New Moon in Aries
April 15, 2018

On Sunday evening, April 15th the New Moon occurs in the Sign of Aries!

This means you have an opportunity to tap into your creative and courageous side, so take some time starting now to write your Intentions or Wishes down during this New Moon, and see what it is exactly that ignites the fire inside you! This will help you move forward in life. This is a time of inspiration, so you should be focused on what you’d like to create next in your life so you can make your dreams a reality!

New Moon’s are a time of opportunity, and when something new can begin.

This particular New Moon is in fiery Aries, so it is quite strong and potent. This is actually the first New Moon of the “Astrological” New Year, which started on March 20 during the Spring Equinox.

Uranus the messenger and this New Moon both in Aries, make a connection that certainly can liven things up!

Our freedom and sense of independence become more important than usual. Certain generations are being affected quite strongly by the planet of revolution and freedom, Uranus already! This is why there’s such a strong resistance movement underway. And therefore some of you have already been experiencing a surge of energy, that’s pushing you to get out there and fight for certain causes no matter the cost. You need your freedom and space to do things your way!

During this New Moon, some folks can get quite a wake-up call!

This is a sudden awareness about your true calling, destiny, or higher purpose in life. Therefore it can bring in some challenges, but this can help you move past your fears and insecurities, so you’ll take a risk, a leap of faith perhaps, and go after what it is you truly want or desire! The Uranian influence surrounding this New Moon makes it much easier to surrender the ego-driven part of ourselves that doesn’t allow us to just flow with unexpected events so this can help us learn how to change. This particular New Moon is trying to teach us how to be excited about our path in life, and how to follow our passion and trust the Universe enough to let go of any control we think we have and surrender.

The Sun in Aries this month helps strengthen our willpower and desire.

The sign of Aries is part of each and every one of us, (all the Signs of the Zodiac are actually in our Astrology Birth Charts). Aries energy is known for being a Trailblazer that creates a spark. This is a gift from the Cosmos that helps stir up our passions, which creates the fire inside us to move forward and manifest something hopefully new and exciting! If we learn how to handle this New Moon energy with respect and make more positive changes, hopefully, we’ll experience some major transformations.

Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Aries currently, and it goes Direct from being Retrograde on the same day as the New Moon!

Hooray! This is a sign that we can get moving forward again in some area of our life. Since March 22nd (and even back in February during the shadow Retrograde phase), we have been slowed down! As annoying as Mercury in Retrograde can be, it has been trying to help us reconnect with our deepest desires, as it’s brought up the past to learn from through both people and situations. Mercury wants us to unplug from the world and reconnect with ourselves, so we can come out of it renewed and refreshed, but it is challenging living in the time of technology and information. There’s an opportunity to move forward now since we have a new perspective as mental Mercury stations or comes to a stop to move forward and out of Retrograde!

Also, Mercury is meeting up with Chiron the Wounded Healer, which is in its last degree of Pisces.

Chiron is about to shift signs and move into the sign of Aries for the first time in 49 yrs on April 17th! With Chiron in Aries, we take an on our emotional wounds like Warriors, and are no longer going to be in the mood to feel victimized or held down by our pain! This new Chiron energy coming in can help us move away from our trauma like never before. So get ready folks it’s time to heal in a big way!

The sign of Aries is ruled by passionate Mars!

This reminds us to work on ourselves by doing something brave that helps us to be more true to who we are as individuals. Mars is currently in the sign of Capricorn, which helps us to be more focused, disciplined, and willing to use the Aries fire so we can move forward in the right direction and therefore be more productive.

There’s a very strong Saturn influence hanging over this New Moon as well.

Saturn’s influence helps us to be less impatient and impulsive and work on being more strategic and work on long-term planning. On the other side of these energies, we don’t want to let our fears or insecurities stop us from being brave enough to take action. So to make this a successful New Moon we should blend the Aries and Capricorn energies together by taking strategic risks, putting in the time to do the work, and trusting the process the Universe puts us through, no matter what that looks like.

Mercury Retrograde in Aries

Mercury Retrograde in Aries
By Ruby

March 22nd – April 15th

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Setting Intentions” & the Full Moon”

Standard

 

“Setting Intentions” & the Full Moon”
By Ruby 

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to bless and release whatever you need to let go of, and do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires by helping you release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out for good now.

During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift. So we must release the old energies to be open for the new energies that will be coming in.

What to Release under a Full Moon:

* Lower energies

* Negative patterns or bad habits* Unhealthy situations or relationships

What to work on during the Full Moon:

*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore (sometimes it is just an attitude or thought)

*Clearing space for new energies to come in

*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be

Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to allow the time needed for your guides to light the way, it doesn’t always happen right away, but sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truths to be revealed during this time. 

What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the “Full Moon.”
Follow the steps below to learn how:

Step One: Clear your Sacred Space

Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do Full Moon work in. You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply …and call your Guides, Angels, or higher-power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared of any negative energy, and then to fill it up with the energy of love and light. (Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it.)

Step Two: Set the Atmosphere

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

Step Three: Setting Intentions with the Full Moon energy

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work at. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfortable in your favorite chair, not only because it feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.

Next, you will write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy you’re trying to let go of and release. Write your letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard. Don’t forget to leave room for the energies to shift, change and mold what you’re creating. Sometimes these things take time, but you also may want to learn how to hear the messages or receive signs from the Universe, usually it’s a very subtle energy. But over time usually, your questions will be answered. 

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about … for example; Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life and what changes you would like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.

Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating

Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest (not your pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that great Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Don’t just think about it, now make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing. So if it makes you laugh, cry, scream or whatever, then go with it.

Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. Which looks like you filling that space up with gratitude for what you do have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things you don’t have. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart, Ask yourself what makes you happy that is in your life right now! That way you are attracted more of that kind of “feeling” which will bring in more of the good feeling kind of energy, and that can make you way happier than getting all wrapped up in what isn’t in your life or being held captive by your pains and traumas. 

Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next 30 days, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore.

Have a safe and blessed Full Moon

Full Moon in Aries 

Standard

Full Moon in Aries 

October 2017

The Full Moon each month is when we hit an emotional peak, so our emotions are running high and hot during this one folks! On October 5th, the Full Moon in Aries comes together, Aries is a fire sign that’s associated with passion, anger, and overall intensity! And the Full Moon always heightens how we are feeling! So you get the picture here? This energy has been building all week, hence the intense powerful feelings that have been running around.

This Full Moon can help reawaken those of you who have been feeling down, depressed, or lacking in energy and/or vitality. As the Sun and Moon make this fiery conjunction it can help wake us up and gets us out of our stuckness and clear any stagnant energy we’ve been experiencing. Under this Full Moon, we will need to make up our minds about something, and move towards what inspires, ignites, and re-aligns our soul.

This Full Moon is in a tense square to deeper and darker Pluto just recently out of Retrograde. So this brings out the shadow side of our existence, and our core wounds usually caused by some kind of past trauma.  Because our patience is wearing thin we are easily triggered, so small irritations can turn quickly into bigger arguments. This energy has already been and will continue to be explosive, therefore it can be difficult to control ourselves and our reactions.

If you really want to learn something from this Full Moon, and you start to get frustrated then try to understand the deeper truth to as why you are angry. Here’s a hint, anger is usually just deep-seated fear being expressed. Ask yourself what you’re really afraid of! You can feel pumped up and go to the point of extremes. Watch for manipulative behavior, abuse of power, and for people trying to control your behavior. Especially, in our relationships with mental Mercury in Libra opposing this Full Moon!

Please be advised this energy can get quite volatile, as it already has proven itself these last week! There will be misunderstandings that turn into arguments because we have such intense reactions.

This Full Moon is a tense meeting between the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries, this is the “self” and “others,” we need to find ways to balance out how we take care of ourselves and the other people’s needs in our life, especially in our relationships. If you are allowing others to push you around, the scales are out of balance and you’re using too much Libra energy. We must express our needs and desires to keep the peace. It’s a time to be clear and precise about how we feel, don’t allow yourself to jump to conclusions and become irrational or impulsive under this blazing Aries energy.

To work under this Full Moon you’ll need to be mindful and patient, dedicated, and skillfully planning your timing. Saturn brings a wake-up call or reality check around what is working in your life and within your relationships. It also puts focus on how we are taking care of ourselves, our bodies, and personal environment or space.

We’re still under the final tense meeting of Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries energy. This final hooray magnifies the revolutionary power of the Full Moon, we can find personal growth through travel, education, and relationships as long as we take care of our responsibilities. Get creative and discover the most amazing ways to cure your boredom without too many issues or disruptions.

And finally, the “Cosmic Lovers” Venus and Mars make a harmonious Trine to powerful Pluto! This adds some serious intensity and passion to our relationship dynamics, or to whatever brings us happiness and pleasure. This can help us feel more deeply passionate about our loved ones in general, but especially with our partners. This energy is intense but it’s a fun energy for our intimate relations, as we have a strong desire for love and affection. Take this wild, passionate time during the Full Moon and let it motivate you to work harder toward your goals and make your dreams come true.

If you want to learn just how this Full Moon is affecting your life for the next few weeks, and what it means just for you, then Purchase a “Full Moon Report” with me.

