July Monthly Horoscope ~ Eclipse Season

July Monthly Horoscope ~ Eclipse Season
by Ruby

July of 2018 is going to be a month full of surprises, where the second half of 2018’s Eclipses will start to come together, these life-changing cycles arrive July 12 and July 27. So the pace won’t be as slow as it has been (thank goodness), but we are in the middle of Retrograde High Season with five Planets in the Cosmos including Chiron the “Wounded Healer” all in their Retrograde cycles. Throughout July, these planets will be making their backward reversals, and at the end of the month, mental Mercury jumps on the bandwagon also going Retrograde on the 25th. Even though we are ready to move forward, July is once again a time to slow down, retrace your steps and handle any left behind or unfinished business. All month long, energizer Mars, structured Saturn, dreamy Neptune, and transformational Pluto are moving in reverse, which puts our energy and motivation levels down into low gear. And did I mention Chiron the wounded healer as well, yep also Retrograde, to bring up and out all those deep-seated emotional wounds, this can trigger you to relieve some sort of painful experience from your past or at least FEEL the way you did during something that was traumatic or painful, but it’s meant to come up to work through and heal.

Venus the planet that rules over love lives, relationships, and often money enters the sign of Virgo on July 9th, this is a time when we express how we love through practical manners and gestures. So instead of sharing how we are feeling emotionally with the object of our affection, we tend to show our feelings through the actions we take by doing things that make our partners and loved ones happy and feel taken care of. Expect the ones you love to show you how they care for you in the little things they do such as running errands, doing some kind of detailed work, or just making sure they’re around to support you. Under Venus in Virgo love has to make some sort of sense and have a purpose. It’s all about being practical under this influence.

Jupiter is now at a standstill because it will come out of its Retrograde cycle on July 10th, and will continue to move forward in the sign of Scorpio. Our bigger plans could get moving a bit more at this point, we should use this influence to tap into our higher-self to find a space of wealth and spiritual power for the good of all. The shadow side of this cycle is we can become more greedy and lustful looking for wealth and power, which can lead to some folks taking advantage of others. Things like abuse, misuse, ill-treatment & unfair treatment, and oppression will be some of the negative sides of this influence, especially with Jupiter being the sign of the detective of the Zodiac! We can uncover some seriously disturbing truths during this time, so if you have done something wrong you might want to find a way to fix it or the truth will be shown, especially around the time when the Full Moon occurs.

Eclipse Season begins on July 12th, when a New Moon – Partial Solar Eclipse occurs in the sensitive sign of Cancer. This can cause a crisis in your self-esteem, and in your relationships or around an event. The Solar Eclipse is opposing powerful Pluto which is about making a transformation to help better yourself. To evolve your soul so you can live a better experience that’s more satisfying in this life. This transformational energy will be common in our close relationships, so with a close family member, friend, or partner.

Leo Season begins on July 22nd, this is when the Sun moves into the sign of Leo. During this time we will see some folks show their asses plain and simple, with ego trips and battles, but hopefully, it is also going to be a time when people express themselves from the heart in a more authentic way! This influence can help us feel more optimistic and confident, so we can make important contacts and strengthen bonds with our current tribe of folks we care for.

With mental Mercury, the planet of communication turning Retrograde in the sign of Leo from July 25th till August 18th, the drama is going to be quite strong! Mercury also rules over technology and travel, so you already know if you follow my blog posts, Mercury in Retrograde is a very confusing time where we see technical glitches and malfunctions occur all over the place. People tend to get confused easily and forget what they are talking about, so be patient with yourself and others, and if you travel expect delays!

The Full Moon comes together on July 27th, and will be in the sign of intellectual Aquarius and a Total Lunar Eclipse!
A Lunar Eclipse is a perfectly aligned “Supercharged” Full Moon! When the Earth’s shadow falls between the Sun and the Moon, this is typically the brightest lunation of the month, but it will be shadowed by darkness due to the Eclipse. As the lights go out, our shadows, secrets, and repressed feelings that might have seemed too big or scary to get our attention and expression come alive. Changes that have been occurring sort of behind the scenes and deep within ourselves are brought up and out to deal with first hand, and we can see significant changes and completions.

