May 25th to May 31st, 2015: Mercury Retrograde in Gemini

Monday: Virgo Moon

Virgo Moon starts at 4:52 am ET and squares Saturn in Sagittarius and later, the Sun in Gemini. Duty calls. Messes need to be cleaned up and the air cleared. Conflicts about responsibilities, honesty or lack thereof arise. Venus squares Uranus and Mars squares Neptune. Relationship status changes may be sudden or more public. Mars in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces are both unpredictable, though this can fuel creativity too.  Today's color is blue.

Tuesday: Virgo Moon

 This Virgo Moon is focused on problem solving. Temporary fixes help during Mercury retrograde until more permanent decisions are made. Miscommunication creates issues that might be unnecessary. Aim for clarity and avoid that. Pluto and Venus align with the Moon today for subtle approaches, nurturing influences, and attention to love and family.  From 10:21 pm to 8:42 pm ET on Wednesday, the Moon is void of course. Today's color is black.

Wednesday: Libra Moon

The Moon's transition time, void of course, ends at 8:42 pm ET. This long period of time isn't best for major announcements or discussions with one exception. If you're looking for forgiveness, for something to slip by or be let go easily, this might be your day. Mercury retrograde meets Mars in Gemini which has the potential to really muck certain things up, stir arguments, and contribute to nasty misunderstandings or battles of words.  Be careful how you speak and tread today if you want peace.  Libra Moon seeks harmony once it's here. Today's color is lavender.

Thursday: Libra Moon

The Libra Moon influence is social, friendly, and concerned maybe more with how things look than what's underneath.  Present yourself well, share information, be customer service oriented, and benefit from networking. The planets that stirred things up yesterday align with the Moon today, reminding how quickly feelings, information and attitudes can change.  The Moon and Sun harmonize for clearer head, ability to see things from two perspectives, and more ease generally.  Today's color is yellow.

Friday: Mercury square Neptune

The Moon is in Libra, void of course beginning at 4:20 pm until 5:34 am Saturday. Be skeptical, ask questions and move through transactions and interactions with care and awareness as Mercury retrograde squares Neptune. A deceptive, misleading influence is at work.  The Moon's interactions with other planets are varied. Take things as they come and don't be foolishly trusting. The Moon and Venus square and the people closest to us may need attention and assurance. Today's color is light blue.

Saturday: Scorpio Moon

The Moon moves to Scorpio at 5:34 am, but the strongest influence is the Sun and Mercury retrograde's meeting in Gemini. Scorpio is a sign that can hang on to the past, and the retrograde tends to bring people back into our lives and feelings back into our midst.  The positive side is reconnections with friends or family and possibly forgiveness and peacemaking. In air sign Gemini, we tend to express ideas and thoughts and have conversations.  The Scorpio Moon has a less forgiving nature and could cause us to latch on to the negative emotions associated with the past. Today's color is indigo.

Sunday: Sun square Neptune

Neptune is in harmony with the Moon and square to the Sun.  Neptune influences romantic notions and can relate to "rose colored glasses".  The Moon and Neptune create a romantic, creative atmosphere. The Sun and Neptune challenge our judgement. Don't get sucked in by someone or something that seems appealing at first.  Caution is king during Mercury retrograde.  Water sports and locations are favored with Scorpio Moon and Neptune in Pisces, water signs. Today's color is blue.

May 18th to 24th, 2015: Mercury retrograde in Gemini, New Moon in Taurus

Monday: Mercury retrograde, New Moon

There's a push forward and a pull gently back, at once, as Taurus New Moon arrives on the day Mercury becomes retrograde for three weeks. There are a couple of ways to go about things. One is to begin something you can adapt or adjust later.  Taurus is a sign that leans toward committing fully, however during this New Moon, begin gently, tip toe in, or put something off until mid June if you can wait.  Whatever you do, avoid deciding under pressure or forcing anything that isn't happening organically.  New Moon is 12:13 am ET, Mercury retrograde begins at 9:49 pm ET. The Moon shifts to Gemini at 5:27 am. Mars and Saturn are active with the Moon, also having opposing influences. Today is all over the place! Stay centered and use flexible thinking. Today's color is white.

Tuesday: Gemini Moon

Gemini Moon meets retrograde Mercury. Effects include revisiting old business, rethinking plans, and reconnecting with those you've been out of touch with. Some of that may take you by surprise. Jupiter is in harmony with the Moon, influencing our ability to create and be expressive. Announcements will be made. Some may be reversed in the not so distant future. Take things lightly if possible. Be skeptical. The Moon is void of course at 1:57 pm ET until 9:56 am Wednesday. It's a good social time and not very focused generally. Take care of transportation plans and needs. Get the car checked out and don't neglect simple things that need to be done. Today's color is yellow. 

