Healing Baths during Mercury Retrograde

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.

Good luck,

Susan

NEW MOON IN TAURUS BEGINS SNAKE MONTH

May 14, 2015 § 2 Comments

Tapestry TaurusNEW MOON IN TAURUS

May 17, 2015 at 9:13 pm is a new Moon in Taurus. The new Moon and Sun are both in Taurus, a sensual Earth sign ruled by Venus, planet of love, art, and beauty. Taurean Moon and Sun are conjunct Mercury and Mars in early degrees of Gemini. This brings intellectual stimulation, new ideas, inspired creativity, and interesting conversations. But Sun, Moon, and Mars are opposite Saturn to pace yourself and be thorough. Plus Mercury and Mars square Neptune to think before acting on emotions.

MERCURY RETROGRADE

The ability for introspective thought and wise decision making is helped by Mercury retrograde from May 18 until June 11. Mercury is comfortable in rulership sign Gemini so you can cover much ground. Use these three weeks to get organized in preparation for the next new Moon on June 16 that begins Horse month, a time for action. Call me at 415.642.8019 or reply to this email to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for clarity about life direction.

METAL SNAKE MONTH

This new Moon in Taurus begins the month of the Metal Snake. The Snake lunar cycle is time to shed skins of the past, recycle, replace, and clean out the old. In feng shui, the Metal environment is clean, pristine, and highly functional. Now is the time for a transformational spring cleaning! Snake and Sheep (and Rabbit) are the artists of the Chinese zodiac making this Snake month in Sheep year ideal to beautify your environment. Fortunately, Venus in Cancer trines Neptune for enhanced creativity and an artistic eye to appreciate beauty.

Jupiter continues to trine Uranus for sudden luck and good fortune, and Uranus continues to square Pluto for political change on a global scale.

Happy new Moon,

Full Moon in Scorpio 2015

Full Moon Mt. EverestFULL MOON IN SCORPIO

Saturday May 2, 2015 marks the point between spring equinox and summer solstice. And Sunday May 3 at 8:42 pm PT is a full Moon in Scorpio. Water sign Scorpio is powerful and passionate. Plus this full Moon occurs in the middle of strong Dragon month. So life events can seem intensified, with a rush to complete things.

This Scorpio full Moon trines Neptune and Chiron, a minor planet (formerly classified as an asteroid) used in astrology that is symbolic of healing. There is more creative inspiration and sensitivity to the moods of others. Full Moon trine Chiron is an ideal time to explore alternative medicine and different healing modalities. This full Moon is in a harmonious sextile to Pluto, and the Sun in Taurus trines Pluto, for breakthroughs with both emotional
understanding and with your health.

The full Moon and Sun square Jupiter in Leo. These are fortunate squares because Jupiter is involved. They add energy to get ahead and accomplish goals, and emotions are more powerful bringing compassion and benevolence. The challenge is to not overdo or overextend.

Stay aware of communication dynamics because Mercury is opposite Saturn and squares Neptune. It’s best to slow down and be thorough, and get your facts and details organized before Mercury goes retrograde on May 18 for three weeks until June 11. Jupiter continues to trine Uranus for sudden luck and good fortune, and Uranus continues to square Pluto for political change on a global scale.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

NEW MOON in ARIES

April 18, 2015 at 11:57 am PT is a new Moon in Fire sign Aries. Time to take action before Mercury goes retrograde in exactly one month on May 18. This new Moon is also fortunate to plant seeds for new growth and long-range development. Spring and summer are the action seasons of this Wood Sheep year so energy is with you to accomplish your goals.

Many planets are in Fire signs: the new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are all in Aries; Saturn is in Sagittarius; and Jupiter is in Leo. Fire is the element of action and creation, not passive receptivity. Jupiter trines Uranus for new discoveries, adventures, opportunities, and sudden good fortune. Plus courage planet Mars trines power planet Pluto bringing increased ambition, and ability to maintain your efforts. But note that relationship planet Venus squares Neptune and is opposite Saturn so it’s best to work independently because support from others may be lacking.

