Monkey on your back….time to give up?

Today's title refers to that infamous saying that suggests you will be burdened in some way. It is perfectly appropriate as this Metal Monkey day clashes with the month sign of Tiger suggesting struggles ahead. Consequently, any short term decisions should be made tomorrow. Although the book of nature suggests that anything involving taking things apart, such as decorating or refurbishing is well favoured.

So, with today's advice in mind, if you were looking for an excuse to take it easy on “leap year’s day”, you could say it’s a “fate thing!”

Seriously though, today's Metal Monkey is synonymous with reform, so the time is perfect for giving up bad habits, or changing your lifestyle is some way.

We will return on Friday as tomorrow is a very busy day. We don’t need Chinese astrology to tell us that, although it does suggest success!

Until then, enjoy NOW

Big cheese or Greater Feta?

Today's Earth Goat when found in the day pillar is the strongest, healthiest and most charismatic of the five different types of goat or sheep in Chinese astrology. I have referred to someone with that stature as the “big cheese” but greater feta sounds much more endearing. The original meaning of big cheese meant most important person and later came to mean wealth and fame. These terms are also appropriate as the Earth Goat can mean great prosperity and notoriety too. Now you want one in your horoscope, don’t you? Well you can check to see if you already have one from our free Chinese horoscope or just enjoy today's Earth Goat which is there for all.

According to the book of nature or Tong Shu / Chinese almanac, today is great for the following activities: meditation, taking a course, visiting friends, travelling, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, buying or setting direction for your bed, fishing or fixing nets, ceremonial duties or setting up a tombstone.

It’s not so good for buying a boat, setting up a waterway or even an oven. With this latter item in mind, it’s probably tempting fate to grill your feta! On that note, we will return tomorrow on leap years day!

Until then, enjoy NOW

Welcome to World WOOD day

Today's Wood Rabbit forms and alliance with the monthly Tiger and this year’s Dragon sign to make the strongest possible wood element. Wood when in generally short or weak supply can cause anger, but at today's magnitude it should bring the opposite effect of unbridled kindness.

The book of nature is even smiling and most things are favourable including, meditation, taking a course, visiting friends, travelling, getting engaged, getting married, having a haircut, sweeping the house, exchanging gifts, having an astrology reading, seeing a doctor or choosing a treatment, emigrating, opening a business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, buying or setting the direction of your bed or oven and even buying mourning attire.

It advises against drilling a well or pool, or planting seeds. Kindness continues until Tuesday when we will return with our next blog, although Sunday may take a dip.

Until then, enjoy NOW

Confident paper Tiger pays bills

Today's Wood Tiger continues the independent section of the sixty Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch cycle. Paper is associated with trees and has the wood element, so having this same element in both the stem and branch makes this Tiger the most confident of all. Adding this aspect to their vibrant creativity is the key to a Wood Tiger’s success and the root of their possibly considerable prosperity. To see if this is your day pillar, have a free Chinese horoscope on us.

It’s a Tiger day in a Tiger month and although Tigers are mostly solitary creatures, the book of nature recommends seeing friends, along with hunting, buying or making clothes and as the title states, paying bills or settling accounts. So I guess buddy shopping in an army surplus outlet; ticks all boxes.

As we managed to finish a report earlier than we thought, we were able to produces today's blog, even though we said yesterday we would be back tomorrow. I can’t quite make my mind up whether this last sentence is an oxymoron or a possible future title! Rather than tempt fate again, let’s just say we will see you soon.

Until then, enjoy NOW
