LEO NEW MOON begins MONKEY MONTH
July 23 2017 is a new Moon in Fire sign Leo. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Mars are all in bold, charismatic Leo, bringing passion and a desire for adventure and creative expression. The next new Moon on August 21 will also be in Leo this year, and that new Moon will be a solar eclipse. Under the influence of Leo, during the next two lunar months there will be many opportunities for new ways to enhance your creativity.
On this new Moon, Mercury trines Uranus and Saturn for dynamic and direct communication. The trine between Mercury and Uranus adds an element of genius and mental excitement, so this lunar month is the time for problem solving and putting your ideas into practice. Mercury trine Saturn keeps inspirational concepts practical and realistic.
Plus Venus trines Jupiter for artistic inspiration, enjoyment of relationships, and appreciation of beauty. The next two lunar months are ideal for parties, entertaining, and to expand your social circle. Venus opposite Saturn keeps affairs and expenses from getting out of hand.
Due to the new Moon, Sun, and Mars square Uranus, it’s easy to jump to conclusions, and be rebellious and impatient with circumstances that limit your freedom. It could be challenging to follow routine, and impulsiveness could lead to accident-prone behavior.
This Uranian restless and independent energy is exacerbated because this new Moon begins Monkey month. Monkey is considered a lucky astrology sign. Monkey is king in Chinese astrology, just as Leo is king in Western astrology. Magical Monkey is a fearless hero who is ingenious, entertaining, and mercurial making this month good to pursue goals and take risks. Under the influence of wily Monkey, anything can happen!
Fortunately, this is the month of the Earth Monkey, the gold Monkey. Earth qualities of honesty, practicality, and loyalty enrich Monkey’s character and bring needed stability.
Opportunities are strongest for Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake years. Contact me for your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation for Monkey month.
Happy new Moon,

FULL MOON in CAPRICORN
July 8 2017 at 9:07 pm PDT is a full Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn rules the 10th house of career, goals, and achievement. Time to focus on material concerns, practical solutions, and to organize finances. The full Moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces, bringing inspiration to do ordinary things in extraordinary ways.
The full Moon conjuncts Pluto that could add a sense of emotional urgency, so use the next two weeks of the waning Moon to let go of old feelings and patterns that do not serve you, like a snake shedding its skin.
The full Moon and Pluto are opposite the Sun and Mars in Cancer, so it’s opportune to take care of both personal and professional life. Use Mars energy to remove any clutter in your home, and clear the way if anything blocks room entrances. Strive for balance of power and mutual respect in relationships.
Mercury in Leo sextiles Venus in Gemini for chatty and pleasant energy, and is a good aspect for travel before the summer Mercury retrograde from August 12 to September 5.
Opportunities for personal transformation are for all. This full Moon energy is felt most strongly by the Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo and those born in Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years.

NEW MOON in CANCER
June 23 2017 is a new Moon in Water sign Cancer. Cancers are highly sensitive and are natural empaths. Cancer rules the 4th house of family, home, and roots. So this lunar month is time to focus on home, security, and ways of nurturing self and others.
The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Mars are all in Cancer for healing communication, setting boundaries, and creating comfortable and peaceful environments. Plus Cancers can be astute about finances, so this lunar month is good to organize your financial affairs.
Mars trines Neptune in Pisces to work collectively, and help others. Venus in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn to strengthen relationship bonds, and artistic work has more emotional impact.
But a cardinal T-square of Mars square Jupiter and opposite Pluto could bring concerns about where to go and what to do. Under the influence of gentle Cancer, it’s better to slow down, take time for yourself, and complete current projects before initiating new endeavors.
MONTH of the SHEEP
This new Moon begins the month of the Fire Sheep in Chinese astrology. The element Fire adds more liveliness and passion to Sheep’s character. Sheep love the arts, so this lunar month is time to appreciate art in all its forms.
Sheep month is also time to tend your health, back down from arguments, and treat weekends or free time as if you were at a spaaa. Luck is strongest for Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and those born in Sheep, Horse, Rabbit, and Pig years.
Contact me for your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation for Sheep month, especially feng shui for your home.

June 9 2017 is a full Moon in Fire sign Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by JUPITER, the planet of good fortune. The full Moon sextiles Jupiter in Libra, plus the Sun in Gemini trines Jupiter making it easier to express and receive kindness, support, and nurturing. There can be increased optimism and inspirational energy to expand your goals and reach new heights, especially during this full Moon peak of dynamic and active Fire Horse month.
Close relationships also experience good fortune as Venus, newly in sensuous Earth sign Taurus, sextiles Mars newly in sensitive Cancer. Relationships are gratifying, there is a balance of personal needs and the needs of others, and perhaps a renewed passion due to the influence of the Fire Horse. This weekend is a good time for social activities, and financial activities are also favored.
The Sun and full Moon square NEPTUNE in Pisces, so temper any tendency to race off like a Horse with blinders, especially concerning finances. If there is a large gap between your ideals and your reality, the full Moon conjuncts Saturn that restricts both Sagittarius’ and Horse’s love of freedom, but is necessary to be realistic and plan. Luck is most powerful for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Horse, Dragon, Phoenix (Rooster), and Monkey years.
