New Moon Update 
For All Zodiac Signs

The NEW MOON occurs on Thursday, September 17th, 2020, at 7:00 AM EDT.

The New Moon occurs Thursday morning when the Moon aligns with the Sun both in the sign of Virgo. This influence also connects with Saturn and Pluto quite closely, which creates a stronger need to play by the rules, while keeping some sort of power and control over our daily activities and routines. 

This is a time for new beginnings, and this New Moon is an excellent opportunity for us to come up with some simple goals that lineup with the Virgo energies. So we should concentrate on new ways to get our day to day lives more organized, and our daily routines in order. 

It’s a time to Set Intentions with the New Moon energy! We should write out lists of what we want to manifest in our lives. Some keywords to think of while making out your lists are analytical, intelligence, reserved, critical, helpful, conscious, aware, detailed, and resourceful. Think about how to develop or enhance these traits into your own lives, and maybe expand these parts of your own personality. 

Remember that the sign of Virgo is in everyone’s personal Astrology Birth Chart, and that is the part of your life that will be the most affected by this influence. The New Moon in Virgo is an excellent time to make or commit to personal goals that express the more positive traits of the sign of the Virgin, which is symbolic for new beginning and innocence in the Zodiac. 

These include:

  • building up our immune systems (perfect timing) and being healthy, and constructive discrimination. 
  • clearing and cleaning out our spaces of clutter, so in our homes, work, and virtually. 
  • making ourselves concentrate on getting some serious work or business done. 
  • starting up something new that requires attention to detail. 
  • keeping up with to-do lists, and making out new ones if need be. 
  • allowing ourselves to be proud of our accomplishments, no matter how big or small.
  • paying more attention to our health and wellness, starting up new health regimes, learning more about nutrition, and paying more attention to our diet. 
  • being more mindful and setting up specific routines that are manageable and constructive. 
  • staying organized, keeping up with the important details of our daily routines.
  • Taking things step by step so we can free our minds of worry. 

Since we are more determined to improve our work, routines, and daily tasks, it’s a powerful time for coming up with practical solutions in our jobs and habits, it’s a time to take extra special care of our personal health and practice someself-care. Take advantage of this New Moon energy and focus on what you want, as you can really create some successful habits that can last way after this energy is long gone. 

Happy Blessed New Moon ~Ruby

Mars & Pluto Square Off!

Astro Alert! 🌟
For All Zodiac Signs

What a time to be alive as they say! The world has seemed to have gone mad in 2020, and to keep this exciting theme going the Cosmos is sending out some heavy-hitting energies this coming week starting August 10th. So forewarned is forearmed, and I have some information to pass on that hopefully will help you navigate through the tension Cosmic energies coming together!

Mars is making a tense Square to Pluto!

Mars the planet of aggression and passion is currently in its own sign of Aries, so this is warrior kind of energy. Pluto makes us thirsty for power and creates chaos, but it also brings deep personal transformation. Pluto is in security-based Capricorn currently stirring us up to gain power by marching to the beat of our own drum. This energy is like a match being lit to the flames that are already burning. Those who seek power or control on any level can get quite demanding, and just plain nasty, and especially manipulative during this time. We can struggle with any power plays or moves made on us by others, and we may have to deal with this kind of behavior from those who have some sort of authority over us, as we try to figure out just where we stand. This can be a time of great upset, trial, and tribulation. This influence can have us erupting in anger, and even rage! We are already seeing lots of upset globally, as people may not be able to handle the rage they feel deep inside over basic human needs and survival.

There are three frustrating squares between Mars and Pluto in 2020. The first one is on August 13th, but some will notice this energy starting up now!

When a planet meets up with Pluto they can get quite beat up by its demanding energy, and we can feel this energy and explore it deeply, as certain situations will play out bringing issues of power and control in strong focus in our lives! But war-like Mars loves a good fight, and this aspect challenges us to figure out who has the power and control in our lives. This can be with other people and society as a whole, (like things haven’t been already heated up enough with the powers that be in the US) but especially with those who have some sort of authority, power, or control over us, and of course those that want to! We might be asking who has the most power in the land. This square energy creates tension, but this helps us learn more about ourselves. Pluto has been connecting to many different planets this year putting us through major changes in our lives. We are already in a strong time of transformation, with powerful Pluto making its strong meetings this year also to stern Saturn and boosting Jupiter.

It’s most important that we pay attention to our reactions at this time, especially with authority figures. Try to figure out just what the real issues are underneath it all, and what’s causing our reactions. Anger is always about sadness, so perhaps you need to argue a bit so you can walk away from someone or something, and or even make a significant change! The best thing you can do is to remain respectful, and not fight below the belt while in this energy or it can get quite ugly! You also may want to think about controlling your responses to keep the damage down to a minimum, but you may not care, as there’s a stronger need to fight in the air right now. And some folks need to stick up for themselves and what they believe in, or for what is right. It’s something to definitely, ponder on, so you can use this energy for good.

Mars shift into fiery Aries!



Mars the planet that rules over our motivation, physical actions, assertive drive, ambition, passion, war, and sexual drive shifts signs on June 26, 2020, into more fast-paced, impulsive Aries all the way through January 6th, 2021. That is a really long time for Mars to be in one sign. Its extended stay in trailblazing Aries is due to its upcoming Retrograde phase, which starts on Sept. 9th and runs through Nov. 13th.

Mars is exceptionally comfortable in its home sign of Aries, as it’s ruler naturally. Our energy levels are stronger than usual, and we are more spontaneous, forward-looking, and bolder, and courageous under its influence, as it tends to get things moving so we are more active and confident. If we just follow our instincts, we can get things done super fast and precisely.

As Mars shifts into Aries this week, you’ll notice a definite surge in energy, motivation, and initiative. You don’t need anyone else to light that fire under you to get you going when Mars is transiting Aries. Talk about the ultimate self-starter. With this competitive, entrepreneurial energy in the sky, you will definitely want to begin a personal project. In addition to the remarkable energizer battery of Mars in Aries, you will also notice plenty of courage and fighting spirit. You will not back down from anything or anyone! Just remember, neither will others so expect an argument or a fight if there’s a situation you and someone else butt heads over. At least it will be an honest battle, though as Mars in Aries is not going to allow us to hide anything especially, our agendas.

After all, Mars is the planet of war, anger, and challenges, especially in its own sign of Aries the Warrior! So it tends to cause tension, restlessness, and anxiety for some. However, this also can be a very positive influence that gives us lots of energy. But we must be careful not to lose our cool. We have a strong competitive spirit as our goal is to win! But what are you battling for.? What are you winning in the end? Is it worth it? You are going to need to ask yourself these questions, as this influence can help us stay on task and motivated, but it also can cause impulsive behavior that can get people all fired up over much of nothing! Like things haven’t been heated-up enough out there! This energy could really make protests explode even more so, however with the Virus spreading like wildfire again, we are made to stay in once again, so we are going to need ways to get this energy out, so we don’t let it turn into anger.

Mars in Aries gives us a warrior-like attitude, therefore, its influence can spark up debates and discussions where we feel compelled to share our opinions and defend ourselves. Social media has already been exploding due to our current ongoing circumstances, so many of you will be sharing your frustrations, and there will be more arguing, of course. But remember, ask yourself if it’s worth it or not first.

When it comes to your sex life, expect a boost in libido. With Mars in Aries, we want immediate gratification and will do whatever it takes to get our needs met. There’s so much dynamic energy around this placement that you may wonder if there’s anything to worry about. Well, as with any planetary alignment, there’s a positive expression and a not so positive one. When Mars in Aries shines its light, we become fearless warriors or innovative pioneers. When it’s operating in the shadow, however, we can be rash, impatient, and selfish.

The darker side of Mars being in the sign of Aries is that we can sometimes be impatient, arrogant, impulsive, and self-centered! But if we can remember to take time out’s and not let our tempers get lit up so fast, as we can also be more authentic, enthusiastic, and straightforward. But we can also be quite narcissistic and not think of others as much, so don’t expect folks to be so worried about your “feelings”, as this is a time when we think ahead, and we are not as worried about the past. This can be challenging with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the sign of Cancer through the end of July! The sign of Cancer is all about being sensitive and worrying about other folk’s feelings, so the polar opposite of Aries and Mars, both. So we can feel pushed and pulled or even just reminded that we should care, but at the same time, we may not be feeling it!

If we pay attention and harness this Mars in Aries energy, we can be so productive and get so much done. Just remember people tend to take impulsive actions during this time, so often there are mistakes, mishaps, and accidents. It may take a week or so to get used to this energy, so we need to be a little extra careful, and take some extra precautions to stay safe, as some people are going to get more easily frustrated and aggressive under its influence. If we can take on a strategic kind of attitude, we can plan ahead and get things done in ways we never thought of, we have to be mindful and remember to not react without thinking things through first, which is always the most difficult challenge with Mars in Aries. Under the tense and frustrating energy we have already been dealing with due to COVID and the rioting, we must work extra hard to keep our cool and make sure that things remain calm, otherwise, it could be a bigger mess than we are already in.

Stay Safe & Be Well,

New Moon Setting Intentions Guide

Rubys Readings

“New Moon Setting Intentions Guide”

There’s a New Moon occurring soon, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish Lists Intentions can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.

*Setting Intentions*

During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have, so we can work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next. We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, or even love! It really doesn’t matter, but we have to take an action, both, physically and spiritually, together, to make it really happen and stick! And no, not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, so be patient. But it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.

Also, just sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!

