Chinese 15th, M-T-K 15th. Dragon, Dwa, Red 9. I cannot emphasize enough what a dicey day it is today. On the one hand, we have a lunar eclipse, so everything is magnified by a factor of 1,000. On the other hand, we have New Year's Eve. So, that means tomorrow's hangover is going to be a beauty. This is also the anniversay of Jigme Phuntsok, who was a very popular lama in Kham, so in his honor, maybe we want to tame it down some, eh? Today is also the Full Moon, so expect all sorts of excitement on the roadways -- and this being a Dragon day, that means roadblocks and drunk checkpoints. Getting the idea? A great day to stay home with the family and count your blessings. Today is wind-wind, so troublesome travel somewhat mitigated, but that wind better "blow" clean. Seriously -- stay home and practice. Live to see the New Year. One more thing -- this is the proverbial "blue moon," as in "once in a blue moon," i.e. the second full moon this month, and the first blue moon on New Year's Eve in 20 years. So -- what the heck -- do something dramatic and original.
