The Sun shifts into the sign of transformation and mystery; Scorpio, “Scorpio Season” begins on Oct 23, 2022, and runs through Nov 21, 2022.
The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio’s energy drives us to explore the depths of our soul during Scorpio Season. 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 during this cycle.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation for all of us. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed as we learn about others’ betrayals. Anything superficial doesn’t work during this time because we want real true connections, and there’s a deeper need to know people on a genuine and authentic level.
Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence on the Scorpio energy can make you feel more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are generally more interested in getting to the bottom of things and uncovering what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown.
During Scorpio Season, we see the unseen, and the unknown becomes known with our uncanny inner psychic and intuitive abilities. Our instincts are so strong that even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual. We enjoy the odd, taboo, and different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring and simply unattractive.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. Now during Scorpio Season, we learn to accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human. To evolve truly, we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to create new beginnings.
This Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be secretive even though we’re passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. It’s a time of transformation and healing. But watch yourself! We can overshare a bit, as our thoughts and feelings need to be explored to understand ourselves better. So we can talk and talk and talk and talk! Yikes, it’s just often too much! Just make sure you’re not telling too much of your business and, know when to let other people express themselves, let go of that control.
The shadow side of this Scorpio energy brings about feelings of jealousy, paranoia, and obsessions. Watch out for cunning and manipulative people. Obsessions over certain issues or problems are strong, so we can dig deeper to learn and understand someone or something—but there can be an issue with not knowing when enough is enough or having the discipline to stop.
Scorpio energy is about survival and evolution, so it teaches us how to finish or end things in our lives. But often, we must endure things being broken down, and there’s destruction left, so we must rise from the ashes and start over! You may have fallen or feel like giving up, but you must push through. It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection.
Scorpio Season is for all Zodiac Signs; this energy helps us learn and evolve. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back as we start to rebuild after a wild and crazy year. It’s the best time to renew ourselves because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina.
Hopefully, by the time we get to the end of November and into Sagittarius season, we’ll have some plans in place. May the Scorpio Sun energy that’s highlighted show you the way and help you get through your life’s journey. Stay Safe & Well ~Ruby
Sunday, September 25 New Moon in Libra ♎ For All Zodiac Signs 🌟
The New Moon will occur at 2 degrees and 49 minutes of Libra. And the New Moon is tightly opposite Jupiter, so the New Moon spreads a social energy! It’s a time of changes in your relationships, both business and personal. You may want to be out and about, as it’s a nice time to meet people of all backgrounds and cultures.
The New Moon in Libra kicks off a good cycle as the Equinox just occurred on the 22, kicking off Libra Season! This means the Sun is also now in Libra. So the New Moon is when the Sun & Moon hang out, and with them both being in Libra, you should be working on balancing.
The New Moon peaks at 5:54 pm EST, 4:54 pm CST, so it’s a good time to Set Intentions with the New Moon energy. Simply get into a Zen state of mind and write out your desires, wishes, and dreams. What goals do you want to achieve? What new energy would you like to enter your life?
It’s a good time to work on personal goals that represent the positive energies of the sign of the scales, Libra. We have an opportunity to build our negotiating skills without compromising your needs or principles and without giving in too much. It’s an important time to work on re-balancing your relationships and recognizing your partner as part of a team rather than an opponent.
Under this potent Libra energy, you have an opportunity to make important changes in your life. It helps you learn to make peace with others and incorporate harmony in your world, establish a sense of order and balance in your life, and recognize the value of partnerships. It’s a great time to work on all the above goals.
This Libra energy enhances your psychic abilities and helps bring together opposites. Peace and harmony are important now, but there’s a balancing act along the way that will take some focus, time, and effort, even if that means there will be some chaos first before you can create order.
If you’re single, you may meet a soulmate partner that could lead to a more serious relationship, but have the first date after October 2, when Mercury Retrograde is over. Don’t even try to start a new relationship during Mercury’s Retrograde cycle because something always goes wrong. However, it’s a good time to reunite with lovers from the past. But that doesn’t mean you are meant to be back together. Often it’s just a time to forgive.
Don’t push too far over the next week, and over-extend yourself for others. You could end up resentful if you think your efforts have gone unnoticed.
This New Moon brings fresh and creative energy into your lives and, more specifically, into your relationships. You can have a strong desire to balance your close personal relationships.
Because this lunation opposes Jupiter, we must watch for exaggerated behavior and excess. But we deserve a fresh start, so don’t try to reach too high or too far. It won’t help you achieve your goals any faster right now.
Also, a Mars-Saturn Trine connection can help you see how taking your time and staying grounded can be effective.
March 6 – theCosmic Lovers, Venus, and Mars have been stealing the show for quite a while now, and today both planets shift into the sign of inquisitive Aquarius shortly after they align.
On Sunday and Monday, March 6-7, both Venus and Mars form a somewhat tense connection to hopeful Jupiter, which helps us be more optimistic but a bit competitive. This exciting aspect is stimulating and invigorating. Timing can be an issue, and we may overestimate our abilities, thinking we’re capable of doing more. It’s best to wait it out and not react to sudden urges since that may not get you anywhere right this minute.
The Venus-Mars alignment is an intense, creative, and dynamic energy. And with Venus and Mars both entering Aquarius, we can feel strong about something fresh and new beginning. But this influence can be overstimulating, and we can end up feeling nervous or anxiety-ridden. Now is the time to find ways to offset this energy and keep calm if needed.
Venus will stay in Aquarius until April 5. As it moves us forward, we value our freedom and independence more than ever, especially in our social relationships! We can enjoy what’s considered unconventional, experimental, or non-traditional in our relationships and partnerships.
Pleasurable things can be strongly affected, for example, music, entertainment, food, retail therapy, and sexual activities. New and different is in, and our pursuits can be especially intriguing. Our tastes, interests, and values can be much different than usual during this cycle. We’re willing to go outside our comfort zone and do things differently.
All of this Aquarian energy allows us to be more open, which leads to expressing our feelings freely. But we must treat people fairly, unselfishly, impartially, and humanely! It will be interesting to see how these influences play out in the world right now. Remember, Aquarius energy helps us detach from our emotions long enough to take care of business, and it demands that we find ways to be freed from oppressive situations.
Mars will be in Aquarius until April 14,this is also a very dynamic influence, but it also can be erratic and unpredictable at times. Our focus is more on the team, as we grow less concerned about gaining personal power or control. As we try to achieve our goals, we can have some bumps on our path, as we’re way too eager and may have to learn through our experiences.
We may feel very passionate and have some anger issues with Mars in Aquarius. We’re attracted to using unconventional methods. We use our minds and intellect from a detached perspective to strategize and solve problems. And we can be fiercely strong-willed as we rally behind beliefs and causes in our actions. Therefore, activists and their organizations will be in full swing during this time, especially with the war in Ukraine and in situations that are way less volatile.
A lot of time and energy is spent thinking and mulling over ideas about the actions we should be taking instead of actually doing something. However, we are crusaders for our causes, ideas, and opinions. These influences bring out our inner warrior and bravery to help those wronged.
A special astrological event between the Cosmic Lovers, (Venus and Mars) occurs during the magical time of Love on Valentine’s Day. But we’re feeling this energy now!
In my personal opinion, celebrating Love is a positive thing all around! Coming from the heart is important in all that we do, and we need to be reminded, especially now, as the world is scary! A special day to show our love and appreciation for each other is what Valentine’s Day is all about, no matter if it’s a lover, friend, or family member.
Venus & Mars are the planets of desire and love, and they are growing closer together for an extended amount of time in a Cosmic embrace that runs through March 15! It’s a time of the Yin and Yang, love and passion, and the merging of the divine masculine and feminine energies, which is in all of our Astrology Birth Charts.
The good news is this alignment brings in the actual energies for Love, passion, romance, and creativity. So if someone gives you a gift for Valentine’s Day, they probably really do care. There’s no faking it under this influence, and it’s an emotional time as these planets inch closer to connecting with soulful Pluto at the end of February, bringing forth the truth in all matters of Love and soul connections.
This special Cosmic alignment can light up some part of your life, so many of you will experience something to do with love or relationships during this time. All the Zodiac Signs will be touched in some way by this influence since its lasts for so long.
It’s an excellent time for new beginnings in relationships of all kinds, so romantic relationships, partnerships, and friendships are formed. And since Venus often rules over money, it can be a new start for all you business owners and entrepreneurs. This meeting brings in the right energy for creativity and drive to create something long-term.
It’s a special time for true soul connections to be made. However, we need to remember that Venus and Mars are meeting up with powerful and honest Pluto at the end of February, serving as a reminder that it can be lonely being on your own. Still, it can be just as hard to be married or in a long-term relationship, and that might need to be fixed or let go! Depending on your current situation, you can find happiness and empowerment either way. Two souls that merge under these energies can have quite a powerful experience. As we move through February, the intensity of these meetings will increase to a peak during the last weekend of the month.
Also, the planet Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius on February 14th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. All matters relating to how we process information, like communicating, learning, and traveling, are affected. Our mundane worlds shift, as our thinking turns towards creating a future that aligns with our plans and goals. Even though we like to keep these things practical, we tend to go into a much richer fantasy world regarding relationships and matters of the heart. Just make sure you keep things real! As the Cosmic Lovers move closer to their Conjunction with Pluto at the end of February, being honest about your lovers or partners and your expectations with them is extremely important!
Since this blog is about love and relationships, ask yourself what you want in your relationships, love life, and friendships next?
If you are a Leo, Virgo, and Cancer Rising or Ascendant (NOT SUN SIGNS), this alignment goes through your romantic zone in your Birth Charts. And it can run even deeper for many with it transiting your soul, sex, and intimacy zones which really can heat things up! Enjoy!
February of 2022 starts off a bit confusing, but there will be NO planets in Retrograde after the 3rd since Mercury is direct! Planets appear to change direction as they orbit the Sun all the time, and it’s actually more common than not, so it’s rare to have months without any Retrograde planets. This “No Retrograde” zone lasts until the end of April, when Pluto heads into its Retrograde cycle on April 29th.
With no planets Retrograde, it will feel like time speeds up and goes by faster. The past doesn’t matter so much or take up our time, so it’s important to be certain about your next move. This period of time can help make things move quickly and promotes growth. So it’s important to make your intentions known and clear with the Universe! We’ll be much more effective and productive if we stay focused, so take advantage of this time, go after what you want, and make your plans and goals come alive.
This month starts the Year of the (Water) Tiger in Lunar Astrology, 2022! It runs through January 21st, 2023. After two intense years ruled by the sharp Metal element, we’re move into a flowing two-year Water cycle on February 1st. The Tiger is majestic and protecting, inspiring us to go after the Gold in our life. It’s a very important Sign in Lunar Astrology as it represents being wealthy, but also symbolizes action, strength, and power! Images of the Tiger, especially the White Tiger, are given to people to have the strength to deal with tough times.
Mercury has moved direct! But unfortunately, it’s connected to powerful Pluto this first week of February, which creates another strong aspect. You can say things you don’t mean as the words can just fly out of your mouth, which can get you in trouble! Watch what you post on social media, folks, and be mindful about what you’re writing and talking about, as you can make people upset or even angry and cause controversy. No matter how communicated, our words hold more power than usual under these influences, so take responsibility for what you communicate.
The Sun conjuncts Saturn, which can put restrictions on everyone, and you may feel blocked or limited. Luckily this doesn’t last long. It is a good day to start new projects or tasks, but remember Mercury has just gone direct, which means starting anything brand new can go wonky! So it’s best to work on clearing space and clutter and organizing. If you can focus and not get distracted, you can accomplish quite a bit.
Today’s a time to live in the moment, stay in the present. Don’t focus on future plans and goals on this day. Let your worries go, and just be thankful for what you already have. The simple pleasures in life are what have the most value. So enjoy what you value and love.
You might have some annoying mistakes happen today, but don’t get upset over it. If someone makes you upset or angry, try not to lash out or retaliate. It’s all too easy to burn bridges and not be able to mend them later.
Today you may feel sort of stuck and like things aren’t moving forward. This influence might feel like things are actually moving in slow motion. It’s OK. Take things slowly, and know you can’t rush things on this day. And it’s best to keep your schedule light and at a much slower pace.
Mars trines Uranus. You might start noticing this feel-good energy a few days ahead of the 8th. It will help you get through work and build something in your life. There will be clear messages coming in from the Universe, so look for A-ha moments and epiphanies, and take notes! It’s a good time to enjoy the company of your loved ones.
On this day of Love, mental Mercury goes into a different headspace as it shifts back into the sign of Aquarius, but it’s no longer Retrograde! With Mercury in Aquarius (until March 9th), all matters of information, processing, communication, short travel, and learning can take us away from the mundane into different Uranus-ruled (Uranus rules Aquarius) realms. But our thinking is also practical, and we take our responsibilities more seriously due to Saturn co-ruling Aquarius energy. So this cycle continues to extend new and original ideas and things from the last New Moon. We can be emotionally detached on this day, but we still enjoy honoring traditions.
A Leo Full Moon occurs, so mark this day as a good time for some retail therapy. Some seriously good deals and sales can happen, and gambling can go well. But DON’T spend a bunch of money because you read this, please! The earlier in the day you do these things, the better. Enjoy!
The Sun enters Pisces on February 18, starting Pisces season. Happy Birthday to all the brilliant fishes out there! Jupiter and Neptune are already in Pisces, and there will be a New Moon in Pisces on March 2nd. This Stellium of planets in Pisces will bring a creative burst into our lives where our imagination and sense of spirituality are strong! The energies will be much more relaxed and expansive until the Sun shifts around March 21st into Aries, and Spring begins.
The last week of the month brings in the more harmonious energies that are more supportive, especially in our relationships. And the Cosmic lover’s Mars and Venus harmonize with Neptune turning our attention to our spirit and who we love most, which helps lessen our ego’s reactions. Mercury harmonizes with Healer Chiron to help us understand and heal any toxic or negativity in our lives.
Rubys Astro Readings Mars in Capricorn January 24 – March 6, 2022
Mars, the planet that rules over our aggression, anger, passions, and motivation, has shifted into practical Capricorn after spending nearly six weeks in the sign of Aquarius.
This new energy cycle gives us an intimate personal look at expressing our anger and rage. We have an opportunity to learn how to deal with our aggression. And what sets off our triggers and feeds our passions. What really motivates or drives you?
Capricorn is an earth sign, so we strive to keep our emotions more in check because we want solid, secure, and stable energies at all times. At least we’re not fantasizing about our feelings and dealing with reality, which is helpful, while the Sun is in Aquarius, which is more idealistic energy. It can help us stay more grounded.
The planet Mercury, still in Retrograde, has unfinished business as it moves through the sign of the mystical sea-goat, Capricorn, and now Mars; we have many Capricorn-themed lessons and challenges to take on. You might go back to previous jobs, work, projects, or old followed traditions in your life. It’s a time to redo, revisit, or go over something again.
With Mars in Capricorn, our energy is best used when channeling it into something more professional or related to business. We tend to be more conventional and conservative. We enjoy seeing more practical results for now, so a job well done gives us a strong sense of accomplishment.
Mars is the planet of action, so its influence helps us take action and go after what we want, even if we have to fight for it! With Mars in earthy Capricorn, we’re better are being more strategic than impulsive. So we are more tenacious and willing to work hard to achieve what we truly desire. We are more assertive, practical, rational, disciplined, self-controlled, and efficient. We take our responsibilities more seriously, and with Mars in Capricorn, we’ll take action to take care of business.
The good news with Mars in Capricorn is that we tend to consider our future consequences before making any major decisions. We are more faithful, reliable, and committed. So please take advantage of the laser-like focus and discipline we carry to finish important projects. This energy helps us level up! It’s time to look at your long-term goals and the big picture. So you can work on strategies to reach them.
Be mindful that we can come off as selfish, cold, calculating, and materialistic during this cycle and end up showing total disregard for other people’s feelings. So it’s important to pay attention to how you are reacting to others if you don’t want to come off the wrong way.
So, for now, it’s better to focus on your future goals and plan out where you want to go. It will be much easier to achieve your goals, desires, and dreams and bring them to life with Mars in Capricorn because this is manifesting energy!
And Mercury will be out of Retrograde by February 2, so you can gain some serious momentum by the end of this cycle and get much accomplished. Start planning your actions now. It’s not that far away.
2022 will be an interesting year indeed, it’s a year of healing on an Astrological level. There are still challenges to deal with, like the Pandemic, and let’s face it, and not everything will be sunshine and rainbows. However, 2022 is a whimsical year, and some folks will finally see their dreams come true!
The other part of 2022 can bring shocks and unexpected surprises. These influences are meant to help us connect to our soul path, which gives us a deeper sense of meaning and purpose. Destiny takes a hand as this New Year shows us what we are meant to be doing in this life. Take time for deep personal self-reflection, by taking part in activities that connect you to your spirit, like meditation, creative work, journaling, exercise, energy work, and anything that helps you tap into your higher-self. It’s a year to seriously go Zen, folks!
If we break down the more important planetary connections of 2022, we must look back to our past to learn and heal and then move forward into the future.
2020 was ruled by the Saturn/Pluto Conjunction in the sign of sturdy Capricorn. 2021 was a time when the energies constantly pushed and pulled on us under the long-term Saturn/Uranus Square connection. These influences have been strong and challenging, and extremely difficult to handle at times, and we all know how both years turned out!
So finally, some good news! 2022 is not like the last few years, not at all! Even with the Saturn/Uranus Square still running in the backdrop, the worst of its influence is officially over! The other two major aspects in 2022 are actually very positive: Jupiter Conjunct Neptune in Pisces, and the North Node (destiny points of the Moon) Conjuncting Uranus in the sign of Taurus.
Jupiter Conjunct Neptune is an absolutely beautiful aspect. Jupiter is the great benefic planet of our Zodiac, and when it’s in spiritual Pisces, it’s a stronger positive influence in our lives. Neptune (Pisces ruling planet) is also considered to be spiritual, and it’s at home in the sign of Pisces. This influence can make real dreams come true! All of this may sound a little cliche, but Jupiter is the planet of luck, hope, and abundance, and Neptune is the planet of higher spirituality and dreams. So 2022 will have a theme of healing on a deep spiritual level, so there will be more positive Cosmic energies going around spreading joy and abundance all around.
Since Neptune is involved, I have to mention that escapism can be an issue, so If anything, you might feel like escaping your current reality more than ever in 2022! This energy can lead to spiritual retreat and denial, and there can be issues with drug abuse and alcoholism, so anything that helps us escape can be done in excess, leading to scarier problems. Just remember throughout 2022 it’s ok to have somw fun, but we have to deal with reality from time to time as well, especially during the Pandemic. This influence is meant to teach us to go within ourselves and find spiritual truth and healing, as this AWAKENING can help us believe in how truly magical our lives can be!
Uranus Conjunct the North Node is the other important aspect of 2022. The North Node is an Astrological point of the Moon, and it rules over our destiny and soul’s journey, along with the South Node. Uranus is the planet that brings random flashes of genius and insight, as it passes info from a higher source and our higher self. It is the planet of freedom and independence! So we can be liberated through our spiritual practices. Make sure to do so with an open mind, or you might not hear or understand the messages the Universe is trying to convey. You really don’t want to miss these messages.
The Uranus/North Node influence will abruptly awaken us, often with random A-ha moments and epiphanies. This serendipitous energy is about our true soul purpose and what we are meant to be doing with our lives. Often this lesson is about turning our pain into purpose. Therefore, this energy is not for the faint of heart. If you’ve been living in an illusion created by you or someone else, this influence can be disturbing because it’s meant to wake you out of your slumber, so there can be random events that are surprising or even shocking to jolt you out of the illusion.
However, if you’re confident about your purpose in this life and have struggled with getting on the right path towards your goals, this influence might get you on track. 2022 is a year to chase dreams as the Universe supports those who are headed in the right direction, and there shouldn’t be as many roadblocks along the way.
We can feel pulled in two different directions under these two very different Cosmic influences, and our lives can be turned upside down at times by rather surprising events. There can be unexpected changes and opportunities. And we may have to move fast to grab the good stuff, so pay attention, or you can be caught off guard and miss something important. Don’t hesitate if an offer suddenly pops up. If you’re already a planner, get ready to make changes to adapt to your situation. Follow your gut instincts and let your intuition guide you.
Here’s a list of the most potent Astrological events of the year:
Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Pisces – March-May 2022, exact on April 12, 2021
Jupiter in Aries starts May 11, 2022, runs until October 28, 2022, when Jupiter moves back into Pisces, and then Jupiter enters Aries on December 20, 2022.
The Lunar Nodes shift – as the North Node in Taurus and the South Node in Scorpio – move into Taurus and Scorpio on January 18, 2020, and stay there until July 17, 2022.
North Node conjunct Uranus – May – September 2022, exact on July 26, 2022
Saturn square Uranus – while it’s not an exact conjunction, Saturn and Uranus are in a tight connection, especially from August to November.
Extra Info The New Moon in Pisces on March 2, 2022, is a special time as both Pisces rulers, Neptune and Jupiter, meet up. At the same time, Mars, Venus, and Pluto align in Capricorn and connect to this New Moon. Then Mercury and Saturn align in Aquarius, again connecting to the New Moon! So all the planets, practically except for Uranus, are involved in a Conjunction. It’s quite rare and will bring a lot of energy that helps us move forward. New Moons always bring New Beginnings, and these influences will boost these energies and can have a powerful effect on all of our lives.
Thank you to all my followers and clients for your likes and constant feedback over this last year. I’m so grateful to all of you. May you have a healthy, wealthy, beautiful, and abundant year.
December 2021 Astro Forecast For All Zodiac Signs 🌟
🌟The Cosmos kicks off December 2021 with a New Moon/Solar Eclipse on December 4. This energy starts to build up on Dec 1, and it can be intense feeling starting now!
A Solar Eclipse occurs at the time of the New Moon, which brings new beginnings, so this cycle often brings some lucky energies, which might have already started for some. And its influence runs through January of 2022.
🌟 Mark December 15 on your calendar as one of the most intense days of the month. For the next few weeks, we should take it easy and practice some self-care. Eclipse Season is always very hard on people.
🌟 Attention: if you are a sensitive type, Healer, Psychic, or Empath, you will probably feel this Eclipse energy even more, so make sure to work ahead to keep your energy fields protected.
The Solar Eclipse is potent, especially with the other cosmic transits occurring at the same time. It can make you feel like things are out of your control or even chaotic. Finding definite answers to questions may prove difficult, and making important decisions can be confusing, especially with foggy Neptune casting its veil over us as it goes out of its Retrograde phase and back to its normal cycle. Allow life to flow and try not to put up a fight or work against these energies, as it will only backfire on you!
On a side note, the days leading to New Year’s Eve can be a time to be extra careful. It’s best to stick to close family and friends and celebrate. It is not a good night for a large party.
December seems to be a time for subtle changes, and there may even be an event that changes the way we see the world over the next few months! This month will bring some serious revelations, both big and small.
🌟 December Important Dates
🌟 December 1 – Neptune Stations or stops to go direct from its Retrograde phase. With Neptune finally moving forward again since last June, secrets tend to be revealed. And for the next week or so, things can seem extra confusing, but we’ll start to feel inspired once again. As our inner muse randomly shows back up.
🌟 December 18 – the Full Moon in Gemini is opposing the Galactic Center at 27 degrees Sagittarius. This energy can be strange or unusual, so make sure and remember that things may not go as planned—more info to follow.
🌟 December 18 – Venus goes Retrograde (backward) while in the sign of Capricorn through the end of January. If you’re reading this at the beginning of December, you could already be dealing with the side effects, as Venus has entered its Retrograde shadow period.
This energy causes tensions in intimate relationships and with lovers. Still, it can affect your professional and personal relationships, both. It’s a time to let go of the things that aren’t of value to you anymore. It can be a difficult time financially, or we can see issues around what we value. Also, old lovers often come back around, and some may even want to get back together. Rarely do lovers who reunite during the Venus Retrograde cycle stay together after it’s over.
🌟 December 21, 2021 The Winter Solstice occurs, and the days start to grow longer. A time of endings that sets us up for new beginnings in Spring. It’s a very powerful day to Set Intentions with the Universe, so do some energy work or rituals like you would with a New or Full Moon. Take the time to write down your plans, goals, and wishes for the next three months and what you want to manifest in your life.
🌟Extra Astro Notes Starting in mid-December, we can feel the energies shift as the Karmic North and South Node points of Destiny shift into the sign of Taurus and Scorpio. These influences are big and can change how we handle what we value and our finances on a very large scale.
The North Nodes shifts into Taurus, and over the next year and a half, this energy will affect our financial affairs as it goes through a major overhaul. There’s a stronger desire to change jobs or start up some sort of side hustle to keep things secure for many of you. Other people will feel strongly about getting married or making long-term commitments in relationships. We want to create something stable and comfortable in our lives. Those who are unhappy with their work or relationships may finally have had enough and decide to cut their losses and walk away from their current situations. This influence officially starts on January 22 and runs through July 2023
The Karmic North Node point in Astrology while in Taurus affects what we value. This shift can bring conflict, worry, and confusion regarding our security. The good news is over the next year, this influence can help us make important much-needed changes. Even if we don’t like these changes, the outcome is usually more positive.
🌟And then the South Node Destiny Point shifts into Scorpio. This energy pushes us to release something that’s been holding us back, like obligations or something burdening. We must let go of something that no longer serves our lives or blocks us from following our true soul journey. Some of you will end something; it could be a job or relationship; whatever happens, it’s time to evolve and grow. This influence brings big transformations as some things must end, but not all endings are bad. Even though it may be difficult at the time, these changes are for our highest good.
🌟Lastly, the United States enters its Shadow phase of its Pluto Return. Pluto is the planet that shakes things down and often destroys foundations so that we can rebuild and transform them.
Pluto was Conjunct the Moon on its birthday, July 4, 1776. As Pluto moves closer to the Anaetic degree of Capricorn or the “Karmic Degree,” our country will see some major changes. Our nation’s Pluto Return will bring both rewards and difficulties. This energy runs from 2022-2024.
This energy, in the end, is for our own good and creates a better way of life and ways of living. But if we want to reach that point, this country needs to deal with its demons first! As we’ve already been experiencing. Pluto brings our dark history back around to heal. If you can imagine, these strong energies are returning to their exact point for the first time since July 4, 1776! So the United States Pluto Return energy has already started and will peak within months. Things are getting real!
The Cosmos is switching things up quick and fast at the end of 2021, making 2022 feel much different.
On December 28, our luck changes when Jupiter, the planet of abundance, blessings, knowledge, and good fortune, shifts into the sign of spiritual healing Pisces. Jupiter does well in the energy of Pisces, but rules over the sign of Sagittarius.
Jupiter will transit the sign of the fish, Pisces, until May 10, 2022. And then at the end of October of 2022 through the end of December 2022, due to its Retrograde phase. This gives us plenty of opportunities to accomplish things we might have been otherwise stuck on for quite a long time.
Jupiter Retrograde in 2022 can bring many auspicious or inauspicious results in your life. There’s a lot of confidence going around that can help us make a name for ourselves if we work hard at what we do, which strengthens our inner power. You can make the impossible possible with Jupiter Retrograde!
Jupiter spends many months in the sign of Pisces. The last time Jupiter transited Pisces was from January to June 2010 and September 2010 to January 2011. Whatever we started during this period is now enjoying a Jupiter return, so it’s going through a rebirth of some sort and has the opportunity to expand, increase. Still, it may require some adjustments to grow further.
Often Pisces energy is about healing and self-care. Since Jupiter is the planet of expansion and knowledge, we can see many of you start new health regimens and get yourself on the right path towards healing, or at the least, you can start to figure out how to handle your health, mental, and emotional issues. But like anything, you have to work with this energy to make it work for you, and some folks will be just plain lucky during the Jupiter in Pisces cycle.
We also can be rather vulnerable and sensitive under the sign of Pisces, so we may need to watch for scams more so than usual and for anything that can make us feel victimized or susceptible to being taken advantage of. If something seems to good to be true, that’s because it probably is!
Jupiter cruises through each sign of the Zodiac every 12 years and makes a complete circle of the Zodiac Wheel. This December, Jupiter goes through the last sign in the Zodiac when it returns to the sign of Pisces. And then it will start a new 12-year cycle at the end of 2022 when Jupiter shifts into the sign of Aries.
Jupiter expands the house of Pisces started at the end of December in your Astrology Birth Chart and amplifies the energies of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, and Sagittarius. So if you know your Astrology, you can see what parts of your life this cycle will touch and expand, just by looking to where those signs are at in your Birth Chart.
Jupiter ends its twelve-year cycle through the Zodiac signs, while in the last sign of Pisces, which starts at the end of December 2022. We have the opportunity to meet some success because this influence sets new foundations to help build our future, but again only if you’re willing to co-create with the Universe.
This Jupiter shift is pretty big considering we all get a chance to see some new opportunities come our way. Some people will find new jobs or see a change to their career path, and many of you will see marriage or a very strong comment in relationships. But careful, because we need our freedom at the same time. It’s all about balance. While others will see a current business advance, and of course, as always with Jupiter, some will see an increase in money and luck! It just depends on what part of your Astrology Birth Chart Jupiter is currently transiting to know what part of your life this new luck will develop in.
We very much need the freedom of our beliefs and to believe whatever we want while Jupiter is moving through Pisces.
FYI- Hopefully, as we get closer to this new Jupiter influence, I can start some Jupiter transit reports for 2022! I will let you know once I’m ready due to the Holiday season. But it won’t be until later in the month.
Knowing what part of your life to push your luck in can be helpful, as working with Jupiter can help you get things done in your life! Jupiter bestows its gifts and blessings upon us in a new way, starting at the end of December 2021. And with Jupiter, knowledge is power. So find ways to learn and advance your education in any way you can during this cycle, especially if it’s something to do with spiritual healing or Metaphysical.

Welcome to Sagittarius Season. Over the last month, we’ve been navigating through our daily routines while feeling our emotions more deeply than usual, with the Scorpio Stellium (3 or more planets in the same sign) with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars all in the shadowy sign of Scorpio. We’ve been observing, researching, and secretly dealing with our emotional baggage.
But the November Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Taurus just last week exposed our vulnerabilities, and it has tested our patience, as it brought many of our insecurities to light. This energy continues to encourage us to grow and evolve, even if we do it kicking and screaming.
These last few weeks have been intense, but you’ll notice a shift starting November 21 – 22, when the Sun shifts from the deeper waters of Scorpio into the lighter energy of Sagittarius.
Over the next month, we come out of the shadows and into the light a little bit at a time. This cycle pushes us to seek adventures as we feel freer. It also restores our hope and often faith in ourselves and others. It’s a time when we can visualize our possibilities, and can work on expanding our lives.
During Sagittarius Season, we tend to take on a more carefree attitude and rid ourselves of what holds us down. If you remain attached to emotional, mental, physical, or material burdens, it’s going to drag you down, so let go of all that junk during this transit, or you’ll get frustrated and angry. It’s a time to free yourself of problems and live in the present moment. That’s the motto during Sagittarius Season.
Sagittarius’s lessons for all of us are about the future, making things simple and honest, and not taking our emotions out on others. If you lose your cool, you could miss out. Staying positive can help you activate this larger-than-life energy.
The Sagittarius energy tends to make us feel more curious, bold, and daring enough to wander through unfamiliar territory and go after what we want. Feeling free of our fears helps us escape illusions that the Sun in Scorpio had us believing over the last month.
The Good News In about a week’s time, at the beginning of the Sagittarius Season, you might notice some of your fears have melted away because you realize there’s nothing real supporting their existence. Perspective is everything, and this energy definitely can change how we see our lives and problems, as it shines a giant spotlight on our progress.
But just a word of caution, we can be overly optimistic and have very high expectations during this time. And COVID is surging in many nearby countries, and it looks like we may have restrictions put upon us once again as it rises here in the United States. No matter what you believe, be safe because we can feel strongly about celebrating the Holidays with our friends and family.
The Sun in Sagittarius time can help us better understand our true meaning in this life and answer some questions about our existence. Which gives us a sense of purpose. This influence helps us have more trust and faith in the Universe again, creating a space to believe in something that’s not logical but more spiritual.
We become the light that guides us towards a happier life for ourselves and others. This influence brings our inner light to shine, but we can be quite aggressive if provoked. But our overall happy-go-lucky attitude helps us get through. New ideas and philosophies tend to pop up, which helps us learn and grow. Knowledge is extremely important during this time, so take the opportunities that come to learn about anything you can.
Since we feel more social, we tend to get out more and explore life. Our confidence gives us the courage and conviction to take the lead. And we take new paths and discover new journeys, which can open doors to amazing opportunities!
We can do well if we sync with the current cosmic energies and try new activities that are Sagittarius themed. The following things are strong during this time, travel, higher learning, spiritual journeys, school, books and reading, foreign places, religion, etc., philosophy, dreams, and Ah-ha moments.
Some of you will take new journeys that focus more on the true meaning of life so that you can gain more knowledge and a stronger sense of purpose.
Of course, it’s time to celebrate and be faithful, all very Sagittarian themes and symbolic of the Holiday season, no matter what path you believe or follow.
So enjoy this time because starting around December 22, we’ll have to get focused and take life much more seriously when Capricorn Season begins, a time to focus on taking care of business and getting to work. But we’ll discuss that later. Until then, enjoy the time we have in Sagittarius Season and try to have fun and go on an adventure. You deserve it!
The Holiday Eclipse Season is officially underway, and it often brings important life-changing energies into our lives. Eclipses always bring endings and new beginnings. The influence from an Eclipse can last up to a month or more after its peak, and some folks may have to deal with its side effects for up to a year. Eclipses often shake things up in our lives to create much-needed changes. These energies can force us to do something different or uncomfortable to initiate changes.
A long time ago, many Astrologers and religious leaders believed that Eclipses created bad luck, especially for those in power or authority figures.
Eclipse Season kicks off with a Lunar Eclipse that occurs on November 19. There are always two Eclipses back to back, a Lunar & Solar one.
The Nov. 19 Lunar Eclipse is in the sign of Taurus and occurs at 3:57 AM EST, 2:57 AM CST. This energy is strong and potent because a Lunar Eclipse is basically triple the energy of a Full Moon. So it can be extremely intense and difficult to handle for some people.
During a Lunar Eclipse, we see truths come to light, which has already begun. It’s like taking truth serum. Since we are smack in the middle of Scorpio Season and under the influence of a Scorpio Stellium (3 or more planets in the same sign) involving Mars and Mercury, it’s truth-telling time when lies, secrets, repressed feelings, both hidden or denied, are revealed.
This Eclipse energy is all over us throughout the rest of the year. As information randomly shows up, endings are also very possible. The Scorpio influences were under are ruled by Pluto, which represents endings, transformation, death, and rebirth. So these themes will play out in our lives, as we are already experiencing. Eclipse Season, we tend to see the souls who are at peace with their lives, and are ready to leave, crossover.
The second Eclipse is a Solar Eclipse that occurs on December 4 in the sign of Sagittarius. Solar Eclipses are just the opposite of a Lunar Eclipse and often bring new beginnings. Solar Eclipse can feel draining, but ultimately can revitalize and recharge us after they peak, as we receive interesting downloads of information and learn new and valuable information.
The Holiday Eclipses mark the beginning of eight Eclipses that fall in the Signs of Taurus and Scorpio over the next two years. The fixed signs of the Zodiac, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius, both Sun & Rising Signs, will be most affected by these energies, but we all can feel them in one way or another. These energies are profoundly strong but can often be felt in subtle ways, so you’ll learn what part of your life they affect over time.
If you’re into Astrology and know how to look up your Chart info, look for where Taurus and Sagittarius are in your Personal Birth Chart, and the House they’re transiting, and what it represents. That part of your life that will be the most affected.
This November Lunar Eclipse may present us with more challenging energy than usual because of the other Cosmic connections between planets occurring simultaneously. At least don’t make any decisions or draw conclusions until it’s over. Gather information during this time and see all that you learn first.
The Solar Eclipse on December 4 will be quite interesting because it connects to the United States Astrology Chart. (Every country, state, and even city in the world has its own birthday and an Astrology Birth Chart!)
Solar Eclipses bring powerful and potent energies into our lives. The December Solar Eclipse comes along with the New Moon, so it’s an excellent time to Set Intentions with the Universe. Make your hopes, dreams, and wishes known. Get your thoughts out of your head and heart and written down, and make some magic happen!
The United States and the Eclipses
On December 4, the Solar Eclipse falls at 12 degrees in the sign of Sagittarius. This placement is interesting because the United States Ascendant or Rising sign is also at 12 degrees of Sagittarius. This conjunction is potent for the United States.
The Holiday Eclipses of 2021 won’t be nearly as destructive as ones in the past, but they still can shake things up quite a bit. This influence will continue through June of 2022. There will be many endings and chapters closing and new beginnings initiated after the Eclipse occurs.
FYI – Anyone who celebrates a birthday on the day before or after an Eclipse tends to have important major events for 12 months afterward.
If you’d like a sneak peek at just how these Eclipses will affect your personal life, then think back to the Fall of the year 2002 and review the theme of that time. Depending on what part of your Astrology Birth Chart, the Eclipses are transiting are the part of your life the Eclipses will affect the most.
These Eclipse energies can take a lot of time and attention away from other parts of your life until the next Eclipses occur in the spring of 2022.
We must balance our responsibilities out in our lives during this time. The best way to do that is through spiritual practices that help you connect with your true authentic self, like meditation and journal writing. But so whatever works for you to stay grounded.
The Astrology Forecast for this week is interesting, but the energies can be extremely intense at times. There are four major planetary connections, and a New Moon in Scorpio occurs with a bit of a twist. Two planets shift signs through the Zodiac wheel, Venus and Mercury. So there’s a lot of energy moving around, which means there are a lot of different kinds of cosmic energies going around to work with.
