April 15 – 21, 2013 The Week in Chinese Astrology
April 14, 2013 § 1 Comment
Highlights this week are an easy Pig day on Monday to start your work week, avoid conflict on testy Wood Tiger Thursday, and lucky double Fire Dragon on Saturday!
Mon April 15 is a pleasant Metal Pig day when the Moon is void of course so start your week slow and easy. Fortunately the Moon is in a lucky star sextile to the Sun, Venus, and Mars! You can keep a positive outlook and not get caught up in the usual turmoil and rush of events on a Monday. Love affairs and relationships in general flow more smoothly, rapport and communication are good, and people are united their aims and goals. Under Pig’s influence, feelings are open, sincere, and honest. Luck is strongest for Pig, Rabbit, Tiger, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.
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!
