Highlights this week are a new Moon on Friday at 5:34 pm PDT that begins the month of the Water Dog, a wild Dragon Saturday, and a deep double Snake Sunday.

Mon Sept 30 is a lovely Earth Pig day. The Earth Pig is the golden Pig who is fortunate and likes the good things in life. Moon squares Venus to enjoy and live large the way Pig likes it. But Moon conjuncts Mars can be argumentative. Plus Mercury conjuncts Saturn so lighten up any serious conversations on a Pig day. Sun is opposite Uranus and squares Pluto in a T-square so slow down and see the big picture. Luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.

Tues Oct 1 is a smart Metal Rat (white Rat) day. Mercury conjuncts Saturn and trines Neptune for serious thought coupled with inspirational new ideas and methods that Rat loves. But Moon is opposite Neptune so can have strange moods or feelings. Plus Venus squares Mars so stay steady in relationships. Not a day to analyze feelings because they change quickly. Luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey and during Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Wed Oct 2 is a strong Metal Ox day. Moon trines Pluto for increased sensitivity, and sextiles Saturn to be more serious today. You can get a lot accomplished even though Sun, Uranus, and Neptune are in a problematic T-square. Good day for Oxen team work to complete projects before the new Moon on Friday. Luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.

Thurs Oct 3 is a deep-feeling Water Tiger day, the intense black Tiger. The Moon opposite Uranus and square Neptune T-square continues so best to slow down — which is not Tiger’s favorite activity. Mercury trines Neptune for creative imagination, and Moon sextiles Venus for love and romance. Not the best day for new endeavors as energy winds down to new Moon tomorrow. Luck strong for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Fri Oct 4 is a new Moon at 5:34 pm PDT that begins the month of the Water Dog, or black Dog. A Water month is lucky in this Water Snake year, creating an easier flow of energy. The element Water brings sensitivity and depth of feelings. Dog values honesty, loyalty, and integrity. Uphold these Dog values this month, especially in relationships, to achieve success. Today is a gentle Water Rabbit day to create a peaceful environment because Rabbit loves beauty. Dog month luck is most powerful for Dog, Horse, Tiger, and Rabbit.

Sat Oct 5 is an active Wood Dragon (green Dragon) day with a lot going on! Moon sextiles Mars for action, plus Sun and Moon square Jupiter to do things in a big Dragon way. But Sun, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto are in a grand cross so you must slow down. Don’t push the river. Venus squares Mars and Neptune so relationships could be problematic if your partnership expectations are too high. Entertainment or a day out of town helps release pressure. Luck strong for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.

Sun Oct 6 is a double Snake day; a Wood Snake day in this Water Snake year. Moon conjuncts Mercury and Saturn for deep insights and reflection. Good to carve out some quiet time if possible. Moon and Mercury trine Neptune for creativity and new understanding. Answers can arrive in dreams. Good to heal after the yesterday’s Dragon energy if feeling overwhelmed. Luck strong for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Phoenix (Rooster) and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.

Good luck and have a great week!

Sept 9 – 15, 2013 The Week in Chinese Astrology

September 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

white craneHighlights this week are three magical trines to Neptune on Earth Tiger Monday, a very fortunate grand trine on Metal Dragon Wednesday, and Wood Monkey Sunday with planetary crosses not good for team work.

Mon Sept 9 is an Earth Tiger day, the lucky yellow Tiger or gold Tiger. The Earth Tiger has the calmest temper of all Tigers due to the stabilizing Earth influence. And today you will need that Earth influence to stay steady! The Moon conjuncts Saturn and squares Mars. This can feel very frustrating like driving with the brakes on. You could also feel alienated or isolated from others. But your intuition is very keen today with three trines to inspirational creative Neptune. Perhaps a day better for dreams than Tiger action. Luck is strong for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Tues Sept 10 is an Earth Rabbit day. Rabbit is opposite Phoenix (Rooster) and this is the month of the Phoenix. Try to not be contrary. Venus conjuncts Saturn that could be trying in relationships. Strong partnerships will survive but weak ones will be challenged. Now is a time for clearing out relationships that you’ve outgrown over time. Try Rabbit diplomacy instead of a Phoenix argument to justify your actions. Sun sextiles Moon for healing so make time to take care under the influence of the gentle Rabbit. Luck is strong for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 am – 7 am.

