July 23 New Moon. Leap For Joy!

“In Kenya you’ve got the great birds and monkeys leaping through trees overhead. It’s a chance to remember what the world is really like.”
– Joanna Lumley

July 23 New Moon shines with brilliant opportunities with the potential for big change. Our best shot is to glean from Monkey’s intelligence, eloquence, adaptability and flexibility so these boons fall easily into our lap. Monkey is Metal (Jin) which signifies brilliance and perseverance.  It serves up the qualities of finesse and the focus to complete projects. According to Chinese zodiac analysis, Monkey folks always have smart, agile and active characteristics. With the approach of the August eclipse, agility and adaptability are indeed super powers to have in your back pocket. Implementing them will help you maneuver around setbacks and take full advantage of the good luck offered.

In the lunar calendar there is a big leap year every three years and a small leap every five years. All the zodiac animals are encouraged to take advantage of this time to: relocate, get married, start a new career or business, purchase real estate, break ground and commence construction.

Let’s leap for joy! This is indeed a special month. Have a great one, Zodiac friends!

June 24 New Moon. Make Art Not Anxiety.

“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

June 24 New Moon the polite, kindhearted, clever Ram enters the Zodiac stage. Sensitive, affectionate, creative with a love for beauty, the Ram is predisposed to taking good care of loved ones , creating domestic bliss and they love to make art. Epicureans of good taste, it is quite natural for a Ram to decorate their sanctuary with style and complete it with luscious comfort.

The thunderous yang energy of the Horse has rather left all of us panting and wanting to catch our breath. Ram’s calm influence can help you unwind this month in the arms of your home. Use the yin energy to irrigate your aesthetic nature and make art not anxiety. Steep yourself in your “creative vision” super power. Let it wash over all your affairs and don’t resist when your right brain percolates out-of-the box ideas. These may very well lead you to soul satisfying solutions for your career, relationships and reflective time.

Ram is connected to the season of Earth. It is the time of transition, transformation and harvesting your ideas. Will you make art this month or will you generate anxiety? Rat, you are not in accordance with the Ram. You may expect hindrances, scoundrels, illness and loss of wealth. Perform the BTB “Golden Cicada Sheds Its Shell” the first lunar day of the month to dispel bad luck and disaster. Ox: you and the Ram are in direct conflict this month. Misfortune and missed opportunities with some obstacles may trip you up. Take precaution in all your activities. Guard your wealth. Pay close attention to your health. If you are in a romantic relationship now is not the time to make any decisions. You too can benefit from performing the BTB “Golden Cicada Sheds Its Shell” the first lunar day of the month to dispel bad luck and disaster. Tiger: your fame will be on the rise and your career will climb. If you have been doing good deeds, your endeavors will show up in your prosperity and fortune will smile upon you. Take advantage of opportunities and work diligently for your future. Beware of unexpected trouble and take precaution against illness. Use your keen intuitive sense when dealing in business, there is cause to be concerned. Rabbit: this is a Three Harmony month and your luck is going well. The stars are highlighting where you work. Accept praise with graciousness. You may receive a promotion and a raise. Be assertive now in making progress and seek other opportunities. Dragon: you can expect both good luck and misfortune. Watch out for scoundrels maligning your good name. There could be arguments and disputes among relatives, friends and colleagues. In all endeavors step back to have a clearer idea of the big picture. Snake: you will enjoy success in your business but it is advised to keep a low profile. Do not give scoundrels the opportunity to do you ill favor. Horse: auspicious stars shine on you this month. There is a chance of marriage and the entire household will be blessed. You will have lots of good fortune and your investments will pay off. If you are in a government position or managerial role, good news will arrive from afar. Women will progress in their career and their reputation will rise. Stay away from spreading gossip. Ram: there are both gains and losses this month. Financially you may be taken advantage of. Emotionally you may often be distressed. Practice the BTB “Inhale Exhale Breathing Exercise”. Keep to your tasks and you will be paid off in the end. Monkey: this month everything is running smooth. There will be harmony in the family. At work, helpful people will be helping you. Know when to call it quits. Rooster: a month to observe the rules and mind the law. Don’t do anything illegal and you will have a good conscience. Refrain from getting into arguments or acting irrationally. Be careful with your money, you could lose it. Dog: it is a mutually offensive month. You may feel like it is one step forward and one step backward. But it can be dealt with and resolved. Pay attention to family members’ health and harmony in the home. Pig: it’s a month to feel uplifted as everything is working out for you with helpful people coming to your assistance. Just like the clear sky after the rain expect to receive profits from previous investments. Refrain from making investments in stock. If you request a cure from this forecast, I will ask you to honor the red envelope tradition. Have a great month, Zodiac friends!

May 26 New Moon. Horse Sense.

“When your heart speaks, take good notes.”
– Judith Campbell

May 26 new moon the friendly, passionate Horse came to the forefront of the Chinese zodiac. With a zeal for life, those born under the Year of the Horse are warm-hearted, fervent and generous. Horse is a loyal companion and consistently there for their friends. Patient when it comes to hearing out what other people have to say, they excel at resolving conflicts, their own and most everyone else’s. Their independent nature and unwavering vitality are key characteristics that help them survive obstacles. Interestingly these traits are the bulwarks that support their rise to the top of their career.

In the Chinese zodiac Horse rules the time between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. In Chinese medicine this time is ruled by the Heart. 2017 has posed challenges for humankind. Our collective heart is speaking. It is saying spread more love and compassion. Call on your super power, compassion. Give away your patience, your ear, your time and  your heart. In spreading good deeds, acts of compassion form a shield against arguments and tension. Negative energy cannot incubate in an atmosphere of kindness.

It is Chinese summer. The fruit is ready. What delectable harvest might you enjoy this month? Rat: you are in direct conflict with the sign of the month. Set the dial high on your radar. You may encounter unexpected lawsuits and accidents. Best advice: maintain a low profile and be conservative. Ox: you and the Horse are in the most confrontational relationship this month. Pay attention to your health. Be aware that disasters could come out of nowhere. Err on the side of caution and be conservative rather than taking big steps. Tiger: you are in the Three Harmony this month. Helpful people will be assisting you. Revel in the glow of prosperity in your wealth and career. Ride the wind, let things flow and good fortune will find you. Rabbit: luck is not good this month. You may find that matters will be difficult to navigate. Wait for better timing. Chanting the Heart Sutra mantra morning and night will help you maintain peace and a serene frame of mind. Dragon: helpful people will assist  you in attaining your goals. Not only career,  you can expect to gain profits and expand your wealth. Be mindful of partnering with zodiac signs who are not compatible with your own. Conflict will likely show up later. Snake: your luck is laser like this month. Be mindful of business relationships with new friends, you could be taken advantage of and lose money. Horse: best to see things with a philosophical perspective. Safeguard your home and household. Be cautious, be conservative, do not be careless. Think before speaking and avoid vanity and greed. Ram: the month is a six harmony month. You will have the best luck of the year. Stay the course in all your endeavors. Watch for illness and accidents. Monkey: good time for your affairs to fall into a routine. Be cautious and modest and you will avoid scoundrels. Rooster: a month to turn your gaze onto peace and tranquility. Take the high ground and do not gossip or put your nose into other folks’ affairs. Advice: chant The White Robe Kuan Yin mantra. Dog: your persistences pays off, helpful people will back you, luck is at its best. Don’t let trivial things nor petty people bother you. Take more time to relax. Pig: concentrate on your career. Changing jobs is not recommended at this time. If you become sick, seek medical attention immediately. Avoid attending to the bereaved or going to funerals. If you request a cure from this forecast, I will ask you to honor the red envelope tradition. Have a great month, Zodiac friends!

April 26 New Moon. Be The Change.

“…do not look outside yourself for the leader.”
– an unnamed Hopi elder, Hopi Nation, Oraibi, Arizona

April 26 new moon, the Snake with its penchant for change portends that you lessen your suffering when you let go of your skin. With unprecedented government strategies curbing the freedom of many, the hour is NOW to be the change you wish to see in the world. Pull out your “shape shifter” super power, it catalyzes simple truths to unfold in perfect timing. Know your garden. Create your community. Let your attitude shape shift the moment into love. The unnamed Hopi Elder says it best and with great compassion.

