Feng shui, astrology and the new moon

Several years ago I was introduced to a really neat lady named Joni Patry.  Joni is a vedic astrologer (traditional East Indian astrology that looks at the planets from your Ascendant or moon position) which is different from western astrology (which looks at the planets from your sun sign).

Over the years Joni and I have kept in touch and in the course of our conversations about classical feng shui and vedic astrology she asked me if you could look at astrology in terms of feng shui.  At the time I was fascinated by the question and began looking at the various houses in astrology and how they could be compared to the feng shui ba gua.  The result was what I called ‘astro feng shui’ but I didn’t really know what to do with the information.

Then lo and behold about a year ago I came across an article by a woman named Simone Butler who practices western feng shui and western astrology and she had done exactly the same thing.  What was even more amazing is that she called it astro feng shui, too!  What I found interesting is that she used the new moon to activate different feng shui guas each month.  You can see her article here.

Because classical feng shui and vedic astrology are different than the western versions, the houses and corresponding guas (or directions) are a bit different, too, so my perspective is different than Simone’s.

Here are the astrological houses and the directions they’re tied to in based on traditional Chinese feng shui:

First house – This is the house that represents you personally and your physical characteristics.  In feng shui this is the east, which is the area of your roots and foundation.

Second house – This is the house of money you earn and is represented by the SE in feng shui, the area of wealth.

Third house – is tied to theater, art, drawing, writing, music and other creative endeavors as well as lower education.  All of these things belong in the west in feng shui, the area of creativity and children.

Fourth house – represents home, real estate, mother.  These are all things tied to the SW area of the feng shui ba gua.

Fifth house – This is the house of children, speculation and creativity and, like the 3rd house, is also part of the west.

Sixth house – health and habits which belong in the center gua.

Seventh house – relationships, marriage and partnerships all of which are represented by the SW in classical feng shui.

Eight house – change, wisdom and spiritual growth.  These are tied to the NE area of your home in feng shui.

Ninth house – Higher learning, spiritual gurus and teachers which are also represented by the NE.

Tenth house – is the house of career and fame which are represented by the north(career) and south (fame) areas of your home in feng shui.  When the new moon lands in the tenth house activate both of these directions.

Eleventh house – represents friends, groups and organizations as well as money that comes in large amounts.  All of these things are represented by the NW area of the ba gua.

Twelfth house – represents foreigners and foreign travel, outer space and spiritual liberation.  This house is also tied to the NW in feng shui.

If you know your personal vedic houses you may want to see which house the new moon lands in and feng shui that area of your home on the day of the new moon.  You can find your vedic chart and the sign of the new moon each month on Joni’s website here: www.galacticcenter.org.

If you prefer western astrology and feng shui then use Simone’s recommendations.  Either way I think you’ll like the results.

Good luck!
