As the Metal energy took a graceful bow after being on the centre stage for the last 2 months, it marks the ending of the ‘shedding phase’ of our journey and we are moving into the ‘adaptation’ and ‘adjustment’ phase during October – December so we can ground and integrate this new stream of life force.
The Yang Water Dog month starts on 9th October according to Chinese lunar calendar. Being strengthen by the same Yearly energy, you will find this dog can be quite persistent and will continue to dig deeper until you are ready to face the reality, whether you like it or not.
Some jaw-dropping secrets, revelations and light-bulb moments will continue to show up in all kind of relationships. You will find some old things that you tried to turn a blind eye on in order to keep the peace is hard to hold onto anymore. This month, it will be growing increasingly uncomfortable so you will have no choice but to deal with it properly. For example, it could be your boss at work or it could be that flatmate you have been putting up with for years. The question you should be paying attention to is: “ What is your irritation trying to tell you and what are you going to do about it?” The conclusion can arrive much more effortless than you think if you have the courage facing the truth.
The Yang Ocean Water sitting on top represents anything that from the past, the present or the future, so don’t be surprise the facts you are discovering could cross different dimensions and timelines. There is no doubt that you will be feeling the push of this Tsunami water, however, if you allow yourself to take stock, you will be taking great advantage of the healing ability of this water.
The Dog embodies the meaning of Spirit, it is mysterious and profound and it represents the legs and feet in our body. Combined with the influence of Yang Water, it incites an inner spiritual movement, the message is loud and clear ‘it is time to take a step and move on’. If you get triggered by something negative, pay attention to the area that feels restricted, we are following through with what we recalibrated last month and integrate the details with discipline intentions.
October is a month to review the facts that have been unearthed and make necessary adaptation and adjustment in order to calibrate this new part of you rising. Because of the absent of the Wood element, it might not be the best month for creativity or starting new creation.
Each month, I outline the energy dynamic so you can be aware of it and therefore feel empowered. The aim of this is to heighten your awareness and ride the wave, especially at difficult times. At the same time, actively seeking solutions to minimise the conflicting energy is the best strategy to managing any challenging issues. Take advice from the below predictions or seek out a 1-on-1 Destiny Profiling session to prevent any major collision.
If you have a Dragon anywhere in your Four Pillars of Destiny chart, this is a clash month for you. If it is located in your Day pillar, it is most sever. It will affect your house, your job, your money, your relationship, your health, etc. Carry a jade pendant of Rabbit in your keychain or inside your purse.
Last 2 months has been a time of unearthing and deep feeling for you, emotions such as irritation or frustration may have knocked off your balance. October is the month to look after your health. When out of balance, Wood may experience muscle spasms, headaches, vision problems or stiff joints and arthritis. Make sure you take time out to move your body and stretch. Martial arts, weight training or dance are likely to suit you rather than yoga.
In Chinese Medicine, the organs governing the Wood are the liver and gallbladder. Practice healthy eating is key for the Wood people, such as eating organic fruits and vegetable instead of heavy, dense and processed food.
Your liver will love these foods: Lemons, Dark leafy greens, Salmon and Almonds. Drink some Dandelion root and Peppermint tea will also help to strengthen your live. My favourite brand is Hilde Hemmes Herbals
Water element, although puts out Fire, plays a critical role towards Fire’s livelihood – it provides the root of aliveness moment to moment. If you have been feeling out of it for the past few months, the strong Yang Water in October will make you feel finally you are bouncing back to life.
Any new dreams or visions you have birthed inside you recently are really going to be working hard between October and December. This is a time of magnetic birth and new energy. These dreams will emerge faster if you are adapting with changes and consciously focusing on what you want to manifest.
Create heightened awareness around rituals, expressions and desires to ensure you have the physical, emotional, and spiritual support you need during this transition.
October brings you deep connections that is beyond time and space, it will warm your heart and make you realise what life on earth is truely about. It will also place focus around community and ignite a strong sense of belonging. Our heart has intelligence and wisdom that sees well beyond the surface of life, to the energetic essence in all moments.
This month is also a magnetic month for wealth-creation. Money opportunities are easy to come by especially if you are willing to adopt some new ideas or new gifts.
Metal people is a master at meeting life where it is and rising above it. Metals weather life’s ups and downs without getting too ruffled. For the last two months, Metal people has been sitting crossed legged busy downloading those cosmic guidance and wisdoms.
October is the month to get out of your head and get into action. Gather those theories, formulas and new talents you have received, it is time to practice them without trying to be perfect. Releasing the need to be perfect is an important lesson for Metals.
If you have been shedding your outer layers during the Metal months, you will see results in October. The intelligence you have embodied within your own inner knowing will manifest in a way you would have never anticipated. You might suddenly realise that you are quite powerful.
Your inner knowing is the only compass you can rely on while you are journeying through those terrains. Your external surrounding will shift and change, but as far as you are rooted firmly into your being, you will be led to the opening towards to the ocean.
There could be some external pressure coming from the family. Tread carefully. At the same time, you might see some old acquaintances in a very different light.
