Lunar eclipse in Capricorn surfs us through the rest of the month! Tuesday, July 17th 5:38 pm EDT.
Sunday: Sagittarius Moon void of course starts us off. The Moon has no major aspects with planets. The Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto and the Full Moon will meet Pluto on Tuesday. Pluto relates to the mysterious, secretive, hidden or repressed aspects of ourselves or of situations. This eclipse is likely to bring many things up for resolving or facing. Capricorn Moon moves in at 7:05 pm EDT. Black is today's color.
Monday: The nearly Full Moon in Capricorn aligns with Uranus in Taurus today. It could be a wild ride with some unforeseen development. Remember, the unexpected is not always a bad thing. Be ready for a change in system, organization or plan. Today's color is Green.
Tuesday: Lunar eclipse with this Full Moon in Capricorn at 5:38 pm EDT. Eclipses powerfully intensify and magnify, with effects extending for 6 months to one year. Events of this eclipse time hold great power and longevity. An eclipse accelerates what was set to occur. You may have to move into action or decide something much more quickly or differently than anticipated. In some cases, turns of events will feel like fate or like something you never could have foreseen or planned for. Love, business, fears and repressed feelings or memories, and the approaches you will now need to take are all parts of the eclipse outlook. Void Moon 5:38 pm EDT on. Take the night carefully and slowly. White is today's color.
Wednesday: Venus opposes Saturn overnight. In the midst of this eclipse, these planets indicate relationship decisions and realities that need to be faced or confronted. This could be great, like an engagement or difficult like a parting. There will be good reason to act and not wait, even with Mercury retrograde. Still, check to see you're not acting on pure impulse. You may be pushed to do something you thought could wait or that you fear. The Moon opposes retrograde Mercury. Decision making may feel uncertain, yet necessary. Talk real terms. Get anything in writing that should be. Protect your interests and also those you care about. Do honest business. Moon squares Uranus for vibrations that began earlier this week. Problem solving and resolutions are needed. Put the effort in. There's really no other good choice. Aquarius Moon 5:19 am EDT through all of the day and evening. Today's color is Blue.
Thursday: Aquarius Moon opposite Mars overnight 1:50 am EDT to be precise. This opposition is in fixed signs indicating persistence or stubbornness. Moon in Aquarius has vision and inspiration which leads to original thinking. Mars in Leo is courageous and proud. Leaders may feel confident and forge ahead or rally others (hopefully with the right intentions. This could go either way depending on a leaders' mindset.) Moon and Jupiter align in fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius at 11:53 am EDT and then it's void Moon time. The Moon/Jupiter trine is open minded and expansion oriented. Educational or travel plans or acceptances may come through. If you're applying to something or committing to a program or trip, take Mercury retro into consideration and double check and edit or reread everything of note. Venus aligns with Neptune today in the water signs for sentimentality, romance, healing, nurturing and reconciliations. Today's color is Purple.
Friday: Aquarius Moon void of course from 11:53 am EDT on Thursday until 5:19 pm EDT today. It's a long void time, a transitional, sometimes foggy or unclear period, and major decisions or spending that can wait should be on the back burner for now. Relax, clean, draw or write for pleasure, allow your mind to open and be free of problems, perhaps do some meditation or even nap. Tasks should feel routine and not complex. If you hit stumbling blocks, step back for now. Mercury retrogrades back into Cancer, retracing that threshold crossed on June 26th. Notice if business from then is coming back around. Approach with ease and curiosity rather than pressure. Family reconnections or business may be coming up in the days just ahead. Pisces Moon 5:19 pm EDT on, for a take it easy evening. Today's color is Light Green.
Saturday: Pisces Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus. Emotions may be up and down, more than usual. Creative bursts and/or awakening of feelings or self expression are likely today. Wear Blue.
Mind Your Business Easy Does It Review with care Call a long lost friend Use discretion with words Revisit a meaningful place Yearning for simple or past times is natural now
As the retrograde begins Sunday evening, this is your refresher. Many of the words beginning with 'Re' become relevant (that's not one of the re words though!). Reconsider, recall, replenish, reconnect. When in doubt, wait it out.
