Monday: Solar Eclipse Taurus

The Taurus Moon arrives at 10:23 am after a 27 hour void of course Moon. Get feet back on the ground as hands and mind need to get right to the business of the day. Any void of course Moon forgetfulness, slacking or purposeless anxiety must go! Taurus Moon values stability and resourcefulness. Preparations for openings, presentations and any kind of beginning take priority along with hands on work like construction or outdoor work. Taurus is a sign of landscapers, builders, and farmers. In these hours before New Moon, do what you can to plant seeds for growth and prosperity of any kind. Solar clipses mark strong sometimes sudden beginnings, and this one in Taurus brings news of what's moving in for the long haul.  It's not easy to reverse changes initiated during Taurus Moon. Be intentional and promise only what you can stand by. It's a good day to enjoy the fruits of labors, move into the next phase of a project, or ground in simple tasks. Today's color is pink.

Tuesday: Solar Eclipse Taurus

The eclipse New Moon is at 2:14 am EDT near Mercury, supported by Pluto and Jupiter and approximately opposite Saturn. The opposition and involvement of Saturn retrograde is the stubborn aspect where blocks crop up in situations otherwise ripe for change and long term resolution. Even if there is still one thing holding up the works, consider the blessing of Jupiter in Cancer for healing and family matters as well as home related buildng and expansion and work with all the support that's available and offered in those areas especially. Also Pluto in Capricorn gives the word for letting go and leaving ghosts and shadows in the past.  Since Saturn is in Scorpio, matters involving sexuality, fertility, addiction, and emotions like jealousy or resentfulness may be the hardest to break through during this New Moon.  News is nearly always surprising with an eclipse. Some anticipated changes may suddenly have reason to go much more quickly. Think beyond the here and now since Taurus is all about follow through and loyalty and relying on your word.  Today's color is white

Wednesday: Taurus to Gemini Moon, Mercury sextile Jupiter
Mercury and Jupiter are ready to take action on ideas and things that have been discussed. Expansion plans, family relationships, and opening minds to change are Mercury and Jupiter's mission this week. Aries and Gemini may put this in a business context. The New Moon in Taurus is your impetus for a solid employment change, Aries. Gemini, yours may be more in the works and the learning and planning goes on now for a future shift regarding money and work. Leo, all this Taurus energy is fueling your career and opportunity may seem to come out of the blue though if you think about it, this is where everything has been leading. The eclipse puts a push on and Leo, you are the career star in your field. Cancer and Taurus, Mercury and Jupiter in your signs favor reliable collaborations, loyalty of friends, and good signs for communication, abundance and good news overall. A solar eclipse this week brings changes with Leos, Taurus, Scorpio, and boys and men in our lives, especially fathers who may be ready to move or announce other news of life changes. The Moon is void of course 11:53 am to 4:58 pm EDT. Check your calendar and prevent a missed meeting or appointment. The Gemini Moon tonight is social & scatters our focus as we're pulled in more than one direction. Today's color is yellow

Thursday: Gemini Moon

Today will be wildly creative for some and incredibly scattered in a way that makes others nervous. Gemini Moon squares Neptune and artistic differences might come up even within your own  mind! Seeing things two ways, the mind playing tricks, or trying to reconcile dualities is in the forecast with that energy in mutable signs that can't always settle on or be married to one way of seeing or doing.  The Moon also aligns with Uranus, rebellious and inventive, and with Mars in Libra somewhat held up and representing places we can't move forward especially in partnerships or legal situations.  It might be useful to find two things to concentrate on so if one is confusing or at a stalemate you can put your attention to the other. Being bored or stagnant is a huge challenge on a day like this. Find something you can solve, think out and talk about. Feel productive even if it's in small steps.  Collaboration over isolation, Gemini Moon is outgoing and intellectual too. Tonight the void of course Moon time starts at 7:32 pm EDT and lasts all the way through tomorrow. Today's color is blue.

Friday: Venus in Aries, Mercury opposes Neptune, Void of Course Moon

The Moon is void of course all day. If you can take the day off or at least do only routine work and skip any important decisions or expenses, do it. Mercury opposite Saturn is not easy for business or agreeing to anything important. Put off signing documents if possible. Repercussions from the eclipse may become evident today as Mercury and Saturn continue to work on Taurus/Scorpio. Saturn retrograde until July 20th will continue to hold up the process in some situations, so continue to show interest and effort while also having patience. For Leo, this may relate to home & any family situation. For Sagittarius or Gemini, this more likely relates to your health or changing routine for the better and the long term. Scorpio and Taurus, personal decisions and relationships are impacted. Libra, continue to be mindful with finances, legal matters and anything related to joint partner or ownership. Venus moves to Aries at 9:21 pm. Initiating new relationships is part of her mission, and feeling restless or fickle about new relationships may be natural as a case of spring fever sets in. New and shiny is appealing now. Today's color is red.

Saturday: Cancer Moon, Sun trine Pluto

Earth and water sign energies blend this weekend. Saturday's Sun/Pluto connection in Taurus and Capricorn reminds us to be practical and realistic in our expectations and endeavors. Speak up for what you need and people may step up to help. It's a good day to make a strong impression, public appearance or statement.  Progressive change is in the forecast post eclipses. A down to earth approach is the way to go this weekend. Cancer Moon all weekend long brings attention to what we care for most, both people and things like property, pets, gardens and anything related to ancestry or legacy. It's a good weekend for a house party and staying close to home or with family. Today's color is light blue.

Sunday: Cancer Moon conjunct Jupiter 

The Moon meets Jupiter for a healing and expansive influence. Expansion plans at home get the go ahead. Make sure you know your budget since with Jupiter involved we sometimes lean toward more. Saturn in Scorpio is in contact with the Moon for a more restrictive influence and we may be reminded to follow the rules or stick with past methods even if they seem outdated. Negotiate new things carefully with the feelings of elders or anyone in authority in mind. Be respectful and you'll get further with your own ideas. Today is very much a continuation of yesterday's events and priorities. White is our Cancer Moon color.

April 21st to April 27th, 2014

Monday: Capricorn Moon, Uranus square Pluto

Uranus square Pluto and if there's a cycle you're just plain tired and done with, this is probably one of the trigger points. It's been active for days and peaks today, waning as April ends. This is about a larger cycle, not just one day or week. For about 11 more months, we experience this upheaval of a square. This is why your circumstances keep changing and once you think you've made the appropriate move or decision, there's something else to face. The next time it rears it's influence is during the holidays, December particularly, and then in March next year. My advice is try to find the message as in what do you need to face within yourself and what are you attempting to control that you can't change. And also to find the humor or bring some laughter and lightness in because that is in fact always available even if only through the irony or through a related memory. Find something to smile about. Capricorn Moon is playing well with Venus and Saturn. Don't let power struggles and control issues get the best of you. This can be a very productive, confident day. Be cautious with things like contracts or orders than need to be carried out. Make sure you understand the directions. Mercury in Aries squares the Moon this evening meaning more action in the hot spots, Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra. Family, career obligations or changes, fairness and legalities and how to grow and prosper are all issues for discussion, debate and consideration.  The Moon is void of course from 7:21 pm on and details are more likely to be lost and forgotten then. Today's color is white.

Tuesday: Aquarius Moon, Mars square Jupiter

Mars square Jupiter is part of the picture painted in last night's forecast and is also in the opposite signs of the Uranus/Pluto square at work this week. Take a deep breath. Mars is retrograde until May 19th. Justice may not be easy to find and action not as effectively taken before then. Still, there are things to be dealt with. Do as much as you can without expecting full results quite yet. Fairness and equality are key issues. Cancer, home or family need to be a priority though career related things are keeping you busy and also ever changing this season. Gemini, be careful where money is concerned and don't overextend yourself. Libra, step back a bit and see if you can be objective or get a broader perspective. Aquarius Moon helps us all with that more global, less centric point of view. Aquarius Moon also sheds light on ideas and today it might be about what's not really necessary. Is there something you can let go of or some idea you're  holding onto that's not worth your energy? Are you part of a social or work group that's too draining and can you change that? Be careful tonight! It's a social night on one hand, but on another Mars is opposite Uranus and that looks ominous and potentially unsafe.  Lots of unpredictable energy may create a feeling of being on edge or anxious. Surround yourself with trusted friends. Today's color is blue.

