August 28, 2014 § Leave a comment

Taoist Astrology by Susan LevittHighlights this week are lucky fire Rat Tuesday, lovely golden Rabbit Friday, and powerful white Dragon Saturday.

Monday Sept 1 is Wood PIG day. Moon sextiles Mercury and squares Venus for enjoyment and conversation. Not the best day for back-to-work focus, or serious plans during Sun opposite Neptune. Moon, Mars, and Saturn in a grouping of planets to slow down and give up the fight. Venus squares Mars; be a lover like Pig, not a fighter. Pig day luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.

Tuesday Sept 2 is Fire RAT day and a first quarter Moon, a waxing half Moon. Half Moons are time for balance. Use smart Fire Rat skills and ingenuity to organize and plan. Moon, Jupiter, and Uranus create a lucky grand trine for new ideas, inspiration, and an element of genius. Rat day luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Wednesday Sept 3 is Fire OX day. Ox days are fortunate in this Phoenix (Rooster) month because Ox and Phoenix along with Snake create a relationship harmony trine. Moon trines Venus for love luck and good connections with women. Sun trines Pluto for new insights and inspiration. But Ox days are for work, and today you might feel Mars conjunct Saturn. Go slow like an Ox and be thorough with details. Ox day luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster). Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.

Thursday Sept 4 is Earth TIGER (yellow Tiger) day. Moon conjuncts Pluto and squares Uranus for intense emotions and possible overwhelm. Fortunately Sun trines Pluto that can bring strength, clarity, and increase Tiger’s passion for justice. The ongoing Pluto square Uranus brings out the rebel in Tiger. Tiger day luck strong for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig. Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Friday Sept 5 is Earth RABBIT (gold Rabbit) day. Moon sextiles Mars bringing strength and energy that Rabbit needs. Can work well alone or in a group. Venus no longer squares Mars so enjoy some romance tonight. Rabbit loves little luxuries. Jupiter trine Uranus can bring sudden opportunities. Rabbit day luck strong for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig. Rabbit hours 5 – 7 am.

Saturday Sept 6 is Metal DRAGON (white Dragon) day. Dragon day is fortunate for relationships in this Phoenix (Rooster) month. Many lucky trines to be social and share feelings: Moon trines Mercury for clear speaking, Sun trines Pluto for insights, and Jupiter trines Uranus for new growth and travel. This strong Dragon day has a feeling of power, and sense of fate in your interactions with others. Dragon day luck strong for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey. Dragon hours 7 – 9 am.

Sunday Sept 7 is Metal SNAKE (white Snake) day. Snake days are fortunate in this Phoenix (Rooster) month because Snake and Phoenix along with Ox create a relationship harmony trine. Moon opposite Venus is a day for art, antiques, and beauty that Snake enjoys. Allow beauty to temper argumentative Moon square Mars, and brooding Moon square Saturn. If feeling upset, it’s better to keep to yourself like observant Metal Snake. Snake day luck strong for Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Phoenix (Rooster). Snake hours 9 -11 am.

Good luck and have a great week,

Susan

New Moon in Virgo Begins Phoenix Month

August 22, 2014 § Leave a comment

Crescent Moon GoddessNEW MOON in VIRGO

Monday August 25, 2014 at 7:13 am PDT is a New Moon in Virgo. Earth sign Virgo represents the 6th house of health, healing, work, and service. During this lunar cycle, we can creatively problem solve under the influence of analytical, practical, and smart Virgo.

The Sun and Moon in Virgo are opposite Neptune in Pisces. It’s best to deal with facts not fantasy at this time. Note that Venus squares Mars and Saturn, and that can bring relationships challenges. So try to be patient, not critical with others.

Fortunately Mercury sextiles Mars and Saturn for direct communication to clear the air. Venus trines Uranus for new artistic expression. And Mars continues to conjunct Saturn for us to slow down and be more thorough.

WATER PHOENIX MONTH

This new Moon begins the month of the Water Phoenix (Rooster). Phoenix correlates to the western sign Virgo. Use the energy of sensitive Water Phoenix to seek opportunities for rebirth and new experiences. Today is a Dragon day so perhaps you’ll feel a sense of fate or destiny.

The energy of this New Moon brings new beginnings, especially for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix, Ox, and Snake years. Call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy New Moon,

Susan

Highlights this week are a New Moon on Monday that begins Water Phoenix (Rooster) month, double Horse Wednesday, and double Water Phoenix Saturday!

