QUESTION: I was born January 14, 1966 at 7:30 am. I am a west group person with a 7 kua number. I am also a wood snake. Should I decorate my bedroom in blue colors to feed my wood snake energies – or will that hurt my kua number? I’m confused about what I should follow — my personal feng shui or my personal zodiac sign. Can you help me?
