Hello, world! We are well into 2023 and I hope you’re having a great start to the new year! I wish you prosperity, lots of energy, and health, and may all your dreams come true!
On December 31st, as the clock struck 12 at midnight, I found myself not making any wishes as I would usually do. Instead, I felt content and hugged all of the friends I was celebrating with. I realized that I didn’t need to make new wishes or resolutions or reset my life because everything is already set into motion, the gears are turning and I feel I’m heading in the right direction. 2022 ended on a happy note and I felt at peace with everything that happened, even if I didn’t get to reach all of my goals. Even so, I am determined to continue down the path I had chosen for myself as it brings me happiness and peace of mind.
Some days ago I learned about the Rokuyo calendar, a Japanese system that determines whether a day will be lucky or unlucky. The Japanese use a few kinds of calendars for guidance, and the Rokuyo calendar is mainly used for planning important events, such as weddings, funerals, and other ceremonies. But they also use it when planning business trips or meetings, vacations, or even daily trivial things.
There are 6 types of days: Sensho day means good luck in the morning, but bad luck in the afternoon; Tomobiki means good luck all day long, except at noon; Sakimake means bad luck in the morning and good luck in the afternoon; Taian means good luck all day, the perfect one for making plans; Butsumetsu means bad luck all day, and the last one, Shakku means bad luck all day except at noon.
I’m not usually a superstitious person, but there were times when I felt that the universe played an important role in the circumstances and events that unfolded more or less in my favor. I find this calendar pretty interesting and I’m thinking of giving it a try. Whenever I’ll remember about it, I’ll check it. If you are curious, you can use this link to see it for yourself: https://www.seiyaku.com/customs/rokuyo.php
Today is a Butsumetsu day, which means bad luck all day. So far my day went well, but there were many times when Fridays were very unfavorable for me. Still, I’m not yet concerned. It’s Friday, so we should be celebrating! Have a great one!

Nice post. I know what you mean. I often feel I must be out of sync with the universe and I AM a superstitious synchronicity person which is how I experience spirituality. My last few years have been out of sync, some not my fault, maybe some was. I didn’t handle stress very well. I’ve been struggling to get right with the universe(s) — alternate ones? for a few months, but I was glad to see 2022 go. Worst year so far of my life. I know 2023 won’t be better if I can’t get back into the flow. I’m glad things are going right with you, with somebody!

Most of my friends said the same, that 2022 was a bad year. Somehow, in 2022 I found my flow. I hope you’ll find yours, but you need to trust the process. Everything that happens leads you to where you have to be and what you have to learn. Maybe you need to believe more. Have faith. Things are going to get better.
