Robin's Zodiac Zone November 19th to 26th, 2017

Sunday: Sagittarius Moon square Neptune. Mars in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn. Coping with feelings and finding agreement may be difficult. Purple is today's color.

Monday: Moon meets both Mercury and Saturn in Sagittarius. Decisions. Communicate clearly. Void of course Moon 7:26 pm to 2:14 am EST. Yellow is today's color.

Tuesday: Capricorn Moon and the final hours of Sun in Scorpio. Moon aligns with Jupiter and Venus in harmony with Pluto. Capricorn and Scorpio energies are strong. We may detach in emotional situations. That can be helpful at times. Step into a productive mode and separate from drama and the effects of other people's moods or negativity.  Sun to Sagittarius at 10:06 pm EST. Black is today's color.

Wednesday: Capricorn Moon meets Pluto and interacts with 3 other planets. We'll feel best getting things done. Fairness is a theme. Aim for balanced interactions that are just. Neptune stations direct in Pisces. Today's color is Blue.

Thursday: From 5:33 am to 3:14 pm EST, the Moon is void of course in Capricorn. Plans may need adjustment as Uranus makes the final aspect to Capricorn Moon. Flexibility is called for. The Moon shifts to Aquarius at 3:14 or your adjusted time, and is in harmony with the Sun for gatherings and road trips or travels.  Silver is today's color.

Friday: Aquarius Moon squares Jupiter in Scorpio. Persistence and focus. Sharp sense and intellect. Today's color is Turquoise.

Saturday: Aquarius Moon. The void of course time begins at 9:07 pm EST. The Moon is mostly in harmony with the variety of planets aspected today. Mercury aligns with Uranus in fire signs so plans and needs may change quickly. Inventive thinking is favored and we may become inspired with ideas or energy. Today's color is Purple (I like amethyst crystal for today).

For Sagittarius time, I diffuse Wild Orange and Clove as well as use them topically. Cheer is a great fire sign blend you can use in roller form and take with you everywhere for a quick, easy application and shift. Wild Orange is gently inspiring and a mood booster. Clove is strong so if you ingest it at all, be aware it's 'hot'. A toothpick dipped in Clove may be enough to add to food/drink/toothpaste. I also like Clove for Capricorn (Moon, Sun or personality). It cleans the teeth and invigorates gums. Teeth are ruled by Capricorn.

Scorpio New Moon Saturday, November 18th, 2017

Hello everyone!

November's New Moon is at 6:42 am EST on Saturday the 18th is at 26 degrees of Scorpio. The sabian symbol for this degree is "Indians making camp in new territory". Themes of settling into unfamiliar settings and circumstances and becoming acclimated and resourceful in different surroundings arise with New Moon. 

Committing, rooting and grounding are implied. This may be about hunkering down for winter and making sure you have enough of what you need both physically and spiritually and emotionally. What is this new territory you'll be adapting to? Moving in with a significant other, going out on your own, reestablishing yourself where you are, in a different way? 

Native peoples lived close to the earth and respected the land and the other resources of their natural environment. Environmental concerns and new awareness and movements related to climate change and the earth will have renewed attention as the impacts become more clear. 

Scorpio is the sign of sexuality, reproductive health, mystery, intuition and finance. Everything Scorpio has certain weight, depth, and complexity. To move effectively with Scorpio New Moon, one must be consistent and willing and, when that is so, great transformation is possible. If you need to make a significant and challenging change in your life, letting go of a strongly implanted feeling, experience, or idea, this New Moon time offers an opportunity to move into that new 'camp', and to stay a while until your next move or release becomes clear, until you're strong and solid on the inside, having learned respect for self, others and the earth and having built up energy and inner fire from which you will recreate your life. 

On the other hand, if life is in pretty good shape, yet you feel restless or bored, it's time to experiment, shake things up a little, and step into places or situations that stimulate your creativity and allow you to see what else there is to be discovered. For many, the New Moon can bring a more spiritual perspective, encouraging belief and even offering proof of things that cannot be seen or quantified easily. 

Go beyond the literal. There are treasures to be found both within and externally. There are healers and there is healing beyond what you've known. See the signs, listen, tune in, and follow a hunch.

