Mercury Direct

Mercury turns Direct out of Retrograde!!


December 6th, 2018

Mercury has finally left its Retrograde cycle! 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 December 6th after being in its Retrograde (backward) cycle since November 16, 2018, so over the coming weeks ahead, the problems we’ve been experiencing with communication, decision-making, and glitchy electronics will start to improve. Slowly, over the next few weeks will be able to make decisions once again. But be patient folks, as this energy doesn’t change overnight, it actually takes some time to get back to normal. Just be thankful that Mercury is back on the right track again because that means so will our way of thinking. 


Any plans or projects you couldn’t get finished over the last few months can at least slowly get started with some potential for success. But we must start out very cautiously and take baby steps because we actually can be flooded with too much information and it can be overwhelming. This can make matters even more confusing and difficult to make sense of. Actually, it’s just good practice to wait before making any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking isn’t quite clear and there still can be major consequences for jumping ahead. 


During the Mercury in Retrograde Shadow period, we should take all necessary precautions, moving ahead slowly and not committing to anything long-term just yet! Make sure to back up computers and phones, get your passwords organized (if that’s possible, ha!) Make sure your Cloud Storage is working correctly and backed up. Keep up with your bills and make sure everything is organized and paid on time. These are just a few ways to ensure you won’t have to deal with some of the glitchy aftermaths that the Shadow Period can cause. 


In fact, this after “Shadow Phase” of Mercury Retrograde coupled along with all the other energies and the powerful New Moon can simply be too much energy to handle and very distracting. The clarity we seek isn’t readily available under this changeable energy. This Shadow period is about processing what we have learned during the actual Retrograde Cycle. Mercury’s Retrograde cycle might have thrown you completely off balance, but the question is what lessons did you learn? What challenges or changes did Mercury Retrograde bring up? Take advantage of this Shadow period, until Mercury goes completely back to normal around December 25th.


For example, maybe you realized your judgemental BFF or friend was just reacting to how you have been slowly, or passive-aggressively been critiquing or criticizing their lives! Oops! The second half of the Shadow Phase is when you really can start participating in a new more kind way of expressing how you feel to your friend. So take some time to explain how their actions are bugging you and why. This can be what fixes the friendship enough to keep it together. 


Try to wait out making any sudden moves if at all possible, and if you’re needing to make any major changes just try to wait until after December 25th when the After-Shadow phase of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle is over. Enjoy!!

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!

5:57 AM EST
4:47 AM CST

2:57 AM PST

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.

New Moon in Aries

New Moon in Aries
April 15, 2018
wp-1458575933886.jpg

On Sunday evening, April 15th the New Moon occurs in the Sign of Aries!

This means you have an opportunity to tap into your creative and courageous side, so take some time starting now to write your Intentions or Wishes down during this New Moon, and see what it is exactly that ignites the fire inside you! This will help you move forward in life. This is a time of inspiration, so you should be focused on what you’d like to create next in your life so you can make your dreams a reality!

New Moon’s are a time of opportunity, and when something new can begin.

This particular New Moon is in fiery Aries, so it is quite strong and potent. This is actually the first New Moon of the “Astrological” New Year, which started on March 20 during the Spring Equinox.

Uranus the messenger and this New Moon both in Aries, make a connection that certainly can liven things up!

Our freedom and sense of independence become more important than usual. Certain generations are being affected quite strongly by the planet of revolution and freedom, Uranus already! This is why there’s such a strong resistance movement underway. And therefore some of you have already been experiencing a surge of energy, that’s pushing you to get out there and fight for certain causes no matter the cost. You need your freedom and space to do things your way!

During this New Moon, some folks can get quite a wake-up call!

This is a sudden awareness about your true calling, destiny, or higher purpose in life. Therefore it can bring in some challenges, but this can help you move past your fears and insecurities, so you’ll take a risk, a leap of faith perhaps, and go after what it is you truly want or desire! The Uranian influence surrounding this New Moon makes it much easier to surrender the ego-driven part of ourselves that doesn’t allow us to just flow with unexpected events so this can help us learn how to change. This particular New Moon is trying to teach us how to be excited about our path in life, and how to follow our passion and trust the Universe enough to let go of any control we think we have and surrender.

