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

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.

Happy Chinese New Year!
2018 – The Year of the Earth Dog

The Solar Eclipse also marks the time for the Chinese New Year for 2018, and this is the year of the Earth Dog. According to the Chinese Zodiac, this year includes being honest, taking responsibility seriously, fairness and equality themes, and exposing things that have been hidden.

The Year of the Dog in the Chinese Lunar Calendar starts this Saturday, February 17th.

The Dog is the Eleventh animal in the 12-year cycle of Chinese Zodiac Signs, those who are born in the Year of the Dog include the folks who came into the world in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2006 – and also those born this year 2018, and those who will be born in 2030 in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac.

In Chinese Astrology, each Zodiac year (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) is not just associated with an animal sign, but also one of five elements, which are metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.

The year 2018 meets the element of Earth and so 2018 is an Earth Dog Year!

According to Chinese Horoscopes predictions, the Year of the Earth Dog in 2018 is going to be a good year in all its aspects. Fresh and refreshed, the Earth Dog will accelerate the initiation of bringing in new things.

While the Year of the Earth Dog will be generally a good year for finances for many of you no matter your Zodiac Sign, however, you might want to pay special attention to your health this year. The year 2018 is an ideal time to start eating healthy, so it’s also a good time to take on new exercise programs or sports and work on getting rid of bad or unhealthy habits.

The Year of the Earth Dog will also bring many big changes economically and this can signify growth. But on the other hand, there could also be adjustments in the economy, especially in stock markets. So it’s a good time to be cautious about your investments in 2018.

The year 2018 will also be a time when new business opportunities that are created have the potential to go well financially. Cash flow should actually increase and its the right time to build up your reputation or social status around your work or business.

Therefore, 2018 is a good time to enjoy life and be social, so attend parties, social functions, and weddings. Also, the Year of the Earth Dog can bring more luck to both already existing marriages and ones that happen this year. The ruling number in 2018, so the Year of the Earth Dog is 9. The number 9 is considered lucky in Chinese Astrology, as it holds the energy of longevity, abundance, and prosperity for all the signs of the Zodiac.

The story of the Dog in Chinese Astrology is quite interesting, as the dog is considered to be man’s best friend who understands the human spirit and obeys its master, wealthy or poor. The Chinese regard this as an auspicious animal. So if a dog happens to randomly show up at your house, this is considered a symbol of good fortune to come. The invincible God Erlang in Chinese legends used a loyal wolfhound to help him capture monsters.

So at the stroke of midnight make sure and make a Wish to help usher in the spirit of good health, wealth, and prosperity!

New Moon in Capricorn – Jan 2017

NEW MOON in Capricorn
by Rubys Readings

The first NEW MOON of 2018 is on January 17th!
We have been under some heavily saturated energy in Capricorn with six planets now in the sign at the same time. This is very focused energy that has challenged us to take charge of our lives and make a commitment to taking some sort of action.

Capricorn is an Earth Sign and is ruled by Saturn and is represented by the “Seat Goat.” This is a powerful time to manifest and build something with much potential. Our intentions can actually be realized and seen, so we should remain aware of what energy we’re drawing into ourselves and our world. You might be feeling some pressure now to make decisions and be at a crossroads of some kind. The secret to reaching goals is to have trust and faith in something, but especially in yourself. Don’t let fear lead the way, it takes away your motivation and then you won’t make commitments to reach your goals.

The sign of Capricorn teaches us about Authority, so it knows all about fear and control. This New Moon can teach us how to connect to the authority within ourselves, so we can be in our power and take charge of our lives. This is a time to pull back into our souls and reconnect with our spirit, as our energy can become scattered due to being involved in activities have nothing to do with what we want or need, and our soul path.

Making a strong connection to whatever it is you believe in is important now, this helps you make decisions with integrity that are natural and authentic. When manifesting anything you must first learn how to FEEL what it is you want to create! This is the best time to work on “Setting Intentions” or your “Wish Lists” around calling in your deepest desires. New Moons are always about New Beginnings and this particular New Moon in the sign of Capricorn and the Sun also being in Capricorn is strongly about manifesting! Don’t focus on just what you want, also feel how it would be like if your dreams or wishes come true! And how it feels just to think of them. Ask yourself how you want to feel once you’ve achieved your goals? FEELING is the secret to manifesting or creating magic in your life, not THINKING! Thinking is the what draws the energies to you, yes, but if you really want to make something happen you have to feel it.

