| According to Feng Shui, the direction you face while studying goes a long way to determine your success in examinations. Ideally, it should be one of your favourable directions, revealed by the kua number, which is calculated from your date of birth
Q: I have completed my Bachelors in electrical engineering in June 2004. My DOB is 10.10.80. I am not sure whether I should do MBA or Masters in engineering. Please advise. Also, what do you think are my job prospects right now'
The Solution: Your self-element is fire and you are coming under the influence of water from 2005 and this will continue for the next five years. During this period there will be major changes in your lifestyle. You will change your residence and there will be substantial status gain. This also means admission to a good college. You can comfortably go for either MBA or Masters in engineering. Both would be beneficial for you. Job wouldn't be difficult for you in this period, but I would suggest you pursue higher education as time is in your favour.
Q:I am a student of Class XII and my DOB is 30.10.86. What are my favourable colours, element and number. Also, which direction should I face while studying'
The Solution: You are a strong metal person and your favourable colours are blue, black and green. Red can also be used in moderation. Your kua number is 5 and north-east, west, north-west and south-west are your auspicious directions in order of preference. You should face north-east while studying.
Q: I have not been successful in the last two board exams. My DOB is 04.02.82. I used to study facing the west wall in a room located in the north-east of the house. Now I have shifted to the south-east room. How can I get better results'
The Solution: You are a strong earth person and will benefit most from metal, water and wood elements and their related colours like white, blue, black and green. Don't face west even if it is your Sheng Chi direction, as the Grand Duke Jupiter is residing here this year. Sit in the south-west of your room and face north-east while studying. Hang a picture of a god on the eastern wall of the north-eastern corner and keep fresh petals floating in water in front of it. Place a bowl filled with salt in this corner and change it everyday. This will help absorb the failures you are facing.
Q: I am a student of Class XII (DOB 06.01.87) and will appear for my board exams next year. What are my favourable colours, element and number'
The Solution: You are a weak wood person and need lots of nourishment from the water element. Surround yourself with shades of blue and green. Do not keep any red or triangular object in the room as these will drain your energy. Drink lots of water and keep a glass of water on your desk while studying. Spread a blue cover on your table. Your kua number is 5 and so north-east, west, north-west and south-west are your auspicious directions. You should face your Sheng Chi direction, the north-east, while studying.
Q: I am a girl born on 10.10.88 and will be appearing for ICSE in March. I have been a good student till Class IX, but this year has not been okay for me. My confidence level is going down, I have become lazy and am not keeping well. I occupy a room in the north-west of the house and face east while studying.
The Solution: You are a strong earth person and need to be balanced with metal, water and wood elements and their related colours like white, blue and green. Excess of earth element make you lazy. You have entered into your favourable metal period, which represent your intelligence and creativity. This means that you will excel in in 2005. Your lucky number is 3 and auspicious directions are south, north, south-east and east. Face north, the direction of water, which will calm your mind and help you concentrate.
