Robin's Zodiac Zone February 1st to 7th, 2016

Monday: Scorpio Moon

Actively focus energy on a priority matter. Scorpio Moon meets Mars and the tendency to be aggressive is there, so rather than act in anger or impatience, channel your inner warrior for a good or personal cause.  The Moon aligns with Pluto which may help if you're looking for an answer, researching or soul searching.  Mercury and Jupiter also combine forces with Scorpio Moon, intensifying communications, the will to serve others, and to improve physical and mental health. Take some steps to improve life in general, keep your heart in the right place, and avoid anything with ulterior motive or excessive need to control. Void of course Moon breaks the spell at 7:35 pm. If you're wound up and work hard all day, use this time to relax. Today's color is red.

Tuesday: Imbolc, Groundhog Day, Sagittarius Moon

Imbolc is an ancient "holiday" welcoming back daylight. Light things up today or tonight, with candles, lanterns, or your favorite strings of bulbs. The Moon starts void of course and moves officially to Sagittarius at 10:50 am ET. The Moon aspects no other heavenly bodies. It's a beautiful day for freedom, travels, and enjoyable learning experiences.  Immerse yourself in something you love. Do something to make today a bit more special and out of the ordinary. Today's color is yellow.

Wednesday: Mars sextile Pluto, Sun sextile Saturn

The Moon and Saturn meet as Saturn aligns with the Aquarius Sun.  Agreements of a serious nature are featured. Commit to school, a trip abroad or your own freedom. Break a habit or pattern by having a multi-faceted, versatile plan. Contracts and agreements lean more toward dissolving than creating partnerships and can include divorce, separation of assets or division of a company.  Mars and Pluto activate things that have been held back and are now ready to become public, come to the surface and be dealt with rather than hidden or ignored.  Things may settle quickly and in unusual ways as the Moon and Uranus align. Wear turquoise.

Thursday: Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon

The Moon is void of course in Sag from 5:04 am to 7:44 pm. Moon squares Jupiter in Virgo as void time begins.  Health, eduction, travel and service to others are some of the areas charged by this square. Disagreements and prompts to settle and reach decisions are likely.  Sorting out values and trying to come to consensus with another person or party is part of the process. Virgo and Sagittarius, hosting the Moon and Jupiter, are very different in nature and ways of operating in the world. However, both are mutable signs, so build in some flexibility to make agreement more appealing. Room for revision helps you forward a plan. Capricorn Moon arrives at 7:44 pm. It's a good night for organizing information or space and for studies as well. Today's color is green.

Friday: Capricorn Moon, Venus conjunct Pluto

It's a very Capricorn day as the Moon travels the same sign Venus and Pluto align in.  The Moon harmonizes with Neptune in Pisces. Be realistic, but don't give up your dream or ideal too easily.  Venus, planet of love, is in practical Capricorn. Warm someone up to an idea. Stir emotions that have been repressed out of fear. Be vulnerable and strong in combination.  For example, express your intentions or feelings in order to release the energy it requires to hold them in. Then let go of the outcome and know that you will be okay no matter how you're received.  Pluto has the power to transform, and today this influences our personal relationships and desires.  Affection may go a long way. Reassure someone who may fear that you're leaving or no longer care. This includes lovers, family and friends.  Work with the undercurrents. Activate intuition, and act. Moon and Neptune provide possibilities for romance and/or managing life better together, and appreciation for complementary styles and contributions. Team up with someone who brings a different trait or skill to your project or environment.  Beautify and organize space to function better. Spring clean early, before Monday's fresh New Moon time. Today's color is pink.

Yoga Nidra guided meditation in West Falmouth at Greener Postures is postponed due to weather.

Saturday: Capricorn Moon, Mercury trine Jupiter, Sun sextile Uranus

This looks like a varied and eventful day.  Communication holds great importance .Be clear and go for the very best outcomes. Think of the whole picture, of how others are influenced, and of how to maximize your gifts and skills.  Sun and Uranus combine for original ideas and solutions, quick thinking, and awakenings.  With too many aspects to individually name and describe here, anticipate possibilities and work with what has great potential. Be present with what you have for resources and support while seeing beyond the here and now. What can you do today, that may seem simple, that influences your tomorrow and the experience of others greatly? That is today's mission. Today's color is black.

