The days following a New Moon phase are auspicious. The actual day of the New Moon the Balsamic or dark Moon period marks the beginning point when the heavens shift from dark to light. On the days following the New Moon magic is in the air and the inner life is awakened.
During the New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting some seeds of intention and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to think about what you’re grateful and what you have and to work on manifesting what you’d like next to show up in your life next.
Setting Intentions under the New Moon
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for New Beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your desires. Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source, Guides, Angels, etc.) and ask for the New Moon to open up a path towards your deepest desires, and ask to be led to your manifestations. Plant seeds of intentions with your mind and heart. In the simplest of terms, write your wishes down and most importantly feel them.
You might be asking how does one Set Intentions under the New Moon? First, you should set the mood and create the energy. So light some candles, burn some incense or sage, and play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes or questions about your future and what you want next. Write down what you would like to manifest or create, and what kind of energy you are trying to bring into your life?
As you’re doing a ritual and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about.
What are you choosing or what changes would you like to see in your life?
What energy should you be calling in?
How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now, what kind of energy do you want to create in your life during this New Moon?
Now Visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take some nice long deep breaths, and enter into your heart (the space you feel the love from) Visualize yourself in the desire or dream you’re creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that great Soulmate partner, or driving that new car. Keep it simple and see a particular goal being meet, see yourself feeling joyful and happy! See yourself manifesting what you would like to call in during the New Moon. Just don’t think about it, make sure and “FEEL IT” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.
The New Moon phase is the best time for planning and seeding your intentions. You’re going to need to be patient and wait for those seeds you have planted to grow, just like you would wait on a flower to sprout from a seedling and remember when a plant grows it needs sunlight. This is also true for us as we get our ideas together and make our visions known, it takes some time for our wishes or desires to surface into reality. The dark of the Moon or New Moon, is like the earth when you plant a flower it is dark, but once you ask for your dreams to come in…you are putting your Light on it and that is what it takes for it to grow, just like the Sun makes a flower grow, add some emotions to it and really feel what you are asking for and there is the water a flower would need to grow, see it’s all so symbolic for what we really are doing here.
Last but not least, you should work on being grateful what you already have on this planet, right in the here and now! Tell the Universe thank you and believe me once you start saying or writing down what you are grateful for, it won’t stop it will just keep coming to you. Gratitude is so popular because it works…it’s the key to manifestation.

This Fall is one of the most important times of the year in regard to our Karmic connections, and October is going to be a most interesting month indeed. ~Ruby
Another planet is finally moving forward soon and is nearly the last outer-planet to finally come out of its Retrograde cycle from nearly six months of Retrogrades, it’s been, rough folks.
Starting October 1st Pluto moves out of its Retrograde cycle, where it’s been since the spring. This is a huge shift, as this Retrograde cycle has been life-changing for some folks. If you have any Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn that are strong in your own personal “Astrology Birth Chart,” you’ve probably been dealing with some seriously major big challenges, changes, and transformations in your life. There might have been some endings that have left you feeling sad or gloomy under this transit. Some folks will actually start to see prosperity and a maybe a run of good luck that could change your whole entire life, especially if you are a Taurus or Virgo, or if your Natal Pluto Sign is in those signs at the time of your birth. But again no matter what your Sign maybe, look forward to moving at your own pace once again and for you to feel like you have some degree of control over your life and most importantly yourself.
October 2nd and 3rd – Is a time to get away from those folks who seem agitated or frustrated, the planet of communication Mercury is making a tense Square to the control freak of the Cosmos, Pluto, and it is not a good time for business dealings, and it can just be a testy time when it comes to negotiations or contracts, so avoid them if you can on these days.
Venus In Retrograde – Relationships & Money
Venus goes Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio. October 5th through November 15th
If you have the Sun, Moon or Rising Sign in either Libra or Taurus, you may need to take extra special precautions during this cycle. Tread carefully! Regardless this can be an important time in your life no matter what your Zodiac signs maybe, this aspect seems to push you to reconsider your relationships and it brings up the ongoing question if you are happy or not! The good thing about a Venus in Retrograde cycle is how it’s a time to review over our love life, affections (crushes), relationships, and finances. This can be a time when you decide to take charge of your relationships or finances and give them the attention they so desperately need, and question current projects and commitments. This gives you some time to play catch up with your own heart and explore the possibilities. Work on negotiations and partnerships both intimate and financial or business. It’s also a good time to work on solving conflicts, especially in our relationships.
Getting married while Venus is Retrograde is not recommended! I mean at all, no matter if you planned it out or not. So if someone asks you to marry them or vice versa, it’s best to wait until after this Retrograde cycle is over to actually have the wedding. It is not a time for heavy financial or even personal commitments either. It’s just difficult for anyone in a new relationship to gain any kind of commitment or have longevity while Venus is moving backward. But when Venus is in the sign of Scorpio, it’s even worse! Marriages and business relationships formed now probably won’t last. If you are going to make a commitment in love or around money, might I suggest you either get it done by October 5 or wait until the Retrograde phase is over in mid-November? This also goes for any ceremonies that are a re-commitment of some kind as well.
New Moon – October 9th
Look forward to the next New Moon, aka “Dark Moon” phase on October 9th, (when a New Moon is called a Dark Moon it is actually a good thing, just think of coming out of the Dark into the Light and what you are able to see or learn.) This New Moon will be in the sign of Libra, therefore our relationships are going to be of the utmost importance, as this influence offers us an opportunity for new starts in both ongoing relationships and former ones, which is going to be interesting considering relationship-ruled Venus is also in Retrograde. You might just return to an old flame during this time. Also, some folks will return to old jobs, or make some sort of amends with friends or family members they might have been estranged from. This is a time of forgiveness, which we need after such a rough summer of Retrograde Planets. This New Moon can be good for all types of new beginnings.
October, in general, is a good month for getting into Past Life Regression, especially if it’s around relationships of any kind. This time can help you connect to the emotional wounds of your Past Lives and the connections you had with certain people; like soul-mates, family members, and estranged friends. Working out the Karma you have with these people might be easier than usual. The best thing you can do is meditate on these people and allow yourself to let go of any emotional wounds you remember and don’t forget to forgive yourself while you are it.
