Elemental Astrology - Byung rTsis
The oldest type of Tibetan astrology, Byung-rTsis is also called Nagtsi, which means black calculation.
Byung-rTsis has its origin in ancient Tibetan Bön culture and
has Chinese influence, with its name coming from the black clothes that were common to the ancient Chinese people. Byung-rTsis
is pronounced Jung-Tsi, and in some English texts called Jungtsi.
This system has no mathematical calculations or planetary observation. Byung-rTsis is based upon the
relationships of the five elements, twelve
animal signs, nine magic Mewa square numbers and the eight
Parkha trigrams. Each year has its own element and animal sign,
and also each month, day and hour has its own element.
Elemental astrology is used to construct a birth horoscope, marriage compatibility, yearly predictions, medical calculations and death horoscopes for funeral arrangements.
In the calculation of elemental horoscope an astrologer examines five aspects of life:
Srog - Life force element,
Lus - Health element,
Wangthang - Empowering element (Finance),
Lungtha - Success element (Fortune) and
La - Essence of life.
