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 then 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’s, 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.  Becuase 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,

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse

Rubys Astro Readings
Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse

July has been an intense month on the Astrological front lines, with Mercury going Retrograde on July 25, and a Full Blood Moon with a Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27, it’s about to get intense folks! A Blood Moon is extremely potent and its effects are stronger than a normal Full Moon because a Total Lunar Eclipse always follows and stirs up lots of activity and emotions.

A Full Blood Moon has nothing to do with actual Blood! Even though life might be crazy during this time. It actually gets its name from the reddish hue it shines when the Earth and the Sun align and block the light of the Full Moon. Since ancient times Blood Moon’s have been labeled as a time of misfortune and chaos by very superstitious people. But more than likely it’s the hype that fed those rumors and created such fear that something bad was going to happen, so during these cycles, folks tend to get riled up and make poor choices. It is certainly a stressful energy we have to deal with, but it is what you make of it! In all actuality, we should be paying attention to the other planets and their connections to the Blood Moon/Lunar Eclipse to see how it will affect us!

This Eclipse will be affected more so by the planet Mars, which means this cycle will make us feel extremely emotional charged! Mars influence can cause frustrations or even anger which could easily turn into reckless actions, because of a harsh connection Mars is making to game-changer Uranus also at the time of the Eclipse. So yes, this can mean problems, but there are ways to get around these energies and deal with them. Forewarned is forearmed as they say! Now there’s a more gentle influence from Saturn coming in also during this time, and this can help keep things more grounded and calmer. And there’s also some fixed stars influence as well that can help us to be more patient and decisive in a crisis, but they also can cause more aggression and emotional upheaval.

It is said that the Total Lunar Eclipse this July is the longest running Lunar Eclipse this century, which only make its influence more intensified.

This Lunar Eclipse turns our attention towards our feelings, home & family, and intimate relationships. So as potent as this illumination is, it’s going to have an incredibly powerful influence mostly on our private lives. We will only be one day into Mercury’s Retrograde cycle the day the Blood Moon comes together and this can make people feel very nervous. There’s a lot of folks who still fear the Eclipses so some of you will be hanging out close to home out of fear, but we really shouldn’t allow this energy to scare us!

This energy certainly has its challenges, and with that painful transformations are already happening to lots of people. The Eclipse is a hard reset like on a smartphone, and a rather large download of information we receive from the Universe like an Update, but for our souls! So if over the last six months or so, things in your life have been building up to crescendo you just can’t seem to handle this Blood Moon/Lunar Eclipse can be a new beginning or a fresh start actually, please hang on tight you are about to breakthrough! This might cause us to be upset in some way, but this Karmic Experience can actually help us get rid of unwanted emotional baggage. It’s a cleansing for our soul!

We are already in Eclipse Season as it’s called, so if you have been feeling dragged down and out of it, that is completely normal. This just means the Eclipse energy is already begun, and in the weeks to come we must be prepared to expect the unexpected! Eclipses are turning points in our lives, and situations shift quickly without little warning, changes are everywhere right now, and sometimes we lose our footing during this time. This energy can be very disorienting when you aren’t aware of what is happening, and with so many planets in Retrograde it is a massive time of confusion. Since we won’t be able to visibly see this Lunar Eclipse here in the States we might not be paying attention to when it’s happening and try to ignore its side effects, but this can catch you off guard by its unstable energies, because regardless if you can see it or not, it is happening and its energies will affect you.

Our emotions and passions will be in high gear during this particular Lunar Eclipse, and our anger can be more explosive, so waves of sadness and frustrations might feel more overwhelming, and our passions will be more powerful than normal, but also moments of pleasure and happiness can feel like nirvana! Admittedly, this is a rough time for us, however, there is a ray of hope as we go through this transformation and the side effects we are experiencing are just necessary growing pains as we go through this metamorphosis! I believe strongly we will come out different on the other end of this Eclipse Season, with information planted in our unconscious minds to be brought out and discovered, it is an interesting but exciting time folks!

If you feel like you are in a dark place and are just blind to what is going to happen next, we are in the time of Mercury and so many other planets in Retrograde, but just know the light will find you once again and you will eventually see a glimmer if you will while you are in this dark emotional place, so DON’T GIVE UP HOPE! Allow the peacefulness that comes from being in the dark and not so distracted to wash over you and do something spiritual, like write in a journal or take a nice Moon bath. Do something that makes you feel better when you are stressed out during this time, take extra care and nurture yourself. The Eclipse energy is hard on us, and we need to get lots of rest, eat right, and exercise during this time to be at our best to handle these powerful downloads that are about to come in.

A Look Ahead
Two weeks after this Lunar Eclipse occurs there will be a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11.

Once again another very rare and important time, that I will explain more as we get closer to that time, but for now you should know this will be a good time for new and lucky breaks and new beginnings! If you don’t know how to Set Intentions or manifest your future please keep up with my blogs to learn all about it.

The Eclipse in Leo can be a lucky time for winnings and games of chance. Leo is already considered a lucky Sign, but you don’t have to be a Leo to reap the rewards from this Eclipse. If you are going to “Set Intentions” or make out Wish Lists for the New Moon on August 11, then focus your attention on money, prosperity, career, love, protection, peace and happiness, and healing!

Finally, remember that Eclipses bring about much-needed changes that you don’t always understand at the time. Of course, depending on what part of your own Astrology Birth Chart these Eclipses are moving through will show you just where your biggest challenges may be, but also what part of your life will see changes and ultimately rewards as well. If you book a session with me I will be glad to look up just what part of your life these energies will be affecting the most and share that information with you.

Full Moon – Inner Struggle

Standard
1608395_3830615699150_1900549090_n
 Full Moon
“Inner-Struggle”
 A Full Moon occurs in the sign of Capricorn on Wednesday/Thursday, June 27/28.

This Full Moon’s effects last for up to two weeks until the Eclipse comes together on July 12, that’s two weeks to make some positive changes.

This affects all the Zodiac Signs, this isn’t about being a Capricorn.

Exact times when the Full Moon begins.
June 28 12:53 AM Eastern 
June 27 11:53 PM Central
June 27 10:53 PM Mountain 
June 27 9:53 PM Pacific

A Full Moon is when the Moon reaches its highest peak, and creates a fertile energy as it brings in endings, especially around certain people, situations, or things that aren’t working for us! But it also starts New Beginnings! This is a highly emotional time full of romance and relationships issues. We usually feel more intuitive during the Full Moon, with wild dreams and psychic visions. There can be sudden random Ah-Ha moments that you should really pay attention to and even investigate, as the truth comes out during this time.

The Full Moons light illuminates important paths for us so we can see which ones we should be heading down. This energy takes us from the unconscious to the conscious mind, and we are made aware of what has been hidden, kept secret, repressed, or otherwise unknown. These new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, and our emotions are ready to burst out! It’s a time to express ourselves and to let things out of our system. Of course, you may want to exercise caution while doing so, as what is coming out is new and has not been thought out yet, so it’s not going to sound rational unless you think about it first!

A Full Moon is actually one of the tensest aspects between the Sun and the Moon every month! This energy can make some of you feel quite nervous and anxiety-ridden, but for others, the Full Moon is an exciting and adventurous time. It’s like watching two people ride a roller coaster, there’s always one person screaming in fear wanting to get off the ride, and then the other person is laughing and having the time of their life! That’s exactly how most of us are affected by the Full Moon’s influence, you either love the energy and feel excited or you get nervous and tense.

Some folks will have to deal with challenging situations and negative people around the last week of June. During this Full Moon, issues can seem much more intense and worse than what they actually are. Which is extremely important to remember!

~This Full Moon has the Sun in Cancer opposing the Moon in Capricorn.
The Sign of Capricorn is about taking responsibility and your career, public image, and reputation. The Sign of Cancer is about home, family, and taking care of yourself and others both. The closer we get to the Full Moon the more Saturn the “Lord of Karma” will affect us. Saturn is trying to tell us it’s time to decide if what we are doing is worth it or not!

