Sun and Mercury in Gemini

A Time For Communication!

For All Zodiac Signs 


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


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


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


While the Moon and Mercury are both in the sign of Gemini we can feel nervous or more restless, so it’s best to keep yourself busy gathering and processing information. Read, write, research, and take care of business or run errands. Make only short-term deals and no long-lasting commitments, because we are supposed to be just collecting information for later, as it can be quite valuable later on. It’s important to take breaks and get physically active during this time, this will help your mind relax. Be social and look for different and interesting people to mingle with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles. 


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


Enjoy this time,

Full Moon in Scorpio

For All Zodiac Signs:
The build-up of energy to the Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18th has begun! This Full Moon marks the beginning of a new energy cycle for all of us! On Saturday afternoon, the Sun in Taurus opposes the Moon in Scorpio and a Full Moon occurs.

The closer to Earth the Moon gets as it builds to go Full the stronger its energies are felt, as this energy intensifies we feel it on a very deep emotional level. You’re probably already feeling it! You might feel nervous, tired, or just anxious, and lots of folks don’t sleep very well when the Full Moon starts to form, which can last through the weekend. Our dreams are usually very strong and vivid during a Full Moon and wThis is an emotional time and our energy is focused more so on romance and our relationships.
Our deepest emotions are what manifests our life! If we understand it or not, due to most of it being unconscious as the Moon rules over this part of us on a deep soul level. If we are aware of it or not! Therefore, it’s important to keep our energies on a higher vibrational level this weekend. If we can sustain a somewhat higher vibration within ourselves then our life will reflect just that and we can manifest our goals, wishes, and desires much easier.
Each month the Full Moon helps us discover certain truths, so as we gain this clarity we can work on specific wishes or desires. The Moon also help us release and let go of situations, people, or energies to make room for whatever new energies we are trying to manifest. Full Moons create endings in this way, and then two weeks later during the next New or Dark Moon we can start planting seeds for something else new to begin, so we are always moving energies in and out of our lives.
During this Full Moon, the Universe is inviting you to work on something specifically! And that all depends on just where the Full Moon is going through your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart”. This tells you what part of your life you should be focusing on, but you probably are already being made of aware of what it is about by now.
Under this particular Full Moon, we have to deal with the Taurus-Scorpio energies and create some sort of balance between what’s considered to be “yours” and “ours!” The energy is focused on how we feel versus our own personal transformation. While the Taurus energy wants us to deal with matters around personal values, material things, possessions, and security. The Scorpio energy rules things like shared possessions, change, discovery, and transformation. The Sun in Taurus encourages us to feel happier by keeping things simple, while the Scorpio Moon is more complex feeling and wants us to dive deeper into the mysteries of life.
This Full Moon is pushing and pulling on us emotionally to find a balance between these two very different energies. And we tend to make some pretty strong emotional declarations during this time, so the pressure is building up within us, and now is the time when this energy has to come out and be released in one way or another! Like a boiling pot of water, something has to overflow.
My best advice is to find constructive ways to release these overwhelming feelings through some sort of self-expression. So if you can talk to a friend and vent about how you are feeling, or maybe write in a journal. Or go somewhere private and vent out loud! Yell, Scream, or Cry out those feelings and let things go and release whatever is bothering you.
Full Moons are about exposing or illuminating issues that are already there, but that has not yet been dealt with.
The Full Moon will light up any conflict you might having right now and intensity it! With the Moon all shiny and full in the night sky, it is symbolic for any illumination that occurs in our own lives. But since these feelings and our Ah-ha moments are new and emotional, they can come out suddenly! It’s the right time to express ourselves and for these feelings to just come out into the open. But proceed with caution, since we are just learning ourselves what these energies are about, so we may be quite irrational and not make a lot of sense as of yet!
This Full Moon also is occurring right around the time that Venus and Uranus align which can add surprises and revelations. This alignment also connects to deeper feeling Pluto which can cause strong need to make some sort of changes that feels necessary.
Have a Happy Blessed Full Moon,

Mercury shifts into Taurus



Astro Alert – a time to focus!


For All Zodiac Signs

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

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

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

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

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

Luck Comes Alive!



Rubys Astro Readings
May 2019


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May you have lucky times ahead!

New Moon in Taurus-Manifest

May 4, 2019


Happy New Moon folks!



The May New Moon is in the sign of Taurus and this is a time for new beginnings as this cycle marks a major turning point for many of you. This New Moon phase is an actual harmonious connection between the Sun and Moon, and both of them just happen to be in the sign of Taurus this go around, so it’s very strong and potent energy to manifest under. This is a time of learning what it is we truly value, and what genuinely makes us feel more happy and content with life.


This New Moon means business this time around, as the planets around it are very supportive for creating and manifesting, as they are lining up with Moon in it’s New or Dark cycle (this is a good kind of dark), and are totally supportive in helping us bring in whatever we focus on. But you must plan on starting now, you must focus on what you want to happen next in your life, and make a commitment to yourself that you will follow through with any commitments that you make. This is the time to dream about what it is you want but also to make out some sort of Wish Lists, so you can manifest what it is you want in your life. Manifest from your heart and soul! We should be focusing on what it is we can do to increase our own feelings of self-worth, and how to make our lives more simple. This is also a great time to reconnect with the outside world. Under this lunation, we can feel a sense of purpose and like we are on a mission, as we are ready to take on projects that bring personal pleasure back into our lives.


This is such a strong and amazingly potent energy for planting some sort of intentions, which means you should take the time to write down or meditate on what it is you truly want in your life. Ask the Universe to help you move forward now. You can shout it from the rooftops, it doesn’t’ matter how you go about it, just put that energy out there on the airwaves! Making some sort of promise or commitment to what you truly desire is going to manifest in one way or another under this ripe energy!


By the time we get to the weekend when the New Moon comes together many of you will have already made up your mind about what it is you truly want to do next, so you will be ready to make your move. Don’t make the mistake of missing this major cosmic event and accidentally allowing your thoughts and ego to randomly focus on whatever it wants, and then you end up manifesting from a more unconscious space. Be aware, be awake, and make your Intentions clear and known! We must be mindful about our thoughts at this time because whatever we are thinking or feeling is what will be. Be in a space where you operate from your heart to promote healing in your life. We are at a point now where we believe so strongly that we can have what we want without any doubt or second-guessing ourselves. We are in a wonderful place to manifest what it is we truly desire because the way the planets are lining up during this particular New Moon is extremely ripe for New Beginnings and can bring in whatever it is we want or focus on.


During this New Moon cycle, we should be making goals and commitments around the traits of the sign of Taurus and its lessons for all of us. Taurus energy is about being comfortable and secure on this earthly plane of existence, and learning how to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. It’s a time to savor and enjoy any activity that involves a connection to nature and our bodies. Taurus energy teaches all of us how to enjoy what sustains life, so things like food and anything grown from the earth or organic, as we seem to have a much deeper spiritual connection to ourselves and the planet. This means we can work on healing our bodies and ourselves. We enjoy what stimulates the senses immensely, so things like art, music, sexual activity, and again food!


Again, this is a manifesting New Moon under the sign of Taurus, so we should make sure to take some time to Set Intentions with the Cosmos and write out our wish lists about what kind of energy and events we would like to see unfold next in our lives! What paths do you want to head down next? What would bring you the most pleasure?


It’s advised to take some time to stop and enjoy life and rely on good old fashioned common sense. But stay aware of what makes you feel more comfortable and secure. It’s a time to reassess your relationships to money and material possessions and discover what truly makes you feel happy in life. Then take some time to write it all down, ask this New Moon for what it is you want next in life. Set Intentions! What path would you like to go down next, what will take you towards your happiness! And make sure to close your eyes and feel whatever you wrote and visualize it!


In the Taurus New Moon cycle, we have the opportunity to make some seriously important changes to our lives. So make plans and goals that are solid but also realistic. Then hopefully later you’ll see new beginnings and rewards, no matter how big or small they may be. In two weeks time, from now during the next Full Moon at the end of May, is when you should start seeing major changes take place.


Have a safe, blessed, an abundant New Moon,
~Ruby

New Moon Manifesting!


The New Moon energy will be quite comforting in the sign of Taurus on May 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 energy can feel natural and comforting, as we should be focused on building onto whatever foundations we already have and keeping them secure.


This is a time when feelings need to be expressed in our friendships and partnerships, as we develop a stronger sense of what we want in our lives. This is also a great time to push forward with whatever we were releasing around the last Full Moon in April.


This New Moon in the sign of Taurus, and it does affect everyone, as it harmonizes with the planets Neptune, Saturn, Pluto, and the Moon’s North Node, this means it just feels more natural to connect to something that gives us a sense of purpose so we can make changes and start up something new. This is a time to fulfill a deep mission within ourselves, by doing something that fulfills our soul. It is easy to overdo things and go overboard, and we can be sort of cocky or have a bit of an attitude with Mars making a tense opposition to larger than life Jupiter. 


This influence can help us finish up the little things that need to be sorted out, as it helps us make room for 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 or Cosmos (meaning your higher-self, higher power, Guides, Angels, the God of your understanding 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 maybe burn some incense or sage. Next 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, or what energy your trying to bring into your life. Think of it this way 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 building on, or starting new?
  • 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?

One of the most important parts of Setting Intention with the New Moon, is FEELING what it is you really want to have happen or see come in your life.


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 Chakra, the middle of your chest! 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.


Some folks like to burn their Intentions or Wishlists after they have performed their ritual, so just make sure to do it in a safe place. Others keep their lists until the next Full Moon and burn them at that time. Everyone does it a little bit differently, but the Universe knows either way, just do what works for you!


Allow the Universe to show you what paths to follow over the next month, and allow the New Moon to 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 been focused on!


New Moon Timing

The New Moon occurs at the following times below: but we can start our energy Intentions work on Friday afternoon, in the states, when the Moon shifts into the sign of Taurus. 

  • Eastern Time, 6:45 pm
  • Pacific Time, 3:45 pm
  • Central Time, 5:45 pm
  • Mountain Time 4:45 pm

Have a Happy, Lucky, and Abundant New Moon!

Saturn Goes Retrograde A Wake-Up Call!



Saturn Goes Retrograde
April 29 – Sept 18
By Rubys Readings


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May Monthly Forecast



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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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


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

Weekly Love Forecast

End of April first of May
For All Zodiac Signs 


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


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


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


Have a loving week folks

Pluto Goes Retrograde!

by Rubys Readings

Pluto Turns Retrograde (Backward) in the sign of Capricorn

April 24 – Oct 3rd
For All Zodiac Signs:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Venus Moves into Aries! -“Love On Fire”


Venus enters Aries – “Love On Fire”


From April 20 – May 15


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

Sun in Taurus


This is for All Zodiac Signs!

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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