May 30th to June 5th, 2016

Monday: Pisces to Aries Moon, Mercury trine Pluto

It's the kind of day where things sneak up on you. Pisces Moon has one aspect, with Mars retrograde, at 7:10 pm and is then void of course until 9:09 pm.  It could be a relaxing day. What we need to prepare for or attend to is feelings that simmer below the surface.  Mars in Scorpio is like bubbling lava and can overflow with any amount of stimulation.  Mercury and Pluto align for secret or quiet conversations with undercurrent of a different, yet also powerful, quality. Something is quietly decided without common knowledge.  Agreements may be made. There's a taste of conspiracy in the air.  There's a willingness to discuss what was considered taboo. It all makes for an interesting day where intuition plays an important role.  Aries Moon starts at 9:09 pm setting up a fast paced business week after Memorial Day in the USA. Today's color is orange.

 

Tuesday: Aries Moon

Aries Moon is in harmony with Venus and the Sun in Gemini and Saturn retro in Sagittarius.  It's a day of action on what's been pending, meetings and conversations, networking and decisions.  If you like plenty of excitement and interaction, this is your kind of day. Accept an invitation. Enjoy a fun date. Wear red.

 

Wednesday: Void of course Moon

At 11:42 am EDT, the Moon is void of course in Aries until 10:46 pm. A tricky meeting between Moon and Uranus happens at 11:42 and Pluto is square the Aries Moon.  Emotional or reactive patterns are easily triggered.  Practice self control and awareness and take your time responding. It's a better day for fun than it is for serious business or decisions.  At 10:46 pm the Moon shifts to more traditional and grounded Taurus. The Sun is squaring Neptune in mutable signs Gemini and Pisces. This challenges us not to run away, to speak the truth and tune into anything deceptive.  Check into anything that seems too good to be true.  Be as realistic as possible.  Today's color is yellow.

 

Thursday: Taurus Moon

We're approaching New Moon, so these are days of reconsiderations and review.  Taurus Moon aligns with Neptune and Jupiter for healing, creating, and doing something worthwhile.  It's a gardener's day. Even if you don't work outside, consider and tend to what you're hoping will grow and bloom.  Enjoy the pleasures of nature and all your senses. Build and design.  Today's color is green.

 

Friday: Sun & Venus oppose Saturn

Oppositions dominate the zodiac. It's a day of polarities and attempts to find balance and agreement.  In relationships, sort things out and see if the common ground is solid.  Saturn is retrograde so there may be follow up in the future.  The real stuff of life comes up strong and heavy.  There's no skirting an issue or pretending something doesn't matter.  Venus also squares Neptune and it's good to be aware of potential deception or outright lies that are destroying a relationship.  This can also be a challenge to be more romantic, caring, imaginative versus always serious and stern.  Question and be curious.  Don't be misled.  It's a complex set of aspects including Taurus Moon, a sign that likes security and comfort. Yet today, Venus in Gemini stirs things up to set relationships right, in the end. Wear pink.

 

Saturday: New Moon

Gemini New Moon is at 11:00 pm EDT. Mercury is direct. It's go time. Granted, Mars and Saturn will stall certain things for a longer while. Saturn opposes the Moon today while Venus meets the Moon. Yesterday's relationship "business" takes a new turn. Venus squares Jupiter in Virgo. Sort things out or go your separate ways. Where is the space for growth, joy and abundance? Follow that route. Create happiness for yourself. Gemini energy is light and joyful, though there are pulls in other directions too. What blocks your own joy and light? Is it something you can free yourself from? That's this New Moon's message, and it's one of movement. Banish stagnant energy. Make some sort of move, no matter how small, toward more happiness.  Think things out intelligently. There's room to blend emotion and logic. Today's color is yellow.

 

Sunday: Gemini Moon

The Gemini Moon is new and opens the path for change and growth during this lunar cycle.  Many things happening now will be revisited and drawn to conclusion during Full Moon, the 2nd in a row in Sagittarius.  Sagittarius and Gemini are mutable signs, with likenesses and strong differences too. If you're in conflict or opposition right now, it may be extreme and confusing.  Do things to alleviate anxiety and stress. It's a sociable day, but if that's too overwhelming this weekend, do your own thing. Breathe well, as Gemini rules the lungs and breathing.  The nervous system may need some soothing today.  Talk with a trusted friend if you need to process what's going on in your life.  Listen well while the Moon is in the communication sign.  Today's color is blue.

May 23rd to 29th, 2016

Monday: Sagittarius Moon

 

The Full Moon feeling extends into Monday as the Sag Moon forms a trine to Uranus in Aries. Trines facilitate, and with this fire angle sudden action is likely. This may come in the form of natural occurrences or human-made events. This trine can inspire wild ideas that just might work, or instigate trouble that happens fast. Keep your eyes on the road and feet firmly planted.  Stay flexible on this day post Mercury retrograde. Changes of schedule are probable as the Moon is void of course from 11:37 am EDT until Tuesday at 1:34 am.  Quick thinking required. Respond the best you can if put on the spot for solving, saving, or stepping in as a replacement.  If it's a day off, enjoy a field trip, dive into a good book and break from the usual. Have a new experience under Sagittarius Moon.  Today's color is red.

 

Tuesday: Capricorn Moon, Venus in Gemini

 

At 5:45 am EDT, Venus moves to Gemini. It's time to get out of the house to enjoy events and people. Find pleasure in short trips or daily commutes. Update or upgrade your vehicle, be it two wheels or four.  Take scenic routes for a change.  Meet new friends and consider being part of a group or class. Gemini is a sign of learning too, so a course in an area of strong interest could also provide friendship and social occasions (something that doesn't feel like school preferably).  This is a flirtatious few weeks suited to dating.  Today, Venus also opposes Mars retrograde in Sagittarius. Be careful of flare ups in relationships. Avoid blaming, instigating, or pointless debates. Travel plans hit snags on days like this.  Aside from the Venus action that dominates the day, we have Capricorn Moon for the areas under construction, the systems that need to be revised or put in place, and what's often known as Mercury retrograde "cleanup". Deal with the mess and the unfinished.  Today's color is blue.

 

Wednesday: Capricorn Moon

 

Capricorn Moon is busy and influenced by several planets including Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto. It's a multi-task day. Areas highlighted include health, service for the greater good, and internal struggles or just plain introspection. Review where you've been, how you got to this point, and determine a next step.  Power plays are likely. If you suspect that's happening, you might do something to head it off. Check a couple of marks on the to-do list and feel progress. As the Moon wanes, there's a trimming of excess. Maybe today you let something go for now or for good because it's too much work, a drain, or not really a priority. Make outdoor projects happen on this earth sign day. Void of course Moon starts at 9:11 pm EDT. Wear the color green.

 

Thursday: Jupiter square Saturn retrograde, Aquarius Moon

 

As Jupiter squares Saturn we reach a definitive turning point. The effects are broad and long term rather than being about the events of today. We could definitely see (or have just seen) global news about areas where progress is difficult though the world is being challenged to evolve and progress. Saturn is retrograde so stuck points may be obvious,  politically, internationally, in relationship to global business, and maybe in our personal lives. It kind of depends how much your chart reflects and aligns with Jupiter and Saturn's Virgo and Sagittarius placements right now.  All in all, on this mutable square, act in good faith, use your instincts to determine if other parties are doing the same.  I don't love this day for acting on something important since these two planets in this arrangement are reputed for bad timing. However, the effect is not just about today and the square has been influencing us for days to weeks and will continue to do so. Saturn is retrograde until August 13th, just for reference.  Aquarius Moon replaces the void Moon time at 10:27 am EDT. Aquarius has vision and engineering/design skills.  Venus, Mars and the Sun harmonize with the Moon so many things go well and happen easily.  That seems like a contradiction to the Jupiter/Saturn square. Use your instincts and question motives. If your sense is that the answer is yes (or no), say so and act accordingly.  Today's color is light blue.

 

Friday: Mars retrograde in Scorpio, Aquarius Moon

 

The Moon is in Aquarius. Take care of technical work and things that need to be restored or repaired. The Moon squares Mercury challenging us to make longer term plans and come up with solutions. Share possible ideas and keep an open mind. Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius aligns with Aquarius Moon. This could lead to rethinking and revising in order to integrate something unique or new with what's already been established. Brainstorm even if you're not ready for final decisions. Mars moves back into Scorpio and we'll retrace some feelings that are unresolved and involve anger, passion, bravery and willingness to take action.  It may be challenging not to move back into jealousy, vengefulness or resentment.  A retrograde can be considered a new chance for healing, though it may not be easy. Mars is retro in Scorpio until June 29th. Fixed sign action today leads to permanence and long term effects. Minds may be hard to change and arguments can result. Different visions of the same thing may be obvious. Be as clear as possible as you work through such things.  Today's color is turquoise, a communication color. 

 

Saturday: Aquarius to Pisces Moon

 

The Aquarius Moon aligns with Uranus for a wild and wacky day. Maybe it'll be fun,  maybe it's a good idea to be a bit cautious. Uranus is in fiery Aries and Aquarius is an air sign, feeding fire. Precautions with fire are always a good idea. Spontaneous fun and friendly gatherings are favored. At 4:19 pm EDT the Moon is void of course briefly until 5:06 pm and then in water sign Pisces. The lure of lake, ocean, boating, paddling, and other water activities remains for the remainder of the weekend and Monday.  Moon squares Mars and stubborn opinions are expressed. Don't let old grudges spoil a good time.  Today's color is green.

 

Sunday: Pisces Moon

 

The Moon makes a wide variety of aspects today. Pisces Moon is generally a creative and emotionally sensitive time. Moods may change through out the day and evening.  Moon opposite Jupiter in Virgo could lead to excess. Think moderation.  Moon square Saturn retrograde is an unstable influence. Things may seem to be "all over the place" today. At least with so much mutable sign action, the negative can be transformed with effort and willingness.  Plant, garden, play or hang out by the water.  Soothing influences and environments rule. Today's color is blue.

May 16th to 22rd, 2016

Final week of Mercury retrograde & a Sagittarius Full Moon ahead

Monday: Virgo to Libra Moon

The Virgo Moon aligns with the Sun, increasing productivity and confidence. It's a void Moon from 5:20 am so keep tasks routine and paced.  People should be in sociable moods and willing to help. Ask a favor if needed, but make sure it's not forgotten in the void of course transition. Lateness could be an issue today. Libra Moon at 1:33 pm aligns with Mars retro in Sagittarius tonight. Retrograde reconnections and old stuff comes up and may be resolved. Be very fair and try to be less judgmental and consider the complete picture.  Today's color is lavender.

 

Tuesday: Libra Moon

Libra Moon, sign of justice, connects with Saturn retrograde. Some of the serious business of life, law, and responsibility come up. Intensity heightens. Judgment calls will be made. It's still a better time for temporary fixes and trial periods, though some long term decisions are likely. Leave room for adjustments as you see how things evolve. Today's color is black.

 

Wednesday: Libra Moon

Libra Moon is void of course at 11:23 am EDT until 2:29 am on Thursday. Adjust for your time zone. Do business and have meetings before the void Moon starts in order to increase chances of follow through. Many things are forgotten during the Libra v.o.c. Moon. Uranus and Pluto influence the Libra Moon, and this isn't always easy. Spontaneous trouble shooting may be needed. Inner thoughts and feelings preoccupy. Try not to let them get you down and avoid negative judgments of your self as well as others. It's free-ing to let go of old patterns, if possible. Today's color is indigo blue.

 

Thursday: Scorpio Moon

The Moon moves to Scorpio at 2:29 am EDT.  Plant, fish, create abundance. Follow your passions. Tame obsessive thoughts and tendencies. Get fixed on something good. Live and let live. Privacy is important today. Check privacy settings. Be conservative with money, but do something with it. Invest wisely with money and time.  Carve out some time for yourself. Full Moon warms up for Saturday. Maroon is today's color.

 

Friday: Scorpio Moon, Sun moves to Gemini

It's Gemini time as of 10:36 am EDT. This is the cusp. The Moon opposes Mercury retrograde and something is back up for discussion or trying again.  Converse about it, and save the final word for Monday or later.  Interesting and insightful thoughts enter for contemplation and action to be taken soon. Mercury retro ends on Sunday and it'll be a better time for deciding. Sun in Gemini makes way for venus in a few days. Taurus, enjoy your Venus days with who and what you love and cherish and reach out for what you need while the planet of harmony favors you most. Yellow is today's color.

 

Saturday: Sagittarius Full Moon

I see this as a Full Moon of first attempts that may take another month or so. Two Full Moons in Sagittarius, in a row, with 4 retrograde planets this first time around, indicates exploration of a good plan including education, a move, or something else that takes you places. However, Mars retro is next to this Full Moon and Mercury is across from it.  Let things evolve. Give freedom and have some for yourself. Avoid pressure. That may be tough since Full Moons intensify what exists, but buy yourself time if that's what your intuition says.  Open your mind without fixing it on one thing. Sagittarius Full Moon is mutable and that means movement and change. Many things will be in process and need some more time to sort out. Truths emerge, whether easy or ready or not. In the absence of anything too heated or overpowering, enjoy and be reasonably adventurous. Today's color is white.

 

Sunday: Mercury Direct

Mercury stations at 9:20 am. This is not a predictable day. Sun opposes Mars and Full Moon is still present. Try to keep expectations and emotions in check. Feel what you feel but avoid spilling it out into drama or events that affect other people. In other words, don't take it out on the world.  Practice patience. Be kind-to yourself and others. There's a lot going on and some understanding goes a long way.  Moon meets Saturn and brings up real, pressing life stuff. Re-read yesterday's for more about today. Wear purple.

May 9th to 15th, 2016

Immerse yourself in a deeply restorative yoga practice including Yin and Restorative postures to release stored tension and the kinks and twists that result from everyday life, habitual movements and challenging emotions. Crystal bowl sounds and tuning fork vibrations have a mysterious and healing effect throughout practice. Aromatherapy options can be worn as a patch, or you can decline the aromatherapy option. Scents and oils go directly into the skin, not the air in the room.

Friday, May 13th 6-8 pm at Greener Postures in South Portland

Monday: Jupiter Direct in Virgo

Jupiter is retrograde for about 50% of your life, so in a way there's nothing unusual about the period of time we just went through since fall. If you were able to learn, grow, expand upon something, revive a project or relationship, or finally connect with the health advice or diagnosis you needed, wonderful! Those things may all move with more fluidity and less effort now. Of course, 4 other planets appear to be moving backwards in the heavens (yes, it's really an illusion and illusion can be a problem now). But overall, if you're a Virgo, work in service to others, are manifesting your own life purpose, and trying to attract more prosperity and make healthy changes, Jupiter direct is a little bonus to help keep the flow going. Jupiter turns direct today at 8:14 am EDT in Virgo.

 

The Moon is void of course in Gemini, a scattered and spacey time when mental challenges are tough. Relaxing, exercising and focusing on organization are good ways to spend the morning. At !:24 pm EDT, the Moon ends a 12 hour void time and shifts to water sign Cancer. The Sun meets Mercury, and it's time to revise a statement or be willing to change your strongly held opinion. People will speak ab out their deepest, most firmly entrenched beliefs. Venus aligns with Neptune for romantic gestures and creative endeavors.  Today's color is white.

 

Tuesday: Cancer Moon

The planets are very communicative today, with a wide variety of influences. Moon opposes Pluto in a monthly pattern that requires acknowledging emotion even if you cannot act on the feeling.  Family and home are priorities.  Venus forms a lovely trine to Jupiter in Taurus/Virgo, enhancing love and relationship. The Moon aligns with Venus and Mercury retro, turning attention back to things or people you care for deeply, even if there's been estrangement or a leaving.  It may be only in the mind that you experience any of this. There's no need to act unless you're ready and willing. Sentiment is strong today, and reminiscing will be natural.  Today's color is pink.

 

Wednesday: Cancer to Leo Moon

In the wee hours, the Moon and Sun align, then Uranus adds impact from Aries. Check emails and messages right away in case of last minute changes. At 3:34 am EDT the Moon is void of course until 5:32 pm EDT. Be gentle and take your time with things today. No pushing or coercing. Tonight's Leo Moon inspires some fun, competition and action. Play games, go out and see friends.  Wear orange.

 

Thursday: Leo Moon, Mercury trine Pluto

Warming Leo Moon aligns with Saturn and Mars retrograde in Sagittarius. Old business can result in headaches and heartaches, but this is a revision time and Leo Moon adds optimism and a can-do attitude. Some things will require more effort now, including travel arrangements, long distance business and getting shipping timely and right. Sagittarius, you may be experiencing this quite a lot. For all of us, patience and warmth go a long way. Where might you take a more easy, playful or amused attitude rather than focusing on complaints and frustrations. Events and decisions take their own sweet time now. Mercury retrograde and Pluto align and we can be productively reflective and thoughtful today, possibly seeing things in a different light. Awareness can be a quiet, solitary process. Give yourself time to think or to not think about anything at all and let fresh ideas move in on their own, when you're not trying so hard. Today's color is gold.

 

Friday: Mercury conjunct Venus in Taurus, Venus trine Pluto

Reconnect with the past. It'll happen unintentionally too. This looks like a day of reunions, forgiveness, overdue conversations, and chance encounters.  Live for the day, enjoy reconciliations and getting together, but keep promises for another time. See how things go. Be caring and genuine. The morning is best for shopping or business transactions and meetings. The afternoon void of course Moon is 1:02 pm through 1:52 am EDT on Friday. Have some fun. Aspects are quite good and maybe this will be a loving and lucky day for you! Today's color is yellow.

 

Saturday: Virgo Moon

Virgo Moon begins at 1:52 am, and the Moon squares Mars in Sagittarius. Mars is retro and the details of things, like travels, tests or contracts come up for some problem solving.  It may be inconvenient and some will over react, triggered by Mars.  Otherwise, do practical things like clean, organize, and sort. Be careful you don't toss something you'll wish you held onto.  Take a grounded approach. Today's color is brown.

 

Sunday: Virgo Moon conjunct Jupiter

Virgo Moon meets Jupiter, now direct, in their first encounter like this since late summer. There are many other aspects, but this is a day of growth, prosperity, attention to both details and the big picture. Envision and manifest.  Mercury retrograde is in harmony with the Moon, bringing up past personal or work things for new resolution and understanding.  Today's color is green.

 

May 2nd to 7th, 2016

Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, Mars, & Mercury currently retrograde.

Monday: Pisces Moon

Waning Moon in Pisces begins the business week. A mix of planetary influences indicate that creative energy swells while analytical work and negotiations are challenging (at best). With Mercury retrograde, get back to personal projects and priorities.  Future scheduling and planning is unreliable, but you can still do it knowing that dates may need to be adjusted later.  Nurturing, healing, planting and other ways of connecting to earth and water are favored. The past may come up for resolution. Today's color is green.

 

Tuesday: Pisces to Aries Moon, Sun trine Jupiter

The Sun and Jupiter harmonize in Taurus/Virgo. This favorable aspect puts blessings on many things today, including health and abundance.  Aries and Leo are favored financially.  Sagittarius and Leo also get good career vibes and shine in the public eye.  Taurus and Virgo fare well overall. Pisces Moon is void from 1:08 am to 1:04 pm. The Moon and Mercury retrograde lead to surprise reunions and requests for second chances. Aries Moon starts at 1:04 pm and by tonight the Moon is approaching a trine to Mars retrograde in Sag. Keep interactions simple and avoid showing anger. Things could flare up quickly or unexpectedly all through Wednesday. Wear orange.

 

Wednesday: Aries Moon

The Moon aligns with Mars and Saturn while both retrograde in Sagittarius. Unresolved business and matters of truth come up. Uranus chimes in from Aries and Pluto from Capricorn. Ideally this brings an enlightened idea, but it may not be received well enough to fly.  Alternately, this could be way too much fire. Be careful with anger, tempers, and strong reactions.  Today's color is white.

 

Thursday: Aries to Taurus Moon

Aries Moon is void from 12:17 am EDT to 1:17 pm. All bets are off. The Aries meeting of Uranus and Moon overnight can create shock and sudden onset of feelings or reactions.  That's rarely welcome or useful. Try to tame your own responses and not add to a volatile mix, if it exists around you. Taurus Moon at 1:17 pm leads to New Moon at 3:30 pm on Friday. Today, rethink your priorities and course of action. Do something cozy tonight and stay in trusted territory if possible. Wear pink.

 

Friday: New Moon

Taurus New Moon is official at 3:30 pm EDT, and today the Moon meets both Venus, planet of love, and Mercury, now retrograde, along with the Sun. Pluto, Jupiter and Neptune harmonize with the Moon. It's an auspicious day and many things will go easily, but do not forget that five planets are retrograde. Avoid trying too hard, pushing where there doesn't seem to be any yield, or acting on impulse. The retrogrades are meant for processing and there will be silver linings and clear reasons why delays and things occurred. Do your best not to miscommunicate.  Enjoy the earth, people around you, and sensual pleasures including healthy, delicious foods. The Moon is void of course from 10:10 pm on. Today's color is yellow.

 

Saturday: Taurus to Gemini Moon, Sun trine Pluto

Sun trine Pluto is a chance to check in with yourself. Are you being realistic and showing your true colors, or are you hiding things or pretending problems don't exist?  Face yourself directly today. The Moon moves into Gemini at 12:35 pm, and opposes Mars. Emotions could be difficult to deal with. There's no winning an argument. It appears that everyone loses in that case.  Today's color is black.

 

Sunday: Mother's Day, Gemini Moon

Gemini is sign of siblings. Cooperating with yours is a good idea for a happy Mother's Day. Planets indicate challenge today and it may present as mental, intellectual or relate to boundaries. Know your limits, but act with sensitivity as much as possible.  Be clear without being harsh.  Today's color is blue.

April 25th to May 1st, 2016

 

Thanks to all who have joined me for RoZoYo®, Robin's Zodiac Yoga, since 2013. I'm celebrating 3 years with yoga and gallery style readings Saturday at Scarborough Yoga. Thanks to Cakes Extraordinaire for creating the birthday cake we'll share.

RoZoYo® continues this summer outdoors beginning Thursday, June 2nd, 7-8am on Congress Square in Portland. Bring your own mat and water, get a great yoga start to your day and some astrology insight along the way. It'll be free. Thank Friends of Congress Square Park on High and Congress Street for keeping this important public space alive with great events.

 

Monday: Sagittarius Moon

Let's start by clarifying retrograde dates with relevance to this week. Mars is retrograde until June 29th. Endeavors begun now, even with a strong start, are likely to wane and lack luster over time. It's not a favorable time to start a business, for example. Saturn is retrograde until August 13th, Jupiter has been retro since January and will be direct on May 9th, and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn is April 18th to September 26th.

The primary time of retrograde focus and effects will be now through May when both Mercury and Mars impact our activities, plans, moods and communication.

On this particular day, the Sagittarius Moon meets both Mars and Saturn, both retrograde. The tendency is to revisit old business and run into stumbling blocks, obstacles and possibly negative attitudes.  Sagittarius Moon doesn't usually bring out the sensitive, tactful side of people. The Moon squares Jupiter retrograde in Virgo. Questions come up about growth, development, expansion and health. Neptune in Pisces is also squaring the Moon. Be aware of escapism, toxicity, and unrealistic thoughts or plans in your dealings with others.  This is probably not the best day to make a long term agreement or establish trust.  It's worth looking over old business and considering outdated thought patterns and systems, but not the best time to change them. Brainstorm and revisit later on.  Even vacation like plans may not go smoothly. Today is about remaining flexible and open minded as well as non committal. Today's color is black.

 

Tuesday: Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon

The Moon in Sag is void of course, waiting to change signs, from 11:51 am EDT to 7:54 pm. More of yesterday's vibes weave through these hours.  Spontaneous plans happen more readily and fluidly.  The Moon aligns with Uranus and Venus. Relationship eventfulness is likely. You may hear of a breakup or have to confront someone you're close to. Do those things with care since Uranus is very volatile and unpredictable.  Don't assume anything today.  Capricorn Moon brings earth back into the mix this evening. It's a more efficient time for studies and other work.   The Moon approaches a trine to the Sun, exact in the morning. Head and heart may align more easily and decisions that have to made come together with fewer uncertainties.  Mercury retrograde is very close now, so act with care including terms of agreements that must be understood well. Today's color is brown.

 

Wednesday: Capricorn Moon

The Moon harmonizes with Neptune, Jupiter and the Sun. The most favorable aspects of the week are here if you must time something. Imagination, helpfulness, productivity and confidence get a boost. Work outdoors, build, take care of plants, trees, the earth and your bank accounts.  Today's color is green.

 

Thursday: Mercury Retrograde in Taurus

Mercury retrogrades in Taurus from 1:20 pm EDT to May 22nd. The Moon meets Pluto retrograde and trines Mercury retrograde in Taurus today. Avoid important business, old triggers and patterns that get you into trouble or out of favor with someone you care about or work with.  The Moon squares Uranus in Aries, which is also not helpful at all. I just wouldn't pick today for anything that could go very wrong or miss the mark completely including personal conversations.  Today's color is yellow. Read more about Mercury retrograde here.

 

Friday: Venus in Taurus, Aquarius Moon

The Moon is shortly void of course, from 3:07 to 4:47 am EDT and then in Aquarius, a sign of vision and intellect.  Moon squares Venus overnight and forms a sextile with Mars. In love and relationship, some will get a rocky start today. Venus changes signs at 8:36 pm EDT. The planet of partnership and harmony is kind of impulsive and bold in Aries, but in Taurus she's right in her element. It's a sensual time and pairs with Mercury in Taurus for relationship reconnections. Sometimes reconnecting simply means paying attention to each other again. Use this time to improve your relationship while staying off topics of major opposition. Those can be dealt with later in the spring/summer. Have fun together again for now.  Moon and Sun square tonight in Aquarius/Taurus. These are fixed signs so you may notice or feel stubbornness or persistence.  Wear pink today.

 

Saturday: Aquarius Moon

The Moon in Aquarius favors gatherings. I chose this Taurus date for my Robin's Zodiac Yoga birthday event. Of all the Saturdays at this time of year, I like this best for social events. It's also reasonable for attending to old business, reviving interest in projects that were abandoned or unfinished, and for spontaneous ideas.  The Moon does square Mercury retrograde so communication and technical problems may crop up. Be prepared and have a plan B just in case. Void of course Moon begins at 10:56 pm. Today's color is turquoise.

 

Sunday: Pisces Moon, Sun trine Neptune

It's a very Pisces/Taurus sort of day. Enjoy comfortable places and situations. Be with people you trust and love without condition. Bask in the sun, play in the water, and eat good food. Fishing and planting are favored in the almanacs. This makes a nice lazy or outdoorsy Sunday.  Show empathy. Be creative. Avoid  dinner time or late night arguments as the Moon squares Mars. Pointless debates are indicated, and there's unlikely to be agreement or solutions, only hard feelings.  Take care of yourself and each other. Blue is today's color.

April 18th to 24th, 2016

Monday: Virgo Moon, Venus trine Saturn

Mars is now retrograde. Grand openings and elective surgeries are two things to schedule outside this time period, through June 29th. Things don't tend to have the desired results, the aura of success and excitement, and the precision when Mars appears to retrace his path. Any kind of launch is better timed with Mars direct. Mars is in Sagittarius, so I think world travel may be restricted or full of challenge too, through June. Mercury retrograde begins on April 28th and adds to the delays and other effects. Pluto retrograde starts today, but has a less intense personal impact. May is a month to schedule around rather than in. 

Virgo Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn and Mercury in Taurus. At 8:29 am the Moon is void of course until 7:24 am EDT Tuesday. A relaxed and simple day is called for. Take care of usual tasks and follow routines. Venus in Aries aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius. This is like a young woman befriending a grandfatherly man, where youth meets wisdom or a free spirit appreciates an ancient text and the laws of nature. These are symbolic examples of how very different forces can come together for best case outcomes today. Venus is quite active in Aries this week and status changes will become noticeable. Do you want more freedom or a bit more structure in your relationship? Both are possible and easier to come by today. Have a relationship conversation or interaction even with void of course Moon, which also can relax the circumstances.  It's a good day to find forgiveness, but maybe with terms of agreement to live by. Today's color is pink. 

 

Tuesday: Sun in Taurus, Libra Moon

The middle of spring comes as Sun moves to Taurus at 11:29 am. The Moon is in Libra as of 7:24 am. Both signs are ruled by Venus, planet of love, harmony, and beauty.  Venus squares Pluto for confronting fears around love and relationship. Trust issues come up. Pluto is in heavy, earthy Capricorn, emotionally reserved, and Venus in enthusiastic, bold Aries. These traits may be in conflict, looking for middle ground, either between two of you or within yourself.  Squares create the kind of tension that leads to progress or breakthrough.  Work through a relationship perception or reality today. New love may suffer from some fear of going forward. Libra Moon has no special aspects and encourages compromise, sense of beauty, and friendly meetings.  Today's color is blue.

Wednesday: Libra Moon

Libra Moon opposes Venus, squares Pluto, and is in harmony with Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius. You may find yourself thinking and re-thinking situations today. The tendency to over-analyze can get in the way of any action. If the pros and cons are clear, buy or do before Mercury retrograde.  Air sign Libra is intellect. Negotiate skillfully with logical reasoning.  Make time to dance and hear music. Full Moon warmup is ever present, so conclusions, finalities, and the last word could come now. Today's color is lavender.

Thursday: Libra Moon opposite Uranus

Wild ideas happen overnight into morning as the opposition of Moon and Uranus occurs at 2:13 am EDT.  Sometimes a spontaneous burst of energy or thought is worth following up, yet other times it turns out to be too impulsive and not a good plan at all. Give yourself a bit of think time before acting overnight and through the day.  Uranus in Aries is both ingenious and volatile.  Air feeds fire, so watch out where flames or electricity are involved. The Moon is (near) Full today, so many things will be exaggerated, amplified and at peak point.  With a void of course Moon from 2:13 am to 8:17 pm EDT, take no unnecessary chances.  Scorpio Moon moves in tonight at 8:17 and is full at 1:24 am EDT. Today's color is white.

Friday: Full Moon in Scorpio

The Full Moon of all that's secret, hidden, mysterious and potent, Scorpio Full Moon brings out issues that are tough to tackle, sometimes difficult to express or discuss, and emotionally based. What we became aware of and immersed in during last month's lunar eclipse may reach another level of completion too. Also, on this day, Venus and Uranus meet in Aries. Flashes of inspiration lead to brand new things, including relationships. This could prompt love at first sight. Quick developments and changes in partnerships are likely. This mini Full Moon looks small from earth, but don't let that mislead you. It will draw out innermost feelings, concerns, and potentially self expression.  The Moon is Full at 1:24 am EDT. Today's color is indigo.

Saturday: Scorpio Moon

Scorpio Moon opposes Mercury in Taurus and aligns with Pluto. A continuation of Full Moon realizations, unraveling of mysteries, and strong statements ensues.  Things we'd rather not face or make public come up at times like this. Protect your privacy.  Keep promises, and commit fully or not at all.  Void of course Moon starts at 5:46 pm. Today's color is maroon.

Sunday: Sagittarius Moon

At 8:46 am EDT, the Moon moves to Sagittarius, sign of free thinking and philosophy.  The next significant aspect of the Moon is a meeting with Mars retrograde on Monday morning.  Enjoy travels and good books while the Moon stimulates ideas, knowledge and different perspectives. Clear your schedule of unnecessary appointments. Philosophical conversations are likely, but watch out for spontaneous arguments as the Moon approaches Mars. Old problems are best handled another time.Today's color is purple.

April 11th to 17th, 2016

Monday: Gemini Moon

Gemini Moon squares Jupiter overnight setting us up for problem solving. Get right to it. It appears there's no time to waste today. Writing, meditating, setting up terms and contracts are favored. Intellectual energy dominates the day. Try not to let anxiety result from overanalyzing, which could be a tendency. At 2:57 pm EDT, the Moon moves void of course. Do business and your best thinking before then. Debates are likely as the Moon opposes Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius. Solutions could come rapidly though as the Moon aligns with innovative and speedy Uranus in Aries and with the Sun for decisiveness and quick action.  Today's color is red.

 

Tuesday: Cancer Moon, Venus trine Mars

After an overnight void of course time, the Moon moves to Cancer at 4:07 am EDT. Watch yourself for mistakes during the v.o.c. when locking yourself out or leaving doors unlocked, misplacing things or bigger errors in judgment are more likely.  Cancer Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces, and Neptune aligns with Mercury in Taurus. A nurturing, creative, sentimental feeling results. Take care of whom and what you cherish.  Venus and Mars align in Aries/Sagittarius, exciting for lovers traveling together, for new relationships, and for moving on things which require partnership agreement and may include spontaneous action.  Many things go over well today. Harmony from these aspects reaches all signs. Wear light blue.

 

Wednesday: Cancer Moon

Cancer Moon has mixed influences today. Mercury and Jupiter are in harmony, in earth signs. This helps us get things done and eases conversations. Intimacy, growth in understanding and caring are some effects.  Pluto is across the zodiac in a monthly opposition to the Moon, and Uranus and the Sun in Aries square Cancer Moon. These aspects often recreate patterns of fear, tension, and anxiety. If you know those things could come up, maybe you can head them off with preparation and healthy boundaries or personal habits. Talk yourself out of an emotional pattern you could do without. Responses are important today. Try not to engage in old arguments or known triggers especially with family or within  yourself. Void Moon begins at 11:59 pm EDT and lasts into mid morning. Today's color is white.

 

Thursday: Leo Moon

At 9:53 am EDT, Moon moves to Leo. Mercury aligns with Jupiter for ease in agreements, promotion of good health, and important conversations.  Leo is the zodiac's optimist and we have the practical aspects to take positivity into action.  Communication and prosperity as well as public speaking and performances are favored. Do something great today! Wear gold.

 

Friday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon is active with several aspects, continuing yesterday's optimism and adding a need for serious intent and strength or courage. Make a bold, long term decision before Mars and Mercury retrograde kick in (Sunday and April 28th in that order.) Saturn adds wisdom and the voice of experience. Take your time (hours, not days!) with the terms of a long term decision. If it's not ready yet, maybe wait until at least late May. There's fun to be had, as well. Today's color is purple.

 

Saturday: Leo to Virgo Moon

Leo Moon lines up with Aries Sun and Uranus. Today's qualities and events take on a competitive, original, dynamic tone.  Fast paced and with reckless abandon in some cases, the world could seem a bit wild.  On the upside, spontaneity is favored. On the other side, keep your head on straight as others may not.  On the road, for example, keep your eyes and ears open.  Enjoy a good time on a social day. From 1:48 to 7:23 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course (be extra aware or careful), and then moves to Virgo. Mars retrograde begins Sunday. Travel, among other things, may be delayed and restricted in the next several weeks. Today's color is navy blue.

 

Sunday: Virgo Moon, Mercury trine Pluto

It's an earth bound, grounded day for tasks, sensibility and honesty especially with oneself. Pluto brings up issues that are often shelved or considered taboo. Those topics will be faced and discussed. This can be done productively and without excessive emotion. Avoid areas of strong disagreement as Mars retrograde begins at 8:14 am EDT until June 29th. Show sensitivity and try to act from a non judgmental place. The Moon and Jupiter meet for blessings, health and abundance. Note what you're grateful for. Today's color is brown.

 

April 4th to 10th, 2016

 

Monday: Pisces Moon

Pisces Moon moves in at 1:45 am EDT, squares Mars and meets Neptune. The sensitive and subdued clash with the bold and brazen today. Find comfort in creative projects, drift from one thing to another and expect to feel.  Those out of touch with feelings or driven to a goal could unintentionally hurt feelings by overlooking something like a birthday, a pressing need or a job well done. Sharp edges can be smoothed with conscious attention and a bit of empathy.  Tone the fire down during Pisces Moon and you'll get along better with others. If you're being overly sensitive and letting unintended slights bother you too much, maybe you can put that in perspective and just do your own thing.  This is a good day to remember the phrase "never take things personally".  Care for pets, immerse in natural surroundings, and be inspired.  Work on music, art, film, landscape and gardening, and anything water related, like boats and surfboards.  Light green is today's color. 

 

Tuesday: Void of course Moon, Sun trine Saturn

At 6:33 am EDT, the Moon begins a long void of course time in Pisces. Until 2:46 am EDT Wednesday, life is likely to feel less grounded and our minds less sharp. The Moon makes a few early morning moves including a square to Saturn, and the Sun forms a harmonious trine to Saturn which balances things out. Saturn means responsibility and wisdom along with challenge and sometimes restrictions and rules.  As today's prevalent force, Saturn is likely to bring decisions and announcements.  The Sun in Aries says 'bring on the new!'. Saturn reminds us to think twice and commit when we're sure.  On this void of course Moon day, leave room for altering your course of action as soon as tomorrow. Agree only to the right terms and resist or delay if something seems out of place. Venus moves to Aries at 12:50 pm EDT, and spring fever is here with the planet of love in the first sign. Revitalize your romantic life during April. Mercury crosses the threshold to Taurus today for strong voice and long term agreements for the next few weeks. Note that Mercury retrograde starts on April 28th. Today's color is yellow.

 

Wednesday: Aries Moon conjunct Venus, Sun square Pluto

Aries Moon time starts at 2:46 am EDT. As Venus and the Moon meet, new relationships excite and may create some anxiety too. Crushes heat up, romances refresh, and everything new is appealing.  We're more likely to act on our passions, try things, and allow for spontaneity. Also, today the Sun squares Pluto in a struggle between light and dark. This could manifest in self doubt or conflicting plans or opinions. Try not to let doubt spoil what's exciting and full of promise.  Talk yourself down if need be.  Breaking with tradition could be both attractive and difficult. Be courageous. New Moon is tomorrow, so reconsider your course and prepare for fresh starts. Today's color is red.

 

Thursday: New Moon in Aries

New Moon is at 7:24 am EDT, and Uranus, the revolutionary planet, is next to the Sun and Moon. Pluto squares the Moon and Saturn forms a harmonious trine.  Vibrations of last month's solar eclipse fill the air. We'll hear about or announce next moves.  Sudden and surprising opportunities present themselves. Stay in touch with sources of whatever you need or are hoping for. Pluto can pull our energy inward, and some negativity or doubt could surface. However, the fire of Sun, Moon, and other planets in fire signs is stronger. Turn down the volume on judgment, shame, or low self esteem. Reach for the brass ring, the winning situation, and clear physical and mental space.  Think of today as a blank canvas ready to be filled with color. Avoid overthinking. Say yes to that thing you really want, the one you know is right. College acceptances are definitely part of this as Saturn aspects the New Moon from Sagittarius, sign of higher learning. Void of course Moon 10:56 am EDT until Friday morning. Today's color is white.

 

Friday: Taurus Moon

Taurus Moon moves in at 2:10 am and meets Mercury. We'll mean what we say. It's a day for follow through, so commit if you're absolutely certain. Know the terms of agreements and pursue your goals with methodical, step by step plans.  Prosperity and comfort are Taurus Moon values. Create both to the best of your current ability. Visualize having everything you need, provide something that makes life better for yourself and someone else.  Do something rather than just talking about it. Taurus rules your voice and throat and Mercury rules words. Statements hold power today. Moon and Neptune align for taking dreams to a real, tangible level. Make something happen. It's a good night for gatherings with your closest friends. Prepare or enjoy a great meal. Today's color is green.

 

Saturday: Void of course Moon

It's another long void of course Moon during waking hours from 5:49 am EDT until after 1 am Sunday. Major purchases are not recommended, though if you've done your research and are just making the payment on something you ordered, you're probably safe. Save receipts and clarify return policies if you're buying. We like to shop during Taurus Moon, when abundance is celebrated and acquiring is natural. Moon trine Jupiter sets up a strong day. Exercise, spruce up your home, and enjoy being outside or otherwise engaging your senses. Pleasurable activities are favored. Live in the moment. Sun meets Uranus, pointing out all that's changing. It's a party night, though we always want to be a little bit cautious when Uranus is active. Have fun and respect limits.  Today's color is yellow.

 

Sunday: Gemini Moon

At 1:59 am EDT the Moon moves to Gemini. During this changeable and versatile Moon time, think differently, choose wording and negotiate terms.  It's a social day, marked by Venus in harmony with the Moon. Form new friendships, travel in groups, and surround with like minded people. Mars is opposite the Moon and can instigate arguments or maybe healthy debates. If you must debate, so it with intelligence rather than dominance. Construct support for your opinion if you are out to convince.  The Moon squares Neptune in Pisces. Avoid irrational or unrealistic thinking. Be imaginative with projects and writing.  Today's color is pink.

Monday: Sagittarius Moon conjunct Mars

At 2:46 am EDT, the Moon moves to Sagittarius for movement and action. Mars adds to the effect with boldness, courage, and willingness to confront. Have awareness so you don't push too far and achieve an effect opposite what you really want.  Be honest without being blunt, for example. Sagittarius Moon can put us out of touch with feelings, especially where Mars is so enthusiastic today. If you're moving, for example, remember that others are probably sad about you leaving regardless of how excited you are.  Education, global travel and business, and transportation matters are activated.  If you need a new vehicle, this is a decent time to be looking or buying, before a later spring Mercury retrograde.  The Moon and Sun align for energy, confidence, and newness.  Level of activity and enthusiasm are likely to heighten.  Neptune squares the Moon. Be aware of escapist tendencies and find relief and creativity in healthy ways versus altered states. Today's color is light blue.

 

Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon conjunct Saturn &  Mercury trine Saturn

 

Saturn is the planet of sage advice, wisdom, challenge and responsibility. Ruler of Capricorn, Saturn requests structure, sensibility, and maturity.  Sagittarius is a sign of free thinking and philosophy. You may ponder the meaning and purpose of life on a day like this. Freedom and responsibility, and how they co-exist, is a theme. Decisions, determinations and agreements will be made as Mercury and Saturn align in the fire signs. Get or give the go ahead on a project, move, or travel plan.  Legal matters activate for resolution.  University and other program acceptances come. Be decisive and promote your own growth. The Moon aspects 5 planets on this day of variety and eventfulness.  Much of this will go easy, though relationship negotiations require more effort. Void of course Moon is from 9:55 pm to 1:45 pm EDT on Wednesday. Today's color is yellow.

 

Wednesday: Sag to Capricorn Moon

Void of course Moon starts the day. Timeliness is questionable. Mercury is square to Pluto. Examine motives and avoid being on either side of manipulative actions. Choose words creatively as  you express deep feelings including concerns.  Save important business or purchases for 1:45 pm EDT on. Capricorn Moon has no aspects in the afternoon and evening. Organize, take charge as needed, and get things done.  Today's color is black.

 

Thursday: Capricorn Moon conjunct Pluto, Mercury conjunct Uranus

Unexpected announcements and system changes are due. Capricorn energy is authoritative, so the news will trickle down from whomever or whatever organization is in charge.  There's also a reflective nature to Moon/Pluto conjunction, and questions of leadership, reality, and willingness come up.  Mercury and Uranus favor innovative, pioneering approaches. The different-ness will bother some and excite others.  Change and growth are in the air today. Welcome it or adjust if you don't like it. The inevitability will be evident.  Do hands on work and show results.  Today's color is green.

 

Friday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon

The Capricorn Moon is solid for morning meetings and negotiations. Look for common ground as some tension results from two morning squares.  Uranus squares the Moon indicating quick fixes are needed.  Leaders could emerge, but that doesn't mean everyone instantly jumps on board. Work through obstacles before 12:39 pm EDT when the void of course Moon starts. Get to routine tasks and organization after that time. Hold the phone unless you're up for a lengthy conversation. The Moon and Venus form a compatible sextile for a blend of imaginative, versatile and practical approaches. It may also help people get along better.  At 9:37 pm EDT, the Moon moves to Aquarius, sign of friendship, community and uniqueness. It's a nice night out, though late night work involving your own projects is appealing too. Gather with people who share your mission, or for fun. Today's color is blue.

 

Saturday: Aquarius Moon

Moon in harmony with Mars in Sagittarius and the Sun in Aries makes for an optimistic, energetic day. Enjoy time with friends or at events. Aquarius Moon time is friendly, inventive, and fixed on goals.  Original thinking, brainstorming, and scientific processes are favored all weekend. The pace may be fast, but you can find your own flow within it. Today's color is silver.

 

Sunday:  Aquarius Moon sextile Uranus, Saturn, Mercury

Today is much like Saturday, with harmony between Moon and planets. Serious decisions could be made or announced today. We're still adjusting to eclipse eventfulness this spring, and change continues to pervade the environment and impact us. You may be a bystander or directly involved in those processes. People will tend to say what they mean today, but conversations are favored and may go more easily than anticipated.  Be direct and realistic.  At 7:16 pm, void of course Moon time starts (until 1:45 am EDT). Today's color is turquoise.

March 21st to 27th, 2016

 

Monday: Mercury in Aries

Mercury follows the Sun to Aries at 8:19 pm EDT.  Progressive ideas are likely and the tendency to initiate grows for the next few weeks. Mercury is direct all month though Saturn retrograde begins this Friday the 25th. There's a good window of opportunity right now. Also, with the lunar eclipse arriving Wednesday at 8:01 am, a series of eclipses completes and therefore, much activity around closure including endings that were long in the works even if they seem abrupt.  Today the Moon is in Virgo, void of course tonight at 11:55 pm EDT all through Tuesday and until Wednesday at 1:23 am EDT. That's quite a long v.o.c. time so do business today and get details of travel, meetings, contracts and other events of this week sorted out and clear to all involved.  The Moon opposes Neptune and Venus in Pisces, squares Saturn in Sag and forms a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. The effects vary, however do what you can to tie up loose ends, meet due dates and create best case scenarios on this Virgo Moon day. Use versatile thinking and methods. The Moon and Jupiter favor approvals, healthy decisions, and growth. Today's color is yellow.

 

Tuesday: Void of Course Moon

The Moon is in Virgo, void of course all day. Stick to a plan that's been decided on. Last minute changes could be very confusing. Do routine tasks and work toward a goal, especially if it's something due this week. Have a thoughtful editor. Double check calendars and appointment times. Rest and exercise lightly. This isn't the time to push too hard. The Full Moon energy may exaggerate things. Find the value in moderation. Jupiter is square to Saturn, a difficult combination if you're trying to settle a decision or dispute. That angle is exact on Wednesday at 6:15 am and the hours leading up to it are characterized by discussions or inner turmoil focused on expansion versus limitation as well as limiting beliefs and lack of faith and optimism.  The Moon is just hours from Full this evening and the eclipse is at 8:01 am EDT Wednesday. Today's color is brown.

 

Wednesday: Lunar Eclipse in Libra

The lunar eclipse in Libra ends a 2 1/2 year series in Libra/Aries. Mercury is also opposite the Moon and meeting the Sun on this day. Mars in Sagittarius supports the Moon near eclipse time.  Eclipse effects and events are rarely things you would have predicted. Outcomes will surprise and in some cases, unsettle or disturb the balance. However, these endings and beginnings have been in the works, even if they've been obscured. Eclipses illuminate, accelerate, and in this case, finalize things. The Sun and Mercury in Aries lead to announcements, news, self expression and initiation. It's an eclipse of air and fire that sets us up for concluding chapters with partners (of any sort). Finalize settlements, and expect dynamic, rapid changes.  Resetting balance and correcting injustices are part of Full Moon in Libra's work. Today's color is white.

 

Thursday: Libra Moon opposite Uranus, Mercury trine Mars

Change is the one surefire effect of Wednesday's lunar eclipse. The next two weeks hold the most eclipse power and then around April's Full Moon the vibrations will grow again. Today, with Uranus opposing the Moon, change could feel abrupt, chaotic, or in some cases very welcome- though quick! Whether you're taken by surprise, swept off your feet or need alternate plans in a flash, Mercury and Mars align for action. Travel plans are influenced and spontaneous plans may be needed or schedules may shift with little notice. There's also activity around education, higher learning and training, global business and connections, and of course relationships and roles, the primary focus of the lunar eclipse. The Moon is void of course from 4:55 pm EDT until 2:09 pm on Friday. Take smart precautions and no unnecessary risks then. Today's color is lavender.

 

Friday: Libra to Scorpio Moon, Venus opposite Jupiter and square Saturn

The Moon is void until 2:09 pm EDT. Let the early hours be simple if possible. Take things as they come. Avoid overreacting or over worry. It's a good morning for a leisurely start. If not, avoid arguments and do check the calendar since things may be easily forgotten or overlooked. It could be a good time to ask forgiveness and be pardoned.  Venus opposes Jupiter in Pisces/Virgo and later squares Saturn. Be realistic with your partner or ex. Try to avoid hurt feelings. Be sensitive as your sort out situations. Responsibility could be a hot topic today. Growing and changing in positive ways is possible now. Don't overdo or exaggerate an issue. Get to the point and find consensus or compromise. Try not to agree to something you know you won't be able to achieve or follow through with. These Venus aspects relate to Jupiter square Saturn early in the week and closure of an ordeal, misunderstanding or negotiation could come now. Today's color is pink.

 

Saturday: Scorpio Moon

The Scorpio Moon is in harmony with Venus and Jupiter. Love and creativity are favored. Venus sextile Uranus may show up as relationship status changes. The eclipse continues to be an agent of partnership changes that were due, as well. Sun in Aries aligns with Mars for a fiery, passionate and dynamic day. Whatever is initiated, the tendency is to go full force. Today's color is red.

 

Sunday: Scorpio Moon

Scorpio Moon aligns with Pluto, an introverted influence, and is then aligns with Venus and is void of course from 3:25 am until 2:46 am EDT on Monday. This is Easter and there is a spiritual aspect even if you are not into religious holidays or celebrations.  Scorpio and Pluto relate to things we cannot see or prove. Venus in Pisces stimulates intuition and empathy. Feelings are amplified.  Find some peace today. Wear purple.

Monday: Gemini Moon

 

The zodiac buzzes with activity on this Gemini Moon day. Saturn squares Mercury and opposes the Moon. Contractual and other terms are up for discussion and it could be a slow process. However, Saturn provides the seriousness needed for a workable agreement. Too much debate could lead to arguments. If the meeting starts going downhill fast, it may be  best to call a truce or put things on hold. Venus squares Mars and relationship matters require some flexibility. Consider freedom and ability to pursue individual interests without losing a relationship in the process. It can be done. Squares dominate the heavens today, and in general that indicates much effort and attention is required. Solutions don't arrive magically under these conditions.  Decide what's worth your energy and time. Today's color is gold.

 

Tuesday: Mercury opposite Jupiter & sextile Pluto

 

Think back a week to events around the solar eclipse when the Sun opposed Jupiter. Today, Mercury opposes Jupiter, activating similar themes. On this 2nd quarter Moon day, half way to Full and the lunar eclipse, news and related changes come. Pisces and Virgo host this activity which results in growth and transformation. Mercury involves creativity, empathy, and sensitivity with words. Jupiter in Virgo aims for long term expansion around health and healing as well as food related themes like altering diet and constructing as well as other hands on work. For example, decide how to learn a new skill, for example through coursework or apprenticeship. Then expand that skill into a business.  If you've been considering that, the conditions may present themselves now.  In some cases, word received will feel transformative and something will be never quite the same.  Pluto adds that element, and don't fear it because change can be very good and necessary.  How can you shift from caterpillar to butterfly or shed old skin?  From 1:03 pm to 8:57 pm the Moon is void of course, then moves to Cancer.  Moon and Sun square can create a bit of internal stress, but a healthy amount of stress can lead to growth.  Challenge yourself without overdoing it. Today's color is white.

 

Wednesday: Jupiter trine Pluto

 

Pluto active with Jupiter leads to healing and letting go of outworn thought patterns. A healthier self image and openness to possibility can be the results.  The Cancer Moon aligns with Venus and Neptune. It's a loving, caring, compassionate day. With all this feeling energy, do not devolve into drama.  See things for what they are. Show caring or understanding for the ones you love, in healthy ways.  Family and home are highlighted during Cancer Moon. Follow a transformative path.  Today's color is blue.

 

Thursday: Cancer Moon opposite Pluto

 

Moon opposite Pluto is a continuation of yesterday's forecast. Process on an inner level even if you're not ready to express it to the world.  Cancer and Capricorn host the action.  Depth and introversion characterize changes going on inside.  All week and during March eclipses, evolutionary energy surrounds us.  The Moon aligns with Mercury for creative writers. Keep in touch with family and things going on around home. Today's color is light blue (with your St Pat's green of course!).

 

Friday: Leo Moon

 

The Moon is void of course at 12:09 am EDT until 3:54 am. Moon in Leo aligns with Mars in Sagittarius. Lots of energy and activation come from this fire sign alignment.  Be active, celebrate, find your fun friends, and move your body.  Hikes, road trips, theater and other performances are favored.  Kids may have excess energy so you plan for that. Be entertained.  Today's color is red.

 

Saturday: Leo Moon

 

The Moon is in harmony with Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius. There are echoes of Friday's forecast, yet more sense of obligation and potentially less freedom.  Do settle a business matter or anything else requiring focus and decision making. Take situations seriously.  Don't blow something important off.  Certain things may happen fast. Keep wits about you. Work before play.  At 4:43 pm EDT the Moon moves void until 1:39 pm EDT Sunday. Today's color is orange.

 

Sunday: Leo to Virgo Moon, Sun to Aries

 

This is the Spring Equinox and International Astrology Day.  The Sun shifts to Aries at 12:30 am EDT. Venus and Neptune have a creative, theatrical, harmonious and romantic influence in Pisces. Plan something special, or in Aries spirit, allow something to happen spontaneously. Enjoy the moment. The Moon and Mars square so try to avoid debates over philosophical differences. Value another's opinion, or respect it, even if quite different from yours. At 1:39 pm the Moon moves to Virgo. Today's color is navy blue.

 

March 7th to 13th, 2016 & Solar Eclispe in Pisces

Monday: Moon conjunct Venus and Mercury

Venus is about to follow Mercury to Pisces. Today the Moon meets Venus in Aquarius at 3:46 am, moves void of course, and sails to Pisces at 2:08 pm ET. The solar eclipse is in Pisces tomorrow at 8:54 pm and changes come with the speed of light. Today, before New Moon, rethink things. Even better, clear your mind as entirely as possible and try to have no specific expectation since eclipses surprise, awaken, and potentially blow our minds.  A clean sweep may be called for in a variety of situations, literal and metaphorical.  What needs to go? Pisces Moon meets Mercury, sign of speech, written words, planning, and transportation.  Planet of intellect in a sign of emotion asks that we get align our feelings and thoughts. Remember that emotion is an impermanent state.  A mix of objective perspective and subjective experience can keep you and your relationships in balance.  Knowing that an eclipse is coming, try to keep plans flexible and promises at a minimum for now. Today's color is yellow.

 

Tuesday: Solar Eclipse in Pisces, Sun and Moon opposite Jupiter

Let go of emotions and ideas that hold you back from healing and self expression as a solar eclipse initiates change. Transformation on the inside is necessary. Eclipse events will alter perspective, philosophy of life, relationships, and intentions.  The weeks ahead contain healing,  awakening and and finally "getting it".  Holding onto an emotion or state of mind may not be possible. A change you couldn't have foreseen leads to a new path.  An option closes and new doors open.  It's not necessarily easy. Trust is important during life changes, and yet Neptune meets the Moon at 6:11 am ET so it's equally essential that you don't romanticize, excuse, or believe only in what you choose.  Intuition is heightened by all this Pisces energy. Feel your way through. Don't expect everything overnight or rush your own process.  This solar eclipse is represented by the teacher/student, mentor/apprentice dynamic.  Often the student is also a teacher to the master, remember that. These roles are reversible.  What needs to be absorbed and learned this week? One must pay attention and be willing to receive and practice wisdom and mastery.  Recognize that we are always students, really.  Jupiter in Virgo reminds us to serve others, seek practical options, and expand our methods and skills. There's also a theme of fertility. Nurture growth and possibility as you plant any kind of seed. The eclipse is at 8:54 pm ET. Today's color is white.

note: "The total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Indonesia including Sumatra, Borneo, and Sulawesi, and from locations in the Pacific Ocean. Observers in northern and eastern Australia, in South Asia, and in East Asia will be able to see a partial eclipse."

 

Wednesday: Pisces to Aries Moon

The Moon moves to Aries, the action starter, after a void Moon time from 8:54 pm Tuesday night until 2:40 pm ET.  News may rock the morning, and during void of course Moon it's probably best not to overreact.  Stick to easy routines until 2:40 ET. Mars, Aries' planet, forms a trine to the Moon from Sagittarius. After a water sign (emotional) eclipse, this is fiery (dynamic, willful)  in contrast.  Things appear to, or in fact really do. speed up.  There's a boldness in the air that may be too much considering the changes, evolving news, and personal situations the solar eclipse is initiating now.  If it seems like backing off or hanging in the balance for a bit might help a situation out, do that.  Overreactions are likely today. Wear orange.

 

Thursday: Aries Moon trine Saturn, conjunct Uranus

Today looks like a wild one, even if that's not visible on the surface.  Release of tension is likely and more unexpected happenings are in store.  Practice being non reactive and find a healthy outlet for stress. Let a friend rely on you and vent over a problem.  Do everything with a bit of extra caution and do not put yourself in a position of compromise or vulnerability. Can you let things be, just for today? Wear black.

