Astrological Weekend General Astro News:

 

 

wp-1478190225412.jpg

 

Mental Mercury moved into the sign of Virgo this week, where it actually feels more comfortable, but this influence can cause overthinking and have you overdoing something, especially if it is mentally stimulating.

 

Saturn has gone direct from its Retrograde Cycle, hooray! You should start to notice feeling happier again, and that heavy weight being lifted off your shoulders. Saturn has been in Retrograde for nearly 5 months, this means you can start to make big moves forward again with goals and tasks you have been holding back on since April! You more than likely will be given more responsibility or be asked to take on more obligations now.

 

A rare few feel better under certain Retrograde cycles, depending on the planet and where it is located in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart! All Retrograde cycles are not the same because each time a planet goes into its Retrograde cycle it is in a different sign, so the effects they have can be very different for all of us.

 

Friday a lovely Earth “Grand Trine” came together involving Mercury, Saturn, and Uranus. This will be an excellent weekend for making plans and long-term goals. So get to work on your future folks, you have been waiting long enough, the time to take action and make moves is now!

 

On Saturday, September 8, all the couples out there need to be careful, as the Cosmic Lovers, Venus and Mars face off!

This can bring up drama and conflict in our intimate and close personal relationships, so it’s going to be all too easy to pick fights over the weekend, try to let your passions lead you to do other things instead of arguing. Get moving and burn off that energy!

 

On Sunday the 9th, Venus is shifting gears in a big way and moving into the sign of Scorpio, the dark mistress of the Zodiac, and this is going to be an interesting 3 weeks. If you are born with your Sun sign in Scorpio this energy can help you feel good and look good too if you choose to take advantage of it! Otherwise, all the other signs are going to feel more passionate about something or someone perhaps.

New Moon in Virgo

 

On Sunday the 9th, a New Moon comes together. Please take some time to “Set Intentions” or make out wish lists. Think about the things or energies you wish to bring to you or draw into your life over the next month. Perhaps it’s more money or a new relationship. Or maybe you wish to move or you are looking for a new job. Write out your wishes on Sunday the 9th with the New Moon, because New Moons are always about new beginnings and are the best time of the lunar month for opportunities and to start something new, and this one is especially strong with so many Retrograde planets moving the right way again we can actually help the energies move along much easier now.

 

New Moons help us look at what necessary improvements can be made in our lives. So depending just on where the New Moon is falling in your own “Astrology Birth Chart” is where you have the most power to create what you want for the next 30 days. If you don’t know where this particular New Moon is going through your Chart, then get with me about scheduling a private Reading and I will pass along all the information you need about the New Moon and what part of your life it will have the strongest effect on.

 

Good Or Maybe Great News

And lastly I must leave you with some Good News:

 

On September 12th lucky Jupiter makes a beautiful connection to powerful Pluto, this is one of the major planetary aspects actually occurring this Fall Season.

 

When Jupiter sextiles Pluto or connects to it, it can bring success for you right along with it, if you are of course willing to make some sort of positive changes. This isn’t the kind of energy you have to push to make changes happen, unlike the unexpected aspect or T-Square energy I discussed in the first part of this article. This is a more natural change that unfolds in our lives this fall. This helps us gain control or power over something more spiritual so it can help with things like wealth, personal growth, or even our career growth. The Cosmic forces are now working behind the scenes in our favor since Pluto is involved, we just might have our luck expanded in some way with Jupiter helping things along, so some of you are going to see real advancements. There could be a new job or a promotion at work, or you could see your income increase or draw some sort of money to you! So get out there folks and take advantage of the opportunities the Cosmos is trying to bring in, let these doors open and walk through them, please. Now is the time!

 

If you want to learn about how any of these Astrological events are going to affect your life over the next 3 months, get with me about purchasing a Reading Session. I can help you navigate these Cosmic paths and hopefully help you discover what parts of your life you should be focusing on to create powerful shifts in your life.

Full Moon Ahead! 

