Year of the Fire Monkey

Oriental astrology encourages the use of many omens and portents to attract good fortune. Incorporating these into your environment is an integral part of using the Feng Shui of the year effectively. This will enhance luck, health, wealth and happiness. For example select the color of the year (royal purple, blue — violet tones) for meditation candles, home decor accents or attire and carry or wear the crystal (topaz). Include the flower, herb and tree in your garden or floral arrangements, incorporate the spice, drink and foods into your diet to further enhance well-being.
