October 24 2018 is a full Moon in sensual Earth sign Taurus. This full Moon, and for the next two weeks as the Moon wanes, is time to appreciate earthly delights and enjoy the abundant harvest of Mother Earth. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, art, and beauty that adds to the Taurean love all things creative and handcrafted. Plus financial dealings are fortunate, and timing is good for career advancement.
The full Moon conjuncts Uranus retrograde in Taurus. Uranus is the planet of change and rebellion, so moods can change quickly. But sometimes impulsive or rash actions are needed to start a realistic discussion.
The Sun conjuncts Venus retrograde in early degrees of Scorpio. People are warm and social, relationships improve, and romance is important. It’s lucky for an intimate getaway or fun travel, especially before Mercury goes retrograde on November 16.

September 22 2018 is Autumn Equinox, equal day and equal night, a time for balance as the seasonal wheel turns. September 24 is the Harvest Moon, the full Moon that’s closest to Autumn Equinox. This Harvest Moon is in Fire sign Aries, bringing energy and vitality. Aries inspires action, and an independent spirit, during this full Moon and as this lunar cycle wanes.
The full Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in harmonious aspects to Mars, newly in Aquarius. Mars brings courage, self reliance, and stamina. It’s fortunate to engage in physical activity to strengthen the mind and spirit, as well as the body. It’s also a good time to examine motivations, and decide what projects to forward or to complete. Contact me for your tarot consultation about choices and direction.
The full Moon, Sun, and Mercury square Saturn to slow down and be thorough. Attention to details is important in this Phoenix month. So fine to focus on the little things if that’s what needed for completion. Be clear about responsibilities, or people could feel isolated if their communication is not understood. Fortunately, Venus trines Neptune in Water signs for increased empathy and understanding.
This Aries full Moon brings energy for all, especially Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Rat, Dragon, Snake, and Monkey years.
Happy full Moon,

VIRGO NEW MOON

This lunar month is time for attention to health, the health of your home, and is time to take action! This month is fortunate to launch plans, especially career plans, and to pursue opportunities. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in Virgo for clear communication. But under the influence of Virgo, details are important, as is follow through.
PHOENIX MONTH Sept 9 – Oct 7
This new Moon begins the lunar month of the Metal Phoenix (Rooster). Phoenix, like Virgo, takes pride in a job well done, and can be superb at planning and organizing. Know that Phoenix speaks frankly, making this lunar month the time for direct speech. This is the month of the Metal Phoenix. The element Metal can help make clean decisions.
In feng shui, Metal is the clean, white, and pure environment. It might time for an autumn cleaning this year to get organized before winter. This is also a good month to recover your health if not feeling balanced after Monkey month in August. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.
NEW MOON and SUN
The Virgo new Moon and Sun sextile Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter brings luck for success, and a period of growth and optimism. These aspects are good for group activities, especially positive interactions with women, and are favorable for financial transactions.
The new Moon and Sun trine Pluto in Capricorn. Emotions seem more powerful, and sensitivity is stronger. People can speak about deep feelings, with a sense of surviving challenges of the past. Plus these Pluto trines can bring increased vigor to overcome illness, or to start preventative healthcare practices.
The new Moon and Sun are opposite Neptune in Pisces. If people experience strange moods, they could be sensitive emotionally but not sure if what they feel is accurate. Should this occur, avoid risky or speculative ventures with others. Stay conscious of your surroundings, and take care when sensitive to outside influences.
GRAND EARTH TRINE
Keeping life grounded is a fortunate grand Earth trine of Mercury in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus. There’s serious thinking about important concerns, with wide scope and an eye for details. The hard work and discipline of Saturn can blend well with the originality and innovation of Uranus. Imagination is stimulated, making this a fortune month for travel, encounters with new people, and to learn from those who are more experienced.
Venus, newly in Scorpio, squares Mars. People can become critical about relationships, or overthink simple things during this Virgo month.
But lucky connections and opportunities are for all, especially Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake years.
Happy new Moon,
