Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde – Deeper Thoughts

Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween October 31st, 2019 and runs through November 17, 2019.


Mercury is currently in the sign of Scorpio, this is a deep, potent, psychological energy. Therefore we go into a more private introverted place that has us exploring the deeper parts of our minds and psyche, as we learn truths that come from the depths of our souls. What is considered to be taboo or secret comes out in the open. The truth comes out to be told! The sign of Scorpio, after all, is the sign of regeneration, as it teaches all of us that sometimes we must fall to pieces and let something end or die off to start over again. 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 go much deeper than usual while in this cycle and uncover ways to improve our lives and ourselves.

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 (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take some time off from our responsibilities if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.

Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets 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 Rx cycle does is help us to take a breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to research, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.

Mercury rules over our minds and how we process information, so this is a time to observe our lives from an outside perspective, which is truly a gift. From this space, we have the rare opportunity to see the contrast in our lives and what is working and what isn’t. The only problem is we live in a time of INFORMATION and after all, Mercury is the planet that delivers info, but during its Retrograde cycles, it wants us to simply UNPLUG and take a step back from our normal everyday routines and lives, and to not be online or on our phones, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT! But if we were to stop using all of our electronic devices and take work off, and simply review our lives it would be a much better experience. The reality is only a few of you reading this are actually able to do this. So the challenge is in learning how to handle Mercury in Retrograde and still do our lives. Those of you who already pay attention to Mercury in Rx’s cycles understand just how annoying all the misunderstandings, electronic glitches, and snafus can be! So the bottom line is we should learn how to put our phones down from time to time and just simply do life, as this is a time of deep inner reflection.


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 Minds and Communication is foggy and cloudy.

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 any info gathered.
  • 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 before 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 is no longer working, especially in your intimate relationships.

There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that perhaps didn’t cross your mind. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option. Try not to allow any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing to upset you too much.

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.

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, so remember trying to rationalize everything at this time will just probably cause you more confusion. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, 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 started.

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 once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now and plan ahead. 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 differently, and Mercury and the Sun are both in the sign of Scorpio this time around, the truth tends to come out! Certain things that have been suppressed, hidden, secret or unknown suddenly are shown to us during this time. 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 starting November 17, 2019.

Have a safe Mercury in Retrograde,

July’s Astro Forecast

For All Zodiac Signs 


On July 1, Mars the planet of passion, aggression, and drive entered the sign of Leo where it stays through August 18. Mars does well when it’s in a fire sign like Leo, this gives us back some motivation back to make things move forward. You might even feel pushed to get something done, but make sure it’s something you really want first. This energy can give us endurance while Mars the planet that helps us with physical movement is in Leo. Take this time to get some things done, as you will have at times a tremendous amount of energy. All the fire signs really can benefit from this influence, so Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo’s. But we all are feeling it!

On July 2, an intense Solar Eclipse in the sign of Cancer occurred. Eclipses bring change and this one continues to bring huge shifts and changes that will affect anything to do with home and family matters. Eclipses also bring about significant endings and new beginnings! This particular Eclipses influence is basically around our home base and concerning our family with it in the sign of Cancer. This has opened up issues that need to be worked on and these problems are awful hard to ignore, as the Eclipse has put them right up in our face to deal with. It is believed that whatever issues this Eclipse has brought up can be felt for up to 6 months after it occured, so it can be difficult if we don’t choose to deal with them. With this Eclipse occurring in the sign of Cancer we are extremely sensitive about these issues, so don’t allow yourself to hide and sulk, make sure to take care of whatever needs to be worked on.

On July 3, Venus moved into the sign of Cancer until July 27. This helps all the Zodiac Signs to be more soft and easy-going, so we can build upon on our serious and intimate relationships, and this will also lead to serious commitments in our relationships. This influence can also help you restore relationships that have suffered damaged both in love and within your family. But this energy also really pumps up all you Cancer Sun Signs, as you’ll be drawn to all that is beautiful. 

On July 7, Mercury goes Retrograde
This runs through July 31. All of us need to slow down and rethink things and just try to enjoy the rest of the summer, instead of allowing the other Cosmic Influences pushing us to make major changes. This affects all of us so make sure to take your time, and just expect technical glitches and misunderstandings to occur and don’t make a big deal out of them. 

On July 8, Mercury conjuncts Mars
People are riled up by this influence and can get quite nasty. So debates and arguments can happen quickly and without little warning! A war of words can be especially strong, so be extra careful with how you communicate, or you could land in a serious verbal throwdown. This also can make people more physically aggressive, and even violent so be careful. Choose your battles wisely!

On July 9, Sun opposes Saturn
This influence can feel overwhelming with pressure to get things done and to take care of business. But it’s important to not take on more than you usually do, and don’t try to take on a lot of difficult things during this time. So maybe take on only half of what you normally do. Because one or two tasks are going to feel like more than enough. Do whatever you can to not stress. 

On July 11, Sun Trines Neptune
This will be a lovely energy and a time for love and romance, or just hanging out with friends. This feel-good energy creates the best vibe to leave your worries behind from earlier in the week. We all can benefit from this positive energy. All you Pisces and Cancer folks can have an especially good day! 

On July 11, Mars squares Uranus
Also, be ready to change something as the planet of action receives some sort of surprising message from rebellious Uranus. You may have to stand up for yourself or get away from someone or some sort of circumstance. This will start being felt probably about 3 to 4 days prior to peaking out, and people tend to get quite worked up and anxious during its run. Just go with this energy, don’t let whatever it brings up in your life throw you too far off track. All our plans can use some new and fresh energy and ideas. This is a time to get creative and perhaps start something, but make sure you are honest with yourself when doing so. This aspect reminds us to do things our way even while other folks are given their opinions. 

On July 14, Sun opposes Pluto
The Sun opposes Pluto once a year marking the midway point of the Pluto Retrograde period that began on April 24. Any opposition is a culmination of forces already set in motion. With the Sun in homebody Cancer and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn, it is important to create a balance between your personal family life with your worldly and career goals. Pluto’s themes of power help you to examine your own places in your life that you have control or power in. Often this aspect, brings someone or something in your world that opposes you causing you to take a better look at the power you share with others or the balance in power you have in your relationships.  Is it time to step up and take on your own power or perhaps let go of the control? 

On July 16, Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Capricorn
The Full Moon occurs in steady, grounded Capricorn, and a partial Lunar Eclipse which is basically a supercharged and intense Full Moon also comes together. This is when the Earth’s shadow falls between the Sun and the Moon, this is typically the brightest lunation of the month, but it will be shadowed by darkness due to the Eclipse. This is an emotional high tide, as we get to experience why we are feeling so flooded by emotions. With this being in the sign of Capricorn the sign of responsibility and authority, and the Moon conjuncts Pluto and Saturn, you may just get a stronger sense of what you want to be responsible for anymore and what you don’t. You can make the most of this energy by finding some sort of balance between your personal and professional life. As this illumination comes forth things like shadows, secrets, and repressed feelings that might have seemed too big or scary to get your attention and expression before come alive! Changes that have been occurring sort of behind the scenes and deep within ourselves are brought up and out to deal with first hand, and we can see significant changes and completions.

On July 19, Mercury while Retrograde re-enters Cancer
The planet of communication returns back into the sensitive sign of Cancer, so it’s important to pay attention to what you are thinking about the most in your conversations over this last week of July. You can come back and look at your ideas later and revisit whatever you need to. For now, your thoughts and words are infused with emotion, which can actually help you out. Just make sure to speak from the heart and let your words take it from there, anything we communicate will be able to help folks understand what you are trying to say. Be patient with others and objective. 

On July 22nd, the Sun Enters Leo, (Leo Season Begins)
The Sun moves into the sign of fiery, cautious, dramatic Leo. During this time our aggression and passion run stronger than usual, and there can be ego trips and battles. We tend to express ourselves from the heart in a more authentic way! So there will be a whole lot of truth-telling going around, and oversharing. This influence can help us feel more optimistic and confident, so we can make important contacts and strengthen bonds with our current tribe and lovers if we try. This is a time to have some fun and enjoy yourself, let your inner child out to play.

On July 31, New Moon in Leo
A New Moon always signals a new beginning and this one is in a fire sign that ignites your creativity and passion. Don’t let anything hold you back from pursuing your goals. This is a great time to accept invitations to events and parties, start a new hobby, or sign up for a class. Whatever you do, start something whether you pursue a dream, an idea, plan or project. As always, at any New Moon, invest in what you want to grow or become more important in your life by Setting Your Intentions with the Moon’s energy! This also happens to be the second New Moon in one month, therefore, it is called a Black Moon and this is super strong, potent energy that can be very helpful. 

On July 31, Mercury goes direct!
Mercury Retrograde periods can be annoying and quite difficult to navigate that is for sure, but they are also the best times for gathering information and returning to old ideas and conversations. Hopefully, you have used these last three weeks, to review your options and reconsider some of your plans. If you have held off on making important decisions, your patience is now rewarded. Don’t be shy about letting people know what you want, and reach out to those who can help you. It’s time to communicate what you have learned and move forward with your plans.


What a crazy month folks, with so many twist and turns! There will be lots of changes under the two Eclipses, Mercury’s Retrograde cycle, and a Saturn/Pluto Aspect to deal with. However, don’t feel too badly, because looking ahead August feels so much better, at least overall. It looks like it will be a month of relief that we so desperately will need from some of the wild more unpredictable Eclipse energies we are dealing with now, so its energies will be a welcome change.


Looking ahead to August of 2019, it looks to be like a time to work on our health and build up our immune systems while we can, at least before we get into late fall. As this year looks to be an extreme cold and flu season, due to Neptune being in its own sign of Pisces and in Retrograde. This increases illness, as many of you are already experiencing. So we can beat this if we get prepared ahead of time. Mars also will be making some harsh aspects to the Sun in Virgo with Neptune and Uranus involved, so that can also lower our immunity as well. So please start boosting your immune system this summer any way you can. 

Have an amazing July,

Mercury in Cancer – Sincere Communication

*For All Zodiac Signs*

 
Mercury enters the sign of more sensitive, and stronger feeling Cancer later today, on June 4th. This transits runs through June 29th! But we will have to retrace our steps back into Mercury in Cancer in July when Mercury goes Retrograde!
 
 
For now, with Mercury in Cancer, we communicate with our hearts and emotions first. We think, speak, and take in information on a deeper emotional level now. We tend to follow our gut instincts more so now, which is helpful if we listen to our intuition.

 

This transits influence makes us less interested in what’s happening in the real world. We can be sort of selfish, as we go more inward with our thoughts and feelings. We are more concerned about what affects us personally, which includes more focus being put on the people that are near and dear to our hearts and upbringing.

 

Our thoughts are more colored by our emotions and how we are feeling, which can make it more challenging to be objective or fair, although this energy can help us feel our thoughts out first before expressing them. Which means we are more sincere and authentic. This can produce stronger moments of pessimistic thinking, or negative thoughts, so we must be more mindful and perhaps work harder at thinking more positive. Some folks tend to be shyer during this time, and will need to be reassured to feel safe enough to be vulnerable. But this influence does help our communications to be more authentic and loving at times, but also full of emotions.

 

Communicate From Your Soul

Astro Monthly Forecast for June 2019


June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end. 


The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy. 

Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!


On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.


On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long. 


Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances. 


On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.


The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well. 


On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune, this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.


June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow periodMercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!


Happy Summer Solstice.
Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!

On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.

The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.

The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.


On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes with what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self more. 


On June 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.


Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at healingruby@gmail.com or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings,

April Astrology Forecast

April is a busy month, so get ready folks, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all going into Retrograde phases this month, it’s a time for reassessment around what you are doing in your life. And with four planets in magical Pisces, the focus is more on imagination and illumination than practical matters. This period is wonderful for creativity and spiritual exploration but it’s best to wait until at least April 5th before making decisions that require focus, or a the very least some careful thought and consideration.

Since our plans and projects will be under such an intense review throughout the month of April we must make sure an align our goals with our life’s purpose. It’s also a good time to stop any activities that just are simply holding you back, or aren’t serving you. Quit wasting valuable time and energy. If you take the time to review your goals and plans this month than you’ll probably see progress in the fall when things really take off again. But for now, you have some lessons to get through and hopefully learn from.


April 2nd – Creative Confusion 

Mercury just recently out of its Retrograde cycle (but still in the after Rx Shadow phase through the 16th) makes a powerful connection to Neptune the king of dreams and escape. Mercury rules our mind and how we think, communicate, and perceive information. Neptune rules over things like our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. This influence can inspire you and others, so you may feel highly creative. This also can help you communicate your dreams to the person you adore. 

But it’s also causing confusion with mental Mercury just in the after-Shadow period of Retrograde, also in Pisces, as well as Neptune. All in all, this energy can make things unclear and foggy. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t get ripped off or scammed, deception is in the air right now. Find ways to be inspired, get creative and this fog will finally be lifting for good in a few days.


April 4th – Power Moves 

Powerful Pluto makes an intense connection to the Lunar South Node point both in the sign of Capricorn. Some folks could try to make bold moves to gain power or control during this time. So there may be some pretty wild upheavals. There can be ego battles that can be destructive in one way or another. If you force issues on others without taking responsibility for your own actions it can backfire on you. This is not a good time to just go after things on a whim without seriously taking consideration your consequences. Take some time to evaluate your goals and make plans for your next move, so you can get what it is you really want, but just make sure to not bump heads along the way, or it will only cause you more problems. 


