Constellation Personality (Section Five—Character Six)
Today's "constellation personality" is Pyre (室). It is the thirteenth of twenty-eight "lunar mansions" (宿) or "constellations." Traditional calendars state that it resembled a ceremonial pyre used for sacrificial purposes. Today's portents are positive for construction, and new projects will be fortunate (in Lunar World).

Things to Avoid
It's a bad day for Opening Irrigation Sluices (開渠) and Litigation (詞訟). It's always a bad day for litigation.
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the sixth (初六) day of the fourth lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #19: renwu (壬午). 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 Wood (木). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Metal. Today is Wood, and tomorrow is Wood.
It's a solid day for four things today: Venerating Ancestors (祭祀), Making Appointments (立約), Trade and Commerce (交易), and Capital Payments (納財).
