Feng Shui Birds Make Good News, Wishes, and Love Flock to You

The phoenix brings opportunities that have financial benefits

  By Kathryn Weber Some might say feng shui is for the birds -- but they'd be wrong. Birds are for feng shui! There are few creatures in the world that inspire the envy of man, but birds do. With their ability to soar and fly above the trees and among the clouds, it’s no surprise.  They are loved for their beautiful, bright plumage and their sweet songs that remind us that winter will soon be leaving.