Sunday: Sun square Mars, Venus sextile Mars, Aquarius Moon

Mars, the warrior planet, has strong influence today. The Sun square Mars features things we're stubbornly attached to, and makes agreement difficult.  Venus, planet of love, in Capricorn, softens the picture, brings in a realistic attitude, and aims for harmony, chemistry and compatibility. Romantic and long term relationships will probably fare better than business, political, or other interactions as a result.  Chemistry is strong in the Scorpio, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer realms, and new love is very pleasurable and intense.  Disagreements of personal nature, between rivals for example, will be strong and hard to work through.  Debates are not encouraged today. If you're willing to sort something out, and you go in with the intent to be flexible and to hear someone out, you could settle a tough dispute. Attitude will be everything. The Moon is in Aquarius, and on this day prior to New Moon, define your vision and next potential move. Clear clutter and obstacles. Today's color is blue.

As far as the big game Sunday, both team cities are Scorpios and during this Aquarius time, both would be in the spotlight! Denver has Capricorn Moon and there are many Capricorn influences at work the past few days.  It's a tough one to predict, but whether or not Denver wins, the impact of this Super game appears to positively influence Denver beyond this day. Perhaps the underdog will be victorious.

Robin's Zodiac Zone Astrology January 25th to 31st, 2016

Monday: Mercury Direct

The Moon is void of course in Leo, just past Full. Keep your schedule and conversations simple. Save significant decisions for tomorrow. Be creative and playful. Have a sense of humor and count your blessings.  Kids may exhibit Full Moon "hangover" and need more freedom or quiet time today. Structure won't be easy to achieve while the Moon is void of course.  Explore, play games, do routine tasks like housecleaning and let your mind wander. Tune into your calendar and clock. It's easy to miss appointments on days like this. Mercury is direct at 4:50 pm ET. The Moon shifts to Virgo at 10:46 pm. Today's color is navy blue.

Tuesday: Virgo Moon

The practical aspects of relationship are one thing to focus on as the Moon and Venus align in earth signs.  Harmonize by organizing and managing finances, household responsibilities and career demands with grace.  Mars aligns with the Moon too. Act with passion and drive.  Neptune can add romance or illusion to this day. Make sure expectations are realistic and you're seeing and understanding things clearly. Today's color is pink.

Wednesday: Virgo Moon conjunct Jupiter

Virgo Moon connects with a handful of planets for varied perspective and experience today. The strongest is the conjunction with Jupiter. Focus on health, wealth, purification and studies.  Rise to a challenge. Prepare for a test. Expand on your ideas and use versatile thinking. Void of course Moon begins at 7:11 pm ET and ends at 9:59 am on Thursday.  Brown is today's color.

Thursday: Libra Moon square Venus

Libra Moon time starts at 9:59 am ET, and prior to that the Moon is void of course. Double check on early morning things, like schedules, belongings and facts. Venus, Libra's ruling planet, squares the Libra Moon. Work through partnership disagreements or decisions. Effort is required. Fair decisions are favored if you can cut through the clutter.  Settle a dispute. Arrive at a mutual conclusion even where no disagreement is involved.  Today's color is blue.

Friday: Libra Moon

Find order in what might seem like chaos. Clear out what's unnecessary. Give your attention to what can be productive. Skip debates that keep circling back and never resolve.  Move on to something that's worth your energy.  Saturn and the Sun align with the Moon and that can help with decisiveness.  Mercury, Pluto and Uranus square or oppose the Moon. At minimum these aspects bring up mixed feelings. Keep your sanity and balance today. Void of course Moon begins at 8:34 pm after the Uranus opposition. Instability and craziness can take over with these conditions.  Take care of yourself and each other. See the Mercury/Pluto forecast ahead since it may affect your day and night. Today's color is lavender.

