December 18, 2014 § Leave a comment
Mon Dec 22 is Fire RABBIT day. The days start to grow longer today after Winter Solstice that occurred last night. And the Moon starts to build after the new Moon yesterday that began Fire Rat month. Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto are all conjunct; Pluto in the mix adds intensity, especially in relationships. Plus Uranus squares Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto that can lead to conflicts and create tension. Domestic life can be upsetting, so take care. Rabbit’s natural diplomacy and kindness helps ease problems. Rabbit day luck strong for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig. Rabbit hours 5 – 7 am.
Tues Dec 23 is Earth DRAGON day. Dragon day is fortunate in Rat month because Rat is very compatible with Dragon (and Monkey). Moon conjuncts Venus bringing pleasant feelings so nice to socialize and express Dragon’s natural generosity and benevolence. Pluto conjuncts Mercury and Venus for intensity in communications and in relationships, but Dragon likes powerful interactions. Saturn squares Neptune that’s good for Dragon dreams and lofty ideas, not practical matters or definite plans. Dragon day luck strong for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey. Dragon hours 7 – 9 am.
Wed Dec 24 is Earth SNAKE day. Mercury squares Uranus that can be very mentally stimulating, and bring new creative and inspirational ideas. But Moon conjuncts Mars that can lead to irritability or upset over trivial matters. Plus Mercury and Venus are still conjunct Pluto that adds intensity to communications and to partnership dynamics. So think and ponder like the wise Snake before speaking or making decisions. Strive for inner peace, and not lash out. Snake day luck strong for Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Phoenix (Rooster). Snake hours 9 -11 am.
Thurs Dec 25 is DOUBLE HORSE day: Metal Horse day in this Wood Horse year when freedom is key. Astrologically speaking, Christmas day will be powerful. Fortunately, the Sun sextiles Neptune for charitable feelings and the desire to help others. Transformation planet Pluto conjuncts the Sun, Mercury, and Venus so ideas and opinions can change when you converse with others. Be open to new ideas. You can accomplish your goals by releasing the past and eliminating old patterns. Relationships dynamics become intensified as emotions are deeply felt. Double Horse day luck strong for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog.
Fri Dec 26 is Metal SHEEP day. Sun sextile Neptune continues for charitable feelings and the desire to help others. Sun sextile Moon brings peace and emotional balance. But there are three major squares in the heavens that can bring conflict so slow down and take care. Plus Pluto still conjuncts Mercury and Venus, but intensity and focus is lighter under the influence of peaceful Sheep. Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.
Sat Dec 27 is Water MONKEY day. Monkey day is fortunate in Rat month because Rat is very compatible with Monkey. Moon sextiles Venus for pleasant times. You can smooth over relationship problems, especially under the influence of charming Monkey. Nice to entertain at home and be with loved ones. Sun and Mercury square Uranus so be careful to avoid accidents. But good for inspirational ideas and inventions that creative Monkey finds entertaining. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.
Sun Dec 28 is Water PHOENIX (Rooster) day. Now is the first quarter Moon, the waxing half Moon, that’s time for balance. So strive for balance as the Moon conjuncts Uranus to feel rash and impulsive. Moods can change quickly and unexpectedly. Plus Moon squares Pluto that can bring compulsive behavior leading to the wrong direction in life. Fortunately, Moon trines Saturn for emotional stability and a realistic outlook, not Phoenix flights of irrational fancy or the need to peck others. Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.
Good luck and have a great week,
