The Blue Tigress Moon

On August 20th to the 21st we have a seasonal blue moon in the sign of the Tiger. This is our last full moon before the fall harvest and with all endings it’s a plot twister that brings forth a new beginning.

In the chart of this Blue Tiger Moon both the moon and the ascendant rise in the sign of the Tiger.

Mysta Goddess of the Moon

This is yang (positive) feminine energy.

Where New Moons are said to be seed planting times, a time of reflection, a time of growth, this full moon is a time of action!

Tigers by nature like to be in the now, they like the new-new and they want to be where things are happening in the moment.

I encourage and inspire you to rise to the occasion; to take action in this adventure of a lifetime and let your ending be your new beginning.

Good Luck ~ I’m posting your Lucky Stars for this full moon in the sign of the Tiger.

Starting at the top of the chart ~ & ~ going around the wheel in the direction it moves:

PIG ~ (Scorpio) / Planetary influence: Saturn (Grandfather time), True Node (key) – NW

As the Tiger’s secret buddy you’ll be kept in the loop of a big swirl. You are sitting pretty at the top of the charts where the temps are mild to melting; dress accordingly. Long fought and hard won battles have the cosmic wheel of fortune turning and grinding up gold dust in your favor. The keys to the Emerald city are being given to you! The bigger picture has not yet been revealed but it looks like your work is done. A team of experts can step right up (and in) to offer aid. Also to atone for any tainted or damaged roots the piglet has unearthed while digging in the dirt. Anything needing alterations will be adjusted to your refined specifications just as you would have wished them. The winds of change will keep your Victory Luck flags flying as ships laden in treasure return to your harbor on celestial clouds. Celebrate your highness and mighty good fortunes in style.

DOG ~ (Libra) / Planetary influence: Venus (love & luxe) – WNW

Hot diggity dog! Dog is part of the Tiger’s triad, with the horse sign. Suddenly what you’ve been wanting (and giving to in overtime) is coming to you. You’ll be rolling aces as Venus our lady of luck has moved into one of her exalted spaces in your station. Not everything is roses… there is a large square off in the skyline. Dogs will be holding their own off-in a corner of one rocky and tough configuration. The Dragon sign is in direct opposition and speaks loudly to challenge your new position. The way out of this contention is through hospitality in the Hare. The Hare sign is Dog’s secret bud and you’ll need to head things off at the pass (circle the wagons) to correct this mess. Dragon sends a shot over your starboard bow. Be wise and wonderful and shine your way through it with diplomacy and white kid, gloves. And if that doesn’t have them eating out of your hand then release the peace doves and swoon them with your solid gold, selfless heart.

BIRD ~ (Virgo) – West

Danger, danger! Use extreme caution, there are still a few irons in the fire that can char and feather your crown. Luckily the Sun (image) is just a hop, skip, and jump away from entering your sign. The big climax of the Moon’s summer season hands you the mantle of power just as the yearly harvest begins. To seal the deal Mercury (messenger) is hot on his heels with the paperwork neatly, completed. The actual polarity of our Sun’s disk shifts it poles, simultaneously. This unprecedented shake-up reverses a long standing trend. It will have you crowing at daybreak again and again. A new day dawns for you as the latest deluge of a high tide sweeps away the last remnants of an old regime. Your precision craft is back in fashion to cut away the shaft. Bring your over-sized shears and shave away the fuzzy math. The apparitions of another era dissolve in the first rays of light. The Watch bird is an emblem of service that you wear well. It won’t matter what others didn’t want to have happen, once it’s already here, it’s here.

MONKEY ~ (Leo) / Planetary influence: Sun (image), Mercury (messages), Part of fortune (hypothetical: possibilities and opportunities) – WSW

Shine on soulfully and woefully with your one last chance to cash in on a lucky advantage. The Sun is passing out of your sign for another year and Mercury is chasing after him in sizzling pursuit. Improper past actions could hog-tie your future opportunities. Circumstances are not clear. Whenever you make a choice it means you must also give up the ghost, my dear. Holding-on while letting go is keeping you in suspended animation. Meanwhile false fronts and fake facades will fall from grace as you chip away at them. As a reminder, you can’t butter your bread on both sides without getting greasy fingers. The Sun (image) is in taunt opposition to Lord Neptune (harmony) whilst Mercury opposes the full moon, Lady Luna. You may not pass go or skate-by unless you know (and only do) what’s good for you. A glaring error is a bigger drag then you ever intended: get rid of it. Penalties or privileges meted out will depend on your own presence of mind and how well you’ve cultivated your sterling reputation. Never take other peoples chances, just make do with your own. This is a total pay-out or an unprecedented pay-off in the price of heavy fines. Don’t hold the party line, let this one go whichever way it falls. Follow the popcorn trail and avoid the standard fare. You’ll need the clever ingenuity of your buddy the snake to keep the jungle beat thumping along.

