Setting Intentions under the Full Moon!

“Setting Intentions with the Full Moon” 

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever energies you need to let go or do away with, and also what doesn’t serve you anymore. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the good stuff can come in! 

During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open things up, so we can get on the right path in life that helps us bring new and fresh energy.


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. And 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


This is the time when you should have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc!) whatever you believe in! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led down a path towards your dreams and goals during your Setting Intentions rituals.

Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But remember often this kind of work is magical and sometimes the things you want or ask for just show up! The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for helping us see all that has been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth 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 your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in positive energies to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair, it feels safe and secure because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.


Step Two: Set the Atmosphere

Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected to the Universal energy you see tapping into. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools make you feel calm and peaceful. Because that’s the kind of energy you want to bring into your life.


Step Three: Let It Out

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Many try using their electronic devices but it just doesn’t seem to have the same effect. But to each their own. Then you write about what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energies you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the 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. 

It’s important to be patient and allow your work to take ahold during this process. And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always so earth-shattering signs or A-ha moments that show up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard that has some sort of message or meaning for you, look up Animal Totems. You can hear a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you, or see a movie and a scene seems to resonate with you on a deep personal level. Look for signs on everyday life and they just magically appear. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you! Messages and signs are always everywhere for us.

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? What changes would you 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 very closely. Then close your eyes and take some 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 actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this 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. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you 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 we don’t want. 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. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that can of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing! 

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


Happy Full Moon

March 2019 – Monthly Astro Forecast


March is always quite an important month as it’s a huge turning point and brings new fresh energy into our lives. There’s a lot of changes going down this month so we can feel these potent energies strongly. Many of you will continue to move forward and see progress in March, but we must be mindful that we are under Mercury in Retrogrades thumb for the rest of the month. Which makes it a good time to clear out old energies and get organized, so once March is over and we’re in Aries Season, then we can start new projects and follow our dreams with gusto once again. For now, this is a month to prepare and plan.


1st – 4th – Venus Square Uranus 

When Venus makes a tense connection to shocking Uranus, our love relationships stability can be challenged with unexpected desires, urges, or events. But sometimes a challenge is what breathes new life into a relationship. We are going to start to feel this probably around Feb 27th and it can go on through the 4th. There’s an increased need for freedom and excitement, as this influence can test your patience when it comes to a loved one, or it can lead to wandering eyes or outright cheating! If you have been feeling confined, smothered, or just bored then you could end up lashing out in anger, or display some sort of destructive behavior. If you’re in a healthy relationship you shouldn’t have any major drama or problems, especially with an open-minded partner. 

There’s a stronger need to experiment in the bedroom or maybe even on the kitchen table lol, as this influence pumps up our sexual activity, or satisfies a deeper need to increase our stimulation. The more demanding or conservative your partner is the more likely they are to stir up trouble, and you could end up cheating or having an affair! And if you try and resist these urges for change and excitement, and keep your feelings hidden or bottled up under this spontaneous energy, then it is likely your partner or friend, whatever the case may be, will express this energy through some sort of unexpected or sudden action.

Luckily, we aren’t as daring as one might think so we can enjoy entertainment, amusement, and novelties. If you are single you may be attracted to exciting or eccentric people, and maybe those who are more willing to take risks, or who are from a different cultural or ethnic backgrounds. A new romance or a love affair is very possible now, but be careful as these are likely to be brief relationships unless something in your personal Astro Birth Chart indicates otherwise. Let’s also talk about retail therapy, we can end up buying on impulse as shopping can be taken to a whole new level, so watch for spending way too much and for making unnecessary purchases.



5th – Mercury goes Retrograde

Mercury goes into its first Retrograde of 2019, occurring in the sign of Pisces from March 5 – 28, and at 29 degrees, which is the anaretic degree or point of crisis (which tends to be harsher feeling.) This Mercury in Retrograde cycle seems to resurrect old situations or problems that we thought we were done and over with, only for us to have to deal with all over again. This is a time when we need a lot of rest, and to really focus on being kind to one another. Some folks might be quite mean or cruel, but don’t allow yourself to go there, instead focus on compassion. This is a time to make sure and set some healthy boundaries, as we are more susceptible and vulnerable to manipulation and deception, especially during the last part of Mercury in Retrograde in the end of March when Mercury is conjunct Neptune, Pisces ruling planet. This causes our thoughts to be foggy and can make things even more confusing, and it being Retrograde time it will be even stronger than usual. 



6th – New Moon

There will be a healing New Moon on March 6th, in the sign of Pisces, and this influence actually helps us focus on the magic of life and be a little more clear about how to start anything new. But it also brings about emotional uncertainty, as this magical New Moon bestows us with deep magical vibes and helps restore our imagination. During this New Moon take some time to create a sacred space that you can play and zen out in, and perhaps reach some sort of spiritual enchantment that syncs your physical reality and fantasies. Breathe and relax and feel out things, and look for the deeper meaning of it all. This is a time for creators, manifestos, intuitive, sensitives, and healers. New Moons are a time to regenerate, but this is also particularly charming energy due to it being in such close connection to spiritual Neptune, the planet of dreams, mysticism, and inspiration. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by to connect to the possibilities available to you. The veils are very thin still, therefore, it’s easier to discover the magic and use it in your everyday life. Our confidence and energy levels are quite high now so we are being enlightened with wisdom,  so we should use it to our advantage.



6th – Uranus moves into Taurus 

On March 6th, 2019, Uranus moves out of Aries, and into the sign of Taurus.

Uranus is the most exciting planet in the Cosmos, it brings about major energy shifts, and the winds of change are blowing this month when it changes signs into the bull, Taurus, where it will stay for nearly a decade! So there will be a lot of movement happening as we get adjusted to this shift. It encourages us to break down old worn out patterns and outdated structures so we can explore the potential of what could be.

We’re in hot energy right now with Uranus in the anaretic degree of Aries which is called the crisis point. It’s a time to tie up loose ends, as we can feel like starting and finishing things quickly while we have the chance. With Uranus in Taurus and with Uranus in Taurus, we can focus on a whole new shift, a whole new phase, a whole new decade of life. 

Uranus moves very slowly around the Zodiac wheel and spends approximately seven and a half years in each sign. If you pay attention to the effects of Uranus as it goes through each sign, you will see just how unique each of these energies affects the political structures now crumbling to the ground. While Uranus was in the sign of Aries all these years, millions of us started to assert our political beliefs and develop commitments to fighting for the people and causes that are important to us. 


The sign of Taurus rules over money, food, agriculture, and resources. With the planet Uranus in this nurturing sign, we can expect to see major changes in these areas of our lives on both a global and personal level.

This also will affect how we make, spend, and save money. And with all the sneaky nasty agricultural practices going on nowadays, we might start to see some justice finally. As these topics are going to be under a microscope for review for the next seven years. Uranus is going to shake things up and create necessary changes that we all need to continue to survive on this planet. Hopefully, we will see these changes help us all to be healthier for future generations to live on the planet. 



20th – Spring Equinox 

On March 20th, also the day of the Vernal Equinox marks the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This is when the ice and snow finally melt and the ground starts to thaw and Sun shines a little brighter every day. It’s a promise of warmth and abundance to come. With the Sun in Aries on this day, it’s influence sparks the energy we need to get pumped up into high gear and prepare for the excitement that is to come.



20th – Full Moon in Libra 

Also on March 20th the Full Moon in Libra occurs. Under the Full Moon we often find ourselves trying to balance ourselves out emotionally. This time the Moon in Libra and the Sun in Aries oppose each other. So this starts an internal struggle within each of us to equal things out, between how both these energies affect us.

Libra being the sign of partnership is about everyone else’s needs, while Aries is more focused on self and our personal needs. This Full Moon is making a close connection to the “wounded healer” Chiron. This brings up old grievances just enough, that we can feel left out or put second, or we might feel compelled to examine the pain of putting ourselves last just to get other people’s approval.

If you feel any of your old emotional wounds are being triggered, don’t ignore it! Make yourself understand why you feel the way you do, so you can release the old pain. Full Moon’s are an ideal time to liberate yourself from old trauma, anxiety, and old resentments.

So in many ways this month puts us into a state of duality, where we feel a stark contrast between two different kinds of energies that represent what we want, versus what we truly desire. The challenging part will be learning how to embrace each different influence and gaining the wisdom that comes from wanting to know what these lessons are trying to teach us. 


26th —Venus moves into the sign of Pisces, right at the end of the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and tries to help us come out of the Retrograde with greater sensitivity, compassion, intuition, and spirituality. This is a blessing considering how agitating it can be when we are trying to adjust to Mercury’s shift out of Retrograde, as it goes back to its normal speed and pace once again, this is called the Shadow period.


31st – Mars is the planet that motivates us, fuels our passions and drive, and also rules over our sexual activities and how we handle our anger! Mars closes this month out by entering the sign of the twins, Gemini on the 31st. This brings in a surge of energy that affects us more mentally. There can be a stronger than usual interest in all that is intellectual, including our hobbies. We can enjoy communicating with people, especially face to face, by phone, online, or through social media even more so than usual.

We can focus better on new ideas and plans, and can get excited about what we come up with. This influence promotes strong communication, but it can be a whole lot of energy and be over stimulating for some folks. It’s like drinking large amounts of caffeine, and some folks may feel so jacked up that they have trouble relaxing because they can’t turn their minds off, so sleep and insomnia can be an issue under this influence. We may work harder to bring our ideas and plans to life, and actually pursue opportunities that make things happen! 


Enjoy your month and if you need guidance or some clarity please get with me about a Reading Session.

Sun Enters Sagittarius!

By Rubys Readings

The Sun entered the sign of Sagittarius on November 22nd, and this affects all of us, so all Zodiac Signs!

Our focus shifts and there’s a stronger desire to reach out and connect and with something larger than ourselves. With the Sun in this fiery mutable sign, we can take steps now to increase our understanding and awareness of the world around us for the next month. Our courage is stronger than usual and we want to go beyond our normal boundaries and expand our horizons, as we dive into new ways of thinking!

With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need to make intimate connections with others, to being more focused on having more of an adventure, even if its just one in our minds, but it must have some kind of meaning. We want to connect to something larger than what we have during this influence.

A lot of you will feel more confident during this time, which helps us feel more optimistic and motivated. 

While the Sun was in Scorpio over the last month so from October through November, we were so focused on all the damn details that it became overwhelming for some folks, but that was also due to mental Mercury being in Scorpio nearly the whole time as well.

Now both Mercury and the Sun are in the sign of Sagittarius which does help us go beyond our normal ways of thinking and focus on the bigger picture. But we tend to overdo things including setting way too high expectations! We have a stronger desire to express ourselves and can naturally just talk out loud about what we’re thinking and feeling! Think before you speak if, at all possible, there’s a lot of misunderstandings in the air right now due to mental Mercury in Sagittarius being Retrograde.

You do, however, have an opportunity to nurture your faith, hope, and visions for the future under these influences, so through Dec 23rd. Take advantage of it, and be advised, watch your mouth, think before you speak, and if you get overly frustrated then take a time out and don’t express it out loud right away, or at least not until you have thought things through, or you can ruin relationships and upset people without even trying. So take it easy and enjoy this time and go on an adventure somewhere and let loose a little when you can. Take this higher vibrational energy and believe in all that is possible, because you just might get something you really want or need.
