FENG SHUI TIP FOR AIn taking a closer look at the energies associated with July, I noticed that this month is sometimes referred to as 'Unlucky Month For Weddings.' Uh oh! What's a July bride (and her groom) to do? According to the ancient principles of Feng Shui, there are five earthly elements that represent a perfect and happy union no matter when they are embraced. This philosophy says that in order to guarantee that your July nuptials proceed 'happily ever after,' the betrothed couple should be sure to include a symbol of each one of those earthly elements on the invitation list. Some examples include: Tree or wood symbols such as plants, paper, flowers or anything green are believed to bring big life to the wedding party. Fire symbols such as candles, sconces or anything red portends passion and adds a sensual sizzle to the affair. Earth or soil symbols like stones, sand, pebbles or anything brown can bring a sense of security. Metal symbols like candlesticks, utensils or anything white will leave everyone feeling filled with strength. Lastly, symbols of water, like images of streams or fountains, vases with water in them, or anything black brings a lasting sense of serenity and flow -- a must for any newlywed couple. In all my years advising couples on secret and successful Wedding Day Shui, I've never not seen these principles help to marry intentions of love everlasting with that very same thing! Even I believe strongly! I do, I do!
