Closets in Feng Shui
First, de-clutter all of your closets and organize them. Get rid of things you no longer like, need, want or wear. Anything that hasn’t fit in more than two years must go. Give it friends, family, church or a charity.
Everything should immediately be taken off of the top shelf. Because the closet’s top shelf in Feng Shui represents your future, you want it filled with your business cards, resume (if you are seeking a job), marketing tools, money, happy photographs and a list of what you want for your future. Type/write wishes and cut into little strips of paper and place into a red envelope, so that when a particular item comes true, you can throw that slip of paper away. When they are all gone, you can start another list and replace the old list on the top shelf.
Make the list as specific as possible. For instance, “I would like a new job that is 10 miles closer to my home where I will get a $15 an hour raise (or whatever) and where I will get along with the staff and management in an industry that I will enjoy within the next six months.”
The middle of the closet or where you hang your clothes, represents your present. Get rid of outdated garments or accessories…your ideas may be outdated and you will be overlooked for some important position, or opportunity that you were waiting for because of “something” that was outdated in your closet.
The bottom of the closet is the past; place items that you want to forget or no longer need in this area. If you do not wish your past (ex-spouse/partner, ex-job, etc.) to follow you into the present, you should keep those items in large bins or tubs and seal them so they are safe from infecting your present. Keep old wedding albums for relationships that didn’t work in this part of the closet so that negative energy does not interfere with your present relationships.
The bedroom closet is the most important closet in your home because it reflects the way your relationship is headed. If you need a better direction, clean out that closet!!
These are just a few ways to help you arrange your life by organizing your past, present and future areas in all of your closets, thereby attracting positive energy to help you achieve the goals you need and desire.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18
You have the energy, the intent and the vision to make your life fun and to get rid of anything that no longer is needed in your life. You are energized and excited about doing so many interesting things and having new experiences this summer. Doubts may fester in your mind about whether or not you have the right partner for you. Business partnerships may change or you are looking for a more dynamic energy to bring in more business. Even though things may get relatively confusing and mystifying at times, just keep your cool, do what needs to be done and you will be going in the most positive direction for you.
TAURUS – April 18 – May 19
If things just don’t seem up to par, they will come by to lift your spirits or give you an encouraging word. You are too busy and stressed and need some down time which they will insist upon. When you find a spare moment, you should take a walk in your garden, neighborhood, a local state park or just go on a picnic to rejuvenate and relax. Your emotional life is becoming more balanced every day and you are thinking in a much more home-like fashion. House hunting, home and yard projects or seeing your living arrangements with new eyes and new intention are very important.
GEMINI – May 20 – June 20
If you aren’t taking advantage of all the tools that are available for you on the web for free advertising, then look into them. Set up a workshop or lecture in a local library to promote your business and get out in to the public’s eye. Great time for artist pursuits as well. You have too many irons in the fire and need to focus on the most important issues, job or situation that brings in the most money, makes you the happiest or more satisfied with your life. Don’t think that things will move in a positive direction if you are not pro-active in achieving your goals. Opportunities will not be knocking on your front door anytime soon.
CANCER – June 21 – July 21
You may be changing jobs, looking for a new apartment or home or trying to find out if the relationship you are in is the right one for you. There may even be a chance that you will change careers! This is a great time to travel, get further formal education or just attend some lectures, seminars, events, workshops or training programs from which you could get a further certification for perhaps this or another job. Even though things just don’t seem to be making sense to you right now, things will start positively forming so you can change into a more positive direction.
LEO – July 22 – August 22
You must talk to those with whom there is an issue. You need to straighten things out and be understood. Do not let others make you feel badly about anything that you have done. You are in the right. Things just seem complicated now and a bit confusing, especially where your self-worth is concerned. However, you will be doing a lot of thinking to sort things out and you will be very active now. You will also be doing many of the things you’ve always wanted to do but perhaps never had the opportunity to do them. Good luck is on your side now so start new projects that have been on the back burner for too long. You are getting serious about so many things in life now, including a love, so you may be settling down sooner than you think.
VIRGO – August 23 – September 21
Home life is very important now so make sure you get back to basics and please stop being You are planning to revamp, refurbish or redesign your space. Make sure you are not worrying over nothing and communicate with others so that they know why you are angry with them. Keeping things inside will not help anyone. Be strong and take the bull by the horns and deal with whatever you have to and move in the right direction. Much of this internal dialog just doesn’t gel with reality. You are blowing things way out of proportion. Deal with facts and handle things as they come to get your list of things to do completed in an orderly fashion and in a timely manner.
LIBRA – September 22 – October 22
You have come to the realization that you want to go after things that make sense to you and not do what other people want you to do. They seem to be growing up and are actually setting more boundaries and limitations so that they have more time to do what they need to do to satisfy their ambitions, their career and leisure. Business or personal partnerships seem to change, but in a good way. You are attracting much more positive partners and will also find time for yourself to share with family and friends in travel, activities, family parties and celebrations. It’s a good time to make choices about your future and start moving in that direction.
SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
You want to be everything to everyone but be careful not to over extend yourself. Your constant complicated routine of working, cleaning, taking care of everything, shopping, laundry, hobbies, nights with the family, cooking, etc. may become too much to handle if you don’t give yourself some down time. Get help, organize, delegate and set up a time to visit friends or family for some much-needed relaxation. Keeping yourself busy with artistic pursuits such as writing, singing, dancing, painting/drawing which will be beneficial to your inner child and will decrease your stress level. You need to make your mind concentrate on something other than worries or responsibilities.
SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20
Just when you think nothing else is going to change, here comes another life altering experience. However, with these changes comes good energy and new beginnings in so many areas of life. There may be some health issues that need to be looked into, but once you take the initiative and go to the doctor or health care professional, you will be relieved to find out that your issue is not as bad as you had thought or that it can be taken care of easily. Instead of doing a lot this month, you are thinking about what you can do and how to organize your life, the activities of your family as well as vacation plans. Thinking is a wonderful thing, but action is a bit better! Perhaps getting a list together to see what you must do to prioritize your life would be useful so that you will have more leisure to spend the way you want to.
CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18
You are hardworking and diligent, but somehow the universe is always ready to push you into something new whether or not you are ready for the change. Home life is interesting now and seems to conflict with what you want out of life or goes against your beliefs at this time. Dramatic instances and upheavals may seem upsetting at the time, but in the long run, it happened to help you move forward into a new direction. This could be a direction you never thought of, but now there is guidance to go into that new direction which will bring you many positive opportunities for your future. Good luck will find you once you feel you are going in the right direction.
AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17
Thinking of the past will cause you upset and never get you to where you need to go to find a new partner or sense of peace. Finances continue to be an issue, but with diligence and careful planning, all the concerns will be easily handled. Budgeting is an important tool to use to get your finances back on track and to take care of all the obligations that you needed to. Dealing with a partner’s finances or getting his/her finances back on track may also be one of your responsibilities. You would prefer never to handle another responsibility again, but they do seem to continuously find you.
PISCES – February 18 – March 19
Keep secrets to a minimum and don’t let others talk you into doing things that you know you should not be doing. Life may seem to be blown out of proportion but in a good way. You may have too many friends, too much work, too many parties to go to and just too much to do for the time you have allotted. Organization is the key to your success now. Your emotions are calmer than they have been in some time and you are open to new experiences and new ventures, journeys and a new direction in life.
