Mercury in Retrograde

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive



by Rubys Readings



Have you noticed your electronics breaking down or glitching out? Are you struggling with misunderstandings or having communication issues with people? Has your Wifi, computer, smartphone, and anything associated with technology been acting strangely? Are you forgetting words and sentences? Are emails and messages online randomly glitching out or disappearing altogether? Then there’s a very good chance you have been experiencing the side effects of “Mercury in Retrograde.”

Mercury is the plant that governs over communication, travel, how we express ourselves, how we talk to others and ourselves, and our thought process, and often electronics due to being part of communication get caught up in there somewhere. When Mercury is in its Retro cycle or appears to be moving backward, things can go a little haywire here on planet Earth from its influence.

Throughout this post, I will be referring to Mercury in Retrograde as Mercury Rx. Rx is the actual symbol used in Astrology for “Retrograde,” and it helps me shorten this down a bit.

I have been writing about what not to do during a Mercury in Rx cycle for many years now. And even though I believe strongly in the advice I give, especially about how we shouldn’t be signing contracts or starting new jobs or relationships, or going on any long distance trips, it just seems to get to a point where I’m constantly telling only the negative side of things of this aspect, which really is a drag. And then it feels like the Cosmos really has no other point of having the planets go backward or Retrograde but to simply annoy us! Which isn’t how it works.

So here are some facts about a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each Mercury in Rx cycle lasts for 3 weeks, and that’s not including its “Shadow Phases”, which are before and after a Mercury in Rx cycle. Each shadow phase lasts for three weeks as well, and they usually occur two times a year but sometimes even up to three times. So that makes each Mercury in Rx cycle a nearly two-month event, but mind you not everyone feels this fully during the whole cycle. Some people feel it more before, some folks have a harder time during, and a rare few more after the actual Retrograde cycle occurs and more so during the after Shadow phase. Everyone is different.

Being born during a Mercury in Rx cycle myself, I fully understand its effects on a deep level and just what really happens during its cycle. I’ve had my fair share of intimate Mercury Rx moments over the years, and I could go on and on! In some ways, I live in this electronic glitchy world full of misunderstandings and little mishaps all the time! Yes, heavy sigh, it’s frustrating but what can one do but learn from it. Therefore, I am pretty use to it, but still thoroughly annoyed by it! LOL.

But with all of that being said, I have also learned that “Energy Follows Thought” bottom line! No matter what the Cosmos is doing, I have proven to myself time and time again that if you focus on what it is you really want, you can ride the waves of any negative Astrological influence and come out of it with something more positive. Not to say that if you make a list of what not to do during Mercury in Rx that you won’t have issues, because whatever part of your Astrology “Birth Chart” Mercury Rx is transiting is the part of your life it will affect the most, and with this particular aspect there’s not a lot you can do to get around it, but I am here to guide you and try to help to the best of my ability.

Since I became aware of Mercury and it’s Retrograde cycles at a very young age, I have learned a great deal about how to align my energy better with the Cosmos, to seek and find balance. So I thought I would shed some light on how one can be productive during a Mercury in Rx cycle. So instead of explaining what NOT to do during this time, let’s focus on the progress we can make instead.



Astrologers are constantly explaining how during this cycle, communication is broken down, well that made me think about when something or someone is broken down it can be an opportunity to rebuild the energy back up again, and to align better with our soul path in life. Which means perhaps all the things glitching out or not working during this time, or the misunderstandings that seem to come along with Mercury in Rx, are being brought to us for a reason. Perhaps for a higher purpose, maybe to help us understand something we otherwise may not have noticed, and to bring us clarity! But you may be scratching your head and thinking with everything breaking down like computers or our Wifi, how do these random annoyances have any meaning or substance spiritually? The answer is simple, Mercury is telling you to UNPLUG and take a break, the Cosmos, the Universe is giving us a big time out! It’s time to get quiet and stop the constant chatter, get away from the constant movement and stimulus that plagues our lives nowadays. Listen to your higher-self and your spirit! And no it’s not conducive to be unplugged and miss work, or run away from the world everytime Mercury goes into Rx, I get it! But it does mean you can take a Vacation for even a day or two, and simply unplug from the outside noise. If that’s just impossible to do during this time than take just 30 mins a day during Mercury in Rx and really every day and unplug, and go meditate and recharge your own personal batteries. This is a time to find ways to turn your mind off, no more worrying or thinking constantly.

Sometimes we have to start over to achieve our goals, and during a Mercury Rx cycle, it should be the rule of thumb! It’s important to not get bent all out of shape and frustrated, and realize this is a time to re-work, re-do, re-learn, and do re-search. Don’t feel bad, trust me I can sympathize as I have already mentioned, I was born during a Mercury in Rx cycle and I have learned throughout the years once I do something, to do it again, so every time I listen and redo things the issues or situations I am involved in often seem to work out for the better. Just ask my second husband! Yes, I had to even redo marriage! But that’s the extreme example. The bottom line is it can be very frustrating for those folks who aren’t used to it. Taking the time to redo everything all the time frankly can be exhausting, but take my advice, as during a Mercury in Rx cycle it’s the best thing you can do for yourself!

Even the planet Mercury itself is going back through a part of your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart” right now, and a certain sign of the Zodiac as well, and therefore it’s backtracking to help you learn and understand something you’ve probably already have done or been through before. You have to take steps back during Mercury in Rx to move forward.



Here is a list to help remind you just what you can do that actually works during Mercury in Rx. Good Luck And Happy Mercury in Retrograde


How to be Productive during Mercury in Retrograde:


REWORK SCHEDULES: Take a look at your schedule and ask: What’s working or not? Be flexible during this phase, and just know you may have to change your game plan. Think about letting go of any responsibilities that aren’t yours or that aren’t working for you. It’s a time for cutbacks.

DECLUTTER: It’s a great time to get organized and get rid of stuff, and so many of you need to clear out old junk anyway! During a Mercury Rx cycle is the best time to get into your closet, basement, shed, or attic and rid of what you don’t use anymore. I mean go through everything, even old junk drawers and make sure and recycle. Remember when you get rid of old stuff, you are getting rid of the old energy as well that’s attached to it, and you are making room for new fresh energy to come in, which can bring in new beginnings, wealth, prosperity, and better health and overall Karma. Let’s not forget it’s a great time to dump Karmic debt as well. Also, remember your intellectual property as well, as it’s called nowadays, so anything to do with your online stuff, and smartphones and computers, try organizing and getting rid of old files, this will help you tremendously.

REVISIT: If there’s any friends or family that you haven’t contacted in a long time for whatever reason, now is the time to make amends and open your heart up to healing. Working on these relationships can help heal old emotional wounds, which is beneficial to your spiritual evolution. Catch up with old friends, go have coffee or meet up for dinner. Just make sure the people you choose to revisit are not dysfunctional or abusive, as that seems to be a reoccurring theme during Mercury in Rx, to help remind you of how you felt in some way so you can heal it.

SELF-CARE: It’s important to take care of yourself during this cycle, so working on self-care can be very helpful. Take it easy and make sure to eat right, exercise and move around more. Spend less time being plugged into the net or social media if at all possible. Start some sort of new routine that benefits you and your well-being.

CHANGE THE ENERGY: It’s time to change the energies up in your life! This is a time to clear space and energy, so add some nice candles to your home to help burn off old energies and invite new energy in. Put some color in your home or office and redecorate with pictures that make you feel good. Add fresh flowers and burn some incense. Bless and release the old energy that’s been in your home or office, and bring in a higher vibrational energy. There are many different ways to go about this. Just try it, and get creative and you’ll see and feel the difference.

BE FLEXIBLE: This is very important, so I am going to repeat it again, allow the energies to flow around you and stop trying to control everything!! Perhaps write a letter and let the Universe know what you’re trying to create in your life, and then sit back and relax. Just follow what feels natural and don’t fight, argue, or push others even if you feel totally frustrated.

REINVENT: Take some time to think about your past successes and bring new light to them, enjoy what you have created in your life, instead of trying to constantly manifest something new and different. Make sure to reuse what’s in your home and repurpose whatever you can, perhaps some DIY projects should be on the agenda during this period.

REWORK AND REDO: Work on any projects that you have already started and never finished. Work on anything you feel passionate about, but this time finish them to completion and enjoy the work you are doing. If there’s something you just couldn’t get done or finish, now is the time to redo it and fix it! Mercury in Rx cycles really does help us finish up old business.

ORGANIZE: Do you have 3000 pics on your phone or computer just hanging around? Well, this is a great time to organize your life. I like to organize my emails, pictures, and just anything on my computer and smartphones during Mercury in Rx. Take the time to organize your world in any way possible. Use this energy to make something creative perhaps as well.

REMEMBER: Connect to your past in some way, watch old videos of your family, wedding, or any memorable life event that was a happy memory. Check out old high school pictures of friends and family, and just simply reflect and reminisce about the old days. Fill your heart up with memories and simply feel gratitude for the time you had with them. Connecting to positive energies will help you feel good, and can help you move forward in your life once Mercury in Rx is back to its normal place.



If this is a confusing time for you and you need more guidance about how to handle Mercury in Rx, please get with me about a Reading session, and we can make a time to chat about how this particular Mercury in Rx cycle seems to be affecting your life, and together we can make a plan of action to help you get through it and do something more creative. It’s better than hiding under your desk or laying in bed thinking the sky is falling, right?

Good luck and just know this happens every year since you have been born, you have lived through these cycles year after year, so more then likely you will get through it, but just know you have support out there if you need it.

Mercury Retrograde 2018


Mercury Retrograde 2018


The last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 will be in effect from November 16th through December 3rd, 2018. 


Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take off from work if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde plants is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. 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 cycle takes a hold 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.


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 personal. 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. 
  • Revisit what you need to, like your work.
  • Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.- Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
  • Reorganize your daily life routines.
  • Declutter.- Reflect and practice spiritual work.
  • Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.  



There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that you just didn’t think about before. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option, and try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing.


Mercury is currently in the sign of Sagittarius and this is strong wild energy. Therefore we will be in for some wild twists and turns along the way as our big ideas come out in the open. The sign of Sagittarius, after all, is the sign that shoots for the stars and thinks anything is possible. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can make some interesting new discoveries. 


Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion. Lots of people come back around from our past including ex-lovers and friends. Mercury’s influence seems to bring these chance meetings together! But that doesn’t mean it’s fated to be together.


So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to try and rationalize everything. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken.


This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have. 


Because we are perceiving things in a different way, the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion from December 6 (its shadow ends on January).

MERCURY IN RETROGRADE “SHADOW” PERIOD


For All Zodiac Signs



MERCURY JUST STARTED WHAT’S CALLED IT’S SHADOW Period on October 29th! NEARLY 3 WEEKS PRIOR TO ITS ACTUAL RETROGRADE CYCLE!
Mercury Retrograde: November 16 to December 6, 2018, in Sagittarius and Scorpio. This affects all of us, how does it affect you?
Mercury the planet of communication starts to slow down its speed once again, and prepares itself by coming to a screeching halt 2 to 3 times a year, and then proceeds to appear to move backward for a 3 week time, and this is called the RETROGRADE period! But there’s a time frame before and after it’s actual RETROGRADE cycle called the SHADOW PERIOD, that starts 3 weeks prior to its Retrograde cycle and 2 weeks after, and during these cycles there can be more confusion as we adjust to MERCURY slowing down as it can cause sort of a ruckus, miscommunications, and electronic snafus. With MERCURY’S slow down and stopping to go into its Retrograde cycle, we need to be patient with other folks and their confusion, frustration, mistakes, and so on, and don’t forget to do the same with yourself! Things like computers, smartphones, cars and all things electronic can be glitchy or have minor annoyances. It’s just best to wait it out because this problematic phase will pass and all these snafus and glitches usually will correct themselves. One key rule during the Shadow period is to not overdo things and make too big of a deal out of it if you can, (unlike me lol) because these issues are usually temporary! With MERCURY RETROGRADE our thinking is thrown off, and so is our perception of things. So mistakes, misunderstandings, and problems involving communication are likely. It’s not a good time to sign contracts, make new agreements, buy anything brand new, or begin new projects. It’s an excellent time to research, revisit, plan, and prepare for something later. Remember Mercury likes to take us back literally to our past when it’s in Retrograde, so back to old friends and lovers, and even behaviors and lessons to learn something we didn’t the first go around.

Some Astrologers consider Mercury to be stronger when it is Retrograde because it is closest to the earth than at any other time during its orbit. So Mercury will be between the Earth and the Sun. The fact that Mercury is strong though, doesn’t mean life will go smoothly, hence Mercury Retrogrades bad reputation. An Astrologer once described Mercury Retrograde as Mercury going down into the Underworld and making us walk through that shadowy part of our mind and consciousness! Since Mercury rules over our thoughts, minds, and how we process information this theory makes a whole lot of sense. We have to adjust to this period to understand it’s odd influence on our planet and our minds, it’s like putting on night vision goggles and discovering a whole new world that our minds have to explore and relearn how to understand. And each Retrograde comes with its own set of lessons for us to learn from, because each one is in a different Zodiac Sign, and that changes them up a bit. We should try and understand that Mercury slows things down while in Retrograde, as our minds start processing information differently during the Shadow phase, we have to adjust to the way we see things and use our minds. This has a strong impact on how we communicate, and around anything that involves the way we communicate like technology of all kinds, and traveling as well. There can be more delays and misunderstandings during all of Mercury Retrogrades cycle honestly, as the energy out there can feel just stuck, off, or stagnant. Give yourself extra time when traveling and driving, be cautious and careful out there to avoid mistakes and accidents! There are a lot of accidents during a Mercury Retrograde Shadow period simply because people feel discombobulated, and lose their focus, so take things slow. And take care of your body and well-being, some folks get sick due to this transit because they are trying to pack too many things in their schedule and simply can’t keep up like usual and become overwhelmed and stressed out! Only take things day by day if at all possible. One rule of thumb you can start to do now is to make sure everything you own that is electronical is up to par and has been serviced or backed up in some way, including your cars. If you have to travel during this time plan ahead and expect delays so you are not time crunched and avoid problems. You’ll notice a lot of Astrologers will say “Don’t do this!” or “Don’t do that!” during this cycle, but it’s important to remember not to stop your life during this time. It’s not the best idea to sign anything of commitment during a Mercury in Retro phase, but that doesn’t mean if you feel really good about it, you shouldn’t take a good opportunity either. Follow your intuition and check in often with your higher-self, and see what answers you get.