Saturday: Mercury conjunct Pluto, Venus sextile Neptune

Just over a week ago, Mercury retrograde met Pluto. Today this conjunction repeats with Mercury direct. Understand a lesson and awaken to a reality, primarily about yourself, your shadow aspect, your communication style, or some news you've recently heard.  The Moon is void of course. Keep things simple. There's a spiritual, soulful aspect at work (all the time) that you may recognize more than usual. Venus and Neptune align for romance and for blending practical and whimsical traits.  Scorpio Moon arrives at 10:50 pm ET, and more focus and attention kick in.  Today's color is black.

Sunday: Scorpio Moon, Mercury square Uranus

Avoid irrational arguments and ways of thinking today. Question or fight the urge to act or speak impulsively.  It's not a good day to invite trouble, confrontation or jealous competition. Act consciously, take care of yourself and others, stay out of negative thinking, and engage in something healing or satisfying. Focusing on one thing is favored during Scorpio Moon. Organize and accomplish. Or spend your time on healthy and spiritual pursuits.  Today's color is indigo blue.

Weekly Astrology January 18th to 24th, 2016

Monday: Taurus Moon, Venus square Jupiter, Mars trine Neptune

Taurus Moon aligns with Mercury retrograde, Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. The earth sign energy is strong and encouraging for productivity and problem solving even with Mercury retrograde. Take another pass at something you haven't quite worked out before. An alternative method or variable could be just what's needed. Venus and Jupiter challenge philosophy around growth and freedom within relationship. Sort through what's holding you back from fully enjoying your love and partnership life. Is there something that makes you run rather than fully engage? Mars and Neptune provide creative fuel today. Transform emotion into art. Enjoy music, movement, dance, design and color today. Wear light blue.

Tuesday: Taurus to Gemini Moon

From 1:50 to 4:13 am the Moon is void of course, then transitions to Gemini. Moon and Sun are in harmony at 1:50 for ease and feelings of comfort and confidence.  Gemini Moon squares Neptune at 6:09 pm. Both are in mutable signs and have elements of duplicity and duality. Today make sure people and situations are what they appear to be before entering agreements or being trustful. Be playful with words. Work around a mental or writer's block by trying something entirely different. Do this without committing-write in pencil, so to speak.  Gemini Moon rules our relationships with brothers and sisters.  Today's color is yellow.

Wednesday: Sun in Aquarius, Mercury retrograde square Uranus

The Sun moves to Aquarius at 10:27 am. Hours prior, Saturn opposes the Gemini Moon and goes on to align with Uranus at 9:24 am. This is a changeable day with unpredictable aspects if you're negotiating or immersed in a situation of uncertainty.  Honesty and it's shadow side are at play.  Gemini and Sagittarius, hosting Moon and Saturn, are sometimes challenging signs for mediating and coming to honest conclusions. One has duplicity, one is bold, both can be insensitive when conflicts arise.  Mercury is retrograde, and that's another reason to go easy on each other, avoid harsh statements or criticism.  People may try to overpower each other, especially with words, today. Avoid burning a bridge you can't easily repair.  The Moon squares Jupiter and disagreements about how to pursue goals and expansion is one symptom. Consider how to adapt, compromise, and also how much truth is being revealed.  If you're not certain, hold off. Today's color is turquoise.

Thursday: Gemini to Cancer Moon

Full Moon is ahead on Saturday and the tide is coming in! From 3:01 to 8:28 am ET the Moon is void of course in Gemini. If you begin the day during these hours, know that it may be a forgetful, spacey morning.  The Moon and Venus oppose at 3:01 am and relationship disagreements could be one effect, or you might just feel out of sorts overnight into morning. Cancer Moon is the sign of emotions, so moodiness could easily prevail. The Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces for acting with empathy and sensitivity.  Artistic ventures are favored. Be careful with financial dealings.  Tune into other people's feelings, body language, and messages.  Today's color is white.

Friday: Mercury conjunct Pluto, Cancer Moon

Mercury retrograde meeting Pluto unearths information, puzzle pieces and can lead to more self awareness. Be on the lookout as subtle things emerge. There's an air of secretiveness and mystery.  Someone may divulge private feelings or news. Emotions stir for possible catharsis.  Cancer Moon opposes Mercury and Pluto, intensifying effects. There are other Moon aspects, but the oppositions have the most power on this day before Full Moon. Today's color is black.

Saturday:  Full Moon in Leo

Leo is the sign of creativity and performances, children and youthfulness. Full Moon in Leo has no direct aspects with other planets today. On Sunday, the Moon will square Mars in Scorpio. Both loyalty and stubbornness activate with that square. We'll not give up or give in easily. Today starts with Cancer Moon void of course 1:21 am to 2:21 pm ET. Health is a focus as is care and nurturing as the Moon and Jupiter align. Leo Moon, Full at 8:46 pm ET, easily leads to a party, a reason to dress up, meet friends and attend events.  Games and performances will be spirited and filled with personality. Give attention to children, express thanks for gifts and friendships, honor promises and vows.  This Full Moon can be quite delightful, glamorous and fun.  Gold is today's color.

Sunday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon forms two trines today. Saturn and Uranus, so different in nature, align with the Full Moon. Competition heats up as does Full Moon news. Full Moons lead to completions generally. Saturn in Sagittarius relates to serious life decisions, like where to attend college or send children to school for example. Uranus has a wild streak in Aries. Try not to move too impulsively during this Full Moon. Mercury will be direct Monday and conditions may be better for some announcements, scheduling and major purchases.  Today's color is purple.

Saturday, January 9, 2016

Weekly Astrology January 11th to 17th, 2016

Monday: Aquarius Moon

Aquarius Moon forms 3 sextiles, harmonious angles, with Saturn and Venus in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries. Spontaneous, original thinking is one result.  Be inspired, inspire others, listen to and receive advice without feeling you have to act on it right away.  Travel and relationship go well together. Mercury is retrograde so it's best to have flexibility and ability to change your route or your mind throughout the day.  Void of course Moon starts at 8:09 pm ET and lasts about 21 hours. Do today rather than put off until tomorrow. Today's color is light blue.

Tuesday: Venus sextile Saturn

Yesterday's aspects flow into this void of course Moon time which lasts until 6:53 pm ET. Venus and Uranus form a sextile in Sagittarius/Aries. All relationship and travel experiences are heightened. Whatever you are experiencing in these areas is accented and heated with this action in fire signs.  Enthusiasm about new love or adventure as well as unexpected eventfulness, welcome or unwelcome, are some effects.  It'll be easy to lose track of time or be led down another road or off course today. Lack of focus is likely.  Keep to routines unless you're enjoying a wild adventure.  Take a few safety precautions whatever you're up to. Pisces Moon 6:53 pm on for understanding and sensitivity. Today's color is light green.

Wednesday: Pisces Moon, Sun trine Jupiter

Pisces Moon interacts with several planets today. This may help you be creative or create a need to adapt and go with the flow. Mainly, stay realistic rather than allow Neptune to cloud your better judgment.  The Sun trine Jupiter in Capricorn/Virgo relates to health and abundance. Good news, blessings, opportunities, and celebration of accomplishments come with this alignment.  Stay actively involved in health and career goals.  Seek wise advice and leadership where it's needed.  Recognize others for their contributions and be grateful.  Today's color is green.

Thursday: Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde, Mercury trine Jupiter

Mercury exerts much influence with a trine to Jupiter in Virgo and a meeting with Sun in Capricorn. This continuation of the Sun trine Jupiter influence adds an element of communication. Good news may be shared, retroactive recognitions given, and beneficial reconnections happen on purpose or by chance. Earth sign energy rules, so act, do, heal, and stay grounded while leaving room for revisions and new information to come since Mercury is retrograde until the 25th.  Return to an activity or place that was once a favorite.  It's an excellent time for temporary solutions and experimenting safely. Void of course Pisces Moon begins at 11:31 am, and Aries Moon arrives at 9:48 pm  Today's color is yellow.

Friday: Moon trine Saturn

Aries Moon aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius. Consider how to realize your dreams. What can you do or who can you go to for help and advice around education, global experiences or opportunities to expand and connect on a broader level? It's true that Mercury is retrograde, but this doesn't have to be something you act on overnight. Get serious about something you're always talking or daydreaming about. Reach out for information you can use soon. People will be enthusiastic and sound committed to new options today. Wear red.

Saturday: Aries Moon

There's a bit of everything as the Moon contacts a handful of planets and the Sun. Multi-tasking, feeling distracted or enjoying variety are all good possibilities.  Watch words that could be delivered too harshly during Mercury's square with the Aries Moon. Authority and the question of who's really in charge come up now. Uranus brings a quickness to events and news of the day. Do move and act with care especially after 6:46 pm when the Moon moves void of course until 12:48 am ET Sunday. Today's color is orange.

Sunday: Taurus Moon

The Moon is in Taurus from 12:48 am ET until Tuesday at 4:13 am ET.  As the Moon opposes Mars in Scorpio, stubborn confrontations become more likely. Feeling strongly does not have to mean butting heads. Can you hold onto your ideals and opinions without sharing while Mercury is retrograde? If not, because sometimes time is of the essence, can you at least stay out of a pointless debate? Say your peace and let go of the result. Make, do, create and enjoy the powers of your 5 senses. Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces. Today's color is pink.

Astrology January 4th to 10th, 2016

Sunday, January 31st, I'm guiding a very special, healing and restorative yoga event with Amy Gerow, Reiki healer, esthetician and intuitive.

Postures will be restorative in the classic sense, supported by props and held for minutes at a time. Aromatherapy options including essential oil for muscle and nerve health, female hormone balance, or cheering and lightening. You'll wear a patch so the scents will not be intrusive for the rest of the room. 
I will play crystal bowls and use solfreggio tuning forks that resonate to the tissues, organs and bones of the body with sound vibration. 

This is a very special event requiring pre-registration and capped at 20 participants.
2 hours of self care and relaxation. Registration in advance at Scarborough Yoga or online. 

Mercury in Aquarius stimulates scientific thinking, vision for the future & groups on a mission. I think of Aquarius as the absolute borderline of introvert processing information, seeing the world intellectually, & extrovert connecting with like minds, attracting people around a cause, an invention, creation of music (air), or literature. Mercury relates to technology & innovation while in Aquarius. For a few days Mercury is direct, then retrograde on Tuesday, & back into Capricorn Friday. The retrograde, when Mercury appears to be moving backwards from our perspective here on earth, lasts until January 25th & reenters Aquarius February 13th to March 5th. Collaborative ventures & group projects slow down & are up for revisions. Groups may go through leadership shake ups & changes in mission statement. The build of Mercury's retrograde is in Capricorn, sign of organizations & order. The larger groups you belong to, administrations, corporations, & even non profit or loosely organized groups are directly involved in the approaching retrograde. Do you need to step up to a leadership role? Does the system need to change in order to function better? Are the knowledgable people, the trainers & visionaries, in place? Organizations & systems need support this month. Mercury, planet of communication & transportation, impacts personal plans too. Open your options to routine & schedule changes. Experiment & explore this month, setting new things in place after January 25th.

Monday: Scorpio Moon

The waning Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces, Pluto and the Sun in Capricorn.  Put energy into building and organizing.  A mix of water and earth, feeling and sensing, creativity and constructiveness, helps with balance. Channel emotion into tangible products from reorganizing the house or workplace to designing, writing or other art.  Interpersonal matters will likely be met with a detached, unemotional response. Try not to sink into passive manipulation or aggression which could be a tendency. It's a good day to deal with private, personal matters effectively.  Wear black.

Tuesday: Mercury retrograde, Void of course Moon

The conditions lean toward confusing, so balance that with simplicity.  Mercury retro begins at 8:06 am ET, 5:06 am Pacific.  Scorpio Moon is void of course, a transition time, from 12:47 pm on (to 1:56 am Wednesday.) Mercury squares Mars, layering potential aggression or anger with the uncertain nature of the day. Legal matters and partnership disagreements could have strong undercurrents including deception and undermining.  The Sun meets Pluto for disclosures and revelations. News and information could be especially dramatic. Avoid the gossip that follows, remembering it's better to say less while Mercury retraces his path. Venus squares Neptune bringing up questions of realism versus sentimentality.  In some cases, if you've overly romanticized a person or situation, you'll snap out of it quickly and perhaps unpleasantly. There's a lot in the works today, and it will be obvious that things have been building and moving under the surface even if you were unaware.  Instincts and discretion are traits to live by.  Today's color is purple.

Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon

At 1:56 am the Moon moves to Sagittarius and forms a sextile to Mercury retrograde in Aquarius. This facilitates connections with friends, colleagues and people abroad or across country. Moon and Venus meet on this appealing travel day.  Make some peace with your relationship status, and enjoy freedom within the structure of a relationship or the open space of single life.  Pursue an interest. Feel the pull to a book, a training, or a group that stimulates your mind and satisfies the desire for new or renewed interests. Today's color is light blue.

Thursday: Moon conjunct Saturn, Sun square Uranus

Uranus instigates revolutions, awakenings, and surprises.  Planet of originality and rebellion aligns with the Moon and squares the Sun today. Uranus is immature in Aries, often too fiery or destructive, though in Aries this planet also has the power to change things radically in what seems like the blink of an eye.  Today the Sun at odds with Uranus is a battle between traditional and alternative or radical. Power struggles are one result.  It's a tough square to reconcile since these signs are so different, Capricorn like the elder and the authority, ruled by Saturn, and Aries like the teenager or child, ruled by Mars.  Most likely it's best to chill out, stop the tug of war, and resume this discussion at another time.  The Moon and Uranus are mutually supportive, with a trine today, so we may lean toward impulsive and emotionally reactive. While Mercury is retrograde, especially, this could lead to regrets.  Saturn meets the Moon with a cautionary message, to act maturely even if you're feeling fiery.  Void of course Moon starts at 9:44 pm ET, and Jupiter begins a retrograde in Virgo at 11:40 pm ET. Jupiter is Sagittarius's planet and the retrograde time may be most relevant as it coincides with Mercury retrograde and is a time to reevaluate honesty and integrity as well as education and global pursuits.  Jupiter is retrograde half the time so you may not notice the effects specifically so much as philosophically. It's another layer of the retrograde experience of this month, generally.  Today's color is turquoise. 

Friday: Mercury retrograde in Capricorn

At 10:07 am ET, the Moon transitions to Capricorn, sign of tomorrow's New Moon. Mercury backs into Capricorn for the remainder of the month, impacting plans, transportation, systems, organization, leadership, and our ways with words (to name a few things!). You could find yourself retracing recent steps and changing your mind.  Venus and Saturn meet in Sagittarius. This is a very odd conjunction in that Venus is beauty and love, Saturn is wisdom and challenge, and Sagittarius is a sign of freedom and truths.  One anticipated effect is honest talk about relationships and about expansion and travel plans. Just keep in mind Mercury is retrograde and it's not the most reliable time to decide or even communicate well. Keep plans and schedules flexible and minimal. Find some freedom to wander, explore or reconnect with friends.  Rethink things, even if you're saving decisions for a more optimal time. Options are good. Today's color is green.

Saturday: New Moon in Capricorn

It's always interesting when New Moon falls during Mercury retrograde. A push, pull, forward, back motion is created.  If you're not sure what to do during the retrograde, do less, take care of simple things, and avoid the major announcement or decision. Let things pend, quietly process, and prepare with review and revision of goals or projects.  The Moon meets Pluto, planet related to the subconscious and innate.  Consider how to move past anxiety, fear, and any past that haunts you or a pattern you haven't broken yet.  New Moon is at 8:31 pm ET. Reorganize and clean, but make sure you remember your own system! Write ideas down and make lists.  White is today's color.

Sunday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon

Capricorn Moon starts the day. New Moon energy is supported by Jupiter in Virgo and Mercury in Capricorn, both retrograde.  See the advantage and possibility of revisiting things for more consideration or simply for pleasure.  Interesting and expected or surprise reunions happen. You might just run into someone you haven't seen in a long time.  Take care of easy tasks and to do lists. Feel productive without pushing. Create abundance.  From 12:39 to 3:23 pm the Moon is void of course, moving to Aquarius.  The Moon squares Mars in Scorpio tonight, 10:31 pm ET. You can't force square pegs into round openings. That is the lesson and the key to conflicts tonight. Going your own way is preferable into coercing or trying too hard.  Wear silver.
