Chinese 18th, M-T-K 18th. Ox, Zon, White 6. Here we have an ox day in an ox year, so if you are an ox, you had better slow down to ox speed. Very nasty ill-effects will reach you when you least expect them. Thankfully, this can all be prevented by exercising yourself away from the slaughterhouse, and over to the direction of the prayer room. As annoying as this may seem, Buddhism is meant to actually be practiced, and today is the day. Numerous empowerments and other events are taking place all over the U.S. this weekend, so spend today making preparations for tomorrow. Otherwise? Historically? The 18th lunar is a dangerous day.
