August Full Moon Info


The Full Moon occurs on Thursday, August 15 in the sign of Aquarius.

The Full Moon is opposing the Goddess of love herself, Venus, but this actually can help all your single folks meet a soulmate or lover. There may be issues however for those of you who are already in a relationship, as this energy can be problematic and cause tensions in any kind of relationship. So that maybe with our children, siblings, close friends, family members, or even co-workers. There may be some drama, as any kind of difficult relationship can get more stressed out during this time. This Full Moon energy can bring out feelings of jealousy or anger! So if your partner is the jealous type, try to avoid direct confrontations during the 14th-16th, and this may even be stronger if you have already been having issues or have been arguing for the last few weeks or so. 

Even if you are not in a stressful relationship, there can be challenges around having to work extra hard during this time, so this influence can take our time and attention away from our personal life and family responsibilities. Be extra careful if you are feeling stressed out already and don’t over eat or drink too much, and try and get rest. This does affect all the Zodiac Signs but since the Full Moon is opposing aggressive Mars this can make the fixed signs of the Zodiac extra cranky this week, so all you Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, or Aquarius Sun or Rising signs can feel quite moody and tempers can flare. Take some “me” or down time for yourself and just relax and get some space somehow if you notice you are feeling stressed. 

This Karmic energy can potentially bring in love interests and create strong attractions. So we can meet a Soul Mate of Divine Partner during this time, but this energy can cause upsets, and than people may do things that cause feelings to get hurt, and we can feel wounded by what is said or done. Also, someone might show up in your life and cause some sort of drama and exit just as fast. For example, and an ex might get ahold of you and you agree to reunite in some way, and a week later they are off and running right back out of your life. So be cautious about these kind of situations, and don’t believe everything someone tells you. If you are already in a committed relationship or are married, be careful of outside forces trying to start affairs, as this energy may create upsets as secrets are brought out into the open. The Full Moon is always truth telling time as it is, as the light of the Full Moon can bring out what is hidden, unknown, suppressed, or denied out into the open to be dealt with. 

For all of you who are in a long-term or committed relationship of any kind, you may end up feeling bored or restless, So don’t make any SERIOUS mistakes right now! It’s not worth the risk of losing your relationship over! You might just regret it if you do anything with someone else, and you may not be able to get back together with whomever you kicked to the curb just for a one time hookup. If you are feeling anxious, use this creative energy and create something passionate in your current relationship, rather than looking for someone else to cheat with and risk losing what you already have. Stay away and don’t get pulled into looking at internet dating sites and apps, and don’t go looking for an ex or for someone from your past until after the end of August. 

There can be some interesting developments that take place during this time. If someone was really bad to you in the past this influence can help you overcome that situation, as these energies are about Karmic balancing. So you may see someone get what’s been coming to them for a very long time. The good news is the Sun is conjuncting Venus during this Full Moon cycle, and this can really help some of you overcome some sort of challenge, usually this will involve love or finances, but it can affect any part of your life. 


Full Moon Peak Times on August 15, 2019
Pacific Time: 5:30 am
Eastern Time: 8:30 am
Central Time: 7:30 am
Mountain Time: 6:30 am


Setting Intentions
Don’t forget to “Set Intentions” or to make out your “Wish Lists” for the Full Moon over the next few days, or before late Thursday evening when the Full Moon slips into its VOID cycle. Under the Full Moon you can also set out Crystals or Gemstones to be charged up by the moonbeams, and spend some time in meditation, and find your Zen and focus on what you no longer want in your life. What would you like to release is the question you should be asking? This can be a person, situation, or just an old belief or bad attitude, that might be blocking up your life. 

On August 16 and 17, remember Mercury Squares off with rebellious Uranus, this is already starting to cause issues, as some unexpected news may come your way, and all the Zodiac Signs are affected but especially all you Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Taurus folks. 

On August 18, Mars the aggressor of the Cosmos will shift into more detailed Virgo through October 4. All you Virgo and Virgo Rising folks may feel extremely restless and have a stronger boost of energy, so sleep may be more difficult during this time. This is a powerful energy that helps us get through the end of summer. All the other signs may be more critical and picky than usual during this cycle. But it is a good time to work on any projects that need your focus, you can get a lot accomplished if you just stay calm and simply concentrate. 

Have a Happy and Safe Full Moon,

Mercury in Leo – “Express Yourself”



Mercury in Leo– “Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury entered the sign of proud and expressive Leo on August 11th, and runs through August 29th. With mental Mercury the planet that rules our minds and the way we communicate in the sign of Leo our will and way of thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect. But we don’t mind expressing ourselves as much, and enjoy the finer things in life. 

However, we can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us, or is not listening to what we are saying. We should be extra careful, especially with the Sun, Venus, and Mars already in the sign of Leo! That’s a whole lot of fire energy going on and we can be extremely aggressive, pushy, or overbearing. Some folks do not understand how to handle all this strong energy, so if you start to feel upset take some time away and get space, so you can keep that Roar down to a purr.

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent they are the better. This cycle can help us organize our thoughts, so we can concentrate for longer periods of time, which can help us meet our goals. Our minds are full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance and have a stronger sense of purpose. We also may feel more proud and hopeful, so our thoughts just naturally turn to the positive. We can generally be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, but we also can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy,but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well. We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are so full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more than usual. Also, watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up oversharing private information with the wrong people.

With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about whom we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.

It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar leveled. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.

After working hard we also may feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner-child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy, and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love, we can become quite irritated and lonely.

Have a good rest of August,

“Setting Intentions” by the Full Moon!

A Full Moon will be coming together on eve of Thursday, August 15th if you live in the states, in the sign of Aquarius. This means we are supposed to balance out what we do for ourselves and others both, during this time. And it’s the best time of the month to work on releasing and for Setting your Full Moon Intentions or performing energy rituals.

Read on below to learn how!


This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever you need to let go, or do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. 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 releasing old pains and experiences that might have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the new energies can come in! 


During the Full Moon we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open up doorways so to speak, so the new energies can be allowed into our lives.


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 a attitude or thought
  • Clearing space for new energies to come in
  • Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be

Have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc) whatever you call it! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be put on a path towards your dreams and goals.

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 sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time. You just might be pleasantly surprised by what you learn.


Setting Intentions Guide

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 some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies.Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work at. 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, because it feels safe and secure. But also 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. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.


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! Then you write what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy 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. 

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 some sort of earth shattering sign that shows up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard, or hearing a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you. 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! 

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here’s 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 cna 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 Moons light show you the way! Hopefully, at the very least you will be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need in your life anymore. It truly is a miraculous process once you learn how to work with the Moon’s energies.


Happy Full Moon

Mercury in Cancer – Sincere Communication

*For All Zodiac Signs*

 
Mercury enters the sign of more sensitive, and stronger feeling Cancer later today, on June 4th. This transits runs through June 29th! But we will have to retrace our steps back into Mercury in Cancer in July when Mercury goes Retrograde!
 
 
For now, with Mercury in Cancer, we communicate with our hearts and emotions first. We think, speak, and take in information on a deeper emotional level now. We tend to follow our gut instincts more so now, which is helpful if we listen to our intuition.

 

This transits influence makes us less interested in what’s happening in the real world. We can be sort of selfish, as we go more inward with our thoughts and feelings. We are more concerned about what affects us personally, which includes more focus being put on the people that are near and dear to our hearts and upbringing.

 

Our thoughts are more colored by our emotions and how we are feeling, which can make it more challenging to be objective or fair, although this energy can help us feel our thoughts out first before expressing them. Which means we are more sincere and authentic. This can produce stronger moments of pessimistic thinking, or negative thoughts, so we must be more mindful and perhaps work harder at thinking more positive. Some folks tend to be shyer during this time, and will need to be reassured to feel safe enough to be vulnerable. But this influence does help our communications to be more authentic and loving at times, but also full of emotions.

 

Communicate From Your Soul

Astro Monthly Forecast for June 2019


June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end. 


The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy. 

Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!


On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.


On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long. 


Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances. 


On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.


The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well. 


On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune, this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.


June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow periodMercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!


Happy Summer Solstice.
Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!

On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.

The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.

The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.


On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes with what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self more. 


On June 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.


Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at healingruby@gmail.com or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings,

Sun and Mercury in Gemini

A Time For Communication!

For All Zodiac Signs 


The Sun shifts gears into communicative Gemini today, its influence may bring about change and some disruption during its time through June 21. We are highly stimulated and need to talk, and to reach out to others and share ideas. Our thoughts may be quite scattered during this time. Jumping from one thing to the next involving anything that has to do with communication, like through emails, texts, and phone calls of course. It’s a great time to channel this energy into productive activity, catch up with some correspondence or paperwork. This can be a good time to multi-task, so stay busy to keep yourself distracted, but don’t overdo it! Perhaps try to focus on one thing at a time if you feel overwhelmed, you can’t get it all done at once no matter how hard you try. What work are you busy with now?


Due to timing, it just happens that mental Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet, is shifting into its own sign of Gemini today as well. This means our core self, ego, and minds are going to be quite scattered and very aware of the energies all around us that we maybe can’t normally see. Doors suddenly open and close during this time, but we can see between the lines like never before. This influences energy speeds up time and our lives, so the way we think and communicate will be at a much faster pace then what we’ve been doing while the Sun and Mercury were in much slower moving Taurus over the last month or so. Get rest you’re going to need it to keep up! 


We are definitely more chatty, but we also can be unreliable and unfocused. Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and curious under this influence. We tend to scatter our energies as a result of this curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, so we are open to talking about anything. Emotionally speaking our moods can swiftly change up and down, and even though we may feel more easy going and active, we’re still more prone to feeling nervous and excitable, which can lead to feelings of frustration and we can anger more quickly. With all this energy we can get overstimulated, and have a stronger need to talk and reach out to others and share our ideas and opinions. So be careful it’s all too easy to overshare information and tell to much. 


While the Moon and Mercury are both in the sign of Gemini we can feel nervous or more restless, so it’s best to keep yourself busy 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 later, as it can be quite valuable later on. It’s important to take breaks and get physically active during this time, this will help your mind relax. Be social and look for different and interesting people to mingle with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles. 


Sun in Gemini May 21 – June 21
Mercury in Gemini May 21 – June 4 


Enjoy this time,

Mercury shifts into Taurus



Astro Alert – a time to focus!


For All Zodiac Signs

Mental Mercury rules over our minds and how we express ourselves! Mercury changes signs into more practical Taurus on May 6 and stays through May 21.

This is a huge shift for all of us. We’ve been under a lot of fiery fast-moving planets since the end of February, and this is the last planet to shift out of that energy! Now the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and soon Venus all will be in the sign of Taurus. This definitely helps us feel more down to earth, stable, and grounded, which will be a nice change of pace but maybe take a few days to get used to. So if you feel tired or unmotivated, don’t worry it won’t last for too terribly long. Just no its a time to pay attention and move slowly.

However, we can feel so slowed down that we need to watch ourselves for feeling to down. This influence does help us use our common sense instead of being so impulsive. We tend to communicate still quite deliberately under this influence, and we can get right to the point and be a tad bit aggressive if we aren’t careful. But we also like to stick to what has worked in the past, so we would rather work with tried and true methods that have worked in the past, instead of finding new ways of doing things.

Our attention is more focused on doing one thing at a time, which can help keep our lives more simple as we should work really hard at what we want and manifest something for ourselves! We need to keep ourselves in check however, for being too rigid, stubborn, or conservative in our way of thinking.

Otherwise, enjoy this time and stop and smell the roses” from time to time. Enjoy life and all its simple pleasures.

Luck Comes Alive!



Rubys Astro Readings
May 2019


May’s abundant New Moon in the sign of Taurus, which is ruled by lovely Venus (beauty, money, love) just came together on Saturday the 4th, and brings us to the end of a cycle that has to do with financial issues! This New Moon brings you to end of some sort of Karma you’ve been dealing with around money and financial well-being. And it also kicks off a month-long period of abundant energy, and some sort of prosperity for many of you! If you’re willing to do a little work with the Universe it can go a long way right now. 

This positive financial shift can really make a huge difference in some folks lives! As the Buddha Full Moon comes together on May 18 next, this is when we should be releasing any long-term ancestral Karma around finances and other parts of our lives as well. If there have been any money issues or challenges passed down from generation to generation in your family, then you might be living under what’s called poverty consciousness! Now you can ask the Universe to help you let go of that way of thinking and that life, and be done with that Karma that binds you to financial misfortune. 

Work smarter, not harder I always say, so please do something proactive to be connected to this amazingly abundant shift. Just by working with the energies between the New and Full Moon during the month of May can bring many new opportunities onto your path for wealth and new financial resources. As the New Moon is in the sign of Taurus, so it is all about manifesting! Letting go and releasing under the Full Moon energy this month could open up space for the Universe to bring in something or someone new, this can end up being a much better fit or situation for you. So if you are losing a job, home, or relationship right now, again sit down today and write out some intentions to the Universe, and feel it after you’re done, visualize it in your mind and feel it in your heart and manifest what you want to create in your life next around money and abundance. 

When you can align your energy with these Cosmic events, and set your intentions and thoughts to the possibilities, and then make sure and do something about it, so take action during these powerfully abundant Cosmic periods. That’s when you’ll see some sort of good luck start to show up in your life. 

The Full Moon cycle we are in right now that starts May 18 is a time for releasing old poverty consciousness, learned behaviors, and wrong ways of thinking and doing money in your life, so instead you can open up your mind to unlimited possibilities! That’s when the wealth shows up! 

Important Dates to pay attention to May 4’s New Moon was just the start of a month filled with opportunities for financial gain. If you been feeling like there’s not enough money to just pay your bills lately, there’s a lovely connection between Venus and Jupiter on May 9. This influence can help us seriously attract money! 

There are also two more good cycles for money to be shifted into something more abundant in May! The first one begins around May 12 and runs all the way through May 24. Also, May 18 is the best day for unexpected money to show up! 

Lovely Venus will make a nice trine to powerful Pluto starting May 28 as well. This is a great aspect to land that new job or to gain the money that you’ve been waiting on, and for signing long-term commitments and/or contracts and so much more. All of this could bring in some abundance for many of you. So if you are also thinking about filing a lawsuit or a making a big negotiation of some kind, look for things to start happening around this period, so through June 7 

The next couple of months have a strong energy for lucky financial opportunities to come into your life. It’s a good time to get a Reading with me about your finances and see what you need to be doing to tap into this energy. Order a One Question Reading about your money luck, and will make a plan of action and see where you are headed. 

May you have lucky times ahead!

Saturn Goes Retrograde A Wake-Up Call!



Saturn Goes Retrograde
April 29 – Sept 18
By Rubys Readings


Nowadays, it’s become common knowledge to understand what Mercury in Retrograde is all about, but what you might not know is all the planets have a Retrograde cycle, which is when the planets appear to be moving backward in the sky! And these Cosmic shifts do cause significant changes and effects on all of us if we are aware of it or not! Saturn in Retrograde is considered to be a very powerful energy and marks a turning point in our lives. 

