What do the Metal & Wood Element represent for you this month?

If you are YIN or YANG-

WOOD- metal can instigate a promotion and status, and the wood is about social engagements with friends, family, & colleagues   If Metal & Wood is an unfavourable element, you may be under pressure from friends & family commitments.

FIRE– this month metal represents your money month, and the wood is about new ideas, support, study & health. If Metal & Wood are unfavourable, be mindful as you may make wrong choices concerning finances.

EARTH– the metal brings bout your Midas touch, you are shining this month, the Wood may indicate a promotion, status, or recognition.   If Metal & Wood are unfavourable, you may be in trouble with the law because of your decisions. E.g., Speeding fine.

METAL– a sociable month for you, with financial success. If Metal & Wood are unfavourable, you may find yourself with your hands in your pockets, always paying the tab on family & friends.

WATER-the Metal brings about new ideas, study, and resources, whereas the wood will bring about a busy month achieving success.   If Metal & Wood are unfavourable elements, take extra care of your health and you may be rundown.




The sectors that need to be looked after are:

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

and the

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