2020 Aquarius Full Moon in Sheep Month

August 1, 2020 § 1 Comment

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.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

2020 Gemini New Moon begins Second Snake Month

May 19, 2020 § Leave a comment

May 22 2020 at 10:39 am PDT is a new Moon in Gemini. Air sign Gemini rules the 3rd house of ideas and communication. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all in Gemini for social times, close personal interactions, and virtual group activities.

The new Moon and Sun trine Jupiter and Saturn. Trines with Jupiter are considered fortunate. There is creative potential for new interests and and new learning. And there can be increased understanding and concern for the general public, even the welfare of strangers. Trines with Saturn can bring practical discipline and self control. It’s easier to focus energy, examine life structures and habits, and lay a solid groundwork especially in business.

The new Moon and Sun square Mars in Pisces. Squares to Mars can bring ego conflicts, irritability, and impatience. You could see belligerent actions in others. It’s best to avoid any conflicts with authorities, and strive to be understanding of other’s emotions.

Intimate relationships can be effected by Mercury and Venus square Neptune in Pisces. Mercury square Neptune can bring misunderstood communications and increased worry. Venus square Neptune can indicate unrealistic standards in partnerships. Under the influence of Neptune, people are often reluctant to face reality. Plus Venus is retrograde from May 12 to June 24 so it’s better to not dwell on past disappointments.

This new Moon in Gemini begins the second lunar month of introspective Metal Snake. Consider this Snake lunar month the calm before the Water Horse storm that begins on the next new Moon on June 20 Summer Solstice. During the month of independent Horse, no one wants to be told what to do. And with the element Water, people can be ruled by their emotions.

The Full Moon on June 5, new Moon on June 20, and full Moon on July 4 will be eclipses when what is hidden can come to light. So use the next two weeks leading up to the the full Moon to get your affairs in order. During these changing times, my services are available for you. Contact me for your tarot card reading and astrology forecast to help plan and organize. Opportunities are strongest for Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and those born in Snake, Tiger, and Dog years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

2020 Taurus New Moon begins Two Snake Months

April 20, 2020 § Leave a comment

TAURUS NEW MOON begins two METAL SNAKE MONTHS

April 22 – June 19 2020

April 22 at 7:26 pm PDT is a new Moon in Taurus that begins Metal Snake lunar month. The next new Moon on May 22 at 10:39 am PDT is a new Moon in Gemini that begins the second Metal Snake month in a row.

This is because 2020 is both a solar and a lunar leap year. In Western lunar astrology, there will be two Cancer new Moons in June and July. In Chinese lunar astrology, there will be two Snake new Moons in April and May bringing many opportunities to shed the skins of the past, pare down, and simplify!

Snake is a symbol of wisdom and rebirth. Snake is a natural theologian who likes to coil up and contemplate, making these two months the time for introspection, planning, and seeking answers within. If home bound due to Covid-19, the quiet life blends better with Snake energy than any other astrology sign. The element Metal rules the lungs in Chinese medicine, so especially take care of your lungs. In this Metal Rat year, and during these two Metal Snake months, there is an emphasis on lung health, also a problem of Covid-19.

The new Moon, Sun, and Uranus are all in Earth sign Taurus. Taurus rules the 2nd house of money, possessions, and the material realm. So focus is on earthly matters of health, nutrition, and finances. But also Taurean beauty, and the earthly and sensual pleasures of life. The new Moon and Sun conjunction bring strength to your domestic life, and to your emotions about domestic life, all emphasized during this shut down. Uranus brings sudden change, and a unique way of expressing yourself. But it can also bring upset in your daily routine.

The new Moon, Sun, and Uranus square Saturn in Aquarius. Due to the influence of Saturn, life events are slowed down. Circumstances force us to use caution, and restrictions can feel overwhelming during this pandemic. If overwhelmed, remember to take steps in small digestible bites during this Rat year when success arrives in autumn.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are conjunct in late Capricorn and early Aquarius. Jupiter’s expansion, Saturn’s structure, and Pluto’s rebirth bring transformation on may levels, especially in the Capricorn financial and Aquarius political arenas.

