2021 Aries New Moon starts Dragon Month

April 9, 2021 § Leave a comment

April 11 2021 at 7:31 pm PDT is a new Moon in Aries. Fire sign Aries is a brave pioneer who takes dynamic action. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all in Aries for boldness, passion, and courage this lunar month. Energy is with you to make progress and open new doors.

The Aries new Moon and Sun make a harmonious sextile with Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Aquarius. Mars brings strength and stamina to more easily focus on your health and wellbeing. Jupiter brings good fortune, and new opportunities to be effective. Your partnerships with others can yield positive outcomes, and all will learn from new experiences.

Venus trines Mars for love and romance this spring. This aspect is very favorable for relationships of all kinds, and is good for personal creativity. Your close relationships can deepen with increased appreciation, and new relationships can develop and blossom. Jupiter sextiles Venus that is agreeable for taking a vacation, or staycation due to Covid. It’s easier for you to be benevolent with others, and to be at peace with the world.

The new Moon, Sun, and Venus square Pluto in Capricorn. Relationships can become deeper and more profound. Your feelings can gain momentum; however be aware to avoid emotional power struggles. If you experience a relationship conflict, this lunar cycle can be time to mend it and to invoke healthy behaviors. Contact me for your tarot reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation.

This new Moon begins the month of the Water Dragon, the black Dragon, when issues of power and control may arise. Dragon is considered to be very fortunate, and is the bearer of rain in springtime. The Water Dragon brings Water qualities of sensitivity, creativity, and sensuality. Anticipate that people will be more emotional this month. Just seeing friends after a year of restrictions can arouse deep feelings.

Dragon can be small as a silk worm or large enough to fill the entire sky. For the big picture, this Water Dragon month in this Ox year is ideal for home improvements, especially now when there are no planets in retrograde.

A feng Shui tip for Dragon month is to fix something both small and something big. Start by removing minor irritations such as a rug that slips in the hallway. Fixing small things can remove small irritations in life, and make room for the big things. 

Happy new Moon,

Chinese Dragon  March 24 2020 at 2:28 am PST is a new Moon in Aries. Fire sign Aries rules the first house of self image, self expression, and sensitivity to your surroundings. The Sun and new Moon are in Fire sign Aries bringing energy to take action this lunar month.

This new Moon begins the month of the powerful and decisive Metal Dragon. Dragon is the strongest sign of the Chinese zodiac, and Metal is very durable like a metal weapon. Fortunately, Venus exalted in Taurus trines Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto in Capricorn to make love, not war, during this Metal Dragon month.

Even in quarantine, you can follow your imagination like Dragon while taking small steps towards your goals in this Metal Rat year. Metal Dragon and Metal Rat are very compatible signs. Charismatic Dragon’s inspired vision of how the world should be can become reality through Rat’s detailed planning and pragmatic methods. The element Metal pares down and cuts away what is no longer necessary.

Stay healthy during COVID-19, and maintain good feng shui for you and your family. The first tip is to stay tidy while in an enclosed space. The second tip is to not become discouraged by delays in life plans. My article on Feng Shui during Quarantine.

Contact me for tarot and astrology by phone until we are in the clear for in-person readings. Luck is strongest for Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Rat, Monkey, and Phoenix (Rooster) years.

Happy new Moon,

2019 Aries Full Moon in Dog Month

sf full moon

October 13 2019 is a full Moon in Aries. Fire sign Aries rules the 1st house of courage, creative potential, and self expression. This full Moon brings a window of opportunity to make progress under the influence of brave, fiery Aries. Energy is strong to take action, and maintain direction with your goals. Mercury goes retrograde on Halloween, so set plans in motion now or complete what is already in progress.

This full Moon marks the peak of Dog month when loyalty is important, and so is telling the truth. If you sniff out that something is not fair or is not right, go with your gut instincts just like a real dog. Mercury conjuncts Venus in Scorpio to be naturally more attuned and follow your senses. And a good time to schedule your tarot card reading!

Very fortunate is that Jupiter trines the full Moon, and sextiles the Sun in Libra. These transits bring optimism, opportunities, and good luck. People are more friendly, with concern for the welfare of others. The holidays start early in this generous Pig year, a time to eat, drink, and enjoy life.

The full Moon and Sun square Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto can bring emotional intensity in relationships. So if it’s not easy to work collectively with colleagues, then work independently like an Aries. Should a power struggle occur, that’s an indication it’s time for less focus on work and more focus on home.

Luck is strongest for Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dog, and Horse years.

Happy full Moon,

2019 Aries New Moon begins Dragon Month

April 3, 2019 § 1 Comment


April 5 2019 is a new Moon in Aries. Fire sign Aries brings new energy for growth and development, making this lunar cycle a superb time to launch new projects — especially since the Mercury retrograde influence is complete as of this new Moon.

