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!

...Keep up the Great Work!... Cecil Lee Cecil Lee support@geomancy.net - Feng Shui at Geomancy.Net" I read about some exceptional experience with Feng Shui, I have my fair share of unpleasant experience with the so called Feng Shui expert , who visited my apartment and advice of various changes. To be fair with him, there were some improvement in my family life particularly my wife and son. The main problem with the expert is the unwillingness to share his knowledge , not even to paying customer ! When the consultation period was over, it is even more difficult to extract anymore Feng Shui knowledge from him. I have paid quite a few hundreds and all I get are instructions without explanation. I have no idea which "house" I belong, what is my "bai zi" , where are the good direction etc. I have read a few books by Lillian Too on DIY feng shui but I am always doubtful whether it is the right interpretation and whether I have applied correctly. Having found this site was a blessing because now I can have someone to guide me along.

Please keep up the great work. " Ang Jen
