2017 PISCES ECLIPSE BEGINS RABBIT MONTH

February 26 2017 is new Moon solar eclipse in Pisces. Water sign Pisces is artistic, sensitive, and highly intuitive. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, so deep feelings and emotions can rise to the surface to be transformed.

The new Moon conjuncts the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune in Pisces for integration of feelings. Moods are stronger than the rational mind, disposition can change quickly, and it's easy to be overwhelmed by small matters. Therefore, this lunar month is ideal for meditation, contemplation, and to focus on self care and your domestic life. Artistic endeavors are favored, and imagination is powerful.

WATER RABBIT MONTH

This new Moon eclipse begins the month of the Water Rabbit. Water is the most yin element, and adds softness to gentle Rabbit. Water Rabbit is a deep feeling and empathetic soul who dislikes conflict and competition.

Rabbit is opposite Phoenix (Rooster) in Taoist astrology. During Water Rabbit month in this Fire Phoenix year, take care and proceed with caution. A good use of Rabbit energy is to create beauty and harmony in your home. Contact me susan@susanlevitt.com for your feng shui consultation.

MARS CONJUNCT URANUS

Mars, the red planet of war and courage, is in fiery Aries. Mars is conjunct Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change. This can bring rash behavior, anger, or sudden upsets. People want freedom, refuse limitations, and rebel against authority.

A solution is to put energy into a project or cause greater than yourself, and that serves the collective good. Saturn in Sagittarius trines both Mars and Uranus bringing stability, and a balance of old structures with new opportunities.

PLUTO SQUARES

Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto squares can bring power struggles and disagreements. Ambition is aroused, and there is a strong desire for power and domination. So cultivate the way of peaceful Pisces and gentle Rabbit during this lunar month. Luck is strongest for Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and those born in Rabbit, Sheep, and Pig years.

Happy new Moon,

Susan

We are three weeks into Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year, and I’ve received questions about lucky charms so I decided to share the info in this post.

A popular charm is a Rooster with best friends Snake and Ox. These three signs together make a yin harmony trine of animals.

Charms can be worn as jewelry, attached to a handbag, worn in your pocket, or placed in your clothing or wallet.

HARMONY TRINES

Phoenix correlates to Virgo, Snake to Taurus, and Ox to Capricorn just like an Earth trine in western astrology.

The yin harmony trine grouping of Rabbit, Sheep, and Pig correlate to Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio.

The yang harmony trine grouping of Tiger, Horse, and Dog correlate to Air signs Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra.

The yang harmony trine grouping of Monkey, Rat, and Dragon correlate to Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries.

For more information and details about relationship compatibility, see pages 36 through 43 of my book Taoist Astrology.

YOUR ALLY

Another type of charm is to wear the animal sign who is Phoenix’s one close ally outside the harmony trine. Phoenix’s ally is Dragon.

Phoenix and Dragon together are a symbol of marriage and harmony in relationship. Dragon is very compatible with Phoenix, just like Phoenix’s buddies Snake and Ox. Therefore, the Dragon ally harmony charm is the very fortunate this year.

Rat’s ally is Ox.
Ox’s ally is Rat.
Tiger’s ally is Pig.
Rabbit’s ally is Dog.
Dragon’s ally is Phoenix.
Snake’s ally is Monkey.
Horse’s ally is Sheep.
Sheep’s ally is Horse.
Monkey’s ally is Snake.
Phoenix’s ally is Dragon.
Dog’s ally is Rabbit.
Pig’s ally is Tiger.

But if you are born in the year, month, day or hour of the Dog (especially year), then Dragon is not fortunate for you because Dragon is opposite Dog. Oppositions are Rat with Horse, Ox with Sheep, Tiger with Monkey, Rabbit with Phoenix, Dragon with Dog, and Snake with Pig.

A Dragon charm is lucky for you if you love Dragons, were born in Dragon year, month, day, or hour, or if Dragon is a favored animal. And if you do not have Dog in your chart because Dragon is opposite Dog.

Personally, I won’t carry a Dragon charm this year because Dragon is so very powerful a sign. As a Sheep with Rabbit month and Pig day, this is a bit too strong for my gentle energy. And my best friend is my sister who was born in Dog year so I do not want to have a Dragon around her.

Note that the Chinese Dragon is very dynamic and magical, and is a symbol of the Emperor — nothing like the evil Dragon in western interpretations such as St. George slaying the Dragon. So use a Chinese Dragon, not a western one.

Know that you can have luck this year without wearing or carrying any charms. A tidy work station can advance your career as much as the finest jade Dragon charm on your desk. A clean bedroom can strengthen your relationship as much as carrying a Phoenix and Dragon charm in your handbag.

