February 24, 2013 § Leave a comment
Highlights this week are the full Moon on Monday, the first full Moon of this Water Snake year; a solidly grounded yet spiritual Water Ox day on Thursday; and a double Tiger breakthrough day on Friday!
Monday February 25 is a full Moon, the first full Moon in this Water Snake year. Today is a lucky day to express yourself and stay strong in your point of view because it is a Water Dog day in the month of the Wood Tiger. Dog and Tiger are best friends plus Water is the mother of Wood, meaning that Water helps Wood (plants) to grow. The Sun and full Moon make a strong aspect to planet of opportunity Jupiter, giving you energy to help get ahead while still feeling generous with others. You can be successful going it alone, but group efforts can also succeed. Tonight the full Moon trines Pluto for the honesty that Dog cherishes and the depth of experience that Tiger needs. Luck is strongest for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Tuesday February 26 is a sensitive Water Pig day to trust your feelings and intuition, and to be less judgmental of others. Be open to new ideas because communication planet Mercury blends with power planet Mars for mental and intellectual activity. Fine for new learning or discovery, but the Moon is opposite both Mercury and Mars so people can feel like debating or being argumentative. Your heart could tell you one thing while your mind says another. Fortunately Pig’s kind-hearted and gentle nature can smooth over communication difficulties. Luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.
Wednesday February 27 is an ambitious Wood Rat day to plan, structure, and set goals. The Moon is opposite Uranus that can be inspiring for new ideas and projects, but don’t get too excitable or make big decisions or commitments that cannot later be changed. Uranus brings the desire for freedom, to vary your routine, and for a change of pace making tonight a fun time for some mid-week socializing or entertainment. Plus the Moon trines Jupiter this evening for easy enjoyment and a pleasant sense of well being. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.
Thursday February 28 is a solid Wood Ox day to get grounded and stay strong in your endeavors. The Moon aspects Pluto to really figure out what you want, and what makes people tick. If others try to manipulate you, they will not be successful under the influence of the strong Ox. On a more spiritual level, Venus blends with Neptune for refined love and spirituality or a powerful soul union with others, especially on this Water Ox day in this Water Snake year. Ox and Snake are best friends, and the element Water brings depth of feelings and sensitivity. Luck is strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Rooster and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Friday March 1 is double Tiger; a Fire Tiger day in a Wood Tiger month! The element Wood is the mother of Fire ( Wood helps Fire burn more brightly) making this a breakthrough day for creativity. Sun sextiles Pluto and trines Saturn to seize opportunity for change and improvement, yet not lose what you’ve accomplished in the past. You can build on your existing foundation. Moon trines Neptune and Venus tonight for added creativity and self expression, plus enjoyment and appreciation of fine food and drink. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.
Saturday March 2 is a sentimental and expressive Fire Rabbit day. The Moon trines the Sun for pleasant encounters, life can flow more easily, and romance is lucky. The Moon trines Mercury to talk about emotions and listen sympathetically to others, especially under Hare’s influence of keen diplomatic skills. Today is a fortunate time to write letters, keep in touch, and let others know how you feel about them. Tonight is perfect for a small romantic dinner or intimate date. Luck is strongest for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Hare hours 5 am – 7 am.
Sunday March 3 is a grand Earth Dragon day for activity and socializing.The Moon trines Mars for more courage and confidence, which is natural for the Dragon. You can work as the leader or work independently. Either way, you’re ready for action. But now is better for short projects not long-term goals.The Moon squares Neptune bringing an inclination for daydreams and fantasies, a favorite pastime of dreamer Dragon. But this can bring added awareness to your environment. You might not always be in touch with reality, but fun for a party or adventure! Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.
Have a great week!
