Robin's Zodiac Zone November 11th-17th, 2018: Mercury Retrograde, Venus Direct

Mars to Pisces on Thursday, and on Friday Venus stations direct just hours before Mercury retrograde officially begins in the evening.

Restorative Yoga with Aromatherapy option and Reiki is Saturday, with good reason and intention, as we move into holiday weeks. Pisces is a healing, tender Moon sign and that is the aim of this session. With Addie Powers Johnson offering reiki and you choose the aromatherapy blend for you. I'll guide your yoga postures, quiet and supported for rest.
This is likely to be full by early in the week. Advance signs ups only. Registration closes Friday morning if we're not sold out.

Sunday: Capricorn Moon meets Saturn, and the Sun aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. All in all this is a serious, intentional, perhaps productive or driven influence. Face a fear and move forward. Today's color is Black.

Monday: Capricorn Moon meets Pluto for a slow unfolding or revisit to yesterday's vibes. The Moon is in harmony with the Sun in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Capricorn Moon is not the one most attuned to deep emotions, and in fact may easily detach and focus on tasks and organization, yet feelings will be impossible to ignore today. Some may include romantic love and sentimentality. Today's color is Blue.

Tuesday: Capricorn Moon void just for half an hour before moving to Aquarius at 10:45 am EST. Venus and Uranus square the Moon today and interpersonal conflict is one effect. Can you work through it fairly without drama? Aquarius Moon aligns with Jupiter newly in Sagittarius at 1:05 pm EST for broad perspective and an adventurous or inventive inspiration to follow. Today's color is Turquoise.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon aligns with Mercury soon to be retrograde. Note the importance of communications, messages, meetings, and group dynamics. What's going on now may be revisited a few times before the end of the year. This is meant to be a productive time in the lunar cycle. Yet we are also on the brink of Mercury retrograde. Everything is an experiment. That sort of approach may be most suitable for the next month. Today's color is Silver.

Thursday: The Moon is halfway to Full (November 23rd, next Friday). By the way that Gemini Full Moon has some very challenging aspects, and Mercury will be retrograde. An intention to keep things simple and calm around the Thanksgiving holiday could put you in a better frame of mind. Restore and replenish in these days ahead and do as much as you can in advance if you're hosting dinner or an event. Today Mars  moves to Pisces at 5:21 pm EST. It's a passive sign for the warrior planet. Mars is out of element completely. Perhaps channel fire energy into creation, writing and actively processing emotions so you don't feel bottled up and eventually burst or crash. Mars is in Pisces until December 31st after a very long tour of Aquarius. Mars aligns with Uranus before leaving Aquarius. This is active and unsettling, rebellious and out of the ordinary. Could be exciting, could shift something way out of the expected range. Be very cautious around explosive people and situations. The Moon has a mix of aspects. Moon shift to Pisces at 11:41 pm EST after just 43 minutes void of course. This part of the week is highlighted by more changes tomorrow. Today's color is Light Blue.

Friday: Pisces Moon meets Mars at 12:02 am EST. Notice how you feel late night or early morning. Does a feeling spontaneously come up for acknowledgment or care? Venus direct at 5:51 am and Mercury retro begins 8:33 pm EST. Many shifts late this week stir up feelings, situations, relationships, and plans. Today's color is Green.

Saturday: Pisces Moon meets Neptune, aligns well with Pluto and is square to Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius. The square may feel like something or someone holding you from a change you want to make or something you'd like to do now or soon. Mercury retro is a good reason to pause though. Is it true that there's no rush? That the opportunity will still be there in a few weeks? Slowing ourselves down is a good plan during this retrograde. Plans may change for this particular day or weekend. It's not only best but most likely necessary to be flexible and go with the flow. Today's color is Lavender.

Robin's Zodiac Zone November 4th-10th, 2018: Scorpio New Moon

This week is astrologically eventful as Jupiter moves into home sign Sagittarius for a one year tour, Uranus backs into Aries (retrograde) and we have New Moon in Scorpio. Also this is the week prior to Mercury's retrograde in Sagittarius (and later Scorpio). For the most part, this is a time of movement and action. Jupiter in Sagittarius aims to inspire and expand.

Sunday: Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00. The clocks turn back one hour. Void of course Moon for a couple of overnight hours and the Moon will be in Libra at 4:01 am, square to Saturn and in harmony with Mercury. Find plans and terms fair to all. Today's color is Blue.

