There’s so much going on today it’s difficult to know where to start. However, as we have been doing this blog for several years now, we traditionally begin with Chinese zodiac signs. Therefore, today is a Fire Horse, such a notable conflagration in Chinese society that historically people try to avoid having children at these times. This is due to the pure intense fire energy of this sign, said to leave a trail of destruction in its wake.
Although that’s not so today as the Fire Horse is welcomed by the monthly Dog sign, which is a member of its own Chinese astrology group and makes it highly auspicious, especially for relationships. This also counteracts the isolation and solitary tendencies of the Ox Boy, appearing as today's Lunar Mansion, who according to legend was separated from his Maiden by the Milky Way. They are said to be reunited once a year only by a heavenly bridge formed by Magpies; aaahh!
Today can be likened to such an event and the Chinese almanac lists marriage, visiting friends and meeting people by taking a courseas suitable activities. The full list includes meditation or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, travelling, getting 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, or setting up a tombstone.
There’s so much that can be said about a Fire Horse, including how you own sign fares under its influence, that you should see our dedicated Fire Horseweb page. We will return next Wednesday and until then, enjoy every moment of NOW.
