Robin's Zodiac Zone October 28th-November 3rd, 2018: Venus Back to Libra

Sunday: Gemini Moon void of course from 12:37 am to 7:27 pm EDT. Spontaneity. The best plan may be no plan at all. Changeable. Cancer Moon aligns with Uranus and Venus tonight. People may seem quite unpredictable or cranky. Cancer is the sign of our families. White is today's color.

Monday: Cancer Moon opposes Saturn in Capricorn. Give attention to whatever needs some structure and a sensible approach. Mercury meets Jupiter in Scorpio which for some means good news around finances, business plans or whatever part of your chart Jupiter is touring.  Open channels of communication. Wear Black.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon in harmony with Mercury and Jupiter for more of yesterday's news, including settling something with family members or in a business relationship. The Moon is void for a short 11 minutes from 10:31 to 10:42 pm EDT then in Leo. Leo Moon squares Uranus and Venus. This is likely to feel unstable and may rattle us to the bone. Stubbornness and unwillingness to compromise may come up as strong issues. Today's color is Purple.

Wednesday: Waning Moon in Leo,. Mercury enters Sagittarius and Venus tracks back into Libra during this retrograde period.  Before changing signs, Venus opposes Uranus and relationship status changes, strong disagreements or just plain not knowing where you stand are common effects. Scorpio and Taurus, relationships and partners or decisions you must make together could be quite unpredictable right now. Leo Moon can bring some playfulness and the spirit of dressing up into Halloween festivities. Today's color is Orange.

Thursday: Leo Moon opposite Mars and square to Jupiter. Things that need to be worked out, like problems and differences of opinions, will be obvious and strong. Wear Red.

Friday: Virgo Moon 1:48 am EDT may bring more willingness to help, resolve problems and find agreement. Mercury square to the Moon says explore more than one plan and try not to overthink. Let go of control where you know it's futile. Today's color is Brown.

Saturday: Virgo Moon opposite Neptune and in harmony with Pluto. Exercise both your body and mind. Channel energy or stress into imaginative writing or creating. Today's color is Navy Blue.

More about this Full Moon at

Sunday: Pisces Moon in harmony with Mercury, Pluto, and Jupiter. Enjoy the people you love and creative inspiration. It's an outdoor vibe too with earth and water playing prominent roles. Today's color is Green.

Monday: Full Moon is midday Wednesday in Taurus. Aries Moon gets the weekdays started at 2:58 am EDT through part of Wednesday morning. Full Moon bearing over us may feel like even more today due to a Saturn square. Pressure is a common effect. Mercury and Pluto align in two signs that harbor feelings and secrets or sometime avoid fessing up. Yet, the alignment may bring secrets or info out into the open. Today's color is Black.

Tuesday: Warmup to Full Moon. Completion and closure time is here. The Moon remains in Aries today, but events of the Full Moon have the longevity that Taurus bestows. The Sun opposes Uranus in Taurus. You'll notice some radical changes and announcements during this Full Moon. Mars and Pluto are active today so there's unrest.  The Sun moves to Scorpio at 7:22 am EDT, joining 3 planets in the sign of sexuality. Taurus is opposite Scorpio and is the sign of sensuality. Sexual, reproductive, and fidelity issues will be common during this Moon. Void Moon 2:18 pm to 10:33 am EDT on  Wednesday. Undeniable is a good word for this Full Moon. Notice how it's shaping events of today. Wear Orange.

Wednesday: Until 10:33 am EDT the Moon is void of course. With Full Moon and the deadlines and decisions this often brings, the early hours are a time to not be pressured. Wait until you feel clear or at least buy a bit of time until Taurus Moon 10:33 am EDT. The Full Moon is 12:45 pm EDT, opposite Venus as well as the Sun in Scorpio, and notably meeting Uranus for wild, less than predictable outcomes. Saturn and Venus are also major planetary players today and relate to relationship based and serious life decisions and events. Financial and organizational changes are also implied as these planets line up in Scorpio and Capricorn. This Full Moon is powerful, weighty, and meaningful in terms of long term impacts. Wear Gold.

Thursday: Taurus Moon, still offering Full Moon effects and news. Closure is common when the Moon is Full. One thing gives way for another or creates some space for what's to come. Neptune and Pluto in harmony with the Moon while Mars offers a stubborn square. Letting go or leaving a group may not be easy. Today's color is Light Blue.

Friday: The Sun meets Venus retrograde. Friends and lovers reconnect or approach each other, getting back in contact. We may dig into old clothing and give it new life. Repurpose something beautiful or interesting. Taurus Moon is opposite Jupiter and Mercury for powerful compromises and long lasting decisions. Void Moon in Taurus 10:49 am to 3:41 pm  EDT. Gemini Moon starts the weekend with a social, outgoing night. Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Gemini Moon squares Neptune. Reliability is questionable with these mutable signs. It won't be easy to secure a promise or make a fixed plan. Sun sextile Saturn is harmonious for business agreements and transactions. Today's color is Black.

Robin's Zodiac Zone October 14th-20th, 2018

Sunday: Void Moon until 3:17 pm EDT, in Sagittarius. It may be fun though not very grounded or reliable. The Moon moves to Capricorn and aligns with Uranus in Taurus. A project, plan or task may quickly need tending and problem solving late day or at night. The Moon and Saturn meet at 10:40 pm EDT. Today's color is Green.

Monday: Capricorn Moon and some easygoing aspect with Mercury, Venus and Neptune. A disagreement or conflict may dissolve or be resolved. It'll be easier to see the best in people and situations as Venus and Mercury meet in Scorpio. See what's beneath the surface and feel a strong connection.  Promises will be made. Remember Venus is retrograde, and maybe keep it light and flexible. Today's color is Blue.

Tuesday: The Moon is halfway to full, waxing in Capricorn, meeting Pluto, in harmony with Jupiter and square to the Sun. The square is the challenge and it's a crossroads for progressing and moving forward with projects such as building or agreements such as binding contracts. Do those things before 5:49 pm EDT when void time starts. Void Moon is like a waiting period or a floating feeling. If you initiate then, the chance of fruition diminishes. Today's color is Black.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon from 3:36 am. Two squares today mean stubbornness. It'll be a challenge to get people to yield and compromise. Expect to give forth effort with people and with rapid changes that require adjustments. Today's color is Turquoise.

Thursday: Aquarius Moon meets Mars activating around many things, especially projects and missions where people need to work together with common vision and goal. Mercury squares the Moon indicating some contrasting ideals and strong wills. A continuation of yesterday. Be open to others' ideas. Today's color is Red.

Friday: Void of course Moon 8:27 am to 4:20 pm EDT. This is a good personal or mental health day. If you must work, do the routine tasks rather than detail oriented or new business. Mercury is very active today for both collaborations that need some brainstorming or fresh ideas and also for creative and imaginative writing, performing or inventing. Pisces Moon follows and take us into the weekend. Today's color is Light Blue.

Saturday: Pisces Moon with harmonious aspects for serious, intentional actions (yes even with a Pisces Moon!), reconnecting in relationships and friendships, and metaphysical activities. Pull a few tarot cards and see what your intuitive self has to say. Today's color is Pink.

Saturday I'm at Riverbend Yoga in Yarmouth for a Restorative Yoga teacher training. There's still space and anyone interested in 6 hours of restorative yoga and learning is welcome to attend. to sign up by Thursday the 18th.

Tuesday night: Mercury moves to Scorpio

Here's the rest!

Sunday: Rest your mind on this day before New Moon. If you must do some planning, avoid going over and over the same information. Let your intuition speak.

Monday: New Moon arrives at the tail end of the night 11:47 pm EDT. Before then, take rest, pause or do what feels most intuitive and grounding. Decisions are best made or announced after today. Libra Moon in harmony with Mars for groups on a mission and collaborations with common vision. Today's color is White.

Tuesday: Libra Moon void of course 4:50 am all the way until Wednesday at 12:09 am EDT. This might be a reason to wait something out for one day or more. Sit with feelings of indecision or with new information you may act on soon. Mercury moves into Scorpio at 8:40 pm EDT. Today's color is Pink.

Wednesday: Scorpio Moon time begins at 12:09 am EDT. It's a very Scorpio sort of day with Mercury and Venus both meeting the Moon. Mercury opposes Uranus in Taurus. There's likely some surprising changes and developments today. All has long term impact as these signs are fixed. Take matters seriously and consider them from all angles before you make your move or give the final word. Today's color is Red.

Thursday: Scorpio Moon void of course 7:12 pm to Friday 5:53 am EDT. Before the void hours, long term decisions happen with blessings of Neptune in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Scorpio. You might feel like today is 'good timing'. Make sure you're in for the long haul, whatever you act on. Today's color is Indigo Blue.

Friday: Sagittarius Moon time starts 5:53 am EDT.  Sun square Pluto in cardinal signs. Mercury aligns with Saturn, also in a cardinal sign. Cardinals are the initiators and aim for progress. It looks like a day to work through agreements and try to get past blocks in the road. How gracefully can this be done? There may very well be some conflicts along the way. Today's color is Purple.

Saturday: Sagittarius Moon. Weekend adventures and connecting with new people or friends is favored as the Sun and Moon align in a friendly way. Void Moon is 8:58 pm to 3:17 pm EDT on Sunday, so it's another long one. Today's color is Light Blue.
