In 2015, the Northwest area is associated with fame and fortune.

Those who are fathers, oldest sons in their families, bosses, or leaders in business have the most potential to gain fame and wealth fortune if they do the job diligently. 

It’s most important to keep the Northwest area clean, bright and airy. 

If it’s family area such as dinning room or living room ~ Upward growing plants, for example, Lucky bamboos, Peperomia obtusifolia (Baby rubber plant) can help to enhance positive energy. You should also decorate the space with paintings of calm bodies of fresh water,or place a cup of water by the plant.
