The Modern Woman  and the Ancient Chinese Almanac

Cyndy and Sue are best friends. They both graduated from college with a double major in English and Marketing. Cyn has a great job as an editor at a leading woman’s magazine, but Sue has been stuck in the marketing department at the same company for 10 years. Cyn is married to Phil, and they have two wonderful kids. Sue has been on a phenomenal streak of dating losers for the past decade. Cyn’s almost paid off her mortgage and established a substantial college fund for her kids. Sue is living paycheck to paycheck and leasing an apartment.

Sue has always been envious of Cyn’s accomplishments after graduation. However, before entering the professional world, Cyn was envious of Sue’s! It seems that in high school, Sue was voted most likely to succeed and Homecoming Queen. Both women attended the same university. Sue graduated with honors, but Cyn barely graduated in the top half of her class. Sue was hired for a higher position soon after graduating. But as Sue’s career stagnated, Cyn’s rise to the top was steady.

Sue has been questioning why her life has turned out the way it has and why Cyn’s life has been so successful. Then, one day Sue was visiting Cyn in her corner office with a great view of the bay. While Cyn was taking a call from the VP of customer service, Sue happened to glance at her day planner for December. Cyn had highlighted certain days and made these notations:

Unlucky days, do not schedule anything important: December 8 and 21.

Good days to get a mammogram: December 2, 10, 12, 15, 22, 24 and 27.

Auspicious Days for my little sister’s wedding: December 3, 4, 6, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29 and 30.

Dates to avoid for my little sister’s wedding: December 1, 2, 7, 8, 14, 15, 20, 26 and 27.

Good dates for Brian to pop the question to Liz: December 1, 3, 9, 23 and 31.

Best dates to close on the rental property: December 1, 3, 6, 10, 12, 14, 16, 19, 22, 24, 26 and 28.

Days to get my hair done at Vic’s salon: December 1, 2, 6, 9, 10, 14, 17, 20, 23, 25, 27 and 30.

When Cyn got off the phone, Sue asked her how she came up with this. After playfully chiding Sue for being so nosy, she told this story.

“It all began after I first started working at the company. I was getting my hair done and had out my day planner to schedule activities for coming months. Zeus, my hairdresser, suggested there was an easier and more successful way to plan out my life. He said to check out the Chinese Almanac, to schedule everything from routine activities to the biggest, life-changing events. I did and never looked back.”

Sue asked Cyn why she never told her about the Chinese Almanac. She replied that Sue had said she never believed in luck and, anyway, could make her own. Sue had always believed her destiny was in her own hands. Cyn’s dramatic results, however, convinced her to re-evaluate her stance on Chinese Astrology and luck.

Sue is now using the Chinese Almanac to help plan her life. She realizes everyone is lucky at one time or another, but the most successful people plan ahead to take best advantage when lucky breaks occur.
