September Earth Element Horoscope



Welcome to your September 2023 Chinese Horoscope!

Ancient civilizations like China observed repeatable patterns in nature such as weather and corresponded those cycles of changes with the planetary configuration that were also recognized to change repetitively in the sky, and therefore devised a method of tracking, over millenniums, what these changes brought, and then used that data to predict future patterns of occurrences. This was essential for agrarian societies to evolve as it provided advice for the best time during each season to begin planting and end harvest for maximum crop yield. 

Other applications arose to use this system to predict the onset of disease epidemics on a societal level, the outcome of business deals, economic cycles, consequences of war and peace with an adversary, and so on. On the individual level, astrology was used to determine one’s personality and unique traits as well as vulnerabilities, personal life cycle of success, fengshui or favorable placement of living and workspace, and not the least, marriage suitability with a prospective candidate. In fact, within the Chinese culture, astrological matchmaking is still popularly practiced. 

Life is unpredictable, so a forecasting system like Chinese astrology that studies patterns is useful to help guide you in making an informed decision that may impact the five areas of life, which we call Five Healths as it includes the health of your body, mind/spirit, relationships, career, and finance. This system utilizes the Five Elements, so if you don’t know your personality element, take the quiz and then read on for your personal horoscope for this month. 

The knowledge of your Personality Element is the first step to understanding who you are. The next step is to know how your Element will fare in a changing world we call life that is not static and is constantly evolving. However, life is not entirely unpredictable as astrology gives us the knowledge of patterns of change—rooted in the ancient oracle of Taoism called I Ching, or the Book of Changes, where patterns of cosmic changes have been observed, recorded, and a method of forecast can be learned.

Taken together, this month is good for starting up projects, endeavors, and missions related to the Metal element—industries like high-tech chips and battery manufacturing, financials, engineering, and organizing and restructuring. This can be applied personally to reorganizing your life in all aspects to better focus on actualizing your purpose and goals.  

Your Earth element is generative for this month’s dual Metal, providing positive support for your life. However, the yearly Wood element influence is in conflict with your Earth element, which may hamper your natural inclination of nurture.

Elementally, September 2023 is a favorable month for the following people: Water, Metal, and to a lesser extent, Fire. While it is neutral for Earth but may be a challenging month for Wood people. If you don’t yet know your element, take a short quiz to find out. Read on for your personalized horoscope here.
