|[a] Cat Preview RF|
(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is Net (畢). Calendrical interpretations stress that it has the sense of catching loads of fish in your nets. By extension, you will catch all sorts of things in your nets if you handle things correctly. It is a good day for building, and even burials. Long life is assured to children born on marriages today
|[b] Irrigation RF|
The jianchu "personality" is Establish (建). Although it is printed in black ink, it is pretty darned good. Commence new ventures, start business deals—establish stuff. It's a bad day for outdoor activities, though.
There are two beneficent asterisms today: Heavenly Virtue (天德) and Lunar Virtue (月德). They're good.
There are three inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, three in-between (中) times, and six auspicious (吉) times. 3-3-6: I call that inflation—auspiciousness inflation.
Things to Avoid
It's a bad day for Opening Irrigation Sluices (開渠) and Mourning Visits (行喪). Think about these.
|[c] Unloading RF|
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the fifteenth (十五) day of the third lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #29: renchen (壬辰). 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 Wood. Today is Water, and tomorrow is Water.
It's a solid day for two things only: Unhitching and Unloading (拆卸) and Sweeping Rooms (掃舎).

Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Generational Destruction (歲破) and Three Mournings (三喪). They're bad.
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens are Bifurcation (丫) and Ghost (鬼). The miscellaneous activities are Granary (倉), Perch (栖), and Storehouse (庫). Nobody knows what they mean.
See You Tomorrow
O.k., cast your net(s) widely and establish stuff. It's a good day to start our thing we call "the week" (which isn't strictly a part of Lunar World). I'll see you back here on Monday night for a preview of Tuesday in Lunar World.
