Giungtsi Astrology

Giungtsi Astrology

Giungtsi Astrology short course for Tibetan Medicine students.

This astrology short course was presented as an especially important course of study for those involved in Tibetan Sowa Rigpa medicine practice.

Although there are three different systems of astrology used in Tibetan society, the primary one is Giungtsi (‘byung rtsis), or elemental astrology, pertaining to the five elements: wood (shing), fire (me), earth (sa), metal (lcags) and water (chu).  The whole world is explained and calculated according to these five elemental energies.

Giungtsi astrology has been relied on for centuries by Tibetans in matters such as health, family, natal charts, work, festivals, ecology balancing and spiritual consultation. Nowadays, daily consultations are also used for business, horoscopes, marriages, births, and for people who are sick. The Tibetan people also use astrology as the basis for rite and ritual healing methods against the major psycho-emotional disharmonies and other serious illnesses.

These two Giungtsi astrology seminars included a prepared booklet geared towards easy use, with tables and simple instructions for looking up results.  The seminars covered the basic subjects that are essential to “medical astrology”, as well as an understanding of its critical importance in body-mind health consultations.
