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

For All Zodiac Signs
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!
At least 2018 ended on more of a quiet note astrologically. But January is going to be complex as it starts off with a Solar and Lunar Eclipse. And passionate Mars just entered in its own sign of fiery Aries on the last day of 2018, where it feels at home, so its power is boosted by this influence. This can have us feeling more spontaneous, forward-thinking, and even courageous during its run! There’s a competitive spirit in the air and our goal is to win! So take it easy and make sure to slow yourself down from time to time, and check yourself about what you’re actually doing. Avoid being overly impulsive or you can make mistakes or get involved in accidents during Mars transit in the sign of Aries.
Mental Mercury enters more stable Capricorn on the 5th of January, and this slows down the way we process information, as our thinking becomesmore methodical. We tend to be more focused, sober, and practical during this time. One trait we certainly can use is how much easier it is to concentrate ontasks at hand under this influence. Conversations are more realistic and focused, especially on business and more practical matters. People seem to have more sound reasoning skills, but we must be careful about being narrow-minded, cold, cut-off, and not having a sense of humor at least every once in awhile.
The Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Capricorn also occurs on January 5th, and it is between the planets Saturn and Pluto. This New Moon Eclipse is unusual since the Sun and Moon are surrounded by Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto. This Capricorn Stellium as its called has more power with the Moon’s South Node, which means old ways, and patterns of behavior may come up. This is a complicated New Moon, with all these different influences at play. Even though conservative Capricorn might want things to be more constructive. But at least we value the importance that things take time under these influences, which helps us to be more patient in most any situation. Saturn rules Capricorn and is often thought to rule over time!
The planet Uranus the “divine messenger” of the Cosmos turns direct on January 6th after five months of being in Retrograde, and what a time this was. This planet affects us so strongly, so it’s really worth learning where it is placed in your own personal Birth Chart and where it is cruising through your Chart now! As Uranus gains speed in the coming weeks ahead, our urge to express ourselves in a more creative and unique way becomes more evident. It’s a time to take some chances or risks and for rebellion. We are going to be able once again to listen to your own instincts, but we also can stir up some serious changes that re-awaken us on a deep level. We now will begin to see more clearly, so we can make necessary changes for ourselves and the world, and we won’t be just sitting around waiting to play victim while changes are suddenly thrust upon us, so we feel like we have some more control. The only issues are Uranus remains in hot-headed Aries through March time and that will continue to spark us up and cause lots of interesting changes and crazy weather as well.
Venus the planet of Love and often associated with money will move into the sign of enthusiastic Sagittarius on January 7th. This is a strong romantic energy that shifts us from feeling intense to cheerful and lively! This Sagittarius influence, of course, has its own intense feeling moments, considering it is a Fire Sign. But this energy is just way less focused then what we’ve been dealing with during Venus in Scorpios time, which had us way more focused on intimacy with just one person. Hopefully, you have learned more about the folks in your life and discovered who you can trust, now you will be ready for this new Sagittarius love fest energy to come in and meet new people and seek out more fun experiences. Sagittarian love or energy for all of us is way more open and free, it’s a universal kind of love, it’s a free for all! So you will be free for a while to love anyone and everyone from this earthly plane and beyond. Enjoy it while it lasts, lots of boundaries are going to be crossed while Venus is in Sagittarius! Venus will be in Sagittarius until February 3rd.
On Jan. 13th, excitable Jupiter forms a tense connection to foggy Neptune, this is the first in a set of three meetings, with the other two happening in June and September, and this can cause struggles with our expectations, faith, and dreams. We may be deceived more easily under this influence, whether by others or just our own unrealistic or high expectations. We may have to deal with certain consequences that come from being disorganized, extravagant, neglectful, or from some sort of exaggeration. This tends to make folks feel more restless, and routines are not as satisfying. This is a time when we can take a break or maybe detoured from our more practical paths into something much different, so pay attention folks! We are more easily disillusioned by something or even someone, so we need to be more careful about ignoring things altogether, only to later start justifying some sort of new opinion, belief, or philosophy for our behavior just to avoid certain situations or responsibilities. There also will be a lot more wandering, as it can be hard to feel grounded while this is in play for the week of Jan 13th and then again later on in June and September. We also might have issues with setting healthy boundaries for ourselves. There will be a need to ground ourselves back to Earth! If we can stick to certain routines, and remain more disciplined than those set rhythms can help counteract this tendency. Spiritual inspiration is also strong because we can let go of old false beliefs, expectations, and behaviors.
Also around this time, Jupiter is forming a challenging connection to rebellious Uranus, which just reinforces our feelings of restlessness if our dreams are no longer fulfilling us or are not a source of inspiration anymore. This is a time where we go out on little adventures that are totally impractical or unusual tangents, only to realize we can’t finish what we want, there’s not a lot of staying power under this influence.
The Full Moon occurs on Monday, January 21, 2019, in the very first degree of Leo and it’s also a Total Lunar Eclipse. This is about achieving something! There will be a stronger sense of urgency, that’s exciting and it can make us feel somewhat anxious. This can cause us to feel a crisis around lack, it’s a time when we suddenly might realize there is a greater need or want when matters seem to come to light that has been beneath the surface. The Full Moon is a time of truth and this means we have a stronger desire to gain knowledge, but couple that with the Eclipses intensity and this makes for a highly charged up energy. With the Full Moon in the sign of dramatic Leo, we get an opportunity to tap into our pride, as our instincts around survival are stronger than usual, so we tend to be more observant of others. We value others opinions and know our reputation is important during this time. There is also a challenging connection between game-charger Uranus, the planet of uncertainty, which can cause rebellious behavior but this energy also brings about change and opportunity.
The Full Moon each month is always a good time to bring back some sort of balance in your life, as it magnifies already existing problems to sort through, which is why folks feel so highly emotional during a Full Moon! During January’s Full Moon the Sun in Aquarius will just have started and will meet up with the Moon in Leo, so we are working on striking a balance between focusing on our personal pleasures and our need to help our community. This is a time of enlightenment that brings an opportunity to explore our emotional needs, which can lead to positive actions and decisions. Full Moons also raise our awareness around the little flaws in our romantic relationships, and often in our relationships with our children. So there can be a sense of urgency or sudden need or desire to express ourselves, it’s a strong compulsion to come to a resolution of a problem. This is a time when there are often final word or decisions made.
With mental Mercury entering the sign of Aquarius on January 24th certain situations become more impersonal, as our minds are more capable and help us move through our earthly routines and patterns. This will also help us to better process our feelings that are a direct result from problems that have occurred during the past month or so, especially around relationships and the Eclipse energies. This energy helps us to mentally detach long enough to take care of business and rectify any damaging problems we have been involved in if we can get our head out of the clouds long enough to focus. Remember under this energy reality is sometimes blurred a bit if we don’t keep our feet on the ground. But we also can experience waves of Ah-Ha moments and epiphanies that can be full of some amazing stuff! So pay attention, and write your thoughts and feelings down often during this time.
On the 31st of January, another outer planet is making a strong meeting that influences us through much of 2019! Saturn makes a rather harmonious connection to dreamy Neptune, in what’s called a sextile. With Saturn’s discipline bringing structure or meaning to our dreams and ideals this can be the stuff dreams are made of! Neptune brings in the energy of acceptance and devotion which can help bring new meaning to our work, traditions, and customs. This makes it easier to enjoy a feeling a sense of purpose in our lives, we feel more spiritual plugged in and like our material world is harmonizing together with our spirit. Our attitude and circumstances just happen to help us follow through on our dreams and turn our visions and ideals into reality! This influence helps us to combine our imaginations and effort which can bring about success. There can be a stronger sense that our dreams can be a reality, and therefore, we can build a stronger faith and acceptance into our world.
It’s an interesting New Year and New Month ahead folks, enjoy it, there is a real opportunity this year to make more positive changes in your life, so go make things happen! ~Ruby
