Robin's Zodiac Zone September 29th-October 5th, 2019: Libra New Moon

Libra New Moon is actually on Saturday the 28th, and we ride the current it creates all week.

Sunday: In Libra fashion, today has two sides. There's a lovely playfulness and bright outlook including romantic feelings and love as Moon meets Venus and both have been in harmony with Jupiter in passionate, inspiring Sagittarius. On the other side, Moon and Pluto square and anxieties or negative thinking or attitudes form the other side to the day. Some will experience just one while others get a bit of both. Encourage wherever for whomever you can, including your self, as needed and with honesty. Try to avoid overthinking. Enjoy beautiful places and moments. Void Moon starts 10:06 pm EDT. Today's color is Pink.

Monday: Scorpio Moon time starts at 5:42 am EDT and opposes Uranus in Taurus today. Scorpio likes predictability generally, and today is likely to be the opposite. In some cases that will mean wild ideas get airtime and are put into action. All in all, things are likely to shift and change whether we want that or not. Being too fixed on one way or outcome will only prove disappointing. Find ways to yield and notice where change becomes beneficial after all. Also, use your powers of observation and focus. Today's color is Maroon.

Tuesday: Scorpio Moon in harmony with Saturn for sharp senses and Neptune for sensual and healing experiences. Be focused and productive or immersed in passionate love. We'll tend to go all the way with things, maybe hitting the extremes. Venus in Libra is square to Pluto in Capricorn, reminiscent of Sunday's Moon/Pluto square. The Moon and Pluto are in harmony. Reflecting, pondering and facing relationship and partnership decisions is one of the main themes. Be honest with yourself about what you need and want from relationship. It's time to face a reality about the part you play and the direction you and another will take. Today's color is Black.

Wednesday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Mars, co ruler of this sign. This sets up the day at 5:46 am and it's full of energy and raw emotion or drives that need an outlet. The Moon moves void of course at that time so avoid overreaction this morning. Aim to be constructive as there will be tendencies toward destructive instead. How can you channel those strong feelings and your will positively? Action is a key word for today. The Moon is void until 7:44 am EDT then moves to brighter, fiery Sagittarius. Fire element is predominant today and impulses, powerful urges and the need for change and movement come with this Sag Moon. Wear Purple.

Thursday: Sagittarius Moon. Pluto stations direct. Mercury moves to Scorpio at 4:14 am EDT. Adapt and change in the name of progress. Investigate and gather information. It's a good day for studies or diving into inspired work or projects. For some, Pluto direct may calm or settle inner disruption and conflict. Let fire take the place of fear. The fire could be bravery, love, or motivation. Moon and Jupiter say this could be your lucky day. A change in perspective may be beneficial. Today's color is Red.

Friday: Mercury in Scorpio may inspire you to pursue information, such as solving a mystery, digging into genealogy or settling a medical or legal matter during the next few weeks. Keep that in mind and ask questions and consult with reliable sources. Mars moves to Libra at 12:22 am EDT. This week is marked by planetary changes so there are lots of energetic shifts. Mars in Libra may encourage those legal settlements in a more assertive or aggressive way. It is the planet of 'war' in the sign of peace. We'll see how that plays out. Void Moon 3:34 am to 1:43 pm EDT, followed by Capricorn Moon. Capricorn Moon aligns with Mercury for late day business and constructive discussions. An agreement may be completed before sundown. Work or significant personal business may extend later than usual on this Friday. But the evening is also good for simple social plans. Today's color is Blue.

Saturday: Capricorn Moon for a productive weekend. Getting things done at home or working weekend hours makes sense. We're between a New and Full Moon and there's an upswing of energy. Plus the Moon squares the Sun encouraging us to make decisions, even the harder ones. Capricorn favors organizing and making things work better. Develop a new system or form a strong commitment at the Moon and Saturn meet. Uranus forces some situations so movement must occur. Notice where things can't really stay the same Neptune provides a bit of lightness and romance for evening plans. Green is today's color.

Robin's Zodiac Zone September 22nd-28th, 2019

Sunday: The Moon moves to Cancer at 12:50 am EDT, an emotional and sensitive but comfortable sign for the Moon. The Moon squares Venus and if relationship dissatisfaction is present, it may become a topic of discussion or disagreement. Mercury and Saturn are also square and communication may be challenging or news may not be what you'd hoped for. There's likely to be be serious contemplation or discussions today. It's the final day of calendar summer season. Wear Blue.

Monday: The Sun moves to Libra, and Autumn begins this morning at 3:50 am EDT! This first day of fall features Cancer Moon, void in the evening, leaving plenty of daytime hours for priorities to be decided and acted on. We'll lean toward emotional or heartfelt decisions. Connect with natural surroundings and people related to or loved by you, and connect in intentional, present moment ways. Void Moon begins at 6:05 pm to 5:19 am EDT. Today's color is Purple.

Tuesday: Leo Moon begins 5:19 am EDT and is in harmony with Libra Sun for good feelings between us and possibly a willingness to make peace. Mercury aligns with Jupiter for mutually beneficial agreements, travel plans and other business. Uranus is square to the Moon, and honestly, who knows the outcome! Sometimes it's fantastic inspiration and other times it's unusual behavior nd craziness. Gold is today's color.

Wednesday: Leo Moon gives a boost of energy or optimism or both. It's also a time of cutting cords and clearing clutter. Make space for creativity and fun. The Moon syncs with Mercury and Venus in Libra and Jupiter in Sagittarius for happy times, positive outlooks and outcomes and overall generosity. Venus is also square to Saturn and some will make necessary and long term decisions about relationships. Void Moon arrives quickly at 12:14 pm EDT. Do detailed or important things before then while judgment is strongest. Today's color is Orange.

Thursday: Void Moon ends 6:37 am EDT and then shifts to Virgo. Waning Moon in Virgo with a number of planetary aspects leads to a mixed day. Some business may be accomplished while other things feel delayed or unclear. Internal processes are favored as the Moon aligns with Pluto. One downfall today is the inability to come to the senses and face reality-only for some people though. Notice what really must be faced and dealt with. Do what you can and leave some things for another day when there's less resistance or second guessing. Or for Saturday's New Moon which can help propel things forward. Cleaning house and cleaning up schedules and routines is favored. Today's color is Black.

Friday: Virgo Moon on this balsamic Moon that precedes New Moon on Saturday. The Moon connects through favorable and challenging aspects with planets in Capricorn, Pisces, Sagittarius, and finally at 11:58 pm EDT with Mars directly in Virgo. All of this is activating and hitting pressure points. One theme is whether sensible or rash actions will be taken. Moon and Mars at minimum take us out of our comfort zones and decisions will need to be made, in some case because staying the same is not an option. Make healthy choices as Virgo is so deeply connected to health and the body and Mars can irritate or agitate symptoms or old wounds. Today's color is Brown.

Saturday: New Moon in Libra. Venus sextile Jupiter. All of this is positive for fresh starts as well as interactions and collaborations or adventures with others. New Moon is at 2:28 pm EDT. Open to sharing, partnering, joining, getting to know, and recalibrating if relationships have become unbalanced. Make your intentions or announcements public from 2:28 pm on. Enjoy the company of others. Today's color is White.

Saturday is Intro to Yoga Nidra 11:30-5:30 at Scarborough Yoga. Credits will be offered for continuing education for yoga teachers. Part 2, if you choose to be certified to lead Yoga Nidra, is next week on October 5th, same place and time. Register at before Friday.

Shamanic Yoga and Spirit Guide Journey is October 19th 4-5:30 pm at TULA in South Portland, Sign up while space allows!

Robin's Zodiac Zone September 15th-21st, 2019

This is our last full week of summer. The Sun moves to Libra on the 23rd and planets have already settled in to the sign of mediation, balance and peace. Always the opposites are at play, so we consider and experience the contrast between storms, wars, and aggression versus and in conjunction with harmony, cooperation and calm.

Sunday: Void Moon right after Full Moon opposes the Sun at 12:33 am EDT. It's a challenging one emotionally as the Moon meets Neptune for disillusionment or too much illusion versus reality and sensibility.  The Long void Moon extends to 6:32 pm EDT. Mercury and Venus are newly in Libra. This is a challenging and potentially unfavorable day to make decisions that have impact. Partnership, collaboration and merging together are in the evening forecast. Decisions that come easily after the Moon moves to Aries are best. Today's color is Orange.

Monday: Aries Moon, the action starter and sign of new things. Moon and Jupiter align for optimism and growth. Expansion and initiating are themes and ideas to go with. Void Moon begins again at 12:02 pm EDT for the remainder of the day and night. Keep those hours chill and simple. Accomplish what's rote and easy. Today's color is Red.

Tuesday:Taurus Moon starts 6:31 am EDT. Moon void until them means the overnight could lead to things you wish you hadn't done or said. Keep texts and virtual communication to a minimum and avoid regrets. Taurus Moon is more down to earth and signifies long term decisions. As the Moon opposes Uranus you may find grace under pressure and/or the need to respond to quickly unfolding or sudden events. We'll appreciate those who are good in a crisis or any unforeseen changes. Today's color is Green.

Wednesday: Saturn in Capricorn stations direct. This could help with systems and organizational changes especially if they've gotten a rocky start in the past few months. Taurus Moon aligns with Saturn, Pluto, Neptune and Mars for constructive approaches and long term results. Today's color is Blue.

Thursday: Taurus Moon void 9:57 am to 4:58 pm EDT. The void hours are best kept simple. We could lose some amount of good judgment and discretion. Yet those hours can be freeing for pure enjoyment. Make big agreements or announcements before 9:57 am or after 5. (EDT or adjust to your time zone). Gemini Moon for fun and socializing tonight. Wear Yellow.

