Today's title sure needs some explaining but as it’s a good day for learning, “saddle up” and let’s go for a ride. That’s a useful term to begin with as it is actually an Earth Horse day in Chinese astrology and sweetness is the taste associated with th earth element. Ask any Earth Horse person and they’ll probably tell you they’re on first name terms with their dentist due to a sweet tooth.
In the 28 Lunar Mansions system, the moon appears in the constellation of “Orion”, named after a hunter in Greek mythology. As one of the most prominent constellations in the night sky, the Pyramids of Giza are said to be aligned with his belt. If success is what you seek, this influence is said to be good for building or starting new projects, and any work done today whether already underway or just started will be well rewarded.
The Chinese almanac or Tong Shu has an auspicious horseshoe symbol surrounding today's recommendations; not just because it’s a horse day but due to “Success” appearing in another influential system called the 12 palaces or Jian Chu. This enhances most activities, especially taking a course visiting friends, travelling, getting engaged or married, 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, fixing a roof, buying or setting direction for your bed and hunting.
Success and compatibility also comes today by an alignment with today’s Earth Horse Chinese zodiac sign and the monthly Dog sign. This is in itself auspicious, but further enhanced if you have a Tiger in your Chinese astrology chart as the Tiger completes an extremely prominent fire influence.
