Gemini

November Full Moon


By Rubys Readings

WIshing you a Happy Thanksgiving!

The Moon is Full in Gemini on November 23, 2018

The Full Moon occurs as the Sun in Sagittarius forms a tense opposition to the Moon in Gemini.


Full Moon details: Here’s when the Full Moon will come together, and for those folks who like to Set Intentions with the Full Moon, the Moon will go VOID late Saturday night or early Sunday morning!

  • Pacific – November 22, 9:39 PM
  • Mountain – November 22, 10:39 PM
  • Central – November 22, 11:39 PM
  • Eastern – November 23, 12:39 AM

This means there is a push and pull situation between the signs energies and it affects each and every one of us. 



The Sign of Gemini is about the lower mind and Sagittarius energy represents the higher mind. 


A Moon in Gemini’s lesson helps us learn how to think more logically, while the Sun in Sagittarius is persuasive and helps us think in a more open-minded way, and more far-reaching. 


The Sign of Sagittarius is about the quest for meaning and knowledge and coming up with ideas that expand our here and now experience or at the moment. Gemini is quite comfy in its own environment or neighborhood, while Sagittarius is stimulated and wants us to go explore and have adventures. If we ignore our feelings either one of these energies provokes within ourselves things can get thrown off. Ideally, if we try to find a balance between these two energies, then this is what the FULL MOON wants us to do.



This Full Moon is all about communication, our behavior, attitude, and our sense of adventure. There might be a feeling like something has been building up inside of you, especially with so many planets in Retrograde now or just coming out! So now is the time when the energy of the Cosmos is hitting its peak and we must express how we feel! Over the next few weeks, we will probably learn more about what these feelings were about more so, and what they mean for us and our lives.


But for now it’s going to be difficult to not express how we are feeling through communication, and just keeping our mouths shut might prove to be very difficult, not only because of the Full Moon but also due to mental Mercury (Gemini’s Ruling Planet) in Retrograde, under the most expressive sign in the Zodiac, Sagittarius! This means we have a stronger than usual need to express how we are thinking and feeling out loud! This can be problematic, however, because during an emotional Full Moon we aren’t logical we are overwhelmed with emotions and therefore we come off way more irrational, and our feelings can bubble up and get the best of us. With Mercury right now in Sagittarius, we can communicate these feelings out loud and live right in other folks faces, and we may not have the normal filters to think first before reacting!



Rubys Rants

Bottom line folks it can be a weekend of frustrating conversations with people telling it like it is, at least according to them anyway, and that also means misunderstandings. It’s important to think before speaking if at all possible during this time and I know I say that more often than I probably should, but heed my warning on this one, these energies are tense and intense feeling! But look at your possibilities and what’s readily available to you at this time, and since this Full Moon comes together the night of Thanksgiving basically we should be already focused on what we are Thankful for. These influences can be strong and throw us off our game, but I have always believed if you set your mind to it, you can learn from the planets more challenging energies or connections. Remember this “LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE”, so whatever it is you focus on especially during a lite up FULL MOON, is what you will bring to you. I understand some of you aren’t doing well in life, and it’s so difficult just to think something good can happen, and I am not one to be so idealistic all the time that I don’t see the reality of a situation, but I also know if you direct your energy out to the world and the Universe, asking and even expecting good things, then eventually something better will show up! Be your own observer and pay attention to your thoughts and how you are looking at life, and make sure your next thought is about something good! 



The Full Moon is a time when things come to a close and there is an energy of hope and fulfillment of that which was started back during the last New Moon a few weeks ago. It’s an emotional time that is romantic and full of relationship issues. The Moon is Full and bright in the sky during this time, and that is symbolic of the “illumination” that is occurring in our own lives. Or when things come out into the open and are brought to light. However, again these feelings we have now and revelations are based off our emotions and they can suddenly erupt and like a light bulb coming on, we just realize something, have an Ah-Ha moment as it’s called, or an epiphany of some kind. This is a time of awareness and knowingness! It is a time to usually express ourselves and to let things out into the open. Of course, we may want to try extra hard this time around to use some special care when doing so, knowing that what we are communicating or expressing is not particularly rational as of yet. 


