Myanmar Planetary Post

My business partner or my friend, Janis, she already returned back.
Yesterday, she visited Shwedagon Pagoda. She was very interested in planetary post while her visiting pagoda. Myanmar local people are pouring water and decorated with strange things like flags(Myanmar name as Dagung-Kokkar).
She asked me about that. I explained her very well.
Now, I'd like to share this information to you.

Myanmar Astrology recognizes the seven planets, namely Sun, Mon, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Saturn. In addition, it recognizes two other planets, Rahu and Kate. All the Myanmar names of the planets are borrowed from Hindu Astrology, but the Myanmar Rahu and Kate are different from the Hindu Rahu and Kate. The Myanmar considers them to be distinct and separate planets, whereas Hindu astrology considers them to be either the Dragon’s Head and Tails, or Ascending and Descending Nodes. To the Myanmar People, Kate is the king of all planets. As with other Nations the Myanmar name the seven days of their week after the seven planets, but Myanmar astrology recognizes an eight days week, Wednesday being divided into two days; until 6 p.m. it is Wednesday, but after 6 p.m. to the midnight it is rahu’s day.

Just as the gods of Hindu mythology, ride on particular animals as their vehicle, the nine Myanmar planets have their own animal vehicles and are often represent by these animals;

- Sunday planet rides on a Galon, the Pali Garuda

- Monday planet rides on Tiger

- Tuesday planet rides on Lion.

- Wednesday planet rides of an elephant with tusk. (Tusk elephants are believed to be more

powerful than elephant with tusk)

- Rahu’s planet rides on a tusk less elephant.

- Thursday planet rides on rat.

- Friday’s planet rides on guinea pig

- Saturday planet rides on a naga (dragon).

- Kate planet rides on an “Animal of five beauties, a mythical animal with the antlers of a deer, the tusk and trunk of an elephant, the mane of a lion, the body of a Naga, and the tail of a fish.

The following is the chart which describes you the days of the week and their respective cardinal point.