 

6d21f9f43a100ea3ebd2c80eb90e5628

 

There’s a beautiful Full Moon building up energy that will come together on Sunday, August 26, in the sign of the fish, Pisces. There are also at least five other more harmonious planet connections around the same time, and they are aligning with a couple of fortunate Stars! Under these Cosmic influences, it should be a good time to learn how to develop your own intuition and psychic abilities. Find some tools to assist you, like gemstones that activate the third eye or special oils to wear for example. All of these tools can assist you during the Full Moon and help you work with the energies. And often just lighting a candle, holding your favorite gemstone, while writing down what you wish to release or let go of can work the best.

Ask the Universe to help you develop and expand your own special unique gifts and talents. Did you know we all have our very own set of gifts, some folks are aware of them and might call themselves an Empath, Psychic, or Clairvoyant? But all of those labels are just how you connect to the Universe and its energies, really. If you are one who isn’t aware of your special psychic gifts you might be blocked up in some way due to learning how to survive life and simply not remembering that they are part of your very own spirit.

Some Good News! 
A lovely “Grand Trine” in Earth signs will be coming together on August 25, this lovely aspect is when the Sun in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus all work together. This energy can help us stay very grounded, practical, and stable. But this energy can also make you feel almost too grounded and sort of heavy, this will pass quite quickly. On August 26, the Full Moon will mesh well with this Grand Trine energy. Finally, there’s a shift and things start to make sense again, and any doors or windows that were closed will start be opening!

This particular Full Moon is great for working with our finances and for making money, or just seeing some dreams come true. Some folks will get the answers they have been looking for and there’s going to be some exciting opportunities for both personal and professional successes that can help you set up some kind of financial security for your future. A whole lot of folks are already actively looking and applying for new jobs this month and this will help a lot of you find new work which brings in a stronger sense of security.

Pay attention and look for the opportunities that present themselves over the last week of August, as this Full Moon in Pisces can help you improve something about yourself, or in your important relationships, and in life in general. The success will probably come through these new opportunities that will eventually turn into wealth and security!

This energy is amazingly strong for attracting all kind of prosperity. So make sure to Set Intentions, make out wish lists, or do some kind of ritual around this Full Moon, and call it in!! I highly suggest starting soon so you can do some sort of daily ritual to call in this energy to you, just do something proactive to draw money to you! One example is to write yourself a Check and place it under a crystal of some kind, everyone is different so I am not going to suggest one certain kind of crystal or gemstone, you go by how you feel. Leave it up until some kind of financial blessing shows up.

I do suggest, however, that you start working with this energy during the time when the Moon is increasing in light, rather than decreasing in light. So you will want to start from the New to the Full Moon, which if you are reading this on August 21st, is from now until the Full Moon. This way, when you plant your seeds of intention, they can begin to sprout and as the light increases slowly until it becomes a Full Moon, and so will the energy of your wishes!

A Look Ahead!
The day after the Full Moon, we will see fiery Mars goes direct.
It’s been Retrograde for months now, everyone is going to feel this shift in energy, and it can be either very positive or a very strong hit so to speak, so pay attention because big things are happening folks! As Mars slows down it’s going to stir people up, and some of the people are going to feel their emotions in an unhinged sort of way, and that can bring something to an end! Expect for folks to let out their pent-up anger and frustrations. Some of you may really want to start a fight of some kind, so watch for confrontations from out of the blue, they could get super serious fast. Our emotions have been suppressed or stuffed away for a while now and let all that out could easily be blamed on the upcoming Full Moon on Sunday and it’s build up this week.

But a lot of the cause for the anger is actually Mars coming out of Retrograde, and really us being able to finally express ourselves, it’s like deflating a balloon. It’s the calm before the storm, as this explosive energy can come out with a bang and then a strong sense of calm will wash over you afterward. If you are an Aries or have strong Aries or Scorpio placements in your Astrology Birth Chart, you need to be especially careful of what you say! You could easily explode!!

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

The Solar Eclipse is Getting Closer occurring on August 11th

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

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

How will the Eclipse energy affect your life?

