Mon April 29 is a forceful Wood Ox day for courage of your convictions. The Moon trines the Sun and Mars for general good fortune and strength. Health should be strong, but if not focus on optimum health. Then you will stronger for work because Ox is a hard worker.

Tues April 30 is a passionate red Fire Tiger day. The Moon blends with Pluto for power struggles, especially in relationships. So try to compromise and find a balance of power. No big battles today because Tiger is not a good loser. Fortunately the Moon trines Venus making Tiger a lover not a fighter! Especially don’t start fighting late tonight when Mars opposes Saturn. Be snug in bed instead, maybe cuddled up with your big pussy cat Tiger. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Wed May 1. Spring is here on a lively Fire Rabbit day. The Sun trines Pluto for intense and powerful emotional experiences, and investigation brings rewards. But Moon squares Mars and Saturn so can be fussy or argumentative. On Rabbit’s day you can win by being diplomatic and a friend to everyone. Rabbit loves art and beauty so a good day for feng shui adjustments to redo, remodel, and enhance your environment. Luck is strongest for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 am – 7 am.

Thur May 2 is double Dragon time: an Earth Dragon day, the yellow Dragon whose body is the Earth, during the Fire Dragon month. Events have a fated quality, a sense of instant karma. Fortunately the Moon is in very harmonious aspects to Uranus for innovative creativity, the Sun for robust health, Venus for love luck, and Jupiter for sudden opportunity.

Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.

Fri May 3 is a shamanic double Snake day; an Earth Snake day in this Water Snake year. Time to slow down and really listen. The Moon blends with Neptune for heightened intuition and sensitivity. Find quiet time for dreams, fantasy, or reflection. Mercury sextiles Neptune for artistic imagination and to be more tuned in to your environment. You can have clear contact with the minds of others, and feel deeply empathetic. An excellent day for divination. Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Rooster (Phoenix) and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.

Sat May 4 is a strong-willed and strong-minded Metal Horse day when no one wants to be told what to do! But there’s lots of luck to be had as the Moon sextiles the Sun, Mars, and Pluto for strength, vitality, and feeling like you can take on the world and win. Tonight’s fun for dancing, love-making, and new excitement. Just don’t overdo it late night when the Moon squares Jupiter. Luck is strongest for Horse, Tiger, Dog, and Sheep and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Sun May 5 is a Metal Sheep day when people are stronger and more powerful than they appear to be. Mars trines Pluto for creative change, and to lay the framework for transformation and new growth. But the Moon sextiles Venus for beauty, relaxation, and creativity instead of work. The Metal Sheep likes accomplishments and achievement, but all Sheep prefer the lazy Venus influence whereby self betterment and chores are put on hold in favor of buying flowers and enjoying a lovely meal. Luck is strongest for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.

Have a great week,

Susan

12 Chinese animals

Highlights this week are a lucky Monkey day on Wednesday, an insightful and penetrating full Moon eclipse on Thursday, and a powerful Wood Rat day on Sunday.

Monday April 22 an Earth Horse day when the Moon is changing signs so it’s easy to lose focus. Plus Venus is opposite Saturn and that could cause conflict between your sense of discipline and duty (Saturn) and desire to enjoy life and take it easy (Venus). Sensual Earth Horse definitely prefers the way of Venus! Horse would much rather run free, explore, and not be too serious. But a sense of duty will prevail so do the work, even if you’re not feeling very enthusiastic about it today. Luck is strongest for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Tuesday April 23 energy is more balanced and harmonious on this lovely Earth Sheep day. Mercury is in a lucky star sextile with Jupiter tonight for good communication, fun amusement, a movie, or time with a good book. The Moon squares Pluto and is opposite Uranus for something different with some new ideas, even self analysis. Just keep your interactions on the lighter side of things as energy builds to the full Moon eclipse on Thursday. Luck is strongest for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.

Wednesday April 24 is a lucky Metal Monkey day (white Monkey) when anything can happen! A Monkey day is very magical during this Dragon month because Monkey and Dragon are best friends. The Sun sextiles Neptune for more mystical concerns and understanding, the Moon trines Jupiter for warmth and affection, plus Venus trines Pluto for passionate feelings and good fortune in love and romance. Revealing the inner depths of your soul impresses others. Luck is strongest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.

