|[a] Scary Day RF|
(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is Wings (翌), and it is devastatingly bad. Many centuries ago, this constellation was basically positive, but not today. Calendrical interpretations stress that it is gloomy, with chronic illnesses, calamities, and even finding spouses in the arms of lovers after a long day away. Bad, bad, bad (um, in Lunar World, at least).
|[b] Generational Horse RF|
The jianchu "personality" is glowingly wonderful red ink goodness Decide (定). It's among the best-of-the-best. Decide. It is empowering, so Decide and make the most of your day, your week, your month, your year, your life. It's a beautiful thing.
There are three beneficent asterisms today, including Generational Horse (歲馬), Heavenly Virtue (天德), and Lunar Virtue (月德). They're coated in red-ink goodness.
There are four inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, two in-between (中) times, and six auspicious (吉) times. Auspiciousness inflation, I'm tellin' ya.
Things to Avoid
|[c] Mole Becoming RF|
It's a bad day for Opening Irrigation Sluices (開渠), Putting Things Into Water (放水), and Positioning Beds (安牀). Think about these. And don't go near that water (or move that bed).
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the twenty-fifth () day of the second lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #9: renshen (壬申). The days cycle—1, 2, 3, 58, 59, 60, 1, 2, 3...—in perpetuity.
Elemental (and Phased)
(Section Five—Character 5)
Today's slice of the "Five Phases" (sometimes called the "Five Elements") is Metal (金). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Earth. Today is Metal, and tomorrow is Metal.
|[d] Entering Study RF|
It's a solid day for a whole grab-bag of stuff, including Entering Study (入學), Sweeping Rooms (掃舎), Going to Market (開市), and Binding Nets (結網). There are eight more, too, so click the link.
Fear Your Unlucky Stars
|[e] Granary RF|
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Fire Star (火星), Death Vapor (死氣), and Lunar Repression (月厭). They are all really bad (and especially the last one).
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens is White (白). The miscellaneous activities are Granary (倉), Furnace (爐), and Storehouse (庫). Nobody knows what they mean.
See You Tomorrow
So, people, keep your head on straight (and avoid the swivel). Stay away from the water and, above all, Decide. I'll see you back here tomorrow night for a preview of Wednesday in Lunar World.