April 5th – New Moon in Aries – New Beginnings

There’s a New Moon in the sign of Aries occurring and whatever you’ve been planning or working on can finally start to get moving. This energy gives us a chance to breathe new life into already existing projects. This is all about “New Beginnings” in a big bold way! As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about courage, and it gives us a huge dose of higher confidence and energy to take on our tasks, projects, and goals and make things happen! The Pluto-South Node alignment is also occurring around the same time frame, so this can help us to be more practical, even if we are more daring with new and innovative ideas.  If you already know enough to make an informed decision, it’s important to not be indecisive. Try to be patient and look for more information around the next Full Moon on April 19 that will help you know what to do next. 


April 10 – A Reality Check 

The Sun is making a tense Square formation with taskmaster Saturn. It’s important to know what responsibilities you want to take on and what you don’t, it’s a good time for some assessment of your life. as you will be challenged to rid of the things that you are doing too much of or that might be taking up to much of your time and energy. It’s no longer “go big or go home,” instead your mantra for this time should be, “go small or give in! Create balance around what you want and that is for the greater good of everyone. 


April 10 – Take a Step Back 

Giant Jupiter is going to be making its yearly backward trip as it enters its Retrograde cycle for nearly four months.  Making progress will come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection into what gives your life deeper meaning, and what helps you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde it can seriously slow us down as it’s an influence is more intense feeling. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from feeling happy or satisfied. 
Every now and then the Universe has a way of making us take a time out to review our lives, to make sure that our plans and projects are still what we want and need. Through August 11th is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals, and to rid of any distractions that waste your time, energy, and money! Don’t worry about the projects that slowly go to the waste side, as they were a waste of your time anyway, During this cycle whatever plans don’t make the cut will turn out to probably be a blessing in disguise. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. You got a long time to sort it all out. If you happen to know your Astrology Birth Chart, you can look up just exactly what part of your chart this cycle is cruising through to get more information. 


April 13 – Power Moves 

The Sun is making a tense Square to potent Pluto! With the Sun’s transit through the sign of Aries, most of us are trying to initiate something, but we might have to deal with some powerful energies for a few days. Perhaps a person who has their own agenda or situation might ask you to change something up that throws your original plans out the window! It’s a time to be paying close attention and for being more mindful of other folks needs, besides your own. You can’t always take and take from others and expect something if you are not giving anything back in return. You can also be challenged in some way to make sure you are empowering yourself. Don’t be stubborn and don’t give everything away either. You will know when the time comes what you need to do if you pay attention to your signs and messages from the Universe during this powerful few days. 


April 17 – Quick Thinking 

The planet of communication Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries that brings amazing new insights and flashes of genius. This can help us take any plans or projects we might have new directions. Just make sure these directions are on a path towards your life’s purpose in some way and not a huge detour. Take this time to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging, as this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that Aries is known for being the God of War. It’s not a time to be debating or arguing or you can get caught up in all the negative drama and those great ideas won’t get moving forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this transits that will run through May 6th.


April 19 – Full Moon in Libra – Balancing the Chaos

When the Sun in Aries makes a tense but exciting connection to the Moon in Libra a Full Moon will occur. We are just coming out of the New Moon cycle at this point that started on April 5th. This Full Moon cycle is at what’s called the critical degree or anaretic degree, this means completion and marks the end of one cycle and the evolution into another. This Full Moon in Libra, the sign of balance and integration, encourages us to find ways to leave behind anything that is standing in our way of finding balance. Something might have to come to an end in order for us to find peace and harmony. This is also a time of culmination as you get a chance to take a step back and see if you are doing right by others and if you are paying attention to the folks in your life and their needs and desires. It’s all about being fair as our sense of justice is stronger than usual, put your focus on strengthening the bonds in your current relationships. Even though the Full Moon is always a time of endings, it is a time to work on releasing the energies that no longer are working for you. But this will be a social Full Moon time, so it’s a great energy to have a party under or to spend some time with a close BFF, and since Libra is about relationships maybe have a romantic dinner with the object of your affection.


April 20 – Sun enters Taurus

This Sun cycle is a time when we simply slow down, but we are also more determined, patient, and stubborn. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable. This is a great help with so many other cosmic connections during this time speeding things up, we can take a time out and look more closely at events unfolding around us or any complicated situations we are involved in with some common sense. This transit highlights things that are pleasing, beautiful, and attractive. This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up camp for the next month to make sure you have a safe and cozy place to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we enjoy more so, whatever pleases the senses, with things like food, music, entertainment, and sexual activities, (especially with Mars in the sign of Gemini as well, bow-chicka-bow-wow) we can have an incredibly sexy month. This cycle runs through May 21st.


