Constellation Personality (Section Five—Character Six)
Today's "constellation personality" is Pyre (室), or House. It is the thirteenth of twenty-eight "lunar mansions" (宿) or "constellations." Traditional calendars state print it in red ink, and the "pyre" image is one that is meant as a positive. Even more so is the image of a house (or pyre-pile) of riches. It's a good day for construction work of all kinds.
Jianchu Personality (Section Five—Character Seven)
|[b] Level RF|
There are two beneficent asterisms today: Ten Spirits (十靈) and Heavenly Kindness (天恩). Not many, but they loom large.
There are four inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, five in-between (中) times, and only three auspicious (吉) times. Maybe we're regaining our senses here.
Things to Avoid
It's a bad day for Binding Nets (結網) and Moving Soil (動土). Just Don't Do It.
Just Plain Counting
(Section Four—Characters 1-4)
It is the fifth (初五) day of the sixth lunar month. The cycle of sixty character is #47: gengxu (庚戌). 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 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.
It's a solid day for only two things today: Leveling Roads (平道) and Adorning Embankments (飾垣). Do 'em.

(Bottom of Section Six)
The baleful asterisms (the bottom of section six) are Upper Amputee (上兀) and Soil Charm (土符).
Miscellaneous Omens and Activities
(Sections Seven and Eight)
Today's miscellaneous omens are Bifurcation (丫) and Ghost (鬼). The miscellaneous activities are Pestle (碓), Perch (栖), and Mortar (磨). Nobody knows what they mean, but the first and last should work together (perhaps on a perch?)...
See You Tomorrow