Sunday: Mercury retrograde begins at 7:14 pm in Leo, and will eventually move back into Cancer retracing events of the past two weeks. Virgo Moon connects with 5 planets. Personal and professional business needs attention. In Virgo form, stay very grounded and realistic with expectations and solutions. Be wary of anything seeming too 'ideal' or frivolous. Void Moon 12:50 pm so best decisions are timed for morning/before 12:50 pm EDT. Today's color is Navy Blue.
Monday: Delays are likely now, unless there's been a long delay lately. If that's been case, action may re-start on something of note such as building or getting back to a dormant project. Creativity can peak with Mercury retrograde. Maybe you will go deep into your process and/or reconnect with your right brain, the free and artistic side. At 2:07 am EDT, the Moon cruised to Libra. Mercury meets Mars and Venus aligns with Uranus. Libra Moon is in harmony with Mars and Mercury which can help significantly. Libra Moon wants peace while Mercury and Mars can stir up trouble or controversy. Today is an especially bad day to engage in anything that could lead to an argument or fight. Venus and Uranus together hold surprises related to family and relationship. Practice being objective and seeing personal situations in perspective. Wear Pink, a color for healing, romance, and a color of the heart.
Tuesday: Can you believe it's one week already since the solar eclipse New Moon? Now is the halfway point to our next eclipse. Developments are likely, yet cannot be forced. After an eclipse, more than usual, we see things take their own course, often not the one we planned. Squares in the zodiac and the Sun opposite Saturn all indicate a day of challenge, trials and/or needing to openly take responsibility and own up. Justice is a theme and a key to this Libra Moon day. Moon void from 3:36 pm to 5:29 am EDT on Wednesday. Today's color is Silver.
Wednesday: Scorpio Moon begins 5:29 am EDT and goes on to square Mars and Mercury, oppose Uranus and align with Venus. Note that those are the 4 planets of Monday's forecast and the pattern continues to be relevant. There's strong energy around personal and relationship matters. Mercury is retrograde and it's a tough time for a debate. The Moon and Venus do offer opportunities for softening and forgiveness, but we may have to reach far inward to find the courage to surrender and let ego go. If you're being stubborn and unyielding, is that actually serving you or could it be holding you back? If life is peachy, romance and passion are in the air tonight. Wear Indigo, and follow your intuition above all else. to be continued... Thursday:
Sunday: Gemini Moon opposite Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius. Ideas and plans requiring support and expansion are highlighted. This opposition may clarify reasons to scale back down or at least not to go overboard. There may be obstacles when traveling or the car may suddenly need repair or require an output of money. Today's color is Light Blue.
Monday: Gemini Moon squares Neptune, meets Venus and is then void for a few hours starting at 5:48 pm EDT. Overall it's an outgoing, potentially romantic or friendly day. Writing and self expression may be inspired. Dualities may be apparent. Do not be fooled by a sweet talker. The Moon is void, waiting for the shift, from 5:48 to 9:24 pm EDT and these hours are for relaxing and enjoying each others' company, primarily. They are not ideal for big spending or decisions. Cancer Moon moves in, and New Moon comes with a solar eclipse tomorrow. Also, Mars moves to Leo at 7:19 pm EDT. Mercury and Mars both are now in the Lion's sign for courage, heart, and big events and performances. Today's color is Pink.
Tuesday: Solar eclipse in Cancer. There's plenty of positivity with this New Moon. Consider all opportunities and options. Notice if you are being handed a gift and do not be too proud or stubborn to says yes. Uranus aligns with the Moon creating surprising turns of events, and family support or new could be one of those effects. Our roots may be disturbed this month with two eclipses in signs of family, roots, home, water and earth. It may be time to move to more fertile ground and to create the right conditions for continued personal or professional growth. Keep family relationships and dynamics in mind as you move through this first eclipse. Moon and Sun meet at 3:16 pm, eclipse time, putting our souls and forms in synchronicity. Be aware of your body as your vehicle and your tangible form for soul work and bringing your unique gifts and offerings to the world. Drink plenty of water and bathe in it too. Stay close to the earth and waters this week. Wear White today.
