Weekly December 28

Thanks for 10 years! Robins Zodiac Zone's original site went up in July of 1999 and in the year 2000 moved to www.robinszodiaczone.com and became a feature on WCYY Alternative Mornings! The radio forecast will be 10 in May of 2010. I'm going to have a party! Not to be planned until after Mercury retrograde though-right. Peace!

Monday
Mercury and Mars are retrograde so expect the last days of the year and the beginning of a new decade to be slow moving.  Act in that same sort of way, methodically and logically.  Returning to the past, healing old wounds, revisiting alll kinds of business and returning to activities and projects you left behind are in the forecast for a few weeks ahead.  There's no need to be in a hurry and we shouldn't let others push or rush us. The Moon is in Taurus and today is about pacing. Venus and Pluto meet in Capricorn which is a reality check in love and relationship.  In love we'll tend to gravitate toward safe and secure over new and adventurous.  It's a time of settling in and maybe reverting to old patterns, for better or not.  There'll be a focus on the practical like dividing of repsonsibilities, getting finances in order and just managing life together.  It might seem kind of boring or stagnant to some but to others could be grounding.  Today has a number of aspects between Moon and planets and  a void of course Moon from 12:34 to 8:13 pm. It will be hard to follow a schedule or rely on plans.  Taurus and Scorpio in particualr may have a difficult time with this and for Scorpio the commute or travel is likely to be affected.  Cancer there's a lot of relationship goings on right now, possibly more than you want to handle and Mercury retrograde is going to encourage you to shake things out by the end of January or so.  Many of us will be attending to old business or shaky decisions or actions we took around September of this year when Mercury had his last retrograde.  The Moon moves to Gemini tonight and debates are likely.  It will be hard to get away from discussions we'd like to avoid and from the overly talkative too.  Wear yellow.

Tuesday
The Moon is in busy, mentally active Gemini.  It's a day to work and think smart and it's best not to over analyze.  Gemini sometimes has trouble with this, but getting to the point and doing what has to be done would be a good idea today.  Make sure decisions have some flexibility with Mercury retrograde now.  We need to be able to change our minds or our course easily when new information surfaces.  Things scheduled now are more likely to be cancelled or postponed. Pencil in plans.  It's not a good time to make announcements or break news. Wait until mid January if possible.  Work behind the scenes today.  Venus the planet of love is active in Capricorn now, and today Venus and taskmaster Saturn form a square. We might find love and relationship to be just alot of work now.  Nagging and making demands or ultimatums is in the forecast but it's not really a good idea now.  It's just what's likely.  Saturn in Libra is affecting many couples and will be for a good long while.  So yeah, relationships will seem restrictive and less fun on days that Saturn is involved with Venus.  The best we can do is try to appease, avoid drama and be fair.  We are warming up for a Full Moon on Thursday, New Year's Eve, and it's positioned to be very emotional and oppositional. Anxiety is likely. Do things to de-stress. Tonight is social and also good for study and mental tasks.  Wear white.

Wednesday
Gemini Moon is in harmony with Mars in Leo. Now Mars is retrograde, and though we talk about it less than Mercury retro, it does have an effect. Our energy levels, physical stamina, and all that is masculine is ruled by Mars. In Leo, performers and entertainers of all kinds relate.  If it feels like you need to change your stage persona or how you represent in the public eye, you may be considering this well into the new year, possibly trying out new things. Mars is the rock star planet, and in Leo is very flamboyant and expressive. Try on a costume and see what fits this winter.  Today is very much about entertaining and humor, storytelling, showing off, and trying to recreate something. It's a natural time to revert to what's worked in the past. Learning new material may be slow or difficult now. The Moon is void of course from 3:29 to 9:25 pm, then moves to Cancer.  Tonight is ruled by what feels secure and comfortable. The Moon is nearly Full. Wear light blue today.

