Heading for new Shores – October 2017

When the metal-dog meets the fire-rooster

After last month’s family reunion we now see the next sign of the zodiac approaching. The next one to show up and to take over his official duties is the metal-dog. That will be on 08 October 2017, 02:21h GMT. This dog will bring autumn to its end and will prepare us for the season of winter.

We know the dog as reserved, persuasive, prudent, faithful, responsible, considerate, straightforward, creative, cynical, and occasionally obstinate. This very interesting mixture of skills gives us an impression of what the month will be like, remembering also that the dog is a pack animal.

Those who know what it is like to live in a close companionship know the ingredience of a peaceful life and what leads to unneccessary friction among the members of that group. In a pack everyone knows his or her place. When time comes for changes he or she will step forward and take action. No substitute will be sent forward, nobody is hiding behind somebody’s back.

Dogs do that naturally, humanoids don’t. During the whole process of change it is absolutely clear what is going on. No scheming, no covering up, no smoke screens, no secret alliances. It looks as if the pack on four paws can handle those situations much better than the herds on two legs. Why not follow that example?!

The metal-dog in particular is bold, confident and straightforward. He settles all his affairs in a strong-willed manner and acts resolutely. He has faith in himself and his abilities and never hesitates to speak his mind or to devote himself to some just cause. What he really does not like is when things do not run according to plan. That irritates him and he can become quite narrow-minded in these situations. His family and friends do mean much to him which makes him very loyal and faithful.

How can we all gain from this month’s energy? Well . . . it will certainly help us all if we could broaden our outlooks on things we have to deal with and become more involved in group activities. Let’s take care of those who mean much to us, their support in return will be very rewarding. By adding to our skills and knowledge in our work as well as in our personal interests we will be boost our future chances.

Time now to look at the signs of the zodiac to see what they can expect:

Dog(*) (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006):
Only good deeds will pay off. Keep that in mind and live up to it and you will have a rewarding month. Do not claim what is not rightfully yours.

Pig(*) (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007):
Plan mindfully. Take your time and do what is necessary to make your endeavours a success. Be careful when travelling. Better safe than sorry.

Rat(*) (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008):
Avoid experiments. Beware of the intricacies of life. Stick to what you know best and do not try to extend your boundaries. Other times are better suited for that. Only hard work will lead to success.

Ox(*) (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009):
Cobbler, stick to your trade. You are much better off when you mind your own business. Wrong moves will lead you astray and it will take a lot of time and effort to deal with the consequences. Use your logic and common sense.

Tiger(*) (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010):
How relaxing it can be to meet an ally. Things run smoother than in the previous months. Business and career go well, promotions are to be expected. Be mindful what you spend your money on or who you support.

Rabbit(*) (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011):
It’s not enough to know what you do not want. Make sure you know what you really want and go for it. Be patient and think twice before you make any investments. Do not mix money with friendship.

Dragon(*) (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012):
Plan ahead but share your ideas only with those you can trust. Identify your friends, identify your enemies. Lie low, keep a low profile. That is the best you can do in times when you are the official opponent of the ruler of the month.

Snake(*) (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013):
There is always somebody who can lend you a helping hand. You do not always have to remove all obstacles by yourself. Stay clear of legal matters, they might cost you more than you can gain from them.

Horse(*) (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014):
Lucrative opportunities are waiting for you, the ruling ally will boost your business. Keep a clear mind to tie up loose ends. There are changes that you can benefit from.

Goat(*) (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):
Think twice before you act. Take care of your own affairs, avoid getting involved in matters that are none of your business. The best advise is to seek advise from those you can trust.

Monkey(*) (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016):
Be vigilant, be observant. Watch those around you and find out who your true friends are. Make your own decisions and stick with them. Changing horses midstream won’t get you anywhere.

Rooster(*) (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017):
Plan mindfully and act with utmost care. Make one step after the other knowing that certain things we do can not be undone. Taking care of your family adds tremendously to the month.

No month without special days. This month is no exception to this rule.
When it comes to short-ranged projects they should not be started on 08 October 2017, not on 20 October 2017, and not on 01 November 2017. Regarding long-ranged projects we have to step back on 19 October 2017 and on 31 October 2017.

May we have a joyful month in which we are able to enjoy the company of those we have to deal with.

(*) for this kind of analysis we work with the solar calendar. With a satisfying accuracy we can say that all years start on 04 February. This means that e.g. a person born on 31 January 1983 is born in the year of the dog as the year of the pig starts on 04 February 1983. In consultations I certainly work with the exact dates and times.
