December 14 2020 at 8:17 am PST is new Moon eclipse in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of education, philosophy, and the higher mind. Under the influence of Sagittarius, focus is on new learning, establishing values, and truth telling during this lunar month.

The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in Sagittarius resulting in some very frank, direct, conversations. The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury trine Mars in Aries bringing energy to not back down from a challenge. These transits are favorable for decisive action, negotiations, and asserting your position. 

The new Moon, Sun, and Mercury square Neptune in Pisces. There can be a feeling of disorientation, or allowing someone to talk you into doing something that you really don’t want to do. So avoid speculative or risky ventures. This is not the best transit for buying or selling in business, especially during an eclipse. 

Plus this new Moon is a total solar eclipse at 8:15 am PST. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, meaning that what is hidden can come to the surface. If seeking clarity about what is obscure in your life, contact me for your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation.


This new Moon begins Earth Rat month until January 12, 2021. Earth Rat month in this Metal Rat year is a double Rat month. In Chinese medicine, Earth is the “mother” of Metal because metal ore is extracted from the earth. Therefore, Earth Rat and Metal Rat are very fortunate together. Anticipate a successful and prosperous time that can continue into the following Earth Ox month in January.

Rat lunar month is time to focus on the details of practical matters. Rats are logical and rarely are swayed by emotions, particularly in financial dealings. This eclipsed double Rat lunar month is an ideal time to find out all the facts and figures. Accomplish tasks in small digestible bites, like a mouse, to not become overwhelmed.

WINTER SOLSTICE the Great Conjunction

December 21 2020 at 2:02 am PST is Winter Solstice that marks the shortest day and the longest night in the northern hemisphere. Winter Solstice this year is exceptional because there will an exact conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in 0 degrees Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius brings focus on communication, information, and technology. It’s the sign of all humanity, and the connection between us all. The Age of Aquarius, the Global Village, has arrived.

Jupiter conjunct Saturn is either a time of patient and sustained growth, or a time of restless to create a new life cycle. Either way, under the influence of Jupiter, events turn out for the best. But note that Saturn transits require discipline and planning.

For most people, it’s best to stay with their current path and continue doing what  they’re doing, but do it in a new and innovative way. For a few rare birds, this conjunction is time to break from the established order to build a completely new life structure such as a new job, new relationship, spiritual path, and different world view.

Winter Solstice occurs during the waxing half Moon in Aries at 3:41 pm PST. Half Moons are time for emotional balance. Fire sign Aries brings dynamic energy to take action. Just stay balanced and don’t go overboard.

Activities and experiences this lunar month are powerful for everyone, and are most transformative for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Dragon, Snake, and Monkey years.

Happy new Moon,

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.

2020 Solstice Eclipse begins Water Horse Month

June 17, 2020 § 1 Comment

June 20 2020 at 11:41 pm PDT is a new Moon eclipse in Water sign Cancer. Cancer rules the 4th house of home, family, and nurturing. Many people are staying home due to Covid-19, so continue to create a home sanctuary and take care of self and others.

This new Moon eclipse occurs on Summer Solstice, the start of summer and the longest day in the northern hemisphere. Plus this new Moon eclipse begins Water Horse month. Fiery Horse is strong and brave, and is one of the power animals of the Chinese zodiac. The Water Horse is more sensitive and sentimental than other Horses, but like all Horses they prize freedom and independence.

So during Water Horse lunar month, people do not want to be told what to do. They could be ruled be their feelings (Water), impulses, and subjective interpretation of facts. There’s plenty of Water to be in touch with emotions with the eclipsed Moon, Sun, and retrograde Mercury (until July 12) in Cancer, and Mars and Neptune in Pisces.

The eclipsed Moon and Sun are in 0 degrees Cancer, and both square Mars in 26 degrees Pisces. These squares can bring disagreements, irritability and impatience, and rash actions. But Mars squares can bring energy to make a successful stand in a confrontation, especially now for social justice. Long buried tensions come to the surface during this second of three eclipses in a row.

Mars conjunct Neptune continues that can bring unusual moods. The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction continues influencing financial and political issues. Contact me for your tarot reading and astrology forecast for guidance.

Opportunities to understand emotions, inner motivation, and to assert power are for all, and are strongest for Water signs Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio and those born in Horse, Sheep, Rabbit, Tiger, and Dog years.

Happy new Moon,

pembral eclipse

June 5 2020 at 12:12 pm PDT is a full Moon, and a lunar eclipse at 12:25 pm PDT. This is the first of three eclipses in a row when what is hidden comes to the surface. The truth can be revealed, especially concerning racial injustice. The next two eclipses are the new Moon on June 20 and full Moon on July 4.

The June 5 lunar eclipse is in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of education, philosophy, and exploration. Under the influence of straight-talking Sagittarius, people will say what they really think. This full Moon marks the peak of the second Snake lunar month. Snake is a sign of wisdom, so use your innate wisdom and powers of perception to understand self and others.

This eclipsed Moon is opposite the Sun and Venus conjunct in Gemini. Sun conjunct Venus brings creativity and self expression. And in some instances, indicates a new love interest. But with Moon opposite the Sun, emotional tensions can surface. And with Moon opposite Venus, people can do things to excess.

Fortunately, Mercury in Cancer sextiles Uranus in Taurus for new discoveries, with the ability to resolve issues from the past. You can find new solutions, and any astrological connection between Mercury and Uranus brings an element of genius.

