2021 Virgo Full Moon in Ox Year

February 24, 2021 § 1 Comment

February 27 2021 at 12:17 am PST is a full Moon in Virgo. Earth sign Virgo rules the 6th house of health, work, and service. Luck is with you to focus on details and get organized now that Ox year has begun. This is also an opportune time to be realistic and complete those tasks you’ve been working on.

The Virgo full Moon is opposite the Sun and Venus in Pisces. If people feel emotional, especially with Covid fatigue, good relationships stay strong but weak relationships could fall by the wayside. Whatever is lost is a clearing for Ox year to not carry the burdens of others.

Springtime of this Ox year is fortunate because Mercury is no longer retrograde as of February 20, and there will be no retrograde planets until  April 27. During these no-retrograde two months, it’s much easier for you to make steady progress or open a new door. Mercury exalted in Aquarius conjuncts Jupiter and Saturn for specificity in long-range planning. Mars in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn for maintaining sustained effort. However, it is better to focus on one or two activities. Ox is not good at juggling multiple projects.

Contact me for your feng shui consultation for Ox year. This Virgo full Moon trines Uranus bringing vital energy to make change in your domestic environment. There is a desire for more art and beauty as the Sun conjuncts Venus. This full Moon, and as the Moon wanes down, is ideal to edit a collection or decide what to keep, sell, or donate.

Luck is strongest for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Ox, Dragon, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years. It’s not too late to schedule your Ox year forecast. I can start your astrology forecast on any date of the year.

Happy full Moon,

What the 2021 Year of the Ox Has In Store for You

By Samantha Vincenty

Feb 5, 2021

February 12, 2021 is the Lunar New Year, per the lunisolar calendars traditional in many Asian countries including China, Vietnam, and South Korea. The holiday of new beginnings, reunion dinners with loved ones, and Spring Festival celebrations in China also introduces the Year of the Metal Ox, marking the end of the Year of the Metal Rat. Those with an interest in Chinese zodiac animals may already know that some 2020 Rat predictions were just as unfortunate as the year turned out to be, and now, a new question looms: Will this Year of the Ox be lucky?

That can depend on a variety of individual factors. The compatibility of your personality with the traits of the Ox is affected by your own zodiac animal, according to Susan Levitt, professional astrologer, feng shui consultant, and author of Taoist Astrology. 2021 is also impacted by the fact that it’s a metal year (metal is one of the five elements of the Chinese zodiac; more on this later). Also, you may want to nail down what “lucky” means to you.

“What is the goal, what are you trying to do?” Levitt says. “And, does the energy of the Ox match with your personality or your energy?”RELATED STORIES

11 Lunar New Year Foods and What They Mean

Still, the Year of the Ox will impact us all in a few generally similar ways, according to both Levitt and Pocket Chinese Almanac authors and translators Joanna C. Lee and Ken Smith. Here’s what they have to say about the meaning of the Year of the Ox, and a few predictions for what it has in store.

Keep your head down in the Year of the Ox.

While Levitt is an astrologer and student of feng shui, Lee and Smith get their almanac predictions from a Hong Kong-based geomancer named Warwick Wong. Long practiced in his family, Wong’s style of Chinese geomancy is a form of divination, or forecasting the future, that observes astronomical movements and what Smith describes as “other atmospheric conditions.” Wong then interprets how these impact our lives down on earth, and his daily readings offer what’s lucky or unlucky to undertake (February 12 will be good for engagements or starting a business, but bad for rituals and paying out money). But Wong also gives Lee and Smith a general trajectory for what a given year will be like.