The Universe is sending out signs and messages this week whether you should continue on a certain path you are already on or leave it behind! We must find a balance between these two energies, as this Full Moon wants us to balance our commitment to our families and our career. There’s been something building up inside of you already, and now is the time to express that energy as the Cosmos is bringing on the pressure so you will let it out!

Over the next few weeks, we will understand just how this Full Moon affected our lives, but for now we can’t just sit back and be quiet, we have to allow ourselves to fully be seen and heard in one way or another. The Full Moon is about being vulnerable, it forces us out of our comfort zone in one way or another, we are being made to learn how to be ok with trusting the Universe to protect us while letting our emotions come out, but the trick is to learn how to do it safely and without anger or harmful side effects.

Writing down how you’re feeling during a Full Moon is a great way to do just that, it is mostly safe and allows you the safe space you need to express how you are truly feeling. That’s why I always mention Setting Intentions with the Full Moon and its energies. Doing this healing work every month can truly set you free in ways you haven’t experienced. Starting Wednesday, June 27th around lunchtime, once the Moon shifts into the sign of Capricorn you can sit down and write out how you are feeling and have a heart to heart with the Universe, and see how it changes your life. I expect you to be pleasantly surprised if you commit to this kind of work every month.

This Full Moon can be a very strong dramatic turning point for us, being in Capricorn the sign of completion and consequences, which is ruled by rule-maker Saturn. This Moon is closely joining Saturn the “Lord of Karma” during this time, and this can mean this lunation will have a strong sobering tone to it. And we may not feel quite like celebrating like usual under the Full Moon energy. But I say CELEBRATE anyway, there are many other Cosmic Connections happening which we can feel grateful for. This energy can help us gain clarity about our priorities and helps us realign with the energies of what is most meaningful to us in life. Which in turn, can help us focus on our jobs, relationships, and other pressing issues that need our attention.

This Full Moon is making quite a positive aspect with Saturn and Uranus both, which means we can have some reality checks for sure, but we can make this new information work for us. This can bring unexpected opportunities and breakthroughs. There might be a tough choice to make, or we may feel pressured to make some kind of change. These influences help us out of the heaviness we are feeling, especially if we make the effort, then you can change some of the things in your life that are no longer working for you.

You might just meet people randomly or out of the blue, and some of these encounters might be romantic! Because Saturn is Retrograde now, it’s likely these folks are Karmic or Past Life Connections. This does not mean you’re meant to be together! It is a time of Retrograde planets all over the place, so take your sweet time. With the Moon making aspects to Uranus we can leave toxic relationships or jobs now, it’s a time to Break Free from what isn’t serving your higher purpose. You must want this, however, but you can Break Free from most anything under this Full Moon!

If you’re feeling depressed, sad, or restricted just know these feelings will pass, before going off and making any major life changes. My best advice is to take advantage of this Full Moon energy and Release something or someone from your life, as it’s time for something to go! Under these strong, potent energies you can let go of toxic people in general or bad behaviors that are harming you.

Chiron the wounded healer is in the sign of the Warrior Aries and is making tense squares to the Sun, Moon, and Saturn during this Full Moon. This energy can stir up some old emotional wounds folks! It may have to do with your confidence, courage, power, and assertion. Frustrations and anger can come out, and since Aires is ruled by assertive Mars which is also in Retrograde, and we can end up tapping into a very deep place within ourselves where we’ve held repressed hurt feelings or emotional baggage. Mars meets up with the South Node which is our Karmic Past! But Chiron is making a more harmonious aspect to Mercury in Cancer and the North Node of Destiny in Leo, which leads us to a path for healing purposes.

With all of this happening it is advised to not over assert yourself just to protect those buried wounds. Instead, Speak Your Truth, but with Love and Compassion, it’s ok to be vulnerable, it doesn’t mean you’re a victim, it means you trust yourself. Hold a space in your heart to explore this energy, and don’t allow anger to take a hold of you! Anger is only fear in the end in one way or another.

