Full Moon Cake

Full Hare, Harvest Moon & Mooncake Festival ~ September 19, 2013

Chang'e Moon Goddess of Immortality

Chang’e Moon Goddess of Immortality

In the middle of the night on September 18th and 19th (9/19 @ 4:13AM) we have a full Harvest Moon and the Auspicious Moon Cake Festival. This is also our full moon for the upcoming Autumnal Equinox on the 22nd of September, 2013 when the Sun moves over into the Dog sign.

This whimsical Hare moon is jam-packed with Folkish lore and supremely lucky combinations! In honor of this fortunate festival and our harvest (in the sign of the Hare) moon I’ve designed each sign to reflect a feminine aspect of the goddess.

What does that mean?

Goddess Xi Wang Mu of the West

Goddess Xi Wang Mu of the West

That means this Yang Full, moon (ripe, harvest) which is said to be all-good, will define our feminine nature. This is Yang-intrinsically-yin energy, aka: the good side. To paraphrase Wikipedia sources from antiquity:

In the earliest known forms of divination the oracle bone inscriptions mention the Queen Mother of the Shang Dynasty (1766-1122 B.C.).

Crack-making on day IX,9 day; we divined. if we make offering to the eastern mother and the western mother, there will be approval.” (unquote)

Jade Moon Rabbit mixing the elixir of life (mooncake or mochi)

The East being the Hare Goddess (lunar) and the Goddess of the West being Xi Wang Mu. These are the feminine divine. Another way to say it is that the feminine principle is being is fulfilled. Taken all together this is auspicious through and through.

Moon Festival Goddess

Moon Festival Goddess

In ancient lore this is a “love moon” and in folk tales it is said when you send your heartfelt wishes to the moon the goddess will reply favorably in due time.

How to participate in this special mediation for love: over the next few days just wait for the moon to rise at dusk and speak to the goddess from your heart. Then celebrate (eat cake or fruit pie, drink wine, dance, lite lanterns or candles) as if you have already gotten what you wished for. Think not of wanting… but only of having and being fulfilled.

Mid Autumn Festival

Mid Autumn Festival

This romantic moon is lucky-in-love and brimming with treasures. Speak to the Goddess or speak from your heart but let love grow and be full. Keep the goddess alive by honoring her in your soulful self and seeing her in others.

In the Flying Star sequence this month the heart center features Peach Blossom luck. This brings love and academic luck plus popularity that can give you an edge. Use it to stay grounded and balanced in your feeling nature. Don’t speak your mind, instead let love shine through and sparkle in your eyes.

Goddess Chang'e of peace, love & harmony

And I must say in selecting Goddesses through time to play a role here in this post, that female deities and goddesses are a thrilling and exotic group of gals. They offer us wisdom, truth and ageless beauty that is brimming with majesty and light! Long live the goddess in our everyday lives.

Myth and merry making doesn’t get any better than this, it’s pure bliss. No wonder humans are biologically wired for desire, it truly is all about the goddess.

Blue Monkey and Goddess Cretan Fresco at Akrotiri

Monkey ~ Leo (drives ambition) / direction – WSW (talent) / Flying Stars: (2/5 – 2/1) = The Illness Star coupled with the Accident Star does not spell disaster, in fact they follow a paternity strand that can be auspicious in the long run. They are joined with an Illness Star and Money Luck Star of miracles and income. So hang on your luck is on its way around to you!

Planetary Influences: Mars (war God) and the full Moon Ascendent (horizon) rise again in the sign of the Monkey! The history of the monkey goddess is one of mysterious shape-shifters and the genii clan of storytellers. Sometimes known as the Vanara these are powerful goddesses who rule the universe. They have many stories that date to the dawn of humanity. To carry story forward requires courage, the kind that takes a grand adventure that leads the way into our modern age. These goddesses are constant changers and alteration~ists. First and foremost they are known as the magical genii and wizards of yore. They have super natural powers and use them often. All the while as men have waged war these goddesses have been the brave keepers of “knowing” throughout history. With endless stories to tell and antics to propel them into a new realm they are seldom bored. Or ever held up by anything that gets in the way of their inquisitive and intuitive natures. These goddess are the inventors and unrelenting movers and shakers. They rock and roll onward with fierce ambition and blazing radiance.