Thursday April 25 is a is a full Moon eclipse on a strong Metal Rooster day. You might feel serious because this full Moon blends with Saturn. Time to focus and face reality, which is fortunate in this insightful and penetrating Water Snake year. An eclipse is an absence of light when the “shadow” is seen so luck is with you to remove false perceptions. Plus this full Moon trines Neptune and sextiles Pluto to see truthfully to facilitate your best growth and transformation. Luck is strongest for Rooster, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Rooster hours 5 pm – 7 pm.

Friday April 26 is a sensitive Water Dog day when the Moon is opposite Venus for pleasant interactions and less intensity than yesterday’s eclipse. There is a desire for companionship (Dog loves the pack) so be social tonight and reach out to others. Mars sextiles Neptune for increased kindness and sensitivity, and is also good for contemplation and consideration, not the usual Dog fight for right. Luck is strongest for the Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.

Saturday April 27 is a dreamy Water Pig day for fantasies and illusions when the Moon squares Neptune. We are more sensitive to the environment and react through subconscious responses. Good to eat out, lighten up, and just enjoy life. And the Moon trines Uranus so it’s favorable to follow your intuition, and to make feng shui improvements in your home to feel better. Plus Moon trining Uranus often indicates a fortunate surprise! Luck is strongest for Pig, Rabbit, Tiger, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.

Sunday April 28 is a powerful Wood Rat day in this Dragon month to plan, set goals, and have breakthroughs. Rat and Dragon are very compatible and make a great team. The Moon trines Mercury to be in touch with your feelings and express them to others. There’s a balance between emotions and rational intellect that’s good for planning with foresight to set goals. The Sun is opposite Saturn to slow down and focus, taking into consideration any realistic limitations. Yet you can be compassionate as the Moon makes an aspect to Jupiter bringing benevolence and generosity towards others. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

FULL MOON ECLIPSE in SCORPIO

Thursday April 25, 2013 at 12:57 pm PDT is a full Moon in the passionate and intense Water sign Scorpio. You might feel pessimistic because this full Moon blends with Saturn in Scorpio. An eclipse is an absence of light when the “shadow” is seen making this an opportune time to gain insight to facilitate your best growth and transformation.

Scorpio is a very powerful sign so there could be issues of power; balancing power in relationships, and finding power to succeed in life. Reflections on how to use power wisely are rewarding in this penetrating Water Snake year.

Plus this full Moon trines Neptune and sextiles Pluto to stimulate your creative imagination, and brings more empathy and the desire to help others. Nothing is superficial, and there is an attraction to the occult or hidden. Secrets can be revealed, especially under the influence of Scorpio.

For clarity during this eclipse, you call me at 415.642.8019 or send an email to susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot or astrology reading.

DAY OF THE PHOENIX

This full Moon eclipse occurs on the day of the Phoenix (Rooster) during the month of the Dragon in this Snake year. This is lucky because Phoenix and Snake are best friends. Both of these signs are dedicated to growth, rebirth, and transformation. Phoenix and Dragon are also very compatible. Together they are a symbol of marriage, and the unity of yin and yang. The energy of this full Moon eclipse is felt most deeply by the Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer and those born in Phoenix, Snake, and Dragon years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

That Voudou That You Do

April 15, 2013 § Leave a comment

Legba = Mercury

This morning at 7 am I received a telephone call from a man in Croatia. He said he found my web site online and asked if I do Voudou. I told him that I was familiar with Voudou and the religions of the African diaspora; Voudou in Haiti, Santeria in the Caribbean, and Condoble and Macumba in Brazil but that I would not do a Voudou spell for him as a service. But I could assist him with a tarot card reading for clarity about how to take care of himself and make choices if he thought that he needs protection from Voudou.

He sounded panicked and told me that money was no object and that he had $120,000 dollars. I said my fee for a tarot reading is $125, not $120,000, and repeated that I am not available to do a Voudou spell for him. I asked if he was calling from Zagreb. “Zagreb?” his energy lifted immediately. “Have you been to Zagreb?” I have not, but my books are published in Croat. He then started a fit of coughing and managed to croak out, “I smoke too much.” I said he would feel less stressed right away if he stopped smoking, but I understand because many Europeans smoke.

Then I heard a commotion in the background as he told me to hang on just one minute, which became a few minutes of me hearing arguments. So I hung up the phone. I hope he can work out his issues and find peace, but I’m not a hexer for hire.

Tues April 16 is a perceptive Water Rat day to follow your feelings while staying focused on your goals. The Moon trines both Neptune and Saturn to trust your intuition and psychic hits about things, yet your emotions are under control to not get lost in fantasy. The Moon squares Mercury and Uranus so it might be challenging to tell others what you know is true, so best to keep your discoveries to yourself. The Moon is opposite Pluto tonight so hold back on intense emotions to prove your point, even if you are correct. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Wed April 17 is a powerful Water Ox day with an added boost of energy because the Sun blends with Mars. Now is fortunate to start new projects and accomplish tasks. You can work independently by yourself and not take orders from anyone — or work as a team because Oxen are great team players. Get out and do some sports or activities, not just sit at your desk all day. The Ox influence helps you stay steady, but be aware to avoid an accidents with sharp objects or machinery due to the aspect with planet Mars. Luck is strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Rooster (Phoenix) and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.

Thurs April 18 is a waxing half Moon on the day of the Wood Tiger day. Half Moons are a time for balance so use Tiger’s strength to take care, clean up, and get organized. The Moon squares the Sun, Venus, and Mars for challenges, impatience with routine, irritability, and needless disputes. So no battles! Fortunately peace can be made this evening when Venus sextiles Neptune for creativity and romance, and the Moon trines Mercury to be in touch with your feelings. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Fri April 19 is a sweet and sentimental Wood Rabbit day. The Moon squares Saturn so you might feel a bit lonely or nostalgic, but Rabbits can be sentimental. Fortunately the Moon trines Uranus and sextiles Jupiter for new ideas and activities. You can make lovely changes to your personal surroundings and delightful feng shui improvements with fresh flowers or objects of beauty. You can persuade others to your point of view, and it’s good to be with old friends or in familiar surroundings. Luck is strongest for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 am – 7 am.

Sat April 20 is dynamic double Fire Dragon energy: a Fire Dragon day in a Fire Dragon month! Mercury blends with Uranus for an element of genius and a brilliant stroke of good luck. The Moon trines the Sun and Mars for harmony with self and others, increased vitality, plus more courage and confidence. Activities are successful and group activities are rewarding. Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.

Sun April 21 is a double Snake day; a Fire Snake day in a Water Snake year. The Moon trines Venus and Pluto for romance and appreciation of loved ones. Time to coil up and squeeze! But Mercury squares Pluto so do not become obsessed with one idea or thought. Do not force your point of view or try to coerce others. Snake is very powerful, but dominance is not a good use of Snake energy today. Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Rooster (Phoenix) and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.

Have a great week!

NEW MOON in ARIES begins FIRE DRAGON month

April 9, 2013 § 2 Comments

Fire Dragon

NEW MOON IN ARIES

Wednesday April 10 at 2:35 am PDT is a new Moon in the dynamic Fire sign Aries. Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, and Uranus are all in Aries so take action and be the leader not the follower. This new Moon is a very fortunate time to start new endeavors and pursue goals. It’s fortunate to socialize, network, and expand your circle. Love and romance are favored so be innovative, creative, and take risks — even though a new love affair could fizzle fast. Still, risks are rewarded and the time is now.

FIRE DRAGON MONTH

This new Moon begins the month of the Fire Dragon when springtime energy changes to the Dragon pursuit of power. No one can tell a Fire Dragon what to do. Fire Dragons might be impulsive and make mistakes, but then move right on to the next adventure. Plus this new Moon is on a Fire Horse day to follow your gut instincts just like a real horse. This month of the Fire Dragon, followed by the month of the Fire Snake in May, are the two most powerful months of this Snake year 2013. Luck is strongest for the Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and for those born in Horse, Tiger, Dragon, and Monkey years and on the new Moon during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am and Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Happy new Moon!

