NOTE: The classic August doldrums are officially here. There will be health challenges for some of us, but by Sunday, positive energies will favor all. Interesting geological or environmental events are possible proximate to the weekend. What we call "state of mind" is all-important this week. I many times tell people: "What the mind can see, the hand can hold," which is to say that all things are possible.
August 2, 2010 - Chinese 22nd, M-T-K 22nd. Snake, Khen, White 1. This week gets off to a slow start. There is a tendency to spend too much, and for all the wrong reasons. This is a day that fights with itself. Negativity rises. Travel south is O.K.
August 3, 2010 - Chinese 23rd, M-T-K 23rd. Horse, Kham, Black 2. You may worry somewhat, but actions that offer material support will succeed.
August 4, 2010 - Chinese 24th, M-T-K 24th. Sheep, Gin, Blue 3. The stars sometimes favor what the elements do not favor. What is attained will weaken. Travel is rewarded. Good day for Vajrakilaya.
August 5, 2010 - Chinese 25th, M-T-K 25th. Monkey, Zin, Green 4. Dakini Day. The Monkey favors chance. The Green 4 augurs well for medical treatment. The la is in the tongue today. Tsaton is negative for vitality and indicates that life expectancy is diminished. Wind-water developing to wind-wind indicates the need for strong prayer. One's strength will be tested. As a courtesy to one particular reader: the Metal Horse's body element is earth, and the la is wood.
August 6, 2010 - Chinese 26th, M-T-K 26th. Bird, Zon, Yellow 5. Sometimes you do get what you want and what you need. Maybe a little geological or environmental interest beginning right around now -- could express itself today or tomorrow. This is a powerful day. In Western astrological terms, note the Grand Cardinal Cross from 18:00 GMT.
August 7, 2010 - Chinese 28th, M-T-K 27th. Pig, Khon, Red 7. Note omitted day in Chinese practice (which would have been a zin phung day, if that makes sense to you). A dangerous situation must be quickly resolved or it will end badly. There is no skating through - strong religious practice on this day is thoroughly necessary. Shake, rattle, and roll.
August 8, 2010 - Chinese 29th, M-T-K 28th. Mouse, Dwa, White 8. Excellent energies. Vitality can return. Today is a yan kwong day.
Naga observations for the sixth month: Five really good days this month -- lunar 8, 15, 25, 29, 30, and offerings also possible on 4, 17, 18. Ten bad days -- 1, 3, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 16, 19, 22.
