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!

Or is it our four footed friends’ “bow wow practice” that they have mastered so effortlessly? Bowing to the divine in their owners and feeling the wow of devotion. This simple act of expressing unconditional love creates strong bonds and gratifying relationships that can help you through difficult times. And maybe too that caring about what happens to another is all you need to feel good throughout the day.

November 12 New Moon. Pigmalion.

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
–George Bernard Shaw

Generous, honorable, an Epicurian when it comes to chocolate, the happy Pigs walks in with a wink and smile at November 12 new moon. Pigs are lucky animals for the Chinese. Pig is a three harmony with the Ram. In 2015 almost everything is achievable.  There will be much luck and the Pig’s career advances. Pig has a nose for style–clothing (tutus), fine foods (truffles), and furnishings (satin and silks). “Pig often over eats but they do it with good taste.” Upon meeting a Pig you might think they are too good to be true–they are careful and caring. If you are a Pig, people will feel they can trust you and you won’t let them down. You love helping others; it is a true pleasure for you. You care a great deal about your family and friends and work hard to make life agreeable for everyone. But it is he who is an unlucky fellow who has crossed you in love and business. You are highly intelligent and a perennial scholar, loving to learn and share your knowledge.

Need help discerning what direction to take? Here are monthly soundbites for your Chinese zodiac animal in the Month of the Pig. Rat: although your career is going smooth watch how much you spend your money. If you do a good deed daily you will avoid a thousand evils. Ox: stay under the radar. The less exposed you are, the fewer mistakes you make. Abundance comes when you show caution. Tiger: a Six Harmony month! Blessings and fortune rise to the sky. Harmony with family and auspicious events will show up easily. But refrain from spreading rumors or getting into a ruckus. Rabbit: you will be recognized for your work. If you visit a hospital be careful about minor illnesses. Carry nine orange peels for good luck. Dragon: go with the flow and let events develop as they will.  Try not to complain and watch household expenses. Snake: matters will come to a boil. Avoid people who mean you harm and talk behind your back. Be careful of traffic accidents. Horse: good month for salary increase and promotion. You will achieve what you wish and all will be well within the family. Ram: a “Three Harmony” month. All sadness will be dispelled. Be assertive in planning your future. Opportunities happen for those who are prepared. Monkey: it is a most confrontational month and you will be involved with lots of disputes. Do one good deed a day to dispel the bad luck. Rooster: you will enjoy good luck. Your plans will go through as you wish. Work, studies and career have the green light. It’s a Yes! month. Dog: out of misfortune comes bliss. You get a windfall. Act prudently and keep your nose to your own business. Pig: you experience both good and bad luck. Inadvertently you spoil an opportunity. Obstacles will thwart  your efforts. Stay focused on the big picture and let go of minor frustrations.
