FIRE DOG LUNAR MONTH in Taoist Astrology

Oct 16 – Nov 13 2020 

Oct16 at 12:31 pm PDT was a new Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of marriage, partnership, and peace making. The focus this lunar month is on relationships, and maintaining peace and equilibrium.

Fire Dog Lunar Month

Fire Dog Lunar Month

This new Moon began the month of the Fire Dog when what matters most is honesty and integrity. But Fire Dog can go to extremes, just like a like a real dog who shows extreme loyalty to their family but profound aggressiveness with strangers. This behavioral extreme is a manifestations of the Taoist concept of yin and yang. Dog exhibits yin behavior when faithful and devoted, and yang behavior when a fierce guardian. 

Opportunities for relationship transformation are for all, and are strongest for Air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini and those born in Dog, Tiger, Horse, and Rabbit years.

 

FULL BLUE MOON on HALLOWEEN

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

October 31 2020 at 7:49 am PDT is a full Moon in Taurus. Earth sign Taurus rules the 2nd house of finances, security, and beauty. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, the best sign for the Moon.

This full Moon is also a blue Moon, the second of two full moons in a single calendar month. And this full Moon occurs on Halloween, the solar point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

A powerful astrological influence is that the full Moon conjuncts Uranus in Taurus. Uranus aspects can be liberating, with people seeking freedom, not being held back or following routine.

However, people can act compulsively with a lack of discipline and little sense of responsibility. So strive to stay grounded and centered during the peak of this combative Fire Dog month.

Mercury in Libra squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn. There can be miscommunication, especially during Mercury retrograde that ends on November 3. Problems of exaggeration and false information are more serious at this time. Be cautious in your speech, slow down for details, and recheck documents.

Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology forecast if feeling overwhelmed by the full Moon energy. 

Strength and empowerment are for all, and are most profound for Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and those born in Snake, Phoenix (Rooster), Ox, and Dog years.