Basically, Lee says, “it’s a holding pattern.” Keep calm and carry on as best you can in 2021, but hold off on major moves if you’re able. And in a note worth taking whether you believe in the zodiac or not, Lee relays that Wong says to “try not to be obsessive about following the news, because so much information is in the air.” Essentially, preserve your energy and your spirit.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous lunar New Year of the Ox,

Susan

NEW MOON in AQUARIUS begins CHINESE NEW YEAR of the OX

February 7, 2021 § Leave a comment

February 11 2021 is a new Moon in Aquarius at 11:06 am PST that begins Metal Tiger month and Metal Ox year. The date is February 12 in China because Beijing is 16 hours head of the time zone here in San Francisco. That is why if you research the lunar new year date online, it’s listed as Feb 12. Chinese New Year is the second new Moon after Winter Solstice.

In early agricultural communities, people often went for days without eating and feared starvation. To aid suffering humans, the gods and goddesses removed Ox from heaven, where she was a star, and sent her to earth. The divine ones instructed Ox to tell people that with her help they would avoid starvation and would eat every three days.

But Ox misunderstood, and told humanity that they would eat three times a day! Ox had to make her words true, so that is why Ox labors for humans and endures many burdens without complaint. Therefore, the year of the Ox is time for honesty, hard work, duty, and discipline. Like Ox plowing the field, success is attained through diligent work and conscientious effort. 

The Ox is a powerful animal who has the ability to transform the negative challenges of Rat year 2020 into positive outcomes in 2021. Ox can save us from disaster, and help reconstruct because Ox is a builder.

So Ox year is the time to follow through and bring to completion what was started in Rat year. Establish a routine, use tried-and-true methods, and stay with a structure that can bring a bountiful harvest in autumn. Daring new concepts will not be well received. Save them for the following Tiger year 2022.

The Element Metal

2021 is a Metal year of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. In feng shui, the Metal environment is clean, pristine, pared down, and shiny like metal. So begin by cleaning your home, reduce clutter, and maintain tidiness all year round. The main focus is on the bedroom as hard-working Oxen do best after peaceful sleep.

The most favorable season in a Metal year is autumn. In Chinese medicine, Metal rules the lungs so take care of your lungs this year. If you smoke, this Metal Ox year is an ideal time to quit smoking. And the healing vaccine for Covid will be administered in an organized manner  during Ox year, aiding economic and health recovery. The big change for Covid will be at the new Moon in Leo on August 8 that begins Fire Monkey lunar month. In the meantime, maintain Covid precautions.

Your fortune in Metal Ox Year

Rat
Birth years of the Rat: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020.
Next year of the Rat is 2032.

Rat is in a very good position in the year of the Ox. Expect fewer hardships because Rat is Ox’s good friend and ally. Ox’s influence requires a larger contribution at work. Therefore, Rat benefits by putting forth increased effort to follow through because Ox delivers, and expects dedicated, consistent labor from others. The element Metal is firm and resolute, not flexible, so don’t seek clever Rat shortcuts. Strive to not overextend or take on too many commitments. Your luckiest month is April, and winter is your best season. The element Metal empowers Metal Rat born in 1960, and Water Rat born in 1972.

Ox (Buffalo)
Birth years of the Ox: 1913, 1925, 1937,1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021.
Next year of the Ox is 2033.

Ox year begins a new twelve year life cycle for you. Everyone benefits by increasing their efforts this year, but for Ox it can be a very positive and productive year when your hard work is finally rewarded. You can reap the benefits of the efforts you’ve made over time. You’ve paid dues, and are ready to enjoy the hard-won results. Be open to receiving help and advice from others, not just going it alone as is your pattern. This is also an excellent year for marriage, having a child, or purchasing a new home. The element Metal empowers Metal Ox born in 1961, and Water Ox born in 1973.

Tiger
Birth years of the Tiger: 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010.
Next year of the Tiger is 2022.

Free-spirited and adventurous Tiger does best to adjust to the steady work ethics of the Ox. Ox year dynamics require Tiger to work hard and remain focused to successfully complete projects. You can build a solid foundation this year. Tigers who control their temper and aren’t too rebellious or independent should experience a good year. Rewards arrive in 2022 your Tiger year when you start a new life cycle. So keep your emotions in check, especially Wood Tiger born in 1974. The element Metal empowers Metal Tiger born in 2010 or 1950, and Water Tiger born in 1962.

