Why McCain and Palin Will Take the White House


As promised in last week's newsletter I ran an analysis on the McCain/Palin ticket as soon as the announcement broke last week. From a feng shui perspective she looks like a good pick. She happens to be a West group person, which is yin (female energy), and McCain is East Group, which is yang (male energy). Since she's female and he's male it's already a good combo from a balance of energy standpoint.

The timing of picking her is excellent. Her Relationship direction is associated with long-term success this month and investing for the long-term. Additionally her Success direction for August is all about creating professional relationships. Because there is an annual Robbery Star on her Relationship direction and a Conflict Star on her Success direction for 2008 she probably wasn't the first choice, but the timing of the decision was definitely in her favor.

At the time of the election she will have the star associated with unexpected windfalls on her Relationship direction, which is positive. However, there is an Illness Star on her Success direction that month that combines with the annual Conflict Star. This creates what's known as "bullfight sha" or fighting energy. In a home it usually means conflict between mother and son but in a career it can mean conflict between a woman and a man. This may mean that she and Obama spend a good amount of time attacking each other up to and during the election. Another interesting combination for her in October is that the Career Star lands in her Wisdom direction which would indicate that she made a good career choice in agreeing to be VP and this will be beneficial to her.

When I look at McCain's personal feng shui directions he also has positive aspects. His Success direction has a double Fame Star for the month of September which indicate he will have an easier time getting public recognition and backing from the public and his party. His relationship has a double Disaster Star on it, though, which can mean that he has trouble with people on his team, within the Republican party or that some news about his relationships causes turmoil.

The energy for his directions at election time are excellent for Success as he has a double long-term abundance star there. Additionally, the Relationship star lands in his Relationship direction that month which can help him generate the support he needs to win the White House.

The negative energy affecting the Obama/Biden ticket seriously cripples their chances of winning particularly given the more positive feng shui energy that the McCain/Palin ticket holds. Now you know why they say, "Timing is everything." Either way our country is about to make history.

Obama Biden Not the Winning Ticket

Barack Obama announced that his running mate would be seasoned politician Joe Biden of Delaware. This choice, from a feng shui perspective, has put the nail in the coffin for Obama's chances of winning. Here's why:

As I mentioned in previous e-mails, in feng shui Obama is an East Group person. In general, this is a great year for East Group people but Obama's Success direction has a Disaster Star on it this year. Although his Relationship direction has a Fame Star on it, the Disaster energy is stronger so even though he is well received by the public (in a sense "famous") his bid for the presidency is overshadowed by the heavy energy of the Disaster Star.

Joe Biden, as it turns out, is also an East Group person. His Success direction is auspicous for 2008 but the months of September and October are particularly bad for him in two ways. During September Biden has a Double Disaster Star on his Health Direction. The last time this Double Disaster Star landed in his Health area was 1988 and it was that year that he had a brain aneurysm and almost died. Now, the Double Disaster Star on Health doesn't always mean death but it does usually bring a setback in health in some form.

September is also a bad month for Obama's career success as the Double Disaster Star lands in his Success direction next month. There are likely to be unexpected setbacks for him that weren't anticipated.

The following month, October, won't be much better and this October energy goes all the way through Nov. 4, the date of the election. In October the Disaster Star lands in Biden's Success direction which doesn't bode well for his career. On top of that, the Relationship Star lands in Obama's Success direction, which would normally be a good thing, but because the yearly Disaster Star is also in his Success direction for 2008 this combination means that his professional relationships (meaning his supporters, campaign team, or even the Democratic Party) aren't strong enough to carry him to success.

All of this feng shui energy gives the McCain team an opening to move ahead and capture the White House on Nov. 4. Once McCain picks his running mate I'll give you a feng shui outlook for them as well.

John Edwards' Affair


This week John Edwards dropped the bombshell that he has been lying about an affair he had over a year ago. Now everyone's waiting with baited breath to see if he's also the father of his mistress' baby, which he also denies.

It's not surprising that this news would land in the press this month because August is a triple whammy month on relationships for people with a Kua number 2. Here's what I mean, John Edwards' Relationship direction is Northwest. This month the annual Illness Star combines with the monthly Conflict Star resulting in what's known as "Bullfight Sha" which means major arguments and disagreements between males and females in the household.

Additionally, his Success direction holds the Relationship Star for the year and the Disaster Star for the month which translates to a dramatic unexpected upheaval in his personal and/or professional relationships which could directly affect his career. It's probably safe to say that any chance for a future bid for the Presidency is out of the picture.

And last but not least, his Health direction, which is also directly related to his sex life, holds the Conflict Star for the year and the Relationship Star for the month. This leads to more conflict in his relationships and happens to involve conflict related to his sex life.

This triple combination of conflict on his Relationship direction, upheaval related to his professional and personal relationships in his career and even more relationship conflict related to his sex life make August 2008 the opportune time for his past indiscretions to become too big to cover up any longer.

Another interesting side note is that the media reported John Edwards' affair began in October 2006. When I looked at his Relationship feng shui for that month I found that it was the perfect monthly and yearly combination for creating heartache for his wife, which it unfortunately has.

If your Personal Energy Number is a 2, like John Edwards', you may want to think about putting up your Time Feng Shui cures because the worst of what this month can bring to your relationships has just begun.

Olympics and 08.08.08

The opening ceremonies in Beijing take place this Friday, August 8, 2008 at 8:08 p.m. The number 8 is considered very auspicious in the Chinese culture and also in feng shui as well.

The number 8 is associated with Wealth in both China and in feng shui. Additionally, there are nine 20 year cycles in Time feng shui and we are currently in the cycle of time known as Period 8. Therefore, the number 8 is considered even more auspicious than in other cycles of time. Because of this the Chinese believe the date 08/08/08 and the time 8:08 p.m. is very lucky day and time to hold any kind of event.

It's also interesting that the Olympics are taking place in China because the number 8 is associated with the Northeast. If you look at a map of the world you'll see that the Northeast is occupied by China and Russia.

The number 8 is also about inner wisdom, education and spirituality. During this period of time (2004 until 2024) more and more people will be looking for ways to grow spiritually and will trust their instincts more than they have in the past.

And finally, the Earth is associated with the number 8 so it's not surprising that the "green" movement has taken off so easily these past couple of years. Although these same sentiments about taking better care of the Earth have been expressed for decades the general population wasn't interested until now -- during Period 8. This makes sense since we're now living in an "Earth" vibration.

I hope this information makes watching the Olympics a little more interesting for you! To find out more about feng shui go to my website at and check out the Articles section.
