2021 GEMINI SOLAR ECLIPSE begins HORSE MONTH

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

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

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

2020 NEW MOON ECLIPSE begins DOUBLE RAT MONTH

December 11, 2020 § Leave a comment

2020 NEW MOON ECLIPSE in SAGITTARIUS

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.

DOUBLE RAT MONTH

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,

Susan

2020 Full Blue Moon on Halloween

October 28, 2020 § Leave a comment

October 31 2020 at 7:49 am PDT is a full Moon in Taurus. Earth sign Taurus rules the 2nd house of finances, security, and beauty. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, the best sign for the Moon.

This full Moon is also a blue Moon, the second of two full moons in a single calendar month. And this full Moon occurs on Halloween, the solar point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

A powerful astrological influence is that the full Moon conjuncts Uranus in Taurus. Uranus aspects can be liberating, with people seeking freedom, not beingheld back or following routine.

However, people can act compulsively with a lack of discipline and little sense of responsibility. So strive to stay grounded and centered during the peak of this combative Fire Dog month.

Mercury in Libra squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn. There can be miscommunication, especially during Mercury retrograde that ends on November 3. Problems of exaggeration and false information are more serious at this time. Be cautious in your speech, slow down for details, and recheck documents.

Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast if feeling overwhelmed by the full Moon energy. 

Strength and empowerment are for all, and are most profound for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Phoenix (Rooster), Ox, and Dog years.

Reader’s Digest Interview Ox Year 2021

October 28, 2020 § Leave a comment

I was interviewed for Reader’s Digest by Taylor Markarian about the year of the Ox 2021. Ms. Markarian wrote a lovely and informative article, and I enjoyed speaking with her. This article was published October 26, 2020 at Reader’s Digest online.

What 2021 Has in Store for You, Based on Your Chinese Zodiac Sign 
It’s not just about what you expect from the Ox year, but what the Ox expects from you.

The year of the Metal Ox
2020 was the year of the Rat, which typically signifies renewal and the opportunity for success in new ventures. As we now know, the world did go through a distinct changing of the times, but not in the way anyone had hoped. Political turmoil, social unrest, economic decline, and a once in 100-years global pandemic severely altered our lives. While 2020 may seem like it was an epic disaster, the year of the Rat did present us with a new opportunity: to change the world for the better.

Every Chinese zodiac year is defined by one of the five elements. The upcoming 2021 will be the year of the Metal Ox, and its message couldn’t be clearer: Success will come to those who work hard. Really hard. “It’s hard work, duty, discipline,” says Susan Levitt, a professional astrologer and author of five books, including Taoist Astrology. “In agricultural societies, oxen are reliable and strong work animals. They were responsible for the survival of humanity. So what was happening in this Rat year continues over into the Ox year to complete it, ground it, bring it to its resolution.” Here’s what each of the Chinese zodiac signs can do to reap benefits in 2021, the year of the Metal Ox.

Rat
Birth years of the Rat: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020

Next year of the Rat: 2032

These are trying times, and so a rosy picture cannot be painted for anyone. But relatively speaking, the Rat is in a good position in the year of the Ox. “Expect a year with fewer hardships and troubles because Rat is Ox’s good friend,” Levitt says. “But [Ox] is going to want a larger contribution at work. Rat is going to have to follow through and put forth a little more effort this year.” The Ox is an animal that delivers (and expects) dedicated, consistent labor. It being a Metal Ox year only emphasizes that point, as it is a firm, resolute element. Everyone will have to give it their all in 2021, but luckily for the Rat, that work is a little easier when you’re friends with the boss. Kick off the Chinese New Year by acquiring these 11 lucky things to always keep in your home.

Ox (or Buffalo)
Birth years of the Ox: 1913, 1925, 1937,1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

Next year of the Ox: 2021

Other Chinese zodiac signs will be asked to step up their efforts this year, but for the Ox, it’s time to reap the benefits of the cumulative efforts they’ve made year in, year out. “[It will be] a positive and productive year when their hard work is rewarded,” Levitt says. “It’s also an excellent year for having a child, starting a family, and marriage for the Ox.” The Ox has paid its dues and is ready to enjoy the hard-won results. Discover the luckiest birthdates for every Chinese Zodiac Sign to see just how fortunate you may be.

Tiger
Birth years of the Tiger: 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

Next year of the Tiger: 2022

The Tiger is one of the animal signs that will have to learn how to adjust to the work ethics of the Ox. “It can be frustrating for Tiger,” Levitt explains, “because Ox requires Tiger to work hard and become serious. But if Tiger controls their temper and isn’t too rebellious, it could be a very good year for them.” Keep your emotions in check and accept the fact that 2021 is going to ask more from you. It will be worth it, though, since 2022 will be the year of the Tiger. “They’ll be starting a new cycle next year anyway,” Levitt says, “so it’s a good time for them to complete things.” Clean up and resolve any lingering messes or projects, and follow these 11 feng shui tricks to help you beat holiday stress.

