Autumn in Robin's Zodiac Zone: October 20th-26th
Yoga schedule at www.rozoyo.com/yoga
Thursday: Gemini Moon void from 7:17 to 11:28 am EDT. Void of course Moon is a transition time, sometimes less grounded or reliable for intelligent decisions and other mental processes. People are more likely to be forgetful or late. Mercury opposite Uranus. Quick fixes and unexpected news this morning. Moon and Sun in harmony at 7:17 am, social and curious. An extrovert's morning, an introvert's afternoon. Family business becomes important for the rest of the week. Today's color is white.
Friday: Cancer Moon square Jupiter, trine Neptune, opposite Pluto and Mars in Capricorn. Mutual effort is required to settle problems or relieve anxiety. Themes of family and justice take priority. Productive solutions result from willingness to compromise or clear the air. Light blue is today's color.
Saturday: 4th quarter Moon in Cancer, Void Moon 3:14 to 3:44 pm EDT ( a quick one!). Leo Moon 3:44 pm through Monday evening. Sun to Scorpio at 7:46 pm EDT. Moon square Uranus, Mercury and the Sun. Settle disagreements and repair damages, at least temporarily. Work through disagreement or tough problems so you can enjoy fun instigated by Leo Moon. A good day to work on Halloween costumes or other whimsical, holiday, or celebratory planning. Yellow is today's color.
Sunday: Leo Moon. How much fun can you build into this day and weekend? Moon aligns with Venus and Jupiter for goodness. Socially oriented Saturday. Saturn in Sagittarius reminds us to balance freedom with keeping promises and being loyal. Orange is today's color.
Monday: Leo Moon void from 8:21 am to 11:16 pm EDT. Void Moon day is social, slightly lazy or unfocused. Mercury moves to Scorpio 4:46 pm EDT. When Mercury moves it can be best to stay put, be patient, relax, and know that the word you're hearing, or the plans, could change by tomorrow. Uranus aligns with the Moon to inspire or enliven, sometimes with a bit too much jolt. Avoid errors in judgment today and double check for both safety and certainty. Purple is today's color.
Tuesday: Virgo Moon, Venus in Sagittarius square to the Moon and Neptune. Venus seeks romantic adventures while in Sag. This could lead to small or bigger flirtations and/or deceitfulness. Travels and feelings of freedom appeal to this Venus cycle. While Virgo Moon pulls us to grounded work and tasks, Venus lures us to escape and play. How others deal with life and love may bother us (more than it should?) today. Do what you feel is right. Expect some criticism if it doesn't jive with someone else's point of view. Pink is today's color.
Wednesday: Virgo Moon void from 2:33 pm to 9:51 am on Thursday. Get work done earlier in the day if you can. Exercise off stress. A good workout after 2:33 pm is well timed! Venus aligns with Jupiter for travels and adventures with your lover or best friend. This can be a lucky, prosperous, good news kind of aspect too! Build in some celebration, relaxation, and joy! Green is today's color.
Aries: Respond to a job opportunity or manage conflicting interests. A career matter can’t wait. As questions about allies or competitors arise, act as the manager and the voice of authority. The sweet softness in your life comes from travels this fall. Book a getaway before the turkey roasts and the snow flies.
Taurus: Stress leads to growth when it’s just enough and managed well. Keep perspective on the temporary nature of current stress. The Sun and Mercury move to Scorpio, on Saturday and Monday, for honest communication and decisions with the one you love most. Get something off your chest and feel relief.
Gemini: Get finances in order this week. Create a plan or a budget you can live with. In dividing assets or resolving debt, the Sun and Mercury favor action beginning on Monday. The Sun also shines for health and healing processes for the next four weeks. Saturday leads you into an introspective period of regeneration and reflecting without any urgency or rush.
Cancer: Your horoscope week begins with Cancer Moon, a time of feeling deeply. Family, relationship, and career are on your mind. It may take some time before you’re clear and definitive about any sort of change. Realize what’s not in your control and relieve some pressure. The Sun and Mercury shift to Scorpio for lucky timing ahead.
Leo: Take a realistic look at your daily routine, and see if change would benefit you. Mars is practically forcing productivity. Work, exercise, and sleep optimally, according to your own body clock. Mercury and the Sun draw your energy inward to family and home. Tune in to both this weekend as Scorpio time begins.
Virgo: Time a statement, presentation or important conversation to sync with The Sun and Mercury’s moves on Saturday and Monday. From Monday on, Mercury helps you with wording and shines for best outcomes with contracts and test taking too. An autumn trip or a new vehicle gobbles up some savings, but makes you smile.
Libra: It’s been a month of standing your ground and speaking your truth. Late this week, some of you will schedule job interviews or tryouts of some kind. Take all you’ve learned and be confident and authentic in who you are. If it’s a match, you’ll be chosen or accept. Turn your focus to prosperity, money and things that create comfort for you.
Scorpio: Venus casts a magic spell so financial matters go smoothly. A little luxury expense or a significant raise or job upgrade could be the result. The Sun starts Scorpio time on Saturday and Mercury follows on Monday. Both instigate problem solving and thinking things out. As you prepare for Scorpio New Moon, outline the steps toward a personal goal.
Sagittarius: Big events take place behind the scenes, hidden from public knowledge. You may be central to the proceedings or still a bit unaware of what’s going on. Pay attention to subtle communication and clues. Venus inspires you to look and feel your best, so you’ll be ready to make your entrance or departure in style when the right time comes.
Capricorn: Venus favors inner peace for you during this fall season. There’s a definite social trend in progress that involves surrounding yourself with a different bunch of people and possibly a new love interest. Simultaneously, you need quiet time to be creative and take care of yourself. Listen to your heart.
Aquarius: You’re looking good to land the gig or starring role. Prepare now, and keep in mind that the very end of the month is most stellar for a bold move or making a finished product public. This weekend, soak in some sweet, romantic or purely fun vibes as the Moon dances in Leo and Venus brings around your most fun friends.
Pisces: Scorpio time is delicious for Pisces’ adventures. The Sun and Mercury suggest you satisfy a hunger for travel and different experiences within the next few weeks. Venus and Saturn position you for a career or leadership offer you can’t refuse. Have some fun before accepting a rewarding yet demanding role.