April 20 – Blazing Love

The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, this brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. This cycle brings love on rather quickly, relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient. Even though we can much more direct than usual with the folks we love and care for, some of you might be more reserved about your deeper emotions, and if you are feeling insecure you can get kind of aggressive or mean, especially if someone isn’t validating or expressing love back. This can cause some folks to be more sneaky and strategic when it comes to matters of the heart or anything involving money. Under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t look back to the past, it is a time to move forward. Each day is looked at as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more. We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fiery energy to reignite their passions, and if single love that is initiated now can sizzle out fast. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you want a new commitment around love or money, but also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term unless you are just looking for a hookup! This will run through May 15th. 


April 22 – Exciting Journeys 

A new exciting journey begins with the Sun making a connection called a “conjunction” to more unpredictable Uranus! This can be a liberating experience as we move forward from old habits and ways of thinking, especially about ourselves. Staying positive is key to being successful under this cycle, as it may not be as stable as some would like, but good things can happen. It’s a time to put your past behind you where it belongs, and keep an open mind about other people and embrace new thoughts and ideas. Most of all stay true to yourself and honor other people’s desire to express who they are and their own unique qualities. 


April 24 – Power Plays – Pluto Retrograde

Powerful Pluto challenges us on how we use and gain personal power, when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough of power, and others are nervous when they have more, and then there are a few folks who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around well, power, people rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays for power made. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else and their life or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out to how to move forward in ways that make us happy, just be careful about who’s toes you step on or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.


Saturn Retrograde

April 29 – Saturn goes Retrograde – Taking Responsibility

Saturn the planet of rules and boundaries goes into its yearly Retrograde phase. This is a time when we must review our lives and make sure what we going after is exactly what we still want. This Retro period lasts through September 18th. During this Retro cycle, we are taken back over territory that we probably have already been through at one point. Saturn is about taking our responsibilities, rules, and boundaries more seriously. So there are going to be areas of your life that are important to go back over and review, to see what you can do to make these situations more secure. This can be a frustrating time, so we have to face possible limitations, barriers, or working on ending habits that aren’t so good for our future long-term success. 


April 30 – Saturn in Retrograde gets a boost!

To further enhance Saturn in Retrogrades energies, Saturn is in a conjunction with the Lunar South Node point. You may want to think about what you are being responsible for? Are you taking other folks burdens on or taking care of other people’s obligations? Do you think you should be the one in charge and are telling everyone else what you think they should be doing? Are you taking the steps to fix things when something comes up or are you enabling bad behavior? During this cycle, it’s time to go over your responsibilities and let go of old habits, old learned behaviors, and ways of thinking around who’s in charge and why!

Mercury Goes Out of Retrograde

Mercury in Retrograde – March 2019

Mercury in Retrograde starts today – March 2019

So how will it affect you? And how can you use this time to your advantage?


Mercury the planet of communication, perception, and travel goes into its first Retrograde of 2019, occurring in the sign of healing Pisces from March 5 – 28, and at 29 degrees, which is the anaretic degree or point of crisis (which tends to be harsher at this point.) This Mercury in Retrograde cycle seems to resurrect old situations or problems that we thought we were done and over with, only for us to have to deal with all over again. This is a time when we need a lot of rest, and to really focus on being kind to one another. Some folks might be quite mean or cruel, but don’t allow yourself to go there, instead focus on being kind and compassionate. This is a time to make sure and set some healthy boundaries, as we are more susceptible and vulnerable to manipulation and deception, especially during the last part of Mercury in Retrograde at the end of March when Mercury is conjunct Neptune, Pisces ruling planet. This can cause our thoughts to be foggy and can make things even more confusing, and it being Retrograde time it can even stronger than usual. 


It’s important to remember that just because Mercury is in Retrograde we shouldn’t stop our lives! This cycle gives us a chance to reflect on our past and search our own belief system in a more deep spiritual way. For this next three weeks there’s an opportunity to connect stronger to our own feelings and how we can meet our own personal needs. This process can be very internal as we should be doing things for ourselves, learning how to understand who we by being kind and compassionate. I invite you to talk to your version of divinity, the powers that be, the God of your understanding or knowiness. And ask what you can do for you, and how can you take better care of yourself?


Now that you have this info, the question is what can you do with it? Well here is some advice on how to survive a Mercury in Retrograde cycle.


First off always read over what you’re doing, and read it again and don’t sign any contracts unless it’s something you have to do, or make any new commitments again unless it’s something you have to do right away.


If you decide to do business during this cycle, make sure to ask for a second opinion, and be aware of the details for the next three to five weeks, because you should think about the more wonky time of Mercury’s Retrograde phase, which is the after Shadow time for 2 weeks after its Retrograde cycle, as things are slowly getting back to normal, it can be intense for some. Make sure to check in with your own intuition or higher-self, and stay open-minded as much as possible when making decisions. If you have any resources with someone else, like in a relationship or financially, this is a good time to go over the details.


Negotiations can go well if you make minor adjustments, but no permanent commitments during this cycle. Going over details can benefit you, do anything it takes to keep from overlooking important details or miscommunication. I have seen first hand how Mercury in Rx cycles can cause misunderstandings, as we can get easily frustrated with each other without any real rhyme or reason, it might just not make sense! Also, make sure your tolerant to being asked questions over and over, but be open to the fact that our perception has dipped down into a lower vibrational energy that causes real issues for all of us, and that it may never make sense.


This is a great time to re-evaluate and re-organize your life, work on our thought patterns and how you make decisions. You can walk away from this cycle learning a very valuable tool what works for you and what doesn’t in a deeper way. This cycle provides time for us to do-over anything we want, you can retrace your steps and make things better now. Remember planets go Retrograde all the time, you have lived through many Mercury in Retrograde cycles before and more than likely you will get through this one as well. Mercury also rules our minds and our day-to-day decisions, so when it comes to communication make sure that you pay attention, read over anything again and if you don’t understand, and ask if you head things right the first time, and also use spell check because you’re going to need it! 


Often during a Mercury in Rx friends from the past, family members, and clients will pop back in our lives! Again this can be a good thing, this doesn’t need to be negative. But it does not necessarily mean if a lover or even a friend from the past shows up that is is meant to be or fated to be together forever, it simply means there is unfinished business or something you need to pay attention to heal, there is always a lesson in Mercury’s madness. 


It’s my wish for you to be educated more so on the benefits of this transit versus the negativity that Retrograde planets get, and I am not above it to be honest, as many Mercury in Retrograde cycles have hit me very hard, and if you know me you know how much I can dislike this time. But we are in this together, so perhaps together you can walk away using some of this advice and make the most out of this energy. When planets go Retrograde (Rx), the cosmos is giving us a second chance at something and even a third, because it allows you to retrace your steps three times, that’s how they work! So we get to go back and do things over, before moving forward again. Sometimes this is a huge blessing, as they say the second time around can be the best and even a third under this influence. 
May this Mercury in Retrograde cycle be a good one. 


Have a good Mercury in Retrograde, may it be a easy one for you.

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!!

December 2018 Astro Forecast

by Rubys Readings

Dec 1, 2018 – Dec 31, 2018



These are interesting times from an Astrological Standpoint and December of 2018 is no exception, mind you things should get a little easier or at least our day to day activities will start to calm down a bit, as the shifts occurring are going to help pull us from the strangeness of Retrograde madness that we have been in for so long. 


The first week of December we are already dealing with the Goddess herself Venus moving into the sign of Scorpio. This means all you sexy Scorpio’s will be even more sexy than usual! Ha! Venus in this sign makes for an extra attractive next several weeks for all the Signs, but if you are a Scorpio Sun or Rising Sign you should talk advantage of it. 


Also this month, our minds can be a bit obsessed with issues that are both fascinating and disturbing, when mental Mercury in Retrograde (backwards) moves back into the sign of Scorpio on Dec 1st, this brings back old theories, ideas, and suspicions about what truth lies beneath the surface. To learn more about Mercury’s shift back into the sign of Scorpio check out my website blog Mercury in Scorpio! 




MERCURY MOVES OUT OF RETROGRADE!!!!! 


Mercury stations direct on December 6th and leaves its Retrograde cycle. At this point, Uranus in fiery Aries will be the ONLY PLANET left in RETROGRADE until early January 2018, Woohoo! This will be a welcome break from all those planets in Retrograde starting last summer through late fall! 2018 has been a strong time for introspection and insight into ourselves, it was also a time of confusion. But we will be able to have more clarity around the way we both think and feel, and this helps us move forward and meet our goals for the upcoming year. 


Have you been having intense Dreams lately? Lots of folks have been having intense or vivid dreams lately, some about old lovers, family members, or friends that they haven’t seen for a while. Some of these dreams are more soul visitations, where we meet up with friends or lovers and just simply hang out and play catch up! With Mars and Neptune slowly coming together, it can bring in quite potent and vivid dreams or visitations from those who have crossed over. It’s a good idea to write them down because they can have special meaning later. 


CHALLENGES

There is a bit of challenging energy coming together from Dec 3-5 when the Sun makes a tense Square to fiery Mars and Neptune! Sneaky more unethical folks can be sneaking around trying to get anything they can from you. Pay attention and watch for those folks who claim to be something they are not or who are not what they appear to be. The more Narcissistic, underhanded people will be sniffing around more so than usual. This influence also brings a sort of sneaky energy out of the people you already know or are associated with in some way, or even those folks you do business with! So again pay attention and don’t let someone take advantage of you.



