February 2018 Monthly Astro Forecast 
by Ruby

February begins right in the middle of Eclipse Season as the Lunar Eclipse in Leo just occurred the last day of January.

This is a strongly animated energy with the recent Eclipse occurring in the sign of Leo, it was also conjunct the asteroid Goddess Ceres. This means we are being made more aware of our own creativity, and are tapping into this Divine Feminine energy, as this affects all of us so both men and woman. It’s a time to develop the more feminine side of your personality and see what your true potential just might be. Being halfway through the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere means we are slowly shifting from darkness to light. This means we have learned a lot of information thus far on a deeper soul level, and now are slowly developing and processing that information to bring out into our everyday lives once the Spring Equinox occurs.

One of the more strong planetary shifts happening this month is on Feb. 8th, when URANUS leaves it’s tense connection to PLUTO or what I’ve referred to over the years as the “SQUARE”! Since 2009, these two have been going in and out of strong tense connections together, as they have made several meetings from 2012-2015. So finally, we are turning a corner and getting away from this more intense aspect! This one has changed lives and for some folks, it has created the most challenging times of your lives. So good riddance to this energy!

The partial Solar Eclipse will occur on February 15th in the sign of Aquarius, (but remember this affects all of us.) This Eclipse will make an interesting connection to Aquarius ruling planet, Uranus. This energy can bring up strong reminders to value whatever freedom or privileges we do have and open our minds to different new ways of doing things and to be open to new perspectives. This is only a partial Eclipse, so it’s visible for the folks in places like Antarctica and Argentina.

The sign of Aquarius is about being cool, calm, and friendly while remaining unattached emotionally to other folks just enough to do what needs to be done. This influence teaches us how to not let our emotions rule our actions and to take care of business. So there will be a stronger desire to work on companionship with others during this time. Also, topics around health and medicine are going to become more important, especially mental health issues and woman’s health.

The North Node of destiny is currently in the sign of Leo, so during this Solar Eclipse, we are being asked by the Universe to work on healing our emotional wounds around betrayal and jealousy, to better follow our true life path and live out our real purpose. We do this by learning how to accept and love ourselves more. Letting go of resentments is where you start to do this kind of work, forgive yourself and others both and move forward.

It will get easier to do any kind of forgiving and letting go of differences by Feb 18th, when the Sun enters Pisces, the sign of compassion and acceptance. There will be five planetary bodies floating around in the ethereal waters of Pisces at that time, oh wow, can you say ESCAPE and RETREAT! There will be a strong urge to get away from it all as we draw near the end of the Astrological Year. Pisces is the considered the actual last sign of the Zodiac and the Sun in Aries is the beginning of our Astrological Calendar.

During the last part of the month, the energies are going to get heated up folks, so be aware and careful when aggressor Mars meets up with more relaxed Neptune on Feb 17th. This is one of those influences that just of becomes part of the backdrop of our lives until the end of the month, therefore it is important to not take easy ways out to get rest because you might feel like giving up on things all together. You may have to discover innovative ways to help keep you motivated during the last week of February.

Take it easy this month and get real with yourself about what truly makes you happy, and go after it with logic and common sense, but also make sure to take care of yourselves, we are in Eclipse Season and that can be very draining on all levels.

February New Moon 16



Do you really know or understand the “New Moon”, often also called the “Dark Moon” due to it illuminating the least amount of light in the months Lunar cycles.

The February New Moon of 2016 is really a wonderful energy. It takes place in the 11th House of the Zodiac for starters and that is a great house to reside in, simply because it holds some of the best energies. It’s the. “Manifestation of What We Have Wished For.” So it’s very important no matter what your sign to make New Moon wishes and “Set Intentions”. (To learn more about how head over to my blog site at rubyreadings.com ) This month’s New Moon is also in very open-minded Aquarius, so let your thoughts flow.

Astro Tip: Pay attention all my Aries or Aries Rising folks, this New Moon triggers the 11th House in your own personal Birth Chart in a big way! Which makes it an especially potent energy and time to make wishes or “Set Intentions”.

Here’s some important information about the February New Moon in 2016 you should know:

First off it’s time to let go of any behaviors that really aren’t serving you, so quit behaving the way you think you’re supposed to. This New Moon is in Aquarius and that means celebrate who you are and all of your uniqueness, embrace all of who you are, the good, bad, and ugly!

Then there is the healing properties this New Moon brings in. This doesn’t necessarily mean it’s just physical healing, but it can be. This is Healing on all levels, so it can help heal anything that makes you feel ill or uneasy. Clean out your emotional closets and unpack your bags, and your physical well-being can heal. What should you do to help heal yourself That looks like writing in a journal daily, or learning how to really meditate, and talking about your emotional issues with someone you trust, however you do it…just get it out!

Lastly there’s a lot of love and abundance that comes in during the February New Moon of 2016. As loving Venus is about to connect to lucky Jupiter…under this New Moon in Aquarius energy. So make sure when making New Moon wishes or lists, to do it with love in your heart. Ask for love even if you are in a committed relationship with a partner. Ask the Universe for love and abundance in all its forms, because we can become very lucky as love truly is what makes the world go around.

This New Moon will finally put us on a good path if we just simply “Ask” the Universe for what it is we want. So make your wishes immediately after the New Moon comes together Monday morning around 9am CST, 10am EST. And if decide to “set intentions” with this New Moon…you can make lists out over the weekend anytime, just don’t meditate or visualize with them until Monday morning. Have a Blessed New Moon!