Wednesday: Cancer Moon

This is a good day to nurture others and also take good care of yourself. The tendency is for energy level to be lower. Get rest or get outside. Shift sluggishness with easy exercise. Try not to force things. Care for plants, animals, people, and home. Prepare and enjoy good food. Think simple. Today's color is light blue.

Thursday: Sun in Gemini

The Moon is in Cancer, void of course from 8:36 pm to 5:42 pm on Friday (ET). Sun moves to Gemini at 5:45 am for the final phase of spring. The planet most influential is Venus, opposing Pluto and meeting the Moon in Cancer. Venus represents beauty, harmony, love and togetherness. Cancer is favored, and Capricorn receives the benefit in long term love and partnerships. Pisces, this relates to love, luck and also your children. Venus opposite Pluto may reveal another side to someone you know very well already. For Pisces and Virgo, friendship could turn to love now.  Pluto may also show the shadow side of a partner. Whatever is happening this week, go about it gently and don't rush.  Today's color is pink.

Friday: Void of Course Moon

The Void of Course Moon and Mercury retrograde indicate that slowing things down, putting off actions that can be taken in a few weeks instead, and keeping calm is the way to go. Routine work and tasks are the order of the day.  The Sun is opposite Saturn and this could become argumentative or pressure filled.  If you've agreeing to something, can you leave a loophole, set an end date to a trial period, or agree to revisit before making it permanent? Leo Moon arrives at 5:42 pm ET and makes for s fun evening out. Celebrations and reunions are nicely timed this weekend. Today's color is purple. 

Saturday: Leo Moon

The Moon is in harmony with Mars and retrograde Mercury. Old friends get back together. Adventure to places you've enjoyed in the past.  Parties and events involve long time collaborators or acquaintances as well as people you were once closer to.  It's a great day or night for festivities. Today's color is gold.

Sunday: Void of Course Moon

Void Moon starts at 6:50 am ET and is in Leo. The Virgo Moon arrives Monday at 4:52 am. Today is lucky, with the Moon meeting Jupiter, and meant to be relaxed with no important business during void of course Moon and Mercury retrograde, both. Surprising changes or news is likely with Uranus in harmony with the Moon. The wild card is the reaction these announcements or events evoke. Today's color is red.

May 11th to 17th, 2015: Mars in Gemini

See Yoga Schedule on my blog and at where you can also get this forecast. 

Monday: Mars in Gemini

The Moon is void of course in Aquarius from 6:36 am ET until 10:53 pm. Mars moves into Gemini at 10:40 pm ET. The Moon and Uranus align for a morning or day that's different from the usual. The Sun and Mars square the Moon today which often indicates challenge. Ideals and ideas are questioned with these squares. Decisions you thought were over could come up for further discussion. Void of course Moon isn't the most favorable time to make agreements. Concentrate on the simple things today. Pisces Moon later, square to Mars newly in Gemini, makes tonight's plans unreliable. Adjust accordingly. Overall, having few expectations will make the day and night easier. Today's color is green.

Tuesday: Pisces Moon

Pisces Moon interacts with several planets and a variety of influences are at play.  Move fluidly and creatively through conversations, adjustments, and circumstances as they unfold.  Communication about business and personal plans could be a source of tension as Saturn and Mercury square the Moon. Act on travel and educational plans and agreements now if possible. We are closing in on Mercury retrograde. Work through something, even if it's a sensitive topic. Venus in Cancer aligns with the Moon for sensitivity and emotional connection. Stay in tune with the person or people who matter. Really listen and be attentive.  Today's color is pink.

Wednesday: Pisces Moon

The Moon is waning in Pisces, in harmony with Pluto and the Sun. Blend creative and practical thinking and action.  The New Moon is next Monday and you can prepare by rethinking and being open to change.  Void of course Moon is 12:55 pm ET to 1:13 am tomorrow.  During those hours, relax, dream, create and don't put pressure on others.  Today's color is white.

Thursday: Aries Moon

 At 1:13 am ET the Moon shifts to Aries. Mars and Mercury in Gemini increase the impulse to take any kind of action. The pre-Mercury retrograde phase is a bit of a gray area where long term decisions are involved.  Lean toward well though out decisions rather than suddenly moving on something you're unsure of. A trial basis is welcome vs a solid commitment. Saturn in Sagittarius urges wisdom and advice as well as learning through experience. Saturn challenges us to grow through trial and error, and in Sagittarius this relates to higher education and travels.  If you need to send your acceptance for college, for example, this is probably the last recommended day until after June 11th. Today's color is red.

