Welcome to Gui Mao the of month of the Water Rabbit! We've passed the 1st month of the year of the Tiger and wow! did it come in strong! The month of February will set the tone for the entire year because the year (2022) and month (February) were the SAME ANIMAL SIGN (Ren Yin- Water Tiger) So pay close attention to this month as it will be a reflection of what's to come for 2023. This phenomena is called descending Qi, It can be experienced when the animal sign makes an appearance ahead of time, generally we can see this when an animal sign comes in for the month, it can be a reflection of the year with that same animal sign. 2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit- March 2022 is the month of the Water Rabbit. In fact this year is special in that each month will be a preview of the next 12 years. Ex. April is the month of Wood Dragon, 2024 is a wood Dragon year... etc. Take note of your year as it will be a reflection of this coming energy for the decade and beyond !!
Animal Signs and Astrology:
How will the energy this month impact me?
This energy impact you depending on where it 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.
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:
Rabbit: 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. Look for Dog Days to Combine and support you and add some extra fire. Lots on excess Wood energy signals the importance of growth and learning. Be cautions of leg and feet injury, stress & feelings of anger.
Pig & Goat: You may benefit from the extra wood energy this trio or "wood frame" creates. With the element of wood being present in the Tiger for the year this can make an excess of wood energy. Depending on what wood is to you, you may experience overthinking, over analyzing, or be moire irritable or short tempered. Take a few minutes to breathe when you feel overwhelmed
Dog: Combining with the Dog creates the element of FIRE , The lack of fire in the year and month can have you feel a bit run down emotionally. Some extra fire energy with the presence of the rabbit can help give you a boost if you benefit from fire.
These are the animal signs that make up the season of Spring (Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon). 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.
Dragon and Tiger: The presence of Dragon and Tiger with the rabbit create the element of wood. Again as stated above look at what wood represents to YOU. Its a big season of growth for you! Use this extra boost to push yourself ahead in your endeavors & start your year off strong. You may find new opportunity & doors opening for you over the Spring season. Sometimes excess wood energy can impact our ability to focus and you may see signs of ADHD if you already have a strong wood element. Recognizing the patterns and signs can help you navigate your issues and if you're not able to focus, go easy on yourself, prioritize and cut out unnecessary distractions.
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 Rooster!!
Rooster: The Rooster will experience the clash this month, remember its not always a bad thing. Clashes just mean change or movement. If things have been stagnant it's a good month to make changes especially implementing a new health routine, taking up a new religion or spiritual practice. This is a positive way to create the change yourself.
Note advanced flying star method: The presence of the HeTu combination of flying stars in certain sectors.
******Also remember to take into account the natal star chart of the home which include the period (year house was built) , mountain (sitting) and water (facing) flying stars for best results *****
Southeast : Flying stars 4-9 in the southeast can be used for relationships and connection. Place a flowering plant or plant that sits in water like a bamboo. The 4-9 combo forma a special combination of Early Heaven HeTu element of Metal. Use the area for decision making.
North: Again with the HeTu combination 1-6 creates Water, This is a good combination for the head of a company, boss or manager to work at. Water can be placed in North 2 using date selection for a powerful result.
Worst sectors: Avoid over activation of these areas, general use is fine
South: The 5 star moves making its way around to the South Sector. Avoid rearranging furniture, activations and unnecessary renovations ion the area.
Southwest: Worst sector of the year may face further aggitation , the 7 star entering the palace with the yearly 2 can signal health issues worsened. be super mindful of this if your front door is located here. However, lets note that the 2-7 makes a HeTu combo that's creates Fire. The fire further feeding the earth energy could reinforce the connotation of illness energy associated with the area. Just be mindful & keep metal objects in place and obviously avoid renovations.
Limited options for "good days" this month but you can still actively use the sectors for maximum results.
