Wood Monkey day

Today’s Wood Monkey is the complete opposite of our annual qi, namely Metal Tiger and is truly the year break. Consequently, the Chinese almanac suggests today is only suitable to ask ancestors for guidance and taking things apart, which can be loosely translated as tidying up matters.

Weather wise it indicates being cold and windy, wrap up warm and eat well. Here are some ideas for foods? Today’s energy favours sour and bitter tastes also astringent vegetables, such as Celery. However, salty tastes would be preferable, as this balances the clash between wood and metal (Monkey).

Normally Tigers would clash on a Monkey day but helped by the annual qi it should not be too bad, Monkeys are at the centre of attention and can make new friends, whilst setbacks may await the other metal sign of Rooster. Rat and Pig signs are full of energy and new ideas, Rabbits gain power and recognition. Snake and Horse signs have money luck, and Dragon, Goat, Dog and Ox can be less stressed and may travel.

Famous Monkey signs include Chris Pine, & Jake Gyllenhaal, American actors, Ronaldinho, Brazilian football player and Kylie Minogue to name but a few.
Until tomorrow – enjoy today!

Blue Sheep day?

Today is a Water Sheep day and like yesterdays water element influence it is associated with the colour black and dark blue, hence Blue Sheep. This Yin Water Sheep combination is known as a “pillar” and forms part of a sexagesimal or 60 part cycle. In Chinese astrology it is allocated to years, months, days and hours and this Blue Sheep returns every 5 days (60 hours), 2 months, (60 days) 5 years (60 months) and of course 60 years.

Generally speaking, the Sheep will be at the centre of attention today and together with the other earth signs of Dog, Ox and Dragon can be lucky with money and love. Although the Ox is clashed today and they may have a more stressful time due to unexpected changes. Also Dog signs should double check everything as they may have to rethink current plans.

Pig and Rat are powerful and ambitious and should they become pressurised metal element colours of white and grey will neutralise and empower them. Rabbit and Tiger are well supported and also have wealth opportunities. Snake and Horse signs are more relaxed and can develop their ideas. Whilst Metal signs of Monkey and Rooster will be vibrant and full of energy it is also good time for the Monkey to seek advice.

Today’s Water Sheep favours meditation, asking for blessings, enrolling on a course, visiting friends, getting engaged, exchanging gifts, having an astrology reading, buy or make clothes, open a business and trade, refurbish home or office, move earth, fix a roof, make wine, go hunting, or set up a tombstone.
Until tomorrow – enjoy today!

Metal Dragon day

This Metal Dragon day is seen as the month grave and is good for burial and hunting. Also; having a haircut, visiting friends, perhaps at a wedding, having an astrology reading or emigrating.

It is a naturally good day for Dragon and brings change to Dog signs, although it can be quite creative too, it indicates travel for all of the earth signs including Ox and Sheep.

Monkeys and Roosters get support from friends, whilst Tigers and Rabbits have wealth or romance. Water sign of Pig and Rat have power and recognition, and fire signs of Horse and Snakes could get new ideas and be inspired.

Until Monday – enjoy now!

Earth Rabbit day

As the Rabbit is connected with the current monthly Pig sign this Earth Rabbit day is seen as lucky. The Chinese almanac states that suitable activities today are to ask ancestors for guidance, pray for blessings, take a course, see friends, get married, travel emigrate, refurbish kitchen / warehouse exchange gifts, open a business, burial duties.

Unsuitable pursuits are anything to do with water features or fishing.

Astrologically, today is good for Pig who along with Rat signs are expressive and creative, they may also receive opportunities to travel. Rabbits enjoy friendship and the Tiger although may struggle can see their plans develop. Our Earth signs of Dragon, Goat, Dog and Ox should feel powerful, and if pressurised should wear fire colours. Females of these signs can be lucky in love. Males would have to have the metal element of Monkey or Rooster to have similar luck. Although the Rooster is clashed and may suffer confusion or conflict, they also need to be careful of damaging extremities such as fingers, toes and even hips. They would benefit from fire and earth elements.

Fire and Horse signs may feel energetic and they are in a good position to receive helpful advice.
