Chinese 13th, M-T-K 13th. Tiger, Kham, White 1. Hallowe'en. Astrological considerations argue in favor of taking the conservative path today, so if you're going to the Hooker's Ball, be sure to wear lots of glitter. Skillful actions will be successful, as will travels to the east or west. Good day to make offerings. Beware of destructive gambling and hasty marriage, not necessarily in that order, and not all that different. It is always difficult to say goodbye to another October, but as we know, impermanence is the name of the game, and attachment is the cause of the pain. We do have Lha Bab Duchen to look forward to in a few days, so start making preparations now. How about nyungne this time, instead of the usual material stuff? Or, how about nyungne and the usual material stuff? Lha Bab Duchen is baden this year, so that cuts out refreshing the prayer flags. With that exception, why not have at it in grand style? Cause some books to be printed, some stupas to be built, or send around a little sunshine to all the various good causes. What are you saving for... Christmas?