GOAT ~ (Cancer) / Planetary influence: Jupiter (Grand Duke, benefic), Mars (War God, energy) – SW

Lucky stars look under-served and over extended on the home front. There is a good chance you are going to be managing things from behind a lead curtain rather than on center stage. The large square in this sky is drawing lines to your pastureland that is in opposition to your stated plans. this could leave you in a compromising position. One that could get you shaved and sheared. The Grand Duke is still the great Benefic in your backyard zone so stand back, stay quiet and remain clam. Posers and impostors are staunchly fixed in the wrong position so just let them twist and shout it out. They are like hyenas that have got a scaredy cat pinned down. This is a fate you can escape but you must give up some wrong ideas to lighten the load and go with the flow. Don’t fight this tide or you’ll be ripped and torn apart by it. Someone failed in their duty and it can scatter a house of cards. Pull your game off the table. Be conscious of temporary fixes that have covered cracks and hidden deep fissures in the formal process. Instead do your diligence. The stars are offering you an out if you take it – don’t fake it. Accept fate, don’t temp-it, and things will be improved smoothly and quickly. Or the gifts of hope you are needing will be hiding not seeking.

HORSE ~ (Gemini) – South

By lolling around in the backyard or taking a nap to recharge, you’ll be less inclined to get sun stroke from any over exposure. Tending to your inner sense of well-being is where you’ll have this moon made in the shade. Lucky stars have got you covered so stay under the umbrella. There is a cautionary tale that can untangle the favors you’ve curried if you casually dismiss it. Our current planetary alignments have tight restrictions in position. Abide them don’t hide from them or you’ll only tick them off. As part of the Tigers triad you’ll be free to come and go as you please, if you carry your hall pass with you. Better still use your special privileges to camp out in an underground fortress and stay there until the coast is clear. That is where you can best follow the ball of yarn all the way back to its origins. What others can’t see will be made totally obvious to you – so play fair. Under the radar and out of the conference room, what happens in the layers below the surface will have you minting gold and printing negotiable paper. These coveted strides only come through with the consistent and persistent efforts of those who came before you. All you need do is grab a broom to sweep away the dross and then stick with it, stay committed.

SERPENT ~ (Taurus) – SE

Luck stars are deep, dark, daunting and shrouded in mystery that are making and rewriting history with your name on a classified cover. Seriously, surprising advances are unveiled that will dazzle your adoring masses. Selective services are asking, where is the love in this earthshaking, heart-pounding and thunder-striking, buzz about town? Oh it’s there if you give some over-due attention to fan the flame of your favorite crush. Carry a torch one step forward to re-ignite the embers that smolder your desires. Or tackle your bravest conquest of the ages with your magnetic charms to disarm them and then seal the deal with sweet kisses. Lucky-in-love is yours for the taking when you quicken the pace of the timeline. Or slow things down to savor a sliver of moonlight magic, whichever applies in your instance. You can’t deny what you didn’t try, so get with-it! Sure you need time to mind your peeps and cues. But now the meaning of life infuses you with another half to make things whole. Be brave and bold and dare to go where you have never strayed before. Do that and you may stumble upon the fortune of feeling treasured that leads to an endless story of Amore!! Start the serious business rolling by inviting yourself to the pleasure of your chosen company.

DRAGON ~ (Aries) / Planetary influence: Uranus (chaos) – ESE

Dragging anchor and below deck you have ships sailing and seas that need parting. The moonshine is glaring at your squared off disposition with a frown of suspicion. Round those sharp edges and buff out the spike on the point you are making. otherwise it strikes an off cord. Your now in concert with some stars that align to channel your best efforts but the challenge is to soften the blows and tone down the your staunch retorts. Speaking your mind can come back to haunt you or taunt you, so let the water roll off your back – don’t attack. Be blasé and laz a faire about the whole shebang. They say it’s better to use a carrot than a shtick, and that’s going to be true in this boxing match. Entice and entrance your audience before you go cuffing them in bracelets to their mores. Money can be saved in a direct fashion when you shop the bargain basement of your own surplus. Sure everyone likes a good show but the message-in-a-bottle says let the dog gone, go. There will be another one, a better bet, when you listen-up and stay posed instead of feeling pressured. Love luck sends bankable bucks all the way to the bank to shore-up your finances and enliven your passions.

