Energy Update: December 2022


This month we get a something special happening with the energy of the “Water Rat” Ren Zi. We actually get the pure element of water, so that means this month, what you see is what you get. In Bazi or astrology talk, it’s a special category of the 60 zodiac sign only 4 fit into the category of yin/yang because the element on the heavenly stem (top) is a different polarity (yin or yang) than the ”Earth Branch” or "animal sign" . People born under this sign are usually a bit unpredictable and they could outwardly show one emotion but be hiding their true feelings. Also, they may be one to change their feelings really quickly, be ok one minute, then upset the next or vice versa. Self awareness and giving people born under the Water Rat sign some space to let them work though things themselves. Lending an ear without offering advice is also recommended if they want to talk about their feelings.


Feng Shui Focus & Activation: Keeping calm in the chaos-

Southeast- Metal- use the element of pure metal for focus(Flying stars 4-9)

East - Wood to absorb water and fuel fire for inspiration. (Flying stars 3-8)

North- Great for someone who is in a power position, Career & authority related (Flying stars 6-1). **Activate with water, movement or a fan using date selection. instructions below


The extreme amount of water can be compared to a hurricane, and we all know hurricanes are tumultuous & unpredictable. Not saying this north will be bad or hard collectively, sometimes the energy is just the way we FEEL. With holidays coming up we tend to get caught up in the preparation that we stress out about gifts, dinners, hoilday parties and finishing our work before the holidays cut our work days short. Let‘s not even get started on the blur that is the week between Christmas & New Years! Take a breath in between busy times and literally just breathe when you feel stressed. Remind yourself the holidays are meant to be family time & focusing on the things we’re grateful for brings us more. If you don‘t have family, take a friend up on a holiday event or create your own. Put aside the notion that the holidays are ruined if you cant buy gifts. And most importantly remember that even in the storm, there’s calm in the center of it.

Heavenly Stems (the element) - How will this element of Yang WATER paired with the Rat impact my Day master Element? This month we get the pure element of WATER since the Rat is water also.


Looking at the DAY you're born, look at the element of TOP of the animal sign, only focus on the element under this category:


Water- Water is the same element making this month a ”friend” month : Seeing the same element as your “day master” (the element in the column of the DAY you’re born) means this month you’ll see the “friend element” the water hidden inside the zodiac sign of RAT means you’ll see pure water this month. This can make it a good month for partnerships but watch the competition to make sure they’re not going around you & taking what’s truly yours. The water already present in the year can make for too many people in the same industry as you. Collaboration & splitting profits can be a good solution. With excess water watch for kidney related health issues this month.



Wood- Water feeds wood making it woods “resource“ element: Good health usually accompanies the time you find your resource element. If you’ve had health concerns it could signify the timing is right for you to find a doctor to get treatment. It also shows you have more support in general around you, a visit with you our mother to find comfort when feeling stressed may help.



Fire- Water controls Fire : Overwhelmed may be the feeling this month for the FIRE day master. Think of a candle or sun in a storm. Recognize the energy and let the feelings pass. Remember that the feeling of being hurried is sometimes our own perception. Don’t make hurried or impulsive decisions. Also note pressure from external sources like friends or colleagues, don‘t let anyone force you to make a last minute decision without thinking about it or researching it yourself. For a female, this can be a month for you to find connection & romance.


Earth- earth controls water, water is earth’s ”WEALTH’ : It’s always desirable to find your “wealth element“ and the potential for financial is strong this month with the element of pure “water” being present, it can be a month you reap the rewards of your hard work. Remember when your wealth element is present it’s not magic or winning the lotto that brings you finance gain but cashing out on your hard work or even selling assets, it’s a good month for you to sell off old inventory etc, For a male, this can be a month for you to find a love interest.


Metal- Metal creates water : Metal literally creates a water. If you leave a Metal cup or bowl outside it’ll attract the water particles and you’ll see condensation. Water to the metal day master is self expression and creativity. For a yin metal day master, be cautious of speaking out of turn or expressing your strong or controversial opinions this month. The year is already one that you may have put your foot in your mouth. This month can amplify your desire to express yourself but be warned it may come across offensive. It’s a month to refine your speaking and communication. The yang metal people may find themselves feeling more creative.

Rat: Anytime an animal sign that is in your natal chart is present for the year/month, it can feel more stressful as you feel like you’re more visible or "seen". Make choices carefully during these times. Look for ox or dragon Ddys to Combine and support you. Lots on excess water energy symbolizes emotions, be cautious of kidney & womb related issues.



Combinations-


Dragon & Monkey: So much extra water with this combination. Water can create the feeling of overwhelm depending if water is favorable to you or not. Regardless, this much water energy can create lots of emotion and the feeling of turmoil. Mostly of your own making, center and note the changing energy.



Harmony-


Oxen: Combining with the Rat creates the element of earth , giving some boundary to the excess water although not enough to soak it up. Pay attention to details so you don’t overlook or miss an opportunity as many may present themselves this month.


Seasonal-

These are the animal signs that make up the season of Winter (Pig, Rat & Ox). All 3 animal signs should be present to form combination to make the element of WOOD..


I've recently came to understanding the importance of seasonal combinations in a natal chart. The presence of this combination has the potential to make you very strong, show wealth opportunity etc.



Pig & Oxen: The presence of pig with Oxen and Rat combine to create the element of water. With the element of water dominating both the season and quite literally the month the water is at its strongest. Opportunity may find you this month. Be ready & trust that you deserve it.



Clash:


This is one areas I have somehow overlooked during my monthly energy updates. The CLASH animal sign! This is the animal sign that directly opposes the governing energy. This month it's the Horse!!


Horse: With the horse being the element of fire at its core it clashes with the water in the rat. Remember the horse also combines with the tiger in the year and that the combination of another zodiac animal takes away the “clash” those born under the sign of the Pig, Dog and Horse also have a combo with the year (tiger) so a true clash doesn’t occur. Yay for you! Theres always exceptions to the “rules”.

 


Feng Shui:


Best Sectors:

Note advanced flying star method: A He Tu combination occurs in the North (6-1 water) , East (8-3 wood) and Southeast (9-4 Metal). **Use date selection and use the area for best results.



Southeast : Flying stars 4-9 make the element of pure metal. Use area for focus.


North: Flying star combo 6-1 further support the season with the pure HeTu combination to make the element of water. Use sector for movement in your career.


East: The 8-3 combo of flying stars makes the sector extremely good this month. This is one of the time the 3 stars can be an exception to the “Do not use” rule of thumb, especially if you have positive features outside the east sector of your home (Think park, water, spacious area, nice landscaping, nice view) The sector can be used to create and cash out on wealth opportunity And also promote growth and expansion.



Worst sectors: Avoid over activation of these areas, general use is fine



South: The month breaker & monthly 3 killings move in indicating to avoid renovations and keep area quiet. The flying star 5 is also present, if you use this sector often or if you front door is located here, you may need to place a 6 coin charm or metal in the area.