Friday: Mars opposite Saturn

Today looks quite challenging with a void of course Moon beginning 8:04 am and Saturn opposite Mars in Gemini forcing issues.  It's not a good time to act under pressure, yet situations may arise that seem urgent today. Ask yourself if the urgency is real. Be aware of the people and other influences pushing decisions.  Make sure you know what you're agreeing to. There's more but that's the most important aspect of the day.  Competition may feel fierce in any arena. Today's color is yellow.

Saturday: Taurus Moon, Venus trine Neptune

At 3:02 am ET the Moon crosses over to Taurus, a sign of longevity and loyalty. The Moon aligns with both Venus and Neptune and those two harmonize also. Creative, romantic, sensual influences play out. Soften your approach. Enjoy music, art, good food and all the pleasures of life. Today's color is lavender.

Sunday: Taurus Moon

Today's Moon squares Jupiter in Leo and aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. A realistic, practical way of looking at situations is helpful. See what you can take from the visionary stage to real, tangible results. So close to Mercury retrograde, be cautious with big decisions.  The New Moon is overnight, and this is the time to reconsider and revisit. Today's color is green.

Monday: Full Moon in Scorpio

The Full Moon was exact at 11:42 pm ET on Sunday night. This Scorpio Moon is very much in affect. Jupiter also squares the Sun and Moon, in Leo/Taurus/Scorpio which is a push for growth and may come in the form of direct challenge. Meanwhile the Moon opposes Mars in Taurus. This action in fixed signs brings strong energy for confronting problems and requires strength and persistence.  Where people or situations are unyielding, patience is called for. Full Moons bring completions, and this one requires letting go of a grudge or an idea held on to for too long.  If it's obvious something is over, it will feel like a relief to accept that and move on.  Void Moon begins at 9:49 pm ET. Today's color is dark red.

Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon

Sag Moon hits at 7:13 am ET and meets Saturn at 12:38 pm. Make wise choices around travel and educational plans or get advice in those areas today. Mentally, we'll tend to be philosophical. Weigh risks carefully before jumping into anything. A bit of restraint is called for, by Saturn.  Mercury is opposite the Moon. Expect honest talk, possibly including truth that hurts. Criticism may not be taken well. Communicate with care.  Today's color is black.

Wednesday: Sun trine Pluto

The Sagittarius Moon aligns with Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries for a fiery, action oriented day. Things may go easier and the Moon is far enough past Full to allow tension to dissipate. The Sun in harmony with Pluto helps with decisions, constructive plans, and tangible outcomes.  Today is expressive and not as stern or unfeeling as the past two days might have been. Today's color is red.

Thursday: Venus in Cancer

Venus moves to Cancer at 6:52 pm ET. This is good news for Cancer, helpful to Capricorn and Pisces in love and relationship, and positive for Libra with career plans and showcases of any kind. In the sign of family and home, Venus favors nesting, cleanups, and redecorating living spaces for the rest of the month.  The Moon is in Sagittarius until 2:16 pm and only void of course for minutes before moving to Capricorn then.  Venus and the Moon are opposite for much ado about love and emotions. Today's color is pink.

Friday: Capricorn Moon

The Capricorn Moon engages with the Sun and a few other planets for varied influences today. The bottom line seems to be the theme, in terms of both finances and getting things done. A no nonsense attitude is called for. Confidence emanates as the Sun and Moon align in earth signs. Use your personal power. Today's color is yellow.

Saturday: Aquarius Moon

Capricorn Moon for accomplishing some early weekend business, and then the Moon is void from 4:35 to 7:22 pm ET. Mercury squares Neptune so make sure information you're acting on is factual and honest.  Aquarius Moon at 7:22 pm for events, gatherings and community tonight and Sunday.  Today's color is blue.

Sunday: Aquarius Moon

The Moon and Mercury are in harmony for discussing, writing, studies, and coming up with great ideas.  Jupiter is across from the Moon stimulating the extrovert and optimist in all of us.  Logical thinking is favored. Technological upgrades and purchases are recommended now, before Mercury retrograde gets any closer (May 19th to June 11th). Happy Mother's Day. Today's color is turquoise.

April 27th to May 3rd, 2015: Full Moon in Scorpio

Monday: Leo/Virgo Moon

The Leo Moon squares Mercury in Taurus at 10:12 am and is then void of course until Virgo Moon hits at 9:07 pm ET. The Moon square Mercury brings creative thinking to the forefront. In places of disagreement, be more open minded, listen to each other and find permanent solutions. These are fixed signs so once agreement is reached, we'll tend to stick with the plan.  During void of course Moon, aim to be more light, playful, and heart centered.  Bouncy energy may bother some and resonate with others. Kids and some adults will find it hard to concentrate, so try to keep tasks and learning easygoing and fun.  Virgo Moon is good for late night studies and organizing. The Moon squares Saturn overnight adding even more focus on structure.  It might be easy to get things done today if you're relaxed and more difficult if you're unsure or tense. Today's color is brown.

