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!
“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
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

“A Time For Healing”
Venus is love … and Chiron is our emotional wounds, they form a opportune aspect this week that influences the way we heal our emotional wounds, especially around relationships and with our self-worth. Some of us may lose control due to other astrological influences happening now, but it’s a good time to kiss and makeup in this energy. Even though most will experience this through their discussions and even arguments with a loving partner.
This aspect wants to help you heal your deeper fears of not being “good enough” or feeling not “worthy.” Healing can only happen when we are open to forgiving ourselves and others. Be compassionate, understanding and kind with others. Old emotional wounds can rise to the surface now, but these conversations don’t have to be negative or scary, some of you will feel almost liberated for getting some issues off your chest. If you feel like these issues are coming up for a reason, then you’re probably right. Pay attention to how they’re making you FEEL! Your emotions are trying to tell you that you’re reliving an old emotional wound, despite the fact that it’s probably with someone different or in a completely different situation. The point is the emotions you’re feeling can now be let go of and healed. Ask yourself, how do these feelings remind me of an old emotional wound I went through in the past?
If this makes sense then you’re already on your way to healing. So move forward and don’t get caught up in drama, remember we’re not here for too terribly long, forgive and forget, and then heal those past experiences that wounded you in the first place.
Tuesday – ‘You can heal yourself”
Once again lovely Venus is involved in an aspect (and has she been a busy lady), this time with the ‘Wounded Healer’ Chiron. This aspect can sort of have a numbing effect and turn our intimate feelings off.
This energy is about moving past the emotional old wounds and injuries we’ve had in relationships, and with our finances. Have you worked on your relationship with money? I think it’s a very interesting place to explore, and this aspect gives us a chance to do so.
It’s important to be kind to yourself and others, we’re all feeling a little wounded now. Make sure and listen to your partners or friends point of view about your relationships … it might just change your perspective. This is a good time to learn from one another, because our insecurities are bigger then usual, especially with Chiron involved. There is always healing work to do with Chiron, and it’s a good time to learn about what really bothers us emotionally. Remember, we all have flaws, and that perfection is just an illusion.
If you’re feeling badly, make sure and pay attention to where those feelings are coming from. Allow those emotional wounds to be researched, our feelings are just energy that’s been experienced!
If we resist the process of healing, our emotional pain will stay and can then manifest physical illness. Allow yourself to heal by working through it, and have faith in your healing. ~Ruby
