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,
