According to my friends the crones, a black moon is when two new moons occur in the same month (and never in February). The black moon is only visible during the day and an omen for change and hidden thruths to be brought to the surface. OO LA LA.
Today, Friday, Jan. 31, between 30 to 45-minutes after local sunset it could be possible to see a super-slender crescent moon near two planets, Neptune and Mercury. I say “possible” because both will be very close to the sun and could be washed out in the glare of sunset, or covered today with some needed rain clouds.
Today also begins the Chinese Year of the Wood Horse. What a day!
This is from my friends at Tarot.com. Love them.
“Horse years place great emphasis on hard work and tenacity. 2014 could present fantastic opportunities for business, travel and adventure, but these things will require decisive action.
The Wood Horse Year favors anyone who shares information with energy and enthusiasm and prizes ethics above all things. Dishonesty and injustice may backfire spectacularly this Chinese New Year. The forthright Horse does not reward those who achieve their goals through underhanded methods.
The Wood element is ambitious, assertive and heroic. By aiming high this Chinese New Year, you can achieve much more than you ever dreamed. Settling for second best and sitting on the sidelines may result in terrible disappointment.
In a Wood year, you’ll fare better by working to improve your life, rather than trying to maintain the status quo. Demand more from your romantic partner, and don’t tolerate shoddy behavior.
Horse years are wonderful times to expand horizons, explore unfamiliar territory and get plenty of mental stimulation. If you’ve been thinking about taking or teaching a class, this would be a wonderful time to do so. Learning a foreign language and mastering a musical instrument are also favored activities in 2014. Beware of biting off more than you can chew, however, because Horse years can prompt people to overestimate their abilities.
Publishing houses and media enterprises could also turn handsome profits. (WOOT WOOT COOKBOOK!!) After a prolonged slump, fashion lines may see a dramatic improvement.
If you want to increase your chances of getting a good job during a Wood Horse year, adopt an optimistic outlook. Those who are decisive, imaginative, compassionate and idealistic will fare very well in 2014. Learning to turn anger into kindness can attract better job offers. A positive attitude is more important than impressive skill sets during The Year of the Horse.”