 

Friday: Mercury conjunct Neptune

Vibes of Tuesday's eclipse are in the air as Mercury and Neptune meet close to the scene of the solar eclipse.  Trust is today's theme. It must be earned by other people. Yet, the process and the sequence of events are not in our control during eclipse times. Control your response, though you cannot change events themselves.  If you can't see the meaning or the potential in what's changing now, at least find ways to be healthy and channel sadness, stress or even overstimulation. The Moon is in Aries, void of course from 1:24 pm to 2:44 pm ET. Taurus Moon follows. Keep that hour+ quiet and free of pressure. Moon and Venus align for travels, social happenings, and friendship. Be cautious and judicious with where you place trust and your valuables today, and all week long.  Today's color is  light blue.

Saturday: Venus in Pisces

Venus moves to Pisces, a sensitive, romantic spot for the planet of love and harmony.  Through March and into early April, Venus favors more creativity, fertility, compassion, empathy, and infatuations. Pisces, Scorpio, and Virgo should be feeling the love.  Taurus Moon aligns with planets in Pisces, Virgo, and Capricorn for ease with what needs to be done. Something you're not sure about could fall together quickly today.  Be loyal, constructive, and attuned to what your physical body needs, like nourishment, exercise, and rest.  Today's color is pink.

Sunday: Daylight Savings time Begins

Shift your clock overnight. This is the first day of extended daylight. The Moon is void of course from 5:46 am to 5:03 pm EDT. Moon sextile the Sun is harmonious and can help with confidence and decisions. Void Moon along with time change can have a spacey, surreal effect though. Try to be certain before agreeing. Moon squares Venus at 8:21 pm and then opposes Mars at 9:42 pm. Relationship decisions and conversations require effort and patience under Gemini Moon tonight. Today's color is yellow.

Monday: Venus sextile Saturn

Manage relationships with a balance of care and clarity as Venus and Saturn align. It may be easier to lean to the boundaries, restrictions or rules you're creating/abiding by in love and partnership, so make sure there's enough compassion and softness as well. Aquarius and Sagittarius by nature are not all that connected to emotion or may find it difficult to express. This detachment is a double edged sword. To make a breakthrough, the ability to be no nonsense and free of enabling behavior is helpful. However, if you're overly blunt, critical or lacking empathy, the same sword could be destructive. Communicate and act with sensitivity, even if you're freeing yourself of a role or restriction you no longer want.  The Moon squares Mercury, also in Aquarius, at 2:30 am and we make awake with things to say or write.  The Moon meets Mars in Scorpio, sometimes agitating and often activating. Get focused for the hours ahead, void of course from 2:55 pm to 6:56 pm where you can do routine work while avoiding a final word or meeting you want to be remembered.  At 6:56 pm the Moon shifts to Sagittarius, free thinking yet sometimes lacking in feeling.  Tuesday is also characterized by tension between individual wants and needs versus helping, nurturing and staying connected.  Today's color is purple.

 

Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon

Moon squares Neptune and the Sun, both in Pisces.  There's tendency to run or escape, and you may notice no shows or difficulty connecting or finding agreement.  All of this occurs in the mutable signs, so things can also shift quickly in any direction. Look for some yield in yourself or others.  Also don't be so yielding that you lose sight of or deny your true instincts and feelings. Be intuitive. Work through a creative block.  Today's color is light blue.

 

Wednesday: Venus sextile Uranus

Sagittarius Moon has many influences including a monthly meeting with Saturn. Monday's relationship themes, as in trying to find balance with freedom and commitment, come into play and could intensify.  Venus sextile Uranus in Aries has a quick and unexpected quality that may lead to original and alternative solutions or to unexpected changes in the area of love and partnership especially.  A change of relationship status will be news in some families and social circles, and it could well be the change you didn't see coming. Ideas and inspiration bursts forth on days like this.  Keep Monday and Tuesday forecasts in mind throughout your day and dealings.  At 9:55 pm ET, the Moon is void of course until 5:01 am. Void Moon time is good for relaxation, though it's also a time where time, things, or communications get lost.  Double check late night things, for example the locks on your doors, your alarm set or whether a message actually was received. Today's color is white.

 

Thursday: Capricorn Moon

Capricorn Moon time starts at 5:01 am ET. The lunar cycle is waning toward a Pisces New Moon on Tuesday, with a solar eclipse attached. What can you get rid of, cleanse, prepare or establish in order to enter a new cycle more easily.  Do physical work, managerial tasks and responsibilities, and if you are a leader, act in that capacity.  Moon and Neptune align for creative approaches to practical matters and tasks.  Practice your craft.  Today's color is green.

 

Friday: Moon conjunct Pluto

The Moon meets Pluto, squares Uranus and aligns in harmony with Jupiter in Virgo and the Pisces Sun.  It's a bit of everything. Ground in reality, be sensible, and welcome unfinished business for resolution. That unfinished business might even be with yourself. Can you face a situation with grace and a productive, healthy state of mind as Pluto encourages transformation? Uranus and the Moon do not see eye to eye today, and superiors experience this with employees or clients as do managers of different departments may clash or disagree on priorities.  Black is today's color.

 

Saturday: Mercury to Pisces, Mars to Sagittarius, Mercury square Mars

Capricorn Moon is only briefly void of course from 11:05 am to 11:22 am ET, then the Moon enters Aquarius.  Mars and Mercury both changes signs on this pivotal day. Mercury is creative and more malleable in Pisces. It may be easier to bring empathy and understanding to communications and interactions.  Mars is more upfront in Sagittarius, leading to bold moves between now and mid April (Mars will retrograde on April 17th and move back into Scorpio on May 27th). Mercury squares Mars at 12:43 am ET before either change signs.  This creates tension and affects communication, and since both are in fixed signs at the time, there's a stubborn, unyielding nature to the square.  If that happens for you, it may also point to something that will remain unresolved for a while and potentially be revisited in late spring, early summer.  If it seems like a stalemate has been reached, today it could be best to "let it be" for now.  Once Aquarius Moon arrives at 11:22 am ET, community affairs, group projects and other collaborations are favored.  Join with others for an event or gathering of some kind.  Refresh your energy by changing your surroundings, outlook, and by envisioning your ideals realized.  Be quiet enough to feel the shifts in the air as we approach a solar eclipse of beginnings and endings, both.  Make way for the new.  Today's color is yellow. 

 

Sunday: Aquarius Moon

Two shifts yesterday begin to settle in as a solar eclipse of emotion and healing approaches. Powerful energy leads to decisions and news, but much more will shift in the days ahead.  Make some peace with uncertainty if possible and do healthy, comforting things to burn excess worry, anxiety or physical energy.  Under these circumstances, I personally like to clean and organize.  Know what your best outlet is.  The Sun and Pluto speak of transformation through physical and emotional healing and also facing inner thoughts and unresolved experiences that live on in the body and mind. Creative change is possible. Believe that your actions have impact. The Sun also squares Saturn earlier and you may have to resist perceived or imposed limitations to get you where you want to be.  Today's color is blue. 

 

February 22nd to 28th, 2016

 

Monday: Full Moon in Virgo

At 6:24 am ET, Moon moves to Virgo and is full at 1:20 pm. Moon and Sun opposition creates Full Moon always, and the Sun is in Pisces.  Precursors and foreshadows of next month's eclipses are in the air, but this looks like a gentle Full Moon overall. There are no other significant planetary aspects, though Neptune is also opposite the Moon at 12:32 am on Tuesday. Virgo is one of the mutable signs, as is Pisces. These signs are characterized by change. Consider methods, feelings, and routines and how a change might benefit you or those around you.  The Moon lights up those places where a shift could be beneficial. This may come in the form of an offer, a health issue, or a relationship crossroads.  Blend heart and head, emotion and logic during this Full Moon. How can you release, purify, and as always, complete something during this Moon time? Today's color is white.

 

Pisces: relationship

Aries: routine, work and health

Taurus: children and enjoying life

Gemini: family and household

Cancer: communication and travel

Leo: money

Virgo: awakening, roles

Libra: envisioning, plans, health

Scorpio: friendships, networking

Sagittarius: career, roles

Capricorn: life experiences, long distance influences

Aquarius: finances, intuition

 

Tuesday: Moon conjunct Jupiter

The monthly meeting of Jupiter and the Moon in Virgo occurs as Neptune, Saturn and Pluto also weigh in.  Growth and abundance are themes. Count your blessings and invite more into your life. It's natural to contemplate and review your philosophy of life and how you're living it now.  Other people's expectations may be taken into consideration or prompt some deep thinking and soul searching.  Doing is favored over thinking or just conversing though. Make or build, clean and organize.  The state of your environment often speaks to the state of your mind and life. Look around and act accordingly. Create some new energy for yourself as you finish a cycle or get some closure. Today's color is navy blue.

 

Wednesday: Moon sextile Mars

The Moon is in Virgo until 5:41 pm and void of course from 9:22 am until then. During Virgo Moon, tie up loose ends, get physical exercise or work done, and make peace with residual emotions from Full Moon time. Void Moon hours aren't best for significant spending or decisions, but for routine tasks, today is fine. If you're doing financial work or writing, edit tonight or tomorrow since  mistakes and lack of clear thinking are more likely today.  The Moon and Mars align and perfectionistic tendencies come up and could even hold you back.  Brainstorm, give yourself some flexibility, and refine or perfect on another day.  Libra Moon is social this evening.  Today's color is lavender.

 

Thursday: Mercury sextile Saturn

In contrast to yesterday, this is a decision making day. Libra Moon in harmony with Venus encourages fairness and balance as well as objective perspective.  Mercury and Saturn align in Aquarius/ Sagittarius for forward thinking, vision, and the big picture.  Take a significant step. Today's color is turquoise.

 

Friday: Void of course Moon

A long void of course Moon in Libra starts at 6:18 am ET. The Moon is contacted by 4 planets with contrasting influences before that time. Mixed feelings and uncertainty could dominate the day, but that's okay since it's not prime time to sign off on or act quickly on something.  Mercury aligns with Uranus at 6:02 pm and this can create feelings of urgency and quick need to respond. Yet if it's not an emergency, sleep on it instead.  Be careful of arguments that could erupt without warning.  The Moon is void of course all night until 6:26 am. It's a good time to keep your wits about you and be smart as well as cautious.  Today's color is maroon.

 

Saturday: Scorpio Moon

Scorpio Moon comes at 6:26 am and does not aspect other planets today. Take care of personal business. Be loyal in relationships. Avoid secrets that could harm you or someone else.  If you feel like keeping to yourself today, do that. However, it's not meant to be a stressful day. You could decide on something that wasn't quite ready to be acted on yesterday. Scorpio is a fixed sign, so do it like you mean it.  There's little tolerance for wishy washy maybes. Today's color is red.

 

Sunday: Sun conjunct Neptune

This is a water sign Sunday with Scorpio Moon and Sun/Neptune in Pisces ruling the day. Today is full of harmonious aspects.  There's an ease and flow present.  Scorpio Moon balances any tendency to be too easygoing, as in being a pushover. Keep your boundaries while enjoying just the right amount of social interaction.  Avoid anything gossipy or underhanded.  Be creative! Today's color is blue.

February 15th to 21st, 2016

Monday: 2nd Quarter Moon in Taurus to Gemini Moon

Midway between New and Full, the Moon moves to Gemini at 9:35 am ET (void of course 5:54 to 9:35 am ET).  The Moon aligns with Venus as she touches the final degrees of Capricorn. A sensible, shared decision gives happiness or satisfaction today. Consider what creates security and strength in relationship as you move forward.  Gemini Moon trine to Mercury, just hours later, leads to brainstorming ideas, a way with words, and productive writing or study time.  It's also a good day for fun and socializing. Today's color is yellow.

 

Tuesday: Gemini Moon, Venus to Aquarius

Venus skips into Aquarius, following Mercury's sign change on Saturday and last week's New Moon in the water bearer's sign. Aquarius is an air sign (that water bearer is somewhat misleading), an intellectual, and the sign of invention and friendship. The Moon is in Gemini, also in the air element. Neptune, planet of fantasy, and Saturn, planet of realism, have opposing effects on the Moon. Confusion or inability to decide or act effectively could be the result. It feels like the sort of day where you can't please everyone, or more than one party.  Saturn provokes a sense of obligation while Neptune urges escape.  Uranus chimes in from Aries and some will act impulsively and spur of the moment. Jupiter squares the Moon reminding us of the healthiest courses of action. But there's tension. Today is full of mixed influences. Think before you speak and act. What feels good in the moment may not seem like the best idea tomorrow. Venus moves to Aquarius for objective perspective on relationship, socializing in groups, and joining others with a shared cause.  Today's color is blue.

 

Wednesday: Gemini to Cancer Moon

Gemini Moon is void of course from 11:37 am to 2:24 pm. Avoid a tempting impulse buy and wait until a bit later if you're signing off or making promises. Sun and Moon align optimistically. Cancer Moon arrives at 2:24 pm. Be loving and caring. Recognize who and what is dearest to you. Today's color is white.

 

Thursday: Cancer Moon

Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces, is across from Pluto in Capricorn and square to Uranus in Aries. This complex variety of aspects influences us individually. Some themes include escapism vs. facing reality and impulse to create. It's a good day to channel energy into art. Have a quiet, heartfelt conversation. Avoid anything harsh.  Recognize your own sensitivities and how you respond. Business should be conservative and sure.  Today's color is black.

 

Friday: Sun to Pisces, Cancer to Leo Moon

Pisces birthdays begin at 12:34 am ET, as the Sun changes signs. This is the final phase of winter. Cancer Moon sextile Jupiter in Virgo is harmonious around home and family matters and health. Plant seeds of things you hope to grow and encourage. Take care of your land, plants, children, pets and bank account. Mars aligns with the Moon accenting all water sign traits. That includes nurture but also emotional defensiveness or manipulation. Keep it on the positive side as much as possible. Consider whether a grudge is still worth holding onto. We may be very aware of our own triggers today. Try to bring out the best in each other and self.  Void of course Moon starts at 9:36 am until Leo Moon at 9:17 pm ET.  Full Moon warmup begins, for Monday's Virgo Moon. Tonight is a party and games night. Wear purple. 

 

Saturday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon is opposite both Venus and Mercury in Aquarius. The day is ruled by relationships and how we interact with each other. In both one on one relationships and in groups, willingness to compromise or see the other point of view helps foster harmony.  Leo and Aquarius, long term relationship is the focus of the weekend.  Figure out how to move plans forward.  Significant conversations and decisions will be made.  It's also meant to be a fun, social day.  Some will take sides and create divisiveness. Perhaps that can be avoided by knowing in advance.  Today's color is pink. 

 

Sunday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon is in harmony with Uranus and Saturn and square to Mars. These three planets all instigate in their own ways. So close to Full Moon, Monday at 1:20 pm, this creates sensitivity or boldness. Criticism is unlikely to be taken well. Games will be competitive and serious. Actions have long term effects, and it's not a good time to cross someone, be untrue or raise sensitive issues. Strong focus is an asset today. Show loyalty. Today's color is gold.

 

February 8th to 14th, 2016

Monday: Aquarius New Moon

This New Moon always signals Chinese New Year, and this week Tuesday marks Fat Tuesday and Wednesday, Lent begins in the Christian tradition. New Moon in Aquarius is at 9:39 am ET and the Moon moves void of course as Moon and Sun meet. Mars, Saturn, and Uranus contact the Moon prior. Mars forms a square from Scorpio, which is challenging and requires much effort to budge a situation or opinion. Getting the final word or a piece of necessary information could be quite a process. Be persistent, but not to the point of frustration. Know whether it's worth your energy or better to step back for a day.  The Moon is void of course until 3:31 am ET, Tuesday.  This makes a nice day off or at least minimize your schedule. Do some planning, try not to force things into place before their time.  Socialize and gather for a team effort. Today's color is white.

 

Tuesday: Pisces Moon conjunct Neptune

Moon is in Pisces from 3:31 am to Thursday 4:55 am. Show empathy and understanding today. Being creative and adaptable may be easier today.  Neptune and the Moon emphasize all Pisces traits including intuition and sensitivity.  Easy does it. Do something you enjoy. Be a good listener. Today's color is light blue.

 

Wednesday: Pisces Moon, Venus trine Jupiter

The heavens are full of activity today. Pisces Moon engages with several planets including Venus and Jupiter. Those two are in sweet harmony, in Virgo and Capricorn. The Moon also forms a trine with Mercury in Capricorn. Relationships benefit. It's a good day to reach a solid agreement you can abide by. There's a blend of feeling and doing that can be described as following the heart or acting from the heart.  Venus and Jupiter are in versatile and practical earth signs.  Back up your words and emotions with positive action.  Be in harmony, be in love. Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer, Pisces and Taurus may feel special connection to and emphasis on what happens today. Void of course Moon begins at 11:25 pm ET.  Today's color is green. 

 

Thursday: Aries Moon

At 4:55 am ET, the Moon shifts to fiery Aries.  In this New Moon week, this is a great day to take initiative and get something in motion. There are no planetary aspects.  Get a fresh start, drum up your confidence and drive.  Take advantage of enthusiasm and energy to build, to work on relationships, and to clear the air and your space.  Even more complex situations are up for progress today. Wear red. 

 

Friday: Aries Moon

Aries Moon is busy with many connections today. Recurring patterns surface. The Moon and Venus square and Moon and Mercury square hours later, on Saturday morning. This indicates things to be worked through and likely involves partnership, communication, and balance of power. If you're negotiating, be thoughtful and clear. Overly dominant moves will create resistance.  Where one prefers the traditional and the other something more innovative, take time to understand. Avoid being impulsive or pushy.  Orange is today's color. 

 

Saturday: Mercury to Aquarius

Mercury spends final hours in Capricorn, squares the Aries Moon, and cruises to Aquarius at 5:43 pm ET. Mercury moves on and will leave many with a sense of accomplishment through organization and strong efforts.  Mars and Jupiter align for intense focus and action around health, service to others, growth of business, and other hands on projects.  It's a good time to train, build, and offer your talents to benefit the greater good.  From 5:32 am to 6:36 pm the Moon is void of course. Taurus Moon brings a stable feeling, increases persistence, and makes us appreciate the comforts we have. Today's color is yellow.

 

Sunday: Valentine's Day, Taurus Moon

Taurus is the sensualist of the zodiac, and Valentine's Day falls on Taurus Moon this year.  Whether loving or healing, today the power of touch is accentuated.  Moon aligns with Pluto and Jupiter for all sorts of release, transformation and expansion. Apply that to self, relationships, business or other priorities.  The Moon does oppose Mars in Scorpio bringing out stubborn nature in some cases. Do not fight or argue today. No one will win. Avoid anger. Expect passion in all it's forms. Today's color is pink.

February 1st to 7th, 2016

Monday: Scorpio Moon

Actively focus energy on a priority matter. Scorpio Moon meets Mars and the tendency to be aggressive is there, so rather than act in anger or impatience, channel your inner warrior for a good or personal cause.  The Moon aligns with Pluto which may help if you're looking for an answer, researching or soul searching.  Mercury and Jupiter also combine forces with Scorpio Moon, intensifying communications, the will to serve others, and to improve physical and mental health. Take some steps to improve life in general, keep your heart in the right place, and avoid anything with ulterior motive or excessive need to control. Void of course Moon breaks the spell at 7:35 pm. If you're wound up and work hard all day, use this time to relax. Today's color is red.

 

Tuesday: Imbolc, Groundhog Day, Sagittarius Moon

Imbolc is an ancient "holiday" welcoming back daylight. Light things up today or tonight, with candles, lanterns, or your favorite strings of bulbs. The Moon starts void of course and moves officially to Sagittarius at 10:50 am ET. The Moon aspects no other heavenly bodies. It's a beautiful day for freedom, travels, and enjoyable learning experiences.  Immerse yourself in something you love. Do something to make today a bit more special and out of the ordinary. Today's color is yellow.

 

Wednesday: Mars sextile Pluto, Sun sextile Saturn

The Moon and Saturn meet as Saturn aligns with the Aquarius Sun.  Agreements of a serious nature are featured. Commit to school, a trip abroad or your own freedom. Break a habit or pattern by having a multi-faceted, versatile plan. Contracts and agreements lean more toward dissolving than creating partnerships and can include divorce, separation of assets or division of a company.  Mars and Pluto activate things that have been held back and are now ready to become public, come to the surface and be dealt with rather than hidden or ignored.  Things may settle quickly and in unusual ways as the Moon and Uranus align. Wear turquoise.

 

Thursday: Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon

The Moon is void of course in Sag from 5:04 am to 7:44 pm. Moon squares Jupiter in Virgo as void time begins.  Health, eduction, travel and service to others are some of the areas charged by this square. Disagreements and prompts to settle and reach decisions are likely.  Sorting out values and trying to come to consensus with another person or party is part of the process. Virgo and Sagittarius, hosting the Moon and Jupiter, are very different in nature and ways of operating in the world. However, both are mutable signs, so build in some flexibility to make agreement more appealing. Room for revision helps you forward a plan. Capricorn Moon arrives at 7:44 pm. It's a good night for organizing information or space and for studies as well. Today's color is green.

 

Friday: Capricorn Moon, Venus conjunct Pluto

It's a very Capricorn day as the Moon travels the same sign Venus and Pluto align in.  The Moon harmonizes with Neptune in Pisces. Be realistic, but don't give up your dream or ideal too easily.  Venus, planet of love, is in practical Capricorn. Warm someone up to an idea. Stir emotions that have been repressed out of fear. Be vulnerable and strong in combination.  For example, express your intentions or feelings in order to release the energy it requires to hold them in. Then let go of the outcome and know that you will be okay no matter how you're received.  Pluto has the power to transform, and today this influences our personal relationships and desires.  Affection may go a long way. Reassure someone who may fear that you're leaving or no longer care. This includes lovers, family and friends.  Work with the undercurrents. Activate intuition, and act. Moon and Neptune provide possibilities for romance and/or managing life better together, and appreciation for complementary styles and contributions. Team up with someone who brings a different trait or skill to your project or environment.  Beautify and organize space to function better. Spring clean early, before Monday's fresh New Moon time. Today's color is pink.

 

In Maine, join me for Yoga Nidra guided meditation in West Falmouth at Greener Postures 6-7 pm. This restorative, healing, energizing practice requires no experience. The room may fill quickly so come early. Drop in rate or class pass accepted.

 

Saturday: Capricorn Moon, Mercury trine Jupiter, Sun sextile Uranus

This looks like a varied and eventful day.  Communication holds great importance .Be clear and go for the very best outcomes. Think of the whole picture, of how others are influenced, and of how to maximize your gifts and skills.  Sun and Uranus combine for original ideas and solutions, quick thinking, and awakenings.  With too many aspects to individually name and describe here, anticipate possibilities and work with what has great potential. Be present with what you have for resources and support while seeing beyond the here and now. What can you do today, that may seem simple, that influences your tomorrow and the experience of others greatly? That is today's mission. Today's color is black.

 

 

Sunday: Sun square Mars, Venus sextile Mars, Aquarius Moon

Mars, the warrior planet, has strong influence today. The Sun square Mars features things we're stubbornly attached to, and makes agreement difficult.  Venus, planet of love, in Capricorn, softens the picture, brings in a realistic attitude, and aims for harmony, chemistry and compatibility. Romantic and long term relationships will probably fare better than business, political, or other interactions as a result.  Chemistry is strong in the Scorpio, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer realms, and new love is very pleasurable and intense.  Disagreements of personal nature, between rivals for example, will be strong and hard to work through.  Debates are not encouraged today. If you're willing to sort something out, and you go in with the intent to be flexible and to hear someone out, you could settle a tough dispute. Attitude will be everything. The Moon is in Aquarius, and on this day prior to New Moon, define your vision and next potential move. Clear clutter and obstacles. Today's color is blue.

 

As far as the big game Sunday, both team cities are Scorpios and during this Aquarius time, both would be in the spotlight! Denver has Capricorn Moon and there are many Capricorn influences at work the past few days.  It's a tough one to predict, but whether or not Denver wins, the impact of this Super game appears to positively influence Denver beyond this day. Perhaps the underdog will be victorious.

January 25th to 31st, 2016

Monday: Mercury Direct

The Moon is void of course in Leo, just past Full. Keep your schedule and conversations simple. Save significant decisions for tomorrow. Be creative and playful. Have a sense of humor and count your blessings.  Kids may exhibit Full Moon "hangover" and need more freedom or quiet time today. Structure won't be easy to achieve while the Moon is void of course.  Explore, play games, do routine tasks like housecleaning and let your mind wander. Tune into your calendar and clock. It's easy to miss appointments on days like this. Mercury is direct at 4:50 pm ET. The Moon shifts to Virgo at 10:46 pm. Today's color is navy blue.

 

Tuesday: Virgo Moon

The practical aspects of relationship are one thing to focus on as the Moon and Venus align in earth signs.  Harmonize by organizing and managing finances, household responsibilities and career demands with grace.  Mars aligns with the Moon too. Act with passion and drive.  Neptune can add romance or illusion to this day. Make sure expectations are realistic and you're seeing and understanding things clearly. Today's color is pink. 

 

Wednesday: Virgo Moon conjunct Jupiter

Virgo Moon connects with a handful of planets for varied perspective and experience today. The strongest is the conjunction with Jupiter. Focus on health, wealth, purification and studies.  Rise to a challenge. Prepare for a test. Expand on your ideas and use versatile thinking. Void of course Moon begins at 7:11 pm ET and ends at 9:59 am on Thursday.  Brown is today's color. 

 

Thursday: Libra Moon square Venus

Libra Moon time starts at 9:59 am ET, and prior to that the Moon is void of course. Double check on early morning things, like schedules, belongings and facts. Venus, Libra's ruling planet, squares the Libra Moon. Work through partnership disagreements or decisions. Effort is required. Fair decisions are favored if you can cut through the clutter.  Settle a dispute. Arrive at a mutual conclusion even where no disagreement is involved.  Today's color is blue.

 

Friday: Libra Moon

Find order in what might seem like chaos. Clear out what's unnecessary. Give your attention to what can be productive. Skip debates that keep circling back and never resolve.  Move on to something that's worth your energy.  Saturn and the Sun align with the Moon and that can help with decisiveness.  Mercury, Pluto and Uranus square or oppose the Moon. At minimum these aspects bring up mixed feelings. Keep your sanity and balance today. Void of course Moon begins at 8:34 pm after the Uranus opposition. Instability and craziness can take over with these conditions.  Take care of yourself and each other. See the Mercury/Pluto forecast ahead since it may affect your day and night. Today's color is lavender. 

 

Saturday: Mercury conjunct Pluto, Venus sextile Neptune

Just over a week ago, Mercury retrograde met Pluto. Today this conjunction repeats with Mercury direct. Understand a lesson and awaken to a reality, primarily about yourself, your shadow aspect, your communication style, or some news you've recently heard.  The Moon is void of course. Keep things simple. There's a spiritual, soulful aspect at work (all the time) that you may recognize more than usual. Venus and Neptune align for romance and for blending practical and whimsical traits.  Scorpio Moon arrives at 10:50 pm ET, and more focus and attention kick in.  Today's color is black.

 

Sunday: Scorpio Moon, Mercury square Uranus

Avoid irrational arguments and ways of thinking today. Question or fight the urge to act or speak impulsively.  It's not a good day to invite trouble, confrontation or jealous competition. Act consciously, take care of yourself and others, stay out of negative thinking, and engage in something healing or satisfying. Focusing on one thing is favored during Scorpio Moon. Organize and accomplish. Or spend your time on healthy and spiritual pursuits.  Today's color is indigo blue.

January 18th to 24th, 2016

Monday: Taurus Moon, Venus square Jupiter, Mars trine Neptune

Taurus Moon aligns with Mercury retrograde, Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. The earth sign energy is strong and encouraging for productivity and problem solving even with Mercury retrograde. Take another pass at something you haven't quite worked out before. An alternative method or variable could be just what's needed. Venus and Jupiter challenge philosophy around growth and freedom within relationship. Sort through what's holding you back from fully enjoying your love and partnership life. Is there something that makes you run rather than fully engage? Mars and Neptune provide creative fuel today. Transform emotion into art. Enjoy music, movement, dance, design and color today. Wear light blue.

 

Tuesday: Taurus to Gemini Moon

From 1:50 to 4:13 am the Moon is void of course, then transitions to Gemini. Moon and Sun are in harmony at 1:50 for ease and feelings of comfort and confidence.  Gemini Moon squares Neptune at 6:09 pm. Both are in mutable signs and have elements of duplicity and duality. Today make sure people and situations are what they appear to be before entering agreements or being trustful. Be playful with words. Work around a mental or writer's block by trying something entirely different. Do this without committing-write in pencil, so to speak.  Gemini Moon rules our relationships with brothers and sisters.  Today's color is yellow.

 

Wednesday: Sun in Aquarius, Mercury retrograde square Uranus

The Sun moves to Aquarius at 10:27 am. Hours prior, Saturn opposes the Gemini Moon and goes on to align with Uranus at 9:24 am. This is a changeable day with unpredictable aspects if you're negotiating or immersed in a situation of uncertainty.  Honesty and it's shadow side are at play.  Gemini and Sagittarius, hosting Moon and Saturn, are sometimes challenging signs for mediating and coming to honest conclusions. One has duplicity, one is bold, both can be insensitive when conflicts arise.  Mercury is retrograde, and that's another reason to go easy on each other, avoid harsh statements or criticism.  People may try to overpower each other, especially with words, today. Avoid burning a bridge you can't easily repair.  The Moon squares Jupiter and disagreements about how to pursue goals and expansion is one symptom. Consider how to adapt, compromise, and also how much truth is being revealed.  If you're not certain, hold off. Today's color is turquoise.

 

Thursday: Gemini to Cancer Moon

Full Moon is ahead on Saturday and the tide is coming in! From 3:01 to 8:28 am ET the Moon is void of course in Gemini. If you begin the day during these hours, know that it may be a forgetful, spacey morning.  The Moon and Venus oppose at 3:01 am and relationship disagreements could be one effect, or you might just feel out of sorts overnight into morning. Cancer Moon is the sign of emotions, so moodiness could easily prevail. The Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces for acting with empathy and sensitivity.  Artistic ventures are favored. Be careful with financial dealings.  Tune into other people's feelings, body language, and messages.  Today's color is white.

 

Friday: Mercury conjunct Pluto, Cancer Moon

Mercury retrograde meeting Pluto unearths information, puzzle pieces and can lead to more self awareness. Be on the lookout as subtle things emerge. There's an air of secretiveness and mystery.  Someone may divulge private feelings or news. Emotions stir for possible catharsis.  Cancer Moon opposes Mercury and Pluto, intensifying effects. There are other Moon aspects, but the oppositions have the most power on this day before Full Moon. Today's color is black.

 

Saturday:  Full Moon in Leo

Leo is the sign of creativity and performances, children and youthfulness. Full Moon in Leo has no direct aspects with other planets today. On Sunday, the Moon will square Mars in Scorpio. Both loyalty and stubbornness activate with that square. We'll not give up or give in easily. Today starts with Cancer Moon void of course 1:21 am to 2:21 pm ET. Health is a focus as is care and nurturing as the Moon and Jupiter align. Leo Moon, Full at 8:46 pm ET, easily leads to a party, a reason to dress up, meet friends and attend events.  Games and performances will be spirited and filled with personality. Give attention to children, express thanks for gifts and friendships, honor promises and vows.  This Full Moon can be quite delightful, glamorous and fun.  Gold is today's color.

 

Sunday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon forms two trines today. Saturn and Uranus, so different in nature, align with the Full Moon. Competition heats up as does Full Moon news. Full Moons lead to completions generally. Saturn in Sagittarius relates to serious life decisions, like where to attend college or send children to school for example. Uranus has a wild streak in Aries. Try not to move too impulsively during this Full Moon. Mercury will be direct Monday and conditions may be better for some announcements, scheduling and major purchases.  Today's color is purple.

January 11th to 17th, 2016

Monday: Aquarius Moon

Aquarius Moon forms 3 sextiles, harmonious angles, with Saturn and Venus in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries. Spontaneous, original thinking is one result.  Be inspired, inspire others, listen to and receive advice without feeling you have to act on it right away.  Travel and relationship go well together. Mercury is retrograde so it's best to have flexibility and ability to change your route or your mind throughout the day.  Void of course Moon starts at 8:09 pm ET and lasts about 21 hours. Do today rather than put off until tomorrow. Today's color is light blue.

 

Tuesday: Venus sextile Saturn

Yesterday's aspects flow into this void of course Moon time which lasts until 6:53 pm ET. Venus and Uranus form a sextile in Sagittarius/Aries. All relationship and travel experiences are heightened. Whatever you are experiencing in these areas is accented and heated with this action in fire signs.  Enthusiasm about new love or adventure as well as unexpected eventfulness, welcome or unwelcome, are some effects.  It'll be easy to lose track of time or be led down another road or off course today. Lack of focus is likely.  Keep to routines unless you're enjoying a wild adventure.  Take a few safety precautions whatever you're up to. Pisces Moon 6:53 pm on for understanding and sensitivity. Today's color is light green.

 

Wednesday: Pisces Moon, Sun trine Jupiter

Pisces Moon interacts with several planets today. This may help you be creative or create a need to adapt and go with the flow. Mainly, stay realistic rather than allow Neptune to cloud your better judgment.  The Sun trine Jupiter in Capricorn/Virgo relates to health and abundance. Good news, blessings, opportunities, and celebration of accomplishments come with this alignment.  Stay actively involved in health and career goals.  Seek wise advice and leadership where it's needed.  Recognize others for their contributions and be grateful.  Today's color is green.

 

Thursday: Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde, Mercury trine Jupiter

Mercury exerts much influence with a trine to Jupiter in Virgo and a meeting with Sun in Capricorn. This continuation of the Sun trine Jupiter influence adds an element of communication. Good news may be shared, retroactive recognitions given, and beneficial reconnections happen on purpose or by chance. Earth sign energy rules, so act, do, heal, and stay grounded while leaving room for revisions and new information to come since Mercury is retrograde until the 25th.  Return to an activity or place that was once a favorite.  It's an excellent time for temporary solutions and experimenting safely. Void of course Pisces Moon begins at 11:31 am, and Aries Moon arrives at 9:48 pm  Today's color is yellow.

 

Friday: Moon trine Saturn

Aries Moon aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius. Consider how to realize your dreams. What can you do or who can you go to for help and advice around education, global experiences or opportunities to expand and connect on a broader level? It's true that Mercury is retrograde, but this doesn't have to be something you act on overnight. Get serious about something you're always talking or daydreaming about. Reach out for information you can use soon. People will be enthusiastic and sound committed to new options today. Wear red.

 

Saturday: Aries Moon

There's a bit of everything as the Moon contacts a handful of planets and the Sun. Multi-tasking, feeling distracted or enjoying variety are all good possibilities.  Watch words that could be delivered too harshly during Mercury's square with the Aries Moon. Authority and the question of who's really in charge come up now. Uranus brings a quickness to events and news of the day. Do move and act with care especially after 6:46 pm when the Moon moves void of course until 12:48 am ET Sunday. Today's color is orange.

 

Sunday: Taurus Moon

The Moon is in Taurus from 12:48 am ET until Tuesday at 4:13 am ET.  As the Moon opposes Mars in Scorpio, stubborn confrontations become more likely. Feeling strongly does not have to mean butting heads. Can you hold onto your ideals and opinions without sharing while Mercury is retrograde? If not, because sometimes time is of the essence, can you at least stay out of a pointless debate? Say your peace and let go of the result. Make, do, create and enjoy the powers of your 5 senses. Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces. Today's color is pink.

January 4th to 10th, 2016


Mercury in Aquarius stimulates scientific thinking, vision for the future & groups on a mission. I think of Aquarius as the absolute borderline of introvert processing information, seeing the world intellectually, & extrovert connecting with like minds, attracting people around a cause, an invention, creation of music (air), or literature. Mercury relates to technology & innovation while in Aquarius. For a few days Mercury is direct, then retrograde on Tuesday, & back into Capricorn Friday. The retrograde, when Mercury appears to be moving backwards from our perspective here on earth, lasts until January 25th & reenters Aquarius February 13th to March 5th. Collaborative ventures & group projects slow down & are up for revisions. Groups may go through leadership shake ups & changes in mission statement. The build of Mercury's retrograde is in Capricorn, sign of organizations & order. The larger groups you belong to, administrations, corporations, & even non profit or loosely organized groups are directly involved in the approaching retrograde. Do you need to step up to a leadership role? Does the system need to change in order to function better? Are the knowledgable people, the trainers & visionaries, in place? Organizations & systems need support this month. Mercury, planet of communication & transportation, impacts personal plans too. Open your options to routine & schedule changes. Experiment & explore this month, setting new things in place after January 25th.



Monday: Scorpio Moon


The waning Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces, Pluto and the Sun in Capricorn.  Put energy into building and organizing.  A mix of water and earth, feeling and sensing, creativity and constructiveness, helps with balance. Channel emotion into tangible products from reorganizing the house or workplace to designing, writing or other art.  Interpersonal matters will likely be met with a detached, unemotional response. Try not to sink into passive manipulation or aggression which could be a tendency. It's a good day to deal with private, personal matters effectively.  Wear black.


Tuesday: Mercury retrograde, Void of course Moon


The conditions lean toward confusing, so balance that with simplicity.  Mercury retro begins at 8:06 am ET, 5:06 am Pacific.  Scorpio Moon is void of course, a transition time, from 12:47 pm on (to 1:56 am Wednesday.) Mercury squares Mars, layering potential aggression or anger with the uncertain nature of the day. Mars tends to be more passive in Libra, but legal matters and partnership disagreements could have strong undercurrents including deception and undermining.  The Sun meets Pluto for disclosures and revelations. News and information could be especially dramatic. Avoid the gossip that follows, remembering it's better to say less while Mercury retraces his path. Venus squares Neptune bringing up questions of realism versus sentimentality.  In some cases, if you've overly romanticized a person or situation, you'll snap out of it quickly and perhaps unpleasantly. There's a lot in the works today, and it will be obvious that things have been building and moving under the surface even if you were unaware.  Instincts and discretion are traits to live by.  Today's color is purple.


Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon


At 1:56 am the Moon moves to Sagittarius and forms a sextile to Mercury retrograde in Aquarius. This facilitates connections with friends, colleagues and people abroad or across country. Moon and Venus meet on this appealing travel day.  Make some peace with your relationship status, and enjoy freedom within the structure of a relationship or the open space of single life.  Pursue an interest. Feel the pull to a book, a training, or a group that stimulates your mind and satisfies the desire for new or renewed interests. Today's color is light blue.


Thursday: Moon conjunct Saturn, Sun square Uranus


Uranus instigates revolutions, awakenings, and surprises.  Planet of originality and rebellion aligns with the Moon and squares the Sun today. Uranus is immature in Aries, often too fiery or destructive, though in Aries this planet also has the power to change things radically in what seems like the blink of an eye.  Today the Sun at odds with Uranus is a battle between traditional and alternative or radical. Power struggles are one result.  It's a tough square to reconcile since these signs are so different, Capricorn like the elder and the authority, ruled by Saturn, and Aries like the teenager or child, ruled by Mars.  Most likely it's best to chill out, stop the tug of war, and resume this discussion at another time.  The Moon and Uranus are mutually supportive, with a trine today, so we may lean toward impulsive and emotionally reactive. While Mercury is retrograde, especially, this could lead to regrets.  Saturn meets the Moon with a cautionary message, to act maturely even if you're feeling fiery.  Void of course Moon starts at 9:44 pm ET, and Jupiter begins a retrograde in Virgo at 11:40 pm ET. Jupiter is Sagittarius's planet and the retrograde time may be most relevant as it coincides with Mercury retrograde and is a time to reevaluate honesty and integrity as well as education and global pursuits.  Jupiter is retrograde half the time so you may not notice the effects specifically so much as philosophically. It's another layer of the retrograde experience of this month, generally.  Today's color is turquoise. 


Friday: Mercury retrograde in Capricorn


At 10:07 am ET, the Moon transitions to Capricorn, sign of tomorrow's New Moon. Mercury backs into Capricorn for the remainder of the month, impacting plans, transportation, systems, organization, leadership, and our ways with words (to name a few things!). You could find yourself retracing recent steps and changing your mind.  Venus and Saturn meet in Sagittarius. This is a very odd conjunction in that Venus is beauty and love, Saturn is wisdom and challenge, and Sagittarius is a sign of freedom and truths.  One anticipated effect is honest talk about relationships and about expansion and travel plans. Just keep in mind Mercury is retrograde and it's not the most reliable time to decide or even communicate well. Keep plans and schedules flexible and minimal. Find some freedom to wander, explore or reconnect with friends.  Rethink things, even if you're saving decisions for a more optimal time. Options are good. Today's color is green.


Saturday: New Moon in Capricorn


It's always interesting when New Moon falls during Mercury retrograde. A push, pull, forward, back motion is created.  If you're not sure what to do during the retrograde, do less, take care of simple things, and avoid the major announcement or decision. Let things pend, quietly process, and prepare with review and revision of goals or projects.  The Moon meets Pluto, planet related to the subconscious and innate.  Consider how to move past anxiety, fear, and any past that haunts you or a pattern you haven't broken yet.  New Moon is at 8:31 pm ET. Reorganize and clean, but make sure you remember your own system! Write ideas down and make lists.  White is today's color.


Sunday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon

 

Capricorn Moon starts the day. New Moon energy is supported by Jupiter in Virgo and Mercury in Capricorn, both retrograde.  See the advantage and possibility of revisiting things for more consideration or simply for pleasure.  Interesting and expected or surprise reunions happen. You might just run into someone you haven't seen in a long time.  Take care of easy tasks and to do lists. Feel productive without pushing. Create abundance.  From 12:39 to 3:23 pm the Moon is void of course, moving to Aquarius.  The Moon squares Mars in Scorpio tonight, 10:31 pm ET. You can't force square pegs into round openings. That is the lesson and the key to conflicts tonight. Going your own way is preferable into coercing or trying too hard.  Wear silver.

December 28th, 2015 to January 3rd, 2016

Monday: Leo Moon


Leo Moon in harmony with Saturn aims for long term decisions and sensible action. Saturn relates to elders, health, and responsibilities and while in Sagittarius emphasizes education, global business, and travel plans too. Uranus in harmony with the Moon is spontaneous, quick and sometimes alarming.  Enjoy last minute plans. Respond to unplanned situations with a deep breath and moment of thought. Use your wits and let nothing get too out of hand. Today's color is gold.


Tuesday: Leo to Virgo Moon


From 12:38 to 1:56 pm ET, the Moon is void of course in Leo. Before 12:38 the Moon is in harmony with Mars and Mercury squares Mars. Matters of fairness are stirred up for discussion. Keep in mind that Mercury is practical and values order and acting on plans while in Capricorn. It's a delicate balance if you're sorting something out with another party, partner, or colleague. An extra dose of logical thinking and list of pros and cons can help move things along.  Virgo Moon arrives at 1:56 pm and has no aspects to planets today. The Sun aligns with Neptune and Virgo Moon moves across from Neptune by morning. Neptune influences romantic thinking, creativity and imagination while the Capricorn Sun and Virgo Moon ground us and have a more sensible vibe.  This is a good blend of heart and hands for making, doing and nurturing.  Artistically these aspects may help you get something from your imagination to the page, canvas or other media.  Today's color is navy blue. 


Wednesday: Venus in Sagittarius


Virgo Moon aligns with Pluto and the Sun in Capricorn and is favorable for organizing, taking care of the to-do list, and acting rationally in the face of fears, self doubt or other emotions.  Be real and clear with yourself before dealing with others or the outside world. The Moon squares Saturn and opposes Neptune.  Again, don't get lost in tales of what might be or make excuses.  Live in the moment and be rational in every way.  Venus moves to Sagittarius, for a one month stay, at 2:16 am ET. In Sagittarius, the planet of love is adventurous and flirtatious. Travel has a stronger pull.  Sagittarius is favored generally while Gemini is favored in love and Pisces for career plans and publicity.  Today's color is brown. 


Thursday: Moon conjunct Jupiter


The Moon meets Jupiter, the planet that acted with Mercury and Venus during last week's Full Moon. Vibes from agreements, relationships,  reunions and hopeful discussions ring in the air.  Positive outcomes and closure are favored.  Jupiter is planet of blessings, pleasures, learning, travels and health. Be aware of your own good fortune and abundance.  Today's color is indigo.


Friday: Happy 2016! Mercury in Aquarius


Mercury moves to Aquarius and is preparing for retrograde. The path of Mercury today is one that will be retraced quickly.  Mull things over and don't feel pressured to act. Minds will change, as will systems during the weeks just ahead.  2016 begins with the Moon moving to Libra, sign of justice and partnerships, at 1:41 am ET after a short void of course time. The Moon aligns with Mercury at 12:33 am, beginning the voc hour.  Caution during that period 12:33 to 1:41 when the world is in varying degrees of celebrating the new year. Especially in the USA, stay grounded and aware, travel carefully and keep track of your belongings.  Libra Moon favors duos, couples, best friends, and partnering up to get things done or have some fun.  Today's color is pink.


Saturday: Libra Moon


Planetary actions are similar to last Saturday, the 26th, when the Moon was in cardinal Cancer, post Full Moon.  Libra is also a cardinal sign, as is Aries and Capricorn. These signs host the major activity today.  Tests and challenges come up, whether emotional or intellectual. Our ability to remain calm, rational and non judgmental comes into play and should be helpful as we navigate uncertainty, power struggles, and unexpected situations.  Moon and Saturn are in harmony so following protocol, traditions or rules is important. Void of course from Moon 11:23 am ET on. Today's color is blue.


Sunday: Scorpio Moon, Mars in Scorpio


The Moon shifts to Scorpio at 2:36 pm ET and is void until then. Avoid shopping, sharing announcements and news (unless you want it to be skimmed over and forgotten easily), and significant decisions.  Commit after 2:36 pm for long term results.  Mars storms into Scorpio at 9:32 am, a place where Mars exerts his power.  Take into consideration that vengeance and anger are traits of Mars in Scorpio. Today the Moon and Mars meet and Moon squares Mercury in Aquarius. This looks like a stubborn day where emotional situations could be hard to deal with.  If you need to put all your focus on one thing and get a great deal accomplished, this maybe your day.  Wear dark reds, like maroon, today.

December 21st to 27th, 2015

Monday: Winter Solstice, Taurus Moon


Today's color is green for the earth energy of Taurus Moon aligned with both Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. Zone in on what's most valuable and pressing today. Working around the house and with the hands is favored as is business done conservatively and with thoughtfulness.  The Sun moves to Capricorn at 11:49 pm ET. Here in the northeast there's actually one minute more of daylight between sunrise and sunset today.  


Tuesday: Taurus to Gemini Moon


Full Moon warmup begins for Christmas morning at 6:12 em ET in Cancer, sign of family and home.  Home is a focus of the entire week, whether you're traveling under the upcoming Gemini Moon, for commuters, or preparing for the holiday at your house.  From 9:26 am ET until 9:31 pm the Taurus Moon is void of course which is not so good for major purchases. Save all receipts. Do what's necessary or relaxing during these hours. Catch up on simple tasks. It's a great time to wrap presents, exercise or do food shopping.  Ease relationship strain, with Venus across from the Moon, with good conversations. Mercury aligns with the Moon for talks and travels.  Today's color is pink.


Wednesday: Gemini Moon


Gemini Moon opposes Saturn, bringing a serious tone to business including negotiations within the family.  Full Moon warms up, adding pressure to make decisions and complete projects.  Some flexibility is called for though it may not be easy to find.  The Moon squares Neptune and could add to feelings of distraction or uncertainty.  Don't rely too much on one person, one particular outcome or a fixed way of doing things. Rigid expectations are likely to cause frustration. Today's color is blue.


Thursday: Gemini Moon, Venus sextile Jupiter


Gemini Moon is void of course at 3:04 pm to 12:27 am Friday. Finish up before 3 pm, whatever it is you have to accomplish. The relax into Full Moon of family and home. Reunions are favored and the Gemini Moon relates to your brothers and sisters. Get back in touch as Venus and Jupiter help create good feelings, generosity, and happiness.  There are elements of surprise today as well. Openness and adaptability are key traits as you move into Full Moon. Family business comes to closure or settles.  Keep any disagreements short and to the point. Minimize drama. It can be done with this lovely Venus/Jupiter alignment.  Today's color is white.


Friday: Cancer Full Moon


Today's color is pale blue as the Full Moon peaks at 6:12 am ET.  Roots and feelings of comfort and grounding are very important. Help create that sense of acceptance and security for those who surround you.  Cancer Moon aligns with Neptune for romance and may help us skim over other people's flaws and see the best in them. Mercury aligns with the Moon easing communication in families and inspiring plans and performances.  Enjoy each others' company without questions or pressures.  The aspects favor a very harmonious Full Moon Christmas.  


Saturday: Cancer Moon


As the Moon glides through Cancer, it's not as smooth a journey today. Squares challenge us. Keep the frustration level low.  Avoid topics that lead to arguments. Negotiate only the simplest of things. Remember it's still Full Moon time and Cancer is a very sensitive, emotional, and defensive sign for a Full Moon. Ride the beautiful waves of reunions and celebrations Venus, Jupiter and Mercury helped create. Let little things go and save big issues for another day. From 10:36 pm ET the Moon is void of course until 5:31 am.

Today's color is blue.


Sunday: Leo Moon


Leo Moon takes over at 5:31 am and has no major aspects until 1:17 am ET on Monday. The upcoming angle is with Saturn in Sagittarius.  Prepare for any tests, 'paperwork', or other early week business and increase your confidence.  Otherwise, enjoy and have fun. Leo Moon on a Sunday feels like a good combination for leisure and games.  Today's color is purple.

December 14th to 20th, 2015


Sunday, December 20th, I'm at Scarborough Yoga for a special Winter Solstice Yoga practice and guided meditation, yoga nidra. Yoga for Capricorn time, sign of the skeletal system, includes postures for strong bones. Meditation is totally restorative to regenerate your cells and energize your intentions.

Register online. Last year we filled the room so reserve in advance. $20 1:30-3 pm 433 US Rte 1 Scarborough Maine (next to Len Libby)

Monday: Aquarius Moon, Sun square Jupiter


Aquarius Moon time begins at 7:59 am. Hours before that are void of course and prone to mix ups or dreaming a bit extra. Set the alarm if you need to be somewhere.  The Sun square Jupiter in Sagittarius and Virgo and Mercury trine Neptune, for different reasons, indicate talks about how far to go and how big to dream. This is a day for sorting through personal goals and problems. With Aquarius Moon it's about moving beyond your own best interests to take into consideration the whole group, family, community or world interests. As you act on something that may seem individual or small, keep the whole picture, the ripple effect in mind.  Neptune could lead conversations and planning astray, and if you want to get past imagining and into making things happen you might benefit from letting go of a preconceived vision in favor of one that's more realistic and do-able.  Today's color is turquoise.


Tuesday: Aquarius Moon


Aquarius Moon is very busy contacting planets from Saturn to Uranus, Mars and Venus.  Mixed influences include serious decision making, responding quickly and intelligently to sudden changes or information, and seeking some yield or some kind of truce in a difficult relationship.  The final aspect is with Mars at 6:24 pm (and then with the Sun at 2:17 am ET). Mars in Libra wants justice and Aquarius has global health in mind. The phrase 'fair trade' is a good representation of what's going on with this trine.  Is there a place you could be more involved, take more of a giving role or step back and balance things by not shouldering so much so someone else can find their role and their way. If you've been enabling, this could be the day to step back with a more objective point of view.  The sextile coming up overnight, with the Sun, makes decisions easier and helps with our confidence.  It may also facilitate easy travels.  Today's color is blue.


Wednesday: Aquarius to Pisces Moon


The Moon is void of course from 2:17 am ET to 12:45 pm, after a sextile with the Sun. Pisces Moon moves in then. Moods brighten, burdens lessen, and sails are smooth with any luck! It's not the best morning for spending, dealing with detail or imparting important information. It is a good day to mix socializing with business, have a company breakfast, and gather with only good cheer in mind.  There are no other planetary aspects today.  Enjoy the company of others. Today's color is light green.


Thursday: Pisces Moon


Today is like the variety pack where you get a little sample of everything.  Emotional tone is present as the Moon visits one of our most sensitive signs. Notice intuition and sense of things we cannot see yet believe in. Mercury sextile Pluto offers time to look within, be your own guide and advisor, and gently converse about something that needs sorting out. It's a good day for self care, doing healthy things for your feet (ruled by Pisces), and buying new shoes or boots.  Go easy on yourself and others as much as possible. Today's color is black.


Friday: Pisces to Aries Moon


From 10:14 am to 4:26 pm ET, the Moon is in that transitional void of course time.  Less is more. Minimize your schedule. Clear some clutter, but carefully so you don't lost a paper or object you'll need later.  Have company parties or leisurely lunches. Expect that progress will be minimal. The important pieces of information or people may not be present.  It's a good day for time off, but not if you plan to do holiday shopping. Save all your receipts. It's another good day for self care, escaping the usual routine, and doing simple preparations or tasks you haven't had time for. Be creative and loose with expectations.  The Moon is opposite Jupiter. Don't go overboard with anything including emotional responses.  The Moon and Sun square in mutable signs and what you think may not be the outcome at all. Aries Moon comes at 4:26 pm and it could provide a wild night.  If you'd rather skip the madness, take the night to yourself with the Moon in the 1st sign, representing the individual. Today's color is red. 


Saturday: Aries Moon, Mercury conjunct Pluto


There's a very bold, fiery influence on the external side. People are likely to be rushing, act competitively or aggressively as Moon meets Uranus and prepares to oppose Mars on Sunday. Pluto is the quiet, more subtle influence from a more inner place. This prompts reflection, introspection and quiet, but important discussions.  Some will face things they've avoided, compartmentalized or hidden in order not to answer to or fully feel.  Some will make strong declarations of previously unspoken feelings or motives.  All aspects seem to have a trigger point for release, so keep those releases healthy and manageable.  It's not a good day to lose control of emotions, but rather to understand them better.  With all of these planetary aspects to the emotional Moon, most activities could go either way depending on the personalities and circumstances involved.  Remain calm and non-confrontational. Today's color is white.


Sunday: Aries to Taurus Moon, Mercury square Uranus


Mercury met Pluto and goes on to square Uranus today. The results of introspection, conversation, and interaction yesterday lead to decisions and announcements, complete with the after effects. News may not go over well at first. Some discussions will overheat and become arguments. People are likely to speak impulsively and say things defensively or insensitively.   Mars opposite the Moon does nothing to help. Passive aggression and other unproductive ways of dealing with interpersonal issues is the likely result.  At 5:01 pm to 7:13 pm ET, the Moon is void of course before entering Taurus.  How delicately and tactfully can you manage yourself in the face of stress or insanity today? Make sure whatever you undertake is worth it and that you're prepared to handle the results and people's reactions. This is the final evening of Sagittarius time.  Today's color is lavender.

 

December 7th to 13th, 2015

 

Monday: Scorpio Moon, Moon conjunct Venus

After an overnight void of course, the Moon shifts to strong willed Scorpio at 6:26 am ET and meets Venus, planet of love, at 12:25 pm. In Scorpio, Venus is consumed with the object or person of desire. An undeniable pull, like a strong tide, characterizes this conjunction. The Moon, our emotional side, is driven and perhaps preoccupied by matters of love.  Urgent need to contact, be reassured or express feelings could come with this Venus meeting.  Aside from relationship, in our other tasks and endeavors, perfectionism and the search for perfect harmony is in the forecast. There's a surge of creative energy as the Moon also aligns with Neptune, the zodiac's other romance planet.  Today's color is maroon.


Tuesday: Sun trine Uranus

The Moon forms a sextile, harmonious angle, with Pluto. There's a darkness that goes with this and it may feel melancholy, slightly anxious, or just a bit more introverted.  It's a good day to tune into feelings, intuition, and acknowledge things you struggle with. Do this in order to find more guidance, even from within. New Moon is coming Friday, and now is the time to reconsider your path.  The Sun in Sagittarius combines forces with Uranus in Aries, a powerhouse of fire energy.  Sudden bursts of activity, unexpected announcements, and other unpredictable events occur. With the Sun in Sagittarius this relates to honest revelations, reasons to travel or move, and completely unplanned changes.  Today's color is red.


Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon

The Moon is void of course from 1:39 am ET to 5:25 pm. This is a long void Moon in Scorpio. Try not to get too fixed on outcomes. Do routine tasks that require little extra effort, especially mental effort. Take a few hours to yourself. Avoid spending and shopping. Save bigger decisions or meetings for another time.  This can be a very enjoyable day as Jupiter harmonizes with the Moon at 1:39 am and has the last word. Jupiter in Virgo helps with versatility, adaptability and spontaneous plans.  It looks like a good day to work around the landscape or house, decorate, build, or make things.  Get grounded in pleasurable tasks.  At 5:25 pm the Moon moves to Sagittarius for an active social or study night. Mercury changes signs, cruising into Capricorn for a few weeks, at 9:34 pm. Mercury influences problem solving, organizations and leadership for this cycle. Continue to avoid the more significant decisions and expenses tonight as Mercury settles into a new place.  Wear purple today. 


Thursday: Sagittarius Moon

With New Moon in Sag arriving tomorrow, decide, plan and be prepared to move on things swiftly late this week and next. Be realistic and avoid the influence of Neptune squaring the Moon. Feel confident and serious with decisions as the Moon and Saturn meet. Sagittarius Moon and the New Moon signal new adventures waiting. There's opposition and uncertainty as Mars opposes Uranus today. This can be confrontational, relate to accidents and arguments.  Take plenty of care with what you do and where you go, not only today but for days on either side of this opposition.  Avoid volatile, violent, overheated situations. It's not a great day to get involved in protests or crowds where unstable people could be drawn.  This is not a day to debate or confront someone. Be safe around electricity, power tools and fire.  Take the peaceful warrior stance if you must hold your ground. Today's color is light blue.


Friday: New Moon in Sagittarius, Venus trine Neptune

With luck this will be a fun, romantic day. New Moon activates movement and change and is exact at 5:29 am ET. Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are all influences. Mars brings justice to the table from Libra. Jupiter urges health and productivity from Virgo, and Uranus contributes to the speed of occurrences late this week. Perspective can switch and expand quite suddenly. Aha moments are likely. From new awarenesses spring the truth, the core, and the freedom that goes with realization. Breakthroughs characterize this New Moon. At 11:06 am ET, void of course Moon starts so do important meetings and conversations before then. Enjoy celebrations. Expect things to go at their own speed rather than any predetermined one. Latecomers and mix ups are likely today. Wear white.

(Maine friends, Yoga Nidra is a quiet, restorative way to begin your weekend at Greener Postures Yoga in West Falmouth 6-7 pm. Regular drop in price or pass)

Saturday: Capricorn Moon

 

Capricorn Moon begins at 1:46 am ET. Mercury newly in Capricorn meets the Moon at 8:43 am for a very decisive day, full of news and conversation. Some announcements will be surprising, related to moving, travel, global business, system changes, and educational institutions or plans.  Today's get-it-done Capricorn Moon is balanced by Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, both bringing feelings, emotional connections, and love more into the picture. Do something constructive with your family or the one you love! There's a traditional influence playing out during this weekend's activities.  Stick with the tried and true. Today's color is green.

 

Sunday: Capricorn Moon

Astrological influences test and challenge more today, though some of that may have been at work from mid week on.  The Moon meets shadowy Pluto, squares Mars and Uranus, the two that opposed each other on Thursday.  Upsets occur easily on days like this. Resolve to be only peaceful, not to push emotional buttons and keep things simple and cool.  Some personal project, writing, organizing and introspection is worth your time.  The Moon aligns with Jupiter in Virgo making it a great study or project day.  Void of course Moon begins at 6:07 pm ET. Relax tonight. Wear gray.

 

November 30th to December 6th, 2015

Monday: Leo Moon


Leo Moon is in harmony with the Sun, Saturn and Mars.  This fixed Moon sign can help us regain balance and focus our attention after a holiday weekend.  If you need to make a good decision or get something finalized, aspects are pretty decent. Saturn and the Sun in Sagittarius bring philosophy of life, questions of freedom vs responsibilities, and an educated point of view to whatever needs to be dealt with.  Mars in Libra adds extroversion and reflects the social and active energy of Leo Moon.  Connect with each other. Use wisdom in decision making. Today's color is purple. 


Tuesday: Mercury  trine Uranus


Leo Moon, Mercury in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries stimulate fire energy. The Moon also aligns with Venus in Libra.  Suffice to say there's a LOT going on. Uranus adds to the quickness and in some cases shocking or unanticipated nature of events.  As Uranus and Mercury align, surprising announcements come. Be careful with travels, either long or short distance, and stay very aware and focused on the road.  Some things fall together quickly and more easily on days like this. Other unexpected things could throw off balance and require fast thinking and responses. Be intuitive. Today has a playful aspect, though competition may tend toward forceful and dominating rather than fun. Void of course Moon starts at 10:09 pm ET and last until 5:09 am Wednesday. Today's color is orange.


Wednesday: Virgo Moon


Virgo Moon from 5:09 am ET opposes Neptune in Pisces and squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Different approaches will be obvious and may come across as extreme.  Practical versus frivolous and emotional versus rational are two of the extremes.  Moon and Saturn bring up selectiveness, make us choosy and finicky.  That square brings out philosophical differences.  Things that don't look, feel or seem quite right drive us crazy under this influence.  If today feels unsettled, see if reading or cleaning are calming influences since both can be enjoyable and therapeutic under the circumstances.  Today's color is navy blue.


Thursday: Virgo Moon


4th quarter Moon in Virgo gives us a chance to reconsider details and do some problem solving.  The Moon is active with Sun, Pluto and Mercury and finally meets Jupiter at 11:59 pm and moves void of course.  Finer points, talking points, analysis, and bringing things to proper scale are some of today's preferred activities. Don't skim the details.  There's a bit of perfectionism in the air.  Moon and Jupiter bless Virgo, Pisces' relationships, and Leo financial dealings.  Sagittarius has multiple things to solve and hope for and today includes negotiating and possibly a positive career event or recognition. Void Moon begins at 11:59 pm ET. Today's color is brown.


Friday: Void of course Moon, Venus to Scorpio


Void of course Moon lasts until 5:34 pm ET. Venus changes signs and has a passionate, committed while also jealous and vengeful influence for the next 4 weeks.  Venus in Scorpio is a good time to show loyalty and renew strong feelings while keeping a handle on negative emotions and obsessions.  Mercury squares Jupiter for more negotiations especially for Virgo and Sagittarius. There's much to be discussed and sorted. Look for agreeable outcomes after the effort has been put in. Differences of opinion will come up and need to be reconciled if anything is to move forward.  Libra Moon makes for a social evening. Today's color is pink.


Saturday:  Libra Moon


Libra Moon lines up with Saturn & the Sun, meets Mars, and squares Pluto. There's a mix of ease and effort in the forecast. Avoid passive aggressive actions. Honest, direct approaches are favored. Moon and Pluto can bring up fears and insecurities, and that aspect continues tomorrow.  During Libra Moon, aim for faired, balanced interactions and sharing of tasks and responsibilities.  Today's color is black.


Sunday: Sun sextile Mars


Libra Moon lasts through the weekend. The Sagittarius Sun forms a sextile to Mars in Libra. This is considered an easy aspect and news that's been delayed may come through. Many things happen with less effort and more speed. However, Mars squares Pluto in Capricorn and power struggles ensue. The power play can be two parts of yourself as well as competition or threats from others. Calming influences help and keeping up exercise, meditation, outdoor walks and spiritual practices to stay centered is a good idea. Have a healthy outlet, or a friends to talk with, as emotions or problems may overflow.  One example of this whole day/weekend playing  out is sudden action on something like a separation or divorce that you expected to take much longer. Then blame, anxiety or lack of control take over. It's much better to go running, lift some weights, clean the garage out, or have a long talk and vent to an understanding friend than to stuff the emotions or do vengeful things or live with the fear or negativity. The Moon is void of course from 9:03 pm to 6:26 am ET on Monday.  Today's color is red.

Monday: Aries to Taurus Moon, Venus opposite Uranus


The Moon is void of course until 11:26 am ET and moves to Taurus then.  Venus in Libra opposes Uranus at Aries at 5:13 pm. Taurus Moon grounds us in tasks and is a stabilizing force. Moon and Neptune are in harmony for creative approaches. Uranus and Venus influence relationships in terms of surprises and status changes. In contrast to Taurus Moon, these two shake things up. Effects could be either exciting or startling. Tuesday's Saturn action begins Monday in Pacific time zone, so check out tomorrow's forecast for impact as soon as today.  Today's color is pink.


Tuesday: Mars sextile Saturn, Mercury conjunct Saturn


Saturn is a force today, meeting Mercury for clear, honest revelations that are not necessarily easy to digest.  News and announcements come, and it's Full Moon time so the impact is amplified even more.  Mars and Saturn deal with justice, liberation, and the need for courage and maturity.  As a challenging Full Moon moves in, oppositional people and situations energize. Avoid volatile situations and try not to pressure or trigger people emotionally or unnecessarily.  Decisions and final word on things is likely.  Void of course Moon begins at 8:26 pm, and it really is a time to be careful and non-confrontational. Today's color is black.


Wednesday: Full Moon in Gemini


Void of course Moon early on leads to Gemini Moon time beginning at 12:15 pm. The morning or the aforementioned hours tend toward frantic, unfocused, and confusing. At 12:15 pm ET, at least the Moon is solidly in one sign, and Full Moon is at 5:44 pm ET.  This Moon opposes Saturn in Sagittarius and may involve hard conversations, and answers, though they may not be the ones hoped for.  There's a harsh tone in the air. Soften criticism and statements if possible.  People will be edgy and sensitive or blunt and unfeeling depending on the situation.  Mercury and Uranus increase the startling, blunt tone and Mars and Mercury say we could all too easily fall into arguments and disagreement.  Notice if you're anxious and taking it out on others. It happens, but once you realize you have a chance to regroup and maybe let something go until after the holiday weekend.  Today's color is gold.


Thursday: Gemini Full Moon

 

Though the exact time of Full Moon is Wednesday, we must consider this Thanksgiving Day Full Moon time too. Gemini Moon opposes Mercury and also engages with Mars, Uranus, Jupiter and Venus. It's a wild and crazy bunch of influences, so perhaps the people surrounding you will be wild and crazy too. Gemini rules communication and conversations, planning, socializing, and problem solving are likely. A variety of feelings result depending on the nature of such interactions. Venus and Mars in Libra are in harmony with the Moon so relationships and dates may benefit and the power of attraction is with the air and fire signs especially. Saturn squares Neptune though, and it's important not to deceive yourself.  See people and situations for what they are and try not to romanticize.  The Moon is void of course at 10:35 pm until 2:27 pm Friday. Shopping is a no no tonight and tomorrow morning, but if you must do it, save those receipts. There's a better chance of changing your mind or a gift not working out somehow. Today's color is yellow.

 

Friday: Gemini to Cancer Moon

 

Sentiment and grounding make their way in post-Full Moon. Void of course Moon lasts until 2:27 pm ET.  These hours are not known for our best decision making or judgement calls. Keep it simple, clean, exercise or enjoy music and creative projects. Gatherings are nice too, though people may not be reliable or on time. Make flexible plans. Cancer Moon comes at 2:27 pm ET with no aspects to other planets until 2:28 am, overnight, and then there's a flurry of activity.  Intuition heightens. Clear away trivial thoughts and tasks and focus on what means the most. Spend Cancer Moon time with people you love. Eat together and enjoy sentimental moments and connection.  Today's color is light blue. 

 

Saturday: Cancer Moon

 

We're easily led into romantic thoughts or connections as the Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces. Do keep character and history in mind as you interact. This can help avoid disappointment. For example, if someone is generally a sweet talker and then fails to follow through, don't expect anything different this time if you are influences by him or her today.  Pluto is opposite the Moon and Uranus in Aries and Mars in Libra are square.  This is rarely easy, often unpredictable, and in this case relates strongly to fairness and equality.  We are challenged to face fears and shadow sides and keep emotions from overtaking.  Be very aware of surroundings and people's motives, especially tonight. Wear white.

 

Sunday: Sun square Neptune & conjunct Saturn

 

The Moon is in Cancer, and then Leo, void of course from 7:46 am to 7:47 pm ET. Again, these hours are not recommended for major purchases or judgment calls. Keep it simple and clear in terms of communication, plans, and tasks. It's not a good time to upgrade systems or file things away since we tend to forget what's done during these hours.  The Sun squares Neptune which is another reason to reserve judgment.  There's a mutable influence as they tour Sagittarius and Pisces, so situations are ever changing and it's difficult to predict or know exactly what to believe.  Being too idealistic or sentimental could lead in an undesirable direction.  The Sun meets Saturn and there is an unforgiving tone to that.  Criticism and other statements come out sharply.  Be realistic about what you're seeking and your method for achieving what you hope for.  As you think seriously about life's direction and your goals, it could be easy to hurt someone else's feelings or burn a bridge under this conjunction.  Moon moves to Leo at 7:47 pm and her next aspect will also be with Saturn, a major planetary player this week. Today's color is orange.

Monday: Capricorn Moon


Capricorn Moon signals progress. Construct anything from a building to a statement in an orderly way as Mercury assists from Scorpio. There's a meticulous aspect to what we do as Jupiter aligns with the Moon from Virgo.  Take care without going over the line to perfectionism (which will only cause frustration).  Celebrate the results of your efforts and contributions. About a third of the way between New and Full Moon, this is a good day to gain momentum and keep the ball rolling, so to speak.  Renew your enthusiasm and work ethic.  We may not like to be invaded or disturbed by irrelevant things today.  Be persistent with what matters to you most now.  It's meant to be a no drama day though Uranus in Aries indicates some last minute problem solving earlier in the day.  Check  messages right away in the morning in case that's true.  Void of course Moon starts at 3:53 pm ET.  Business, including important conversations, is best taken care of before then. Our color today is green.


Tuesday: Aquarius Moon, Sun conjunct Mercury


Planet Mercury is a key player early this week. Today, the Sun and Mercury meet in Scorpio for sharp senses, strong statements, investigating to resolve problems or mysteries, and an orderly way of being.  Focused energy and purposefulness also comes from Aquarius Moon beginning at 2:24 am ET, and from Saturn aligning with the Moon.  There's a lean toward education, training, opening the mind and using mental processes to figure things out and put systems in place.  Take actions that you hope will bring long term results.  Commitment strengthens, and if you're not feeling that, be honest since promises made now are meant to be kept.  Today's color is indigo blue.


Wednesday: Neptune Direct, Aquarius Moon


Neptune direct in Pisces 11:31 am  ET could help reverse delusional behavior and denial. Depending upon how Neptune is placed in one's chart, this may or may not be noticeable in the months ahead. It's likely to impact Pisces and those with planets or Moon in Pisces most.  We don't pay quite as much attention to the planets more distant from earth and the Sun when it comes to retrogrades.  If you need to face reality, perhaps Neptune direct is more helpful.  Also, creative processes and projects may go forward more smoothly.  Aquarius Moon aligns with Uranus for big ideas, sudden enlightenments, and in some cases the answer you've been looking for.   Today's color is turquoise blue. 


Thursday: 2nd Quarter Moon


The Moon shifts from Aquarius to Pisces at 7:21 am ET after a few hours void of course beginning at 3:19 am.  2nd quarter Moon in Aquarius is a time to show the results of what you've been focused on, from changes in health habits to projects and plans in the making.  Review, begin to revise a first draft, and check the status of anything that's due soon.  Moon squares a handful of planets indicating stubborn challenges and effort to get past obstacles and stuck points.  It's not an easy time to convince or sway someone's strong opinion. Today's color is blue.


Friday: Mercury in Sagittarius, Pisces Moon


It's a day for versatile thinking and adapting as Mercury moves to Sagittarius at 2:43 pm ET and the Moon is in Pisces, a sister sign in the mutable family.  When Mercury changes signs it can feel a bit like Mercury retrograde. Factors and minds change. Different perspectives contribute to changes of course.  Today is especially like that as the Moon moves through Pisces, opposes Jupiter in mutable Virgo. Flowing is preferable to wishy washy, and both are possible effects.  Try not to change plans if someone's feelings will be impacted.  Check schedules and if you can't follow through, let the other party know.  The uncertainty of a day like this can contribute to sensitivity and a let down feeling.  Venus squares Pluto for facing the realities of relationship. That could feel a bit dark though it may also lead to sorting out and clearing confusion. If you're willing to confront it fairly and honestly, have the deep, intimate conversations. Today's color is black. 


Saturday: Pisces to Aries Moon


Void of course Moon is 8:23 am to 10:12 am ET. Shopping may best be saved until after 10:12. The Sun, Mercury and Saturn are in harmony with the Moon while Mars is opposing.  With Mars in Libra at odds with Aries Moon, problems could be quite contentious and competition aggressive. Saturn and Mercury aim to bring order to chaos and structure to indefinite plans.  Today's color is yellow. 


Sunday: Sun in Sagittarius


The Sun moves to Sagittarius at 10:25 am. Aries Moon opposes Venus in Libra and meets Uranus.  With all this fire, anything could accelerate quickly, including disagreements.  Know where you're going and have alternate options available in case situations change with little notice.  Mercury is newly in Sagittarius too, for new focus on truth, higher level thinking, and long distance travels. Void of course Moon is from 2:16 pm to 11:26 am on Monday. Those hours are unreliable and if you're spending money, save receipts. Major contracts or agreements are not recommended during those hours which are prone to forgetfulness, lack of follow through and unclear information or directions. Full Moon ahead, and the warmup begins eventfully. Today's color is red.

November 9th to 15th, 2015

 

Monday: Libra Moon void of course

Monday void of course Moon lasts until 11:02 pm ET in Libra. Randomness of events and thoughts will be common. Lack of focus and flitting from one thing to another or multitasking characterize a void Moon in air sign Libra.  Distractions can lead to errors or loss of balance. Watch your steps. It's a good day to wear sensible shoes and drive very reasonably. There are no aspects between the Moon and planets today.  It's time for preparation and considering all perspectives and options for a significant, decisive New Moon on the 11th. Today's color is maroon.

 

Tuesday: Scorpio Moon, Sun sextile Jupiter, Mercury sextile Pluto

Three harmonious angles grace this day before New Moon. Decisions with long lasting impact are due, and Mercury aligns with Pluto for organizing the information and sequence of events. The Moon will meet Mercury tomorrow and this is a productive, useful precursor. Determine your own fate today. If you've been avoiding the inevitable, resign yourself to taking action very soon. The Sun in harmony with Jupiter is positive for growth in relationships and business propositions, both. Though Sun and Jupiter are bubbly and optimistic, inclined to promises and magnificent plans, their sign placements now add sensible, serious tone to agreements and opportunities. Try to be sure of what you want right now. Define your terms and expect to follow all the way through with any piece involving time, expectations and responsibilities to be fulfilled.  This is true beyond today, through the next two weeks. Thirdly, the Moon and Neptune form a water sign trine in Scorpio/Pisces. Add elements of order and organization to creative pursuits.  Love and romance are enhanced, especially for the water and earth signs.  Today's color is indigo blue.

 

Wednesday: New Moon in Scorpio, Moon conjunct Mercury

The Moon meets Mercury for important conversations and agreements. It's time to solidify and move forward with a plan. Announcements change the landscape, perhaps at work for Libra or Gemini, in long term relationship for Taurus and in family matters for Leo.  New Moon at 12:47 pm, always conjunct the Sun, is also strongly influenced by Jupiter in Virgo. Health is a huge area for decisiveness and positive action.  All of yesterday's forecast can be reread as Jupiter, the Sun, Pluto and Mercury set things up for final decisions. The Moon aligns with Pluto today as well.  This New Moon is significant for promises, even to yourself.  Things put in place and acted on now are considered binding and difficult to reverse. Commitments will be made this week. If you move, buy property, become engaged, accept a new position (possible examples), expect to be with your new situation long term. Today's color is white. 

 

Thursday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon, Mars in Libra

First of all, reread Tuesday and Wednesday since all of those aspects are relevant and in  motion now.  Add to that as the Moon moves to Sagittarius and meets Saturn, the ruler of maturity, seniority and wisdom.  The Moon is only void from 9:54 to 10:14 am ET. Scorpio Moon aligns with Mars then, just before Mars shifts to Libra at 4:41 pm ET. Mars in Virgo is directly involved and good for doing, building and problem solving this morning.  Mars will not be quite comfortable in Libra, as Mars is the warrior and Libra the neutral, non confrontational sign.  Venus, happy in Libra, aligns with the Sagittarius Moon for love and adventure combined.  Today's color is red. 

 

Friday: Venus sextile Saturn, Mercury sextile Jupiter

Many things come together easily as planets align. The Venus/Saturn combination favors relationship agreements and coming to certain terms you will abide by.  There's both justice and freedom in this equation. Doing what's responsible as part of a partnership requires commitment, yet frees you from worry or the stress of trying to find consensus.  Mercury is also about contracts and terms, aligned with Jupiter in Virgo for the "how to" of the matter. Figure out the steps to take and outlining a sequence or flow chart under these aspects.  Venus is less romantic and more practical today.  Fairness is key throughout discussions and decisions.  The Moon also aligns with Uranus and squares Jupiter. Don't push things too far too fast.  Today's rhythm and attitude is open minded but steady, and problem solving is favored.  Void of course Moon, a time to act with extra thought and awareness, begins at 10:19 pm ET. Today's color is turquoise. 

 

Saturday: Capricorn Moon square Mars in Libra

The Moon is void of course until 7:21 pm ET and then in Capricorn. Take care of routine tasks and communications rather than the "big stuff. Adventures and weekend type fun are favored too.  Capricorn Moon and Mars indicate challenges in situations where work or responsibilities are not yet sorted out fairly. The result may be passive aggressive and plenty of complaining but perhaps not to the right person.  Deal with authority issues where something needs to be resolved, if you can handle it calmly that is.  Today's color is brown.

 

Sunday: Capricorn Moon

The Moon is in ambitious Capricorn. If you're not feeling successful right now, you could come down quite hard on yourself.  There's a need for leadership this weekend and if that's lacking, the workplace, family or group might be feeling down.  If leadership is in place, Neptune adds to the flair and creativity of being in charge. Try not to flee a situation that could benefit from your abilities and skills. Contribution is important to how we all feel a few days into the lunar cycle.  Did you get excited, then disappointed or burned out quickly? See if you can revive a good, solid plan if you're job hunting or trying to pull a  purposeful group together.  Moon squares Venus and meets Pluto. Face the shadows and come out on the brighter side or at least know where you're at and acknowledge that.  Today's color is black.

November 2nd to 8th, 2015

This Veteran's Day, please help me raise funds for Veterans and their families. This benefit is through Mass General Hospital Boston, Mass and the Red Sox Foundation.  Thank you so much for any contribution! I'm only $35 from my goal, though it would be amazing to send much more. Let's act together on behalf of our Veterans' families.


In gratitude,

Monday: Mercury in Scorpio, Mars conjunct Venus in Virgo


The Moon moves from Cancer to Leo at 10:48 am. Leo Moon squares Mercury newly in Scorpio. This square leads to fierce determination, particularly in search of answers.  We'll notice and experience persistence and strong will. It's a tough square if you need to debate a point, convince others, or find willingness and cooperation. The Moon also engages with Saturn in Sagittarius. This harmonious trine may help agreements, though certain conditions will have to be met.  It's a good day to act on educational plans, like applications. Moon trine Saturn may also help us do the responsible thing.  Mars and Venus meet in Virgo. This blend of masculine and feminine, warrior and muse, sparks love, romance, and also the practical aspect of getting along and managing a happy life together.  Do something kind, nurturing, or unexpected for the one you love.  Virgo, Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces this favors your relationships most directly. Sagittarius, Venus and Mars favor your career and public life including successful partnerships forming.  Wear pink today.


Tuesday: Leo Moon


The Moon squares the Sun on this 4th quarter Moon day. Uranus plays along with Leo Moon, from Aries. Take initiative today. Act with good, strong intention. It's prime time to clear away what you don't need, from clutter to unhealthy relationships.  Uranus in Aries is a "firestarter" so light that spark under what's been stagnant and won't change without your determination.  The void of course Moon is long, beginning at 8:46 pm and lasting all through Wednesday until 9:22 pm ET. The lingering effect during v.o.c. time is the element of surprise.  It could be a fun night out or day in the making.  Wear red.


Wednesday: Leo to Virgo Moon


Today has no aspects as the Moon is void of course until 9:22 pm and then shifts to Virgo. A spontaneous attitude and open schedule is best. Fun, original, irreverent, and out of the ordinary describe today's energy.  Do watch your step since Uranus had the last word with the Moon and some may move, drive, or act too fast.  Today's color is brown.


Thursday: Virgo Moon, Sun sextile Pluto


Virgo Moon contacts 4 planets with a variety of influences, so the key is flexibility. Many situations arise, and thinking quickly and in versatile ways will help with judgement, problem solving, and knowing your own limits.  Information is important today. Is it useful, honest, and well supported with facts? Ask questions today.  The Sun and Pluto align in Scorpio/Capricorn. Both are introspective, skeptical signs.  Calculated moves leading to progressive change are favored. Business tends toward shrewd and serious.  Take agreements and your own word very seriously. Today's color is navy blue. 


Friday: Virgo Moon


Similar to yesterday, the Sun and Pluto align with the Moon.  If it's been tough to settle something this week, Mercury and Neptune help with creative problem solving today.  Adapt, add or change a variable, and find the point that makes the difference in someone's opinion.  It may be easier to influence a situation or yield to a circumstance.  The Moon meets Jupiter and will go on to meet Venus and Mars, also in Virgo, in the next 24 hours.  All this Virgo action leads to hands on work, creating, helping your neighbors or providing service in community settings.  Pitch in, see results.  Today's color is green.


Saturday: Libra Moon


From 7:47 to 10:14 am the Moon is void of course, then in Libra. Moon meets Venus and Mars in Virgo before changing signs.  This creates harmony and flexibility.  Work on improving relationships. Libra Moon aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius. Justice and responsibility to each other are highlighted.  Teaming up will feel good as long as each of you is contributing. Otherwise it could feel lonely or detached, even as part of a duo or group.  Speak up about what you need to make a situation work. Today's color is pink.


Sunday: Venus to Libra


Venus follows the Moon to Libra at 10:31 am ET. Today's Moon square Pluto and Uranus brings up challenging patterns. Old frustrations could become very present.  Inability to connect, act in fairness or face reality are some potential issues. Try to be real with yourself and avoid complications.  Minimize drama and calm anxieties.  Today's color is lavender. 

October 26th to November 1st, 2015

Home Base Yoga for Veterans


Monday: Void of Course Moon in Aries


The Moon enters void of course time at 8:25 am EDT until 2:07 am Tuesday.  Moon and Uranus meet and Mercury is directly across in Libra.  Unanticipated events, changes and communication challenges are likely.  Temporary fixes, substitutes, and alternative plans dot the day.  Tuesday is a better day for most activities. The Full Moon is in Taurus at 8:05 am Tuesday and it's a fruitful, solid time for all sorts of things from pleasures to accomplishments. Today could be a scramble to meet a due date, completion, or just keep matters calm and under control.  Wear yellow.


Tuesday: Taurus Full Moon


The Moon is Full in Taurus, in harmony with Neptune and Pluto. Opportunities and settlements come.  Resolve something, finish a project successfully, and celebrate abundance.  Quite a friendly Full Moon, this one's also influenced by Jupiter and Venus in Virgo. Th earth sign trines lend stability to decisions and foster growth.  Actions taken now have lasting results and impact.  Commit.  Today's color is white.


Wednesday: Taurus Moon


The Moon aligns with Venus, Jupiter and Mars, all in Virgo. Today can be productive or relaxing. Love and relationship, especially the practical aspects of living together and being agreeable, are favored today.  Full Moon finish ups continue including trying loose ends, acting with long term intention and bringing the body into balance and good health.  Void of course Moon from 11:20 am until Thursday 2:24 am EDT. Today's color is green.


Thursday: Gemini Moon


Gemini Moon arrives at 2:24 am, opposes Saturn in Sagittarius and squares Neptune in Pisces.  The dualities of responsibilities versus freedoms, honesty and half truths, and fanciful versus pragmatic thinking contrast and show themselves.  It would be natural to have an inner struggle with decision making or choice of words or topics.  Creative use of wording can be humorous or misleading.  The mind is likely to be busy today.  Keep some flexibility in thinking and the way you respond to others.  Shift your perspective if seeing the other side could be beneficial.  Today's color is blue.


Friday: Gemini Moon


The Moon squares Jupiter, Venus and Mars, and we'll exchange and explore ideas, searching for agreement and plans while sorting through points of disagreement as well. The Sun and Neptune form an idealistic trine, and with the Sun in Scorpio it may be hard to let go of a fixed idea. This water sign trine is imaginative and magical at best. It can be romantic and passionate, especially for the water and earth signs.  Tonight the Moon and Mercury align at 10:52 pm EDT and then the Moon is void of course. It's a social night out followed by a family or home oriented Halloween tomorrow. Today's color is light blue.


Saturday: Cancer Moon


The Cancer Moon moves in at 5:09 am for Halloween and Day of the Dead on Sunday.  These ancient feast days have both pagan and religious roots, but most notably, they connect to our ancestry and those who have passed as does the sign Cancer.  Being home or with family is favored. Honor the elders or relatives who have passed.  Feel the psychic aspect of the season and the magic of the natural world.  Moon align with Scorpio Sun and Neptune in Pisces continuing yesterday's vibe of Sun and Neptune.  Today's color is indigo.


Sunday: Daylight Savings Ends 2 am EDT


Cancer Moon continues until 10:48 am Monday morning.  Today the Moon aligns with Virgo planets that are highlighted in the entire week forecast, Mars, Venus & Jupiter.  This is down to earth energy lending well to cleaning, sprucing up home and improving relationships.  The Moon also opposes Pluto and squares Uranus. This may cause tension or anxiety.  Grounding in tasks helps with scattered energy of Uranus in Aries or the fear that Pluto can bring up.  Pick a project you love and dive into it fully.  Today's color is black. 

October 19th to October 25th, 2015

Monday: Capricorn Moon

 

The Moon's monthly meeting with Pluto is supported by Mars, Venus and Jupiter in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces.  Constructive for action and productive for meetings, this earth sign energy helps us get things done.  Mercury in Libra squares the Moon, and if you can sort out differing points of view calmly and rationally, this leads to progress with legal agreements and system changes, for example. Take initiative today. Many things are timed well from job interviews to breaking ground for a home or business.  Today's color is gray.

 

Tuesday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon

 

It's 2nd quarter Moon time, a time for progress.  Keep things moving on projects, negotiations and other priorities.  Capricorn Moon is industrious. Today the Moon squares Uranus in Aries and the Sun in Libra. It's important to take your time with personal or business differences rather than judge rashly or act impulsively.  Power struggles can come with squares in these signs. Passion versus intellect versus tradition is an example of what presents during this part of the lunar cycle.  Finding common ground is the key.  At 4:31 pm the Moon moves void of course until 9:38 pm.  These hours are for unwinding and not very suitable for detailed work. Routine studies and tasks can be accomplished then. Aquarius Moon moves in at 9:38 EDT and is community oriented. Look up from your work and see who surrounds you or is trying to connect.  Wear blue today.

 

Wednesday: Aquarius Moon

 

The Moon aligns with Mercury and the Sun in Libra today.  Social, collaborative, and extroverted energy infuses the day. Make a good impression, show your willingness to contribute, or step into a new social situation.  Scientific, inventive thinking is also favored.  Today's color is turquoise.

 

Thursday: Aquarius Moon, Mercury square Pluto

 

Aquarius Moon in harmony with Uranus highlights creative, inventive thinking and opens unexpected doors.  Follow up on hypotheses or opportunities. We'll tend to be socially spontaneous.  Like minds attract each other.  Mercury square Pluto relates to solving mysteries, seeking information, and discovering underlying circumstances or feelings as you move through a process.  This could be in business, education or a matter like divorce or in forming or dissolving another type of partnership.  Today's color is silver. 

 

Friday: Pisces Moon, Sun in Scorpio, Venus trine Pluto

 

The Sun changes signs at 1:47 pm EDT, and Scorpio time begins. Venus trine Pluto is an interesting follow up to Mercury/Pluto square. Today agreements should come together more easily.  Venus in Virgo is particular and Pluto in Capricorn is not very forthcoming, but the subtleties of relationships and information appear to have a more positive influence with this trine, a favorable angle.  Pisces Moon begins at 1:18 am after less than an hour void of course.  The Moon squares Saturn, meets Neptune, and aligns with Pluto. Show your versatility, keep good boundaries where they're needed and learn from the past. These hours can be creative and romantic.  Connect beyond the surface.  Today's color is navy blue.

 

Saturday: Moon opposite Venus, Jupiter, Mars


This weekend the Pisces Moon is opposing planets in Virgo, and on Sunday Venus meets Jupiter directly. Love is the hot topic of the weekend, and friendship and other close relationships are also highlighted.  Venus and Jupiter strongly favor Virgo and accent Virgo qualities.  Look for interesting relationship developments including practical agreements for couples.  These Virgo planets are down to earth and lead to problem solving and better management of day to day life together. There is also a romantic aspect, and the Pisces Moon helps that along.  Under these oppositions, aim to peacefully end disagreements.  Opposites attract.  Debates could happen and are likely to center around one person being the pragmatic while one is the escapist or the romantic.  Blend points of view and have it all. Today's color is green.


Sunday: Venus conjunct Jupiter, Mercury opposite Uranus


Today has entirely different aspects, and one is loving and giving while the other could cause harm or hurt feelings.  Be mindful with words as Mercury opposes Uranus. If we speak too quickly, the sharpness of the opposition may come through stronger than necessary.  On the other hand, that opposition as an inventive quality that grand ideas can grow out of.  Plans can suddenly change on days like this.  The Moon is in fast moving Aries from 2:22 am on.  Make sure you're paying attention to the right things as attention shifts quickly today.  The Venus/Jupiter influence is much more reliable, forgiving and yielding.  Emotional connections grow and resolving issues is favored. To go with Venus's vibe, wear pink.

October 12th to October 18th, 2015

Monday: Libra New Moon


The New Moon is at 8:06 pm EDT. Now that Mercury is out of retrograde and the lunar cycle restarts, refresh your routine or make bigger changes with brighter aspects. There could be some bumps along the way earlier this week, related to untraditional courses of action, startling news received or delivered, and legalities and partnership negotiations that must be taken care of. With Mercury and Saturn meeting tomorrow, believe it can be done and develop a solid stance or plan to initiate sometime this week, perhaps tomorrow. Keep things fair and balanced in one on one relationships under this Libra Moon. Go beyond rethinking to actually devising a course of action to follow. Get off the fence, so to speak. Void Moon begins at New Moon time, 8:06 pm.Today's color is white.


Tuesday: Void of Course Moon to Scorpio


In the USA, business hours are void Moon hours for the most part. Keep to routine tasks. Have a conversation you're hoping will go simply and well. Things may be brushed off more easily so ask forgiveness or admit an error and hope for the best.  Detail oriented work is not favored. Go back and edit later when the Moon changes signs.  This appears to be a transitional sort of day following the New Moon. Move slowly into changes. Mercury and Saturn align for major decisions and commitments. Later is preferable for announcing such things or signing off, once the Moon hits Scorpio at 5:36 pm EDT.  Concentration strengthens then. It's a good night for a date or important meeting as the Moon moves toward sextile with Venus in Virgo (3:13 am Wednesday). Today's color is indigo.


Wednesday: Scorpio Moon


The Moon harmonizes with several planets in Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces. Go for long term commitments. Give the final word. Sign agreements. Feel your will and passion activate.  All sorts of things come together more easily on days like this.   Know your own mind. Have good reason if you yield to someone else's agenda. Void Moon starts at 8:58 pm EDT. Today's color is dark red/maroon, a Scorpio color. 


Thursday: Mars trine Pluto


Under the influence of Mars in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn, get things done. This trine impacts the whole week, really, but is exact at 11:36 pm EDT.  Put fears and lack of confidence aside.  Act on well thought out plans, sort out information to find solutions, improve physical health and habits, and change a system that's not working well. The Moon is void of course in Scorpio. Many things can be taken care of though. Just be thoughtful and ignore urgent feelings in favor of practical, productive moods and deeds.  This can be a very enjoyable day for getting into a project that's been just sitting there waiting for your attention.  Today's color is black.


Friday: Sagittarius Moon


Sagittarius Moon moves in at 5:18 am, meets Saturn and aligns with Mercury in Libra. Expect activity regarding legal agreements, mission statements and other things to be put in writing and or published.  Philosophy, education and merging of priorities or businesses become important on days like this.  Address questions of personal freedom and other responsibilities and what all of that entails, in order to find some balance and consensus.  Neptune is in play, squaring the Moon and opposing Venus in Virgo. Relationships may feel the impact most. Honesty or trust can become an issue, and we can easily lose sight of what's practical during this opposition.  On the other hand, opposites attract is in effect and it can be a romantic date night. Just keep things honest. Today's color is light blue.


Saturday: Mars conjunct Jupiter


Mars meets Jupiter in Virgo and both square the Sagittarius Moon. Strengthening health is favored.  Organize and clean.  Sagittarius Moon trine to Uranus indicates quickness and spontaneity.  A pull to go out, have fun, and forget responsibility is balanced with urge to be productive.  Ideally, you can do both.  Pitch it and do big projects as a group.  Mars and Jupiter activate us for physical work or activities.  Today's color is red. 


Sunday: Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon


The Moon is void of course from 4:48 am to 2:52 pm EDT.  It's best not to have a strict schedule. This time is lax and good for relaxing or being active, so long as you're not restricted. Rules may be broken as will timetables.  The Moon is in harmony with the Sun early on, creating confidence and ease in relating with other people. It's also a great day to get lost in an engaging book. Capricorn Moon from 2:52 pm on is a good time for study, repairing, building and organizing.  Today's color is green.

October 5th to 11th, 2015

 

Monday: Cancer Moon


Moods take over and even the most centered are tested as Cancer Moon and Uranus square. Adding to the frustration of retrograde Mercury delays and confusion, Uranus often throws in a new glitch. Necessity is the mother of invention though, and brilliance can be the result of revisions.  The Void of course Moon from 7:04 am to 4:31 am EDT tomorrow is good reason to consult an editor and triple check anything requiring facts, figures or the final word. Autumn cleaning is a great plan for today, just don't throw away something you'll later need. Cooking is favored, but set a timer.  It's an unpredictable time, and schedules and changes of plan will be rampant.  Watch your step.  Cozy time at home may be just the thing tonight. Today's color is white.


Tuesday: Leo Moon, Sun square Pluto, Mars opposite Neptune


The Moon moves to Leo at 4:31 am EDT. Usually Leo Moon provides an optimistic boost and a boatload of fun, however on this Tuesday, planetary energies are all over the place and could be quite challenging.  The Moon and Mercury retro align for chance or planned encounters and contact with old friends. Mercury also contacts Saturn, requesting decisions and information of a serious nature.  Big life stuff will stare us in the face looking for answers. Meanwhile, the Sun and Pluto stir up fairness issues and mess with agreements that seemed solid.  Pluto brings up fears that may get in the way of progress. The Sun is all about justice and beauty in Libra, while Pluto in Capricorn comes from a darker place that could feel like cynicism or fatalism today. Let's just say pessimism and lack of belief in one self or the system may create problems in partnership, legal matters, and even in the arts.  Mars in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces instigating issues with traitors, con artists and deception generally.  Looking for an upside to the opposition, it could be highly creative and bring a dream to reality. Tell yourself the truth and be discriminating with who or what you believe this week.  It's kind of a complex day. Wear gold.


Wednesday: Leo Moon


Now this is more of a typical Leo Moon day. The Moon is happily powered by the Sun in Libra, providing brighter outlooks, more energy and promise.  Uranus forms a trine to the Moon for enlightened ideas and spontaneous gatherings. Brainstorming is favored and inventive, original plans can result.  Venus has one final night of a long stay in Leo, which could be likened to a last night of vacation or a long running performance. Celebrate something. It's an exciting night out, though with Uranus at play, be grounded and aware of your surroundings.  Void of course Moon is from 5:10 pm to 3:50 pm Thursday. Today's color is orange.


Thursday: Leo to Virgo Moon


Void of course Moon in Leo is meant for fun.  Combine work with socializing or games.  The Moon meets Venus just as she moves into Virgo, a place that's a little bit less fun for the planet of love.  Still, it's a great time for a lunch date and flirting. Emotional connections and feelings of connectedness abound. Even business hinges on the one to one relationship today. Venus changes signs at 1:29 pm EDT. The Moon moves to Virgo at 3:50 pm, and these two meet just after 4 pm EDT. Moon and Saturn square puts emphasis on meeting obligations and hammering out potential plans and agreements. Keep travel plans to a minimum now, or keep dates and times flexible, with Mercury retrograde. If you find something is in the way of booking a flight for example, be aware that Mercury retro will be over tomorrow and by Monday, conditions may seem more favorable to you. Venus rules the day, and so today's color is pink.


Friday: Mercury Direct in Libra


The Virgo Moon meets both Jupiter and Mars today. Count your blessings and feel more energized. A physical workout or a walk in nature is called for.  Avoid overindulging. Feel lighter. Business transactions are still under the influence of Mercury retro and also an opposition to foggy Neptune, so tread lightly, but routine things may go really well today.  Mercury stations at 0 degrees of Libra at 10:57 am EDT. Give a little time for adjustments before you go on a spending rampage or book a flight, but know that within a few days more balance will be present. Bring things closer to balance and establish a foundation to build on. Be more organized and have vision today. It's a simple, but sociable, evening with void of course Moon starting at 6:12 pm EDT. Wear brown.


Saturday: Mercury square Saturn

It seems a bit soon, post Mercury retrograde, to push for a decision or certain terms of agreement. Add to that, a long void of course Moon time in Virgo. However Saturn pushes that button today, and even grudgingly in some circumstances, final decisions will be made soon. If you can hold off a couple of more days there are better conditions. But if you've been delaying and putting someone off and know you'll never really get exactly what you want, maybe it's time to act. Saturn is shifting ways of thinking over a long period in Sagittarius, encouraging serious restructuring in life and in thought process and belief systems.  Mercury in Libra is all about creating more fairness and balance.  Try to get through until tomorrow or Monday before committing to a long range course of action. Today's color is navy blue.


Sunday: Libra Moon


At 4:45 am EDT, the Moon breaks out of the twilight zone known as void of course time, and shifts to Libra.  Weighing things out is Libra's work, continuing previously mentioned processes as Mercury and Saturn line up with the Moon.  Announcements and final decisions become even more likely. It's a Sunday, but this sets things up for resolving legal matters or receiving news with anything pending.  Jupiter trine Pluto helps us get beyond cycles of fear. Action comes easier now. Order and organization are priorities. The Sun in Libra is opposite Uranus, accenting self expression and individuality. Also though, unexpected actions can create chaos or be very unsettling.  The zodiac is quite interesting and mixed right now.  Tact is called for and may help you avoid strong opposition, resentment or confrontation.  New Moon is on Monday, and favorable if you're planning fresh starts. Today's color is black. 

 

September 27th to October 4th, 2015


Aries Lunar Eclipse Sunday 10:51 pm energizes two weeks and means continuous readjustment with Mercury retrograde across the zodiac in Libra.   This repost gives a general idea of how the eclipse impacts your sign, but remember your rising sign and planets in your chart stimulated by the eclipse also count. Anything goes this week. Live in the moment as much as possible.


Sunday: Lunar Eclipse in Aries


The Full Moon in Aries is an eclipse happening tonight at 10:51 pm EDT (in some time zones it's on Monday technically). The eclipse affects much more than a day. Mercury retrograde is almost directly opposite, in Libra. Saturn in Sagittarius in harmony with the Full Moon lends some stability while also advising wise action only.  The eclipse signals completions, endings, relocations, and progressive change. All of this is slowed and perhaps complicated by Mercury retrograde. Discovering permanent solutions will be easier mid October and beyond.  The eclipse will prompt experimentation and possibly rash moves. Choice of words is extremely important if the situation calls for clarity and no question. We'll be going back in time to resolve things that need to be set right. But expect this to be a process, not a quick fix.  Uranus is close to the Full Moon, in the same sign, and gives a spontaneous or impulsive nature to eclipse activity.  Eclipse effects are not always predictable. That's part of the package.  Today's color is white. 


Here are some areas to watch for, sign by sign.


Aries: change in role & point of view, philosophical shift

Taurus: health & care of self or others

Gemini: friendship, mentorship, roles in groups

Cancer: career, talents, opportunities, public life

Leo: travel, education, contracts & legal documents

Virgo: shared finances/resources, legal partnerships & psychic experiences

Libra: relationship, roles, partnerships forming or dissolving

Scorpio: routines, health, situations at work & with colleagues

Sagittarius: friendships & fate

Capricorn: home, family/parents, changing living circumstances

Aquarius: communication, technology, travel 

Pisces:  personal developments from the solar eclipse on September 13th with added financial & employment aspect


Monday: Aries Moon opposite Mercury retrograde


With the Moon, freshly eclipsed, opposite Mercury retrograde in Libra and square to Pluto, ready to meet Uranus (the destroyer and re-creator), let struggles go, avoid forcing or trying too hard, and find a peaceful but productive way to spend the day. It's one of those days when you might be better off unplugged. Things are changing so rapidly, and with Mercury retro it's likely there's not enough correct information to act effectively with.  Don't be taken off guard or lose your cool. The upside to this day is the spontaneity, inventiveness, and freedom that the waning Aries Moon brings.  Not everyone will be ready for that kind of energy though. Realize others are struggling to catch their breath during this fiery eclipse time. Be compassionate.  Live without judgment. Find middle ground or allow a brief stalemate, a neutral time, in one on one relationships experiencing conflict. Orange is today's color.


Tuesday: Aries to Taurus Moon


Void of course Moon in Aries from 3:45 am to 2:57 pm EDT is not the time to hammer out an agreement or tackle a long term problem or a sensitive conversation. The exception is a peaceful talk where you have to make an excuse or apology without making too big a deal of it. Avoid any drama. Confusion is characteristic for the void Moon hours, and even more-so than usual today.  Moon in Taurus from 2:57 pm changes the game, meets Mars, and results in burst of productive energy. Create, cook, work outdoors, and enjoy the company of another, even if you're just listening to music or reading side by side. A quiet night might be called for since there's an abundance of wild energy, excitement, and eclipse related news. Today's color is brown.


Wednesday: Sun conjunct Mercury retro, Moon trine Jupiter/Pluto


A trine in the earth signs is constructive. Projects, building, growing, and taking small steps to resolve things are all favored. Break problems down into small pieces. Find satisfaction in getting one thing done well.  Don't expect or ask for a long term decision. It's not time yet. The Sun meets Mercury for socializing, and more deeply for forgiveness and reunions. This can happen randomly, the result of a chance meeting, or intentionally as you reach out to someone.  It's a nice day to travel to a place you always enjoy and take in the sights, smells, and feelings of being there.  Live life fully under this Taurus Moon. See the potential for growth. Today's color is lavender. 


Thursday: Gemini Moon opposes Saturn, squares Mars


The Moon is void of course from 6:44 am to 4:03 pm EDT. Void Moon impacts judgment, the conditions for getting things done, and sense of time. Today may feel like a waiting game. The key is to not expect answers during these hours, and instead do simple tasks that require only your innate skill.  It's a good vacation day.  The Moon moves to Gemini and goes on to square Mars and oppose Saturn in Sagittarius. These are tough conditions for settling arguments or anything oppositional. If you do make an agreement, Saturn's involvement makes the terms very serious. Saturn is kneading the way we look at the whole world, the bigger picture and our individual life philosophies and plans. Freedom and communication rights come into questions during this part of the week. Wear yellow


Friday: Gemini Moon


People will tend to be talkative and sociable. Gemini Moon squares Neptune so avoid gossip and engaging in tales that may or may not be true since this Moon/planet combination involves duplicity.  The Moon harmonizes with mercury retro and the Sun for more good reason to reconnect with friends or former colleagues. Versatile thinking is recommended when problem solving as the Moon squares Jupiter in Virgo. Think beyond the usual, ordinary possibilities and strive to expand your alternatives.  The Moon sextile Uranus is a reason to stay aware and careful tonight. Today's color is blue.


Saturday: Gemini Moon


Overnight hours look precarious with the Moon/Uranus sextile. Things can happen fast, without warning.  It could also lead to social excitement and fun, but keep it within limits.  The Moon and Venus align as Venus spends her last days in festive, glamorous Leo.  Creative thinking is favored as well as dressing up for occasions and doing things up in style. The Moon switches void of course at 1:18 pm, and Cancer Moon arrives at 8:22 pm. Get business and shopping done in the earliest hours of the day. Today's color is pink.


Sunday: Cancer Moon


Of the many Moon aspects today, the opposition to Pluto appears most dominant and is also the last one, at 8:14 pm EDT. On Monday, Cancer Moon will have one more engagement before void of course time and that is with Uranus in Aries. These are strong, challenging angles reflective of last weekend's Aries lunar eclipse. Continuing developments, news and reasons to deal with or problem solve come up. Pluto is about deeper feelings, mysteries, and what's been lying dormant. Old feelings, wounds, or sentiments come up readily today regardless of how other aspects from Mars in Virgo, the Libra Sun and Jupiter in Virgo (to name a few) play out.  Recognize how others are acting and reacting and also allow yourself to feel, without blame or anger if possible. Today's color is black.

Monday: Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon


The void of course Moon is 4:59 am to 8:33 am EDT.  Capricorn Moon in harmony with Jupiter and Neptune boosts creative thinking and actual results.  Change is everywhere, and Capricorn Moon favors productivity. However, Mercury is retrograde and we're approaching the second eclipse of the month. As you settle one thing or finish another, reasons to go back, change the plan or edit due to new information appear again and again.  Still, this can be an industrious day. Allow room and time for future edits and revisions whether it's documents, building plans, or your personal calendar.  Jupiter and Neptune continue to inspire.  Light blue is today's color.


Tuesday: Capricorn Moon, Venus trine Uranus


Two strong forces move through the day. Uranus, planet of destruction, re-creation, and awakenings dominates the day, squaring the Moon and harmonizing with Venus.  Love, passion and attraction are exhilarating.  Spontaneous, charming, and fun, Venus in Leo and Uranus in Aries add spark to an otherwise intense day of business.  Mercury retrograde in Libra requests mediation and aims for consensus with a square to the Moon. Capricorn Moon leans toward detachment and Mercury in Libra wants things to "look good". Things presented with shiny, appealing surfaces should be further investigated.  Do the guts of an agreement match your intentions? Is there enough to back up a decision today or this week? Uranus also squares the Moon for an ever changing outlook, more progressive take, and sudden developments.  Some will scrap all business for a vacation type day. A conference or networking opportunity could be fun and still count as work.  Focusing on people versus systems and details is likely to be a happier, less frustrating path today. Wear green.


Wednesday: Autumnal Equinox


A quiet, contemplative mood seems right during void of course Capricorn Moon 12:00 am to 1:51 am EDT. If the week has been full of burden and responsibility, take time to exercise, do simple errands, meditate or sort what's piling up.  In the midst of so much change, life can get stressful.  Step back and accomplish one thing you can feel good about, and that includes taking care of yourself.  At 4:21 am EDT, the Sun enters Libra and autumn begins. The Sun's first aspect in Libra is a sextile (favorable) to Saturn in Sagittarius.  Thoughts and conversations take on a philosophical tone. Taking responsibility for your self and your own actions is important and the reasons become obvious.  The Aquarius Moon arrives at 1:51 pm and is agreeable with all of the above.  Long term decisions will be made though they may be altered after Mercury retrograde. Leave room for improvement and revision, but know that this is one of the better and more likely days to take action during the retrograde.  Today's color is turquoise. 


Thursday: Aquarius Moon


The Moon aligns with Uranus and Mercury. New ideas are shared, and in some cases acted on quickly.  The retrograde is a fine time to revise as long as you can revisit again after October 9th, if necessary.  Experimentation is favored today. Hypothesize, change the variables and explore freely.  Try to keep decisions and projects flexible with room for improvements, additions or editing.  Get excited about something promising.  Socialize at festive or community oriented events. Mars moves to Virgo, and we'll create products during this next Mars' phase. It's also a time of addressing health concerns. Today's color is silver. 


Friday: Aquarius to Pisces Moon


Today offers challenges as planets square and the Moon is nearly Full. Sunday's lunar eclipse occurs in Aries.  Mars newly in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Much ado about who's responsible and who is not fulfilling obligations as well as delays and unwelcome changes impact our experiences.  The urge to do something now contrasts Mercury retrograde's influence.  Frustration and urgency may be problematic. Attempt patience and bits of progress.  Full Moon brings deadlines, yet the eclipse prepares to shift things, in some cases dramatically.  Do the best you can, and try not to pressure others.  Pisces Moon arrives at 3:44 pm EDT after a void Moon since just after midnight.  Avoid oppositional people and situations. Find your calm place tonight. Today's color is blue. 


Saturday: Pisces Moon


It's natural to feel shaky, uncertain, or thrown off course this weekend. If you don't experience any of that, be the support person for someone else. Pisces Moon is highly sensitive and emotional. Lunar eclipse in Aries is tomorrow, yet events can be occurring already. They are generally life changing, or at least they change life for a period of time and require significant adjustments to mindset and/or routines.  Eclipse events are the things you cannot control or change.  What you choose is how to respond and what path to take. It may not be time to decide right away either.  Maintain calm and surround yourself with supportive people and clam environments.  Music, art, nature and other pleasant things can soothe the soul. Void Moon begins at 12:32 pm EDT. Today's color is light green. 


Sunday: Lunar Eclipse in Aries


The Full Moon in Aries is an eclipse happening tonight at 10:51 pm EDT (in some time zones it's on Monday technically). The eclipse affects much more than a day. Mercury retrograde is almost directly opposite, in Libra. Saturn in Sagittarius in harmony with the Full Moon lends some stability while also advising wise action only.  The eclipse signals completions, endings, relocations, and progressive change. All of this is slowed and perhaps complicated by Mercury retrograde. Discovering permanent solutions will be easier mid October and beyond.  The eclipse will prompt experimentation and possibly rash moves. Choice of words is extremely important if the situation calls for clarity and no question. We'll be going back in time to resolve things that need to be set right. But expect this to be a process, not a quick fix.  Uranus is close to the Full Moon, in the same sign, and gives a spontaneous or impulsive nature to eclipse activity.  Eclipse effects are not always predictable. That's part of the package.  Today's color is white. 


Here are some areas to watch for, sign by sign.


Aries: change in role & point of view, philosophical shift

Taurus: health & care of self or others

Gemini: friendship, mentorship, roles in groups

Cancer: career, talents, opportunities, public life

Leo: travel, education, contracts & legal documents

Virgo: shared finances/resources, legal partnerships &  psychic experiences

Libra: relationship, roles, partnerships forming or dissolving

Scorpio: routines, health, situations at work & with colleagues

Sagittarius: friendships & fate

Capricorn: home, family/parents, changing living circumstances

Aquarius: communication, technology, travel 

Pisces:  personal developments from the solar eclipse on September 13th with added financial & employment aspect

 

September 14th to 20th, 2015

 

Monday: Libra Moon

Libra Moon indicates partnership themes. Meanwhile Mercury is slowing down to begin a retrograde in Libra on Thursday.  It's best not to rush into things you can't easily change your mind about. This includes legal decisions, contracts, and commitments of a more personal nature.  Sunday's eclipse effects develop over the next several days, influencing some serious changes and awakenings.  If you're familiar with tarot cards, compare the Tower card to the effects of the eclipses.  There's a lunar to follow in two weeks so this month and October are significant transitional months.  Today's color is pink.

 

Tuesday: Libra Moon conjunct Mercury

Libra Moon contacts several planets including Mercury, nearly retrograde. Situations develop rapidly post eclipse, and you may find yourself dealing with something you thought was far in the future or said and done a while back.  Partnership themes continue as spouses, associates, and duos of other sorts reach crossroads and must take one path or another. Some agreements will be finalized quickly on a day like this, but may be up for reconsideration and more discussion in a month or more.  Try not to rush things, though Uranus indicates quick responses and the solar eclipse can force decisions too. Venus is in harmony with Libra Moon for dates and social fun.  Today's color is yellow.

 

Wednesday: Scorpio Moon

From 12:22 am to 11:43 am EDT, the Moon is void of course. Delays will be common and may be justified since we tend to be less sharp during these hours.  Turn it on at 11:43 with Scorpio Moon oriented to details and precision.  Focusing on the positive is important though since Scorpio Moon can also bring out obsessive tendencies.  If that's the case, try to lighten up and be less perfectionistic. Jupiter is opposite Neptune this week, exact tomorrow, with healing and heart opening effects. It's important not to believe everything you see and hear though. Listen to your gut. Today's color is maroon.

 

Thursday: Mercury retrograde, Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter opposite Neptune

It's a very significant day of 2015 as Mercury begins a retrograde in Libra while Saturn shifts back into Sagittarius.  Jupiter opposes Neptune heightening creativity, healing, and compassion.  Jupiter was close to the Moon and Sun at eclipse time, so the effects grow and become more clear with this opposition.  Saturn will spend many months in Sagittarius, challenging rules and beliefs especially for those right around the 30 year old marker who experience Saturn's return. Mercury retro in Libra is a time to reflect, ponder questions without deciding for sure, and revisit old business especially things relating to partnership, justice and the law.  On the day Mercury stations retrograde it's best not to make major purchases or decisions.  Today's color is blue.

 

Friday: Moon conjunct Saturn & square Mars

Scorpio Moon is square to Saturn in fixed sign Leo. It's tough to find the weak spots or flexibility. The advantage is that we won't back down or yield too readily.  Compromise is possible only if it makes a great deal of sense so be prepared to state a strong case. Moon in harmony with Virgo Sun is sensible and meticulous, both. Do detail oriented work.  The void of course Moon is 3:49 to ll:32 pm EDT. Wrap important things up before then.  Move into the weekend with relaxation, simple errands, and exercise.  at 11:32 the Moon moves into active Sagittarius and then meets Saturn.  If you've let go of an important obligation it may stare you in the face, prompt a phone call or email, even if it's late evening.  Saturday is also a time to make good on what you promised, even to yourself.  Today's color is black.  

