April 23, 2014 § Leave a comment
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,