HARE ~ (Pisces) / Planetary influence: Neptune (Water God, harmony), Chiron (Star, healer) – East

The Powers-that-be have a dynamic wave device for rippling the tides and stirring the waters. And it works splendidly, well. This has bunny business booming and bridging the wider divide to the next stage set. But all the Gothic adventures and exotic pleasures this provides have taken a toll on your sense and sensibilities. You need some nesting time to rebuild your stamina and de frazzle the chore list. Venus in the Dog sign, (cats and rabbits secret buddy) has a saucy love vibe simmering for you, nicely without any extra efforts. The dog and cat are a legendary duo of strife and struggle for power and position. But au contaire they are really in a secret love affair that rivals the best, made matches. Find your compliment to give you contrast. While you’re at-it give Doggie a scratch for his itch, it’ll cure what ails him. With these fancy-dancy luck stars you get a mild reprieve from too much coming and going and going. Regroup and reset your iconic wave for its next big roll. The bunny bides her ways and means to stay fit as a fiddle with a little light fun and tumble. Trust your instincts and listen to your intuition, trust me, not everything is what it seems. There is some wiggle room with a bit more in store for the coming seasons than you originally anticipated.

TIGER ~ (Aquarius) / Planetary influence: Full Blue Moon (yang moods) & Ascendant (horizon) – ENE

Maiden voyages will have your sights pinned on new horizons with the Sun (image) setting and the Moon (moods) rising on your doorstep. With a full moon in your sign and the ascendent (surface) too, you share a double whammy of unexpected good fortune. Something extra-special is found rustling around in the Tigers immaculate den. A whole new view will draw you a bigger portrait of the family picture. Like a bun in the oven that is being baked to perfection you’ve got things coming to fruition without even trying. Even more upside brings a deeper cleaning and broader meaning to a visionary awareness. One that peels off and lays back layers of old thinking. Old filters just won’t fit the future you see unfolding, refit and retool the inner workings. It never hurts to shift your perspective and put things into context for posterity. Now you have a chance to take more things into consideration, to pick-up what was left by the wayside. Tigers prefer to be the aggressor and steer clear of any conflict they didn’t initiate themselves. But what you are running from is not contingent on any drama or trauma. It’s simply a marvel when you allow it to be its natural self, flora and fauna.

OX ~ (Capricorn) / Planetary influence: Pluto (Dwarf, fate) – NE

You’ll be orchestrating an opera of unintended consequences and a setting up a large set of circumstances to resolve it. Administrations and their bindings need a good shucking and jiving and now is the moment to pursue it. Purge any over-arching ambitions that have been allowed to get in the way of the everyday bricks and mortar business. Work projects are back on the schedule to keep you buzzing and popping like a beehive. Everything comes to a head at the same moment for drama, drama and more drama as the main theme. Your community spirit is no longer a secondary notion but a top, primary concern. Lucky Stars are shining divinely in your barnyard stables to remove any shadows. The good times will continue to roll out the red carpet. But keep an eye on the plots you’ve got on the stove as they thicken. What boils over can spoil the deal and spill into many other venues. The square aspects of the planets above us are hardened into a glob of monsters. There is just too much evidence to avoid the obvious. The harvest will bring in boat loads of surplus and you can’t have it wasted by lame ducks that will waddle all over it. The stores must be put in order and the records set on the straight and narrow. Rules are tools so press that suit and polish those shoes it’s meeting time.

RAT ~ (Sagittarius) – North

The go between to the world of everything resides with you. Rat is numero uno in the hierarchy of the signs. As such you have greater good than you ever imagined standing on both sides, nearby and it is set to multiply. You will make great gains and strides by identifying with it. The keys to the doorway to heaven are dangling on your fob ring even if you didn’t notice them. The odd and quixotic assertion that doing what you love begets money is actually not a bad idea. Especially when considering you’ve already tried everything else. Your sign has Planet Pluto (fate) squaring off against some heavy hitters. Sticking to the regular grind is not always popular but it is necessary to keep the coffers filled. Your luck stars are ablaze with love and money luck that grows bit by bit, drip by drip and inch by inch. All the while the planets have your sign presiding over jurisprudence to get broken systems up and running. Some of you may find you are straddling a big provision to save bigger interests whilst healing the wounds of a nasty division. Embellish with relish all you love and love to do, all that you would do, if you could do, and when that happens the world will beat a path to your store.

