Jan 28 – Feb 3, 2013 YOUR WEEK IN CHINESE ASTROLOGY
January 27, 2013 § 3 Comments
Mon Jan 28 – Your week can start with a lively gallop on this active and optimistic Wood Horse day! The element Wood in Chinese astrology is about growth, like a plant developing in springtime. So OK to take a few risks today that lead to your advancement. The Moon is opposite Mars so don’t get irritated by little things. Plus the Moon is opposite Neptune tonight so you might feel a bit moody or overly sensitive. But under the influence of the strong Horse, it will be easier to be direct and quickly move forward instead of dwelling on the past. Luck is strongest for the Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during the hours of the Horse 11 am – 1 pm.
Tues Jan 29 is the day of the creative Wood Sheep. Sheep are kind and care about others. Fortunately the Moon trines Pluto so you can more easily forgive and express empathy for those who may have hurt you. Plus Moon sextiles Saturn so good to carve out some alone time to refresh your soul. You can balance your emotional needs with the needs of others. Sheep loves all things beautiful making today fortunate for a little luxury. Luck is strongest for the Sheep, Hare, Horse, and Pig and during the hours of the Sheep 1 pm – 3 pm.
Wed Jan 30 is a Fire Monkey day for sudden luck and unique opportunity. The planet of good fortune Jupiter goes direct today after being retrograde since October 4. Now doors can open and there will be fewer obstacles in your path. But the Sun squares Saturn so you might have problems with authority figures; just don’t directly confront higher-ups. Do as you please, and have a fun mid-week bash this evening when Moon trines Venus. Luck is strongest for the Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during the hours of the Monkey 3 pm – 5 pm.
Thurs Jan 31 is the day of the Fire Phoenix (Rooster). The Fire Bird is known for being direct, and Sun trines Moon so you can be clear and honest about your feelings. But Moon squares Pluto so avoid power struggles; be like the Phoenix reborn instead of pecking about details to prove that you are correct. Today is superb for self analysis and understanding, which is not always easy. Luck is strongest for those born in Phoenix, Dragon, Snake, and Ox years and during the hours of the Phoenix 5 pm – 7 pm.
Fri Feb 1 is a practical Earth Dog day to do the right thing. Any sort of dishonesty or nefarious scheme will be sniffed out and exposed. Follow your instincts and trust your intuitive sense. The Moon trines Mercury which is excellent for communication. It’s easier to speak your truth, and easier to understand the point of view of others. And good to focus on diet and nutrition on an Earth day. Luck is strongest for the Dog, Hare, Tiger, and Horse and during the Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Sat Feb 2 is an Earth Pig day, and Pig loves to party and celebrate. According to sensual Pig, the original bon vivant, life is a banquet so eat, drink, and be merry! Plus Moon trines Mars and Neptune, and sextiles Pluto bringing added energy, a positive outlook, and deep feelings of appreciation for loved ones. Fortunately today is the exact point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox to help stay balanced and not overindulge too much. Luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Hare, and Sheep and during the hours of the Pig 9 pm – 11 pm.
Sun Feb 3 is a Metal Rat day, good for organizing and planning. In feng shui the element Metal is a clean, pristine, Zen-like environment so it’s good to clean up before the work week begins tomorrow. The Sun squares tonight’s waning half Moon (which occurs on every half Moon) so not the time to follow impulse or whim. Instead think and strategize like a Rat. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey and during the hours of the Rat 11 pm – 1 am.
Have a good week!
