November 7 2018 is a new Moon in Scorpio that sets the tone for this lunar month. Water sign Scorpio rules the astrological 8th house of sex, death, and rebirth making Scorpios compassionate and extremely intuitive.

The new Moon and Sun in Scorpio trine Neptune in Water sign Pisces, bringing strong insights and emotional understanding. Creativity is enhanced, and people are more idealistic. The new Moon and Sun sextile Pluto in Earth sign Capricorn for practical development that can further spiritual growth.

This new Moon begins the lunar month of the Water Pig. Pig is a generous soul with a good heart. The element Water adds kindness and empathy. Pig month is a time of peace making when kind actions are rewarded, and people can work together in harmony. Pig is diplomatic, and can be both giving and forgiving, so use Pig’s magnanimous energy this month to build bridges.

Under the influence of fun and optimistic Pig, let the holidays begin! Pig appreciates a good party and all the fine things in life, especially good food. So eat, drink, be merry, and enjoy community. Venus in Libra trines Mars in Aquarius for festive times and luck in love.

Honest Pig can sometimes be naive, so be sure that no one takes advantage of you this month, especially in financial dealings. If feeling stressed, this Water Pig lunar month is ideal to take a healing vacation, relax, and not work so hard. If traveling, note that…


Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde is a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced. But in this Earth Dog year, Mercury retrograde can be a time to follow through, keep your word, and complete projects. Communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks.

November 16 – 30 Mercury is retrograde in Fire sign Sagittarius to move quickly and complete tasks. Use caution to not speak so directly that conflict is created and viewpoints are polarized.

December 1 – 6 Mercury is retrograde in Water sign Scorpio when emotions come to the surface. There can be new intimacy in relationships.

Contact me for your tarot card reading for Pig month, or feng shui consultation to prepare for an abundant Pig year 2019. Luck is strongest for Water signs Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces and those born in Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep years.

Happy new Moon,

2019 Leo Eclipse in Tail of Dog Year

January 18, 2019 § 1 Comment

January 20 2019 is a full Moon eclipse in Leo. This full Moon is a supermoon, meaning it appears very large in the night sky. Fire sign Leo rules the 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Under the influence of lion-hearted Leo, people can be kinder to each other in their everyday interactions, with more empathy and understanding. And time for artistic self expression to find or develop hidden talents and let them shine.
The eclipsed full Moon, the Sun newly in Aquarius, and Mercury all square Uranus. It’s easy to crave excitement that can be liberating. But it’s better to stay focused as this lunar cycle wanes. In two weeks, the new Moon begins the Chinese New Year of the Pig. So use any impulsive Uranian energy to complete tasks.
Fortunately, Venus conjuncts Jupiter that’s good for all types of relationships. It’s easier to bond with loved ones, and new acquaintances can bring opportunities. Surround yourself with art, fine food, and music — the pleasantries of life — to set the mood for Pig year. Contact me for your Earth Pig 2019 astrology forecast for both your Western astrology peak forecast dates and Chinese Four Pillars timing.
Venus and Jupiter trine Mars, adding strength and conviction for new adventures. These aspects are also fortunate for business activities, but avoid risks due to the eclipse. Luck is strongest for Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake years.
Happy full Moon,

2019 Capricorn Eclipse begins Ox Month

January 3, 2019 § Leave a comment


Happy New Year! 2019 starts with two eclipses:
The new Moon on January 5, 2019 is a solar eclipse. The full Moon on January 20 will be a lunar eclipse.

The January 5 eclipse is in Earth sign Capricorn to clear out material things, and release all that we do not need. The January 20 eclipse is in Fire sign Leo to focus on art and self expression, to find or develop hidden talents to let them shine.

On the January 5 eclipse, the Sun, new Moon, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto are all in Capricorn. This brings a serious tone, but makes an ideal lunar cycle to complete practical matters such as health check-ups and work projects. It’s easier to stay focused and keep working.

And make time for some loving! Venus trines Mars, newly in rulership sign Aries, for some romance and luck in relationships. Contact me for your relationship forecast for 2019.


WOOD OX MONTH Jan 5 – Feb 3

This new Moon begins the month of the solid and reliable Ox. The inspirational element Wood adds energy and enthusiasm to the Ox. Luck is strong for those born in Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years, and for the Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo.

This Ox month is the final month of the Dog year. The next new Moon starts the year of the Pig. Join me for my Pig year talk on Sunday January 13 from 2 – 3:30 pm at East West Books, 324 Castro Street in Mt. View CA. Link for Tickets.

2018 Sagittarius New Moon begins Rat Month

WOOD RAT LUNAR MONTH Dec 6 – Jan 5 2019

by Susan Levitt

Dec 6 2018 is a new Moon in Sagittarius. Mutable Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of travel, philosophy, and education. The new Moon, Sun, and Jupiter are all in Sagittarius for new ideas and interesting journeys. Time for a change of scenery, even a short day trip, now that Mercury is no longer retrograde as of this new Moon.

This new Moon begins the month of the Wood Rat. In Chinese astrology, Rat is smart and clever. Rat can plan, structure, and organize. Plus Rat is very social and loves the pack, making this a good lunar month to network, make key connections, and expand your circle.

The element Wood represents growth and development, adding more enthusiasm and energy to daily activities. Rat excels in business so this can be an ideal time for year-end business negotiations, career positioning, and data collection and interpretation to create strategy. Contact me for your yearly astrology forecast for your business plans in 2019.

The new Moon and Sun square Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Mars conjunct Neptune can bring discouragement, or a veil of confusion about ideals and goals. So be thorough before stepping forward with plans. Delusion or fantasy about partnerships will become clear under the influence of this Sagittarian new Moon because independent Sagittarius is known for direct and to-the-point communication.

Four planets are unaspected during this new Moon: Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. For some, it might be difficult to find your center. Should this occur, stay with Rat realism and focus on the details to stay grounded. Contact me for your tarot card reading if facing life choices. Luck is strongest for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey years.

Happy new Moon,

Nov 22 2018 is a full Moon in Gemini. Air sign Gemini brings action, movement, and excitement. And this full Moon is on Thanksgiving! How perfect for a full Moon feast in this Pig month, and to enjoy family and friends.

Also on Nov 22, the Sun enters Fire sign Sagittarius. The Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter are conjunct in Sagittarius for adventure and opportunities for new experiences. There’s enthusiasm and optimism about new ideas for future growth. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, adding to the good fortune. With Mercury retrograde until December 6, be flexible with delays.

Mars, in early degrees of Pisces, squares the full Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter. So not all activities are worth pursuing, and there could be a few false starts. What is most important will naturally come into focus. What is too chaotic can fall by the wayside. Contact me for your tarot card reading to determine the difference.

This Thanksgiving, our hearts are with the many people, animals, and plants affected by the devastating fires here in California. The brave and selfless first responders are heroes to us all. We have so much to be thankful for.

Happy full Moon,
