April 30, 2014 § Leave a comment
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,