The Sun in Aries this month helps strengthen our willpower and desire.

The sign of Aries is part of each and every one of us, (all the Signs of the Zodiac are actually in our Astrology Birth Charts). Aries energy is known for being a Trailblazer that creates a spark. This is a gift from the Cosmos that helps stir up our passions, which creates the fire inside us to move forward and manifest something hopefully new and exciting! If we learn how to handle this New Moon energy with respect and make more positive changes, hopefully, we’ll experience some major transformations.

Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Aries currently, and it goes Direct from being Retrograde on the same day as the New Moon!

Hooray! This is a sign that we can get moving forward again in some area of our life. Since March 22nd (and even back in February during the shadow Retrograde phase), we have been slowed down! As annoying as Mercury in Retrograde can be, it has been trying to help us reconnect with our deepest desires, as it’s brought up the past to learn from through both people and situations. Mercury wants us to unplug from the world and reconnect with ourselves, so we can come out of it renewed and refreshed, but it is challenging living in the time of technology and information. There’s an opportunity to move forward now since we have a new perspective as mental Mercury stations or comes to a stop to move forward and out of Retrograde!

Also, Mercury is meeting up with Chiron the Wounded Healer, which is in its last degree of Pisces.

Chiron is about to shift signs and move into the sign of Aries for the first time in 49 yrs on April 17th! With Chiron in Aries, we take an on our emotional wounds like Warriors, and are no longer going to be in the mood to feel victimized or held down by our pain! This new Chiron energy coming in can help us move away from our trauma like never before. So get ready folks it’s time to heal in a big way!

The sign of Aries is ruled by passionate Mars!

This reminds us to work on ourselves by doing something brave that helps us to be more true to who we are as individuals. Mars is currently in the sign of Capricorn, which helps us to be more focused, disciplined, and willing to use the Aries fire so we can move forward in the right direction and therefore be more productive.

There’s a very strong Saturn influence hanging over this New Moon as well.

Saturn’s influence helps us to be less impatient and impulsive and work on being more strategic and work on long-term planning. On the other side of these energies, we don’t want to let our fears or insecurities stop us from being brave enough to take action. So to make this a successful New Moon we should blend the Aries and Capricorn energies together by taking strategic risks, putting in the time to do the work, and trusting the process the Universe puts us through, no matter what that looks like.

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!

Look Ahead Forecast – Special Edition
by Ruby
 

This coming Week will be a very busy time for the Cosmos! On August 26, loving Venus moves into bolder Leo. So all you Leo Sun or Rising Signs can really shine for the next three weeks in this energy, get out there and take some selfies. But for everyone else it can be a great time to make deals or do some bargain shopping, just hold off on the big purchases until after Sept. 5th when Mercury comes out of Retrograde. This energy can make for strong romantic attractions, but also for overly aggressive love, so take it easy! This is a lucky time for most of us generally speaking as Venus will stay in Leo through Sept 20th. Enjoy!

Also, Saturn has gone directly now folks and remains in the sign of Sagittarius, so life finally starts moving again. This energy will help all of us start moving forward again in some specific area of our life. Something will come back around and you will feel it! The forward movement of Saturn brings about beginnings and onto very important journeys, so whatever path we end up on can be with the right people and in the right places.

Saturn is our COSMIC TEACHER!

He helps guide us towards our destiny. Saturn remains in Sagittarius for another four months, but the last few months of any Saturn aspect can feel harsh. Especially, if we haven’t done what we are supposed to be doing and learned our lessons. Maturity is always an issue with this planet. If you start to feel like life isn’t going in the direction it should be and you are having constant blocks or restrictions pop up, then there is something you need to learn or change. Take some time to figure out your life and the paths you are on. The answers aren’t that cryptic or that difficult to see, it’s right in front of you! Once you have accepted and learned what it is you should be doing in some way, you will be rewarded when Saturn moves into the sign it rules Capricorn by the New Year.

On the 27th, Jupiter makes a nice connection to Saturn in Sagittarius

This is one of the rarest and best Astrological Aspects left this year!

Jupiter makes a rare, yet strong connection to the great Cosmic Teacher, Saturn, and this hasn’t happened in 13 yrs and won’t happen again for 6 more. These two heavy hitting planets working together can equal success for you and make things a little easier. Do something proactive in regards to a personal or professional goal. This weekend can be the perfect time to make something big happen!

Things get moving and life changes rather quickly for so many of you now, as we start to notice many of these changes are for the better, finally! Some of you have already started to release parts of yourself that just don’t work or serve you anymore, and other people are opening their eyes and seeing the roles they took on the last decade (at one point), just don’t match up with who they really are anymore. Karma is getting broken, so it’s time to stop doing something you took on over the past twelve years because you aren’t that person now, and if something you are doing just feels off or if you don’t feel it in your soul, cut your losses and let it go!

The rest of this year can be a Wake-Up Call! The Cosmos has been showing us just who we truly are and what parts of our life don’t’ make sense. Over the next few weeks, we will get even more clear because we can feel it in our soul! You can do something with this newfound clarity, especially now that the Sun has moved into more detailed Virgo this week. Virgo energy affects all of us, no matter your Sign, and pushes us to do something different that aligns more with who we truly are and our authentic-self, so we can live our lives in our truth and in the way we are meant to. It can take some time to process all this information, so go ahead and take some time to reflect on this and really think about your life now and what you want to break free from and change. The answers you seek are coming soon and they can change your life.

Over the last few weeks, you might have realized something about yourself or your life that you just don’t like and now over the coming weeks all this Virgo energy can help you create some changes that you want to make. This can be quite a powerful month indeed, for many different reasons. But here’s the thing you have to stay away from the more negative toxic people and situations, so if you cause trouble and frustrate people to the point of arguing, you will more than likely end being left alone and made to feel very isolated. So work on this and stop yourself, it’s not a good time to cause friction with others, it can cut you off from the ones who can actually help you down the road. We are supposed to take this time to work together and create positive changes now!

Over the next month or so the energies will be more aligned with what brings about peace, harmony, and finding balance. If you can achieve that, you can be very successful in whatever you set out to do. However, this can be a tricky time, so we can easily get tripped up and start fights fairly quickly. The bottom line is if you want to be successful than stay positive with other people. The way the planets are forming now is very unique, and folks who are negative, argumentative, or who have ill intentions might be forced to leave or change. This rather strange energy will start coming together soon, and it can be very positive for those of us who don’t choose to get caught up in negativity. These planetary influences are going to really raise our vibrations and will kick out the negative people, by making them feel like they can’t stay in situations or relationships. They will have to work on raising their vibrational energy, by acting kind or simply leave.

Relationships are going to go through a huge shift! Breakups will be inevitable and many bad relationships will end, and some even divorce. The Universe is bringing us New Beginnings and more positive energies will start to come back in our lives. It is the time to leave that bad job or a negative situation and move on towards what you really need or want. It’s a good time to start releasing what you can’t control over to the Universe and surrender your problems to them. Allow this energy to help you! As good deed and positive acts will bring about some pretty good rewards. Focus on what it is you need to release and allow the Universe to bring you more peace and miracles now, so you can get through the more tough or challenging times that may arise.

On September 5th Mercury will finally come out of Retrograde and move forward again, and then a Full Moon in Pisces will occur on the 6th, and you can feel pushed to move forward with your life. Between September 6th and the 21st is a major turning point in our lives. The best way to work through this time is to detach yourself from negative situations, attitudes, and people, or anyone you might have been around for a long time who is toxic, stop wasting your time with these folks. These situations can be very draining and they don’t support or promote your growth or happiness. But once you do some releasing work, you will free up some space for the better more positive energies and people to come into your life.

The recent Eclipses were very strong, and the energies have shifted and we are feeling these effects deep inside ourselves, something is starting to stir up within you, because you want to get ahead and move forward in some way, well that time is now! In the month ahead, the energies can actually assist you, so if you would like to know more in this moment about how the Cosmos is going to be affecting you personally, get with me for a “Mini Astro Report”. Just ask me for a “September Astro Report”, and I will do the research needed to send you a detailed report with all your upcoming Astrology info., based on your own personal Birth Chart, this hopefully will help you get through these influences better and move towards something more positive and fulfilling. (These Reports do have a Fee and our by email only.)

MERCURY Goes Direct! 

Happy Mercury Goes Direct! 
by Ruby

Mercury in Retrograde is finally turning direct today, YAY!

If you don’t follow Astrology, then maybe you should at least read this!

Did you experience the energies feeling off and slowed down, and end up feeling somewhat frustrated and confused over the last month or so? Well, Mercury in Retrograde influence causes electronic glitches and snafus, and strange misunderstandings, as our perspective is skewed. And strange weather events see 24m to occur at the beginning and end of Mercury Retrograde cycles.

Mercury appeared to be heading backward (Retrograde) for the last three weeks, and this has caused some major frustrations, (that wasn’t including the annoying three week period before it’s initial Retro phase, called the “Shadow Period” as it slowed down to enter into it’s Retro. cycle)

Don’t get too excited just yet, as I wouldn’t start anything brand new at this time, and I know many of you are just waiting to initiate something, but this is not a time for conclusions or resolutions, at least not just yet.

Mercury has to now pick up the pace, as it’s going the right way once again and get back to its normal speed, this adjustment period lasts for two weeks. So communications, electronic glitches, and misunderstandings will slowly calm down over the coming days and weeks.

It’s really a one day at a time situation, especially right now, this can actually be the most confusing week of the whole Mercury in Retrograde cycle! So unless you want to have to go back and redo something, again and again, I highly suggest you take things very slowly.

The planet Mercury is known as the “Messenger” of the Zodiac, it rules over how we communicate, think, and process information.

Mercury in Retrograde helps us to better understand and discover some important truths as well. The past has shown up in one way or another for a reason, and that is to help us see things from a different perspective, or in a different way. This is so we can be far away enough from a past situation to gain clarity. Then we can make better choices that lead us on to a new path that is more fit for what it is we truly want and desire, once Mercury is headed the right way again.

Hindsight is 20/20!

In hindsight things are obvious that were not obvious from the outset; one is able to evaluate past choices more clearly than at the time of the choice.

What we should be doing now that Mercury is headed in the right direction, is wrap up any old business we haven’t yet finished, so soon we can start something new and fresh. If you don’t want to get held up or back again then it’s best to wait it out and take things slowly over the next few weeks, and towards mid-May, you can start new projects and adventures, like a new job or relationship.

It’s also a great time to take all that information you gathered during Mercury in Retrograde and sort through it. Start planning out specific goals, clear out spaces, and get organized. Prepare for your future success story!

During Mercury’s Retrograde phase we had an opportunity to review our lives from a new perspective. Which makes it a good time to focus on what we have learned and observed. And soon enough we’ll  be able to use that information to help move forward again.

Hopefully, over the next few weeks, whatever problems we encountered during Mercury’s Retro cycle will start to clear up.

But today’s energies can feel way off balance, and a little slowed down. There’s a whole bunch of information coming in now that can flood our minds. This can be confusing to make sense of it all right now.

So I suggest to not make any major changes or decisions just yet, as I can’t stress that enough! Our thinking is still somewhat off and there’s information we haven’t even got yet to take into consideration. 

Give Mercury time to get back to its normal pace, and enjoy that it’s nearly over for now. Until late August, but I highly doubt you want me to discuss that one just yet, lol.
