Moon – waxing – 13% visible. Moon is in Scorpio
Lunar Day 4
This is a contradictory day. In the Vedic and Avesta traditions, it is inauspicious and only good for conflict and getting rid of anything outmoded. Nothing should be started, especially if it is connected to any kind of material gain. In the European tradition this is a good day for beginnings, especially if you are searching for something lost. It is also lucky for any kind of business that deals with water.
Happy day for any new beginning, especially for a search for lost items or people. An auspicious day for dealing with water. A child born on this day will become a big egotist or even a criminal. Its parents will have to apply all their energy and skills in order to direct the child to a decent path.
This day can become unhappy due to one’s own fault, especially if the person will find him or herself under some fatal influence or circumstances, or will take up arms against a fellow creature. Illnesses can be quite dangerous if they are not taken care of from the very beginning. Dreams can come true.
Symbol: the Tree of Knowledge, the choice between the good and the evil. On this day (which would be best of all spent alone) one should think ten times before making a decision. This lunar day is the first between inauspicious ones. It bears in it an ambiguous quality: it is both positive and negative at the same time. One should try not to make hasty decisions. Group work is contra-indicated, one should not pick flowers or cut trees. On this lunar day it is good to spin, to walk in the forest, to undo knitting.
People born on this day are the bearers of some cosmic mystery; it is desirable for each of them to solve this mystery inside themselves on the intuitive level. Sewing or twisted hair in a dream on the eve of this day is a sign that one should reject their plans. Stones: sardonyx, amazon-stone, green nephrite.
