Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Astro Alert
Mercury in Leo
Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury enters the sign of proud and expressive Leo today! This transit will be in this sign until September 5th, which is longer than usual due to Mercury going Retrograde, from July 25 through August 18, which is usually a challenging time. But this blog is about Mercury’s time in the sign of Leo, which affects all of us!

With Mercury in the sign of Leo our thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect, and can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us or is not listening to what we are saying. One thing we should be careful of especially once the Sun Enters Leo around July 22nd is just how aggressive, pushy, and over bearing we can get. There will be a whole lot of Leo energy swirling around and this means some folks won’t know how to handle this fiery energy, so be mindful and if you feel like your going to Roar take a break and get space!

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent the goal, the better. This cycle can help you organize your thoughts to concentrate for long periods of time, which can help you meet your goals. Our minds our full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance, and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Our minds may just naturally go to the positive, so we can be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, even though on occasion we can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and to forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy, but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well.

We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more then usual. Also watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up over sharing with the wrong people.

With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about who we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.

It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar level. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.

After working hard we also will feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love we can become quite irritated and lonely.

Mars In Retrograde – “A Slow Down”

Rubys Astro Alert
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius
“A Slow Down”
Well here we are folks, yet another planet is going into Retrograde! This time it’s Mars. Unlike when Mercury goes Retrograde, and the world’s electronics tend to go wonky, we will need to pay extra attention to our “actions” because Mars rules over our passions, drive, motivation, and physical movement!
With Mars in Retrograde moving in any direction can be difficult. This is a time when we seem to struggle with getting tasks done or we leave things incomplete. Instead of moving around physically, we tend to travel more mentally. It’s a good time to redo, renovate, and repair things instead of pushing to move forward and taking on new projects!
~Mars will be in its Retrograde cycle from June 26th through August 27th!
The planet Mars moves fast so it only goes Retrograde every two years! It’s probably a good idea to think first before starting anything and when taking certain actions, because this cycle tends to lower our energy levels and can cause frustrations as obstacles come up around whatever we make an effort to get done. Most Astrologers agree that during Mars Retrograde we should be extra cautious and if at all possible avoid activities that are considered to be risky or demanding. Lots of folks end up in minor accidents or fail to judge a situation correctly during this time.
Even during this Planetary cycle, life goes on!
For 11 weeks while Mars is Retrograde, we will have to make important decisions even though it’s not the best time. So for example, if you’re unemployed, you’re going to want to accept a new job offer. During Mars Retro you probably will feel the same lack of energy or vitality in any part of your life your take on. So for this reason alone, it’s not the best time to start anything brand new, whether it’s a job, relationship, (sexual or otherwise) or even an argument. If you’ve already started something before this cycle began, it is time to slow down, cool yourself off, and reassess what you want and desire for now before taking any further action.
It’s also not a great time to enter a sexual relationship, committed or not. But most of us don’t want to be celibate, so you probably won’t be. But if you’re planning any important events make sure to pick a time when the planetary influences are working to your advantage, and for some, the Retrogrades are a better time, but let me point out that it’s rare!! But if you pay attention to the planets or have an Astrologer on hand you’ll learn how different planetary cycles affect you.
The bottom line is while Mars is Retrograde its energy is lacking, and this is the planet of Physical Energy, so this is why starting any “new” sexual relationships are seen as being an issue. It’s doubtful once this cycle is over your desire for someone new will continue, or they might feel differently and you can end up breaking off entirely or worse being “ghosted” by your new lover.
However, it’s actually a good time to figure out what you do want around the parts of our lives that Mars rules over such as what makes you feel passionate, driven, sexual, or angry! Even if you have to wait until after this cycle is over to go after it! This is a highly intense energy, which means it’s a good time to wait things out because most anything you start during this cycle will be short-lived. The Universe might grab your attention and lead you towards someone, but this doesn’t mean you should act on it immediately! Take a step back from starting anything brand-new or making any permanent plans until the end of August when Mars is back on track heading in the right direction once again.
This change in energy isn’t to reach a final destination point, it’s not something that lasts, so we shouldn’t change course or stray too far from our normal routines. This includes starting new jobs or relationships! Even though at first it may seem amazing, later on once Mars is back to normal things can happen. It’s important not to jump or to be impulsive just to be with someone new or start up something completely different. We should take into consideration all the planets that are currently in their Retrograde cycles and how this affects us and our lives.
Timing is important even if you work very hard and feel like you’re prepared to go after what you want to accomplish, but if your timing is off you may not get things done or succeed. So for most of us, it’s best to wait until after Mars goes direct on August 27, and start new things at that time.
It just might be a time that when we must work on adjusting our expectations and calmly moving through our frustrations that get in the way of what it is we really want to accomplish. Therefore, if you have activities you want to start, take a step back and re-consider them first. Take this time to pause and reflect on your life and what your next moves will be, then once Mars is back direct you’ll be ready to go!