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

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

Solar Eclipse time table – August 11th

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Time To Take A Look Within”- August 2018 Forecast

38018460_10155315929371268_7337218186535763968_n (1)

August 2018 Forecast
by Ruby

August of 2018 is starting out on an interesting note being smack in the middle of Eclipse Season. The two July Eclipses are behind us now, but there is a third Eclipse – New Moon on August 11 that can change our plans a bit. The atmosphere is still highly charged up by the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27. I will have much more on this later.

But on August 2 we’re dealing with Mars Squaring Uranus! This Square is super powerful and it’s the second one in a series of three, therefore this energy will continue to play out through the end of September. Mars is Retrograde, which causes more frustrations than usual. And with Mars being so close to the planet Earth right now, it’s actually closer then its been in years, so its influence is increased on our lives. This has already brought a lot of fiery energy into our lives, and some folks may feel like they are at a fever pitch! But before you lose your cool, there is a beautiful Trine forming between Jupiter and Neptune that can help us let go of any anger or resentments we have.

Our minds are quite focused on expressing ourselves more directly and effectively, with Mercury in Retrograde in the sign of Leo, as we look for attention from others. Under this influence, worrying is definitely boring, because our focus in on enjoying life, need I remind you Mercury is Retrograde, and this means we may be worrying as well, especially about our children and relationships. While Mars Squares Uranus the first past of August, you should be extra careful about acting impulsive. Soon after, there’s a Trine connection between Saturn and surprising Uranus, which makes this an ideal time to make some positive changes in our lives. Check yourself and stay focused, as you slowly work towards your long-term goals. This influence can help keep your mind distracted long enough so you may be calm and even patient, then you can plan out things accordingly.

With so many planets moving backward during the month of August, it certainly can be exhausting and intense feeling at times. There’s Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto all Retrograde now, along with Chiron, and soon Uranus will be in Retrograde on August 7. This High Retrograde Season means we are more vulnerable and in a subjective place, as ideas are just being developed. But it can be difficult to be patient with the Sun in Leo pushing us to get into the spotlight!

There’s a partial Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th that will be visible in Northern Europe and North Eastern Asia. This is the third and final Eclipse of this Eclipse season! The Solar Eclipse will mainly be influenced by a connection being made to Mercury while in Retrograde, the main themes will be around thinking, worrying, self-expression, contemplation, discussions, and debates. Watch what you are expressing and verbalizing during that time.

This New Moon Eclipse in the Sign of Leo on August 11th is conjunct or connecting to the asteroid “Pallas-Athena”, and the planet of ideas and communication, Mercury, which is making a tense Square to Jupiter in Scorpio, she is the speaker of our highest and deepest truth! Pallas-Athena is a warrior goddess and can help us find more peaceful ways to resolve disputes due to her feminine wisdom and ability to see overreaching patterns. Currently, her vision is effectively stronger than Jupiter’s, which is in the sign of Scorpio, so this influence has kept our perspective more closed off than usual.

Back on July 25th Mercury went into Retrograde, and on August 18 Mercury will be out of its Retrograde cycle officially, but we still may have to deal with the AFTER Shadow period for about two weeks, so through the first week of September. This is going to open up many doors of opportunity because now we can sign those contracts and start new jobs, and maybe fall in love with whomever we want, at least until Venus goes Retrograde in October, yea I know lol, but life will get moving once again at the end of August.

There is also a beautiful water Trine between Jupiter and Neptune on August 19th, this will be the third and final meeting in this series. The aspect has helped us find more positive perspectives during a very difficult time with all the planets in Retrograde, it’s promoted spiritual growth and will continue to do so through the end of September, as it allows us to release the past.

The Sun enters the earthy sign of Virgo on the 23rd. This helps us to get more grounded and stable as we prepare for the Full Moon. The Sun in Virgo brings in a more sensible way of thinking, as we are more hands-on, you can greatly benefit over the next month once this starts by living simply and being more practical. The Sun in Virgo will also be harmonizing with Uranus and Saturn which are both in Earth Signs forming an amazing Grand Trine in Earth Signs. Regarding our health, pay special attention to your intestinal and digestive issues because Virgo the Virgin rules these areas of the body.

On August 26th, there will be a Full Moon in the sign of Pisces. The brings fantasy and reality together, the spiritual and the material blend, even though these things are completely opposite of each other, boundaries come down and lines get blurred which means separating one from the other will be difficult.  Becuase this lovely combination of Pisces energy is creative and magical, this energy will bring in a strong harmonious influence. This Full Moon is a time to take the negative patterns and behaviors and balance ourselves out. The Pisces emphasis on this Full Moon will bring out the need to contemplate and relax.

This Full Moon is an opportunity to find what is totally magical about our lives. We should be tapping into our spiritual self through things like meditation, yoga, spiritual exercises, or anything that helps us balance our mind, body, and spirit together, which will allow our plans and lives to flow much more easily.

Have a great August,
~Ruby

Mercury Retrograde News
Time of Confusion
by Ruby

Well, it’s that time again folks, things are starting to really slow down as “Mercury goes Retrograde”, this makes for an interesting Cosmic mix this summer, as this energy brings twists and turns that can cause confusion. Just mentioning this Astrological event causes some high anxiety!

~Mercury is officially Retrograde from July 25 – Aug 18.

If you don’t know what Mercury in Retrograde is let me help ya out. It’s when the planet Mercury appears to be going backward from our perspective here on Earth. Such a large celestial body coming to a halt in its cosmic journey comes with its repercussions and affects our lives.

There are already several other planets in Retrograde right now, and the majority of these Retrogrades aren’t as annoying as Mercury can be, or at least we just don’t notice their effects in the same way, because Mercury is closer to the Sun and is considered to be an inner-planet rather than an outer-planet like Neptune. So with a Retrograde only lasting for three weeks, it tends to wreak some havoc in a very short amount of time, and this is intense for us to handle mentally.

Since Mercury rules over our cognitive skills and processing, it affects how we communicate, express ourselves, and think, but it also affects technology and transportation. Glitches and snafus seem to be strong during this Retrograde time. Often Mercury in Retrograde will cause delays in our thinking, but it also can cause things like mistakes and errors and if you work with any kind of computer or paperwork this can be a highly annoying time! During this cycle watch for things like travel delays, losing important paperwork, computer and phones breaking down, awkward social interactions, ex’s both friends and lovers come back into our lives (this doesn’t mean we are meant to be back together with them.)

This cycle again affects how we think, therefore all kinds of odd little things can happen, like mistaking a word or sentence for something completely different than what is written, or you can hear someone say something and realize later they didn’t say it at all! Our minds have moved down into a different realm now, and we must learn how to listen to our “Intuition” to understand things that we normally cognitively would just know. So our messages from the Universe don’t come in so clearly now, things are not black or white, we are in the grey folks! Therefore, the only way to really understand things is to go by how we are FEELING, let that little voice inside you, your higher power, or guides help you by learning how to connect more so to your spirit during this time, and you can coast along and understand some things like you never have before, it can actually be a process of discovery like no other. Also, during Mercury in Retro, we tend to learn things about others and situations that we never knew before, so pay attention to the information that is coming in now it can be important later.

This time around Mercury is in the proud sign of Leo, so expect issues to come up between July 25 and Aug 18. But the Universe always creates some sort of balance and even though Mercury in Retrograde causes some mayhem for us, it is never without a purpose. During this time you are seriously supposed to be taking a time out from your daily grind, and responsibilities, yes it is a great time to take a long vacation if you can, just expect delays if you travel. It is time to turn inward into deep introspection within ourselves, rather than work against these Cosmic forces. In fact, you shouldn’t be “Starting Anything New” or take any risky moves until this cycle is done. Instead, you should be reviewing, re-working, or redoing, and organizing things in your life. Look at what you have already been working on, and start preparing in advance to avoid problems during the actual Retrograde cycle.

There will be a point when this Mercury in Retro cycle will challenge you and your ego because you are also being tested by Mercury to learn how to trust the Universe in all its crazy unpredictable energies. So, therefore, it’s never a great idea to take failure personally, instead see it as a lesson and a learning experience. If you are doing the work spiritually or even just working with the energies in some way, you should put faith in that the doing that work, simply just works! All you can do is relax and flow with this influence and know you are doing what you can. Use this time wisely to go back over anything that comes up be it emotional, physical, or mental.

It’s a good time to clear your mind and meditate or just relax. Mercury rules the mind and in Retrograde right now we have to rely on our extra-sensory abilities, pay attention to how you’re feeling, and what you see and hear that others may not, your signs and messages. It’s time to let your intuition guide you because our rational minds are on a Vacation for the next 4 weeks.

July Monthly Horoscope ~ Eclipse Season

2016-03-16-19.20.45.jpg.jpg

 

July Monthly Horoscope ~ Eclipse Season

by Ruby

July Monthly Horoscope ~ Eclipse Season
by Ruby

July of 2018 is going to be a month full of surprises, where the second half of 2018’s Eclipses will start to come together, these life-changing cycles arrive July 12 and July 27. So the pace won’t be as slow as it has been (thank goodness), but we are in the middle of Retrograde High Season with five Planets in the Cosmos including Chiron the “Wounded Healer” all in their Retrograde cycles. Throughout July, these planets will be making their backward reversals, and at the end of the month, mental Mercury jumps on the bandwagon also going Retrograde on the 25th. Even though we are ready to move forward, July is once again a time to slow down, retrace your steps and handle any left behind or unfinished business. All month long, energizer Mars, structured Saturn, dreamy Neptune, and transformational Pluto are moving in reverse, which puts our energy and motivation levels down into low gear. And did I mention Chiron the wounded healer as well, yep also Retrograde, to bring up and out all those deep-seated emotional wounds, this can trigger you to relieve some sort of painful experience from your past or at least FEEL the way you did during something that was traumatic or painful, but it’s meant to come up to work through and heal.

Venus the planet that rules over love lives, relationships, and often money enters the sign of Virgo on July 9th, this is a time when we express how we love through practical manners and gestures. So instead of sharing how we are feeling emotionally with the object of our affection, we tend to show our feelings through the actions we take by doing things that make our partners and loved ones happy and feel taken care of. Expect the ones you love to show you how they care for you in the little things they do such as running errands, doing some kind of detailed work, or just making sure they’re around to support you. Under Venus in Virgo love has to make some sort of sense and have a purpose. It’s all about being practical under this influence.

Jupiter is now at a standstill because it will come out of its Retrograde cycle on July 10th, and will continue to move forward in the sign of Scorpio. Our bigger plans could get moving a bit more at this point, we should use this influence to tap into our higher-self to find a space of wealth and spiritual power for the good of all. The shadow side of this cycle is we can become more greedy and lustful looking for wealth and power, which can lead to some folks taking advantage of others. Things like abuse, misuse, ill-treatment & unfair treatment, and oppression will be some of the negative sides of this influence, especially with Jupiter being the sign of the detective of the Zodiac! We can uncover some seriously disturbing truths during this time, so if you have done something wrong you might want to find a way to fix it or the truth will be shown, especially around the time when the Full Moon occurs.

Eclipse Season begins on July 12th, when a New Moon – Partial Solar Eclipse occurs in the sensitive sign of Cancer. This can cause a crisis in your self-esteem, and in your relationships or around an event. The Solar Eclipse is opposing powerful Pluto which is about making a transformation to help better yourself. To evolve your soul so you can live a better experience that’s more satisfying in this life. This transformational energy will be common in our close relationships, so with a close family member, friend, or partner.

Leo Season begins on July 22nd, this is when the Sun moves into the sign of Leo. During this time we will see some folks show their asses plain and simple, with ego trips and battles, but hopefully, it is also going to be a time when people express themselves from the heart in a more authentic way! This influence can help us feel more optimistic and confident, so we can make important contacts and strengthen bonds with our current tribe of folks we care for.

