Namaste,

Does anyone know if the Grand Sextile of July 29, 2013
has some importance in the Buddhist tradition?
In astrological terms, a grand sextile is an extremely rare,
six-pointed star, or hexagram, that forms in the heavens
when six planets align, each approximately sixty degrees apart.

Yours gratefully,
John

Not really as no Buddhist lineage really uses this type of Tropical Astrology (Kalachakra does, but it is a different system than Western, and I am not sure that in Tibet it had enough influence for them to calculate Tropically, I think they mainly use a Sidereal Zodiac... still not completely sure about this).

Anyway, astrologically it is significant.

Michele Knight is a pretty good astrologer and this is what she has to say about it:
