June 16 – 22 , 2014

Highlights this week are four Horses on Monday, and SUMMER SOLSTICE at 3:51 am PT on enjoyable Pig Saturday!

Mon June 16 is an Earth HORSE day in Metal Horse month in Wood Horse year! Horse hours 11 am – 1 pm are the time of four Horses! Moon trines Mars adding strength and vigor. But Sun conjuncts Mercury to see only your viewpoint like a Horse wearing blinders. Mars opposite Uranus and square Pluto so can be testy. Plus Moon squares Saturn for impatience. Just move through challenges quickly, not analyze. But love freedom and independence, classic Horse traits, as Moon sextiles Uranus. Horse day luck strong for Horse, Tiger, Sheep, and Dog.

Tues June 17 is an Earth SHEEP day, the fortunate golden Sheep. The Moon conjuncts Neptune for increased sensitivity and kindness — qualities loved by the Sheep. Be open to psychic impressions. The Moon trines Sun and Mercury to communicate your ideas and be creative. Sheep day luck strong for Sheep, Rabbit, Horse, and Pig. Sheep hours 1 – 3 pm.

Wed June 18 is a Metal MONKEY (white Monkey) day. Moon conjunct Neptune continues for increased empathy and heightened intuition. But lighten up on this Monkey day! Moon trines Saturn, and Venus sextiles Jupiter, for generosity and to be at peace with the world. Good for a mid-week party or get-together. Monkey day luck strong for Monkey, Rat, Dragon, and Snake. Monkey hours 3 – 5 pm.

Thurs June 19 is a last quarter Moon (waning half Moon) on a Metal PHOENIX (Rooster) day. Time for balance and to take care. The Moon trines Jupiter and sextiles Venus for enjoyment, not serious organizing or decision making. Sun conjuncts Mercury to see only your perspective. And Moon squares Sun and Mercury so can be confusing, not a wide scope of vision. Phoenix day luck strong for Phoenix, Ox, Dragon, and Snake. Phoenix hours 5 – 7 pm.

Fri June 20 is a Water DOG (black Dog) day. Dog days are naturally fortunate in this Horse month and Horse year. Emotions are passionate as the Moon is opposite Mars, conjuncts Uranus, and squares Pluto. Under the influence of Dog, the truth is most important. But there are three squares to Pluto so avoid a being a crusader for an unrealistic cause. On a more personal level, you can instinctively determine who is your real friend. Dog day luck strong for Dog, Rabbit, Tiger, and Horse. Dog hours 7 – 9 pm.

Sat June 21 is a Water PIG day on SUMMER SOLSTICE! Now is the longest day in the northern hemisphere at 3:51 am PT. Time for party and celebration on this festive Water Pig day! Enjoy Mother Nature at her peak. Feast on fresh fruits and give thanks for the abundance of Mother Earth in her fullness. Let the fiery Sun burn away all that is unwanted, all that is no longer useful. Feng shui improvements are favored at this time, especially enhancements that add beauty. Moon conjuncts Uranus for something different. Plus Moon sextiles Mercury for easy conversations. Pig day luck strong for Pig, Tiger, Rabbit, and Sheep. Pig hours 9 – 11 pm.

Sun June 22 a Wood RAT day. Moon sextiles Neptune for increased empathy, interest in others. Moon trines Pluto for stronger emotions. But Sun conjuncts Mercury so not the widest scope for problem solving. Mars, Uranus, and Pluto are still squared but their frustrating effects weaken during summer. Rat day luck strong for Rat, Ox, Dragon, and Monkey. Rat hours 11 pm – 1 am.

Good luck and have a great week,
