Updated: May 15
May is here and we’ve passed the 1st quarter of the year! This month is Ding 丁 Si 巳 Fire Snake. The fire energy continues to dominate with the main Qi/ energy or essence of the Snake being Yang or big fire. This month may be a little more unstable feeling than last month when we had Earth to keep us grounded. Just like a flame that flickers or in this case more like a shooting star that catches the corner of your eye, it's and gone & you wonder if you saw it at all!
With the Snake being known as a "growth" sign or "branch" , this makes May a good month to learn a new skill, start a new field of study or take a course. This can also indicate quick changes, travel and movement in fields like your career or relationship.
Feng Shui Focus: Be flexible and adapt to change
Emotions may come on quite suddenly or situations may change and turn around very fast, leaving you to wonder what happened. Just remember to be flexible as indicated by the wood energy of the Rabbit this year. Also... " Be like water" (in my Bruce Lee voice) meaning be fluid & able to adapt & conform to your surroundings. That's what this year is all about.
Born under the Fire Snake Zodiac? -
The Fire Snake is also one of the 4 special zodiac signs (earth branches) that has both yin and yang present . Yin in the "Heavenly stem" and Yang as the Sub Qi of the "Earth branch". Making those born under the Fire Snake sign unpredictable, seemingly change emotions at the drop of a hat & easy to anger. They are very friendly, can easily camouflage into different social circles and fit in wherever they go. They make friends easily, and yearn for genuine connection but in this desire for authentic friendships they tend to attract this in a superficial way or attract superficial relationships. The term "frenemy" come to mind. They also tend to push out relationships if they feel they've been done wrong and don't believe that hurt can be unintentional and get offended easy. They tend to take things to heart rather than give others the benefit of the doubt. They also have a profound sense of wanting to even the score or get back at someone, often not giving up until this is achieved. Like the sun...they come back day after day... Don't anger a Fire Snake.
Fire Snakes also seem to burn out quickly from a social aspect and need quiet time from over
stimulating situations. Loving a Fire Snake can be challenging but like everyone else, they're worthy of love even if they claim they don't need it, especially when mad, the silent treatment is their go-to. This actually stops them from saying hurtful things out loud, giving them time to think things over. Hold a space for when they're ready to talk, you'll know it. Remember even though we may have these tendencies (we all have short comings) self awareness is number 1. When you're aware of your behavior you can then change it.

How will this element of YIN FIRE this month impact my Daymaster Element?
Looking at the DAY you're born, look at the element on TOP of the animal sign:
Water- Fire is waters "wealth" element- For a male, this is also your wife or girlfriend element. Single guys can look for connection over the next couple of months, while all fire day masters can enjoy the wealth element in terms of financial gain or opportunity, This sometime comes in the form of working harder or putting in more hours on the job for that fat paycheck. You may also feel the need to dive into work or work is your main focus. Be sure to enjoy a bit of fun too, don't get overworked especially since there's more fire than last month.
Wood- Wood fuels fire, Fire is Woods Output: The wood day master may again feel more inspired or motivated this month with some fire appearing to "fuel" you. Enjoy the inspiration and embrace new ideas.
Fire- Seeing two of the same elements means this is you friend element : The "friend element" is always a tricky on IMO. If we think of friends in real life we have one of two types of friends, our real supportive friends or friends that are indifferent, don't care much about our troubles or sometimes at the very worst, plot to harm you- ie. "fake friends" or the" frenemy" Likewise when the "friend element" comes up it can be supportive and beneficial but other times it's competitive in nature. Sometimes it just makes us compare ourselves or feel the need to keep up with our peers. Avoid overspending to keep up appearances.
Earth- Fire creates earth, fire is earths resource element : Seeing the element that grows or produces you means you can feel or see additional support. Help is there when we need it if we look, and sometimes we can be the one that helps others.
Metal- Fire controls metal, metal is influence element : The female metal day master looking for love may attract some attention the next couple of months. Have friends set you up or put yourself out there to meet new people. This month may be one where you feel a bit more stress or pressure, just think of how fire impacts metal, it molds and refines it but the process isn't always easy. A strong Bazi (if you're metal born in fall season- Sept, Oct, Nov.) means you rise to the challenge and are unfazed by adversity, can handle anything that comes your way. Power though any setbacks & you'll be just fine.

