(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is red-ink Edifice (房). Calendrical interpretations stress that it is building and construction activities are auspicious today, and the day vaguely connects to luxury, happiness, and longevity. It's really good, as we say back home.

The jianchu "personality" is black-ink Receive (收), which is somewhat inauspicious, but really not half bad (well, maybe a little more than half bad. Calendrical interpretations stress that it is a good day to hunker down and do things around the office, but not a particularly good one for more public activities. And never forget the "receive" idea here. Why is the idea not exactly "lucky?" Well, because it is better to give than receive. Think it over.
There are three beneficent asterisms today, including Heavenly Lunarity (天月), Virtuous Linkage (德合), and Not General (不將). By definition, they're good, so run with them.
There are four inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, three in-between (中) times, and five auspicious (吉) times.I am still surprised that I have not seen many 4-4-4 days lately (and it seemed that, for years, almost every day was four inauspicious, four in-between, and four auspicious). This one is close, but let's keep an eye on this.

Things to Avoid
It's a bad day for Haircuts and Styling (理髮), Trimming Nails (整甲), and Hunting (田獵). On the actual translation, I have somewhat fanciful translations of the characters for the first and last. Check them out.
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the thirtieth (三十) and final day of the second lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #14: dingchou (丁丑). 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 Water. Today is Water, and tomorrow is Earth.

Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Water Scar (水痕), Orphan Hostel (寡宿), and Five Voids (五虛). Every one of them should send tremors of concern through your nervous system.
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens are White (白) and Spirit (神). The miscellaneous activities are Granary (倉), Toilet (厠), and Storehouse (庫). Nobody knows what they mean, but I will suggest that you avoid confusing granary or storehouse with...toilet.
See You Tomorrow
Be careful out there (especially if you are driving in early morning sleet and snow in the upper Midwest). I'll see you back here Sunday night for a preview of Monday in Lunar World.