At least by â€śSetting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL! And this work, just works! It’s that simple.

The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of New Beginnings when you can recharge your goals with new energy. During the New Moon, we often experience some sort of major â€śenergy shift.”

Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:

1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.

2. Share your Intentions with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.

3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. For example, taking even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.

4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.

So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!

What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?

Follow the Steps below to learn how:

Step One: Clear Your Sacred Space

Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do any New Moon work. Think about where you are going to do this work, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.

You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies! Maybe say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your Guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up the special space you are working in with the energy of light, love, and protection. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.

Step Two: Set the atmosphere

Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone, just make sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, and peaceful.

Step Three: Setting Intentions

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.

Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life, and be detailed about what you want to see happen next in your life, and what energies you’re willing to work with.

As you’re doing this work and Setting your Intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to change and create?

Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing too much on the how, why, and when’s around how you will get what you want! Instead, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to FEEL. See the end result! Only see the ultimate ending and again what it feels like when you receive what it is you are choosing! What you see in your mind’s eye, so don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make. Just allow the Universe to shoulder the burden for you once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest. Have some faith in something. Rule # One is always energy follows thought, it will come to you in one way or another, or you’ll be put at least on a path towards your goals.

Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you have written. Close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. Repeat this about 4 or 5 times. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you are actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, or driving that new car. Just don’t think it folks, make sure and FEEL IT, as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!

Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next month, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey, so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe or Moon thank you in advance.

You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good, and they actually could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work so you can clearly understand what the Universe is trying to show you!

Have a blessed New Moon and good luck. ~Ruby

Summer Solstice & The Sun In Cancer

The Summer Solstice & The Sun in Cancer

The Sun in Cancer begins in the North with the Sumer Solstice on June 20, 2020, when the days and nights are equal in length in light and dark.

With the Summer Solstice arriving the Sun also shifts into the protective, sensitive sign of Cancer. The Solstices are important because they open doorways of energy that has become known as the Summer and Winter Seasons, and these special days hold some magical energies we can use to manifest what we want in our lives. The Sun will remain in Cancer until July 22, 2020.

While the Sun is in Cancer for the next month we are more focused on family time, and the days begin to grow longer which is good for making memories. This sign influence means we tend to stick close to home as we have a stronger need for security with our home and family.

Eclipses tend to bring out the truth, as the things that are hidden, repressed, secret, or unknown are revealed. This is a great vibe for teamwork even with the Sun in more private Cancer. If our expectations are unreliable or unrealistic than we will probably be let down. Keep yourself grounded and in your thoughts strong and in reality, it is for the best during this time. With Mercury in Retrograde this time around, this might be more challenging than usual.

The Cancer energies aren’t always as sensitive as people portray it to be, we can also feel quite ambitious like the other Cardinal signs, so we are more tenacious about reaching our business and professional goals. It’s important to take care of your social obligations, as all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong and solid family and home base to fall back on. This helps keep everything on schedule.

When the Sun’s in Cancer, our thoughts naturally turn inward. This is a great time to reach out to loved ones that feel safe, and perhaps plan a very low-key get-together, or maybe finish up any home projects you’ve been needing to get done. We are looking for safety and protection around what we are creating, so we want to surround ourselves with what is secure and familiar.

The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon and so we can become a bit lunatic-like under its influence, especially if we are worn down, emotionally hurt, lonely, or overwhelmed. Our moods can go up and down rather quickly,
so for the next month, we become more intimate with the waxing and waning of the Moon and all her phases.

Our everyday lives are experienced on a much deeper emotional level with the Sun in Cancer, (no matter your sign.) This is a time when we can worry more about our emotional security, so we are naturally more concerned with the things that affect us personally. Even if we are interested in what’s happening in the world, we tend to want to protect and nurture those that are close to home more so than usual.

Cancer is the Zodiac Sign of the Mother, which is representative of water, so things like coziness, closeness, emotional bonding, (or bondage, hehe!) are experienced with more depth at this time. This can be quite evident in our everyday lives, as we can be more reactive and impulsive when it comes to our emotional connections with people and places.

This is a highly emotional time in if itself, and depending upon how the other planets in the Cosmos are connecting to the Moon and Sun of course. But our initial reaction is usually to take the road less traveled with the Sun in Cancer. We will do whatever it takes to not be exposed because we tend to feel more vulnerable, including sidestepping direct confrontation, unless of course, we are doing the confronting. So if we lose control we can get a little crazy.

This charged up emotional energy tends to trigger some of our most tender spots, so we can become illogical if we get frustrated or feel picked on. It’s just best to not let yourself go there, as our emotions take the wheel for the next month. It can prove difficult to be objective or as open-minded during this time, as we can be a bit pessimistic in our way of thinking, (especially, with Mercury in Retrograde as well). It’s helpful to work at keeping those thoughts more positive, and we may have to really work at it at times.

