Angel Thompson is an astrologer and Feng Shui expert. Over the last 20 years Angel has advised clients, from poor to wealthy, on how to organize their homes to take advantage "chi", the cosmic life force energy that fills the universe.
Fortunately astrologers know exactly where every planet will be in the future and what blessings and troubles to expect. With this knowledge applied to the principals of Feng Shui we can organize our home and office to take advantage of unseen forces in the universe. Feng Shui allows us to arrange our space to minimize troubles and maximize success.
Here is a brief outline of the procedure. First you need a compass to determine the orientation of the building. Next you draw a floor plan of the building with the south walls on the top of the drawing. Then you center your reallocated birth horoscope over the floor plan of the building. Orient the mid heaven to the south wall of the building, the ascendant to the east and the descendent to the west. Now each house and planet in the chart will fall in one of eight equal sections of the floor plan; north, north-west, west, south-west, south, south-east, east, or north-east.
With this completed, the building can be thought of as a Zodiac with the "houses" and "planets" in their respective areas. Let's start with the meaning of the houses.
