- November 4thth: New Moon in Scorpio … Focus on Prosperity
- November 19th: Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse
- November 25th: Enjoy Thanksgiving!
October Recap … Relationship Harmony
The check-in that aligned with the October full moon and focus on the Partnership or Marriage sector of your home, began with the October 20th full moon. The quality of energy in the furthest right corner of your space influences your relationships and partnerships. This is the back right corner section of your home, every room in your home, your work space, and your land. New moons are the best time to set intentions and full moons are when the results of your intentions begin to emerge and come into the light. I find that when you work with natural cycles, life flows more easily. You have fewer obstacles and the blocks that do emerge are easier to resolve.
Did you set an intention for harmonious relationships or partnerships during October? Perhaps you cleaned, cleared, or energized the back right corners of your home, yard, or workspace? Review the October Feng Shui Forecast and Suggestions.
November 4th New Moon in Scorpio … Focus on Prosperity!
The November new moon in Scorpio is one of my favorites! This is the month to work with your Wealth gua. It’s the back-left corner of your house … the area that is furthest from the front door on the left side, as well as all rooms in your house, your yard, and your work space. The energy of these areas influences your ability to attract and retain Wealth, Abundance, and Prosperity. I encourage you to let go of what’s not working for you and things you no longer need or use, particularly clutter in all of the back-left corners of your home and workspace. Doing so prepares you to be open to receive new, abundant, and prosperous experiences in your life.
Scorpio is a transformative energy. It’s deep, mysterious, intense, and full of passion. A downside is that is that it can also be inflexible and vengeful. Three symbols represent the astrological sign of Scorpio: the scorpion, the phoenix, and the eagle. Each symbol contributes to the power and magic of Scorpio energy. Scorpions are nocturnal arthropods, known for their venomous stingers. The phoenix, a mythical bird from Greek folklore, is a symbol of transformation. Living 500 years or more, it would suddenly burst into flames and be reborn. Eagles symbolize spiritual power and illumination in many cultures. In addition to being one of the most admired birds of prey, Eagles are known for soaring to great heights and have keen vision. Each of these symbols represent key aspects of Scorpio energy.
Explore the Shadows; Clean Your Closets
This month explore what’s hidden in the shadows. Let go of fear, anxiety, or troubling aspects of your life, so that you open to lighter and more positive and uplifting experiences. Open your closets, cabinets, and storage areas. Go deep. Remove and toss out what you no longer need … physically in your home and work space as well as emotionally in your body. Release clutter as well as negative emotions and grudges. Doing so frees you to heal and to receive abundance and prosperity. Well-being and prosperity go hand in hand.
The Wealth gua is about the abundance of fortunate blessings in your life. Having enough money is one piece of the puzzle. Good health, supportive and nurturing relationships, living a life of meaning and purpose, cultivating a good balance of giving and receiving, and access to multiple resources are other aspects of fortunate blessings.
Wealth and Wood Energy
The Wealth gua is energized by Wood energy. In nature, Wood energy is displayed in the vitality of trees, plants, and flowers. During autumn the trees and plants provide a gorgeous show of color prior to pulling their energy and preparing for winter. Trees shed their leaves and flowers drop their blooms. Energy goes deep into the roots prior to starting a new cycle of growth and abundance the following spring.
Just as the trees and plants are shedding what they no longer need, it’s time for you to do the same. Reassess things you’re holding onto that you don’t use or don’t love. If you love it, keep it. If you don’t, let it go. Clear excess on the surface as well as what’s deep in your closets. Creating space frees you and your energy from artificial constraints. It’s liberating. When your energy is free, open, and expansive, you attract more prosperous and abundant situations, circumstances, and resources.
Connection to the Helpful People and Travel Gua
The Wealth gua in the back-left corner of your space works symbiotically with the Helpful People and Travel gua in the opposite diagonal corner, the front-right of your space. This is about the right people showing up in your life at the right times. Spiritual guides, deities, angels, and other nonphysical helpers are also connected with this gua.
If you’d like to travel anywhere, activate your Helpful People and Travel gua and place reminders or symbols of where you’d like to go in this area. My husband and I are planning to travel to Scotland for Christmas. While writing this, I realized that we’re planning our trip from our Helpful People and Travel gua. This is wonderful synchronicity.
The Helpful People gua is ruled by Metal energy. Also, Earth strengthens Metal. Having a predominance of Metal and Earth qualities in the Helpful People and Travel gua helps to activate this energy.
Wealth and Helpful People Guas, and your Health
From a health perspective, the Wealth gua relates to your hips and big bones. The Helpful People and Travel gua rules your head and brain. If you have any imbalances or health problems related to these parts of your body, check your space. Remove clutter, alleviate blockages, and be sure that your plumbing, electric, and windows are in good working order. Create a positive flow of energy and encourage it to meander throughout your space. Also, get proper medical attention for long term or serious problems.
The Five Element Connection
The Wealth gua is a Wood area and the Helpful People and Travel gua is a metal area in the feng shui bagua. Wood energy is strengthened by Water and Metal energy is strengthened by Earth. In the Wealth area, Water and Wood can predominate, while in the Helpful People and Travel area, Metal and Earth elements should be the most prominent. The Wealth gua is depleted by too much Fire, Earth, and Metal energy, while the Helpful People and Travel gua is depleted by too much Water, Wood and Fire energy.
Study the patterns in your space and adjust according to your intentions. Place Wealth reminders in the back left corners of your spaces and Helpful People and Travel reminders in the front right of your spaces. Remember that a little goes a long way. The feng shui color for the Wealth gua is purple. A little green, red and/or gold are also supportive. White and/or gray area the colors for the Helpful People and travel gua. Yellow, brown, and gold also work well here.

- Water features and water itself,
- Mirrors, windows, glass, reflective and shiny surfaces,
- Black and very dark colors,

- Pictures of lakes, rivers, harbors, ocean views.

- Fresh flowers, plants, and trees,
- Floral fabrics and patterns,

- Fire, flames, lights, sunlight, candles,
- Triangles, pyramids, diamond, and cone shapes,
- People and animals,

- Red, burgundy and the red palette.
Earth energy grounds and anchors your space. Earth items include:

Write Your Intention and Meditate on November 4th
On November 4th, write about what you’d like to manifest related to Abundance, Wealth and Prosperity. Put your intention in a red envelope, activate it with a prayer or blessing and then place it in the Wealth gua of your home, bedroom, or office. Write your intention in the present tense, using positive words, just as if it’s happening for you now. For example: “I am open and ready for the amazing abundance coming my way.” The more specific you are, the better your result.
Do a mediation on Thursday, November 4th. Visualize the end result of your intention. Surround it with positive energy and see it unfolding for yourself. Let go of how it will happen. Your job is to set the intention and embrace the outcome. Leave the details up to the Universe. What you ask for may come to you in ways you don’t even anticipate. Be open to the unexpected in a positive way, so that you notice and express gratitude when it arrives.
Check-in at the November 19 Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse
The November full moon is two weeks later on Friday, November 19th. We also have a lunar eclipse that day. It’s at 27 degrees, 14 minutes Taurus. If you have important planets within five degrees (22 degrees Taurus – 2 degrees Gemini), tune in. This is expected to be a positive eclipse. After all that everyone’s been through, this is welcome news. The eclipse window is open thirty days before and after each eclipse. Watch and listen for happy events and uplifting news from October – December 19th.
