Weekly Tibetan Astrology: January 24 - January 30, 2011

Note: The Year of the Iron Tiger is winding to a close. Surprises are possible, but there will be no surprise from the elements, where the message is wet and cold, with the emphasis on wet. Any travel this week will require skill and patience. Many people will be preoccupied making plans for next Thursday's lunar New Year, but that is not necessarily a good thing. It is better to stay focused on what is in front of you this week, and let next week take care of itself. The main considerations this week are to relax, avoid strife, stop worrying, and meditate. By the way -- seems like a number of people really enjoyed our impromptu "Dudjom Rinpoche Week" last week, so we'll try to do more things like that in the future.

January 24, 2011 - Chinese 21st, M-T-K 20th. Dragon, Zin, Red 9. Avoid disagreements at work or home. Today is a good day for making jewel offerings, or simply acquiring another precious or semi-precious stone to add to your mandala.

January 25, 2011 - Chinese 22nd, M-T-K 21st. Snake, Zon, White 1. A generally positive day to get things done, but make sure you get enough rest.

January 26, 2011 - Chinese 23rd, M-T-K 22nd. Horse, Li, Black 2. Worries and perceived threats seem to mount. Shut the door, get on the cushion, and don't watch the clock. The weather could make news.

January 27, 2011 - Chinese 24th, M-T-K 23rd. Sheep, Khon, Blue 3. Hope you are still on the cushion, because today is rewarding for those who take things calmly. Do not try to force or control events. Troublesome day for government. Fruitful day for practitioners.

January 28, 2011 - Chinese 25th, M-T-K 25th. Monkey, Dwa, Green 4. Dakini Day. Note omitted day in Tibetan practice. Today is zin phung. Stick close to familiar places and give the day to the dakini.

January 29, 2011 - Chinese 26th, M-T-K 26th. Bird, Khen, Yellow 5. A generally positive day. Obstacles will be overcome. Today is the anniversary of the first Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye (1813-1899).

January 30, 2011 - Chinese 27th, M-T-K 27th. Dog, Kham, White 6. Try not to think too much. Take things very easy and avoid strife.

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.

I enjoyed all the Dudjom Rinpoche stuff, more please.

If you are taking requests, I'd like to see anything on Chod, particularly Surmang tradition.

Also more details on Mo using a Mala. I experimented with it yesterday and will be asking Lama Wangu when he comes back next week, but it's always good to have an online resources.

I second Karma Phuntsok.

Trying to understand tantra, I'm reading "The Lion's Roar" from Chogyam Trungpa.

Alexander Berzin's "Making Sense of Tantra" is more hard to me to grasp.

Any suggestion will be much appreciated.
