Basically the zodiac signs have a 12-year cycle, meaning that 2012 is Year of Dragon, so as 12 years later i.e. 2024. So if you happen to be born before 1924, you can do the maths yourself.
To find out your Feng Shui Colors, simple find out your zodiac sign according to your year of birth, then check the Feng Shui Colors above.
For example, a gentleman born on 17 April 1959 belongs to the Pig zodiac and his luck colors are gold, silver, white, blue, gray and black. If he buys a car, he should buy one in one of these colors. His accessories are preferably in these colors. So as the ceiling, walls and furniture in his house.
Certainly this is just a guidance. You don’t need to stick to these colors only. Even if you do not use any of these colors you could be lucky if it is your lucky year, they simply boost your luck.
Wait… Something You Must Know
For the purpose of finding out your Feng Shui Colors (and everything related to Feng Shui), the beginning of a year is NOT 1 January! What? Is this a joke?
No, it’s not. In Chinese, Spring is the real beginning of a year for the purpose of Feng Shui and fortune-telling. Spring usually comes on 4 February every year, sometimes slightly earlier or later. In other words, if you were born on 29 January 1949, for the purpose of Feng Shui Colors you do not belong to the Ox zodiac sign but Rat instead.
