May 30, 2022 at 4:30 am PDT is a new Moon in Gemini. Gemini is the magical, mercurial trickster of the zodiac. Air sign Gemini rules the 3rd house of communication, ideas, and travel. The new Moon and Sun are in Gemini to inspire and brainstorm ideas, plans, and concepts during this lunar month. Contact me for your tarot or astrology reading for guidance.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and Mercury retrograde continues until June 3. We can feel the retrograde influence for an extra week until June 10. Still, there is much mercurial action as Mercury trines Pluto in Capricorn for new learning and greater insight; Mercury sextiles Neptune in Pisces that stimulates creative imagination and increases intuition; and Mercury squares Saturn in Aquarius for needed discipline, yet can be critical of differing viewpoints.
This new Moon begins the month of the Fire Horse. Horse month is favorable in a Tiger year because Tiger is very compatible with Horse. They are both brave, strong souls who are natural warriors. Exciting Fire Horse month is time to take action and explore. In Chinese medicine, Horse’s earthly branch is Fire, giving Fire Horse a double dose of Fire’s brilliance and vitality. Fire Horse is independent, determined, and no one can tell a Fire Horse what to do.
Enhancing Fire Horse dynamism is Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aries that indicates fortunate action and outcomes. If you knock on a door, it opens. You can take a chance and win, although you might need to slow down a bit if you lose focus. Fire energy can become chaotic, but there is stability with Mercury, Venus, and Uranus all in fixed Earth sign Taurus.
Fire Horse lunar month can be a powerful and decisive time for all, and is strongest for Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and those born in Horse, Tiger, Dog, and Sheep years.
Happy new Moon,

May 15, 2022 is a lunar eclipse at 9:11 pm PDT, and a full Moon in Scorpio at 9:14 pm PDT. Water sign Scorpio rules the eighth house of birth and death, sex, and transformation. Scorpios are very insightful and can bond on a very deep level.
During a Scorpio full Moon, emotions are strong, and intuition is heightened. The eclipse brings greater emotional intensity. If old resentments or issue from the past come to the surface, what needs to be discovered can finally come to light.
Fortunately, this full Moon trines Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune. You have more courage to stand your ground, yet still have empathy and sensitivity to your own moods and the moods of others. Emotions that bubble to the surface can create truthful connections that enhance everyone’s well-being.
This full Moon eclipse marks the peak of Snake lunar month, a time for shedding skins of the past to create new life and abundance. As the full Moon wanes for the next two weeks, you can release and let go emotionally. And continue doing your spring cleaning! It’s just easier to get by with less.
Mercury is still retrograde until June 3. It’s better to review past events instead of putting plans into action right now. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast for clarity. Spring rebirth is for all, especially Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer and those born in Tiger, Rabbit, Snake, and Sheep years.
Happy full Moon,

You’re probably feeling it already!

April 30, 2022 at 1:26 pm PDT is a new Moon eclipse in Taurus. Earth sign Taurus rules the 2nd house of money, possessions, and the material realm. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, making this lunar month time to appreciate what is of value in your life, what to keep, and what to discard. Therefore, this lunar month is ideal for a massive spring cleaning on all levels.
This new Moon eclipse begins Wood Snake lunar month. Discerning your values and letting go of what is not needed is easier during a Snake month, the time for introspection and to shed skins of the past. The element Wood adds energy and enthusiasm for growth in springtime. In Chinese Medicine, Snake’s earthly branch is Fire. Wood feeds Fire, creating a bright blaze that is very fortunate for growth and development.
The new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are all in Taurus to shed your skins in a new and unique way. With the influence of Uranus, there can be sudden opportunities. Still, be thoughtful and plan before you make a big move. Mercury is retrograde from May 10 to June 3 to be more thorough.
Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune are all in Water sign Pisces. This is favorable for romance and relationships. Plus communication is strong with Mercury, newly in Gemini, trine Venus and Pluto. There can be clear conversations that get to the heart of the matter.
If you need to schedule surgery or plan an important event during this eclipsed Snake lunar month, I can help you find the perfect date. A surgery tip is to never schedule surgery on the full Moon, or the three days before and the two days after the full Moon, to avoid swelling and complications. My information about event astrology.
Opportunities for material and spiritual transformation are for all during this Wood Snake month, and are most profound for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Ox, Phoenix (Rooster), and Monkey years.
Happy new Moon,

