Weekly Tibetan Astrology: August 9 - August 15, 2010

NOTE: This month (August), there are five Sundays, five Mondays, and five Tuesdays. It happens only once every 823 years. I read this on the Internet, so it must be true. 

This week, there is a rather unusual cluster of death indicators. If death upsets you, this is likely to be an upsetting time. If death is seen as nothing extraordinary, you will have a different experience. So, as in the character of all things, the character of this week rests on imputation. 

This week also heralds the seventh lunar month, which as it happens is a Monkey month. A Monkey month in a Tiger year isn't all that auspicious, but we do have a small ray of sunshine. This is an Earth Monkey month in an Iron Tiger year, wherein the "containing note" of the year is wood, which is nourished by earth. 

Nevertheless, this week is a dicey portal. If the bulk of your life, thus far, has been spent digging for treasure, maybe this is the week to earnestly begin burying treasure. Discord, wickedness, and demonic mischief may break out at any time this week, so do try to avoid the library. What do I mean by that? Neither an author nor a reader be.

Personal Note: As of yesterday, I am off on a long-planned sojourn; traveling for the next four months, visiting here and there. Several items will be auto-posted, including weekly astrology, and I will try to drop in from time to time.

August 9, 2010 - Chinese 30th, M-T-K 29th. Ox, Khen, Red 9. Dharmapala Day. A highly feminine day, but the elements (water-fire) augur death. Think of this week as a portal. By the way -- today is 8/9/10, if you like that sort of thing. You won't see it again this century. Today is also sojong. Naga offerings indicated. Watch what you say today. Important meetings indicated, but go yourself -- don't send a delegate. Travel not ideal.

August 10, 2010 - Chinese 1st of 7th lunar month, 6th Kalachakra month, M-T-K 30th. Shakyamuni Buddha Day. Tiger, Kham, White 1. Material increase possible, but again, the elements (fire-water) augur death. Naga offerings possible. Note that under the Kalachakra system, the elements are fire-fire transiting to fire-wind, which isn't all that bad as a standalone proposition. While travel east or west isn't awfully bad, it isn't all that ideal, and you should not "jump the pond," i.e. don't cross large bodies of water.

August 11, 2010 - Chinese 2nd, M-T-K 1st day of 7th lunar month. Rabbit, Gin, Black 2. Vigorous steps favored, but once more, the elements (water-fire) augur death. Excellent naga day. The Kalachakra elements are water-wind, indicating discord. Vajrakilaya helps. Usually, one would hang prayer flags today.

August 12, 2010 - Chinese 3rd, M-T-K 3rd. Dragon, Zin, Blue 3.  Note omitted day in Tibetan practice. Today is zin phung. Very favorable energies, but avoid surgery. Also avoid the mountains. Do not disturb the earth or water elements for any reason. A day to begin projects.

August 13, 2010 - Chinese 5th, M-T-K  4th. Horse, Li, Yellow 5. Note omitted day in Chinese practice. Friday the 13th. So what? Well, today is also baden, so no prayer flags. Beware a sudden decline in health. Travel not all that bad, but it will be fatiguing. A certain poverty of spirit indicated -- nothing much accomplished.

August 14, 2010 -  Chinese 6th, M-T-K 5th. Sheep, Khon, White 6. Today's symbolism is directly associated with the Lord of Death. The elements (earth-wind) augur weakening, but are transiting to earth-earth, which is favorable. Steer clear of legal entanglements, conflicts, or controversies. This is a good Saturday for chores around the house.

August 15, 2010 - Chinese 7th, M-T-K 6th. Monkey, Dwa, Red 7.  Excellent energies. Success indicated. Travel east or north possible, but not ideal.

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. 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.

It's true. Very strange. In my ESL class yesterday I taught the word "wrathful". We took special note of Vajrakilaya as an example. And I was thinking last nite when I do divination how it is/or is not permitted for us to know the time of our death. That some things are still veiled. Today I feel a strong heaviness. I was born in the year of the tiger, so perhaps these naga energies are really grabbing my psyche. Thank you for your insightful post. Very valuable.
