WITH barely a day to go before we leave 2020 behind, people have mixed feelings for 2021. Some are optimistic, while others are uneasy. Although the vaccine is becoming available, we are certainly not yet out of the woods and must continue to be vigilant about safety.

As the world tries to cope with challenging times, the ancient Chinese philosophy of feng shui continues to teach us to find harmony and balance amid the chaos.

Feng shui master Marites Allen, whose forecasts are highly anticipated by feng shui enthusiasts, normally holds physical events as she loves to interact directly with attendees. She has held several well-attended forecasts in Cebu in past years. This year, her forecast was streamed live online from London where she is currently based, and drew attendance not just from the Philippines but also around Asia, Europe, the United States and Australia. The event was co-hosted by the King of Talk, Dr. Boy Abunda, and had a live Q&A at the end. The webinar encouraged people to “Thrive, Not Just Strive, in the Year of the Metal Ox” and covered feng shui for homes and offices, as well as her forecasts for each sign under the Chinese zodiac.

Feng shui enthusiasts may connect with Allen and her team at Frigga.co.uk or maritesallen.com for consultations and to know more about the charms and amulets best suited for their sign or personal aspirations.
