Back To Centre
The Yin Earth Goat month (己未) starts from 13th July till 10th August based on the Lunar Chinese Calendar, while based on the Solar Chinese Calendar, it started on the 7th July up till 7th August. It is symbolised by two elements: Yin Earth sitting on top of Yin Earth Goat, making July 2018 an incredibly heavy Earth month.
Depends on what Earth element represents for you in life (ie. money, power, relationships, creative expression or rival energy), it will affect you in different ways. To some of you, your perception towards certain aspect of your life will never be the same after July.
If you don’t know what Earth element symbolises in your life, you can gain more clarity via Day Pillar Report for only $35.
You may reestablish the home front to make it more cozy, more aligned with your current lifestyle, a great month for Feng Shui Alignment. You may also rediscover your spiritual beliefs and rituals in order to step into your ‘new identities’ in a very practical and grounded ways. You will also discover a deep sense of peace in your inner sanctuary, reconnect with your true nature by letting go of all that is superficial in life.
This Yin Earth energy also symbolise the Centre direction, it represents the spleen & belly as well as stomach & back in relation to our body. Therefore, focus on your Solar Plexus during meditation can be extremely beneficial. This will help you process those emotions hold in your stomach in order to move through it properly. You are likely to reflect on your past to see what is true to you and what is illusion.
So ‘Owning Your Core’ & ‘Back to Centre’ will also be the key themes in July.
Lastly, the ‘Opposite Polarities’ will be showing up for many of us. The intensified Yin & Yang polarities within the earth energy will bring out some major changes and shifts. This ‘opposite polarity’ can show up for some in the way that you may find yourself doing things at the opposite speed to your usual. For example, if you are usually a ‘fast go-get girl’, you may find yourself slowing down willingly, or that your actions are being stopped left, right and centre. The universe doesn’t want you going so fast, because you are not going to be able to receive more of yourself, centre yourself and give more of yourself out into the world. So you are being stopped and slowed to give you a chance to get that.
Equally, for those of you who are used to moving slower in life, you may find a new momentum. This could be fun and self-driven, or you have cultivated such a peace and balance within yourself that you are now ready to naturally pick up the pace.
Trust in the speed that may be showing up for you and be aware of the lesson for you.
Last month, when I was referring our life force as ‘volcano’, I was hoping it only stays as a metaphor. However, as we all knew that it manifested in a real event in Guatemala Volcano eruption in early June. In July, the magnified Earth energy will bring more earth-related imbalances such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, landslides, avalanches, sinkholes, etc.
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 your Self Element is Yang Wood, Yang Earth or Yang Metal, the Goat is your Nobleman Star. When the Nobleman star is bestowed on you, you are blessed. No matter how tough the situation is, you will be upheld and protected.
July is the month for Wood people to focus on bringing in some financial abundance and wealth. If your Essence at Birth is Yang Wood 甲, the chance is even higher, so keep your eyes wide open for any money-making opportunities.
If you have been thinking of getting into the property market, July could be a fantastic time that you finally find your dream home. Other land-related projects or business will also experience a boost of revenue.
Whatever it is that has been eating away at you, it is now time to get it off your chest. Spit it out and say what you feel. July is the month that you speak your truth, regardless it is your job, relationship or family dynamics.
If you have been living by another’s rules, religious beliefs or ways that are not for you, now is the time to explain why you will no longer abide. The people who matter and really care will not punish you for being true to yourself, but to support you in making the changes you need.
You might also want to take advantage of the ‘opposite polarities’ energy and do things out of your usual way. For example, if you are used to your sister’s criticism and have always lost in that power dynamic, in July, you may find your power in a new way to stand up for yourself, therefore change years of patterned behaviour between the two of you.
In July, you will develop the ability to recognise yourself not only in the eyes of others, but from how you feel about yourself, how you experience yourself and how you observe yourself (with compassion and kindness) from within. This is the step towards empowerment based on the acceptance of all that you are.
Earth people are serious about their responsibilities, July will teach you to look at yourself from the opposite end. It will help you to set up some new rules, boundaries and intentions towards other people.
It is an explosive time that can be full of triggers. Release the need of ‘wanting to be right all the time’ because that is not the point. Stay out of the ‘conflict’ energy and you can redirect it for tremendous growth, movement, initiation and progress instead of negativity.
If you have been travelling during the month of June, July sets a perfect tone for you to slow down and draw the energy back inward to restore and replenish. This is a perfect time to be cocooning within your sanctuary and retreat back into your creative caves.
You might also benefit from breaking with your routine completely and doing something very off-the-map.
If you have been under the weather lately, this is also a great time to heal your body, mind and soul. You will be soaking in new knowledge, ideas and inspirations during this time as well.
Depends on how the Earth element affects you, Water people can have very ‘polar-opposite’ experiences. Some of you might feel you are completely empowered by this month’s energy and become unstoppable to move forward.
On the other hand, some of you can encounter some pressure and resistance due to the magnifying Earth energy. Think creatively and re-invent yourself. Try to find the solution from the opposite end and break the old mould. This is the time to recognise your true authentic power and owning your core.
Your partner can also be the focus for the month of July.
**Everything in the universe is an ever-changing affair, including the qualities of the energy surrounding the space we live in. Flying Star Feng Shui is the only school that takes into consideration the influence of time. Therefore it is one of the most complex, accurate and powerful forms of Feng Shui. Flying stars are so called because they fly with the movement of the days, months and years. It is therefore possible to pinpoint the movement of the energy.
To simplify an otherwise very complicated practice of Flying Star Feng Shui, in each monthly prediction I will point out where the benevolent energy is located and where there is negative energy that needs to be managed. It is essential to first know the inherent natal chart of your home, as this determines the nature of the annual flying stars as well as the monthly stars. Your home’s natal chart can only be provided by a qualified Feng Shui consultant. Blindly applying any enhancements or remedies suggested in this post could well have an adverse effect.
In July, all the flying star will duplicate the Yearly stars. This means, what is good will be doubly auspicious. What is bad can be lethal.
The Heavenly blessing will fall into the Centre of every home. So if this part of your home is open and free from clutter, you will receive this auspicious energy.
SE sector contains the most auspicious energy in July with double 8. If you have your front entrance, master bedroom or living area fall into this sector, you are in for a money luck. Make sure you add an Feng Shui enhancement in here to maximize the auspicious energy.
The duplicated flying stars will make West and North two inauspicious sectors. If you have already placed some remedies in those two sectors at the start of the year, such as Five Element Pagoda, Salt Water Cure or 6-metal coins, consider double them to stay safe during July. Pay particular attention towards stomach areas and if you are trying to conceive and your bedroom is located in these two sectors, move to another room or ensure remedies are in place.
