Robin's Zodiac Zone June 24th-30th, 2018: Capricorn Full Moon

Sunday: This first full week of summer includes Full Moon in Capricorn overnight Wednesday/Thursday. For a few days surrounding Full Moon, the energy tends to be high and intense. Our bodies and minds may respond in extremes that either mimic or contrast the presence of Full Moon, so you could be low and tired out or unable to relax and shut down. Many people say their sleep pattern changes during Full Moons. This one is the first of summer season and it'll be in Capricorn as it always* (with rare exception) is during Cancer season. After this Full Moon we'll have 3 consecutive New, Full, New Moons with eclipses. We are moving into a very eventful season both internally and externally, emotionally, interpersonally and universally. The eclipses will bring rapid changes, peaks and crossroads we can never turn back from. The reality is, we never really can turn back. Even when you do feel you're moving toward something or someone from your past, it is new and different. All things change. Now for Sunday's highlights.

Scorpio Moon in harmony with Mercury and Pluto for meaningful conversations. It's a harmonious day to have that talk that intimidates you. The search for depth and meaning includes going beyond superficial relationships and also moving into clearer, more compassionate  places within ourselves. Family meetings may be due or perhaps it's time for a phone call to Mom, Dad or other family that you've been procrastinating about. Void of course Moon begins at 10 am. Shopping is better done another day. Today's color is Indigo.

Monday: Sagittarius Moon arrives at 12:29 am EDT and the Moon lines up with Mars in Aquarius for inspiration, unique ideas, dynamic collaborations, travels and the feeling of being 'on a mission'. Gather with people to solve problems, provide good will and actively engage in community. Do what's good for the world and/or support others who do so. Today's color is Red.

Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon. Sag's element is fire and fire is also upward rising energy like our ascent to the earthy Full Moon. The Moon aligns with Venus in Leo for outgoing and adventurous attitudes plus a 'get going' momentum. Find some joy in the tasks that must be done. It's a great day for mind opening learning and enlightenment from books, studies, conferences and any educational setting that really stimulates. It's a terrible day to have to sit and be bored. That kind of learning may be tedious. We need lots of creative, dynamic, colorful energy around us to feel engaged today. Long void of course Moon begins at 8:53 am EDT as the Moon squares Neptune. The changeable nature of the two mutable signs and a void Moon makes the rest of the day kind of uncertain, spontaneous, or loose. Fixed plans may need to change, and we must be versatile and willing. Letting go is a Full Moon theme and the Full Moon is almost here. Mars also moves retrograde spending extra time in Aquarius this year. Some people will do rash or unexpected things while under stress this week, and Mars can play a part. That Moon ain't kidding, and for many things even difficult things, it's just time.
Be kind to yourself. Today's color is Purple.

Wednesday: Mars is retrograde in Aquarius and the Moon moves to Full Moon mode, in Capricorn from 11:52 am EDT. The Sun opposes Saturn in Cancer/Capricorn, the signs of the Full Moon. And the Moon meets Saturn, making it clear that choice must be made. It might be something about family and home life balancing with career or other responsibilities. It might be about getting past your insecurities and no longer being held back. Saturn says do it like you mean it and put a plan in place and some structure to get you there. You might think of this Full Moon time as a bridge crossing over water. The bridge is Capricorn, the water is Cancer. Emotions long held may be challenging to let go of, but you must cross or be held on one side unable to move.  This is your Full Moon to act courageously in service of your self. Today's color is Yellow.

Thursday: Capricorn Full Moon is exact at 12:53 am EDT. Feel some clarity. Be willing to let go and revise if the information and reason becomes clear. Re-read the whole week of forecast as all is relevant to how this Moon time plays out. And we move into eclipse season so the action continues, both within and externally. It's a summer of enormous shifts, leaps and bounds. The Moon aligns with Jupiter and Neptune both in water signs. These are fortunate and easygoing aspects that may soothe the soul by evening. Some things will resolve, end and reach completion and no matter how hard there will be sighs of relief. Today's color is White.

Friday: Mercury moves to Leo for optimism and brightness, ideas and creative projects and pursuits. Find the fun and follow the music! It's a fabulous time to be immersed in exciting learning whether it's dance, design, or medicine. Notice what lights your inner fire and feels like potential. Void Moon in Capricorn starts at 4:58 am EDT and lasts nearly 8 hours. Moon meets Pluto. Experience beauty through the 5 senses and if you can, build in some vacation time. It's a great day to head to summer camp or another place where you'll connect with both old friends and future friends. Today's color is Gold.

