Coming To Light
The Yang Wood Rat (甲子) month starts from 7th December. It is symbolised by two elements: Yang Wood on top of Yang Water Rat. As the Water element nurtures the Wood, December contains very strong Wood energy.
Yang Wood is symbolised by the tall trees, expansive, mighty and majestic. They stand tall striving for light yet they are also firmly rooted into the ground. December will bring the determination and will that surpasses all limits.
The key essence of Yang Wood is its singular focus on progressive growth. When this energy is strong, we tend to be fearless, bold and unapologetic. No more excuses, we just get things done, find solutions and initiate changes.
Creativity is also being held in the centre of this element, therefore, during the month of December, you will notice the urge of pursuing your creativity expression will be extra strong.
The Yang Water Rat sitting underneath will ensure whatever that is coming to the light derives from a place of wisdom and knowledge. This energy supports us to venture inward, explore our inner realms and discover some raw and insightful truth. It is time to release those burdens we have been carrying that are not ours, instead, we are invited to open up to the new opportunities and vision. December’s energy helps us to see the bigger picture of what we want to create for our future.
The Water energy also gifts us with the most vivid imagination and highest guidance and insights. It is the perfect time to stay vigilant of our sovereignty and allow self healing and self-mastery taking place.
The Yang Wood 甲 in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) represents the Liver and Gallbladder. Both organs help determine how many nutrients will go the rest of the body and how many will stay in storage. In December, your body will love these food to cleanse and support these organs : Lemons, Dark leafy greens, Salmon, Almonds. Peppermint and Dandelion root tea are also great for a healthy liver function.

If you feel a certain frustration and anger towards to your current situation, December is a great time to initiate changes. Healthy Woods know how to move anger through their bodies and use it to their advantage, ie. creative expression. However, don’t be distracted by the external world or other people’s opinions.
