Mercury officially starts its Retrograde cycle in the sign of Libra today, and it will go back into Virgo during this cycle through October 2. So the signs Libra & Virgo might be presented with some extra challenges during this Retrograde time. But all the Zodiac Signs are already feeling this backward energy!
Mercury rules over communication, so “anything” to do with communicating tends to break down during the Retrograde cycle. It’s a time to stop advancing and review progress. Also, there are often travel delays during Mercury in Rx because we won’t stop moving and doing things. During Mercury Retrograde, we ideally are supposed to sit still and disconnect from our plugged-in world.
Heads Up! So frustrations are normal during Mercury Rx, but this particular cycle seems to have some good news attached to it as well. There is a period of time when we receive information that can be quite positive and just out of the blue!
Pay attention to any A-ha moments, epiphanies, news, or signs you get from the Universe! They can occur anywhere, so you may see a movie or read something online that seems to be just for you. Pay attention! This energy is especially strong for the Cardinal Signs; Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. But it can and will affect all of you.
It all depends on where Mercury travels during its Retrograde; this time around, Mercury in Libra will return to oppose Jupiter. This indicates unfinished negotiations that must be figured out in much more detail. As Mercury goes back into Virgo, it also makes an aspect to mysterious Pluto, and there can be some issues from the past that need to be dealt with and eliminated before any further progress can be made.
Dates of interest during the Mercury Retrograde cycle. September 9 September 18 October 11 (during the after-shadow period)
Mark the days listed above on your calendar to help remind you to be aware. The truth will often be revealed about something or someone during these dates. Anyone who has been deceptive, lying, or hiding things can suddenly be found out. So it should prove to be an interesting time.
With Mercury in Libra, our minds are active, and we can have strong problem-solving skills. But with Mercury in Retrograde, we can have difficulty making decisions, so we often will keep our problems to ourselves to analyze.
Take it easy, and make sure to go over the details again and again if need be. Be patient with yourself and others, as the confusion is real for everyone! Be grown and try to be understanding with mistakes and mishaps. Since we’re all in this together, we can get through this Retrograde cycle unscathed if we are patient and understanding. ~Ruby
If you’re feeling like something big or life-changing is coming soon, you’re probably sensing the energies of the Eclipses forming throughout April & May!
New Moons bring beginnings, and Full Moons bring endings, while Eclipses are more like Cosmic Breaks! An Eclipse dramatically illuminates our Karmic Path and helps us see where we are headed and what we should be focusing on to get ahead.
Eclipses bring in two totally different energies, some bring opportunities, and others close doors, but usually, what ends is something that’s already been broken down. Many of you will experience sudden and unexpected events during Eclipse Season.
Eclipses also push us to take action and make important and sometimes life-altering decisions. It’s inevitable for life to move forward, if we like it or not. New Moons and Solar Eclipses illuminate what we need to get on the right path towards our goals and align with our Soul Journey.
Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses shed their light on existing situations so we can view them from a new or different perspective. And secrets are often revealed! So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, you might want to tidy things up! It’s important to experience this shift, even if a sudden realization is tough to handle. The truth shall set you free!
During Eclipse Season, you might be able to let go of something you’ve been holding on to that is no longer serving your highest good. It’s a time to release and let go. And work towards creating a new plan or setting new goals that align more with your true destiny.
*April 30 – Solar Eclipse in Taurus *May 16 – Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio *October 25 – Solar Eclipse in Scorpio *November 8 – Lunar Eclipse in Taurus
The 2022 Eclipses in Taurus-Scorpio impact all of us, so all the Signs of the Zodiac. These Cosmic Lunations will impact everyone differently based on their individual Birth Charts.
These Eclipses will bring events that unfold over the following 6-12 months after the Eclipses occur, so we may not understand their full impact until they’re over. They can bring endings that affect different parts of our lives, usually relating to our jobs, relationships, friendships, and attitudes. They can also bring in new energies that affect our careers, homes, habits, and people in our lives.
In the end, it’s believed that whatever happens during Eclipse Season is for our highest good, but as we move through this time, the endings and beginnings the Eclipses bring may not make sense or be understood right away, or at least until their over.
Last Fall’s Eclipse on November 19, 2021, was a game-changer, as it marked the first chapter of a new Karmic path for all of us. Because Eclipses work in conjunction with one occurring after the other, and they are connected to the Lunar Nodes (Moon’s North & South Points), they activate these points of our Karmic Path in this life. Please read up on the Lunar Nodes; they are quite accurate about our lives.
If we think back to what happened in our lives last November of 2021 and what presented conflicts and opportunities, it can help us understand better how their energy played out in our lives over time.
