Robin's Zodiac Zone February 24th-March 2nd, 2019: Mercury Retrograde Prep

Mercury retrograde begins officially on March 5th. Yet, we are already into degrees Mercury will retrace. Begin to slow down more and really notice and pay attention to the 'fine print' of life and the resurfacing, especially of emotions, that Mercury retrograde in Pisces likely brings.

Sunday: Scorpio Moon aligns with both Neptune and Saturn. Those two planets have been influencing us this winter and they have such different influences! It's like two of your best friends, one who leads you astray and says don't worry about it while the other reminds you of what you have to do or how to be a grown up. Can you make decisions for yourself that balance somewhere in between? Do what you enjoy and feel accomplished at once. Dive deep without going so far you can't come back or apply in the physical world. Today is a good day for an intuitive reading or to do your own personal 'work'.  Wear Indigo.

Monday: Void of course Moon from 7:14 am to 4:19 pm ET. Void Moon may help you relax or make you forgetful. This transition time isn't known for results. Take care of simple and personal errands and tasks. For example, this may not be the best day to gather your tax information unless it's later than 4:19 pm. Relationships are the focus of today. Enjoy the company. Sagittarius Moon tonight. Wear Purple.

Tuesday: 4th quarter Moon in Sagittarius. More than Full Moon time, these are the days and a good sign for letting go and releasing. More than school vacation week, this could be a good week to travel, explore and discover. As a whole we're more likely to try and escape responsibilities. Today's color is Light Blue.

Wednesday: The Moon meets Jupiter in a fortunate and mind opening monthly conjunction, in Sagittarius. Notice what people are talking to you about and presenting and see if there's opportunity to interest to follow up. The Sun and Mars are in harmony in Pisces/Taurus drawing us to earth and sea. Make the land or the water part of your day. They are sources of life force. Today's color is Red.

Thursday: Brief overnight void Moon gives way to Capricorn Moon time at 1:48 am ET. The Moon aligns with the Sun in Pisces and Mars in Taurus, the two that got things rolling yesterday. Today you may take inspiration and ideas and give them tangible shape, form, and structure. This is helpful for those of you working on projects and products. Today's color is Green.

Friday: Venus moves to Aquarius, sign of friendship and community, at 11:45 am ET. These weeks are for finding our place in groups and aligning with like minded others. Capricorn Moon meets Saturn and Pluto for a get the job done attitude and motivation. Respect is a key word today. Wear Black.

Saturday: The Moon is in harmony with Mercury and meets Venus today. Moon and Uranus form a square. Venus, Uranus and the Moon have been exchanging energy late this week so relationships, romantic connections or disconnections, and emotional confusion or intensity is in the forefront. The Moon shifts from Capricorn to Aquarius, void of course in transition from just 1:47 to 2:06 pm ET, so it's brief. Both Cap & Aquarius lean toward more emotional detachment and can sometimes seem insensitive or just very objective. These tendencies can be helpful if there's too much drama. Stepping back, one can see more clearly. Today's color is Blue.

Robin's Zodiac Zone February 17th-23rd, 2019: Full Moon in Virgo & Pisces Season

Virgo Full Moon opens up a world of freedom and is a huge change agent! Tuesday morning 10:54 am ET, adjust for your time zone. The Sun journeys to Pisces at 6:04 pm ET on Monday, the 18th and the last third of winter begins.

Restorative Yoga with Aromatherapy and Reiki happens again on Saturday April 6th, 2-4 pm with Addie (aka Adrienne) Powers Johnson offering reiki to all. Sign up at Scarborough Maine Yoga online or in studio. Also I think there are a few spaces left in Tarot Reading/Yoga Nidra Journey mini retreat on March 2nd, also at Scarborough Yoga. Read more about each workshop at this link.

I hope you enjoy the changes this Pisces cycle brings! The world (this country) is insane right now, and Uranus promises that will continue until there is radical breakdown and later a restructuring. It's necessary that we go through this destruction/recreation cycle, the work of the mythological Goddess Kali. All the while, on the inside, you are love, you are peace. And you can offer Love and Peace everywhere in every situation. Tap into your own wellspring of all that is good!

Sunday: We are in the Full Moon aura, warming up for Tuesday's Virgo Full Moon. Leo Moon time begins at 10:21 am ET after about one hour void of course. It's a day of significant squares, which usually indicate challenges and things to be faced. Leo is the sign of courage and strength. Mars and Uranus are fiery planets squaring the fire sign Moon. All may seem amped up, dynamic, and activated. Like all things, this can be felt negatively like confrontation or adversarial, or positively like enthusiasm and high energy. Today's color is Orange, color of creative thinking and collaboration.

Monday: Leo Moon and the Sun moves to Pisces at 6:04 pm ET. Babies born earlier are Aquarius and from 6:04 on are Pisces. Both Leo and Pisces are open hearted signs. Pisces is the more emotional and Leo you might call the generous one. In both personal and public ways we may extend our talents, gifts and blessings to others today. Venus meets Saturn in Capricorn. Relationship agreements and terms come together. The Sun aligns with Uranus for one last blast before moving to Pisces. It's an inspiring and revolutionary aspect intended to change things. I felt that needed bold so you don't skim past it. Uranus is the major planetary player during this late winter time, and about to move to Aries where a retrograde began months ago. Uranus is now direct at the end of Aries, moving in early March during the New Moon. Uranus is also the planet most closely associated with tomorrow's Full Moon. Revolutionary, radically different, alternative, unexpected, breaking paradigms, sometimes breaking all down to be reformed and rethought, those are descriptions of the Uranus effect.
Leo Moon aligns with Jupiter to open the mind as well as the heart. Their combined energy is expansive and altruistic. Today's color is Gold.