Saturday: Aquarius Moon time begins at 12:37 am EDT and a shift occurs. If the Full Moon brought you down or increased your worries, Aquarius Moon and Mercury now in Leo draw you toward people, socializing, and things of high interest. The Full Moon feeling might linger a bit in certain ways though as we have two squares to Pluto, planet of the subconscious stimulating whatever lives deep inside. Some difficult or emotional conversations may occur, but Aquarius Moon helps with detachment and a sense of logic. The Moon meets Mars for strong conviction and a need for loyalty. Let others know if you're on their side, backing up as needed. Today's color is Turquoise.

Robin's Zodiac Zone June 17th-23rd, 2018

Sunday: Leo Moon (the sign of fathers!) straightforward until 11:28 pm EDT then void of course until 4:41 am EDT. Moon and Sun align and Moon square to Jupiter. It's a day to enjoy people and to shine! It's a day to stay out of frustration over what you cannot control. Everything in it's own time. Today's color is Orange.

Monday: Virgo Moon from 4:41 am EDT on, in harmony with Saturn and Pluto. Honest dealings, honesty with yourself, and sane, well thought out decisions are likely. Neptune begins a retrograde in Pisces which may loosen up false expectations or ideas to be let go of. Today's color is Brown.

Tuesday: Virgo Moon. Several harmonious aspects and Mercury aligns with Jupiter for making peace with feelings and emotions. This aspect may also help with a financial/legal/business matter where parties need to come to terms. Today's color is Indigo.

Wednesday: From 6:51 am to 8:29 am EDT the Moon is void of course in Virgo. Libra Moon moves in for fair, equal, and balanced considerations and decision making. Mercury and Neptune in Cancer/Pisces fuel imaginative ideas and creations.  Today's color is Light Blue.

Thursday: Libra Moon, and at 6:07 am EDT the Sun moves to Cancer. This is the Solstice, the beginning of true summer. And much will be in the works today with things to be negotiated, compromised on and initiated. The Moon is between new and full on this longest daylight day and night. Venus is opposite Mars in Leo/Aquarius, the signs of 2 of 3 summer eclipses. Relationship issues, decisions and emotions heat up and may simmer until those eclipses or come to peaks now, meaning a turn of events, a change of course, a decision to go forward or move apart. Void Moon 9:34 pm EDT until Friday at 3:11 pm EDT. An ungrounded or confusing night is likely. Or perhaps you will just feel very relaxed and nonchalant. Today's color is White.

Friday: The Moon is void of course until 3:11 pm EDT and like last night's forecast, this may create a relaxed, casual feeling/atmosphere or a very undecided, anxious or forgetful time. Do what you can to ground, get your feet on the earth literally or in the water. Don't allow your head to fill with unnecessary overthinking, and check your calendar and other details so you do what you need to do. Scorpio Moon from 3:11 pm into the weekend, opposing Uranus in Taurus. Loyalty must be prioritized.  Today's color is Black.

Saturday: Scorpio Moon with various aspects while the Sun aligns with Uranus and Mercury opposes Pluto. The sign Cancer, where the Sun is, indicates family and home related changes and decisions. Water and earth sign energy remind us of where our roots are as well as the land we inhabit now. And there will be changes for some, in terms of home life and living arrangements. Some will be out of their comfort zone. If you feel stability and support, acknowledge what you have. Today's color is Blue.

Tuesday: Gemini Moon times starts at 2:53 am EDT and Mercury changes signs at 4 pm EDT. Changes of opinion and plans are likely. Uncertain, wobbly or indecisive feelings may occur. Take your time. Today's color is Yellow.

Wednesday: New Moon in Gemini, and with eclipse season and Mercury retrograde on the way in July, this New Moon is prime for initiating changes and moving into a new phase you've been planning for. Act on opportunities, make new connections, and feel the expressiveness that comes as Venus shifts to Leo. The arts and events benefit from the Venus in Leo weeks that begin today. Channel your inner artist, performer, and playful spirit. Shop for clothes, books and recreational goods. Mercury and Uranus align for news, especially family news. The Moon is void of course from New Moon time on (3:43 pm EDT).

Friday: Cancer Moon void of course from 12:18 pm EDT to 3:21 am on Saturday. Moon in harmony with Neptune and Jupiter in the water signs and opposite Pluto. Mercury is opposite Saturn. Look to make agreements and settle any kind of deal before 12:18 pm (adjust to your time zone). Feelings come up and it's likely we'll voice them. Some of this may come as a surprise, yet it holds weight and, very likely, truth. Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Leo Moon for the weekend including Father's Day on Sunday in the USA. Today the Moon meets Venus for lavish and joyful celebrations and events. Dress for the occasion. Moon opposes Mars in Aquarius, and the people who surround us are very important influences as to how things unfold. The power of attraction, including romantic attraction, is strong.