Have a Safe and Blessed Full Moon.

Full Moon Guide

Full Moon Guide

by Ruby

“How does the ‘Full Moon’ affect you, and how do you utilize its potent energy?”

During a ‘Full Moon’ you have an opportunity to bring about some positive changes in your life if you use this energy wisely. It either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball, the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder about how to work with the ‘Full Moon’ and its energies.

Remember a ‘Full Moon’ disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and every one of us. So the key to achieving success during a ‘Full Moon’ is to stay calm and embrace its positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a ‘Full Moon’, and our emotions can seem extremely intense. A ‘Full Moons’ energy is very powerful, so it’s important to know where you’re directing it. You can start by staying focused on positive intentions from your heart. Which means being real and authentic with yourself.

We’ve all heard of how the ‘Full Moon’ affects human behavior, causing chaos; as it fills up emergency rooms, but we also see random acts of crime spike dramatically during a Full Lunar cycle. Not only does the Moon actually create the tides in the ocean, science has also proven that the ocean literally ‘swells’ during a ‘Full Moon.’ The human body is made up of around 70% water. If the ‘Full Moon’ can move an entire ocean it certainly can and does have an impact on our human bodies that are mostly made of water. Water is strongly associated with and symbolizes our emotional well-being.

So just as the power of the ‘Full Moon’ can make entire oceans swell and move, the water we hold within ourselves becomes charged up from its energy, and this causes emotional side effects. The energy of a ‘Full Moon’ has a strong influence on us, hence why people act out days prior to its actual being Full…. this usually starts about three days prior and up to three days after it became Full. Just think about how the ‘Full Moons’ energy is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out, it’s a very powerful, potent energy. All of the Moon’s cycles affect us differently, (but they do affect us,) because they’re part of us. The ‘Full Moon’ perhaps having the most dramatic and noticeable impact.

Ask yourself just how much personal power you have? If one can stay focused and use the ‘Full Moons’ energy to send out positive intentions, you can create and manifest energy out here…in this physical reality. It’s really all just about being conscious and aware of what you’re creating. Water molecules have been proven to hold an emotional charge within our bodies. How you feel is how they react, and they DO react according to your energetic intentions. So if you’re happy or sad, positive or negative, the water within you is affected on a molecular level. If we concentrate on this energy and focus on what we truly desire, and then visualize that – even more importantly FEEL it – can you imagine the possibilities! We can literally create what it is we desire out here in this physical world. I find that to be exciting! If you’re more interested in understanding how the water in our bodies affects us, check out this website on Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, “The Water Crystals of Masaru Emoto”

This means if we visualize and then “FEEL” our intentions – as the Moon grows full – and I mean truly “FEEL” what it is we want, we can literally transform our feelings and intentions into reality in this energy. It’s my hope you can make sense of this and use the power of positive thinking and visualization to manifest your Dreams into physical reality; the ‘Full Moon’s’ energy is just a bit of Magic we need to make it happen. Let me know what you do with this info, and if you’re brave enough to test the waters?

The ‘Full Moons’ energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware of these energies, it gives you an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth. Here are some tips to follow during the ‘Full Moon’, that can help bring in more positive energies…and release old energies that just simply don’t work anymore in your life. Here are some simple guidelines to follow during the ‘Full Moon’:

1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!

The ‘Full Moon’ is a time of releasing and one should stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing how you’re feeling down or telling a friend, and wait for at least a few days after the ‘Full Moon’ and then again write down how you’re feeling, see the comparison. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.

2. Think positive thoughts!

During the ‘Full Moon’ each month, you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to sleep, visualizing what you truly desire, or on what’s good or positive in your life while being thankful for your blessings…it can be magical! Remember “the attitude of gratitude.”

For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.

3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.