Thursday
On the last day and night of the year and decade the Moon is Full with a lunar eclipse in a sentimental sign, Cancer, and Mercury is retrograde across the zodiac in Capricorn. Venus and Pluto also oppose this Full Moon, a Blue Moon. Though eclipses tend to force rapid change, there's more looking back than ahead as the new decade begins.  In fact, the year is meant to start very slowly and might even seem uneventful or static. We need to be patient right now.  Lunar eclipses often relate to the girls and women in our lives, and with this one you migh reestablish a relationship. Cancer is the sign of Mothers and home and relates to our ancestors too. The Full Moon is defiant and oppositional, extreme and emotional. It's a very sentimental, sensitive, and defensive day.  It's not a good day to confront issues or push matters.  Home and family are Cancer's domain, and staying close to home is favored over major travel and friends more than large parties.  Expect to hear from long lost friends, relatives, and people you've cared alot about even if you've lost touch.  The Moon opposes Mercury retrograde overnight and we have to choose our words and our battles very carefully. Misunderstandings are highly likely. Today's color is silver.

Friday
The Moon is void of course from 10:43 am to 9:41 pm EST. As far as bad judgment calls, today takes a Mercury retrograde prize so move very deliberately or not at all!  The first day of the year and decade is best for rest, relaxation, routine, and reconnecting.  Try not to start new things, make promises, or have important conversations.  Mercury is just opposite the just past Full Moon on a lunar eclipse! It's like an astrological bender!  Don't believe or be persuaded to make a decision you're not 100% ready for.  This is a very changeable and unpredictable day. Stay in the safety zone in every situation. More Full Moon eclipse news is likely and sure to be unusual.  Cancer and Capricorn, relationships and your place in the world are in flux and if you can hold on a decision until after January 15th, do that! The Moon to Leo tonight will relieve some of the Full Moon pressure.  Wear purple today.

Saturday
The Moon is in Leo, relatively uncomplicated or affected by other planets today. Leo Moon time is meant for fun, socializing and practicing or performing.  The Moon and Saturn dance a little bit, but Saturn is reserved helping organize that fiery Leo energy.  Aside from Leo Moon, we're still adjusting or in transition with this week's eclipse and Full Moon and Mercury and Mars retrograde. As much as possible keep things simple and impermanent now. Mercury is retrograde until January 15th. Make plans you can change if need be, avoid commitments you can't get out of easily.  Make time for fun today and tonight. Wear gold.

Weekly December 21

Monday
Today is the Winter Solstice, falling exactly at 12:47 pm EST as the Sun shifts to Capricorn.  Capricorn is sort of like Father Time, ruled by Saturn the planet of wisdom.  Also, time shifts now as daylight begins to return slowly.  A slow, patient approach is a good idea today with a long void of course Moon from 7:53 am to 6:42 pm.  Don't allow yourself to be rushed or pushed.  There's lots of Aquarius energy with the Moon, Neptune and Jupiter in a massive conjunction there.  While Aquarius is outgoing,  there's a tendency to daydream and wish and possibly escape the realities that bother us now.  Try not to act on impulse and to stay rational even if daydreams pull you in.  The Moon is in harmony with Venus and simple adventures and interactions with friends are a happy way to spend the day.  Major decisions are not recommended. Buy yourself time-like a month!  Tonight Venus and the Sun brighten our outlook and the Pisces Moon begins a sentimental journey through the holiday week.  Reconnections with friends work well tonight.  It will be hard to focus on tasks.  Music and dancing are good for the soul tonight! Wear light blue.

Tuesday

The Moon is in Pisces uncomplicated by angles with other planets.  Pisces Moon time is not the most highly motivated but it's meant to be a mellow day.  Relax into things that have to be done and do them in your own time. It's a very good day to be on vacation and take things easy.  In these days just preceding Mercury and Mars retrogrades leave plenty of room to change your mind.  It's not a very reliable time for commitment.  Be flexible and expect to make some schedule changes in the days coming up.  Capricorn, Mercury will retrograde in your sign so you're best off penciling things in and replying with an "I'll get back to ya".  On the other hand, it's a great time to really reconnect with family and friends from the past. Sagittarius, you need to be especially careful with money and spending.  You may need to make more gift exchanges and returns this year.  Tonight, for all signs,  is about close friends and smaller gatherings where you know everyone in the room! Wear green today.

