As in introduction, most of the daily papers have horoscopes (ดวงชะตา) -- this is Khao Sot's for today.

It includes all the signs of the zodiac (ราศี)

Thanks, Rick.

Say, wouldn't it be fun to get some of these horoscopes translated here so we can see what they predict for anyone born in the particular time frames? Maybe something like this in today's paper:

ท่านมักอยู่ในสภาพที่ใจลอยปล่อยเวลาให้ผ่านไปโดยไม่มีประโยชน์ เอกสารการเงินชำรุดเสียหาย บริวารไม่ทำตามหน้าที่ ถูกข่มขู่คุกคามโดยไม่มีเหตุผล ไม่ควรสร้างความหวังกับเพศตรงข้ามใดๆ ในระยะนี้

You are likely to be daydreaming and allowing time to pass without doing anything useful. You financial expense documents will be destroyed or loss and the people you work with will not do their jobs. You will be threatened for no reason whatsoever. You should not get your hopes up for someone of the opposite sex during this time.

[Do I understand บริวาร correctly in this context?]

There is also a TV (Channel 3) show on Sunday lunchtimes which is a celebrity horoscope show whose point I have yet to fathom.

ท่านที่ทำงานกับญาติมิตรจะได้ผลตอบแทนอย่างคุ้มค่าในระยะเวลานี้ การเดินทางมีอุปสรรคหรือความยุ่งยาก แม้เดินอยู่ในบ้านก็ต้องระวัง หรือสะดุดของแข็งและหกล้มในที่ลื่น ได้สิ่งที่เป็นหลักทรัพย์

"Work with friends and relatives at this time will bring worthwhile rewards. Travel will have obstacles and difficulties, and you should even take care when walking in the house not to trip over solid objects and fall down where you slipped. You will come into property."

I'm not sure about the falling over bit -- are they really referring to accidents in the home, or being a bit more figurative, I wonder?

Perhaps for horoscopes, บริวาร would be best rendered as 'those around you' or 'someone around you.'

There are more examples in Scorpio:

ท่านช่วยดูแลบริวารที่เจ็บไข้
You will be looking after someone around you who is ill

และเกิดคดีความต่างๆ มีค่าใช้จ่ายสูง
and issues will arise causing considerable expense.

พระเกตุอยู่ในภพการเงิน
Neptune enters your financial sector.

You will donate money for general benefit which will be hard to do and will be unexpected by other people.
จะบริจาคเงินเพื่อประโยชน์ส่วนรวม ซึ่งเป็นสิ่งที่ทำได้ยากและผู้อื่นนึกไม่ถึง

บริวารพวกหนึ่งเดือดร้อนเพราะน้ำ
one group of those around you will be distressed because of ..... water? (Something to do with Neptune, perhaps?)

Rick,

"และเกิดคดีความต่างๆ มีค่าใช้จ่ายสูง
and issues will arise causing considerable expense. "

Does this mean, "You will be involved in various expensive lawsuits"?

Yes, but horoscopes have to have the widest possible interpretation, so it could be a defamation case or a traffic fine and everything in between.

Thank you all for the quick and informative responses!

Also good vocab: บริวาร

I have just realized most of Thai astrology uses the Uranian model and sidereal zodiac (ระบบนิรายนะ). I suppose this reflects the Vedic (Indian) influence...seems Uranian was brought over in the 1960s and has taken off from there.

How confusing for a standard Western Tropical (ระบบสายนะ) equal or placidus house aficionado like myself... :lol:
