The Twelve Earthly Branches in the month Jia Xu 9th Lunar Month. October 8th to November 6th 2004

Sallie Tsui Sien

This is only a general perspective guide for the twelve earthly branches of the Chinese almanac for October 2004 (Yang Wood Dog month). In this, I have attempted to point out the factors that may affect you beneficially this month and also those of which you should beware according to your animal sign. The effect on individuals should be considered within the context of the monthly Flying Stars which you can find by clicking this link

Please do not think that because, for example, you are a Tiger and you read below that October 2004 will not be good you will therefore have a bad month. No. A positive attitude and hard work combined with knowledge of what the month ahead has in store for you will enable you to avoid many problems and disappointments. If you follow our monthly 2004 Flying Star (Xuan Kong) recommendations you will avoid bad luck even more because negative Flying Star avoidance alters your destiny in a positive way.

a danger foreseen is a danger that can be avoided

ratAn average month ahead. The absence of certain elements in your life palace indicates potential minor incidents. To avoid difficult moments, you have to keep a calm, focussed and honest attitude and not strive for things out of the ordinary. Tranquillity is your goal for the month.

Ideal colours for the month are lake blue and gold.

For your protection, you should have a key chain pendant of an Ox with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the North (352.5 - 7.5) of the home. The location of the south is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office.

oxFor Oxen, the month may seem that as soon as one issue is resolved, another problem appears. However, no problem is so overwhelming that it cannot be handled through honest communication and attention to duty. Advice for the month is to try to keep away from office politics and gossip with neighbours.

Ideal colours for the month are silver and lake blue.

For your protection, you should have a key chain pendant of a Rat with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the North-Northeast (22.5 - 37.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. The location of south-southwest is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If this is your working area and you cannot avoid it, place ceramic urns in the north-northeast corner of the room.

 

Tiger

TIGER Work is successful with good investments and success in your enterprises. If possible, be generous and charitable. Whether it is at work or at home, your advice for the month is safety first.

Ideal colours for the month are rose red and light grey.

For your protection, you should have a key chain pendant of a Pig with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the East-Northeast (52.5 - 67.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. Enhance this zone with a Jade Crystal Tree (which is an all round powerful cure) to maintain wealth and prosperity especially if your office is at home. The location of west-southwest (232.5 - 247.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If you cannot avoid this area, you can place a horse figurine on the left (for male) and right (for female) hand side of your desk in your office to ensure a calm year. Place a Wu-Lou by your bedside this year especially if your bedroom is in the southwest.

 

Hare/Rabbit

16 Feb 1999-04 Feb 2000

 

hare / rabbitRabbits will benefit greatly from what may seem a difficult month by being diplomatic. Being hard headed will not take you very far and do not let pride gets in your way. The important thing is not to overstretch yourself turning stress into illness. Take good care of health and this is especially true for those who reside in a southeast or west room this month.

Ideal colours for the month are pink and dark grey.

For protection you should have a key chain pendant of a Dog with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the East (82.5 - 97.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. The location of west (262.5 - 277.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If you cannot avoid this area, place fresh flowers in the east sector of the room and a Wu Lou in the west sector of the room.

05 Feb 2000-23 Jan 2001

 

dragonWith the absence of supporting stars in the Dragons' life palace this month, hard work is in store if success is what you desire. The month's success depends on your own effort. This may sound selfish but you will have to ignore the problems of others and spend more time and care for those at home. Wealth luck is moderate.

 

Ideal colours for the month are dark blue and lemon yellow.

For protection, you should have a key chain pendant of a Rooster with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the East-Southeast (112.5 - 127.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. The location of west-northwest (292.5 - 307.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If you cannot avoid this area, place a red dragon in the east-southeast sector of the room.

 

Snake

snake Opportunities for advancement are in sight but in order for much to be accomplished, Snakes have to keep their opinions and views private as there may be problems concerning values, views and ideologies. Do not force issues for they may bring more problems than success.

Ideal colours for the month are white and pink.

You should keep a symbol of the monkey (or a monkey key ring) with you at all times for protection.