Wed Sept 11 is a Metal Dragon (white Dragon) day. Moon trines Mars and Uranus in a lucky grand trine! Can be strong, courageous, confident, and stand your ground. Fortunate to ask for a raise, promotion, or bonus. Moon, Mars, and Uranus in a grand trine brings an easy flow of energy. This helps with the driving with the brakes on feeling because Mars still squares Saturn. Fortunate for feng shui enhancements. Luck is strong for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.

Thurs Sept 12 is a penetrating double Snake day, a Metal Snake day in this Water Snake year. Snake day is fortunate in a Phoenix month because Snake and Phoenix are best friends along with Ox. Sun squares waxing half Moon so strive for balance today. Mercury is opposite Uranus and squares Pluto. Better to be contemplative and not speak too hastily. Snake loves persuasion so it won’t work to force your point of view. Slow down on a double Snake day. Luck is strong for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Phoenix and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.

Fri Sept 13 is a Water Horse (black Horse) day when Moon sextiles Venus, Saturn, and Neptune. Be social, have fun, and be more romantic. OK to spend time with friends. But also OK to be independent if you feel like it. Are more sensitive to your surroundings. Moon conjuncts Pluto for deep insights and depth of meaning. Luck is strongest for Horse, Tiger, Dog, and Sheep and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Sat Sept 14 is a friendly and sociable Water Sheep day. Sun trines Moon for inner peace and balance that Sheep loves. Mars trines Uranus for new adventures and personal growth. Venus conjuncts Saturn and trines Neptune so relationships are important. Can bond deeply and trust. Luck is strongest for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.

Sun Sept 15 is a Wood Monkey day when no one wants to be told what to do. Moon is opposite Mars in a challenging square to Venus conjunct Saturn. So not good for team work! Mercury is opposite Uranus and squares Jupiter and Pluto in another challenging square. Try to put the brakes on if energy gets too active. Moon trines Mercury to talk about feelings. And Moon sextiles Uranus for innovation that Monkey loves. Luck is strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.

Good luck and have a great week!

New Moon in Virgo begins Phoenix Month

NEW MOON IN VIRGO

Thursday September 5 at 4:36 am PDT is a new Moon in the Earth sign Virgo. Sun, Moon, and Mercury are all in Virgo that’s excellent for communication and new ideas. Plus Sun and Moon in Virgo make a harmonious sextile to Jupiter that is very positive, and one of the few transits that can truly be considered lucky. Jupiter aspects bring a positive and insightful frame of mind to succeed. And under the influence of Jupiter it’s fortunate for group activities that expand your circle.

But Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto are in a cardinal T-square whereby actions are slowed down or delayed. Virgo rules the sixth house of health and service making this lunar cycle the ideal time to take care of yourself and others. So if you’re feeling worn out, use the energy of this new Virgo Moon to regain balance and maintain your health. It’s fortunate in this Water Snake year to slow down this autumn to preparation for a quiet winter when Snake hibernates.

METAL PHOENIX MONTH

This new Moon begins the month of the Metal Phoenix, also called the Metal Rooster. The element Metal is strong, adding focus to the Metal Phoenix. A Phoenix month is lucky in this Snake year because Snake, Phoenix, and Ox are most compatible together. They make an astrological grand trine just as they do in their Western astrololgy signs: Smart Phoenix = Virgo. Sensuous Snake = Taurus. Steady Ox = Capricorn.

Time to be reborn under the influence of the Phoenix! If you haven’t shed your skin to the new you in this Snake year, this lunar month is perfect for healing and transformation. Know you can always contact me by phone at 415.642.80189 in San Francisco or email susan@susanlevitt.com for guidance from astrology, tarot, and feng shui. Luck for new opportunities is for everyone in this Phoenix month, and is strongest for the Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix, Ox, and Snake years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan
