June 8, 2021 § 1 Comment

2021 GEMINI SOLAR ECLIPSE begins HORSE MONTH

June 10, 2021 is a new Moon eclipse in Gemini at 3:53 am PDT. Air sign Gemini rules the third house of communication, ideas, and short trips. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in Gemini making this an ideal time for new ideas and travel. However, Mercury is retrograde until June 22.

So if you do travel, be thorough with your plans and allow more time than anticipated to arrive at your destination. Due to the eclipse, some things may be hidden or just not exposed. If you launch new plans, be sure you have all the information before making important decisions.

The eclipsed new Moon, Sun, and retrograde Mercury all square Neptune in Pisces. Due to these squares, during this lunar cycle you may be dealing with unrealistic goals or are uncertain about life’s direction. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast to obtain clarity.

This new Moon begins the lunar month of the Wood Horse. Independent, freedom-loving Horse likes to socialize and explore. The element Wood brings excitement and stimulation for growth and new experiences. People are starting to socialize again, and seek fun and new adventures, especially after Covid isolation.

Fortunately, the new Moon and Sun trine Saturn in Aquarius bringing stability, discipline, patience, and some self-control making it easier to stay on track, and not race down too many paths during this Wood Horse month.

Wood Horse lunar month can be a powerful time for all, and is strongest for Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and those born in Horse, Dog, Tiger, and Sheep years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

2021 Taurus New Moon begins Snake Month

May 8, 2021 § 1 Comment

May 11 2021 is a new Moon in Taurus at 12:00 pm PDT. Earth sign Taurus rules the 2nd house of money, possessions, and the material realm. Taurus loves beauty, and appreciates the earthly and sensual pleasures of life.

The new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are in Taurus for you to focus on practical matters of nutrition, health, and finances. You can do this is a new, spiritual, even revolutionary way under the influence of Uranus. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation for insights to these new opportunities.

This new Moon begins the lunar month of the Snake. Snake is a symbol of wisdom and rebirth, and grows by shedding skins of the past. Therefore, this Snake lunar month is ideal for a big spring-cleaning transformation, especially after a year of stay-at-home Covid. Pare down and truly simplify during the spring of this Metal Ox year.

Of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood, this is the Water Snake month when emotional understanding and spiritual well-being are essential. Creativity can flourish, and there can be an intuitive balance of spiritual and material needs.

The new Moon and Sun make a fortunate sextile with Neptune in Pisces. It’s easier to follow your feelings, and there’s increased sensitivity to the emotions of others. Also fortunate is the new Moon and Sun trine Pluto in Capricorn. There’s power and force to get things done this lunar month before Mercury retrograde May 29 until June 22.

Saturn in Aquarius squares Uranus. You may feel an urge for freedom and new experiences. But as with any Saturn transit, there are still responsibilities. It’s better, and easier, to meet your obligations in this Ox year.

Opportunities for material and spiritual transformation are for all, and are most life changing for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Ox, Phoenix (Rooster), and Monkey years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

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, 

Susan

Interview for Oprah’s O Magazine!

I was interviewed for Oprah’s O magazine about the Year of the Ox 2021:

What the 2021 Year of the Ox Has In Store for You

By Samantha Vincenty

Feb 5, 2021

February 12, 2021 is the Lunar New Year, per the lunisolar calendars traditional in many Asian countries including China, Vietnam, and South Korea. The holiday of new beginnings, reunion dinners with loved ones, and Spring Festival celebrations in China also introduces the Year of the Metal Ox, marking the end of the Year of the Metal Rat. Those with an interest in Chinese zodiac animals may already know that some 2020 Rat predictions were just as unfortunate as the year turned out to be, and now, a new question looms: Will this Year of the Ox be lucky?

That can depend on a variety of individual factors. The compatibility of your personality with the traits of the Ox is affected by your own zodiac animal, according to Susan Levitt, professional astrologer, feng shui consultant, and author of Taoist Astrology. 2021 is also impacted by the fact that it’s a metal year (metal is one of the five elements of the Chinese zodiac; more on this later). Also, you may want to nail down what “lucky” means to you.

“What is the goal, what are you trying to do?” Levitt says. “And, does the energy of the Ox match with your personality or your energy?”RELATED STORIES

11 Lunar New Year Foods and What They Mean

Still, the Year of the Ox will impact us all in a few generally similar ways, according to both Levitt and Pocket Chinese Almanac authors and translators Joanna C. Lee and Ken Smith. Here’s what they have to say about the meaning of the Year of the Ox, and a few predictions for what it has in store.

Keep your head down in the Year of the Ox.

While Levitt is an astrologer and student of feng shui, Lee and Smith get their almanac predictions from a Hong Kong-based geomancer named Warwick Wong. Long practiced in his family, Wong’s style of Chinese geomancy is a form of divination, or forecasting the future, that observes astronomical movements and what Smith describes as “other atmospheric conditions.” Wong then interprets how these impact our lives down on earth, and his daily readings offer what’s lucky or unlucky to undertake (February 12 will be good for engagements or starting a business, but bad for rituals and paying out money). But Wong also gives Lee and Smith a general trajectory for what a given year will be like.

