Full Moon

October Astro 2018 Newsletter

by Rubys Readings



This Fall is one of the most important times of the year in regard to our Karmic connections, and October is going to be a most interesting month indeed.  ~Ruby   a524654c9a240b4f4d332941412b638d   Another planet is finally moving forward soon and is nearly the last outer-planet to finally come out of its Retrograde cycle from nearly six months of Retrogrades, it’s been, rough folks. Starting October 1st Pluto moves out of its Retrograde cycle, where it’s been since the spring. This is a huge shift, as this Retrograde cycle has been life-changing for some folks. If you have any Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn that are strong in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart,” you’ve probably been dealing with some seriously major big challenges, changes, and transformations in your life. There might have been some endings that have left you feeling sad or gloomy under this transit. Some folks will actually start to see prosperity and a maybe a run of good luck that could change your whole entire life, especially if you are a Taurus or Virgo, or if your Natal Pluto Sign is in those signs at the time of your birth. But again no matter what your Sign maybe, look forward to moving at your own pace once again and for you to feel like you have some degree of control over your life and most importantly yourself.

Heads Up!

October 2nd and 3rd – Is a time to get away from those folks who seem agitated or frustrated, the planet of communication Mercury is making a tense Square to  the control freak of the Cosmos, Pluto, and it is not a good time for business dealings, and it can just be a testy time when it comes to negotiations or contracts, so avoid them if you can on these days.

Venus In Retrograde – Relationships & Money

Venus goes Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio.  October 5th through November 15th



If you have the Sun, Moon or Rising Sign in either Libra or Taurus, you may need to take extra special precautions during this cycle. Tread carefully! Regardless this can be an important time in your life no matter what your Zodiac signs maybe, this aspect seems to push you to reconsider your relationships and it brings up the ongoing question if you are happy or not! The good thing about a Venus in Retrograde cycle is how it’s a time to review over our love life, affections (crushes), relationships, and finances. This can be a time when you decide to take charge of your relationships or finances and give them the attention they so desperately need, and question current projects and commitments. This gives you some time to play catch up with your own heart and explore the possibilities. Work on negotiations and partnerships both intimate and financial or business. It’s also a good time to work on solving conflicts, especially in our relationships. Astro Tip Getting married while Venus is Retrograde is not recommended! I mean at all, no matter if you planned it out or not. So if someone asks you to marry them or vice versa, it’s best to wait until after this Retrograde cycle is over to actually have the wedding. It is not a time for heavy financial or even personal commitments either. It’s just difficult for anyone in a new relationship to gain any kind of commitment or have longevity while Venus is moving backward. But when Venus is in the sign of Scorpio, it’s even worse! Marriages and business relationships formed now probably won’t last. If you are going to make a commitment in love or around money, might I suggest you either get it done by October 5 or wait until the Retrograde phase is over in mid-November? This also goes for any ceremonies that are a re-commitment of some kind as well.

New Moon – October 9th



Look forward to the next New Moon, aka “Dark Moon” phase on October 9th, (when a New Moon is called a Dark Moon it is actually a good thing, just think of coming out of the Dark into the Light and what you are able to see or learn.) This New Moon will be in the sign of Libra, therefore our relationships are going to be of the utmost importance, as this influence offers us an opportunity for new starts in both ongoing relationships and former ones, which is going to be interesting considering relationship-ruled Venus is also in Retrograde. You might just return to an old flame during this time. Also, some folks will return to old jobs, or make some sort of amends with friends or family members they might have been estranged from. This is a time of forgiveness, which we need after such a rough summer of Retrograde Planets. This New Moon can be good for all types of new beginnings.
October, in general, is a good month for getting into Past Life Regression, especially if it’s around relationships of any kind. This time can help you connect to the emotional wounds of your Past Lives and the connections you had with certain people; like soul-mates, family members, and estranged friends. Working out the Karma you have with these people might be easier than usual. The best thing you can do is meditate on these people and allow yourself to let go of any emotional wounds you remember, and don’t forget to forgive yourself while you are it.  
However, there is a bit of an issue with the New Moon due to the “Cosmic Lovers” of the Zodiac having a lovers spat during this time when more masculine Mars makes a tense Square to feminine Venus, and Venus rules over this New Moon in the sign of Libra! This means any deeper issues with feeling dissatisfied in your relationship might be activated. Trying to take certain steps to move in a different direction can lead to aggressive behavior, and with Uranus in a Square as well making attempts to get our lives on track might be rudely interrupted by unforeseen forces of nature that we have no control over. Follow the ways of this New Moon in Libra and promote peace, harmony, and compromise when you can and you will do much better. Venus in Retrograde in Scorpio is making some nicer connections to Neptune and Pluto, and this means if we stay practical than we can fix the mistakes we have made from the last few years, so this can make things much more pleasant. Shifted blame on others for the way things have not worked out in our own lives will just create chaos! It’s important more now than ever to forgive yourself and others, which allows us to start over again in most relationships.

