Solar Eclipse/New Moon Information and More!
By Rubys Readings

The Solar Eclipse is Getting Closer occurring on August 11th

The beauty of this upcoming New Moon/Solar Eclipse is that whatever you ask for or visualize just might show up by the Full Moon August 26th. This doesn’t always happen, sometimes things take time. But this energy is different and some folks are going to see their desires and wishes come true right away. So remember the night before the New and Full Moon’s this month make out some sort of lists or offerings, whatever you want or do and ask the Universe for what you truly desire. “Set Intentions”, and if you don’t know how just click this link to learn more: https://goo.gl/MGrXfD

The Big Eclipse in Leo is at 18 degrees on August 11th

How will the Eclipse energy affect your life?

This is next weekend folks, it’s a great time to manifest your hopes, wishes, and dreams. Set those intentions, please! Maybe say a prayer, mantra, or blessing, or several if the mood strikes. Depending on where this New Moon Eclipse falls in your own personal Astrology “Birth Chart”, is where the Eclipse influence will affect you for the next six months. If you’d like an “Eclipse Reading” with me, so we can discuss it, get a hold of me and just ask how to purchase an “Eclipse Reading.”

I will do all the necessary research into your own Chart and get it all ready to discuss. A New Moon’s influence usually last for about a month, but a Solar Eclipse can last for up to six months, so expect some changes to occur into the next year.

Solar Eclipse time table – August 11th

Do your Setting Intentions work around these times or before you go to bed the night before, or as soon as you get up that morning. Just make yourself do it!

Heads Up! 
Mercury Goes Out of Retrograde on August 19th and Goes Direct once again HOORAY!!

Mercury the planet of communication, ruler of our thinking processes turns direct, and a plan will finally start to come together! Now is the time to incorporate all that you’ve have learned during its Retrograde cycle, so if you have been thinking about or reviewing something important since July 25th (or a few weeks prior), when Mercury turned Retrograde, and you have used this time wisely now you can proceed with fewer obstacles and get on the right path, because you are informed and have a more realistic understanding about where you stand and what you need to be doing in order to be successful. With all the knowledge you now have, you are just better prepared and ready to make important decisions about your life.

Still, keep in mind that Mercury’s change in direction occurs also close to the time when the Solar Eclipse/New Moon occurs. So the atmosphere will be unstable and things are in flux and often changes just happen. Don’t let yourself lose it and overreact to whatever it is you learn or hear during this time, because everything is still a bit confusing until Mercury is back at its normal pace around the first week of September. Just take your time before you respond to anyone or react.

Good News! 
Jupiter makes a beautiful Trine to Neptune also August 19th

This is going to help increase and even enhance your psychic abilities. So it’s a great time to open up your third-eye. This energy can help us embark on a new spiritual journey, it’s a fresh start or new beginning. It helps us to awaken our spirit and see the truth. Great day to make some sort of spiritual quest. And for getting a Psychic Reading hint hint!

As Jupiter in powerful Scorpio makes a beautiful Trine to spiritual Neptune in holistic Pisces, someone is in a position to help you, and more than likely will. If you can also be that person of assistance to someone else then do it or help with a cause near and dear to your heart. This amazing planet combination in Water Signs can bring about great empathy across the board, but it also can help increase your feelings and bring emotional overload! All of you who believe yourselves to be Empaths, Sensitives, Healers, or Psychics please make sure to put an energetic shield of protections up, as you can absorb way too much energy during this time and get burnt out fast! And make sure you are tending to your own personal needs while helping others.

Any expressions of love, including romance, can find happier conclusions during this time, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get everything you think you need or want, but the outcome will be happier in the long run whatever happens. Emotionally, the energy will be warmer but not fiery, so we don’t get burnt up. It’s a good time to express yourself in an artistic way, so take in live play or concert. And there’s still work to get done, like taking out the trash, that never ends! But do something to relax and have fun, get out but also take some time to meditate when this influence comes in.

