September 8 takes us into the month of Metal Rooster. We are now in the middle of autumn in the Chinese calendar.
The Metal Rooster brings a much-needed feminine energy into what’s been a very masculine year of the Yang Earth Dog. We’re in for a social month as the Rooster is also a “Peach Blossom” (a star of romance) in Chinese Astrology. Yin Metal, associated with planet Venus and the color gold, is also the element of beauty and glamour.
September takes us into the height of autumn in the Chinese calendar, a season associated with Metal – an element that is most lacking and misunderstood in modern society, yet it is also the element that connects us to spirit, magic, and beauty.

August 7 takes us into the second half of the year of the Earth Dog and the month of the Metal Monkey. It also marks the beginning of autumn in the Chinese calendar, a season ruled by Metal – a reprieve after a particularly heavy first half of the year dominated by strong Earth element.
Metal element is used as a Feng Shui remedy to cure and subdue the negative effects of Flying Star 2, associated with illness, and Flying Star 5, associated with all kinds of misfortune. Why Metal? Metal reduces Earth in the Five Element cycle. Metal is also used to boost Flying Star 1, associated with wisdom, knowledge, and future prosperity.
