Neptune Retrograde 2019

On 21st of June Neptune turns Retrograde.
Discover your inner-muse?


This fog rolls in and casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes in regards to what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self.

This is an excellent time to strengthen your spiritual game folks, start a journal and record your dreams as well, make a vision board, and tune into what people are not saying rather than their words. Your intuition and psychic hunches are strong as this mystical planet changes direction. However, your logical mind is taking a vacay for the next 5 months! So trying to figure out where other folks are coming from, or finding information can be difficult, (especially while Mercury is in Retrograde as well!)

During this cycle you will be required to pay extra careful attention to the details as they will be elusive. And since we can be vulnerable now, and way more into the fantasies that play in our heads, assume if something sounds too good to be true, that it probably is! Don’t be a victim during this time which is the Shadow side of Neptune, we can be suckers and get taken if we don’t pay attention! It’s also all about the escape during this Neptune’s Retro period, it might be all to easy to leave your responsibilities behind and not deal with the reality of what is happening in the here and now on planet Earth!

This influence can get some of you into trouble if you choose to delve into things like alcohol, or drugs just to escape. It’s important to have a support system if you feel weak. So make sure and talk about how you are feeling to someone, during this time, let those pent up emotions out and be motivated by the fact that Neptune’s Retrograde cycle can indeed be a time to heal the spirit. This is a time to discover what helps inspire you, and find your own inner-muse!

Stay creative and tap into the best part of this energy!

Saturn/Neptune-Future Goals

Rubys Astro Readings
Tues, June 18


For All Zodiac Signs:
Please Note that if you usually just skim over my blogs and sort of get the highlights that is awesome, but today’s Blog is extremely important to really understand as the Cosmic Energies are affecting us so profoundly right now, that you may want to read all of this one!


The Moon remains in more earthy Capricorn all day long. This is a strong time for making a realistic dream come true. The Moon is still somewhat Full, causing some emotional waves here and there. Just don’t get worked up too much over nothing.


Future Goals
Have you been working hard at changing something big in your life, or do you feel pulled on to make a major change?

A long-term strong influence between the Lord of Karma, Saturn and dreamy Neptune has been running strong since January, but peaks out this week and again in November of 19, and runs its course throughout 2019. This helps us bring some kind of structured dream or goals, and our faith together. This is sconce meets beliefs it’s been interesting. It’s quite a supportive energy, but also intense feeling as it pushes us to reach goals and go after our dreams. It has been rough for some of you, as this influence makes it crystal clear what we can do, and should do in regards to our future plans and goals. So some things have fallen away in our lives this year, or we have been made aware of something that isn’t going to work out anymore. If we like it or not, understand it or not! This has helped breathe new life into our visions, as long as we are making a real effort towards realizing a dream.

This energy has primarily been affecting our plans, that we’ve been building on already, be it about a job or relationship. It’s can be about anything. So it’s been smoothing our rough edges when it comes to business plans and goals. It’s also giving us a sense of purpose or a mission in life again, which puts us on a path towards our soul journey in this life. If you connect it your spiritual self and do a little bit of work and make some effort you’ll be rewarded. This gives us a reason to be dedicated and committed towards our own unique spiritual path, while still building something real right here and now. So we might just end up showing our devotion to whatever it is we believe in through our hard work and service.


Two Steps Ahead
Mental Mercury aligns with driven Mars in the sign of Cancer today. Since we want to get things done our communication skills are on point! There are two different sides to this aspect’s influence, which fuses the intellectual powers of Mercury with the assertiveness of Mars. We can feel motivated, driven, and passionate about communicating or doing anything mentally. It can be an amazing time for sports or energy work, as this energy helps sync our minds with our bodies. Powerful Pluto hooks into this energy as well today, turning our attention towards fixing or solving a problem, just don’t get obsessed. Our family and home life take center stage, as our security is extremely important during this time. We can come off as insensitive when expressing our feelings because we are all “in your face” and to the point. By being allowed to vent or talk about our problems out loud can be liberating, and it also helps rid of any excess mental energy in a healthy way.


Powerful Emotions
However, this influence also creates tension, as we can be overly excited about our ideas and opinions, and we aren’t in the mood to listen to others input! This makes the energies extremely competitive. Whether we speak about our feelings or not is our choice. Just know that communications come with extra speed and impact today. If you say it, mean it, and be willing to work through the outcomes that probably will follow! So it just might be wise to sit with your powerful feelings, as any conflicts or confrontations we are involved in right now can pull out some nasty or perhaps suppressed feelings or anger! On the other hand, if you’ve been needing to express yourself in some way, it’s a powerful time to say what you need to and get your point across! Just know when enough is enough if you can.

We can get pushy when it comes to knowing the truth about something, and exposing what’s real and what’s false. But we make mountains out of molehills. This can bring out paranoid thoughts and a ridiculous amount of suspicious behavior and thinking! If we can try to make this a lesson and learn from any jealousy felt, this can help us understand more so what it is we really want and truly desire.

What a time it is folks, full of intense feelings and emotions, so make sure to think before reacting, and have a good day.

June Full Moon

FULL MOON WEEKEND 

For all the Signs of the Zodiac:



Starting early Saturday morning the Moon shifts into more optimistic, sunny Sagittarius, and will grow until it becomes FULL early in the morning on Monday, June 17th at 3:31 AM CST, 4:31 AM EDT, 2:31 AM MDT, and 1:31 AM PST!


A Full Moon is when the Sun in Gemini (this month) is directly the opposite of the Moon in Sagittarius (this month), and this is a rather naturally impulsive kind of energy, that can have us feeling scattered and all over the place, so things can be quite unpredictable! 


This is such an awesome time as we get the whole weekend to celebrate this glorious Full Moon energy, and hopefully, you will do some energy work, and SET INTENTIONS or make out WISH LISTS that are more so about letting go of what is no longer working or serving you in life. This is strong and potent energy to celebrate and enjoy with this Full Moon being in “the life of the party,” sign of Sagittarius. This Full Moon forms under the mutable, changeable sign of Sagittarius, alongside expansive Jupiter, so we must expect some sort of changes to naturally occur, as this is a time to seek out new activities and explore different areas of life, and hopefully, we find something that provides fulfillment. 


When the Moon is traveling through the sign of Sagittarius, you might feel like the “grass is greener” on the other side of whatever it is you are giving attention too! You may feel like “jumping ship” from your regular routines or doing something different like learning a new language. The lessons of Sagittarius energy no matter your “Sun Sign” is to be more hopeful, optimistic, and adventurous. This energy helps all of us learn how to “live life out loud” and to believe in the possibilities. We can feel more free-spirited and express ourselves more openly under the Moon in Sagittarius. And this energy is definitely one where we “tell it like it is!”


We are more motivated to seek out the truth in this energy and go after a new vision, as we go on new adventures even if it’s just ones playing in our minds, which in turn can help us feel more calm and content. The details aren’t as important as seeing “the whole picture” is now.


Spontaneity is key to enjoying this energy because planning ahead limits the adventure that we want to have and that’s just boring! We generally prefer to go with the wind and just “Wing It” in the Sagittarian energy.


Since the Moon reflects and is attuned to our deeper emotions, we may also be quite sensitive to being judged or criticized for our behavior, so we may shy away from others and hide, so that can’t see who we truly are. But with both Jupiter and the Moon being in more open-minded Sagittarius, it may prove challenging to hide anything under this Full Moon, as all around this is a strong time for Truth! This adds more spark to an already strong emotional firey energy! Any feelings that get stirred up during this time, are going to be so strong that we may feel like a pot of boiling water and have to express ourselves no matter the consequences. 


We’re more likely to overdo things and express ourselves a little too much during this time. Sagittarius energy is about the process of self-discovery and finding something new and exciting. So we tend to not think first and can say “out loud” exactly what we are thinking and sometimes end up “putting our foot in our mouth!”


The following activities are generally favored during the Moon in Sagittarius; adventures, unplanned activities, travel, higher education and learning, publishing projects, advertising, sports, and physical activity!


There also is a current T-Square energy with a Jupiter-Neptune Square coming together during this Full Moon. So even if we don’t understand the motivations of others, we need to make it a point to connect to our hearts and show empathy when faced with the truth. Dealing with obstacles and setbacks can cause frustrations, which can lead us into negative thinking like the Universe is beating us up! Instead, view them as lessons in true Sagittarius fashion and be more optimistic about your experiences instead, see them as character building to help us to become masters!


Full Moon Madness is upon us folks!

Pay attention as June’s Full Moon comes together Monday morning, so this weekend can be full of some weird but strong energies and experiences. Make sure to remember the Full Moon causes a physical reaction that usually provokes an emotional response that can affect all of us! It just depends on how we learn to handle the energy or don’t. There’s always going to be the ones who don’t handle it well and may act out and get wild under this Full Moon energy, so expect for some people to just act out of character. Otherwise, enjoy this time and celebrate this glorious illumination. 


Happy Full Moon,
~Ruby

Venus Enters Gemini

On June 8, Venus the Goddess of Love, that rules over our relationships and often financial affairs enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3rd.

We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious, under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the lines in any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity. Which with Venus involved, the Goddess of Love, that means some people are also going to be more curious than usual about being free and not in a relationship, as the air sign Gemini influence can make us desire more alone time, and we can feel quite detached and therefore, this is not a time to take love or a relationship too seriously. Keep it light and fluffy folks!

On the other hand under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity however, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow. This energy keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects our love lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky.

Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies, but very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time, so you may want to be more careful about taking on our lovers emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks!

It is a good time to connect intellectually with others relationships, but especially with our partners, as we feel each other’s energies in a unique way. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep our relationships more above the surface for now.

This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky and not just get it on with anyone who is willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore.

Venus also rules over money, and since there are two sides to the sign of the twins, Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We are cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like movies, books, apps online, and writing materials. So even when money is low, we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend.

Enjoy!

Mercury in Cancer – Sincere Communication

*For All Zodiac Signs*

 
Mercury enters the sign of more sensitive, and stronger feeling Cancer later today, on June 4th. This transits runs through June 29th! But we will have to retrace our steps back into Mercury in Cancer in July when Mercury goes Retrograde!
 
 
For now, with Mercury in Cancer, we communicate with our hearts and emotions first. We think, speak, and take in information on a deeper emotional level now. We tend to follow our gut instincts more so now, which is helpful if we listen to our intuition.

 

This transits influence makes us less interested in what’s happening in the real world. We can be sort of selfish, as we go more inward with our thoughts and feelings. We are more concerned about what affects us personally, which includes more focus being put on the people that are near and dear to our hearts and upbringing.

 

Our thoughts are more colored by our emotions and how we are feeling, which can make it more challenging to be objective or fair, although this energy can help us feel our thoughts out first before expressing them. Which means we are more sincere and authentic. This can produce stronger moments of pessimistic thinking, or negative thoughts, so we must be more mindful and perhaps work harder at thinking more positive. Some folks tend to be shyer during this time, and will need to be reassured to feel safe enough to be vulnerable. But this influence does help our communications to be more authentic and loving at times, but also full of emotions.

 

Communicate From Your Soul

Setting Intentions – New Moon

Setting Intentions-New Moon
June 3rd, 2019

“The New Moon for June will be coming together very early Monday morning, between now and then is a time to plant new seeds of intentions with the Universe, this will be a shift and a new energy that we need to take us out of the energies we’ve been under.

The days following a New Moon phase are auspicious. The actual day of the New Moon, the balsamic or dark Moon period, marks the beginning point when the heavens shift from dark to light. On the following days magic is in the air and our inner life is awakened. During the New Moon cycle we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting some seeds of intention and getting in touch with our Soul. It’s a good time to be grateful for what you have, and to work on manifesting what you’d like next to show up in your life next.

Setting Intentions under the New Moon

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 power, Source, Guides, Angels, or whatever you connect with), and ask for the New Moon to light up the paths towards your deepest desires, ask to be shown what your wanting to manifest. Plant seeds of intentions with your mind and heart. So think it, but make sure and feel it!

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

First you should set the mood, and create the energy, so light some candles, burn some incense or sage, and perhaps play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes and questions. Ask yourself what would you would like to manifest or create, and what energy you’re trying to bring into your life?

As your doing your ritual and setting your intentions, here’s some helpful questions to think about. What are you choosing or what changes would you like to see in your life? What energy should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now? What kind of energy do you want to create in your life during this New Moon?

Next most importantly you’re going to Visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take some nice long deep breathes, now enter into your heart Chakra in the middle of your chest (the space you feel love from.) Visualize yourself in the desire or dream you’re creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, and don’t forget to smell that new car smell. See yourself manifesting what you would like to call in during the New Moon. Just don’t think about it, make sure and “FEEL IT”, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.

The New Moon phase is the best time for planning and seeding your intentions. You’re going to need to be patient and wait for the seeds of intention you have planted to grow, just like you would wait on a flower to sprout from a seedling. Just remember when a plant grows it needs sunlight. This is also true for us humans, as we get our ideas together and make our visions known, it takes some time for our wishes or desires to surface into reality from the dark of Moon aka New Moon. We should start to see the path open up by the light of the Full Moon in a couple of weeks time, then you must follow and set intentions once again until you reach your goal. It’s all about keeping your heart focused on what you deeply desire. Try this New Moon ritual and see if you can get on the path towards your dreams.

Have a Happy New Moon.

June New Moon

A Time Of Communication

June 3, 2019

Here’s some information on the potent New Moon cycle for the month of June 2019.

The New Moon occurs on Monday, June 3, 2019. This is a rather lovely energy for spiritual expansion, creative endeavors, and anything artistic. The New Moon energy starts up a few days prior to it peaking, so if you receive some sort of message, sign, or ah-ha moment, make sure and jot it down, as there can be some important messages coming in during this time. Have a little faith and take safe risks with any ideas, plans, or goals that you are feeling.

Under so much energy of the Twins Sign of Gemini, we should be improving our communication skills by listening to others and enjoying their points of view, rather than trying to find some other answer. Re-evaluate your communication social skills like on social media platforms, by asking yourself how much information you actually take in and communicate in a friendly, non-threatening way. It’s a time to listen to your gut instincts and follow your intuition, as all sorts and kinds of communication is in the spotlight. Under this potent Gemini energy, it’s an opportunity to make very important changes in our lives. And since under this particular New Moon the Sun, Moon, and Mercury are all in the sign of Gemini, that’s three times the power and energy to work with.

The June New Moon is in the sign of Gemini, so this is an especially strong time for all you Air Signs, so Aquarius, Libra, and of course Gemini. But also all you Scorpio Sun Signs can have some good luck in your relationships now. But whatever sign you may be, all of us have a stronger sense of awareness during this New Moon cycle. Our power of telepathy is strong, and so you may sense the people close to you or around you more clearly, so what they are thinking and feeling.
During this New Moon cycle, feisty Mars makes a tense opposition to expansive Jupiter, which can put out a strong vibe of sexual chemistry between people period. This means we are attracted to each other more so than usual, but if it’s not something sexual it can also heighten our attraction to each other, which just makes it easier to get along. But you might start feeling wildly passionate about someone or something, so go ahead and take a chance and see what happens. This is a strong time for success in relationships and around jobs or work.
It’s time to come up with a plan, and for jotting down all your ideas, plans, and future goals you keep thinking about. Under the lunar energy of the New Moon in Gemini we have a boost of extra confidence, and since New Moon’s are the best time of the month for new beginnings and for Setting Intentions, it’s a great combo to call upon the Cosmos for a new beginning of your very own.
Make sure and do any New Moon Energy work, like making our Wish Lists or burning Bay Leaves while the Moon is still in the sign of Gemini, which is the sign the New Moon occurs under. Never Set Intentions when the Moon during its Void Cycle, so you have until later in the morning Tues, June 4th. This gives you plenty of time to make your Intentions clear with the Universe about your future plans and goals.

New Moon Times On June 3
  • Eastern Time, 6:03 am
  • Pacific Time, 3:03 am
  • Central Time, 5:03 am
  • Mountain Time, 4:03 am
  • If you are in a different time zone, please look it up.

Astro Monthly Forecast for June 2019


June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end. 


The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy. 

Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!


On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.


On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long. 


Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances. 


On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.


The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well. 


On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune, this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.


June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow periodMercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!


Happy Summer Solstice.
Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!

On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.

The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.

The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.


On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes with what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self more. 


On June 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.


Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at healingruby@gmail.com or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings,

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

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.
