November 30 2020 at 1:30 am PST is a full Moon in Gemini, and a lunar eclipse at 1:43 am PST. Air sign Gemini rules the 3rd house of communication, ideas, and relatives. Time to express your ideas and communicate your feelings during this full Moon, and during the next two weeks as the full Moon wanes. Topics that were hidden, or it was just not the right time to speak about them, can come to light during this eclipse.

Mercury in perceptive Water sign Scorpio sextiles Jupiter and Saturn in earthy Capricorn. This is favorable for overall planning with clarity of purpose. Timing is good to make practical changes, and to communicate about important matters. People are more tolerant of different viewpoints and have more intellectual curiosity. These Mercury sextiles are also very beneficial for business.

Venus in Scorpio is opposite Uranus in Taurus. Anticipate unexpected surprises in relationships. Artistic creativity is heightened to find ways to break from the norm. And enjoy the sensual pleasures of life as this full Moon marks the peak of epicurean Pig month.

The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn continues, emphasizing both financial and political issues. Energy will change on December 21, Winter Solstice, when both Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius brings focus on communication, information, and technology.

Contact me for your tarot reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation to help set goals. Opportunities for clear communication are for all, and are strongest for Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and those born in Tiger, Horse, Dog, and Pig years.

Happy full Moon,

2020 Leo New Moon begins Monkey Month

August 15, 2020 § 1 Comment

August 18 2020 at 7:42 pm PDT is a new Moon in Leo. Fire sign Leo rules the fifth house of creativity, self expression, and children. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in Leo, bringing creativity, passion, and excitement. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury also trine Mars in Aries for strength, stamina, and courage.

This new Moon begins Wood Monkey lunar month until September 16. Monkey is a favored sign of the Chinese zodiac, and Monkey month is considered fortunate, especially in a Rat year. Monkey is ingenious, mercurial, and a natural leader. The element Wood symbolizes new growth and expansion, making Wood Monkey growth-oriented, creative, and idealistic. There’s increased confidence to speak your mind and make bold plans. If you were considering a new path, now it the time to plan or launch under the influence of Wood Monkey.

However, even with Wood Monkey’s enthusiast and pioneering spirit, Mars squares Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. There could be obstacles in your path, or a need to slow down to address details. There can be creative transformation, but also power struggles and disagreements with people going to extremes. Contact me for your tarot or astrology reading for clarity.

The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction (blended together) in Capricorn continues, placing focus on financial and political issues. All three of these planets are retrograde, adding to the intensity.

Opportunities for breakthroughs and forging a new path are for all, and are most life changing for Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake years.

Happy new Moon,


2019 Taurus Full Moon in Double Pig Month

November 8, 2019 § Leave a comment

November 12 2019 is a full Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted in Earth sign Taurus. Taurus rules the 2nd house of finances, material possessions, and security. This full Moon, and as the lunar cycle wanes, is time to focus on staying grounded and centered during change.

There’s also focus on art, love, and beauty because Taurus is ruled by Venus. This full Moon marks the peak of sensual Pig month in this Pig year. Double Pig energy is happy to enjoy the beauty and bounty of Mother Earth under the light of this full Taurean Moon.

The full Moon is opposite the Sun and retrograde Mercury both in Water sign Scorpio. People can be nostalgic or sentimental during Mercury retrograde, especially in a Water sign. Conflicting opinions, even memories, are due to fixed viewpoints. Mercury is retrograde until November 20. But we can still feel the retrograde influence until the new Moon on November 26.

Fortunately, the Sun and retrograde Mercury trine Neptune in Pisces. There can be psychological insights instead of judgments. There is more sensitivity to the moods of others, with empathy and understanding.
The full Moon trines Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Viewpoints and goals are more realistic, and that paves the way for growth and evolution. This is very helpful as Mars in Libra sextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius, a lucky Jupiter transit that’s favorable in business, is good for working with others, and often augers professional success.
Contact me for your astrology forecast as we head towards the 2020 New Year. Luck is strongest for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Ox, Phoenix (Rooster), Dragon, and Pig years.

Happy full Moon,

2019 Sagittarius Full Moon in Horse Month

June 14, 2019 § 1 Comment

horse full moon
June 17 2019 is a full Moon in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of exploration, travel, and learning. This full Moon marks the peak of Horse month. Both Sagittarius and Horse are ruled by the element Fire. They like fast forward movement, and stay strong to the truth of their convictions.

The full Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Sagittarius that’s fortunate for everyone. People are in touch with their emotions, and have heightened intuition. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology charts for guidance.

Mercury conjuncts Mars in Cancer. The power of Mars is softened by Water sign Cancer. Still, there’s increased mental energy to talk your way to success, or skillfully debate your ideas. It’s good to finish projects as the lunar cycle wanes, especially before Mercury retrograde July 7 – 31.

Saturn conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. The old order of Saturn changes through Pluto transformation. There’s structural change to let go of the past to embrace the new on both a personal and global scale. Horse month energy brings evolutionary change and progress.

Energy builds to Summer Solstice on June 21, the longest day in the northern hemisphere, when Mother Nature is at her fullest. Luck is most influential for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Horse, Monkey, and Dragon years.

Happy full Moon,



2019 Gemini New Moon begins Horse Month

May 31, 2019 § 1 Comment

June 3 2019 is a new Moon in Gemini. Air sign Gemini rules the third house of communication, intellect, and ideas. The Sun, new Moon, and Mercury are all in Gemini bringing inspiration for new concepts and plans to put into action this month. Travel, especially short trips, is fortunate to expand your horizons.

