The WEEK in CHINESE ASTROLOGY
Highlights this week are double Wood Horse Tuesday, double Sheep Wednesday, and New Moon at 3:42 pm PDT on Saturday that begins Water MONKEY (black Monkey) month!
Mon July 21 is Water SNAKE day. Moon sextiles Sun and Jupiter for kind connections with others. Moon squares Neptune bringing increased sensitivity to your environment; Snake loves to beautify. Mental activity as Mercury trines Saturn and Neptune, plus Mercury is in a T-square with Pluto and Uranus. Contemplation brings insights on this pensive Water Snake day. Sun conjuncts Jupiter for general good luck. Venus trines Mars for healing in relationships. Snake day luck strong for Snake, Ox, Dragon, and Phoenix (Rooster). Snake hours 9 -1 am.
Tues July 22 is DOUBLE WOOD HORSE day: a Wood Horse day in this Wood Horse year! Can have a breakthrough and cover much ground. But be careful because people can be competitive. Mercury and Venus trine Neptune for clear communication and insights; Horse is a highly instinctive animal. Yet Mars squares Sun and Jupiter so easy to be overly enthusiastic or dream too big. Also easy to overspend. Double Wood Horse day luck strong for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog. Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.
Wed July 23 is DOUBLE SHEEP day: a Wood Sheep day in this Metal Sheep month! Venus trines Neptune for compassion, tenderness, and to see the best in others — perfect on a double Sheep day. Moon trines Mars bringing courage to stand up for yourself, and strength of your convictions. Sheep love art so enjoy this evening with a nice meal, a film, and a little romance. Double Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.
Thurs July 24 is a Fire MONKEY day. Lots of Monkey activity with something for everyone! Moon conjuncts Mercury and Venus to express emotions, engage others, and talk your way to success. But this conjunction is opposite Pluto so best to complete projects as energy winds down to New Moon on Saturday — that begins MONKEY month! Sun conjunct Jupiter continues for good fortune. Moon and Venus trine Neptune for romance and dreams. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.
Fri July 25 is Fire PHOENIX (Rooster) day. Moon conjunct Mercury curiosity and restlessness is grounded by two trines with Saturn. Can be realistic and practical on Phoenix day. But Moon and Mercury square Uranus bringing a brisk tempo so keep up and stay strong. Don’t get bogged down analyzing emotions. Good to clean house on final day of Sheep month. New Moon tomorrow starts Monkey month. Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.
Sat July 26 is a New Moon at 3:42 pm PDT that begins the month of the Water MONKEY (black Monkey). Sun, Moon, and Jupiter are all in a pack that is made very fortunate by the inclusion of Jupiter. It’s Monkey month in Horse year when anything can happen! Venus, Saturn, and Neptune in a grand trine to start Monkey month with good fortune and luck in romance! But Sun and Moon square Mars so keep chaos limited. Monkey month is luckiest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Happy New Moon!
Sun July 27 is an Earth PIG day, the fortunate golden Pig. Venus in a grand trine so perfect for social times! Relationships are solid and romance is highlighted. Moon trines Uranus for something different. Uranus squares Mercury, Venus, and Pluto so drive carefully. Be the peacemaker in any conflict. Pig day luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.
Good luck and have a great week,
