Under the influence of pragmatic, sensible Earth sign Capricorn, it’s best to build on your current foundation while reflecting about work and life direction. Capricorn correlates to the Chinese astrology sign Ox, who is hardworking, dependable, and ethical. Use the enthusiasm of this Wood Horse summer to get the job done. Or perhaps it’s time to change life direction if you don’t want to develop your current work, or if you see that what you are doing will not lead to fulfillment of your goals. Call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your Full Moon consultation.

This Full Moon is opposite generous Jupiter so energy is high. Plus Venus trines Mars for love, romance, and enjoyment in life. Communication planet Mercury enters sentimental Cancer until August 15.

This full Moon is most fortunate for Earth signs Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus and those born in Ox, Phoenix (Rooster), and Snake years.

Happy Full Moon,

Cancer New Moon Begins Metal Sheep Month

June 24, 2014 § Leave a comment


Friday June 27, 2014 at 1:08 am PDT is a new Moon in Cancer. Cancer is a nurturing Water sign. Good fortune arrives with a grand Water trine of new Moon in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces. There is an easier flow of balanced creative imagination, plus increased empathy and sensitivity. You can experience a new understanding of your world and those around you. Time to put your wisdom into practice.


This new Moon starts the month of the Metal Sheep. Sheep are artistic souls who cherish beauty and value the finer things in life. The element Metal exemplifies a clean, uncluttered environment in feng shui. Under the influence of artistic Sheep, you can create a beautiful home environment. Know you can call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com for a feng shui, tarot, and astrology consultation for Sheep month.

The Sun and Moon are opposite Pluto so emotions can be profound. But intense encounters are diffused by the gentle nature of kind Sheep. Sheep month is naturally lucky in a Horse year because Sheep and Horse are highly compatible. Anticipate a pleasant July when the gentle approach brings rewards. Mercury is still retrograde in Gemini until July 1 so lighten up your communications to others. This new Moon brings luck for all and is easiest for Water signs Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio and those born in Sheep, Pig, Rabbit, and Horse years.

Happy new Moon,


The Second Half of Horse Year 2014

June 18, 2014 § Leave a comment

Happy Horse 2014Wood Horse year 2014 is half over. But lucky Horse year continues to bring opportunities to get up and go! There’s still plenty of time to take risks, explore new pathways, and open new doors. Horse year is superb for travel so finally take that adventure!

Freedom is key in Horse year. So if you don’t like the road ahead, you can quickly change direction. You don’t have to follow plans made in Snake year 2013. Like a Horse, suddenly turn and not look back. Improvise the rules because Horse is a free spirit who refuses to be tamed or corralled.

During the first half of Horse year, you found out fast what works and what does not work. If on a strong path, keep up the pace and enjoy the ride. Your good luck will continue throughout this Horse year. If Horse year energy is not to your liking, you can still change. It’s not too late. There’s still plenty of time.

If you prefer to watch the Horse race from the sidelines, comply with your group and don’t complain. Use Horse’s strong energy to be athletic and physical. Life will calm down for you in gentler Sheep year 2015.

In general, Horse year energy slows down after Summer Solstice. (On June 21 in 2014.) But this is an active Wood Horse year so energy remains lively all year long. Wood loves growth and expansion, like a plant seeking light and water. Feel free to contact me at susan@susanlevitt.com or call 415.642.8019 for your mid-Horse year check in!

Rat: Rat and Horse are exact opposites! You think and plan whereas Horse thrives on risk. But fortune is on your side because 2014 is a Wood year. You Rat appreciate the action, growth, and opportunities of go-getter Wood.

Ox: For the second half of Horse year, lighten your load and have some fun! Be social and don’t work so hard. Travel is highlighted so venture out and try something new. Winter is your luckiest time.

Tiger: Horse is your best buddy. So far so good in Horse year. Keep up with all your new friends and social circles! Everyone loves the Tiger now, especially at holiday parties this year.

Rabbit: All of Horse year is lucky for you to open new doors. Just don’t get too serious or rely on firm plans. Instead, enjoy the festive and social aspects of Horse. You can look forward a very fortunate Sheep year 2015.

Dragon: Both you and Horse are very strong, but Horse wins in Horse year. So give up any personal battles. Find allies, and let go of past grudges. Create your own group where you can emerge the leader!

Snake: Your good fortune continues throughout Horse year. The strength and speed of Horse help push you forward. OK to take time to refresh and restore when needed. But don’t hibernate this winter. Be social.

Horse: Stay strong and continue to pursue your goals. Doors open when you follow your Horse instincts. You can create what you want to be free and independent. Travel is highlighted this autumn and winter.

Sheep: Horse and Sheep are highly compatible. Horse year continues to be lively, creative, and successful for you Sheep. And next year Wood Sheep 2015 will be even luckier! If not feeling the luck, lighten up and enjoy in the spirit of fun-loving Horse.

Monkey: Horse year so far brought both good and bad. Chase the good, and quit the bad! Both Horse and Monkey thrive on change, and are easily bored. So OK to change direction at any time, and try new risks. Autumn brings luck for you Monkey.

Phoenix (Rooster): Horse year should be fun and sexy for you. If not, get the party started! You and Horse are very compatible so you can have sudden luck at any time. Opportunities continue for you throughout Horse year.

Dog: Every day can bring luck in this Horse year! Horse is your best friend in the Chinese zodiac so things just work out in your favor. Horse year ends in triumph for you Dog! Just maintain your pace during the coolness of autumn.

Pig: Both Pig and Horse love a good party. Any time is the best time for a celebration. So really enjoy holiday entertaining this year. You are strong and sturdy enough to keep up with all of Horse year energy. And next year Sheep 2015 is even better!

Happy Horse year,
