2019 is EARTH PIG YEAR

Earth Pig info

Feng Shui for Pig Year

 

METAL HORSE MONTH June 3 – July 1 2019

June 3 2019 was a new Moon in Gemini. Air sign Gemini rules the third house of communication, intellect, and ideas. The Sun, new Moon, and Mercury were all in Gemini bringing inspiration for new concepts and plans to put into action this month. Travel, especially short trips, is fortunate to expand your horizons.

This new Moon begins month of the Metal Horse, the powerful war Horse. Metal Horse is focused and can leap over obstacles. There’s not a split between mind and emotions with determined Metal Horse in charge.

The Sun and new Moon were opposite Jupiter in Sagittarius on the new Moon. This is a transit of courage, with a drive for freedom, fast change, and action — all natural Horse traits. But people can overextend, and grandiose plans can run away like a wild Horse if there is lack of accountability this month.

The Sun, new Moon, and Jupiter squared Neptune in Pisces in a mutable T-square. If there’s a gap between ideals and reality, Horse brings common sense and good instincts. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation during Horse month when you can cover much ground.

 

FULL MOON in SAGITTARIUS June 17

June 17 is a full Moon in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of exploration, travel, and learning. This full Moon marks the peak of Horse month. Both Sagittarius and Horse are ruled by the element Fire. They like fast forward movement, and stay strong to the truth of their convictions. 

The full Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Sagittarius that’s fortunate for everyone. People are in touch with their emotions, and have heightened intuition.

Mercury conjuncts Mars in Cancer. The power of Mars is softened by Water sign Cancer. Still, there’s increased mental energy to talk your way to success, or skillfully debate your ideas. It’s good to finish projects as the lunar cycle wanes, especially before Mercury retrograde July 7 – 31.

Saturn conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. The old order of Saturn changes through Pluto transformation. There’s structural change to let go of the past to embrace the new on both a personal and global scale. Horse month energy brings evolutionary change and progress.

Energy builds to Summer Solstice on June 21, the longest day in the northern hemisphere, when Mother Nature is at her fullest. Luck is most influential for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Horse, Monkey, and Dragon years.

 

2019 MERCURY RETROGRADES

for your 2019 travel plans:

March 5 – 28 in Water sign Pisces
Mercury retrograde in Pisces is when communication is nuanced and subtle. People communicate more through emotions than rational thought. If feelings are hurt, wait out the Mercury retrograde cycle to talk about it. 

July 7 – 31  in Fire sign Leo and Water sign Cancer
Mercury retrograde in Leo is when communication is direct, and you can cover much ground. But slow down if people become bossy or demanding. 
Mercury retrograde in Cancer is when emotions come to the surface. Emphasis on communication about home and family.

Oct 31 – Nov 20  Mercury retrograde in Water sign Scorpio
Mercury retrograde in Scorpio is when emotions are strong, with new intimacy in relationships. Read body language to interpret meaning.
