Pluto Retrograde


Rubys Astro Readings

“Personal Power”
Contrary to popular belief the planet Pluto affects our lives and even though it’s far away in the cosmos, it’s a very powerful force to be reckoned with indeed and takes us through major psychological transformations and powerful resurrections while we are here on this journey. So even though the scientist argue if Pluto is big enough to be considered a “Planet”, most Astrologers agree that its influence is significant and a powerful part of who we are!
Pluto is completely still at this time and will turn RETROGRADE TODAY all the way through September 27th. So yes folks, that’s yet another planet going into its Retrograde cycle to add to the list along with Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn. And Venus just came out of her Retro cycle a few days ago, but she is till quite testy trying to get back to normal, which is affecting relationships in a big bad way right now!
Pluto’s influence is a seriously intense complex energy, and we might feel this sort of heaviness while under this influence over the coming months. Pluto Retro cycle runs all the way through September 28th so we will go through a process of learning how we use or abuse our own personal power! It might actually be easier for some folks because they may not be as power hungry for control during this time, and will be less in touch with their own power and choose to ignore it during this cycle.
Pluto’s Retrograde cycle is a process of growth that teaches us to hold onto our personal power, but some folks will attempt to steal your power during this cycle! Remember you can’t lose your power, but it can be taken, so it’s up to you to not give it away! Hopefully, you will come to this realization during this cycle. There might be circumstances that arise that force us to fight those who attempt to take our power or lessen our self-worth in some way, but you will get stronger and can feel empowered by the time this cycle is over when Pluto moves forward once again.
Also, remember that when you release your past emotional wounds or trauma, you will raise your vibration and any old energy will die off allowing new more positive energy to flow in. This newer energy can bring about changes that are rough along with tests and challenges, but it also provides us with new opportunities for growth and harmony once the challenges are over.

2017 A New Year!

A New Year!
And your New Year’s Resolutions
By Ruby


The general attitude about 2016 is that it was a very bad year, and with all of the celebs deaths alone it has been very difficult. Many of my clients have lost loved ones this year as well, so it’s been quite disheartening. 2016 has been a year full of challenges and endings for many folks. But 2017 is predicted to be a much happier overall healthier year! Let’s look at this more closely. The Numerology of 2016 equals to a Number 9 year, which is a year of endings, restrictions, and even death. This is the reason why there have seen so many folks crossing over these last few weeks, it is the Number 9 energy coming to a close. This energy is pushing souls to make their transition as we get closer to the end of this cycle. It seemed over the past week nearly every day we have had to say farewell to a beloved celebrity.

A soul knows what it is here to do and experience, such as the case with Carrie Fisher’s passing last week and her mother, legendary actress Debbie Reynold’s. Debbie’s last words before her death were that she wanted to be with Carrie. A mother and daughter soul mate relationship who clearly held a special relationship in this world and in eternity. It’s bittersweet but is an example of how the Souls purpose plays itself out. Who knows now what these two will do together in the afterlife, we probably will never know but one thing is for certain it’s important that they do it together!

This year has been a heavy Karmic year, as many folks have expressed to me just how challenging it has been. There’s a shift coming, a change! The good news is that 2017 is a Number 1 Year, a year of new beginnings, which gives us hope and a renewed perspective. So it’s time to leave the past behind, let go of your disappointments and think about what it is you really want for 2017! I really am looking forward to what 2017 has in store for me and all of you, and I am making personal goals a priority for the coming year.

Why don’t New Year’s resolutions work!
One way for an Astrologer to see how your year is going to go is to look at a person’s personal Natal Chart at the very beginning of the year, to see where the best aspects of the year are going to be for success. As the Cosmos moves it interacts with the planetary energy you were born under and creates opportunities, opposition, good fortune, and challenges. Knowing this information can help you make out your Resolution List/Wish List! It’s much easier to stick with goals and plans in the area of your life where the Universe is already working with you, helping you create what you want rather than having you climb an uphill battle trying to create something the energies aren’t supporting.

If you would like to know what your personal Astrology chart looks like for 2017, and I can also help you with a personal Resolutions List, order a “One Question Reading” with me, just ask me, “What should I be manifesting in 2017?” Why waste all that time and energy on something that may not develop properly? Instead, place your efforts on the areas of your life that the Universe can help bring you the most success in return. Happy New Year!


Evolve! Jupiter/Pluto Square

There is a tense long-term square between Jupiter and Pluto that’s starting to form together now that is extremely powerful. This is the first connection of three in a series, that runs all the way through August of 2017! And we have already witnessed what this powerful energy can do thus far.

Jupiter is about growth, expansion, excess, and benefits.
Pluto is about power, transformation, struggle, and obstacles.
With this connection, Jupiter is under great stress and is in a challenging connection with Pluto.

We actually just got out from under a long-term aspect between the Sun and powerful Pluto that played a big role in our lives through most of 2016! But it looks like Pluto is back once again and this time it’s challenging larger than life Jupiter. Even though the Election is over, Pluto’s influence brings about strong power struggles as we are experiencing now. Pluto rules over hidden agendas and often revenge. All the tension and arguing is living proof of just how this aspect is already affecting us and what it can do! There won’t be any easy solutions now. The United States and the World are under deep psychotherapy through August of 2017!

Pluto’s energy brings about a purging of the deeper, darker more negative side of humanity. So we are made to deal with our shadow-self under this influence, and the most difficult issues that we might be refusing to deal with or that have been kept repressed or hidden. This influence is now in our face and we haven’t a choice but to deal with these issues or suffer some consequences.

This influence actually does have a positive effect as well. It gives us the energy to chase our ambitions and make important changes to end things that aren’t working for us anymore. If you have any unfinished business or projects to wrap up, now is the time to get them done and completed.

Karma comes about quick and swiftly for those folks who have chosen to either misuse or abuse their power! The karmic debt will be paid by many, so it’s a good time to redeem yourself in some way if need be and make things right! Relationships and partnerships can also get hit pretty hard under this influence. There can be power struggles among lovers, family, close friends, and business partners. Some folks will have to deal with issues around money, joint resources, inheritances, and other people’s money.

The Jupiter/Pluto Square peaks on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th, so it’s important to be aware of just how powerful this connection is and how it might affect you. It will take a few weeks for this energy to sort of calm back down, but keep in mind it’s a long-term aspect, so whatever it starts will have to run its course. And then it will come back together again two more times through August of 2017!

*Cancer Sun Signs, pay attention!*
*Those born (June 21st – July 22nd) need to understand this connection can be a thorn in your side. You may have to stand up for yourself and what you truly believe in during this time. Anyone who is close to a Cancer might want to remind themselves that their crab maybe extra moody and tense during this time. If things get to be too overwhelming to deal with, take a step away and breathe! Allow them to do what they need to. You may have to give in a little with them for now, but if you care about them then it’s worth it! Right?*

Also take note that the United States is considered in astrology to be a Sun Sign Cancer! Wow huh! America is going through it now! First with all the election tension, and now continued with the one group who holds the most “Power” over the people, our government! It’s pretty evident that this country is under great strain and tension right now, no matter what side of the fence you are on, we all are experiencing this energy as a nation.

The Jupiter/Pluto Square can cause feelings of being blocked or restricted in some way. Folks can suddenly decide to block you from expanding your ideas or reaching your goals, during this cycle. Even though this can be a difficult time, there is another astrological connection that comes together just one week after Thanksgiving, involving Jupiter once again and authoritative Saturn. This influence ushers in a more positive energy that can help clean up some of the mess the Jupiter/Pluto Square has caused. In the meanwhile, through the end of November, there may be tensions in our relationships, as they can be tested quite strongly. Some will be faced with making very difficult decisions that require determination to get through. There can be just one person within a relationship who seems to give in and up, for the sake of keeping the relationship together in the long-run. Sacrifice and forgiveness are very important during this time.

