In the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, couples take astrologers seriously, especially in the first week of the new year.
While in the West, newly weds wait for a good job or an apartment before having a baby, in this Buddhist kingdom where all houses hoist prayer flags, a senior faculty from the School of Astrology in Capital Thimphu predicts if a year is good to have children – and couples listen.
The Iron Male Tiger Year, which began on February 14, coinciding the Valentine’s Day, is an auspicious year to have babies, Astrologer Lopoen Singay Dorji has said.
Children born in this year will be “magnetic, passionate and grand,” according to the Bhutan Observer weekly published today.
So couples, get, set, go! And those interested to come to Bhutan and want to have a son in the Tiger year, you should visit the centuries old
monastery of the Divine Madman
where barren couples are blessed with a giant wooden phallus.
Couples, get, set, go!
