August 11th to 17th, 2016
Saturn is direct in Sagittarius on the 13th, Saturday at 5:50 am EDT. With both Saturn and Mars in fire sign Sagittarius, we're prompted to move on what's pending. Tune into what you feel more decisive about, but do not be pushed by outside influences. Exert your own freedom and rights to make the best decisions for yourself, for your highest good.
Full Moon is August 18th, next Thursday. I'll be leading Full Moon Yoga at beautiful Sunflower Farm, home of the Nigerian dwarf goats. They produce cheese and goat milk sweets which are available for purchase ($7). You can pet and play with the goats after yoga. It's been a highlight of summer and I really hope you can come if you live locally, near Portland, Maine. The farm is about 30 minutes outside Portland in Cumberland Center, Maine. RoZoYo® yoga themes include ankles, stability, and community, friendship, mutual support and vision. Donate amount of your choice ($$) for yoga and the farm. This will be a fun, late summer practice as the Full Moon rises. 5:30 pm start.
This is a new Thursday-Wednesday forecast format I'm trying out. You'll get more for your sign plus the colors and important aspects with each Moon sign, as usual. Give me a few weeks to play with this and decide for sure.

Monday: Capricorn Moon. Productivity. Be realistic. Void of course 10:45 pm EDT to Tuesday 7:52 am EDT. Brown is today's color.
Tuesday: Aquarius Moon begins 7:52 am EDT. Full Moon warmup begins. Aim for resolution and finishing touches. Sun and Uranus provide excitement and progressive shifts. Yellow is today's color.
Wednesday: Aquarius Moon, Venus trine Pluto in Virgo/Capricorn. Flexible thinking, rapid developments. Stable changes. Blue is today's color.
Aries: Ingrained habits and thought patterns could hold you back from a new experience. Venus and Saturn create tension around the path you’re strongly considering. One big concern is how your relationships and familiar routines will change. The Sun and Uranus say it’s time to play ball, ready or not, by the middle of next week.
Taurus: Keeping personal relationships and business arrangements separate looks like a good plan. Venus and Neptune form a misleading opposition involving lovers or friends. Moon, Mars and Saturn point out problems regarding shared property, money and resources. With wise advice and information, act in your own best interests this week.
Gemini: Saturn’s return to forward motion has a positive influence on a relationship or reconstruction project. Improving your home environment, physical or emotional, and collaborative decision making proves easier from Saturday on. Act on creating a happy, healthy living arrangement, either on your own or with the one you love.
Cancer: It looks like you have news to share or an important conversation pending. You can wait a bit and experiment with changes before making your announcement to the world. However, if holding things in is affecting your appetite, sleep or ability to concentrate, it’s time to let the cat out of the bag. Make schedule changes before Mercury retrograde moves in late this month.
Leo: The Sun and Uranus light up a big, bright opportunity: a unique experience in life or in love. For sure, this is like nothing you’ve anticipated or engaged in so creatively. Follow up may require that you act spontaneously and shatter an old paradigm. Use your wits and resourcefulness with money matters, regardless of which route you take.
Virgo: The good sense of Mercury and balance of Venus are with you, bridging the gap between a goal and a promise you’re being held to. Your word may come into question or it’s you that’s been misled. Family and relationship dynamics are not to be underestimated. Your trend is toward a strong new beginning, and change is in the offing even if you or someone else resists.
Libra: Though decisions and actions can increase happiness, feel free to take a little bit more time. Rather than agonize over the pros and cons, envision the best case scenario and repeat an affirmation of success. Saturn and Mars will give you the final push when it’s time. There’s a year of tremendous growth directly ahead.
Scorpio: There’s a good chance you’re headed for a career, family or home related decision that requires clear thought. Saturn and Mars bring money into the forefront. Structure an agreement sensibly. Hear your own voice amidst all the advice and distraction around you. Above all, do not romanticize an alluring or unrealistic person whose actions could interfere with your goals.
Sagittarius: Planets set you up for a bold move. However, this is one of those times when you’ll have to negotiate the best situation. Venus and Mercury spotlight you as a great candidate for a job or role you want, though the terms require effort. From now through September, look for that ‘good enough’ decision making time.
Capricorn: With Saturn now direct, sharpen your focus and feel more clear. This weekend, clear any distractions and put together a road map for an upcoming adventure. Know that your best timing is still to come. Mars will energize your sign for 6 full weeks this fall, for the first time in two years. October is the definitive time for your next big move.
Aquarius: The Sun and Uranus have an exciting surprise planned, and it may seem out of the blue or unlikely at first. Connected to your marriage, significant other or business partner, you’ll be announcing or receiving interesting news. If you’re in a long term relationship, you’re in this together. In the midst of fun and spontaneity, keep money matters in check.
Pisces: For an entire year Jupiter’s been devoted to bringing you the best in partnerships of any kind. The 13th and final month of Jupiter’s beautiful influence on your collaborations and love life is in effect. Simultaneously, Mars and Saturn amp up career prospects. If you’re contemplating partnering for profit or personal happiness, this is some of the best timing ever.