Bird ~ Virgo (phoenix, rooster), (esteems virtue) / direction – West (creation) / Flying Stars: (7/1 – 7/6) = The Danger Star and Money Star of miracles are co-mingled for incentives in tool making while the Danger Star and Victory Luck are sending a bolt of lightening (called a lucky strike) into where much ado about celebrations abound.

Planetary Influences: Our Sun (image) is closing out its yearly cycle in your sign right now. Endings and partings can bring focus to the seasonal variations that blow in with the winds of change. The Goddess of the bird sign is beyond legend from the dawn of time. This is the goddess of love, war and all that is mythology about our human kind. She presides over marriage rites, justice and systems of accounting. As the Goddess Maat she weigh’s the heart of our souls, outbound from life, against a feather. This goddess is discriminating in the minutia that defines morality and what matters. Often her countenance remains youthfully unconcerned about things like chores. Probably her cult takes care of all that for her so she can get back to fertility rites and much more. Goddess Nut, is the lady of the sky and she is alive and well throughout historical references and in pictorial forms. She has many shrines and places of worship for her loyal followers to find her. She is popular beyond compare but still modest and keeps her private life under wraps. Ishtar is a star goddess the came down from the heavens to earth, to create humans and give us a better life. Her symbol is a star and a rosette that she wears or shares with others and is she is extremely kind.

Dog ~ Libra (lion), (serves duty) / direction – WNW (travel) / Flying Stars: (6/9 – 6/5) = Victory Luck and Fulfillment Luck moored with Heaven Luck and the Accident Star have you running for cover while making plans to go forward as even the hint of a chance is being discovered.

Planetary Influences: Our planet Mercury (messages) is still churning up the waves and making things a bit testy in your territory. This Goddess of the hunt is a protect-ress and our Lady luckiness personified. She originates way-way back in prehistorical, religious times. As the mistress of all animals and the woodland creatures her duty calls to her as the goddess of the forest. Known as Atremis and in some cases Diana, she has avatars of many colors. This is a goddess of mighty power and second sight. This spirited lady takes flight whenever there is trouble and saves the day on the double. A goddess for all seasons too, she is oft running around to keep things going and never slowing. Life cycles have her forging ahead of the pack so we all stay on track. Naturally that makes this sonic, goddess girl pretty tough to pin down. Let’s just say she has her own agendas and doesn’t let anything get in the way of her loyalty and fair play. Frolicking in the wild is something she likes to do a lot-of, if she weren’t so busy working out the myriad details of managing a big, family life. For the little creatures of the earth this god-girl is the Star of the deity group.

Miss Piggy Space Goddess

Miss Piggy Space Goddess

Pig ~ Scorpio (boar, eagle), (confers nobility) / direction – NW (resources) / Flying Stars: (6/9 – 6/5) = Heaven luck and Fulfillment Luck partnered with Victory Luck and the Danger Star bring a heap of lucky options that combine and com-bust making daily life a surprising delight and/or a terrible fright.

Planetary Influences: Saturn (time) and the True Node (axis point or key) gravitate well with Lady Luck Venus as they are all sitting on top of each other in a pile of bubbles. This is quite a combination of relations to suss out, but this goddess is no stranger to complex configurations. I think Mlle. Piggy says it all. The pig goddesses are a lively bunch. These lasses are makers of magic, not hype and blend tasteful brouhaha out of the herbs and spices of life. These goddess turn people they don’t like into wild animals. So stay on their good side for heavens sake and to maintain your own well-being. Circe and Varahi are part of team pigginess in this quarter. These goddesses usually end up ruling islands and living in grand mansions in remote locales. Basically they spend time doing exactly as they please after someone makes the mistake of really ticking them off. Let that be a lesson to ya-all, all. This go-go, girl has got the golden key in her little foot pad. Fearless to the core of their being, this goddessa is not the least bit afraid to twist the plot and turn the screw. Ruling the night scene they have that whole Tantra love thing locked down tight and sealed with aplomb that covers eons over the time continuum. You can join them but you can’t out best them.

Karni Mata ~ Rat Goddess

Karni Mata ~ Rat Goddess

Rat ~ Sagittarius (rules mind) / direction – North (career) / Flying Stars: (1/4 – 1/9) = Love Luck and Peach Blossom Luck blended with Money Luck and Fulfillment Luck seem to just appear like a whole armada of ships coming to shore laden with treasure at your beck and call. All hands on deck these luck stars come fully loaded.

