I am a huge Feng Shui person. I decorate my house , as well as I can, following the teachings of Angi Ma Wong. To me she is the best.
So, this year is the year of the snake. It starts Feb 10th. The Grand Duke is in the SE (southeast), the 5 Yellows is in the SW (southwest) and the 3 Killings is in the East.
On Feb 10th I will be placing something metal in the southeast corner of our house, the southwest corner is getting a brass pagado wind chime and the dragon tortise will go in the east corner.
My parents were big Feng Shui people before it was popular here in the U.S. so it is not surprising that I am also :)
If you are wondering what this does, it wards off all bad things and makes your home in harmony with life. You could call our house the Harmony Hut, lol.