To see the big picture, contact me for your six months or one year astrology forecast. We can start your forecast on any date. Or we can schedule a tarot card reading to answer specific questions. Opportunities for quiet reflection and inspiration are for all, and are most powerful for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Phoenix (Rooster), Ox, and Monkey years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

2020 Libra Full Moon in Dragon Month

April 3, 2020 § Leave a comment

April 7 2020 at 7:35 pm PST is a full Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of marriage and partnerships. There’s more focus on intimate relationships at this time, especially with people together in quarantine.

This full Moon is in a bucket chart configuration, so emotions are intensified and empathy is stronger. See in the graphic below how the Moon is to the far side of the chart, like the handle of a bucket or basket. So everything, from first perceptions to the resulting actions, is all filtered through the full Moon of how things feel. 

Emotions can seem as if they are magnified with increased intensity during the peak of this Dragon month. Fortunately, Venus in Gemini trines both Mars and Saturn, newly in Aquarius. Venus trine Mars is very favorable for love, romance, and enjoyable connections with others. Venus trine Saturn brings stability to relationships, and people can be more realistic in their expectations. This is also a positive transit to discuss issues and find resolution.

The full Moon and Sun square Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn so don’t take on more than you can handle. It’s better to be pragmatic, and stay with tried and true methods.

For long range plans, contact me for your six months or one year astrology forecast. We can start your forecast on any date. Opportunities for emotional insights are for all, and are most powerful for the Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dragon, Tiger, and Horse years.

Happy full Moon,

FENG SHUI during QUARANTINE

March 19, 2020 § 1 Comment

 

The first tip is to stay tidy while in an enclosed space!
The second tip is to not become discouraged by delays in life plans.

Do a small bit every day towards your goal, and reward comes at harvest time in this Rat year 2020. Autumn Equinox is September 22. Winter is the most fortunate season in a Rat year.

During quarantine, create good luck and maintain good health by doing feng shui in small digestible bites, like a mouse. Then you won’t become overwhelmed or caught up in a rat race. Rat year info.

Accept that things will take time. Save sweeping change or drastic measures for Water Tiger 2022. Then you can follow your feelings in springtime. But for now, Rat is a planner, and this spring of Rat year is ideal to focus on feng shui to clear the path for new opportunities.

CHINESE MEDICINE

Feng shui is part of Chinese medicine whereby health can be restored and maintained in a balanced and peaceful environment. Chinese medical theory is explained in my book Taoist Feng Shui that you can read while in quarantine.

TAOIST FENG SHUI in Spanish. The vases are lovely, but not dried-out leaves!

2020 and 2021 are Metal years. In feng shui, the element Metal is represented by the clean, pristine environment that shines like real metal. Regardless of the lucky element in your birth chart, everyone benefits by developing the element Metal for the next two years.

If there ever was a time to reduce and remove clutter, it’s now while you are stuck indoors! Rat year is an excellent time to organize and clean up, especially your financial records. There’s always a focus on money in a Rat year, and change in the stock market.

The element Metal correlates to the bedroom. (5 Elements info below.) 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. Since you are home and have time, then transform your living room.

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.

FIVE ELEMENTS

This summer when the COVID-19 is under control, boost energy and start a new cycle by painting your home.

What color exterior paint? Walk around the block and look at the colors of the neighboring buildings. Paint the color that looks the best with the others, and therefore improves everyone’s property.

The energy of any room can be transformed by adding a coat of fresh paint. If all rooms of your home have white or ivory walls, all white is too much of the element Metal that can lead to arguing.

So paint one room with color, or trim a room with color. Don’t know which room to paint? Paint the room most in need of being refreshed.

Remember, do the work in small, digestible bites in this Rat year. It’s easier with a group because Rat loves the pack. Start with one room, and by the end of summer, the whole house is done.

Each room of your home correlates to the five Taoist elements of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood:

FIRE/HEART/LIVING ROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element Fire is represented by the heart. The living room is the heart of the home. Your living room is best with accents of the bright and lively Fire colors red, purple, orange, and all shades of red. Bright accents stimulate conversation and activity. Strong FIRE brings passion, energy, and creativity.

EARTH/STOMACH/DINING ROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element earth is the stomach. The dining room is where we eat and digest food. The dining room is best in earthen tones of gold, terra cotta, or other soft yin colors. Red walls (Fire) in a dining area are too stimulating and people eat too fast. Strong EARTH brings stability, balance, and patience.