Planetary influences leave you dredging the bottom of the chart but with a hook line and sinker where the big fish are biting. This showers great, good fortune on you and your kin, my furry friend. The lucky stars as a harbinger of miss placed items that fall through the crevices where you’ll be walking. It’s like you are a metal detector of the long lost and suddenly, found on a merry-go-round. You’ll be picking up stuff everywhere, constantly. This goddess is the saint of all saints and has been venerated for centuries and beyond as the beautiful and powerful Nyx. She is known for answering prayers and sharing the wealth so we can all have some. Black rats, white rats and the whole kit and caboodle are alive and well, living in the palace, temple. This goddess is a match-maker with a solid stroke of independence to do things her way. Don’t cross her unless you are given a free pass, a signal and a wave through. This methodology is for the better, best and for the good of all concerned. Honor and show her respect and she’ll help you realize your fondest dreams. Reports are she is a great responder of requests and adores avid devotion. Show her your love and keep the candles burning and your visionary desires can be made manifest like morning glories.

Hathor Egyptian Cow Goddess

Hathor Egyptian Cow Goddess

Ox ~ Capricorn (governs status) / direction – NE (scholarship) / Flying Stars: (8/2 – 8/7) = Infinity luck with the Illness star and Infinity Luck with the Danger Star have the Lucky Stars in a bunch of twists that keep you tied-up in the haves and have-nots. Just digest things slowly and surely and it will work itself out of a bind, entirely.

Planetary Influences: Our planet, the dwarf Pluto (fate) is making connections in all directions and carving out diamonds in the sky. The news is looking better on the horizontal view than any vertical strides so don’t reach too high, or stack things up. Just spread things out wide and then you’ll be fine. The Goddess Hathor is literally one holy, sacred cow. She is the Egyptian goddess of the Pharaohs and has many stories to untangle and unwind as a yarn through time. Extremely popular as a deity and godlike governess her stature is one of immense status in this world and in the afterlife. One that carries on into ad-infinium. She is associated with the love goddess Venus and Aphrodite. This sage lady is a motherly type. Known for her beauty and regal sense of power she presides over the divine concepts of life in the earliest, wee hours of mans linage. She is into music and dance and has to keep track of the milky way galaxy so the stars don’t collide.

Lady and the Tiger postcard

Lady and the Tiger postcard ~ an everyday Goddess

Tiger ~ Aquarius (projects vision) / direction – ENE (knowledge and power) / Flying Stars: (8/2 – 8/7) = Infinity Luck with the Illness Star and Infinity Luck with the Danger Star, suggest you stay poised in cautionary mode with an eye to the future – so just take it back a step and move things as slow as they can go.

Planetary Influences: The illustrious part of fortune in this moon chart is sitting just under the surface in your sign like a pearl on the half shell. It is covered in a light dusting of cosmic powder and is disconnected from any formal patterns. It is what it is, and it’s really there but presently as a clandestine asset. When this Goddess lady rides the tiger good triumphs over evil and all sorrow is removed. This is one venerated lady!! She is the temple goddess of love and mercy known compassionately as Guan Yin, her high holiness, herself. In the Hindu version she is the great and powerful Durga, the vegetation spirit and savoir of the mortals. She brings success and triumphs over trials and troubles in perilous moments so we feel comforted and supported. As the Empress of heaven and earth it is she who watches over us and brings help to relieve our desperation. Immortal from the beginning of time, she is a ferocious fighter and Warrior, Countessa. This lady of divine intervention and perpetual motion keeps a tiger-eye over the world and everything in it. When you need a friend who won’t let you down, this goddess is always around. Just ask her and she will guide and align you to safer ground. Her way through is a path where dreams come true.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Luna Moon Goddess

Luna Moon Goddess

Hare ~ Pisces (rabbit, cat, fish), (saves grace) / direction – East (health and family) / Flying Stars: (3/6 – 3/2) = A Quarreling Star and Heaven Luck with a Quarreling Star and the Illness Star have you ducking for cover. Luck is playing hard to get so re-shuffle the deck. My best advice is to stay inside and rest-up for your next big mission impossible.

