In this article, we begin by outlining the philosophy that underlies the precepts of Chinese astrology applied to the choice of first names for children. Thus, the role of the 5 elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water) is fundamental in the choice of the first or middle name of a baby when using this method.

In fact, energy rebalancing is done by choosing a first name that completes and corrects the energetic profile of the child's Chinese astral birth chart. After having reviewed the specifics of the Chinese years 2021 and 2022, we suggest adapted solutions that will allow you to choose the luckiest first name for your child.

Baby's first name choice

It is up to the parents to name their children with a first name that shall hopefully contribute to their luck and fortune throughout their life. Chinese astrology is able to shed additional light on this essential step which marks for life the close bond between a child and his parents. For many ancient cultures and civilizations, it is customary to believe that the moment of birth is partly responsible for the character and destiny of the newborn. In this case, Asian peoples who make use of Chinese astrology generally consult the Chinese lunisolar calendar prior to a wedding, a major purchase, or a birth, in order to choose the periods most conducive for their projects to succeed.

How does it works?

The role of the 5 elements

According to the Chinese horoscope, the prediction of future events is usually made from the analysis of the Chinese calendar, since it informs us precisely about the energetic constitution of the 5 elements of nature, based on Wu Xing. Each time cycle, hours, days, months, years, seasons and even centuries (a Chinese zodiac century lasts 60 years) are all governed in turn by a variable energy flow composed of 5 elements. Having a good reading of the interaction between the 5 elements during a given period is enough to predict the favorable outcome or not of an action or a project.

Correction and rebalancing of elements

Regarding the birth of a child, it is first necessary to identify the potential element(s) weaknesses or deficiencies present on his Chinese astral birth chart. The first name of the child is then chosen according to the analysis of his energy charter. The objective is to fill the energy deficit(s) observed on the daily schedule and thereby to recreate a balance between the 5 elements of the birth chart of the newborn. For example, a baby who was born one day reporting a Wood element deficiency is likely to be more fragile and more prone to bad luck during periods governed by the Wood element. That is why it is in his interest that his parents give him a name etymologically correlated with the Wood element, in order to neutralize the negative effects resulting from the energy imbalance that occurred when he came into the world.

Let us emphasize that the main objective in choosing an appropriate name for your child should always be linked to the harmonization of his / her birth chart through the 5 elements. Also, it is essential to read the energy distribution of the day of your child's birth in order to choose the most judicious and therefore the luckiest first name.

Baby Ox 2021

The Lunar New Year of the Year of the Metal Ox of the Chinese calendar begins on February 12, 2021 and lasts until January 31, 2022.

In 2021, the Metal element is associated with the Chinese zodiac sign of the Ox (animal of the year). The Metal Ox is therefore the Pillar of the Year. This is the second lunar year following the Year of the Rat 2020 which marked the beginning of a new 12-year cycle. A child, boy or girl, born from February 12, 2021 will consequently be of the Chinese zodiac sign of the Yin Metal Ox (or Yin Metal Buffalo). The Yin appearance of Metal is characterized by an internalized, dark, cold and rather slow energies. Let's remember that whether in a natal chart or for any other type of astrological or Feng Shui interpretation, an absolute Yin, devoid of Yang counterpart, can't be virtuous nor beneficial. As a fundamental tenet of Taoist tradition, the Yin Yang theory is fully integrated in the harmonization principles of the 5 elements of WuXing.

Energy deficiencies of the year 2021

In 2021, the main energy deficiencies concern the elements Wood and Fire. However, none these two deficiencies are observable simultaneously during the year. The consequences and related risks of a deficiency of the Wood element in a Chinese horoscope can be a tendency to hyper-emotivity and phobia. Regarding the Fire element, a lack of this element in a Chinese birth chart can induce all possible types of violent behaviors.

Baby Tiger 2022

The Lunar New Year of the Year of the Water Tiger of the Chinese calendar begins on February 1, 2022 and lasts until January 21, 2023.

In 2022, the Water element in its Yang form is associated with the Chinese zodiac sign of the Tiger, the animal that rules the lunar year. Chinese popular thought portends that a year under the third zodiac sign of the Chinese calendar is often a turbulent time during which heroic and risky acts as well as rising political movements and significant historical changes can take place. This is a clear invitation to be more careful than usual. Regarding births occurring in the Year of the Tiger 2022, let's point out that people born under the protection of this animal sign tend to have more luck in life if they come into the world between sunrise and sunset. They should thereafter be able to benefit from the protection of sunlight. At the level of the 5 elements of Nature, the constructive relationship that exists between Water and Wood (Water nourishes Wood) allows the Tiger child of 2022 to be generously gifted with the expansive, active and innovative characteristics of his Chinese zodiac sign. At the same time, the young boy or girl shall develop the wisdom that other Tigers often lack, because the Water element allows emotions to be better channelled. However, his intrinsic qualities of altruism, intuition and temperance still need to be consolidated by a complementary pillar (month, day, hour) to his annual pillar of birth. This will allow the Tiger child born in 2022 to cultivate the path of wisdom.

Energy deficiencies of the year 2022

According to the Chinese horoscope, in 2022, the main energy channels are defined around the elements Wood, Fire, Earth and Water. Thus, most of the year 2022 is covered by these energies which are in harmony with most of the Chinese signs. Only the Rooster and the Monkey may find themselves in relative difficulty due to the recurrent deficiency of the Metal element. Remember that a Metal deficiency refers to obsessive disorders and paranoia at the psychological level. On the professional level, this Metal deficiency can be the source of financial mismanagement, corruption, unwillingness and legal problems. In love, infidelity, the lack of marital prospects risk having emotional repercussions that are sometimes difficult to resolve smoothly.
