When I look at December’s energy, I can’t help but think of the very last scene of the movie ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’, where the heroine (Xiao Hu) jumped off the bridge, gliding blissfully through the mystic mountains – she was finally free.
The Yang Earth Rat month starts from 7th December. It is symbolised by the two elements: Yang Earth 戊 on top of Yang Water Rat.
The Yang Earth 戊 is usually being described by a grand majestic mountain – the Mother Nature at her finest. It has the uncanny ability to hide everything in its belly, yet appearing inconspicuous and non-threatening. Yang Earth is the element that hails TRUST. It symbolises strength, perseverance, commitment, shelter, steadfastness, faithfulness, and brute power.
Mystic mountain is where all legends begin. This is where the treasure can be found, the untold wisdom and truth reveals itself. It is a very powerful element yet full of surprises.
December can bring you a feeling of ‘being out of your depth’, yet at the same time, full of hope that something is waiting for you just around the corner.
Water is also associated with heightened emotions, so we can expect an increased sensitivity on many levels. Although the presence of Water in December continues to appear strong due to its sheer strength, it is nevertheless more disciplined and contained by the solid Yang Earth energy. Therefore, December surprisingly can be a month of productivity. You may finally find the focus and strong motivation to power through the task you have been planning at the start of the year.
The hidden element of the Yin Water 癸 this month can also add another layer of mystery, complication and imagination into the mix. Just like the cloud covering the Sun, or the mist hanging over the mountain range, our vision is temporarily being blocked and make it hard to see .
Meanwhile, this can be the very reason that certain guidance and insights are being revealed for self healing and self-mastery. Clarity offered at this time can be presented in a way that is extra sharp and may feel overwhelming.
This energy supports us to venture inward, explore our inner realms and discover some raw and insightful truth.
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 were born in the Year or Day of Yin Earth 己 or Yin Wood 乙 or you were born in years ending 5 or 9 (1945, 1959, 1975, 2009, etc.), then Rat is considered your Nobleman.
Nobleman means angels from heaven. When the Nobleman star is shining in the sky, any dangers present will dissolve — as the Nobleman is like your guardian angel in life. Your life is simply easier when they are around.
The Rat month is considered a CLASH month if your Destiny chart contains:
- a Horse sign in the Year pillar (1942, 1952, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014),
- a Horse sign in the Month pillar (June 5 or 6 to July 7 or 8),
- a Horse sign in the Day pillar (Get your FREE personal chart if you don’t know)
- or a Horse sign in the Hour pillar (1100-1300 hours local time).
Days to be extra careful to avoid any conflict are 17th, 23rd, 29th December in 2020.

Interestingly, many world leaders will be experiencing the Clash energy during the Month of December due to their personal Destiny charts. Expect a turbulent and eventful month on a world stage without a dull moment. Leaders whose personal Destiny Charts are under Clash include Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, Boris Johnson and Prince Williams.
When the Peach Blossom star arrives in your chart, it will bring you glamour, romance and charm. You will find that people are generally attracted to you, especially those of the opposite sex. This not only reflected in your private life but also in business relationships. As a result, your social activities tend to increase.
The animal of Rat 子 is also considered a ‘Romance Flower’ if you have Pig 亥, Rabbit 卯 and Sheep 未 symbols in your Year or Day pillar. Therefore, you are likely to achieve some heightened social status without trying or effortlessly draw people within your orbit.
If you have the animal sign of RABBIT anywhere in your Destiny chart, such as:
- Year pillar (1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011)
- Month pillar (June 5 or 6 to July 7 or 8)
- Day pillar (Get your FREE personal chart if you don’t know)
- or Hour Pillar ((0500-0700 hours local time)
December represents a time where you may experience an ‘Uncivilised Punishment‘ around relationships. This can be romantic relationship, friendship, marriage or family relationship. The holiday season can add extra pressure when dealing with the relationship dynamics under this formation.
This ‘Uncivilised Punishment’ formed between the Rat (Water) and Rabbit (Wood) refers to a ‘bite the hand that feeds you’ type of situation. For example, Water nurtures the Wood, Wood should be ‘grateful’ or ‘loyal’ to Water, because water is what ‘gives life’ to Wood. Yet in this formation, Wood is neither ‘grateful’ nor ‘loyal’ to the Water, instead, goes against the Water.
Of course, how the relationship or scenario plays out largely depends on what Water and Wood represent in the person’s Destiny chart. This type of Punishment can also bring about severe personal guilt and / or the inability to face up to something done in the past.
Dealing with Punishment is often not as difficult as you think. It can certainly stir up many uncomfortable feelings and emotions but it also allows you to explore the shadow part of you so you can heal it once for all. It is often a matter of either acknowledge certain issues within a relationship, taking the right action, or strategising your responses to certain situations and recognising the area of the problem and developing self-discipline.
