|[a] Lunar Preview Dream RF|
(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is black-ink Heart-Mind (心), and it is really not-that-good. Calendrical interpretations stress that (at least in Lunar World) it is a lousy day to build, and that legal cases result in (your) imprisonment. It also stresses that when things go south on a Heart-Mind day, they go badly...very quickly.
|[b] Kitten Amnesty? RF|
There are three beneficent asterisms today: Generational Virtue (歲德), Heavenly Amnesty (天赦), and Engendered Vapor (生氣). They're good (by definition).
There are four inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, three in-between (中) times, and five auspicious (吉) times. Creeping auspiciousness inflation...I'm tellin' ya.
Things to Avoid

Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the first (初一) day of the third lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #15: wuyin (戊寅). 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 Earth (土). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Water. Today is Earth, and tomorrow is Earth.

Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Long Star (長星), Blood Taboo (血忌), and Repeat Mourning (復喪). There is another, too, and it is one of our "Zodiacal Mouth" baleful asterisms: Tiger Mouth (虎口). Scary stuff.
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens are White (白) and Fire (火). The miscellaneous activities are Edifice (房), Furnace (爐), and Bed (牀). Nobody knows what they mean (I am not kidding; my statement is based upon twenty years of fieldwork).
|[e] Qingming RF|
Have a good (snowy...in my neck of the woods) Monday, and be Open. I'll see you back here on Monday night for a glimpse of Tuesday's lunar calendar.
