Last week was no prize. This week makes up for everything. Well, it could make up for everything, if we could possibly avoid fiddling with the dials and switches. You will note there is no mention of geological or environmental issues in this week's report. Do not take this to mean that such issues are absent; only that we are looking in other directions this week... trying to put out an upbeat message, and pump up the energy. What am I really trying to say? Well, like that line from Men In Black: "There's always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet, and the only way these people can get on with their happy lives is that they Do... Not... Know about it!"
August 16, 2010 - Chinese 8th, M-T-K 7th. Bird, Khen, White 8. If battles start up today, which they might, then you have a good chance to emerge the winner. However, every battle is ultimately a battle with one's self, so who wins what? Good day to make important requests. Avoid crowds. Not a bad day for sang, but since it is a Monday, not an ideal day either. Not bad for travel.
August 17, 2010 - Chinese 9th, M-T-K 8th. Dog, Kham, Red 9. Tara Day. Medicine Buddha Day. Today is zin phung. This is a good day for jewel offerings. Generally a day of increase. Don't cut or wash your hair today, no matter what anybody tells you. Grand day for blacksmiths. Whatever you do today, do it yourself. No naga offerings today.
August 18, 2010 - Chinese 10th, M-T-K 9th. Pig, Gin, White 1. Drubjor. Whatever needs to get done, this is the day to do it. Call this "Lucky Wednesday" if it makes you happy. To guarantee success, emphasize Vajrakilaya, and handle the naga portfolio with care -- no offerings, mind you. Travel is highly favorable.
August 19, 2010 - Chinese 11th, M-T-K 10th. Mouse, Zin, Black 2. Guru Rinpoche Day. From a strict astrological viewpoint, this is what you call your classic "negative energy" day, which we suppose somehow relates to yesterday, which was a classic "positive" energy day. If you can free yourself from this dualistic thinking, then who cares what day it is? From a spiritual viewpoint, whatever that is, today is auspicious -- but not for naga offerings.
August 20, 2010 - Chinese 12th, M-T-K 11th. Ox, Zon, Blue 3. A good day all around, but let go of the reins, and don't make any quick moves. Let this day unfold as it wishes, and you will be rewarded for your detached patience. Naga offerings possible.
August 21, 2010 - Chinese 13th, M-T-K 12th. Tiger, Li, Green 4. This is a powerful and positive day all the way around. In particular, this is a good day to get out. Travel east or west is favorable.
August 22, 2010 - Chinese 14th, M-T-K 13th. Rabbit, Khon, Yellow 5. Hello, all you Virgos! Oops! Was that too insensitive? This day may not be to anyone's liking.
Naga observations for the seventh month: Good days are lunar 1, 11, 19, 21, 22, 23, 29. Bad days are 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 16.
