Baby Tiger 2022 and Baby Rabbit 2023

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 2022 and 2023, 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 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.

Of course, your selection will be even more precise if it can also integrate energy data from the day of birth, as well as a breakdown of annual, seasonal and monthly data. Finally, don't forget the usefulness of the middle name when you need to add two elements to rebalance the birth chart of your child.

Baby Rabbit 2023

The Lunar New Year of the Year of the Water Rabbit of the Chinese calendar begins on January 22, 2023 and lasts until February 9, 2024.

In 2023, the Water element is associated with the Chinese zodiac sign of the Rabbit (the main animal of the year). The Water Rabbit is therefore the Pillar of the Year. This is the fourth lunar year following the Year of the Rat 2020 which initiated the start of a new 12 year cycle. A child, boy or girl, born from January 22, 2023 will therefore have the Yin Water Rabbit's Chinese zodiac sign as their first pillar. The Yin aspect of the Water element is characterized by an underground, dark, cold, northern and slow energy. Moreover, associated with the Rabbit, it automatically refers to longevity. A child born in 2023 can expect to have a good start in life. Of a docile, malleable and disciplined character, he will absorb and reflect, like a mirror, the degree of agreement of their parents. If he is well taken care of at home, he will have no difficulty adapting to school. At the social level, he will even serve as an example to others. The Rabbit child generally has intellectual and artistic aptitudes from birth. Unless he falls into the hands of toxic parents unable to provide him with the tools necessary for a balanced life, he will have no trouble achieving his ambitions. Whether at home or at school, his sensitivity and aversion to injustice will push them to express his discontent by both intellectual and physical means, always with a concern for fairness in the means expressed. Regardless of the type of studies or education chosen during adolescence, the Rabbit will succeed wherever he decides to put his bag. Because the child Rabbit's faculty of perception and learning often goes beyond what an adult is capable of realizing. The Rabbit knows how to listen and restore what he has memorized without error. He knows how to defend his friends' causes with great subtlety and tenacity, even if it will be somewhat difficult to decipher his true motivations. However, benevolent by nature, the Rabbit child will have to learn the limits of kindness throughout his life. Because although he is a great advocate for others, he is quite different when it comes to defending his own interests. Also, despite his multiple intellectual abilities, visible from an early age, he can become anxious and self-destructive in the presence of overprotective parents, especially if he is dealing with a Rooster parent who is too strict and critical. In this case, he risks developing psychological problems as he grows up.

Energy deficiencies of the year 2023

In 2023, the main energy deficiencies relate to the Fire, Earth and Metal elements. The consequences and risks associated with a deficiency of the Earth element in a Chinese horoscope can be a tendency to inertia and paranoia. Regarding the Fire element, a lack of this element in a Chinese zodiac birth chart can induce all possible types of violent behavior. Finally, the absence of the Metal element portends loss of money, disloyalty and low self-esteem.
