Of Horse, Hounds and Horn?

Wood Rabbit symbol

Today's title isn’t a tribute to hunting, far from it; it’s actually a Metal Dog day which falls in a Horse month. That’s two parts of the same zodiac group and you only need a Tiger for a complete set. So those born between 3 – 5am or from February 4th – March 5th or on a Tiger day or year (see free Chinese horoscope) will gain a huge fire influence and be galvanised into action.

Horn refers to a Chinese constellation in which the Moon is said to rise today. Being the tip of the Dragon, it heralds fortune to come and makes it an excellent time to start new ventures.

The Chinese almanac acknowledges these trends and recommends the following activities; taking a course, travelling, getting married, emigrating, opening a business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof or setting up a tombstone.

If Metal Dog is in your Chinese horoscope you have in-built power, drive and great determination. In common with all dogs, you enjoy friendship and thrive in competitive situations. You also have an empathy with the opposite sex. Blessed with great support and a constant beneficiary of mostly good advice, you should enjoy a gracious and beneficial quality of life. Excitement can often be found by trying new things and you seem to get a buzz from taking risks.

Metal Dog influences can be found in the following celebrities; Mariah Carey, Vince Vaughn, Andre Agassi, Uma Thurman , Tina Fey, Naomi Campbell, Joseph Fiennes, Jennifer López, M. Night Shyamalan, Claudia Schiffer, Macy Gray, Matt Damon and Jay-Z.

For want of a horse?

Huge Rabbit

According to the Chinese almanac today is a good day to start learning and our title is an excerpt from a 14th century proverb which may refer to the death of Richard III of England. It’s supposed to be one of the earliest examples of “chaos theory” and it therefore may not come as a surprise that King Richard’s remains were just found buried under a car park in Leicester UK.

However, as we deal with order, not chaos, our “want of a horse” refers to something else. To understand exactly, you will need to know that there are twelve animal signs in the Chinese zodiac and each can be formed into a group of three. These groups actually represent the rise and fall of each of the five elements throughout the year in great order and logic. 

With that in mind and as an example, today is a Metal Dog day in a Wood Tiger month, this is the beginning and end of the fire element group, but the central part of Horse is missing; hence chaos.  Interestingly, fire signifies illumination and having explained or imparted knowledge, our title should now make full sense.

This means that if you have a Horse in your horoscope and you can discover here with our free Chinese horoscope  you will have a memorable day ahead. However, with nearly thirteen million different types of chart in Chinese astrology, we cannot say whether that will be really good or really bad, but you can find out by following the instructions in our also free attribute cycle. Remember, “forewarned is forearmed”, oh wait, that’s another medieval proverb isn’t it? Well as the Chinese almanac also suggests quiet reflection as a suitable activity this is something you could ponder.

Other suitable activities include taking a course and sweeping house or tidying up. Those “horseless” can see our dedicated Metal Dog page below to see their own sign will fare today. We will be back tomorrow with the personal emblem pictured above of the English King Richard III of England, namely the White Boar .  Until then, enjoy every moment of NOW!

Dog and pony show – great day ahead!

A Metal Dog day falling in a Wood Horse month couldn’t have a more appropriate title than this. As the Dog and Horse is part of the same group as the Tiger, we have a great day ahead of us.

As you would expect the Chinese almanac favours partnerships and group activities as suitable pursuits for today. These include visiting friends, getting engaged or married, exchanging gifts, travelling or emigrating,  taking a course, having a professional astrology reading, opening a  business and trading, refurbishing your home or office, moving earth, putting a new roof on a home, meditating, asking for blessings or setting up a funeral pyre or tombstone.Tomorrow is also good and it may be best to make Sunday a day of rest.
Until Monday - enjoy now

Cool Metal Dog but no oomph!

Black beauty day?

Dog is part of the same group as this month’s Tiger sign, specifically they are the beginning and end of the fire group that represents action, but as the Horse is missing there is no connection between the two. This can be expressed as no spark or oomph! Consequently, the Chinese almanac suggests that the only suitable activities today are meditation or quiet reflection, which can be a good way to start learning by taking a course. It is not a good day to buy clothes or mend nets. So, 86 the curtains and fishing kit, just for today!

Dragons clash with Dog and this may result in shoulder or chest problems, although owing to a combination between the monthly and annual signs of Tiger and Rabbit at the time of writing respectively, this is not only unlikely but can be migratory and Dog may suffer instead. It should be a quiet and relaxing day for Sheep and Ox signs though.

Metal Dog influences can be found in the following celebrities; Mariah Carey Vince Vaughn, Andre Agassi, Uma Thurman , Tina Fey, Naomi Campbell, Joseph Fiennes, Jennifer López, M. Night Shyamalan, Claudia Schiffer, Macy Gray, Matt Damon and Jay-Z.

Metal signs of Monkey and Rooster should feel vibrant being full of energy and can receive some good advice, whilst Pig and Rat signs can feel powerful and ambitious, their women are also lucky in love. Whilst male Tiger and Rabbit signs can similarlyenjoy romance and they all are lucky with money. Snake and Horse signs can be qite creative or expressive or enjoy travel or creativity. - Metal Dog daily Chinese horoscope - posted 24th June 2011
