Can you believe that it's already February? For many, February is the month of love and romance.
For the Chinese, it's the beginning of the year. And with that comes the quest for ways to bring luck into their lives.
There are many ways to do that. One of the easiest though is by incorporating the 2019 lucky colors into your home!
According to the ancient pseudoscience and art of feng shui, colors are considered as illuminators.
Illuminators are helpful in enhancing the energy that surrounds you. They can help you become the best version of yourself this 2019 by creating balance and harmony in your life.
So if you’re thinking of buying a juju hat for the first time this year, might as well get one that will bring you luck aside from, well, its beautiful aesthetics.
Feng Shui’s Earth Element
The lucky colors for a particular year is closely associated with the year’s feng shui element.
There are 5 elements in feng shui: Earth, Wood, Metal, Fire, and Water. Each element provides a specific energetic quality that affects the energy of a home and its occupants.
Water and metal are both yin elements while wood and fire are yang elements. Earth is the element that represents the balance of both yin and yang.
For this post, we’re going to specifically talk about the earth element because it’s 2019’s feng shui element.
Earth or Tu symbolizes stability, security, perseverance, loyalty, and inner strength. Out of all the 5 elements, earth is the element that will bring the most luck in what’s called the period 8.
Period 8 started in February 4, 2004 and will last until February 3, 2024. Period 8 is one of the house periods used in Xuan Kong or the flying stars school of feng shui. These periods determine how the energies move inside the home, creating balance and luck.
Speaking of luck, the juju hat you should go for should be in earthy tones like brown, tan, beige, or yellow.
You can hang your beige, brown, yellow, or tan juju hat in any area of your house that you see fit. But if you prefer to attract good energies this year, it’s best to place them in the southeastern or northeastern portions of your home since these are the lucky directions of the earth element.
Adding a juju hat will not be as drastic as painting an entire space in, say, yellow or beige. And when you grow tired of it, it can be tucked away without any problems.
Do have earthen decorative pieces lying around your house? Place them in the aforementioned directions, too. This will help strengthen this year’s element.
Maybe you have a clay candle holder, clay aromatherapy diffuser, or a terracotta jar that’s gathering dust in the garage. Time to bring those out.
You don’t need to fill the entire southeastern or northeastern portion of your home with decorative pieces with earthy colors, though. Two or three’s enough.
Whether you’re a feng shui practitioner or not, it doesn’t hurt to give this a try. It might just be the nudge that the luck you deserve needs.
