What is an ideal home?
The outside land form of an ideal home, according to 八宅BaZhai School of Feng Shui (also known as 8 Mansions or 8 Houses), should consist of the following four celestial animals:
- Tortoise in the north or back of the house;
- Phoenix in the south or in front of the house;
- Dragon in the east or left hand side when looking out of your front door;
- Tiger in the west or right hand side when looking out of your front door.
A mountain, a hill or a solid wall behind for support, this represents the Tortoise. A hill, a mountain, or nowadays a neighboring building, on either side of the house for protection, these represent Dragon and Tiger respectively. And finally a Ming Tang (or bright hall); this is a wide open space, a pool of water, an island with some flowers and plants in the middle of the road, all these can represent the Phoenix.
So if your house is lucky to have all these four above mentioned formations, then it is considered an ideal home and you will enjoy good Feng Shui.

I was so glad yesterday when I completed my E-booklet of the 12 Chinese Animals as promised. Unfortunately, I had a hard time and got stuck trying to convert DOC to EXE… I was so upset because I assumed that it was as easy as saving a PPT file to EXE. You don't know the pain I went through not being a computer literate

Like my FREE calendar, except the pages are printable this time, you have to first download the file here, pay via PayPal and email me the password, and I will forward the corresponding password to open the file in return.
Yes, we have touched this subject before… but just recently, someone was questioning me and was rather preoccupied by the triangles in front of their house… unfortunately I can't show or upload the pictures here without prior permission .
Luckily, It turned out that these triangles are only triangular shapes that point upwards in design and in no way pointing to the opposite houses.
A good example is the trapeze twin towers I saw many years back when I was attending a Feng Shui seminar in Singapore. Both these towers portray definitely sharp pointing angles that can cut like a blade.
So may I reiterate that poison arrows are angles, corners, arrows pointing or directed towards your residence or office. A road that leads straight to your house and your front door, or a lamp post directly in front of your house (more deadly if it's in front of your entrance door) are considered poison arrows.
The energies of the poison arrows are known to be extremely inauspicious and can bring misfortune, illness, or any unpleasant happenings.
So what are the remedies if you find poison arrows pointing at your dwellings? No panic, there are many different techniques used to counter the killing energy. Example: for a straight road that lead to your front door, you can place two live green plants next to your door to absorb the negative energies rushing towards your house. If it is a triangular object pointing at your door, you can reduce the negativity by using any watery objects or color simply because water controls fire (triangles, triangular objects, or any fire related elements). Best is to double-check with a Feng Shui practitioner or consultant when you're in doubt.
It has taken me a bit longer than usual to post the third animal in line… as a matter of fact, I'm in the process of compiling an E-book titled "Simple and Easy Guide to the 12 Earthly Branches". It will contain about 25 printable pages. I hope to get it ready for distribution on April 19, 2010. Order it now for USD 16.00 and receive FREE Male/Female Gua Tables.
Among the 12 animals, dragons are the most fortunate and the most desired zodiac of all. Chinese couples are known to rush and to conceive in Dragon years, and hopefully will bring them a male child.
Dragon people receive a lot of honors and generally have high status in life. They have special charisma and downright lucky. They are confident, energetic, grandiose, egocentric, and possess leadership and optimism. They don’t sit around and wait for things to happen, they make them happen. You can count on their no-nonsense to take charge and to take risks, but they want things done their way. They are in a position to control others and like to gain a lot of wealth. They must have their last word, but quick to forgive. Sometimes they can become obstinate and overly proud of themselves that they suffer from isolation, and have few friends.
Who are they? They are male and female born after February 4 in 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012)
Who are their friends? Monkey, Rat, and Dragon.
Who are their competitors? Anyone born under Dog sign.