Wednesday
The Moon is in Pisces working with Mercury in Capricorn adding a little bit more structure. Planning, preparing, and reconnecting with each other is in the forecast.  Make flexible plans knowing that mercury's retrograde may change things.  It starts officially on Saturday the 26th but we're feeling it now.  Also, get ready by making backups of files, spoies of important papers, and lists of things you can't forget to do.  Slow and easygoing is the best approach, but Mercury helps us organize and get things done on our own time table today.  Tonight is a little bit chaotic as the Moon meets Uranus. This is a monthly occurence that can feel like a Full Moon and Pisces is a very sensitive sign for the Moon, so be careful with feelings and watch out for overindulgence.  Drinks can catch up with us quickly and emotional situations can be exaggerated on a night like this.  Friends may show up unexpectedly too! Wear blue today.

Thursday
The Moon is void of course from 3:09 to 6:39 am. The strange, unusual and dreams states are particularly activated then. It's also a time to watch out for anything at all that could be unnerving, overly emotional, or accidental.  If you're partying late this week, be forewarned! The Moon moves to Aries for today and all of Christmas.  Today is spontaneous and full of energy!  It will be busy and fast paced and with the Sun meeting Pluto also highly philosophical and ambitious. Father Time is an appropriate symbol fot the Sun/Pluto meeting which adds a serious air and a feeling of respectful for elders.  A dose of maturity will be called for in some situations and avoiding the impulse of an Aries Moon might be a good idea if you're making a first impression or dealing with authority figures.  Relationships may be difficult with the Moon opposite Saturn and square to Venus.  A good talk with someone you consider wise or experienced may enlighten or clarify things.  Libra and Aries tread lightly in close relationships.  Libra, for you that means family interactions too.  Capricorn, it's a powerful Sun sign day!  Tonight, the Aries Moon lends itself to last minute plans, fireside talks, and lots of lights and sparkle!  Just remember to give respect where it's due.  Wear red.

Friday
Merry Christmas! The Moon is in Aries, and Venus moves into Capricorn. This is the last day before Mercury is officially retrograde for a few weeks, also in Capricorn.  Aside from being a holiday, today is very much about leadership.  Aries is the pioneer, leading us in new directions, and being willing to lead or learn is helpful today.  The Sun square to Saturn can bring up issues with parents and other authorities.  Trying to compromise or see the whole picture may not be easy. The Aries effect sometimes makes it hard to see beyond our own needs, so selfish or self centered-ness will be evident in certain situations.  Aries and Capricorn, there's alot of planetary energy in your signs, so you're likely to be a the center of all kinds of things.  Libra, you're also related as one of the 3 cardinal signs and are affected too.  Keeping the peace and a balance of power is today's challenge.  If you can do that, the Aries Moon can be fun and it's a good night for sports and games.  It's an active day so do more than sit around and eat! Aries Moon likes to play! Wear white.

Saturday
Mercury retrograde begins officially at 9:26 am though we'ver been experiencing the effects for over a week now.  The Moon squares Mercury in Aries and Capricorn overnight which makes power struggles likely. Both signs like to be in charge and to do things  without interference.  The boss may be difficult to deal with if you have to work today.  Miscommunication increases for all signs, and we also have a void of course Moon to contend with until 3:26 pm. It's not a day to have to rely on good judgement and there's a combination of stubbornness and impulsivity that makes today less than rational.  Tonight the Moon is in harmony with Venus and the Moon is in Taurus which is nicer generally.  Venus newly in Capricorn is practical in love, favors earth signs and also Cancers in long term relationships.  That helps a little bit Cancer since Mercury retrograde is also impacting your marriage or love life in a confusing way for a few weeks here.  Expect ups and downs and one day to be fine and the next to be dramatic.  Scorpio and Taurus old friends and ex lovers play a part in your life again during this retrograde. You may find yourself longing to return to the past.  Wear pink.


