Chinese Astrology Insights April 2019

The purpose of this post is to help you plan for next month, so you are receiving information in April for May. Those who signed up for blog posts receive this immediately. Those who signed up for newsletters receive it via email on the third Tuesday.

The Chinese Astrology month is May 6 through June 5. It is an earth-snake month in 2019’s earth-pig year. Trends for the month:

  • The snake’s natural element is fire. Now overlay fire with May’s earth cycle — earth and fire are compatible. This implies a good month.
  • We’ll likely experience the snake’s positive characteristics such as persistence, patience, flexibility, pragmatic, adventurer, intuitive, and spiritual.
  • The downside is 2019’s pig year doesn’t play well with the snake. I grew up in the country and farmers brought in pigs to get rid of copperhead snakes. So, we may experience some of the snake’s negativity which includes temper, not listening; or being immoral, inconsistent, or aggressive.

How do you use this information?

  • Be supportive, humble, and patient with yourself and others.
  • Be present when others are speaking to you. Avoid the temptation to multi-task and this will likely be perceived as lack of commitment or concern.
  • Create a mantra for May and live accordingly. How about “I am optimistic and happy.” Look yourself in the mirror each morning and repeat it.
  • “I” am optimistic and happy.
  • I AM optimistic and happy.
  • I am OPTIMISTIC and happy.
  • I am optimistic AND happy.
  • I am optimistic and HAPPY.

Affinity TrianglesAs mentioned, the snake’s opposite is pig so if you’re a pig your energy may be low during May. Don’t make major decisions, avoid large expenditures, use this time to set goals and make plans, and do something fun to boost your energy.

Here’s a special tip: There are twelve Chinese astrology signs and twelve months of the year. May is the snake month every year so place this in your calendar: Pigs are not supported every May.

Snakes are in the planning group – reflective, purposeful thinkers with an internal focus. Their natural buddies are roosters and ox so all three are generally supported in May. I place my group in my yearly planner because it is nice to know when things may go more smoothly. Make sense?