Try not to let the monsters get you down or trigger any public display of negativity. Planets in Libra favor all of your partnerships and mutual decisions. Get together with someone whose traits or strengths complement yours.
Taurus: Improving your routines and habits makes a huge difference. As a physical sign, you know that when your body feels good you function at a higher level. Even in your marriage or with your closest colleague, you’re a much better partner when you’re rested and balanced in what you consume.

Planetary positivity extends to child rearing and baby making if you’re ready. This season is about giving birth to new experiences and relationships of many kinds. Partner up and make things happen.
Cancer: Be sincere and convincing as you coax a close partner to see things your way. In family and other household relationships, the trend is toward growth and positive solutions. Rather than blame or passive discontent, open the conversation for a new agreement about money, chores, and mutual respect. An honest talk should go very well during the next seven days.
Leo: Mercury fires up your mind for speaking, writing, and publishing. Jupiter favors the benefits that come from such things, like money and growing audiences.

Learn quickly, and then pass it on.
Virgo: A job interview or related meeting is well timed for the 10th to 12th. Resume your search for higher paying or more suitable work. Be flexible as you consider a position out of your comfort zone. Jupiter gives you the power to take on bigger, more important and more intellectual projects this year. As Mercury moves to Libra, recognize the value of what you do.
Libra: The smart planets, Mercury and Jupiter, travel through your sign. Tap your knowledge base, use your wits, and be resourceful halfway between New and Full Moon. The Sun energizes you toward goals and for relationships. Progressive change comes if you can move past outdated or negative thinking. See the missing piece that’s right in plain sight.
Scorpio: Rediscover enthusiasm for an unfinished project. Venus stimulates your creative fire through mid month. Balance your internal process with interactions that bring ideas and plans to life. For example, seek out a valued opinion before pitching or delivering the final product. A road trip or time away from the usual yields insights you may not expect.
Sagittarius: Take a step toward one of your dreams. Mercury, Jupiter and the Sun gather to influence your friendships, romances and hopes. Infatuation is a symptom of this season, for you. Meanwhile, use wisdom and discretion where money is concerned. Seek financing or legal agreements, knowing there are still surprises in store. For now, curb any urge to overspend.
Capricorn: This is peak season to be noticed for the right reasons. Shine brightly in your field of expertise, or enthusiastically pursue a new goal. Mars, the planet of physical energy, pushes you a little bit harder or further, through November 9th. Initiate and keep things moving without overextending yourself. Enjoy a romantic or sentimental weekend as Venus and the Moon align.
Aquarius: Your mission is to become even more life smart. In the broad picture, there are life lessons to pursue should you choose to accept. Presently, deal with details with Mercury’s blessing until October 24th. Include applications, legal docs, and travel credentials on your to do list. This weekend, quiet time balances your body and mind.
Pisces: Answers and intuitions seem to come out of the clear blue. Hear beyond someone’s words and notice how you feel, trusting or unsure. Believe your body’s reactions as instinctual and informative. If you’re in the midst of a health concern, information you need comes forward. Resilience and regeneration are your two key words.

