Offering stars, the first term of the year: how is it right?

The stars in the first resolution of the year are recorded in the Pham calendar (Indian calendar), similar to the Islamic and solar calendars, called “nine miracles, nine attachments” (nine stars or nine stars).

According to the Indian calendar, the nine miracles include: Nhat Dieu (Thai Duong), Nguyet Dieu (Thai Yin), Hoa Dieu (Fire Star, Van Han), Thuy Dieu (Divine Spirit), Moc Dieu (Tue Tinh, Moc Duc), Kim Dieu (Thai Bach), Tho Dieu (Tho Tinh, Tho Tu, Tran Tinh). These seven are called the Seven Wonders. The other two are La Hau (Hoang Phan, Thuc Than-Comet) and Ke Do (Tue Tinh, Leopard-tailed Comet-tail).

The nine miracles are combined with the azimuths (to see astronomical and calendar calculation) as follows: Sun in the range of the signs Ox-Dan, Thai Yin in the Dog-Hoi, Van Han in the South (Ping-Wu), Thuy Dieu in the North (Nham-Ty), Moc Duc in the East (Giap-Mow), Thai Bach in the West (Canh-Dau), Tho tu in the middle palace (middle), La Hau in the Southeast (Thin–Thin – Snake), Ke capital in the Southwest (Mui-Than).

Although the names are different, the nine miracles are all understood as nine luminous celestial bodies, closely related to the calendar, astronomy, and the properties of all kinds of matter in the universe.

According to custom, every year, people coordinate the nine miracles corresponding to the age of the person in two groups of men and women to predict good and bad, good and bad… These contents are recorded in the old Ma Dang Sutra (the book of old books). Upper), Quang Dai sadhana (middle book), Dai Nhat Sutra (book 4), Seven miracles, Tai Chi decision, Thong Thu, Ngoc Hap Ky.

It should be added that the theory of the Twenty-eighty eighties (28 stars) appeared very early in India, recorded in Buddhist scriptures such as Ma Dang Old (upper book), Great Collection (volume 41), and Tu Dieu (said) above), is used to calculate the date of the year (calendar) or coordinate with the time of birth to predict the good or bad luck of each person.

China’s Theory of the Decalogue is similar, initially used to calculate the calendar, coordinate astronomical viewing; After adding many other factors as the basis for predicting fate in the Horoscope.

It can be seen that the Nine Magic (and the Twenty Eight Tutu) are elements applied in the dharma and astronomical calendar, which are directly related to human life such as earth, water, wind, fire, green trees, and time. weather, climate… Therefore, it is understandable that people deify natural factors, leading to activities of praying and worshiping.

In Thong Thu and Ngoc Hap Ky (the inscription of the Nguyen Dynasty), there are additional instructions on how to offer a copy of the term release. Bad stars that need to be neutralized include Thai Bach, Tho Tu, Mars (Van Han), La Hau, and Ke Do.

Thai Bach: The five elements belong to the metal, the master of the plague of diseases, men and women are all bad, especially for women. But the noble people (people with fame and positions) meet the year of Thai Bach is a good omen, can increase the population, and have opportunities for promotion. The five stars of the Thai White zodiac signify the great cavalry of marriage.

If you want to know which five stars are in your destiny, first calculate your age according to the lunar calendar (our age). If the number of ages is greater than nine, add the digits of age until you get a single-digit number, then look up the corresponding number of stars.

For example: People born in 1971, 52 years old in 2022, take 5 + 2 = 7, look up the number 7 to know the corresponding destiny star, the male is the Ke Do star, the female is the Sun star (see table).
