Works like a sock on a Rooster – must be time for change!

The title is a universal variation of putting two things together that are not exactly in harmony and that about sums up this Wood Rooster day. As the year and month zodiac animals are Metal Rabbits they completely clash with today’s Wood Rooster and are known as the year and month break. I can’t remember when we last had a year and month clash on the same day; we got near on September 4th 2005, but not quite. Needless to say, it is not a lucky day. The Chinese almanac suggests the only suitable activity today is to take things apart and refurbish or rebuild. This can be extrapolated to changing things that are wrong and need updating or fixing.

If you want things to last and function correctly it is best to make long term decisions tomorrow.

Being near water is the ideal environment as this balances the conflict between metal and wood and can help relieve tension and stress. If you can’t get to water then try spending time with water signs of Rat and Pig, or water stems found in any year ending in 2 or 3.

You actually have 4 opportunities for water stems and 4 zodiac animals in your horoscope, together this creates a system based on almost 13 million different variables, so it is very complex and extremely accurate. You can get a free Chinese horoscope and see what you have. Or have a professional astrology reading to improve your quality of life by supporting your specific energy. Also find out what changes you should make for a smoother life. It is a better day tomorrow.

Until then, - enjoy now.

Monkey trouble - go with the flow?

As you can probably guess today is a Monkey day, but which of the five types of monkey in Chinese astrology has trouble? Answer = Wood Monkey. When found in a day pillar it indicates a qi blockage and normally means they keep their emotion contained, which will cause difficulties in expressing themselves and can lead to health problems.

Expressing themselves, or communicating is the cure to this problem as it represents the water element, much needed to balance. It is said that some people “come alive” or gain presence, and this is certainly true of this type. When their fears are conquered this gives them a powerful, if not intense personality.

Wood Monkey's are usually tall, muscular or curvaceous depending on gender, adventurous and playful. They stand out in a crowd, have natural magnetism and are sometimes irresistible to the opposite sex. If this is you, or you know someone like this; they / you would have been born between August 8th and September 7th in any year ending with 0 or 5. Or those born in 1944 or 2004, like Antonio Banderas, Roger Daltrey, Michael Douglas, David Duchovny, J Boog, Dana Hamm, Rutger Hauer, Sean Penn, Chris Pine, Claudia Schiffer, Charlize Theron, and Shania Twain.

Wood monkeys can also be found in your day and hour of birth and you can get a free Chinese horoscope to see either if you have one, or what you have. Or to improve your quality of life by understating and supporting your specific energy have a professional astrology reading

Weather wise Wood Monkey days indicates being cool and windy depending on natural climate conditions, wrap up warm and eat well. Here are some ideas for foods? Today’s energy favours sour and bitter tastes also astringent vegetables, such as Celery. However, salty tastes would be preferable, as this balances the clash between wood and metal (Monkey).

Monkey madness rules today and you will find that your normal playful sense of humour gains recognition. It has been a difficult time for simians over the past 13 months and they can do with the extra attention and support. Their elemental pal the Rooster who is clashed all year, may suffer even more setbacks today and should plan ahead and pay attention to details. Tigers should also follow this advice as they are likewise clashed for today only Monkey mates of Rat and Dragon gain support and extra creativity respectively.

Moneywise Snake and Horse signs fare best, their males are lucky in love too. Whilst, female wood signs of Rabbit find love. Dog, Goat, Ox find relaxation as the Pig is pumped and raring to go!

Going with the flow
According to the natural flown of nature as depicted in the Chinese almanac suitable activities for today include, meditation, taking a course, travelling, getting married, having a haircut, sweeping house, pampering and indulgence, move or build a new home, or refurbish, buy or make clothes, cook, set up a tombstone emigrate. Trouble comes from opening a warehouse or new business or collecting debts.

Until tomorrow - enjoy today!

Underwater goats with snorkels and flippers seeks like minds

Today’s title pays homage to Monty Python and by linking h20 in any form with a caprine we provide an alternative heading to Water Goat day. Like minds refers to friends, which is the theme of today as the Goat is teammate to this month’s sign of Rabbit. The final member of this astrological group is the Pig and if you have one of these in your chart, it will be as if you had all three signs and you will have a remarkable day. This can range from being totally drained, to fully inspired, or be lucky with wealth, romance, recognition, support and feeling vibrant, depending on your horoscope. Have a free Chinese horoscope and see, or have a professional astrology reading and also discover how to improve your quality of life.

On the subject of friends, who wouldn’t want to be pals with a Water Goat? Of all the 5 different types of astrological Goats, they can be the most powerful. They are also honourable, expressive, creative, devoted to others and can be very lucky with investments or ways of making money. Generally attractive to the opposite gender, they use their money to improve quality of life. If ever they find themselves under pressure, wearing white or grey colours will balance their energy. Famous Water Goats include Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, Jim Morrison, Robert De Niro, J.K. Rowling and Lech Walesa.

