It’s the Fire season where everyone and everything speeds up. We are all more active and some of us may be taking on more than we usually do. That’s what the Fire season is for.
Accordingly, I decided on the spur of the moment to take a Qi Men Dun Jia class a week ago. QMDJ is fascinating and perhaps the most elegant method I have studied. I can feel it changing the way I think as I begin to understand the connections of the systems underlying it.
In the spirit of spontaneity, I thought it would be fun to share the Animal Fortunes that I regularly include in my monthly newsletter. Get in touch if you’d like to subscribe. Predicting from a single branch isn’t as specific as a reading of your BaZi but I hope you find them useful anyhow – or at least entertaining. The Metal Horse month begins on June 6th. On your marks!
It’s your month. You know what that means – think it through. Don’t let your spontaneity turn into self-sabotage. If you can avoid getting hung up on your ideas about success I guarantee you’ll have more fun. Hint: You’ll make more progress running toward something instead of away.
Support showoffs where it suits your purpose. Offer to sign people up for another’s fan base, especially if you want to increase your own visibility. Don’t waste your energy organizing for the showoff unless the showoff shares your values. Hint: This is your month to really go for it.
Monkeys are feeling the pressure so may need a reminder that it’s going to get significantly better in August. Until then, go easy on yourself. Just keep doing your best. Talking with someone you trust will help. Hint: People who love you are always there to help. Don’t act like you don’t need it.
Like the Snake and Ox, Roosters will also feel the call of the irresistible this month. For a Rooster it’s likely to be something shiny. Cognitive dissonance is familiar territory for you. Hint: Be careful of being distracted by appearances and missing the opportunity to express what you really want.
Horse month brings a helpful burst of Fire for the Dog. If you’re a Dog with a mission, this month you’ll find you have more support than you’ve had all year. If you’re an unemployed Dog, there are good prospects this month. Look for allies. Hint: Use your empowerment for a good cause.
The Horse month brings what looks like a dilemma. You’re considering contributing your energy to someone else’s project or trying to take control of the whole thing. Control isn’t going to work out this month. Hint: It might be difficult to resist whoever is in charge here. Watch for Tigers.
The Horse tends to disperse the Rat, changing the yang to yin. Rats could be feeling rebellious and frustrated by verbal communication this month; could be accused of putting a damper on things. Hint: On the other hand, this could be a great month for writing and ideas. Time to journal.
In a Horse month the Ox becomes passionate about new knowledge. Spontaneity is attractive – as much as it ever could be for an Ox. The Horse supports you even though she won’t admit it. Don’t let that stop you. There’s an opening for a new friendship. Hint: Take a chance. The worst that can happen is that it doesn’t last.
Perhaps this month the Tiger is more aligned with Fire than Wood – unusual in a Pig year. That’s because old friends are reappearing after a brief hiatus. They want the Tiger to come out and play, also to lead the hunt. Go get ‘em Tigers. Hint: Know your intentions. It’s not sporting to toy with the prey.
In a Horse month the Rabbit easily spreads the word about his plans. In a Pig year this matters more because Rabbits find like-minded colleagues and success galore in July. Pace yourself. Take a nap if you need to. Hint: You need to maintain your energy to make the most of it.
In a Horse month the Dragon finds the support of the most yang. Being yang herself, she might mistake this for attachment or competition. Dragon’s ego gets in the way of recognizing that others think she’s great too. Hint: Your words are where your success lies this month. Choose them with care.
Horse month for a Snake will often present something (or someone) who is irresistible. Likely this has to do with the exposure of truth. Could be empowering but around mid-month the power turns precarious. Be wary of overextending yourself. Take time off if possible. Hint: This is not the peak you think it is.