Friday: Gemini Moon aligns with Venus and Mercury in Libra for social engagements and connecting with each other even on a simple, friendly, even superficial level. It's a getting to know vibe so parties or meetings, conferences and collaborative work are all favored. Try to avoid comparing and judging yourself against others and just enjoy the company. Interesting studies are also favored. Today's color is Light Blue.

Saturday: There's a big set of square angles in the mutable signs and that means struggling through changes or disputing what needs to happen. Internal and external disagreements may be common and need to be worked through. Be very careful with criticism, gossip and insensitivity which could increase as a result of frustration. Hurt feelings may lead to rifts that are heard to heal. On the plus side, you could put effort into something you want to grow and into studies, mediating disagreements and anything that requires a new perspective or approach. Today's key word is effort. Travel plans may be disrupted or delayed. Put on your calm face as the Gemini Moon opposes Jupiter and is square to planets in Virgo while Jupiter in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. Wear White.

Join me for Shamanic Yoga as we deconstruct some familiar postures to find organic, fluid movement, the way nature moves and breathes. We'll then ease into a journey where you can invite an experience of spirit guides, animal messengers, and recovering wholeness and wisdom. This happens at TULA in South Portland on Saturday, October 19th, a magical time as we approach Halloween and the sign Scorpio. Sign up now as we expect to fill the room and already have a list of rsvps. workshops link.

Yoga Nidra trainings September 28th and October 5th at Scarborough Yoga. This is for yoga teachers and anyone else interested in the yoga nidra practice. Come to just Part 1 for general interest or to both for certification to lead yoga nidra.

I hope you're enjoying autumn! Happy Harvest Moon September 14th! Robin

Robin's Zodiac Zone September 8th to 14th 2019: Pisces Full Moon

All week we move toward Pisces Full Moon, the Harvest Moon at 12:33 am EDT on Saturday. Harvest the fruits of your summer intentions! Clear the path for autumn newness. Autumn begins on September 23rd, so however the weather feels, we are technically in summer season until the Sun moves into Libra. Happy Virgo birthdays! Virgo is summer's third sign. Robin

Sunday: Capricorn Moon. This is a dense sign ruled by heavy hitting Saturn. Responsibilities or shelved emotions deserve attention especially if they are weighing heavily or gnawing at the back of your mind. Today, remember that stress is the root or contributor to many maladies small and extensive. Take care of root causes and feel like you're doing something about whatever problem or project is present. Self care and compassion needs to be a priority too. Balance what's external with internal wisdom and sensibility. 8 notable aspects include Sun square Jupiter and Mercury trine to Pluto, increasing our thoughts and mental activity. Todays color is Black.

Monday: Moon void in Capricorn from 4:30 am to 5:24 pm EDT. If you're looking for answers or final solutions, patience is necessary. All may not be ready to come together quite yet. We are working toward Full Moon closure this week. Take on the simple tasks that contribute to progress and completion. Mars trine to Saturn activate us around serious matters, maybe ones that are longstanding or showing themselves again. Moon trine Venus helps us get along and encourages emotional harmony. Aquarius Moon is objective and full of perspective tonight. Wear Turquoise.

Tuesday: Sun opposite Neptune in mutable signs contributes to creativity and also to whimsy and unreliability. You may hear statements that sound way out there, notice actions that defy reality, and people thinking impractically. Aquarius Moon squares Uranus adding to the unpredictability and increasing stubborn attitudes. At best, today is full of wild ideas and out of the blue events (which can be beneficial). Today's color is Blue.

Wednesday: Void Moon 1:22 am EDT and all day long into the night. During these days before Full Moon we may feel pressure building and the long void Moons could make it difficult to get all the people and pieces in place for what you need done. Take care of things you can do and can to some degree control. Let the others go for today. Moon and Jupiter align for a change of scenery and shift in attitude or philosophy. Today's color is Violet.

Thursday: Pisces Moon starts at 5:52 am EDT, leading to Full Moon overnight Friday into Saturday at 12:33 am EDT. This is a potent day, filled with news and in some cases due dates and decisions. Tomorrow, expect more of the same. Moon and Uranus continue surprising news and developments as well as creative genius or being in the right place at the right time (if you're lucky!). Mars squares Jupiter which could lead to confusion about how to act, what to do, or whether your actions align with your values. Today's color is Green.

Friday: Venus and Mercury meet on this busy, active Full Moon type day. There are many lunar aspects. We may need to be versatile and adaptable, willing to shift and change anything from assignments to an about face revision on something due now. Yet, Mercury and Venus in Virgo help us get along, collaborate, connect with each other, make dates or make beautiful things. Sun aligns with Pluto may help us face our feelings and be resilient and progressive. Today's color is White.

Saturday: Full Moon in Pisces 12:33 am EDT. Mercury and Venus both move to Libra and the sky is filled with oppositions. Changes within changes are in the forecast today. Due to unforeseen events or other people's needs, changes of plans, priorities, emotions, and more come with this Full Moon. This Moon is also fertile and abundant and our sensitivities may arise powerfully. That includes intuition. Let it be your guide. Today's color is Gold.