Wednesday: Mercury in Taurus, Mars opposes Uranus and squares Pluto

Mars is opposite Uranus, continuing the influence of the cross in the cardinal signs. The Moon and Saturn also square off. These squares are challenges at best. Manage stress, anxiety, and reactivity in order not to add to whatever is throwing things off course. Some people will not be able to do that effectively and it's likely to be the biggest problem of all. From drama to outrage to grieving, anything is to be expected. Between eclipses, the universe is dealing some more wild cards that change the whole picture. Have your plans for maintaining composure or for stepping back from things for a while. As of 5:16 am EDT, Mercury in Taurus nudges us to think long term in all our decisions and commitments. Act on plans for more abundance and more security including business decisions and home or work upgrades. If you are fortunate not to be impacted much by the cardinal cross action, you can really take advantage of a super productive time to concentrate on grounding, better health habits, and building from the ground up literally or metaphorically. Today's color is turquoise

Thursday: Pisces Moon

This week needed a peace & love day. Pisces Moon helps with compassion, reconnection, and reminds us there is some greater purpose and spirit to life and even death. Pisces Moon stimulates intuition and the artist within. The Moon meets Neptune, ethereal and watery and good for a trip to the beach or lake. Boating and fishing are ruled by this Moon/Neptune meeting. The Sun and Mercury in Taurus give us some grounding, especially in satisfying work, projects and decisions. Heart to heart and sincere communication are favored today. Give yourself time to process. Connect with like minded people. Make progress in a steady, step by step manner. Tonight is good for romance, arts events, and music. Today's color is green.

Friday: Pisces Moon, Sun conjunct Mercury, Venus trine Saturn

Today is loaded with planetary, Sun & Moon aspects, mainly involving the signs Pisces and Taurus. The Sun meets Mercury in Taurus and in some cases final decisions and commitments will be made or announced.  Keep in mind, a Taurus eclipse next week may impact decisions with new developments or awareness, but otherwise this is a decent time to have your mind set in a direction with solid plans backing you up. Some very definitive things will be discussed and said as the weekend starts, tomorrow as well as today. Leo, this is a solid and strong career influence for you. Scorpio, this may come from your significant other and both Scorpio and Capricorn this relates to relationships and your commitment to them.  Taurus, all of the above can be influenced as the Sun and Mercury meet in your sign, and friends and allies play a part with the Pisces planets and Moon supporting. Pisces, expect family news and reasons for travel to be with people you care about.  Venus and Saturn align and we'll be trying to get a handle on anything unresolved in relationships as well as harness creative energies. Relax or do something creative after 4:03 pm when the Moon moves void until 6:01 am EDT. Today's color is yellow.

Saturday: Aries Moon, Mercury sextile Neptune

Just days before the eclipse in Taurus, it's a time for reevaluating, taking inventory, and forming a flexible plan for going forward. It's natural not to quite know what direction to go in right now, but at least try to define your vision. Aries Moon and sitting still do not go well together. Find something to do! Mercury and Neptune are still working that inspired, creative spirit. Art, gardening, music, and any kind of self expression and channeling of emotions into constructive work is favored. Today's color is red.

Sunday: Aries Moon 

There's a long void of course Moon in Aries from 7:02 am EDT until Monday at 10:23 am. Keep this day simple and especially non confrontational. The Moon and Uranus have a newsworthy conjunction overnight that can inspire a great idea or bring unanticipated news. As we build to a solar eclipse at 2:14 am EDT, we might welcome a "dull moment" yet not get one. Don't overexert in work or workouts, and wear safety gear and equipment for work or sports for sure! Take your time. Pressuring other people is a no no too. The Sun and Neptune are in harmony and enhance collaborative or solo projects that require imagination and expressiveness, color and design. Dream up something great and begin to work or play at it! Keep serious business to an absolute minimum. Today's color is gold.

