Mercury, the planet of communication, has been burning through Sagittarius, the most upbeat, extra sign in the Zodiac for the past three and half weeks. You might have felt more optimistic, open-minded, and outspoken over the last month with Mercury in Sagittarius. But this has made it more difficult to focus on the details or use our words as carefully.
Mercury moves into Capricorn on December 20th, giving you a stronger sense of mental fortitude, confidence, and a hardworking attitude. Mercury, is the planet that rules over our way of thinking, and thought processes. It’s that time again, to be practical about what works or doesn’t. Since our thinking slows way down, we can be more serious during this cycle, but really we are just more focused.
It’s a great period to seek out people you know who are experienced or wise, especially if they’ve accomplished something you want to achieve. These mentors or teachers can give out some valuable advice, and even may connect you with the right people who can help you achieve your goals in the long run.
Working harder becomes our motto again, especially with the Sun’s shift into Capricorn as well on December 21st. Just remember you’ll reap the rewards later from any time or energy you put into getting things done now.
With Mercury in Capricorn, our thinking is much more systematic, and our focus is more practical and sober. Under this influence, it’s much easier to concentrate on the task at hand. But our conversations can bring up reality checks, as we focus more on business and practical matters. Our thought processes and patterns of communication are more logical, orderly, and organized now. It’s just easier to sort out what is relevant and essential to KEEP THINGS REAL, as we speak no-nonsense, and being precise and cautious comes more naturally. However, we need to be wary of becoming too rigid with our thoughts and words, we can appear cold, cut-off, or harsh to others, and there is a fine line between being real and pessimistic.
The Earth Signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn can thrive under this influence, but the Cardinal Signs Aries, Cancer, and Libra might struggle to keep up until Mercury enters Aquarius on January 8, 2021.
Now that Mercury is in Capricorn, Mercury is asking you to take life a little more seriously. We’ve learned so much while Mercury was in Sagittarius, and now you’re able to use that information and knowledge under this cycle.
Today is a Brand New Day and a New Era! Jupiter enters a new sign into Aquarius, which is a fast-paced, exciting kind of energy that can be unpredictable throughout 2021. It’s a time of innovation and progression, as Jupiter can spread around some abundance once again.
Over the last year, Jupiter, the planet of growth, philosophy, and expansion, has been transiting the sign of Capricorn, alongside planets Saturn and Pluto in a very well structured Stellium connection. This trio has been dismantling our lives over the last year, in many different ways, so it’s been a time of crisis that brought out our fears to work through. It has been difficult to see the light at the end of this dark and stormy tunnel. Jupiter’s influence has been stunted, so it’s not been handing out miracles or blessings as usual. Instead, it’s been in restrictive Capricorn challenging our faith and spirituality.
Jupiter is all about expanding our horizons, as it seeks deeper meanings and spiritual truths, especially involving education, freedom, community, and ideals. Aquarius energy matches up better with Jupiter’s purpose. This helps us feel more comfortable as this energy is easier to take in. So maybe we can learn to enjoy ourselves again, without being locked down in 2021!
Jupiter has a strong need to be free of all restrictions and have open spaces to explore. Aquarius seeks freedom and independence at all costs. We are bound to break out of the whole Covid19 mess in one way or another! Saturn also moved into Aquarius on December 17th, so there still will be challenges and lessons as always with Saturn’s influence. And even though there will be times when we feel ourfreedom and independence are being infringed upon, Jupiter now can find ways to lift our spirits and pull us through while in Aquarius and later in Pisces!
Jupiter will shift into the sign of Pisces in May of 2021 when it goes Retrograde. This preview can give us clues as to how the energies will play out in October, once Jupiter shifts into Pisces throughout 2022! At that time, there will be a major shift, and our focus will turn towardsspiritual activities and we tend to feel more compassionate, loving, and forgiving anytime Jupiter is in Pisces.
Jupiter shifting between Aquarius and Pisces throughout 2021 will expand how we teach, learn, and communicate. We already had a glimpse into how quickly Aquarius energy can advance our technology game in 2020 when Jupiter was Retrograde. And we had no choice but to learn due to Covid19. These influences can help us align with causes for our highest-good! So while in Aquarius, Jupiter helps us tap into humanitarian efforts. And it makes it easier to connect to our tribe and like-minded people. We also may feel a stronger desire to help others, especially in group settings. Following a path that honors our true authentic-self is supported, and we can let go of what is no longer working.
Jupiter in both Aquarius and Pisces throughout 2021 syncs well together, because both signs have a deeper understanding of healing the world. This can help us focus on the bigger picture and keep in mind what’s best for all of us as a whole. We can feel this influence surround us, as it gives us a reason or a better sense of purpose to help bond our communities together. And fight for causes that affect all of us.
Jupiter will retrograde back into Aquarius in June and then finally move fully into Pisces by the end of December 2021. By this time, we should have a good idea of what our goals, hopes, and dreams are for a better, more connected world. Being under this blanket of Air Sign energy, we need mental stimulation to thrive on. But we will likely be craving spiritual and emotional connections strongly all year long. This energy helps to restore balance in how we relate to people, particularly with friends and socially. Our communication skills are on point, and we can share our ideas and opinions much more clearly with confidence. Good communication skills lead to solving problems and healing.
Jupiter in Aquarius encourages us to be the activist, and gives us a reason to give in from time to time. Once Jupiter is in Pisces in May for a short visit will learn strongly that a battle can be won when we surrender.
Jupiter will bestow some amazing gifts in 2021, especially without feeling so blocked or restricted. It’s a time of forgiveness, as we honor our intuition and feel more compassionate towards others.
Saturn finally shifts today out of the sign of Capricorn and into Aquarius, it remains there for the next three years! Saturn is starting a new 28-year Karmic Cycle with this move. This shift means the structures and foundations of our lives will change from Earth elements over to Air elements, and this energy will last for the next 200 years. Welcome to a new era, and “The Age Of Aquarius!”
This energy produce things that are associated with electricity, and under the Air theme we can feel more breezy, lighter, social, inventive, and brilliant. Aquarius energy is always innovative and 10 steps ahead in the future, so the inventions will see during this time will be fascinating, as technology will advance faster then ever! We tend to focus more so spiritual pursuits that are of the higher-mind, so more open and free. And often Aliens are associated with Aquarius energy.m, and we’ve already had several interesting finds over the last several months. There actually was a preview of this energy when Saturn went into Retrograde last Spring. So if you’re curious how this energy will play out, you might want to look back to that time at the structures in your life and think about what challenges you were dealing with. This influence can affect any part of our life.
The Lord of Karma, Saturn moves into Aquarius, and helps break up the restrictive energy we’ve been dealing with all throughout 2020. This powerful Capricorn Stellium (more than three planets in the same sign.) This shift is historic, as it moves humanity into a revolutionary energy,Which we’ve already seen play out around the world.
Aquarius energy is all about freedom, and it wants what’s good for “All.” More than ever, people will fight for not their rights, but they will also demand social justice and change. And generally speaking, people won’t give up on these kind of humanitarian issues very easily. This rare shift turns our focus into changing our awareness and consciousness as a whole. We can connect to the information we need throughout this time. There’s an opportunity to help each other be more supportive to our communities and grow to be more like family.
Aquarius energy is an intellectual one, so we will need to take a look at the “Bigger picture” under this influence, and how our actions affect our way of life for our future. This is an innovative time that will strongly advance our technology game, so we are headed into some amazing times.
Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer, but actually, it’s an Air sign. It is symbolized by the diversity of all ideas, big or small, being brought together and poured into oneness. Ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius carries a strong electromagnetic current, so it can cause sudden eruptions and disruptions to occur in our life. Aquarius energy can bring shocking news or surprises of all kinds. But it is also represented as the higher mind of the Cosmos, and it helps us think beyond normal time and space limits and past the ego. It’s a bridge between here and the heavens, as it relays messages or A-ha moments to us. This helps us connect directly to source or higher power energies and enhance ourknowingness.
During this shift into the Age of Aquarius, we must remain open-minded and be more willing to do things differently! There will be many technological advancements that can help improve our way of life here on Earth, over the next several years. We all can benefit greatly from the diversity of our brilliant ideas and what we bring to the table, like inventions and genius like thinking. Aquarius energy has a deeper belief and understanding that everyone is the same despite their differences. Saturn will challenge us to look at humankind as one entity and not separated. This energy has already played out in our lives, with such things as women’s rights and the Black Lives Matters movement! Therefore its energy has slowly been building to come together for awhile now.
Saturn is the planet that shows us how to follow the rules and do what is expected. It works hard to create order by restricting and blocking us, so we will learn how to be somewhat emotionally detached and make good solid decisions. As Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn’s energies are serious about taking care of business. It serves as a constant reminder to learn self-mastery skills and responsibility. Saturn is the Authority of the Zodiac, and the great teacher, so it requires us to do the work involved to grow and mature. Therefore, we may appear somewhat cold and cut off, but usually we are just more focused. This heavy feeling energy can be suppressive, as it puts limitations, restrictions, and Karma out to help us learn. But it’s lessons can be With Saturn in Aquarius, it can be easier to move beyond limitations in place from our past. It encourages us to think in ways that support our authentic self-expression and to honor our personal individuality. The emphasis is on healing the collective as a whole, as this energy is all about the oneness. Working towards the good of all is our common goal now. Aquarian energy is always about keeping things equal.
Saturn connects to Jupiter in Aquarius (the humanitarian) on December 21st, 2020, called the “Great Conjunction.” These two giants first meet up in the Karmic degree of completion at 29 degrees of Capricorn on December 15th. It’s time to let go of the behaviors, beliefs, and habits that we’ve been living by over the last 28 years! We should focus on the lessons we start to learnnow to move ahead into the future. This energy will help us usher in so many new things starting on the 21st, so we can close the door on the past.
Saturn wants us to be more committed towards each other and to the greater good by doing things in groups, and as teams in combined forces. This will be required to create a future full of abundance. Jupiter will provide this energy as it also shifts into the sign of Aquarius on December 20th! Saturn will not leave the sign of Aquarius until March 7th, 2023, when it moves into the sign of Pisces. Many karmic lessons will finally end that came together in 2020 at that time.
The Age of Aquarius energy is one of collective Unity. This energy can liberate us and teach us that we have the power to move forward as a society. And to let go of outdated systems that are no longer working for us. The world is entering a new and exciting age of evolution now. The age of Aquarius is upon us! Saturn always will make sure that we are held accountable but also be rewarded for our efforts, hard work, and the attention we give to each other.
Venus in Sagittarius – Exploration of a Higher Love Dec 15 2020 – Jan 8 2021
For All Zodiac Signs
With Venus, the planet of love and values, shifting into more free-spirited, optimistic Sagittarius, there’s a stronger desire for more freedom, adventure, and spontaneity in our relationships. With Venus moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, romantic energies go from deeply intense to more cheerful and hopeful.
These Sagittarian energies can be intense, considering it’s a fire sign. And there’s a ton of other planets currently in fire signs. However, we tend to be less focused and more into a Universal kind of love, so we can feel like loving on a high level. There’s a stronger desire to connect with like-minded people, who usually are more open-minded. We are looking to exchange energies by sharing our knowledge and opinions. So you may start to notice a stronger urge to merge or connect with other people, who are more on your intellectual level and who enjoy chatting about philosophies.
We can feel more social and want to try new things and meet new and interesting people. We may need to be free from our relationships, especially if they have been boring or are causing stress. Simply take some space and realign yourself during this cycle, or you could leave just because you need freedom. Not because you don’t love your partner or lover. It’s all to easy to break away for the time being and do considerable damage to a good relationship if you’re not careful, especially under all these strong fire energies, so try to think before making any permanent changes.
Venus in Sagittarius can help us see in the long-term, as we are more tuned into the bigger picture than the details. This might bring on some strong realizations that you need to reevaluate your love life and whatever is concerning your finances.
We can be attracted to people that bring more value, growth, or expansion to our relationships during this transit. Something or someone has to be more open, receptive, and free. There can be a stronger desire to travel and have some fun, so we can enjoy exploring and having an adventure of some kind. It can feel amazing to be free, and flow with the energies, and let our hearts lead the way.
If a relationship is stressful, this transit can encourage you to do some soul searching about where it’s headed. But you might not give it too much thought because you are distracted by thoughts of exploration. Ask yourself if your intimate relationship is going in the right direction, and then align with your truth. We can be focused on how restrictive we’re feeling in our relationships rather than how secure we are. If you’re able to be your true authentic self is more important now.
This influence allows us to reflect on our relationships, love life, self-worth, and finances. Are there any areas in your life that are of value that need to be improved or changed? It’s ok now to be curious and to think up new ideas and perspectives. This influence brings an opportunity to leave behind poverty consciousness or thinking in lack! It helps us see the abundance around us. It’s a good time to set yourself free from limited thinking and begin believing in the possibilities.
You may find love or money comes in more easily, and you can feel more confident during this cycle. Be open to leaving your comfort zone, to explore and be more adventurous and courageous. Allow yourself to go beyond your normal limitations. Free yourself from restrictions, and try to be more hopeful and optimistic. There is so much potential and opportunity that is ahead. Miracles happen every day, every minute, and every second. Why can’t one of them be yours!
On December 14, 2020 – a New Moon, Total Solar Eclipse occurs at 23°08’ of Sagittarius.
Over the last few weeks of Eclipse Season, a portal of energy has been opened. We have been walking blindly through one of the darkest years of our lives. The uncertainty alone has been a major source of anxiety for many. But we have hope for something equally as good and amazing in the future. This New Moon Eclipse, all though dark (all New Moon’s have no light to illuminate), is the symbol of light we need that shines the way towards the end of this tumultuous year. It is the beginning of a New Era!
This Eclipse brings endings and new beginnings, to potentially get rid of an old inner reality we’ve been holding onto. It’s time to take full responsibility for what we’re creating in our life. Sagittarius energies encourage us to go out beyond the normal boundaries, and explore or discover some new great adventure. It’s an opportunity to express our visions, and to connect with energy that’s new and fresh
With the New Moon in the sign of Sagittarius, we tend to feel more optimistic and hopeful, so it’s no surprise that when the Moon and Sun both align (New Moon) in this fire sign, that faith and hope will be restored. No matter how difficult life has been, we may feel or just know that things will get better. We tend to believe in spiritual truths and deeper meanings, more so.
However, with the Moon and Sun both conjunct the Moon’s South Node, which means this Eclipse can also bring significant endings, loss, and chapters closing in our lives. So make sure to honor your own feelings and others both, even if you’re not feeling particularly hopeful right now.
This Eclipse is conjunct mental Mercury, which means it’s important that we speak our truth. It serves as a reminder that our words hold power, and we can quickly realize how we speak our ideas into existence and create our own reality daily. Conversations can be interesting, so try to remain uplifting and inspiring without being dishonest or ignoring your integrity. Manifest something positive in your life to come in!
The Solar Eclipse is squaring foggy Neptune in its own sign of Pisces. So we must try to see the difference between positive thoughts and wishful thinking. It’s important not to make false promises or commitments. We may feel exhausted by this energy.
Luckily, the Moon, Sun, Mercury, and South Node are all in the sign of Sagittarius. And the New Moon makes a nice Trine to Mars in Aries. We’ve got extra fiery willpower to take action and follow through. As our motivation levels are high! It’s important to channel your energy into learning, growth, and evolution. Think of others, not just yourself.
Sagittarius is ruled by over the top Jupiter, so we can sometimes overdo it under all this Sadge energy. Over this last year, with Jupiter’s transit of Capricorn, we have been taught to live with less. Now we can use these skills to break out of the Pandemic and change things around.
Jupiter forms amazing Sextile connections with Venus and asteroid Juno on the same day as the Eclipse. We’re talking major “Huge Opportunities” for wealth and growth!
PAY ATTENTION! If you are one of the many, who like to SET INTENTIONS with the NEW MOON. This energy is going to give us a major boost in the manifesting department! It’s a time to focus on what you want, so MAKE A WISH LIST! Since Jupiter is involved, the sky is that limit! Go big or go home!
Learn all about Setting Intentions Energy work over on my Blog at rubysreadings.com
And finally, we also have Chiron, which is in fiery Aries turning direct from Retrograde just right before this Eclipse on December 15th. Chiron is the Wounded Healer and Teacher of the Zodiac! This is our gift from the Cosmos, as it can be a special time of healing.
Venus, the planet of love, shifts into more faithful Sagittarius on the 15th, yet another planet in a Fire Sign! We may desire more space and freedom from our nearest and dearest, but Covid going around it may not be such a bad thing. We just want to do our own thing and give others the chance to learn and grow.
The rare Solar Eclipse is just the beginning of what looks to be a great week astrologically! As both Saturn and Jupiter shift into the sign of Aquarius on the 17th & 20th. And on the same day of the magical Winter Solstice Dec 21st, these two planets meet up in the rare event called the “Great Conjunction.” This is perhaps one of the biggest Cosmic shifts we’ll see in our lifetime. And it starts off a brand new 20 yr cycle, even though we won’t understand its magnitude of influence into way down the road.

Rubys Astro Readings Holiday Eclipses & The Great Conjunction
There are two life Changing Eclipses over the holiday season in 2020. They are in the Signs of Gemini and Sagittarius, but affect each and every one of us! Eclipses are always about endings, so they often create shifts in our lives that are necessary. The part of your life these energies affect depends on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart they are cruising through, and whatever points they activate will affect your life through June of 2021.
The first Eclipse on November 30 is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Gemini. The second Eclipse is a New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 14 in Sagittarius.
Babies who come into the world during the Full Moon Eclipse through December 21 arrive during the Winter Solstice time. These souls will be wonderful teachers for their generation. They can end up making some amazing contributions to the world. Also, the babies who are born around the Eclipse can end up being trendsetters or important in one way or another and often are quite popular.
Eclipse Information Full Moon Eclipse: November 30 in Gemini.
This Eclipse affects all the Signs in the Zodiac, but especially Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo or anyone with those signs in prominent parts of their Birth Charts. As I mentioned, Lunar Eclipses bring about endings, so the Solar Eclipse in December is when something new begins.
Full Moon Eclipses are a time of completion. Answers randomly show up, especially about problems you’ve been dealing with or working on since last spring. This lunation is a time when truths are revealed, so pay attention to your dreams starting now. We can be quite emotional during this Full Moon Eclipse, as it shines a light on what has been hidden, regressed, or kept secret!
Solar Eclipse December 14 in Sagittarius
Solar Eclipses can bring sudden events that cause disruptions. There can be chaos and crisis like moments that come out of nowhere. However, there can be good effects from them as well.
A Solar Eclipse is basically a very powerful New Moon. It’s a good time to make plans for the future. Set your intentions and make out those Wish Lists. This Eclipse will affect Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo in a big way. But of course, it affects all the Signs of the Zodiac.
If this Eclipse happens to impact your life strongly in one way or another, and usually, this is more positive, but not always. If your birthday happens to fall around or on the day of the Eclipse on December 14, it’s going to be very strong and can create big changes.
Eclipse Update Eclipses occur every 19 years. So the solar and lunar Eclipses occured at the same points in 2001. You might want to think about what was happening back then. There can be some similarities occurring between now and then, and you could heal something in a big way.
You just have to remember that an Eclipse magnifies things, especially that are related to the house it goes through in your Astrology Birth Chart. So those particular areas of your life are going to demand more of your focus, attention, and energy. This transit will last from this holiday season until next June! Expect new doors to open and for big changes to affect our lives, and hopefully, it helps lead us to new paths that give us better opportunities.
The Great Conjunction As we inch towards the end of the year, we enter the peak of a major Cosmic event. The Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in Earth signs ends a 200 year Era.
Under these earthy energies, our focus shifted to material security and resources. And we tend to be more resistant to change, which we’re already experiencing, are the old ways versus the new on a global level. But this is about to end, and a new Era based on Air Sign energy is creating a breakup of our established orders.
The Great Conjunction occurs in December. Jupiter and Saturn both move into the Air sign Aquarius next month; this will bring some dramatic changes to our lives. What really sets the tone for sudden and shocking changes is that the planet Uranus is also forming an aspect with Jupiter around the same time. So will need to be mindful and careful during December and January, so pay attention to your surroundings.
Jupiter and Uranus come together and help eliminate old social structures but bring new challenges and opportunities with them. As we inch closer to the Great Conjunction and the Jupiter/Uranus aspect, it can be very important to ask yourself what you can release or should let go of to help create the energy and space for something new in your life.
This Cosmic shift is very important and has been forming all year long, so we have already been experiencing the powerful energy of the Great Conjunction! It will not come back together again under Earth Signs for decades.
Venus enters Scorpio Nov 21st – December 15th 2020
It’s a time of intensity, passion, and deeper commitment to our relationships and financial affairs.
With the headmistress Scorpio in sultry Venus, any skeletons in our romantic closets can fall right out. So we tend to be more secretive about love and money. This influence can bring an intimate encounter with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. It can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a deeper soul level. It’s a time of healing and transformation in our relationships. Still, if we want to get to a recovery point, we must first pull out our deeper emotional stuff and do some serious analysis.
Venus in seductive Scorpio has the power to draw out what’s superficial in our love lives and our financial affairs. Secrets are often exposed as cheating lovers, or partners are discovered. This energy brings out the truth and wants us to deal with the jealousy, secrets, abuse, or misguided behavior in our lives.
With Venus in Scorpio, we want to get to the bottom of our problems and go below the surface to examine our issues more deeply. Especially in situations involving power, fear, and sex. Venus is in determinet while in Scorpio, so it’s not concerned with superficiality and prefers the chase in love, so it wants to transform us.
Venus rules over our relationships, so it is a more affectionate and social energy kind of energy. Scorpio is about passion and likes to go into the depths of love. This means we might crave more meaningful and intense emotional experiences. It takes us into something deeper, as love and intimacy become equally important. This idea of dating isn’t as comfortable because we’re searching for long-lasting romantic encounters instead. This energy can help us build on our committed relationships as well.
The shadow side of Venus’s energy is more wild and lusty. Take into consideration what people will do in the name of love, as it can get dark. People can become obsessive and paranoid. This influence is mysterious and secretive, so we are not in the mood to play nice. We want to dig deeper into our emotional wounds to spark some change.
Our inner detective is on high alert and wants to figure out what’s lurking in the Shadows. Paranoia can set in as suspicions start to play in our minds, we may start looking for signs of betrayal in our relationships and closer circle. This transit can help us discover what we are intuitively picking up on and help us get to the bottom of our relationship problems. This energy shines a light on the truth and what’s really happening. Even though we usually are more willing to stick things out, and find common ground in our relationships, reality checks are strong and can break or strengthen existing bonds.
“Scorpio energy wants to transform us, which means it can get rough as we enter into a time of deep analysis and psychotherapy in our relationships, under the Venus is in Scorpio transit!”
Venus in Scorpio also brings out concerns involving money and business, including power struggles and power plays. Private issues we tend to ignore suddenly become more obvious during this time and are often exposed! How we spend our money is important, especially in partnerships where financial resources are shared. It’s an interesting time for financial investments, as we can make effective decisions concerning things like loans, insurance, or banking.
Venus, in Scorpio’s intense energy, can feel emotionally burdening, but it also can transform us and help our relationships evolve. And this can lead to strengthening bonds if we take on the challenges of this transit, even if it’s rough at times. It’s a sexy time that can bring our partners closer or help us even meet a soulmate. Try to keep your compulsive thoughts in check and enjoy this energy!
The New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on November 14th or 15th, depending on your Time Zone, but is felt now and throughout the weekend. With both the Sun and Moon in the sign of Scorpio, it is super strong and potent. And can be a powerful time to work on yourself.
Think about doing some New Moon energy work. Simply, make out a Wish List or write down what you want to start or begin under this New Moon energy! Set Intentions! New Moons always bring New Beginnings, but this particular New Moon is all wrapped up nice and tight in the sign of endings, Scorpio, the sign of the Zodiac that represents resurrection. We may have to fall or fail, or let something end in our lives, only to rebuild ourselves anew! We then can rise like the stories of the Pheonix and create a new better life for ourselves in one way or another.
It is also Eclipse Season, so our Moon work can involve releasing and letting go, perhaps finish or close something in your life. Make wishes and wish-lists, write about whatever you want! Release a situation, person, or what you should let-go, this also can include worn-out old beliefs and behaviors. This New Moon energy is transformational and can be life-changing.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be working on our self-mastery skills. It’s a good time to discover what parts of our lives feel out of control. We can release our inner demons with things like addiction or debts and free ourselves from emotional burdens. This energy produces an opportunity to get rid of any excess “stuff” we have been holding on to in our lives, be it material or spiritual. We may feel moved to dig much deeper when it comes to life’s mysteries rather than staying content with the status quo. So it’s important to get in touch with what motivates you, and what will enhance your feelings for intimacy, forgiveness, and meaning. We have a deeper need to feel a sense of purpose and depth in our lives and within our souls. We can truly move forward by doing things during this cycle to develop a new idea, project, or relationship.
Look for ways to release any fears of confrontation or emotionally heavy situations. This New Moon energy can help us learn by taking us out of our comfort zone and making us uncomfortable. So even if a situation is tense it can lead us into psychological healing.
This New Moon is harmonizing with Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto as well. We can quickly discover support and motivation from within to accomplish our goals, as this energy has our back and can help us set goals. It gives us the drive and imagination to make things work.
Still, during the New Moon loving Venus is forming a tense Square to Pluto, the planet of transformation and lord of the underworld. Goddess, Venus also squares off with over the top Jupiter! These influences can cause major disruptions, which can lead us into exploring our true motivations. What makes us tick! With the TRUTH out of the bag, we can understand the deeper meanings of any challenging situation that comes our way.
It’s important to keep ourselves in check when it comes to exaggeration, so we shouldn’t go out of our way to seek approval, love, or more meaning in our lives, or we can blow things way out of proportion. We can overstate, boost, and brag. As we express ourselves and our feelings in a big way. Watch for doing things in excess and stirring up drama just to get attention, as we can give certain situations much more time and energy than their worth. We might think we can get noticed through exaggerating, but this will surely backfire.
These Cosmic transits can also magnify or boost our insecurities, which means we can feel suspicious, jealous, or paranoid. Socially the interactions we have can be intense and can provoke tense feelings with those involved. Any relationship drama that comes up can get in the way of our goals with our lovers or partners. Our financial affairs can also have major highs and lows, big wins, or big losses, so choose wisely!

The Covid19 Virus is surging strongly right now, as Astrologically it’s peaking from the long-term Saturn/Pluto and Jupiter/Pluto Conjunctions that have been occurring all year long! Now with somany planets in Scorpio, and Eclipse Seasonunderway things are out of control! The energy of the Zodiac Sign Scorpio and Eclipse Season, both are about Endings! However, it also helps us to rebuild and manifest a new way of handling the Virus.

As we get through the final dramatic months of 2020, do your best to be extra careful and work together.
I know this is a bit late but it’s been a wild week! I figured I would post the whole thing since much of the Astro Influences listed are still affecting us today and throughout November. 😉
Nov 1st – Nov 30th
November is another fairly wild month once again on the Astrological front. With Mercury, Mars, and Neptune all turning direct from Retrograde, the energies will be a bit confusing. There will be a constant push and pull kind of feeling taking us over. And there is a partial Eclipse coming together, which means business.
Mercury turned direct from its Retrograde phase, which set the tone for November on the 4th.
Which just happens to be the same day as the US Election. This can cause major confusion! There will be delays and opposition when it comes to the results. Still, this exciting energy provided by the Universe is a confusing time as it already is! So this just adds another layer of mental fog and stress.
Also, tense Mars is still in Aries and Retrograde. Mars starts up its aggressive Squares to the ongoing Stellium in Capricorn, which will be stronger in early December. Luckily, both Mercury and Venus are in Libra, for the time being, promoting diplomacy and justice; this will hopefully bring some more positivity into the mix for the time being.
By Mid-November, the Cosmic vibes get deeper and intense. So life is extreme, and our lessons can be more transformative with intellect Mercury rolling back into the sign of Scorpio on November 10th. Our intuition is strong, and we can experience profound insights into our lives and problems. With Mercury in Scorpio, the truth comes out, as this influence tends to open up all that is hidden, kept secret, regressed, and forgotten. We are more focused and driven, so we should use this energy to our advantage. We will be discovering other folk’s motivations, and the deeper the problems are buried, the better, as searching for what’s wrong is mentally satisfying.
The New Moon on November 15th is actually in the sign of Scorpio as well. Jupiter will still be in Capricorn and will conjunct Saturn the same day. That’s big stuff! These two heavy-hitting planets meeting up can be extremely heavy feeling and burdensome, so that we can feel quite drained by this influence. We may not be able to see the future possibilities as easily, as we may be quite focused on the negative. There can be restrictions imposed on us, and supplies can be reduced, especially with COVID-19 being at an all-time high now! We may be forced once again to lockdown! As this transit means business. But we also can discover brilliant ways to start new projects and solve problems because, after all, this is a New Moon. New Moon’s are new beginnings front and center, always! This could mean we have to say goodbye to something or realize that a chapter of our life might be coming to an end so that we can move forward.
On the 21st, Venus enters the sign of Scorpio, and love and relationships can get intense. Our relationships can become emotionally unstable. This a time of profound emotional growth and wild and crazy intimacy! Venus, while in Scorpio, brings intensity to our connections with other people of all kinds. There’s a carnal desire to understand why we are in certain close relationships, especially ones that are intimate and to do with business. This influence could ultimately be the driving force that reads some relationships apart.
Then, on the 21st, the Sun enters sunny feeling Sagittarius. Our focus shifts to our outer experiences and our desires grow stronger to have an adventure! We want to reach out to the world and connect to something bigger than ourselves. We are searching for what’s better or more expanded and are seeking a deeper knowledge than before. We can have more energy, and our self-confidence can grow stronger during this time. It’s important, to tell the truth, or at least your truth, and be more straightforward, outgoing, and idealistic as our minds are more open. Trying to keep things fair and less judgmental is important. Our personality is large, and we may need open spaces to be free and explore, so we enjoy outdoor activities. This is a great time for exercise of any kind.
And at the end of November, the energies will gain intensity once again when a Lunar Eclipse comes together in the sign of Gemini. The Full Moon is a partial Eclipse penumbral, to be precise, so luckily, this means not as intense! This Eclipse can present us with an issue that has us looking in many different directions and leaves folks feeling confused. Which means they are unable to make wise decisions. With the Sun in Sagittarius, we must look at the big picture and make sure our goals are aligned with our longer-term plans to head in the right direction to meet success.
The Sun shifted into the sign of transformation, and mystery, Scorpio. “Scorpio Season” begins Oct 22, 2020, and runs through Nov 21, 2020.
The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio energy drives us to explore the depths of the soul. As the Sun’s light exposes the truth, and all that has been hidden, repressed, secret, or ignored tends to come out. So if you’ve got any skeletons in your closet, clean it up now, or you might just get found out.
The Sun in Scorpio is a time of emotional depth, intimacy, and transformation. Therefore, whatever is fake or false is usually brought out and exposed for what it is, including conversations and betrayals. Superficial anything doesn’t work during this time, because we want the real deal. We need to know that people are genuine and authentic.
Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence in Scorpio can have you feeling more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are more interested in getting to the bottom of things, as we want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown! It’s a time when we see the unseen with our uncanny Psychic abilities. So we can pick up on the energies around us very quickly. Even if we don’t trust our intuition, the signs are more evident than usual during this time. We enjoy things and people that are odd, taboo, or different in this energy, so anything plain or average is boring.
During Libra season over the last month, we worked towards being fair and equal. During Scorpio season, we accept the fact that life isn’t fair and understand that pain and suffering are part of the process of being human, and to truly evolve we must transform ourselves, which means we must end something to begin something anew.
Scorpio energy can have us feeling sexy, mysterious, and provocative. But we tend to be more secretive, as we feel more passionate, strong-willed, and often intense. This can be a time of transformation and healing.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. We can become obsessed over an issue or problem, and try to figure it out repeatedly, and get nowhere as we continue to dig deeper to learn or understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough or when to quit!
Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Scorpio through Oct 27, due to Mercury’s Retrograde (backward) cycle. It travels back through the sign of Libra on Oct 27 through Nov 9, and then goes back into Scorpio from Nov 10 – 30. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with!
This Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes after something ends. We have fallen in some way or have had to give up, like the tales of the Phoenix! It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection, as we rise to specific challenges and above what has fallen around us! Scorpio Season affects all Zodiac Signs, as this energy is something we can learn from. It’s about regeneration and claiming our lives back, as we start to rebuild after the wild and crazy year we’ve had. It’s the best energy to renew ourselves under, because Scorpio energy teaches us how to do what needs to be done, as it gives us extreme focus and stamina. We can be more driven and motivated to take care of business.
By the time we get to the end of November, and the end of Scorpio Season, hopefully, we will have some plans in place, since most of 2020 will be spent taking life day by day, and just surviving which is so exhausting. May this Scorpio Season illuminated by the Sun’s energy show you the way, and help you get through.
The Harvest Full Moon or Warrior Moon comes together Thursday, October 1st, 2020.
A Full Moon creates emotional energy, so this is when the issues in our life peak, which can be a good or bad situation. This lunation is the first of two Full Moon’s that occur in October, the second one being a Full “Blue Moon” on Halloween!
The Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aries this time around, Aries is ruled by Mars, and Mars is also transiting its home sign of Aries right now, also in Retrograde! In other words, this is a extremely passionate, heated up, fiery, driven kind of energy, so use it for good! There is revealing information coming through that can be deeply meaningful, but we should wait to take any action on whatever we learn. Just until the Full Moon energy wears down by the weekend.
The Full Moon is a time when the truth is revealed; as the light illuminates the planet, it also brings out uncomfortable feelings, but truth-telling is always on the menu as well as some insomnia! Which, by the way, is the number one question I get from clients and blog readers every month, “Why am I not sleeping?” Well, that’s easy; it’s the Full Moon energy that keeps us wired and awake.
It’s a time when our feelings tell us what’s happening, so our intuition is super strong, and we can experience epiphanies or A-ha moments, and Psychic visions or feelings can occur awake or asleep. This particular Full Moon serves as a reminder to think about how we treat ourselves in our close relationships or partnerships. There can be new moments of awareness or revelations about our roles as leaders so that we may have strong feelings of independence, and our ability to start or initiate something is much more on point.
Helping these energies along is a strong connection between relationship-ruling Venus and Pluto, the planet of transformation. This influence can help us be more strategic, but to the point about money and relationships, Venus turns which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just expect people to tell you how they really feel!
This Full Moon is connected firmly to the Mars/Saturn Square, as it can cause significant aggression and anger to erupt suddenly without little warning, especially with authority figures or those with power or control over us. Saturn, at its basic, is about the rules and responsibilities. In a tense, Square, there can be frustrations, agitation, and anger, again with anyone trying to exert power or control over us. And anyone is fair game! The emotions we hold deeply have been building up over the last month, and they can suddenly be exposed in one way or another. The Full Moon is when the Sun and Moon tensely oppose each other, which can feel intense. We’ve already been experiencing this for the last few days, with Fires still raging and all kinds of explosive crime and behavior. Most folks, will be challenged to not go off if they get angered for any reason.
However, if we focus on ourselves, we can feel empowered and set an excellent example for others. In turn, this kind of behavior can inspire others to do something for themselves. We need to be asking ourselves some questions under these energies. Who have you been taking care of, and where are you focusing most of your time and energy? Have you been coming from a self-centered place, by only helping someone for your own selfish reasons? Time to make it right! Remember the truth will indeed set you free in this kind of energy!
It’s a high energy kind of Full Moon, as we can feel extra energized and driven to begin or end certain situations. Being so focused can be distracting, so we may not realize that we’re dealing with something or someone toxic! Under this fiery Full Moon, we are more likely to take action due to feeling agitated. It’s essential to be mindful of this energy and harness our own personal power without abusing it, to avoid letting things get out of control.
But Full Moons always magnify existing problems, so it’s vital to decide how you want to move forward peacefully. This influence can help us get out of a bad situation that is toxic or abusive. If you need to express your feelings, this energy can help you be brave. Which, hopefully, enables you to get out of bad situation or relationship. But be careful, it’s still very explosive energy. So if you need to end something, be prepared and ready.
This lunation also activates other cosmic bodies that can set our tempers off, so there can be errors in judgment due to feeling extra sensitive and getting more easily upset. It creates a highly charged-up atmosphere, and people can be very impulsive. It can be a chaotic feeling Full Moon and energy! Some folks can act like they have no sense, and will react without much forethought, and can suddenly lash out. This energy, unfortunately, can cause outrage, rebellion, and tempers to flare at its worst. There can be more rioting and violence around the protests.
However, as this Full Moon tension builds and the frustrations rise, it’s important to remember the best way to handle it. Which is to Let Go and release all that pent up anger by being OPEN, FLEXIBLE, and adapting to the changes that are happening around you. Please don’t get into power struggles, ego battles, or disputes; it is not worth it! Remember that when people are this riled up, they can’t hear you. They are deaf! Especially, if they suffer from any natural Impulsivity issues, because they’re too busy talking over you or thinking about their next sentence, it won’t be about your opinions or ideas under these energies. So most of the time, it’s just best to walk away from arguments for the next few days. Take a breath and a walk, if you feel yourself getting upset or agitated just simply get away from the situation as fast as you can to cool down.
Harness this powerful Full Moon energy over the next few days, and don’t forget this is a powerful time to “Set Intentions” with the Moon’s energies, just simply write put a wish list of what you want to release or let go of in your life, and then add what you would like to see come in to your world. Your dreams and desires. To learn more about how to Set Intentions, click the link below.