METAL DRAGON MONTH

You might feel increased power and strength because this new Moon begins the month of the Metal Dragon. The Metal Dragon, or white Dragon, is powerful and intense. There is a sense of karma or fate in even the smallest interactions this month. Mighty Dragon is the most powerful sign of the Chinese zodiac, a strong leader who brings luck, prosperity, and rain.

So use the energy of dynamic Dragon and pioneering Aries to get going this spring. Know you can call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation. Luck is with everyone to take action, and is most fortunate for the Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Monkey, and Rat years.

Happy new Moon,

LIBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE

April 1, 2015 § 8 Comments

dove loveFULL MOON ECLIPSE in LIBRA

April 4, 2015 at 5:05 am PT is a full Moon eclipse in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of partnerships and marriage. Strong relationships will deepen, and weaker ones benefit from bringing to light relationships issues that need to be transformed.

This eclipsed full Moon is opposite the Sun, Mercury and Uranus all in Aries. Subjective full Moon feelings could run counter to a sense of logic. Now might not be best to make decisions that later cannot be changed. Fresh ideas can be inspirational, but perhaps impulsive under the influence of fiery Aries.

Fortunately, Jupiter in Leo trines this Sun, Mercury, and Uranus conjunction. There are opportunities to restore your health, create a new personal style of communicating, and develop more empathy. But Pluto in Capricorn squares the Sun, full Moon, and Uranus bringing a play for power. Self control brings success because past behaviors won’t work. If you’re feeling under pressure, take care of yourself and avoid direct confrontations.

Use these final two weeks of Earth Rabbit month to make amends in relationships and beautify your environment. The new Moon on April 18 begins Metal Dragon month, a time for action not negotiation. More about the white Dragon in my next astrology update.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

Hare  Spring FlowersSOLAR ECLIPSE in PISCES

March 20, 2015 at 2:36 am PT is a new Moon eclipse in Pisces. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, so note your dreams, subconscious responses, and unexpected coincidences; what is important will rise to the surface.

Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Neptune are all in Pisces for increased altruism and empathy. Under the influence of sensitive Water sign Pisces, this is an ideal time to contact me at 415.642.8019 or susan@susanlevitt.com and schedule your tarot card reading, Sheep year forecast, or feng shui consultation.

EARTH RABBIT MONTH

This new Moon eclipse begins the month of the Earth Rabbit, the fortunate golden Rabbit. Rabbit is an artistic and gentle soul who craves peace and harmony. We can relax into the slower pace of this Sheep year because Sheep and Rabbit are best friends.

Rabbit correlates to the western sign Pisces, and Sheep correlates to the western sign Cancer, making this lunar month especially lucky for Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and for those born in Rabbit, Sheep, and Pig years.

VENUS in TAURUS

Adding to the beauty of Rabbit month in Sheep year is that Venus, the planet of love, art, music, and beauty, is in Taurus from March 17 through April 11. Venus is exalted in Taurus, the best sign for Venus. Earthy Taurus appreciates fine food, sensual pleasure, and all that is lovely and precious.

SPRING EQUINOX

March 20 is also Spring Equinox at 3:45 pm PT. Spring Equinox, the time of equal day and equal night all over the world, is the balance point between Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice. The Sun enters Fire sign Aries for a fresh start and new beginning this spring. Out with the old and in with the new!

Happy new Moon,

Susan

full Moon owlFULL MOON IN VIRGO

March 5, 2015 at 10:05 am PT is a full Moon in Virgo. Under the influence of intelligent and practical Earth sign Virgo, you can complete what you started, get organized, and pay attention to details. This Virgoan full Moon trines Pluto in Capricorn, and is ideal to structure your finances and spending. Become financially wise and accountable now because money can go fast in a Sheep year. There is an expression, “Sheep eat paper” meaning that Sheep can really spend.

FIRE TRINES

But lighten up and have some fun too! This full Moon is the peak of Chinese New Year celebrations. There will be parades all over the world this weekend. Enjoy the party and express yourself. Venus, Mars, and Uranus are all in fiery Aries, creating a grand Fire trine with Jupiter in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius. Actions bring results, and doors can open.

Fortunate Fire trines continue through the month of March, including Jupiter trine Uranus that lasts until the end of July. You can create a new way of expressing yourself with a new kind of freedom. So follow even the smallest bit of good luck or sudden opportunity.
