BALINESE ASTROLOGY, pelelintangan, is more associated with numerology and complex calendric systems than astral bodies. Every day has its own significance since it is always a conjunction of the different days of the ten weeks of different length that cycle through the Pawukon calendar. It is the conjunctions of the five-day and seven-day weeks that are used to calculate one’s bintang or start sign. This gives 35 signs in total. Some, it seems, are born to woe.