Robin for daily updates

Monday: Full Moon in Libra, Lunar Eclipse

The Moon is in Libra and will be full overnight into Tuesday, at 3:42 am EDT, 12:42 am Pacific. Pluto also starts a Capricorn retrograde today. What a day it is! Planets involved in the cross between cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are all actively involved with each other. This is like hitting all pressure points simultaneously. Some themes are deconstruction (to reconstruct differently later), endings and finality, equality and justice, and breaking news. Be very cautious with any one and any situation that could get heated or violent, destructive or excessive in any way. Changes, movement, unexpected developments are all around us, not only today but for the last few days and also for two weeks ahead. Temperamental feelings cause mood changes, frustration and difficulty dealing in the moment. Try not to be reactive. Patience is required in order to see how things unfold. It might not be easy in the moment, but in the longer run, you'll see that non reactivity or a productive, drama free stance or action is beneficial. Do what you must and no more. Take your time. If you await a legal decision or final settlement, news may come now but go slowly and thoughtfully and make sure it's in your best interests since Mars and Saturn are retrograde. If you have time to hold off, Mars will be direct on May 19th in Libra, sign of justice.  If you need to settle now, make sure you truly feel okay with the terms.  Tonight, Mercury and Uranus activate in Aries and that can lead to great ideas being discussed, inventive instincts, and also word you did not expect. Answer calls, read email, information could be important and timely all week. Today's color is white.


Tuesday: Lunar Eclipse in Libra, Mercury square Pluto

Eclipses shed more light and Mercury squares Pluto, both contributing to long standing mysteries being solved or new information coming to light. Some of this could be sad or create very emotional responses. Be compassionate and/or try not to judge or gossip today. Status changes in relationship and business partnership may seem rampant and in some cases very unexpected. Libra and Aries Sun and rising signs are most impacted in relationship. Unusual news comes all the way around. Breaking down to rebuild later is in the spring forecast. Do the work and try not to cut corners. Keep May 19th and July 20th in your mind as ends of Mars and Saturn retrograde, in that order. Mars is connected more to partnerships, hard feelings, and forward movement while Saturn is related to depressions, obsessions, and halts because proper structure is not present. Both may relate to building. For the moment and the day, act fairly, respect your obligations and do your fair share, and reserve judgment and gossip. Let things unfold and observe, see things more clearly and take your time. Work to meet a deadline if that's beneficial to you. Capricorn may feel that in career and Virgo and Pisces may especially need to work within the financial and work due dates. The Moon is void of course from Full Moon time 3:42 am EDT to 12:20 pm and then to Scorpio for strong attention to one thing.  Today's color is red.

Wednesday: Scorpio Moon

The Scorpio Moon following the eclipse can be a real challenge. However you can harness energy in one direction and make progress in a specific, defined area. Shut all else out if possible. Mercury is opposing Mars retrograde and it's terrible for conflicting agendas or feelings. I would not recommend a debate and even a healthy disagreement could amplify to something much more heated. Agree to disagree or don't even broach controversial topics.  Solitude and/or work with healers, medical professionals, or intuitive people is favored. These situations may go very well! Information can flow, decisions can be made. Intuition over reactive thinking is very important. Get into spiritual and deep processes. Hang a do not disturb sign and accomplish something you feel good about.  Privacy and alone time can go a long way today. Social distractions are not preferred. Today's color is maroon.

Thursday: Moon conjunct Saturn, Venus trine Jupiter

Scorpio Moon and Saturn meet at 3:09 am EDT and the Moon is then void until 5:44 pm. Saturn seems to put a strong word and influence in and then walk out the door leaving us to our own knowledge or resources. Activate other resources in the form of wise friends or colleagues, particularly those in a higher rank or elder position that you. Saturn relates to authorities, parents and older relatives and even bosses who are much more experienced and typically older. Ask for advice or support. Venus and Jupiter in Pisces/Cancer exert a healing, creative, and generous influence.  Put time into what's closest to your heart and soul today. Wear indigo blue.