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!

Astro News with Ruby

ASTRO NEWS
By Ruby

It’s been a busy week on the Astrological front with the Cosmos making some pretty big shifts!

There’s been a lot of chaos over this last week, and this Sunday another planet is about to make a major move. Pluto, will start moving backward just like Saturn and Jupiter and into its Retrograde cycle.

By this summer there will be 8 planets in Retrograde, and that’s a whole lot of energy moving backward, so our lives really will slow down!

This Pluto Retrograde cycle gives us a chance to look back over the past four months, to look over our past accomplishments, and our failures as well. There’s a whole lot of revising and reassessing going on, and some of you are starting to feel blocked or restricted. The planet Pluto represents things like transformation, power struggles, and evolution. Over the next few months is a good time to think about what you’d like to let go of and release from your life, your mind, and your heart. Then you can do something with what you’ve learned once Pluto and Saturn move forward again from their Retrograde cycles in September.

Is there a bad habit you can’t quit or are you stuck in a job you can’t stand? Maybe you want out of a toxic situation or relationship. Pluto Retrograde shows you what you need to release and let go of.

~Sunday will be especially intense with Saturn, Pluto, and Mars all in the sign of Capricorn. But the whole weekend may be a bit much to handle.

The best way to describe how Pluto Retrograde affects you is to understand your personal relationship with your own power, or the power that resides inside you! This is a time where you can explore your Soul and recognize what you have control over, and especially what you don’t.

Over the next four months you can learn how to not resist or completely let go of what you can’t control, and surrender. Try not to fight it! If you happen to be in a one-sided relationship and the other person is not showing you by the actions they’re taking that they really want to be with you, then it’s time to let it go! And if you’ve been on a certain path for some period of time and trying to accomplish something and it’s not happening, let it go! The Pluto Retrograde cycle between now and September can help you see if you are on the right path or not. Just pay attention to the blocks your up against or if things are falling into place. The Universe will give you clear signs and messages.

The good thing is a few days ago the Sun moved into the sign of Taurus, and you’ll like this energy much better than the past several weeks. It will be a calmer and hopefully peaceful energy.

On Sunday Pluto begins its Retrograde cycle until late September. It’s a time to begin a very personal self-analysis.

On Monday Mars makes a nice connection to Jupiter which can make us feel excited and inspired to do something new.

April 24th the planet Venus will move into the sign of Gemini. The Gemini Sun folks might really enjoy this three-week cycle. While the rest of us can have a really good time.

Venus makes a challenging connection to Wounded Chiron, and our relationships can be painful, so it’s time to have a chat perhaps and begin some deeper healing this week.

Pay attention on April 25-27, when Mars makes a strong conjunction. This will be a strong time for arguments, power struggles, and even fights. Watch for others who like to cause drama and for those who tend to already be unhinged or hot-headed. It’s all about how you choose to react!

Positive New Moon Ahead

Astro News By Ruby
Positive New Moon Ahead

A harmonious NEW MOON comes together on December 18 & 19, and in the sign of adventurous Sagittarius, which makes it the best time for all of the signs of the Zodiac to reflect on what it is they truly want to let go of or release, and what they want to open up to and create space for. The New Moon is our gift from the Cosmos, so allow this harmonic energy to bring something special to you during this Holiday Season. Stay open to the possibilities.

The New Moon in Sagittarius is going to be smack in between the goddess of love, Venus, and Saturn the lord of Karma. Saturn is just about to shift into Capricorn from Sagittarius itself, and he won’t be back in Sagittarius for nearly 30 years! With Saturn, Venus, and Uranus all working together in harmony, we can expect this New Moon to create some seriously positive change within our relationships and around some of our financial situations.

Setting Intentions

I say it over and over again, the best time to set powerful intentions during a lunar month is at the time of the New Moon! This is the when the Sun and the Moon meet in their most harmonious union. Take some time to make out a wish list and set your powerful intentions, and if you’d like to know what this lovely New Moon symbolizes for you, then purchase a “New Moon Report” from me.

You can email, message, or even text me and ask me, “How will the New Moon benefit me? healingruby@yahoo.com

New Lessons Are Coming!

We can look at December 18-20 as a turning point, a chapter is closing that is full of lessons and challenges you have experienced over the past three years while Saturn was in the sign of Sagittarius. On Dec 20, Saturn moves into the sign of Capricorn for the first time since the late 1980’s. There are new lessons and challenges we must work on now, but you’ll have three whole years to complete them, so until December 2020.

If you have passed Saturn’s challenges over the last three years look for rewards and blessings to show up! Saturn in Capricorn will bring new and different kinds of Karmic issues into our lives. Wherever Saturn moves in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart” is the part of your life this energy will affect and is where that fate awaits you. This is also the part of life where you will be examining your goals and relationships and much more.

If you’d like to know just what lessons Saturn has in store for you over the next three years, please order an Extended New Moon report, and I will add the extra information all about Saturn and what you should expect. I will do the research into your personal “Astrology Birth Chart” and send all your information via email in a nice detailed report that’s full of all kinds of Astrological information to help you get through the rest of the year and into 2018!

Holiday Season

The best days to get that Holiday shopping done is December the 17 & 23, and then around the 27 & 28 for those of you who celebrate or observe other Holidays.

Mercury is in Retrograde just through the 22nd so you might have some issues with any new electronics and devices you buy during this time. Just keep receipts and warranties in place!

Also, this can be a good time to get a good deal on electronics, not just because of the Holidays but due to Mercury being in Retro, just be careful Mercury is the trickster of the Zodiac and you must keep your wits about you if don’t want to get taken!

Traveling during a Mercury in Retrograde phase isn’t ideal and coupled with it being the Holiday Season doesn’t make it any better! So expect travel delays, this is normal at this time. Try to not be inflexible, roll with it and come up with backup plans ahead of time, it could seriously help you make this time saner so you can enjoy your holiday.

This also means the weather will get a little crazy, which has already begun since Mercury went into its Retro cycle last week, with 10 inches of snow in Georgia to the fires in California. Packages and mail may get delayed, so get your stuff out early just in case. Do not wait till the last minute this Holiday Season, because some deliveries will be slowed down and some companies will even cancel out orders due to being so overwhelmed by all this energy, especially the week before Christmas.

Hang in there folks and keep your mind and hearts open.

Happy Holidays

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).

New Moon Nov. 18th

New Moon Nov. 18th, 2017 in Scorpio

Central Time – November 18, 5:42 AM Eastern Time – November 18, 6.42 AM. Pacific Time – November 18th, 3:42 AM Mountain Time – November 18, 4:42AM

The New Moon occurs on November 18th in the sign of Scorpio, which gives us the power to regenerate not only ourselves but our lives. Use this highly potent energy to get unstuck or break free from what’s stagnant in your life.

This New Moon is all about transformation therefore it can help you in your personal intimate relationships. But this can also apply to the relationships you have with friends, co-workers, family members, and business partners. This New Moon is a connection between the Moon and the Sun, both in the sign of Scorpio. This energy can help rejuvenate you and your life. If you’re having sexual, emotional, or financial problems this influence can help, as it’s a time of renewal!

The best way to use this Scorpion magical regenerative energy is to simply lighten up folks, simply soften your demeanor. Don’t be so on guard or defensive, work at being vulnerable and share parts of yourself with those you trust. This is all about letting go of the control you think you have, because really that’s an illusion. Surrender any issues you have with control to the New Moon and be open to the Universe helping you!

