Feng Shui need not be ornate nor involve Asian-style decoration if that is not your aesthetic. But yes, it does align with the old style Puritan dictate of cleanliness being next to godliness.
Tim Ferriss has a new podcast up with Marie Kondo – the Japanese and Sun/Neptune Capricorn conjunct cleaning guru.
I love her latest quote: “tidying orders the mind while cleaning purifies it.” I think Kondo epitomizes haute Neptune in Capricorn energy.
And as someone with Mars in Virgo, i fell avidly upon her work the moment i discovered it. It was not so much that it felt drastically new to me – i had already been converted years ago by the Karen Kingston Clear Your Clutter book. Kondo just took it to a new level of hyper-Zen.
Is it still worth worrying about having a dazzling, clutter-free cutlery drawer or gleaming laundry shelves with zero grunge when some of the news and media flow is beginning to resemble a J.G. Ballard dystopian novel or your schedule is so insane that it is only do-able if you clone yourself?
Well, yes. It is an environment within your control, the energy of which you can uplift at Warp Speed. With just a duster and an industrial strength garbage bag – no wands or fussy rituals require. The house, apartment or even just your bedroom IS the spell. Add in some witchy-goo-goo measures like a line of salt across the threshold or essential oils that you can mop the floor with and voila – House Witched.
Feng Shui is a whole other level again. I don’t personally like the basic Ba Gua method – where there are different sectors of the house according to a predetermined map. I love so-called Flying Star Feng Shui which is complex, super-esoteric and highly effective. It actually works off the planets – albeit with Chinese names – and has to be done individually for each house, like a birth chart. It is, in my opinion, one of the most swift to manifest magical things that you can do – it is too lengthy to explain how it works here but think a la the Five Element Cycle of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, only applied to your space.
So i am delighted to announce that the Flash Feng Shui Consult is now available again in the Shop – these are done by my Feng Shui “Master” – Feng Shui Mistress sounds weird, I agree – and include a floor plan + very practical suggestions to maximize your house vibe (Qi) for better flow of prosperity + relationships and health. Have a look if you are interested or get into some Kondo fever – the Sun into Taurus any minute is a forward echo of Uranus into Taurus in May 2018 – who couldn’t use a little house witching and re-grounding?
