Mars in Aquarius

September 10 – November 15

For All Zodiac Signs:

Today Sept. 10 Mars enters the sign of Aquarius where it will remain through November 15th.

Mars oh Mars, that little hot “Red Planet” has been stirring up our aggressions and passions for a while now, but finally, it is out of its Retrograde cycle and is ready to rumble once again. Mars is moving forward now and has entered the fiery revolutionary air sign, Aquarius. So if you’ve been feeling depleted of determination or motivation, expect your energy to return soon. Mars, named after the Roman God of War, rules over motivation, energy, and passion. It inspires supercharged and explosive actions, which can lead to either great accomplishments or utter destruction.

Our freedom is of the utmost importance under Mars in Aquarius, especially involving our friendships and partnerships. Even if we are in something committed we tend to want to do “our own thing”, no matter what, be it personal or in business. During this cycle, we can experience amazingly dynamic energy levels, but it can feel erratic at times! We are chasing down our goals now “full throttle” as this energy pushes us to do so, so we may achieve our goals through hit and miss actions. We can feel much more assertive and be more original, intelligent, unorthodox, independent, resourceful, inspired, and organized in some ways.

Aquarius is a fixed air sign, and its energies have us feeling more determined, stubborn, thoughtful, social, and full of ideas. This energy has us feeling more caring towards the group or community as a whole, so if you feel more motivated by teamwork and a shared cause that is completely normal under this influcence. The progressive qualities of Aquarius also inspire the wellbeing of society as a whole, especially with those who are being treated unfairly. Your inner revolutionary is about to wake up folks, and you may get excitied about introducing new ideas to others, as well as challenging some folks past assumptions about other people.

Occasionally, our moods may shift and change, and we can get quite stubborn and eccentric, and a bit air-headed or zany! If we get frustrated or angered under Mars in Aquarius we tend to be more to ourselves, as we do not like confrontation unless we slip and lose control, than Watch Out, we can be very direct and matter of fact, shoving reality in other folks faces! But we tend to be more verbal about it than physical. Also, if we are not happy with someone we can be quite passive-aggressive at times, and take some nasty shots.

Much of the energy we feel under this influence will go into being more socially active, especially if something is considered to be humanitarian, so joining forces with like-minded folks who are with a special cause or group is very satisfying to join up with as we don’t mind taking on the establishment if necessary. This influence does help us to think of the team again and be more cooperative and less concerned with personal power for now. We can be quite attracted to what is considered different, unconventional, and offbeat, and we tend to approach problems from a more intellectual detached perspective.

Sex takes on a whole new meaning while Mars is in Aquarius. Mars plays multiple roles. He’s associated with the body, physical vitality, lust, conquest, and how you get what you want, but especially since Mars rules over sexual activity we will experiment and play the field before committing ourselves to one partner during this time, it’s a time for independence in love and relationships usually, and lovemaking is more spontaneous, as we have a need for constant change.

With this Mars energy being in the most eccentric, non-conformist sign of the Zodiac, you may feel more like asserting your individuality and embrace your weird quirks. You get an opportunity to express yourself in rare form without fear of judgment from others.

Anything that might have seemed stuck or impossible while Mars was in Retrograde is going to move forward once again now, especially concerning our love lives and whatever makes us feel truly passionate. Combined with the energies of Venus now in the sign of Scorpio, it’s a time where those around you who don’t embrace every part of you get cut out! It’s an important time where you’re inspired to build a strong network and support system full of loyal friendships with good intentions. So get to mingling and build your tribe while Mars is in Aquarius and help some folks along the way.

Venus in Scorpio

Venus in Scorpio: Intense, Passionate, Committed
September 9 – October 1st

fa639c398c57932824e0f5d7a8801f9d

 

Venus enters Scorpio today and this will be a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships and around our financial affairs. This is conveniently perfect timing with the spooky Fall season right around the corner as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can fall right out, so we can be more secretive about both money and love. This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships! But often to get to the point of healing you have to pull out the not so fun emotional stuff first and do some serious analyzing.

Venus in soulful, seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what we love and what is superficial in our love lives and concerning our financial affairs, so secrets are often exposed. If you are cheating on a lover or partner, may I suggest you figure out what you want during this time, as this energy is going to draw out the truth around things like jealousy, secrets, abuse, and misguided behavior! Under the energy of the Scorpion we like to get to the bottom and below the surface of situations so we can examine issues of power, fear, sex, and desire more so than usual. Astrologers seem to consider Scorpio a tough sign for beautiful and sweet Venus, as Scorpio is not as concerned with superficiality and prefers chasing after love that will transform. So just like the Scorpion Queen herself, you may feel more like getting below the surface to examine things deeply in your relationships during this time.

Venus rules over our relationships and is more sociable, friendly, and affectionate. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go deeply into love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences while Venus is in Scorpio. Depth takes hold and becomes more important than intimacy, and pushes us to give up on just dating as we desire something more long-lasting and romantic instead. The only problem is people are going to again experience the darker side of Venus which is quite wild, think about what people do in the name of love sometimes, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows under this energy, it can get dark folks and you can get more obsessive when Venus is in this sign and jump way to fast when it comes to matters of the heart.

While Venus is in Scorpio our inner detective is on high-alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the shadows in our relationships. Those thoughts start to play more and more in our heads, and we tend to start looking at all the signs around us to see why we don’t feel at peace in our relationships. This can become obsessive and can feel more paranoid or jealous than usual under this influence. It’s a time to dig deeper beneath the surface and discover what we are intuitively picking up on and get to the truth of any matter, the light is going to shine on what’s really going on. But we are more willing to stick things out to find some sort of common ground in our relationships and with friends, and co-workers or business partners. So we can either make things work or let it go! This is a time for a major reality check if we like it or not.

Under this influence, we might experience the more Dark Side of Venus, which can turn her influence into something more mysterious and secretive, therefore we aren’t going to feel like playing nice like we have been while Venus was in the sign of Libra. Instead, we want to dig deeper and spark some sort of much-needed change in our relationships and around any issues we are having with money or our financial affairs. Just think of the world Transform, and that means things can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships.

Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns around money and any power struggles you may be involved in. Those little subtle issues that you ignored tend to be more obvious and exposed under this energy. How our money is spent becomes a bigger deal now, especially in our partnerships where financial resources are shared. This also seems to be a time when we have a much stronger interest in making financial investments and when we can make powerful decisions about loans, insurance, or in any area of our lives that concerns money.

While Venus in Scorpio we can feel intense and this can end up feeling like a heavy time emotionally speaking, but it can be an amazingly transformative time. All of this super intense energy leads to stronger bonds if you take on the challenge of this transit, but it can be hard on us both emotionally and physically speaking, but you can end up changing things for the better. This is a sexy time that could end up bringing you and your partner even closer together or help you meet a soulmate that connects with you on a very deep soul level. Either way, all we can do is ride the wave of this energy and keep ourselves and compulsions in check.

Astrological Weekend General Astro News:

 

 

wp-1478190225412.jpg

 

Mental Mercury moved into the sign of Virgo this week, where it actually feels more comfortable, but this influence can cause overthinking and have you overdoing something, especially if it is mentally stimulating.

 

Saturn has gone direct from its Retrograde Cycle, hooray! You should start to notice feeling happier again, and that heavy weight being lifted off your shoulders. Saturn has been in Retrograde for nearly 5 months, this means you can start to make big moves forward again with goals and tasks you have been holding back on since April! You more than likely will be given more responsibility or be asked to take on more obligations now.

 

A rare few feel better under certain Retrograde cycles, depending on the planet and where it is located in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart! All Retrograde cycles are not the same because each time a planet goes into its Retrograde cycle it is in a different sign, so the effects they have can be very different for all of us.

 

Friday a lovely Earth “Grand Trine” came together involving Mercury, Saturn, and Uranus. This will be an excellent weekend for making plans and long-term goals. So get to work on your future folks, you have been waiting long enough, the time to take action and make moves is now!

 

On Saturday, September 8, all the couples out there need to be careful, as the Cosmic Lovers, Venus and Mars face off!

This can bring up drama and conflict in our intimate and close personal relationships, so it’s going to be all too easy to pick fights over the weekend, try to let your passions lead you to do other things instead of arguing. Get moving and burn off that energy!

 

On Sunday the 9th, Venus is shifting gears in a big way and moving into the sign of Scorpio, the dark mistress of the Zodiac, and this is going to be an interesting 3 weeks. If you are born with your Sun sign in Scorpio this energy can help you feel good and look good too if you choose to take advantage of it! Otherwise, all the other signs are going to feel more passionate about something or someone perhaps.

New Moon in Virgo

 

On Sunday the 9th, a New Moon comes together. Please take some time to “Set Intentions” or make out wish lists. Think about the things or energies you wish to bring to you or draw into your life over the next month. Perhaps it’s more money or a new relationship. Or maybe you wish to move or you are looking for a new job. Write out your wishes on Sunday the 9th with the New Moon, because New Moons are always about new beginnings and are the best time of the lunar month for opportunities and to start something new, and this one is especially strong with so many Retrograde planets moving the right way again we can actually help the energies move along much easier now.

 

New Moons help us look at what necessary improvements can be made in our lives. So depending just on where the New Moon is falling in your own “Astrology Birth Chart” is where you have the most power to create what you want for the next 30 days. If you don’t know where this particular New Moon is going through your Chart, then get with me about scheduling a private Reading and I will pass along all the information you need about the New Moon and what part of your life it will have the strongest effect on.

 

Good Or Maybe Great News

And lastly I must leave you with some Good News:

 

On September 12th lucky Jupiter makes a beautiful connection to powerful Pluto, this is one of the major planetary aspects actually occurring this Fall Season.

 

When Jupiter sextiles Pluto or connects to it, it can bring success for you right along with it, if you are of course willing to make some sort of positive changes. This isn’t the kind of energy you have to push to make changes happen, unlike the unexpected aspect or T-Square energy I discussed in the first part of this article. This is a more natural change that unfolds in our lives this fall. This helps us gain control or power over something more spiritual so it can help with things like wealth, personal growth, or even our career growth. The Cosmic forces are now working behind the scenes in our favor since Pluto is involved, we just might have our luck expanded in some way with Jupiter helping things along, so some of you are going to see real advancements. There could be a new job or a promotion at work, or you could see your income increase or draw some sort of money to you! So get out there folks and take advantage of the opportunities the Cosmos is trying to bring in, let these doors open and walk through them, please. Now is the time!

