Wednesday 16 October 2013 – Mercury
Moon phase – waxing – 97% visible Moon in Pisces
Lunar Day 13
European tradition treats this day as an exclusively negative for all sorts of affairs and especially negative for health. At the same time in Vedic tradition this day is auspicious. It favours important beginnings, improvement of relationships with other people and pleasant ways of spending time.
This day brings bad luck into all endeavours. One should not undertake or start anything! A child born on this day might be able to live to a very old age.
Those who will fall ill on this day and go to the hospital, can remain there for a prolonged period of time. As a rule, almost all the dreams will be fulfilled.
Symbol – a wheel with a clockwise swastika inside. A magical day. A day for work with karma, correction of the past, accumulation of information and contacts. Contacts with the other worlds can happen.
It is good to spin yarn, to make round charms, to bake bread. It is necessary to load the stomach; one can take drugs and carry out cosmetic procedures.
