February Recap … Helpful People and Travel
The full moon check-in that aligned with February adjustments for your Helpful People and Travel gua (front right corner) was February 27th. If you set objectives for the February 11th new moon, tune in and notice what’s unfolding or what’s coming your way. Full moons are when things come to light. The seeds you set on February 11th have taken root and shifts will begin to emerge. Watch the patterns, finetune your approach, and go with the flow.
I received some wonderful Helpful People support a few days after the new moon. On February 16th, several inches of heavy, wet snow and sleet accumulated all day. When I began clearing our front steps about 3:00 pm, I was thrilled when I noticed that our neighbor had previously cleared the end of our driveway with his snowblower. I knew it would make my husband’s job much easier after he finished work.
While I was clearing our steps, a town snowplow came by and deposited a lot of heavy, wet snow at the end of our driveway. I wasn’t upset. It’s just the way it is. Our side of the street gets all the snow when it’s plowed. Then, an amazing thing happened. The driver passed our house and turned his plow around. He returned to our driveway and cleared the end of our driveway again! Immediately I remembered that the new moon was about attracting Helpful People. Fun things can happen when you set an intention and go with the flow.

March 13th New Moon in Pisces … Center/Health
The new moon in Pisces on March 13th is associated with the Center of your home, every room in your home, your workspace and your yard or land. The quality of energy in the Center of your home permeates throughout your entire space and influences your overall health and well-being, including mental health.
New moons are about new beginnings and this month, spring begins. It’ll be a welcome change. Pisces, a mutable water sign ruled by the planet Neptune, marks the end of one season and the beginning of another. It marks the end of winter and beginning of spring, in more ways than one. It’s a time to reframe how you live your life. Notice your creative insights and dream big. From a place of acceptance, allow positive and regenerative change to emerge. Pisces energy helps to break down barriers and to heal. It’s mystical, dreamy, deep, and complex. It’s also warm and nurturing, sensitive, imaginative, and perceptive. Given all that’s going on, reflect on how you can live your best life. Envision an inspiring future for yourself, while staying grounded.
The Center of your Home relates to Health and Overall Well-Being
What’s happening in the Center of your home or wherever you spend most of your time? Take a walk through this area and notice what captures your attention. You might also take a few photos and study them. How do you feel? What are you noticing?
The Center of your space represents an integration of all of your life sectors. Balancing this area will go a long way towards bringing you daily harmony. I typically have a vase of fresh flowers in the center of my home. This brings me joy. As I prune and refresh the flowers a few times each week, I also know that I’m uplifting the chi in my space.
Pay Attention to your Stomach
Healthwise, the Center is associated with your stomach and spleen. Paying attention to your “gut” and “gut feel” is a healthy habit. Your gut reads situations and can alert you to good and bad well ahead of your brain. Finetuning your intuitive feel for people and situations can guide you through life more easily than waiting for others means of confirmation or proof.
Earth Energy and the Center of your Home
The Center of your space is anchored by Earth energy. When in balance, Earth is nurturing, stabilizing and grounded. You feel supported in your endeavors, with a solid foundation underfoot. Concerns about survival, a lack of stability, muddled thinking, and continual worry are signs of imbalanced Earth energy. Another sign of imbalance is feeling that you can’t do enough to please others. If you recognize any of these traits or emotions, this would be a good month to shake up the Center of your home and revitalize it. Sitting rooms, bedrooms and porches are Earth-type rooms … spaces where you nurture, relax, and rejuvenate yourself.
Earth and the Five Elements
In the Five Element system, Earth energy is supported and strengthened by Fire. It is depleted by Metal and weakened by Wood and Water. If you want to accentuate or activate Earth energy, you typically would emphasize the Fire and Earth elements. During 2021, the feng shui Flying Stars call for less Fire energy in the Center of your home. Therefore, minimize the color red and omit burning candles. Adding yellow, gold, beige, and brown is favorable. Placing quartz crystal and crystal spheres in the Center is also favorable this year.
If the center of your space feels too Earthy (or sluggish), balance the area using décor that emphasizes Metal, Water and Wood elements. This can help provide a breakthrough and gets things moving in a new direction.
Here are some ideas for balancing the Five Elements in the Center:
Earth energy grounds and anchors your space. Earth items include:
- Wooden furniture (because it’s harvested wood)
- Pottery, earthenware, bricks, and clay
- Seashells and natural items
- Square shapes
- Oversized or heavy furniture that hugs the ground
- Yellow, gold, brown and autumn/earth tones.
Fire brings dazzling, sparkling energy to a space. (Tone down for 2021.) It is represented by:
- Fire, flames, lights, sunlight, candles
- Triangles, pyramids, diamond, and cone shapes
- People and animals, as well as pictures and sculptures of people and animals
- Electronics and electrical items
- Red, burgundy and the red palette
Metal energy helps bring clarity to a space. Metal items include:
- Physical metal: gold, silver, brass, aluminum, etc. (pots & pans, lamps, picture frames)
- Marble, granite, flagstone
- Natural crystals and rocks dug from deep within the earth
- Circles, oval and arch shapes
- White, gray and pastel shades.
Water energy helps to create flow. It also brings reflective and philosophical qualities. Water is represented by:
- Water features and water itself
- Mirrors, windows, glass, reflective and shiny surfaces
- Black and very dark colors
- Free form, wavy and symmetrical shapes
- Pictures of lakes, rivers, harbors, ocean views
Wood energy is about vibrancy, growth, and expansion. Wood is represented by:
- Fresh flowers, plants, and trees
- Floral fabrics and patterns
- Vertical stripes and tall columns
- Green and blue
Everything in your space contributes to energetic balance on multiple levels. For example, a wooden dining room table and chairs represent Earth energy. Place a white tablecloth on this and you introduce Metal energy. A glass vase filled with fresh flowers adds Water and Wood energy. Red candles on the table would bring in a touch of Fire.
Revitalize the Heart of Your Home
When you feel good in your space and you enjoy spending time there, chances are the energy is harmonized. This is the feeling to create throughout your entire house, one room at a time. During the first two weeks of March, tune into the Center of your home and make some seasonal adjustments. I recommend beginning with a deep cleaning and then refresh the area to welcome in spring. Open up any blocked or clogged areas. Thin out paper piles. Clear excess from tabletops and counters. Return misplaced items to their proper home. Release or recycle things that you don’t use or no longer want or need.
Set an Intention on March 13th and Meditate
After waking up the Center of your home, set an intention for your overall health and well-being on March 13th. Include any specific health requests you may have. Then relax and do a meditation. Visualize the end result of your intention. Skip over how things might unfold. This can bog you down. Let the Universe handle the “how.” Your job is to stay focused on the end result.
Check-in at the Full Moon
The full moon check-in that aligns with adjustments to the Center of your space is March 28th. This is the time to reflect on the objectives you set at the new moon two weeks earlier and notice how things are changing for you. Overall, March should be a good month. Things are shifting for the better. You and your space should be shifting too.

Some of the patterns associated with social distancing are increased anxiety, stress, and an overall decline in mental health. Getting outside in nature, regular exercise, safely connecting with family and friends, and doing your own “release work” are excellent ways to get back on track if you’ve been feeling out of sorts.
During March, I am offering $30.00 off Emotional Freedom & Healing (EF&H) Tapping sessions. This is a highly effective way to release deeply held patterns that may be holding you back. Patterns which may have passed within your family from generation to generation. Release these blocks once and for all. EF&H sessions are $150.00 during March (if you mention this newsletter), instead of $180.00. Contact Peg to schedule.
