RoZoYo® birthday workshop info & registration

Monday: Sagittarius Moon conjunct Mars

At 2:46 am EDT, the Moon moves to Sagittarius for movement and action. Mars adds to the effect with boldness, courage, and willingness to confront. Have awareness so you don't push too far and achieve an effect opposite what you really want.  Be honest without being blunt, for example. Sagittarius Moon can put us out of touch with feelings, especially where Mars is so enthusiastic today. If you're moving, for example, remember that others are probably sad about you leaving regardless of how excited you are.  Education, global travel and business, and transportation matters are activated.  If you need a new vehicle, this is a decent time to be looking or buying, before a later spring Mercury retrograde.  The Moon and Sun align for energy, confidence, and newness.  Level of activity and enthusiasm are likely to heighten.  Neptune squares the Moon. Be aware of escapist tendencies and find relief and creativity in healthy ways versus altered states. Today's color is light blue.

Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon conjunct Saturn & trine Mercury, Mercury trine Saturn

Saturn is the planet of sage advice, wisdom, challenge and responsibility. Ruler of Capricorn, Saturn requests structure, sensibility, and maturity.  Sagittarius is a sign of free thinking and philosophy. You may ponder the meaning and purpose of life on a day like this. Freedom and responsibility, and how they co-exist, is a theme. Decisions, determinations and agreements will be made as Mercury and Saturn align in the fire signs. Get or give the go ahead on a project, move, or travel plan.  Legal matters activate for resolution.  University and other program acceptances come. Be decisive and promote your own growth. The Moon aspects 5 planets on this day of variety and eventfulness.  Much of this will go easy, though relationship negotiations require more effort. Void of course Moon is from 9:55 pm to 1:45 pm EDT on Wednesday. Today's color is yellow.

Wednesday: Sag to Capricorn Moon

Void of course Moon starts the day. Timeliness is questionable. Mercury is square to Pluto. Examine motives and avoid being on either side of manipulative actions. Choose words creatively as  you express deep feelings including concerns.  Save important business or purchases for 1:45 pm EDT on. Capricorn Moon has no aspects in the afternoon and evening. Organize, take charge as needed, and get things done.  Today's color is black.

Thursday: Capricorn Moon conjunct Pluto, Mercury conjunct Uranus

Unexpected announcements and system changes are due. Capricorn energy is authoritative, so the news will trickle down from whomever or whatever organization is in charge.  There's also a reflective nature to Moon/Pluto conjunction, and questions of leadership, reality, and willingness come up.  Mercury and Uranus favor innovative, pioneering approaches. The different-ness will bother some and excite others.  Change and growth are in the air today. Welcome it or adjust if you don't like it. The inevitability will be evident.  Do hands on work and show results.  Today's color is green.

Friday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon

The Capricorn Moon is solid for morning meetings and negotiations. Look for common ground as some tension results from two morning squares.  Uranus squares the Moon indicating quick fixes are needed.  Leaders could emerge, but that doesn't mean everyone instantly jumps on board. Work through obstacles before 12:39 pm EDT when the void of course Moon starts. Get to routine tasks and organization after that time. Hold the phone unless you're up for a lengthy conversation. The Moon and Venus form a compatible sextile for a blend of imaginative, versatile and practical approaches. It may also help people get along better.  At 9:37 pm EDT, the Moon moves to Aquarius, sign of friendship, community and uniqueness. It's a nice night out, though late night work involving your own projects is appealing too. Gather with people who share your mission, or for fun. Today's color is blue.

Saturday: Aquarius Moon

Moon in harmony with Mars in Sagittarius and the Sun in Aries makes for an optimistic, energetic day. Enjoy time with friends or at events. Aquarius Moon time is friendly, inventive, and fixed on goals.  Original thinking, brainstorming, and scientific processes are favored all weekend. The pace may be fast, but you can find your own flow within it. Today's color is silver.

Sunday:  Aquarius Moon sextile Uranus, Saturn, Mercury

Today is much like Saturday, with harmony between Moon and planets. Serious decisions could be made or announced today. We're still adjusting to eclipse eventfulness this spring, and change continues to pervade the environment and impact us. You may be a bystander or directly involved in those processes. People will tend to say what they mean today, but conversations are favored and may go more easily than anticipated.  Be direct and realistic.  At 7:16 pm, void of course Moon time starts (until 1:45 am EDT). Today's color is turquoise.

