    Here's a bit of high-summer Feng Shui wisdom that's bound to make your days sizzle and shine!

    Feng Shui suggests that during this time of year, you should energize the chi of your most important home items by exposing them to sunlight. So, start by airing out your bedding in an outdoors space, particularly if it's been subject to stale energy during the first half of the year.

    Next, thoroughly cleanse a crystal by first washing it in water, then by placing it in direct sunlight for eight hours to revivify its energy.

    Your Moon Sign and Your Well-Being!
    As the closest (astrological) planet to Earth, the Moon has long been associated with earthly things, such as our bodies and health.

    Your Moon Sign describes your physical vitality -- how much or little you have -- and the things you can do to boost your own well-being. Each Moon Sign connects to different body parts and systems. Based on your Moon Signs' correspondences, here are some wellness tips from the cosmos!

    Aries
    Circulation and cardio health are especially important. Regular activity and the occasional high-intensity challenge ensures you stay on your toes and keep your blood flowing.

    Taurus
    You tend to suffer from a slow metabolism, so regular exercise is important. Avoid sugars, fats, and starches as much as possible.

    Gemini
    Gemini highlights breathing and the lungs, so schedule a regular yoga class or swim session to enhance breath work and keep your arms and shoulders strong.

    As the summer season officially begins, many of us may travel for vacation, weddings, graduations, or simply to visit family elsewhere. To start your travels in an auspicious way, if you'll be staying in a hotel, always request a room with good-luck numbers on its door!

    After all, Feng Shui suggests that numbers emit a vital life force that can help create positive or negative experiences, so it will behoove you to request a room number composed of fortune-filled vibrations.

    The most positive numbers according to this modality are 1,

    May is, of course, the fifth month of the year on the Gregorian calendar. In Feng Shui, the number five is hugely symbolic of good luck. So, it should come as no surprise that there are many associations with the number five -- and the month of May -- in Chinese mythology, philosophy, and lore.

    The number five is thought to be fortunate, in part, because of its status as a sum of the number two (ying) and the number three (yang). Combined, these forces represent the five elements, the five Chinese grains, and even the five sacred

    Never mind that old adage about not putting all your eggs in one basket. During a month drenched in everything egg, you'll want to put the water from boiling all those eggs in one bathtub so you can become more youthful-looking and filled with energy and vigor!

    Feng Shui tradition tells that if you wish to experience all the aforementioned benefits, you should begin by boiling one dozen eggs. Once the boiling process is complete, allow the water to cool, remove the eggs, then pour the water into a freshly drawn hot bath.

    Lunar Cycles and a Healthier You
    It's a fast-paced world we live in, and we often sacrifice our health for more ambitious agendas. However, when we lose the ability to take care of ourselves, we become less effective overall. So, let lunar cycles guide you in living a healthier life -- after all, that beautiful orb in the night sky is also known as the Great Nurturer!

    New Moon: Break habits.
    Based on the cycle of the Moon, it's been said it takes 21 days to break a bad habit. If you can make it to the last quarter of the lunar cycle, this is an ideal time to turn new corners in attitude and consciousness.

    Waxing Moon: Focus on good nutrition and rest.
    During the waxing Moon (new to full), the body rebuilds. The cost for not taking care of ourselves during this phase is high, as we make ourselves especially vulnerable to illness. Rest more, and if possible, put off major chores until the waning Moon phase when -- you'll be delighted to hear -- your home will remain cleaner longer!

    The Best Massage for You -- According to Your Sun Sign
    You probably know that massage is one of the best ways to relieve stress ... but with so many different types to choose from, how do you decide which is right for you? Let the zodiac reveal which modality best suits your Sun sign's needs!

    Aries
    You like to rush into things head-first, so relieving tension in your skull can persuade you to slow down. Cranial sacral massage will help relieve all that built-up pressure.

    Taurus
    Nothing makes you happier than a chance to indulge your sensual side. Combining soothing scents with a relaxing touch, an aromatherapy massage will provide you with a multi-sensory experience while relieving tension in every area of your body.

    Adopt a Healthy Lifestyle – with Help from Your Sun Sign!
    Perhaps the healthy eating regimen you set out for yourself at the New Year has fallen by the wayside. Or maybe you've used winter's inclement weather as an excuse to cocoon rather than pursue a new gym membership. Still, it's never too late to become what you might have been, so here's a sign-by-sign guide to making important lifestyle changes that could benefit you for a lifetime.

    Aries
    You're the first to get on the fitness train -- and also the quickest to grow bored with the routine. Break your bigger resolutions into smaller weekly or monthly ones, then attack each of them in turn. Competition is your biggest motivator, so regularly challenging a friend to a fitness contest will help keep you on track.

    Taurus
    You love a sedentary lifestyle and your sweets, and it's so difficult for you to give them up. Research shows it takes 21 days to form a new habit, so pinpoint your fitness goals, then tackle one at a time as you persevere for three straight weeks. Once you get

    With so many of February's energies devoted to flowers and hearts, what better time to share a Feng Shui secret demonstrating how the former could quite possibly lead to the latter?

    This tradition says that red or pink flowers -- preferably placed in a pink, white, crystal, or clear glass vase and placed on both bedside tables (because you do have two bedside tables, yes?) -- will heal relationships on subtle, yet sublime levels. Following this Feng Shui idea may even bring a new mate your way!
