Wow, it’s been such a while since we last wrote a blog, that I am desperately trying to remember how we write these things. Let me see, oh yeah, we look at all of the different feng shui and Chinese astrology influences occurring today and then think of the most quirky and informative title to sum them up. I wonder what happened today then?
Due to some very large international projects and extremely tight deadlines taking up all our time, I think it’s now getting on for a couple of months since we last wrote a blog! You may know exactly how long it’s been if you have missed our translations of daily advice from the Chinese book of nature. As you know, they help you decide on the best activities for the day ahead and vary from meditation and shopping, to beauty, health and business dealings.
Here are today's recommendations and they consist of meditation or honouring ancestors, funeral duties, having a haircut, sweeping the house, buying or making clothes, filling cracks in walls or refurbishing a kitchen, laying foundations and opening a watercourse (modern equivalent of installing a water feature). It advises against buying a wedding dress or planting seeds. Tomorrow is a much more interesting day and we will give you the full spectrum of dos and don’ts to help you be in the right place at the right time. Now back to today!
It is a Wood Ox day with a full moon tonight and, as ox is another name for cow, you can see how we derived today's title. However, the most significant happening recently was that yesterday was the start of the first sexagesimal cycle since the summer solstice. Although a controversial point amongst Chinese astrologers and feng shui master consultants, all can now agree that the Yin half of the year is truly underway. As Yin refers to downward energy, you can see the final part of our title at work.
To see how your personal astrology will fare under these influences, please see our dedicated Wood Ox web page. We will return tomorrow and until then enjoy every moment of NOW!
