Robin's Zodiac Zone February 25th-March 3, 2018

Sunday: Cancer Moon. Venus square to Mars, Mercury meets Neptune, and the Sun aligns with Saturn. A wide array of influences. The common ground is in emotions and relationships, the ability to be compassionate while not losing good boundaries, and to see things as they are. Today's color is Blue.

Monday: Cancer Moon void of course 4:51 to 11:52 pm EST. Offer or receive hope and nurturing. Easy does it during the void hours. Leo Moon begins 11:52 pm EST. Full Moon warmup in progress. Purple is today's color.

Tuesday: Leo Moon and Venus in Pisces aligns with Pluto in Capricorn for practicality and sensitivity at once. Act from, and take care of, your heart. Today's color is Pink.

Wednesday: Leo Moon. Mercury squares Mars and forms a sextile with Pluto impacting communication. Conversations and negotiations may be challenging yet worthwhile. Try not to speak in anger. Let is dissipate first. Void Moon time 6:13 pm to 12:57 am EST. Today's color is Yellow.

Thursday: The resonance of a month of eclipse activity is clear as the Full Moon shines in Virgo at 7:51 pm EST. Venus and Jupiter in harmony is very helpful and may bring good fortune, kindness and harmony in relationships where feelings have been strong, imbalanced or uncertain. Neptune is across from the Full Moon and we must question anything that seems out of place. Listen to your intuition and do not trust blindly. Ask relevant questions and hold nothing back. Today's color is White.

Friday: Virgo Moon continues. Mercury in harmony with Jupiter adds the words to the feelings. Agreements may be made, temporary or long term. You can be flexible without being too loose in your expectations and terms. Nurture self and others. Compassion does not mean being a doormat. Look deeply into your heart and soul and do not be distracted by what you think you "should" do or feel. Release self judgment and instead take care of what needs your attention most, including what's going on inside. Healthy solutions are favored. Void Moon 6:50 pm EST. Today's color is Indigo.

Saturday: Libra Moon time starts at 3:20 am ending the void of course hours. Moon and Saturn align for justice, fair and equal thinking and outcomes. It's a day for objectivity. Today's color is Black.

Sunday: The Sun moves to Pisces at 12:18 pm EST. Aries Moon 7:05 am EST, square to Saturn at 7:15 pm. Fresh starts. Today's color is Orange.

Monday: Aries Moon trine to Mars. Moon square Pluto. Very much like Sunday, progress and beginnings are favored. Get past blocks and fears. Red is today's color.

Tuesday: Aries Moon void of course 6:11 am to 2:12 pm EST. Those hours are less reliable and we may be forgetful or prone to errors. Watch your steps in all ways. Taurus Moon sextile (harmonious angle) to the Pisces Sun at 6:16 pm EST for more harmony and stability. Enjoy a date or intimate conversation as well as cooking and the pleasures of the senses. Yellow is today's color.

Wednesday: Taurus Moon, Venus and Neptune meet in Pisces, and many other aspects play into mostly positive interactions, sensitivity to others, and romantic or sentimental feelings. A strong agreement or commitment can be made today as Mercury and Saturn align. Today's color is Green.

Thursday: Taurus Moon void of course 6:46 am to 7:07 pm EST. Moon aligns with Pluto and opposes Jupiter. Notice what creates strong feelings and responses. Agree only if you plan to follow through. Gemini Moon for evening socializing or studies. Wear Blue today.

Friday: Gemini Moon squares the Sun and 3 planets in Pisces. Ask questions. Be wary of anything or anyone that seems to talk a good talk. Use your intuition and don't go against that gut feeling. The Moon opposes Mars after midnight tonight into Saturday. Stay out of unnecessary confrontations. Today's color is Violet.

Saturday: Gemini Moon void of course 2:58 pm to 10:06 pm EST. Moon and Uranus align at 2:58 pm. Today could be exciting or unnerving depending on the nature of last minute events or surprises.  Cancer Moon 10:06 pm through most of Monday. Today's color is White.

Robin's Zodiac Zone February 11th-17th, 2018

Sunday: Capricorn Moon meets Saturn, the goat's ruling planet on a two plus year tour of Cap. We are still relatively new into this journey that began December 19th. Check your dental health and pay attention to nourishing and strengthening your bones. It's an organizational day. Wear Gray.

