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

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 five elements.

January 2023 is the month of the Water Ox. In this article, I will share what kind of energy and events to expect in January 2023 and how to choose dates for different events correctly.

Feng Shui Astrology for January 2023

The Energy of the Month of the Water Ox

According to the Chinese calendar, January 2023 is ruled by the Water Ox.

In Chinese mythology, the Water Ox is an image of dirty snow. The energies are very cold. It seems like everything is frozen. The strong Water element does not inspire an optimistic mood; on the contrary, it often increases feelings of fear, confusion, and uncertainty.

The Water Ox is distinguished by a broad outlook, spirituality, and a craving for unconventional knowledge. Under the influence of the energies of the month, people can plunge even deeper into emotions, focus on introspection, and start seeing everything that is happening more philosophically and wisely.

Also, it can be noted that social activity and the desire to establish contacts and exchange information among people will increase. People will try to influence each other, convince others, and if the usual charm does not work, then act manipulatively and force others to accept their views against their will.

It is very important to give yourself some emotional support this month. Do more of what inspires you and makes you happy, and come up with some fun activities.

In January 2023, it is recommended to avoid traveling in the North direction. 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 North direction.

Auspicious Days In January 2023

January 11th and 23rd are good dates for starting long-term affairs. Any project started on these dates will not promise rapid development, but it will bring stable, reliable results. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Boar.

January 15th and 27th are good dates for starting new projects. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Rabbit.

Inauspicious Days In January 2023

January 13th, 14th, 25th, and 26th are unfavorable dates to start anything important. These dates bring difficulties, obstacles, and problems.

January 6th, 18th, and 30th are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete ongoing projects.