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse

20160828_043156

 

Rubys Astro Readings
Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

MERCURY TURNS DIRECT!!

MERCURY TURNS DIRECT!!
By Ruby

Mercury is leaving its Retrograde cycle, finally! Can I get a HOORAY!! Heavy Deep Sigh! And exhale, haha

Mentally strong Mercury, the planet that rules over our way of thinking, communication, and forward movement is finally turning direct this morning, from being Retrograde (backward) since August 12th.

Over the coming weeks ahead, the problems we’ve been experiencing with communication, decision-making, and glitchy electronics will start to improve. Slowly will able to make decisions once again, but be patient folks, this energy doesn’t change over night, it takes time to get back to normal. Just be thankful, we’re on the right track again!

Any plans or projects you couldn’t get finished over the last month or so can at least get started with the potential for success now. Start out by taking baby steps for now, because we actually can be overwhelmed with too much information during this time. This can make things even more confusing and difficult to make sense of. It’s actually probably a good idea to wait, before making any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking isn’t quite right just yet!

In fact, this “Shadow Phase” of Mercury Retrograde coupled along with all these other energies and the dreamy Full Moon can simply be too much energy to handle and very distracting! The clarity we seek isn’t readily available under all this heavy fog today. Try to wait it out if at all possible, if you’re needing to make any major changes, around the 9th things will really start to make sense again. The shadow phase technically lasts through the Sept 19th!

“Welcome to Reality!”

“Welcome to Reality!”

Rubys Astro Readings
September 2017

September will be much calmer and not as crazy as August due to the Solar Eclipse that occurred. However, the energy the Eclipse started on August 21st will continue to be activated throughout September and the months to come. We just won’t feel so push and pulled on like we did all through August to the point of craziness, and much of that nervous tension we felt shouldn’t be a factor.

Mercury in Retrograde just moved back into the sign of Leo, and meets up with hot-headed Mars on the 3rd, but also makes a nice connection to thought provoking Uranus. This coming week is all about the Lessons we are learning from last month’s Eclipse. These lessons are still just coming to us because this energy lasts for months after it occurred, so we are still processing them and discovering what they even are at this time. They’re so new we don’t even know them all just yet! Mercury teaches us how to communicate, while Mars is our actions, and Uranus helps us think of new ways to do things. These three planets are joining up and activating the Eclipse Point energies, and this creates a very strong energy for communication. But the issue is we can say too much and cross boundaries, so people may get aggressive or angry!

Mars the planet that ignites our aggressions and passions is still in fiery, roaring Leo till the 5th, so watch what you say folks, or get ready to rumble out there! The energies are ripe for disputes, fights, and anger. Some people are feeling selfish, and there’s a tendency to overdo and over react right now. The good news is Mercury is going DIRECT on the 5th, just right before the Full Moon comes together, which ends its three weeks long Retrograde cycle, but if you add the three week shadow period prior to the Rx period, we have been in this energy for nearly six long weeks! It’s been enough, for now, time to get our way of thinking back to normal. And it’s turning direct at the exact same point or degree as it’s called in Astrology as last month’s Solar Eclipse also in Leo, 28 degrees. This energy can bring great insight and clarity around how to move forward with our intentions we set back during the Eclipse.

This will be a very powerful time for Mercury because it is always stronger when it turns direct, so in Leo, the truth will come out, and people are exposed, but this also gives us more helpful information.The Full Moon occurs the next day on Sept 6th in healing Pisces. So we will be in lessons around spirituality, idealism, dreams (both awake and asleep), illusions, deception, weakness, confusion, and vagueness. Neptune is Pisces ruling planet and this Full Moon will affect your mood and close relationships, it amplifies and intensifies these energies as it also joins up with Neptune! This can be dreamy or extremely foggy! Make sure to be cautious during this time, things aren’t what they always appear to be, and we are more vulnerable to deception, victimization, and scandals.

Last February the Moon was doing the exact same thing, so whatever seeds or ideas we planted at that time can now be realized during this month’s Full Moon.This month’s New Moon occurs on the 20th in Virgo. So it’s lessons for us are all about getting some control over our bodies and health or well-being, it also helps us to focus on the details and reality. Which we will get a whole of training on this month, as the Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Venus will all be in Virgo at one point. That means your life, mind, body, and love life all could experience some sort of wake-up call. Take the steps to help yourself heal in some way this month because the opportunity is there.

How we react or respond to any kind of dramatic or traumatic event depends upon our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Virgo energy teaches all of us about “Discernment”, so take a look at your life and what is supporting you and what is toxic and needs to be let go or released.

If you want to learn more about just how the energies of September will affect you personally in all stages of your life, I am offering detailed monthly reports based on your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart,” I can tell you what parts of your life to work in and what will be more fortunate and challenging. Purchase your Charts through me here and I will do the research and send you a detailed report by email only.

New Moon 2017

“NEW MOON/SOLAR ECLIPSE”
August 21st, 2017

The New Moon in Leo comes together Monday, August 21st, 2017 which is also a rare Solar Eclipse! The most anticipated and debated astrological event of the Summer is finally upon us.

New Moon Times:
Central: 1:30pm
Eastern: 2.30pm
Mountain: 12:30pm
Pacific: 11:30pm
A NEW MOON represents a New Cycle that the cosmos brings into help us create new beginnings. This also happens to be the day of the “Great American Solar Eclipse”, so let’s just get the facts straight:

NEW MOONS ARE ALSO CALLED “DARK MOONS,” because they give off the lowest light during a calendar month.

NEW MOONS are when the SUN is Conjunct the MOON. A new moon is a moment when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction, meaning that the Sun and Earth are on the opposite sides of the Moon.

– This NEW MOON is in the sign of Leo astrological this time around.

– On Monday, Aug. 21st the sky will go dark for a short period of time due to the SOLAR ECLIPSE!

– A SOLAR ECLIPSE, as viewed from Earth, occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, fully or partially from the Sun.

– A SOLAR ECLIPSE typically only happens with a NEW MOON, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction.

– In partial and annular Eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured; during a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon, the Eclipse on August 21, 2017, is a Total one.

 

This New Moon cycle is the second of two New Moon’s both in Leo in a month. This Solar Eclipse marks the grand finale to this tumultuous “Eclipse Season” and a blazing new beginning on a personal and collective level. Leo is the most dramatic or more like theatrical and radiant sign of the Zodiac signs.

July’s New Moon in Leo was connected strongly to fiery Mars also in Leo, and that fiery energy was the booster to set this energy into motion.

However, the August New Moon’s energy feels more solid, stubborn, resolute, and uncompromising so there won’t be any hesitation, doubt, or resistance allowed at this time!

This New Moon brings with it a mysterious dark shadow that is cast on Earth, due to the “Total Solar Eclipse” also occurring, and this can be a positive influence that helps brings out our intuitive nature, therefore dreams and visions have been quite strong. But it asks us to embrace our weaknesses, and tap into our inner confidence and strength.

The Eclipse is also making a connection to the fixed star “Regulus” the “Heart of the Lion”, so how perfectly fitting for a New Moon in “Leo”. This Star is known as the “little king” and is often associated with royalty and authority, and is believed to be, “the stars, star!”, because of how strongly it affects folks who are in the public eye lives, like movie stars and entertainers.

Regulus adds some serious juice to this rare. cosmic event. Its energy demands nothing less than loyalty and integrity from us, and intense devotion and passion, that only can match this stars warmth, generosity, and brilliance.

*After all, the point of an Eclipse is it helps us accelerate our growth, and it pushes us past our comfort zones, hence why so many of you are feeling anxiety-ridden one minute and completely exhausted the next! This process does move along easier if we move with the energy and give up any resistance to it!*


Astrologically speaking, it doesn’t matter where the shadow of this Eclipse touches our corner of the world, this is a strong energetic gateway that we all are about to walk through, and it creates evolutionary changes within all of us!During this New Moon in Leo, our focus should be on building up our self-confidence by discovering our own paths as individuals. So ask yourself what you want in your life for you, not for your kids or a partner, but just for yourself. This energy also asks us to learn what our special gifts and talents are, and what creative skills we possess. This energy is also about us making a conscious effort to work with others in a more personal way, where we are involved and loving, so working straight from our hearts.

We might enjoy recommitting to an existing romance, hobby, or project that we felt passionate about before. It’s also a good for adding some “play” or leisure time to our lives. Under this potent Leo energy, we have a fighting chance to make amazing changes in our lives and to move forward and progress. For some of us, our circumstances have already demanded we pay more attention to these matters.

The Eclipse is showing us what isn’t working in our lives right now, so we can redo or start something all over again. Something is ending so a new beginning can start!

There are major developments in whatever personal area that’s ruled by Leo in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart, this will occur over the next 3-6 months. However, not everyone gets or feels the same effect from the Eclipse, and certainly not the same intensity. Those folks that have personal planets being activated by the degree of the Eclipse will feel its effects on a very deep personal level. If you want to know more about what area of your life this New Moon/Eclipse is affecting, please get with me to purchase a MINI ECLIPSE READING. And I will do the research and send you a detailed report.

During this NEW MOON, we should commit some time to set some personal goals that we would like to achieve in our life. Our focus should be on all the traits of Leo, (yes no matter your Sun Sign, we all have Leo in our personal Astrology Charts) This helps you learn how to work with this energy and create something new and improved. This NEW MOON brings in a fresh, creative energy into our lives, and even more importantly through our hearts.

This NEW MOON’S lessons are around learning how to be more gracious while negotiating how to keep peace and restore harmony, this is going to be extra important and challenging. But this is how we can have more successful relationships and grow from the process.

Happy Blessed NEW MOON

Mercury Retrograde – August 2017

wp-1461884119806.jpg

Mercury Retrograde – August 2017
August 12th through September 5th
by Ruby

Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even if 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 have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde is that time out, it’s the chance to get caught up with life, it’s time to get unplugged, 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 what needs to be completed, and no the Universe doesn’t care if you have a deadline, or when it’s time to slow down and unplug, it simply just is.

Mercury rules the lower-mind or individual (finite) mind and its energies, so when it’s in a Retrograde cycle we tend 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 and will continue to do so. So every once in awhile 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 help us to breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to know as this energy comes in is that it’s 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.

~What’s Positive During Mercury in Retrograde?
There can be positive effects to your life from Mercury in Retrograde that we just didn’t think about before. Like throwing out the old and organizing our lives. Focus on any past opportunities and reconsider them and see if they are still an option. We may just have to work around all the computer glitches and electronic snafus while doing so. It’s important to understand we don’t have to stop all our projects during the Mercury in Rx cycle. But it’s not an ideal time to start new ventures or to sign contracts, simply because for one reason or another we end up usually changing our mind once Mercury turns direct, or goes back to normal. However, it can be a great time to do some “outside of the box” thinking. It’s just best not to ACT until after Mercury is back to its normal pace. But if you can get something done in a different or unique way, go for it!

~With Mercury Retrograde in Virgo:
This time around our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world differently during this time and through these filters, we can have some very important inner-revelations. With Mercury in Rx it’s a good time to look at past decisions and ideas from a new enlightened perspective, but remember we can be especially analytical and critical, perhaps too much with Mercury in the sign of Virgo through the 31st.

Even though we may be especially stubborn or impatient. Lots of folks will end up returning to old projects and end up redoing, refining, and tweaking them. You may feel stuck in the past in some way while Mercury is Retrograde in Virgo, but you can find old or past ideas to be more useful now, so use them in new ways if you can make yourself move forward. This is a great time to review recent financial matters or work and discover mistakes or oversights. Plans or routines may be reconsidered in ways that can benefit you.

Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around subjects that have already been taken.

This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past and help you reconnect 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. Because we are perceiving things in a different way and the truth tends to come out, and you just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before. This cycle can bring clarity and help you remove the restrictions or blocks that are in your way from achieving happiness.

It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, but remember to try not to rationalize everything, which can prove difficult due to this particular Mercury in Retro being in analytical Virgo. Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so might I suggest getting more involved in practices like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing or working on any activities involving your past. And this all can be quite helpful as it keeps your mind more focused and in the right space.

We can get a lot out of renewing our old self-care, health, or fitness programs. Plans are going to be thought about and then dropped rather quickly during this time, so be flexible to changes, as it just comes with the territory. This is a good time to reevaluate our routines and habits, as well as the meaning around what we do for a living, so around our work and any services we provide with Mercury in Virgo.

~Mercury Retrograde in Leo:
Mercury will switch signs into Leo, during its Retrograde phase starting August 31st through September 5th, this is a time for learning or relearning what we love doing. Look back and analyze your past romantic relationships or creative projects. It’s also a time for preparation, rehearsal, and redoing things. It especially can be a good time for role playing something before you actually say or do it!

~Mercury in Rx transits the Sun:
Retrograde Mercury is aligned with the Sun in Virgo on August 26th, this placement lights up our thinking. This connection makes for a favorable time for processing recent ideas or events, and for looking at past problems or issues from a new perspective with a new understanding. Remember what we say or write during this time can have more of an impact for better or worse! There can some amazing new ideas that come through during this time, so be creative!

Mercury will start retracing its steps and go into direct motion on September 5th, this period of time is called the “Shadow” phase and that ends on Sept.19th.

What’s also interesting to note is that Mercury returns to 28 degrees Leo before moving direct again, and this is exactly the same position of the “Solar Eclipse” on August 21st. Retrograde Mercury is also aligned with Mars at this Eclipse point on September 2nd and 3rd, those days are going to be significant, but I will have more on this later.

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse 2017

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse 2017

by Ruby

For all the Signs of the Zodiac:

The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius occurs on Monday, August 7th, 2017, around 2:11 PM EDT and 1:11 PM CST
In another location? Please click here for your time zone.

On Monday afternoon, the Full Moon will come together when the Sun in Leo opposes the Moon in Aquarius. The Full Moon is the peak or highest point of the Moon during its month long cycle, it’s an emotional energy and a time for romance, relationships, and fertilization. But it is also exciting feeling but tense in energy for all of us.

“The Full Moon is the time when your emotions come up to the surface for you to deal with them. If you work with them, you can clear yourself out energetically. The easiest way to do this is to make peace with the past during this time!”

This Full Moon-Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius helps us look at just how we are sharing our lives with others in all kinds of different relationships, be it the ones we have with loving partners or with a group of people in any part of our lives. The Full Moon’s energy is wise and truthful, so lies get told during this cycle and truths suddenly come out! It’s during this Lunar cycle that the night time is not even dark enough to hide our fears, hurts, emotional wounds, and flaws. Do yourself a favor and write out some questions to go over during this time, it can be a very eye-opening experience!

Ask yourself the following:
1) Are you happy right now?
2) Are you spending time with people that bring out your better qualities?
3) Do you feel like you sort of are invisible in a group?
4) Do you feel unappreciated and overlooked?
5) Can you disagree safely with the folks you are close too?
6) Are you allowed to show your true self in front of the people you are around or do you feel punished for doing so?

It’s normal to want to feel like we belong in a group or relationship, and it’s hurtful to feel like we don’t. But whatever the case may be it can be helpful from time to time to go it alone, and get some peace and quiet. Take some space to remind yourself who you are as an individual! This gives you the time to do life on your terms in your own way. Taking some time away or alone helps you figure out who you are, so in your relationships, you don’t lose yourself! Eventually, relationships where one person gives themselves totally away break apart in one way or another. This Eclipse wants you to balance out being who you are while being in your relationships.

This Full Moon is a partial Lunar Eclipse, and this is a very potent strong energy that mainly affects our relationships. And that means all types of relationships, not just the ones between two people. This influence can suddenly trigger us into thinking about our relationships and how we belong. So perhaps the relationships you have with your co-workers, or the relationship you have with your health and bodies, and so forth. It is a time when a matter comes to light, so all that is hidden, suppressed, secret, or unknown can suddenly come out to the surface. As we become aware our emotions can rise up and we can get very emotional like under any Full Moon, but this is an Eclipse which is a Full Moon but 10x stronger.

Eclipses cause an inner conflict around what we feel is lacking in our lives, so where are you in your life going without or what are you going without is the question, and especially in your relationships with a partner or in groups. You suddenly and without little warning may realize what it is you want or need under this influence. Our deepest desires seem to build up and this causes a conflict, so lots of folks are either cutting off people or are breaking up in relationships right now! But this means we also can become strongly aware of a need to keep someone in our life as well.

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipses are about the relationships we have with others because it is the polarity between the Sun and the Moon and that influence we are feeling within ourselves, as the Sun represents Self and the Moon represents our Emotional Self and the Unconscious. This connection prompts us to take a look more closely at our own needs, desires, lacks, and what we want in our lives.
The Sun is in Leo (personal) currently and the Moon is in Aquarius (impersonal), during this Eclipse, so let’s break that down.

Leo energy is how we creatively express ourselves, and how we boost our ego enough to receive pleasure and experience romance. Aquarius energy is about the group so more impersonal friendships. This Full Moon helps us learn how to create the balance between these polar opposite signs within ourselves. So between experiencing romance and friendship, and being able to freely express ourselves both personally and impersonally. Leo energy for all of us no matter what your Sign maybe is about being part of a team but keeping our individualism and Aquarius energy is about taking care of the group.

The Sun in Leo is proud and intense and isn’t content with simply being just one of the group, it has to be able to be an individual separate of it and likes to lead it usually. The Moon in Aquarius energy is about how we can still be part of a team or group, but also remain an individual.

If this is confusing for you, please just focus on Leo Energy and Aquarius Energy and the traits of each sign and how you can be more like both signs in some way, and then think about how you balance that out. This Full Moon brings out the conflict between the two energies so we may have some kind of moment of awareness where we suddenly realize what it is we are lacking in our relationships and what it is we really need or want! This Eclipse is an opportunity to explore your own emotional needs, which many of you have already been doing! Relationships are being tested and challenged now, and have been breaking up all over the place, while others are being strengthened dramatically. This path of self-discovery is highly emotionally charged and dramatic. AHA moments are strong during this time as we become quite aware of what is lacking in our life.

You can discover just what this Lunar Eclipse is trying to show you by learning where in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart” the Eclipse is traveling through, and what area of your life this energy is affecting. If you want to know more get with me about purchasing a “Mini Eclipse” Report, and I will do the research for you and show you just what part of your life you want to be focusing on during this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, because remember this energy can affect us for up to six months after it occurs.

Just a friendly reminder that when a Full Moon comes together people can feel suddenly overwhelmed with emotions because there is such a strong sense of awareness that can overcome them. So they might burst out loud just how they are feeling because this energy pushes out those emotions and sometimes we just have to express ourselves! Any Aha moments that take place haven’t been thought out yet or even had a chance to be rationalized, so it’s just a raw energy that takes hold that can make people feel off, emotional, and irrational.

A Lunar Eclipse is a more strong and potent Full Moon and therefore its effects tend to last longer. Many Astrologers believe that this energy will last up to six months after it has come together!

Time for Emotional Breakdowns! 

