Weekly Tibetan Astrology: April 26 - May 2, 2010

NOTE: This is a good week to send or exchange gifts, make donations, and so forth. There may be further, significant geological, political, or other upsets this week. It is possible we will see the death of a celebrated person this week. There is an indication of an outrage of some sort.

April 26, 2010 - Chinese 13th, M-T-K 13th. Tiger, Li, White 1. Mixed messages today. Small spats can be smoothed over with token gifts. Large arguments are better left alone.

April 27, 2010 - Chinese 14th, M-T-K 14th. Rabbit, Khon, Black 2. Not a good day for weddings. We may see military action proximate to this day. We may see further obstacles from the elements.

April 28, 2010 - Chinese 16th, M-T-K 15th. Snake, Khen, Green 4. Note lunar 15th omitted in Chinese practice. Today we commemorate Buddha's teaching of the Kalachakra Tantra. There is a powerful, pivotal, and most unusual sequence of energies proximate to today. Concentrate on good works and avoid negativity at all costs.

April 29, 2010 - Chinese 17th, M-T-K 16th. Horse, Kham, Yellow 5. Today is baden, so no prayer flags. Today is the anniversary of the Terton Mingyur Dorje. Today is also nyi nak.

April 30, 2010 - Chinese 18th, M-T-K 17th. Sheep, Gin, White 6. Today is zin phung. I reserve the right not to discuss what I see for today. This is the 35th Anniversary of the Fall of Saigon.

May 1, 2010 -  Chinese 19th, M-T-K 18th. Monkey, Zin, Red 7. Today is observed as the anniversary of the founding of the Chagpori medical school at Lhasa, and an important day for Tibetan doctors everywhere. Moderately favorable day. Today is the 136th Running for the Roses: the Kentucky Derby. As a Monkey day, today is favorable for gamblers, so invoke the local deities and bet the farm. Lookin' At Lucky with track odds of 2:1 is the current favorite to win, and Sidneys Candy at 3:1 is also a strong attraction. Everybody and his brother with a hot three year old wants some of the magic Mine That Bird gave last year (and do I love that horse) but lightning doesn't strike twice. I am sort of looking at 10:1 Ice Box, to show, but watch the odds move as the beards get down. The weather will be muggy in Louisville on Saturday, and that horse likes muggy weather. Don't you just love DTBA? UPDATE: After we published Washington Post suggested an exacta box on Lookin' At Lucky and Ice Box, but you heard it here first. POST-RACE UPDATE: As predicted, Ice Box ran in the money, but they kept the brakes on too long. Lookin' At Lucky doesn't like the rain.

May 2, 2010 - Chinese 20th, M-T-K 19th. Bird, Zon, White 8. Today's energies are at opposition with each other.

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.

Rinpoche, sometimes you are a scream. I never laughed so hard in my life.

Local Deities in KY? Like Jack Daniels?

No, make offerings to the Triple Jewel for the horses welfare, elimination of negative karma and higher rebirth.

Both of you win much more than money. A few dollars or a few lifetimes as a wheel-turning king? Hmm.

Don't let them hear you say that in Kentucky. Jack Daniels is from Tennessee.

Now that the 30th has past, what was it that you 'saw' that you decided not to comment on?