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, NOW you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly. 

Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. 

The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do NOW must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. 

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
– an unnamed Hopi elder

February 26 New Moon, Amazing Grace

“A wise man adapts himself to circumstances, as water, shapes itself to the vessel that contains it.”
– Chinese proverb

Beauty is the clay that the Rabbit uses to shape their vessel. Their refined social nature may take them to an afternoon at an art museum, converse with the literati at a familiar haunt or use their prodigious healing skill to attend to the needy. Wherever they are, whatever they do, grace surrounds them. One of their outstanding qualities is their keen emotional nature. It enables them to detect the climate of others which gives them an adeptness in their dealings. Rabbit has a love of decorating their home, they may peruse vintage stores looking for that one special treasure to add to the antiquity and esoterica that embellish their surroundings.

Because the sweet bunny is in the hot seat with the Year God, it brings awareness to reflection and something new this year, adaptation to whatever challenges appear. In fact, self-reflection is a super power for Rabbit. It creates space to adapt to any given situation. Think of it too as your super power when making important life-work decisions, achieving your goals or dealing with disappointment. Imagine your home inviting graceful change and then let your troubles melt away.

March the ground is thawing, the ice cracking and the noble sky is unveiling Spring messages. Resist the urge to stay in the rabbit hole. Give yourself the edge. The solar system has news you can use. Rat: a Mutually Offensive month misfortune overcomes auspiciousness. Don’t get into matches with others, refrain from disputes and stay away from gossip or you will find scoundrels in your life. Maintain calm and find your peace spot within. A month to clean up your attitudes – feeling sorry for yourself and being picky. Ox: be steady and take precaution in all your endeavors. Take to routine like a duck to water. Refrain from indulging in acting cranky and impatient. Take one step at a time and all will be sorted in the end. Money will come as you wish and health will be good. Tiger: your luck is fair this month but be aware that there will be as much joy and there is sorrow. Be conservative and keep a low profile. Do not compete with others, avoid talking behind people’s back and arguments. Rabbit: your luck will fluctuate this month. You may find that there is opposition to your will with scoundrels getting in your way. You may experience unexpected disasters and do not take money from ill-gotten gains. Dragon: this is a confrontational month. Events do not turn out as you plan and there is disharmony. Avoid entanglements with scoundrels. Eat clean foods, illness finds it way through the mouth. Snake: business and work will be favorable, however remain industrious and get along with your co-workers. Be patient with your family and friends. Take on more social activities and relax. Only then will you get rid of unhappiness. Horse: there is the yin and the yang this month. A smooth path with hurdles to cross. Matters appear to be going well and then they change direction and conflict with arguments arise. Ram: your financial luck will come easily but still remain conservative. Stability is the best strategy. Do not be greedy where others are concerned. Monkey: the luck of the month will be on even keel but there will be obstacles to surmount too. Be cautious when making investments. If there are disputes among family members look to yourself before casting blame. Find methods that calm your spirit and keep a low profile. Rooster: the month is mutually offensive and confrontational. You will find yourself blocked, there is interpersonal disharmony and marital disputes. If you are confronted be patient and tolerant with others. Remember to refrain from letting your temper explode; keep the goal of harmony in your sights. Dog: your money luck is good for investing in stocks. “However be cautious in selecting your targets for investing.” Don’t be an opportunist. Pig: with Spring is the radiance of the flowers and so is your luck. During this peace filled month it will be a good time to advance. Be objective with your judgement otherwise you may draw the wrong conclusions.

If you request a cure from this forecast, I will ask you to honor the red envelope tradition. Have a great month, Zodiac friends!

New Year’s, Start With A Tiger In Your Tank!

photo credit: Photo4me

“It is your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”
Tony Robbins

Strong willed and confident, the Tiger isn’t one to stop and smell the roses, quite the opposite, energetic and determined, they are skilled in persistence that helps them stand out as leaders. A frank personality and willing to speak their truth, they gain others’ trust readily, both personally and in the public arena. 

