Constellation Personality (Section Five—Character Six)
Today's "constellation personality" is Heart-Mind (心). It is the fifth of twenty-eight "lunar mansions" (宿) or "constellations." Traditional calendars state that, while it is generally unlucky (in Lunar World), the overall positive nature of the character mitigates it somewhat.
Jianchu Personality (Section Five—Character Seven)
|[b] Granary RF|
There are four beneficent asterisms today: Generational Branch (歲支), Three Linkages (三合), Maternal Granary (母倉), and Ten Spirits (十靈). They're all red-ink good, but, really, what could be better than Maternal Granary? It's the mother of all granaries (have some more...take another helping).
|[c] Irrigation RF|
Things to Avoid
It's a bad day for Opening Irrigation Sluices (開渠), Putting-into Water (放水), Venerating Ancestors (祭祀), and Inquiring-into Fortune (祈福).
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
(Section Five—Character 5)
Today's slice of the "Five Phases" (sometimes called the "Five Elements") is Metal (金). Ordinarily, the Five Phases weave their way, two-by-two, through the calendar. Yesterday was Earth. Today is Metal, and tomorrow is Metal.
|[d] Natatorium RF|
(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Water Scar (水痕), Lower Amputee (下兀), Debt Not (債不), Great Loss-Void (大亡空), and my "favorite," Natatorial Calamity (游禍). Just in case you're not up-to-date on Natatoria, a more common translation might be "Swimming Disaster" (watch our for the Water Ghosts (水鬼), people. They're slippery...and dangerous (I hear, in southern China).
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens is Bifurcation (丫), and that's it. The miscellaneous activities are Furnace (爐), Storehouse (庫), and Granary (倉). Nobody knows what they mean, but these at least seem to be somewhat related
See You Tomorrow
So, folks, don't get your highs too high or your lows too low. I'll see you back here on Monday night for a quick preview of Tuesday in Lunar World.
