The Twelve Earthly Branches in the month Ren Shen 7th Lunar Month August 7thth to September 6th 2004

Written by Sallie Tsui Sien

This is only a general perspective guide for the twelve earthly branches of the Chinese almanac for August 2004 (Yang Water Monkey 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 August 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.

22 Jan 2004-08 Feb 2005

You may find that this is a month where the true value of your energy is not well employed and there is a sense of dissatisfaction. With a low work load and time on your hands, you may be drawn to making small comments without much thought and before you know it, you are the subject of gossip and jealousy. Don’t let this happen. Keep a low profile and stay humble which will avert any form of bad feelings.

With a not too active month at hand, spend the time wisely and do the things that are beneficial to you. When approached with investment opportunities, use your own judgment and do not be led by other’s influences.

Suitable colours for the month are lake blue and light grey.

For protection you should have a key chain pendant of a Snake with you at all times.

Your lucky sector is the West-Southwest (232.5º – 247.5º) of the home provided it does not house unfavourable time energies.

dogNothing much will be achieved this month. You may find that plans and goals may not develop as planned or plans get changed suddenly without prior notice or indication which may get very annoying. Don’t get yourself too upset if the changes are only a matter of schedules. Just remember to stay focussed and flexible at the same time. Be sensitive with friends and family and do not turn your frustrations into problems with harsh words which will certainly bring regrets.

Ideal colours for the month are sky blue and beige.

boar/pig Obstacles and intermittent problems are indicated on the work front. If you can handle any difficulties with a calm and collected manner, things may not be as bad as they seem. Avoid getting into any disagreements with family or colleagues at work. You must also beware of swindlers and ill fated investment schemes. It is a time to guard your money carefully.

Ideal colours for the month are dark green and beige.

The location of south-southeast (142.5º – 157.5º) is in conflict with your earthly branch and therefore if there is a choice, avoid using this sector as your important room, e.g. bedroom or study/home office. If you have to use this room, place metallic bells in the north-northwest corner (322.5º – 337.5º) of your office or study to attract good fortune. You can also wear a hematite power beads bracelet to help you increase resistance to stress.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this information. As I said at the beginning, if the prediction for your earthly branch is not so good, you can avoid any potential problems by following our advice above and also by being aware of the monthly flying stars. Good luck and have a wonderful August.
