Happy New Year and Welcome to 2023 YIN WATER (BLACK) RABBIT YEAR

Every year, during the month of January, I review all information at my disposal as I learned from the ancient practices from Feng Shui to create a guide for what the energy of the next year may have in store for us and how to best navigate it properly for greater chances of happiness, health and a positive life.  This Water Rabbit 2023 Year: Feng Shui annual predictions are below, with my 5-tips for managing the energy of 2023 with grace. A few years back a few friends and colleagues started asking me to share this, so here we are. Of course, all of this is my own personal guesses and thoughts on how the next year may play out and nothing is a guarantee but it is fun to try to see into the future.

The best way to predict the future is to create it.

First, we see where we are right now – in the Yin Water Rabbit Year 2023. The Lunar calendar launched into this with the Spring Festival on 5 February 2023. This is the year for PREPARING.  Now to understand a little more of what this year has in store for us, it is a good idea to look at the WHOLE picture.



Yin represents female energy; receiving, submission, softness, dark, warm moon energy. This is very different than the YANG energy of the last years Water Tiger Energy, which was the opposite energy with bright, bold, active energy. For 2023, this will feel like a great shift of the energy from a more direct and forceful energy to a much softer and kinder one.


BLACK is symbolic for the element of Water and again 2023 is with the Water element just as was 2022. This element is unpredictable and changing throughout the year so we mist note that there will be changes and surprises throughout the upcoming year. Typically in Feng Shui water can be auspicious but it must be managed wisely.


This animal represents good fortune (lucky rabbit’s foot, witches transforming into rabbits, the magicians pet rabbit, etc.) and fertility (Easter ‘s Bunny Rabbit is due to the Pagan goddess of fertility because of rabbit’s energetic breeding!). They also are calm and peaceful creatures, earnest and proud plus they are reactive, and will escape as needed.

The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.

Thomas S. Monson

OVERVIEW SUMMARY LAST FEW YEARS: good to look where we are coming from, especially after these past few years and the Rat started the 12 year Chinese Animal cycle. The last Water Rabbit  year was in 1963 and key things that happened that year included the assassination of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, a nuclear test ban treaty between US and USSR, medical advances in transplants of human organs and the first women in Space.
  1. Yang Water Rat. A year of SURVIVAL;  Clashing energy caused friction and hardship with was evident with the global pandemic. But it was a time to forge a new direction since forced to reinvent the way of the world. This was a year to remind us that we need to be part of a community and work tougher, look at the future, clean up our internal messy homes and make sure to add some color/spice to our lives in order to stay at peace. (My 5 tips in 2020: Collaborations, Long-Term, Active, Paperwork, Color your Home)
  1. Yang Metal Ox.  A year of GROUNDING; After the dynamic energy shifts of the previous year, this year saw a massive slow down with sadness, grieving and rebuilding energy finally taking root. Slowly consistent hard work brought in change, but slow and steady and messy process. In 2021 it was a year that we were forced to slow down, refocus ourselves on what really matters and try to rebuild new things in a new world and self-care became a priority. (My 5 tips for 2021: Together, Slow, Calm, Release, Nurture)
  1. Yang Water Tiger. A year of CHANGE; A year that started off wildly fast with changes and drama throughout shifting from the slow Ox energy to the Wild Tiger. The Tiger energy was about keeping pace and being able to pivot. Wars, tragic climate conditions and raising inflation highlighted a fast-paced year making it challenging to keep up with all that was going on. Efforts to remain positive paid off for those able to do this, and for those struggling with positivity, it became a year of introspection and realistic assessment of the world in all its messy glory. (My 5 tips for 2022: Bold Action, Flexibility, Positivity, Realistic, Home Improvements)

 2023. Yin Water Rabbit. A year of PREPARING.