So to enhance your luck, keep your home and workplace clean and very tidy. Then during stressful times in this Fire Phoenix year, it will be easier to stay balanced and not become overwhelmed. If you want to add a charm, then chose carefully the most fortunate charm for you.

Wishing you good luck and rebirth in this Fire Phoenix year,

Susan

Leo Lunar Eclipse tomorrow! Peak of Tiger month & grand Fire tine: http://bit.ly/2lwhDHT.

FULL MOON ECLIPSE!

Please join me Saturday February 11, 2017 at 1 pm at East West Books in Mt. View CA for my annual Chinese New Year talk.

The full Moon on February 10, 2017 is a lunar eclipse in Fire sign Leo. An eclipse is an absence of light when the shadow is seen, so this full Moon eclipse concerns Leo issues of creativity, courage, and self expression. Five planets are in Fire signs, and it's still the month of the Tiger for the next two weeks, so pouncing on opportunities and taking action is fortunate.

The full Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries, creating a lucky grand Fire trine. People are more realistic about goals than in 2016 Fire Monkey year, and you can build on your current foundation to create something new. Mercury is not retrograde until April 9 so this springtime is ideal for creativity and action.

Romance is favored as Venus conjunct Mars in Aries brings love, passion, and a spark of romance. Plus it's a good time to smooth out relationship issues as the full Moon wanes.

Many sextiles between Air and Fire signs bring harmony: Mercury exalted in Aquarius sextiles Venus to more easily communication emotions, and inspires writing and poetry. Jupiter in Libra sextiles the full Moon and Saturn for warm feelings, maturity, and depth of awareness. The Sun in Aquarius sextiles Saturn and Uranus to organize your thoughts, expand your perception, and be open to new learning.

Jupiter is opposite Uranus and squares Pluto in Capricorn in a cardinal T-square. Ambitions are aroused in this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year, but discipline may be required to follow rules or work within limits.

Happy full Moon,

Susan

2017 Fire Phoenix brings Warrior energy from the element Fire.

And not to worry! Pondering is for Snake, and Rabbit can break the worry habit this year because Phoenix is Rabbit's opposite to learn.

Like Fire Monkey year 2016, this Fire Bird year is time for action, but now action with contemplation.

LOVE this Fire Phoenix artwork. Happy lunar new year!

FIRE PHOENIX (ROOSTER) YEAR 2017

Happy Chinese New Year! January 27 2017 is a new Moon in Aquarius at 4:07 pm PST that begins the year of the Phoenix (Rooster). Some translations refer to 2017 as Rooster year or Chicken year, but I use the translation Phoenix because it brings opportunities for rebirth and transformation.

Phoenix year is fortunate for all Phoenixes, and for Phoenix’s most compatible signs Ox, Snake, and Dragon. Phoenix energy can, at times, be challenging for Rabbit. Phoenix correlates to the Western sign Virgo.

Please join me for my Year of the Fire Phoenix talk! Saturday February 11 2017 from 1 – 2:30 pm at East West Books, 324 Castro Street in Mountain View CA. To purchase tickets, call East West Books at 650-988-9800 or 800.909.6161.

THE WAY OF THE PHOENIX
Phoenix is a brilliant, inspirational, and fearless visionary. The element Fire is perfect for Phoenix because Fire brings strength, passion, bravery, and leadership. So now is the year to break free, claim your destiny, and overcome obstacles. You can heal past actions, even past lives, with your new awareness.

SUCCESS IN PHOENIX YEAR
Three tips for success are:
First, pay attention to your health. This is the year to exercise, get in shape, and eat well. If you are exhausted after Fire Monkey 2016, then 2017 is especially your year to focus on health, healing, and restoration.

Bad back for years, not seen a dentist, want to change your weight, or any type of delay in dealing with your health? This is the year to finally address health issues, and not let health challenges drag on. Same with your home. Time to clean out the old and unused, and live more efficiently in this Fire bird year.

Second is to organize your finances. Deal with any debt, plan, budget, and be aware of your spending. Those born in Phoenix year are naturally very good at accounting, can find a bargain, and appreciate thrift as do Phoenix’s best friends Ox and Snake.

Third is to work hard with focus. 2017 is the year to apply yourself in your career. Be persistent, yet flexible. This is not the time to goof off or take your job for granted. Phoenix year is work before play, so get organized and contribute on the job. For some, it may feel like beak to the grindstone with superiors criticizing or micromanaging. But stay strong and do the work! Excuses will not be tolerated in a no-nonsense Phoenix year.

