October 31 2020 at 7:49 am PDT is a full Moon in Taurus. Earth sign Taurus rules the 2nd house of finances, security, and beauty. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, the best sign for the Moon.
This full Moon is also a blue Moon, the second of two full moons in a single calendar month. And this full Moon occurs on Halloween, the solar point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.
A powerful astrological influence is that the full Moon conjuncts Uranus in Taurus. Uranus aspects can be liberating, with people seeking freedom, not beingheld back or following routine.
However, people can act compulsively with a lack of discipline and little sense of responsibility. So strive to stay grounded and centered during the peak of this combative Fire Dog month.
Mercury in Libra squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn. There can be miscommunication, especially during Mercury retrograde that ends on November 3. Problems of exaggeration and false information are more serious at this time. Be cautious in your speech, slow down for details, and recheck documents.
Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast if feeling overwhelmed by the full Moon energy.
Strength and empowerment are for all, and are most profound for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Phoenix (Rooster), Ox, and Dog years.
I was interviewed by Reader’s Digest about the year of the Ox 2021. Read article here.
Happy Halloween and happy full Moon,

October 16 2020 at 12:31 pm PDT is a new Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of marriage, partnership, and peace. The focus this lunar month is on harmonious relationships with others while maintaining calm and equilibrium.
Note that relationship communication can be challenging with Mercury retrograde until November 3 in Scorpio, then Libra, then back into Scorpio.
Emotions can be overwhelming at times because this Libra new Moon begins the lunar month of the passionate Fire Dog until November 13. During a Dog month, what matters most is honesty and integrity of character.
But Fire Dog can go to extremes as manifestations of the Taoist concept of yin and yang. Dog exhibits yin behavior when faithful and devoted, and yang behavior when a fierce guardian. (More information about Fire Dog is in my book Taoist Astrology.)
During this lunar month, don’t go with decisions that were made in anger as the new Moon and Sun are opposite Mars in Aries. Mars oppositions can bring disruption, and irritability or impatience with others. Mars is also squared Jupiter and Pluto causing combative energy.
The new Moon and Sun square Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn that can bring confusion about specific actions to take that may influence your life’s direction. Fortunately, Venus in Virgo trines Jupiter and Pluto for relationships to evolve to a stronger level of intimacy with a more conscious way of interacting.
I encourage you to contact me for your tarot reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation to support you through these challenging times.
Opportunities for relationship transformation are for all, and are strongest for Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dog, Tiger, Horse, and Rabbit years.
Happy new Moon,

October 1 2020 at 2:05 pm PDT is a full Moon in Aries. Fire sign Aries rules the 1st house of self image, creative potential, and self expression. Under the influence of brave dynamic Aries, there’s opportunity to expand your circle and make progress with your goals. This is the Harvest Moon, the full Moon closest to Autumn Equinox on September 22.
This full Moon marks the peak of Phoenix (Rooster) month. Phoenix is a hard worker, and is naturally good with details, so Phoenix energy is very helpful when taking action. Put plans in motion now, or complete what is in progress, before Mercury retrograde from October 13 until November 3.
Mercury will be retrograde for three weeks in Water sign Scorpio. Decisions could be made based on emotions, not rational understanding of facts. For some people, it can be challenging to follow your intuition. Contact me for your tarot reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation for clarity.
The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction in Earth sign Capricorn continues, emphasizing both financial and political issues. Saturn and Pluto square Mars in Aries also continues, that can bring power struggles and disagreements.
Fortunately, Venus in Leo trines Mars that’s favorable for creativity. Relationship problems can be smoothed over with a generous balance between individual desire and the needs of others. There can be love, passion, and romance under the light of this full Moon!
Opportunities for progress and dynamic breakthrough are for all, and are strongest for Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Phoenix, Monkey, and Rat years.
The next full Moon on October 31 will be a Blue Moon, meaning the second full Moon in one month. The Blue full Moon will be in Taurus on Halloween.
Happy full Moon,