The ‘Full Moon’ is the right time to do manifestation work around releasing what is no longer working or serving you. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write what you would like to manifest and what energy you’d like to see gone or are done with. You could even make a Vision Board with pictures that represent your goals, it can be the actual goal or the word that represents your dreams and wishes, place them on a cork board, make a collage…and hang it up on a wall, where you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies of you want to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or Setting Intentions as it’s called, during the ‘Full Moon’ it can give you an energy boost!

4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.

The ‘Full Moon’ pours out so much energy, that meditating during one can create a calm and still energy that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a ‘Full Moon’, so look for spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be very powerful healing and manifest work.

5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.

Having this powerful energy at your disposal makes a ‘Full Moon’ the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light and energy out… out to everyone, you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world (which we need more than ever), think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need.

Whatever you believe in or faith you might have…you can’t deny the way you feel during a ‘Full Moon,’ so at the very least take one small step within your heart and try to work with its energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!

Full Moon Ahead!

fba1a1c0d26771192a3cfa0fed496a2b

A Full Moon comes together mid-morning on May 29th, in the sign of Sagittarius.

A Full Moon is when the Moon reaches its highest peak, and creates a fertile energy as it brings in endings, especially around certain people, situations, or things that aren’t working for us! But also New Beginnings! We usually feel more intuitive during the Full Moon with wild dreams and psychic visions. There can be sudden random Ah-Ha moments that you should really pay attention to and even investigate, as the truth comes out during this time.

The Full Moons light illuminates important paths for us, where we can see which ones we should be heading down, this energy takes us from the unconscious to the conscious mind, as we are made more aware of what has been hidden, kept secret, repressed, or otherwise unknown.

A Full Moon is actually one of the tensest aspects between the Sun and the Moon every month! This energy can make some of you feel quite nervous and anxiety-ridden, but for others, the Full Moon is exciting and adventurous time. It’s like watching two people ride a roller coaster, there’s always one person screaming in fear wanting to get off the ride, and then the other person who is laughing and having the time of their life! That’s exactly how most of us are affected by the Full Moon, you either love the energy or you feel nervous and tense from its influence!

The Sun in Gemini’s influence has us thinking more logically, while the Moon in Sagittarius has us following our gut instincts and intuition. Both of these signs influence helps us enjoy acting on a whim and promotes thinking outside the box.

Sagittarius energy shifts our focus onto the possibilities and helps us find meaning in situations. While the Sun in Gemini’s influence has us feeling quite comfortable in our immediate environment. Sagittarius grabs us and says, “get out and go beyond this world.” Ideally, during a Full Moon, we should be focusing on creating a balance between the Sun and Moons energies, this is exactly what the Full Moon invites us to do.

This Full Moon in Sagittarius influence can cause you to express ourselves quite boldly! We should pay attention to how we are communicating, and listen to that little voice that wants to guide you, it’s your sense of adventure and it wants you to experience something amazing. It’s challenging to keep our feelings to ourselves during this Full Moon. All our emotions are like a boiling pot of water, they rise up and must be released now. There are situations, projects, and relationships that are drawing near to there endpoint. But this also means there is “New Beginnings” on the horizon. You may feel an urgency to announce how you are feeling to finally find closure in a situation or to finalize something.

bd1d8ca107225d704b8e22853c70a82a

This also the time of what’s called the “Wesak Full Flower Moon”, which is Buddha’s Birthday, the celebration date is different in different countries. The United Nations will celebrate it May 29, 2018!

This Full Moon energy is also meeting up with Jupiter, Sagittarius ruling planet, and Jupiter is currently in the sign of Scorpio and is making a beautiful connection to Neptune in Pisces! It’s believed this is a time of great fortune and fame, expansion and growth! It brings out faith, hope, optimistic attitudes, and often great luck for some folks. This can be a great energy for travel, education, traveling, and imports. Great stories and fantasies will be told as well, there’s a strong sense of humor going around! Gambling can go well for some folks! And this also might just help with health problems.

If you add all that energy with the Psychic and dreamer of the Zodiac, Neptune, in its own sign of Pisces you can actually enjoy yourself! You might get to experience popularity. You may find yourself on some sort of spiritual quest into new or even exotic places on this physical plane, and in your mind. Love relationships will be light and fluffy but also felt deeply all at once under this energy!

