Robin's Zodiac Zone March 23rd to 29th, 2017

This Saturday is New Moon Yoga with Live Drumming at Greener Postures in South Portland. Todd Glacy will play live during this warrior and hero themed practice. 1:30-3:30 pm

Thursday: Aquarius Moon compatible with Venus and the Sun in Aries. Think new and different. Approach a relationship or group meeting with fresh ideas and perspective.  Don't assume nothing has changed. The Moon and Mars are square in fixed signs for long term implications of what we do today. Mercury is square to Pluto, and that could make you overthink or feel anxious.  Be truthful with yourself and do not challenge those in authority unless you are very confident in the outcome. Today's color is Turquoise.

Friday: Mercury opposes Jupiter as the Aquarius Moon aligns with that same planet. Mercury and uranus are in harmony with the Moon. There are qualities of quickness and vastness at work. Things happen fast and in larger than life ways. Surprises occur on days like this. Aim for agreement and get out of stubborn patterns or disagreements. Where there's will, there are ways. Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Void Moon 1:56 to 6:06 am and then Moon to Pisces. Careful in those wee hours. Sun and Venus together are hopeful, sexy, energetic and exciting. It's a good day for a date or any sort of new adventure or experience.  Orange is today's color.

Sunday: Pisces Moon sextile to Mars in Taurus and in conjunction with Neptune. Love, romance, sensitivity and versatility result. Mercury meets Uranus for wild ideas and exciting interactions. Do be intentional with words and keep tempers in check. New Moon is tomorrow, so examine your motivations and plan for next moves now.  Today's color is Pink.

Monday: Pisces Moon void of course 6:19 to 10:11 am EDT. Those hours may be confusing or spacey. Where do you need to be then? Set your alarm or write yourself a prominent note rather than miss something.  Mars meets Neptune in Pisces for dynamic art and enhanced imagination. Create something stunning.  New Moon is 10:57 pm EDT, 7:57 pm Pacific. It's a big New Moon for courageous and brave moves. This is truly like a new year. Resolve to act on your strongest will and passions. Be heroic, even for yourself. Red is today's color.

Tuesday: New Moon energy fills the day. Act even in the face of fear as Moon squares Pluto or the face of opposition as Jupiter is across in Libra. This is a good day for compromises and getting past something you consider a road block. Fairness is essential. Tonight, as things move fast use extra care and strong instincts. Wear White today.

Wednesday: Void Moon 8:07 am to 11:48 am EDT. Take care of routine tasks. Surprising news could take over the early hours after Moon met Uranus and Mercury during the night and early morning. Saturn aligns with the Moon and with Mercury for serious solutions and important discussions or documents today. Taurus Moon for agreements that not only last but will be very difficult to change or break later.  Know what you're doing. Keep your promises. Today's color is Yellow.

Thursday: Scorpio Moon in harmony with Neptune. Today is best spent with creative projects and ideas. Use visualization and imagination to create in the present or pave the way for what's ahead. Be persistent and gentle at the same time. Feelings count, so treat others with care.  Light Blue is today's color.

Friday: Moon aligns with Pluto and the Sun. Decide with confidence. Deal with a fear in productive ways. Move past something that's been holding you back. The Sun and Saturn square and life direction may cause strain and feel like a big issue. Yet, some things will happen more easily than expected. Don't bother forcing things or trying to tell someone what to do. There will be resistance where there's excessive pressure. Agreements can be worked out as long as freedoms are not being recklessly taken away or infringed upon. It's St Patrick's Day but it doesn't really look like a 'party day". Void Moon is 5:56 to 11:00 pm EDT. Watch out for your friends and your belongings since things could get 'carried away' then. Sagittarius Moon begins at 11 pm on the east coast. Purple is today's color.

