Venus Enters Aquarius – Love Is Strange!

VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS
Love is Strange!
from March 1, 2019 – March 26, 2019

With the planet of LOVE & VALUES shifting into intellectual AQUARIUS, we have a more high-minded approach to matters of the heart, because we are more emotionally detached in our relationships.

If single you may desire someone to love that shares your same values. Still following our hearts leads us to seek out not only a partner but a true friend. If your already committed than you will be less interested in what mundane tasks you share, but you can feel more like discovering new, different, or unique ways of relating to your partner.

We are drawn to the unconventional, as we seek out freedom and independence in our intimate relationships and close personal friendships. We also might need some space in social situations. Even though we aren’t as attached this is a good time to meet new people. Get out there and participate in life and be social, perhaps attend events with folks who share common interests and goals.

Under this Aquarius influence, we can be extremely faithful to our partners and friends but it has to be on our own terms! This can be a wonderful time to strengthen the bonds of an ongoing relationship or partnership. But not a great time for romance, we aren’t looking for mushy lovey-dovey kind of connections. Remember we relate better in our relationships through our minds, so intellectually. If you want to grow closer to someone single or committed, work on building a more solid friendship with them during this time. Being true friends also means we allow our partners the space to freely express themselves, and also prefer to treat others fairly.

This is a time when people tend to get experimental in their relationships, or even when just playing the dating field. Since the SUN just shifted into Pisces we can enjoy some seriously sexy fun! (right there Mr. Gray! Uh huh!)

And since VENUS rules how we love and support one another, you may feel like doing some kind of charity or humanitarian work. We need the people who will fight and advocate for those who cannot do it for themselves. It’s a great time to help others especially in groups of different kinds. Join programs and causes you feel passionate about, and hopefully you’ll make a difference in someone’s life in one way or another.

Chiron In Aries – A New Way to Heal!

image

For All Zodiac Signs 

From Feb 18, 2019 – Dec 28, 2027

Chiron often called the “wounded healer” is associated with wounds that cannot completely be healed. And in life we go through many experiences we can’t entirely fix or dismiss. Once something has been done, you cannot run away from it, you can only face it and deal with it, and you can’t undo or change the past. What’s done is done, and sometimes wounds leave scars. These scars become part of us, but we can’t let them dictate what we do or feel in the future.

In Astrology, Chiron’s purpose is to help us heal with the pain we’ve endured. But our healing is a very personal thing, and our emotional wounds become a story of past trauma and pain that helps identify who we are. Chiron is also known as a teacher, mentor, a guide in Astrological terms, and its lessons help us learn how to transcend our personal pain into the collective experience. Then it is no longer just our own pain but all of humanity’s. It’s not necessarily just about the struggles we have with our self-worth, it’s the compassion we feel for all those who suffer, due to a lack of self-worth. Chiron teaches us how to get through the pain, so that all of humanity can be freed from these wounds.

The Old Way

Chiron’s run through the sign of Pisces over the last several years has been about self-discovery, and learning how to endure through times of struggle when solutions weren’t readily available. We are now being challenged to transform and find healing through others acceptance of our past experiences with Chiron in Aries, feeling validated for our feelings
may have seemed impossible to deal with before, but also to have some kind of faith that a path through the pain and darkness can still lead us to light and healing.

The New Path to Healing

Now that Chiron is in the sign of Aries its handing out lessons that are about taking new steps to deal more directly with any struggles we have had to endure. Even though we may not know what the solution is about, we tend to act fast. We are attending a new school, learning how there are plenty of other ways to change just how we respond to such pains and trauma. For starters, learning how to change the way we express ourselves about our painful experiences, and what priority we give them as well, when you think of our life as a whole.

While Chiron journeys through the sign of Aries, our focus is on how we have the ability now to take action, and stand up for ourselves with coruage and bravery! Chiron in warrior sign Aries, often brings back the past when we were scarred in some way by abuse, aggression, violence, and even war. This influence has us reconnect to our suppressed frustrations or anger, and the part of us that’s felt defeated! It’s about our power struggles in relationships, but also our physical wounds, our short-comings and flaws, and when we felt stuck or like we lost something. It’s a time to be validated for how we have felt when wounded.

With Chiron in Aries our emotional wounds are brought back up and out from the Karma we have caused ourselves, and from the times we didn’t choose to listen to our inner voice, and did nothing differently or did nothing at all! It is about lack of action. Now is the time you can face these issues and these feelings head on and change the game. Being a victim under anything to do with Aries energy is a big no no, and we will fight for what we consider to be right, and find ways to deal with our problems head on. Or we will leave our pain completely alone to move forward, which could be a problem for some folks while Chiron is in Aries. Wounds that are not dealt with have a tendency to haunt us. Instead, be the warrior and fight, don’t give up or give in to your fear of what happens when you feel exposed or vulnerable. With Chiron in Aries we must work at being more strategic and deal with our wounds, or they will only come back up later to be dealt with once again.

Setting Intentions with the New Moon!


Setting Intentions under the New Moon in Aquarius for February 2019!

The New Moon will be quite 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 can push us out side of our comfort zones. This is a time of being awakened and we will 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 and partnerships, as we develop a more open mind. This is also a great time to push forward with whatever we were releasing around the Total Lunar Eclipse on Jan 21st. And this influence can help us finish up the little things that need to be sorted out, and put out of the way to make room for such the big cosmic shifts that are changing things so rapidly now.

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for New Beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your desires. Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher-self, higher power, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask for the New Moon to open up the paths towards your deepest desires, or ask to be led to your manifestations.

Some of you might be asking, how does one set Intentions under the New Moon?

Well first you should set the mood, create the energy. Light some candles and burn some incense or sage, then perhaps play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes and questions on a piece of paper or in a journal. Think about what would you like to manifest, create, and what energy your trying to bring into your life. If you don’t ask you will never know the answers.

As your doing a ritual or Setting your Intentions , here’s some helpful questions you can think about.

What are you choosing to have in your life?

What changes would you like to see in your life?

What are you or should you be letting go of?

How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now,?

What do you want to create around your long-term goals and in your future?

The next step is to visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths, and imagine entering into your heart (the space you love from.) Now see yourself in the desire or dream your creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that amazing Soul-Mate, getting that job you’ve always wanted, or driving that new car. You can’t just THINK IT you have to make sure and FEEL IT, as if you are already really experiencing what your visualizing out in this physical world.

Allow the Universe to show you what paths to follow over the next month, and allow the New Moon show you the paths you are supposed to be going down so you can live a fuller more happy life, and obtain the goals and dreams you already have.

New Moon Timing

The New Moon occurs at the following times below: but we can start our energy Intentions work Sunday Morning on Feb 3rd, when the Moon shifts into Aquarius, and IS NOT in the Void anymore.

CST February 4 at 3:04 pm

EST February 4 at 4:04 pm

PST February 4 at 1:04 pm

Have a Happy, Lucky, and Abundant New Moon!

A Super Moon, Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse!


By Rubys Readings 

image

The Cosmos illuminates the night sky on Jan. 21, as the beautiful Super Moon, Lunar Eclipse makes its appearance in a very powerful way!

The year 2019 started off with a New Moon, Solar Eclipse on Jan. 5, so we are now more than ready for the second part of the Eclipse phase to come together. Look for special signs and symbols from the Cosmos as to what your Eclipse messages may be. Something in your life is probably ending so you can create something new to come into your life. Eclipses bring with them very powerful cosmic energy to planet Earth and often trigger unexpected changes and surprises, so they bring important messages with them.

The Full Moon will be very close to the Earth this month, so this means the energies will feel quite intense compared to a normal Full Moon. This Super Full Moon as it’s called is also an Eclipse so you can feel this sucker in a big and very powerful way.

This Lunar Eclipse is at 0 degrees in the sign of Leo, and is the first Full Moon of the New Year! There will be two more Eclipses in July, back to back, so something profound is developing. 

The Moon’s Karmic Nodes are points that are also linked to this Eclipse and are already known for bringing in more Karmic situations, so the truth is coming out, secrets are being revealed as information comes to light. So it’s a time of decisions if you are ready or not!

These kinds of Astrological connections haven’t come together like this for over 700 years! Even though we have Eclipses every year, it’s just the way they are connecting to other planets that are so rare. 

We are all being affected by this energy be it in small or big ways, but something is happening in your “Astrological Birth Chart” regardless how it’s affecting your life, which started during the first Eclipse at the beginning of January. Now there is more to come and more information to be revealed as the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse comes together. As we get closer to this energy peaking you may just gain some sort of preview as to just what your personal transformation may be about. 

To learn more about this energy and how it affects you why not get an “Eclipse Report” by Ruby, these energies are very interesting and can have long-lasting effects, so email or message me and ask, “How are the Eclipses personally affecting me?” and I will get a detailed report to you via email. (All professional Astrology Reports do have a few, so get with me for more info.)

Eclipse energy is often far-reaching, and can affect us for weeks, months, and even years after it occurs. This Eclipse gives us a chance to connect to something you might feel passionately about. The energy is potent and heightened and some folks will feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster. But just as new doors swing wide open with the Jan Eclipses, this next one on Jan 21 also can close some old doors as well. Jobs and relationships, for example, are often lost or quit, and new ones started during this time. Many of you will let go of something that has been holding you back. 

There is something that’s part of our destiny that we are supposed to be doing and the Universe wants us to experience it, therefore, they will push us into some sort of new energy. So look for new people and situations to randomly come into your life during this Eclipse Season, they are coming in to help guide and protect you, so you can get on a better path and experience something new and improved that aligns with your destiny. The Universe is offering little subtle clues now as to what the Eclipse energy is bringing in for you. Here’s a hint, this all has to do with the old energies, behaviors, and ways of doing things is no longer working for us, and how the new energies are being laid out in front of us to live by and follow, this can help us thrive and be happier.

Think back to what was happening in your life last summer? What was the theme or situation back in July and August? This is a glimpse as to what energy the 2019 Eclipse is bringing in for you, the story is about to end so a new one can be written.

This is an amazing time to MANIFEST something, so get out a notebook and write down your INTENTIONS, and then FEEL them, based on what you would like to see happen next in your life and put emphasis on what you would like to let go of, what is no longer working for you. This higher energy is perfect to tap into and make things just happen. But also the very next day on the 22nd, there is an interesting connection between lucky Jupiter and beautiful Venus, this conjunction as it’s called is also Trining Mars, again good stuff! So bottom line this energy is at an unbelievably high point and it can help us create something positive in our lives. 

Jan 22nd is a Lucky Day folks!
So do something proactive, and be out and among other people, so the Universe can hopefully cross your path and bring something good to you. Don’t allow this day to pass you by without doing something! Many Astrologers are calling this the “great shift” just because of its energy alone, but also there is a major conjunction or connection between Saturn and powerful Pluto underway, and this energy is slowly building up now and will transform the world as we know it, as well as our own lives! The Jan 5th Solar Eclipse kicked this energy up into high gear and will continue to lead us to it peaks through Jan.12, 2020

Good luck and have a safe and happy Full Moon.

Venus in Sagittarius

Astro Alert
by Rubys Readings
For All Zodiac Signs

image

Venus enters Sagittarius on Jan 6th, 2019 and will remain there through Feb 3rd, 2019.

Venus rules over what we value, how we love, and how we deal with our money. Under joyous Sagittarius, we feel (no matter what your Zodiac sign,) like enjoying ourselves, as we have much more courage to play and explore!

Under this transit people tend to be more romantic, adventurous, but also straightforward and blunt when it comes to love and financial situations. We are now leaving behind all the complex soul-searching feelings when Venus was in the sign of Scorpio, and can embrace being more direct about how we feel, which often brings clarity.

We also find ourselves feeling much more appreciative of the opportunities that show up, no matter how big or small. Being under this over the top energy we tend to share much more of ourselves with others, and our mentality leans more towards sharing and growing as a person.

Venus can be quite lucky in Sagittarius, as this influence allows doors to open in the areas of love, relationships, and around finances. This is not the best time to actually be careful with your money or finances necessarily, (even under so many planets in more careful and structured Capricorn, who wants us to hang on to what we have and to stick to what is already working.) But it’s also a very strong time for enthusiasm and spirit, so some spontaneity can bring in some pretty amazing things, follow your instincts.

Hearts open wider and possibilities for luck with money is strong. However, we can see what comes in, go out just as quickly if we aren’t careful with how much we decide to spend or how much love we give out without getting anything back. It’s an important time to show gratitude for what you already do have. Take nothing you get for granted, as the small things seem to just show up and can leave just as fast, enjoy your life.

Over the next month, enjoy the love and gifts from the Cosmos without any expectations of what you can get back, that’s a big no-no under Sagittarius energy. While Venus is in this sign, she is excited to share love and good feeling vibes to the most part, but can be done with it all in a heartbeat. Because this energy makes us feel more distracted by what is fun in the moment, and we can more easily dismiss the details and anything long-term.

This is NOT a time to get attached folks, or to create rules in your relationships, or put restrictions on lover, friends, or partners, or just anyone really. Don’t use people just to get what you want because you think it might be more of something valuable down the road, Karma will come back on you during this time. This is a time to see what your options are and what’s readily available to you first, and be more free spirited and just enjoy it all.

If you are currently in a relationship this placement can help you, if you learn how to play hard to get and be more of a tease, I know you don’t like to play games, but this is some seriously game playing energy, so keep it light and fluffy folks! Leave some mystery in your relationship or with your partner to figure out and enjoy, but don’t leave them guessing for too long, it’s really just about about living in the moment. And remember, if you set someone free and they come back, that doesn’t always mean it was meant to be, instead watch other people’s actions during Venus in Sagittarius, it will speak way more to you than words and show you where their heart is at.

Venus in Sagittarius can also have us desire way more than what we are getting or receiving, so we may be more attracted to what’s all shiny and new and still feel unsatisfied. Remember it’s usually the thought that counts, but getting what’s fair is a big deal under this influence. There’s more pleasure in seeking truth and higher meaning, as we’re more open, sincere, and optimistic with others during this time. We’re interested in knowing the deeper meaning behind the gifts we do receive, as this energy doesn’t help us to trust others very well, unfortunately.

Jumping to conclusions can be an issue, as any assumptions you make can just be problematic later. Therefore, it’s important to listen to other people. There is so much to learn on this exciting journey!

So Love today like there’s no tomorrow!

Sun Enters Sagittarius!

By Rubys Readings

The Sun entered the sign of Sagittarius on November 22nd, and this affects all of us, so all Zodiac Signs!

Our focus shifts and there’s a stronger desire to reach out and connect and with something larger than ourselves. With the Sun in this fiery mutable sign, we can take steps now to increase our understanding and awareness of the world around us for the next month. Our courage is stronger than usual and we want to go beyond our normal boundaries and expand our horizons, as we dive into new ways of thinking!

With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need to make intimate connections with others, to being more focused on having more of an adventure, even if its just one in our minds, but it must have some kind of meaning. We want to connect to something larger than what we have during this influence.

A lot of you will feel more confident during this time, which helps us feel more optimistic and motivated. 

While the Sun was in Scorpio over the last month so from October through November, we were so focused on all the damn details that it became overwhelming for some folks, but that was also due to mental Mercury being in Scorpio nearly the whole time as well.

Now both Mercury and the Sun are in the sign of Sagittarius which does help us go beyond our normal ways of thinking and focus on the bigger picture. But we tend to overdo things including setting way too high expectations! We have a stronger desire to express ourselves and can naturally just talk out loud about what we’re thinking and feeling! Think before you speak if, at all possible, there’s a lot of misunderstandings in the air right now due to mental Mercury in Sagittarius being Retrograde.

You do, however, have an opportunity to nurture your faith, hope, and visions for the future under these influences, so through Dec 23rd. Take advantage of it, and be advised, watch your mouth, think before you speak, and if you get overly frustrated then take a time out and don’t express it out loud right away, or at least not until you have thought things through, or you can ruin relationships and upset people without even trying. So take it easy and enjoy this time and go on an adventure somewhere and let loose a little when you can. Take this higher vibrational energy and believe in all that is possible, because you just might get something you really want or need.

Sun Enters Scorpio – Rebirth!

Rubys Astro Readings
“Sun in Scorpio”
Oct 23rd – Nov 22nd

For All Zodiac Signs:

The Sun is shifting into transformational, mysterious Scorpio and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. This transit runs through November 21st. The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest, (symbolically speaking) most mysterious, and psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul deeply while under the light of the Sun.

Scorpio energy for each and every one of us is about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for us at this time, only the real deal will do! Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, to uncover what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen, or even unknown. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different. Anything that’s just plain or average may not be enough during this time.

Over the last month during Libra season we worked towards being fair and equal. But while under all this Scorpio energy we accept the fact that “life isn’t fair” and understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve the soul we must transform ourselves  which means we must end something to begin anew. The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also The Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” which can represent this brave sign, the Phoenix story is about how it flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust, only to resurrect itself and come back to life to start over again! So just like this story, all of this Scorpio energy teaches us that we have to sometimes fall apart, let something end or die off in order to resurrect ourselves or our lives to tap into some kind of new energy!

Scorpio energy is sexy, mysterious, and provocative, so there is going to may be something interesting that sparks up in our relationships. We often look for a love that is committed and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we are feeling, but we can still be strong-willed and intense, as this is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its transit! This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on where it is going through in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart! Which I can tell you all about in a personal Astrology reading with me, but in the end it can help heal you!

The more shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. And this energy also can cause some folks to become obsessive, going on and on about issue or problem, over and over again, and even if you get nowhere you might find it hard to stop once you have started on whatever you are focused on. Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is still part of the Zodiac Wheel, and we all have a little Scorpio in each of us.

Astro Tip
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio where they will stay throughout Scorpio Season. This means our soul, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking things down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way. This can be an amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as it originated from the Day of the Dead. But this also signifies a time of rebirth, and you can rise again.

During this time of breakdown we might face some real challenges, also with larger than life Jupiter currently in Scorpio. There are so many planets either in Scorpio or moving through it, that we are already starting to see its influence as it’s a bit of a darker time, where lots of folks are getting sick and quite a few are choosing to leave this earthly plane and crossover. This just might be the theme for the next 3 weeks or so. We are in the breakdown for now folks, but this is also a time of powerful transformation. Then once we enter into Sagittarius season starting November 23rd, we can start to work on rebuilding our lives and getting what we really want, especially with lucky Jupiter moving into the sign it rules, Sagittarius, for nearly 12 months!

Have a revealing and safe Scorpio Season.

Mercury enters Scorpio

Deeper Thoughts
By Ruby

image

 

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

image

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.

New Moon Times
Pacific Time, October 8 at 8:46 p.m.

Have a Magical New Moon Day!

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”

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

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.
