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. If you want a lasting relationship, begin or move into the next phase. If you want out, and feel sure, this is the time. There's nothing wishy washy about a Scorpio Full Moon or Taurus Sun. All in or all out. Many aspects today include Mercury aligned with Saturn retrograde for some overdue announcement, action or decision of a lasting nature. Scorpio Moon 5:26 pm on, opposes Venus in Taurus. Relationship matters are top priority and can't wait in some cases. Act with intention. You're likely not going to reverse or go back once you've taken action. Today's color is Indigo.
Friday: Scorpio Moon opposite Uranus. Notice the shake up going on right now. Things you didn't think would change may be altered dramatically with this Full Moon. Simultaneously, through tomorrow, you may notice others holding back or find yourself doing the same. This is the nature of introspective Scorpio Moon. Mercury sets out to challenge that, demanding conversation and/or revelation this weekend. Breathe through transitions either welcome or unwelcome. Something is shaking out into the open so it can be known, for more clarity and truth as you move forward. Today's color is Dark Red.
Saturday: Full Moon at 5:11 pm EDT, the start of void of course time. Many aspects in the stars today including Mercury opposing the Moon and also aligning with Pluto. This sheds light on and more so opens up information and exposes what cannot be denied. That could be love or leaving, fear or doing what you have to do, because you intuitively and clearly see. Void Moon 5:11 pm to 9:21 pm EDT. Expect actions to have longevity and lasting impact. Some themes include intimacy, solving mysteries, and becoming enlightened to either internal emotions or external realities. Personal and relationship matters intensify and play out. Aspects indicate that there's no going back on what's said or done now. Today's color is White.
Festival Season is here! Maine YogaFest is a very welcoming festival with music by DJ Taz Rashid and by Alicia Mathewson, both of whom are traveling from out of state to join us. I'll be leading Astrology Yoga for Eclipse and Summer Season on Saturday morning, June 28th, 10:30 am.
Also on Friday, June 27th, I'm leading a full day 6 credit hour workshop on expanding and modifying vinyasa practice to suit more bodies, including your own! You can come to this workshop if you are a yoga teacher who wants to be more versatile and confident, who wants to connect with other teachers and receive credits for Yoga Alliance, or if you as a student want to vary your practice and know how to shift things if your body is saying no (or less!) to postures like low pushup or moves like step forward to lunge.
See the schedule of all this great stuff! You do not have to be a yoga regular to come to this fest! You can come and receive your Reiki 1 certification, for example, or attend music, meditative or restorative practices, aerial yoga (filling fast!) or paddle board yoga off East End Beach. Maine YogaFest is held at East End School on Munjoy Hill.
I'll also be at Wild Vibes Fest in July in South Berwick for Shamanic Yoga!
Happy New Moon!
Sunday: Promises, plans and projects take hold under this New Moon in Taurus. Today is the first full day since New Moon at 6:45 pm EDT Saturday. Act with strong intention and avoid agreeing to anything you feel flimsy or uncertain about. Best hours for major agreements and conversations are before 11:10 am EDT when the Moon moves void of course until 11:40 pm EDT. Saturn adds and encourages us to be businesslike, organized, and responsible with actions and commitments. Today's color is Green.
Monday: Gemini Moon and Mercury moves to Taurus. Mercury is Gemini's ruling planet and it's all about travel and communication. Commit to a writing project, short or long term, a book, manual, blog or a final paper that's coming due. It could be a good day for car buying or tuning up your bike. Lots of plans will be taking shape. Keep the calendar and to do list up to date. Today's color is Yellow.
Tuesday: A very active Gemini Moon eventually meets Mars tonight. Be careful of disagreements or outbursts that could easily be triggered. Venus squares Saturn and relationship adjustments need to be made. Perhaps one of you is more frivolous or free spirited and the other very task oriented or serious, right now or by nature. How can you make allowances for each other and find some balance when together? Void Moon starts at 7:50 pm EDT. It's a good night out as long as you're not out of sorts. Careful on the roads with that Mars aspect. Today's color is Blue.
Wednesday: Cancer Moon starts 5:06 am EDT. Mercury and Uranus meet and unexpected news, events, and changes of plan are likely. The conditions are right for a breakthrough or ground breaking, scrapping an old plan in favor of something different, and different approaches in general. Think out of the box. The Moon is in harmony with both planets so home, family and emotional matters are involved. The Sun aligns with Neptune in Pisces for creative options and artistic expression. It's the continuation of New Moon activity and energies. Today's color is Light Blue.
Thursday: With 7 obvious Moon and planetary aspects, today is a big mix. Imagine having several priorities at once. Venus is the standout planet involved in 3 squares. Venus is relationship and balance and is in Aries, the initiator. Squares are challenging and need working through. Personal relationships need attention, compromise, understanding and willingness this week. Today has a serious tone and you may notice less humor. Contemplate what is being asked of you or what is required, and remember this is a time of long term consequences and impact as you decide. Cancer Moon void at 10:06 pm EDT until 9:14 am Friday. Today's color is Pink.
