December 14, 2013 § Leave a comment
Mon Dec 16 is a powerful Fire Dragon (red Dragon) day! Energy builds to the full Moon tomorrow. If you didn’t start to feel the full Moon energy yesterday on gentle Rabbit day, you will feel it now. Sun and Moon are opposite Mercury to follow your heart instead of your mind, just the way passionate Dragon likes it. Note that Mars is opposite Uranus so avoid accidents and be extra careful when driving. Dragon day luck strong for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.
Tues Dec 17 is a DOUBLE SNAKE FULL MOON at 1:28 am PST! Today is a double Snake day: a Fire Snake day in a Water Snake year. Moon trines Neptune for insights and spiritual connections. This full Moon is opposite both the Sun and Mercury. Your head and heart could be in conflict. Your head convinces you of one reality while your heart whispers another. Logic does not prevail, and affairs might not run smoothly. Adding to the full Moon intensity is Mars opposite Uranus squares Pluto, making a big T-square. Squares can set the stage for tension, irrational behavior, or childish impulsiveness. Fortunately, Jupiter trines Saturn to create new structures without losing your old ones. You can work slowly and patiently to build. More good fortune is that Uranus goes direct today, the planet of revolution, folly, and unexpected surprises. Uranus has been retrograde since July 17. Now that Uranus is back on track, events can be unique, different, and very freeing. People are able to express new ideas and expand their circle of friends. Snake day luck strong for Snake, Monkey, Phoenix (Rooster), and Ox and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am (triple Snake).
Wed Dec 18 is a lively Earth Horse (yellow Horse) day to lighten up after the intense full Moon yesterday. Moon conjuncts Jupiter to live large, be extravagant, and do as you please. But Moon squares Mars and Uranus, and is opposite Pluto, that can bring chaos. No one wants to be told what to do — especially under the influence of independent Horse. Avoid power plays or excessive intensity in relationships. Horse day luck strong for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.
Thurs Dec 19 is a gentle Earth Sheep day, the fortunate golden Sheep, when the Moon is opposite Venus for love, art, and beauty. Sheep love luxury so treat yourself today! And Sheep love the flock so be social and enjoy the companionship of others. Pluto squares Mars and Uranus so be cautious when driving and don’t take on too many responsibilities. Jupiter trines Saturn for stability that is very helpful. Sheep love feng shui so call me 415.642.8019 to schedule your feng shui consultation for New Year! Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.
Fri Dec 20 is a complicated Metal Monkey (white Monkey) day when Moon trines Uranus for something new and different. Moon sextiles Mars for courage and strength to pursue goals. Sun trines Neptune for inspiration and creativity that Monkey loves. But Mars is opposite Uranus and squares Pluto so can be too rash, or have power struggles and disagreements. Under the influence of Monkey, watch out that someone else doesn’t take all the peanuts and leave you the shells! Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.
Sat Dec 21 is WINTER SOLSTICE at 9:11 am PST on a Metal Phoenix (Rooster) day. Now is the longest night in the northern hemisphere. Love planet Venus goes retrograde so be careful in relationships. Time to cherish your loved ones. Moon squares Saturn so could fee lonely or a bit blue on this longest night. Take time for reflection and contemplation. Good to plan for 2014. Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Phoenix hours 5 pm – 7 pm.
Sun Dec 22 is a strong Water Dog day when Moon trines Mercury to be in touch with your emotions, and can easily communicate about your feelings. Moon is opposite Neptune so more sensitive, perhaps a few odd moods. Fortunately, Sun trines Moon for inner balance and vitality. Dog day luck strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Good luck and have a great week,
