November 29, 2013 § Leave a comment
Highlights this week are a new Moon on Monday that starts the month of the Wood Rat at 4:22 pm PST, the ongoing lucky Venus trine Mars for good fortune in relationships, a big Dragon Wednesday, and an appreciative double Snake Thursday.
Mon Dec 2 at 4:22 pm PST is a NEW MOON that starts the month of the Wood Rat. So put on your thinking cap! Rat month is excellent for learning new skills. Plus the Wood Rat is optimistic and industrious. Rat is considered a lucky sign in Chinese astrology because Rat is the first of the 12 animals of the Asian zodiac. The Sun and new Moon trine Uranus to try something new, travel, see the big picture. Venus trines Mars for luck in love. But the new Moon does square Neptune so perhaps odd moods, but answers can arrive in dreams. Good fortune on this new Moon is for all, and most strongly influences those born in Rat, Dragon, and Monkey years. Please contact me for your new Moon reading at www.susanlevitt.com. Happy new Moon!
Tues Dec 3 is a sensitive Water Rabbit day. Mercury sextiles Mars for mental work and planning, and is good for communication. Venus continues to trines Mars for luck in love. But Moon squares Mars for minor irritations or unnecessary difficulties with others. But all can be smoothed over with Rabbit’s natural sense of diplomacy. Rabbit day luck strong for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 – 7 am.
Wed Dec 4 is a powerful Wood Dragon (green Dragon) day. Dragon is best friends with Rat (and Monkey) so all Dragons have good fortune in a Rat month. Favorable Dragon days in this Wood Rat month are Dec 4, 16 and 28th. There’s energy for action and activity, problems can be solved. Venus continues to trines Mars for luck in love. Moon conjuncts Pluto for the intensity that Dragon thrives on. Sun trines Uranus for an element of genius. But Moon squares Uranus for Dragon unpredictability! Dragon day luck strong for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 – 9 am.
Thurs Dec 5 is a DOUBLE SNAKE day; a Wood Snake day in a Water Snake year. Now is lucky for love and friendships. Relationships matter to powerful Snake. Moon conjuncts Venus, trines Mars, and is opposite Jupiter for romance, love of art, and excitement in your relationships. Time to appreciate loved ones, and give a big hug on a double Snake day! Jupiter trines Saturn for stability. Snake day luck strong for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Phoenix (Rooster) and during Snake hours 9 – 11 am (triple Snake).
Fri Dec 6 is a Fire Horse day when the Moon sextiles Uranus, and the Sun and Mercury trine Uranus, for an element of genius. But applying that genius can be erratic on a Fire Horse day. And Mercury squares Neptune so communications aren’t always clear — or even delivered. But good day for distractions, a trip out of town, or outdoor adventure. The ongoing Uranus square Pluto transit brings out the rebel in non-conformist Horse. Horse day luck strong for Horse, Tiger, Dog, and Sheep and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.
Sat Dec 7 is a Fire Sheep day when the Moon sextiles the Sun to be at ease with self and others. Venus trines Mars for the romance, art, and artistry that Sheep enjoys. Mercury trines Uranus for something new, and fresh ideas. But Moon squares Saturn so don’t be a loner. Sheep do best in a flock. Mercury squares Neptune so don’t engage in a fight to show who is right or wrong. Leave that to Dog. Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.
Sun Dec 8 is an Earth Monkey day when the Moon conjuncts Neptune for heightened intuition, and increased sensitivity to your surroundings. The Moon squares Mercury so no need to explain, just follow your heart. But the Sun is unaspected so perhaps it’s not easy to find your center — especially if engaged in Monkey mind tail-chasing about the past. Mercury trines Uranus and squares Neptune for lively conversation. Very helpful on this Monkey day are the ongoing Venus trine Mars for love luck, and the ongoing Jupiter trine Saturn for stability. Uranus square Pluto brings out the rebel in leader Monkey. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.
Good luck and have a great week,
