Changing places

The fung shui of your home may be altered by seemingly innocuous activities. As such, renovations should not be carried out in inappropriate sectors, which are determined by the year. For instance, you should not knock down a wall in the Grand Duke sector, the area corresponding to the year's Chinese zodiac animal.

Allocating departments to their appropriate sector within an office will ensure a company runs smoothly. The managing director should be in the power position, which is generally the area diagonally opposite the main entrance. It is preferable for him/her to be in a separate room, otherwise their ability to delegate and manage may be compromised.