Since we are already in Scorpio Season and there are so many planets currently in Scorpio, we are reminded that all things must end or die off and chapters must close. This influence may bring up issues around your own immortality and inevitable death. This isn’t meant to be depressing or scary, but to inspire you to live your life while you’re here on the planet with happiness and passion, and show your appreciation and gratitude for what and who you have in your life now in the present!

During the Dark Moon or New Moon in Scorpio, we are in a darkend state of seeing and feeling, this isn’t an evil kind of darkness but an awakening, it helps us to sense what we can’t see or feel or what we don’t know!

This is a time to renew your commitment to your life. Under the water sign of Scorpio, we feel things on a very deep level and can uncover our motivation, truth, and desire by exploring these deep emotional waters. You must understand your truth and desire, as it may not make sense to your ego or mind.

Therefore you have to be taken out of your comfort zone to get it! Basically, if what we truly desire doesn’t frighten us even a little then it’s probably not going to keep us motivated to go after what we want!

During this New Moon, the planets Mars and Pluto, which are both rulers of Scorpio are involved in a tense square. This influence is about being in Control and how to tap into your power. This aspect can challenge and test us around anything we have power over, so it’s about how we wield power when issues get stirred up in our lives and how avoid powerless feelings and behaviors.

Feeling powerless can actually help you learn. As some folks tend to go above and beyond to prove themselves, as their focus is on the struggle and competition in their lives constantly. But the other half of you might end up giving up on your dreams or desires altogether, which just means your reliving old patterns around being victimized in some way.

With this New Moon in Scorpio, being put in a position of power can lead to manipulation and all the shadowy stuff that comes along with it. The New Moon in Scorpio is trying to teach us how to handle our own personal power without abusing others!

It’s important to embrace and face our fears now, as the mystery and magic behind this very powerful influence can help us push past our ego’s needs and put us on a path towards life-changing transformations, so in other words we have a real opportunity to change things on a deep soul level.

It’s a great time to do New Moon energy work. Make out a simple Wish list or Write down your intentions, think about what it is your truly desire and dream of and call that energy into your life! There is no better time than the present to get to work around loving your life!

Happy New Moon Blessings

Mercury enters Sagittarius

Rubys Astro Readings
23131009_10154739399681268_3983787788823961633_n

 

Mercury enters Sagittarius
Mercury is the planet that rules over how we think, process information, and communicate. This influence affects each and every one of us, no matter what Zodiac sign you are.

Mercury shifts from deeper thinking Scorpio into more adventurous, optimistic Sagittarius today, November 5th, 2017! This is an energy we definitely need, as things have been getting way too serious for a while now with the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter also in Scorpio. We need to lighten up folks, and this energy certainly can help that along.

Mercury will be in Sagittarius much longer than it’s usual 3-week stay, so until January 11th. Why is this? Because it’s that time again, oh yea, *heavy sigh*, when Mercury goes into its Retrograde cycle in December! (the pre-shadow period starts in a few weeks, and personally, I feel some of us are already feeling it!)

With Mercury shifting from deeper thinking Scorpio into more hopeful Sagittarius, our thinking also shifts from a deep psychological place and into a more lit up hopeful place. There’s a stronger desire to learn about a wide range of topics, so even though we don’t go as deep, we learn what we need to know right now or in the moment. Our thinking is more hopeful, optimistic, and our faith can increase during this time, as we seek our higher ideals. This influence also can help restore our belief system and can bring hope in our everyday thoughts and lives.

Balance and fairness also become quite important during this time, but we are not so good at paying attention to the details and certain things may be overlooked, and it doesn’t help that we can be in a big hurry under this influence! So pay attention to avoid mistakes or issues. We feel brave and courageous, so it’s easier to assert our independence, and question why we are depending on anyone but ourselves. Don’t go overboard during this time just to go’ it alone, or just because you have such a strong need to break free from certain situations or people! Remember, we need other people if we like it or not.

This is a time when we are expanding our mental horizons. There will be a whole new set of interests that might become of special importance to you, topics like religion, spiritual beliefs, philosophy, law, and education just to name a few. There’s a strong pull to meet up with folks from faraway lands, and our curiosity is so strong we can end up traveling. But often the trips we end up taking are the far away adventures in our minds. We want to get out and experience life, learn and grow during this time, so enjoy all of this magical fresh energy with Mercury in Sagittarius has to offer.

But we also should prepare for Mercury’s Retrograde cycle coming in December, so stay up to date by reading my Daily Astro Blogs. I will have more on the upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle soon.

“Setting Intentions w/ the NEW MOON”

“Setting Intentions w/ the NEW MOON”
October 19th, 2017

 

There’s a New Moon occurring in Libra, Thursday, October 19th, which makes this the best time of the month to set some powerful intentions around your future goals with the Universe and work a little magic!

 

The Moon goes into the Void cycle around 2pm CST and 3pm EST Thursday afternoon, but it won’t switch signs until around 8:45pm CST and 9:45pm EST, and then will move into Taurus!

 

*Setting Intentions*

During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have and work on manifesting what energy we want to come in next. What I mean by that is we can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, love, it doesn’t really matter, but we have to do some things to make it really happen. And no not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But at least you’ll be placed on the right path towards your destination!

 

By “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there.

 

The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of beginnings when you can recharge goals or set new ones. During the New Moon, we often experience an “energy shift.”

 

Here are some ideas on what to Manifest under a New Moon:

 

1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.

 

2. Share your intention with someone in a supportive way, and who will be encouraging.

 

3. Do something today to demonstrate your commitment to your intention.

 

4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.

 

So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask the New Moons energy 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 be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, but we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for… and sometimes magic just happens.

 

What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New 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 New 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 upon your guides, Angels, or higher power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared, 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 “New Moon” Ritual and again burn some special incense, light some candles (and colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever colors or tools that make you feel calm, centered, happy, and peaceful.


Step Three: Setting Your Intentions-Making Wishes with the Moon

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

Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life and be detailed.

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are 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 calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to create? Think about your long-term goals and future and what you’d like that to look like over the next month. Be careful about focusing on the how, why, and when of your goals, focus more on what it is you’re wanting and how you want to feel. Let the Universe take care of the rest.


Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, so 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 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 which paths to follow over the next 30 days, and then allow the New Moon to light up those paths that you are supposed to be going down, so you may bring in what you truly desire, and let go of what you don’t want, it’s not serving your higher good and it’s blocking you from your desires.

MERCURY ENTERS SCORPIO

MERCURY ENTERS SCORPIO

By Ruby

Mercury is in Scorpio from October 17-November 5, 2017.

Mental Mercury (the planet that rules over our thoughts & communication) shifts, as it moves into more soul-searching Scorpio.

Our communications take a drastic shift from keeping the peace while Mercury was in balancing Libra, and now into pulling out what’s hidden or repressed while in Scorpio. Just like how the #metoo movement is taking off in Hollywood now, anything that has caused trauma will be lite up by giant Jupiter, now also in Scorpio.

With Mercury in Scorpio, our thinking runs very deep and intense. The truth of the matter is very important, as we become observers and can be obsessive in our pursuits. Just don’t push things to the point of insanity and know when to back off. It can prove difficult to say enough is enough.

During this time our thoughts and the way we communicate will be more deep and intense, and usually we like to chat a lot under these influences, because we are searching for what’s hidden or repressed psychologically. While Mercury was in Libra we were more about balancing our minds, while.coming up with simple but fair solutions to our problems.

Mercury in Scorpio is more natural, but has a darker attitude, so you may feel like things aren’t fair. The truth is what’s important now, as we look underneath it all! This is a time to let yourself investigate, observe, and really focus. Our never ending search for something more deep can be exhausting, but it satisfies our minds to simply know. Whatever is fake or false in our lives just won’t due, we are looking for what is authentic, especially around communicating, so our conversations can go much deeper.

This Scorpio energy helps us stay more sharp than usual, our minds our profound and quite analytical, which leads to one-track minded and even obsessive thinking. Better learn now while we get into so many planets in Scorpio, just how stop yourself. This energy can have you talking for days and not knowing when to stop yourself, so pay attention, and if you are talking someone’s ear off, rein yourself back in and take a breather. You can emotionally, under this particular influence, mentally exhaust yourself and others
