January 22, 2023 marks the start of another Chinese Lunar New Year. Avid feng shui followers look forward to welcoming this day, which is the start of the Year of the Water Rabbit. The year ends February 9, 2024.

Chinese astrology sources say that the ruling animal sign of each year has qualities that may have important indications for what’s in store for the entire year for different individuals, businesses, and even world affairs. The Rabbit is seen as a calm, gentle, quick and alert and this animal sign has become a symbol of peace, prosperity, and longevity in Chinese culture. Thus, 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.

International feng shui master Marites Allen, who is set to hold her annual Feng Shui Updates on December 17 and 18, 2023 for her large following of feng shui aficionados from different countries has chosen to adopt the endearing qualities of the Rabbit for her event theme. Her annual event to usher in the new Chinese New Year is aptly themed “Hop, Skip, and Jump in the Year of the Water Rabbit 2023.”

Ms. Allen says that every year, there are various positive or auspicious prospects for every animal sign in terms of career, business, health, and relationships. We all need to be aware of what these lucky indications are and make efforts to enhance our chances through proper feng shui interventions. Doing this could give us reasons to benefit from those positive energies and manifest success in many aspects of our lives. And that explains the HOP part of her theme. Event participants will have an insider view on how to harness the lucky energies of 2023.

“However, for some animal signs, the year could pose challenges in different life aspects. The Rat, Tiger, and Rooster animal signs are known to conflict with the Rabbit; thus, they may face some difficulties next year,” says Marites. People born in these conflict years, especially, should be aware of how to SKIP those challenges through various feng shui suggestions that will be discussed during the event.

And as an allusion to the JUMP aspect, Marites is expected to share new modalities to increase one’s potential for success in 2023. The Monkey-born feng shui expert admits that 2022 was not meant to be a good year for her as her animal sign is in conflict with the ruling Tiger sign. As a proactive stance, she immersed herself in mindful and spiritual activities to counter her potentially bad luck. Some of these initiatives will be shared during the event.

“Wholistic is the way to go in 2023 and beyond. With the adverse effects of the pandemic years still hovering around us, we need to be able to manage ourselves and our surroundings. With this awareness, we hope to inspire participants to use those feng shui indications to their advantage. So that, whatever challenges there may be, there will be reasons to jump for joy in 2023,” she concludes.

Marites Allen also announced in a media conference that her 2023 Feng Shui Almanac, Planner, and Horoscope Books are now available. Her self-authored references have become popular locally and internationally for their highly useful content.

All three feng shui references are updated every year, but many users choose to keep their copies for the many timeless tips found in each one of them.

The 2023 Feng Shui Almanac is a colorfully illustrated desktop calendar using lunar indications to help you choose lucky days and hours for daily activities. With the energy shifts that happen every month, day, and hour, it is important to know which ones specifically work for or against you. The latest edition includes interesting information on the Five Element Cycles of Feng Shui, which is very useful in arranging spaces to make them more conducive to attracting good fortune. It also has sections on the Good and Bad Days for each animal sign, and tips for avoiding money and negotiation losses.

The 2023 Feng Shui Planner is a more detailed guide with provisions for daily management of activities based on favorable and unfavorable indications. It has a monthly guide to the shifting Flying Stars or the lucky and unlucky sectors of the home and office to guide the reader on which areas to enhance or cure to optimize good luck or keep negative energies at bay. It also contains many helpful information, including Personal Horoscope Elements for each animal sign. It has plenty of space for writing down important notes and reminders.

The 2023 Personal Horoscope Books show you how to leap and hop to a successful Year of the Water Rabbit through information on your luck prospects for the year and for each month. It has suggestions for feng shui charms to use to boost good fortune and cures to manage challenging energies; plus, other useful tips for promoting wealth, health, career, business, and personal relationships. Each book has a QR code that allows a groundbreaking Augmented Reality (AR) experience – a feng shui first by Marites Allen and Frigga Charmed Life. Images come ‘alive’ giving you a realistic feel of the featured products unlike the flat impressions given by print images.
