Posted by on Jun 14, 2013 in Astrology, Chinese Astrology | 2 comments


Highlights this week are a powerful fire Dragon day on Wednesday, a double Snake Thursday on Summer Solstice at 10:04 pm PDT, much strength on double Earth Horse Friday, and a white Monkey full Moon on Sunday at 4:32 am PDT!

Mon June 17 is the day of the Wood Tiger (green Tiger). The element Wood gives Tiger a double dose of energy, optimism, and enthusiasm. Plus the Moon trines Mars for added courage and confidence. Mars sextiles Uranus so you might be more impulsive and changeable. And the Moon opposes Uranus and squares Pluto so don’t be accident prone today! Luck is strongest for Tiger, Dog, Horse, and Pig and during Tiger hours 3 am – 5 am.

Tues June 18 is a kind Wood Rabbit day. The Moon trines Sun and Jupiter for a pleasant sense of well being,increased generosity, and more concern for others. But the Moon squares Mercury and Venus for either light-hearted affection or too much direct talk. Either way, it’s best to avoid controversy. Artistic pursuits succeed on this Rabbit day as Saturn trines Neptune; keep your head in the clouds but your feet firmly planted on the ground. Today is fortunate to add feng shui enhancements such as fresh flowers and objects of beauty. Luck is strongest for Rabbit, Sheep, Dog, and Pig and during Rabbit hours 5 am – 7 am.

Wed June 19 is powerful Fire Dragon (red Dragon) of good luck and good fortune! A grand trine is formed in the heavens as the Moon blends with Saturn to trine Sun, Jupiter, and Neptune. Moon blending with serious Saturn can bring sadness or a sense of loneliness. But 5 planets in a grand trine bring creative inspiration and amazing luck, sudden expansion and growth, and doors can open for you easily today. Luck is strongest for Dragon, Rat, Snake, and Monkey and during Dragon hours 7 am – 9 am.

Thurs June 20 is a deep-feeling double Snake day; a Fire Snake day in a Water Snake year. Mercury blends with Venus for kind and loving communication. The Sun blends with Jupiter for expansion, good luck, and growth. The Moon trines Mercury and Venus for romance, sentimental feelings, and enjoyment in relationships. At 10:04 pm PDT is Summer Solstice, the longest day in the northern hemisphere when Mother nature is at her peak. Great to be outdoors and celebrate nature! Luck is strongest for Snake, Ox, Monkey, and Rooster (Phoenix) and during Snake hours 9 am – 11 am.
Fri June 21 is a double Earth Horse day; an Earth Horse day in an Earth Horse month. This is a lucky day for strength, courage, and taking action as the Sun, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune make a very harmonious and fortunate grand trine. Plus the Moon trines Uranus for something different and a sense of adventure. Good to be active, athletic, and get outdoors. Luck is strongest for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog and during Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm.

Sat June 22 is a gentle Earth Sheep day, the fortunate golden Sheep, to take care of yourself and others. Life can flow as the lucky grand trine continues of Sun, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune. Sheep love beauty so tonight enjoy a nice meal, indulgent luxury, and a warm relaxing bath. And Sheep love the flock so be social and enjoy the companionship of others. But the Moon is opposite Mars so don’t get too excited or giddy. Energy builds to the full Moon tomorrow. Luck is strongest for Sheep, Hare, Horse, and Pig and during Sheep hours 1 pm – 3 pm.

Sun June 23 is a focused Metal Monkey (white Monkey) day on the full Moon! The Moon blends with Pluto for added intensity and the desire to get to the bottom of things and find out all secrets. Under the influence of the curious and probing Monkey, affairs do not get out of hand because the Sun blends with Jupiter in a big grand trine so all ends well. Plus the Moon sextiles Saturn and Neptune bringing needed calmness and sensitivity. Luck is strongest for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake and during Monkey hours 3 pm – 5 pm.

Have a great week!
