August 31, 2013 § Leave a comment

12 Chinese animalsHighlights this week are a double Monkey Tuesday, a new Moon on Thursday that begins the month of the Metal Rooster, and lots of activity on Fire Rat Saturday!

Mon Sept 2 is a Metal Sheep day that could be trying. The Moon conjuncts Mars and squares Saturn. Moon conjunct Mars could bring irritability and bad temper. With that Saturn square, can feel isolated and alienated. Fortunately Sheep’s gentle and kind influence helps for healing conversations, diplomacy, and peace. Plus Saturn trines Neptune for realistic understanding. Sheep day luck is strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.

Tues Sept 3 is a double Monkey day; a Water Monkey day in a Metal Monkey month. Mars squares Saturn so can feel like driving with the brakes on. Just slow down, especially as the lunar cycle wanes to new Moon on Thursday. You can start fresh on the new Moon. Jupiter squares Uranus for luck on a Monkey day, but still be cautious. Moon sextiles Venus to be social and enjoy pleasant time with friends so lighten up. Monkey day luck is strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.

Wed Sept 4 is a Water Phoenix (Rooster) day to get organized and focused as the lunar cycle completes. Sun and Moon trine Pluto for intensity, but can learn a lot and have powerful experiences and insights. Mars still squares Saturn, that driving with the brakes on feeling, so use any nervous energy to clean, restore, and prepare for the new Moon’s fresh energy. Saturn still trines Neptune for realistic understanding. Phoenix day luck is strongest for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Phoenix hours 5 pm – 7 pm.

Thurs Sept 5 is a new Moon at 4:36 am PDT that begins the month of the Metal Phoenix. The element Metal is strong, adding focus to the Metal Phoenix. A Phoenix month is very fortunate in this Water Snake year because Snake, Phoenix, and Ox are most compatible together. If you haven’t shed your skin to the new you in this Snake year, this lunar month is ideal for healing and transformation. Sun and Moon trine Jupiter for luck, good feelings, and energy for accomplishments on this Wood Dog day when integrity is important. Dog day luck is strongest for the Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.

Fri Sept 6 is a nice Wood Pig day. Lighten up take a break! Moon conjuncts Mercury so can communicate feelings. Sun sextiles Uranus for new experiences that increase insights, plus curiosity and imagination are stimulated. Be social tonight and share with others. Pig day luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.

Sat Sept 7 is an active Fire Rat day with a lot going on. The Moon squares Jupiter and Pluto, and is opposite Uranus. Moon square Jupiter is actually a good square that brings benevolence and generosity. But Moon square Pluto could be compulsive or not aware of actions. Moon opposite Uranus can be emotionally excitable and jumping to the wrong conclusions. Fortunately Moon sextiles Mars so you can get accomplish tasks, either alone or with others, and have courage and are self reliant. Rat day luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey, and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Sun Sept 8 is a Fire Ox day when the Moon exactly conjuncts Venus. Good to socialize, people are cheerful, and a good time for a party. Love relationships are good and a new love is fortunate. Neptune trines Sun, Moon, and Saturn for a more spiritual view of life, increased sensitivity, and balance of real and ideal. An Ox day is fortunate in this Phoenix month, and Ox day luck is strong for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.

Good luck and have a great week!
