Feng Shui master recommends Mickey hat for Obama.

Just reading a piece online at The Wall Street Journal about rising demand for advice from Feng Shui Masters as we move from the year of the rat to the year of the ox. Favorite section comes late in the story when the subject turns to Obama:

A Word From Mr. Yeo

To make his predictions for 2009, the 45-year-old Mr. Yeo, who wears his hair in a long, flowing mane, said the heavens led him to Taiwan in mid-August to seek out 11 oracles. A powerful typhoon nearly forced the plane to make an emergency landing. "Was there not a message in the wind and the waves," Mr. Yeo said, "representing the volatility that was about to hit the market?"

He's negative on the U.S. for now. President Barack Obama, he said, may want to consider wearing the emblem of a rat to balance the traditional misfortune of being an ox in the Year of the Ox. "Maybe someone should present him with a Mickey Mouse hat," Mr. Yeo said.

Just to be clear, there is no mockery or jest intended here. I personally start each day with a brief ritual that includes a Feng Shui prayer of abundance. Works for me.
