Moon in Sagittarius
Generosity, openness, optimism and the desire to give advice and share experience are all increased. There is a heightened interest in travel and foreign countries, and any activities and recreations taking place in the open air. You may, however, be over-confident and may not have a good grasp of practicalities. It is a suitable time for large-scale plans but not for any occupations which require attention to detail.
In the body, Saggitarius rules hips and thighs.
The Vedic tradition considers this day to be the best for any the actions intended to bring benefits, and also excellent for beginning any enterprise. The European tradition states the opposite: the day is inauspicious, bringing losses and dangerous illnesses.
The fifth day is unhappy – whatever is lost, is lost forever. A fatal day for criminals: any their action will be discovered and punished. A child born on this day will not live long without an outside help. Illnesses are fatal.
The symbol is Unicorn which means, among other things, truthfulness to one’s principles and duty. In this lunar day that symbolizes the beginning of assimilation and transformation of food, one should pay much attention to the food. Food of animal origin is counter-indicated, it is better to give preference to milk and cheese.
It would be make a trip to somewhere, to gather and dry herbs, to make a tincture, to part with tears with something you don’t need. One should not fuss or fast.
