August - the Monkey month
According to the Chinese Lunar Calendar the month starts on 8th August at 04:51 hrs
The Monkey is creative, fun, full of ideas and always on the go. Monkeys don't tire easily and like to jump from one project to another, so you need to be aware of this energy and ensure you allow yourself some time out to recuperate this month.
The larger issues that the chart flags up for this month centre around people. This could easily be seen as the vast number of migrants, who are on the move this year. The issue is going to come to a head this month and government leaders will come under pressure to make decisions, take action and to put some money behind their suggestions.
The month hexagram gives us fire over wind, which indicates a strong likelihood of a few wildfires flaring up this month. The weather is likely to continue to be quite warm, but with a reasonable amount of cloud cover around.
Feng Shui Enhancers for August
In August auspicious 'career' energy flies into the North. To enhance this energy place 4 bamboos here for the month. (4 living bamboos in a vase).
Money energy becomes active this month in the East. To tap into this energy, either place a water feature in the East, if you have one, or place a bowl of water, with flowers floating in it. (Ensure you keep it fresh - both the water and the flowers).
Also generally being in or making use of these directions within your home, garden or office will help to activate these energies for you this month.
Have a good month!
