Summer has begun in the northern hemisphere! The month of the Fire Snake arrives on May 5th (or May 6th in most of Asia, Australia, and New Zealand) as the sun enters 15° Taurus on May 5th at 11:19am PDT. The Snake month marks the start of summer in the Chinese solar calendar. In the Flying Star Feng Shui chart for May 2023, star 5 flies to the center. Known as the star of misfortune, its presence this month asks us to be conscious of our intentions, actions, and their consequences.
April 5th takes us into the month of the Fire Dragon, the last month of spring and the third month of the Water Rabbit year in the Chinese solar calendar. In the Flying Star Feng Shui chart, monthly star 6 of authority takes center stage, bringing the influences of the Heaven trigram.
March 6 takes us into the Wood Rabbit month, the second month of the Water Rabbit year. We’re now in the height of spring in the Chinese solar calendar, with Wood element at its strongest and the Rabbit, a Yin Wood sign, in the year and month pillars.
February 4 takes us into the beginning of spring and the start of the Water Rabbit astrological year. We’re now in the month of the Wood Tiger, a powerful time of new beginnings, with both annual and monthly environmental energies we refer to as Feng Shui shifting into new directions, affecting our environment and immediate surroundings.