We are tapped into the realm of Cancer with the Sun is in this sensitive sign for the next month. So we are at our most powerful when using the power of emotion, with people and our experiences. This gives these are connections more depth and meaning that come from the heart which is good practice for us to learn anyway. Work on being more kind and compassionate while the Sun is in Cancer.

Enjoy your Summer and Happy Birthday all my beautiful Crabs people, Cancers!

Mercury Retrograde June 2020


Mercury Retrograde June 2020

For All Zodiac Signs:

Here we go again! Those two dreaded words are once again upon us, as “Mercury Retrograde” starts on June 18th and runs through July 12th!


Mercury Retrograde is usually quite annoying to most people as it causes communication and technology breakdowns, and it can bring delays with travel and shipments. However, this isn’t one of my normal anti-Mercury Retrograde write-ups, as this particular backward cycle of Mercury can likely be somewhat of a good influence as well. I know it’s an interesting turn of events! But rather than just being mischievous the trickster planet, Mercury might bring in some luck for some folks, as it makes a strong connection to the star, Sirius! So even as annoying as Mercury Retrograde can be at least this time around it can bring some success and wealth as well.

This Mercury in Retrograde is in the sign of Cancer, (June 21st-July 22nd) so it does tend to affect those with Cancer astrological placements in their personal “Natal Astrology Charts” a bit more strong, but it runs much deeper than that and affects all of us no matter what Signs we have.

Now there will also be challenges with this Mercury in Retrograde cycle as it’s aspecting the Eclipse on June 21st. The first part of the actual Retrograde cycle starts on the 18th can be bumpy folks, with travel issues that include driving or flying especially. There will be delays and cancellations of all kinds in all situations. And computer and online problems that affect both personal and business can be a really big issue this go around. 



Three Phases of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle:

June 2 to 18 – Pre-Shadow period before Mercury goes Retrograde, as it slows down

During this Shadow phase, you get a sample of what part of your life this particular Mercury Retrograde will affect


June 18 to July 12 – Is the Actual Retrograde Phase

During the actual Retrograde phase, we deal mainly with miscommunications and annoying technical glitches, this time I think we’ll see a whole lot of folks get visited from both friends and lovers from their past, as Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon and this brings up our past experiences to review and helps us tap into our unconscious mind. 


July 12 to 26 – The after Shadow phase that lasts until Mercury leaves Retrograde.

The after Shadow period is when things get wonky again at first, as we slowly get back to normal, at least we start to feel like we are mentally moving forward again and eventually back to some kind of normalcy. 


There are certain things we should be doing during a Mercury Retrogrades cycle, like starting something over or finishing up projects we’ve already started. Remember Mercury represents the mind and how we perceive information, so when in Retrograde it is a time to go back over things and reassess our lives. We should revise plans and personal goals perhaps, revisit anything that needs to be worked on, reconnect with loved ones, and business contacts, and redo just about anything if it helps, and usually, it does during this time. Refresh your life by doing things over again, and ask lots of questions. Otherwise, Mercury can be one giant headache for ya, especially if you try to push forward with brand-new plans, it just doesn’t usually work out so well. 

One of the best things you can do during any Mercury Retrograde cycle is to write things down, take notes, and do anything you can to remember, taking these simple actions can make this whole Mercury in Retrograde experience so much easier to get through and navigate. These little mistakes and going back and doing things over can lead to it being a time of growth and personal development. 

Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets, as is happening for a reason. This isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to appear to move backward in the future every year. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and take a break from our overloaded plugged-in lives. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycles energy takes hold is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.

Here’s a basic list of Do’s and Don’t that can help you get through this rather confusing time. Make sure to share this Blog with others so they can be enlightened and understand all about Mercury Retrograde time.


What Not To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:

– Don’t start brand new projects

– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks, and tense people or situations.

– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements

– Avoid Travel

– Do Not take misunderstandings personally. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.


What To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:

– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.

– Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.

– Re-visit anything that needs fixing or even if you have a question. 

– Re-connect with folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.

– Backup Computers and data that needs saved, it’s best to do this during the Shadow Phases.

– Re-organize your daily routines.

– Declutter

– Reflect and practice spiritual and energy work.

– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working in your life, especially in your intimate relationships.


With Mercury in Retrograde cycles, we just have to be prepared is all, and it’s important to remember during this particular Mercury in Rx phase to do whatever it takes to REMEMBER things. These cycles are not meant to be as aggravating as they seem to be. In a perfect world, if we were to just take some time off from our everyday routines, (like we have been forced to do with COVID going around) it would be a much easier time to navigate. However, if you choose to go against this cycle’s natural flow you will probably get stressed out by something. It is a time to pause and reflect, as this helps us gain new perspectives and maybe realize something we had missed before. This cycle gives us the opportunity to fix things and get them right or the way we want them. Get prepared and try to do something to keep your mind busy during this Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it can help you get through it must more quickly.

Have a safe and easy going Mercury in Retro time folks,

Venus is the Morning Star, Again?

On June 18th, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, and values rises once again as the “Morning Star” for the next 6 to 7 months. 

Venus was shining brightly in the sky, and then last fall she was barely visible around dusk time as the “Evening Star.” But now Venus is making a come back! Slowly she is becoming the “Morning Star”, and on June 18th we shall slowly see her goddess self as she sends positive vibes down to planet Earth. She now will appear where the Sun rises in the East, as the “Morning Star,” whereas before she had shown herself as the Evening Star where the Sun sets in the West. 

When Venus is in the role of “Morning Star”, her energy affects us differently. We can feel more masculine, (no matter your gender) aggressive, passionate, and dominant in our loving or intimate relationships, and also when dealing with our finances. During this cycle, we will stand up for what we believe in when it comes to love, money, and pleasure. 

Over the last few weeks, (end of May into June) as Venus made her transition from “Evening Star” to the “Morning Star” she went into hiding, and we have been without her potent loving vibes for a while now. Without this source of loving energy in our lives, many of you have been feeling unloved, abandoned, and not supported. We lost that connection to our hearts and look at all that has happened in the world. Granted this is not the only reason these global events have been happening, but if you think about all the chaos and hurt, resentment, and pain that has come up in her absence in the sky, it is very interesting. Being under the shadowy side of this energy, there has been much sadness, grief, and emotional pain. Now there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel! In just a few days, we will be able to see her once again shining brightly in the sky, and at first it will be a few hours before the Sun comes up. 

As the “Morning Star,” Venus works hard to help our relationships grow and repair themselves if at all possible. She slowly tries to put things back together again, but there will be challenges throughout the month of June. She has to get her energy out there and deal with all the Retrograde planets including her, as Venus is also in retrograde currently, and then there is Eclipse Season. Being visible as the “Morning Star”, she shows us that we cannot avoid the dark and must learn how to walk in the light again, we must embrace our darker or “Shadow” side of human existence, which we all are part of in one way or another. As we all carry around some sort of shadow or darker side as well. This is not something you get rid of but something you learn to manage and deal with. We must fully embrace all of who and what we are and are authentic-self must emerge. Just like Venus herself, we all fall into dark periods at different times in our lives but this doesn’t last forever, we must continue to handle these harder times because we have the strength to do so. 

Now that Venus has shifted we can see her influence over our personal lives, and global affairs and events. After June 25th, we can start to see our relationships slowly heal as folks start to get along a little bit better. Many of you will also see your financial affairs start to run better. There might actually be some peace in the world after all the violence and terrible events that have taken place since early June. As Venus is shining brightly again and her presence is known, she can send much love to Earth once again.

There is going to be some difficult paths we must follow to heal, but as her influence starts to spread out and grows stronger once again throughout June and especially into July time, we will start to see and feel it! If you have lost that loving feeling for others, and feel detached and separated in some way, Venus is going to be working extra hard once again at bringing those feelings back. 

As the “Morning Star”, Venus sends out strong messages that it’s time to shine our own personal light that we carry within out to the world. Venus in this position will slowly but surely start to raise our energy levels, it’s a great boost we need that can help us feel more confident and powerful, especially in love and concerning money or business. She wants us to honor the light we carry within so we can handle any obstacles or challenges that come our way. As she rises once again in the morning, look up to her and honor your most sacred and loving self! And remind yourself you are worth it, and that you are loved and you deserve to feel that way all the time for now on.

Here’s to peace, love, and happiness for all of you,

June Astro Update-PT 1

Rubys Astro Readings 🌟
First Part of June Astro Update
For All Zodiac Signs đź’«


There is so much going on in the world right now, I honestly didn’t have time to write all of June’s Astro Updates. But here is some info about the first half of the month, especially during the first week.
~Ruby


The first half of June 2020 can be a bit confusing, as underlying tensions seem to be coming out to be dealt with. Even though around the 3rd we could have some lovely things to say with the Sun/Venus Conjunction, a rather tense aspect when the Sun squares heated up Mars in Pisces can bring up and out the truth in our relationships, and that might not be so pretty. But at least we won’t have a problem being honest with each other.

The Sun conjuncts Venus from the 3rd to the 5th, and this might just be a welcome reprieve from all the hostility and anger of the past week. It won’t last too long folks due to the Full Moon energies and all the other cosmic connections underway. But we might just be able to find some light at the end of the tunnel, as our inner light gets to shine once again and take over the darkness. Use this time to find some inner peace within and hold onto that feeling, and hold onto that energy for as long as you possibly can!