Your lucky sector is the South-Southeast (142.5 - 157.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. The location of north-northwest (322.5 - 337.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If you cannot avoid this area, place a red dragon in the east-southeast sector of the room.

12 Feb 2002-31 Jan 2003

 

horseAlthough Horse should do well in a Dog's month, there is an absence of supporting elements in Horse's life palace this month. This indicates that Horse will have to rely on his/her good sense to pursue and complete the tasks at hand with decisive action and not procrastination if success is to be achieved. Wealth luck this month is not favourable and the advice is to refrain from making new investments.

Stay away from the gambling table. For those in business, take time to go through documents thoroughly including the small print to avoid any legal or financial problems.

Ideal colours for the month are gold and brown.

For protection you should have a key chain pendant of a Goat/Ram/Sheep with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the South (172.5 - 187.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. The location of north (352.5 - 7.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If you cannot avoid this area, place a red lamp in the south sector of the room.

15 Feb 1991-03 Feb 1992

 

01 Feb 2003-21 Jan 2004

 

goat/ram/sheepSheep will do well to stay low this month. Try to remain neutral and avoid getting involved with the problems of others or trouble could result. Centre your focus on the family for here is where the much needed support will come from to see you through this difficult month.

Ideal colours for the month are black and light green.

For protection you should have a key chain pendant of a Horse with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the South-Southwest (202.5 - 217.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. The location of north-northeast (22.5 - 37.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office.

 

Monkey

16 Feb 1980-04 Feb 1981

04 Feb 1992-22 Jan 1993

 

22 Jan 2004-08 Feb 2005

 

Financial difficulties can darken Monkey's usual sunny disposition. You may feel lethargic and experience a sense of diminished energy. Care must be taken with health. This month is not a time for risks or wild Monkey schemes.

Suitable colours for the month are brown and beige.

For protection you should have a key chain pendant of a Snake with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the West-Southwest (232.5 - 247.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. Do not renovate this sector of the home this year in the hope that you will be renewing the energy for the New Year as this is where Tai Sui sits and you would not want to incur his wrath by disturbing his position. The location of east-northeast (52.5 - 67.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore, if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office.

9 Feb 2005-28 Jan 2006

 

rooster Integrity and honesty can circumvent financial difficulties especially for young business Roosters. At home, pay special attention to safety and be extra vigilant with security. Beware of thieves and burglary. Ensure that doors and windows are fastened securely before leaving the house alone. It would be wise to implement additional security measures if not already in place.

Ideal colours for the month are rose red and gold.

Keep a symbol of the dragon (or a dragon key ring) with you at all times to give you support.

Your lucky sector is the West (262.5 - 277.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies.

10 Feb 1994-30 Jan 1995

 

29 Jan 2006-17 Feb 2007

 

dogWith average wealth luck, success is attainable and Dog must feel content with what is achieved. Pursuing success and a heavy work load can cause family life to be neglected resulting in misunderstandings. The cure is TLC (tender loving care). No matter how busy you are, take time off to care for your loved ones and the people who work for you.

Beware of minor accidents and remember; safety always comes first.

Ideal colours for the month are dark green and beige.

For protection you should have a key chain pendant of a Rabbit on you at all times.

13 Feb 1983-01 Feb 1984

31 Jan 1995-18 Feb 1996

 

18 Feb 2007-6 Feb 2008

 

boar/pig This is not a very favourable month for the Boar but moderation can lead to success. Although there is no major advancement, your affairs are in order. Avoid stressing yourself out and keep away from the troubles of others. Your advice for the month is to focus your attention on your loved ones and those close and helpful friends around you.

 

Ideal colours for the month are white and purple pink.

For protection you should have a key chain pendant of a Tiger on you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the North-Northwest (322.5 - 337.5) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies. The location of south-southeast (142.5 - 157.5) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If you have to use this room, place metallic bells in the north-northwest corner (322.5 - 337.5) of your office or study to attract good fortune. You can also wear a hematite power beads bracelet to help you increase resistance to stress.

 

I hope you have enjoyed reading this information. As I said at the beginning, if the prediction for your earthly branch is not so good, you can avoid any potential problems by following our advice above and also by being aware of the monthly flying stars. Good luck and have a wonderful October.
