Wednesday 23 October 2013 – Mercury
Moon phase – waning – 74% visible Moon in Gemini
Lunar Day 20
A beneficial day in all traditions, especially for important beginnings. Good for marriage. However, this day may be difficult for those who are ill and children born on this day may have a difficult temper.
This day is good for any beginning, both big, important, and trivial. Everything undertaken will have success. A child born on this day will get an angry and disagreeing personality, his parents will have to struggle with him from the very early age.
An illness that began on this day can prove to be quite lengthy. Dreams, as a rule, will be fulfilled.
Symbol – the eagle. A serious day related to spiritual transformation, cognition of the cosmic law, overcoming the doubts. The best day for spiritual illumination, studying spiritual texts, fasting. It is better to spend it at home, being busy with family and traditional matters. Eagle is a symbol of religious feat. One should overcome pride, haughtiness, snappishness. Do not practise spiritual healing, you can exhaust yourself.
