(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is black-ink Danger (危). Calendrical interpretations stress that it presages dangers on journeys, shipwreck, and falling off of building projects. It is bad...squared.
|[b] Heavenly Physician RF|
The jianchu "personality" is Completion (成), and it is excellent from start-to-finish. It is a fortunate day for all sorts of activities, so bring those projects to completion, people. It's all good (except for that "Danger" stuff, above).
There are four beneficent asterisms today: Generational Virtue (歲德), Linked Days (合日), Heavenly Happiness (天喜), and Heavenly Physician (天醫).
|[c] New Boats RF|
Things to Avoid
It's a bad day for Litigation (詞訟), Moving Residences (移徙), New Boats (新船), and Entering Water (進水). Think about these (and don't go near the water).

(Section Four—Characters 1-4)

(Section Five—Character 5)
Today's slice of the "Five Phases" (sometimes called the "Five Elements") is Wood (木). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Wood. Today is Wood, and tomorrow is Water.
|[d] Poplar Taboo RF|
Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Poplar Taboo (楊忌), Water Scar (水痕), Upper Amputee (上兀), and Return Taboo (歸忌). They're bad (and not at all
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens are White (白) and Mountain (山). The miscellaneous activities are Toilet (厠), Bed (牀), and Edifice (房). Nobody knows what they mean, but I am a little troubled by "toilet" and "bed" being juxtaposed here.

See You Tomorrow
O.k., do your best with the roller coaster day, people, and bring things to Completion (even amidst the Danger). I'll see you back here Monday night for a preview of Tuesday in Lunar World.