NEW MOON

There’s a New Moon coming together in the sign of quick-thinking Sagittarius, around midnight on Dec 6th here in the United States, or in the wee hours of the morning on the 7th depending on what time zone you live in. This is the most opportune time to Set Intentions for new beginnings and to do some sort of manifesting ritual. Basically, you’re just working with the Cosmic energies of the Moon in one way or another! 


This particular New Moon is heavily influenced by another connection or what’s called a conjunction between Mars and Neptune both in Pisces. This helps us focus more so on our spirituality as we can feel like doing something that helps us connect into the Universal energies, usually, this is a time when we have a lot of faith and our beliefs are stronger more so than usual with it being Sagittarius Season and all, but we tend to forget the truth about why we celebrate these Holidays in the first place, even though our faith in certain higher purposes or powers is stronger. In all actuality no matter what you believe in or faith you follow, this is a time that marks a new season and the Winter Solstice, but these influences just might help us discover the true meaning around why we celebrate the Holidays around the globe, and it’s much more than just buying each other gifts!


But a warning comes along with this energy, as folks tend to also overindulge and eat and drink too much. Do Not Drink And Drive during this time. Be cautious around folks who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This is a great weekend for Psychic Readings and Spiritual Classes, or for doing anything that helps with spiritual development, it’s just not so good for vices. 


There’s a long-term tense Square connection between reckless Uranus and the master of escape Neptune, it’s brought back to life for the last time on December 15th. This aspect has been setting the bar pretty high around raising our consciousness or awareness since mid-2017 and will run strong through mid-2019. But this has been a long time coming as this energy started actually a long time ago back in 1993, when these two planets aligned in Capricorn. 


The Solstice, Holidays, and New Years Astrological Preview



The Winter Solstice is on Friday, December 21st when the Sun Enters Capricorn and it officially becomes “Capricorn Season,” but at the exact same time loving Venus and dreamy Neptune are in perfect harmony. And mental Mercury is conjunct Jupiter, this is all some pretty amazing energy, to be honest folks. These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share. 



Then the Full Moon occurs on Saturday the 22nd, in its home sign of more sensitive Cancer. During the Christmas Holiday time, the Cosmos lines up and brings in the energy of fun as we feel more like being social, so throwing some sort of Holiday shindig in your own home can go quite well, since the Moon will be in the sign that loves its shell or home the most, Cancer. Traveling can be much easier the week before the Christmas Holiday, than the actual week of Christmas, as there are going to be delays and other unforseen obstacles for traveling during that time. 
This Full Moon period has a slightly restrained quality, with the masculine facets of the Sun and Saturn in Capricorn opposing the Cancer Moon’s feminine, intuitive energy.


On Christmas Day, the Moon will be in more generous Leo and even the rest of that week seems to be pretty calm, at least from an Astrological viewpoint!  


New Year’s Eve things change quite quickly when aggressive Mars moves into its home sign of fiery Aries, watch out folks if you don’t know how to handle this all or nothing kind of energy, then you can have some issues. Mars sparks the energy up to have a rocking New Year’s Eve but there will also be arguments, debates, and wild events with this more aggressive energy influencing us so strongly! 



If you would like to know just how any of these Astrological influences will be affecting you, you can purchase a Reading with me and I will do the research for you, just ask me, “What Does December Have In Store For Me?”

Mercury in Scorpio


by Rubys Readings



Mercury in Scorpio

December 1, 2018, until Dec 12, 2018


While mindful, mental Mercury is in the sign of soulful Scorpio from December 1st through December 12, our thoughts and communications are more deep and intense, we can be extremely sharp, profound, and analytical. Our way of thinking can also be one-track minded, focused, and even obsessive at times. But we’re also more active, witty, resourceful, perceptive, positive, determined, and inventive, as our minds are capable of great mental focus and concentration. We can be much more direct and to the point when communicating, and sometimes even offensive, as we tend to say what we feel and refuse to sugar coat things!


The truth tends to be sought out around all that is hidden, unknown, or unseen! So we tend to pay attention and dig deeper, as our focus and thoughts are strong and profound. We may search for ways to be more motivated to go deeper about anything intellectual, so whatever we are thinking or talking about tends to be looked at more deeply, and we may not know when to stop or when enough is enough! Our intuition and psychic abilities are also very strong, and at times we are capable of profound insights, we have a way of seeing people and events for their true authentic nature, as we tend to feel people’s true intentions no matter what they are communicating. We don’t like anything that is superficial or fake, especially when communicating we favor deep more meaningful conversations. 


Since the planet Mercury rules our thoughts and the way we communicate, our minds can be dominated by strong emotional undercurrents and desires with Mercury being in Scorpio, and this can overpower our way of thinking, especially around things like Sex. It is going to be a sexy time for sure under Scorpio’s influence, for all the signs! You might enjoy a good mystery or uncovering some sort of truth in any situation during this time, we also are more attracted to the occult and arts during this time.




ASTRO ALERT

Due to Mercury still being Retrograde (backward motion) while changing signs into Scorpio, we may continue to review or reassess our finances, relationships, motivations, and passions. This is an excellent period for getting in touch with our instincts, motivations, and more shadow-self. This is the time to explore your more intimate and emotional nature and just how it affects the way you make decisions and process. Our sensitivity levels will increase as well, as our emotional radar is strong. We need to watch for being overly paranoid mentally or perhaps reading negatively into what others are saying or communicating. Mercury Retrograde periods tend to send us to the past to further examine certain situations, or it brings in old hidden information, while in Scorpio, even more so! 



A LOOK AHEAD

Starting December 12 and through Jan 4, 2019, Mercury will move back into the sign of Sagittarius, but we’ve already been dealing with this energy since Halloween through December 1st. So once again folks, our way of thinking can move way to fast and we can act impulsively, but once Mercury Moves back into the sign of Sagittarius it does help us to think more positively and have more hope about our lives and future!

End of November’s Astro News!!


By Rubys Readings 


It’s time to start listening to your messages, I’m talking about the messages the Universe, the Cosmos or whatever you want to call it is trying to send to you. This week there’s going to be many signs from the Universe and they can show up in the most unusual, bizarre, and strange ways. But there will be some that are very clear. Many people believe that if they get a sign more than once especially if you get them twice, and definitely if you get them three times, that is not just a coincidence, it’s not something you should just ignore because it truly means something.


Good News!

We have been under an extremely intense energy, that’s also been sort of a sad really since October 3rd, with Venus the planet of love & money in Retrograde. But as of the 16th, Venus has gone direct again finally, so relationships and our finances can finally get back on track again. If you broke up with somebody during this time and you’re hoping to mend your relationships perhaps, you probably have more of a fighting chance with Venus back and moving the right way again. This Transit can possibly help you reconcile, but if that’s not always how these things work out, so if that’s what you are experiencing then the relationship was likely never meant to be or was supposed to end. So it’s been interesting but it’ll be even more interesting to see how this plays out over the coming weeks ahead because many of my clients and blog readers have had to come to terms with their relationships and make some very hard choices. Venus in Retrograde brought back a lot of old and past lovers, but most of these relationships didn’t probably work out, especially if they were brand new, but there was a reason that you needed to hang out with that person and I’m sure if you don’t already know you will understand it all soon enough!



Good Days for Romance

Mercury went into its complete Retrograde cycle on the 16th! And this Mercury in Retrograde is proving to be quite interesting thus far, it’s time to double-check everything you’re doing even if you think you’ve already done so, at least through December the 6th when this cycle ends. There will be a period of time after December 6th where communications can be kind of wonky, so for two weeks after we just have to get adjusted to Mercury going back to its normal pace, while it’s in it’s after Retrograde “Shadow Period.”



A Look Ahead

The Full Moon occurs on November 23/34, in the sign of Gemini. And you may gain some sort of clarity about an issue in your life. Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors.

Make sure to “Set Intentions” and this time make it more so around what you are wanting to release and let go of in your life, it can be anything from people, situations, to behaviors. 


Look for Signs 

Many of you have already been dreaming about your loved ones who have crossed over. 


With the Full Moon in Gemini approaching and Neptune in the sign of Pisces moving forward the same day, many of you will have some sort of visit from your relatives or loves ones in your dreams. It’s actually also pretty common around the Holiday Season and especially during Full Moon’s that people experience some sort of encounter with their loved ones who are passed. 


Often our loved ones come to visit us with messages, but sometimes they just come to check on us as well. And due to how much they are on our minds during the Holidays there’s much more activity when we miss them the most. So look for these visitations to happen more often as the energy of the Full Moon builds starting November 20th until it peaks on the 23rd. This also may include paranormal activity so the spirits can be a bit restless right now, as we did just get through Halloween and the Sun is still in Scorpio, hence it being still Scorpio Season, so the Veils between this world and the other side remains low right through the 25th or so! 


Secrets Exposed! 

The planet Neptune is also going direct on November 24th, so since June 18th, it’s been in Retrograde as well. What’s been hidden, unseen, or unknown is being revealed now, it’s hard to hide from our secrets. The cats out of the bag! So if you’ve already figured something out, then perhaps some of your secrets are out in the open. But there’s still time for some unexpected news or something hidden to come to light. 
Have a good week folks and remember if you have to express yourself right now be tactful and think about what you are saying first!
