July 2023: From Creating Magic To Reaping Karma
”Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, out of our fear; clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.” – Bruce Barton, Author/Leader
As we traverse the heat of summer 2023, the Earth Horse month has just passed but the potent energy of strong fire remains. The previous Earth Horse & the current Earth Goat month hold remarkable significance for transformation and manifestation. Indeed, both months are strongly linked as a pair anchoring the middle portion of the year, even more so for 2023. June’s Earth Horse month embodied the power of transformative fire, culminating in the manifestation of magical outcomes.
As we enter the July Earth Goat month (July 7 - August 7), both energies of Fire and Earth continue to dominate but with the emphasis tilting towards the strength of the earth element - amplifying the power of manifestation further. There are, however, several “layers” of this earth that can be segregated into. Whether the manifestation stems from the creations of June or the fruition of dedicated work during the spring season, July becomes a solid, tangible ground for materializing previous work & actions.
However, amidst this manifestation, karmic loops unfold, revealing hard truths, less-than-desirable realities and frustrating obstacles that demand our attention and growth. Manifestation is after all, manifestation, regardless of whether the actions and energy expended arose from a conscious intent or not. More telling would be the manifestation outcome - the karmic repercussions - from behaviour or actions led by the subconscious mind.
The July Goat month is a storage or checkpoint month within the summer season. It presents us with a crucial juncture to either elevate ourselves to higher realms through personal transformation or remain in a state of equilibrium. Maintaining the status quo, by itself, is not negative unless it perpetuates stagnation or lack of growth. This month serves as a pivotal opportunity for us to seize the renewal opportunity to forge our personal and spiritual evolution ahead.
For 2023, we are bestowed with a precious opportunity to break through such stagnation or releasing karmic loops, due to the presence of the Water Rabbit. The Rabbit grants us access to rejuvenating energies associated with the wood element, thanks to its “Combination” relationship to the Goat. Bear in mind this renewal opportunity will not be within grasp unless we reach out to it and naturally it will be an uncomfortable process challenging our comfort zones.
”Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation…even so does inaction sap the vigour of the mind.” – Leonardo da Vince
During the summer of 2023, the water element is extremely weak (literally, technically “dead”) as it is dominated by the strong earth element. This imbalance brings a notable absence of wisdom within the energetic framework of July. We need to beware of the perils of obstinacy and stubbornness. Take note of the tendency towards inflexibility that will hinder the natural flow of life. We can become too enflamed and fixated with our own position; so stay fluid and remain receptive to change and others’ opinion.
When it comes to daily endeavours, the prevailing energy pattern during this Earth Goat month is characterized by the need for adjustments and making minor changes. This makes it an opportune month for establishing values, particularly in areas such as negotiations, where fine-tuning levels and pricing are crucial. The energy of the month offers a conducive atmosphere for refining details and reaching mutually beneficial agreements.
As the month progresses, it becomes increasingly important to work towards finalizing deals, as the concluding energies of the month are strong for manifesting bite-sized chunks of tangible outcomes. Harness the power of the heart chakra, where the mind’s logic can blend harmoniously with the heart’s intent. By leveraging this potent energy, we can bring our endeavors to fruition and witness the materialization of our efforts by the end of the month.

As the just-passed Earth Horse month was the forefront of these 2 magical months, our events listing was packed to the brim after our return from mystical Nepal!
First up was my workshop TRANSFORMING GOALS INTO REALITY: Activating Success & Completion Mid-2023 on June 18, dedicated to locking-in the amazing potential of Summer 2023 through Bazi Astrology, Feng Shui activations & use of breathwork. That same evening was dedicated to the “innerwork gym” session honouring the powerful New Moon THE NEW MOON CIRCLE: Finding Internal Illumination.
The following Saturday June 24 was our flagship midyear event NAVIGATING PERIOD 9: Start Strong! Our founder - Jessie Lee - presented updates, forecasts & advice for the remaining 2023, gearing up towards 2024’s start of Period 9. And with the key pieces of The SOUL’S JOURNEY NEPAL 2024 itinerary clicking together during our recent trip, a trip briefing introducing 2024’s journey was promptly held on Sunday, June 25. The response was truly overwhelming! The main slots were taken up before the briefing completed, resulting in a waitlist that was longer than the actual total slots offered.
And after brewing slowly since end 2022, it was finally time for the kick-off of THE SACRED MEN’S CIRCLE: Attuning & Celebrating The Conscious Male on the same evening of June 25. This series of meet-ups — facilitated by yours truly - is dedicated to better harness the divine masculine (and balancing the feminine) for a more wholesome empowerment.
June was indeed truly a magical month where the once-a-year Dragon Departing Day fell on June 27. To collectively harness the auspicious energy on this special day, our largest-to-date “innerwork gym” workshop THE DRAGON DEPARTING DAY Experiential Workshop was held to potently activate inner transformation, letting go & releasing stagnation - leading to freedom that comes with detachment. This was a hybrid session combining the energy of the 50++ live participants with almost 100 more online from around the world.
For the first time ever online, our TEA LEAVES DIVINATION class occurred over July 1-2. Students not only had a headstart into one of the most timeless and elegant tasseography methods, but also learnt methods to be suitably applied to similar divination methods.
As July’s 2nd half will once again see the team embarking on travels, we have focussed events within the 1st half of the month. If you’re looking to urgently make personal breakthroughs to potently connect and thrive in Period 9 (which already begun unofficially last year), do make sure you join BREAKTHROUGH WITH BAZI IN PERIOD 9 on July 8. This is a full day workshop from 10am - 5pm.
Lastly, we’re thrilled to introduce yet another new, on-ground workshop as part of our “innerwork gym” series! The kick-off to F.A.T. BODY MOVEMENT: Unlock Your Flow, Awareness & Transcendence will be on Sunday, July 9 from 12:30 - 2PM. Join us for a transcendental experience connecting body movement to self awareness, to breakthrough limitations to reach your TRUE potential!
Here’s to a powerful & profound Earth Goat month!
