**Note: There was not to be an Almanac or Crystal of the Day for today as I have been quite ill, however, a follower of my Facebook page requested that I do the almanac for her husband, therefore, here it is. I do not have a crystal of the day for the 25th. Sorry.
Wednesday 25 September 2013 – Mercury
Lunar Day 21
An active and lucky day. Good for making moves, trips and travelling in general. It is also beneficial for friendships, entertainment and holidays. It favours sports, physical exercise and outdoor activities. In addition, it is not a bad day for business undertakings, trade and gambling. Anything lost on this day will soon be found again.
This day is beneficial for any kind of trips and travels, as well as for moving house, but only by land. It is also good for buying and selling, for risky business activities, for trade and for storing supplies of food. This is a day for entertainment in a company with other people.
A child born on this day will be distinguished with industriousness and efficiency, patience and discreetness. A person who fell ill on this day can be in a great danger. For thieves and other criminals this day is unsuccessful and unhappy: they will be soon caught and sentenced. Dreams are usually invalid.
Symbol – the horse. An active, creative day. Bravery, fearlessness, voluntary sacrifice, rejection of possessions. Group endeavours are useful, everything that brings people together, one can give an oath of loyalty. One should be honest and fair. It is good to start a journey, to change job, to take water treatments, to do physical exercises, to be in the open air. One should not blindly rush to a goal.
