This month may feel a little more challenging than last month for some of us due to the feng shui energy combination for the month and the year. The feng shui energy and locations for November are shown in the ba gua on the left.
The guas (or squares) that will affect you the most are those that are tied to your Personal Best Directions, the one where your bedroom is located, the one where your office is located and the one where your main door is located.
As you can see the challenging guas outnumber the beneficial guas this month. But that's yin and yang for you. Some months will be more yin and others will be more yang. This happens to be a yin month.
If you draw an outline of your office or home floor plan and then put a tic-tac-toe symbol over it you will have the bagua for your building. (There's actually a little more to it than this but in general this will work for you.) Once you have this you can label the directions so you know which energy will affect the different guas of your office or home.
The easiest way to activate the positive guas is to keep these areas busy. Have the kids play here, hold meetings in this area of your office and if your front door is in a positive gua that will stir up the energy, too.
You can reduce the effects of the negative guas by keeping these areas quite. If possible, don't use these areas at all because the more activity you have here the more you will stir up the energy that will create the challenges you see here.
For example, if your main door is in the East try to use it as much as possible this month to attract more abundance to your business or career. If your front door is in the Southeast it's better if you use a different door to come and go from your home or business.
Another way to activate the beneficial guas and cure the negative ones is to place your feng shui activations and cures. You can get these each month in my Time Feng Shui for 2008 subscription.
