Highlights this week are communication planet Mercury goes direct on Tuesday (no longer retrograde), and a romance-filled weekend!

Mon June 30 is a Water MONKEY (black Monkey) day when anything can happen! Moon trines Uranus for a new routine, and Moon sextiles Mars for added energy and vitality. Sun trines Neptune to follow instincts and intuition. Plus good Mercury aspects for communication. But Moon squares Saturn, can feel lonely and blue. So keep yourself occupied on a Monkey day. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.

Tues July 1 is a Water PHOENIX (Rooster) day when communication planet Mercury goes direct after a three week retrograde. Communication will be easier now as Moon sextiles Mercury, and Mercury trines Mars. Sun trines Neptune and Saturn to start July with good luck. Sun also squares Uranus and is opposite Pluto so watch details and be thorough on a Phoenix day. Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.

Wed July 2 is a Wood DOG day. Dog days are fortunate in a Horse year. Moon, Venus and Neptune in a T-square so honesty and integrity are key in relationships. Deception can be exposed. Many lunar aspects so emotions are important, including Moon trine Pluto for depth of feelings. Dog day luck strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse. Dog hours 7 – 9 pm.

Thurs July 3 is a Wood PIG day. Pig day is fortunate in this Sheep month. Moon squares Mercury when emotions override rational thought. Follow romantic feelings and appreciate partnerships. Venus squares Neptune so can be unrealistic with loved ones, or just see the best. Some big squares with outer planets so not a day to solve all problems. Pig day luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.

Fri July 4 is a clever Fire RAT (red Rat) day that can be challenging. Sun opposite Pluto reaches a peak for power struggles with authority, maybe resulting in a new life direction. Sun also squares Uranus so easy to get upset. Instead of mulling over problems, enjoy fireworks on a Fire Rat day. Be social; Rat loves the pack. Mercury and Venus trine Mars for outdoor activities and good camaraderie. Sun trines Saturn to stay steady. Rat day luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Sat July 5 is a Fire OX day and waxing half Moon, a time for balance. Sun, Moon, Mars, Uranus, and Pluto in a big square with many aspects to Mars. Use this Martian energy to stay strong. Good for athletic activity or a trip out of town. Just drive carefully and not be accident prone. Mercury and Venus trine Mars for some romance and enjoyment of life. Ox day luck strong for Ox, Rat, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster). Ox hours 1 am – 3 am.

Sun July 6 is an Earth TIGER (yellow Tiger) day. Tiger days are fortune in a Horse year. Moon trines Mercury and squares Jupiter — reason enough for a party on a Tiger day! Venus sextiles Uranus for new friends and exciting adventures. But Moon conjuncts Mars so watch that Tiger temper. Sun still in a big square so don’t become frustrated by delays. They’ll clear up fast in Horse year. Tiger day luck is strong for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig. Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Good luck and have a great week,

Susan

Cancer New Moon Begins Metal Sheep Month

June 24, 2014 § Leave a comment

Sheep in LoveNEW MOON IN CANCER

Friday June 27, 2014 at 1:08 am PDT is a new Moon in Cancer. Cancer is a nurturing Water sign. Good fortune arrives with a grand Water trine of new Moon in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces. There is an easier flow of balanced creative imagination, plus increased empathy and sensitivity. You can experience a new understanding of your world and those around you. Time to put your wisdom into practice.

METAL SHEEP MONTH

This new Moon starts the month of the Metal Sheep. Sheep are artistic souls who cherish beauty and value the finer things in life. The element Metal exemplifies a clean, uncluttered environment in feng shui. Under the influence of artistic Sheep, you can create a beautiful home environment. Know you can call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com for a feng shui, tarot, and astrology consultation for Sheep month.

The Sun and Moon are opposite Pluto so emotions can be profound. But intense encounters are diffused by the gentle nature of kind Sheep. Sheep month is naturally lucky in a Horse year because Sheep and Horse are highly compatible. Anticipate a pleasant July when the gentle approach brings rewards. Mercury is still retrograde in Gemini until July 1 so lighten up your communications to others. This new Moon brings luck for all and is easiest for Water signs Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio and those born in Sheep, Pig, Rabbit, and Horse years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

The Second Half of Horse Year 2014

June 18, 2014 § Leave a comment

Happy Horse 2014Wood Horse year 2014 is half over. But lucky Horse year continues to bring opportunities to get up and go! There’s still plenty of time to take risks, explore new pathways, and open new doors. Horse year is superb for travel so finally take that adventure!

Freedom is key in Horse year. So if you don’t like the road ahead, you can quickly change direction. You don’t have to follow plans made in Snake year 2013. Like a Horse, suddenly turn and not look back. Improvise the rules because Horse is a free spirit who refuses to be tamed or corralled.

