TCM Time Medicine Guideline And Zodiacs' Fortune For Yin Water Rabbit Year (2023)


Welcome to the year of Yin Water Rabbit year! As you may know, Chinese ancestors traditionally arranged and combined the 10 Heavenly Stems and the 12 Earthly Branches into 60 combinations. Different celestial stems and earthly branches represent different yin-yang and five-element attributes, which transform, derive, and develop each other, bringing different movement modes, directions, and strengths of qi movements.


Every year, every month, every day, and every hour has its specific combination of heavenly stems and Earthly Branches. These combinations are arranged in a cycle according to the law, thus forming the time medicine of traditional Chinese medicine. As early as in the Yellow Emperor's (Canon of Traditional Chinese Medicine), the ancestors of Chinese medicine summarized the climate phenomena and health information produced by these combinations to guide people's life and health preservation. These are the five movements and six qi that we will discuss today.

According to the theory of Huangdi Neijing, in 2023, Yangming Dryness (Metal) will dominate for the first 6 months, Shaoyin emperor Fire will dominate the second half of the year, and there will be a lack of fire throughout the year (relatively speaking). In 2023, the heavenly stem is Gui-Yin Water, and the earthly branch is Mao-Yin Wood. Compared with Yang Water & Wood in 2022, the extreme changes and confrontation will still exist but will be gentler.


In this case, people are prone to catching a cough, swollen throat, sudden chills and fever, trembling, constipation, etc. The symptoms of the attack are all impatience, and the change and change will occur alternately. The stable climate will be disrupted, and the clear and hot qi will stand in the qi exchange. In 2023, people should eat white or red grains to stabilize righteousness and eliminate evil. Use salty, bitter, and pungent flavors to soothe the qi movement internally. And sweating methods to relieve cold disease on the body's surface level, a heat-clearing method to get rid of pathogenic factors in the body, and use dispersing method to treat febrile diseases.


Besides the above, we also need to pay attention to Fertility and Gynecologic Oncology issues. The Earthly Branch Mao, its Chinese character rabbit-Mao 卯, looks like the structure of the ovaries and the uterus. It is similar to the character of Eggs-luan 卵, only adding two seeds. Traditionally, it also stands for romance, relationship, and fecundity. Yin wood symbolizes grass, sprouts, vines, and bushes. Compared with big forest trees, Yin woods are more flexible and contains more energy for growth. Thus, 2023 is an excellent year to conceive. If you are thinking about having a baby, let the environmental power help you! Unfortunately, these two seeds can also represent cysts and fibroids. Considering the deficiency of fire throughout the year, people are prone to endogenous phlegm dampness to cause local stasis, leading to cysts and tumors. Many people have missed routine checkups during COVID. Now is the time to book one too!


TCM Healing Center will post health tips for each phase throughout the year according to the TCM Time Medicine theory and guide our community to live a healthy and happy year! Stay following!



12 Zodiacs' Fortune And Health Information

Since Yin water and wood consider milder conflicts and gentle growing. Most people can enjoy a little calm and leisure break. However, there is a similar idea to the Grand Duke of Jupiter in Traditional Chinese culture; we call it Tai Sui. If you were born in the year of Rabbit, Rat, Dragon, Horse, and Rooster, you'd need to take extra care of yourself.

Rabbit: Hiding and dormant, breaking through once

Year of birth: 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011.

Fortune and health situation: People born under the rabbit zodiac coincide with the year of the Tai Sui, so they will have fortune stuck, and minor conflicts happen more often. They are easily caught in gossip and demanding work situations. This year, there will be auspicious stars to reduce troubles and burdens. Although fortunes in all aspects have been disturbed, there are still opportunities for a reversal. Those who belong to the rabbit can take the opportunity to reserve energy, keep a low profile, accumulate wealth when relaxed this year, and wait for others. When the day comes, he makes a high-profile comeback and reverses his lousy luck. The seventh month of the lunar calendar will be more effective in acting on essential things.

