2022 CHINESE ZODIAC: SNAKE

From the way the stars are lining up for the Snake, 2022 is set to be a year of great expectations. It’s gonna be an interesting year, to say the least. You have your fair share of negative stars, but at the same time, you also have a trio of heavyweight nobleman stars. In other words, you don’t need to fight these battles alone!

A RECAP OF THE SNAKE IN 2021

Apart from a bunch of petty negative stars, the Snake had some pretty solid positive stars in 2021 – the Three Stages, Golden Carriage and National Treasure. For the career professional, these three represented the opportunity for promotions. For business owners, these three represented an increase in reputation and market opportunities.

Pretty good, right? But life is not always on an upwards trajectory. As much as we would wish for it to be so, in every life, a little rain must fall. Agree? So let’s take a look at what’s in store for the Snake in 2022.

THE SNAKE IN 2022

1. MOON

Having enjoyed an uptick of opportunities in 2021, along comes the Moon which can be translated as a star of entrepreneurial ideas. I think it’s a natural progression. Opportunities literally came your way in 2021. And as you took advantage of those opportunities, your outlook may change, your mindset may shift. Suddenly, you find yourself awash with ideas that you are absolutely itching to try out! Which is great! But try not to rush things too much because there are some warnings to be found in the negative stars.

2. PIERCING ROPE

The Piercing Rope is a star of external pressure. It could be political pressure, economic pressure, or even societal pressure. It creates FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). So you find yourself feeling like you are constantly in a hurry or perpetually trying to play catch up. Which leads us to…

3. DEATH GOD

The Death God star represents extreme workload. But isn’t it a given? You accepted the promotion in 2021, naturally, your workload will increase. Or, as a business owner, you took on the new opportunities and therefore, again, the workload increases! Therefore, this star is a warning of time and energy management.

4. HOOK SPIRIT

While you focus your energies in pursuit of new opportunities, be careful. The Hook Spirit sounds a warning that there are problems from the past that needs to be resolved. Basically, issues that have been swept under the rug are resurfacing. The Hook Spirit is telling you this: before you rush helter-skelter towards new opportunities, you must make sure that your own house is in order.

5. GREAT ASSEMBLY

In particular, pay attention to your own internal workflow, processes and accounting practices. The Great Assembly is trying to tell you that there are loopholes that need to be plugged. It represents stolen or lost wealth caused by your employees. Now it may not be actual physical theft. There may be loopholes in your existing system that has allowed things to slip through the cracks.

For instance, let’s say that you are a beautician. In the past, you may have allowed your employees to side-gig. But now, they are funneling your regular clients into their side gigs. So that means, income loss because you may have lost that customer. Or… someone on your payroll is not pulling their weight. So that salary becomes a loss because that person is not doing what you paid him or her to do.

When we see Great Assembly, it’s time to look into processes and plug the loopholes.

6. SKY GRACIOUS

If you find yourself feeling the effects of the Piercing Rope, Death God and Hook Spirit, it’s time to activate the Sky Gracious. This is a peach blossom and intelligence star. It is also a nobleman star. How to use this? Find someone to talk to. You could bounce your ideas off that person, or even talk your issues through with them. When we share all that stuff tumbling about in our heads, it does ease the pressure somewhat.

7. HEAVENLY YI

The Heavenly Yi is also a powerful nobleman star. Traditionally, this is usually interpreted as female noble persons in your life. The presence of both the Sky Gracious and Heavenly Yi is trying to tell you that what you’re going through is not unique. Someone has experienced it before. Seek help!

8. SIX HARM

The effects of the Piercing Rope, Hook Spirit and Great Assembly could trigger the Six Harm. This is a star of betrayal. In other words, you feel like you have been betrayed. It may not be an actual betrayal. It could be something as simple as unmet expectations.

9. TRIPLE PUNISHMENT

In technical terms, the Triple Punishment for the Snake would be the Ungrateful Punishment. At its most basic level, the Ungrateful Punishment signifies that your hard work is going unappreciated. In other words, it’s a message to change the way you present yourself or your work. Self-marketing and self-promotion is called for!

10. TAI JI NOBLEMAN

We can counter the effects of the Six Harm and Triple Punishment with the Tai Ji Nobleman. This is a powerful spiritual nobleman. It gives you the ability to let go! When you release your expectations, there can be no betrayal nor punishment. However, because the Tai Ji Nobleman is spiritual in nature, activating this star will require you to open yourself to spiritual pursuits. At the very core, it’s asking you to get centered. Which form the spiritual pursuits take is up to you. It could be meditation, or yoga, or your religion and prayers, or spiritual retreats to recharge your batteries.

SUMMARY OF POTENTIAL ISSUES FOR THE SNAKE IN 2022

Admittedly, the Shen Sha story for the Snake in 2022 seem rather complex. To summarize, the stars are telling you that help or noble people are at hand to help you with the following:

  1. Problems caused by being overly aggressive (Piercing Rope)
  2. Past issues that must be resolved (Hook Spirit)
  3. Loopholes causing wastage in your systems (Great Assembly)
  4. Feelings of unmet expectations (Six Harm and Triple Punishment)

Yet at the same time, don’t forget all those noblemen stars literally rooting for you!

ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES FOR THE SNAKE IN 2022

Having mentioned that help is near at hand, let’s take a quick look at the animal signs that can be of assistance to you in 2022. Putting aside your personal nobleman, you can also access anyone of the following three:

  1. The Monkey has actual problem-solving stars in 2022. This could come in the form of actual physical help.
  2. If you just need someone to talk to, the Rooster also has a number of powerful nobleman stars in that sector in 2022.
  3. If it is visibility you need, then the Ox would be your go-to for that particular issue.

WHERE IS THE SNAKE?

The Snake Zodiac Sign could potentially fall in your Year, Month, Day, or Hour Pillar. To plot your Bazi chart, please your Bazi Chart with this free resource (registration required) https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/.

