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.
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,

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,

August 3 2020 is a full Moon in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius rules the 11th house of friends, networks, and social values. Aquarian individuals are unique thinkers who tend not to follow convention, making this full Moon the time for innovative viewpoints, methods, and unanticipated experiences.
If challenged to apply new methods, the full Moon and Sun in Leo square Uranus in Taurus, creating a fixed T-square. There could be relationship difficulties due to conflicting opinions, lack of patience concerning responsibilities, or it’s just hard to stay on your chosen life path. But a sudden Uranus difficulty can help to discover what is bothering you to start eliminating it from your life.
Fortunately, the Leo Sun trines Mars in Aries, Mars’ powerful rulership sign. This Fire trine is favorable for new projects, there’s increased vigor and enthusiasm about motivation and goals, and physical activity of all kinds is very rewarding. Contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast about a new direction.
This full Moon marks the peak of summer at the solar point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox. This is the time in the ancient European agricultural calendar of Lammas, meaning loaf mass, celebrating the threshing of grain and the first fruits of harvest. This full Moon is also the peak of Water Sheep month for a more gentle way of relating to others.
The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn continues, placing focus on financial and political issues. Opportunities for change and awareness are for all, and are most dynamic for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Tiger, Horse, Sheep, and Dog years.

February 8 2020 is a full Moon in Leo. Fire sign Leo rules the 5th house of creativity and children. The full Moon trines Mars in Sagittarius bringing vitality and courage to take action. Venus, newly in Aries, adds Fire and excitement. And in this Tiger month, it can feel like it’s time to pounce.
But not too far! Take things in small digestible bites in this Rat year. Small bites, like a mouse. Then you won’t become overwhelmed or caught up in a rat race.
Everyone starts a new life cycle in this Rat year. So make your plans now, do a small bit every day towards your goal, and reward comes at harvest time. Autumn Equinox is September 22. Winter is the most fortunate season in a Rat year.
Things will take time. Save sweeping change for 2022 Water Tiger year. Then you can follow your feelings in springtime. But for now, Rat is a planner, and this spring of Rat year is ideal to plan, organize, and focus on feng shui to clear the path for new opportunities.
2020 and 2021 are Metal years. In feng shui, the element Metal is represented by the clean, pristine environment that shines like real metal. If there ever was a time to reduce and remove clutter, it’s now. Rat year is excellent to organize and clean up, especially your financial records. There’s always a focus on money in a Rat year.
The element Metal correlates to the bedroom. Metal is a yin element, and the bedroom is a yin room for rest and sleep. 2020 and 2021 are the years to make your bedroom a healing (and tidy) sanctuary.
Rats are nocturnal animals. The hours of the Rat are 11 pm – 1 am. Those born during Rat year or hour can have a predisposition for insomnia. The Rat mind is always working and thinking, creating and planning. So 2020 is the year to create peaceful bedrooms for you and your family.
Mercury will be retrograde for three weeks from February 16 until March 9. Mercury is retrograde in Water sign Pisces for increased sensitivity.
Luck is strongest for Fire signs Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius and those born in Rat, Tiger, and Dragon years.

August 15 2019 is a full Moon in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius rules the 11th house of ideas, inspiration, and ideals, plus friends, groups, and the larger collective of all humanity. This full Moon, and as the lunar cycle wanes, is a good time for networking, sharing concepts, and making connections that expand your circle. Team work leads to success, and think tanks bring interesting results.
This full Moon is the peak of Monkey month to experiment and be open to all possibilities. Fine to innovate or take risks. Contact me for your tarot or astrology session about new paths.
The full Moon is opposite the Sun, Venus, and Mars in Leo. There’s Fire and passion for creativity and to accomplish goals. Just reign in Leo extravagance that focuses on a passing fancy or superficial attraction, especially under the influence of mercurial Monkey.
Full Moon energy is inspirational, and is strongest for Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra and those born in Monkey, Horse, and Dog years.

