The most celestial and enchanting of all the Chinese Zodiacal Creatures is the Dragon. He is of the Earth but is viscous as he rises from the swamp, wet and covered in seaweed. Where March we had collaboration, here we find competition. Dragon is fully absorbed in his own agenda, Ox is stubbornly holding her stance. So its an impasse, and a reminder that this is not the month to push something that is currently stuck, delayed, or otherwise not flowing easily. This Dragon has the stem of Yang Water adding a waterfall to this swampy month. I intuit not only a lot of rain, but mud slides, and possibly snowstorms.
The 3 Star is in the Center with the Annual 6 Star. The 3 is weak and a Wood Star, greatly reduced in its influence here in the Earthy Center and with the annual Metal 6 Star. Just be aware of the potential for contention and disputes this month radiating out of every home and work place. These conflicts may block the possibility for success and prospering in the weeks ahead. Take heed. CURE: A Gold Buddha sitting on coins, and images of success, and prospering which could be a framed $100 bill or an image of a feast. Frames on any pictures are ideally Metal, Black or White.

The 9 Star of future growth, expansion, and possibilities is met with success manifesting this month. You may find some projects are moving ahead of schedule now. Let this unfold organically and see where it takes you. Be ready for a sweet surprise. CURE: If this is where your office is, ensure you have a Brass Dragon Cure up high on the left of where you sit for protection, power, and influence. Have a bouquet of 9 silk Purple Flowers in an Earthen vase to motivate the 9 Star. This is also a place to put a Vision Board of all you dream of creating and manifesting this year. This can also be a wish list or a letter to the Universe.

For students and artists, place a Blue or Green jar of pencils, pens, and brushes on the desk or in a prominent place.
The 2 Star is in the South East with the Annual 5 Star. These two Earth Stars are weakened by the Woody nature of the South East but still wield enough power to threaten violence, sickness, significant loss, and the worst possible scenarios. ABANDON THIS ROOM FOR APRIL. Ideally this room should NOT be used at all this year. Close blinds, windows, doors and keep this room dark and unoccupied. That is your greatest protection. If this is your front door, use another entrance if possible. DO NOT DISTURB INSIDE OR OUT WITH CONSTRUCTION, NOISE, DEEP DIGGING, OR ANY COMMOTION. This is literally like walking through a field with hidden land mines. CURE: If the front door, hang a ba-gua mirror and flank the front steps with gold Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and Wu Lou health gourds on the bedside stands to protect your health. Continue to focus on the innate energy of this direction with Wood furnishings and the colors green, floral fabrics, and healthy plants (no cacti).
The 7 Star joins the Annual 1 Star in the South and here we find the Metal 7 Star is embattled by the Fiery South and the Watery 1 Star. The South is where we find our reputation, position, fame or recognition. This month you are more likely to be slandered, be demoted, suffer financial loss or have injury/ surgery related to heart, circulation, lungs, respiration, bladder, kidneys and sexual organs. This is a really problematic area for a bedroom, an office and a front/ main entrance. CURE: Beautiful lush plants, colors of green keep the South fed and watered and content. Be very mindful of this area of your house because the situation could turn at any time.
The 9 Star is in the South West with the Annual 3 Star. Now the grumpy 3 Star is already in a weak position here in the SW but the 9 Star is very comfortable here, so the possibility is strong for a far favorable outcome here in April. CURE: The annual cure is a Red Happy Hotei and this month adding the color purple – this can be something like purple flowers, throw blanket, or pillows.
The 5 Star is in the West where the Annual 8 Star is visiting. The wealth potential of the 8 Star is stained black by the negative threat of the 5 Star. The potential here for disaster is great. This could be injury, illness, financial loss, and other calamities. CURE: 8 Yellow silk flowers along with 8 Chinese coins is the annual cure. If this is a front/main door, hang a ba-gua mirror and flank the front steps with gold Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and Wu Lou health gourds on the bedside stands to protect your health. A round Metal bowl is useful this month as well. DO NOT DISTURB THIS AREA WITH LOUD NOISES, CONSTRUCTION, OR COMMOTION.
The 4 Star is in the North West with the Annual 7 Star. This is like surgery, bad injuries with sharp objects, and also bankruptcy or grave financial loss, as well as slander that wrecks your standing. The negativity in this room is visited by the creative, romantic, fertile 4 Star but the Woody nature of that energy is greatly severed by the Metal of the NW and the 7 Star. Be mindful of relationship disputes turning violent, of students suffering bullying or other problems, and creative projects being jeopardized. A terrible room for an office, studio, main entrance or bedroom this month. CURE: BLUE drains the 7 Star, not water but the color blue. If a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets. If the front door, hang a ba-gua mirror and flank the front steps with gold Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and Wu Lou health gourds on the bedside stands to protect your health. Add BLUE accents in rugs, pillows, towels, bedding, etc.
The 8 Star in the North with the Annual 2 Star. The good fortune of the 8 Star is lost here as this is Earth battling Water and add to that the Sickness 2 Star is sitting here all year wreaking havoc of weight issues, bloating, indigestion, choking, stomach ailments. CURE: If this is a main/ front door, hang a ba-gua mirror and flank the front steps with gold Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and Wu Lou health gourds on the bedside stands to protect your health. Metal is the best element to focus on right now with colors of Gray, Black, and White with a splash of Blue. Keep this area quiet with no disruptions.
