January 2022 Flying Stars (January 5-February 3 2022)
So we have reached the Ox month of January in our 2021 Ox year when transitioning to a new year in the Western calendar.
Ox has its home in North East 1. As a water earth animal it will be strengthened slightly by the now weak metal of January.
Water earth Ox has a clash relationship with its opposite number, fire earth Goat (SW1). These are both storage animals, the Ox of winter and the Goat of summer.
If you are Goat born and have Ox anywhere in your birth chart be aware of this throughout the month, Where the Ox is located in your chart (year, month, day or hour) will determine its influence.
Goat days in January – 6th, 18th
Ox days in January – 12th, 24th
Metal is now weak, water is weakening and wood is strong. Fire and earth are still ineffective but now waiting in the wings ready to awaken when wood takes centre stage in February.
January – Final Month of Winter
Yin Metal Ox Month
Ox and Goat (both storage animals) share a clash relationship.
Ox, Rooster and Snake create a metal frame. These animals have to appear in your chart or as annual/monthly visitors. Positive if your Day Master is supported by metal.
Ox shares a positive relationship with Rat and together they produce earth. It is not possible to make use of this combination in winter as earth is dead. These two make a great pair. They desire the same things in life however the Rat feels some insecurity which the Ox can calm.
Our Ox has a destructive relationship with Dragon (SE12) another storage animal, however this one is yang, Ox is yin. This pair, when appearing side by side in your chart can cause difficulties and put you in a awkward situation. Know your limitations and stay strong. Be especially aware during Dragon days.

Goat, Dog and Ox have what is known as a bullying punishment. This can manifest when they appear side by side in your chart. It can also occur if one of these animals appears in your luck pillar. Short story, you can bully yourself such that you do things you shouldn’t but cannot help your actions. Or you could be bullied by others. They cause problems for you and you feel unable to cope. You can cope however, if you recognise what is happening and stay strong.
Ox hour is 01.00-02.59.
Luo Shu Grid January 2022
There is a Sum of Ten combination in the north this month with annual 2 and monthly 8. This sum of ten can bring wealth from both cash and assets. If you are investing you could find yourself benefiting if you take advantage of the north this month.
Northeast has annual 9 magnifying star and 6 white star. This pair is known as ‘fire burning Heaven’s Gate’. Sounds horrendous, right? Well, not necessarily. If you are in business and you want to change the status quo, want to disrupt your industry, this is a great area to make it happen. If you have a new service or product you want to get out there, this is the time to set the wheels in motion. As individuals you need to be seen, expand your network and be sociable. The only thing to be wary of is health issues relating to the heart. So be careful, do not stress or over-indulge.
Remember to sit with your back to Grand Duke (NE1) if working in the northeast, to gain his support.
East has the annual 4 green star and monthly 1 white star. They combine to create wisdom and intelligence with academic capabilities. This is one of the best pair to see. Luck is definitely on your side when working or studying in this location. If taking advantage of this combination remember that for one more month 3 Killings is present in the east. Work in this area for sure however face east, southeast or northeast rather than west. The important thing is to confront 3 Killings rather than have then behind you when you will have no idea what they are planning.
These three sectors are the best for January.
What do the remaining areas have in store?
Southeast has two earth element stars in the form of 5 yellow and 2 black. What can we say? Wood and earth are conflicting elements so that in itself is not a good indicator. There is only one more month and 5 yellow will move on so stay away from this location if at all possible. Negative health issues and disappointment is generally all we can offer.
1 annual and 7 monthly in the south is a combination to be used by those of you in business who have to communicate your message to an audience; to your clients or fans. It gives you the clarity and ability to talk the good talk. On the other hand it can encourage you to over indulge when it comes to drinking. It is better to talk rather than drink to avoid saying things you may later regret.
Southwest has a combination of 3 annual and 9 monthly in January. This pair can help you work towards your success. On the way however remember the people around you who are there with help and support as you progress. 3 wood star is known as the star of disagreements however 3 star creates 9 star which in turn creates the earth location of the southwest so there is an element of harmony here. In general this location can be used but do not face NE1 (Grand Duke) while working as this could undo all your good work.
West has two earth stars together this month. The 8 wealth star and the 5 yellow. The good news is that the 8 star has the ability to calm 5 yellow. Very useful. Also as they are both in a metal location and metal weakens earth things are not as bad as they could be. Agreed there will be difficulties but it could be worse. Trust in your own ability and take things one step at a time. Think twice before working in this location unless the external environment is positive. If you have to spend time here however face the 3 Killings in the east.
Finally the northwest has the annual 7 and monthly 4 together. The 7 metal star can cut and destroy the 4 wood star in this metal location. Deception and scheming are two of the negative attributes of this pair. For individuals spending time in the northwest during January they may feel depressed and suffering from lack of motivation. Not good. These are short lived but the best way to avoid such feelings is to stay away from the northwest for January.
• 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.
