December 2nd-8th, 2018: Sagittarius New Moon & Mercury Retrograde Ends

Sunday: Venus moves back into Scorpio where the Venus retro began (it ended in Libra). Venus in Scorpio holds on tightly, is intense and sensual. Deep relationship feelings may come up for resolution or healing this week. The Moon is in Libra square to Pluto and the Sag Sun squares Mars in Pisces. Any of this could make one feel uneasy or have a bit of difficulty dealing with emotions. Today's color is Pink.

Monday: Libra Moon opposes retrograde Uranus at the tail end of Aries. Moon void from 1:16 to 2:55 pm ET and then in Scorpio immediately connecting with Venus. All of this is relationship oriented and there's much going on around love and partnerships of other kinds too. Relationships take our focus and priority. Today's color is Maroon.

Tuesday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Mars, Neptune and Saturn. Earth and water energies are prominent and remind us of our connection to the land and water, the basic resources the earth provides, and feelings of security and stability that are necessary to function well in the world. Ground in realities and present time today. Wear Indigo Blue.

Wednesday: Scorpio Moon void 4:53 to 9:49 pm ET when the Moon shifts to Sagittarius. New Moon is Friday at 2:20 am ET. This pre-New Moon time is for reflection. Today notice inner thoughts and dialogue. Keep your messages to yourself positive and encouraging. The Moon meets Mercury retrograde and reconnections may happen spontaneously or you may go over old business in search of something. The Sun squares Neptune and lack of realism could ensue. Check yourself if you're acting or deciding in an impractical way. Today's color is Yellow

Thursday: Mercury stations direct at 4:22 pm ET. Press pause and do not rush anything or put pressure on others. It's a day to take your time. Sagittarius Moon is influenced in interesting, contrasting ways. The luck of Jupiter is positive, Yet too much optimism, as in the kind that's not realistic, may be avoided in favor of wait and see. Moon squares will slow things down anyway, pointing out problems or potential pitfalls. Patience. Today's color is Purple.

Friday: New Moon in Sagittarius. Mars meets Neptune. The zodiac is highlighting the mutable signs indicating movement. Slow and steady with actions as Mercury is still in pause. Mars and Neptune are unlikely partners and they're rousing all sorts of emotions. This could be romantic or dramatic or both. Today's color is White.

Saturday: From 5 to 7:01 am ET the Moon is void of course then in Capricorn for the rest of the weekend. The Moon and Venus set up social events nicely. Organization is stronger now as is getting along well. New Moon offers energy for starting anything from a business to a new relationship. Mercury will be in pause for a bit and Venus retracing previous degrees too, so things that didn't manifest early this fall may be in a better position to happen now. Today's color is Green.

Robin's Zodiac Zone is a labor of love and any gratuity is appreciated, anytime you're feeling it.
Thank you! Robin

This Wednesday is Robin's Zodiac Yoga for the Lunar Cycle at The Sunshine Factory in the castle building at Brick Hill South Portland, Maine. We've had such an inspiring time each month here.
You may drop in! If it's your first time here, please come 10 minutes early. It's a Mercury retrograde themed workshop this week with postures, mudra and personal intentions. 6-7:30 pm $20

Sunday: Waning Moon  in Cancer once the Moon changes signs at 1:38 am ET after just a one hour void time. Mars in harmony with and Saturn opposite the Moon. Let hard feelings dissolve. Act on creative and constructive feelings and try to let certain expectations go in favor of 'seeing what happens'. Today's color is Light Blue.

Monday: The Sun & Jupiter meet in dynamic Sagittarius, sign of global travels and connections and higher education. Act on such matters while remembering to edit, double check and keep up with communications so you don't miss important info or details. Mercury retro square to Mars means we may lose track easily or get caught up in pointless dramas. Lean into lightness today. Cancer Moon. Wear Purple.

Tuesday: Void Moon 2:22 to 3:35 am ET makes way for Moon in Leo.  A rush of activity and fullness, mostly harmonious. Remember to stop and reflect frequently as you feel, act, and move. Sun and Jupiter both meet Mercury retrograde, and who or what are you reconnecting with? This may include distant people and places as well as opportunities you're entertaining. Leo Moon is optimistic even with the challenging or emotionally difficult stuff of life Mars aligns with Saturn for lessons, especially emotional ones involving taking the mature course of action. Today's color is Gold.

