Robin's Zodiac Zone April 13th to 18th, 2017: Mercury Retrograde

Thursday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn and opposes Mars in Taurus. The tendency is to stick with your opinions and what you believe in. Spiritual beliefs and intuition are heightened. It's not a good day to have to state your case or convince someone to change their mind. Stay centered. Romance is also favored*. Today's color is Indigo.

Friday: Scorpio Moon void of course from 12:18 am EDT to 6:27 am, a good time for dreaming. Dream states are stimulated as is instinct and intuition. Moon and Venus align so it could be a romantic night.* Sagittarius Moon for the rest of Friday and Saturday, and the Sun meets Uranus in Aries. Situations will be surprising, newsworthy and in some cases wild or out of control. Genius ideas come. Write things down to follow up on later. Capture the moment or the inspiration in some way.  There's a bold and impulsive streak present.  Make sure actions won't come back to 'bite you' in the future. Magnetic attractions occur at times like this, and Aries you're in the midst of that. Today's color is Red.

Saturday: Venus is direct again, in Pisces, at 6:18 am. Relationship, love, and partnership matters are highlighted for weeks ahead. Fresh starts and new love is favored. Mercury is still retrograde, however.  One on one relationships may smooth out or become exciting and vibrant, but remember to keep communication clear. Promises are better saved for after May 3rd. Sag Moon square to Neptune in Pisces and in harmony with Jupiter retro in Libra. Uncertainty, delays, and reasons to renegotiate or change plans make today feel a bit unstable. Consider what is most fair to all parties. Today's color is Light Blue.

Sunday: In the midst of Passover and Easter Sunday, the Moon changes signs, from Sag to Capricorn at 7:05 pm. Void Moon from 2:26 to 7:05 pm EDT. Moon harmonizes with the Sun and Mercury and meets Saturn for an eventful day. Important topics come up, though final decisions are best saved for May. However, you can find temporary solutions or decide to try something out successfully during Mercury retro. Be willing to negotiate and explore.  Moon square to Venus and Venus in harmony with Mars makes relationships interesting and top of mind. Good chemistry between Venus and Mars is helpful especially to Pisces and Taurus and their Scorpio and Virgo partners. New and interesting romantic or creative partnerships light up for Scorpio and Capricorn.  People may very well be getting along better. Mixed feelings are an undercurrent, and it's fine to keep a bit of healthy skepticism as to how things will go. Live in the moment and take people as they come and as they are today. Reunions of all sorts are characteristic of this time period. Today's color is Green.

Monday: Capricorn Moon, and the Aries Sun aligns with Capricorn ruling planet, Saturn. Structure is a key theme. Organize, and if you're clearing things out, be thoughtful. Mercury is retro, so if you're uncertain just makes piles and hang onto things until you feel sure they're no longer wanted. The Sun and Saturn put structure around ideas and plans. You can lay some really great groundwork for a plan you hope to launch this spring or summer. Put in the effort. Be up front and honest. Today's color is Yellow.

Tuesday: The Moon and Pluto meet in Capricorn. Moon also squares Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Libra. Those cardinal sign squares often hit hot buttons. Try not to be triggered by 'old stuff'. Leadership needs come up. Who's ready to get past a fear or uncertainty and move the group forward? Overdue recognitions or promotions will come for some of you. Mercury is retro, but don't let that stop you. Just proceed with an open mind. Today's color is Black.

Wednesday: Capricorn Moon void from 5:57 am to 6:52 am EDT (very short void Moon). Aquarius Moon sets in then. The Sun spends a few more hours in Aries season and moves to Taurus at 5:27 pm EDT. This is the cusp day. Moon aligns with Venus and Mars on the overnight/early hours, and squares the Sun and Mercury retrograde in Taurus.  If you're dissatisfied, do something other than complaining. Avoid gossip. Use facts to back up statements or documentation.  Today is meant for methodical and logical thinking and problem solving. Wear Turquoise.
