Robin's Zodiac Yoga on Congress Square Park Portland 7:30-8:30 am Thursday (free!)
All my other classes have subs this week. Enjoy your August days! Robin
Monday: Moon opposes Uranus
Libra Moon opposite Uranus and will be void of course beginning at 11:47 am EDT. And a quick check in with planets: Mercury, Venus, Jupiter in Virgo, Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius. Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn will be around a long time and change less frequently than planets closer to us and the Sun. Saturn spends two years and is in Sagittarius until late 2017. Saturn moves direct this week, on Saturday. Keep justice in the forefront. Lean away from urgency and emotional reactiveness. Think clearly, and even if you have to make a quick decision or response, take a moment and draw upon logical Libra sensibility. I suspect there will be many distractions, some of them fun and some unwelcome. Decide what needs your attention and what's worth dropping everything for. Today's color is red.
Tuesday: Moon sextile Venus and trine Neptune
The Moon shifts to Scorpio at 12:51 am EDT and aligns with Venus and Neptune today. Love and romance are favored with Moon in passionate, sexy Scorpio and two planets that help us tune into pleasure. Be creative and refine details. It's a day for lovers and artists. Business could be questionable with Neptune's deceptive influence. Today's color is indigo blue.
Wednesday: Mercury trine Pluto, 2nd Quarter Moon
Scorpio Moon takes us through the midpoint between New and Full Moon. This time is meant for progress, seeing results, and sticking with good decisions. Be honest with yourself as the Moon and Mercury both align with Pluto. Work diligently on a priority as the Moon squares the Sun, indicating effort is needed. Privacy is s theme, and you may notice that people around you need quiet and opportunity to focus. Respect that. Today's color is black.
Thursday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon
Void of course Moon is 1:22 am to 1:24 pm EDT. Moon moves to Sagittarius and meets Mars at 9:04 am EDT. Sagittarius is a sign of movement, and today is for taking action. The challenge is to act without trampling others along the way. Insensitivity could be an issue today. Sagittarius Moon time equals adventures and new experiences. Do something out of the ordinary today. With physical challenges, take care and safety precautions while Mars is a strong influence. Today's color is red.
Friday: Moon conjunct Saturn
Take a decisive approach as the Moon and Saturn meet. This could be a final pass at something that's been in the works or on hold. Tomorrow Saturn is direct. Form an action plan to be implemented very soon. Get travel arrangements and educational plans in motion. It might take a few more days for some of this to come fully together, but today is a good day to give it your energy and attention. Neptune and Venus square the Moon. Don't be too gullible or fall for the same old excuse from someone who disappoints you. Hold the line where you need to. Today's color is white.
Saturday: Saturn Direct, Venus square Saturn
Saturn retrograde gave us opportunities to restructure, yet may have increased limitations or held us back from certain actions. Waiting is sometimes wise. The planet of wisdom, challenge and maturity stations direct at 5:50 am in Sagittarius. The first order of business comes from Venus, planet of love, harmony and relationship. Issues around freedom, structure, and shared responsibility come up for discussion or resolution. Note any philosophical changes you've undergone recently, especially in terms of the roles you're willing to and want to assume. Sagittarius Moon, void of course at 1:37 pm EDT. Today's color is pink.
Sunday: Venus opposes Neptune, Capricorn Moon
Capricorn Moon time starts at 12:11 am. Feel momentum and continue progress with priorities as there's a Full Moon ahead, on Thursday. The Moon works well with Neptune and Venus, which helps mediate feelings as those two oppose. Capricorn Moon isn't overly emotional. The positive is healthy detachment and the downside is ignoring feelings. A happy middle ground is called for. Acknowledge your own or others' moods, emotions and hopes while keeping sensible limits. Doing something about the problem, if there is one, will feel good today. Take tangible, realistic actions. Wear green.