 

Saturday: Sagittarius Moon

This Moon sign is often ideal for adventures and getaways. However, this weekend with Mercury retrograde, Saturn in conjunction and Neptune and Jupiter square to the Moon, it's best to make sure you're not slacking too much.  Escapism could lead to other problems exacerbating.  During Mercury retro, past issues come up for reconsideration. What's fair is what's called for with Mercury in Libra.  Jupiter urges healthy decisions and actions without too much "fluff". Sagittarius Moon is toned down by all of the above. If you're off on a great adventure, make sure things are well taken care of at work or home.  Today's color is navy blue.

 

Sunday: Sagittarius Moon

The Moon aligns with Mercury retrograde, Venus in Leo and Uranus in Aries. There are spontaneous and friendly aspects here and most things fall together more easily.  Traveling back to places you've loved, seeing old friends, and taking a spur of the moment adventure is more in favor than on Saturday.  If you've dealt successfully with an obligation or two, celebrate.  Today's color is purple. 

September 7th to 13th, 2015

Monday: Cancer Moon

Cancer Moon time promotes growth and fertility. Feelings are Cancer's domain and it's natural to be sensitive. That can manifest as moody, caring, nurturing, or feeling the need to retreat. Be kind to yourself today. Fishing and outdoor activities are favored. Appreciate for nature, food, and all the resources available to you. There's an abundance theme as the Moon approaches a sextile to Jupiter in Virgo tonight, after midnight (EDT). Jupiter in Virgo is not excessive, but enjoys the comforts of having enough. Open your eyes to sources you may sometimes overlook. If possible, use the foods, flowers, and other commodities that grow on your land or are available nearby, and see how good it feels to support your self with what's local and plentiful. Today's color is light blue.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon, Mars trine Uranus

The Moon engages with Jupiter, Neptune, Mercury, Pluto, Saturn, Uranus and the Sun. Quite a few possibilities and variables grow from this. Be creative and resourceful as you find what you need. Scheduling changes, communication issues and things from the past that must be faced will cause tension and possibly disagreements. Mars and Uranus are a fiery, volatile combination. Be aware that anything from an argument to actual fire ignites rapidly and unexpectedly with this combination.  Leo and Aries, the signs hosting these two planets, are leaders pushing to the forefront and beyond the established limits.  The Moon and Sun encourage decisiveness and getting logic and emotion to sync as you sort things out.  The Moon is void of course from 9:28 to 10:36 pm EDT, then moves to Leo. Today's color is black.

 

Wednesday: Mercury square Pluto

Mars/Uranus continue to influence a burst of activity, inspiration, movement and also reactions and possible unpleasantness. Growth challenges and sudden action may not be taken well by others or may not be wise. Try to slow down and not leap too quickly into anything you'll regret later. Mercury retrograde is closing in, and there will be rethinking about some things initiated or "finalized" now.  Mercury squares Pluto today in Libra/Capricorn. Questions of what is fair come up and include being fair and responsible to your self. Negotiate something internal and process information before acting on it. Leo Moon provides optimism and the ability to go with the flow and give yourself more time if things are unclear. Today's color is yellow.

 

Thursday: Leo Moon conjunct Venus and Mars

The glamour, passion and generous nature of Leo is magnified as the Moon meets Venus, now direct, and Mars in the lion's sign. Feminine and masculine energies balance with the yin of the Moon in the yang of the Sun's sign.  If chemistry has been off or you've been out of sorts with your partner or suspect some flirtatious goings on, get back to focusing on each other and the entity that is your partnership, the two as one.  This is a great day for a party or celebration of success or love.  Loyalty and heart characterize this 3 way Leo conjunction.  Mercury is supportive from Libra for balance and justice, and Uranus lends energy from Aries for excitement and drive.  Today's color is red.  

 

Friday: Virgo Moon

After a short void of course Moon, Virgo Moon time begins at 9:56 am and we're heading into the solar eclipse weekend. The New Moon eclipse is Sunday at 2:41 am EDT.  Jupiter influences the Virgo Moon now, pushing for growth, opportunities, and focus on health and teamwork that supports the bigger picture.  Contribute to something and feel good about your role today.  Be practical with decisions and changes. Know that the eclipse is a significant shift and related news may come as soon as today. Wear rich shades of brown. 

 

Saturday: Virgo Moon

The solar eclipse forms as Moon and Sun align in Virgo. New Moon in Virgo is amplified by an eclipse this time around. Virgo and Pisces Sun, Moon, and rising sign individuals experience this most personally and profoundly.  Reconsideration comes just before New Moon, though eclipses bring surprises beyond what you expect. Therefore, it may not be a matter of deciding something so much as seeing how events play out through the next several days. As you prepare to initiate things, remember Mercury retrograde is about to begin. Conserve energy today. Do what needs to be done, and take the simplest route. Today's color is black.

 

Sunday: Virgo Solar Eclipse

At 2:41 am the solar eclipse is exact. Beginnings, even unanticipated reasons for change, are in the forecast for days ahead. This may begin with unrest, something unwelcome at least at first, but Virgo eclipse is in the name of growth and higher vibration. Health, service to others and determining your role and purpose are some topics of the push this eclipse gives.  It's a good day/night to clean and set some flexible priorities. Virgo Moon is void from 10:08 to 10:41 pm EDT. Today's color is white.  

 

Eclipse impacts:

Aries: health and routines

Taurus: friendships and fate

Gemini: living arrangements and place

Cancer: communication and learning

Leo: earning and employment

Virgo: self and relationship

Libra: planning and health

Scorpio: friendships and alliances with groups

Sagittarius: career and life purpose

Capricorn: expanding horizons and learning

Aquarius: finances and partnering

Pisces: love, relationship and collaborating

August 31st to September 6th, 2015

Monday: Aries Moon/Sun opposes Neptune


Neptune continues to be a player just post Full Moon. Pisces' ruling planet opposes the Virgo Sun today. There's a Pisces/Virgo cycle that extends into the next New Moon which is a solar eclipse on September 13th. Processes and peaks of this Full Moon receive the Sun's blazing energy. Sun is honest and open while Neptune is hazy and mysterious.  Truths are in question. Romance is exciting. The hidden can be revealed by the Sun's glow.  Mysteries are up for discussion and interesting information could surface.  Being idealistic and seeing things only as you want to see them may get you into predicaments.  Mercury in Libra is opposite the Aries Moon, another extreme related to communication and emotion. Ask yourself if you should believe what you're hearing and seeing. Trust more in experience than words.  Venus is about to meet Mars, heating up relationship and love. Today's color is red.



Tuesday: Venus conjunct Mars, Aries Moon


Aries Moon is in harmony with both Venus and Mars as those two planets meet in Leo. Venus is still retrograde. In a sign of fire and passion, Venus and Mars create chemistry. Romance ignites.  Venus can bring temporary connection while retrograde, however it's too soon to know.  Leo is the sign of strength and heart.  We'll tend to do what we feel most strongly about, and with Aries Moon hesitation is unlikely.   There are other aspects, but all are similar and fiery in nature.  Today's color is gold. 


Wednesday: Aries to Taurus Moon


The Taurus Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter and the Sun in Virgo today. This is favorable for figuring out how to get things accomplished, using hands on, DIY techniques, and showing results for your efforts.  Simple, productive and creative, today is meant for growth.  Today's color is green.


Thursday: Taurus Moon


The Moon squares Mars and Venus in Leo. Strong will, loyalty, and perseverance with relationship are today's themes.  Pluto and the Moon align in Taurus/Capricorn for acting on intuition. Subtle things will influence actions and decisions.  Today's color is pink.


Friday: Gemini Moon


The Moon opposes Saturn at 6:20 am EDT and moves to Gemini at 7:48 am.  The opposition is challenging and may require a permanent agreement or plan.  Opinions will be strong.  Once in Gemini, the Moon squares Jupiter and Neptune. Find some give, a situation or person that can yield and influence a stubborn situation.  Communication that's clear and honest helps things along.  Avoid manipulation and deception in all it's forms. Today's color is blue.


Saturday: Gemini Moon


It's a changeable, active weekend with Gemini Moon until Sunday at 1:40 pm EDT. Activities like buying, selling, writing, meeting new people, and traveling or commuting are amped up. The Moon harmonizes with Venus and Mars in Leo for interesting social or business meetings.  Flirtatious energy is in the air.  Things may happen or develop very quickly.  Void Moon begins at 7:04 pm. Today's color is yellow.


Sunday: Gemini to Cancer Moon


The void of course Moon gives way to Cancer Moon at 1:40 pm EDT. Gemini Moon hours may be confusing, foggy or unproductive.  At 1:40 pm a home/family focus shifts the weekend, perhaps slowing things down. The Sun aligns with Pluto in Virgo/Capricorn, and a grounding influence takes place.  See matters realistically and be practical.  Venus moves direct in Leo at 4:29 am.  The days ahead are better for cosmetic, aesthetic changes.  Wait a couple of days for any significant appearance change.  Today's color is white.

August 24th to August 30th, 2015

Monday: Sagittarius Moon


Moon aligns with Venus in Leo and Uranus in Aries. Dynamic energy, movement and change, and quickening pace characterize these trines.  As the Moon moves into a square with Mercury in Virgo we're challenged to think things out in detail and act in the moment. Sharp senses, a sense of freedom and attention to organization are all required and that's a tricky balance to create. Sagittarius Moon is about removing limitations including ways of thinking that can get in the way. Be versatile and open minded. Venus is still retrograde and can lead to forgiveness and moving on from past injustices in relationship.  A change in attitude could come today. Void Moon begins at 6:04 pm to 12:22 am EDT Tuesday. During those hours avoid unproductive discussions. People may be unreliable in terms of showing up or being on time. Yellow is today's color.


Tuesday: Capricorn Moon


The Moon travels the Capricorn path from 12:22 am EDT until the wee hours of Thursday. Progress is the keyword as Moon lines up with Virgo Sun and Jupiter, Neptune in Pisces and meets Pluto before midnight. With the prevalence of earth sign energy, do rather than just plan or discuss.  Industrious, practical, methodical activities are favored.  Mercury and Saturn are in harmony Wednesday for significant decisions, business, and settling all sorts of things.  Those pending matters can take shape today. Be proactive.  The Sun/Jupiter conjunction in Virgo, also tomorrow, is a blessing and relates to health, service, prosperity, and resources.  Resourceful is a good description of how to best move during this Capricorn Moon. Manifest.  Today's color is green.


Wednesday: Sun conjunct Jupiter, Mercury sextile Saturn


Read Tuesday's forecast. As the Full Moon approaches, Saturday afternoon in Pisces, conclusions and completions come.  Today is all about that, and you may not have to wait for the weekend to know outcomes, agree and act on what's taking shape.  Thoughtful, beneficial, flowing, and communicative are all words for today's astrological aspects. There is one square between the Moon and Uranus, and a tug between traditional and progressive thinking arises. Consider all possibilities.  Conservative, sensible decisions are more likely as Saturn in Scorpio has an influence this week, but an unexpected offer could change your mind.  Today's color is a rich earthy brown. 


Thursday: Aquarius Moon


We're into the Full Moon zone as Saturday approaches.  The waxing Moon is in Aquarius as of 4:03 am EDT and is only void of course from 3:28 am until then.  Capricorn Moon, Saturn and Mercury align in the earliest hours. Pieces fall together, and ways to accomplish become evident.  Aquarius Moon has no significant aspects until the oppositions come Friday, with Venus and Mars. Considering those two planets, passions will be strong today and tomorrow, impacting relationship life and matters of children and creative license.  Today's color is blue.


Friday: Aquarius Moon opposes Venus and Mars


Matters of the heart and our connection to community are today's focus.  Feeling supported, or on the other hand isolated and needing companionship, will be a common theme.  In relationship, see reason to compromise and harmonize.  Leo and Aquarius are most impacted in the love arena and may also seek harmony with creative partners.  Gemini and Sagittarius may be trying to figure some of that out with friends or newer romantic partners.  The Moon's near Full so feelings and events peak and hit extremes. Aquarius and Leo fixed nature is evident and opinions are likely to come across strongly.  Today's color is pink.


Saturday: Pisces Full Moon


This Full Moon is interesting with a variety of planetary influences. Across from the Sun and Jupiter conjunction, Full Moon brings Virgo themes through and full circle.  Opportunities and developments from earlier this week reach a new phase or completion.  Pisces is fluid though, so it may seem things are ever changing.  Being in flux is not always easy, especially for those who are more comfortable when settled and stable.  Do grounding things like chores or exercise to relieve stress related to change or uncertainty. Pisces Full Moon meets Neptune bringing elements of truth and responsibility into question.  Highly creative, but with the ability to manipulate or deceive, this conjunction is a good time to see things for what they are rather than what you wish they were.  The extremes of intuition versus poor judgement are present. Saturn in Scorpio squared the Aquarius Moon hours before Full Moon and my grandmother's phrase, "A word to the wise is sufficient comes to mind." Caution where trust is concerned, thoughtfulness and pace through uncertainty, those are my words to you, the wise.  Pisces Moon is romantic at best. Today's color is the silver. 


Sunday: Pisces Moon


The Full Moon weekend continues as the Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. This sextile is insightful, meditative, and encourages us to realize and awaken to what's been there all along.  It's a sensitive, spiritual time. Light blue resonates today. 

 

August 17th to 23rd, 2015

Monday: Virgo to Libra Moon


The Moon is in Virgo, solid until 1:16 pm EDT and then transitioning through void of course time until 4:23 pm. During Virgo's hours, there's a sextile to Saturn in Scorpio. Practical, conservative solutions, trouble shooting, and helping out elders and those who need strong advisement is favored.  Once the Moon is void of course, avoid major decisions and conversations you need results from. This can be a good time to be excused from something you didn't or cannot follow through on. Make an honest excuse if need be.  Libra Moon comes at 4:23 pm EDT, and overnight the Moon will relate to Mars in Leo. Social activity picks up early this week. Today's color is lavender.


Tuesday: Libra Moon


The Moon is in harmony with Mars, active and outgoing in Libra and Leo.  Aim for balanced, fair resolutions.  Discussions will be passionate and may be heated. Stay calm and avoid arguments.  It's a day to consider sides of a story and bring up points of contention for review.  Resist the urge to jump to conclusions.  There's friendly energy too and motivation to get started or continue as we move through 1st quarter Moon.  The Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn at 7:30 pm EDT. Fair, concrete actions and solutions require effort but are possible.  The debate may be more internal as you consider different feelings and opinions of your own.  Today's color is white.


Wednesday: Libra Moon, Venus trine Uranus


Relationships and quick changes or news surrounding love lives is in the forecast as Venus in heart centered Leo aligns with Uranus in brave Aries and with Libra Moon.  Some of these changes may be impulsive or sudden due to Uranus's nature particularly in fiery Aries.  It's also exciting and passionate on the positive side.  Hope for the best if you hear others' status changes or announcements.  There's a lucky aspect to Venus in Leo, though Venus is retrograde and long term effects won't be known for a while.   Consider Venus retro as you make promises or reunite. This could be a quick fling, a late summer romance, or perhaps it will unfold to be much more. Try to be in the moment rather than have grand expectations.  Sun and Moon are in harmony, which help get head and heart in sync. V.o.c. Moon begins at 10:59 pm EDT. Today's color is rose (pink red blend is ideal).


Thursday: Libra to Scorpio Moon


Void of course Moon lasts until 5:24 am, then Scorpio Moon takes over.  The Moon aligns with Jupiter newly in Virgo. Expand your way of thinking and of doing things. Alternatives around health, finances, and pet care are favored.  Jupiter in Virgo sets out to open new possibilities this year into 2016.  If you're ready, adopt a healthy habit or improve a method you were entrenched in.  Mars and Neptune also aspect the Scorpio Moon, with opposite effects.  Neptune lends imagination and a meditative side while Mars and the Moon engage in a potentially stubborn battle in fixed Leo/Scorpio.  Seek solitude if you're feeling heat from inside or elsewhere. Have a gentle night.  Today's color is maroon.


Friday: Moon square Venus, Sun square Saturn


With important things pending, much patience and wisdom is called for today. The two squares require effort and thoughtfulness as you navigate relationship "goings on" and other business transactions. Leo is quite involved with the Sun and Venus in the lion's sign. Scorpio is highlighted too as Saturn and Moon act there. Both are fixed signs and we'll need opinions and plans to be supported emotionally and logically. It all needs to come together or nothing will result.  It's not an easy day to convince, sway or change but it is possible with patience and care.  Today's color is black. 


Saturday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon


The Moon meets Saturn and relates to Friday's forecast.  Aim for long term solutions.  Mercury in Virgo favors sensible outcomes. The Sun squares Scorpio Moon and later Jupiter squares Sagittarius Moon. This is more to be negotiated and worked through.  The void Moon is 3:31 pm to 4:41 pm EDT. Check out a bit then, step back, and let the hour pass without action.  During Scorpio Moon, plant, feed the garden and natural environment and let it nourish you also. It's a favorable day for fishing and creating abundance.  Wear indigo blue today. 


Sunday: Sagittarius Moon, Sun in Virgo


Sun shifts to Virgo for the final phase of summer at 6:37 am EDT. Babies born before that are Leos. Sagittarius Moon squares Neptune and events are not quite reliable. Expect change and anticipate that not everyone will be pleased if things are canceled, delayed or there are no shows.  The Moon and Mars align for competition, games, and dynamic energy.  Today's color is red.

 

Robin's Zodiac Zone  August 10th or August 16th, 2015

 

Monday: Cancer Moon


The Moon is void of course from 7:45 am to 8:08 am EDT and then in Cancer. The Moon wanes until Friday morning when New Moon in Leo occurs at 10:53 am. In the early hours the Moon aligns with Venus and Jupiter, and at 6:10 pm EDT with Mercury in Virgo. Jupiter's last move in Leo is a trine with Gemini Moon for networking, healing relationships possibly with siblings, and keeping open communication. Nurture relationships and personal priorities today.  With many harmonious alignments, things may go more easily than expected. Have hope, move gently, and communicate without criticism.  Feelings are important to keep in mind.  Today's color is light blue.


Tuesday: Cancer Moon, Jupiter in Virgo


Jupiter moves to Virgo at 7:11 am. Virgo is Jupiter's benefactor for an entire year, and for all of us growth and healing in the areas of health, community service, and flexible problem solving are some themes. Cancer Moon aligns with Neptune, opposes Pluto and squares Uranus. The impacts are quite mixed and patterns crop up. Some may not be pleasant, may involve family and could relate to honesty and direct communication versus hiding or being passive.  However, this is a chance to retrace and find better, healthier results.  Stay grounded and thoughtful. Channel emotions to creativity. Today's color is blue.


Wednesday: Mercury opposes Neptune, Cancer to Leo Moon


The Moon is void from 1:44 pm to 4:52 pm and then moves to Leo. Prior to that time, Saturn has a say from Scorpio. Though decisive action may be called for, give much consideration and avoid the void hours for the most important conversations or decisions.  Mercury opposite Neptune is reason to be curious and question information or character.  The Moon meets Mars in Leo at 10:00 pm EDT. This may amp up matters of the heart and stir passions.  Today's color is purple. 


Thursday: Sun trine Uranus


Leo Moon and Sun trine Uranus during the next two days.  Uranus has a sudden and unpredictable nature. This can mean better than expected outcomes, yet it's also reason to stay aware on observant.  Avoid anything that could cause accidents, fires, or outbursts.  This day before New Moon is for clearing out. Weed the garden, let go of things you don't need, allow feelings to sort and minds to change.  This day can certainly go either way, but Leo optimism should be strong. Today's color is gold.


Friday: New Moon in Leo


New Moon is at 10:53 am EDT, near Venus and of course in conjunction with the Sun. All Leo traits are emphasized including strength, heart, passion for life, optimism, playfulness, and leadership.  Uranus is trine to the Moon from Aries, for initiative, sudden change, and turns of events. A lucky influence overall, this New Moon is for opening the heart and following your passions.  Venus retrograde may influence reconnections with dear ones in your life.  Today's color is white.


Saturday: Virgo Moon, Sun conjunct Venus in Leo


New Moon effects are powerful now, and the Sun/Leo meeting gives strength to reunions, heart centered matters, relationships, forgiveness and also news of change.  The void Moon is 12:36 am to 3:46 am EDT and then it's Virgo Moon until Monday.  Mercury and Pluto align for earth energy in problem solving and dealing with feelings from the past productively.  Today's color is pink.


Sunday: Virgo Moon


Keep in mind that Friday's New Moon was strong and positive. That energy is still at play for a new cycle, changes, decisions, and forward movement.  Mercury, Pluto and the Moon favor practical approaches right now. Be grounded in action and the nuts and bolts of things.  Today's color is navy blue.

August 3rd to August 9th, 2015

Monday: Jupiter square Saturn

 
Jupiter in Leo challenges Saturn newly direct in Scorpio. Debate about creative license, permanent changes, and things that have been delayed or uncertain comes up. Saturn and Mars aspect this Pisces Moon as well. Aim for long term results and realize the impact of actions taken now.  Pisces Moon is a vulnerable time, yet these planets mean business. Personal power, strong discretion, and an open the mind help.  Pisces Moon void at 4:35 pm and Aries Moon arrives at 7:24 pm.  Today's color is red.
 
Tuesday: Aries Moon
 
The Moon and Sun are in harmony in fire signs. Venus meets Jupiter in Leo with a big, colorful splash.  All of this helps with festivity, optimism, and happy interactions.  Venus and Jupiter favor Leo so strongly, create luck and expansion that also pleases Aries and Sagittarius and Aquarius in long term relationship. Venus is retrograde, so cosmetic procedures are not in favor. However, love is in the air especially if it's a renewal or reunion.  Try things out and see how it goes since during a retrograde things may change shortly after.  The Aries Moon squares Pluto for undercurrents and subtle actions that speak volumes.  Use intuition and keep expectations simple.  Enjoy the moments.  Today's color is orange. 
 
Wednesday: Moon conjunct Uranus, Venus square Saturn
 
A multitude of influences make for a varied day.  Aries Moon harmonizes with planets in Leo and meets Uranus. Spontaneity may be required.  Try not to overdo things.  Enjoy meeting, networking, and being with people generally. It's an extrovert's day.  Saturn and Venus square and relationship decisions and commitments are likely.  Get a handle on what's going on in your love life.  Consider how you can improve things (or end affairs), and communicate honestly.  At 7:29 pm EDT the Moon is void until 9:29 pm. Simple, routine things are the way to go then. Taurus Moon tonight values the comforts of life. Abundance will be celebrated and appreciated in whatever forms it may appear.  Today's color is pink.
 
Thursday: Taurus Moon
 
Mercury meets Venus. Relationship conversations and decisions peak. Many of the results will be happy, and announcements will result. Mercury also interacts with Saturn. This square, once worked through, may resolve long standing issues. However, it will take patience and perseverance.  Mercury is assertive and creative in Leo. Saturn is determined in Scorpio. Combine those forces and find agreements that last.  Mars trines Saturn and that could be detrimental. Strong arming things to force them into place may have undesirable long term effects.  Thoughtful, well considered action is called for. Today's color is yellow. 
 
Friday: Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Mercury to Virgo
 
Mercury changes signs at 3:15 pm EDT, but first there's a final Leo type meeting with Jupiter. Ideas, news, and discussion about expanding creative ventures, determining educational plans, solving matters related to children, and throwing magnificent parties and events is timed well by these two planets in the Lion's sign. Taurus Moon favors longevity and results for anything you engage in today. Make decisions you want to last.  Be loyal and speak the truth. At 3:15 pm Mercury shifts to Virgo for pragmatic thinking, healthy changes, and putting ideas in action.  Can you experiment with something in the next weeks, for example changing a method or routine to see if there's a better or healthier way?  Today's color is black. 
 
Saturday: Gemini Moon
 
The Moon is void of course for less than an hour before moving to Gemini at 1:40 am EDT. Mars moves to Leo at 7:42 pm EDT. A handful of planets change signs during this part of the lunar cycle, and the others are retrograde! The result is feeling of flux, transition, and sometimes uncertainty. It can also be exciting.  Get rid of what you don't need between  now Friday the 14th, when we have a Leo New Moon. Make space in your mind, living quarters, or anywhere else things could use refreshing.  Gemini Moon has "air" quality. Freshen stagnant energy. Challenging squares today will make us think, debate, and negotiate. Be flexible and take your time. Mars in Leo is abundant with physical and expressive energy for the next few weeks. Today's color is gold. 
 
 
Sunday: Gemini Moon
 
Gemini Moon aligns with Leo Sun and Uranus in Aries. It's a social, spontaneous, and surprising combination.  Stay very aware that things can happen quickly and without notice. The Sun's effect should lean that in a happy direction though.  Play like a kid. Today's color is orange.

July 27th to August 2, 2015

Monday: Sagittarius Moon


An unpredictable Monday as Sagittarius Moon squares Neptune and forms a trine to Uranus retrograde. Trines indicate ease, but in these fire signs there's a volatile aspect. Go with what you know rather than being too adventurous or taking unnecessary risks. Neptune relates to imagination and sometimes deception. People may misrepresent, intending to deceive or convince.  Back off from people who push and question information. Make sure what you engage in is valid and true.  Unique and original thinking can be an upside during this Sagittarius Moon. But remain skeptical and wise rather than naive and fooled.  Today's color is white. 


Tuesday: Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon


Sagittarius Moon aligns with Jupiter in Leo for big thinking and bold action. There's a philosophical spirit as Jupiter is also Sagittarius's planet ruling higher education and global perspective. At 9:36 am EDT, the Moon moves void of course and during this time draw upon your best possible judgment and act with thought and information to support your decisions.  It's still not a day to take unusual risks or gamble considering yesterday's activity is still relevant.  Void of course Moon also plays a role, from 9:36 am to 2:47 pm. Perhaps let something sit and simmer before you decide. Jupiter in Leo is generous and magnificent. Sagittarius Moon is free thinking. We could tend to go overboard. With a little time, see if your enthusiasm for something continues to bubble.  Capricorn Moon arrives at 2:47 pm and aligns with Venus retrograde at 3:44 pm EDT. Reach an agreement this afternoon, as a couple or partners.  This is a good time to have an overdue discussion about how to proceed.  Overall, it's an agreeable day. Wear green.


Wednesday: Full Moon warmup, Moon conjunct Pluto


The Full Moon, a Blue Moon, comes Friday morning. The Moon is in Capricorn, industrious and traditional, in harmony with Neptune and together with Pluto. Neptune adds imagination to tasks and projects as things come due. Complete and celebrate a success in the next two days. There's a subtle note from Pluto that may keep us inwardly focused. It's a good day to take care of personal and professional things and get the job done.  The later hours will be influenced by Thursday's outlook so read ahead. Today's color is black. 


Thursday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon, Moon opposes Mars


The Capricorn Moon is out of sorts with Uranus retrograde in Aries and Mars is opposite in Cancer.  Aggravations may be hard to deal with. There's definite conflict between the tried and true and new methods.  Potential for arguments and frustrations of old business is high as Saturn retro also aspects the Moon. This Full Moon, Friday morning, is meant for celebrations, originality, and resolving things. Try to work through the tough stuff. Moon is void of course from 2:50 pm to 5:40 pm EDT and then in Aquarius.  Moon is full at 6:43 am, the 2nd time this month which is why we call it a Blue Moon. Meet a deadline or obligation so you can enjoy it. Today's color is turquoise.


Friday: Full Moon in Aquarius, Mercury opposes the Moon


Mercury is opposite this Blue Moon, and tomorrow Venus and Jupiter also in Leo exert their Full Moon influence.  Agreements and peaceful resolutions are favored.  Leo/Aquarius energies dominate for a social, extroverted, community oriented weekend.  Venus moves back into Leo at 11:27 am during her retrograde time. One thing strongly advised against is cosmetic procedures, surgery or tattooing.  Avoid the urge to make that sort of change. Aquarius and Leo, this is a lovely full moon for love and relationship. Libra and Aries, friendship and luck are favored for you.  Today's color is white.


Saturday: Moon square Saturn, Moon trine Uranus


A trio of retrograde planets are active during this Full Moon time. Uranus, Saturn, and Venus retrograde and a fixed sign Full Moon equal return to prior business for long term plans and solutions. There may be a strange mix of new developments, finalizing, and trying to please everyone. News usually comes with Full Moons, and this month I do expect many completions but also pending action delayed for a few weeks perhaps.  Focusing on Venus and Jupiter in Leo, celebrations are favored and maybe other business needs to be put aside so it doesn't spoil someone's event.  Try to enjoy people, open your mind to something you didn't expect, and act in good faith.  It's possible something can be put in the past and moved on from once and for all during this Blue Moon. From 6:02 to 6:36 pm the Moon is void of course. This Pisces Moon night is sentimental, creative and influenced by Venus, planet of romance and love. Today's color is blue.


Sunday: Pisces Moon, Mercury trine Uranus


Interesting information and ideas come up as Mercury in creative Leo and Uranus retrograde in trailblazing Aries combine.  A crazy idea might be just the thing. Pisces Moon has a soft, romantic influence, quite different from those two planets but when you put it together, there may be ease in adjusting or accepting what's new. The Moon meets magical Neptune and aligns with mysterious Pluto. Tune into what's beyond or out of reach of the 5 senses. Intuition heightens.  Instincts are your guide.  Saturn turns direct in Scorpio at 1:53 am. It might feel like a dramatic pause as this planet stations for a bit before actually moving degrees forward. Today's color is green. 

 

July 20th to 26th, 2015

 

Monday: Virgo Moon

 

Virgo Moon aligns with Mercury, Mars and Pluto. Decisions and resolutions come. Things may fall together more easily than expected. Moon and Pluto occupy earth signs for practicality while Mars and Mercury in Cancer tap into the watery nature of emotion and sensitivity. The downside is Mars can be defensive or actively avoid while in Cancer. Muster up the courage to deal honestly and effectively.  Between New and Full Moon, this is the time to sort something out, get things started and nurture what's in progress. Virgo and Cancer have helpful, caring traits we can draw upon in ourselves or receive from others today. Wear navy blue.

 

Tuesday: Sun trine Saturn

 

The Cancer Sun and Saturn retrograde in Scorpio line up for decisions that have been long in progress. Information recently received may be part of agreements and solutions reached now. 

Void of course Moon hours are 6:07 to 9:23 am in Virgo, and then Libra Moon creates the conditions for negotiating, finalizing, and seeing another perspective.  News and announcements are probable as a result, whether this comes today, yesterday or sometimes during this week.  If there's a return to resolve "old business", Sun and Saturn lend energy to family, property related and health matters. Today's color is black. 

 

Wednesday: Sun in Leo, Mercury trine Saturn

 

A continuation of yesterday's business, Mercury aligns with Saturn for final decisions and announcements.  There's an emotional tone since both are in water signs. Topics of sensitive nature and a gentle approach go together.  Avoid harsh or insensitive comments. Saturn is retrograde so some decisions may take a bit longer to go into full effect.  Take a long term outlook and be able to see beyond the moment.  Patience might be required. The Moon is in Libra today for weighing options and dealing fairly. The Sun moves to Leo at 11:30 pm EDT for the height of summer. Today's color is yellow. 

 

Thursday: Mercury to Leo, Sun conjunct Mercury

 

More news in the forecast as the Sun and Mercury meet in an expressive conjunction.  Mercury moves to Leo at 8:14 am. Jupiter and Venus in Leo harmonize with Libra Moon, and though the Moon is out of sorts with or challenged by Pluto and Uranus, the positive energy is stronger than the heaviness. Courage and strength may be required, but the outlook is good for mustering up the energy needed.  Partnership, marriage, creative projects, and matters revolving around children are highlighted for best efforts and positive outcomes today. The Sun and Mercury in Leo favor performances, honest declarations, opening up communication, and announcing good news. Void of course Moon time begins at 2:12 pm, and Scorpio Moon moves in at 10:07 pm EDT. Today's color is gold.

 

Friday: Scorpio Moon

 

The Moon in Scorpio is quite different from Sun and Mercury in Leo. Two squares lend stubborn streaks, but sometimes being fixed is a good thing.  We won't back down or give in easily with aspects like this.  People will tend to hold their ground, their boundaries, and be tough to convince otherwise.  That may be advantageous as Neptune harmonizes with the Moon, subtly influencing and trying to soften out the sharp points.  The problem can be escapism or lack of full honesty.  Trust your instincts and don't give in too easily when you have previously decided what's best in a situation (or relationship).  Today's color is indigo blue. 

 

Saturday: Venus Retrograde, Mars square Uranus

 

Mars/Uranus action may remind us of and relates to the New Moon

of July 15th. If you were challenged about a week and a half ago, this could be a sequel.  Know what calms you, and take care of your emotional life in healthy ways.  The Moon aligns with Pluto and Mars for deep thought before responses. Effectively put energy, even anger, into creative process.  Venus retrogrades in Virgo for one week beginning at 5:29 am EDT. Venus will be back in Leo on July 31st. Virgo, notice any subtle (or louder) relationship rumblings that may include a chance to revisit love, reconsider a relationship decision or be more subtle in your desires. Possibly your relationship needs more attention and time.  Late August Virgos and Leos may notice this most now. Today's color is maroon.

 

Sunday: Uranus Retrograde, Sagittarius Moon

 

Sunday's color is purple.

 

July 13th to 19th, 2015

 

Monday: Gemini Moon, Mercury trine Neptune


Versatile thinking, problem solving and creative process are favored under Gemini Moon with Mercury and Neptune aligned in the water signs. This balance of intellect and emotion is great for writers.  Combine words and images or use imagery in convincing ways. This is an asset to marketing strategies. In your personal life, brainstorm and reach solutions that take feelings into strong consideration.  The Moon in Gemini and planets in Leo bring out expressive, extroverted traits.  This includes humor, friendliness and willingness to jump in. It's a great day to entertain.  Today's color is light blue. 


Tuesday: Gemini to Cancer Moon, Venus square Saturn


Venus is about to leave Leo, and today forms a square to Saturn retrograde. These planets strongly suggest we get a handle on relationships, take responsibility for our commitments and bring more balance to our interactions with those closest to us. Venus is passionate and loyal in Leo and Saturn means business in Scorpio. On this day before New Moon, consider how you want to engage in relationship. It'll be a make or break time for some. Revisit promises you've made and see if you can make good on them or must you break the contract. In fixed signs, there will be long term implications and feelings from what's decided now. The Moon is in harmony with Neptune. The potential problem here is escaping rather than dealing up front with strength and courage.  Cancer Moon from 2:14 am into Thursday morning. Pink is today's color. 


Wednesday: New Moon in Cancer


New Moon in Cancer is at 9:24 pm. The hours before that are for planning and reconsideration. This is a challenging New Moon with Mars opposite Pluto conjunct the Moon and Mercury (this is a simplified way of saying there is concentrated energy in Capricorn and Cancer). It's probable many will face shadow aspects of the self or of situations. Mars in Cancer doesn't know how to deal with anger, passion, and other strong energy and may suppress it. That rarely has a good result! Channel darkness into creativity. Communicate with spirit in whatever way makes sense to you. Look beyond the physical world for guidance if this is a difficult time.  Cancer relates to home, ancestry, family, and emotion. This is the sign of the Moon. It's likely to be a  highly emotional, sensitive time. Letting go of a suppressed secret or releasing a strong emotion in a productive, positive way could be a very healing experience. This New Moon makes way for exactly that. Move lightly and be nurturing wherever you can. Today's color is white.


Thursday: Leo Moon, Mercury conjunct Mars


Yesterday's New Moon themes ring through the week. Leo Moon moving in at 10:15 am is most likely to be helpful since Cancer is heavier and more emotional.  Void Moon is 7:24 am to 10:15 am EDT. Avoid major statements and decisions then.  The Moon and Mars connect at 12:04 am & Moon trines Saturn in Scorpio at 7:24 am EDT.  This activates us for what must be done, even if we're moving reluctantly.  Our emotional bodies, beyond the physical and mental, may be hurting or just vibrating with release.  I suspect there'll be more tears than usual this week, but hopefully they'll be tears of joy or finality that help clear us for new experiences.  Surrender and purge are two words that come to mind for this New Moon. Leo Moon encourages more playfulness, lighter hearts, and social energy. Today's color is purple. 


Friday: Leo Moon


If the week's been murky, fogging the brain, or you've been under the weather in any way, Leo Moon is freer and clearer today. Plan something fun. For the most part, the weekend ahead is meant for celebrations and festivities. Today is great for the party hosts to get caught up in fun preparations and for everyone else to pull themselves "up by the flip flop straps" since it's summer-or maybe the swimsuit straps, and do something active and fun. Or at least try to see the best in things, silver linings and shining possibilities. Today's color is orange. 


Saturday: Leo to Virgo Moon, Venus to Virgo, Moon conjunct Jupiter and Venus


It's another peak in the bold, bright Jupiter/Venus in Leo time. This period is ending soon and this weekend may be a culmination of things that were building for a year or more. It's a fine day for a wedding or other special event.  Count your blessings. Uranus is active with the Moon and Mercury which does lend a surprising, spontaneous or sudden aspect. Hopefully this will be a good turn or events, but in some cases flexibility and quick thinking will be called for. Venus moves to Virgo at 6:38 pm and the Moon shifts to that same sign at 8:47 pm.  It's a transitional day prior to Venus retrograde which begins on the 25th.  Venus will move back to Leo on the 31st, a time that may mimic or recall this particular day.  Today's color is rose (pink or a soft red will do).



 

July 6th to 12th, 2015

Monday: Pisces Moon, Sun opposite Pluto


The Sun opposes Pluto and it's a good idea to question your motives or the intentions of someone else.  This opposition can lead to unreasonable or unwise action or speech.  Pluto is the significant player today as this planet of the hidden also aspects the Moon. The surface of things and what's deeper and behind our actions may be very different.  Some will put on a brave or happy face even if underneath there's anger or sadness.  With a Pisces Moon and Sun in Cancer, it's likely to be more passive than outwardly aggressive. Yet it's still something to be aware or careful of. Notice this in yourself and question the possibility it's arising in your interactions with others too. Moon and Sun are in harmony for water signs traits, water sports and pool/boat business, and for fishing, planting and resourcing things you need. Wear light blue.


Tuesday: Pisces to Aries Moon


From 10:36 am to 12:38 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course. Slow down and put off major purchases or transactions during those hours. The Moon squares Mercury in Gemini (last day) and is in harmony with Saturn retrograde in Scorpio. Adapt a plan or project based on the present circumstances. Things that shifted, since spring for example, need a second or third look now.  Today could feel a bit like a Mercury retrograde as you resolve old business and return for more thought or revision, but it's really Saturn back in Scorpio and the last day of Mercury in Gemini at work.  Aries Moon from 12:38 pm on gives the impulse to move on things.  Today's color is red. 


Wednesday: Mercury in Cancer


The thinking planet moves to Cancer at 2:52 pm.  It's an introspective and personal placement for Mercury until July 23rd.  Problem solving around family, household, and care of children or the elderly activates.  Intuition is heightened and we'll move a bit slower or more thoughtfully than during Mercury in lightning-like Gemini. Aries Moon squares planets in Cancer and Capricorn and meets Uranus. This can be challenging and relate to things that could never have been foreseen.  Some of this will also be old patterns resurfacing with family, career, or home life.  Mars aligns with Neptune and helps with intuition. Trust your instincts. This is more about what you feel in your bones that what you see with your eyes.  Do not trust foolishly or act in anger.  Cool the Aries fires with calm presence of mind.  Today's color is orange.


Thursday: Aries to Taurus Moon


The Aries Moon is void of course from 9:47 am to 3:49 pm EDT and then in Taurus.  Moon in harmony with Jupiter and Venus colors the day brightly. Energy level, stamina, and optimism are the benefits.  Socialize, be active, and immerse in your passions.  The Taurus Moon aligns with Mercury in Cancer in the evening.  This favors smaller gatherings at home or in good restaurants, centered around food, gardening or by the lake, pool or sea. Enjoy life, and maybe a sweet conversation, tonight. Wear green. 


Friday: Taurus Moon


The Moon of long term results, commitments, and promises, Taurus Moon  is in harmony with Pluto, Mars and Neptune.  Reap what you've sown. See the results and products of your efforts. Stay focused, show loyalty, and build on a foundation.  Trust where it's been earned and not if you feel unsure.  Act with certainty.  Today's color is pink.

Saturday: Taurus to Gemini Moon


Taurus Moon opposes Saturn retrograde in Scorpio, and squares Jupiter and Venus in Leo. These angles require effort and attention. Some of this will be old business resurfacing for more permanent solutions. The squares to planets in Leo are more about how and how much to expand, open the heart, and move forward dynamically, with passion and motivation. Taurus Moon time can be reluctant or more fixed in ways, but planets in Leo are encouraging, optimistic, and generous.  Find your way to move past "problems" and into long term plans and solutions.  The Moon is void from 5:52 to 8:16 pm EDT and then in Gemini for a social night. Wear yellow. 


Sunday:  Gemini Moon, Sun square Uranus


Keep interactions balanced and actions thoughtful during this Gemini Moon with the Cancer Sun square unpredictable Uranus.  It's a good time to curb impulses, slow down, and use logic. Gemini Moon squares Neptune, the escapist planet. Distinguish reality from imagination.  It could be a good day to immerse in creative and inventive ideas.  Stay grounded. Substances that alter the mind add to problems or misconceptions today.  Today's color is blue.

 

 

June 29th to July 5th, 2015

 

Monday: Venus trine Uranus


Venus, planet of beauty, pleasure and relationship, is active in Leo. Today, Uranus aligns with Venus for sudden news about partnerships forming or dissolving.  This could also trigger love at first sight. Happening in the fire signs, Aries and Leo, passion and impulse rule our love lives at least for the moment. So close to Full Moon, when Venus and Jupiter meet, this week is likely to bring announcements of engagement and marriage.  Last week's Supreme Court ruling is interestingly timed and may add to this astrological energy.  Sagittarius Moon will align directly with these planets tomorrow. Today's color is red.


Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon


The Moon is nearly Full so this is a time of completions, due dates, and news.  Sag Moon is dynamic in harmony with Venus, Uranus, and Jupiter. The wheels are in motion! Sagittarius relates to movement, travel, and a worldly perspective.  This is a very fortunate day, especially for the fire signs, Leo, Aries and Sag. Great aspects for career changes, financial investments and other upgrades for all signs including Cancer and Scorpio who are favored for positive outcomes in those areas.  Mercury is opposite the Moon for ability to compromise and see another point of view. That helps with cooperative decision making. Today's color is purple. 


Wednesday: Capricorn Full Moon, Venus conjunct Jupiter 


The Moon moves to Capricorn at 5:11 am and is Full at 10:20 pm EDT. It's an auspicious day as Venus and Jupiter meet in Leo, favoring creativity, partnership and children. A Full Moon of celebrations, this one is also about structure and finalizing things related to career (Scorpio, Aries), personal goals and partnership (Capricorn, Cancer), and stability through employment and housing (Libra, Sagittarius). The suggested signs are not the only ones who may experience any of the above.  Dual themes of structure and pleasure run through this entire week.  Act on things that can provide stability and security while enjoying all life has to offer, the love, growth, and awakening moments that Jupiter and Venus set up. Watch the video above for some other commentary on this unique Full Moon. Today's color is gold.


Thursday: Full Moon in Capricorn


The Moon meets Pluto. Mercury and Uranus align in Gemini/Aries. This is a newsworthy and eventful day. Pluto is more about the enlightenment that comes from the inside, very personal and deep. Insights of extraordinary nature and impact come with the Full Moon we're in the midst of. Taking those awakenings and recreating reality accordingly is next.  Mercury and Uranus are a whirlwind of air and fire, fueling spontaneous action and communication. Word spreads like wildfire today and it'll be hard to keep anything secret or quiet.  The Moon squares Uranus and our emotional responses set in. That might be to try and block feelings we're not comfortable with or don't know what to do with. Moon in Capricorn is reserved with emotion, but try not to compress feelings too much or they'll come back to haunt you. Respond with thought and wisdom. Today's color is yellow. 


Friday: Aquarius Moon


From 6:38 to 8:21 am EDT the Moon is void of course. Aquarius Moon arrives for weekend events where people gather. Mercury and Jupiter align in Gemini/Leo, favoring friendly interactions and also business expansion or contracts.  The Moon in the sign of friendship and planets in extroverted signs makes it a good day to socialize, network, and converse.  Today's color is turquoise. 


Saturday: Aquarius Moon


Jupiter and Uranus have both played significant roles this week. The trend continues as these two, in fire signs Leo and Aries, form aspects to Aquarius Moon. Have an open mind and don't be thrown off by changes of plans. Some things may turn out better. Have some flexibility. Creativity and growth are themes during these final weeks of Jupiter in Leo. Aquarius Moon is well suited to community events. Wear blue today.


Sunday: Pisces Moon, Mercury trine Venus


From 8:32 am to 10:23 am EDT the Moon is void of course. Aquarius Moon squares Saturn. Necessary change may be a struggle or create fear. This happens in fixed signs, and authority figures, elders and strong opinions may not yield easily. Mercury and Venus ease some of that, favoring positive communication. In some cases, very good news will be cause for festivity.  There are a couple of opposing themes as you can see! Mercury and Venus favor friendship, romance, parties and lively conversation.  Show respect where it's due. Today's color is light green.

 

June 22nd to 28th, 2015

 

Monday: Jupiter trine Uranus


The Virgo Moon is quiet compared to a dramatic trine between Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo. The two combine for growth spurts and significant developments, some of which seem to happen overnight.  Go into this day with a very open mind, consider an opportunity that's out of the ordinary, and be mentally prepared to act in the moment when something is too intriguing to pass up. Mercury and Neptune weigh in today and tomorrow, both helping and hindering with the truth, the details, and the sorting out of what's real vs. a pipe dream. Ask lots of questions, but in the end go with your gut. Jupiter provides enthusiasm, willingness to try, and the wisdom and ability to pull things off in grand style.  Naysayers may throw in reasons not to leap, but those words will pale in comparison to the Jupiter in Leo roar.  Today's color is red.


Tuesday: Virgo Moon


Virgo Moon is free of aspects. Monday's forecast is still in action. As Mercury squares Neptune, pull yourself from daydreams or stories you're using as excuses. This is a powerful time to move on what you've been delaying.  Lose your tendency to procrastinate. Use Virgo Moon to consider facts and realities, but let go of assumptions and negative thinking. See the difference between being pessimistic and being practical and informed.  Open your possibilities by networking, asking for support and pitching in to help too. Today's color is yellow.


Wednesday: 2nd Quarter Moon in Libra


This is the lunar cycle time for measuring progress. With a great New Moon one week behind us and a Full Moon the same distance in the future, consider how you're acting on things that matter to you. Mars and the Sun in Cancer square Libra Moon encouraging us to balance intellect and emotion. One will challenge the other, and if you tend to lean toward facts or only toward feelings, see if you can inch a bit in the other direction and get more perspective.  Libra Moon starts at 1:41 am EDT after just a 29 minute void of course Moon. Mars shifts to Cancer at 9:33 am. It's a diminished place for Mars, the warrior. How can you bring bravery and courage into family situations without overpowering others? Could you be a more gentle warrior and recognize feelings through processes that might be challenging or require you to be in a nurturing role if it's not your usual style? Today's color is light blue.


Thursday: Libra Moon


Five planets influence the Libra Moon, and equally as many priorities, decisions and possibilities are likely to fill our earthly time. The sweetest and happiest vibes come from Venus and Jupiter in Leo, favoring friendships, collaborations and things to get excited about.  Mercury leans in for those of us negotiating contracts and plans.  Uranus is opposite the Moon, and that's the unpredictable one.  Just when you think something is set and decided, a new or unusual event can change things.  Be willing to rearrange and use flexible thinking when necessary, but don't think you have to scrap a plan completely. Try not to be easily flustered since that's today's achilles heel. Calm, positive energy will get you best outcomes. Void of course Moon 7:22 pm to 1:57 pm EDT on Friday. Wear lavender. 


Friday: Libra to Scorpio Moon


The Moon is void in the earlier hours. Focus on routine things and avoid major decisions or purchases. Plan a social breakfast or meeting instead of something more formal.  At 1:57 pm the Moon crosses to Scorpio and forms a trine to Mars in Cancer a few hours later.  This is harmonious water sign energy, and if there's a downside it's too much emotion and a possibility of aggravating feelings that belong in the past.  It's wonderful for channeling emotion into art, song, and even other work. Dive into a project and lose track of time.  Create something beautiful. Recognize your feelings without letting them rule or overcome you. Today's color is maroon.


Saturday: Scorpio Moon

If you're looking for a quieter weekend day or hoping for a more intimate conversation or evening, this Scorpio Moon in harmony with Sun, Pluto and Neptune provides the setting.  The aspects are gentle, thoughtful, creative, and meaningful.  Gardening and water related activities are also favored.  Today's color is blue.


Sunday: Scorpio Moon conjunct Saturn

Saturn retrograde is at work these days, and today meets the Moon. There's a serious influence toward unfinished business, possibly bringing up feelings of jealousy or vengeance. Do settle disputes that have lingered too long and consider how to do that with integrity.  Long standing problems may be resolved, for example you may sell the property that's been on the market for an extended time or finalize a divorce or division of property or business successfully during this retrograde.  Be methodical and avoid too much sentiment or drama that could get in the way.  Jupiter and Venus are square to this action, reminding us of loyalty, courage and taking the high road.  Seek peaceful, lasting solutions. Void Moon 9:50 pm to 11:21 pm EDT when Sagittarius Moon take over. Today's color is black.  

 Weekly Astrology June 15th to 21st, 2015

 

Monday: Saturn Retrograde in Scorpio


The Moon in Gemini lines up beautifully with Jupiter and Venus in Leo. Social events, networking for business, writing and marketing endeavors are favored. Negotiations, contracts, and decisions come more easily now. Things delayed may suddenly get the go ahead.  It's a friendly day overall. Aquarius, Leo and Aries, love and social times benefit from lively, fun aspects. Communication is very important today and simple heart to heart talks improve relationships, lead to decisions, and help deepen and expand your connection.  Saturn retrograde stepped back into Scorpio on Sunday, and in some cases unfinished business from early winter (December 2014) comes up for resolution or deeper healing in the next few weeks.  Rethinking and preparing for a different path is natural before tomorrow's New Moon. Today's color is turquoise.


Tuesday: New Moon in Gemini


Mars is conjunct this New Moon at 10:05 am EDT. Mars, the Sun and Moon together stimulate the mind in a big way. This is good for planning and problem solving, but hopefully it doesn't keep you awake at night. Agreements, decisions and words come quickly. With Mars involved, try not to be sharp with words. Sarcasm, humor and possibly debates are activated. The Moon is void of course 10:05 am to 6:51 pm EDT and then in Cancer. Nurture a plan or someone dear to you tonight.  Today's color is white.


Wednesday: Cancer Moon


This week is about beginnings and restarts. Cancer Moon in harmony with Neptune and across from Pluto relates to family and home related things, as well as relationship for Cancer and Capricorn, and creative energy for all signs.  Gemini may be able to get creative with career and manifesting resources. Sagittarius rearranging your schedule and living space is a way to refresh your routine.  Virgo, a secret or undercurrent in a friendship or relationship becomes obvious and you get a chance to clear things up one way or another.  Uranus squares the Moon Thursday at 7:24 am EDT and has a surprising impact. We're likely to hear of changes that seem sudden.  Today's color is gray.


Thursday: Cancer Moon


The Moon and Uranus square and quick responses are called for. Aries may confront a family matter while Taurus needs to respond to communications initiated early or overnight. It's the kind of day you get called into work when you thought it was a day off, or something similar.  Cancer is the sign of home and family, mothers and nurturing.  In the almanacs, you'll see this as a good day for fishing and planting. Consider how that relates to what you're doing, such as fishing for information or needed resources or planting anything that could grow into a source of comfort or income.  Today's color is blue.


Friday: Leo Moon


Cancer Moon is void of course from 1:52 am to 2:23 am EDT. Leo Moon arrives in time for weekend plans. This is a festive time as Venus and Jupiter bring love and blessings, knowledge and pleasure.  They line up exactly with the Leo Moon tomorrow. Today, Mercury and Saturn are in  harmony with the Moon for long term decisions, resolving of old business, wisdom and heart in taking care of things. This is a good day for solving problems, clearing the air and speaking your mind with a good blend of passion and reason.  Aim to be practical and creative, not dramatic or overbearing.  Today could result in a great accomplishment, even where serious business is concerned.  Gold is today's color.

5:30-7. $20 See www.scarboroughmaineyoga.com to register


Saturday: Leo Moon


Parties, openings, weddings and special events of all kinds are nicely timed as the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter converge in Leo. Bring some extra sparkle, magnificence and even outrageousness to whatever you do. We'll tend to "go big or go home". Love, art, learning and growth are favored. Some will experience this as abundance, like Cancer, and others will lean into commitment and follow their passions, like Leo and Aquarius. Much attention is bestowed on Leo and Scorpio. All of us may experience generosity on the giving or receiving side.  Today's color is purple. 


Sunday: Solstice, Sun in Cancer


The Moon moves from Leo to Virgo after a short void of course time from 12:09 to 12:59 pm EDT. The Sun moves to Cancer at 12:38 pm and summer officially begins. It's Father's Day in the USA and the Sun is "the father" in the zodiac. Today's longest hours of daylight bring the Moon and Mars in harmony at 8:54 am and a square to Saturn at 12:09 pm while the Moon is still in Leo. It's interesting that the early hours feature masculine energy and then as the Sun and Moon change signs, feminine energy takes over.  This is a day to consider living up to a responsibility. Expectations may be high or challenging, especially early. Virgo Moon and Cancer Sun have a nurturing influence as the day goes on. Water sports and outside activities are favored. Today's color is navy blue.

Weekly June 8th to 14th, 2015

 

Monday: Pisces Moon


A variety of aspects influence us during this mutable Pisces Moon. The Sun sextile to Jupiter in Gemini/Leo stimulates our interactions with people including networking, the possibility of contracts and collaborations, and communication with large groups via blogging, websites, and other marketing methods.  Feed the need for positivity in the world and spread an optimistic message. News and interactions regarding siblings is likely, especially for Aries while Pisces is part of family decisions and news too. The Moon and Neptune meet and the Neptunian aspect can be sentimental but the imagination is triggered. Be sure you're not just telling yourself stories. Know what's real, and if not, ask questions and maintain skepticism. Mercury will no longer be retrograde on Friday. It might be worth some patience. Today's color is light blue.


Tuesday: Mars sextile Uranus


There's a sudden nature to events as Mars and Uranus connect.  Disputes could easily flare with Mars in Gemini, sign of words, and Uranus in Aries, the warrior sign.  It's a good time to avoid a debate. The more positive side of this sextile is a sense of excitement and spontaneity. Stay out of urgency. Mercury is still retrograde. Think out statements you're ready to make. Soften everything a bit as you edit. The Sun and Mars square the Moon and indicate challenge.  Getting our heads and hearts aligned with each other is part of today's work.  Try not to go overboard with anything.  Void of course Moon can add to confusion or help you check out of a situation you don't like. It starts at 2:08 pm EDT. Yellow is today's color. 


Wednesday: Aries Moon


These are days for reconsidering decisions, your path, and the schedule you set up weeks ago. Aries Moon arrives at 7:14 am EDT.  Planets play well together today, creating more ease or quickness. Mercury in Gemini and Venus in Leo favor social events and friendly reconnections. Leo and Libra see old friends or colleagues. Gemini may enjoy travels, especially back "home".  The Sun and Uranus act like wildfire, spreading something fast. This may be news since the Sun is in the messenger sign, Gemini. If it's a sudden opportunity, see if you can have until Monday to decide (though you don't want to miss a chance, at least Friday would be more reliable when Mercury is out of retrograde).  Excitement is in the air. Keep some control over emotions since drama could also take over. Today's color is red.


Thursday: Mercury Direct


The Moon is in Aries, void of course from 7:43 pm EDT until 10:16 am on Friday.  Combustible energy is still present. Read Monday and Wednesday forecasts for more about Gemini and Aries action this week. The Moon feeds all of that today, aligning with Mars and the Sun in Gemini and meeting Uranus. Wild is a good word to describe what's going on astrologically. Mercury is direct at 6:33 pm EDT. Pause along with Mercury. Don't move too quickly on decisions. Next week's New Moon Tuesday is better timing. But if you must do something fast, can you buy time until tomorrow? It's a active, event filled solar system right now. Stay centered and wait for your moment. Tune in to your intuition. Avoid angry or resentful responses. Games will be competitive. Tonight, stay aware and on top of your game. Orange is today's color. 


Friday: Taurus Moon


The Moon sails from Aries, where there's been quite a stir this week, to Taurus, grounding us in earth. The Moon squares Venus on this first day past Mercury retrograde. This relates to relationships and attempting to reach agreements or sort our misunderstandings in order to accomplish something.  Taurus, Leo, Aquarius and Scorpio may notice this most, and may relate in career, home, and married/committed life.  Hold your ground with what's worthwhile, what you value most. Pink is today's color.


Saturday: Taurus Moon


The Moon in harmony with Neptune and Pluto helps us move from envisioning to realizing our hopes and dreams.  Neptune in Pisces provides a healthy belief in magic or miracles, while the Moon and Pluto in earth signs give form and life to ideas.  Channel emotions into art, music, building or even housework. Just past Mercury retrograde, you may like rearranging living or work space.  The Moon and Jupiter square in Taurus and Leo. This is stubborn, but in the name of finding the best plan. Expansion plans are a topic for consideration.  Today's color is green.


