Weekly Tibetan Astrology: October 25 - October 31, 2010

NOTE: This week, we observe Lha Bab Duchen, the last of the so-called "ten million days" for 2010.  Buddha spent three months teaching in the realm of gods, and this marks the day he returned to the human realm. Whatever you do this Friday, positive or negative, will see results magnified ten million times. Unless you feel yourself immune to cause and effect, that is something to keep in mind.

Despite the auspicious character of Lha Bab Duchen, and a Drubjor day on Tuesday, this week is marked by generally negative energy. It is not out of the question to expect political turmoil, sudden violence, accidents, military or paramilitary action, geological upset, and damaging storms.

This might be a good time to go back and re-read the general prognostications for 2010 we published in December of last year. Note particularly the remarks on spiritual discord. Now is when we will see some of that demonstrated to perfection.

By the way -- the San Francisco Giants made it to the World Series of Baseball. There are probably more Tibetan Buddhists in San Francisco than anywhere else in America. We are reporting the schedule for the World Series games with complete neutrality, and no favoritism whatsoever, as you can clearly see below.

October 25, 2010 - Chinese 18th, M-T-K 18th. Sheep, Khon, White 6. Not a good day for government and a dangerous day of the most negative possible character. Act with extreme caution in all things today. What is done in haste will be regretted with painful slowness.

October 26, 2010 - Chinese 19th, M-T-K 19th. Monkey, Dwa, Red 7. Today is Drubjor. Yes! We have a double drubjor this month! If you were going to put up flags on Friday, but can't because it is not auspicious to put up flags, then use this day instead. This is a highly successful day when all the brakes are off, so whatever you do, strongly do. Best day all year to buy a new car - but take it straight home and put it in the garage until next week. Some will be tempted to use today's energy for vengeance. Use today's energy for positive accomplishments, instead. The Dalai Lama is scheduled for Miami, Florida today.

October 27, 2010 - Chinese 20th, M-T-K 20th. Bird, Khen White 8. Today is nyi nak. What harms unity, harms sanity. Worry and strife begins. Giants vs Rangers at the Holy City of San Francisco. UPDATED: Giants win, 11-7.

October 28, 2010 - Chinese 21st, M-T-K 21st. Dog, Kham, Red 9. Worry and strife continues. This is an extremely beclouded and negative day -- virtually, if not actually,  demonic in character. I am again suggesting that the time has come to absorb the longevity of a troublesome embodiment of malevolence and anger, purify it, and liberate it into basic space. On a much more positive note, Giants vs Rangers at the Holy City of San Francisco. UPDATED: Giants win, 9-0.

October 29, 2010 - Chinese 22nd, M-T-K 22nd. Pig, Gin, White 1. Lha Bab Duchen. Today is zin phung. Today is also baden, so no flags today.

October 30, 2010 - Chinese 23rd, M-T-K 23rd. Mouse, Zin, Black 2.  Today is yan kwong. If there is no significant disaster stirring up some part of the world today, be very, very surprised. Giants vs Rangers at some horrid place in Evil Texas. UPDATED: Rangers steal, 4-2.

October 31, 2010 - Chinese 24th, M-T-K 24th. Ox, Zon, Blue 3. Halloween. If you have a choice between going out and staying in tonight, by all means stay inside. This is most definitely not a lucky night for trick or treating. Giants vs Rangers at some horrid place in Evil Texas. UPDATED: Giants win, 4-0. Trick or treat?

Naga observations for the ninth  month: In general, I want to say it is very bad to cut trees this month. Best days for offerings are lunar 12, 17, 27, and 29. Studiously avoid 6, 10, 13, 16, 20, 22, 24, 25, and 26.

Please leave your SFO bias outside of your astrology reports.

By the way, there are many buddhists living in Texas, especially in and around Dallas, Houston, and Austin.

Editor said...

That may be true.

It is also true that proximate to San Francisco winning the pennant, a series of tornadoes struck Texas.

Just sayin'

Dear Anonymous:

What "SFO bias" are you on about? I just don't see it.

I agree with Objective Observer.

I think this is balanced, fair reporting.

I do not live in San Francisco.

I live in South San Francisco.

I do not have anything against Texas, which is like southeast of here.

However, southeast is an unlucky direction.

Go figure.

Thank you for accurately reporting the FACTS in your astrology reports!

That being said, the Holy is not doing all that well against Evil these days, at least on a day to day basis.

That being said, I suggest hedging your bets regarding the outcome of this epic confrontation. Even though Holy has the best pitching and uncanny timing with their hitting, the outcome is far from certain.

gosh darn: Oct 21-22 was the first time in years(?)that standing in front of a moving train seemed to be a thoughtful action - sparing myself and others my boundless, contagious, regenerating misery. time moved on and my body was slow to respond to any commands, so the logic of that started to fall apart. the week of 25-28 saw my partner (after a fashion) attack me relentlessly over perceived imperfections to the point that I had to truly retreat. Then friday afternoon out of nowhere I decided to put my phone number and a respectable slogan on my work truck - something I had resisted doing for years - but suddenly capitulated on facing realistic dread about income; THEN I read your column about the week of 25-30. man, my account speaks for itself. btw, I can hardly imagine the compounded misery I would bring into existence if chose death as a way to end existential suffering. Its my understanding that the increasing numbers of people we have walking on the earth are the result of animal (or other?) energies incarnating as human, but the existing human energies (beings) not "graduating" to demi-god or higher realms. I would love to converse about this with someone. I know a Theravada monk a few cities away...but the thought of disappointment after travel...but this last week was a time, though, that a bearable future seemed as likely as a winning lotto ticket. should teach me to believe what I think...rock on!

"If you're going to san francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair. If you're going to san francisco, you're gonna meet a lot of devil people there." R.Plant, 1973. words to live by, as far as I'm concerned, and I've lived within sight of the city for 30 years. The progressive, positive-thinking vibration just supplies contrast to the faintly pulsing undercurrent of dissemblance.