April 16, 2022 at 11:55 am PDT is a full Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of marriage and partnership. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet named for the goddess of art, love, and beauty. So focus is on close relationships, and ways to create peace and harmony through balance and fairness.
Truthful emotions and empathetic interactions are important as Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune are all in Water sign Pisces. The influence of Jupiter conjunct Neptune can bring out the best in people, with greater compassion and idealism.
Jupiter is in Pisces every 12 years. But Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Pisces last occurred 166 years ago in 1856. Then as now, it’s a time of cultural and spiritual growth and expansion. Plus Jupiter and Neptune are the ruling planets of Pisces, adding luck and good fortune.
This full Moon marks the peak of sensitive Water Dragon month. There is a feeling that the volume is turned up in Dragon month. Life events could have a fated quality, or opportunities could arise suddenly that require quick decision making in Tiger year. So step forward and be brave during this Dragon month in Tiger year!
Use Dragon power and determination now, and during the next two weeks as the full Moon wanes, to put plans into motion. If plans are already in motion, use your energy to tie up loose ends because Mercury will be retrograde May 10 – June 3. But really May 3 – June 10 (note the reversed dates) if you include the one week shadow period the week before and the week after Mercury retrograde.
Contact me to schedule your tarot reading or astrology forecast for spring. Energy to bravely create new change is for all, and is strongest for Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dragon, Tiger, Horse, and Phoenix (Rooster) years.
Happy full Moon,

March 31, 2022 is a new Moon in Aries at 11:24 pm PDT. Fire sign Aries rules the 1st house of self-image and self-expression. Aries is a brave pioneer who is ready to act. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are in Aries for bold new steps and direct communication this lunar month. Energy is with you to open new doors and make swift progress.
Now is the time to take the initiative. This new Moon begins the lunar month of the Wood Dragon. Dragon is the most powerful sign of the Chinese zodiac, and is considered very fortunate. Wood qualities are boldness, idealism, and enthusiasm. Wood symbolizes growth, especially growth in springtime. In Chinese medicine, Dragon’s natural element is Wood, giving Wood Dragon a double dose of Wood’s imagination, idealism, and luck.
Jupiter conjuncts Neptune in Water sign Pisces to follow your intuition more easily. There’s interest in spirituality, and opportunity for insights about your life path. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology chart during these sensitive times.
Venus, Mars, and Saturn are conjunct in Air sign Aquarius to be open to new concepts and methods. Venus brings increased expression of love and creativity. Venus and Mars together are ideal for passion and romance, but tempered by Saturn’s practical considerations. Work will continue to require concentrated effort and discipline. If ambition is erratic, don’t dissipate your energy in too many directions in this Tiger year.
New opportunities are for everyone, and are strongest for Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Rat, Phoenix (Rooster), and Snake years.
Happy new Moon,

March 18, 2022 is a full Moon in Virgo at 12:17 am PDT. Earth sign Virgo rules the 6th house of health, work, and service. For some, it’s time to reassess work commitments and ways to be of service. For others this full moon, and as the moon wanes, is time for nurturing and attention to health.
Virgos tend to be analytical, and their actions are usually well thought out. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, as is Gemini. The one astrology sign opposite Virgo is the intuitive and sensitive Water sign Pisces. The Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, and Neptune are all in Pisces at this full Moon. Your rational mind tells you one thing while your heart tells you another!
With many planets in Pisces, follow your heart. It’s easier to do in this Water Tiger year and Water Rabbit month. Rabbit correlates to the Western sign Pisces, adding to the Piscean ability to easily flow and adapt to change. Contact me for your tarot reading about life direction, or your astrology forecast for timing.
Venus conjuncts Mars in Capricorn that’s fortunate for love and romance. Venus and Mars square Uranus in Taurus. This can be disruptive, but also liberating. So be patient with loved ones — or get things out in the open to reach a deeper understanding. Maintain Rabbit kindness and flexibility with Tiger’s need for direct expression.
Spring Equinox is March 20 at 8:33 am PDT, equal day and equal night on Earth, and the solar point between Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice. The Sun enters Fire sign Aries, marking the beginning of the solar year. Time for a spring awakening after a Covid winter!
Pisces compassion and Equinox balance are for everyone, and are most transformational for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Rat, Ox, Rabbit, and Snake years.
Happy full Moon,

