A BLUE FULL MOON?

May 21, 2016 § 2 Comments

full moonlight

A Blue Moon is 2 full Moons in one month of the Gregorian calendar. So the May 21 full Moon in Sagittarius is not a Blue Moon according to that definition.

But an older interpretation of a Blue Moon is 4 full Moons during a solar cycle (between an Equinox and a Solstice, or between a Solstice and an Equinox).

Now is the 4th full Moon between Spring Equinox on March 19 and Summer Solstice on June 20 in 2016, so this does qualify as a Blue Moon in the older astronomical meaning.

Happy full Moon!

2016 Sagittarius Full Moon Peak of Snake Month

FULL MOON in SAGITTARIUS

May 21 2016 at 2:14 pm PT is a full Moon in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius rules the ninth house of travel, adventure, and learning. Sagittarius is the truth seeker and truth teller of the zodiac.

This full Moon is exactly conjunct Mars newly in fiery Sagittarius. This adds strength to feelings and emotions. Plus this full Moon marks the peak of Snake month. You are in your power to quickly move on and shed skins of the past. Many planets are in mutable signs so change is easier.

The Sun, newly in Gemini, conjuncts Venus in Taurus. This is healing for relationships. But Sun and Venus are opposite the full Moon and Mars. Fortunately, Sun conjunct Venus can help calm irritability, and smooth over communication problems. Mercury goes direct on May 22, but we can still feel this mercurial influence until the next new Moon on June 4 that begins a new life cycle.

Very fortunate on this full Moon is a grand Earth trine of Mercury in Taurus, Jupiter in Virgo, and Pluto in Capricorn. This is opportune for career advancement, networking and new contacts open doors, and health and finances can improve.

But Jupiter is opposite Neptune and squares Saturn in a mutable T-square. Goals could be unrealistic, patience and discipline are avoided, and for some a relationship may have outlived its usefulness.

Under the light of this Sagittarian full Moon, you can discover what is true and plan for your next adventure! Call me at 415.642.8019 in San Francisco or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Full Moon vigor is most strongly experienced by the Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Dragon, and Monkey years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

2016 Taurus New Moon begins Snake Month

May 3, 2016 § 1 Comment

Taurus bull kissNEW MOON in TAURUS

May 6, 2016 at 12:29 pm is a new Moon in sensual Earth sign Taurus. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all in Taurus. Plus Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet named after the Goddess of love, beauty, and fertility.

This new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Venus create a grand Earth trine with Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. This is extremely fortunate, especially for business. You can stay strong in your goals and convictions, and quickly cover much ground.

Do not be discouraged by planets in retrograde Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. In this Fire Monkey year, just move right through.

MONTH of the SNAKE

This new Moon begins the month of the Water Snake. This is fortunate because Snake is a close ally with Monkey. Snake loves beauty and is a connoisseur of what life has to offer.

This lunar month is the time to shed skins of the past. Become a new you this springtime, loosen up, and join the Monkey fun! Get rid of all clutter with a spring cleaning in any part of your life that needs it.

Luck is strongest for Earth signs Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo and those born in Snake, Ox, Phoenix (Rooster), and Monkey years. Contact me at 415.642.8019 in San Francisco or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy new Moon,

2016 Scorpio Full Moon

FULL MOON in SCORPIO

April 21, 2016 at 10:24 pm PT is a full Moon in Scorpio. The influence of passionate Water sign Scorpio brings to the surface emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Venus conjuncts Uranus in fiery Aries and trines Saturn in Sagittarius. Family, friendships, and social connections can bring success, especially in business.

Plus Pluto in Capricorn trines Mercury in Taurus and Jupiter in Virgo for new learning, depth of perception, and increased generosity. But Pluto squares Venus and Uranus. There could be power struggles because people desire independence.

Note that Neptune in Pisces is opposite Jupiter in Virgo, and squares Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius. So this full Moon can be a time of inspired dreams — or unrealistic expectations. Perhaps not all dreams and plans will come to pass in this risky Fire Monkey year. This full Moon marks the peak of Dragon month to get clear about where you want to apply your energy and creativity.

MERCURY RETROGRADE

On April 28 Mercury goes retrograde for three weeks in Earth sign Taurus. Good to review, organize, and stay solid under the influence of strong Taurus. If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed so far in Fire Monkey year, these few weeks can bring opportunities to catch up, redo, and get centered.

Full Moon awareness is strong for everyone, and is most powerful for the Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer and those born in Pig, Rabbit, and Sheep years. Call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

2016 LIBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE

March 20, 2016 § Leave a comment

FULL MOON ECLIPSE

March 23, 2016 at 5:01 am PT is a full Moon eclipse (lunar eclipse) in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of marriage, partners, and relationships. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, so now is time to delve deeply into relationship dynamics and create balance. This full Moon eclipse is the peak of Rabbit month, so the calming influence of diplomatic Rabbit can smooth over relationship difficulties and restore peace.

Communication could be a challenge because this full Moon is opposite Sun conjunct Mercury in fiery Aries. There are many lively discussions and debates, but people tend to passionately see only their point of view. Fortunately, Sun and Mercury trine Mars in Sagittarius, and the full Moon makes a lucky sextile to Mars. You can get clear about your motivations, plan your next steps to take action, and work well independently or in groups.

Plus relationship standards are high because love planet Venus conjuncts Neptune in dreamy Pisces. Love is more spiritual, but it’s easy to idealistically love the potential not the person. Venus and Neptune are opposite Jupiter in Virgo. Although these are pleasant transits, and new relationships bring luck, it might be hard to determine what is real and what is fantasy.

Venus and Jupiter square Saturn in Sagittarius. Independence is balanced with the desire for connection, and some relationships could be revaluated. With so many aspects of Venus, this springtime is ideal to develop your art and creativity.

Call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot or astrology reading about relationships. Luck is strongest for Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dog, Tiger, Horse, and Rabbit years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan
