white-ratNovember 29 2016 is a new Moon in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius is quick, decisive, and can cover much ground. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Saturn are all in Sagittarius making this month the time for action, activity, and travel — especially before Mercury goes retrograde on December 19.

Mars in Aquarius trines Jupiter in Libra, a lucky aspect for business success and decision making. The new Moon sextiles Mars and Jupiter to work well independently or with groups. Plus Mercury trines Uranus in Aries for new ideas, inspiration, and broad vision.

Mars and Jupiter sextile Saturn, bringing the ability for careful planning and diligence. These are traits of the Rat in Chinese astrology, and this new Moon begins the month of the Metal Rat. You can build on your current foundation. Rat month is fortunate in this Monkey year because Rat and Monkey are most compatible, along with Dragon. And financial transactions are favorable in a Metal month because Metal represents money.

Relationship dynamics intensify as Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.There could be power struggles with partners, or conflict about money and spending. The Venus and Pluto conjunction squares Jupiter and Uranus that can bring a tendency to over extend during these last two months of Fire Monkey year.

The Sun and new Moon conjunct Saturn to focus on details and responsibilities to fulfill your obligations. It’s good for organizing and to complete unfinished matters under the influence of cautious and clever Rat. The Sun and new Moon square Neptune in Pisces so if discouraged or overwhelmed, accomplish tasks in small bites. That is how Rat succeeds, by systematically nibbling away until the goal is attained.

Luck is strongest for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey years. Call me in San Francisco at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation.