Year Pillar

The Year pillar governs your interaction with the world – your industry, social networks, friends, and personal branding. If the Snake falls in your Year Pillar, you may find many of your contacts burdened by pressure and unmet expectations. You could be the nobleman to others. Help them get centered. Listen to their problems, help them find solutions.

I would also pay attention to your past social media posts. You may want to go through your previous postings and maybe scrub a couple that may be too offensive to others.

Month Pillar

The Month pillar governs your career and work – your bosses, colleagues, and partners. If the Snake falls in your Month, change how you present yourself, your work and your product to your superiors or clients. Similar to the Year Pillar, I would also take a look at the past social media posts to ensure that nothing controversial could resurface to bite you in the rear end.

Day Pillar

The Day pillar governs your self and your spouse. If the Snake falls in your Day, you may feel a lot of societal pressure in your marriage. I don’t know about Western societies, but here in Asia, the pressure can be overwhelming. If you are single, you feel the pressure to be married. When you are married, you feel the pressure to have a kid. Once you have a kid, you are pressured to have more. The list never ends!

The Tai Ji Nobleman is probably the best star to use here. We make like Elsa in Frozen and literally… let it go!

Hour Pillar

The Hour pillar governs your thoughts, ideas, ideals and investments. If the Snake falls in your Hour, take a look at your expectations towards your children, your staff and your investments. Are you expecting too much? Are those expectations even realistic? Again, with the Tai Ji Nobleman, take the opportunity to expose yourself to spiritual pursuits. The objective? To get centered.

The Hour Pillar can also represent your staff. In that case, you should probably pay heed to the Great Assembly and spend some effort looking into potential loopholes. Remember? Great Assembly means losses incurred by your staff.

IN CONCLUSION

With the Snake in your chart, this is a year to learn how to manage expectations. You will need to be pro-active in resolving problems and tackling obstacles. Being re-active may trigger a whole can of worms!

2022 CHINESE ZODIAC: DRAGON

It’s been a tough old year of the Ox, hasn’t it, dear Dragon? Well, I wish I was the bearer of good news with a mile-long list of positive stars in 2022. Unfortunately, a little more patience is required before the pendulum swings your way again. Think of it as a year to slow things down!

A RECAP OF THE DRAGON IN 2021

The Dragon had one positive star in 2021 – the Moon, which is a star of entrepreneurial ideas. Hang on to this, please. It’s important.

Apart from that? I would say that the most severe of the negative stars in 2021 would involve the Hook Spirit which denotes issues from the past coming back to haunt you. There was also the Grand Duke Destruction which called for a massive upheaval to how you get things done. The Piercing Rope brought external pressures to bear.

THE DRAGON IN 2022

If the Moon star in 2021 had brought you some ideas for new businesses or income pipelines, then 2022 could be the year for research and preparation.

The biggest worry would be lingering issues from 2021 being carried forward to the Year of the Tiger. Luckily, it’s really not as bad as it seems. Things are easing up somewhat. There are only two major negative stars to be wary of.

1. SKY CRY

The after-effects of a tough 2021 may leave you feeling a little more emotional than usual. This is what the Sky Cry denotes – emotional instability.

2. LEOPARD TAIL

When a person is feeling a little emotionally unstable, then there is a possibility that you could over-react or misjudge certain situations, taking offense when none was meant. This is a warning from the Leopard Tail, the likelihood that you may inadvertently ‘step’ on the proverbial leopard’s tail and basically, offend someone.

3. FUNERAL DOOR AND EARTH DOOR

As scary as these two names may sound, they actually refer to a possibility of having low immunity. Now, you would notice a lot of health-related negative stars in these forecasts. The reason is simple. Thousands of years ago when this system was created, people had very limited access to health care.

In today’s world, as long as you take adequate health precautions, these health-related stars are no longer as scary as they sound.

SUGGESTED STRATEGIES FOR THE DRAGON IN 2022

With only negative stars in your Dragon column, I feel compelled to offer some strategies to circumvent these negative stars.

  1. To counter the Sky Cry, if the emotions become unbearable, do seek out mental health help from the professionals.
  2. As for the Leopard Tail, simply avoid indulging in empty gossip.

ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES FOR THE DRAGON IN 2022

What if you simply can’t spend a year in research? In today’s fast-paced world, a year can lead to plenty of missed opportunities. So what can you do? You could borrow the luck from someone else.

To manage your energy or emotions, the Rooster has the all-powerful Emperor Star. This is a great nobleman star with the ability to dissolve most of the negative stars.

If it is actual problem-solving, the Monkey is your go-to. The Monkey has loads of problem-solving star in 2022. But just be mindful that the Monkey will be feeling particularly disruptive. So don’t be surprised if the Monkey comes up with some rather off-beat ideas for you.

WHERE IS YOUR DRAGON?

The Dragon Zodiac Sign could potentially fall in your Year, Month, Day, or Hour Pillar. To plot your Bazi chart, please your Bazi Chart with this free resource (registration required) https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/.

Year Pillar

The Year pillar governs your interaction with the world – your industry, social networks, friends, and personal branding. If the Dragon falls in your Year Pillar, you would probably find many of your friends becoming extra dramatic in 2022. Suddenly, it may seem like the whole world has turned into a Korean drama! Emotional or energy management could be the theme for your personal branding in 2022.

Month Pillar

The Month pillar governs your career and work – your bosses, colleagues, and partners. If the Dragon falls in your Month, please refrain from getting involved in office politics.

Day Pillar

The Day pillar governs your self and your spouse. If the Dragon falls in your Day, little squabbles leading to big tears may be the theme of 2022. However, who ever said that we must be dictated by these stars? There is such as thing as will power, you know? Now that you have gained awareness of these potential pitfalls, avoid them!  

Hour Pillar

The Hour pillar governs your thoughts, ideas, ideals and investments. If the Dragon falls in your Hour, you may be feeling extra emotional where your staff and children are concerned. Learn to be more objective. Not everything requires a reaction.