With mental Mercury, the planet of communication turning Retrograde in the sign of Leo from July 25th till August 18th, the drama is going to be quite strong! Mercury also rules over technology and travel, so you already know if you follow my blog posts, Mercury in Retrograde is a very confusing time where we see technical glitches and malfunctions occur all over the place. People tend to get confused easily and forget what they are talking about, so be patient with yourself and others, and if you travel expect delays!

The Full Moon comes together on July 27th, and will be in the sign of intellectual Aquarius and a Total Lunar Eclipse!
A Lunar Eclipse is a perfectly aligned “Supercharged” Full Moon! 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. As the lights go out, our shadows, secrets, and repressed feelings that might have seemed too big or scary to get our attention and expression 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.

This Eclipse is highly influenced by Mars now in its Retrograde cycle. This turns this Full Moon into a highly emotionally charged Eclipse. Mars is the planet that rules over our passion, drive, and anger, so it is certainly a time to be cautious as this influence can easily cause reckless actions to be taken, because of another harsh aspect Mars is making to the planet of changes, Uranus during the Full Moon time things can get pretty wild folks! This will also be a strong turning point within the Mars Retrograde cycle and for all of us in one way or another. It is a time to be extremely vigilant and grounded. Think before reacting, think before speaking, don’t let your fuse get lit, because once it does it’s all over with.

Overall, July of 2018 will certainly not be a boring month, so we should take notes around what we want to accomplish but also move cautiously and slowly, as big changes are coming in, but if we pay attention and understand how the planets are influencing our lives, we can better navigate this time and hopefully make it a month to remember for the more positive outcomes. I am aware some of this sounds super scary but remember a few things if you come from your heart in all you do, then you will do much better. And some of these stronger influences just won’t be as harsh to deal with. Learn how to observe life and not always react, this will change the game completely for you!

Have a safe and happy July.

Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Astro Alert
Mercury in Leo
Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury enters the sign of proud and expressive Leo today! This transit will be in this sign until September 5th, which is longer than usual due to Mercury going Retrograde, from July 25 through August 18, which is usually a challenging time. But this blog is about Mercury’s time in the sign of Leo, which affects all of us!

With Mercury in the sign of Leo our thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect, and can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us or is not listening to what we are saying. One thing we should be careful of especially once the Sun Enters Leo around July 22nd is just how aggressive, pushy, and over bearing we can get. There will be a whole lot of Leo energy swirling around and this means some folks won’t know how to handle this fiery energy, so be mindful and if you feel like your going to Roar take a break and get space!

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent the goal, the better. This cycle can help you organize your thoughts to concentrate for long periods of time, which can help you meet your goals. Our minds our full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance, and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Our minds may just naturally go to the positive, so we can be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, even though on occasion we can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and to forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy, but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well.

We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more then usual. Also watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up over sharing with the wrong people.

With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about who we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.

It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar level. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.

After working hard we also will feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love we can become quite irritated and lonely.

“A Look Ahead”

The Cosmos is shifting and the energies are about to go into a totally different direction. So I thought I would explain what the energies will be like over the next week. Do understand that every planet goes through each sign of the Zodiac at different times, and those aspects affect each and every sign in the Zodiac, not just the sign they are in. These placements have an influence on all of you!

Lovely Venus has now moved into sensitive, romantic Pisces. This makes it a special time for relationships right before Valentine’s Day! However, secrets are coming out now as well, so we need to be extra careful of false sentiments and betrayals. If there’s anything being hidden or kept secret in a relationship, it just might be revealed during this time. Also, watch for con artists and scammers online, as some folks will be confessing their love for you but have an agenda. But for most couples, this can be a nice week ahead as we celebrate Love. And all you Pisces folks will probably enjoy the energies over this next month, with so many planets moved into your highly intuitive, compassionate sign.

This Tuesday, (also known as “Fat Tuesday”) mental Mercury is making a very tense connection to over the top Jupiter. This means many of you will have some very strong opinions, and some folks can get aggressive or forceful when trying to express themselves, or when trying to get their point across. Try to focus on remaining calm.

