March 3, 2013 § Leave a comment
Highlights this week are the energy of the double Snake for balance and insight on Monday; possible communication problems on a Monkey day during Mercury retrograde on Thursday; a strong dose of the growth-oriented element Wood on Saturday; and plan a fun party when the Moon makes a strong aspect to Jupiter on Sunday, the final day of the lunar cycle!
Mon March 4 is a waning half Moon, a time for emotional balance. Today is also a double Snake day, a Snake day in a Snake year, adding insight and power to your feelings and observations. The Sun blends with Mercury so good to send letters and take care of paperwork. But on a deeper level, under the influence of the wise Snake, today is powerful for self examination, understanding of your surroundings, and interest in matters that speak to you through personal experience. Plus Venus makes an artistic aspect to Jupiter for appreciation of beauty, and connoisseur Snake loves all things beautiful. Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Phoenix (Rooster) and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.
Tues March 5 is a vital and strong day of the Metal Horse. Today can be very fortunate for action because this is a Tiger month. Horse and Tiger are highly compatible. But be aware of how you take action. The Moon squares Mars making it easy to be rash or get involved in a needless dispute. So keep your cool and let off steam through sports, exercise, or Horse’s favorite hobby — sex! The Moon sextiles Neptune tonight for increased intuition and interest in spiritual matters. Insights can arrive in your dreams. Luck is strongest for the Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.
Wed March 6 is an emotional Metal Sheep day when relationships are important. Love planet Venus sextiles Pluto so friendships matter, and emotions are sincere and deeply felt. Mercury blends with Venus so express your thoughts and feelings, and let others know how much you appreciate them and their influence in your life. An attitude of gratitude brings success. Just don’t get too intense on a Sheep day. Lighten up and enjoy a midweek happy hour or social times with friends tonight. Luck is strongest for Sheep, Hare, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.
Thurs March 7 is Water Monkey day that could bring communication problems in this Tiger month during Mercury retrograde. Monkey and Tiger are opposites so avoid taking sides or going to extremes. Fortunately Mercury sextiles Pluto so any blow ups or conflict have a therapeutic effect to quickly resolve difficulties and not hold a grudge. Plus the Moon sextiles Mars so work can be done well, either alone or in a group. You can come together for a common goal and purpose. Luck is strongest for the Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.
Fri March 8 is a Water Phoenix (Rooster) day that is fortunate in this Water Snake year because Phoenix and Snake are best friends (along with Ox). Plus the element Water of brings added sensitivity and kindness. The Moon trines Jupiter for a pleasant sense of well being and good rapport with others. There is concern for others outside your immediate circle. Saturn sextiles Pluto so you can withstand any tests of strength or of character, and could have a sense that you’ve survived obstacles from the past that are no longer issues in your life. Luck is strongest for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Phoenix hours 5 pm – 7 pm.
Sat March 9 is a Wood Dog day when right and wrong matter. Today is fortunate in that it is a Wood Dog day in a Wood Tiger month. This double dose of Wood brings added passion and enthusiasm. But it can also be polarizing so strive to see both sides of an issue. Fortunately Mercury aspects Jupiter so people are more optimistic and open minded. They can see the big picture and not focus on details or nitpicking. But do get the facts straight before moving forward with plans because the element Wood thrives on growth, change, and progress. Luck is strongest for the Dog, Hare, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm 9 pm.
Sun March 10 is a festive Wood Pig day that is ideal for a light-hearted party or easy get together. The Moon blends with Mercury and Neptune to be in touch with your feelings. There is increased empathy and awareness of the emotions of others. It’s easy to pick up on people’s moods. Note that the Moon sextiles Pluto this evening so if anyone becomes too serious or moody, encourage them to lighten up and enjoy! They’ll have all of Snake year 2013 for reflection and introspection, but give it a rest today. Energy winds down on this last day of the lunar cycle. The new Moon tomorrow starts the month of the Wood Hare. Luck is strongest for Pig, Hare, Tiger, and Sheep and during the hours of the Pig 9 pm – 11 pm.
Have a great week!
