The Twelve Earthly Branches in the month Xin Wei 6th Lunar Month July 7thth to August 6th 2004

Written by Sallie Tsui Sien

This is only a general perspective guide for the twelve earthly branches of the Chinese almanac for July 2004 (Yin Metal Sheep month). In this, I have attempted to point out the factors that may affect you beneficially this month and also those of which you should beware according to your animal sign. The effect on individuals should be considered within the context of the monthly Flying Stars which you can find by clicking this link.

Please do not think that because, for example, you are a Tiger and you read below that July 2004 will not be good you will therefore have a bad month. No. A positive attitude and hard work combined with knowledge of what the month ahead has in store for you will enable you to avoid many problems and disappointments. If you follow our annual 2004 Flying Star (Xuan Kong) recommendations you will avoid bad luck even more because negative Flying Star avoidance alters your destiny in a positive way.

This is not exactly a splendid month for the Rat in terms of their relationships with others. The prospects in wealth and career terms are good but the Rat may experience hiccups in relationships with peers and subordinates alike, causing unnecessary bad feelings and stress. Rat needs to harness patience and exercise their natural instinct and cleverness to overcome the month’s black cloud.

Ideal colours for the month are black and pink.
