January 2019 is a Yin Wood on an Earth Ox month and begins on the 5th @ 11:41 pm.
Happy New Year and welcoming 2019 on the Georgian calendar.
As Chinese metaphysic is guided by the solar calendar or the Hsia calendar, we are still in the energy of the Earth Dog which ends on the 3rd of February and, then we welcome the Year of the Earth Pig on the 4th of February @ 11:16 am.
Yin Wood is like the gentle saying of the grass and the Earth Ox is hard working with perseverance and is the end of the water cycle….
In the 5 elements of Chinese metaphysics, the Wood controls the Earth, therefore this month can also bring about turbulence, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, building collapsing and sinkholes.
Last month we experienced quite a few water disasters on a global scale from Indonesia, to the Philippines, India, Vietnam, Iraq, Colombia, Saudi Arabia, Northern Australia and even in Victoria and NSW experiences mass flooding’s.
I mention in last month’s forecast about, “The Water Rat is Yang, and is also strong water, bringing with it more water disasters on a global scale with blizzards and colder climate especially in the Northern Hemisphere. “
The OX is hardworking, serious, goal-oriented, and steadfast.
The OX is also part of an Earth Penalty – the Earth Penalty is made up of the goat, ox, and the dog. As we are still in the Year of the Dog the Ox brings about half an earth penalty…therefore for those who have a Goat in their Chinese Astrology – Four Pillars of Destiny chart or Bazi, take extra care if Earth isn’t your favourable element. Avoid extreme sports, climbing mountains and overindulgence in sugary foods. Also, take extra care between the hours of 1pm-3pm (Goat hour) and the dates of 10th & 22nd of January as they are goat days.
On the health aspect of the Yin Wood on Earth Ox month Carrie from Healing Pond Health Centre in Box Hill North says:
Yin Wood is liver, neck and spine
Earth Ox is abdomen and spleen
These 2 elements are in conflict with one another therefore health in these body parts/ organs are challenged this month
From TCM theory, liver in charge of tendon as well as your emotion. If the liver energy is stagnant people would suffer from muscle/tendon stiffness/soreness, e.g.: neck & shoulder stiffness /soreness. When Liver energy is too strong, it would be overacting on the spleen and weaken its energy. People would be presenting abdominal cramps/bloating, diarrhea, food intolerance, water retention etc.
To prevent these, happening to you its best to manage the stress level and tonify the spleen function. Some mint and rose tea can help to sooth the liver energy and Some herbal dietetic method can apply to your diet as suggested by your health practitioners.
Therefore, extra care is needed in these areas of your body. You can contact Carrie at http://www.healingpond.com.au.