Planetary Influences: Our magical Moon of the yearly harvest is also the Goddess of immortality. She rises above the fray, far and away from Neptune (consciousness) and Chiron (healer) who are is also in her sign. Always making history the NASA space exploration was attuned to her magnificence. “Chang’e (or Chang’o) was mentioned in a conversation between Houston and the Apollo 11 crew before the first Moon landing in 1969, Buzz Aldrin: Okay. We’ll keep a close eye out for the bunny girl.” (unquote) Need I say more? Right now flying star patterns have you laying low on the totem pole and accomplishing tasks under the radar. Get some much needed restoration to bring back your rosy-glow. Your legendary ways continue to bring history, mystery and endless intrigues to the masses. Long associated with agriculture down the millenniums of the timeline this goddess divine is one busy lady in the cabbage patch. The Goddess Lady Luna rides her chariot around the moon and yet she still finds the time to be a triple goddess of unlimited potential. Now that’s multitasking, whew! She is associated with over 50 deities to worship her holiness and her prowess graces the best loved cults. She is the Queen of the hearts and Stars. If you are a member of this jet-set of propulsion just remember to breath, often, amen.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dragon Lady

Dragon Lady

Dragon ~ Aries (instill vitality) / direction – ESE (abundance) / Flying Stars: (4/7 – 4/3) = Peach Blossom Luck and a Danger Star join-up with Peach Blossom Luck and a Quarreling Star which says stay out of a hot kitchen where flames can flicker wildly and spend time praying to your gods for the pressing concerns that need minding.

Planetary Influences: The planet Uranus (chaos) is almost midway through a long and exhausting exaltation in your sign. Not surprising then that this goddess is the Queen of Heaven and she is cited in the Book of Revelations as Woman of the Apocalypse. Lovingly known as Queen Mother, Mary, Gaia and our Lady of Guadalupe. As a goddess she has a gigantic following in the masses. Not to mention one bad ass reputation for stirring up trouble on the double. When not paving new roadways she can be found basking in the glory of her Teflon coated reputation of sheer elegance. This goddess draws a crowd like nobodies business (nigh throngs) and come dancing off the half shell from sea-foamed oceans. The mermaid in a shimmering veil is one of her incarnations. A siren but never a sad song, the dragon goddess knows how to stay above-it-all. Euripides who wrote the great Greek tragedies described these godlike ladies thus; “winged maidens and daughters of Earth” and she has her best known associations with the mythic Sphinx and griffins of old and yore. Affectionately known as Dragon lady or She-dragon everyone gives this lovely lass a wide, over-sized berth on the ship of life. Plus anything else she wants without even asking.

Goddess Min Qetesh Reshpu

Goddess Min Qetesh Reshpu

Serpent ~ Taurus (snake), (distills wisdom) / direction – SE (income) / Flying Stars: (4/7 – 4/3) = Peach Blossom Luck and a Danger Star with Peach Blossom Luck and a Quarreling Star, suggest you keep the ransom note ready. That’s in case you need to buy some extra-effort to get the formula (for the secret-serum) of life rejuvenation hashed-out for delivery, in-full, and on time.

Planetary Influences have you coming out on top again! Landing in the high point of a bigger cycle this lady raises a curtain to bring down the house! And has the best seats covered in satin and brocade cushions. But there are a few caveats floating in this mix-ology of her mythic, majestic proportions. None of them come up short or stale though so go ahead and balance the scales in your flavorite dish of delights. Just don’t eat anything out of the ordinary in just one bite. Take things easy and in moderation. The serpent goddess is the gilded, golden guide through the afterlife. She leads us into a spiral of spirited renewals and drives carnal passions through the gates of hell. It is she who buries the secret elixir of life hidden from ordinary folk. That’s so-as not to scare the children with the realities of strife. Snakes are Femme fatales known for their mesmerizing charms and long lasting beauty. Dating all the way back to antiquity and beyond that even, they defy age while converting souls to saved from soiled. This sassy, lassy is the keeper of the sanctuary and hearth. She is a dyed in the wool, true-blue hue of a domestic goddess who presides over the rites and rituals of humanity. Just like Eve in the garden she is the primal force of cosmic energy called the Shakti or Ninth Heaven Goddess in the Tao. She is the goddess of empowerment. If she doesn’t devour you with life’s complex challenges she’ll treat you to delicious rewards with extra benefits whens she is good and ready for it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goddess Epona

Goddess EponaHorse ~ Gemini (twins), (delivers power) / direction – South (fame) / Flying Stars: (9/3 – 9/8) = Fulfillment Luck and the Quarreling Star merge with Fulfillment Luck and the Infinity Star! Looks like you’ll be rolling all aces and take up new space in the place of your hearts desire. These great and glorious lucky stars giving you an advantage on all the bases!