A woman who is a sensitive and a tarot client of many years sent me an email about what I sensed was a ghost in her home. Yes, a ghost in San Francisco! There will be more sensing of spirits during this Water Tiger year due to the shamanistic qualities of the Tiger, especially the Water Tiger.
Here is her letter, followed by my advice on what to do should you have a similar experience. Plus the Sun is conjunct Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces today, a time of increased intuition and empathy, and good for info about the supernatural and other worldly.
“I wanted to get your advice regarding strange things happening at home and I’m starting to get worried.
It started happening about a month ago. My husband and I were in different parts of the house, it was daytime and all of the sudden we heard a strong noise of glass breaking, like someone had thrown plates to the floor. I asked my husband Dan if he had thrown plates or something and he said no. Then he also asked me the same question and I told him I was in the bathroom. We went to the kitchen and we saw a lot of broken glass in the floor from a vase that was on top of the kitchen counter next to the wall and now it was on the floor broken into a million pieces. It seemed like someone had thrown it on the floor in purpose. It was very strange.
A few days later I had a few walnuts wrapped up in tinfoil next to me on top of a small table. All of a sudden they were thrown to the floor. I was surprised because they were not next to the edge of the table to naturally slide down to the floor, and there was no wind inside the house so I found it a bit strange because it felt they were thrown on purpose but I dismissed it.
A few nights ago it was around 3:00 am and I couldn’t sleep so I went to the living room to watch a bit of TV because I was feeling restless. All of a sudden I heard very loud voices coming from the other TV on the other side of the house. So I went to check the room and the sound on that TV was at full volume but no images where on the TV. I turned the sound down to silence it, I was a bit shaken for a bit, so I put on a funny movie until I fell back to sleep.
Last night in our bedroom one of the heavy dumbbells my husband has on top of an exercise bench felt to the floor in the middle of the night. Strange… I don’t think it was an earthquake in our bedroom.
I’m very sensitive to smells and at night sometimes I smell a weird smell while I’m falling sleep and I need to spray lavender or other air freshener.
A few Saturday’s ago during the day at home in the living room I had a very strong urge to close my eyes and sleep. My eyes weighted a ton and I slept most of the day. I found it very strange that all of a sudden the following day at around 8 pm I felt the same strong weight in my eyes, that I needed to close them and sleep for a while. It may be because I was very tired or I need iron? Lately my eyes hurt a lot, maybe because of working long hours on the computer.
I’m trying not to think about it and not to show fear. But next week Dan is going on a trip for a few days and I’m afraid to be alone. I’ve never been afraid to be alone before but I’m afraid now. Do you think I’m overreacting?”
My reply is you are not overreacting!
1. First, do a fast housekeeping for about 15 minutes to 1/2 hour with your husband. Change the bed linens, take out garbage, dust the furniture, vacuum the rugs, wipe the floors, and tidy up any clutter. Move things like boxes if they’re sitting around, pare down, and keep the weights stored on the floor for now. Clear out junk or clutter for spring cleaning right now.
2. Get a sage smudge stick. Or you can use dried rosemary from your kitchen if you don’t have sage. You can even use dried bay leaves. Crack open the windows about an inch or two, or more if you feel like it and there’s not a cold wind. Then light the dried sage (or other herb, but I recommend sage) and smudge your home. Go through each room from corner to corner with the lit sage.
While you smudge, say out loud, “Move on to progression.” Repeat that a few times. Then play spiritual music or fun light music that you in your husband like. Maybe you and he can dance around to fill up your space with your good energy together.
3. Since you have sprayed a nice scent, after you smudge then spray again in the corners of each room and in areas where you felt weird energy. Say “Move on to progression” while spraying. You and your husband then watch a nice movie together, or have a nice dinner, but under no circumstance do you fight or argue. Also do not have sex for the next night or two. Just be very kind with each other.
4. If you wake up and watch a movie, be sure it’s a light comedy, leave some lights on, and sip water to not be thirsty. And stay warm. If you sense this weird energy again, such as flickering lights or changing TV volume, then turn off the TV, play spiritual or soothing new age music, crack the window, and smudge right at that place.
5. When you go to bed tonight, visualize you, hubby, and the apartment in white light.
So get a sage smudge stick today if you don’t already have one, or use the kitchen herb if you have it. Just be sure that you do not make too much smoke so that your fire alarm goes off! Do all of this while it’s still light out before sunset.
And spray your organic water sprays, not not some chemical air freshener. You can even make healing waters. You’re Catholic so can get holy water from the Catholic church closest to you and use that. Remember to firmly say, “Move on to progression” while spraying.
Let me know how it goes. I can always do a half hour Feng Shui consultation at your apartment if you want more support with this. But do all these steps first. Move on to progression is the goal.
I’m happy to let you know that the above steps were taken, and there is no more strange energy in her home!

