Mars Enters Scorpio

๐ŸŒŸFor All Zodiac Signs ๐ŸŒŸ


The day before Halloween, on October 30th, Mars creeps into the sign of Scorpio. People will be much more direct and to the point! In fact, after holding back for so long, there might be some outbursts. Even though some feelings might get hurt, it’s good for releasing all those pent-up feelings you might have held back while Mars was in Libra, as we’ve been held back from expressing ourselves authentically.

In Scorpio, the Mars influence can bring out our passions, but we can be obsessive in anything we do physically or sexually. Our focus shifts to getting what we want. With Mars in Scorpio, it’s easier to assert yourself in the actions you take, so you can feel more driven and focused on getting things done. During this period, you can be more strong-willed and resilient.

With the Sun and mental Mercury about to shift into Scorpio, we can get caught up in our feelings deeply. If you’re not focused on taking care of business, you may need more space to think and process the depths of your emotions. There are experiences and lessons to be learned during this time about claiming your own personal power. Since Mars is involved, it can be a strong cycle to transform something in your life around your physical well-being and sex life.

As I mentioned, you can be too focused on getting what you want and become obsessive. Once you’re on a mission, it may be difficult to stop and know when enough is enough. It may be more important to get to the bottom of a problem, especially if you’re already frustrated or angry, and you might be more interested in revenge, and that’s never a good idea, Karma folks! Just saying!

It’s a time when we are fascinated by all that’s hidden, kept secret, denied, or repressed. And it can be more mysterious and interesting to get caught up in other people’s experiences or drama to understand them better. The truth often comes out and is exposed, especially in the actions you take or if you’re provoked or irritated. Watch that temper and be mindful about how you communicate with others, or you can come off a bit too honest and hurt someone’s feelings. This Scorpio energy makes you more assertive and unapologetically direct! So try to think before you speak unless something needs to be said, then go for it!

It’s a good time for getting organized, as this energy can give you the drive to declutter your office and home. During the Mars in Scorpio cycle, you can do the necessary work and dig deeper emotionally, so then you can enjoy getting rid of anything old or outdated. It’s a great time to clean out those closets. We’re simply clearing the energies out to bring in something new, which can be healing. So throw out those old photo albums of your ex-lover or pictures of old friends you no longer hang with and get rid of anything that holds the energy from your past negative experiences. Throw it out! It’s time to let go and move forward.

You don’t want to avoid important issues because you can be attracted to chaos and crisis, which go hand in hand with Mars in Scorpio. Any problem areas in your life can be transformed, which is exciting psychologically and emotionally.

This influence can feel intense and extreme, but you’d rather go through it than be numb and feel nothing at all. Your normal everyday life and routines can be unsatisfying during this time. We need to feel alive, which means we often have to feel some sort of pain, and with Mars involved, that usually means psychically. But Scorpio energy teaches us to move through it as it’s an important part of our growth.

Scorpio Season โ™

Rubys Astro Readings
Scorpio Season
Oct 23 – Nov 21

For All Zodiac Signs

The Sun shifts into the sign of transformation and mystery, Scorpio, and “Scorpio Season” begins on Oct 23, 2021, and runs through Nov 21, 2021.

The mysterious Scorpio energy is known for being darker and often misunderstood. Symbolically, Scorpio’s energy drives us to explore the depths of the 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, and we learn about others’ betrayals. Anything superficial doesn’t work during this time because we want the real deal, as there’s a deeper need to know that people are genuine and authentic.

Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac, so the Sun’s influence while in Scorpio can have you feeling more suspicious and even a bit paranoid. We are generally more interested in getting to the bottom of things, so we often want to uncover what’s hidden, suppressed, or unknown. It’s a time when we see the unseen, and the unknown becomes known, with our uncanny 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 things and people that are odd, taboo, or 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. Scorpio Season is a time when we 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 begin something new.

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 is a time of transformation and healing. But we can overshare our thoughts and feelings as we want to explore them to understand ourselves better.

The shadow side of Scorpio energy can have us feeling more jealous, paranoid, and obsessive, so often, people who are more cunning and manipulative are out and about. Obsessions over certain issues or problems are strong. We will dig deeper to learn and understand someone or something. So we may not know when enough is enough and have the discipline to stop.

During this cycle, mental Mercury shifts into the sign of Scorpio on Nov 5. Mercury rules over how we communicate and process our thoughts. So we will have a lot more Scorpio energy to contend with, and our focus will be even more on all things Scorpio. We can have laser-like focus and concentrate better, so make sure you know when to take a break.

Scorpio energy is about rising from the ashes of what’s ended and even destroyed. Often in our lifetime, we have to endure everything around us breaking down and being destroyed to start over once again. This is Scorpio energy! You may have fallen somehow or felt like giving up, but you must rise from the ashes. It’s a time of rebirth and resurrection as we meet specific challenges.

