I receive so many questions about the timing of the placement of the annual feng shui cures, so I thought to address this question because I know you might have it too!
We all know about the Chinese New Year, which is a 15-day celebration that starts on the second New Moon of the New Year. in 2021, the Chinese New Year is on February 12th.
There is also the Solar New Year, which is on February 4, 2021. As with many things in feng shui, there are different opinions between consultants as to the best timing of the feng shui cures — is it on Lunar New Year or is it on Solar New Year?
The best way to go is to place at least one cure — with a strong intent — on the Lunar New Year, as well as to find the best timing for it, which is usually between 11 am and 1 pm. This would be your major feng shui cure, in terms of the area you want to improve and focus on more, as well as what you want to attract, change, etc.
Then you can schedule a few more sessions between February 4th and February 12th, 2021 to place the rest of the cures.
Here’s the best way to go about it in order to limit stress and attract maximum good energy. (Trying to create good feng shui in your home while feeling the pressure of having it done right and quick is NOT good feng shui, please know that.)
So, here are a few basic steps to help the process go smooth and well:
1. Study the annual feng shui tips for each bagua area and define what is needed in your specific home.
2. Make a list of the needed feng shui cures – do you need to buy new ones or can you reuse the ones you have? If you decide to reuse them, be sure to cleanse and activate your cures.
3. Create a plan as to when you will implement the changes and be specific with its timing. Best not to place the annual cures after the sunset, follow the best timing stated above.
4. Schedule a few sessions, you do not need to do it all in one session. Be intentional about this process, do not rush, be clear with your intent for each specific feng shui cure.
5. Be sure to clear the energy in your space before placing the annual cures.
6. Do not be afraid to experiment and see which decor elements work best as specific cures in specific areas this year. Move things around a bit and see how they all communicate. You want a sense of harmony between all the annual and the permanent feng shui cures.
7. Try to have them all in place by the Solar New Year, which is February 4th.
8. Do not be afraid to make minor adjustments at any time during the year. This especially applies to your saltwater cure — if it becomes “energetically exhausted”, remove and change it promptly.
Now, here what is important to understand — it is never too late to implement the annual feng shui cures, so if it is April or June when you are reading this and decide to implement it, by all means, go for it, your house will thank you!
At the deepest level, physical time IS an illusion and your intent and inner power can create incredible change, much more than the specific timing. Still, if you can combine both — the good timing and the power of your intent — you can literally start manifesting miracles.