 

If you want to learn about how any of these Astrological events are going to affect your life over the next 3 months, get with me about purchasing a Reading Session. I can help you navigate these Cosmic paths and hopefully help you discover what parts of your life you should be focusing on to create powerful shifts in your life.

What are the planets doing exactly now?

Desktop-helloautumn-1856x1161

We are now in the final quarter of the year folks, so September through December of 2018 is finally a good time to start untangling the mess that all the Retrograde Planets might have caused, so it just makes sense to work on the areas of your life that you feel somewhat unsure, confused, stuck, or just blocked in. Now that passionate Mars has moved forward and out of its Retrograde cycle, and hard-nosed Saturn has moved direct and out of its Retrograde cycle on September 6th, our lives are slowly starting to move again, which means we can hopefully join in with this energy and move forward as well. Clarity will be gained from our work and careers, which is good news for lots of folks who have had major issues with their jobs during the Retrogrades.

 

Heads up! 

Venus has just started its “Shadow” phase before it goes into its Retrograde cycle soon in October. This brings some more insight into our love lives, and this can help us learn what changes must be made in our relationships and also around our finances. And with Venus now in the sign of Scorpio, we get to learn deeply what we are doing in our relationships both wrong and right. If you are one who is holding onto a secret of some kind in your relationship or doing something sneaky that affects it, be extra careful under this influence, skeletons in the closet seem to fall right out into the open and come up to process and figure out!

 

Saturn just started moving forward again, but it’s slow-moving and then yet Venus, another planet is also changing direction and headed backward in Retrograde at the same time. So soon we might start to feel like things are headed in the right direction, but there are probably a lot of unanswered questions after such a slow-moving summer full of block and delays. It’s finally time for a change.

 

Besides the Retrogrades, there is another important Astrological connection that’s already begun that you should know about. This is hitting some of you quite hard right now. It’s called a T-Square and these connections are not so easy to navigate as the energies are pulled into more harsh directions. This month’s T-Square involves Venus (love & money), Mars (anger & motivation), and Uranus (divine messages, changes, inventions, rebellion, & liberation.) These connections are already causing sudden and unexpected surprises and turn of events, as they all battle it out through the end of September. Therefore, you may feel under attack in some way, as there could be some surprises in both business and personal relationships to contend with.

 

The energies from September 10th through the 15th will peak, and you will more than likely feel the intensity of the T-Square in one way or another, off and on throughout September. This can cause certain effects like unpredictable events and lots of big shifts and changes, also whether issues which have already begun this week and possible shocks and surprises both positive and negative. There also can be frustrations that lead to unexpected outbursts of anger, so aggressive behavior, arguments, and fussiness can be an issue.

 

Unexpected changes in our relationships, especially with Venus shifting into its Retrograde cycle soon, which can affect us both personally and professionally. There can be quite interesting attractions to people and different kinds of relationships formed, and you might just feel bit by the “love bug” during September time, as there will be some love at first sight stories to tell. And changes or sudden unexpected events around money, for some of you this influence, can have an extremely positive effect financially speaking.

 

Here’s a brief breakdown of the T-Square Formation for all you Astrology buffs:

  • Venus is in the sign of Libra and is making a tense Square to Saturn in Capricorn
  • Venus will shift into the sign of Scorpio on the 10th, but also will oppose Uranus in Taurus.
  • Mars shifts out of Capricorn and into the sign of Aquarius and is Squaring Venus and Uranus both.

 

picsart_10-09-03946462823.jpg

Let me also mention that the second and even some of the third week of September might be highly beneficial for some folks, especially those born under the signs of Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Blessings are coming in as well, and some of you might just experience some sort of miracle, so hold on tight and ride this wave of good fortune. You may also find that the unexpected events I am talking about are also blessings in disguise. Now not everyone born under these signs will experience good luck, but some of you just might receive some sort of good news, so just wanted to put that out there.

 

If you find yourself on the other end of these influences and feel frustrated or upset, here’s a little bit of helpful advice to get you through the tough times. First off don’t forget to breathe, it really can help you get calm and find a better space to be in, it has been scientifically proven over and over that breath is the key to calming the body and mind down. It’s important to not have any expectations about how things should go or how they are going to be one way or another, with Uranus involved we really should “expect the unexpected,” which so far has proven to be very accurate for the early days of September.

 

A Warning:

If someone starts to show signs of frustration, agitation or just gets angry with you, then it’s time to get away from them and give them their personal space. Under this intense energy, it’s not worth getting into arguments or it can go way overboard! Don’t allow someone to suck you into his or her drama! Do not pick fights with others or be antagonize others or you may have to deal with some raw anger and who knows where that may lead.

September’s Monthly Forecast

Rubys Astro Readings
For All Zodiac Signs
 
September of 2018 is the time to check on all your work and get organized since we’ve been under so much heavy Retrograde (backward) energy. I know this is a long article, but I had to share all the excitement, and what a month this is going to be folks, as we start off slow moving, but there are such strong shifts that start to move us forward again, you may be in a completely different place in one or more areas of your life by the end of the year under all these changes! The “Heavy Retrograde Season” energy is coming unraveled now and many of the planets that have held us back and stifled our forward movement while in Retrograde are going to be moving forward once again by the end of the month. So get ready big changes are coming! Get excited and start planning your next big move.
 
We start out the month with a long-term Jupiter/Saturn aspect on September 3rd, this connection comes just in time to help us focus on getting to work without taking any shortcuts, so more then likely taking an easier path won’t help you to sidestep any of your responsibilities for the first week of the month. This is the time to rebuild and restructure our lives, work, and business goals. Breathe new life into old projects and maybe wait until the New Moon on the 9th to start anything totally brand-new. Do the legwork and take steps to help you get where you want, but if you push or overdo things now you might just hit a brick wall and get quite frustrated! Many of you will feel quite overwhelmed this month as you try to get things back on track again, but that’s due to jumping so fast, one step at a time folks!
 
Mercury and Mars just went forward again and out of their Retrograde cycles in August, and on September 6th Saturn also goes forward and out of Retrograde! This is a big deal and will be felt in a deep way. There have been six planets in their Retrograde cycles all summer long, so many of you have felt stuck in one or more areas of your life. But all the frustration and delays are about to come to an end folks when Karmic Saturn finally comes out of Retrograde! This energy is already slowing us back down again as it gets ready for this shift, so you may feel tired or worn out, and are questioning your health right now, but really it’s just this energy zapping you. Saturn’s energy, when slowed down, can feel heavy and like you have a weight on your shoulders. It’s important now to set boundaries and work on saying “No” to the things you don’t want, or to what’s not working for you anymore, including any promises or commitments you’ve outgrown.
 
Saturn freshly out of Retrograde on the 6th will also make a beautiful “Grand Trine” with Mercury and Uranus. This is the Cosmic boost we are needing, as it helps raise our motivation levels to go after our goals. And it brings in some amazing opportunities we can chase down! Saturn is known as the planet of Karmic Debt so it can help us take out the trash and clean up some of the messes that the “High Retrograde” Season caused that started last April. A whole lot of folks will finally start to see progress and positive changes through the end of the year despite any Retrograde slow-downs.
 
There’s a magical New Moon coming together September 9th, in the sign of service, Virgo. If you are intuitive, Psychic, or sensitive, you may feel this energy strong! This time around the Sun and Moon are well aspected by powerful Pluto and lucky Jupiter. So pay attention, all healers, light workers, or spiritual warriors as special gifts are coming soon! There’s some seriously lucky energy brewing now and you might be feeling like something is coming, but you just can’t put your finger on it, and you may just end up in the right place at the right time, and something special might be happening very soon over the days leading up to this glorious New Moon. Some folks will just feel especially good from this influence and things will fall into place, finally! It’s about time.
 
Also, let me not fail to mention this New Moon is also going to be in a tense opposition to foggy Neptune, this influence may just put us in the right place to be of help or service to someone else! The Universe is calling out all healers and lightworkers of the world to do some serious work from the heart, so we must continue to lift others up during this time. Pay extra close attention to any opportunities that present themselves to be helpful or of service to someone who needs you! It’s important and not only helps those in need but also helps us balance our own Karmic Debt out, but more importantly healing others always in return helps heal you!
 
We have already been working on eliminating what is blocking us, and removing obstacles in our way. But when mentally curious Mercury makes a connection to Venus in Scorpio on September 9th, the energies shift once again, especially around our love life! The process of getting rid of stuff will continue for the next month. I don’t know about you but I have been hit by this a few weeks ago and have been organizing everything! And with Mercury now out of Retrograde, it is just that much easier to get things in order.
 
Venus will enter Scorpio also on the 9th and this will be a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships, and around our financial affairs. This is conveniently perfect timing with Fall right around the corner, as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can come out so we can be more secretive about both money and love. This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships!
 
Starting September 12th will be a good time to make important decisions, negotiations, and commitments when Jupiter makes a nice connection to powerful Pluto. Under these energies, we can actually have successful business meetings, especially if they are involving investments or real estate. While in this powerful energy we are able to nurture our ambitions. It’s a favorable time for the law, business, and commerce. Plus we might enjoy increased influence and insight now, as this energy helps restore our faith and hope, and opens us up to the possibilities! You might notice a deeper, stronger desire to make your mark out in the world, so you’ll give more time and energy to help yourself and others. This motivates us to go after some personal or professional goals! You might feel the nudge from this alignment to do something to better yourself, it’s time for some self-help really! Problems get solved more easily at this time, especially ones that have been around for a while. Sudden resources or opportunities show up that we missed out on before.
 
The Sun Enters The Zodiac Sign of Libra on September 22nd, and this sets the tone for the next three months. This is our Autumnal Equinox. On that day we will experience equal hours of daylight and darkness. While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next 28 days or so. Our relationships will also become of great interest and focus from September 22nd through October 23rd, but we can struggle with how to handle our relationships with Venus in Scorpio now. It’s going to take real balance to feel comfortable with our love lives.
 
The Full Moon comes together on September 24th in the sign of Aries! This is going to be a strong, potent Full Moon that serves as a reminder to consider if you’re taking care of yourself and the people in your close relationships or partnerships, equally. But this also can bring up issues about our leadership skills, and our abilities to initiate the changes that we need. While under this lunation, it makes a tense square to stern Saturn, so things may feel heavy or even draining once again during this Full Moon, but this is short lived. This can produce the energy of blocks and restrictions, so it can feel harsh as we are being served with reality checks. But we will show the Universe and prove to ourselves just how tough, resilient, and persistent we can be.
 
On the 25th, Chiron the “Wounded Healer” moves back into the sign of sensitive Pisces while in Retrograde, it was in this sign for years prior, but then it will go back into Aries later until finally going out of Retrograde on December 8th. This Retrograde cycle is all about taking the time to assess your mental and physical well-being. If you are not choosing to deal with any health or mental problems you might be experiencing during this time, they can become a bigger issue. Don’t ignore your body, listen to it! Chiron is trying to show you what’s wrong so you can heal something. Chiron is always about learning how to live with and through pain, so it wants you to deal with your emotional trauma and let go of your suffering.
 
Pluto will also turn direct from its Retrograde cycle on the 30th, this will be an intense shift folks! Weeks prior expect to feel perhaps more sensitive about the roles you play and what you have power and control over, and what you don’t! This shift can make us hyper-focused around our ambitions, as there is a strong pull or need to feel empowered by something in our daily lives. Over the coming weeks and months, the power to make deep changes in our lives becomes more evident and direct. We are more likely to start making big and necessary changes as we don’t feel as held back as we have while Pluto was in Retrograde over the last several months. So this is yet another powerful influence in September that motivates us to get moving and make changes!
 
September of 2018 is shaping up to be a pretty interesting month, with all these planets shifting and moving forward once again, you to should be able to move towards your dreams, plans, and goals that were kept on hold since last spring. Success is in the air, and this energy opens things back up! As we walk and then run through these cosmic doors, a bunch of you will feel more ambitious, so you’ll be able to achieve some of your goals over the next few months, especially around your work or career. But watch for pitfalls, there’s an awful lot of shifts and we may not be as ready as we feel just yet to make major changes! This is a month to stick to doing what is expected of you and see what good stuff you can draw in. So allow some things to just play out and see what happens at first, then follow the good feeling stuff.
 
Have a Happy September!

Full Moon Guide

Full Moon Guide

by Ruby

“How does the ‘Full Moon’ affect you, and how do you utilize its potent energy?”

During a ‘Full Moon’ you have an opportunity to bring about some positive changes in your life if you use this energy wisely. It either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball, the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder about how to work with the ‘Full Moon’ and its energies.

Remember a ‘Full Moon’ disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and every one of us. So the key to achieving success during a ‘Full Moon’ is to stay calm and embrace its positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a ‘Full Moon’, and our emotions can seem extremely intense. A ‘Full Moons’ energy is very powerful, so it’s important to know where you’re directing it. You can start by staying focused on positive intentions from your heart. Which means being real and authentic with yourself.

We’ve all heard of how the ‘Full Moon’ affects human behavior, causing chaos; as it fills up emergency rooms, but we also see random acts of crime spike dramatically during a Full Lunar cycle. Not only does the Moon actually create the tides in the ocean, science has also proven that the ocean literally ‘swells’ during a ‘Full Moon.’ The human body is made up of around 70% water. If the ‘Full Moon’ can move an entire ocean it certainly can and does have an impact on our human bodies that are mostly made of water. Water is strongly associated with and symbolizes our emotional well-being.

So just as the power of the ‘Full Moon’ can make entire oceans swell and move, the water we hold within ourselves becomes charged up from its energy, and this causes emotional side effects. The energy of a ‘Full Moon’ has a strong influence on us, hence why people act out days prior to its actual being Full…. this usually starts about three days prior and up to three days after it became Full. Just think about how the ‘Full Moons’ energy is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out, it’s a very powerful, potent energy. All of the Moon’s cycles affect us differently, (but they do affect us,) because they’re part of us. The ‘Full Moon’ perhaps having the most dramatic and noticeable impact.

Ask yourself just how much personal power you have? If one can stay focused and use the ‘Full Moons’ energy to send out positive intentions, you can create and manifest energy out here…in this physical reality. It’s really all just about being conscious and aware of what you’re creating. Water molecules have been proven to hold an emotional charge within our bodies. How you feel is how they react, and they DO react according to your energetic intentions. So if you’re happy or sad, positive or negative, the water within you is affected on a molecular level. If we concentrate on this energy and focus on what we truly desire, and then visualize that – even more importantly FEEL it – can you imagine the possibilities! We can literally create what it is we desire out here in this physical world. I find that to be exciting! If you’re more interested in understanding how the water in our bodies affects us, check out this website on Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, “The Water Crystals of Masaru Emoto”

This means if we visualize and then “FEEL” our intentions – as the Moon grows full – and I mean truly “FEEL” what it is we want, we can literally transform our feelings and intentions into reality in this energy. It’s my hope you can make sense of this and use the power of positive thinking and visualization to manifest your Dreams into physical reality; the ‘Full Moon’s’ energy is just a bit of Magic we need to make it happen. Let me know what you do with this info, and if you’re brave enough to test the waters?

The ‘Full Moons’ energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware of these energies, it gives you an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth. Here are some tips to follow during the ‘Full Moon’, that can help bring in more positive energies…and release old energies that just simply don’t work anymore in your life. Here are some simple guidelines to follow during the ‘Full Moon’:

1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!

The ‘Full Moon’ is a time of releasing and one should stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing how you’re feeling down or telling a friend, and wait for at least a few days after the ‘Full Moon’ and then again write down how you’re feeling, see the comparison. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.

2. Think positive thoughts!

During the ‘Full Moon’ each month, you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to sleep, visualizing what you truly desire, or on what’s good or positive in your life while being thankful for your blessings…it can be magical! Remember “the attitude of gratitude.”

For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.

3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.

The ‘Full Moon’ is the right time to do manifestation work around releasing what is no longer working or serving you. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write what you would like to manifest and what energy you’d like to see gone or are done with. You could even make a Vision Board with pictures that represent your goals, it can be the actual goal or the word that represents your dreams and wishes, place them on a cork board, make a collage and hang it up on a wall so you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies that you want to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or Setting Intentions as it’s called, during the ‘Full Moon’ it can give you an energy boost!

4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.

The ‘Full Moon’ pours out so much energy, that meditating during one can create a calm and still energy that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a ‘Full Moon’, so look for spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be a very powerful healing and manifest work.

5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.

Having this powerful energy at your disposal makes a ‘Full Moon’ the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light and energy out… out to everyone, you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world (which we need more than ever), think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need.

Whatever you believe in or faith you might have you can’t deny the way you feel during a ‘Full Moon,’ so at the very least take one small step from your heart and try to work with this energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!

Full Moon Ahead!

There’s a beautiful Full Moon building up energy that will come together on Sunday, August 26, in the sign of the fish, Pisces. There are also at least five other more harmonious planet connections around the same time, and they are aligning with a couple of fortunate Stars! Under these Cosmic influences, it should be a good time to learn how to develop your own intuition and psychic abilities. Find some tools to assist you, like gemstones that activate the third eye or special oils to wear for example. All of these tools can assist you during the Full Moon and help you work with the energies. And often just lighting a candle, holding your favorite gemstone, while writing down what you wish to release or let go of can work the best.

Ask the Universe to help you develop and expand your own special unique gifts and talents. Did you know we all have our very own set of gifts, some folks are aware of them and might call themselves an Empath, Psychic, or Clairvoyant? But all of those labels are just how you connect to the Universe and its energies, really. If you are one who isn’t aware of your special psychic gifts you might be blocked up in some way due to learning how to survive life and simply not remembering that they are part of your very own spirit.

Some Good News! 
A lovely “Grand Trine” in Earth signs will be coming together on August 25, this lovely aspect is when the Sun in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus all work together. This energy can help us stay very grounded, practical, and stable. But this energy can also make you feel almost too grounded and sort of heavy, this will pass quite quickly. On August 26, the Full Moon will mesh well with this Grand Trine energy. Finally, there’s a shift and things start to make sense again, and any doors or windows that were closed will start be opening!

This particular Full Moon is great for working with our finances and for making money, or just seeing some dreams come true. Some folks will get the answers they have been looking for and there’s going to be some exciting opportunities for both personal and professional successes that can help you set up some kind of financial security for your future. A whole lot of folks are already actively looking and applying for new jobs this month and this will help a lot of you find new work which brings in a stronger sense of security.

Pay attention and look for the opportunities that present themselves over the last week of August, as this Full Moon in Pisces can help you improve something about yourself, or in your important relationships, and in life in general. The success will probably come through these new opportunities that will eventually turn into wealth and security!

This energy is amazingly strong for attracting all kind of prosperity. So make sure to Set Intentions, make out wish lists, or do some kind of ritual around this Full Moon, and call it in!! I highly suggest starting soon so you can do some sort of daily ritual to call in this energy to you, just do something proactive to draw money to you! One example is to write yourself a Check and place it under a crystal of some kind, everyone is different so I am not going to suggest one certain kind of crystal or gemstone, you go by how you feel. Leave it up until some kind of financial blessing shows up.

I do suggest, however, that you start working with this energy during the time when the Moon is increasing in light, rather than decreasing in light. So you will want to start from the New to the Full Moon, which if you are reading this on August 21st, is from now until the Full Moon. This way, when you plant your seeds of intention, they can begin to sprout and as the light increases slowly until it becomes a Full Moon, and so will the energy of your wishes!

A Look Ahead!
The day after the Full Moon, we will see fiery Mars goes direct.
It’s been Retrograde for months now, everyone is going to feel this shift in energy, and it can be either very positive or a very strong hit so to speak, so pay attention because big things are happening folks! As Mars slows down it’s going to stir people up, and some of the people are going to feel their emotions in an unhinged sort of way, and that can bring something to an end! Expect for folks to let out their pent-up anger and frustrations. Some of you may really want to start a fight of some kind, so watch for confrontations from out of the blue, they could get super serious fast. Our emotions have been suppressed or stuffed away for a while now and let all that out could easily be blamed on the upcoming Full Moon on Sunday and it’s build up this week.

But a lot of the cause for the anger is actually Mars coming out of Retrograde, and really us being able to finally express ourselves, it’s like deflating a balloon. It’s the calm before the storm, as this explosive energy can come out with a bang and then a strong sense of calm will wash over you afterward. If you are an Aries or have strong Aries or Scorpio placements in your Astrology Birth Chart, you need to be especially careful of what you say! You could easily explode!!