Scorpio Season is for all Zodiac Signs, and this energy helps us learn and evolve. 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 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 December, we can have some plans in place since most of 2021 has been spent surviving, which is so exhausting. May the Scorpio energy highlighted by the Sun’s energy show you the way and help you get through your life’s journey.

October Full Moon

Rubys Astro Alert ๐ŸŒ• Octoberย Full Moon

For All Zodiac Signs ๐ŸŒŸ



The Full Moon occursย at 10:56 AM Eastern time on October 20th. And Mars conjuncts the Sun at this time, which can help us in some ways, but it also opposes the emotional Moon and tensely squares powerful Pluto. This energy is all rather intense, on top of an impulsive Full Moon in fiery Aries! So it’s important to pay attention and take a breath if you start to feel frustrated.

Full Moon’s our harbingers of truth, so if you’re looking for closure, you can actively release things during this Full Moon. It’s a good time to work on Setting Intentions, with the theme of letting go. You can ask the Universe questions through activities like journal-writing, meditations, or energy work. Just simply ask however you do it!

As I mentioned, the emotional Full Moon is squaring off with powerful Pluto, which creates some pretty intense energies. This energy can be an explosive time as our emotions have to be expressed one way or another under the Full Moon’s pressure, and add this transit, and we can feel extreme psychological pressure to be in control. It’s important to be willing to compromise to avoid conflict. Choose your battles wisely! Seriously! Which can turn into war-like energy, folks. Tempers can flare up, and rage can be an issue.

Don’t over-schedule yourself, as these transits produce mental pressure, on top of Mercury going direct from its Retrograde phase, which causes confusion. So you don’t need to add stress to these influences by pushing yourself even harder. It’s not a time for things like legal matters, negotiations, or important discussions. At least until this energy starts to break apart in a few days when the Full Moon loses its oomph, and its effects decrease. It’s a time to get away from challenges and stressful people, or you can have serious problems. Ego battles can occur, so avoid the mess.

The Sun, Mercury, and Mars are all in the sign of Libra, so many of you might be feeling somewhat dissatisfied or even disappointed in your current relationships. And with so many planets, especially mental Mercury screwing with our minds in Libra and Retrograde, relationships have been under the spotlight!

The shadow side of this particular Full Moon is strong, with darker Pluto hanging out. No wonder, so many of you have been ghosted, as people are leaving suddenly without any explanations, just poof, and nothing! There’s been a lot of lying and backstabbing going around. Unfortunately, these influences cause relationships to end abruptly, without little to no closure. Some of you have already been involved in a situation that made you feel victimized, which can be heart-wrenching. So pay attention to how you react to others.

With Mars and Mercury both in Libra, we’re dealing with major passive-aggressive behavior. Some folks aren’t stepping up and being honest about what they’re doing wrong, so they’re not taking responsibility for their actions and how they’re making their loved ones feel. Instead, they would rather avoid you entirely or the situation, so they can stay in denial and not deal with the confrontations.
But we must rise up like the story of the Phoenix and figure out how to deal with these situations independently.

There’s numerous ways to gain closure and clarity if you turn to your inner guidance or higher power and do some Setting Intentions healing energy work! Take it easy. Read over my media pages and stories on most Social Media outlets to learn more about how to Sett Intentions!

October New Moon 2021


October New Moon 2021

For All Zodiac Signs ๐ŸŒŸ

The New Moon peaks on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, in the Sign of Libra. Usually, it’s peaceful lighter feeling energy, but there are some seriously disruptive influences underway as well. This week can be challenging but a good time to go within and seek balance.

The Libra New Moon aligns with passionate Mars. So the spiritual meaning of the New Moon relates to energy, passion, and initiative, which can be useful. We’re feeling braver and aggressive, so we may need to take a step back. This energy demands we take action, so practice things like meditation or journal writing, but physical exercise of any kind will be more helpful. Try not to say or do things to provoke anger in others.

The October New Moon helps us balance our intimate relationships. And with the Moon conjunct Mars, we intend to create harmony and equality. The Moon is also quincunx independent thinking Uranus, meaning it’s a time to make adjustments, and not just mentally. This energy helps us shift our perspective and change our opinions and behaviors. It’s trying to show us there’s a better way to relate with others and ourselves.

The New Moon is a great time to meditate with the Cosmos and Set Intentions. But remember, last month, we connected to the New Moon during the Autumn Equinox, so whatever energies we set in motion at that time are now moving forward. It’s a bit of a roller-coaster ride, and overreacting to changes can cause problems. Stay flexible.

These tense energies also draw out our deeper personal desires, and this can result in anger. Debates can turn into arguments that erupt suddenly without little to no warning! With Venus (love & relationships) tensely connecting to Mars (passion & anger) and Pluto (transformation & rage) turning direct from Retrograde all at the same time, rage or violence can be the worst side effects. So please be extra careful about who you combat. Choose your battles wisely if you get the chance.


Challenges

The October New Moon also makes a difficult aspect to erratic Uranus, which can cause restlessness. There can be impatience, radical change, and rebellion. And with the Moon and fiery Mars connecting to other Stars that are associated with aggression and breakdowns, revenge, unfortunately, can be an issue.

The worst-case scenario is the potential for anger to turn into violence, as physical aggression can be a reality. And we can see protests, rebellion, attacks, and war-like behavior!
And other asteroids are aligning with this New Moon energy that leads to more unrest and Karmic situations. Any act of violence or revenge will lead to quick reactions and harsh judgments.

The New Moon will be an interesting one as it conjuncts Mars, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal, and its influence can give us the courage we need to go after our goals and get things done. However, the difficult part is its connection to Uranus.

It’s best to be aware and dig into activities that are more positive. You have an opportunity to transform these highly charged cosmic energies into something more productive and constructive, especially through physical activities. Using self-control and awareness, we can turn our raw primal desires into passion and romance with the Sun, Moon, and Mercury in the sign of Libra.

Pluto turns direct from Retrograde just hours after the New Moon peaks. Pluto is the planet of endings, rebirth, and transformation and is associated with reincarnation. This cycle has us following the call of our souls and exploring our deeper emotions. All the personal and shadow work we have done is worth it, especially if you discovered more of your inner power while Pluto has been Retrograde.

Also, Saturn, the planet of Karma, turns direct from its Retrograde cycle just four days after the New Moon on October 10. Retaliation may be swift and final, ending the cycle of violence, which is helpful. Old learned behaviors, habits, and beliefs can be let go of since we are looking for new ways to make progress. New Moon’s are always good for creating new beginnings. But this New Moon demands we be more cautious before jumping into something unknown. Baby steps!

The influence of the October New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the November New Moon. The best time for starting new projects is during the waxing phase of the Moon, from October 6 up to the October 20 Full Moon.

October Begins Astro Update ๐ŸŒŸ

Rubys Astro Readings
October Begins 2021 Update
๐ŸŽƒ For All Zodiac Signs ๐ŸŽƒ


In October, four of the planets that have been Retrograde for quite some time finally move forward. Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. And Mercury just started its Retrograde cycle, but it also ends at the end of October. This means we’ll slowly be able to start working on things again. It might take until the end of the month to see tangible results. But over the next few months, we will see intense movement, and finally, certain situations we’ve been stuck in will shift.

On October 1, Mars opposes Chiron while Mercury squares Pluto, and the Sun opposes Chiron on the 3rd. These influences create forceful energies that promote healing, but they can also be challenging. People can get easily upset and feel on edge and lose their cool fast! Feelings are going to get hurt. So if you see or feel things are about to get out of control, take a moment and walk away. You may feel like you want to argue or fight, especially if something seems unfair. Choose your battles wisely, my friends.

Luckily on October 3, Mercury Trines Jupiter. This brings in a more helpful energy where people and information can come in that helps us smooth things over. And we might need it after the first few days of October.

Pluto also moves forward this month. After five long months of being Retrograde, this shift restores hope, and things won’t seem so intense and personal. Agreements and negotiations can be made more easily. And more helpful people start to show up, and relationships that have been under pressure will feel a little better. But we must be careful about any commitments we make as Mercury Retrograde is still underway!

On October 4, Venus enters the sign of fiery Sagittarius. Our minds are open when it comes to our relationships and sexuality. Often boundaries are crossed in our intimate relationships and relations! Feeling extremely sexual, we can feel more flirtatious and open to experimenting with lovers and partners. Lust and love go hand in hand under these energies; we focus more on our desires and passions than usual. Also watch your money as Venus rules over our finances as well, we can spend impulsively and find retail therapy extremely therapeutic.

On October 6, the New moon in Libra occurs. It’s an important time to Set Intentions with the Universe. Ask the celestials to help you with your hopes, dreams, and desires! It’s a great time to focus your energies on partnerships and relationships. I will be posting a whole Blog on October’s New Moon next week.

October 8-10, the Sun, Mars, and Mercury are all in the sign of Libra. It can be easier to get along, we want to keep the peace, so we tend to be more kind and gentle. We’re more willing to compromise and work together with others. But deceptive behavior is still in the air strong, so pay attention!

๐ŸŒŸ October 11, Saturn turns direct from Retrograde. Then on Oct 18, Jupiter and Mercury move forward as well from their Retrograde cycles. Things will get easier than they’ve been, but don’t expect perfection. Here’s some helpful things you should have done and can still do with the Retrograde planets.

Pluto Retrograde
April 27 – October 6
Over these last seven months hopefully you’ve chosen to do some deep internal shadow work, and released some inner demons along the way. A lot of folks ended relationships, quit jobs, changed careers, and did some major clearing of spaces at home and work.

Saturn Retrograde
May 23 – October 11
Hopefully during this cycle you’ve made some changes in your life to make the energies flow more easily and feel less restricted. This was also a good time to work on letting go any old belief systems or worn out learned behaviors that no longer serve you.

Jupiter Retrograde
June 20 – October 18
During this cycle we should be making room for spiritual and internal growth. This was a time to replace those beliefs and behaviors with more authentic ways of living and practicing your spirituality. This is a time for a second chances. And for getting more in touch with what you really truly believe in your heart.

Neptune Retrograde
June 25- December 1
This cycle sends out clues and signs about how to connect strongly with your spirit. Secrets come out and we can see things for what they truly are. There also can be underlined health issues that crop up, so we can gain more insight and find better ways to fix and heal our spirit, mind, and body.

Chiron Retrograde
July 15 – December 19
This is a strong time for emotional healing, especially from past childhood traumas, and past life healing. Triggers tend to pop up that serve as reminders about your past emotional trauma, so you can recognize what the source of your pain comes from and heal it!

Uranus Retrograde
August 19 – January 18
This is a time when we can break free from what has held us back or has been restricting us. We can learn how to find our independence, by leaving bad situations that limit our growth and personal success personally and professionally.

Mercury Retrograde
September 27 – October 18
A time to rethink, reassess, and redo things we haven’t finished. It’s not a time to start anything brand new. It’s an opportunity to go back over things and make necessary changes. But it can be extremely annoying and cause technical snafus and glitches along the way, simply because we’re supposed to be unplugged from our highly plugged in lifestyles and listen to our inner guidance.

Last Mercury Retrograde of 2021

Rubys Astro Readings
Mercury Retrograde ๐Ÿ’ซ
Sept. 26 โ€“ Oct 18

For All Zodiac Signs ๐ŸŒŸ

The final Mercury Retrograde of 2021 begins on September 26 in the sign of Libra.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Mercury entered its Pre-Shadow phase on September 8, when it slows down to come to a stop, and then it appears to move backward during its actual Retrograde phase starting on the 26th.

Libra is a Cardinal Air sign, and Cardinal signs initiate. They can be dynamic energy, so we should be working on starting something. But it’s best to wait and plan things out until Mercury is done with its Retrograde cycle in October, or you might get taking back once or even twice over the coals to make things work. Honestly, it can be a big mess of misunderstandings and mistakes. But if you feel like you have to start something during Mercury’s Retro phase, then go for it! But take your time and be cautious.

Each new season of the year begins with Cardinal sign energy. So the Sun entered into the sign of Libra on September 22 and ushered in the Fall or Autumn Season, which is called the Autumn Equinox. This year the Equinox occurred right before Mercury entered its Retrograde cycle on September 26. So will be under a whole lot of Libra air energy throughout October.

Mercury in Retrograde takes us back to rethink, relearn, and re-assess our situations. And this often brings up memories from the past so that we can be quite emotional and scattered. Any pain or hurt feelings that has been suppressed or ignored may come back up! It’s important to acknowledge these feelings and work through the pain. Don’t be ashamed of your past. You’ve come a long way on your journey in life and have grown so much. The past experiences you experienced helped shape and form who you are now. So, even if they were painful, they were important lessons and should be honored. You are a powerful and wise person, so be proud of yourself!

As we prepare to move into this next phase of this Mercury in Retrograde, we can reflect and think about what we have learned. Ask yourself some important questions. Like what can you do better? What kind of life would make you more happy and free? What can you do to create a better life for yourself?

Mercury Retrograde turns our focus more inward on “self,” but in Libra, we are made to look at the people we have to choose to be in relationships with and why. Libra is an intellectual sign, and with both the Sun and Mercury under its influence, we tend to be social butterflies, so we like to mix and mingle and come out into the open again. But that’s because Libra energy is all about initiating new relationships.

It’s a time to socialize before winter comes and we are forced back indoors. This Libra energy loves connecting us to those who also seek harmony. It’s a good time to compromise and heal our relationships or find a way to walk away and let them go!

It’s a time of awakening as we have entered a New Era! Ask yourself who you want by your side? What kind of friends and partners do you want to share your life with? Libra is the psychologist of the Zodiac, and that energy can be helpful when learning how to listen and be more objective. This Libra influence helps us to be natural mediators and peacekeepers. So we’re invited to look at all sides of any given situation and work at creating balance.

The final Mercury Retrograde of 2021 would like us to take a moment to observe how we handle people in our friendships and relationships. All this Libra energy is about being fair and kind, which can help us get along and cooperate better. But we may appear fake and superficial, especially with the Sun in Libra until the 22 and Mercury in Retrograde in Libra starting up on the 26.