There are some rather interesting and powerful planetary connections to this New Moon! First off aggressive Mars in its own sign of soulful Scorpio, forms a supportive aspect to this New Moon, which helps us reach our deepest feelings and desires. Jupiter also in Scorpio is making a precise connection to Pluto in Capricorn. The connection between Scorpio and Capricorn during a New Moon teaches us that if we want to reach any goals here in this physical reality we must first be fueled by our passions! This is about being real and authentic, and focusing on what truly makes you happy, rather than what you think you have to do or following someone else’s wishes or dreams.

Now there are also some challenges when this New Moon squares off with rebellious Uranus, which can bring on chaotic and disrupting energies, which leaves us with no choice but to surrender our control and have some faith or belief in something.

All of us no matter what Zodiac Sign have Capricorn in our own personal “Astrology Birth Chart!” This side of us is being challenged to learn how to master our inner-self, instead of wasting so much energy on trying to control the world around us. If you want to see things as you would like, you must first learn how to work with your Spirit. It always starts with you first, no matter what the problem or case may be!

Often the sign of Capricorn gets picked on as being overly weighty, and to serious or focused on fame and material things. The Horned Goat is used to represent Capricorn because it symbolizes the connection between the physical realms and the deeper waters of consciousness. So as we are in very strong Capricorn terrority right now with so many planets in this sign, we are also strongly connected to our own inner-psychic or awareness, if we learn how to combine that and operate from our heart around anything we do and be compassionate, we can manifest our reality into something amazing!

Daily Update – A Turning Point!

For all the Signs of the ZODIAC:

The MOON remains in more pleasing, charming LIBRA all day long, so we tend to be more kind to others and even accommodating. The COSMOS is throwing some seriously strong energies together now and we’re just trying to balance it all! There might be challenges, but in this energy, we tend to be more cautious and open-minded. Acting like grown-ups helps conflicts get solved more easily.

Also today, the “LAST QUARTER MOON” phase comes together, this is a somewhat tense energy actually and you may feel irritable and frustrated by it so anxieties can run high! We need some sort of release under this energy, feeling like we should take action now!

The planets connecting over the next several days are helping us attract a lot of opportunities!

The SUN is aligning with creative VENUS and is favorable with expansive JUPITER, and ambitious MARS is favorable with transforming PLUTO! WOW! We’re so plugged into the UNIVERSE right now folks, that many of you have been experiencing a strong connection to your dreams, they are more clear, vivid, and symbolic than usual. Messages, signs, and symbols are all over the place right now!

So much energy is being poured into our projects and relationships now that we’re more energetic, passionate and resourceful! It’s easy to make new friendships now, and for starting new projects, and finding new jobs or making career changes. We’re seeking and gaining attention and we like it! Our unique qualities and special gifts are being noticed and discovered if we put ourselves out there, as we show the world we mean business now.

Under this manifesting energy, we go after what and who we want, as we can attract things in a balanced way and can be highly successful now. Goals may seem ambitious but they are very doable now, as standards are high.

This influence has everyone feeling especially sociable, generous, and more tolerant! Relationships are going through it, as some are ending or hitting rough patches, as we notice what we want to change about each other, but also this is mirror-mirror on the wall energy, so basically whatever bothers us about our partners is showing up to help us change something also within ourselves! The intensity of these planetary connections is pushing us to make major changes in how we feel and do our relationships now, this is a major turning point for us, as we are taking actions more than ever now.

This is a very important time for relationships and business, as we can experience major changes in this life-changing energy!

An amazing time for business owners, this is beautiful energy for marketing, promotion, publishing, and advertising of all kinds. Our business sense is strong and we’re particularly good with money, as we have a better and deeper understanding around our business finances, and are on point and know what to do or not to do, our logic and intuition are meeting up and syncing together quite nicely.

Many of you are feeling like gaining control over your lives during this time, but you also want to grow, excel, and advance in some way. Don’t focus on what you have not done, now is the time to be ambitious and make important changes.

“Setting Intentions – NEW MOON”

“Setting Intentions with the NEW MOON”

There’s a New Moon occurring in Sagittarius, on December 18th, 2017, which makes this the best time of the month to set some powerful intentions around your future goals with the Universe and work a little magic!