Friday: Leo Moon from 9:14 am on. The morning could get a slow or sluggish or even an out of sorts beginning. Leo Moon aims to brighten things up, but even more so aims to confront problems and initiate conversations of an important nature. There's some tension in the air if a talk is waiting to happen or perhaps around public speaking or appearances. Today's color is Gold.
Saturday: Leo Moon is fixed like Taurus is. Longevity and future impact and influence is a given in everything we take on now, from an astrology point of view. The Moon squares the Sun in Taurus and the Sun is trine to Saturn in Capricorn. We are asked to be constructive and committed. If responsible actions weren't taken in the past, this may be a new chance in those situations. It also may feel like something came back to 'bite' you. You can probably fix it so it doesn't happen again. This may take your will and commitment. 2nd quarter Moon tonight is for progress. Today's color is Orange.
Sunday: Aquarius Moon void of course from 5:44 am to 6:11 pm EDT. The Moon is in harmony with Jupiter for interesting meetings and opening the mind. Pisces Moon this evening. Seek something different for a refreshed perspective or interaction. Today's color is Turquoise.
Monday: Pisces Moon lines up with the Sun and Uranus in Taurus. Saturn begins a retrograde at 8:54 pm in Capricorn. Emotional sensitivity and attention is strong. Today's color is Light Green.
Tuesday: Pisces Moon with aspects to 5 different planets. You might call this a multifaceted day and some things could feel out of sync. Moods are shifty, and people may be very sensitive. Even if you're reluctant, there are indications of what needs to be taken care of, including emotional well being. Thoughtful and gentle is the way to go. Void Moon starts at 5:57 pm EDT for the night. Today's color is Purple.
Wednesday: Aries Moon time begins 6:24 am EDT. Mercury brings the story and the action with a sextile to Mars and a square to Saturn retro in Capricorn. This feels like time for a fresh start and to put some energy or closure on things that have been hanging out waiting for attention. Break the stalemate. Today's color is Red.
Thursday: Aries Moon meets Venus, Mercury squares Pluto and aligns with Jupiter. Mercury is planet of planning, words, contracts, conversations, meetings, and travels. Mercury is having a busy mid week, and action is called for. Some of this may feel very retrograde, retroactive, and in some cases long overdue. The Venus/Moon conjunction can be exciting and inspiring and spark romantic connections. Today's color is Orange.
Friday: Aries to Taurus Moon, void in transition from 4:47 am to 4:18 pm EDT. Overnight aspects show today to be full of activity. We may feel energized on this day before New Moon. Mercury is the final planet to be in aspect, a conjunction with the Moon at 4:47 am EDT. This sets up a very communicative and travel oriented day. If you're thinking of a new car, bike or other vehicle, the pull will be strong. Changes and refreshes are favored. Press restart today or overnight into the weekend. Tonight the Moon meets Uranus so be extra aware and tuned in. Emotional situations may be stirred or shaken. Wear Yellow today.
Saturday: Taurus New Moon 6:45 pm EDT. There are no other aspects with planets, only this meeting with the Sun. Strengthen your will and resolve. Make a bold move and make sure whatever you do or say, that you mean it. Actions have staying power and are hard to take back later when the Moon is in Taurus. White is our New Moon color.
Sunday: Happy Passover and Easter. Tomorrow is Earth Day. There are many celebrations of spring and we are right in the middle of the season now as the Sun shifted to Taurus on Saturday. Today starts with a void of course Moon that closes as the Moon moves on to Sagittarius at 11:59 am EDT. Mercury & Venus are in harmony with the Moon for adventures, day trips, and pleasant or mind opening conversations. Today's color is Purple.
Monday: Earth Day. Sagittarius Moon opposite Mars. Be aware of the possibility for strong debates or arguments. Note if you're bringing up a topic that could instigate or irritate. The Sun meets Uranus in Taurus. This could lead to a break with tradition or usual ways of doing things. We might be pushed to consider alternatives whether we invite that or not. Uranus shakes things up, the Sun is expressive and both are in strong will and earthy Taurus. It may be easier to understand the impact or effects once in hindsight. Overall, today has a bold streak. Wear Brown.
Tuesday: Sag Moon is void of course, in the between time, from 7:44 am EDT to 6:50 pm. Moon meets Jupiter as void time begins. Under this relatively long void Moon we may want to stray off the usual path, have some escape time, and to do less and experience spontaneously. Read a book with a wildly interesting topic if you're enjoying downtime and want some inspiration. Capricorn Moon 6:50 pm EDT leads us to results oriented thinking or tasks. The Moon aligns with Uranus for some aftereffects of yesterday's Sun conjunction with that planet, and we internalize and process whatever has come by surprise or chance. Today's color is Green.
