Sunday: Cancer to Leo Moon with transition time between 3:14 and 4:57 pm when the Moon is void of course. Face a fear or release a long held resentment. The Sun and Moon align for confidence and resilience even when strong emotion is present. When Leo Moon time takes over, two squares urge us out of our comfort zones. Be calm or strong through challenge and strengthen your will. Focus on your solar plexus, below the rib cage, as you breathe will and visualize your will and gut as full of sunshine and healthy fire. Today's color is Orange.

Monday: Leo Moon waning for releasing what we can't use and do not need. Practice releasing judgment and filling instead with self confidence. Recognize your own value and do not undersell or underestimate yourself. Today is for cultivating healthy ego and developing talents and strengths. Cleaning your work space or home will also feel good and prepare you for new opportunities just ahead.  Moon square to Mercury retro means persistent communication struggles or conflicts are part of the day. There's no need to let them dominate. You may even choose to put them aside and just for today not struggle or engage in them. Today's color is Purple.

Tuesday: Leo Moon until 8:54 pm EDT. Mars move into Scorpio, a tenuous place for this masculine, assertive planet. We'll need to moderate and temper inner grievances and anger so those emotions don't harm our health or come out in forms of violence or rage, not only today but through the rest of this year. A healthy outlet for emotions is called for. If you've been thinking about beginning more vigorous physical exercise or starting therapy, just say yes! Art and music are other potential outlets for strong emotions. Leo Moon happily connect with Venus and Jupiter in Sag for much optimism, fun dates, creative collaborations, and feelings of openness and freedom. Void Moon from 4:11 pm to 8:54 pm EDT is favorable for happy hour and other social gatherings or exercise aimed at spine and heart health. Virgo Moon aligns with Mars tonight and the urge to sort and organize is strong, plus it's good for studies. Today's color is Navy Blue.

Wednesday: Mercury direct at 2:12 pm EDT! This is good news, but do not rush into anything yet! Start to get your ideas and plans written down for your eyes only. The next week is like recovery time after 3 weeks of retro. Patience for now. Virgo Moon in harmony with Mercury and Pluto brings up unresolved business. A temporary or experimental approach is called for. Moon and Neptune oppose which may feel romantic, sensual and creative. Ease into what feels good. All in moderation. Wear Black.

Thursday: Virgo Moon until 11:20 pm EDT with 5 different planetary aspects and a void period starting at 10:31 pm EDT. Today is likely to be full and mixed in terms of emotions, events and results. Notice what you feel most serious and intentional about and take positive steps in that realm. If there are blocks or you feel out of sync with someone or something, remember Mercury is still getting used to being out of retrograde and there may be some still moments when we wish things were moving faster or more harmoniously. I think you'll notice that most in personal relationships and outside opportunities such as education, travel plans and business matters. Focus on what you can control and let the rest wait. Libra Moon arrives at 11:20 pm EDT. Today's color is Lavender.

Friday: Libra Moon for partnerships and one on one relationships. Who do you need some direct connection time with? If it can't be today, then reach out to set the date. The Sun moves into Sagittarius just before 10 am EDT! Though it feels like winter here in the northeast, this is the 3rd cycle of autumn that ends on the winter solstice. Sagittarius fire helps us let go. Release one expectation in favor of what's best for  you or someone else. Allow that space to fill with something inspiring if the timing is right. Let inspiration be your guide today. What calls out to you and how might you pursue that? Today's color is White.

Saturday: It's now Sagittarius time, and travel or just getting out of your neighborhood is appealing. Experiences of culture. learning, and refreshing nourish the Sagittarius part of our soul. Remember you have every sign in your chart, so the Sun in Sag does mean something to you, uniquely. Libra Moon with a handful of planetary aspects that contrast the ones we had on Thursday! So today may feel very different from two days ago. It's a good day for a date and could be a more challenging day for business or life decisions. It looks like a good time to remember to live in the moment. Void Moon 9:49 pm EDT to 12:58 pm EDT. Keep your wits about you then to avoid errors in judgment. Today's color is Indigo.

Both of these were taken at 2019 Yoga Festivals. The two sides of Robin. :)




Thanks Maine Yogafest and Love Yogafest. Tickets are now on sale for both! I'll be teaching at the Maine fest for sure! I hope this week brings exactly what you need! Robin

Astrology for November 10th-16th, 2019: Full Moon in Taurus

Full Moon with Mercury retrograde in the opposite sign! Support your friends and family and let them stand by you too as we move through long term changes and decisions this week.

Sunday: Aries Moon void from 9 am on after a couple of disruptive aspects with Mars and Pluto and one inspiring trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius. If you're feeling initiative for a new project or for some research on a grand idea for the future, go with it. Mars and Pluto challenge confidence and stir things up in personal relationships. Self vs others, self interests vs common good, and other similar themes influence our day. Taurus Moon from 6:18 pm EDT on through almost all of Tuesday. Full Moon warmup is here. Today's color is Green.

Monday: Taurus Moon nearly Full. This lunar cycle brings completion, release, and long term decisions. Mercury is retrograde so there may be some lingering questions and loose ends even as you move on from something. Break habits especially those you've tried to break before. Moon meets Uranus challenging stability and security. Sun meets Mercury retrograde for revisions and reconnections. Today's color is Yellow.

Tuesday: Full Moon in Taurus 8:34 am EDT and void of course from 10:48 am on to 3:46 am on Wednesday (EDT, adjust for your zone). Opposite Mercury retro in Scorpio, this Moon is quite contrary about communication including emails, letters, instructions and schedules. Loyalty is a huge deal and infidelity may be exposed. Mars aligns with Jupiter in Libra/Sagittarius and encourages fair outcomes while also inspiring learning and travel. Things may not go as planned today, especially if a meeting or appointment or personal conversation is involved. Know when to stand your ground and when to surrender and compromise. Excessive stubbornness could hold you back from something worthwhile. Weigh your pros and cons carefully. Today's color is White.

Wednesday: Gemini Moon time starts 3:46 am EDT. It could help us break a stagnant pattern or let go if we're holding on too tightly. Gemini Moon is about movement. Mercury aligns with Saturn for those big and overdue decisions and agreements. Mercury and Neptune team up for creativity and following dreams or interpreting them! The Sun aligns with Pluto and we may feel more optimistic or able to handle life's twists and turns. Channel this strong emotional energy in healthy ways. Re-organizing may be called for. Today's color is Blue.

Thursday: Gemini Moon opposite Venus can attract us to others with different perspectives, skills and outlooks from our own. Some will  meet their match or realize that someone who has been there all along can be more than just an acquaintance. Romance may follow in some cases. Intellectual matches will be made. Communicative and outgoing, this Gemini Moon squares Neptune and we need to cautious with unrealistic people or ideas. Take steps slowly, not rushing into wild plans. Some will work through a creative block, with effort. Venus and Neptune also square, in mutable signs, and there's a feeling of wanting to break free and perhaps not fulfill promises. Try not to disappoint or at least explain why and ask forgiveness. Wear Pink today.

Friday: From 6:40 to 11:15 am EDT, the Moon is void of course. This may contribute to Mercury retrograde activity (which by the way is on until the 20th). Take things slow and step by step. Avoid major purchases and technical ones unless absolutely necessary and sure. Save receipts and know your options regardless. Mars aligns with the Moon in the morning, activating us around legal and contractual matters.  Uranus is in harmony with the Cancer Moon that arrives at 11:15 am. We may need to protect our own and our family's best interests, add some security or defend our property, for examples. This looks like kind of a serious Friday. Plans close to home or at home are favored tonight. Wear Light Blue.

Saturday: Cancer Moon for family and home priorities. Saturn throws an authoritative and serious tone to the day with an opposition to the Moon. Family decisions and agreements may be necessary. Otherwise, Mercury retro and Neptune align with the Moon for connections long overdue and for creative projects, writing, or working with color. Today's color is Indigo.

