2017 Tail of Metal Dog Month

Now are the last few days of this Metal DOG month, a powerful time for truth telling & fighting for the underdog. Stay strong! From my book TAOIST ASTROLOGY where I call the Metal Dog the white Dog, white being the color of Metal for yang astrology signs:   Metal characteristics — righteousness, independence, strong will, intensity, uprightness, determination, and the ability to focus — are natural Dog traits. This is why the white Dog is one of the most powerful animals of the Taoist zodiac.   Metal is also Dog’s earthly branch (see page 21). White Dog...

Dog Month #MeToo

Posted by on Nov 11, 2017 in Animals, Astrology | 2 comments

November 2017 is the month of the Dog in Chinese astrology. Dog traits are honesty, integrity, and speaking up for the underdog. The truth is sniffed out, and injustice is exposed. During this Dog month, women have come forward to openly speak about sexual assault, abuse, and harassment. And people believe the women, instead of placing shame and blame for wearing the wrong clothing, saying no when she really meant yes, or other insane justifications. Tarana Burke started the hashtag #MeToo on Twitter to publicize these experiences and to demonstrate the massive amounts of mysogynist...

2017 Libra New Moon begins Dog Month

  October 19 2017 is a new Moon in Libra. Air sign Libra rules the 7th house of marriage and partnership, so time for balance in relationships.

Lift Your Spirit!

One of my tarot students had a sudden accident. She hurt her back when she tripped over her dog (a lovely lab) who always follows her around. This Fire Monkey year 2016 is the time of accidents and injuries, not lingering illness like in Snake or Rabbit years. Plus her accident occurred during the recent Mercury retrograde. She selected 3 tarot cards, one each for Body, Mind, and Spirit. Body and Mind were good cards for her, but not Spirit. (This tarot spread for health is on page 164 of Introduction To Tarot.) So her spirit was waning, she was becoming discouraged, and she...

Video: Horse Month in Monkey Year

A woman from google, a user experience researcher, stopped by my place for me to beta test google’s new Director video app for iPhone 7. I was videoed using the new app, and then the vid was to be played for the google research team to help improve user interfacing. I was probably selected because I have a google account, and my zip code is in San Francisco. For my one hour of time, I received a $100 Visa gift card. At first, I could not figure it out because a couple of the prompts were not clear. Then it suddenly clicked, so the researcher helped me make a video. For a topic, I...
