NOTE: A dakini I know was fond of saying, "If you don't expect the unexpected, the unexpected never happens," and this week is the case study. Trouble is, most of us have been expecting the unexpected, and here comes the payoff. If you are one of those people for whom the Harry Potter films have a documentary-like quality, the concluding week in the fifth lunar month of this Tiger year is an opportune time to get out your wand.
July 5, 2010 - Chinese 24th, M-T-K 24th. Ox, Zon, Red 9. Today is zin phung. Good day to buy a car and travel far. Best drive to the temple and do a long life puja.
July 6, 2010 - Chinese 25th, M-T-K 25th. Tiger, Li, White 1. Birthday of Fourteenth Dalai Lama. It is possible to overcome all obstacles on this day. Dakini Day. Today's energies presage abrupt reversals in some circumstances, and that sound you hear may be a dime dropping.
July 7, 2010 - Chinese 26th, M-T-K 26th. Rabbit, Khon, Black 2. What we regard as "sudden misfortune" invariably has its roots in past actions. Today, some of us might be pondering those actions. Maybe that wasn't a dime. Maybe that was an anvil... the one with "Acme" written on the side.
July 8, 2010 - Chinese 27th, M-T-K 26th. Dragon, Dwa, Blue 3. Note doubled day in Tibetan practice. Swiftly arising conflict and surprise antagonism is possible.
July 9, 2010 - Chinese 28th, M-T-K 28th. Snake, Khen, Green 4. Note omitted day in Tibetan practice. A positive day in all respects. Don't disturb the wood element.
July 10, 2010 - Chinese 29th, M-T-K 29th. Horse, Kham, Yellow 5. Dharmapala Day. Never mind the tea. Break out the hard stuff. Some obstructions. Weather or other natural factors can be featured.
July 11, 2010 - Chinese 30th, M-T-K 39th. Sheep, Gin, White 6. Total Solar Eclipse. Effects of positive and negative actions multiplied by ten thousand. Today is zin phung. New moon arrives. Extremely negative energies, indicative of war or sudden acts of a hostile nature.
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.
