chinese_zodiac_wheel_necklace-r156d32f74d804e9196fe716301029978_fkok9_8byvr_512Highlights this week are a lucky grand trine on Dragon Friday, a double Snake Saturday, and a double Horse Sunday!

Mon May 5 a Fire RAT day. Can be testy with Sun and Mercury opposite Saturn, and Venus opposite Mars. (Oppositions involve others, those opposite you.) The grand cross continues of Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto so can feel limits, especially limitations at work. Confronting others can lead to chaos. Instead, use smart Fire Rat energy to follow up and get organized. Fortunately Moon sextiles Mercury and trines Venus to nurture and take care of yourself today. Rat day luck strongest for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Tues May 6 is a Fire OX day on a waxing half Moon, a time for balance. The Moon trines Venus and Uranus, and sextiles Mars, so relationships can be solid during this problematic grand cross of Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto when you can be pulled in different directions. Many oppositions in the heavens so easy to look at those opposite you and find conflict. But stay strong and focus on your own work instead. Ox day luck strongest for Ox, Rat, Snake and Phoenix (Rooster). Ox hours 1 – 3 am.

Wed May 7 is an Earth TIGER day. Moon squares Sun and Saturn so can be irritable and impatient. Grand cardinal cross adds to the feeling of Tiger in a cage. But Sun trines Pluto and sextiles Jupiter to see opportunity and new ways to transform your situation — instead of just losing your temper. Tiger day luck strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig. Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Thurs May 8 is an Earth RABBIT day, the fortunate gold Rabbit. Take care of yourself and others on this sensitive Rabbit day. Moon square Mercury and is opposite Neptune so could feel overwhelmed by emotions and not see things clearly. Not a good time for making decisions, especially if feeling stress from the grand cross. Rabbit day luck strongest for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig. Rabbit hours 5 – 7 am.

Fri May 9 is a powerful Metal DRAGON (white Dragon) day. Sun, Moon, and Pluto are in a fortunate grand trine that brings flow and ease to life, and balances the energy of the challenging grand cross. Sun and Moon sextile Jupiter and Saturn, good for group activities and socializing. Can accomplish tasks and cover much ground. Dragon day luck strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey. Dragon hours 7 – 9 am.

Sat May 10 is a DOUBLE SNAKE day: a Metal Snake day in this Earth Snake month. Fortunate aspects to Mercury bring good commutation and insights. Venus conjuncts Uranus for relationship luck, attraction, and excitement. Today can be fortunate, even with the grand cross in the heavens. Snake day luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Phoenix (Rooster). Snake hours 9 – 11 am.

Sun May 11 is a DOUBLE HORSE day; a Water Horse day in this Wood Horse year. The Moon and Venus join Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto in a grand cross. Easy to become irritated or upset! So lighten up on this Horse day. Pleasant sextiles to Mercury and Venus so can enjoy a party or celebration. Not the time for deep family discussions or decision making. Horse day luck is strongest for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog. Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Good luck and have a great week,

Susan

Monday April 28, 2014 is new Moon eclipse in Taurus at 11:14 pm PDT. Sun, Moon, and Mercury are all in Earth sign Taurus to get grounded, stable, and organized.

This new Moon begins the month of the Earth Snake. And this new Moon also occurs on the day of the Earth Snake. The element Earth is beneficial and grounding for Snake. Mystical Snake is the sign of wisdom and healing. Snake loves to probe deeply, especially under the influence of an eclipse.

The grand cardinal cross of Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto continues so you could feel overwhelmed or pulled in different directions. Fortunately, Snake energy slows down the fast pace of Horse year.

Feel free to call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot or astrology reading for this deep, reflective Snake cycle. This new Moon eclipse energy is luckiest for the Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Phoenix (Rooster), and Ox years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

chinese_zodiac_wheel_necklace-r156d32f74d804e9196fe716301029978_fkok9_8byvr_512The highlight this week is a DOUBLE EARTH SNAKE solar eclipse at 11:14 pm PDT on April 28! Monday is an Earth Snake day, and this new Moon begins the lunar month of the Earth Snake.

Mon Apr 28 is a DOUBLE EARTH SNAKE solar eclipse at 11:14 pm PDT! Today is an Earth Snake day, and this new Moon begins the lunar month of the Earth Snake. Snake is the sign of wisdom and healing. The element Earth is beneficial and grounding for the Snake. This new Snake energy brings momentum to slow down in this Wood Horse year, and heal what needs to be made right. Create closure if feeling scattered; take a well-deserved rest if feeling tired already in Horse year; or just organize and clean up to prepare for Horse month on the next new Moon — when Horse energy returns with a gallop! Double Snake month is luckiest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Phoenix (Rooster). Snake hours 9 – 11 am.

