On August 7, 2009 we will enter the 7th month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. This is the year of the Earth Ox and is considered a well-balanced year. The Chinese believe that it is always better to prevent bad luck from occurring than to try to reverse it ~ so it’s helpful to know what to expect.
This is a better month than July for the Rat. You’ll find that you get along better with people and that you are the life of the party. This is also a better month for love. There are changes at work ~ perhaps a promotion or even a change in career. Display a Rooster in the West of your bedroom to stimulate luck in love.
Illness and poor health lie ahead for the Ox. You will be susceptible to infections so stay away from hospitals and other health settings where you might come in contact with disease. Don’t travel, don’t engage in any sport or activity where you might get hurt as you are not strong this month. Because you aren’t feeling well it will be difficult to know who is really on your side at work ~ keep your own counsel and don’t argue ~ this is a month to give in.
Patience is not the virtue of the Tiger so this will be a very frustrating month.You will find yourself arguing with people but do not lose your temper. Try to stay calm ~ which will be difficult as you will also have some health problems this month. This is not a good month for financial speculation ~ do not invest. There will also be obstacles in love as you will feel detached.
Things get better this month for the Rabbit. Problems seem to disappear and opportunities appear. This is not the time to go your own way but rather to listen to mentors and senior advisers. To enhance wealth luck this month put a beautiful ship near your front door ~ sailing inwards.
Check back for Part II ~