Rubys Astro Readings
September 22, 2021
“SUN ENTERS LIBRA” โ˜€


๐ŸŒŸFOR ALL ZODIAC SIGNS


Happy Libra Season! โ™Ž โ˜€
Happy Birthday To All My Beautiful Libra Souls. ๐ŸŽ‰

But this blog is for every Zodiac Sign, not just the Libra’s!

The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra, and transits there from September 22 through October 23.

This is the Autumnal Equinox in the world’s northern hemisphere, when we experience equal daylight hours as darkness. It is symbolic of our intuition as we slowly delve into our unconscious and pull out useful information. It’s a time of healing as we become more observant and learn how to compromise and accommodate others. The Universe will show us signs and messages that can guide us so we should pay attention.

As the Sun shifts into the sign of Libra, our core self and with Mercury also in Libra through November due to its upcoming Retrograde cycle our minds and beliefs are in sync. We’re in constant need of balance. These aspects turn our focus towards our relationships and bring in the energy of cooperation and equality in a very strong manner.

We all may feel more sharp, mindful, and aware during the Sun in Libra. There can be even more issues with unfair treatment, injustice, and systematic racism, which may directly result in taking a stand for others, especially if it’s about those we love. It’s easier to see all sides to most situations, so remember we can’t make everyone happy. Decision-making can be more challenging while the Sun is in Libra. As we overthink and analyze both sides of any situation, and sometimes we can’t stop ourselves. In Libra, the Sun is concerned about not rocking the boat and not rubbing others the wrong way. So we might start playing the role of peacemaker under this influence, so we can be quite diplomatic when dealing with problems or business matters. Which right now is very helpful considering everything we are dealing with in 2021.

We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously. But be careful when seeking out the approval of others. Sometimes, it may be difficult to know who’s telling the truth; follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness and Psychic-selves are strongest.

We can have an extra boost of intuition during Libra Season. It’s just natural to study other people’s behavior and body language, which can tell an awful lot about a person; go ahead and try it. It will make more sense during this time unless you already have strong Libra placements in your Astrology Birth Chart, then you already understand. Libra energy teaches all of us how to tap into our inner psychologist and this makes us more aware of what makes people tick, and how to connect better.



The Libra energy affects those with Libra Suns signs or Rising signs the strongest, but it affects all of us in one way or another. We can feel a jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks. As we feel more social and free. We can gain unique insight and be made more aware of how to balance our energies both emotionally and physically to achieve success.

During the Sun in Libra cycle, we strive to keep some balance and greater equilibrium. But our relationships become of great interest from September 22 through October 23.

However, life is not always peaceful with Libra in its attempt to restore balance. Especially, with Mercury about to go Retrograde (backward) in the sign of Libra. There can be struggles and challenges within our relationships with Venus (the planet of love) in the mysterious sign of Scorpio during this cycle. But the Scorpio energy will bring out the truth and expose the issues within our relationships, so they’ll be under the microscope and are about to get a big dose of reality! If you’re in a relationship that is totally broken down, breakups will happen. But if you are actively trying to work things, the Sun in Libra energy can help us smooth things out. But you have to work at it!

Keywords and topics that come up during The Sun in Libra are tactful, style, tolerance, and sociable. The shadow side of the Libra energy is we can be self-serving, indecisive, passive-aggressive, and superficial.

Happy Autumn Equinox

Rubys Astro Readings
Autumn Equinox
For All Zodiac Signs๐ŸŒŸ

September 22 marks the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox. We’re shifting into some different cosmic energies, so there’s nothing to fear. It’s already been another rough year! But this energetic shift can help ease some of the tensions and bring some calm into the mix.

This Equinox is the year’s turning point and is also when the Sun shifts into the balanced sign of Libra or what’s commonly called “Libra Season.”

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

As the Sun shifts into Libra on the Equinox, we finally get the opportunity to experience something new or different. This energy shift can help us focus on working on goals and plans, helping them meet their fullest potential.

The Cosmic energies we’ve been dealing with have been rather difficult, and Mother Nature is still involved in a massive cleansing process initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. Not to make light of the devastation, we must look at all sides of any situation while under the Libra influence. So even though the wildfires are destructive, there is one good thing that comes out of these tragedies, a light at the end of the dark tunnel, and that is the Wild Fires are also cleansing and clearing away old energies. New life will submerge over time from the ashes, and new beginnings will happen physically and energetically!

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

Starting September 22, the Cosmic energies slow down. As we enter this major shift, balance will finally start to happen. This influence gives us those moments where we can catch our breath and take a break from time to time. Our planet Earth has been going through a lot. Now is the time when the Universe starts its recovery process, and it may last longer than usual.

This shift serves as a reminder to deal with the things we’ve had to put off (probably due to the pandemic) or to get caught back up with the things we just couldn’t get done. The last quarter of 2021 will be a time to get caught up as much as you can, as there will be many planets coming in and out of Retrograde (backward).