Starting April 29 the ringed-planet Saturn starts its five-month-long trip in its Retrograde cycle, through Sept 18.  This astrological event occurs just over every twelve months, lasting for nearly 4 and 1/2 months. Saturn Retrograde is not rare and lots of folks are born under one as well. This is a time of restrictions, blocks, limitations, and some anxiety and fear. The skills we learn during this Retrograde phase will prove essential to our growth for the long-term. In the coming days, you may feel off, weighed down, and disoriented, as once again our perspective shifts. But this is how we are affected by Retrograde planets at first anyway, at least until we have a chance to adjust to the shift in energy. 

Often it’s the very beginning and the end of these cycles (or commonly called Shadow Periods) that are the toughest or most challenging time. Just remember Retrograde cycles are always about perspective, so as these planets appear to be moving backward through the Cosmos, we too can feel like we’re going backward in our own lives, but it is a time to at least slow-down! 

During Saturn’s Retrograde cycle, it is a good time to revisit our relationships and work on any long-term goals we may have, as this is a time to pay close attention to our responsibilities and duties. It’s a time to restructure the way we manifest our reality and find new ways of thinking, and perhaps, adopt a different attitude about how to remove what is blocking us, or how to get through the obstacles that are in our way.

Saturn is known as the “Lord of Karma,” and while Retrograde it is a time when Karma is sorted out. Therefore, Saturn Retrograde can be a double dose of Karma handed-out. Karma is actually a form of energy that is very real, and like Saturn, it is very closely bound to time.

Over the next week, during the beginning of Saturn’s Retro phase, as it turns completely Retrograde, we may begin to feel the weight of it in certain situations quite heavily, especially around our responsibilities. Many of you will actually let go of certain commitments including relationships, jobs, or business deals, which can leave you wondering why you even bothered with them in the first place. We may feel somewhat disconnected and lose our motivation. It might be difficult to make important decisions during these influences, as our energy levels can be low. All of this is due to a change in perspective. We will learn how to find our footing and regain some sort of balance into next week, (into the first week of May), as we grow more accustomed to these shifts. Then we can turn Saturn’s Retrograde cycle into an opportunity, which is the most powerful way to see any Retrograde planet! Make this a time to go over and review your responsibilities, so you can figure out what’s working and what’s not. Take on any challenges you are dealing with and face your reality with gumption and make things happen, Saturn always rewards us for our hard work by the way. 

It’s important to slow down now and reconnect with what makes you feel useful, like your work, relationships, and duties. This, in fact, is not a good time to add anything to your existing responsibilities or duties, as the extra projects will just stress you out even more. We should be cutting back and reducing what we normally take on right now, it’s a time to make things simple folks! Any delays you happen to run in to now are just a kind reminder from the Universe that its time to make adjustments. This is a chance to make edits and corrections that are necessary for your success. This is a major time out from the Cosmos.

This influence has us take a look back at what we have already done or taken care of, so it can make you feel like you are moving backward and like you’re not moving forward. Actually, this is happening so you can review or go back over something that normally otherwise you wouldn’t have. Everything ruled by Saturn is under the microscope now and it’s a good idea to review these kinds of things. Like any rules or regulations you should be following, structures at work or in business, and traditions and foundations. Making changes to our ongoing projects or going over old ones can be successful, however, taking on new projects or responsibilities or commitments is probably not a great idea, it’s a time to simplify and restructure our lives first.

During Saturn’s Retrograde phase we will be dealing with particularly strong issues. Just remember as we take care of our unfinished business, Saturn is teaching us to be more patient and disciplined. Any skills we acquire during the retrograde phase will prove essential in the long-run to our success. 

Saturn’s lessons for all of us during its Retro phase is to take on certain responsibilities that we have already been developing or that are more important in our lives, so extra time is needed to take stock and to make sure everything is in order before we can continue. Saturn will present us with challenges and tests to make sure we are ready to take on these extra, but necessary responsibilities. The lessons we learn and that are taught by the Teacher of the Zodiac, Saturn, are often rough but they are valuable, and we are always rewarded by Saturn for our hard work and a job well done!

The shadow side to Saturn’s Retrograde is you may become sad or depressed, and not speak up for yourself, or act overly shy. If these behaviors get out of control during this time, then you’ll be offered a chance to recognize and admit you’ve got a problem. If this goes too far you can end up needed some help, so you can come out of your depression or isolation. Make sure and talk to someone if you start to feel down or too depressed, no matter what the planets are doing, there is always someone ready to listen and care more than you believe. 

This is an excellent time for schooling or training, but we may question it. There’s also going to be questions about our life, faith, and belief systems, as some folks will return to a Spiritual Path they started back in their past. We may need to tweak or edit a project that we plan on publishing or do something related to writing. Whatever you do during Saturn’s Retrograde, remember it’s a time to ride life straight and follow the rules, if you can do that you may learn a lot about life and gain some much needed and valuable insight that you can use for the long-term, and your future success.

May Monthly Forecast



The month of May might seem to start off a little slow but that’s due to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto’s very strong Retrograde phases, and with Mercury still in the impulsive sign of Aries, we may feel like making decisions but can be confused about what direction to take. One thing these Retrograde planets are doing is giving us grand ideas and inspiration, but our progress has sort of came to a standstill and it can feel like you’re trying to move a brick wall at times. This is a time to wait it out if at all possible, but I’ve learned most folks refuse to go with the flow of the Cosmic energies, unfortunately, so if you must make a major decision of some kind take into consideration this is a time of delays and cutbacks, and there can be many different things that try and stop you from making progress. But this is only temporary folks, we are only in Retrograde Season for the next three and half months. 


On May 1st the planets Uranus and Neptune from a somewhat tense semi-square for the last time, but you can feel this all week long. This long-term transit has been in play, off and on since August of 2017. With this aspect, we have been seeking inspiration in one way or as this connection grows stronger and forms once again, we might feel restless if our dreams are not coming together in a way we like or want, so we might need to make some sort of big change. We can easily deceive ourselves in some way or others believing we are going to get something that we just can not have at this time, as we can go on some sort of tangent and act on a whim. But only to realize after this influence breaks apart that it wasn’t going to stay together in the first place. In the weeks ahead with Mercury separating from Uranus by just one degree, our progressive ideas and inspired thoughts can start to come together.


A New Moon occurs on the 4th in the sign of Taurus, and we are more motivated to take charge of things, but we must be practical and use common sense to achieve what we want, especially if it has anything to do with making ourselves feel more safe or secure in some way. This is a good energy to think about your relationship with money and your possessions, and to learn what it is we truly value and what genuinely makes us feel more happy and content with life. We should be focusing on what it is we can do to increase our own feelings of self-worth, and how to make our lives more simple. This is also a great time to reconnect with the outside world, so with nature and our bodies, and to our senses, for example, what makes us feel good, like food, music, and sexual activity. Under this lunation, we can feel a sense of purpose and like we are on a mission, as we are ready to take on projects that bring personal pleasure. This is a manifesting New Moon under the sign of Taurus, so we should make sure to take some time to Set Intentions with the cosmos and write out our wish lists about what kind of energy and events we would like to see unfold next in our lives! What paths do you want to head down next? What would bring you the most pleasure?


Mercury makes a shift on May 6 into the sign of much more slowed-down Taurus, as it moves out of the fast-moving sign of Aries, so we can see big changes. This energy slows our thinking process and the way we communicate down a notch, as we enjoy living in the present moment and savoring all that is pleasurable and beautiful. Over the next month, our way thinking is more practical, and we now see our inspired ideas come alive and make a difference in the physical world. 


Venus is in Taurus from May 15-June 8 2019.Venus while in the sign of sensual and natural Taurus, can have us feeling more content but also possessive when it comes to love. We seek and value not only what’s been tried and true in the past in our relationships, but what will last and has staying power. Our desire for anything pleasurable it super strong, including our appetite, so lots of folks will be eating up their emotions! Under this Taurus energy, we are more focused on the here and now, or the present moment, as we want to explore what makes our senses come alive! With Venus in the sign of Taurus, we tend to show our love through physical expressions, and romance is very important to us now. We can get a little overbearing with the object of our affection and hold on tightly to someone we love, but we should be careful not to smother them. The shadow side of this excessiveness is we can treat our partners like objects that we own or just want to have around. And since Venus often rules over our finances or money, as well, we do look for a business to be practical and solid, but also want to only buy what is considered to be of higher quality (often what we cannot afford.) Holding on to our possessions is more likely now.


Mars is in Cancer from May 15-July 1 2019Mars carefully sidesteps through the sensitive, complicated waters of Cancer in May.  Mars is the planet of war and strategy, it rules over our physical actions and our passions. We will pursue our goals consistently, but we avoid a direct approach and go after these things in our own way and in our own time. We are less likely to move forward towards our desires and goals with Mars in the sign of Cancer. It is very important that we meet goals and plans, but we can end up diving into our own insecurities, vulnerabilities, hidden agendas, and old emotional wounds. We can learn how to use some self-nurturing tactics along the way. It may be difficult to control our temperament because our mood swings dictate how we do things or when we do them. We’re not overly aggressive but more defensive, as keeping our security is a priority! Therefore, we can be more cautious and conservative in this energy, but we will “Fight” for or on the behalf of those that are near and dear to our hearts.


The Full Moon occurs on May 18 in the sign of Scorpio. This Full Moon can make us feel totally restless. This energy has already been making some of you feel a little nervous over the past week or so, it can make us feel like something is wrong or about to happen. As with any Full Moon, we can feel pushed and pulled on under the Sun and Moon in their tense connection in two opposing signs, and this time around it’s between the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio. Luckily, this Full Moon is making harmonious connections to Pluto and Saturn which means we just might have exactly what we need to make some sort of change. This Full Moon energy has us digging deeply, it’s a time of transformation, strategy, love, and generosity, with no space for those who are being false. At its worst, this Scorpio energy can also cause issues with control, manipulation, jealousy, obsession, vengeance, deceit, paranoia, and we can feel overly suspicious. This Full Moon is a strong reminder that we need to think about those who are good to us and appreciate the folks who help with their love and support. We need to listen to others needs, wants, and opinions. This is a time of endings and rebirth.


Happy Gemini Season! On May 20, the Sun slips into more easier going Gemini, so our relationships may move beyond what is false or superficial, and we may just want to make a long-lasting commitment of some kind. A lot of folks tend to get engaged and married during Gemini Season for a reason. Any long-term investments you have been thinking of or planning out can be made now and that includes your relationships. This is a time when we enjoy meeting and schmoozing with others, as we can have all those wonderful brilliant conversations that are quite intellectually stimulating. This actually is a time to collect information and save it for later, you never know how valuable it might become.


A time for Healing! There are two rather nice influences for healing that come together on the 21 and 22, but can affect us weeks before these dates.

On the 21, powerful Pluto and Chiron, the wounded healer and teacher align, and this allows our creativity to flow strong, we are more clever when it comes to solving mysteries in our lives and for both ourselves and others, and when figuring out problems, particularly those issues that may have been holding us back in some way from our destined path in life, towards personal growth and development. Overall, this energy can help us see past human flaws and evolve for a higher purpose, which is about forgiveness and healing.

On the 22nd, dreamy Neptune forms a lovely trine connection with the destined North Node of the Moon, this is a beautiful time and an opportunity to get in touch with your intuition. This helps us trust ourselves to be on the right path toward our own personal improvement, growth, and enlightenment. But his is also a good time to release any negative energies that are holding us back from growing. During this time it might be easier to let go of matters that have caused us pain or frustrations. This is a wonderful few days to meet with others who support our same values, and some of them might even help us see our own potential more clearly.


Have a good and happy May, if you need help or guidance, or just some insight please contact me Ruby here.

Weekly Love Forecast

End of April first of May
For All Zodiac Signs 


There can be issues when it comes to communicating this week, as the energy can be touchy and sensitive, but as we leave the energy of April and move into May an amazingly romantic New Moon comes together. And whatever issues we drudge up over the week can be healed if we make an effort to do so.


Mental Mercury in fiery Aries will square off to both Saturn and Pluto, making this a week when words can be used as weapons, and what we say can really hurt. Instead, you could use your words to hurt someone else. Be careful folks, although you or your partner may feel compelled to express the truth in a to the point kind of way, there’s no way of telling just how badly you can hurt one another as a result!


Then, a New Moon in touchy-feely, sensual Taurus on Saturday makes a beautiful connection to the same planet Mercury that was challenging us at the beginning of the week. This is a time when we can get our physical and material needs in life and love met well. So perhaps any hurtful remarks that are made at the beginning of the week were meant to help open our hearts up, so we could heal something in the end after all.


Have a loving week folks

Pluto Goes Retrograde!

by Rubys Readings

Pluto Turns Retrograde (Backward) in the sign of Capricorn

April 24 – Oct 3rd
For All Zodiac Signs:

Welcome to the dark side of our human existence, the cosmic detective, powerful Pluto is starting it’s challenging Retrograde cycle today.

This energy can bring things out of the shadows into the light, so whatever is exposed might be a total shock to our system. Usually, this is regarding how we use and gain our own personal power when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. But by the end of this Retrograde cycle, the truth will hopefully set you free!

The beginning of this shift brings with it confusion, as it seems to intensify the problem areas of our life. At first there is a heaviness in the air with this energy, however, this is an excellent time for research, and for discovering new insights into our own issues about how to keep or gain control and use our own personal power! This transit helps us discover our own motives. We can be enlightened by the information we receive about our own self-destruction, as well as the planets, but this is also about our personal transformation and the path we are heading down.

Has someone been dishonest with you? Or have you been dishonest with yourself in some way or just in total denial? With the right attitude, whatever you discover during this cycle could take you from a breakdown to a breakthrough, and perhaps a major ah-ha discovery!

How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough power, and others get nervous when they have too much control, and then there are a those who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around things such as power and who has control. People rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays made for power and control. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else’s life, or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out just how to move forward in ways that can make us feel more in control. Just be careful about who’s toes you step on, or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things, and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.

Do the work the Cosmos is showing you, and you can transform parts of your life during Pluto’s Retrograde cycle.

Venus Moves into Aries! -“Love On Fire”


Venus enters Aries – “Love On Fire”


From April 20 – May 15


The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac which brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. 


This cycle brings love on rather quickly, as relationships, both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient.  


Even though we can be more direct than usual, some folks will be more reserved emotionally during this time. Feeling more unsure about themselves, especially if the love we feel is not been validated or expressed back. Love can be challenging, and if your confidence is already low then you can end up being more strategic or sneaky when it comes to matters of the heart. Under Venus in Aries we don’t look back, this is a time to move forward with anything concerning love or money. Each day is looked upon as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more so under this energy!


We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest of someone we have feelings for. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fresh breath of air to reignite their passions! If you are single than watch out for hooking up with someone new, quick and fast! Often these relationships fizzle out just as quickly. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you are wanting a new commitment around love or money. Pay attention to what could happen in the long-term with whomever you are interested in unless you are just looking for a hookup, as that can be much easier than usual. 


Love can be raw and sexy with the love planet Venus in hot and bothered Aries, as it is ruled by the planet Mars which is always about sex, aggression, and passion, as they can go hand and hand. So our sexual adventures can be quite interesting during this time. 


Edit With Venus in Aries energy, we say how we feel out loud and don’t like to sugar-coat things. “Saying it like it is” is more important at this time. We aren’t always mean necessarily in this energy, but we speak our minds and for some that can be difficult to take. Our desires are strongly expressed and we are more spontaneous, direct, and enthusiastic. And we prefer to seduce rather than be seduced, to chase than to be chased or hunted. We want to be in charge and in control, so we say what goes in our relationships now, and can have debates or even arguments over who has the upper hand in a relationship, but this also can come out in business affairs around money as well, as we can be a bit overbearing if not careful. 


Have fun under this influence, enjoy some alone time with the object of your affection,

~Ruby 

Sun in Taurus


This is for All Zodiac Signs!

The Sun is in the sign of Taurus from April 19 – May 20


Happy Birthday to all my Bulls! But now understand when the Sun is in any Zodiac Sign, it actually affects all of us no matter what are Sun Sign maybe.


The Sun in Taurus is a time when we feel more sensual, receptive and determined. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable which definitely overall can be a great help with so many other Cosmic connections happening during this time speeding things way up. This helps us take a deeper look at the events unfolding around us, so we can look at any complicated situation with some good old-fashioned common sense. This sign teaches all of us how to defend ourselves and resist things, but also how to love in a deeper, sensual, and more intimate way, and appreciate the physical world and all its beauty. 


This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up a place to zen out and get all comfy and cozy for the next month to make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. This cycle shows us what stability and substance look like. We seem to be drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not as much risk-taking happening usual in this energy. (However, mental Mercury is in the sign of Aries which does tend to give us some get up and go even under this energy.) With the Sun in Taurus, we have an opportunity to really value things in the material world and on a spiritual level both. 


As the Sun moves through this sign, we get to see what it is to manifest our world here in this physical reality, as the seeds we have planted take root. Our determination and need for security can become quite strong. Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, using what’s been tried and true in the past, and sticking to what’s familiar. We value those who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and will honor them more so during this time.


We see the beauty in life and are more focused on what pleases the senses, as they are aroused and highly activated, so we have more appreciation for things like food, music, sex, entertainment, and just anything that feels pleasurable. Because we’re more receptive in this way we should make the time to stop and “smell the roses”, rather than be in a hurry and pass things by. Enjoy all the beautiful things life has to offer and learn to find something beautiful about your life and yourself while the Sun is in Taurus. 


The shadow side of Taurus energy is we can be more possessive, especially with our children and partners, and we can act extremely stubborn and bullheaded. We must learn how to get out of our own way long enough at times and be willing to hear others ideas and opinions. 


While the Sun is in Taurus we should be making plans and setting goals that will be built to last. Put away some money for a rainy day and for your future endeavors. This isn’t a good time to make some kind of life-altering decision, however. Just plan for now, and maybe give it until the end of May to make your next big move.

Venus in Virgo – “Actions Mean More Than Words”

Venus the planet that rules over love, relationships, and often money moves into more practical Virgo from August 21 thru September 14.

Love is expressed in a much more down to earth manner when Venus is in the sign of Virgo. So we tend to show our feelings in more practical ways, like by doing some sort of work, running errands, or just being there for our loved ones. Our love and affections are expressed through what we do for the ones we love, and the actions that are taken. This is what counts during this cycle. Since we more reserved, this is not a very good energy for communicating our deeper feelings. And here soon with so many planets in “Virgo”, it’s going to be really difficult to express our true feelings. This lasts through the end of September!

Love is more logical and comfortable during this time, so our relationships must have some sort of purpose with Venus in Virgo, as we are looking for long-term stability and commitment.

The sign of Virgo is an Earth Sign, so we can feel reserved but also sensual in our relationships. This energy doesn’t just affect our romantic lives, it also usually influences our spending and the way we handle our finances. During this time what we choose to spend our money on must have some sort of emotional attachment. But even if it’s money being spent on something more pleasurable, it must be practical in our own mind.

The bottom line is during this cycle whatever we enjoy must be practical and make sense. Even our relationships must feel like they have a sense of purpose, or there can be issues.

We might end up feeling a bit guilty if we are too self-indulgent during this time. Which means we stay feeling stuck and then end up doing nothing at all. And even though we start thinking more so about organizing our lives under all this Virgo energy, we can be a bit lazy, so we will need to find ways to stay motivated. Especially, now that Mars the sign that rules over our stamima and physical actions, is also in Virgo. And here shortly, the Sun and mental Mercury will also shift into…yep you guessed it, Virgo as well.

The sign of Virgo is known as the sign of service, so helping others and especially lovers (since we are talking about Venus, the Goddess of Love) during this time can help fulfill a deep emotional need.

The shadowy side to this cycle is we can be quite critical, nit-picky, and anxious with lovers and those that near and dear to our hearts, but especially with ourselves. Remember, no one is perfect and we all make mistakes, so try not to judge to harshly! And learn how to forgive. You’ll be a much more healthy and happy person.

Show the one you love how you feel about them during this cycle, do something nice so they know just how much you care. ~Ruby

Weekly Astro Forecast for August 11-18


Catching a lucky break in this crazy world!”



Jupiter the planet of luck, abundance, and beliefs will finally be moving forward again and out of its Retrograde cycle on August 11.

Since last April, many of you have felt somewhat stuck and struggled with gaining clarity around important life decisions, especially about what you need and want to do next in life. But now, everything will slowly come back together again and things may just fall into place. Jupiter direct is going to be exactly what you need to get your luck and life moving forward again, and this time hopefully in the right direction. Meanwhile, wild and rebellious Uranus is about to make its big bold move, and start its backward motion into Retrograde.

Uranus turns Retrograde on the 11th, so expect the unexpected! And this can be good or bad. Some of you will receive some fantastic news, and things will magically open up and start going your way while the rest of you can get tripped up under these energies, and have some sort of shakeup in your personal life. 

Uranus slow down for its Retrograde cycle has already been quite a big part of all the chaos and violence going on around the world over the several weeks. Due to its slow down while in its Shadow period (before its actual Retrograde cycle.) Many of you have been on edge and experiencing major high anxieties! And some of you thought it was just mental Mercury coming out of its Retrograde cycle, when in all actuality it was a combo of these two Cosmic events that have been so disruptive and hard to handle. 

With Uranus Retrogrades we all can experience issues with energy, and have serious anxiety issues. Uranus is complicated but it rules over energy, and can cause disruptions, however, it also helps us think forward about the future, as it rules technology, the higher-mind, and our state of awareness! 

Remember we as humans go are just one big ball of energy, so this Retrograde cycle can cause us to feel off and out of sorts. Once you adjust to it, many of you will feel more calm again. But for now you must ride the waves of this Cosmic influence and take things as they come. 

No matter how these energies play out, August 11th is shaping up to be a pretty important day!

Here’s a rundown of the future Cosmic Connections for the next week.

On August 11, Jupiter turns direct in the sign of Sagittarius, and all you FIRE signs, Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius can be quite lucky through early December. But all of us no matter what are Zodiac Signs can benefit because the next week is just filled with amazingly high good energies. Also, if you are a Sagittarius or Gemini you could see some gains in the coming weeks ahead. But for all of us, things will start moving once again, especially now that Mercury is out of Retrograde.

Also on August 11th, Uranus aka George, (that was his first real name), turns Retrograde through Jan. 10, 2020. You may feel somewhat confused or conflicted over the next week while you adjust to its energy. Especially, if you are a Taurus born in April, an Aquarius born in January, a Scorpio born in October, or a Leo born in July! We’ve already been experiencing some chaotic energy due to this shift over the last several weeks with shocking events playing out. But as difficult as these lessons are to go through, the Universe is serving a huge WAKE-UP CALL! This energy gets our attention and helps us see how people are still trying to move backward, and are not progressing, and Uranus is about forward movement and progression. This planet’s influence helps us understand how to handle the higher vibrational energies that so many of us desperately seek. As it sends out amazing messages to help us understand what we can do next to build on to structures in our life and our world! It often causes rebellious behavior and revolution, as it is showing us to get out of our emotions long enough to take care of business and move forward and thrive. And with Uranus now in the sign of Taurus, its mission is to help show us how to save the human race!

Unfortunately, there will be more chaos to come during the Uranus in Retrograde cycle, and some of you may feel like life is taking you on a roller coaster ride and that you are spiraling out of control. But try to not worry things will calm back down as we adjust to this energy. Just remain cautious and pay attention to your surroundings for the time being.

On August 14th, the Sun Conjuncts lovely Venus, and oh what sweet energy this can be. It’s a time for love, romance, and socializing with friends and our soul tribes. If you are an Aquarius get out and date as you could fall head over heels for someone and end up dare I say in love! Some of you will even meet your future husband, wife, or partner during this time. All the Zodiac Signs can experience a strong love connection.

On August 15, there’s a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius at exactly 22 degrees.

This is symbolic as the number 22 is considered to be a “Master Number” in Numerology. This means this Full Moon is trying to put you on a path to reach greater balance and harmony in your life. You can manifest whatever energy you are focusing on or through your energy into. Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want or have already. It’s a good time for teamwork, and just hanging out with friends and your Soul Tribe. It’s also a good time to buy electronics that are used for communications, so this affects things like computers, phones, or tablets. However, with Uranus in Retrograde, there can be technical snafus and glitches to work around, so this could get interesting! 

On August 16th, mentally curious Mercury makes a tense Square to shocking Uranus. This is a day to pay attention and be extra cautious folks, as anxiety levels will be high and there can be some unexpected news! Expect the unexpected! People seriously can get out of control and take actions without thinking about their consequences first, as this energy is erratic and can be chaotic! This influence will start around the 14th with Uranus involved, as it always seems to come in extra early and it will run through the 18th.

On August 18, Mars the sign of motivation, aggression, and passion moves into the sign of Virgo until Oct 4th. This can have you feeling quite focused on something, but some folks are going to feel restless and getting your beauty rest may be more difficult than usual. This influence can affect your daydreams and night time sleep both. This does give us a burst of energy, as we roll into Autumn time. If you are not overly critical already, you just might find yourself feeling that way. But it is a good time to tackle all those little jobs or chores, as we are much more detailed than usual, so doing tedious work comes more naturally, and we can get quite a bit accomplished during this time.


Have a happy and safe week folks,

July Super “Black” New Moon

For All Zodiac Signs


On Wednesday, July 31st and Thursday, August 1st for some time zones, a powerful Super “Black” New Moon in the sign of Leo occurs.


The NEW MOON times are as follows.

Pacific Time, July 31 at 8:11 PM
Eastern Time, July 31 at 11:11 PM
Central Time, July 31 at 10:11 PM
Mountain Time, July 31 at 9:11 PM


Under the “Black” New Moon energy we all have an opportunity to tap into this strong, potent, and courageous Leo the Lion energy.

  • A Black Moon is the name of a second New Moon in one calendar month. For some folks this New Moon will occur on August 1st, but it’s still a Black Moon since it occurs so close to the end of the month. 
  • This Black Moon is a Super Moon this time around, and so it’s literally closer to Earth, so the tides and anything made of water here on planet Earth is affected by the Moon’s vibrational pull at this time.

This is an excellent time to think about our future goals. And all the characteristics of the sign that Leo represents. With the Moon and Sun both in the sign of Leo, there’s a double dose of Lion’s energy to work with. And add that Mars and Venus are also in the sign of Leo currently, and we have an abundance of this energy to tap into. We should be focusing our energy into the following things like enhancing our love life, as this is a time for romance, but also creative endeavors, andrelationships with our lovers, family members, and children.


Some things we should be working on for the next month are as followed.

  • Building up our self-confidence and pride in ourselves.  
  • Taking pride in ourselves as unique individuals.
  • Assuming responsibility for ourselves and our lives.
  • Putting our heart into all that we do, by giving of ourselves and being more warm and generous with others.

We should meditate and focus on the characteristics of this strong-willed, loving Fire Sign of the Zodiac, as we all have the sign of Leo somewhere in our Personal Astrology “Birth Chart.” Try to incorporate the following positive traits of the Sign of Leo into your life and personality.

  • Being Proud and showing Pride. 
  • Generosity, helping others for no reason. 
  • Hospitable, receiving or treating guests or strangers warmly and generously.
  • Caring and Warm towards others. 
  • Authoritative
  • Active
  • Open your heart. 

Over the next several days we should be able to improve certain parts of our lives, as this is a time to awaken your “inner child” and discover ways to creatively express yourself. We have a golden opportunity under all this potent Leo energy to make some significant changes to our lives that can benefit us long after this New Moon occurs. 


With the Sun and Moon in Leo squaring Uranus during the New Moon it’s important to watch yourself for acting on impulse, or for abruptly making changes or just rebelling. The desire to change and improve things around our romantic and personal life is strong, and we can be quite creative when doing so. So this can be a time of courage as we are more than ready for progress. And with Jupiter in a beautiful Trine to this New Moon we can certainly make some magic happen, just pay attention and be cautious. 


As this New Moon occurs in Leo, we are being shown how to lead our own lives. Each of us possess the power to take control of our lives, so we must take charge in any situation and make important decisions that will help us in the future. Follow your intuition, as you know what’s best for you! No one knows you better than you! Take some time to yourself and get comfy with your pack, and do what makes your heart happy. Don’t beat yourself up about what you think you should be doing, and allow the truth of who you are to set you free. Trust yourself and be authentic in all you do. Leo energy rules over the heart of any matter, which makes this the best time to work with the energies that are ruled by the heart. 


Setting Intentions with the New Moon

I cannot stress enough just how important it is this time around to do the work and Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists under this powerful, rare Super “Black” New Moon. Especially, since we have just dealt with so much life-changing transformational energy. This is the time to make some new plans and set some goals to help you bring in new beginnings and rewards, don’t worry about how big or small they are as in two week from now when the next Full Moon occurs you should start to see something begin. Just simply write it all down, and read it and than FEEL IT! Then since Leo is a Fire Sign many like to burn up what they have written and send the energies off to the Universe in hopes it will bring us what we have asked for.

This New Moon also brings in the start of a New Lunar Cycle, and this new energy comes after a series of very potent and transformative Eclipses in July. This new energy can help us calm down and work with any emotional wounds, changes, or transformations the July Eclipses may have brought up. If the Eclipses brought about some sort of change in your life, than this “Black” New Moon can help you handle whatever issues you have been dealing with, so you can begin to finally think about what to do next from a whole new perspective, and hopefully find some solid solutions. 

Under the influence of the “Black” New Moon, the Cosmos will usher in New Beginnings that so many of us have been wishing and hoping for, however, we are going to have to take things slow at first and give these new energies time to work their mojo! Especially, with mental Mercury coming out of it’s Retrograde cycle on the same day as the New Moon.

New Moons bring things to us like “moths to a flame”, so if you are aware or woke it’s a great time to Set Intentions with the Universe, just by simply making out some Wish Lists. With all this new energy coming in now and the effects of Mercury’s Retrograde after-Shadow period, you may have to do some soul-searching first to think about what intentions you really want to set for your future plans. We all have changed a little if we understand it or not, but we can feel it! As the Eclipses have now raised our vibrational energies, and this transformation requires us to make sure our intentions line-up together with this new energy. 

This New Moon is a great inspiration, and this is the time to think about what we want to bring into our lives next. But we must be patient, take the time to allow ourselves to simply be, and tune our hearts into the energy of the Cosmos to match up with the energy of our true soul journey! Then will be better able to take this new energy and manifest what we truly desire next in to happen in our lives.  

Have an amazing, blessed New Moon, 
~Ruby 


Welcome to Leo Season

For All Zodiac Signs!

It’s officially Leo Season now, as the Sun moves into the sign of Leo from July 22 through August 23.


During this time, we tend to feel more proud, outgoing, and playful. The Sun in Leo has us seeking out ways to be individuals, as we are not as content with being part of a team, and may feel more like taking the lead in some way. It’s a time to shine, and there is a little more color and drama added to our daily lives with the Sun in Leo, as are inner-performer is awakened during this time. We want to enjoy and express ourselves now, but we also can be much more generous and grand in our gestures and attitudes.


We all have the sign of Leo in our personal Astrology Birth Charts, it is the 5th sign of Zodiac, and represents the heart of matters and creativity! We enjoy having fun and being more playful during this time. But we also may need more attention from our loved ones, close circle, or soul tribe. This Leo influence can make us more self-expressive and we can end up over sharing information. We tend to emotionally stay strong on the outside, and appear brave and proud, but deep down we may have some emotional issues we are struggling with.


On the shadow side of this transit, we can be self-centered, vain, and Hangry! Eat well and often throughout the day while the Sun is transiting Leo, or you can get moody and that Lions purr can turn into a Roar! Otherwise take the time and enjoy it, do something fun.


Have a great Leo Season,
~Ruby

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse July 2019

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse
For All Signs Of The Zodiac 


The Moon is Full in the sign of Capricorn on July 16, 2019, and it’s a partial Lunar Eclipse. It comes together around 4:39 PM CST, 5:39 PM EDT.  The Eclipse occurs when the Moon in Capricorn opposes the Sun in Cancer.


This is an especially potent Full Moon, being its a Partial Lunar Eclipse, so our focus turns towards our relationships under this lunation. But also our work and family lives. 


Eclipses create the energy of crisis in our lives, and often they bring up what we are lacking. This is a time when we can suddenly realize there’s something missing, perhaps a need or want we can’t seem to fulfill. This Eclipse can actually split some relationships up, but it also brings folks together. Suddenly, we may realize that there’s a need to have other folks around helping support us. This is also about making sure the foundation of our soul tribe of friends and family is strong. But Lunar Eclipses are not always about relationships, they can also bring up certain needs in other areas of our life, such as our relationship to our work, or to our health and bodies, it really can be about anything. The Full Moon lights up our deeper feelings that have been just sitting below the surface to be dealt with. 


Under the Full Moon, we can be very emotional and express ourselves without warning. This is a time when some folks will claim out loud what they are really about and what they want in life. We are reacting from a strong but illogical emotional place. Lunar Eclipses are stronger and more potent than a normal Full Moon, so its effects can last up to about six months after it occurs. 


Lunar Eclipses are about relationships and are oppositions, this time around the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn are bumping against one another. So we must take a closer look at our needs, lacks and wants in our lives and create a balance around what we should be working on. This Full Moon is about our personal private lives, our need for a secure home base, and how we nurture ourselves. The other side of this energy is our public life, careers, reputations, and how we take responsibility. Being attached and love is ruled by Cancer, while our success and rewards and punishments are ruled by Capricorn energy, this polarity deals with balancing unconditional and conditional love. The Cancer energy involved encourages us to value our home life and that foundation, as well as our roots, while the Capricorn energy wants us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along with our professional lives. Cancer energy is about being content with being dependent, Capricorn wants us to grow the hell up and take responsibility! Cancer energy also represents the beginning and where we come from, and Capricorn is about the goals we set. Ideally, setting some sort of balance between these two energies is what the Full Moon is asking us to do.


This Full Moon is helping us learn how to strike a balance between our commitments to our work and families both. As we’ve been holding onto something emotionally that’s very important, as the Cosmos is reminding us via the Full Moon that it’s still there to let out and express how we are feeling, so these issues to be released. Hopefully, over time we’ll have all the information we need to better understand what all of this means.  


The Full Moon energy brings up an inner conflict to be dealt with, and it can prove difficult to sit with such strong feelings, so we need to find ways to express them. This causes that crisis situation, as some kind of sudden awareness around what we are lacking in our life usually comes up! This is an opportunity to figure out what we need. So during this highly emotionally charged time, our relationships can be challenging, and either broken or dramatically made even stronger. We also may experience some kind of major Ah-Ha moments or epiphanies. This leads us to learning more about what we don’t have and taking some actions to obtain it. 


Full Moons and especially Lunar Eclipses bring up issues in our lives to finish something. Our emotions are stronger than usual and there’s often some sort of drama involved around whatever part of our own personal Astrology Birth Chart the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is cruising through. That’s the area of our life that the Cosmos is pushing us to make much-needed changes in. There can be some serious drama in whatever part of our life this Eclipse is going through. So a path is often revealed to us, so we can move towards it and make things better, if we understand it or not, it is trying to align us with our true Soul Journey, as our life destiny is at play. Usually, these issues are something we’ve been sitting on or ignoring, so our emotions have been building, and this Eclipse helps us realize they are still there, we just haven’t chosen to work through them yet. The Full Moon’s light and energy draw them out into the open, so if we get in touch with our emotions we can get a much more clear idea about what actually needs to be done or changed and let go of.


The Lunar Eclipse occurring in the sign of Capricorn sets off our inner awareness about the flaws in the structures we’ve built in our lives, especially in our careers and involving our home and family life. So there are serious decisions that need to be made to fix things. This Lunar Eclipse is a powerful one with confrontational energy, because it’s making a conjunction to psychological and powerful Pluto, and is opposite Mercury (now in Retrograde). This brings out intense emotional reactions compulsive behavior, and of course, power struggles around crisis situations, so this can be quite a complicated time, as there’s a stronger need to do something, it can cause us to feel a sense of urgency. Take some time for yourself and try to relax while we get through this strong energy.

July’s Astro Forecast

For All Zodiac Signs 


On July 1, Mars the planet of passion, aggression, and drive entered the sign of Leo where it stays through August 18. Mars does well when it’s in a fire sign like Leo, this gives us back some motivation back to make things move forward. You might even feel pushed to get something done, but make sure it’s something you really want first. This energy can give us endurance while Mars the planet that helps us with physical movement is in Leo. Take this time to get some things done, as you will have at times a tremendous amount of energy. All the fire signs really can benefit from this influence, so Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo’s. But we all are feeling it!

On July 2, an intense Solar Eclipse in the sign of Cancer occurred. Eclipses bring change and this one continues to bring huge shifts and changes that will affect anything to do with home and family matters. Eclipses also bring about significant endings and new beginnings! This particular Eclipses influence is basically around our home base and concerning our family with it in the sign of Cancer. This has opened up issues that need to be worked on and these problems are awful hard to ignore, as the Eclipse has put them right up in our face to deal with. It is believed that whatever issues this Eclipse has brought up can be felt for up to 6 months after it occured, so it can be difficult if we don’t choose to deal with them. With this Eclipse occurring in the sign of Cancer we are extremely sensitive about these issues, so don’t allow yourself to hide and sulk, make sure to take care of whatever needs to be worked on.

On July 3, Venus moved into the sign of Cancer until July 27. This helps all the Zodiac Signs to be more soft and easy-going, so we can build upon on our serious and intimate relationships, and this will also lead to serious commitments in our relationships. This influence can also help you restore relationships that have suffered damaged both in love and within your family. But this energy also really pumps up all you Cancer Sun Signs, as you’ll be drawn to all that is beautiful. 

On July 7, Mercury goes Retrograde
This runs through July 31. All of us need to slow down and rethink things and just try to enjoy the rest of the summer, instead of allowing the other Cosmic Influences pushing us to make major changes. This affects all of us so make sure to take your time, and just expect technical glitches and misunderstandings to occur and don’t make a big deal out of them. 

On July 8, Mercury conjuncts Mars
People are riled up by this influence and can get quite nasty. So debates and arguments can happen quickly and without little warning! A war of words can be especially strong, so be extra careful with how you communicate, or you could land in a serious verbal throwdown. This also can make people more physically aggressive, and even violent so be careful. Choose your battles wisely!

On July 9, Sun opposes Saturn
This influence can feel overwhelming with pressure to get things done and to take care of business. But it’s important to not take on more than you usually do, and don’t try to take on a lot of difficult things during this time. So maybe take on only half of what you normally do. Because one or two tasks are going to feel like more than enough. Do whatever you can to not stress. 

On July 11, Sun Trines Neptune
This will be a lovely energy and a time for love and romance, or just hanging out with friends. This feel-good energy creates the best vibe to leave your worries behind from earlier in the week. We all can benefit from this positive energy. All you Pisces and Cancer folks can have an especially good day! 

On July 11, Mars squares Uranus
Also, be ready to change something as the planet of action receives some sort of surprising message from rebellious Uranus. You may have to stand up for yourself or get away from someone or some sort of circumstance. This will start being felt probably about 3 to 4 days prior to peaking out, and people tend to get quite worked up and anxious during its run. Just go with this energy, don’t let whatever it brings up in your life throw you too far off track. All our plans can use some new and fresh energy and ideas. This is a time to get creative and perhaps start something, but make sure you are honest with yourself when doing so. This aspect reminds us to do things our way even while other folks are given their opinions. 

On July 14, Sun opposes Pluto
The Sun opposes Pluto once a year marking the midway point of the Pluto Retrograde period that began on April 24. Any opposition is a culmination of forces already set in motion. With the Sun in homebody Cancer and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn, it is important to create a balance between your personal family life with your worldly and career goals. Pluto’s themes of power help you to examine your own places in your life that you have control or power in. Often this aspect, brings someone or something in your world that opposes you causing you to take a better look at the power you share with others or the balance in power you have in your relationships.  Is it time to step up and take on your own power or perhaps let go of the control? 

On July 16, Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Capricorn
The Full Moon occurs in steady, grounded Capricorn, and a partial Lunar Eclipse which is basically a supercharged and intense Full Moon also comes together. This is when the Earth’s shadow falls between the Sun and the Moon, this is typically the brightest lunation of the month, but it will be shadowed by darkness due to the Eclipse. This is an emotional high tide, as we get to experience why we are feeling so flooded by emotions. With this being in the sign of Capricorn the sign of responsibility and authority, and the Moon conjuncts Pluto and Saturn, you may just get a stronger sense of what you want to be responsible for anymore and what you don’t. You can make the most of this energy by finding some sort of balance between your personal and professional life. As this illumination comes forth things like shadows, secrets, and repressed feelings that might have seemed too big or scary to get your attention and expression before come alive! Changes that have been occurring sort of behind the scenes and deep within ourselves are brought up and out to deal with first hand, and we can see significant changes and completions.

On July 19, Mercury while Retrograde re-enters Cancer
The planet of communication returns back into the sensitive sign of Cancer, so it’s important to pay attention to what you are thinking about the most in your conversations over this last week of July. You can come back and look at your ideas later and revisit whatever you need to. For now, your thoughts and words are infused with emotion, which can actually help you out. Just make sure to speak from the heart and let your words take it from there, anything we communicate will be able to help folks understand what you are trying to say. Be patient with others and objective. 

On July 22nd, the Sun Enters Leo, (Leo Season Begins)
The Sun moves into the sign of fiery, cautious, dramatic Leo. During this time our aggression and passion run stronger than usual, and there can be ego trips and battles. We tend to express ourselves from the heart in a more authentic way! So there will be a whole lot of truth-telling going around, and oversharing. This influence can help us feel more optimistic and confident, so we can make important contacts and strengthen bonds with our current tribe and lovers if we try. This is a time to have some fun and enjoy yourself, let your inner child out to play.

On July 31, New Moon in Leo
A New Moon always signals a new beginning and this one is in a fire sign that ignites your creativity and passion. Don’t let anything hold you back from pursuing your goals. This is a great time to accept invitations to events and parties, start a new hobby, or sign up for a class. Whatever you do, start something whether you pursue a dream, an idea, plan or project. As always, at any New Moon, invest in what you want to grow or become more important in your life by Setting Your Intentions with the Moon’s energy! This also happens to be the second New Moon in one month, therefore, it is called a Black Moon and this is super strong, potent energy that can be very helpful. 

On July 31, Mercury goes direct!
Mercury Retrograde periods can be annoying and quite difficult to navigate that is for sure, but they are also the best times for gathering information and returning to old ideas and conversations. Hopefully, you have used these last three weeks, to review your options and reconsider some of your plans. If you have held off on making important decisions, your patience is now rewarded. Don’t be shy about letting people know what you want, and reach out to those who can help you. It’s time to communicate what you have learned and move forward with your plans.


What a crazy month folks, with so many twist and turns! There will be lots of changes under the two Eclipses, Mercury’s Retrograde cycle, and a Saturn/Pluto Aspect to deal with. However, don’t feel too badly, because looking ahead August feels so much better, at least overall. It looks like it will be a month of relief that we so desperately will need from some of the wild more unpredictable Eclipse energies we are dealing with now, so its energies will be a welcome change.


Looking ahead to August of 2019, it looks to be like a time to work on our health and build up our immune systems while we can, at least before we get into late fall. As this year looks to be an extreme cold and flu season, due to Neptune being in its own sign of Pisces and in Retrograde. This increases illness, as many of you are already experiencing. So we can beat this if we get prepared ahead of time. Mars also will be making some harsh aspects to the Sun in Virgo with Neptune and Uranus involved, so that can also lower our immunity as well. So please start boosting your immune system this summer any way you can. 

Have an amazing July,
~Ruby

New Moon Setting Intentions Guide

“New Moon Setting Intentions Guide”


There’s a New Moon occurring soon, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish Lists or Intentions can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.


*Setting Intentions*

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:

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.

Step One: Clear Your Sacred 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!


Finally, 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!

Have a blessed New Moon and good luck. ~Ruby

Neptune Retrograde 2019

On 21st of June Neptune turns Retrograde.
Discover your inner-muse?


This fog rolls in and casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes in regards to what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self.

This is an excellent time to strengthen your spiritual game folks, start a journal and record your dreams as well, make a vision board, and tune into what people are not saying rather than their words. Your intuition and psychic hunches are strong as this mystical planet changes direction. However, your logical mind is taking a vacay for the next 5 months! So trying to figure out where other folks are coming from, or finding information can be difficult, (especially while Mercury is in Retrograde as well!)

During this cycle you will be required to pay extra careful attention to the details as they will be elusive. And since we can be vulnerable now, and way more into the fantasies that play in our heads, assume if something sounds too good to be true, that it probably is! Don’t be a victim during this time which is the Shadow side of Neptune, we can be suckers and get taken if we don’t pay attention! It’s also all about the escape during this Neptune’s Retro period, it might be all to easy to leave your responsibilities behind and not deal with the reality of what is happening in the here and now on planet Earth!

This influence can get some of you into trouble if you choose to delve into things like alcohol, or drugs just to escape. It’s important to have a support system if you feel weak. So make sure and talk about how you are feeling to someone, during this time, let those pent up emotions out and be motivated by the fact that Neptune’s Retrograde cycle can indeed be a time to heal the spirit. This is a time to discover what helps inspire you, and find your own inner-muse!

Stay creative and tap into the best part of this energy!
