Today’s Water Horse fuses the elements of fire and water together; the symbol of alchemy, a mythical process of turning lead into gold. In actuality this was an allegory, as it referred to the refinement of oneself through knowledge and spiritual practice leading to prolonged life without disease or stress. This advanced philosophy was outlawed by the church, so like-minded proponents met in each other’s homes as friends to avoid persecution. What of sea? That’s just an eccentric way of saying Water Horse!
On a lighter note, today is another excellent day and probably the most auspicious of the week. The Chinese almanac recommends meditating, asking for blessings, visiting friends, having a haircut, travelling, sweeping the house, visiting a doctor, signing contracts, opening a business and trading, refurbishing your home or office, moving earth, fixing a roof and setting up a bed or tombstone.
If you have a Water Horse in your horoscope or you would like to find out how your Chinese animal fares today, please see our Water Horse web page. We will return on Tuesday as we have another UK bank holiday weekend. Until then have a great weekend enjoying every minute.
