LUNAR NEW YEAR
Please join me Saturday February 11 2017 at 1 pm at East West Books in Mt. View CA for my annual Chinese New Year talk 2017 Year of the Fire Phoenix (Rooster).
FULL MOON ECLIPSE
The full Moon on February 10, 2017 is a lunar eclipse in Fire sign Leo. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, so this full Moon eclipse concerns Leo issues of creativity, courage, and self expression. Five planets are in Fire signs, and it’s still the month of the Tiger for the next two weeks, so pouncing on opportunities and taking action is fortunate.
The full Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries, creating a lucky grand Fire trine. People are more realistic about goals than in 2016 Fire Monkey year, and you can build on your current foundation to create something new. Mercury is not retrograde until April 9 so this springtime is ideal for creativity and action.
Romance is favored as Venus conjunct Mars in Aries brings love, passion, and a spark of romance. Plus it’s a good time to smooth out relationship issues as the full Moon wanes.
Many sextiles between Air and Fire signs bring harmony: Mercury exalted in Aquarius sextiles Venus to more easily communication emotions, and inspires writing and poetry. Jupiter in Libra sextiles the full Moon and Saturn for warm feelings, maturity, and depth of awareness. The Sun in Aquarius sextiles Saturn and Uranus to organize your thoughts, expand your perception, and be open to new learning.
Jupiter is opposite Uranus and squares Pluto in Capricorn in a cardinal T-square. Ambitions are aroused in this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year, but discipline may be required to follow rules or work within limits.
Happy full Moon,
