Scorpio can be serious, but also is a lot of fun! The Eclipse can bring to light things that have been hidden, making this an opportune time for divination. Please call me at 415.642.8019 or email email@example.com to schedule your Eclipse reading.
WATER PIG MONTH
This new Moon begins the month of the Water Pig. Now is time for completion, but also time to appreciate the good life. So relax, enjoy, take care, and eat well in this Piggy month. Pig is opposite Snake so a Pig month is usually not considered fortunate in a Snake year. But this is the WATER Pig month in a WATER Snake year. The element Water creates a very harmonious flow of energy. Excellent for feng shui enhancements to increase your luck in relationships. My feng shui consultation info. The ease and flow of Pig month is luckiest for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep and the Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer.

URANUS in Aries squares PLUTO in Capricorn on the following dates: NOVEMBER 1 2013, April 21 2014 December 14 2014, and March 16 2015. Uranus symbolizes freedom, radical change, and liberation. Pluto (especially in Earth sign Capricorn) represents the conservative power structure. And the reigning PLUTOcracy, a government of wealthy men, has become globalized with drone strikes to keep predatory capitalism in power. The most recent series of Uranus square Pluto was between 1932 and 1934. In the U.S. it was the peak of the Great Depression and the invention of the atomic bomb. In Europe was the rise of Adolph Hitler.
In Asia, upheaval at this time lead to Japan and China at war by 1937 that set the stage for World War 2. In 1966 and 1967, Uranus and Pluto were conjunct three times (blended together but not squared) that started cultural and social revolutions all over the world. Uranus added passion and power to liberation movements and the social shifts that followed. The Summer of Love was here in San Francisco in 1967, and the Cultural Revolution in China raged during these years, especially in 1966 the year of the Fire Horse.
Many people know about current changes in the Chinese communist government, but don’t know recent Chinese history of the last century. I recommend the book THE BITTER SEA: Coming of Age in China Before Mao by Charles N. Li. Professor Li is a Metal Dragon who lives in Santa Barbara, CA. Don’t be put off by the bitter title, a translation of the Sanskrit Buddhist word samsara. THE BITTER SEA is a Uranian book whose story you will enjoy while learning about China!

2014 MERCURY RETROGRADES
Communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks three times a year. During the Mercury retrogrades in 2014 Wood Horse year, events can be quite chaotic. So hold on to the reins and ride out the wild energy!
2014 Mercury retrograde cycles:
February 6 – 28 in Air sign Aquarius. Good for think tank, new ideas, and networking. Mercury is exalted in Aquarius, the best sign for Mercury.
June 7 – July 1 in Air sign Gemini. Events fly by and energy is wildly fast paced in this double Horse month — Metal Horse month in Wood Horse year. Metal chops Wood so be careful of accidents.
October 4 – 25 in Air sign Libra. Relationships will be important under the influence of Libra. This retrograde gives us more opportunities to thoroughly communicate to loved ones.
