The NEW MOON is in the sign of ARIES this April of 19, and it brings in fresh and new energy. This particular trailblazing NEW MOON is when the Sun in ARIES and the MOON in ARIES both make a rather harmonious connection. ARIES energy is always about New Beginnings, and NEW MOON’S are about starting a NEW CYCLE in our life. So this fiery lunation is strong and potent! When we think of Spring time it’s about renewal and new Beginnings, and this is the perfect energy to line up right along with the start of the new season.
During this time we should be able to take the lead and move forward in our lives, and be the warrior like this ARIES energy and charge ahead! This is the time to take action, try something new and innovative, and go after what you want. Don’t be afraid and let your confidence take you where it needs to. ARIES energy can help you learn how to be assertive without being harmful. It’s a time to take charge of our lives and start something new and different. The lessons ARIES hands out is about staying young, and connecting to your inner child in some way, but it’s also trying to teach you how to be bold and learn more about your own personal courage.
Now that mental MERCURY is freshly out of its Retrograde cycle, the energy of strength helps you to better understand yourself, so you can do some soul searching through journal-keeping, meditation, or exercise. You have an opportunity to start this cycle off on a good note and make the changes you’ve been patiently waiting to make while MERCURY was in RETROGRADE, it was a long one.
This is a good time to set goals, plans, and commitments that are more realistic. “Go big and go hard” is a good ARIES Mantra, no matter how big or small you set your sights, you should start to notice things happening within a few weeks by the next FULL MOON. Later, you may get to reap the rewards from whatever new beginnings you begin.
ARIES is the first sign of the ZODIAC, so this being a NEW MOON makes it especially strong with opportunity for New Beginnings. It is a time to actually act on impulse if you are careful of course, follow your gut instincts, your intuition, and take some risks. Aries is a sign that teaches us to take action and learn through our experiences. So get out there and have some sort of adventure!
This is also a good cycle to learn more about how to keep things real, ARIES teaches all of us a valuable lesson around expressing ourselves in a more authentic way and without being false. This helps you to better rely on yourself and to be happy about doing so, so you can be put you on a path towards finding inner peace and ridding any anxiety you may be experiencing around being alone. Then you can be self-sufficient and not worry so much about blaming those who weren’t always there.
“This is a time to break your normal everyday routines and have experiences that involve doing something new, this can help you feel more alive and worthy.”
However, this particular NEW MOON is forming a tense square to taskmaster SATURN, which means some paths towards our New Beginnings might be blocked. Some kind of plan or expectations you have may not startmoving as quickly as you thought they would.Hopefully, since we are in a unique time Astrologically with NO major planets or cosmic bodies in RETROGRADE, eventually theenergies will get moving after we deal withSATURN’S challenges.
For All, you fellow ASTROLOGY freaks this NEW MOON phase occurs at 15 degrees and 17 mins of ARIES, which tends to affect folks born with their personal planets and points at 11 to 19 degrees of the Cardinal Signs of the ZODIAC (ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, and CAPRICORN.)
NEW MOON TIMES LA: Friday, April 5, 1:50 am CHICAGO: Friday, April 5, 3:50 am NY: Friday, April 5, 4:50 am LONDON: Friday, April 5, 9:50 am SYDNEY: Friday, April 5, 7:50 pm
April is a busy month, so get ready folks, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all going into Retrograde phases this month, it’s a time for reassessment around what you are doing in your life. And with four planets in magical Pisces, the focus is more on imagination and illumination than practical matters. This period is wonderful for creativity and spiritual exploration but it’s best to wait until at least April 5th before making decisions that require focus, or a the very least some careful thought and consideration.
Since our plans and projects will be under such an intense review throughout the month of April we must make sure an align our goals with our life’s purpose. It’s also a good time to stop any activities that just are simply holding you back, or aren’t serving you. Quit wasting valuable time and energy. If you take the time to review your goals and plans this month than you’ll probably see progress in the fall when things really take off again. But for now, you have some lessons to get through and hopefully learn from.
April 2nd – Creative Confusion
Mercury just recently out of its Retrograde cycle (but still in the after Rx Shadow phase through the 16th) makes a powerful connection to Neptune the king of dreams and escape. Mercury rules our mind and how we think, communicate, and perceive information. Neptune rules over things like our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. This influence can inspire you and others, so you may feel highly creative. This also can help you communicate your dreams to the person you adore.
But it’s also causing confusion with mental Mercury just in the after-Shadow period of Retrograde, also in Pisces, as well as Neptune. All in all, this energy can make things unclear and foggy. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t get ripped off or scammed, deception is in the air right now. Find ways to be inspired, get creative and this fog will finally be lifting for good in a few days.
April 4th – Power Moves
Powerful Pluto makes an intense connection to the Lunar South Node point both in the sign of Capricorn. Some folks could try to make bold moves to gain power or control during this time. So there may be some pretty wild upheavals. There can be ego battles that can be destructive in one way or another. If you force issues on others without taking responsibility for your own actions it can backfire on you. This is not a good time to just go after things on a whim without seriously taking consideration your consequences. Take some time to evaluate your goals and make plans for your next move, so you can get what it is you really want, but just make sure to not bump heads along the way, or it will only cause you more problems.
April 5th – New Moon in Aries – New Beginnings
There’s a New Moon in the sign of Aries occurring and whatever you’ve been planning or working on can finally start to get moving. This energy gives us a chance to breathe new life into already existing projects. This is all about “New Beginnings” in a big bold way! As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about courage, and it gives us a huge dose of higher confidence and energy to take on our tasks, projects, and goals and make things happen! The Pluto-South Node alignment is also occurring around the same time frame, so this can help us to be more practical, even if we are more daring with new and innovative ideas. If you already know enough to make an informed decision, it’s important to not be indecisive. Try to be patient and look for more information around the next Full Moon on April 19 that will help you know what to do next.
April 10 – A Reality Check
The Sun is making a tense Square formation with taskmaster Saturn. It’s important to know what responsibilities you want to take on and what you don’t, it’s a good time for some assessment of your life. as you will be challenged to rid of the things that you are doing too much of or that might be taking up to much of your time and energy. It’s no longer “go big or go home,” instead your mantra for this time should be, “go small or give in! Create balance around what you want and that is for the greater good of everyone.
April 10 – Take a Step Back
Giant Jupiter is going to be making its yearly backward trip as it enters its Retrograde cycle for nearly four months. Making progress will come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection into what gives your life deeper meaning, and what helps you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde it can seriously slow us down as it’s an influence is more intense feeling. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from feeling happy or satisfied. Every now and then the Universe has a way of making us take a time out to review our lives, to make sure that our plans and projects are still what we want and need. Through August 11th is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals, and to rid of any distractions that waste your time, energy, and money! Don’t worry about the projects that slowly go to the waste side, as they were a waste of your time anyway, During this cycle whatever plans don’t make the cut will turn out to probably be a blessing in disguise. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. You got a long time to sort it all out. If you happen to know your Astrology Birth Chart, you can look up just exactly what part of your chart this cycle is cruising through to get more information.
April 13 – Power Moves
The Sun is making a tense Square to potent Pluto! With the Sun’s transit through the sign of Aries, most of us are trying to initiate something, but we might have to deal with some powerful energies for a few days. Perhaps a person who has their own agenda or situation might ask you to change something up that throws your original plans out the window! It’s a time to be paying close attention and for being more mindful of other folks needs, besides your own. You can’t always take and take from others and expect something if you are not giving anything back in return. You can also be challenged in some way to make sure you are empowering yourself. Don’t be stubborn and don’t give everything away either. You will know when the time comes what you need to do if you pay attention to your signs and messages from the Universe during this powerful few days.
April 17 – Quick Thinking
The planet of communication Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries that brings amazing new insights and flashes of genius. This can help us take any plans or projects we might have new directions. Just make sure these directions are on a path towards your life’s purpose in some way and not a huge detour. Take this time to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging, as this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that Aries is known for being the God of War. It’s not a time to be debating or arguing or you can get caught up in all the negative drama and those great ideas won’t get moving forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this transits that will run through May 6th.
April 19 – Full Moon in Libra – Balancing the Chaos
When the Sun in Aries makes a tense but exciting connection to the Moon in Libra a Full Moon will occur. We are just coming out of the New Moon cycle at this point that started on April 5th. This Full Moon cycle is at what’s called the critical degree or anaretic degree, this means completion and marks the end of one cycle and the evolution into another. This Full Moon in Libra, the sign of balance and integration, encourages us to find ways to leave behind anything that is standing in our way of finding balance. Something might have to come to an end in order for us to find peace and harmony. This is also a time of culmination as you get a chance to take a step back and see if you are doing right by others and if you are paying attention to the folks in your life and their needs and desires. It’s all about being fair as our sense of justice is stronger than usual, put your focus on strengthening the bonds in your current relationships. Even though the Full Moon is always a time of endings, it is a time to work on releasing the energies that no longer are working for you. But this will be a social Full Moon time, so it’s a great energy to have a party under or to spend some time with a close BFF, and since Libra is about relationships maybe have a romantic dinner with the object of your affection.
April 20 – Sun enters Taurus
This Sun cycle is a time when we simply slow down, but we are also more determined, patient, and stubborn. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable. This is a great help with so many other cosmic connections during this time speeding things up, we can take a time out and look more closely at events unfolding around us or any complicated situations we are involved in with some common sense. This transit highlights things that are pleasing, beautiful, and attractive. 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 camp for the next month to make sure you have a safe and cozy place to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we enjoy more so, whatever pleases the senses, with things like food, music, entertainment, and sexual activities, (especially with Mars in the sign of Gemini as well, bow-chicka-bow-wow) we can have an incredibly sexy month. This cycle runs through May 21st.
April 20 – Blazing Love
The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, this brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. This cycle brings love on rather quickly, 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 much more direct than usual with the folks we love and care for, some of you might be more reserved about your deeper emotions, and if you are feeling insecure you can get kind of aggressive or mean, especially if someone isn’t validating or expressing love back. This can cause some folks to be more sneaky and strategic when it comes to matters of the heart or anything involving money. Under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t look back to the past, it is a time to move forward. Each day is looked at as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more. We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fiery energy to reignite their passions, and if single love that is initiated now can sizzle out fast. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you want a new commitment around love or money, but also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term unless you are just looking for a hookup! This will run through May 15th.
April 22 – Exciting Journeys
A new exciting journey begins with the Sun making a connection called a “conjunction” to more unpredictable Uranus! This can be a liberating experience as we move forward from old habits and ways of thinking, especially about ourselves. Staying positive is key to being successful under this cycle, as it may not be as stable as some would like, but good things can happen. It’s a time to put your past behind you where it belongs, and keep an open mind about other people and embrace new thoughts and ideas. Most of all stay true to yourself and honor other people’s desire to express who they are and their own unique qualities.
April 24 – Power Plays – Pluto Retrograde
Powerful Pluto challenges us on how we use and gain personal power, when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough of power, and others are nervous when they have more, and then there are a few folks who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around well, power, people rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays for power made. 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 and their 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 to how to move forward in ways that make us happy, 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.
April 29 – Saturn goes Retrograde – Taking Responsibility
Saturn the planet of rules and boundaries goes into its yearly Retrograde phase. This is a time when we must review our lives and make sure what we going after is exactly what we still want. This Retro period lasts through September 18th. During this Retro cycle, we are taken back over territory that we probably have already been through at one point. Saturn is about taking our responsibilities, rules, and boundaries more seriously. So there are going to be areas of your life that are important to go back over and review, to see what you can do to make these situations more secure. This can be a frustrating time, so we have to face possible limitations, barriers, or working on ending habits that aren’t so good for our future long-term success.
April 30 – Saturn in Retrograde gets a boost!
To further enhance Saturn in Retrogrades energies, Saturn is in a conjunction with the Lunar South Node point. You may want to think about what you are being responsible for? Are you taking other folks burdens on or taking care of other people’s obligations? Do you think you should be the one in charge and are telling everyone else what you think they should be doing? Are you taking the steps to fix things when something comes up or are you enabling bad behavior? During this cycle, it’s time to go over your responsibilities and let go of old habits, old learned behaviors, and ways of thinking around who’s in charge and why!
So how will it affect you? And how can you use this time to your advantage?
Mercury the planet of communication, perception, and travel goes into its first Retrograde of 2019, occurring in the sign of healing Pisces from March 5 – 28, and at 29 degrees, which is the anaretic degree or point of crisis (which tends to be harsher at this point.) This Mercury in Retrograde cycle seems to resurrect old situations or problems that we thought we were done and over with, only for us to have to deal with all over again. This is a time when we need a lot of rest, and to really focus on being kind to one another. Some folks might be quite mean or cruel, but don’t allow yourself to go there, instead focus on being kind and compassionate. This is a time to make sure and set some healthy boundaries, as we are more susceptible and vulnerable to manipulation and deception, especially during the last part of Mercury in Retrograde at the end of March when Mercury is conjunct Neptune, Pisces ruling planet. This can cause our thoughts to be foggy and can make things even more confusing, and it being Retrograde time it can even stronger than usual.
It’s important to remember that just because Mercury is in Retrograde we shouldn’t stop our lives! This cycle gives us a chance to reflect on our past and search our own belief system in a more deep spiritual way. For this next three weeks there’s an opportunity to connect stronger to our own feelings and how we can meet our own personal needs. This process can be very internal as we should be doing things for ourselves, learning how to understand who we by being kind and compassionate. I invite you to talk to your version of divinity, the powers that be, the God of your understanding or knowiness. And ask what you can do for you, and how can you take better care of yourself?
Now that you have this info, the question is what can you do with it? Well here is some advice on how to survive a Mercury in Retrograde cycle.
First off always read over what you’re doing, and read it again and don’t sign any contracts unless it’s something you have to do, or make any new commitments again unless it’s something you have to do right away.
If you decide to do business during this cycle, make sure to ask for a second opinion, and be aware of the details for the next three to five weeks, because you should think about the more wonky time of Mercury’s Retrograde phase, which is the after Shadow time for 2 weeks after its Retrograde cycle, as things are slowly getting back to normal, it can be intense for some. Make sure to check in with your own intuition or higher-self, and stay open-minded as much as possible when making decisions. If you have any resources with someone else, like in a relationship or financially, this is a good time to go over the details.
Negotiations can go well if you make minor adjustments, but no permanent commitments during this cycle. Going over details can benefit you, do anything it takes to keep from overlooking important details or miscommunication. I have seen first hand how Mercury in Rx cycles can cause misunderstandings, as we can get easily frustrated with each other without any real rhyme or reason, it might just not make sense! Also, make sure your tolerant to being asked questions over and over, but be open to the fact that our perception has dipped down into a lower vibrational energy that causes real issues for all of us, and that it may never make sense.
This is a great time to re-evaluate and re-organize your life, work on our thought patterns and how you make decisions. You can walk away from this cycle learning a very valuable tool what works for you and what doesn’t in a deeper way. This cycle provides time for us to do-over anything we want, you can retrace your steps and make things better now. Remember planets go Retrograde all the time, you have lived through many Mercury in Retrograde cycles before and more than likely you will get through this one as well. Mercury also rules our minds and our day-to-day decisions, so when it comes to communication make sure that you pay attention, read over anything again and if you don’t understand, and ask if you head things right the first time, and also use spell check because you’re going to need it!
Often during a Mercury in Rx friends from the past, family members, and clients will pop back in our lives! Again this can be a good thing, this doesn’t need to be negative. But it does not necessarily mean if a lover or even a friend from the past shows up that is is meant to be or fated to be together forever, it simply means there is unfinished business or something you need to pay attention to heal, there is always a lesson in Mercury’s madness.
It’s my wish for you to be educated more so on the benefits of this transit versus the negativity that Retrograde planets get, and I am not above it to be honest, as many Mercury in Retrograde cycles have hit me very hard, and if you know me you know how much I can dislike this time. But we are in this together, so perhaps together you can walk away using some of this advice and make the most out of this energy. When planets go Retrograde (Rx), the cosmos is giving us a second chance at something and even a third, because it allows you to retrace your steps three times, that’s how they work! So we get to go back and do things over, before moving forward again. Sometimes this is a huge blessing, as they say the second time around can be the best and even a third under this influence. May this Mercury in Retrograde cycle be a good one.
Have a good Mercury in Retrograde, may it be a easy one for you.
March is always quite an important month as it’s a huge turning point and brings new fresh energy into our lives. There’s a lot of changes going down this month so we can feel these potent energies strongly. Many of you will continue to move forward and see progress in March, but we must be mindful that we are under Mercury in Retrogrades thumb for the rest of the month. Which makes it a good time to clear out old energies and get organized, so once March is over and we’re in Aries Season, then we can start new projects and follow our dreams with gusto once again. For now, this is a month to prepare and plan.
1st – 4th – Venus Square Uranus
When Venus makes a tense connection to shocking Uranus, our love relationships stability can be challenged with unexpected desires, urges, or events. But sometimes a challenge is what breathes new life into a relationship. We are going to start to feel this probably around Feb 27th and it can go on through the 4th. There’s an increased need for freedom and excitement, as this influence can test your patience when it comes to a loved one, or it can lead to wandering eyes or outright cheating! If you have been feeling confined, smothered, or just bored then you could end up lashing out in anger, or display some sort of destructive behavior. If you’re in a healthy relationship you shouldn’t have any major drama or problems, especially with an open-minded partner.
There’s a stronger need to experiment in the bedroom or maybe even on the kitchen table lol, as this influence pumps up our sexual activity, or satisfies a deeper need to increase our stimulation. The more demanding or conservative your partner is the more likely they are to stir up trouble, and you could end up cheating or having an affair! And if you try and resist these urges for change and excitement, and keep your feelings hidden or bottled up under this spontaneous energy, then it is likely your partner or friend, whatever the case may be, will express this energy through some sort of unexpected or sudden action.
Luckily, we aren’t as daring as one might think so we can enjoy entertainment, amusement, and novelties. If you are single you may be attracted to exciting or eccentric people, and maybe those who are more willing to take risks, or who are from a different cultural or ethnic backgrounds. A new romance or a love affair is very possible now, but be careful as these are likely to be brief relationships unless something in your personal Astro Birth Chart indicates otherwise. Let’s also talk about retail therapy, we can end up buying on impulse as shopping can be taken to a whole new level, so watch for spending way too much and for making unnecessary purchases.
5th – Mercury goes Retrograde
Mercury goes into its first Retrograde of 2019, occurring in the sign of Pisces from March 5 – 28, and at 29 degrees, which is the anaretic degree or point of crisis (which tends to be harsher feeling.) This Mercury in Retrograde cycle seems to resurrect old situations or problems that we thought we were done and over with, only for us to have to deal with all over again. This is a time when we need a lot of rest, and to really focus on being kind to one another. Some folks might be quite mean or cruel, but don’t allow yourself to go there, instead focus on compassion. This is a time to make sure and set some healthy boundaries, as we are more susceptible and vulnerable to manipulation and deception, especially during the last part of Mercury in Retrograde in the end of March when Mercury is conjunct Neptune, Pisces ruling planet. This causes our thoughts to be foggy and can make things even more confusing, and it being Retrograde time it will be even stronger than usual.
6th – New Moon
There will be a healing New Moon on March 6th, in the sign of Pisces, and this influence actually helps us focus on the magic of life and be a little more clear about how to start anything new. But it also brings about emotional uncertainty, as this magical New Moon bestows us with deep magical vibes and helps restore our imagination. During this New Moon take some time to create a sacred space that you can play and zen out in, and perhaps reach some sort of spiritual enchantment that syncs your physical reality and fantasies. Breathe and relax and feel out things, and look for the deeper meaning of it all. This is a time for creators, manifestos, intuitive, sensitives, and healers. New Moons are a time to regenerate, but this is also particularly charming energy due to it being in such close connection to spiritual Neptune, the planet of dreams, mysticism, and inspiration. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by to connect to the possibilities available to you. The veils are very thin still, therefore, it’s easier to discover the magic and use it in your everyday life. Our confidence and energy levels are quite high now so we are being enlightened with wisdom, so we should use it to our advantage.
6th – Uranus moves into Taurus
On March 6th, 2019, Uranus moves out of Aries, and into the sign of Taurus.
Uranus is the most exciting planet in the Cosmos, it brings about major energy shifts, and the winds of change are blowing this month when it changes signs into the bull, Taurus, where it will stay for nearly a decade! So there will be a lot of movement happening as we get adjusted to this shift. It encourages us to break down old worn out patterns and outdated structures so we can explore the potential of what could be.
We’re in hot energy right now with Uranus in the anaretic degree of Aries which is called the crisis point. It’s a time to tie up loose ends, as we can feel like starting and finishing things quickly while we have the chance. With Uranus in Taurus and with Uranus in Taurus, we can focus on a whole new shift, a whole new phase, a whole new decade of life.
Uranus moves very slowly around the Zodiac wheel and spends approximately seven and a half years in each sign. If you pay attention to the effects of Uranus as it goes through each sign, you will see just how unique each of these energies affects the political structures now crumbling to the ground. While Uranus was in the sign of Aries all these years, millions of us started to assert our political beliefs and develop commitments to fighting for the people and causes that are important to us.
The sign of Taurus rules over money, food, agriculture, and resources. With the planet Uranus in this nurturing sign, we can expect to see major changes in these areas of our lives on both a global and personal level.
This also will affect how we make, spend, and save money. And with all the sneaky nasty agricultural practices going on nowadays, we might start to see some justice finally. As these topics are going to be under a microscope for review for the next seven years. Uranus is going to shake things up and create necessary changes that we all need to continue to survive on this planet. Hopefully, we will see these changes help us all to be healthier for future generations to live on the planet.
20th – Spring Equinox
On March 20th, also the day of the Vernal Equinox marks the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This is when the ice and snow finally melt and the ground starts to thaw and Sun shines a little brighter every day. It’s a promise of warmth and abundance to come. With the Sun in Aries on this day, it’s influence sparks the energy we need to get pumped up into high gear and prepare for the excitement that is to come.
20th – Full Moon in Libra
Also on March 20th the Full Moon in Libra occurs. Under the Full Moon we often find ourselves trying to balance ourselves out emotionally. This time the Moon in Libra and the Sun in Aries oppose each other. So this starts an internal struggle within each of us to equal things out, between how both these energies affect us.
Libra being the sign of partnership is about everyone else’s needs, while Aries is more focused on self and our personal needs. This Full Moon is making a close connection to the “wounded healer” Chiron. This brings up old grievances just enough, that we can feel left out or put second, or we might feel compelled to examine the pain of putting ourselves last just to get other people’s approval.
If you feel any of your old emotional wounds are being triggered, don’t ignore it! Make yourself understand why you feel the way you do, so you can release the old pain. Full Moon’s are an ideal time to liberate yourself from old trauma, anxiety, and old resentments.
So in many ways this month puts us into a state of duality, where we feel a stark contrast between two different kinds of energies that represent what we want, versus what we truly desire. The challenging part will be learning how to embrace each different influence and gaining the wisdom that comes from wanting to know what these lessons are trying to teach us.
26th —Venus moves into the sign of Pisces, right at the end of the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and tries to help us come out of the Retrograde with greater sensitivity, compassion, intuition, and spirituality. This is a blessing considering how agitating it can be when we are trying to adjust to Mercury’s shift out of Retrograde, as it goes back to its normal speed and pace once again, this is called the Shadow period.
31st – Mars is the planet that motivates us, fuels our passions and drive, and also rules over our sexual activities and how we handle our anger! Mars closes this month out by entering the sign of the twins, Gemini on the 31st. This brings in a surge of energy that affects us more mentally. There can be a stronger than usual interest in all that is intellectual, including our hobbies. We can enjoy communicating with people, especially face to face, by phone, online, or through social media even more so than usual.
We can focus better on new ideas and plans, and can get excited about what we come up with. This influence promotes strong communication, but it can be a whole lot of energy and be over stimulating for some folks. It’s like drinking large amounts of caffeine, and some folks may feel so jacked up that they have trouble relaxing because they can’t turn their minds off, so sleep and insomnia can be an issue under this influence. We may work harder to bring our ideas and plans to life, and actually pursue opportunities that make things happen!
Enjoy your month and if you need guidance or some clarity please get with me about a Reading Session.
The Sun has shifted into imaginative and compassionate Pisces today, February 18, 2019, and remains there through March 20, 2019. So it’s officially season. This energy is about connecting to your spiritual/highest-self. It’s a sensitive, wistful, compassionate time. We are strongly in tune with our powers of intuition and emotions. Making decisions or commitments may not be easy under the influence, but tapping into our intuition is.
While the Sun is in Pisces our inner muse must be nurtured and connected too, this helps us heal and move forward. The veils between this world and other realms come down now and boundaries dissolve so we can feel energetically connected to other people and their energies. It’s important to be kind to yourself and others during this time, and surround yourself with loving positive energy.
We’re plugged into everything around us because the veils between this physical world and other spiritual realms have dissolved. As these boundaries come down we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. so if you consider yourself to already be a sensitive, Psychic, or Empath, might I suggest putting up some sort of spiritual shields to block out outside energies.
Pay attention to when you sense someone else’s feelings rather than your own and don’t attach to them. We’re more aware of the energies around us and are like sponges absorbing all of what we experience. We’re more sensitive and emotional during this time, so we tend to express ourselves in more creative spiritual ways.
It’s a good time to dissolve any fears or doubts you’ve been holding on to, so let go of illusions and daydreams that have no real way of ever coming true. Instead, practice connecting to our higher-self through spiritual practices and getting involved in creative endeavors. Allow this energy to flow and just be. So being involved in things like music and energy healing can help us feel more vital, and raises our personal vibration. It’s important to take time-outs and listen to our intuition now, but if we choose to ignore these feelings or messages we get from the Universe, we can become anxiety-ridden and easily frustrated.
Our bodies and minds sync deeply together now, trying to stay with the beat of the Universe, as Pisces energy is more ethereal and dreamy feeling. Our dream world awake and asleep can be very strong, and those who have crossed often show up to visit during this time, (especially, since we are just about to start the shadow period of Mercury’s Retrograde phase, also in the sign of Pisces!), these energies tend to bring back things from the past.
The more shadow side to this energy is we can feel more like escaping our reality, so this can be done with drugs or substances that only harm us in the end. We are more vulnerable to the world’s harsh reality and energies, which can make us feel emotionally down and out, and some folks may start feeling down or depressed by this influence. It’s important to connect to your spiritual self as I mentioned to keep your vibrational energy higher and avoid these pitfalls.
To do well in this energy you should allow things to just be, and stay aware of your surroundings, ask yourself what your resisting and stop or it will persist.
“How does the ‘Full Moon’ affect you, and how do you utilize its potent energy?”
During a ‘Full Moon’ you have an opportunity to bring about some positive changes in your life if you use this energy wisely. It either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball, the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder about how to work with the ‘Full Moon’ and its energies.
Remember a ‘Full Moon’ disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and every one of us. So the key to achieving success during a ‘Full Moon’ is to stay calm and embrace its positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a ‘Full Moon’, and our emotions can seem extremely intense. A ‘Full Moons’ energy is very powerful, so it’s important to know where you’re directing it. You can start by staying focused on positive intentions from your heart. Which means being real and authentic with yourself.
We’ve all heard of how the ‘Full Moon’ affects human behavior, causing chaos; as it fills up emergency rooms, but we also see random acts of crime spike dramatically during a Full Lunar cycle. Not only does the Moon actually create the tides in the ocean, science has also proven that the ocean literally ‘swells’ during a ‘Full Moon.’ The human body is made up of around 70% water. If the ‘Full Moon’ can move an entire ocean it certainly can and does have an impact on our human bodies that are mostly made of water. Water is strongly associated with and symbolizes our emotional well-being.
So just as the power of the ‘Full Moon’ can make entire oceans swell and move, the water we hold within ourselves becomes charged up from its energy, and this causes emotional side effects. The energy of a ‘Full Moon’ has a strong influence on us, hence why people act out days prior to its actual being Full…. this usually starts about three days prior and up to three days after it became Full. Just think about how the ‘Full Moons’ energy is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out, it’s a very powerful, potent energy. All of the Moon’s cycles affect us differently, (but they do affect us,) because they’re part of us. The ‘Full Moon’ perhaps having the most dramatic and noticeable impact.
Ask yourself just how much personal power you have? If one can stay focused and use the ‘Full Moons’ energy to send out positive intentions, you can create and manifest energy out here…in this physical reality. It’s really all just about being conscious and aware of what you’re creating. Water molecules have been proven to hold an emotional charge within our bodies. How you feel is how they react, and they DO react according to your energetic intentions. So if you’re happy or sad, positive or negative, the water within you is affected on a molecular level. If we concentrate on this energy and focus on what we truly desire, and then visualize that – even more importantly FEEL it – can you imagine the possibilities! We can literally create what it is we desire out here in this physical world. I find that to be exciting! If you’re more interested in understanding how the water in our bodies affects us, check out this website on Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, “The Water Crystals of Masaru Emoto”
This means if we visualize and then “FEEL” our intentions – as the Moon grows full – and I mean truly “FEEL” what it is we want, we can literally transform our feelings and intentions into reality in this energy. It’s my hope you can make sense of this and use the power of positive thinking and visualization to manifest your Dreams into physical reality; the ‘Full Moon’s’ energy is just a bit of Magic we need to make it happen. Let me know what you do with this info, and if you’re brave enough to test the waters?
The ‘Full Moons’ energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware of these energies, it gives you an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth. Here are some tips to follow during the ‘Full Moon’, that can help bring in more positive energies…and release old energies that just simply don’t work anymore in your life. Here are some simple guidelines to follow during the ‘Full Moon’:
1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!
The ‘Full Moon’ is a time of releasing and one should stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing how you’re feeling down or telling a friend, and wait for at least a few days after the ‘Full Moon’ and then again write down how you’re feeling, see the comparison. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.
2. Think positive thoughts!
During the ‘Full Moon’ each month, you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to sleep, visualizing what you truly desire, or on what’s good or positive in your life while being thankful for your blessings…it can be magical! Remember “the attitude of gratitude.”
For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.
3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.
The ‘Full Moon’ is the right time to do manifestation work around releasing what is no longer working or serving you. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write what you would like to manifest and what energy you’d like to see gone or are done with. You could even make a Vision Board with pictures that represent your goals, it can be the actual goal or the word that represents your dreams and wishes, place them on a cork board, make a collage and hang it up on a wall so you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies that you want to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or Setting Intentions as it’s called, during the ‘Full Moon’ it can give you an energy boost!
4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.
The ‘Full Moon’ pours out so much energy, that meditating during one can create a calm and still energy that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a ‘Full Moon’, so look for spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be a very powerful healing and manifest work.
5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.
Having this powerful energy at your disposal makes a ‘Full Moon’ the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light and energy out… out to everyone, you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world (which we need more than ever), think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need.
Whatever you believe in or faith you might have you can’t deny the way you feel during a ‘Full Moon,’ so at the very least take one small step from your heart and try to work with this energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!
This month’s Full Moon is a special Super Moon, which is when the Moon is closer to the Earth, so the Moon will look brighter, larger, and closer than an average Full Moon, and this will be the largest Super Full Moon of 2019.
This Full Moon is also accompanying a bright Star called Regulus in the constellation Leo the Lion. You can expect the sky to be pretty bright for a few nights.
This Full Moon has a few different ancient names actually. A very long time ago different cultures and people gave the Moons names by month and the changing seasons. During that time they followed the Lunar Month instead of the Solar Year.
February’s Full Moon is often called the Snow Moon and it has been known also as the Hunger Moon, the Storm Moon, and the Chaste Moon.
The Full Moon on the 19th occurs in the detailed sign of Virgo in the first degree, this can bring more awareness around the things that need more order in our lives. Something usually becomes exposed or is illuminated, which helps us get in touch with the things that we may have been neglecting or putting off, especially regarding our work, habits, services, health, and routines. We may receive some strong intuitive signs or messages from the Universe, and our feelings may come from a place of being frustrated or stuck.
During this particular Full Moon is the perfect time to work on manifestation. It also tends to give us the courage to speak up and say goodbye to negative situations and people who have been bringing us down. This Full Moon is a time to reevaluate and finally figure out what’s no longer working or is needed in our lives. It’s a time to release something, or someone perhaps. It’s when we let go and cleanse the space we’re in. This Full Moon being in the sign of Virgo, just magnifies its effects.
The Full Snow Moon will occur on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 is in the sign of Virgo. Although our adrenaline is pumping during this time, the energy will eventually fade, but you in the meanwhile, can get new projects off the ground and once the energy has dropped you can maintain your motivation and not worry so much about initiating something.
The interesting part of this February Full Moon is how it is connecting with the other planets in the Cosmos. And the Full Moon in Virgo is making a rather nice “Trine” connection to Mars in Taurus and is close to electric thought provoking Uranus at the end of the sign of fiery Aries. This makes for a highly charged up Full Moon folks, and since the Full Moon already is an emotional time, we must be careful not to allow this energy to overwhelm us, as we can be more anxious and worried than usual during this time.
Mars recent move into the sign of Taurus is also connecting to this Full Moon. Looking at how the Zodiac Sign of Taurus acts when it’s angry or passionate about something (Mars Traits) helps us fully understand how it will affect us during this Full Moon. Occasionally, we could get angry and easily irritated. Some folks will reach a boiling point about a particular issue that may have been more easily handled before or at least tolerated. So our patience is wearing thin and some of us might need to take decisive action.
There’s a strong urge or desire to break free from anything that is restricting or limiting us, with Mars conjunct Uranus during this Full Moon. Even when it’s not an erratic Full Moon this connection is unpredictable and can be volatile, so watch out for others who get too pumped up and tend to lose their tempers!
Luckily, there are other Planetary connections being made to the Sun and Moon during this time that help keep our impulsive behavior more under control and that lowers the chances of upsetting events!
Often there comes a time when we need to take certain actions and be more proactive, especially in areas of our lives where we have held back or gotten lazy. With the outer-planet Uranus involved, there is a theme of destiny at work during this Full Moon, and it can put us under pressure to make some important changes.
During the Full Moon, you will be able to look at your life and quickly size up what is possible and more manageable, because you are more realistic about your schedule and limitations with it being in the sign of Virgo. There can be a reality check around what you are overdoing in certain areas of your life. But mental Mercury is, fortunately, helping us with insight to work on a more doable plan for the future. Plus our negotiating skills in most situations are on point, and that may give us a little more time. Mercury right now is in the sign of Pisces and with the Full Moon in Virgo negotiations are more possible.
The Full Moon in Virgo can bring more exciting opportunities that help you feel more alive and expressive. Whatever might have been confused or depressed in your life might just seem to come together and make sense during this cycle. It can allow you to have more restored faith in your current path and give you more confidence to attain your longer-term goals for the future.
With all these powerful influences at play it’s a great time to learn how to do Full Moon energy work, and for setting some intentions, as we should be working on letting go of what no longer works for us or is blocking our path to something better during the Full Moon

Venus the planet of love, business, money, and lust changes Zodiac signs today from optimistic, adventurous Sagittarius to realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus will be in this sign from February3rd, 2019 to March 1st, 2019.
Venus moves fast folks around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month.
With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and slowly warm up to others, but we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time.
It’s time to think about who you can count on. Do the people you care and love for follow through on their promises? The planet of LOVE and AFFECTION moves through the sign of Capricorn and draws your attention to the most real aspects of your relationships. No matter what someone says if they can’t commit to you and the relationship they are having with you it usually won’t last. So you will know true love when someone is making you the priority, and if they make some sort of sacrifice for you. Rid your life of those wondering Romeos and Juliets and open your heart to people you can trust.
Venus also is connected to our finances and what we value, from people to material things. Therefore, it’s the perfect time to get serious and make long-term plans in these parts of our lives. It’s a time to get real and take inventory around what’s coming in and out in your business and personal finances.
If you are a Sun-Sign or Rising-Sign in Taurus or Libra, you may feel more focused and serious over the next month. As your heart may want to make more practical and attainable plans for the future. If you’re a Capricorn Sun-Sign or Rising-sign, as long as Venus is in your sign, you can attract more love, abundance, and beauty into your life.
No matter what your Zodiac sign, enjoy this more practical, stabilized energy while it lasts.
The New Moon this month is in the sign of Aquarius, and occurs on February 4th, 2019 which marks the beginning of a New Cycle.
This just might be the luckiest New Moon phase of the year! The Sun, Moon, and Mercury are making lovely connections to lucky Jupiter! Wow, that’s a whole lot of energy. This New Moon’s alignment with mindful Mercury and it’s sextile connection to lucky Jupiter can leave us feeling especially hopeful, and faithful, which inspires more positive thinking and idealism. This influence has us looking to the future with confidence and optimism. So our primary concern should be with the progress we can make and our freedom as well.
This is a time of friendship, brotherhood & sisterhood, group activities, social pursuits, group projects, and for trying anything that has to do with humanitarian efforts or causes, so joining up with a group of like-minded individuals can go quite well. You may just have some wondrous New Beginnings if you get involved with some sort of group. Under this potent Aquarius energy, you have the opportunity to make exciting, progressive changes in your life. For some folks, the circumstances are such that we should be paying extra close attention to these matters. This is our chance to use our innovative ideas to come up with something very workable.
The Moon will be in Aquarius for two and half days, starting Sunday, Feb 3rd (morning time in the US), and we will feel more gracious, and willing to give in certain situations. Other folks will benefit without a doubt as the Moon forms a beautiful connection to Jupiter!
FYI: Also the glorious Sun and King Saturn make a weaker but nice connection during this time, that can “cramp our style,” as this influence has a somewhat heavy effect on us, so we tend to have a more difficult time fully enjoying ourselves without feeling just a little bit guilty that we are neglecting our responsibilities in some way. Try to ignore those feelings and give and receive as much as you can all weekend through Tuesday if you can.
The effects of the New Moon on Feb 4th, 2019 can last up to four weeks after it occurs, so right up to the New Moon on March 6th, 2019. So this is the best time to set up your Intentions and make out those Wish or Manifesting Lists.
Times to start your energy or New Moon ritual work:
Once the Moon shifts into the sign of Aquarius on Sunday, February 3rd early in the morning, we can start our energy work, and we will have until Tuesday, Feb. 5th that evening, when the Moon will slip back into its VOID cycle, before changing signs once again.
Here’s The Times the New Moon Occurs below.
CST February 4 at 3:04 pm
EST February 4 at 4:04 pm
PST February 4 at 1:04 pm
MDT February 4 at 2:04 pm
This New Moon is a great opportunity to break free from bad situations, or old habits or just anything that’s holding you back from living your life to its fullest potential. It’s a day to push your luck and look for new ideas and ways to change things. Take advantage of any opportunities that come your way, as some might show up you didn’t even expect.
“A whole lot of folks will be lucky under this New Moon especially the ones who choose to work with its energies.”
February is the shortest month of the year, and usually, it tends to be a quiet time on the Astrological front. All of the major planets are moving direct now, which means NO RETROGRADES all month long, and many of our projects or endeavors are straightforward and moving full steam ahead, and hopefully, you are enjoying some sort of payoff! However, the planets are going to be changing Zodiac signs quite a bit this month which does shake things up a bit here and there.
On the 3rd, Venus the planet of LOVE shifts into more grounded Capricorn, and our focus shifts to the passion we feel towards meeting our goals, this energy is about how responsible we are when in love. In other words, people will be held accountable for how they act in their relationships, and they better accept the consequences or reality will take a hand and make sure of it! It’s a time to be more mature in our intimate and business relationships, so step it up, folks!
The New Moon will be most energizing in the sign of Aquarius on Feb. 4th. This lunation brings in new beginnings and hopefully a fresh start to our lives. This means we should be focusing on helping heal the world by embodying positive energies for our future, with our hopes and dreams. This influence can push us outside of our comfort zones, but for good reasons as this is a time of being awakened, and we will hopefully see exactly what that looks like through our visions, and when we socialize and brainstorm. This is a time when feelings need to be expressed in our friendships, as we develop a more open mind. This is a great time to push forward with whatever you were releasing around the Total Lunar Eclipse on Jan 21st. This also can help us finish up the little things that need to be sorted out or put out of the way to make room for such big shifts.
On the 10th, mental Mercury the planet that rules over how we think and communicate enters the etheric waters of Pisces. We are led by our spirit and intuition under this influence, and it can be a great time to work with our imagination and to connect too something more spiritual. This is a time to follow what you feel and not so much your logic. On the 18th the Sun also enters this sign of the fish, Pisces, and this just intensifies these energies even more so.
One of the heavy hitting planetary connections this month involves Mars (the warrior of the Zodiac) and Uranus (our higher-self)which are both currently in the sign of Aries (the warrior planet.) These two hook up in the 13th at what’s called the anaretic degree, where the planet of raw energy, Uranus is also at until February 6th, but when it finally moves into the sign of Taurus on March 6th and out of Aries.
This is going to cause some serious activity in February! This normally quiet month, won’t be so quiet due to these meetings. This highly active energy helps us focus on being productive and more positive, otherwise, there can be some major blow-ups as well! It’s all about control during this time. If you know your Astrology well enough than find 29 degrees of Aries in your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” and see where this energy is hitting and what part of your personal life you should be more focused on.
Mars is moving into the lovely sign of Taurus on February 14th (Valentine’s Day!) and Uranus isn’t too far behind as it moves into Taurus as well in March, which I am personally looking forward too. This is going to help calm some things down and we will slow way down, and be more patient and methodical in what we do. Plus a lot of that extra anxiety you might be feeling will simply go away. Mars change into Pisces starts to get us ready for the big shift, as the energies are rally going to make a huge change in February. We can begin to focus on new projects, opportunities, paths, and journeys that will keep us busy for quite some time.
Chiron might not be quite big enough to be considered a planet, but this little asteroid has a huge impact on our lives!On Feb. 18th, Chiron re-enters back into the sign of Aries, (this happened last April, but due to Chiron being Retrograde, it had shifted back into Pisces for awhile.) So from Feb 18th onward Chiron will be in Aries consistently.
This influence is about how healing begins on the inside, so within ourselves first. This helps us work on rebuilding our confidence, including around our body image, and the parts of our personalities that are more sensitive. Both personal and health issues that have been holding us back from moving forward or from thriving come back up to review and hopefully work through. This influence teaches us how to assert ourselves and focus on our own needs in a more healthy manner without feeling guilty! It’s time to be brave and courageous just like the sign of Aries leads by example, and meet our fears and insecurities head on and without so much dwelling or procrastination. This is also an important time to learn how to control our anger and use it for fuel and motivation, so you can take charge of your emotional state and health, both physically and spiritually. Chiron will be in the sign of Aries all the way through 2026. And this is right when the planet Uranus finally moves out of Aries, (this is a good thing), and into more relaxed Taurus in March, hopefully helping calm things down a bit.
The Full Moon occurs on Feb 19th, in the sign of service, Virgo in its first degree. This brings sudden awareness and information to our lives, especially in the areas that need more organization and order. Something can be exposed or illuminated under the Full Moon’s light, which helps us get in better touch with what we might have been neglecting or putting off, especially emotionally. But since this Full Moon is in the sign of Virgo, look for issues to arise around your work, or where you are of service to others, and around your habits, health, and routines.
It’s going to be an interesting month full of interesting changes, but also opportunities if you can keep calm and not allow your temper to flare up. Have a great month folks, and as always if you are looking for some clarity or a guide to get you through life’s challenges, then get with me about having a session, just email me at email@example.com or message me on Facebook over on Rubys Psychic Astrology Readings.
The SUN shifts gears into more future thinking AQUARIUS.
Happy Birthday to all my Aquarius people and welcome to Aquarius Season.
This month-long cycle keeps us hungry for knowledge and experience. We now start looking for new ways to do things, as we search for what feels original, different, and unique! We become increasingly aware of what isn’t working anymore in our lives and strive to find new ways of looking at life as our minds open to new perspectives. With the Sun now in Aquarius, you will feel more even-tempered, artistic, sociable, peaceful in your general attitude to life, humanitarian, warm and loving.
You may just start to feel more like mingling again, and not as heavy or weighed down, as our overall attitude is more peaceful. But we can get rather nerve-wracked and anxious if we start focusing on what we are lacking in our lives. Turn any worrisome energy you might experience into something you can manifest, by setting goals and making plans. Tackle one thing at a time and work on yourself, it’s much easier to think about ourselves when the Sun is in Aquarius because we more detached emotionally, and can put our feelings to the side just long enough to take care of important business.
Astro Alert There’s a whole bunch of planets in the sign of more grounded Capricorn currently, which doesn’t mesh well with free-spirited AQUARIUS. Under the Sun in Aquarius, we can find all the structure and order to be too rigid, cold, and restrictive.
Now that it’s officially AQUARIUS SEASON we as individuals are going to be seeking more freedom and independence. We’re going to work very hard now to free ourselves from any restrictions, limitations, and inhibitions that keep us feeling blocked or constrained, rather than safe and comfortable like we have been over the last month during Capricorn Season.
There’s a lot of movement and excitement usually during Aquarius Season, as amazing things are about to be discovered! We tend to be way more open-minded now and can experience an awareness or knowingness. As Ah-Ha moments occur more often, and those amazing epiphanies, ya know those moments you suddenly realize something or rediscover something you weren’t aware of or had forgotten!
Many of you haven’t been so tapped into your spirit lately, with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the Earthy sign of Capricorn. This shift gives us a chance to stretch our minds, bodies, and spirits. So enjoy it!
Some things you can do during this time try to express yourself more openly and outwardly. Be open to trying new ways of communicating and expressing yourself to flow better with this energy. This is a time where we are often quite eccentric. Maybe try to doing something more investigative and take the time to learn something, involving science, Astrology, Metaphysics, or New Age-ish, as lots of folks tend to dapple in the occult during this time. It’s just a good time to study anything new, different, bizarre, or innovative.
This is time of self-expression, as our thoughts and actions both, drive our ambitions. Conventional or traditional values are changed up during this time, With fresh and exciting horizons ahead we are motivated by Spirit!
There are lots of changes going down this month to discuss. On Tuesday, January 8th, mental Mercury gets into a tense Square connection with heated up Mars! It may feel like people just want to argue or be mad, so they don’t know how to hold back and shut up! Lots of you might feel like getting something off your chest, but I warn you if you do lose your cool it can get heated up in ways you didn’t even imagine and even out of control!
If you were born during any of the times below, arguments are very possible! Avoid important or controversial conversations on this day if you know someone born during these times.
December 23 – 26
March 22 – 26
June 22 – June 26
September 21- 25
This is a very powerful time for transformation on Friday, and this weekend can be a strong time for endings and major transitions. This is also “Eclipse Season”, so those folks who have been waiting to crossover, might be ready to leave now, so say your final goodbyes now if you can. Some of you may feel a little depressed, but this too shall pass. Use this time instead to dig deeper and do some inner work on yourself!
Venus shifted into the sign of Sagittarius, so all you Sagittarius folks can have a rather good three weeks. If you were born between Nov 22nd and Dec 21st, you’ll notice people are sort of drawn to you and are more kind. Sudden good things can happen randomly.
Venus is also in a nice trine with Mars in Aries and this helps all of us, no matter what sign you are, this can help you move forward with your plans and goals. Many of you will see some sort of increase in your life during this time, as money and love are expanding for many of you. Also, lucky Jupiter the planet of expansion is in Sagittarius, it’s home sign, Venus meets up with Jupiter on January 22nd. This is a big deal and it’s a very lucky time for many of us. So hopefully look forward to some good fortune coming your way soon!
If you know your Astrology Birth Chart look for something good to happen in whatever part of your chart, the 16 degrees of Sagittarius falls in. If you’re not sure then order a One Question Reading and get a Mini Reading about this lucky and lovely aspect. Just email or message me, “Where’s my luck this month?” and I will send you an answer back via email after I receive your payment. This energy will be strong and around for several days and maybe even a week or so. To learn where these influences fall in your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” or how this time is best spent for you.
Another good piece of news is that Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all now in their home signs. And all these planets are moving forward and are Not I’m Retrograde! Woo-hoo! In fact, there are no Retrograde planets until March, so it’s time to move forward with plans and goals. This is a lucky time folks, make the most of it and take advantage of these energies and make something happen. Don’t miss this time, it’s an opportunity for us all!
If you forgot to write out your New Years Resolution or just want to add some more energy to the work you’ve already done, there’s another day coming up that is great to start your resolutions, but this is only if you want to release or rid of something, someone, or a situation in your life. For example, if you want to release some sort of bad habit then mark your calendars folks for January 21st! It’s a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse with some serious extra energy, and it can help you with your resolutions if you do some energy release work. And don’t look at this as a time of losing something, see it as a time that you are releasing something instead!
Wondering what happened to the Holidays? Now that Jupiter is in the fire sign of Sagittarius, and all the planets are moving forward, life is moving rather quickly. The good news is you can get an awful lot done this year, as the calendar moves fast. So it’s a good time to be prepared and set yourself up for success.
Write out some resolutions around what you want to release starting now, as the FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE comes together on January 21st or 22nd, (depending on what time zone you live in) in the sign of Leo! This is a going to be a fast-moving month with all the planets mainly in Fire Signs! So get moving and start manifesting!
