On Shambhala Day/Losar/Eastern New Years generally:
In the Buddhist tradition, before the New Year comes…Don Season, the most dangerous 10 days of the year. Here’s how to survive.
The year of the Fire Rooster begins February 3, 2017.
It happens once every 60 years. The last time was in 1957.
The following energies in the eight directions, will be felt by occupants this year if you are: sleeping facing any of the directions described below, walking in and out of doors facing these directions, work facing these directions, your stove knobs face the direction indicated and you cook a lot, spending long periods of time sitting down facing these directions and if your home or business faces the indicated directions below.
In the East, the “8” energy visits, which is amazing for money, noble people, honor, loyalty, good behavior, wealth and accumulation of assets. If you have a front door that faces this direction or another heavily used door, or facing this direction while working and/or sleeping, it’ll be a fantastic year for money!
In the Northeast, the “4” energy visits, indicating travel, romance, publicity and recognition in business, book writing, publishing success, and creativity. If you’re sleeping to this direction, face this direction while working and/or have a front door or frequently used door that faces the Northeast, it can be a great year to meet someone new if you’re single or get married if you’re in a relationship.
The Southeast is visited by the “9” energy indicating great diplomacy, promotions, celebrations, weddings, spiritual development, mind power, and meditation. Great for jewelry designers, chefs, restaurant owners, interior designer and people in cosmetics.
In the Northwest, the “2” energy visits, indicating health issues with stomach, digestion, reproductive organs or mid section of the body. Also, it can indicate depression. If your home faces Northwest, and you moved in anytime after February of 2004, you can place brass bells on the front door to weaken this energy. The permanent energy of your home is great, utilizing brass bells should do the trick.
The North is visited by the “6” energy, indicating a year of working hard for your money, good for career and authority, and receiving needed support. This energy is benevolent.
The Southwest is being visited by the “7” energy indicating business deals falling through at the last minute, people owing you money and not paying you back, things being taken away, sweet talking men, people stealing ideas and/or intellectual property and can also literally mean people stealing from you. It’s not as strong because it’s located in the North. If you begin to experience any of the above consider moving your bed, using different doors or facing different directions to mitigate the negative effects.
The South is visited by the “5” energy, indicating trouble with money, relationships and health. It’s particularly strong in the South. If you’re utilizing this direction in the ways mentioned above and begin experiencing these issues, consider moving your bed, placing brass bells at the door, or changing directions that you face when working or sitting down.
In the West the annual “3″ energy visits, indicating gossiping, fighting, arguments and legal issues. If you’re utilizing this direction be mindful of your relationships with others and take caution when driving to avoid speeding/parking tickets. It’s not as strong in the West, but nonetheless, it’s something to be mindful of in case you’re experiencing any of the above.
Wishing you all the best Feng!