The fixed signs of the Zodiac, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, are particularly affected by the upcoming Taurus-Scorpio Eclipses. These eclipses will impact us all, but they can hit these Signs hard. But by 2023, some aspects of our life may be quite different. But don’t worry; ideally, these fated events will make our lives better in one way or another, even if it’s uncomfortable for now.
Since the April 30 Solar Eclipse occurs with the New Moon, it’s a great time to Set Big Intentions! Just like you do with any New Moon energy. Think of this potent Eclipse as having the energy of several New Moons! It can be some serious life-changing energy! With the Eclipse in the sign of Taurus, you should make wishes that involve abundance, security, and finances, in true Taurus fashion. So write a to-do list about what you want to happen in your life! What are your goals and dreams? Manifest it!
Catching a Lucky Break! There’s still some seriously lucky energy going around throughout April with the current Astrological lineup at play. As a matter of fact, the last Monday of April and the days leading up to the Solar Eclipse/New Moon on April 30 are extremely lucky and strong for random positive events to take place. It’s time to do all the things that help connect you to the Universe and call some of this “lucky” energy in for yourself. Do some energy work and lift yourself up to a better frequency and vibration, so you are in a higher state of awareness that will attract good luck and abundance.
Amazing things can happen when you focus on bringing in money and prosperity. Even the smaller wins matter and are important. Many of my clients have already received job offers, promotions, and other lucky breaks. Being grateful for all that comes our way and paying it forward helps.
Let me help guide you through this Eclipse Season, especially if you feel confused or need assistance navigating this intense Cosmic time. Continue Reading my Astrology Blogs, and message me if you would like to schedule a Reading.
December 2021 Astro Forecast For All Zodiac Signs 🌟
🌟The Cosmos kicks off December 2021 with a New Moon/Solar Eclipse on December 4. This energy starts to build up on Dec 1, and it can be intense feeling starting now!
A Solar Eclipse occurs at the time of the New Moon, which brings new beginnings, so this cycle often brings some lucky energies, which might have already started for some. And its influence runs through January of 2022.
🌟 Mark December 15 on your calendar as one of the most intense days of the month. For the next few weeks, we should take it easy and practice some self-care. Eclipse Season is always very hard on people.
🌟 Attention: if you are a sensitive type, Healer, Psychic, or Empath, you will probably feel this Eclipse energy even more, so make sure to work ahead to keep your energy fields protected.
The Solar Eclipse is potent, especially with the other cosmic transits occurring at the same time. It can make you feel like things are out of your control or even chaotic. Finding definite answers to questions may prove difficult, and making important decisions can be confusing, especially with foggy Neptune casting its veil over us as it goes out of its Retrograde phase and back to its normal cycle. Allow life to flow and try not to put up a fight or work against these energies, as it will only backfire on you!
On a side note, the days leading to New Year’s Eve can be a time to be extra careful. It’s best to stick to close family and friends and celebrate. It is not a good night for a large party.
December seems to be a time for subtle changes, and there may even be an event that changes the way we see the world over the next few months! This month will bring some serious revelations, both big and small.
🌟 December Important Dates
🌟 December 1 – Neptune Stations or stops to go direct from its Retrograde phase. With Neptune finally moving forward again since last June, secrets tend to be revealed. And for the next week or so, things can seem extra confusing, but we’ll start to feel inspired once again. As our inner muse randomly shows back up.
🌟 December 18 – the Full Moon in Gemini is opposing the Galactic Center at 27 degrees Sagittarius. This energy can be strange or unusual, so make sure and remember that things may not go as planned—more info to follow.
🌟 December 18 – Venus goes Retrograde (backward) while in the sign of Capricorn through the end of January. If you’re reading this at the beginning of December, you could already be dealing with the side effects, as Venus has entered its Retrograde shadow period.
This energy causes tensions in intimate relationships and with lovers. Still, it can affect your professional and personal relationships, both. It’s a time to let go of the things that aren’t of value to you anymore. It can be a difficult time financially, or we can see issues around what we value. Also, old lovers often come back around, and some may even want to get back together. Rarely do lovers who reunite during the Venus Retrograde cycle stay together after it’s over.
🌟 December 21, 2021 The Winter Solstice occurs, and the days start to grow longer. A time of endings that sets us up for new beginnings in Spring. It’s a very powerful day to Set Intentions with the Universe, so do some energy work or rituals like you would with a New or Full Moon. Take the time to write down your plans, goals, and wishes for the next three months and what you want to manifest in your life.
🌟Extra Astro Notes Starting in mid-December, we can feel the energies shift as the Karmic North and South Node points of Destiny shift into the sign of Taurus and Scorpio. These influences are big and can change how we handle what we value and our finances on a very large scale.
The North Nodes shifts into Taurus, and over the next year and a half, this energy will affect our financial affairs as it goes through a major overhaul. There’s a stronger desire to change jobs or start up some sort of side hustle to keep things secure for many of you. Other people will feel strongly about getting married or making long-term commitments in relationships. We want to create something stable and comfortable in our lives. Those who are unhappy with their work or relationships may finally have had enough and decide to cut their losses and walk away from their current situations. This influence officially starts on January 22 and runs through July 2023
The Karmic North Node point in Astrology while in Taurus affects what we value. This shift can bring conflict, worry, and confusion regarding our security. The good news is over the next year, this influence can help us make important much-needed changes. Even if we don’t like these changes, the outcome is usually more positive.
🌟And then the South Node Destiny Point shifts into Scorpio. This energy pushes us to release something that’s been holding us back, like obligations or something burdening. We must let go of something that no longer serves our lives or blocks us from following our true soul journey. Some of you will end something; it could be a job or relationship; whatever happens, it’s time to evolve and grow. This influence brings big transformations as some things must end, but not all endings are bad. Even though it may be difficult at the time, these changes are for our highest good.
🌟Lastly, the United States enters its Shadow phase of its Pluto Return. Pluto is the planet that shakes things down and often destroys foundations so that we can rebuild and transform them.
Pluto was Conjunct the Moon on its birthday, July 4, 1776. As Pluto moves closer to the Anaetic degree of Capricorn or the “Karmic Degree,” our country will see some major changes. Our nation’s Pluto Return will bring both rewards and difficulties. This energy runs from 2022-2024.
This energy, in the end, is for our own good and creates a better way of life and ways of living. But if we want to reach that point, this country needs to deal with its demons first! As we’ve already been experiencing. Pluto brings our dark history back around to heal. If you can imagine, these strong energies are returning to their exact point for the first time since July 4, 1776! So the United States Pluto Return energy has already started and will peak within months. Things are getting real!
The Full Moon occursat 10:56 AM Eastern time on October 20th. And Mars conjuncts the Sun at this time, which can help us in some ways, but it also opposes the emotional Moon and tensely squares powerful Pluto. This energy is all rather intense, on top of an impulsive Full Moon in fiery Aries! So it’s important to pay attention and take a breath if you start to feel frustrated.
Full Moon’s our harbingers of truth, so if you’re looking for closure, you can actively release things during this Full Moon. It’s a good time to work on Setting Intentions, with the theme of letting go. You can ask the Universe questions through activities like journal-writing, meditations, or energy work. Just simply ask however you do it!
As I mentioned, the emotional Full Moon is squaring off with powerful Pluto, which creates some pretty intense energies. This energy can be an explosive time as our emotions have to be expressed one way or another under the Full Moon’s pressure, and add this transit, and we can feel extreme psychological pressure to be in control. It’s important to be willing to compromise to avoid conflict. Choose your battles wisely! Seriously! Which can turn into war-like energy, folks. Tempers can flare up, and rage can be an issue.
Don’t over-schedule yourself, as these transits produce mental pressure, on top of Mercury going direct from its Retrograde phase, which causes confusion. So you don’t need to add stress to these influences by pushing yourself even harder. It’s not a time for things like legal matters, negotiations, or important discussions. At least until this energy starts to break apart in a few days when the Full Moon loses its oomph, and its effects decrease. It’s a time to get away from challenges and stressful people, or you can have serious problems. Ego battles can occur, so avoid the mess.
The Sun, Mercury, and Mars are all in the sign of Libra, so many of you might be feeling somewhat dissatisfied or even disappointed in your current relationships. And with so many planets, especially mental Mercury screwing with our minds in Libra and Retrograde, relationships have been under the spotlight!
The shadow side of this particular Full Moon is strong, with darker Pluto hanging out. No wonder, so many of you have been ghosted, as people are leaving suddenly without any explanations, just poof, and nothing! There’s been a lot of lying and backstabbing going around. Unfortunately, these influences cause relationships to end abruptly, without little to no closure. Some of you have already been involved in a situation that made you feel victimized, which can be heart-wrenching. So pay attention to how you react to others.
With Mars and Mercury both in Libra, we’re dealing with major passive-aggressive behavior. Some folks aren’t stepping up and being honest about what they’re doing wrong, so they’re not taking responsibility for their actions and how they’re making their loved ones feel. Instead, they would rather avoid you entirely or the situation, so they can stay in denial and not deal with the confrontations. But we must rise up like the story of the Phoenix and figure out how to deal with these situations independently.
There’s numerous ways to gain closure and clarity if you turn to your inner guidance or higher power and do some Setting Intentions healing energy work! Take it easy. Read over my media pages and stories on most Social Media outlets to learn more about how to Sett Intentions!
