Aromatherapy option and crystal bowl and solfreggio forks sound healing. Advance sign ups only.

Thursday: At 1:41 am ET, the Moon moves to Scorpio. Mercury and Mars align today and people will quickly jump to conclusions or decisions.  Scorpio Moon favors long lasting impacts so make sure you really mean what you say.  Original ideas and bursts of mental energy come out of this alignment as well. Today's color is Red.

Friday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Neptune and Pluto and squares Mercury in Aquarius. Wrestle with ideas and see if you can sort out any blocks in your path.  We may want more privacy and opportunity to focus and work quietly.  Void Moon begins at 2:38 pm ET. Today's color is Indigo.

Saturday: The Sun moves to Pisces at 6:31 am ET. The Moon is void of course until 1:52 pm ET. Take the morning hours easy. Do something relaxing. Avoid shopping and detail oriented work. After 1:52 pm the Sagittarius Moon squares the Sun in Pisces. It'll be hard to pin down plans and get specific. People may be elusive. Have plan b and c just in case. Today's color is Purple.

Sunday: Sagittarius Moon aligns with Venus and squares Neptune.  Have a romantic adventure or spur of the moment outing with a friend. Trust yourself above anyone else while you're at it. Today is not the best for having blind faith. Light blue is today's color.

Monday: Plenty of activity and action with today's Sagittarius Moon meeting Saturn, aligned with Jupiter, Mars, Mercury and Uranus.  Also Mercury and Uranus align in Aquarius and Aries. Settlements, outcomes, announcements, speedy solutions, and spontaneous decisions.  There's a lot going on and some of it will result in changes and judgments that have long been in the works. Void Moon 6:37 pm ET so finalize your decision before then (adjust to your own time zone). Today's color is Red.

Tuesday: Moon to Capricorn at 2:08 am ET. Mercury and Jupiter in harmony in Aquarius and Libra. This looks like a very productive day and a good time for sharing ideas, wisdom, and learning. Invent, open your mind, and connect with other people in the process. Moon and Sun are in complementary signs, Cap & Pisces.  Draw upon each others' strengths.  Green is today's color.

Wednesday: Today is about pushing boundaries. Strength and limitations will be tested. Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn (one of a number of squares today), and leadership may change. Fears will confronted or stirred and courage is put to the test.  Capricorn Moon squares Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus. We'll be dealing with the unforeseen.  Today's color is Black.

Ready for eclipse time! The time has come!

Thursday: The Moon moves to Leo at 4:41 ET, opposite Mercury in Aquarius and in harmony with Venus and Mars in Aries. Themes include the heart, compromise and communication in relationships, and passionate love.  The Leo Moon is Full with a lunar eclipse at 7:33 pm on Friday night. Sun sextile Uranus makes new ideas and connections exciting. Feelings of infatuation prevail. Creative and romantic peaks as well as strong impulses toward long term change are in the forecast. Today's color is Purple.

Friday: Lunar eclipse in Leo is the first eclipse of 2017, accelerating change and delivering surprises. This is a heart opening and awakening eclipse. Completions and final announcements are to be expected.  How do you want to live a more dynamic, heart centered life? Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries support the Leo Moon with elements of growth, justice, learning and sense of adventure or faith to move forward. Venus and Mercury align for social connections, important conversations and willingness to venture into new territory emotionally or otherwise. White is today's color.

Saturday: Void of course Moon 12:52 am to 9:52 am ET. Virgo Moon grounds us in the reality of change on the physical plane, adding to any emotional shift already occurring. "So what are you going to do about 'it'?" is the present question.  There's not a rush although you may feel surges of energy or impulse along with having a good reason to 'do something' tangible.  Saturn provides the good reason in the form of an event or in the form of wisdom and logic.  The Sun aligns with Jupiter which is all positive and hopeful. Design a dream to follow up on or take the next step into a passion, commitment or promise. Allow for endings since without them there would be no room for beginnings. Today's color is Blue.

Sunday: Remember that you're still in Full Moon time and that news and changes will continue to happen. The event or awakening of the eclipse could happen today. Virgo Moon opposes Neptune and aligns with Pluto. We must take a pulse on the realities and not deny them out of fear or wishful thinking.  Confront dishonesty or masking. Today's color is Black.

Monday: Zooming out of Full Moon into waning cycle, void of course Moon is transitional from 7:36 am to 3:43 pm ET. You might not know quite what to make of current circumstances or people. Exercise patience. The Moon squares Saturn. It's challenging to focus during void Moon, but try. Remember things you've learned and act accordingly. Libra Moon 3:43 pm ET.  Today's color is Light Blue.

Tuesday: Libra Moon, the sign of partnership rules Valentine's Day. The Moon actually opposes Venus and Mars so partnerships may experience the extremes, may call for compromise and fair reasoning, and opposites may attract. Sun sextile Saturn favors successes and relates to education, travel and original thinking. It could be a good day to present a project, take a test or build structure around a good plan. Today's color is Pink.