Mercury retrograde is July 7th to 31st in Leo and Cancer. What would you like to initiate or structure before that time...the sooner the better as this is the last "good" week for those Mercury influenced decisions and actions. Mercury moves into Leo on Wednesday of this week.
Waning Moon all week long.
Sunday: Pisces Moon. Venus opposes Jupiter, relating to abundance, expansion and heart opening as well as to learning, travel and communications. There's likely some sorting to be done and maybe some adjustments in terms of magnitude such as a scaling down or back. The Moon squares both planets indicating effort required. Moon and Neptune retrograde meet and it's doubly important not to be too frivolous or too trusting of anyone who hasn't earned it. Neptune will square Venus overnight and romantic relationships may be tricky or deceiving too. Notice dualities and trust instincts over words. Today's color is Pink.
Monday: Pisces Moon aligns with Uranus, Mars and Mercury. That's kind of a wacky combination or planets aligning with a sensitive Pisces Moon. Protect your boundaries and hold them strong if you're pressured or unjustly judged or experience something like backhanded praise or passive aggressive behavior. Creativity could burst forth today. Void Moon 7:10 pm to 10:38 pm EDT. Aries Moon follows. Orange is today's color.
Tuesday: Aries Moon squares the Sun. It's a day of sorting, weeding, and letting go. Perhaps you also feel good about works in progress. We may feel very independent and in our own grooves today. Wear Red.
Wednesday: Mercury shifts to Leo and prepares for an upcoming retrograde that will start in Leo and retrace degrees of Cancer. Our summer signs and times also include eclipses in July. July is characterized by the shaking and stirring eclipses bring. More on that coming up soon. (Astrology for Summer Eclipse is this Saturday 10:30 am at Maine Yogafest & if you want to come to learn more & prepare, there's still space! The physical yoga will be on the gentle side.) Mercury is outgoing, showy and magnificent in Leo, suiting performers, politicians, teachers, and kids! The Moon goes through paces with Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Pluto today. Socially and for events, the day looks favorable. For hard decisions, it may be a mixed bag. Wear Yellow.
Thursday: Aries Moon void 3:51 am to 9:32 am EDT, then Moon in Taurus. From the action and creativity of fire to the structure and sensuality of earth. If you've been feeling ungrounded or moving too fast this could be a welcome turn. Uranus is dynamic and unpredictable and meets the Moon while also in harmony with the Sun in Cancer. Sun and Moon are in harmony too. Cancer and Taurus you may really notice the effect in terms of change from outside or within yourself. Uranus gets us out of the comfort zone, generally. This could be an opportunity, incoming news, or some issue you'll have to work out or around. Today's color is a very rich shade of Green, maybe a blue green is best!
Friday: Taurus Moon in harmony with Saturn for building and constructiveness and with Neptune for romance and sensuality as well as imagination and magic. Todays' color is Blue.
Saturday: Void Moon in Taurus from 2:38 pm to 5:09 pm EDT. Avoid major purchases or commitment during those hours. The early hours may be constructive and productive with the Moon and Mars aligned. Gemini Moon in harmony with Mercury in Leo for a party night tonight. Wear Gold.

Sunday: Full Moon is here, exact on Monday morning 4:31 am EDT. Father's Day in the USA. Celebrate all those loving and responsible Dads out there! Mercury and Neptune are planetary players on this Sagittarius Moon day. All is very changeable right now, and you may experience unreliability or lack of honesty. I hope that's not your experience this weekend. But be aware that misleading information or people could affect what's happening. Jupiter and Neptune are square to each other and people or plans may be unrealistic. Sort out what's not worth investing energy in. Today's color is White.
Monday: Full Moon in Sagittarius 4:31 am EDT, immediately followed by void of course time until 12:13 pm. This Full Moon is about letting go, breaking free, thinking for oneself, and mustering up your courage. Capricorn Moon 12:13 pm on, trine to Uranus in Taurus tonight. Keep your feet on steady ground and move step by step, not rushing. Form a new plan or revise an existing one. Ground in realities. Today's color is Green.
