Eclipse

November Astro Forecast


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. ūüėČ


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. 

Have a good November, and many blessings.

Stay Safe & Be Well

“Time To Take A Look Within”- August 2018 Forecast

August 2018 Forecast
by Ruby

August of 2018 is starting out on an interesting note being smack in the middle of Eclipse Season. The two July Eclipses are behind us now, but there is a third Eclipse – New Moon on August 11 that can change our plans a bit. The atmosphere is still highly charged up by the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27. I will have much more on this later.

But on August 2 we’re dealing with Mars Squaring Uranus! This Square is super powerful and it’s the second one in a series of three, therefore this energy will continue to play out through the end of September. Mars is Retrograde, which causes more frustrations than usual. And with Mars being so close to the planet Earth right now, it’s actually closer than its been in years, so its influence is increased on our lives. This has already brought a lot of fiery energy into our lives, and some folks may feel like they are at a fever pitch! But before you lose your cool, there is a beautiful Trine forming between Jupiter and Neptune that can help us let go of any anger or resentments we have.

Our minds are quite focused on expressing ourselves more directly and effectively, with Mercury in Retrograde in the sign of Leo, as we look for attention from others. Under this influence, worrying is definitely boring, because our focus in on enjoying life, need I remind you Mercury is Retrograde, and this means we may be worrying as well, especially about our children and relationships. While Mars Squares Uranus the first past of August, you should be extra careful about acting impulsive. Soon after, there’s a Trine connection between Saturn and surprising Uranus, which makes this an ideal time to make some positive changes in our lives. Check yourself and stay focused, as you slowly work towards your long-term goals. This influence can help keep your mind distracted long enough so you may be calm and even patient, then you can plan out things accordingly.

With so many planets moving backward during the month of August, it certainly can be exhausting and intense feeling at times. There’s Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto all Retrograde now, along with Chiron, and soon Uranus will be in Retrograde on August 7. This High Retrograde Season means we are more vulnerable and in a subjective place, as ideas are just being developed. But it can be difficult to be patient with the Sun in Leo pushing us to get into the spotlight!

There’s a partial Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th that will be visible in Northern Europe and North Eastern Asia. This is the third and final Eclipse of this Eclipse season! The Solar Eclipse will mainly be influenced by a connection being made to Mercury while in Retrograde, the main themes will be around thinking, worrying, self-expression, contemplation, discussions, and debates. Watch what you are expressing and verbalizing during that time.

This New Moon Eclipse in the Sign of Leo on August 11th is conjunct or connecting to the asteroid “Pallas-Athena”, and the planet of ideas and communication, Mercury, which is making a tense Square to Jupiter in Scorpio, she is the speaker of our highest and deepest truth! Pallas-Athena is a warrior goddess and can help us find more peaceful ways to resolve disputes due to her feminine wisdom and ability to see overreaching patterns. Currently, her vision is effectively stronger than Jupiter‚Äôs, which is in the sign of Scorpio, so this influence has kept our perspective more closed off than usual.

Back on July 25th Mercury went into Retrograde, and on August 18 Mercury will be out of its Retrograde cycle officially, but we still may have to deal with the AFTER Shadow period for about two weeks, so through the first week of September. This is going to open up many doors of opportunity because now we can sign those contracts and start new jobs, and maybe fall in love with whomever we want, at least until Venus goes Retrograde in October, yea I know lol, but life will get moving once again at the end of August.

There is also a beautiful water Trine between Jupiter and Neptune on August 19th, this will be the third and final meeting in this series. The aspect has helped us find more positive perspectives during a very difficult time with all the planets in Retrograde, it’s promoted spiritual growth and will continue to do so through the end of September, as it allows us to release the past.

The Sun enters the earthy sign of Virgo on the 23rd. This helps us to get more grounded and stable as we prepare for the Full Moon. The Sun in Virgo brings in a more sensible way of thinking, as we are more hands-on, you can greatly benefit over the next month once this starts by living simply and being more practical. The Sun in Virgo will also be harmonizing with Uranus and Saturn which are both in Earth Signs forming an amazing Grand Trine in Earth Signs. Regarding our health, pay special attention to your intestinal and digestive issues because Virgo the Virgin rules these areas of the body.

On August 26th, there will be a Full Moon in the sign of Pisces. The brings fantasy and reality together, the spiritual and the material blend, even though these things are completely opposite of each other, boundaries come down and lines get blurred which means separating one from the other will be difficult.  Because this lovely combination of Pisces energy is creative and magical, this energy will bring in a strong harmonious influence. This Full Moon is a time to take the negative patterns and behaviors and balance ourselves out. The Pisces emphasis on this Full Moon will bring out the need to contemplate and relax.

This Full Moon is an opportunity to find what is totally magical about our lives. We should be tapping into our spiritual self through things like meditation, yoga, spiritual exercises, or anything that helps us balance our mind, body, and spirit together, which will allow our plans and lives to flow much more easily.

Have a great August,
~Ruby
