December 7th, 2021, brings at 5;59 am and ends on January 5th at 5:16 pm.

The month is Yang Metal on a Water Rat.

It is nearing the end of the Chinese solar year; we still have another month to go as Febuary  the 3rd 2022 is the end of the Yin Metal Ox Year. Ironically January is also a Yin Metal Ox month, which amplifies the energy of the year. More on this next month.

The month of December though is Yang Metal Rat, which is like the energy of 2020. Climatically this month is a very cold and wet month with the strong water element present. Therefore, anticipate a wetter season in the southern hemisphere and a colder winter in the northern hemisphere.

The Ox in the year and the Rat in the month also form half a Water season (Pig, Rat, Ox), therefore, anticipate more floods, mud slides, and unstable earth, especially in the Northwest or East direction of the globe or a country.

The Star 4 takes up residency in the central palace of the Lo Shu chart this month indicating the Wind Trigram, which can bring about server weather patterns, cyclones, hurricanes, and tornadoes.

The Star 4 (wood) also represent relationships, the eldest daughter, adultery, and sex scandal and as the Star 6 (metal) resides in the central palace this year this can bring out scandals concerning people in power, governments, law, military, and CEO’s causing lawsuits.

The Rat is also a Romance Flower or Peach Blossom; therefore, it can be a very emotional month, but also a month of beauty and relationships. So, be kind as some relationships can be tested and others can be blooming. Last year’s energy would give you an indication of what to expect this month.

As it is also the festive season, emotions can run high especially as families get together, as some will have not seen each other for quite some time and others will have another lonely festive season, depending on your country’s restrictions. I’m anticipating this will be the last year of such restrictions globally as next years Tiger energy brings in the feeling of joy, as the Tiger is the beginning of the Fire Combine, and fire represents joy and happiness.

These last two months of the year energetically can be challenging and with so much division and adversity in the world today remember to be kind, inclusive, sharing, and forgiving in this festive season.

“Living life on my own terms, in my own lane makes so much sense to me – and it means I’m a winner of so much more than those who just want to be chief rat!” – By Leanne

It is recommended that you take extra care this month and carry the charm of an OX as it is friends with the Rat in Chinese Astrology.

Combinations with the Rat-

The Rat the Ox are best of friends in Chinese Astrology, therefore, anticipate a smoother month, especially if it’s on the Day you are born.

The Rat combines with the Monkey and the Dragon forming a Water Element Trine combination- what does Water represent in your chart? Is it money, intelligence, resources, power, or self?

Health blog from a TCM aspect for December  2021

December is the month of Yang Metal on Water Rat.

This is the energy of 2021 in general. “Yang Metal” is the colon, large Intestine, navel, and the lungs while “Water Rat” is the bladder, the ears, and also the kidney chi.

We will be expecting more gastrointestinal as well as Kidney related issues this month. With the lift of restrictions, more people are hosting functions and gatherings. Thus, it’s not uncommon to see clients experiencing overeating issues as well as having late nights out.

In Chinese Medicine, the large intestine is in charge of the passage of food as well as the partial absorption of the nutrients. If you overload the digestive system, the large intestine will suffer, resulting in abdominal pain, nausea, constipation, or diarrhoea. In order to keep the health of your digestive system, please remember the 80% rules – only eat 80% of the capacity of your stomach. In order to achieve this, you need to eat slowly and chew 20 times before you swallow your bite. If you happen to overeat, please drink some mandarin/lemon peels tea to aid digestion.

Also, always sleeping late will damage the Kidney energy, causing dark eye bags, hair loss, ringing ears, frequent urination and even issues related to the reproductive system. In order to keep the health of Kidney energy, we should avoid late nights, regularly taking walnuts and cashews, and have bone broth once to twice per week.

The sectors that need to be looked after are:

East –representing ill- health & fertility- 6 coins are recommended as a cure for this direction,

and the

Northwest –represents difficulty, obstacles & destructive energy- 6 metal bells or a 6-metal piped wind chime is recommended to disperse negative energy.

On a global scale the countries that lie in the East & Northwest of a country/state can anticipate natural & climatic disasters.

AOVID disturbing the land, digging, and renovations in these sectors for the month as it can lead to money loss, and misfortune.

Take extra care if these energies fall into your bedroom, front door, or kitchen.