Planetary Influences have made a switch to the other side of the divine line to add some extra advantages to your place on the wheel, it’s bonanza time! The horse goddess is the Goddess Epona and belongs to the legend of Zelda. Also we can add our Lady Godiva to this luxy, buxom mix. The Horse goddess is a lady of civility and agility. She’s whip smart and rides the soul into the afterlife for a freshly, pressed return. This Celtic queen is a goddess of gifts and nobility, of goodness and tranquility. She is the bearer of grain and sovereign states of being. Her ride is often accounted in tales and legends that depict her beauty and nudity but with the ability to overthrow a kingdom in toil with nary a stitch or weapon in sight. She is the May queen of merry fertility and spring. As a golden goddess she dates to the 14th century BC and is associated with the White horse and the Sun chariot. She is depicted as heroic and as a bringer of salvation to the common folk. This goddess will glide you through the dream world and back again safely. Her myth is always in the making. It is one that seeks to bind us all together into one book of mysteries. Modesty and majesty, is all hers and it goes without saying. Proper etiquette is a prerequisite in her land of enchantments, so act accordingly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goddess of Prosperity

Goddess of Prosperity

Goat ~ Cancer (sheep, deer, crab), (desires peace) / direction – SW (love and relations) / Flying Stars: (2/5 – 2/1) = The Illness Star combined with the Accident Star does not spell disaster since they follow a Ho Tu pattern of paternity that can be auspicious in the long run. All-the-while you are awaiting that to unfold you have the Illness Star with the Money Luck Star of Miracles and Income to tide you over in the short term, any-old-how you want to bake-it, it comes out good.

Planetary Influences: Jupiter (increase) the Grand Duke resides in your palace to add a nice variety to the daily grind. The goat goddess is the fabled, fairy princess, Apsara spirit of the clouds, a nymph and Queen of the woodland spirits. She is a Pixie and a sprite that graces the great legends and lore from times immemorial. Known as Amalthea she is a Goddess who has a checkered and speckled past, with spots here and splotches there. But only because she dates so far back, as to have made the very threads, to twine the fabric the mythical stories; tales of the gods and Zeus are woven from. This goddess has transformational powers as a she-goat called Capra, or Capella and also, simply the little goat. She is a dear-heart and darling so great that she has a constellation of her own stars. Caution is noted that she should never be confused with the sign of Capricorn – which is not related to her constellation or this goddess. Her primary concerns are as a nurturing mother and giver of unending kindness and tenderness. She frequently is associated with twins and has a dual pair of star children. In her other guises she is known as Rhea the Titan Queen of Heaven. The Goat Goddess is a primal goddess of nature and motherhood known by many cultures and by many names. She keeps children safe. She is Cybele the Great Mother Goddess of resurrection and rebirth. And she is Tara of everlasting hope and divine grace, ever giving, selfless and infinitely inspiring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Peach pie anyone? I say yes!

Legends that speak to us from the farthest reaches in our human times echo words from the the mystical Kunlun mountains. This is where the peaches of immortality come ripe every thousand years in Xi Wang Mu’s garden palace where she serves them to her mortal quests at a grand celebration.

Moon Goddess Astarte

Moon Goddess Astarte

I conclude this post with another quote from ancient texts (excerpted Wikipedia sources):

“Flourishing parasols, we reach the chronograms’ extremity; Riding on the mist, I wander to Lofty Whirlwind Peak. The Lady of the Supreme Primordial descends through jade interior doors; The Queen Mother opens her Blue-gem Palace. Celestial people-What a Crowd! A lofty meeting inside the Cyan Audience Hall. Arrayed Attendants perform Cloud Songs; Realized intonations fill the Grand Empty Space. Every thousand years, her purple crabapple ripens; Every four kalpas, her numinous melon produces abundantly. This music differs from that at the feast in the wilderness— So convivial, and certainly infinite” (dated: Wu Yun. CTS. 4942).