Mental Mercury is quite busy this week as it wraps up its Retrograde after-Shadow period. This whole Mercury Retrograde cycle has been difficult, with major electronic glitches, snafus, and misunderstandings, so we can be thankful that energy is nearly over! Mercury is currently moving through the sign of Libra, so our relationships and our communication skills are more important than usual. Work on communicating better in your relationships, seriously.
Then a New Moon in Scorpio comes together on Nov 4, so we should wrap up old business and create plans for the next four days. It’s not the best time to start anything brand new. Just be patient until the New Moon, when the Cosmic energies will work with you and not against you.
This New Moon is different because it’s in opposition to shocking Uranus in Taurus. Uranus teaches us how to detach from our emotions and take care of business to obtain freedom and independence. This planet brings divine and higher self messages sometimes called “the bridge between Earth and the Heavens.” So pay attention to the Universe’s messages and any A-ha moments you have this week, as they can be important and helpful. If you’d like to change something up in your life, this is the week to do it! This energy can be especially helpful in letting go of negative energies and people who are not meant to be in your life anymore. Sometimes we have to let go of the past in order to create new beginnings. Be mindful of the changes you make, or they can become permanent.
Mon. Nov 1 –
The Moon remains in detailed Virgo but dips into its VOID cycle this afternoon, so it’s not the best time to start anything brand new. This influence lasts through this evening.
On Monday, a lovely connection between mental Mercury and lucky Jupiter occurs. It’s a great day to make plans, especially for next year. Jupiter helps us see the big picture, and Mercury helps us organize our ideas and thoughts. So at least make some goals out that you want to meet in 2022. It’s excellent energy for business matters and management and for finishing up agreements or commitments.
Chiron is meeting with the Sun causing our self-confidence to drop, and we can feel particularly vulnerable and guilty. It may not be easy to listen to our inner guidance today.
Tues. Nov 2 –
The Moon shifted last night into breezy Libra, and we can be extremely focused on our relationships. And to add to the intensity of the day, mental Mercury forms a tense square to powerful Pluto! First off, this energy can help us see a hidden aspect of ourselves and understand our true feelings. But it can also cause even more obsessive thinking and some serious paranoia. It’s not the time to be pushing your opinions or desires onto others. We can be quite direct as telling the truth comes naturally, but it can cause upset. Watch for manipulating others into feeling bad or guilty. We can make people feel alienated and frustrated, which can lead to bigger problems!
Wed. Nov 3 –
On Wednesday, the Moon continues to move through Libra. We may still feel tensions around power and control issues from the Moon/Pluto Squares influence still lingering for the first past of the day. So avoid power plays, especially at work. Later, the Moon-Mercury conjunction helps us find common ground and open up the lines of communication. The Sun comes out this afternoon, and the energies become more harmonious, especially when the emotional Moon meets up with Venus in fiery Sagittarius. Our emotions are in sync with our love lives, and couples and friends can enjoy some peace. Sexual activity is strong.
Thurs. Nov 4 – New Moon
The New Moon occurs at 5:15 PM EST, 4:15 PM CST. It’s a time of new beginnings, so make sure to Set your Intentions and make your wishes, desires, and future plans known to the Universe. You can check out my New Moon Blog on all my Social Media Pages to learn more under Rubys Readings.
Otherwise, the Sun opposes shocking Uranus later this evening. This influence creates an unstable atmosphere, and people may do things completely off track from their normal routines. Expect the Unexpected! Watch for dangerous situations, and pay attention! This influence can lead to mishaps and accidents, so be extra careful. Take your time today and be mindful of all that you do.
Friday, Nov 5 –
The Moon stays in mysterious Scorpio throughout most of the day, so if you didn’t get to Set Intentions with the New Moon energies yesterday, you’ve got until this evening. However, the Moon slips into the VOID early this afternoon, which can put us in a darker headspace. We can feel flat or unmotivated. So work on what you can and take care of yourselves.
On Friday, two planets are changing signs through the Zodiac Wheel – Venus Enters Capricorn, and finally, Mercury leaves Libra and enters Scorpio.
With Venus moving into stable Capricorn, we dance away from the fun and adventurous energy to get organized and deal with our reality. Capricorn energy is more traditional, and while transiting Venus, we tend to feel more comfortable and stable in our relationships and our financial affairs. With this energy in place, we should look at our responsibilities and duties within our relationships and make necessary changes. The work we put into our relationships and business dealings now will ultimately be more satisfying and rewarding down the road.
Later today, Mercury shifts signs finally, from its long transit through Libra, due to its Retrograde phase, and into deeper thinking Scorpio. This energy is part of an ongoing Scorpio Stellium (3 planets or more in the same Zodiac sign), with the Sun and Mars both in Scorpio as well.
Mercury in Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac. It gives us the ability to connect to our intuitive powers to see the unseen and helps us solve problems. It’s a time to seek the truth because, under all this Scorpio energy, we’re going to find plenty of it! Anything hidden, secret, or denied will be easier to expose during this time. So if you’ve got skeletons in the closet, you better come clean now while you can! Any important information learned during this cycle should be kept secret or quiet until you investigate how you want to proceed. Just do it carefully.
Sat & Sun, Nov 6 & 7 –
The Moon is in fiery Sagittarius all weekend, so we feel more like getting out and having an adventure of some kind. There’s romance in the air, as mental Mercury makes a romantic connection to loving Venus. Relationships can benefit from this energy if you take some actions with your nearest and dearest. It’s a good time to express how you’re feeling, especially with a partner or friend. Let them know you love them. Saturday night is good for a date night, so get out and enjoy this energy!
This weekend is full of love and optimism, and Sunday, the Moon hooks up with over the top Jupiter, and we may not be able to contain ourselves from expressing how we are feeling. Spend this time with the people you love.