Rabbit (Hare)
Birth years of the Rabbit: 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011.
Next year of the Rabbit is 2023.

Rabbit has a much better year after the challenges of the previous Rat year. Being more determined, aggressive, and persistent (all Ox characteristics) helps you succeed. Although at times Rabbit could feel challenged during an Ox year due to unrealistic work standards and expectations from others. So take care of yourself emotionally, be patient, and do not become frustrated if rewards are delayed or projects take more time than anticipated. It’s best to avoid making quick decisions because Ox year is not an auspicious time for big change. Spring is your best season. The element Metal empowers Metal Rabbit born in 2011 or 1951, and Water Rabbit born in 1963.

Dragon
Birth years of the Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012.
Next year of the Dragon is 2024.

Ox year is your time to follow through with activities initiated in Rat year 2020. Dragon can be a high-flying dreamer, whereas Ox is realistic and hard working. So under Ox’s influence this year, Dragon might have to tone it down and be more conservative, or use different strategies and tactics. Appearances and great ideas are not what Ox values. Instead, if you create a solid structure or a routine to maintain stability, then anticipate a year of steady progress. It’s fortunate to work with others this year, not your usual independent self. The problems of those surrounding you need not effect you. So stay focused, grounded, and do not meddle. April, August, and December are your luckiest months. The element Metal empowers Metal Dragon born in 2000 or 1940, and Water Dragon born in 1952.

Snake
Birth years of the Snake: 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013.
Next year of the Snake is 2025.

Anticipate a fortunate and successful year because Snake is in a harmony trine with Ox and Phoenix (Rooster). There will be opportunities for advancement, career goals can be attained, and relationships deepen. Snake’s work will be recognized and rewarded. Others admire your wisdom, insights, and resourcefulness. Just don’t allow Ox’s stubborn influence to make you unreasonable or too demanding. Be mindful of how you approach difficult subjects or manage certain relationships. Intelligent compromise benefits everyone. The element Metal empowers Metal Snake born in 2001 or 1941, and Water Snake born in 1953.

Horse
Birth years of the Horse: 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014.
Next year of the Horse is 2026.

Rat year 2020 was a difficult year, especially for Horse because Rat is opposite Horse in the Chinese zodiac. Fortunately, Ox year can be less challenging. Expect easier and smoother circumstances, although Ox’s influence demands hard work, and work is not Horse’s favorite activity. Horse can succeed by maintaining more control in personal interactions, but romance could still be problematic so stay steady. Adapt to Ox traits of discipline and perseverance to succeed. Next year Tiger 2022 is your lucky time to race off to greener pastures or gallop after new opportunities, but not now. Your best season is summer. The element Metal empowers Metal Horse born in 1990, and Water Horse born in 2002 or 1942.

Sheep (Goat, Ram)
Birth years of the Sheep: 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015.
Next year of the Sheep is 2027.

Sheep is opposite of Ox in the Chinese zodiac. Therefore, Ox year can be challenging for us Sheep. It’s not an auspicious time to create new opportunities. Instead, stay organized, reduce clutter, and maintain focus. Under the influence of Ox, at times Sheep must perform repetitive or mundane tasks. Just don’t allow finances or morale to be low, and avoid opportunities to overspend because “Sheep eat paper.” Others may not be available to offer emotional support, so we do best by being more resourceful and self reliant. Summer is our luckiest season; winter is not. The element Metal empowers Metal Sheep born in 1991, and Water Sheep born in 2003 or 1943.

Monkey
Birth years of the Monkey: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
Next year of the Monkey is 2028.

Ox year is a time of work and discipline, but neither are Monkey’s favored activities. Monkey is more devoted to play and creativity. Therefore, during Ox year there can be difficulties that force Monkey to restrain ambitions. Monkey can avoid Ox’s demand for hard work by teaming up with others to be their messenger or liaison. Monkey’s wit and winning personality does bring luck in avoiding tasks that Monkey does not want to do. But this is a good year for Monkeys to establish a solid foundation so it serves you to adapt Ox’s methods. The element Metal empowers Metal Monkey born in 1980, and Water Monkey born in 1992 or 1932.