Thank you my lofty readers and I’ll be posting your lucky stars for the next new Moon cycle on October 4th, 2013.

For the 1st time I have uploaded a video introduction to the KittySol blog content ~ look, listen & be lucky …everlasting!

http://youtu.be/0Vp0Zo6clS4

On September 5th we have a New Moon in the sign of the bird. The bird is also known as the Phoenix. New Moons are dark moons.

They’re dark moons because by their nature the Sun and the Moon are conjunct and the moon is invisible.

harvest moon

Mercury will also be in the sign of the bird, its ruling sign, so there will be lots of chatter on the lines. This is a peculiar new moon, lots of mysterious things yet to surface.

This moon comes during our fall harvest season so it’s an excellent time to be planting seeds to meet our needs. The Luck Stars feature “love ~ luck” but with an accidental twist.

So be careful whose lap you fall into. I wish you luck and I’ll be back for the full moon.

Here are your ~ Lucky Stars ~ for all the signs in the Nu Bird Moon.

The Monkey sign rises on the ascendent of the zodiac wheel and spins counter clockwise in the direction of the stars. So that’s the way we will go…

The theme however is still Bird driven. This sign is as a visual oriented, watcher, where pictures can speak louder than words.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

juice the goose

Monkey ~ Leo (drives ambition) / direction – WSW (talent)

Planetary Influences: The Ascendent (what’s on the horizon) hits this spot at 17 degrees and the Part of Fortune (opps and pops = opportunities and possibilities) lands here at 17 degrees as well. Is all this incidental gerrymandering by coincidence or the artful arrangement of a cosmic design? You decide, but hurry-up quick and take a side as the suns goes down on this loop in time. Planet Mars (war god, pure energy) is hot on your heels peeling rubber for a new galactic destination in your pent house. You Monkeys will make space travel look like a picnic in the park with sizzle and spark. Heliotropics are still in focus so it’s a sun-centered world when you secure your own sense of self before trying to help others. Your triad partners (Rat and Dragon signs) provide an action-packed adventures filled with zest and entertainment! Still though you are all wound up tight like a drum with you super bud the Snake. So learn to love’um and never leave them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

early bird

early bird

Bird ~ Virgo (phoenix, rooster), (esteems virtue) / direction – West (creation)

Planetary Influences: New Moon (moods) and Sun (image) are invisible wish makers that mean believing is seeing. What you believe is what you will see, not the other way around. Once you truly believe something is really, real it materializes without any extra efforts. Or if you think something is real is seems like it is there, even if it’s not. So make up your bird brain about it to utilize this brand of magic to manifest the most of what it is you do want. That way you can stop having what you don’t like hanging around like old wallpaper. The yearly cycles have given you a cutting scythe to remove debris that hastens the transition to having what you hanker for. Prepare for the new, unknown, before it is revealed by cleansing and casting off the excess or worn out to make room for it. Your triad team (Ox and Snake signs) will have you keeping up with audits and presenting the laudatory results if there are any. But your Dragon partner will actually do all the talking, so stop squawking and get on with it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Feathered Friend

feathered friend

Dog ~ Libra (lion), (serves duty) / direction – WNW (travel)

Planetary Influences: Venus our lady of luck (love & luxe) has you ripe and ready for a steady gig in the lower quad. A nice little pocket where juicy fruits fall off the vine at the drop of a dime. But you are still figuring that out because in your love life, your fetching ways are still awaiting for you to come calling. The lion share of your luxury liners are still far and few between. So go ahead and feel free to count those chickens before they are hatch-lings that you need to care for every minute, daily. Enjoy what you have got before responsibilities soar out of the stratosphere. Balance the scales to be light as feather and stay off the dread mill. Keep fit as a fiddle and stick to the game plan or gosh darn-it, go get one. Your triad pals (Tigers and Horse signs) want you to go-all-out and not stay in. Plus your secret buddy the Hare is ready for traction and the luck stars say, start packing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

eagle eye

Pig ~ Scorpio (boar, eagle), (confers nobility) / direction – NW (resources)