September 17 2020 at 4:00 am PDT is a new Moon in Virgo . Earth sign Virgo rules the sixth house of work, healing, nutrition, and herbology. Focus is on health, making steady progress, and taking care of self and others.
The new Moon and Sun in Virgo trine Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This lunar month will bring increased satisfaction from being disciplined with your work. You’ll find it easier to get organized, and concentrate on planning.
Note that Mars in Aries is retrograde until November 13 and may slow progress, so for the next two months work with consistency and focus. Follow up on details, and complete what you start.
It might be challenging to follow your intuition because the new Moon and Sun square Neptune. There can be a gap between idealism and reality. Therefore, this is not the time for risky ventures. It’s better to use what you know works, and worked in the past, instead of implementing new methods. If uncertain about priorities, contact me for your tarot reading, astrology forecast. or feng shui consultation for guidance.
This new Moon begins the lunar month of the Wood Phoenix, also translated as Rooster or Chicken. Phoenix is conscientious, takes pride in a job well done, understands that rewards take time and hard work, and is a perfectionist. The Wood Phoenix is growth oriented and idealistic. This energy can be motivating and inspiring, especially during Mars retrograde, but avoid the Phoenix tendency to commit to too many projects or responsibilities.
The retrograde planets of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Earth sign Capricorn continues, emphasizing both financial and political issues. Saturn and Pluto square Mars also continues, that can bring power struggles and disagreements. And during a Phoenix month, people can love a good fight. Instead, use Virgo’s innate analytical skills to solve problems during this lunar month.
Opportunities for progress and a good harvest this autumn are for all, and are strongest for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake years.
Happy new Moon,

September 1st at 10:22 pm PDT is a full Moon in Pisces. Water sign Pisces rules the twelfth house of intuition, emotions, mysticism, dreams, and endings. People can become very emotional during the evening of and the days surrounding this full Moon. Deep-rooted feelings and fears can come to surface about personal matters, and larger issues of Covid trauma, social injustice, and the ending of life cycles.
This full Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces that increases sensitivity and empathy. People are more aware of their surroundings, so take time to beautify and focus on feng shui of your home and workplace, especially if your home is now also your workplace. If feeling very sensitive, like a psychic sponge, this full Moon is time to gently nurture and take care of yourself.
The Sun in Earth sign Virgo trines Jupiter in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus bringing a more optimistic viewpoint and heightened perception to remain grounded while keeping firm boundaries to avoid becoming emotionally overwhelmed.
Jupiter conjuncts Saturn, also in Capricorn, to slowly and patiently build on your current foundation, and not indulge in what Buddhists refer to as “monkey mind” during the peak of this Monkey month: jump to a branch, grab a banana, peel it, take a bite, drop it. Then jump to the next branch, grab a banana, peel it, take a bite, drop it —wasting time and effort.
The full Moon sextiles Uranus in earthy Taurus for new understanding and willingness to expand your horizons. You may feel the need to make changes to to your environment, absorb new learning, and explore creative options. Contact me for your tarot reading, feng shui consultation, or astrology forecast for insights and support with your new ideas and decisions.

Anger can be easily provoked, so take care and avoid dangerous situations or violent people.
Opportunities for emotional awareness and psychic strength are for all, and are most deeply experienced by Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and those born in Rabbit, Sheep, Monkey, and Pig years.

The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in Leo, bringing creativity, passion, and excitement. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury also trine Mars in Aries for strength, stamina, and courage.

Monkey is ingenious, mercurial, and a natural leader. The element Wood symbolizes new growth and expansion, making Wood Monkey growth-oriented, creative, and idealistic. There’s increased confidence to speak your mind and make bold plans. If you were considering a new path, now it the time to plan or launch under the influence of Wood Monkey.
However, even with Wood Monkey’s enthusiast and pioneering spirit, Mars squares Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. There could be obstacles in your path, or a need to slow down to address details. There can be creative transformation, but also power struggles and disagreements with people going to extremes. Contact me for your tarot or astrology reading for clarity.
The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction (blended together) in Capricorn continues, placing focus on financial and political issues. All three of these planets are retrograde, adding to the intensity.

