Scorpio Season For All

Sun Enters Scorpio

Oct 22, 2020 – Nov 21, 2020


For All Zodiac Signs 

The Sun shifted into the sign of transformation, and mystery, Scorpio. “Scorpio Season” begins Oct 22, 2020, and runs through Nov 21, 2020.


The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio energy drives us to explore the depths of the soul. As the Sun’s light exposes the truth, and all that has been hidden, repressed, secret, or ignored tends to come out. So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, clean it up now, or you might just get found out.


The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed for what it is, including conversations and betrayals. Superficial anything doesn’t work during this time, because we want the real deal. We need to know that people are genuine and authentic.


Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence in Scorpio can have you feeling more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are more interested in getting to the bottom of things, as we want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown! It’s a time when we see the unseen with our uncanny Psychic abilities. So we can pick up on the energies around us very quickly. Even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual during this time. We enjoy things and people that are odd, taboo, or different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring.


During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. During Scorpio season, we accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human, and to truly evolve we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to begin something anew.


Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be more secretive, as we feel more passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. This can be a time of transformation and healing.


The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. We can become obsessed over an issue or problem, and try to figure it out repeatedly, and get nowhere as we continue to dig deeper to learn or understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough or when to quit!


Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Scorpio through Oct 27, due to Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) cycle. It travels back through the sign of Libra on Oct 27 through Nov 9, and then goes back into Scorpio from Nov 10 – 30. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with!


This Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes after something ends. We have fallen in some way or have had to give up, like the tales of the Phoenix! It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection, as we rise to specific challenges and above what has fallen around us! Scorpio Season affects all Zodiac Signs, as this energy is something we can learn from. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back, as we start to rebuild after the wild and crazy year we’ve had. It’s the best energy to renew ourselves under, because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina. We can be more driven and motivated to take care of business.

By the time we get to the end of November, and the end of Scorpio Season, hopefully, we will have some plans in place, since most of 2020 will be spent taking life day by day, and just surviving which is so exhausting. May this Scorpio Season illuminated by the Sun’s energy show you the way, and help you get through.


Stay Safe & Be Well

FULL MOON IN ARIES

October 1st 2020

For All Zodiac Signs

The Harvest Full Moon or Warrior Moon comes together Thursday, October 1st, 2020.

A Full Moon creates emotional energy, so this is when the issues in our life peak, which can be a good or bad situation. This lunation is the first of two Full Moon’s that occur in October, the second one being a Full “Blue Moon” on Halloween!

The Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aries this time around, Aries is ruled by Mars, and Mars is also transiting its home sign of Aries right now, also in Retrograde! In other words, this is a extremely passionate, heated up, fiery, driven kind of energy, so use it for good! There is revealing information coming through that can be deeply meaningful, but we should wait to take any action on whatever we learn. Just until the Full Moon energy wears down by the weekend.

The Full Moon is a time when the truth is revealed; as the light illuminates the planet, it also brings out uncomfortable feelings, but truth-telling is always on the menu as well as some insomnia! Which, by the way, is the number one question I get from clients and blog readers every month, “Why am I not sleeping?” Well, that’s easy; it’s the Full Moon energy that keeps us wired and awake.

It’s a time when our feelings tell us what’s happening, so our intuition is super strong, and we can experience epiphanies or A-ha moments, and Psychic visions or feelings can occur awake or asleep. This particular Full Moon serves as a reminder to think about how we treat ourselves in our close relationships or partnerships. There can be new moments of awareness or revelations about our roles as leaders so that we may have strong feelings of independence, and our ability to start or initiate something is much more on point.

Helping these energies along is a strong connection between relationship-ruling Venus and Pluto, the planet of transformation. This influence can help us be more strategic, but to the point about money and relationships, Venus turns which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just expect people to tell you how they really feel!

This Full Moon is connected firmly to the Mars/Saturn Square, as it can cause significant aggression and anger to erupt suddenly without little warning, especially with authority figures or those with power or control over us. Saturn, at its basic, is about the rules and responsibilities. In a tense, Square, there can be frustrations, agitation, and anger, again with anyone trying to exert power or control over us. And anyone is fair game! The emotions we hold deeply have been building up over the last month, and they can suddenly be exposed in one way or another. The Full Moon is when the Sun and Moon tensely oppose each other, which can feel intense. We’ve already been experiencing this for the last few days, with Fires still raging and all kinds of explosive crime and behavior. Most folks, will be challenged to not go off if they get angered for any reason.

However, if we focus on ourselves, we can feel empowered and set an excellent example for others. In turn, this kind of behavior can inspire others to do something for themselves. We need to be asking ourselves some questions under these energies. Who have you been taking care of, and where are you focusing most of your time and energy? Have you been coming from a self-centered place, by only helping someone for your own selfish reasons? Time to make it right! Remember the truth will indeed set you free in this kind of energy!

It’s a high energy kind of Full Moon, as we can feel extra energized and driven to begin or end certain situations. Being so focused can be distracting, so we may not realize that we’re dealing with something or someone toxic! Under this fiery Full Moon, we are more likely to take action due to feeling agitated. It’s essential to be mindful of this energy and harness our own personal power without abusing it, to avoid letting things get out of control.

But Full Moons always magnify existing problems, so it’s vital to decide how you want to move forward peacefully. This influence can help us get out of a bad situation that is toxic or abusive. If you need to express your feelings, this energy can help you be brave. Which, hopefully, enables you to get out of bad situation or relationship. But be careful, it’s still very explosive energy. So if you need to end something, be prepared and ready.

This lunation also activates other cosmic bodies that can set our tempers off, so there can be errors in judgment due to feeling extra sensitive and getting more easily upset. It creates a highly charged-up atmosphere, and people can be very impulsive. It can be a chaotic feeling Full Moon and energy! Some folks can act like they have no sense, and will react without much forethought, and can suddenly lash out. This energy, unfortunately, can cause outrage, rebellion, and tempers to flare at its worst. There can be more rioting and violence around the protests.

However, as this Full Moon tension builds and the frustrations rise, it’s important to remember the best way to handle it. Which is to Let Go and release all that pent up anger by being OPEN, FLEXIBLE, and adapting to the changes that are happening around you. Please don’t get into power struggles, ego battles, or disputes; it is not worth it! Remember that when people are this riled up, they can’t hear you. They are deaf! Especially, if they suffer from any natural Impulsivity issues, because they’re too busy talking over you or thinking about their next sentence, it won’t be about your opinions or ideas under these energies. So most of the time, it’s just best to walk away from arguments for the next few days. Take a breath and a walk, if you feel yourself getting upset or agitated just simply get away from the situation as fast as you can to cool down.

Harness this powerful Full Moon energy over the next few days, and don’t forget this is a powerful time to “Set Intentions” with the Moon’s energies, just simply write put a wish list of what you want to release or let go of in your life, and then add what you would like to see come in to your world. Your dreams and desires. To learn more about how to Set Intentions, click the link below.

Setting Intentions with the Full Moon

“Setting Intentions with the Full Moon” 

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

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


What to Release under a Full Moon:

* Lower energies

* Negative patterns or bad habits

* Unhealthy situations or relationships


What to work on during the Full Moon:

*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes this is just an attitude or thought

*Clearing space for new energies to come in

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


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

Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But remember often this kind of work is magical and sometimes the things you want or ask for just show up! The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for helping us see all that has been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time. 



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

Step One: Clear your Sacred Space


Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in positive energies to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair, it feels safe and secure because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.


Step Two: Set the Atmosphere

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


Step Three: Let It Out

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

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

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


Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating

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


Step Five: Gratitude

It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that can of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing! 

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


Happy Full Moon

Autumn Equinox/Mabon

Autumn Equinox 2020 

For All Zodiac Signs 

Starting September 22nd marked the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox. We have shifted into a completely different cosmic energy, but there’s nothing to fear, as we have already been through one of the roughest years of our time. But this energetic shift will help ease tensions and bring some calm into the mix.

This Equinox is the turning point of the year and marks when the Sun shifts into Libra, and this is also called “Libra Season.”

Libra’s energy is all about finding balance and learning how to live in harmony with others, but particularly in our relationships. This sign teaches all of us to look at life from a more compassionate view, as we strive to be more accommodating. Generally speaking, this sign helps us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.

As the Sun shifts into Libra on the Equinox, we finally get the opportunity to experience something new or different. This shift in energy will help us focus on allowing our goals to meet there fullest potential. The Cosmic stew of energies we’ve been going through has already been difficult on Mother Nature, so she is still in a massive cleansing process that was initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. Not to make light of the devastation, we also must look at all sides to any given situation while under the Libra influence. So even though the wildfires have been destructive, there is one good thing that comes out of this tragedy, a light at the end of the dark tunnel, and that is the Fires are also cleansing and clearing away old energies. From the ashes, new life will submerge over time, and new beginnings will happen physically but also energetically!

As the Equinox occurs, you’re invited to work on balancing your life, and find some kind of stability along the way. However, as we work on getting our equilibrium back, we still have to take on some life lessons at first. Try to accept the challenges, and understand this is a process we must go through. The Universe will test and challenge you, but these lessons often help us evolve a grow in the process.

Starting September 22nd, the Cosmic energies slow down. So as we enter this major shift, balance will finally start to happen. This influence gives us those moments where we can catch our breath and take a break from time to time. The planet has been going through a lot. Now is the time when the Universe starts a recovery process, even if it lasts longer than usual. This shift serves as a reminder to deal with the things we had to put off, (probably due to the pandemic) or to get caught back up with the things we just couldn’t get done. The last quarter of 2020 will be a time to get caught up as much as you can.

As new paths open and important information is revealed, our perspective will shift, as the Equinox’s energies can help smooth things over as we adjust. It is a very important time to embrace all that is happening now and not hide from it. So trust your intuition and inner voice to guide you through this time.

Many of you are feeling drained or exhausted from being locked down or held back. But once you get on the right path, things will start to calm down. Our creativity will be super strong and potent during this energy shift, so take some time to reflect on what you have been doing this year, so you can create what you want to happen during the last part of 2020.

Don’t look back, as the past is behind you now, and focus on creating a bright and amazing future instead. Visualize your future (Pandemic Free), and see what you want to happen next in your life, personal finances and then the trick is to feel it before it happens. In other words, see yourself happy and experiencing the things you desire, and with your heart and soul just simply feel it!

The energy rolling in now should help you with the more difficult issues we’re facing. This shift kicks off the beginning stages of recovery for ourselves and our planet. Just give all of this energy time to come together, and allow these new energies to flow just where they need to. Try to stay as positive as you can and focus on what is to come, because it truly makes a difference, even if things don’t appear that way at first. Patience is key to your success now.

Mars & Pluto Square Off!

Astro Alert! 🌟
For All Zodiac Signs

What a time to be alive as they say! The world has seemed to have gone mad in 2020, and to keep this exciting theme going the Cosmos is sending out some heavy-hitting energies this coming week starting August 10th. So forewarned is forearmed, and I have some information to pass on that hopefully will help you navigate through the tension Cosmic energies coming together!

Mars is making a tense Square to Pluto!

Mars the planet of aggression and passion is currently in its own sign of Aries, so this is warrior kind of energy. Pluto makes us thirsty for power and creates chaos, but it also brings deep personal transformation. Pluto is in security-based Capricorn currently stirring us up to gain power by marching to the beat of our own drum. This energy is like a match being lit to the flames that are already burning. Those who seek power or control on any level can get quite demanding, and just plain nasty, and especially manipulative during this time. We can struggle with any power plays or moves made on us by others, and we may have to deal with this kind of behavior from those who have some sort of authority over us, as we try to figure out just where we stand. This can be a time of great upset, trial, and tribulation. This influence can have us erupting in anger, and even rage! We are already seeing lots of upset globally, as people may not be able to handle the rage they feel deep inside over basic human needs and survival.

There are three frustrating squares between Mars and Pluto in 2020. The first one is on August 13th, but some will notice this energy starting up now!

When a planet meets up with Pluto they can get quite beat up by its demanding energy, and we can feel this energy and explore it deeply, as certain situations will play out bringing issues of power and control in strong focus in our lives! But war-like Mars loves a good fight, and this aspect challenges us to figure out who has the power and control in our lives. This can be with other people and society as a whole, (like things haven’t been already heated up enough with the powers that be in the US) but especially with those who have some sort of authority, power, or control over us, and of course those that want to! We might be asking who has the most power in the land. This square energy creates tension, but this helps us learn more about ourselves. Pluto has been connecting to many different planets this year putting us through major changes in our lives. We are already in a strong time of transformation, with powerful Pluto making its strong meetings this year also to stern Saturn and boosting Jupiter.

It’s most important that we pay attention to our reactions at this time, especially with authority figures. Try to figure out just what the real issues are underneath it all, and what’s causing our reactions. Anger is always about sadness, so perhaps you need to argue a bit so you can walk away from someone or something, and or even make a significant change! The best thing you can do is to remain respectful, and not fight below the belt while in this energy or it can get quite ugly! You also may want to think about controlling your responses to keep the damage down to a minimum, but you may not care, as there’s a stronger need to fight in the air right now. And some folks need to stick up for themselves and what they believe in, or for what is right. It’s something to definitely, ponder on, so you can use this energy for good.

Mars shift into fiery Aries!



Mars the planet that rules over our motivation, physical actions, assertive drive, ambition, passion, war, and sexual drive shifts signs on June 26, 2020, into more fast-paced, impulsive Aries all the way through January 6th, 2021. That is a really long time for Mars to be in one sign. Its extended stay in trailblazing Aries is due to its upcoming Retrograde phase, which starts on Sept. 9th and runs through Nov. 13th.

Mars is exceptionally comfortable in its home sign of Aries, as it’s ruler naturally. Our energy levels are stronger than usual, and we are more spontaneous, forward-looking, and bolder, and courageous under its influence, as it tends to get things moving so we are more active and confident. If we just follow our instincts, we can get things done super fast and precisely.

As Mars shifts into Aries this week, you’ll notice a definite surge in energy, motivation, and initiative. You don’t need anyone else to light that fire under you to get you going when Mars is transiting Aries. Talk about the ultimate self-starter. With this competitive, entrepreneurial energy in the sky, you will definitely want to begin a personal project. In addition to the remarkable energizer battery of Mars in Aries, you will also notice plenty of courage and fighting spirit. You will not back down from anything or anyone! Just remember, neither will others so expect an argument or a fight if there’s a situation you and someone else butt heads over. At least it will be an honest battle, though as Mars in Aries is not going to allow us to hide anything especially, our agendas.

After all, Mars is the planet of war, anger, and challenges, especially in its own sign of Aries the Warrior! So it tends to cause tension, restlessness, and anxiety for some. However, this also can be a very positive influence that gives us lots of energy. But we must be careful not to lose our cool. We have a strong competitive spirit as our goal is to win! But what are you battling for.? What are you winning in the end? Is it worth it? You are going to need to ask yourself these questions, as this influence can help us stay on task and motivated, but it also can cause impulsive behavior that can get people all fired up over much of nothing! Like things haven’t been heated-up enough out there! This energy could really make protests explode even more so, however with the Virus spreading like wildfire again, we are made to stay in once again, so we are going to need ways to get this energy out, so we don’t let it turn into anger.

Mars in Aries gives us a warrior-like attitude, therefore, its influence can spark up debates and discussions where we feel compelled to share our opinions and defend ourselves. Social media has already been exploding due to our current ongoing circumstances, so many of you will be sharing your frustrations, and there will be more arguing, of course. But remember, ask yourself if it’s worth it or not first.

When it comes to your sex life, expect a boost in libido. With Mars in Aries, we want immediate gratification and will do whatever it takes to get our needs met. There’s so much dynamic energy around this placement that you may wonder if there’s anything to worry about. Well, as with any planetary alignment, there’s a positive expression and a not so positive one. When Mars in Aries shines its light, we become fearless warriors or innovative pioneers. When it’s operating in the shadow, however, we can be rash, impatient, and selfish.

The darker side of Mars being in the sign of Aries is that we can sometimes be impatient, arrogant, impulsive, and self-centered! But if we can remember to take time out’s and not let our tempers get lit up so fast, as we can also be more authentic, enthusiastic, and straightforward. But we can also be quite narcissistic and not think of others as much, so don’t expect folks to be so worried about your “feelings”, as this is a time when we think ahead, and we are not as worried about the past. This can be challenging with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the sign of Cancer through the end of July! The sign of Cancer is all about being sensitive and worrying about other folk’s feelings, so the polar opposite of Aries and Mars, both. So we can feel pushed and pulled or even just reminded that we should care, but at the same time, we may not be feeling it!

If we pay attention and harness this Mars in Aries energy, we can be so productive and get so much done. Just remember people tend to take impulsive actions during this time, so often there are mistakes, mishaps, and accidents. It may take a week or so to get used to this energy, so we need to be a little extra careful, and take some extra precautions to stay safe, as some people are going to get more easily frustrated and aggressive under its influence. If we can take on a strategic kind of attitude, we can plan ahead and get things done in ways we never thought of, we have to be mindful and remember to not react without thinking things through first, which is always the most difficult challenge with Mars in Aries. Under the tense and frustrating energy we have already been dealing with due to COVID and the rioting, we must work extra hard to keep our cool and make sure that things remain calm, otherwise, it could be a bigger mess than we are already in.

Stay Safe & Be Well,

Summer Solstice & The Sun In Cancer

The Summer Solstice & The Sun in Cancer

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!

Mercury Retrograde June 2020


Mercury Retrograde June 2020

For All Zodiac Signs:

Here we go again! Those two dreaded words are once again upon us, as “Mercury Retrograde” starts on June 18th and runs through July 12th!


Mercury Retrograde is usually quite annoying to most people as it causes communication and technology breakdowns, and it can bring delays with travel and shipments. However, this isn’t one of my normal anti-Mercury Retrograde write-ups, as this particular backward cycle of Mercury can likely be somewhat of a good influence as well. I know it’s an interesting turn of events! But rather than just being mischievous the trickster planet, Mercury might bring in some luck for some folks, as it makes a strong connection to the star, Sirius! So even as annoying as Mercury Retrograde can be at least this time around it can bring some success and wealth as well.

This Mercury in Retrograde is in the sign of Cancer, (June 21st-July 22nd) so it does tend to affect those with Cancer astrological placements in their personal “Natal Astrology Charts” a bit more strong, but it runs much deeper than that and affects all of us no matter what Signs we have.

Now there will also be challenges with this Mercury in Retrograde cycle as it’s aspecting the Eclipse on June 21st. The first part of the actual Retrograde cycle starts on the 18th can be bumpy folks, with travel issues that include driving or flying especially. There will be delays and cancellations of all kinds in all situations. And computer and online problems that affect both personal and business can be a really big issue this go around. 



Three Phases of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle:

June 2 to 18 – Pre-Shadow period before Mercury goes Retrograde, as it slows down

During this Shadow phase, you get a sample of what part of your life this particular Mercury Retrograde will affect


June 18 to July 12 – Is the Actual Retrograde Phase

During the actual Retrograde phase, we deal mainly with miscommunications and annoying technical glitches, this time I think we’ll see a whole lot of folks get visited from both friends and lovers from their past, as Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon and this brings up our past experiences to review and helps us tap into our unconscious mind. 


July 12 to 26 – The after Shadow phase that lasts until Mercury leaves Retrograde.

The after Shadow period is when things get wonky again at first, as we slowly get back to normal, at least we start to feel like we are mentally moving forward again and eventually back to some kind of normalcy. 


There are certain things we should be doing during a Mercury Retrogrades cycle, like starting something over or finishing up projects we’ve already started. Remember Mercury represents the mind and how we perceive information, so when in Retrograde it is a time to go back over things and reassess our lives. We should revise plans and personal goals perhaps, revisit anything that needs to be worked on, reconnect with loved ones, and business contacts, and redo just about anything if it helps, and usually, it does during this time. Refresh your life by doing things over again, and ask lots of questions. Otherwise, Mercury can be one giant headache for ya, especially if you try to push forward with brand-new plans, it just doesn’t usually work out so well. 

One of the best things you can do during any Mercury Retrograde cycle is to write things down, take notes, and do anything you can to remember, taking these simple actions can make this whole Mercury in Retrograde experience so much easier to get through and navigate. These little mistakes and going back and doing things over can lead to it being a time of growth and personal development. 

Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets, as is happening for a reason. This isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to appear to move backward in the future every year. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and take a break from our overloaded plugged-in lives. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycles energy takes hold is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.

Here’s a basic list of Do’s and Don’t that can help you get through this rather confusing time. Make sure to share this Blog with others so they can be enlightened and understand all about Mercury Retrograde time.


What Not To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:

– Don’t start brand new projects

– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks, and tense people or situations.

– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements

– Avoid Travel

– Do Not take misunderstandings personally. Our communication is foggy and cloudy.


What To Do during Mercury in Retrograde:

– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.

– Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.

– Re-visit anything that needs fixing or even if you have a question. 

– Re-connect with folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.

– Backup Computers and data that needs saved, it’s best to do this during the Shadow Phases.

– Re-organize your daily routines.

– Declutter

– Reflect and practice spiritual and energy work.

– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working in your life, especially in your intimate relationships.


With Mercury in Retrograde cycles, we just have to be prepared is all, and it’s important to remember during this particular Mercury in Rx phase to do whatever it takes to REMEMBER things. These cycles are not meant to be as aggravating as they seem to be. In a perfect world, if we were to just take some time off from our everyday routines, (like we have been forced to do with COVID going around) it would be a much easier time to navigate. However, if you choose to go against this cycle’s natural flow you will probably get stressed out by something. It is a time to pause and reflect, as this helps us gain new perspectives and maybe realize something we had missed before. This cycle gives us the opportunity to fix things and get them right or the way we want them. Get prepared and try to do something to keep your mind busy during this Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it can help you get through it must more quickly.

Have a safe and easy going Mercury in Retro time folks,

June Astro Update-PT 1

Rubys Astro Readings 🌟
First Part of June Astro Update
For All Zodiac Signs 💫


There is so much going on in the world right now, I honestly didn’t have time to write all of June’s Astro Updates. But here is some info about the first half of the month, especially during the first week.
~Ruby


The first half of June 2020 can be a bit confusing, as underlying tensions seem to be coming out to be dealt with. Even though around the 3rd we could have some lovely things to say with the Sun/Venus Conjunction, a rather tense aspect when the Sun squares heated up Mars in Pisces can bring up and out the truth in our relationships, and that might not be so pretty. But at least we won’t have a problem being honest with each other.

The Sun conjuncts Venus from the 3rd to the 5th, and this might just be a welcome reprieve from all the hostility and anger of the past week. It won’t last too long folks due to the Full Moon energies and all the other cosmic connections underway. But we might just be able to find some light at the end of the tunnel, as our inner light gets to shine once again and take over the darkness. Use this time to find some inner peace within and hold onto that feeling, and hold onto that energy for as long as you possibly can!

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is also a Lunar Eclipse on the 5th, and this means it’s truth-telling time. So if you’ve got secrets you may want to come clean now before this energy hits. When the Full Moon gets into an intense square with both warlike Mars and delusional Neptune, our discussions may get too real, and our fantasies are called out for the illusions they are. It’s a time when mistakes are pointed out, and some folks may not be able to handle it. When Mercury forms a tense square to wounded healer Chiron at the same time self-doubt can kick in, and we can lose our confidence. During this time, it’s best to not believe everything you hear, read, or think. Depression may also set in, so make sure to keep communicating the way the Sun in Gemini intended, and talk to someone about your sadness.

From June 1st through the 10th, tensions will be high, especially when the Sun forms a tense square to Mars on June 6th. These influences are a test and we can be challenged by competitors and enemies. Basically, if things don’t calm down with the violence associated with the protests, a lot of people will feel like taking matters into their own hands and decide to come out and join the crowds, while hoping that things will calm back down. People are more than ready to take a stand now, but not allow their towns or businesses to be destroyed at the same time. The National Guard might just get called in, but only if it goes this far. The aspect coming together on June 6th will be felt during the first week of June and it is a build of angry energy. It could be from the lockdown due to the Virus, and the anger folks are carrying around from the events in Minneapolis last week. If you feel resentful or angry within yourself, try to do what you can peacefully, it’s ok to go to a March but don’t destroy property. Do not allow this rage to consume you. If we are not at ease within ourselves often the body will take on disease of some kind, so remember that.

As Mars transits through the sign of Pisces axnd the Sun in Gemini, there can be more lies, deceptions, and betrayal that comes out. Things are not what they seem and the media is not being completely honest on what they are reporting, go figure! There is a lot more happening behind the scenes with this crisis in the US. So there is more to the story! Life will not be peaceful during this time, so it’s important to find that space of peace within yourself during these times. There is a lot of emotional unrest with the planet of War, Mars being in the sign of Pisces the sign of healing over the next week.

On June 11th the Sun squares foggy Neptune, and motivated Mars is conjunct Neptune a few days later. This energy can make us feel like escaping from our normal routines, and doing something new or different. Otherwise, we can feel helpless and anxious. So don’t be discouraged if things don’t turn out exactly as you might have liked. Take a break and get away for a little while.

On June 18th, mental Mercury in Cancer (it has been slowing down and getting ready) as it goes into its Retrograde phase. So except for Mars, all the personal planets will appear to be moving backward through the Zodiac and be in their Retrograde phases. It is a good time to think about all that has happened over the last few months because my goodness has there been a lot! This is a time to go within yourselves and review all that you have been through and feeling. Work on healing yourselves and your hearts.

Plz Stay Safe & Be Well

A Full Moon & Eclipse Season Begins

For All Zodiac Signs 

Friday afternoon on June 5th, 2020 the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Sagittarius, at 15 degrees.


Full Moon Peak Times by Time Zone

3:12 PM EST
2:12 PM CST
1:12 PM MST
12:12 PM PST
8:12 PM London


Full Moons are about relationships and a Lunar Eclipse pushes us to look more deeply at our needs, lacks, and wants. This help us balance the Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun in Gemini energies. Sagittarius represents the higher mind, and Gemini the lower mind. Sagittarius energy is all about the adventure and thirst for knowledge, and ideas that help us expand our minds, as it teaches us to listen more to our intuition and to think in a bigger and broader way. Gemini energy is more interested in the here and now, and can help us to feel more comfortable with where we are in the present moment, in our own community and neighborhood. This Sagittarius energy wants us to explore and go beyond our normal boundaries.

Striking a balance between these Sun and Moon energies can be quite helpful during the Full Moon cycle. The Lunar Eclipse is about communication, attitude, and our sense of adventure. With these energies building up inside of us, now is the time when the Cosmos is pushing for us to let out our emotions. Later on, once this all is done, we will understand more, but for now, it can be extremely difficult to just not express our feelings, as they need to be let out.

There can be an inner crisis of consciousness, and a moment where we suddenly are made aware of a part of our lives we just have not been happy with. This influence allows us to explore what we need emotionally. This can be quite a challenging time for relationships, as they are either broken down or made even stronger. Whatever happens, we can feel quite emotionally charged up so this can lead to some Full Moon drama! Full Moon’s are a time of truth, and we can experience some sort of Ah-Ha moment, or epiphany and suddenly be made aware of something, often this about what is lacking in our lives. This knowingness or understanding can help to motivate us to take some positive actions, although the path getting there can be chaotic.

The Moon is involved in several challenging connections during its Full Moon phase. Like a tense square to fiery Mars in Aries, so our anger and passion can be fueled by this energy, and if we get emotional we can get quite upset.

The Moon is also opposite the planet of love & values, Venus in its Retrograde phase and Gemini. This can be a challenging time for couples and relationships, starting June 3rd through June 7th. Lessons are being handed out to even the strongest of relationships. It’s a time of patience with both lovers and friends. So if you are already committed to any relationship, be it personal or professional and you’ve already been having problems, this Eclipse can cause sole problems. Now for some folks, it can potentially end a relationship, usually, it’s the ones that need to be done in the first place.

On a global level anger can escalate quite quickly, and we can experience feeling angry and even sort of sad. There can be higher rates of crime and violence during this time. The weather can get rather pumped up as well, because whenever there’s is a lot of frustration among the masses, usually, the weather starts to get destructive! So there might be bad storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and even earthquakes. The Eclipse influence brings up these angry feelings to the forefront, especially if we’ve been sitting with these feelings and just brewing for a while.

If you notice you are on the edge of losing your cool, find a healthy way to release that energy! We still are going to be under the Full Moon influence, which is a time to let go and release the feelings and things that are no longer working. Also, you can do some things to help keep you calm, by shifting your focus to things like exercise, meditation, and energy healing work like Reiki, and most importantly self-care. It’s all too easy to lose our tempers with a loved one, or we may end up having to deal with someone else who’s upset and take on their energy! If you’re out and about just remember people are already on edge. But through Astrology, you know, and that is a powerful thing, my friends. Just by understanding what’s is happening and why can make such a huge difference in how you handle and work through this energy because you already know.



Love Can Be Strange

The Lunar eclipse also opposes lovely Venus. Pay attention folks, Venus is in Retrograde currently, so you should be careful whom you get romantically involved with if you are single.you can end up lowering your standards if you get too lonely and get involved with someone who’s toxic and not a true soul mate, but a life lesson instead!

Also, Venus in Retrograde often brings back old friends and lovers, this is to work some sort of Karma out usually, so you both can have closure. This doesn’t mean because an ex-lover shows up that you are destined to be together, usually, it’s quite the opposite. But a very soulful meeting can happen, and some of you might find a soul mate as well. Be extra careful and commit to nothing until after Venus and Mercury are out of Retrograde.

The Cosmic lovers, Venus & Mars are also in a tense position together. During the Eclipse this can amp up conflicts, anger, and impulsive behavior! Women are more susceptible to losing their cool and getting irritated than the men right now.

During the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, we need to try to make some extra time and effort to promote peace and harmony no matter what we are doing. But that good feeling energy out there, filled with love and compassion. Being patient can be quite important, as it helps stop frustrations from growing out of control.

Focus on one task at a time, and concentrate all your energies on it, rather than falling into the heavier energies of the Eclipse as it can take up most of your time and energy. Staying busy doing tasks will help you work through your frustrations, which makes it a good time to organize your life, declutter, and make space so that better energies can come into your life.


All about Eclipse Season

During an Eclipse Season, there are two or three Eclipses, and it lasts for around 36 days. During this time the Full Moon’s are part of the Lunar Eclipse and the New Moon is part of a Solar Eclipse. This Eclipse Season starts on June 1st and ends on July 8th. These energies will be felt most during this time. There are three Eclipses this time around,

June 5th – Full Moon in Sagittarius – Lunar Eclipse

June 21st – New Moon in Cancer – Solar Eclipse

July 5th Full – Moon in Capricorn Lunar Eclipse


If you happen to have a Birthday fall during or around the Eclipses, this next year can be full of interesting twists and turns and full of exciting changes. Eclipse Seasons are always full of strange energy, as out of the ordinary experiences just seem to happen and often there are some shocking surprises along the way as well. But remember good surprises occur as well. These influences can put us on a path we have no choice but to go down, but these are strong lessons we must learn to grow from. And usually, they are a necessity to help us become whom we are meant to be. Eclipses are interesting as they don’t seem to have any rhyme or reason to them, some folks can experience life-changing events while others experience nothing different or out of the ordinary. This is not about luck or curses, it because each of us has our own unique experiences on this journey through life, and the energies of the Eclipses are going to affect us the way they were destined to.

Eclipse Season is usually unpredictable, this energy can bring us to our breaking point as the pressure builds. We may have strong reactions that we didn’t even see coming or expect, so stay mindful of how you are reacting, and sometimes no reaction is the best statement you can make. Many of you will experience some sort of random Ah-Ha moment. Often both situations are happening all at once. Eclipses are intense and often they put us through some seriously challenging lessons that usually would take a much longer time to go through, so we are being thrown into the pressure cooker and expected to rise above any challenges we face. Things like relationships that you might have thought were going to work out, suddenly end fast, or a project you have been working on for a very long time that was about to take off suddenly has issues, and is held back now to get something fixed. The bottom line is even if we feel like we have everything all worked out, this Eclipse energy can leave us feeling chaotic and out of control if we let it.

However, don’t worry and fear this upcoming Eclipse Season, because the change that is being thrust upon us needs to happen for a reason, so it will in one way or another. Destiny is taking a hand and fate is in control. Even though this first Eclipse Season of the summer can be challenging at times, it also can bring in some much-needed positive changes, especially after it’s over it occurs.

Have a Blessed Full Moon

Gemini Season for All the Signs!

Sun in Gemini – A time of movement!

For All Zodiac Signs 

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.

Mental Slowdown – Mercury in Taurus

Mental Slowdown 

Mental Mercury enters the sign of Taurus today, it stays there through May 11th.

This energy tends to slow our minds way down, especially with it also being Taurus Season (the Sun in Taurus.) So things aren’t going to be moving as quickly as they have been, and we can feel somewhat stuck. Especially with the ongoing virus situation.

We tend to be more down to earth, stable, and grounded with Mercury in Taurus, and our common sense is stronger, but our fantasies may be put on hold for the time being. We can come off more deliberate, and sometimes harsh under this influence, but it can be easier to communicate our emotions.

We will stick to what’s worked for us in the past, and who’s been tried and true, as our tribe means everything during this time. And we can be stubborn about using new solutions to solve problems, so trying new things isn’t so easy. Our focus is stronger as we can pay attention to one thing at a time, which can help make life more simple in these complicated times.

Be mindful of being overly strict or conservative. Don’t get too stubborn with your thoughts and opinions, and allow others to share how they are feeling during this cycle. 

Be Well
