When the light wanes, the days now grow shorter, it is the time of chrysanthemums……
They symbolically shine light into the darkness,
In feng shui terms, they lift the chi…..use purple Michelmas daisies in the northeast sector, reds, yellows in the east, southeast, south, pink ones in the southwest, white in the west, northwest, north—–in your garden and/or in your home!
Unless you live in Italy….where all chrysanthemums are considered flowers of death and funerals!!!!!
In Japan, it is the Royal Bloom….in China, agent of new auspicious energy.
The energy given, the blossoms in your view, bring a shoring up of your strength, enough to push you forward, through the magical month of October, with its three chi moons!
Chryos is Greek for GOLD, golden chrysanthemums in the west, northwest and north feng shui sectors brings the strong energy of the sun to you. Life giving, energy sustaining……chrysanthemum tea is an excellent tonic, chrysanthemums also dissolve muddleheadedness, confusion, they bring clarity, deep understanding, allowing decisions to be made. Decisions NEED to be made in October, one new moon already gone, full moon on the 16th, new moon again on the 31st…..October is a time of power, a time to decide, a time to ride on!
Fresh blossoms of chrysanthemums, get them around you, have them at home, on your office desk, see them each day through October, a time of monkey year when at last ‘the force is with you’, enabling you to prepare for busy Cockerel Year….2017.
