Feng shui master Jessie Lee predicts ‘more fear than hope’ in 2020
Feng shui master Jessie Lee described the “pictorial outlook” for 2020 as a moon during a sunset.
“For such a scenario, one can imagine that the day is getting cold and darkness is setting in. People would generally feel sad, depressed and miserable. There is more fear than hope, ” she says. Overall, the economy is not good.
However, some people will strategise and overcome their fears. For instance, even in the darkest days, entrepreneurs or businessmen will still need to “sell” hope…
In 2020, she predicted, there will be a rise in incidences related to the heart. People who have had a heart attack or heart bypass may have a higher chance of a relapse or an attack, and should therefore be cautious about their health.
This year, Lee said, is also a year to check one’s connections. “Be around people who are highly successful,” she advised.
About hindrances in life, Lee joked: “You need to let go of whatever is not serving you anymore – but I don’t mean your wife.”
She clarified this by saying,”One should let go of one’s (negative) beliefs, attitudes and habits. Also, be aware of everything around you. And be teachable.”
