While waiting to actually buy the new home, I've been thinking of how to decorate it. Then I came across this book a friend of mine gave me a while back. Practical Feng Shui.
It's interesting. They suggest orientation of things in your home for balance of energy in your life. It doesn't all make sense but it's fun. I'm taking it all with a grain of salt.
One of the first things you need to know about yourself is your Chinese astrological sign. I'm a Wood Rabbit. I started to research about my sign and here's what I've found.
WOOD RABBIT Astrology Feb 14, 1915 to Feb 2, 1916 Feb 11, 1975 to Jan 30, 1976
Wood rabbit people are very quite and warm people. Power and solitude pull them on two sides. Luck always walks along with them but they never take rash decisions or unwisely steps. They are generally cautious, conservative and bright people. Wood rabbits always earn deep respect and admiration from others. They have a philosophical bend of mind and love to read and indulge in music and art. But as far as their finances go, they have to keep a very strict check on it. Wood rabbits are big spenders and hardly have anything saved for tougher days. As far as their love lives are concerned, they are very romantic and flatter their sweetheart with all types of gifts and surprises.

There is no particular big favorable star in your constellation except Taiyin star (good star) in 2008. Taiyin has one meaning of female, which means that you can get supports from female. So you will be beneficial from the help of nice female in your work. However, the Chi of this auspicious star is too insignificant to develop very well because it does not have any sustaining stars around it. Besides, Rabbit people have tortures from Taisui, which will bring you villain and cause troubles and entanglements on your relationship. Insomnia, anxiety and bad temper happen to you from time to time. Relax yourself and learn how to get rid of pressure. Carrying along a jade kuan yin pendant prevents you from tension and troublemakers around you.
