Oppositions to our best laid plans… the stars are flying in opposing territories and the signs are at odds with each other. Sun in Dog sign and a very powerful full (yang) Moon in the Dragon sign, will stir the pot. We may see more than a few old bones pop-up to the surface.
Our outer rim planets (large celestial bodies, or planets outside our elliptic plane) are taking up new positions and knocking down the old. This is when the music stops so find a seat and occupy it. Saturn is moving stations (from Dog to Pig) and that will pull the rug out from under many things.
For fun and in keeping with the festive spirit of this cyclic, moon change this is high drama for all the Zodiac signs. The lucky stars are hamming it up, going overboard, excelling as a hot-dog or being the life-of-the-party but they are all in exaggerated, states. This is showy, active, yang energy. Sh-t happens, is the short story.
This season offers us plenty of food for thought to sustain the Earth’s soul energy as it goes dormant until spring in our western hemisphere.
This takes some reflective time and we can see our little white rabbit is hard at it. The moon rabbit, or Jade Hare (grace) will be kept quite busy and is best left to their own devices to sort out the recipes and develop strategies on their advisory board.
For the dogmatic contenders the old guard surrenders… we will see a shut down of obsolete systems. This energy is coming from a karmic place. Get ready to roll the dice and set sail for uncharted lands as we shift positions on the big wheel.
Watch Earth Sky: Harvest Moon 2012
Official Harvest Moon is @ 10:19 Pm PST, have a happy Harvest Moon. It’s a magical, mystery moon.
The ever fabulous Mooncake and/or Mid-Autumn festival is happening this week in the lucky stars. This has great implications for women, matchmaking, floating sky lanterns, lighting incense, dragon dances and moon gazing as Uranus passes by. It is a festive holiday in Eastern cultures worldwide, for sharing tea and cakes (sweet and savory) with the family.
Use-to-be that mooncakes were sweet with a salty, egg yolk inside to commemorate the moon. Fortunately now (for more worldly tastes) the modern moon cakes are becoming sophisticated (Ganache anyone?) and palette pleasing in more cake-like concoctions. They even come gold-plated for gifts of status. Always glad to see our lady Luna well appreciated for her beauty and luminosity.
Many fun actives can be undertaken to celebrate this yearly offering (Mooncake Festival) to the moon goddess. Her name is “Chang’e” in Chinese and is (interestingly enough) a synonym with “change” in the English language. To me that’s strange… but also very cool since the moon cycles are always changing.
Stars & Signs: posting lucky stars for the Full (yang) Moon (moods) in the Dragon (vitality) sign up to the new Dog (duty) moon coming on October 15th.
The up and coming New Dog Moon on 10/15 is a reset button. This is where a new chapter in the life-adventures for my canine friends will begin. Horses and Tigers will be drawn in (harnessed, looped, included) on the margins to take care of what looks like a mountain of paperwork. Prepare to sign on the dotted lines.
In zen-type thinking, the old adage: “it’s the space between the bars that holds the Tiger” is aptly applied. The tiger expressing our wild (or untamed) natures or a natural state of being.
This can be protective or selective. So it’s not what we see that holds us back, it’s what we don’t see (= unconscious/subconscious thinking of conditioned and/or patterned behavior) and when you figure it out you can then release it.
Good luck until the next post ~
Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose / planetary influences / flying stars: (1) (4) (2) (3): You will be called upon to create revolutionary devices and bring some old-fashioned, spirited pioneering to a new field of opportunity. But right now the luck stars are sour on the outside and quite fussy, too. I can offer a cautionary note to not feel poorly about it or you’ll reflect back, a wrong attitude. Our perspective frames our outlook and shapes the tone of our conscious awareness. You can shift it every time it gets out-of-whack. Prosperity flows and follows where you send it. Turn that tide and move across the water (consciousness) to find a better point-of-view. Be generous in believing.
Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence – Pluto (fate) / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (1): The Moo-moo is the fashion statement of the year as Scared cows are being revered and decorated for their lofty ideals. Banners, ribbons and special hardware to commemorate even a bum steer. Doesn’t matter if they are actually working, they look pretty and have loads of social support. Our planet Pluto now moves in direct motion after a long (sleepy) transit backtrack, this summer. This will quite literally transform situations and circumstances right before our eyes. There is monumental work involved so get out your chisel and hammer. Luck stars are GLOWING brightly for you. Wish and blow on them and they’ll gladly surprise you.
Tiger – aka: Aquarius / planetary influences / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (1): History is in the baking, an old world is becoming a new realm. While extremes are polarizing others, you can see a clear way through. Your lucks stars are at an all time high. You have top tier luck status and love stars blazing. Use them to patch your life tapestry where areas have been worn. There is lots of glitter and sparkle in the costume that goes along with the gigantic, lucky elephant that follows you everywhere. Consider the sky lanterns this season as way to give thanks and send up your brightest ideas to the moon. Then watch lady Luna gift you in return with showers of new good.
Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence – Neptune (harmony) retrograde 6/4 – 11/10 / flying stars: (3) (6) (4) (5): The fortunes portend great sacrifices will lead to heroic acts of virtue. Get your magic potions and lotions ready. Pound out the formula. The White Rabbit holds a lofty position and will soon be on the a quest of a lifetime. Before that happens you will need to get grounded and reset all positions to their new, default settings. Lucks stars have you cooling off those rocket boots you wear. The luck stars are neutral at their best, and risky at their worst. As they say in divination parlance, don’t take any chances. Take a breather. Stick close to base camp before your next social clime. Take time to acclimate with the rough and ready changes that are up and coming, just around the bend.
Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence: Full Moon (moods), Uranus (chaos) retrograde 7/13 to 12/13 / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (6): Rare artifacts and gems stones are falling from the sky to align with your greatest ideals and fill your coffers. You have legendary Heaven luck giving everything you do, a glama-a-rama, boost. Add to that a prize package arriving with sequential numbers, that all add up and up. Keep yourself open to all possibilities and stay focused on the ball. The celestial ball in your case. You are now in an arena that will be like a festival of fantastic delights. Go easy and be filled with the wonder-of-it all. Mine your peeps and cues from the cave you quarry most and stay away from mass hysteria, especially when and/or if you provoke it. Rescale your amour -to fit the crime, don’t give away the kit-and-caboodle.
Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (6): You have grand scale Heaven luck with a Triple crown flying and landing in your luck stars. You are an Agent provocateur. Myth and magic are your calling cards. You can wizard your way into anything you desire by being so darn good-at-it. You hold all the majesty, mystery and dark, chocolate secrets one can revere. Truth and beauty shall set your free. Now is your much awaited, amnesty. Don’t waste anytime to romanticize the past it will only repeat itself, on you. Cut back on the non-essentials and prepare for the unexpected. Limber up for it, real good, everyday. Remember the rule, when you go through hell (and you come out on the other side eventually, or die) make it pay. You will be signing a new lease-on-life.
Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence – Jupiter (increase) / flying stars: (9) (3) (1) (2): Take a load off and put the cart before the horse. Time to let yourself out to pasture. Roam around for a new patch of greener, grass. Horses have some tough-luck stars staring them down, right now. Trust me it’s going to turn around. The new-new, season is about ready to burst into your end-zone and take you to hyper space. You will reach neither regions unknown. As a world explorer, extraordinaire you relish this in your pickle jar. To garnish these new wagers for the fullest effect do not be deceived by what you see in front of you. This is time to let-go and say heave-ho. In the coming days expect to attend to the passing of older relations as the tide turns. Soon the boats you sent sailing will be returning to a safe and sound, harbor.
Goat – aka: Cancer, sheep, deer / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (4): Go for the gusto, green lights are flashing and you have super, lucky stars keeping all your ducks lined-up in a nice, neat row. The opportunities are ripe for the picking. Select whatever fruits you like to put in your basket or on your headdress. What goes-around, comes-around. Lucky stars are bringing you a smorgasbord of delights to pick and choose from. Stay focused and you’ll be favored for a long-shot (that you take now) while the time is so-right! Your super-ball will hit the power spot and keep ringing up points …long as you set-up circumstances in regulated, sequences.
Monkey – aka: Leo, lion / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (4): Make your move and do the deal. Luck stars are rolling in your favor so don’t waste them on some dalliance or delusions. There are solid ways and means to effect the entire lifestyle change you have always dreamed of. The arrangement is tricky though. You must pick and choose from the menagerie you have laid out in front of you. Take the options to put on a showcase of your own, raw talents, not the adaptations of someone else. Step off the trapeze and get your balance. These lucky stars need to be properly aligned to do their job correctly, get the best advice you can and then take it with you to all the way to the bank. Don’t let your dreams escape without you.
Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster / planetary influence: Venus (love & luxe) 10/2 to 10/28 / flying stars: (7) (1) (8) (9): Take another lap around the winners circle. Your lucks stars are on a fast track to nether regions of exquisite delight. There are bonus stars and infinity luck that have an insignia of your best, crest stamped on them. The bird is a showy and imperialistic creature by nature so you can be very pleased with yourself. You also have love luck flying in the window and providing the kind of companionship you’ve always longed for and/or cherish most. Birds get all the eggs in their basket so be (very) careful not to drop this unique opportunity. Expand the realm of your greatest estate and make history. Set-it-in-stone, by your gracious self.
Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence – Sun (image) 9/22-10/23, Saturn (time), Mercury (messenger) 9/16 – 10/4 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (8): Que Sera Sera is the theme for your super-dynamic luck stars this season. Go with it and let the world unfold a new chapter for you. The set-backs are only a temporary glitch until the new system comes online. When it does you’ll be going full speed ahead. It’s been dog-gone awful in some ways but once Saturn moves out of your world you will see some pretty amazing luck pick-up the pieces. Lose the slack and re-tool your whole outlook to get a bead on it’s whereabouts.
Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle / planetary influence – Mercury (messages) 10/5 – 10/28, Mars (pure energy) 8/23 to 10-6, Saturn (time) 10/5/12 – 12/23/14 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (8): Jumbo jet-setter, luck stars are flying high and driving you hard. There is an instant game changer, deal breaker and re-arranger just up around the next corner, so don’t brake, ease into it.

This zone is a launch pad set to go into new frontiers and take on new adventures in storytelling and myth making. All systems are functioning and it’s in the countdown phase. The special effects make rainbows out of all those old smoke-and-mirrors, routines. Mars makes love, melt in your hand.