Note that the eclipsed Moon and the Sun square Neptune conjunct Mars in Pisces. Mars conjunct Neptune is an odd coupling of two very different energies, and can bring forth unusual moods without knowing why. So observe your emotions, not just act on them. Contact me for your tarot reading and astrology forecast for guidance.

The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction continues influencing financial and political issues. Venus squares Mars that can indicate challenges in partnerships. Venus is still retrograde until June 24.


Mercury will be retrograde for three weeks starting June 17. So get your affairs in order, and legal documents organized, before this the retrograde begins. Mercury will be retrograde in Water sign Cancer, with a focus on home, family, and nurturing.

Opportunities for breakthroughs and discovery of the truth are for all, and are strongest for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Snake, Dragon, and Monkey years.

Happy full Moon,

2019 Leo Eclipse in Tail of Dog Year

January 20 2019 is a full Moon eclipse in Leo. This full Moon is a supermoon, meaning it appears very large in the night sky. Fire sign Leo rules the 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Under the influence of lion-hearted Leo, people can be kinder to each other in their everyday interactions, with more empathy and understanding. And time for artistic self expression to find or develop hidden talents and let them shine.
The eclipsed full Moon, the Sun newly in Aquarius, and Mercury all square Uranus. It’s easy to crave excitement that can be liberating. But it’s better to stay focused as this lunar cycle wanes. In two weeks, the new Moon begins the Chinese New Year of the Pig. So use any impulsive Uranian energy to complete tasks.
Fortunately, Venus conjuncts Jupiter that’s good for all types of relationships. It’s easier to bond with loved ones, and new acquaintances can bring opportunities. Surround yourself with art, fine food, and music — the pleasantries of life — to set the mood for Pig year. Contact me for your Earth Pig 2019 astrology forecast for both your Western astrology peak forecast dates and Chinese Four Pillars timing.
Venus and Jupiter trine Mars, adding strength and conviction for new adventures. These aspects are also fortunate for business activities, but avoid risks due to the eclipse. Luck is strongest for Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake years.

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 Lunar Eclipse and Mercury

August 3, 2017 § Leave a comment


August 7 2017 is a full Moon and lunar eclipse. Eclipses heighten emotion, intuition, and instinct. This full Moon is in Air sign Aquarius for new ideas and ways of communication. It’s fortunate to expand your circle, and is good for new learning.

The Sun conjuncts Mars in Leo for extra energy and courage. But under the influence of Mars, people can be irritable. If this occurs, stay aware of the big picture and not fan any flames.

Fortunately, the Sun sextiles Jupiter in Libra that is lucky for relationships and brings ease with colleagues. The Sun trines Saturn in Sagittarius to organize effectively so that your efforts achieve lasting results.



August 12 to September 5

Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde can be a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced. But Mercury retrograde during this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year can be an excellent time to focus on detailed tasks such as catching up on financial matters, and doing feng shui your home or office.

From August 12 to 30, Mercury is retrograde in Earth sign Virgo. Mercury is comfortable in rulership sign Virgo. This is very good for detailed analysis and review. Plus Phoenix correlates to the western sign Virgo, so 2017 Phoenix year energy works well with Virgo’s cerebral approach.

From August 31 to September 5, Mercury retrogrades back into Fire sign Leo. Communication is direct, and you can cover much ground. Be aware if people become bossy or demanding. Should there be ego disputes, wait out the Mercury retrograde cycle. We still feel the Mercury retrograde influence until the new Moon on September 19 that begins a new lunar cycle.

Good fortune is strongest for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries. Contact me for your tarot card reading, astrology forecast, or feng shui consultation.

Happy full Moon,


2017 Pisces Eclipse begins Rabbit Month

February 22, 2017 § 2 Comments


February 26 2017 is new Moon solar eclipse in Pisces. Water sign Pisces is artistic, sensitive, and highly intuitive. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, so deep feelings and emotions can rise to the surface to be transformed.

The new Moon conjuncts the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune in Pisces for integration of feelings. Moods are stronger than the rational mind, disposition can change quickly, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed by small matters. Therefore, this lunar month is ideal for meditation, contemplation, and to focus on self care and your domestic life. Artistic endeavors are favored, and imagination is powerful.


This new Moon eclipse begins the month of the Water Rabbit. Water is the most yin element, and adds softness to gentle Rabbit. Water Rabbit is a deep feeling and empathetic soul who dislikes conflict and competition.

Rabbit is opposite Phoenix (Rooster) in Taoist astrology. During Water Rabbit month in this Fire Phoenix year, take care and proceed with caution. A good use of Rabbit energy is to create beauty and harmony in your home. Contact me for your feng shui consultation.


Mars, the red planet of war and courage, is in fiery Aries. Mars is conjunct Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change. This can bring rash behavior, anger, or sudden upsets. People want freedom, refuse limitations, and rebel against authority.

A solution is to put energy into a project or cause greater than yourself, and that serves the collective good. Saturn in Sagittarius trines both Mars and Uranus bringing stability, and a balance of old structures with new opportunities.


Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto squares can bring power struggles and disagreements. Ambition is aroused, and there is a strong desire for power and domination. So cultivate the way of peaceful Pisces
and gentle Rabbit during this lunar month. Luck is strongest for Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and those born in Rabbit, Sheep, and Pig years.

Happy new Moon,
