Weekly Tibetan Astrology: February 21 - 28, 2010

This lama in 1930s Tibet is tweeting way before tweeting became fashionable. 
Would you rather spend your time tweeting or practicing dharma on these auspicious days? Remember: everything you do this week is magnified. 
O.K., O.K., here is the Dalai Lama's address: @DalaiLama

February 21, 2010 - Chinese 8th, M-T-K 7th. Bird, Zon, White 8. Extremely favorable energies, particularly with respect to home, or living circumstances. Make the most of it.

February 22, 2010 - Chinese 9th, M-T-K 8th. Dog, Li, Red 9. Medicine Buddha Day. Tara Day. A day of considerable importance to the Kagyu (as is this entire week) and very high energy. Practice today will bring swift results.

February 23, 2010 - Chinese 10th, M-T-K 9th. Pig, Khon, White 1.  Mixed energies today. I'll take the glass that is half full.

February 24, 2010 - Chinese 11th, M-T-K 10th. Mouse, Dwa, Black 2.  Baden. Do not raise prayer flags. Guru Rinpoche Day. Today is also Terton Sogyal's Anniversary,  and the 12th Gyalwang Drukpa's birthday. Good day for long life practices, empowerments, and so forth. Note this is a yan kwong day. Try not to worry too much, or become fearful, and devote your efforts to taking steps that will help you in the long run.

February 25, 2010 - Chinese 12th, M-T-K 12th. Ox, Khen, Blue 3. Note the 11th day omitted in Tibetan practice. Very excellent energies today.

February 26, 2010 -  Chinese 13th, M-T-K 13th. Tiger, Kham, Green 4. Anniversary of the First Dodrupchen Rinpoche. Today is zin phung. Obstructed energies today. There may be some draining circumstances.

February 28, 2010 - Chinese 15th, M-T-K 15th. Dragon, Zin, White 6.  Chotrul Duchen. Today is the Display of Miracles, Garab Dorje's birthday, and Marpa's anniversary. The effects of positive or negative actions are magnified 10 million times today. Supporting energies, but don't get too carried away and act mindlessly in traffic or outside the house. Remain cautious and focus on practice in one place.

Naga observations for the first month: The only day to make Naga offerings this month is the lunar 25th (Dakini Day), and it should be elaborate. Do not make naga offerings on any other day this lunar month.

It depends on what one uses Twitter for. I use it to connect to other Dharma brothers and sisters all across the globe. Much of my time on Twitter is spent talking about Buddhas and their purelands, sharing Mahayana sutras like the Sanghata Sutra and general practice tips, days to practice, Buddhist related stories.

Like any technology, its not inherently good or bad, it all depends on the intent of the user. I try to remind people to practice whatever tradition they follow and to remain focused on Enlightenment.