July 31 – August 29 2019
July 31 is a new Moon in Leo. Fire sign Leo rules the 5th house of art, creativity, and children. The new Moon, Sun, Venus, and Mars are all in Leo making this August a powerful month for romance, beauty, and love. Mercury goes direct on this new Moon making it easier for travel, new experiences, and innovative self expression.
Very fortunate is that the the new Moon, Sun, and Mars trine Jupiter in Sagittarius. Doors can open because timing is opportune for new enterprises. There can be a pleasant sense of well being and increased generosity. All these Jupiter trines are basically favorable for success in business, financial matters, and long-range planning.
The new Moon, Sun, and Venus square Uranus in Taurus. It’s understandable to want to break free of limiting circumstances. But that could make relationships unpredictable. Even stable relationships benefit from readjustments that bring more freedom and independence. Call me or send an email to schedule a tarot or astrology session about your choices and plans.
This new Moon begins the month of the Water Monkey. Brave Monkey is king in the Chinese zodiac, just as Leo is king in Western astrology. Monkey is smart, sharp, quick, and a bit of a magician. The element Water brings emotions and deep feelings so Water Monkey is sincere and caring. Luck is strongest for Fire signs Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius and those born in Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake years.

July 27 2018 is a full Moon eclipse in Aquarius. Air sign Aquarius rules the 11th house of friends, groups, and the larger collective of all humanity. And collective humanity could experience some conflict as this eclipsed full Moon conjuncts Mars that’s retrograde in Leo until August 27.
So not the best time to forge ahead, especially with communication planet Mercury retrograde, also in Leo, until August 18. But this can be a good time to work collectively and in community under the influence of Aquarius, and during this Dog year when the underdog is championed and the truth is sniffed out.
Emotions and passions are strong as the Sun in Fire sign Leo conjuncts a lunar node, meaning there’s a heightened sense of fate or destiny. The Sun, lunar node, full Moon, and Mars all square rebel planet Uranus in Taurus. There can be unexpected disruptive energy, or ego conflicts and disagreements. People could be impatient, accident prone, or jump to the wrong conclusions if there are unexpected emotional upsets.
Yet these Uranus squares can be a very liberating influence if repressed tensions come to the surface to be healed, especially during an eclipse. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation during this challenging lunar cycle.
Fortunately, Saturn trines Uranus offering needed stability between old and new to keep your present life structure while exploring new experiences. Even with the Uranian desire for complete freedom, this Saturn trine brings focus to maintain responsibilities.
More lucky trines are Venus trines Pluto for psychological insights about relationships, and deeper understanding of personal motivations. Jupiter trines Neptune enhancing idealism, social justice, and the quest for universal spiritual truth. Luck is strongest for Air signs Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini and those born in Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig years.

SUPER BLUE BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE in LEO
January 31 2018 is a full Moon that’s a super Moon, meaning it will appear larger and brighter than usual in the night sky. This full Moon is also a Blue Moon that occurs when there are two full Moons during one month of the Gregorian calendar. January 1 and 31 are both full Moons, so January 31 is a Blue Moon. This also a total lunar eclipse when Earth’s shadow falls on the full Moon. This shadow will have a reddish tint, and is referred to as a Blood Moon.
This super Blue Blood Moon eclipse is in creative and and flamboyant Leo. Fire sign Leo is the ruler of the 5th house of creativity, art, and children. Perhaps the eclipse can reveal hidden artistic talents. The Sun conjuncts Venus to socialize and attract new people, and express creativity through relationships. Venus aspects Jupiter to seek beauty, and can inspire creative expression, but can also inspire living large and overspending. Saturn and Neptune are unaspected so people can be unclear about their actions or objectives.
Fortunately, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn help keep things grounded, as does the Ox influence during these last two weeks of Ox month — and the final two weeks of Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year. Ox and Phoenix are very compatible because they are both realistic, hard-working, and pragmatic. Time to clean up, organize, and prepare for the next new Moon that begins the year of the Dog.
February 2 marks the solar point between winter solstice and spring equinox. Animals awaken after winter hibernation, hence Groundhog Day for augury from the movement of animals. The seasonal wheel turns towards springtime. Chinese New Year is a spring festival that begins on the new Moon on February 15 2018. Contact me for your 2018 Dog Year astrology forecast. For the next two weeks, luck is strongest for Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries and those born during the years of the Monkey, Rat, Ox, and Dragon.
Happy full Moon,