Sunday: Sun conjunct Mars


The Sun meets Mars in Gemini, the Moon meets Mercury and opposes Saturn just as Saturn prepares to move back into Scorpio. This is a day to be careful with anything that seems too fast, anyone who pushes too hard, and with old business that must be revisited. Give everything plenty of attention and thought. Fast talkers will be in full force.  This can activate our minds for problem solving too, and that's one of the upsides of this dynamic yet potentially overwhelming day.  Parties may be fun. You might have to overlook bad behavior though. Arguing is not likely to be productive.  Wear yellow.

Weekly June 1st to June 7th, 2015

Monday: Full Moon in Sagittarius


The Moon will be full at 12:19 pm EDT Tuesday. This Full Moon of truth seeking Sagittarius has the opposing influence of Mercury retrograde as well as confrontational Mars. Today Saturn and the Moon meet, a challenging influence. Saturn can help us reign in energy and focus on what must be confronted. However, Saturn may appear as the voice of authority, possibly restricting freedom of speech and action.  On the other hand, the Moon and Venus are in harmony for optimism and fun. Willingness to learn, enjoy each other's company and jump fully into the experience is part of this Moon/Venus trine.  The early part of this week is full of duality. The key is to stay true to yourself while not being fooled by someone or something else. Neptune reminds us that things are not always as they appear, escape is often not the right answer, and sometimes giving the benefit of the doubt is not the best plan. If you are in doubt, do less and say less this week. The Moon is void in Scorpio from 7:01 am to 2:39 pm EDT. Today's color is purple.


Tuesday: Full Moon in Sagittarius


The Full Moon's intention is to illuminate. Realizations, new perspective, wisdom and truth may have been slowly building or may hit like lightning bolts. A conversation, a book, or a piece of newly available information could change everything now. The flip side is Mercury retrograde and Neptune active with this Full Moon, from Gemini and Pisces, fog things up. Perhaps you're not emotionally ready to accept what's revealed now. A source of information or a promise may later prove unreliable.  Ask for proof, don't believe everything you're told, and try to "feel" for what's real and true.  With Mars across from the Moon, there's a fiery edge where arguments and confrontations could easily be triggered.  Like yesterday, if you're in doubt, say less.  It's a better time to go inward, connect with your intuition, and follow your passions as long as they keep you in the light. Full Moons bring completions and this one will culminate, in some cases, in long overdue decisions to move and live in a different way, to honor your individual freedom and truth.  Today's color is white.


Wednesday: Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon


The Moon is void of course from 1:59 am EDT to 8:50 pm. Full Moon related news and activity continues. The Moon and Uranus have a sudden nature, like something catching fire. Use that knowledge to prevent a conflict, accident, or overwhelmed feeling. Do not react without thought. The void of course Moon can cloud judgement. The less planned today, the better. Routine work is recommended. Wear safety gear, stay aware and lean toward the comfort zone. Don't play with fire literally or otherwise.  This can be a fine day if you're pacing and avoiding the bigger decisions. Capricorn Moon 8:50 pm EDT through Friday night. Today's color is black.


Thursday: Capricorn Moon


Let Full Moon feelings wane, and move into the process. That process could be sorting emotions as the Moon meets Pluto. Capricorn is not a sign oriented to feelings, however it is a sign of "how to", organization, and the physical world. Therefore, problem solving, putting feelings in their place, and getting a handle on things that must be done is favored.  Build, rearrange and rework. Neptune adds some creativity to linear thinking or tasks.  It's a nice combination for being outside whether for work or fun.  Enjoy the natural world.  Wear green.  


Friday: Venus in Leo


The Moon is void of course today beginning at 6:54 am. It's still Capricorn Moon time so be productive and feel good about your accomplishments. The simple things are more favored. With Moon and Uranus square, try not to rush or overreact. At 11:33 am Venus moves to Leo, a very festive and creative place for the planet of love. Through mid July, Venus shines for children, special events,  performers and performances, and the arts. Mars aligns with Jupiter today, and it's a dynamic combination, convincing, charismatic, and grand.  Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Leo also influence education, writing, and politics. Powerful teachers take the stage on a day like this. Find inspiration in leaders or maybe in friends who exemplify these qualities.  Today's color is red.


Saturday: Aquarius Moon


At 1:02 am EDT, the Moon moves to Aquarius and opposes Venus in Leo. The opposites attract effect occurs. Venus and the Moon both align with Saturn as well. Venus represents love, attraction, beauty and symmetry while Saturn represents earth energy for building, manifesting, growth through challenge and the wisdom age brings. If a relationship has been struggling or come apart, this could be a day for healing. Aquarius Moon has healthy detachment that allows for reason, impartial thinking, and team effort rather than individual agenda. The Moon aligns with Mercury for reestablishing relationships, collaborations and the clarity hindsight can bring.  Today's color is blue.


Sunday: Aquarius Moon


The Moon is in harmony with the Sun and Mars in Gemini, opposite Jupiter in Leo, and sextile Uranus in Aries  Ideas come to the forefront. Jupiter indicates big plans, generosity and possibly extravagance.  Let inspiration be your guide.  Write down ideas that seem worth pursuing.  Travels, education, publishing, teaching and media are some arenas of activity with these planets all involved.  The phrase "Anything could happen" comes to mind. Try to remove limitations or restrictions you've outgrown. Remove blocks in your way of thinking, and expand.  Today's color is yellow.



 

               Weekly Astrology May 26th to May 31st, 2015

Monday: Virgo Moon


Virgo Moon starts at 4:52 am ET and squares Saturn in Sagittarius and later, the Sun in Gemini. Duty calls. Messes need to be cleaned up and the air cleared. Conflicts about responsibilities, honesty or lack thereof arise. Venus squares Uranus and Mars squares Neptune. Relationship status changes may be sudden or more public. Mars in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces are both unpredictable, though this can fuel creativity too.  Today's color is blue.


Tuesday: Virgo Moon


 This Virgo Moon is focused on problem solving. Temporary fixes help during Mercury retrograde until more permanent decisions are made. Miscommunication creates issues that might be unnecessary. Aim for clarity and avoid that. Pluto and Venus align with the Moon today for subtle approaches, nurturing influences, and attention to love and family.  From 10:21 pm to 8:42 pm ET on Wednesday, the Moon is void of course. Today's color is black.


Wednesday: Libra Moon


The Moon's transition time, void of course, ends at 8:42 pm ET. This long period of time isn't best for major announcements or discussions with one exception. If you're looking for forgiveness, for something to slip by or be let go easily, this might be your day. Mercury retrograde meets Mars in Gemini which has the potential to really muck certain things up, stir arguments, and contribute to nasty misunderstandings or battles of words.  Be careful how you speak and tread today if you want peace.  Libra Moon seeks harmony once it's here. Today's color is lavender.


Thursday: Libra Moon


The Libra Moon influence is social, friendly, and concerned maybe more with how things look than what's underneath.  Present yourself well, share information, be customer service oriented, and benefit from networking. The planets that stirred things up yesterday align with the Moon today, reminding how quickly feelings, information and attitudes can change.  The Moon and Sun harmonize for clearer head, ability to see things from two perspectives, and more ease generally.  Today's color is yellow.


Friday: Mercury square Neptune


The Moon is in Libra, void of course beginning at 4:20 pm until 5:34 am Saturday. Be skeptical, ask questions and move through transactions and interactions with care and awareness as Mercury retrograde squares Neptune. A deceptive, misleading influence is at work.  The Moon's interactions with other planets are varied. Take things as they come and don't be foolishly trusting. The Moon and Venus square and the people closest to us may need attention and assurance. Today's color is light blue.


Saturday: Scorpio Moon


The Moon moves to Scorpio at 5:34 am, but the strongest influence is the Sun and Mercury retrograde's meeting in Gemini. Scorpio is a sign that can hang on to the past, and the retrograde tends to bring people back into our lives and feelings back into our midst.  The positive side is reconnections with friends or family and possibly forgiveness and peacemaking. In air sign Gemini, we tend to express ideas and thoughts and have conversations.  The Scorpio Moon has a less forgiving nature and could cause us to latch on to the negative emotions associated with the past. Today's color is indigo.


Sunday: Sun square Neptune


Neptune is in harmony with the Moon and square to the Sun.  Neptune influences romantic notions and can relate to "rose colored glasses".  The Moon and Neptune create a romantic, creative atmosphere. The Sun and Neptune challenge our judgement. Don't get sucked in by someone or something that seems appealing at first.  Caution is king during Mercury retrograde.  Water sports and locations are favored with Scorpio Moon and Neptune in Pisces, water signs. Today's color is blue.

Weekly May 18th to 25th, 2015: Mercury Retrograde

Monday: Mercury retrograde, New Moon

 

There's a push forward and a pull gently back, at once, as Taurus New Moon arrives on the day Mercury becomes retrograde for three weeks. There are a couple of ways to go about things. One is to begin something you can adapt or adjust later.  Taurus is a sign that leans toward committing fully, however during this New Moon, begin gently, tip toe in, or put something off until mid June if you can wait.  Whatever you do, avoid deciding under pressure or forcing anything that isn't happening organically.  New Moon is 12:13 am ET, Mercury retrograde begins at 9:49 pm ET. The Moon shifts to Gemini at 5:27 am. Mars and Saturn are active with the Moon, also having opposing influences. Today is all over the place! Stay centered and use flexible thinking. Today's color is white.

 

Tuesday: Gemini Moon

 

Gemini Moon meets retrograde Mercury. Effects include revisiting old business, rethinking plans, and reconnecting with those you've been out of touch with. Some of that may take you by surprise. Jupiter is in harmony with the Moon, influencing our ability to create and be expressive. Announcements will be made. Some may be reversed in the not so distant future. Take things lightly if possible. Be skeptical. The Moon is void of course at 1:57 pm ET until 9:56 am Wednesday. It's a good social time and not very focused generally. Take care of transportation plans and needs. Get the car checked out and don't neglect simple things that need to be done. Today's color is yellow. 

 

Wednesday: Cancer Moon

 

This is a good day to nurture others and also take good care of yourself. The tendency is for energy level to be lower. Get rest or get outside. Shift sluggishness with easy exercise. Try not to force things. Care for plants, animals, people, and home. Prepare and enjoy good food. Think simple. Today's color is light blue.

 

Thursday: Sun in Gemini

 

The Moon is in Cancer, void of course from 8:36 pm to 5:42 pm on Friday (ET). Sun moves to Gemini at 5:45 am for the final phase of spring. The planet most influential is Venus, opposing Pluto and meeting the Moon in Cancer. Venus represents beauty, harmony, love and togetherness. Cancer is favored, and Capricorn receives the benefit in long term love and partnerships. Pisces, this relates to love, luck and also your children. Venus opposite Pluto may reveal another side to someone you know very well already. For Pisces and Virgo, friendship could turn to love now.  Pluto may also show the shadow side of a partner. Whatever is happening this week, go about it gently and don't rush.  Today's color is pink.

 

Friday: Void of Course Moon

 

The Void of Course Moon and Mercury retrograde indicate that slowing things down, putting off actions that can be taken in a few weeks instead, and keeping calm is the way to go. Routine work and tasks are the order of the day.  The Sun is opposite Saturn and this could become argumentative or pressure filled.  If you've agreeing to something, can you leave a loophole, set an end date to a trial period, or agree to revisit before making it permanent? Leo Moon arrives at 5:42 pm ET and makes for s fun evening out. Celebrations and reunions are nicely timed this weekend. Today's color is purple. 

Weekly May 11th to 17th, 2015


Monday: Mars in Gemini


The Moon is void of course in Aquarius from 6:36 am ET until 10:53 pm. Mars moves into Gemini at 10:40 pm ET. The Moon and Uranus align for a morning or day that's different from the usual. The Sun and Mars square the Moon today which often indicates challenge. Ideals and ideas are questioned with these squares. Decisions you thought were over could come up for further discussion. Void of course Moon isn't the most favorable time to make agreements. Concentrate on the simple things today. Pisces Moon later, square to Mars newly in Gemini, makes tonight's plans unreliable. Adjust accordingly. Overall, having few expectations will make the day and night easier. Today's color is green.


Tuesday: Pisces Moon


Pisces Moon interacts with several planets and a variety of influences are at play.  Move fluidly and creatively through conversations, adjustments, and circumstances as they unfold.  Communication about business and personal plans could be a source of tension as Saturn and Mercury square the Moon. Act on travel and educational plans and agreements now if possible. We are closing in on Mercury retrograde. Work through something, even if it's a sensitive topic. Venus in Cancer aligns with the Moon for sensitivity and emotional connection. Stay in tune with the person or people who matter. Really listen and be attentive.  Today's color is pink.


Wednesday: Pisces Moon


The Moon is waning in Pisces, in harmony with Pluto and the Sun. Blend creative and practical thinking and action.  The New Moon is next Monday and you can prepare by rethinking and being open to change.  Void of course Moon is 12:55 pm ET to 1:13 am tomorrow.  During those hours, relax, dream, create and don't put pressure on others.  Today's color is white.


Thursday: Aries Moon


 At 1:13 am ET the Moon shifts to Aries. Mars and Mercury in Gemini increase the impulse to take any kind of action. The pre-Mercury retrograde phase is a bit of a gray area where long term decisions are involved.  Lean toward well though out decisions rather than suddenly moving on something you're unsure of. A trial basis is welcome vs a solid commitment. Saturn in Sagittarius urges wisdom and advice as well as learning through experience. Saturn challenges us to grow through trial and error, and in Sagittarius this relates to higher education and travels.  If you need to send your acceptance for college, for example, this is probably the last recommended day until after June 11th. Today's color is red.


Friday: Mars opposite Saturn


Today looks quite challenging with a void of course Moon beginning 8:04 am and Saturn opposite Mars in Gemini forcing issues.  It's not a good time to act under pressure, yet situations may arise that seem urgent today. Ask yourself if the urgency is real. Be aware of the people and other influences pushing decisions.  Make sure you know what you're agreeing to. There's more but that's the most important aspect of the day.  Competition may feel fierce in any arena. Today's color is yellow.

Saturday: Taurus Moon, Venus trine Neptune


At 3:02 am ET the Moon crosses over to Taurus, a sign of longevity and loyalty. The Moon aligns with both Venus and Neptune and those two harmonize also. Creative, romantic, sensual influences play out. Soften your approach. Enjoy music, art, good food and all the pleasures of life. Today's color is lavender.


Sunday: Taurus Moon


Today's Moon squares Jupiter in Leo and aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. A realistic, practical way of looking at situations is helpful. See what you can take from the visionary stage to real, tangible results. So close to Mercury retrograde, be cautious with big decisions. Today's color is green.

Weekly May 4th to 10th, 2015

 

Monday: Full Moon in Scorpio


The Full Moon was exact at 11:42 pm ET on Sunday night. This Scorpio Moon is very much in affect. Jupiter also squares the Sun and Moon, in Leo/Taurus/Scorpio which is a push for growth and may come in the form of direct challenge. Meanwhile the Moon opposes Mars in Taurus. This action in fixed signs brings strong energy for confronting problems and requires strength and persistence.  Where people or situations are unyielding, patience is called for. Full Moons bring completions, and this one requires letting go of a grudge or an idea held on to for too long.  If it's obvious something is over, it will feel like a relief to accept that and move on.  Void Moon begins at 9:49 pm ET. Today's color is dark red.


Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon


Sag Moon hits at 7:13 am ET and meets Saturn at 12:38 pm. Make wise choices around travel and educational plans or get advice in those areas today. Mentally, we'll tend to be philosophical. Weigh risks carefully before jumping into anything. A bit of restraint is called for, by Saturn.  Mercury is opposite the Moon. Expect honest talk, possibly including truth that hurts. Criticism may not be taken well. Communicate with care.  Today's color is black.


Wednesday: Sun trine Pluto


The Sagittarius Moon aligns with Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries for a fiery, action oriented day. Things may go easier and the Moon is far enough past Full to allow tension to dissipate. The Sun in harmony with Pluto helps with decisions, constructive plans, and tangible outcomes.  Today is expressive and not as stern or unfeeling as the past two days might have been. Today's color is red.


Thursday: Venus in Cancer


Venus moves to Cancer at 6:52 pm ET. This is good news for Cancer, helpful to Capricorn and Pisces in love and relationship, and positive for Libra with career plans and showcases of any kind. In the sign of family and home, Venus favors nesting, cleanups, and redecorating living spaces for the rest of the month.  The Moon is in Sagittarius until 2:16 pm and only void of course for minutes before moving to Capricorn then.  Venus and the Moon are opposite for much ado about love and emotions. Today's color is pink.


Friday: Capricorn Moon


The Capricorn Moon engages with the Sun and a few other planets for varied influences today. The bottom line seems to be the theme, in terms of both finances and getting things done. A no nonsense attitude is called for. Confidence emanates as the Sun and Moon align in earth signs. Use your personal power. Today's color is yellow.


Saturday: Aquarius Moon


Capricorn Moon for accomplishing some early weekend business, and then the Moon is void from 4:35 to 7:22 pm ET. Mercury squares Neptune so make sure information you're acting on is factual and honest.  Aquarius Moon at 7:22 pm for events, gatherings and community tonight and Sunday.  Today's color is blue.


Sunday: Aquarius Moon


The Moon and Mercury are in harmony for discussing, writing, studies, and coming up with great ideas.  Jupiter is across from the Moon stimulating the extrovert and optimist in all of us.  Logical thinking is favored. Technological upgrades and purchases are recommended now, before Mercury retrograde gets any closer (May 19th to June 11th). Happy Mother's Day. Today's color is turquoise.

Weekly Astrology April 27th to May 3rd, 2015

 

Monday: Leo/Virgo Moon


The Leo Moon squares Mercury in Taurus at 10:12 am and is then void of course until Virgo Moon hits at 9:07 pm ET. The Moon square Mercury brings creative thinking to the forefront. In places of disagreement, be more open minded, listen to each other and find permanent solutions. These are fixed signs so once agreement is reached, we'll tend to stick with the plan.  During void of course Moon, aim to be more light, playful, and heart centered.  Bouncy energy may bother some and resonate with others. Kids and some adults will find it hard to concentrate, so try to keep tasks and learning easygoing and fun.  Virgo Moon is good for late night studies and organizing. The Moon squares Saturn overnight adding even more focus on structure.  It might be easy to get things done today if you're relaxed and more difficult if you're unsure or tense. Today's color is brown.


Tuesday: Virgo Moon


The Moon squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Learning, training, and education in general is in the spotlight. Commit to a program of study or agree to take the next step in training or certification of any kind if you feel ready.  The Moon and Sun are in harmony for earth sign things, like garden plans, landscaping and building.  It's a doer's day, so go beyond the thought process and produce. Neptune opposes the Moon tonight which is good for productive dreaming, imaginative homework, or a movie after a long day. It's not the most trustworthy though, so share information carefully.  Be flexible but not to the point of bending over backwards in a situation that doesn't deserve so much accommodation. Today's color is navy blue.


Wednesday: Sun trine Neptune


The Moon is Full in Scorpio on Sunday. This week, move toward completions of all kinds.  Virgo Moon trine Pluto and Mars should help keep us on track with projects and plans. Pluto may unearth an issue or two to be confronted constructively. Act on things that have been overlooked or neglected with the energy of Mars in physical Taurus. The Moon squares Venus in Gemini. How we communicate plays a significant part in outcomes today. Venus relates to relationship and both Virgo and Gemini, the signs involved, relate to words. Manage what you say or write and how you phrase things.  Restrain yourself from strong criticism or assumptions if you want to maintain peace, love and friendship or collegial relationships in the workplace.  The Sun and Neptune are just the right mix of water and earth, add a spiritual, connected aspect to the day, and might fuel both compassion and romance as needed. Today's color is green.


Thursday: Mercury in Gemini, Libra Moon


Moving void of course 8:23 am to 10:03 am, the Moon then shifts to Libra.  Decisions may be pending or required early today as Mercury and the Moon align at 8:23. Give your word outside those void of course times.  Use early morning to process and weigh things out.  Libra Moon aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius. Intelligence is today's theme. The world of ideas, thoughts, and possibilities is activated. Feed your brain, your spirit and your body in healthy ways.  Read books and consult other resources.  In the body, Sagittarius relates to the liver and Libra to the kidneys. Drink lots of water (add lemon!) and purify your body in whatever ways you choose. We're moving into Full Moon time, and feeling good helps with Full Moon moods.  Mercury moves to Gemini, another sign of the mind, at 10 pm. Mercury in Gemini is very communicative, relates to siblings, and ideally gives us a way with words.  Today's color is yellow.


Friday: Libra Moon


Expect a variety of influences on this Libra Moon day.  Jupiter favors friendships and good decisions. Pluto and Uranus stir feelings and create unusual or surprising circumstances.  The Full Moon warmup is here for Sunday night.  Libra Moon traits include judiciousness, balance, and ability to compromise. Keep these in consideration as you move through a potentially busy Friday on all fronts.  Keep your wits about you if you're out tonight or traveling in unfamiliar areas. Libra Moon can keep us too much in our heads. Find balance and stay grounded. Today's color is lavender.


Saturday: Void of Course Moon in Libra, Moon trine Venus


With so much void of course Moon time, don't allow yourself to feel pressured. The Full Moon is a time of decisions, completions, news and deadlines. However, void Moon is not the best time for a big expenditure, spontaneous risk, or major decision unless you've truly done your homework on these things.  Know what you're getting into or receiving for your money. Relationships can have happy, ease filled time on days like this.  On the other hand though, Mercury and Saturn oppose tomorrow and the weekend is filled with serious considerations. Full Moon is Sunday at 11:42 pm ET and the feeling and events linger into the early days of the week. Scorpio Moon moves in at 9:47 pm. Today's color is pink.


Sunday: Full Moon in Scorpio


The Moon is Full in Scorpio at 11:42 pm ET. Everything is magnified, and some things may feel bigger or more overwhelming than need be. Try to keep feelings in check, especially jealousy, regret, or vengeance.  Allow for some quiet meditation or rest. Remember under this fixed sign Full Moon that things do change. You're not stuck, even if it seems so in this moment.  Make long term decisions if you're ready. It may be hard to change things you agree to now.  It's a solid time before Mercury retrograde (May 19th-June 11th), so as long as you plan to be in for the long haul, go with a promise, contract or major announcement. Mercury opposes Saturn in two very different signs from Scorpio, Gemini and Sagittarius. This relates to wise decisions and also learning and growing through challenge and experience.  It's a powerful Full Moon with some vibrations from last month's April 4th eclipse. New developments in ongoing stories are to be expected. Seal a deal or put something to rest.  Today's color is gold.

 

                             Weekly Astrology April 20th to 26th, 2015

 

Monday: Sun in Taurus

The Sun moves, signaling the second phase of spring, at 5:42 am. Taurus birthdays begin! The Moon is also in the sign of the bull until 7:28 pm, void of course since Sunday at 7:07 pm. Get simple, practical things done. Avoid overly complex information or tasks. We're fueled by Saturday's New Moon, and this may feel like an energetic day. Physical exercise, work, and hands on learning and building are favored by Taurus Moon. Gemini Moon 7:28 pm is opposite Saturn at 2:00 am ET. Debates happen as many ideas are tossed around. It may be hard to take criticism tonight. Deliver any judgments with care. Today's color is yellow.

 

Tuesday: Moon conjunct Venus

The Moon and Venus meet in Gemini. Business and pleasure mix well under these conditions. Mercury squares Jupiter and discussions of plans, travels, higher education, and bringing projects or spending to scale is likely.  Many ideas can be exchanged on a day like this. Mars forms a trine to Pluto in earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn. This may help us raise questions or information that's been hidden or ignored.  The planets and Moon set us up for discoveries of all kinds. Follow natural curiosity and seek information. Bring up ideas you think are worthwhile. Brainstorm. Meet people for fun or work purposes. It's an extroverted day.  Gemini and Taurus are very busy and central signs of activity this week. Today's color is pink.

 

Wednesday: Mars conjunct Mercury, Venus trine Jupiter

The Moon is void at 1:38 am ET, but there's good reason to think much will be accomplished regardless. Mars and Mercury put plans in motion, and that included contracts. Taurus relates to building, food, farming, and gardens to name a few thing that might get a big push or the final word to get started now.  Venus and Jupiter are so favorable in Gemini and Leo, helping relationships form and blossom, encouraging growth and love, anything related to children, media, publishing and positive, fair business exchanges. Aquarius, Gemini, Sagittarius and Leo feel the love.  Taurus, Virgo and other signs may feel the growth in terms of abundance and opportunities.  Mercury is also in harmony with Pluto for receiving word and information you need to move forward.  Today's color is green.

 

Thursday: Cancer Moon

Cancer Moon arrives at 12:25 am ET. Today is continuation of all the planetary action this week. Re-read Monday-Wednesday and also consider the new cycle that began with last Saturday's New Moon. It's time for action rather than indecision or letting things lag. The Moon harmonizes with the Sun and Neptune today which should generally bring ease.  Today's color is light blue.

 

Friday: Cancer Moon

The Moon is in Cancer, impacted by Pluto, Uranus, Mercury and Mars. It's a mixed day. Cancer Moon tends to be sensitive to moods and the environment.  This can be felt as overstimulation or need for peace and calm. If you feel that, turn things off to get a bit of solitude and think clearly.  Planting and fishing are favored in the almanacs. In urban life this can translate as activities that result in profit or growth.  Void of course Moon begins at 1:04 pm ET. Today's color is white. 

Saturday: Leo Moon

At 9:13 am ET, the Moon shifts to Leo. Saturn influences the business of travel, education, and children today.  Use wisdom and advisement in decisions.  Know that you've thought things out clearly.  Halfway between New and Full Moon, aim for progress.  It's a good night for social gatherings and performances.  Today's color is orange.

 

Sunday: Leo Moon

The Moon meets Jupiter, a shining influence on this weekend's events. Open mindedness and blossoming are two possible outcomes of this conjunction.  Children are ruled by Leo, as are performers and leaders. Venus and Uranus combine forces for surprising relationship events, announcements and status changes. Today's color is purple.

Monday: Aquarius Moon


The Moon is opposite Jupiter, square Mars and sextile Uranus. Quite a combination for a Monday! Opinions and plans need to be aired out. Though compromise might not come easily, Jupiter pulls in that direction. Aquarius Moon has objectivity, so perhaps step out of the emotional context to see what's in plain sight, true and not worth debating.  Mars in Taurus can be unyielding, however Uranus adds new ideas and perspective in an effort to re-create what's outgrown or too traditional. Bottom line: freshen your perspective, listen to each other, and then decide if you want to hold onto a way of thinking.  Take advantage of the inventive, higher level thinking mode Aquarius Moon represents.  Today's color is blue.


Tuesday: Mercury in Taurus

Gentle Yoga 9:30 am

Baby n Me 10:45 am both at Scarborough Yoga


Aquarius Moon until 4:12 pm ET. Use forward thinking as you solve present problems or come up with new ideas. The Moon is waning for shedding what's no longer needed. Mercury and the Sun are in harmony from Aries for an eventful, but hopefully easygoing day. Moon is void of course at 3:45 pm and turns things over to Pisces at 4:12 (a very short void Moon). Good time for a power nap! Pisces Moon could be a bit cranky or require an adjustment as two squares form. Venus and Saturn bring up what's not being taken care of, including relationships. Mercury shifts to Taurus at 6:51 pm ET putting the long term stamp on decisions and plans made in the next few weeks. Today's color is light green.


Wednesday: Pisces Moon

Hot Yoga (Bikram) 12-1 Maine Hatha yoga

Flow at Breathing Room South Portland 6-7:15 pm


Pisces Moon is malleable, creative, sensitive and emotional. There's more ability to yield during this part of the week. It's a day to let go of what you can't control or don't need. Make space for new things coming with Aries New Moon and the next phase of spring (Saturday is the New Moon, Monday the Sun moves on to Taurus). Venus is opposite Saturn, continuing what they started yesterday. Relationships that are going through complicated times need some serious attention. This happens in Gemini and Sagittarius so it's not very grounded or certain, but Saturn is pursing truth while Venus is flirting and maybe creating dualities in love lives. Gemini and Sagittarius may also be at the point of deciding to commit to other things, like longer term plans, studies, or work options. Try to take things seriously while Mercury in Taurus is pushing for what's lasting. Void of course Moon is 5:37 pm  ET until 5 pm Thursday. Today's color is black. 


Thursday: Pisces Moon


Pisces Moon is void of course until 5 pm ET.  Expect noncommittal attitudes and answers. That actually might be the smart thing early in the day. The Aries Moon moves in at 5 pm and aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius for action. More wisdom in dealing with change can come from Saturn in Sagittarius. Seek solutions, advice from those more experienced and/or older. Movement is favored over anything stagnant and unchanging. Today's color is orange.


Friday: Aries Moon


It looks like a varied and eventful day with Aries Moon and many planetary influences. The most notable is Mars square to Jupiter in Taurus/Leo. Debates will be intense, though they may end peacefully. Mars in earthy Taurus and Jupiter in fiery Leo are an interesting combination. This may come in the form of people who challenge you to grow and change. It may feel like a push, like you're being told what to do. Try to listen though and not automatically resist. Taurus and Leo are both "doing" signs, but in different ways. Someone with a very different method could feel like an enemy or a threat, but consider what you might learn or how you might benefit from giving his/her way a chance. Take your time with decisions today. Aries Moon can feel pushy too. Weigh out options. On this day before New Moon, perhaps you buy some time and decide Sunday or Monday.  Jupiter is the strong planet today, in Leo for expansion, creativity and growth. Uranus adds excitement and/or a feeling of instability. Today's color is red. 


Saturday: Aries New Moon

Fundamentals Yoga Flow 4-5pm Greener Postures W. Falmouth


New Moon in the first sign of the zodiac at 2:57 pm ET means initiation, leadership and start of new cycles. Brave, assertive energy wells up and calls for action. The Sun and Moon act together with no direct aspect to other planets today. Pure, fresh and dynamic, consider rebirths of any kind, pioneering and forging ahead, spring cleaning and purges of what's no longer useful. In with the new! Moon is void from 2:57  to 5:31 pm ET. Taurus Moon grounds us in decisions and actions taken now. Today's color is white.


Sunday: Taurus Moon, Neptune square Venus and sextile Mercury

Yin Yoga 10 am Maine Hatha Yoga

Prenatal Yoga 3 pm Breathing Room South Portland


Neptune has both an imaginative and sometimes dark influence. This planet is very active today with three aspects including a sextile to the Moon. Romance may be blissful. Hopefully that feeling is real, if so. Neptune can deceive or create an illusion. Writers, film makers and artists may find inspiration. Manipulative people may have their way. There are pros and cons all over the place. Enjoy without expectations for the future. Be happy but not gullible. Flirtations may not lead to anything, but could be fun for the moment. Void Moon starts at 7:07 pm ET until 7:28 pm ET Monday. Today's color is light blue. 

Weekly Astrology April 6th to April 12th, 2015

Monday: Sun conjunct Uranus


Scorpio Moon relates to emotions and may feel quite intense just two days after the lunar eclipse. Loyalty will be valued and recognized.  Mercury aligns with Jupiter and the Sun and Uranus meet in Aries. The Sun conjunction brings news and developments related to the eclipse, as this happens in Aries, the opposite sign to the Full Moon we had on Saturday. Exciting, unsettling and surprising are some words you might use to describe what's going on now and during the last few days.  Strong feelings and opinions are likely to be expressed. Today's color is red.


Tuesday: Scorpio Moon

Baby n Me 10:45-11:45 am Scarborough Yoga


Scorpio Moon is void of course at 4:42 pm ET until 1:08 am Wednesday. Mercury is active again today, squaring Pluto, aiming to disclose information and secrets. A release of information could send things in a whole new direction and may allow for more movement forward. Squares are stubborn though, and you'll have to work to get the info you need. Be persistent, a Scorpio Moon trait. Evening is for relaxing and taking care of personal priorities. The Moon opposes Venus, making relationship questions and status a focus, especially for Taurus, Scorpio, Cancer, and Capricorn. Today's color is black.


Wednesday: Mercury conjunct Uranus

Hot Yoga at Maine Hatha Yoga 12-1pm

Gentle Yoga at Breathing Room 4-5:15 &

Flow 6-7:15 pm


The Moon is in Sagittarius, a sign of movement. Mercury and Uranus meet in Aries for brilliant plans, wake up calls, and reasons to act immediately. Interesting messages and opportunities come unexpectedly. Jupiter is direct at 12:59 pm, and though you may not have noticed Jupiter retrograde, it's one more planet in favor of forward motion.  Saturn meets the Moon, saying choose wisely even if you have to move quickly.  Today's color is purple. 


Thursday: Sagittarius Moon trines

Gentle Yoga 9:30-10:30 &

Restorative  10:45-11:45 am Scarborough Yoga


Trines help things fall into place. They are a sign of ease, and we have four today! Sag Moon is in harmony with the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus.  Time to remove blocks, refresh what's stale, and actually accept offers or confirm plans. It's a good day for travels, field trips, and a new point of view. The void of course Moon begins at 1:45 pm. Get something settled before then. The Sun and Mercury meet just after midnight for more announcements and news. Today's color is yellow. 


Friday: Capricorn Moon

Hot Yoga at Maine Hatha Yoga 12-1pm


Moon to Capricorn at 8:47 am. The Sun/Mercury conjunction overnight means word comes today. Things you anticipated during the last few weeks, effects of the eclipses that went by March 20th and April 4th, and other statements mark the end of the week. This happens in Aries, sign of leadership, initiator of change, and pioneer.  You may find yourself venturing into new things, not necessarily by choice.  The Sun and Mercury also contribute to original designs and ways of thinking and can lead to invention and creation.  Some statements will be strong, since the two meet in expressive and assertive Aries.  Capricorn Moon and Mars in Taurus favor building and bold business moves. This trine happens at 10:36 pm and will impact Saturday too. Today's color is green.


Saturday: Capricorn Moon


Capricorn Moon is for getting things accomplished. The Moon is waning, and it's a favorable time for clearing old things old. Get rid of what's not useful. Capricorn is resourceful and during this Moon you could find new purpose for things you haven't been using. Do some feng shui at the home or office.  The Moon engages with 3 planets and the Sun for a variety of influences. The most notable is the square to the Sun in Aries. This can add to power struggles. Ask yourself if it's truly worth it and what you need to prove, before you go down that road.  Is the answer really that each of you have strengths to bring and neither has to dominate? Venus moves to Gemini at 11:28 am. Flirtatious, interested in people and socializing, Venus in Gemini may also inspire speakers, writers and teachers for the month ahead.  Planting and other outdoor plans are favored by the Moon. Today's color is navy blue.


Sunday: Aquarius Moon, Mars sextile Neptune

Yin Yoga at Maine Hatha Yoga Portland 10-11:30 am

Prenatal Yoga at Breathing Room South Portland 3-4:15 pm


The Moon is void of course from 4:15 am to 1:44 pm ET, and then moves to Aquarius.  Mars is in harmony with Neptune, strengthening imagination and creativity. See beyond limits today.  Artists, builders, and those who work the outdoor land or sea scapes may feel this sextile as inspiration, motivation, and ease.  Move past a mental block today. Start doing and let your process unfold. Today's color is turquoise. 

Weekly Astrology March 31st to April 5th, 2015

Monday: Mercury in Aries, Leo Moon


The Leo Moon is void of course at 9:57 am ET until 2:12 Tuesday afternoon. These hours are not ideal for major purchases or final word. It's a good catch up time though. Do the most simple, routine things, and have someone check your work if it's important not to make any errors. Have a system if you're cleaning or filing things since we often forget what we undertake during v.o.c Moons. Leo influences a fun and creative day, with a focus on children too. Mercury moves to Aries at 9:44 pm for a few weeks of quick decisions and reason to get going on things that have been put off. Today's color is yellow.


Tuesday: Virgo Moon, Mars in Taurus

Gentle Yoga &  Baby n Me Yoga 9:30 & 10:45 Scarborough Yoga


Void Moon starts the day and at 2:12 ET the Moon is in Virgo. Mars moves to Taurus at 12:26 pm. The first half of the day is less focused and could be less productive, but the earth sign energy influences us to make and do, figure out how, and show results this afternoon and evening.  The Virgo Moon aligns with Mars newly in Taurus. Use all your senses, take a hands on approach, and get it done your way so you'll be satisfied.  Virgo Moon is square to Saturn and details will be very important and may need clarifying. Try not to avoid what needs to be done or aired out.  Today's color is brown.


Wednesday: Virgo Moon

Hot Yoga at Maine Hatha Yoga Portland 12-1

Restorative Yoga at Greener Postures West Falmouth 6 pm


The Virgo Moon favors a flexible, productive approach. Set and move on goals.  It's a good day to do taxes or other financial tasks, write, study, or cook, clean and repair things.  Detail oriented activities are favored.  Edit and go over things to make sure you understand or have done the best you can. Tomorrow Mercury and Saturn align in Aries/ Sagittarius and that impacts more than just one day. Today, enter agreements, move on things that are due or overdue, take a serious, responsible approach to personal matters and health. It's a good time to adopt a new healthier way of being. Mercury in Aries is urging people to step up as leaders and help things move forward. The Moon is opposite Neptune and aligned with Pluto. Bring creativity to your productivity. Don't run from a responsibility. Face a fear or underlying reason. Today's color is navy blue.


Thursday: Mercury trine Saturn

Gentle & Restorative Yoga 9:30 &  10:45 Scarborough Yoga 


Void of course Moon is from 5:01 am ET until Friday at 3:07 am. This isn't the best for scheduling, shopping or reaching a final agreement, yet those things are due. Full Moon eclipse in Libra is Saturday and we are in the midst of that energy now. Conclusions, final products, and negotiations are part of this Full Moon. Justice is called for. Respond in a new way to old problems or matters that have been cycling for a long while.  A long time eclipse pattern is ready to close. Though the effects will go on and repercussions will be felt for as much as a year, agreements and partnership decisions come with this lunar eclipse. Lunar often indicates changes with the women in our lives from mothers to sisters, grandmothers and significant others or best friends.  Libra and Aries have been experiencing this eclipse pattern and may feel it most as personal changes and relationship events.  See yesterday's forecast for Mercury and Saturn alignment in place today. The goal is truth and forward momentum.  The Sun and Jupiter bring blessings on new endeavors, children, and creative, innovative projects.  Today's color is gold. 


Friday: Libra Moon


The Libra Moon is opposite Mercury in Aries and in harmony with Saturn in Sagittarius. Interactions will be strong, decisive, and ideally balanced today. Expect final outcomes, make or break, and news from couples and business partners regarding next moves. The lunar eclipse is Saturday at 8:06 am exact, though today we're just as likely to hear the news or feel the peaks as we are on Saturday and Sunday. Today's color is pink.


Saturday: Libra Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse 

RoZoYo® Yoga &  Readings A Life Enchanted Somersworth NH 1-3:30 pm


Full Moon in Libra relates to partnership, equality, justice and balance. Sometimes things have to fall out of balance in order to be restored. This eclipse shakes things up as Uranus and Pluto are involved. Those two had their 7th of 7 squares nearly two weeks ago, and this eclipse continues a pattern in Libra/Aries that started in October 2013. It could be rocky and bring up questions about situations that have been weighted heavily on one side, especially in one on one relationships.  Also, the matter of self vs. couple/duo comes up. How well are you doing in your collaborations, professionally or personally? That may be indicative of how you experience this eclipse. Legal matters are also prime for peaks and conclusions.  What happens now vibrates most strongly for two weeks, wanes a bit for two, and stirs again during May's Full Moon in one month.  Jupiter is on the Moon's side, supporting from Leo for stability, creativity, and blessings on children, expansions and educational plans to name a few. With Uranus opposing the Moon, some of this may seem unorthodox, rebellious, chaotic, or entirely unexpected.  Take some time to get your footing whatever the eclipse may bring, and remember this is felt for a few days on either side so by Saturday it could be already well in progress or not quite obvious yet. Void Moon begins at 11:59 am ET. Full Moon color is white. 


Sunday: Sun square Pluto

Yin Yoga at Maine Hatha Yoga Portland 10 am

Prenatal Yoga at Breathing Room South Portland 3 pm

Deep Stretch at Greener Postures South Portland 5:30 pm


Pluto has been a strong, though sometimes subtle, influence these late winter/early spring weeks. Again today, Pluto in Capricorn has a say. The Sun in Aries is expressive, assertive and new while Pluto in Capricorn is more detached and deep, stirring feelings, old wounds, and emotions like fear. Pluto is the shadow side while the Sun is brazen and bright. The square between these two can create conflict within your self or with another. The quickness of Aries and mysteries of Pluto don't really match. The Moon is also opposite Mars, Aries ruling planet and there's potential conflict there as well. That one may manifest more as stubborn arguments. It's not an easy day to sway an opinion, especially among the fixed signs, as this occurs in Scorpio/Taurus.  Scorpio Moon moves in at 3:04 pm. Dealing with your self, your own priorities or problems, first may be better than trying to coerce or influence someone else. Scorpio Moon is spiritual, intuitive, and private, favoring personal intentions and processes.  The Full Moon eclipse is still playing out. Today's color is indigo.  

Weekly Astrology March 23rd to March 29th, 2015

Monday: Taurus Moon


Taurus Moon negotiates as Mercury in Pisces softens strong opinions. Be willing to listen and perhaps yield to a good idea or change of plan if the research has been done and the conditions feel right. Moon and Jupiter challenge us to learn and do things more creatively. Pluto continues to delve deep into the psyche and eclipse effects continue, urging us to face depths and possibly fears. Mysteries can be solved or long term decisions  made on days like this. Actively seek information. Void of course Moon begins at 10:25 am ET until 9:23 am tomorrow. This is best suited to things you don't have to think too much about or analyze.  Build, repair, plant (indoors, perhaps), and cook. Today's color is yellow.


Tuesday: Gemini Moon, Venus sextile Neptune

Gentle Yoga 9:30-10:30 & Baby n Me Yoga 10:45-11:45 am

Scarborough Yoga 433 US Rte 1


Venus in Taurus aligns with Neptune in Pisces. Romantic and creative, these planets inspire us with beauty, attraction and love. Venus in Taurus influences commitment and settling in to a relationship or even a home.  Aquarius may want to nest, clean, or move to a better living situation.  Scorpio has the urge to couple or deepen a relationship.  Leo benefits in career and recognition for talents and strengths.   Taurus, you are energized for weeks ahead, to attract what you want and need.  Moon opposite Saturn in Gemini/Sagittarius is part of the quest for truth, and nothing less will do.  The Moon and Sun are in harmony for confident decisions and statements.  Today's color is light blue.


Wednesday: Sun trine Saturn

Hot Yoga Maine Hatha Yoga 12-1pm

Yin Yoga Scarborough Yoga 4 pm followed by Gentle Flow 6 pm


Saturn encourages wisdom and mastery. In Sagittarius, Saturn influences higher learning and worldly experiences and also points out the truth again and again, if necessary.  The Aries Sun and Saturn are in harmony. Use your power wisely, not abusively.  See where there's an opportunity to clarify. Show respect. Leaders need to step up where there's a lack of order.  Uranus and Jupiter support the Gemini Moon today with quick thinking and expansiveness.  Try to be open minded, even if that doesn't mean changing your mind. Take in ideas and information.  Apply for programs, college, or global opportunities. Explore. Today's color is gold.


Thursday: Cancer Moon


Gemini Moon is void of course from 8:35 am to 3:45 pm. Unwind, release mental energy, write, and breathe deeply.  Create a feeling or space of calm.  People will tend to be active, social and scatter brained, possibly multi-tasking and not necessarily focused enough to finish.  Communicate clearly.  Cancer Moon moves in at 3:45 ET. Home and family are Cancer's domain.  Have a nice meal. Be gentle with advice.  Connect on an emotional level. Notice who needs some extra care.  Today's color is white.


Friday: Moon trine Mercury

RoZoYo® Yoga at Breathing Room 12-1pm (final date for this class) 


The Cancer Moon aligns with Mercury, in Pisces until Monday. Have sensitive conversations. Though there's a defensive nature to Cancer Moon, it's a good time to aim for resolution or forgiveness. Broach things gently, with compassion and an ability to see how the other party might feel.  Attend to home related issues or just enjoy refreshing your space for spring. In business, action leans conservative, like saving and investing, and also personal in terms of relationships with clients and the public. Today's color is blue. 

Saturday: Cancer Moon

1-3 pm. Register in advance on the site www.freeportyogaco.com or in studio


Cancer Moon is in harmony with Mercury and square to Mars. The square can make people edgy and ultra sensitive. Be thoughtful and avoid potential disputes or moods. Mercury and the Moon bring more ease with communication and plans. The comfort zone may feel best today. Take care of people and things close to home. The void of course Moon is 9:58 pm ET until 1:46 pm, and that's when Mars prods the Moon. You can head off an argument by thinking before you act boldly or insensitively. Quiet talks are favored.  Wear white.


Sunday: Leo Moon


Yin Yoga 10-11:30 am at Maine Hatha Yoga Portland

Prenatal Yoga 3-4:15 pm at Breathing Room South Portland


Leo Moon arrives at 1:48 am ET, brightening outlooks and creating enthusiasm. The Moon and Sun are an inspiring pair today, with fire energy of Leo and Aries. Initiating and pioneering, lead the way to exciting ventures, travels, and changes. It might be easier to feel enthusiasm rather than anxiety about change.  Saturn in Sagittarius adds the 3rd fire sign to the mix. Saturn encourages the wise move versus the reckless one.  Curb impulses without losing excitement. Today is the day for a next, right move. It could be a small action, a step, or a bigger decisions to step out there and go for an opportunity. Leo, Aries and Sagittarius are likely to feel the inspiration. Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio may pursue something practical and worthwhile related to prosperity and stability. We are all midway between eclipses and positive responses to change have lots of power now. Act with best interests at heart and with courage while the Moon's in Leo, the heart and spine sign. Today's color is red.

Monday: Aquarius Moon, Uranus square Pluto

Gentle Yoga 9:30-10:30 Willar Square Studio


From 4:02 to 6:14 am the Moon is void of course and then shifts to Aquarius. It's a day of finishing business of all sorts. Mercury squares Saturn (retrograde) and Uranus squares Pluto. A challenge to settle or finalize something comes on this last exact square of Uranus and Pluto, the 7th since June of 2012.  Uranus destroys to recreate and Pluto unearths what's deep within. Globally, this can trigger protests, revolutions, and other sudden events. Personally, allow and acknowledge your true feelings and motives for actions. If you're inviting huge change, or even something that will result in chaos for a while, it's best you are honest with yourself about the reasons. Pluto calls for a look within. The Phoenix's rise from the ashes is a metaphor you can associate with this Uranus/Pluto square, which impacts far beyond one day. Just know this is the end of a pattern.  Aquarius Moon helps architect dreams and plans as you finalize agreements and in some cases burn a bridge to make sure you don't try to go back. At minimum, important discussions take place today. Old vs. new, traditional vs. radical are themes. Today's color is turquoise. 


Tuesday: Venus in Taurus

Gentle Yoga 9:30-10:30 Scarborough Maine Yoga

Baby n Me Yoga 10:45-11:45 same location


Today is dynamic as Uranus and Mars form sextiles to the Aquarius Moon. Actions that create change are likely, and this can be exciting or unsettling. The Moon is also opposite Jupiter in Leo for more about consensus and compromises. Deciding on the scale of something or how much to spend or invest are a couple of way this manifests (Cancer and Capricorn). Exciting events in personal lives (Leo and Aquarius) may also require some collaboration and sorting out.  Venus moves to Taurus, an earthy spot for the planet of love and harmony, inspiring beautification of the home and other spaces and a physical focus in our relationships (sex and affection). Comfort and love are themes for the weeks ahead, especially Taurus, Capricorn and Scorpio).  The solar eclipse arrives Friday and the vibrations are in the air already. The void of course Moon begins at 2:18 pm. Today's color is blue.


Wednesday: Pisces Moon

Hot Yoga 12-1 Maine Hatha Yoga Portland

Restorative Yoga 6-7:15 pm Greener Postures West Falmouth


Pisces Moon moves in at 6:58 am ET. Mercury and Neptune are active in Pisces too. Emotions, dreams and imagination peak. Mercury and Neptune meet at 4:49 am. Art and writing benefit from this burst of creativity. Neptune's downside is the urge to escape. Using mind altering substances including alcohol could have stronger effects than anticipated.  Minimize anything that clouds your judgment.  Venus harmonizes with the Moon and our sense of beauty is enhanced.  Today's color is pale green. 


Thursday: Pisces Moon


The Moon waned and will start a new cycle with a powerful solar eclipse at the tail end of Pisces. Metamorphosis and transformation are characteristic of this time as are endings and beginnings. Think what's coming full circle, but realize there is rarely a way to prepare for an eclipse. They have their own agenda and you are less in control of the events and more in control of your decisions and responses to changes around you.  The Moon aligns with Pluto, planet of mysteries. Intuition is important. Today's color is black.


Friday: Solar Eclipse in Pisces, Sun to Aries, Spring Equinox

RoZoYo® Eclipse Yoga (Gentle Flow/Restorative) 12-1 Breathing Room South Portland


Today is both simple and powerful. The familiar journey into spring begins as the Sun changes signs at 6:45 pm. Before that, a New Moon (solar) eclipse in Pisces at 5:36 am rolls in and then the Moon moves to Aries at 6:28 am. On the cusp of the last and first signs, this eclipse is about endings and beginnings. The sabian symbol for this degree of Pisces is a boy who idealizes a rock formation that resembles a face. Over time he grows to look like the image he's been focused on. You may find yourself transforming and morphing into what you've idealized for a very long time. Starting anew always requires leaving something in the past. This could be a part of yourself you'd like to shed or minimize or it may be a place or relationship that must go so you can regenerate. Eclipse events are usually unpredictable in terms of how these things occur. For two weeks, this Pisces eclipse power is strongest. On April 4th, there's a lunar eclipse in Libra to continue the pattern of change. Saturn and the Moon harmonize in Sagittarius and Aries at 2:14 pm ET, in a quest for raw, unadulterated truth. Today's color is white. 


Saturday: Aries Moon conjunct Uranus and Mars

Full RoZoYo® Workshop with Readings 1-3:30 pm Riverbend Yoga Yarmouth, Maine (advance registration required)


The phrase "off to the races" comes to mind with this action in Aries, sign of initiations, birth, and battle. Try to stay away from the latter. Uranus and Mars can be a destructive influence. If you're battling, make it your demons you're out to destroy. The Jupiter/Moon trine in Leo/Aries is energy of re-creation. Play may be rambunctious and competitive, but you don't have to lose the spirit of fun. Today is highly favorable for new endeavors, yet volatile with the warrior planet and the rebellious one both having their say. Don't go too far with things or forget to be sensitive and caring in your enthusiasm or pursuits. Void of course Moon starts at 6:51 pm to 6:40 am ET. Today's color is red.


Sunday: Taurus Moon

Yin Yoga 10-11:30 Maine Hatha Yoga Portland

Prenatal Yoga 3-4:15 pm Breathing Room South Portland

Deep Stretch Yoga 5:30-7 pm Greener Postures South Portland


The Moon in Taurus can make things feel more stable. If the eclipse was tumultuous or the Aries conjunctions un-grounding, root in physical work, yoga or healing, building and tasks, and organic processes. Venus, also in Taurus, aligns with Pluto for a realistic assessment of relationship and the role you want when in partnership.  Single or committed, feelings about love and one on one relationships are up for enlightenment (particularly for the earth signs and Scorpio.) Today's color is rose/pink.

Monday: Scorpio Moon

Gentle Flow at Breathing Room South Portland 4 pm


The Scorpio Moon comes along at 9:10 am ET with no aspects to other planets today. Clear your mind and hone in on one or two important matters. Scorpio Moon time is geared toward acting on long term investments and decisions. Act with permanence in mind. Farmer's Almanac says it's a good day for planting and fishing, and in our culture use that as a metaphor for initiating, producing and reaping benefits from your efforts. Emotionally, Scorpio Moon holds on and is both loyal and possessive. Try not to hover or invade personal privacy even if you're outrageously curious or interested. Today's color is maroon.


Tuesday: Mars trine Jupiter

Gentle Flow at 9:30 & Baby n Me Yoga 10:45 Scarborough Yoga


Jupiter influences with a square to the Moon and harmonious aspect to Mars. Jupiter expands and opens, doors and minds. Planet of wisdom and culture aligns with active Mars. Education, learning through travel and experience, and acting on expansion plans is favored. Scorpio Moon is where some resistance comes in. This sign is not keen on quick change and there will be some convincing to do if you're involved with Scorpio type people. If you're eager to jump into something new or untried, give the more cautious folks a chance to think about it. State your case and, if you can, show evidence of how things will work or look. Jupiter and Mars are enthusiastic about applying knowledge and skill, right away. Open your own or someone else's opportunities to grow. Neptune and the Moon combine for imagination and versatility. Today's color is red.


Wednesday: Mars conjunct Uranus, Mars square Pluto 

Hot Express26 12-1 at Maine Hatha Yoga Portland


Take your time, hold your temper and don't trigger anyone else's as Mars and Uranus are an explosive combination in Aries. Mars and Pluto have repeatedly formed this square and it's not an easy pattern. On the upside, you can purge something once and for all though it may require burning a bridge, metaphorically speaking. Sometimes that bridge is all within yourself, with Pluto involved. Strong awakenings and acting in the face of fear are a couple of today's themes. Bravery and strength are called for. The Moon moves from Scorpio at 7:30 pm ET and is void from 3:46 pm to 7:30. Be especially calm and safe during those hours since judgement wanes and today is already full of possible stressors. Wear indigo blue for intuition and higher consciousness. Rise above any indiscretion or fury. Transformations are in process.


Thursday: Sagittarius Moon, Mercury in Pisces


Read Wednesday's forecast above since aspects like those last more than one hour or one day. All of that is still applicable. Mercury moves to Pisces until March 30th, at 11:30 pm tonight. Today and tomorrow are impacted. It maybe better to wait a couple of days if you're making an important final decision since Mercury rules information and thought processes. As Mercury shifts, go easy on yourself and others. People may feel sensitive or  more introverted. Sagittarius Moon and Saturn meet in a quest for truth and wisdom. Jupiter and Uranus act with this Moon, urging change and openness. Open your mind to ideas, but don't be pushed into anything too fast. Today's color is purple. 


Friday: Sagittarius Moon


The Moon aligns with Mars, Venus and the Sun. Moon and Sun are square. Work on self confidence and deal with some resistance courageously. Without squares there would be no growth, so consider the Moon and Sun as a healthy amount of stress and challenge. Mars and Venus are in harmony with the Moon helping relationships thrive and encouraging us to be active and involved. Avoid being passive or giving up. Don't rush, but also don't procrastinate. Slow, steady steps.  Void of course Moon at 7:11 pm ET until 2:40 am Saturday. Today's color is pink.


Saturday: Capricorn Moon, Saturn retrograde


Saturn is retrograde as of 11:02 am ET. Don't worry too much about Saturn retrograde since though things may move a bit slower it's usually a wise thing. Saturn will remain retrograde in Sagittarius until June 14th, then move back into Scorpio for unfinished business, and shift direct again in early August. Capricorn is Saturn's home sign, so this is a very Saturn/Capricorn day and it's also Satur-day, the natural day related. Capricorn values order and accomplishment. Saturn urges responsibility and owning your actions and words. Mercury aligns with the Moon for discussions and plans. Neptune aligns for creative thinking and a bit of softness or whimsy.  Productivity will feel necessary and/or good today. Wear green.


Sunday: Moon conjunct Pluto

Yin Yoga 10-11:30 at Maine Hatha Yoga Portland

Prenatal Yoga 3-4:15pm at Breathing Room South Portland


Capricorn Moon meets Pluto, squares Mars and Uranus and aligns with the Sun in Pisces. Mixed emotions, revisiting disagreements or strain, and trying to find some softness, forgiveness, or ease characterize these aspects if you can blend them. Try not to get too caught up in "what's wrong." Look for solutions and avoid old triggers that accomplish nothing but grief. Seek a companion or partner who complements you in skill or approach. Do something worthwhile together.  Rearrange at home or work. Today's color is gray.

                                               Weekly March 2nd to 8th, 2015

Monday: Leo Moon conjunct Jupiter

The fires of Leo Moon are fed by Saturn, Mars, Venus, Uranus and Jupiter today. Trines indicate quick developments and speedy responses. Jupiter meets the Moon for blessings on health, children, and travels. Learning opportunities and mentors or wise advisors appear. Seek what you need. Set something up for success. If there's a down side to this day, it's that sudden changes and action can be startling and require time for adjustment. Foster positive attitudes. Today's color is red.


Tuesday: Jupiter trine Uranus

Gentle Yoga 9:30-10:30 Baby n Me Yoga 10:45-11:45 Scarborough Yoga 


A continuation of yesterday's energy and activity as Jupiter and Uranus align in Leo/Aries. Fire sign action inspires, motivates, and drives. The Moon is also opposing Mercury, and void of course after that, 3:43 am ET. That means you may be taking important measures, interviewing for or accepting opportunities, and planning travel with a void of course Moon. The one thing I'd advise against is a major purchase, particularly a spontaneous one. Keep good track of paperwork, receipts and documentation of what you engage in. It will be hard to hold back under these aspects. Invite in the luck of Jupiter. People will tend to show their true colors, express freely, and act quickly. Full Moon is close. Wear gold.


