Interestingly, my husband and I picked up our new vehicle on Friday, the day I suggested you might purchase a vehicle or make some other upgrade! I noticed as I posted the forecast on facebook that day. It's cool when life syncs up with the forecast. Also, if you need a vehicle, bicycle, new laptop or appliance, purchase it soon since we'll be in a Mercury retrograde/eclipse mix in late May and early June. The eclipses may not make it easy to 'think straight' and may occupy us with other changes and adjustments as events accelerate and what's unexpected drops right in.
Mercury retrograde begins in Gemini (kind of an awful sign for Mercury retrograde to occur in!) on May 29th. We receive signs and effects more than a week in advance. Eclipse dates are May 26th and June 10th. More about those eclipses coming soon. I'll be offering the first Robin's Zodiac Yoga & Eclipse Readings gathering in a long, long time in early June. I'll have the date and place to you by next week.
Check in anytime on the facebook page, through Scarborough Yoga where I have a new yoga teacher training beginning in September, and at Breathing Room and Willard Beach Studio in South Portland, Maine where I offer my signature Chakra Flow class on Thursdays at 5:30 pm both virtual and in the studio. I hope to help you ride these 2021 waves through yoga and astrology, through written or spoken words.
peace and many blessings! Robin
Sunday: Capricorn Moon brings moments of opportunity for either reflection or construction. There are many harmonious aspects today, which often means things happen easily or without controlling influence. The Moon, for example, aligns with deeply internal Pluto and with imaginative, fluid Neptune. Both increase inner processes and soften the Capricorn structure and routine without dissolving what keeps us organized and on track. Void of course Moon is 10:38 am to 3:31 pm EST. Work on personal priorities whether it's the landscape or spring cleaning, or an intimate conversation with a sensible tone. Void Moon time may heighten creativity and offer some spaciousness. Aquarius Moon time starts at 3:31 pm. This is an inventive and visionary place for the Moon. Dream up something wondrous or genius. Venus aligns with Neptune for romance and sense of beauty. Today's color is Turquoise.
Monday: Aquarius Moon squares Uranus & the Sun and meets Saturn. The Sun and Saturn form a square of their own. These aspects speak to the need for restructuring, for scrapping what's not working, and for rebuilding and upgrading what's outdated. This could be a building or an agreement. Two forces that seem to oppose each other initially could lead to something bright and inspiring if you're willing to sit with the tension for a bit. Try not to reject ideas too quickly. Think differently. Commit when you find that mix of risk and reason. Neither need overpower the other. Uranus sparks alternative intelligence. Saturn leans into the traditional or sensible. Aquarius indicates collective benefit and/or effort. Mercury squares Jupiter as expansion plans, educational pursuits, and travel possibilities are considered. Again, this is a process. Generally, we may feel the need to grow and burst out of our cocoons. At 10:49 pm EST, Mercury moves into Gemini, so take your time as minds or information shifts this week. Today's color is Yellow.
Tuesday: Aquarius Moon meets Jupiter, squares Venus and is void of course from 8:05 pm to 10:09 pm EST. Overall this puts relationships in the forefront, whether it's one on one or you as part of a larger group. Aquarius is a sign of the big picture and everything that connects us. It is also a scientific and logical sign. Circulation of information or resources are highlighted. Get word where it needs to go. Share contacts and network. Open to a big opportunity and explore the possibility. Try not to get caught in stubborn, stuck ways of thinking or doing. Listen to one another. Wear Blue.
Wednesday: The Moon entered Pisces at 10:09 pm EST. This is an adaptable and creative place for the Moon. It is also quite emotional and feeling centered. Pisces Moon squared Mercury at 1:54 am and could create uncertainty. If you feel someone is insincere or untrustworthy, pause interactions until you feel more clear. There are many reasons for adjusting and adapting today, including the Moon aligned with Uranus in Taurus at 8:57 pm EST. This will, in some cases, bring surprises such as announcements or even a change in your own feelings about something. Aha moments come. Pisces Moon aligns with Mars in Cancer and though it is harmonious, it can bring up sensitivities and emotions like grief or resentment. Use your resources and breath to soothe, reach out, and avoid acting on emotion only. Today's color is Silver.
Thursday: Pisces Moon, creative, self aware, and potentially sweeter today, as the Sun, Neptune and Pluto form easy lunar aspects. Some will embrace their introversion. It's a fine day for study or daydreaming. Honor your emotions for what they are. Meditate or find quiet time. If the weather agrees with you, walk, garden or swim. Venus forms a trine with Pluto also. Pluto relates to the subconscious mind, insightfulness, dreaming, and relationship to the past. Tune into the back of your heart space for memories and feelings. Allow repressed feelings some kind of expression-perhaps through music, dancing or art. Love all the layers of yourself. Help others in their process, without grounding in their issues or energy. Today's color is Green. Chakra Flow through Breathing Room highlights Sacral and Heart Chakra flow today at 5:30-6:45 in person or on zoom.
Friday: Pisces Moon gives way to Aries lunar energy at 7:52 am EST. Void Moon from 3:36 am until then. Hopefully you had sweet sleep or dreams and maybe Venus contributes some inner peace. Aries Moon tends to 'get us going'. Act on goals and projects. Let inspiration lead you. Feel your inner spark or flame and stoke it for positivity and vital life force. If you're stuck or unclear, move your body and calm scattered thoughts. Find a good outlet for restlessness. That could mean taking a walk or run or laying down for a meditative nap. Aries Moon in harmony with Mercury in Gemini often means an abundance of thoughts and options. Deal with one thing at a time. Know when to say when or step back. Get things down on paper to see them from another perspective. Try not to let your mind overpower you or your words overpower anyone else. Today's color is Red.
Saturday: Aries Moon with a variety of aspects, continuing yesterday's influences and ideas. The Moon squares Mars and aligns with Saturn which could test our patience or increase emotional pressures. Venus squares Jupiter and one effect is the effort needed in relationships, both one on one or within larger groups such as colleagues or friends. Take good care of you, and let the rest unfold. Notice pushy people and agendas. Step back and be the observer as necessary. You may however need to step in when witnessing inappropriate use of power or control. Stay grounded in the right action for the situation. Venus moves to Gemini at 10:01 pm EST. It's a changeable place for the planet of love, and we may feel intrigued and interested in new relationships of all kinds. Today's color is Orange.