This year for Rabbits, the star taking care of relationships and marriage is weak, and the road to love is challenging. The star charging in the career is sluggish. It is okay to cope with daily work needs or the skills and tasks you have mastered, but completing new or complex tasks is challenging. Wealthy luck is easily affected by insufficient performance in a career. In terms of health, it is easy to have bad feelings, so this year, we should exercise more, pay attention to seasonal supplements, improve physical fitness, and protect our health.


Rat: When something breaks, be careful to avoid disaster

Year of birth: 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020.

Fortune and health situation: People who belong to the rat will be sentenced to Tai Sui in 2023. There will be many minor accidents, so we cannot be too cautious, especially in matters such as signing a contract or negotiating with others. This year is prone to contract disputes or official troubles. Although fortune has ups and downs, if people who belong to the rat can maintain a positive attitude, communicate with others in a friendly way, and release more good intentions, they can also resist disasters and improve their luck.

As we mentioned earlier, rabbit year also stands for relationships and romance. Rat is the one most easily affected. Rats will easily be entangled in complicated relationships if they are overwhelmed by desire without careful investigation. Wealthy luck is good for those with stable jobs or office workers who work on large platforms but need to be better for those who run businesses or are engaged in the financial industry. Healthy condition is good, the autoimmunity is in good condition, and the chance of disease attack is not high.


Dragon: It takes work to develop. Too much talk brings trouble.

Year of birth 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012.

Fortune and health situation: People born under the sign of the dragon will experience many obstacles in their actions during the year of Tai Sui, especially in new affairs, such as taking over new work tasks and expanding new network resources, and they are more likely to encounter obstacles. It is easy to make bad friends this year, so you should pay more attention to your words and deeds and avoid talking behind your back. The luck of the second and fifth of the lunar calendar will be good, and it is suitable to carry out important affairs. The luck in the first half of the year is more potent than in the year's second half; Dragons will overcome difficulties and seize opportunities.

The love fortune is not that good for Dragons in 2023. But career status is stable. If you want to be promoted, you must continue to make breakthroughs and mobilize your enthusiasm. Although favorable wealth luck is not at its peak, partial wealth luck is still good; side jobs, stocks, and even lotteries will bring luck. In terms of physical health, beware of emotionally dragging down the body.


Horse: Being nice to people will bring the same blessings to yourself

Year of birth 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014.

Fortune and health situation: Horse zodiac people will make some revolution in 2023. You must be very careful with details to avoid big troubles in the future; the conflicts accumulated before will easily break out this year. Horse people also need to think twice before making suggestions or judgments, especially when speaking with new acquaintances and people who are not close enough. In 2023, Horses should abide by the rules in dealing with people and doing things and try to enjoy helping others more.

Love fortune for Horses is not affected by the Tai Sui. It's a good year to start a new relationship or establish a new family. There are few career development opportunities, and finding a job is not easy. It is better to be conservative in seeking wealth than to develop new wealth and enter new fields. Beware of frauds. Regarding health, pay more attention to the spleen, stomach, teeth, and respiratory system.


Rooster: not afraid of obstacles, breaking through oneself

Year of Birth 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

Fortune and health situation: When the fortune is against the Tai Sui, Rooster people will have many twists and turns in 2023. It will be a year in which Rooster people can break through the restrictions in adversity: No matter how difficult things are. Roosters can use their ingenuity to deal with them, solve problems and let everybody see them. They will get more opportunities to move forward. Just be careful not to go too far. Mortal wisdom should not be played. Otherwise, good things will turn into bad things.

The rooster, horse, rat, and rabbit are the four earthly branches in charge of romantic relationships. In the Year of the Rabbit, the rooster forms an intense battle between metal and wood. Specifically, the rooster will show extreme polarization, either locking themselves down or being overactive. Taking some break time to self-care and think about the relationship you expect is always a good idea. Participating in family and religious gatherings will bring luck. Career luck is bitter and sweet, and the second half of the year will usher in a period of improvement. Wealth-luck is relatively stable. Although it is hard to make money, hard work can keep your treasury safe. Take care of your health to prevent contagious diseases during the season change.
