May 4, 2013 § Leave a comment
Highlights this week are a new Moon eclipse on Thursday at 5:28 pm PDT that starts the month of the Fire Snake, a fun and lucky for love Friday night, and a very harmonious Sunday for Mother’s Day.
Monday May 6 is an interesting Water Monkey day (black Monkey) when the Moon blends with Uranus. Moods and opinions change quickly, people feel impulsive, and no one wants to follow routine. Plus Moon squares Pluto adding to the compulsiveness and sense of rebellion. Fortunately communication planet Mercury trines Pluto for an interest in what lies below the surface to arrive at understanding. Luck is strongest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.
Tuesday May 7 Mercury blends with the fiery red planet Mars so communicate with care. There is intellectual competitiveness and people can be defensive or say mean things especially on this Water Rooster day. So no pecking! Bickering is just not worth it as energy winds down to the new Moon on Thursday. Luck is strongest for Rooster, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Rooster hours 5 pm – 7 pm.
Wednesday May 8 is a solid Wood Dog day for strength of convictions and fair play. Moon sextiles Neptune for increased sensitivity to other people’s emotions. It’s comforting to be with friends and loved ones. Moon is opposite Pluto for profound emotions and deep sense of caring. If feeling guilty, jealousy, or other strange emotions it’s fortunate to talk about it with a counselor, healer, or loved one. Luck is strongest for the Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Thursday May 9 is a new Moon eclipse at 5:28 pm PDT that starts the month of the Fire Snake creating double Snake power: a Snake month in a Snake year! Passions and goals are strong as the Moon blends with Sun, Mercury, and Mars for a burst of new energy. Moon trines Pluto for intensity of emotions, and encounters are intimate not superficial. Today is a Wood Pig day but pacifist Pig’s energy is overwhelmed by the power of focused Snake. Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Rooster and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.
Fri May 10 is an engaging Fire Rat day when Moon blends with love planet Venus. Good to get out and socialize, people feel cheerful, it’s a great time for a party, and the intensity of yesterday’s eclipse is much lighter. Love relationships are lucky, and if single a new love can be discovered. Today is also fortunate for feng shui improvements that add beauty to your home. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey, and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.
Sat May 11 is a Fire Ox day that’s best for structure and stability, but Moon sextiles Uranus bringing the desire for something unique and different. Sun blends with Mercury for interesting conversations and opportunities to communicate what’s on your mind, but Moon squares Neptune so emotions are not clear and it’s easy to get lost in daydreams. Lighten up and try not to sign contracts or make binding commitments that cannot later be changed. Luck is strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Rooster and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Sun May 12 is strong Earth Tiger day on Mother’s Day. Fortunately Moon blends with Jupiter for all good things! People are more generous, feel uplifted, and have a sense that everything is fine. Good for spiritual insights and compassion. No one is easily angered even on a Tiger day because the Earth Tiger (yellow Tiger, or golden Tiger) is the most grounded and stable of all Tigers. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.
Have a great week!
