2023 Yin Water Rabbit – Heaven Luck Forecasts

2023 Yin Water Rabbit – Heaven Luck Forecasts


When it comes to yearly predictions, most Feng Shui Masters use the period in early Spring to construct a Bazi or Four Pillars Chart to predict the coming year’s events.

In their predictions, some Feng Shui Masters will use the Qi Men Dun Jia (QMDJ) or I-Ching divination.

Different Feng Shui Masters use different methods.

I was taught to use the JiaZi (甲子) cycle or sexagenary cycle, also known as the Stems-and-Branches system. It is a cycle of sixty terms used for telling time in the old days.

Yearly predictions, there are three layers to look into. They are the:

  1. Heaven Luck,
  2. Earth Luck (or Feng Shui) and
  3. Man luck (Animal Sign Luck)

For this year’s predictions, the elements of the Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch of the year are used.

Yearly predictions can be useful information for someone to make informed decisions. However, to be honest, it is not 100% accurate. You cannot rely on these annual predictions alone. Further analysis of the individual circumstances is required to achieve a more accurate picture. 

2023, in JiaZi cycle, is the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit year.

The year of the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit starts on the 4th of February, 2023. However, the Heaven energy surfaces from the winter solstice, which is on the 22nd of December 2022.


Heaven Luck is to predict major world events, weather, and natural disasters or acts of God. So people can prepare well for it. For example, people can increase their insurance premiums in the areas that may affect them. Or even strengthen their rooftops.

In Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui all start from the elements of the Heavenly Stem and the Earthly Branches.

Identifying the Key Elements

The Heavenly Stem (HS) for 2023 is GUI (癸), and GUI is the Yin Water element.

Yin Water GUI (癸) represents drizzles and dew. It combines with Wu (戊).

The Earthly Branch is Mao (卯). Mao is purely a Wood element. There is no hidden stems in Mao.

The Mao (卯) known as:

  1. The wood element is the prosperity of the water combination.
  2. Mao (卯) is one of the peach blossom stars.
  3. The Mao (卯) is represented by the animal sign RABBIT. That is why it is called the Year of the Rabbit.

To be exact, the Stem and Branch in 2023 add up together, making the year Yin Water Wood-Rabbit year.

In classical feng shui, the way of arranging the Heavenly Stem (HS) & Earthly Branch (EB), is placing the HS on top of the EB.

GUI (癸) is Yin Water element on top.
Mao (卯) is Yin Wood element underneath.

Focusing on 2023 Elements

The Melodic element for 2023 is Metal. (壬寅癸卯金箔金).

Metal is finance, banking insurance, and tangible metal, such as iron, silver, and gold.

In Feng Shui annual flying star, the Number #4 star comes to the Centre. The #4 star at the Central palace shows the most eye-catching issue. It relates to academics, education, study, culture, love affairs, and sex scandals.

The number of Dragons producing water is only 1. It will be a dry and possibly even drought year in 2023.

With the above information, we can foresee the following issues in the year of the Yin Water-Rabbit.

