Robin's Zodiac Zone March 30th to April 5th, 2017

Thursday: Taurus Moon meets Mars, headstrong and persistent.  Opinions will be hard to change. Expect long term results of what you act on. Jupiter squares Pluto in Libra and Capricorn. Wisdom comes from soul searching. Some will skip the soul centered approach in favor of pushing agendas and manipulating their way through situations instead.  Overpowering energy and force are to be contended with. Stay centered in what you know to be right.  Avoid any tendency to go too far.  At 7:12 pm EDT the Moon moves void of course until 12:40 pm on Friday. Do routine tasks and physical exercise or work.  Today's color is Blue.

Friday: Change is a key concept as the void of course Moon shifts into mutable Gemini at 12:40 pm EDT. Morning is for easygoing routines.  Mercury moves to Taurus at 1:31 pm and changes the mindset. Ideas and plans will change as Mercury rules our minds and communication. Long term decisions are in fashion. The Moon sextile Venus retrograde in Aries leads to flirtation, interesting reconnections, and good talks with old friends.  People will appreciate choices rather than directives. Focus is not today's strongest suit.  Wear Green.

Saturday: Gemini Moon aligns with the Sun and with Jupiter. Optimistic and centered on interactions with others, this Gemini Moon favors socials, meetings, gatherings and mingling.  The Moon squares Neptune so there is a duplicity or shadow side you may feel sensitive to. Use strong judgment about who or what to trust. Today's color is Yellow.

Sunday: Venus is retrograde until April 15th, moving back into Pisces at 8:25 pm EDT, emphasizing reasons to take a close look at our relationship dynamics.  How can you improve your one on one relationships? Does it begin with communication or self improvement or a change in habits? Reflect on love and partnership to re-align anything out of sync or imbalanced. Pink is today's color.

Monday: Cancer Moon, 2nd quarter, signals a time to feel progress. Multiple aspects between planets could create mixed feelings. Nurture those you love, confront your own fears, be ready to think quickly yet not react defensively. Protectiveness and sensitivity are predominant energies during this Cancer Moon. Wear Light Blue.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon until 6:13 pm, void of course from 4:45 pm EDT until then. Cancer Moon squares Uranus which may start the day off with anxiety or uncertainty. Cancer Moon aligns with Venus retrograde in Pisces for revisiting emotions and relationships. It's a sentimental time.  Leo Moon moves in for socializing, though you 'll want to avoid disagreements tonight. Avoid a needless war of words.  Today's color is Purple.

Wednesday: Leo Moon powers up this period between New and Full Moon. A couple of purposeful days in a row lead to action, movement toward goals, and binding agreements. The fixed nature of Leo, resulting in loyalty and promises, combines with the Aries Sun, fiery and full of initiative. Mercury in Taurus squares the Moon for persistent effort and tough but effective negotiations. Be willing to work on the details and sort through differences to get to the heart of a matter and resolve it before Mercury retrograde (and just before Saturn is retrograde too). Today's color is Gold.

Thursday: Aquarius Moon compatible with Venus and the Sun in Aries. Think new and different. Approach a relationship or group meeting with fresh ideas and perspective.  Don't assume nothing has changed. The Moon and Mars are square in fixed signs for long term implications of what we do today. Mercury is square to Pluto, and that could make you overthink or feel anxious.  Be truthful with yourself and do not challenge those in authority unless you are very confident in the outcome. Today's color is Turquoise.

Friday: Mercury opposes Jupiter as the Aquarius Moon aligns with that same planet. Mercury and uranus are in harmony with the Moon. There are qualities of quickness and vastness at work. Things happen fast and in larger than life ways. Surprises occur on days like this. Aim for agreement and get out of stubborn patterns or disagreements. Where there's will, there are ways. Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Void Moon 1:56 to 6:06 am and then Moon to Pisces. Careful in those wee hours. Sun and Venus together are hopeful, sexy, energetic and exciting. It's a good day for a date or any sort of new adventure or experience.  Orange is today's color.

Sunday: Pisces Moon sextile to Mars in Taurus and in conjunction with Neptune. Love, romance, sensitivity and versatility result. Mercury meets Uranus for wild ideas and exciting interactions. Do be intentional with words and keep tempers in check. New Moon is tomorrow, so examine your motivations and plan for next moves now.  Today's color is Pink.