Solar Eclipse/New Moon Information and More!
By Rubys Readings

The Solar Eclipse is Getting Closer occurring on August 11th

The beauty of this upcoming New Moon/Solar Eclipse is that whatever you ask for or visualize just might show up by the Full Moon August 26th. This doesn’t always happen, sometimes things take time. But this energy is different and some folks are going to see their desires and wishes come true right away. So remember the night before the New and Full Moon’s this month make out some sort of lists or offerings, whatever you want or do and ask the Universe for what you truly desire. “Set Intentions”, and if you don’t know how just click this link to learn more: https://goo.gl/MGrXfD

The Big Eclipse in Leo is at 18 degrees on August 11th

How will the Eclipse energy affect your life?

This is next weekend folks, it’s a great time to manifest your hopes, wishes, and dreams. Set those intentions, please! Maybe say a prayer, mantra, or blessing, or several if the mood strikes. Depending on where this New Moon Eclipse falls in your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart”, is where the Eclipse influence will affect you for the next six months. If you’d like an “Eclipse Reading” with me, so we can discuss it, get a hold of me and just ask how to purchase an “Eclipse Reading.”

I will do all the necessary research into your own Chart and get it all ready to discuss. A New Moon’s influence usually last for about a month, but a Solar Eclipse can last for up to six months, so expect some changes to occur into the next year.

Solar Eclipse time table – August 11th

Do your Setting Intentions work around these times or before you go to bed the night before, or as soon as you get up that morning. Just make yourself do it!

Heads Up! 
Mercury Goes Out of Retrograde on August 19th and Goes Direct once again HOORAY!!

Mercury the planet of communication, ruler of our thinking processes turns direct, and a plan will finally start to come together! Now is the time to incorporate all that you’ve have learned during its Retrograde cycle, so if you have been thinking about or reviewing something important since July 25th (or a few weeks prior), when Mercury turned Retrograde, and you have used this time wisely now you can proceed with fewer obstacles and get on the right path, because you are informed and have a more realistic understanding about where you stand and what you need to be doing in order to be successful. With all the knowledge you now have, you are just better prepared and ready to make important decisions about your life.

Still, keep in mind that Mercury’s change in direction occurs also close to the time when the Solar Eclipse/New Moon occurs. So the atmosphere will be unstable and things are in flux and often changes just happen. Don’t let yourself lose it and overreact to whatever it is you learn or hear during this time, because everything is still a bit confusing until Mercury is back at its normal pace around the first week of September. Just take your time before you respond to anyone or react.

Good News! 
Jupiter makes a beautiful Trine to Neptune also August 19th

This is going to help increase and even enhance your psychic abilities. So it’s a great time to open up your third-eye. This energy can help us embark on a new spiritual journey, it’s a fresh start or new beginning. It helps us to awaken our spirit and see the truth. Great day to make some sort of spiritual quest. And for getting a Psychic Reading hint hint!

As Jupiter in powerful Scorpio makes a beautiful Trine to spiritual Neptune in holistic Pisces, someone is in a position to help you, and more than likely will. If you can also be that person of assistance to someone else then do it or help with a cause near and dear to your heart. This amazing planet combination in Water Signs can bring about great empathy across the board, but it also can help increase your feelings and bring emotional overload! All of you who believe yourselves to be Empaths, Sensitives, Healers, or Psychics please make sure to put an energetic shield of protections up, as you can absorb way too much energy during this time and get burnt out fast! And make sure you are tending to your own personal needs while helping others.

Any expressions of love, including romance, can find happier conclusions during this time, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get everything you think you need or want, but the outcome will be happier in the long run whatever happens. Emotionally, the energy will be warmer but not fiery, so we don’t get burnt up. It’s a good time to express yourself in an artistic way, so take in live play or concert. And there’s still work to get done, like taking out the trash, that never ends! But do something to relax and have fun, get out but also take some time to meditate when this influence comes in.

Venus Enters Libra

 

VENUS ENTERS LIBRA
By Rubys Readings

Venus is in Libra from August 6-September 9.

The Goddess of Love is shifting gears as it changes signs around the Zodiac Wheel every 5 weeks, and this time it’s landing in the sign it rules, the sign of charm and relationships, Libra! However, this energy can also be rather aggressive (Libra is also believed to be Co-Ruled by Uranus.) In love and money endeavors we will go after what we want during this cycle. But we generally speaking are ready to keep things peaceful and harmonious with our lovers and business partners and just in our life.

You may feel airy and somewhat detached while Venus is in Libra with friends and in life in general, but you can become obsessive about keeping your relationships good, especially your intimate ones and in your business partnerships. We can be quite accommodating with other people period, and more than willing to negotiate and compromise. Which is great for making deals and just getting along better.

Because we are especially idealistic about love under Venus in Libra, we don’t tend to see the issues in our relationships, as we can just ignore them instead and pretend everything is perfectly normal, therefore, we may not see how dependent, inconsistent, or superficial we are acting with our partners. We do not like unkind or shadowy behavior during this time, and it can totally turn us off because we are meant to balance the light and dark energies that are around us. We prefer for things to be done a certain way, and to avoid anything unpleasant we tend to ignore or look over important deeper issues that are playing out in our relationships, as this can be a strong time for denial.

It’s important not to ignore our partners or we can suffer in silence, secretly feeling resentful that nothing is getting addressed or changed. Speak up even if it is uncomfortable, that is breakthrough! Your reluctance will only trap you and then you can end up privately suffering while feeling you are the martyr for doing so. Resentments can build and later come between you and your lover or remember also business partners, once Venus shifts out of Libra in October and into more deeper thinking Scorpio.

