For thousands of years the I Ching has provided guidance for people's health decisions, relationships, financial matters, work and play. Predictions from the I Ching follow the lunar year and are based on the cycles of the heavens and the earth. Further influences include the Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water; the effect of yin and yang and the forces exerted by a variety of stems, branches, directions and phases.
March is a month of transition. In China, Jing Zhe or The Waking of Insects and The Awakening of Hibernating Animals will be observed on March 5. In the west we will also catch a glimpse of winter sliding into spring: Purim has already begun, Daylight Saving Time starts on March 11, Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated on the 17th, and winter officially ends on the 20th.
In March, the Wood Element continues to provide forward-moving energy to will kick off new possibilities. Look for exciting developments to explore and expand upon, but remember that you’re going to need to keep up your own forward-moving motivation as some of the quieter, calmer Elements begin to exert their influence during the remainder of the year.
New opportunities are entirely possible in this forward-moving mǎo phase of Chinese year of the Dog, 4716 … hang on to your hat!
March can be a pretty intense month for you, since Wood’s nourishing energy may push you a little harder and faster than you feel you can manage. Fortify yourself this month with nourishing food and adequate rest, and get yourself to bed early. If you are having a little trouble sleeping, it’s time to look into Infinichi’s wonderful Sleep products.
Fire people are intense, and can literally burn themselves out in a Wood energy month, but your passion and intensity can also provide you with direction. As you move through this fast-moving month, keep your work/life in balance and allow yourself time for some fun. If you begin to feel sensitive or overwhelmed, take time out to rest and chill.
Fire people are wonderfully sensitive, which means they can easily wound others, or become easily wounded themselves. Focus your incredible Fire energy toward bright and light, and be a positive force in your dealings with others. Step back when you become aware that you are becoming negative and re-aim your light toward the good.
April’s calm, stable Earth influence is just a month away, so avoid high-risk investments this month and wait until April, or better yet take advantage of the upcoming Double-Fire energy months of May and June when your energy and your luck will soar. Keep in mind that Fire people can be a little impulsive, so remember to look before you leap!
You are so much happier and better motivated when you are doing something you love. The first question to ask yourself is what do you love, and the second question is, are you in the right career? If you are unable to change jobs, at least for now, then make it a priority to find a hobby or a class that will engage your interest and jump right in!