This Full Moon is producing a specially blessed energy since the Goddess of Love herself, Venus is also joining in Trine between Jupiter & Neptune, creating a Grand Water Trine on June 1st & 2nd. Jupiter’s influence can cause us again to be quite blunt and honest with what we are thinking, (that doesn’t mean it’s the fact or truth.) However, with it being in the sign of Scorpio this helps us to see deeply into our psyches and gets us in touch with our deepest pains and greatest powers. Again, this does also help us tap into our sense of humor if all else fails.

Neptune is its own sign of Pisces during this Full Moon, this can have us feeling more detached from our physical reality. Since this is a Full Moon, some folks will choose to leave the planet, it can be a strong time for folks and animals to cross over, but usually, this affects those who have already been sick or suffering or those who have decided its time to go on a soul level. You might feel sort of spacey or oblivious, with no major plans in place, but if you get moving around, you’ll notice you can connect better to the Universe than usual. This energy can make you feel things that lift your spirit, like music, art or beauty can be felt in a majorly deep way, this energy reaches us beyond words in every molecule of our body. You just may feel like saving the world!

Venus is currently in the sign of Cancer, so this helps us to be more aware of how we are feeling. We can feel more compassionate, as she helps us face our demons and comforts us in the process. This energy assists with memories and subtle signs and symbols that the Universe is trying to convey to you. This can help most importantly open up our spiritual Heart, (Heart Chakra), and remember crying is healing.

This is a period possibly where dreams come true! Do some serious soul-searching starting now through June 2nd about what you want to see happen in your life. Set up the necessary steps to be taken to put your plans into action. And let this energy develop and grow, remember once you’ve done the work often patience is important and needed.

May 2018 Monthly Horoscope
by Ruby

April was a seriously intense month on the Astrological front and this was reflected in our everyday lives. The planetary shifts we have experienced have been transformational, but there is more to come now as we begin 1, and hopefully, these energies will be more on the calmer side.

The powerful Full Moon in Scorpio is slowly breaking apart now but was one of the most intense Full Moon’s of 2018. And with so many planets going in and out of Retrograde (backward) like Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto we are feeling it! The odd part is we are feeling this energy more internally, due to the planets that are Retrograde, and many of you aren’t choosing to express how you’re feeling. Do what you can to express your emotions during this highly emotionally charged time.

The first week of May might seem almost quiet once the Full Moon energy breaks apart, but the New Moon in Taurus on May 15th can be a catalyst that brings in major changes in our personal relationship with our physical reality. The weeks ahead will likely be some of the most important moments of 2018.

The New Moon comes together on May 15th, 2018! Just hours after the Sun and Moon connect, the New Moon occurs. And on the same day, Uranus the planet of change, chaos, and liberation also changes signs for the first time since 1942, into the sign of Taurus, this starts on May 15th and goes until November 6th!

Uranus is the planet of high vibrational energy and revolution, so as you can imagine having Uranus so active on the day of the New Moon is a pretty big deal. Note: this will affect all the signs, and not just Aries and Taurus!

Many of you are already experiencing the effects of Uranus’s shift into Taurus and may not even realize it. The first of the Earth Signs, Taurus represents our basic survival needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and money. Since Uranus has been in the Sign of Aries for so long now, it helped to create that spark as it’s fire breathed new life into all sorts of situations and projects. But the sign of Taurus helps to sustain life, so themes around manifesting, building, and farming and anything earthy will be our primary focus now. Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus also favors anything beautiful, pleasurable, and sensual. We are not just here to exist or be of service under Uranus in Taurus like we have been doing all these years with Uranus in Aries. Under the sign symbolized by the Bull, Taurus, we are here to live in Earth’s beauty and abundance of nature and to give and receive.

The Sign of Taurus is very much associated with the planet Earth, and since our human existence is literally hurting our home planet, we will see this reflected back to us so we can heal. Therefore, Uranus’s entry into Taurus can be dramatic, mostly because this happens just a few hours after the New Moon comes together.

