Today is the beginning of the month of the Fire Dragon 丙辰 Bing Chen.
Congratulations on having survived two Wood months in one piece, as it has been quite intense… Things have clearly speeded up, but we have made it! We have learnt to be faster and more resilient. So, let’s keep going!
The new solar month begins on the day of the Water Snake, 癸巳 Gui Si. It coincides with the full Moon, the 15th day of the lunar cycle, which energetically is extremely strong. Staying active on this day, especially physically active, is beneficial. We can do multiple tasks with ease. At the same time, children and young people could find it difficult to stay focused, and it is better to let them do whatever they feel like, simply because they would not be willing to negotiate.
During the month of 辰 Chen, the element of 木 Wood goes into storage, the 水 Water goes into grave. The 土 Earth continues accumulating its strength. The Wood season Spring is coming to an end, gradually giving way to Summer. The countering between the 火 Fire (丙 Bing, Yang Fire) and the 水 Water (癸 Gui, Yin Water) on the first day of the month takes a bit more amicable character due to the difference in polarities.
On the first day of the new solar month, the annual branch 卯 Mao is trying to control the branch of the month 辰 Chen, which is supported by 巳 Si. The 土 Earth in this combination is stronger than other elements.
As a mountain (Yang Earth), it reaches into the sky in all its glory, with the shining Sun (丙 Bing) above it. This image of 丙辰 Bing Chen sets the tone for the upcoming weeks, with the topics concerning economy, banking, natural resources, food, energy, information, Truth and prosperity.
What should we pay attention to?
With the PWS#6 flying into the centre of the Luo Shu, it is the 乾Qian trigram which rules the monthly affairs together with the annual PWS#4 (巽Xun trigram). We should expect to see changes to the rules and regulations. In some countries, there will be difficulties in maintaining the social order. We may see people protesting police brutality, or unpopular government decisions.
We have already seen how the mass protests across Europe in recent months have created chaos in transportation and logistics (PWS#4). Similar events could arise in April, creating further disruptions.
Travelling by air could become another hot topic. The annual news trend relating safety issues in aviation industry is not going away anytime soon.
The Wind trigram (PWS#4) is a symbol of freedom. The topics of privacy, personal freedoms and population control (乾Qian) could become even more concerning for general public.
The geographical locations related to the SE and NW directions, will continue to be eventful with the PWS#5 (annual #5 – in NW, monthly #5 – In SE) sitting at both ends of the axis. In 乾Qian it is visited by the PWS#7, the star of the hidden danger and provocations. This combination could manifest in events related to the VIPs being in dangerous or challenging situations.
Other news generating locations during the 丙辰 Bing Chen will be the S & N. This especially concerns the marine areas, islands, or peninsulas. We may start hearing more about the North and South Korea, the South China sea and developments in the Oceania region.
With the 玄武 Tortoise deity in 离Li together with PWS#1, there could be events related to massive theft of public funds, or fraud, or it could manifest as robbery in a central location, or anti-smuggling operation in the sea. Since hiding in 离Li is impossible, the criminals will get caught.
The combination PWS##6-4, brings unusual weather patterns to some regions, such as unexpected hail or snowstorms. Other weather events could include flooding, heavy rain or landslides in mountain regions.
The topics of banking, funds, liquidity, currencies, and inflation may get even hotter, as the PWS #9 flies into Gen. Given the combination of components here, we may safely guess that some stories will be about mismanagement, errors and incompetency, corruption or conflict of interests. We will hear about more companies going bankrupt.
The news about Donald Trump’s (Chief) arrest and questioning (PWS#7) in relation to misuse (Shower) of election funds (Xin) is typical for this trend.
The monthly PWS#8 (Earth), the star of wealth is visiting Dui palace (Metal). Here it is drained not only by the palace, but also by the Fear and the annual PWS#6. The Combo deity (Wood) in this setting is too weak to take charge.
The economical alliances (Combo, Wood) are under pressure to transform (Dui, Fear, PWS#6 are all Metal). We can always imagine ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’, but at present, we have not reached the point where we can see it. The Dui palace is a messy place.
The monthly PWS#5 in the East during the last month (卯 Mao) has brought disturbance along the E-W axis. We have seen further deterioration of the diplomatic relations between the US and China after Xi Jinping’s visit to Moscow.
During the 丙辰 Bing Chen, the E-W stand-off takes on a different level. It expands (monthly PWS#4, Wind trigram). The Wind has no boundaries, we do not know where it would stop, but currently it continues gaining momentum. All other political events will directly or indirectly relate to this trend.
In April the PWS#3 (Zhen, Thunder trigram) flies into 坤 Kun where its impacts could be particularly disturbing. It counters 死 Death, while being under pressure from the 白虎 Tiger. Both components are inauspicious.
This combination could be associated with stories related to farms or domestic animals. Another interpretation could relate to dramatic situations or accidents taking place around the religious or historical sites.
Vandalized (PWS#3) historical sites (Death) or statues (Aid) is another possibility.
This combination can also be read as a miraculous rescue (Aid) of refugees (Geng, Death) in the sea (PWS#1) from sinking boat (壬庚, Tiger).
What can we do?
Not much, although we may experience strong push to make changes.
We may go ahead if we are ready to embrace whatever comes next. 丙辰 Bing Chen is indeed, about strength and courage. But we may need more clarity, at this point we may not have all the answers.
Observe. The Wind may whisper something important, providing we are listening. The Wind may show us the direction.
The dates to note:
