Horoscopes in the Portland Phoenix Pick up the paper and find Robin's Zodiac Zone for your sign 

Monday: Aries Moon

The Aries Moon is an impulse to action. Get things accomplished without the urgency or impulsiveness Aries Moon and Uranus can bring. Mars in Aquarius lends an inventive and original nature to processes and products in the works.  Mercury and Venus in Capricorn square the Moon and favor leaders, initiators and organizers efforts. Win someone over with confidence and assertiveness. Know that a struggle for power or a feeling of intimidation may hamper efforts, and tone down anything that could create that. Jupiter in Leo has an optimistic and spontaneous influence on social interaction and creative pursuits. It's a great day if you're not involved in a play for power.  Games will be competitive. Void of course Moon begins at 7:46 pm ET until 5:56 am Tuesday. Today's color is gold.

Tuesday: Taurus Moon

The Taurus Moon begins at 5:56 am and lasts into New Year's day. A sensual sign for the Moon, this instigates romance, good cooking, and other earthly delights. Art, design, and making from scratch are favored today. The Moon and Capricorn Sun are in harmony for a grounded, secure feeling.  Make home more comfortable or sturdy. Build, organize, and rearrange spaces.  Work with color, wood, and gemstones. Make repairs. Feel connected to beauty and tangible results.  Today's color is green.

Wednesday: Taurus Moon

The Moon and Pluto align for more earth sign activity, like Tuesday. There are also two squares today involving Jupiter in Leo and Mars in Aquarius. Though these are fixed sign squares indicating stubbornness, they also impart confidence and unyielding loyalty. It's worth working through differences to get desired results today.  If you tend to be hands on, listening or reading may add to your repertoire or help solve a stubborn problem. If you tend to be open and creative, let someone with different skills or perspective direct your energy for tangible accomplishments. All in all, connect with people or resources that complement your style. Challenge yourself. New Year's Eve is meant to be intimate, comfortable, romantic, and involve good food. Today's color is green.

Thursday: Happy New Year

The Moon moves from Taurus to Gemini after a void of course time from 7:19 am to 12:09 pm. New Year's 2015 begins with harmony in love and communication from Venus and Mercury in Capricorn.  Connect in real, meaningful ways moving from purely romantic to practical and honest as well. Relationships can really benefit and move to new levels at times like this.  Gemini Moon opposes Saturn and Mars opposes Jupiter later for a very different effect.  Avoid exaggeration, choose words with care, and be willing to scale down and reign in scattered energy.  There are many possible influences to these oppositions. Generally you may find yourself with opposing values, opinions and possibilities.  Try to avoid extravagance, drama, and statements with no action or supporting facts to back them up. Trust only what you know well. Don't be pushed for answers. Today's color is yellow. 

Friday: Gemini Moon

The Moon and Uranus align today creating spontaneous action or words. This can get you into trouble. Pause and respond thoughtfully. Enjoy lively conversation, debate, and sharing of stories with a light attitude. It's possible we shouldn't take life too seriously on a day like this. Arguments can easily flare up. Be amused rather than annoyed as much as possible.  The Full Moon is Sunday and we'll begin to feel the build up. Today's color is white.

Saturday: Gemini to Cancer Moon, Venus to Aquarius

Venus starts the Aquarius trend for the season with a move at 9:46 am and a stay for most of the month. Venus in Aquarius is sensible in love and favors collaborations, community and friendship. Leo and Aquarius benefit in love and partnership and Libra and Aries benefit from new friendships and enjoy social occasions in January. Mercury will join Venus in Aquarius on Sunday, adding to the focus on the water bearer, which is truly an air sign of intelligence and vision. Today we're in Full Moon mode as the Moon shifts to Cancer at 8:08 pm after a v.o.c time since 6:55 am. It's not a day to shop, commit or trust too willingly.  It is a time to wander, enjoy, take it easy, read, study, or write.  The Sun is active with Uranus and Pluto and there's an unreliable or strange feeling in the air.  Be aware of manipulative or dominant personalities. Announcements are likely. Give them a few days to settle in and to sort out the facts.  The Moon is full Sunday at 11:53 pm ET. Today's color is light blue. 

Sunday: Cancer Full Moon

The Full Moon is opposite Pluto and the Sun and square to Uranus. The comfort zone is a good place to be. A strong trigger to emotions, sentiment, the past and intuition, this Full Moon will be tumultuous for some and is a definite pull to home and security. If you lack roots or a grounded feeling right now, it could be a tough one.  Venus and Saturn urge commitment and order in relationships.  Create a warm feeling, be there for a friend, stay out of drama or needless opposition. Today's color is silver.

