April is the month of the Water Dragon - it starts on the 4th of April at approximately 1632 hrs.
The dragon and the monkey make a partial team of water, and with the stem being water it is going to be rather soggy - either from rain and other atmospheric phenomenon or from tears falling from your eyes.
Whenever we have a strong cycle we can be turn in the direction of victim-hood - that is non-volitional beings or we can take charge of our own emotional states. Most emotional states will self extinguish either when the stimuli has diminished or around 20 minutes after the stimuli so long as we don't reinforce our internal responses. Just imagine only feeling uncomfortable for 20 minutes. Take charge of the energy that surrounds you and only take on board what is a) yours and b) your responsibility.
We have a primary clash between the stems and this will manifest for the first half of the month thru to approximately the 20th of April and then the branches take over prominence. There is still influence from both as they are not mutually exclusive.
The Stem for the month is Yang Water and the Stem for the year is Yang Fire - water extinguishes or controls fire. This means there are wealth opportunities for some, particularly if you are yang water day master. Be very careful with your strategies and, if you enjoy the partial water team then the 12th of April, the 24th of April being Rat days will bring you the full team - yea! Make it profit for you - don't forget to give back to the great universal pool.
The following days will be clashes.
- The tiger and the monkey will clash.
- The Dragon and the Dog will clash and to a lesser extent the rabbit will clash.
Again these are days to take care of business, good for planning, for resting and for engaging in pleasant activities.
|date||stem & branch||clash||details|
|4th April||fire dragon||dog clash||void - no activities of any significance should be planned for void days|
|5th April||fire snake||look for mentors|
|6th April||earth horse||earth is very strong today - depending on your day master - can be very useful|
|7th April||earth sheep|
||metal monkey||tiger clash||watch our for idiots on the road today they will find it difficult to temper themselves - if this is your travel sign then take public transport|
||metal rooster||romance in the air for some|
||water dog||clash with dragon||very strong water - you can use it if your natal chart can take this much water. Child born today will be fierce and need special 'management'.|
|11th April||water pig||wow - enough water to drown the hardiest of folk|
|12th April||wood rat||again a lot of water - washes away the wood and extinguished the fire - pretty difficult to see the true picture|
|13th April||wood ox||again so much water certainly too much to float anyone's boat|
|14th April||fire tiger||clash with monkey||strong wood in the rabbit hour - many will feel restless and unable to figure what's going on|
|15th April||fire rabbit||strong wood which can take most of the hidden water from the year and the month - opportunity to make money for the yang water person|
|16th April||earth dragon||very strong water - make sure that you keep your emotions in check and don't say things that even 10,000 horses can't drag back. A person born today will need to learn to be accomodating to others point of view|
|17th April||earth snake||More water - deluge - emotional melt downs around you - remember only accept responsibility for what is yours but don't add to the dramas|
|18th April||metal horse||again fairly restless day with little respite from the emotional drama - probably many ups and downs on the world stock exchanges - remember that this can spread into the next day depending on what time zone you are in|
|19th April||metal sheep||opportunity for money for the Yang fire day master|
|20th April||water monkey||clash to tiger||wow - this will be very testing for you - stay calm|
|21st April||water rooster||there is strong metal but the water is stronger|
|22nd April||wood dog||clash to dragon||wood not strong enough to divert the momentum of the water|
|23rd April||wood pig||birth place of wood but ineffectual because of the amount of water|
|24th April||fire rat||two suns cannot light up the night|
|25th April||fire ox||money opportunities for yang water day master|
|26th April||earth tiger||clash to monkey||the water tries desperately to hold the water but the water is too strong and it breaks the banks of the dam|
|27th April||earth rabbit||water prevails|
|28th April||metal dragon||double clash to dog||there is overwhelming water again or still|
|29th April||metal snake||more water - there will be a very wet spring in the northern hemisphere|
|30th April||water horse||wow - even more water|
|1st May||water sheep||nearly enough earth to do something constructive with the water but not quite so|
|2nd May||wood monkey||clash with tiger||again too much water for the wood to profit|
|3rd May||wood rooster||romance in the air if you have another rooster or dragon in your chart|
|4th May||fire dog||clash with dragon||two suns cannot shine on all the water - watch the night time to see what is really visible around you|
|5th May||fire pig||clash with the incoming month||void - beginning of the snake month|
So we need to be careful with and of water this month - it is both our emotional states, those of people around us and the general public. If you are involved in customer service in any way do expect some fairly irrational folk around you - stay calm and carry on - keep your heart steady and recognise we are all students of life and none of us can see everything all the time.
PS - the equivocation from our politicians and the general public will remain until the month of the yin water snake. A little reprieve then but still a lot of water around.