Weekly Astrology March 21st to 27th, 2016

Monday: Mercury in Aries

Mercury follows the Sun to Aries at 8:19 pm EDT.  Progressive ideas are likely and the tendency to initiate grows for the next few weeks. Mercury is direct all month though Saturn retrograde begins this Friday the 25th. There's a good window of opportunity right now. Also, with the lunar eclipse arriving Wednesday at 8:01 am, a series of eclipses completes and therefore, much activity around closure including endings that were long in the works even if they seem abrupt.  Today the Moon is in Virgo, void of course tonight at 11:55 pm EDT all through Tuesday and until Wednesday at 1:23 am EDT. That's quite a long v.o.c. time so do business today and get details of travel, meetings, contracts and other events of this week sorted out and clear to all involved.  The Moon opposes Neptune and Venus in Pisces, squares Saturn in Sag and forms a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. The effects vary, however do what you can to tie up looses ends, meet due dates and create best case scenarios on this Virgo Moon day. Use versatile thinking and methods. The Moon and Jupiter favor approvals, healthy decisions, and growth. Today's color is yellow.

Tuesday: Void of Course Moon

The Moon is in Virgo, void of course all day. Stick to a plan that's been decided on. Last minute changes could be very confusing. Do routine tasks and work toward a goal, especially if it's something due this week. Have a thoughtful editor. Double check calendars and appointment times. Rest and exercise lightly. This isn't the time to push too hard. The Full Moon energy may exaggerate things. Find the value in moderation. Jupiter is square to Saturn, a difficult combination if you're trying to settle a decision or dispute. That angle is exact on Wednesday at 6:15 am and the hours leading up to it are characterized by discussions or inner turmoil focused on expansion versus limitation as well as limiting beliefs and lack of faith and optimism.  The Moon is just hours from Full this evening and the eclipse is at 8:01 am EDT Wednesday. Today's color is brown.

Wednesday: Lunar Eclipse in Libra

The lunar eclipse in Libra ends a 2 1/2 year series in Libra/Aries. Mercury is also opposite the Moon and meeting the Sun on this day. Mars in Sagittarius supports the Moon near eclipse time.  Eclipse effects and events are rarely things you would have predicted. Outcomes will surprise and in some cases, unsettle or disturb the balance. However, these endings and beginnings have been in the works, even if they've been obscured. Eclipses illuminate, accelerate, and in this case, finalize things. The Sun and Mercury in Aries lead to announcements, news, self expression and initiation. It's an eclipse of air and fire that sets us up for concluding chapters with partners (of any sort). Finalize settlements, and expect dynamic, rapid changes.  Resetting balance and correcting injustices are part of Full Moon in Libra's work. Today's color is white.

Thursday: Libra Moon opposite Uranus, Mercury trine Mars

Change is the one surefire effect of Wednesday's lunar eclipse. The next two weeks hold the most eclipse power and then around April's Full Moon the vibrations will grow again. Today, with Uranus opposing the Moon, change could feel abrupt, chaotic, or in some cases very welcome- though quick! Whether you're taken by surprise, swept off your feet or need alternate plans in a flash, Mercury and Mars align for action. Travel plans are influenced and spontaneous plans may be needed or schedules may shift with little notice. There's also activity around education, higher learning and training, global business and connections, and of course relationships and roles, the primary focus of the lunar eclipse. The Moon is void of course from 4:55 pm EDT until 2:09 pm on Friday. Take smart precautions and no unnecessary risks then. Today's color is lavender.

Friday: Libra to Scorpio Moon, Venus opposite Jupiter and square Saturn

The Moon is void until 2:09 pm EDT. Let the early hours be simple if possible. Take things as they come. Avoid overreacting or over worry. It's a good morning for a leisurely start. If not, avoid arguments and do check the calendar since things may be easily forgotten or overlooked. It could be a good time to ask forgiveness and be pardoned.  Venus opposes Jupiter in Pisces/Virgo and later squares Saturn. Be realistic with your partner or ex. Try to avoid hurt feelings. Be sensitive as your sort out situations. Responsibility could be a hot topic today. Growing and changing in positive ways is possible now. Don't overdo or exaggerate an issue. Get to the point and find consensus or compromise. Try not to agree to something you know you won't be able to achieve or follow through with. These Venus aspects relate to Jupiter square Saturn early in the week and closure of an ordeal, misunderstanding or negotiation could come now. Today's color is pink.

Saturday: Scorpio Moon

The Scorpio Moon is in harmony with Venus and Jupiter. Love and creativity are favored. Venus sextile Uranus may show up as relationship status changes. The eclipse continues to be an agent of partnership changes that were due, as well. Sun in Aries aligns with Mars for a fiery, passionate and dynamic day. Whatever is initiated, the tendency is to go full force.  Today's color is red.

Sunday: Scorpio Moon

Scorpio Moon aligns with Pluto, an introverted influence, and is then aligns with Venus and is void of course from 3:25 am until 2:46 am EDT on Monday. This is Easter and there is a spiritual aspect even if you are not into religious holidays or celebrations.  Scorpio and Pluto relate to things we cannot see or prove. Venus in Pisces stimulates intuition and empathy. Feelings are amplified.  Find some peace today. Wear purple.