Tuesday: Full Moon lands on the first degree of Virgo, sign of service to humanity, at 10:54 am ET. The Moon is void in Leo for less than an hour before moving to Virgo at 9:47 am ET. Overnight Mercury and Neptune meet in Pisces (gentle and creative ideas and conversations). Mercury also aligns with Saturn at 9:39 pm ET indicating something will come of the discussions and efforts we put forth now. Decisions are likely and have the qualities of commitment and willingness to contribute in  the best ways we know how. Uranus and Mars are the planets most active with Full Moon. Uranus is in Aries, still very fiery and sometimes argumentative (look at the national news and you can see this clearly). Mars is in early degrees of Taurus, strong and persistent. Because of Uranus this Full Moon has a theme of freedom and liberation, moving away from restrictions and outworn ideas. Mars adds a constructive, rebuilding element. Notice what needs to be scrapped and broken down, what is released or what you are released from, and how things begin to take shape again. Virgo Moon has qualities of versatility, productivity, flow, resourcefulness, and willingness to help and offer whatever you can. Today's color is White.

Wednesday: Virgo Moon and a whole variety of aspects today. Full Moon news and business rolls out into the open. Active problem solving is likely. Feelings are present with planets and Sun in Pisces, and doing something to channel them and release stress in favor of helping or giving is healthy. Take care of physical and mental health. Void Moon begins 8:52 pm ET, a good night to do less. Wear Navy Blue.

Thursday: After void time from 8:52 pm ET on Wednesday, the Moon shifts to Libra at 9:17 am ET. The Full Moon is giving way to waning Moon. Watch as it dissolves night by night. Libra Moon generally relates to partnerships and collaborations. Schedule one on one time with someone important to you, either for business or pleasure. Today's color is Pink.

Friday: An active Libra Moon square to 3 planets in Capricorn including Venus. Venus meets Pluto in Capricorn. The planet of relationship, harmony, and sense of beauty encourages you to see the beauty in yourself, to find a sense of peace around something. This may be the result of coming to terms or agreement within yourself or with someone or something else. Deep thoughts and feelings around partnership, roles and relationships are highlighted and arise. Capricorn is a practical sign, so this isn't overly sentimental. It may help some to move on from what has to/had to change. There are a number of squares in the zodiac so there may be big or small sticky points to resolve and figure out. Today's color is Lavender.

Saturday: First, Libra Moon is opposite Uranus in Aries and anything related to this week's Full Moon can be activated and revisited. In relationships, this can lead to big change. Matters of justice, legal proceedings, and progressive changes all play in strongly to this opposition and this week. Void Moon begins with that opposition, at 10:11 am ET. At 10:56 am the Moon moves to Scorpio where there will be harmony with the Pisces Sun and an opposition to Mars. Expect intensity. Mercury is aligned with Pluto. Today looks like a long term decision time, and relates to things that have been in the works for a long while as well. Notice what is revealed, awakened, made public. Today's color is Black.

Robin's Zodiac Zone February 10th-16th, 2019: Mercury & Mars Move

Mercury moves to Pisces and Mars to Taurus this week. The Moon is waxing toward Full on the 19th, in Virgo.

Sunday: Mercury moves to Pisces. In March we'll have a Mercury retrograde time in Pisces as well. These couple of February weeks are best for taxes, offers on homes, new leases and announcements that won't wait until April. In Pisces, Mercury is flexible and concerned with feelings. Forgiveness may be an open option. Aries Moon meets Mars and Uranus today with an active and wild urge toward the new and toward confronting anger or disharmony. Void Moon 6:48 pm ET to 8:28 pm and then Moon in Taurus. Night hours may be more calm or centered. Today's color is White.

Monday: Taurus Moon aligns with Venus in Capricorn. Some things will fall together smoothly today. Decide and commit. Today can be nice for romance and pleasures. Wear Pink.

Tuesday: Taurus Moon void 5:26 pm ET until 4:32 am on Wednesday. Neptune, Pluto and Saturn align with the Moon from Pisces and Capricorn. Todays aspects helps us get things accomplished. Our color is Green.

Wednesday: Gemini Moon time begins 4:32 am ET. This is a sign of communication, intellect and movement. Mars and Uranus meet in a very unpredictable, dynamic and potentially volatile place, in Aries, as Mars prepares to move on to Taurus. Leaving Mars home sign, this planet says 'my work is done here' and leaves an obvious result or impression. One basic idea here is acting on what's new and moving on. There are many potential effects. Play it cool today and err on the safe side to balance out this strong, powerful conjunction. Today's color is Blue.

Thursday: Gemini Moon. Re-read yesterday's forecast, still in play. Mars also moves on to Taurus at 5:51 am ET. Notice the effect as this planet changes signs after a strong push or urge toward 'something'. This is Valentine's Day, hmmm. It's not the most romantic or harmonious of days as Jupiter is opposing the Moon and Neptune is square. If you have a way with words, maybe you will compose something to get creative energy channeled. There may be nervous anxiety evident in you or others around you. What calms us will be appreciated. Today's color is Light Blue.

Friday: Void Moon 7:48 to 9:03 am ET and then Cancer Moon. Cancer Moon aligns with Mars newly in Taurus. This may have a more settled or settling influence. Stay centered and strong on the home front and with family dynamics. Today's color is White.

Saturday: Full Moon warmup may be felt today. Cancer is the Moon's home sign and today's Moon sign. Full Moon will be in Virgo on Tuesday morning. Structuring family and relationship agreements and plans is one priority. Today's color is Black.

March 2nd is coming up! I'll teach Tarot Reading and Guide a Yoga Nidra Journey with Invitation to Spirit Guides at Scarborough Yoga from 11:30-3:30 pm. Sign up while space lasts as www.scarboroughmaineyoga.com
