December 2021 Flying Stars (December 7-January 4 2022)

Moving into the last month of 2021 we reach the ultimate yin month, the peak of winter. Winter solstice will be with us on December 21 beginning at 10.59 a.m. We can bring yang into our lives with the internal and external decorations of the festive season.

Our Water Rat is strengthened in December with Yang Metal. It is one of the cardinal animals of the zodiac and holds only water within. It is a pure bred and can act as such.

It is also the peach blossom animal for Rabbit, Goat and Pig born. How does it influence you? Rat has the ability to manipulate you and make you think they are the answer to your dreams. However it can also change on a whim. Imagine clouds of yin water coming and going as you watch. Is this your peach blossom animal? Do you have Rat in your birth chart? Where is it located?

Rat resides in North 2. Water of the north in December will be strengthened by the now weakening metal of the month.

The Water Rat has a clash relationship with its opposite number, Horse (S2); also a cardinal animal.

If you are Horse born and have Rat anywhere in your birth chart be aware of this throughout the month, Where the Rat is located in your chart (year, month, day or hour) will determine its influence.

Horse days in December – 12th, 24th.
Rat days in December – 18th, 30th.

The yang metal of the month still has some power although it is now weak. Water is at its peak and wood is gaining strength ready for the spring season in February. Fire and earth have no power at this time of the year.

December- Midwinter

Yang Metal Rat Month

Monkey, Rat and Dragon create a water frame. These animals have to appear in your chart or as annual/monthly visitors. Positive if your Day Master is supported by water.

Rat shares a positive relationship with Ox and together they produce earth. If you can use earth having this combination in your chart is unlikely to be helpful to you at this time of the year.

Rat has a destructive relationship with Rooster (W2) yet another cardinal/peach blossom animal so Rooster born should be aware of this if you have Rat in your chart. Do not be forced into a situation you are ill-equipped to deal with. Stand your ground.

Rat and Rabbit have what is called an uncivilised punishment. When these two appear side by side in your chart it could result in emotional stress or disloyalty to others who you should be grateful to.

Rat hour is split between two days. 23.00-23.59 is known as late Rat hour. 00.0000.59 is referred to as early Rat hour.

Luo Shu Grid December 2021


There is a Sum of Ten combination in the centre this month with annual 6 and monthly 4. If you live or work in an open plan environment you can take advantage of the positive effects of this pair. They combine intellect and knowledge with effective leadership. This can hopefully bring us leaders of government, business or household, who will work with our best interests in mind.

West has annual 8 wealth star and 6 white star together indicating leaders of industry able to combine strong leadership with financial benefits. For individuals the outlook is positive as long as you keep your feet on the ground. Work in the west and seek achievable goals. Attempting to go beyond your current capabilities will not bring your desired outcome.

South has the annual 1 white star and monthly 8 star of wealth. While these two stars individually are auspicious, together they have a conflicting relationship. There is no doubting money can be made when they join forces however you might find you are dissatisfied with the way things are going in your life.

These three sectors are the best for December.

What do the remaining areas have in store?

Southwest has two stars, both strong at this time of the year. Annual 3 wood star and monthly 1 wealth star combine. While the 1 water star is at its peak and can attract wealth it will also feed the 3 wood star, which has the potential to create aggressive behaviour. Those in competitive environments such as athletes can benefit from this, however for anyone in business it could bring troubled times. Individuals can use this combination so working in south west would be beneficial. Avoid SW1 which is the clash location with the animal of the year in NE1.

On the face of it northwest is an area to avoid. Annual 7 metal star has 5 yellow for company in December. Excess metal is potentially strengthened by 5 star. The positive news is that 5 yellow is an earth star so has no power at this time of year. Regardless, it will benefit you to avoid spending time in this location to prevent issues arising. As always we avoid this star of misfortune if possible.

The north has two stars generally powerless in midwinter making their combined influence limited. Together they have the potential to create eye problems. The 9 star is the star of celebration and being seen. Mixing with others for mutual benefit. The 2 star, while linked with illness, can also attract indirect wealth through assets such as share dealing or property. The north is the location of dominance in December so use its positive benefits while avoiding facing directly south.

Northeast sees a combination of 9 annual and 7 monthly. Good or not? Well, 9 for business people means meeting many people with a view to working with them on partnerships, JV’s or contracts. 7 star gives you the gift of persuasion. In business, great, in your private life you could find yourself flirting more than usual. With the party season (hopefully carefully planned) coming up you will need to watch what you say, and who you say it to, especially if you are in a committed relationship. Use this location however be wary of the consequences.

East has annual 4 and monthly 2 together. The 4 wood star is becoming strong and in a wood area it can combine strength with intellect. Positive for anyone in business. 2 star of illness has no power during the winter season so nothing to worry about there. As wood counters earth there is little chance of reaping any financial benefits from passive income. You can work, or spend time here but just err on the side of caution and do not eat or drink too much in this location. This holiday season will see a lot of both so move to another sector especially if this is where your dining room is located.

Finally we move to the southeast. 5 annual meets 3 monthly, never a combination we like to see. The 3 wood star in a wood location counters the 5 yellow earth star. 5 yellow will be controlled at a time of the year it is virtually ineffective however, as always with this negative star, the recommendation is to stay away from the area. Just in case this is not possible, keep a tight control on your finances this month.


• to check the external environment for each of these sectors
• your birth animal and check its clash location in any given month. This can bring change if you use the clash. Change can be good as well as bad so look carefully and make your call

The home stars of each sector, as well as your individual Gua number and Birth Chart will influence these combinations. The above is a generic view of each sector however the results will vary with each person There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to any of this.
