Feng Shui Energetic Themes of Age 8 – The Age of Monumental Crisis

Feng Shui essentially is an art of “time and space”. Each 20-year is considered a different age or period. Each age or period is also being governed by a prominent theme that ultimately influence us on an energetic level. 

Currently we are towards the very end of Age 8 (2004 – 2024), the age I call the ‘monumental crisis’. As of February 2024, we will be officially stepping into the Age 9 (2024 – 2044) – the Age of Clarity, Illumination and Transformation.

 Age 8- An age of monumental crisis 

The trigram of the Age 8 is considered an Earth trigram, it symbolises that we are stopped by the appearance of a mountain. If you feel your normal path is being blocked temporarily, or is having the crisis of your life, you are in the right place.

This trigram reminds us that the external orientation need to be reversed inward in order to seek way out.

It calls for stillness, inner poise, inner perception and introspection. It represents the highest peak of spiritual attainment and an obstinate refusal to move.

This energy can really challenge our mind and the traditional sense of ‘moving forward, progress and achievement’, where everything around you can see to be moving in a super high speed. Staying ‘still and anchored in your own rhythm’ can feel extremely difficult.

Understanding the deeper meaning and what you are called to do during this time can help you move with this energy rather than fighting it.

Many people found things in their life are collapsing, and many of you are also on a journey of a Quest….A quest of ‘who am I?’, ‘what is my place in the world?’

This is because the Age 8 is also an age of cataclysm, an age of where can feel overwhelmingly upheaval but it is the only way that leads us to the transformation and illumination.

Instead of leaking your energy trying to glue everything together, allow things to collapse so the right pieces can fall into place.

In Age 8, what needs to end is meant to end.

The suffering you think you have to endure is to help you to confront. To confront the deepest and darkest shadows, fears and demons. The purpose is for clarity and transformation.

This arrival of the consciousness can feel like a hard and difficult task and require a lot of you, but it is necessary in order to re-orient you so you can face what you need to face.

The ultimate goal of the Age 8 is to help you become an internal authority of yourself, an autonomous human being.