Tuesday: Virgo Moon

The Moon squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Learning, training, and education in general is in the spotlight. Commit to a program of study or agree to take the next step in training or certification of any kind if you feel ready.  The Moon and Sun are in harmony for earth sign things, like garden plans, landscaping and building.  It's a doer's day, so go beyond the thought process and produce. Neptune opposes the Moon tonight which is good for productive dreaming, imaginative homework, or a movie after a long day. It's not the most trustworthy though, so share information carefully.  Be flexible but not to the point of bending over backwards in a situation that doesn't deserve so much accommodation. Today's color is navy blue.

Wednesday: Sun trine Neptune

The Moon is Full in Scorpio on Sunday. This week, move toward completions of all kinds.  Virgo Moon trine Pluto and Mars should help keep us on track with projects and plans. Pluto may unearth an issue or two to be confronted constructively. Act on things that have been overlooked or neglected with the energy of Mars in physical Taurus. The Moon squares Venus in Gemini. How we communicate plays a significant part in outcomes today. Venus relates to relationship and both Virgo and Gemini, the signs involved, relate to words. Manage what you say or write and how you phrase things.  Restrain yourself from strong criticism or assumptions if you want to maintain peace, love and friendship or collegial relationships in the workplace.  The Sun and Neptune are just the right mix of water and earth, add a spiritual, connected aspect to the day, and might fuel both compassion and romance as needed. Today's color is green.

Thursday: Mercury in Gemini, Libra Moon

Moving void of course 8:23 am to 10:03 am, the Moon then shifts to Libra.  Decisions may be pending or required early today as Mercury and the Moon align at 8:23. Give your word outside those void of course times.  Use early morning to process and weigh things out.  Libra Moon aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius. Intelligence is today's theme. The world of ideas, thoughts, and possibilities is activated. Feed your brain, your spirit and your body in healthy ways.  Read books and consult other resources.  In the body, Sagittarius relates to the liver and Libra to the kidneys. Drink lots of water (add lemon!) and purify your body in whatever ways you choose. We're moving into Full Moon time, and feeling good helps with Full Moon moods.  Mercury moves to Gemini, another sign of the mind, at 10 pm. Mercury in Gemini is very communicative, relates to siblings, and ideally gives us a way with words.  Today's color is yellow.

Friday: Libra Moon

Expect a variety of influences on this Libra Moon day.  Jupiter favors friendships and good decisions. Pluto and Uranus stir feelings and create unusual or surprising circumstances.  The Full Moon warmup is here for Sunday night.  Libra Moon traits include judiciousness, balance, and ability to compromise. Keep these in consideration as you move through a potentially busy Friday on all fronts.  Keep your wits about you if you're out tonight or traveling in unfamiliar areas. Libra Moon can keep us too much in our heads. Find balance and stay grounded. Today's color is lavender.

Saturday: Void of Course Moon in Libra, Moon trine Venus

With so much void of course Moon time, don't allow yourself to feel pressured. The Full Moon is a time of decisions, completions, news and deadlines. However, void Moon is not the best time for a big expenditure, spontaneous risk, or major decision unless you've truly done your homework on these things.  Know what you're getting into or receiving for your money. Relationships can have happy, ease filled time on days like this.  On the other hand though, Mercury and Saturn oppose tomorrow and the weekend is filled with serious considerations. Full Moon is Sunday at 11:42 pm ET and the feeling and events linger into the early days of the week. Scorpio Moon moves in at 9:47 pm. Today's color is pink.

Sunday: Full Moon in Scorpio

The Moon is Full in Scorpio at 11:42 pm ET. Everything is magnified, and some things may feel bigger or more overwhelming than need be. Try to keep feelings in check, especially jealousy, regret, or vengeance.  Allow for some quiet meditation or rest. Remember under this fixed sign Full Moon that things do change. You're not stuck, even if it seems so in this moment.  Make long term decisions if you're ready. It may be hard to change things you agree to now.  It's a solid time before Mercury retrograde (May 19th-June 11th), so as long as you plan to be in for the long haul, go with a promise, contract or major announcement. Mercury opposes Saturn in two very different signs from Scorpio, Gemini and Sagittarius. This relates to wise decisions and also learning and growing through challenge and experience.  It's a powerful Full Moon with some vibrations from last month's April 4th eclipse. New developments in ongoing stories are to be expected. Seal a deal or put something to rest.  Today's color is gold.
