Monthly Energy Update- December

December is here and the month of the Wood Rat (Jia Zi- 甲 子) starts on December 7th. This month we experience the shortest days and longest nights, up to the winter solstice. The yin energy is overtaking the yang is reflected in more dark than light in our days. This seems to be a time when we collectively decide to slow down & reflect inwards, as reflected in the dormancy of nature.

Feng Shui Focus: Inner reflection -

The Jia Zi- Wood Rat is the very 1st in the 60 zodiac cycle, symbolizing new beginnings and growth. The water element of rat with wood sitting on top is like never ending resource, supported and thriving, like a tree planted by a stream. Internal growth and inner reflection is supported by this time of year. It's also a good month for new beginnings! Making a change and planning for 2024 is a good idea. Use your (Sheng Qi) life generating direction to think, work or brain storm new ideas.

Zodiac Signs:

How will this energy impact me?

This energy impact you depending on where (which pillar) the zodiac sign falls falls in your natal chart remember you have 4 animal signs. Take note of where the animal sign falls and that is the area it has potential to impact. Not all zodiac signs have an interaction with each other, so for the monthly forecast we look at which zodiac signs interact (Combine or clash) these are sometimes referred to as "secret friends"

Year: Social circle, friends and community

Month: Career, or parental relationships

Day: Health, relationship

Hour: Thoughts, feelings, emotions, relationship with children

**Discover your 4 animal signs and elements here:

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 your more visible or "seen". Make choices carefully during these times. looking at the Shen Sha stars for the year can help guide your focus-

Red Matchmaker - Possible love match

Salty Pool- Flirty, short term flings. If you're married focus on connecting to your partner.


Monkey: The Monkey may feel more supported this month. If you feel a bit stressed or overwhelmed, look for a mentor or parental figure to talk to. Sometimes all we need is a little nurturing.

Dragon: Look for hidden opportunities, sometimes we make our own opportunity, but other times we have to be ready to grab as soon as the opportunity presents itself. Sometimes volunteering yourself can open other things up for you later.


Ox: The signs of the Rat brings the Ox the ability to make connection this month. December is typically a time to slow down a bit and spend time with family and friends. Find some time to do some holiday activities and enjoy yourself.


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 WATER..

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, Ox : The presence of Pig and Ox combine with the Rat in the month form the pure element of water. Remember water won't benefit everyone the same and for some it can create a feeling of uncertainty or stress. The seasonal combination does come with opportunity for financial gain but sometimes that comes with added stress. Don't forget to ground yourself if you feel stressed. Other than that enjoy the month and be ready to tackle any issues that come your way.


The CLASH animal sign! This is the animal sign that directly opposes the governing energy. This month it's the Rat!! Rat (Water) clashes Horse (Fire)


Horse - Fire) is the animal sign that opposes this month governing energy (Rat- Water) The big fire (sun) cant be put out by water but this doesn't mean you won't feel the pressure. Change is usually the name of the game when you see a clash.

Advanced Analysis - Heavenly Stems:

** PLEASE NOTE- This section is best used by those familiar with BaZi and understand the concepts of their day master and of the"10 Gods" if you find this section confusing or don't understand please disregard and just refer to your zodiac (animal) signs.

Looking at the DAY you're born, look at the element of TOP of the animal sign, This is referred to as your "Day Master" and is used as a focal/reference point, The energy of the element that is dominate for the month will interact with your personal energy. Determine what element your day master (water, wood, fire, earth or metal) is

Water- Water nourishes wood, Wood is waters "output" (HO & EG) :

Act on your ideas! It's a really good time for you write down those thoughts you have when you think to yourself "I just had a great idea!" If you felt stuck in a specific area lately, you could have a breakthrough in terms of finding a solution. Sometimes our best ideas come from those "shower moments" when we aren't thinking of a solution... it just comes to us.

Wood- Seeing the same element is called your "companion element" (F & RW) :

Sometimes we all just need a friend. Even when we want to be alone, it's nice to have someone invite us along. Check up on your family & friends. Make time for them this month.

Fire- Wood fuels fire, wood is your "resource" (IR & DR):

Resource element can give you a heightened sense of awareness. Following your intuition this month can pay off for you, but be cautious you don't go off on a wild goose chase. Don't get caught up in confusing paranoia and intuition, remain logical.

Earth- Wood controls earth, Wood is Earths "Influence" (DO & 7K) :

Be patient with slow progress this month. "Slow and steady wins the race" is the motto of the Earth day master. Although wood "controls" earth, the earth can handle it, the wood roots itself down and spreads. This allows you grow and expand, it just takes time.

Metal- Metal controls wood, Wood is Metals "Wealth" (IW & DW) :

Just like the season, it's time for harvesting and reaping the rewards of a year spent working. However, budget out your Christmas/hoilday spending so you have some left for the New Year. Enjoy the season, you earned it!

Flying Stars for Dec 2024:

Best Sectors:

All sector this month form a partial "parent string" combination of flying stars (1,4,7 | 2,5,8. | 3,6,9) This combination can be used to make progress. Use 1,4,7 for connecting with people. 3,6,9 for sales & 2,5,8 for wealth accumulation. ONLY use 2,5,8 combo if you know what you doing. Never activate 5 stars without extensive knowledge. Activating can lead to loss of finance or illness.

Southwest Gua 2 : Although we don't love seeing wood in an earth palace, the 1/4 fying star combo can be quite beneficial this month for studying. Single and looking for love? place a bamboo in water or water plant in the sector for the month. Try and make some love matches or go on some dates.

Northeast (Gua 8): The 1 star visiting this month makes a 1/7 combo. This shows us we have the ability to connect with others. Use this sector for marketing, sending emails and general work. Looks for days the 4 stars visits the palace to give an extra boost ,

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

East (Gua 3) : The presence of the 5 yellow (5 Star) can cause some issues here with the yearly 2 illness star. Place metal objects, 6 coin charm or salt water cure in sector until Jan 5th.

South (Gua 9) : The yearly 8 combining with the monthly 2 can indicate financial issues for the gua 9, If this falls at your front door o r bedroom cure with salt water jar, 6 coin charm or heavy metal objects.
