Daily horoscope of 18 February 2024
Water Rat Day
Intelligent, charismatic and secret, the Water Rat knows how to be patient and cunning to achieve his goals. If money comes to him without him seeming to care, so does his approach to life. While he’d rather hide his feelings than expressing them, the Water Rat has a unique ability to let events flow without paying them apparent attention, sometimes causing the exasperation of his relatives and loved ones. When he's reading a novel, comfortably installed in a rocking chair, he becomes totally isolated from the outside world, to the point of no longer hearing you when you call him for dinner. Appreciated by his friends for his sense of humor, his appetite for life and his fidelity, the Water Rat is a singular character, whose profound human qualities are equal to his mysterious side. During a day marked by the energies of the Water Rat, you can make unexpected discoveries, through introspection rather than through direct observation of events. Deep thinking and analysis are on the agenda, much more than the practical aspects of everyday life, which will be rather neglected. Within your company, you shall get noticed for your insight and strategic vision. In love, if your sentimental relationship is nascent or recent, your clumsiness to approach the simple gestures of daily life will make you look all the more sympathetic and touching in the eyes of your sweetheart.
9th Lunar Mansion: the Cowherd
The lodge of the Cowherd is unfavorable. Friday, the Metal element and the planet Venus are symbolically attached to this house. The Lodge of the Cowherd has a direct link with the legend of the Cowherd and the Weaver, whose union was as short as sad. It symbolizes travel, commerce and roads. Love or marital happiness is much less easy to reach for people born during the day.

Yi Jing hexagram of receptivity (坤, kūn)
The being born under the "Yi Jing hexagram of receptivity" is a humble and circumspect being, capable of easy human relations. He aspires to common prosperity and does not count his time when it comes to working for the collective interest. He tolerates solitude very well, but he is not opposed to the idea of being part of a large social circle. This kind character, who is distinguished by his modesty, never seeks to be in the center of attention. Indeed, discretion is an art of savoir-vivre in his eyes. However, the person born under the "Yi Jing hexagram of receptivity" has a real allergy against abuse of authority. Without being of an angry nature, he is the type to express his discontent by silent assassinations, or by inaction. The main life challenge of a person born under the "Yi Jing hexagram of receptivity" is to be able to develop one's ability to say no, and to better assert one's individuality with regard to society.
Water Rat's Pillar of Destiny
"The mulberry wood" (Yang)
The imaged destiny of the "mulberry wood" is propitious for the being who holds it as an annual pillar. Sometimes in the form of a bow, conceived for the defense of a citadel of its attackers, sometimes decorative material sought for theater games of shadows and light, the "mulberry wood" symbolizes the conceptual activity or craft, depending on the polarity to which it is attached. In its Yang form, it corresponds more to persons who have opted for intellectual and autonomous work. Thus, this pillar is perfectly suited to literary people, psychologists or people who lead a lonely intellectual career.
In a less favorable aspect with the other pillars, it may be a sign of unacknowledged emotional isolation or of a conscience inclined to prejudices of all kinds.
As pillar of the day of birth the pillar is not the most suitable. Indeed, its main obstacle is created by a persistent struggle between the Cartesian mind and intuition, which decreases the chances of success for many opportunities.
