July 31, 2015 at 3:43 am PT is a full Moon in Aquarius, a blue Moon because it’s the second full Moon this month. But no need to be blue! The Moon is full in the inventive and freedom-loving Air sign Aquarius. Aquarians are innovative, independent, and champion social change.
This blue Moon weekend is the peak of Sheep month in Sheep year. Under the influence of diplomatic Sheep, it’s easier to network and expand your circle. But Aquarians have strong opinions, and with the blue Moon opposite the Sun and Mercury in Leo, there will be many opinions, novel ideas, and much to discuss.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change, so be open to experiment and to vary your routine. Uranus went retrograde on July 16, and goes direct on December 25, so there’s time to resolve old problems, heal resentment, and learn from past patterns or mistakes. Sometimes a change of scenery does the trick for a new vision. There can be sudden breakthroughs of perception, especially for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Tiger, Horse, and Dog years.
Plus love planet Venus retrogrades back into Leo until mid October, so time to express yourself. Leo loves drama and romance. Important relationships become stronger, although weaker ones may fall by the wayside.

Love planet Venus retrogrades back into LEO until mid October so time to express yourself. Leo loves some drama and romance. OK to roar!
Retrograde means that from earth, it appears that a planet is going backwards in its orbit around the sun. The planet is not really going backwards, but the planets orbit the sun at different speeds so it looks like the planet is going backwards.
For example, if you were on a train and the train next to you seems to be going backwards or its wheels appear to be spinning backwards, it’s because the trains are going at different speeds.

July 15, 2015 at 6:24 pm PDT is a new Moon in Cancer. Cancer rules the 4th house, and is a nurturing Water sign of home and family. This lunar month offers opportunities to focus on your home, clear out clutter, and create beauty in your environment.
The Sun, new Moon, Mercury, and Mars all in Cancer bring increased empathy. People tend to communicate through feelings and emotions so the gentle approach brings success. Fortunately, Sun and new Moon in late Cancer trine Saturn in late Scorpio that brings constructive energy to accomplish your goals. Even though the Sun and new Moon square Uranus for restless or doubt, trines to Saturn bring patience and stability.
More lucky trines are Mercury and Mars in early Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces. Mystical and spiritual subjects are of interest. Love, poetry, and romance are desired. People are more altruistic with a sincere concern for the welfare of others. But Mercury and Mars are opposite Pluto in Capricorn. There might be a play for power by those who mistake kindness for weakness.
Venus and Jupiter are still conjunct in Leo for both relationship luck and financial luck. But Venus and Jupiter square Saturn for necessary, realistic assessment of love and money. Jupiter continues to trine Uranus for general good fortune and sudden opportunities.
DOUBLE SHEEP MONTH
This new Moon begins the month of the Water Sheep in Wood Sheep year. This is auspicious because Water is the mother of Wood, meaning Water helps Wood (plants) to grown. Sheep are artistic souls who cherish beauty and value the finer things in life; under the influence of double Sheep, life can be more beautiful and fulfilling.
This new Moon brings luck for all, creativity can flow, and is easiest for Water signs Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio and those born in Sheep, Pig, Rabbit, and Horse years. Call me at 415.642.8019 or email email@example.com
for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for double Sheep month.

JULY 1st 2015 at 7:20 pm PDT is a full Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn is practical and realistic, providing the perfect energy to slow down and relax if you’re feeling a bit scattered during this fast-paced Horse month.
Astrologically speaking, there’s much good news! Very fortunate is that love planet Venus continues to conjunct Jupiter in Leo to bring out the best in relationships. There is a heightened appreciation of love and beauty. Even casual social contacts lead to success. Venus and Jupiter both trine Uranus in Aries to attract new friends, and be receptive to new ideas.
Also fortunate is the Sun in Cancer continues to conjunct Mars that adds strength to your convictions, and physical strength to overcome illness. Sun and Mars both trine spiritual planet Neptune in Pisces to follow your instincts and Horse-month hunches. People are more idealistic and sensitive, with concern for the welfare of others.
Plus communication planet Mercury creates three lucky star sextiles to Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus. This is great for travel and scenic trips, you can make solid plans, and prepare your ideas to talk your way to success!
But note that the Full moon conjuncts Pluto, and Sun is opposite Pluto, bringing powerful depth of expression for art, sex, and all passions that stir your soul. Keep Plutonian creative energy strong and active as Horse month wanes. There will be time for reflection during double Sheep month that begins July 15; Water Sheep month in Wood Sheep year. More double Sheep in my next lunar update.

