Monthly Energy Update: September

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

Septembers here and it's crazy to think how fast 2023 is passing us by. This month celebrates the Autumn Equinox on the 23rd. It's the month of the Metal Rooster (Xin 辛 You 酉) is the zodiac sign that clashes or repels the energy of the Rabbit (zodiac sign for 2023- which is soft wood, like a flower).

The months again are showing us how the element of metal - yin metal affects our personal energy. IMO, the effects will be a bit softer than the energy in August felt.

Metal Rooster in your BaZi-

The rooster once again is at its core or essence is Yin metal- like a diamond. Small but eye catching and attention grabbing. Add the extra metal with the "heavenly stem" and you have one beautiful ring (pure yin metal) . The issue with soft or yin metal is that it can easily be covered up with the presence of too much Earth element or outshined if another attention seeker is around. Think of the way diamonds are presented to you in a store. Individually. If they are presented together it's hard to see the quality of an individual stone, and they take away from the brilliance of the surrounding diamonds. The (Xin) Metal Rooster is much the same, They should be the only (Xin- Yin Metal) in the room so they can shine their brightest. Metal Roosters are great performers, they shine in front of an audience & like the attention!

Over thinkers- The pure metal energy tends to over evaluate things, these type of people need to learn to lean into intuition sometimes. They tend not to make mistakes, but rather wait too long to make the decision out of fear of making the wrong one. This can result in missed opportunity and analysis paralysis.

Zodiac Signs:

How will this monthly energy impact me?

This energy impact you depending on where (which pillar or column) the zodiac sign falls falls in your natal chart. Remember you have 4 animal (zodiac) 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".

****For simplicity you can simply focus on the zodiac sign of the day you're born.

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:

Rooster: 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". For this month we can focus on the "San Sha" system and look at the yearly symbolic stars present for the Rooster.

Caution for the month-

Brutal Defeat: sounds worse than it is! Whoever names these "stars" wanted to inflict fear or something. - Can cause your words to be taken the wrong way, be mindful of public comments and remember the more public you are the more chance for people to misunderstand you. It could result in PR issues. This is also more of a psychological effect, you may just feel defeated easier. Positive thinking goes a long way. Setbacks occur, but it's about how many times you get up. Get knocked down 5 times, stand up 6.

Focus for the month-

Dragon Virtue and Emperor: These energies represent the ability to help in establishing yourself as an expert. Just watch what you say due to the presence of the "brutal defeat"


Snake: Keep your eyes out for opportunity that may not be so obvious, perhaps even making the opportunity for yourself.

Ox: You may feel a bit more expressive this month. Taking break and enjoying some nice things is always good self-care. The added metal can help with precision and focus, use it to help you finish up anything you have been putting off.


Dragon: Combining with the Rooster can mean a boost in creativity and knowledge. It may be month you want to focus learn something more on the creative side. Be cautious of overspending and comparing yourself to others. No need to keep up with the Jones'


These are the animal signs that make up the season of Autumn (Monkey, Rooster & Dog ). All 3 animal signs should be present to form combination to make the element of pure METAL.

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.

Monkey & Dog: The presence of Monkey & Dog with the monthly energy of Rooster create the element of Metal. This dominating combination is considered lucky and usually shows up in the form of opportunity, financial opportunity and helpful people or mentors. Take advantage when opportunity presents itself. Laser focus is on your side this month.


The CLASH animal sign! This is the animal sign that directly opposes the governing energy. This month it's the Rabbit!! Rabbit (wood) clashes Rooster (metal)


The Rabbit may have a bit of a tougher time this month. Generally a true clash- like a wood rabbit -can mean things change suddenly or move fast for you. It usually just means change. This can be a good thing if you are needing a shift in life. Another way to help aid this energy is to use this month to make a change. Clashing energy isn't always bad or scary

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 is (water, wood, fire, earth or metal). Then read about the element cycle and 10 Gods theory here

Refer to this column only

Water- Metal produces water, metal is water "resource" - For the water day master you can look forward to feeling more supported this month. Your resource element generally denotes supportive energy around you, good health and higher intuitive abilities. Trust your gut this month especially for the YIN water day master.

Wood- Metal controls wood, Metal is woods "influence" element: Seeing your influence element can mean feeling a little more stressed than usual, after all it is the element that controls you. For the single, female wood day master you have the ability to find love this month as the "influence" element represents the "husband". However for the male DM you have the ability to focus on career opportunities, but it can also end up being a little more stressful in terms of work, following regulations, or company policy as the influence element also represents these topics.

Fire- Fire controls metal, metal is your wealth: The wealth element is always a welcome sign although it's not always about money but also represents effort. Effort doesn't always translate to money. For the single, male day master you can look for matches this month. For the married one the saying goes "Beat your wife, you beat away your wealth" - this doesn't imply physical abuse but rather it means the way you treat work and your finances is reflected in the way you treat your wife. Honoring your wife is said to bring good fortune and prosperity, because the "wealth" element also refers to your spouse. More practically, in the long run it could mean a costly divorce. If you're not interested in romance right now, focus on using the wealth element energy to secure the bag this month.

Earth- Earth creates metal, metal is your "output": The "output" element is the element that represents ideas, innovation and achievements. Seeing the metal element this month helps inspire you. it also represents negation, talking and self expression. This month you may feel the effects of this by needing to express yourself but don't get caught up in arguing and trying to prove your point.

Metal- Metal is the same so it's called a "friend element" : Seeing the same element as your Day master can be generally pretty good, since it's the same element as you it usually represents popped that are similar to you ie, your friend group or peers. I usually recommend having a bit of fun with friends when you see the "friend" element. But this also goes for networking. It's also a great time for you to attend seminars, summits, conventions etc.

North- Gua 1: General use in the sector this month can help you create change if you're needing it.

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

- Remove & dispose of salt waster jars around the 5th of each month.

No renovation sectors:

No renovation sectors are areas you want to avoid digging and major renovations in for the year or month- this applies only to the ground floor of your home or ground level apartments. This energy effects the "earth"

Yearly Shas-

South (2) & Southwest (1) : Wu Ji Sha (5 Tiger Sha-2023) has the ability to cause issues when you activate the area & do renovations.

East: Tai Sui- Grand duke is present in this sector, renovations and digging can negatively impact this sector combined now with the "month breaker" - the opposing energy for the month, its an area you should avoid renovations in.

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.
