Change or Be Changed
August signifies the midpoint of the year in Chinese calendar and marks an important milestone energetically.
The Yang Water Monkey month (壬申) starts from 8th August up till 8th September. It is symbolised by two elements: Yang Water 壬 sitting on top of Yang Metal Monkey 申 and both energy are Yang.
As the Metal supports the Water element, this is a month where the rain drops become a force of Tsunami, if you are not assertive knowing where to go and what to change, you will easily be picked up by this strong Yang Water and be forced to make changes.
This Yang Water 壬 Element sits on top of the Monkey 申 (Metal) is strong, intense, and robust, many of us will feel this strong current of Yang Water, there will be times that we are confused with fiction or truth. This is because Water is associated with heightened emotions. As the Water element stores the memory from the past, the present or the future, so don’t be surprise the the emotions you are being engulfed or newly discovered within you can cross different dimensions and timelines, some can even be from other lifetimes.
Channel this imaginative energy into higher guidance and insights rather than being caught up in your usual ‘mental-loop’.
The Yang Water is also the embodiment of wisdom. This energy supports us to venture inward, explore our inner realms and discover some raw and insightful truth. The metal Monkey energy will be pushing us to drop those ‘sand bags’ we have been carrying so we can open up to the new opportunities and visions. Monkey is the ‘innovator’, so during the month of August, don’t be afraid to think outside the squares or get out of your comfort zone.
In short, the energy of August is fast-moving and dense, the best way to use its ‘highly-charged’ movement is to create self-initiated ‘changes and electricity’. To change or be changed.
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.
This is a clash month for people whose Destiny chart contains a Tiger sign (it can be anywhere in your chart). Be extra cautious on 12th and 24th of August.
If your Essence At birth is Yin Wood or Yin Earth, the Monkey is your Nobleman.
The month of August provides you with a fertile ground for learning and growing. You might want to test a different approach to better absorb the new knowledge you are acquiring, or venturing out for a new route from your usual routine, or reviewing your current project innovatively. The energy is asking for changes, ie. how can you enhance your experience by creating some changes?
The expansion usually is accompanied by certain level of pressure and disciplines, take them as signs of growth.

August can be an emotional month for the ‘cool and collected’ Metal people. The strong Water energy can bring enormous amount of information in order to change certain perception of your. At the same time, truth can also feel quite ‘uncomfortable and unsettling’ at times, especially it is something to do with your family or close relationships. Flow with this strong emotions and see where it takes you.
