Today is Thursday, August 7. This is the 220th day of the year with 146 days remaining in 2008.
According to my daily Feng Shui report (to which I subscribe), August is known to be one of the ‘lucky’ months on the calendar. Supposedly it holds great potential and possibilities for any and all of us to take advantage of the promising energies which swirl around us.
To capture and some of that good fortune, the message suggests that we try the following age-old dictates that promise success during the month. Anytime you see bubbles on the surface of your morning coffee or tea, catch them with your spoon and drink them before they break, all the while thinking of a favored wish or dream.
Catching a falling leaf will bring that same intention to life. Tying a red string in a circle and keeping that in your wallet is said to bring abundance along with it, and looking at the New Moon while holding silver coins in your hands guarantees same. Now, I don’t really believe these things can produce good fortune, but I figure it can’t hurt!
