April 4, 2015 at 5:05 am PT is a full Moon eclipse in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of partnerships and marriage. Strong relationships will deepen, and weaker ones benefit from bringing to light relationships issues that need to be transformed.
This eclipsed full Moon is opposite the Sun, Mercury and Uranus all in Aries. Subjective full Moon feelings could run counter to a sense of logic. Now might not be best to make decisions that later cannot be changed. Fresh ideas can be inspirational, but perhaps impulsive under the influence of fiery Aries.
Fortunately, Jupiter in Leo trines this Sun, Mercury, and Uranus conjunction. There are opportunities to restore your health, create a new personal style of communicating, and develop more empathy. But Pluto in Capricorn squares the Sun, full Moon, and Uranus bringing a play for power. Self control brings success because past behaviors won’t work. If you’re feeling under pressure, take care of yourself and avoid direct confrontations.
Use these final two weeks of Earth Rabbit month to make amends in relationships and beautify your environment. The new Moon on April 18 begins Metal Dragon month, a time for action not negotiation. More about the white Dragon in my next astrology update.
Happy full Moon,

March 20, 2015 at 2:36 am PT is a new Moon eclipse in Pisces. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, so note your dreams, subconscious responses, and unexpected coincidences; what is important will rise to the surface.
Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Neptune are all in Pisces for increased altruism and empathy. Under the influence of sensitive Water sign Pisces, this is an ideal time to contact me at 415.642.8019 or firstname.lastname@example.org and schedule your tarot card reading, Sheep year forecast, or feng shui consultation.
EARTH RABBIT MONTH
This new Moon eclipse begins the month of the Earth Rabbit, the fortunate golden Rabbit. Rabbit is an artistic and gentle soul who craves peace and harmony. We can relax into the slower pace of this Sheep year because Sheep and Rabbit are best friends.
Rabbit correlates to the western sign Pisces, and Sheep correlates to the western sign Cancer, making this lunar month especially lucky for Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and for those born in Rabbit, Sheep, and Pig years.
VENUS in TAURUS
Adding to the beauty of Rabbit month in Sheep year is that Venus, the planet of love, art, music, and beauty, is in Taurus from March 17 through April 11. Venus is exalted in Taurus, the best sign for Venus. Earthy Taurus appreciates fine food, sensual pleasure, and all that is lovely and precious.
March 20 is also Spring Equinox at 3:45 pm PT. Spring Equinox, the time of equal day and equal night all over the world, is the balance point between Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice. The Sun enters Fire sign Aries for a fresh start and new beginning this spring. Out with the old and in with the new!
Happy new Moon,

Under the influence of intelligent and practical Earth sign Virgo, you can complete what you started, get organized, and pay attention to details.

Venus, Mars, and Uranus are all in fiery Aries, creating a grand Fire trine with Jupiter in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius. Actions bring results, and doors can open.
Fortunate Fire trines continue through the month of March, including Jupiter trine Uranus that lasts until the end of July. You can create a new way of expressing yourself with a new kind of freedom. So follow even the smallest bit of good luck or sudden opportunity.

Many people are asking me, “Is 2015 Chinese New Year for the Sheep, Goat, or Ram?”
Some translations refer to Sheep as Ram or Goat. This can be misleading. Ram is a yang symbol of masculinity, but Sheep is essentially yin. Ram could be confused with the western sign Aries the Ram, but Sheep aren’t know for their pioneering spirit like Aries. Aries correlates to the Chinese sign Dragon. Goat may bring to mind the western sign Capricorn the Goat, but Sheep rarely possess the drive to ascend to the mountaintop like Capricorn who correlates to the Chinese sign Ox. Sheep correlates to the western sign Cancer, the sign of the mother and nurturer.
THE WAY OF THE SHEEP
People born in Sheep years (2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1997, 1967, 1955, 1943, 1931, 1919, 1907) are artistic, inspired, empathetic, and naturally creative. Sheep appreciate beauty in all its forms, and are connoisseurs of the best life has to offer. They can find success in artistic fields, especially the healing arts. With a tendency to be introspective, Sheep require solitary peaceful moments to replenish. Sheep often struggle in youth until their first Saturn return at age 28 to 30, but as they age become stronger and discover their true calling. The most fortunate part of a Sheep’s life is when they are an elder.
The mildness of Sheep can hide an independent streak. In the wild, Sheep are surprisingly tough and able to tolerate sever weather and scarcity of food. Sheep have this natural ability to survive when one must, and are far stronger than they appear. A Sheep can be calm and charming, yet is very focused and determined. A Sheep won’t be told what to do, stay at a job they dislike, or be forced to compromise. If you are not a Sheep favorite, and Sheep does have a small select group, Sheep won’t confront you but will just go their own way. So keep the peace this Sheep year while developing your spiritual path and exploring creativity in the arts.

Sheep year is time for diplomacy, kindness, and healing. Of value in Sheep year is intimacy, family, and friendships. We can be more caring, gentle, and sensitive with each other. This is the year to develop a wild heart, open to love and acceptance on all levels.
Another theme of Sheep year is to express your creativity, artistic and spiritual development, and for cultivation of beauty. 2015 is a Wood Sheep year. Like fresh growth in springtime, a Wood year is time to grow, branch out, and explore.
Last year yang Horse 2014 was the time to go out and get. Sheep is a yin, receptive animal so allow things to come to you. Sheep’s approach is far more gentle. We can slow down and make plans with the support of friends and family. The time for risk and daring will be yang Fire Monkey 2016. Monkey adventures have more chance of success if you strengthened your foundation in Sheep year.

February 2, 2015 marks the midpoint between winter solstice and spring equinox. This seasonal time of year is celebrated in many traditions including Candlemas in Christianity and Tu BiShvat, New Year for trees, in Judaism. Called Imbolc in Gaelic, this is the festival of the Goddess Brigid and the first stirrings of spring. Animals awaken after winter hibernation, hence Groundhog Day for augury from the movement of animals.