This Eclipse is highly influenced by Mars now in its Retrograde cycle. This turns this Full Moon into a highly emotionally charged Eclipse. Mars is the planet that rules over our passion, drive, and anger, so it is certainly a time to be cautious as this influence can easily cause reckless actions to be taken, because of another harsh aspect Mars is making to the planet of changes, Uranus during the Full Moon time things can get pretty wild folks! This will also be a strong turning point within the Mars Retrograde cycle and for all of us in one way or another. It is a time to be extremely vigilant and grounded. Think before reacting, think before speaking, don’t let your fuse get lit, because once it does it’s all over with.

Overall, July of 2018 will certainly not be a boring month, so we should take notes around what we want to accomplish but also move cautiously and slowly, as big changes are coming in, but if we pay attention and understand how the planets are influencing our lives, we can better navigate this time and hopefully make it a month to remember for the more positive outcomes. I am aware some of this sounds super scary but remember a few things if you come from your heart in all you do, then you will do much better. And some of these stronger influences just won’t be as harsh to deal with. Learn how to observe life and not always react, this will change the game completely for you!

Have a safe and happy July.

ASTRO NEWS
By Ruby

It’s been a busy week on the Astrological front with the Cosmos making some pretty big shifts!

There’s been a lot of chaos over this last week, and this Sunday another planet is about to make a major move. Pluto, will start moving backward just like Saturn and Jupiter and into its Retrograde cycle.

By this summer there will be 8 planets in Retrograde, and that’s a whole lot of energy moving backward, so our lives really will slow down!

This Pluto Retrograde cycle gives us a chance to look back over the past four months, to look over our past accomplishments, and our failures as well. There’s a whole lot of revising and reassessing going on, and some of you are starting to feel blocked or restricted. The planet Pluto represents things like transformation, power struggles, and evolution. Over the next few months is a good time to think about what you’d like to let go of and release from your life, your mind, and your heart. Then you can do something with what you’ve learned once Pluto and Saturn move forward again from their Retrograde cycles in September.

Is there a bad habit you can’t quit or are you stuck in a job you can’t stand? Maybe you want out of a toxic situation or relationship. Pluto Retrograde shows you what you need to release and let go of.

~Sunday will be especially intense with Saturn, Pluto, and Mars all in the sign of Capricorn. But the whole weekend may be a bit much to handle.

The best way to describe how Pluto Retrograde affects you is to understand your personal relationship with your own power, or the power that resides inside you! This is a time where you can explore your Soul and recognize what you have control over, and especially what you don’t.

Over the next four months you can learn how to not resist or completely let go of what you can’t control, and surrender. Try not to fight it! If you happen to be in a one-sided relationship and the other person is not showing you by the actions they’re taking that they really want to be with you, then it’s time to let it go! And if you’ve been on a certain path for some period of time and trying to accomplish something and it’s not happening, let it go! The Pluto Retrograde cycle between now and September can help you see if you are on the right path or not. Just pay attention to the blocks your up against or if things are falling into place. The Universe will give you clear signs and messages.

The good thing is a few days ago the Sun moved into the sign of Taurus, and you’ll like this energy much better than the past several weeks. It will be a calmer and hopefully peaceful energy.

On Sunday Pluto begins its Retrograde cycle until late September. It’s a time to begin a very personal self-analysis.

On Monday Mars makes a nice connection to Jupiter which can make us feel excited and inspired to do something new.

April 24th the planet Venus will move into the sign of Gemini. The Gemini Sun folks might really enjoy this three-week cycle. While the rest of us can have a really good time.

Venus makes a challenging connection to Wounded Chiron, and our relationships can be painful, so it’s time to have a chat perhaps and begin some deeper healing this week.

Pay attention on April 25-27, when Mars makes a strong conjunction. This will be a strong time for arguments, power struggles, and even fights. Watch for others who like to cause drama and for those who tend to already be unhinged or hot-headed. It’s all about how you choose to react!

New Moon in Aries

New Moon in Aries
April 15, 2018
wp-1458575933886.jpg

On Sunday evening, April 15th the New Moon occurs in the Sign of Aries!

This means you have an opportunity to tap into your creative and courageous side, so take some time starting now to write your Intentions or Wishes down during this New Moon, and see what it is exactly that ignites the fire inside you! This will help you move forward in life. This is a time of inspiration, so you should be focused on what you’d like to create next in your life so you can make your dreams a reality!

New Moon’s are a time of opportunity, and when something new can begin.