Wednesday: Pluto begins a retrograde in Capricorn and will backtrack 5 degrees between now and October 3rd. It's subtle, generally. If Pluto is in a prominent or loaded place in your own birth chart perhaps you will notice more. Pluto is retrograde about 40% of time so it's not necessarily an unusual thing, but this time Pluto is close to Saturn and some serious reflection and finalizing may take place. We may work through tough processes of letting go, that happen over a long period of time. Simultaneously or alternatively, gifts and talents and heart's desires or life purpose may be arising for your recognition and eventually action. Pluto retro can point out what we've been trying to control that cannot be controlled. Capricorn Moon in harmony with the Sun and square to Venus and Mercury. Notice what you need to do something about and 'get going' on. It may be in relationship or business/career. It's a strong reasoning and decision making kind of day. Today's color is Black.
Thursday: Capricorn Moon void of course 3:48 pm EDT until 5:27 am on Friday. The Moon meets Pluto and Saturn (see yesterday's post for insight) and is in harmony with Pluto. A soft, reflective or thoughtful approach is called for, even if you have a difficult situation or task to deal with. Remember that everyone has feelings and not everyone sees the world as you do. Today's color is Gray.
Friday: Aquarius Moon in effect from 5:27 am EDT through Sunday afternoon. Moon squares Uranus and the Sun and aligns with Venus. Challenges and obstacles may be showing up this week, but many can be worked through. 'Where there's a will there is a way' may be relevant. Also though, some things have to be let go of. People, for example, can't be changed or controlled by your will. If new romance or re-inspired love is part of your world right now, enjoy an evening together. Venus in Aries sparks those flames. Other gatherings and parties are also favored. Today's color is Pink.
Saturday: Aquarius Moon aligns with Mercury and Mars. Notice what inspires or drives you. There's a go for it feeling about these alignments. It's also socially interesting. Notice who you connect with or meet. Mars squares Neptune encouraging us to review our ideals and be flexible with expectations. Today's color is Blue.

Sunday: Leo Moon with easy aspects to Jupiter and the Sun in fire signs. Jupiter and the Sun are in harmony too, for good fortune and feelings. Venus aligns with Pluto and we see and feel beauty. Acknowledge your feelings and allow for sensitivity. Some will be generous or receive massive kindness. Void Moon 9:38 pm EDT. Today's color is Gold.
Monday: The Moon shifts from Leo to Virgo at 6:14 am EDT. Moon lines up with Uranus in earth signs, and Venus squares Jupiter as the Moon squares Mars for some interesting dynamics. Notice what's been going overboard and needs some scaling back. Stay away from argumentative people. Take care of personal business, finances and reinforcing good habits. Today's color is Navy Blue.
Tuesday: Virgo Moon opposite Neptune, trine to Saturn and Pluto. The Moon also squares Jupiter. We may come to some resolutions today. Be creative with solutions and find some flexibility. Today's color is Black.
Wednesday: Virgo Moon void from 12:29 am to 7:22 am EDT, and we're warming up for a Full Moon on Friday. The Moon moves to Libra our Full Moon sign (again!) at 7:22 am, and Mercury moves to action starting Aries. Venus and Mercury both oppose the Moon in Virgo/Libra. Negotiations and the balancing act between personalities are part of this day. Libra is a sign of legalities, marriage and justice. Notice what's amping up or ready to be announced in those areas. Today's color is Pink.
Thursday: Libra Moon square to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, spotlighting the cardinal signs and themes of progress and the need to be decisive. Mars and Jupiter are in harmony with the Moon. We're encouraged to move on pending matters and reminded of Full Moon closure and deadlines this week. Weigh pros and cons. Be wise with words and wording. Today's color is Maroon.
Friday: Libra Moon is Full at 7:12 am EDT and the Moon moves to Scorpio at 8:41 am. This is our 2nd Libra Full Moon in a row, somewhat uncommon, and appears to be another chance or another 'go' at partnership decisions and agreements. This could instead, or simultaneously, be about a legal matter. Full Moons aim for closure, the end of a chapter, and clearing out the old to prepare for the new. Uranus is opposite the Scorpio Moon, indicating surprises turns of events and unexpected outcomes. Today's color is White.
Saturday: Taurus season starts at 4:55 am EDT. Venus moves to Aries at 12:11 am EDT, and the Moon stays in Scorpio. It's Passover and the eve of Easter. Neptune and Saturn form different yet both harmonious aspects to the Moon. We can be both practical and creative at once and these planets remind us. Scorpio Moon deepens intuition and feelings or identification with spirituality. Today's color is Indigo.