Wednesday: Virgo Moon, Venus conjunct Uranus, trine Jupiter, square Pluto, Moon square Saturn, opposite Jupiter

Hot Yoga, 26 postures at Maine Hatha Yoga Portland 12-1


What a full day! Venus dominates. The planet of love meets the planet of sudden nature and surprises, Uranus. Relationships heat up and changes come or finally become public. Venus and Jupiter are in harmony and this is a blessing on love for Aquarius, Leo, and Aries.  Venus square Pluto relates to relationship with self as well as to secrets and awakenings.  Much about love and romance during this Full Moon will be unanticipated, and there's more and similar on the way with next month's lunar eclipse on April 4th. The same planets that engage today will be active then, with a Libra/Aries eclipse (minus Venus, who will then be in Taurus). 

The Moon is in Virgo from 6:58 am ET and is Full Thursday at 1:05 pm.  Moon opposite Neptune is reminder to use good judgement with entrusting personal information or your heart. Saturn also reminds us of wisdom from experience. Don't repeat something that hurt or disappointed you in the first place.  Today's color is pink.


Thursday: Full Moon in Virgo


Pluto is a player during this Virgo Full Moon. Solutions, decisions and also illuminated awareness come. Resolving something is obvious, and many will find flexible plans or complete projects, classes and tasks with Virgo's earthy sensibility. The more subtle effect is Pluto's unearthing of dreams, feelings, and what's been hidden. An opportunity to recognize something in yourself and integrate it fully is very valuable. So in simpler words, you may purge an old issue or revive part of yourself you've been stifling. The Pisces Sun also lines up with Pluto, and Pisces may realize what draws people in, Capricorn does some successful research and Leo sees reason to shift from the ordinary and use money or time differently. These are just some of the possibilities that are awakened during the Full Moon. Pisces and Virgo are relationship focused, whether in love or not, and your self and roles you take in one on one relationships are shifting now and also next month. Full Moon is at 1:05 pm and the void of course Moon begins at 1:36 pm ET. Today's color is white. 


Friday: Void of course Moon

RoZoYo® Yoga at Breathing Room South Portland 12-1 pm


The Full Moon lingers, void of course in Virgo and there are no other significant aspects with planets today. Libra Moon arrives at 7:53 pm ET. Be flexible. Maintaining focus could be a challenge, yet is necessary for Full Moon agreements and developments. It's a good day to clean house and get some physical energy channeled into moderate workouts, yoga, and other healthy activities. Pushing your body is not recommended during Full Moon time. Libra Moon tonight is fine for social plans, but appears quieter than the usual outgoing nature of this sign. Let things settle in and try not to push yourself too hard. Eat healthy and your Virgo related digestive system will thank you. Today's color is blue.


Saturday: Libra Moon opposite Mars


Daylight Savings time begins in the USA overnight tonight. Just a reminder that at 2 am the clock moves forward an hour. Libra Moon is here for the whole weekend, moving on Monday at 9:10 am. Justice is always a Libra theme. Mars instigates conflict where there's imbalance this weekend. If you're not being fair, prepare to answer to the other party.  Saturn in Sagittarius aims for honesty and clarity too. Chances are, there will be matters to sort out and clear up today. Wear black. 


Sunday: Libra Moon opposite Venus and Uranus


Sunday and Saturday share themes. Venus brings love and harmony more into focus as well. Disagreements could be strong and come on quickly. Mercury and Jupiter are in harmony with the Moon, easing some of that if you can be honest and have an open mind.  Injustice and unfairness are the root of this weekend's dark side.  Sunday night is a good time for a much needed talk, but do be  polite.  Take care of the skin under Libra Moon all weekend long. Today's color is lavender.

Monday: Taurus Moon, Sun square Saturn


First, note that Venus and Mars met yesterday in Aries inducing states of exuberance, passionate love, and initiating new times in relationships. Act on what you're excited about. Libra, Aries, and Sagittarius especially benefit in the love area. Cancer, career possibilities are all stirred up and you must be willing to lead, be a positive influence and a risk taker, using prior knowledge and ability to make a bold move. Remember that some of you have strong Aries in your chart (for example your Ascendant, Moon or Mercury) regardless of your Sun Sign and apply this enthusiastic energy however it shows up. Taurus Moon is strong for decisions today. The Sun also squares Saturn, and education, global opportunities and travel aspects are stimulated for major adventures and changes. Pisces and Sagittarius host this activity and feel it along with Virgo and Gemini. There's nothing complacent about this period's forecast. Do something positive that lifts you to a different level or shifts your location, body, or thought process. So many aspects in the heavens today, but mainly do what you feel and know on a deep level. Take ideas or feelings and make something of them. Void of course Moon begins at 9:57 pm for more than 24 hours. Today's color is green.


Tuesday: Venus trine Saturn

Gentle Yoga at Scarborough Yoga 9:30-10:30

Baby n Me at Scarborough Yoga 10:45-11:45


The Moon is void of course for many hours, arriving in Gemini at 11:54 pm. During void of course Moon, be cautious or judicious with spending, decisions, and anything you need to sign. Today is good for physical activity, building, and creating in the kitchen or studio (which can also be your garage!). Venus and Saturn align in Aries and Sagittarius inciting relationship discussions and decisions. There's no fluff here. If it's due, have a serious talk about where you two are at. The result could be time off from the relationship or going forward with more structure, honesty and understanding. Forget about fear and think more about what you need and how you want to live. Sagittarius is a philosophical place for Saturn, planet of intention and commitment. Today's color is yellow. 


Wednesday: Mars trine Saturn, Sun conjunct Neptune

Hot Yoga at Maine Hatha Yoga (formerly Maine Bikram) 12-1pm


This is truly Saturn's week as dominant force. Today Saturn aligns with Mars in Aries and opposes the Gemini Moon. Debates are likely with that opposition. Try to listen and be adaptable and think flexibly. If both parties are unyielding, things could get nasty. Avoid gossip and untruths that will have consequences. Saturn and Mars urge consistent action plans and growth through challenges. Get serious about plans and projects that require lots of energy and innovation. Explore ideas and knowledge you can apply, perhaps immediately. The universe encourages you to bust through stagnant energy, lethargy, and laziness. Move consciously and definitively, or everything around you will shift and leave you sitting wondering what happened. Today's color is black.


Thursday: Void of Course Moon


Gemini Moon is void of course from 3:43 am ET until Friday at 7:50 am. The second long void Moon this week does not provide the most reliable energy. People may forget, be late, postpone, and make errors in judgement. Keep life simple today. Uranus and Jupiter align with the Moon from Aries and Leo, fire signs. A burst of energy, the urge to socialize, and surprising events result. Give things a bit of extra thought before jumping in. Today's color is orange. 


Friday: Cancer Moon

RoZoYo® Yoga for Cancer Moon waxing 12-1pm Breathing Room South Portland (intro package $40 for an unlimited month!)


The Cancer Moon moves in at 7:50 am and lasts until Sunday at 6:34 pm ET. Avoid sensitive topics and issues during the first half of the weekend. Cancer Moon leans toward defensive and unwilling to confront productively. Things also tend to get dramatic  and tense as the Moon squares Mars in Aries. Avoid people who take advantage, victimize or generally drain your energy. Though it's not a good time to confront, the urge may be there. Count to 10 and breathe before you start anything that could take a bad turn. On a happier note, Moon and Neptune lead to romance and sentiment tonight especially for Cancer, Pisces, Capricorn and Scorpio. Today's color is light blue. 


Saturday: Cancer Moon


Void of course Moon starts at 12:53 pm. Get shopping done in the morning. The Moon squares Venus and some couples will need to sort things out and find a place of balance and agreement. Venus rules the skin and it's good day to do something nourishing and hydrating for skin that's weathered or tired. Touchy subjects are best avoided unless you're up for an argument or big deal as the Moon squares Uranus in heated Aries and opposes Pluto in Capricorn, sometimes a dark place. Chill out, eat well and nurture yourself or someone else who needs extra reassurance and care this week. Today's color is white. 


Sunday: Cancer/Leo Moon

Yin Yoga at Maine Hatha Yoga 10-11:30 am

Prenatal Yoga at Breathing Room South Portland 3-4:15pm


Void Moon starts the day. Sleep late and keep things simple, ideally. Mercury and Uranus shake things up in Aquarius/Aries. This can manifest as fabulous ideas, invention, and re-creation or it can be startling news. Act on original ideas. Act quickly if something seems out of whack. Be observant. Mercury also opposes Jupiter in Leo. Jupiter is the benefactor and planet of honesty and growth. Mercury is the messenger. Developments in all those areas including higher learning opportunities and long distance travel are a couple of the effects to expect. Leo Moon at 6:34 pm is outgoing and creative and extends into the wee hours of Wednesday. Get focused on things that make you happy and excited on Sunday evening and into the new week. Today's color is purple.

Monday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon

Yin Yoga 4-5p Scarborough Yoga 433 US Rte 1

The Capricorn Moon makes it a good business day even though there's a holiday in the USA. Keep things in motion. This time of lunar cycle is also for clearing out anything that's accumulated or bogged down. In the northeast I believe that includes more snow! Balance physical labor with rejuvenating workouts or healing practices like massage. This is earth sign energy. The Moon is void of course from 3:17 pm to 7:13 pm (interesting set of numbers). That's a great in between time to rest, recharge, see friends, or get to the gym or studio. Aquarius Moon moves in at 7:13 with a visionary approach. Do some planning. Venus and Mars align with the Moon today and we get along better. The Moon and Mercury meet at midnight for late night conversations and ideas that come up as you begin to rest.

Mars moves to his home sign and tomorrow Venus follows suit. This is energizing and activating. The Moon is in Pisces, meeting Neptune for creativity and romance.

Saturday: Aries Moon

Prenatal Yoga Workshop 1-3p Scarborough Yoga

The heavens show plenty to be excited about. Aries fire-starter of a Moon aligns with Uranus, Saturn, Mercury and Jupiter. The downside is too much stimulation. The upside is growth, fresh starts, and different perspective to move forward with. Whatever you do, do it with heart as Jupiter in Leo blesses those actions most. Void Moon 7:36 pm ET until 7:22 pm Sunday. Do shopping today vs tomorrow. Today's color is gold.

                                     Weekly February 9th to 15th, 2015

Monday: Void of Course Moon in Libra


The Moon aligns with Jupiter in Leo and the Sun in Aquarius. Void of course time starts at 6:58 am until 2:05 am ET on Tuesday.Connect for social plans or potential collaborations. It's an outgoing day. The Moon is void of course and Mercury is retrograde until Wednesday, so keep plans flexible and long term agreements saved for later in the week. This is a promising day however. Simplicity is best. Today's color is blue.


Tuesday: Scorpio Moon


The Moon moves to Scorpio at 2:05 am ET and squares Mercury. This aspect contributes to delays and stubborn disagreements. On a milder note, it might just be hard to get things done. It's a tough day to persuade someone who's fixed in ways of thinking. You might save yourself the trouble and wait until later this week. It's a good day to try and organize, focus on priorities, and grab some alone time to do what you want. The Moon aligns with Neptune at 3:15 pm ET for creative thinking, musical diversions, and possibly a nap. Today's color is maroon.


Wednesday: Mercury Direct


Mercury is direct in Aquarius at 9:57 am, but don't rush into anything. Let Mercury get stable for at least one day. The Moon is in Scorpio. Exercise self control and patience. Immerse in an important project. The Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn and Venus in Pisces and is square to the Sun. Save big decisions and purchases for another day soon. Allow yourself to be introverted or solitary if you like. That may help Pluto activate your intuition and get rational rather than needlessly anxious. Venus and the Moon combine for romance. It's a good date night, but maybe not as much for a first date. Begin to unwind and open to possibilities just ahead. Today's color is black.


Thursday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon


An active and adventurous spirit moves in with the Sagittarius Moon at 11:46 am and continues through Friday. The Moon is void of course from 12:32 am ET to 11:46 am. Keep those hours simple and relaxed. Mercury, Mars and Saturn align with Sagittarius Moon. Get travel plans settled, work on college and other applications, and generally take action on what you want. Saturn leads to an ambitious, take charge of your own life attitude. It's also a sorting out time. Get rid of what you don't need and anything that holds you back, including fear.  Be aware of escapist tendencies and illusion in the way of honesty tonight. Today's color is red. 


Friday: Sagittarius Moon


Honesty is a theme now. Move past Mercury retrograde (done now!) misunderstandings. Ask for clear information and answers. Today is good for adventures, road trips, and a change of scenery. Uranus adds a surprise factor, so stay alert and be a bit careful. This can also add to spontaneity and fun. Jupiter adds happy tones from Leo. It's a day to learn, experience, and be light in spirit. Try to get any baggage out of the way, literally or otherwise. Clear your own path. I like this better than tomorrow as a shopping day or date night. Today's color is purple. 


Saturday: Valentine's Day


The Moon and Sun are in harmony and that helps us with confidence and decision making. The Moon cruises through Sagittarius until 5:24 pm ET and is void of course at 10:15 am until then. It's not the day to spend lots of  money on a gift. It is a good time to relax and have fun. Capricorn Moon tonight gets a little bit of romance from Neptune in Pisces. The Moon sign is not very demonstrative or affectionate for Valentines Day. Yet it's certainly not awful and you might make the best of very simple plans. The evening is meant to be realistic and down to earth. Today's color is green.


Sunday: Capricorn Moon


The Moon squares Uranus and meets Pluto. Quiet times, studies, and reflection is favored. It's an organizing and weeding out time before New Moon in Wednesday. Prepare for anything from a test to a change at home. With Pluto involved, get quiet so intuition can speak. Stay out of arguments or anything controversial today. Things can flare, especially where matters of dominance and power are concerned. Wear gray.

                                    Weekly February 2nd to February 8th, 2015

Monday: Sun trine Uranus


The Sun and Uranus align as the Moon is near full. Uranus also contacts the Full Moon tomorrow. This planet brings surprises, deconstructs in order to make way for brand new things, and can add to any kind of instability.  News breaking early this week throws us off in some cases, however it may also be welcome and seem overdue. Aquarius Sun and Uranus in Aries lead to original ideas and inventive solutions, news about radical changes that may include changing of the guard in leadership positions and new systems to replace the current ones. Scientific thinking is favored today. Leo Moon moves in at 12:41 pm ending a void of course Moon in Cancer. The Moon is full in Leo tomorrow at 6:09 pm. Saturn in Sagittarius aligns with the Moon to organize us around educational and travel plans and structure even the wildest ideas. Today's color is orange.


Tuesday: Leo Full Moon


The Moon is Full at 6:09 pm ET in Leo, sign of children, creativity and luck. The Moon is opposite Mercury and the Sun and trine to Uranus. Optimistic and eventful, the Full Moon sheds light that leads us to decisions, stirs passions, and revolves around children, parenting and self expression. News isn't always easy to adjust to, so let things process and swirl around before making judgments, especially with Mercury retrograde for one more week. Cancer and Capricorn, financial and legal things are highlighted.  Leo and Aquarius, your long term relationships and commitments are up for discussions and renewal.  Aries and Libra, this may be a romantic, friendship focused, and overall interesting Full Moon for you. Gemini and Sagittarius, communication, education and travel plans are in the spotlight. More signs included in tomorrow's forecast. Today's color is gold.


Wednesday: Full Moon


Full Moon vibes, news, and developments continue. Leo Moon is void of course all day from 12:31 am ET until 12:46 am Thursday.  The Moon and Jupiter meet for luck, growth, abundance and intelligence. The other qualities may include drama and exaggeration. See forecasts above for how your sign may experience any of that. Pisces and Virgo, this Full Moon and Jupiter relate to your routine, your health, and ability to focus. Get centered on yourself and what you need. Taurus, home and family are the driving force whether you're moving, making changes, or resolving a relationship matter. Scorpio, career opportunity or recognition is likely for you. Go for the lead role. Today's color is purple. 


Thursday: Virgo Moon


Mercury and Saturn align on this Virgo Moon day. Mercury is still retrograde, however options and solutions may become clear just past the Full Moon. Educational options, travel plans, and significant discussions are some of the results as these two planets connect. It could be a time for a trial basis and flexible arrangement that may become permanent once you see how it works.  The Moon squares Saturn and opposes Neptune. Do your best to see things for what they are versus what appears on the surface. Use your instincts for what's real versus fabricated. Today's color is black. 


Friday: Oppositions


Three oppositions tell today's story. Venus and Mars in Pisces oppose the Moon and the Sun is opposite Jupiter. Sun and Jupiter bubble with enthusiasm, friendship, love, collaborations, and generosity. The Moon opposite Mars can be moody. Venus increases the relationship aspect particularly for Virgo, Pisces, Taurus and Scorpio. Oppositions relate to the extremes, and your experience will be colored by what's going on for you. Expect things to be amplified. Void Moon from 5:09 pm to 1:44 pm Saturday. Today's color is pink.


Saturday: Libra Moon


The Moon moves to Libra at 1:44 pm after a void of course time. Morning may be confusing or it might just be hard to get moving. The Moon aligns with Mercury retrograde and with Saturn. Rethinking the past and structuring your next actions with a plan makes sense today. Look at possibilities and leave some flex to the plan until after the 11th. There's a call to be as honest and fair as possible. Both will create more ease in the  long run. Today's color is lavender.


Sunday: Libra Moon


Libra Moon squares Pluto and opposes Uranus. Confrontations happen without notice. Problems will generally be related to what's not fair or balanced.  Not all of us will experience this. It will tend to be part of a long term pattern. Venus and Pluto align for deep insights about love and relationship. If you're not acknowledging how you truly feel, today it may be hard to escape.   Meaningful actions and conversations can be the result of these two planets in harmony. Today's color is black.

 

                                   Weekly January 26th to February 1st, 2015

Monday: Taurus Moon


The Moon starts void of course 9:23 to 11:37 am ET in Aries and shifts to Taurus. Those hours are prone to rushing and scrambling to pull things together. Moon and Venus put us in social moods, and it will be a challenge to focus or get the group down to the business at hand. Taurus Moon improves focus, slows us down (which complements the Mercury retrograde we're in), and aligns with Neptune for ability to take imaginative ideas and express them with construction, art, music and writing to name a few possibilities. Today's color is pink.


Tuesday: Taurus Moon


Taurus is an earth sign grounded in handiwork, building and manifesting.  The Moon is contacted by Mercury retrograde for overdue discussions that lead to action. Though you may be tempted to enter a long term agreement under these aspects, a trial basis is best until after February 11th. Jupiter also squares the Moon from Leo and we aim for growth and bringing things to fruition. It's a good time to get back to a project you want to successfully complete, in due time. Mars in Pisces aligns harmoniously with the Moon adding to the creative and emotional tones in the air. Do something cathartic. Mercury retrograde is a time for process. Channel feelings into productive things like cooking, doing the dishes, making art, and writing your memoir. Void of course Moon is from 9:18 pm ET to 5:36 pm Wednesday. Today's color is green.


Wednesday: Void of course Moon


The Moon is in that void of course transition time and it can create a bit of a fog. Mercury is retrograde too, so judgement calls may be unreliable. Second guessing is a good thing right now. News comes fast and furious with Mercury and Uranus aligned. Ingenuity, originality and the unusual are results of those two teaming in Aquarius and Aries. Act slowly and thoughtfully though. Write down insights for future action. The Gemini Moon is opposite Saturn and square to Venus tonight, testing our close relationships and ability to listen and negotiate fairly and honestly. Today's color is yellow. 


Thursday: Gemini Moon


This part of the week is full of itself. I'm laughing and serious at the same time. News may be unexpected or weird during this Gemini Moon. It might be hard to know what to think or believe. People may demand quick responses. Don't go down that road. Take your sweet time and find your inner peace as well as something reasonable with others who can't quite do that. Having said that, it's a very social day as the Moon aligns with Mercury and the Sun, and you could enjoy the company of funny, entertaining, happy friends including people you haven't seen in a long while. Today's color is white. 


Friday: Gemini Moon Void of Course


The Moon is void from 4:24 am ET until Saturday 2:09 am. Take your time in every way. Read a book that expands your perspective or take a short journey out of town. The more you can flow with whatever comes up, the better. The Sun and Mercury retrograde meet for revisiting people and places from the past. This is an expressive conjunction and some announcements will come retroactively. What you expected months or weeks ago becomes public on days like this.  Teamwork is favored. Mars and Pluto align for some serious insight. Aries, Capricorn, and Scorpio experience this most personally while Virgo is most likely to come to realizations about relationships and friendships. It's a Mercury retrograde peak. Today's color is silver.


Saturday: Cancer Moon


Cancer Moon turns us toward personal priorities, life at home, and family matters of all kinds.  Clean the house, bake a cake, and find uplifting things to do. It's a slow down time, but during Cancer Moon you don't want too much sluggish energy to take over. Drink lots of fresh water and eat nourishing foods. The belly can be sensitive during Cancer Moon time. Notice what you're taking in. The environment will also have an effect on mood. Aim for comfort and soothing. Venus and Neptune in Pisces align with the Moon for romance and creativity. It's a good date night. Today's color is light blue.


Sunday: Cancer Moon Void of Course


The Moon is void of course from 8:37 am until 12:41 pm Monday ET. Interesting day for the big game in the USA since errors in judgement, forgetfulness and lack of focus are likely. The Moon opposes Pluto and squares Uranus. This always makes for challenging times related to recurring patterns. Uranus is the wild card and brings on what's not expected or what we may not be ready to deal with.  Venus and Neptune meet in Pisces for love and heart. Cancer, Pisces and Virgo are most likely to be in the midst of a happily romantic weekend. We are also close to the Full Moon and emotions are heightened. Try to be understanding this weekend even if you're irked. Today's color is white.

                                        Weekly January 19th to 25th, 2015


Monday: Void of course Moon


Moon in Capricorn is void from 5:54 am to 7:59 am on Tuesday. It's a great vacation day and a good time to get organized and clean. Today is not the most favorable for shopping though you may be tempted. Make sure you can exchange what you buy. Back up files now since Mercury retrograde begins Wednesday. Save receipts and give yourself lists, prompts and a calendar to keep track of appointments and when bills are due. Venus opposes Jupiter and may be pleasurable for lovers and those of you growing businesses, especially creative ones. Mars and Neptune activate imagination, dreams, and the ability to make tangible things from wild ideas. Build or create something today. It's the last full day of Capricorn birthdays, the day before New Moon and a natural time to be reconsidering a decision you thought was final. Wear navy blue.


Tuesday: New Moon in Aquarius, Sun in Aquarius


Aquarius activity has been going on for weeks with Mercury and Venus, and now the Sun moves in at 4:43 am. New Moon in Aquarius arrives at 8:14 am ET. Aquarius energizes community, friendship, and inventive ideas. A good blend of scientific and intellectual thinking and personable, extroverted, and creative traits is the beauty of a strong Aquarius time. The "new" of this New Moon may be more about reinventing and rediscovering. It's a time to going back to see what's relevant again and might be renewed. That includes relationships, but do so cautiously and without promises until after February 11th. Mercury retrograde begins tomorrow. Find some structure to support your dreams and pursuits. That includes wise advice under the influence of Saturn in Sagittarius. Today's color is light blue.


Wednesday: Mercury retrograde in Aquarius


Mercury retrograde is official at 10:54 am. We've been experiencing the foreshadow of this time for days now. Today is full of news, communication, and surprises. Think before you respond and sift through information for truths, fallacies, and what's questionable. Take your time for these three weeks. Be particularly cautious with what you promise and what you spend money on. It's not a good time for a bet or risk. Venus in Aquarius makes this a very likely time for reuniting with a lover. Do that with few expectations and on a trial basis, if that's relevant to you. Leo, Aquarius, and Libra are in line for that experience as well as renewing vows and considering decisions and next moves with "the one you're with".  Jupiter is opposite the Moon today sending blessings and joy and reminding us that growth is possible. Today's color is pink.


Thursday: Pisces Moon


The Moon meets both Neptune and Mars for a burst of Pisces spirit. This includes the ability to sense and feel, even without physical proof. You might feel more intuitive or emotional. Channel feelings into building, creating or even cleaning. Growth as a result of inner processes and understanding is favored now. Mercury is retrograde and anything from the past that crops up can provide deeper insight, healing or release from the past.  Mars in Pisces can agitate if you have nothing productive or cathartic to devote your energy to. Hot baths, swimming, meditation and yoga are some ways to detox and cleanse anything you don't need hanging around in the psyche or the body.  The Moon and Saturn align for stability in the face of change. Bring some order and sense to what you're feeling. Advice from reliable sources is one way to do that. Today's color is green.


Friday: Sun sextile Saturn


Aquarius Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius combine for logical thinking and action today.  Do what makes sense, especially if it's something you decided weeks ago and are now ready to act on. Mercury is retrograde so leave yourself a little loophole if you need to change course in a few weeks.  The Pisces Moon aligns with Pluto and we face feelings and fears, hopefully with optimism and a different perspective. Own it, so it doesn't prevent you from growth, change, or optimum health. The Moon is void of course 6:13 am ET until 8:31 am Saturday. This day is meant more for relaxation than for taking a lot on. Find your flow and be gentle and sensible.  Today's color is blue.


Saturday: Aries Moon


There's a push pull today and Sunday that may feel more prominent toward the later part of the weekend. Aries Moon aligns with the Sun for confidence and innovation. Saturn weighs in from Sagittarius urging higher level thinking and educational experiences. That can include learning from the trials and challenges of life.  What can you step up to, face courageously or, on the other hand, not collapse into. It's a day to stay strong.  Red is our color.


Sunday: Aries Moon


Aspects between the Moon and Pluto, Mercury, and Jupiter activate some familiar patterns. The Moon also meets Uranus, in a monthly conjunction.  Part of life that's been a challenging or wild, unpredictable ride for a long while now surfaces again for some of us. On days like this, respond carefully or not at all. Try not to let someone press those hot buttons that result in anger or fear.  Brush things off at least for the moment.  People often know they're pressing your buttons. Don't give them the satisfaction or visibly irritating you.  Mercury and Jupiter align with the Moon in a more social, fun way. Mercury is reconnecting old friends. Jupiter has the influence of luck, but this is not a good time to take chances. Just accept good fortune as it comes. Today's color is yellow.

                                          Weekly January 12th to 18th, 2015

 

Monday: Mars in Pisces


Mars moves to Pisces at 5:20 am. Ruler of fire sign Aries and co-ruler of Scorpio, Mars is not super comfortable in this emotional sign. However, creative projects can really get going and with Mercury close to retrograde now it's a fine time to enter that process. Pisces, you may feel more active and motivated or agitated for the next several weeks. Try to use that to your advantage. For all of us, channel feelings (even the not so positive ones) into tangible work, like painting, drawing, creating or even building. The Moon is in Libra with a mix of influences from other planets, so this is a day of variety, positive communication and possibly strong opposition. Libra is the sign of peace so a truce may be called for in situations where agreement can't be found. Let it go peacefully or step back at least for a couple of days. Today's color is pink.


Tuesday: Void of course Moon


The Moon is void of course at 4:46 am until 6:44 pm ET. Our judgment is compromised and impulsiveness could have a domino effect. Act rationally and deliberately. Venus and Uranus align and relationship status changes and other alliances may seem surprising. Unusual friendships form or become public. The Scorpio Moon arrives at 6:44 pm and connects with Mars in Pisces. Move into your personal process, channel into creative things, listen to music, take photos, tap into intuition and find meaning. Today's color is red.


Wednesday: Mercury sextile Uranus


Mercury and Uranus's combined energy adds up for inventive ideas, sudden clarity, and also unexpected news.  The surprise element present yesterday continues.  The Moon is in Scorpio so some of this may involve puzzles and mysteries and new information surrounding them. Scorpio is the investigative sign with a strong dose of psychic feeling. Go with a hunch. Debates may be stubborn with the Moon and Mercury squaring in Scorpio and Aquarius, two fixed and opinionated signs. Any sign may feel this way or experience this including Libra about money matters and risk taking ventures and Gemini about workplace issues or changing routines.  Tonight the Moon and Venus square and this translates into home life and relationships as well. If you know someone's opinion is strong this may not be the night to try and change his or her mind. Today's color is indigo blue.


Thursday: Mars squares Saturn


Mars in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius and there's much ado about change. Things could get emotional and dramatic around shifting situations even if they're all decided and for the best. How much structure and how much freedom or leeway is needed is part of the discussion. Emotional, sentimental feelings won't sync with cold or bold attitudes. Scorpio Moon squares Jupiter in Leo and is void of course from 6:52 pm on. It's a better not to press for answers or repeatedly try to get in touch. Some will want quiet, alone time tonight, although the evening may be more relaxed overall. Today's color is black.


Friday: Sagittarius Moon


At 3:01 am ET the Moon shifts to Sagittarius, sign of the archer. Take aim at a change in scenery today or over the weekend. Refresh your outlook. Shift relationships by adventuring together. Try to avoid boredom or feeling stuck. Cancer and Pisces, this is true for you at work while  Leo may need to get out and have a good old time with friends.  The Moon meets Saturn bringing up the business of educational and travel planning as well as the need for honesty. Today's color is turquoise.


Saturday: Sagittarius Moon


The Moon aligns with Jupiter, Venus and Mercury for a 5 star kind of day. Leo and Aquarius host those planets now, and the air and fire signs may especially enjoy all of this! It's a good day for gatherings, road trips and festivities. Do have a plan B since some things may happen very spontaneously including no-shows. Live in the moment. Take time for fun. Today's color is purple.


Sunday: Capricorn Moon


This is the practical day of the weekend. The Moon aligns with Mars and Neptune in Pisces, softening the administrative aspect of the day with some room for art, feelings and dreams.  Do something tangible with those or other business that needs attending to. Studies, finances, organization and other things that make life feel more managed and clear are favored.  We are close to Mercury retrograde and bigger decisions should be well considered and thought out. Or wait until after February 11th. Today's color is gray.

Monday: Void of Course Moon in Cancer


The Moon was Full Sunday night and is void of course until Tuesday morning. Mercury and Saturn align to bring order and stability. Remind yourself, or someone else caught up in emotion or confusion, to take a few breaths before responding or overreacting. Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury in Aquarius make an intelligent pair and help us sort things out, communicate honestly and directly, and find clarity. Speak your truth without blame. Find your allies and support team and explore options if decisions must be made imminently. Aquarius and Sagittarius, and other air and fire signs, may work well together and gather to get things done. Cancer, this Full Moon is quite personal and may include dealing with people you're unsure about. Release other people's judgments or irrational words and do what you do best. Aries, Capricorn and Cancer may want to yield some and try not to criticize or let criticism take you down.  Family and relationship issues and other ongoing unresolved issues may be up for resolution again. Mercury and Saturn help move out of pure emotion and impulsiveness and into more rational thinking and believing. Today's color is white.


Tuesday: Leo Moon


At 6:03 am ET the Moon moves to Leo. A rush of fire energy motivates and inspires. If yesterday was slow, confusing or chaotic, enjoy a very different vibe of optimism and action. To best align with this Leo Moon opposite Mercury and Venus, listen to each other, be willing to learn or try something, and compromise or find agreeable neutral plans that include some concessions. Leo Moon with Aquarius planets urge collaboration, community, and friendship. Having an open mind helps, while always trusting instincts where people are concerned.  Friendly, but somewhat detached and not too personal, might be the way to go if you're unsure how much to trust or get involved with a group or individual. Leave some time for play, creative pursuits, and connecting with friends or colleagues today. Leo and Aquarius, make relationship a priority. Wear purple today. 


Wednesday: Leo Moon


Leo Moon aligns with Uranus for exciting developments, recreating, and an element of the unexpected. Have plan B or C ready. See if changes might actually lead to better results.  It will be hard to hold on or stay trapped in a way of thinking or doing. Scrap a plan that's not working in favor of an alternate way. Today's color is red. 


Thursday: Leo Moon


Leo Moon is productive and could be prosperous as Moon and Jupiter meet in Leo at 12:07 am. Act on things you're hoping for. Be positive, assertive, and willing to learn. From 12:03 to 5:58 pm the Moon is void of course. Roll with the positive and try to keep momentum. Time off or time to celebrate and have fun could be built into the afternoon. Honor or recognize someone. Leo and Scorpio are two that might get recognition today. Shopping is not well timed 12:03 to 5:58 once the Moon opposes Mars, however earlier or later is decent for purchases. Get technical and significant upgrades done now before Mercury retrogrades later this month (21st). The Virgo Moon also favors study, writing, working with numbers, and organizing things in the evening.  Today's color is black.


Friday: Virgo Moon


The Moon opposes Neptune and aligns with Pluto. Be more realistic, try not to overlook problems or details. Confront situations with solutions rather than just criticism.  Attend to details, obligations and promises, and practical matters of life. Navy blue is today's color. 


Saturday: Virgo Moon trine Capricorn Sun


The Moon and Sun align in earth signs. That often means productivity and practical action and can help confidence in decisions. The Moon is void of course from 10:46 am on through the day and evening, so take it slow, double check and have someone edit your work or check your facts.  Get physical exercise and consider cleaning and repairing things that aren't too complex. Today's color is brown.


Sunday: Libra Moon


The Moon moves to Libra at 6:57 am and aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius today. Reasons to be more honest and fair become obvious.  Situations that need to be negotiated and where someone needs to give in a bit may benefit from these planets now. Saturn is wise and worldly in Sagittarius. Libra Moon is always geared toward one on one relationships with anyone you consider a partner. Find mutual agreement. Today's color is blue.

                                      Weekly December 29th to January 4th, 2015


Monday: Aries Moon


The Aries Moon is an impulse to action. Get things accomplished without the urgency or impulsiveness Aries Moon and Uranus can bring. Mars in Aquarius lends an inventive and original nature to processes and products in the works.  Mercury and Venus in Capricorn square the Moon and favor leaders, initiators and organizers efforts. Win someone over with confidence and assertiveness. Know that a struggle for power or a feeling of intimidation may hamper efforts, and tone down anything that could create that. Jupiter in Leo has an optimistic and spontaneous influence on social interaction and creative pursuits. It's a great day if you're not involved in a play for power.  Games will be competitive. Void of course Moon begins at 7:46 pm ET until 5:56 am Tuesday. Today's color is gold.


Tuesday: Taurus Moon


The Taurus Moon begins at 5:56 am and lasts into New Year's day. A sensual sign for the Moon, this instigates romance, good cooking, and other earthly delights. Art, design, and making from scratch are favored today. The Moon and Capricorn Sun are in harmony for a grounded, secure feeling.  Make home more comfortable or sturdy. Build, organize, and rearrange spaces.  Work with color, wood, and gemstones. Make repairs. Feel connected to beauty and tangible results.  Today's color is green.


Wednesday: Taurus Moon


The Moon and Pluto align for more earth sign activity, like Tuesday. There are also two squares today involving Jupiter in Leo and Mars in Aquarius. Though these are fixed sign squares indicating stubbornness, they also impart confidence and unyielding loyalty. It's worth working through differences to get desired results today.  If you tend to be hands on, listening or reading may add to your repertoire or help solve a stubborn problem. If you tend to be open and creative, let someone with different skills or perspective direct your energy for tangible accomplishments. All in all, connect with people or resources that complement your style. Challenge yourself. New Year's Eve is meant to be intimate, comfortable, romantic, and involve good food. Today's color is green.


Thursday: Happy New Year


The Moon moves from Taurus to Gemini after a void of course time from 7:19 am to 12:09 pm. New Year's 2015 begins with harmony in love and communication from Venus and Mercury in Capricorn.  Connect in real, meaningful ways moving from purely romantic to practical and honest as well. Relationships can really benefit and move to new levels at times like this.  Gemini Moon opposes Saturn and Mars opposes Jupiter later for a very different effect.  Avoid exaggeration, choose words with care, and be willing to scale down and reign in scattered energy.  There are many possible influences to these oppositions. Generally you may find yourself with opposing values, opinions and possibilities.  Try to avoid extravagance, drama, and statements with no action or supporting facts to back them up. Trust only what you know well. Don't be pushed for answers. Today's color is yellow. 


Friday: Gemini Moon


The Moon and Uranus align today creating spontaneous action or words. This can get you into trouble. Pause and respond thoughtfully. Enjoy lively conversation, debate, and sharing of stories with a light attitude. It's possible we shouldn't take life too seriously on a day like this. Arguments can easily flare up. Be amused rather than annoyed as much as possible.  The Full Moon is Sunday and we'll begin to feel the build up. Today's color is white.


Saturday: Gemini to Cancer Moon, Venus to Aquarius


Venus starts the Aquarius trend for the season with a move at 9:46 am and a stay for most of the month. Venus in Aquarius is sensible in love and favors collaborations, community and friendship. Leo and Aquarius benefit in love and partnership and Libra and Aries benefit from new friendships and enjoy social occasions in January. Mercury will join Venus in Aquarius on Sunday, adding to the focus on the water bearer, which is truly an air sign of intelligence and vision. Today we're in Full Moon mode as the Moon shifts to Cancer at 8:08 pm after a v.o.c time since 6:55 am. It's not a day to shop, commit or trust too willingly.  It is a time to wander, enjoy, take it easy, read, study, or write.  The Sun is active with Uranus and Pluto and there's an unreliable or strange feeling in the air.  Be aware of manipulative or dominant personalities. Announcements are likely. Give them a few days to settle in and to sort out the facts.  The Moon is full Sunday at 11:53 pm ET. Today's color is light blue. 


Sunday: Cancer Full Moon


The Full Moon is opposite Pluto and the Sun and square to Uranus. The comfort zone is a good place to be. A strong trigger to emotions, sentiment, the past and intuition, this Full Moon will be tumultuous for some and is a definite pull to home and security. If you lack roots or a grounded feeling right now, it could be a tough one.  Venus and Saturn urge commitment and order in relationships.  Create a warm feeling, be there for a friend, stay out of drama or needless opposition. Today's color is silver.

Monday: Conjunctions in Capricorn


The Moon meets Pluto, Venus, and Mercury all in Capricorn.  A high concentration of Capricorn mentality is the equivalent of being on a mission to get everything sorted out, communicated, and flowing flawlessly.  Organizing, delegating, and problem solving lead to results. Progress with goals and personal decisions for Capricorn and career happenings for Aries, relationship and commitment for Cancer, and it's all about family and home for Libra. Virgo tends to feel at home with all of this and may want to get together with friends or do festive things.  The Moon is void of course at 10:17 pm ET until 9:53 pm Tuesday. This is a better day for purchases and confident action all the way around. The New Moon of Sunday will put many of us in ambitious modes for taking care of all sort of things. Make sure your health is one of them. Capricorn is the sign of teeth, the entire skeletal system and the knees. Stay mobile without overdoing anything, especially stress on the joints. Today's color is green. 


Tuesday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon


The Moon is void of course for most of the day and night.  With void Moon in Capricorn, easy tasks and errands are favored. Major shopping or business decisions might be best put off. Saturn is about to move to Sagittarius and has one more aspect in Scorpio, to this Capricorn Moon, putting a serious spin on things and urging focus for late night hours and a to do list for morning that could even include something quite important, legal, medical, business related or goings on with the much older people in our lives. Aquarius Moon for social get togethers way after business hours. Today's color is gray.


Wednesday: Aquarius Moon


The Moon is in Aquarius, the sign of community. It's great if you're volunteering for a holiday event or gathering quite a few people together for any common reason. Mars and Uranus are active today with the Moon and each other, and it's a good idea to be extra cautious in every way. With fire, electricity, gambling, or anything you know you could get into trouble with.  The spontaneous nature of the day is also combustible.  Take care and watch out for others around you too. Merry Christmas Eve! Enjoy safely and comfortably Today's color is blue.


Thursday: Aquarius Moon


Mercury meets Pluto overnight. Secrets long held may be divulged. There's a spiritual and metaphysical influence when Pluto engages. Mercury is the messenger planet. Perhaps information comes to you in a dream or someone long forgotten gets in touch.  Mercury in Capricorn is also a trouble shooter, and finding the answer or the key to getting something accomplished is also a possible effect. The Aquarius Moon is void of course from 10:11 am to 11:07 pm ET, across from Jupiter in Leo and square to Saturn.  A collaborative effort is effective with these aspects.  Commitments and decisions made today have long lasting impact and stability. Vision is a strength of the sign Aquarius where the Moon travels this Christmas. Pisces Moon at 11:07 pm. Today's color is turquoise.


Friday: Pisces Moon


The Sun, Neptune and the Moon align today. A relaxed, easygoing, intuitive influence, the Pisces/Capricorn harmony is a mix of practical and dreamy and might help with creativity, building, or a purely restorative time.  Today's color is green.


Saturday: Pisces Moon


Pisces Moon harmonizes with Mercury and Venus for romance, softening up, and improved conversations.  Give a bit of leeway to yourself or someone else.  Relax more, tune in, and allow some sentiment in. The Moon is void of course from 10:44 am to 1:35 am Sunday. Today's color is light blue.


Sunday: Aries Moon


The Moon moves to Aries at 1:35 am. It's an active day and some will feel urgency around situations or travels today and tomorrow. Yet it's best to slow down some. Saturn, newly in Sagittarius, aligns with the Moon. It's a new cycle we'll get used to over time. Notice any way that today feels different, particularly Aries and Sagittarius who host this action.  Saturn in Sagittarius is about learning by experience, for one thing.  The Moon and Sun square. Think before you act too quickly, and know that who's dominant or in power may be a question to resolve or stay out of. Today's color is red.

                                            Weekly December 16th to 21st


Monday: Libra Moon, Uranus square Pluto


Sort out, deal with, and negotiate the best possible scenario under this Libra Moon. It's impacted by Uranus and Pluto in the other cardinal signs, Aries and Capricorn.  As those two planets square, the shadow side and things buried deep conflicts with Uranian rebelliousness. We might see this in the news. Put out intentions for peace. In personal lives, the effect will be felt most among those of you who have planets or trigger points with these planets. That's hard to predict unless you know your chart well. I recommend avoiding anything out of the ordinary or risky today and the two days before and after. Reconstructing feelings and processing emotional events will be one effect. Cancer and Libra are the opposite signs and relationship, home, career, and very personal things can come up with this square.  Venus and Mars are involved with the Moon today and relationships are in the forefront for reconciling and responding to, with care and thought. This is not the time to confront volatile people or situations. Let it go for now and through December. Today's color is  lavender.


Tuesday: Libra Moon


A continuation of yesterday's activity is likely as the Libra Moon triggers with Uranus and Pluto.  Yet Jupiter in Leo harmonizes with the Moon and we do best helping each other out, collaborating and enjoying time with people we know. Create some fun.  Jupiter in Leo is about growth and Libra Moon is about fairness and partnership. Put that all together and ease a tense situation if necessary. Aim for growth. It's Mercury's last day (hours) in Sagittarius. Pick up a good book or learn something valuable. Mercury moves to Capricorn at 10:53 pm ET for very practical, grounded thinking and problem solving in the weeks ahead. Void Moon overnight is not good for any judgment calls or decisions. Today's color is green.


Wednesday: Mercury in Capricorn, Scorpio Moon


Scorpio Moon comes at 9:52 am ET after a void of course Moon from 12:40 am until then. The Moon works well with Mercury and Neptune and inspires creativity as well as better communication and action on a plan. The day is more introverted as we deal with and manage personal priorities. Today's color is indigo blue.


Thursday: Scorpio Moon


The Moon aligns with Venus and Pluto in Capricorn and squares Mars in Aquarius.  The question is how much to rebel, challenge or create waves. Remain practical and organized with your thinking. Cancer, relationship is top priority. Virgo, communicate well and clearly. A long talk with a friend or someone you love may be needed now. If you're challenging authority or the norm, easy does it. Today's color is maroon.


Friday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon


Heavy business is the work of Saturn and the Moon in Scorpio. If you can settle something today, so be it. Saturn is only in Scorpio until December 23rd (and back for a retrograde visit next summer). It's been a long road with certain big issues and today can be about finalizing the answers or finishing the building, sale, or acquisition. Medical decisions may also come now. The Moon is briefly void of course 4:11 to 4:55 pm ET and ready for an abrupt shift to freedom loving Sagittarius. We go from attending to burdens and responsibility to an avoidance of both. Transition gently for a weekend where your spirit feels lighter,  hopefully. Allow in some adventure, fun and learning through experience. Make some room for more joy. Try not to let others down in your own exuberance or need to escape. Find decent middle ground this weekend. It's meant for road trips and such things.  Red is today's color. 


Saturday: Sagittarius Moon


The universe is busy with a variety of aspects and action from many planets. It may be hard to know what to focus on. Put energy toward things that are malleable where you will see results or know you're getting there. Sagittarius Moon usually inspires travels, new experiences, immersion in culture and experiential learning. However Mars and Uranus align and it's very  unpredictable and potentially aggressive energy so today you may be best off in your comfort zone with trusted people who have your back. Take no risks or gambles today and tonight. Venus influences ongoing relationship issues and some will get a wake up call as Venus squares Uranus and meets Pluto. Face up to the realities of your significant other, even if it's not a pretty picture. If it's unhealthy, these aspects make things obvious. Consider how to heal or let go if this applies to you. You'll can be stronger and reinvent yourself. Those not in the midst of this can support friends who are. Balance enthusiasm and festivity with caring and sensitivity. We are all on different paths and experiencing the holidays in our own ways. Today's color is purple. 


Sunday: Winter Solstice & New Moon


I'm at Scarborough Yoga for a New Moon Solstice Yoga & Yoga Nidra Event. Great for anyone with yoga experience or not. Manifest and energize your dearest intentions with Yoga Nidra.

Register at this link: Solstice Yoga & Yoga Nidra


It's a special New Moon in Capricorn, arriving on the Solstice as the Sun changes to that same sign. Capricorn, you are set up to thrive, prosper and make stable changes now. Build on the foundation you've set this year. Jupiter aligns just before the Moon changes signs, putting extra blessings on this day and making it a good day to gather, create, and truly feel the spirit of the holiday season.  Cancer and Virgo, this favors relationships. Sagittarius, Aries, and Gemini, the New Moon in one way or another blesses your financial matters and other career and business moves. Scorpio, communication improvements, news about educational, marketing and travels to family are expected. Libra, positive upgrades and improved relationships with family for you. Today's color is white.

                                         Weekly December 8th to 15th, 2014

 

Monday: Sun conjunct Mercury, Cancer Moon


A mix of energies and elements leads one way or the other. Cancer Moon squares Uranus in Aries and opposes Pluto every month and it's proven to be challenging. Those who throw you off balance and unpredictable situations can flare up. This may be a repetitive cycle you're used to though no one probably welcomes revisiting it. Family matters are often part of this with Cancer Moon, though a Gemini or Sagittarius can find business or legal matters more challenging. The bright side is Mercury and the Sun meet in Sagittarius. Announcements and declarations, statements with motivation behind them, come now. Scorpio and Pisces have news to receive or share regarding work and career this week. Leo finds this very lucky and can hope for the best news possible. Friendship and fun are forecast for Leo and Aquarius among others. Try to find that bright side even if annoying grievances plague you yet again. Today's color is yellow.


Tuesday: Cancer to Leo Moon


Cancer Moon trine Saturn in Scorpio means home, family and health in the forefront. Put some effort and attention on taking care of things, with sensitivity and a smile. Take an idea and form a step by step plan to carry it out. It's a day for conservative business and judicious spending only. A void of course Moon takes over from 7:14 pm to 10:14 pm ET-adjust for your time zone.  This does not favor best judgement in decision making and spending. However, if you get so caught up in overthinking that you have trouble with decisions, this may free you to take some sort of action. Keep things simple and adjustable. At 10:14 the Moon moves to Leo for late night lions who may enjoy a great time with friends.  Today's color is purple. 


Wednesday: Venus in Capricorn


Venus moves to Capricorn and Mercury will join that party next Tuesday. Capricorn energy is traditional and structured and any lack of those elements will become obvious now. The urge to nest, repair things, settle in, and manage things better with business and with the significant other and at home are all Capricorn effects this season. Cancer longs to cohabitate and might make a relationship commitment now. Venus in your sign, Capricorn, makes you one of the zodiac's darlings. You're favored to attract friends, opportunities, and to treat yourself well. (ps Capricorn, December has much more in store to support and perk up your spirits!) Virgo, Venus in Capricorn brightens your love and social life. Aries, this is the time to seek a promotion, upgrade or send out resumes.  Leo Moon is all stirred up today with Mars across the zodiac increasing the chance we'll strongly disagree or make a huge effort to see a different point of view. This relates very much to collaborating and how much effort it takes. Uranus adds inventiveness and reason to change things up, maybe at the last possible moment.  Today's color is pink.


Thursday: Leo Moon conjunct Jupiter


This is a peak day for things suddenly falling together. Leo Moon relates to children, teachers, performers and those who deal with the public, like politicians and media professionals.  The Moon aligns with the Sagittarius Sun for travel and educational prospects. Mercury also speaks for two days, urging clear messages, good news, and sparking the imagination of writers and the wanderlust of travelers.  Jupiter meets the Moon in a glorious burst of Leo optimism, enthusiasm and growth. Further your plans and surround yourself with the best allies, friends, and support team today! Enjoy some luck and see what's working for you. Today's color is gold. 


Friday: Mercury trine Jupiter, Leo to Virgo Moon


Mercury continues his efforts to get things moving, expanding, and clarified with alignment to Jupiter in Leo. Jupiter is Sagittarius's planet and Mercury is in that sign, favoring higher learning (so do send applications now), travel (do plan that winter trip before Mercury is retrograde in January/February), and the tools that keep us in touch and connected. Computer, cell phone and other technical upgrades are timed well. The Moon has a variety of aspects and emotions may be up and down today, depending on your agenda. Serious decisions and business come up with Saturn first thing. Take care of something confidently and before it becomes a problem. The Moon is void from 7:48 to 10:19 am ET and then on to Virgo for practical problem solving.  Moon and Venus put us in the mood to dress up and clean up. Neptune in Pisces adds a romantic and hazy effect to the evening's plans. Timeliness might be an issue tonight. Try not to disappoint with a no show. Friends are relying on you, Virgo, Pisces and Scorpio. Come out of your shells.  Today's color is blue.


Saturday: Virgo Moon


Virgo Moon aligns with Pluto. Being productive, organizing and feeling accomplishments are Saturday's theme this week. Studying is also favored. Find a balance of tasks and some enjoyment of home, food, creating and simple pleasures. Short forecast for a day of the basics. Feel good about something you pulled off this week. Today's color is brown.


Sunday: Virgo to Libra Moon, Sun trine Jupiter


Follow up to Jupiter's activity a few days ago. The Sun and Jupiter help put it all together for special announcements, happy occasions, beneficial opportunities and joining forces.  This is a time for expansion, clearing the way, and making the decision that opens the door to a new journey.  Venus and Neptune are in harmony too, increasing the feeling of romance, possibility and love.  Today is good timing for so many things, whether you initiate or just allow it all to unfold.  News will create discussion since the thing that makes one person happy can create discontent for another. All in all, today has much potential for joy! Go with it. Libra Moon moves in at 11:05 pm ET after just two hours void of course. Shopping is ok except for those hours. Today's color is violet.

                                         Weekly December 1st to 7th, 2014


Monday: Aries Moon


Astrological motivation is strong with bold Aries Moon and Mars in harmony with Saturn in Capricorn and Scorpio. This is a peak day for getting things moving, finalizing details, and also instigating new activity related to ongoing situations.  With these aspects, action and thought are powerful and meant to last.  Every month the Moon and Uranus meet, and today is that day. Uranus can add an aha moment or startling development and changes the picture or perspective.  Mercury is in line with the Moon instigating honest talk. Today's color is red.


Tuesday: Aries Moon


Venus and Jupiter align with Aries Moon from the other fire signs. An active, busy day full of opportunity and collaborations is likely. Being open to different ideas helps things move along. Initiate action around a potentially great idea. The Moon squares Mars in the evening and short fuses trigger easily, so temper your words and interactions. At 9:42 pm the Moon moves void of course. Finish shopping and other decisions that matter before then. Today's color is pink.


Wednesday: Taurus Moon


At 12:15 am ET, the Moon shifts to earth sign Taurus. Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn align with the Moon. A great blend of softness and courage, logic and creativity, infuse the day. Express yourself with art or other projects. Create and build from scratch.  See things for what they are. Own your actions and responsibilities.  Today's color is gray.


Thursday: Venus trine Jupiter, Mars to Aquarius


This is a high energy day. The Moon is in Taurus, persevering and constructive. Venus in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo align, inspiring and activating travels, new experiences, and energizing loves lives, for some of you.  Freedom is a Sagittarius value, and Jupiter is Sagittarius' ruling planet. Leo is creative, loyal and fixed. Adventurous relationships, with common vision and thirst for travel and movement, do well with this aspect.  Plan a trip together! Aquarius and Aries are two signs that may benefit and thrive now! Sun and Uranus align too, increasing fire, inspiration and ingenuity. Invent and experiment. Today's color is purple. 


Friday: Mercury trine Uranus, Gemini Moon

The Moon will be full on Saturday at 7:27 am. Today is event filled with busy minds, possibly overthinking, and with much need to respond and initiate communications. News comes with Mercury trine Uranus. Ideas and solutions suddenly become apparent and clear. Try to think rather than act suddenly. Those ideas will not evaporate if you put a bit more thought and care into them. The void of course Moon from 1:45 to 5:28 am ET concludes with the Moon opposite Saturn, and finalizing decisions is the result. Mars in Aquarius adds a collaborative and inventive aspect. It's a day of talk from discussions to meetings and tall tales too. Watch out for stories that seem exaggerated or too good to be true as Neptune squares the Moon. This increases imagination for writing and weaving a fine story.  Don't be conned though. Today's color is gold.


Saturday: Full Moon in Gemini


The Full Moon peaks at 7:27 am ET with a trine to Uranus, planet of surprises and rebellion. Mercury is opposite the Moon. Decisions and clarity come with Full Moons, and in some cases this one will instigate dissolving things to recreate them differently. News like that can shake you if you've worked hard on something to find it now needs to be adapted or scrapped for a new plan.  Negotiating may be quite challenging as the Full Moon and Mercury in Sagittarius oppose. Sagittarius and Gemini, some of you will have trouble agreeing with your significant other, most likely on something important. Jupiter is in harmony with the Moon for parties and social events. Enjoy being with people, attending festivities or community events.  Honesty is a pivotal issue at this Gemini Moon time. Gemini is a sign of duality and duplicity at times. Sagittarius is direct, sometimes to a fault or without regard for feelings.  Communication is likely to be very challenging at times when it truly matters. Try to be clear, sensitive, honest and as  you make decisions, see both sides or the pros and the cons.  If you're up for a wild party this weekend, you'll get exactly that. Some will want to lay low until this Full Moon is over. Cancer and Pisces may be home bodies this weekend, though Pisces could host a nice gathering at home. Today's color is white.


Sunday: Cancer Moon


Void of course Moon is from 4:52 am to 12:34 pm ET. Be very mindful and conscious of what's going on then. Mistakes, errors in judgement or breaches of trust may be present. Avoid all of that with careful thought and a clear mind.  It's not a good shopping time. The Moon opposes Venus and relationships experiencing troubles polarize even more. Talking may help or hinder depending on personalities involved. A tendency to lie is present, so ask questions and trust your intuition. If you see a side of someone you didn't expect, the Gemini Full Moon may be bringing that out. Take in information and be aware. The Moon moves to Cancer at 12:34 pm. Take care of yourself and give someone else some extra love and attention too. We need to nurture after overly busy days and nights.  Cook a nice meal. Create a comforting, warm environment and chill out some. The Moon and Neptune favor creative projects and inspiration through music, art or film. Today's color is light blue.

                               Weekly November 24th to November 30th, 2014

Monday: Capricorn Moon


With a New Moon behind you, supporting all new adventures, make this week count! Creative ways of doing business and manifesting money, resources and goods are in favor today. Capricorn Moon is the most resourceful of all Moon signs, moving in at 11:31 am ET (before that the Moon is void of course). Neptune speaks with the Moon from versatile Pisces. Adjust your thinking, be more open to suggestions, and believe you can achieve. Attitude is most important. Capricorn can be very traditional, however it's a good day to color outside the lines, as imaginative Neptune exerts an influence.  Today's color is blue.


Tuesday: Capricorn Moon, Mercury conjunct Saturn


Mercury and Saturn have one final collaboration before Mercury scoots to Sagittarius on Thursday.  It's a decisive, strong willed, vocal influence impacting a few days and continuing a strong Sun/Saturn conjunction last week. Seek the best and most wise advice. Look for the voice of experience, possibly from an older person as Saturn rules the elders.  Make decisions about health, business, family and legal matters. Put your energy toward finalizing things. With Capricorn Moon it's often about business and employment including dealings with the boss, and that's likely for Libra and Aries. Gemini and Sagittarius, prioritize health and balance work with more rest.  Cancer, relationship and partnership decisions and important conversations or news are in the forecast this week. Today's color is yellow, Mercury's color. 


