(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is Base (氐). Calendrical interpretations stress that it is starkly unlukcy, and that calamities will be a result of failure to pay proper deference to elders. Marriages undertaken on this day will result in people breading into your house, and travels by boat will result in shipwreck. Sounds pretty bleak, right?

The jianchu "personality" is Completion (成), and it is wonderfully, gooey, red-ink, goodness. Calendar guides describe this a a great day for doing many of the "ten-thousand things." Almost everything you do will be fortunate (er, in Lunar World). On top of it, think it over. Completion has so much good advice baked into it that it is worth paying careful attention.
There are four beneficent asterisms today, including Three Linkages (三合), Heavenly Happiness (天喜), Heavenly Physician (天醫), and Not General (不將).
There are three inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, four in-between (中) times, and five auspicious (吉) times. It's a little bit inflationary.
Things to Avoid
|[c] Kitchen Kitten RF|
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the twenty-ninth () day of the second lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #13: bingzi (丙子). 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 Water (水). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Fire. Today is Water, and tomorrow is Water.
It's a solid day for sixteen different things (in particular, and almost everything except cursing, really, in general). Some of them are Studying (入學), Physician Visits (醫病), and Repairing and Constructing (修造). Click the link for the rest.

Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
Among the baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Great Loss-Void (大亡空) and Stirring-up Dragon-Water (觸龍水). One of my "favorite" negative stars is the travel avoidance star named Return Taboo (歸忌). It's not too convenient (in Lunar World) if you need to get home.
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens are White (白) and Earth (地). The miscellaneous activities are Pestle (碓), Stove (灶), and Kitchen (廚). Nobody knows what they mean.

So have a good day (it's also called "Saturday" for many of you). Complete things, and I'll see you back here, Saturday night, for a Sunday calendar preview.
