Highlights this week are a productive Earth Rat day on Wednesday, an intense full Moon eclipse on Thursday at 9:25 pm PDT on a strong Metal Tiger day, and a pleasurable Rabbit day on Saturday.
Mon May 20 is an exciting Fire Dog day to live up to your ideals. Communication planet Mercury sextiles Uranus for creativity, innovation, and an element of genius. Follow your truth and do not compromise on this Dog day to create new ideas and methods. Uranus squares Pluto to release outdated ideas and life structures. Whatever is lost, it’s time to go. Luck is strongest for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Tues May 21 is a harmonious Fire Pig day when the Moon trines Mercury and Venus. It’s easier to get along with others, conversations flow, and make some time for relaxation or entertainment. Enjoy good food and drink but just don’t over indulge. A great day for mothering, nurturing, and taking care. Good to clean your home and office before the full Moon eclipse on Thursday. Luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.
Wed May 22 is a fortunate Earth Rat (yellow Rat) day when the Moon trines Jupiter and Neptune. People are more generous and concerned about the welfare of others so OK to ask for a raise or promotion. Plus imagination is stimulated so good timing for a Rat-pack think tank to share ideas and plans. Coworkers are more empathetic and work well in a group. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey, and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.
Thurs May 23 is a pragmatic Earth Ox day when the pace of life slows down as the Moon blends with Saturn. OK if you feel a bit lonely or not connected with others, or frustrated with life in general. Stay strong and do your work on this Ox day, and be grateful that you even have work to do. And keep your innermost thoughts to yourself at this time. Don’t make a small problem a big problem, especially with domestic issues. Luck is strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Rooster and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Fri May 24 is an intense Metal Tiger (white Tiger) day and a full Moon eclipse! The Sun and Moon square Neptune so if feeling discouraged, confused, or just not clear about life direction then avoid making decisions or signing contracts. Plus the Moon is opposite Mars making it easy to lose your temper or be irritated by little things especially on a Tiger day. Fortunately Mercury blends with Venus and Jupiter to appreciate art, beauty, and the good things you do have in life, and for a better and more comprehensive understanding of the big picture. Good to travel, stay active, or plan a weekend getaway. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.
Sat May 25 is a Metal Rabbit day, the lucky white Rabbit. Time to lighten up as the intensity of yesterday’s eclipse is forgotten. The Moon is opposite Venus for social activities, a lively party, and enjoyment of nature. Plus the Moon trines Uranus for something different this weekend, new excitement in unusual surroundings, or activities with new people. Today is also fortunate for feng shui improvements that add beauty to your home. Luck is strongest for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 am – 7 am.
Sun May 26 Water Dragon (black Dragon) day. The Sun squares Neptune so if your vitality is low, fine to retreat and seek some quiet time for rest. The Moon is opposite Jupiter for benevolence and generosity, but also brings a drive for personal freedom especially on an independent Dragon day when no one wants to be told what to do. The Moon is also opposite Mercury that could create a conflict between reason and emotion so avoid signing contracts, making firm plans, or believing in nonsensical dreams. Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.
Good luck and have a great week,
