April Recap … Your Career and Life Purpose
The check-in that aligned with April adjustments for your Career gua began with the April 26th full moon. This is the center-front of your home and every room in your home. If you set objectives for the April 11th new moon in Aries, 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 April 11th have taken root and shifts are beginning. Watch the patterns, finetune your approach, and go with the flow.
The quality of the energy in the Career gua influences your life purpose, your work, and what you’re most passionate about. Adjusting this area can help you attract a job that you love, do work that inspires you, and connect with your deepest passions. If you’re retired, this area relates to doing meaningful activities. The Career gua is governed by Water energy. When balanced, your life brings you joy. You’re inspired and energized by your work or you’re passionate about your interests and how you spend your time.

May 11th New Moon in Taurus … Wealth Gua
The new moon in Taurus on May 11th is associated with the Wealth and Prosperity gua.
This is the back-left corner of your home, every room in your home, your workspace and your yard or land. The quality of energy in this area influences your prosperity and wealth, the blessings in your life and overall good fortune.
The new moon is a time for new beginnings. It’s a great time to set intentions and get a fresh start. If prosperity is one area you’d like to strengthen in your life, recharging your Wealth and Prosperity gua can help put things in motion.
Taurus is a fixed, earthy sign, ruled by the planet Venus. Taurus traits include security, stability, persistence, dependability, patience, being trustworthy, enjoying material comforts and success, along with working hard, playing hard, and being self-indulgent. On the downside, guard against being too much of a perfectionist, too complacent, or fixated on any one thing. You can easily get stuck.
Free-flowing, unobstructed energy in the Wealth gua of your home or business, as well as the associated area in each room (back-left corner) will help blessings, prosperity, and good fortune come your way. This includes the flow of money and the resources needed to do what you want.
First and foremost, the Wealth gua is about fortunate blessings. Being grateful for all that comes to you, being generous with others, regularly expressing gratitude and appreciation are wonderful ways to continue the circle of giving and receiving. When you’re generous with others and you’re grateful and appreciate what comes to you, your energy channels are open and receptive. In this state, more blessings (of which money is one) tend to come to you more easily.
If you’re worried about not having enough or you’re anxious about not making ends meet, your energy channels close and you end up pushing money and blessings away. This could come in the form of things breaking down and costing money to repair or replace, unexpected bills or expenses, loss of a job, loss of investments, being robbed or losing or misplacing money, among other situations.
The back-left corner of your Home relates to your wealth, prosperity, and fortunate blessings. Look around the back left corners in your home and workplace, as well as each room. Note what’s there. Evaluate the quality of energy. Take pictures and study them. One of the premises of feng shui is that your space reflects yourself. Does your space feel and look open and inviting? Is there a free flow of energy? Is everything working well or do things need maintenance? In particular, be on the lookout for:
- Doors and/or windows that are stuck or require maintenance or need to be replaced.
- Leaky plumbing or drips
- Electric sockets that don’t work
- Light bulbs that need to be replaced
- Doors leading outside (exiting Wealth)
- Dead plants or flowers
- Paper piles, excess magazines, books, or catalogs
- Accumulated dust or debris
- Lots of clutter
- A stove fireplace that may need balancing
- Anything that drags your energy down.
Mismatch Between What’s Needed and Your Budget? It’s All in the Energy!
Your home can still have good feng shui even if it needs repairs or maintenance, or you want to change the décor. It might take years before you have the money, or the project moves to the top of your priority list. So, what do you do? I recommend that you add everything that needs to get done to a wish list. Then visualize the changes happening. You can even make a vision board and include pictures of your anticipated upgrades. Cultivate a positive energy vibe about your space and what needs to get done or the changes you’d like to make. Anticipate the changes occurring and get excited about them. Things might shift for you in fun and unexpected ways when you continually hold your vision.
The Wealth Gua is Energized by Wood Energy
The Wealth area is associated with the Wood element. The archetype for Wood is the Pioneer. The Pioneer explores new areas and roads not yet traveled, breaks new ground, and charges into unknown territory with curiosity. Pioneers are adaptive, cunning, and resilient, moving about freely as consider their options. They are driven by action, a desire to do, to innovate, renovate, reform, and revolutionize. Pioneers also overcome obstacles and move forward. They prefer growth, change and innovation.
In balance, Wood energy expresses confidence, takes appropriate risk, makes good decisions, handles stress, and works through obstacles. Think of Wood as a natural leader. When Wood energy is deficient, it shows up as boredom and apathy, sluggishness, being irritable, feeling bogged down and over sensitive. Too much Wood energy manifests as anger, hostility, impulsiveness, impatience, and irresponsibility.
How do the attributes of Pioneer energy fit within your life? What are the areas where you’ve had breakthroughs? Are there any areas you’d like to explore more deeply?
The Wealth Gua and Health Issues
From a health perspective, the Wealth and Prosperity area is associated with your hips, legs, and big bones. In my practice, I’ve noticed a connection between fears related to money and hip or leg problems. Releasing the fear opens you to free-flowing energy that brings blessings your way. If you have issues with any of these matters, such as hip replacement, arrange your Wealth gua, as well as the back-left corners of every room, so that they fully support you. Make them comfortable without being cluttered. Include items that reinforce the blessings in your life.
