Feng Shui By Fishgirl absolutely LOVES peonies. They are traditionally good feng shui symbols and you’ll see many ancient Chinese painters have used them if you look more closely next time you’re in a museum. Especially good used in the Love & Relationship sector of your space, peonies strengthen that area of the bagua because of their red, white, and pink tones. But recently a local flower expert here in Maine told me that peony plants can outlive many people, thriving for a hundred years or more. I have never heard that before and never had it explained to me by any feng shui masters. However, I am certain this is probably at the root (no pun intended) of the reason why peonies gained good luck status with feng shui masters of ancient China. The point is they represent longevity and if you place them in your Love area, you are encouraging a long happy relationship.

If you want to activate your Love & Relationship area, find some art work of peonies and hang it there. Or get some fresh peonies and put them in a vase within your Love sector. Let us know what happens!
I’m posting this from beautiful Charleston, SC. We’re here to celebrate the wedding of a friend’s daughter. What a romantic city! You couldn’t get much better weather, too. All this love stuff got me thinking about some of the previous feng shui advice I’ve given for Love & Relationship. It seemed like a perfect time to revisit these links…
If you’ve been in love before and you can’t seem to find a new partner, you may want to find out if your ex is blocking you from finding a new love. This happens when we hold on too long to “love clutter”. If you’ve been burned a few times you might benefit from these steps on overcoming the fear factor so you can jump back into the dating game. But first, be gentle with yourself. Getting over a past love can take time. Be sure to try the Feng Shui By Fishgirl recipe for healing a broken heart and remember, even celebrities like Sandra Bullock can benefit from solid feng shui advice.
You might already be thinking about merging your households and wondering what the feng shui impact of moving in together will be. Pay special attention to the details of your bedroom where most of the pillow talk will take place in your love relationship. When choosing heart art for your Love area, remember that all hearts are not created equal but my Love Power Hearts are specifically designed to help boost your love power and I still have some available. They make wonderful wedding gifts, by the way!