Wednesday: Moon meets Jupiter in Libra. Pursue fair outcomes. There's an element of surprise. Perhaps a meeting goes more easily than expected.  Alternately, someone may argue a point you didn't expect. Be ready for most anything as Pluto brings out the hidden and Saturn urges wisdom and commitment.  Today's color is Blue.

Robin's Zodiac Zone Weekly Astrology January 26th-February 1, 2017

February is eclipse season and love month. February's Full Moon bursts with heart energy. Experience physical heart opening practice with plenty of astrological insight on February 11th. Define and move for your heart's desire. Like Beck sings, " Heart is a Drum", and Kate Beever, musician/ music therapist complements our heartbeats and breath with live percussion during yoga. Get in on this action at this link or in the SY studio. 2-3:45 pm at Scarborough Yoga.

Thursday: Quiet contemplation. Processing alone or by meeting with others and determine the next course of action. Work through issues of justice, balance, and self versus group. The Capricorn Moon aligns with Venus in Pisces. Be realistic yet gentle and progressive while taking feelings into consideration.  Let go of what's futile or unproductive in favor of what can be if you allow it. Welcome fresh energy by releasing a burden you don't need or cannot change.  Today's color is Black.

Friday: Void Moon 2:18 to 3:37 am ET. Moon to Aquarius, the visionary and scientist. New Moon is at 7:07 pm ET. Venus square to Saturn in Sagittarius.  Partners, couples and other duos decide how or whether to move forward together.  Avoid sarcasm or snarky ways that may result from bottled up anger or frustration.  Move from passive feelings to conscious conversation and self expression.  Time beginnings from 7:07 pm on. This ushers in eclipse season since this New Moon leads to the first eclipse of 2017, in Leo on the 10th/11th according to time zone.  Today's color is White.

Saturday: Mars moves to his home sign Aries at 12:39 am ET. Mars is bold, innovative and rebellious in the first zodiac sign.  This begins the Year of the Rooster in Chinese zodiac.  Rooster year is about finding peace by confronting fear. In the book Chinese Power Animals, Pamela Leigh Powers notes that the media is constantly feeding fear as are governments and agencies like insurance companies. I would add pharmaceutical advertisements to that list. For a change, take note of what's not wrong and also of how you do have power. Banish some fear and experience more peace in yourself.  Aquarius Moon is New and today is a good time to start almost anything as Jupiter and Uranus align with the Moon.  Today's color is Red.

Sunday: Void Moon 12:52 am to 11:10 am ET. Pisces Moon shifts us to feeling emotions, creative pursuits and spiritual experiences. Respond to and take care of your emotional life today. Mercury and Pluto meet in Capricorn which is another reminder to face fears. Recognize what makes you anxious or creates avoidance and, if possible, gain some perspective. Reverse negative thought patterns by remembering what you're grateful for and what's not wrong. Make a list. Starts are favored this week too.  Wear or meditate on the color Blue.

Monday: Next time the Moon is in Pisces, in February, we'll experience a solar eclipse (Feb. 26th). Vibrations of what's to come are in the air now.  Pisces relates to compassion for others as well as taking care of yourself and your emotions.  Be gentle and act to maintain or improve your mental/emotional health and sensitively respond to others, including loved ones in any sort of crisis. Moon meets Neptune so be careful of delusions. Moon aligns with Mercury and Pluto continuing themes of Sunday's forecast.  Today's color is Green.

Tuesday: Pisces Moon meets both Venus and Mars. Our relationships and ways of connecting with others are highlighted today. Forgive, receive, create or seek safe spaces and emotionally healthy or spiritual practices. Void Moon 12:36 to 4:46 pm ET. Aries Moon changes the tone from subtle and inner to bold and outward. Mercury squares Uranus in Aries. Ideas and inspiration may be followed by quick action. You may feel like there's no time to spare. We need to be careful of sarcasm and verbal outbursts.  Today's color is Red.

Wednesday: Aries Moon in harmony with the Aquarius Sun for innovation, new ideas and unique self expression.  Be authentic and seek the same in others. Explore alternative options or points of view. Beginnings are still favored. Pursue your passions. Today's color is Yellow.

Thursday: Mercury moves to Capricorn at 9 am ET. We are still retracing degrees of Mercury retrograde, though the retro itself is over. Revisions are likely if you acted weeks ago and have changed your mind or the situation has shifted. Some will go back on their word or their decision in favor of something completely different. Also, some things may be altered or edited rather than scrapped completely.Void of course Moon 3:55 am to 4:24 pm ET.  Be cautious with statements, emails, texts, information and trust during that time.

Do have well thought out personal conversations. Relationships are in focus as Venus and Mars relate to the Moon from the sign Pisces.
