pay attention to your finances or do some marketing for new clients. Here’s a video about Chinese Coins in Feng Shui. https://youtu.be/XQ2shyG2l08

#1 – The Lucky Money Cat with Your List of Goals Underneath – For many of my clients this has been one of the most effective remedies for bringing in career opportunities and money. Using the typical Lucky Money Cat (with or without moving arm) place a list of your goals underneath the cat. Check your goals about once a week, removing goals that have been achieved and adding new goals as they come up (to a maximum of five goals at a time). He’s a Money Cat so goals should be around finance, career and business. Here’s a video about the Lucky Money Cat. https://youtu.be/VHIUxqIeX50

Moon Signs: 4 reasons why you want to know yours

Your Moon tells you more about yourself than your Sun sign: In fact, your Moon sign describes your needs and wants more deeply than any other single point in your chart.

Here are four reasons why knowing your Moon sign is so very helpful… almost crucial.

Moon Phases

  1. Your Moon sign describes what makes you feel safe, what brings you comfort, how you connect with others and what makes you happy. Your Moon tells you how you like to “nest”, what makes a place feel like home. The Moon describes your upbringing and the connection you have to your past. It’s key to discovering the skills and blocks you carry from your childhood.
  2. Your Moon predicts how things will go. Your Moon sign is a better predictor of how things will go on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. If you read your daily horoscope, try reading your Moon sign instead of the typical Sun sign. You’ll find not only the predictions will be more accurate, but the information will be more helpful to your growth and happiness.
  3. Your Moon motivates you to take action. Your Moon sign is often the point of motivation as it’s the center of fight or flight. While Mars is the planet of action it’s often an emotional need, the Moon, that gets us off the sofa. The Moon points us to what we need and away from things that we perceive bring pain. Understanding your Moon and how it’s guiding you will help you stop banging into blocks. The Moon tells you instead, how to move forward in your life with ease.
  4. Your Moon helps you find compatibility. Your Moon sign is the main factor in connecting with another. While you may not know the other person’s Moon sign, if you know your own Moon then you will be able to see how compatible your Moon sign is (your needs) with their Sun sign (their ego or sense of self). Have you been in a relationship before where your needs weren’t met? This is often caused by a lack of understanding of how your Moon and their Sun are interacting. Once you have this information you can work with the energies to help bridge the gap between what they want and what you need.

When Your Feng Shui Prosperity Cure Falls on the Floor

I opened the front door and there it was on the floor – my coin string. The string of Chinese coins strung together with a bright red cord, topped with an intricate knot was now prostrate on the floor. The loop at the top didn’t fit around the door knob and so I had hung the coin string with a rubber band. The band had broke and it lay dried and torn on the floor along with my prosperity cure.

Feng Shui Coin String

This is a sign.

Yes, rubber bands get old and they break. But also energy cures get weaker and need to be reenergized every once in a while. When something happens a Feng Shui prosperity cure, one you’ve placed specifically to attract money, it’s time to take action.

It doesn’t matter what caused the cure to fall. The cat could have been playing with it and knocked it off the door knob. Or the child of a friend could have removed it when they were over visiting. Or sometimes the fairies just take things. It’s not important HOW it happened but that it happened.

Chinese Feng Shui Coin String

It’s on the floor now to get our attention.

Now is the time to revive the prosperity energy in the house. Feng Shui cures are like an acupuncturist’s needles, they stimulate the flow of energy. But in our homes, neighborhoods, and towns energy can move, shift or dwindle.

If this happens to you and the item is undamaged (which in this case it is, just needs a new rubber band) then clear the item by smudging. (Here’s my website on how to smudge if you want information).

Then set your intention. Feng Shui cures are not magical on their own. They trigger energies within us to attract what we want. So we set our intention by hanging coin strings and stating to the Universe what we want.

If the cure falls several times over a short period of time then I know there’s a bigger issue at hand. I have a client who was lighting a candle in her wealth corner every day for prosperity but over the course of a week her husband blew out the candle one day, and then because he was seen doing it, the kids copied him and blew out the candle whenever they saw it lit. This tied in directly to my client’s prosperity issue. She wants to bring more money into the household but is feeling stressed about leaving the kids and husband to fend for themselves. She realized her best solution is to find a work-at-home opportunity. And it didn’t take her long. Next week she’s starting to do marketing for a small local restaurant chain and will be working almost entirely at home via video conference.

Of course a cure doesn’t have to fall to the ground to need your TLC. If you’ve had a cure up for many months, if it’s covered in dust, it probably needs a reboot. Clean it, clear it and set the intention.

Let me know if you’ve had some interesting experiences with your Feng Shui cures. Leave me a message in the comment section below.

My Favorite Productivity Tool: Keys-To-Go by Logitech

I’m sitting outside a local Coffee Bean doing some writing. I do this a lot. I find coffee shops easy to write in. There’s just enough noise but none of the distractions I find at home like “I wonder if it’s possible to make grain-free coconut flour pancakes”. It is. And quite delicious but that doesn’t help me get writing done.

One tool that has increased my writing productivity is the Keys-To-Go keyboard by Logitech.

Keys-To-Go Keyboard by Logitech

This is one of the best tech purchases I’ve made the last few years. This is a well-spaced, full-size keyboard that connects to my phone through Bluetooth. The keys on this keyboard are spaced so perfectly that I have no trouble transitioning from my keyboard at home to this light-weight version a couple times a day. And typing on this keyboard feels great. There’s a satisfying squishiness and click that lets me know I’ve pressed the key.