Rubys Astro Readings
Time for Emotional Breakdowns!
July 2017

For all the Signs of the Zodiac:

This afternoon we are entering into a new chapter with the Sun in Leo, one of self-discovery that can last all the way through the upcoming big Solar Eclipse on August 21st. Emotional breakdowns can occur for the next day while we shift onto this path.

There might be a moment here shortly where you realize you can’t get something you had your heart set on. This doesn’t mean you won’t ever get it. But for right now it’s not going to happen. And this can be around anything, it’s just something your heart wants.

However, this is happening for good reasons, be it timing or whatever. But this influence teaches us what our heart wants and needs are two different things! This means that house or new relationship may not happen right now, no matter how deeply you feel about it. And we just have to accept there are reasons we may not understand yet, but there’s still a reason. Evolving is funny like that, often what we want isn’t what we need to help us on our soul journey through life.

The way to handle this energy is to keep your heart open and don’t allow your mind or ego to make things worse. Because it can make you feel sad, confused, and even depressed! And then you start to focus on what is lacking, and negativity can set in. This takes you on a downward spiral and into the whole why or how you didn’t get something your heart wanted. This can make you angry and temper tantrums can occur. This does not solve your problems, it can drive you crazy and just makes you suffer.

Instead, it’s time to explore your heart and your options. Your heart wants other things that you don’t even know exist yet, things you haven’t even thought of! So it’s up to you to get on board and figure that out. So what’s your next wish or your next heart’s desire? Worrying and over thinking will only block you. But we are in a time where we might have to detach emotionally a little along this path to figure it all out. Patience is key.

There are going to be some challenges along this journey, with mental Mercury’s recent move into practical Virgo. This can have us hyper aware of the details and what we are lacking. So we can be more critical and analytical. If you don’t allow your mind to take over, and work on feeling what it is you want next, you will start to feel much better.

The Sun and Mars are both in Leo now, which means our hearts are strong. We are at the core of learning just how to obtain our hearts desires. This influence can help you get something you want and need. It just might be something different than what you had originally thought.

It’s time to stop thinking about what you don’t have or aren’t getting, and more on how you feel. Over the next few weeks we are detaching from whatever we wanted and by August 7th when the Lunar Eclipse occurs we will have done away with something or someone. It’s a time of letting go and releasing, be it people, things, or situations, as this Eclipse brings about powerful endings. So we may end up having to accept the fact that we aren’t getting something by that time. Then we will start to really work on a new dream and attaching to a new heart’s desire by the Big Solar Eclipse on August 21st because we will know more so what we want again.

It’s extremely important during this time, or as it’s called “Eclipse Season”, that you are kind and gentle on yourself. You can feel isolated and abandoned in some way, as you detach yourself from one dream and attach to a new one. As you feel this energy more, it’s important to ask yourself what it is your heart truly wants next. Just don’t expect an answer right away, this is a process. And it probably won’t all come together over night. Look to the Universe for signs and messages along the way to help guide you on this new journey.

Attn: Anyone who is feeling depressed or unwell, or who has been through some major trauma, try to focus on the small stuff and taking one step at a time. Please talk to someone about how you’re feeling, there’s always someone who’s willing to listen. Focus on what makes you happy and what you feel grateful for. If you’re reading this don’t give up, please!

This cycle of the Sun in Leo with the Eclipses brings forth something new and exciting for us, and it can be something that’s really good for our soul’s purpose. So hang in there folks.

Leo New Moon

New Moon in Leo

Rubys Astro Readings

Leo New Moon 
“The Beginning”

Rare and Exciting Energy!

There are actually two New Moons in Leo over the course of the next month, which is actually quite unusual. All planets move by degrees that go from 0 to 29, and these two New Moons are very interesting indeed, because the first one that forms on July 23rd is at 0 Degrees and the second one on Aug. 21st is at 29 Degrees, so we have New Beginnings and Endings, and then a massive Solar Eclipse comes together as well on August 21st.