Animal Signs and Astrology:
How will this energy impact me?
This energy impacts you depending on where it falls in your natal chart, remember you have 4 animal or zodiac signs. Take note of where the animal sign falls and that is the area it has potential to impact.
Year: Social circle, friends and community
Month: Career, or parental relationships
Day: Health, relationship
Hour: Thoughts, feelings, emotions, relationship with children
Snake : 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.
Zodiac Combinations & Interaction-
Some of the Zodiac signs pair together to make special combinations. These combinations make an element that dominates the energy.
Rooster, Ox: Metal element dominates when this trio appears, The metal can help bring a sense of structure if you've had a hard time focusing. the water present in the year acts to make thinking and brainstorming ideal for the metal element. The fire in the month may help refine and polish these ideas. Earth can control the fire element- use your knowledge & expertise to gain trust. Place yourself in your "stability" direction if you feel overwhelmed.
Monkey: The Monkey combing with the snake makes the element of water. which can indicate the thought process of problem solving and intelligence. It may be a good month for you to make a break thru in an area of life you've been stuck or a problem you've been trying to find an answer to. Be cautious of doing for others and expecting they'd do the same for you when you know their true character. Don't try to expect the best for someone that you know won't deliver. Give selflessly expecting nothing in return, if you give or help someone, do it out of the kindness of your own heart. This is the way snake and monkey form a "punishment"
These are the animal signs that make up the season of Summer (Snake, Horse, Goat). 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.
Horse, Goat: The presence of Horse, goat or both in your natal chart mean you can take advantage of this seasonal combination especially if you benefit from the element of fire. The fire is really taking over in this scenario. It can however lead to positive changes and financial gain especially if fire is your wealth element.
The CLASH animal sign! This is the animal sign that directly opposes the governing energy.
There wont be a true clash since the Pig zodiac signs combines with Rabbit for the year.

Best Sectors- mimicking the flying star placement of last year, flying stars are quiet good this month
South: The 9 star can be used all month, no activations in the sector.
West: The west and 7 star are generally not considered to be lucky but can be used for networking and making plans. 7 can be a quite social star. Marketing included!
Northeast: The 8 wealth star moves home and can be used for securing more work, contracts etc.
North: The 1 star is excellent to use for movement if things feel stagnant. When combined with the 9 star present for the year forms a combo of 10 can can increase CONNECTION. Activate with water or a fan to get things going and to make connections.
Southeast: The southeast is useable this month but not for activations.
Worst sectors: Avoid over activation of these areas, general use is fine.
Southwest The 2 star of illness flies home but should cause many issues. Avoid overactiavting the sector and you should be ok. If you sleep here a salt water jar can be set out for peace of mind and to absorb the impact.
Avoid renovation in these sectors
South & Southwest: Wu Ji Sha (5 Tiger Sha-2023) has the ability to cause issues when you activate the area & do renovations. General use of the sector is ok but avoid anything extra in this sector. Monthly 3 killings is also present.
Monthly & Yearly Shas-
West, Southwest & Northwest: The yearly san sha or "3 killings" are present if activated by digging or renovation they can cause issues like illness, loss of money or losing valuables. These energies are only activated by renovation, avoid in this sector. The Northwest also governs the Pig energy that is also the month breaker & clashes the Snake
Southeast (3, Chen) , East (2, Mao) & Northeast (3, yin): The Tai Sui for the year & the monthly 3 killings make these sectors unsuitable for renovation & digging.
**Renovations can be done in some sectors using date and time selection specific to your home. Please consult a professional to start renovations in these sectors.
