Chinese 20th, M-T-K 19th. Bird, Khen, White 8. The 19th is omitted in Chinese practice this month, so back out of synch we go. Again, I am giving you fair reminder that Monday is Lha Bab Duchen, so if you plan correctly, today can be the start of a long weekend. My advice? Take off early today. This is a great time of year, so enjoy yourself. If you are a person who works for money, subject to a supervisor or something, this is a good day to ask favors -- as in, "Hey, I have to leave early today, and I won't be back until Tuesday." Everybody appreciates it when you "go direct." Today is also a good day to get married, take empowerments, or work on construction projects. You'll want to avoid festivals, and sorry to say -- today isn't very good for dogs.