CONCLUSION: 2022 DRAGON

With the Dragon in your chart, this is a year to learn how to manage your emotions. Learning to view our emotions as separate from us, can be a good thing. Perhaps that is the biggest lesson from 2022. Learning to understand that we choose how we feel. That in itself may be another step to becoming you, but better.

2022 CHINESE ZODIAC: RABBIT

THE SUN IS FINALLY SHINING!

In this article, let’s explore the 2022 Chinese Zodiac stars for the Rabbit.

Every year, there will always be one particular animal branch or zodiac sign that does not have any positive stars. What it means is that you do not have any external support and therefore, need to create your own luck. In 2021, such was the scenario for the Rabbit.

But fret no more! Because 2022 is coming and help is literally on the way!

For the Rabbit, most of the negative stars in 2021 centered around mental health (Cascading Clouds and Peeling Head). These stars tend to cause emotional imbalance issues. When one is not centered, there would also be a strong possibility of relationship problems in the forms of arguments that lead to perhaps a communication breakdown (Calamity Sha and Separating Edge). Basically, 2021 was a pretty argumentative year for the Rabbit.

Now if you’ve managed to side-step all these, then great! Good for you!

Otherwise, below is one possibility how the Annual Stars could pan out for you.

2022 CHINESE ZODIAC: RABBIT

1. YEARLY SHA/ANNUAL SHA

However, if you fell prey to those negative stars, there could be some lingering issues that will be carried into 2022. This is what the Yearly Sha or Annual Sha represents. These setbacks could possibly be caused by the issues that arose in 2021.

2. SKY EMPTINESS

Resolving the above setbacks will require more than just talk. Action is called for. That is the core message of the Sky Emptiness. Without pro-active action, the Sky Emptiness may just amplify the effects of the Yearly or Annual Sha. The Sky Emptiness is also a star of overweening ambitions. But at the end of the day, circumventing the Sky Emptiness is very simple – stop talking, start doing.

3. SALTY POOL

The effects of the Sky Emptiness could also be amplified by the presence of the Salty Pool. Now, with regards to this star, the traditional masters tend to see it as a negative. By the old interpretations, the Salty Pool represents overwhelming desires and passions. They tend to equate this to sex!

On the other hand, a modern interpretation puts the Salty Pool into the positive column. Desire and passion is not a bad thing when channeled in the right manner. It can even drive you to a higher degree of success.

So perhaps let’s just call this a rather neutral star – one that you can use for your own benefit. Since the Salty Pool represents desire and the Sky Emptiness represents over-arcing ambitions. The two stars together describes a situation where you could possibly find yourself in a position where you have bitten off more carrot (pun intended!) than you can chew!

But like I said earlier, don’t worry! Help is near at hand!

4. GREAT SUN

In 2022, the Rabbit is blessed by not one, not two, but three powerful nobleman stars. The Great Sun is one of the most desirable stars in an annual forecast. It has the power to dissolve the effects of the negative stars.

5. SKY NOBLE

The Sky Noble is also a nobleman star. In this case, this star relates more to academic and exam luck – great for students!

6. HEAVENLY YI

For those of us who have left our school days eons ago, we don’t really need luck with examinations. But, we could always do with some mentor luck. Someone who have experienced what you are currently going through and literally coming into your life to show you the way. The Heavenly Yi is powerful nobleman star that can literally open doors for you!

With three heavyweight nobleman stars in your corner, you really must try to activate these stars in 2022. How to do that? Here are 3 simple steps:

Step 1: Identify the problems you wish to resolve. If there are no problems, then identify the objective you wish to attain.

Step 2: Figure out what kind of person or what type of skillset you will need from this person. Basically, you need to identify the nobleman. You can’t just activate these stars by sitting at home with your arms crossed and wait for the nobleman to suddenly just show up. We’re not talking about the Aladdin’s genie here after all.

Step 3: The most important step of them all – you offer your help first! Because in order to receive, we must first give!

7. PEACH BLOSSOM

The Peach Blossom is all about likability. So you don’t have to worry too much about being turned away by your noble people. They will like you. You just have to make sure that you offer something in return.

In summary, 2022 for the Rabbit is all about being helpful. The more you volunteer your help, the more assistance and support will come your way.

WHERE IS THE Rabbit?

The Rabbit Zodiac Sign could potentially fall in your Year, Month, Day, or Hour Pillar. To plot your Bazi chart, please your Bazi Chart with this free resource (registration required) https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/.

Year Pillar

The Year pillar governs your interaction with the world – your industry, social networks, friends, and personal branding. If the Rabbit falls in your Year Pillar, you need to get yourself out there and network. These are mentors who can help open doors for you in your industry.

Month Pillar

The Month pillar governs your career and work – your bosses, colleagues, and partners. If the Rabbit falls in your Month, don’t be shy about offering your assistance to those with whom you work closely with. If there were any arguments caused by the argumentative stars of 2021, this will be a great year to mend your bridges.

Day Pillar

Using your Nobleman stars in your Day Pillar will depend on what you want. Since it represents your spouse palace, if you are married, your spouse could be your noble person in 2022! If there are problems that you want to resolve in the relationship, the presence of the Great Sun is a wonderful opportunity to dissolve those issues.

If you are single and open to a relationship, then look within your close circle of friends. They may be able to introduce someone into your life and open the doors to a new chapter!

What if you are single and not looking? Then use these positive stars to enhance and enrich your personal relationships with those that matter most to you.

Hour Pillar

The Hour pillar governs your thoughts, ideas, ideals and investments. If the Rabbit falls in your Hour, be on the lookout for opportunities to enhance your investments. These noble people could come in the form of investment gurus who can teach you how to improve your net worth. But in order to make use of their knowledge, you must first expose yourself to their opinions in the first place.

2022 CHINESE ZODIAC: TIGER

2022 is the year the Tiger takes centre stage. Back off, Ox! The Tiger is ready to roar!

