The relationship planet Venus enters the sign of communication Gemini today, where it will transit for much longer than usual due to its upcoming Retrograde phase! Venus is in Gemini all the way through August 7th. During this time Venus will go Retrograde in Gemini from May 13 to June 25.
With Venus in Gemini, our curiosity is strong, and this can motivate us to get more involved romantically and socially with others. Variety and change are the main themes of this influence, it’s a time when we feel more sociable, interested, engaged, and especially communicative in our relationships and around anything to do with our finances.
We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the linesin any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity.
Under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity both, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow, this keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects ourlove lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky. But due to the Virus going around, we need to be extra careful about meeting people in person for the time being, and this might be extremely challenging.
Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies. But we can feel very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time. So you may want to be extra cautious with taking on lovers, friends cans family members emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks! This is going to be extra challenging as well, since we are in the middle of a Pandemic right now. We need to keep a degree of compassion going to help those in need, but be able to stay in our own power and not meltdown, so we can take care of those we need us!
It is a good time to connect intellectually with others, but especially in our intimate relationships and with our partners, as we uniquely feel each other’s energies. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep things above the surface which can be helpful during this hard time.
Emotionally we can be somewhat detached or distant, but we want to enjoy ourselves. When it comes to love we are more attracted to someone’s mind, so words are usually how things spark up between two people. We just bond with people more on a mental level, and we respect good conversations and intelligent work. But we can be quite picky when it comes to showing our affections and enjoying simple pleasures.
This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky with the people we meet up with, and not just get it on with anyone who’s willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore. And remember social distancing folks.
Venus also rules over money it finances, and there are two sides to the sign of the twins, so Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We can be cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like with movies, books, apps online, music, and any writing materials. So even when money is low we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend. Communication is key under these energies.
The Cosmic energies have been rather interesting, to say the least, but it’s just a sign of the times. For right now all the planets are moving forward, so we are not totally stuck even though we may feel like it, especially when it comes to defeating the Coronavirus. The planets are actually supporting us now and all of our efforts. But there are still rough times ahead, but just know all the things people are doing to combat this situation is going to make a difference in time, even if we don’t see any major changes just yet. But if we look at China so far, it is encouraging as folks see starting to do life again with a small degree of normalcy. Even though the US and Italy seem to still be peaking extremely frustrating! However, there is a light at the end of this tunnel, and it will grow bigger and eventually things will get better! Keep your distance from others and stay safe.
The strong Saturn-Pluto Conjunction that slowly started building energy last Winter, and peaked January 12th, was already sounding the alarm that there was going to be some major events taking place that could disrupt our lives, especially if we didn’t make some changes fast! But it was already too late. We’ve seen what happened in the past when these two heavy-hitting planets tensely squared up in long-term cosmic connections, and one thing it always seems to do is bring about some sort of major illness. This influence restricts us and purges us. Even though Astrologers didn’t know exactly how this influence was going to go down, it’s now grown out of control. But look at all the amazing stories of people helping each other, and all the lives that have been saved as well! It would be such a sad thing if we just focused on the negative and the loss. Yes, we must continue to honor those we have lost, and fight, be a voice for those who are sick now and need our help. Please continue to practice social distancing as we keep being told, at this time it is the only way to combat the Virus! Please stay home as much as possible for the time being.
For now, there are still so many planets in the sign of Capricorn like Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and the Moon’s South Node Destiny Point. This creates an energy that breaks structures down, everything from businesses to relationships, and our own fears are being brought out psychologically to work through. We are basically being made to rebuild any structures that are weak in any part of our lives, so this can be in our relationships, business, and it can be even about our attitude, as we holding on to outdated beliefs and behaviors. It’s time to make changes and to question yourself. Then we can create more solid foundations. All of this Capricorn energy affects governments, hospitals, schools, and large organizations. The Cosmos is making sure things are restructured and re-organized, and this theme will continue to go on through November of 2020. There will be continued economic shakiness for the rest of the year due to this influence, but it all won’t be necessarily as bad as it is now, but we will have to remain patient to come back from this.
The end result of the COVID-19 Virus outbreak is the economy will be more sustainable, and that means stability at both home and work once folks are back to working and doing life again. There will and have already been many positive things that will come from these challenging times. But for now, while we are in the process of changing the old worn-out structures around us, we should expect challenges when it comes to employment and business. This can continue to be an issue through June at the least. Hopefully, we will return to some sort of normal life but make no mistake, we are forever changed in many ways as well. There also will be some massive changes that start back up again in November, and no one is too sure how it will play out, or if it will be anything like the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction energy we have been dealing with. But I will explain that influence later.
Saturn entered more future-oriented Aquarius March 22nd, this is the age of Aquarius. The song made it seem so much nicer, lol! This is a brand new Karmic path we have landed on, which means each of us individually is affected differently. But no matter what part of our lives are being restructured, one thing is for certain, it’s not started off too easy!
Since we just went through the New Moon energy last week, we should be putting a plan together. One that entails how we can deal better with what is happening in the world right now, and for the next month. Make your plans personal. It’s time to be taking things day by day. And if you Set Intentions or work with the energies of the Moon then start making out plans month to month, or New Moon to New Moon, which is the time of the month we should be focusing on what we want to create or manifest in our lives, as it is the time for new beginnings.
Important To all you Health Workers of any kind, you are the healers of the world right now! And to all the energy and lightworkers reading this message this is also for you, and to the spiritual teachers, leaders, Psychic’s, and Intuitives. This whole COVID-19 Virus is an opportunity for you to teach and share the knowledge you already have learned with the world.

It can benefit your life and the lives of so many others. Don’t be afraid to speak up and share online or via social media what your thoughts are. We need all of you more than ever! And thank you for being so brave to help others during this difficult time. We appreciate you so much.
Astrology Notes for the rest of March
March 28 – 30 – The Good Stuff
Finally some good news! This weekend a great time to come up with something innovative, it’s a time when we have many creative ideas and solutions when it comes to making financial gains or money.
Venus Trine Jupiter
This lovely Cosmic pair up brings gifts and can bring in financial gains. So some finally good news around money! This started coming together Friday, and the new stimulus package, (and I realize it’s not nearly enough for so many and doesn’t cover some of the things we need right now, especially medically) it is a start. This can be an especially lucky and abundant time. Some of the Earth-Sun signs like Capricorn and Taurus can be extra lucky during these few days.
Venus Trine Pluto – Love Rules
This is an especially strong time to build trust in already existing relationships and friendships. You can find yourself bonding strongly with someone new as well. We must keep our distance right now, and continue social distancing to stop the Virus, luckily technology is on our side right now. We can chat and text our loved ones. Spend more time in one way or another with the people you love, safely during this time. This is a good energy to reconnect in, as many of you are probably already doing.
March 30 – May 13 – Mars Enters Aquarius
Mars the planet of motivation, drive, sex, and war shifts into the sign of Aquarius. And we are ready to be more social than usual, which is good to help each other. But remember social distancing folks! Take it seriously, it’s a very real thing. There’s going to be a stronger urge than usual to socially interact with others, and our friendships will be more important also. Stay connected however you can just be safe!
This is also a good cycle for humanitarian work to be developed and organized, which we so desperately need. This is not a lazy kind of energy at all, we are more motivated to help each other. This is a time when we can create products or services, or invent something that helps humankind! So get creative and allow those innovative ideas to flow and come to the surface. As they will be strong and should be shared with others.
March 31 – Mars Conjuncts Saturn
This connection is more difficult at times. Stay away from social media and the news on this day! Don’t let the negative thoughts take over and bring you down. It’s more important than ever to raise your vibrations and to keep grounded, this helps us keep things calmer if possible, which can assist us in saving lives, and keeping people more stabilized as we go through this strong time of loss.
Hang in there folks, we are all in this together. And stay safe and be well. Love & Light ~Ruby

March Astro 2020 Monthly Forecast
March 3: Venus Squares Saturn Our relationships can be challenged and tested, as reality checks our served during this time about our feelings for others and how they feel about us! What we see in other people isn’t always what we get! It’s important to make sure we keep things real around this time, so be honest because fake simply won’t do. And if you realize something or someone isn’t working out so well, perhaps it’s time to think about letting it go.
March 4: Mercury Enters Aquarius in Retrograde On February 16th, Mercury the messenger of the Zodiac turned Retrograde (appears to move backward) in the sign of Pisces. But now Mercury shifts into more free-spirited Aquarius, and this brings in a new fresher kind of energy that helps lift our point of view. It’s a good time to go over and review our conversations and think about our options. Take a break from making any important decisions at this time, as mistakes are made more often. Making pros and cons lists can help us make up our minds when it comes to more complicated decisions. Stay away from buying anything that has to do with communication like smartphones or computers. Keep track of receipts and important paperwork for later, and avoid signing contracts or making long-term commitments at this time. During Mercury’s illusionary backward dance we should be reviewing our life, but wait it out when it comes to making important decisions until after Mercury turns direct from Retrograde on March 9th.
March 4: Venus enters Taurus Venus rules over its home sign of Taurus, and affects our money and relationships. Money matters are more important now, but we are more focused on how money impacts our close relationships. This is a good time to discuss money matters with partners, family members, and business partners. We should be paying more attention to our finances, and maybe set some money back for a special purpose or just a rainy day. It’s a good time to plan out future endeavors, but try not to act just yet! It’s all too easy to buy more luxurious expensive things during this time. With Mercury in Retrograde until the 9th, it’s just best to wait. Unless you want to deal with a mess later.
