By now, most of you have heard all the latest rave about the rare Cosmic Event peaking today. “The Great Conjunction” between Jupiter and Saturn peaks in the sign of Aquarius, which kicks off a new 200 year Era.
Welcome to “The Age of Aquarius!”
Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions happen about every twenty years, and they help change our social and personal direction. But this one is in Aquarius hence why it’s rare.
With both planets in Aquarius’s futuristic energy, new doors of opportunity swing wide open, helping us manifest new ideas and solutions. This energy will usher in new breakthroughs culturally and globally. Our reality and life as we know it will be restructured during this cycle. This energy is a confidence builder, bringing sudden realizations about our own personal power, making it easier to make necessary changes that will change our future.
Anything that has seemed too far out or unconventional, even recently, won’t be considered over the top soon! Years from now, when we look back to this time, we’ll realize what a turning point this time was. This planetary transit is particularly positive for practicing Astrology, Divination (Tarot & Oracle Cards), and the Occult. So basically, most metaphysical practices, including the way we view the Universe, will be more widely accepted and gain more importance. The New Age has arrived!
If you’ve been feeling stuck and need to move forward with a new project or path in life, this is the time to go for it! Thoughts tend to take form and manifest quite quickly in this energy, so make sure and keep yourself focused on the positive things in life. Concepts and ideals can become something tangible and useful. Hope and faith, especially in ourselves, can be restored as we build plans that bring real benefits.
We have already been experiencing a major struggle between the old behaviors versus the new on a global level. A New Era themed in air sign energy has a more intellectual and energetic feel to it. This influence breakups our established orders as we know them. So anything structured such as government, relationships, careers, and ways of teaching will change drastically! Aquarius energy is extremely open-minded, so thinking way outside the box is more acceptable.
With Jupiter and Saturn both in Aquarius, some dramatic changes will start to occur in our lives. What sets the tone for sudden and shocking changes, is the planet Uranus forms an aspect with Jupiter around the same time as The Great Conjunction!This strong energy brings sudden surprises, unpredictable changes, and events that affect our future. It’s best to be cautious throughout January under these influences, but we should expect the unexpected!
When Jupiter and Uranus meet up, its influence eliminates old social structures, bringing new challenges and opportunities. This aspect can give us the chance to take a deeper look at what we need to release or let go. It creates the energy and space for something new to come into your life.
All year long, these planets have been hanging out together in many different ways while in the sign of Capricorn, so we’ve already been experiencing its powerful energy. These two planets will not meet up again under Earth Signs for decades to come.
As soon as the ‘The Great Conjunction” starts to move forward, the planet Jupiter gets a jumpstart and finally gets the chance to move past both Saturn and Pluto, the malefic planets. Jupiter has been stuck all year long between these two plants, basically blocking it from handing out its normal gifts and blessings! Jupiter will shine once again now and be the Great Benefic planet; this makes it easier for Jupiter to hand out opportunities and luck to everyone.
Mercury, the planet of communication, has been burning through Sagittarius, the most upbeat, extra sign in the Zodiac for the past three and half weeks. You might have felt more optimistic, open-minded, and outspoken over the last month with Mercury in Sagittarius. But this has made it more difficult to focus on the details or use our words as carefully.
Mercury moves into Capricorn on December 20th, giving you a stronger sense of mental fortitude, confidence, and a hardworking attitude. Mercury, is the planet that rules over our way of thinking, and thought processes. It’s that time again, to be practical about what works or doesn’t. Since our thinking slows way down, we can be more serious during this cycle, but really we are just more focused.
It’s a great period to seek out people you know who are experienced or wise, especially if they’ve accomplished something you want to achieve. These mentors or teachers can give out some valuable advice, and even may connect you with the right people who can help you achieve your goals in the long run.
Working harder becomes our motto again, especially with the Sun’s shift into Capricorn as well on December 21st. Just remember you’ll reap the rewards later from any time or energy you put into getting things done now.
With Mercury in Capricorn, our thinking is much more systematic, and our focus is more practical and sober. Under this influence, it’s much easier to concentrate on the task at hand. But our conversations can bring up reality checks, as we focus more on business and practical matters. Our thought processes and patterns of communication are more logical, orderly, and organized now. It’s just easier to sort out what is relevant and essential to KEEP THINGS REAL, as we speak no-nonsense, and being precise and cautious comes more naturally. However, we need to be wary of becoming too rigid with our thoughts and words, we can appear cold, cut-off, or harsh to others, and there is a fine line between being real and pessimistic.
The Earth Signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn can thrive under this influence, but the Cardinal Signs Aries, Cancer, and Libra might struggle to keep up until Mercury enters Aquarius on January 8, 2021.
Now that Mercury is in Capricorn, Mercury is asking you to take life a little more seriously. We’ve learned so much while Mercury was in Sagittarius, and now you’re able to use that information and knowledge under this cycle.
Rubys Astro Readings Holiday Eclipses & The Great Conjunction
There are two life Changing Eclipses over the holiday season in 2020. They are in the Signs of Gemini and Sagittarius, but affect each and every one of us! Eclipses are always about endings, so they often create shifts in our lives that are necessary. The part of your life these energies affect depends on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart they are cruising through, and whatever points they activate will affect your life through June of 2021.
The first Eclipse on November 30 is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Gemini. The second Eclipse is a New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 14 in Sagittarius.
Babies who come into the world during the Full Moon Eclipse through December 21 arrive during the Winter Solstice time. These souls will be wonderful teachers for their generation. They can end up making some amazing contributions to the world. Also, the babies who are born around the Eclipse can end up being trendsetters or important in one way or another and often are quite popular.
Eclipse Information Full Moon Eclipse: November 30 in Gemini.
This Eclipse affects all the Signs in the Zodiac, but especially Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo or anyone with those signs in prominent parts of their Birth Charts. As I mentioned, Lunar Eclipses bring about endings, so the Solar Eclipse in December is when something new begins.
Full Moon Eclipses are a time of completion. Answers randomly show up, especially about problems you’ve been dealing with or working on since last spring. This lunation is a time when truths are revealed, so pay attention to your dreams starting now. We can be quite emotional during this Full Moon Eclipse, as it shines a light on what has been hidden, regressed, or kept secret!
Solar Eclipse December 14 in Sagittarius
Solar Eclipses can bring sudden events that cause disruptions. There can be chaos and crisis like moments that come out of nowhere. However, there can be good effects from them as well.
A Solar Eclipse is basically a very powerful New Moon. It’s a good time to make plans for the future. Set your intentions and make out those Wish Lists. This Eclipse will affect Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo in a big way. But of course, it affects all the Signs of the Zodiac.
If this Eclipse happens to impact your life strongly in one way or another, and usually, this is more positive, but not always. If your birthday happens to fall around or on the day of the Eclipse on December 14, it’s going to be very strong and can create big changes.
Eclipse Update Eclipses occur every 19 years. So the solar and lunar Eclipses occured at the same points in 2001. You might want to think about what was happening back then. There can be some similarities occurring between now and then, and you could heal something in a big way.
You just have to remember that an Eclipse magnifies things, especially that are related to the house it goes through in your Astrology Birth Chart. So those particular areas of your life are going to demand more of your focus, attention, and energy. This transit will last from this holiday season until next June! Expect new doors to open and for big changes to affect our lives, and hopefully, it helps lead us to new paths that give us better opportunities.
The Great Conjunction As we inch towards the end of the year, we enter the peak of a major Cosmic event. The Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in Earth signs ends a 200 year Era.
Under these earthy energies, our focus shifted to material security and resources. And we tend to be more resistant to change, which we’re already experiencing, are the old ways versus the new on a global level. But this is about to end, and a new Era based on Air Sign energy is creating a breakup of our established orders.
The Great Conjunction occurs in December. Jupiter and Saturn both move into the Air sign Aquarius next month; this will bring some dramatic changes to our lives. What really sets the tone for sudden and shocking changes is that the planet Uranus is also forming an aspect with Jupiter around the same time. So will need to be mindful and careful during December and January, so pay attention to your surroundings.
Jupiter and Uranus come together and help eliminate old social structures but bring new challenges and opportunities with them. As we inch closer to the Great Conjunction and the Jupiter/Uranus aspect, it can be very important to ask yourself what you can release or should let go of to help create the energy and space for something new in your life.
This Cosmic shift is very important and has been forming all year long, so we have already been experiencing the powerful energy of the Great Conjunction! It will not come back together again under Earth Signs for decades.
There’s a New Moon occurring soon, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish ListsIntentions can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.
During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have, so we can work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next. We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, or even love! It really doesn’t matter, but we have to take an action, both, physically and spiritually, together, to make it really happen and stick! And no, not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, so be patient. But it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.
Also, just sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!
At least by “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL! And this work, just works! It’s that simple.
The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of New Beginnings when you can recharge your goals with new energy. During the New Moon, we often experience some sort of major “energy shift.”
Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:
1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.
2. Share your Intentions with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.
3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. For example, taking even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.
4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.
So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?
Follow the Steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear Your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do any New Moon work. Think about where you are going to do this work, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies! Maybe say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your Guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up the special space you are working in with the energy of light, love, and protection. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.
Step Two: Set the atmosphere
Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone, just make sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, and peaceful.
Step Three: Setting Intentions
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.
Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life, and be detailed about what you want to see happen next in your life, and what energies you’re willing to work with.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to change and create?
Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing too much on the how, why, and when’s around how you will get what you want! Instead, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to FEEL. See the end result! Only see the ultimate ending and again what it feels like when you receive what it is you are choosing! What you see in your mind’s eye, so don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make. Just allow the Universe to shoulder the burden for you once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest. Have some faith in something. Rule # One is always energy follows thought, it will come to you in one way or another, or you’ll be put at least on a path towards your goals.
Step Four: Visualize
It’s time to visualize what you have written. Close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. Repeat this about 4 or 5 times. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you are actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, or driving that new car. Just don’t think it folks, make sure and FEEL IT, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!
Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next month, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey, so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe or Moon thank you in advance.
You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good, and they actually could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work so you can clearly understand what the Universe is trying to show you!
Here we go again! Those two dreaded words are once again upon us, as “Mercury Retrograde” starts on June 18th and runs through July 12th!
Mercury Retrograde is usually quite annoying to most people as it causes communication and technology breakdowns, and it can bring delays with travel and shipments. However, this isn’t one of my normal anti-Mercury Retrograde write-ups, as this particular backward cycle of Mercury can likely be somewhat of a good influence as well. I know it’s an interesting turn of events! But rather than just being mischievous the trickster planet, Mercury might bring in some luck for some folks, as it makes a strong connection to the star, Sirius! So even as annoying as Mercury Retrograde can be at least this time around it can bring some success and wealth as well.
This Mercury in Retrograde is in the sign of Cancer, (June 21st-July 22nd) so it does tend to affect those with Cancer astrological placements in their personal “Natal Astrology Charts” a bit more strong, but it runs much deeper than that and affects all of us no matter what Signs we have.
Now there will also be challenges with this Mercury in Retrograde cycle as it’s aspecting the Eclipse on June 21st. The first part of the actual Retrograde cycle starts on the 18th can be bumpy folks, with travel issues that include driving or flying especially. There will be delays and cancellations of all kinds in all situations. And computer and online problems that affect both personal and business can be a really big issue this go around.
Three Phases of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle:
June 2 to 18 – Pre-Shadow period before Mercury goes Retrograde, as it slows down
During this Shadow phase, you get a sample of what part of your life this particular Mercury Retrograde will affect
June 18 to July 12 – Is the Actual Retrograde Phase
During the actual Retrograde phase, we deal mainly with miscommunications and annoying technical glitches, this time I think we’ll see a whole lot of folks get visited from both friends and lovers from their past, as Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon and this brings up our past experiences to review and helps us tap into our unconscious mind.
July 12 to 26 – The after Shadow phase that lasts until Mercury leaves Retrograde.
The after Shadow period is when things get wonky again at first, as we slowly get back to normal, at least we start to feel like we are mentally moving forward again and eventually back to some kind of normalcy.
There are certain things we should be doing during a Mercury Retrogrades cycle, like starting something over or finishing up projects we’ve already started. Remember Mercury represents the mind and how we perceive information, so when in Retrograde it is a time to go back over things and reassess our lives. We should revise plans and personal goals perhaps, revisit anything that needs to be worked on, reconnect with loved ones, and business contacts, and redo just about anything if it helps, and usually, it does during this time. Refresh your life by doing things over again, and ask lots of questions. Otherwise, Mercury can be one giant headache for ya, especially if you try to push forward with brand-new plans, it just doesn’t usually work out so well.
One of the best things you can do during any Mercury Retrograde cycle is to write things down, take notes, and do anything you can to remember, taking these simple actions can make this whole Mercury in Retrograde experience so much easier to get through and navigate. These little mistakes and going back and doing things over can lead to it being a time of growth and personal development.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets, as is happening for a reason. 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. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and take a break from our overloaded plugged-in lives. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycles energy takes hold is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
Here’s a basic list of Do’s and Don’t that can help you get through this rather confusing time. Make sure to share this Blog with others so they can be enlightened and understand all about Mercury Retrograde time.
What Not To Do duringMercury in Retrograde:
– Don’t start brand new projects
– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks, and tense people or situations.
– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
– Avoid Travel
– Do Not take misunderstandings personally. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To Do duringMercury in Retrograde:
– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
– Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
– Re-visit anything that needs fixing or even if you have a question.
– Re-connect with folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and data that needs saved, it’s best to do this during the Shadow Phases.
– Re-organize your daily routines.
– Reflect and practice spiritual and energy work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working in your life, especially in your intimate relationships.
With Mercury in Retrograde cycles, we just have to be prepared is all, and it’s important to remember during this particular Mercury in Rx phase to do whatever it takes to REMEMBER things. These cycles are not meant to be as aggravating as they seem to be. In a perfect world, if we were to just take some time off from our everyday routines, (like we have been forced to do with COVID going around) it would be a much easier time to navigate. However, if you choose to go against this cycle’s natural flow you will probably get stressed out by something. It is a time to pause and reflect, as this helps us gain new perspectives and maybe realize something we had missed before. This cycle gives us the opportunity to fix things and get them right or the way we want them. Get prepared and try to do something to keep your mind busy during this Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it can help you get through it must more quickly.
Have a safe and easy going Mercury in Retro time folks, ~Ruby
On June 18th, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, and values rises once again as the “Morning Star” for the next 6 to 7 months.
Venus was shining brightly in the sky, and then last fall she was barely visible around dusk time as the “Evening Star.” But now Venus is making a come back! Slowly she is becoming the “Morning Star”, and on June 18th we shall slowly see her goddess self as she sends positive vibes down to planet Earth. She now will appear where the Sun rises in the East, as the “Morning Star,” whereas before she had shown herself as the Evening Star where the Sun sets in the West.
When Venus is in the role of “Morning Star”, her energy affects us differently. We can feel more masculine, (no matter your gender) aggressive, passionate, and dominant in our loving or intimate relationships, and also when dealing with our finances. During this cycle, we will stand up for what we believe in when it comes to love, money, and pleasure.
Over the last few weeks, (end of May into June) as Venus made her transition from “Evening Star” to the “Morning Star” she went into hiding, and we have been without her potent loving vibes for a while now. Without this source of loving energy in our lives, many of you have been feeling unloved, abandoned, and not supported. We lost that connection to our hearts and look at all that has happened in the world. Granted this is not the only reason these global events have been happening, but if you think about all the chaos and hurt, resentment, and pain that has come up in her absence in the sky, it is very interesting. Being under the shadowy side of this energy, there has been much sadness, grief, and emotional pain. Now there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel! In just a few days, we will be able to see her once again shining brightly in the sky, and at first it will be a few hours before the Sun comes up.
As the “Morning Star,” Venus works hard to help our relationships grow and repair themselves if at all possible. She slowly tries to put things back together again, but there will be challenges throughout the month of June. She has to get her energy out there and deal with all the Retrograde planets including her, as Venus is also in retrograde currently, and then there is Eclipse Season. Being visible as the “Morning Star”, she shows us that we cannot avoid the dark and must learn how to walk in the light again, we must embrace our darker or “Shadow” side of human existence, which we all are part of in one way or another. As we all carry around some sort of shadow or darker side as well. This is not something you get rid of but something you learn to manage and deal with. We must fully embrace all of who and what we are and are authentic-self must emerge. Just like Venus herself, we all fall into dark periods at different times in our lives but this doesn’t last forever, we must continue to handle these harder times because we have the strength to do so.
Now that Venus has shifted we can see her influence over our personal lives, and global affairs and events. After June 25th, we can start to see our relationships slowly heal as folks start to get along a little bit better. Many of you will also see your financial affairs start to run better. There might actually be some peace in the world after all the violence and terrible events that have taken place since early June. As Venus is shining brightly again and her presence is known, she can send much love to Earth once again.
There is going to be some difficult paths we must follow to heal, but as her influence starts to spread out and grows stronger once again throughout June and especially into July time, we will start to see and feel it! If you have lost that loving feeling for others, and feel detached and separated in some way, Venus is going to be working extra hard once again at bringing those feelings back.
As the “Morning Star”, Venus sends out strong messages that it’s time to shine our own personal light that we carry within out to the world. Venus in this position will slowly but surely start to raise our energy levels, it’s a great boost we need that can help us feel more confident and powerful, especially in love and concerning money or business. She wants us to honor the light we carry within so we can handle any obstacles or challenges that come our way. As she rises once again in the morning, look up to her and honor your most sacred and loving self! And remind yourself you are worth it, and that you are loved and you deserve to feel that way all the time for now on.
Here’s to peace, love, and happiness for all of you, ~Ruby
Rubys Astro Readings 🌟 First Part of June Astro Update For All Zodiac Signs 💫
There is so much going on in the world right now, I honestly didn’t have time to write all of June’s Astro Updates. But here is some info about the first half of the month, especially during the first week. ~Ruby
The first half of June 2020 can be a bit confusing, as underlying tensions seem to be coming out to be dealt with. Even though around the 3rd we could have some lovely things to say with the Sun/Venus Conjunction, a rather tense aspect when the Sun squares heated up Mars in Pisces can bring up and out the truth in our relationships, and that might not be so pretty. But at least we won’t have a problem being honest with each other.
The Sun conjuncts Venus from the 3rd to the 5th, and this might just be a welcome reprieve from all the hostility and anger of the past week. It won’t last too long folks due to the Full Moon energies and all the other cosmic connections underway. But we might just be able to find some light at the end of the tunnel, as our inner light gets to shine once again and take over the darkness. Use this time to find some inner peace within and hold onto that feeling, and hold onto that energy for as long as you possibly can!
