It’s officially Pisces Season when the Sun Enters the sign of Pisces on February 18th, 2021, and it stays there through March 20th.
Being the last sign of the Zodiac, it is a time when we reach the highest point of the Cosmic Wheel. We’re looking for closure and should be wrapping up last-minute details over the next month, from the last 12 months, as we prepare for something new. The Spring Equinox occurs, and the Sun Enters the sign of Aries all on March 21st, which is a time of new beginnings.
The sign of Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions, which is symbolic for beginnings and endings, and cause and effect, or Yin and Yang. New beginnings always follow an ending, so if we shut a door, a window opens. In other words, take action, and often opportunities will show up
With the SUN in imaginative and compassionate Pisces, we are strongly in tune with our intuition and emotions. Making decisions or commitments may not be easy under the influence but tapping into our intuition is.
A connection needs to be made to our higher-self, as this is a time of healing! Our imagination and intuition are very strong. We’re plugged into everything around us because the veils between this physical world and other spiritual realms have dissolved. As these boundaries come down, we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. It’s very easy for those of us with an Empathic or sensitive nature to pick up on other people’s issues and emotions during the time. We can struggle with knowing what we’re feeling and if they are our own or if we’re just picking up on someone else.
It’s important with the SUN in Pisces to surround ourselves with kind, loving energy. This time is best spent tapping into our spirit or higher-self (no matter how we go about it.) One of the best ways to work with this energy is to get involved in creative projects. We aren’t as motivated to do as we are just to feel, imagine, and dream. Our attitude is much more relaxed as we feel more connected to the universal energies.
Pisces energy rules empathy, compassion, selfless love, and devotion. We can become very vulnerable in this energy. The shadow side to this energy can make you feel badly about yourself and cause self-pity and worthless feelings. There’s a stronger fear of being victimized by life or deceived in some way. So work on letting go of any fears or doubts you’re holding onto because feelings tend to flow more easily. Allow this energy just to be what it is.
Venus, the planet of pleasure, shifts into dreamy Pisces from February 25 through March 21.
This transit fires up our fantasies and can turn our love lives into a dream.
The Piscesan energy wants us to share our feelings as it has no bounds in love. We have more compassion and are attracted to people who are left out, overlooked, or victimized. We can be self-sacrificing and have difficulty keeping up healthy boundaries in our relationships. As the walls between this physical world and the spiritual dissolve, we can find ourselves struggling to say No, especially if our heart has been touched in some way.
We can be quite sensitive and will avoid anything or anyone that makes us feel uncomfortable. Pisces invented the word Ghosted, so we need to not push for love or a commitment. Don’t not underestimate our ghostiness abilities during this time. Just go with the flow.
Fantasies and wishful thinking can be strong while Venus is in Pisces. But we must be careful not to fool ourselves by only believing what we want, as lines get more easily crossed. Finding some people may be more difficult as this energy is elusive and dream-like, and it can pull us into a strange space, and a twilight zone like state of mind, where everything feels odd. So be careful not to lose touch with reality under its influence.
We can feel detached from our physical reality and feel as if we are almost outside of it, like when remote viewing. Our dream world is highly active, and it’s easier to cross into different realms and dimensions. There can be signs and symbols in our dreams from the Universe, so we need to pay attention to what messages they are trying to convey.
During the Venus in Pisces cycle, we put on rose-colored glasses to view our relationships in the way we want to (we can do the same with money.) Often, love can be hard to define, and our thinking can be illogical. But our hearts are full of compassion, especially with our partners, or lovers. In our relationships, we might rediscover a kind of compassion that was thought to be lost. We can feel more connected with the world in an emotional way.
Connecting into our emotions can bring some clarity, as our life is all the colors of the rainbow. So we embrace love and forgive more easily. We seem to understand or sympathize with people better during this time. We thoroughly enjoy the art of seduction, as escapism is a rush. Just don’t escape into drugs or alcohol for a whole month!
Venus in Pisces energy can soften our disposition as we feel more tender and affectionate. There’s a stronger longing or desire to hold on to something we can’t describe or put our finger on, so feeling satisfied may not come so easy. Boundaries dissolve in relationships and often with our cash flow when Venus is in Pisces. If there’s already been relationship or money issues in your life since January of this year, you need to buckle down and be more mindful of what you are communicating during this cycle.
Our imagination is very strong and active. This transit’s shadowy side often sparks our fantasies about romance, especially involving our past relationships. There also can be feelings of sadness, and we can feel more down and hurt over what we have lost in love. It’s time to let go of the pain we’ve been holding onto and release a dream or relationship in some cases.
We can be attracted to more complicated and strongly unbalanced people. It’s not the best idea to go back to an ex-lover that hurt you, as you might be focused on only the positive things that happened and can lose sight of what was wrong in the first place. It can backfire if we try to get back with ex-lovers or friends from the past.
Zen it out and get into spiritual activities like meditation, journal-writing, yoga or exercise, or doing anything that helps you connect to your higher-self, and that will help keep you stay grounded.
Take care, enjoy the Venus in Pisces vibes and work on self-care, self-love, and self-nurturing!

Regardless, we all can feel some sort of tension in two areas of our lives, when thus influence peaks again in June and December of 2021.
Saturn teaches all of us about honoring the past, tradition and sticking to what has always worked. While Uranus likes to stir things up to create change, it’s more about breaking down the boundaries that got put in place by Saturn! This rather tense connection wants us to push past old patterns, habits, and behaviors that need to be changed. We want our independence and freedom but must learn to stick to something traditional. So its influence can affect many different parts of our lives, from our careers, health, relationships, home, and family life.
Some of these changes can be rather good, but this energy also tends to shake things up, as it takes us out of our comfort zone! We can feel resistance to making changes, as this influence puts pressure on us, but these energies will keep coming around until we make some necessary changes.
There might be something that needs to end, as challenges are presented to make changes. But we may refuse to deal with the inevitable. This influence insists that you go through it and start something new, adjust and rebuild. Being prepared is important, so we are not caught off guard by whatever events come our way.

It’s a time to actively follow a health or self-care program and look for healing techniques that are structured and practical. It’s always the little steps we take in our everyday routines that often work in our favor.
We can express our unique abilities on our own more naturally, but we don’t want to upset anyone and aren’t looking to cause controversy, since we’re more charming and can act more professional and respectful. We aren’t looking to show off under this aspect, as we’re more humble and realistic, so we can pursue our goals and increase our chances for success.
It can be easier to use our special knowledge, talents, or wisdom in the world without making too big of a spectacle. So we can be more successful because we’re more self-sufficient and work independently. Others will appreciate and admire how reliable we are in our work ethic.
This influence encourages us to follow the rules while also sticking to our own inner wisdom and intuition. But we will do things in our way, as we follow certain morals and ethics to find commonality and come to better understandings with anyone in power or authority.

February puts us in a romantic state of mind with Venus, the Goddess of Love entering the free-spirited sign of Aquarius. And she stays there just through February 25th. Finally Venus shifts from the serious sign of Capricorn into Aquarius, and our love lives become more wild and rebellious, so we can play and have some fun again! It really can be a love and lust free-for-all during this cycle.
With Venus in Aquarius, we tend to see everyone as equal, regardless of our differences. We can end up in some pretty interesting relationships and love entanglements, which can be strictly platonic and otherwise. This is an extremely social energy, with so many planets in the sign of Aquarius. And is good for our relationships but it also can be a dangerous time with COVID still running rapidly! We must be more mindful than ever to be extra careful! Our affections don’t run as deeply, as we are more focused on taking care of business and keeping ourselves secure, especially financially. So we can be somewhat cold or appear emotionless at times with others.

In 2020 the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction dominated our lives, and similarly, a tense Square between Saturn and Uranus forms on February 17th and will be in the backdrop of our lives throughout 2021! Its presence will be known in all our lives.
The Saturn/Uranus cycle began 33 yrs ago, back when these two planets aligned on February 12th, 1988. There will be two more meetings between these two impacting the year, on June 14th and December 24th, 2021. Even though they connect on these dates, and their energies will be stronger at that time, the energy they put out continues to play out throughout the year.
With Uranus’s influence involved, this is a strong time for change to occur and when revolutions are born! We’ve already seen how these energies play out over the last several months! We are on a journey of self-discovery as we evolve into something new and different. Truly it seems to be good versus evil!
Saturn is naturally cautious and disciplined, while Uranus is impulsive but connects us to higher sources. When pushed, Saturn’s energy can be more rigid and demanding, whereas Uranus can cause fanatic, rebellious, and shocking behavior. Saturn and Uranus are completely opposite in some ways. Saturn wants us to follow the rules, while Uranus often wants freedom at all costs. The energy these two planets put out when they connect shifts and changes a bit, as they both rule over the sign of Aquarius! So we might be able to have more of an appreciation for what these two planets have in common.
The push and pull of making important changes will be ongoing all year long. This influence demands that we make important changes in our lives that give us more freedom and independence. But also create solid foundations that we can build upon for our future plans and goals. The evidence of this planetary alignment has been strong for a while now. And its story will continue to be written throughout the year.
The Sun will enter the sign of Pisces on February 18th, so we can feel more sensitive to the energies around us and be more vulnerable and impressionable. But we’re more compassionate and loving at times. Our ego is not as driven under this influence, so we can be more selfless. This influence puts us in touch with our imagination and intuition, as our inner muse is clearer. We tend to see the beauty in the flaws and differences in each other, so we’re more accepting of others for who they are, even if we have a difference of opinion. The Sun will be in Pisces through March 21st.
Mercury Goes Direct!
Mercury in Aquarius is currently in Retrograde, but on February 20th, it will start to move forward once again. This energy gives us the ability to take advantage of plans for the future. At this point, we will have had nearly a month to review our life. With so much Aquarius energy at play, we have an opportunity to work on self-discovery and to develop better. This influence gives us some time to heal and reconnect with love in some fashion, with both others and ourselves. We are collectively making huge energetic shifts, which require changes to be made in our personal lives.
The Goddess of Love will shift once again on February 25th, when Venus moves into more compassionate Pisces and joins the Sun in the sign of the fish, Pisces. Our emotions run much deeper.

People tend to be more selfless in love, so our feelings can run deeper in our relationships and friendships. This will be a time to reconnect to your spiritual- self and get your Zen on! So practice energy workthat connects you to your spirit, through activities like meditation, journal-writing, exercise, and anything that helps you feel more connected to your higher-power or higher-self!
A Perfect Full Moon
The Full Moon occurs on February 27th in the sign of Virgo. In a time of perfectionism, we can see what is broken and needs to be fixed in our relationships, lives, and ourselves. Under this Virgo energy, we can feel strongly about keeping our life more organized and in order. But that doesn’t always mean it’s so easy to accomplish. Baby steps!
With the Sun in Pisces will be in opposition to the Full Moon. The energies flow better but also can be chaotic. An inner struggle is happening for all of us, with such things as doubt and faith, fear and trust, and pessimism and optimism. It’s a powerful time when we need to strike a balance between sticking to traditional ways and making progress. Innovation is the key to success, which can be tricky, but we can find a balance.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break, even though it doesn’t always feel that way. TheCosmos is always striving to create balance, and since much of this Mercury in Retrograde phase will spend its time in the sign of Aquarius, and will be trying to move us forward into the future and helping us make new plans and goals.
During a Mercury Retrograde phase, the Cosmos gives us a chance to slow down a bit and catch up. After all, Mercury is the planet of communication and rules over how we think and process information. It’s the fastest moving planet in our solar system, so it’s Retrograde phase slow us down mentally.
Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is a Cosmic time out! It’s an opportunity to get caught up with our mental tasks so that we can unplug and unwind. It’s also a great time to stop doing so much and take fewer responsibilities or commitments. Maybe take a little vacay (but watch for traveling too far as there can be delays) and focus on reworking anything that needs to get done. Or work on projects that aren’t finished to completion. Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts, so when this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde, we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way. Our thoughts go into a deeper underworld kind of space.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets has lessons for us. This isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to appear to move backward in the future every year. Every once in a while, we get a chance to pause and take a break. To stop taking on so much from our overloaded lives. Because, let’s face it, we’re overstimulated. It’s a time to review your life and the paths you’re on to know if you’re headed in the right direction! Are you in snyc with your true soul journey? Does your life feel like you’re headed down the right path?
This Mercury in Rx cycle helps us breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this energy takes hold is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. Often lovers and friends from the past show up during a Mercury in Retrograde phase but it’s just a reminder or message to heal something within your own heart and get closure if needed. In other words, these fated chance meetings happen for a reason. It’s time to research, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and re-organize your life!
What Not To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:
*Don’t start brand-new projects
*Do not get into arguments; avoid critical or tense people and situations.
*Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements- Avoid Travel
*Do Not take misunderstandings personally.
What To do during Mercury in Retrograde:
*Redo, Rework, Review, Research, and go over things and wrap up old business and projects.
*Double Check the Facts and any Information gathered.
*Re-visit things in your life.
*Re-connect with the ones you love.
*Backup computers and smart devices. Save and back up data and intellectual property.
*Re-organize your daily routines.
*Reflect and practice spiritual work.
*Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you. Let go of what no longer is working, especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle. For example, throwing out old stuff that’s no longer needed or used and organizing different things in our life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them during this cycle.
Perhaps there still an option. Try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing. Please don’t get angry or too frustrated, since we are easily confused and agitated.
Mercury is currently in the sign of Aquarius, so this a time of thinking and planning our future.Therefore, we will be in for some odd twists and turns along the way as we look for ways to find our freedom and independence. The sign of Aquarius is, after all, the sign of the water bearer. So it’s all about the future and being safe and secure.
If we take this cycle to learn how to stand up for ourselves and focus on what’s good for the group and be more open-minded and progressive, we can make things happen. As we go back and re-visit and revise our plans, we can make some interesting new discoveries, but we may have to feel our way through this cycle and that can be not easy with our logical mind under so much strong Aquarius energy. Remember to feel whenever you can and not overthink things.
It’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster, ” so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds, which confuses us. Lots of people come back around from our past including ex-lovers and friends. Mercury’s influence seems to bring these chance meetings together. But that doesn’t mean it’s fated or destined to be together. It is usually about healing.
Our focus should be on re-organizing, reviewing, and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these Aquarian filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to rationalize everything. Logic is out, and intuition is in during Mercury Rx.
Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so practicing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, and re-connecting to our past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time for studying, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken or learned.
Because we perceive things differently, the truth tends to come out, and you might notice or find some detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion on February 20th.
The Full Moon or Wolf Moon occurs in Leo on January 28, 2021, at 2:16 PM EST, 1:16 PM CST, 12:16 PM MST, 11:00 PM PST.
The Full Moon in Leo marks the beginning of a new cycle in our life once again.
The Moon is Full when the Sun in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo. The Full Moon is a powerful influence that activates our emotions, so it’s helpful to find a balance between the Sun and Moon’s opposition.
During this Full Moon, the Universe is inviting you to work on something specific. Think about what part of your life is on your mind and where there’s tension. Focus on letting something go, even if it’s just a bad feeling or behavior. Let your intuition be your guide and help you solve any problems happening in your life. This Full Moon energy teaches us how to sync our logical thinking with our intuition.
The Full Moon pulls on our emotions, causing nervousness, excitement, anxiety, and exhaustion. Insomnia is also a side effect of the Full Moon for many, and our dreams can be especially strong and vivid. As we focus more on the relationships, we have with other people.
This particular Full Moon wants us to learn how to balance our personal life with our impersonal world. Leo’s proud Full Moon helps us tap into our creativity and gives us a boost of confidence and courage to express ourselves. We can learn that pleasure is a good thing under this energy, as some people find it difficult or feel guilty for enjoying themselves! This is a romantic Full Moon!
However, the Sun in Aquarius teaches how to work with a group and be part of a team. It’s focused on our impersonal connections and acquaintances. While learning about our individuality and independence and why we need to be part of a “team.” Work on opening your mind and being objective in relationships. Find balance in friendships and romantic endeavors.
The bright Full Moon in the night sky symbolically illuminates our emotional issues and brings forth the truth! It is a time of awareness and growth. We can experience sudden epiphanies or A-ha moments. But the visions we have are relatively new and emotional. It can be tough to hold our tongue due to a strong urge to express how we feel. This helps us release what’s no longer working through self-expression. Over the next few weeks, we might understand this Full Moon’s lessons.
The Full Moon and Sun are aligning with giant Jupiter this time around. So we can feel more hopeful and optimistic, and courageous! It’s important to be realistic, with Jupiter and Saturn still in close proximity. Saturn wants us to follow the rules and stick to earthly business. The Moon also squares Mars, which causes impulsive behavior and combative attitudes!
A may not be so easy to hold our feelings in with such a strong urge to express them, which we should be doing in healthy ways. So Zen it out, and try activities like Meditation, Journal-writing, Exercise, or whatever helps you connect to your higher-self. We’re feeling raw emotions right now that aren’t rational, so give yourself some time to process your feelings. It’s important under the Full Moon to raise our energies to a higher vibrational level. If we can sustain a higher vibration within ourselves, then our life will reflect it, and we can manifest our goals, wishes, and desires much easier.
Each month the Full Moon helps us discover certain truths, and this clarity helps us choose what specific wishes we need to manifest. The Full Moon helps us let go and release situations, people, or behaviors that aren’t working or serving us. Endings happen during this time, and in two weeks from now, as the New Moon occurs, we fan plant seed of intention for something new to begin.
Wishing you a safe and happy blessed Full Moon! ~Ruby
The Sun shifts into inquisitive Aquarius on January 19th, 2021.
Happy Birthday to all my Aquarius peeps, and welcome to AQUARIUS SEASON, everyone!
This month-long cycle keeps us hungry for knowledge and experience. There’s a stronger urge to mingle once again, so we search for new ways of doing things and for what’s original, different, or unique. It’s a time of self-expression, as our thoughts and actions both drive our ambitions.
During this time, we can become increasingly aware of what is no longer working in our lives and can strive to find what will, as we’re open to learning fresh new perspectives. After all, Aquarius is the Zodiac’s humanitarian, so we can feel pulled to like-minded people and groups to help them get what they rightfully deserve.
Under the Sun in Aquarius, we can feel artistic, friendly, and social. So our general attitude about life is more peaceful but also concerned. We can be quite detached emotionally simply because we want to take care of business. This energy can be nerve-wracking for some and cause high anxiety, especially if we focus on what’s lacking. Turn this worrisome energy into something you can manifest by setting goals and plans for the future. Tackle one thing at a time and prepare yourself. Concentrate on helping others because being detached from our emotions helps us put our feelings aside just long enough to take care of business.
Now that it’s officially Aquarius Season we as individuals will seek more independence and freedom. The status quo doesn’t satisfy. Especially, with so many other planets in this sign like Saturn, Jupiter and recently mental Mercury. We’re going to work very hard now to free ourselves from any restrictions, limitations, and inhibitions that keep us feeling blocked or constrained.
We’re still in the battle against Covid, so we must lockdown and stay in place if we like it or not, life is different for all of us, and we aren’t able to be as social as we used to be. These limitations don’t sit well with us, and people feel quite irritated, especially under all this Aquarius energy because we have a deeper need to be free and alive! The shadow side of Aquarius is rebellion and possible revolution, and that’s already begun here in the US! It’s important to get out of our comfort zones and look into the furthest parts of our minds for answers and more peaceful resolutions!
There’s a lot of movement and excitement, usually during Aquarius Season, along with brilliant ideas and discoveries! We tend to be more open-minded so we can experience more awareness and knowingness. And there are some seriously important A-Ha moments and epiphanies. We can experience strokes of genius, as we’re flooded with information during this time. Taking notes and journal writing can be quite telling during this cycle.
With the Sun in Aquarius, we are better at expressing ourselves more openly. To flow better with this energy, we should try new ways of communicating and expressing ourselves. Areas of study that involve science, technology, and metaphysics can go extremely well. New Age is in, now that we are actually in the “Age of Aquarius,” as we are more attracted to the unusual, bizarre, or just something different.
Conventional or traditional values are changed up during this time, with fresh and exciting horizons ahead, we are motivated by spirit. Now with mental Mercury also in the sign of Aquarius and the Sun, we get the chance to stretch our minds, bodies, and spirits. Explore the possibilities safely!
The New Moon in Capricorn peaks on January 13, 2021, at 12:01 AM EST.
The New Moon in Capricorn symbolizes new beginnings and a Cosmic new cycle. It comes together when the Sun and Moon align both in the sign of practical Capricorn. New Moon’s are generally more harmonious and put off a easy-going kind of energy. Depending upon what other planets the New Moon is connecting with, and the other Cosmic transits at play.
We can focus on some of the more positive traits of the sign of the mystical Sea-Goat, Capricorn, during this New Moon, as we all have this sign in our Astrology Birth Charts. We can feel more tenacious, resourceful, disciplined, ambitious, wise, prudent, and constant. We should figure out ways to tap into these special qualities within ourselves and in our lives.
It’s a time to focus on what’s practical, steady and look for attainable long-term goals. It’s good to develop our common sense and maturity levels by taking care of our responsibilities. Making preparations for the future through commitments and nurturing our hopes and dreams more realistically can help us succeed.
Under this potent Capricorn energy, we can finally create some order in our world, since it has been so chaotic lately. It’s a good time to make secure plans and to reap the rewards from the new beginnings that come our way. Dream up plans no matter how small or big they may be, so when the Full Moon comes together in a few weeks, we can tap back into this energy.
Capricorn energy teaches all of us the value of accountability and acceptance. We must understand that boundaries and rules are actually what gives us freedom from worry and chaos. If goals are put in place under this energy, we’ll have more time to focus on what really matters and our security.
This lunation is also aligning with powerful Pluto on the day of the New Moon, which intensifies its energies. This New Moon’s influence will be highly concentrated, and we can be much more focused, driven, ambitious, and obsessive.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 23 degrees and 13 mins of Capricorn, affecting those born with personal planets and points at 19 to 27 degrees of the Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn most significantly. But this affects all of us in one way or another.
It’s that time again! Under this New Moon energy, we can ask the Universe for our wishes, hopes, and dreams! Write down and then visualize them into existence and take the time to feel what it’s like actually to have them, be it through visualization or meditation. Just don’t get hung up on the details of how you’re reaching your goals. Only focus on having what you truly desire. Keeping it realistic, as we are under all this Capricorn energy, so it’s important to stay focused on what’s truly attainable.
Mercury, the messenger planet, moves into Aquarius on January 8th.
Mercury rules over the mind and helps us tap into higher dimensions, so things should get rather interesting with Mercury in progressive Aquarius through March 15th.
Heads-Up Mercury will enter its Retrograde cycle, starting January 30th, and runs through February 20th. We have already entered the Pre-shadow phase! When the planet Mercury starts to slow down to get ready to appear moving backward or turn Retrograde through the Cosmos. So the energies are going to be quite strange. I will have more on this later.
Mercury rules our thoughts, perceptions, and communications, and in the sign of Aquarius, we are inventive, innovative, progressive, objective, intuitive, detached, rational, and outspoken. Our opinions are strong and our independence very important. Our minds are downloading amazing inspirational visions, and we can have random A-ha moments and epiphanies. So our awareness is expanded, and our ideas are brilliant, ingenious, and at times revolutionary.
It’s a strong time for free-thinking as we are minds open, so we will see scientific breakthroughs during this cycle. This influence allows us to channel information from higher dimensions and energies, so take advantage of it through spiritual activities such as meditation and journal-writing.
Over the next nine weeks, we feel pulled to explore our ideas, beliefs, strategies, so we can uplift each other and innovate. As Mercury transits the sign of Aquarius, events and experiences start to represent the Mercury traits in Aquarius more so as we think more outside the box.
Between January 8 – 13, Mercury forms a tense Square to warrior Mars in Taurus and is conjunct Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius as well. Mercury is also squaring off with the Great Awakener Uranus in Taurus! This event is being called the 3 Planet Conjunction on social media sites.
These powerful Cosmic energies create revelations that potentially have a strong impact and are definitely meaningful. This is a taste of what’s coming in January/February as other aspects continue to tap into these Cosmic connections. These influences create tensions and frictions between balancing our personal desires and values with what the world needs from us. We must think about the whole picture under these energies.
As Mercury amps up all the newly formed Aquarian energies, Venus also shifts into the sign of Capricorn. This energy re-activates the tensions from last year’s dynamic energies. It’s important to try to be more responsible by creating abundance and happiness even during these difficult times. We can make this happen by acknowledging our feelings about our difficulties and seeing our blessings, even the little ones.
The key to success and navigating through January and February of 2021 is to let go of the old ways while still valuing tradition and embracing the new ways!
Rubys Astro Readings Full Moon – New Year 2021 December 29th
For All Zodiac Signs
A Full Moon in the sign of Cancer peaks on Tuesday and can have us feeling all the feels! So if you’ve been feeling weepy and sad or just more emotional, you know why.
This particular Full Moon brings up issues in our relationships (of all kinds), especially in loving or intimate ones. It also puts out a powerful, strong emotional energy while it transits sensitive Cancer. So we might feel overly sensitive and can take things way too personal. People tend to feel more easily rejected or passed over when, in reality, we may just need some space. We can get clingy and hold on to those we care about too tight, but smothering someone won’t make them love you anymore; in fact, it will do just the opposite and make them go away!
With the Full Moon’s light illuminating our lives, issues are often exposed. This influence pushes us to deal with certain things in our personal lives that we might choose to ignore or neglect. With so much attention being put on our health, relationships, careers, and personal plans these days, this Full Moon encourages us to think about our personal emotional needs as well.
Full Moons are always about creating a balance between the Moon and Sun’s opposition. With the Moon in Cancer and the Sun in Capricorn, we need to focus on what these signs represent. The Full Moon in Cancer wants us to create a balance in our private life, and to learn there is a need for a home base, and to nurture ourselves. The Sun in Capricorn wants us to pay attention to our public life, career, reputation and take accountability. Being attached and in love are ruled by Cancer, while Capricorn rules our rewards and punishments. In some ways, this energy deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. The Cancer Moon teaches us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn shows us how to consider our sense of duty and responsibility and pay more attention to our public lives.
This Wolf Moon harmonizes with the planet Uranus. So it is a gentle eye-opening energy; however, Venus and Neptune also square off on Wednesday, casting a fog and if confusion in our romantic or intimate relationships. You may feel strongly about making a soulmate-like connection with someone, but they may not be as receptive, or you can put them on a pedestal only to learn later they are not all you thought or expected them to be. Ensure you love others for who they are rather than hoping and wishing they will be what you want. Everyone grows and levels up at their own rate, our evolution is a personal journey, and no one should be forced to live by someone else’s expectations.
Don’t forget this is the perfect setup for Setting Intentions along with ringing in a New Year! So make sure to make out those Wishlists and focus on writing about what you don’t want in your life anymore, this can be about anything or anyone, it can be a thing or a behavior! It’s time to release what you need rid of and then make out your Wishes for the upcoming New Year! Powerful energies are at play!
Have a safe and blessed Full Moon, and a amazingly wonderful, prosperous, and healthy New Year! Sending Love & Light to you all. ~Ruby
