Double Horse New Moon

May 23, 2014 § 1 Comment

new-moon-goddessNEW MOON in GEMINI

Wednesday May 28 at 11:40 am PDT is a new Moon in Gemini. Fresh, clean energy arrives like a warm, summer breeze. Sun and Moon trine Mars in Libra so have new strength and vigor, can stand your ground, and be more assertive. But Sun and Moon square Neptune so if not clear, balance the pros and cons before you take action. Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto are still in a big square so no racing off in the wrong direction like a horse wearing blinders.

DOUBLE HORSE MONTH

This new Moon begins double Horse month! It’s a Metal Horse month in this Wood Horse year. Time to get back in the saddle and take control. Bravery is rewarded, not complaints. Excellent time for travel, or tie up loose ends before Mercury goes retrograde on June 7. Mercury retrograde in a Horse year can be rather chaotic.

MERCURY RETROGRADE

Communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks three times a year. From June 7 to July 1, Mercury is retrograde in Gemini, which is helpful because Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini. Events fly by, and energy is wildly fast paced in this double Horse month. But it’s a Metal Horse month in Wood Horse year; Metal chops Wood so be cautious and avoid accidents. Yet double Horse month can bring sudden opportunities, and is especially favorable for those born in Horse, Tiger, Dog, and Sheep years and for the Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

FULL MOON IN SCORPIO and GRAND CARDINAL CROSS

May 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

LotusFlowerWhiteFULL MOON IN SCORPIO

Wednesday May 14, 2014 is a full Moon in Scorpio at 12:16 pm PDT. This full Moon marks the midpoint of introspective Earth Snake month. And this full Moon occurs on a Phoenix (Rooster) day that is naturally fortunate in a Snake month; Phoenix, Snake, and Ox are the most compatible.

The Moon conjuncts Saturn so can be very serious, perhaps too serious. But serious is good in a Snake month to really get to the bottom of things, secrets can be revealed, and transformation occurs by shedding the skin of the past. Fortunately the full Moon trines Jupiter in Cancer for well being, warmth in relationships, and generous giving.

GRAND CARDINAL CROSS

During this full Moon, there is a grand cardinal cross. In astrology there are three modes: mutable or changeable, cardinal or active, and fixed or stable. All four elements Fire, Air, Water, and Earth want to do things, but in the way of their own element. So there can be conflict in how people go about doing things.

Venus and Uranus are in cardinal Fire sign Aries, Mars is in cardinal Air sign Libra, Jupiter is in cardinal Water sign Cancer, and Pluto is in cardinal Earth sign Capricorn. People can feel held back or frustrated. But you’ll find out fast what does or does not work for you, especially in relationships.

Enjoy this introspective full Moon cycle by appreciating the love, friendships, and opportunities in your life. Next new Moon on May 28 starts Horse month when energy returns with a gallop. This full Moon in powerful Water sign Scorpio is most influential for Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer and those born in Pig, Rabbit, and Sheep years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

But Venus joins the grand cross of Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. Plus Sun is opposite Saturn so work within your limitations and accept your situation. Not a day to fight or champion your cause under the influence of peaceful Sheep. Sheep day luck is strongest for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.

Tues May 13 is a sly Wood MONKEY (green Monkey) day. Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune are in a grand trine that brings ease and flow to life.

Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.

Fri May 16 is a lucky Fire PIG day. Moon trines Venus and Uranus so good to be social, hang out with friends, and ideal for a party. Interesting to depart from your normal routine and shake things up a little. The big cross continues of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto. But instead of worrying and stressing out about others, enjoy and take life easy under the influence of sensual Fire Pig. Pig day luck is strongest for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.

Sat May 17 an Earth RAT day to heal and get organized. Moon squares Mars and conjuncts Pluto so easy to get into a fight and argument over trivial matters. Emotions are intense, and feelings can be overwhelming. Good to write or journal to resolve problems. Or communicate to a sympathetic friend or family member. The grand cross in the heavens is frustrating for everyone so be less judgmental. Rat day luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Sun May 18 is an Earth OX (gold Ox) day to appreciate what you have in life, and to enjoy the beauty of nature. An Earth Ox day is naturally fortunate in this Earth Snake month.

Moon sextiles Saturn so nice to carve out some quiet time for reflection. Ox day luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake and Phoenix (Rooster). Ox hours 1 – 3 am.

Good luck and have a great week,

Susan
