Mercury enters Scorpio

Deeper Thoughts
By Ruby

The planet of communication enters the sign of transformation and evolution, Scorpio, where it stays through Halloween. During this cycle, our thoughts and conversations can run very deep and intense.

While Mercury was in the sign of Libra, we were pulled more towards finding balance and making things more fair. Now with Mercury in Scorpio we live by a different set of rules, and there’s just an understanding that life isn’t always fair. Mercury while in Scorpio seeks the truth in all that is hidden, repressed, kept secret, or unknown! This is a time to do some investigative work and get focused and just observe your life, oh the things you’ll learn if you choose to be more silent and pay attention! Life Changing Stuff, folks!

Our motivation is the more deeply a problem is buried the more satisfied we may feel intellectually. Commutation that seems superficial, fake, or false will not work and can be a major turn off! We are drawn instead to more meaningful, deep conversations. Scorpio energy helps all of us feel more sharp and analytical, so our way of thinking can be more one-track minded and obsessive during this time.

October New Moon

By Rubys Readings

The NEW MOON forms on Monday, October 8, 2018, in the sign of Libra.

On Monday night, a New Moon occurs in the sign of the scales, Libra! This is a good time to commit yourself to personal goals that have to do with your relationships or partnerships, both personal and business. This exciting New Moon can be good for new beginnings of course, in old and new relationships both. If you are willing to extend an “olive branch” to someone, and maybe welcome back an estranged family member or friend back into your life, or even give love a second chance, this beautifully complex New Moon can help you! With Venus now in its Retrograde cycle, those we have loved often come back around for a second try, but that doesn’t mean it will necessarily stay together once the Retro cycle is over.

Under this energy, we have a chance to work on our negotiating skills without giving up our own needs or giving in to someone else only just to keep the peace or to make them happy. It’s a good time to work on balancing our relationships and to see our partners as our teammates rather than competition. Libra energy also helps us learn how to bring opposites together, but there’s always a fine line that we must not cross while learning how to make the effort to stay committed in our relationships, or we may end up acting dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage.

Under this potent Libra New Moon energy, we have an opportunity to make some important changes in our lives. Some of the lessons Libra teaches all of us involves learning how to make peace and restore harmony with those around us, and in our own environments. This helps us establish some order and create balance in our world. It is also important to see the value and worth of your partner, but that may not be as easy with Venus the ruler of relationships, (Libra’s ruling planet,) now in Retrograde, you may feel a little more cut off emotionally or reserved, but if you search your heart surely you will feel what is valuable. This New Moon brings in a fresh and creative energy into our lives, and more specifically, into our relationships. Our desire to balance out our personal relationships can feel very strong during this cycle. This can be a good time for negotiations because we are more able to assert ourselves and our needs in ways that don’t offend or upset others.

However, this New Moon forms a tense Square to powerful Pluto, which can add some drama and intensity to our already existing relationship issues. This also can bring up and out completely new problems related to power and control. At one point over the next three days or so you will more than likely have to deal with some sort of resistance from others as our personal dreams and goals might conflict or compete with our goals in our relationships.

Pluto is currently in the sign of Capricorn, which connects us to the element of Earth, so we want something real, solid, and tangible. Pluto often brings out power struggles and can have you feeling pressured during this time. The lesson with Pluto connecting to this New Moon, is to be able to see that it’s not so much about the results as the connections you have with others, and that your relationships are powerful perhaps and intense, but also make sure they bring about more positive feelings to you.

Astro Tip
With Pluto involved, watch and safeguard your health and your relationships both during this time. Colds and feeling ran down are often symptoms from this influence. If you have any medical issues do everything in your power to change your habits and lifestyle to get healthier. During this New Moon, you can put yourself on some sort of diet or plan that will help you improve your health. You can be quite serious and passionate about kicking bad habits, especially when it comes to how you eat! It is believed that the effects of this New Moon on Oct 8 will last until November 7, when another New Moon will occur in the sign of Scorpio.

Luckily, Venus is also tied in to this New Moon and makes a harmonious Trine to Neptune in Pisces (healing energy,) this brings a degree of flexibility to the table, as long as we are compassionate and empathic to our own needs and in our relationships, once we can recognize our own vulnerabilities in someone else’s situation or behavior, we can be much more compassionate and kind. This is a reflection of ourselves, mirror-mirror on the wall kind of stuff! Ya know to be kind to others and they will be kind to you, Karmic ties and what you put out will come back to you good, bad, or indifferent.

Whatever you do during the next few days this is a time to Set Intentions with the New Moon energy, so make sure to start writing out those lists about what you truly want to see happen in your life next, what do you desire the most, and what paths do you want the Universe to put you down now, so you can go after your goals. If you have never done this work, no worries it’s easy just click this link, Setting Intentions with the New Moon, and read all about how you can do some amazing and often life-changing work with the New Moon.

Venus Goes Retrograde

image

October 5 – November 15
By Rubys Readings

Venus goes Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio. 

Every 18 months, Venus the planet of love, relationships, and money appears to go backward. Let’s start off with the good news, Venus transiting in Retrograde can help you take a break from your love life, so you can take a step back and maybe gain a better perspective about how you are really feeling about your relationships, and maybe your financial situation. You can take this time to ask yourself if your romantic world is really making you happy, and if there’s something you need to change.

During Venus in Retrograde your love life may enter a fated time, where giving and receiving love and affection just doesn’t come as naturally and can actually be more difficult than usual. Old friends, lovers, partners (both intimate and business), and family members can come back around and may suddenly reappear, and you might even relive past life experiences to sort out some Karmic Issues. People often don’t realize Venus rules over our money situations as well. It’s traditionally believed that during a Venus Retrograde phase that you shouldn’t invest or buy luxury items.

Venus in Retrograde is a time to go inward and get in touch with your heart, it’s a time of introspection and to maybe reassess your love life and finances. You may become particularly interested in someone or something of value that would bring you pleasure. A soul mate might show up, as destined encounters are very possible during this period. But don’t be fooled, because you can experience feelings that a chance encounter with an old flame is inevitable. But it usually doesn’t last for long, instead they come back around for us to review our old relationship and maybe remember something and do some forgiving and healing. It’s just best to wait until Venus turns back direct and out of Retrograde to make a move forward in a relationship or financial endeavor.

During this particular Venus in Retrograde, if you happen to have the Sun, Moon, or your Rising (Ascendant) Sign in either the sign of Libra or Taurus, this can be a particularly strong cycle for you. So you may want to take some extra special precautions. This can be an important time in your life when you’re just rubbed the wrong way by a lover or friend, or even business partner, and you may feel like reconsidering if you want to be in your current relationship and if you’re happy or not. 

Getting married under this energy is not recommended. So if someone asks you to marry them or vice versa it’s best to wait until after the Retrograde cycle is over. It is not a time for heavy financial or even personal commitments either. It’s just difficult for anyone in a new relationship to gain any kind of commitment or have longevity while Venus is moving backwards. Marriages and business relationships formed now probably won’t last. If you are going to make a commitment in love or around money might I suggest you wait until the Retrograde phase is over in mid-November. This goes for any ceremonies that are a re-commitment of some kind as well.

Sun in Libra

Saturday, Sept. 22 – Oct. 23

“SUN IN LIBRA”

Happy Birthday, Libra! And Happy Libra Season to all.

The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra.

This is our Autumnal Equinox, and we will experience equal hours of daylight as darkness.

Today is something to talk about because not only is the Sun moved into Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury. So our core self and minds are in sync, besides the constant need to for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships and brings in the energy of cooperation and equality.

You will feel sharp and aware of issues of injustices or unfair treatment of others, which may be a direct result of you taking a stand for yourself or others, especially if it’s around those you love. It’s easier to see all sides to most situations, so remember you can’t make everyone happy, because decision making can prove to be difficult. You might start playing the role of peacemaker under this influence, so you can be quite diplomatic when it comes to dealing with problems or business dealings.

We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously. Be careful to not seek out the approval of others too much during this cycle, as it can be difficult to know who’s telling the truth sometimes, follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness and psychic-self is at its strongest. You have an extra boost of intuition now with mental Mercury now in in the sign of Libra, as well, for most of October, so it’s just natural to study other folks and their behaviors and body language, which can tell you an awful lot about a person, go ahead and try it, you will see exactly what I am talking about. 

This transit can especially affect those with Libra Suns signs or Rising signs. Libra’s should feel a great big jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks, and the rest of you may be made more aware of how to balance what is required of you both emotionally and physically to achieve balance.

While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next 28 days or so. Our relationships will also become of great interest and focus from September 22nd through October 23rd.

FYI we can struggle with how to handle our relationships with Venus the planet of love in the mysterious sign of Scorpio during this time, and with planet Venus going into its Retrograde cycle soon. Relationships are under a microscope and are about to get a big dose of reality through the end of November!

Mars in Aquarius

image

 

September 10 – November 15

For All Zodiac Signs:

Today Sept. 10 Mars enters the sign of Aquarius where it will remain through November 15th.

Mars oh Mars, that little hot “Red Planet” has been stirring up our aggressions and passions for a while now, but finally, it is out of its Retrograde cycle and is ready to rumble once again. Mars is moving forward now and has entered the fiery revolutionary air sign, Aquarius. So if you’ve been feeling depleted of determination or motivation, expect your energy to return soon. Mars, named after the Roman God of War, rules over motivation, energy, and passion. It inspires supercharged and explosive actions, which can lead to either great accomplishments or utter destruction.

Our freedom is of the utmost importance under Mars in Aquarius, especially involving our friendships and partnerships. Even if we are in something committed we tend to want to do “our own thing”, no matter what, be it personal or in business. During this cycle, we can experience amazingly dynamic energy levels, but it can feel erratic at times! We are chasing down our goals now “full throttle” as this energy pushes us to do so, so we may achieve our goals through hit and miss actions. We can feel much more assertive and be more original, intelligent, unorthodox, independent, resourceful, inspired, and organized in some ways.

Aquarius is a fixed air sign, and its energies have us feeling more determined, stubborn, thoughtful, social, and full of ideas. This energy has us feeling more caring towards the group or community as a whole, so if you feel more motivated by teamwork and a shared cause that is completely normal under this influcence. The progressive qualities of Aquarius also inspire the wellbeing of society as a whole, especially with those who are being treated unfairly. Your inner revolutionary is about to wake up folks, and you may get excitied about introducing new ideas to others, as well as challenging some folks past assumptions about other people.

Occasionally, our moods may shift and change, and we can get quite stubborn and eccentric, and a bit air-headed or zany! If we get frustrated or angered under Mars in Aquarius we tend to be more to ourselves, as we do not like confrontation unless we slip and lose control, than Watch Out, we can be very direct and matter of fact, shoving reality in other folks faces! But we tend to be more verbal about it than physical. Also, if we are not happy with someone we can be quite passive-aggressive at times, and take some nasty shots.

Much of the energy we feel under this influence will go into being more socially active, especially if something is considered to be humanitarian, so joining forces with like-minded folks who are with a special cause or group is very satisfying to join up with as we don’t mind taking on the establishment if necessary. This influence does help us to think of the team again and be more cooperative and less concerned with personal power for now. We can be quite attracted to what is considered different, unconventional, and offbeat, and we tend to approach problems from a more intellectual detached perspective.

Sex takes on a whole new meaning while Mars is in Aquarius. Mars plays multiple roles. He’s associated with the body, physical vitality, lust, conquest, and how you get what you want, but especially since Mars rules over sexual activity we will experiment and play the field before committing ourselves to one partner during this time, it’s a time for independence in love and relationships usually, and lovemaking is more spontaneous, as we have a need for constant change.

With this Mars energy being in the most eccentric, non-conformist sign of the Zodiac, you may feel more like asserting your individuality and embrace your weird quirks. You get an opportunity to express yourself in rare form without fear of judgment from others.

Anything that might have seemed stuck or impossible while Mars was in Retrograde is going to move forward once again now, especially concerning our love lives and whatever makes us feel truly passionate. Combined with the energies of Venus now in the sign of Scorpio, it’s a time where those around you who don’t embrace every part of you get cut out! It’s an important time where you’re inspired to build a strong network and support system full of loyal friendships with good intentions. So get to mingling and build your tribe while Mars is in Aquarius and help some folks along the way.

Venus Enters Libra

 

VENUS ENTERS LIBRA
By Rubys Readings

Venus is in Libra from August 6-September 9.

The Goddess of Love is shifting gears as it changes signs around the Zodiac Wheel every 5 weeks, and this time it’s landing in the sign it rules, the sign of charm and relationships, Libra! However, this energy can also be rather aggressive (Libra is also believed to be Co-Ruled by Uranus.) In love and money endeavors we will go after what we want during this cycle. But we generally speaking are ready to keep things peaceful and harmonious with our lovers and business partners and just in our life.

You may feel airy and somewhat detached while Venus is in Libra with friends and in life in general, but you can become obsessive about keeping your relationships good, especially your intimate ones and in your business partnerships. We can be quite accommodating with other people period, and more than willing to negotiate and compromise. Which is great for making deals and just getting along better.

Because we are especially idealistic about love under Venus in Libra, we don’t tend to see the issues in our relationships, as we can just ignore them instead and pretend everything is perfectly normal, therefore, we may not see how dependent, inconsistent, or superficial we are acting with our partners. We do not like unkind or shadowy behavior during this time, and it can totally turn us off because we are meant to balance the light and dark energies that are around us. We prefer for things to be done a certain way, and to avoid anything unpleasant we tend to ignore or look over important deeper issues that are playing out in our relationships, as this can be a strong time for denial.

It’s important not to ignore our partners or we can suffer in silence, secretly feeling resentful that nothing is getting addressed or changed. Speak up even if it is uncomfortable, that is breakthrough! Your reluctance will only trap you and then you can end up privately suffering while feeling you are the martyr for doing so. Resentments can build and later come between you and your lover or remember also business partners, once Venus shifts out of Libra in October and into more deeper thinking Scorpio.

This is a time when we appreciate anything that is artistic and beautiful. We can seriously spend some mola if we aren’t careful under these energies, so watch your wallet. We want to change our environment and make it more pleasant and beautiful to look at, especially in our home, as it is our sanctuary under this influence more so than usual, which makes it a great time for redecorating or making home improvements. But don’t forget the Retrogrades planets are at play right now, so we should wait until late August to make any major changes or even early September.

Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Astro Alert
Mercury in Leo
Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury enters the sign of proud and expressive Leo today! This transit will be in this sign until September 5th, which is longer than usual due to Mercury going Retrograde, from July 25 through August 18, which is usually a challenging time. But this blog is about Mercury’s time in the sign of Leo, which affects all of us!

With Mercury in the sign of Leo our thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect, and can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us or is not listening to what we are saying. One thing we should be careful of especially once the Sun Enters Leo around July 22nd is just how aggressive, pushy, and over bearing we can get. There will be a whole lot of Leo energy swirling around and this means some folks won’t know how to handle this fiery energy, so be mindful and if you feel like your going to Roar take a break and get space!

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent the goal, the better. This cycle can help you organize your thoughts to concentrate for long periods of time, which can help you meet your goals. Our minds our full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance, and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Our minds may just naturally go to the positive, so we can be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, even though on occasion we can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and to 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 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 then 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 over sharing 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 who 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 level. 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 will 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.

Mars In Retrograde – “A Slow Down”

Rubys Astro Alert
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius
“A Slow Down”
Well here we are folks, yet another planet is going into Retrograde! This time it’s Mars. Unlike when Mercury goes Retrograde, and the world’s electronics tend to go wonky, we will need to pay extra attention to our “actions” because Mars rules over our passions, drive, motivation, and physical movement!
With Mars in Retrograde moving in any direction can be difficult. This is a time when we seem to struggle with getting tasks done or we leave things incomplete. Instead of moving around physically, we tend to travel more mentally. It’s a good time to redo, renovate, and repair things instead of pushing to move forward and taking on new projects!
~Mars will be in its Retrograde cycle from June 26th through August 27th!
The planet Mars moves fast so it only goes Retrograde every two years! It’s probably a good idea to think first before starting anything and when taking certain actions, because this cycle tends to lower our energy levels and can cause frustrations as obstacles come up around whatever we make an effort to get done. Most Astrologers agree that during Mars Retrograde we should be extra cautious and if at all possible avoid activities that are considered to be risky or demanding. Lots of folks end up in minor accidents or fail to judge a situation correctly during this time.
Even during this Planetary cycle, life goes on!
For 11 weeks while Mars is Retrograde, we will have to make important decisions even though it’s not the best time. So for example, if you’re unemployed, you’re going to want to accept a new job offer. During Mars Retro you probably will feel the same lack of energy or vitality in any part of your life your take on. So for this reason alone, it’s not the best time to start anything brand new, whether it’s a job, relationship, (sexual or otherwise) or even an argument. If you’ve already started something before this cycle began, it is time to slow down, cool yourself off, and reassess what you want and desire for now before taking any further action.
It’s also not a great time to enter a sexual relationship, committed or not. But most of us don’t want to be celibate, so you probably won’t be. But if you’re planning any important events make sure to pick a time when the planetary influences are working to your advantage, and for some, the Retrogrades are a better time, but let me point out that it’s rare!! But if you pay attention to the planets or have an Astrologer on hand you’ll learn how different planetary cycles affect you.
The bottom line is while Mars is Retrograde its energy is lacking, and this is the planet of Physical Energy, so this is why starting any “new” sexual relationships are seen as being an issue. It’s doubtful once this cycle is over your desire for someone new will continue, or they might feel differently and you can end up breaking off entirely or worse being “ghosted” by your new lover.
However, it’s actually a good time to figure out what you do want around the parts of our lives that Mars rules over such as what makes you feel passionate, driven, sexual, or angry! Even if you have to wait until after this cycle is over to go after it! This is a highly intense energy, which means it’s a good time to wait things out because most anything you start during this cycle will be short-lived. The Universe might grab your attention and lead you towards someone, but this doesn’t mean you should act on it immediately! Take a step back from starting anything brand-new or making any permanent plans until the end of August when Mars is back on track heading in the right direction once again.
This change in energy isn’t to reach a final destination point, it’s not something that lasts, so we shouldn’t change course or stray too far from our normal routines. This includes starting new jobs or relationships! Even though at first it may seem amazing, later on once Mars is back to normal things can happen. It’s important not to jump or to be impulsive just to be with someone new or start up something completely different. We should take into consideration all the planets that are currently in their Retrograde cycles and how this affects us and our lives.
Timing is important even if you work very hard and feel like you’re prepared to go after what you want to accomplish, but if your timing is off you may not get things done or succeed. So for most of us, it’s best to wait until after Mars goes direct on August 27, and start new things at that time.
It just might be a time that when we must work on adjusting our expectations and calmly moving through our frustrations that get in the way of what it is we really want to accomplish. Therefore, if you have activities you want to start, take a step back and re-consider them first. Take this time to pause and reflect on your life and what your next moves will be, then once Mars is back direct you’ll be ready to go!

Full Moon Guide

Full Moon Guide

by Ruby

“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, where you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies of 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 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 within your heart and try to work with its energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!

May 2018 Monthly Horoscope
by Ruby

April was a seriously intense month on the Astrological front and this was reflected in our everyday lives. The planetary shifts we have experienced have been transformational, but there is more to come now as we begin 1, and hopefully, these energies will be more on the calmer side.

The powerful Full Moon in Scorpio is slowly breaking apart now but was one of the most intense Full Moon’s of 2018. And with so many planets going in and out of Retrograde (backward) like Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto we are feeling it! The odd part is we are feeling this energy more internally, due to the planets that are Retrograde, and many of you aren’t choosing to express how you’re feeling. Do what you can to express your emotions during this highly emotionally charged time.

The first week of May might seem almost quiet once the Full Moon energy breaks apart, but the New Moon in Taurus on May 15th can be a catalyst that brings in major changes in our personal relationship with our physical reality. The weeks ahead will likely be some of the most important moments of 2018.

The New Moon comes together on May 15th, 2018! Just hours after the Sun and Moon connect, the New Moon occurs. And on the same day, Uranus the planet of change, chaos, and liberation also changes signs for the first time since 1942, into the sign of Taurus, this starts on May 15th and goes until November 6th!

Uranus is the planet of high vibrational energy and revolution, so as you can imagine having Uranus so active on the day of the New Moon is a pretty big deal. Note: this will affect all the signs, and not just Aries and Taurus!

Many of you are already experiencing the effects of Uranus’s shift into Taurus and may not even realize it. The first of the Earth Signs, Taurus represents our basic survival needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and money. Since Uranus has been in the Sign of Aries for so long now, it helped to create that spark as it’s fire breathed new life into all sorts of situations and projects. But the sign of Taurus helps to sustain life, so themes around manifesting, building, and farming and anything earthy will be our primary focus now. Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus also favors anything beautiful, pleasurable, and sensual. We are not just here to exist or be of service under Uranus in Taurus like we have been doing all these years with Uranus in Aries. Under the sign symbolized by the Bull, Taurus, we are here to live in Earth’s beauty and abundance of nature and to give and receive.

The Sign of Taurus is very much associated with the planet Earth, and since our human existence is literally hurting our home planet, we will see this reflected back to us so we can heal. Therefore, Uranus’s entry into Taurus can be dramatic, mostly because this happens just a few hours after the New Moon comes together.

So other planetary connections will be triggered, and one of those connections can create some serious volatile energy right around the time when the New Moon makes a tense Square to aggressive Mars in Capricorn, while Uranus is the very last degree of Aries, and this is right before it’s shift into Taurus, and that is a very strong placement and time. So make sure to be careful about how you react to folks from May 13th through 17th, because sometimes it’s just not worth a reaction at all.

Uranus stays in the sign of Taurus until November 6, 2018, which gives us some time to get things settled back down, and work on grounding!

Then Uranus actually goes Retrograde and throws itself back in the sign of fiery Aries on November 7th through March 6th, 2019, so we already know how to handle Uranus in Aries, but in Retrograde it’s a whole new story. The urge to start fresh and break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, and to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries. I will explain that more as we get closer to that time.

Uranus finally will re-enter Taurus on March 7th, 2019, for a seven-year journey that won’t end until April 26, 2026. Whatever events or changes that are caused by Uranus in Taurus were probably already started a long time ago.

On May 16th, Mars enters emotionally detached Aquarius, through August 12, this can be a bit unforgiving and aggressive energy. It’s also a dynamic yet erratic energy, we can try to achieve our goals but in a very impulsive manner, and our anger levels can be a bit impersonal. However, we are less concerned with personal power and are more team-players, and cooperative during this time. We are highly attracted to unconventional methods and tend to approach problems more with our minds, as we feel more detached from our emotions.

The Sun drifts into Gemini’s quick-witted and alert presence for a month starting on May 20, making you intensely curious to learn new things. Expand upon the knowledge base you tapped into earlier in the month or learn something totally new. You can be quite the quick study of this energy. Everyone is going to feel this energy, so life might move extremely fast, take a lot of notes during this time and learn to take breaks.

A beautiful Jupiter-Neptune Trine comes exact on the 25th of May, this is the major planetary influence this month and lasts from May 10 to June 12. This encourages hope, generosity, and a sense of community spirit. You may start seeking out a spiritual quest to find the truth during this time. There are going to be many destined encounters with teachers and light-workers of all kinds, like Guru’s, Priests, Psychic’s, and Healers. Someone might even come to you for spiritual guidance. Enlightenment comes through dreams, visions, meditation, and deep spiritual pursuits. It will be more difficult to ignore the sick, poor, and needy during this time, as we are reminded that we are here to take care of each other! As your morals or standards vibrate higher, you will want to find ways to do selfless acts to helps those that need you. Animal and environmental charities will be on our radar even more so than usual. There will be more interest in human rights and refugees, and other innocent victims of war and greed, as social justice will be more important.

Some folks may feel a strong urge to get creative and find an outlet for their enthusiasm through music, dance, art, or theater. Following our dreams for success without having to sacrifice our ego or material possessions is part of this influence, and being wealthy or famous might not be what makes you truly feel happy and content. Romance will be strong and love will be in the air during this time, as others can find you extremely attractive!

On May 29th the Full Moon comes together in the sign of Sagittarius, this energy is all about the adventure or journey! It opens up the greater truths and everything we need to explore our personal freedom. The Sun in Gemini will be opposing the Moon in Sagittarius so our minds will be lit up, as the fiery Sagittarius Moon illuminates our souls wisdom, and helps bring forward information we know on a deep cellular and soul level, it’s the info we carry in our DNA we are talking about here, including past life memories, it is the information we carry deep in our hearts and in our bodies. This very special lunation inspires us to seek a higher perspective on our life’s path, which opens doors to new possibilities and helps us create our future!

Just a little side note:

A special point in the Cosmos is going to be activated on the day the New Moon comes together, this is all about feminine wisdom and power! If you thought the New Women’s movement had peaked with #metoo or #timesup, think again! May is a good time to think about your place in this world as a woman or if you are a man, around the woman you love and support, and your feminine side. Ask yourself where you want to be! If you’re not feeling inspired by life, then now is the time to do something about that and perhaps join a cause that supports your beliefs of course.