Here is the Time Table and Dates of Mercury’s Retrograde Cycle this time around:


  • Mercury’s shadow period begins/enters Rx zone: October 28, 2018, 8:52 PM, at 27° Scorpio 16′
  • Mercury stations and turns retrograde: November 16, 2018, 8:27 PM, at 13°Sagittarius 30′ Rx
  • Mercury stations and turns direct: December 6, 2018, 4:23 PM, at 27° Scorpio 16′
  • Mercury ends its shadow period/leaves Rx zone: December 24, 2018, 11:28 AM, at 13° Sagittarius 30′

Take things slow and pay attention, ask questions, and be ok with doing things over again if need be, and you will come out of this time much easier. Have a good one.  ~Ruby

Mercury Retrograde in Aries
By Ruby

March 22nd – April 15th

The first Mercury Retrograde for 2018 starts on March 22nd at 4 degrees in the sign of Aries. Mercury in Aries brings in a fiery mental energy, as Aries is a Cardinal and Fire Sign. We tend to feel more impatient and impulsive during this time, and we can jump without thinking about our consequences first, which can get us into some trouble very quickly, or cause some unexpected problems, as it has become notorious for missed connections, miscommunications, malfunctioning electronics, travel snafus, fender benders, and more.

When Mercury is Retrograde our thinking is thrown off, as well as our perspective. So mistakes, misunderstandings, and problems involving communication are likely. It’s not a good time to sign contracts, make new agreements, buy something new, or begin new projects. It’s an excellent time to research, revisit, plan, and prepare for something later. Remember Mercury likes to take us back literally when it’s in Retrograde, so back to old friends and lovers, and even behaviors and lessons, to learn something we didn’t the first go around.

Since Mercury is in what’s considered to be the most impatient sign of the Zodiac, Aries! This particular Mercury in Retrograde is difficult when it comes to having any kind of patience! I can’t stress this enough. People have already been experiencing the impulsivity, frustrations, and aggression out there over the last three weeks while we have been under the “Shadow Period” as it’s called to the actual Retrograde cycle!

Please be extra careful during this cycle, and watch for other people and how they react and drive, they aren’t thinking clearly under this influence. Aries energy can be prone to accidents and injuries because of the impulsive energy so we may see some accidents occurring around the world, especially involving situations where we didn’t take care of details beforehand. To think we started off this Mercury in Retrograde cycle with an 800-Ton Walkway Bridge falling in Florida because it was built in less than 9 hours! That’s just way to fast during this time, as someone forgot an important detail.

We also need to watch our tempers!
It’s way to easy to get bent all out of shape and frustrated, and enter ego-battles or arguments during this time, without even realizing how we got there! This cycle brings out more aggressive behavior due to feeling confused, and it can serve as an outlet for folks to release their pent-up emotional baggage. Stay focused on your goals and what you want to conquer during this three-week-long period, and put your attention on something positive so you can direct that extra energy into something you need or want. It also is a time to watch your mouth! Remember, Mercury rules our minds, and Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, ya know the GOD OF WAR! We can wage little battles that can turn quickly into bigger issues if we aren’t careful about what and how we say things. Just remember that losing a battle is sometimes the only way to win the war. Keep your language short and sweet on this wonderful day.

With all of that being said, I want you to know you are not doomed to fail if you make important changes or moves during Mercury in Retrograde, but it can cause more issues that you will have to go back over and get extremely detailed about which can be time-consuming. Making changes doesn’t seem to be as successful settled for the future during a Retrograde period. And it can be more difficult to make a plan stick. During a Retrograde period, it’s just more tough to get decisions made from others and even if a decision is made, it is subject to change, either just after Mercury turns direct motion or much later.

Often I find that when we have to redo things during Mercury’s backward cycle, we also get rewarded with something that we didn’t realize we could even have, for all our hard work and frustration there seems to be a pay off more often than not! I was born during a Mercury in Retrograde phase and this happens to me often, where I have to redo something I swore I was done with and even though it is extremely frustrating the rewards I can’t deny are awesome, as long as I am patient enough.

Mercury in Retrograde periods aren’t the best times for communication or clarity, because our thoughts are scattered and we tend to forget what we are talking about, but we might think we know for sure what we are seeing or saying so we can be very convincing,  but it’s a time to question everything because things just aren’t what they appear to be during this cycle. Starting anything that involves communication like a new website, turning in important papers, or making business agreements, for example, can be a big fail. It’s a confusing time to launch anything new, even if it’s not related to communication period.

The world doesn’t choose to live by Astrology influences, unfortunately, so often you will see lots of website overhauls and new systems being put in businesses, and road construction everywhere! Even though this is a challenging time to do so, it seems to work out that folks feel like making changes under the Retrograde time, so you just have no choice but to roll with it. But perhaps the changes that are made now will have been gone over again and again due to the Retrograde cycle and that helps them get it right, who knows, but look for lots of interesting new changes this time around especially as the sign of Aries is all about initiating change and starting new beginnings. Avoid it if you can, I promise you will end up going back over it soon after and having to redo something, and maybe even again and again. The environment will be quite fluid and changeable, no matter what you are told or what you think.

But all we can do is roll with this cycle folks and be patient as possible with each other, that is the most important part of this whole cycle over the next six weeks actually, is to work hard at being PATIENT! Then you can avoid major issues or breakdowns.

New Moon 2017

448a11072c3d46822f8ad821f788d212

“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

Mercury Retrograde – August 2017

wp-1461884119806.jpg

Mercury Retrograde – August 2017
August 12th through September 5th
by Ruby

Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even if it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde is that time out, it’s the chance to get caught up with life, it’s time to get unplugged, and take a long deep breath. It’s a good time to take time off from work if at all possible and focus on reworking what needs to be completed, and no the Universe doesn’t care if you have a deadline, or when it’s time to slow down and unplug, it simply just is.

Mercury rules the lower-mind or individual (finite) mind and its energies, so when it’s in a Retrograde cycle we tend to perceive things in a very different way.

Mercury in Retrograde, like all Retrograde plants, is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new astrological fad. Planets have always gone into Retrograde and will continue to do so. So every once in awhile we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Retrogrades cycle does help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to know as this energy comes in is that it’s 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.

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 personal. Our communication is foggy and clouded.

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 all the info you come by.
– Revisit what you need to, like your work.
– Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
– Reorganize your daily life routines.
– Declutter.
– Reflect and practice spiritual work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.

~What’s Positive During Mercury in Retrograde?
There can be positive effects to your life from Mercury in Retrograde that we just didn’t think about before. Like throwing out the old and organizing our lives. Focus on any past opportunities and reconsider them and see if they are still an option. We may just have to work around all the computer glitches and electronic snafus while doing so. It’s important to understand we don’t have to stop all our projects during the Mercury in Rx cycle. But it’s not an ideal time to start new ventures or to sign contracts, simply because for one reason or another we end up usually changing our mind once Mercury turns direct, or goes back to normal. However, it can be a great time to do some “outside of the box” thinking. It’s just best not to ACT until after Mercury is back to its normal pace. But if you can get something done in a different or unique way, go for it!

~With Mercury Retrograde in Virgo:
This time around our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world differently during this time and through these filters, we can have some very important inner-revelations. With Mercury in Rx it’s a good time to look at past decisions and ideas from a new enlightened perspective, but remember we can be especially analytical and critical, perhaps too much with Mercury in the sign of Virgo through the 31st.

Even though we may be especially stubborn or impatient. Lots of folks will end up returning to old projects and end up redoing, refining, and tweaking them. You may feel stuck in the past in some way while Mercury is Retrograde in Virgo, but you can find old or past ideas to be more useful now, so use them in new ways if you can make yourself move forward. This is a great time to review recent financial matters or work and discover mistakes or oversights. Plans or routines may be reconsidered in ways that can benefit you.

Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around subjects that have already been taken.

This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past and help you reconnect to an old dream or goal to follow through on. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. Because we are perceiving things in a different way and the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before. This cycle can bring clarity and help you remove the restrictions or blocks that are in your way from achieving happiness.

It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember to try not to rationalize everything, which can prove difficult due to this particular Mercury in Retro being in analytical Virgo. Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so might I suggest getting more involved in practices like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing or working on any activities involving your past. And this all can be quite helpful as it keeps your mind more focused and in the right space.

We can get a lot out of renewing our old self-care, health, or fitness programs. Plans are going to be thought about and then dropped rather quickly during this time, so be flexible to changes, as it just comes with the territory. This is a good time to reevaluate our routines and habits, as well as the meaning around what we do for a living, so around our work and any services we provide with Mercury in Virgo.

~Mercury Retrograde in Leo:
Mercury will switch signs into Leo, during its Retrograde phase starting August 31st through September 5th, this is a time for learning or relearning what we love doing. Look back and analyze your past romantic relationships or creative projects. It’s also a time for preparation, rehearsal, and redoing things. It especially can be a good time for role playing something before you actually say or do it!

~Mercury in Rx transits the Sun:
Retrograde Mercury is aligned with the Sun in Virgo on August 26th, this placement lights up our thinking. This connection makes for a favorable time for processing recent ideas or events, and for looking at past problems or issues from a new perspective with a new understanding. Remember what we say or write during this time can have more of an impact for better or worse! There can some amazing new ideas that come through during this time, so be creative!

Mercury will start retracing its steps and go into direct motion on September 5th, this period of time is called the “Shadow” phase and that ends on Sept.19th.

What’s also interesting to note is that Mercury returns to 28 degrees Leo before moving direct again, and this is exactly the same position of the “Solar Eclipse” on August 21st. Retrograde Mercury is also aligned with Mars at this Eclipse point on September 2nd and 3rd, those days are going to be significant, but I will have more on this later.

Last Week of March – Astro “Weekly”

picsart_1397678138910.jpeg

Rubys Astro Readings

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.

This energy should give you the push you need to start new projects and ideas. With Venus, the Goddess of Love in Retrograde it’s time to get rid of the toxic relationships you might be holding on to, whatever is worn out and done needs to go! 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.
If you already know how to look up exactly just where the New Moon falls in your very own personal “Astrology Birth Chart” just to see what part of your life you should be focusing on this Spring, get to it! It’s time to make some magic! If you would like to purchase a “March New Moon Mini Report” then I will do the research for you and with your personal chart and send it to you via email. This will show you what energy and part of your life your focus should be on during this New Moon on Monday the 27th. You can message me here on Facebook or email me at healingruby@yahoo.com
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.

Weekly Update Sept. 10

Rubys Astro Readings

Weekly Update

September 10th

As Summer starts to come to a close and we are finally passed Labor Day, our focus shifts towards everything orange and yellow, and pumpkin spice fills the air and soon it will be Halloween and than Thanksgiving! Ok I so love this time of year, so I am getting overly excited. How about I explain all the different energies the cosmos is bringing in. It’s a cosmic stew.

Jupiter in Libra: Sept 9th 2016 through Oct. 10th, 2017

Starting Friday September 9th, there’s a big shift in energy when abundant, lucky and expansive Jupiter moves out of practical, earthy Virgo and into peace-loving, airy Libra. Jupiter stays for approximately 12 months in each Zodiac sign, so every sign will get a visit in about 12 years. This shift helps things or situations come in more easily, and if anything this is an extremely harmonious energy. It can be a little piece of LUCK for all of you, no matter what your Zodiac sign may be. It just depends on what house it falls in your own personal Astrology chart, to know what area of your life it will affecting.

We all can experience Jupiter’s blessings at some point through October 10th, 2017, but all the Libra folks out there listen up, because you are the most lucky over these next 13 months. There’s even more luck coming in also because Jupiter will be conjunct the Sun in Libra. That’s double the luck for all you Sun Sign Libras! Jupiter aspects can definitely open doors and bring in opportunities, luck, abundance and growth. But if you don’t experience something overly amazing during this time, remember Jupiter also helps us in other ways, like restoring hope and bringing in good vibes that help us feel more optimistic and expansive about life. Which you know all the things you hear about positive thinking, or that you read about online, well it’s true, with positive thoughts come positive energy!

This energy will also affect Libras fellow Air Signs in the zodiac, so Aquarius and Gemini Sun signs can receive some lucky breaks and opportunities as well. We all can look forward to one if not more areas of our lives being affected by this strong energy, it just depends what area Jupiter is cruising through in your own personal Astrology chart. There are doors swinging open and major opportunities to advance during this time. Since every chart is so different in Astrology you can learn more about your own Jupiter energy by purchasing a “One Question” Reading from me, learn just how this Jupiter energy will be affecting you personally!

Email me at healingruby@yahoo.com or message me here on Facebook and ask me “What part of my life is this Jupiter in Libras energy affecting?”

On a grand scale Jupiter’s shift into Libra can help bring folks together, because Libra energy is mostly loving and is all about partnerships and relationships. There will be more commitments in love made during this time like partnerships, engagements, and marriages. Libra is ruled by Venus, who appreciates nothing more than beauty, so this should prove to be an intersting time for the fashion industry, in areas like hair, modeling, makeup and anything to do with what makes us feel beautiful. Anything creative or artistic will also be affected by this very harmonious energy. These industries can see a real interest and upswing over the next 13 months. Libra energy for all of us, no matter your Sun sign is about creating peace and restoring harmony, so folks will come together more easily and work at creating more peaceful solutions. Libra energy is also about balance, so there will also be more Karmic debt balancing going on in the world, and folks will work much harder at making sure if the scales of justice are tipped to far, that justice is served.

Reality Check

Saturn Square Neptune Series Ends

We are smack in the middle of some kind of “Reality Check”, with the teacher of the zodiac Saturn making a rather nasty square to foggy, and always dreaming Neptune. This is the last meeting in a series of three meetings that started back in November of 2015. Thankfully this is the last meeting of the series, and this energy has played out in some way in your life. This energy has caused restrictions and roadblocks for many of you for quite a long time now, it also creates a deeper realization or understanding around something in your life! So the illusion you might have created for yourself in some area of your life or around a certain situation is dissolving, and what you believed the truth to be isn’t actually the truth at all! And I understand it just seems so real all this time.

This energy has caused a lot of relationships to end and certain dreams haven’t been realized.

Saturday can feel rather discouraging, so get out there and have some fun and get away from this energy and allow Lucky Jupiter and loving Venus to take you away from this sobering energy for at least the rest of the day!

The energy that’s being pushed out by this influence has been potent, and the Universe has been handing out messages or clues around something important for you in particular. The good news is this will be officially over after the weekend! The meetings in this series were November 26th, 2015, July 17, 2016 and September 10, 2016. So take a look back to those dates, what were you going through back then and does it relate to anything happening now in your life? Can you make a connection between then and now.

Eclipse Season Continues

We are getting closer to the second Eclipse of the month, and if you thought the first Eclipse on September 1st felt exciting, hold on because this next one on September 16th is a Lunar Eclipse and of course a Full Moon, this can certainly be an emotional time for many of you, but that’s only if you allow it to control you. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is in the sign of sensitive Pisces, and the energy will be highly charged and folks can get overly emotional and oversensitive about things, so beware of drama!

Eclipses do serve a purpose, and they are working some kind of magic for us. These particular Eclipses repeat every 19 years, so you are now ending a chapter in your life story and on this amazing journey, a new cycle is about to begin for you! And that in itself is exciting. So you may discover you’re living out something that seems familiar to what you were doing back then, even if you don’t understand it yet. Pay attention to those Ah-Ha moments this week and into next to help fill you in, as the Eclipse is repeating old patterns and themes. If you’d like to know more about just how this Eclipse Season is affecting you, and the upcoming Full Moon, just purchase a “One Question Reading” about it from me, and ask me, “How will the September Full Moon Eclipse affect me?”

One thing we should be grateful for during this wild and crazy time is that beautiful, loving Venus and lucky, expansive Jupiter are both now in Libra and can help keep you to be more compassionate and caring. This helps us smooth over any rough edges we might have with others.

Love and Relationship Breakdowns and Breakthroughs

One thing Eclipses can create is trouble in relationships, we often see unexpected break ups during this time. So many of my clients have shared their disappointments of a lover or spouse recently. Since Eclipses often bring in unexpected changes, they also provide amazing insight and opportunities to heal your relationships. From time to time out of fear folks shut their heart centers down, and this causes issues and challenges in relationships. Each and everyone of us come into a relationship with some kind of emotional baggage, and Eclipses tend to bring out what’s in that baggage and trigger old issues within ourselves, this can cause disruptions and sometimes breakups!  Often, we aren’t even aware that our hearts are closed off or we would do something about it. Mostly this is a direct result from childhood because that’s where we learn how to love and do relationships in the first place.
So if you’re having relationship woes, it’s likely unresolved issues with your family or mother, as it is believed. And money problems more often than not are about issues you have had with your father! No that doesn’t mean you had a bad relationship with either parent, or a relationship at all. It means that however they made you feel in your upbringing is now affecting your adult relationships.

Most of us have had both at one point and time. These issues can also be healed once you are made aware of them, which helps you heal your relationship issues. So if your relationship has been rocky or its already ended recently, you can begin the healing process and not repeat the same mistakes. 


Have a good weekend! And take it easy this week.

September Horoscopes

September Horoscopes
by Ruby
14184383_1266874299992061_5016926644771505651_n

September is going to be quite a busy month with the cosmos throwing a lot of energy out there. I do feel that between the more challenging energies there will be a calmness that feels quite grounding. But there’s many twists and turns and even surprises coming. The energies during Eclipse Season can feel a bit hectic and somewhat even crazy at times. The Universe is handing out some pretty cool Ah-Ha moments this month, this can bring you clarity and answers that will help you navigate some of this wild energy. The cosmos will also usher in some serious Luck! Woo-Hoo! Now who isn’t excited about that?

This is Eclipse Season so we’re in for some major changes as there’s big shifts and turns ahead. Eclipses always create an exciting kind of vibe that can feel chaotic. It seems many of you will experience several changes at once, but that is not always the case. It’s exciting to think about the new chapters that are being written for you, and the closure some of you will finally get. Being smack dab right in the middle of the Solar Eclipse that occurred on the 1st and the upcoming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 16th, means that we are in the most transformational part right now, September 4th through the 16th.

 Expect some powerful endings and new beginnings as always during Eclipse Season. People from your past might randomly pop up in one way or another over the next 4 weeks, and at one time these folks might have had some serious pull over you or strong influence, but they could actually assist you with your career in some way now. So pay attention and just understand there’s a reason if someone does show up, but that doesn’t mean you have to be around them again, it may just simply be a reminder of some kind. Remember people are like mirrors to each other and the reflection is always enlightening.
The past usually comes around to teach us something, and it being Eclipse time and Mercury in Retrograde through the 22nd, the past will come around for a reason, because that’s what we are supposed to be doing now, revisiting and reviewing parts of our lives so that we can move forward into our future. It’s time to reconnect to someone or something. It is not a good time however to start anything brand new! Usually our perspective will have changed after Mercury is out of Retrograde, and any new project or situation may not be as appealing. This is just one of the strong astrological aspects happening this month, but it sure affects us! Here’s a closer look at the other energies coming in during the month of September.

September Astro Highlights

SEPTEMBER 1st-4th, SOLAR ECLIPSE
September certainly came in with a bang with Mercury in Retrograde and the Solar Eclipse in Virgo on the 1st! So even though new opportunities are presenting themselves, do expect delays and miscommunications because of the Retrograde through the end of September. You may feel wired for sound one minute and simply exhausted the next, especially during the first week of September since the Solar Eclipse energy has been at its highest point already, but that energy lingers on. And you will feel it again around the 13th, when the build up to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse starts to get intense.
September 9th, Jupiter enters Libra
There’s another big week ahead starting on September 9th, when the great benefactor, Jupiter, moves out of Virgo and into the sign of Libra, and with it brings great opportunities for all of us, no matter what your sign may be! This influence will bring about positive changes, as it helps bring folks together. There will probably be a record number of marriages and relationship commitments made, and business partnerships under this influence between September 9th, 2016 and October 10th, 2017. So wherever Jupiter happens to fall in your own personal Astrology Chart, is where you’ll experience the most good luck and possible fortune or even fame. This energy can give out some serious abundance.
September 10th – Saturn Neptune Square
 
This one might be quite difficult for many of you. This energy can bring problems, disagreements, and chaotic situations that just suddenly pop out of nowhere. It’s best to lay low for the week of the 5th through the 11th, especially around your career and any financial dealings, and with Mercury in Retrograde, yea keep by the book, play by the rules and stick to taking care of your responsibilities during this time, and not try to push anything. Don’t believe everything you see, read, or that is said during this time, as this energy is truly the illusions we perceive being busted out by reality! These lessons can get right up in your face if you don’t choose to take care of business, so it’s best to deal with the truth of the matter immediately while you still have a chance to balance out any Karmic Debt you may have.
 
SEPTEMBER 16th – LUNAR ECLIPSE
Then there is the September Full Moon in sensitive, healing Pisces. Ok I’m not going to sugar coat this one, it’s going to be very strong, and potent energy! I feel this Eclipse will bring about more challenges than the Solar Eclipse did, simply because a Full Moon is actually a challenging energy between the Sun and Moon anyway. But also because it’s an Eclipse and it’s in Pisces. Pisces folks are known for being very sensitive, because they are ruled by their spirit more so than their physical body. Therefore a Pisces Full Moon can plug all of us into the energies that be, and the veils between the physical world and spiritual realms dissolve. As these boundaries come down, we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. We become very vulnerable in this energy. It’s very easy for those of us with an empathic nature to pickup on others issues and emotions, and struggle to differentiate whose feelings we are picking up on, and if they are own or someone else’s.
This Full Moon being an Eclipse can bring on sudden breakups, and create endings very quickly in things like our jobs, relationships, and really in any area of one’s life. These Eclipses are also seen as exit points or transitional gateways over to the other side. So often we seem to lose some very well-loved members of the human race during this time, just like Gene Wilder for example…just last week. He clearly was loved by so many!
14124535_10154556602613689_1771267479034212080_o
Things usually get intense about 3 days prior to a Full Moon, as the Moon’s energy builds up to become Full. And with this one being an Eclipse, things can get intense! You might feel like you can’t take the pressure, and for some this means acting badly or going a little crazy! Pay attention to your surroundings and just stay clear of anyone who causes drama, don’t allow these folks to pull you into their madness. It’s too scary in that space to join them, stay focused on creating peace with the Pisces Full Moon. And don’t forget to “Set Intentions” more so focused on letting go and releasing what you no longer want or what isn’t serving you anymore.
SEPTEMBER FALL EQUINOX
On the 22nd we celebrate the Fall Equinox as the Sun moves out of Virgo and into Libra. You might have noticed how focused you have been on the details and maybe even a little over-analytical over this last month, but the energies will shift and you will quickly become more focused on creating harmony and balance in your life, especially around your everyday routines and your relationships. Also this is the glorious day that Mercury goes forward again, and out of its Retrograde cycle, but don’t get to excited as it will take a few more weeks after the 22nd for Mercury to stop affecting our way of thinking and really get moving up to its normal speed again.
SEPTEMBER 26th-30th – PLUTO GOES DIRECT, NEW MOON
September will come to a close in a more harmonious way. Pluto the planet of transformation and personal power will finally move forward again on the 26th. Pluto has been in Retrograde since April, so all of you have learned in one way or another how to take your power back by now, in some area of your life. You might have experienced a situation that pushed you into standing up for yourself. This should have helped you feel more confident and empowered.
So as this energy starts to move forward again, so can you! The month of September ends with a New Moon, but this time in Libra. This is a great time to find new romance, love or business partnerships, and you can rekindle old flames as well. It can certainly assist you in creating a new peaceful energy.
So there ya go, all of September’s aspects, it’s going to be interesting and no matter what part of September’s energies affect you the most, it’s sure to be an eye-opening experience. Happy September!