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

Many of you are already feeling drained or exhausted from being locked down or restricted. But once you get on the right path, things will start to calm down. Our creativity is sparked during this time by this strong and potent energy shift. So take some time to reflect on what you have been doing this year, so you can create what you want to happen during the last part of 2021.

Set Intentions as you do with the Moon Phases. Write down your wishes, hopes, and dreams. As the past is behind us now, don’t look back; instead, focus on creating a bright and amazing future. Visualize your future (Pandemic Free), and see what you want to happen next in your life. It can be about anything, from personal finances to love. The trick is to feel it before it happens and to be grateful. In other words, see yourself happy and experiencing the things you desire with your heart and soul, so just feel it!

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

Full Moon! – September

Rubys Astro Readings
Sept Full Moon

For All Zodiac Signs๐ŸŒŸ

The Full Moon occurs in the sign of Pisces on September 20, 2021. This Full Moon brings lucky energy into our lives but also presents challenges.

It can be a lucky cycle for many, as Mercury Trines Jupiter at the same time as the Full Moon occurs. This Cosmic connection is powerful and often brings some random good luck. So the spiritual meaning of the September Full Moon brings some good fortune and often promotes optimism, generosity, and positive news! These influences can bring even more success as both planets Mercury and Jupiter align with other lucky stars as well, besides each other. Our instincts can strongly pick up on the positive energies in the air.

It’s a good time for planning future endeavors. It’s an exciting energy for socializing and chasing future goals. But take things slow as Mercury is almost Retrograde (backward), and avoid mishaps and accidents.

Alright, folks, you know I have to keep things real, so despite all the positive Cosmic influences this Full Moon is connecting to, it is an opposition between the Sun and Moon, and brings tensions and challenges as well.

Our emotions are right on the surface and need to come out in one way or another. Might I suggest writing down how you feel and practicing “Setting Intentions” with the Full Moon’s energy! You can start anytime over the weekend. Then you won’t feel like your going to explode and make a mistake by having a sudden outburst. You need to get those pent-up emotions out somehow, so do it in a healthy way.

The Full Moon is a harbinger of the truth, which can be uncomfortable, as it illuminates our home, family, and emotional relationships for up to a few weeks after it peaks. Its influence can have us torn between our home and work life, and what we need and want. Its energy can stir up inner tensions and brings external pressures, which may lead to conflict and chaos that can be emotionally draining. Practice controling your reactions during this Full Moon but remember you have to get them out somehow or you could explode.

Our minds are open and attitudes more progressive, so we can expand our horizons. This energy enables us to increase our knowledge and is helpful in activities connected to language, religious beliefs, philosophy, and life path discoveries. It’s a good time to set off on an adventure of your own and for long-distance traveling.

In love and relationships, this can be a good time to mix and mingle, and as making friends comes more naturally. We can run into the right people who want us to meet success at the right time, especially in business and partnerships. Even though Mercury is nearly Retrograde, this can be a good time for business dealings, negotiations, and making commitments. Just go over every little detail several times to avoid mistakes or misunderstandings.

Full Moons activate our intuition, and our sense of emotional awareness is heightened, which can help with challenges in our relationships. The Moon rules over the subconscious, so we’re often made suddenly aware of what is not balanced in our emotional relationships under its influence. But we can gain clarity about our issues, and discover the source of what’s been causing our tensions and hurtful feelings in our relationships. It can be a time for healing.

But there can be challenges between friends, lovers, and family, and sudden breakups can occur if we aren’t careful. It doesn’t mean everyone will experience challenges. Still, those already experiencing issues during the Full Moon can continue to see things break down, so it may be best to keep your space for a least a few days as issues can pop up quickly.

Many of us have insomnia during the week leading up to the Full Moon; this one is connected to some seriously excitable energies that can make us feel even more restless. Our dreams can be stronger and more vivid than usual with the Moon in Pisces, which is ruled by Neptune the ruler of our dream world. There can be strong meanings in our dreams that can be helpful in the future, so pay attention to signs and messages and write them down and try to interpret them.

โญRemember to write down how your feeling, and what you want to see happen during the Full Moon cycle. This is called Setting Intentions!

Cosmic Extras – also mental Mercury is busy squaring transformational Pluto, but its influence isn’t as strong as Mercury’s Trine to Jupiter. However, deeper thinking can cause very intense experiences with others. Arguments, debates, and ego battles can occur, but are just as easily avoided if you put on some charm!

Be mindful, it’s a Full Moon, and people tend to act out of character, feeling more emotional. It’s also a good influence for investigating and research, but don’t go all OCD about it, or you can go to the extreme! Do yourself a favor and avoid conspiracy theories! This aspect also can increase our power and influence over others, and help with spiritual and personal growth, create wealth, and make professional advancements possible.

Happy A Blessed Full Moon
Stay Safe & Be Well

Venus Enters Leo – Love is Grand!

Venus Enters Leo

Venus, the Goddess of Love, rules over Relationships, Love, and often Money enters the fixed “Fire” Sign of Leo starting on June 26 and runs through July 21.

Our love lives can be magnificent and grand during this cycle. There’s a stronger need for affection and physical connections. Holding down our inner fire or flames of love may be more difficult. It’s time to shine and show your inner light to those you care for and love.ย 

Venus in Leo boosts our love life, so we desire more excitement and playfulness in our relationships. Leo is the sign of self-expression, which is more evident in our love life and financial affairs.ย We want to be seen and heard as we’re more willing to express our feelings outwardly. We enjoy sharing our opinions more than usual.ย 

But trust and loyalty are more of an important factor with Leo energy involved. So if we care for someone we don’t trust, we might decide to shut down altogether under this cycle. Even though we can express our feelings more freely, we should pay attention to how we are treated by lovers, friends, and family members. Their actions can reveal a whole lot about how they feel.

We may feel more sensual and desirable, taking pride in our love lives now, and weโ€™re usually more helpful and generous with our hearts, resources, time, and money. While Venus is in Leo, we’re generally more warm-hearted, extravagant, and flirty. Love and relationships can be a game that never ends. We tend to think with our “Hearts,” so this energy keeps us in a constant romantic state in our relationships with people period.

However, we may act more demanding or aggressive with our lovers, wanting more affection, attention, devotion, and honesty. We may try to fulfill emotional needs with pleasurable affairs. A stronger desire for instant gratification can lead to intimate affairs with the wrong people. There can be unexpected or unwanted consequences.ย 

As passionate Mars connects to Venus during this cycle, keep yourself in check, they’re forming the “Cosmic Marriage” of the year. Together Venus and Mars, aka the “Cosmic Lovers,” ignite our passions and sex drive, enhancing the Venus in Leo energy.ย 

With Venus in Leo, our love language is expressed more so through our actions and the affections we share. We crave physical touch and strongly desire sexual activity. It can be more difficult to separate lust and sex from love at this time. However, this energy is quite romantic, so it’s a great time to spice up your life with some new romantic adventures with lovers or partners.ย 

Neptune, the Spiritual Guru of the Cosmos, recently turned Retrograde. This influence can amplify our emotions and cause self-doubt, which throws off our instincts and intuition. Neptune Retrograde casts a fog over our better judgment, which is unfortunate since Leo energy is very strong when it comes to following one’s instincts, but our senses and feelings may not be as accurate. Remember to keep this in mind before making any crazy moves like redoing your home or buying something because you think you’re getting a deal. Or when you decide to declare your undying love to someone new or old.ย Think about things first.

Luckily, Venus in regal Leo builds confidence to feel pride in our relationships and financial affairs. But we can be rather impulsive while looking for love and go after the wrong sort of person. Take your time and think before doing anything foolish with love or money, especially with foggy Neptune Retrograde. We can spend some cash, as retail therapy is quite appealing but that can backfire. We’re more attracted to flashy, expensive items. So be careful about overspending and don’t believe everything you are told or read.

Our desire for attention is strong during the Venus in Leo cycle, especially from our partners and lovers. We rather enjoy being admired, acknowledged, and validated during this cycle. Our ego is especially strong, so things like love, money, and pastimes needs to be more satisfying and pleasing. Desiring what’s grand and big can lead to more spontaneous and bold behavior. We want the best and we can brag and boost about who we are and what we are doing. We tend to have a flair for the dramatic during this cycle, simply for the attention, it brings.ย 

Focus on self-care during this cycle since we are craving to be loved and admired. Take some time to appreciate who you are, start up some self-care rituals, and put them into your daily routines. It’s a great cycle to treat yourself and do some sort of pampering. After all, we can feel like royalty. Practice daily rituals or activities like meditation (from the heart), positive affirmations, or journal-writing. Make little love notes or letters to yourself.

Try to work on building up your self-confidence and knowing you are loved and are worthy of love. Don’t mistakenly rely on someone else to fill the void within yourself just to be validated. Rather fill yourself up with love and compliments, and support your friends and tribe.ย Treat yourself to some small gifts. It’s ok! You’re worth it. Just don’t break the bank! While Venus is in Leo, we enjoy showing off, so we shower the people we love with attention and gifts. But it’s emotionally satisfying to spoil our lovers and partners.ย 

This energy can be quite powerful, so Venus transiting Leo encourages us to love ourselves and others more deeply, with passion and affection. Because we want the best for ourselves, we may not stop until we get it. So it’s a good time to set boundaries, but our expectations can be set to a higher standard when it comes to love and relationships, as Leo’s energy won’t settle for anything less than someone fabulous and heartfelt.