New Moon begins the month of the Fire Dragon

New Moon begins the month of the Fire Dragon

Highlights this week are a complex DOUBLE SNAKE day on Tuesday, a new Moon on Wednesday at 2:35 am PDT that starts the exciting month of the FIRE DRAGON, and transformation planet PLUTO goes retrograde on Friday.

Monday April 8 starts the week with a bang on a busy Wood Dragon day. The element Wood is active and growth oriented. But use the dynamic energy of this Dragon day to complete projects instead of initiating new endeavors because today and tomorrow are a balsamic (dark) Moon that ends this lunar cycle. Make plans for the new Moon on Wednesday that starts the month of the Fire Dragon, followed by the month of the Fire Snake in May. These will be the two most powerful months of this Snake year 2013. Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.

Tuesday April 9 is a double Snake day; a Wood Snake day in a Water Snake year. This is harmonious because Water helps Wood (plants) to grow. Take care today and quietly finish as much work as you can before the new Moon tomorrow. The Moon blends with Uranus this morning for innovative but stay patient and steady like a Snake. Plus the Moon squares Pluto so do not argue with anyone; quietly observe like a wise Snake and simply go about your business. Tonight the Moon sextiles Jupiter for a lovely and relaxing evening. Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Rooster (Phoenix) and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.

Wednesday April 10 at 2:35 am PDT is a new Moon that begins the month of the Fire Dragon! No one can tell a Fire Dragon what to do. Fire Dragons might be impulsive and make mistakes, but then move right on to the next adventure. Under the influence of the Fire Dragon, time to take action and be a leader not a follower. This new Moon blends with the Sun, Venus, and Mars in a very fortunate pack to start new endeavors and pursue goals. You can be recharged for the month ahead with new energy and vitality, plus strength and power to focus. It’s fortunate to socialize, network, and expand your circle. Love and romance are lucky so be innovative and creative to take risks, even though a new love affair could fizzle fast. This new Moon is on a Fire Horse day to follow your gut instincts just like a real horse. Luck is strongest for the Horse, Tiger, Dragon, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am and Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Thursday April 11 is a more peaceful Fire Sheep day when the Moon sextiles Neptune for creativity, art appreciation, and kindness to others. Now is a good day to set the tone for the lunar month with feng shui improvements or to add beauty with fresh flowers or bright colors. The Moon is opposite Saturn and trines Pluto so more serious and sensitive. Just lighten up on this pleasant Sheep day and take a break from your worries. Luck is strongest for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.

Friday April 12 is an Earth Monkey day that brings luck and good fortune because Monkey and Dragon are best friends, and this is a Dragon month. Plus the Earth Monkey, the Gold Monkey, has Monkey ingenuity coupled with the practical qualities of the element Earth. Today the planet of transformation Pluto goes retrograde today until September 21, two days before autumn equinox. Pluto retrograde will add depth and gravity to all actions and encounters. This is ideal in a deep Water Snake year, the time to heal, shed your skin, and rebuild. But Pluto retrograde could be frustrating if projects take longer than anticipated to get to the bottom of things, not shallow or just on the surface. Luck is strongest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.

Saturday April 13 is an Earth Rooster (gold Phoenix) day for energy to start your weekend and get a lot done, including home improvement. All Rooster days can fortunate in this Snake year because Rooster and Snake are best friends. But today is especially fortunate for communication, travel, or a quick getaway because the Moon sextiles Mercury. Good to make lists and find satisfaction as you check off your accomplishments. But stay focused and not too dreamy because the Moon squares Neptune so it’s best not to wing it! Luck is strongest for Rooster, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Rooster hours 5 pm – 7 pm.

Sunday April 14 is a fierce Metal Dog day, and Dog is opposite Dragon. Dragon can be a dreamer whereas Dog is far more realistic. Fortunately the Moon sextiles Uranus to shake things up and bring excitement but in a good way for new experiences. Adding to the good fortune is the Moon blending with Jupiter for a party, celebration, good times — or just supportive feelings and generosity in general instead of a Dog crusade for the truth. Luck is strongest for the Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.

Have a great week!

Love,

Susan
