“NEW MOON/SOLAR ECLIPSE”
August 21st, 2017

The New Moon in Leo comes together Monday, August 21st, 2017 which is also a rare Solar Eclipse! The most anticipated and debated astrological event of the Summer is finally upon us.

New Moon Times:
Central: 1:30pm
Eastern: 2.30pm
Mountain: 12:30pm
Pacific: 11:30pm
A NEW MOON represents a New Cycle that the cosmos brings into help us create new beginnings. This also happens to be the day of the “Great American Solar Eclipse”, so let’s just get the facts straight:

NEW MOONS ARE ALSO CALLED “DARK MOONS,” because they give off the lowest light during a calendar month.

NEW MOONS are when the SUN is Conjunct the MOON. A new moon is a moment when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction, meaning that the Sun and Earth are on the opposite sides of the Moon.

– This NEW MOON is in the sign of Leo astrological this time around.

– On Monday, Aug. 21st the sky will go dark for a short period of time due to the SOLAR ECLIPSE!

– A SOLAR ECLIPSE, as viewed from Earth, occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, fully or partially from the Sun.

– A SOLAR ECLIPSE typically only happens with a NEW MOON, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction.

– In partial and annular Eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured; during a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon, the Eclipse on August 21, 2017, is a Total one.

 

This New Moon cycle is the second of two New Moon’s both in Leo in a month. This Solar Eclipse marks the grand finale to this tumultuous “Eclipse Season” and a blazing new beginning on a personal and collective level. Leo is the most dramatic or more like theatrical and radiant sign of the Zodiac signs.

July’s New Moon in Leo was connected strongly to fiery Mars also in Leo, and that fiery energy was the booster to set this energy into motion.

However, the August New Moon’s energy feels more solid, stubborn, resolute, and uncompromising so there won’t be any hesitation, doubt, or resistance allowed at this time!

This New Moon brings with it a mysterious dark shadow that is cast on Earth, due to the “Total Solar Eclipse” also occurring, and this can be a positive influence that helps brings out our intuitive nature, therefore dreams and visions have been quite strong. But it asks us to embrace our weaknesses, and tap into our inner confidence and strength.

The Eclipse is also making a connection to the fixed star “Regulus” the “Heart of the Lion”, so how perfectly fitting for a New Moon in “Leo”. This Star is known as the “little king” and is often associated with royalty and authority, and is believed to be, “the stars, star!”, because of how strongly it affects folks who are in the public eye lives, like movie stars and entertainers.

Regulus adds some serious juice to this rare. cosmic event. Its energy demands nothing less than loyalty and integrity from us, and intense devotion and passion, that only can match this stars warmth, generosity, and brilliance.

*After all, the point of an Eclipse is it helps us accelerate our growth, and it pushes us past our comfort zones, hence why so many of you are feeling anxiety-ridden one minute and completely exhausted the next! This process does move along easier if we move with the energy and give up any resistance to it!*


Astrologically speaking, it doesn’t matter where the shadow of this Eclipse touches our corner of the world, this is a strong energetic gateway that we all are about to walk through, and it creates evolutionary changes within all of us!During this New Moon in Leo, our focus should be on building up our self-confidence by discovering our own paths as individuals. So ask yourself what you want in your life for you, not for your kids or a partner, but just for yourself. This energy also asks us to learn what our special gifts and talents are, and what creative skills we possess. This energy is also about us making a conscious effort to work with others in a more personal way, where we are involved and loving, so working straight from our hearts.

We might enjoy recommitting to an existing romance, hobby, or project that we felt passionate about before. It’s also a good for adding some “play” or leisure time to our lives. Under this potent Leo energy, we have a fighting chance to make amazing changes in our lives and to move forward and progress. For some of us, our circumstances have already demanded we pay more attention to these matters.

The Eclipse is showing us what isn’t working in our lives right now, so we can redo or start something all over again. Something is ending so a new beginning can start!

There are major developments in whatever personal area that’s ruled by Leo in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart, this will occur over the next 3-6 months. However, not everyone gets or feels the same effect from the Eclipse, and certainly not the same intensity. Those folks that have personal planets being activated by the degree of the Eclipse will feel its effects on a very deep personal level. If you want to know more about what area of your life this New Moon/Eclipse is affecting, please get with me to purchase a MINI ECLIPSE READING. And I will do the research and send you a detailed report.

During this NEW MOON, we should commit some time to set some personal goals that we would like to achieve in our life. Our focus should be on all the traits of Leo, (yes no matter your Sun Sign, we all have Leo in our personal Astrology Charts) This helps you learn how to work with this energy and create something new and improved. This NEW MOON brings in a fresh, creative energy into our lives, and even more importantly through our hearts.

This NEW MOON’S lessons are around learning how to be more gracious while negotiating how to keep peace and restore harmony, this is going to be extra important and challenging. But this is how we can have more successful relationships and grow from the process.

Happy Blessed NEW MOON

Setting Intentions with the New Moon

“Setting Intentions with the New Moon” By Rubys Readings

There’s a New Moon occurring Sunday morning, which makes this the best time to set some powerful intentions around your future goals with the Universe and work a little Magic!

“A New Moon occurs Sunday morning so starting Saturday evening through Tuesday early morning is the Best Time to Set Intentions or Make Out Wish Lists!”

*The New Moon comes exact on July 23rd, 2017, at 5:46 AM EST or 4:46 AM CST, this New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon meet both in the Sign of  LEO and are in conjunct”
*We have all the way through Tuesday early morning around 5:23 AM EST and 4:23 AM CST to SET 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 and work on manifesting what energy we want to come in next. What I mean by that is we can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, love…it doesn’t really matter, but we have to do some things to make it really happen. And no not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But at least by “Setting 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.

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 beginnings when you can recharge goals or set new ones. During the New Moon, we often experience an “energy shift.”

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

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

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

3. Do something today to demonstrate your commitment to your intention.

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, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that leads you towards 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, but we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for… and sometimes magic just happens.

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 New Moon work in. You’ll simply be calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some sage or Incense and clear the energies. close your eyes and breathe deeply … and call upon your guides, Angels, or higher power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill it up with the energy of love and light. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it.

Step Two: Set the atmosphere

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

Step Three: Setting Intentions

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to do all this work at 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.

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.

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about … for example; ask 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, and what do you want to create? Think about your long-term goals and future and what you’d like that to look like over the next month. Be careful about focusing on the how, why, and when of your goals, focus more on what it is you’re wanting and how you want to feel. Let the Universe take care of the rest.

Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, so in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest (not your pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Just don’t think it, 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 30 days, and then allow the New Moon to light up those paths that you are supposed to be going down, so you may bring in what you truly desire, and let go of what you don’t want, it’s not serving your higher good and it’s blocking you from your desires.

New Moon Thursday!

Setting Intentions under the New Moon

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 the 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 higher-self. 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, God, Source, Guides, Angels, etc.) and ask for the New Moon to open up a path towards your deepest desires, ask to be led to your manifestations. Plant seeds of intentions with your mind and heart. In the simplest of terms, write your wishes down!
Some of you might be asking how does one Set Intentions under the New Moon?
First, you should set the mood, create the energy…so light some candles, burn some incense or sage, and 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 are you trying to bring into your life?
As your doing a ritual and setting your intentions, here’s some helpful questions you can think about…for example, what are you choosing or what changes would you 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 right now, what kind of energy do you want to create in your life during this New Moon?
Next, you’re going to Visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take some nice long deep breaths, now enter into your heart (the space you feel the 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 that great Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Or keep it simple see that goal being met, see yourself feeling joyful and happy! 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 your 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 those seeds you have planted to grow, just like you would wait on a flower to sprout from a seedling and remember when a plant grows it needs sunlight. This is also true for us as we get our ideas together and make our visions known, it takes some time for our wishes or desires to surface into reality. The dark of the Moon or New Moon, is like the earth when you plant a flower it is dark, but once you ask for your dreams to come in…you are putting your Light on it and that is what it takes for it to grow, just like the Sun makes a flower grow, add some emotions to it and really feel what you are asking for and there is the water a flower would need to grow, see it’s all so symbolic for what we really are doing here.
Last but not least, you should work on being grateful what you already have on this planet, right in the here and now! Tell the Universe thank you and believe me once you start saying or writing down what you are grateful for, it won’t stop it will just keep coming to you. Gratitude is so popular because it works…it’s the key to manifestation.
If you would like to know just how this particular New Moon is affecting you, you can purchase a “One Question” Reading with me and I will do the research for you, just ask me, “What is the May New Moon mean for me?”

Last Week of March – Astro “Weekly”

Weekly Update

“Last Week of March”

Today we get an extra boost from the cosmos as the asteroid “Pallas Athena” moves into the sign of Aries to join 4 other planets that are already in this fiery sign. This goddess gives us some gifts with this influence, and that is some inspiration and drive to follow our dreams and fulfill our destiny! You might start to feel excited or inspired to get out and do something different, and your heart may be full once again as your hope is restored.

Intense Relations:
But the big Astrological news of the week is the powerful Jupiter-Pluto Square finally comes together on Thursday, as this energy has been with us all week long and for some folks even over the last two weeks and it’s been rough stuff! This aspect spans nine months and hit us for the first time just last November of 2016, it will complete its series and impact this August.

With Jupiter and Pluto connecting under this harsh energy, you’ll find folks are on a major “POWER TRIP” all over the place, and anyone with a big “ego” might try to push their opinions off on you. So you might have already run into people who want to manipulate, bully, or stir the pot so to speak, as this influence peaks on Thursday. I am putting a Severe Cosmos-Storm Warning out for this sucker folks as it finally blows through one last time today, and then not again until next August. This influence has been affecting us pretty strongly and has pushed and pulled on us to make big changes in our lives. It has certainly been a week folks, so just a heads up to stay out of trouble and harm’s way because this energy is no joke and still might not be entirely done just yet.

Mercury slows down:
On Friday, Mercury moves into slowed-down and more grounding Taurus and you can be a little more logical hopefully and reasonable with your thoughts, ideas, and plans once again. Since we have been under the influence of Mercury in Aries over the last 3 and half weeks and we have been pushing to get our stuff done, are aggression levels have been on high alert! Hopefully, with this shift, we will feel a bit more relaxed and can think straight before getting upset or angry, unless provoked of course as Taurus is the sign of the bull and we can be very stubborn while under this influence and even quite emotional. But at least our thinking slows down.

Relationships & Money:
Also, Venus is still in its Retrograde cycle, so, therefore, it moves back into sensitive Pisces starting this Sunday, and with Neptune involved, secrets can suddenly be revealed and truths exposed. You might experience seeing someone for who they truly are, or someone trying to hide from you, a situation that isn’t too clear about a past, or present relationship.

As Neptune just won’t seem to stop this week, it too joins up with larger than life Jupiter this weekend, but this is a more harmonious connection so this can help us feel inspired and enlightened in some way. Our souls seem to line up with the will of the Universe more so, and this brings on spiritual awareness and those wonderful Ah-Ha moments we so look forward to having! Destiny is knocking folks, right at your door! So get with this energy and work with it and your spiritual path will open.

Weekend Update:
If you don’t understand or know exactly how to get on a path that fulfills your soul destiny, then the best thing you can do for yourself is to have a session with me, contact me here on Facebook or email me at healingruby@yahoo.com and I will help you figure out exactly what path you should be heading down and how to connect to your soul and spiritual path better.

So if you can make the time to do something that enhances your spirituality this weekend, then I highly suggest you get to it! You will more than likely get the answers you so desperately seek.

So old relationships can be cleared out now to make way for new ones.
It is so important to SET INTENTIONS with this particular New Moon phase as it is so close to the magical Spring Equinox, that just came together this week. This is potent energy to be manifesting, wishing, and creating in, with the Sun and Moon working in harmony towards the same purpose and goals. Especially with 5 planets all in Aries, this is all about starting something new and so is the New Moon, so your focus no matter what should be on creating new beginnings.

Other Astrology News
This week secrets will be revealed. So listen to what is not said, read between the lines and pay attention to your intuitive hits now. Also, it is a good time to snoop around, but just make sure you are ready to hear the truth because it will be found out in this energy.
This weekend the Sun and Venus are making a lovely connection and this makes for a beautiful weekend indeed, where people are in a great mood, so get out there and socialize, whatever you do be out and about somehow.
Sunday, mental Mercury conjuncts Uranus and it’s a fantastic day to get PSYCHIC READING or to tap into your inner guide or voice, but be warned getting sleep Sunday night can be difficult as you may toss and turn a lot with those wild dreams, they are trying to tell you something, so what’s the message? Write it down folks and look up those meanings, you might get some pretty important clues now.
Monday is New Moon Day and Mars and Neptune make a wonderful connection to each other, this is all about manifesting baby! That’s right it’s a perfect day for a New Moon and to ask the Universe to co-create with you whatever it is you would like to have happened next or what energy you would like to bring in. Just make sure to stay focused on what has the most potential to work out at this point in your life. A Mini New Moon Report can help you with that.
Starting next week there’s some serious more tense energy coming in, so starting probably around later Tuesday this energy will slowly creep in when larger than life Jupiter makes a tense square to very potent and powerful Pluto, as this comes together on Thursday, March 30th! What happened to you back in 2010? You should think about it because this aspect brings some disruption and makes a comeback in some way, and it might not be pretty for some folks. You may even have to deal with the same similar issues that happened about 6 to 7 years ago, but if something shows up or someone just know it’s to heal folks, it’s always about the lessons.

Mercury in Aries

Astro Readings by Ruby
“Talking Out Loud”

Mercury in Aries

Mercury is the planet that rules communication, expression, and our thinking process, and it is shifting gears today as it moves into quick thinking Aries, where it will stay until March 31st. Decisions can be made very quickly in this very fast paced, impulsive energy. Aries teaches all of us no matter your Sun Sign that we can lead and are quick to work on any new ideas or projects we might have. So our thoughts and ideas can be pioneering, as we come up with new things to do and say and we want to be first to know things!

Our way of thinking is quick and spontaneous, and so is the way we talk and communicate. We tend to speak directly in this energy, as we can be more bold and assertive with Mercury in Aries. We don’t have the patience for mulling over ideas, as the decisions we do make now are often driven by our need for instant gratification! We can be more quick, direct, and candid in our conversations, and some folks might think we even sound crude at times. This is a more aggressive kind of energy, especially if you come across other folks who oppose or argue about your opinions or ideas. And you might think they will just accept your opinions at first, but when you realize they don’t you can feel frustrated and angry. We’re more sensitive and defensive under this influence because we are attached to our ideas. So think before you speak or make that Facebook post! Ha!

Details can become an issue because even though we will pay extra close attention to them if we really need to focus, but we are moving so much more quickly under the Mercury in Aries energy that we refuse to listen to others more often and immediately dismiss what we think is irrelevant. Only to discover later we missed important or prudent information. But our charm and style can get us through.

When we express ourselves we can be much more straightforward, and even if you’re normally shy you might just tell someone exactly what you think during this cycle! Those of you who already express themselves out loud should try to rein it in and be careful to not go all wild and crazy or you can lose friendships or hurt someone you care for.

This is a great time to start something new because we aren’t attached to worn-out, older, outdated ideas, and generally speaking we adopt a different more fiery, enthusiastic kind of attitude. New projects and ideas are taken head on now with strong enthusiasm. It’s all too easy to have our hands in many different pots, as we start new projects and jump around to each of them before finishing. We can always feel or seem busy under Mercury in Aries. We might be on one path mentally towards a goal to suddenly change our mind or opinions, especially if something sounds more appealing, new, or exciting.

 If anyone expresses some sort of criticism or negative feedback we can take it extremely personal now. But we are not afraid of a challenge or fight if the need arises, especially if it’s a mental showdown. We can be more intelligent but also more idealistic, and if we get excited about something we can promote it strongly because we are full of energy and are highly motivated now. But overall we are more fun and enthusiastic, which can be highly infectious.

With the Sun currently in Pisces through March 20th, you may wonder why folks seem agitated or frustrated, as we can come off as harsh and impatient. Because decisions are made so quickly, you may not understand why others sort of stay on the fence around your ideas, and don’t work with you as easily. So it’s a good time to keep working on communication and playing fair and try to be patient.

Rubys Weekly Update

“The Week Ahead”

The week ahead starts off with expressive Mercury switching signs, moving into the sign of Aquarius on Feb. 7th. Mercury rules over how we think, process, and express our thoughts. This brings out unique concepts and inspired thinking, and certainly new insights around how we think. Our minds become highly stimulated, so folks can get nosey and curious. Social media will be hopping this week and so will dating sites. Make sure and be careful about what you post online this week because there are more eyes than usual paying attention, so you don’t want someone checking out your Facebook page and seeing things that are private (maybe go over your privacy settings) like a new boss, new lover, or your mother.

The “Big Astrological” event is on February 10th when the Full Moon (Lunar) Eclipse lights up the sky and our lives. This energy can create luck and blessings for all of us. Messages concerning your personal soul path or journey are coming soon, and there will be major turning points. It’s important to pay attention to your surroundings, and all that you hear, see, and feel. You might be able to understand better to the messages the Universe is trying to convey to you. 

 

This Saturday lucky Jupiter is making a trine to the powerful Sun, this is a great favorable energy that should provide a beautiful weekend for many of you! This will be some of the best energy we get to experience for the rest of February, (as the end of the month is going to be quite challenging for many of you) so please do something, anything that’s proactive to bring this luck to you! 

Valentine’s Day

So let’s talk about the upcoming holiday. On Valentine’s Day the Moon will be in more social yet relaxed Libra, which rules over our love life and partnerships anyway, and this is helpful since our focus will be in the right place. But warlike Mars will also be influential that day, which may cause tension for some of you. So don’t allow little things to throw you off, for example if your significant other buys you the wrong gift or takes you out to a different restaurant than your favorite. Allow this day to unfold naturally and let it just be what it is supposed to be, not the preconceived notion you have of what it should be. Be grateful that someone lives you enough to try. Don’t allow high expectations to ruin your good time. If you try to control the situation you can end up ruining all the fun and end up feeling let. down. Not exactly the ideal way to spend celebrating the day of love. Often just being together and enjoying the simple things in life is really all we need.
