Robin's Zodiac Zone December 31st 2017-January 6th, 2018

Sunday: New Year's Eve color is Silver. The Moon is nearly Full, opposite Mercury for much discussion, problem solving and contemplation. Our minds may work overtime, or negotiating must be done. Avoid any flighty or frivolous attitudes. Certain things need to be settled and sorted during Full Moon. Void Moon begins at 6:36 pm EST. Keep your wits sharp tonight.

Monday: New Year's Day 2018. Cancer Moon begins at 3:10 am EST and Full Moon happens at 9:24 pm EST. Family, protective and maternal instincts, reasons to nurture and to take care of emotions. Compromises with others and reconciling differences in your own feelings and thoughts are favored and necessary as the Moon opposes both Saturn and Venus. White is your Full Moon color.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon and the Full Moon feelings and forecast linger. Moon opposes Pluto. Face fears and reinforce your self confidence.  Void Moon 5:46 pm EST. Today's color is Black.

Wednesday: Leo Moon time starts at 2:23 am EST. Venus and Neptune in harmony. Make way for more optimism and romance. Today's color is Gold.

Thursday: Leo Moon with various planetary aspects. Stubborn streaks yet positivity. Self expression, art, and social times favored.  Void Moon 6:10 pm EST. Orange is today's color.

Friday: Virgo Moon from 3:12 am EST for half the weekend. Moon aligns with Saturn and opposes Neptune. Act reliably and sensibly.  Issues are likely to involve the opposite behaviors. Today's color is Navy Blue.

Saturday: Virgo Moon void of course 9:51 pm EST. A very active day in the zodiac may lead to mixed feelings and influences.  Mars and Jupiter make a strong conjunction in Scorpio. Powerful actions will have lasting effects. Consider how you want to make an impact. Scorpio and Taurus may feel this very directly. Strong emotions may erupt or release and some will experience this as a healing and some as an ultimatum. Exercise your power responsibly without trying to control others.  Today's color is Indigo.

Essential Oils for the Lunar Cycle explores ways to use essential oils to enhance your daily experience and to support you through the changes and fluctuations we all experience each month and day.  Come to Willard Beach Studio for this  Friday afternoon class on January 12th 3:30-5 pm.

Robin's Zodiac Zone December 24th-30th, 2017

Transitions. Allow time to process and adjust as the Moon's light grows, culminating on New Years Day with Cancer Full Moon. Honor emotions as well as wisdom and pause as needed while Mercury is stationed direct at 13 degrees of Sagittarius. The symbolic meaning of this degree is "A Widow's Past Come to Light', bringing up what we thought was history, kept secret or no longer relevant. Will history haunt or heal in the weeks ahead?

 Simultaneously, Neptune and Mercury are square and what's real may be muddled by the spin others put on events as well as the stories of our own imagination.  Moments of truth are yet to arrive and honest breakthroughs and revelations could be both freeing and painful in the early weeks of 2018 as Mercury begins to retrace steps in Sagittarius through January 10th.

Waxing Moon is a time of progress, the Sun and Saturn shine in industrious Capricorn, and Full Moon will radiate from her emotional home sign, Cancer as we welcome 2018. What are we attempting to achieve or grow into, and how will it actually feel when completion comes? Re-set your intentions with all of this in mind.

I wish for you a peaceful heart.


Sunday: Pisces Moon with many helpful and healing aspects on Christmas Eve. Emotional life is the priority.  Also, Neptune brings motives or truth into question. Be intuitive in your relationships with others. Forgiveness, compassion and love can still involve healthy boundaries.  Void Moon begins 9:48 pm EST. Green is today's color.

Monday: Venus joins the Sun and Saturn in Capricorn, emphasizing the element of earth, the substance, grounding and sensibility of relationships in particular.  Venus in Capricorn favors nesting, growing one's bank account or becoming more practical with money, shared resources and management of day to day life. Find the harmony of engaging in what's real rather than dreaming of some ideal.  Moon to Aries at 7:27 pm EST which  means a long void Moon which could mean we space on certain things. Double check on what you need to do or bring and be cautious about putting things away for safe keeping where you'll have a hard time finding them in the future.  On this day, Venus meets Saturn for getting real in relationships.  Heart to hearts could draw up things from the past or uncomfortable topics. Can you stay with the process without shame or blame? Today's color is Red.

(convenient, those Christmas colors courtesy of Pisces and Aries Moon, the energies of green and red!)

Tuesday: Aries Moon trine Mercury newly direct, and square to the Capricorn Sun. Slow, thoughtful progress. Yellow is today's color.

Wednesday: Aries Moon void of course 3:37 pm EST after a square angle to Pluto and a meeting with Uranus. Feelings and secrets are provoked in bold fashion.  Keep your cool. Be ready to adapt to unforeseen situations or perhaps accept a spontaneous invitation.  Take no unnecessary risks though. Black is today's color.

