In my 12+ years of doing Feng Shui consultations, I’ve learned to shy away from making blanket statements. Instead, my answer to a general question is, “It depends.” It depends on the specific individuals living in a space, surrounding homes and businesses, vegetation, traffic patterns, road configurations, climate, etc.
There can be an instance where a southern facing home needs a correction due to an abundance of the fire element. For example, a southern facing home with intense sunshine in a desert with fiery occupants would indicate an extreme amount of fire. In this instance, I would suggest the client or business owner install a water feature out front.
In addition, I will always say, “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it!”