Wednesday: Capricorn to Aquarius Moon, Mercury trine Neptune


A day of mixed energies, the Moon is in Capricorn, void of course from 10:30 am to 2:23 pm ET. Can you get something settled before that time? Morning is set up to be productive! Mars and the Moon instigate all kinds of activity. The key is to avoid a pointless argument about method or plans.  Void of course Moon is time to pay close attention since our focus wanes. Keep track of your stuff and your calendar. Remember where you park the car or that you turned the oven on! From 2:23 pm on, it's a social and community oriented Aquarius Moon with Neptune and Mercury aligned for music, art, and romantic times. The Sun and Neptune encourage escape from the usual routine, for more creativity, enjoyment, and willingness to adapt and change.  Today's color is turquoise.


Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving USA! Aquarius Moon


Gathering is what Aquarius Moon is all about! Get together with friends, family and also with common purpose and vision. The Moon works with Venus and Uranus, providing inventive ideas and a hunger for change and adventures.  Spontaneous plans can turn out great on a day like this! Dinner may lead to interesting conversations, games, and bigger parties as families and friends converge.  Uranus always has that unexpected element, so surprises may throw some of us off. The key is not to overreact or react too quickly.  All in all, this looks like a Thanksgiving of community, collaborative efforts and travels. Today's color is purple. 


Friday: Aquarius to Pisces Moon


This appears to be the most challenging day of the week. Take it slow and don't allow yourself to be imposed on or pressured. The Moon is void of course from 12:14 to 5:03 pm ET, and opposes Jupiter first.  One issue that creates is too much spending and another is overindulgence.  Try to moderate. Saturn squares the Moon, and advises us to take care of responsibilities, especially writing and studies. Look over things and revise later if you work during void of course Moon. Also, today is ideal for just enjoying friendship and not doing any business at all, especially during void of course Moon. Pisces Moon moves in and squares Mercury. Be judicious with words to avoid sensitive reactions or misunderstandings. Mercury, now in Sagittarius, is not always the most tactful. Brutal honesty may be unnecessary.  There's a judgmental tone in the background today, and you may have to tune that out. It could come from family, management, or from within. Today's color is green.


Saturday: Pisces Moon


Pisces Moon interacts with the Sun and Venus in Sagittarius. Revisit places you have a soft spot for, but don't expect that nothing's changed.  It's a sentimental weekend. Misunderstandings between fiery and watery personalities might be triggered. Is the other person too insensitive or are feelings just on edge? More than likely it's just experiencing life from two different perspectives, however relationships may be a bit tricky today as Venus and the Sun in freedom loving Sagittarius contrast the emotional and vulnerable Pisces Moon. Movies and music provide wonderful escape time whether you're playing a part or in the audience. Today's color is light blue.


Sunday: Pisces to Aries Moon, Mercury square Neptune


Pisces Moon aligns with Mars and Saturn for getting things done, especially personal priorities.  Avoid the tendency to be lazy or ignore the mess or the problem facing you.  Mars gives the energy and organization and Saturn lends a sense of responsibility. Mercury squares Neptune and the truth is in question. Facts may be elusive, but you could dream up a great story or lyric today. Place your trust only where it's been earned. Void of course Moon from 3:47 to 8:14 pm ET. Today's color is orange. 

 

                                        Weekly November 17th to 23rd

 


Monday: Virgo/Libra Moon

The Moon is void of course from 6:11 am to 2:30 pm ET and shifts to Libra then. The void Moon time can be confusing or chaotic. It helps to be flexible. The Moon, Sun & Saturn urge us to be of service to others including neighbors, family and especially the elderly.  To get anything done you'll need to be extra organized early in the day since the tendency is toward flightiness and lack of concentration. Lists may make the business day most manageable. Libra Moon in harmony with Venus in Sagittarius brings excitement to love lives, and Sagittarius, Aries and Gemini may really enjoy this. Keeping expectations simple and allowing for change and variety with our significant others is one way to go with this flow. It's not about demands and rigid-ness. Welcome more excitement and passion into your relationship rather than expecting your lover to always remain the same. Today's color is lavender.


Tuesday: Libra Moon, Sun conjunct Saturn

The Sun and Saturn strongly encourage long lasting agreements, contracts and solutions today. Arranging to take care of a medical matter, reaching a legally binding agreement, or dealing with wills, elder care or other permanent and important matters of life (or death) are all favored.  Scorpio, personal and significant news and decisions are forecast for you. Leo, this relates to home and family, Libra for employment and money, and Aries all of the above for you.  The Libra Moon squares Pluto and is opposite Uranus. Sometimes this instigates conflict or is unpleasant, however if you keep your focus and refuse to allow yourself to be distracted or shaken by drama and sudden shifts in plans, you may be a-ok. Adopt an attitude of calm early in the day and maintain it with others, on the surface. Today's color is indigo blue.


Wednesday: Moon square Mars

The Libra Moon squares Mars in Capricorn and is in harmony with Jupiter. Void of course Moon is nearly all day, starting at 9:25 am and lasting until 12:31 am ET Thursday. It's a very social day, good for collaborating with a partner, networking for business, or meeting up for lunch or coffee to chat and establish a working or personal relationship. There's an urge to make progress, take action, find more balance and justice in responsibilities and workload.  Review and revise where systems are not efficient or fair.  Create a new flow. Try something out. Know that we lose track of time or where to be on days like this and check your commitments. Capricorn Mars favors accomplishments and building, industriousness and tangible results leading up to the Full Moon of December 6th. Today's color is red.


Thursday: Scorpio Moon

The New Moon is Saturday and until then it's time to revise, review and reconsider. Scorpio Moon throws back to the October 23rd eclipse and there are vibes of news and developments from events at that time. Decisions on whatever has been pending for the past month are due now or very soon. This is a day to organize and decide even if you save action and announcements for New Moon time or beyond. The Sagittarius New Moon favors movement, travel and higher learning (so get those college applications done and sent!) By the way, those of you preparing for college or another program this winter or next fall, Mercury will retrograde January 21st to February 11th and that is not a favorable time for smooth communications and reliability. Send early applications before mid January and beat the confusion. Venus and Neptune squares today in Sagittarius/Pisces and romantic relationships have a mixed vibe and mixed messages. Venus in Sagittarius likes freedom, so that is the trend, but don't jump to conclusions and take that the wrong way. Leo, Gemini, and Aquarius, re-read that since it can apply to you also, in love or in friendship. Today's color is maroon.


Friday: Scorpio Moon

The New Moon is tomorrow, but you may not be able to wait! Mercury, Mars and the Moon fill today with consultations, discussions and decisions. Expect long term effects of what happens today with Moon and Mercury in Scorpio and Mars in harmony from ambitious Capricorn.  If you're not quite ready to take confident action, it's a great day to organize, prepare or complete a thought process or project of any kind. Mercury aligns with Mars, putting actions behind the words. Follow your own advice. The Moon is void of course after midnight ET. Don't slip up and do something you promised yourself you wouldn't do again. Today's color is black (and that's not a bad thing!). 


Saturday: Sagittarius New Moon, Sun in Sagittarius

Sagittarius birthdays begin this year at 4:38 am ET! Void of course Moon is 12:53 to 7:19 am, and during that time the Sun changes signs.  All this Sagittarius energy can be very refreshing! Let the winds of change do their thing! See where the road takes you today and in the next two weeks as Sag Moon urges movement! In the body, Sagittarius rules the hips. Kick up your heels and get the body in action! Feed wanderlust even if it's just a trip out of town for a day between now and December 6th or 7th. Refresh your living space, Virgo especially, and your work space if you're a Cancer. This New Moon favors employment and financial transactions including purchases for Scorpio.  Pisces, it's a career New Moon for you and you may be chosen for an important role. Libra, communication is the keyword and you'll be studying, writing, marketing or negotiating deals enthusiastically with plenty to gain and feel good about. Travel may also be involved for Libra and Aries. Movement and change are in the air! The Moon and Venus meet for a fun, romantic night. It's not the cozy at home kind though! Time to get out and experience something new. Today's color is white.


Sunday: Sagittarius Moon

The Moon aligns with Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries. It's an action oriented day whether that activity is play or work. Jupiter is expansive and influences the wanderlust, urge for growth and also the luck of Sagittarius New Moon! Sagittarius and Leo host this action and are reputed to be the lucky signs. It's a positive influence for all! Aquarius, this is beautiful for love and friendship as well as business partnerships. Capricorn, this is work oriented but it's exactly what you enjoy! Uranus in Aries feeds the quickness and fiery impulses of the New Moon. Try to keep that in check since it can lead to actions you wish you hadn't taken.  Also, be extra careful on the road this weekend.  The void of course Moon, when the Moon lingers between signs, is 10:16 pm ET until 11:31 am tomorrow. Stick with routine and simple activity then. Today's color is purple.

 

I like the looks of this week for taking action on whatever is pending and needing attention! Venus spends her last days in passionate, possessive Scorpio. Read on! Robin

 

                                  Weekly November 10th to 16th, 2014


Monday: Cancer Moon


The Cancer Moon moves in at 3:38 am and is in harmony with Neptune in Pisces and Mercury in Scorpio. Mars and Pluto connect in Capricorn. This reminds me of a reading I did last week where my client requested an "action card". I like that term, referring to a type of action to take, if any. Today, you might want to draw an action card! Mars pushes for progress and lights a fire under Pluto, bringing things up from the depths or the back burner.  Cancer Moon and Mercury in Scorpio indicate action involving contracts, promises, legal and medical matters, family matters and organization. Intuitive decisions are likely, as is acting from the heart. Doing what just feels right is today's theme. There's a caring, compassionate aspect at play, but also a powerful Capricorn conjunction that really aims for making progress even if it's a little tough to push through, muster up the courage or motivation, and confront what you know needs to be done.  Today's color is blue.


Tuesday: Cancer Moon, Mercury trine Neptune


Mercury and Neptune, in water signs Scorpio and Pisces, inspire creativity with words, color, projects, and also solutions! Do some creative problem solving as Cancer Moon opposes Mars and Pluto, the duo that met in Capricorn on Monday. The timing is good for resolving things, confronting fears and feelings, and progressing as a result of either or both! If you're processing something and need to make a move, see if there's an interesting alternative you had not considered.  In conversation, or with advice, stick with what's real versus idealistic. Neptune could pull us a bit into dreamland which is great for the artist and creator, but not as beneficial if you're looking for a personal or business resolution.  There could be a tendency to just escape an issue entirely. If you choose that, it's going to crop up again, and the Sun and Cancer Moon harmonize for confidence and decision making done now.  Uranus adds that element of surprise, and something may take you off guard today. Control your reactions and think before you act too quickly or rashly. Today's color is indigo.


Wednesday: Leo Moon, Venus conjunct Saturn


The Moon is void in Cancer from 3:18 am to 1:44 pm ET. Keep your day simple during those hours if possible.  The trend will be to take care of personal business and things then. We may need some space and privacy early on. Venus and Saturn meet in Scorpio, putting a major focus on relationships, loyalty, fidelity, and commitment. Anything less will be intolerable.  Deep relationship conversations or issues and, in some cases, hard decisions come along with that conjunction. Taurus and Scorpio will contemplate this, as well as Cancer or Capricorns who are single and dating. (In fact, one of those signs may be your rising or Moon sign and this may be right on for you no matter what your sign!). At 1:44 pm the Moon moves to Leo, sign of the heart and spine and another sign that expects loyalty, continuing this theme of passion and commitment. Mars and Uranus, meanwhile, are mixing it up in Capricorn and Aries. Power plays and being taken off guard can be the result. Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo be aware of this in business. Travel plans may have to change, and Scorpio and Taurus are likely to be affected if that's the case. Today's color is purple.


Thursday: Sun squares Jupiter


The Scorpio Sun squares expansive Jupiter in Leo on this Leo Moon day. Tomorrow morning the Moon and Jupiter will meet. Squares are a challenge, and they are a change agent! The combination of Sun in insightful Scorpio and Jupiter in the Sun's ruling sign, Leo feels very balanced for major announcements and powerful action, all with long term impact and implications.  The Leo influence is hugely expressive, passionate and creative.  The Moon also squares Mercury in Scorpio, pushing for agreements and decisions. Tomorrow will be equally influenced by these aspects, so what you don't do or experience today could come to fruition tomorrow. Today's color is gold.


Friday: Moon conjunct Jupiter


Yesterday's forecast is relevant as the Moon and Jupiter meet in Leo, sealing deals, resulting in announcements, grand openings, new alliances, and doing things with brilliance and sparkle! Kids may be all amped up. It's a highly energetic part of the week. The Moon squares Sun, Venus and Saturn in turn, all in Scorpio and all of this week's business is once again activated, up for final resolution, and in some cases celebration of progress made and goals achieved.  The catch today is a very stubborn streak which is great for holding fast to plans and persevering, but difficult if someone needs to yield or is tough to convince. Power struggles could be very tough. However there is so much positivity! Perhaps that will help you win someone's support or encourage positive attitudes about change. The Moon is void at 9:53 pm to 2:08 am ET. Today's color is red.


Saturday: Virgo Moon


The Virgo Moon is on from 2:08 am today until Monday at 2:30 pm ET. Today, Neptune in Pisces is opposite the Moon. Flexibility is key. Versatile thinking will help solve problems. Get out of a usual routine and experiment. Trying something a different way encourages new pathways in the brain and may yield a new perspective or result! Obviously, experiment where no great risk is involved. Neptune in Pisces is an artist and dreamer. Daydream a new vision for yourself. You might even turn that dream into a piece of art or a new look for your living space today. Movies, music and other happy distractions are favored today.  It might be hard to concentrate as Neptune pulls us away from reality and the details of things.  Today's color is navy blue.


Sunday: Virgo Moon, Mercury sextile Pluto


Mercury and Pluto have been active the last several days. It may be worth looking back at forecasts for early and mid week to see what's playing out still as Sunday comes.  Mercury in Scorpio encourages finding information, solving puzzles, studying and researching. Pluto, Scorpio's ruler, is in Capricorn. Scorpio themes dominate this Virgo Moon day. Virgo and Scorpio together favor attention to detail (sometimes to the point of obsessing). If you're a perfectionist, those tendencies comes out on days like this. Try to be a bit more flexible and/or allow for a margin of error. It's a good day to revise and refine if you are less of a perfectionist. Cleaning and organizing is also a good way to direct energy today. Also, Venus moves to Sagittarius at  2:03 pm ET for more freedom and excitement in love and relationships. Neptune direct as the day begins is a helpful trend for Pisces, especially. Pink, for Venus, is today's color. 

                                                   

                                     Weekly November 3rd to 9th, 2014

 

Monday: Sun sextile Pluto

The Moon starts in Pisces, is void of course from 4:05 to 1:53 pm EDT and then in Aries. The Moon harmonizes with Saturn at 4:05 setting the tone for at least the first half of the day.  Saturn points out all that needs attention now. If boundaries and limits need to be set, it might be easier to communicate that during the early part of the day, but be sure to follow up or the conversation may breeze by. Void of course Moon time can make things flow more easily and that can go either way.  Make sure you're well understood. At 1:53 pm EDT the moon moves to Aries and will square Mars overnight so power struggles may surface. The Sun and Pluto align in Scorpio/Capricorn. Pluto is Scorpio's planet and  rules fears, mysteries, the hidden, and relates to the past. Actively work to purge what's hidden, stored and buried including secrets that are now gnawing and no longer serve your purpose.  Get to the core of something important. Today's color is red.


Tuesday: Aries Moon

The Moon squares both Mars and Pluto in Capricorn and meets Uranus today. The conditions are ripe for struggles about who's in charge and how things should be done.  Mars in Capricorn favors being organized and productive. Aries is all about initiating the new. Full Moon is Thursday and requires decisions and final products. The push is on today, but we may feel ill effects of authoritative people.  However, maybe they light a fire we need. Uranus has it's own fire about to start, and an unanticipated event can be motivating or throw us completely off balance.  Try to be productive and stay sane with your responses. Today's color is black.


Wednesday: Void of course Moon

The Moon is void of course from 8:25 am to 4:33 pm EDT. The Moon opposes Mercury, now direct, at 8:25 am setting the stage for debates and extremes in perspective.  Going back over an unsettled problem or dispute is likely. The long void Moon is not the best time to promise, but may ease tension and make conversation a bit easier to broach.  Taurus Moon moves in at 4:33 pm expecting loyalty and long term agreements, and almost Full. Full Moon is at 5:23 pm Thursday.  Understand what you're agreeing to since it's al most certain to be hard to reverse any time soon. Today's color is yellow. 


Thursday: Full Moon in Taurus

The Taurus Moon is full at 5:23 pm, with some after vibes from last month's lunar eclipse and also from the solar eclipse two weeks back. Though this is a very solid, earthy Full Moon in harmony with Neptune, Mars and Pluto, continued developments from the eclipses may rock some of us a bit. Mercury was retrograde then, but no longer. This is a time for resolving, solving, finishing, and bringing things full circle. Consider things to be quite permanent if decided or acted on now. The Moon opposes Venus stirring up relationship questions and discussions, for Taurus and Scorpio especially. Today's color is gold.


Friday: Taurus to Gemini Moon

The Moon opposes Saturn and squares Jupiter. What's reasonable and manageable comes into focus.  The Moon is void of course from 11:17 am on. Get something figured out before then, ideally. Still in the Full Moon zone, expect news and word of long term changes. At 8:45 pm EDT the Moon moves to Gemini. This is a social night, but watch out for people who are not what they seem to be or project.  Hold things close and act on the conservative side generally. Today's color is yellow.

Saturday: Mercury in Scorpio


Mercury transitions back to Scorpio at 6:09 pm ET, retracing the threshold crossed back during the retrograde (October 10th to be exact). Business unfinished at that time may come up again or resolve in the next few days.  Gemini Moon squares Neptune and that can mean creative differences, often worth putting effort into for a sum greater than the original parts.  Allowing flexibility will create more ease. Uranus aligns with the Moon from Aries for bold statements and quick or sudden movements. Take time to think and consider slowing down if things are whirling too fast.  Today's color is light blue.

Sunday: Gemini Moon

The Moon aligns with joyous Jupiter in Leo for a great social Sunday! Get tasks done before afternoon if need be. At 11:22 am the Gemini Moon moves void of course and all we'll want to do is have some fun! Gather with friends or family. News & adjustments from the Full Moon will be bouncing around too. Today's color is white.

 
 

                                     Weekly October 27th to November 2nd, 2014

Monday: Venus trine Neptune, Sagittarius Moon


The Moon aligns with Uranus in Aries, Mercury in Libra, and Jupiter in Leo. Assertive, brave, confident energy dominates the day. We'll tend to ask for what we want. Some announcements and declarations will come form out of the blue! Knowing the spontaneous nature of the day, consider balancing it out with some thought and care before you act and speak, both to protect your own best interests and other people's feelings. The Sagittarius Moon sometimes leads us to forget about sensitivities in our forward motion. And progress it is! The Moon is void of course at 12:18 pm ET though, so slow down a bit this afternoon when a whirlpool of activity could be fun but cause forgetfulness or careless mistakes.  Venus and Neptune are the best partners today, encouraging romance and passion in Scorpio and Pisces. Cancer, Taurus, and Virgo also get the best of this especially in love and friendship too. Today's color is turquoise.


Tuesday: Sun trine Neptune, Moon conjunct Mars in Capricorn


The Moon moves to Capricorn at 6:03 am and the Sun is in perfect harmony with Neptune at just about that time.  There's plenty of agreement between Sun, Moon and planets touring Capricorn, Scorpio and Pisces. Things fall together or apart easily on days like this. The Moon and Mars in Capricorn are the glue holding us to structure and productivity, otherwise we could flow in aimless directions. Use Capricorn traits like perseverance and organization and be constructive with those water signs influences like artistic sense and vulnerability. Build with and around what you have. Be a magician today and manifest! Appeal to feelings and personal connections to get things done too. Today's color is navy blue.


Wednesday: Capricorn Moon


The Moon meets Pluto, challenges Mercury and Uranus on opposite sides of the zodiac, and plays well with Saturn in Scorpio. This looks like a progressive day, a day to break down one system to put a better one in place or a time to resolve a long standing issue with a truly effective action plan. Effort and a positive attitude are required. Try to let go of the pessimist or doubting voice that holds you down. Find confidence to confront something important, within yourself or with another party. Do it in a detached Capricorn Moon-like way, looking for solutions and answers not dramatics. The Moon is void of course from 11:01 pm to 9:52 am tomorrow. Wear black today. 


Thursday: Aquarius Moon


Another day meant for progress as the Moon moves to Aquarius at 9:52 am ET. This is often a time to collaborate and get like minded people together to make a difference or re-invent. The Moon and Sun square so it's not all about agreeing. See how someone else's idea complements your own. Put the best pieces together and make things happen. Get impartial advice and perspective on anything. Make technological and system upgrades, from your phone to a much bigger network.  It's also a good day to read books, find information, research and dream up new designs. Today's color is light blue.


Friday: Aquarius Moon, Happy Samhain!


The Moon is between New and Full. It's a potent time after the Scorpio solar eclipse on the 23rd of October. Movement and change are in the air, and the Aquarius Moon is one for envisioning and drawing up plans as well as inventing and building the prototype. Be assertive and persistent with goals now. Find your support team while the Moon is in harmony with Mercury in Libra, sign of partners. Venus squares the Moon so there needs to be give and take. All one way will put us on opposing sides today. Also, scale down or be more expansive if you're leaning one way too hard. Collaborate. Halloween night is for groups, parties, and big gatherings this year! Make it full weekend of fun! Today's color is silver.

Weekly October 20th to 26th, 2014

This week features multiple turning points! Thursday, the Sun moves to Scorpio and a solar eclipse rocks the same sign! Venus moves to Scorpio bestowing all her beautiful traits at eclipse time! Saturday, Mercury stations direct in Libra.

Monday: Venus sextile Mars, Mercury sextile Jupiter 

If improving your love life is a priority, today is your day! Venus in Libra and Mars in Sagittarius activate long distance romances, travels with your lover, and excitement about romances blooming or refreshing with new energy. Venus and Mars are the chemistry planets when it comes to love. Ease relationship tension with pure fun, a spontaneous approach, and maybe a tiny adjustment in attitude or perspective. Mercury and Jupiter align for inspired brainstorming possibilities, activity around education and travels, and openness to meeting new people or former colleagues to see what might be brewing that you could be involved with in the months ahead.  The Virgo Moon aligns with Saturn and there are strong pulls to organize and be persistent with business that needs to be done.  Overall, this is a good day for most anything you have planned.  Tonight the Moon squares Mars at 11:30 pm and is then void of course until 7:12 am. Be where you're expected to be. Today's color is navy blue. 


Tuesday: Libra Moon

The Libra Moon sails freely from 7:12 am on. Tomorrow the Moon will meet Mercury retrograde one final time during this cycle, and old business is in the spotlight this week. Libra Moon is time to weigh pros and cons, engage in intelligent decision making or at least thinking about options. Decisions may be better made early next week. New Moon is Thursday. Today and tomorrow, reconsider and bring in some new ideas too.  The New Moon may get a delayed start in terms of bringing things together and starting fresh. Now is the time to set a flexible course of action, a simple adjustable plan. Listen well and observe today. File away your insights for the time when they are most valuable. Avoid gossip and speculation. Today's color is lavender. 


Wednesday: Mercury retrograde conjunct Libra Moon

Mercury stations direct on Saturday. Meanwhile, there's a solar eclipse New Moon tomorrow and Mercury touches base with the Moon, guardian of our emotions, childhood, and upbringing. This happens at 5:25 pm EDT to be exact. It's a happening day for rediscoveries, memories, and reversals. Some may go back on their word because they have to! Mercury retrograde results in introspection, connection with the past in a variety of ways, and therefore, changes our priorities or the way we see things. In Libra, this is likely to relate to what's fair, what's imbalanced, how to relate to another significant person and whether to move forward together or not. Legal justice is another Libra matter, so legal implications may be involved in some of this too. There are still a few days of Mercury retrograde, and the final day is notorious (Saturday), however you may feel like you're clarifying and seeing something important with new eyes by now. Some patience is probably a good thing. Hold on a little bit longer.  Today's color is white.


Thursday: Sun and Venus to Scorpio, Solar Eclipse in Scorpio

Hello Scorpio! This is the darkest part of the year, as the Sun shifts to Scorpio at 7:57 am (the actual end of Daylight Savings Time is November 2nd this year). Venus follows to Scorpio, where she is passionate and sometimes jealous, at 4:52 pm for about a 4 week stay. The Moon starts in Libra energized by Mars. Feeling fired up will be a common effect!  The void of course Moon is from 1:22 pm to 5:10 pm and the New Moon in Scorpio, a solar eclipse as well, is exact at 5:57 pm EDT. Venus is in perfect harmony with the Moon, and our love lives, and strong passions in other areas too, get a big jolt of solar energy! Feel it in your heart, you will not be able to deny where this eclipse leads. It's very positive having Venus's power at eclipse time. The planet of harmony, romance, beauty and art brings her goodness to many parts of life including romantic love for Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio and Cancer, earthly goods like work and money for Libra and Aries, career and positive recognition for Aquarius, and a loving home life and shift for Leo. Today's color is pink.


Friday:  Scorpio Moon

Still in the aura of the solar eclipse, word of change makes it way in. Digest it all slowly, no matter how sudden or urgent it seems. Mercury is retrograde through Saturday. Let things process. Simmer. Even with the good things, maybe hold back just a little and let excitement bubble a bit, just to be sure things are the way they appear.  Pluto and Neptune engage with the Moon in supportive ways. An inner feeling that something is really good, an intuition that something is brewing, or an inspiration you can build on are some of the effects.  Intuition should be strong today. Do not doubt yourself. Listen carefully and let the rest absorb. Today's color is indigo blue.


Saturday: Mercury stations Direct, Sun conjunct Venus

The Sun meets Venus and Mercury is direct at 3:17 pm! Romance is in the air! Cancer and Scorpio are feeling the love, and Aquarius may be feeling the love from all directions in terms of public recognition and positive career attention, for example. Wherever Scorpio falls in your chart is where you're getting the best vibes. That's also the sign we had a New Moon/solar eclipse in on Thursday. To maximize the positive impact of this well intentioned wave, ride it rather than fight it. Change is part of what's going on here and it relates to some of our deepest emotions and what's dearest to us. Let something take hold in a new way rather than expecting things remain the same. Scorpio is a fixed sign and changes are for the long haul now. It's a new phase, and Venus the planet of love has supported this all week. Ideally, even in the midst of struggle, you feel cleansed, somehow detoxified and ready to move forth. On this last day where Mercury has retrograde hours, avoid the big announcements or complex discussions. Saturn and Jupiter are also players today, with messages about expansion versus constriction, and what creates stability and abundance both. Let this day be quiet and contemplative, however don't resist a date or night out with friends while the Sun and Venus inspire love and connection. Wear maroon.


Sunday: Mars to Capricorn, Sagittarius Moon

Mars moves to industrious, physical Capricorn. The planet that influences our energy level, sex drive, and fire brings it all back to earth in Capricorn. From exploring possibilities during October, we moves into action and take real steps with a grounded approach. Mars in Capricorn wants to make it a reality. With Mercury direct, still in pause mode though, we can start to initiate for results. Building, creating organizations, and deciding who's responsible for what and holding accountability is favored with Mars in Capricorn. Launching or restructuring a business makes sense now. Capricorn, you need to prevent overwork which manifests as fatigue.  Virgo you're feeling the physical chemistry in your love life and/or the urge to do manual labor that makes you happy, like renovating or painting before the holidays. Take on a project now. Pisces, your friendships may be shifting and social life amping up. Know who your true friends are though and try to stay out of disagreements you don't need to be involved in. Sagittarius Moon squares Neptune today. We may just feel like wandering without a destination. Choose your adventure or creative pastime. Today's color is red.

Weekly October 13th to 19th, 2014

Listen here

 


Monday: Gemini to Cancer Moon 

Sun and Mercury in Libra align with Gemini Moon. Mars is across from the Moon, in Sagittarius. The past becomes relevant with Mercury retrograde. It's a peak day for revisiting places, people, and unresolved business. There's strong energy around collaboration, partnerships, legal matters and travel.  It's a day for choosing your team, at least for the moment, or you may be reconsidering who your supporting players are. Mercury retrograde is a time for trial periods or trial and error. Allow room to adjust any decisions you make. Give it a month or so, and then revisit and refine.  Friends or former colleagues get in touch and chance meetings with people you haven't seen in a long time happen on days like this.  The Moon is void of course from 1:58 to 7:30 pm. It's a homebody night with the Moon in Cancer. Today's color is silver.


Tuesday: Venus sextile Jupiter, Moon square Uranus


What a mixed day! Cancer Moon squares Uranus in Aries and opposes Pluto and this recurring pattern is not usually welcome since it stirs up feelings and resurrects fears and things that are hard to let go of. There's a sudden nature to Uranus's influence and Cancer Moon leans toward defensive reactions or melancholy blues. On the bright and beautiful side though, Venus in Libra harmonizes with Jupiter in Leo, and this is a song of love, joy, and opportunity! This angle is wildly social, friendly and enthusiastic. Love and partnerships are favored. Surround yourself with true friends or enjoy time with the love of your life. Along with Libra and Leo, Aries and Gemini really resonate with Jupiter and Venus this season. Today's color is light blue.


Wednesday: Sun sextile Mars


The Sun/Mars team in Libra and Sagittarius energizes this morning's wake up with ideas, collaborations and places to be! Travels refresh our perspective now. It's a good time to be on vacation as long as your schedule is flexible. In fact, today the less planned the more you're likely to enjoy it. The Moon is in Cancer, void of course at 7:27 pm EDT. The Sun and Moon square in Cancer and Libra, and we can sort out feelings and arrive at solutions if we put in the effort, caring and earn trust. It's delicate, but possible today with the 4th quarter Moon and Mercury retrograde bringing up topics that need attention and honest discussion. The Moon is void for the entire overnight until 6:29 am EDT. Avoid online shopping and late night messages that might be misread.  Today's color is red.


Thursday: Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde/sextile Mars


The Sun, Mercury, Mars action continues. It's mainly optimistic and initiates movement rather than the usual Mercury retro slow downs. As you make decisions just leave room to change your mind or alter the course later. Agree to temporary things rather than permanent-schedule changes or responsibilities, for example. Adventures & spontaneity, as well as reconnections with people you used to know, dominate today and tonight. A chance meeting might lead to a dinner date and a new start with old friend, for Libra, Gemini, Leo and Sagittarius in particular. Cancer may enjoy a visit back home or time with family. Capricorn, you may find yourself interested in what's happening where you used to work or feel led in a different career direction. The Moon is in Leo from 6:29 am on. Today's color is yellow.


Friday: Leo Moon conjunct Jupiter, Mercury conjunct Venus


This is a sweet day with two exciting conjunctions. If there's a downside it would likely be the reappearance of an interested ex you don't want to get back together with. Otherwise, enjoy the Jupiter in Leo vibes which expand opportunities and creativity. If you're an Aries or Leo hoping for good news about pregnancy or children you already have, maybe this is your day! Mercury and Venus in Libra favor better communication in partnership and boost love lives and romance generally. Libra, Aries, and Gemini are some of the benefactors today. Realize why you love your life! Today's color is pink.

Saturday: Leo to Virgo Moon

The Leo Moon aligns with the Sun, Mercury and Venus in Libra and also Mars in Sagittarius, filling the day with energy. Social events are charged with enthusiasm and friendliness, perhaps with a bit of competitive nature thrown in. You may see people dressing to impress and relaying stories of their travels and accomplishments. Yet most of this is likely to be friendly and open. Mars in Sagittarius is planting or activating the travel bug this season, so  it may feel great to take a trip, even just a short drive away. Act on educational plans during these weeks too, though actual applications are best sent after Mercury retrograde ends on the 25th.  If you send materials earlier, make sure they are well backed up, copied, and confirm that they arrived in the right place.  Mercury retro in harmony with the Moon makes it likely we run into old friends that we still like and are happy to hear from if they call! Void of course Moon is 9:10 am to 7:08 pm so it's not the best day to spend your hard earned dollars. Save shopping for night or better yet for after the 25th. Virgo Moon tonight. Today's color is purple.


Sunday: Virgo Moon

Catch up on projects once abandoned or unfinished. Virgo Moon favors simple tasks and clean up today. The Moon and Pluto can help you organize your stuff or your ideas and thoughts. Neptune adds a flow and a creative influence. No need to rush, no need to feel or exert pressure. Ease your way through the activities that call for your attention. That includes friends who may be in need of a hand. Today's color is brown. 

 

Weekly October 6th to 12th, 2014

 

Monday: Full Moon warming up, Pisces Moon

The Moon will be full with a lunar eclipse on Wednesday morning, in Aries. This will continue a 2 year cycle of Aries and Libra eclipses, and it will not pass through quietly. Aries is the warrior, and the individual. Get ready to lead your own charge fearlessly as everything whirls with change and potentially confusion. Confrontations will be easily triggered this week.  Allow for change. With an eclipse, we have to give up control and adjust to events that are quicker than anticipated or totally unexpected. You may see some rash action or judgment. Being in a healthy routine and surrounded by supportive people is the antidote for any other madness that may or may not impact your world.  Today the Moon is in sensitive Pisces squaring Mars in Sagittarius. I usually find these two signs get along well together and appreciate each other's tendency to fluctuate, both being mutable signs. However, Mars in Sagittarius is much too overbearing for Pisces Moon. People will be easily injured by words or harsh actions today. It may seem like compassion and understanding is hard to come by. Mars in Sagittarius is adventurous, but very bold and outspoken. If you're a quieter or more sensitive soul, you may feel the need to dodge someone or hide out.  Void of course Moon is 3:38 pm on. Do something that feeds your soul this afternoon. Tea with grandma or grandpa might be just the thing. Today's color is blue.


Tuesday: Aries Moon

The Moon is void until 6:07 am EDT. The Sun opposes Uranus in Aries, our Full Moon sign, and the Moon opposes Venus. The lunar eclipse will peak at 6:51 am tomorrow and is pushing the agenda now. If you're not in a relationship going through a change/make or break time, you probably know someone who is. Libra and Aries are the obvious choices, however rising sign has lots to do with it so any sign could be involved. Long, drawn out relationship issues may finally reach their breaking point so things have to go one way or another now. Aries is the self, and Libra is the sign that brings two together. I suspect we'll hear lots about breakups, partner decisions, and changes that seem to come from out of the blue as well as ones that don't surprise anyone.  The Full Moon is tomorrow, but today is event filled with eclipse activity.  During a lunar eclipse, we tend to complete cycles and have endings.  Avoid acting rashly or harshly. Tempers and feelings may be on edge all around.  Today's color is pink.


Wednesday: Lunar Eclipse in Aries, Full Moon

Lunar eclipses are always at Full Moon time.  Aries is the initiator, brave warrior, child, and individual as far as archetypes go. This eclipse could bring out any of that. When things get rocky, some act like children or want someone else to take care of things while some step up and become fierce, maybe even too much so. In relationships, a final break would be  more likely than a reconciliation now. Mercury retrograde is a factor too, but with an eclipse changes tend to be permanent with less room to change your mind later. Tread lightly through whatever events you're navigating. With a tendency toward fast and furious, maybe go extra slow and with lots of thought and care.  Balance the energy out. There are too many to mention, so suffice to say all signs are touched by the planetary aspects of the day itself.  Aries personally, Pisces employment wise, Leo with travels and communication, Cancer with career, money and home life. The Moon is Full at 6:51 am and void of course starting at 10:20 am for the rest of the day. Give yourself extra time for everything today and build in some relaxation or quiet.  Wear white.


Thursday: Taurus Moon

At 7:44 am the Moon shifts to Taurus, a sign that would love to come in and stabilize, simplify and fix everything. There's a tendency to be controlling today, partly due to lunar eclipse whipping certain things into a frenzy. Neptune tones it down a little bit, with room for imagination and creativity. The Moon is across from Mercury and misunderstandings are highly likely. Try not to guess or assume. Some of use will operate with the wrong set of directions in place. Ask questions. Save yourself some frustration by clarifying anything from where and when to the steps you need to follow. Do physical work, get lost in a project you enjoy...one that can't really go wrong based on someone else's expectation. Soften the edges around a situation or lend an ear to a friend having difficulty. Today's color is light blue. 

Friday: Mercury Retrograde to Libra

 

Mercury retrograde shifts into Libra at 1:26 pm. When Mercury changes signs, wait things out, expect your mind may change, and speak thoughtfully. Saturn across from the Moon can feel like a task master or bring out the critics. If you must give feedback or speak with authority, do so with a tone that won't trigger extreme responses. The Sun in Libra trine to Jupiter in Leo brings optimism, extroversion, & joy to the surface. That's where you want your focus and attitude to be! Laying low a bit may help ease tension or Mercury retrograde communication issues.  Lighten someone's burden or keep things light on yourself. The Taurus Moon moves void of course at 8:49 pm EDT, not interfering with the traditional business day. Reconnecting you unexpectedly with friends is one of Mercury's jobs while retrograde and you might enjoy (or avoid?) that tonight. Wear yellow.


Saturday: Gemini Moon

The Moon is void until 11:51 am and then in Gemini for the rest of the weekend including much of Monday, a holiday weekend in the USA. This morning, take your time and try not to overextend yourself. Venus is opposite Uranus and some relationships will be undergoing change, stress, excitement or unanticipated news. This might make it feel like Full Moon all over again and the eclipse is still impacting life events.  It takes time and processing to adjust when news isn't expected or even when a relationship is going to the next level.  Let yourself adjust and don't expect too much too fast.  Neptune also squares the Moon today. If you have lots of free time,  you might enjoy the floaty feeling of water and air signs interacting. Life might easily be compared to soaring through air or navigating at sea this week with the movement and energy of an eclipse and the fire sign grand trine simultaneous to the fluctuations of Mercury. This could be a day to go back over things, review or revise.  Make art, daydream or wander somewhere you used to go and don't make time for or live near now.  Today's color is blue.


Sunday: Gemini Moon

Yesterday looked a little tricky if anything important had to be dealt with. Today perhaps the Gemini social vibe will take over. Connections with people and even the surprises look more pleasant as Venus and Jupiter harmonize with the Moon. If possible, just enjoy the day. If you're going through a challenging time, it's a good day to talk, be with a best friend or contact an old friend you have an easy relationship with (not someone you left on bad terms with). Jupiter in Leo is about thinking expansively and acting the same, opening doors rather than limiting possibilities. Consider all the possible ways you can improve on life as you know it now.  Discussions may include forming partnerships, going forward together as a couple, engagements and other decisions you make together, with another.  Keep things somewhat flexible. Maybe put off setting a date or definite plan, but open up the possibilities. Enjoy a party or other gathering. Today's color is pink.

 

Weekly September 29th to October 5th, 2014

Monday: Venus in Libra, Sagittarius Moon


We're in a fire sign trend, and this is another day when the heat, enthusiasm, passion, and sometimes confrontational nature of fire is on! The Moon and Mars meet at 2:34 pm EDT. The Libra Sun, Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo are feeding this Sagittarius fire. The message is get moving! Be in the world experiencing all life has to offer. It's a day of spontaneous action. Enter a learning program, join a group or class, get out of your usual environment and do something that opens your mind. Keep in mind that Mercury is near retrograde and take no unnecessary risks. High risk is a no-no, but stepping out and losing some fear and allowing yourself new experiences is a yes! Today is bold, fierce and strong minded.  Venus moves to Libra where she is so at home! Libra, your graces and charms are all activated now! This helps all of us be more agreeable and less critical with each other. The Moon moves v.o.c at 11:29 pm EDT until Wednesday at 12:41 am. Tomorrow it may be hard to track people down or get anything significant accomplished without confusion. Procrastination is out, taking charge of your life is in! Today's color is orange.


Tuesday: Void of course Moon


All day the Moon is void, waiting to move to Capricorn overnight. You might wait out a big decision, not have enough information or the right people in place. It's ok! Maybe it's best since tomorrow's energy is more organized. Take care of routine things, know that shopping today is not really recommended. Save receipts. Have backup plans. Expect no shows. Go out and have fun if you can manage it! Explore a topic of interest. Wander if you can take time away from the day's usual tasks or places. Let go of pressure-your own or expecting something or someone else. Things will take their sweet time today. Some will move fast and some will move barely. Today's color is green.


Wednesday: Capricorn Moon


Welcome to October! The Capricorn Moon time starts at 12:41 am EDT. The 2nd quarter Moon, between New and Full, is at 3:33 pm. Today is meant for progress and productivity. Mercury sets up meetings and talks this morning. Some of that will relate to using discretion and being part of plans that must be kept secret for a while. Do that. Use very strong judgement around information and privacy and all business dealings. Find creativity in plans and justice and good balance in partnerships. It's a no nonsense day. Venus in Libra is encouraging more equality in one on one relationships. Today's color is black.

October Day Planner is on blogspot here


Thursday: Capricorn Moon


The Moon aligns with Saturn and squares Uranus. Keep your cool. Serious matters are up for trouble shooting, possible compromise, and solutions with built in defaults. Mercury retrograde begins Saturday. Take your time and make flexible plans. Finish or make good progress with a project. Uranus's element of instability may frazzle us today. Think of the solid, non negotiable core values, strategies or traits you have and rely on those as other things swirl around and there may be upsets.  Bring yourself back to the tried and true and remind others of that too. The Moon is void at 12:18 pm EDT. Best business is done in the morning or before that time in your zone. Today's color is navy blue. 


Friday: Aquarius Moon


At 4:00 am EDT, the Moon sails into Aquarius, an inventive and collaborative sign. Venus and the Sun in Libra align with, and Mercury is square to, the Moon. Negotiate and sort out the best ideas. Listen to each other fully. Consider alternative approaches. It's a social, people oriented day suited to conferences, events, and partnerships formed to get things done! Be part of a team or group if you have a chance. It's a good day or night to be with friends or attend a gathering. Though tonight it's best to play on the safe side as Mars and Uranus approach an overnight trine and things can happen unexpectedly and fast. Keep your head up tonight. Stay in the safety zone. Today's color is light blue.

Saturday: Sun square Pluto, Mercury retrograde

Beware of grandiose plans, taking on too much, and making promises you won't keep. The Sun square Pluto in Libra/Capricorn and Jupiter across from the Moon can both mean conflicts in plans or scale of things.  Mercury is retrograde officially at 1:02 pm EDT, and this first day is known for having all the symptoms including changes of mind, inability to follow through on a plan or schedule, technical difficulties, and unexpected visitors or interactions with people from the past. Even under different circumstances with Mercury, Saturn square to the Moon would mean stubborn opinions and roadblocks. Expect a detour one way or another today. Maybe it'll  be a pleasant one. Don't hold too tight to schedules or expectations, and it'll be easier on everyone.  The Moon is void of course at 2:32 pm. Know who your friends are, or at least who they were yesterday. Stay in the safe zone tonight. Today's color is black.


Sunday: Pisces Moon

The Moon is in Pisces as of 5:24 am EDT. Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio, and Mars is trine to Uranus. The Moon also meets Neptune today. Some pitfalls include deception including people who present differently than their true intent or nature.  That may be someone who reappears in your life now. Move very carefully and take your time, and above all trust that inner voice of discretion. Pisces Moon sometimes means we let boundaries down more easily. Just be careful. Literally. Mars is trine to Uranus and incidents happen very quickly and unexpectedly with those two in harmony.  Maybe it's an exciting adventure day, and that's best case scenario. It is not a good day to take obvious risks of any kind. No gambling, speeding, or other impulsive behavior. Take good care of pets and the kids.  Watch Disney movies (you know what I mean. Easy does it.) Today's color is green.

Lunar Eclipse in Aries next Wednesday, Oct 8th

 

 

Weekly September 22nd to 28th, 2014



Monday: Autumnal Equinox, Virgo Moon

Listen


Earth energies infuse this day that ends with the Sun shift to Libra at 10:29 pm EDT, the start of fall. Therefore, the first true day of the season is tomorrow! (When everyone says today is the first day of fall, you can remind them it's still summer until 10:29 p, 7:29p Pacific, or adjust to your own time zone.) Pluto is direct at 8:36 pm as well. What have you been healing and now find yourself ready to move on from? Pluto in Capricorn is a healing influence now, and making an offering to the earth is a great way to celebrate the Solstice. It can be simple, like pumpkin seeds, or water with sea salt that's been absorbing any negative energy from your home or workplace.  Capricorn is an earth sign, and the Virgo Moon is also a time to honor and thank the earth for all it provides for us. Bury something you can do without now, literally or otherwise. This is a day to do simple rituals with personal meaning and a connection to the greater good as well. In your routine, ground in useful tasks and accomplish things that make a contribution and feed your soul. Today's color is black. 


Tuesday: Virgo Moon

Listen


The Virgo Moon is void of course from 8:15 am until 11:59 pm EDT on this first full day of fall. Keep your focus simple and calendar flexible. If important meetings happen, leave plans somewhat adjustable and revisit them tomorrow. It's a good day or night to "sleep on it" and see how your mind bends around a plan or idea. Virgo is the sign of service to others and this is a favorable day for pitching in and getting cleaning, sorting, and home related things taken care of. It's a great day for walking, running, yoga and other activities that don't require competition or a partner. The Moon in harmony with Saturn and meeting Venus inspires us to sort things out in relationships in order to manage routines and responsibilities better together. That includes ex partners who share children, a business or property.  Venus is friendly and practical with the Virgo Moon today. Reconsider and get ready to step into new routines or revised plans. The New Moon arrives overnight. Today's color is pink.


Wednesday: New Moon in Libra

Listen


This New Moon is a rush of energy! Uranus is active from Aries, across from the Moon and in harmony with Jupiter in Leo. All that glitters really may turn to gold this week if Jupiter has his way! Uranus is the destroyer and re-creator. The phrase "all things are possible" comes to mind. Also these may be things you least thought could happen! I hope the New Moon brings wondrous surprises your way, today or in the weeks ahead. Meanwhile, I encourage you to align with these Jupiter aspects, blessings, benefits, and learning, by seeking opportunities, alliances, and innovative ways of doing things. Now is better than later since Mercury retrograde is just ahead. What can you make happen and bring together now?! Invite in what you're hoping for, without urgency or a sense of one particular expectation. Just invite in friendship, love, abundance, solutions and let them unfold! Do contact people who can help you in the direction you seek! Libra New Moon is people oriented and above all, balanced and fair. Change a situation that's full of imbalance. Release a responsibility that's not really yours. Find new ways of dividing and sharing and living together happily.  White is today's color.


Thursday: Jupiter trine Uranus

Listen


The Libra Moon is in harmony with Jupiter in Leo and across from Uranus in Aries as the two form a trine. This is a "Wow" day with effects that last longer than just one moment or day, so if nothing spectacular graces your Thursday, rest assured, these planets are aligning for all of us in a time release way. Jupiter in Leo is creative and about birthing and growing anything from a child to a business to more opportunities for travel. Uranus has the speed of wildfire in Aries, and quick action, answers to longstanding questions or offers happen swiftly, whether you were prepared or not! Look for these kinds of things within a few days on either side of this and especially before October 4th when Mercury retrograde begins. As you manifest, give back as well. Keep fair exchanges in mind, whether it's money, friendship or energy. Justice wins. This may be the time to give up a behavior that's limiting or ego based, become more attuned to others, and see how the universe gives back! Today's color is red.


Friday: Moon conjunct Mercury in Libra, Scorpio Moon


This is a day for fair outcomes, dealing with legal situations and finding balance in partnership and love relationships. The Moon and Mercury give you this opportunity to have the discussion, negotiate a fair plan or agreement and move forward with it before Mercury retrograde. If something like this is pending for you, finish it and resolve by the end of the weekend. Otherwise know that your next best timing will be after October 25th. A short void of course Moon from 8:39 am to 10:29 am EDT is followed by Scorpio Moon until Sunday at 6:50 pm. Decisions take hold. The Moon and Neptune align for strong intuition, psychic hits, strong impressions, feelings and dreams. Today's color is indigo blue.

Saturday: Mercury in Scorpio

The Scorpio Moon is joined by Mercury at 6:39 pm EDT. Mercury in Scorpio is an investigator, researcher, and mystery writer. Interesting information surfaces and will be up for discussion in the weeks ahead, particularly since Mercury will be retrograde in a few days and we'll revisit these degrees of Mercury. When Mercury changes signs, perspective shifts. You may change your mind or be impacted as someone else sees a situation with different eyes now. Things are quite impermanent at this point so close to the retrograde, so patience helps. The Moon aligns with Pluto, recently direct in Capricorn. Deep and long held feelings come up. This is more about internally resolving something for yourself. Introspection is likely and you might even feel alone in a crowd.  Create some time for yourself today or tonight. We may need to be tolerant and put a shield on out there in the world. Today's color is black.


Sunday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon

Scorpio Moon meets Saturn and lines up with Venus in Virgo. Get a handle on relationship issues. Keep a good boundary even while being forgiving or more tolerant of someone.  There's a tendency to make decisions though with Mercury so close to retrograde it's best to build in the right to change your mind or alter things in a month. It's a good day to organize, prioritize, and attend to personal business even if that's just about cleaning your room or workspace. Creativity is stimulated, though Saturn's rules may be something you have to consider.  Take a plan and improvise with more color, detail, and heart. The void of course Moon is relatively short, from 4:31to 5:56 pm EDT. Tonight can be fun & competitive, though some will make it a study night under Sag Moon, sign of higher learning. Today's color is purple.

Monday: Gemini Moon

Listen on Soundcloud! Download a free app on google play or itunes & follow on your phone or ipad!

The Moon interacts with the Sun, Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter and Venus. When the Moon is in Gemini, choose your words carefully both spoken and written. There's plenty to be discussed and business to be done. Jupiter in Leo encourages connecting with people who share your values or agenda. Mercury in Libra adds to this networking and negotiating influence.  Write a plan for marketing or get into the details of an event. Writing is generally favored for you Zodiac Zone author/readers! Decision making may not be easy though. Things happen fast and there's an unexpected element as Uranus in Aries makes contact with the Moon, changing situations and minds rapidly. Void of course Moon starts at 10:06 pm for study breaks and social calls. Today's color is blue.


Tuesday: Cancer Moon

Listen

Early hours can be confusing or chaotic as the Gemini Moon is void of course and our minds race and become preoccupied. Check your calendar and avoid spacing on an appointment or meeting. Cancer Moon moves in at 11:24 am EDT and harmonizes with Neptune in Pisces. Conservative business with a creative aspect is favored. Be resourceful and sensitive to a client's wish list.  At home and with family, it's a cooking, gardening, cleaning and constructive time. Whip up a nice dinner or dessert to share! Get the garden ready for fall or for next spring. Fishing and farming are highlighted on the almanac calendar. That can be extended to other activities that create comfort and abundance! Today's color is light blue. 


Wednesday: Cancer Moon

Listen

Saturn in Scorpio requests, if not demands, action on major projects or decisions this week. Take responsibility and dig into tasks today. Learn or train others through experience and get beyond the instructions and into how things operate. Respect will be earned, not freely gifted. Show you care and can handle what needs taking care of. Pluto and Uranus are square to the Moon, and things pile up, mostly in the mind. Today and tomorrow's business could feel a bit overwhelming and include recurring patterns. The good news is Venus in harmony with the Moon is romantic for a date after the work day. Venus n Virgo also helps with order and attention  to detail and that agrees with Mars and Saturn's influences today and tomorrow. Wear green. 


Thursday: Cancer to Leo Moon

Listen

Yesterday's forecast holds true for another several hours. Saturn seeks permanence and meaningful interactions. Some of this may relate to family and elders. Put the wraps on something or find a long term solution once and for all, and with care.  Mercury in Libra emphasizes the importance of fairness and balance, with family members, in legal matters, and with business of all kinds. There may be a lot to negotiate and work through, but the Moon and Sun in harmony inspire confidence and decisions and careful consideration. Leave a little room for adjustment or improvement later on. It's great to get things handled and in writing before Mercury retrograde dominates October.  The Moon is v.o.c. from 2:38 to 11:10 pm. Use those hours to unwind or do routine things. At 11:10 pm EDT the Moon moves to optimistic, energetic Leo. Today's color is purple.


Friday: Leo Moon

Listen

The Leo Moon in tandem with Mars make this a day for adventure and activity. The Moon in the sign of children with Mars in Sagittarius indicates kids will need to be happily engaged  in learning or play or they're more likely to act out today. Honesty is a significant theme. Leo Moon needs loyalty and trust. Mars in Sagittarius instigates the truth. Anything less could create a permanent rift between friends or partners. Leo is a fixed sign and the Moon, our emotions. Take off for a fun, different scene today or tomorrow. Wear red.

Saturday: Leo Moon


Leo Moon and Jupiter meet, and the Moon forms a harmonious trine to Uranus in Aries. This is the building of a wave that breaks on the 25th, a very interesting and dynamic day as Jupiter trines Uranus. Jupiter and Uranus are like a big fireworks display, and breakthroughs, innovative plans, and big announcements are some of the possible highlights of the last third of the month. If something very good and seemingly sudden happens today, follow the lead. The more it involves recreating and growing something in your life, the more likely it is activity of these two planets. Whatever you do today, build in time to play and enjoy. Allow yourself to be surprised and believe in what's good, bountiful, and expansive. Brighten the dark spots with positivity, and with the Moon squaring Saturn, try not to be so stubborn, you miss the point or the opportunity. Often we must give up a stubborn ideal or idea to let something else better take hold. Today's color is gold.


Sunday: Virgo Moon


From 12:33 am to 11:54 am EDT the Moon is v.o.c in Leo. This is fine for pleasure and hanging out, and less favorable for big decisions or purchases.  The Moon then moves to Virgo for the two days preceding New Moon in Libra, Wednesday. This is a time of reconsidering and revising plans.  Put energy toward organizing and also managing responsibilities and agreements in relationships as Venus in Virgo harmonizes with Saturn in Scorpio. This may not be the fun stuff of love and romance, but it IS the glue that holds things together and contributes to smooth days and nights together. Sort out the things that irritate you by forming new plans for day to day life or shared work. Mars and Neptune contribute to creative tension from which great things can be born. Be careful in your travels of anything that could be deceptive. Walk with no illusions as this week begins. Virgo Moon is practical and close to the earth. Today's color is navy blue

 

                             Weekly September 8th to 14th, 2014

Monday: Full Moon in Pisces

Listen

The Moon is full at 9:38 pm EDT. Venus and the Sun oppose the Moon from Virgo while Neptune & the Moon light up Pisces and Pluto is in harmony from Capricorn. Let's explore some ideas and areas of those heavenly bodies for insight! Neptune has a strong influence and is romantic and artistic. The god of the sea is Neptune, and he's also known to create illusions around things. The romance and imagination is beautiful when it's real and true. If you have doubts or tugs of intuition that something, or more likely someone, is not being real with you, ask questions, take care of your own interests, and be smart. Venus in Virgo also puts the lens of love and relationship on during this Full Moon. Step back and look realistically at boundaries and what's good for you. This Full Moon is highly emotional and sensitive and I see that as beneficial because you will be able to feel your way through, use your instincts, ask for the intuition of trusted friends or "counselors". Have an intuitive reading, meditate, and ask whatever oracle or spirits you invoke for guidance. Include the voice of nature which will be powerful now too, and visit a favorite spot during this Harvest Moon. Your answer or what you need to say may just appear in thought or in physical form! Pluto is about facing things deep within, and in harmony with the Pisces Moon, Pluto says don't be afraid. Let the Full Moon light up dark places since once light reflects there, they lose the power to hold you back. Expect to feel, release what you can, be lighter, support each other from a true place, and engage your creative self! This could be renamed the Cathartic Moon. Today's color is white.


Tuesday: Pisces to Aries Moon

Listen

The Pisces Moon is still Full and with the influence of Scorpio based Saturn and Mars, it's serious business and no excuses. Get things in order, resolve, make a solid decision, and without banning emotions, keep them in check. Saturn is authorities, elders, and also may relate to health. Mars activates and confronts.  Face things rather than shy away. Hold your ground if it comes from an honest place. If you're in a position of authority, you may deal with sensitive issues or employees. Most of this has come due at Full Moon time for a reason. Think of the phrase once and for all. From 3:10 to 7:33 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course waiting to jump to Aries. In Aries, courage and resilience come from the reserves. You may need both and a strong voice too as Mercury and Pluto square. The revelations of this Full Moon may come in it's wake. Tonight especially, people will speak their truth and some of it may not been pretty or anticipated.  The catharsis of the Full Moon continues.  Today's color is gold.


Wednesday: Aries Moon, Venus opposite Neptune

Listen

A whirl of astrological energy as Venus opposes Neptune picking up where the Pisces Moon left off (if it did!), and romance is in the air. Ideally, relationships work out for the best because you belong together, not because you're lured back in by mere charm or need. It's all about intentions. This can be quite the romantic day or evening if the conditions are right. Mercury, meanwhile, aligns with Jupiter in Libra/Leo, and is expressive and newsworthy. People around you may make announcements especially about growth or expansion  in their lives.  It's a good time to meet potential collaborators and people who can back you up or become partners in your endeavors. The Moon is also in harmony with Jupiter, and Aries, Leo and Libra may feel quite lucky! At 8:58 pm void of course Moon begins and lasts for most of tomorrow. Today's color is red.


