October 10, 2013 § Leave a comment
Mon Oct 14 is a Water Ox day when the Moon conjuncts Neptune and is opposite Mars. Moon and Neptune increase sensitivity, especially on a deep-feeling Water day. Empathy is much stronger. This is helpful because a Mars opposition can lead to disagreements, arguments over trivial matters, even accidents. Fortunately Sun trines Moon for balance to stay steady. Ox day luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) and during Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.
Tues Oct 15 is a lively Wood Tiger (green Tiger) day when Moon trines Mercury and Saturn. Can talk about your feelings. Intellect and emotions are well balanced. Saturn adds a realistic and practical approach that is very beneficial. Plus Mercury trines Jupiter that’s good for planning and seeing the big picture. Start to get organized now before Mercury goes retrograde on October 21 at 3:29 am PDT. Tiger day luck strong for Tiger, Horse, Dog, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.
Wed Oct 16 is a lucky Wood Rabbit day when the Moon trines Mercury and Jupiter in a grand trine for enjoyment of beauty, a good meal, and socializing tonight. You can talk your way to success under the influence of diplomatic Rabbit. Venus trines Uranus for something different in relationships that is a refreshing break from your routine. Rabbit day luck strong for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 am – 7 am.
Thurs Oct 17 is an active Fire Dragon (red Dragon) day when energy builds to the full Moon eclipse tomorrow. If you didn’t start to feel the full Moon energy yesterday on gentle Rabbit day, you will feel it now. Moon conjuncts Uranus bringing impulsive feelings and rash action. But that’s just fine with the Fire Dragon. Mercury conjuncts Saturn so could be too serious and a bit pensive. But Moon trines Venus so lighten up, see the best in others, and try to enjoy life. Under the influence of Venus it’s fortunate to add beauty to your surroundings and make feng shui adjustments. Dragon day luck strong for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.
Fri Oct 18 is a full Moon eclipse at 4:38 pm PDT on a double Snake day; a Fire Snake day in a Water Snake year. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen so you might not be clear about where your power lies. The full Moon is opposite the Sun and squares Jupiter so you could be indecisive about what direction to take. Time to seek answers and get clear about your life path. Fortunately there are many trines to bring ease including Sun trine Neptune for understanding, Mercury trine Jupiter for good communication, and Venus trine Uranus for new insights in relationships. Snake day luck strong for Snake, Monkey, Phoenix (Rooster), and Ox and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.
Sat Oct 19 is an Earth Horse day to lighten up after the lunar eclipse. Moon trines Mars and Pluto in a lucky grand trine to be assertive, strong, and courageous. Good to be active, athletic, and get outdoors. Mercury trines Jupiter for friendly feelings, optimism, and to expand your horizons. But Mars is opposite Neptune so not a good day for serious plans or discussions. Horse day luck strong for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.
Sun Oct 20 is an Earth Sheep day, the fortunate gold Sheep, when the Moon sextiles Jupiter to relax, enjoy, and go to a party! Sheep love luxury so teat yourself today. And Sheep love the flock so be social and enjoy the companionship of others. There are many harmonious trines for easier flow including Moon trine Pluto, Sun trine Neptune, Mercury trine Jupiter, Venus trine Uranus, and Mars trine Pluto. The Moon is opposite Mercury and Saturn so chat about your feelings now. Tomorrow Mercury begins a three week retrograde cycle until November 10. Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.
Good luck and have a great week!