Sun Enters Scorpio



The Sun enters the sign of mysterious Scorpio on October 23rd. Scorpio’s key phrase is “I desire”, so with the Sun in Scorpio, we all can take on the traits of this deeply soulful, sexy, and mysterious sign. This is a time of depth, intimacy, and extreme feelings. Anything superficial, fake, or false won’t do under this sign. There’s a strong urge to merge with someone under this powerfully connected sign. In love, we can become obsessive and go overboard. Stay busy working on solving the little mysteries in life while searching for ways to get to the bottom of problems. Especially, other people’s issues, because it helps us feel satisfied and can bring feelings of contentment. Fake or false anything won’t do, as we’re searching for what’s real and authentic. All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed interests us during this time. Over the last month with the Sun in Libra, we worked toward keeping things peaceful and fair. However, under Scorpio, the vibe is more how life isn’t fair so deal with it! It’s that simple. Scorpio’s influence is more provocative, and usually kind of quiet or guarded. But we can feel strongly passionate, intense, and strong-willed. This can be a strong time for healing and transformation. But watch out folks for jealousy, vindictiveness, and manipulative behavior, which are just some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio’s influence.

Astro Tip

At the same time, the Sun shifts into more powerful Scorpio, the Moon in Aries will make a nice connection to Mars and a tense Square to Pluto. This means a “Solar Month” of people feeling energized, but also we can feel highly agitated and frustrated. We are lead by our emotions during this time, but it’s important to think before speaking or you can say things that can hurt others, and end up having to do some serious damage control! This can be a volatile energy, so it’s important not to be so serious, and lighten up during this time! You just may have to remind yourself from time to time that you are taking things way to seriously and try to relax.

Full Moon in Taurus



The Full Moon comes together October 24th when the Sun in Scorpio makes a connection to the Moon in Taurus around 11:45 EDT, 10:45 CST, 12:45 PST, and 9:45 MDT. This is a time when we are reawakened to our interest in the physical world and our own sensual needs and desires. It’s ok to be focused on yourself a little during this time, but you should watch for being overly stubborn. This will be a strong potent Full Moon my friends, as its energies will have built up for a while, and that pressure will be felt as the energy starts coming out. Many different Cosmic connections involve the Moon during this time, and this includes shocking Uranus, the willful Sun, and relationship-oriented Venus in Retrograde. There are certain situations that can make you feel torn between two different paths, one is going after what you want, and the other is a pull to escape and ignore reality in some ways. Karmic Saturn makes a nice connection to the Sun and Moon during this Full Moon, therefore the best way to gain your independence is through being honest and hard work, take care of your responsibilities and you’ll be rewarded. Since it’s easier to concentrate on reality our focus will be on doing what’s expected of us. Full Moon’s are always about letting go, and this gives us a chance to complete unfinished or forgot about tasks and projects, and to get rid of things we no longer want or need. And with seven planets in fixed signs during this lunation, we should be working on releasing what’s been emotionally difficult to handle, which is necessary to move forward.

