Highlights this week are double Snake Monday, full Moon on Tuesday at 6:45 pm PDT, double Metal Monkey Thursday, and an easy Pig Sunday.
Monday Aug 19 is a double Snake day; the day of the Fire Snake in this Water Snake year. Don’t worry that Water extinguishes Fire. Today is for empathy, compassion, and insights to what makes you & others tick. Moon squares Saturn good for contemplation and quiet time. Moon trines Venus for a creative outlook. Take care and heal in this Water Snake year. Emotional energy builds to full Moon tomorrow. Luck is strong for Snake, Rooster (Phoenix), Ox, Dragon and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am (triple Snake).
Tues Aug 20 is a full Moon at 6:45 pm PDT on a lively Earth Horse day. Energy is high from the full Moon, a Horse day, plus the energy of this go-getter Monkey month. The full Moon is opposite Sun and Mercury for soulful discussion when feelings override thoughts. People can be fickle and tell tall tales because both Horse and Monkey like to exaggerate. Luck is strong for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.
Wed Aug 21 is a fortunate Earth Sheep day. Moon trines Jupiter and Saturn for easy flow of energy. Moon conjuncts Neptune for daydreams, creativity, and not too much hard work. Good for feng shui improvements to add beauty to your home and workplace. Fine to indulge a bit in the spirit of the Sheep. Luck is strong for Sheep, Hare, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.
Thurs Aug 22 is a strong double Metal Monkey (white Monkey) day; a Metal Monkey day in this Metal Monkey month. Moon trines Mars for physical strength, courage, and the ability to get a lot done. You can assert yourself and stand your ground if need be. Sun and Mercury are opposite Neptune so not the best day for permanent decisions or to follow all hunches. Plans could become Monkey daydreams of grandeur. Luck is strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.
Fri Aug 23 is a smart Metal Rooster (Phoenix) day. Moon conjuncts Uranus to feel impulses and act rashly. But rash impulses are just fine with both changeable Roster and malleable Monkey in this Monkey month. Moon is opposite Venus and squares Jupiter so can be indulgent or dramatic. But indulgence and drama are what Rooster finds interesting. So embrace the ups and downs of life as feelings and ideas change throughout the day. Luck is strong for Rooster, Ox, Dragon, and Snake and during Rooster hours 5 pm – 7 pm.
Sat Aug 24 is the day of the heroic Water Dog (black Dog). Venus squares Pluto for challenges in relationships, can be insecure or too intense. Sun conjuncts Mercury for frank talk and discussions, can communicate your point of view to clear the air. Luck is strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse and during Dog hours 7 pm – 9 pm.
Sun Aug 25 is a fun Water Pig day. Enjoy life, eat well, and share your good fortune with others. Moon trines Sun and Mercury so energy is very pleasant, you feel in harmony with self and others, and are in touch with your feelings. But Sun and Mercury are opposite Neptune so circumstances might not be clear or things might not make sense. So now is not a day for permanent commitments or disciplined decision making. Luck is strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep and during Pig hours 9 pm – 11 pm.
Good luck and have a great week!