Sunday
Just to catch up, Mercury is now retrograde in Capricorn until mid January, and Venus is in that same sign.  Capricorn likes organization and a rational point of view, and those things may be hard to come by during these weeks.  This affects Cancer,Taurus, Scorpio and Capricorn relationships and social lives and Sagittarius and Gemini with business and financial dealings, Leo with usual routine and habits, and Aries with career and who ever you consider to be the boss.  Libra will need to work hard or relax about relationships at home and that includes both family and other roommates.  All of us need to leave room to change our minds about moves we make now.  It's not a good time for promises or definite expectations. It's best if you don't have to start a new job or sign legal papers, and it's best not to get married or form a new business partnership.  Put off things that can wait, but if great opportunities come along instead of passing on them just realize they will probably turn out different than you expect. Sometimes that's in your favor.  The Moon is in Taurus and it's a day of rearranging both furniture and plans.  Putting things back together is in the forecast.  Simple decisions should seem easy as the Moon and Sun cooperate.  Physical work and workouts are favored. With Mercury retrograde get back with old friends and back to good habits you slipped up on lately.  Wear blue.

Weekly December 14

Monday
The Moon moves to Sagittarius in harmony with Saturn in Libra. Getting organized around educational and social plans is in the forecast. It's a good day to apply for school or get an acceptance, register for classes or plan an event or gathering.  Scheduling travel also makes sense today.  The Sagittarius Moon's free spirit is given a little structure and we'll tend to commit to things we penciled in as possibilities.  We're just a week from the degrees Mercury will retrace so it's better to commit now than after the 20th.  The Sun is also in Sagittarius aligned with Jupiter in Aquarius for good luck! Sagittarius is the archer so take aim at something you've been hoping for.  Gemini, love and partnerships are favored. Capricorn, this could be an important planning day.  Aries, your future plans can benefit from a step you take or contact you make today or tomorrow. Wear purple today.

Tuesday
The Moon and Venus are close in Sagittarius, working well with Mars in Leo for a fiery, active day.  Motivation should come easily but if not team up with Sagittarius, Aries or Leo and work together.  Today is fun and competitive favoring games and sports. Both Leo and Sagittarius instigate, and breaking out of ruts and routines is in the forecast.  Fire signs should feel fortunate and willing to take a chance.  Aquarius, your relationships and friendships are in the forefront, and making new friends and other social plans is on the agenda for you.  Libra, family relationships and communication can improve now with a little effort.  Venus and Mars getting along is generally good for love and relationship and right now favors Aquarius, Gemini, Leo and Sagittarius most.  Saturn square to Pluto is today's difficulty and Capricorn and Libra and those with Libra or Capricorn rising or Moon signs are most affected.  This can be a harsh reality check and a message you haven't been taking care of things you're responsible for.  If you're about 27-30 years old this applies as part of your Saturn return time and you might be feeling the heat in cycles. Thew New Moon tomorrow means reconsider things and decide if a change of course is what you need. Wear red today.

Wednesday
The New Moon in Sagittarius at 7:02 am brings both lessons and opportunities this week.The Moon and Jupiter, Sagittarius's planetary ruler are working tightly together to open our minds to new experience and help us find ways to put our talents to good use. If there's a downside it's excessiveness.  Overindulgence is something to be reevaluated now.  The New Moon gies us a chance to trim the fat a little and adopt new habits, healthier attitudes, and a better attitude.  Sagittarius is a sign of honesty and facing fears is in the forecast. For some it'll be a time to stop running and escaping. That's where some of those Sagittarius lessons come into play! There's a long void of course Moon so shopping is one thing you may want to wait on, or save all receipts if you shop before 5:30 pm. Today is generous and, for Sagittarius and Aquarius especially, good fortune and lucky turns of events are likely.  Set goals and intentions and aim like the archer!  Tonight really put plans into action, stop procrastinating, and maybe go out and have some fun if other things are in order.  Remember Mercury retrograde is coming up quickly and now is a better time for big decicions, expensive purchases and progress in general. From 5:32 pm on, the Moon is in Capricorn meeting Pluto pushing us to accomplish and produce some results. Today's color is white.

