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.
Have a great week!
