2008 Chinese Horoscope/Zodiac Feng Shui

Considerable long post ahead. Proceed if you are not scared of being bored to death.

2008 Chinese New Year starts on the 7th and in Malaysia the public holiday will be on the 7th and 8th of February 2008. Refer to 2008 Malaysia Public Holidays for other public holidays. Better plan ahead for your holidays to avoid any last minute rushing.

Anyway, for the 2008 Chinese New Year, yours truly found some Feng Shui that is based on the 12 animals zodiac. To know more about the story/legend on how the 12 animals are selected as the zodiacs, read the Chinese Horoscope/Zodiac.

What is Feng Shui? Direct translation would be Wind Water. In Chinese culture, gentle wind and clear water have always been linked with good harvest and good health. So, good Feng Shui is well, good and bad Feng Shui is of course bad and should be avoided.

Feng Shui or "Fung Shway" as the Ang Mohs would pronounce it, is actually an ancient art developed in ancient China that teaches the way to balance the energies (chi) in the environment to ensure good health, wealth and good fortune for people who practice it. Well, will not go in depth on Feng Shui as the focus is on the Chinese Horoscope/Zodiac Feng Shui.

So, if you read the Chinese Horoscope/Zodiac. You will know that there are 12 animals chosen as zodiacs. It is said that one's fortune and personality is based on the zodiac and thus Feng Shui will also use the zodiacs as reference.

The followings are taken from an email sent to me. I don't know who is the original author thus unable to credit the author.
I also wish to emphasize that the following Feng Shui might not be true and that there are studies done to test the accuracy of the Feng Shui technique as a whole but have not been 100% proved.
However, I do believe the science part and rationale of Feng Shui ultimately is for creation of harmonious environment.

Alright, that clarification done. Lets start with the Rat. This is the year of the Rat in case you are still in the blur.
(Be sure to check out the last section for the extra bonus tips for the Rat)
