(Section Five—Characters Six and Seven)
Today's "constellation personality" is Well (井). Calendrical interpretations stress that it is the widest of all the constellations. It is a good day for some things (taking exams, building, raising silkworms) and not for others (funerals, especially).

The jianchu "personality" is Destroy (破), and it's as bad as it sounds. Even normal conversation turns to quarrels, and even good friends can turn on each other. Conflict is around every corner.
There are two beneficent asterisms today: Generational Virtue (歲德) and Linked Days (合日).
There are four inauspicious (凶) two-hour periods, four in-between (中) times, and four auspicious (吉) times.
