2015 FULL MOON in CAPRICORN

June 24, 2015 § 1 Comment

full moon horseJULY 1st 2015 at 7:20 pm PDT is a full Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn is practical and realistic, providing the perfect energy to slow down and relax if you’re feeling a bit scattered during this fast-paced Horse month.

Astrologically speaking, there’s much good news! Very fortunate is that love planet Venus continues to conjunct Jupiter in Leo to bring out the best in relationships. There is a heightened appreciation of love and beauty. Even casual social contacts lead to success. Venus and Jupiter both trine Uranus in Aries to attract new friends, and be receptive to new ideas.

Also fortunate is the Sun in Cancer continues to conjunct Mars that adds strength to your convictions, and physical strength to overcome illness. Sun and Mars both trine spiritual planet Neptune in Pisces to follow your instincts and Horse-month hunches. People are more idealistic and sensitive, with concern for the welfare of others.

Plus communication planet Mercury creates three lucky star sextiles to Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus. This is great for travel and scenic trips, you can make solid plans, and prepare your ideas to talk your way to success!

But note that the Full moon conjuncts Pluto, and Sun is opposite Pluto, bringing powerful depth of expression for art, sex, and all passions that stir your soul. Keep Plutonian creative energy strong and active as Horse month wanes. There will be time for reflection during double Sheep month that begins July 15; Water Sheep month in Wood Sheep year. More double Sheep in my next lunar update.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

2015 GEMINI NEW MOON STARTS HORSE MONTH

June 12, 2015 § 1 Comment

Two-horsesNEW MOON IN GEMINI

June 16, 2015 at 7:05 am PDT is a new Moon in Air sign Gemini. A new Moon is time to take action, especially under the influence of “can do” Gemini. The new Moon, Sun, and Mars are conjunct in Gemini. Mars in the mix adds strength and passion. This lunar month is good for adventure, social gatherings, and travel now that Mercury is no longer retrograde since June 11. Also good to network, make connections, and share ideas with close friends and family members.

There’s luck in love with Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo for warm feelings, and highlights romance. Venus is in lusty Leo until October, just perfect for a sensual Sheep year summer. Jupiter trining Uranus could inspire a quest for new freedom, you’ll realize it’s easier to grasp new ideas, and the Jupiter trine brings general good luck. Note that Mercury is opposite Saturn, and squares Neptune, so this is not the month for serious soul searching, or to go into details. It’s better to keep it light.

WATER HORSE MONTH

This new Moon begins the month of the Water Horse, the sensitive black Horse. Horse’s natural abilities and instincts are enhanced by the element Water. Plus Water tempers some of Horse’s natural Fire creating more reflective, empathetic, and intuitive energy. Horse month is fortunate in Sheep year so be on the lookout for opportunities from chance encounters.

Summer Solstice is on June 21, 2015 at 9:38 am PDT. Summer Solstice is the longest day and the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere. On Solstice day, both Venus and Jupiter trine Uranus. New relationships are exciting, and stable partnerships can be refreshed with new activities you do together. Call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com for tarot, astrology, and feng shui guidance this summer.

Happy new Moon,

Grand Fire Trine Full Moon

May 28, 2015 § 5 Comments

full moon horseJune 2, 2015 at 9:19 am PT is a full Moon in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius is a free spirit who loves adventure and seeks higher knowledge. The Sagittarius symbol is a half horse/half human archer shooting an arrow of truth to hit the mark. So the remaining two weeks of this lunar cycle are time to get to the heart of the matter by discovering and speaking your truth.

This Sagittarian full Moon trines Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries to create a fortunate grand Fire trine! People are friendly, warm, and supportive. They are generous and sincerely concerned with the welfare of others. There is a heightened interest in the meaning of life, of creating new structures and new ways of doing things. It’s easier to make needed changes in your environment, or make changes in your personal habits. Events from the past can be examined for new understanding and graceful release.

The Sun, Mercury, and Mars are conjunct in Gemini that brings energy, excitement, and a faster pace to life. But rational thought is influenced by emotions, and moods can change quickly. There’s a tendency to be hasty and irritable over small matters so maintain your equilibrium. This planetary conjunction is opposite the full Moon and squares Neptune in Pisces. People can be overwhelmed by demands of daily activities, and wonder if they’re on the right path in life. Under the influence of Neptune, idealism is aroused but concepts are not always practical. Mystical matters are of interest, but there is a need to stay grounded and realistic.

This full Moon marks the peak of Snake month. In Chinese astrology, Snake is a symbol of wisdom. Logical Snake thinks and ponders before taking action. So be like intelligent Snake and envision your outcome. It’s fine to slow down and contemplate during this exciting and fiery full Moon. During this time of opportunity and change, call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

Healing Baths during Mercury Retrograde

May 23, 2015 § Leave a comment

bunch-lavender

If you are feeling a bit scattered during this Mercury retrograde in Gemini, a series of 5 healing baths can help you feel better, get grounded, and be more in your body.