Naturally Goat or Sheep will be at the centre of attention today and everything will move towards them, so it’s probably a good idea for them not to change their habits too much. Their friends of Rabbit and their pal of Tiger can find wealth and males can be lucky in love. Buddy Pig has power, creativity and inspiration and females along with Rat signs feel romantic and can find love. Companion signs of Horse along with Snakes signs can relax, or finally tackle that project that they have been putting off for some time. Conversely, the Ox is clashed today and are probably under pressure. The fire element can help them and this can be by colour, warmth or to stop procrastinating and take action. Dog signs need to be aware that their plans may go astray, but Dragons can see their projects develop. Whilst monkey and Rooster signs are in a good position to get help and support, they also may be full of energy.

The friend theme continues with the Chinese almanac suggesting mostly anything you can do with others as being favourable. This includes, meditation, asking for blessings, visiting friends, travelling, getting engaged, exchanging gifts, having an astrology reading, buy or make clothes, emigrate, open a business and trade, refurbish home or office, move earth, fix a roof, go hunting, or set up a tombstone.

Until tomorrow enjoy today!

Kelpie day - travellers beware

The kelpie is a mystical Water Horse from Celtic legend, said to haunt the rivers and lochs of Scotland and Ireland. The horse's appearance is strong, powerful and breath-taking and was rumoured to lure visitors to their doom. This way of opening today’s blog is a bit dramatic I know, but it does draw attention to this Water Horse day. Perhaps more importantly, the Chinese almanac suggests keeping an open mind and fixing paths and walls to avoid accidents.

If Water Horse is a day pillar in your horoscope see your Four Pillars of Destiny. You could have lots of wealth opportunities which eventually lead to power. As your mind controls your body, you will have a punishing schedule and probably a dietary or stomach problem, caused by eating the wrong foods. The earth and metal elements are needed to balance your energy and you should cut back on sweeties and eat more pungent tastes or tubers. This combination makes for good communication and action related professions and famous Ness’s include Muhammad Ali, Chris O'Donnell, Harrison Ford, Elizabeth Hurley, Tobey Maguire, Paul McCartney, Michael Nesmith, Michael Phelps, Lou Reed, Martin Scorsese, Barbra Streisand and Venus Williams.

As you would expect, Horse signs are prominent and vibrant and females will find that their relationship occupies their mind today. This is also true with Snake, Monkey and Rooster signs. You would need to be a male with Dragon, Sheep, Dog and Ox signs to be lucky in love, although you are blessed with prosperity today, as are Pig and Rat signs and it is also a good day to take charge of your life and make relevant decisions. Although, Rat signs could struggle with this as they are normally clashed on Horse days, but in spring this is less so.

Tiger and Rabbit signs are positively inspired and it is a good day for them to try new things and put their ideas into action. They may also find that people take their advice more readily today.

Until tomorrow – enjoy today!

Chocolate Bunny has sweet tooth?

Chocolate as a sweet taste can refer to the earth element and bunny as you know, is another name for Rabbit, hence our title above, on this Earth Rabbit day. If you have this arrangement as your day pillar, in your Four Pillars of Destiny then you will probably have a “sweet tooth”, especially if you have further earth element in your horoscope.

This Earth Rabbit although denoting power also creates pressure and the fire element is needed to balance, otherwise your body rules your mind and that can get you into trouble. The best fire can be accessed by taking action, especially by putting your thoughts and ideas into action. Consequently, It is a good sign for actors, musicians and sports people and some examples include Mariah Carey, Adam Clayton, Keira Knightley, Queen Latifah, Piers Morgan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ronaldinho, Vince Vaughn, Rachel Weisz and + Fergie.

Astrologically, today is good for Pig who along with Rat signs are both expressive and creative, they may also receive opportunities to travel.

As you may expect Rabbits are at the centre of attention and may be nervous as a result. Whilst Tiger signs can see their plans develop.

Our Earth signs of Dragon, Goat, Dog and Ox should feel powerful, and if pressurised should wear fire colours. Females of these signs can be lucky in love. Males would have to have the metal element of Monkey or Rooster to have similar luck. Although the latter is clashed and may suffer confusion or conflict, they also need to be careful of damaging extremities such as fingers, toes and even hips. They can benefit by fire and earth elements.

Fire and Horse signs may feel energetic and they are in a good position to receive helpful advice. Not sure which sign you are? Have a free Chinese astrology horoscope here.

The Chinese almanac states to only travel and visit friends as suitable activities today. Unsuitable actions are anything to do with opening a water source tomorrow is only good for cleaning up, but Sunday is good for seeking life direction by making personal decisions. We will be back on an even keel on Monday, until then - enjoy now!