During the first half of Horse year, you found out fast what works and what does not work. If on a strong path, keep up the pace and enjoy the ride. Your good luck will continue throughout this Horse year. If Horse year energy is not to your liking, you can still change. It’s not too late. There’s still plenty of time.

If you prefer to watch the Horse race from the sidelines, comply with your group and don’t complain. Use Horse’s strong energy to be athletic and physical. Life will calm down for you in gentler Sheep year 2015.

In general, Horse year energy slows down after Summer Solstice. (On June 21 in 2014.) But this is an active Wood Horse year so energy remains lively all year long. Wood loves growth and expansion, like a plant seeking light and water. Feel free to contact me at susan@susanlevitt.com or call 415.642.8019 for your mid-Horse year check in!

Rat: Rat and Horse are exact opposites! You think and plan whereas Horse thrives on risk. But fortune is on your side because 2014 is a Wood year. You Rat appreciate the action, growth, and opportunities of go-getter Wood.

Ox: For the second half of Horse year, lighten your load and have some fun! Be social and don’t work so hard. Travel is highlighted so venture out and try something new. Winter is your luckiest time.

Tiger: Horse is your best buddy. So far so good in Horse year. Keep up with all your new friends and social circles! Everyone loves the Tiger now, especially at holiday parties this year.

Rabbit: All of Horse year is lucky for you to open new doors. Just don’t get too serious or rely on firm plans. Instead, enjoy the festive and social aspects of Horse. You can look forward a very fortunate Sheep year 2015.

Dragon: Both you and Horse are very strong, but Horse wins in Horse year. So give up any personal battles. Find allies, and let go of past grudges. Create your own group where you can emerge the leader!

Snake: Your good fortune continues throughout Horse year. The strength and speed of Horse help push you forward. OK to take time to refresh and restore when needed. But don’t hibernate this winter. Be social.

Horse: Stay strong and continue to pursue your goals. Doors open when you follow your Horse instincts. You can create what you want to be free and independent. Travel is highlighted this autumn and winter.

Sheep: Horse and Sheep are highly compatible. Horse year continues to be lively, creative, and successful for you Sheep. And next year Wood Sheep 2015 will be even luckier! If not feeling the luck, lighten up and enjoy in the spirit of fun-loving Horse.

Monkey: Horse year so far brought both good and bad. Chase the good, and quit the bad! Both Horse and Monkey thrive on change, and are easily bored. So OK to change direction at any time, and try new risks. Autumn brings luck for you Monkey.

Phoenix (Rooster): Horse year should be fun and sexy for you. If not, get the party started! You and Horse are very compatible so you can have sudden luck at any time. Opportunities continue for you throughout Horse year.

Dog: Every day can bring luck in this Horse year! Horse is your best friend in the Chinese zodiac so things just work out in your favor. Horse year ends in triumph for you Dog! Just maintain your pace during the coolness of autumn.

Pig: Both Pig and Horse love a good party. Any time is the best time for a celebration. So really enjoy holiday entertaining this year. You are strong and sturdy enough to keep up with all of Horse year energy. And next year Sheep 2015 is even better!

Happy Horse year,

Susan

Mon June 16 is an Earth HORSE day in Metal Horse month in Wood Horse year! Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm are the time of four Horses! Moon trines Mars adding strength and vigor.

Summer Solstice!

Summer Solstice!

FULL MOON in SAGITTARIUS

This type of energy is ideal in a Horse year. So aim for your target and go! This full Moon occurs on a Wood Tiger day. A Tiger day is fortunate in this Horse month and Horse year. So be bold, and speak what’s in your heart and mind.

Now is the peak of Horse month with lots of trines that bring ease and enjoyment: Moon trines Uranus, Mercury trines Neptune, Venus trines Pluto, and Jupiter trines Saturn. Finally, the breakthrough time after the stressful cardinal cross of spring. Life can flow, and you can cover much ground, even though Mercury is retrograde until July 1. Luck is strong for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Horse, Tiger, and Dog years.

SUMMER SOLSTICE

MERCURY RETROGRADE June 7 to July 1, 2014

June 5, 2014 § Leave a comment

MERCURY RETROGRADE

Our Boy MercuryCommunication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks three times a year.

From June 7 to July 1, 2014 Mercury is retrograde in Gemini. That’s 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 the Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

There will be one more Mercury retrograde in 2014 from October 4 – 25 in Air sign Libra. Relationships will be important under the influence of Libra. This retrograde can bring opportunities to thoroughly communicate to loved ones. October will be a Wood Dog month that is very compatible with the energy of this Wood Horse year.

Wishing you a safe Mercury retrograde,

Susan