Planetary Influences: Grand daddy Saturn (time) and the True Node (elliptic axis) are getting set to deliver a turn-key on a supremo set of crowning, luck stars in short order. To get them fitted to your best features you may have to jump through a fiery hoopla and holler. But on the other side of that whirling tornado is a big heap of denaro. Hop, skip and jump is all I can say. The solar disk is shining brightly so it’s time to make hell pay. A superior Grand Trine resides in your zone. It is still chiming a bell to stick the toll in your back slot, right where the money goes. This and more is coming if you have already initiated and instigated the digging of a long row that needs hoeing. The contrary nature of your triad friends (Goat and Hare signs) have you chasing butterflies and making moonshine. This pattern also leads all the way to the bank. Go figure, it’s not a bad life if you don’t have anything better to do. Your Tiger buddy looks fierce and filled with fury but under that gruff exterior is a buttery center of purr gold that likes to fritter and frolic. Just rub the lamp until it gleams and let the genii deliver all your wishes to the front door to your dreams.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

night owl

Rat ~ Sagittarius (rules mind) / direction – North (career)

Planetary influences have left you some wide open territory to tinker and toil in under some super-ducky, lucky stars. Shimmy out from under the dreary dungeon you’ve been hold-up in, and shape-shift your reality any way you can shake-it, bake-it, or just can-it. Love luck is sparkling and shimmering with highlights all aglow. You have a double dose of extra income luck that can trickle in to pay the bills and pickle up the tab of any unexpected expenses. Your triad comrades (Dragon and Monkey signs) are digging deep into the tranches to fill the crevices that bring you back into the fold. Pay most of your attention to the disciplines and preparations that set the wheels in motion. Otherwise situations can quickly run-a-muck and instead of alluring, they could allude you. Your best buddy the Ox will help you tighten the ropes or add some slack so things don’t stray off into the wild yonder of an unwieldy crew. Keep making adjustments accordingly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ox ~ Capricorn (governs status) / direction – NE (scholarship)

Planetary Influences: Pluto (fate) has been keeping your feet to the fire and your nose on the grind stone with a tough square. This god awful business recently fell apart leaving you with a gaping hole in the ceiling of your celestial under pinnings. Looks like in spite of any dressed-up and over blown reports you won’t be able to pass-go through this hyper awareness, zone unnoticed. You may get side-lined at a pit-stop while the gears are put back where they were supposed to be in the first place. Not somewhere on second base where no one can find them. This means a new configuration has yoked you in to harness the facts of the matter. When you rise to this occasion it can transform into a breakfast of champions in an academic arena. Before that can happen a place is set at the table where you will need some deep revisions installed to cross a distant divide. Get your running shoes ready and pace yourself. In some cases you could be paying outta pocket all the compensation to right the riddle of this puzzler. Responsibilities have been left to stray, far and away, from the formal boundaries outlined in the guidebook and are now left floundering. Your triad pals (Snake and Bird signs) are all tied up in red tape to untangle it. Luckily your best friend the Rat has got your back if you come, get squeaky clean and abide to it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

watch like a hawk

watch like a hawk

Tiger ~ Aquarius (projects vision) / direction – ENE (knowledge and power)

Planetary Influences have given you the slip, and trip into a deep end and dark soul session. Just when you thought you’d gotten-off with out a hitch there is a stitch in time that takes you back a bit. You’ll need some serious searching and seeking to discover the best measures that will naturally align with this riddle. Its time to get back on track with your true, inner nature. To do this muster your courage and pull the sword from the stone. Use it to hack off the head of the monster that is devouring your prime time efforts. Then clean the slate for a whole new kind of community plate. Mediate the frayed edges with the one who you sent off in a leaky boat. Make it your life’s work to plug the holes until it floats. Dive-in and save that disaster before it soaks up all your excess resources and a hefty bonus to boot. Your triad chums (Dog and Horse signs) will sympathize, not criticize with your plight. A mysterious pet Pig helps you bridge the distance over the moat to get to the castle gate. Get cracking on the things you have been slacking-on. Your Lucky stars are on hiatus til further notice.

You’ve got a Grand trine working overtime in your triad group (Goat and the Piglet) that is simply put, divine. It is the one thing that when tried, rings true every time. It can’t possibly be be beat in any contextual pursuit so don’t even try. Sometimes the best medicine is a bowl full of nibbles and a good belly laugh with your super buddy the Dog.
