    covered

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what "covered" could mean in the following context:

    The misfortune star visits you this month, so it is better to be more careful. The most important things this month are to avoid big risks, watch your finances, and ensure the feng shui of both your home and office are properly covered so you don't succumb to bad luck. Using the Five Element Pagoda in your home and office will go far in protecting your luck this month. Try and get ones that are the right size for your home/office.

    My first impression is that "covered" means "protected" or hided (hided in order not to be seen). But on the other hand the author says"Using the Five Element Pagoda in your home and office will go far in protecting your luck this month" and this pagoda is also feng shui. This sound like a contradiction to me -- first the author says that feng-shui should be protected and then he/she says that feng-shui should be protected with feng-shui.

    Banderas, first of all thank you for your input.
    Do I understand you correctly that by saying "placed over" you mean the usual meaning of "cover" as in "The table was covered with a white table-cloth"? On the one hand, I myself think the same but the author's mentioning of using pagoda makes me doubt.

    Re: covered

    I'd say 'covered' in the context means 'taken care of' or considered and addressed to give the best advantage in terms of feng shui.