At a drug store, purchase a big bag of Epsom salts or a couple of boxes of baking soda (not baking powder). They are inexpensive and available for everyone. In the evening, take a bath in warm water with a half cup or full cup of Epson salts, or a bath of a half cup or full cup of baking soda. Be sure to submerge your head under the water. Stay in the water for as long as you can until the water cools off. You can take all 5 baths with the salt, or all 5 baths with the baking soda, or alternate in any order that you like. But don’t mix the salt with the baking soda.

If you have organic pure essential oils, add a few drops of lavender oil just before you get into the bath. Lavender is a flower of Gemini. Lavandin oil, derived from lavender, is also good. If lavender is too sweet for you, try organic essential oil of grapefruit or tangerine to clear your mind.

Hope you feel better soon.

Good luck,

Susan

NEW MOON IN TAURUS BEGINS SNAKE MONTH

Tapestry TaurusNEW MOON IN TAURUS

May 17, 2015 at 9:13 pm is a new Moon in Taurus. The new Moon and Sun are both in Taurus, a sensual Earth sign ruled by Venus, planet of love, art, and beauty. Taurean Moon and Sun are conjunct Mercury and Mars in early degrees of Gemini. This brings intellectual stimulation, new ideas, inspired creativity, and interesting conversations. But Sun, Moon, and Mars are opposite Saturn to pace yourself and be thorough. Plus Mercury and Mars square Neptune to think before acting on emotions.

MERCURY RETROGRADE

The ability for introspective thought and wise decision making is helped by Mercury retrograde from May 18 until June 11. Mercury is comfortable in rulership sign Gemini so you can cover much ground. Use these three weeks to get organized in preparation for the next new Moon on June 16 that begins Horse month, a time for action. Call me at 415.642.8019 or reply to this email to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for clarity about life direction.

METAL SNAKE MONTH

This new Moon in Taurus begins the month of the Metal Snake. The Snake lunar cycle is time to shed skins of the past, recycle, replace, and clean out the old. In feng shui, the Metal environment is clean, pristine, and highly functional. Now is the time for a transformational spring cleaning! Snake and Sheep (and Rabbit) are the artists of the Chinese zodiac making this Snake month in Sheep year ideal to beautify your environment. Fortunately, Venus in Cancer trines Neptune for enhanced creativity and an artistic eye to appreciate beauty.

Jupiter continues to trine Uranus for sudden luck and good fortune, and Uranus continues to square Pluto for political change on a global scale.

Happy new Moon,

Susan Levitt

Full Moon in Scorpio 2015

Full Moon Mt. EverestFULL MOON IN SCORPIO

Saturday May 2, 2015 marks the point between spring equinox and summer solstice. And Sunday May 3 at 8:42 pm PT is a full Moon in Scorpio. Water sign Scorpio is powerful and passionate. Plus this full Moon occurs in the middle of strong Dragon month. So life events can seem intensified, with a rush to complete things.

This Scorpio full Moon trines Neptune and Chiron, a minor planet (formerly classified as an asteroid) used in astrology that is symbolic of healing. There is more creative inspiration and sensitivity to the moods of others. Full Moon trine Chiron is an ideal time to explore alternative medicine and different healing modalities. This full Moon is in a harmonious sextile to Pluto, and the Sun in Taurus trines Pluto, for breakthroughs with both emotional
understanding and with your health.

The full Moon and Sun square Jupiter in Leo. These are fortunate squares because Jupiter is involved. They add energy to get ahead and accomplish goals, and emotions are more powerful bringing compassion and benevolence. The challenge is to not overdo or overextend.

Stay aware of communication dynamics because Mercury is opposite Saturn and squares Neptune. It’s best to slow down and be thorough, and get your facts and details organized before Mercury goes retrograde on May 18 for three weeks until June 11. Jupiter continues to trine Uranus for sudden luck and good fortune, and Uranus continues to square Pluto for political change on a global scale.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

NEW MOON in ARIES

April 18, 2015 at 11:57 am PT is a new Moon in Fire sign Aries. Time to take action before Mercury goes retrograde in exactly one month on May 18. This new Moon is also fortunate to plant seeds for new growth and long-range development. Spring and summer are the action seasons of this Wood Sheep year so energy is with you to accomplish your goals.

Many planets are in Fire signs: the new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are all in Aries; Saturn is in Sagittarius; and Jupiter is in Leo. Fire is the element of action and creation, not passive receptivity. Jupiter trines Uranus for new discoveries, adventures, opportunities, and sudden good fortune. Plus courage planet Mars trines power planet Pluto bringing increased ambition, and ability to maintain your efforts. But note that relationship planet Venus squares Neptune and is opposite Saturn so it’s best to work independently because support from others may be lacking.

METAL DRAGON MONTH

You might feel increased power and strength because this new Moon begins the month of the Metal Dragon. The Metal Dragon, or white Dragon, is powerful and intense. There is a sense of karma or fate in even the smallest interactions this month. Mighty Dragon is the most powerful sign of the Chinese zodiac, a strong leader who brings luck, prosperity, and rain.

So use the energy of dynamic Dragon and pioneering Aries to get going this spring. Know you can call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation. Luck is with everyone to take action, and is most fortunate for the Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Monkey, and Rat years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan Levitt