Scorpio: Release any limiting beliefs, especially about your self and your relationship, and act on 
opportunities
Sagittarius: Tune in to intuition and spiritual guidance. Slow down and spend time in natural environments and slightly outside your comfort zone.
Capricorn: Assess your friendships and all with social context. You may find yourself in a new group or community that better supports you.
Aquarius: Step up to new career challenges and opportunities. Breakthroughs in your professional life and new talents or levels of mastery are possible.
Pisces: Look to the symbolism of "Indians setting up camp in a new territory". There are philosophical, educational and other expansions as you move into unfamiliar situations or reconstruct with new ideas.
Aries:  You're presented with opportunities for healing, feeling more financially stable, and more physically or emotionally well. Find some peace around grudges or partnership issues so you can move on.
Taurus: Co-create and arrive at decisions with or relative to a significant other. Roles and relationships are set to transform to be healthier, more authentic and without conditions.
Gemini: Reconsider your routines and how you take care of yourself. Explore natural and healthy routines, supplements, and 'exercises'. Meditation, better sleep, and predictable routines are examples.
Cancer: Love well. Your new ground is established through your relationships and creative pursuits.
Leo: Find yourself at home or returning to your roots yet discovering something new. Family relationships are implied as well as the land/earth/place itself. 
Virgo: Write, draw, express deep feelings as an exercise in releasing old perceptions, wounds, and limiting beliefs. New learning and connections are in your midst once the clutter clears.
Libra: Finances and employment are implied. You may accept work or shift your saving, spending and earning habits. You may let go of possessions no longer useful or meaningful while acquiring or saving for something with greater value. 

Essential oils are supportive in so many ways. Frankincense to the crown and third eye chakras feel right for this New Moon. Clary Sage, an oil related to hormone balance and the female reproductive system, is one of the oils I associate with Scorpio. Avoid this oil if you are or could be pregnant. It comes in roller form which many of my friends enjoy and recommend. Clary is also an ingredient in the Peace blend, which I personally love and relate to the water signs. See all the oils and browse at www.mydoterra.com/robinivypayton

I'm happy to respond if you have questions or are interested in a wholesale or wellness advocate account with doTERRA. We love the oils, and they are part of our routine at my house. Currently diffusing and loving Clove oil (which also can brighten your teeth!).

Friday, December 1st join me at Willard Beach Studio 3-4:30 or attend Intro to Essential Oils with Maura Reminga and Yara Perez that evening to learn more. Link to workshops at Willard Beach Studio

All the best during New Moon and Thanksgiving week!

Full Moon in Taurus November 3/4, 2017

Taurus Full Moon arrives at 1:23 am on November 4th, one day before we turn the clocks back here in the northeast. The animals prepare for the cold season, and we experience even less daylight beginning this weekend. As the animals gather and prepare their homes, we too prepare our homes for both the celebrations and stormy weather winter may bring.

Taurus is the sign of prosperity and abundance, finances, comfort and stability. The most sensual of the earth signs, this Taurus Moon is  influenced by Neptune while Venus, planet of love is a potent force across from Uranus at the time of Full Moon. Experiences of romance, imagination, creativity and beauty are accentuated. Neptune also relates to spirituality and ability to believe what you cannot see. Metaphysical experiences could increase this week and through the weekend. It's a powerful time for meditation or renewing any practice that takes your focus from the external world, chaos and pressure.

Taurus Moon and Scorpio Sun oppose in the most stubborn, persevering, and relentless of signs. What goes on will be huge, passionate, and extensive. Changes made will take strong hold and show long term promise and results.  Knowing this, take your own word and actions very seriously. It'll be difficult to reverse your position or alter the course later on.

Venus opposite Uranus means surprise developments in relationships and perhaps in matters of justice, law, and judgement.  Venus is harmonious, reflecting and highlighting Libra qualities and values. Uranus is volatile, out of bounds and original.  You may find it hard to believe or process the changes or decisions some people make a bout their relationships and partnership life.  Saturn and Venus also align and point to freedom and responsibilities of being in partnerships. Some of this will need to be renegotiated during Full Moon time.

Aries: Abundance and partnership
Taurus: Individuality and routines
Gemini: Inner focus and Health. Changes among friends.
Cancer: Allies and Romance. Career/Home activity.
Leo: Career, Recognition, and Learning/Communicating
Virgo: Travel and Education, Philosophies of Life & Spirituality
Libra: Marriage and Commitments, Health and Routines
Scorpio: Marriage and Commitments, Broadening Perspective
Sagittarius: Routines and Health, Love and Friendship, also attention to pets
Capricorn: Love and Creativity, Home and Career
Aquarius: Family, Recognition and Honors, Friends and Love life
Pisces: Money, Windfalls or Expenses, and Communication including sibling relationships

Essential Oils I suggest for this Full Moon include Frankincense which is so aligned to the sign Taurus. Sensual and a luxury, Frankincense has many benefits and qualities you can benefit from and it's wondrous to take in aromatically or on your skin. I also like Rosemary or any of the woodsy oils like Fir or Spruce for this earth sign Moon.

Stay grounded and enjoy the senses during Taurus Moon. Notice in which ways you are resourceful, abundant and loved.

Peace & Prosperity!
Robin
