August Recap … Children, Creativity and Joy Gua
The check-in that aligned with the August full moon and focus on your Children, Creativity and Joy gua, began with the August 22nd full moon. This Children, Creativity and Joy gua is the center-right of your home and every room in your home, from the main entrance, when you overlay a nine-block grid, similar to a tic tac toe board, on your space. New moons are a favorable time to set intentions, to cultivate new initiatives and beginnings. Check back two weeks later at the full moon to notice how things are progressing.
Did you set an intention for more fun, personal enjoyment, and play during August? Did it happen? Or perhaps you tapped into creative pursuits? Review the August Feng Shui Forecast and Suggestions.
September 6th New Moon in Virgo … Focus on Yourself!
The September new moon in Virgo falls on Labor Day, September 6th. Each new moon provides a wonderful opportunity to set new intentions. Aligning your wishes with the energy of the new moon and also refreshing the corresponding area of your house and workspace can put you in the flow of positive energy and lots of synchronicity.
The September 6th new moon in Virgo correlates with the Center of your home, every room in your home, your workspace, and your yard. The theme is your personal well-being and health. How have you been feeling … physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually? Are there any gaps between where you are and where you’d love to be?
This month I highly encourage you to put yourself first and to have a personal shift or breakthrough in any area of your life. Begin by tuning into yourself and what brings you joy. Size up the gap between where you are and where you’d love to be. What is required for you to truly thrive?
You might decide to eat healthy food, do exercise you enjoy, get more sleep, release stress. Perhaps you want to change the dynamics of a personal, family, or business relationship. Or commit to explore your perspective about a situation or change or release a personal habit. It can be anything. Make yourself a priority. Since it takes about 30 days of focused attention to successfully change a habit, you’ll have cosmic support the entire month.
The energy in the Center of your house sets the tone for your entire space. It permeates throughout every room. If the Center of your home is well maintained, it sends positive energy to the rest of your house. If it is cluttered, bogged down with things you don’t use or love, needs repair, or is energetically imbalanced, it sends a vibration throughout your space that can contribute to stress and anxiety, muddled thinking, chaos and more. Currently, there’s a lot of tension and stress in the air. You can bring more peace to your own situation by focusing inwardly on yourself and outwardly on your space. You and yours. Not anyone else’s.
Virgo is an Earth sign that represents service to humanity. The archetype is the Craftsman and an image we’re familiar with is that of a maiden or goddess. These are masculine and feminine representations of Virgo. Traits include being detail-oriented, well- grounded, logical, practical, analytic, organized, solution-focused, kind, gentle and supportive. On the downside, Virgo energy can be overly critical, too much of a perfectionist, worrisome, and shy. Work is a key focus of Virgo energy, finding it a challenge to stop and relax.
The spiritual side of Virgo is about being of service. This month, be of service to yourself. Tune into your deep inner being and address at least one aspect that’s bothering you or that has been overlooked or set aside in recent months. Perhaps you’ve been focused on helping others. If you continually serve others at the expense of taking care of yourself, you’ll deplete your energy and not be in the best position to serve. This month, make yourself the center of your attention. Doing so puts you in a stronger position to move forward with grace and ease.
The Center of your home relates to overall Health and Well-Being.
The Center of your home can be the physical or energetic center. It’s the gathering spot or heart of your home. The quality of energy in the Center of your home influences your entire space. Tune into how it feels. Look around and observe your space. Take some photos and study them. What do you notice? Does the space feel good to you or are there changes or adjustments you’d like to make? This is a favorable month to do so.
Pay attention to Center of your home (and every room) if you’d like to:
- Have a personal breakthrough
- Create a healthy habit
- Shift the dynamics of a relationship
- Reduce stress or worry
- Improve your digestion
- Eat healthier
- Get more sleep
- Cleanse your body
- Deep clean your home
- Have a Space Clearing
- Take more responsibility for yourself
- Treat yourself better
Archetype: The Peacemaker
The Center of your home is associated with the Earth element. The archetype for Earth is the Peacemaker. The Peacemaker values serenity, stability, comfort, quiet time, meditating, cooperation, and trust. The Peacemaker harmonizes environments, putting people at ease. Focusing on aspects that bring mutual benefit, the Peacemaker works to unify whatever is divided or antagonistic, converting discord into harmony. This month, focus on disharmony within yourself. What are some ways you can bring yourself into a better state of equilibrium, so that you experience grace, ease, and joy daily?
In balance, Earth energy is nurturing, comfortable, stable, grounded, and unifying. You nurture yourself and others without going overboard. When Earth energy is deficient, you might be focused on survival or be feeling very unstable. You might also feel closed off both emotionally and spiritually. In excess, Earth energy manifests as not being able to do enough for other people. It can come across as smothering, stifling, and overprotective. You might also experience muddled thinking and constantly feel worried.
How do the attributes of the Peacemaker and Earth energy touch your life? Are there any areas you’d like to explore more deeply? This month is a favorable time to experience a positive breakthrough and put yourself on a new track.
The Center of your Home
From a health perspective, the Center of your home is associated with your stomach, spleen, pancreas, digestive system, lymph, and nervous systems. If you have imbalances in any of these areas, check the center of your home, every room in your home, your workspace, and yard. What captures your attention? Does the space feel alive and vibrant or does it seem bogged down or stuck in any way? If it’s the latter, it’s time to refresh.
The Center of your home and the Five Elements
The Center of your home is associated with the Earth element. This is represented by the color yellow, square shapes, low flat rectangles, heavy furniture that hugs the ground, horizontal lines, pottery and earthenware, bricks, and seashells.

Contact Peg if you need the process for the Three Secrets Reinforcement.
Write Your Intention and Meditate on September 6th
I recommend that you refresh and revitalize the Center of your home during the first week of September. Then write a clear intention about what you’d like to bring into your life, prior to the September 6th new moon. Place your intention in a red envelope, energize it with a prayer or blessing and then place it in the Center of your home. Write your intention in the present tense, using positive words, just as if it’s happening for you now. For example: “I fully step into my own power daily and live my life from a position of strength and joy.” The more specific you are, the better your result.
Do a mediation on Labor Day, Monday, September 6th. Visualize a positive and successful outcome for your intention. Skip over how things will happen. That’s a job for the Universe, not you. Your job is to give thanks in advance that whatever you desire is already happening. Expect your intentions to unfold easily and they will. Also, be open to the end result showing up in delightful ways that you don’t anticipate.
Check-in at the Full Moon
The full moon is two weeks later, on Sunday, September 20th. Reflect on your intentions for the month and notice what’s emerging. Notice the small things. Watch for synchronicities and unexpected delights. They gain momentum and turn into bigger results. For example, perhaps you connect with a friend who provides you with an easy solution to a problem, you connect with a new practitioner or have a breakthrough with a nagging health situation, or you discover that peace comes from within, and you create a new daily habit to cultivate positive energy.
