According to the Chinese calendar, the new year starts on January 22nd, 2023, and will last until February 10th, 2024. 2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit. In this article, I will share a general outlook and predictions for 2023 based on the Bazi (Paht Chee). This outlook will help you to get a clear perspective of the energy of the year based on the 5 element theory. Also, you will learn what to expect in the most important areas of your life in 2023: finances, relationships, career, and health.
Predictions For 2023
The Energy of the Year of the Water Rabbit
Bazi is a system that describes all life processes with energies known as the “5 elements” – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. And 12 astrological animal signs conventionally denote the sectors of the circle along which the Earth and other planets revolve around the Sun. They have their own characteristics, and in addition, interact with the personal energies of each person. And thus, it is possible to draw certain conclusions and make a general and personal forecast for 2023 based on the Bazi Chart.
The year 2023 is represented by Yin Water and the Rabbit.
The Rabbit is a nimble creature, fast, docile, but cunning. Diplomacy is its superpower. Yin water symbolizes a modest, moderate drop of water. It also embodies intelligence, adaptability, and flexibility. Also, Yin water is associated with finding smart solutions through compromise and innovative creative ideas.
The Rabbit is also a peach blossom animal. Therefore we can expect that entertainment, art, beauty, and romantic affairs will flourish in 2023. This is a great year for meeting your soul mate and for getting married. However, this year will also bring sexual scandals and sexually transmitted diseases.
We can also expect an increased number of natural disasters, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, wildfires, etc., worldwide.
Air flights are governed by the Fire element. Since the Fire is completely absent in 2023, this may indicate potential plane crashes.
We can also expect to see more protests and tension this year. There will be more public outcry against injustices which may eventually result in changes for the better. Also, there is an indication of the possibility of assassination and even terrorist activities in 2023.
World Economy Predictions for 2023
2023 is a year with Wood and the Water element in dominance. The Fire element is completely missing this year. Thus, the signs of economic recovery that we witnessed in mid-2022 cannot be maintained, and we can expect that growth will slow down by the second half of 2023. The general economic atmosphere and the stock market are likely to become more gloomy again in the fall season.
Fire Element Industries:
- the stock market;
- power generation;
- restaurants, etc.
In 2023, we can expect that markets will be highly volatile and speculative. Companies with strong fundamentals will be able to maintain value. Innovation and a creative approach will help to improve profits. But, in general, we can’t expect 2023 to be a good year for the Fire element industries.
Cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and the Metaverse businesses also need the power of the Fire element to thrive. Since there is no Fire element in the chart for 2023, enthusiasm for investing in the Metaverse and cryptocurrency may noticeably cool down by the second half of 2023.
Earth Element Industries:
- real estate;
- building constructions;
- land development;
- computer software, etc.
Oversupply will decrease profits and increase selling costs. In order to maintain interest, creative marketing is needed. We can expect sales to improve during the fall. In general, we can expect that 2023 will be a good year for the Earth industries.
Metal Element Industries:
- white goods, etc.
In 2023, we will see that the Metal element industries will increase sales and demand for minerals; however, there is an indication of possible supply chain problems.
Water Element Industries:
- fishing, etc.
The Water element industries have a big potential for improved business from summer through autumn. However, there will be some challenges throughout the year. Business rivalry and fierce competition may reduce profits. This year you need more innovation and the use of new technology to manage costs better.
Wood Element Industries:
- the environment and climate change;
- flowers and plants, etc.
The Wood element industries are going to face big competition this year. 2023 is the year when demand exceeds supply, but costs also increase. A lack of essential resources will lead to reduced productivity. Therefore, the Wood element industries risk loss if not managed well.
Health Predictions for 2023
There is an indication of an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes in 2023. Therefore, it is highly recommended to take dietary supplements such as Nattokinase and COQ10 to improve blood circulation and body energy. Also, take more antioxidants to balance the Earth element.
There is also a high possibility of food poisoning occurring in the first half of the year.
Also, there will be more overexertion, depression, anxiety, mental breakdowns, and mental disorders in 2023. Make sure you practice meditation, breathwork, and other mindfulness practices daily.
Relationship Predictions for 2023
2023 will be a great year for meeting a soul mate and getting married. This is an excellent year for married couples to renew their vows/love for each other. However, there is an indication of possible conflicts and scandals that may cause severe relationship problems. Don’t let small obstacles ruin your happiness! Focus more on giving love to your partner and less on counting how much love you get back. Unconditional love will make this year a good one for your relationship and family harmony.
