No Dragon Feet.
Earth Dragon month, Wood Horse year.
April 5th 04:54am.
The Earth-in-Wood that is the Dragon always makes for change. Master Zhongxian Wu suggest we ”purify and change old patterns” while “an unwavering attitude will help us accomplish tasks (now) even if we bump into some tough situations.” It’s moving-on time.
Change, as the man said, is the only constant. But sometimes it can feel overdue. Not possible of course but sometimes we know that that job, that mission, that relationship is over but it limps on. Now may be the time to act. If a change is gonna come, April is the likely time. This as Master Wu implies, may take courage. An Earth Dragon may make it easier – the Earth is always restless – or more difficult because it’s big and solid. The harder they come….
The Dragon in the Dragon Month.
Dragons (1964, 1976, 1988, 2000) suffer the so-called self clash; they are not reckoned to play nice among themselves. In fact the Dragon is often said to be the most powerful of the Chinese Zodiac but this power is accompanied by fragile ego. Dragon times like the Dragons themselves are demanding and magical. April is the time of transformation; Spring becomes Summer, Wood becomes Fire, views opened by the fallen leaves close up again; everything changes.. It’s in the air. Not just for Dragons.
So give everyone but especially Dragons, extra space now. In the words of Keane, everyone is changing and neither you nor they know what fresh shape they might be taking up. That last bit isn’t from Keane.

The Dragon Pillars. How Dragon are you?
Birth in the Dragon hour (7-9am): children inherit opportunity & add drive.
Birth in the Dragon month (April*): unemployable.
Birth on the Dragon day: secretly magical but prone to mood swings.
Birth in the Dragon year: light on the face of it, dark within except when it’s the other way round.
* Caution, the Chinese month generally starts and finishes a few days after ours.
Where to do what, when and why.
This month’s lo shu is the 6, to do with winning and losing. This is the month of finicky detail. We can approach it two basic ways: respecting authority or flouting it. Either’s likely to lead to change.
This month: activate or be in the East of whatever space you find yourself. This month it holds the 4 of discovery and all year the 2 of obstacles while its native star is the 3 of moving on. Putting all that together, if you’re brave and hungry for change, hang out East.