This Full Moon is complicated and personal for us. Being in the Sign of Gemini we are more curious and seek out ideas and information like crazy. This can also bring on a sudden awareness into our lives as I mentioned, but we can feel rushed, hurried or like things are rather urgent with a” must know right now” kind of mentality. You may feel like you need to get important messages to others, and to finish some sort of project and make announcements. Just think before you say anything! Travel and communication are our main focus during this time, but again Mercury is Retrograde and is Gemini’s ruling planet and this causes tension in these areas of our life. 



Mercury is Retrograde and the Full Moon is in a tense Square with warlike Mars during this Full Moon. The Sun is also heading towards a connection to Jupiter, and Mercury is heading to meet up with Jupiter and the Sun, while it’s in Retrograde. All of this suggests that we’ll be looking at past matters in new ways, but also acting impulsively which can really cause problems, so remind yourself to MOVE SLOWLY DURING THIS TIME! 


Thanksgiving Forecast

On Thanksgiving Day, the Sun moves into the sign of Sagittarius so there can be a light-hearted energy to the Holiday. The Moon will be VOID which creates a relaxed energy, so lots of folks falling asleep lol. With the Moon in earthy Taurus, an indulgent energy that truly enjoys food, it’s likely a whole lot of folks will overeat (which is expected) but some of you are apt to fill your plates a second time, and then have dessert and still make room for leftovers and maybe a midnight snack. If you are cooking this year, seriously make extra food.



HEADS UP!

As we get closer to midnight Thanksgiving night the Moon will shift into more busy Gemini and will become FULL on the 23rd! A Sun and Jupiter connection can cause overspending if you are already not feeling it. This means folks who are going out for Black Friday sales are going to probably open their wallets way more than usual. Many Astrologers are predicting record sales this year for retailers on Friday and Saturday. If you plan on traveling this weekend, be extra careful as people are a bit confused, with the Full Moon and Mercury in Retrograde it’s all too easy for accidents to occur! Tempers can rise quickly as well with warrior Mars testing the Moon, Sun, and Jupiter over the weekend.



Next week things start to look so much nicer folks, so work together, as lots of things in spite of Mercury in Retro will run smoothly once again. All of these shifts can create a lot of energy that can throw us off center. So pay attention, take your time, ask lots of questions if need be, and if someone is getting upset or frustrated remember we are all in this energy together, and under Mercury’s weirdness things aren’t so black or white. You can defuse a lot of problems if you simply are patient, flexible, and understanding, otherwise you don’t want a Holiday Mess. Focus on the deeper meaning of Thanksgiving which is to simply be with our loved ones and give thanks for who and what we have in our lives.


Have a safe and good Holiday.
Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

End of November’s Astro News!!


By Rubys Readings 


It’s time to start listening to your messages, I’m talking about the messages the Universe, the Cosmos or whatever you want to call it is trying to send to you. This week there’s going to be many signs from the Universe and they can show up in the most unusual, bizarre, and strange ways. But there will be some that are very clear. Many people believe that if they get a sign more than once especially if you get them twice, and definitely if you get them three times, that is not just a coincidence, it’s not something you should just ignore because it truly means something.


Good News!

We have been under an extremely intense energy, that’s also been sort of a sad really since October 3rd, with Venus the planet of love & money in Retrograde. But as of the 16th, Venus has gone direct again finally, so relationships and our finances can finally get back on track again. If you broke up with somebody during this time and you’re hoping to mend your relationships perhaps, you probably have more of a fighting chance with Venus back and moving the right way again. This Transit can possibly help you reconcile, but if that’s not always how these things work out, so if that’s what you are experiencing then the relationship was likely never meant to be or was supposed to end. So it’s been interesting but it’ll be even more interesting to see how this plays out over the coming weeks ahead because many of my clients and blog readers have had to come to terms with their relationships and make some very hard choices. Venus in Retrograde brought back a lot of old and past lovers, but most of these relationships didn’t probably work out, especially if they were brand new, but there was a reason that you needed to hang out with that person and I’m sure if you don’t already know you will understand it all soon enough!

