Saturday 5 October 2013 (Saturn)

Moon Phase – waxing – 2% Visibility – Moon in Virgo

Lunar Day 1 (begins at 01:34 BST, ends at 07:38 BST)

A day for making plans and ‘symbolic beginnings’. Do not push forward too actively in a new direction while the Moon is still invisible in the sky. Instead, try to prioritise the activity which you know will be important for you during the coming month.

Sit down at the table and work out what needs to be done. Draw up a plan and take the very first step forward. There will be other days for everything else.


One should devote the first day to everything that elevates the spirit. This is a day of happiness, it is most favourable for any new beginning. The child born on this day, as a rule, will live to an extreme old age. If someone will fall ill on this day, the illness can become lengthy but he will recover. Dreams are to happiness.


Symbols: the lantern, the lamp, the altar of Hecate, Pallas Athena. This lunar day is unfavourable for group work. It is necessary to return to basics, to remember your childhood, to read a book on the history of your nation, to analyze the past path. The day of creative ideas. It is as if specially designed to work with mental energy, with mental images.

As a rule, one should not start anything on this day, only plan. In the medical respect, the first lunar day is related to the brain and the facial part of the head. One should not over-exert on this day, should not drink alcohol or eat too hot or too spicy food. Physiologically, this is a difficult day, it tightens the internal organs.

Those who were born on this day are always awaiting for something great. They can spend like this the whole of their life and never get their stellar hour. Sometimes it dawns at them and they perform a feat. They must involve themselves into an activity suddenly and brightly.

On this day, one should wear diamonds and rock crystal.

Lunar Day 2 (Begins at 07:38 BST)

A day for laying foundations. Good for beginnings, especially for long term issues such as conceiving a child or laying the first bricks of your future house. It favours moves, trips, long journeys and buying property, but it is a day when financial machinations or theft will bring trouble.


This day is very beneficial for scientific research, reflections and discoveries. It is also good for conceiving children or requesting other kinds of favour from the Providence. The child born on this day will grow safely.

The second day is propitious for all sorts of trips, journeys and travels, both short and far or lengthy. It is good for any movement or rebuild.

If you will happen to fall ill on this day, even if you’ll have to stay in bed, do not worry too much: the illness will be not long and will have no dangerous consequences. Most dreams, however, will be false.

This day is inauspicious for theft.


Symbols: mouth, horn of plenty. Diet makes a wholesome influence. It is good to make a gastric lavage. Anger is absolutely counter-indicated; one should develop generosity in themselves. It is good to start on this lunar day a cycle of physical exercises or a big informational cycle. In the medical aspect, one should turn their attention to the mouth, teeth, the upper part of the palate. Those born on this day tend to take everything into themselves. In undeveloped people, this shows in the form of predatoriness, greediness; they eat everything indiscriminately but never gain weight.The stones of this day – jade, chalcedony, agate.