Friday: Libra Moon 3:52 am. New Moon in Libra 8:11 pm EDT. If it's very important to you and requires agreement from others, momentum or luck, perhaps wait until after New Moon to initiate. New Moon power is strongest from 8:11 pm eastern time zone through the next two weeks. The closer you time to New Moon, the better. However, the Moon does meet Jupiter at 12:54 pm EDT, making it a day for settling matters, calling a truce, developing healthier relationships, and receiving good news or profits. White is today's color.
Saturday: Libra Moon lines up with Saturn and squares Pluto. Show your serious side. Put intention and feeling behind your actions. Immerse in meaningful activities. A day of wisdom. A time to face problems, inner demons, and life decisions. Venus trine Neptune makes it a lovely time for dates and other romantic and creative pursuits. Light blue is today's color.
Sunday: Libra Moon void of course 11:43 to 3:43 pm EDT. New Moon power is still strong. Initiate when the Moon is not void of course for more reliable results. Avoid urgency and acting too quickly. Ask forgiveness when the Moon is void of course and the interaction is likely to go smoothly. Be very clear with your actions and intentions. Scorpio Moon 3:43 pm aligns with Mars in Capricorn for focus and getting work done. Indigo blue is today's color.
Monday: Scorpio Moon trine Neptune, conjunct Venus and sextile Pluto. It's an intense day with positive aspects. People may seem preoccupied. Take care of business. Check privacy settings. Focus on your top priorities. Soul searching, spirituality, and contemplating heavy or difficult topics is natural on days like this. Be objective and not obsessive. Passions are magnified. Maroon is today's color.
Tuesday: Scorpio Moon void 9:04 pm to Wednesday 4:26 am EDT. Do your best thinking and make decisions or purchases outside those hours. Always be careful and know your directions and destination on a void Moon night. Again, concentrate on strongest priorities. Sun sextile Saturn and Moon sextile Mercury makes it a good day for attention to detail, wise advice, fair business deals and legal agreements. Expect long term impact of actions taken now. Black is today's color.
Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon 4:26 am EDT. Moon in harmony with Jupiter, Venus sextile Pluto, Mars square Jupiter. A multifaceted, potentially complex day. Realizations and awakenings especially regarding relationship and love. Debates and activity around legal matters and personal situations that are imbalanced. With directed effort and healthy intention, you could make a big breakthrough with someone or something that has been resistant or blocked. However, the urge to run away from problems and responsibilities is strong too. Red is today's color.
Aries: There’s a spiritual or ethereal aspect to your experiences this week. Dreams leave strong impressions. Conditions are right for a metaphysical encounter or a sign of angelic presence watching over you. Release judgements in order to believe in what you cannot see. Love is in the air too, and you can take it to the next level with this weekend’s New Moon.
Taurus: Venus and Neptune contribute to romance and passion in new and seasoned relationships. A friend could become a lover as the planets align. Intentionally create some lightness and fun with your partner. New Moon leads to changes requiring new routines and organization. For example, some Taureans will adopt pets following New Moon.
Gemini: Libra New Moon is a beauty for Gemini love, luck and children. Jupiter blesses those areas of your life for an entire year. Set an intention for what you hope to grow into, for example to meet the love of your life or to birth a new child or creative project. Initiate your heart’s desire close to Friday night’s New Moon.
Cancer: Fresh starts and refreshed relationships are favored by this New Moon. This is most true in your home and with family even a distance away. This Moon begins a cycle of growth, rebuilding and the kind of prosperity that helps you purchase or upgrade property. Establish house rules if needed. Claim an area of creative or sacred space to call your own.
Leo: You’re likely to be on the road more for the next few weeks. Excursions have the blessing of Jupiter and energy of the Sun. Even if you travel for emotional or business like reasons, tune into the freedom of being away from routine. Forgiveness and understanding surrounds your family. Venus and Neptune conjure ancestral memory and legacies, piquing your awareness.
Virgo: Friday night is your annual New Moon of prosperity, and it’s especially powerful because of Jupiter’s proximity. As close to Friday night as possible, reach out for the earthly goods you want and need. More profitable work and the resources to make things happen are two examples of what’s in store. With Mercury direct in your sign, request what you hope to receive.
Libra: What a beauty of a New Moon. Fresh starts all the way around for you, Libra. Do what you want with none of those retrograde issues or fears. Mercury’s been providing some quiet inspirations, and now it’s time to act. Initiate a process, even the ones that take time. Refresh your look and your outlook with plenty of star power backing you up.
Scorpio: The New Moon’s effect is subtle for you. It could appear as a brighter perspective, more hopefulness, and a vision for yourself. Venus and Neptune provide a more direct experience of creativity or romance. Gratefulness, awe and bliss are manifestations of this planetary trine. Blessings extend to your kids. Believe in miracles and love.
Sagittarius: Friday’s friendly New Moon helps you start new relationships of any kind. A collaboration forms. Someone you meet or reconnect with moves into a more important and expanded role in your world. Jupiter aims to attract supportive and prominent people to you in the months ahead. Begin a romantic, profitable or otherwise mutually beneficial friendship now.
Capricorn: Jupiter propels you into a year of career growth, and this New Moon is fuel for a first or next step. Take advantage of offers and resources, get certified and update your resume. The weekend is productive while New Moon has maximum power. Simultaneously, Venus and Neptune create harmony and romance in your social life and give you a way with words.
Aquarius: Friday’s New Moon inspires philosophical thinking. Your perspective undergoes a shift or at least some reconsideration. Education, travels, and life experiences shape the course. You may step into roles of teacher, mentor, student or volunteer. Venus sweetens the career deal this month. Meet with someone influential who appreciates your work.
Pisces: Post eclipses and Mercury retrograde, life moves in a new and definitive direction. Stay in the flow and be confident. Venus and Neptune lead to dreams of distant places, and if you’re truly called, go. A well timed escape refreshes you, and you can make it a romantic trip for two if you choose. Whatever New Moon brings, trust your gut feelings as you move and decide.

It’s an ideal time to interview for or accept a position that makes you happier. If you’re going abroad or in school, plans and schedules smooth out too. The transformation and adaptation is becoming complete.
Aquarius: Renew your passport and check frequent flyer miles. Distant clients, conferences or audiences call you away.. In the name of art, business, education or service to others, be ready to go. The Sun and Mercury combine for answers to your questions about financing or health. Most of all, make sure information resonates with your sixth sense before you act.
Pisces: Looking ahead, one final eclipse will rock your world near birthday time. Just fyi. In the now, you and your partner share news or make an enlightened decision. You’re more clear about your heart’s desire. A declaration of love, loyalty or intention shouldn’t come as a surprise. This Jupiter year expands your intuition. Start to trust yourself even more.

Okay, it's eclipse time! Here goes!
Thursday the 15th: Pisces Moon nearly full. Moon and Neptune meet. Moon squares Saturn. Can you maintain focus on what's real and not run away or deny? That is today's challenge. Channel stress or emotion into music and art. Express yourself without insensitivity to others. Light Blue.
Friday the 16th: Lunar eclipse in Pisces 3:05 pm EDT. This is the 2nd to last of the Virgo/Pisces series. The next is in 6 months. Changes. Clear communication is needed but may be hard to facilitate. Transformations and growing pains. This change or this news may not be easy. Adaptations are required. Ease in. Do not be overpowered. Ground in routines. It's an emotional one for sure. Breathe well through the next few days as eclipse events continue to unfold. The upside to this; a creative peak. Silver is our color. (Void of course Moon starts at 3:05. Try not to plan too much or expect too much after that time)
Saturday the 17th: Moon to Aries 12:22 am EDT. Mars trine Uranus. Quite a wild day. Use caution. Enjoy adventures while keeping your head up and eyes open. Take no unnecessary risks, and be careful around fire and heat. Some will be energized. It's an extreme day on either end of the spectrum. Orange is our color.
Sunday the 18th: Aries Moon meets Uranus, Venus opposes Uranus and the Moon. Focus on relationships, fairness, and responsibilities to each other. Everything might seem like a bit too much right now. Avoid pointless arguments or topics you know will antagonize. Void Moon starts at 4:11 pm. Pink for harmony today.
Monday the 19th: Taurus Moon begins at 12:58 am EDT. Venus and Mars align which may help relationship strain. Fairness to each other is of the utmost importance, especially through changes and separations. Philosophies of relationship pop into our brains and conversations today. Is your role or your intention about partnership of any kind changing right now? Put intention behind your actions. Build things and follow the plan. Brown is today's color.
Tuesday the 20th: Taurus Moon in harmony with the Sun in Virgo, Mercury and Pluto. Mercury retro aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. Revisiting, sentiment, inner focus. Ideas. Deal with practical things and pay attention to "random" thoughts that may lead to problem solving or creating something. Re-create with more information or awareness. Blue is today's color. Void Moon 11:32 pm EDT.
Wednesday the 21st: Last full day of summer season. Gemini Moon 1:53 am EDT. Let go of outdated ways of thinking or old grudges you can be finished with. Move on in your mind even if you're waiting 'til Mercury's direct to depart or finalize something. Allow the mind to wander, creatively and in a relaxed not frantic way. Negotiations and meetings of a serious nature may be difficult yet necessary. Brainstorm today. Finalize in the future. Yellow is our color.
Like a book or film with a surprise ending, this week’s lunar eclipse delivers unanticipated twists. Final breakups, resignations and other once-and-for-all type news trigger emotional peaks. As Mercury retro opposes the Full Moon, make every effort to avoid misquoting or misinterpreting this week.
Aries: Temporary confusion or mental angst provokes anxiety, overexcitement or lack of sleep. Keep major decisions to a minimum since information can change in the blink of an eye while Mercury is retrograde. Take care of emotional drain with good boundaries and self care. Be tactful and wise as you prepare to break free.
Taurus: During this lunar eclipse of friendship, some move closer, others go. You may create distance or boundaries with one or two due to money issues, infidelity or another breach of trust. On the plus side, a bud, mentor or associate could give you a great lead or introduction that changes everything in the best possible way.
Gemini: Eclipses fuel changes around both your home and professional life. This extends to shifting your goals and rethinking priorities. As a boss or colleagues departs, you move around with different roles and responsibilities. Give a bit of time before deciding it your situations are suitable. Meanwhile, Venus instigates flirtations and fun.
Cancer: Career, education, travel and home are all under the influence of late summer eclipses. You’re once removed from many of the biggest changes the season brings. For example, Pisces or Virgo friends or significant others influence your present experience. Exciting or eventful travels or relocation are likely for you or for a family member as a storyline concludes.
Leo: You’re most likely to land the major contract or receive news of property or other legal settlement. Mercury direct, after the 22nd, is a better time to sign and finalize if you can buy yourself some time. Check your invoices and account statements for any kind of imbalance or privacy issue. Finally, prepare for some wild fun and, potentially, a spontaneous trip.
Virgo: Events circling around your lover, spouse or close associate shift the energy around you. You could be feeling moody, uncertain or excited, whether news is positive or negative, Exhaustion may accompany September’s duo of eclipses. Transitions push the extremes of breaking up or deepening commitment and other indelible, personal change.
Libra: Different things occupy your time. A heavier schedule means extra affort to stay healthy and balanced. Too little to do might make you depressed. The eclipses bring extremes to be reconciled. Jupiter just started a year long tour, hitting every degree of your sign, in the name of positive change. Lighten up, flirt and divert during a final Venus/Libra week.
Scorpio: A Pisces eclipse centers on love, creativity and kids. Stay focused and close to whom and what is dearest to your heart. Offspring, young or older, require extra support or attention through changes. Scorpio love lives turn in one direction or the other. Use your instincts more than control, and follow a natural course and creative flow this week.
Sagittarius: Friday’s eclipse signals transitions including moving, settling a property issue, and other potent changes in your household. Stay close to residence and connected to family matters this week. Mars and Uranus join forces in spontaneous, unexpected ways, so this week and next are anything but routine.
Capricorn: Shine brighter, step into an honorable position, and be recognized for your talents in the coming months. A whole year of Jupiter’s influence forwards your career and leads you to new roles. This eclipse leads you to new surroundings, city, wilderness or classroom. You’re going places you could not have considered last year.
Aquarius: This Full Moon eclipse initiates change in your earning power and related collaborations. Negotiate fair compensation. An associate’s status change impacts your working conditions, and Mercury retro leads to communication issues for another week. Attend to creative licensing, trademarks, and how your intellectual property is credited or shared.
Pisces: This Full Moon eclipse continues a two year series in Pisces and polar opposite, Virgo. It’s normal to feel a bit rattled or unsure about career, your significant relationship, and how to move forward. The universe is taking care of it though. There are fewer debatable decisions and more that become obvious when you least expect it. Take the path that’s clear.

Happy beginning of Autumn on Thursday the 22nd!
September 8th to 14th, 2016
Right now we're between two eclipses with Mercury retro in Virgo. It's an unusual combination, so do what you can to maintain or restore your balance...frequently!
Thursday the 8th: Purple is today's color. Sagittarius Moon meets Saturn, aligns with Venus in Libra and squares Neptune. People will appreciate being taken seriously. Try not to be dismissive. Pick and choose what you trust and believe. Team up with a partner for travels or other adventures.
Friday the 9th: Jupiter moves to Libra after a stay that began in August of 2015. Jupiter in Libra focus is harmony and justice now into autumn of 2017. Libra, consider this a year for opportunities and a growth spurt in knowledge and experience. Jupiter looks out for the best where partnerships are concerned and provides a healing force where there's relationship challenge. 2nd quarter Moon is in Sagittarius, and the Moon is void of course as of 8:51 pm EDT. The Moon and Mars energize, but may also increase bold or harsh attitudes and actions. Avoid tactless or temperamental people. Red is today's color.
Saturday the 10th: Moon to Capricorn at 8:55 am EDT. Saturn squares Neptune highlights realities and escapist tendencies. Break things down into small tasks or pieces you can understand. Try not to bail out on what's important or skip out on responsibilities. Black is today's color.
Sunday the 11th: Capricorn Moon meets Pluto. Green is today's color. Venus in Libra is square to both the Moon and Pluto in Capricorn. Justice is called for. Be fair as you divide responsibilities and better manage a workplace or household. Notice what's subconsciously communicated and other undercurrents that inform more than what you can see or hear.
Monday the 12th: Void of course Moon 6 am EDT to 5:28 pm. Mercury square Mars. Sun conjunct Mercury. This is a very uncertain day especially for having accurate information imparted, conversations that require clarity, purchases, building and constructing, or mediations. Today is about reconnecting and announcing overdue news. Gold is the color of the day.
Tuesday the 13th: Aquarius Moon, Sun square Mars in Virgo/Sagittarius. Use some restraint and a very thoughtful approach to decisions. Think forward while learning from the past. Commit to a course of action though you might revise the plan later since Mercury is retrograde. Be logical. Today's color is turquoise.
Wednesday the 14th: Void of course Moon 11:31 am to 10:23 pm EDT. Morning ( or before 11:31 am adjusted to your time zone) is best for focus and reliability. Great day for an afternoon off or for routine work. Also mix business and tasks with socializing and fun. Some things will happen or be initiated quickly. Think before you act or respond. Pisces Moon time starts at 10:23 pm EDT.Today's color is light green.
Horoscopes: We’re at the peak of Mercury retrograde in Virgo, a time for revision and reconnection with long lost friends.
Aries: The revolving world of Mercury retrograde brings a project or idea back to life. Take a different approach this time. Jupiter starts an optimistic relationship year. Your perspective on love and commitment is due to shift. Open your mind to the relevance or return of people and things from your past.
Taurus: Reconnect with friends, hobbies and projects you’re passionate to pursue. Get back to things you love during Mercury retrograde. Slow down and take breaks from the action. Jupiter prompts love to blossom and travels to be fun. You’ll thrive in a highly creative learning environment and will procrastinate or neglect boring tasks.
Gemini: Return to places you’ve called home, where you feel at ease. There’s a chance you’ll be helping out or visiting family. Jupiter’s Libra year is lucky. Begin by open your mind and letting go of negative perceptions and limitations. Love is not only possible, but may feel better than ever between now and next autumn.
Cancer: Home and family take higher priority for a full year.You’ll improve or move your living quarters or do more business from home. Welcome additions to the family including a baby or a relative who needs to stay with you for a while. Brainstorm ways to make your home bigger, safer, or more vibrant in the months ahead.
Leo: The Sun and Mercury lead to a bonus that’s been in the works for you. A gift or bump in salary are two possibilities. Look into trainings, conferences and fields to major in. You’re set to succeed as teacher, presenter or student in the months ahead. Leo’s audience or client base expands exponentially too. “Pass Go” and collect hundreds or the equivalent in value this week.
Virgo: The Sun and Mercury retrograde lead you to revisit what’s positive. The Sun always has an optimistic slant, and this time friends, plans and projects come back to brighten your world. Decide what’s worth reviving. Take a second look and see promise now in something you gave up or lost track of. Also, consider better job prospects from this week forward.
Libra: Jupiter moves to Libra on September 9th, giving you 13 months of extra luck and love. Pursue the areas you want to grow into while the big planet is on your side. Some Libras will fall in love, others will have their first baby. Some of you will excel in school or a new profession. The Sun and Mercury spark brilliant ideas and give new life to a dream this week.
Scorpio: You’re most likely in the zodiac to connect with an old friend or revive a romantic relationship. While Mercury is retro, you may just dive in though it’s best to make no promises. This lover or friends seems to read your mind, finish your sentences, and answer questions before you ask. Reach out to the person this reminds you most of.
Sagittarius: Reconsider that job offer you keep refusing or lead you never follow up on. Mercury and the Sun have one last blast in your career sector, and it’s time to move on or renegotiate. Look for ease and enthusiasm in a new situation. Ace the tryout for a lead role on stage or playing field as well.
Capricorn: Mercury retrograde and the Sun bring on a major life change, perhaps one that’s overdue. During this eclipse month, you’re gently pushed to finalize the details and make a move. Travel abroad or across country for a temporary or long term stay. Immerse fully in school or training. Your options increase now and for months ahead.
Aquarius: A project, property or legal agreement involving another person or group just might settle while Mercury is retrograde. Get clear on the terms and finances involved. The Sun and Mercury favor prosperous, promising outcomes, with room to adjust for growth later on. Your Jupiter in Libra year brings travels and opportunities to learn or teach in your field of expertise.
Pisces: September eclipses influence you strongly. Cruise through changes with a calm mind, and keep your plans private until it’s truly time to share. A sensible, yet heartfelt, discussion helps you clarity the direction of a personal or business relationship. Take your time since there’s a Pisces eclipse just ahead, and by the end of the month you’ll take the definitive step..
September 1st to 7th, 2016
September starts with a solar eclipse/New Moon in Virgo at 5:03 am EDT. The Sabian Symbol for this degree of Virgo is two faces peeking out of the shadows. The eclipse is solar, indicating beginnings, and this one is about seeing beyond any cloudiness or dark, to what's illuminated and bright. Prospects become more clear, though Mercury is retrograde until the 22nd so it may be wise to let decisions unfold rather than jump impulsively into the unknown. Neptune, Saturn and Mars challenge the Sun and Moon at eclipse time, and this could cloud judgment and appear as limitations or opponents. However, some of this will disappear. Choose your battles or choose not to fight the flow or the adversary, and wait situations out. If you must act quickly, expect terms and responsibilities to change in the fall. Sometimes things turn out even better than you hoped or planned!
Huge transitions mark September, and that's how we'll remember this month. Here's where we're at during this third phase of summer:
Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Virgo
Moon waxing toward Full/Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on September 16th
Mercury retrograde in Virgo
Venus in Libra, Mars & Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter finishing 13 months in Virgo on September 9th
Neptune in Pisces, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn (they stay in one sign for many years)
Move gracefully through all these shifts by developing patience and choosing calm responses. If you do, everything around you will respond. Environmental drama does not have to steal your happiness or peace.
Cheers & Happy Labor day weekend! Robin
Thursday: Solar Eclipse in Virgo, Sun square Saturn. Find flexible or experimental approaches. Try to avoid permanent agreements, promises or forcing decisions. Change happens naturally and inevitably. Make peace with that. The boys and men in our lives, fathers and grandfathers, Leos, Pisces and Virgo are most influenced by the eclipse. Sagittarius is challenged. Pisces must remain grounded and realistic. Capricorn discovers and explores. White is today's color.
Friday: Mercury conjunct Jupiter & the Moon conjunct both planets, in Virgo, Sun opposes Neptune. Be realistic and authentic. Make plans and agreements on flexible terms or temporary timelines. Important and overdue discussions. Interesting developments and eclipse type news. Void Moon 6:13 to 8:55 pm EDT then Moon in Libra. Lavender.
Saturday: Moon conjunct Venus in Libra. Partnership, seeking agreement and harmony. Mediate, negotiate, dance, make music, remain undecided if it feels right. Social day for parties and friendship. Pink.
Sunday: Libra Moon opposes Uranus, squares Pluto and void at 8:30 pm. Shop for simple things. Save receipts and avoid the major or electronic purchases. Socialize, mix pleasure and work. Collaborate. Avoid drama and impulsive action. Void of course Moon overnight. Be safe. White.