The year that was 2021 required you to be pro-active and action-oriented. The negative stars such as the Sky Emptiness and Robbery Sha were messages for you to walk the talk. There was plenty of support available for you with two awesome nobleman stars, the Great Sun and Sky Gracious. If you had activated those nobleman stars in 2021, by first becoming a nobleman to others, I would say that you are fully prepared for your coming Grand Duke year.

When used in a positive manner, the energies of the Grand Duke can literally lead to a breakthrough!

You have a pretty long list of stars in your Tiger column this year. Below is one permutation of how things could pan out.

TOP CAT! READY FOR A BREAKTHROUGH?

1. GRAND DUKE

In 2022, it’s time for you to step up and take the lead. Like it or not, you are the Grand Duke of 2022 which puts you in the leadership position. Notice the grey outline for this star? Most traditional masters consider this to be a bad star. That’s because, in the olden days, they don’t like trouble. For them, a good life is one where nothing much ever happens.

But we all know that, in order to achieve, we need to solve problems. That’s what the Grand Duke is all about. So that’s why I’ve decided to classify this as a rather neutral star. If you have the capacity to say, “Bring it on!”, 2022 may be the year you achieve your breakthrough.

2. EARTH SHA

When we use the word ‘breakthrough’, naturally it implies that there are obstacles that need to be overcome. This is what the Earth Sha represents – obstacles. The more obstacles you can decimate, the stronger a leader you become.

3. DUKE’S ARRIVAL

Your leadership in 2022 will be supported by several very promising stars. One of them, the Duke’s Arrival, can be interpreted as a star that brings you followers. After all, what’s a leader without followers?

4. HEAVENLY OFFICER

Now, if you think you are going to spend 2022 herding a bunch of sheep around, don’t worry! The Heavenly Officer represents the opportunity to connect with someone in authority, most likely a government official, who has the power to help you overcome the obstacles that are represented by the Earth Sha.

For business owners, this could mean meeting someone who has the authority to cut through red tapes for you. If you are a career professional, then this represents the chance to get certified.

5. HEAVENLY CHEF

Connecting with someone in power will require some effort. That person is not going to suddenly ‘show up’. Yes, some schmoozing is on the cards for 2022. That’s where the Heavenly Chef comes in. It promises good food and good company.

6. HIDDEN CORPSE

But don’t over-indulge too much, though! The Hidden Corpse which denotes illnesses, is hanging about.

7. INTELLIGENCE

Does 2022 sound like a lot of hard work? The Intelligence Star comes into your quadrant to provide even more support. This star enhances your intellectual capacity. Supported by the Intelligence Star, what was once incomprehensible may suddenly become easy!

But again, please remember that nothing comes without effort. So if you want to activate the Intelligence Star, you need to start exercising more of those little grey cells of yours.

8. SWORD EDGE

In particular, use that enhanced intellectual capacity to closely examine your communications and legal documents. There’s a Sword Edge hanging about which denotes potential legal problems caused by miscommunication.

The smartest way to avoid the Sword Edge?  Make sure you read through everything carefully or if you can afford it, hire a legal eagle to solve these problems for you.

9. BACK POKING

One of the natural by-product of success is envy! The Back Poking is exactly as it is named – being backstabbed by others. There are only two ways to deal with this – either ignore the Back Poking and keep moving forward and keep achieving, or don’t be a leader, allow yourself to be engulfed by the obstacles, and stay stagnated with those losers.

10. PEELING HEAD

It can get a bit lonely at the top, you know. Sometimes it may even feel like you are fighting the battle alone. When that happens, please be aware that the Peeling Head which signifies emotional issues or at worst depression, is peeking its head over the horizon.

Overcoming the Peeling Head is more about energy and emotional management. So do make time to take care of your mental and emotional health.

WHERE IS THE TIGER?

The Tiger Zodiac Sign could potentially fall in your Year, Month, Day, or Hour Pillar. To plot your Bazi chart, please your Bazi Chart with this free resource (registration required) https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/.

Year Pillar

The Year pillar governs your interaction with the world – your industry, social networks, friends, and personal branding. If the Tiger falls in your Year Pillar, you may find that the people you know are either feeling bogged down by obstacles, or suddenly you are surrounded by courageous leaders. The theme of overcoming obstacles or leadership itself could be your best bet for your personal branding in 2022.

Month Pillar

The Month pillar governs your career and work – your bosses, colleagues, and partners. If the Tiger falls in your Month, you need to start being pro-active about tackling problems. If you are going to have problems, then those issues might as well be growth-related problems instead of contraction-related problems.

Which would you rather have? So many orders that you are struggling to fulfill? Or not enough orders to keep everyone busy?

The same goes for the career professional. The only way to earn more is to enhance our own value. And the only way to enhance our value is to contribute more. How should we contribute? By contributing to growth, of course!  

Day Pillar

For those of you who are already married or in a committed relationship, the Day Pillar governs your relationship with your spouse. In this case, it’s time to sit back, relax and take the back seat for a while. Because your spouse is in the mood to get into the driving seat.

On the other hand, for the singletons, this pillar can represent self-development in terms of character. After all, our character defines our destiny. Agree? The arrival of the Grand Duke in the Day Pillar is a great opportunity to become a better version of yourself. It’s also a good time to resolve any personal issues that may be holding you back and create that breakthrough for yourself.

Hour Pillar

The Hour pillar governs your thoughts, ideas, ideals and investments. If the Tiger falls in your Hour, this would be a great year to invest in knowledge.

2022 CHINESE ZODIAC: OX

Before we jump straight into what 2022 brings to the Ox, let’s have a quick recap. How was your Grand Duke year in 2021? Did you seize the opportunity to lead? What lessons did you learn in 2021? With both the Grand Duke and Elegant Seal supporting you, have you grown in capacity and confidence?

Come 2022, you have a choice to make – influencer or lonely warrior.

THE OX IN 2022

The Ox in 2022 has got a nice balance of positive and negative stars coming into your sector. But here’s the thing – you have a conscious choice to make.