However, there is a bit of an issue with the New Moon due to the “Cosmic Lovers” of the Zodiac having a lovers spat during this time when more masculine Mars makes a tense Square to feminine Venus, and Venus rules over this New Moon in the sign of Libra! This means any deeper issues with feeling dissatisfied in your relationship might be activated. Trying to take certain steps to move in a different direction can lead to aggressive behavior, and with Uranus in a Square as well making attempts to get our lives on track might be rudely interrupted by unforeseen forces of nature that we have no control over. Follow the ways of this New Moon in Libra and promote peace, harmony, and compromise when you can and you will do much better.
Venus in Retrograde in Scorpio is making some nicer connections to Neptune and Pluto, and this means if we stay practical than we can fix the mistakes we have made from the last few years, so this can make things much more pleasant. Shifted blame on others for the way things have not worked out in our own lives will just create chaos! It’s important more now than ever to forgive yourself and others, which allows us to start over again in most relationships.
Sun Enters Scorpio
The Sun enters the sign of mysterious Scorpio on October 23rd.
Scorpio’s key phrase is “I desire”, so with the Sun in Scorpio, we all can take on the traits of this deeply soulful, sexy, and mysterious sign. This is a time of depth, intimacy, and extreme feelings. Anything superficial, fake, or false won’t do under this sign. There’s a strong urge to merge with someone under this powerfully connected sign. In love, we can become obsessive and go overboard.
Stay busy working on solving the little mysteries in life while searching for ways to get to the bottom of problems. Especially, other people’s issues, because it helps us feel satisfied and can bring feelings of contentment. Fake or false anything won’t do, as we’re searching for what’s real and authentic. All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed interests us during this time.
Over the last month with the Sun in Libra, we worked toward keeping things peaceful and fair. However, under Scorpio, the vibe is more how life isn’t fair so deal with it! It’s that simple. Scorpio’s influence is more provocative, and usually kind of quiet or guarded. But we can feel strongly passionate, intense, and strong-willed. This can be a strong time for healing and transformation. But watch out folks for jealousy, vindictiveness, and manipulative behavior, which are just some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio’s influence.
At the same time, the Sun shifts into more powerful Scorpio, the Moon in Aries will make a nice connection to Mars and a tense Square to Pluto. This means a “Solar Month” of people feeling energized, but also we can feel highly agitated and frustrated. We are lead by our emotions during this time, but it’s important to think before speaking or you can say things that can hurt others, and end up having to do some serious damage control! This can be a volatile energy, so it’s important not to be so serious, and lighten up during this time! You just may have to remind yourself from time to time that you are taking things way to seriously and try to relax.
Full Moon in Taurus
The Full Moon comes together October 24th when the Sun in Scorpio makes a connection to the Moon in Taurus around 11:45 EDT, 10:45 CST, 12:45 PST, and 9:45 MDT. This is a time when we are reawakened to our interest in the physical world and our own sensual needs and desires. It’s ok to be focused on yourself a little during this time, but you should watch for being overly stubborn.
This will be a strong potent Full Moon my friends, as its energies will have built up for a while, and that pressure will be felt as the energy starts coming out. Many different Cosmic connections involve the Moon during this time, and this includes shocking Uranus, the willful Sun, and relationship-oriented Venus in Retrograde. There are certain situations that can make you feel torn between two different paths, one is going after what you want, and the other is a pull to escape and ignore reality in some ways. Karmic Saturn makes a nice connection to the Sun and Moon during this Full Moon, therefore the best way to gain your independence is through being honest and hard work, take care of your responsibilities and you’ll be rewarded. Since it’s easier to concentrate on reality our focus will be on doing what’s expected of us.
Full Moon’s are always about letting go, and this gives us a chance to complete unfinished or forgot about tasks and projects, and to get rid of things we no longer want or need. And with seven planets in fixed signs during this lunation, we should be working on releasing what’s been emotionally difficult to handle, which is necessary to move forward.
During the last week of October, a nice connection between influential Jupiter and wounded healer/teacher Chiron forms, and will peak on November 1st. This influence can lift our spirits a bit, as it brings us the opportunity to let go of negative attitudes that might have been undermining our progress. Being free from its restrictions can help us feel set free. We are especially open to learning from others, this helps us understand each other and respect each other’s opinions and points of view. This also exposes us to different ways of thinking and philosophies. We’re better able to share what we have learned from our past mistakes and experiences. Mentally curious Mercury hooks into this influence and aligns with Jupiter on the 29th, as well. This helps us to focus on our goals and not get caught up in details, so it can be a rewarding time. It also opens our minds to help us visualize in more expanded ways, and see the whole picture of any given situation. We can get our point across with a strong spirit and enthusiasm because we enjoy learning during this time.

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!

September of 2018 is the time to check on all your work and get organized since we’ve been under so much heavy Retrograde (backward) energy. I know this is a long article, but I had to share all the excitement, and what a month this is going to be folks, as we start off slow moving, but there are such strong shifts that start to move us forward again, you may be in a completely different place in one or more areas of your life by the end of the year under all these changes! The “Heavy Retrograde Season” energy is coming unraveled now and many of the planets that have held us back and stifled our forward movement while in Retrograde are going to be moving forward once again by the end of the month. So get ready big changes are coming! Get excited and start planning your next big move.
We start out the month with a long-term Jupiter/Saturn aspect on September 3rd, this connection comes just in time to help us focus on getting to work without taking any shortcuts, so more then likely taking an easier path won’t help you to sidestep any of your responsibilities for the first week of the month. This is the time to rebuild and restructure our lives, work, and business goals. Breathe new life into old projects and maybe wait until the New Moon on the 9th to start anything totally brand-new. Do the legwork and take steps to help you get where you want, but if you push or overdo things now you might just hit a brick wall and get quite frustrated! Many of you will feel quite overwhelmed this month as you try to get things back on track again, but that’s due to jumping so fast, one step at a time folks!