No matter what part of your personal Astrology “Birth Chart” the Jupiter/Pluto Square is cruising through, it will affect some area of your life! The key to success is in the knowing of just which part, then you are better able to deal with whatever challenges might come your way.

How to get through the Jupiter/Pluto Square: Here is a list of what seems to be the areas of our lives most affected by this influence.

Work or place of employment; the following issues might come up.

– Misuse of Power
– Change in Ranks – a new supervisor or manager comes in
– Ego’s inflated and out of control
– Setbacks and/or obstacles that hold you back
– Not able to move forward in your career
– Feeling stuck or stagnate at work
– Being blocked from reaching full potential or growth
– People in positions of power taking advantage of other employees, like bosses, clients,         and co-workers
– Taking on too much responsibility
– Overwhelmed with work
– Other employees passing their work or responsibilities off on you.

The best way to handle issues involving your work or career;

– Be open to new ideas around your work or career.
– Perhaps look for new work or different job
– Disconnect from work related issues, if you stay at your job.
– Go to work, get paid, go home during this time, change of attitude.
– Remember this won’t last for too long
– Choose battles wisely

Intimate Relationship Issues; this energy can really affect all our relationships, so we must be careful of the following.

– Stress
– Partners jumping to conclusions
– Questioning each other’s motives
– Feelings of anger and jealousy
– Hurting your partner in some way
– Power struggles
– Fighting for independence within the relationship
– Unrealistic Expectations around your partner
– Old wounds and past relationship issues being brought back up

Remedies to keep our relationships good:

– Listen to your partner
– Let your partner be heard
– Communication
– Don’t be rude or mean
– No ignoring the issues or each other
– Do not disconnect from each other emotionally
– Get space if needed

Health issues that may come from this aspect are as follows;

– Issues with fatigue
– Feeling ran down and unmotivated
– Irritability
– Anxiety
– Unusual feelings of Frustration or Anger

Ways to Keep Yourself Healthy;

– Get plenty of rest
– Take time to yourself to relax
– Meditation
– Support Adrenal Glands

All astrological aspects or connections have both a positive and negative affect on us, some are more challenging and others more harmonious. With lucky Jupiter involved in this particular aspect, we should look to what the bigger picture is in regards to whatever situation we are thrown into. This Square can bring out the best and worst in us, as we have just started to experience its influence. (The US elections have been very much affected by this energy.) It’s been rough stuff for some of you already! Focus on the higher purpose and what lessons this square is trying to teach you. With these particular planets involved, the Universe is trying to get you to make some much-needed changes in your life, so this influence will shake you up to make sure you get it done. But this aspect can teach some very valuable lessons.

It’s important that we look towards the light at the end of the “astrological” tunnel now because we won’t be under this energy forever! This energy has already begun and will run its course at least through November, and do remember whatever issues it brings out will have to be dealt with or you may have even more problems, so deal with the issues that come up during this time. The most important thing we can do now is to focus on just how we choose to handle the lessons that come our way. Be kind, open-minded, and respectful in all that you do and you’ll get through this time much more easily! Don’t fight it, Deal with it!

The Jupiter/Pluto Square is so strong that it can actually help us, and we may feel more passionate and driven. So take this opportunity to chase dreams and goals. It can bring in an energy that’s more hopeful, as we can feel enthusiastic once again about our lives. It gets our blood pumping! Especially, if you do something in a big way, that’s more meaningful. Our relationships can grow and evolve due to the lessons this energy dishes out. And finally, remember all of this is part of our growing pains world we are in right now, and it can be kind of scary and extremely stressful, just like being a teenager! Evolving and growing up is never easy but it’s worth it!

Nov 16 – Astro Update

November of 16 – Astrological Update

by Ruby


 During the month of November, we get a chance to transform something and this can help us make a stronger than usual connection to our higher self or spiritual self. For the next three weeks, the Sun in Scorpio will influence us strongly. This gives us a chance to continue breaking down whatever isn’t working in our lives, so that we may rebuild it later and hopefully make something better and solid for the future. We just might even get a second chance at something, a do-over if you will. So don’t miss out on this opportunity!

It’s a great time to try some daily affirmations around what you are trying to let go of or what isn’t working  for you anymore. Take some time to ask the Universe to help you release the old and let some better energy in to take its place. So create this space for something or someone better to come along!
There are some strong, potent and intense cosmic influences coming together this month that we should pay extra attention too. Here’s a rundown for now, and I will have more details as we get closer to each influence. Scorpio energy is at its strongest during November, (for all of the signs of the zodiac) and it will be intense at times as our intuition can be very strong.

Mars moves into Aquarius
Taurus “SUPER” Full Moon rare event
Neptune Goes Direct From Retrograde
Jupiter squares Pluto
Sagittarius “New” Moon

This Weekend Nov. 4th – 6th, is when lovely Venus makes a connection to stimulating Uranus. It’s just a rule of thumb to “expect the unexpected” when the planet Uranus is involved. This connection brings in love and money in a more positive often surprising way. Some of you could end up getting quite lucky around either one, this energy makes this weekend rather exciting and fun! Committed lovers could come together strong this weekend, and all you single folks could potentially meet a new romance very randomly, sort of out of the blue.
Once every couple of years an exciting connection occurs when fiery, action-packed Mars shifts into the sign of Aquarius! This energy will come together November 8th. Even though this can put us at a crossroads, it also can be an exhilarating and exciting time! Over the next 6 weeks, one area of your life will be lit up by Mars and will become very active. There can be a situation where you will have to make an important decision, as this energy starts to manifest very quickly, so let this play itself out and hang on for the ride!
If we pay attention to where Aquarius falls in our own personal “Astrology Birth Charts”, we can know exactly what area of our lives this influence will affect, therefore this helps us know what areas of our lives to focus on and accomplish what we can. This energy starts Nov. 8th and runs through mid-December. For example, if this aspect falls in the area of your career then you need to focus on making changes and start updating your resume during this time. The shift will be felt by all of us, and you will get a chance to get on a new path if you choose over the next six weeks, depending on what part of your life this energy is affecting.
Every couple of years no matter what your zodiac sign happens to be, you’ll get a chance to follow a new path, and maybe make a wish come true. All of your hard work can finally pay off in one specific area of your life. The part of your personal “Astrology Birth Charts” that is ruled by Aquarius is where you’ll be most affected, so this is going to be different for everyone. This can create new job opportunities for some, and others might meet someone special and start a new romantic relationship, and for some, this is the perfect time to lose weight and to work on getting healthier. Stay focused and don’t scatter your energy all over the place this month. Take one thing or issue on at a time and you’ll get rewarded by the Universe for all your efforts over this next six weeks!
If you aren’t too sure where your focus should be this month, you can purchase a “One Question” Reading and just ask me “Where’s my focus supposed to be during Mars in Aquarius?” I will do the research for you, with your personal “Astrology Chart” and get back to you via email. And if you read this you can ask ONE “Second Question” for 1/2 off, only if you purchase them together. (One Question Readings can only be about ONE specific topic.)
Also, Venus the planet of love will be shifting into earthy, self-sufficient Capricorn for about 3 weeks on the 11th. This can bring good relationship Karma for all you Capricorn’s out there! So get out and mingle this month.
There are three main astrological influences coming into play this month that we should look at.
First off, on November 18th an important connection between spiritual Neptune and the South Node (our destiny) comes together. You might want to save this date on your calendar because this energy can affect us profoundly! This aspect can create great things in our lives or cause us some problems, depending on what you learn and do with the info you receive. Things will be very different as our perception is almost altered around this time. Something might happen that forces you to look at a person or situation in a whole new light, so your opinions may change as well.
As these planets get stimulated again, it’s a good time to think about changing direction in some area of your life. We’ve already been feeling this strong intense energy as Jupiter opposes Uranus, and makes a tense connection to Pluto creating a T-square! This is extremely tense energy, and many of us are being pushed by it all ready to change something in our lives and stand up for what we believe in! This is strong in the US now, and will continue to build and get stronger through next week, what an amazing, exciting time to be alive on this planet!
The strongest part of these energies coming together will be on Thanksgiving Day when powerful Pluto connects to larger than life Jupiter! This is a powerful connection and energy that is put forth. But it can show us what to expect for 2017. It’s time to let go of old ways of doing things and release old family patterns, and this can bring out some issues among family members on Turkey Day, so know what upsets you and triggers you and avoid those that can set you off!
The Universe’s message to us for November of 2016 is it is time for Transformation, it’s time to evolve and evolution isn’t easy, in fact, it is quite painful in my opinion, growing sometimes hurts and is full of lessons, so if you like it or not this is the path we have been set on now, this is our destiny! So get on board and create the changes you want to see happen on the planet, don’t sit this out and let things just happen to you, because that would imply you are a victim, and no one likes being a victim to anything.
I will continue to write and explain these cosmic influences in detail for you, breaking down one or more aspects at a time, so you can better understand what they mean and how they will be affecting you! But for now, this weekend can be exciting and fun, so enjoy it!

