March 2017 Energy Forecast!

The Rabbit Month




        


The month of St. Patrick's Day: Who is St. Patrick?

Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Much of what is known about Saint Patrick comes from the Declaration, which was allegedly written by Patrick himself. It is believed that he was born in Roman Britian in the fourth century, into a wealthy family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. According to the Declaration, at the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Gaelic Ireland. It says that he spent six years there working as a shepherd and that during this time he "found God".

The Declaration says that God told Patrick to flee to the coast, where a ship would be waiting to take him home. After making his way home, Patrick went on to become a priest.
According to tradition, Patrick returned to Ireland to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity. The Declaration says that he spent many years evangelizing in the northern half of Ireland and converted "thousands". Patrick's efforts against the druids were eventually turned into an allegory in which he drove "snakes" out of Ireland (Ireland never had any snakes).
Tradition holds that he died on 17 March and was buried at Downpatrick. Over the following centuries, many legends grew up around Patrick and he became Ireland's foremost saint.



Wearing of the green

On St Patrick's Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the "wearing of the green"). St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. This story first appears in writing in 1726, though it may be older.

During the 1790s, green would become associated with Irish nationalism, due to its use by the United Irishmen. This was a republican organization—led mostly by Protestants but with many Catholic members—who launched a rebellion in 1798 against British rule. The phrase "wearing of the green" comes from a song of the same name, which laments United Irishmen supporters being persecuted for wearing green. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the color green and its association with St Patrick's Day grew.



March 2017 is the month of the Yin Water Rabbit and the trigram 7-Dui Metal. This is energy fuels (metal star to water stem and wood branch), making this a month for growth and potential.
The Rabbit :

The rabbit is the soul of graciousness, good manners, sound counsel, kindness and sensitivity to beauty. The rabbit is also soft-spoken and diplomatic. We may notice more of this type of energy from President Trump this month.  I believe he demonstrated this temperament last night with his first speech to congress. The rabbit month is a perfect time for POTUS and congress to see eye-to-eye.

The rabbit is lucky in business and all kinds of monetary transactions. This bodes well for any business deals especially since the 8-money star resides in the house of networking and potential income. However, pay close attention, as the rabbit has ways of getting what it wants at the expense of others. In other words, be aware of those who try to meet your every need. This is how the rabbit energy strikes and collects his winnings. If your dealing with a business transaction be especially vigilant with contracts before signing.

Taking things slower this month is the norm when it comes to the energy of the rabbit. Be deliberate, cautious and use your discretion. This is especially so as the rabbit notices every mistake made along with any progress too. The rabbit energy however does offer a sympathetic ear for your woes.


Water Stem:

The heavenly stem this month is the element of water.  This element is associated with the kidneys and bladder so be mindful of these organ systems this month. Hydrate daily and stick with purified water consumption.

The water element bodes well for effective communications and the ability to influence others. With water in its yin polarity, there is a gentle nurturing aspect when it comes to discussions with others. This blends exceptionally well with the rabbit's reserved energy.

The water influence this month makes it easier to notice things that will become important so you can accurately gauge future potentials. Water has an uncanny way for making people desire what they desire, thus achieving goals in a positive manner. Flexibility and yet assertive in nature, the water element this month can assist in turning your plans into reality.


Dui Trigram - 7 Metal:

The 7 - metal star represents several dynamics. First, the element of metal is guided by strong emotions that are rigid and resolute. Metal is about pursuing objectives and goals with intensity and little hesitation. Be prepared to sustain your convictions this month and sticking to the task at hand until you succeed. Methodical and organized approach to matters is the way to go with this element. Be prepared to map your own destiny and with little outside assistance. Albeit metal can be rigid, it can also conduct electricity and power that can be felt by everyone.

The trigram Dui represented by this star is yin in polarity and takes on a creative and playful energy like that of a child. Therefore, try to see things through the eyes of a child. Look at everything as if you have seen it for the very first time. This is the way to creating great joy in your life. Take time to do what you love whether that is playing a round of golf, swinging on a swing, playing your favorite instrument, movie night or game night. Any of the aforementioned will easily awaken the child within and tap successful into this trigram.

Albeit this star has fun aspects to it, in this current cycle of energy it activates a great deal of the negative. This star takes the position of the central palace in the loshu making its' energy known to all occupants in the home. Here are some of the negatives to be aware of this month:
  • Fighting amongst females
  • Injury by metal
  • Online fraud
  • Violence
  • Gossip
  • Layoffs

Since the center is represented by the element of earth, this star is naturally growing in strength. Therefore, place a virtual water cure in the center of the home for the month of March.

The Remaining Stars:

Networking and potential income or job opportunity is strong this month. Placing strong earth or fire in the northwest will help to boost this energy along with moving water. Don't hesitate to invest in real estate options, as the energy bodes well.

Career focus this month should be about new projects and ideas to build and grow. There is a natural fueling of this star here and especially bodes well for males. Watch out however for legal challenges and or extreme windfalls that will need tending to. Add some fire to the north sector to keep this star under control.

Transformation is possible this month but only if you take the time to read influential books that build upon self growth and wisdom. Daily meditation and contemplation is a must for this star to blossom. Adding the element of metal to the northeast is perfect to fuel this auspicious star.


Family can be intense this month causing a break. The feet are very vulnerable along with the liver and gallbladder. This energy is most vulnerable for older males. Legal issues can also arise and overall chaos. It is best to keep the eastern sector quiet this month and ring a bell frequently to break up this negative qi.

Wealth & Windfalls is probable with the auspicious star of leadership, networking and heavenly blessings. This star is notorious for bringing new opportunities and bodes well for both female and male. Adding fire and earth to the southeast bodes exceptionally well.

Goals & Vision is draining for this month. This star can be nagging when it comes to getting your goals in order and following through. Eyes and chest area can be vulnerable too with this star. Unfortunately this negative energy is fueled heavily and therefore is in need of strong metal. Place metal element in the south portent.

Relationships require the influence of theater and good books as a form of entertainment. Writing or reading your favorite poetry together is a winner this month. Add fire to the southwest and fuel relationships with a creative literary flare.

Fun is what you make of it this month. There is plenty of illumination with this star and one should take advantage of it. Be clear as to what you want to engage in for your adventure and then go for it. Add virtual water and wood to the west this month and have a blast!

*Note: The aforementioned recommendations are on a general scale verses a personal one. All cures can be implement the 6th of March and removed by April 4th.


Yoga Practice for March:


This month the energy is yin and fluid. Therefore, it is best to take on a practice that works mainly the sacral chakra or water qi. Go slower but move like water. Be creative in your practice rather than just demonstrating the pose. The following are some poses to incorporate this month.

  • Triangle
  • Child's
  • Cobra
  • Wide angle seated forward fold
  • Cow face
  • One legged king pigeon

Happy March!

Daily 4 Pillars Astrology - Yin Fire Pig Day!



Today, the yin fire stem combines with the pig branch. Fire and water oppose one another requiring the element of wood to ease the pressure. Therefore, it is important to be resilient and strong in your actions today. Think about how you can build upon ideas or projects in motion. Further growth is a perfect wood quality to balance the otherwise tension created between the fire stem and water branch today.

The fire pig is intense when it comes to emotions. There is a tendency for people to be pigheaded in their demeanor today so it is important to trust your skills and be steadfast. Be generous with your time and resources today as it will pay off tenfold.