METAL/LUNGS/BEDROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element metal is the lungs. The bedroom is where we sleep and breathe deeply while resting. Best bedroom colors are white, cream, and soft pastels. Avoid bright big prints on bedding and drapery, especially in children’s bedrooms. Colorful prints are too yang and not restful. Strong METAL brings logic, clarity, and intelligence.

WATER/KIDNEYS/BATHROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element water is the kidneys. In the bathroom, paint this room in a soft, quiet, and calm color for peaceful elimination of waste and for soothing bathing or showering. Light blue is fine. Strong WATER brings wisdom, peace, and serenity.

WOOD/LIVER/KITCHEN – In Chinese medicine, the element wood is the liver. Wood is used in a kitchen to feed the cooking fire. The kitchen must be kept very clean because this is where food is prepared, so white walls are best. But green accents or a plant are recommended to introduce the Wood element into this Wood room. Strong WOOD brings enthusiasm, spirituality, and growth.

LUCK ENTERS

Then start at your front door. Clean your entry to welcome all the good luck that will come into your home and place of business. Wash, sweep, or vacuum the front steps, porch, entry hall, lobby — whatever the entry is where you live.

Make this area clean, well lit, and inviting. Check the entry’s lighting fixtures, make sure the doorbell works, and paint touch-ups on scuff marks. Add an welcome mat if needed. Or replace an old one if it’s worn out its welcome.

For a business, make sure that your entry is clean and inviting, and that there is good signage with clear address numbers. A business must be easy to find, and attractive to enter. One third of business success is good feng shui at the entrance.

In this Metal year, stop clutter before it builds by maintaining the habit of tidying up before you leave your home or office. Then a peaceful environment awaits you when you return. Especially at your place of work, it’s not favorable to leave a mess over the weekend. Same for quarantine at home. Clean up your work space at the end of your work day.

1ST THING SEEN

TAOIST FENG SHUI in Russian. INTRODUCTION TO TAROT will be published in Russian this year.

What is the first thing seen when you enter your home? And when you enter each room? Your eye goes somewhere, so direct the eye by organizing each room so that the first thing seen sets a pleasant tone to make the room inviting to enter.

Make sure that the first thing seen in each room is clean and inspiring. You do not want to see a pile of paperwork or any type of clutter. Stay tidy, especially during this element Metal year, the time for a clean, pristine environment.

 

BA-GUA MAP

A popular style of feng shui is to overlay a map of eight tri-grams, or ba-gua in Chinese. For those who apply this method, focus on the Wealth corner in Rat year to create an abundance of money.

The wealth corner is located in the far left-hand corner from the entry. Every room of your home and office has a Wealth corner to embellish during this Rat year.

Also of importance is the Fame or Reputation are right next to the Wealth corner, on the middle wall farthest from the entry door. You want to maintain the good favor of others, and avoid gossip in a Rat year.

LUCKY PLANTS

Healthy plants in your home and workplace increase abundance. And plants offer fresh oxygen. I have many large Chinese evergreen indoor plants, and I can smell the oxygen they give off. If you have plants, you have time to focus on them now that you are in quarantine. If you don’t have plants, research a plant to add to your home after the quarantine. I recommend the Chinese evergreen. And they make a lovely lily (see pic).

Indoors or out, it’s best to have plants that stay evergreen all year, and that do not lose their leaves in any season.

For flower lovers, lucky flowers are orchids, peonies, and lilies. Roses are fine in a home or office, but remove them if there’s arguing. Avoid thorny plants like cacti. Don’t have a green thumb? Try silk flowers. I keep orchids, indoors and out, because their flower lasts so long.

Remember, take small bites in a Rat year. And be consistent. If removing clutter, start with one drawer. Then the next one. Want a big life change? Start making plans now, and pursue them in small nibbles. But keep nibbling. Keep in mind that results arrive in autumn.

Best,

Susan

2020 Virgo Full Moon in Rabbit Month

March 6, 2020 § 1 Comment

March 9 2020 10:48 am PDT is a full Moon in Virgo. Earth sign Virgo rules the 6th house of health and service. Time to focus on work, nutrition, and practical matters.

