(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is Pleiades (昂). Calendrical interpretations stress that its negative qualities. The constellation has an aura of family discord, and building projects result in shortened life for young and old. Scary stuff (so put down that hammer, bucko).
|[b] Fullness RF|
The jianchu "personality" is Fullness (滿). Although it is printed in black ink, it's pretty darned good in terms of outlook. Although it is not a good day for menial tasks, it is a splendid one for big events. Book that venue, people (and don't forget the DJ). It's time to party.
There are two beneficent asterisms today: Phoenix (鳳凰) and Lunar Kindness (月恩). Today's beneficent kindness will rise up, like a mythical bird, or something.
There are three inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, three in-between (中) times, and fully six auspicious (吉) times. I am not going to say it, but you know what I am thinking if you're a regular reader. If you're new, just do the percentages.
Things to Avoid
|[c] Livestock RF|
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the thirteenth (十三) day of the fourth lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #56: jiwei (己未). The days cycle—1, 2, 3, 58, 59, 60, 1, 2, 3...—in perpetuity.
(Section Five—Character 5)
Today's slice of the "Five Phases" (sometimes called the "Five Elements") is Fire (火). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Fire. Today is Fire, and tomorrow is Wood.

Fear Your Unlucky Stars
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Upper Amputee (上兀), Fire Star (火星), Lunar Repression (月厭), and Three Mournings (三喪). In Lunar World parlance, they're all bad...but Lunar Repression is especially bad.
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens is White (白). Yup, for the second straight day, it's just that. The miscellaneous activities are Divination (占), Toilet (厠), and Gate (門). Nobody knows what they mean, but I'm pretty sure that you shouldn't be doing divination near the toilet. Get closer to the gate, and you'll probably be o.k.
|[e] Toilet RF|
Well, Sunday looks worse than it is when it all plays out in Lunar World. Be Full, but not to the point of indigestion. Satiety, not over-indulgence, is the goal. I'll see you back here on Sunday night for a preview of Monday in Lunar World.
