Monthly Energy update - March 2023
March is here and depending where you live we can start expecting a shift in the weather as we move officially into the Spring Equinox. The early flowers likes daffodils, tulips and hyacinths are already out and we start seeing signs of life return in the form of green sprouts. Coincidentally we can think of the energy we experience this month with the "Wood Rabbit" governing the energy much the same. The Wood Rabbit carries the pure element of Yin Wood- a soft flower or vine. Much more gentle than the energy we experienced in Feb. with the energy being doubled, it's more like a rose garden. With the rabbit year we get an excess of this yin wood energy . We also get 2X the Rabbit (Rabbit month in a Rabbit year)
What's does this mean? In general with the energy of the "heavenly stem" (yin wood) being the same as the "earth branch" (Rabbit=yin wood) making the two "friends". The energy seems to indicate that this month can be more about connecting, The Rabbit also holds the "Peach Blossom" energy for the year, making this month full of possibility for romantic connection. Yin wood also represents academic achievement, so this month could be good for you to learn something new or enroll in some courses. This is the theme of the year entire but doubled this month with the double Rabbit (yin wood) . I also believe with the 4 - yin wood flying star that sits center of our homes for the year, sets the tone for the year making the year full of possibility in the romance department.
Feng Shui Focus: Connection
This month the theme is CONNECTION, with the double Rabbit & extra wood energy this month we can look to connection, expansion and growth. It'll be a great month to attend a conference with those in the same industry, networking events or a maybe a reunion and of course dating. This is particularly true if you are the element of wood- read below. In general though, connection is the theme and tone for the energy that's visiting in March.
- Sometimes being around many people can be triggering, overwhelming or draining. Keep frustration caused by excess wood energy in check by focusing on what makes you feel loved & appreciated. Take a few minutes to breathe when you feel overwhelmed.

How will this element of WOOD this month impact my Daymaster Element?
Looking at the DAY you're born, look at the element on TOP of the animal sign:
Water- Water creates or grows wood, wood it waters "output" or creativity: Seeing the element that your element creates shows you have opportunity for growth and expansion. It can also indicate the creative process, new ideas and personal growth. It’s a good month (and year) for you to ”grow“ a business, idea or start a new venture or learn a new skill. Self expression can also be included in this energy, making it a good month to put yourself in the public eye on social media or presenting in front of a group of people.
Wood- Seeing the same element is known as your "Friend" element: The friend element indicates people around you that are similar to you such a friends or perhaps you have more interaction with people in the same field as you such a co-workers or find yourself facing either competition or working/partnering with others in similar fields to “secure the bag” . Usually this tells us that going to networking events, socializing , setting up meetings & working with others can benefit you this month.
You may see growth and expansion or recieve offers to work, partner or be interviewed by someone in another state. It's a great month to connect with like minded individuals and the excess yin wood hints to maybe attending an industry conference or meeting. Take the opportunity to make friends!
Fire- Wood fuels fire, Wood is Fire's "Resource" : Seeing the element that grows or produces you means you can feel or see additional support. The yin wood is not suitable for fueling fire. Rather than the resource that large wood gives us- fire wood, we get a jungle of wet vines. The extreme dominance of the yin wood can dampen once fire. This can mean you may feel sluggish, uninspired & loss of drive. This can mean for you it really is time to rest. If you have a Rabbit or Dog in your neat chart remember the 2 combine to make fire- to offer more support but it's like lighting a forrest fire in the Rain Forrest
-Remember that wood is a "resource" to fire, Resource represents a motherly figure or someone nurturing. When you feel down it's time to lean on people like this and rememberrepay karmic debt when the time comes, by being there for them, in their time of need.
Earth- Wood controls earth, making it earths "Influence" element : Last month we saw the effects of the energy of wood growing upwards, but this month times time to branch out or spread like a vine. On the opposite end of things sometimes the dominate presence of the “influence element” can lead to one feeling the need to take more risks especially in the romantic department.
For the FEMALE EARTH, this energy indicates a love match for the month. Connection, dating & meeting new people favors you this month. Be safe and take necessary precautions to keep your self healthy especially with the indication you may feel more "risqué" with your bedroom activities.
Metal- Metal controls wood, Wood is metals WEALTH element: The metal day master can continue to expect financial opportunity and success. Like last month you have the opportunity to see a time of prosperity with the dominate element being your wealth. Continue to put in the work & enjoy the success you've worked hard to create. Be cautious of overfilling your schedule with too much work. Sometimes our wealth element also means we work hard without taking time off & you may enjoy it so much or get so wrapped up you forget to make time for yourself. It can also mean you take on more work shifts or work overtime. What good is success or a good paycheck if you don't have time to enjoy it a little. Maybe start to plan a future vacation.

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
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 you're more visible or "seen". Make choices carefully during these times. Combining with the Goat & Pig make more of the wood element. So keep aggression in check & look for Dog days to create fire & burn off excess wood element..
Zodiac Combinations & Interaction-
Some of the Zodiac signs pair together to make special combinations. These combinations make an element that dominates the energy.
Pig & Goat: More wood element for those that have the signs of Pig & Goat. Not much more to say that hasn’t already been said about all this wood energy. Expansion and growth is the key to navigating this months energy. Inner work and growth will go a long way this month and even year.
Dog: Combining with the DOG creates the element of FIRE , Sometimes when the zodiac combine they make an entirely new element. This is the case with the Rabbit & Dog combo which again make Fire. This can sometimes mean a dramatic or drastic change since this completely changes or transforms things in your life also. Sometimes it means you see situations turn around, financial gain or suddenly moving or meeting someone new. It really depends how fire affects you. (See day master elements above)
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.
Tiger & Dragon : The presence of Tiger & Dragon again further enhance the wood energy of the season of spring. This combo is the most dominate and can indicate connection and financial opportunity if the work has been put in, it may be time to collect. If wood is your wealth element, you could see significant opportunities or financial benefits this Month.
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)
One more month of the clashing energy is present for the MONKEY, a true clash may occur for the Earth monkey. Now’s the time to make a significant change if you've been contemplating one.
A couple of the zodiac signs combine in a way the doesn't clash or benefit you but rather effects the way you feel & decisions you make. Generally these are called "harms" or "punishments", but are more about the possibility of self sabotaging behavior, falling into old patterns of thinking and behavior that can be harmful. In others words, we harm ourselves.
In BaZi Rat and Rabbit "punish" each other. Depending where it falls in you BaZi (year, month, day or hour) can indicate how this can affect you. A majority of the time this indicates problems with your relationship with your Mother but can also indicate issues with your Father. Usually it comes out as a love/hate, can't live with 'em, can't live wit 'em type energy.
Other times it's showing us we need to be aware of our surroundings & people we hang out with, because we may put ourselves in a situation where we may end up with regret. The connotation of the 2 "Peach Blossom" zodiacs can indicate a "hook up". Should you find yourself in this situation make sure it's totally consensual & take necessary precautions. Avoid anyone you don't feel comfortable around.
