Wood Rat

"To Hunt Two Hares."

Today’s Earth Rabbit day clashes in this Rooster month and brings confusion to all, and our title reflects this effect. This well-known proverb is a way of saying that a person is trying to accomplish two tasks at the same time and will not succeed in either.

Although a saving grace is that the second hare, or more specifically the Rabbit, is the zodiac sign for this year, so it shouldn’t be too bad at all, just remember to communicate clearly and all should be well. Recovery is assured from tomorrow anyway, so if you can wait until then before making important decisions you may find greater success.

The Chinese almanac informs us that it is also a broken day, which is only good for taking things apart or minor refurbishment such as fixing cracks in walls. It strongly advises against drilling a well or installing / opening a water feature. It will be slightly better tomorrow - a Metal Dragon day and better still on the equinox on Friday.

Until then enjoy NOW!Originally posted 25th March 2011

Chocolate Bunny with 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 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.

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?

Power Harecut?

You have heard of power dressing, but how about a power haircut? In researching today's title, I was amazed at the amount of websites found under this search term.  I was only looking for a different way of saying it is an Earth Rabbit day, where the elemental relationship represents power and Hare is related to a rabbit, what would you come up with?

Funnily enough, translating today's Chinese almanac or book of nature recommends having a haircut as a most suitable activity. As Rabbit is aligned with the annual Dragon sign, it should be a good day for relationships and visiting friends, travelling, getting engaged or married and trading. For past relationships, it is also good for meditation or honouring ancestors and paying respects in funerary services.

We will return tomorrow with a Golden Dragon and until then, enjoy every moment of NOW.

The March hare

Wood Rat Pillar

The March Hare, a character most famous for appearing in the tea party scene in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, is a fitting title for today on many levels. Firstly in Chinese astrology it’s an Earth Rabbit day, in the Rabbit month of March and of course, the rabbit is synonymous with the hare.

That’s not all though, the Feng Shui almanac recommends travelling as the only suitable activities, perhaps like in an adventure and meeting friends. Tea anyone? It’s marginally better tomorrow as you can have a haircut. Is that a case of hare today and gone tomorrow?

The almanac advises against digging holes or drilling wells but that’s possibly taking Alice’s adventures too far… Actually in the 28 Lunar Mansions, it is a Well day, associated with wisdom and guess what? …Literature!

Back to today's sign. If Earth Rabbit is in your free Chinese horoscope , especially as the day pillar, it denotes power but also creates pressure. The fire element is needed to balance, otherwise your body rules your mind and that can get you into trouble.

The best fire qi can be accessed by taking action, particularly 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, Will.i.am and Fergie.

You can see how your own sign will fare under the Earth Rabbit  influence below and we return tomorrow on a Metal Dragon day. Until then, enjoy every moment of NOW!

Sweet smile and success?

Today’s title is almost identical to that well known phrase, but should actually be taken literally.  Although we normally write our blogs in a subtle and meaningful way, at least I would like to think so, we are keeping it simple as we are coming towards the end of “mercury retrograde”.

This cosmic phenomenon sees Mercury apparently moving backwards. It isn’t actually going the wrong way; it just looks like it is as it rotates on its axis. However, it does create major issues in communications and transport. This influence will last until 20 July, so at least until then, “simple is as simple does”.

  • Firstly, it is an Earth Rabbit day and as sweetness is the flavour associated with the earthy element, sweet things are definitely on the menu today.
  • It is easily the best day of the week and the Feng Shui almanac has that auspicious horseshoe shaped (personally interpreted as a smile) symbol around its information. Subsequently, most activities are favourable including meditating or honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, visiting friends, taking a course, travelling, getting married, exchanging gifts, having an astrology reading, seeing a doctor or choosing a treatment, opening a business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof, buying or setting a direction for your bed, and setting up a tombstone. It advises against drilling a well, opening a watercourse or buying clothing, specifically wedding or funeral attire. 
  • It is a “Success” day in the 12 palace system.
  • See our dedicated Earth Rabbit web page to see how your sign is affected.

I imagine you’re asking what makes it such a good day? Well, today's Rabbit aligns with the monthly Sheep sign, and for those with a Pig in their Chinese horoscope , they will receive a huge wood element influence today.  Actually, we all get to experience this between 9 – 11pm local time and an excess of this element denotes kindness. Now that should make you smile!

We will return next week and until then until then, enjoy every moment of NOW!

Moon the Sun away?

Global Feng Shui Consultations

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!

Blessings from the sweet toothed bunny?

Today's Earth Rabbit forms a combination with the monthly Sheep sign and makes this a very auspicious day. It is completed by the Pig, so if you have this sign in your chart, today can be a very memorable day indeed. You can check that here with our free Chinese horoscope and should you have one, see our attribute cycle for the effects of wood on your chart.

It is such a lucky day that you can seek blessings from the heavens and possibly receive advice or assistance. It is also a good day to take a course and start learning. For example, did you know that most people with an earth element heavenly stem (top line in their day pillar) have a very sweet tooth? You can actually tell their favourite flavours and tastes by analysing the entire pillar.

Today is actually thrice blessed, as the 28 lunar mansions lists it as a Tail of the Dragon day, fortunate for building and finding hidden treasure. Those who marry can have numerous descendants and improved status later in life.

We also have Success from the 12 stations and collectively the Chinese almanac recommends the following activities; 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, making wine or fermenting and hunting. It advises against buying clothes, funeral duties, drilling a well or opening.

We will return tomorrow with a Golden Dragon and until then, enjoy every moment of NOW.
