Almanac For Monday 9 December 2013 (Moon)

Monday 9 December 2013 (Moon)

Moon Phase – First Quarter at 15:11 GMT. Moon is in Pisces

First Quarter of the Moon

A stressful period of time when there is a strong desire to accomplish something, to change, and to show oneself. However, before undertaking anything, first stop and think: is it really needed? Obstacles multiply at this time and contradictions sharpen. Plans developed under this influence often turn out to be unrealistic because people tend to overvalue their abilities.

Lunar Day 8

An auspicious day for trips, especially a business trip or long journey. The Vedic tradition recommends this day for many different things, including art, physical activities, and any business related to property. This is also thought to be one of the best days for any kind of beginning. However, this could be a critical day for those who are ill..

Vronsky:

The eighth day will be successful for trips and travels, for business voyages and moving house. The child born on this day will not be destined to have external beauty, so only through his intellect and knowledge, through good will and diligent work will he attract an attention to himself. For people who fell ill on this day, the illness may prove to be quite dangerous. Dreams can be trusted, in most cases.
Globa:

Symbol – phoenix. The day of penance, absolution, purification by fire, alchemy. One can fast, purge one’s stomach and intestine. It is good to prepare remedies for all illnesses. One should not be dissolute or egoistic..

This brings an increase of emotions and a receptivity to other peoples’ feelings. You will have a desire to be of help, and you may be willing to sacrifice something for the sake of others.