I will do the necessary research and send you a detailed report and add in all of Octobers Forecast details just for you! All the information I gather is also based on your own Personal “Astrology Birth Chart,” so it’s not just because you’re Leo, Aries, or whatever Sun Sign, (there’s actually three Decans per sign), and that’s why I can give you details you’re regular Horoscopes can’t tell you! Message or email me for more details! healingruby@yahoo.com 

If you want to “Set Intentions” around the Full Moon, you can start late Wednesday afternoon and you have all the way through late Friday afternoon, that’s two whole days to do any Full Moon energy work you’d like. Take advantage and enjoy it!

MERCURY Goes Direct! 

Standard

Happy Mercury Goes Direct! 
by Ruby

Mercury in Retrograde is finally turning direct today, YAY!

If you don’t follow Astrology, then maybe you should at least read this!

Did you experience the energies feeling off and slowed down, and end up feeling somewhat frustrated and confused over the last month or so? Well, Mercury in Retrograde influence causes electronic glitches and snafus, and strange misunderstandings, as our perspective is skewed. And strange weather events see 24m to occur at the beginning and end of Mercury Retrograde cycles.

Mercury appeared to be heading backward (Retrograde) for the last three weeks, and this has caused some major frustrations, (that wasn’t including the annoying three week period before it’s initial Retro phase, called the “Shadow Period” as it slowed down to enter into it’s Retro. cycle)

Don’t get too excited just yet, as I wouldn’t start anything brand new at this time, and I know many of you are just waiting to initiate something, but this is not a time for conclusions or resolutions, at least not just yet.

Mercury has to now pick up the pace, as it’s going the right way once again and get back to its normal speed, this adjustment period lasts for two weeks. So communications, electronic glitches, and misunderstandings will slowly calm down over the coming days and weeks.

It’s really a one day at a time situation, especially right now, this can actually be the most confusing week of the whole Mercury in Retrograde cycle! So unless you want to have to go back and redo something, again and again, I highly suggest you take things very slowly.

The planet Mercury is known as the “Messenger” of the Zodiac, it rules over how we communicate, think, and process information.

Mercury in Retrograde helps us to better understand and discover some important truths as well. The past has shown up in one way or another for a reason, and that is to help us see things from a different perspective, or in a different way. This is so we can be far away enough from a past situation to gain clarity. Then we can make better choices that lead us on to a new path that is more fit for what it is we truly want and desire, once Mercury is headed the right way again.

Hindsight is 20/20!

In hindsight things are obvious that were not obvious from the outset; one is able to evaluate past choices more clearly than at the time of the choice.

What we should be doing now that Mercury is headed in the right direction, is wrap up any old business we haven’t yet finished, so soon we can start something new and fresh. If you don’t want to get held up or back again then it’s best to wait it out and take things slowly over the next few weeks, and towards mid-May, you can start new projects and adventures, like a new job or relationship.

It’s also a great time to take all that information you gathered during Mercury in Retrograde and sort through it. Start planning out specific goals, clear out spaces, and get organized. Prepare for your future success story!

During Mercury’s Retrograde phase we had an opportunity to review our lives from a new perspective. Which makes it a good time to focus on what we have learned and observed. And soon enough we’ll  be able to use that information to help move forward again.

Hopefully, over the next few weeks, whatever problems we encountered during Mercury’s Retro cycle will start to clear up.

But today’s energies can feel way off balance, and a little slowed down. There’s a whole bunch of information coming in now that can flood our minds. This can be confusing to make sense of it all right now.

So I suggest to not make any major changes or decisions just yet, as I can’t stress that enough! Our thinking is still somewhat off and there’s information we haven’t even got yet to take into consideration. 

Give Mercury time to get back to its normal pace, and enjoy that it’s nearly over for now. Until late August, but I highly doubt you want me to discuss that one just yet, lol.

“Love On Fire Part 2? – Venus in Aries”

Standard

Fri, April 28th

“Love On Fire Part 2? – Venus in Aries”

Has your love life been topsy-turvy? This is for all the Sun signs of the Zodiac!

Venus is moving once again into fiery Aries from April 28-June 6

The Goddess of Love, Venus was already in fiery Aries a few months ago, but she shifted back into the sensitive waters of Pisces during her Retrograde phase in April, and this did help us learn to have compassion for one another more so, but now she’s back in Aries once again and our love lives and financial dealings are going to heat up!

If you’re curious how Venus in Aries will affect your relationships now or again, just think back to last February through the beginning of April. Our relationships and finances were shaken up in a major way by Venus’s Retrograde cycle, as many of you quit or lost jobs and there were lots of breakups!

But now that we and our relationships have come out of that intense cycle of psychotherapy, it’s time to make a decision around our relationships, and ask ourselves if we stay in them and work together to mend, or is it simply time to let go and start anew. This applies to our business relationships and financial endeavors as well!

Last week, Venus started heading back the right way and out of, it’s Retrograde cycle, thank goodness!

Venus in Aries energy brings love on quickly! In relationships, both new or old this energy is direct and spontaneous. People want to chase and hunt each other under this very exciting fiery influence. When it comes to matters of the heart we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and a little more impatient. This influence brings out the part of ourselves that desires beauty, success, indulgences, and valuables.

Even though we feel like being more direct than usual in our relationships, there are those folks who let’s just say will be more reserved, and actually held back because they’re not too sure if the other person shares the same feelings, so some of you would rather be alone. Love can become challenging if your confidence gets too low and you might become more strategic, stealth, or sneaky in love, which can become very unhealthy by the way!

Normally, under this Aries energy, we don’t look back in regards to our relationships. Each day is new and full of opportunities, and each moment matters. We’re not interested so much in apologies or dwelling in the past. We enjoy the chase and the conquest of it all.

Relationships of all kinds will start fast and furious during this cycle, but also may end very abruptly, so it’s important to make yourself slow down and pay attention if you’re looking for something long-term, and if that’s not the case than just have some fun. Mars the planet of passion and sex rules Aries after all, so it’s time to get physical in your relationships, chase each other around the house naked, go out on wild dates doing things that are thrilling that you’ve never done before, get the blood pumping sort of speak back into your relationships and enjoy each other!

With Venus in Aries once again, our long-term relationships can be rejuvenated. But only if they stay exciting and fresh to some degree, but this energy can certainly put the spark back in our relationships and make it a love affair again. Unless you are only together for financial stability, which is more common than you think, then work on strengthening the bond you have together.

With Venus in Aries, we say how we feel out-loud and don’t bother sugar coating things. “Saying it like it is” is more important at this time. Our desires are strongly expressed and are more spontaneous, direct, and enthusiastic. We aren’t necessarily trying to be mean in this energy, but we speak our minds and for some that can be difficult to handle.

And we prefer to seduce rather than be seduced, to chase than to be chased. We are in charge and in control, so we say what goes in our relationships now, this can be a bit overbearing for our partners, however, and we can also easily chase folks away if we’re not careful.

Mercury’s Slow Down 

Standard

Rubys Astro Readings

April 2017 

“Mercury’s Slow Down”

Mercury the planet that rules over your thinking and how you communicate is shifting today into more slowed down, grounded Taurus, and again this affects every single sign in the zodiac. Mercury will transit the sign of the bull sign until April 20th! Also, Mercury is preparing now to go into its Retrograde cycle and under this sign things can seem very slow moving and even at a snails pace. Which can be frustrating for all of you, since we’ve been in the strong Aries energy for awhile now and life has been busy! It’s going to take time to adjust to this new more slowed down and “look at the roses” kind of energy. 
Mercury will remind Taurus through April 20th, but will shift back into Aries on the 21st due to its Retrograde phase, therefore Mercury will return to Taurus from May 16th-June 6th right after a Retrograde period in Aries. So we’re going to be dealing with this energy for a extended amount of time. 

With Mercury in Taurus, you will take things more slowly and the energies come down a notch as you can feel more down to earth, stable, and grounded. Good old-fashioned common sense takes ahold. When you do communicate it is with intention and purpose, as the reality of any given situation is important. Your mind is connected very strongly to the five senses and the world around you under this influence. You tend to stick to what you know has worked in the past, so what is tried and true instead of trying new ways of thinking and communicating.

You are more serious in this energy, at least in what you think, and there is a reluctance to try a new technique since you are more comfortable with what already works. You do best connecting with one person rather than a crowd, and meaningful discussions can make your heart happy. This is a time for addressing any problems that exist with someone, and that also means anything fun that does happen tends to lack any shocks or surprises. Taurus mental energy for all of us is not flashy or showy at all, but can make you feel more demanding of certain peoples attention, especially if they are familiar or close family or friends. 

While you show level-headedness in all business that you do during this cycle, you sometimes can miss certain opportunities because you are slow to respond. You are at your best when focused on important matters at work, and you may have difficulty with too many decisions. This isn’t a good time to multi-task, but it is good for researching possibilities and for perfecting certain skills. And hopefully climbing the corporate ladder if that’s a goal you have, remember it’s slow and steady for now, but at least you’ll be making momentum. 

Your attention is given to one thing at a time as you can stay more focused and this can help keep things simple, but you must be careful of being to closed off and narrow-minded, and possibly overly conservative and even rigid in your way of thinking. You’re heart is usually more open during this cycle, so work on loving yourself more, it’s just you may have to remind yourself of this from time to time.