Wednesday: Zodiac Yoga this evening at Sunshine Factory in South Portland. We'll consider Mercury retrograde in our meditation and do a bit of reflection and energy shifting work. The Moon sails free through Leo, sign of the heart and spine, courage and playfulness. Today's color is Yellow.

Thursday: Void Moon 4:47 am to 6:08 am ET in Leo, then the Moon reflects Virgo's earthy, hands on qualities. Various aspects and a quarter Moon waning lead to handling many different things, personal and business. How can you act with grace, even under pressure? Changes of plan or protocol and emotions that need attention could feel somewhere between challenging and overwhelming. One matter at a time, matter of fact, step by step. Today's color is Brown.

Friday: Virgo Moon across from Neptune & aligned with Pluto in a sister earth sign leads to reality checks. Some softness around the edges is called for. The to do list and business like manner needs to be balanced with some love and romance and acknowledgement of tender feelings. Venus opposes Uranus retrograde, and relationship ups and downs is an understatement. Further developments in ongoing stories around who's with whom and can this relationship go on, be saved or is it time to let go? Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Mercury retro moves back into Scorpio, so you may feel a revisiting or find yourself rethinking things that percolated in earlier fall in the days ahead. This happens at 6:12 am ET. Do you wake up with something arising in your mind? The very early hours can be productive. Virgo Moon void 9:34 am ET to 9:49 am ET then into Libra, the sign of partnership and balance. Mercury and Jupiter align with the Moon. Saturn forms a square. The theme of Justice permeates many things that need resolution now. Saturn urges that we do the right, responsible and not necessarily easiest thing. Today's color is Black.

Robin's Zodiac Zone November 18th to 24th, 2018: Full Moon in Gemini

Thank you for being part of Yoga Nidra at Greener Postures and Restorative Yoga with Reiki at Scarborough Yoga this past weekend. By finding more peace and relief for yourself you create more peace and relief for the world. One healing, one yoga class, one breath at a time. Enjoy your holiday however you spend it.

Saturday, January 19th is a very special dual workshop day, a kind of retreat for growing and trusting your intuition. Learn skills and welcome an experience you can bring into your everyday life with Tarot Reading Part 1 & Yoga Nidra Journey with a Spirit Guide at Scarborough Yoga.
Priority sign up is now through December 21st, to attend both sessions 11:30-3:30 pm at an early bird price. Our studio is inside Oasis wellness center in Scarborough. There's a kitchen and purified water and a very comfortable space for this retreat like day.

Also, there are massage therapists on site if you'd like to book a massage that morning and make a whole day of it!

Robin's Zodiac Yoga for November is Wednesday the 28th 6-7:30 pm at The Sunshine Factory in South Portland. Join me in this colorful, magical space as we move through a sequence of postures and clear the mind during Mercury retrograde time. Drop ins welcome. $20
Sign up ahead of time here.

Sunday: From 3:04 to 10:56 am ET the Moon is void in Pisces. Take the morning easy and find some joy in creativity. Aries Moon square to Saturn at 11:30 pm ET. Some will feel driven and highly motivated, maybe even intense about accomplishing. Today's color is Orange.

Monday: Aries Moon aligns with Mercury retro in Sagittarius. Movement and meetings, travel and reconnection with people and places from the past. Mars and Jupiter form a square and increase the urge to get things moving, to escape the usual and do something or be somewhere different or exciting. You may notice and try to temper impatience today. Wear Red.

Tuesday: Aries Moon opposite Venus, now direct in Libra, means some will deal very directly and spontaneously with relationship matters. The aim is to create more harmony or equality, so try to do this calmly if it applies. Aries Moon void for about an hour 5:46 to 6:43 pm ET. Taurus Moon meets Uranus and there could be sudden expression of strong emotions, from temper to passion. Something may take you off guard tonight. Side effects can be lasting. Full Moon feeling sets in. Today's color is Green.

Wednesday: Taurus Moon for hands on work, creativity and cooking. The Moon aligns with Saturn in Capricorn, Mars and Neptune both in Pisces. Dive into tasks at work or at home. We're likely to want our own way and our own methods so it may be preferable to work alone. Avoid tendencies to try and control everything. Today's color is Blue.

Thursday: The Moon will be full in Gemini after midnight, on Friday east coast time, on Thursday evening Pacific time. First the Sun moves to Sagittarius at 4:01 am ET. Void Moon time begins at 4:59 am and ends at 11:10 pm so it's a void of course Thanksgiving, generally. We really have to watch our words and actions since Mercury is retrograde and the Moon Full so the nervous system is turned up high for many. Reactions and overreactions could easily occur. It is a good day for a relaxed and social atmosphere, staying away from charged topics and conversations, and noticing what you LIKE about people rather than what irritates you. Taurus Moon is great for being in the kitchen and creating a comfy and beautiful atmosphere at home. Also, beyond holiday events, stay grounded, do some grounded yoga postures like bridge and downward dog and take a long walk if the weather is right. Feel your connection to the place you land today.  I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, with overflowing abundance of both love and prosperity. Today's color is Yellow.

Friday: Gemini Full Moon 12:39 am ET. Avoid impulse shopping or any decision that's under-thought. Oppositions and squares fill the zodiac, and to sail through this Moon free of regret, do less. Shop less. If the words are not kind or results from irritation, say or write less. White is today's color.
(If you need some Restorative Yoga, I'll be guiding the monthly class 6-7:15 pm at Greener Postures South Portland. It's quiet, still, comfortable yoga that allows you some inner space and rest. Even with little movement, the body can feel much better after! Special rates for students, seniors and first time at GP studios.)

Saturday: Gemini Moon aligns with Venus. That makes for a really good party or get together. Enjoy being with others and see the good in them. Neptune direct at 8:08 pm in Pisces. Follow your dreams.
I had an intuitive message last Saturday which was definitely for sharing: What is your dream for yourself? What is your dream for the World? When your mind is not taken with other things, spend some time picturing or sensing this. Neptune offers qualities of color, fantasy and imagination. This could be a romantic date night or day. Today's color is Pink.

Robin's Zodiac Zone November 11th-17th, 2018: Mercury Retrograde, Venus Direct

Mars to Pisces on Thursday, and on Friday Venus stations direct just hours before Mercury retrograde officially begins in the evening.

Restorative Yoga with Aromatherapy option and Reiki is Saturday, with good reason and intention, as we move into holiday weeks. Pisces is a healing, tender Moon sign and that is the aim of this session. With Addie Powers Johnson offering reiki and you choose the aromatherapy blend for you. I'll guide your yoga postures, quiet and supported for rest.
This is likely to be full by early in the week. Advance signs ups only. Registration closes Friday morning if we're not sold out.

Sunday: Capricorn Moon meets Saturn, and the Sun aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. All in all this is a serious, intentional, perhaps productive or driven influence. Face a fear and move forward. Today's color is Black.

Monday: Capricorn Moon meets Pluto for a slow unfolding or revisit to yesterday's vibes. The Moon is in harmony with the Sun in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Capricorn Moon is not the one most attuned to deep emotions, and in fact may easily detach and focus on tasks and organization, yet feelings will be impossible to ignore today. Some may include romantic love and sentimentality. Today's color is Blue.

Tuesday: Capricorn Moon void just for half an hour before moving to Aquarius at 10:45 am EST. Venus and Uranus square the Moon today and interpersonal conflict is one effect. Can you work through it fairly without drama? Aquarius Moon aligns with Jupiter newly in Sagittarius at 1:05 pm EST for broad perspective and an adventurous or inventive inspiration to follow. Today's color is Turquoise.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon aligns with Mercury soon to be retrograde. Note the importance of communications, messages, meetings, and group dynamics. What's going on now may be revisited a few times before the end of the year. This is meant to be a productive time in the lunar cycle. Yet we are also on the brink of Mercury retrograde. Everything is an experiment. That sort of approach may be most suitable for the next month. Today's color is Silver.

Thursday: The Moon is halfway to Full (November 23rd, next Friday). By the way that Gemini Full Moon has some very challenging aspects, and Mercury will be retrograde. An intention to keep things simple and calm around the Thanksgiving holiday could put you in a better frame of mind. Restore and replenish in these days ahead and do as much as you can in advance if you're hosting dinner or an event. Today Mars  moves to Pisces at 5:21 pm EST. It's a passive sign for the warrior planet. Mars is out of element completely. Perhaps channel fire energy into creation, writing and actively processing emotions so you don't feel bottled up and eventually burst or crash. Mars is in Pisces until December 31st after a very long tour of Aquarius. Mars aligns with Uranus before leaving Aquarius. This is active and unsettling, rebellious and out of the ordinary. Could be exciting, could shift something way out of the expected range. Be very cautious around explosive people and situations. The Moon has a mix of aspects. Moon shift to Pisces at 11:41 pm EST after just 43 minutes void of course. This part of the week is highlighted by more changes tomorrow. Today's color is Light Blue.