The Year of the Fire Rooster provides fertile ground for Tiger to expand their career territory. With the blessing of many stars luck will unfold and be smooth. There will be joyous celebrations in the household. However Tiger needs to be aware of one unlucky star that may take them into the court room with lawsuits and legal entanglements. Best to start the year right with an abundance of good deeds to offset any unpropitious energy the zodiac may cast.

Every year at the Chinese Lunar New Year, the Tiger leaps with one powerful bound onto the Zodiac horizon. Tiger can offer its determination and indomitable strength to help you persevere as you find your momentum. But if you can’t find your traction, call on this big cat’s super power of persistence to see you through a project, devise an agenda, develop a strategy or devote passion to your dream. You cannot miss when you have a tiger in your tank.

The sky is vast with an abundance of stars to help you navigate the many possibilities available, find out what the galaxy has in store for you in this month of the Tiger. Rat: building your merits will pay off in good results. Considering performing a good deed a day. Do not be a guarantor nor walk alone at night. Be industrious and you can build a promising career and future. Ox: your fortune is highlighted and you will have strong wealth luck. Fame and profit will be on the forefront. You may feel anxious but take a calm attitude. Tackle your problems only as they arrive. Tiger: there is ease with your career with many favorable opportunities coming your way. Be cautious of accidents. If you travel aboard, perform “Walking On The Red Carpet” cure before as you leave your home. Rabbit: Chinese Lunar New Year is in the same month so participate in all the festivities. Seize the opportunity to host a big celebration in your home. If you travel, search for favorable opportunities. Dragon: seize good career opportunities. Travel with family (like a trip to Mexico) and relax. Don’t quibble. There is a saying, “Prosperity derives from harmonious families.” Snake: luck of the month is Mutually Offensive. Be cautious and be patient. You might suffer minor financial loss so pay close attention to expenditures. Beware of robbery. When having health issues do not hesitate to seek medical advice. Horse: the start of the year all things are refreshed. Earnestly plan for your career and life matters. Limit your social activities and beware of your health. Turn your attention to creating happiness and harmony within your home. Spend more time communicating with your niece. Ram: as the new year begins, write out your annual plan and execute it by adhering to well a established agenda. Look at what is realistic and idealistic and choose the former. In the area of romance take it slow to keep the good connection flowing. Monkey: the luck of the month is not smooth but you can turn this around by performing the BTB Feng Shui  “The Golden Cicada Sheds Its Shell” secret cure on Chinese New Year’s eve. Exercise caution in everything you do and think thrice (“Swallow Your Saliva” nine times) before you take action. Rooster: this month do not venture into affairs. Maintain the status quo. Cut back on traveling and social activities. Exercise what is good for your physical and mental well-being. Focus on relaxation to eliminate worries. Do not brood over what you have no control of. Dog: everything is new and fresh. Keep the home fires and social interpersonal relationships on a even keel by performing the BTB Chinese New Year ceremonies, “The Golden Cicada Sheds Its Shell”; “Welcoming The Wealth God” and ”Changing The Ch’i Of The House…” to insure good luck for the year. Pig: your luck is favorable but your ideas may run out of steam towards the end of the lunar month. “Clearly understand your limitations and do what you can.” Do not run your energy down with doing too much which brings on anxiety and stress.

If you request a cure from this forecast, I will ask you to honor the red envelope tradition. Have a great month, Zodiac friends!

New Year. New Story.

“Tap the power inside yourself so that it may show up on the outside in what you say, what you do and how you do it.”
Lillian Too

Rise Up In The Year of the Fire Rooster.

