What’s inside you is reflected in what’s outside you -- this is one of the main principles of Feng Shui. If you’re feeling unbalanced emotionally, take a look around your home or workspace. Is it as chaotic as you feel? When the pressures of life leave you feeling out of control, organizing a junk drawer or de-cluttering your wardrobe actually helps boost self-esteem. You can quickly jumpstart a happier mind by creating calm in the space around you.
Some Moon-sign days are better-suited than others for clearing clutter, redecorating, improving work prospects, organizing or bonding with loved ones. Read on and find out when to make your move toward a better mood!
De-cluttering and Virgo
One of the biggest barriers to having a flowing life is having your space filled with old or broken objects. If you can’t comfortably move around your work or living space, how can the energy flow smoothly? The best Moon-sign day for streamlining your space is when the Moon is in Virgo. Virgo likes to keep things organized, so it’s easier to get rid of things on these days.
Work and Virgo/Scorpio/Capricorn
When your job is your major stress, rearranging your workspace will shift the energy. Remove things you don’t need. Bring in new objects so that the environment better reflects you and your goals. Changing the entire layout is also a powerful way to realign the energy. The best Moon-sign days to re-energize your workspace are when the Moon is in Virgo, Scorpio or Capricorn.
Love and Taurus/Cancer/Libra/Pisces
When you’re having difficulties in romance, focus on your bedroom. New bed linens will help re-energize your love life. Clearing out your closet is also important. Pinks, reds and whites will help stimulate romantic energy.
If you’re stuck on an ex, make a memory box of your favorite times together and put it away -- outside the bedroom. Want to move your current relationship forward? Hang photos of you and your lover on the far right-hand wall of the bedroom (from the door). The best Moon-sign days to re-energize your love life are when the Moon is in Taurus, Cancer, Libra and Pisces.
Money and Taurus/Scorpio
If finances are your concern, focus on your kitchen. A clean oven is important as it’s a symbol of fire in the home, which helps generate energy and wealth. And make sure all the shelves in your refrigerator are easily accessible to keep your finances from getting stuck in a rut. Clearing out the pantry also helps. The best Moon-sign days for re-energizing your finances are Taurus and Scorpio.
Self Esteem and Taurus/Libra
Boost your self-esteem by organizing your bathroom on days when the Moon is in Taurus or Libra. These are also great Moon-sign days for redecorating your home. And to improve your social life, once you’ve reorganized your space by following some of the tips above, host drinks for friends on days when the Moon is in Gemini or Aquarius!