Weekly December 22nd to December 28th, 2014

Monday: Conjunctions in Capricorn

The Moon meets Pluto, Venus, and Mercury all in Capricorn.  A high concentration of Capricorn mentality is the equivalent of being on a mission to get everything sorted out, communicated, and flowing flawlessly.  Organizing, delegating, and problem solving lead to results. Progress with goals and personal decisions for Capricorn and career happenings for Aries, relationship and commitment for Cancer, and it's all about family and home for Libra. Virgo tends to feel at home with all of this and may want to get together with friends or do festive things.  The Moon is void of course at 10:17 pm ET until 9:53 pm Tuesday. This is a better day for purchases and confident action all the way around. The New Moon of Sunday will put many of us in ambitious modes for taking care of all sort of things. Make sure your health is one of them. Capricorn is the sign of teeth, the entire skeletal system and the knees. Stay mobile without overdoing anything, especially stress on the joints. Today's color is green. 

Tuesday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon

The Moon is void of course for most of the day and night.  With void Moon in Capricorn, easy tasks and errands are favored. Major shopping or business decisions might be best put off. Saturn is about to move to Sagittarius and has one more aspect in Scorpio, to this Capricorn Moon, putting a serious spin on things and urging focus for late night hours and a to do list for morning that could even include something quite important, legal, medical, business related or goings on with the much older people in our lives. Aquarius Moon for social get togethers way after business hours. Today's color is gray.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon

The Moon is in Aquarius, the sign of community. It's great if you're volunteering for a holiday event or gathering quite a few people together for any common reason. Mars and Uranus are active today with the Moon and each other, and it's a good idea to be extra cautious in every way. With fire, electricity, gambling, or anything you know you could get into trouble with.  The spontaneous nature of the day is also combustible.  Take care and watch out for others around you too. Merry Christmas Eve! Enjoy safely and comfortably Today's color is blue.

Thursday: Aquarius Moon

Mercury meets Pluto overnight. Secrets long held may be divulged. There's a spiritual and metaphysical influence when Pluto engages. Mercury is the messenger planet. Perhaps information comes to you in a dream or someone long forgotten gets in touch.  Mercury in Capricorn is also a trouble shooter, and finding the answer or the key to getting something accomplished is also a possible effect. The Aquarius Moon is void of course from 10:11 am to 11:07 pm ET, across from Jupiter in Leo and square to Saturn.  A collaborative effort is effective with these aspects.  Commitments and decisions made today have long lasting impact and stability. Vision is a strength of the sign Aquarius where the Moon travels this Christmas. Pisces Moon at 11:07 pm. Today's color is turquoise.

Friday: Pisces Moon

The Sun, Neptune and the Moon align today. A relaxed, easygoing, intuitive influence, the Pisces/Capricorn harmony is a mix of practical and dreamy and might help with creativity, building, or a purely restorative time.  Today's color is green.

Saturday: Pisces Moon

Pisces Moon harmonizes with Mercury and Venus for romance, softening up, and improved conversations.  Give a bit of leeway to yourself or someone else.  Relax more, tune in, and allow some sentiment in. The Moon is void of course from 10:44 am to 1:35 am Sunday. Today's color is light blue.

Sunday: Aries Moon

The Moon moves to Aries at 1:35 am. It's an active day and some will feel urgency around situations or travels today and tomorrow. Yet it's best to slow down some. Saturn, newly in Sagittarius, aligns with the Moon. It's a new cycle we'll get used to over time. Notice any way that today feels different, particularly Aries and Sagittarius who host this action.  Saturn in Sagittarius is about learning by experience, for one thing.  The Moon and Sun square. Think before you act too quickly, and know that who's dominant or in power may be a question to resolve or stay out of. Today's color is red.

December 15th to 21st, 2014

Sunday is the Solstice. Join me for a one of a kind celebration with deep stretch, restorative yoga and yogic sleep known as Yoga Nidra. This practice is focused on healing, feeling the true spirit of the season, and welcoming the New Moon to manifest your heartfelt intentions. Scarborough Yoga 4-5:30 pm. $25 or 2 for $45 Sign up link

Monday: Libra Moon, Uranus square Pluto

Sort out, deal with, and negotiate the best possible scenario under this Libra Moon. It's impacted by Uranus and Pluto in the other cardinal signs, Aries and Capricorn.  As those two planets square, the shadow side and things buried deep conflicts with Uranian rebelliousness. We might see this in the news. Put out intentions for peace. In personal lives, the effect will be felt most among those of you who have planets or trigger points with these planets. That's hard to predict unless you know your chart well. I recommend avoiding anything out of the ordinary or risky today and the two days before and after. Reconstructing feelings and processing emotional events will be one effect. Cancer and Libra are the opposite signs and relationship, home, career, and very personal things can come up with this square.  Venus and Mars are involved with the Moon today and relationships are in the forefront for reconciling and responding to, with care and thought. This is not the time to confront volatile people or situations. Let it go for now and through December. Today's color is  lavender.

