2014 Feng Shui Tips for the Chinese Zodiac Sign of Rat

 Is your birth year represented by the Rat symbol in Chinese astrology? Are you curious about what's in store for you in 2014? Let's have a quick look at how feng shui can improve your overall luck in the year of the Wood Horse.

Be sure your zodiac sign is actually a Rat, as Chinese New Year starts on a different day each year (and never on January 1). It is also helpful to know your birth feng shui element. Check your Chinese zodiac sign and element.

I will start with a word of caution first. The feng shui tips given here should be used with a discriminating eye as they are based on general predictions for your Chinese zodiac sign.

There is definitely much more to every human being that just the symbology of the year the person is born. If you are familiar with astrology, you know that even several minutes make a big difference in a person's birth chart.

Still, exploring these feng shui tips will definitely help improve your energy and make you more aware of the potential the Wood Horse year might have for you.

OVERALL: Generally, the Wood Horse energy of 2014 is considered to be a bit challenging for the Rat. Yes, the same was true last year, but you know things will change in the future; they always do! 2014 can still be a good year for you if you develop patience and be careful not to exhaust your energy. This especially applies to Water element Rats.

WEALTH & CAREER: You might have many opportunities in your career, but you will have to act fast. At the same time, you have to be very careful not to burn your energy, as this year will present you with many clashing energy scenarios, especially at work. To strengthen career luck in 2014, Rat people can look into feng shui career success tips and cures and choose ones that work best with your birth element. Money-wise, caution and alertness is advised.

LOVE: 2014 can be a bit challenging in the area of love relationships, too. The same clashing energy can be experienced as arguments, hot temper, etc, so staying calm and not looking for major changes is advised. Use feng shui love cures in your bedroom or your living room. Not taking a love relationship for granted and paying attention to your close friends, as well as keeping your temper under control will help smooth the 2014 love energy rhythms.

HEALTH: In 2014 Rat people will continue to experience volatility in their personal energy levels. A good advice is to follow health feng shui tips and bring health feng shui decor cures, such as the Medicine Buddha, or a Wu Lou for calming, healthy energy. Alternatively, look for strong, vibrant art images with potent energy that strengthen your personal energy; images you feel attracted to, be it mountain tops, forests or open vistas.

PERSONAL FENG SHUI: You can also look into good feng shui jewelry, be it with crystals and stones that work best for you (check the feng shui properties of crystals), or jewelry that employs various auspicious classical feng shui symbols, such as Pi Yao, the Dzi beads, Double Happiness or an amulet with your own Chinese zodiac sign.

Know when and how to take the time off, so that your personal energy is replenished and rejuvenated. Do not forget to take good care of your feng shui health trinity at home and enjoy a beautiful and successful 2014!