The Chinese New Year is the most propitious event of the year that welcomes a fresh start. During the first weeks, the year is still unformed, impressionable and receptive to our intentions, expectations and wide-eyed guidance from our dreams. But how do we maintain our enthusiasm throughout the year? If you are like me and feel you see quicker results when your goals are nurtured with inspiration and diligence, I have a Chinese secret for you. Some years ago Professor Lin Yun, Master of BTB Feng Shui, taught his students there are three elements needed to master success. Deceptively simple yet very powerful these three aspects are: time, location and human factors. Throughout the year I write about the influence of location – Feng Shui on human factors. But once a year I present on “time”  – Chinese Astrology. It’s my belief by sharing the Chinese Zodiac animals’ forecast it will spark a yin-yang balance and help you make accurate decisions on when to make your best move, when to rest and when to let your light shine.

Rat Thank your lucky stars that you have them because this new year you are in a mutually offensive relationship with the Rooster. These lucky stars will avert the bad luck present and steer you towards good fortune. Though your money luck will be fair, your acquisition of it can only be obtain through conventional means. It is not a year to speculate. You may experience a series of small illnesses but they do not cause you harm. The male Rat will not have as good of luck as the female Rat. Family harmony will be good. You will have Helpful People come to your assistance and work will be smooth but be mindful that scoundrels may be working behind your back to cause trouble. Be aware of “Peach Blossom Menace” (relationships with the opposite sex may lead to negative and harmful influences) and “Peach Blossom Disaster”  (circumstances could lead to injury, even bloodshed). Good lunar months are: March 28-April 25; leap month, July 23- August 21; August 22-September 19; November 18-December 17 and January 17-February 15.

Ox you will enjoy the auspicious luck of the Golden Triangle with the Rooster. There is a good chance for a promotion and advancement leading to a higher position and greater power this new year. Academic pursuits are favored and careers will see breakthroughs. Your wealth luck is good; but expect to receive it through conventional means. It is a year that you will be able to hold on to your fortune. There may be some health issues. Learn methods to relax your physical body and your mind. Scoundrels may be afoot, check your back and do not socialize with individuals of questionable character. Remember a harmonious family leads to success of everything. Good lunar months are: January 28-February 25; February 26-March 27; April 26-May 25; leap month, July 23- August 21; September 20-October 19; November 18-December 17 and December 18-January 16.

Tiger with lucky stars present in the Year of the Fire Rooster your career will flourish and you may experience breakthroughs. There will be happy celebrations in your home and the family will enjoy auspicious and smooth luck with good fortune. However there is one unpropitious star. Guard against lawsuits, entanglements and loss of wealth. Don’t gamble nor speculate and be cautious when making investments. There is the possibility of traffic accidents, perform “Driving Safely Cure”. You will find yourself traveling, finding assistance from Helpful People and there will be profits coming from a distant location. Good lunar months are: January 28-February 25; May 26-June 23; June 24-July 23; July 23- August 21; October 20-November 17; November 18-December 17 and January 17-February 15.

Rabbit is in direct conflict with the Year God. Your luck is undesirable, beware you may be living beyond your means. There will be obstacles to making money so much that you may have to sell your assets. There will be one circumstance after another–work turmoil, disputes, projects falling short of completion and scoundrels causing trouble behind your back– that you may throw up your hands. However your love life will be stable and your health will be good. It is a year, dear Hare to remain conservative, passive, modest and cautious. Be wise and play safe. You can perform “The Golden Cicada Sheds It’s Shell” beginning Chinese Lunar New Year’s eve for three consecutive nights but if you missed this opportunity you can do it at the new moon for the next 11 months. Good lunar months are: January 28-February 25; April 26-May 25; June 24-July 23; July 23- August 21; October 20-November 17 and November 18-December 17.

Dragon You are in an auspicious position. Being Rooster’s “secret friend” gives you special status and the enjoyment of good luck this new year. And there are lucky stars in the ascendent. You will enjoy prosperity in all your professional endeavors and helpful people are readily available to assist you. It is a good time to map out your professional ambition and pursue it, start a new career, get married or relocate. However the flip side is some ill possibilities. Watch your health as you might overdo and be discerning with social functions, you may end up exhausting yourself. Your financial luck will come from conventional methods. Be cautious when investing and whom you befriend. Good lunar months are: January 28-February 25; April 26-May 25; May 26-June-23, July 23-August 21; August 22-September 19; September 20-October 19; November 18-December 17 and January 17-February 15.

