For All Zodiac Signs Venus the planet of Relationships, Love, and often Money enters the deeper shadowy waters of passionate Scorpio today!
This is a time when we explore our love lives and financial matters on a deep soul level. We rather enjoy solving the little mysteries in these areas of our life. So we aren’t afraid or worried about our competition so much, as there’s an inner drive to succeed and move ahead that motivates us even more.
Passions run deep and obsessions are strong, especially in our intimate relationships, but this energy can affect our friendships and family relationships as well. Superficial flirtations or anything false doesn’t work in this energy, as we crave deep authentic soulful connections in love and friendship. The yearning we feel for a connection to both body and soul needs to be special and intense to satisfy our deepest desires.
This influence has our emotions running high, as passion takes over our love lives. We can become quite obsessive and consumed by projects and pleasure, so things like sex, money, and food just to name a few are felt more in a deeper more satisfying way and are at the forefront of our minds.
Trust issues tend to be extremely strong while Venus is in Scorpio! We enjoy knowing more, so we love to investigate and find what is hidden, repressed, denied, or ignored. There can be feelings of jealousy that get triggered, which ignites our insecurities. Issues around betrayal always seem to come up and are brought out in the open during this cycle. It’s important not to possess your sweetheart or lover, as that approach may backfire on you.
Any deeper fears or concerns about control and powerlessness can be much stronger than usual at this time. This can lead to paranoid and obsessive behavior, which usually is related to a relationship or partner, and sometimes our finances. It’s a good time to have those hard conversations or discussions about how you are feeling with your partners and lovers! The truth might just pour out of you, if you allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to open up, so be prepared.
The good news is we definitely can strengthen bonds with our partners during this time, by being honest! It’s important to be mindful of coming to conclusions or being too possessive with those we love, or we can push them away. Try to control yourself and know when enough is enough, and stop yourself if you go overboard. Boundaries folks! And remember too much of a good thing is very real, as you can probe too deeply into someone’s mind and cause some sort of psychological trauma. Don’t disturb yourself or the ones you love.
Enjoy this sultry, sexy time and strengthen your bonds and soul connections with the ones you love.
On September 14th, the planet Venus shifts into its home sign of Libra.
Venus rules over love, beauty, money, and relationships. The Zodiac sign of Libra rules our love lives, relationships, and is often about balancing our relationships with a significant other and taking care of ourselves in harmony.
We have had more than our fair share of challenges this year, so this is a wonderful opportunity to refocus on what really matters to us the most, as we can manifest what we desire from the heart! This can include those folks who have been there for us the most. If you have had some sort of rift or conflict with someone lately, this is an ideal time to fix things. So put your differences aside and find some common ground to meet in the middle.
Even if you are one of those kind of people who enjoys being alone, this lovely energy can lead you out and around others, so you might meet up with a family member or a friend during this time, and some of us will be way more social than usual.
Since the Goddess herself, Venus and the sign of Libra both are about what is beautiful, it’s a good time to pamper yourself and do something that makes you feel good about yourself once again. During Venus’s run through Virgo over the last month we had to focus on helping others and our community. Now the focus is turned toward our partners, lovers, and even close family and friends. Perhaps just go get a mani-pedi or take a spa day, or take the whole day off from your responsibilities if at all possible and relax. Do something for yourself you deserve it!
We should also be careful about putting on appearances just to keep the peace. This is an extremely accommodating energy, so we might hold back on saying how we are really feeling, or from asserting ourselves, especially if we feel it’s going to cause any inconvenience for someone we care for. We can be false or superficial to keep out of conflict. Some of us will go to great lengths just to avoid any kind of disagreements.
Take this time to tap into your creative side and do something well, creative! Perhaps spend some time in a place that is beautiful to you, or go on a mini vacay with your lover. It’s can be a beautiful time for couples, as long as you don’t ignore problems that should be dealt with, or even worse try to runaway from them.
During this cycle we can have the urge to merge with people we know and strangers both. So if you’re single or whatever, don’t fool yourself and think you’re in love just because you had that one special date or night out. Give it some time to really get to know them first, as we all can be rather charming during this time.
Venus will be in Libra through October 8th. I hope you have a lovely Venus in Libra time. ~Ruby
June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end.
The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy.
Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!
On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.
On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long.
Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances.
On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.
The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well.
On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune,this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.
June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow period. Mercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!
Happy Summer Solstice. Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!
On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.
The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.
The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.
On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes with what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self more.
OnJune 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.
Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at firstname.lastname@example.org or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings, ~Ruby
These are interesting times from an Astrological Standpoint and December of 2018 is no exception, mind you things should get a little easier or at least our day to day activities will start to calm down a bit, as the shifts occurring are going to help pull us from the strangeness of Retrograde madness that we have been in for so long.
The first week of December we are already dealing with the Goddess herself Venus moving into the sign of Scorpio. This means all you sexy Scorpio’s will be even more sexy than usual! Ha! Venus in this sign makes for an extra attractive next several weeks for all the Signs, but if you are a Scorpio Sun or Rising Sign you should talk advantage of it.
Also this month, our minds can be a bit obsessed with issues that are both fascinating and disturbing, when mental Mercury in Retrograde (backwards) moves back into the sign of Scorpio on Dec 1st, this brings back old theories, ideas, and suspicions about what truth lies beneath the surface. To learn more about Mercury’s shift back into the sign of Scorpio check out my website blog Mercury in Scorpio!
MERCURY MOVES OUT OF RETROGRADE!!!!!
Mercury stations direct on December 6th and leaves its Retrograde cycle. At this point, Uranus in fiery Aries will be the ONLY PLANET left in RETROGRADE until early January 2018, Woohoo! This will be a welcome break from all those planets in Retrograde starting last summer through late fall! 2018 has been a strong time for introspection and insight into ourselves, it was also a time of confusion. But we will be able to have more clarity around the way we both think and feel, and this helps us move forward and meet our goals for the upcoming year.
Have you been having intense Dreams lately? Lots of folks have been having intense or vivid dreams lately, some about old lovers, family members, or friends that they haven’t seen for a while. Some of these dreams are more soul visitations, where we meet up with friends or lovers and just simply hang out and play catch up! With Mars and Neptune slowly coming together, it can bring in quite potent and vivid dreams or visitations from those who have crossed over. It’s a good idea to write them down because they can have special meaning later.
There is a bit of challenging energy coming together from Dec 3-5 when the Sun makes a tense Square to fiery Mars and Neptune! Sneaky more unethical folks can be sneaking around trying to get anything they can from you. Pay attention and watch for those folks who claim to be something they are not or who are not what they appear to be. The more Narcissistic, underhanded people will be sniffing around more so than usual. This influence also brings a sort of sneaky energy out of the people you already know or are associated with in some way, or even those folks you do business with! So again pay attention and don’t let someone take advantage of you.
There’s a New Moon coming together in the sign of quick-thinking Sagittarius, around midnight on Dec 6th here in the United States, or in the wee hours of the morning on the 7th depending on what time zone you live in. This is the most opportune time to Set Intentionsfor new beginnings and to do some sort of manifesting ritual. Basically, you’re just working with the Cosmic energies of the Moon in one way or another!
This particular New Moon is heavily influenced by another connection or what’s called a conjunction between Mars and Neptune both in Pisces. This helps us focus more so on our spirituality as we can feel like doing something that helps us connect into the Universal energies, usually, this is a time when we have a lot of faith and our beliefs are stronger more so than usual with it being Sagittarius Season and all, but we tend to forget the truth about why we celebrate these Holidays in the first place, even though our faith in certain higher purposes or powers is stronger. In all actuality no matter what you believe in or faith you follow, this is a time that marks a new season and the Winter Solstice, but these influences just might help us discover the true meaning around why we celebrate the Holidays around the globe, and it’s much more than just buying each other gifts!
But a warning comes along with this energy, as folks tend to also overindulge and eat and drink too much. Do Not Drink And Drive during this time. Be cautious around folks who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This is a great weekend for Psychic Readings and Spiritual Classes, or for doing anything that helps with spiritual development, it’s just not so good for vices.
There’s a long-term tense Square connection between reckless Uranus and the master of escape Neptune, it’s brought back to life for the last time on December 15th. This aspect has been setting the bar pretty high around raising our consciousness or awareness since mid-2017 and will run strong through mid-2019. But this has been a long time coming as this energy started actually a long time ago back in 1993, when these two planets aligned in Capricorn.
The Solstice, Holidays, and New Years Astrological Preview
The Winter Solstice is on Friday, December 21st when the Sun Enters Capricorn and it officially becomes “Capricorn Season,” but at the exact same time loving Venus and dreamy Neptune are in perfect harmony. And mental Mercury is conjunct Jupiter, this is all some pretty amazing energy, to be honest folks. These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share.
Then the Full Moon occurs on Saturday the 22nd, in its home sign of more sensitive Cancer. During the Christmas Holiday time, the Cosmos lines up and brings in the energy of fun as we feel more like being social, so throwing some sort of Holiday shindig in your own home can go quite well, since the Moon will be in the sign that loves its shell or home the most, Cancer. Traveling can be much easier the week before the Christmas Holiday, than the actual week of Christmas, as there are going to be delays and other unforseen obstacles for traveling during that time. This Full Moon period has a slightly restrained quality, with the masculine facets of the Sun and Saturn in Capricorn opposing the Cancer Moon’s feminine, intuitive energy.
On Christmas Day, the Moon will be in more generous Leo and even the rest of that week seems to be pretty calm, at least from an Astrological viewpoint!
New Year’s Eve things change quite quickly when aggressive Mars moves into its home sign of fiery Aries, watch out folks if you don’t know how to handle this all or nothing kind of energy, then you can have some issues. Mars sparks the energy up to have a rocking New Year’s Eve but there will also be arguments, debates, and wild events with this more aggressive energy influencing us so strongly!
If you would like to know just how any of these Astrological influences will be affecting you, you can purchase a Readingwith me and I will do the research for you, just ask me, “What Does December Have In Store For Me?” You can email me here email@example.com or message me over on most Social Media Sites under Rubys Readings. ~Ruby
As we get closer to Halloween a Full Moon will occur in the sign of Taurus on October 24th! This Full Moon is going to a bit of a challenging energy for us because it can make people feel extremely anxious and some folks are going to act quite crazy! This may not be such an easy influence to get through, so it’s important to understand that this Full Moon is full of disruptive and challenging energy, especially in our love lives and for some of you around your finances.
This Full Moon in Taurus can bring unexpected changes in your love life, relationships, and anything your feeling emotional about already! One thing the Moon in Taurus will do is awaken your senses and sensibilities, as this is a very sensitive sign in one of the most sensitive aspects, however, it also is a time of opportunity to understand your existing relationships, especially with Venus (Taurus ruling planet, and the planet of Love and Money) in Retrograde, as we are already thinking strongly about any issues we have concerning love or money.
All of this might sound a bit frightening, but it’s not all bad! The power of this energy can turn unexpected changes into opportunities. There also maybe unexpected love connections made and practical solutions to any issues you’ve already been dealing with in your love life. And this might bring up new issues to also figure out. This Full Moon has a way of magnifying problems that are opposing forces in your world because the Sun is Opposite the Moon during a Full Moon anyway, always. There’s going to be strong feelings of tension and pressure and you can end up feeling ran down or exhausted by it. It is going to be a highly emotional time starting really soon, but it doesn’t have to be negative depending on how you handle it.
The Full Moon is clashing with unpredictable Uranus, the planet of change, rebellion, and revolution, so it’s going to shake up things and upset the status quo, and the Sun will shift into Scorpio a day before. Plus shadowy Venus Retrograde will make a strong connection to the strong Sun. So starting today and the days ahead to the Full Moon you can feel quite rattled and nerve-racked!
If you’re a sensitive person by nature, so an Empath, Psychic, Healer, or just highly intuitive, you need to make sure and get those energetic SHIELDS UP all around you to block out some of this energy.
All the fixed signs of the Zodiac so Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquariuscan feel confused and foggy. But all of us no matter what Sign you maybe could see an old relationship come back around for up to two weeks after the Full Moon comes together. This may not be such a good thing due the whole Venus is Retrograde energy going on as well, however, there will be some of you who will make it through together.
Dates to Pay Attention To:
October 23rd – It’s Scorpio season! With the Sun entering the Sign of Scorpio the Veils between this physical reality and other realms become very thin for the next 30 days, and we should be honoring our loved ones who crossed over, as Halloween approaches we really should think about where it originated, in the end, it is about the people who lived here and their legacy! But you also might experience some sort of paranormal event during this time, as the ones who crossed over tend to want to say hi!
October 24th – Full Moon in Taurus! Time to “Set Intentions” and Release what is no longer working or serving you, write out what it is you want to let go of in your life, be it feelings, situations, behaviors, thoughts, or people. Make it clear to the Universe what you are ready to release and what you want to bring in to your life or at least attract.
October 26th – Today secrets are revealed, and the truth comes out! Get ready as a big dose of reality, and some clarity might come in about a relationship.