Rabbit
Birth years of the Rabbit: 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

Next year of the Rabbit: 2023

Like the Tiger, the Rabbit may struggle in the Ox year as well. “It could be a challenge because of unrealistic standards from others,” Levitt says. “The Rabbit could feel frustrated if rewards are delayed or projects take more time than anticipated.” Ox is very much a proponent of the old adage, “Slow and steady wins the race.” Be patient and know that it’s okay if your work is not immediately rewarded. Fight the urge to make quick decisions, as Levitt warns, “[It’s] not a good time to move or make a big change.” If life starts to feel too pressured, try turning to Western astrology for the best ways to de-stress, based on your Zodiac sign.

Dragon
Birth years of the Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

Next year of the Dragon: 2024

The year 2020 was—again, relatively speaking—a lucky year for the Dragon. But in the year of the Metal Ox, don’t assume everything will be handed to you at once. “Expect a year of steady progress in the reaping of activities begun in the previous Rat year,” Levitt says. “Under Ox’s influence, Dragon must work, not just dream.” Wishful thinking is nice, but in the year of the Metal Ox, it won’t get you very far if you don’t stay focused and grounded. It may be helpful to do a little research and learn why dragons are so important in Chinese culture.

Snake
Birth years of the Snake: 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

Next year of the Snake: 2025

The Snake will be slightly better off in 2021 as compared to 2020, the year of the Rat. “Snake in Ox year is fortunate because Snake is in a harmony triangle with Ox and Rooster,” Levitt explains. “Unlike the previous Rat year, Snake’s work will be rewarded.” Great news! But of course, there is a catch: “Don’t allow Ox’s stubborn influence to make Snake unreasonable or demanding.” Be aware of how you approach difficult subjects and how you handle certain relationships. Consult Western astrology to understand your biggest fears, according to your zodiac sign.

Horse
Birth years of the Horse: 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

Next year of the Horse: 2026

The past year was a difficult one for everyone, but the Horse especially. That is because, according to Levitt, the Rat is the Horse’s natural opposite. The Ox, however, won’t be as hostile toward you. “Horse can succeed by maintaining more control in personal interactions,” she says, noting, “although, romance can be problematic.” The Horse is easily excitable, but the Ox is more even-keeled and steady. Respect that and you will do well in 2021. See what Western astrology has to say about romantic compatibility between the zodiac signs.

Goat (or Sheep)
Birth years of the Goat: 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

Next year of the Goat: 2027

Just as the year of the Rat was difficult for the Horse, the same will be true of Sheep in an Ox year. “It can be a challenging year for Sheep because Ox is opposite Sheep in the 12 animal cycle,” Levitt explains. “If Sheep cannot create new opportunities and has to perform what might be considered repetitive or mundane tasks, stay with the program and don’t allow your finances or morale to be low. Instead, it’s time to develop structure, reduce clutter, and stay focused.” Ox is a simple, straightforward creature. Start your year by organizing yourself, both literally in the home and figuratively in life. Try using these 14 things feng shui experts place in their homes for good health.

Monkey
Birth years of the Monkey: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

Next year of the Monkey: 2028

The Monkey is clever; some might say scheming. More devoted to play than work, the Monkey will try to sidestep the Ox wherever possible. “There can be difficulties that force Monkey to restrain their ambitions,” Levitt says. “If Monkey wants to avoid Ox’s demand for hard work, then they can do that if they go through a messenger or liaison. Monkey’s wit and winning personality will help save the day for the Monkey.” It is not recommended that you refuse the Ox’s call for dedicated labor, but you may have some luck in doing just that if you play your cards right and enlist the help of another zodiac sign. Love Chinese astrology? Read up on the history behind Chinese New Year.

Rooster
Birth years of the Rooster: 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

Next year of the Rooster: 2029

The upcoming year will be most fortunate for the Rooster, as its values most closely align with those of the Ox. As Chinese zodiac signs go, these two are highly compatible, mainly because Rooster is already used to working hard on a daily basis. “Ox offers the stability, faithfulness, and sincerity that Roosters like,” Levitt says. “You can be happy, triumphant, and recover from the previous Rat year difficulties. You’ll work hard under Ox’s influence, but success is foreseen.” Stay true to your nature and this year will be better than the last. Reward yourself with great food and fun in one of the 12 best Chinatowns in America.

