Question: We are in the process of redesigning our kitchen and, as I have just become interested in feng shui, I thought I would try to incorporate some principles. I have worked out my own and my husband's Pa Kua (mine is 7, his 6). After trying a lot of possibilities we have come the conclusion that the only place for our eye-level stove and microwave is facing south.

Yes, you did the right thing. In Feng Shui, it is always best to have the stove face the Fire element direction.

We will have a separate hob, which will be on an island unit running N-S. From what I have read this is not very auspicious for either of us, but there are really no other practical possibilities.

Yes, this is not ideal but it is better than having it next to a water element e.g. wash basin or refrigerator.

Also the stove will face the refrigerator, which I also believe is undesirable. Is there any thing that can be done to counteract this?

The " good news " is that since you mentioned that your stove is facing the South, which belongs to the Fire element, it is acceptable to have a water position e.g. refrigerator to be facing the `fire' element ie. the stove to `cool down the Fire' element.

Good Luck in your renovations!
