Sun and Mercury in Gemini

A Time For Communication!

For All Zodiac Signs 


The Sun shifts gears into communicative Gemini today, its influence may bring about change and some disruption during its time through June 21. We are highly stimulated and need to talk, and to reach out to others and share ideas. Our thoughts may be quite scattered during this time. Jumping from one thing to the next involving anything that has to do with communication, like through emails, texts, and phone calls of course. It’s a great time to channel this energy into productive activity, catch up with some correspondence or paperwork. This can be a good time to multi-task, so stay busy to keep yourself distracted, but don’t overdo it! Perhaps try to focus on one thing at a time if you feel overwhelmed, you can’t get it all done at once no matter how hard you try. What work are you busy with now?


Due to timing, it just happens that mental Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet, is shifting into its own sign of Gemini today as well. This means our core self, ego, and minds are going to be quite scattered and very aware of the energies all around us that we maybe can’t normally see. Doors suddenly open and close during this time, but we can see between the lines like never before. This influences energy speeds up time and our lives, so the way we think and communicate will be at a much faster pace then what we’ve been doing while the Sun and Mercury were in much slower moving Taurus over the last month or so. Get rest you’re going to need it to keep up! 


We are definitely more chatty, but we also can be unreliable and unfocused. Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and curious under this influence. We tend to scatter our energies as a result of this curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, so we are open to talking about anything. Emotionally speaking our moods can swiftly change up and down, and even though we may feel more easy going and active, we’re still more prone to feeling nervous and excitable, which can lead to feelings of frustration and we can anger more quickly. With all this energy we can get overstimulated, and have a stronger need to talk and reach out to others and share our ideas and opinions. So be careful it’s all too easy to overshare information and tell to much. 


While the Moon and Mercury are both in the sign of Gemini we can feel nervous or more restless, so it’s best to keep yourself busy 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 later, as it can be quite valuable later on. It’s important to take breaks and get physically active during this time, this will help your mind relax. Be social and look for different and interesting people to mingle with. Your conversations may be quite informative during these cycles. 


Sun in Gemini May 21 – June 21

Mercury shifts into Taurus



Astro Alert – a time to focus!


For All Zodiac Signs

Mental Mercury rules over our minds and how we express ourselves! Mercury changes signs into more practical Taurus on May 6 and stays through May 21.

This is a huge shift for all of us. We’ve been under a lot of fiery fast-moving planets since the end of February, and this is the last planet to shift out of that energy! Now the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and soon Venus all will be in the sign of Taurus. This definitely helps us feel more down to earth, stable, and grounded, which will be a nice change of pace but maybe take a few days to get used to. So if you feel tired or unmotivated, don’t worry it won’t last for too terribly long. Just no its a time to pay attention and move slowly.

However, we can feel so slowed down that we need to watch ourselves for feeling to down. This influence does help us use our common sense instead of being so impulsive. We tend to communicate still quite deliberately under this influence, and we can get right to the point and be a tad bit aggressive if we aren’t careful. But we also like to stick to what has worked in the past, so we would rather work with tried and true methods that have worked in the past, instead of finding new ways of doing things.

Our attention is more focused on doing one thing at a time, which can help keep our lives more simple as we should work really hard at what we want and manifest something for ourselves! We need to keep ourselves in check however, for being too rigid, stubborn, or conservative in our way of thinking.

Otherwise, enjoy this time and stop and smell the roses” from time to time. Enjoy life and all its simple pleasures.

Saturn Goes Retrograde A Wake-Up Call!



Saturn Goes Retrograde
April 29 – Sept 18
By Rubys Readings


Nowadays, it’s become common knowledge to understand what Mercury in Retrograde is all about, but what you might not know is all the planets have a Retrograde cycle, which is when the planets appear to be moving backward in the sky! And these Cosmic shifts do cause significant changes and effects on all of us if we are aware of it or not! Saturn in Retrograde is considered to be a very powerful energy and marks a turning point in our lives. 

Starting April 29 the ringed-planet Saturn starts its five-month-long trip in its Retrograde cycle, through Sept 18.  This astrological event occurs just over every twelve months, lasting for nearly 4 and 1/2 months. Saturn Retrograde is not rare and lots of folks are born under one as well. This is a time of restrictions, blocks, limitations, and some anxiety and fear. The skills we learn during this Retrograde phase will prove essential to our growth for the long-term. In the coming days, you may feel off, weighed down, and disoriented, as once again our perspective shifts. But this is how we are affected by Retrograde planets at first anyway, at least until we have a chance to adjust to the shift in energy. 

Often it’s the very beginning and the end of these cycles (or commonly called Shadow Periods) that are the toughest or most challenging time. Just remember Retrograde cycles are always about perspective, so as these planets appear to be moving backward through the Cosmos, we too can feel like we’re going backward in our own lives, but it is a time to at least slow-down! 

During Saturn’s Retrograde cycle, it is a good time to revisit our relationships and work on any long-term goals we may have, as this is a time to pay close attention to our responsibilities and duties. It’s a time to restructure the way we manifest our reality and find new ways of thinking, and perhaps, adopt a different attitude about how to remove what is blocking us, or how to get through the obstacles that are in our way.

Saturn is known as the “Lord of Karma,” and while Retrograde it is a time when Karma is sorted out. Therefore, Saturn Retrograde can be a double dose of Karma handed-out. Karma is actually a form of energy that is very real, and like Saturn, it is very closely bound to time.

Over the next week, during the beginning of Saturn’s Retro phase, as it turns completely Retrograde, we may begin to feel the weight of it in certain situations quite heavily, especially around our responsibilities. Many of you will actually let go of certain commitments including relationships, jobs, or business deals, which can leave you wondering why you even bothered with them in the first place. We may feel somewhat disconnected and lose our motivation. It might be difficult to make important decisions during these influences, as our energy levels can be low. All of this is due to a change in perspective. We will learn how to find our footing and regain some sort of balance into next week, (into the first week of May), as we grow more accustomed to these shifts. Then we can turn Saturn’s Retrograde cycle into an opportunity, which is the most powerful way to see any Retrograde planet! Make this a time to go over and review your responsibilities, so you can figure out what’s working and what’s not. Take on any challenges you are dealing with and face your reality with gumption and make things happen, Saturn always rewards us for our hard work by the way. 

It’s important to slow down now and reconnect with what makes you feel useful, like your work, relationships, and duties. This, in fact, is not a good time to add anything to your existing responsibilities or duties, as the extra projects will just stress you out even more. We should be cutting back and reducing what we normally take on right now, it’s a time to make things simple folks! Any delays you happen to run in to now are just a kind reminder from the Universe that its time to make adjustments. This is a chance to make edits and corrections that are necessary for your success. This is a major time out from the Cosmos.

This influence has us take a look back at what we have already done or taken care of, so it can make you feel like you are moving backward and like you’re not moving forward. Actually, this is happening so you can review or go back over something that normally otherwise you wouldn’t have. Everything ruled by Saturn is under the microscope now and it’s a good idea to review these kinds of things. Like any rules or regulations you should be following, structures at work or in business, and traditions and foundations. Making changes to our ongoing projects or going over old ones can be successful, however, taking on new projects or responsibilities or commitments is probably not a great idea, it’s a time to simplify and restructure our lives first.

During Saturn’s Retrograde phase we will be dealing with particularly strong issues. Just remember as we take care of our unfinished business, Saturn is teaching us to be more patient and disciplined. Any skills we acquire during the retrograde phase will prove essential in the long-run to our success. 

Saturn’s lessons for all of us during its Retro phase is to take on certain responsibilities that we have already been developing or that are more important in our lives, so extra time is needed to take stock and to make sure everything is in order before we can continue. Saturn will present us with challenges and tests to make sure we are ready to take on these extra, but necessary responsibilities. The lessons we learn and that are taught by the Teacher of the Zodiac, Saturn, are often rough but they are valuable, and we are always rewarded by Saturn for our hard work and a job well done!

The shadow side to Saturn’s Retrograde is you may become sad or depressed, and not speak up for yourself, or act overly shy. If these behaviors get out of control during this time, then you’ll be offered a chance to recognize and admit you’ve got a problem. If this goes too far you can end up needed some help, so you can come out of your depression or isolation. Make sure and talk to someone if you start to feel down or too depressed, no matter what the planets are doing, there is always someone ready to listen and care more than you believe. 

This is an excellent time for schooling or training, but we may question it. There’s also going to be questions about our life, faith, and belief systems, as some folks will return to a Spiritual Path they started back in their past. We may need to tweak or edit a project that we plan on publishing or do something related to writing. Whatever you do during Saturn’s Retrograde, remember it’s a time to ride life straight and follow the rules, if you can do that you may learn a lot about life and gain some much needed and valuable insight that you can use for the long-term, and your future success.

May Monthly Forecast



The month of May might seem to start off a little slow but that’s due to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto’s very strong Retrograde phases, and with Mercury still in the impulsive sign of Aries, we may feel like making decisions but can be confused about what direction to take. One thing these Retrograde planets are doing is giving us grand ideas and inspiration, but our progress has sort of came to a standstill and it can feel like you’re trying to move a brick wall at times. This is a time to wait it out if at all possible, but I’ve learned most folks refuse to go with the flow of the Cosmic energies, unfortunately, so if you must make a major decision of some kind take into consideration this is a time of delays and cutbacks, and there can be many different things that try and stop you from making progress. But this is only temporary folks, we are only in Retrograde Season for the next three and half months. 


On May 1st the planets Uranus and Neptune from a somewhat tense semi-square for the last time, but you can feel this all week long. This long-term transit has been in play, off and on since August of 2017. With this aspect, we have been seeking inspiration in one way or as this connection grows stronger and forms once again, we might feel restless if our dreams are not coming together in a way we like or want, so we might need to make some sort of big change. We can easily deceive ourselves in some way or others believing we are going to get something that we just can not have at this time, as we can go on some sort of tangent and act on a whim. But only to realize after this influence breaks apart that it wasn’t going to stay together in the first place. In the weeks ahead with Mercury separating from Uranus by just one degree, our progressive ideas and inspired thoughts can start to come together.


A New Moon occurs on the 4th in the sign of Taurus, and we are more motivated to take charge of things, but we must be practical and use common sense to achieve what we want, especially if it has anything to do with making ourselves feel more safe or secure in some way. This is a good energy to think about your relationship with money and your possessions, and to learn what it is we truly value and what genuinely makes us feel more happy and content with life. We should be focusing on what it is we can do to increase our own feelings of self-worth, and how to make our lives more simple. This is also a great time to reconnect with the outside world, so with nature and our bodies, and to our senses, for example, what makes us feel good, like food, music, and sexual activity. Under this lunation, we can feel a sense of purpose and like we are on a mission, as we are ready to take on projects that bring personal pleasure. This is a manifesting New Moon under the sign of Taurus, so we should make sure to take some time to Set Intentions with the cosmos and write out our wish lists about what kind of energy and events we would like to see unfold next in our lives! What paths do you want to head down next? What would bring you the most pleasure?


Mercury makes a shift on May 6 into the sign of much more slowed-down Taurus, as it moves out of the fast-moving sign of Aries, so we can see big changes. This energy slows our thinking process and the way we communicate down a notch, as we enjoy living in the present moment and savoring all that is pleasurable and beautiful. Over the next month, our way thinking is more practical, and we now see our inspired ideas come alive and make a difference in the physical world. 


Venus is in Taurus from May 15-June 8 2019.Venus while in the sign of sensual and natural Taurus, can have us feeling more content but also possessive when it comes to love. We seek and value not only what’s been tried and true in the past in our relationships, but what will last and has staying power. Our desire for anything pleasurable it super strong, including our appetite, so lots of folks will be eating up their emotions! Under this Taurus energy, we are more focused on the here and now, or the present moment, as we want to explore what makes our senses come alive! With Venus in the sign of Taurus, we tend to show our love through physical expressions, and romance is very important to us now. We can get a little overbearing with the object of our affection and hold on tightly to someone we love, but we should be careful not to smother them. The shadow side of this excessiveness is we can treat our partners like objects that we own or just want to have around. And since Venus often rules over our finances or money, as well, we do look for a business to be practical and solid, but also want to only buy what is considered to be of higher quality (often what we cannot afford.) Holding on to our possessions is more likely now.


Mars is in Cancer from May 15-July 1 2019Mars carefully sidesteps through the sensitive, complicated waters of Cancer in May.  Mars is the planet of war and strategy, it rules over our physical actions and our passions. We will pursue our goals consistently, but we avoid a direct approach and go after these things in our own way and in our own time. We are less likely to move forward towards our desires and goals with Mars in the sign of Cancer. It is very important that we meet goals and plans, but we can end up diving into our own insecurities, vulnerabilities, hidden agendas, and old emotional wounds. We can learn how to use some self-nurturing tactics along the way. It may be difficult to control our temperament because our mood swings dictate how we do things or when we do them. We’re not overly aggressive but more defensive, as keeping our security is a priority! Therefore, we can be more cautious and conservative in this energy, but we will “Fight” for or on the behalf of those that are near and dear to our hearts.


The Full Moon occurs on May 18 in the sign of Scorpio. This Full Moon can make us feel totally restless. This energy has already been making some of you feel a little nervous over the past week or so, it can make us feel like something is wrong or about to happen. As with any Full Moon, we can feel pushed and pulled on under the Sun and Moon in their tense connection in two opposing signs, and this time around it’s between the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio. Luckily, this Full Moon is making harmonious connections to Pluto and Saturn which means we just might have exactly what we need to make some sort of change. This Full Moon energy has us digging deeply, it’s a time of transformation, strategy, love, and generosity, with no space for those who are being false. At its worst, this Scorpio energy can also cause issues with control, manipulation, jealousy, obsession, vengeance, deceit, paranoia, and we can feel overly suspicious. This Full Moon is a strong reminder that we need to think about those who are good to us and appreciate the folks who help with their love and support. We need to listen to others needs, wants, and opinions. This is a time of endings and rebirth.


Happy Gemini Season! On May 20, the Sun slips into more easier going Gemini, so our relationships may move beyond what is false or superficial, and we may just want to make a long-lasting commitment of some kind. A lot of folks tend to get engaged and married during Gemini Season for a reason. Any long-term investments you have been thinking of or planning out can be made now and that includes your relationships. This is a time when we enjoy meeting and schmoozing with others, as we can have all those wonderful brilliant conversations that are quite intellectually stimulating. This actually is a time to collect information and save it for later, you never know how valuable it might become.


A time for Healing! There are two rather nice influences for healing that come together on the 21 and 22, but can affect us weeks before these dates.

On the 21, powerful Pluto and Chiron, the wounded healer and teacher align, and this allows our creativity to flow strong, we are more clever when it comes to solving mysteries in our lives and for both ourselves and others, and when figuring out problems, particularly those issues that may have been holding us back in some way from our destined path in life, towards personal growth and development. Overall, this energy can help us see past human flaws and evolve for a higher purpose, which is about forgiveness and healing.

On the 22nd, dreamy Neptune forms a lovely trine connection with the destined North Node of the Moon, this is a beautiful time and an opportunity to get in touch with your intuition. This helps us trust ourselves to be on the right path toward our own personal improvement, growth, and enlightenment. But his is also a good time to release any negative energies that are holding us back from growing. During this time it might be easier to let go of matters that have caused us pain or frustrations. This is a wonderful few days to meet with others who support our same values, and some of them might even help us see our own potential more clearly.


Have a good and happy May, if you need help or guidance, or just some insight please contact me Ruby here.