Basically, Lee says, “it’s a holding pattern.” Keep calm and carry on as best you can in 2021, but hold off on major moves if you’re able. And in a note worth taking whether you believe in the zodiac or not, Lee relays that Wong says to “try not to be obsessive about following the news, because so much information is in the air.” Essentially, preserve your energy and your spirit.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous lunar New Year of the Ox,

Susan

2021 Leo Full Moon ends Rat Year

January 26, 2021 § Leave a comment

FULL MOON in LEO

January 28 2021 at 11:16 am PST is a full Moon in Leo. Dynamic Fire sign Leo rules the 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. This full Moon is the final full Moon in Rat year. The next new Moon begins the year of the Metal Ox on February 11. (February 12 in China.) There is much activity during these two weeks before Ox year!

The full Moon is opposite the Sun, Jupiter, and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius. These oppositions can indicate opposing viewpoints about reality, undisciplined behavior, or a sense of alienation. Fortunately, the Sun conjunct Jupiter is lucky in general, bringing generosity of spirit, and is good for expansion into new areas of study.

The full Moon and Sun square Mars and Uranus in Taurus. It’s easier to become emotional or act impulsively. Leo loves drama, so use any disruptions to create new patterns and life habits. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast for insights, planning, and decision making as we begin year of the Ox.

MERCURY RETROGRADE

On January 30, communication planet Mercury goes retrograde for three weeks until February 20. Mercury will be retrograde in Air sign Aquarius. Mercury is exalted in Aquarius, the best sign for Mercury. Therefore, this is an ideal time to complete projects and follow up on communication. Under the influence of Aquarius, keep focus on technology.

The excitement and passion of this Leo full Moon and as the full Moon wanes will be felt by everyone, especially Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Rat, Monkey, and Dragon years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

2021 Capricorn New Moon begins Gold Ox Lunar Month

January 9, 2021 § Leave a comment

Sunday January 17 at 2 pm PST join me on Zoom for my 2021 Year of the Metal Ox lecture for Chinese New Year. Tickets are at https://www.eastwestbooks.org/events/ox-year-17jan21. Come with your questions for Ox year about the fortunes for all 12 zodiac signs, and take away New Year feng shui tips.

January 12 2021 at 9:00 pm PST is a new Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn rules the 10th house of career and finance, making this a good time to get centered with practical matters. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all together in a planetary stellium. A stellium is a grouping of planets, and this one is in Capricorn and Aquarius bringing focus, innovation, and creative solutions.

Energy is high during this new Moon as Mars conjuncts Uranus in Taurus until February 2. Rash behavior, desire for freedom, and to assert one’s individuality can be done in a constructive way. So this lunar cycle is an auspicious time to innovate and begin a new project that will take much energy.

This new Moon begins Earth Ox lunar month, the kind and empathetic gold Ox. Extreme good fortune blesses the gold Ox. An Ox month is fortunate during a Rat year because Ox and Rat are strong allies. Ox energy brings stability and structure. Ox may be slow but is determined, and what is built will last.

This gold Ox lunar month is excellent for career prospects, and to organize and regroup. Prepare for the next new Moon on February 11 that begins Metal Ox year 2021.

Practical application of sound  principles is for everyone this lunar month, and is most empowering for Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo and those born in Rat, Rabbit, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years. Contact me for your astrology forecast for 2021 Ox year, the time to build. Hope to see you at my 2021 Year of the Metal Ox lecture!

Happy new Moon,

Susan

2020 Cancer Full Moon in Double Rat Month

December 28, 2020 § Leave a comment

December 29 2020 at 7:28 pm PST is a full Moon in Cancer. Water sign Cancer rules the 4th house of home, foundation, and roots. There is a focus on family matters, and time to nestle in during the cold of winter. This full Moon marks the peak of Rat month in Rat year, so there could also be a focus on family finances and legacies. 

The full Moon is opposite the Sun and Mercury in Earth sign Capricorn. Your heart could say one thing while your head tells you another. Because this full Moon marks the peak of double Rat month, clarity and logic will take precedence over emotions. There could be communication challenges, so be aware not to become judgmental. Try to keep a cool head while still respecting the feelings and experiences of others.

Mars in Aries squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. There could be a tendency to extend past your resources, and ambition could be aroused to quickly get ahead. But it’s better to proceed slowly and cautiously. Work in small digestible bites under the influence of the Rat. Plus Jupiter and Saturn square Uranus. People might want freedom and independence, but Rat works collectively.

So this full Moon, and as the Moon wanes down, is not the time for serious discussions that can lead to conflict. Instead, cultivate the caring sensitivity of Cancer, and enjoy the good feelings of the emotional bonds that are of value to you. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast for 2021, or feng shui consultation for your home.

Emotions and sensitivity are strong for everyone, and are felt most deeply by Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and those born in Rabbit, Horse, Sheep, and Pig years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan
