WCYY & Robin's Zodiac Zone Part Ways

Robin's Zodiac Zone aired on WCYY from May of 2000 when I started doing Alternative Mornings until Friday, August 29th, 2014. It was a great run, and a wonderful thing that WCYY and also WHOM continued to air Robin's Zodiac Zone for over a year after I left the morning show.

It was simply a business decision on the part of Townsquare Media, the most recent owners. The company's former General Manager chose to keep Robin's Zodiac Zone on the radio as a feature in light of the longevity and loyalty of many listeners in Maine and New Hampshire who tuned in for the Moon sign and color each morning. He has since moved on from the company as well. 

Change happens. It's okay. I have only love for all the time I spent on the radio there, for my colleagues there, and for all the awesome people I've met and interacted with through WCYY, WHOM, and WBLM. Words cannot really capture how much the stations, WCYY in particular, are a huge part of my heart and soul. 

Having said that, I do feel badly that the radio broadcast and the Zodiac Zone text will be discontinued for now. I know how many of you value it and consider it a part of your morning. I've always enjoyed creating it for you with the hope it helped make every day your best day possible! I'm very thankful for each and every one of you who listens, reads, and keeps in touch. You have made my experience so rich! It's time we transform that, and move the venue from CYY/HOM to...(to be continued)

This is new news to me as of Thursday, so there is no plan yet for where Robin's Zodiac Zone will find a new home on radio or other media outlet. I am open to possibilities including your suggestions. 

I've written your daily forecasts since July of 1999 and you will still find them at Robin's Zodiac Zone and the RoZoYo™ web sites! For the week ahead, I've posted Soundcloud links with the audio. This is a temporary way to give you the forecast while other plans develop. *

I'll see those of you in Maine this fall and winter! For RoZoYo™ Yoga & Gallery style astrology readings, I'm at Greener Postures in South Portland on Saturday, December 6th. Registration is on now! And I will have more news very soon. 

I appreciate all your support and loyalty during these next transitions! Stay connected!

Robin's Zodiac Zone September Day by Day Planner

October 4th to 25th Mercury retrograde returns, and there will be two October eclipses on the 8th and 23rd. September is stable ground to build from, and maybe if you get the foundation down, the trembles & quakes will shake you less! 

I see plenty of challenge in September, particularly in negotiating plans that involve multiple parties, in managing reactions to change and news, and with scale of spending & projects, as in how much to expand or reign things in. At the same time, there is lots of room for growth and solid decision making.

Here are some key words for September days:

September 1 Transitions, Communicate honestly
September 2- 3 Respond thoughtfully & deliberately, Create order
September 4- 5 Produce, Show results, Be willing to face fears
September 6 Gather, Find middle ground, Collaborate
September 7 Stay out of debates, Practice focusing & refocusing
(Full Moon September 8th in Pisces 9:38 pm EDT)
September 8- 9 Resolve feelings, Step out of dysfunction, Surround yourself with art, music, film, creative friends
September 10 Expand ideas, Be real in relationships
September 11 Structure & Define
September 12 Construct, Build, Connect with each other
September 13 Be ready for anything, Avoid overreacting
September 14 Process, Keep expectations reasonable (in love)
September 15 Be spontaneous, Revise, Enjoy people
September 16 Nurture & Dream
September 17 Protect your interests & minimize reactions
September 18 Negotiate, Simplify
September 19- 20 Action, Growth, Know your limits
September 21 Negotiate, Talk serious business, Be realistic
September 22 Heal old wounds, Resolve
September 23 Be passionate & Intentional, Reconsider
(New Moon in Libra September 24th 2:14 am)
September 24- 25 Be decisive, Adjust to sudden shifts
September 26 Communicate well, Team up
September 27 Ferret out information, Move ahead
September 28 Scale down if necessary, Show love
September 29- 30 Adventures, Changes of scenery, 
Take action (29th) Find freedom (30th)

I'll expand on these ideas in weekly posts at or

August Astrological Planning Guide

Hi everyone! Wherever you are, I hope your summer season is going well. Astrologically, summer is on the upswing with Mercury, Mars and Saturn all direct after retrograde times! The energy is much more free for sorting things out and resolving even long term issues. It's also better for building, starting anything brand new, and motivating. 

Jupiter in Leo all the way until August of 2105 puts expansion plans in favor! The planet of growth is in a sign of creativity, performers, and children. Mars in Scorpio is square to planets in Leo, Mercury (on the 2nd) & Jupiter (on the 1st). Great effort is called for to improve communication, get past obstacles and focus on growth of a business, relationship, creative project or take care of a health issue (specifically the back, heart, reproductive and sexual health, and scheduling necessary surgeries.) With squares, you must find the places to yield or soften so you don't get stuck in obstacles you've created yourself or given too much power to.

The Full Moon of the 10th shows energies of opposition in Aquarius/Leo and challenging squares in Leo/Scorpio too. You will earn every bit of joy or satisfaction from any success or agreement you are able to make during this part of the month. Results will not come easy, but the time and attention you invest will assure strength, commitment and longevity of the outcomes. Hold out for the best deal while being willing to negotiate. When the Sun and Saturn mix like this, a big risk or gamble is not recommended. Go with solid feelings and sure things, loyal and reliable people, and the most informed and wise information. 

Here is a guide to help you act on the most astrologically favorable dates.

August 1-2 Issues can flare up. Mercury & Jupiter favor creative problem solving & education. 
August 3-5 Concentration, Long term planning and resolving
August 6-9 Active, Creative, Constructive, Expressive & Independent thinking
August 9-10 Strong, Challenging, Long term decisions
August 11-12 Find Peace, Resolution
August 13-14 Energize, Regroup
August 15 Intuition, Versatility
August 16-17 Listen, Be respectful of differences
August 18-19 Love, relationship, Confidence, News
August 20-22 Create, Nurture, Get to the heart of a matter
August 23 Love, Perform, Be childlike
August 24 Rethink, Own up, Plan
August 25-26 Refresh, Begin, Organize
August 27 Relationships, Understanding, Negotiate
August 28-29 Find strength in differences, Grace under pressure
August 30-31 Final Resolutions, Activity on Goals