Astro Tip

During the last week of October, a nice connection between influential Jupiter and wounded healer/teacher Chiron forms, and will peak on November 1st. This influence can lift our spirits a bit, as it brings us the opportunity to let go of negative attitudes that might have been undermining our progress. Being free from its restrictions can help us feel set free. We are especially open to learning from others, this helps us understand each other and respect each other’s opinions and points of view. This also exposes us to different ways of thinking and philosophies. We’re better able to share what we have learned from our past mistakes and experiences. Mentally curious Mercury hooks into this influence and aligns with Jupiter on the 29th, as well. This helps us to focus on our goals and not get caught up in details, so it can be a rewarding time. It also opens our minds to help us visualize in more expanded ways, and see the whole picture of any given situation. We can get our point across with a strong spirit and enthusiasm because we enjoy learning during this time.

“Autumn Equinox” – Balance

42368349_10155419177431268_8857686516839743488_n
“Autumn Equinox” – Balance
Today is a special and magical day!
It’s the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere! Happy Mabon my friends!
This is a special time when we celebrate the change of seasons. Lots of people from different backgrounds and cultures all around the world will be celebrating ancient old traditions with festivals, fairs, and parties all weekend long!
The Autumnal Equinox is the time of balance between day and night and is the time before night takes over and brings the coming Winter Season that is a time of darkness and endings. This duality between light and dark exists within humanity, and in the work of our spiritual transformation. All things must end before they can be born, all spiritual ascent requires descent first, and all those who long for light must firstly face their own inner darkness and overcome it. The Autumn Equinox symbolizes a point of inner preparation in the process of enlightenment, to make way for the new awareness to be born within at the Winter Solstice.
This shift into Autumn is a strong turning point in energy and is a great time for “Setting Intentions.” Treat this time like you would under a Full or New Moon, which will be easy since the Full Moon in Aires is already building up the energy to come together Monday evening, so it’s right on time.
This should also be a Day of Gratitude, after all, we’ve made it through a rough Summer season with very high temperatures for extended amounts of time, and an extremely strong Eclipse Season, and an extraordinary amount of planets in their Retrograde
cycles at one time! It’s been intense, to say the least! But we’re finally moving into the last stages of the Retrogrades time and amazing doors of opportunity are opening now for each of every one of us, as amazing gifts will continue to be revealed to us this Fall Season.
It’s important to Set your Intentions for the Fall, this Saturday. It’s a powerful time of the year to set goals of all kinds that can manifest during this season.
Click Here to learn how to Set Intentions.
Learn how to create a little magic of your own on this special day! This is a time when doors of opportunity open to a new realm and new energy emerges. It’s a very potent, strong energy, and is a good time to focus on how you are feeling about your life and what you want to manifest next. Think about the light and darker sides of yourself, the positive and negative parts of your personality as you start to tap into your shadow self through the Fall Season, as you balance your physical existence and spiritual needs. Look at the whole picture and your world both inside and out, to assess what needs to change and heal!

September’s Monthly Forecast

40481639_10155379066111268_1273125849536659456_n (1)

 

Rubys Astro Readings
For All Zodiac Signs
 
September of 2018 is the time to check on all your work and get organized since we’ve been under so much heavy Retrograde (backward) energy. I know this is a long article, but I had to share all the excitement, and what a month this is going to be folks, as we start off slow moving, but there are such strong shifts that start to move us forward again, you may be in a completely different place in one or more areas of your life by the end of the year under all these changes! The “Heavy Retrograde Season” energy is coming unraveled now and many of the planets that have held us back and stifled our forward movement while in Retrograde are going to be moving forward once again by the end of the month. So get ready big changes are coming! Get excited and start planning your next big move.
 
We start out the month with a long-term Jupiter/Saturn aspect on September 3rd, this connection comes just in time to help us focus on getting to work without taking any shortcuts, so more then likely taking an easier path won’t help you to sidestep any of your responsibilities for the first week of the month. This is the time to rebuild and restructure our lives, work, and business goals. Breathe new life into old projects and maybe wait until the New Moon on the 9th to start anything totally brand-new. Do the legwork and take steps to help you get where you want, but if you push or overdo things now you might just hit a brick wall and get quite frustrated! Many of you will feel quite overwhelmed this month as you try to get things back on track again, but that’s due to jumping so fast, one step at a time folks!
 