Mon Aug 25 is a NEW MOON at 7:13 am PDT that begins Water Phoenix (Rooster) month. Sun and Moon are opposite Neptune so better to deal with facts not fantasy under the influence of practical Phoenix. Phoenix correlates to the western sign Virgo. Mars conjuncts Saturn to slow down and be more contemplative. Venus squares Mars and Saturn so don’t be fussy or critical in relationships. Instead, use the energy of Water Phoenix to transform emotions and create healing. Fortunately Mercury sextiles Mars and Saturn for direct communication to clear the air. An Earth DRAGON day so a sense of fate or destiny with others. Dragon day and Phoenix month luck strong for Dragon, Rat, Ox, Snake, Monkey, and Phoenix. Dragon hours 7 – 9 am.

Tues Aug 26 is Earth SNAKE day. Snake day is fortunate in Phoenix (Rooster) month. Moon conjuncts Mercury for a sense of curiosity on Snake day. Moon sextiles Mars and Saturn, and Moon trines Pluto, for breakthroughs and insights that Snake loves. Good Mercury aspects help communicate well during Venus square Mars and Saturn that can be trying in relationships. Uranus trines bring new ideas so shed skins of the past. Snake day luck strong for Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Phoenix (Rooster). Snake hours 9 -11 am.

Wed Aug 27 is double HORSE: Metal Horse day in this Wood Horse year. Sun opposite Neptune so not a day for decisions or serious work. Plus work is not Horse’s strong point. Take a mid-week break and let loose, or as loose as you can. Venus squares Mars and Saturn can complicate relationships; best to avoid deep topics. Enjoy the outdoors instead. Sun trine Pluto brings new energy. Double Horse day luck strong for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog. Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Thurs Aug 28 is Metal SHEEP day. Moon sextiles Jupiter to enjoy the company of others, friends both old and new. Sheep is a natural diplomat. Smooth over any relationship difficulties from ongoing Venus square Mars and Saturn. Plus Moon square Pluto can bring up deep emotions. But Moon is opposite Uranus, and Uranus trines Venus and Jupiter, for something new, different, and creative. Good day for home improvements and feng shui enhancements. Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.

Fri Aug 29 is Water MONKEY day. You might be feeling Sun opposite Neptune so not clear for decisions. Others could bring confusion or uncertainty. Time to let go, not Monkey-mind analyze events. Fortunately Moon sextile Jupiter continues to enjoy the company of others. Socialize tonight and appreciate special moments. Uranus trine Venus and Jupiter can be inspiring, instead of focusing on Venus squares in relationships. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.

Sat Aug 30 is double Water PHOENIX: Water Phoenix day in Water Phoenix month. Moon trines Neptune for creative imagine and artistic work. Plus Moon sextiles the Sun bringing a balance of spiritual self and the material world. But can sense relationship frustration of Venus square Mars and Saturn. Plus Mars conjunct Saturn is frustrating in itself and we have to slow down — which no one want to do in a Wood Horse year. Use Water Phoenix energy to flow through challenges and take the high road. Double Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.

Sun Aug 31 is Wood DOG day. Wood Dog day is fortunate in Wood Horse year. But Moon conjuncts Mars and Saturn bringing weighty concerns, and Dog is naturally serious. Can be irritated or lose your temper, so stay calm and seek peace. Keep your feelings to yourself today, and be of service to others. Dog is best when serving, and fighting for the underdog. Jupiter trines Uranus so can feel free, not a dog in a cage. Dog day luck strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse. Dog hours 7 – 9 pm.

Good luck and have a great week,

FULL MOON in AQUARIUS

August 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

Cosmic MoonFULL MOON in AQUARIUS

Sunday August 10th 2014 is a Full Moon in Aquarius at 11:09 PDT. Air sign Aquarius is eclectic, unique, and one of a kind. Aquarius rules the 11th house of friends, social connections, and the larger collective of humanity.

Now is an opportune time to reach out to others, network, and expand your circle. Especially since this Full Moon sextiles Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius, try something different. Adding to the good fortune is Sun and Mercury trine Uranus for wide vision, discoveries about self and others, and an element of genius.

MID MONKEY MONTH

Mars conjuncts Saturn so we have to slow down. And Sun, Moon, and Mercury square Saturn for differing viewpoints and various worries. This full Moon marks the middle of Monkey month. Avoid Monkey-mind tail chasing!

Full Moon in Aquarius brings a boost of creativity for everyone, and is most beneficial for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Tiger, Horse, and Dog years.

Happy Full Moon,

Susan