Tues April 29 is a dynamic DOUBLE HORSE day; a Metal HORSE day in this Wood HORSE year. Now is fortunate for direct communication. The Sun, Moon, and Mercury are conjunct in a little pack, and this pack trines Pluto to speak your mind and let out your feelings. Horse can be blunt but straight talk works. The grand cross of Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto does not slow you down. Double Horse day luck is strongest for Horse, Tiger, Sheep & Dog. Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Wed Apr 30 is a good Metal SHEEP day to be social and lighten up! Mercury sextiles Jupiter for pleasant conversations and an optimistic viewpoint.The Moon sextiles Venus for appreciation of art and beauty — Sheep’s favorite pastime! Take care if feeling overwhelmed by the grand cross energy. Sheep tenderness goes a long way. Sheep day luck is strongest for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.

Thurs May 1 is a sensitive Water MONKEY (black Monkey) day. Moon trines Mars for strength and good health. But can seem pulled in different directions if feeling the energy of the grand cross. Plus Mercury is opposite Saturn so try not to dwell or let Monkey mind take over. Monkey day luck is strongest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.

Fri May 2 is a lucky Water PHOENIX (Rooster) day. A Phoenix day is naturally fortunate in this Snake month. Now is an ideal time for balance and to appreciate springtime because today is the point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. So if you don’t feel centered during this time of the grand cross in the heavens, use this weekend to refresh and restore. But the Sun and Mercury are opposite Saturn today so can be too serious, or just feel upset in relationships. Seek the positive instead of finding fault. Phoenix day luck is strongest for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.

Sat May 3 is a defensive Wood DOG day. All Dog days are naturally fortunate in this Horse year. The element Wood gives Dog a sense of purpose to champion the underdog. The Moon trines Neptune to follow your instincts. But lots of squares in the heavens so avoid a Dog fight! Dog day luck is strongest for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse. Dog hours 7 – 9 pm.

Sun May 4 is a fun Wood PIG day when Moon conjuncts Jupiter to live large and party! Sun sextiles Moon to feel good about yourself and others. The big cross in the heavens of Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto continues. But enjoy! Take it easy. It’s a Pig day when energy naturally winds down as the zodiac cycle completes. Tomorrow Fire Rat day on Monday starts a new ambitious cycle. Pig day luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.

Good luck and have a great week,

Susan

Tuesday April 15 is a full Moon eclipse in Libra at 0:42 am PDT. Libra rules the 7th house of partnerships and marriage. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is see, so now is ideal for some quiet time for reflection, and then repair of any relationships that you feel could use some balancing.

This full Moon trines Neptune to take a break, ponder, and withdraw into yourself. Eclipse relationship matters are most important for the Air signs Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius and those born in Dragon, Monkey, and Rat years.

chinese_zodiac_wheel_necklace-r156d32f74d804e9196fe716301029978_fkok9_8byvr_512The Week in Chinese Astrology April 7 – 13, 2014

Highlights this week are a loving Venus conjunct Neptune on Dog day Wednesday, and a challenging Tiger Sunday when we really feel the planetary squares in the heavens.

Mon Apr 7 is an Earth MONKEY day and a waxing half Moon. Half Moons are time for balance and to catch up. Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto in a grand cross. Frustrating, but jump ahead on a Monkey day. Earth Monkey day is lucky in this Earth Dragon month. Moon squares Mars so can be irritable or impatient. Fortunately Moon trines Saturn this evening for emotional maturity, more realistic. Monkey day is lucky for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.

Tues Apr 8 is an Earth PHOENIX (Rooster) day. Moon trines Mercury in touch with feelings, more sympathetic. Phoenix day is naturally lucky for relationships in this Dragon month. But big squares in the heavens, including Sun and Uranus opposite Mars, so no pecking today if events are too slow for you. Phoenix day is lucky for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.

Wed Apr 9 is an Metal DOG day. All Dog days are naturally fortunate in this Horse year. The element Metal brings out the desire to fight for the underdog. Venus conjuncts Neptune for spiritual love, altruism, and union with others. Moon trines Sun and Uranus for harmony, and new energy for problem solving. Dog day luck strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse. Dog hours 7 – 9 pm.

Thurs Apr 10 is a Metal PIG day to take it easy. Big cross in the heavens of Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto. But the Moon trines the Sun and is opposite Venus so have a great meal, make love, and enjoy! Not a day to fight fate. Pig day luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.

Fri Apr 11 a Water RAT day. Rat days are lucky in this Dragon month. Venus conjunct Neptune continues for spiritual love, altruism, and union with others. Moon is opposite this Venus/Neptune conjunction so good for a party or celebration! But can have strange moods if feeling the crossed planets in the heavens. Use Rat ingenuity to problem solve, not dwell. Rat day luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Sat Apr 12 is a Water OX day when Moon sextiles Saturn to be a bit serious, but can get a lot accomplished. Good to have time alone with your thoughts. Mercury conjunct Uranus for an element of genius. Big squares continue so slowing down and being patient helped by steady Ox energy. Ox day luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake and Phoenix (Rooster). Ox hours 1 – 3 am.

Sun Apr 13 is a Wood TIGER (green Tiger) day. Sun and Mercury opposite Mars so easy to find something to argue about. Planets in a grand cross can feel held back, like a caged Tiger, so get outdoors and explore. Energy builds to full Moon eclipse on Tuesday at 0:42 am PST. Tiger day luck strong for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig. Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Good luck and have a great week,

Susan
