The New Moon occurring on April 11, 2021 is in the sign of Aries! But of course remember this influence affects all the Zodiac Signs!
The New Moon in Aries is typically one of the best times for manifesting, Setting Intentions, and planting seeds for new beginnings. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and New Moons signal the start of a new lunar cycle, so this is strong energy for new beginnings and fresh starts.
During this New Moon cycle is a great opportunity to Set Intentions, make out Wish Lists about your hopes, dreams, and desires. Ask the Universe for what you want to see happen in your life next. Start something new and take the lead.

NEW MOON TIMES
PST, April 11, 7:30 pm
EST, April 11, 10:30 pm
CST, April 11, 9:30 pm
MST, April 11, 8:30 pm
Have you been feeling down or depressed lately? This New Moon’s energy can help pick you back up, and even help you get over the sadness or lower vibrational energy you’re feeling. So if you haven’t been able to raise your energy levels or level out emotionally, you may be able to feel better if you do a little bit of work. So it’s worth the effort.
This New Moon is in fast moving, often pushy and direct Aries, so we can feel more confident and brave, which can help us break through blocks that have kept us held back for quite a long time now. Use this New Moon energy to push past your problems and experience success.
The really good news is this New Moon in Aries is also aspecting the benefic planet Jupiter. This influence brings good luck and happiness. This New Moon supports us when starting new projects or business. But do your research because blocks to meeting success are being removed now. You can easily achieve goals and make wishes come true. As you can imagine this kind of Cosmic energy is rare and isn’t with us all the time so make sure and do something with it!
This New Moon also is a good time for romance and meeting someone new. So make some sort of love connection and take a chance, by going out on first dates or rekindle your current relationship and strengthen the ongoing bond you already have with a lover or partner.
Certain parts of our life that will be affected the most this weekend by these beautiful Cosmic occurrences are money, education, travel, relationships (especially in business), and good fortune and sure random dumb luck! So anything you start has a stronger than usual chance to besuccessful. This is when we end up in the right place at the right time.
During April’s New Moon Weekend from April 9 – 12 many of you will be making important decisions and can attract wealth, abundance, and good luck!
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.
As the Moon swells and grows to Full this week, the stronger its energies are felt. This energy intensifies our emotions, so perhaps you’re already feeling the side effects, as listed below.
Sleeplessness – Insomnia is often an issue during the Full Moon.
Vivid dreams and strong visions
Relationships and romantic issues.
This Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Leo forms an opposition to the Moon in Aquarius. The Sun enters Leo Season (when the Sun shifts into the sign Leo) right around the Full Moon. Its influence helps us tap into our self-confidence, so we strive for individuality under this intense energy. We may not be content with simply being part of a team. We want to lead! The Aquarius Moon teaches us to be individualistic as well, and even though we tend to value our independence, we also value the team, community, and group spirit. All of this is highlighted during the Full Moon.
The emotional Full Moon tends to make people act more irrational. Full Moon’s make us feel off or crazy because it activates our DNA! It’s science, really. People can have sudden outbursts about how they feel and share proclamations that feel fresh and new because these feelings haven’t been rationalized yet.
The Full Moon illuminates our feelings, attitudes, and circumstances that are already happening. Our buried feelings now surface, and our realizations and A-ha moments are often expressed quite dramatically. You may feel pushed to share how you’re feeling out loud! Or you can feel like you’re about to lose it if you don’t share your opinions.
This particular Full Moon is a time of awakening about what others need, as we feel the world’s humanitarian issues much more strongly with the Moon in Aquarius.
The Full Moon is a time when the TRUTH is EXPOSED! Each month during this cycle, we tend to discover certain truths about what’s been hidden, kept secret, regressed, or ignored. As we gain clarity, we can work on those specific wishes or desires. It’s the right time to release and let go of situations, people, or energies that are no longer working in our lives, which helps us make room to Manifest our dreams. Clean out your closets both physically and emotionally!
This Full Moon also creates endings, so during the New Moon cycle (aka Dark Moon), we can start planting seeds of intention for something new to begin in a few weeks. Makes lists, write out what you want to release and let go of in your life and what you want to bring to you. Then close your eyes and feel it! That’s how you Set Intentions with the Full Moon.
Full Moon Extras
Once the Moon peaks in Aquarius on the eve of July 23, 2021, it challenges loving Venus and causes issues in our relationships. Karmic situations may arise, and some will break up! Be cautious about making any life-changing decisions and
This tense energy mixed with Chiron’s Retrograde phase can bring up unresolved emotional pain and trauma. Especially from our childhood or our upbringing. Some of you may feel like you’re being ignored or not getting the attention you deserve, or you may feel like your partners aren’t showing enough affection or love, making you feel taken for granted. Do your best to be kind to one another.
The Full Moon is the “Mother” of the Zodiac, so we may have to deal with issues or wounds centered around our Mother, female role models, or authority figures. There can be challenges with the woman in our lives over the next few weeks, so love your sisters, be it friends or family.
With Neptune Retrograde, the woman we cared for whom are crossed over may pop up in one way or another. Suddenly they might be on your mind or visit you in a dream. But they can get their messages to you more clearly for the next five months under this cycle.
Full Moon Peak Times
EST 10:36 pm
CST 9:36 pm
MST 8:36 pm
PST 7:36 pm
Set your intentions with the Full Moon energies, starting the evening of July 23. Write out what you want to release and let go of what you want to Manifest next in your life. Don’t miss this opportunity to make important changes.
Have a wonderful weekend, Stay Safe & Be Well ~Ruby
Venus, the Goddess of Love, rules over Relationships, Love, and often Money enters the fixed “Fire” Sign of Leo starting on June 26 and runs through July 21.
Our love lives can be magnificent and grand during this cycle. There’s a stronger need for affection and physical connections. Holding down our inner fire or flames of love may be more difficult. It’s time to shine and show your inner light to those you care for and love.
Venus in Leo boosts our love life, so we desire more excitement and playfulness in our relationships. Leo is the sign of self-expression, which is more evident in our love life and financial affairs. We want to be seen and heard as we’re more willing to express our feelings outwardly. We enjoy sharing our opinions more than usual.
But trust and loyalty are more of an important factor with Leo energy involved. So if we care for someone we don’t trust, we might decide to shut down altogether under this cycle. Even though we can express our feelings more freely, we should pay attention to how we are treated by lovers, friends, and family members. Their actions can reveal a whole lot about how they feel.
We may feel more sensual and desirable, taking pride in our love lives now, and we’re usually more helpful and generous with our hearts, resources, time, and money. While Venus is in Leo, we’re generally more warm-hearted, extravagant, and flirty. Love and relationships can be a game that never ends. We tend to think with our “Hearts,” so this energy keeps us in a constant romantic state in our relationships with people period.
However, we may act more demanding or aggressive with our lovers, wanting more affection, attention, devotion, and honesty. We may try to fulfill emotional needs with pleasurable affairs. A stronger desire for instant gratification can lead to intimate affairs with the wrong people. There can be unexpected or unwanted consequences.
As passionate Mars connects to Venus during this cycle, keep yourself in check, they’re forming the “Cosmic Marriage” of the year. Together Venus and Mars, aka the “Cosmic Lovers,” ignite our passions and sex drive, enhancing the Venus in Leo energy.
With Venus in Leo, our love language is expressed more so through our actions and the affections we share. We crave physical touch and strongly desire sexual activity. It can be more difficult to separate lust and sex from love at this time. However, this energy is quite romantic, so it’s a great time to spice up your life with some new romantic adventures with lovers or partners.
Neptune, the Spiritual Guru of the Cosmos, recently turned Retrograde. This influence can amplify our emotions and cause self-doubt, which throws off our instincts and intuition. Neptune Retrograde casts a fog over our better judgment, which is unfortunate since Leo energy is very strong when it comes to following one’s instincts, but our senses and feelings may not be as accurate. Remember to keep this in mind before making any crazy moves like redoing your home or buying something because you think you’re getting a deal. Or when you decide to declare your undying love to someone new or old. Think about things first.
Luckily, Venus in regal Leo builds confidence to feel pride in our relationships and financial affairs. But we can be rather impulsive while looking for love and go after the wrong sort of person. Take your time and think before doing anything foolish with love or money, especially with foggy Neptune Retrograde. We can spend some cash, as retail therapy is quite appealing but that can backfire. We’re more attracted to flashy, expensive items. So be careful about overspending and don’t believe everything you are told or read.
Our desire for attention is strong during the Venus in Leo cycle, especially from our partners and lovers. We rather enjoy being admired, acknowledged, and validated during this cycle. Our ego is especially strong, so things like love, money, and pastimes needs to be more satisfying and pleasing. Desiring what’s grand and big can lead to more spontaneous and bold behavior. We want the best and we can brag and boost about who we are and what we are doing. We tend to have a flair for the dramatic during this cycle, simply for the attention, it brings.
Focus on self-care during this cycle since we are craving to be loved and admired. Take some time to appreciate who you are, start up some self-care rituals, and put them into your daily routines. It’s a great cycle to treat yourself and do some sort of pampering. After all, we can feel like royalty. Practice daily rituals or activities like meditation (from the heart), positive affirmations, or journal-writing. Make little love notes or letters to yourself.
Try to work on building up your self-confidence and knowing you are loved and are worthy of love. Don’t mistakenly rely on someone else to fill the void within yourself just to be validated. Rather fill yourself up with love and compliments, and support your friends and tribe. Treat yourself to some small gifts. It’s ok! You’re worth it. Just don’t break the bank! While Venus is in Leo, we enjoy showing off, so we shower the people we love with attention and gifts. But it’s emotionally satisfying to spoil our lovers and partners.
This energy can be quite powerful, so Venus transiting Leo encourages us to love ourselves and others more deeply, with passion and affection. Because we want the best for ourselves, we may not stop until we get it. So it’s a good time to set boundaries, but our expectations can be set to a higher standard when it comes to love and relationships, as Leo’s energy won’t settle for anything less than someone fabulous and heartfelt.
Rubys Astro Readings Summer Solstice & Cancer (Zodiac) Season 🌟🌕
For All Zodiac Signs 🌟
The Sun shifts into the sign of Cancer, aka Cancer Season, and the Summer Solstice occurs in the North on June 20, 2021, when the days and nights are equal in length in light and dark.
When the Summer Solstice arrives, the Sun is in the protective and sensitive sign of Cancer; the energies tend to slow down a bit. Nevertheless, the Solstices are important because they open energetic doorways and usher in the magic of the Summer Season. These special days allow us to manifest what we want in our lives. The Sun will remain in Cancer until July 22, 2021.
While the Sun’s in Cancer over the next month, we are more focused on our family and home life. The day’s light begins to grow longer, which helps us make memories, which is right Cancers alley. This influence keeps us close to home as we have a stronger need for security with anything related to home or family.
Since we are technically still in Eclipse Season through the end of June, this Full Moon will land under its influence. Eclipses tend to bring out the truth and so do Full Moon’s, so what’s been hidden, repressed, kept secret, or unknown can be revealed. So if you have any skeletons in your closet, you may want to get things out in the open and deal with whatever reactions are coming your way.
It’s also a good time for teamwork, even with the Sun in more private Cancer. If our expectations are unreliable or unrealistic, then we probably will be let down. Try to work at keeping yourself grounded and your thoughts rooted strongly in reality. It’s for the best during this time, especially since we’re under the after shadow period of Mercury in Retrograde, as we wait for Mercury to get back up to its normal pace as it heads in the right direction again. But this alone causes confusion and can make things that much more challenging to navigate through.
The Cancer energies can make us feel sensitive and emotional. Cancer energy also teaches us to be more ambitious like the other Cardinal signs in the Zodiac (Aries, Capricorn, & Libra). Therefore, we’re usually more tenacious about reaching our business and professional goals. It’s important to take care of our social obligations, as activities outside our home will be more successful when we learn how to create a solid family and home base to fall back on. This influence helps us keep our schedules and routines, our home life in perspective.
With the Sun in Cancer, our thoughts naturally turn inward. It’s a great time to reach out to loved ones that feel safe and perhaps plan a very low-key get-together, or maybe finish up any home projects you’ve needed to get done. We are looking for safety and protection, so we want to surround ourselves with what’s secure and familiar. It’s a great time to celebrate the gift of seeing each other again face to face, now that Covid is down in the US. But still, remain safe and cautious.
The shadow side of the Sun in Cancer Season is that the Moon actually rules the sign of Cancer. So we can become a bit lunatic-like under its influence, especially if we’re worn down, emotionally hurt, lonely, or overwhelmed. Our moods can go up and down rather quickly, and we can become moodier with the waxing and waning of the Moon and all her phases for the next month. Monitor the Moon Phases and how they affect you by following my blogs on social media.
Our everyday lives are experienced on a much deeper emotional level with the Sun in Cancer (no matter your Sun sign). We tend to worry about our emotional security and are naturally more concerned with our personal lives. Even if we are interested in what’s happening globally, we want to protect and nurture those close to home more so than usual. So nurturing and taking care of our loved ones and our pet projects becomes more important.
Cancer is the Mother of the Zodiac and a water sign, so this energy affects us emotionally. Things like coziness, closeness, emotional bonding, and sexuality are experienced with more depth at this time. This energy can be quite evident in our everyday lives! We can be more kind, compassionate, caring, and empathic to other’s needs.
But the dark side of this Cancer energy means we can also be more reactive and impulsive when it comes to our emotional connections with people and situations.
Also, with the Sun in Cancer, the general atmosphere is more emotional, so any other Cosmic connections between the Sun and Moon can be extremely intense. But our initial reaction is to take the road less traveled. We will do whatever it takes not to be exposed because we tend to feel more vulnerable, including sidestepping direct confrontation, unless, of course, we are doing the confronting.
If we lose control, we can get a little crazy. Cancer energy, when angered, can be quite over the top and scary because it’s pure raw emotion. This charged-up emotional energy tends to trigger some of our most tender spots, so we can become illogical if we get frustrated or feel picked on. It’s just best not to let ourselves go there, and our emotions take the wheel for the next month. It can prove difficult to be objective or open-minded during this time, as we can be a bit pessimistic in our thinking, especially with Mercury in Retrograde. It’s helpful to keep your thoughts more positive, but you may have to work at it a little more than usual.
We are tapped into the realm of Cancer for the next month. We often feel more powerful when using our emotions with people or experiences, which gives these connections more depth and meaning. Usually, what we do during this time comes from the heart. It’s good practice for us to learn from anyway. Work on being more kind and compassionate while the Sun is in Cancer.
Cook some soul food and find something sweet to eat. Cuddle up with someone you care for, enjoy your Summer, and Happy Birthday, all my beautiful Crabs, Cancers! And happy Summer Solstice!
Saturn Squares Uranus- “Structure meets Rebellion”- For All Zodiac Signs
The 2nd longer-term connection between stern Saturn and shocking Uranus is already underway and peaks on June 14. This influence causes restlessness and high anxiety, so it can be difficult to stick to normal routines and schedules. In addition, there’s a sense of urgency in the air, so the atmosphere can feel chaotic, filled with unexpected shocks and surprises.
The Saturn/Uranus Square is an unusual Cosmic connection, especially a long-term one that repeatedly comes together, such as this one, and all year long, and we are dealing with this unbalanced energy.
Saturn is the conservative and authoritative planet and is in the progressive sign of Aquarius all year long. Uranus is the progressive planet of rebellion and revolution and is in the emotional sign of Taurus all year long!
This connection is rare, so when these two planets clash, their energies can feel oppressive, and we might find ourselves at a crossroads looking at two different paths or missions we need to follow in life. Even if we’re working towards two different goals, we probably will end up with similar results. This energy is the old versus the new. We may have to let go of something to move forward or stick to traditions while starting something new, which can be difficult.
Saturn’s tense Square to Uranus generates friction. As these two planets clash, they create tension between our need for freedom and independence versus our desire for structure and stability. Ideally, if we get creative, we can strike a balance, gain our independence, and simultaneously meet our plans and goals. But this takes work and commitment.
Still, limitations or restrictions are not as easy to deal with as rules will be enforced. We need boundaries set in place to feel more in control and less chaotic. When we attempt to assert our need for individuality, freedom, or originality and try to do things our way, we can be undermined by our own need to keep our lives grounded and secure. It’s a push and pulls kind of energy.
But we may not feel content with conforming, and there can be sudden surprises or unexpected twists and turns that force us to do something differently. This influence can free us from old habits and learned behaviors. So it’s important to be flexible, as we may have to make changes to our plans, especially while Mercury is still Retrograde, through the end of June. This influence can cause even more confusion. Trying to balance starting up something new or different while keeping things agreeable and traditional is challenging.
Any setbacks we experience now are usually only temporary and could could lead us towards new paths or solutions. But this aspect does cause some real frustrations. There can be a difference of opinion, which can feel more problematic than usual, as it blocks progress and causes delays. The people we normally rely on may not be as reliable right now. So we may end up having to do things for ourselves or on our own.
This long-term Saturn Square Uranus transit meeting is the 2nd of three meetings in 2021, with the last one occurring on December 24, 2021.
Beneficial Jupiter shifts into the sign of Pisces on May 14! This lucky cycle makes for quite an exciting time. It’s good to know about the cosmic connections early on so you can take advantage of them. This whimsical energy sets the tone that will last through spring and some of the summer. It’s a time when all of us can receive some sort of luck that’s different or new.
The Zodiac Signs that can have the most luck and benefit from the Jupiter in Pisces influence are the Water Signs; Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio. But Taurus and Virgo can also do quite well, and Virgo’s may get lucky in love this time around. But all the Zodiac Sun Signs can experience a miracle or blessing of some kind as Jupiter bestows its luck and goodness.
Jupiter was actually considered to be the ancient ruler of Pisces before Neptune was discovered! But Neptune is Pisces ruling planet, and Jupiter is Pisces co-ruler. So Jupiter goes well with the sign of Pisces and its energy. This influence brings luck, blessings, and prosperity into our lives. So it’s a good time for Setting Intentions and focusing on future goals. But time-outs are important from time to time, and some serious daydreaming. Remember, our feelings connect us to the Universe, so make sure to ask for the good things during the Jupiter in Pisces cycle. Dream big!
Jupiter is in everyone’s personal Astrology Birth Chart, and depending on what areas of your chart Jupiter is cruising through, it is the part of your life that you see the most gains. But if you don’t see anything happen or you decide not to work with this energy, don’t worry; you’ll get another chance once this transit comes back together, starting at the end of December 2021, where it will stay through mid-May 2022.
But you can take advantage of Jupiter in Pisces cycle in its entirety and reap the rewards for as long as possible if you do some spiritual healing work and ask the Universe for what you want and need in your life. Let Jupiter lead the way and be your guide. It’s the planet of higher learning, knowledge, truth, and adventure. Remember, this exciting influence starts on May 14 and runs through July 28.
May Astro Highlights
Uranus Squares Saturn With the Moon in Aquarius at the beginning of the month and Uranus being Aquarius ruling planet. Whatever challenges you’ve already been dealing with over the last few months might have recently intensified. But this energy might start to disappear as we move away from those problems and towards something new.
Some good days in May are 4, 6, 8 & 9, and 14. There are often better conversations that are clear as we communicate with dignity and respect. This can make a big difference in our lives.
May 2-3 – Venus Sextile Neptune
Making helpful actions brings good energy back to you. This aspect is a potent one because Venus and Neptune both transiting their home signs (Taurus & Pisces) during this cycle, and Venus is exalted or in a higher vibration. This energy promotes positivity, so something good stuff will happen for a whole lot of people.
May 11 – New Moon in Taurus
The New Moon conjuncts the Goddess Black Moon Lilith! This energy tends to bring out the darker side of Lilith, and we have some shadow work to do. This influence produces some interesting energy, that’s for sure. Suddenly, there are more blowups or outbursts, and we can be vicious and use our words to cut someone down to size. And, of course, someone else could play out The Lilith factor in your life. So watch out for difficult situations.
A few days before and after the New Moon peaks, we should keep our distance from those who appear angry or frustrated and from any situation that feels tense or problematic. Now, this is a time to work on your Shadow Self! If you can handle it.
May 23 – October 11 – Saturn Goes Retrograde
Whatever started last February will be reviewed, so you can take this time to revise and rework a project or issue. This Retrograde lasts until mid-October, as Saturn brings a Karmic second chance. There could be a significant event that we should discuss in more detail as we get closer to this time. So I will have more on this soon.
Rubys Astro Readings “Sun in Taurus” April 19 – May 20
For All Zodiac Signs Happy Birthday to all my Bulls! ♉ 🎉
While the Sun’s in Taurus, we may feel more sensual, receptive, stubborn, and determined. This shift causes the energies to slow down, but it can help us to act practical, grounded, and steady, which can be quite helpful, especially with the upcoming Pluto Retrograde cycle starting to form, which is a time we are often made to face our fears. Isolation might actually feel more comfortable for many of you over the next month or so.
We all have the sign of Taurus in our Astrology “Birth” Charts which affects us directly, and not only is the Sun in Taurus for the next month, but so are Mercury, Venus, and Uranus. This infusion of Taurus energy into our lives via the “Stellium” in Taurus forming now is about integrating tradition with evolution. A “Stellium” of planets in Taurus occurs throughout April and part of May. A Stellium is when there are more than three planets in the same sign, and the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are all in the sign of Taurus currently.
With this overabundance of Taurus energy, we can take some time to relax and simply catch our breath. It’s an opportunity to take a deeper look at the events unfolding in our lives so we can handle complicated situations with some good old-fashioned common sense. These energies encourage us to learn how to defend ourselves, resist temptation and love deeper. Love is sensual and more intimate during this cycle. We can learn to appreciate the physical world and all its beauty.
The Zodiac Sign of Taurus is ruled by the Goddess of Love herself, Venus. For better or worse, love is the most powerful energy there is, after all. So we can be fiercely passionate and emotional during this cycle.
One thing about Taurus energy is we feel a stronger need to be more comfortable than usual. Take some time to set up some space to Zen out, get all comfy and cozy for the next month, and grab a blankie and some fuzzy slippers because this is a lot of extra Taurus energy we will be under. Make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out.
This cycle shows us stability and substance. We’re drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not a whole lot of risk-taking going on.
Under the Sun in Taurus, there’s an opportunity to explore what we truly value and who we can depend on. During the Pandemic, we’ve had some time to do some research. Now we can focus on what matters in our material world while working with our spirituality and beliefs. This lovely energy is supportive and can help us balance our spirit, mind, and body. We can experience what it’s like to manifest our physical reality as the seeds of intention we plant take root. It’s a time of harvest and to reap the rewards that are coming to us. Our determination is strong, but we still need to know we are safe and secure during this time.
Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, and using what’s worked in the past, as we like sticking to what’s familiar. We value the folks who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and honor their friendship and loyalty!
As the Sun moves through the sign of the bull, we have an opportunity to see the beauty in life. We’re more focused on the simple pleasures in life and how to feed our senses, which are aroused and highly activated, so we can have a newfound appreciation for things like food, sex, music and entertainment, beauty, and anything pleasurable! Being more repetitive and open to the things that make us feel fulfilled and alive can help us appreciate life and the world better. It’s a time to pause and stop long enough to “smell the roses” rather than be in a hurry and pass things by. Being isolated doesn’t feel as difficult under this energy, so if you are still being cautious and staying in due to Covid, it actually could be more welcoming.
The shadow side of all this Taurus energy forming is we can be more possessive and controlling, especially with our children and partners. We can be extremely stubborn and bullheaded, so it’s important to be willing to hear other people’s ideas and opinions. Check yourself and be mindful of these issues.
While the Sun is in Taurus, we should be making plans and setting goals, ones that are built to last for the long term. Put away something for a rainy day and the future. It’s not a good time to make life-altering decisions. Just plan for now if you can, as mental Mercury will start to slow down in May, yep, you guessed it, and go into its Retrograde cycle!! But will chat about that later!
Enjoy all the beauty life has to offer while the Sun is in Taurus. Discover something beautiful about your life, and find a new appreciation for those you love. Have a wonderful Taurus Season.
The Goddess of Love herself, Venus, is shifting into the Zodiac’s first sign, Aries.
The planet Venus rules over our love lives and relationships, and this can include family, friends, co-workers, and members of our community. Not just lovers. Venus also happens to have a lot of influence over our finances.
It’s important to be thicker-skinned while Venus is in Aries, especially when it comes to our relationships and how we relate to people socially. There is no sugar-coating things under Venus in Aries’ fiery sign, as our words can sting. But we’re not necessarily being petty or mean, just direct. It’s time to lay your cards on the table and say your truth! Our desires are strong, so we express ourselves in spontaneous and enthusiastic ways, especially in love! And you upset the object of your affection, and you can safely bet that you’ll hear about it, as we don’t hold much back during this time.
In the sign of fast-moving Aries, Venus brings fresh new energy into our love lives and financial affairs. This cycle has a way of bringing people together rather quickly, so we are more direct in relationships, both new and old. We often act more impulsive, passionate, extroverted, and bold in our romantic adventures. There’s a stronger desire for constant change in both our romantic and social lives, so we can make friends easily and are quite fond of receiving and giving love and admiration. We can feel more motivated and enthusiastic and be a source of inspiration to lovers, partners, friends, or co-workers. And a valuable resource to our community, as we will do things to help people who are struggling.
“Carpe Diem” is our motto, which means “Seize the day!” While we are under Venus in Aries spell, we don’t worry about the past or bother looking back. Instead, it’s a time to move forward. As every day is new and full of opportunities, so every moment matters.
We can be easily influenced by the opposite sex now (or by someone more masculine than ourselves.) Since it’s a brand new day, this is an opportunity to initiate something. Anything mushy is not as appealing during this time, and we don’t want to deal with thinking about the past; we enjoy the chase and conquest.
But this fiery influence is also about emotional security, so we’re looking for longstanding relationships or love that will last. A relationship has to feel new and fresh, or we can get bored quite easily and end up moving on to the next interesting love interest.
With Venus in Aries, we are more interested in the hunt naturally, especially when it comes to matters of the heart since we feel more bold and courageous! We can be impulsive and impatient in love and financial affairs. Things can heat up fast with the added boost of Aries energy from the Sun and later in April Mercury shifts into Aries. All of this energy keeps things rather interesting.
We can be quite candid when communicating but more reserved about our deeper feelings or emotions. If you’re feeling badly or insecure, you can get aggressive and downright mean, especially if someone isn’t expressing the love you’re showing back or doesn’t give recognition.
If you are already in a long-term relationship, you can use this fiery energy to light some passions back into your relationship. If you’re single, get ready, lots of people will hookup or have sexual relations, but the fires don’t burn forever. Your new hookup can sizzle out fast!
It’s time to move forward, especially if you want a new commitment. But pay attention to what can happen in a new relationship, unless you are just looking for a hookup! Then have fun!
It’s a good time to enjoy the finer things in life. You can show off a little now, so indulge in luxury and extravagance. We can have an easy come, easy go kind of attitude. So you may want to keep an eye on your budget, or you can overspend.
Our desires are strong and expressed more spontaneously and enthusiastically. Try to avoid throwing temper tantrums with your nearest and dearest, and watch yourself for being too harsh or coarse with those you love.
The Sun shifts into firey Aries on March 20, 2021, and officially kicks off the first day of Spring. And the “Spring Equinox” (Vernal Equinox) occurs, which is also the first day of the “Astrological New Year Calendar.”
Aries Season The Sun enters into the sign of fiery Aries from March 20, 2021, through April 19, 2021, and Aries Season begins! But did you know this affects every one of us, no matter your Sun Sign! Happy Birthday to my Aries peps!
With the Sun moving into fiery Aries, we are empowered and awakened. There’s some great stuff on the horizon. It’s a time for New Beginnings, as the Sun’s light slowly takes over the dark. We are more determined and motivated during the Sun in Aries cycle. Still, we should be careful and watch for being impulsive or hasty, as mishaps and mistakes can be made, and accidents can occur. Just remember to take a break from time to time.
Our personal goals become very important, and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done under this new cycle. We are motivated to initiate something by taking the lead and making our own path. Our gut instincts are strong, so we pick up on what’s being communicated under this influence. It’s a good time to listen to our higher-self and pay attention!
The world starts moving at a much faster pace now, and for some, this energy moves almost too fast, so you may have to get used to it. Once mental Mercury (our minds) and Venus (our hearts) shift also into Aries, will be moving even faster! This boost of energy will be strong, especially in love and in things that involve our security and finances.
The Sun shifts into fiery Aries today, and this starts the “Spring Equinox” (Vernal Equinox), which is the first day of the Astrological New Year. There are great things on the horizon with such empowering energy helping us with this new Zodiac cycle. This is a time of new beginnings, as the light of the Sun slowly takes over the dark. The Spring Equinox is when Sun’s time here on planet Earth slowly grows through the Summer Solstice. We get to live more outwardly again as we crawl back out to the land of the living and get outdoors again from the winter season.
Spring is a season of growth and rejuvenation, and this Astrological New Year is urging you to explore new directions. During this time of year, lots of people worldwide celebrate the Spring Equinox with all kinds of interesting traditions and festivities that honor the Goddess of Renewal and the Spring Season. Along with the Earth’s ability to regenerate itself again, this season is obviously very important for many different reasons. It’s a time of awakenings, new beginnings, and positive energy chasing the dark away.
Many people also celebrate this season with religious or spiritual celebrations, but it all stems from the fact that this is, first and foremost, a major “Astrological Event.” This event is about the Sun’s light expanding as it moves from the sensitive waters of Pisces and into more action-packed Aries! This extra sunlight represents the promise of a greater, more warm life-changing energy coming into our lives.
If you’ve had a rough time through the Winter months, with all the stressful Cosmic influences at play and the ongoing Pandemic stress, then consider the Spring Equinox to be just like a calendar New Year! In fact, its energy can be much stronger because it’s an Equinox. Be inspired! It’s an opportunity for growth and a renewed energy coming in to take over the darker winter energies.
May the Sun’s warmth and Spring’s renewed energy bring you new beginnings, ones that lead to your deepest dreams and desires coming true.
MERCURY Enters PISCES…on March 16th and runs thru April 3rd.
For All Zodiac Signs 🌟
Some big Cosmic changes are starting up this week, so the Universe is slowing us down mentally for the time being, and our minds shift into a new way of thinking, andperspectives can suddenly change.
With MERCURY in PISCES, our way of thinking and processing information is more visual, intuitive, and imaginative. We are more attuned to the world emotionally, which changes both our thoughts and how we communicate. Our hunches are more on point, and we can express ourselves with much more imagination. Our decisions are based more on what we pick up intuitively. So during this time, it is suggested we go by how we are feeling, as logic isn’t making as much sense.
With MERCURY in spiritual PISCES, things aren’t going to always be so clear, especially through March 21st with the Sun in Pisces as well. It can be an extremely foggy or fuzzy time. This energy can leave you feeling not only unmotivated but ran down or depressed, as we’re more vulnerable or susceptible to the environment around us. We should watch out for Psychic Vampires or deceptive characters, as they want to take advantage of anyone who looks weak or vulnerable; if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! Don’t believe everything you hear or even see, and stay grounded.
We may feel like we’ve stepped into a different realm or world during MERCURY’S run through PISCES. The best approach is to take it easy, as we can be quite brilliant during this time. It’s just a matter of knowing how to navigate through the fog as well. And with the planet MERCURY our mental health is affected as well. So we must watch ourselves and others for signs of depression, as it has become an epidemic, Lift each other up, and chooses to inspire others during this time.
During this cycle, we tend to know things we can’t really put our finger on. Anything mystical, universal, and eternal can stir our curiosity. It’s more intuitive, so it can be called Psychic, empathy, or even deja vu. It’s just stronger energy now, so learn more about your spirit and tap into this knowingness when you can, no matter what you call it. However, it may be more difficult to pull certain thoughts forward to the front of our minds during this time, as MERCURY is the mind, and PISCES is the unconscious, so we are just in a different place, right now. So NO, you’re probably not losing your mind! It can be hard to remember the little things, and you may feel extremely forgetful.
It’s the best energy to practice any kind of spiritual activity. Find ways to lift your vibrational energy, so get involved in things like meditation, journal-writing, astral travel, guided visualization, yoga, and music. All of these activities can be especially healing under this energy. Just do anything that helps you connect to your spirit during this time, as it can be quite beneficial and help put you on a path to being whole and healthy.
Don’t forget it’s important to watch how you escape under this Piscean influence. We can slip into a very strange place if we aren’t too careful, and addictions can be a real problem as we tend to escape through things like drugs, alcohol, food, the internet, or sexual activities! Remember to stay in the present moment and remind yourself of the reality of any given situation.
If you feel sad or lost, PLEASE reach out to someone! There is always someone who cares. Your life is worth something, even if you don’t understand what that may be.
