August 10, 2013 § Leave a comment
Mon Aug 12 is a strong Metal Dog (white Dog) day when all is well. The Metal Dog is called the Iron Dog in Tibetan astrology because this animal sign is so strong. The Moon joins summer’s grand trine of Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune for good fortune and an easier flow in life. Key today is Moon trine Neptune for inspiration, idealism & fight for the underdog. But the Moon conjuncts Saturn, could feel lonely so join the pack and bond with coworkers. Luck is strongest for the Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Tues Aug 13 is a sweet Metal Pig day. Moon trines Jupiter, part of an easy grand trine of planets, to feel great and enjoy life — although you might feel a bit lazy under Pig’s influence today and tonight. Mercury trines Uranus for new ideas, communication, lots of chatting and catching up with friends. Talking, sharing & eating together has a healing and therapeutic effect. Luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.
Wed Aug 14 is a passionate Water Rat (black Rat) day on a first quarter Moon. This waxing half Moon is time to get balanced, especially with finances on this Rat day. Rat is best friends with Monkey (and Dragon) and this is the month of the Monkey. So Monkey luck is with you today as Mercury still trines Uranus for new inventive ideas. Plus the Moon trines Mars and sextiles Venus for romance & excitement tonight. Luck is strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey, and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.
Thurs Aug 15 is a fortunate Water Ox day when your Moon trines Mercury and Uranus ideas can be put into action. Great for communicating at work, making plans & expressing your feelings. People are more curious and want to learn something new in this Monkey month. Some ideas might be unrealistic because Moon squares Neptune, but keep them flowing. Luck is strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Rooster (Phoenix) and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Fri Aug 16 is a passionate Wood Tiger (green Tiger) day when feelings and emotions are strong. People want to grow, expand their horizons, maybe even enjoy a weekend getaway. Sun trines Moon for good balance of heart and mind. Don’t hold back on this Wood Tiger day, a time for growth and new experiences. Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.
Sat Aug 17 is a gentle Wood Rabbit day to take care of yourself and others this weekend. Moon conjuncts Pluto for deep understanding. Plus Moon sextiles Saturn and Neptune; more calm & reflective, can balance emotional needs with duties and obligations. Good for a nice family meal, enjoying the arts, or feng shui enhancements that add beauty to your home. Luck is strongest for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 am – 7 am.
Sun Aug 18 is a mighty Fire Dragon (red Dragon) day! Energy builds to the full Moon on Tuesday Aug 20 at 6:45 pm PDT. If you didn’t start to feel the full Moon energy yesterday on Rabbit day,, today you will be feeling it. Moon is opposite Mars bringing a mixed bag of action and activity. Sun conjuncts Mercury to see only your point of view. So just ride the ups and downs of this Dragon day. Fortunately, Dragon days are lucky in this Monkey month because Dragon is best friends with Monkey (and Rat). Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.
Good luck and have a great week!