Saturday: Mercury and Venus meet in Aries. Sparks fly, Instant connections are made. Both planets harmonize with the sagittarius Moon. Take a chance on someone (safely of course). Have an adventure. Meet new people. Lighten responsibilities or feelings surrounding them. The Moon squares Neptune. Be careful not to let escapism ruin good fun. Honor the limits that make sense. Today's color is Red.

Sunday: Sagittarius Moon harmony with Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries. We're likely to do things up big. There's a wild streak and a tendency to be excessive today. Some of us could feel anxious or need reassurance especially with quickly changing circumstances. Wear the color Turquoise and keep moderation in mind.

Monday: At 6:29 am the Sun moves to Aries and spring begins! It's 4th quarter Moon, void of course from  6:37 to 11: 21 am EDT before the quarter marker at 11:58 am EDT. Adjust to your time zone. It's a time of sorting and shedding and making way for the new. Moon meets Saturn for serious and potentially hard choices. Capricorn Moon sets in and squares the Sun in Aries. Power, authority and courage are themes. Warrior New Moon is on the 27th, Monday. This week determine what you are willing to stand up for and what's non negotiable, for examples. Today's color is White.

Tuesday: Capricorn Moon is for getting priorities taken care of and resolved. Take care with communicating well and with anything that would affect personal relationships as the Moon squares Mercury and Venus. Avoid being impulsive with statements and in conversations or disagreements for example. Be tactful. Neptune and Mars support the Moon with a balance of creative sensibility and willingness to act. Today's color is Green.

Wednesday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon, void of course from 9:20 to 10:28 am EDT. Act with purpose and strong intention especially once Aquarius Moon sets in at 10:28 EDT. It's an inventive, forward thinking sign. If possible, get out of the Capricorn Moon zone before making long term decisions or experimenting with something new. That is especially true if what you're doing could make 'waves' with others.  The more today is a team effort, the better.  Today's color is Silver.

New Moon is Monday March 27th, and we'll get the body and spirit fully prepared and energized at Greener Postures South Portland. New Moon of the Warrior with Live Drumming and Gong by Todd Glacy on Saturday March 25th 1:30-3:30 pm. Find the workshop registration at Greener Postures Yoga or sign up in either studio.

Saturday: Virgo Moon opposes Neptune in Pisces. Themes of the recent Pisces solar eclipse may be evident. Changes move to the next level. Honesty and compassion are thematic, one extreme or the other. Question or use caution on what your intuition says is not quite right.

In the wake of two February eclipses, this is a month of change and adjustment.

Thursday: Taurus Moon begins 2:43 am ET. Strong willed and influenced by imaginative Neptune and communicative Mercury. It's a great day to hunker down with a writing project. Write a speech or a book, craft the logic around an advertising pitch, or rehearse anything from a conversation to a performance. As Jupiter opposes Uranus, we could be rattled by news. Think moderate and give yourself time to think before responding or reacting.  Aries and Libra, that opposition is in your sign and may be felt in relationship. Today's color is Yellow.

Friday: Taurus Moon aligns with Pisces Sun and Pluto in Capricorn. Void of course Moon begins at 10:20 am. It's a good day for most things, though during void of course Moon pause to make sure of your decisions and especially your purchases. Look for value over time and for quality, and invest accordingly. Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Venus retrograde begins. In relationships, you may notice a return to anything unresolved. People may come back into your life or get back in touch.  These weeks are not recommended for cosmetic surgery or tattoos or other changes in appearance. Remember,' it's a wise person who rules the stars and a food who's ruled by them' and make your decisions accordingly. Venus is direct on April 15th. This period is uncertain for starting new romantic relationships though certainly I wouldn't rule that out if you're attracted. Be adaptable with forming relationships, in other words keep the expectations light and easy. At 5:05 am ET the Moon moves to Gemini for a social Saturday. Mercury and Neptune meet in Pisces for artists, intuition, and going with the flow.  Today's color is Pink.

