December 3 2017 is a full Moon in Air sign Gemini. Lively, effervescent Gemini is ruled by Mercury. This full Moon is opposite the Sun in Sagittarius. Plus Mercury, Venus, and Saturn are all in fiery Sagittarius that adds restlessness to Gemini’s mercurial energy.
This full Moon and Sun square Neptune in Pisces. So if feeling stressed — relax! It’s peak of Pig month to enjoys the upcoming holiday season, wrap gifts, eat, drink, and be merry. Pig enjoys the good life, as does Pig’s most compatible signs Rabbit, Tiger, and Sheep.
Mercury is retrograde from December 2 to 22. Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde is a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced.
But this final Mercury retrograde of Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year can be an excellent time to focus on detailed tasks, complete projects, and clear out year-end clutter! Focus returns to business during Rat month that begins December 17, and after Mercury goes direct.
Mercury continues to conjunct Saturn, peaking again December 6 then January 12 2018. Communication can be critical, finding flaws, or there can be general negative thinking.
Fortunately, this Mercury and Saturn conjunction trines Uranus in Aries to create new solutions and more intuitive answers. Vision has breath and scope, with a balance of old and new. During this Mercury retrograde conjunct Saturn is an excellent time for a tarot reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation. Contact me to schedule, or for a holiday gift certificate.

October 5 2017 is the annual harvest full Moon, the full Moon closest to Autumn Equinox. This full Moon is in Fire sign Aries. People can be more adventuresome and bold under the influence of fiery, action-oriented Aries. Harvest Moon is time to harvest, or finish projects. But pace yourself. Fine if some projects take all winter to complete. Contact me for your tarot card reading for guidance and insights about career choices, your astrology forecast for fortunate dates to take action, or your feng shui consultation to empower your environment this autumn.
The Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter are in partnership sign Libra. Jupiter adds luck, so as the lunar cycle wanes it’s time to focus on relationships. Venus conjuncts Mars for love and romance, and a new appreciation of loved ones. Venus and Mars trine Pluto for new awareness in relationships. Emotional expression is strong, and ambition is stimulated, with inspiring new ways of applying your creativity.
Venus and Mars square Saturn so relationship breakthroughs, or artistic endeavors, could take time. The Sun and full Moon square Pluto for radical change of old emotional patterns, and to purge things of the past. It’s best to be realistic during this no-nonsense double Phoenix (Rooster) month.
Happy full Moon,

September 19 2017 is a new Moon in Virgo. Earth sign Virgo rules the 6th house of work, health, and service. It will be easier to apply Virgo’s analytical strength and practical powers of discernment because the Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all in Virgo!
During this lunar month, focus on Virgoan earthly matters of health, finances, being of service, and forwarding your career. The new Moon is an excellent time to begin new projects, so address the area of life that needs the most attention. Health is a priority for balancing body, mind, and spirit.
Love planet Venus and work planet Saturn both trine Uranus to discover new ways of doing things. Under the influence of Venus, it’s good timing to bring new energy into your home during this lunar month, and start making it cozy for winter. The Saturn trine brings a delightful balance of old and new.
The new Moon and Sun square Saturn so projects can take more time than anticipated, even until the end of the year. If there are feelings of overload, negative thinking, or if coworkers aren’t compatible, there’s plenty of time to make necessary changes. Good to learn and observe during this Virgo lunar month.
The ongoing Mercury conjunct Mars brings stamina for mental tasks. But there could be ego conflicts if people become
overcritical with so many planets in Virgo.
2nd EARTH PHOENIX MONTH
This new Moon begins the second Earth Phoenix month in a row, bringing more opportunities for spiritual growth and rebirth. We can create a balance between the material and spiritual worlds. Success is attained by applying Phoenix virtues of diligent work and whole-hearted involvement in tasks. Phoenix correlates to the Western sign Virgo, so pay attention to earthly matters such as your physical health. The spiritual world is more secure when the material realm is organized. Luck is strongest for those born in Phoenix, Ox, Snake, and Dragon years.
September 22 is autumn Equinox, the time of equal day and equal night, and the solar point between summer and winter Solstices. Equinox is time for balance, making today and this weekend the ideal time to take stock of actions so far in this Phoenix year. And time to enjoy the bounty of harvest as autumn begins, and the Sun enters relationship sign Libra. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for autumn.

August 21 2017 is a new Moon and a total solar eclipse. This eclipse occurs when the Moon slides between the Earth and the Sun. Starting over the Pacific ocean, the Moon will paint a 67-mile wide swath of darkness across the United States. This lunar sweep starts at 9:06 am PDT in Oregon, and ends at 4:06 pm EDT in South Carolina. Then the eclipse continues over the Atlantic ocean for about 75 minutes.
To observe, on the West coast the eclipse begins just after 9 am, and the eclipse peak is at 10:19 am. On the East coast, the eclipse begins just after 1 pm, and the peak is around 2:30 pm. If traveling to view the eclipse, allow more time for traffic because Mercury is still retrograde until September 5.
In Jungian terms, an eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen. So this eclipse is a time to expose and bring to light what is hidden. This new Moon is in Fire sign Leo, the second Leo new Moon in a row, bringing another opportunity to express talent, vision, and originality. We can dig deeper under the influence of the eclipse to find resources and express ingenuity.
The Moon, Sun, and Mars are all in Leo, with many fortunate Fire trines that bring success. The Moon and Sun trine Uranus in Aries for new discoveries about yourself and others, with increased perception and understanding.
Mars trines Saturn in Sagittarius for courage and confidence. Mars’ initiative blends with Saturn’s structure that’s good for working on projects that were started earlier.
Mercury in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces that can be confusing if too much information becomes overwhelming.
No need to make rapid decisions.
This new Moon eclipse begins the month of the Earth Phoenix (Rooster) in Chinese astrology. 2017 is the year of the Fire Phoenix, making this a double Phoenix month. The next new Moon on September 19 starts the second Earth Phoenix month, making two double Phoenix lunar months in a row. Time to cultivate Phoenix traits of hard work, conscientiousness, and discipline.
The Earth Phoenix is the blessed golden Phoenix. Earth cycles are good to focus on practical endeavors including health, and can be excellent for business. Luck is strongest for those born in Phoenix, Snake, Ox, and Dragon years and Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation during this eclipse energy.
Happy new Moon,