This particular New Moon is in fiery Aries, so it is quite strong and potent. This is actually the first New Moon of the “Astrological” New Year, which started on March 20 during the Spring Equinox.

Uranus the messenger and this New Moon both in Aries, make a connection that certainly can liven things up!

Our freedom and sense of independence become more important than usual. Certain generations are being affected quite strongly by the planet of revolution and freedom, Uranus already! This is why there’s such a strong resistance movement underway. And therefore some of you have already been experiencing a surge of energy, that’s pushing you to get out there and fight for certain causes no matter the cost. You need your freedom and space to do things your way!

During this New Moon, some folks can get quite a wake-up call!

This is a sudden awareness about your true calling, destiny, or higher purpose in life. Therefore it can bring in some challenges, but this can help you move past your fears and insecurities, so you’ll take a risk, a leap of faith perhaps, and go after what it is you truly want or desire! The Uranian influence surrounding this New Moon makes it much easier to surrender the ego-driven part of ourselves that doesn’t allow us to just flow with unexpected events so this can help us learn how to change. This particular New Moon is trying to teach us how to be excited about our path in life, and how to follow our passion and trust the Universe enough to let go of any control we think we have and surrender.

The Sun in Aries this month helps strengthen our willpower and desire.

The sign of Aries is part of each and every one of us, (all the Signs of the Zodiac are actually in our Astrology Birth Charts). Aries energy is known for being a Trailblazer that creates a spark. This is a gift from the Cosmos that helps stir up our passions, which creates the fire inside us to move forward and manifest something hopefully new and exciting! If we learn how to handle this New Moon energy with respect and make more positive changes, hopefully, we’ll experience some major transformations.

Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Aries currently, and it goes Direct from being Retrograde on the same day as the New Moon!

Hooray! This is a sign that we can get moving forward again in some area of our life. Since March 22nd (and even back in February during the shadow Retrograde phase), we have been slowed down! As annoying as Mercury in Retrograde can be, it has been trying to help us reconnect with our deepest desires, as it’s brought up the past to learn from through both people and situations. Mercury wants us to unplug from the world and reconnect with ourselves, so we can come out of it renewed and refreshed, but it is challenging living in the time of technology and information. There’s an opportunity to move forward now since we have a new perspective as mental Mercury stations or comes to a stop to move forward and out of Retrograde!

Also, Mercury is meeting up with Chiron the Wounded Healer, which is in its last degree of Pisces.

Chiron is about to shift signs and move into the sign of Aries for the first time in 49 yrs on April 17th! With Chiron in Aries, we take an on our emotional wounds like Warriors, and are no longer going to be in the mood to feel victimized or held down by our pain! This new Chiron energy coming in can help us move away from our trauma like never before. So get ready folks it’s time to heal in a big way!

The sign of Aries is ruled by passionate Mars!

This reminds us to work on ourselves by doing something brave that helps us to be more true to who we are as individuals. Mars is currently in the sign of Capricorn, which helps us to be more focused, disciplined, and willing to use the Aries fire so we can move forward in the right direction and therefore be more productive.

There’s a very strong Saturn influence hanging over this New Moon as well.

Saturn’s influence helps us to be less impatient and impulsive and work on being more strategic and work on long-term planning. On the other side of these energies, we don’t want to let our fears or insecurities stop us from being brave enough to take action. So to make this a successful New Moon we should blend the Aries and Capricorn energies together by taking strategic risks, putting in the time to do the work, and trusting the process the Universe puts us through, no matter what that looks like.

St Patrick’s Day New Moon

Standard

March NEW MOON
by Rubys Readings

The NEW MOON will occur early Saturday morning in the sign of Pisces. This energy affects each and every one of us in one way or another no matter what Zodiac Sign you are.

This NEW MOON gives us an opportunity to start something new and fresh, as it’s time to start new endeavors.

This is the time to follow the traits of the sign that the New Moon comes together in, and since this NEW MOON will be in the sign of the Fish, Pisces! Therefore we should be working on tolerance and judgment of others, and letting go of worry about people’s imperfections, that includes our own with ourselves.

Allow yourself to take a risk, but make sure it’s a thought out one, or maybe start something that requires you to use your imagination or visualization skills, and also be aware consciously of making time to enjoy spiritual activities that help you to zen out a bit and rejuvenate yourself. This is a great time to share your deep desires and dreams with someone you trust.

Under this very strong Pisces energy, we have the chance to make some pretty important changes to our lives, as we might feel inspired under this NEW MOON and feel motivated enough to take some major leaps of faith!

The NEW MOON this weekend is making a strong connection to wounded healer, CHIRON!

This can put us in touch with our souls potential to help us heal our greatest wounds! This energy is strong and quite potent, so if you’re doing anything spiritual or some kind of energy work it can be quite successful at this time. So you may just have a breakthrough this weekend, because this is a very potent time for changes. You might see things from a different perspective now, and this helps us move away from old learned behaviors and patterns that no longer serve us in our life. So set boundaries now, release old habits and more. Use this NEW MOON and CHIRON’S healing energy to help you make a big difference in your life.

Pay Attention Folks!!!

Even though this NEW MOON is a compassionate one, it’s also making a tense square to impatient MARS, and this affects all of us no matter what your Zodiac Sign may be!

We must check ourselves for feeling impatient, and for making sudden impulsive moves. It can get rowdy out there folks! People are also a tad bit confused about how they are feeling, especially around how they are thinking with mental MERCURY and VENUS both in MARS-ruled Aries!

MARS is on the Cusp of Changing Signs today also, so this mean we can feel extremely vulnerable, aggressive, and even volatile! So if you notice someone getting heated-up or frustrated it’s just for the best that you walk away and deal with them another time, or maybe not at all! Our words can cut like a knife, and people are feeling sensitive already, so they can offend each other much more easily. This all can cause us to make some major changes in our lives that help us start some sort of New Beginning!

The SUN and MOON are also forming a somewhat nice connection to thought provoking URANUS, this means we might struggle with our independence, but also may not be to sure about walking away from a commitment.

The MOON will be in Aries by 2 PM CST, 3 PM EDT time on Saturday, so again if you are one who wants to work with the energies of the MOON and SET INTENTIONS, your best bet is before these times. For those who are well seasoned at doing this kind of work, the MOON will technically go into the VOID on Saturday morning around 8 AM CST, and 9 AM EST times.

Halloween Forecast

Halloween Forecast

db463c8a9e1e4dc2f9fa73895b73fee4

This Halloween the cosmos is practically underwater with so many planets in water signs! Water symbolizes and influences our emotional state and how we feel. The Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury are all in the deepest feeling water sign, Scorpio currently, which is the regeneration sign of the Zodiac. This sign represents life, death, & rebirth. So these kind of issues are coming up in many people’s lives right now and will continue throughout the month.

All this intense Scorpio energy at any time (not just during Halloween) can bring up a soulful deeply psychological conversation, and studies, metaphysical and occult studies, and highlights the truth if you haven’t already noticed with the currently #metoo movement exploding and the JFK files being released!

Halloween is related to many different holidays like the “Day of the Dead”, “All Saints Day”, “Samhain” and “All Hallows Eve”, all of these special occasions mark and commemorate our dearly departed. And with so many planets currently in Scorpio, which is the sign that represents all things Halloween. It sure to be the perfect cosmic vibe to set the tone for a most spooky, paranormal kind of Halloween.

Also, the Moon in will be in watery Pisces and is hanging close to the wounded healer, Chiron around Halloween, which brings in even more supernatural activity, but also it’s a good time for healing and strong psychic abilities. This enchanted energy enhances our intuition and Psychic Abilities, (a great time to get a Reading with me.) as our senses and intuitive gifts are on point!

Therefore, we can feel quite emotional as emotions run very high and we can catch some serious ‘feels’ during this time, as our reactions are more based on feelings rather than logic. This is a time when we can be sappy and sentimental, as our thoughts take us back to memories of folks from our past. There’s a strong psychic connection to others during this time, so empaths and sensitives will really be feeling this energy, as the veils between this world and other realms are extremely thin if even existent.

This is a time when there are many different kinds of celebrations to honor our ancestors. But this is also a time when the season of fall/autumn moves into the season of winter. When all things in the Northern Hemisphere must end or die off to be reborn again, and this represents our lives in subtle and sometimes not so subtle ways! We should not be at all afraid of endings and in letting go. Beginnings and endings go hand in hand. They always go together. Don’t get stuck around the “What if’s“ and be afraid. Endings are a natural part of life, and we should not fear them because they represent the beginning of something new.

One thing is for sure the Astrological energy for Halloween will certainly be very ethereal and foggy feeling. So stay safe and have a magical Halloween!