Wealth Gua Flags
Bathrooms and doors leading outside from your Wealth and Prosperity gua are red flags for energy leaking away from this area. Slippage may show up in the form of higher or unexpected expenses, things breaking down and costing money to repair, a job loss, promotions passing you by, losing money, feeling broke, etc. If you feel that money is hard to attain, it’s a challenge to pay your bills, your wealth slips away or it’s hard to save for the future, look around your Wealth gua for red flags. In addition to a bathroom and exit door, look for clutter, things that are broken or need repair, and overall stuck or low energy.

Wealth, Wood, and the Five Elements
In the Five Element system, Wood is characterized by trees, fresh flowers, and plants. Wood energy is an activating energy. It’s one of upward growth, vibrance and life. Visualize trees and flowers growing straight and tall. Trees growing with unusual bends and curves indicate the presence the geopathic stress, which is an obstacle to growth.
Wood colors are blue and green. The season is spring, a time of new growth and vitality. Wood furniture is harvested or “dead” wood and is categorized as an Earth element. The feng shui color for the Wealth and Prosperity gua is purple. Thus, having some purple, green, and blue in your Wealth gua is beneficial. A little red and gold work well here too. Wood is strengthened by Water energy and depleted by Fire, Earth, and Metal energy. Emphasize a flow of Wood and Water energy in your Wealth areas. Minimize, but don’t eliminate, Fire, Earth, and Metal energies.
Wood-type spaces are offices, work areas, garages sheds and gardening. These could be areas that bring more Wood energy into your life.
Wood energy is about growth and expansion. Wood is represented by:
- Fresh flowers, plants, and trees
- Floral fabrics and patterns
- Vertical stripes and tall columns
- Vertical rectangles
- Green and blue
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
Fire brings dazzling, sparkling energy to a space. It is represented by:
- Fire, flames, lights, sunlight, candles
- Triangles, pyramids, diamond, and cone shapes
- People and animals
- Electronics and electrical items
- Red, burgundy and the red palette
Earth energy grounds and anchors your space. Earth items include:
- pottery, earthenware, bricks, and clay
- seashells and natural items
- square shapes
- oversized or heavy furniture that hugs the floor.
- yellow, brown and earth tones.
Metal energy helps bring clarity to a space. Metal items include:
- all metal: gold, silver, brass, aluminum and more (pots & pans, lamps, picture frames…)
- marble, granite, flagstone
- natural crystals and rocks dug from deep in the earth.
- circles, oval and arch shapes
- white, gray, and pastel shades.
Eight Simple Ways to Enhance Your Wealth Gua
The Wealth gua is typically a favorite are for people to enhance. Before doing any cures or adjustments, thoroughly clean your space. This will automatically lift the chi and prepare it for further changes. If you enhance your space before you clean it, you’re encouraging more of the same dirt, low energy, clutter, or disorganization to come to you. Here are eight tips that can help activate Wealth and Prosperity:
- Place a vase of beautiful flowers.
- Hang a mirror and send your intentions into the mirror.
- Hang or place a crystal.
- Add something that reminds you of the blessings in your life.
- Add light … on a tree, plant, or light a lamp or small lights.
- Write your intentions and place them a red envelope.
- Clean your stove and oven … even if they are in a different gua.
- Add some purple, green, medium blue, red, or gold.
Remember to do the Three Secrets Reinforcement with each cure or enhancement that you do. The Three Secrets process is a way to strengthen your intention and to transfer it to the related object you place or the action you take. Contact Peg if you need the process for the Three Secrets Reinforcement.
The Importance of the Helpful People and Travel Gua
Pay attention to the opposite gua as well. Helpful People and Travel (HP&T) is the gua diagonally opposite Wealth, in the front-right of your space. The blessings of prosperity come to you via helpful people as well as the resources flowing from Helpful People and Travel. The two areas work hand in hand. If you are activating your Wealth gua, cleaning and decluttering your HP&T areas will provide an added boost. The HP&T gua is associated with Metal energy. Wood and Metal keep each other in check. For your HP&T gua, emphasize Earth and Metal energy, while minimizing Water, Wood and Fire.
Write Your Intention and Meditate on May 11
After cleaning and enhancing the Wealth areas in your home or workspace, write a clear intention about the blessings in your life prior to, or on, the May 11 new moon. Put your intention in a red envelope, energize it with a blessing and then place it in your Wealth gua. Write your intention in the present tense, using positive words, just as if it’s happening for you now. For example: “I appreciate the abundance of resources flowing to me.” The more specific you are, the more targeted the direction of resulting energy will be.
Do a mediation on May 11, visualizing multiple blessings coming to you. Skip over the logistics of how things will unfold. Assume they will and give thanks, in advance, for all of your needs easily being met. Giving thanks in advance is one of my favorite techniques. It works! It bypasses your thought process and all the ways something may or may not happen. When you get excited about already having what you want, the path to make it happen begins to unfold and seemingly magical things can appear.
Check-in at the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse
Two weeks later, on May 26th, there’s a full moon and lunar eclipse. This is the day to tune in with your intentions and notice what’s been happening. You might start seeing evidence that the seeds that you planted on May 11th have taken root. Look for small changes first. Small shifts turn into bigger ones as they gain momentum.
According to Madeline Gerwick, this May 26th eclipse in Sagittarius is associated with insight and intuition, visionary ideas, dreams, and hunches. Pay attention! Tune into the creative ideas that come to you. Act with complete integrity and play by the rules. You’ll be glad you did.
