NOTE: The environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is bringing the cranks and doomsayers out of the woodwork, and I do not want to be another one of them. However, I do wish to point out that well before this and other undersea disasters even occurred, the astrology was telling us -- and we were reporting here -- that there is an extreme danger associated with earthquakes and undersea geological disasters on the most terrible possible scale. Now it seems that science is catching up with astrology. The scientists are telling us that the situation in the Gulf is particularly volatile because that well is several miles down, and the oil is sitting on top of molten magma. If steam is created down there, it is going to lead to something nobody wishes to see or experience. In effect, we are talking about an "oil volcano" with its associated risks of toxic gases and tsunamis. I am not by nature an alarmist, but I would be less than candid if I told you I was not alarmed. I bring this up to explain why we need to pay special attention to fire/earth, water/earth, and water/fire situations coupled with movement of the earth spirits, nagas, and so forth. This is a very dangerous time. [We first published this on Thursday June 24th and have now re-dated it into our feed.]
June 28, 2010 - Chinese 17th, M-T-K 17th. Horse, Li, Black 2. Duplicated day in Chinese practice. Water Earth. Problematic day with unfavorable elements. Effects can be mitigated by joyous practice. Remember the nagas. Don't go out at night.
June 29, 2010 - Chinese 18th, M-T-K 18th. Sheep, Khon, Blue 3. Today is zin phung. Fire Earth moving to Fire Fire. While progress is possible, and while plans may come to fruition, there is obstruction from the elements. Today and twenty-four hours on either side are worth watching. Remember the nagas. Don't harm trees today.
June 30, 2010 - Chinese 19th, M-T-K 19th. Monkey, Dwa, Green 4. An excellent day to spend with friends. If you feel that you do not or cannot have any friends, then I will be your friend. Remember the nagas. Travel east today. Not bad for medical treatment.
July 1, 2010 - Chinese 20th, M-T-K 20th. Bird, Khen, Yellow 5. You can make a jewel offering today, if you can manage to get past the pettiness. I would encourage you to do both. Remember the nagas. Don't disturb the earth element. Usually, today would be good for important requests.
July 2, 2010 - Chinese 21st, M-T-K 21st. Dog, Kham, White 6. A positive day in most every respect, but surrounded, as it were. Not good for travel.
July 3, 2010 - Chinese 22nd, M-T-K 22nd. Pig, Gin, Red 7. Earth Fire. Today is baden, so no flags. Highly obstructing energies. No offerings to nagas are possible today. Not good for travel. Avoid arguments. Good day for Vajrakilaya.
July 4, 2010 - Chinese 23rd, M-T-K 23rd. Mouse, Zin, White 8. Highly obstructing energies. Failure of command resulting in disaster. Water Fire transiting into Water Fire tomorrow with zin phung. Indeed, the fifth and sixth do not look good. Make offerings to dharmapalas. Today is Independence Day in the United States, and is known as Tarthang Rinpoche's favorite holiday.
Naga observations for the fifth month: Only one really good day this month -- lunar 15, but offerings also possible on 9, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27. Nine bad days -- 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 16, 22.