Weekly Love Forecast

End of April first of May
For All Zodiac Signs 


There can be issues when it comes to communicating this week, as the energy can be touchy and sensitive, but as we leave the energy of April and move into May an amazingly romantic New Moon comes together. And whatever issues we drudge up over the week can be healed if we make an effort to do so.


Mental Mercury in fiery Aries will square off to both Saturn and Pluto, making this a week when words can be used as weapons, and what we say can really hurt. Instead, you could use your words to hurt someone else. Be careful folks, although you or your partner may feel compelled to express the truth in a to the point kind of way, there’s no way of telling just how badly you can hurt one another as a result!


Then, a New Moon in touchy-feely, sensual Taurus on Saturday makes a beautiful connection to the same planet Mercury that was challenging us at the beginning of the week. This is a time when we can get our physical and material needs in life and love met well. So perhaps any hurtful remarks that are made at the beginning of the week were meant to help open our hearts up, so we could heal something in the end after all.


Have a loving week folks

Pluto Goes Retrograde!

by Rubys Readings

Pluto Turns Retrograde (Backward) in the sign of Capricorn

April 24 – Oct 3rd
For All Zodiac Signs:

Welcome to the dark side of our human existence, the cosmic detective, powerful Pluto is starting it’s challenging Retrograde cycle today.

This energy can bring things out of the shadows into the light, so whatever is exposed might be a total shock to our system. Usually, this is regarding how we use and gain our own personal power when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. But by the end of this Retrograde cycle, the truth will hopefully set you free!

The beginning of this shift brings with it confusion, as it seems to intensify the problem areas of our life. At first there is a heaviness in the air with this energy, however, this is an excellent time for research, and for discovering new insights into our own issues about how to keep or gain control and use our own personal power! This transit helps us discover our own motives. We can be enlightened by the information we receive about our own self-destruction, as well as the planets, but this is also about our personal transformation and the path we are heading down.

Has someone been dishonest with you? Or have you been dishonest with yourself in some way or just in total denial? With the right attitude, whatever you discover during this cycle could take you from a breakdown to a breakthrough, and perhaps a major ah-ha discovery!

How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough power, and others get nervous when they have too much control, and then there are a those who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around things such as power and who has control. People rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays made for power and control. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else’s life, or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out just how to move forward in ways that can make us feel more in control. Just be careful about who’s toes you step on, or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things, and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.

Do the work the Cosmos is showing you, and you can transform parts of your life during Pluto’s Retrograde cycle.

Venus Moves into Aries! -“Love On Fire”


Venus enters Aries – “Love On Fire”


From April 20 – May 15


The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac which brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. 


This cycle brings love on rather quickly, as relationships, both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient.  


Even though we can be more direct than usual, some folks will be more reserved emotionally during this time. Feeling more unsure about themselves, especially if the love we feel is not been validated or expressed back. Love can be challenging, and if your confidence is already low then you can end up being more strategic or sneaky when it comes to matters of the heart. Under Venus in Aries we don’t look back, this is a time to move forward with anything concerning love or money. Each day is looked upon as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more so under this energy!


We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest of someone we have feelings for. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fresh breath of air to reignite their passions! If you are single than watch out for hooking up with someone new, quick and fast! Often these relationships fizzle out just as quickly. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you are wanting a new commitment around love or money. Pay attention to what could happen in the long-term with whomever you are interested in unless you are just looking for a hookup, as that can be much easier than usual. 


Love can be raw and sexy with the love planet Venus in hot and bothered Aries, as it is ruled by the planet Mars which is always about sex, aggression, and passion, as they can go hand and hand. So our sexual adventures can be quite interesting during this time. 


Edit With Venus in Aries energy, we say how we feel out loud and don’t like to sugar-coat things. “Saying it like it is” is more important at this time. We aren’t always mean necessarily in this energy, but we speak our minds and for some that can be difficult to take. Our desires are strongly expressed and we are more spontaneous, direct, and enthusiastic. And we prefer to seduce rather than be seduced, to chase than to be chased or hunted. We want to be in charge and in control, so we say what goes in our relationships now, and can have debates or even arguments over who has the upper hand in a relationship, but this also can come out in business affairs around money as well, as we can be a bit overbearing if not careful. 


Have fun under this influence, enjoy some alone time with the object of your affection,

~Ruby 

Sun in Taurus


This is for All Zodiac Signs!

The Sun is in the sign of Taurus from April 19 – May 20


Happy Birthday to all my Bulls! But now understand when the Sun is in any Zodiac Sign, it actually affects all of us no matter what are Sun Sign maybe.


The Sun in Taurus is a time when we feel more sensual, receptive and determined. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable which definitely overall can be a great help with so many other Cosmic connections happening during this time speeding things way up. This helps us take a deeper look at the events unfolding around us, so we can look at any complicated situation with some good old-fashioned common sense. This sign teaches all of us how to defend ourselves and resist things, but also how to love in a deeper, sensual, and more intimate way, and appreciate the physical world and all its beauty. 


This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up a place to zen out and get all comfy and cozy for the next month to make sure you have somewhere safe to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. This cycle shows us what stability and substance look like. We seem to be drawn to more practical matters now, so there’s not as much risk-taking happening usual in this energy. (However, mental Mercury is in the sign of Aries which does tend to give us some get up and go even under this energy.) With the Sun in Taurus, we have an opportunity to really value things in the material world and on a spiritual level both. 


As the Sun moves through this sign, we get to see what it is to manifest our world here in this physical reality, as the seeds we have planted take root. Our determination and need for security can become quite strong. Taurus energy is about loyalty, being comfortable, using what’s been tried and true in the past, and sticking to what’s familiar. We value those who have stayed by our side in good and bad times and will honor them more so during this time.


We see the beauty in life and are more focused on what pleases the senses, as they are aroused and highly activated, so we have more appreciation for things like food, music, sex, entertainment, and just anything that feels pleasurable. Because we’re more receptive in this way we should make the time to stop and “smell the roses”, rather than be in a hurry and pass things by. Enjoy all the beautiful things life has to offer and learn to find something beautiful about your life and yourself while the Sun is in Taurus. 


The shadow side of Taurus energy is we can be more possessive, especially with our children and partners, and we can act extremely stubborn and bullheaded. We must learn how to get out of our own way long enough at times and be willing to hear others ideas and opinions. 


While the Sun is in Taurus we should be making plans and setting goals that will be built to last. Put away some money for a rainy day and for your future endeavors. This isn’t a good time to make some kind of life-altering decision, however. Just plan for now, and maybe give it until the end of May to make your next big move.

Full Moon in Libra

Full Moon in Libra: April 19, 2019

by Ruby



The Full Moon energy is starting to come together Wednesday the 17th, but won’t completely be FULL until Friday Morning here in the States.

The energy this Full Moon is pushing out is quite strong, so you might feel like taking some sort of action now. You can feel the Full Moon usually about 3 days prior to it being totally FULL. Some of you may feel more tired or run down than usual during this build-up time, especially with Jupiter in Retrograde (backward) right now, so this can be especially strong. Other folks will feel more excitable and anxious during this time, which can lead to feeling more irritated. As the Full Moon swells slowly this week, we can be extremely tuned into our intuition, and since this particular, Full Moon is in the Zodiac Sign of Libra it produces some super-psychic energy! It’s a good time to get Psychic or Astrology Readings or have Energy work done or have some social Full Moon fun, like throwing a little get-together or practicing Full Moon rituals.


The Full Moon on Friday, April 19, 2019, at 29° Libra is opposite the planet of shocks and surprises Uranus.

This means there is a stronger need for change, excitement, and freedom, which can have you feeling more restless and impulsive. Expect the Unexpected during this Full Moon, as there will be unexpected events and strange offbeat behaviors acted out, even more so than usual during a Full Moon. With this Full Moon occurring in the Sign of Libra there can be tensions in our close personal relationships or partnerships, which can bring up emotional issues that we must deal with. There can be a need for emotional support at this is a time, so we should come from the heart and be more compassionate with others. 


The Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Aries forms an opposition to the Libra Moon.

This is on a relationship axis between Aries and Libra energies, (not your Sun Signs.) Aries represents “self” and Libra is about “others.” Aries helps us to be more self-assertive while Libra is about compromise. The energy of the Libra Moon is about being aware of a need for relationships in our human existence, and how to maintain them through balance, compromise, and negotiations. The energy of the Aries Sun is about taking care of one’s self, leading, and personal courage or bravery. The Full Moon illuminates the need to balance taking care of our relationships or our significant other, and meeting our personal needs and desires as well. It is a balance between independence and dependence.

This Full Moon occurs in the final “critical” degree of the Sign of Libra. This is the second Full Moon in Libra in the last few months, the last one occurring in the first degree back on March 20. Which means whatever got starting at the end of March in your relationships or around your personal freedom is at its last lesson now, so something will either end or be completed now. The Sun is heading into an alignment with Uranus in Taurus as well, this brings about revelations around our own personal independence, and the need for other folks to be in our lives and our partnerships. There will be finalities and endings with this Full Moon.


How do you navigate the energy during a Full Moon?

It can make such a huge difference and set the stage for this to be a good or bad experience.

– How you react or don’t is important during a Full Moon Cycle, learn how to NOT overreact during this time. Instead, work on being patient and see how things play out. Getting upset or jumping to conclusions is easier since you can be so overly emotional during this time. But you will just regret it later, as there are a lot of planets right now slowing down to go Retrograde like Jupiter already, and Saturn and Pluto are in their Shadow periods right before their Retrograde cycles. So things can get a little weird if you go blowing things out of proportion.

– Open your mind and be flexible, and look at all your options rather than feeling stuck, and be willing to change something so your circumstances can also shift into something better or more positive. 

– Get rest and plenty of sleep! Work on raising your energetic vibration by doing something that makes you feel good in your soul.  Make sure to be around good friends and company. Eat right and healthy. Make sure to get regular exercise, but also take some time to relax and maybe listen to some music that makes you feel good. All of these things will help you feel much better and help raise your vibrational energy.

– Make peace with yourself, your past, and let go of any situations that aren’t helping you. Maybe write out some Full Moon Intentions around what you are done with and what you would like to Let Go and Release! 


Full Moon April 2019 Times and Dates

  • Los Angeles – 19 April, 4:12 am PST
  • New York – 19 April, 7:12 am EDT
  • Chicago – 19 April, 6:12 am CDT

Above are the exact times when the Full Moon comes together, so it’s time to “Set Intentions”, or make out those Wish Lists! It’s especially a good time to work at letting go of something. But you can start by doing some sort of Full Moon ritual or magic when the Moon shifts into Libra Wednesday morning, so before the Moon is totally Full, which personally is a much better time to manifest! Just never do any kind of energy work during the VOID MOON cycle, it just doesn’t work out the same, as the Moon is shifting from one Zodiac Sign to another. This is a valuable time to release something or someone in your life, it could be a person, a place, or situation, or even an old behavior or a belief.

Focus your energy on bringing something new into your life, while also maintaining the relationships you already have. Remember that Full Moons are potent times for releasing work and endings. Full Moons reveal either internally or externally something important, the truth comes out or is illuminated in some way! With the Full Moon in the sign of Libra balance is key. But no matter what your Zodiac Sign, there’s a strong chance you might feel pulled on or pushed too far, so take a step back from time to time and take care of yourself and each other.

Have a Happy and Safe Full Moon,

Mercury in Aries


Mercury Enters Aries
April 17 – May 6, 2019

For All Zodiac Signs:

The planet of communication and perception Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries and bring amazing new insights and flashes of genius during its cycle.

In Aries, mental Mercury is fast and sharp, as we tend to think quickly and make more impulsive decisions than usual. This influence helps us take our plans and projects and move them into new directions. Just make sure this takes you down the right path towards your life’s purpose in some way, instead of some detour you didn’t expect to take because you can make snap judgments and take impulsive actions that can have you headed down the wrong path fast. We must remind ourselves from time to time to slow down and center ourselves to avoid mistakes or accidents.

With Mercury in Aries, we take spontaneous actions, and our focus can be much more self-centered. This is the sign that helps us learn about ourselves. So we are less concerned with objective viewpoints and explanations, and more concerned with reaching decisions quickly! Our thoughts and ideas are pioneering, but we can also be impatient when trying to solve problems.

We tend to speak more spontaneously and directly, so we can come off more lively, loud, assertive, and enthusiastic when expressing ourselves and in confrontations. We are just more bold and brave when communicating.

Take this time when Mercury is in the sign of Aries to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging because this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that the sign of Aries is named after the God of War. It’s not a good time to be debating or arguing, or you can get caught up in drama and those great new ideas or projects won’t get a chance to move forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this powerful cosmic influence.

Say what you mean, and mean what you say!

NEW MOON IN ARIES-TRAILBLAZING

FRIDAY, April 5th, 2019

“HAPPY NEW MOON DAY!”

The NEW MOON is in the sign of ARIES this April of 19, and it brings in fresh and new energy. This particular trailblazing NEW MOON is when the Sun in ARIES and the MOON in ARIES both make a rather harmonious connection. ARIES energy is always about New Beginnings, and NEW MOON’S are about starting a NEW CYCLE in our life. So this fiery lunation is strong and potent! When we think of Spring time it’s about renewal and new Beginnings, and this is the perfect energy to line up right along with the start of the new season.


During this time we should be able to take the lead and move forward in our lives, and be the warrior like this ARIES energy and charge ahead! This is the time to take action, try something new and innovative, and go after what you want. Don’t be afraid and let your confidence take you where it needs to. ARIES energy can help you learn how to be assertive without being harmful. It’s a time to take charge of our lives and start something new and different. The lessons ARIES hands out is about staying young, and connecting to your inner child in some way, but it’s also trying to teach you how to be bold and learn more about your own personal courage. 


Now that mental MERCURY is freshly out of its Retrograde cycle, the energy of strength helps you to better understand yourself, so you can do some soul searching through journal-keeping, meditation, or exercise. You have an opportunity to start this cycle off on a good note and make the changes you’ve been patiently waiting to make while MERCURY was in RETROGRADE, it was a long one. 


This is a good time to set goals, plans, and commitments that are more realistic. “Go big and go hard” is a good ARIES Mantra, no matter how big or small you set your sights, you should start to notice things happening within a few weeks by the next FULL MOON. Later, you may get to reap the rewards from whatever new beginnings you begin. 


ARIES is the first sign of the ZODIAC, so this being a NEW MOON makes it especially strong with opportunity for New Beginnings. It is a time to actually act on impulse if you are careful of course, follow your gut instincts, your intuition, and take some risks. Aries is a sign that teaches us to take action and learn through our experiences. So get out there and have some sort of adventure! 


This is also a good cycle to learn more about how to keep things real, ARIES teaches all of us a valuable lesson around expressing ourselves in a more authentic way and without being false. This helps you to better rely on yourself and to be happy about doing so, so you can be put you on a path towards finding inner peace and ridding any anxiety you may be experiencing around being alone. Then you can be self-sufficient and not worry so much about blaming those who weren’t always there. 


“This is a time to break your normal everyday routines and have experiences that involve doing something new, this can help you feel more alive and worthy.”


However, this particular NEW MOON is forming a tense square to taskmaster SATURN, which means some paths towards our New Beginnings might be blocked. Some kind of plan or expectations you have may not startmoving as quickly as you thought they would.Hopefully, since we are in a unique time Astrologically with NO major planets or cosmic bodies in RETROGRADE, eventually theenergies will get moving after we deal withSATURN’S challenges. 


For All, you fellow ASTROLOGY freaks this NEW MOON phase occurs at 15 degrees and 17 mins of ARIES, which tends to affect folks born with their personal planets and points at 11 to 19 degrees of the Cardinal Signs of the ZODIAC (ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, and CAPRICORN.)