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is also a Lunar Eclipse on the 5th, and this means it’s truth-telling time. So if you’ve got secrets you may want to come clean now before this energy hits. When the Full Moon gets into an intense square with both warlike Mars and delusional Neptune, our discussions may get too real, and our fantasies are called out for the illusions they are. It’s a time when mistakes are pointed out, and some folks may not be able to handle it. When Mercury forms a tense square to wounded healer Chiron at the same time self-doubt can kick in, and we can lose our confidence. During this time, it’s best to not believe everything you hear, read, or think. Depression may also set in, so make sure to keep communicating the way the Sun in Gemini intended, and talk to someone about your sadness.

From June 1st through the 10th, tensions will be high, especially when the Sun forms a tense square to Mars on June 6th. These influences are a test and we can be challenged by competitors and enemies. Basically, if things don’t calm down with the violence associated with the protests, a lot of people will feel like taking matters into their own hands and decide to come out and join the crowds, while hoping that things will calm back down. People are more than ready to take a stand now, but not allow their towns or businesses to be destroyed at the same time. The National Guard might just get called in, but only if it goes this far. The aspect coming together on June 6th will be felt during the first week of June and it is a build of angry energy. It could be from the lockdown due to the Virus, and the anger folks are carrying around from the events in Minneapolis last week. If you feel resentful or angry within yourself, try to do what you can peacefully, it’s ok to go to a March but don’t destroy property. Do not allow this rage to consume you. If we are not at ease within ourselves often the body will take on disease of some kind, so remember that.

As Mars transits through the sign of Pisces axnd the Sun in Gemini, there can be more lies, deceptions, and betrayal that comes out. Things are not what they seem and the media is not being completely honest on what they are reporting, go figure! There is a lot more happening behind the scenes with this crisis in the US. So there is more to the story! Life will not be peaceful during this time, so it’s important to find that space of peace within yourself during these times. There is a lot of emotional unrest with the planet of War, Mars being in the sign of Pisces the sign of healing over the next week.

On June 11th the Sun squares foggy Neptune, and motivated Mars is conjunct Neptune a few days later. This energy can make us feel like escaping from our normal routines, and doing something new or different. Otherwise, we can feel helpless and anxious. So don’t be discouraged if things don’t turn out exactly as you might have liked. Take a break and get away for a little while.

On June 18th, mental Mercury in Cancer (it has been slowing down and getting ready) as it goes into its Retrograde phase. So except for Mars, all the personal planets will appear to be moving backward through the Zodiac and be in their Retrograde phases. It is a good time to think about all that has happened over the last few months because my goodness has there been a lot! This is a time to go within yourselves and review all that you have been through and feeling. Work on healing yourselves and your hearts.

Plz Stay Safe & Be Well

A Full Moon & Eclipse Season Begins

For All Zodiac Signs 

Friday afternoon on June 5th, 2020 the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Sagittarius, at 15 degrees.


Full Moon Peak Times by Time Zone

3:12 PM EST
2:12 PM CST
1:12 PM MST

8:12 PM London


Full Moons are about relationships and a Lunar Eclipse pushes us to look more deeply at our needs, lacks, and wants. This help us balance the Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun in Gemini energies. Sagittarius represents the higher mind, and Gemini the lower mind. Sagittarius energy is all about the adventure and thirst for knowledge, and ideas that help us expand our minds, as it teaches us to listen more to our intuition and to think in a bigger and broader way. Gemini energy is more interested in the here and now, and can help us to feel more comfortable with where we are in the present moment, in our own community and neighborhood. This Sagittarius energy wants us to explore and go beyond our normal boundaries.

Striking a balance between these Sun and Moon energies can be quite helpful during the Full Moon cycle. The Lunar Eclipse is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. With these energies building up inside of us, now is the time when the Cosmos is pushing for us to let out our emotions. Later on, once this all is done, we will understand more, but for now, it can be extremely difficult to just not express our feelings, as they need to be let out.

There can be an inner crisis of consciousness, and a moment where we suddenly are made aware of a part of our lives we just have not been happy with. This influence allows us to explore what we need emotionally. This can be quite a challenging time for relationships, as they are either broken down or made even stronger. Whatever happens, we can feel quite emotionally charged up so this can lead to some Full Moon drama! Full Moon’s are a time of truth, and we can experience some sort of Ah-Ha moment, or epiphany and suddenly be made aware of something, often this about what is lacking in our lives. This knowingness or understanding can help to motivate us to take some positive actions, although the path getting there can be chaotic.

The Moon is involved in several challenging connections during its Full Moon phase. Like a tense square to fiery Mars in Aries, so our anger and passion can be fueled by this energy, and if we get emotional we can get quite upset.

The Moon is also opposite the planet of love & values, Venus in its Retrograde phase and Gemini. This can be a challenging time for couples and relationships, starting June 3rd through June 7th. Lessons are being handed out to even the strongest of relationships. It’s a time of patience with both lovers and friends. So if you are already committed to any relationship, be it personal or professional and you’ve already been having problems, this Eclipse can cause sole problems. Now for some folks, it can potentially end a relationship, usually, it’s the ones that need to be done in the first place.

On a global level anger can escalate quite quickly, and we can experience feeling angry and even sort of sad. There can be higher rates of crime and violence during this time. The weather can get rather pumped up as well, because whenever there’s is a lot of frustration among the masses, usually, the weather starts to get destructive! So there might be bad storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and even earthquakes. The Eclipse influence brings up these angry feelings to the forefront, especially if we’ve been sitting with these feelings and just brewing for a while.

If you notice you are on the edge of losing your cool, find a healthy way to release that energy! We still are going to be under the Full Moon influence, which is a time to let go and release the feelings and things that are no longer working. Also, you can do some things to help keep you calm, by shifting your focus to things like exercise, meditation, and energy healing work like Reiki, and most importantly self-care. It’s all too easy to lose our tempers with a loved one, or we may end up having to deal with someone else who’s upset and take on their energy! If you’re out and about just remember people are already on edge. But through Astrology, you know, and that is a powerful thing, my friends. Just by understanding what’s is happening and why can make such a huge difference in how you handle and work through this energy because you already know.



Love Can Be Strange

The Lunar eclipse also opposes lovely Venus. Pay attention folks, Venus is in Retrograde currently, so you should be careful whom you get romantically involved with if you are single.you can end up lowering your standards if you get too lonely and get involved with someone who’s toxic and not a true soul mate, but a life lesson instead!

Also, Venus in Retrograde often brings back old friends and lovers, this is to work some sort of Karma out usually, so you both can have closure. This doesn’t mean because an ex-lover shows up that you are destined to be together, usually, it’s quite the opposite. But a very soulful meeting can happen, and some of you might find a soul mate as well. Be extra careful and commit to nothing until after Venus and Mercury are out of Retrograde.

The Cosmic lovers, Venus & Mars are also in a tense position together. During the Eclipse this can amp up conflicts, anger, and impulsive behavior! Women are more susceptible to losing their cool and getting irritated than the men right now.

During the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, we need to try to make some extra time and effort to promote peace and harmony no matter what we are doing. But that good feeling energy out there, filled with love and compassion. Being patient can be quite important, as it helps stop frustrations from growing out of control.

Focus on one task at a time, and concentrate all your energies on it, rather than falling into the heavier energies of the Eclipse as it can take up most of your time and energy. Staying busy doing tasks will help you work through your frustrations, which makes it a good time to organize your life, declutter, and make space so that better energies can come into your life.


All about Eclipse Season

During an Eclipse Season, there are two or three Eclipses, and it lasts for around 36 days. During this time the Full Moon’s are part of the Lunar Eclipse and the New Moon is part of a Solar Eclipse. This Eclipse Season starts on June 1st and ends on July 8th. These energies will be felt most during this time. There are three Eclipses this time around,

June 5th – Full Moon in Sagittarius – Lunar Eclipse

June 21st – New Moon in Cancer – Solar Eclipse

July 5th Full – Moon in Capricorn Lunar Eclipse


If you happen to have a Birthday fall during or around the Eclipses, this next year can be full of interesting twists and turns and full of exciting changes. Eclipse Seasons are always full of strange energy, as out of the ordinary experiences just seem to happen and often there are some shocking surprises along the way as well. But remember good surprises occur as well. These influences can put us on a path we have no choice but to go down, but these are strong lessons we must learn to grow from. And usually, they are a necessity to help us become whom we are meant to be. Eclipses are interesting as they don’t seem to have any rhyme or reason to them, some folks can experience life-changing events while others experience nothing different or out of the ordinary. This is not about luck or curses, it because each of us has our own unique experiences on this journey through life, and the energies of the Eclipses are going to affect us the way they were destined to.

Eclipse Season is usually unpredictable, this energy can bring us to our breaking point as the pressure builds. We may have strong reactions that we didn’t even see coming or expect, so stay mindful of how you are reacting, and sometimes no reaction is the best statement you can make. Many of you will experience some sort of random Ah-Ha moment. Often both situations are happening all at once. Eclipses are intense and often they put us through some seriously challenging lessons that usually would take a much longer time to go through, so we are being thrown into the pressure cooker and expected to rise above any challenges we face. Things like relationships that you might have thought were going to work out, suddenly end fast, or a project you have been working on for a very long time that was about to take off suddenly has issues, and is held back now to get something fixed. The bottom line is even if we feel like we have everything all worked out, this Eclipse energy can leave us feeling chaotic and out of control if we let it.

However, don’t worry and fear this upcoming Eclipse Season, because the change that is being thrust upon us needs to happen for a reason, so it will in one way or another. Destiny is taking a hand and fate is in control. Even though this first Eclipse Season of the summer can be challenging at times, it also can bring in some much-needed positive changes, especially after it’s over it occurs.

Have a Blessed Full Moon

Gemini Season for All the Signs!

Rubys Readings

Sun in Gemini – A time of movement!

For All Zodiac Signs 

The Sun shifted into communicative Gemini on May 20th, 2020, and transits this sign through June 21st.

This influence usually brings about change and some disruption. One thing is for sure, we can struggle with feeling restless, nervous, or anxiety-ridden. The best thing you can do for that is to stay mentally and physically active! This is a chatty, communicative kind of energy, so lots of interesting conversations seem to occur during this time. But there’s is another side to Gemini’s twining energy that can have us feeling more withdrawn and reflective, so we can enjoy our alone time as well. 

The sign of Gemini rules over things like friendship, and with Venus the Goddess of Love, also in Gemini and in Retrograde currently, we might meet up with certain people who have inspired us to be more romantic, beautiful, and artistic in the past. Allow these muses to help you move forward, but don’t get lost in your feelings, as the fantasy will eventually break and reality will come back in once Venus is out of Retrograde. 

This highly stimulating energy can have our heads spinning with quick and fleeting thoughts. But since we thoroughly enjoy communicating during this time, and sharing ideas and opinions, we may reach out to others more so than usual. It’s a time to network and mingle, but remember social distancing. Our minds are moving quicker than usual, as our thoughts jump from one subject and task to the next. So stick to activities during this cycle that involves communicating like emails, paperwork, messaging or phone calls. It’s great energy for multi-tasking. 

The shadowy side of this Gemini energy is we can be more easily distracted, and it can be more difficult to focus, so we can be unreliable without meaning to be. We may have to keep redirecting ourselves or others if we want to get things accomplished. We can be very hard working especially mentally, so we can burn out fast. Try to take breaks when you can and remember you can’t get it all done at once. Make lists, use Alexa or Google Home to set reminders, you’re going to need this help, as this can be an extremely busy Gemini Season, even more so than usual. 

Mercury and Venus In Gemini – The reason why this is an incredibly busy Gemini Season, is because not only is the Sun in Gemini but so is relationship-ruled Venus and soon cerebral Mercury! This is our core-self, ego, heart, and mind all wrapped up in the Gemini energy. We can be sidetracked and scattered, as we readbetween the lines and feel the energies all around us. 

Mercury rules our way of thinking, so our thoughts will move just that much more quickly over the next three and a half weeks. Under these influences doors of opportunity may swing wide open, but also they can slam shut! Problems can be easier to figure out because our empathy for others is so strong, and our psychic hunches are on point! Sincecommunicating is usually so much stronger during this cycle there will be a lot of information shared, so just don’t tell everyone all your business. Knowledge and diversity are more important at this time, and we can feel more sociable, intellectual, and curious under these influences. But our energies can scatter as a direct result of our curiosity and awareness. Being more communicative, and open to having conversations can lead to opportunities that we normally wouldn’t get a chance to discover. 

If you feel overwhelmed by these energies your moods can change suddenly, and go up and down. Even if we feel good and are active, as we are still prone to nervousness and excitability. This can lead to feeling more frustrated, so we can blow up in anger quite quickly! And with Mars moving into Aries soon in June, (the planet that rules our motivation levels, passion, and anger) we can get riled up fast, so take some time to get calm if you get frustrated over something. 

It’s a good time for 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 now, as it can be important or valuable down the road. It’s also important to take breaks and get physical activity. This can help our minds relax, so we can get rest. A lot of folks suffer from insomnia and have issues with vivid dreams, both awake and asleep under such strong Gemini energy. Be social and look for different and interesting people to hang with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles.

Mental Slowdown – Mercury in Taurus

Mental Slowdown 

Mental Mercury enters the sign of Taurus today, it stays there through May 11th.

This energy tends to slow our minds way down, especially with it also being Taurus Season (the Sun in Taurus.) So things aren’t going to be moving as quickly as they have been, and we can feel somewhat stuck. Especially with the ongoing virus situation.

We tend to be more down to earth, stable, and grounded with Mercury in Taurus, and our common sense is stronger, but our fantasies may be put on hold for the time being. We can come off more deliberate, and sometimes harsh under this influence, but it can be easier to communicate our emotions.

We will stick to what’s worked for us in the past, and who’s been tried and true, as our tribe means everything during this time. And we can be stubborn about using new solutions to solve problems, so trying new things isn’t so easy. Our focus is stronger as we can pay attention to one thing at a time, which can help make life more simple in these complicated times.

Be mindful of being overly strict or conservative. Don’t get too stubborn with your thoughts and opinions, and allow others to share how they are feeling during this cycle. 

Be Well