1. SURPASSING PATH

If you have taken the chance to assume the leadership mantle in 2021 with the Grand Duke, 2022 brings you the Surpassing Path which basically brings about increased visibility and social status. You were the boss! People are still looking at you!

2. RED MATCHMAKER

The Red Matchmaker is a peach blossom star. The traditional interpretation calls it the star of love at first sight. But even if you are no longer single and available, you can still use the Red Matchmaker in a positive way. Since it is basically a peach blossom star, all it means is that along with your increased visibility comes increased likability.

3. GOLDEN CARRIAGE

Most importantly, you are supported by the Golden Carriage which brings the opportunity to increase your wealth capacity. Loosely translated, the Golden Carriage is akin to people giving you opportunities.

Now to activate the positive stars, is very simple. You need to ensure that you are visible. No hiding yourself away, Ox! How can anyone bring you opportunities if nobody can find you?

However, perhaps 2021 was super challenging. And you are thinking that you would like to lay low for a while. In this case, there are some negative stars that you need to be aware of.

4. SKY SHA/HEAVEN SHA

A great recent example of the Sky Sha or Heaven Sha, is Tony Leung’s character Wen Wu in the hit movie Shang Chi. The Sky Sha depicts a lonely warrior who wanders the world with his sword, looking for fights. Nobody knows what he is fighting for.

5. LONESOME

The Lonesome star enhances the effects of the Sky Sha or Heaven Sha. Influenced by this star, there is a tendency to shut oneself away from the world and walk the lonely path alone.

6. SICKNESS

This is a minor illness star which suggests low immunity problems.

SUGGESTED STRATEGIES FOR OX IN 2022

When we look at these stars as a whole, they do tell a story. Basically, let’s first agree that every innovation begins as a solution to a problem.

In 2021, you had the Grand Duke leadership star which requires problem-solving along with the creative and innovative Elegant Seal.

So, come 2022, that idea that you’ve been working on? That IP that you have been creating? That solution that you have been developing? It is now time to bring it to the public and get some feedback. If you don’t, with the Sky Sha and Lonesome hanging around, you risk creating something that nobody wants!

WHERE IS THE OX?

The Ox Zodiac Sign could potentially fall in your Year, Month, Day, or Hour Pillar. To plot your Bazi chart, please your Bazi Chart with this free resource (registration required) https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/.

Year Pillar

The Year pillar governs your interaction with the world – your industry, social networks, friends, and personal branding. If the Ox falls in your Year Pillar, you need to make sure that you stand out from the crowd. Keep your social media presence up. Toot your own horn just a bit. It’s ok! That’s one way to use the Surpassing Path. Who knows? You may even go viral!

Month Pillar

The Month pillar governs your career and work – your bosses, colleagues, and partners. If the Ox falls in your Month, be on the lookout for new contacts who may be valuable to you in the future. The Red Matchmaker provides that instant flash of ‘recognition’.

Day Pillar

With the Red Matchmaker in the Day Pillar, singletons be on the lookout for that potential love-at-first sight. To activate this, you need to get out and about. Meet new people. Who knows which one of them will create that spark with you?

Hour Pillar

The Hour pillar governs your thoughts, ideas, ideals and investments. If the Ox falls in your Hour, share your ideas in your conversations. The right idea, connected to the right person, will get things moving for you.

2022 CHINESE ZODIAC: RAT

Before we talk about the 2022 Chinese Zodiac for the Rat, let’s do a quick recap of the year that was 2021.

By all accounts, the Rat should have experienced a pretty good year in 2021. With the Grand Duke Combination, I hope you have made a lot of new contacts and solidified new partnerships. Did you make full use of the Intelligence star to upskill? Were you able to use the Surpassing Path to enhance your social status? Did the Jade Hall help you increase the value of your assets?

Hang on to those contacts, partnership, skill, and assets. You are going to need them in 2022. Because the coming year will be what you make of it.

Unfortunately, the Rat has no positive stars to speak of in 2022. Don’t worry. The world’s not coming to an end!

Let’s take a look

CHINESE ZODIAC: THE RAT IN 2022

1. RED CHAMBER

Having been the Grand Duke’s best friend in 2021, along comes the Red Chamber that denotes sudden and unexpected romance luck. I would classify this as a rather neutral star in today’s world. While it literally means fleeting romances, it can only mean that some of the contacts you made were just temporary in nature. Without extra effort on your end, these contacts or network may fade away.

2. PRISON

When your contacts fade away, achieving break-through may become a little more difficult. That is what the Prison star is trying to tell you. It denotes a feeling of either physically or mentally trapped. Remember! The Rat is a restless energy. This particular star will cause an inordinate amount of stress for the Rat. Look out for tendencies to be constantly churning around the same issues. When this happens, you need to take action. Prison can also mean fines or taxes. So pay attention when you are driving, parking or even to your business statutory.

3. STRESS!

The end result of this would be an inordinate amount of stress. Therefore, stress management would be key for the Rat in 2022.

4. CALAMITY SHA

Feeling stressed and frustrated, it is normal for anyone to become short-tempered or intolerant. Inadvertently, you will trigger the Calamity Sha which represents issues in your relationships with others. Again, awareness is the key here. How you manage your emotions or expectations will help you avoid the Calamity Sha.

5. GOAT BLADE

What do Rats do when they are trapped in a corner? They fight! Faced with stagnation, the Rat may be feeling a little more rash or impatient than usual.

6. SKY DOG

The Sky Dog is a wastage and loss star. This is a warning that you should not buy recklessly this year. It could also denote physical injuries, so do be a bit more careful when you undertake physical activities.

7. FUNERAL GUEST

It’s a well-known fact that stress influences our physical well-being. Managing your stress level well will help you avoid the Funeral Guest which signifies low immunity. Mask up, Rat!

SUGGESTED STRATEGIES FOR THE RAT CHINESE ZODIAC IN 2022

Now that you are aware of the potential pitfalls in 2022, the natural conclusion is that you will need to make your own luck in the coming year.

