For those who believe in reaping the good fengshui to start the new year and to ensure good vibes throughout the year, below is a chart of the Auspicious or best days to start work during or after the Chinese New Year. (Click on image to enlarge.)
The Year of the Water Dragon will not have the Fire element in the fengshui Bazi Chart so red is needed to provide that fire to balance out the forces of the elements in which there are five: Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire.
For a year to be a good year, the Bazi Chart must have all the five elements present. Fire is missing next year. To take a pitch from Fengshui Master, Lilian Too, through Foong's post..
Since fire is missing from the chart, Lillian Too suggested that we counter it by wearing more red colour (red indicates fire) clothes this year and switching on the lights and keeping our houses bright. Do not wear black, unless you match it with something bright and for the ladies, do not carry black wallets.
So yes, the best colour for 2012 is red. Red curtains and red cushions are good. Taking it one step further - why not paint your house and car red too? LOL!
Foong who attended Lilian Too's Fengshui talk in January 1, has some great tips on the do's and dont's for next year and an easy-to-understand explanation of the Bazi Chart. Also shared are what events that Lilian Too sees from the Bazi Chart. Interesting stuff! Visit Foong's blog to find out and for Fengshui tips for the Year of the Dragon.
