water snake year

The year of the water snake begins February 4, 2013.

It happens once every 60 years! The last time was in 1953. The following energies in the eight directions will be felt by occupants, this year, if you are: sleeping to any of the directions described below, walking in and out of doors facing those directions, work facing those directions, your stove knobs face that direction and you cook a lot, spending long periods of time sitting down facing these directions and if your home or business faces that direction.

This year all the energies that are visiting in their respective directions are right at home so the effect will be doubly indicated. In the southeast the annual “4” energy visits, indicating lots of romance, traveling, moving, publicity, writing and publishing. In the south, the “9” energy visits, indicating, great diplomacy, promotions, celebrations, weddings, good for spiritual development, mind power, meditation; great for jewelry designers, chefs, restaurant owners, interior designer and people in cosmetics.

In the southwest, the “2” energy visits, indicating, health problems, particularly in the stomach, digestive organs, reproductive organs and mid-section of the body. It can also indicate people experiencing depression, difficulty in pregnancy, children being ill, skin problems and an overly aggressive females. If you’re utilizing this direction in the ways mentioned above and begin experiencing these issues, consider moving your bed, placing a metal wind chime at the door, or changing directions that you face when working or sitting down.

The West is 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, people stealing ideas and/or intellectual property and can also literally steal from you. 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 Northeast is visited by the “8” energy 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 and/or sleeping to this direction, it’ll be a fantastic year for money!

The North is visited by the “1” energy, indicating, intelligence, money, wisdom, academic success, sensuality, and success in writing. If you have a front door or sleeping to this direction it’ll be a good year for money too.

The Northwest is visited by the “6” energy, indicating, a year of working hard for your money, good for career and authority, and will receive the needed support. This energy is benevolent.

  1. […] A new year begins soon. So do many insurance plans. The deductible that annoyed you late last winter starts from zero all over again*, with perhaps a higher threshold than before. Your co-payments (per visit charges) may increase. Many of my patients have co-pays as high as $45, and it breaks my heart when someone who is in need tells me she can’t afford physical therapy. […]

    Huh? Not sure what to make of this…at all…my energy is confused.

    I really have no idea what she’s talking about. Maybe you have to be a Feng Shui master to understand…
