The ancient Taoists developed feng shui from their understanding of the subtle interplay of energies that make up the universe, and no true mastery of feng shui is possible without a knowledge of Taoism. Taoist Feng Shui provides step-by-step geuidelines for improving your home, business, garden, property, and neighborhood using this ancient system of knowledge.
Bringing the same combination of unusual insights and hands-on advice she brought to Taoist Astrology, Susan Levitt traces the history of feng shui and shows how it is grounded in knowlegde of yin and yang and the five Taoist elements of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. Most important, she shows that feng shui solutions must be customized to the individual, based on one's personal Chinese astrology sign.
Once this firm background in Taoism is established, readers can clearly understand the philosophy behind such concepts as the best colors for each room of the home, room-by-room furniture placement, yin and yang balance, correct lighting, outdoor landscaping, the function of hallways and entrances, and the proper use of mirrors, crystals, fountains, and other feng shui tools. With in-depth examples from the author's private feng shui practice, Taoist Feng Shui can help all readers transform their personal environments to create peace, harmony, health, wealth, and good fortune.

Susan Levitt, author of Taoist Astrology and columnist for Feng Shui Journal and Sage Woman magazine, is a professional feng shui consultant, astrologer, and tarot reader in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ms Levitt has an extensive background in Chinese history, literature, and medicine.