March 8: Sun conjuncts Neptune The Sun in the sign of Pisces joins up with spiritual Neptune. This influence is trying to teach us to have more faith in ourselves and the Universe, so we should be connecting to our intuition and following our gut instincts. This is the right energy for being creative and using our imagination, as it can lead to success. This is a time of idealism, dreams, and spirituality. It might be more difficult keeping your feet on the ground with your head in the stars.
March 8: Venus conjuncts Uranus This is a highly charged up energy, one that can make us feel quite happy and sparkly. Expect the unexpected, especially in your relationships and around your finances. We can meet someone randomly who is captivating. There’s a strong desire to change something or to mix something up in our relationships, business, or work. Give the ones you love some space, it actually will help bring you closer together under this energy.
March 9: Full “Super” Moon in Virgo This Full Moon is focused on the details of our lives. But we should put our time and attention on being practical and taking care of the basics. This energy can be quite draining, so make sure and get enough sleep, and plenty of exercises and eat healthy food. It’s important to be building up our immunity.
If we make an effort to connect to this powerful Pisces energy, it can help us learn how to work with our intuition, which can help us make better choices in our life.
Full Moons are about endings, so it’s a good time to take care of unfinished business. Clear out old and cluttered space and negative energy! We will need every drop of our energy and attention to take advantage of the fiery New Moon in Aries on March 24th, which is about new beginnings.
March 9: Mercury Retrograde Goes Direct! Even though this time is usually annoying so it seems with electronic glitches and snafus, Mercury in Retrograde can also be a time to gather information, and review past thoughts and conversations to learn something new or better.
Over the last three weeks hopefully while the planet of communication, Mercury was Retrograding you took some time to review your life, and plan out your next moves more carefully. If you waited patiently to make important decisions, your effort will be rewarded. So don’t worry about expressing what you need now. Get out there and network, reach out to others who are in a position to help you, for example with that job you want, or with that guy/gal you really are crushing on, or if your planning something. This is the time to start communicating all that you’ve learned while Mercury was in Retrograde, so you can start to slowly move forward with your plans.
March 11: Sun sextiles Jupiter The ethereal Sun in Pisces connects to Jupiter in practical Capricorn, and our imaginations sync up with our knowledge. This is the feel-good lucky energy we all need, as it can bring in abundance and golden opportunities. But we need to be paying attention to take advantage of this influence and make something happen. We can meet up with people who are inspiring, visionaries, or whom are beneficial to us in some way, and they can help us see things from a new or different perspective. This can make the world look and feel a little bit different, which helps us break old patterns, behaviors, and routines. So get out there and make something happen, and don’t miss this amazing opportunity!
March 14: Mars sextiles Neptune Under this influence we have yet another opportunity, accept this time it’s to move forward with any projects or plans we’ve been working on. Mars the planet of aggression, desire, and action motivates us when it meets up with idealistic and spiritual Neptune. Our imaginations get a major boost of energy, and what we might have thought couldn’t happen seems to have a way of working out usually in a more positive manner. There will suddenly be reinforcements that come to our rescue now. All you have to do is help this energy along, and make the most of the help you are offered. Never turn down a gift from the Universe.
March 14: Sun sextiles Pluto This aspect only occurs twice a year, so we only get a very short period of time to take advantage of it. People of influence or authority will be paying attention now, so those who are in positions of power are more willing to help, so be determined to get their attention. If we do get a chance to connect with someone important we can make progress. And if we already understand the give and take of relationships, we can experience even more success!
March 16: Mercury Re-enters Pisces Our imagination soars when mental Mercury enters the more sensitive waters of Pisces. This is very Psychic, sensitive, and visionary energy. If you can focus on what it is you want, you can use this transit to help you visualize your goals, plans, and dreams through April 11th. It is believed that the Universe doesn’t see this physical reality on Earth as the ultimate truth, so if you think about what you want and then feel it, they don’t know the difference and you can manifest your thoughts and feelings into being! Believing is seeing!
It’s a good time to Zen it out, folks, while Mercury is in Pisces (Mercury rules the mind and communication.) So spend this time practicing spiritual activities like meditation, journal-writing, yoga or walking, or doing anything that helps you connect to your spiritual self. Dreams both awake and asleep are full of messages at this time, and there can be some interesting information the Universe is trying to pass along, so pay extra close attention! The shadow side of this energy is we can feel foggy and sidetracked once again, as we were already in this energy for a while last month before Mercury went Retrograde. It can prove difficult to focus and we can lose concentration quickly.