Wild Hare ~ lucky me, lucky you!

This post follows the dashing and daring Full Blue Moon in the sign of the Hare (grace) on August 31th and carries forward to the New Moon on September 15th in the Bird (virtue) sign.

Once in a blue moon sounds so romantic but perhaps only if you like unrequited love stories.

The general theme is that in only this one instance will two or more energies merge and flow like ships passing in the night.

Our blue moon is the lighthouse in the story. Its luminosity is doubled (blue) because it has happened twice this month. This allows enough light for things to see each other and know one another but perhaps only superficially and for a short time. It’s not bright like daytime, this is moonshine “shedding” it’s fullest light.

This can be a great time to transfer data, re-live experiences for new outcomes, to find clues and look for missing parts. Put the pieces of your life and dreams back together. There will be a way to see forward in the dark, the dark being the unknown.

The illumination of this moon brings things, people, objects, places and even nebulous concepts into view. Keep the tissues handy. Being in the sign of the Hare it mixes things up with a high, moral side. Let this blue moon be a harbinger of truth and beauty as a solution to life’s confusion.

Full (yang) moons bring moods, feelings and energetic patterns to a peak or fullness leaving behind high-water marks in our lives whether we see them now or not.

The ball drops and the change-maker brings new shape-shifted realities into play and into being. Things may appear one way but they will actually go another. To predict the unlikely directions of new vitality and get ahead of the game (for success) you’ll need a magic kaleidoscope to express variability.

To follow the leader (dogma) you may walk confident but you’ll likely stroll off the cliff-hanger. What does that mean to moi?

It means to see beyond what is and use your own personal power to project ahead of where you are. This will help you find a groove that leads you in the correct direction.

Going in the correct direction leads to the location of your greatest good, it brings us collectively or individually to a solution or realization. If you stay locked in to your own or other peoples (worn-out) ideas about where to go and/or how to get there you may be on a conveyer belt that leads you in circles going nowhere.

We won’t have this premium level of magnetism running such strong currents all the time. Please use this primal force to extend your connections and grow an olive branch. Use it like overdrive to power up that hill, make that move and blaze that trail. Muster your courage and assert yourself, boldly. This is not blind faith, so keep your eyes wide open.

Like all Hares the hospitality makers will be available along the way to give you a leg up or a furry, foot hold. Though it may not seem like you are supported when you step off into the the wild, blue yonder (the unknown) merging variables and colorful possibilities will unfold a bridge. These concurrences will greet you like a banner waving in the breeze to show you the way.

In a conscious way this moon can enhance our awareness of subtleties. Why subtleties? They are those invisible fibers that lead us to our destiny and for many humans that walk this Earth that is what we are really seeking.

How to harvest subtleties? Well the way I explain it is this, if you want an oak tree you’d better be looking for acorns since oak trees don’t fall fully-grown from the sky. Subtle energy is the nuance akin to a planted seed, poised and ready to break free from it’s dark hole.

This kind of seed is also a clue to finding a next step. The next step brings resonance.

Resonance is when you connect with your universe to cooperate in a larger plan called the divine plan, or life calling. A life calling is an awareness or knowing what moves and motivates us onward. As an anchor it holds us fast to our goals/moorings when we would otherwise give-up and drift away from our challenges.

Why does a plant grow, why do we long to love, why do we hope or hold on? I conjecture that this is a purely a feministic (not feminism) principle steeped in a larger mystery. A mystery that suggests striving (passion) rather than straining (drudgery) to get what you desire. This subtle change will leave you with a lasting impression instead of a stain.

A life calling is simply that. Life calls out to each of us and we either tune in on that vibration or try and stop the noise. We either give-in and follow it’s leaning by allowing “it” to show us and take us completely to what it has to offer us or, as we so often do, we stuff and stifle this noise, we muzzle it. We stop the resonance so we can listen to other voices and other modes of conditioning to find our way in the world.

In extreme cases this becomes a noise sensitivity. Sound is a big concern in the industrial world. My interpretation is that people who have this sensitivity are intent on stopping their own internal type of resonance. They want to conform to and control their world from the outside in and when they can’t the noise starts banging in their heads. They look outside, instead of in.

A good way to know if this is true about yourself is to ask this question, are you trying to take from the world what you want… or are you giving to the world what you’ve got? When you fully shift the paradigm it turns an internal conflict into eternal bliss.