  1. To counter the Red Chamber, make the extra effort to nurture your network.
  2. Want to break out of Prison? Get yourself out of your comfort zone and meet people, create new networks.
  3. In order to slip past the Calamity Sha, make a conscious effort to manage expectations – yours and others.
  4. As for the Sky Dog, watch out for stress triggers so you don’t say anything that you may regret.
  5. Health precautions are also required with the Sky Dog and Funeral Guest hanging about.

ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES FOR THE RAT IN 2022

Alternatively… who says you really have to go it alone? You could ‘borrow’ the luck from someone else’s chart, you know!

So if visibility is what you need to move things forward, anyone with the Ox in their chart will be able to help you.

If it is actual problem-solving, the Monkey is your go-to. The Monkey has oodles of problem-solving star in 2022. But just be mindful that the Monkey will be feeling particularly disruptive.

WHERE IS YOUR RAT?

The Rat Zodiac Sign could potentially fall in your Year, Month, Day, or Hour Pillar. To plot your Bazi chart, please your Bazi Chart with this free resource (registration required) https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/.

Year Pillar

The Year pillar governs your interaction with the world – your industry, social networks, friends, and personal branding. If the Rat falls in your Year Pillar, it means that you know a lot of people who are struggling to create a breakthrough. Now comes the question – what can you do to help them? Alternatively, make the theme of ‘creating a breakthrough’ a part of your personal branding for the year.

Month Pillar

The Month pillar governs your career and work – your bosses, colleagues, and partners. If the Rat falls in your Month, you need to get yourself out there and meet more people. Most important here, is to nurture your operational network, the one that helps you get things done.

Day Pillar

The Day pillar governs your self and your spouse. If the Rat falls in your Day, stress management would play an important role in 2022.

Hour Pillar

The Hour pillar governs your thoughts, ideas, ideals and investments. If the Rat falls in your Hour, watch out for recurring thought patterns that are holding you back. Since you’ve experienced the Intelligence star in 2021, deepen your knowledge in whatever topic that you decided to learn last year. 2022 is the year to deep-dive into that particular field. That way, we let the Prison star work for you instead of against you.

IN CONCLUSION

Handle yourself with grace and you may find that 2022 is not as bad as it is purported to be.

Most importantly, remember that these stars are nothing more than accelerators or decelerators. No positive stars in 2022? So what! All it means is that opportunities are no longer given to you. In that case, why not create your own opportunities?

#60 GUI HAI (癸亥)/WATER PIG: THE GIFT OF FORMLESSNESS

Formless and mysterious, the Gui Hai (癸亥) or Water Pig is the most enigmatic of the 60 Pillars. Pictured as a mist rising from the half-frozen lake in the depths of the night, or a dark body of still water on a moonless night, the pillar that is also known as the Black Tortoise Day is one of the hardest to pin down.

Let’s try to ‘experience’ this pillar together. Come for a night stroll with me into the woods. No, we’re not bringing that lantern. That’s for wusses! But try not to bump into too many trees along the way. See that lake? It looks dark and cold, doesn’t it? See the mist rising from the half-frozen waters? That’s Gui Hai!

GUI HAI (癸亥)/WATER PIG: OVERVIEW

Being unconventional is an integral part of the Gui Hai’s identity. You tend to keep people guessing. But don’t get me wrong. You don’t strive to become incalculable. It’s not done intentionally. You just are!

The formless nature of the Gui Hai (癸亥) or Water Pig is such that it gives you a bit of a chameleon-like magic. Like the water vapours that you represent, the shape of you changes to suit your environment.

On the outside, the Gui Hai (癸亥) or Water Pig, youngest of the 60 pillars, seem to be the weakest. But don’t be fooled by that soft exterior…

GUI HAI (癸亥)/WATER PIG: STRENGTHS

  1. The formlessness of the Gui Hai (癸亥) or Water Pig pillar comes from your Gui Water (癸) Day Master. As explained, this element is seen as water vapours. Think of the clouds or the mists that changes shape with the slightest puff of the breeze. What this element has got, above all else, is the gift of subtle influence. That’s your superpower. You change minds in the most imperceptible way. Just like how droplets of water will cling to people when they walk into a mist, everyone you encounter will leave your presence with just that little bit of your influence still clinging on to them.
  2. Your Ren Water (壬) Companion Star is known as the Goat Blade. Sounds scary? It isn’t, really. This is the wellspring of your strong desire to live life on your own terms. This is what gives you that competitive edge and rebellious streak that defies conventions. It gives you the courage and ambition to take bold action. It elevates your desire to always be the best in everything that you do.
  3. Both the Gui Water (癸) and Ren Water (壬) produces your Jia Wood (甲) Output Star. This is the end energy of this pillar and it is a very important element. The straightforward and honest nature of the Jia Wood is the anchor that stabilizes your pillar. Without it, there may be too much formlessness. This star gives context to your rebellious nature. It gives you the courage to voice your unconventional ideas and the charisma to carry it off.

With so much Water in a single pillar, the Gui Hai (癸亥) or Water Pig Day Master is seldom impeded by obstructions. You are always able to find the way out – no matter how tightly you have been cornered.

GUI HAI (癸亥)/WATER PIG: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

However, so much Water can also bring some vulnerabilities. Health could potentially be an issue. The Gui Hai (癸亥) Day Master tend to be particularly susceptible to illnesses. So, looking after your physical health must be one of your top priorities.

Additionally, when your Ren Water (壬) Rob Wealth Star is vibrating at a negative level, you also tend to become easily suspicious, envious, and covetous. It’s okay when you use these feelings as a motivation to achieve your goals. It’s not so okay if you constantly give in to them without turning those feelings into action. You may end up bitter, discontented, disgruntled and begrudging.

GUI HAI (癸亥)/WATER PIG: HOW YOU PRESENT

The first impression you give would be just a tiny bit cold and aloof. But despite that, you have the gift of getting along with almost everybody. Like I’ve said, you’re a bit of a chameleon. Everyone finds it easy to get to know you. But most people would find it difficult to truly understand you.

