This is only a general perspective guide for the twelve earthly branches of the Chinese almanac for September 2006. 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 Rooster and you read below that September 2006 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 monthly flying star advice, you will avoid bad luck even more because negative Flying Star avoidance alters your destiny in a positive way.