Mercury and Mars just went forward again and out of their Retrograde cycles in August, and on September 6th Saturn also goes forward and out of Retrograde! This is a big deal and will be felt in a deep way. There have been six planets in their Retrograde cycles all summer long, so many of you have felt stuck in one or more areas of your life. But all the frustration and delays are about to come to an end folks when Karmic Saturn finally comes out of Retrograde! This energy is already slowing us back down again as it gets ready for this shift, so you may feel tired or worn out, and are questioning your health right now, but really it’s just this energy zapping you. Saturn’s energy, when slowed down, can feel heavy and like you have a weight on your shoulders. It’s important now to set boundaries and work on saying “No” to the things you don’t want, or to what’s not working for you anymore, including any promises or commitments you’ve outgrown.
Saturn freshly out of Retrograde on the 6th will also make a beautiful “Grand Trine” with Mercury and Uranus. This is the Cosmic boost we are needing, as it helps raise our motivation levels to go after our goals. And it brings in some amazing opportunities we can chase down! Saturn is known as the planet of Karmic Debt so it can help us take out the trash and clean up some of the messes that the “High Retrograde”Season caused that started last April. A whole lot of folks will finally start to see progress and positive changes through the end of the year despite any Retrograde slow-downs.
There’s a magical New Moon coming together September 9th, in the sign of service, Virgo. If you are intuitive, Psychic, or sensitive, you may feel this energy strong! This time around the Sun and Moon are well aspected by powerful Pluto and lucky Jupiter. So pay attention, all healers, light workers, or spiritual warriors as special gifts are coming soon! There’s some seriously lucky energy brewing now and you might be feeling like something is coming, but you just can’t put your finger on it, and you may just end up in the right place at the right time, and something special might be happening very soon over the days leading up to this glorious New Moon. Some folks will just feel especially good from this influence and things will fall into place, finally! It’s about time.
Also, let me not fail to mention this New Moon is also going to be in a tense opposition to foggy Neptune, this influence may just put us in the right place to be of help or service to someone else! The Universe is calling out all healers and lightworkers of the world to do some serious work from the heart, so we must continue to lift others up during this time. Pay extra close attention to any opportunities that present themselves to be helpful or of service to someone who needs you! It’s important and not only helps those in need but also helps us balance our own Karmic Debt out, but more importantly healing others always in return helps heal you!
We have already been working on eliminating what is blocking us, and removing obstacles in our way. But when mentally curious Mercury makes a connection to Venus in Scorpio on September 9th, the energies shift once again, especially around our love life! The process of getting rid of stuff will continue for the next month. I don’t know about you but I have been hit by this a few weeks ago and have been organizing everything! And with Mercury now out of Retrograde, it is just that much easier to get things in order.
Venus will enter Scorpio also on the 9thand this will be a time of intensity, passion, and commitment in our relationships, and around our financial affairs. This is conveniently perfect timing with Fall right around the corner, as the mistress herself moves into sultry Venus, and any skeletons in your romantic closets can come out so we can be more secretive about both money and love. This influence can bring intimate encounters with someone sexy, magnetic, and maybe even irresistible. This can tie the bonds between lovers and friends on a soul level, and also is a time of healing and transformation in our relationships!
Starting September 12th will be a good time to make important decisions, negotiations, and commitments when Jupiter makes a nice connection to powerful Pluto. Under these energies, we can actually have successful business meetings, especially if they are involving investments or real estate. While in this powerful energy we are able to nurture our ambitions. It’s a favorable time for the law, business, and commerce. Plus we might enjoy increased influence and insight now, as this energy helps restore our faith and hope, and opens us up to the possibilities! You might notice a deeper, stronger desire to make your mark out in the world, so you’ll give more time and energy to help yourself and others. This motivates us to go after some personal or professional goals! You might feel the nudge from this alignment to do something to better yourself, it’s time for some self-help really! Problems get solved more easily at this time, especially ones that have been around for a while. Sudden resources or opportunities show up that we missed out on before.
The Sun Enters The Zodiac Sign of Libra on September 22nd, and this sets the tone for the next three months. This is our Autumnal Equinox. On that day we will experience equal hours of daylight and darkness. While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next 28 days or so. Our relationships will also become of great interest and focus from September 22nd through October 23rd, but we can struggle with how to handle our relationships with Venus in Scorpio now. It’s going to take real balance to feel comfortable with our love lives.
The Full Moon comes together on September 24th in the sign of Aries! This is going to be a strong, potent Full Moon that serves as a reminder to consider if you’re taking care of yourself and the people in your close relationships or partnerships, equally. But this also can bring up issues about our leadership skills, and our abilities to initiate the changes that we need. While under this lunation, it makes a tense square to stern Saturn, so things may feel heavy or even draining once again during this Full Moon, but this is short lived. This can produce the energy of blocks and restrictions, so it can feel harsh as we are being served with reality checks. But we will show the Universe and prove to ourselves just how tough, resilient, and persistent we can be.
On the 25th, Chiron the “Wounded Healer” moves back into the sign of sensitive Pisces while in Retrograde, it was in this sign for years prior, but then it will go back into Aries later until finally going out of Retrograde on December 8th. This Retrograde cycle is all about taking the time to assess your mental and physical well-being. If you are not choosing to deal with any health or mental problems you might be experiencing during this time, they can become a bigger issue. Don’t ignore your body, listen to it! Chiron is trying to show you what’s wrong so you can heal something. Chiron is always about learning how to live with and through pain, so it wants you to deal with your emotional trauma and let go of your suffering.
Pluto will also turn direct from its Retrograde cycle on the 30th, this will be an intense shift folks! Weeks prior expect to feel perhaps more sensitive about the roles you play and what you have power and control over, and what you don’t! This shift can make us hyper-focused around our ambitions, as there is a strong pull or need to feel empowered by something in our daily lives. Over the coming weeks and months, the power to make deep changes in our lives becomes more evident and direct. We are more likely to start making big and necessary changes as we don’t feel as held back as we have while Pluto was in Retrograde over the last several months. So this is yet another powerful influence in September that motivates us to get moving and make changes!
September of 2018 is shaping up to be a pretty interesting month, with all these planets shifting and moving forward once again, you to should be able to move towards your dreams, plans, and goals that were kept on hold since last spring. Success is in the air, and this energy opens things back up! As we walk and then run through these cosmic doors, a bunch of you will feel more ambitious, so you’ll be able to achieve some of your goals over the next few months, especially around your work or career. But watch for pitfalls, there’s an awful lot of shifts and we may not be as ready as we feel just yet to make major changes! This is a month to stick to doing what is expected of you and see what good stuff you can draw in. So allow some things to just play out and see what happens at first, then follow the good feeling stuff.