Tuesday: Libra Moon

A continuation of yesterday's activity is likely as the Libra Moon triggers with Uranus and Pluto.  Yet Jupiter in Leo harmonizes with the Moon and we do best helping each other out, collaborating and enjoying time with people we know. Create some fun.  Jupiter in Leo is about growth and Libra Moon is about fairness and partnership. Put that all together and ease a tense situation if necessary. Aim for growth. It's Mercury's last day (hours) in Sagittarius. Pick up a good book or learn something valuable. Mercury moves to Capricorn at 10:53 pm ET for very practical, grounded thinking and problem solving in the weeks ahead. Void Moon overnight is not good for any judgment calls or decisions. Today's color is green.

Wednesday: Mercury in Capricorn, Scorpio Moon

Scorpio Moon comes at 9:52 am ET after a void of course Moon from 12:40 am until then. The Moon works well with Mercury and Neptune and inspires creativity as well as better communication and action on a plan. The day is more introverted as we deal with and manage personal priorities. Today's color is indigo blue.

Thursday: Scorpio Moon

The Moon aligns with Venus and Pluto in Capricorn and squares Mars in Aquarius.  The question is how much to rebel, challenge or create waves. Remain practical and organized with your thinking. Cancer, relationship is top priority. Virgo, communicate well and clearly. A long talk with a friend or someone you love may be needed now. If you're challenging authority or the norm, easy does it. Today's color is maroon.

Friday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon

Heavy business is the work of Saturn and the Moon in Scorpio. If you can settle something today, so be it. Saturn is only in Scorpio until December 23rd (and back for a retrograde visit next summer). It's been a long road with certain big issues and today can be about finalizing the answers or finishing the building, sale, or acquisition. Medical decisions may also come now. The Moon is briefly void of course 4:11 to 4:55 pm ET and ready for an abrupt shift to freedom loving Sagittarius. We go from attending to burdens and responsibility to an avoidance of both. Transition gently for a weekend where your spirit feels lighter,  hopefully. Allow in some adventure, fun and learning through experience. Make some room for more joy. Try not to let others down in your own exuberance or need to escape. Find decent middle ground this weekend. It's meant for road trips and such things.  Red is today's color. 

Saturday: Sagittarius Moon

The universe is busy with a variety of aspects and action from many planets. It may be hard to know what to focus on. Put energy toward things that are malleable where you will see results or know you're getting there. Sagittarius Moon usually inspires travels, new experiences, immersion in culture and experiential learning. However Mars and Uranus align and it's very  unpredictable and potentially aggressive energy so today you may be best off in your comfort zone with trusted people who have your back. Take no risks or gambles today and tonight. Venus influences ongoing relationship issues and some will get a wake up call as Venus squares Uranus and meets Pluto. Face up to the realities of your significant other, even if it's not a pretty picture. If it's unhealthy, these aspects make things obvious. Consider how to heal or let go if this applies to you. You'll can be stronger and reinvent yourself. Those not in the midst of this can support friends who are. Balance enthusiasm and festivity with caring and sensitivity. We are all on different paths and experiencing the holidays in our own ways. Today's color is purple. 

Sunday: Winter Solstice & New Moon

I'm at Scarborough Yoga for a New Moon Solstice Yoga & Yoga Nidra Event. Great for anyone with yoga experience or not. Manifest and energize your dearest intentions with Yoga Nidra.
Register at this link: Solstice Yoga & Yoga Nidra

It's a special New Moon in Capricorn, arriving on the Solstice as the Sun changes to that same sign. Capricorn, you are set up to thrive, prosper and make stable changes now. Build on the foundation you've set this year. Jupiter aligns just before the Moon changes signs, putting extra blessings on this day and making it a good day to gather, create, and truly feel the spirit of the holiday season.  Cancer and Virgo, this favors relationships. Sagittarius, Aries, and Gemini, the New Moon in one way or another blesses your financial matters and other career and business moves. Scorpio, communication improvements, news about educational, marketing and travels to family are expected. Libra, positive upgrades and improved relationships with family for you. Today's color is white.