So other planetary connections will be triggered, and one of those connections can create some serious volatile energy right around the time when the New Moon makes a tense Square to aggressive Mars in Capricorn, while Uranus is the very last degree of Aries, and this is right before it’s shift into Taurus, and that is a very strong placement and time. So make sure to be careful about how you react to folks from May 13th through 17th, because sometimes it’s just not worth a reaction at all.

Uranus stays in the sign of Taurus until November 6, 2018, which gives us some time to get things settled back down, and work on grounding!

Then Uranus actually goes Retrograde and throws itself back in the sign of fiery Aries on November 7th through March 6th, 2019, so we already know how to handle Uranus in Aries, but in Retrograde it’s a whole new story. The urge to start fresh and break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, and to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries. I will explain that more as we get closer to that time.

Uranus finally will re-enter Taurus on March 7th, 2019, for a seven-year journey that won’t end until April 26, 2026. Whatever events or changes that are caused by Uranus in Taurus were probably already started a long time ago.

On May 16th, Mars enters emotionally detached Aquarius, through August 12, this can be a bit unforgiving and aggressive energy. It’s also a dynamic yet erratic energy, we can try to achieve our goals but in a very impulsive manner, and our anger levels can be a bit impersonal. However, we are less concerned with personal power and are more team-players, and cooperative during this time. We are highly attracted to unconventional methods and tend to approach problems more with our minds, as we feel more detached from our emotions.

The Sun drifts into Gemini’s quick-witted and alert presence for a month starting on May 20, making you intensely curious to learn new things. Expand upon the knowledge base you tapped into earlier in the month or learn something totally new. You can be quite the quick study of this energy. Everyone is going to feel this energy, so life might move extremely fast, take a lot of notes during this time and learn to take breaks.

A beautiful Jupiter-Neptune Trine comes exact on the 25th of May, this is the major planetary influence this month and lasts from May 10 to June 12. This encourages hope, generosity, and a sense of community spirit. You may start seeking out a spiritual quest to find the truth during this time. There are going to be many destined encounters with teachers and light-workers of all kinds, like Guru’s, Priests, Psychic’s, and Healers. Someone might even come to you for spiritual guidance. Enlightenment comes through dreams, visions, meditation, and deep spiritual pursuits. It will be more difficult to ignore the sick, poor, and needy during this time, as we are reminded that we are here to take care of each other! As your morals or standards vibrate higher, you will want to find ways to do selfless acts to helps those that need you. Animal and environmental charities will be on our radar even more so than usual. There will be more interest in human rights and refugees, and other innocent victims of war and greed, as social justice will be more important.

Some folks may feel a strong urge to get creative and find an outlet for their enthusiasm through music, dance, art, or theater. Following our dreams for success without having to sacrifice our ego or material possessions is part of this influence, and being wealthy or famous might not be what makes you truly feel happy and content. Romance will be strong and love will be in the air during this time, as others can find you extremely attractive!

On May 29th the Full Moon comes together in the sign of Sagittarius, this energy is all about the adventure or journey! It opens up the greater truths and everything we need to explore our personal freedom. The Sun in Gemini will be opposing the Moon in Sagittarius so our minds will be lit up, as the fiery Sagittarius Moon illuminates our souls wisdom, and helps bring forward information we know on a deep cellular and soul level, it’s the info we carry in our DNA we are talking about here, including past life memories, it is the information we carry deep in our hearts and in our bodies. This very special lunation inspires us to seek a higher perspective on our life’s path, which opens doors to new possibilities and helps us create our future!

Just a little side note:

A special point in the Cosmos is going to be activated on the day the New Moon comes together, this is all about feminine wisdom and power! If you thought the New Women’s movement had peaked with #metoo or #timesup, think again! May is a good time to think about your place in this world as a woman or if you are a man, around the woman you love and support, and your feminine side. Ask yourself where you want to be! If you’re not feeling inspired by life, then now is the time to do something about that and perhaps join a cause that supports your beliefs of course.

