Feng Shui Astrology for January 2021 Ox 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 twelfth month of the year starts on January 6th, 2020, and ends on February 3rd, 2021. Therefore, all the recommendations are given in this article will be accurate until February 3rd, 2021.

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 the 5 elements.

January 2021 is the month of the Earth Ox. In this article, I will share with you what kind of energy and events to expect in January 2021 and how to properly choose dates for different events.

Feng Shui Astrology for January 2021

The Energy of the Month of the Earth Ox

According to the Chinese calendar, January 2021 is ruled by the Earth Ox.

In Chinese mythology, the Earth Ox is an image of cold snow-covered soil. There is no movement in such soil, everything is frozen through. At first glance, everything looks very peaceful and calm. However, any achievement this month is going to be quite hard to make. It can be compared to your ability to dig only a shallow hole in the frozen permafrost. And then, in order to get to something, you have to use a drill through solid ice. In the same way, people will need to double or even triple their usual efforts to achieve something. Therefore, in financial terms, this month may be quite difficult.

To balance the elements of the energies of this month, try to warm-up from the inside – eat warm food, watch entertainment shows more often, laugh more, dance, sing, etc. In other words, create more yang energy around you. In general, do not let yourself be upset for no reason and try to stay in a cheerful mood.

In January 2021, it is not recommended to travel in the East and Southeast direction because such trips can be dangerous. This recommendation only applies to long-distance trips. It is ok to take a walk or move around the city or close to it in the East or Southeast direction.

Auspicious Days In January 2021

January 13th and 25th are good dates for any positive affairs. Actions started on these dates will get off to a good start and have every chance of success. It’s a good date for celebration, signing deals, buying valuable property, or starting a new job. However, these dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Rabbit.

January 15th is a good date for official openings. This date is good for signing a new agreement, getting a new job, or starting school. However, this date is not suitable for those born in the year of the Snake.

January 21st is a good date for long-term affairs and getting stable results. This date is not suitable for those born in the year of the Boar.

Days With a Higher Risk of Getting Viruses And Other Infectious Diseases

January 14th and 26th – during these days it’s easier to get a disease, which is especially important at the current time. Therefore, make sure during these days you practice social distancing and stay home, as there is an increased risk of getting infections and viruses!

Inauspicious Days In January 2021

January 10th, 11th, 22nd, and 23rd are unfavorable dates to start important things.

January 16th and 28th are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete old cases.

January 9th is a day of losses. Don’t start anything important on this day.

January 17th – February 2nd is the period of a very strong stagnation. It is not a good time for starting construction work, otherwise, the completion time may be significantly delayed. Also, it’s not good to start a new business, or do weddings.

February 2nd is a grueling day that carries a very low energy level. Any important affairs are not recommended during this day, especially weddings and starting a business.