Mercury went into its complete Retrograde cycle on the 16th! And this Mercury in Retrograde is proving to be quite interesting thus far, it’s time to double-check everything you’re doing even if you think you’ve already done so, at least through December the 6th when this cycle ends. There will be a period of time after December 6th where communications can be kind of wonky, so for two weeks after we just have to get adjusted to Mercury going back to its normal pace, while it’s in it’s after Retrograde “Shadow Period.”



A Look Ahead

The Full Moon occurs on November 23/34, in the sign of Gemini. And you may gain some sort of clarity about an issue in your life. Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors.


The Full Moon occurs on November 23/34, in the sign of Gemini. And you may gain some sort of clarity about an issue in your life. Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors. 


Look for Signs 

Many of you have already been dreaming about your loved ones who have crossed over. 


With the Full Moon in Gemini approaching and Neptune in the sign of Pisces moving forward the same day, many of you will have some sort of visit from your relatives or loves ones in your dreams. It’s actually also pretty common around the Holiday Season and especially during Full Moon’s that people experience some sort of encounter with their loved ones who are passed. 


Often our loved ones come to visit us with messages, but sometimes they just come to check on us as well. And due to how much they are on our minds during the Holidays there’s much more activity when we miss them the most. So look for these visitations to happen more often as the energy of the Full Moon builds starting November 20th until it peaks on the 23rd. This also may include paranormal activity so the spirits can be a bit restless right now, as we did just get through Halloween and the Sun is still in Scorpio, hence it being still Scorpio Season, so the Veils between this world and the other side remains low right through the 25th or so! 


Secrets Exposed! 

The planet Neptune is also going direct on November 24th, so since June 18th, it’s been in Retrograde as well. What’s been hidden, unseen, or unknown is being revealed now, it’s hard to hide from our secrets. The cats out of the bag! So if you’ve already figured something out, then perhaps some of your secrets are out in the open. But there’s still time for some unexpected news or something hidden to come to light. 
Have a good week folks and remember if you have to express yourself right now be tactful and think about what you are saying first!

Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive

Mercury Retrograde Dec 2017

13151765_10153402301541268_3214954786015162635_n

 

The last Mercury Retrograde of 2017 will be in effect from December 3rd through December 22nd, 2017.

Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, it’s a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s a good time to take time off from work if at all possible, and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done. Mercury rules over our lower mind and those energies, so when it’s in a Retrograde cycle we start to perceive things in a very different way.

Mercury in Retrograde, like all Retrograde plants, is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad. Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Retrogrades cycle does is help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this Retrograde takes a hold is that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to re-search, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.

What Not To Do during

Mercury in Retrograde:

– Don’t start brand new projects
– Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
– Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
– Avoid Travel

– Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our communication is foggy and clouded.

What To do during
Mercury in Retrograde:

– Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
– Double Check the Facts and all the info you come by.
– Revisit what you need to, like your work.
– Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
– Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks prior to the actual Retro Cycle.
– Reorganize your daily life routines.
– Declutter.
– Reflect and practice spiritual work.
– Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what no longer is working especially in your intimate relationships.

There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that you just didn’t think about before. Like throwing out the old and organizing our lives. Stay focused on more past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option, and try to let go of any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing.

Mercury is currently in the sign of Sagittarius and this is strong, wild energy. Therefore we will be in for some wild twists and turns along the way as our big ideas come out in the open. The sign of Sagittarius, after all, is the sign that shoots for the stars and thinks anything is possible. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can make some interesting new discoveries.

Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the trickster of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion. Lots of people come back around from our past including ex-lovers. Mercury’s influence seems to bring these chance meetings together.

So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember not to try and rationalize everything. Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, and reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been taken.

This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.

Because we are perceiving things in a different way, the truth tends to come out and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion from December 22nd (its shadow ends on January 18th).

Full Moon Guide by Ruby

 

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!

“New “Super” Moon Day”

Rubys Astro Readings

Thurs, May 25th
“New “Super” Moon Day”
 
The Moon is in Gemini and goes into a NEW MOON CYCLE on May 25, 2017, at 3:45 PM EDT and 2:45 PM CST and 12:44 PM PST
 
A New “Super” Moon comes together in the sign of mentally active Gemini today, this can be a very powerful influence that we get to bask in all the way through Friday night or very early Saturday morning. If you’re a Gemini or not, it doesn’t matter, as all the signs of the Zodiac will be able to tap into this amazing energy and push their dreams forward!
 
This is a new cycle that creates “New Beginnings”, a New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon meet up and make a powerfully strong harmonious connection that generally is favorable. And both the Sun and Moon are in Gemini this month, which is full of gifts and challenges both but is extremely potent due to being a “Super” New Moon, which means it’s a very powerful energy to create the wishes you desire the most and to actually produce results.
 
The New Moon always has a theme and represents the duality between the Sun and Moon, and the zodiac signs they are currently in, which means we have to figure our how to balance these two energies. Since we are already in a place of balancing out our emotions or feelings and thoughts, we can learn how to sync them together. This is the key to success under the New Moon in Gemini.
 
Gemini energy is all about how we communicate with others! So how are your social skills these days? Learn how to listen when others are talking to you, and not just listening to reply. Take in other folks viewpoints, and hear them out and their opinions. It’s important to remember in life to intently listen to others, you can learn an awful lot. This is a good cycle to learn how to communicate in a more friendly way without being rude or threatening.
 
This New Moon’s energy may be felt quite intensely, this can cause over thinking, worrying, and stress! Don’t waste your time or energy on worrying about things that you cannot change. Don’t allow your mind to go off to scattered and in too many different directions, it’s a time to FOCUS, and you may have to redirect yourself over and over again, but that’s ok, focus on the work and tasks at hand and think positive thoughts about everything and everyone.
 
This New Moon energy is a great opportunity to make some serious changes in your life and to start something new and fresh!
 
Under this potent Gemini energy, we have the chance to make some seriously important changes in our lives. It’s time to stop and breathe more deeply and celebrate how your mind takes in all the information the Universe sends you.
 
Because this New Moon is all about the sign of Gemini and its lessons we must look at the way Gemini energy rules over how we think, communicate, express ourselves, and how it rules our way of thinking, and how we process information. It is very important this week that we SPEAK of what we want or choose in a positive manner and that we hold those higher vibrational thoughts! Don’t allow negative thinking to sort of take away from your positive mindset. Don’t let fear or doubt challenge you or your wishes.
 
If you think negative thoughts, say something to take them back by replacing them with something positive and be crystal clear, remember right now especially with the Sun and Moon in Gemini, what we say, do, and think holds tremendous power. Then just repeat the wish you made again, it’s not so easy to retrain your mind, but it can be done, and personally, I just pause and clear my mind before I speak, that is has helped me truly manifest many things in my life.
 
Mastering your thoughts is worth the work because it helps you master your life. Everything we see and all that happens in our lives is a direct result of our manifesting, be it good, bad, or indifferent in one way or another, aware or unaware it was all created in some way by you! Thoughts hold energy, so use raw energy of this New Moon to make the changes in your life around what you think and manifest.
 
Be very clear with your intentions during this New Moon!
 
Both Mercury and Venus are in their own Signs right now, and this is a great strong, potent energy to harness and to be used for rituals or manifesting work. This New Moon cycle also has some strong astrological challenges coming in with it, however, there is a tense connection coming together now between Mars and Saturn. This combo means roadblocks and obstacles are in our way and can break us down before we can get moving forward, so it takes a whole lot of effort on our part (like climbing a brick wall at times), and we must use whatever skills we have to achieve what we want.
 
