(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is "Mound" or "Tower" (婁). It is really, really good, people.

Calendrical interpretations stress that it has happy associations of domestic concord. It is a good day for construction, marriages will result in pockets full of gold, and all people will enjoy their blissful days. It's just about the best-of-the-best.
The jianchu "personality" is "Destroy" (破), and it is the worst-of-the-worst. There is no other way to spin "Destroy," other than to say that you should keep your nose clean and stay out of trouble (incarceration will go badly if it starts on a "Destroy" day.
The beneficent asterisms are Jade Hall (玉堂) and Expelling Spirits (除神). They're good.
The day begins with four straight hours (into the middle of the night) of "in-between" times., followed by a staccato of good, bad, and in-between all-day long. The breakdown is three inauspicious (凶) hours, six in-between (中) hours, and three auspicious (吉) hours.
|[c] Soy Sauce RF|
It's a bad day for Mixing Sauces (合醬), and Mourning Visits (行喪).
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the fourteenth (十四) day of the second lunar month, and the full moon comes tomorrow. The "cycle of sixty" day is #58: xinyou (辛酉).
Elemental (and Phased)
(Section Five—Character 5)
Today's slice of the "Five Phases" (sometimes called the "Five Elements") is Wood (木). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Wood. Today is Wood, and tomorrow is Water.

Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are even more ominous than ususal. Among them are Lunar Destruction (月破) and Lunar Taboo (月忌). In addition, we find Disastrous Balefulness. And, as if to run salt back into the wound, we are told to avoid mourning...again with Repeat Mourning (復喪).

See You Tomorrow
Do your best to enjoy the whiplash day that Friday will be (at least in Lunar World). Don't mix sauces, and feel free smashing up your garage, sun room, or patio (make sure it's your property, though). I'll see you back here tomorrow night for a preview of Saturday in Lunar World.
