The unique relationship between you and your house cannot be undervalued. While there are lots of effective and powerful feng shui remedies which can improve quality of life for any person, there are some feng shui circumstances that cannot be changed. I often use myself as an example of what can or cannot be changed. If I want to be twenty pounds thinner, it can be done. If I want to be six inches taller, it's not going to happen.

Based on your Chinese Zodiac sign, there is a certain house type, which can sabotage your ability to get married. You have to be comfortable using a compass in order to determine this. The precise compass direction is a narrow 15-degree increment, so you have to be very careful doing your compass reading. The direction to be concerned with is called the "Sitting" side of the house. This is basically just the back wall of the house. The Sitting Side of a House is considered its real character or strength, just like the back or spine of a person. So, if the back/sitting direction is incompatible with your own Zodiac sign, then it will interfere with your ability to attract a serious partner. If you moved into this house type after marrying, it could also undermine the existing relationship.

Refer to the chart below to determine your zodiac sign and the direction that your house should not be backed up to if you want more than anything to be married. Keep in mind that February 4th begins each year, not January 1st, when using these feng shui formulas.

Example: If you were born in January of 1962, you would consider yourself born in 1961 instead.