This new Moon begins month of the Metal Horse, the powerful war Horse. Metal Horse is focused and can leap over obstacles. There’s not a split between mind and emotions with determined Metal Horse in charge.

The Sun and new Moon are opposite Jupiter in Sagittarius. This is a transit of courage, with a drive for freedom, fast change, and action — all natural Horse traits. But people can overextend, and grandiose plans can run away like a wild Horse if there is lack of accountability.

The Sun, new Moon, and Jupiter square Neptune in Pisces in a mutable T-square. If there’s a gap between ideals and reality, Horse brings common sense and good instincts. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation during Horse month when you can cover much ground.

Luck for new discoveries, exploration, and inspiration is for all, especially Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and those born in Horse, Sheep, Dog, and Tiger years. Tiger is notably fortunate this month.

Happy new Moon,

EARTH SNAKE MONTH May 4 – June 2 2019

May 4 2019 is a new Moon in Earth sign Taurus. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, the best sign for the Moon. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet named for the goddess of love, art and beauty. This lunar month is time to enjoy the beauty and creativity of springtime.

Uranus, the planet of revolution and change, entered Taurus in May 2018 for seven years until July 2025. This springtime starts a new cycle of powerful energy with potential for great transformation. On a global scale, Uranus in Earth sign Taurus indicates climate change crisis, and radical shifts about material resources such as world finances and health.

This new Moon begins Earth Snake month that’s ideal for focusing on earthly matters. There can be a symbolic shedding of the skin with spring cleaning, and a new focus on health and spirituality. To improve your health and well being, contact me for your feng shuiconsultation to clear out the old to make way for the new in this transformative Snake month.

This lunar month is excellent to plan, regroup, and complete projects from the previous active Dragon month. The Sun and new Moon trine Saturn in Capricorn for a realistic viewpoint, discipline, and patience. Mercury conjuncts Uranus bringing stimulating ideas and fresh insights.

Now can be a time to create art and beauty because Snake is an artist of the Chinese zodiac, along with Rabbit and Sheep. Contact me for your tarot cardreading about creative direction, or your six month mid-year astrology forecast.

Luck is strongest for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Monkey, Phoenix (Rooster), and Ox years.

2018 Solar Eclipse begins Sheep Month

July 10, 2018 § Leave a comment

Solar Eclipse

July 12 2018 is a new Moon in Cancer. Home-loving Water sign Cancer sets the tone for this lunar month. Time to focus on creating a nurturing and pleasant home.

This new Moon is a partial solar eclipse that starts a series of eclipses this summer. Eclipses add power and intensity to emotions, choices, and life direction. This new Moon on July 12, the full Moon on July 27, and the new Moon on August 11 are all eclipses.

Moon and Sun Aspects

The new Moon and Sun in Cancer, and Jupiter in Scorpio, trine Neptune in Pisces. These fortunate trines brings imagination, and understanding of the subconscious mind, for creative and artistic work. You can more easily sense the moods of others, intuition is strong, and feelings are accurate. People can be inspired to take altruistic and compassionate action, especially in this Earth Dog year.

The new Moon and Sun are opposite Pluto in Capricorn during this eclipse. Emotions are strong, and there can be surprisingly intense encounters or power struggles with those in authority. A conflict can reveal the inner workings to see old patterns.

Grand Earth Trine

Keeping relationships grounded is a grand Earth trine of Venus in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus. People can appreciate stable relationships, business and professional connections are good, with a balance of old and new. If single, a new romance is unlike anything in the past. If in a partnership, a second honeymoon is timely, especially before Mercury retrograde July 25 – August 18.

Earth Sheep Month  July 12 – August 10

This new Moon begins the month of the Earth Sheep until August 10. Sheep brings peaceful summer energy. During an Earth month, keep focus on earthly matters. Under the influence of artistic Sheep, it’s fortunate to create beauty in your environment.

Contact me for your feng shui consultation, tarot card reading, or astrology forecast. Luck is strongest for Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and those born in Sheep, Pig, Rabbit, and Horse years.

Happy new Moon,


2018 Capricorn Full Moon in Horse Month

June 23, 2018 § 1 Comment

Cap Full Moon

June 27 2018 at 9:53 pm PDT is a full Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of hard work and duty. This full Moon conjuncts Saturn, bringing a serious tone to emotions and life outlook. Capricorn’s influence helps apply full Moon insights to planning and other practical matters. During this Earth Horse month, you can cover much ground. As the full Moon wanes, complete projects before moving on to greener pastures.

Luck can come your way because the full Moon and Saturn trine Uranus in solid Earth sign Taurus. It’s an ideal time to make quick changes in your personal life, and in your immediate environment. There’s patience for constructive change, and understanding of the past. You can clear away old patterns, yet maintain a stable balance of old and new. You can more easily transform personal habits, and enhance the feng shui of your home. Call me for a feng shui consultation.

The full Moon and Saturn are opposite the Sun in Cancer. Oppositions involve other people, those opposite you. It could be challenging to balance work responsibilities with personal needs and home life. While some people understand and work within limitations, others apply the lead, follow, or get out of the way method to move quickly in Horse month. In general, organize projects before Mercury retrograde on July 25 (through August 18).

Jupiter in Scorpio trines the Sun in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces, making it easier to follow your gut instincts and intuition, like a horse. You can sense overall patterns, take stock of what you are doing, and reach into new areas of life to find new directions. As with any Jupiter transit, these trines are good for money. Contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast for making important decisions. Sudden opportunities are for everyone, and are strongest for Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo and those born in Ox, Horse, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years.

Happy full Moon,