Phoenix (Rooster, Chicken)
Birth years of the Phoenix: 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017.
Next year of the Phoenix is 2029.

Ox year can be very fortunate and favorable for you because Ox’s values closely align with yours. Ox and Phoenix are highly compatible because they are both diligent and determined, and appreciate hard work and a job well done. Ox year energy offers the stability, faithfulness, and sincerity that Phoenix enjoys. Projects come together, and goals are attained. If you promote yourself, you will be respected and highly regarded. This is your year for success when you can recover from any previous Rat year challenges. All months are lucky. The element Metal empowers Metal Phoenix born in 1981, and Water Phoenix born in 1993 or 1933.

Dog
Birth years of the Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018.
Next year of the Dog is 2030.

Ox’s influence brings conservative politics and restraints. Dog fights for the underdog, so Dog’s revolutionary ideas and altruistic concepts might not be in favor this year. Ox prefers to stay the steady course, whereas Dog enjoys trying new methods. So there could be some minor problems or roadblocks due to differences in perspective. But Dog perseveres, is responsible, and does hard work that can be rewarded in an Ox year. Dog’s Ox year contribution lays a foundation for success in your lucky year Tiger 2022. The element Metal empowers Metal Dog born in 1970, and Water Dog born in 1982.

Pig (Boar)
Birth years of the Pig: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019.
Next year of the Pig is 2031.

Ox year can be a harmonious year when Pig’s efforts are appreciated. There are opportunities for career advancement and good fortune in relationships, although Pig must comply with Ox’s strong work ethic and follow rules. But Pig is naturally realistic and goal oriented, and that fits well with Ox’s pragmatism. Others rely on you this year when your generosity and emotional support will be greatly appreciated. Remain diligent in your efforts, and anticipate an abundant harvest in autumn your lucky season. It’s also a good year for education and learning new methods. The element Metal empowers Metal Pig born in 1971, and Water Pig born in 1983.

Happy new Moon and happy lunar New Year,

Susan

2021 Leo Full Moon ends Rat Year

January 26, 2021 § Leave a comment

FULL MOON in LEO

January 28 2021 at 11:16 am PST is a full Moon in Leo. Dynamic Fire sign Leo rules the 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. This full Moon is the final full Moon in Rat year. The next new Moon begins the year of the Metal Ox on February 11. (February 12 in China.) There is much activity during these two weeks before Ox year!

The full Moon is opposite the Sun, Jupiter, and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius. These oppositions can indicate opposing viewpoints about reality, undisciplined behavior, or a sense of alienation. Fortunately, the Sun conjunct Jupiter is lucky in general, bringing generosity of spirit, and is good for expansion into new areas of study.

The full Moon and Sun square Mars and Uranus in Taurus. It’s easier to become emotional or act impulsively. Leo loves drama, so use any disruptions to create new patterns and life habits. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast for insights, planning, and decision making as we begin year of the Ox.

MERCURY RETROGRADE

On January 30, communication planet Mercury goes retrograde for three weeks until February 20. Mercury will be retrograde in Air sign Aquarius. Mercury is exalted in Aquarius, the best sign for Mercury. Therefore, this is an ideal time to complete projects and follow up on communication. Under the influence of Aquarius, keep focus on technology.

The excitement and passion of this Leo full Moon and as the full Moon wanes will be felt by everyone, especially Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Rat, Monkey, and Dragon years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

January 12 2021 at 9:00 pm PST is a new Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn rules the 10th house of career and finance, making this a good time to get centered with practical matters. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all together in a planetary stellium. A stellium is a grouping of planets, and this one is in Capricorn and Aquarius bringing focus, innovation, and creative solutions.

Energy is high during this new Moon as Mars conjuncts Uranus in Taurus until February 2. Rash behavior, desire for freedom, and to assert one’s individuality can be done in a constructive way. So this lunar cycle is an auspicious time to innovate and begin a new project that will take much energy.

This new Moon begins Earth Ox lunar month, the kind and empathetic gold Ox. Extreme good fortune blesses the gold Ox. An Ox month is fortunate during a Rat year because Ox and Rat are strong allies. Ox energy brings stability and structure. Ox may be slow but is determined, and what is built will last.

This gold Ox lunar month is excellent for career prospects, and to organize and regroup. Prepare for the next new Moon on February 11 that begins Metal Ox year 2021.

2020 Cancer Full Moon in Double Rat Month

December 28, 2020 § Leave a comment

December 29 2020 at 7:28 pm PST is a full Moon in Cancer. Water sign Cancer rules the 4th house of home, foundation, and roots. There is a focus on family matters, and time to nestle in during the cold of winter. This full Moon marks the peak of Rat month in Rat year, so there could also be a focus on family finances and legacies. 

The full Moon is opposite the Sun and Mercury in Earth sign Capricorn. Your heart could say one thing while your head tells you another. Because this full Moon marks the peak of double Rat month, clarity and logic will take precedence over emotions. There could be communication challenges, so be aware not to become judgmental. Try to keep a cool head while still respecting the feelings and experiences of others.

Mars in Aries squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. There could be a tendency to extend past your resources, and ambition could be aroused to quickly get ahead. But it’s better to proceed slowly and cautiously. Work in small digestible bites under the influence of the Rat. Plus Jupiter and Saturn square Uranus. People might want freedom and independence, but Rat works collectively.

So this full Moon, and as the Moon wanes down, is not the time for serious discussions that can lead to conflict. Instead, cultivate the caring sensitivity of Cancer, and enjoy the good feelings of the emotional bonds that are of value to you. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast for 2021, or feng shui consultation for your home.

Emotions and sensitivity are strong for everyone, and are felt most deeply by Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and those born in Rabbit, Horse, Sheep, and Pig years.

Happy full Moon,

2020 NEW MOON ECLIPSE begins DOUBLE RAT MONTH

December 11, 2020 § Leave a comment

2020 NEW MOON ECLIPSE in SAGITTARIUS

December 14 2020 at 8:17 am PST is new Moon eclipse in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of education, philosophy, and the higher mind. Under the influence of Sagittarius, focus is on new learning, establishing values, and truth telling during this lunar month.

The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in Sagittarius resulting in some very frank, direct, conversations. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury trine Mars in Aries bringing energy to not back down from a challenge. These transits are favorable for decisive action, negotiations, and asserting your position. 

The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury square Neptune in Pisces. There can be a feeling of disorientation, or allowing someone to talk you into doing something that you really don’t want to do. So avoid speculative or risky ventures. This is not the best transit for buying or selling in business, especially during an eclipse. 

Plus this new Moon is a total solar eclipse at 8:15 am PST. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, meaning that what is hidden can come to the surface. If seeking clarity about what is obscure in your life, contact me for your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation.

DOUBLE RAT MONTH

This new Moon begins Earth Rat month until January 12, 2021. Earth Rat month in this Metal Rat year is a double Rat month. In Chinese medicine, Earth is the “mother” of Metal because metal ore is extracted from the earth. Therefore, Earth Rat and Metal Rat are very fortunate together. Anticipate a successful and prosperous time that can continue into the following Earth Ox month in January.

Rat lunar month is time to focus on the details of practical matters. Rats are logical and rarely are swayed by emotions, particularly in financial dealings. This eclipsed double Rat lunar month is an ideal time to find out all the facts and figures. Accomplish tasks in small digestible bites, like a mouse, to not become overwhelmed.

WINTER SOLSTICE the Great Conjunction

December 21 2020 at 2:02 am PST is Winter Solstice that marks the shortest day and the longest night in the northern hemisphere. Winter Solstice this year is exceptional because there will an exact conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in 0 degrees Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius brings focus on communication, information, and technology. It’s the sign of all humanity, and the connection between us all. The Age of Aquarius, the Global Village, has arrived.