Tuesday: Capricorn Moon with active Mercury, Saturn, Mars and Neptune. There may be a throwback to the weekend and some resolution to be found around interactions or events that arose. This appears to be a confronting and problem solving time. Mercury and Mars meet and arguments or deeply held emotions are stirred up. Today's color is Black.
Wednesday: From 7:19 am to 10:01 pm EDT the Moon is in the transition time we know as void of course Moon. This is not considered a favorable time for decisions, important conversations or meetings or spending large amounts of money. The sky is full of oppositions which could make for a very challenging time. We may notice defiance and conflict with strong oppositions including the Moon and Mars and Mercury and Pluto. Internal and external, we'll need to reconcile or live with the opposites in a very obvious way today. Aquarius Moon takes over as the void Moon gives way. Wear Blue.
Thursday: Aquarius Moon with only one aspect, so this may feel like a clearing or more simplicity. The Moon is in a sign of logic and vision. Uranus in Taurus squares the Moon. Think alternatively and explore alternatives. Move out of old patterns and habits, in some cases because you must. Today's color is Turquoise.
Friday: Aquarius Moon, void for 24 hours starting at 10:02 am. Do less while opening the mind to options. Meditate, attune to intuition, and feel potential optimism as the Moon aligns with Venus and Jupiter. It might bring on a more social mood and favors occasions and events. The Sun changes signs and Cancer rules the weeks ahead from 11:54 am EDT on. Neptune begins a retrograde in Pisces. Today's color is White.
Saturday: Pisces Moon begins 10:01 am. Minds may feel foggy or priorities scattered as the day starts. Moon aligns with the Sun and Uranus. Water sign Sun and Moon put us in the zone of feeling our feelings. Allow for your emotions. Sit with something you care about. Take care of the earth and garden, pets and people. Today's color is Light Green.

Gemini time in full swing now! Here's your astrology & colors.
Sunday: The Moon waxes all week, moving toward a Full moon on the 17th. We're on an upswing with lots of air and fire energy for fuel. Virgo Moon today is harmonious with 3 planets. The Sun squares Neptune and squares point out where some reconciling could be done or where effort is needed. If something is undefined you might work at clarifying it today. Notice what others or your self are noncommittal or not quite truthful about. What topics or questions are being avoided in terms of direct communication? Today's color is Blue.
Monday: Virgo to Libra Moon, void of course 8:01 am to 8:29 pm when the shift occurs. This is kind of a long void Moon for Monday routines and priorities. Be very careful with details as they may be skimmed over or unclear. The Sun is opposite Jupiter in Gemini/Sagittarius. Things may be exaggerated or come across as unrealistic. Try not to waste energy or be in denial about what's real. It may be hard to get some quiet time or settle nerves. Jupiter, by the way, is retrograde so past patterns may resurface. Clarify your own beliefs. Tonight could be a decent date night. Today's color is Lavender.
Tuesday: Libra Moon aligns with Venus, harmonious for lovers and business partners. The Moon squares Mercury in Cancer so feelings must be sorted through. Keep a sensible approach, and remember not to take matters or words too personally. Check your facts. Today's color is Pink.
Wednesday: Libra Moon void at 11:15 am EDT until 12:02 am EDT Thursday. Today is best suited to routine and not so well for big decisions from 11:15 am on. There are a variety of aspects between the Moon and planets. Know your priorities and work them gently. Less is more in terms of talk, major decisions, and spending. Use intuition and observe. Today's color is Indigo.
Thursday: Scorpio Moon opposite Uranus. Temptations may be strong. Passionate feelings show themselves. Any balance or calm may be disrupted or stubbornness may show itself strongly and in contrasting ways. Some quiet time may be helpful. Stay centered. Today's color is Maroon or any dark red.
Friday: Scorpio Moon with 4 aspects to planets and Mars with a trine to Neptune and an opposition with Saturn. Today appears to be full of agendas and dominant or controlling attitudes and actions. Try to take it easy, to mellow highly charged situations out. Wear Black.
Saturday: Sagittarius Moon from 5:03 am EDT through Full Moon on Monday morning. Full Moon vibes expand and radiate through the weekend. It may be a party or adventure weekend. Today, the Moon opposes Venus and people may want more freedom or space in relationships. Or new relationships may feel exciting. But there's likely to be lack of commitment. Spontaneity is more to be expected. Some closures and completions may be difficult to achieve since not all players play their parts. Slow down a little as people may be rushing or not grounded. Awareness and intuition are called for. Today's color is Purple.

Astrological shifts with this week's New Moon, and sign changes for both Mercury and Venus!
Sunday: The Moon moves to Gemini at 7:48 am EDT. Toss around new ideas and brainstorm, write down thoughts, verses and potential plans on this day before New Moon. New Moon is 6:02 am EDT on Monday and so, by sunrise, you could begin something new. Changes of plans are likely this week as priorities also shift. The mind may fluctuate significantly today and tomorrow. Venus aligns with Pluto today for relationship reality checks. This is more about what you inherently feel and know within yourself than it is about someone else's actions or behaviors. What do your instincts tell you? Today's color is Yellow.
Monday: Gemini New Moon 6:02 am EDT. Neptune squares the Moon and Jupiter opposes, all in the mutable signs. Change is in the air, yet there are obstacles to overcome, hurdles to jump, and leaps of faith required. Patience if things don't move as fast or smoothly as planned. It's a process. Today's color is White.
Tuesday: Void Moon 11:42 am to 12:17 pm EDT, in transition between Gemini and Cancer. Mercury moves to Cancer at 4:05 pm, but first a direct meeting with the Moon in Gemini at 11:42. This connection is like an important conversation you have before jumping into something new. Plans will be put in place and initiative taken. Cancer Moon moves us from the intellectual to the emotional realm. It also creates the conditions for planting and fishing, literally and metaphorically as well. Focus on family and abundance as well as self care. Today's color is Silver.
Wednesday: Cancer Moon makes connections with Mars in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Capricorn. Water element, our emotions, dominate the day. Mars is uncomfortable in Cancer as Mars is fire and yang while Cancer is water and yin. Saturn in Capricorn is retrograde and all earth, realities and business like. Neptune in Pisces is quite the opposite, dreamy, imaginative and floating. So our interactions today may be challenging as others may be in a very different mode. This can create frustration or one running from what the other's agenda is. Creatively, this may be a dynamic day if you're without pressure to perform or produce and it 'just happens'. Today's color is Blue.
Thursday: Cancer to Leo Moon. The earliest hours include a Moon/Pluto opposition and Moon and Venus in harmony. Internal waters may stir then calm. Relationships, intimacy, and personal feelings set up an introverted beginning to the day. From 10:10 to 3:16 pm EDT the Moon will be void of course, and this time is best for routine or simplicity. Once Leo Moon arrives, fixed sign energy includes a square with Uranus. Stubborn personalities or strong feelings amplify. The evening could be party time or in some cases full of stumbling blocks including ego driven interactions. Today's color is Orange.
Friday: Mercury aligns with Uranus throwing in variable or blocks to what was 'supposed to happen'. Adjustments are necessary and some may be big and/or unplanned. News may have some people stunned and/or riled up. Leo Moon aligns with the Sun in Gemini for social gatherings, friendly meetings, and excitement. This may also help with optimism and resilience in the face of unexpected news or changes. Today's color is Gold.
Saturday: Leo Moon for the day, Virgo Moon for evening. Adjust for your time zone as the shift occurs with a short void Moon 5:23 to 5:45 pm EDT. Leo Moon harmony with Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius and square to Venus in Taurus. Performers, travelers, and lovers feel the fire sign passion. Leo Moon and Venus in Taurus make for dynamic partnerships where significantly different approaches, strengths and talents combine. Later, Moon to Virgo 5:45 pm and also Venus to Gemini at 9:37 pm EDT. Venus in Gemini instigates flirtations and our social nature. Today's color is Purple.