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.
July has been an intense month on the Astrological front lines, with Mercury going Retrograde on July 25, and a Full Blood Moon with a Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27, it’s about to get intense folks! A Blood Moon is extremely potent and its effects are stronger than a normal Full Moon because a Total Lunar Eclipse always follows and stirs up lots of activity and emotions.
A Full Blood Moon has nothing to do with actual Blood! Even though life might be crazy during this time. It actually gets its name from the reddish hue it shines when the Earth and the Sun align and block the light of the Full Moon. Since ancient times Blood Moon’s have been labeled as a time of misfortune and chaos by very superstitious people. But more than likely it’s the hype that fed those rumors and created such fear that something bad was going to happen, so during these cycles, folks tend to get riled up and make poor choices. It is certainly a stressful energy we have to deal with, but it is what you make of it! In all actuality, we should be paying attention to the other planets and their connections to the Blood Moon/Lunar Eclipse to see how it will affect us!
This Eclipse will be affected more so by the planet Mars, which means this cycle will make us feel extremely emotional charged! Mars influence can cause frustrations or even anger which could easily turn into reckless actions, because of a harsh connection Mars is making to game-changer Uranus also at the time of the Eclipse. So yes, this can mean problems, but there are ways to get around these energies and deal with them. Forewarned is forearmed as they say! Now there’s a more gentle influence from Saturn coming in also during this time, and this can help keep things more grounded and calmer. And there’s also some fixed stars influence as well that can help us to be more patient and decisive in a crisis, but they also can cause more aggression and emotional upheaval.
It is said that the Total Lunar Eclipse this July is the longest running Lunar Eclipse this century, which only make its influence more intensified.
This Lunar Eclipse turns our attention towards our feelings, home & family, and intimate relationships. So as potent as this illumination is, it’s going to have an incredibly powerful influence mostly on our private lives. We will only be one day into Mercury’s Retrograde cycle the day the Blood Moon comes together and this can make people feel very nervous. There’s a lot of folks who still fear the Eclipses so some of you will be hanging out close to home out of fear, but we really shouldn’t allow this energy to scare us!
This energy certainly has its challenges, and with that painful transformations are already happening to lots of people. The Eclipse is a hard reset like on a smartphone, and a rather large download of information we receive from the Universe like an Update, but for our souls! So if over the last six months or so, things in your life have been building up to crescendo you just can’t seem to handle this Blood Moon/Lunar Eclipse can be a new beginning or a fresh start actually, please hang on tight you are about to breakthrough! This might cause us to be upset in some way, but this Karmic Experience can actually help us get rid of unwanted emotional baggage. It’s a cleansing for our soul!
We are already in Eclipse Season as it’s called, so if you have been feeling dragged down and out of it, that is completely normal. This just means the Eclipse energy is already begun, and in the weeks to come we must be prepared to expect the unexpected! Eclipses are turning points in our lives, and situations shift quickly without little warning, changes are everywhere right now, and sometimes we lose our footing during this time. This energy can be very disorienting when you aren’t aware of what is happening, and with so many planets in Retrograde it is a massive time of confusion. Since we won’t be able to visibly see this Lunar Eclipse here in the States we might not be paying attention to when it’s happening and try to ignore its side effects, but this can catch you off guard by its unstable energies, because regardless if you can see it or not, it is happening and its energies will affect you.
Our emotions and passions will be in high gear during this particular Lunar Eclipse, and our anger can be more explosive, so waves of sadness and frustrations might feel more overwhelming, and our passions will be more powerful than normal, but also moments of pleasure and happiness can feel like nirvana! Admittedly, this is a rough time for us, however, there is a ray of hope as we go through this transformation and the side effects we are experiencing are just necessary growing pains as we go through this metamorphosis! I believe strongly we will come out different on the other end of this Eclipse Season, with information planted in our unconscious minds to be brought out and discovered, it is an interesting but exciting time folks!
If you feel like you are in a dark place and are just blind to what is going to happen next, we are in the time of Mercury and so many other planets in Retrograde, but just know the light will find you once again and you will eventually see a glimmer if you will while you are in this dark emotional place, so DON’T GIVE UP HOPE! Allow the peacefulness that comes from being in the dark and not so distracted to wash over you and do something spiritual, like write in a journal or take a nice Moon bath. Do something that makes you feel better when you are stressed out during this time, take extra care and nurture yourself. The Eclipse energy is hard on us, and we need to get lots of rest, eat right, and exercise during this time to be at our best to handle these powerful downloads that are about to come in.
A Look Ahead
Two weeks after this Lunar Eclipse occurs there will be a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11.
Once again another very rare and important time, that I will explain more as we get closer to that time, but for now you should know this will be a good time for new and lucky breaks and new beginnings! If you don’t know how to Set Intentions or manifest your future please keep up with my blogs to learn all about it.
The Eclipse in Leo can be a lucky time for winnings and games of chance. Leo is already considered a lucky Sign, but you don’t have to be a Leo to reap the rewards from this Eclipse. If you are going to “Set Intentions” or make out Wish Lists for the New Moon on August 11, then focus your attention on money, prosperity, career, love, protection, peace and happiness, and healing!
Finally, remember that Eclipses bring about much-needed changes that you don’t always understand at the time. Of course, depending on what part of your own Astrology Birth Chart these Eclipses are moving through will show you just where your biggest challenges may be, but also what part of your life will see changes and ultimately rewards as well. If you book a session with me I will be glad to look up just what part of your life these energies will be affecting the most and share that information with you. ~Ruby
In just a few short days the planet Uranus is making a massive shift into the sign of Taurus, this planet only changes Signs once every 7 years, and this energy will and already is affecting all of us! Read below to learn more.
