(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is Running Board (軫). Calendrical interpretations stress that it is called the "Celestial Carriage." The basic idea is that the car(riage) is flying across the sky, and, by extension, through life (today...in Lunar World). Whatever is done today comes back in positive terms. Top-notch. Best-of-the-best.

The jianchu "personality" is Grasp (執), and it is also so wonderfully good that you'll have to pinch yourself to remind you about this great day. There is so much winning today that you are going to get tired of all the winning. Stretch yourself, grasp, reach for the stars.
There are three beneficent asterisms today, including Generational Virtue (歲德), Linked Days (合日), and Six Linkages (六合).
There are four inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, three in-between (中) times, and five auspicious (吉) times. Creeping auspiciousness inflation.
Things to Avoid
|[c] Haircut RF|
It's a bad day for Lawsuits and Litigation (詞訟), Repairing Granaries (修倉), and Moving Soil (動土). Think about these (and then don't do them...in Lunar World).
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the twenty-sixth () day of the second lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #10: guiyou (癸酉). 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 Metal. Today is Metal, and tomorrow is Fire.
It's a solid day for twelve different things, including Marriage Engagements (訂婚), Marriage Alliances (嫁娶), Haircuts (理髮), and Seizing and Capturing (捕捉).

(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Five Voids (五虛) and Widespread Pond (咸池). The third is one of the "Zodiacal Mouths" asterisms (every one of the twelve zodiacal creatures has a "mouth asterism") is Chicken Mouth (雞口). I like to think of it as Fowl Mouth, and now go wash out your mouth with
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omen is Bifurcation (丫). The miscellaneous activities are Edifice (房), Gate (門), and Bed (牀). Nobody knows what they mean, and I mean that, based upon years of fieldwork.
