FULL MOON ECLIPSE in SAGITTARIUS
Friday May 24 is a full Moon eclipse at 9:25 pm PDT. This is the third and final eclipse in a series of eclipses this spring. April 25 was a full Moon eclipse in the passionate Water sign Scorpio to reflect on using power wisely in this Water Snake year. May 9 was a new Moon eclipse in the grounded Earth sign Taurus to focus on health, food, healing, money, and career. The full Moon eclipse on May 24 is in the dynamic Fire sign Sagittarius to discover new freedom, independence, and expand your awareness of the truth.
Under the influence of bold Sagittarius, it’s fortunate to stay active and learn new skills. The Moon trines Uranus for something new and to experience different surroundings. It’s lucky to travel, enjoy a weekend get-away, or plan a vacation — especially before Mercury goes retrograde from June 26 to July 20.
Sagittarius is the truth seeker of the zodiac and rules the 9th house of exploration, travel, and education. This eclipse is time to tell your truth, break old routines that bind you, and separate fact from fantasy. But awareness of what is real or unreal could be challenging at this time because the Sun and Moon square Neptune. You might feel discouraged, confused, or just not clear about life direction. So this eclipse is not the time to make firm decisions that cannot later be changed.
Know that you can always call me at 415.642.8019 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your tarot or astrology reading for life insights during this eclipse cycle. I was born when the Moon was in Sagittarius so I have an understanding of this astrological dynamic.
PLENTY OF GEMINI
The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter are all in Gemini. Mercurial Gemini can be fun and exciting, but it can be easy to get scattered or feel overwhelmed under the influence of fast-paced Gemini. Plus Uranus squares Pluto that can bring the desire to sweep away everything all at once to create a new beginning. So try to take it slow in this Snake month during this Snake year. Wise Snake is in no race, and understands that it takes times to achieve goals and to know others. Events put into place during an eclipse take six months to reach fruition.
Fortunately Mercury and Venus blend with Jupiter the planet of good fortune and abundance. There is an eagerness to learn and incorporate new information, you can more easily communicate to your loved ones how much you appreciate and cherish them, and it’s very fortunate to add feng shui enhancements increase beauty and peace in your home. Luck is strongest for the Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Dragon, Ox, and Snake years.
Happy full Moon,

NEW MOON ECLIPSE
Thursday May 9 is a new Moon eclipse at 5:28 pm PDT in the solid Earth sign Taurus the Bull. This new Moon is time to focus on practical earthly matters: your health, the food you eat, your money and financial security, career and the work you do.
An eclipse is an absence of light when the “shadow” is seen so now there are opportunities to address practical matters that you may have been avoiding. Passions and goals are strong as the Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Mars are all in Taurus for a burst of new energy. Just be realistic about the amount of work involved to achieve a goal or manifest a dream because…
This new Moon eclipse begins the month of the Fire Snake, creating double Snake power: a Snake month in a Snake year! The Fire Snake can be very driven, is intense, spiritual, and born to succeed. Fire Snake is a dynamic worker who is not easily intimidated by anyone or anything. So luck is with you to set and accomplish goals, launch new endeavors, try new methods, and take innovative risks.
But be thorough in this Snake year and slow is better, especially with so many planets in Taurus. Luck is strongest for the Earth signs Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo and for those born in Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Phoenix (Rooster) years, and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.
Happy new Moon,

Highlights this week are a new Moon eclipse on Thursday at 5:28 pm PDT that starts the month of the Fire Snake, a fun and lucky for love Friday night, and a very harmonious Sunday for Mother’s Day.
Monday May 6 is an interesting Water Monkey day (black Monkey) when the Moon blends with Uranus. Moods and opinions change quickly, people feel impulsive, and no one wants to follow routine. Plus Moon squares Pluto adding to the compulsiveness and sense of rebellion. Fortunately communication planet Mercury trines Pluto for an interest in what lies below the surface to arrive at understanding. Luck is strongest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.
Tuesday May 7 Mercury blends with the fiery red planet Mars so communicate with care. There is intellectual competitiveness and people can be defensive or say mean things especially on this Water Rooster day. So no pecking! Bickering is just not worth it as energy winds down to the new Moon on Thursday. Luck is strongest for Rooster, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Rooster hours 5 pm – 7 pm.
Wednesday May 8 is a solid Wood Dog day for strength of convictions and fair play. Moon sextiles Neptune for increased sensitivity to other people’s emotions. It’s comforting to be with friends and loved ones. Moon is opposite Pluto for profound emotions and deep sense of caring. If feeling guilty, jealousy, or other strange emotions it’s fortunate to talk about it with a counselor, healer, or loved one. Luck is strongest for the Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Thursday May 9 is a new Moon eclipse at 5:28 pm PDT that starts the month of the Fire Snake creating double Snake power: a Snake month in a Snake year! Passions and goals are strong as the Moon blends with Sun, Mercury, and Mars for a burst of new energy. Moon trines Pluto for intensity of emotions, and encounters are intimate not superficial. Today is a Wood Pig day but pacifist Pig’s energy is overwhelmed by the power of focused Snake. Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Rooster and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.
Fri May 10 is an engaging Fire Rat day when Moon blends with love planet Venus. Good to get out and socialize, people feel cheerful, it’s a great time for a party, and the intensity of yesterday’s eclipse is much lighter. Love relationships are lucky, and if single a new love can be discovered. Today is also fortunate for feng shui improvements that add beauty to your home. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey, and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.
Sat May 11 is a Fire Ox day that’s best for structure and stability, but Moon sextiles Uranus bringing the desire for something unique and different. Sun blends with Mercury for interesting conversations and opportunities to communicate what’s on your mind, but Moon squares Neptune so emotions are not clear and it’s easy to get lost in daydreams. Lighten up and try not to sign contracts or make binding commitments that cannot later be changed. Luck is strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Rooster and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Sun May 12 is strong Earth Tiger day on Mother’s Day. Fortunately Moon blends with Jupiter for all good things! People are more generous, feel uplifted, and have a sense that everything is fine. Good for spiritual insights and compassion. No one is easily angered even on a Tiger day because the Earth Tiger (yellow Tiger, or golden Tiger) is the most grounded and stable of all Tigers. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.
Have a great week!

Sometimes a tarot reader, or someone who is learning tarot, tells me that they do not feel clear enough to pick their own tarot cards. Either they are too attached to the outcome and are nervous about it, or they fear that they’ll keep picking cards until they get the answer they want. In these instances, your animal companion can help you! If you wish to include your pet in your tarot process, willing animals can be trained or gently persuaded to select tarot cards.
Shuffle your cards, cut, and lay out the cards in a half-moon shape. Then ask your pet cat, dog, bird, serpent, or other domesticated animal to place their paw, beak, or body part on a card. Cats tend to be very acute. Some animals enjoy the divination process and seek tarot selection opportunities. My pet parrot Jamilla died of old age, but when she was alive she often selected tarot cards. She tapped her little beak on the back of a card to indicate her selection. She regularly selected 9 Cups.
Good luck in using your animal companions to assist you with divination. You just might find that your pet has a talent for it!
