April 12, 2010 - Chinese 29th, M-T-K 28th. Mouse, Dwa, Yellow 5. The Kagyu calendars have this as Trungpa Tulku's anniversary -- it is, according to lunar date. This is a day of worry and significant obstacles. Quite candidly, this entire week is troublesome.
April 13, 2010 - Chinese 30th, M-T-K 29th. Ox, Khen, White 6. Conflicting energies today: a so-so or 50/50 day. Sojong and of course Dharmapala Day.
April 14, 2010 - Chinese 1st of 3rd month, M-T-K 30th. Tiger, Kham, Red 7. Exactly like yesterday. Perform long life rituals or practices.
April 15, 2010 - Chinese 2nd, M-T-K 1st of 3rd month. Rabbit, Gin, White 8. Finally, a lucky day all the way around -- the only one this week, so make the most of it. Note that some Kagyu calendars, notably Nitartha, are holding this as Kalachakra New Year. How is this? The Kalachakra New Year, Vikrita, began on March 16, 2010. What's up? The epoch in which we find ourselves began on the first day of the third Tibetan month, April 1, 1927 -- the beginning of the reign of the Shambhala king Aniruddha. So, Nitartha is holding the first of the third as the New Year. Now, the Rigpa calendar is holding this as the anniversary of the day Buddha taught the Kalachakra, whereas March 29, 2010 is the "Kalachakra" anniversary of the revelation of the Kalachakra Tantra. Anyway --- Happy New Year! This epoch ends in 2027, so only seventeen years left to go before the new administration.
April 16, 2010 - Chinese 3rd, M-T-K 2nd. Dragon, Zin, Red 9. A dangerous day. Exercise extreme caution.
April 17, 2010 - Chinese 4th, M-T-K 3rd. Snake, Zon, White 1. This day argues with itself, but great luck is still possible.
April 18, 2010 - Chinese 5th, M-T-K 4th. Horse, Li, Black 2. Baden. Negative aspects associated with today. Take your baobei to lunch, but don't be cross later.
Naga observations for the third month: Four good days and several bad days this month. The four very good (lunar) days are 5, 22, 23, and 25. The particularly bad (lunar) days are 4, 6, 8, 13, 15, 16, 18, 28.