Friday: Pisces Moon meets Mars at 12:02 am EST. Notice how you feel late night or early morning. Does a feeling spontaneously come up for acknowledgment or care? Venus direct at 5:51 am and Mercury retro begins 8:33 pm EST. Many shifts late this week stir up feelings, situations, relationships, and plans. Today's color is Green.

Saturday: Pisces Moon meets Neptune, aligns well with Pluto and is square to Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius. The square may feel like something or someone holding you from a change you want to make or something you'd like to do now or soon. Mercury retro is a good reason to pause though. Is it true that there's no rush? That the opportunity will still be there in a few weeks? Slowing ourselves down is a good plan during this retrograde. Plans may change for this particular day or weekend. It's not only best but most likely necessary to be flexible and go with the flow. Today's color is Lavender.

Robin's Zodiac Zone November 4th-10th, 2018: Scorpio New Moon

This week is astrologically eventful as Jupiter moves into home sign Sagittarius for a one year tour, Uranus backs into Aries (retrograde) and we have New Moon in Scorpio. Also this is the week prior to Mercury's retrograde in Sagittarius (and later Scorpio). For the most part, this is a time of movement and action. Jupiter in Sagittarius aims to inspire and expand.

Sunday: Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00. The clocks turn back one hour. Void of course Moon for a couple of overnight hours and the Moon will be in Libra at 4:01 am, square to Saturn and in harmony with Mercury. Find plans and terms fair to all. Today's color is Blue.

Monday: Libra Moon square Pluto in Capricorn and in harmony with Mars in Aquarius. It's a day to work together. Social justice issues are one thing to gather around. Some will face fears related to partnership, in business or love. Today's color is Lavender.

Tuesday: Libra Moon void 3:19 am to 8:02 am EST, then in Scorpio where the New Moon arrives tomorrow. Uranus moves back into Aries. Sun trine Neptune for creativity, imagination and romance. Venus is in conjunction with the Moon for similar effect. This is an interesting and perhaps variable day with other aspects as well. New Moon is tomorrow so take today to reflect and consider the upcoming cycle and what your intentions are. Today's color is Pink.

Wednesday: New Moon in Scorpio for long lasting decisions and influence. Act on what you're truly committed to. Pluto and Neptune are in harmony with the Moon. We may need to be gentle or request privacy or independent time. This is a very introspective, emotion oriented New Moon. White is today's color.

Thursday: Jupiter and the Moon both move into Sagittarius, the mutable fire sign. Change is in the air as we just had New Moon and Jupiter begins a year in a new sign, his home sign. From 5:42 am to 1:59 pm EST the Moon is in Scorpio waiting to changes signs. This can be a relaxing or an uncertain time where nothing is quite clear. Sometimes that enables us to take an action without overthinking. If you do that, double check later, edit or make sure you follow up. Sagittarius Moon inspires us to move and act, travel and speak our personal truths. Wear Purple today.

Friday: Sagittarius Moon meets Mercury. New ideas and methods are a topic. Notice as the next 'big' thing is presented or implemented. Venus retro and Mars are in harmony. Enthusiasm may bubble up more readily and forgiveness feels right and possible. Reconciliation can be attempted and revisited for longevity when Venus is direct again (November 16th and beyond). Try something out or on for size without long term expectations. Experiment, explore.  Today's color is Red.

Saturday: Sagittarius Moon until 10:55 pm EST with only a very short time void of course tonight. Friendly reconnections or new friendships are highlighted. Social, enthusiastic, energetic vibe. Today's color is Green. Moon to Capricorn 10:55 pm EST.

November 17th 2-4 pm Restorative Yoga with Reiki healing and Aromatherapy at Scarborough Yoga. Addie Powers Johnson offers Reiki healing while you rest in supported yoga postures. Sign up ahead only at at the workshops link.