Sunday: At 2:08 am EDT the waning Moon moves into Pisces and aligns with both Uranus and Mars today. The Moon and Sun form a square. Emotions and logic may not sync up and decision making may not be easy or smooth. If you have important action to take, wait until you feel emotionally balanced. This appears to be a changeable day, with minds, plans and people not necessarily feeling reliable and/or stable. Creative channels may be open and a good source of stress relief. Today's color is Light Green.
Monday: Pisces Moon for Memorial Day holiday, with 5 planetary aspects. Neptune and Venus connect with the Moon for romance and sentiment or nostalgia while Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury throw in business-like, responsibility oriented influences. Today may be a little of this, a little of that. Anything goes. Put focus where you feel most strongly. Today's color is Light Blue.
Tuesday: Pisces Moon void from 12:21 am to 2:32 pm EDT. This may not be the 'best' day for getting back to business. Vacation brain is more likely. Aries Moon from 2:32 pm on is good for weeding the garden or getting rid of things you don't use anymore. Refresh things. Today's color is Red.
Wednesday: Aries Moon aligns with Gemini Sun for socializing and sharing new ideas and inspired thoughts or plans. Mars in Cancer squares the Moon and could give a passive aggressive feel to some situations. For example, see if you notice you or others brooding rather than actively problem solving. Mercury in Gemini squares Neptune and effort is required to get past creative blocks or idealistic/unrealistic ideas. Today's color is Yellow.
Thursday: Aries Moon time is most productive, at least for meetings and decisive actions, before 11:08 am EDT. Jupiter adds an optimistic trine to the Moon, both in fire signs. Though the day moves into a murky zone where Pluto has squared the Moon from Capricorn bringing up fears or perceived obstacles or competition. Venus aligns with Neptune and romantic relationships may thrive. However an opposition between Mercury and Jupiter may confuse or conflict communication and major decisions. There may just be too much going on today and focus or confidence could suffer as a result. Wear Pink.
Friday: At 12:43 am EDT the Moon moves to Taurus. Uranus and the Moon meet in Taurus every month which can create changes and unanticipated changes which are not always easy to adjust to. Venus in Taurus aligns with Saturn in Capricorn helping us focus on relationship and decisions or responsibilities shared or co-owned. This may assist in realistic and sensible decisions and actions. Today's color is Green.
Saturday: Taurus Moon aligns with Neptune, Saturn and Pluto while also meeting Venus. We are closing in on New Moon June 3rd. A continuation and perhaps more clarity around this week's events is today's mission and vibe. The Moon meets Venus encouraging commitment and strong relationships, loyalty, and favoring marriage or other major life events. Void Moon begins 6:53 pm EDT for the night. Today's color is Blue.
Sunday: The Moon is still essentially Full, having peaked at 5:11 pm EDT on Saturday. Sagittarius Moon has 3 quincunx aspects and no others. Though I don't often write about this 150 degree angle, with 3 and a Full Moon, you may experience confusion or misunderstandings. Question anything that feels not quite honest or right. Today's color is Purple.
Monday: Sagittarius Moon void of course 1:05 pm to (Tuesday) 3:56 am EDT. The Moon squares Neptune. Continue to question. Acknowledge your creative vision. Moon meets Jupiter in a burst of truth, knowledge and hopefully inspiration at 1:05 pm. That sets up the rest of the day. Today's color is Blue.
Tuesday: Capricorn Moon 3:56 am EDT. The Sun moves to Gemini 3 minutes later, for the 3rd phase of spring that lasts until the Solstice. Mercury also shifts to Gemini at 6:52 am EDT. The Sun and Mercury meet shortly after. It's a day of noticing and experiencing change and flow. Several aspects indicate a need for versatile thinking and flexible plans. Share opinions and information without arguments that Mars and the Moon might lead to. Today's color is Yellow.
Wednesday: Capricorn Moon with void time beginning 11:58 pm EDT. Before then the Moon acts with support from Neptune and emphasis of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Something from Full Moon weekend may arise again for constructive effort and approach. Mars aligns with Uranus which feels like assurance that something is happening and what needs to change is changing. Today is about moving past the blocks, inner or external. In some cases, the journey may be bumpy or downright rocky. Today's color is Black.
