Feng Shui Astrology For August 2000 Wood Monkey Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the seventh month of the year starts on August 8th, 2020, and ends on September 7th, 2020. Therefore, all the recommendations are given in this article will be accurate until September 7th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of 5 elements.

August 2020 is the month of the Wood Monkey. In this article, I will share with you what kind of energy and events to expect in August and how to properly choose dates for different events.

The Energy of the Month of the Wood Monkey

According to the Chinese calendar, August 2020 is ruled by the Wood Monkey.

In Chinese mythology, the Wood Monkey is an image of a lying tree felled with a sharp axe. Such a tree has lost its roots and lacks support, which may indicate a general sense of insecurity in the world. In addition, the metal element of the Monkey strengthens the water element of the year of the Rat. Therefore, most people will feel anxiety and fear for their future. Under the influence of such moods, people can become irritated and crave justice at the slightest provocation.

Other characteristics of the Monkey are the power of speech, eloquence, and command of the word.

All this suggests that we can expect public statements, and in general, the month promises to be less calm than July 2020.

On the other hand, August 2020 can give an impulse to start new projects. If something is started in August 2020, it will be implemented faster. Therefore, it is better to start something positive, so that it develops fast.