The Sun and new Moon are in Aries for new adventures, and to take action. Still in Pisces are Mercury, Venus, and Neptune that bring creativity. The Sun and new Moon square Saturn to slow down and focus on accuracy.


This Aries new Moon begins the month of the Earth Dragon. Bold action is rewarded in a Dragon month. Dragon loves to fly the skies, chasing a flaming pearl that is the Sun, so travel is highlighted.

The element Earth of the Earth Dragon is ideal for focusing on earthly matters such as checking you health. (My information about fortunate surgery dates.)

Contact me for your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation as decisive Dragon month sweeps in. Luck is strongest for Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Dragon, Monkey, Snake, and Rat years.

2018 Aries Full Moon in Phoenix Month

autumn leaves

September 22 2018 is Autumn Equinox, equal day and equal night, a time for balance as the seasonal wheel turns. September 24 is the Harvest Moon, the full Moon that’s closest to Autumn Equinox. This Harvest Moon is in Fire sign Aries, bringing energy and vitality. Aries inspires action, and an independent spirit, during this full Moon and as this lunar cycle wanes.

The full Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in harmonious aspects to Mars, newly in Aquarius. Mars brings courage, self reliance, and stamina. It’s fortunate to engage in physical activity to strengthen the mind and spirit, as well as the body. It’s also a good time to examine motivations, and decide what projects to forward or to complete. Contact me for your tarot consultation about choices and direction.

The full Moon, Sun, and Mercury square Saturn to slow down and be thorough. Attention to details is important in this Phoenix month. So fine to focus on the little things if that’s what needed for completion. Be clear about responsibilities, or people could feel isolated if their communication is not understood. Fortunately, Venus trines Neptune in Water signs for increased empathy and understanding.

This Aries full Moon brings energy for all, especially Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Rat, Dragon, Snake, and Monkey years.

Happy full Moon,

2018 Aries New Moon starts Fire Dragon Month

April 13, 2018 § 3 Comments


April 15 2018 is a new Moon in Fire sign Aries. The new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are all in Aries making this lunar cycle the time for positive change and a fresh beginning.

This lunar month is excellent to start or launch an idea, product, or business. You can change your routine to clear limitations, and find or refine a form of self expression. Mercury is no longer retrograde for ease with technology, communication, and travel.

Venus in sensual Taurus trines Mars and Pluto for romance, and is favorable for all kinds of social and artistic activities. New relationships are lucky, and for those in a partnership this lunar month is ideal for a second honeymoon. Now can be a very productive time that sets a foundation for future development.


This new Moon begins the month of the powerful Fire Dragon. Energy is high during this Fire Dragon month to take action — and succeed! The Fire qualities of dynamism, passion, and leadership ability are readily expressed though the brilliance of the Fire Dragon.

Dragon’s strong healing influence brings dynamic growth for everyone, especially the Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and those born in Rat, Dragon, Snake, and Monkey years.

Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for this vibrant Fire Dragon month. More information about Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood Dragons is in my book TAOIST ASTROLOGY.

Happy new Moon,

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.

This Harvest Moon brings abundance for all, especially those born in Dragon, Monkey, Rat, and Phoenix years and Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

Happy full Moon,


2017 Total Solar Eclipse

August 17, 2017 § 1 Comment


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,


2017 Full Moon in Sagittarius

June 8, 2017 § Leave a comment

June 9 2017 is a full Moon in Fire sign Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by JUPITER, the planet of good fortune. The full Moon sextiles Jupiter in Libra, plus the Sun in Gemini trines Jupiter making it easier to express and receive kindness, support, and nurturing. There can be increased optimism and inspirational energy to expand your goals and reach new heights, especially during this full Moon peak of dynamic and active Fire Horse month.

Close relationships also experience good fortune as Venus, newly in sensuous Earth sign Taurus, sextiles Mars newly in sensitive Cancer. Relationships are gratifying, there is a balance of personal needs and the needs of others, and perhaps a renewed passion due to the influence of the Fire Horse. This weekend is a good time for social activities, and financial activities are also favored.

The Sun and full Moon square NEPTUNE in Pisces, so temper any tendency to race off like a Horse with blinders, especially concerning finances. If there is a large gap between your ideals and your reality, the full Moon conjuncts Saturn that restricts both Sagittarius’ and Horse’s love of freedom, but is necessary to be realistic and plan. Luck is most powerful for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Horse, Dragon, Phoenix (Rooster), and Monkey years.

Sunday August 6 2017 is my beginning tarot class in San Francisco. The class text is my book Introduction To Tarot. Contact me to jointhe class, or to schedule your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation.

Happy full Moon,
