GEMINI NEW MOON begins FIRE HORSE MONTH
May 25 2017 is a new Moon in Air sign Gemini. Bright and lively Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of ideas and communication. So this lunar month is time to put your ideas into action. Plus this new Moon begins the month of the Fire Horse. Fire Horse month in this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year creates a great deal of Fire for passionate and creativity. Horse can bring victory, adventure, excitement, and surprising romance. Decisive action, not procrastination, leads to success.
Mars, also in Gemini, is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius that requires focus and perseverance. But Fire Horse could create confusion or run-away energy. Under the influence of strong and powerful Horse, there is no middle ground. By the end of this lunar month, you will know clearly what works and what does not.
Another theme this lunar month is that love planet Venus in Fire sign Aries is highly aspected. Venus conjuncts Uranus in Aries for new and different experiences in your relationships. But Venus squares Pluto in Capricorn for too much emotional intensity or a fight for dominance. Fortunately, Venus trines Saturn bringing honesty and stability to your interactions. And Venus is opposite Jupiter in Libra to enjoy the fine things in life with others.
Luck is strongest for Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and those born in Horse, Dog, Tiger, and Sheep years. Contact me for your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation for Fire Horse month.
Happy new Moon,

This morning I received a phone call from a woman who was interested in a tarot card reading about a relationship with her friend. They’ve known each other for many years, but the friend was jealous, becoming more and more difficult, and was more of a frenemy than a true friend.
I told her to prepare three questions, or topics, for the cards. Her first question can be about the friendship. Then she told me that she was reluctant because she feared the Death card. I told here that if she did get the Death card, then clearly time to end the friendship! Death. It’s over.
She was surprised it was that easy, and was relieved. Getting the Death card does not mean you will die, but that the situation or circumstance should die.
I told her of my experience with the Death card: during one of the dot.com booms here in the San Francisco Bay Area, I was approached to write content for new web sites. I was to interview the CIO to create a flattering profile in support of their company culture and on-line identity. Payment at that time was $10,000 per job because so much money was available.
Should I do this? I have the skill set, and the money was insane. So I shuffled my tarot cards, laid out a half Moon circle (see page 180 of Introduction To Tarot), and selected one card. I got the Death card! So I thanked the start-ups who contacted me, but told them no.
About six months later, the tech bubble burst and most of the tech companies disappeared. Fortunately, I stayed with my tarot and astrology services instead of becoming a pen for hire. So the Death card is not always a bad card. Sometimes Death is the right answer.

May 10 2017 is a full Moon in powerful and passionate Water sign Scorpio. This full Moon trines Neptune in Pisces for increased imagination, and is fortunate for all types of creative and artistic expression. There is heightened sensitivity to the moods of others, and this new empathy and understanding leads to emotional growth and maturity. This powerful energy is ideal for this full Moon that marks the peak of Snake month, the time to shed skins of the past, release old patterns, and be reborn in springtime.
The full Moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn that brings to the surface deep feeling and emotions. This can have a healing and therapeutic influence on relationships, and can lead to personal transformation. Plus the Sun in Taurus trines Pluto for understanding what motivates you, and to gain clarity about what you’d like to change.
Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter in Libra that brings strength and vigor, and is excellent for taking action. This Air trine is especially favorable for business activities, and you can advance your own interests. Mars squares Neptune so be sure that all interactions are scrupulous. And it’s OK to change course or readjust when needed.
Full Moon energy is most strongly felt by Water signs Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer and those born in Pig, Rabbit, and Sheep years. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation as Snake month completes, and to
prepare for Fire Horse month that starts on the new Moon.
Happy full Moon,