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is also a Lunar Eclipse on the 5th, and this means it’s truth-telling time. So if you’ve got secrets you may want to come clean now before this energy hits. When the Full Moon gets into an intense square with both warlike Mars and delusional Neptune, our discussions may get too real, and our fantasies are called out for the illusions they are. It’s a time when mistakes are pointed out, and some folks may not be able to handle it. When Mercury forms a tense square to wounded healer Chiron at the same time self-doubt can kick in, and we can lose our confidence. During this time, it’s best to not believe everything you hear, read, or think. Depression may also set in, so make sure to keep communicating the way the Sun in Gemini intended, and talk to someone about your sadness.
From June 1st through the 10th, tensions will be high, especially when the Sun forms a tense square to Mars on June 6th. These influences are a test and we can be challenged by competitors and enemies. Basically, if things don’t calm down with the violence associated with the protests, a lot of people will feel like taking matters into their own hands and decide to come out and join the crowds, while hoping that things will calm back down. People are more than ready to take a stand now, but not allow their towns or businesses to be destroyed at the same time. The National Guard might just get called in, but only if it goes this far. The aspect coming together on June 6th will be felt during the first week of June and it is a build of angry energy. It could be from the lockdown due to the Virus, and the anger folks are carrying around from the events in Minneapolis last week. If you feel resentful or angry within yourself, try to do what you can peacefully, it’s ok to go to a March but don’t destroy property. Do not allow this rage to consume you. If we are not at ease within ourselves often the body will take on disease of some kind, so remember that.
As Mars transits through the sign of Pisces axnd the Sun in Gemini, there can be more lies, deceptions, and betrayal that comes out. Things are not what they seem and the media is not being completely honest on what they are reporting, go figure! There is a lot more happening behind the scenes with this crisis in the US. So there is more to the story! Life will not be peaceful during this time, so it’s important to find that space of peace within yourself during these times. There is a lot of emotional unrest with the planet of War, Mars being in the sign of Pisces the sign of healing over the next week.
On June 11th the Sun squares foggy Neptune, and motivated Mars is conjunct Neptune a few days later. This energy can make us feel like escaping from our normal routines, and doing something new or different. Otherwise, we can feel helpless and anxious. So don’t be discouraged if things don’t turn out exactly as you might have liked. Take a break and get away for a little while.
On June 18th, mental Mercury in Cancer (it has been slowing down and getting ready) as it goes into its Retrograde phase. So except for Mars, all the personal planets will appear to be moving backward through the Zodiac and be in their Retrograde phases. It is a good time to think about all that has happened over the last few months because my goodness has there been a lot! This is a time to go within yourselves and review all that you have been through and feeling. Work on healing yourselves and your hearts.
Rubys Astro Update A Full Moon & Eclipse Season Begins
For All Zodiac Signs
Friday afternoon on June 5th, 2020 the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Sagittarius, at 15 degrees.
Full Moon Peak Times by Time Zone
3:12 PM EST 2:12 PM CST 1:12 PM MST 12:12 PM PST 8:12 PM London
Full Moons are about relationships and a Lunar Eclipse pushes us to look more deeply at our needs, lacks, and wants. This help us balance the Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun in Gemini energies. Sagittarius represents the higher mind, and Gemini the lower mind. Sagittarius energy is all about the adventure and thirst for knowledge, and ideas that help us expand our minds, as it teaches us to listen more to our intuition and to think in a bigger and broader way. Gemini energy is more interested in the here and now, and can help us to feel more comfortable with where we are in the present moment, in our own community and neighborhood. This Sagittarius energy wants us to explore and go beyond our normal boundaries.
Striking a balance between these Sun and Moon energies can be quite helpful during the Full Moon cycle. The Lunar Eclipse is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. With these energies building up inside of us, now is the time when the Cosmos is pushing for us to let out our emotions. Later on, once this all is done, we will understand more, but for now, it can be extremely difficult to just not express our feelings, as they need to be let out.
There can be an inner crisis of consciousness, and a moment where we suddenly are made aware of a part of our lives we just have not been happy with. This influence allows us to explore what we need emotionally. This can be quite a challenging time for relationships, as they are either broken down or made even stronger. Whatever happens, we can feel quite emotionally charged up so this can lead to some Full Moon drama! Full Moon’s are a time of truth, and we can experience some sort of Ah-Ha moment, or epiphany and suddenly be made aware of something, often this about what is lacking in our lives. This knowingness or understanding can help to motivate us to take some positive actions, although the path getting there can be chaotic.
The Moon is involved in several challenging connections during its Full Moon phase. Like a tense square to fiery Mars in Aries, so our anger and passion can be fueled by this energy, and if we get emotional we can get quite upset.
The Moon is also opposite the planet of love & values, Venus in its Retrograde phase and Gemini. This can be a challenging time for couples and relationships, starting June 3rd through June 7th. Lessons are being handed out to even the strongest of relationships. It’s a time of patience with both lovers and friends. So if you are already committed to any relationship, be it personal or professional and you’ve already been having problems, this Eclipse can cause sole problems. Now for some folks, it can potentially end a relationship, usually, it’s the ones that need to be done in the first place.
On a global level anger can escalate quite quickly, and we can experience feeling angry and even sort of sad. There can be higher rates of crime and violence during this time. The weather can get rather pumped up as well, because whenever there’s is a lot of frustration among the masses, usually, the weather starts to get destructive! So there might be bad storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and even earthquakes. The Eclipse influence brings up these angry feelings to the forefront, especially if we’ve been sitting with these feelings and just brewing for a while.
If you notice you are on the edge of losing your cool, find a healthy way to release that energy! We still are going to be under the Full Moon influence, which is a time to let go and release the feelings and things that are no longer working. Also, you can do some things to help keep you calm, by shifting your focus to things like exercise, meditation, and energy healing work like Reiki, and most importantly self-care. It’s all too easy to lose our tempers with a loved one, or we may end up having to deal with someone else who’s upset and take on their energy! If you’re out and about just remember people are already on edge. But through Astrology, you know, and that is a powerful thing, my friends. Just by understanding what’s is happening and why can make such a huge difference in how you handle and work through this energy because you already know.
Love Can Be Strange
The Lunar eclipse also opposes lovely Venus. Pay attention folks, Venus is in Retrograde currently, so you should be careful whom you get romantically involved with if you are single.you can end up lowering your standards if you get too lonely and get involved with someone who’s toxic and not a true soul mate, but a life lesson instead!
Also, Venus in Retrograde often brings back old friends and lovers, this is to work some sort of Karma out usually, so you both can have closure. This doesn’t mean because an ex-lover shows up that you are destined to be together, usually, it’s quite the opposite. But a very soulful meeting can happen, and some of you might find a soul mate as well. Be extra careful and commit to nothing until after Venus and Mercury are out of Retrograde.
The Cosmic lovers, Venus & Mars are also in a tense position together. During the Eclipse this can amp up conflicts, anger, and impulsive behavior! Women are more susceptible to losing their cool and getting irritated than the men right now.
During the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, we need to try to make some extra time and effort to promote peace and harmony no matter what we are doing. But that good feeling energy out there, filled with love and compassion. Being patient can be quite important, as it helps stop frustrations from growing out of control.
Focus on one task at a time, and concentrate all your energies on it, rather than falling into the heavier energies of the Eclipse as it can take up most of your time and energy. Staying busy doing tasks will help you work through your frustrations, which makes it a good time to organize your life, declutter, and make space so that better energies can come into your life.
All about Eclipse Season
During an Eclipse Season, there are two or three Eclipses, and it lasts for around 36 days. During this time the Full Moon’s are part of the Lunar Eclipse and the New Moon is part of a Solar Eclipse. This Eclipse Season starts on June 1st and ends on July 8th. These energies will be felt most during this time. There are three Eclipses this time around,
June 5th – Full Moon in Sagittarius – Lunar Eclipse
June 21st – New Moon in Cancer – Solar Eclipse
July 5th Full – Moon in Capricorn Lunar Eclipse
If you happen to have a Birthday fall during or around the Eclipses, this next year can be full of interesting twists and turns and full of exciting changes. Eclipse Seasons are always full of strange energy, as out of the ordinary experiences just seem to happen and often there are some shocking surprises along the way as well. But remember good surprises occur as well. These influences can put us on a path we have no choice but to go down, but these are strong lessons we must learn to grow from. And usually, they are a necessity to help us become whom we are meant to be. Eclipses are interesting as they don’t seem to have any rhyme or reason to them, some folks can experience life-changing events while others experience nothing different or out of the ordinary. This is not about luck or curses, it because each of us has our own unique experiences on this journey through life, and the energies of the Eclipses are going to affect us the way they were destined to.
Eclipse Season is usually unpredictable, this energy can bring us to our breaking point as the pressure builds. We may have strong reactions that we didn’t even see coming or expect, so stay mindful of how you are reacting, and sometimes no reaction is the best statement you can make. Many of you will experience some sort of random Ah-Ha moment. Often both situations are happening all at once. Eclipses are intense and often they put us through some seriously challenging lessons that usually would take a much longer time to go through, so we are being thrown into the pressure cooker and expected to rise above any challenges we face. Things like relationships that you might have thought were going to work out, suddenly end fast, or a project you have been working on for a very long time that was about to take off suddenly has issues, and is held back now to get something fixed. The bottom line is even if we feel like we have everything all worked out, this Eclipse energy can leave us feeling chaotic and out of control if we let it.
However, don’t worry and fear this upcoming Eclipse Season, because the change that is being thrust upon us needs to happen for a reason, so it will in one way or another. Destiny is taking a hand and fate is in control. Even though this first Eclipse Season of the summer can be challenging at times, it also can bring in some much-needed positive changes, especially after it’s over it occurs.
Have a Blessed Full Moon Be Well & Stay Safe ~Ruby
The Sun shifted into communicative Gemini on May 20th, 2020, and transits this sign through June 21st.
This influence usually brings about change and some disruption. One thing is for sure, we can struggle with feeling restless, nervous, or anxiety-ridden. The best thing you can do for that is to stay mentally and physically active! This is a chatty, communicative kind of energy, so lots of interesting conversations seem to occur during this time. But there’s is another side to Gemini’s twining energy that can have us feeling more withdrawn and reflective, so we can enjoy our alone time as well.
The sign of Gemini rules over things like friendship, and with Venus the Goddess of Love, also in Gemini and in Retrograde currently, we might meet up with certain people who have inspired us to be more romantic, beautiful, and artistic in the past. Allow these muses to help you move forward, but don’t get lost in your feelings, as the fantasy will eventually break and reality will come back in once Venus is out of Retrograde.
This highly stimulating energy can have our heads spinning with quick and fleeting thoughts. But since we thoroughly enjoy communicating during this time, and sharing ideas and opinions, we may reach out to others more so than usual. It’s a time to network and mingle, but remember social distancing. Our minds are moving quicker than usual, as our thoughts jump from one subject and task to the next. So stick to activities during this cycle that involves communicating like emails, paperwork, messaging or phone calls. It’s great energy for multi-tasking.
The shadowy side of this Gemini energy is we can be more easily distracted, and it can be more difficult to focus, so we can be unreliable without meaning to be. We may have to keep redirecting ourselves or others if we want to get things accomplished. We can be very hard working especially mentally, so we can burn out fast. Try to take breaks when you can and remember you can’t get it all done at once. Make lists, use Alexa or Google Home to set reminders, you’re going to need this help, as this can be an extremely busy Gemini Season, even more so than usual.
Mercury and Venus In Gemini – The reason why this is an incredibly busy Gemini Season, is because not only is the Sun in Gemini but so is relationship-ruled Venus and soon cerebral Mercury! This is our core-self, ego, heart, and mind all wrapped up in the Gemini energy. We can be sidetracked and scattered, as we readbetween the lines and feel the energies all around us.
Mercury rules our way of thinking, so our thoughts will move just that much more quickly over the next three and a half weeks. Under these influences doors of opportunity may swing wide open, but also they can slam shut! Problems can be easier to figure out because our empathy for others is so strong, and our psychic hunches are on point! Sincecommunicating is usually so much stronger during this cycle there will be a lot of information shared, so just don’t tell everyone all your business. Knowledge and diversity are more important at this time, and we can feel more sociable, intellectual, and curious under these influences. But our energies can scatter as a direct result of our curiosity and awareness. Being more communicative, and open to having conversations can lead to opportunities that we normally wouldn’t get a chance to discover.
If you feel overwhelmed by these energies your moods can change suddenly, and go up and down. Even if we feel good and are active, as we are still prone to nervousness and excitability. This can lead to feeling more frustrated, so we can blow up in anger quite quickly! And with Mars moving into Aries soon in June, (the planet that rules our motivation levels, passion, and anger) we can get riled up fast, so take some time to get calm if you get frustrated over something.
It’s a good time for gathering and processing information. Read, write, research, and take care of business or run errands. Make only short-term deals and no long-lasting commitments, because we are supposed to be just collecting information for now, as it can be important or valuable down the road. It’s also important to take breaks and get physical activity. This can help our minds relax, so we can get rest. A lot of folks suffer from insomnia and have issues with vivid dreams, both awake and asleep under such strong Gemini energy. Be social and look for different and interesting people to hang with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles.
The relationship planet Venus enters the sign of communication Gemini today, where it will transit for much longer than usual due to its upcoming Retrograde phase! Venus is in Gemini all the way through August 7th. During this time Venus will go Retrograde in Gemini from May 13 to June 25.
With Venus in Gemini, our curiosity is strong, and this can motivate us to get more involved romantically and socially with others. Variety and change are the main themes of this influence, it’s a time when we feel more sociable, interested, engaged, and especially communicative in our relationships and around anything to do with our finances.
We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the linesin any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity.
Under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity both, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow, this keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects ourlove lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky. But due to the Virus going around, we need to be extra careful about meeting people in person for the time being, and this might be extremely challenging.
Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies. But we can feel very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time. So you may want to be extra cautious with taking on lovers, friends cans family members emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks! This is going to be extra challenging as well, since we are in the middle of a Pandemic right now. We need to keep a degree of compassion going to help those in need, but be able to stay in our own power and not meltdown, so we can take care of those we need us!
It is a good time to connect intellectually with others, but especially in our intimate relationships and with our partners, as we uniquely feel each other’s energies. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep things above the surface which can be helpful during this hard time.
Emotionally we can be somewhat detached or distant, but we want to enjoy ourselves. When it comes to love we are more attracted to someone’s mind, so words are usually how things spark up between two people. We just bond with people more on a mental level, and we respect good conversations and intelligent work. But we can be quite picky when it comes to showing our affections and enjoying simple pleasures.
This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky with the people we meet up with, and not just get it on with anyone who’s willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore. And remember social distancing folks.
Venus also rules over money it finances, and there are two sides to the sign of the twins, so Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We can be cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like with movies, books, apps online, music, and any writing materials. So even when money is low we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend. Communication is key under these energies.
The Sun shifts into the sign of Aries on March 19, 2020 and it’s the official first day of Spring as the “Spring Equinox” (Vernal Equinox) occurs, which is also the first day of the Astrological New Year!
Aries Season The Sun will be in the sign of Aries from March 19, 2020 through April 19, 2020 And Aries Season begins! But did you know this affects each and every one of us, no matter your Sun Sign. With the Sun moving into this fiery but also empowering energy, we are awakened and there can be some great things are on the horizon. This is a time of new beginnings, as the light of the Sun slowly takes over the dark. We are more determined and motivated under the Sun in Aries cycle, but we should be careful and not impulsive or hasty.
Our personal goals become very important, and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done under this new Zodiac cycle. We are motivated to initiate something by taking the lead and making our own path. We notice our gut instincts more under this influence, so it’s good time to listen to them and pay attention! We are all going to be moving at a much faster pace now, and for some folks, this might be a lot faster than what they’re used to.
Spring Equinox Spring is the season of growth and rejuvenation, as this Astrological New Year is urging you to explore new directions. During the Spring Equinox the energies can be extremely potent. This is the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the energetic turning point from one season to the next. This is when the sunshine finally starts to grow through the Summer Solstice. We get to live more outwardly again, as we crawl back out to the land of the living, and get to spend more time outdoors once again and winter slowly fades away.
During this time of year many people around the world celebrate the Spring Equinox with all kinds of interesting old traditions and festivities to honor the Goddess of Renewal or Spring. Along with the Earth’s ability to regenerate itself once again, this season is obviously very important for many different reasons. It’s a time of awakenings, beginnings, and positive energy chasing the dark of night away. So we need this more than ever!
Ask for Changes As the seasons change, a gateway opens where we experience the light and dark. This makes for a great time to notice just what energies you want to draw to you. And it’s a time to think about what you want to manifest in your life next. Of course we all want to be healthy and have lots of money, but this is a time when we should get more detailed when making our “Intentions” List. So we can start setting powerful intentions or making out Wish Lists, and so some healing energy work.
So get comfortable and take a breathe, and ask the Universe or whatever it is you believe in to bring in what you need and choose. And get a little detailed about it what you want to experience. Ask them to put you on the path towards what will make you happy! Think about what kind of things you want to see happen next. What do you need to move forward and obtain your goals? Write it all down and make it perfectly clear to the Universe what it is your asking for!
Lots of people celebrate this season with religious or spiritual celebrations. But we must not forget the history, and that all of these festivities stem from the fact, that the Spring Equinox is first and foremost a major “Astrological Event.” This event is actually more about about the Sun’s light expanding, and it’s shift into the sign of Aries, the first Zodiac sign of the Astrological Calendar. This light represents the promise of a greater more warm life-changing energy coming into our lives. And Easter is just one of those celebrations that actually began many Moon’s ago, as Eggs and Bunnies originally were symbols of fertility and sex, and represented new life and new beginnings. Unfortunately, like most holidays it has been commercialized and even moved to a date on the calender that doesn’t match up with its origins and the Spring Equinox.
If you’ve been struggling through the Winter months, then consider this event to be just like a calendar New Year! In fact, it’s much stronger in energy because it is a Equinox. Be inspired that this is a new cycle and a renewed energy, and remember sometimes you have to believe that something can and will change to see it through.
May the Sun’s warmth and Spring’s New Energy bring about new beginnings for you that lead to your deepest dreams and desires coming true during this difficult time.

March Astro 2020 Monthly Forecast
March 3: Venus Squares Saturn Our relationships can be challenged and tested, as reality checks our served during this time about our feelings for others and how they feel about us! What we see in other people isn’t always what we get! It’s important to make sure we keep things real around this time, so be honest because fake simply won’t do. And if you realize something or someone isn’t working out so well, perhaps it’s time to think about letting it go.
March 4: Mercury Enters Aquarius in Retrograde On February 16th, Mercury the messenger of the Zodiac turned Retrograde (appears to move backward) in the sign of Pisces. But now Mercury shifts into more free-spirited Aquarius, and this brings in a new fresher kind of energy that helps lift our point of view. It’s a good time to go over and review our conversations and think about our options. Take a break from making any important decisions at this time, as mistakes are made more often. Making pros and cons lists can help us make up our minds when it comes to more complicated decisions. Stay away from buying anything that has to do with communication like smartphones or computers. Keep track of receipts and important paperwork for later, and avoid signing contracts or making long-term commitments at this time. During Mercury’s illusionary backward dance we should be reviewing our life, but wait it out when it comes to making important decisions until after Mercury turns direct from Retrograde on March 9th.
March 4: Venus enters Taurus Venus rules over its home sign of Taurus, and affects our money and relationships. Money matters are more important now, but we are more focused on how money impacts our close relationships. This is a good time to discuss money matters with partners, family members, and business partners. We should be paying more attention to our finances, and maybe set some money back for a special purpose or just a rainy day. It’s a good time to plan out future endeavors, but try not to act just yet! It’s all too easy to buy more luxurious expensive things during this time. With Mercury in Retrograde until the 9th, it’s just best to wait. Unless you want to deal with a mess later.
March 8: Sun conjuncts Neptune The Sun in the sign of Pisces joins up with spiritual Neptune. This influence is trying to teach us to have more faith in ourselves and the Universe, so we should be connecting to our intuition and following our gut instincts. This is the right energy for being creative and using our imagination, as it can lead to success. This is a time of idealism, dreams, and spirituality. It might be more difficult keeping your feet on the ground with your head in the stars.
March 8: Venus conjuncts Uranus This is a highly charged up energy, one that can make us feel quite happy and sparkly. Expect the unexpected, especially in your relationships and around your finances. We can meet someone randomly who is captivating. There’s a strong desire to change something or to mix something up in our relationships, business, or work. Give the ones you love some space, it actually will help bring you closer together under this energy.
March 9: Full “Super” Moon in Virgo This Full Moon is focused on the details of our lives. But we should put our time and attention on being practical and taking care of the basics. This energy can be quite draining, so make sure and get enough sleep, and plenty of exercises and eat healthy food. It’s important to be building up our immunity.
If we make an effort to connect to this powerful Pisces energy, it can help us learn how to work with our intuition, which can help us make better choices in our life.
Full Moons are about endings, so it’s a good time to take care of unfinished business. Clear out old and cluttered space and negative energy! We will need every drop of our energy and attention to take advantage of the fiery New Moon in Aries on March 24th, which is about new beginnings.
March 9: Mercury Retrograde Goes Direct! Even though this time is usually annoying so it seems with electronic glitches and snafus, Mercury in Retrograde can also be a time to gather information, and review past thoughts and conversations to learn something new or better.
Over the last three weeks hopefully while the planet of communication, Mercury was Retrograding you took some time to review your life, and plan out your next moves more carefully. If you waited patiently to make important decisions, your effort will be rewarded. So don’t worry about expressing what you need now. Get out there and network, reach out to others who are in a position to help you, for example with that job you want, or with that guy/gal you really are crushing on, or if your planning something. This is the time to start communicating all that you’ve learned while Mercury was in Retrograde, so you can start to slowly move forward with your plans.
March 11: Sun sextiles Jupiter The ethereal Sun in Pisces connects to Jupiter in practical Capricorn, and our imaginations sync up with our knowledge. This is the feel-good lucky energy we all need, as it can bring in abundance and golden opportunities. But we need to be paying attention to take advantage of this influence and make something happen. We can meet up with people who are inspiring, visionaries, or whom are beneficial to us in some way, and they can help us see things from a new or different perspective. This can make the world look and feel a little bit different, which helps us break old patterns, behaviors, and routines. So get out there and make something happen, and don’t miss this amazing opportunity!
March 14: Mars sextiles Neptune Under this influence we have yet another opportunity, accept this time it’s to move forward with any projects or plans we’ve been working on. Mars the planet of aggression, desire, and action motivates us when it meets up with idealistic and spiritual Neptune. Our imaginations get a major boost of energy, and what we might have thought couldn’t happen seems to have a way of working out usually in a more positive manner. There will suddenly be reinforcements that come to our rescue now. All you have to do is help this energy along, and make the most of the help you are offered. Never turn down a gift from the Universe.
March 14: Sun sextiles Pluto This aspect only occurs twice a year, so we only get a very short period of time to take advantage of it. People of influence or authority will be paying attention now, so those who are in positions of power are more willing to help, so be determined to get their attention. If we do get a chance to connect with someone important we can make progress. And if we already understand the give and take of relationships, we can experience even more success!
March 16: Mercury Re-enters Pisces Our imagination soars when mental Mercury enters the more sensitive waters of Pisces. This is very Psychic, sensitive, and visionary energy. If you can focus on what it is you want, you can use this transit to help you visualize your goals, plans, and dreams through April 11th. It is believed that the Universe doesn’t see this physical reality on Earth as the ultimate truth, so if you think about what you want and then feel it, they don’t know the difference and you can manifest your thoughts and feelings into being! Believing is seeing!
It’s a good time to Zen it out, folks, while Mercury is in Pisces (Mercury rules the mind and communication.) So spend this time practicing spiritual activities like meditation, journal-writing, yoga or walking, or doing anything that helps you connect to your spiritual self. Dreams both awake and asleep are full of messages at this time, and there can be some interesting information the Universe is trying to pass along, so pay extra close attention! The shadow side of this energy is we can feel foggy and sidetracked once again, as we were already in this energy for a while last month before Mercury went Retrograde. It can prove difficult to focus and we can lose concentration quickly.
March 19: Sun enters Aries Every year around this time the Sun enters the sign of Aries, and this officially kicks off the Spring Equinox above the Equator, and the Fall Equinox below, this is a time for new beginnings for those of us who are in the Spring Equinox. This transit gives us a warrior spirit with a strong heart. This can help us accomplish our goals. The influence of this sign can help ALL of us feel more confident and bold, so we can work better on projects and plans, and initiate something.
March 20: Mars Conjuncts Jupiter This is an interesting transit with Warrior Mars connecting to expansive Jupiter. We can feel like things are chaotic and out of control. This is a time when we tend to be quite impulsive and overdo things. Jupiter makes energies bigger and grand, while Mars is the planet of action and aggression, and when expanded can give us some crazy but strong energy that we can use to help motivate us to work on projects and goals. We can have lots of irons in the fire under this influence, and we just might have to let some things go, because we are so busy.
March 21: Saturn enters Aquarius This is a huge, Major Shift in the Cosmos! Saturn is the planet that rules over structures, taking responsibility and being accountable for our actions. It helps us draw boundaries, accept limitations, and deal with restrictions. We must learn to do what we are told and follow the rules when Saturn is involved.
Every two and a half years Saturn enters a new Zodiac Sign. While Saturn was in practical but ambitious Capricorn our focus was more on getting ahead and making plans so we could find something secure to build upon in this life. But with Saturn now in the sign of Aquarius, our focus shifts to helping with humanitarian efforts, and groups of like-minded folks, or those who are fighting for the same cause. So we are more interested in networking, friendships, and socialization. It’s a good time to find your Soul Tribe folks! Think about who you want to hang out or associate with. So we need to focus on plans and goals that involve others. This is not a time to go it alone, instead, we should stand together.
March 23: Mars conjuncts Pluto This is a strong potent influence, and it can potentially lead to something you’ve been wanting to achieve. We just have to make sure and keep control of ourselves, and not abuse our power, but direct it along with our passion for what we want. Letting go and allowing others to help us can bring in important people who can help us meet goals. Acting out of control and alienating the ones who are trying to help us can be problematic, so try to fix these problems. We must be mindful of not reacting under this influence, but remember this energy can have us all over the place! Over-reacting can lead to major problems. If we can keep our cool and be good to others and maybe help them out, we are going to in return feeling good about ourselves and hopefully clear some Karmic Debt along the way!
March 24: New Moon Aries A New Moon is a time of New Beginnings, and the sign of Aries is all about starting or initiating something new and fresh starts. This energy wants us to move forward and take action. This gives us more drive to take some necessary steps towards our goals and dreams. Just keep in mind that Aries is a tough sign, and is the warrior of the Zodiac and therefore we need to be more mindful while chasing down our dreams.
March 28: Venus trines Jupiter and Pluto The planet of love is in its home sign of more loyal Taurus, and is getting some help from its friends Jupiter and Pluto, both in more ambitious Capricorn. This aspect can help us in our business relationships, as those in a position of power can come to our aid in some way. In our personal relationships, there can be some transforming energies that are very powerful and intense. Some of you might fall in love during this time, as we can make deep authentic connections with others, and we won’t have it any other way. If you want real love, this is a time to let go and surrender to the power of what this transit is offering.
March 30: Mars Enters Aquarius This marks a big change, and we should get used to thinking outside the box now. Passionate, motivated Mars leaves simple Capricorn for independent Aquarius. This is a time for us to get creative and innovative. If you can tap into the active energy of Mars and the determination of Aquarius, you might just reach goals you didn’t think were possible.
March 31: Mars conjuncts Saturn This is not the kind of energy to be wasting our time in, as authoritative Saturn demands we take actions around our responsibilities. So we can be in a big hurry to get our to-do lists done, but we might run into obstacles and roadblocks along the way. We shouldn’t get too frustrated if we can’t do everything we want, as this is actually a good time to get more detailed about what it is you want to do with your life. This connection demands that we be disciplined and patient, which makes it a good time to work at it. Saturn serves as a reminder, that if we do a job that we need to do it right or it’s not worth it. We can make this influence easier if we work on the tasks we know we need to get done first, and if we apply ourselves we’ll be better able to get more things done.

2020 definitely started with a bang, as the energies have been somewhat unhinged. There’s been plenty of stressful situations to deal with. This is partly due to Uranus, the planet of changes, shocks, and surprises making so many connections to the other planets over the last month. But we are finally past the intense January New Moon energy, that was connected to Uranus. These challenging energies have been quite difficult to get through, but you passed the test! Now is the time to join together and raise the vibrational energy of our planet and heal ourselves.
During the month of January, we also had to deal with the super-intense Eclipses, and a strong meeting between Saturn and Pluto, which will continue to playout through most of the year! Both of these Cosmic events have brought about many unexpected changes and endings. And there have been many sad and even tragic deaths as well, as lots of people and animals have been crossing over. Often Eclispe season seems to be a doorway where us humans tend to leave to the go home.
Mercury Retrograde! February’s energies might be a bit easier to navigate, but we will have to deal with Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) phase that technically starts on February 16th. And starting Feb 4th, the pre-shadow period before the actual Retrograde begins, and we’ll have to deal with communication breakdown of all kinds, so the energies can get wonky! Mercury rules over our way of thinking and processing. It also tends to mess with anything electronic, so things like our phones, computers, or Wi-Fi all can act strangely. This cycle often brings up issues with water as well. There can be some adjustment time, as our perceptions change. This cycle lasts through the end March.
February Full “Snow” Moon There’s a potent Full Moon aka the Snow Full Moon on February 9th in the sign of Leo. This is a time of passion, as we are motivated by a sweet trine connection the Full Moon makes to heated-up Mars. This can give us an extra boost of energy we so desperately need to help us get something going. This influence helps us tap right into our intuition, so we can be quite Psychic. Pay attention!
This is a time when we can gain more insight and clarity about our life’s purpose, and what we are supposed to be doing. Hopefully, this influence can give you some direction, and help you find the right paths to follow that will lead you to your goals and dreams. It’s important to trust your gut instincts and inner guidance during this February Full Moon.
If you were having any issues around Jan 24th in your relationship, those energies might pick back up and tensions can arise, and you can lose control and have a bit of a meltdown, or you may get quite angry! Stay away from people who get easily agitated or upset, don’t allow them to take you there, simply ignore and move on. Leaving those situations alone will save you from much unneeded stress. This also is not the best time to be traveling, especially with Mercury slowing down to enter its Retrograde phase. There can be delays and issues. And the weather will be quite unpredictable, so pay attention to weather updates.
Full Moon Times to Set Intentions February 9, 2020 Eastern Time – 2:33 a.m. Central Time – 1:33 a.m. Mountain Time – 12:33 a.m. February 8, 2020 Pacific Time – 11:33 p.m.
Setting Intentions Make sure to Set some Intentions or make out your wish lists on or around February 9th, with the Full Moon’s energy. If you’ve never tried this kind of work, and you’re thinking what is she talking about, well then try it! It’s simply magical work. Release the things that are no longer working for you, or that aren’t serving you. This can be a good time to rid yourself of any old attitudes, or beliefs that are not helpful to you. So if you’re feeling blocked or stagnant, (which is very common during a Mercury Retrograde cycle) then get to setting those intentions! Ask the Universe to bring you something more positive to work with. You can ask the Universe to help remove what’s blocking you from the perfect job or relationship, for example. You can ask to let go and release whatever you want.

February 1 A lot of the stress we felt from the weekend of Jan 10-12 will finally start to break apart, and you might finally feel a release from the stress.
February 2 – 4 Important decisions that are made during this time can lead you into something more happy and healthy, which can make your life better in some way.
February 3 – 4 The Universe is going to be sending out strong messages and signs to help put you on the right path in life. If you ask the Universe to show you something more specific or to give you the information you need, you’ll probably get an answer within a very short amount of time. But you have to ask! Over these few days many of you will get answers, so pay attention and watch for signs, symbols, synchronicities, and messages.
February 7 Our love life and often financial situations can get quite a boost of passion when Venus shifts into the fast-moving sign of Aries. If your Sun, Moon, or Rising sign is in Aries, you’ll be feeling this energy even more strongly for the next three weeks, so make it work for you!
Have a good week folks, ~Ruby

The Cosmos is shifting once again and there’s a lot of changes on the horizon, as we wrap up November and slide into December. These energies can certainly be interesting, but can actually help us to get grounded as we build towards making our lives more stable.
The Goddess of Love, Venus just moved into more stabilizing Capricorn. Honesty is more important because we value integrity during this time. But we can appear cold or cut off with our feelings, simply because we’re more focused on getting things in place, so we tend to follow the rules or do what’s right under this influence.
Expansive Jupiter is in the last or 29th degree of Sagittarius until, starting Monday, December 2nd, Jupiter shifts into more restricted Capricorn, which starts what’s called a “Stellium” in Astrology, and it’s in the sign of Capricorn this time around which will affect us for the next six weeks! A Stellium is when three or more planets are in the same sign at the same time. This energy will saturate us in all things Capricorn, so over this next month, we can be more focused and serious about meeting our goals. Business matters and financial security will be of the utmost importance. But it’s a great time to get organized, and to look for ways to make your work, relationships, and life more stable. It’s a time to build solid foundations that last for years to come.
Wherever this Stellium in Capricorn falls in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart” is where you’ll see its energies most evident, and you’ll feel a stronger need to give that part of your life more attention for the next few months. The Earth Signs – Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus could see some benefits during this time, as it can be easier for them to handle this familiar energy. But we all can use it to our advantage if we work steadily and stick to taking care of our responsibilities for the next few months. No slacking off or taking foolish risks.
There will be a lot of Capricorn influence in place during December and January. And this will grow stronger with Jupiter joining the Stellium on Dec 2nd. Asteroid Ceres is already in Capricorn, and so are the South Node Points of Destiny, and Saturn and Pluto. On Dec 21st the Solstice will occur and the Sun shifts into the sign of Capricorn, and then Mercury as well on December 28th. That’s a whole lot of Capricorn energy folks, affecting many different parts of our Astrology Charts and our lives.
We should look to when the Moon is in Capricorn, as it makes this influence even stronger. We tend to take the high road under its influence and can be more reliable. The Moon is in Capricorn on November 29, and then on December 25-27, and on January 21-23. And there’s a strong Eclipse in the sign of Capricorn on December 26th as well.
So on New Year’s Day, the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, the South Node, Ceres, Saturn, and Pluto will all be in this Earth-Ruled “Stellium”, ringing in the New Year! Capricorn energy is abundant this New Year, so it might not be the most exciting of celebrations, as Capricorn energy is way more serious and we might just be more focused on taking care of business! But 2020, it will be a year to build some sort of long last foundation for yourself, it’s a time to get our lives structured and organized, and once things are in place we can party like it’s 1999 later.
When so many planets in one sign, something amazing can happen! Pay attention to the shifts and watch for some sort of change over the next few months.
Ready for a change! Jupiter in Capricorn
On December 2nd, giant Jupiter the planet of luck, personal growth, and expansion shifts into the sign of Capricorn. This brings in a whole new set of benefits and a shift in luck to pass around until December 19, 2020! All the Earth signs can benefit from this influence, but all the Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgo folks might just experience something wonderful during this time. But we all can see Jupiter’s rewards in one way or another. Jupiter is going to be in the last part of the sign of Capricorn for an extended amount of time, which means if you were born from January 10th to the 20th, you could see some extra special rewards.
It’s a time to get organized and get a plan together, make sure you find ways to make them for the long term, this is a solid time to build foundations that will last folks! But it also helps us learn how to work around restrictions and limitations. Make sure you’ve got backup plans as well. What will you be doing during this time?
Being methodical with your plans is important, because Jupiter is also meeting up with Pluto, which means drama, and power struggles. And Jupiter then meets with stern Saturn (Capricorn’s ruling planet), this means there can be conflicts and limitations to deal with even when you have a run of good luck! But keep working to meet your goals and don’t give up.
It’s important that whatever you choose to work on for 2020, that you get it going and ready by April, then you really have a chance to see your dreams materialize, and turn into successes.
December 10-14 This can be an especially lucky time for many of you, with amazing financial growth and lucky streaks around your career and professional life. Especially if you were born under the signs of Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo, or Pisces, there can some extra gifts for you this Holiday Season to look forward too. But remember this can happen for any of us.
All these new Cosmic influences starting on Dec 2nd can bring something successful into any of your lives. But as the saying goes “sometimes you have to give fate a hand”, and take some actions to find this good fortune. Everyone can find luck in different ways during this time, as this energy will affect all of us a little bit differently. And not everyone will be as lucky.
If you’d like to know about what part of your life to be focusing on and where you can find this lucky energy, then you should get a December Astrology Report. I will give you a whole bunch of information about December’s Cosmic energy and even some info for 2020, based on your personal “Astrology Birth Chart.” I will do all the research for you and give you the best times to make moves and changes, so hopefully, you’ll be able to benefit in some way.
Just email me at email@example.com or message me on whatever social media platform you read this on.
Hope this time brings you abundance and good fortune, ~Ruby
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever energies you need to let go or do away with, and also what doesn’t serve you anymore. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open things up, so we can get on the right path in life that helps us bring new and fresh energy.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes it is just an attitude or thought
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
This is the time when you should have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc!) whatever you believe in! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led down a path towards your dreams and goals during your Setting Intentions rituals.
Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But remember often this kind of work is magical and sometimes the things you want or ask for just show up! The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for helping us see all that has been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time.
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full Moon. Follow the steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in positive energies to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair, it feels safe and secure because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere
Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected to the Universal energy you see tapping into. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools make you feel calm and peaceful. Because that’s the kind of energy you want to bring into your life.
Step Three: Let It Out
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Many try using their electronic devices but it just doesn’t seem to have the same effect. But to each their own. Then you write about what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energies you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard.
It’s important to be patient and allow your work to take ahold during this process. And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always so earth-shattering signs or A-ha moments that show up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard that has some sort of message or meaning for you, look up Animal Totems. You can hear a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you, or see a movie and a scene seems to resonate with you on a deep personal level. Look for signs on everyday life and they just magically appear. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you! Messages and signs are always everywhere for us.
As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about, for example: Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life? What changes would you like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote very closely. Then close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, (that’s in the middle of your chest, not your actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this makes you laugh, cry, scream, or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that can of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing!
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next month, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at the very least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore, it’s truly miraculous.
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
The Winter Solstice also called Midwinter and Yule falls on Dec 21st 2020, when the Sun leaves the sign of Sagittarius and enters Capricorn through Jan 20, 2021. It is the shortest day of the year, and the longest night in the Northern Hemisphere.
This Cosmic Event officially starts “Capricorn Season.” Happy Birthday to all my Capricorn folks! But remember, this energy affects every one of us.
Hanging out in the darkness we have an amazing opportunity to go within ourselves and connect to our subconscious mind. Make some time today for mediation, reflection, and showing gratitude for anything good that happened in the past year!
2020 has been a super tough year, but we are strong and will eventually get through the Pandemic. Visualize life back to some sort of normal, where we are free of this threat. If you see it in your minds eye, it eventually will become your reality.
This year’s Winter Solstice is soon followed by what’s being called “The Great Conjunction.” As Jupiter and Saturn have both just shifted into the sign of Aquarius, and will conjunct on Dec 21st, ushering in the “Age of Aquarius.” Read more this amazing rare Cosmic Event.
All of these Cosmic connections make for some pretty amazing rare energies! These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share. Perfect timing for the Holidays, especially with it being 2020. We deserve something better!
The Sun in Capricorn is a time to get motivated and to take care of business. The Cosmos is reminding us to respect the physical world and nature’s laws under this influence. We can have a deeper appreciation for structure and order. Our motivation comes from a deeper need to be responsible, as our ambitions and respect for law and order are strong. Clear boundaries are drawn out, and simple rules are followed, which helps us feel more in control of ourselves and our lives. Simple everyday tasks and responsibilities are easily completed and taken more seriously.
All of this energy is further boosted by mental Mercury’s shift also into Capricorn just a day ago. Read more about it.. https://wp.me/p2dXxi-1CM
During this cycle, we can start working on our long-term goals and manifest a more stable future. Under the Sun in Capricorn, we can feel quite satisfied if we get tasks and work completed, as this influence gives us a stronger sense of accomplishment. We look for tangible results, and have a better understanding of what will last and what won’t. We’re much more comfortable working in an already established situation. We know our boundaries and respect them better during Capricorn Season.
I hope you get to celebrate this Magical season full of wonder and excitement. Just be extra careful out there.
Today is a Brand New Day and a New Era! Jupiter enters a new sign into Aquarius, which is a fast-paced, exciting kind of energy that can be unpredictable throughout 2021. It’s a time of innovation and progression, as Jupiter can spread around some abundance once again.
Over the last year, Jupiter, the planet of growth, philosophy, and expansion, has been transiting the sign of Capricorn, alongside planets Saturn and Pluto in a very well structured Stellium connection. This trio has been dismantling our lives over the last year, in many different ways, so it’s been a time of crisis that brought out our fears to work through. It has been difficult to see the light at the end of this dark and stormy tunnel. Jupiter’s influence has been stunted, so it’s not been handing out miracles or blessings as usual. Instead, it’s been in restrictive Capricorn challenging our faith and spirituality.
Jupiter is all about expanding our horizons, as it seeks deeper meanings and spiritual truths, especially involving education, freedom, community, and ideals. Aquarius energy matches up better with Jupiter’s purpose. This helps us feel more comfortable as this energy is easier to take in. So maybe we can learn to enjoy ourselves again, without being locked down in 2021!
Jupiter has a strong need to be free of all restrictions and have open spaces to explore. Aquarius seeks freedom and independence at all costs. We are bound to break out of the whole Covid19 mess in one way or another! Saturn also moved into Aquarius on December 17th, so there still will be challenges and lessons as always with Saturn’s influence. And even though there will be times when we feel ourfreedom and independence are being infringed upon, Jupiter now can find ways to lift our spirits and pull us through while in Aquarius and later in Pisces!
Jupiter will shift into the sign of Pisces in May of 2021 when it goes Retrograde. This preview can give us clues as to how the energies will play out in October, once Jupiter shifts into Pisces throughout 2022! At that time, there will be a major shift, and our focus will turn towardsspiritual activities and we tend to feel more compassionate, loving, and forgiving anytime Jupiter is in Pisces.
Jupiter shifting between Aquarius and Pisces throughout 2021 will expand how we teach, learn, and communicate. We already had a glimpse into how quickly Aquarius energy can advance our technology game in 2020 when Jupiter was Retrograde. And we had no choice but to learn due to Covid19. These influences can help us align with causes for our highest-good! So while in Aquarius, Jupiter helps us tap into humanitarian efforts. And it makes it easier to connect to our tribe and like-minded people. We also may feel a stronger desire to help others, especially in group settings. Following a path that honors our true authentic-self is supported, and we can let go of what is no longer working.
Jupiter in both Aquarius and Pisces throughout 2021 syncs well together, because both signs have a deeper understanding of healing the world. This can help us focus on the bigger picture and keep in mind what’s best for all of us as a whole. We can feel this influence surround us, as it gives us a reason or a better sense of purpose to help bond our communities together. And fight for causes that affect all of us.
Jupiter will retrograde back into Aquarius in June and then finally move fully into Pisces by the end of December 2021. By this time, we should have a good idea of what our goals, hopes, and dreams are for a better, more connected world. Being under this blanket of Air Sign energy, we need mental stimulation to thrive on. But we will likely be craving spiritual and emotional connections strongly all year long. This energy helps to restore balance in how we relate to people, particularly with friends and socially. Our communication skills are on point, and we can share our ideas and opinions much more clearly with confidence. Good communication skills lead to solving problems and healing.
Jupiter in Aquarius encourages us to be the activist, and gives us a reason to give in from time to time. Once Jupiter is in Pisces in May for a short visit will learn strongly that a battle can be won when we surrender.
Jupiter will bestow some amazing gifts in 2021, especially without feeling so blocked or restricted. It’s a time of forgiveness, as we honor our intuition and feel more compassionate towards others.
Saturn finally shifts today out of the sign of Capricorn and into Aquarius, it remains there for the next three years! Saturn is starting a new 28-year Karmic Cycle with this move. This shift means the structures and foundations of our lives will change from Earth elements over to Air elements, and this energy will last for the next 200 years. Welcome to a new era, and “The Age Of Aquarius!”
This energy produce things that are associated with electricity, and under the Air theme we can feel more breezy, lighter, social, inventive, and brilliant. Aquarius energy is always innovative and 10 steps ahead in the future, so the inventions will see during this time will be fascinating, as technology will advance faster then ever! We tend to focus more so spiritual pursuits that are of the higher-mind, so more open and free. And often Aliens are associated with Aquarius energy.m, and we’ve already had several interesting finds over the last several months. There actually was a preview of this energy when Saturn went into Retrograde last Spring. So if you’re curious how this energy will play out, you might want to look back to that time at the structures in your life and think about what challenges you were dealing with. This influence can affect any part of our life.
The Lord of Karma, Saturn moves into Aquarius, and helps break up the restrictive energy we’ve been dealing with all throughout 2020. This powerful Capricorn Stellium (more than three planets in the same sign.) This shift is historic, as it moves humanity into a revolutionary energy,Which we’ve already seen play out around the world.
Aquarius energy is all about freedom, and it wants what’s good for “All.” More than ever, people will fight for not their rights, but they will also demand social justice and change. And generally speaking, people won’t give up on these kind of humanitarian issues very easily. This rare shift turns our focus into changing our awareness and consciousness as a whole. We can connect to the information we need throughout this time. There’s an opportunity to help each other be more supportive to our communities and grow to be more like family.
Aquarius energy is an intellectual one, so we will need to take a look at the “Bigger picture” under this influence, and how our actions affect our way of life for our future. This is an innovative time that will strongly advance our technology game, so we are headed into some amazing times.
Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer, but actually, it’s an Air sign. It is symbolized by the diversity of all ideas, big or small, being brought together and poured into oneness. Ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius carries a strong electromagnetic current, so it can cause sudden eruptions and disruptions to occur in our life. Aquarius energy can bring shocking news or surprises of all kinds. But it is also represented as the higher mind of the Cosmos, and it helps us think beyond normal time and space limits and past the ego. It’s a bridge between here and the heavens, as it relays messages or A-ha moments to us. This helps us connect directly to source or higher power energies and enhance ourknowingness.
During this shift into the Age of Aquarius, we must remain open-minded and be more willing to do things differently! There will be many technological advancements that can help improve our way of life here on Earth, over the next several years. We all can benefit greatly from the diversity of our brilliant ideas and what we bring to the table, like inventions and genius like thinking. Aquarius energy has a deeper belief and understanding that everyone is the same despite their differences. Saturn will challenge us to look at humankind as one entity and not separated. This energy has already played out in our lives, with such things as women’s rights and the Black Lives Matters movement! Therefore its energy has slowly been building to come together for awhile now.
Saturn is the planet that shows us how to follow the rules and do what is expected. It works hard to create order by restricting and blocking us, so we will learn how to be somewhat emotionally detached and make good solid decisions. As Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn’s energies are serious about taking care of business. It serves as a constant reminder to learn self-mastery skills and responsibility. Saturn is the Authority of the Zodiac, and the great teacher, so it requires us to do the work involved to grow and mature. Therefore, we may appear somewhat cold and cut off, but usually we are just more focused. This heavy feeling energy can be suppressive, as it puts limitations, restrictions, and Karma out to help us learn. But it’s lessons can be With Saturn in Aquarius, it can be easier to move beyond limitations in place from our past. It encourages us to think in ways that support our authentic self-expression and to honor our personal individuality. The emphasis is on healing the collective as a whole, as this energy is all about the oneness. Working towards the good of all is our common goal now. Aquarian energy is always about keeping things equal.
Saturn connects to Jupiter in Aquarius (the humanitarian) on December 21st, 2020, called the “Great Conjunction.” These two giants first meet up in the Karmic degree of completion at 29 degrees of Capricorn on December 15th. It’s time to let go of the behaviors, beliefs, and habits that we’ve been living by over the last 28 years! We should focus on the lessons we start to learnnow to move ahead into the future. This energy will help us usher in so many new things starting on the 21st, so we can close the door on the past.
Saturn wants us to be more committed towards each other and to the greater good by doing things in groups, and as teams in combined forces. This will be required to create a future full of abundance. Jupiter will provide this energy as it also shifts into the sign of Aquarius on December 20th! Saturn will not leave the sign of Aquarius until March 7th, 2023, when it moves into the sign of Pisces. Many karmic lessons will finally end that came together in 2020 at that time.

Saturn always will make sure that we are held accountable but also be rewarded for our efforts, hard work, and the attention we give to each other.
Venus in Sagittarius – Exploration of a Higher Love Dec 15 2020 – Jan 8 2021
For All Zodiac Signs
With Venus, the planet of love and values, shifting into more free-spirited, optimistic Sagittarius, there’s a stronger desire for more freedom, adventure, and spontaneity in our relationships. With Venus moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, romantic energies go from deeply intense to more cheerful and hopeful.
These Sagittarian energies can be intense, considering it’s a fire sign. And there’s a ton of other planets currently in fire signs. However, we tend to be less focused and more into a Universal kind of love, so we can feel like loving on a high level. There’s a stronger desire to connect with like-minded people, who usually are more open-minded. We are looking to exchange energies by sharing our knowledge and opinions. So you may start to notice a stronger urge to merge or connect with other people, who are more on your intellectual level and who enjoy chatting about philosophies.
We can feel more social and want to try new things and meet new and interesting people. We may need to be free from our relationships, especially if they have been boring or are causing stress. Simply take some space and realign yourself during this cycle, or you could leave just because you need freedom. Not because you don’t love your partner or lover. It’s all to easy to break away for the time being and do considerable damage to a good relationship if you’re not careful, especially under all these strong fire energies, so try to think before making any permanent changes.
Venus in Sagittarius can help us see in the long-term, as we are more tuned into the bigger picture than the details. This might bring on some strong realizations that you need to reevaluate your love life and whatever is concerning your finances.
We can be attracted to people that bring more value, growth, or expansion to our relationships during this transit. Something or someone has to be more open, receptive, and free. There can be a stronger desire to travel and have some fun, so we can enjoy exploring and having an adventure of some kind. It can feel amazing to be free, and flow with the energies, and let our hearts lead the way.
If a relationship is stressful, this transit can encourage you to do some soul searching about where it’s headed. But you might not give it too much thought because you are distracted by thoughts of exploration. Ask yourself if your intimate relationship is going in the right direction, and then align with your truth. We can be focused on how restrictive we’re feeling in our relationships rather than how secure we are. If you’re able to be your true authentic self is more important now.
This influence allows us to reflect on our relationships, love life, self-worth, and finances. Are there any areas in your life that are of value that need to be improved or changed? It’s ok now to be curious and to think up new ideas and perspectives. This influence brings an opportunity to leave behind poverty consciousness or thinking in lack! It helps us see the abundance around us. It’s a good time to set yourself free from limited thinking and begin believing in the possibilities.
You may find love or money comes in more easily, and you can feel more confident during this cycle. Be open to leaving your comfort zone, to explore and be more adventurous and courageous. Allow yourself to go beyond your normal limitations. Free yourself from restrictions, and try to be more hopeful and optimistic. There is so much potential and opportunity that is ahead. Miracles happen every day, every minute, and every second. Why can’t one of them be yours!
On December 14, 2020 – a New Moon, Total Solar Eclipse occurs at 23°08’ of Sagittarius.
Over the last few weeks of Eclipse Season, a portal of energy has been opened. We have been walking blindly through one of the darkest years of our lives. The uncertainty alone has been a major source of anxiety for many. But we have hope for something equally as good and amazing in the future. This New Moon Eclipse, all though dark (all New Moon’s have no light to illuminate), is the symbol of light we need that shines the way towards the end of this tumultuous year. It is the beginning of a New Era!
This Eclipse brings endings and new beginnings, to potentially get rid of an old inner reality we’ve been holding onto. It’s time to take full responsibility for what we’re creating in our life. Sagittarius energies encourage us to go out beyond the normal boundaries, and explore or discover some new great adventure. It’s an opportunity to express our visions, and to connect with energy that’s new and fresh
With the New Moon in the sign of Sagittarius, we tend to feel more optimistic and hopeful, so it’s no surprise that when the Moon and Sun both align (New Moon) in this fire sign, that faith and hope will be restored. No matter how difficult life has been, we may feel or just know that things will get better. We tend to believe in spiritual truths and deeper meanings, more so.
However, with the Moon and Sun both conjunct the Moon’s South Node, which means this Eclipse can also bring significant endings, loss, and chapters closing in our lives. So make sure to honor your own feelings and others both, even if you’re not feeling particularly hopeful right now.
This Eclipse is conjunct mental Mercury, which means it’s important that we speak our truth. It serves as a reminder that our words hold power, and we can quickly realize how we speak our ideas into existence and create our own reality daily. Conversations can be interesting, so try to remain uplifting and inspiring without being dishonest or ignoring your integrity. Manifest something positive in your life to come in!
The Solar Eclipse is squaring foggy Neptune in its own sign of Pisces. So we must try to see the difference between positive thoughts and wishful thinking. It’s important not to make false promises or commitments. We may feel exhausted by this energy.
Luckily, the Moon, Sun, Mercury, and South Node are all in the sign of Sagittarius. And the New Moon makes a nice Trine to Mars in Aries. We’ve got extra fiery willpower to take action and follow through. As our motivation levels are high! It’s important to channel your energy into learning, growth, and evolution. Think of others, not just yourself.
Sagittarius is ruled by over the top Jupiter, so we can sometimes overdo it under all this Sadge energy. Over this last year, with Jupiter’s transit of Capricorn, we have been taught to live with less. Now we can use these skills to break out of the Pandemic and change things around.
Jupiter forms amazing Sextile connections with Venus and asteroid Juno on the same day as the Eclipse. We’re talking major “Huge Opportunities” for wealth and growth!
PAY ATTENTION! If you are one of the many, who like to SET INTENTIONS with the NEW MOON. This energy is going to give us a major boost in the manifesting department! It’s a time to focus on what you want, so MAKE A WISH LIST! Since Jupiter is involved, the sky is that limit! Go big or go home!

And finally, we also have Chiron, which is in fiery Aries turning direct from Retrograde just right before this Eclipse on December 15th. Chiron is the Wounded Healer and Teacher of the Zodiac! This is our gift from the Cosmos, as it can be a special time of healing.
Venus, the planet of love, shifts into more faithful Sagittarius on the 15th, yet another planet in a Fire Sign! We may desire more space and freedom from our nearest and dearest, but Covid going around it may not be such a bad thing. We just want to do our own thing and give others the chance to learn and grow.
The rare Solar Eclipse is just the beginning of what looks to be a great week astrologically! As both Saturn and Jupiter shift into the sign of Aquarius on the 17th & 20th. And on the same day of the magical Winter Solstice Dec 21st, these two planets meet up in the rare event called the “Great Conjunction.” This is perhaps one of the biggest Cosmic shifts we’ll see in our lifetime. And it starts off a brand new 20 yr cycle, even though we won’t understand its magnitude of influence into way down the road.