In Astrology, as in life, it’s important to understand the nature of the challenges we are facing, to better understand the gifts we each possess that will help us overcome these challenges.
Have a Happy New Moon!

Sun in Gemini

Ruby’s Astro Readings

May 20th, 2017
Sun in Gemini

The Sun has now shifted into empathic, mentally strong Gemini where it stays through June 21st.  We are more social, intellectual and just all around curious under this influence. The energies for all of us are very scattered as a result of this curiosity and awareness as we see all our options, and doors suddenly can open and close. We are definitely more chatty and like to communicate more, but we also can be unreliable and unfocused. Emotionally speaking our moods can swiftly change up and down, and even though we may feel more easy-going and active, we’re still more prone to feeling nervous and excitable.

We are highly stimulated and need to talk so we tend to reach out to others and share ideas more during this time. Our thoughts may be quite scattered today. Jumping from one thing to the next involving anything that has to do with communication, like through emails, texts, and phone calls. It’s a great time to channel this energy into a productive activity, catch up with some correspondence or paperwork. This is a good time to multi-task, so it’s ok to do more than one activity at a time. But don’t overdo it, you can’t get it all done at once no matter how hard you try! Trust me! Focus on one thing at a time and you won’t feel so distracted. This is a good time to stay active and busy in.

While the Moon in Gemini we can feel nervous or more restless, so it’s best to keep yourself busy gathering and processing information. Read, write, research, and take care of business or run errands. Make only short-term deals and no long-lasting commitments, because we are supposed to be just collecting information for later.

It’s important to take breaks and get physically active during this time, this will help your mind relax. Be social and look for different and interesting people to mingle with. Your conversations may be quite informative during this cycle of the Sun.

Don’t get too distracted over the next 6 weeks!!! It’s going to be more difficult to focus now, but it is a great time to plan like crazy!

For all the Signs of the Zodiac:
Mars the planet that influences how we move physically, and helps us to feel motivated and passionate, is shifting gears today from fiery go get ’em Aries and into much more breezy and flexible Gemini, where it will stay until June 4th.

While Mars is in Gemini we are much more versatile, but also less determined and focused, and this is going to be the hardest part, we must learn how to stay focused more so under this energy. We are interested in many different things, to the point of going off to do or work on projects in a scattered manner that can be totally ineffective. However, we also may get excited about our amazing ideas and projects during this cycle.

This is a good time to focus on learning, communicating (be-careful with Mercury still in Retro, communication can still be very confusing throughout May) and exchanging ideas. This is a time with lots of MENTAL ENERGY and initiative, and with some degree of conflict as well.

But a new phase is starting for us now so we can feel pulled to different experiences to sort of stand out and do something important. People may feel like they have something important to say, and we realize that other folks have information that is also just as important for us to reach our goals at this time!

Weekend Astro Update 

Astro News

July 2nd

Weekend Update 

The Moon remains in chatty, empathetic Gemini all day long. This energy is stimulating period, it arouses our curiosity and desire for all kinds of different things! This energy has folks talking and communicating about well, just about everything really! We tend to come up with more rational, reasonable thoughts at this time. It’s also a great time to research, read, and write. Collect information and take notes, just don’t commit to anything long- term until after the Moon leaves Gemini, when you will have all the information you need.

The Sun and Saturn meet up today in a more challenging aspect! This can leave us a little worried about our responsibilities, sudden feelings of doubt and worthlessness might set in. Our confidence may take a hit and suddenly we’re not to sure about things. We can lack confidence in ourselves and our abilities, and this can slow us down because we’re more hesitant than usual out of fear that we’ll make a wrong move. The best way to handle this energy is to work on the parts of your life that deal more with structure and maturity!

Later tonight while most folks are trying to get to sleep the Moon will sink into a “Void” cycle, that will only last through Sunday morning, which is just great timing for the “Void”, which is while we’re asleep and not so attached.

Don’t forget the *New Moon* occurs on Monday July 4th, early in the morning in Cancer. So once the Moon moves into its own sign early Sunday morning, you can start to set some powerful intentions with the Universe around your home and family life, and you’ve got 24 hrs so until the New Moon comes exact Monday morning. Make a wish list and please follow my blogs to learn more.