Keys-To-Go Keyboard by Logitech side view

Now I never have to lug a laptop around (which mine is dinasour and weights about as much). The Keys-to-Go fits in my purse. The “skin” of the keyboard protects it from spills and I use a regular phone charger to charge it.

I never thought I would be one to write my books and blog on my phone. But now if I find I’m away from the office and between clients I can slip into a coffee shop and get a chapter or a blog post done. That’s amazingly helpful to me. Plus I’ve met so many people who’ve stopped to ask me about the keyboard.

For creative writing on my phone I use Gmail. At first I tried to use my regular word program for writing (mine is Open Office Writer) but that was too cumbersome on the phone. So I just write myself an email. Then at back in my office I transfer my text to my word program or add it to my manuscript already in progress.

I also use it to write emails and texts. If I have a long text answer to send to a client I pull out the keyboard. With a push of a button it instantly links to my phone.

The only complaint, if I was to have one, is the one I got doesn’t hold a charge for the month like many of the reviews said. When I first started using it I could end up at a coffee shop all ready to write and find I had a dead keyboard. But now I just charge it every day and I haven’t had any trouble with it since.

I know this isn’t my usual type of post but if you’ve found this information helpful or you would like to know other things I do to make it possible for me to put out two books a year plus have a full schedule of clients and classes please let me know in the comments below.

Why You May Not Be Like Your Sun Sign

Often when people find out I’m an Astrologer they treat me to a speech on how they are not like their sign.

Libras tell me they are happiest when they are out of a relationship, Geminis say they like to just listen and Capricorns want to stay home and take care of the kids.

There’s a reason for this.

We are not automatically our Sun Sign.

We are learning our Sun Sign.

Often times we read the meaning of our Sun Sign and it’s a whole list of things we don’t do. In fact depending on your age, you are likely to exhibit characteristics of the opposite sign. So Virgos demonstrate strong psychic ability like they are Pisces and Aquarians step up to lead like they are Leos.

Astrology Signs

As we get older and after many lessons we learn how to do our Sun Sign. We see the value in those aspects of ourselves. Over time Sagittarius natives begin to teach and travel. Cancer natives learn to cook and nurture themselves. Taurus natives settle down and start to get comfortable that they will always attract financial security. Scorpios embrace their power and begin to feel safe. Aries stops waiting and bravely take initiative.

So when you read the description of your sign and don’t feel it fits try reading the opposite sign. (See list below). Notice how much of the opposite sign you’re manifesting. Then go back and read your own sign. If you will embrace those qualities, the qualities of your Sun Sign, you will find it is a true path to happiness and success.

Opposite Signs

Aries – Libra

Taurus – Scorpio

Gemini – Sagittarius

Cancer – Capricorn

Leo – Aquarius

Virgo – Pisces

When an Eclipse Falls on Your Birthday (or really close to it).

About every six months we get the astrological big event – eclipses. Eclipses signal a time of change. What that change will be is based on where the eclipse falls in your chart. It can be anywhere from a small shift (like having an amazing realization) to complete upheaval in your life (loss of job, loss of relationship, loss of home, etc.). By far the biggest change comes when the eclipse hits your Sun.

How would you know if this eclipse (or any eclipse) is hitting your sun? It’s easy. If your birthday is five days before the eclipse or less or if your birthday is five days after the eclipse or less then you’ve been hit.

For example if the eclipse is on January 10 and you and all your friends birthdays fall between January 5 and January 15 you’re all getting hit. January 4 and January 16 birthdays – you’ve just been grazed.

Here’s a link to the dates of eclipses, scroll down to see the next set of eclipses: https://cafeastrology.com/eclipsessolarlunar.html

So you’re getting hit. Now what?

Within the next few months (or less) your life will dramatically change. The possibilities are:

  • a shift in a love relationship
  • a change in your finances
  • the loss of a vehicle
  • changing residences
  • having someone move in or move out
  • a change in relationship with an adult child
  • a change in your health
  • a divorce
  • starting a new relationship
  • credit card fraud
  • lawsuit
  • failing an important test
  • loss of job
  • fight with a close friend
  • resuming a bad habit or addiction

But eclipses, while bringing this dramatic change, also bring a gift. Most people look back a few months later and find they are much better off for having gone through the change.

You find:

  • your relationship is now stronger or you are now free to find a better relationship
  • you find new sources of income and support
  • you get a new vehicle or find they don’t need a vehicle at all
  • you move to a better place
  • the home is better for all when the person moved in or out
  • your relationship with your adult child is stronger
  • you start to really take care of your health
  • you complete the divorce and are now ready for a real love relationship
  • you now guard and protect your credit
  • you find you can fight a lawsuit
  • you learn how to study for tests
  • you find a better job
  • you either get a stronger relationship with your friend or you find a new friend
  • after the relapse back into addiction you emerge more determined and stronger

Yes, it’s a growth period. The benefits are all on the back end. As you’re going through it try to remember the eclipse will make you better. It’s a storm you’ll get through and once through you’ll know you are a better sailor.

For you more advanced students of Astrology: You can expect change if the eclipse squares or opposes your Sun (with a 5 degree orb). So based on the example of a January 10 eclipse in Capricorn, it would also affect Aries (April 5 to April 15), Cancer (July 5 to July 15) and Libra (October 5 to October 15).