Sunday: Gemini Moon with many aspects to planets and the Sun. Mars trine Saturn. Agreements and negotiations are worth time and effort. Even difficult subjects can be worked through with willing participation. Do put action behind your words and be on the lookout for those who are all talk. Today's color is Gold.

Monday: From 3:22 to 7:54 am ET, the Moon is void of course in Gemini. So if that's wake up and go time for you, make sure you remember appointments and items you need for the day. It's a forgetful time. Double check the alarm and other similar things. The morning could seem out of sorts or moody even as Cancer Moon arrives at 7:54 am. The Sun meets Mercury for an important business and news day. Business may be more personal. Sometimes Cancer Moon time leads to defensive and protective feelings and actions.  Today's color is White.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon with lots of activity and aspects. Challenges include fair decision making, protecting others and your own best interests, and facing fears and emotions.  On the plus side, creativity shines. Mercury and Pluto are aligning overnight, and this can be good for decisions, problem solving and intimate talks. Today's color is Light Blue.

Wednesday: See Mercury and Pluto info above ^. Discuss topics with sensitivity and willingness today. From 9:59 to 11:45 am ET, the Moon is void of course.  Cancer Moon squares Mars in Aries and conflicts of interest are evident and come up for resolution. Leo Moon from 11:45 am ET. Ask forgiveness or a favor then. Today's color is Purple.

Robin's Zodiac Zone February 23rd to March 1st, 2017

Yes, that heading says March 1st! We're on our way to spring, officially on March 20th around 6:30 am ET.  Planets headed into Aries before the Sun this year. Mars and Venus fight and flirt, instigate and initiate, in the first sign right now, as we move through the Pisces eclipse that closes the Virgo/Pisces series that began in 2015.

Let's look at the essence of the solar eclipse for Sunday, February 26th. At 8 degrees of Pisces, it's symbol is a 'royal coat of arms'* and it's momentum is forward. Because it's Pisces, the 12th sign, there's a letting go and moving out of a cycle, making space and path for what's new and different. Pisces is a mutable sign, and that means adapting and changing.  Neptune's influence is potent, so creativity peaks. So do questions of duplicity and what's real. The eclipse will stimulate some deep or dark corners, in search of honesty and cleansing. We may have to sort through lies, false perceptions, and erase or let go of stories we've created to protect the fragile parts of us or those around us. Drugs that alter the mind or facilitate escapism fall under Neptune's domain, and events and activity related to addiction may peak with the eclipse. Some people will be presented with strong reason to change these habits and others that keep them from being truly authentic and truly free.

Mars meets Uranus in Aries on the same date. This is provocative, argumentative and volatile. It's quite different from the eclipse itself, however as the two combine forces, anxiety and over reactions will be common.  It's best not to engage in debates during this time. Do what you can to avoid an outburst or conflict. These two planets in Aries can increase violence and anger. Games and other competitive situations become serious and relentless.

The positive side of Mars in Aries is also present. Surprising action, more motivation, and pure passion can lead to discoveries and awakenings.

The solar eclipse marks a new time in life for Pisces and for Virgos born on the direct opposite side of the zodiac. The closer your birthday to February 26th or the 6 month marker on the other side, the more impactful you may find this eclipse.  That's you if you're born during the final days of August or earliest dates of September, August 28th being a median date.  Gemini and Sagittarius in the late dates of May/November and earliest of June/December also have the eclipse at interesting, impactful points for your Sun sign.

*As for the royal coat of arms, I see this as what you carry forward and how you represent yourself on this new journey. Notice what you wear on your sleeve, so to speak. What you make public and the parts of your experience you identify with most will impact how others respond to you as well as what you believe about yourself.  Is it time to redesign your 'coat of arms'? Do this actively by choosing 4 images you'd like to represent yourself with going forward. Draw it. Post them on my facebook page if you like.

Welcome change on an emotional level. Invite the new!
Robin
Thank you!

Rebellion and expressiveness vibrate now.  What are you a warrior for?
