When it comes to money, all of us could probably use more of it in 2011. February 3 marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year and with it will come a rare astrological occurrence: a handful of Triple Metal days. What are these and why are they significant? Let’s break it down.
A Triple Metal day -- or triple anything day -- occurs when one element rules the year, month, and day. In 2011, the Year of the Metal Rabbit, we’ll have 18 days to take advantage of this powerful influence.
What does the influence of Metal bring? In Chinese Astrology, Metal is the element most closely associated with money. Like gold coins in a treasure chest, Metal is extracted from the earth and therefore represents the riches that lie waiting for us all. In addition to money, Metal also represents the strength and fortitude required to obtain it. Determination, ambition, and self-reliance will all be themes during a Metal year. In general, people have the motivation and persistence to succeed. Hallelujah!
With Triple Metal days to look forward to, you can plan the launch of your business, when to ask for a raise, and other money making ventures to coincide with these lucky occurrences. Triple Metal days are also the best times to buy a lottery ticket or gamble. If you’re not the risk-taking type, simply use these days to organize your finances, buy stock shares, or make other important purchases. The best business or real estate deals can often be made on Triple Metal days.
The Year of the Metal Rabbit will also heighten our desires for the finer things in life. Use your Triple Metal days to buy new furniture or inspiring art for your home. Plan that exotic vacation or romantic weekend getaway while making sure to book tickets or buy travel packages on your lucky days.
So when are the Triple Metal days? There are four in February – the 4th, 5th, 14th, and 15th. In March, there are six – the 6th, 7th, 16th, 17th, 26th, and 27th. Then, the rest will fall at the end of the year on December 1st, 2nd, 11th, 12th, 31st and January 1st, 10th, and 11th.
If you miss out on the Triple Metal days at the beginning of the year, use the end of 2011 to take risks or embark on new money making ventures. Make sure you mark them on your calendar and look for golden opportunities on these days. May the force of Metal be with us all!
