Robin's Zodiac Zone March 18th-24th, 2018

This week follows Saturday's New Moon, brings spring and the retrograde of Mercury. The contrast of influences goes something like, "Let's get started! No, wait." If you do begin, keep terms and plans open enough for future changes and edits. These are the days when the easy route, the simple plan, may be the way to go.

Sunday: Aries Moon squares Saturn in Capricorn. The Moon meets both Venus and Mars. Be wary of being to serious or stern to enjoy life, love, friendship and spontaneous plans. Spring fever arrives in love lives. Notice attractions as love becomes fun and adventurous. Red is today's color.

Monday: Aries Moon until 9:07 pm EDT. Void Moon begins at 3:29. Moon square Pluto and conjunct with Uranus. Fiery energy leads to moving quickly. Avoid being too rash in judgment or impulsive in action or words. Taurus Moon trine Mars late night and some will work diligently into the night with this productive, energized angle. Mercury conjunct Venus at midnight exactly for flirtations and promise of excitement ahead. Pink is today's color.

Tuesday: Note the Venus/Mercury meeting that started this day. Taurus Moon trine Saturn in Cap and sextile Neptune in Pisces. Plenty of harmony for relationships and business agreements. Go on a date or do some meet and greet. Creative work favored. The Sun moves to Aries and spring arrives at 12:15 pm EDT. Green is today's color.

Wednesday: Taurus Moon moves into a long void of course time at 1:21 pm EDT. Taurus Moon is time to show loyalty and as the Moon opposes Jupiter retro in Scorpio, trust and alliances must be considered as you act or decide. Moon aligns with Pluto also, for internal 'work' like reconciling feelings from the past. Today's color is Blue.

Thursday: Moon crosses to Gemini at 1:30 am EDT. Mercury, Gemini's ruling planet, moves retrograde for a few weeks at 8:19 pm EDT. The Moon and Sun align for an optimistic day as air feeds fire. Inspiration and energy abound, yet Mercury in Aries indicates time to slow down. Go for measured actions and progress. Today's color is Yellow.

Friday: Gemini Moon and a typical Gemini sort of day with things and people pulling in various directions. Many planetary aspects and it may not be easy to focus on one thing. Today could be fun though! And Venus squares Pluto for contemplation around relationships of the heart. Fears about new alliances may arise. Trust your inner voice most. Void Moon 11:52 pm EDT to 4:53 am. Today's color is Turquoise.

Saturday: Cancer Moon time begins at 4:53 am EDT. Moon opposes Saturn and Moon and Sun square Mars. Reconsider interactions that will agitate or confront, for now. It's likely to be a moody, somber or defensive time.  Today's color is Black.

Jupiter is retrograde. It's common, occurring every 13 months and lasting for about 4. Don't let this get in your way, just know it may lead to soul searching and perhaps point out what's been overdone. The retrograde allows for more inner work and reflection which can mean breakthroughs ahead! Jupiter retrograde late night March 8th/early hours of March 9th until July 10th, 2018.

Sunday: Daylight Savings time begins at 2:00 am. Clock turn forward an hour then. Capricorn Moon. The stronger stories come as Mercury squares Saturn and Mars aligns with Uranus.

Monday: Urges to move forward and purge may be strong now. The Moon wanes in Capricorn void of course from 11:38 am to 6:44 pm EST. Think before acting.

Aquarius Moon in the evening encourages groups and friends to gather. Turquoise Blue is our color.
