The Earth King arrives to put his House in order?
It’s interesting to note that on the 20th, we started an eighteen day period that celebrates the wonders of nature. In Chinese philosophy, this time is known as the “Earth King arrives” and signifies the strongest period of the earth element. In five element terms, it is the benchmark on which all others elements are measured and in itself, represents stability.
These are heartening attributes as coincidentally, yesterday’s Royal Prince was born on an Earth day. He is actually third in line to the British throne, potentially making him a real Earth King. In analysing his Chinese astrology horoscope, he will have great self-expression, stability and confidence, together with a sense of honour and order that is desperately needed in a leader. His favourable element will be metal and in his position, is best achieved by ruling and management, perhaps taking an active interest in politics.
Today, the Royal Prince should be smiling as it indeed a metal day. To be precise (another metal trait), it is a Metal Tiger day and according to the Feng Shui almanac, an auspicious House day and very lucky. Recommended activities include visiting friends, taking a course, having a haircut, travelling, getting engaged, buying or making clothes, emigrating, opening a business and trading, making wine or fermenting, buying or setting direction for your bed, or setting up a tombstone.
The Metal Tiger is potentially the wealthiest of the five different tigers in Chinese astrology. As well as forming a group with Rabbit and Dragon, it also connects to the Horse and Dog and all of these are well supported today.
The Tiger is the centre of attention, the Horse is likely to feel extremely lively and can be the recipient of good advice, whilst Dogs are recognised for their hard work. Monkey signs will probably be among the most stressed, but the Feng Shui cure of wearing their relaxing colours of black and dark blue, or by being near or in water will help reduce the pressure. As I gaze through my window at the perpetual downpour currently falling over the UK, that doesn’t seem difficult to achieve.

Lucky Tiger birthed by Pig, thats enough to make a cat laugh!
Although sounding ridiculously silly, as you can see in today's picture, sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Take today's title as an example. I know baby Wild Hogs have stripes but they are hardly Tigers. However, when the rise and fall of energy known as five elements is plotted in Chinese astrology, the Tigers element of wood is said to be born in a Pig month.
Such is the case on this Metal Tiger day and anyone born today will be considered timely and may be lucky as a result. They should be healthy and strong, although this would depend on the rest of their horoscope and could be particular blessed with money. Of course you could order a professional astrology reading and cover every eventuality.
As you would probably expect there is a special combination between Tiger and Pig and this makes it a lucky day for all of us. The Chinese almanac recommends travelling, getting married, having an astrology reading, opening a business or trading, moving earth, fixing a roof, or setting up a tombstone.
It is also a notable day for lunar astrology as today is a “Horn” day also good for growth, birth and marriages. It marks the start of a new 28 lunar mansions cycle.
Until then, enjoy NOW !Metal Tiger daily Chinese horoscope posted 1st December 2011
“Ambush” a Tiger team or “streak” back to 2010 to find your future!
What? I know, this title is going to take some explaining but it matches todays remarkability. Today is a Metal Tiger day, which combines with the annual Rabbit sign and the new month sign of Dragon, tripling its potency? It’s almost like having a team of tigers with you, a collection of which is known as an “ambush” or ”streak”. That also fits, as the extremely strong wood element created by this triple combination of Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon can be soft and gentle or enraged and furious. Expect to see these two sides manifest today.
Another interesting aspect is Metal Tiger was the energy of 2010, so if that was a worthy year today should also be good. If it wasn’t great, then either stay in bed, or try not to make the same mistakes again. Following this trend tomorrow is the same energy as the year and that can give you a glimpse of what is ahead. This holds true for Thursday, which has the same qi as 2012, so in a week you can get a feel for your destiny.
If you have a Tiger in you chart then you can expect a remarkable day, either really good or surprisingly bad,! Do not worry as this can be offset by wearing warm colours or acting pre-emptive to any problem. Contrary to popular belief, you actually have four animals in your Chinese horoscope not just one. This is not publicised as it is extremely complex to work out all four animals and when you add the five different types of each you get almost thirteen million different horoscopes types, practically unique.

Yellow being an earth element colour fits nicely for the title on this Earth Tiger day. If you have an Earth Tiger in your horoscope your body controls your mind and your qi may be blocked as a result. The fire element is needed to balance and rid you of all of the confusion from people misunderstanding your interests and intentions. This can be found by taking action in your life and not putting things off, also wearing warm colours, eating spicy food or sleeping with your head in the south. Famous Earth Tiger celebrities include Drew Barrymore, Chelsea Clinton, Dr. Dre, Terence Stamp, Christina Ricci, Diana Rigg, Kenny Rogers, Chris Rock and Jon Voight.

The Horn of Plenty?
Today is a very auspicious day indeed. It’s a Horn day which marks the start of a new cycle in the 28 lunar mansions; one of the oldest methods of Chinese astrology. As such it’s good for growth, creation, birth, starting new projects, building, investing in land or embarking on a long term partnership; marriage or otherwise.
If that wasn’t plenty enough, it’s also a Metal Tiger day, potentially one of the luckiest cats with money. See our dedicated web page for how your own sign will be affected.
Speaking of cats, the Chinese almanac is smiling like the fabled Cheshire type and suggests visiting friends, having a haircut, sweeping house, travelling, 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 attending to funeral duties, including setting up a tombstone. It advises against seeking blessings, meditation, lighting fires or fixing nets.
We will return tomorrow on a Metal Rabbit day. Until then, enjoy every moment of NOW!

Through the rabbit hole?
Today's Metal Tiger is part of the group that includes the annual Dragon sign. However, the Tiger is the beginning phase and without the central part of Rabbit, there’s no correspondence with the Dragon at the end. This void or hole disrupts wood type activities such as networking, strategizing, marketing and charitable affairs, unless of course you have a Rabbit on your team.
Consequently, today could actually be called a “lucky rabbit day” as Rabbits will play a central role in successful ventures. They can enjoy a similar day to the one experienced by Snakes yesterday, as they also completed a group, or Trine as it is known in Chinese astrology. I am spelling this out as according to the Chinese almanac, today is a good learning day.
As luck would have it, we have a Rabbit on our team who is also involved in learning and taking a course. So if you can’t find a Bunny of your own, call ours to discover our wonderful Feng Shui and Chinese astrology courses. Advertising over, the book of nature also recommends visiting friends, having a haircut, getting engaged, laying foundations, fixing a roof or setting up a tombstone as suitable activities. It advises against fishing or honouring ancestors.
We will return tomorrow on a Metal Rabbit day, until then, enjoy every moment of NOW.