Uranus is in Taurus …
from May 15, 2018, to November 6, 2018,
and then from March 6, 2019, to July 7, 2025,
and then from November 7, 2025, to April 25, 2026
Uranus the planet of quick and sudden changes, chaos, and liberation is changing signs for the first time since 1942, into the sign of Taurus on May 15th. For the next seven years, Uranus will reside in the sign of Taurus. The fixed signs of the Zodiac will be the most strongly affected so Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, both Sun & Rising Signs will experience some serious surprises. But this aspect will affect all the Signs of the Zodiac. This will not come back again in our lifetime! So it’s very important to understand what’s happening.
Uranus takes around 84 years to go through all 12 Signs of the Zodiac, and this is a slow-moving planet and its effects are long-lasting! The changes or disruption this erratic aspect brings in will usually affect the area of your life that needs some kind of change. It really depends on you, if your personal experience with Uranus will be challenging or not, you must embrace and not resist whatever changes it brings to your life. This planet’s influence makes us feel more restless about feeling stuck or restricted, but it also helps take us out of the worst situations that we might be stuck in right now.
Over the last seven years, Uranus was in fiery Aries, and most Sun & Rising Sign Aries folks can tell you its been a wild ride! With Uranus involved the motto is “expect the unexpected!”
With Uranus in Aries over the last 7 years all of us have dealt first hand with wake up calls, Ah-Ha moments, jolts, twists & turns, and mind-blowing changes! It’s been a crazy seven years folks! But now with Uranus in Taurus life will grow calmer and hopefully more stable. Now even if your not a Taurus (born April 21st – May 21st), you will still be affected by this aspect in one way or another! Each and every one of us has the sign of Taurus somewhere in our personal “Astrology Birth Chart!” Whatever area it’s moving through in your Astro Birth Chart is where you can expect to experience the biggest and most radical changes, and maybe something unexpected.
“This once in a lifetime aspect creates major shifts that we only get to experience one time around.”
Understanding Astrology gives us an advantage, especially during major cosmic shifts such as this one. Some of you will see significant gains during this cycle that will be amazing and wonderful. But there will be both strong highs and low’s as well so this can be intense for some of you, but exciting! As many of you have already been experiencing this shift, it can be quite intimidating.
Some of you stand to benefit greatly from Uranus’s shift into Taurus. Often the surprises coming in will be something you didn’t anticipate or realize could be possible. Make sure and take some notes about your adventures during this cycle, so you can look at it after 2026, and see all that has changed in your life once it’s over.
Personal changes caused by this aspect:
Uranus only changes signs every 7 years, and it creates major changes and shifts on both personal and global levels. Its lessons are about revelations, revolution, and doing what’s right for the group!
During this cycle, we tend to shake things up and bring about some major changes, especially around what we enjoy or the simple pleasures in our lives, especially with Uranus in the sign of pleasure-seeking Taurus. What we own, value, and arrange in our lives comes into focus more so now. Our views on financial spending and around our personal possessions may get changed up in new and exciting ways. Our focus shifts to the mundane and our financial status, it’s a time to be progressive and savvy in both business and practical matters. Get creative and innovative around how you can be more comfortable in your everyday world, there will be opportunities to change things to accommodate such goals.
There can be fears or self-doubt around how we express our sensuality, how we view our body type, and how we take care of ourselves and practice self-love and pampering. Since our values might be more unconventional now under this influence, we could end up challenging what we once valued!
The Feminist movement is going to only grow that much stronger and larger, as Uranus is the planet of revolution and freedom and Taurus is ruled by the Goddess herself, Venus! Which represent all woman and Woman’s Rights! So this cause will continue to be that much more important to both woman and men.
We seek freedom and independence during this aspect, but issues can arise if we only focus on material pursuits to distract us from reality. Finding a way to detach ourselves from our physical attachments or things will bring a much more desirable outcome. The lesson is to free ourselves from certain material things and get more organic now. The way we eat, what we eat, and how we grow our food is all going to be altered for the improvement of our planet. We are about to see an upsurge of concern for the earth and a societal push towards more ethically conscious industries. Learning how to grow our food is going to become increasingly more important and necessity during this time.
There also can be some major changes around money, valuables, possessions, and income, which can lead to rearranging our priorities and values. During this cycle money or income will be earned in more non-traditional ways. In the world of finances and business, there will be major progressive ideas like you have never seen before, as we move through this cycle through 2026!
Remember Uranus rules much of technology and the internet. There will be new ways to handle doing business and how we make, view, and handle money! (Online & Electronic Currency is going to grow bigger.) Just know that our income is a direct reflection of how we see ourselves, so our self-worth is going to need some work during this time, and it might get a bit rocky as we seek to find what is authentic about ourselves.
No matter what we have been through life is going to change in many ways, so try to stay positive and focus on the new and exciting adventure we have just begun! Best of luck!!
April was a seriously intense month on the Astrological front and this was reflected in our everyday lives. The planetary shifts we have experienced have been transformational, but there is more to come now as we begin 1, and hopefully, these energies will be more on the calmer side.
The powerful Full Moon in Scorpio is slowly breaking apart now but was one of the most intense Full Moon’s of 2018. And with so many planets going in and out of Retrograde (backward) like Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto we are feeling it! The odd part is we are feeling this energy more internally, due to the planets that are Retrograde, and many of you aren’t choosing to express how you’re feeling. Do what you can to express your emotions during this highly emotionally charged time.
The first week of May might seem almost quiet once the Full Moon energy breaks apart, but the New Moon in Taurus on May 15th can be a catalyst that brings in major changes in our personal relationship with our physical reality. The weeks ahead will likely be some of the most important moments of 2018.
The New Moon comes together on May 15th, 2018! Just hours after the Sun and Moon connect, the New Moon occurs. And on the same day, Uranus the planet of change, chaos, and liberation also changes signs for the first time since 1942, into the sign of Taurus, this starts on May 15th and goes until November 6th!
Uranus is the planet of high vibrational energy and revolution, so as you can imagine having Uranus so active on the day of the New Moon is a pretty big deal. Note: this will affect all the signs, and not just Aries and Taurus!