Monday: Libra Moon square Pluto in Capricorn and in harmony with Mars in Aquarius. It's a day to work together. Social justice issues are one thing to gather around. Some will face fears related to partnership, in business or love. Today's color is Lavender.

Tuesday: Libra Moon void 3:19 am to 8:02 am EST, then in Scorpio where the New Moon arrives tomorrow. Uranus moves back into Aries. Sun trine Neptune for creativity, imagination and romance. Venus is in conjunction with the Moon for similar effect. This is an interesting and perhaps variable day with other aspects as well. New Moon is tomorrow so take today to reflect and consider the upcoming cycle and what your intentions are. Today's color is Pink.

Wednesday: New Moon in Scorpio for long lasting decisions and influence. Act on what you're truly committed to. Pluto and Neptune are in harmony with the Moon. We may need to be gentle or request privacy or independent time. This is a very introspective, emotion oriented New Moon. White is today's color.

Thursday: Jupiter and the Moon both move into Sagittarius, the mutable fire sign. Change is in the air as we just had New Moon and Jupiter begins a year in a new sign, his home sign. From 5:42 am to 1:59 pm EST the Moon is in Scorpio waiting to changes signs. This can be a relaxing or an uncertain time where nothing is quite clear. Sometimes that enables us to take an action without overthinking. If you do that, double check later, edit or make sure you follow up. Sagittarius Moon inspires us to move and act, travel and speak our personal truths. Wear Purple today.

Friday: Sagittarius Moon meets Mercury. New ideas and methods are a topic. Notice as the next 'big' thing is presented or implemented. Venus retro and Mars are in harmony. Enthusiasm may bubble up more readily and forgiveness feels right and possible. Reconciliation can be attempted and revisited for longevity when Venus is direct again (November 16th and beyond). Try something out or on for size without long term expectations. Experiment, explore.  Today's color is Red.

Saturday: Sagittarius Moon until 10:55 pm EST with only a very short time void of course tonight. Friendly reconnections or new friendships are highlighted. Social, enthusiastic, energetic vibe. Today's color is Green. Moon to Capricorn 10:55 pm EST.

November 17th 2-4 pm Restorative Yoga with Reiki healing and Aromatherapy at Scarborough Yoga. Addie Powers Johnson offers Reiki healing while you rest in supported yoga postures. Sign up ahead only at at the workshops link.

Robin's Zodiac Zone October 28th-November 3rd, 2018: Venus Back to Libra

Sunday: Gemini Moon void of course from 12:37 am to 7:27 pm EDT. Spontaneity. The best plan may be no plan at all. Changeable. Cancer Moon aligns with Uranus and Venus tonight. People may seem quite unpredictable or cranky. Cancer is the sign of our families. White is today's color.

Monday: Cancer Moon opposes Saturn in Capricorn. Give attention to whatever needs some structure and a sensible approach. Mercury meets Jupiter in Scorpio which for some means good news around finances, business plans or whatever part of your chart Jupiter is touring.  Open channels of communication. Wear Black.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon in harmony with Mercury and Jupiter for more of yesterday's news, including settling something with family members or in a business relationship. The Moon is void for a short 11 minutes from 10:31 to 10:42 pm EDT then in Leo. Leo Moon squares Uranus and Venus. This is likely to feel unstable and may rattle us to the bone. Stubbornness and unwillingness to compromise may come up as strong issues. Today's color is Purple.

Wednesday: Waning Moon in Leo,. Mercury enters Sagittarius and Venus tracks back into Libra during this retrograde period.  Before changing signs, Venus opposes Uranus and relationship status changes, strong disagreements or just plain not knowing where you stand are common effects. Scorpio and Taurus, relationships and partners or decisions you must make together could be quite unpredictable right now. Leo Moon can bring some playfulness and the spirit of dressing up into Halloween festivities. Today's color is Orange.

Thursday: Leo Moon opposite Mars and square to Jupiter. Things that need to be worked out, like problems and differences of opinions, will be obvious and strong. Wear Red.

Friday: Virgo Moon 1:48 am EDT may bring more willingness to help, resolve problems and find agreement. Mercury square to the Moon says explore more than one plan and try not to overthink. Let go of control where you know it's futile. Today's color is Brown.

Saturday: Virgo Moon opposite Neptune and in harmony with Pluto. Exercise both your body and mind. Channel energy or stress into imaginative writing or creating. Today's color is Navy Blue.