Jupiter conjunct Saturn is either a time of patient and sustained growth, or a time of restless to create a new life cycle. Either way, under the influence of Jupiter, events turn out for the best. But note that Saturn transits require discipline and planning.

For most people, it’s best to stay with their current path and continue doing what  they’re doing, but do it in a new and innovative way. For a few rare birds, this conjunction is time to break from the established order to build a completely new life structure such as a new job, new relationship, spiritual path, and different world view.

Winter Solstice occurs during the waxing half Moon in Aries at 3:41 pm PST. Half Moons are time for emotional balance. Fire sign Aries brings dynamic energy to take action. Just stay balanced and don’t go overboard.

Activities and experiences this lunar month are powerful for everyone, and are most transformative for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Dragon, Snake, and Monkey years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

2020 FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE in GEMINI

November 28, 2020 § 1 Comment

November 30 2020 at 1:30 am PST is a full Moon in Gemini, and a lunar eclipse at 1:43 am PST. Air sign Gemini rules the 3rd house of communication, ideas, and relatives. Time to express your ideas and communicate your feelings during this full Moon, and during the next two weeks as the full Moon wanes. Topics that were hidden, or it was just not the right time to speak about them, can come to light during this eclipse.

Mercury in perceptive Water sign Scorpio sextiles Jupiter and Saturn in earthy Capricorn. This is favorable for overall planning with clarity of purpose. Timing is good to make practical changes, and to communicate about important matters. People are more tolerant of different viewpoints and have more intellectual curiosity. These Mercury sextiles are also very beneficial for business.

Venus in Scorpio is opposite Uranus in Taurus. Anticipate unexpected surprises in relationships. Artistic creativity is heightened to find ways to break from the norm. And enjoy the sensual pleasures of life as this full Moon marks the peak of epicurean Pig month.

The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn continues, emphasizing both financial and political issues. Energy will change on December 21, Winter Solstice, when both Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius brings focus on communication, information, and technology.

Contact me for your tarot reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation to help set goals. Opportunities for clear communication are for all, and are strongest for Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and those born in Tiger, Horse, Dog, and Pig years.

Happy full Moon,

2020 New Moon in Scorpio begins Pig Month

November 11, 2020 § Leave a comment

November 14 2020 at 9:07 pm PST is a new Moon in Scorpio. Water sign Scorpio rules the 8th house of sex, death, and rebirth. This lunar month can be a time of transformation, passion, and forward movement now that Mars in fiery Aries is no longer retrograde as of November 13, and Mercury in Scorpio is no longer retrograde as of November 3.

More good news is the new Moon and Sun in Scorpio are in a fortunate sextile with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. This brings stability, and a strong sense of purpose. There’s increased enthusiasm and optimism to focus on a goal. It’s easier to organize and make overall plans, get things done, and seize opportunities.

Plus the new Moon and Sun trine Neptune in Pisces to be more in touch with your emotions, allowing for increased empathy, understanding, and compassion for others. This is an auspicious time for intuitive consultations so contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast.

This new Moon begins Fire Pig lunar month from November 14 to December 13. Gentle, kind-hearted Pig allows everyone to win. Therefore, Pig lunar month can be a healing time after the antagonism of the previous Fire Dog month. The element Fire brings strength, and makes the usually laid-back Pig more active and engaged in life.

Note that Venus in Libra squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. In the pursuit of life’s pleasures, there could be overeating or overspending, especially in a Pig month. In relationships, there could be emotional intensity when a lighter touch is called for. An unhealthy relationship could end, whereas healthy relationships become deeper and more profound.

Rebirth and understanding are for all, and are most powerful for Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer and those born in Pig, Rabbit, Sheep, and Tiger years.

I was interviewed by Reader’s Digest about the upcoming 2021 Metal Ox year. Read interview here.

Happy new Moon,