5 Elements: Predictions for 2023 + Recommendations
There is a huge imbalance in the main Bazi chart of 2023 since there are only three of the five elements present in it. The three elements that are presented in the chart are:
- The Water element represents friends and connections this year;
- The Wood element, which stands for intelligence and creativity in 2023;
- The Fire element signifies wealth this year.
The Bazi chart 2023 lacks two elements:
- The Earth element, which represents power, rank, and recognition;
- The Metal element represents resources.
Let’s take a closer look at each element.
Water (Friends, Alliances & Connections)
The Water element in the chart points to the importance of building strong alliances in 2023. The chart suggests the presence of supporters, secret admirers, and helpful people. 2023 is the year when you have to get your name out there, put in the effort to meet new people, and make a good first impression. This will help you succeed and attract new opportunities. This is the year when networking becomes especially important, which suggests that those with the right connections can go very far.
How to activate networking luck?
Try to enlarge your circle and even multiply the number of circles you are a part of this year. Display the Feng Shui Cardinal Connectivity Activator Plate in the central part of your house or the living room. It will help you to create strong connections with others and invite success into your life!
Wood (Intelligence & Creativity)
The Wood element in the chart shows that people will have lots of ideas and opinions that will be shared openly. There will be lots of discussions around different ideas. However, we should remember that in order to manifest those ideas into reality and benefit from them, we have to put them into action. Therefore, it’s important to balance the discussions of ideas with actual actions and work.
Another issue we could deal with this year is that there will be too many ideas, and it may not be easy to pick the right ones – the ones that can actually be fruitful. Therefore, we have to have the wisdom to choose them correctly.
How to do it?
Invoke Manjushri (the Wisdom Buddha), who grants the blessings of wisdom and the right choices. By chanting the Manjushri Mantra, you will develop a broader overview to make the right decisions.

How to boost creativity in 2023?
Boost your creativity by adding more green colors into your life. Wearing green clothes and decorating your home with green plants will be very beneficial in 2023! However, do not go overboard. Balance green color by pairing it with the colors of the Metal element such as white, silver, or green. The Metal element will help you ensure you can turn your creative ideas into reality. It’s also very beneficial to wear gold or silver jewelry with green stones.
Fire (Wealth & Prosperity)
If you want to grow your investments, increase your net worth, and enhance your profits, Fire is the element to tap this year!!! 2023 is a promising year for making lots of money, don’t miss this opportunity!
How to activate the Fire element?
Adding red color to your wardrobe will help activate the Fire element. Also, it makes sense to buy a red wallet – it will be a powerful money attractor in 2023!
Also, make sure you get the Big Money Bull this year! This is a powerful wealth activator, especially for business owners. Place the Money Bull in your office and enjoy wealth flow in 2023!
Earth (Power, Rank & Recognition)
As mentioned above, the Earth element is missing from the year’s main chart. This suggests a lack of clear leadership and a lack of authority. It can also indicate a fight for power. We may see that those with a formal rank or position may not have as much power as those who can influence big audiences. Yes, I’m talking about social media influences. We may see how they become more involved in politics and social problems than ever before. They will be “aggressively” shaping the opinions of their followers. It is them who will have real power in 2023.
This year, popularity = power.
CEOs, business owners, leaders, etc., will experience problems getting the result they want from their employees due to a lack of power.
What to do?
Those in leading positions should enhance their power by displaying the Dragon Ru Yi on their work desk. Ru Yi is a symbol of a ruler. It will imbue you with power, influence, and strength to navigate any turbulence in business or politics.
The Metal element is also missing from the year’s main chart. This year, the Metal element stands for resources. Therefore, we may expect resources to be in short supply in 2023.
As I already mentioned, there is a lot of wealth in the chart. But because there are no resources (the Metal element) in the chart, it will create obstacles for making money. People will have all the ideas and opportunities, but it’s not going to be easy to turn them into profits.
What to do?
In 2023, the combination of the Earth and the Metal elements is very powerful. You can benefit from it by wearing jewelry made of precious metals set with natural stones.
The Bottom Line
I hope that the Bazi predictions for 2023 helped you to get more clarity about the year of the Water Rabbit. Unfortunately, this year doesn’t promise to be a calm one. However, it will also bring us many opportunities, ideas, and wealth. This is also a great year for getting married. Those already married should put more effort into their marriage this year. It’s very important to maintain harmony in our relationships. Also, don’t forget to give yourself enough rest and practice mindfulness throughout the year and always!
