Moon Goddess

Venus conjunct Jupiter is very fortunate for all types of relationships. There are opportunities for new love, or an existing relationship deepens. People will be warm and friendly, and good timing for social gatherings. Venus and Jupiter trine Neptune in Pisces that inspires compassion and humanitarian instincts.

Communication can become serious as Mercury in Sagittarius conjuncts Saturn. The Sagittarian urge to speak the truth can sound more harsh than constructive.

But this astrological aspect is excellent for tech work and projects requiring precision. Mercury sextiles Mars in Libra bringing confidence to be decisive and take the initiative. Launch your plans before Mercury goes retrograde on December 2 until December 21. Mars squares Pluto so prepare to stand firm and stay focused on your goals.



This new Moon begins the month of the Metal Pig. Pig month is time for merriment and enjoyment. Let the holiday festivities begin with some self indulgence and fun.

Pig month is also a time of peace, understanding, harmony, and fellowship. Ease and enjoyment of the good life are valued more than power and status. People can be kinder to each other in everyday interactions, and feel little need for competition. But honest Pig can be naive, so be sure that no one takes advantage of you this month, especially in financial dealings.

The element Metal in feng shui represents a clean, pristine environment. Contact me for your feng shui consultation that can do wonders for your home or office. Luck is strongest for Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer and those born in Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep years.

Happy new Moon,




2017 Tail of Metal DOG Month

November 15, 2017 § Leave a comment

Now are the last few days of this Metal DOG month, a powerful time for truth telling & fighting for the underdog. Stay strong! From my book TAOIST ASTROLOGY where I call the Metal Dog the white Dog, white being the color of Metal for yang astrology signs:
Metal characteristics — righteousness, independence, strong will, intensity, uprightness, determination, and the ability to focus — are natural Dog traits. This is why the white Dog is one of the most powerful animals of the Taoist zodiac.
Metal is also Dog’s earthly branch (see page 21). White Dog has a double dose of of righteousness and will. In Tibetan astrology, white Dog is referred to as the IRON DOG due to such strong Metal qualities. White Dog can become a zealot, a human pit bull who refuses to loosen his grip.
White Dog is often feared because this iron strength can be applied to either altruistic or destructive pursuits, depending on his disposition and karmic path. White Dog is true to personal morals and convictions, and does not want to be questioned or corrected. This life is one of extremes, with events in either black or white.

Dog Month #MeToo

November 11, 2017 § Leave a comment


November 2017 is the month of the Dog in Chinese astrology. Dog traits are honesty, integrity, and speaking up for the underdog. The truth is sniffed out, and injustice is exposed.

During this Dog month, women have come forward to openly speak about sexual assault, abuse, and harassment. And people believe the women, instead of placing shame and blame for wearing the wrong clothing, saying no when she really meant yes, or other insane justifications.

Tarana Burke started the hashtag #MeToo on Twitter to publicize these experiences and to demonstrate the massive amounts of mysogynist behavior. Millions of women posted, including me, and this is just the beginning of the discussion.

The truth telling during this Dog month gives us a sample of what to anticipate in Dog year 2018. More perpetrators of violence against women will be exposed, and will have to deal with the consequences of their behavior. I so look forward to this upcoming Earth Dog year. You have no idea.

2017 Dog Month Full Moon

November 2, 2017 § 1 Comment


November 3 2017 is a full Moon in Earth sign Taurus. Sensual Taurus, ruled by Venus, appreciates the physical pleasures of life and all things beautiful. Time for some romance and enjoyment this weekend!

Justice and truth are championed as this full Moon is the peak of noble Dog month. Good to see in a new light your earthly possessions, property, and material things. Then you can decide what to keep, and what can be passed on.

November a very opportune month for optimism and enthusiasm to proceed with your plans due to the Sun conjunct Jupiter in powerful Scorpio. Initiate and develop during November before Mercury goes retrograde on December 2 until December 21.

Try not to overspend on an ideal, or overextend your energy with others, as The Sun and Jupiter conjunction is opposite the full Moon.

There is a heightened interest in metaphysics, and a personal search for meaning. Seek the truth and develop spiritually as the Sun and Jupiter trine Neptune. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for guidance.

You might notice that people are more emotional, and respond with feelings, not the rational mind, as four planets are in Waters signs. Fortunately, understanding is enhance and relationship compatibility can improve as Venus and Mars are in cooperative Libra.

Luck is strongest for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Dog, Tiger, Rabbit, and Horse years.

Happy full Moon,

MARS and SUN enter New Signs

War and courage planet MARS enters pacifist Air sign LIBRA today Nov 23 2017 until Dec 9. Much better for working collectively, with more attention to relationship dynamics. Libra ruled by love planet VENUS softens Mars.

The SUN enters powerful Water sign SCORPIO today until Nov 21. The gentler Libran Mars bring out the softer, more spiritual side of Scorpio for a month of transformation and insights. Adding luck is Sun conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio!

2017 Libra New Moon begins Dog Month

October 16, 2017 § 1 Comment


October 19 2017 is a new Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of marriage and partnership, so time for balance in relationships. The Sun, new Moon, Mercury, and Jupiter are close together in a stellium bringing Jupiter’s luck, plus the mercurial abilities to communicate well, plan perceptively, and see the big picture during this lunar cycle.

The Sun, new Moon, and Jupiter are opposite Uranus. People could be restless or impatient about goals and life direction. Emotional reactions can show what needs to be healed, or can indicate if an obligation is fulfilled. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for relationship clarity.

This new Moon begins the month of the Metal Dog when honesty, integrity, and loyalty are key. The Metal Dog is especially strong, and not afraid of a fight! Controversial issues are given attention, oppression is exposed, and there’s a general sense of identifying with and fighting for the underdog. Everyone can benefit from Dog’s pragmatic reasoning and sense of fair play. Luck is strongest this lunar month for those born in DogTigerHorse, and Rabbit years and Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini.

Happy new Moon,
