Water Monkey Month
August 8-September 8
Here are the Animal Fortunes for the month of the Water Monkey. To get the most out of the fortunes you’ll want to know all four of your pillars which are based on your birth date and time. If you don’t know them get in touch. Each of the four animals of your BaZi correlates with an aspect of your life.
Has to do with your physical body and what you do with it, ancestors, family traits. In terms of luck the year pillar is said to take the first “hit” of any event, good or bad.
Relates to career, work environment, training, age mates and peers, siblings, exes and your modus operandi
Yourself and true partner; your immediate environment and home life.
Your innermost self, your children, future, hopes and dreams.
You’re back baby! And – your friends are here. You probably don’t realize it yet but it’s safe to be happy. Why not?! You might think of this month as the beginning of a new cycle, especially if you’re a Yang Water stem person. But even if you’re not, the energy needed to float your boat into the Metal Rat year is finally arriving. Let the talk and emotions flow. It will make you feel better I promise.
Hint: Respect the Snake and those who come clean
You’ve got the kind of support that comes from a big brother or father this month which makes competitors fairly benign. You may find yourself vacillating between frugality & overspending; frivolity & calculation. Your words may come across as over emotional or sharp so consider them with care. Don’t drive away allies.
Hint: The tongue that kills can resurrect too.
Metal season can be tough on a Dog and it’s just starting. Your achievements and products are in demand and you’re probably working longer hours. Support is diminished but you will still meet your deadlines if you stay hydrated and pay attention to your health. Take breaks.
Hint: The best thing you can do for yourself this month is take deep breaths. Keep breathing.
The Monkey month bursts the balloon. You’re the one who feels the Pig year waning first. Use these next three months to reinforce existing support systems or make new ones. Prepare for landing. Ask for favors. Use your power to put things in place for next year. You don’t want to be trying to do that in November. Don’t waste your love on people who don’t get you.
Hint: Your free ticket is expiring but you can still use it now.
Rats are just getting started this month with new projects and more attention than they’ve had in awhile. Your usual m.o. of waiting for others to reveal their position before you reveal yours will come in extra handy this month when there is so much talk and emotions are running high. Give good counsel. Resist the urge to obscure your meaning with too much metaphor.
Hint: Just come out with it if anyone asks.
You can feel your power rising, can’t you? Are you ready to come out of the background? Prepare to assume a new position; one more public than you are used to. You’ve got the facts. You can control the Water. More allies are on the way. Toughen up a bit but don’t lose your sensitivity. We need your common sense for guidance.
Hint: Go ahead. Surprise us all. Start showing your stuff.
How’s that new relationship going? Monkey month may bring some turbulence that spills over into a real breakup in November. Knowing you – you’ve already seen this coming. Do you know what you want? Do you know what to do to get it? Are you going to hurt yourself again to maintain your favored position? No way!
Hint: Communication will solve this whole thing.
For the Rabbit this month is about personal authority. If you want personal growth and increased authority, take on the challenge you’ve been putting off. If you want to reshape about your reputation, you’re in a perfect position to take care of whatever is involved. Putting it off may come back to peck you in the Rooster month of September.
Hint: I’m not saying it’s comfortable/easy but it will definitely be worth it.
Old and new friends begin coming out of the woodwork. They’re available for collaborations and celebrations. Stop working and get attention out or miss the fun. It won’t change your reputation as a mysterious beast. Besides, you’ve been keeping your head down for a while now. Come up for air. Join us for a bit.
Hint: Insincere tricksters can’t hurt you. You’ll always get over it.
Given that it’s a Pig year, your theme song this month might be Lady GaGa’s Bad Romance. But it doesn’t have to be. As in all relationships, everything can be solved through communication. Emotional honesty is the best policy. That’s doesn’t mean unburdening yourself by burdening others. I know you know what I mean.
Hint: Be prepared for those irresistible Monkeys. They’re everywhere.
The hidden stem combination of Water and Fire makes for good luck in the Monkey month. There’s a self-sustaining kind of energy for Horses when the Monkey is present. You’re more independent and capable of getting a lot done. It’s the behind the scenes relationships you want to cultivate now: lovers, family, and best friends.
Hint: You’re getting more attention than you know – all the time. Believe it.
The abrupt nature of the shift from the Sheep month to the Metal of the Monkey means playing in the field is over for now. Time to get back to work if you want company. This month is stimulating to the Fire in you. If you’re job hunting look for opportunities to support the underdog. You’ve got a helpful perspective on that.
Hint: Learn to be more calculating. It won’t change your cuddliness.
