February 17, 2013 § Leave a comment
The highlights this week are Monday when the planet Saturn goes retrograde to slow down in this Snake year; Wednesday is DOUBLE SNAKE a Snake day in a Snake year for focus; luck and health are strong on Thursday a Horse day in a Tiger month; and Saturday could bring chaos when communication planet MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE on the day of the Monkey!
Mon Feb 18 is a sensitive Wood Hare day when kindness and consideration are valued. The Moon blends with big planet Jupiter to be in touch with your emotions. It’s easier to be more empathetic in your interactions with others. The planet Saturn goes retrograde until July 8 to slow down in this Snake year and be more patient. Luck is strongest for Hare, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during the Hare hours 5 am – 7 am.
Tues Feb 19 is powerful Fire Dragon day when there could be power struggles. The Moon squares Mercury so be aware of harsh communication, or a co-worker changing their mind to agree with the boss. The Moon’s harmonious trine to love planet Venus this evening helps people lighten up and not take too seriously any Dragon bluster. Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey years and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.
Wed Feb 20 is the day of the intense and focused Fire Snake. This is a double Snake day because this is a Snake day in a Snake year. The Sun blends with Neptune, and the Moon trines this Sun/Neptune combination, for uncanny emotional insights and a very strong sense of intuition. It’s best to pursue goals while playing your cards close to your chest, quietly observe, and keep your opinions to yourself. Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Phoenix (Rooster)and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.
Thurs Feb 21 is a strong day of the Earth Horse. This is a lucky day because Horse and Tiger are best friends (along with Dog) and this is the month of the Tiger. The Moon is in a very harmonious trine with Mercury, Mars, and Saturn so step forward and express yourself! Action brings rewards, and fine to make a big leap. It’s also a good day to get to a gym, hike, or work out. You can feel refreshed and more alive. Luck is strongest for the Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.
Fri Feb 22 is a lovely Earth Sheep day to get grounded and take care of yourself. Enjoy a nice meal, a little indulgent luxury, or a warm bath to take life easy. Sheep love beauty so add fresh flowers to your home or workplace, and enjoy the companionship of others this evening. There’s no need for competition. Gentleness and understanding bring success. Luck is strongest for Sheep, Hare, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.
Sat Feb 23 is an unpredictable Metal Monkey day when Mercury goes retrograde for the next three weeks. There could be problems with communication and electronic equipment, or travel delays or lost items. But the Moon trines Uranus for new excitement, to change your routine, try new things, and be with people who are different. The Moon sextiles Jupiter for good social times and group activity this evening. Luck is strongest for the Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.
Sun Feb 24 is a Metal Phoenix (Rooster) day that is fortunate in this Snake year because Phoenix and Snake are best friends (along with Ox). The Moon is opposite Venus for a pleasant and relaxing Sunday, but just don’t over indulge in food and drink. There is a desire for strong emotional contact. So time to release guilt, jealousy, and possessiveness to be reborn and shed the skins of the past. Enjoy life and don’t be irritating or pick a fight. Luck is strongest for Phoenix, Dragon, Snake, and Ox and during Phoenix hours 5 pm – 7 pm.
Good luck and have a great week,