Many of you are already experiencing the effects of Uranus’s shift into Taurus and may not even realize it. The first of the Earth Signs, Taurus represents our basic survival needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and money. Since Uranus has been in the Sign of Aries for so long now, it helped to create that spark as it’s fire breathed new life into all sorts of situations and projects. But the sign of Taurus helps to sustain life, so themes around manifesting, building, and farming and anything earthy will be our primary focus now. Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus also favors anything beautiful, pleasurable, and sensual. We are not just here to exist or be of service under Uranus in Taurus like we have been doing all these years with Uranus in Aries. Under the sign symbolized by the Bull, Taurus, we are here to live in Earth’s beauty and abundance of nature and to give and receive.
The Sign of Taurus is very much associated with the planet Earth, and since our human existence is literally hurting our home planet, we will see this reflected back to us so we can heal. Therefore, Uranus’s entry into Taurus can be dramatic, mostly because this happens just a few hours after the New Moon comes together.
So other planetary connections will be triggered, and one of those connections can create some serious volatile energy right around the time when the New Moon makes a tense Square to aggressive Mars in Capricorn, while Uranus is the very last degree of Aries, and this is right before it’s shift into Taurus, and that is a very strong placement and time. So make sure to be careful about how you react to folks from May 13th through 17th, because sometimes it’s just not worth a reaction at all.
Uranus stays in the sign of Taurus until November 6, 2018, which gives us some time to get things settled back down, and work on grounding!
Then Uranus actually goes Retrograde and throws itself back in the sign of fiery Aries on November 7th through March 6th, 2019, so we already know how to handle Uranus in Aries, but in Retrograde it’s a whole new story. The urge to start fresh and break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, and to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries. I will explain that more as we get closer to that time.
Uranus finally will re-enter Taurus on March 7th, 2019, for a seven-year journey that won’t end until April 26, 2026. Whatever events or changes that are caused by Uranus in Taurus were probably already started a long time ago.
On May 16th, Mars enters emotionally detached Aquarius, through August 12, this can be a bit unforgiving and aggressive energy. It’s also a dynamic yet erratic energy, we can try to achieve our goals but in a very impulsive manner, and our anger levels can be a bit impersonal. However, we are less concerned with personal power and are more team-players, and cooperative during this time. We are highly attracted to unconventional methods and tend to approach problems more with our minds, as we feel more detached from our emotions.
The Sun drifts into Gemini’s quick-witted and alert presence for a month starting on May 20, making you intensely curious to learn new things. Expand upon the knowledge base you tapped into earlier in the month or learn something totally new. You can be quite the quick study of this energy. Everyone is going to feel this energy, so life might move extremely fast, take a lot of notes during this time and learn to take breaks.
A beautiful Jupiter-Neptune Trine comes exact on the 25th of May, this is the major planetary influence this month and lasts from May 10 to June 12. This encourages hope, generosity, and a sense of community spirit. You may start seeking out a spiritual quest to find the truth during this time. There are going to be many destined encounters with teachers and light-workers of all kinds, like Guru’s, Priests, Psychic’s, and Healers. Someone might even come to you for spiritual guidance. Enlightenment comes through dreams, visions, meditation, and deep spiritual pursuits. It will be more difficult to ignore the sick, poor, and needy during this time, as we are reminded that we are here to take care of each other! As your morals or standards vibrate higher, you will want to find ways to do selfless acts to helps those that need you. Animal and environmental charities will be on our radar even more so than usual. There will be more interest in human rights and refugees, and other innocent victims of war and greed, as social justice will be more important.
Some folks may feel a strong urge to get creative and find an outlet for their enthusiasm through music, dance, art, or theater. Following our dreams for success without having to sacrifice our ego or material possessions is part of this influence, and being wealthy or famous might not be what makes you truly feel happy and content. Romance will be strong and love will be in the air during this time, as others can find you extremely attractive!
On May 29th the Full Moon comes together in the sign of Sagittarius, this energy is all about the adventure or journey! It opens up the greater truths and everything we need to explore our personal freedom. The Sun in Gemini will be opposing the Moon in Sagittarius so our minds will be lit up, as the fiery Sagittarius Moon illuminates our souls wisdom, and helps bring forward information we know on a deep cellular and soul level, it’s the info we carry in our DNA we are talking about here, including past life memories, it is the information we carry deep in our hearts and in our bodies. This very special lunation inspires us to seek a higher perspective on our life’s path, which opens doors to new possibilities and helps us create our future!
Just a little side note:
A special point in the Cosmos is going to be activated on the day the New Moon comes together, this is all about feminine wisdom and power! If you thought the New Women’s movement had peaked with #metoo or #timesup, think again! May is a good time to think about your place in this world as a woman or if you are a man, around the woman you love and support, and your feminine side. Ask yourself where you want to be! If you’re not feeling inspired by life, then now is the time to do something about that and perhaps join a cause that supports your beliefs of course.
There’s a New Moon on Tues, June 13th, which makes this the best time of the Lunar Month to set some powerful intentions. These Wish Lists can be about your future goals. Learning how to work with the cycles of the Moon can be a life-changing experience.
During a New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting seeds of intention from our heart and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what we have and work on manifesting what energy we want to come into our lives next. We can create whatever it is we desire, such as a better life, more money, happiness, love. It really doesn’t matter, but we have to do something physical and spiritual together to make it really happen and stick! And no not everything you want is going to just magically appear. But you will more than likely get put on the path towards your wishes, even if you don’t realize it and that sometimes take time, but it’s nice to know at least we are headed in the right direction.
Sometimes when you Set Intentions with the New Moon energy amazing things happen and you get what you want very quickly!
At least by “Setting Intentions” with the energy of the New Moon, you’ve made it clear to the Universe what path you’d like to begin heading down and that’s a start. Then the energies will begin to line up to get you there, and if you continue to stay persistent and connected, and keep doing this work it truly can change your life circumstances for the better. I am like those old commercials, I don’t just talk about it, I have lived it! LOL
The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your desires. The New Moon is a magical time of beginnings when you can recharge goals and set new ones. During the New Moon, we often experience some major “energy shift.”
Here are some ideas on just how to Manifest under a New Moon:
1. Get clear about something you want and write it down.
2. Share your intention with someone in a supportive way, who will be encouraging.
3. Do something to demonstrate your commitment to your intention. Take even a small action around what it is your asking to create! Send an email, move something in your house, or make a phone call perhaps.