Sunday, March 13, 2016

Weekly Astrology March 14th to 20th, 2016

Monday: Gemini Moon

The zodiac buzzes with activity on this Gemini Moon day. Saturn squares Mercury and opposes the Moon. Contractual and other terms are up for discussion and it could be a slow process. However, Saturn provides the seriousness needed for a workable agreement. Too much debate could lead to arguments. If the meeting starts going downhill fast, it may be  best to call a truce or put things on hold. Venus squares Mars and relationship matters require some flexibility. Consider freedom and ability to pursue individual interests without losing a relationship in the process. It can be done. Squares dominate the heavens today, and in general that indicates much effort and attention is required. Solutions don't arrive magically under these conditions.  Decide what's worth your energy and time. Today's color is gold.

Tuesday: Mercury opposite Jupiter & sextile Pluto

Think back a week to events around the solar eclipse when the Sun opposed Jupiter. Today, Mercury opposes Jupiter, activating similar themes. On this 2nd quarter Moon day, half way to Full and the lunar eclipse, news and related changes come. Pisces and Virgo host this activity which results in growth and transformation. Mercury involves creativity, empathy, and sensitivity with words. Jupiter in Virgo aims for long term expansion around health and healing as well as food related themes like altering diet and constructing as well as other hands on work. For example, decide how to learn a new skill, for example through coursework or apprenticeship. Then expand that skill into a business.  If you've been considering that, the conditions may present themselves now.  In some cases, word received will feel transformative and something will be never quite the same.  Pluto adds that element, and don't fear it because change can be very good and necessary.  How can you shift from caterpillar to butterfly or shed old skin?  From 1:03 pm to 8:57 pm the Moon is void of course, then moves to Cancer.  Moon and Sun square can create a bit of internal stress, but a healthy amount of stress can lead to growth.  Challenge yourself without overdoing it. Today's color is white.

Wednesday: Jupiter trine Pluto

Pluto active with Jupiter leads to healing and letting go of outworn thought patterns. A healthier self image and openness to possibility can be the results.  The Cancer Moon aligns with Venus and Neptune. It's a loving, caring, compassionate day. With all this feeling energy, do not devolve into drama.  See things for what they are. Show caring or understanding for the ones you love, in healthy ways.  Family and home are highlighted during Cancer Moon. Follow a transformative path.  Today's color is blue.

Thursday: Cancer Moon opposite Pluto

Moon opposite Pluto is a continuation of yesterday's forecast. Process on an inner level even if you're not ready to express it to the world.  Cancer and Capricorn host the action.  Depth and introversion characterize changes going on inside.  All week and during March eclipses, evolutionary energy surrounds us.  The Moon aligns with Mercury for creative writers. Keep in touch with family and things going on around home. Today's color is light blue (with your St Pat's green of course!).

Friday: Leo Moon

The Moon is void of course at 12:09 am EDT until 3:54 am. Moon in Leo aligns with Mars in Sagittarius. Lots of energy and activation come from this fire sign alignment.  Be active, celebrate, find your fun friends, and move your body.  Hikes, road trips, theater and other performances are favored.  Kids may have excess energy so you plan for that. Be entertained.  Today's color is red.

Saturday: Leo Moon

The Moon is in harmony with Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius. There are echoes of Friday's forecast, yet more sense of obligation and potentially less freedom.  Do settle a business matter or anything else requiring focus and decision making. Take situations seriously.  Don't blow something important off.  Certain things may happen fast. Keep wits about you. Work before play.  At 4:43 pm EDT the Moon moves void until 1:39 pm EDT Sunday. Today's color is orange.

Sunday: Leo to Virgo Moon, Sun to Aries

This is the Spring Equinox and International Astrology Day.  The Sun shifts to Aries at 12:30 am EDT. Venus and Neptune have a creative, theatrical, harmonious and romantic influence in Pisces. Plan something special, or in Aries spirit, allow something to happen spontaneously. Enjoy the moment. The Moon and Mars square so try to avoid debates over philosophical differences. Value another's opinion, or respect it, even if quite different from yours. At 1:39 pm the Moon moves to Virgo. Today's color is navy blue.

Monday: Moon conjunct Venus and Mercury

Venus is about to follow Mercury to Pisces. Today the Moon meets Venus in Aquarius at 3:46 am, moves void of course, and sails to Pisces at 2:08 pm ET. The solar eclipse is in Pisces tomorrow at 8:54 pm and changes come with the speed of light. Today, before New Moon, rethink things. Even better, clear your mind as entirely as possible and try to have no specific expectation since eclipses surprise, awaken, and potentially blow our minds.  A clean sweep may be called for in a variety of situations, literal and metaphorical.  What needs to go? Pisces Moon meets Mercury, sign of speech, written words, planning, and transportation.  Planet of intellect in a sign of emotion asks that we get align our feelings and thoughts. Remember that emotion is an impermanent state.  A mix of objective perspective and subjective experience can keep you and your relationships in balance.  Knowing that an eclipse is coming, try to keep plans flexible and promises at a minimum for now. Today's color is yellow.