Thursday: Void Moon, Sun trine Saturn

Listen

The void of course Moon is a listening, waiting, routine time where new action on things might be wasted since a shift will occur in hours.  If you clean and sort things, have a system so you can find or remember later! The Sun sextile to Saturn makes it difficult to put a decision off though, if one is pending.  These two in Virgo and Scorpio practically insist that plans and goals are in motion asap. Order is a key word for the day, and you can take that either way in terms of meaning! The Moon will move to Taurus tonight, and that may be the time to commit to a goal, a plan or a person, if you can wait out the void of course hours successfully. Taurus Moon begins at 9:17 pm. Today's color is green.


Friday: Taurus Moon

Listen

The Moon squares Jupiter in Leo. Get out of a stuck place and brighten your life. This might be a day to give to yourself more. Another way to align with this square is to listen and be less fixed in your ideas or ways. Consider how you could open up options. It's a career day for Leo and a home and family influence for Taurus. Taurus Moon is in harmony with Venus in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. This is positive for both accomplishing and enjoying people and relationships, and includes doing creative things that involve physical effort, like building, making, yoga, dancing, and landscaping or gardening.  Taking action makes us feel good, generally. It's a great date night, especially for Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus and Scorpio. Today's color is pink.


Saturday: Mars in Sagittarius, Mercury opposite Uranus

The Taurus Moon is void of course from 9:31 am until Sunday at 2:26 am. Time to take it easy and slow. Mercury opposite Uranus can mean lots of last minute changes, things or appear who appear unexpectedly, and strange or sudden news. Try to find your calm, cool, collected zone early and maintain it. It's not a good day to make big spending decisions. Mars moves to Sagittarius, a place of movement and change, at 5:57 pm EDT for a 6 week stay. Mars encourages us to learn from experience now. Get involved, go new places, work the body and mind both.  At the same time, use some caution to avoid injury, especially to the hips, and all the surrounding muscles, which are ruled by Sagittarius.  Wear appropriate shoes. Maybe tomorrow is a hiking boot or sneaker shopping day. Today's color is red.


Sunday: Gemini Moon, Mercury trine Pluto

At 2:26 am EDT, the Moon moves to Gemini, opposes Mars newly in Sagittarius and squares Pluto hours later.  Confrontations during the opposition could be extra challenging and get out of hand easily. With this action in Gemini and Sagittarius. people will say things they don't really mean and go far in trying to prove a point. Philosophical differences will be obvious today, but the message and real truth may not be clear at all. Avoid an argument. Trust your instinct over anyone's words. Neptune can further confuse, from Pisces. Mercury is in harmony with Pluto, in Virgo and Capricorn. That will help keep things real and can involve divulging important information. Talk with people you trust who can help you sort things out and maybe get a lead you need as well. It's a good day for writing and studies. Today's color is yellow.

 

                                                 Weekly September 1st to 7th

                                                     

Monday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon 

Listen here!

Scorpio Moon moves void of course at 11:40 am EDT and shifts to Sagittarius at 1:17 pm. Earlier hours include a Moon and Venus square. Ease any tension in your relationship by simply being nice and gentler with each other this morning. Sagittarius Moon in harmony with Mercury encourages travels and activity. If you need to study, it's not bad either though learning through experience would be more suitable on a day/evening like this. Expect plenty of interaction and action as the day goes on. Today's color is purple. 

 

Tuesday: Mercury in Libra

Listen here!

Mercury changes signs at 1:38 am. In Libra, Mercury sets us up for mediating, meeting new contacts or friends, and getting anything more in balance.  In October, Mercury will back track into Libra again, but that's not impacting these early days of Mercury in Libra. Make a deal, sign a contract, develop a fair and equitable plan now. Capricorn is favored for career moves, and Aries for improved communication in marriage and other close relationships.  The Sagittarius Moon is busy with aspects to Neptune, the Sun, Jupiter and Uranus, and this signals a bit of everything! Changes or possibilities may be announced unexpectedly, and rapidly become a done deal. Many distractions or pulls can take you off track. Be in the moment. Ignoring a responsibility won't make it go away. React only when you're calm and have thought things out. Under Sagittarius Moon, sometimes we're too blunt. Today's color is red.

 

Wednesday: Sun trine Pluto, Sagittarius to Capricorn Moon

Listen here!

The Sun and Pluto harmonize in earth signs Virgo and Capricorn. Find the soul in what you're doing. Progress is due as we move toward Full Moon on the 8th, Monday. The Pluto/Sun trine helps combine realism & optimism. What you need to do may not seem as hard once you see the value, progress, and light dawning as a result.  Sagittarius Moon is void of course from 2:06 pm to 6:15 pm EDT. Capricorn Moon squares Mercury tonight. Think before you act or speak or commit. What is the most fair way to sort things out? Solve problems with a combination of action plans and actual effort. Take a step to a goal or something that comes due soon. Aim for order. Today's color is yellow.

 

Thursday: Capricorn Moon conjunct Pluto

Listen here!

Pluto relates to deeply hidden or held parts of ourselves. Fear is one good example, and when the emotional Moon meets Pluto each month, it's a chance to conquer a fear or choose to hold onto it. Face something with courage today and transform it. Or maybe wait another month or two until it comes up again. It's always your choice. The Sun is helping though, with a confident trine from Virgo saying things align and the actual action you take can produce some results, possibly faster or smoother than you expect. Energy in the earth signs means doing. Walk the walk. Put effort into your ideas and goals. Uranus may throw a curve that requires quick response. Create some order with a sense of calm and a plan. Help, do, contribute and you will alleviate stress on your part and probably someone else's too. Today's color is black.

 

Friday: Venus in Virgo

Listen here!

From 11:08 am to 7:59 pm EDT the Moon is void of course in Capricorn. Plan important business outside those hours. It's a good day to accomplish something early or on Pacific time maybe at the tail end of the day. Venus moves to Virgo at 1:07 pm after a glorious month in Leo. Attention to details and refining skills and projects is favored. Virgo, you're the magnet of the month as Venus attracts what you need. Mars and Saturn in Scorpio have a word with the Capricorn Moon helping finalize things. The Moon will be Full Monday and by now you may be aware of what can wait no longer. Aquarius Moon from 7:59 pm on is for gatherings. Today's color is blue.


Saturday: Aquarius Moon

The Full Moon on Monday is just something to keep in mind, mainly because it may explain why you feel something intensely, feel out of sorts without explanation, or are under pressure to meet a due date.  The Aquarius Moon opposite Jupiter encourages us to bring things to scale, either up or down in order to reach a balanced place.  Moon and Mercury indicate a busy day of social plans, events and gatherings. Getting lost in a crowd might even feel just right.  Today's color is turquoise.


Sunday: Aquarius to Pisces Moon

The Moon is nearly Full and will peak in Pisces Monday at 9:38 pm EDT. This is a day to get things done and lower stress levels by being productive and feeling caught up.  It's also a good day for collaborating with like minded colleagues or friends, being inventive, and finding long term resolutions and plans, both personal and business related.  Saturn and Mars in Scorpio can add to tension or pressure, yet they also urge finalizing and honing in on priorities.  Act on the areas where effort and progress is most needed.  Responsibilities trump fun, all in all. From 1:19 to 7:47 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course. Pisces Moon moves in then and is opposite Venus. There will be personal and emotional overtones to everything during this September Full Moon. Be prepared to respond to other people's emotions and situations as well as for powerful waves of feeling within yourself.  Today's color is green.

                                      Weekly August 25th to August 31st

 

Monday: New Moon in Virgo

Clear the path for this Virgo New Moon at 10:13 am EDT. New Moons generally are times to start fresh, initiate, and change your course. Today, Mars, Saturn and Mercury also team up for things that need final resolution (usually more of a Full Moon thing). Mars and Saturn had their retrogrades, both ended in July, and weeks later they meet in Scorpio, sign of longevity and tenacity. Mercury supports both planets, from Virgo. Be flexible in order to reach an agreement, commit to a long term plan, and solve longstanding problems or disagreements.  You must be willing to let go of something in favor of a new plan, most likely a compromise.  Neptune provides the imagination and vision from Pisces across the zodiac.  Dream a new dream today. There may well be a chance to enact it right away.  Changes in relationship status will be a topic as well. Today's color is white.


Tuesday: Venus square Saturn

Yesterday Venus and Uranus combined forces in fiery Leo and Aries, and now Venus squares Saturn, one of the major planetary influences during this New Moon. It's time to sort things out in relationships and agree to disagree or put in great effort for change and progress. Some relationships will hit milestones this week. They will tend to be the ones suffering from neglect, unresolved problems and on the brink of dissolving.  Decisions between couples and other partners are in the forecast early this week.  To hold things together and go forward, be willing to listen and make step by step plans aiming for better days and more harmony. Tonight the Moon and Mercury meet in Virgo, favoring constructive conversations. Put your ideas into words, written or spoken, without any added blame, drama or sulking. Get to the point. At 10:29 pm EDT, the Moon moves void of course before transitioning to Libra at 5:54 pm tomorrow. Plan accordingly and get things in order before 10:30 tonight. Today's color is navy blue.


Wednesday: Void of Course Moon, Venus square Mars

Issues between lovers, friends, spouses and other partners are in the forefront as Venus squares Mars in Leo/Scorpio. This aspect contains strong passion and conviction and will feel like an all or nothing prospect.  Loyalty is paramount. Being willing to somehow put divergent attitudes or agendas aside and look at the core of the relationship is what's needed. A square can bring progress. We'd never take initiative without the tension of squares, but in two fixed signs, persistence and lots of heart will be required to move forth.  What do you really want? Have a heart to heart. Lay it all out for honest discussion-this is not always easy for Scorpio (where Mars is). Peel away some layers in the interest of knowing rather than living uncertainly any longer.  If this isn't relevant to your life, today is meant to be very simple and is a good catch up or vacation day. Tonight's Libra Moon from 5:54 pm on, encourages us to get together. Wear indigo blue today. 


Thursday: Libra Moon


Libra Moon in harmony with Jupiter in Leo is for extroverts and big thinkers! Connecting with like minded people who share your ideals and vision is favored. Performances may be inspired and planning or rehearsing for an event is well timed too! Open options and your mind. We'll tend to do things in special ways, act generously, and attract the same. Moon also squares Pluto and the subtleties of communication and interactions will be noticed. If you're acting superficially, for example, someone will read through it. Attune to the little things that speak loudly. Trust instincts. Today's color is pink.


Friday: Sun opposite Neptune, Moon opposite Uranus


Opposing forces in 4 different signs and a void of course Moon in Libra from 12:00 pm on contribute to a potentially confusing and scattered day. Sun and Neptune in Virgo/Pisces can be distracting and less than practical. Be aware of potential illusions or giving too much credit where it's not earned. Libra Moon and Uranus in Aries are equally distracting, may be erratic and contribute to indecisiveness, sudden shifts in plans, and more that can throw us off balance.  The good news is Moon and Venus in Leo smile on social events -once you decide what to pursue. Spontaneous may work out best today and tonight.  It's a date night for Leo, Libra, Aries, and Aquarius especially. Today's color is lavender.


Saturday: Scorpio Moon

The Moon moves to Scorpio at 4:53 am EDT and aligns with Neptune & the Sun. This is the romantic date of the weekend. The positive, alluring Scorpio traits of mystery, magic, intuition, creativity and passion in love activate (versus tomorrow when more of the dark influences show up). It's also a good day for organizing and redecorating. Choose a paint color or new arrangement of things. Dates and intimate gatherings are favored.  Today's color is maroon. 


Sunday: Moon conjunct Mars & Saturn

Scorpio Moon, Saturn and Mars are a formidable team. However, this dynamic instigates anger, jealousy, and unresolved feelings of all kinds too. Use this to be persistent with worthwhile goals. Avoid people with short fuses or situations that could get dangerous or uncertain. Have a healthy outlet if you feel depressed or extreme in any way that could be a detriment to you or someone else. It's still a good day to dive into organizing things at work or home or to persist in completing a project. Focus is strong today. Not everyone will be feeling social. Moon and Jupiter in Leo has the introverts and extroverts going their separate ways. No means no. Believe those who want to do their own thing and let them be. Today's color is black.

Monday: Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo

One of the most auspicious dates of the year, Venus meets Jupiter. Love and growth. Beauty and benevolence. Harmony and generosity. These are some of the combinations these two planets encourage and represent. It's a day to say yes to growth, learning and love. Leo is home to these two planets right now, and lions and lionesses benefit. Reach for every opportunity and enjoy good fortune, Leo! Aries is lucky with this conjunction too. Sagittarius will grow and thrive with movement now, and going abroad or away to school or a training program is favored.  Aquarius is the darling of the zodiac for deepening love and commitment. Happy news is likely for Aquarius marriages and long term relationships. The Gemini Moon is in harmony with both planets and adds the communication piece, with news, significant conversations and agreements, and helps business relationships develop too. Tonight Mercury is opposite Neptune and amidst celebrations and positivity, be cautious about where and who you trust. The con factor is high and you don't want to be deceived. Today's color is pink.


Tuesday: Gemini Moon

Gemini Moon aligns with the Sun in Leo and Uranus in Aries for an active, vibrant day. Energy is "up". Hyper, talkative, and in some cases urgent or pushy, communication is fast paced and people will be moving fast. Mainly, we can get things done quickly though there can be overreactions or a sense of being overwhelmed too. Tell yourself the right things and use the confident Leo Sun attitude and avoid nervousness. We all may need to calm down a bit, yet at the other end of the spectrum, the dynamic and expressive nature of the day can be a great benefit for getting things moving and off the back burner. Initiate a new plan. Let something that is not working out go. Shift and transform. Void of course Moon 10:54 pm EDT until 4:45 am Wednesday. Today's color is yellow.


Wednesday: Cancer Moon

At 4:45 am EDT, Cancer Moon moves in. The effect is more settled. Moon in harmony with Neptune amplifies water sign traits like sensitivity, caring, and artistic sensibility. It's a good day to take care of things at home, do conservative business or shopping, and put effort into what yields -like fishing and gardening and possibly investing too. Connect with people gently and compassionately. Give your attention to your closest priorities. Today's color is light blue.


Thursday: Cancer Moon, Mercury trine Pluto

Cancer Moon with vibes from Mercury, Pluto, Mars, Uranus and Saturn. Many aspects of life, and emotion in particular, are influenced. Whatever you are choosing or required to do, pace yourself and stay out of drama.  Feelings come into play in a big way.  An off the cuff remark or unexpected action could snowball into something you never intended. Be mindful with people's feelings. Mercury and Pluto work for disclosure, much like last week's Mars/Pluto sextile, and  in fact this could continue a process from Thursday or Friday where elusive information finally comes out in the open. Mysteries solved. Writing and research are favored. Contact sources who can support your plans. At 3:34 pm the Moon moves void of course and if you can warp up the week's business early, it's worthwhile. Today's color is blue.


Friday: Cancer/Leo Moon

The Moon cruises Cancer until 4:49 pm, void of course. It's not the most productive business day. Changing our minds later, needing to revise or not having the right people in place to finalize things are some of the disadvantages. It's a great vacation day. Be outdoors, do simple, personal tasks and take time for creative projects and following your inspiration. Leo Moon sets us up for festivities, parties and other social plans tonight and tomorrow. Today's color is purple.


Saturday: Leo Moon, Sun to Virgo

The 3rd phase of summer begins today. The Sun moves to Virgo at 12:46 am and meets both Jupiter and Venus! What a day for a wedding or celebration! The luck and love of those two planets combines with the Sun in Leo for fun and longevity! It's a day of promises you can keep! Parties are well timed and performances are inspired. Do what you enjoy. Be with people. Attend events. Expect long term impact of what you engage in today. Wear gold.


Sunday: Void of Course Moon in Leo

The Moon is void, waiting to change signs, from 4:26 am today to 5:33 am Monday. On this day before New Moon, go over plans and progress, evaluate where things are and what needs to happen next. Tomorrow is a reboot, a time to refresh, amp up, and make changes. Squares to Saturn and Mars may activate us around problems and stuck points, but only the most simple solutions are recommended during void of course Moon. Brainstorm and agree to regroup early in the week for finalizing. This is a day for fun and relaxation! Play games and gather for festivities. Shopping and other business are better for tomorrow. Void of course Moon is not the time for sharpest judgement. Fully enjoy an August day, weather permitting. Play it a bit on the safe side in every way. Today's color is yellow.

 

                      Weekly Astrology August 11th to 17th

Monday: Pisces Moon

Following Sunday's Aquarius SuperMoon, Pisces Moon time begins at 8:55 am. Developments and news from the weekend's Full Moon are still relevant and impact the day. Pisces Moon is good for making adjustments and adapting. This emotional place in the zodiac is also Neptune's home now, and spirituality, creativity, and feelings are heightened. Escapist tendencies are best acted out with spontaneous road trips, browsing galleries, creating art or music or just wandering. Whether it's at the beach or on a city street, a fresh perspective and little to accomplish is the way to spend this Monday. Business will be impacted by relationships and emotional decisions.The Moon aligns with Mars tonight and can be romantic. Spend time with people you love, if anyone, since we'll need to go deep in conversations and trust is a factor. Cancer, it's Venus's last night in your sign. Make it a date night. Pisces and Capricorn, that goes for you too! Today's color is green.


Tuesday: Venus in Leo

Venus, planet of love and attraction, moves to Leo at 3:24 am, joining the Sun, Jupiter & Mercury and making this peak Leo time. Leo, use all your magnetism, talent and charm to maximize this concentration of universal energy! Aquarius, this is all about true love and creative partnerships of other kinds. Draw in the person who complements and balances you or strengthen the relationship you're in! Cancer and Scorpio, this is great money and career energy for you! Seek new employment and upgrades or promotions now! Aries, a lucky streak could be all yours! Libra, make new friends and enjoy good times with friends and collaborators in your world. Venus is in Leo until September 5th. The Pisces Moon connects with Pluto and Saturn for a solid business and decision making time before 12:01 pm. Then it's void of course Moon time until 9:00 am EDT tomorrow, and generally we may lose track...of time, where we need to be or what we were thinking earlier. It's a good afternoon or night to just enjoy life. Simple and routine catching up is also favored.  Today's color is blue.


Wednesday: Aries Moon

A foggy, sleepy start is to be expected. The more organized you are, the better for this morning. At 9:00 am EDT the Moon moves to Aries and some things will move fast, including relationship based business as the Moon and Venus align. It's a day for networking, publicity, realizing that sometimes it is based on who you know and maintaining the best collaborative relationships. This is also a day to take initiative, see where you can learn, grow and do things in new ways. Jupiter in Leo is also in harmony with the Moon on this extroverted, open minded, expansive day and night. Today's color is red.


Thursday: Aries Moon conjunct Uranus & square Pluto

If you've made progress with breaking an old pattern or changing a relationship for the better (even if that meant breaking up), and you slip a little today or someone challenges you with an old trigger, take a deep breath and see if you can let it go. Aries Moon is fast and fierce and might be instigated easily today by startling news or old ghosts. The Moon is also in harmony with the Sun in Leo however, and that takes the edge off, puts fun in anything, and helps us brush off the annoying or unwanted. Act with optimism, use your assertive voice, brave face, confident attitude, and don't get sucked in. Today's color is orange. 


Friday:  Mercury in Virgo, Mars sextile Pluto

The Moon is void of course for a brief 8 minutes from 11:50 to 11:58 am EDT and moves to Taurus as noon approaches.  Mars and Pluto are delving deep into mysteries and problems that need solving. Interesting information could surface during this part of the week, including yesterday and tomorrow. Ask pointed questions and get clarifications. Investigate and leave no stone unturned. Mercury moves into detail oriented and versatile Virgo at 12:44 pm EDT. Projects that require analyzing and putting plans into action are favored during the next few weeks. Communicate clearly and directly. Confront misunderstandings head on & with willingness to listen as Venus in Leo and the Taurus Moon square. Today's color is indigo.


Saturday: Taurus Moon opposes Mars and Saturn

Persistent and stubborn fixed energy characterizes this Taurus/Scorpio day. It could be very challenging in personal relationships or business especially for those two signs. Dominant personalities and opinions will impact whatever is going on. Everyone may claim his or her way is better, have a different story or agenda, and it will be generally hard to change minds. Use this strong energy to persevere, go forward with bold plans, and get physical work, like building, done. It may not be the easiest Saturday to just relax. Today's color is black.


Sunday: Taurus to Gemini Moon, Moon square the Sun

The Moon and Sun square in fixed Taurus and Leo, continuing the stubborn streak. Lean into challenges if you want to get somewhere. Don't fight, rather find a way to collaborate or neutralize any problem or situation.  Both signs are confident in their own right and go about life in different ways.  Great partners at their best and in complete misunderstanding at their worst, Taurus Moon and Leo Sun are both driven. It's a day to step up rather than avoid, to work through rather than dwell on differences. Possibly, you can come up with sustainable plans and agree on how to go forward, put on a memorable performance or combine tradition and new, creative methods to find the best way ever. Today's color is gold.

 

                    Weekly Astrology August 4th to 10th, 2014

                                     Full Moon in Aquarius August 10th

Monday: Scorpio Moon

The Scorpio Moon and Saturn meet! I have written this to you many times since last fall, but now Saturn is direct and it's easier to deal with situations that have been stubborn or heavy. Mars energy is also in Scorpio and it's all about transforming.  Be the alchemist, see the circumstances as they are and take action to shift what needs to move. Scorpio is intuitive and strong willed, and Saturn relates to our elders. If you are dealing with an elderly relative or serve that community in some way, it's a time of decisions, long term planning, and resolution or agreements everyone can stick with. This is one area of life impacted, and there are more like health, mental health, and business organization. Venus helps out from Cancer with a caring, soft approach and the way to find harmony. Things that are serious on today's agenda may go more easily than you anticipated.  The Moon is void of course from 1:49 pm EDT until Tuesday at 6:19 am. Today's color is black.

Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon

The Moon in Sagittarius from 6:19 am this morning until Thursday morning contacts many planets in a favorable way, including Jupiter today. Jupiter is Sag's ruling planet and travel, education, freedom and philosophy are highlighted. Adventures will be appealing. It might be hard to keep to schedules and plans unless they are very enticing and exciting. You may spend time considering what you really want from life and how to achieve that. If you're moving away and making big life changes, your energy will be in that direction. Sagittarius also rules equestrians, archery, and global business, all of which are favored for luck, growth and activity today. Neptune tries to pull us off schedule and maybe off course. You may fight a drowsy feeling and have to put extra effort into focusing.  There's much mutable (changeable and malleable) energy in the air today, and the Jupiter in Leo influence is for larger, grander, sparkling and long lasting with whatever your biggest endeavor is. Today's color is purple.

Wednesday: Void of Course Moon

The best time for sure action and decisions is early, prior to void of course Moon time at 10:52 am EDT. You'll see people missing from their usual posts, trying to escape extra responsibility, and off on excursions and exploring paths after that time. A long void of course Moon can be good for a breather. If important business is pending, the right players may not be available. Yet, the Moon and Leo Sun harmonize at 6:36 am and Uranus throws in a word from Aries at 10:52. A game changer from mid morning through the day is a good possibility. Try to take one thing at a time, relax some, and have reasonable expectations. It's not the most reliable time, but fun and discovery can happen spontaneously. If you scrap the original plan, it's probably for good reason. Today's color is red.

Thursday: Capricorn Moon, Mars trine Neptune

Mars and Neptune combine in the water signs, Scorpio and Cancer for a highly charged day. Emotions are best channeled productively into art, writing, music, or anything creative. Swimming and being near the water has a positive influence on the soul, and today may be the day to answer that call! We need to do something with strong feelings on a day like this.  Have a good outlet that works for you.  Capricorn Moon moves in at 9:38 am EDT and aligns with those two planets to help us achieve or produce something worthwhile.  Reign in scattered energy. Reduce a problem by clearing away clutter or get to the heart of a matter by letting extraneous distractions go so you can solve the real issue. Aim for no drama and productive solutions.  Today's color is indigo blue.

Friday: Sun, Mercury, Uranus trine

The Moon in in Capricorn, a sign with ambition and a take charge approach.  As the Moon/Pluto monthly meeting happens, behind the scenes influences shape things (Aquarius, this applies to you) and we need to realistically look at our problems and goals, both (Sagittarius with work and money, Aries with career and use of talents and leadership). The potent action of the day comes in the fire signs though, as Mercury in Leo, Uranus in Aries and the Sun collectively contribute to announcements, strong statements, self expression, dynamic creativity, and authenticity. Some news will come by surprise, especially from Leo and maybe Aries too. Aquarius, your love life and opportunities are highly charged!  Scorpio, a career move suddenly makes sense or you may be thrust into a spotlight or role, whether you requested that or not.  We move into the Full Moon zone now. It's exact on Sunday night and full of questions, answers, decisions, and efforts to reconcile differences. Today's color is gold. (happybirthdaytome!)

Saturday: Aquarius Moon


The Moon is void of course from 4:09 am to 9:52 am EDT and moves to Aquarius, our Full Moon sign then. Oppositions and squares in fixed signs Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius indicate strong differences will be prevalent. This Full Moon continues that way tomorrow too, so stubborn patterns and people will be tough to challenge. The positive side is that if you do reach an agreement, decisions or take definitive action, the effect is long lasting. It will not be easy to get out of an agreement or commitment later, so make sure you're confident with what you decide or announce. Aquarius Moon is for finding community and for thinking out of the box.  Today's color is turquoise.

Sunday: Full Moon in Aquarius

Yesterday's forecast applies equally today. Uranus in Aries throws in an element of chance. Anything could happen. Be a bit more open minded if you've closed off options. Be a bit conservative if you're a natural risk taker. Moderation will help during this Full Moon of extremes and agendas.  Balance time with people with some chill down time. Aquarius Moon is full of activity with groups and associations you're part of. Group efforts and events will be busy and may include sudden news or changes.  This is a time when some will conclude long term business of any kind. With Aquarius Full Moon, friends step up to support each other's endeavors.  This Full Moon requires extra effort and a bit of flexibility in many areas if you're to accomplish what you want, including communicating clearly and honestly, getting wise advice in health matters, dealing with anything regarding the elderly, wills or legacies of any kind, and committing to plans for expansion and growth.  Think long term. Today's color is silver. 

                                 Weekly July 27th to August 3rd, 2013

Monday: Leo Moon

This Leo Moon has unusual, opposing forces at work with Saturn and Uranus chiming in at once. The late day or evening aspects, depending on your time zone, occur at 8:14 pm EDT with a trine to rebellious Uranus followed by a square to rule abiding Saturn. Parents and teenagers will power struggle and other similar conflicts also result. Uranus and the Moon are out of control with fiery, bold energy for change, personal statements, breaking the rules, and wild abandon. Be cautious since things may move fast and with force! Saturn and the Moon in fixed signs depict unyielding opinions and strong wills in conflict or trying to work things out. Great effort is called for to find agreement if there's discontent. The tendency today is to do your own thing. There's a risk taking vibe, but be careful about that. Uranus comes on awfully strong. Precautions are a good idea. Enjoy in moderation. The Moon is void of course from 8:37 pm yesterday to 11:37 pm tonight. Venus is also opposing Pluto now. See Tuesday for more abut this. It could influence your days all week. Today's color is yellow.

Tuesday: Venus opposite Pluto

The Moon is in Virgo and Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn this week. Face relationship realities. This may include a deep, in some cases uncomfortable, conversation. If it happened last night, the effects may linger today and more questions and curiosities surface. Pluto asks we dive into the unknown, the mysteries and the past in some cases. That can  mean fears crop up or old wounds resurface, hopefully for more resolution and healing.  The void of course Moon may be on your side if things are surfacing and strong since we can let go more easily and process soulfully and creatively with Venus at work. Find peace with something or someone, not by skimming over a problem, but by going for the root and the answer, gently. It is a social day and evening for gatherings EDT. Today's color is navy blue.

Wednesday: Virgo Moon

The Virgo Moon is in harmony with Venus for good feelings and attitudes toward each other. Friendships and collaborations benefit! We work together well on days like this.  Saturn contributes energy too, and with Scorpio and Virgo tendencies accented, get things done and details worked out.  Concentration, harmony, and helpfulness are some key words. This is a simple forecast for a day when you can streamline. If you're not sure what to do, clean, redecorate, or go over financial plans.  Today's color is pink.

Thursday: Mercury to Leo, Virgo to Libra Moon

Mercury's last move in Cancer is a sextile (favorable) to the Virgo Moon. It's nurturing and can help us give or receive advice or support. Solve a family or home related problem and get those kinds of tasks done too. Contact people who can provide what you need including work you need done at home or something health related. Give criticism constructively and sensitively. Contracts are favored. The Moon is void 10:47 am to 12:09 pm (take an early lunch break?). The hours following are Libra Moon time for mediating and study or information gathering to make your best judgement. The Moon and expansive Jupiter in Leo work together helping with growth and making the right connections. Mercury moves to Leo at 6:46 pm. Networking, celebrating, and performing are favored for the next few weeks. Today's color is blue.

Friday: Libra Moon

Last week the Leo New Moon meant to propel plans and projects, relationships and growth. How are you doing nearly one week later? The first day of August is about partnership, for one. Libra is the sign of couples, duos, and finding balance between two sides. Venus, the planet of love, is active today, square the Moon and Uranus and in harmony with Saturn. Work out an agreement on a serious relationship matter. Commit. Be willing to go to extraordinary lengths if something is worthwhile. Don't be thrown off course or respond to petty things, especially in the relationship realm. Mars is square to Jupiter, and oh the effort that might be needed for growth and new learning! Passion, enthusiasm, and power themes flare with this square. It's one of extremes, both initiative and resistance. It could bring luck & energy with something you've been trying to get momentum for: Leo, in home life, Scorpio in career, Cancer, money and employment, Taurus, home and married life or other partnership. Yet it is not a "piece of cake". There's work to be done and both action on things and willingness to learn are required.  For all signs, put your focus on what you most hope to expand, not only this week, but this year. Sagittarius, keep your plans quiet so they're not thwarted. Aquarius, your career and relationship have equal priority and so much emphasis now. Make sure both are well taken care of. Today's a busy day in the zodiac. Void of course Moon 10:58 pm to 10:57 pm EDT tomorrow. Wear purple.

Saturday: Void of course Moon in Libra

Yesterday's forecast also applies today in every way. Re-read it and add Mercury as today's strongest planet, squaring Mars and meeting Jupiter. Everything Mars/Jupiter related in Friday's forecast gets a chance to solve, resolve, or get bigger and more powerful due to Mercury. Mercury now in Leo is expressive, dynamic, and rules performers, teachers, those who work in media especially as on screen or air talent, and also children and the business surrounding them. Be creative with words and ideas today. Think playfully even in problem solving.  Let rules go a little and expand the limits and see how things change.  Capricorn, work at your dreams from the financial standpoint. Can you work out a plan to make travel or a new business or education happen? Is there a person or place you can get support for your plan? Gemini, Mercury is your ruling planet and dynamic with Jupiter and Mars, your business plans get a spark and a change of routine is refreshing. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, and archer this is your travel year. You must expand your experiences to feel fulfilled and feed your soul for a year until next summer. If the plan is more future than now, start working on a way. You may succeed in international business and education this year too. Tonight's Scorpio Moon moves in at 10:57 pm. Today's color is gold.

Sunday: Moon conjunct Mars in Scorpio

Nearly every planet is at play in the zodiac today. Mars is the force to be reckoned with or to fuel you. In Scorpio, Mars is in one of his strongest zones. It's a passionate influence, and passion can range from great love or energy to destructive anger or envy. If you need to cool it down a bit, take yourself out of the situation and get away-like a big kid time out. Some solitary time, natural surroundings, or spiritual pursuits will be just the right thing for some. If you're drawn into groups and events though, keep your cool, detach from the craziness, be a bit mysterious, and find someone to chill with. It's a good day for personal priorities, focus, and action on important things. Minimize distractions, gossip, and telling yourself stories that may not be true.  Today's color is maroon.

Weekly July 21st to 27th, 2014

Monday: Taurus/Gemini Moon

The Moon starts in Taurus and moves to Gemini at 12:36 pm. Void of course time is 10:12 am to 12:36 and those hours are good for cleaning your desk, reading but not responding to emails and memos quite yet, and taking some down time if needed. The early hours are solid for final decisions as the Moon and Sun form a sextile in Taurus/Cancer at 10:12 am. Gemini Moon marks a multitasking time for the next couple of days. Network and combine friendly meetings, social plans, and business negotiations.  Gemini Moon aligns with Jupiter in Leo for events and festivities. Meet new people. Put names with faces. Respond to invitations with a yes! Today’s color is yellow.

Tuesday: Sun in Leo

Mercury is opposite Pluto today, and with Saturn now direct, serious decisions and conversations take place. Putting something to a rest, finishing tough processes and negotiations, and deciding once and for all can be the result. Face fears and old wounds and maybe this becomes a pivotal day or week.  The Moon is in Gemini for versatile problem solving and ability to adapt.  The Sun moves to Leo at 5:41 pm EDT and the height of summer begins. This is the 2nd of 3 phases of the season, and Leo birthdays begin. Tonight can be festive, full of surprises, and changes of mind or heart.  Wear gold.

Wednesday: Moon trine Mars

The Moon in Gemini is in harmony with Mars just as the warrior planet makes his last moves in Libra. It’s been an extended time for Mars in the sign of justice and partnership, and for many it has not been easy. Reaching consensus, mediating effectively, and finding fair outcomes is favored now. It’s also a good day or evening for social plans. The Moon is void of course from 8:53 pm to 10:59 pm EDT and moves to Cancer then. Today’s color is light blue.

Thursday: Sun conjunct Jupiter in Leo

This is an eventful day in the zodiac as the Sun meets Jupiter and Moon meets Venus. Relationships on the right track seem to benefit most! Engagements and marriages are well timed. This can extend to business partnerships solidifying too. Leo is much in favor and for Aquarius love and commitment is highlighted! Cancer and Capricorn are signs deeply impacted with positive vibes for love and relationship. In other areas of life, Saturn and Mercury are activating resolution. New information around important decisions and situations may come as a surprise. Something that seemed to go by it’s due date may come together unexpectedly. Everything is stirred up and all signs are impacted by today’s chart. Try not to rule anything out. During Cancer Moon, sometimes, the tendency is defensiveness. Know when to play offense or for the team instead. Can you protect your interests while expanding rather than closing doors? Today’s color is orange.

Friday: Cancer Moon, Mars in Scorpio

This day prior to Leo New Moon is set up by Moon trine Saturn and meeting Mercury. Finalizing, decisions, and continuations of this week’s serious matters and important priorities are likely. You may wait until Mars changes signs to make your move or commitment, and the New Moon time is good for change. However, today is still about setting the stage, finding the information and getting all in order.  Communicate clearly, discuss the topics pending or about to require action, and come to agreements.  Leo, you are on the cusp of one of the finest New Moons of the year and it’s in your sign. Make it count. Cancer, this is true for you in employment and money matters. You could use this time to make an investment or change roles at work. Scorpio, a bigger career move and public attention in the next few weeks is yours for the taking.  Libra, it may benefit you to make some new friends, change your social scene or start networking for what would benefit you. Friends can be helpful now. Taurus, a shift at home or with family is sparked at by Leo New Moon. Maybe you’re preparing for an August move or about to find the home you’re hoping for.  Cancer Moon today helps us check in with the heart as we make these decisions.  Today’s color is blue.

Saturday: New Moon in Leo

I've been priming clients for this New Moon for months, and now it's here! A New Moon in a bright, creative sign with no significant planets retrograde for the first time in many months is something to celebrate and most importantly, maximize! The Moon moves to Leo at 10:55 am EDT & begins the lunar cycle, meeting the Sun exactly at 6:42 pm. Write down the things you want to accomplish before New Moon time and take action as soon as tonight! There is no time like the present & Jupiter, the benevolent, magnificent planet team up with the Leo Moon. It gets no better than this! Leo, what a wonderful early (or barely belated) birthday gift you receive from the universe this year! Growth, abundance & wisdom is yours! Leo weddings, businesses, new relationships and families are set to thrive! Aquarius, you enjoy similar benefits from across the zodiac and commitment, marriage, & strong business partnerships in your life thrive for 13 months! Point the compass right in that direction and the universe conspires to help you make it all happen! Libra, supportive friends and mentors appear, Sagittarius, your world opens up so much you may find yourself in another state or country teaching, getting a new degree or certification or doing business by next summer or much before. Your ruling planet in your house of exploration wants to take you places! Cancer and Scorpio are favored in business and employment. Capricorn, you could receive gifts, grants, family legacies or go into profitable business with a partner or family member. These possibilities are just beginning and this New Moon strongly activates, so even if it's a small step or contact you reach out to, do it soon while the Leo Moon is in most powerful mode! Today's color is white.

Sunday: Leo Moon

Uranus and Saturn are throwing signals the New Moon's way. Very different tactics and influences present with each planet. Uranus is retrograde and not in his power, yet a curve ball weakly tossed may confuse things today. Be non reactive rather than cause a stir since a bit of news may turn out to be less important or potent that it initially sounds. Wait that out. Saturn is square the Moon and direct, so finally progress can come. Put effort into a situation that's been stubborn and may relate to health, family-especially elders, or intimacy. Prime for breakthroughs, Saturn is now in a better position for dealing with the important and serious matters of life. That influence may be at work tomorrow too. The Moon is void of course from 8:37 pm EDT to 11:37 pm Monday night. Heads up for a Monday business day that may not be as productive as you hope. Personal matters will be priority. Today's color is purple

Weekly July 14th to July 20th, 2014

 

Monday: Aquarius Moon

Find your supporting players today and gather around a common vision. The Aquarius Moon favors teamwork and collaborating, envisioning what’s ahead and acting on shared goals. Mars and Venus align with the Moon from intelligent and fair Libra and versatile Gemini. Benefit from putting great minds together. Explore alternative approaches and find solutions and answers with an open mind. It could be time to let go of an old paradigm or idea in favor of something you hadn’t even thought of previously! Balance and stability are worth seeking today. It’s a good day or night for mixing friendship, socializing and productive work. The Moon is void of course from 3:23 pm to 10:40 pm EDT and those are good hours to relax with friends or be on a casual, fun date.  The Moon moves to Pisces at 10:40 pm. Today’s color is blue.

Tuesday: Pisces Moon

The Moon is in Pisces in harmony with Mercury in Cancer. Creative, inspired, sensitive, and even solitary are good words to live by today. If you’ve needed personal time or quiet time, see if you can carve that out for yourself.  After the Full Moon, it’s time to restore.  The Moon, Neptune and Pluto all indicate that relaxation and release will recharge your energy and spirit. Take some time off if you can and if not, close the door behind you and get things done without interruptions. Today’s color is green.

Wednesday: Jupiter in Leo

The Moon sails through Pisces. though today is more about being structured and attending to any kind of business or task. Saturn, the Sun and Venus interact with the Moon. Venus forms a square and flexibility with partners may be the best plan. Try not to pressure. Venus in Gemini is flirtatious though, and some relationships may experience trust issues. Try to anticipate how your partner will feel and head off a problem you don’t need.  Water sign energies contribute to sensitivity, mood shifts, and artistic inclinations.  Paint, play, make music, do some yoga or meditation while also getting the job done, whatever it may be. Jupiter makes the big jump to Leo, a highly creative and extroverted place for the planet of prosperity, philosophy and personal growth. Expansion in big, noticeable ways comes for the next year, especially for Leo, and for Aquarius love and commitment, Aries love and creative possibilities, Cancer and Scorpio with employment and career. More about this is future forecasts! Jupiter shifts today at 6:30 am, so it’s on right away! Void Moon is tonight at 8:57 pm and ends at 12:07 am EDT. Today’s color is purple.

Thursday: Aries Moon

Jupiter’s first real move in Leo is a trine to this Aries Moon at 12:07 am EDT. The trine sets us up for surprise news and action around expansion, new business, and doing things up big and bold!  This may come into play with anything for Leo, social or adventurous plans for Aries, and love life and friendships for Aquarius.  Cancer, this can lead to career news that happens very quickly or unexpectedly.  The Aries Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn and Mercury in Gemini, leading to negotiations and unfinished business.A heartfelt approach is called for even in serious interactions. Today’s color is gold.

Friday: Venus in Cancer

Venus changes signs, moving to the sign of house and home at 10:06 am. Reason to nest, improve your living space, or to visit family comes in the next few weeks.  Venus in Cancer is more nurturing for the soul and less outgoing than Venus was in Gemini. If you strayed in a relationship or were thinking about it, the urge is to pull back to long term commitment.  If you were overly busy for a few weeks, the vibe is more about being at home and finding ways to enjoy it. Decorate, buy a few new things, refresh the environment, give attention to the garden and cook meals!  Aries Moon is wild one today, in contrast to Venus in Cancer, the Moon meets Uranus, opposes Mars in Libra and squares the Sun. This cardinal sign madness is about to dissipate and this may truly be one last blast or that may come next week around the 24th. Unproductive, overly aggressive or triggering things unnecessarily can only go on so long.  Avoid the “haters”. Don’t bother with someone who does the same thing again and again that provokes you, makes you sad, or is totally unjust.  Go your own way. Stick with trusted friends. The Moon is void of course from 10:18 pm until 4:43 am EDT  Today’s color is pink.

Saturday: Taurus Moon, Sun square Mars

The Moon moves to Taurus at 4:43 am. Taurus Moon will align with Venus and Mercury in Cancer and that’s a plus for conversing, deciding, and communication generally. It’s a warm day for friendships, love, and family relationships too.  The Sun square to Mars will spark discussion of what’s fair though. Seek more balance and do your fair share at home and with family. Get grounded in home, garden and building projects under this Taurus Moon, a sign of stability. Today’s color is blue.

Sunday: Saturn Direct in Scorpio

Saturn is direct, finally, following a retrograde in Scorpio since March 2nd. Pressure may be alleviated soon in difficult and frustrating matters and mental and physical health issues. Put effort into things you have just about given up on, not just today but in the weeks ahead.Take pleasure in simple things today. Use all your senses. It’s a good day to entertain. Wear brown today.

 

Full Moon in Capricorn July 12, 2014

Full Moon in Capricorn on July 12, 2014 at 7:25 am is one of building and strengthening. If this Capricorn Full Moon was human, he or she would be a constructive thinker and a doer interested in proving her abilities and succeeding. He/she would be of pitta constitution in ayurvedic terms. As a person, this Capricorn Moon might be coming out of a dark or complex time, winning a battle with depression or a health matter, and might be a bit hard on himself even with the future looking bright.

During this Full Moon, it would be natural to finish an important project or to move into the next phases, building on a foundation already set.  In personal, family and long term relationships that have been tumultuous, things are crystalizing one way or the other and as the Moon wanes and Saturn, Capricorn's ruling planet, moves direct on the 20th, some issues will be put to rest once and for all, with final decisions solid and strong.  The cardinal cross in Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra is breaking up this month, and that is good news! Frustrations, even if present now and this weekend, should wane with the Moon, making way for a gorgeous Leo Moon conjunct to Jupiter on the 26th.  Your most persistent problems can take a hike as you kick them out of your life and your mind.  The end of July is even better than your usual New Moon for fresh starts and clearing negative, cloudy, or uncertain energy!

Getting back to Full Moon in Capricorn Saturday, it's flanked by Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries and there are challenges to be once again confronted. You're likely to know what they are because they've been recurring since last October, through the holidays, and during spring. Jupiter is across the zodiac about to leave Cancer, and Cancer/Capricorn relationships in particular may find "just right" growth, not too quickly and not too stalled.  That may apply to other signs as well since those with Cancer and Capricorn rising, Moon and Venus experience this too. 

Capricorn is the sign of the skeletal system, the knees, the teeth and bones. Take extra care. Do not overdo or put strain on old injuries. If aches and pains flare more now, suddenly, this may be a deeper healing time so take it easy. Full Moons do amplify, increase swelling and remind you of places that have been scarred. Retracing injuries from the past is an interesting phenomena that I have personally experienced with a concussion.  Do alleviate stress on the body and avoid situations that cause mental stress which contributes to physical pain. Also, if it's not an emergency, wait it out for a few days while the Moon moves into Aquarius and Pisces because the "swelling" may go down on it's own. 

(Note: In Maine and in Asheville, it's Yoga Fest time, and if you are attending or participating in a similar event like a race, err on the side of taking it easily generally. Full Moons and injuries go together. That is one reason why Ashtanga yogis do not practice during Full Moon and some other yoga philosophies recommend Moon Salutations and more yin practices versus something more strenuous.)

Here's a list of some things favored to act or decide on: building plans, construction, medical advice (treatment such as surgery is better timed away from Full Moon), finalizing a business decision, closing a deal or continuing to negotiate for a better deal, ending a toxic relationship, easing up on too much perfectionism, changing up your exercise plan and including strengthening activities & weight bearing (ease in) and doing easy yoga like legs up the wall.

The main idea is to strengthen the weak spots! Identify the weak links and reinforce! Take something solid and build upon it. 

Weekly July 7th to July 13th, 2014

 

Monday: Scorpio Moon

The Moon and Saturn in Scorpio is a monthly occurrence. Revisiting business and challenges, related health, addictions or compulsive feelings, old injuries, anything related to older relatives or people you're responsible for, and dealing with authority figures is in today's forecast. The process may linger into tomorrow. It can be truly worth facing these challenges since Saturn is moving direct on the 20th and this is a good time to form a plan, go back and get wise advice or additional information to help with a decision. Relationship status changes are in the personal realm too, especially for Gemini, Aquarius, Sagittarius and Leo though all signs may be included. Venus sextile Uranus leads to flirtations and also to news about couples and partners. Announcements may be startling or very happy, but tend to come by surprise.  The Scorpio Moon is harmonious with the Sun, Pluto and Neptune. Creative impulses arise! This may also be good for business plans and investing.  Tonight has some heavy or serious energy. Be intentional. Something you think is funny or exciting may not hit other people the same way. Don't be surprised if there's a grim face or two in the crowd or pressure to perform or finish important tasks asap.  Today's color is black.

Tuesday: Sun square Uranus and trine Saturn

Tuesday is very much a continuation of Monday. The tide is rolling in toward a Saturday Full Moon too. Be deliberate, conscious and conscientious for best and smoothest times. The boss or parents and other people you answer too may be more demanding than usual. The Cancer Sun and Jupiter are dominant forces with this Scorpio Moon. They work together to bring up strong, sentimental, nurturing and maybe also defensive or protective feelings and actions.   We'll go all out to protect what we care about.  One effect of the Sun square to Uranus is developing news about relationships, family changes, and leaving or returning home.  Now that Mercury is direct, decisions that were on hold may be made more readily, contributing to announcements and movements. Progress for one person can be sad or detrimental to another. Mixed feelings will prevail today and tonight.  The Moon is void of course from 6:32 pm to 9:24 pm EDT and then scoots into Sagittarius. Trying to escape obligations and responsibilities may be tempting tonight and tomorrow. Tonight, Saturn says that's not a wise idea since you'll pay later.  Tomorrow, wanderlust will be strong so consider that tonight and form a plan (or wing it since the Moon is in Sag and we don't follow through with plans so well). Today's color is red.

Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon

The Moon and Neptune square in mutable signs, Sagittarius and Pisces. Getting a commitment or agreement made is unlikely. We'll want to go our own way and forgetting or ignoring what's on the calendar is common with these signs involved. It's a good vacation day. Escape the usual routine or surroundings.  Get lost in your own creative or personal work. Take the ferry or ride a horse (for example!). Let go of expectations and try not to nag. It won't get you far today.  The Full Moon is looming so you might be pressured about a deadline. Try to carve out time for that as well as some time to float, wander or fly. No shows might be a problem. Improvisation is called for. Today's color is light blue.

Thursday: Sagittarius Moon

Full Moon warmup is here by now. The Full Moon in Capricorn has some challenging aspects, however, it's a strong Moon for building and strengthening. What can you do to reinforce the weak spots? Line up support for yourself or your plans. It's a business like Full Moon and you want to show tangible results even if they're not completions. Mercury retrograde, and Saturn too, have imposed delays and new information or people stepping in now can lead to better and more expedient process.  Make your best efforts and let someone know if the job can't be completely done but it's in the works and moving at a good pace, finally. The Sagittarius Moon is good for exploring ideas, places and potential plans. Mars in Libra favors truth and justice today. Make a legal agreement or have a conversation about what's fair and fits your philosophy of life. Be true to yourself.  Venus and Mercury both oppose the Moon and I suspect many of us will be facing trust and honesty issues. In relationships, especially Gemini and Sagittarius and secondarily Aquarius, Leo, Libra and Aries have conversations that lead to the core of the matter.  Finalizing decisions is one result.  The Moon is void of course from 8:19 pm to 11:24 pm EDT and then moves to Capricorn, this month's Full Moon sign. Today's color is navy blue.

Friday: Capricorn Moon

The Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces and meets Pluto in a monthly cycle. Combine structure and discipline with out of the box thinking. It's a business day, either personal or work. Deal with personal situations practically and take drama or unproductive emotion out of the mix. Look at a situation and problem solve realistically.  Make effort to start, finish or show significant progress. Doers and dreamers can work well together on a day like this. Team up with someone who has a different style or approach.  Due dates must be honored or explanations should be given. Don't let the weekend pass by without an honest answer or face to face meeting if that applies to you. Pluto brings up deep or past things for another pass. Face it and put it to rest if possible. This is a recurring chance, but during Full Moon a resolution makes sense. Make it a sensible one. It's not really a party Friday night. Stay close to your comfort zones. The Moon is exactly Full early tomorrow morning so consider this Full Moon night. Today's color is green.

Saturday: Capricorn Full Moon square Uranus and Mars

Do what makes you feel most grounded and stable during this Full Moon weekend. People may be confrontational, which is not always bad but can lead to arguments or worse.  Use your instincts about what to bring up or leave alone.  If in doubt, maybe let this weekend pass by without aggravating any person or situation. It's kind of a bees nest so decide if you can deal without getting stung or swarmed.  Think back to Christmas/New Years and even to the 4th of July and see how things from those times are at work now. Use good judgement. Mars insists we play fair. Uranus is the catalyst for new news, some of which will produce anxiety or reactions.  Jupiter is across the zodiac with a final impact in Cancer for growth and healing, particularly for Cancer and in families. But it's not a piece of cake. It's a good day to bake a cake though! And it's a great day for physical exercise yet we must not overdo! This is the Full Moon of teeth and bones. Protect them. Know your limits. Do business fairly. The Moon is briefly void of course from 9:56 to 11:07 pm EDT. Today's color is white.

Sunday: Aquarius Moon

The Moon is in Aquarius. The vision and stability this Moon sign provides is positive for moving from the Full Moon phase, slowly. A sense of community is important today and tomorrow. Mercury moves back to Cancer where the retrograde phase in June started. Mercury is direct and revising, changing, cleaning up, and clearing up confusion is in the 4cast all week long. Getting things back on course and seeing progress is the goal. Venus and Mars align happily in Gemini and Libra. This is a social, extroverted influence. Love and friendship are both favored. Gemini, Libra, Aries, Sagittarius, Aquarius and Leo may feel the effects most, but it's good generally for improving and enjoying the people around you! Today's color is turquoise.

Monday: Leo Moon

This Leo Moon is extra amped up by Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries. An adventurous attitude and willingness to let go and have fun will be an asset. Get in the mix and be open to people. Enthusiasm rules the day! You may see some sour faces as the Moon and Saturn square, however today is not worth losing to Saturn retrograde's heavy pull since Saturn moves direct in 3 weeks and until then some things just will not budge very much.  Instead of trying to move a mountain, climb one! Seek victories through collaborations, networking, and showing your best side, skills and talents. You can choose to sit this one out because of a looming problem, but you may miss a great day if you go that route.  Today is meant for surprises and friendliness. Art projects & improv are good plans too. Today's color is orange.

Tuesday: Mercury Direct

The Moon in Leo is void of course from 6:00 am EDT to 5:24 pm. Mercury, in harmony with the Moon, stations direct at 8:50 am in Gemini. This is a true transitional day as the Moon changes signs and Mercury re-routes (at least from our earthly perspective). Wait something out today. Take your time and maybe even find a few hours off to wander, meditate, nap, or enjoy a favorite and calming pastime. Keep business simple. Try not to be taken aback by announcements of changes and don't assume they will even take hold, yet. Giving it a few days before feeling like Mercury is direct and minds are re-set is a good idea.  Fun is recommended today! Virgo Moon arrives at 5:24 pm EDT and work may find it's way into the evening. That includes cleaning the house or helping out a friend or family member who needs you. It's a good night to get reorganized.  Today's color is brown.

Wednesday: Virgo Moon

The Moon aligns with the Cancer Sun and with Pluto in Capricorn. These are sensible and nurturing influences. Take care of priorities and people who mean the most to you. Helping out a neighbor or friend is favored by Virgo Moon. The Moon opposite Neptune has a versatile, slightly spacey influence. This is good for daydreaming and can lead to ideas and plans to be pursued in the future. Give attention to detail and the finer intricacies of your art, wording or science as the Moon and Venus in Gemini square. An element of perfectionism is present and in some cases may lead to critique or criticism. Assume every detail will be noticed.  Be creative with constructing, repairing, and designing! Neptune has a colorful, offbeat influence on Virgo Moon's sense of order and clean lines. Blend structure with versatility by taking the usual tried and true and adding or recreating for a new look or result.  Today is a good day for experimenting. Wear indigo blue.

Thursday: Virgo Moon

The Moon harmonizes with Saturn and squares Mercury. Choose all wording carefully, in writing and in conversation or meetings. You may be rewriting, revising or editing work done in June now that Mercury is direct.  Make sure you're understood clearly. Set things up for final resolution in late July or August. That may include real estate or family business for Leo and something else financial for Aries or Libra. Scorpio, a big breakthrough may be coming in a very stubborn area of your life.  Getting the support people or working parts in order is a good idea this week. Scorpio, do some networking and get leads from friends today. Even vacationers may find reasons to do business, make concerted efforts in important areas, and have messages and news to respond to before the U.S. holiday weekend. A flexible approach and timetable is best. Keep your mind open. Things shift and solidify as July goes on. The pre-game is now.  Today's color is yellow.

Friday: Libra Moon

The Moon is void of course from 12:21 am to 5:43 am EDT and then in Libra, sign of balance and partnership. Save decisions until the Moon is solidly in Libra versus those v.o.c. hours. The Cancer Sun opposes Pluto today. Interesting, sometimes past or deeply forgotten, things come up when Pluto is at work. Old patterns, fears or the revelation of hidden information is in the forecast today. You may express what you suppressed in the past. This can make for surprise announcements. Try to stay realistic and don't expect all results or responses at once. Some situations (or people) will be dramatic in nature.  Airing emotional things out is generally necessary at some point, but initially it may cause friction or mixed responses. Try to be sensitive as the Sun is in a sensitive and sometimes defensive sign, Cancer. Today's color is white.

Saturday: Libra Moon conjunct Mars

Mars will be in Libra only until July 25th, but it's been a long haul including weeks of retrograde and retracing. The sign of partnership and legal matters, Libra, has stirred up those areas and for a while put action and decisions on hold. This is one of those days when Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, Mars, the Moon and Sun hit 4 points in a cross pattern and this can put you at odds with someone, force a revisiting of unfinished business and bring up sensitive subjects.  There's volatile energy in the air so breathe and think before reacting and avoid short tempered people. Maintain control of your own impulses and responses to people. On the plus side, the Moon and Venus are social and oriented to gatherings including new friends and people you've not yet met. Today's color is lavender.

Sunday: Scorpio Moon

Void of course Moon is from 11:31 am to 3:33 pm EDT. The Moon moves to Scorpio then. The Libra Moon harmonizes with Mercury in Gemini continuing the social vibe and also giving us the urge to purchase and negotiate deals. That's best done outside the void of course hours.  The Moon also squares Jupiter with a bit if any hangover from conflicts yesterday though Jupiter can help those resolve at least temporarily, if you're willing. Scorpio Moon after 3:33 pm leads more of us to quiet time to take care of whatever personal business or errands we let go over the holiday weekend.  Tonight is is bit more introverted and can help us get re-focused, organized or spend time with closest companions.  Wear maroon today.

June 23rd to 29th, 2014

Monday: Venus in Gemini

The Moon is in Taurus opposing Saturn and Venus moves to Gemini.  Moon across from Saturn retrograde is sometimes an unproductive struggle with no result or agreement, however as Saturn gets closer to making an about face in Scorpio next month, the negotiations are worth putting effort into. In the bigger, important matters of life, results will ripen as the summer goes on. You can't pick the fruit before it's ready. This is a time of maturation and if you have this opposition in effect in your life you probably know it. A bit more patience is called for. Venus moves to Gemini today at 8:33 am and plays the flirt for a couple of weeks. What's attracting yoru attention might be a potential date (Aquarius, Leo, Gemini), or it could be a sexy new ride (Aries) or a more suitable place to live (Pisces). Just be deliberate and ask all the right questions if this could lead to a big expense or agreement you can't change your mind about. Mercury is retrograde until July 1st and the 2nd is the first full day Mercury is stationed direct.  Maybe these things can wait? The date is fine though if you just keep it simple and non committal. Venus in Gemini is fun for dating and getting to know people or reconnecting with old friends.  Mercury is retrograde in the same sign and can contribute to a scattered or fickly feeling now. The Moon is void of course at 9:49 pm EDT until morning.  Today's color is pink.

Tuesday: Moon conjunct Venus in Gemini
