Month of the Wood Ox

On January 6th, the Wood Rat energies change to the month of the Wood Ox in the year of the Brown Mountain Dog. The final month of the year is ruled by the ox until the first day of Spring, when the tiger arrives. The Ox is the perfect animal to end the year as it brings strength, perseverance, thoughtfulness and the urge to take control and correct all that is ‘out of whack” in ones life.

This year, the first day of spring is on February 4th which is also the beginning of the new solar calendar. The lunar calendar for 2019 begins on February 5th.

I am sending two newsletters this week as there is too much info for one! This one lists the auspicious and inauspicious dates for January and the next one will focus on the yearly energies of 2019, the year of the “Muddy Brown Pig..” It is a year of very yin energies; soil and water. These energies are vastly different from those of 2018, the Year of the “Brown Mountain Dog.”

Last year, I wrote that, “ 2018 year is not ruled by a dachshund, poodle, or terrier, but by a strong, stubborn, powerful, tough, conservative Dog, who is resistant to change. The underlying elemental energies are yang earth (mountain) over the yang earth (mountain)
energies of the Dog. Picture a huge fixed mountain sitting on top of another fixed mountain.” It certainly was a year which focused on protecting and guarding social order and traditional values.

Following are the auspicious and non auspicious days for the “ Wooden Ox.” Remember to check whether your sign clashes with the day energy. If so, the day is not good for you – ie. – if it is a Tiger day, (like Jan. 17th) it is not a good day for a monkey.

With all of the untested and harmful frequencies from the Smart Meters and 5G being thrust upon us, it is good to have a reliable meter to test their location and strength. EMF for Less has the new Trifield Meter, the TF2, that measures emf fields, radio and microwaves.

It has replaced the old Trifield Meter and is necessary to measure:

  • Cell/Mobile Tower RF Radiation
  • Radio Frequency Radiation
  • WiFi Radiation from your router or other sources
  • Bluetooth Radiation
  • Power line Radiation
  • Laptop and desktop computer radiation
  • TV radiation
  • Home Appliance Radiation such as refrigerators and washing machines
  • EMF radiation inside of vehicles
  • Finds the location of EMF radiation coming from your wiring via dirty electricity
  • …And anything else that emits EMF radiation

You can access it and myriads of other emf protective gear through this link:

Now is a great time to book your annual Feng Shui consultation and/or Space Clearing to welcome in the New “Muddy Pig” year! 2019 is going to be an extremely weak, yin year. It is therefore very important to remedy the negative energies in your home or business and to enhance the positive healthy and wealthy areas this year.