New Moons represent the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle, this particular New Moon is when the Sun and Moon are both in Leo, and conjunct each other, so they work together to create an amazing rare energy that represents New Beginnings coming into our lives.

This New Moon represents all things Leo, so we should be focusing on some new ways to make certain parts of our lives better, like the romance in our relationships and in the relationships we have with our children, but also how we use our creativity and around any hobbies we do. This Leo energy also helps us to build up our self-confidence and pride we have in ourselves. so work on loving yourself some more.

The upcoming New Moon’s influence runs right through the August 21st very powerful Solar Eclipse! The best time to create a strong new beginning or a new project is during the first two weeks right after it comes together. Which means this energy runs right until the Lunar Eclipse on Aug. 7th. It’s something you don’t want to miss out on, so be sure to not ignore this one and “Set Intentions” or make out “Wish Lists”, and write down what it is you want to have shown up in your life starting this Sunday, and then get out there and take actions between now and August 7th to make it happen.

This New Moon reveals some interesting info. like it can help you connect to your Spirit Guides, Higher Power, Angels, or whatever you spiritually connect too. It also tends to bring out family secrets, therefore it can create challenges within the family. On the positive side, this energy does also create the space for us to reconnect with loved ones and family. So if you are going to meet up with any family over the next few months, just be aware that skeletons can come falling out of the closet! And make sure those secrets don’t catch you off guard.

The Universe is already sending out messages about what the August 21st Solar Eclipse is going to bring into your life, so pay attention and watch for signs and symbols, and maybe jot them down somewhere to review later as we get closer to the actual Eclipse.

There is also some less favorable tense energy with this New Moon coming together. Being with or around anyone who is even remotely annoying or frustrating can really send you over the edge, with so many planets in Leo right now we can be driven crazy quite quickly as our nerves are easily rattled. Due to feeling more easily irritated we can let the small things get to us. Also, watch your temper, it’s all too easy to lose your cool and end up telling folks off in true Leo fashion, Ya know that’s Lions Roar! And others might actually realize how easily annoyed you are getting and take it personally and then feelings can get hurt.

Don’t worry as there are some major positive vibes coming off this New Moon mostly, and you have some powerful energy to create and manifest some really good energy in your life, as we’ll be in this energy for awhile with another New Moon in Leo in August! This is a powerful time folks! These two New Moon’s in Leo are an opportunity to ask for what you want twice around!

The lesson this New Moon in Leo is trying to teach us is about taking more pride in who we are as unique individuals, and taking more responsibility for what we do in our lives, and being able to give of ourselves in a kind, warm, and generous way. This New Moon is an excellent time to meditate on the traits of Leo energy, like how we express ourselves and being more proud, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, and open-hearted! All of these traits can be part of your own personality no matter what your Zodiac Sun Sign may be. This energy for the next two New Moons is in Leo so we can learn an awful lot if we try. We all have Leo somewhere in our Astrology Birth Charts, take this next month to improve that area of your life. It’s time to wake up the inner-child within yourself and find better ways to express your creativity and yourself.

There’s also a strong connection between fiery Mars and shocking Uranus that will come together during a big event with a rare Total Solar Eclipse soon! It’s probably not a great idea to get involved in anything risky or remotely dangerous as this energy builds up through this next month. This is Eclipse Season folks and our lives are fragile, so don’t break major rules or be in places that are crime ridden. Just pay attention to your surroundings and be observant.

This energy is extremely powerful, so if you’d like to prepare yourself and learn exactly just what part of your life you should be focusing on during this New Moon, please purchase a “One Question Reading” here, just message me and ask me, “What’s my New Moon” information. I will do the research for you and tell just where this New Moon will be in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart and what new beginnings it’s bringing into your life, be it love, money, health, or whatever the case maybe.

The next month is going to be full of potential and it’s a powerful time. Let’s start Eclipse Season off right with some clear goals to make sure our intentions line up with our destiny!