Enjoy this time.ย

Setting Intentions with the Full Moon

https://rubysreadings.wordpress.com/2020/10/01/setting-intentions-with-the-full-moon-5/

Summer Solstice

Rubys Astro Readings
Summer Solstice & Cancer (Zodiac) Season ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒ•

For All Zodiac Signs ๐ŸŒŸ

The Sun shifts into the sign of Cancer, aka Cancer Season, and the Summer Solstice occurs in the North on June 20, 2021, when the days and nights are equal in length in light and dark.

When the Summer Solstice arrives, the Sun is in the protective and sensitive sign of Cancer; the energies tend to slow down a bit. Nevertheless, the Solstices are important because they open energetic doorways and usher in the magic of the Summer Season. These special days allow us to manifest what we want in our lives. The Sun will remain in Cancer until July 22, 2021.

While the Sun’s in Cancer over the next month, we are more focused on our family and home life. The day’s light begins to grow longer, which helps us make memories, which is right Cancers alley. This influence keeps us close to home as we have a stronger need for security with anything related to home or family.

Since we are technically still in Eclipse Season through the end of June, this Full Moon will land under its influence. Eclipses tend to bring out the truth and so do Full Moon’s, so what’s been hidden, repressed, kept secret, or unknown can be revealed. So if you have any skeletons in your closet, you may want to get things out in the open and deal with whatever reactions are coming your way.

It’s also a good time for teamwork, even with the Sun in more private Cancer. If our expectations are unreliable or unrealistic, then we probably will be let down. Try to work at keeping yourself grounded and your thoughts rooted strongly in reality. It’s for the best during this time, especially since we’re under the after shadow period of Mercury in Retrograde, as we wait for Mercury to get back up to its normal pace as it heads in the right direction again. But this alone causes confusion and can make things that much more challenging to navigate through.

The Cancer energies can make us feel sensitive and emotional. Cancer energy also teaches us to be more ambitious like the other Cardinal signs in the Zodiac (Aries, Capricorn, & Libra). Therefore, we’re usually
more tenacious about reaching our business and professional goals. It’s important to take care of our social obligations, as activities outside our home will be more successful when we learn how to create a solid family and home base to fall back on. This influence helps us keep our schedules and routines, our home life in perspective.

With the Sun in Cancer, our thoughts naturally turn inward. It’s a great time to reach out to loved ones that feel safe and perhaps plan a very low-key get-together, or maybe finish up any home projects you’ve needed to get done. We are looking for safety and protection, so we want to surround ourselves with what’s secure and familiar. It’s a great time to celebrate the gift of seeing each other again face to face, now that Covid is down in the US. But still, remain safe and cautious.

The shadow side of the Sun in Cancer Season is that the Moon actually rules the sign of Cancer. So we can become a bit lunatic-like under its influence, especially if we’re worn down, emotionally hurt, lonely, or overwhelmed. Our moods can go up and down rather quickly, and we can become moodier with the waxing and waning of the Moon and all her phases for the next month. Monitor the Moon Phases and how they affect you by following my blogs on social media.

Our everyday lives are experienced on a much deeper emotional level with the Sun in Cancer (no matter your Sun sign). We tend to worry about our emotional security and are naturally more concerned with our personal lives. Even if we are interested in what’s happening globally, we want to protect and nurture those close to home more so than usual. So nurturing and taking care of our loved ones and our pet projects becomes more important.

Cancer is the Mother of the Zodiac and a water sign, so this energy affects us emotionally. Things like coziness, closeness, emotional bonding, and sexuality are experienced with more depth at this time. This energy can be quite evident in our everyday lives! We can be more kind, compassionate, caring, and empathic to other’s needs.

But the dark side of this Cancer energy means we can also be more reactive and impulsive when it comes to our emotional connections with people and situations.

Also, with the Sun in Cancer, the general atmosphere is more emotional, so any other Cosmic connections between the Sun and Moon can be extremely intense. But our initial reaction is to take the road less traveled. We will do whatever it takes not to be exposed because we tend to feel more vulnerable, including sidestepping direct confrontation, unless, of course, we are doing the confronting.

If we lose control, we can get a little crazy. Cancer energy, when angered, can be quite over the top and scary because it’s pure raw emotion. This charged-up emotional energy tends to trigger some of our most tender spots, so we can become illogical if we get frustrated or feel picked on. It’s just best not to let ourselves go there, and our emotions take the wheel for the next month. It can prove difficult to be objective or open-minded during this time, as we can be a bit pessimistic in our thinking, especially with Mercury in Retrograde. It’s helpful to keep your thoughts more positive, but you may have to work at it a little more than usual.

We are tapped into the realm of Cancer for the next month. We often feel more powerful when using our emotions with people or experiences, which gives these connections more depth and meaning. Usually, what we do during this time comes from the heart. It’s good practice for us to learn from anyway. Work on being more kind and compassionate while the Sun is in Cancer.

Cook some soul food and find something sweet to eat. Cuddle up with someone you care for, enjoy your Summer, and Happy Birthday, all my beautiful Crabs, Cancers! And happy Summer Solstice!
