Feng Shui of Calumet Farm

Feng Shui of Calumet Farm

Calumet Farm is the first beautiful horse farm visitors see when they fly into Bluegrass Field in Lexington, KY. Miles of white fences and pristine barns.

Recently, I was talking with Monica Hess about all the work she has lately been doing for horse farm owners to create good luck. Her legendary predictions and suggestions have been right on target.

She recently did some for me that helped save my dogs life. Also, she is planning classes locally for those that wish to learn more about feng shui. Contact her for times and dates.

Below is Monica's Feng Shui of Calumet Farm. Enjoy!

The horses are running at Keenland.  It's time to bring up the seemingly odd pairing of horses and feng shui.  For a long time now I've been working on the feng shui of horse farms...figuring out whether the space in the house, farm office, and barn is being used correctly.  And, what exactly would be good feng shui for a horse farm anyway?  By studying Calumet and other historic farms, I've determined what flying stars will help create a great horse, and what will help that horse win. 

I now have some very important data through the help of the librarians at the Equine Library at Keenland.  (who knew there was such a library?)  It's amazing the resources that turn up when you start digging.  At any rate, I now have enough information to determine the feng shui chart of Calumet Farm.  I've gone back in time to the glory days of the 30's, 40's and 50's when Bull Leah, Whirlaway, Citation and Alydar made the name of Calumet a household word, to the tragedy and bankruptcy of the 80's and 90's.

The chart of the house begins when it was built in the fourth period, 1938.  It brings in the 4th period money star.  There is also a prominent 5 water star, 3 energy for strong competition, and "best in the business" mentality.  The 5 rules the 5th period and brings with it great accomplishments during that cycle.   The stars were working for Calumet back then.

However, we're now in the 8th cycle and things have most definately changed.  Things have to be done a little differently if Calumet wants to be on top again.  Those same stars that built the most famous horse farm in the world are the same stars that turned on Calumet when their glory days were done. 

Now the 8's rule, and their energy is gentle.  Great money can still be made, but the technique will be a little different than before.  The chart of the house is only part of Calumet's luck.  There's also the farm office to consider, as well as the stallion barn and the barns where the mares and foals are kept.  All of it counts.  I have not managed to get all the details on the other buildings yet, but expect to have them soon.  When I know more I'll be able to give an accurate assessment.  I have my suspicions, but I'll wait.

For now, I'm enjoying digging deeper into the feng shui of this beautiful farm.  I will give some serious advice though, in case anyone from Calumet is reading this blog.  They need to be extra careful with transportation this year.  If at all possible, keep the horses out of the south sectors of the barns.  And, avoid digging to the direct north or south of any important building. 

The first Saturday in May of 2009 looks like a great day for Calumet.  Until then though, mind the store carefully.

Barbara - Feng Shui is the Chinese art of placement. It helps bring prosperity and happiness residents of homes, buildings, businesses, etc.

Susie - Curlin was pretty good back in the day!

Teri - Calumet is a beautiful place. It's sort of like the heart of the bluegrass.

I love those fences too Lewis. Maybe it is the Feng Shui at work more than the fences.

Patrice - It's confidential but I can say that she helped me with my dog's healing and recovery.

Lizette - As a former professional in the horse business and a horse property specialist, I find the idea of feng shui and horse farms very interesting.  Never thought of it in regards to the barns etc.  I always look at the placement of them as releatied to the land and how it working on the farm would work such as leading the horses to the paddocts etc.