Karma of 2016


Weekend Astro Update
“2016 Karma”
By Ruby

The term Karma means for every action there is a reaction! Good, bad or indifferent. So for everything you put out you get back. Paybacks can be wonderful or they can be difficult, based on what you’ve put out there.

When we break 2016 down Numerology wise, we see this is a number 9 Year!
2+0+1+6 = 9

The number 9 Year is about Karma! You get a chance now to end something this year, once and for all! Something in your life will come to an end, or a chapter is closing now. Now this doesn’t mean it’s all bad, because endings can also be good… so think of it this way..

~You can end a bad habit or stop a certain way of thinking or attitude now.

~Change a behavior enough to end it for goof, usually this involves in the way you react to a situation. You can end the negativity.

~It’s time to end that bad relationship or friendship now and move on from it.

In life things have to end sometimes in order to have new beginnings show up. Your own personal Karma may be complete now with a person, situation or job this year. Allow it to unfold so you can be rewarded Karmically speaking!

Let’s say you’ve been at your job for quite sometime and you never got a promotion, no matter how hard you worked it never happened. Well in 2016 you just may be finally rewarded for a job well done and see some major progress again. But before that happens, you may have to consider leaving your current job and get out there and find something new, to see those rewards finally come in!

The Number 9 cycle is also about our past coming back around, so for some that can mean second chances. 2016 is a good year to reconnect with old dreams, lost loves, and goals. You may connect with old friends or go back to an old job. You can resurrect an old dream! Dust yourself off and try again. If someone or something has not been working out to your advantage and has not been enhancing your life, you might just finally end your association.

So, it is truly a New Year to disconnect and reconnect. You can get paid back Karmically for the good you have done or for the poor decisions you’ve made. Either way, Karma is coming to call upon us. You now can release the things that aren’t working or that you don’t need in your life to make way for new opportunities!

In addition to this being a Number 9 Year there is also a Universal Energy number for each of us, we individually all have a specific number too. Some of you might be in a Number 1 personal year, so that could mean a year that will bring you love or money.

If you’d like me to do a Reading on your specific Personal Year, you can pay and order a “One Question Reading” with me and I will give you the overall theme you’ll be working in for 2016. Just email or message me asking for “My Personal Year for 2016” Reading.

Happy New Year ~Ruby
