NOTE: Astrologically speaking, this is a busy time. This week begins with the first day of the 11th month, which in 2010 is doubled -- we'll have two 11th lunar months, get it? This is the first of them. Next, this week includes Ngenpa Gu Dzom and Zangpo Chu Dzom. Fortunately, these fall on the weekend, so you can do as the Tibetans do: pack a lunch, saddle the horses, and go have a picnic and a horse race. Just don't wager on the outcome or forget to wear a riding helmet. This week's general message is: keep it light. See below for specific information.
December 6, 2010 - Chinese 1st, M-T-K 1st. Tiger, Kham, Green 4. Good day for naga offerings. Generally auspicious day when progress is possible.
December 7, 2010 - Chinese 2nd, M-T-K 2nd. Rabbit, Gin, Yellow 5. You can overcome obstacles, and those who oppose you can be defeated, but please watch out for accidents.
December 8, 2010 - Chinese 3rd, M-T-K 3rd. Dragon, Zin, White 6. Today is Chogyal Namkhai Norbu's birthday, and with the recent health issues he has experienced, I am sure everyone wishes him the best. Grand day for jewel offerings, and a very good day to acquire gems of all sorts-- particularly pearls.
December 9, 2010 - Chinese 4th, M-T-K 4th. Snake, Zon, Red 7. Today is zin phung. Today is also baden, so no prayer flags. You can get things accomplished, but don't overextend yourself physically or financially.
December 10, 2010 - Chinese 5th, M-T-K 5th. Horse, Li, White 8. Today commemorates the Dalai Lama's Nobel Prize. Do not fear. You will accomplish what you wish.
December 11, 2010 - Chinese 6th, M-T-K 6th. Mouse, Sheep, Khon, Red 9. Ngenpa Gu Dzom. From noon today until noon tomorrow, nine bad omens occur together. Usually, one refrains from practice on this day. Don't begin anything, and don't try to accomplish anything. The one day of the year you can sit around and watch television without guilt. Keep the day light -- a nice luncheon is definitely in order.
December 12, 2010 - Chinese 7th, M-T-K 7th. Monkey, Dwa, White 1. Zangpo Chu Dzom. From noon today until noon tomorrow, ten auspicious omens occur together. However, note that today is Nyi nak, and tomorrow is both Medicine Buddha day and Tara day. So, maybe instead of ten positive things, we will only see five? Maybe the other five will come Monday afternoon? If you relieve yourself of neurotic clinging to astrology, that will be good enough! Another day to keep things as light as possible -- sort of like a holiday when you don't expect anything.
Naga observations for the eleventh month. The best offering days are the 1st, 9th, and 21st lunar. Don't make offerings on the 4th, 5th, 8th, 10th, 15th, 16th, 19th, or 28th.
