NOTE: According to the Phugpa system calendars, this week's elements are all about earth and water. Nobody wants to think about more landslides or flooding, but with zin phung early in the week, the possibility is definitely there. This, of course, is but one interpretation. The other interpretation is that this week could be a joyous one (the water-earth or earth-water combination being reckoned as auspicious). I like to keep things positive, don't you? So, lets go with the good stuff this week, and if geological excitation arises --- well, we'll deal with that, too. Actually, I am seeing an undercurrent of material increase this week, and we all know the way to make sure that happens, right? Open up those pockets, and practice some material generosity.
August 23, 2010 - Chinese 14th, M-T-K 14th. Rabbit, Khon, Yellow 5. Duplicated day in Chinese practice. There might be some good news today, but it will definitely be accompanied by perspiration. Don't think too much: just be happy. Travel not so good today. Stay out of the water and don't disturb the earth.
August 24, 2010 - Chinese 15th, M-T-K 15th. Dragon, Dwa, White 6. Amitabha Buddha Day. Full moon. Today is zin phung. Today is also sojong. This is an important day for Tibetan doctors, being the anniversary of Trapa Ngonshe's discovery of the Four Medical Tantras. That aside, there are extremely negative energies associated with today -- all of which point to weakening. Travel not good today, but if you must, then travel to the east could be accomplished. Avoid arguments.
August 25, 2010 - Chinese 16th, M-T-K 16th. Snake, Khen, Red 7. Today is baden, so no prayer flags. You might get a nice surprise today. Generally positive energies. If you've been sick, today is a good day to stand up and see the sky, but don't go or stay upstairs. Travel north, east, or west, is not so good. Go vegetarian today.
August 26, 2010 - Chinese 17th, M-T-K 17th. Horse, Kham, White 8. Don't engage in risky business today. Gather your resources and conserve your energy. Not a good day for haircuts. Stay away from the water. Not a bad day for sang.
August 27, 2010 - Chinese 18th, M-T-K 18th. Sheep, Gin, Red 9. Joyful increase is entirely possible, but avoid risks or questionable situations. Good day to clean up the house. Vajrakilaya helps today. Accept gifts, but avoid purchases. Dzambala also good today.
August 28, 2010 - Chinese 19th, M-T-K Monkey, Zin, White 1. Good day for the family. Give your loved one some flowers, and take the kids someplace amusing -- but keep your eye on them at all costs: don't let them run off alone. Good day to plant trees. Not a bad day for marriage.
August 29, 2010 - Chinese 20th, M-T-K 20th. Bird, Zon, Black 2. Mixed messages today. Increase possible, but with some opposition. You are likely to be worn out. Stick close to home and clear obstacles. Don't go out at night.
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.
