Taoist Astrology by Susan LevittHighlights this week are Sun conjunct Venus for love, double Wood Dog Thursday, and Friday is the mid-point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice!

Mon Oct 27 is Metal SHEEP day. Sun conjuncts Venus all week for love, art, and beauty! Today Sun and Venus trine Neptune that’s very pleasant, and superb for creative inspiration — especially on artistic Sheep day. Moon trines Jupiter and Uranus to enjoy the company of others, and for something different. But not very good for accomplishments so better to take it easy. Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.

Tues Oct 28 is Water MONKEY day. Moon conjuncts Mars and Pluto that can be intense emotionally. Good for deep analysis, but can be overwhelming. Easy to lose your temper or find fault in your work. Monkey energy can be chaotic so strive to stay centered. Fortunately Neptune has two trines and two sextiles so instincts and hunches are correct. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.

Wed Oct 29 is Water PHOENIX (Rooster) day. Moon squares Mercury and Uranus so easy for miscommunication or misunderstanding. It’s best to review, revise, and organize instead of arguing your point of view. Fortunately Sun conjunct Venus continues to smooth over relationship difficulties. Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.

Thurs Oct 30 is DOUBLE WOOD DOG: Wood DOG day in Wood DOG month. Wood Dog is fortunate in Wood Horse year because Dog and Horse are best friends. Wood represents growth and expansion so luck is with you for accomplishments and new endeavors. Keep in mind that under the influence of no-nonsense Dog, honesty and integrity are most important. Now is the first quarter Moon (waxing Half Moon) so a day for balance. Dog day luck strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse. Dog hours 7 – 9 pm.

Fri Oct 31 is Wood PIG day.Today marks the mid-point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice. Sun continues to conjunct Venus, and Moon opposes Jupiter, so ideal for a party! And Pig loves fun festivities. But Mars conjuncts Pluto that can be disruptive so stay safe and drive carefully. Pig day luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.

Sat Nov 1 is Fire RAT day. Moon conjuncts Neptune, and Sun trines Neptune, for increased empathy and sensitivity. There is more compassion and concern for the welfare of others. Can use Rat day ingenuity to problem solve for the group. But note that Moon squares Saturn so more serious; perhaps some quiet time is helpful. Rat day luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Sun Nov 2 is Fire OX day. Moon trines Sun and Venus for a lovely day! Many fortunate sextiles, including Mercury sextile Jupiter, for good communication and planning. Can see the big picture, and Ox practicality helps. Sun and Venus conjunction continues making this ideal for a party and socializing. Ox day luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster). Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.

Mercury and Harvest Moon Eclipse 2014

October 1, 2014 § Leave a comment

Cosmic MoonMERCURY RETROGRADE

Communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks three times a year. From October 4 to 25, 2014 Mercury is retrograde in Air sign Libra. Relationships are important under the influence of Libra. But Mercury retrograde can be a time of miscommunication, so be mindful when communicating with your loved ones.

FULL MOON ECLIPSE

October 8 is a Lunar Eclipse in Aries at 3:51 am PT. Time for action and achievement under the influence of dynamic, pioneering Fire sign Aries. Enjoy the harmonious grand Fire trine of Moon and Uranus in Aries, Mars in Sagittarius, and Jupiter in mighty Leo. This Fire trine helps create an easier flow of energy, and is superb for all kinds of activities; you can plan with foresight and see the big picture, business transactions are favored, and natural optimism leads to beneficial results. You can grasp new ideas quickly, and fortunate discoveries or inventions happen as if by accident. Don’t worry about Mercury retrograde because plans can be revised at a later time. Plus Sun blends with Venus in partnership sign Libra for the return of romance, and rediscovering your creativity.

But four squares to Pluto so avoid trouble. Actions must have integrity — especially during Dog month. This Full Moon is an eclipse. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen so dishonesty will be exposed, as if sniffed out by a Dog. Seek a balance of freedom and reform. Events that are set in motion during the time of an eclipse come to fruition in six months.

Full Moon energy is powerful for everyone, and is most influential for Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dog, Horse, and Tiger years. Call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy Full Moon,

Susan