Thursday
The Moon is in Capricorn, and this is a day to take action, show organization, and really get things done.  Venus and Mars also work together favoring our interactions with each other and increasing mutual understanding. More than this even, Mars and Venus create chemistry and attraction, especially for Leo and Sagittarius.  It's a great day to make a date or let someone know how you feel.  It's fun and full of energy and not overly emotional or too sentimental.  Balance work and play.  Today is meant to be simple, to the point, spontaneous and productive both.  Tonight is a date night or time to party if work is accomplished first! Wear pink!

Friday
The Moon and Mercury meet in Capricorn for organization and planning.  Today is the last day I recommend shopping for expensive or unreturnable items. Mercury retrogrades on the 26th but we are into the shadow degrees the planet will retrace.  Decide, take action, and have important conversations today before 3:07 pm if possible. The Moon moves void of course then.  How much we can get done will determine alot about our stress levels. Business accomplished by the end of the day is well timed.  The Moon and Uranus are ready to stir things up late in the day with changes, conflicts of interests and unanticipated events.  Tonight things could get a little bit crazier than expected.  If you're working late, stick to usual routines and take precautions and back up everything. We should all back up files and have systems for remembering where we put or file things now.  Wear black.

Saturday
The Moon is in Aquarius from 5:38 am through the weekend.  Aquarius Moon time will be creative, but unanticipated changes may be hard to deal with or adjust to.  Venus and Uranus are out of sync in Sagittarius and Pisces and relationship problems will be stubborn. Status changes are increased and we'll probably hear of break ups more than get togethers this weekend.  Don't let your friends down now. We need to know we belong as the Moon and Saturn align, and partners and best friends need to be able to rely on each other.  Let someone know you are there if they need you.  Try not to back out of plans.  Big gatherings and parties are favored with the Moon in the sign of community and friends.  Wear bright blue.

Sunday
Mars retrograde begins and we are in the shadow of Mercury retrograde. Reversals of all kinds become more likely and it's good if we can slow down, take off some pressure, and go with the flow.  Back up all your files and check ahead for any potential changes of time or other plans.  Double check dates and avoid missing appointments or engagements.  The Moon is in Aquarius directly opposite Mars causing conflicts of interest, debates, and the feeling of being on opposite sides.  Friendship situations might seem to require we take sides too.  Today could be uncomfortable that way. Aquarius is a loyal, fixed sign so choosing a side seems unnatural.  We may have more trouble understanding each other than usual. Aquarius and Leo may notice this alot, and Aries this is your ruling planet in the place of luck, love and creativity in your chart, so if you feel like things are going against you, take a step back and don't force it.  Luckily Venus and Jupiter help balance things out with some optimism and generosity.  Go where you feel accepted. Avoid conflicts and resist the temptation to argue.  Wear silver.

Weekly December 7

Monday
The Moon moves from Leo to Virgo at 2:05 pm EST. The void of course Leo Moon is happy go lucky but makes room for Mercury and Pluto to dominate, and I mean that word in it's full context. Power plays are in the forecast.  Communication involves important conversations that shouldn't be shrugged off. Planning becomes very important.  Serious issues need attention. The hidden emerges and we'll look for some resolution as things we thought we avoided or buried stare us in the face! If you somehow are immune to that meeting of the planets in Capricorn, the Leo Moon just wants to take it easy or work on creative projects this morning.  Who gets what is hard to predict! The Moon to Virgo in the afternoon activates the practical, productive streak in us.  The evening is about work and study, writing and working on finances or even getting holiday cards to chores done.  Wear black today.

