Last but not least of the twelve Chinese Animals, the smart and friendly Pig closes the cycle, rounding up all the good fortune and opportunities that the cycle has to offer.
This time the PIG is associated with the EARTH ELEMENT (there are five in Chinese Astrology).
This is therefore the last Earth Element Animal before the switch to the next twelve years Element, Metal, in 2020. Each Element lasts in fact for twelve years and is in turn associated with each of the Twelve Animals.
A sense of humor, kindness and peace making abilities will help many of us to have a fortunate and joyous year. As the saying goes: ‘Anyone can go to Heaven. Just be good!’

The Waxing Moon transits Aries from January 22 to 25, during the Pisces Crescent Moon Phase

'Joan of Arc' by Odilon Redon

‘Joan of Arc’ by Odilon Redon

ARIES, Moon of initiative and action
Energetic and fiery

The WAXING MOON TRANSITS PISCES from January 20, 7.26 am,
to January 22, 5.26 pm, with the ingress into ARIES

Suitable energy for taking on challenges, participating in competitions, performing daring feats, arduous exercises, physical work, to begin new ventures, or to perform action for its own sake. Purchase of sporting gear, protective gear, hats, tools, stoves, firewood, machinery, cars, bikes, leather objects. The mood is decisive, enterprising, impulsive, militant, spirited, visionary. Honest, direct expression of feelings, strong instinct, but somewhat insensitive. Beware of emotional extremes, head strong, bossy, uncompromising attitudes, lack of empathy, antagonism, aggression, selfishness.

*** In the garden Aries is traditionally considered too hot, dry and barren for growing anything. Its energy is very suitable instead for cultivating, general maintenance, pruning, pest control, weeding, and harvesting. Plants sown with the Moon in Aries will soon go to seed, due to this Sign’s notorious impatience. Suitable only for early crops.

*** Healing Herbs: Burdock, Gotu Kola, Red Clover.

A note: the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.

Crescent MoonCrescent Moon Animation

The PISCES CRESCENT MOON PHASE begins on January 21, 2.45 pm,
and ends on January 25, 9.20 am, with the  TAURUS FIRST QUARTER MOON PHASE

The Crescent Moon occurs half way through the first week of the Waxing cycle, when the Moon is transiting 45 degrees ahead of the Sun and looks like a beautiful crescent in the western sky after sunset. Psychologically this is an enthusiastic time, in which lots of ideas crowd our mind and we may feel that the sky is the limit. It is a slightly naïve Moon time, but also one full of hopes and dreams (the bright crescent shows now the shadowy sphere of the future Full Moon. The energy of the Moon however needs maturing at this stage and grounding. The first difficulties may appear, the first chinks in the armor; but the challenge is not strong enough yet for us to build up on it.

*** In the garden this is an excellent growing time: everything can go in now, but in particular leafy vegetables and all plants that we grow for their above the ground parts, but only when the Moon is transiting through the very fertile Water Signs or the productive Signs Taurus, Libra and Capricorn.