Monday: Void Moon until 8:38 am EDT. Scorpio Moon with no aspects. Retreat to your sanctuary or a beloved place. Focus your attention fully. Lose the tendency toward scattered mind and energy. Experience spirituality in any manner. Maroon.
Tuesday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Neptune, Pluto and the Sun. Silver linings. Seeing past shadows or romantic ideals. Attention to business. No BS allowed! Creative approaches. Indigo.
Wednesday: Sun trine Pluto, Venus sextile Saturn, Moon from Scorpio to Sagittarius, void of course 8:43 to 9:20 pm EDT. Balance freedom and responsibilities. Fulfill obligations. Look for harmonious agreements. Be practical and fair. Turquoise.
Aries: Between last September and now there’s been growing impetus to change day to day life, achieve optimum health, and remove some overriding stress. Thursday’s eclipse can force changes you put off or couldn’t quite manage. Address your biggest concerns in the most practical manner. This is a chance to re-imagine routine.
Taurus: Friends and acquaintances from the past pop back into view while Mercury is retrograde. Look for interesting reconnections while traveling, returning to school or attending a conference or event. You’re likely to see someone in an entirely different way. Be willing to change your opinion as a shadow or illusion is removed this week.
Gemini: The push pull of Mercury retrograde and a solar eclipse could drive you a little crazy as September begins. The living arrangement might not be what you expected or there’s a significant issue to be dealt with at home. The good news is Jupiter hangs out and supports best outcomes at your place and with cohabitation and family for one more week.
Cancer: Changes in your thinking impact business prospects and school plans. Mercury retrograde might have you in reverse, rethinking a previously done deal. Allow for alterations rather than stay fixed on what no longer makes sense. Change your major, literal or otherwise. Retract a statement if necessary. Make way for what’s happening now, as opportunity presents.
Leo: Mercury retro and the solar eclipse instigate changes and refocusing around how you earn and spend. You could find yourself with more money or a primo opportunity as Mercury meets with generous Jupiter. Saturn and Mars put pressure on business friendships while. Neptune also has a strange influence on shared money or resources. Trust your gut over other advice.
Virgo: Change happens fast. Solar eclipse is a blurry mix of wonderful and out of whack. It’s a time of re-imagining and learning as you go. A forceful opinion or chorus of advisors, especially family members, could exacerbate what’s already stressful. This adjustment requires inner wisdom, perspective and possibly a bit of distance from the ones you love.
Libra: A mental health day won’t set you back. Rejuvenate and restore your energy by stepping back a bit for perspective. Be more realistic about how much can be accomplished and how much to take on. Venus favors loosely scheduled time for art, music, journaling, and creative pursuits. Without making too drastic a change, head to the salon or spa for some pampering.
Scorpio: The Mercury retro and Virgo eclipse combine to reactivate your relationship with a friend, lover, or supportive colleague. Consider this a new beginning, free of preconceived ideas and judgments. You’ll interact differently this time. Keep money transactions separate from your friendship though. In general, money and work require a conservative approach right now.
Sagittarius: Jupiter exerts one final influence over your career or leadership role. Any resistance or reservations about change will be replaced by a need for action as the eclipse blows through. Mars and Saturn intensify your responses so be mindful and go easy. Compassion for others makes you a more effective leader or team player. Move gracefully through this shift.
Capricorn: The universe has been working to expand your mind, open you to new experiences, and change your view of the world. Thursday’s eclipse pushes you to the next level of understanding. A new program of study opens some Capricorn eyes, and others of you will be students of life. Challenge your previous beliefs and grow into confidence and self esteem.
Aquarius: Mercury retro and the eclipse events prompt you to review any partnership agreement, the terms of shared property and custody, accounts or loans. Mars and Saturn say it’s not the best time to mix friendship or romance with business. If you do. it’s likely you’ll rearrange and revise for better balance and the maximum return.
Pisces: You, my Pisces friend, are in the center of the whirlpool, the vortex of the eclipse season. Relationship status may change quickly or the two of you make a big decision, changing everything. Single Pisces feel the shift in professional or other one on one relationships. The roles you’re willing to assume are up for discussion and change this month.