Friday: Sagittarius Moon, Venus sextile Pluto

Sagittarius Moon encourages forward momentum. Moon and Venus square and Venus aligns with Pluto and really questioning anything regarding love or business partnerships comes after that Full Moon. Venus is the planet of relationship and harmony. In Pisces, she wants peace and love. The Sagittarius Moon states "Perhaps I want my independence and more freedom to move!" Venus in Pisces might retreat or sulk or write a great song of unrequited or lost love. Today has a melancholy quality and an exciting feeling as well. You may get more of one or an equal mix of both. In some cases, relationship things you thought were resolved crop up again now. Do you thing, be with friends, have an adventure and take your sweet time with emotional decisions and commitments. If it's worth it, it will still be there in a couple of weeks or days.  Today's color is pink.

Saturday: Sun to Taurus, Sagittarius Moon

The Moon is in harmony with Mercury and the Sun in Aries. It's a day of activity, confidence boosting, and things moving in positive directions. The Moon is waning and this is a good day to clear what you don't need, from negative thoughts to actual stuff that's just taking up space. A change of scene may feel good this weekend. The Moon is void of course only briefly 9:18 to 9:29 pm EDT, and then moves to Capricorn tonight. The Sun also changes signs, to Taurus before midnight at 11:56 pm EDT. Earth sign energy dominates the second half of the weekend and is good for grounding in tasks and enjoying or working outdoors. Today's color is yellow.

Sunday: Sun in Taurus, Moon in Capricorn

The earth signs aim to build security and literally to construct and produce. The Moon and Sun both encourage this today. Jupiter is a force from Cancer, making aspects with Uranus, Pluto and the Moon, challenging old ways of operating in families, businesses, and thought patterns. Aim to go beyond your outworn methods, judgments, and possibly relationships. You could attempt to start again fresh in relationships, however, leaving the past where it belongs. Jupiter encourages family healing all year long while in Cancer until late July. Jupiter opposite Pluto and square to Uranus indicates that radical and out of the box thinking could lead you away from destructive, useless, or just plain outdated ways.  With so much April change and in some cases instability or confusion, this is a good day to change your mind and set it on what you really want. Then start building that vision from the foundation up. Today's color is green. 

Friday, April 4, 2014

April 7th to April 13th, 2014

The Libra/Aries eclipse of April 15th is full of instability. This week is a warmup and some of the pre-eclipse rumbles arrive early this week. Navigate life's changes with a reading or coaching session by appointment or by email. More info here. Wishing you all the luck & alignment of the planets!


 Monday: Mercury in Aries

The Cancer Moon squares Sun & Mars, fueling the fire of cardinal sign action. The eclipse on the 15th is a peak and today could hint at what's to come. With eclipses it's rarely the way you think or expect things will develop. Themes include balance in relationships and partnerships, family business, passive aggression, and legal matters. Extremes, opposing forces, and unresolved business and pending decisions come up for some effort and attention now. Mercury adds to the picture, moving into Aries at 11:35 am. Initiating, pushing for answers and information, and trying to make final decisions is in the forecast this week, but much of the "weather" is unstable. It's like trying to travel during a major storm. Go for some progress without pushing for everything at once. Many situations will shift in the next two weeks and month. The Moon is void of course from 2:14 pm EDT until Tuesday morning. Cancer and Capricorn, there's a big tug between family, home and your more public persona and responsibilities such as career. Aries, relationship decisions you make with a partner may be at a standstill. Patience is a good thought for all signs. Be cautious tonight. Today's color is white.

Tuesday: Leo Moon
Leo Moon starts at 5:50 am EDT. Socially it's a vibrant day as the Moon and Mercury newly in Aries ignite exchanges of ideas and interest in people. There's an urge for action and to be expressive and inventive. Get out of your shell and see who's interesting! Aries Sun is opposite Mars and this is quite heated! Things could get exciting or out of hand. Arguments could start without warning, mainly in situations where things have built to volcano  level and can no longer be held in. As the NASA site explains, "Mars rises in the east at sunset, and soars almost overhead at midnight, shining burnt-orange almost 10 times brighter than a 1st magnitude star."  Mars will be easy to see in the sky. The warrior planet's influence is usually motivation, action & assertiveness. However, Mars is retrograde right now and not in his usual element so all things Mars ruled and also legal matters and relationship issues are suppressed, making it all extra challenging and less than smooth. Today's color is orange.