Rubys Astro Readings September 22, 2021 “SUN ENTERS LIBRA” ☀
🌟FOR ALL ZODIAC SIGNS
Happy Libra Season! ♎ ☀ Happy Birthday To All My Beautiful Libra Souls. 🎉
But this blog is for every Zodiac Sign, not just the Libra’s!
The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra, and transits there from September 22 through October 23.
This is the Autumnal Equinox in the world’s northern hemisphere, when we experience equal daylight hours as darkness. It is symbolic of our intuition as we slowly delve into our unconscious and pull out useful information. It’s a time of healing as we become more observant and learn how to compromise and accommodate others. The Universe will show us signs and messages that can guide us so we should pay attention.
As the Sun shifts into the sign of Libra, our core self and with Mercury also in Libra through November due to its upcoming Retrograde cycle our minds and beliefs are in sync. We’re in constant need of balance. These aspects turn our focus towards our relationships and bring in the energy of cooperation and equality in a very strong manner.
We all may feel more sharp, mindful, and aware during the Sun in Libra. There can be even more issues with unfair treatment, injustice, and systematic racism, which may directly result in taking a stand for others, especially if it’s about those we love. It’s easier to see all sides to most situations, so remember we can’t make everyone happy. Decision-making can be more challenging while the Sun is in Libra. As we overthink and analyze both sides of any situation, and sometimes we can’t stop ourselves. In Libra, the Sun is concerned about not rocking the boat and not rubbing others the wrong way. So we might start playing the role of peacemaker under this influence, so we can be quite diplomatic when dealing with problems or business matters. Which right now is very helpful considering everything we are dealing with in 2021.
We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously. But be careful when seeking out the approval of others. Sometimes, it may be difficult to know who’s telling the truth; follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness and Psychic-selves are strongest.
We can have an extra boost of intuition during Libra Season. It’s just natural to study other people’s behavior and body language, which can tell an awful lot about a person; go ahead and try it. It will make more sense during this time unless you already have strong Libra placements in your Astrology Birth Chart, then you already understand. Libra energy teaches all of us how to tap into our inner psychologist and this makes us more aware of what makes people tick, and how to connect better.
The Libra energy affects those with Libra Suns signs or Rising signs the strongest, but it affects all of us in one way or another. We can feel a jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks. As we feel more social and free. We can gain unique insight and be made more aware of how to balance our energies both emotionally and physically to achieve success.
During the Sun in Libra cycle, we strive to keep some balance and greater equilibrium. But our relationships become of great interest from September 22 through October 23.
However, life is not always peaceful with Libra in its attempt to restore balance. Especially, with Mercury about to go Retrograde (backward) in the sign of Libra. There can be struggles and challenges within our relationships with Venus (the planet of love) in the mysterious sign of Scorpio during this cycle. But the Scorpio energy will bring out the truth and expose the issues within our relationships, so they’ll be under the microscope and are about to get a big dose of reality! If you’re in a relationship that is totally broken down, breakups will happen. But if you are actively trying to work things, the Sun in Libra energy can help us smooth things out. But you have to work at it!
Keywords and topics that come up during The Sun in Libra are tactful, style, tolerance, and sociable. The shadow side of the Libra energy is we can be self-serving, indecisive, passive-aggressive, and superficial.
Saturn Squares Uranus- “Structure meets Rebellion”- For All Zodiac Signs
The 2nd longer-term connection between stern Saturn and shocking Uranus is already underway and peaks on June 14. This influence causes restlessness and high anxiety, so it can be difficult to stick to normal routines and schedules. In addition, there’s a sense of urgency in the air, so the atmosphere can feel chaotic, filled with unexpected shocks and surprises.
The Saturn/Uranus Square is an unusual Cosmic connection, especially a long-term one that repeatedly comes together, such as this one, and all year long, and we are dealing with this unbalanced energy.
Saturn is the conservative and authoritative planet and is in the progressive sign of Aquarius all year long. Uranus is the progressive planet of rebellion and revolution and is in the emotional sign of Taurus all year long!
This connection is rare, so when these two planets clash, their energies can feel oppressive, and we might find ourselves at a crossroads looking at two different paths or missions we need to follow in life. Even if we’re working towards two different goals, we probably will end up with similar results. This energy is the old versus the new. We may have to let go of something to move forward or stick to traditions while starting something new, which can be difficult.
Saturn’s tense Square to Uranus generates friction. As these two planets clash, they create tension between our need for freedom and independence versus our desire for structure and stability. Ideally, if we get creative, we can strike a balance, gain our independence, and simultaneously meet our plans and goals. But this takes work and commitment.
Still, limitations or restrictions are not as easy to deal with as rules will be enforced. We need boundaries set in place to feel more in control and less chaotic. When we attempt to assert our need for individuality, freedom, or originality and try to do things our way, we can be undermined by our own need to keep our lives grounded and secure. It’s a push and pulls kind of energy.
But we may not feel content with conforming, and there can be sudden surprises or unexpected twists and turns that force us to do something differently. This influence can free us from old habits and learned behaviors. So it’s important to be flexible, as we may have to make changes to our plans, especially while Mercury is still Retrograde, through the end of June. This influence can cause even more confusion. Trying to balance starting up something new or different while keeping things agreeable and traditional is challenging.
Any setbacks we experience now are usually only temporary and could could lead us towards new paths or solutions. But this aspect does cause some real frustrations. There can be a difference of opinion, which can feel more problematic than usual, as it blocks progress and causes delays. The people we normally rely on may not be as reliable right now. So we may end up having to do things for ourselves or on our own.
This long-term Saturn Square Uranus transit meeting is the 2nd of three meetings in 2021, with the last one occurring on December 24, 2021.
Beneficial Jupiter shifts into the sign of Pisces on May 14! This lucky cycle makes for quite an exciting time. It’s good to know about the cosmic connections early on so you can take advantage of them. This whimsical energy sets the tone that will last through spring and some of the summer. It’s a time when all of us can receive some sort of luck that’s different or new.
The Zodiac Signs that can have the most luck and benefit from the Jupiter in Pisces influence are the Water Signs; Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio. But Taurus and Virgo can also do quite well, and Virgo’s may get lucky in love this time around. But all the Zodiac Sun Signs can experience a miracle or blessing of some kind as Jupiter bestows its luck and goodness.
Jupiter was actually considered to be the ancient ruler of Pisces before Neptune was discovered! But Neptune is Pisces ruling planet, and Jupiter is Pisces co-ruler. So Jupiter goes well with the sign of Pisces and its energy. This influence brings luck, blessings, and prosperity into our lives. So it’s a good time for Setting Intentions and focusing on future goals. But time-outs are important from time to time, and some serious daydreaming. Remember, our feelings connect us to the Universe, so make sure to ask for the good things during the Jupiter in Pisces cycle. Dream big!
Jupiter is in everyone’s personal Astrology Birth Chart, and depending on what areas of your chart Jupiter is cruising through, it is the part of your life that you see the most gains. But if you don’t see anything happen or you decide not to work with this energy, don’t worry; you’ll get another chance once this transit comes back together, starting at the end of December 2021, where it will stay through mid-May 2022.
But you can take advantage of Jupiter in Pisces cycle in its entirety and reap the rewards for as long as possible if you do some spiritual healing work and ask the Universe for what you want and need in your life. Let Jupiter lead the way and be your guide. It’s the planet of higher learning, knowledge, truth, and adventure. Remember, this exciting influence starts on May 14 and runs through July 28.
May Astro Highlights
Uranus Squares Saturn With the Moon in Aquarius at the beginning of the month and Uranus being Aquarius ruling planet. Whatever challenges you’ve already been dealing with over the last few months might have recently intensified. But this energy might start to disappear as we move away from those problems and towards something new.
Some good days in May are 4, 6, 8 & 9, and 14. There are often better conversations that are clear as we communicate with dignity and respect. This can make a big difference in our lives.
May 2-3 – Venus Sextile Neptune
Making helpful actions brings good energy back to you. This aspect is a potent one because Venus and Neptune both transiting their home signs (Taurus & Pisces) during this cycle, and Venus is exalted or in a higher vibration. This energy promotes positivity, so something good stuff will happen for a whole lot of people.
May 11 – New Moon in Taurus
The New Moon conjuncts the Goddess Black Moon Lilith! This energy tends to bring out the darker side of Lilith, and we have some shadow work to do. This influence produces some interesting energy, that’s for sure. Suddenly, there are more blowups or outbursts, and we can be vicious and use our words to cut someone down to size. And, of course, someone else could play out The Lilith factor in your life. So watch out for difficult situations.
A few days before and after the New Moon peaks, we should keep our distance from those who appear angry or frustrated and from any situation that feels tense or problematic. Now, this is a time to work on your Shadow Self! If you can handle it.
May 23 – October 11 – Saturn Goes Retrograde
Whatever started last February will be reviewed, so you can take this time to revise and rework a project or issue. This Retrograde lasts until mid-October, as Saturn brings a Karmic second chance. There could be a significant event that we should discuss in more detail as we get closer to this time. So I will have more on this soon.
MERCURY Enters PISCES…on March 16th and runs thru April 3rd.
For All Zodiac Signs 🌟
Some big Cosmic changes are starting up this week, so the Universe is slowing us down mentally for the time being, and our minds shift into a new way of thinking, andperspectives can suddenly change.
With MERCURY in PISCES, our way of thinking and processing information is more visual, intuitive, and imaginative. We are more attuned to the world emotionally, which changes both our thoughts and how we communicate. Our hunches are more on point, and we can express ourselves with much more imagination. Our decisions are based more on what we pick up intuitively. So during this time, it is suggested we go by how we are feeling, as logic isn’t making as much sense.
With MERCURY in spiritual PISCES, things aren’t going to always be so clear, especially through March 21st with the Sun in Pisces as well. It can be an extremely foggy or fuzzy time. This energy can leave you feeling not only unmotivated but ran down or depressed, as we’re more vulnerable or susceptible to the environment around us. We should watch out for Psychic Vampires or deceptive characters, as they want to take advantage of anyone who looks weak or vulnerable; if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! Don’t believe everything you hear or even see, and stay grounded.
We may feel like we’ve stepped into a different realm or world during MERCURY’S run through PISCES. The best approach is to take it easy, as we can be quite brilliant during this time. It’s just a matter of knowing how to navigate through the fog as well. And with the planet MERCURY our mental health is affected as well. So we must watch ourselves and others for signs of depression, as it has become an epidemic, Lift each other up, and chooses to inspire others during this time.
During this cycle, we tend to know things we can’t really put our finger on. Anything mystical, universal, and eternal can stir our curiosity. It’s more intuitive, so it can be called Psychic, empathy, or even deja vu. It’s just stronger energy now, so learn more about your spirit and tap into this knowingness when you can, no matter what you call it. However, it may be more difficult to pull certain thoughts forward to the front of our minds during this time, as MERCURY is the mind, and PISCES is the unconscious, so we are just in a different place, right now. So NO, you’re probably not losing your mind! It can be hard to remember the little things, and you may feel extremely forgetful.
It’s the best energy to practice any kind of spiritual activity. Find ways to lift your vibrational energy, so get involved in things like meditation, journal-writing, astral travel, guided visualization, yoga, and music. All of these activities can be especially healing under this energy. Just do anything that helps you connect to your spirit during this time, as it can be quite beneficial and help put you on a path to being whole and healthy.
Don’t forget it’s important to watch how you escape under this Piscean influence. We can slip into a very strange place if we aren’t too careful, and addictions can be a real problem as we tend to escape through things like drugs, alcohol, food, the internet, or sexual activities! Remember to stay in the present moment and remind yourself of the reality of any given situation.
If you feel sad or lost, PLEASE reach out to someone! There is always someone who cares. Your life is worth something, even if you don’t understand what that may be.
On December 14, 2020 – a New Moon, Total Solar Eclipse occurs at 23°08’ of Sagittarius.
Over the last few weeks of Eclipse Season, a portal of energy has been opened. We have been walking blindly through one of the darkest years of our lives. The uncertainty alone has been a major source of anxiety for many. But we have hope for something equally as good and amazing in the future. This New Moon Eclipse, all though dark (all New Moon’s have no light to illuminate), is the symbol of light we need that shines the way towards the end of this tumultuous year. It is the beginning of a New Era!
This Eclipse brings endings and new beginnings, to potentially get rid of an old inner reality we’ve been holding onto. It’s time to take full responsibility for what we’re creating in our life. Sagittarius energies encourage us to go out beyond the normal boundaries, and explore or discover some new great adventure. It’s an opportunity to express our visions, and to connect with energy that’s new and fresh
With the New Moon in the sign of Sagittarius, we tend to feel more optimistic and hopeful, so it’s no surprise that when the Moon and Sun both align (New Moon) in this fire sign, that faith and hope will be restored. No matter how difficult life has been, we may feel or just know that things will get better. We tend to believe in spiritual truths and deeper meanings, more so.
However, with the Moon and Sun both conjunct the Moon’s South Node, which means this Eclipse can also bring significant endings, loss, and chapters closing in our lives. So make sure to honor your own feelings and others both, even if you’re not feeling particularly hopeful right now.
This Eclipse is conjunct mental Mercury, which means it’s important that we speak our truth. It serves as a reminder that our words hold power, and we can quickly realize how we speak our ideas into existence and create our own reality daily. Conversations can be interesting, so try to remain uplifting and inspiring without being dishonest or ignoring your integrity. Manifest something positive in your life to come in!
The Solar Eclipse is squaring foggy Neptune in its own sign of Pisces. So we must try to see the difference between positive thoughts and wishful thinking. It’s important not to make false promises or commitments. We may feel exhausted by this energy.
Luckily, the Moon, Sun, Mercury, and South Node are all in the sign of Sagittarius. And the New Moon makes a nice Trine to Mars in Aries. We’ve got extra fiery willpower to take action and follow through. As our motivation levels are high! It’s important to channel your energy into learning, growth, and evolution. Think of others, not just yourself.
Sagittarius is ruled by over the top Jupiter, so we can sometimes overdo it under all this Sadge energy. Over this last year, with Jupiter’s transit of Capricorn, we have been taught to live with less. Now we can use these skills to break out of the Pandemic and change things around.

Venus, the planet of love, shifts into more faithful Sagittarius on the 15th, yet another planet in a Fire Sign! We may desire more space and freedom from our nearest and dearest, but Covid going around it may not be such a bad thing. We just want to do our own thing and give others the chance to learn and grow.
The rare Solar Eclipse is just the beginning of what looks to be a great week astrologically! As both Saturn and Jupiter shift into the sign of Aquarius on the 17th & 20th. And on the same day of the magical Winter Solstice Dec 21st, these two planets meet up in the rare event called the “Great Conjunction.” This is perhaps one of the biggest Cosmic shifts we’ll see in our lifetime. And it starts off a brand new 20 yr cycle, even though we won’t understand its magnitude of influence into way down the road.

The Sun enters the fire sign of Sagittarius! Happy Birthday to all my Sagittarians! But this energy affects every one of us! As we have the sign of Sagittarius somewhere in our Astrology Birth Charts. This transit lasts through December 21st.
Over the last month, while the Sun was on Scorpio, we felt compelled to make intimate, deep connections with others. Now during Sagittarius Season, we can have a stronger desire to get out and explore and have an adventure. While the Sun moves through this fiery mutable sign, there is an urge to learn, grown, and expand our horizons, so we want to understand the world around us.
During this cycle, we tend to seek out the truth and higher meaning to any given situation. Our faith and hope is restored; we may start to feel hopeful again and more optimistic about life.
Since we’re feeling braver and courageous, we want to head down new and different paths. As our minds open up, we start to believe in the possibilities again. Our confidence levels can soar now, so we can be overly optimistic as we focus more on the “bigger picture” and our dreams instead of just the little details of our mundane everyday life.
However, we tend to overdo things during this cycle, and people can get carried away! It is a time of exaggeration when we can overstate, boost, or brag about something. We tend to say our feelings and ideas out loud, so if we are not careful, we can insert our foot into our mouth!
Welcome to Sagittarius Season, the perfect time to work on our faith, hope, and future visions. We may be more feisty, but we need a big change in the world right now, and this Cosmic shift is the beginning of many changes till the end of the year that can help us get through these darker times.
The Sun in Cancer begins in the North with the Sumer Solstice on June 20, 2020, when the days and nights are equal in length in light and dark.
With the Summer Solstice arriving the Sun also shifts into the protective, sensitive sign of Cancer. The Solstices are important because they open doorways of energy that has become known as the Summer and Winter Seasons, and these special days hold some magical energies we can use to manifest what we want in our lives. The Sun will remain in Cancer until July 22, 2020.
While the Sun is in Cancer for the next month we are more focused on family time, and the days begin to grow longer which is good for making memories. This sign influence means we tend to stick close to home as we have a stronger need for security with our home and family.
Eclipses tend to bring out the truth, as the things that are hidden, repressed, secret, or unknown are revealed. This is a great vibe for teamwork even with the Sun in more private Cancer. If our expectations are unreliable or unrealistic than we will probably be let down. Keep yourself grounded and in your thoughts strong and in reality, it is for the best during this time. With Mercury in Retrograde this time around, this might be more challenging than usual.
The Cancer energies aren’t always as sensitive as people portray it to be, we can also feel quite ambitious like the other Cardinal signs, so we are more tenacious about reaching our business and professional goals. It’s important to take care of your social obligations, as all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong and solid family and home base to fall back on. This helps keep everything on schedule.
When the Sun’s in Cancer, our thoughts naturally turn inward. This is a great time to reach out to loved ones that feel safe, and perhaps plan a very low-key get-together, or maybe finish up any home projects you’ve been needing to get done. We are looking for safety and protection around what we are creating, so we want to surround ourselves with what is secure and familiar.
The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon and so we can become a bit lunatic-like under its influence, especially if we are worn down, emotionally hurt, lonely, or overwhelmed. Our moods can go up and down rather quickly, so for the next month, we become more intimate with the waxing and waning of the Moon and all her phases.
Our everyday lives are experienced on a much deeper emotional level with the Sun in Cancer, (no matter your sign.) This is a time when we can worry more about our emotional security, so we are naturally more concerned with the things that affect us personally. Even if we are interested in what’s happening in the world, we tend to want to protect and nurture those that are close to home more so than usual.
Cancer is the Zodiac Sign of the Mother, which is representative of water, so things like coziness, closeness, emotional bonding, (or bondage, hehe!) are experienced with more depth at this time. This can be quite evident in our everyday lives, as we can be more reactive and impulsive when it comes to our emotional connections with people and places.
This is a highly emotional time in if itself, and depending upon how the other planets in the Cosmos are connecting to the Moon and Sun of course. But our initial reaction is usually to take the road less traveled with the Sun in Cancer. We will do whatever it takes to not be exposed because we tend to feel more vulnerable, including sidestepping direct confrontation, unless of course, we are doing the confronting. So if we lose control we can get a little crazy.
This charged up emotional energy tends to trigger some of our most tender spots, so we can become illogical if we get frustrated or feel picked on. It’s just best to not let yourself go there, as our emotions take the wheel for the next month. It can prove difficult to be objective or as open-minded during this time, as we can be a bit pessimistic in our way of thinking, (especially, with Mercury in Retrograde as well). It’s helpful to work at keeping those thoughts more positive, and we may have to really work at it at times.
We are tapped into the realm of Cancer with the Sun is in this sensitive sign for the next month. So we are at our most powerful when using the power of emotion, with people and our experiences. This gives these are connections more depth and meaning that come from the heart which is good practice for us to learn anyway. Work on being more kind and compassionate while the Sun is in Cancer.
Enjoy your Summer and Happy Birthday all my beautiful Crabs people, Cancers! ~Ruby
The Sun shifted into communicative Gemini on May 20th, 2020, and transits this sign through June 21st.
This influence usually brings about change and some disruption. One thing is for sure, we can struggle with feeling restless, nervous, or anxiety-ridden. The best thing you can do for that is to stay mentally and physically active! This is a chatty, communicative kind of energy, so lots of interesting conversations seem to occur during this time. But there’s is another side to Gemini’s twining energy that can have us feeling more withdrawn and reflective, so we can enjoy our alone time as well.
The sign of Gemini rules over things like friendship, and with Venus the Goddess of Love, also in Gemini and in Retrograde currently, we might meet up with certain people who have inspired us to be more romantic, beautiful, and artistic in the past. Allow these muses to help you move forward, but don’t get lost in your feelings, as the fantasy will eventually break and reality will come back in once Venus is out of Retrograde.
This highly stimulating energy can have our heads spinning with quick and fleeting thoughts. But since we thoroughly enjoy communicating during this time, and sharing ideas and opinions, we may reach out to others more so than usual. It’s a time to network and mingle, but remember social distancing. Our minds are moving quicker than usual, as our thoughts jump from one subject and task to the next. So stick to activities during this cycle that involves communicating like emails, paperwork, messaging or phone calls. It’s great energy for multi-tasking.
The shadowy side of this Gemini energy is we can be more easily distracted, and it can be more difficult to focus, so we can be unreliable without meaning to be. We may have to keep redirecting ourselves or others if we want to get things accomplished. We can be very hard working especially mentally, so we can burn out fast. Try to take breaks when you can and remember you can’t get it all done at once. Make lists, use Alexa or Google Home to set reminders, you’re going to need this help, as this can be an extremely busy Gemini Season, even more so than usual.
Mercury and Venus In Gemini – The reason why this is an incredibly busy Gemini Season, is because not only is the Sun in Gemini but so is relationship-ruled Venus and soon cerebral Mercury! This is our core-self, ego, heart, and mind all wrapped up in the Gemini energy. We can be sidetracked and scattered, as we readbetween the lines and feel the energies all around us.
Mercury rules our way of thinking, so our thoughts will move just that much more quickly over the next three and a half weeks. Under these influences doors of opportunity may swing wide open, but also they can slam shut! Problems can be easier to figure out because our empathy for others is so strong, and our psychic hunches are on point! Sincecommunicating is usually so much stronger during this cycle there will be a lot of information shared, so just don’t tell everyone all your business. Knowledge and diversity are more important at this time, and we can feel more sociable, intellectual, and curious under these influences. But our energies can scatter as a direct result of our curiosity and awareness. Being more communicative, and open to having conversations can lead to opportunities that we normally wouldn’t get a chance to discover.
If you feel overwhelmed by these energies your moods can change suddenly, and go up and down. Even if we feel good and are active, as we are still prone to nervousness and excitability. This can lead to feeling more frustrated, so we can blow up in anger quite quickly! And with Mars moving into Aries soon in June, (the planet that rules our motivation levels, passion, and anger) we can get riled up fast, so take some time to get calm if you get frustrated over something.
It’s a good time for gathering and processing information. Read, write, research, and take care of business or run errands. Make only short-term deals and no long-lasting commitments, because we are supposed to be just collecting information for now, as it can be important or valuable down the road. It’s also important to take breaks and get physical activity. This can help our minds relax, so we can get rest. A lot of folks suffer from insomnia and have issues with vivid dreams, both awake and asleep under such strong Gemini energy. Be social and look for different and interesting people to hang with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles.