  1. In the year of the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit element year, the top level (Water) and bottom level (Wood) is in a producing or enhancing cycle. There is no conflict relationship between the top and bottom levels. It looks like the bottom level will be supported by whatever the top level’s decisions.
  2. 2023 is the year of the Yin Water Wood-Rabbit. It is Yin Water and Wood element year. The water element represents wisdom, and the Wood element represents Kindness. Top-levels should handle issues wisely and kindly to develop brighter solutions and promote a more peaceful world.
  3. Yin Water is drizzle and dew. There will be fewer water issues compared with 2022. We can see in some areas, and there will be drought. There is only one dragon producing water. In 2022 there were 8 dragons producing water. That was why 2022 had many water issues.
  4. Mao (卯) is the peach blossom star. Peach blossom star generally is good for the entertainment, and sex industries.
  5. Mao (卯) is the peach blossom star also means love affair, sex scandals… more and more such incidents like illicit romance, sex scandals, and sexual affairs will be shown on the news.
  6. Mao (卯) is the academic star of the GUI (癸), so the schools, education sectors, literature, art, and cultural development will benefit. More and more students return to campus.
  7. GUI (癸) and Mao (卯) are both Yin elements. Yin is inside, or the dark side, and slow. It is not opened and not easily seen. Conspiracies, secretive, back stabbings, and assassinations in the year’s second half.
  8. Yin Water GUI(癸) enhances YIN Wood Mao(卯) Rabbit, The Wood element becomes strong, and it can weaken the Earth element. However, unlike in 2022, Yang Wood had a stronger impact. This year 2023, It can still be disasters related to Earth elements, house prices, earthquakes, landslides, and mine incidents. However, due to the Yin element, it will be just slow and moderate. It is not deep down. It is just below the earth’s surface.
  9. Referring to #8 above, logical thinking, below the earth’s surface, can be tunnels. Vehicle tunnels, train tunnels, pedestrian tunnels, or illegal smuggling tunnels, there are bigger issues in 2023.
  10. Mao (卯) is in the East direction, the Zhen Gua sector, so it can also be seen as cars, carriages (Vehicles). There will be more accidents about cars and carriages in the news in 2023, inside tunnels.
  11. Referring to #10 above, on the hand, Yin Water GUI(癸) is on top of the Zhen Gua (Car). The image looks like a “water car.” It seems the Hydro Powered car will get more attention.
  12. Mao (卯) Rabbit and You (酉) Rooster are in a clashing relationship. Companies in the poultry business, especially chickens, companies with Rooster logos will experience a strong impact in 2023.
  13. Poultry farming (Particularly Chickens, eggs sectors) will face hardship.
  14. Mao (卯) Rabbit and You (酉) Rooster are in a clashing relationship. The rooster sector is Europe area. Europe will experience unease and unstable. If you have business there, make sure you plan ahead.
  15. Mao (卯) is the Nobleman star to the GUI (癸). Nobleman means Godsend helper. Nobleman often helps someone overcome their difficulties. Particularly, in 2023 is for someone born in the year with the last digit 2 or 3. (1952, 1953, 1962, 1963, 1972, 1974, 1982, 1983, 1992, 1993….)
  16. Mao (卯) Rabbit is the Wood element. It also represents nerve systems (Head), hair, and large intestine. We can see more issues in these areas. Pay attention to your diet. Start your mediation today.
  17. (I keep this one from my last year’s prediction) YIN (寅) Tiger wood is the Lung Meridian line in acupuncture. The lung issue problem (Covid-19) is still not completely going away in 2022. The problem Covid-19 should be subsided from August 2022 and closed its chapter by early 2023.
  18. In the year of the Yin Water Rabbit, the annual flying star #4 flies to the center palace. The number 4 symbolizes culture, art, academics, education, love affair or even sex scandals. It matches Mao’s (卯) Rabbit energy.

THE MELODIC ELEMENT 2022 & 2023 IS THIN METAL. 壬寅癸卯金箔金 (thin gold sheet)

The Melodic element is a “Thin gold Sheet” (金箔金) for 2022, 2023. The Melodic element stays the same every two years.

From a melodic element point of view, a “Thin Gold Sheet” relates to Metals or precious metals. Rare earth, lithium, nickel, copper, cobalt, and so on will become more in demand, and prices will go up.

“Thin gold Sheet” (金箔金), Metal element controls Wood element in the year of the Rabbit, Wood element will be hurt and results in more deforestation or environmental issues.


The annual Feng Shui flying star number 4 flies to the center palace.

The number of dragons producing water is 1. It will be a dry year in 2023, and in some areas, we will start to see drought.


In short, in the YIN Water Wood-Rabbit year, the yearly elements (Water and Wood), the melodic element (metal), and the annual flying stars Qi at the center (Earth). They are producing different outcomes in different layers/sectors.

Heaven Luck cycle is out of our control. We cannot control it. What we can do is prepare ourselves, set up and activate the good yearly feng shui qi for the house we live in and the office we work in.

There are two other articles, the Earth Luck and Man Luck predictions, to address the Feng Shui Qi of a location and personal fortune, 12 animal signs’ luck. I suggest you read them.