Monday: Pisces Moon void of course 6:19 to 10:11 am EDT. Those hours may be confusing or spacey. Where do you need to be then? Set your alarm or write yourself a prominent note rather than miss something.  Mars meets Neptune in Pisces for dynamic art and enhanced imagination. Create something stunning.  New Moon is 10:57 pm EDT, 7:57 pm Pacific. It's a big New Moon for courageous and brave moves. This is truly like a new year. Resolve to act on your strongest will and passions. Be heroic, even for yourself. Red is today's color.

Tuesday: New Moon energy fills the day. Act even in the face of fear as Moon squares Pluto or the face of opposition as Jupiter is across in Libra. This is a good day for compromises and getting past something you consider a road block. Fairness is essential. Tonight, as things move fast use extra care and strong instincts. Wear White today.

Wednesday: Void Moon 8:07 am to 11:48 am EDT. Take care of routine tasks. Surprising news could take over the early hours after Moon met Uranus and Mercury during the night and early morning. Saturn aligns with the Moon and with Mercury for serious solutions and important discussions or documents today. Taurus Moon for agreements that not only last but will be very difficult to change or break later.  Know what you're doing. Keep your promises. Today's color is Yellow.

Friday: Moon aligns with Pluto and the Sun. Decide with confidence. Deal with a fear in productive ways. Move past something that's been holding you back. The Sun and Saturn square and life direction may cause strain and feel like a big issue. Yet, some things will happen more easily than expected. Don't bother forcing things or trying to tell someone what to do. There will be resistance where there's excessive pressure. Agreements can be worked out as long as freedoms are not being recklessly taken away or infringed upon. It's St Patrick's Day but it doesn't really look like a 'party day".

In the wake of two February eclipses, this is a month of change and adjustment.

Thursday: Taurus Moon begins 2:43 am ET. Strong willed and influenced by imaginative Neptune and communicative Mercury. It's a great day to hunker down with a writing project. Write a speech or a book, craft the logic around an advertising pitch, or rehearse anything from a conversation to a performance. As Jupiter opposes Uranus, we could be rattled by news. Think moderate and give yourself time to think before responding or reacting.  Aries and Libra, that opposition is in your sign and may be felt in relationship. Today's color is Yellow.

Friday: Taurus Moon aligns with Pisces Sun and Pluto in Capricorn. Void of course Moon begins at 10:20 am. It's a good day for most things, though during void of course Moon pause to make sure of your decisions and especially your purchases. Look for value over time and for quality, and invest accordingly. Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Venus retrograde begins. In relationships, you may notice a return to anything unresolved. People may come back into your life or get back in touch.  These weeks are not recommended for cosmetic surgery or tattoos or other changes in appearance. Remember,' it's a wise person who rules the stars and a food who's ruled by them' and make your decisions accordingly. Venus is direct on April 15th. This period is uncertain for starting new romantic relationships though certainly I wouldn't rule that out if you're attracted. Be adaptable with forming relationships, in other words keep the expectations light and easy. At 5:05 am ET the Moon moves to Gemini for a social Saturday. Mercury and Neptune meet in Pisces for artists, intuition, and going with the flow.  Today's color is Pink.

Sunday: Gemini Moon with many aspects to planets and the Sun. Mars trine Saturn. Agreements and negotiations are worth time and effort. Even difficult subjects can be worked through with willing participation. Do put action behind your words and be on the lookout for those who are all talk. Today's color is Gold.

Monday: From 3:22 to 7:54 am ET, the Moon is void of course in Gemini. So if that's wake up and go time for you, make sure you remember appointments and items you need for the day. It's a forgetful time. Double check the alarm and other similar things. The morning could seem out of sorts or moody even as Cancer Moon arrives at 7:54 am. The Sun meets Mercury for an important business and news day. Business may be more personal. Sometimes Cancer Moon time leads to defensive and protective feelings and actions.  Today's color is White.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon with lots of activity and aspects. Challenges include fair decision making, protecting others and your own best interests, and facing fears and emotions.  On the plus side, creativity shines. Mercury and Pluto are aligning overnight, and this can be good for decisions, problem solving and intimate talks. Today's color is Light Blue.

Wednesday: See Mercury and Pluto info above ^. Discuss topics with sensitivity and willingness today. From 9:59 to 11:45 am ET, the Moon is void of course.  Cancer Moon squares Mars in Aries and conflicts of interest are evident and come up for resolution. Leo Moon from 11:45 am ET. Ask forgiveness or a favor then. Today's color is Purple.
