Highlights are Tuesday, a lucky Phoenix (Rooster) day that’s good for communication & business; a powerful Iron Dog day on Wednesday when your focus & vitality are strengthened; and a double Wood Tiger day on Sunday to follow your passion!
Mon Feb 11 is an Earth Monkey day when Moon blends w/ both Mercury & Mars. It’s easy to experience what Buddhists call “monkey mind” – jump to a branch, grab a banana, peel it, take a bite, drop it; then jump to the next branch, grab a banana, peel it, take a bite, drop it. Reign in your Monkey mind and be less flighty today. Now is not a good time for decisions. Fortunately the Moon trines Saturn for needed stability & maturity. Luck is strongest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon & Snake and during the hours of the Monkey 3 pm – 5 pm.
Tues Feb 12 is the day of the Earth Phoenix (Rooster). This golden bird is very fortunate & blessed with all of life’s necessities. Be grateful that you have food on the table & a roof over your head. Mercury trines Saturn for metal stability, solid communication & excellent business acumen. Adding to your good fortune is that today is the first Phoenix day in this year of the Snake. Phoenix & Snake are best friends so energy is with you to be reborn & transformed in this Snake year. You can look forward to releasing old patterns & habits. Luck is strongest for Phoenix, Dragon, Snake & Ox and during Phoenix hours 5 pm – 7 pm.
Wed Feb 13 is the day of the Metal Dog. The Metal Dog has a double dose of Metal’s powerful abilities. Your focus & vitality can improve & you’ll be stronger in your endeavors. In Tibetan astrology, the Metal Dog is referred to as the “Iron Dog” because of his relentless focus & uncompromising ideals & values. The Moon blends w/ Uranus for sudden surprises or rash actions. But under the influence of the Metal Dog, follow your gut instincts. A rash action can be correct because this is a Tiger month, and Dog & Tiger are best friends. The Moon sextiles Venus this evening for good feelings, especially in groups because Dog loves the pack. Luck is strongest for Dog, Hare (Rabbit), Tiger & Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Thurs Feb 14 – Life can slow down on this sensual Metal Pig day. Party-loving, romantic Pig is perfect for Valentine’s Day! The Sun sextiles the Moon for emotional equilibrium. Relationships are very harmonious & people are at ease with each other. You can have success with very little effort, especially in romance. Enjoy a fine meal and some chocolate. Today is a time to be at peace and enjoy an easy flow of energy. Luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Hare & Sheep and during the hours of the Pig 9 pm – 11 pm.
Fri Feb 15 is the day of the Water Rat, good for organizing & planning. You can accomplish much & succeed in your goals, especially at work. Mars sextiles Pluto to realize important life goals. Your hard work is rewarded & you can be clear about your objectives. Working collectively is fortunate & you can make important alliances. Moon trines Pluto this evening for depth of experience & insights. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon & Monkey and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.
Sat Feb 16 is a Water Ox day to follow through & complete some projects. Mars trines Saturn for patience & willingness to work hard – and no one works harder or better than the Ox. You can work at a controlled & even pace, and concentrate your energies on a specific task. Today is fortunate for physical work or working out because Ox is so strong. But tonight is for socializing and enjoyment when the Moon makes a connection to love planet Venus. Luck is strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake & Phoenix years and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Sun Feb 17 is double Wood Tiger; a Wood Tiger day in a Wood Tiger month! The element Wood is about growth & quick development, like a plant growing in springtime. You can succeed with little effort & move quickly through any obstacles or challenges. The Moon squares both Sun & Neptune for a burst of new inspiration & dreams. So don’t hold on to the past. Tiger-like compulsive behavior might be just what’s needed to release a stuck situation & allow you to follow your passion. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse & Pig and during the hours of the Tiger 3 am – 5 am.
Have a great week!