GUI HAI, BUT BETTER

Becoming Gui Hai, But Better is simply to ‘disperse’ some of that abundance of water in this pillar. How to do that? Easy! Incorporate an element of teaching, coaching or mentoring in everything you do.

In other words, I’m asking you to use your Jia Wood (甲) Output Star by sharing knowledge.

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single pillar.

#59 REN XU (壬戌)/WATER DOG: THE GIFT OF FOCUS

Shhh! There’s a Ren Xu (壬戌) in the house. Capable of absolute focus, absolute stillness, and strength. The Ren Xu (壬戌) or Water Dog pillar is usually visualized as a tarn, a mountain lake formed in a cirque by glacial waters. In any culture’s mythology, such a lake would have been considered fey, a veritable bathing pool of the gods.

REN XU (壬戌)/WATER DOG: OVERVIEW

The Ren Xu (壬戌) or Water Dog pillar is also known as the Heaven’s Pool Water. Many of the Ren pillars have such cool names, don’t they?

While the nature of Water is to flow, Water can only be useful when it is collected. That is why, the Ren Xu (壬戌) or Water Dog pillar is considered as the best of the Ren pillars. It literally embodies the softness, the strength, and the drive inherent in the Water element.

But enough jibber-jabber. Let’s dive into the strengths.

REN XU (壬戌)/WATER DOG: STRENGTHS

  1. The standout quality of the Ren Xu (壬戌) or Water Dog Day Master is your strong sense of responsibility and ownership. The energy of this pillar begins with your Ding Fire (丁) Wealth Star. Here is your drive. Here is your awe-inspiring organizational and planning abilities. It does come with some vulnerabilities though, which we will explore in the next segment.
  2. Your Ding Fire (丁) Wealth Star produces your Wu Earth (戊) Influence Star which conveys status, power, determination, direction, and single-minded focus. Cradled by your Wu Earth (戊) Influence Star, you understand the need to build a solid foundation upon which your success rests.
  3. From your Wu Earth (戊) Influence Star comes your Xin Metal (辛) Resource Star. In your pillar, this star is precise and analytical. It also represents your ability to learn from past experiences and keep moving upwards and onwards.

Add the three together and you have the recipe for success right inside your own Day Pillar – discipline (丁), courage (戊) and knowledge (辛).

REN XU (壬戌)/WATER DOG: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

Your Ding Fire (丁) Wealth Star that is key to many of your success can also be a Achilles’ heel of sorts. It makes you just that little bit materialistic. You frequently worry about money – even when you have millions in the bank. But don’t worry. You are in good company. A few other pillars have the same vulnerabilities.

This frequent worry about finances contributes towards your drive for success. As long as you manage it well, I don’t think you need to worry too much about this.

More concerning, is the Ren Xu (壬戌) pillar’s susceptibility to repress your emotions. You naturally shy away from confrontation, often resulting in a passive-aggressive behaviour pattern that could sabotage your relationships with the other stakeholders of your success.

REN XU (壬戌)/WATER DOG: HOW YOU PRESENT

Quiet confidence is the external persona you present to the world. The Ren Xu (壬戌) or Water Dog Day Master tends to be a person of action instead of words. Many people would find you enigmatic and reclusive.

This natural reticence on your part directly contributes to how you often feel that you are misunderstood. Which leads us to the final segment, my suggestion for Ren Xu but better.

REN XU, BUT BETTER

Learn to speak up for yourself. Express your emotions instead of repressing them. Learn to tell people what you want. It may sound like such simplistic advice, but for the Ren Xu, releasing those emotions in a healthy way will do much for your overall well-being.

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single pillar.

#58 XIN YOU (辛酉)/METAL ROOSTER: THE GIFT OF ORIGINALITY

The Xin You (辛酉) or Metal Rooster pillar is literally, the sharpest tool in the 60 Pillars shed. At the risk of sticking my neck out and incurring the wrath of the other Xin Metal Day Masters, I’d say that the Xin You could be considered as the ‘crown jewels’ of the Xin Metal pillars.

XIN YOU (辛酉)/METAL ROOSTER: OVERVIEW

This pillar is likened to sharp objects such as knives or scissors or even glittering jewellery. The Xin You (辛酉) or Metal Rooster Day Master comes pre-packed with the deadly combination of both physical attractiveness and mental acuity.

Seated on the You (酉) branch puts your Xin Metal (辛) Day Master at the Thriving stage in the 12 Growth Phases. Typically, this will indicate someone who is highly attractive, capable and intelligent.

XIN YOU (辛酉)/METAL ROOSTER: STRENGTHS

The Xin Metal is typically visualized as sharp and shiny objects or valuable jewellery. In fact, the character of the word itself, ‘辛’, even looks sharp! Do you agree? This is where the originality of the pillar comes in. This ‘sharpness’ can be translated into a sharp wit, lightning quick humour, and fast action-taking abilities.

Rooted on your Xin Metal (辛) Companion Star, this represents a degree of self-confidence so strong, that you are literally born with a healthy appetite for risk.  Confident of your ability to cut down any difficulties or obstacles in your way, this talent for risk-taking alone makes the Xin You (辛酉) Day Master, an ideal entrepreneur.

This same self-confidence gives you the courage to become a pioneer in your field. More importantly, it also gives the ability to leverage on the strengths of others without diminishing your own. This mindset is a key factor in your success. Whether you rely on your own talents or harness the talents of others, you will do whatever it takes to become successful.

Your You Branch (酉), being a Metal branch, also represents your natural affinity and knack with financial matters. In this respect, it would be best if you make conscious effort to train more financial management skills.

XIN YOU (辛酉)/METAL ROOSTER: HOW YOU PRESENT

Your You Branch (酉), being a Peach Blossom star, makes you a naturally likable person. Convivial and outgoing, your social calendar is usually packed with friends and associates all clamouring for a minute or two of your time. Which leads us to your vulnerabilities.

