South 6, 6, 1: Patience and Perspective
Water Star 1 extinguishes the fire element energies of the south direction in 2012. This makes it difficult to get things done if you spend time in a south room. Whenever there is fire and water in the same
direction, one must be very patient. Effort is necessary to overcome conflicts and misunderstandings. Obstacles and troublesome issues may disrupt success. Stress from anger and disappointment that aggravates the
heart can cause psychological and cardiac problems.
Taking things in stride and appreciating everything as a lesson to learn from will keep things in perspective as you forge ahead. Those who stay focused on their goals and persevere in the south room will ultimately
meet success by the end of the year. If you are in a south bedroom, 2012 is a superb year to expand your knowledge or skill base. Taking classes or researching new ideas leads to solutions.
Nine Star Chart for 2012 - South & Southwest
Metal Star 6 promotes water Star 1. However, because Star 1 is out of cycle, its less desirable characteristics tend to be activated. This energy creates the prodigal middle-aged man. Middle-aged males using a south
door or room may be prone to spending money recklessly and engaging in questionable activities and sexual relationships that defeat or hurt him. He may be constantly on the move looking for ways to fill the void of
loneliness and low self-esteem he feels. Males in a south office or who own a business with a south door need to be aware of this potential behavior. A man who feels unstable does well to have a trustworthy friend or
mentor who watches out for him, guides him, and warns him to steer clear of inappropriate people.
Adjustments for the south room and office:
The wood element can ameliorate restless energies. Accomplish this by using blue and green colors in the south bedroom and office. Live plants and images of gardens or forests inspire growth and can help balance out
the impulse to indulge. If you get the urge to splurge, spend your money on meaningful gifts that appreciate the right people and strengthen your relationships. Take time to praise and reward those sleeping in the
south room this year to boost their self-esteem. This will help them avoid using poor judgment and engaging in destructive behavior. The
Chi Art created especially for adjusting the annual south energies is
"Secret to Stringing the Pearl".
This painting boosts wealth energies while releasing negative obstacles such as injury, sexual stress, gossip, and arguments.
Southwest 8, 4, 3: Take Time to Do it Right
The masculine wood Star 3 comes to the southwest in 2012 and defeats this direction’s inherent feminine earth energies. This creates fighting and conflicts - especially between males and females. Patience, forgiveness,
and compromise will help minimize the trials that can come to those who work in the southwest office or sleep in the southwest bedroom. Avoid entering through a southwest-facing door as it can bring people who take
advantage, direct blame, complain, or threaten to take legal action against you. It is important to make careful plans and get expert advice when it comes to making vital decisions. Progress can be made one step at a
time with teamwork, understanding, and encouragement.
Earth Star 8 is like a favorable mountain that supports success. However, because out-of-cycle Stars 3 and 4 are associated with wind and storms, getting to the top of the mountain feels like a rigorous climb in
challenging conditions. Nonetheless, persistence will prevail. The southwest provides an inherent energy of replanting and re-establishment. The initial stages of progress may be slow, but once solid plans take root it
is only a matter of time before success blooms. Businesses with a southwest door or office do well to lay proper groundwork, strategize, and double check paperwork, budget, and contracts.
Star 4 is associated with the eldest daughter, liver, arms, and legs. Females who sleep in the southwest room or enter through a southwest door may be prone to allergic reactions to drugs and toxins, skin rashes, or
injury to the arms and legs - especially if the southwest room is not compatible. The southwest direction is associated with the uterus and emotions. Be aware of mental health issues and risk of miscarriage.
Adjustments for the southwest room and office:
The Chi Art, "Prosperity Koi and Dragonfish" counteracts the negative struggles and fighting in the southwest room. Implement the fire element to bring balance by placing a red or burgundy area rug by the
southwest entry way or an accent lamp in the southwest room to keep it well lit. Ring a gong or bell daily to disperse negative energies. Place Chi Art, "Cooperation" in a southwest conference room or
office for benefits from teamwork. Placing rose quartz along with a pair of red stone turtles facing southwest in a southwest bedroom can enhance stable health and relationships. For health protection, place Chi Art,
"Path of Longevity" in your southwest bedroom.