March 19: Sun enters Aries Every year around this time the Sun enters the sign of Aries, and this officially kicks off the Spring Equinox above the Equator, and the Fall Equinox below, this is a time for new beginnings for those of us who are in the Spring Equinox. This transit gives us a warrior spirit with a strong heart. This can help us accomplish our goals. The influence of this sign can help ALL of us feel more confident and bold, so we can work better on projects and plans, and initiate something.
March 20: Mars Conjuncts Jupiter This is an interesting transit with Warrior Mars connecting to expansive Jupiter. We can feel like things are chaotic and out of control. This is a time when we tend to be quite impulsive and overdo things. Jupiter makes energies bigger and grand, while Mars is the planet of action and aggression, and when expanded can give us some crazy but strong energy that we can use to help motivate us to work on projects and goals. We can have lots of irons in the fire under this influence, and we just might have to let some things go, because we are so busy.
March 21: Saturn enters Aquarius This is a huge, Major Shift in the Cosmos! Saturn is the planet that rules over structures, taking responsibility and being accountable for our actions. It helps us draw boundaries, accept limitations, and deal with restrictions. We must learn to do what we are told and follow the rules when Saturn is involved.
Every two and a half years Saturn enters a new Zodiac Sign. While Saturn was in practical but ambitious Capricorn our focus was more on getting ahead and making plans so we could find something secure to build upon in this life. But with Saturn now in the sign of Aquarius, our focus shifts to helping with humanitarian efforts, and groups of like-minded folks, or those who are fighting for the same cause. So we are more interested in networking, friendships, and socialization. It’s a good time to find your Soul Tribe folks! Think about who you want to hang out or associate with. So we need to focus on plans and goals that involve others. This is not a time to go it alone, instead, we should stand together.
March 23: Mars conjuncts Pluto This is a strong potent influence, and it can potentially lead to something you’ve been wanting to achieve. We just have to make sure and keep control of ourselves, and not abuse our power, but direct it along with our passion for what we want. Letting go and allowing others to help us can bring in important people who can help us meet goals. Acting out of control and alienating the ones who are trying to help us can be problematic, so try to fix these problems. We must be mindful of not reacting under this influence, but remember this energy can have us all over the place! Over-reacting can lead to major problems. If we can keep our cool and be good to others and maybe help them out, we are going to in return feeling good about ourselves and hopefully clear some Karmic Debt along the way!
March 24: New Moon Aries A New Moon is a time of New Beginnings, and the sign of Aries is all about starting or initiating something new and fresh starts. This energy wants us to move forward and take action. This gives us more drive to take some necessary steps towards our goals and dreams. Just keep in mind that Aries is a tough sign, and is the warrior of the Zodiac and therefore we need to be more mindful while chasing down our dreams.
March 28: Venus trines Jupiter and Pluto The planet of love is in its home sign of more loyal Taurus, and is getting some help from its friends Jupiter and Pluto, both in more ambitious Capricorn. This aspect can help us in our business relationships, as those in a position of power can come to our aid in some way. In our personal relationships, there can be some transforming energies that are very powerful and intense. Some of you might fall in love during this time, as we can make deep authentic connections with others, and we won’t have it any other way. If you want real love, this is a time to let go and surrender to the power of what this transit is offering.
March 30: Mars Enters Aquarius This marks a big change, and we should get used to thinking outside the box now. Passionate, motivated Mars leaves simple Capricorn for independent Aquarius. This is a time for us to get creative and innovative. If you can tap into the active energy of Mars and the determination of Aquarius, you might just reach goals you didn’t think were possible.
March 31: Mars conjuncts Saturn This is not the kind of energy to be wasting our time in, as authoritative Saturn demands we take actions around our responsibilities. So we can be in a big hurry to get our to-do lists done, but we might run into obstacles and roadblocks along the way. We shouldn’t get too frustrated if we can’t do everything we want, as this is actually a good time to get more detailed about what it is you want to do with your life. This connection demands that we be disciplined and patient, which makes it a good time to work at it. Saturn serves as a reminder, that if we do a job that we need to do it right or it’s not worth it. We can make this influence easier if we work on the tasks we know we need to get done first, and if we apply ourselves we’ll be better able to get more things done.

Happy New Year, Happy New Decade, what a wild ride it’s already been in the first few days of 2020!
We start this month off in what’s called an Astrological “Stellium” of planets, all in the sign of Capricorn, that actually started back in early December. This keeps us very aware and focused on our future plans and goals, so most of us are thinking about how we can rebuild certain parts of our lives.