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

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

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

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

1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.
2. Share your intention with someone in a supportive way, and who will be encouraging.
3. Do something today to demonstrate your commitment to your intention.
4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.

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

What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?

Follow the Steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your sacred space

Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do New Moon work in. You’ll simply be calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some sage or Incense and clear the energies. Next close your eyes and breathe deeply … and call upon your guides, Angels, or higher power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill it up with the energy of love and light. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it.

Step Two: Set the atmosphere

Set the mood for your “New Moon” Ritual and again burn some special incense, light some candles (and colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever colors or tools that make you feel calm, centered, happy, and peaceful.
Step Three: Setting Intentions

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

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

As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about … for example; ask what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to create? Think about your long-term goals and future and what you’d like that to look like over the next month. Be careful about focusing on the how, why, and when of your goals, focus more on what it is you’re wanting and how you want to feel. Let the Universe take care of the rest.

Step Four: Visualize

It’s time to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, so through your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest (not your pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Just don’t think it, make sure and FEEL IT as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.

Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next 30 days, and then allow the New Moon to light up those paths that you are supposed to be going down, so you may bring in what you truly desire, and let go of what you don’t want, it’s not serving your higher good and it’s blocking you from your desires.

Mercury Retrograde Dec 2017

Standard

13151765_10153402301541268_3214954786015162635_n

 

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

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

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

What Not To Do during

Mercury in Retrograde:

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

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

What To do during
Mercury in Retrograde:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Venus in Sagittarius”

Standard

81dcb4fb844488a0b18f5eb416ea5878

Venus will shift and join Mercury and the Sun in Sagittarius on Saturday.

Venus rules over what we value, love, and often our money. Under joyous Sagittarius, we all can feel (no matter what Zodiac sign), like enjoying ourselves, as we have much more courage to play! We also find ourselves feeling much more appreciative of the opportunities that seem to show up, no matter how big or small. Being under this over the top energy we tend to share much more of ourselves with others, and our mentality leans more towards sharing.

Venus can be quite lucky in Sagittarius, as this influence allows doors to open in the areas of love, relationships, and around finances. Hearts are open wide and possibilities for money is strong. However, (in the cosmos there is always a, however, lol) we can see what comes in go out just as quickly if we aren’t careful with how much we decide to spend or how much energy or love we give out, if we don’t pay attention to what we are not getting back. It’s an important time to show gratitude for what you do have and to take nothing you get for granted as the small things seem to just show up!

Over the next month, enjoy the love and gifts this aspect provides without any expectations of what you can get out of it, that’s a big no-no under Sagittarius energy, as this can be somewhat of a confusing time due to Mercury just entering its Retrograde cycle. While Venus is in this sign, she is excited to share love and good feeling vibes in one moment but can be done with it all in a heartbeat. Because this energy makes us feel more distracted by what is fun in the moment than think about the details and the long-term. This is NOT a time to get attached folks, to create rules in your relationships, or to try and restrict anyone into what it is you want from them down the road, it’s not going to work out that way! It’s more a time to see what your options are and what’s readily available.

If you are currently in a relationship this placement can help you if you learn how to play hard to get and be more of a tease. Leave some mystery to your partner to enjoy and figure out, but not for too long of a time, think about living in the moment and just have fun! And remember, if you set things free and it comes back, well that doesn’t always mean it was meant to be, but watch other people’s actions as that can speak way more than words during this time,

Venus in Sagittarius can also have us desire way more than what we are getting or receiving, while others may be more attracted to what’s all shiny and new and still feel unsatisfied. Remember it’s usually the thought that counts, but getting what’s fair is a big deal under this influence. We seek out the truth under this energy and are more interested in the knowledge of what’s hidden or behind the gifts we do receive, as this energy doesn’t help us to trust others very well, unfortunately. Jumping to conclusions is an issue already with mental Mercury in Sagittarius, as any assumptions you make can just be problems later. Therefore, it’s important to listen, there is so much to learn on this exciting journey! Love today like there’s no tomorrow!

Just remember this path may not be so clear over this next week or so as Neptune casts a heavy fog over our minds as it connects to both Mercury in Retrograde and Venus! It may be difficult to see what lies ahead, as the energy feels almost dream-like. It’s not all bad though, as this will force us to use our other senses, so we can trust our own intuition and follow our gut instincts which can help us work on trusting ourselves more.
