Wearing the wrong amulets
The wrong amulets might bring bad luck and destabilize your emotions.The following is a summary of the negative effects：
- Those born in spring（i.e. between 4 Feb and 6 May）wearing too many gold or silver accessories are more likely to injure themselves.
- Those born in summer（i.e. between 7 May and 8 August）wearing too many accessories of Fire nature or in red color will become short-tempered and argue with others easily.
- Those born in autumn（i.e. between 9 August and 8 November）wearing too many Metal or Earth accessories such as jade, tend to be extremely stubborn and easily agitated.
- Those born in winter（i.e. between 9 November and 3 February of the following year）wearing too many Water gemstones such as diamonds, will feel depressed and pessimistic.
Generally speaking, wearing a ring（or other accessories of similar sizes）would not affect your luck too much. In other words, it won‘t bring you good or bad luck. So, you can buy a ring based on its design and your taste only, without any Feng Shui implications. To make its power more potent, wear several accessories of the same Elements at the same time.