Dog
Birth years of the Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

Next year of the Dog: 2030

Unlike the Rooster, the Dog might not be so lucky in 2021. “For the Dog in the Ox year, there could be some minor problems,” Levitt says. This is due to a difference in perspective: While Ox prefers to stay the course, Dog favors trying new things. “Dog fights for the underdog,” Levitt explains. “[Their] revolutionary ideas and altruistic concepts could be challenged.” Dog people are likely to meet resistance in the year of the Metal Ox.

Pig (or Boar)
Birth years of the Pig: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

Next year of the Pig: 2031

Luck will be on the side of the Pig as long as they abide by Ox’s rules. “It’s a good and harmonious year when Pigs’ efforts are appreciated,” Levitt says. “There could be opportunities for career advancement, although Pig must adopt Ox’s strong work ethic.” Pig people are naturally realistic and goal-oriented, which fits in well with the Ox’s love for pragmatism. Remain diligent in your efforts and good fortune will come! Looking for the perfect present? Don’t miss our gift guide for every Zodiac sign.

2020 Virgo New Moon begins Phoenix (Rooster) Month

September 14, 2020 § Leave a comment

September 17 2020 at 4:00 am PDT is a new Moon in Virgo . Earth sign  Virgo rules the sixth house of work, healing, nutrition, and herbology. Focus is on health, making steady progress, and taking care of self and others.

The new Moon and Sun in Virgo trine Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This lunar month will bring increased satisfaction from being disciplined with your work. You’ll find it easier to get organized, and concentrate on planning.

Note that Mars in Aries is retrograde until November 13 and may slow progress, so for the next two months work with consistency and focus. Follow up on details, and complete what you start.

It might be challenging to follow your intuition because the new Moon and Sun square Neptune. There can be a gap between idealism and reality. Therefore, this is not the time for risky ventures. It’s better to use what you know works, and worked in the past, instead of implementing new methods. If uncertain about priorities, contact me for your tarot reading, astrology forecast. or feng shui consultation for guidance.

This new Moon begins the lunar month of the Wood Phoenix, also translated as Rooster or Chicken. Phoenix is conscientious, takes pride in a job well done, understands that rewards take time and hard work, and is a perfectionist. The Wood Phoenix is growth oriented and idealistic. This energy can be motivating and inspiring, especially during Mars retrograde, but avoid the Phoenix tendency to commit to too many projects or responsibilities. 

The retrograde planets of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Earth sign Capricorn continues, emphasizing both financial and political issues. Saturn and Pluto square Mars also continues, that can bring power struggles and disagreements. And during a Phoenix month, people can love a good fight. Instead, use Virgo’s innate analytical skills to solve problems during this lunar month. 

Opportunities for progress and a good harvest this autumn are for all, and are strongest for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

2020 Pisces New Moon in Monkey Month

August 29, 2020 § 1 Comment

September 1st at 10:22 pm PDT is a full Moon in Pisces. Water sign Pisces rules the twelfth house of intuition, emotions, mysticism, dreams, and endings. People can become very emotional during the evening of and the days surrounding this full Moon. Deep-rooted feelings and fears can come to surface about personal matters, and larger issues of Covid trauma, social injustice, and the ending of life cycles. 

This full Moon conjuncts Neptune in Pisces that increases sensitivity and empathy. People are more aware of their surroundings, so take time to beautify and focus on feng shui of your home and workplace, especially if your home is now also your workplace. If feeling very sensitive, like a psychic sponge, this full Moon is time to gently nurture and take care of yourself.  

The Sun in Earth sign Virgo trines Jupiter in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus bringing a more optimistic viewpoint and heightened perception to remain grounded while keeping firm boundaries to avoid becoming emotionally overwhelmed. 

Jupiter conjuncts Saturn, also in Capricorn, to slowly and patiently build on your current foundation, and not indulge in what Buddhists refer to as “monkey mind” during the peak of this Monkey month: jump to a branch, grab a banana, peel it, take a bite, drop it. Then jump to the next branch, grab a banana, peel it, take a bite, drop it —wasting time and effort.

The full Moon sextiles Uranus in earthy Taurus for new understanding and willingness to expand your horizons. You may feel the need to make changes to to your environment, absorb new learning, and explore creative options. Contact me for your tarot reading, feng shui consultation, or astrology forecast for insights and support with your new ideas and decisions.

 The retrograde planets of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Earth sign Capricorn continues, emphasizing both financial and political issues. Saturn and Pluto square Mars in Fire sign Aries that can bring power struggles and disagreements. Ambition is aroused, but there can be frustration with obstacles in your path. Anger can be easily provoked, so take care and avoid dangerous situations or violent people.

go pisces

Opportunities for emotional awareness and psychic strength are for all, and are most deeply experienced by Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and those born in Rabbit, Sheep, Monkey, and Pig years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan
