Success; but can’t see the wool for the trees?

Excuse the pun, but what title would you derive if you had to put Wood and Sheep together? Being also a Success day in the 12 palace system, it’s a really good day. 

The Chinese almanac continue to smile and recommends meditating or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, taking a course, getting engaged, having an astrology reading, buying or making clothes, opening a  business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof, making wine or fermenting, buying or setting direction for your bed, hunting or setting up a tombstone as suitable activities.

Today's title alludes to being too close to something to see clearly. Consequently, if you are a wood person born in the Goat or Sheep month of July, you may not realise that the Goat or Sheep is your source of creativity and prosperity. Wood Sheep individuals make excellent investors and are probably among the most successful people in the banking or financial sectors. Is this you? Try a free Chinese horoscope to find out, then see our dedicated Wood Sheep web page to see how your own sign is affected.

On the subject of success, famous Wood Sheep celebrities include Carl Lewis, Brad Pitt (day), 50 Cent, Rowan Atkinson, Chow Yun-Fat, Kevin Costner, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Laurence Fishburne, Bill Gates, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Woody Harrelson, Lindsay Lohan, Nicolas Sarkozy, Maria Shriver, Jimmy Smits, Eddie Van Halen, Forest Whitaker and Bruce Willis.

Give someone a leg up?

It’s a Wood Horse day and as wood signifies amongst many other things the leg, how could we choose any other title for today's blog? Mind you, the title means to help someone improve in a certain aspect of life and today it seems the universe is helping us all as it’s such an auspicious day. 

Consequently, the Chinese almanac is positively grinning with its auspicious horseshoe symbol (also fitting) encompassing today's recommendations. They are  meditating or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, travelling, getting married, exchanging gifts, having an astrology reading, buying or making clothes, emigrating, opening a  business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof, buying or setting direction for your bed or oven and setting up a tombstone.

Sharper than a serpent's tooth?

Although our title is a line from Shakespeare’s King Lear, it does sum up today's main points perfectly. Namely, it’s a Metal Snake day and although teeth are associated with the metal element, it’s also a “Broken” day in the Jian Chu (12 palace system). It’s not just Broken, its smashed, as this Snake day also clashes with the Pig, our monthly zodiac sign. Is this a case of “two wrongs don't make a right”? Not necessarily, if you have pain similar to that mentioned in our title, it’s a perfect day to find the proper treatment for your ills, not just dentistry. 

Fixing what is broken is most definitely  the order of the day and the Chinese almanac further suggests refurbishment, especially filling cracks and smoothing paths in and around our homes.

If Metal Snake is in the day pillar of your Chinese horoscope, your body can “write cheques that your mind doesn’t want to cash”. Although, this creates confusion, it is easily balanced with the earth element. On the other hand, you tend to thrive under pressure and your emotions spur you onwards. You can also find good support from intimate friends. An analytical mind and an eye for detail help to build your reputation. Famous celebrities include George W. Bush, Angelina Jolie (day), Bono, Mel B, Naomi Campbell, Chow Yun Fat, Steven Gerrard, Enrique Iglesias, Olga Korbut, Bill Paxton, John C Reilly, Gabriela Sabatini, Brooke Shields and Stevie Wonder.

As we have some major projects to finish, as well as teaching some advanced Feng Shui classes, we will return on November 27th - a Water Dragon day.
Until then, enjoy moment of NOW!

Snap! Dragons?

This blog isn’t about flower arranging or affecting any reptiles, it’s simply a Metal Dragon day in a Dragon year and as that’s two of a kind; snap!

According to the Chinese almanac, two seems to be the theme of the day, as it recommends seeing friends or getting married as particularly suitable activities. Preparation also features prominently, either mentally by meditating or physically by having your hair done.  

It’s also a good day for having an astrology reading, emigrating,  buying or setting direction for your oven, or setting up a tombstone. Not so good for moving earth or fishing though.

Our dedicated Metal Dragon web page will tell you the characteristics and compatibility of this Chinese zodiac sign and we will return tomorrow with a Metal Snake.
Until then, enjoy moment of NOW!

Moon the Sun away?

Moon “something” away is a common saying meaning to waste time pining or grieving. This seems most appropriate as today there’s a total solar eclipse and a New Moon.  Although our ancient ancestors used to worry on these days, this double event last occurred May 20 2012 and the Sun has returned every day since.  I am reminded that as “one door closes another opens”.

Speaking of which, the Chinese almanac doesn’t recommend anything on this Earth Rabbit day, not even putting ones affairs in order, further proof that we will be back tomorrow? However, discover how your own sign will fare today with our dedicated Earth Rabbit web page.
Until we return, enjoy moment of NOW!

Every dog has its day

Sadly, it’s not this day, or even this year for that matter. That’s due to a clash with the annual Dragon sign. Mind you today's Wood Dog may fare better than most, as the Yang Wood part is good with the Yang Earth element of the Dog. If you have this type of earth alongside Yang Metal in your chart see free Chinese horoscope, it could be highly auspicious and become your best day yet.

It’s interesting that as it’s a Wood Dog day, the only recommendation the Chinese almanac makes is to fell trees and pick up sticks – fetch boy! All important decisions therefore should be made any time after today.

Our dedicated Wood Dog web page will tell how your own zodiac sign fares today and we will return next Wednesday.  Until then, enjoy moment of NOW!
