September the month of the rooster.
When the rooster month comes along we know it is pure qi - that means that the metal is very strong even though it is yin. There is much power in the concentration of yin. Some folk think yin is less than or inferior to yang - not so - both yin and yang exist to empower or drive or fuel each other. That is why every other double hour, day, month and year is yin or yang. Nothing is static. The wheel turns constantly.
The stem is yin wood.
Yin wood denotes flexibility and adaptability. It relates to the liver and to the trigram of the eldest daughter.
The emotional state that wood governs is anger, irritability and frustration.
The branch is the rooster as mentioned above. The rooster is pure yin metal.
Metal governs the mouth, the voice, speech, singing, sighing and GOSSIP!
the wood rooster
When we have wood sitting atop metal we have a most dangerous situation for the wood. This yin metal sits beneath the ground, is therefore hidden and it cuts at the roots in the ground. It is a serious clash.
Expect the law to come down heavily on the environmental movement, so if there are any cases pending, or awaiting decisions in national and international courts then the results may not be as expected.
For example, my focal point for 2015 is Greece. Alexis Tsipras has called a snap election for 20th of September, 2015. Whilst he managed to hold on to a slim majority and take Greece out of immediate crisis of default, and negotiate a new agreement with the EU and IMF, the breakaway group within the Syriza party has tried to wriggle out of the agreement (harsh as it is) and left him with no room to manoeuvre so he has resigned and called the snap election.
We will look at Alexis' chart in a little more detail later.
So, should the election go ahead (a breakaway group in Syriza is trying to do a backroom deal with minor parties) then the election result will possibly be something that cuts at the roots of Greek democracy.
There is a pretty curious group sitting in the background in Greek politics called the The Golden Dawn party which is a neo nazi party, and they are playing wedge politics. They could gain serious ground in this climate.
Expect the current anti-environmental charge from the Abbott government to continue and for them to possibly win some traction although the victory may be short lived.
wood rooster meets the wood sheep
We are now in the 2nd half of the year where the sheep prevails for the year, the wood having had it's turn in the limelight for the first half of the year.
Every month there is another combination of energies which must be analysed together with the annual energies. Kind of like an equation - year+month=x.
The two stems are both yin wood - this makes them rivals for attention, or colleagues - depends on the daily energies.
The rooster and the sheep do not combine or clash with each other superficially. But when we look at their qi profiles we can see that the sheep could be seen to generate the metal of the rooster. The sheep has yin earth, yin fire, and yin wood buried within it. The wood generates fire, the fire generates the earth, and the earth generates the metal.
This means that the metal is VERY strong and will be very irritable as it is constantly trying to control the irritating yin wood.
If you have something in your chart that combines with the rooster to provide something you can use then it could be a wonderful month for you. If you have a rabbit, or a rat or a rooster well placed in your chart then please take extra care and be VERY careful of any legal cases, or initiating litigation this month.