Monday: Capricorn Moon meets Pluto and harmonizes with Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Scorpio. An agreeable day and a time to focus on healing and abundance. Strategic thinking. Black is today's color.

Tuesday: Void Moon in Capricorn 12:43 to 10:11 am EST. Aquarius Moon time arrives then. Set your calendar and notifications to be on time and in the right place. Mercury square to Jupiter makes negotiations tough and tugs between creative and analytical approaches. Sun aligns with Uranus for unusual approaches and developments. Blue is today's color.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon aligns with Mars in Sagittarius. Dynamic, innovative action. For Valentine's Day, go out with best friends. Aquarius isn't our most romantic, sentimental Moon sign but it's great for socializing. Friday may be the best date night.  Review and reconsider in prep for New Moon/solar eclipse Thursday. Today's color is Light Blue.

Thursday: New Moon with a solar eclipse in Aquarius at 4:05 pm EST (beginning void of course time). Tune into vibrations of last August rippling or pouring in again. This New Moon is full of surprises and many other planetary aspects that mean action around a variety of things. Rapid changes are to be expected. Notice how one thing changing means something else will follow suit. People come into our lives now, with purpose. Relationship decisions may come to a peak as Venus and Saturn align. Think about committing to these actions for a very long time as they will be hard to reverse.  Pisces Moon begins 9:42 pm EST.  Today's color is White.

Friday: Chinese New Year, year of the loyal and reliable Dog. Moon meets Neptune and aligns with Venus. This is the romance time of the week. Though there's also a square to Mars and alignment with Saturn. Keep feelings in mind as you deal with business type interactions. Today's color is Pink.

Saturday: Pisces Moon on the increase swells emotions, love and creativity. Void Moon begins 5:14 pm until Saturday 7:05 am EST. Sun and Mercury meet for out of the blue ideas that friends may agree to. Spontaneous parties or gatherings are one effect.  Mercury moves to Pisces 11:28 pm EST. Today's color is Green.

Next Saturday, February 24th is Restorative Yoga with Reiki & Aromatherapy at Scarborough Yoga and we have a few spaces left in this workshop. Reserve in advance only as we cannot accommodate drop ins. Reiki by Adrienne Powers Johnson, Aromatherapy is individualized and optional. Treat yourself or have a restorative yoga date.

Robin's Zodiac Zone February 4th-February 10th, 2018

Post Full Moon eclipse, the Moon wanes toward solar eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15th. It's an astrologically eventful time. Welcome changes and notice how you're also protected and anchored with Aquarius fixed sign strength.


Sunday: Libra Moon. Feelings and considerations about how you want to love and what you hope to grow or increase. Are the roles you play balanced and fair, honoring who you are? Today's color is Lavender.

Monday: Libra Moon void from 1:46 to 10:56 pm EST. Vibes around relationships, forgiveness or letting go and also joining forces as the Moon and Venus align. Cardinal energies of Libra, Capricorn and Aries urge progress with what's most important to you today. Take the void hours slow. Pink is our color.

Tuesday: Scorpio Moon intensifies the experience. Expect to be working through agreements and terms. Relationship status changes may be news that goes either way today. Wear Maroon.

Wednesday: 4th quarter Moon in Scorpio, the Moon wanes with intensity. As I wrote during Full Moon, is there something you are holding fast to that honestly needs to be released? Jupiter offers help and healing, also in Scorpio at the same degree as the Moon. Today's color is Indigo.

Thursday: From 2:16 to 8:53 am EST the Moon is void of course before moving to Sagittarius. Moon squares Venus in Aquarius before changing signs and may set the tone for Wednesday late night and Thursday. Relationship stuck points need some attention. Untie the knots gently. Sag Moon challenges us to be honest and clear. Moods will be adventurous and not necessarily sympathetic. Today's color is Purple.

Friday: Sagittarius Moon meets Mars, squares Neptune, and is in harmony with Mercury in Aquarius. Forward thinking, innovative and in search of excitement to be expected. Yellow is today's color.

Saturday: Void Moon in Sag 11:38 am to 9:21 pm. Today could be many things, but reliable-not so much. Sun squares Jupiter and we may be philosophical and looking for hope and promise. Yet still, is change too difficult to comprehend or step into. Still in the letting go phase, if you're ready. Venus, planet of love, changes signs and moves to more tender, emotional Pisces. Wear Green.