August 3 2020 is a full Moon in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius rules the 11th house of friends, networks, and social values. Aquarian individuals are unique thinkers who tend not to follow convention, making this full Moon the time for innovative viewpoints, methods, and unanticipated experiences.
If challenged to apply new methods, the full Moon and Sun in Leo square Uranus in Taurus, creating a fixed T-square. There could be relationship difficulties due to conflicting opinions, lack of patience concerning responsibilities, or it’s just hard to stay on your chosen life path. But a sudden Uranus difficulty can help to discover what is bothering you to start eliminating it from your life.
Fortunately, the Leo Sun trines Mars in Aries, Mars’ powerful rulership sign. This Fire trine is favorable for new projects, there’s increased vigor and enthusiasm about motivation and goals, and physical activity of all kinds is very rewarding. Contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast about a new direction.
This full Moon marks the peak of summer at the solar point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox. This is the time in the ancient European agricultural calendar of Lammas, meaning loaf mass, celebrating the threshing of grain and the first fruits of harvest. This full Moon is also the peak of Water Sheep month for a more gentle way of relating to others.
The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn continues, placing focus on financial and political issues. Opportunities for change and awareness are for all, and are most dynamic for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Tiger, Horse, Sheep, and Dog years.

July 20 2020 at 10:33 am PDT is a new Moon in Cancer, the second Cancer new Moon in a row. This is because 2020 is a leap year with two additional lunar cycles. There have been two Metal Snake months in May and June in Chinese astrology, and two Cancer new Moons in June and July in Western astrology.
The Moon is ruled by Cancer, a very comfortable sign for the Moon. Cancer rules the 4th house of home, family, and nurturing. Continue to take care of self and others, focus on family connections, and creative ways to nurture.
This new Moon begins Water Sheep month in Chinese astrology. Sensitive Water Sheep is a kind and gentle soul, bringing a peaceful and gracious tone to this lunar month. Sheep is a symbol of love and peace, making this the time for healing after the exciting yet chaotic energy of the previous Horse month.
The new Moon and Sun in Cancer are opposite Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon represents your emotions and inner life, whereas the Sun represents your ego and selfhood. Oppositions involve other people.
The Jupiter opposition could bring exaggerated feelings for personal freedom, rejecting duties and responsibilities.
The Saturn opposition aids in the emotional rebellion against rules and structure, especially the government, the economy, and politics. There could be feelings of alienation, especially during Covid-19.
The Pluto opposition can bring intense encounters with authority figures. Subconscious forces can create fundamental changes. We can collectively build new structures and experience transformation on both a personal level and a global scale.
During these challenging oppositions, contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast for guidance. Emotional and spiritual understanding is for all, and is deepest for Water signs Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio and those born in Sheep, Rabbit, and Pig years.

July 4 2020 at 9:44 pm PDT is a full Moon in Capricorn, with a lunar eclipse at 9:32 pm PDT. This is the third and final eclipse of the summer. Eclipses are an absence of light when the shadow is seen, the time for what is hidden to come to light.
Earth sign Capricorn rules the 10th house of material wealth, career, and status in society. Capricorn Moon is time to focus on practical matters of health, finances, and work. Capricorn also rules societal structures, government, and global wealth.
The eclipsed full Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all in Capricorn, and all three planets are retrograde adding intensity. So blended together are strongly felt emotional issues with the eclipsed Moon, opportunity for change with Jupiter, structural foundation issues with Saturn, and power and wealth challenges with Pluto.
The eclipsed full Moon is opposite the Sun and Mercury in Cancer. (Mercury still retrograde until July 12.) Water sign Cancer’s focus is on emotional security and nurturing, whereas Earth sign Capricorn concerns material security and authority. There can be lack of harmony between personal needs and work obligations.
Fortunately, the eclipsed full Moon trines Uranus in Taurus bringing opportunities to make personal change to live in a new way, and constructive rebellious change to bring social transformation. Plus the Sun trines Neptune in Pisces for increased empathy, understanding, and kindness. Contact me for a tarot reading or astrology forecast about your new life direction.
Also fortunate is Venus in Gemini sextiles Mars in Aries that favors romantic relationships. Jupiter and Pluto sextile Neptune bringing idealism, optimism, and the ability to make a fresh start.
Opportunities for realistic change and transformation are for all, and are strongest for Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo and those born in Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years.
Happy full Moon,