The full Moon trines Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Earth sign Capricorn. These trines create an easier flow of energy for activities, everything from taxes to sharing abundant springtime meals. For sky watchers, this is a super moon so will appear larger than usual in the night sky.

Energy is strong during the peak of this Earth Rabbit month to discern what is worth nurturing this spring, then what to cultivate throughout the year. Contact me for your tarot card reading for greater insights.

Diplomatic Rabbit’s finer points are strengthened by Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus. People are open to enjoying sensual and earthy Taurean pleasures. Rifts in relationships can be smoothed out.

The Sun conjuncts Neptune in Pisces. Communication can be misinterpreted, but also telepathic! Mercury retrograde ends on this full Moon, although we can still feel the retrograde influence until the new Moon on March 24.

Luck is strongest for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus and those born in Rabbit, Ox, and Snake years.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

2020 Pisces New Moon begins Gold Rabbit Month

February 19, 2020 § 1 Comment

bun and snowman

February 23 2020 is a new Moon in Pisces. Water sign Pisces rules the 12th house of spirituality and mysticism. People are guided by their emotions, with increased empathy of how others are feeling. The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Neptune are all in Pisces. Fresh understanding can begin this springtime.

Emotions may be strong, but Mercury is retrograde February 16 until the March 9 full Moon, and no planets are in Air signs. Fortunately, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn make a harmonious sextile with planets in Pisces. Abstract concepts can be brought down to earth. Mars trines Uranus in Taurus for personal growth and new experiences. Contact me for your tarot card reading for springtime.

This new Moon begins Earth Rabbit month. Earth Rabbit is the fortunate golden Rabbit. The one born in a golden year (yin Earth) is safe, protected, and blessed by good fortune. A gold astrology sign will always have life’s necessities of food and shelter, and will enjoy the help of strangers.

Gold Rabbit’s refined intuition and psychic abilities are their best guide. They think and meditate before acting on plans. More rational and pragmatic than other Rabbits, they can plan the future realistically by combining intuitive insights with earth-plane reality.

This lunar month, combine Pisces sensitivity with gold Rabbit and Capricorn’s earthly focus. Accomplishments are easiest in small digestible bites in 2020 Rat year, small bites like a mouse. Kindness is key, and gold Rabbit can be a superb diplomat.

Luck is strongest for Waters signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio; Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus; and those born in Rabbit, Sheep, Pig, and Horse years.

Happy new Moon,

sf full moon

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.

2020 Cancer Full Moon Eclipse in Ox Month

January 8, 2020 § 1 Comment

lunar eclipse info  Lunar Eclipse in Cancer

January 10 2020 is a full Moon eclipse in Cancer. Water sign Cancer rules the 4th house of home and family. This eclipse is time to shine light on your home and living situation, to focus on self care, and care of family. Cancer is the astrology that rules the Moon, making this full Moon easier to get in touch with feelings. The full Moon eclipse trines Neptune in Pisces for increased sensitivity and imagination.

The full Moon eclipse is opposite the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn rules the 10th house of work and career. So there could be a question of how to balance Cancer nurturing with Capricorn career obligations. People could be carrying too many burdens, or the burdens of others, especially now during the peak of Ox lunar month.

Slow, strong, and steady is how Ox succeeds. This is easier to do with many planets in Capricorn. So pace yourself, and patiently listen to others. For some, it may be time for career change for a healthier lifestyle. Contact me for your personal Rat year astrology forecast for planning and timing in 2020.

Saturn Conjunct Pluto

A dynamic aspect of the Capricorn stellium is Saturn conjunct Pluto. Saturn represents structure and organization. The structure of Saturn, especially financial and government structures under the sign of Capricorn, blends with Pluto. Pluto represents power and transformation, and can bring liberating change — or change like a plutonium bomb. On both a global and personal scale, some structures come to an end. Seeds can be planted to start a new fourteen year Saturn cycle.

The new Moon in two weeks begins the year of the Rat. Join me for my 2020 Year of the Metal Rat talk on Sunday January 26 from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM at East West Bookshop, 324 Castro Street in Mountain View CA. I look forward to seeing you there. Link to tickets.

Happy full Moon,

Susan
