Robin's Zodiac Zone June 29th to July 5th, 2017

Thursday: Virgo Moon for analytical thinking, problem solving and finding flexible or alternate solutions.  Mercury across from Pluto reveals secrets and fears and encourages resolving or acknowledging them with care.  Take care with the messages you convey to others, especially family and 'corporate' family if you are part of a large organization.  Void Moon 4:35 pm EDT to 3:02 am EDT Friday. Today's color is Black.

Friday: Libra Moon from 3:02 am EDT with emphasis on Justice. The 2nd quarter Moon is 8:51 pm EDT. This time in the lunar cycle is best for progress. With Libra Moon, consider progress in love relationships and all partnerships, consensus and compromise.  Fairness and feelings are today's key themes. Lavender is our daily color.

Saturday: Libra Moon meets Jupiter, squares 3 planets and aligns with Saturn retrograde. Some retrograde type thinking and decisions may be due. Patience is not the same as putting things off. Patience may be wise, but procrastinating isn't recommended. Can you distinguish whether you're doing one or other? If fear or discouraging messages are holding you back, consider how that may never change until you take the leap. Face consequences if need be. They also will always be there. Today's color is Blue.

Sunday: Void Moon in Libra 9:16 am to 12:59 pm EDT. Flexible plans go best as things change and people may not show up or arrive on time. Save solid decisions and definitive actions for after 1 pm EDT (or make them before the void Moon time). Mars opposes Pluto and may just 'not feel good' for part or all of the day. Mars is a fish out of water in the sign Cancer, not quite knowing how to act or  how to deal with emotions. Pluto pushes for transformation and metamorphosis. This may feel like growing anger or resentment or feel like growing pains. Try to calm your responses and actions. The Moon is also opposing Uranus. All of this can lead us to be overwhelmed in some way. Scorpio Moon moves in and is also intense as well as passionate.  Today's color is Maroon.

Monday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Neptune. Romance and passion spark. It's a day for artists and dreamers. Actions will have long term meaning and lasting power though. Understand what you're engaging in or agreeing too, even silently.  Moon and Sun are in harmony for deep feeling, sentiment, reunions, and intuition. Today's color is Indigo Blue.

Tuesday: Independence Day in the USA. Scorpio Moon all day, void at 9:34 pm EDT. Venus moves to Gemini at 8:11 pm EDT. Venus is social and flirtatious, connecting us for friendships or love with like minded people who share their thoughts and interest. Mercury square Uranus can lead to spontaneous words of emotion, passion or anger.  Check yourself before blurting something out you might regret or not say under less stressful conditions.  It can be a fun and heart centered night too, as the Moon and Mercury align, drawing us close to the ones we care about. Today's color is White.

Wednesday: Mercury moves to Leo at 8:20 pm EDT. Mercury is lighthearted and creative in Leo for a few weeks while Venus is in airy, conversational Gemini. It's a good combination for meeting and being with new people, in groups or connecting one on one. Parties are favored. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 1:08 am EDT with an adventurous spirit. Moon opposite Venus makes us favor our freedom in relationships and like casual encounters or just fun rather than dealing with emotional talks or situations.  Put off that conversation about what's wrong and enjoy the day with someone instead. Sun lines up with Neptune in Cancer/Pisces, the water signs. Free spirited floating may suit us well. Sun squares Jupiter for the legal and family business that cannot wait. Sun and Jupiter favor positive outcomes even as you work through a challenging situation.  Today's color is Orange.

Full Moon is on Sunday, July 9th.

Robin's Zodiac Zone June 22nd to 28th, 2017

Thursday: Robin's Zodiac Yoga 5:30 pm with Happy Folk music on Congress Square Park Portland, Maine. It's free. Bring your mat! Astrology theme for Summer Solstice and Cancer New Moon!

This is the day prior to Cancer New Moon. It's time to shed an outdated belief or move on in your heart, and create space for love, romance, healing and reconnecting. That can include reunions or forgiveness and may also mean  making room for a  housemate, family member or other person who needs care and nurturing.  The Moon is in Gemini, aligned with Jupiter in Libra for fairness and positivity in relationships. It may also be fun and stimulating to be with people you didn't know well, or at all, before today. Socialize. Expect that others will need flexibility and freedom to express feelings and ideas.  Today's color is Light Blue.

Friday Cancer New Moon 10:31 pm EDT, meeting the Sun of course and approaching Mercury for a conjunction in the early hours of Saturday. Early in the day, things are changeable or could feel unstable as Uranus harmonizes with Gemini Moon. Gemini Moon opposes Saturn retro and that may feel like pressure to give your word or to sign a contract. Take your time if possible.  Endeavors are best started after New Moon, and through the days ahead.  2:45 pm to 6:07 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course. Late day Cancer Moon leads to heartfelt or other necessary conversations.  The protective and caring urge could come across as controlling or criticism. Do the best you can to be clear.  Today's color is White.