PHOENIX CHARACTER
Those born in Phoenix years (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017) are sharp people who are blessed with keen judgement and quick wit. A clear thinker who benefits from higher knowledge, Phoenix can be an outstanding scholar. Phoenix is naturally curious and enjoys intellectual exchange.

Phoenix is popular, outspoken, and well liked so often has a flock of admirers. Phoenix is very resourceful and can be thrown into any situation and on a moment’s notice and emerge a winner. Others seek Phoenix’s advice because Phoenix perceptions are unique, and Phoenix is a creative problem solver.

In matters of romance, Phoenix is serious and loyal. Phoenix is naturally honest, with a frank style of communication that does not sugar coat the truth. But Phoenix might be a teller of tall tales or embellish a story to make a point.

Loving and bonded in relationships but independent at work, it’s usually best that a Phoenix run their own business. If mystically inclined, Phoenix can develop prophetic abilities to become like the rare Phoenix, the mythical bird that symbolizes transformation, beauty, and grace. Phoenix can magically arise from the ashes to create a new life. So do not allow critical thinking or procrastination stop you.

FIRE PHOENIX
Of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood, this is the year of the Fire Phoenix. Red means go!
Fire brings passion, creativity, and joy. Fire types are strong, dynamic, and can overcome illness and obstacles. Just be aware that Fire can be very enthusiastic (like Wood) so do not take on more responsibilities than you can handle, especially in autumn.

LUCKY HOURS
In Phoenix year, activities are more successful when undertaken during hours that are favorable for Phoenix: Phoenix, Ox, Snake, and Dragon hours.

Phoenix hours are 5 – 7 pm
Ox hours are 1 – 3 am
Snake hours are 9 – 11 am
Dragon hours are 7 – 9 am

CHINESE NEW YEAR DATE
Chinese New Year is a spring festival that begins on the second new Moon after Winter Solstice. But in the Solar Terms Chinese agricultural calendar, the Chinese New Year begins on February 4 or 5. This Li Chun date, based on Solar Terms (15 degrees along the ecliptic) is close to February 2nd, a date that marks the point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

YOUR FORTUNE IN FIRE PHOENIX YEAR

RAT – A festive and fun year, and a continuation of good fortune from the previous Fire Monkey year. Both Rat and Phoenix are smart, sharp, and quick-witted. Under the protective wings of the Phoenix, you can accomplish much this year, and receive warm support from others. But Phoenix’s influence requires hard work. It’s work before play, so time to be diligent. Plan carefully, and bit by bit attain your goals with a successful harvest in autumn. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Rat is most compatible with another Rat, Dragon, or Monkey. Ox is also compatible. Horse is least compatible.

OX – Finally, good times for you because Phoenix is most compatible with Ox (and Snake). You and Phoenix can be no-nonsense realists who will appreciate the Phoenix year influence of accountability and responsibility. Family life is harmonious, and you are recognized for your contributions. Work is rewarding, especially in autumn. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Ox is most compatible with another Ox, Phoenix, or Snake. Rat is also compatible. Sheep is least compatible.

TIGER – Phoenix and Tiger are very different so anticipate some misunderstandings. But friends, family, and colleagues offer their support so Tiger is still well loved! If you experience minor disappointments or some unhappiness, take your time and don’t be hard on yourself. This Fire Phoenix year is an excellent time to get organized for your new fortunate life cycle in 2018 Earth Dog year. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Tiger is most compatible with another Tiger, Horse, or Dog. Pig is also compatible. Monkey is least compatible.

RABBIT – Stay your good, kind, and artistic Rabbit self! Phoenix is your opposite so prepare for criticism or conflict of interest. The martial tones of the Phoenix could irritate your fine aesthetics. Money strains can bring debt so watch your spending. If hard work causes frustration, do the best you can instead of confronting authority figures. Next year Earth Dog 2018 is a lucky year for you when the truth is championed and you find success. Good feng shui of your home and office is a must for sensitive Rabbit to take care during this Phoenix year. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Rabbit is most compatible with another Rabbit, Sheep, or Pig. Dog is also compatible. Phoenix is least compatible.

DRAGON – Dragon and Phoenix are a symbol of harmonious marriage so relationships are highlighted this year. Anticipate good fortune and prosperity, happiness, positive news, promotion, and business opportunities. New friends and contacts bring important connections. Dragon is king this year, and you can achieve your goals. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Dragon is most compatible with another Dragon, a Rat, or Monkey. Phoenix (Rooster) is also compatible. Dog is least compatible.