Crisis of Faith

Standard

Astro Update
By Ruby
Crisis of Faith

Adventurous Jupiter is opposing Chiron the wounded healer today in a long-term influence that actually first came together back last November, and will meet again in August. This influence can have us questioning our core beliefs, and we can end up having some sort of crisis of faith. We might end up changing our beliefs just even a little by the time this transit is completely done, but that’s the whole point.

There’s a journey ahead of you now, if you accept the challenge to think about and work with the real meaning and understanding you have around your faith and beliefs. But you can get in your own way with old outdated beliefs that are no longer working for you. Following those old philosophies you’ve always had may not make so much sense anymore. Those beliefs you were raised with aren’t serving the grown version of yourself. Remember you are your own person and can believe in whatever you want! Some might struggle with this due to fears around unrealistic consequences, for not following the old belief systems they were taught. This can put you at a standstill around your beliefs now.

You can be easily led by certain beliefs and ideas now, this means watch out for anyone spouting off about religion, philosophy, or spirituality. You could get taken in by someone who is false, but portrays themselves much differently. This can cause confusion – around what you know to be true in your heart! While someone might be trying to manipulate you into believing that their path or ways are best. Open your eyes, be clear and honest with yourself.

You may become isolated in your feelings, and alone in your opinions, visions, and plans for the future, because other people just don’t seem to understand your visions or way of thinking, and what they mean or represent. The choices you’ve made in the past don’t feel so right anymore, and it’s important now more then ever to look within your own heart and come to a greater understanding about what you truly need and believe in…rather then just blindly following something or someone that truly isn’t going to make you happy or serve any purpose in your life.

If you’re looking at taking a new business venture, it’s best to take a step back and get a closer look first. Certain projects might have come to a close now in your personal or professional life, and you may notice you are feeling restless because you’re not used to doing life without this issue or problem. Let it go, it’s over now, don’t go back to it or try and bring it back now.

Certain challenges also may arise in our relationships, due to a difference in opinion around our beliefs. This energy can be so confusing when it comes to following our beliefs, remember if you’re not sure how you feel, close your eyes, breathe deeply and seriously, Listen to your Heart! It’s best to take some time to sort out how you’re feeling first, before making up your mind about what you do believe. Wait until you feel more confident again before you do anything too drastic, like joining a new spiritual group or church.

Our relationships can suffer from this energy due to a difference in opinions. Tread lightly with your friends or lovers for now, don’t try to push your beliefs off on them and let eveyone come to their own conclusions. Because not until August will you have all the information you need to really understand what your beliefs are all about. At least remain curious and keep your heart and mind open to the possibilities. ~Ruby #rubysreadings

The New Moons Alignments

Astro Alert ⚠
Powerful New Moon Alignments

Here’s a little more about how the Cosmos is lining up around the New Moon in Leo this weekend.

Venus the planet that rules love and relationships and often money is in Retrograde. This energy may have brought back old friendships and relationships to you, over the last few weeks, in one way or another. We should be reviewing our relationships and finances. It also can help us take a closer look at what’s blocking us from being truly happy…in this moment. Venus is in Leo and Retrograde, so we have permission from the Cosmos to enjoy our life and our relationships, and our unique relationship with money. It’s a good time to reflect, take breaks from life to have fun and play after every worked hard! Enjoy your life and seek out pleasurable activities. Visualize what you’ve always wanted to do with your life and who you’ve always wanted to be in this New Moon energy.

Chiron stirs up our emotional wounds to be healed, and is involved in a somewhat challenging connection to this month’s New Moon. We must work on making changes within ourselves, and take some time to rest, heal and play. Work on opening your heart and loving yourself, others, and your life. Try to grasp that the Universe is with you, and understands, and that you’re always loved and forgiven.

Uranus the great Awakener is in fiery Aries, and is in a harmonious aspect to the New Moon and Venus. This aspect is helping us see the truth about ourselves, by sending us Ah-Ha moments and visions. Visualize your ideal world during this time! Not perfect but ideal! Look for messages the Universe is tying to send, we must pay attention,

Mercury the messenger in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at the time of the New Moon. This helps us to feel empowered by our words and in the conversations we have, with ourselves and others both. This is especially true around our health, as we should be now working on changing our daily routines and leaning how to be in service to others. ~Ruby