Wednesday: Leo Moon

This is a true fire sign day with the Moon aspecting the Sun and Uranus in Aries and hot planet Mars in Libra. Extroversion, boldness, courage, and inspired ideas and action are some effects.  Do watch out for people with flaring tempers or unpredictable natures. Fun is bubbling up and kids may need to be watched carefully and kept busy with creative pastimes and learning. It's a good day for learning, rehearsing and performing. The only thing holding back today is Mars and you may see that in the form of brooding or stewing about things that are left unsaid for now. Today's color is gold.

Thursday: Moon square Saturn, Moon void of course

The Leo Moon squares retrograde Saturn and is then void of course from 2:26 am to 6:08 pm EDT. For Leo, long standing home and family matters are prioritized. For Scorpio, career and personal things on hold crop up for some work and attention. Taurus may be dealing with family and home related issues, and some of that may not be easy or quite clear yet. With the void of course Moon, reserve judgment as much as you can and take your sweet time giving answers. Reduce pressure any way you can today. Though serious matters are up for discussion, with Leo Moon remember your sense of fun or sense of humor and see the possibilities even if you're dealing with the roadblocks. The Moon is in Virgo tonight for those working overtime or committed to helping out friends or someone in the community.  Today's color is navy blue.

Friday: Venus conjunct Neptune

Venus and Neptune in Pisces are right across from the Virgo Moon. They meet for a romantic date night! Music and the arts and film are favored too. Healing practices, compassionate actions, and generosity will draw us in. The very practical and conservative or perfectionistic among us may conflict with the dreamers and those who want to just find the flow. Do plan something nice tonight. Today's color is pink.

Saturday: Virgo Moon

The Moon and Saturn align and it's a taking care of business type day.  The Moon will be Full with a lunar eclipse on Tuesday at 3:42 am EDT, and Full Moon pressure is in the air. This comes in the form of requiring final drafts or products, reaching decisions that are important, and shedding light on big questions or mysteries. It's good to put effort in and make attempts, plan and prepare for what's scheduled, but also know that eclipses throw us strange curve balls that change everything. This is one of the times where those phrases about the best laid plans apply. It's possible what's just ahead will not turn out how you expect at all! That doesn't mean giving up is an option, and our work ethic is stimulated today. Otherwise, guilty or nagging feelings are likely to bear down. Help someone out, enjoy some positive aspects of good relationships and heartfelt connections while Venus is in Pisces. Pay attention to problems and things that need cleanup and refreshing too.  Make some order and define some structure, and then just see what happens in the next few days to two weeks, the peak of the eclipse in Libra. Fairness, shared responsibilities, the inner workings of relationship, and legalities are some of this Full Moon's news. Shop or discuss important topics before the void of course Moon at 1:12 pm EDT. Today's color is black.

Sunday: Libra Moon

The Moon moves to Libra at 4:33 am EDT, sign of Tuesday's overnight Full Moon. We are in the eye of the lunar eclipse now. Partnership matters and things that must be negotiated carefully are in the early week forecast. News will rattle people in some cases.  If you're waiting for a breakthrough, it may come, though not without a storm in most situations.  The Full Moon is near Mars, Mercury is with Uranus across the zodiac in Aries, and shake ups are the hallmark of this lunar eclipse. The status quo will be disturbed, ultimately because it must be or nothing would changed. Imbalanced relationships are due to crumble with this eclipse in the sign of partners. What you hear or experience could be very surprising. In general, this is Aries commitments to other people, Libra's personal plans and self, Virgo and Pisces financial resources, Gemini and Sagittarius social circles and alliances with friends and others. The Moon is approaching opposition to Mercury today so eclipse news may come early. Today's color is lavender.
