Your Feng Shui Advice for October 2013
SHUI ADVICE

According to Feng Shui's floral pantheon, chrysanthemums are often considered one of the luckiest flowers around. What makes these colorful flowers so fortunate? Chrysanthemums are said to hold such strong yang energy that they practically pull good fortune into one's life! They signify an easy existence and are believed to further the life of anything you'd like to see last a long time -- be it love, success, or, of course, luck!

According to Western Feng Shui, there's one day each year when placing a chrysanthemum in the "fame" area of your home (the center of your home's rear wall) will unfailingly bring immediate recognition and reward. Do this simple deed on October 9 and watch as your reputation rockets and your future visions become your current reality!

SHUI FASHION

Fashion Feng Shui suggests that you should always try to take a cue from nature when looking for colors that will inspire you and bring a sense of calm, cool, and collected.

Look all around this October. Which colors are most prevalent outside right now? Here in the Northern Hemisphere, there are warm orange and golden hues almost everywhere. These, therefore, are considered the best colors to wear to allow yourself to bring out your very best -- and keep you acclimated to the ever-changing seasonal environment!

SHUI HEALTH

They say that eating an apple a day helps keep the doctor away. I don't know about that, but I do know that it's apple-picking time in the northeastern United States!

So, I thought I'd share a bit of apple lore that comes from the Feng Shui pantheon. According to this tradition, the apple invites romance, social interaction, recognition, luck, and peace. In fact, it's pronounced as "peace fruit" in Chinese and is considered the main ingredient for a peace-filled family life. This is why it's believed that keeping a bowl of apples on the kitchen and/or dining room table will bring harmony and balance to your home environment.

I suspect these suggestions will keep the doctor away as well. Any way you slice it, the astonishing apple is good for your health!

SHUI RECIPE

Since October is typically when the weather really begins to cool down in many places, why not brew up a hearty stew to fit the changing season?

BEEF AND BEER STEW
(Serves 6)

Ingredients:
2 pounds of lean chuck beef, diced into one-inch cubes
12 ounces of beer
2 cups of carrots, julienned

2 cups of onions, sliced thinly
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced thinly
1 cup of parsnips, diced into half-inch cubes
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon of crushed caraway seeds
1/4 teaspoon of white pepper
3 slices of rye bread, toasted and made into bread crumbs

1. Combine beer, caraway seeds, nutmeg, and pepper in a slow cooker. Add beef, garlic, onions, and parsnips.

2. Allow all ingredients in the slow cooker to marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Remove in the morning and allow all ingredients to return to room temperature.

3. Once at room temperature, return all ingredients to the heat, adding enough beer to just barely cover the surface.

4. Cook over high heat for three hours, then over low heat for another seven hours. Stir in bread crumbs, then cook for one more hour. Serve and enjoy!

SHUI TRAVEL

If you'll be hitting the road soon, here's a little Feng Shui travel secret that could make fortune and luck two of your most trusted companions anytime you're away from home!

This tradition dictates that, should you find yourself checking into overnight accommodation, you should request a room with lucky number vibrations attached. Indeed, this tradition suggests that numbers emit a vital essence or life force that can attract both good and bad experiences, so make sure your room only invites the former -- and foregoes the latter.

The most positive numbers are one, six, eight, and nine. Any of these, either alone or in some combined form, will bring you auspicious experiences, easy travels, and great luck!

In this case, when your number's up, it's a good thing -- especially if it's one, six, eight, or nine!

SHUI RANDOM

According to Feng Shui, autumn is the season of the metal element. Metal signifies contraction -- a consolidation of seasonal energies -- as well as the fall harvest and the sense of completion it brings. Gardens, of course, are now showing signs of shutting down for the season as plants and trees begin their annual hibernation.

Recognize and activate metal's energy by placing anything made of it in your home's "children/creativity" area. You'll then symbolically strengthen your own powers of discernment, planning, and assessment, which in turn will allow you to consolidate your gains during the coming winter!