March 2, 2022 is a new Moon in Pisces at 9:35 am PST. Water sign Pisces rules the 12th house of intuition, spirituality, and dreams. The new Moon, Sun, Jupiter, and Neptune are all in Pisces to focus on creativity, spirituality, and healing. It’s time for a rebirth and renewal. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for springtime.
This new Moon begins Water Rabbit lunar month. Gentle and artistic Rabbit is the diplomat of the Chinese zodiac. The element Water is adaptable, strong, and able to flow around obstacles. A war broke out last week, three weeks into this Tiger year, and Rabbit month can bring calm and peaceful dialogue.
Very fortunate is the new Moon and Sun conjunct Jupiter. There can be a general feeling of optimism and increased generosity. People are in touch with emotions, with concerns for the deeper aspects of life. This Jupiter transit can bring opportunities for expansion, and is favorable for travel.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune brings inspiration, idealism, and a greater sense of compassion. There can be new interest in philosophy, metaphysics, and spirituality.
Another powerful conjunction is Venus, Mars, and Pluto in Capricorn. Venus conjunct Mars favors love, romance, and creative expression. With Pluto, encounters and conversations could be intense. But love can transform everyday life, and relationships can experience profound change. There’s renewed energy, with opportunity for success.
However, keep words and actions peaceful in Rabbit month. Note that Mercury conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius so people can sound more stern or angrier than intended.
Spiritual health and well-being are for all, and is most strongly felt by Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and those born in Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig years.
Happy new Moon,

February 16, 2022 at 8:56 am PST is a full Moon in Leo. Powerful and passionate Fire sign Leo rules the 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. This is the first full Moon of Tiger month in this Tiger year, bringing the strength of two tigers to open a new door in your life this spring. During this full Moon, and as the Moon wanes, follow your instincts with courage and bravery.
Luck favors a loving and open lion heart. Venus conjuncts Mars in Capricorn that’s favorable for love and creative expression. People can meet other’s needs, and there could be a new relationship or a current one deepens. Venus and Mars trine Uranus in Taurus to easily change routines or structures left over from Ox year. Time for more excitement in life, including new encounters for personal growth. Contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast.
Note that Mercury conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. Communication has force and vigor. If words seem too harsh or direct, Tiger is just getting to the point. But there can be better understanding, and opportunity for insight and enlightenment. Copies of my Tiger year talk are available for purchase here.
Luck for new creative endeavors is for all, especially Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Tiger, Horse, Dog, and Pig years.
Happy full Moon,
San Francisco, CA