Leo: You’re the zodiac’s pick for prosperity and abundance. Job opportunities and well paying projects come via Venus and Jupiter. A one off gig can lead to something more lucrative.

Virgo: A trio of planets join forces in Virgo. They aim to shine light into dark corners, awaken what’s been dormant, and beam generous amounts of love and open mindedness your way.

Libra: Invite someone of interest on a date or to collaborate. Venus enters Libra on Monday for successful pairings. Consider common vision, but also see differences as a strength.

Capricorn: The trio of planets in Virgo call you once more to distant places. A journey takes you somewhere beautiful, maybe home. The Jupiter/Venus connection is strong for happy landings wherever you roam late this summer. Mercury has another life changing plan in the works as well. It may be a month until you get the final word.
Aquarius: Rebirth, regeneration, and resources are themes as three planets exercise influence for your health, bank accounts, and settlements of any kind. If your life is in good shape, enjoy the bonus instigated by Venus and Jupiter. If you really need someone or something to come through for you, move that process along while the stars are strongly on your side.
Pisces: Uncommonly beautiful alignments impact your love and relationship life. Venus and Jupiter deliver on promises, deepen commitments, and encourage a healthy relationship between you and your most significant other. A hope becomes real.

Write the final page of a chapter eloquently.

This month’s been much about relationships, friends, and finances. One or more of those come through with the green light, answer yes, or elusive piece of information you need.
Pisces: Mercury and Jupiter have a rare meeting that influences relationship life. Revolving around commitment, these two lead you to declare love, renew vows, or make decisions as a duo. On a business level, you could enter the next, most important partnership of your life. Career aspects are strong. Powerful intuitions guide your steps within a few days of August 18th’s Full Moon.
Robin's Zodiac Zone is also found in the Portland Phoenix newspaper, available weekly on Wednesdays at local newsstands. And it's free!
August 11th to 17th, 2016
Saturn is direct in Sagittarius on the 13th, Saturday at 5:50 am EDT. With both Saturn and Mars in fire sign Sagittarius, we're prompted to move on what's pending. Tune into what you feel more decisive about, but do not be pushed by outside influences. Exert your own freedom and rights to make the best decisions for yourself, for your highest good.
Full Moon is August 18th, next Thursday. I'll be leading Full Moon Yoga at beautiful Sunflower Farm, home of the Nigerian dwarf goats. They produce cheese and goat milk sweets which are available for purchase ($7). You can pet and play with the goats after yoga. It's been a highlight of summer and I really hope you can come if you live locally, near Portland, Maine. The farm is about 30 minutes outside Portland in Cumberland Center, Maine. RoZoYo® yoga themes include ankles, stability, and community, friendship, mutual support and vision. Donate amount of your choice ($$) for yoga and the farm. This will be a fun, late summer practice as the Full Moon rises. 5:30 pm start.
This is a new Thursday-Wednesday forecast format I'm trying out. You'll get more for your sign plus the colors and important aspects with each Moon sign, as usual. Give me a few weeks to play with this and decide for sure.

Saturday: Pink is our color. Saturn Direct 5:50 am EDT. Sagittarius Moon void of course at 1:37 pm EDT. Do important business before the void time. Have adventures as the day goes on. Prioritize relationships.

Monday: Capricorn Moon. Productivity. Be realistic. Void of course 10:45 pm EDT to Tuesday 7:52 am EDT. Brown is today's color.

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon, Venus trine Pluto in Virgo/Capricorn. Flexible thinking, rapid developments. Stable changes. Blue is today's color.
Aries: Ingrained habits and thought patterns could hold you back from a new experience. Venus and Saturn create tension around the path you’re strongly considering. One big concern is how your relationships and familiar routines will change. The Sun and Uranus say it’s time to play ball, ready or not, by the middle of next week.
Taurus: Keeping personal relationships and business arrangements separate looks like a good plan. Venus and Neptune form a misleading opposition involving lovers or friends. Moon, Mars and Saturn point out problems regarding shared property, money and resources. With wise advice and information, act in your own best interests this week.
Gemini: Saturn’s return to forward motion has a positive influence on a relationship or reconstruction project. Improving your home environment, physical or emotional, and collaborative decision making proves easier from Saturday on. Act on creating a happy, healthy living arrangement, either on your own or with the one you love.
Cancer: It looks like you have news to share or an important conversation pending. You can wait a bit and experiment with changes before making your announcement to the world. However, if holding things in is affecting your appetite, sleep or ability to concentrate, it’s time to let the cat out of the bag. Make schedule changes before Mercury retrograde moves in late this month.
Leo: The Sun and Uranus light up a big, bright opportunity: a unique experience in life or in love. For sure, this is like nothing you’ve anticipated or engaged in so creatively. Follow up may require that you act spontaneously and shatter an old paradigm. Use your wits and resourcefulness with money matters, regardless of which route you take.
Virgo: The good sense of Mercury and balance of Venus are with you, bridging the gap between a goal and a promise you’re being held to. Your word may come into question or it’s you that’s been misled. Family and relationship dynamics are not to be underestimated. Your trend is toward a strong new beginning, and change is in the offing even if you or someone else resists.
Libra: Though decisions and actions can increase happiness, feel free to take a little bit more time. Rather than agonize over the pros and cons, envision the best case scenario and repeat an affirmation of success. Saturn and Mars will give you the final push when it’s time. There’s a year of tremendous growth directly ahead.
Scorpio: There’s a good chance you’re headed for a career, family or home related decision that requires clear thought. Saturn and Mars bring money into the forefront. Structure an agreement sensibly. Hear your own voice amidst all the advice and distraction around you. Above all, do not romanticize an alluring or unrealistic person whose actions could interfere with your goals.
Sagittarius: Planets set you up for a bold move. However, this is one of those times when you’ll have to negotiate the best situation. Venus and Mercury spotlight you as a great candidate for a job or role you want, though the terms require effort. From now through September, look for that ‘good enough’ decision making time.
Capricorn: With Saturn now direct, sharpen your focus and feel more clear. This weekend, clear any distractions and put together a road map for an upcoming adventure. Know that your best timing is still to come. Mars will energize your sign for 6 full weeks this fall, for the first time in two years. October is the definitive time for your next big move.
Aquarius: The Sun and Uranus have an exciting surprise planned, and it may seem out of the blue or unlikely at first. Connected to your marriage, significant other or business partner, you’ll be announcing or receiving interesting news. If you’re in a long term relationship, you’re in this together. In the midst of fun and spontaneity, keep money matters in check.
Pisces: For an entire year Jupiter’s been devoted to bringing you the best in partnerships of any kind. The 13th and final month of Jupiter’s beautiful influence on your collaborations and love life is in effect. Simultaneously, Mars and Saturn amp up career prospects. If you’re contemplating partnering for profit or personal happiness, this is some of the best timing ever.