Thursday: Void Moon until 1:49 pm EDT when she sails into Aquarius. The Moon and Sun will be in harmony and the Moon squares Uranus. During void Moon keep decisions and tasks simple. Catch up on things like housework and cleanups. Aquarius Moon is for vision and moving past obstacles with persistence and collaboration. Wear Turquoise Blue.
Friday: Aquarius Moon for late week gatherings, professional or social. Mercury adds to lively conversation, meetings about plans, brainstorming solutions, and enjoying the company. Venus squares the Moon, asking for loyalty and dedication especially in love. Today's color is Pink.
Saturday: Aquarius Moon aligns with Jupiter and moves void of course, all at 8:51 am EDT. The rest of the day is more for enjoyment, socializing or spending time on activities you enjoy. It's a dabbler's day. Wear Blue.
This season of commitment & long lasting decisions continues with the persistence, passion and finality of Scorpio Full Moon on Saturday.
Gentle Chair Yoga starts Monday at Bridge Studio on Waterman Drive South Portland, Maine. I am so looking forward to meeting this group! Be a part of this by signing up for the series at a special rate or drop in. Either way you can sign up before you arrive. 4-5 pm Mondays except Memorial Day, now through June 24th. Change how you feel with breath and movements, and as you choose, you don't even have to leave your seat. Non seated postures will also be offered as well.
Sunday: Happy Mother's Day in the USA. The void of course Moon in Leo is well timed for a relaxed morning, and the planets are in agreement with this Moon sign's positive attitude. Virgo Moon 12:22 pm on (EDT, adjust for your zone), and Virgo is for flowers, yard work and tasks or homework waiting to be done. The Moon aligns with Uranus in a monthly earth sign trine, asking us to do or think differently. Experiment with an alternative way. Today's color is Brown.
Monday: Virgo Moon aligns with Mercury, Virgo's planet and also Saturn in Capricorn. Taurus Sun also aligns with Pluto. Communicate, decide, and consider the realistic options to resolve whatever is in your midst. Neptune across from the Moon could try and pull you into denial or toward romanticizing. But this week is intended for real, solid, grounded approaches. Big and lasting decisions and effects are coming with this Saturday's Full Moon. Today's color is Navy Blue.
Tuesday: Virgo Moon in the earlier hours, aligns with the Sun and Pluto. Sensory input and hands on, kinesthetic experiences inform us. Notice how a texture or scent brings memories today. Is there information in that experience? Something you recall could lead to your next choice or stimulate your intuition. Venus and Mars align today also, and this represents feminine and masculine, ease and drive, beauty and strength. Blend them with positive intentions and for results. It's a good day to work on relationships. The Moon squares Mars at 1:19 pm and void of course Moon begins, lasting until 2:51 pm when the Moon moves to Libra. If you're becoming too emotional and that involves anger or vengeful feelings, take a step back so you don't take action during void Moon that could lend itself to regrets or undesirable results. Libra Moon will be aspect free after 2:51 pm EDT. Quiet the mind. Today's color is Lavender.
Wednesday: Full Moon warmup begins, and planets shift. Libra Moon. Venus moves to Taurus and Mars moves to Cancer. These are more grounded signs for the feminine and masculine planets. Talk and thoughts or ideas turn to actions. Venus is happy in one of her home signs. Mars can be bogged down a bit and passive, internalizing in Cancer. Mercury is in harmony with Neptune in the water signs. It may be a good day or evening for writing, processing feelings, taking a soft or tender approach with something that has been unclear or stressful. Connect with someone you love and/or care about deeply. Today's color is Pink.
Thursday: Libra to Scorpio Moon, void of course from 5:37 am to 5:26 pm EDT. This is transition time and lends well to open schedules and spontaneous adventures. Some will be doing personal, inner work today, trying to decide on something important. Full Moon due dates are here as the weekend approaches and through Monday. It's also late in Taurus time as next Tuesday invites the Sun to Gemini. Everything is about long term consequences and impact now.