4. Acknowledge that you did what you said you would, and then take the next step.
So have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source Energy, higher-self, Guides, Angels, etc), and work with the New Moons energy to help illuminate the path that will lead you toward your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to be patient and simply allow the time needed, things don’t always happen right away, as we can get taken down certain paths to find our way to what it is we’re looking for. And sometimes magic just happens, you just never know!
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?
Follow the Steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your sacred space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do New Moon work in. Think about where you are going to do this work because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is mainly why you feel so good in your favorite chair, because it’s comfortable and feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot.
You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some sage or Incense and clear the energies, so say a blessing or a special prayer that helps you feel cleared and protected. Next, close your eyes and breathe deeply and call upon your guides, Angels, or higher power and ask to have your sacred space cleared, and then to fill up your special space you are working in with the energy of love and light. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it. Never leave a VOID when working with energy.
Step Two: Set the atmosphere
Set the mood for your New Moon Ritual and burn some special incense, light some candles (colors of candles do have different energies and meanings), and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be a very different experience for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever colors, music, and tools that make you feel calm, centered, happy, and peaceful.
Step Three: Setting Intentions
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with.
Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes, and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to manifest or create. Write a letter, like as if you are talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to bring into your life and be detailed about what you want to see happen and bring in both.
As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about. For example; ask for what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to change and create? Think about your long-term goals and future. Be careful about focusing on the how, why, and when of your goals, focus more on what it is you are choosing and how you want to feel. Only see the ultimate end result and getting what it is you are choosing, in your mind’s eye, don’t focus on how you get it, or the hurdles you have to jump, or sacrifices you may have to make, allow the Universe to shoulder the burden once you have requested what you want and let them take care of the rest.
Step Four: Visualize
It’s time to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest, not over your pumping heart, but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re actually trying to create or manifest. For example: see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Just don’t think it, make sure and FEEL IT as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing!
Allow the Universe to show you which paths to follow over the next 30 days, and look for any signs or symbols that will help you along your journey so you may bring in what you truly desire and let go of what you don’t want! Don’t forget to show gratitude in some way and tell the Universe thank you in advance.
You also might gain some clarity around something or someone that is not serving your higher good and could be blocking you from your desires. So, in other words, pay attention after you’re done doing this work.
On Sunday evening, April 15th the New Moon occurs in the Sign of Aries!
This means you have an opportunity to tap into your creative and courageous side, so take some time starting now to write your Intentions or Wishes down during this New Moon, and see what it is exactly that ignites the fire inside you! This will help you move forward in life. This is a time of inspiration, so you should be focused on what you’d like to create next in your life so you can make your dreams a reality!
New Moon’s are a time of opportunity, and when something new can begin.
This particular New Moon is in fiery Aries, so it is quite strong and potent. This is actually the first New Moon of the “Astrological” New Year, which started on March 20 during the Spring Equinox.
Uranus the messenger and this New Moon both in Aries, make a connection that certainly can liven things up!
Our freedom and sense of independence become more important than usual. Certain generations are being affected quite strongly by the planet of revolution and freedom, Uranus already! This is why there’s such a strong resistance movement underway. And therefore some of you have already been experiencing a surge of energy, that’s pushing you to get out there and fight for certain causes no matter the cost. You need your freedom and space to do things your way!
During this New Moon, some folks can get quite a wake-up call!
This is a sudden awareness about your true calling, destiny, or higher purpose in life. Therefore it can bring in some challenges, but this can help you move past your fears and insecurities, so you’ll take a risk, a leap of faith perhaps, and go after what it is you truly want or desire! The Uranian influence surrounding this New Moon makes it much easier to surrender the ego-driven part of ourselves that doesn’t allow us to just flow with unexpected events so this can help us learn how to change. This particular New Moon is trying to teach us how to be excited about our path in life, and how to follow our passion and trust the Universe enough to let go of any control we think we have and surrender.
The Sun in Aries this month helps strengthen our willpower and desire.
The sign of Aries is part of each and every one of us, (all the Signs of the Zodiac are actually in our Astrology Birth Charts). Aries energy is known for being a Trailblazer that creates a spark. This is a gift from the Cosmos that helps stir up our passions, which creates the fire inside us to move forward and manifest something hopefully new and exciting! If we learn how to handle this New Moon energy with respect and make more positive changes, hopefully, we’ll experience some major transformations.
Mental Mercury is also in the sign of Aries currently, and it goes Direct from being Retrograde on the same day as the New Moon!
Hooray! This is a sign that we can get moving forward again in some area of our life. Since March 22nd (and even back in February during the shadow Retrograde phase), we have been slowed down! As annoying as Mercury in Retrograde can be, it has been trying to help us reconnect with our deepest desires, as it’s brought up the past to learn from through both people and situations. Mercury wants us to unplug from the world and reconnect with ourselves, so we can come out of it renewed and refreshed, but it is challenging living in the time of technology and information. There’s an opportunity to move forward now since we have a new perspective as mental Mercury stations or comes to a stop to move forward and out of Retrograde!
Also, Mercury is meeting up with Chiron the Wounded Healer, which is in its last degree of Pisces.
Chiron is about to shift signs and move into the sign of Aries for the first time in 49 yrs on April 17th! With Chiron in Aries, we take an on our emotional wounds like Warriors, and are no longer going to be in the mood to feel victimized or held down by our pain! This new Chiron energy coming in can help us move away from our trauma like never before. So get ready folks it’s time to heal in a big way!
The sign of Aries is ruled by passionate Mars!
This reminds us to work on ourselves by doing something brave that helps us to be more true to who we are as individuals. Mars is currently in the sign of Capricorn, which helps us to be more focused, disciplined, and willing to use the Aries fire so we can move forward in the right direction and therefore be more productive.
There’s a very strong Saturn influence hanging over this New Moon as well.
Saturn’s influence helps us to be less impatient and impulsive and work on being more strategic and work on long-term planning. On the other side of these energies, we don’t want to let our fears or insecurities stop us from being brave enough to take action. So to make this a successful New Moon we should blend the Aries and Capricorn energies together by taking strategic risks, putting in the time to do the work, and trusting the process the Universe puts us through, no matter what that looks like.