Snake You have the luck of the Three Harmony in the Year of the Rooster. Not only will your enterprises go as you wish but opportunities will be plentiful and helpful people will be available while fame and profited are expected. The flip side there will be discord in interpersonal relationships and and mental/physical fatigue from the pressures above. Your financial luck is pretty good. Remember to live within your means. Beware of “Peach Blossom Luck”. Be mindful of who you choose to date. Good lunar months are: February 26- March 27;  May 26-June-23; July 23-August 21; August 22-September 19; September 20-October 19; and January 17-February 15.

Horse in a Rooster year will find their fortune fluctuating. You will experience highs and lows and life will feel unpredictable. It will be difficult to finish projects that are started. Be sincere in your efforts and have patience if circumstances become delayed. Luck for wealth sources will abound and it might be that you receive unexpected fortune. In regards to relationships and your emotions it could be a bumpy ride. Rabbit men be aware of women’s working behind your back and Peach Blossom Menace. There may be entanglement and false rumors. Be discerning about associating with those who have ill intent. Older Horses seek immediate medical attention when you become sick. Good lunar months are: January 28-February 25; April 26-May 25; June 24-July 22; July 23-August 21; August 22-September 19; September 20-October 19 and November 18-December 17.

Ram unfortunately you will experience more misfortune than good luck. The road ahead is full of encumbrances and uncertainties. There could be injuries, there could be death with a family member(s).

November 29 New Moon I Seize The Cheese

“Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.”
Albert Camus

November 29 new moon the legendary Rat expertly sniffs his way onto the Zodiac stage. In the number one position of the Chinese Zodiac this rodent is a nose ahead when it comes to sizing up a situation and acting on it. Very social with a charming personality, Rat is curious, imaginative, has a great wit with an amazing memory which is perhaps why he/she is the most auspicious Chinese symbol for success and wealth. Rat can see the detail within detail and their heightened awareness makes them masters at seizing opportunity. This month borrow Rat’s super powerful x-ray vision and refine your sensibilities. With your polished sixth sense you’ll have the nose of a rat to seize the cheese. Carpe diem!

Rat: your health may take a turn, seek immediate medical advice. Take precaution against theft and burglary, check your entrances and doors. Money could be lost.

Your luck this new moon and your attitude will not be the best. You will encounter difficulties both inside and outside the household. It is advised to chant the White-Robe, Kuan-Yin mantra both morning and evening to help you feel calm and stable. Ram: “it is a confrontational month and your luck will be the worst of the year” so be passive, remain low key and practice patience.

Monkey: “the sun has come out after days of rain.” Starting this new moon all your dealings and operations will be  joyous and satisfactory. Money luck will be good! Seize the day when it comes to your career or a relationship. Rooster: it is a “Mutually Offensive month” and your luck will not be the best.

Whatever you  choose to do it will be supported. If you keep the faith and act with sincerity your career will climb. However monitor your expenses with your income, you would not want to find yourself in an embarrassing situation.

October 30 New Moon I When Pigs Fly…

When pigs fly (indeed they might this new moon)…
People will treat you the way you treat them.
You will never be judged by appearances.
You will never be take for granted.
Your heart will never be broken again.
People will know what you have been through.

When you fly…
None of those things will matter.
Spread your own wings and soar!
Bryant McGill

October 30 new moon the unassuming Pig quietly takes the Zodiac stage. Pig is the last of the Chinese Zodiac animals but the first animal to consistently practice self love. Honest, calm, discerning, fair, tolerant and kind, they are loyal to their friends. They have a strong interior grasp of life and the people around them so they can be in the company of family and peers yet spend time alone. Their self love, their self worth, enables them to remain patient and persevere when times become difficult.

With the radiant summer sun a memory and the fruitful autumn harvest behind us, winter can bring a cold chill to our hearts. During this time call upon Pig’s reliable sense of self love to warm and sustain you during the dim, frosty months. This super power is a potent reserve that will lift your emotions from fear and bring you the resolve to stand firm when you feel judged, endure a broken heart and carry on if you have been treated unfairly.