Tuesday: Solar Eclipse in Pisces, Sun and Moon opposite Jupiter

Let go of emotions and ideas that hold you back from healing and self expression as a solar eclipse initiates change. Transformation on the inside is necessary. Eclipse events will alter perspective, philosophy of life, relationships, and intentions.  The weeks ahead contain healing,  awakening and and finally "getting it".  Holding onto an emotion or state of mind may not be possible. A change you couldn't have foreseen leads to a new path.  An option closes and new doors open.  It's not necessarily easy. Trust is important during life changes, and yet Neptune meets the Moon at 6:11 am ET so it's equally essential that you don't romanticize, excuse, or believe only in what you choose.  Intuition is heightened by all this Pisces energy. Feel your way through. Don't expect everything overnight or rush your own process.  This solar eclipse is represented by the teacher/student, mentor/apprentice dynamic.  Often the student is also a teacher to the master, remember that. These roles are reversible.  What needs to be absorbed and learned this week? One must pay attention and be willing to receive and practice wisdom and mastery.  Recognize that we are always students, really.  Jupiter in Virgo reminds us to serve others, seek practical options, and expand our methods and skills. There's also a theme of fertility. Nurture growth and possibility as you plant any kind of seed. The eclipse is at 8:54 pm ET. Today's color is white.

note: "The total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Indonesia including Sumatra, Borneo, and Sulawesi, and from locations in the Pacific Ocean. Observers in northern and eastern Australia, in South Asia, and in East Asia will be able to see a partial eclipse."

Wednesday: Pisces to Aries Moon

The Moon moves to Aries, the action starter, after a void Moon time from 8:54 pm Tuesday night until 2:40 pm ET.  News may rock the morning, and during void of course Moon it's probably best not to overreact.  Stick to easy routines until 2:40 ET. Mars, Aries' planet, forms a trine to the Moon from Sagittarius. After a water sign (emotional) eclipse, this is fiery (dynamic, willful)  in contrast.  Things appear to, or in fact really do. speed up.  There's a boldness in the air that may be too much considering the changes, evolving news, and personal situations the solar eclipse is initiating now.  If it seems like backing off or hanging in the balance for a bit might help a situation out, do that.  Overreactions are likely today. Wear orange.

Thursday: Aries Moon trine Saturn, conjunct Uranus

Today looks like a wild one, even if that's not visible on the surface.  Release of tension is likely and more unexpected happenings are in store.  Practice being non reactive and find a healthy outlet for stress. Let a friend rely on you and vent over a problem.  Do everything with a bit of extra caution and do not put yourself in a position of compromise or vulnerability. Can you let things be, just for today? Wear black.

Friday: Mercury conjunct Neptune

Vibes of Tuesday's eclipse are in the air as Mercury and Neptune meet close to the scene of the solar eclipse.  Trust is today's theme. It must be earned by other people. Yet, the process and the sequence of events are not in our control during eclipse times. Control your response, though you cannot change events themselves.  If you can't see the meaning or the potential in what's changing now, at least find ways to be healthy and channel sadness, stress or even overstimulation. The Moon is in Aries, void of course from 1:24 pm to 2:44 pm ET. Taurus Moon follows. Keep that hour+ quiet and free of pressure. Moon and Venus align for travels, social happenings, and friendship. Be cautious and judicious with where you place trust and your valuables today, and all week long.  Today's color is  light blue.

Saturday: Venus in Pisces

Venus moves to Pisces, a sensitive, romantic spot for the planet of love and harmony.  Through March and into early April, Venus favors more creativity, fertility, compassion, empathy, and infatuations. Pisces, Scorpio, and Virgo should be feeling the love.  Taurus Moon aligns with planets in Pisces, Virgo, and Capricorn for ease with what needs to be done. Something you're not sure about could fall together quickly today.  Be loyal, constructive, and attuned to what your physical body needs, like nourishment, exercise, and rest.  Today's color is pink.

Sunday: Daylight Savings time Begins

Shift your clock overnight. This is the first day of extended daylight. The Moon is void of course from 5:46 am to 5:03 pm EDT. Moon sextile the Sun is harmonious and can help with confidence and decisions. Void Moon along with time change can have a spacey, surreal effect though. Try to be certain before agreeing. Moon squares Venus at 8:21 pm and then opposes Mars at 9:42 pm. Relationship decisions and conversations require effort and patience under Gemini Moon tonight. Today's color is yellow.