This is a time when we appreciate anything that is artistic and beautiful. We can seriously spend some mola if we aren’t careful under these energies, so watch your wallet. We want to change our environment and make it more pleasant and beautiful to look at, especially in our home, as it is our sanctuary under this influence more so than usual, which makes it a great time for redecorating or making home improvements. But don’t forget the Retrogrades planets are at play right now, so we should wait until late August to make any major changes or even early September.

“Time To Take A Look Within”- August 2018 Forecast

August 2018 Forecast
by Ruby

August of 2018 is starting out on an interesting note being smack in the middle of Eclipse Season. The two July Eclipses are behind us now, but there is a third Eclipse – New Moon on August 11 that can change our plans a bit. The atmosphere is still highly charged up by the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27. I will have much more on this later.

But on August 2 we’re dealing with Mars Squaring Uranus! This Square is super powerful and it’s the second one in a series of three, therefore this energy will continue to play out through the end of September. Mars is Retrograde, which causes more frustrations than usual. And with Mars being so close to the planet Earth right now, it’s actually closer than its been in years, so its influence is increased on our lives. This has already brought a lot of fiery energy into our lives, and some folks may feel like they are at a fever pitch! But before you lose your cool, there is a beautiful Trine forming between Jupiter and Neptune that can help us let go of any anger or resentments we have.

Our minds are quite focused on expressing ourselves more directly and effectively, with Mercury in Retrograde in the sign of Leo, as we look for attention from others. Under this influence, worrying is definitely boring, because our focus in on enjoying life, need I remind you Mercury is Retrograde, and this means we may be worrying as well, especially about our children and relationships. While Mars Squares Uranus the first past of August, you should be extra careful about acting impulsive. Soon after, there’s a Trine connection between Saturn and surprising Uranus, which makes this an ideal time to make some positive changes in our lives. Check yourself and stay focused, as you slowly work towards your long-term goals. This influence can help keep your mind distracted long enough so you may be calm and even patient, then you can plan out things accordingly.

With so many planets moving backward during the month of August, it certainly can be exhausting and intense feeling at times. There’s Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto all Retrograde now, along with Chiron, and soon Uranus will be in Retrograde on August 7. This High Retrograde Season means we are more vulnerable and in a subjective place, as ideas are just being developed. But it can be difficult to be patient with the Sun in Leo pushing us to get into the spotlight!

There’s a partial Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th that will be visible in Northern Europe and North Eastern Asia. This is the third and final Eclipse of this Eclipse season! The Solar Eclipse will mainly be influenced by a connection being made to Mercury while in Retrograde, the main themes will be around thinking, worrying, self-expression, contemplation, discussions, and debates. Watch what you are expressing and verbalizing during that time.

This New Moon Eclipse in the Sign of Leo on August 11th is conjunct or connecting to the asteroid “Pallas-Athena”, and the planet of ideas and communication, Mercury, which is making a tense Square to Jupiter in Scorpio, she is the speaker of our highest and deepest truth! Pallas-Athena is a warrior goddess and can help us find more peaceful ways to resolve disputes due to her feminine wisdom and ability to see overreaching patterns. Currently, her vision is effectively stronger than Jupiter’s, which is in the sign of Scorpio, so this influence has kept our perspective more closed off than usual.

Back on July 25th Mercury went into Retrograde, and on August 18 Mercury will be out of its Retrograde cycle officially, but we still may have to deal with the AFTER Shadow period for about two weeks, so through the first week of September. This is going to open up many doors of opportunity because now we can sign those contracts and start new jobs, and maybe fall in love with whomever we want, at least until Venus goes Retrograde in October, yea I know lol, but life will get moving once again at the end of August.

There is also a beautiful water Trine between Jupiter and Neptune on August 19th, this will be the third and final meeting in this series. The aspect has helped us find more positive perspectives during a very difficult time with all the planets in Retrograde, it’s promoted spiritual growth and will continue to do so through the end of September, as it allows us to release the past.

The Sun enters the earthy sign of Virgo on the 23rd. This helps us to get more grounded and stable as we prepare for the Full Moon. The Sun in Virgo brings in a more sensible way of thinking, as we are more hands-on, you can greatly benefit over the next month once this starts by living simply and being more practical. The Sun in Virgo will also be harmonizing with Uranus and Saturn which are both in Earth Signs forming an amazing Grand Trine in Earth Signs. Regarding our health, pay special attention to your intestinal and digestive issues because Virgo the Virgin rules these areas of the body.

On August 26th, there will be a Full Moon in the sign of Pisces. The brings fantasy and reality together, the spiritual and the material blend, even though these things are completely opposite of each other, boundaries come down and lines get blurred which means separating one from the other will be difficult.  Because this lovely combination of Pisces energy is creative and magical, this energy will bring in a strong harmonious influence. This Full Moon is a time to take the negative patterns and behaviors and balance ourselves out. The Pisces emphasis on this Full Moon will bring out the need to contemplate and relax.

This Full Moon is an opportunity to find what is totally magical about our lives. We should be tapping into our spiritual self through things like meditation, yoga, spiritual exercises, or anything that helps us balance our mind, body, and spirit together, which will allow our plans and lives to flow much more easily.

Have a great August,
~Ruby
