‘Tis the season of New Beginnings in Feng Shui, when the earth starts its cycle of rebirth.
Springtime brings changing weather and nourishing rainstorms, which you can see in the I Ching symbol for Thunder in the New Beginnings area of the Bagua map.
As newly planted seedlings break through and trees and shrubs brighten the lengthening days with their soft greenery, it’s also time for you to to attend to your own garden.
Indoors or out, now’s the time to
- Toss out weak and dead plants, replacing them with the great life-force energy of healthy new ones.
- Let go of dried flower arrangements and sculptural branches that have dried out over the winter.
- Refresh or completely replace your room scents and potpourri (dried flower petals = a Feng Shui no-no).
- Don’t have a green thumb? Get a beautiful artificial flower arrangement, or hang a small picture of healthy plants in your New Beginnings sector.