Weekly December 8th to 14th, 2014

Monday: Sun conjunct Mercury, Cancer Moon

A mix of energies and elements leads one way or the other. Cancer Moon squares Uranus in Aries and opposes Pluto every month and it's proven to be challenging. Those who throw you off balance and unpredictable situations can flare up. This may be a repetitive cycle you're used to though no one probably welcomes revisiting it. Family matters are often part of this with Cancer Moon, though a Gemini or Sagittarius can find business or legal matters more challenging. The bright side is Mercury and the Sun meet in Sagittarius. Announcements and declarations, statements with motivation behind them, come now. Scorpio and Pisces have news to receive or share regarding work and career this week. Leo finds this very lucky and can hope for the best news possible. Friendship and fun are forecast for Leo and Aquarius among others. Try to find that bright side even if annoying grievances plague you yet again. Today's color is yellow.

Tuesday: Cancer to Leo Moon

Cancer Moon trine Saturn in Scorpio means home, family and health in the forefront. Put some effort and attention on taking care of things, with sensitivity and a smile. Take an idea and form a step by step plan to carry it out. It's a day for conservative business and judicious spending only. A void of course Moon takes over from 7:14 pm to 10:14 pm ET-adjust for your time zone.  This does not favor best judgement in decision making and spending. However, if you get so caught up in overthinking that you have trouble with decisions, this may free you to take some sort of action. Keep things simple and adjustable. At 10:14 the Moon moves to Leo for late night lions who may enjoy a great time with friends.  Today's color is purple. 

Wednesday: Venus in Capricorn

Venus moves to Capricorn and Mercury will join that party next Tuesday. Capricorn energy is traditional and structured and any lack of those elements will become obvious now. The urge to nest, repair things, settle in, and manage things better with business and with the significant other and at home are all Capricorn effects this season. Cancer longs to cohabitate and might make a relationship commitment now. Venus in your sign, Capricorn, makes you one of the zodiac's darlings. You're favored to attract friends, opportunities, and to treat yourself well. (ps Capricorn, December has much more in store to support and perk up your spirits!) Virgo, Venus in Capricorn brightens your love and social life. Aries, this is the time to seek a promotion, upgrade or send out resumes.  Leo Moon is all stirred up today with Mars across the zodiac increasing the chance we'll strongly disagree or make a huge effort to see a different point of view. This relates very much to collaborating and how much effort it takes. Uranus adds inventiveness and reason to change things up, maybe at the last possible moment.  Today's color is pink.

Thursday: Leo Moon conjunct Jupiter

This is a peak day for things suddenly falling together. Leo Moon relates to children, teachers, performers and those who deal with the public, like politicians and media professionals.  The Moon aligns with the Sagittarius Sun for travel and educational prospects. Mercury also speaks for two days, urging clear messages, good news, and sparking the imagination of writers and the wanderlust of travelers.  Jupiter meets the Moon in a glorious burst of Leo optimism, enthusiasm and growth. Further your plans and surround yourself with the best allies, friends, and support team today! Enjoy some luck and see what's working for you. Today's color is gold. 

Friday: Mercury trine Jupiter, Leo to Virgo Moon

Mercury continues his efforts to get things moving, expanding, and clarified with alignment to Jupiter in Leo. Jupiter is Sagittarius's planet and Mercury is in that sign, favoring higher learning (so do send applications now), travel (do plan that winter trip before Mercury is retrograde in January/February), and the tools that keep us in touch and connected. Computer, cell phone and other technical upgrades are timed well. The Moon has a variety of aspects and emotions may be up and down today, depending on your agenda. Serious decisions and business come up with Saturn first thing. Take care of something confidently and before it becomes a problem. The Moon is void from 7:48 to 10:19 am ET and then on to Virgo for practical problem solving.  Moon and Venus put us in the mood to dress up and clean up. Neptune in Pisces adds a romantic and hazy effect to the evening's plans. Timeliness might be an issue tonight. Try not to disappoint with a no show. Friends are relying on you, Virgo, Pisces and Scorpio. Come out of your shells.  Today's color is blue.

Saturday: Virgo Moon

Virgo Moon aligns with Pluto. Being productive, organizing and feeling accomplishments are Saturday's theme this week. Studying is also favored. Find a balance of tasks and some enjoyment of home, food, creating and simple pleasures. Short forecast for a day of the basics. Feel good about something you pulled off this week. Today's color is brown.

Sunday: Virgo to Libra Moon, Sun trine Jupiter

Follow up to Jupiter's activity a few days ago. The Sun and Jupiter help put it all together for special announcements, happy occasions, beneficial opportunities and joining forces.  This is a time for expansion, clearing the way, and making the decision that opens the door to a new journey.  Venus and Neptune are in harmony too, increasing the feeling of romance, possibility and love.  Today is good timing for so many things, whether you initiate or just allow it all to unfold.  News will create discussion since the thing that makes one person happy can create discontent for another. All in all, today has much potential for joy! Go with it. Libra Moon moves in at 11:05 pm ET after just two hours void of course. Shopping is ok except for those hours. Today's color is violet.