Rubys Astro Readings
April 2018
“Full Moon in Scorpio”

The Full Moon is in Scorpio this month and occurs on Sunday, April 29th, at 7:58 PM Central & 8:58 PM Eastern.

In Astrology, Full Moons are oppositions between the Sun and Moon. This energy is tense and challenging, but also exciting and captivating. It’s a good time to work on balancing these two very different energies. All Full Moons bring up and out our deeper emotions to be felt, so we can better understand these feelings and deal with them.

This particular Full Moon in Scorpio can help us to let go of any fears we have and breakthrough to the next level of our reality which is Evolution.

Full Moons will bring up issues around something in your life that needs to be fixed or aligned. This time around the balance we seek is between our connections to this physical reality, so our human-self is symbolized by the Sun in Taurus, and the connection we have to our deeper emotions or Soul Path, which is symbolic with the Moon in Scorpio. It’s time to think about our deep emotional connections to others and ourselves, and how they are essential to our human experience, as these feelings play an important role in defining and understanding what we value most. The Sun in Taurus is when we discover what we require to be emotionally happy, and with the Moon in Scorpio, we’re discovering what we fear and desire.

The Full Moon in Scorpio shines brightly and helps to illuminate what’s been hidden, repressed, or kept secret. This is a time when we get rid of old emotional conditioning that was taught to us from our past, so in other words old behaviors that are no longer serving us and ways of thinking that have become outdated and don’t work anymore. Often old behaviors are mistaken for old family values, so don’t confuse the two, or keep doing the same thing or thinking in the same way out of fear of change, or you can get hooked into your past behaviors and not leave it behind. Scorpio energy is about letting go of our past so we can embrace our future.

The Sun in Taurus energy teaches us how to find comfort and stability, and symbolizes the connection we have with our personal values. This energy is about maintaining healthy relationships and keeping up boundaries with those folks and things that are negative and that hold us down from accomplishing what we truly desire.

The Full Moon in Scorpio can have us craving ways to transform and resurrect ourselves, this energy puts us in touch with our deepest desires and worst fears. If we look at our past traumas to see how they made us feel powerless, we will be able to tear down the walls we’ve built around our hearts and felt protected by and be vulnerable enough to trust others to help us.

This energy is about being vulnerable without fear of falling victim to the power of love, so all you single ladies and gentleman if you want a good solid relationship, pay attention to any vulnerability issues you may have, this is the key to making a relationship really work for you. This Full Moon energy can help us learn how to trust others again. Only by acknowledging our fears can we truly transform into powerful people that use our inner strength to love and be vulnerable in a more positive sense of the word, which means we trust the ones we love enough to not hurt us.

This Full Moon occurs right around the time of a Mars-Pluto alignment, and this adds to the themes of personal growth, transformation, and intensity. It’s also Square to the North Node of Destiny, and it can feel shocking, as it can drag us out of our comfort zone with a jolt that feels quite disruptive and possible at first seems counter-productive. This lunation is at harmony with Karmic Saturn however, which leads to an ultimate sense that we are doing the right things for our long-term growth and success, even if at first it doesn’t feel like it.

The absolute best way to work with this Full Moon in Scorpio energy is to see everyone as connected. It can help you to work with those that are committed to waking up spiritually and making changes that help us all as a whole. It’s best to put your energy or attention to where you have influence, rather than pushing those folks who aren’t ready yet! Choose your battles wisely.

This Full Moon helps you stay in touch with your deeper feelings and can help strengthen your relationships with your unconscious mind, as information comes forth that can help you and your partner or loved one. The future doesn’t seem so difficult when you let go of past trauma and pain because more than likely whatever you fear the most has already happened.

Allow your heart to be open and love all of who you are, even that part of yourself you keep hidden from others, so the person who was there before all the trauma and pain, that person who has been there all along in your soul can be seen again and shine! Take the time to be kind to yourself, and have the courage to explore your deepest truths during this Full Moon in Scorpio.

Blessed Full Moon