November Full Moon

Wednesday – Astro Alert 
FULL MOON at 4:44pm CST

The Full “Moon comes together Wednesday afternoon and is in curious, Gemini, the sign that constantly collects information, it’s opposing the Sun in adventurous, forward-thinking Sagittarius. Full Moons produce a lot of tense energy, because they’re what’s called an opposition in Astrology, and thid is a challenging or tense energy. But this aspect teaches us how to balance the two opposing energies that are between the Sun and Moon.

This Gemini/Sagittarius aspect basically affects us more mentally, where Gemini represents the “lower mind”, so a more logical way of thinking, and Sagittarius represents the “higher mind”, which helps us to expand our minds, broaden our horizons, and think outside the box. This axis or Full Moon is about the balance between these two different ways of thinking, which is very important because what we think is what energy we attract.

Gemini energy is quite comfortable in its normal routines, processing and sharing information as fast and as much as possible. Sagittarius energy puts us on a mental quest for meaning, it asks us to look beyond facts and learned knowledge, to our life experiences and the wisdom we gain from them.

This Full Moon is inviting us to pay close attention to our thoughts now and balance both of these energies. It’s lighting the way, and shows us how we communicate, and what are attitude looks like. So do we just keep collecting information and spin our own wheels, or do we sometimes take a risk and feed our sense of adventure. We should break out of our comfort zone from time to time and act on these thoughts, this will help bring new energy into our lives…that gives us more depth and meaning. Or are we just simply playing it safe and exsisting in life.

This energy has been building up inside of us, and now it’s time to let it out as the cosmos is demanding! Over the next few weeks we will understand more so what this means. But for now, it’s difficult to sit back on our feelings, we need to express them fully. With the Moon Full and bright in the sky, it’s symbolic for an “illumination” that occurs in our own lives. It’s basically a wake up call, or Ah-Ha moment. However, these feelings or revelations are usually experienced in some sort of emotional way during a Full Moon, and a emotional break down may occur….we suddenly become aware of these feelings and can learn something important. It’s time to let it out and express ourselves, as we need this out of our system. Just remember to use caution while doing so, and know that what we are expressing and releasing isn’t particularly rational yet, not in this Full Moon energy.

A Full Moon sends out very strong emotional energy, and is a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships. It is a time when what we wished for, (aware or not) during the last New Moon (two weeks ago) starts to come together. That’s why we should strive to always be aware and simply ask the Universe for what it is we want during the New Moon, and try to connect daily to our higher-self or higher-power…because our unconscious mind will create something if we’re not choosing our basic desires and wishes. When we’re not consciously choosing what we want, what’s created is usually based out of fear, because the ego (the mind) has taken over and is creating life for us! And stuff shows up that we don’t want or we get the good stuff and in one way or another it slips away. And then we’re left wondering why…its because we have to feed our souls daily, and connect to the Universe at some point!

The Sun also aligns with stern Saturn today and mental Mercury around the time of the Full Moon, so we can be very vocal and our minds are especially full of ideas about the day to day stuff going on in our lives.

Setting Intentions *Full Moon*

image

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to help bless and release whatever you need to let go of, and do away with what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your desires.

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

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 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 surpressed.

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’ll simply be 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 spirituality 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

You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to do your work at, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is why you feel so comfortable in your favorite chair, because it’s feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.

Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes and questions. 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 into your life and be detailed, but don’t go overboard. Leave room for the energies to shift, change and mold what you’re creating.

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here’s some helpful questions you can think about … for example; ask what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and future, and what energy you’d like to create over the next month.

Step four: Visualize what you’re creating

Now you’re going to visualize what you’ve written. 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. Just don’t think it, make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.

Allow the Universe to show you what paths to follow over the next 30 days, and let the Full Moon light up the path you are supposed to be going down, so you may bring in what you truly desire, while letting go of what you don’t need.