The Moon and Sun both will actually be in more emotionally detached Aquarius on Valentine’s Day, so it’s a good time to host small social gatherings and enjoy this time with friends. Let them know just how much they mean to you. There also will be “friends” who decide to come forward and profess their love, because they want to start more meaningful relationships. But the day of love is better spent in groups this time around, as our one-on-one meetings may feel a little cut-off or cold.

Get ready folks Thursday is the Solar Eclipse – New Moon. This will be a very powerful energy! It’s a Time to Set Intentions, work on reinventing yourself, and to start something new. I will have more on this special celestial event soon. 

Next Saturday, we all should be a little extra careful to not take advantage of others. Because there are some shady folks running around who are looking to get something for nothing. But luckily, the Sun and mental Mercury make a strong connection as well and this makes it a good weekend to learn something. It will be a good time to communicate how you’re feeling and to hopefully learn something.

Mental Mercury is sliding into Pisces along with loving Venus next weekend. On Sunday, the Sun also moves into the sign of the fishes. So are dreams will be more vivid and strong. The lines between our dream world and this physical reality will start to blur. The next four weeks after these changes occur will be an extremely intuitive time, as we tap into a deeper part of our spirit!

“Time to Get Serious, Seriously!”

Mercury enters Capricorn
January 11- January 31st

“Time to Get Serious, Seriously!”
By Rubys Readings
Mercury the planet that rules over our way of thinking, thought process, and communication shifts Signs today. It’s a time to be practical, to better understand what’s working and what’s not. As we continue to slow down and get more serious with Mercury in the Sign Capricorn from January 11th – 31st.

This Mercury placement is about being precise when communicating and thinking about long-term goals, so choose your words wisely and carefully. Take some time to write our your goals, especially around your career. Since our thoughts are more down to earth, maybe start practicing a grounding meditation to help keep yourself grounded.

This energy can cause a more negative or pessimistic attitude, so use this influence to think through any issues and gain some clarity by the time this energy shifts at the end of January. Focus on your problems and go into a space of acceptance, then you can shift and change them.

It’s a great period to seek out folks who have already accomplished what you hope to one day achieve. These mentors or teachers can give you some valuable advice and help connect you with others who can help you in the long run to achieve your goals. Your hard work will pay off later so get on board with this energy, as there are nearly 5 other planets also in Capricorn now.

This is definitely not the most exciting time, but Mercury in Capricorn has many benefits as well. The timing of this placement couldn’t be better with it just being the New Year, this helps us stay grounded and reach our goals, this energy aids us in making and keeping our resolutions. This is a great time to build up your ideas and take notes, as it’s easier to organize our many different thoughts. We can turn these ideas into action and make them a reality!

Right up until the 31st of January, Mercury will be in Capricorn which means our way of thinking is much more methodical and our focus more practical and sober. Under this influence, it’s much easier to concentrate on the tasks at hand. Our conversations can be quite the reality check, as we focus more on business and practical matters. Our thought process and patterns of communication become way more logical, orderly, and organized now. It’s just easier to sort out what is relevant and essential, as we get REAL, our speech is no-nonsense and being precise becomes more important to us.

Many of you are going to feel more ambitious, practical, patient, and shrewd, so it’s easier to get organized, as our reasoning is much more sound. We are quite straightforward as we have a no-nonsense view on life.

Under this energy, we are aware of who is in charge, and our conversations can become more controlling then constructive. We all think “our ideas” are the best during the time Mercury is in Capricorn, but if we spend too much time worrying about who’s in charge, we can get distracted and not get as much done.

Be careful of being too narrow-minded as our sense of humor is lacking during this time. Our attitude can appear colder, cut off, and harsh to others. Don’t forget there’s a fine line between being real and pessimistic. Use this time to study, learn, and further your education.

“Venus in Sagittarius”

81dcb4fb844488a0b18f5eb416ea5878

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

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

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

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

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

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

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