Is there a better title for this Fire Rooster day in an Earth Rooster month? Actually it may have further significance as it refers to words or actions returning to cause trouble. The Chinese almanac therefore recommends putting your house in order as the main activity today. Attending to burial duties is also regarded as auspicious.
In the Chinese philosophical cycle of nature, where each season consists of 15 days and known as the Twenty Four Solar terms or Seasons, it is the time of the Autumnal Equinox. What is not well known is that each season can be further broken down into five-day periods and today marks the start of the second period called “Water Dries up”. This is where the final recommendation of felling trees is derived and I guess that can be interpreted as general gardening including pruning and mowing the lawn.
Fire Rooster days are generally good for Monkey, Snake and Ox signs and not so good for Rabbit, Pig or Sheep. See our dedicated Fire Rooster web page for your own personal signs tendencies. We will return tomorrow with an Earth Dog. Until then enjoy every moment of NOW.
