NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS
December 17 2017 is a new Moon in Sagittarius. Inspirational Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of travel, philosophy, and learning. Time to explore and expand your horizons with the new Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn all in Sagittarius. Say yes to new activities, especially after Mercury is no longer retrograde on December 22.
Under the influence of Sagittarius, people enjoy gathering together. So this holiday month is time to lighten up, socialize, and take action. Connecting with others is fortunate to give structure to your ideas, or bring your ideas into reality.
Very fortunate is that the new Moon, Sun, Venus, and Saturn all trine Uranus in Aries making for a very creative time! Uranus brings new discoveries, and an exciting change of pace. You can be flexible with your routine to see events in a new light, or take action with new consciousness. It’s also a powerful time for clear emotional expression, and new freedom in relationships.
More good news is that Mars conjuncts Jupiter, whereby your efforts achieve results. Jupiter, the planet that rule Sagittarius, brings optimism for the future. This conjunction in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces to follow your spirit. Pisces stimulates feelings of mercy and compassion. For some, there’s motivation to seek new truth and dive into the mysteries of life.
WATER RAT MONTH
This new Moon begins the month of the Water Rat, the black Rat. Rats are industrious, intelligent, and can figure a way out of any maze. Focus is back on business and finances during a Rat month.
But this Rat month is different because the element Water shapes the emotions of the black Rat to be more empathetic, and sensitive to the needs of others. Plan for an enjoyable lunar month when Rat’s epicurean, bon vivant sensibility is kindly and easily expressed with so many planets in freedom-loving Sagittarius.
Happy winter solstice! December 21at 8:28 am PST is the shortest day in the northern hemisphere, and the longest night. Winter is a seasonal time of rest — but not in active Rat month during the tail of this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year!
Luck is strong with so many trines in heaven, especially for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in the year of the Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. To focus your luck, contact me for a tarot reading, astrology forecast for 2018, or a feng shui consultation.
Happy new Moon,

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.

November 2017 is the month of the Dog in Chinese astrology. Dog traits are honesty, integrity, and speaking up for the underdog. The truth is sniffed out, and injustice is exposed.
During this Dog month, women have come forward to openly speak about sexual assault, abuse, and harassment. And people believe the women, instead of placing shame and blame for wearing the wrong clothing, saying no when she really meant yes, or other insane justifications.
Tarana Burke started the hashtag #MeToo on Twitter to publicize these experiences and to demonstrate the massive amounts of mysogynist behavior. Millions of women posted, including me, and this is just the beginning of the discussion.
The truth telling during this Dog month gives us a sample of what to anticipate in Dog year 2018. More perpetrators of violence against women will be exposed, and will have to deal with the consequences of their behavior. I so look forward to this upcoming Earth Dog year. You have no idea.

November 3 2017 is a full Moon in Earth sign Taurus. Sensual Taurus, ruled by Venus, appreciates the physical pleasures of life and all things beautiful. Time for some romance and enjoyment this weekend!
Justice and truth are championed as this full Moon is the peak of noble Dog month. Good to see in a new light your earthly possessions, property, and material things. Then you can decide what to keep, and what can be passed on.
November a very opportune month for optimism and enthusiasm to proceed with your plans due to the Sun conjunct Jupiter in powerful Scorpio. Initiate and develop during November before Mercury goes retrograde on December 2 until December 21.
Try not to overspend on an ideal, or overextend your energy with others, as The Sun and Jupiter conjunction is opposite the full Moon.
There is a heightened interest in metaphysics, and a personal search for meaning. Seek the truth and develop spiritually as the Sun and Jupiter trine Neptune. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for guidance.
You might notice that people are more emotional, and respond with feelings, not the rational mind, as four planets are in Waters signs. Fortunately, understanding is enhance and relationship compatibility can improve as Venus and Mars are in cooperative Libra.
Happy full Moon,

MARS and SUN enter New Signs
War and courage planet MARS enters pacifist Air sign LIBRA today Nov 23 2017 until Dec 9. Much better for working collectively, with more attention to relationship dynamics. Libra ruled by love planet VENUS softens Mars.
The SUN enters powerful Water sign SCORPIO today until Nov 21. The gentler Libran Mars bring out the softer, more spiritual side of Scorpio for a month of transformation and insights. Adding luck is Sun conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio!