Saturday: Cancer Moon with a variety of planetary aspects. Venus aligns with Pluto. Understanding is a key word today. Can you understand something more clearly, ask for clarification,  or empathize with others' emotions so as not to judge harshly? How does understanding apply in your life right now? Do you need someone to show more understanding, and if so can you gently ask for that? Today's color is Blue.

Sunday: Cancer Moon aligns with Venus for harmony and love. Almost simultaneously, Mars and Jupiter form the sharp corners of a square. This sets up action around what's fair or requires more justice or balance. Family and partnership situations that are out of sync are most implied.  Consider what's fair in terms of sharing, judgment, and with resources or responsibilities. Cancer Moon void from 2:44 pm to 6:06pm EDT. Leo Moon follows and may bring more optimism and sense of fun for Sunday night or Monday.  Today's color is Gold.

Monday: The Leo Moon aligns with Jupiter for socializing, fun and acts of generosity and love.  Mars and Neptune align which may soften some edges and help us overlook what we cannot change. Creativity may peak. Be compassionate and notice who you enjoy being around. Positive people will lift you up, so find them. Today's color is Purple.

Tuesday: Leo Moon with varied aspects. Mercury is a major influence with a square to Jupiter and a trine to Neptune. Mercury meets Mars on Wednesday so that's approaching as well. Strong reason to form agreements, sign contracts, communicate pressing information or feelings, and issues of justice all come with these aspects.  There's no specific reason to be wary about agreements or legal matters right now. Saturn is retrograde, but that's true fairly often during the year. Evaluate timing. Does it feel right to move forward or resolve something now? Family and home related matters take precedence. Leo Moon void from 5:12 pm to 8:41 pm EDT. During those hours play it safe. Virgo Moon moves in. Tonight may be romantic or a good time for magical and imaginative work or play. Today's color is Indigo.

Wednesday: Virgo Moon. Mercury and Mars meet. Avoid defensive behavior or words. Listen and notice what you're protecting from feelings to people. Is that useful or could opening up and being more flexible ease a strain or emotional pain.  Can you avoid being passive aggressive and communicate about feelings without blaming? Problem solve under Virgo Moon. Today's color is Yellow.

Wind down with 5:30-6:45 Deep Stretch at Greener Postures in South Portland

Monday: Taurus Moon 1:04 am EDT. Stability and stubbornness as Venus squares Neptune and Mars squares Uranus. Open up to self expression, especially through music and all of the art forms.  Don't hold back your talents or your feelings (out of fear or judgment). There's some high strung, wound up energy in the air and with Mars in Cancer this may be an emotional release. Do calming things and help keeps others comfortable and safe, particularly those going through hard times.  Today's color is Pink.

Thursday: The Moon is nearly Full and in this month's Full Moon sign, Sagittarius. The Moon is in harmony with Jupiter in Libra and squares Neptune in Pisces.  The Moon and Jupiter alignment equals good fortune, and Libra, Sagittarius, Leo, and Gemini may experience luck through opportunities, travels, fulfilled wishes, and supportive friends.  Today's color is Turquoise.

Friday:Full Moon in Sagittarius is at 9:20 am EDT. This Full Moon of fire may fuel strong disagreements and also lead to closure in important life matters. The Moon meets Saturn retrograde and  you may close a chapter through a legal agreement or other significant decision. Venus and Mars align today, in Taurus and Cancer, for romance and reassurance even during this time of polar opposition. Recognize where it's important to be loyal. Know what's worth fighting for and what might be better to let go of. Today's color is White.

Saturday: From 2:20 am to 7:36 am EDT, the Moon is void of course. Capricorn Moon for the rest of the weekend. The Moon opposes Mars which may be difficult in matters of the heart or of controversy and debate.  The Moon aligns with Venus, helping to offset some of that opposition. Relationships and family matters take strong priority and may be quite stirred up today. The Full Moon zone continues, and you may notice this as certain situations peak. Today's color is Green.

Sunday: Capricorn Moon squares Jupiter, is in harmony with Neptune and meets Pluto. If something is wrong, face up to the reality and do something about it. Avoidance gets you nowhere. This is meant to be a productive day.  Today's color is Black.

Monday: Void Moon 2:45 to 7:45 pm. Use the hours before then to be productive and engaged in your priorities. The Moon squares Uranus at 2:45 pm, and annoyances or power struggles may flare up. Do routine things and exercise or relax during the void Moon hours.  Aquarius Moon sets in for a social night which is also a decent night for studies or work. Violet is today's color.

Tuesday: A busy day in the zodiac. The strong influences come from the Aquarius Moon, Mercury in Gemini and Jupiter in Libra. Note that these are the 3 air signs, relating to intelligence, communication, ideas, and discretion.  It's a day for good judgement, fair treatment, and conversation or meetings.  Agreements and partnerships form or take new shape.  Today's color is Blue.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon aligns with the Sun and Saturn. It's another day for agreements, co-creating, intellect and invention.  The Moon and Sun favor our social interactions too. Wear Silver.