June 16, 2015 at 7:05 am PDT is a new Moon in Air sign Gemini. A new Moon is time to take action, especially under the influence of “can do” Gemini. The new Moon, Sun, and Mars are conjunct in Gemini. Mars in the mix adds strength and passion. This lunar month is good for adventure, social gatherings, and travel now that Mercury is no longer retrograde since June 11. Also good to network, make connections, and share ideas with close friends and family members.
There’s luck in love with Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo for warm feelings, and highlights romance. Venus is in lusty Leo until October, just perfect for a sensual Sheep year summer. Jupiter trining Uranus could inspire a quest for new freedom, you’ll realize it’s easier to grasp new ideas, and the Jupiter trine brings general good luck. Note that Mercury is opposite Saturn, and squares Neptune, so this is not the month for serious soul searching, or to go into details. It’s better to keep it light.
WATER HORSE MONTH
This new Moon begins the month of the Water Horse, the sensitive black Horse. Horse’s natural abilities and instincts are enhanced by the element Water. Plus Water tempers some of Horse’s natural Fire creating more reflective, empathetic, and intuitive energy. Horse month is fortunate in Sheep year so be on the lookout for opportunities from chance encounters.
Summer Solstice is on June 21, 2015 at 9:38 am PDT. Summer Solstice is the longest day and the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere. On Solstice day, both Venus and Jupiter trine Uranus. New relationships are exciting, and stable partnerships can be refreshed with new activities you do together. Call me at 415.642.8019 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for tarot, astrology, and feng shui guidance this summer.

June 2, 2015 at 9:19 am PT is a full Moon in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius is a free spirit who loves adventure and seeks higher knowledge. The Sagittarius symbol is a half horse/half human archer shooting an arrow of truth to hit the mark. So the remaining two weeks of this lunar cycle are time to get to the heart of the matter by discovering and speaking your truth.
This Sagittarian full Moon trines Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries to create a fortunate grand Fire trine! People are friendly, warm, and supportive. They are generous and sincerely concerned with the welfare of others. There is a heightened interest in the meaning of life, of creating new structures and new ways of doing things. It’s easier to make needed changes in your environment, or make changes in your personal habits. Events from the past can be examined for new understanding and graceful release.
The Sun, Mercury, and Mars are conjunct in Gemini that brings energy, excitement, and a faster pace to life. But rational thought is influenced by emotions, and moods can change quickly. There’s a tendency to be hasty and irritable over small matters so maintain your equilibrium. This planetary conjunction is opposite the full Moon and squares Neptune in Pisces. People can be overwhelmed by demands of daily activities, and wonder if they’re on the right path in life. Under the influence of Neptune, idealism is aroused but concepts are not always practical. Mystical matters are of interest, but there is a need to stay grounded and realistic.
This full Moon marks the peak of Snake month. In Chinese astrology, Snake is a symbol of wisdom. Logical Snake thinks and ponders before taking action. So be like intelligent Snake and envision your outcome. It’s fine to slow down and contemplate during this exciting and fiery full Moon. During this time of opportunity and change, call me at 415.642.8019 or email email@example.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

If you are feeling a bit scattered during this Mercury retrograde in Gemini, a series of 5 healing baths can help you feel better, get grounded, and be more in your body.
At a drug store, purchase a big bag of Epsom salts or a couple of boxes of baking soda (not baking powder). They are inexpensive and available for everyone. In the evening, take a bath in warm water with a half cup or full cup of Epson salts, or a bath of a half cup or full cup of baking soda. Be sure to submerge your head under the water. Stay in the water for as long as you can until the water cools off. You can take all 5 baths with the salt, or all 5 baths with the baking soda, or alternate in any order that you like. But don’t mix the salt with the baking soda.
If you have organic pure essential oils, add a few drops of lavender oil just before you get into the bath. Lavender is a flower of Gemini. Lavandin oil, derived from lavender, is also good. If lavender is too sweet for you, try organic essential oil of grapefruit or tangerine to clear your mind.
Hope you feel better soon.