Sunday: The Moon grows in light yet we've entered the 'shorter' days with the clocks moving back an hour. Waxing Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius. Aquarius Moon arrives at 6:19 am EDT in harmony with Venus for some much needed lightness, favoring social gatherings or travels. Moon and Uranus square indicating a need for inventive and brilliant ideas, problem solving and alternative approaches to making things work. Plan B, C or D is set in motion. Today's color is Pink.

Monday: Aquarius Moon is inventive and persistent. Mercury is retrograde and frustration levels may be high especially if progress and results don't seem to equal your effort and drive. Today could be motivating for some and irritating for others. It's natural to want motion during this time in the lunar cycle. Frustration will come from whatever is not happening quickly enough according to our personal timelines. Aquarius Moon is good for team efforts, so gather some supporting or skilled friends to work on a project or speed things up. Mars and Pluto square in Libra/Capricorn is exact overnight into tomorrow and it's a tough one that calls out injustice and stirs or disturbs the status quo. These few days around the square could get quite uncomfortable and lead to system and organizational changes as well as justice and/or paying the price for previous actions. Today's color is Turquoise.

Tuesday: Re-read the Mars/Pluto section of Monday's forecast as the effects are prevalent today. The Moon squares Mercury retrograde today which may not feel helpful at all. Something may need to stay undecided, unresolved or undone for now. Agreements and negotiations may be at a standstill. Remember that sometimes in retrospect, waiting is wise. Jupiter aligns with the Moon to take us away from problems. This aspect favors positive distractions, interests and inspiration if we can walk away from what's bothering us and focus on something else. Void Moon in Aquarius 9:37 am to 6:08 pm EDT. Moon in Pisces this evening for music, film, creativity and compassion for others. Today's color is Black.

Wednesday: Pisces Moon squares Venus in Sagittarius. Don't rely too heavily on others today as this square can lead to unreliability, disappointment in love, no shows or getting 'stood up'. It's a sign of breaking away and forgetting responsibilities for a while. The upside is you might take a spontaneous adventure with an unlikely travel mate. Later, the Moon aligns with the Sun in Scorpio and emotions not only settle, but we may find romance and creative force heightens. It's a good night to pull out your tarot or other divination tools or your art supplies and let intuition take over. Wear Light Blue.

Thursday: Pisces Moon aligns with Pluto, squares Jupiter and feels motivating as compared to some recent days. Travel and life decisions are front and center. As the Moon's light grows, consider how you can grow through experiences, learning and resolving emotional situations. Void Moon from 8:13 pm EDT through the overnight. Stick with the friends you trust the most or enjoy some time to work on personal projects tonight. It's meant to be taken easy. Wear Purple.

Friday: Void Moon ends as Aries Moon takes over at 6:49 am EDT.  Aries Moon is activating, motivating and driven.  More importantly, Saturn and Neptune form an interesting alignment and are supported by the Scorpio Sun! These two planets are incredible different in nature and in two contrasting signs, Capricorn and Pisces. Interestingly, each is in its' home sign, accentuating the effect. Saturn is wisdom and experience while Neptune is imagination and escape. At best, this aspect makes dreams and visions real and tangible. We are getting close to Full Moon in Taurus. Could you be experiencing or manifesting a dream come true, today or any day now? Believe, put forth the effort and hold onto your vision. We need a day like this right now! I hope you get great news or feel a sense of achievement and good fortune today or by Full Moon on the 12th. Today's color is Red.

Saturday: Aries Moon. Mercury retrograde aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. Something long overdue could be realized. An 'aha' moment changes your inner dialogue, quite possibly for the better. Some will let go of emotional roadblocks and see things in a new light. Saturn does square the Moon reminding us to be practical and sensible even as we move into exciting new territory. Combine your childlike or youthful urge to jump right in with some realism and a step by step approach. Today's color is Gold.