Important Full Moon Info:

A Look Ahead To Scorpio Season
The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher.
Between October 23rd and 30th, there is what’s called a Stellium of planets in Astrology coming together all in the sign of Scorpio, so this is going to be an extremely intense Scorpio Season. Mental Mercury and over the top Jupiter making a challenging connection in Scorpio. The Sun and shady Venus (more in its shadow-self due to its Retrograde cycle.) Whenever there are more than three planets in one sign at the same time, it’s called a Stellium and it creates a vortex of energy that shines a light in whatever part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart it is going through.
Some of you will meet challenges during this time with the same theme, while others will actually thrive due to this energy. All the water signs, so Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces should enjoy this energy and flow more easily through it. But again to understand this energy more personally and how it affects you, book a Reading Session with me, Ruby, and I will look through your own personal Astrology Birth Chart and tell you just what part of your life this is going to affect, and where the strongest energy will be so you can work with it for your benefit.

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:
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.
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion is finally shifting signs after nearly a year of being in VIRGO. Financial stability is usually an issue in one way or another, and the energy of prosperity just like anything else in this life tends to run in cycles. This fall some energy will be building up that seriously can bring in the energy of wealth. Jupiter shifts into LIBRA on September 9th, and brings with it some opportunities to build prosperity!
Jupiter has been in the sign of Virgo for nearly a year now, which has brought us opportunities around our work and health. Jupiter represents abundance, growth, expansion and luck. Once it shifts into LIBRA, here in the next few days, it really can help many of you expand your pocket books and personal wealth. LIBRA is actually ruled by VENUS which rules over Love and Money.
If we look at the planet Jupiter and the sign of LIBRA, these combined energies actually will kick off a lucky period for love, (for some folks.) This energy can help bring together Soul Mates and strong Spiritual Partners, so there’s going to be some serious romance in the air this year! Otherwise if you meet someone who really makes your heart flutter, but they are not the marrying type, this can be more of a “fun nice to have meet you” kind of affair, but it will change you and be something special and memorable! This influence will more than likely start quite a busy Wedding Season for 16/17. This energy also can help pair up perfect business partnerships, that can do some pretty amazing work together and become quite successful.
The upcoming Eclipses in August/September will bring in a repeat of some kind of energy that happened 19 yrs ago in your life. So many of you are actually staring a “New Love” cycle this Fall that continues for the next 19 years. Wow! How Exciting!
Jupiter will transit in LIBRA from September 9, 2016 to October 10, 2017, and LIBRA energy is all about balancing out our lives. Jupiter is about exploration, expansion and taking lucky strides in life to get ahead, which means lots of folks are going to fall in love pretty hard and fast! One thing is forsure this energy can help create some much needed peace in our relationships and partnerships. LIBRA energy brings us a strong desire to create peace and balance. There can be more focus and appreciation for things that are beautiful, we can see more random acts of kindness and lovely gestures being made towards one another.
This influence can also help us balance out our Karmic Debt, so what comes around will definitely go around, what is right and wrong mean more in this energy. What is fair is the main theme. Justice will be served with Jupiter in Libra.
There’s some lucky days ahead of us, on July 6th, 8th, and 9th. If you need to initiate something or do something important, these three dates are good to get things off the ground. With the New Moon behind us now, we can start to move forward as the light of the Moon slowly increases daily until the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 19th.
With shocking Uranus squaring the Full Moon, prepare for the unexpected. You might suddenly realize that you have to put some sort of boundaries up, when folks try to violate your personal space. Some people can become extremely pushy as they try to push their agendas, beliefs, and opinions off on you, this can really frazzle your nerves.
Besides that heavy energy, on the 7th, Venus and Mercury are moving into Leo next week, followed by the Sun on July 22nd. With so many planets in Leo and fire signs, you can expect the energy out there to become very sociable. If you really want to enjoy yourself, there’s some seriously fun energy ahead to enjoy! This energy is much more upbeat and you may feel like. indulging yourself. The Cosmos wants you to play! Come on!! What do you have to lose! And yes you deserve it!
This Wednesday, the Sun Conjuncts Mercury in Cancer. This is such a positive time to express your feelings. If you’ve been looking for the right time to tell someone how you feel about them or that you are attracted to them, this is the day to do it! It’s just a lovely energy to ask someone to marry you in!
However, Thursday doesn’t have the same energy, it’s not as favorable with mental Mercury opposing Pluto and Venus and then Squaring Uranus. There may be confrontations and arguments, and power plays are likely.