A “Stellium” in Astrology is when there are three or more planets in the same Zodiac Sign at the same time. So this energy is highly concentrated and is a very powerful source of energy that helps us focus and manifest what we truly desire. Capricorn energy is known for being the manfestor and builder of the Zodiac! For the next three weeks, the Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto, and Mercury plus an Asteroid called Ceres, and the South Node Destiny Point of the Moon are all in the sign of Capricorn! Wow! That’s a lot of energy in the builder of the Zodiac.
This is a very powerful time to continue Setting Intentions with the Universe, as we are spiritually more aware and in tune, by clearing out old energies and bringing in new energies than we can see more clearly our future plans and goals. You can do this through things like meditation, journal-writing, exercise, and clearing out your spaces, especially here in the physical! Clean out a closet and watch what you manifest in your life. Get rid of the dust and clutter and see what kind of energies you open up in your life.
Ask the Universe to help you create your wishes, dreams, future plans and goals. The energy of all things Capricorn is being strongly activated at this time. It doesn’t matter what your Sun Sign is, as we all have Capricorn energy somewhere in our personal Astrology Birth Chart. And whatever area of your Chart this “Stellium” is traveling through currently is the part of your life you need to remain focused on the most.
If we work with the old wise ways of manifesting, we can boost our skills and develop things. Since we are talking about Capricorn’s energy as a whole and not just the Sun Sign, we have to look at Capricorn’s ruling planet, which is Saturn, and currently, Saturn is actually transiting the sign of Capricorn for the next 11 months! Also, lucky Jupiter is in Capricorn for the same amount of time. And mental Mercury will be in Capricorn until mid-January. Under these very powerful energies, we just need to focus our attention on one area of our life that we want to see something new or different happen. Try to only pick one thing over these next few weeks and concentrate on achieving that goal. If you get all scattered and try to work on a bunch of major things right now, it probably won’t work out for the best. We’ve only got a few weeks to work on something that can change our life for the better. This is a powerful trio of Cosmic energies to help you manifest something amazing in your life.
January 2020 Monthly Forecast
January 3rd: Mars in Sagittarius
When this energetic, feisty planet enters the sign of adventure and travel, we are more than ready to be done with old routines and schedules. There is a whole world out there to explore, it’s just waiting for us to go discover it, so make sure during Mars’ run through Sagittarius you get out of the house, and go out of your neighborhood, go explore and do something, the possibilities can be amazing during this time. Under the sign of Sagittarius, we are more concerned with things like philosophy, religion, morals, ethics, and anything that helps us feel optimistic again. Our faith can be restored during this time. We can become over-enthusiastic supporters and advocates, or zealous crusaders. When you think or share your beliefs allow your inner philosopher to guide the way. Mars runs through the sign of Sagittarius through February 16th
January 7: Mars inconjuncts Uranus
Ideally, our lives would run smoothly if everything went well all the time. But that’s not going to ever happen, as the planets who influence us are never in perfect harmony. Don’t let this energy throw you off when something or someone forces a change in your plans. This is exactly what can happen when the action planet meets up with unpredictable Uranus. The best thing you can do is to pay attention to what other people want and change your expectations of exactly how things should go. The more flexible you are the easier it will be to adapt to the changing circumstances we all are going through.
January 8: Jupiter conjuncts South Node
There can be certain influential or wise important people who show up in your life. They seem to have a strong sense between right and wrong, and a healthy moral ethic. But be careful this also can bring in someone with a very larger than life attitude who seems to know a lot, but it’s not a good thing. Think about setting your own personal path and focus on your goals. Think about what’s worth going after. What’s your future look like through your visions? Who or what is guiding you. The more you stay grounded in your own life the better decisions you will make. Do things your way! Make sure before you trust anyone and what they have to say make sure to do your own research and make them know what in the hell they’re talking about folks! Don’t just take anyone’s word for it.
January 9: Sun conjuncts Mercury
This conjunction is in the sign of more serious Capricorn, so we can feel quite practical during this time. This is an ideal time to review your ideas and plans as you figure out which ones make sense. The time where we start to see the benefits that have come from past conversations, agreements, and ideas we’ve had over the last few months. You know how I can get the attention you deserve for any opinions or ideas that you’ve had, this will help move you forward. As all astrological conjunctions mark a beginning, this is a good time to make new plans with new ideas.
January 10: Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Cancer
The Moon in Cancer is opposing the Sun in more earthly Capricorn. Lunar Eclipses are basically a stronger more intense Full Moon. This is an extremely emotional time that not only raises the ocean tide, but the water within our own bodies, so basically it’s high tide emotionally as well. Between the Lunar Eclipse and the next New Moon, make changes that make you feel more secure, comfortable, and safe. There can be a strong urge to focus more so on your career and financial endeavors, but it’s important to be paying more attention to your family and personal needs at this time.
January 10: Uranus goes Direct from Retrograde
The planet of revolution, change, and divine messages (epiphanies and little Ah-ha moments) shifts directions on this day, so we should expect the unexpected! Our freedom and independence are more important than ever now in the world and on a personal level. People need space to breathe and move around. Don’t allow fear of the unknown to stop you from taking your most important ideas and goals and moving forward with them. Even though we have no idea where things are headed, we must have faith in something better. Be ready to adapt to changes as they come now.
January 12: Mercury conjuncts Saturn and Pluto.
This is intense conjunction energy that is a bit complicated. With Pluto in the mix are conversations can certainly be intense. However, with somber Saturn involved as well will make it very important that you get your facts straight. People are already working up to this energy now, you can see its evidence in our intense conversations as people have a strong point of view and opinions. Be aware of what you are saying and expressing during this time. Our words no matter how communicated have immense power and can either transform others more positively or they can cut people deeply! It’s important to know when to shut your mouth and when to speak up! Sometimes what you have to say doesn’t help matters.
January 12: Saturn conjuncts Pluto **
This is the big conjunction we’ve been waiting for, and already dealing with known as the “Great Shift”. When the father of the Zodiac meets up with powerful Pluto in the middle of Eclipse Season, and peaks right around the Full Moon! The Universe means business, this energy has already been rocking our world. This energy is supercharged up and intense. It serves as a reminder to let go of old ideas about the way the world is and how things should work. The old outdated rules just don’t apply to our lives anymore, so quit trying to live your life by them. This is a time for clearing out space and old energies. And remember conjunctions start new beginnings, so you may have to let something go first to get things moving. Out with old and in with the new as they say! This is a time of transformation and rebuilding what’s been torn down over the last ten years. It’s time for the rules to be changed, as they should reflect the world we live in now. These two are both Outer Planets, and they tend to affect things globally, but also each of us personally. Now, with the planets that represent authority and power having a conversation you should be asking yourself some questions. How can you position yourself in this changing world?
Saturn and Pluto together represent strong concentrated serious energy. Make sure you are directing it in the right direction, don’t just sit around and hide from this energy. It’s time to step up and do what it takes now. Knowing where the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction is in your personal Astrology Birth Chart can help you understand more clearly what part of your life you should be building on now, so where to invest your time and energy, and where to let go. Best of luck, this can be seriously disturbing at times, but it can help you transform your life.
January 13: Sun conjuncts Pluto and Saturn
You have a lot of authority, power, and energy at your disposal. Let go of what’s broken or not working unless it can be transformed into a new and better version. Align yourself with those who have clout and the ability to help you. You have a power base and if you stand in it, you will achieve your goals.
January 13: Venus enters Pisces
The planet of love and relationships transits through the poetic sign of Pisces, this can help us bring a little romance back into our life. This influence opens our hearts and helps us see the beauty in other people, as we tend to accept other people’s flaws, and love them for who they are. This is a perfect time to meet someone new or to strengthen the spiritual bond of an existing relationship. Take some time to hang with the object of your affection. This is a time when we feel the ones we love and words are not needed. This beautiful transit runs through February 7.
January 16: Mercury enters Aquarius
Mental Mercury needed a change of pace seriously and it enters into more free-spirited Aquarius, this helps give us a new point of view. And we can work at developing our original creative ideas. It’s a good time to work at leaving old ways of thinking behind. You can really help yourself by looking to the future, and by being inventive and think outside the box. Also knowing where Mercury is currently traveling through in your Astro Birth Chart can help you apply those new, bright ideas to the right part of your life. Mercury is in Aquarius until February 3.
January 20: Sun enters Aquarius
Over the last year, we have been out through lots of changes. When the Sun leaves ambitious Capricorn and enters independent Aquarius, our minds naturally focus on our future goals and we can network, meet new and interesting people, and embrace any new ideas we get now. It’s time to invest in your life and goals and take what life has to offer. Trying to meet goals alone might now be so easy, as Aquarius is the sign of “Teamwork”, so join up with like-minded people during the Sun’s run through Aquarius, it’s a good discover and connect with your community.
January 23: Sun squares Uranus
This influence can make you feel quite restless, and you might start to notice its effects earlier on. If might be time to make some changes to your life, and the year 2020 is all about making major changes. When the Sun meets unpredictable Uranus, the planet of independence, it’s time to shake things up. It’s a good time to get out of any old routines that aren’t working for you. Get out of that rut, and don’t suppress the natural healthy desires you might be having for change. Instead, follow your inner guidance and see where it takes you.
January 26: Venus squares Mars
Sometimes the people we like aren’t necessarily the ones we desire. And sometimes the people who seem intriguing are not good for you. When the Cosmic Lovers get into a tense square like this we can bet our relationships can be a bit shaky for a few days. This can bring tension to both romantic and business relationships. You may just have to agree to disagree if you can. Also, there can be some shady characters running around who seem interesting and knowledgeable. But don’t trust false guru’s and take everyone at face value. Be mindful during this time about how you relate to others.
January 27: Venus conjuncts Neptune
Loving Venus is all about our personal love life but also our relationship to money. Neptune more about universal love. This influence opens our heart and soul, as we can see the inner beauty in the least expected places. Take this dreamy energy and run with it, spend some time with the ones you love and do things that make you happy. This can be a very lucky few days for some of you.
January 28: Mars squares Neptune
With the planet of action and control, Mars in a tense connection to the foggy side of Neptune, things definitely may not be what they appear to be. And with Mars in go get em Sagittarius we can be in a big old hurry anyway, but this energy can take you into unfamiliar territory, especially with Neptune being in its own sign of Pisces right now. This is a time of confusion, and it can have you questioning what you are doing for a few days. Try to avoid being straightforward, and pay attention to what you feel when your around other people, and before making any important decisions.

On December 28th Mercury enters the sign of Capricorn and stays there through January 16th.
Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and travel has been in the sign of Sagittarius for the last three weeks at its detriment. The bottom line is this means while Mercury is in Sagittarius, it does not do so well. As we had less control of our mouths and impulses. This was a time of travel, exploration, and learning. But even if we didn’t get to actually go anywhere, we probably had some amazing adventures in our minds. It was a good time for meeting new people, so hopefully there were fresh new ideas gained and perspectives changed. But now a shift occurs and it’s time to make new plans and set new goals, and manifest what we want next in our life. Our goals should reflect who we are and want to become.
With Mercury in Capricorn, we tend to get more calm and quiet, and are less over the top under this energy. It’s much easier to focus and concentrate on the tasks on hand that we need to take care of. This simply is a much better position for the messenger planet, so we can get more serious about taking care of business once again.
With the planet that rules over our thinking in more systematic Capricorn, we are more focused. Our attitude tends to be more sobering and practical. It’s much easier to concentrate on what needs to get done. Our conversations are more reality-based, usually about business or practical matters. We communicate more logically, as we can be more organized and orderly. Being focused on the here and now can help us plan ahead. Communications tend to be a matter of fact, no-nonsense, and precise. But it’s important to not allow our thoughts to become too cold or rigid, or we can come across as cut off and even harsh during this cycle, when really we are just more focused on business and goals.
There’s actually a whole lot of Capricorn energy going around right now, with it being “Capricorn Season”, and there are four other planets also in the sign represented by the Sea-Goat. This energy encourages us to take life and ourselves more seriously, so it doesn’t support fantasies do much or daydreams about the future. It wants us to just get out and actually do something.
We should be as productive as possible during these cycles! It’s a good time to make out plans and get organized by writing things down, especially your goals. And talk about what you want to do with the people involved. Staying productive makes us happy and puts our minds at ease.
The sign of Capricorn is not about being overly emotional, as it has work to do. It’s about the material things here on the planet and what we value in the physical world. Our thinking tends to be more logical and practical. It may not be the best time to share feelings or for being vulnerable, as we are more concerned and focused on getting what we want and seeing actual results materialize.
Under this energy, we tend to value honesty, integrity, and loyalty. So we should use this time to identify the best means to get a job done. Under this Capricorn influence, we can manage our resources quite well and make mostly practical purchases with our hard-earned cash or money.
It is important to take care of ourselves, and make sure we are taking some time to get away, relax and have some fun from time to time. Under all this Capricorn energy people tend to be more hard on themselves, so we can beuptight. It’s ok to rest and not be constantly doing something. Take a break!
Have a productive and successful time with Mercury in Capricorn.
Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse For All Signs Of The Zodiac
The Moon is Full in the sign of Capricornon July 16, 2019, and it’s a partial Lunar Eclipse. It comes together around 4:39 PM CST, 5:39 PM EDT. The Eclipse occurs when the Moon in Capricorn opposes the Sun in Cancer.
This is an especially potent Full Moon, being its a Partial Lunar Eclipse, so our focus turns towards our relationships under this lunation. But also our work and family lives.
Eclipses create the energy of crisis in our lives, and often they bring up what we are lacking. This is a time when we can suddenly realize there’s something missing, perhaps a need or want we can’t seem to fulfill. This Eclipse can actually split some relationships up, but it also brings folks together. Suddenly, we may realize that there’s a need to have other folks around helping support us. This is also about making sure the foundation of our soul tribe of friends and family is strong. But Lunar Eclipses are not always about relationships, they can also bring up certain needs in other areas of our life, such as our relationship to our work, or to our health and bodies, it really can be about anything. The Full Moon lights up our deeper feelings that have been just sitting below the surface to be dealt with.