SNAKE – Phoenix is one of the best companions for Snake because you and Phoenix share a harmony trine with Ox. Snake is celebrated and enjoys popularity. Recognition, promotion, and bonuses are foreseen. The work you do behind the scenes now comes to light, and can be rewarded. Stay steady at work, and be thrifty. Follow your instincts to know when it’s best to lay low. Luck is with you all year, especially in late summer. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Snake is most compatible with another Snake, Ox, or Phoenix (Rooster). Monkey is also compatible. Pig is least compatible.

HORSE – A harmonious year that brings good fortune and good news. Phoenix and Horse are both sexy signs who enjoy good times, so you and Phoenix are on the same page. Home life is secure, and problems are not overwhelming. Plus business is good. But Horse might be required to work harder, and slow down development. Just don’t let affairs get out of hand, especially in autumn. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Horse is most compatible with another Horse, Dog, or Tiger. Sheep is also compatible. The Rat is least compatible.

SHEEP – Let the rest of the world compete for success this year. Instead, tend to your health, back down from arguments, and treat this year as if you’re at a spaaa. Could be some trying times for us Sheep because Phoenix’s influence demands hard work, and responsible accounting for how time and money are spent. And we do not respond well to criticism. It’s best to comply, curb spending (Sheep eat paper), and maintain firm boundaries. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Sheep is most compatible with another Sheep, Pig, or Rabbit. Horse is also compatible. Ox is least compatible.

MONKEY – After the exciting Fire Monkey year 2016, build on your Monkey year success by following up and completing projects. But under Phoenix’s influence, Monkey must work steadily and pay attention to details, and that’s not of interest to any Monkey. Overextending yourself could lead to health problems. So maintain a conservative outlook, and be in observation mode. You’ll learn a lot about human nature this year. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Monkey is most compatible with another Monkey, Rat, or Dragon. Snake is also compatible. Tiger is least compatible.

PHOENIX (Rooster) – Rooster, Chicken, Cock, Hen? I call you Phoenix, offering a lifetime of opportunities to be reborn and transformed. You benefit from the influence of your own year, and start a new life cycle. You’ll have to work hard, but affairs are under control, order reigns, and you rise in glory. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Phoenix is most compatible with another Phoenix (if they don’t peck each other), Ox, or Snake. Dragon is also compatible. Rabbit is least compatible.

DOG – Phoenix year emphasis on material success and achievement run counter to Dog’s values. So stay true to your convictions. This is a good year for education, and you can find advancement through new learning or specialized training. You’ll start a fortunate 12-year cycle in Earth Dog year 2018 so allow some friendships or circumstances to end this year. What is not to be part of your new Dog year cycle can naturally fall by the wayside, especially in autumn. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Dog is most compatible with another Dog, Tiger, or Horse. Rabbit is also compatible. Dragon is least compatible.

PIG – Don’t allow people to take advantage of your Pig heart of gold, and mistake your kindness for weakness. Be sympathetic but not overly involved in the affairs of others, and avoid taking sides in any battles around you. Business rewards and financial prosperity result from hard work if you decide to apply yourself. Plan a big vacation this year. Winter is your luckiest season. Looking for love in Phoenix year? Pig is most compatible with another Pig, Sheep, or Rabbit. Tiger is also compatible. Snake is least compatible.

2017 FULL MOON in CANCER

January 12 2017 is a full Moon in Cancer. Water sign Cancer is the mother figure and nurturer of the zodiac. So use the coming two weeks as the Moon wanes to take care of yourself, especially by eating healthy food. Plus Cancer rules the fourth house of family, home, and roots making the next two weeks ideal to clean your home and prepare for Chinese New Year that starts on the new Moon on January 27.

People could feel frustrated by the configuration of a grand cardinal cross of the full Moon in cardinal Water sign Cancer opposite Sun and Pluto in cardinal Earth sign Capricorn, and squaring Jupiter in cardinal Air sign Libra, and squaring Uranus in cardinal Fire sign Aries. Cardinal signs are active and goal oriented. Under the influence of this grand cross, there could be delays, or a sense of being in the doldrums with nothing new, and it’s more of a challenge to get things done. Mars in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius making it necessary to be thorough and cautious.

Fortunately, Venus, Mars, and Neptune are conjunct in Pisces for increased empathy and sensitivity. Venus conjunct Mars is especially good for enjoying social times, appreciation of art and beauty, increase of sex drive and passion, and involvement in creative work.

MY CHINESE NEW YEAR TALK
Please join me on Saturday February 11 2017 for my annual Chinese New Year talk about The Year of the Fire Phoenix (Rooster) from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm at East West Books, 324 Castro Street in Mountain View CA.

Happy full Moon,

Susan
