Lunar Day 10

This is an exceptionally auspicious day in all traditions. It is especially good for beginning important business or acquiring a large-scale acquisition.

The tenth day is very good and successful for any beginning, both important and insignificant. Grief or sorrow will prove to be transitory. The child born on this day will enjoy travels, trips, hiking and business voyages. The one who will fall ill on this day can die without an immediate help. Dreams are mostly invalid.


Symbol – a fountain. The day for rest, for finding new sources of energy, for exploring the depths of your own nature, activating the carmic memory. Recommended are reflections on one’s family tree, meditation on one’s own karma in order to clarify the line of life, to strengthen one’s home and family.

It would be good to start building something, to have a steam bath. One should not be selfish and superficial.