Under the Full Moon, we can be very emotional and express ourselves without warning. This is a time when some folks will claim out loud what they are really about and what they want in life. We are reacting from a strong but illogical emotional place. Lunar Eclipses are stronger and more potent than a normal Full Moon, so its effects can last up to about six months after it occurs.
Lunar Eclipses are about relationships and are oppositions, this time around the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn are bumping against one another. So we must take a closer look at our needs, lacks and wants in our lives and create a balance around what we should be working on. This Full Moon is about our personal private lives, our need for a secure home base, and how we nurture ourselves. The other side of this energy is our public life, careers, reputations, and how we take responsibility. Being attached and love is ruled by Cancer, while our success and rewards and punishments are ruled by Capricorn energy, this polarity deals with balancing unconditional and conditional love. The Cancer energy involved encourages us to value our home life and that foundation, as well as our roots, while the Capricorn energy wants us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along with our professional lives. Cancer energy is about being content with being dependent, Capricorn wants us to grow the hell up and take responsibility! Cancer energy also represents the beginning and where we come from, and Capricorn is about the goals we set. Ideally, setting some sort of balance between these two energies is what the Full Moon is asking us to do.
This Full Moon is helping us learn how to strike a balance between our commitments to our work and families both. As we’ve been holding onto something emotionally that’s very important, as the Cosmos is reminding us via the Full Moon that it’s still there to let out and express how we are feeling, so these issues to be released. Hopefully, over time we’ll have all the information we need to better understand what all of this means.
The Full Moon energy brings up an inner conflict to be dealt with, and it can prove difficult to sit with such strong feelings, so we need to find ways to express them. This causes that crisis situation, as some kind of sudden awareness around what we are lacking in our life usually comes up! This is an opportunity to figure out what we need. So during this highly emotionally charged time, our relationships can be challenging, and either broken or dramatically made even stronger. We also may experience some kind of major Ah-Ha moments or epiphanies. This leads us to learning more about what we don’t have and taking some actions to obtain it.
Full Moons and especially Lunar Eclipses bring up issues in our lives to finish something. Our emotions are stronger than usual and there’s often some sort of drama involved around whatever part of our own personal Astrology Birth Chart the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is cruising through. That’s the area of our life that the Cosmos is pushing us to make much-needed changes in. There can be some serious drama in whatever part of our life this Eclipse is going through. So a path is often revealed to us, so we can move towards it and make things better, if we understand it or not, it is trying to align us with our true Soul Journey, as our life destiny is at play. Usually, these issues are something we’ve been sitting on or ignoring, so our emotions have been building, and this Eclipse helps us realize they are still there, we just haven’t chosen to work through them yet. The Full Moon’s light and energy draw them out into the open, so if we get in touch with our emotions we can get a much more clear idea about what actually needs to be done or changed and let go of.
The Lunar Eclipse occurring in the sign of Capricorn sets off our inner awareness about the flaws in the structures we’ve built in our lives, especially in our careers and involving our home and family life. So there are serious decisions that need to be made to fix things. This Lunar Eclipse is a powerful one with confrontational energy, because it’s making a conjunction to psychological and powerful Pluto, and is opposite Mercury (now in Retrograde). This brings out intense emotional reactions compulsive behavior, and of course, power struggles around crisis situations, so this can be quite a complicated time, as there’s a stronger need to do something, it can cause us to feel a sense of urgency. Take some time for yourself and try to relax while we get through this strong energy.
On June 8, Venus the Goddess of Love, that rules over our relationships and often financial affairs enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3rd.
We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious, under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the lines in any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity. Which with Venus involved, the Goddess of Love, that means some people are also going to be more curious than usual about being free and not in a relationship, as the air sign Gemini influence can make us desire more alone time, and we can feel quite detached and therefore, this is not a time to take love or a relationship too seriously. Keep it light and fluffy folks!
On the other hand under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity however, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow. This energy keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects our love lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky.
Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies, but very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time, so you may want to be more careful about taking on our lovers emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks!
It is a good time to connect intellectually with others relationships, but especially with our partners, as we feel each other’s energies in a unique way. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep our relationships more above the surface for now.
This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky and not just get it on with anyone who is willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore.
Venus also rules over money, and since there are two sides to the sign of the twins, Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We are cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like movies, books, apps online, and writing materials. So even when money is low, we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend.
June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end.
The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy.
Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!
On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.
On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long.
Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances.
On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.
The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well.
On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune,this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.
June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow period. Mercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!
Happy Summer Solstice. Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!
On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.
The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.
The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.
On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes with what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self more.
OnJune 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.
Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at firstname.lastname@example.org or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings, ~Ruby