Tuesday
It's a 4th quarter Moon in Virgo and today flexibility is key. Problem solving and reconsidering details is in the forecast. Leo and Aquarius will have paperwork or forms to fill out and money matters to consider. Both signs may also consider new employment or leaving their present position now. There's no need to be in a hurry today.  The most practical decisions are favored.  Cancer and Capricorn there's alot of to and from, travel and word to get out. Send invitations or submit a finished project now.  Gemini, work around the house will be very satisfying even if it's a challenge to get things the way you want them.  Sagittarius you are the career oriented one today and need to not lose focus there this week.  If you are not in a career yet, you need to take a leadership role in a group you belong to or with friends now.  There's no need to set things in stone today-get things done and leave some room to change if necessary.  Tonight is the same.  Work takes precedence over social plans. There's a lot of the word "maybe" floating around.  Wear brown.

Wednesday
There's a long void of course Moon from 5:04 am to 5:47 pm. The Moon in Virgo is opposite Uranus in Pisces as it begins, throwing today off balance, increasing the chances of change and surprises and bringing unanticipated news. How we react determines the kind of day ahead.  It's not a good time for big decisions or purchases however we might relax and make simple decisions more easily.  Stay a little bit in guard and don't be pressured today.  The Moon moves to Libra tonight, squares  powerful Pluto and approaches Saturn. So while we may want to relax and be with friends, go out and have fun, there's a serious tone and plenty of reminders about the things we're responsible for.  The more we've fulfilled obligations the better tonight.  Wear gray.

Thursday
The Moon is in Libra square to Mercury in Capricorn early in the day.  Mercury rules all our plans, conversations, and mental processes.  Decision making and compromise may not be easy today, but if you're willing to be persistent and agreeable it can be done.   Being fair and looking for harmony is favored over pushing your agenda at someone else's expense.  Power plays are in the forecast this week so it may be a struggle to hold your ground.  Half way or no way for Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries today. As the day goes on the Moon harmonizes with Venus and the Sun with Mars giving us energy and creating better feelings between us. Tonight the Sagittarius Sun and Mars in Leo practically assure fun and events are well timed!  It's a generous aspect too.  Wear red.

Friday
The Moon is in Libra, void of course after 12:44 pm. Shopping appeals to us and is favored with the Libra Moon, but our best judgment on purchases comes early in the day. Libra rules our appearance, so it's a good day for new clothes, a haircut, or new style. Make your best first impression.  The Moon works with Jupiter, Neptune and the Sun so we'll tend to see the bright side of things, be more forgiving and generous, and open to new people and experiences.  It's a good day for a holiday shopping trip and relaxing or fun times with friends this afternoon. Mixing business with pleasure is better than all business today. Tonight the void of course Moon is good for parties and plans, but be careful of your car keys, wallet and other things since we tend to lose track more easily under these conditions. The Moon moves to Scorpio at 11:31 pm. Wear pink.

Saturday
The Moon is in Scorpio for the weekend. Scorpio Moon tends to hold on tightly and this weekend may be sentimental. In fact we may long for things to be the way they used to be or to reconnect with lovers and close friends from the past.  The Scorpio Moon works with Mercury for planning, creativity and productivity in general.  Venus in Sagittarius is working for freedom and understanding in love and relationships, but this Scorpio Moon can be jealous and possessive.  Taurus and Scorpio may be feeling some strain in relationship while Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius will tend to go Venus's way and be out mostly to enjoy life and have fun.  Today's color is maroon.

Sunday
The Scorpio Moon is out of sorts today, square to planets in Aquarius including Neptune which adds to feelings of distrust. Things may seem needlessly difficult and people around us may dig their heels in and refuse to budge. Opinions will be strong, and we won't admit our mistakes very readily.  The fixed signs may have the most difficult time with each other-that's Leo, Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius.  If you're dealing with those signs today realize that pushing or trying to control things won't get you far.  Taurus may be the exception, but may get the brunt of criticism or act unrealistically.  If you manage a smooth day with no arguments or debates today you may be in the minority!  Easy does it. Wear indigo blue.