Thursday: Taurus Moon begins 1:23 am EST. Mars in Scorpio aligns with Neptune and will later oppose the Moon, like bookends on this day. Mars provokes and instigates. Creative inspiration may come. Also though, what's hidden or superficial may be exposed. Loyalty may come into question. What are you true to? Let's not keep things covered up today. Call a spade a spade.  Yes, that could result in confrontation, but perhaps it's time.  Today's color is Blue.

Friday: Taurus Moon opposes Jupiter and aligns with Pluto and is then void of course from 9:01 am EST until Saturday at 3:31 am EST. Comfort and security cravings may lead us to hide where it feels safe.  Action around abundance and prosperity.  Avoid shopping today.  Wear Lavender.

Saturday: Gemini Moon square Neptune. Wacky, unpredictable, and potentially filled with misunderstanding or lack of clarity. Keep things honest and simple for best results.  Light Blue today.

New Year's Eve and January 1st color preview: Sunday's is Silver and Monday's is White for Cancer Full Moon happening at 9:24 pm EST on New Year's Day.

My yoga schedule is at Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation, will be offered by donation to Veterans and their partners on Sundays beginning January 7th at 3 pm-4pm at Portland Community Squash in Portland, Maine.  Please share this info with Veterans and their spouses.

Robin's Zodiac Zone December 17th to 23rd, 2017

Winter Solstice and Saturn completes the Sagittarius cycle and won't be back in the archer's sign until 2046-49.  Notice the parts of life, the serious decisions or milestones, of the last 2 1/2 years and you may get clarity on how Saturn's been in action in your own chart. Saturn in Capricorn may bring more structure, perhaps a re-structure that's been unfolding for you. Also, this is Saturn's home sign so all of that's Capricorn related with be emphasized and in very definitive ways.

In general, Saturn and Capricorn are about structures, maturity, and stepping up to the challenge. In the world, corporations, administrations and other large overseeing organizations will have to answer and maybe pay for their irresponsible behaviors or policies.  Saturn cracks the whip at negligence and lack of follow through. In personal lives, this is a solid time to get sober, take the reigns and be responsible for your own life, or if you're all good in that department, step into roles where you can lead others in very concrete ways. Adopt methods that get the job done, that increase abundance and not at the expense of social responsibility. I like Jupiter in Scorpio while Saturn is in Capricorn very much. Jupiter helps boost and reward our conscious efforts while Saturn tours Capricorn in 2018. They will be in an aspect called a sextile, which is harmonious, in mid April 2018.

The world seems due for a positive change. Saturn is a serious, intentional influence and I believe the Capricorn time will encourage accountability and a changing of the guard that will benefit many. Responsibility is a key word, as is leadership, structure and protection.

I hope to record a message for you soon. Stay on the lookout for a link.

I hope your Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Years include celebrations and love.


Sunday: Sagittarius Moon at it's quietest, preparing for New Moon overnight. Reunions, cheer, and for some, quiet contemplation. A new cycle is about to begin, for more than one reason. Today's color is White.

Monday: New Moon in a late degree of Sagittarius with both Venus and Saturn supporting and Uranus in harmony from Aries. Fire element at work, with lots of promise and positivity and surprise turns of events or changes of heart. New Moon 1:33 am EST. Void Moon only for minutes in the 8 am hour, 8:10 -8:33. Capricorn Moon begins at 8 :33 am, and Capricorn is part of the trend that continues this week. Today's color is Gold.

Tuesday: Ambition with integrity. Saturn moves to Capricorn. Wisdom, facing realities, and karma on this day and during the 2 1/2 years ahead. That's the trend. Read this week's intro above. Capricorn Moon supported and enhanced by Jupiter and Neptune in the best possible way. Today's color is Green.

Wednesday: Capricorn Moon. v/c 10:37AM-9:29PM. Moon moves to Aquarius then. Venus, planet of love trine Uranus for friendly, romantic and spontaneous occasions. Blue is today's color.

Thursday: Winter Solstice as the Sun shifts to Capricorn. Aquarius Moon for forward thinking, and the new moon wave is still clear and present. Today is serious and intentional as the Sun and Saturn meet. To what do you want to offer your effort and energy? How can you best contribute to this world and live your life? Turquoise Blue is today's color.

Friday: Aquarius Moon for gatherings, combining efforts and enjoyment of people and the season. If you're not in the socializing mood, write or draw your hopes and dreams like an architect draws up plans.  Mercury stations direct at 8:51 pm EST. Today's color is Silver.

Saturday: Void Moon 5:13 am to 9:42 am EST then Moon in Pisces. A mixed day where moods may shift and emotions come to the surface.  Creativity shines forth. Light Blue is our color.
