The right approach is to consult a feng shui master first before putting your 3 months deposit for the the retail shop that you love at first sight! You may be tempted by the cheap rent or the frills that are thrown into the takeover but beware nothing is free in Singapore.

Singapore economy is evolving so rapidly, the sudden construction of a viaduct or MRT or expressway or flyover can affect your business profits. Take for instance the construction of a viaduct gives motorists a short cut instead of patronising your shop. In feng shui this is call artificial water which represents wealth.

2. Retail shop feng shui tips 1. Your shop should be located on a busy street with wide pavement, huge but slow human traffic. Take Ngee Ann City building in Orchard road (picture above) as an example it has a very wide pavement, crowd is huge and slow. Notice the clever use of metal & water to prevent the qi from escaping. The left and right hand side of the building on the background looks like palms of hand to embrace the fountain of wealth. It is also symbolic to the Green dragon and the white tiger based on form principles. The five flag poles to prevent bad energies. This is consider to be very auspicious for retail business. If the pavement is narrow than the wealth leading towards your shop is limited. If one cannot do well inside such a complex with such good feng shui it must be something wrong with the product or the sales staff. If your shop is one of those that is located at the dead end of the road cul de sac; in feng shui this is call yin place. It is more beneficial for female entrepreneurs and the merchandise that you are dealing with should also be niche-market driven. In other words not mass consumer impulse buying goods. 2. Besides a high human traffic volume, from a feng shui water technique point of view the walkways leading to your shop must be from an auspicious origins and the outflow should be bringing inauspicious energies away from your shop. 3.

It is common in shopping malls with escalators and lifts. Do not choose one where your door faces an escalator. As for those retail shops that faces the lift it depends on your door orientation and what energies of that door sector. If you are door energies are wealth than it actually amplify your wealth. 6.

Get a shop that the road/human pathway leading towards you meanders instead of long, straight and narrow. 8.

If you are choosing a retail shop, one side of the road is a row of shops whereas the opposite is an empty piece of land or a park. Then the location is not suitable for general retailing. The reason is in feng shui it means sole ying or yang energies does not grow and prosper. In the above illustration, the road where the shops are yang energies, the opposite of the road facing a garden are yin energies. The only chance to survive in the retailing business is to have a specialise shop for e.g. a specialty restaurant, gaming internet cafe , a designer boutique but not a generic retailing shop. 4. 12.

Tempers will flare for no reasons, as for health it will affect the skin, heart, eyes and even fire hazard. 13. If yours is a 2-storey shop and your window is facing the head of street light, in feng shui is like facing a snake head. Health wise it will cause skin problems or even stroke. The feng shui cure is have an eagle caricature facing the snake head. 14. Lastly if not the most important choose a business that is not only suitable to your bazi 5 elements but it should be going with the latest trend and in demand. For instance most people do not rent a a video right now, they go online and watch a movie. 15.
