Tibetan Astrology and Geomancy


Tibetan Astrology and Geomancy Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tibet, often called the spiritual and physical roof of the world has been the source of great inspiration to Westerners for over two centuries. Is Tibetan astrology as profound as its spiritual teachings? Well-known astrologer Michael Erlewine has spent the last thirty years finding out, including two trips to Tibet and China, learning to read Tibetan along the way. In this 827-page you will find 579 full-color diagrams and scores of tables. The book also includes tarot-card-like images for many Tibetan indicators plus traditional interpretations translated directly from the Tibetan into English.

Erlewine introduces readers to the basic fundamentals of Tibetan astrology. Of course topics like the Five Elements, Twelve Animals Signs, the 60-year Element-Animal Cycle, the Nine-numbered Magic Square, and the Eight Trigrams of the I-Ching are covered. But there are dozens of other topics, including the Tibetan Calendar (and how to use it), Lunar Months, the 30 Lunar Days, Dharma Practice Days, 11 Karanas, 27 Lunar Mansions, Papme Mewa, Descending Mewa, Annual and Daily Mewa and Par-Kha, Descending Par-Kha, Solar Data, 8 Directions, 8 Portents, 27 Yogas, Weekday Combinations, Travel Days, Bad Years, Log-Men, Lo-Khak, Shi-Shey, Thus-Sun, Tomb Signs, 24 Seasonal Sectors, 28 Great Conjunctions, 15 Conjunctures, Ten Element Combinations, Vital Forces, Deu Kha-Mar, Cosmic Tortoise, 12 Nidanas, Geomancy and a special section on the 105 Major Earth Lords. More.

Michael Erlewine is an internationally-known astrologer with over 40 years of experience as an author, teacher, and counselor. Aside from founding Matrix Software (the first astrological software company), Erlewine is also anInternet content pioneer, founding sites like,,,, and many others. He has authored more than 13 books on astrology and over a dozen books on music and film. You can Google Michael Erlewine or go to http: // for more details.
