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.

“Weekly Update”

August 9-13

Well, we made it through this last weekend’s crazy energy and Monday’s Eclipse in Aquarius! Lunar Eclipses help folks move onward and upward! And endings bring new beginnings. For many of you, it was a rough ride. There has been a whole lot of folks crossing over as well, which is just what comes with the territory of the Eclipses. And there have been many other famous celebs throughout the years who have passed during Eclipse Seasons, but I have also seen many of my clients also lose their loved ones just recently during this go around. We just lost Glen Campbell on Tuesday and back in 1997 Princess Diana and Mother Theresa both passed during Eclipse time. Also back in 2009 Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett crossed over during Eclipse season. So that’s just to name a few of the stars we lost. I always say Eclipse Season is hard on human beings period. But even though Lunar Eclipses bring endings, they also pave the way for many new beginnings too, which I am seeing all over the place. New Jobs are really popular right now! The Great American Solar Eclipse is on August 21st and this will also be the day of the New Moon in Leo which is a beautiful energy! I suspect many of you will be headed towards unchartered territories and hopefully, you will enjoy some sort of new opportunity.

The Cosmic Energy during the month of August is just off the charts! There’s so much to write about, that us Astrologers are having a hard time keeping up! Mercury is also going Retrograde on August 12, so get prepared because it will be in Retrograde through September 5th.

How about some good news! The Sun is going to be spending the week making beautiful connections with lucky Jupiter! Woohoo! In my state alone, I have already seen tons of lucky lotto winners this last few day, so get out those lucky tickets and numbers and see what happens. Also, the Sun is still in Cancer, and this actually does affect all of us, just as the Sun transits all the different signs of the Zodiac year around, this energy doesn’t just affect Cancers, it has an influence on ALL OF YOU! And the Sun in Cancer is also being visited by loving Venus and dreamy Neptune in a positive aspect now. So Romance is in the air, and it’s a great time to enjoy your home and family.

Tuesday the Moon moved into Pisces and also has been in a nice trine to loving Venus, this is very healing energy that will last for the next few days. Wednesday night, Venus and Mercury are working nicely together, which creates loving thoughts. Money, love, and great conversations can produce good results at this time, so look for those opportunities throughout the week.

Thursday looks to be a little more emotionally tiring, and you may feel some sadness for a minute. There are some cosmic shifts that might interrupt your good vibes, but only if you let it! Don’t allow the sadness to take over and ruin your day, remind yourself that it is only temporary and it will soon pass.Some of the what we are feeling also is the last few months of Saturn’s ride through the sign of Sagittarius, am I going to miss this one! But Saturn is moving through the last degrees of Saturn and many of you are feeling this pretty strongly right now. Saturn is the planet that creates hardships and challenges, it is the stern cosmic teacher of the Zodiac, so it also rewards us for a job well done once we have passed all of its test and lessons. Over the past few years, Saturn has been in the sign of Sagittarius and some of you have had a whole lot of challenges. Especially, Pisces, Gemini, and Virgo, as you have had it rough being in rather tense connections to Saturn. So whenever we are experiencing the last degrees of Saturn, like we are now, the energy is harsher! It is the great teacher or more like the professor, and it pushes its lessons and gives out more homework during this time.

For those of you who were born under the sign of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, or Virgo, you might notice some higher anxiety and stress throughout August time. You again just have to remind yourself to stay strong and push through whatever lessons Saturn is throwing your way because this won’t last much longer for you!

Meanwhile, Lucky Jupiter is blessing all of us in some way right now. As those especially born under the sign of LIbra can have some exceptionally good luck this month, and even more so for those born in the second week of October. No matter what your Sun Sign maybe these two cosmic forces, Saturn and Jupiter, will be affecting all of us for the new few months.

If you want to know more of where your blessings and challenges are coming from order a “Mini Report” from me and ask me About your Jupiter and Saturn positions.

We also are moving through Eclipse Season from the Lunar Eclipse and soon we will be feeling the Solar Eclipse’s energy start to build to peak on August 21st, so enjoy the week ahead.

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.

Your Complete Full Moon Guide

“Your Complete 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 it’s 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 with 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 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 its 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 the 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’s 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 everyday. 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 manifesting 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 then 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!