This full, blue Hare moon ignites a transition phase in the seasons of our earthen souls.

A natural change is taking place and yet there is discomfort in leaving the old cocoon, in breaking free of the old skin of the former self. We may feel broken or blown away. But a plant does not grow until it brakes through the bark or soil. The leaves must drop. Without chaos we have no world. In pain there is gain if we look for it and reach for it in the dark like a light switch.

Ancient wisdom and truth (and quantum mechanics, i.e the Pauli Theory) tells us that no two things can occupy the same space in time, it’s a universal law. Such as a shaft falls from the grain leaving the kernel naked and vulnerable we need to know that to be what we want to be, we can’t stay who we are.

When I complete a series of feng shui changes for people (or things) there is always something that breaks or falls apart. This makes way for a new cycle of things to begin. Yes people try to stop it (fear based response) and in so doing lock (closing) in the pain instead of searching (openly) for the gain.

Another reflective and potent mystical saying is, Somethings got to give… In our modern myth and moral story telling this has a classical basis in the iconic and ironic story of Marylin Monroe, figuratively, literally and metaphorically.

“The star system has gotten way out of hand. We’ve let the inmates run the asylum, and they’ve practically destroyed it” was a statement issued by Peter Levathes in 1962 and in reference to artists like Marilyn just before she died. This thinking of ownership couldn’t have been farther from truth or beauty. It seems this story is immortalized from only one side.

In simple terms the movie moguls of the day only tried to get what they wanted by using pressure and subterfuge. In contrast had they allowed themselves to see what they already had and then work with it they would have transcended into new realms.

The mysticism of this compelling story (on and off the set) illustrates the bittersweet and tantalizing opportunities lost by this grind-up, wind-up world. When we push with angst to make something happen or to get what we want, we often never get-it or have-it and in so doing, destroy the very nature of it’s being.

In ancient lore this method is often called “killing the goose.” In the carnage of this mindset we often find some wonder of beauty that was lost, forgotten or misused.

You, me, we – can’t force mother nature.

But once in a blue moon you can coax her out of her shell, when she feels safe, when the water is warm and all the pending agendas are put away. We can skinny dip in the moonlight and be reborn.

Until the next post just let nature (or your nature) run wild and see where she goes, it might genuinely surprise you!

Stars & Signs: posting lucky stars for the Full (yang) Moon (moods) in the Hare (grace) sign up to the new harvest moon in the Bird (virtue) on September 15th. Good luck!

Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose / planetary influences / flying stars: (1) (4) (2) (4-3):

Intermission time. Lean back and lay low, keep your foot off the accelerator petal. Your pending luck stars are tangled in some thorny sticker bushes. You are going from full warp speed to a big show down. Allow things to cool off and take a break before diving in the pool. As temperatures drop air tight seals form around your desires. While this happens spend time listening and then objectifying new opportunities. When you come up from deep water (consciousness) and/or out of a dark space (unconsciousness) there is always an interlude to re-adaption. Stay in the compression chamber a few months to get your bearings before integrating your new ideals into to everyday life.

Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence – Pluto (fate) / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (2-1):

Up early and down late, scheduling has kept you buzzing and humming through this summer of love. Now, finally you will see more channels deliver steady streams of new data to your field of dreams. Or at least one. The trick here is repetition. Once you figure out the how just keep repeating it. Constancy is your lucky charmer. The stars roll in your favor with a wink, wink and a nudge-nudge. You have to blow on the candles to make a wish come true and rub that lamp to get a genii to appear. When summoning a genii be sure to have your request formulated and wait time is nil.

Tiger – aka: Aquarius / planetary influences / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (2-1):

Finding and keeping is the Tiger’s only really soft, tender sentimental side. Once they find what they want they like to have it, and to keep it near. There is a honeymooners tinge to your lucky money stars this month. Use the core concepts of sharing is caring and loving is giving. Show the ones you hold dear, that you like them here. Brandish nothing stronger than a pillow fight or you’ll frighten the children into tears. Sure you can stay tough like a bed of nails. But then no one can lie down and roll around with you in the green, grass of home. Hold your own and let the good times jelly-roll.

Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence – Neptune (harmony) retrograde 6/4 to 11/10, Blue, Full Yang Moon (moods) / flying stars: (3) (6) (4) (6-5):

Blue moon… in the Hare. Lucky in love and wealth stars are all a sizzle with one small caveat. Use them up now, don’t wait. Expiration dates on the luck quotient lose potency quickly. You are currently aligned for maximum frequency of heaven luck and income streams a-plenty. Fortunately for you, you are also naturally gifted at foraging and gathering fruits and nuts at their peak season. Make haste on this work since the tide will pull out this month leaving your ships high and dry. Things may look bleak and bleary. But this is only a short lived condition. By the time you have cleaned off your rosy glasses everything will be crystal clear. Sometimes the water just needs time to settle. Go slow, don’t push the luck stars this month and let things flow.

Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence – Uranus (chaos) retrograde 7/13 to 12/13 / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (7-6):

Stretch out your wings and and rip free from the chains that bind you. You are being tested in new flights of fancy and all you need to do is show up. Life as the dragon knows it, all-to-well, is a messy, scary business. Ye be monsters beyond here is oft the place marker for madness and ends-of-the-world inhabited by the dragon kind. You scratch your head and beyond wonder, why, and how on Earth do people come up with this stuff? But then before you even have time to really ponder, suddenly it dawns on you. All this unmarked and uncharted territory is yours to play in, it belongs to you, it’s your birthright and yours for the taking.

Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (7-6):

Life is going to get sweeter and a newly, exalted position (or tack) you’ve taken is making a bad situation better. Luck stars look thrilling and willing, beyond belief to go the distance. Though to see you now it would not seem so, but strangely enough in the coming weeks a serious legal matter will go favorably for you. Put grist to the mill and apply another turn to the screw. Of course your own special brand of squeezing is legendary but if that fails your venom will paralyze them. The days to your crowning glory are numbered by few. Paupers awaken as a prince or princess in the morrow.

Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence – Jupiter (increase) / flying stars: (9) (3) (1) (3-2):

Feeling your oats is fine and dandy. However this is your best time of the year to beat a retreat. To be fully revived requires an extended, clandestine period. Stars are a funky lot in a mixed bag of what, knots. Things get tangled in brambles when we bite off more than we can chew. Choose your words and then swallow them whole, what’s left unsaid no one will know. If this hand of cards were mine I’d toss them and push back the table. Stockpile your cupboards with fruity delights but don’t burn candles or leave on the light. Hold your horses just a little longer, don’t jump the gun. Rewards will come when your legs are stronger.

Goat – aka: Cancer, sheep, deer / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (5-4):

Bonus social luck brings back a gentler stride and a promotes wanderlust to take you back to a happier time. The peacekeeper and match-maker goat is the new uniform type. You are infinitely bound to the stories of the land so it’s time to stop kidding around! One by one, three billy goat’s gruff usurped a troll that wanted to devour their life.  Like water under the bridge they moved past it to let bygones be gone for good. Climb higher and you’ll find a new, brighter view on your horizon. This month will sparkle and shine be sure to shop and dine. Up next month is a long rest and respite from the intensity of this limelight.

Monkey – aka: Leo, lion / planetary influences: Venus (love & luxe) 9/6 to 10/2 / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (5-4):

Love comes to town and it’s riding a horse upside down. Honey you have some pretty happy, snappy luck coming down your pike. But from the way you see it – it looks miserable, like something the cat dragged in. Out of your “former” fears and tears there is a truth in beauty that you have side-lined, avoided or isolated. Don’t let your fame be a passing fancy. Au contraire …you would be wise to economize. Save your affections for a love (or script) that’s really rare. On stage you are hopping and popping with flirtatious hilarity so let the good time roll, don’t wedge them in.

Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster / planetary influences: New Moon (yin moods) 9/15, Mercury (messenger) 8/31 to 9/16 / flying stars: (7) (1) (8) (1-9):

Oppositions flare-up and thunder roars in the skies of the feathered kind. You are rarefied by these ripe conditions. This is the perfect time to cast out lines and make the ties that bind. Get into a new stride by marching to the drum of a higher mind. The bean counters will merge with the nitpickers to sort out all the details over time. The luck stars are a flyby the seat of your pants airline taking you to a conference in a wilder-nest clime. Hunt and peck to solve the crime. Income luck stays strong and goes long. If not, I suggest abruptly making an about face (all the way around to the other side) and go forward in that direction.

Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence – Saturn (time) / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (9-8):

Super, double bonus luck has doggies barking and baying at the moon. But all this howling is a waste of a very, good vibe. Dog is the Hare’s secret buddy so don’t be afraid to reveal your innermost dreams to a sacred sole. Confide not deride. In so doing you may garner the prize of a new lifetime. Don’t bat an eyelash about crossing your tee’s. The white cross is a legendary symbol of power used to remove all iniquity. Be thou dissolved in preparation for the whole lot-a heaven luck coming your way. Like summer berries you get to pick your own prize.

Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle / planetary influence – Mars (pure energy) enters 8/23 to 10-6 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (9-8):

The lucky pig has a dynamic-duo of star powers wielding fire and brimstone with an exaggerated effect. Below the pyrotechnics is a deep reservoir of constancy and continuity being dredged-up, out of this marshy swamp. Your olfactory senses will lead you to the  destination of your dreams so keep sniffing around the forest. Trust your sensory perceptions above what you see in front of you. Set your whole heart on fire and watch it burn. When you do, it will melt away the dross. The big wheel is turning and you get a shot at the jackpot. Aim high and be mighty at the arc.

Monkey New Moon

Monkey see, monkey do!

This post follows the daring New Moon in the sign of the Monkey on August 17th and carries forward to the Blue Moon 2012 on August 31th.

The lucky blue-moon at month’s end is a full moon in the Hare. Something radical will shake-out of the family tree that drops fertile seeds into super-nutrient rich, pay dirt.

Planet Mercury, now in forward motion has a boomerang effect of the curve (in this timeline) that can hook or bring things back around you thought were long-gone or lost. This is an ideal time to forgive, let live and release worn-out grudges to the waste bin. The summer recess is now in session. This is an essential time to try at being anything than what you already are, just for the sake of the fun-of-it.

Soul play is the theme under this a deep, dark, mystery moon. Let your Sol (spiritos) be your guide as you run off in new directions and find avenues that lead to new expressions. The quirky and underexposed will surface (or bubble up) in stylistic venues of the off and on-beat. Background drums keep a strong, jungle rhythm pumping.

The Monkey’s perky, palette unfolds a wide-ranging design fest of unexpected twists and turns. Primaries in jewel tones and washed-out, sun-baked, colors carpet the runways and by-ways.

Launch your big ships now and take long trips to luxuriate in the finest manner you can muster. The days between the monkey new moon and the full, blue moon in the Hare are a rare opportunity to cultivate happiness long~lasting.

The mojo of the blue-moon can smooth out any dull spots, rough patches or jagged edges of sub-par, luck stars. They can shine-back luck brilliantly beyond what it appears to be when you rub it to a glossy, finish.

Think of summer 2012’s late new moon as a second honeymoon, another chance times two. It works like an automatic, wish factory when your stuff-it with great ideas from inside out. Be original, gather your wits and make self assurance a keystone to success. Monkey signs give ballast to the snakes vulnerable, underbelly while the dragon and the rat get a free-booster ride.

Bask in the glory once your relaxed and well-rested. There is a doubling of all luck this month that gives us a peek at what our luck will be like next year in 2013.

Heed the signs but go ahead and run a little amok, dare to dream and feel alive about whatever floats your boat. The monkey’s colorful, kaleidoscope of creativity will hold sway over the masses. Prepare for an encore performance when you least expect it.

Stars & Signs: posting lucky stars for the New (yin) Moon (moods) in the Monkey (talent) sign, on August 17th to the full (yang), blue moon (moods) in the Hare (grace), August 31st.

Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose / planetary influences / flying stars: (1) (4) (2) (4): Peach blossom luck showers you with wildflowers in summer meadows like a lazy, afternoon dream. Social luck and love charms get whipped into frothy, peaks of curiosity. Politic all you want since you will be heard and well received. Everything is doubled. These days are dawning with bright blue skies on the horizon so feel free to make the utmost of them. Things may turn out, round much better than you first think, just believe in it!

Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence – Pluto (fate) / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (2): Stay elated away from the summer parades and charades. Things can get a little tense and over stimuated in your minds eye with too much clutter. The luck stars are uneasy and a bit queasy. You may feel seasick even on terra firma. Use time-out wisely and don’t run yourself aground going in circles or you’ll blank-out. Be quiet and well reserved and the stress and drain of soggy luck stars will soon pass almost unnoticed.

Tiger – aka: Aquarius / planetary influences / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (2): You’ve been chasing after your tail and its getting a tad dizzying and tattered. There is no need to continue on a course littered with potholes and uneven terrain. Camp out on a favorite bench and keep out of the hot, mid-day sun. While away the days in a cool, restorative vacation mode to overcome a batch of tough-luck stars. You’ve got to get that big, tiger pout, out. Take it to the cave and stick-it there until you emerge reborn.

Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence – Neptune (harmony) retrograde 6/4 to 11/10 / flying stars: (3) (6) (4) (6): Christen the maiden voyage of some super, lucky stars on board a honeymoon suite of dreams. Sunny breezes lead to fabulous ports of call!! Love and luck are conspiring in your favor to deliver loads of unexpected good fortune and luscious booty, galore. Let the games begin and join in the fun for everyone with super, love luck, long-lasting. Treasure arrives as a dynamic duo, set, matched and pre-arranged.

Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence – Uranus (chaos) retrograde 7/13 to 12/13 / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (7): This is Funk Zone central, ello, ello, get the lead-out. A crack, demo team is at the front door. Everything goes and then it arrives somewhere else so only take what you know you must and don’t keep anything else. PLEASE be willing to part with some of the lessor items. The bulldozer will not stop while you gather your lilies or look for your glasses. Go now and keep moving. Cut back the brambles and get rambling, on.

Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (7): Cordon off the area, yellow caution tape is advised. Carry a few spare rolls of it to be on the safe side. The more you shrink the less you will chafe on these ruggedly, sharp stars that spur you on. Use all your powers of observation, carry your best amulets and don’t leave the cat out. Secure a safe haven and stay locked up in your own world until the bog disppears. Be inventive, be clear and be a legal Beagle. Bite down hard on any deceivers or be short, shrift-ed. Just cut-to-the check please.

Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence – Jupiter (increase) and Venus (love) / flying stars: (9) (3) (1) (3): Shut down the whole rumor mill and hold off on any big ideas until the surprise inspection is over. This area is going through a transition phase and will only be functioning at the barest of minimums while tests are conducted and results revealed. Shut down non-essentials now and tie down any loose ends. Don’t let any thing dangle, drag or get tangled in the mind. Words can bind like barbs of wire so stay well, inside your boundaries.

Goat – aka: Cancer, sheep, deer / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (5): Raise the white flag and give up now while there is still a chance. Don’t take a stand or make any waves just go with the flow. The luck stars are knocking about hard and crashing like breakers on a rocky shore. You’d best wear a hard hat at all times. Trust me you’ll need it in this construction zone. Don’t get into it, get out of it. There’s a rainbow at the back of this storm but for now I’d batten down the hatches. Mums the word and all.

Monkey – aka: Leo, lion / planetary influences: Mercury (messenger): New Yin Moon (moods) / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (5): Luck stars look testy and Topsy-turvy. I trust you’ll keep that in mind while you swash and buckle your way around the world of a affairs. Summers drama-rama is in top shape and full tilt.  There is no room to compromise, so don’t mess-up between the lines. Stay and do the thing, and be the one. Then you’ll see the reward …but never before the good deed is done. Blow hard and go long to unravel this ball of yarn.

Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster / planetary influences / flying stars: (7) (1) (8) (1): Get your lucky, winning tickets here!! The bird has got rock, solid-golden luck stars that gleam brightly and make streams of income appear. It’s like a super luck sandwich. Fresh-baked, infinity luck is buttered in love luck and stacked with garden miracles and money greens drizzled with saucy wishes and sprinkled with dreams-come-true and then topped with another layer of fresh-baked, infinity luck! Take your best shot, you got it, I promise!

Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence – Saturn (time), Mars (energy) / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (9): It’s a melting pot of sticky, tricky business. These lucks stars have silver linings and pearl encrusted interiors but you’ll need a blow torch and a crow bar to cut a path to the center where all the goodies are stashed. It’s not always easy to see what you’ve got til it’s gone. And once it’s gone, let it go- and then the new cash reserves will flow. The wheel is turning and if you don’t like it on one side get on over to the other, don’t wait. Act now, on Que = you.

Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle / planetary influence – Mars (pure energy) enters 8/23 to 10-6 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (9): Keep your skids greased and your eyes peeled, and you’ll catch a fly-ball right outta left field. But watch-out, down below, there’s fire in the hole! Shield’s up or you’ll burn, baby burn. Take the offensive, no defenses. These luck stars are branded with a keen edge on a thick hide. Your best bet is to walk the coals shaman-like to the other side. Lucky stars form a magnetic field ripe with opportunities you can take to the bank once you harness the big, beast. It’s a high wire act of great distinction so carry a spare pair of fish nets in case you need’um. Joy is a super-natural, power for good and is highly contagious, use-it, don’t lose it.