XIN YOU (辛酉)/METAL ROOSTER: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

Your biggest vulnerability is your tendency to over-pack that same schedule. It’s ironic that this is a Rooster pillar, because many a times, you tend to behave like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. I’m late! I’m late! You’re usually pressed for time. Because you try to cram as much life as possible into every single minute.

How is that a vulnerability, you ask? Isn’t it a strength? It is! That is, until you spread yourself so thin that you end up doing a little bit of everything but not accomplishing much of anything.

Another vulnerability is your defensive bent in the face of constructive and well-intentioned critique. This is just something for you to be aware of. You tend to bristle at even the slightest hint of criticism. If it’s not a problem, then don’t worry too much about it.

XIN YOU, BUT BETTER

Don’t lose sight of your long-term goals. That would be the best way to be Xin You (辛酉), But Better. As you scramble through the day, squeezing the maximum out of every single minute, make sure that your energies and activities are all geared towards realizing your goal.

Lastly, don’t be shy about letting your creativity flow. The more you embrace your creative side, the brighter your Xin You pillar will shine.

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single pillar.

#57 GENG SHEN (庚申)/METAL MONKEY: THE GIFT OF PRAGMATISM

The Geng Shen (庚申) or Metal Monkey pillar is likened to a bar of solid gold. This reflects a very pragmatic individual who is a veritable tower of strength. A perfectionist to the core, you have the endurance to stick to your guns and stand firm when the chips are down.

GENG SHEN (庚申)/METAL MONKEY: OVERVIEW

From a technical standpoint, this Geng Metal (庚) Day Master sits on the Thriving position in the 12 Growth phases. This strong Metal is rooted and supported by its Resource element, signifying a rational yet intuitive individual.

Like all Geng Metal (庚) Day Masters, toughness and reliability is a fundamental part of your intrinsic nature. Since you are not one to easily tolerate fools, I shall tarry no longer. Let’s dig into your strengths…

GENG SHEN (庚申)/METAL MONKEY: STRENGTHS

  1. We begin by exploring your Wu Earth (戊) Resource Element. In your pillar, this Wu Earth (戊) Resource Star is capable of enhanced powers of concentration as well as great mental endurance. Supported by this star, you are given the capacity to develop your own unique yet down-to-earth perspectives.
  2. In turn, your Wu Earth Resource produces your Geng Metal (庚) Day Master and Companion star. In your case, this relationship imbues you with a very strong sense of responsibility. It is also the link to your stubborn and perfectionist streak. Rooted by this element, you take great pride in your work and your methodical approach to everything in life.
  3. Finally, the energies of the pillar result in your Ren Water (壬) Output Star. This versatile star adds a delightful layer of whimsy to an overall pragmatic pillar. Innovative, creative and resourceful, your Ren Water Output Star gives you just the right amount of flexibility to soften your naturally hard-headed approach. It brings you, the Geng Shen (庚申) Day Master, the social skills you need to connect with a diverse ecosystem of societies.

Since you are such a pragmatic Day Master, let’s sum up your strengths into the following key words:

  • The Wu Earth (戊) Resource Star brings you great mental strength;
  • Your rooted Geng Metal (庚) Companion Star adds a high degree of method and pragmatism to your intuitions;
  • Your versatile Ren Water (壬) Output Star helps you turn pragmatism into out-of-the-box thinking.

Add all three together, and suddenly, we realize that the Geng Shen (庚) Day Master is an exceptional problem solver. Which leads us to the next problem… how you present.

GENG SHEN (庚申)/METAL MONKEY: HOW YOU PRESENT

The strength that emanates from the Geng Shen (庚申) or Metal Monkey pillar is exceptionally strong. Do you often find people drawn into your life just for the sake of getting your help to solve their problems? That’s because you present as a strong leader with a caring and humanitarian streak.

Somehow, the people around you instinctively know that you have the tendency to put others first. The trick here, is to ensure that you don’t become so engrossed with the lives of others that you neglect your own ambitions and growth. While the world at large will be happy to be on the receiving end of your assistance, they will be unaware of your internal vulnerabilities.

GENG SHEN (庚申)/METAL MONKEY: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

When you are literally built ‘Ford-tough’ (all puns intended), life will tend to be just that little bit more challenging for you as opposed to others. After all, you don’t see anyone taking a sports car into jungle terrain, do you?

To be useful, all Geng Metal (庚) Day Masters must be forged by Fire. This relationship represents the many hurdles and obstacles in your life. They are there to create a better version of you.

Sometimes, these barriers can be internal hurdles that you need to overcome. You, the Geng Shen Day Master, can be rather extreme. The Monkey branch is known as a Travelling pillar. Basically, what it means is that this pillar contains some conflicting and restless energy. Point to note – your Wu Earth (戊) Resource Star craves stability above all else while your Ren Water (壬) Output Star wants nothing more than to explore the world and experience everything that life has to offer.

This push-pull between the two powerful stars is made worse with the presence of your Geng Metal (庚) Companion Star. This conundrum can create a lot of internal stress and anxiety.

You crave security. Yet at the same time, when you indulge in your flights of fancy, you are drawn to the idea of a more carefree lifestyle, one in which you are free from the shackles of responsibilities.

Which leads us to some suggestions for Geng Shen, But Better.

GENG SHEN, BUT BETTER

I will begin this segment by addressing the need for Fire within the Geng Shen pillar. There really is no going around the fact that your life will be challenging. Since there will be a constant stream of problems for you to solve, wouldn’t it be better if those problems are growth-related instead of contraction-related?

Basically, I’m asking you to choose your hard. For example. Becoming successful is hard. Being unsuccessful is also hard. Choose your hard!

Secondly, the push-pull between your need for stability and your craving for freedom. Strike a balance by using your Wu Earth (戊) Resource Star to give you intellectual and emotional stability. Train your intuition. Learn to trust it. Spiritual exercises like yoga, meditation, or even prayers and mantras can help you create that ‘centre’ to ground you and defeat those whispers of self-doubt and negativity.

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single pillar.