On Friday, we can smooth over any rough edges with folks when Mercury and Jupiter connect. This is a good day for communication, short trips and writing….so by the 9th you can quite nicely work on finishing any projects you need to get done. This energy can help us feel more accomplished, which is a nice way to mark you to-do lists done and get on with your weekend.
A beautiful connection is underway between Venus and Neptune, and we can be much more receptive to such things as beauty, the arts and our imagination! We are just simply tuned in with our hearts to our spirit! Doesn’t that sound magical, well it can be. Harmony, kindness and compassion rule the day with this energy, so it’s important to be gentle with others and harness this energy. The simple pleasures of life can be felt very strongly now.
Relationships can flow much easier because the tension has been removed for now, and we tend to see the best in folks. Romance is highly favored!
There’s just one problem and that is mental Mercury is squaring sensitive Chiron…. as well over these next few days. This energy can have us feeling more reserved and held back when it comes to expressing how we feel. So this can take away some of that beautiful energy from the Venus/Neptune influence and sort of interupt the good vibes it is trying to bring in. It may make it more difficult to trust or believe what other folks are trying to say, or communicate to us, because we don’t quite get how they’re really feeling when they do talk to us.
There’s now four planets currently in what’s called Retrograde; Saturn, Mars, Pluto, and now Neptune, which just joined the trio earlier in the week. We’re also in what’s called a “Mutable Grand Cross”, which sounds intimidating in itself, and it is a challenging alignment that can cause lots of changes and frustration. And it’s already proven itself over this last week, and it’s effects might last a few more weeks.
So all of this means that our decision making is difficult now. You probably don’t have the clarity needed under these astrological influences to make any major decisions. If you want to handle thingthing with a level head, it might be best to pause things for a few weeks before forging ahead with any plans or ideas. On June 17th, Saturn will make an exact Square to spiritual Neptune both in Retrograde! It’s important to NOT believe everything you hear or read, especially online or when the media is involved. There is a lot of deception going on through the weekend. Be careful about meeting people for the first time and thinking you’re in love, illusions are closer then they appear, just like a review mirror. Take your time and get to know the person before assuming everything is perfect.
Venus moves into Cancer today as well. So our Cancer friends are going to be in our hearts, as Venus influences our love life, no matter who the partner is, and our close tight but relationships and friendships and often our money. With Venus in senstive Cancer we can wear our hearts on our sleeves, and feel extremely lovey dovey. But we also can be much more security based with our money on this energy… to the point of insanity! It’s ok to make plans for your financial goals now, but don’t go so overboard with your money that you don’t make room for mistakes and adventures!
This upcoming Full Moon, Monday, June 20th is in Sagittarius. This Full Moon can reveal an ending of some sort in your life and then a new beginning. The Sun will be in Gemini at the same time as the Full Moon and this is a good thing. The Sun will move into Venus later that day and marks the beginning of Summer.
Meanwhile, Mercury is opposing Saturn today as well, so no matter which way you go or turn, there’s probably an obstacle of some sort. So if someone wants a decision out of you, stall or make them wait! If you’re not to sure what this Full Moon will bring you, as far as an ending and new beginning, please order a “One Question Reading” from me! Just message me at email@example.com and ask, “What does the Full Moon mean for me?”
Better news for next week!
There’s a lovely Jupiter/Pluto aspect that happens on June 27th, and it’s easier to make solid decisions later next week into the weekend. Mental Mercury who has a great deal of influence on us, is also in a aspect and can have us feeling quite intuitive, sounds like a great time for a Reading! So things can dramatically change for the better by next weekend. Plus, there’s a lovely Venus/Neptune trine on June 27th. That will be a great day to let your creative juices flow, anything about romance, art or writing should be taking advantage of next weekend. Mars will finally move forward again and out of its Retrograde cycle on the 29th, and we will get our mojo back again, (this one I can’t wait for) …so if you’ve been feeling runned down and as if your motivation is just gone, Mars will help give you that special boost you’ve been needing…once he’s back on track again. But tempers can flair up this week for sure until then, and hostility is in the air. But soon you will be back to take action around the decisions you’ve made days prior.
June goes out with a bang when Venus opposes Pluto on the last day of month. You can strengthen a relationship on this day or you can release someone or a situation for once and all. As you can tell June is a very busy month as we feel pushed and pulled on. But as this month winds down some pretty big decisions in your life will be made. Hopefully for the better.