The NEW MOON will occur early Saturday morning in the sign of Pisces. This energy affects each and every one of us in one way or another no matter what Zodiac Sign you are.
This NEW MOON gives us an opportunity to start something new and fresh, as it’s time to start new endeavors.
This is the time to follow the traits of the sign that the New Moon comes together in, and since this NEW MOON will be in the sign of the Fish, Pisces! Therefore we should be working on tolerance and judgment of others, and letting go of worry about people’s imperfections, that includes our own with ourselves.
Allow yourself to take a risk, but make sure it’s a thought out one, or maybe start something that requires you to use your imagination or visualization skills, and also be aware consciously of making time to enjoy spiritual activities that help you to zen out a bit and rejuvenate yourself. This is a great time to share your deep desires and dreams with someone you trust.
Under this very strong Pisces energy, we have the chance to make some pretty important changes to our lives, as we might feel inspired under this NEW MOON and feel motivated enough to take some major leaps of faith!
The NEW MOON this weekend is making a strong connection to wounded healer, CHIRON!
This can put us in touch with our souls potential to help us heal our greatest wounds! This energy is strong and quite potent, so if you’re doing anything spiritual or some kind of energy work it can be quite successful at this time. So you may just have a breakthrough this weekend, because this is a very potent time for changes. You might see things from a different perspective now, and this helps us move away from old learned behaviors and patterns that no longer serve us in our life. So set boundaries now, release old habits and more. Use this NEW MOON and CHIRON’S healing energy to help you make a big difference in your life.
Pay Attention Folks!!!
Even though this NEW MOON is a compassionate one, it’s also making a tense square to impatient MARS, and this affects all of us no matter what your Zodiac Sign may be!
We must check ourselves for feeling impatient, and for making sudden impulsive moves. It can get rowdy out there folks! People are also a tad bit confused about how they are feeling, especially around how they are thinking with mental MERCURY and VENUS both in MARS-ruled Aries!
MARS is on the Cusp of Changing Signs today also, so this mean we can feel extremely vulnerable, aggressive, and even volatile! So if you notice someone getting heated-up or frustrated it’s just for the best that you walk away and deal with them another time, or maybe not at all! Our words can cut like a knife, and people are feeling sensitive already, so they can offend each other much more easily. This all can cause us to make some major changes in our lives that help us start some sort of New Beginning!
The SUN and MOON are also forming a somewhat nice connection to thought provoking URANUS, this means we might struggle with our independence, but also may not be to sure about walking away from a commitment.
The MOON will be in Aries by 2 PM CST, 3 PM EDT time on Saturday, so again if you are one who wants to work with the energies of the MOON and SET INTENTIONS, your best bet is before these times. For those who are well seasoned at doing this kind of work, the MOON will technically go into the VOID on Saturday morning around 8 AM CST, and 9 AM EST times.
March is going to come in like a lion with some pretty intense astrological energy coming in!
This also gives us an opportunity to work on our physical well-being as we move through this month very quickly. There are two Full Moons this month and two planets going Retrograde as well. This last Full Moon that just occurred March 1st, has brought our attention to what we need to heal, simplify, and purify in our lives as the Virgo energy is trying to help us keep a balance in our everyday lives. So continue on this path even after this event is done and over, as you might have learned a lot of important information to use.
We’re still under the watery, dreamy Pisces “Stellium” energy for a few more weeks but it is going to start breaking up here in the next few days slowly, as one planet at a time will slowly shift into fiery Aries and life will be very different. But our attention remains on how we choose to love ourselves and take care of our spiritual health for now, so if you haven’t been taking care of your spirit you have a little bit of time left while we are still in “Pisces Season” until March 22nd! So get to it, zen out somehow, maybe take long walks, practice yoga, meditate, start writing in a journal, join a spiritual group you can learn from, just do whatever you can to work with your spirit, because think about it, that’s the one part of you that’s with you long after you leave this place!
Jupiter goes into its Retrograde phase on March 9th in the sign of Scorpio through July 10th! When Jupiter is Retrograde we should take the time to review our life, ideals, visions, and belief systems. And this year the theme will be around our personal values and our personal integrity! Since Jupiter is in Scorpio there will be issues brought up about our own personal power or lack thereof, obsessions and addictions, and our moral compass. So we will have an opportunity to examine how we feel about our beliefs over the next 4 months, and things won’t be the same once this is over, as many of you will change something about yourself in one way or another.
The New Moon is on March 17 in the sign of Pisces, this influence helps us reconnect with our subconscious mind and better understand the deeper truths about ourselves. Pisces is the very last sign of the Zodiac, it is where we dissolve back to the waters of consciousness and return to source energy! During “Pisces Season” we have an opportunity to cleanse the negative energies from this last Astrological year, so over the next three weeks make sure and get rest and make this a time of healing, reflection, rejuvenation, and spiritual replenishment. Pisces is a mutable water sign, so this New Moon helps support us as we make major shifts on a soul-level to realign ourselves and flow with the energies around us. The New Moon teaches us that if we can let go of our resistance and judgment we can be more compassionate, forgiving, and accepting.
Then we have to deal with mental Mercury’s slow down, as it goes into RETROGRADE for the first time in 2018 on March 22nd in Aries.
I don’t know about all of you, but this has seriously already started for me! While Mercury is Retrograde in Aries the energies heat up as Aries is a cardinal fire sign, which means movement! Get ready, you’ll feel charged up and can get more easily agitated and aggressive. This influence tends to cause us to be more impulsive, impatient, and mouthy! We act fast without much forethought, and can get into trouble if we don’t pay attention! It also can cause unexpected problems if you’re not careful. There will be a new line-up of planets shifting into Aries energy throughout March, it’s going to be very important starting the first week of March to learn how to breathe and think before acting to avoid mistakes and accidents, as the fiery Aries energy starts to kick in.
March will also see another second Full Moon, so it is a Blue Moon as well!
A Full Moon occurs on March 31st in the sign of Libra. Under the Full Moon in Libra, our focus shifts onto our relationships! This is about how we balance out our lives around our partnerships and remain independent at the same time. This energy brings up issues around giving and receiving, but it also helps teach us all about getting what we want without sacrificing our own dreams and values.
