Robin's Zodiac Zone June 22nd to 28th, 2017

Thursday: Robin's Zodiac Yoga 5:30 pm with Happy Folk music on Congress Square Park Portland, Maine. It's free. Bring your mat! Astrology theme for Summer Solstice and Cancer New Moon!


This is the day prior to Cancer New Moon. It's time to shed an outdated belief or move on in your heart, and create space for love, romance, healing and reconnecting. That can include reunions or forgiveness and may also mean  making room for a  housemate, family member or other person who needs care and nurturing.  The Moon is in Gemini, aligned with Jupiter in Libra for fairness and positivity in relationships. It may also be fun and stimulating to be with people you didn't know well, or at all, before today. Socialize. Expect that others will need flexibility and freedom to express feelings and ideas.  Today's color is Light Blue.

Friday Cancer New Moon 10:31 pm EDT, meeting the Sun of course and approaching Mercury for a conjunction in the early hours of Saturday. Early in the day, things are changeable or could feel unstable as Uranus harmonizes with Gemini Moon. Gemini Moon opposes Saturn retro and that may feel like pressure to give your word or to sign a contract. Take your time if possible.  Endeavors are best started after New Moon, and through the days ahead.  2:45 pm to 6:07 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course. Late day Cancer Moon leads to heartfelt or other necessary conversations.  The protective and caring urge could come across as controlling or criticism. Do the best you can to be clear.  Today's color is White.

Saturday: Cancer Moon with a variety of planetary aspects. Venus aligns with Pluto. Understanding is a key word today. Can you understand something more clearly, ask for clarification,  or empathize with others' emotions so as not to judge harshly? How does understanding apply in your life right now? Do you need someone to show more understanding, and if so can you gently ask for that? Today's color is Blue.

Sunday: Cancer Moon aligns with Venus for harmony and love. Almost simultaneously, Mars and Jupiter form the sharp corners of a square. This sets up action around what's fair or requires more justice or balance. Family and partnership situations that are out of sync are most implied.  Consider what's fair in terms of sharing, judgment, and with resources or responsibilities. Cancer Moon void from 2:44 pm to 6:06pm EDT. Leo Moon follows and may bring more optimism and sense of fun for Sunday night or Monday.  Today's color is Gold.

Monday: The Leo Moon aligns with Jupiter for socializing, fun and acts of generosity and love.  Mars and Neptune align which may soften some edges and help us overlook what we cannot change. Creativity may peak. Be compassionate and notice who you enjoy being around. Positive people will lift you up, so find them. Today's color is Purple.

Tuesday: Leo Moon with varied aspects. Mercury is a major influence with a square to Jupiter and a trine to Neptune. Mercury meets Mars on Wednesday so that's approaching as well. Strong reason to form agreements, sign contracts, communicate pressing information or feelings, and issues of justice all come with these aspects.  There's no specific reason to be wary about agreements or legal matters right now. Saturn is retrograde, but that's true fairly often during the year. Evaluate timing. Does it feel right to move forward or resolve something now? Family and home related matters take precedence. Leo Moon void from 5:12 pm to 8:41 pm EDT. During those hours play it safe. Virgo Moon moves in. Tonight may be romantic or a good time for magical and imaginative work or play. Today's color is Indigo.

Wednesday: Virgo Moon. Mercury and Mars meet. Avoid defensive behavior or words. Listen and notice what you're protecting from feelings to people. Is that useful or could opening up and being more flexible ease a strain or emotional pain.  Can you avoid being passive aggressive and communicate about feelings without blaming? Problem solve under Virgo Moon. Today's color is Yellow.

Thursday: The Moon is nearly Full and in this month's Full Moon sign, Sagittarius. The Moon is in harmony with Jupiter in Libra and squares Neptune in Pisces.  The Moon and Jupiter alignment equals good fortune, and Libra, Sagittarius, Leo, and Gemini may experience luck through opportunities, travels, fulfilled wishes, and supportive friends.  Today's color is Turquoise.

Friday:Full Moon in Sagittarius is at 9:20 am EDT. This Full Moon of fire may fuel strong disagreements and also lead to closure in important life matters. The Moon meets Saturn retrograde and  you may close a chapter through a legal agreement or other significant decision. Venus and Mars align today, in Taurus and Cancer, for romance and reassurance even during this time of polar opposition. Recognize where it's important to be loyal. Know what's worth fighting for and what might be better to let go of. Today's color is White.

Saturday: From 2:20 am to 7:36 am EDT, the Moon is void of course. Capricorn Moon for the rest of the weekend. The Moon opposes Mars which may be difficult in matters of the heart or of controversy and debate.  The Moon aligns with Venus, helping to offset some of that opposition. Relationships and family matters take strong priority and may be quite stirred up today. The Full Moon zone continues, and you may notice this as certain situations peak. Today's color is Green.

Sunday: Capricorn Moon squares Jupiter, is in harmony with Neptune and meets Pluto. If something is wrong, face up to the reality and do something about it. Avoidance gets you nowhere. This is meant to be a productive day.  Today's color is Black.

Monday: Void Moon 2:45 to 7:45 pm. Use the hours before then to be productive and engaged in your priorities. The Moon squares Uranus at 2:45 pm, and annoyances or power struggles may flare up. Do routine things and exercise or relax during the void Moon hours.  Aquarius Moon sets in for a social night which is also a decent night for studies or work. Violet is today's color.

Tuesday: A busy day in the zodiac. The strong influences come from the Aquarius Moon, Mercury in Gemini and Jupiter in Libra. Note that these are the 3 air signs, relating to intelligence, communication, ideas, and discretion.  It's a day for good judgement, fair treatment, and conversation or meetings.  Agreements and partnerships form or take new shape.  Today's color is Blue.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon aligns with the Sun and Saturn. It's another day for agreements, co-creating, intellect and invention.  The Moon and Sun favor our social interactions too. Wear Silver.

Robin's Zodiac Zone June 1st to 8th, 2017

Thursday: Virgo Moon, 2nd quarter, a time for productivity and progress. Try to leave pressure out of the mix. Today can be easy going as Moon and Pluto form a trine and Neptune is across from the Moon. Neptune's opposition can add to lack of timeliness and reliability. Notice if you're lost in a dream or detached from others. Ground where your energy is needed. Venus and Saturn form a trine for resolving partnership matters and taking the lead where forgiveness or other agreements are needed and perhaps feel overdue.  Today's color is Green.

Friday: Virgo Moon will be void of course 5:48 to 8:04 pm. Moon in harmony with Pluto, and Mercury, all in earth signs, favors the practical matters of life. We can communicate more reasonably and understand our own hopes, motives or fears better with these aspects.  Virgo Moon square to Mars and Saturn intensifies the call to act and to take things seriously.  Get into the details and stay out of disagreements. Know what you're willing to stand steadfast for as others may test your vulnerability or limits.  Libra Moon moves in at 8:04 pm EDT for a social Friday night and weekend. Today's color is Pink.

Saturday: Libra Moon meets Jupiter and the Sun aligns from Gemini, gracing social events and parties. Partnerships, marriages, close friendships, and first meetings are all favored today. You may feel the inspiration for something new or celebrate the results of what's been in the works for a long while. Venus and Uranus are together in Aries for spontaneous dates, strong attraction, and maybe love at first sight.  Today's color is Blue (wear your favorite shade!).

Sunday: Libra Moon square to Pluto retro in Capricorn. The Sun squares Neptune in Pisces.  Ask yourself if those feelings you have, that resentment or perception, is really truth. Could you let go of an outdated idea about someone or about a relationship or friendship from the past? How would it feel to be free of one piece of baggage? Live in the now and notice any detachment or fear of what's real. Tune in to what's right here in front of you and live your life more joyfully. Illusions are not your friend. Mars moves to Cancer at 12:16 pm EDT. Mars is uncomfortable in Cancer's emotional realm. Let go of defensiveness before it takes root.  Today's color is White.

Monday: Libra Moon void from 4:57 to 6:46 am EDT and opposes both Uranus and Venus before daybreak. Moon shifts to Scorpio for the rest of the day. Relationship matters are quite stirred up. Status changes may come by surprise. Feelings will come across very strongly for the next few days. The Moon aligns with Mars and you'll see protectiveness in play. Protecting one's own interests or feelings or privacy are examples.  Also we may fiercely protect other people. Wear Indigo Blue today.

Tuesday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Neptune and Pluto. The Scorpio energy is strong and intense. Yet, the trine angles may help ease tension or assist in processing emotional situations.  Venus shifts to Taurus after some fiery aspects in the past week. That can be a welcome relief if love and anxiety seem to be companions lately.  Venus is more earthy, loyal, and sensual in Taurus. Mercury moves to home sign Gemini at 6:15 pm EDT which inspires writing and imagination as well as networking with others for the next few weeks. Void Moon begins 8:35 pm EDT. Yellow is today's color.

Wednesday: Long void of course Moon ends at 6:59 pm EDT when the Moon moves to Sagittarius.  Keep life simple today. Take care of routines and what needs to be accomplished as the Moon waxes toward Full on Friday. Moon opposes Mercury at 11:39 pm EDT. Notice communication that comes through tonight and pause before responding, making sure you understand clearly and avoiding a quick reaction you might change your mind about later.  Today's color is Purple.

On Thursday, June 22nd join me outdoors on the 'dance floor' for RoZoYo® Solstice and New Moon Yoga with music by Happy Folk on Congress Square Park Portland, Maine 5:30-6:45 pm. This sequence will celebrate the start of summer and Cancer New Moon.  Come for the yoga, the music or to breathe with us! All are welcome and it's free, courtesy of Congress Square Arts.