Mercury and Mars just went forward again and out of their Retrograde cycles in August, and on September 6th Saturn also goes forward and out of Retrograde! This is a big deal and will be felt in a deep way. There have been six planets in their Retrograde cycles all summer long, so many of you have felt stuck in one or more areas of your life. But all the frustration and delays are about to come to an end folks when Karmic Saturn finally comes out of Retrograde! This energy is already slowing us back down again as it gets ready for this shift, so you may feel tired or worn out, and are questioning your health right now, but really it’s just this energy zapping you. Saturn’s energy, when slowed down, can feel heavy and like you have a weight on your shoulders. It’s important now to set boundaries and work on saying “No” to the things you don’t want, or to what’s not working for you anymore, including any promises or commitments you’ve outgrown.
 
Saturn freshly out of Retrograde on the 6th will also make a beautiful “Grand Trine” with Mercury and Uranus. This is the Cosmic boost we are needing, as it helps raise our motivation levels to go after our goals. And it brings in some amazing opportunities we can chase down! Saturn is known as the planet of Karmic Debt so it can help us take out the trash and clean up some of the messes that the “High Retrograde” Season caused that started last April. A whole lot of folks will finally start to see progress and positive changes through the end of the year despite any Retrograde slow-downs.
 
There’s a magical New Moon coming together September 9th, in the sign of service, Virgo. If you are intuitive, Psychic, or sensitive, you may feel this energy strong! This time around the Sun and Moon are well aspected by powerful Pluto and lucky Jupiter. So pay attention, all healers, light workers, or spiritual warriors as special gifts are coming soon! There’s some seriously lucky energy brewing now and you might be feeling like something is coming, but you just can’t put your finger on it, and you may just end up in the right place at the right time, and something special might be happening very soon over the days leading up to this glorious New Moon. Some folks will just feel especially good from this influence and things will fall into place, finally! It’s about time.
 
Also, let me not fail to mention this New Moon is also going to be in a tense opposition to foggy Neptune, this influence may just put us in the right place to be of help or service to someone else! The Universe is calling out all healers and lightworkers of the world to do some serious work from the heart, so we must continue to lift others up during this time. Pay extra close attention to any opportunities that present themselves to be helpful or of service to someone who needs you! It’s important and not only helps those in need but also helps us balance our own Karmic Debt out, but more importantly healing others always in return helps heal you!
 
We have already been working on eliminating what is blocking us, and removing obstacles in our way. But when mentally curious Mercury makes a connection to Venus in Scorpio on September 9th, the energies shift once again, especially around our love life! The process of getting rid of stuff will continue for the next month. I don’t know about you but I have been hit by this a few weeks ago and have been organizing everything! And with Mercury now out of Retrograde, it is just that much easier to get things in order.
 
Venus will enter Scorpio also on the 9th and this will be a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships, and around our financial affairs. This is conveniently perfect timing with Fall right around the corner, as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can come out so we can be more secretive about both money and love. This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships!
 
Starting September 12th will be a good time to make important decisions, negotiations, and commitments when Jupiter makes a nice connection to powerful Pluto. Under these energies, we can actually have successful business meetings, especially if they are involving investments or real estate. While in this powerful energy we are able to nurture our ambitions. It’s a favorable time for the law, business, and commerce. Plus we might enjoy increased influence and insight now, as this energy helps restore our faith and hope, and opens us up to the possibilities! You might notice a deeper, stronger desire to make your mark out in the world, so you’ll give more time and energy to help yourself and others. This motivates us to go after some personal or professional goals! You might feel the nudge from this alignment to do something to better yourself, it’s time for some self-help really! Problems get solved more easily at this time, especially ones that have been around for a while. Sudden resources or opportunities show up that we missed out on before.
 
The Sun Enters The Zodiac Sign of Libra on September 22nd, and this sets the tone for the next three months. This is our Autumnal Equinox. On that day we will experience equal hours of daylight and darkness. While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next 28 days or so. Our relationships will also become of great interest and focus from September 22nd through October 23rd, but we can struggle with how to handle our relationships with Venus in Scorpio now. It’s going to take real balance to feel comfortable with our love lives.
 
The Full Moon comes together on September 24th in the sign of Aries! This is going to be a strong, potent Full Moon that serves as a reminder to consider if you’re taking care of yourself and the people in your close relationships or partnerships, equally. But this also can bring up issues about our leadership skills, and our abilities to initiate the changes that we need. While under this lunation, it makes a tense square to stern Saturn, so things may feel heavy or even draining once again during this Full Moon, but this is short lived. This can produce the energy of blocks and restrictions, so it can feel harsh as we are being served with reality checks. But we will show the Universe and prove to ourselves just how tough, resilient, and persistent we can be.
 
On the 25th, Chiron the “Wounded Healer” moves back into the sign of sensitive Pisces while in Retrograde, it was in this sign for years prior, but then it will go back into Aries later until finally going out of Retrograde on December 8th. This Retrograde cycle is all about taking the time to assess your mental and physical well-being. If you are not choosing to deal with any health or mental problems you might be experiencing during this time, they can become a bigger issue. Don’t ignore your body, listen to it! Chiron is trying to show you what’s wrong so you can heal something. Chiron is always about learning how to live with and through pain, so it wants you to deal with your emotional trauma and let go of your suffering.
 
Pluto will also turn direct from its Retrograde cycle on the 30th, this will be an intense shift folks! Weeks prior expect to feel perhaps more sensitive about the roles you play and what you have power and control over, and what you don’t! This shift can make us hyper-focused around our ambitions, as there is a strong pull or need to feel empowered by something in our daily lives. Over the coming weeks and months, the power to make deep changes in our lives becomes more evident and direct. We are more likely to start making big and necessary changes as we don’t feel as held back as we have while Pluto was in Retrograde over the last several months. So this is yet another powerful influence in September that motivates us to get moving and make changes!
 
September of 2018 is shaping up to be a pretty interesting month, with all these planets shifting and moving forward once again, you to should be able to move towards your dreams, plans, and goals that were kept on hold since last spring. Success is in the air, and this energy opens things back up! As we walk and then run through these cosmic doors, a bunch of you will feel more ambitious, so you’ll be able to achieve some of your goals over the next few months, especially around your work or career. But watch for pitfalls, there’s an awful lot of shifts and we may not be as ready as we feel just yet to make major changes! This is a month to stick to doing what is expected of you and see what good stuff you can draw in. So allow some things to just play out and see what happens at first, then follow the good feeling stuff.
 
Have a Happy September!

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 so you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies that 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 a 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 from your heart and try to work with this energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!

Full Moon Ahead!

There’s a beautiful Full Moon building up energy that will come together on Sunday, August 26, in the sign of the fish, Pisces. There are also at least five other more harmonious planet connections around the same time, and they are aligning with a couple of fortunate Stars! Under these Cosmic influences, it should be a good time to learn how to develop your own intuition and psychic abilities. Find some tools to assist you, like gemstones that activate the third eye or special oils to wear for example. All of these tools can assist you during the Full Moon and help you work with the energies. And often just lighting a candle, holding your favorite gemstone, while writing down what you wish to release or let go of can work the best.

Ask the Universe to help you develop and expand your own special unique gifts and talents. Did you know we all have our very own set of gifts, some folks are aware of them and might call themselves an Empath, Psychic, or Clairvoyant? But all of those labels are just how you connect to the Universe and its energies, really. If you are one who isn’t aware of your special psychic gifts you might be blocked up in some way due to learning how to survive life and simply not remembering that they are part of your very own spirit.

Some Good News! 
A lovely “Grand Trine” in Earth signs will be coming together on August 25, this lovely aspect is when the Sun in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus all work together. This energy can help us stay very grounded, practical, and stable. But this energy can also make you feel almost too grounded and sort of heavy, this will pass quite quickly. On August 26, the Full Moon will mesh well with this Grand Trine energy. Finally, there’s a shift and things start to make sense again, and any doors or windows that were closed will start be opening!

This particular Full Moon is great for working with our finances and for making money, or just seeing some dreams come true. Some folks will get the answers they have been looking for and there’s going to be some exciting opportunities for both personal and professional successes that can help you set up some kind of financial security for your future. A whole lot of folks are already actively looking and applying for new jobs this month and this will help a lot of you find new work which brings in a stronger sense of security.

Pay attention and look for the opportunities that present themselves over the last week of August, as this Full Moon in Pisces can help you improve something about yourself, or in your important relationships, and in life in general. The success will probably come through these new opportunities that will eventually turn into wealth and security!

This energy is amazingly strong for attracting all kind of prosperity. So make sure to Set Intentions, make out wish lists, or do some kind of ritual around this Full Moon, and call it in!! I highly suggest starting soon so you can do some sort of daily ritual to call in this energy to you, just do something proactive to draw money to you! One example is to write yourself a Check and place it under a crystal of some kind, everyone is different so I am not going to suggest one certain kind of crystal or gemstone, you go by how you feel. Leave it up until some kind of financial blessing shows up.

I do suggest, however, that you start working with this energy during the time when the Moon is increasing in light, rather than decreasing in light. So you will want to start from the New to the Full Moon, which if you are reading this on August 21st, is from now until the Full Moon. This way, when you plant your seeds of intention, they can begin to sprout and as the light increases slowly until it becomes a Full Moon, and so will the energy of your wishes!

A Look Ahead!
The day after the Full Moon, we will see fiery Mars goes direct.
It’s been Retrograde for months now, everyone is going to feel this shift in energy, and it can be either very positive or a very strong hit so to speak, so pay attention because big things are happening folks! As Mars slows down it’s going to stir people up, and some of the people are going to feel their emotions in an unhinged sort of way, and that can bring something to an end! Expect for folks to let out their pent-up anger and frustrations. Some of you may really want to start a fight of some kind, so watch for confrontations from out of the blue, they could get super serious fast. Our emotions have been suppressed or stuffed away for a while now and let all that out could easily be blamed on the upcoming Full Moon on Sunday and it’s build up this week.

But a lot of the cause for the anger is actually Mars coming out of Retrograde, and really us being able to finally express ourselves, it’s like deflating a balloon. It’s the calm before the storm, as this explosive energy can come out with a bang and then a strong sense of calm will wash over you afterward. If you are an Aries or have strong Aries or Scorpio placements in your Astrology Birth Chart, you need to be especially careful of what you say! You could easily explode!!

“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’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.  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

“Setting Intentions” & the Full Moon”

1608395_3830615699150_1900549090_n
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to bless and release whatever you need to let go of, and do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires by helping you release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out for good now.
 
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift. So we must release the old energies to be open for the new energies that will be coming in.
 
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
 
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore (sometimes it is just an attitude or thought)
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be.
 
Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to allow the time needed for your guides to light the way, it doesn’t always happen right away, but sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truths to be revealed during this time.
 
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the “Full Moon.”
 
Follow the steps below to learn how:
 
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do Full Moon work in. You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply …and call your Guides, Angels, or higher-power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared of any negative energy, and then to fill it up with the energy of love and light. (Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it.)
 
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere
Set the mood for your “Full Moon” Ritual and again burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some music that helps you feel spiritually connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.
 
Step Three: Setting Intentions with the Full Moon energy
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work at. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfortable in your favorite chair, not only because it feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
 
Next, you will write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy you’re trying to let go of and release. Write your letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard. Don’t forget to leave room for the energies to shift, change and mold what you’re creating. Sometimes these things take time, but you also may want to learn how to hear the messages or receive signs from the Universe, usually it’s a very subtle energy. But over time usually, your questions will be answered.
 
As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about … for example; Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life and what changes you would like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
 
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest (not your pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that great Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Don’t just think about it, now make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing. So if it makes you laugh, cry, scream or whatever, then go with it.
 
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. Which looks like you filling that space up with gratitude for what you do have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things you don’t have. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart, Ask yourself what makes you happy that is in your life right now! That way you are attracted more of that kind of “feeling” which will bring in more of the good feeling kind of energy, and that can make you way happier than getting all wrapped up in what isn’t in your life or being held captive by your pains and traumas.
 
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next 30 days, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore.
Happy Blessed Moon

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

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!
